RE2 remake

God this looks like shit. I knew that after 7 they were gonna fuck it up and this is how it's gonna turn out, but I still ended up being surprised. There's literally zero Resident Evil anything here, why not just make a new IP…

It's one thing if they were just making uninspired sequels but all these faceless modern """"realistic"""" remakes with non-existent art direction and atmosphere, and that minimalistic fucking inventory with black translucent rectangles and plain white text in every game…

Non-tranny speedruns

As I'm sure you all know modern speedrunning is 90% trannies and attentionwhores but speedruns themselves can 'sometimes be interesting to watch, more for the deeper exploration of game mechanics and engine quirks than completing the games quickly in most cases though. With that in mind let's have a thread where we try and collection non-shit speedruns that can be worth watching. That means picking them based on the following rules:

1. No tranny speedrunners and no tranny commentators.

2. Speedrunner or people commentating aren't acting too much like faggots in general i.e. it should be watchable not just for cringe value

2. Some commentary to explain what's going on since the average human being isn't an autist who understands this shit. Could make an exception for interesting tool-assisted videos

3. Should be interesting to watch i.e. not just glitching through walls constantly and isn't abusing the same bug/trick almost exclusively e.g. Half Life 1 and 2 and bunny hopping constantly, that shit's boring after the first few minutes. So variety in what they do, mechanically interesting, tricks are based off of deeper understandings of the engine and so on. If it's just a faggot who's using pure muscle memory don't bother posting it, one good idea is to avoid Any% and go for things listed as 100%, All Missions, Glitchless or so on since they usually feature some actual gameplay.

4. Not too many duplicate games maybe if they're interestingly different categories or something that's ok

Common sources below but some will put non-marathon videos with commentary up on their own channels and these are much better since they lack donation cancer:

Elona thread

ITS THAT TIME AGAIN

Yes its time to piss on monsters, start off as a snail, play tag with a catsister, find a living weapon, watch your tactics get nerfed into the ground, watch your archer charge into melee range, and mutate until you die.

>what the fuck is this

A jap roguelike with an overworld and no permadeath, with a bunch of sand box elements, its tough to nail down. Can be played a ton of different ways like being a farmer who grows magic items as well as veggies, a piano player who get rocks thrown at him, be a valiant warrior who breaths fire, be a magical caster and nuke the map killing everything including your pets, be charismatic as fuck and have lots of followers. Expect to get you ass kicked a bit but once you get going its nice.

See end of OP for download

Looks like the most recent is 1.81, get that shit. Elona is a game made by some jap named Noa. Elona plus is a mod of that game made by Ano.

WARNING there has been a lot of nerfs and the adding of a thirst mechanic in the most recent update. There was also a pissing mechanic for doing things like marking your territory and pissing on monsters to make them mad. Hopefully the changes stop after a while.

>Elona custom

see end of OP for download

Will be called 1.81 elona custom, has to match the base you are installing it to, so only elone plus 1.81 will work with elona custom 1.81. INSTALL ME TO THE ELONA DIRECTORY

This brings about some quality of life changes and general improvements to the game as well as letting you customize things like pet AI, teach them skills, makes it easier to feed them, highly recommended. I believe you just extract the game to the elona main folder and launch from the coffee cup icon. Made by some qt named annabannana and more recently taking up the torch a guy named bloodyshade. The version of custom has to match the version of elona plus

>elona Omake

Another offshoot of Elona made by some faggot. Contains adjustment to game difficulty, new npcs, knights of the little girls, CAN BE A LITTLE GIRL, A FUCKING RIVAL, dungeon events like tag and a challenge to kill a monster, alternatively you can tell the challenger to shut up slut, tries to give other npcs a chance to shine, a pudit arena, a new factions feature which ties into NPC appearances, literally an entire page of new shit ,and Imouto apocalypse which is exactly what is sounds like. Highly recommended to give it a try whether you are starting off or have played plus and want something new. A bit more forgiving and tries to move with you instead of throwing you in. It comes in Omake, and Omake overhaul. Overhaul I THINK is the most recent download. Ask in thread if you need help.

Mabinogi Private Server: I Thought Classic Didn't Mean Modern Edition

Mabinogi is a very unique MMO that isn't just another WoW clone. There are no classes, just a bunch of different skill types and you can invest in any of them as you like. This game places a large emphasis on non-combat skills, and has many activities to do besides fighting enemies. Mabinogi Classic is a private server that dates back to around November 2012, and the latest mainstream quest line is G17.

IF YOU DECIED TO PLAY

Be sure to make a human for your first character, even if you don't want to play a human. Humans can travel to the leader of Giants and the leader of Elves to obtain character slots of each, but Giants and Elves can't do this. These extra characters are at least good for extra bank space, and can be used as mules.

Final Fantasy XI: MMORPG boomers

we're playing FFXI on an oldschool 75-cap private server called Era, with 4x rates (or 1x rate + special benefits if you're up to the challenge), and quite a bit of custom content/functions/QoL improvements, and i'm inviting people to see how far they can go. doesn't matter if you're an XI veteran or a complete newbie to the game, we'll take you in and hammer the grind into you.

bringing this thread here from /v/ because it gets very little visibility there and dies really fast. hopefully it'll survive longer here without pointless bumps.

ie: /tell Nel -message-

>is the game FUN

the game is a classic tab-targeting turn based mmo. its hard, but it also has a lot of versatility in the roles you play. jobs aren't race or gender locked, you can swap them at any time although they each have their own individual exp bar and level. Enemies will start to periodically kick your ass if you don't cooperate with other players beyond level 20ish unless you really know what you're doing, and that's part of what makes it so fun. there are no markers or autowalk "lines" like in modern ones. so explore away, Sneak & Invisible are your best friends.

>the UI fucking sucks OP!

it definitely takes some getting used to. attached is a little guide on how to make it suck less.

>i keep getting X error when Y

make a post and ask away, maybe we can help. current FFXI private server technology is a bunch of code snipets held together with boogers but it keeps improving little by little.

/tg/ vidya

I have been meaning to make this thread for a while but I have been putting it off mainly cause I have no real idea how to write it up properly.

I wanted a thread for discussion of games like Pathfinder, D&D but also for wargames like Flames of War in vidya format. Like games that exist, ones that don't, how they would work, anything that would translate well to vidya even if it leaves dice and pen and paper behind etc. Fags follow?

Kenshi Thread

I've been debating whether or not to make this thread due to the game being indev but fuck it I kinda want to talk about it.

What is it?

Kenshi is an open ended sandbox game where you can control a squad of guys and try not to starve to death, get killed by bandits, get killed/eaten by wildlife, get eaten by cannibals, get enslaved, or get beaten up and put in jail for being poor.

The games uses swords and crossbows with a jap flair to it. Instead of longswords you get katanas and shit and drink sake.

You can kinda choose how you want to play. Lone warrior with a dog? Group of thieves? Build a base then get kicked out by bandits and taxed by holy nation niggers? Raid old ruins and get one shotted by pissed off robots? There are a few different ways. Its been in dev for a while but the faggot has picked up speed and is rapidly approaching the 1.0. He even got in "luxury" features like dismemberment, robot arms, and crossbows added in a big update. At some point the ability to make your own fullblow faction will come which is sorely needed right now but I have a feeling that will be with the next update with the rest of the map.

My one complaint is that it can get kinda boring without as long term goal, you can build a bit of a settlement right now but without the faction system it still feels a bit off. Good fun for a while though.

I have the gog version but I don't really know where to upload it if an anon has a suggestion.

The Old Way - The Death of the Community Vidya Stream

The year was 2009. Twitch didn't exist, and video game streaming was just starting to get big. A majority of stream channels were broadcast through Livestream, used Chatango as their chat service, and were very much group efforts. Back then, video streams had a virtue to strive for: non-stop video game streams whenever possible. Each channel had a handful of streamers, taking shifts to provide content for that singular channel. Because all the streamers shared the same channel and chatroom, and there was almost always something to watch, communities were able to form. There were always people in the chatrooms, even when the stream was offline. They were more than viewers. They were regulars, perhaps even friends.

Now, every channel is a one-man-show; each streamer has their own channel, their own chatroom, their own fractured community. They show up when a stream happens, and leave when it's over.

I long for the Old Way.

A free 2D submarine sim set in the oceans of Europa similar to SS13. It will be going on steam soon but its still free for now. It can be pretty fun trying not to drown or get crushed by pressure. There is also the wide variety of *friendly wildlife

Pro tips :

Close doors

Grab an air mask

If the sub takes on water hold on because you are about to slam into the bottom or sink into the abyss.

If the reactor gets submerged it will cool off and shut down. Add more fuel rods to get fusion going again.

Grab a spare tank too if the sub has one.

I wanted to make a thread in case anons wanted to play here and there. Its more fun with a smaller sub and less craziness of a game night.

I'll be throwing up a room and starting a game now.

Name Niggle with a PW of rage

I'll be hanging out for a bit.

Monster Hunter general

and other assorted hunting games

WHICH MON HUN DO I START WITH

Depends on which system you have. Everything since Freedom Unite and onwards is good for starting the series. All of them can be emulated depending on how good of a computer you have. Monster Hunter World is a special case where the game is casualized beyond belief and has very little content along with Denuvo on PC and subscription based multiplayer on consoles so choose at your own risk.

No matter which one you start with get ready for a lot of time investment. You'll need to put in hours to get anywhere with hunts taking anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes depending on how good you are.

OTHER ASSORTED HUNTING GAMES

There have been many knock offs in the genre with Monster Hunter itself being a knock off of Phantasy Star Online. Each one differs a lot from each other with most being easier than Monhun.

>Phantasy Star Online

A general for it already exist if you're interested in playing that

>Toukiden

Closest to Monster Hunter in terms of gameplay but with differences like minimal item management and AI partners. Toukiden 2 is notable for being MHW before MHW got released

>God Eater

Anime Monster hunter. Has AI partners and is really easy

>Soul Sacrifice

One of the few neat "clones" destined to rot on Vita. Only similar to monster hunter in the general multiplayer structure

I will probably elaborate further on different monster hunter games later on but I just wanted this first post out of the way.

Given the speed of /vg/ it's probably a good idea if we just make a combined thread for open source games and gaming on Linux. Personally I mostly play FOSS games on Windows and a surprising number are pretty great.

City Builders

Time for a thread on city builders and whatever the hell genre Tropico and Stronghold are. I haven't tried Tropico 5 yet, any idea if it's worth a shot? The DLC jewing put me off a bit. Is it better to start with the first game instead?

Oriental Empires

How about we finally get a game going edition…

Link was lost in last thread, but I got good that it seems to be working fine under Linux again, for some odd reason.

So even if just a few of us, what do we say if we schedule a game any time soon?

7th Gen

True, this gen is overshadowed by its prodigious predecessor and true, this is the gen that saw the introduction of all the cancerous elements that ruined gaming forever, but it didn't happen overnight, I think there are some quality early to mid life titles, progressively more and more buried under the mountain of normalfag garbage. And in general it's an interesting gen to talk about, with the atmosphere of hype and excitement for the future during its launch days and the slow decay into modern gaming. It's like a story arc with pottery.

tfw there's no cool startup collage video like with the 6th gen :^(

WHERE ARE THE WEAPONS?

While a few weapons have been introduced (flare gun, kritzkreig, gunboats, LnL, Direct Hit). Right now its still on the backburner. We're looking for help for weapons, some would be easier to do than others (backburner, paintrain)

Bioware

Pre 2010

>Start out as a company made by medical Doctors of all things who decide to make a mecha game of all things, signs up with Interplay cause they were the big cheese at teh time

>Moved onto RPG's after it didn't sell

>Doctors leave to go back to malpracticing medicine

>Baldurs Gate releases and has massive success

>Suddenly got spotlight but for whatever reason make a sequel to MDK before making more RPG's

>Eventually Interplay goes belly up and broken up but doesn't really effect Bioware so badly

>Make highly acclaimed KOTOR and less well known Jade Empire

>Pandemic Studios and Bioware for whatever reason joined forces in part of VG Holding Corp which gets bought by EA under suspicious circumstances

>Regardless, soldiers on and releases Mass Effect which itself is widely received but not entirely a huge hit at the time.

>Before being joined with Mythic Entertainment, release a Sanic game for whatever reason

>Work begins on TORTanic

>Suddenly Dragon Age which for it's time was incredibly dated and kickback to KOTOR

Post 2010

>Release Mass Effect 2 which (((journalists))) loves and normalfags soak up but a few of their traditional audience feel is a wrong approach.

>Dragon Age 2 releases which everyone blanks from memory

>TORTanic, which is what happens when you make a Single Player game and try to sell it as an MMO

>Then Mass Effect 3 happens

>Pretty much nothing for a few years till new Dragon Age game comes out which is considered okay

>Meantime massive layoffs and restructures of the company

>Fast forward to present day, Anthem is coming out and is supposedly a disaster that managed to knock out EA servers with it

So where did it all go wrong for Bioware? Other than EA

Nintendo games

Why don't you guys like Nintendo games? i see an hostile attitude towards their games here and i don't visit /v/ oftenly(or any other vidya board, i'm not that interested in discussing games online but i visit these places from time to time)but i also see lots of hate, calling it stuff for normalniggers or some shit. I may be biased since i kind of grew up with exclusively nintendo games, my first console was the gamecube, then the wii and the first time i bought a console was the wii u, which was the biggest waste of money i've ever made in my life. Just wish to know if you think the company is overrated or something, i don't particularly hold them in high regard but i also don't have much experience beyond them.

Farming

Hey boyes, should we try get a mp session of this game going on?

If you don't see the appeal, I found that this game can be extremely comfy if playing with people.

Just the work simulator feels good for those of us who don't actually work, but specifically farming is nice, caring and watching your crops grow.

However, this can be much better if playing with others, because of course it makes a whole more lively, this version specifically allows for multiples farm owners, co-workers and that crap.

Of course it depends if we could manage to make the pirate version work multiplayer, so should we try?

Don't touch my pom-pom, kupo

aka Final Fantasy thread

Do you think there's ever gonna be a mainline entry in the series past XV at this point? XV was a trashfire but it made money which tells Sqeenix to continue, but they are so creatively bankrupt they had to recobble a pre-existing property to even make XV, meaning they had nothing on their hands prior. Now they have even less, no projects in limbo, nothing. Unless they're gonna turn VII remake into XVI, lol. I find it highly unlikely that SE is capable of creating an entirely original world from scratch anymore, especially since they are bleeding talent. They will doubtless try and milk XV and VII remake for all their worth, but as things stand, dare I say that FF is fucking dead? Remember when they were sure it's gonna get to XX no prob? Good days.

Star Wars Vidya Thread

Thrawns Revenge Edition

Allow me a moment anons to shill a mod for EAW that heavily unfucks a lot of shit and introduces a lot of great features without having content bloat which is all so common with many a mod and actually seems to not be the bad kind of autistic: Imperial Civil War

What is it?

High quality mod set in the old EU from the aftermath of the Battle of Endor to just before the Vong kicks off. Pretty much could be EAW 2 for all purposes. It has several time periods and eras to choose from plenty of Galactic Conquest scenarios to sink your teeth into that are actually fun and interesting to play and not just challenge mode or unit spamfest for the millionth time. You do have to think tactically in this mod and because there are various factions at play typically you have to think "Do I want to take this world or will I let someone else do the work first for me?" and that's before unit deployment which also isn't a simple case of spam best unit but you need to look at battle and see what forces are best to deploy and typically a well balanced fleet will beat simple Star Destroyer spam in most cases.

So what changes does it make?

To give a short list:

>Graphical overhaul from effects to textures - still a lot of work in progress.

>Adds in 3 way space battles - albeit this feature is a bit limited and usually is formed by a raiding party coming up your ass

>Tweaks space combat to make it more tactical, so you need to have a think about what ships you can deploy

>Adds in the ability to board and capture enemy vessels in galactic conquest which you can then later use and it will even change what starfighters they deploy

>Adds in the ability to withdraw certain units from battle in galactic conquest, particularly useful when you have carriers that have spent all their fighters

>Adds in dozens of unique factions albeit not all are playable

>Detailed Galactic Conquest Campaigns that have a lot of effort put into them

>Attempts at unfucking ground combat which it manages a bit although their main overhaul is still yet to come

<Torpedoes and Missiles no longer go through shields which I am on the fence about as it makes bombers kind of useless, speaking of which:

<Starfighters come in large squadrons now and much harder to hit which is nice but their reduction in damage makes them kind of pointless unless swarmed in large numbers which makes me wish they would give them a buff and make them feel a lot more useful rather than frame destroying decoration pieces

So anons, when are you going to Remove Rebel Scum?

Anyone try out Total Chaos?

Content finished version of the game just came out and it has some grimy/rusty aesthetics that I really like and can be seen in games like Out of Hell, Killing Floor and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

It's based on GZDoom, but it's already pre packaged, no need for a basegame .wad either since it uses FreeDoom, also prepacked.

Dominions 5 Thread: R'lyeh good edition

Dominions 5 is a strategy game created by 2 Swedish professors, who make games to entertain themselves and their friends, they've been working on Dominions for like 15 years and have steadily updated it as the years have gone by.

The game blends all matter of ancient cultures, and mythologies as each nation's god leads them into a divine apocalyptic war to become the true god, the Pantokrator. There are 8 different types of magic, and hundreds of spells and units to choose from as you battle for supremacy.

The 5th version of the game which has been out since November features a redone blessing system where you can customize the blesses your sacred warriors receive from their god; and real time combat where all the action in a battle happens at once.

8ch has it's own dominions discord which will provide a link at the end of this post, which is mainly used to set up blitz games (quick games) however any new long term games will be mentioned in the thread for any users who don't want to use Discord.
