Classic PC Games

Going through and playing/replaying some classic PC games. I missed quite a few due to being a console kid until around 2004 or 2005 when I got my first decent PC. Just started Dungeon Siege and I have to ask; am I wrong in thinking it won't get much more complex than this? From what I'm seeing on the Wiki, there's no usable skills or anything, just increase numbers, increase hit chance and damage. Debating whether to push forward or move onto one of the other thousands games on my list.

Summer Game Fest / Summer of Gaming Megathread #1

>What is Summer Game Fest?

Bringing the world together to celebrate video games from the comfort of home. Summer Game Fest is a season of digital video game events from publishers, select playable content, in-game events, and more to be announced.

>What is Summer of Gaming?

IGN is proud to announce our new Summer of Gaming event, a global, digital event set to begin this June to bring you the latest news and impressions around upcoming games and the next generation of console hardware.

>No but really, what the fuck?

Two different attempts to replace E3, one by IGN and the other by Geoff Keighley. Basically they are just aggregating whatever streams companies are doing but there is supposedly original coverage. The most interesting stuff seems to be happening around June, but Summer Game Fest is spread out over four months.

Skyrim Mod Suggestions

Recently started playing Skyrim again. Anyone here have a suggestion for good mods to try out?

I'll start: Gypsy Eyes Caravan

It's a neat concept, and when I found it I immediately started having ideas for building play-throughs that could be built around the mod. My only complaints are loading up a save with the wagon nearby sometimes make the model glitch out, and driving the wagon over uneven terrain looks kinda janky, but otherwise works pretty well.

Escape Velocity: Override Remaster

For those that don't know, Escape Velocity was an old series of space exploration RPGs that built off of Elite. They were really popular when Mac gaming was big, but nearly went extinct when Windows took over (only the last game, Nova, had a Windows port). If you've played stuff like Starsector, Endless Sky, Transcendence, or 3030 Deathwar; this is one of the series' that helped to laid the groundwork for those.

The original designer of the second game in the series (Override) is working on a remaster of the game along with an engine that'll support all the content from the other titles (he doesn't have the rights to them, but there can be fanmade ports this way).

The kickstarter is at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cosmicfrontier/cosmic-frontier-override/

New owners now and Exalt just went into open beta. I'm cautiously optimistic about the proposed changes. Drop your IGN if you want to join the original /v/ guild Disciples of Vidya.

/v/, I need your knowledge to help identify this game I had as a kid.

The format was something like an adventure game for kids, where you would go from screen to screen and interact with different objects. You could not see the player character I think, just the setting.

The setting was fantasy/medieval. I think the story involved some kid getting 'turned into' the main character and having to go on this adventure.

There's a part where you go into a castle dungeon, and there's some kind of creature chained up, and you can either help him or not. If you help him then it turns out he's evil and gets you.

The main character looked kind of like a Lemmings lemming or a Fraggle or something. He wore a medieval doublet and robin hood cap I think, and had shoes that look kind of like brown socks, pic related almost.

He was on the cover of the box. The box the game came in was maroon colored.

What games are there that can give me the feels like these ones, games that end with a sort of deep philosophical and emotional impact that changes you for the rest of your life afterwards. Not just games meant to hook you on a dopamine chain with a played out formula, but something thats actually art, something that gives an experience thats actually meaningful.

Don't forget about all the things you're supporting when you consider any THQ Nordic games.

If you use Steam and want to ignore all games that THQ Nordic publishes, go to their publisher page while you're logged in, then click on the little gear icon below where it says "Beta" and choose "Ignore this creator."

These games are being published by THQ Nordic. For those who may not be aware or who may have forgotten, THQ Nordic had a marketing effort where it intended to gain attention using a website that is known primarily for its support of child pornography, as well as for support of Neo-Nazism, doxxing, and other extremely damaging behaviours.

THQ Nordic's provided no response to this fiasco except for an apology claiming they did not do enough research. As the website is unlisted by Google, they had spoken to the board owner about removing "nasty stuff", and content was viewable both before and during the campaign, this claim is beyond belief. The individuals responsible are known not to be rogue PR interns, but go up to THQ Nordic's board. THQ Nordic has not dealt with the individuals responsible.

Consider that by supporting their games, you are supporting a publisher that is complicit with child pornography.

Someone asked me if I would allow a /hgg/ board on 9chan. I believe that the exemptions listed by 18 U.S. Code § 1466A(a)(2)(B) safely cover video games as an art form, and the US National Endowment for the Arts recognizes this. There should be no problems, but I'd need someone with clout and assurances they can run /hgg/ well to email me at josh@9chan.org if you want to reserve a board name with 3 characters.

A platform when good conventions for many genres were established, leading to interesting oddities with terrible UI. Likely the lowest good-to-bad game ratio outside of Tiger Electronics. The GBA and Wii can't outshovelware it.

Deconstructing Dark Souls

An overrated game:

Dark Souls lacks in audio atmosphere; it has cookie cutter sound effects and an underwhelming soundtrack. Relatively intricate level design makes up for a mostly visually dull and generic setting. Dark Souls fails to synergistically combine the elements of audio and visuals in a compelling way.

Unnecessary amounts of stats, cluttered menu, unintuitive navigation.

Gameplay: D
While fans may liken Dark Souls combat to puzzle-solving because of pacing, timing, and locational strategy, these elements exist in entirety in most games but at a faster pace. Dark Souls is too easy and the combat produces a low skill ceiling. Ironically, if one thinks Dark Souls is difficult, this may signify general low skill at video games. It also lacks actual puzzles.........w h y.

Story: Can go either way, but I respect the minimalist approach.

I think Dark Souls is mainly revered by weebs, cucks, doomers and incels. Would've been better if made by Capcom.

MMO Drama thread

Did any of you niggers who played MMOs ever go through drama with your guild or whatever? I like these type of threads because I'm curious about the stories people share. I had small drama that resulted in our group getting disbanded but I was the one who actually started the fire. Here's my story:

>In 2011 when I was 15
>Discover this MMO called Wizard101
>It's for kids but whatever
>Actually have fun with it, played it every day after school and even made friends in the game
>At the time in the game the max level was 50
>Game is free-to-play but you can only play in certain zones until you pay
>Higher level zones you can get better drops and also sell them for a lot of gold
>Game actually had a cool housing system, I'd say one of the best in any MMO
>Problem was the houses cost a lot of gold to buy
>First few months of playing the game I never subbed to it
>Still wanted to get a house
>Come up with a brilliant idea
>You can't trade currency in the game and there's only one type of item you can trade, and they're called treasure cards
>Certain treasure cards can actually sell for quite a bit of gold
>Come up with idea to scam people out of their treasure cards
>Go to area where a lot of noobs hang around at and shout "TRADING CROWNS FOR TREASURE CARDS"
>Crowns were currency you could buy with real money, you can't actually trade them but you can buy a crown item and gift the item
>People fall for the scam, they add me as a friend to trade thinking they're gonna get crowns
>I take their treasure cards and teleport away, remove them from friend list
>Do this so much I eventually get enough gold to buy a house
>My other noob friends ask me how I got a house at my level
>Tell them how, some think I'm an asshole at first but I convince them it's a good way to get gold
>Decide to form a thieves group, there actually wasn't a create a guild option so we pretended
>Would go to areas and I'd show them how I scammed people
>Came up with idea to have some of them pretend the trade went through and they would shout thank you at me for crowns
>Eventually higher level players see this and they fall for the scam
>Me and my friends teleport back to my house
>All show each other what we've taken from other players
>We all feel proud of ourselves
>Group started off with me and three other friends
>Eventually I had the idea to recruit random noobs to our group
>Me and my friends would be in the starter zone messaging random noobs if they want to join our group
>The ones who say yes we add them as friends and they all teleport back to my house
>Explain to them what we do
>Some acted like moralfags and said what we did was wrong, others thought it was cool and joined us
>Had the idea to pimp out the noobs and tell them since I've told them about this idea they have to give half their earnings to me
>They went along with it
>Rack up so much fucking gold over time I end up getting a better house and decorating it with a lot of cool furniture
>Went from group of 4 to 20 to eventually 50
>Would all be spread out across realms and zones scamming people
>Around this time is when the group began its downfall
>Some of the members who had higher level friends requested that I invite them into the group
>Mistakenly went along with it
>Soon the higher level players questioned why I was the leader, tried to form their own groups and take my members with them
>Some of the new recruits joined them and some members who've been in the group for a while turned their back on me
>Infighting in the group began, everyone threatening each other and getting into random arguments when we see each other in zones
>No gold was being made, instead spent time arguing with each other
>Members got frustrated and left the group
>My friends decide to spend more time on actually playing the game
>I still wanted to scam people and make gold, but my name was being spread all throughout areas by rival groups tipping people off that I'm a scammer
>Eventually got reported enough times to have my character muted
>Decide to make a new account and play the game normally
>Years later quit

Hope you niggers enjoyed the story

I want to make a Battle Royal on personified countries

(autists only thread)

With this game my most major focus is creating lulzy anthropomorphised versions of countries

a few ideas I have for countries

European Union would be represented as a underweight tall lanky effeminate male wearing tight dark blue jeans and and full

sleeved shirt with raindow colors all over it and with the yellow stars of the EU on the chest, while he waves a EU flag in hand.

America would be represented as a fat balding brunette with his belly sticking out at the bottom of his american flag colored sleeveless shirt that is also a bit torn up and dirty, he would wield an rifle(trivia fact he is the only character with a gun as weapon).

Mrs America would be represented as a morbidly obese niggress with a huge afro held together in the back by two huge pigtails, wears a mcdonalds employee hat, wears a barely fitting pink shirt that has a gold text that says "IMA BOSS ASS BITCH". Her weapon is a big ass fucking gucci purse. Additional notes she also wears womens nike shoes and is the fastest character in the game.

Germany would be represented as a tall muscular blonde blue eyed soldier wearing a brown diplomatic uniform while wielding a flammenwerfer and a kettensage.

Austria would be represented as a short brunette with a interesting mustache and wears the same uniform as germany. He wields a picture of Germany that appears to have a lipstick mark on it. His special ability is too raise his hand in a lulzy way.

Last Russia would be represented as a bald somewhat fat male that wears a brown usanka with a red star, and a huge think winter coat made of fresh bear fur. He cannot walk normally as he always has skates on his feet, and also he wields a massive vodka bottle.

Alright that is all the ideas i have does anyone else want to add on to my ideas?

>inb4 the kikes at (((New Blood))) or similar end up cancelling this game (((Bernstein))) style

This game is a retro action-adventure platformer inspired by both Metroidvania and Duke Nukem. I am the dev of this game and I thought I could spare some Steam keys for it before it gets on the Steam store page (still pending approval by Valve, working on it).

Please enjoy.

High risk; high reward

What are your favorite examples of games that give you the most if you invest much.
For me its currently both Risk of Rain games. I played the shit out of them and it just feels so good to get 16x the items after fighting 16 bosses.

Why do Mario spin-off rosters consistently suck ass?

What is it with Mario spin-offs (Party, Tennis, Golf, Kart, etc.) and ignoring 60% of the Mario series? Wart has never been back for a spin-off; Wario Land characters are forgotten; Wario Ware characters doesn't seem to be considered at all; no Luigi's Mansion portrait ghosts ever; Toadsworth got cucked by Toadette in his brief window of relevance; no Paper Mario or Mario & Luigi characters ever; Donkey Kong characters aside from DK himself get ignored; and the Super Hornio Bros. will never make a video game appearance despite Nintendo owning the rights. They have so many characters to work with, and they still come up with shit like Baby Daisy and Gold Mario. What is wrong with Nintendo?

JRPGs on Switch

I feel like I would like this console more if there were more JRPGs. I loved all the odd middle market JRPGs on the Vita. Conception 2, Dungeon Travelers 2, Shiren the Wanderer, Demon Gaze, etc.

Theres not no JRPGs, but not nearly as many and a lot are ports or Squeenix games. I miss it, bros.

How to get started as a streamer

So I have been trying to get started streaming video games, currently as a hobby while hoping to be able to make small amounts of money eventually. I dont plan on quiting my day job or ever going full streamer for income, and I also dont want to dye my hair or play Forked Knife. So my question is what advice is there to get going as a streamer when it comes to building an audience, promoting your stream without being annoying, and without having to constantly manipulate SEO? I have intentionally picked a smaller upcoming stream platform so that its a smaller pond that I can grow with as oposed to jumping into the big bloated ponds (youtube, twitch, mixer, etc) and I went with a more casual platform as opposed to jumping into the alt-lite platforms (dlive).

I don't have all the fancy stream equipment, just my gaming PC with a single monitor and streamlabs/OBS and what skills I have taught myself along the way (some photo/video/audio editing) and I mostly want to focus on building an active audience to interact with and play games with. I know this is probably not the best possible choice for a place to get advice, but I feel like I would get a more honest string of advice here as opposed to going elsewhere.

Are games getting too samey or am I just old?

I haven't really done much multiplayer gaming since vanilla TF2 but today I started to get the itch again.

First I looked into Valorant. It basically looked like Counter Strike maps with TF2 graphics and Overwatch type abilities. Uninspired garbage.

Then I checked out Apex Legends. The cinematic trailer was full of MCU type quips and the graphics and gameplay looked straight out of Fortnite. More uninspired garbage. It didn't help that the gameplay trailer was full of nigger music.

Finally I checked out Bleeding Edge. This one actually looked like it might have fun gameplay. I liked that the melee was about doing combos sort of like a fighting game but I don't know if the actual game objectives would be any fun. I also found the character designs to be extremely unappealing. Cartoony bullshit with a bad art style and one of the characters was a pink haired land whale dyke looking thing. Who finds that appealing?

Gaming sucks now. I'm almost tempted to try to teach myself to program again even though I can never seem to get very far with that. I'd like to make some kind of ctf game with at least one 2fort type map and interesting character abilities along the lines of what Super Monday Night Combat did. It's as if the only way to get a good game now is to make it myself. Or maybe over two decades of gaming has just made everything feel the same.

Just finished my final run of this today. I really enjoyed it despite being way too easy. Either way, it's gotten me in the mood for more JRPGs, preferably action based. Any suggestions? My favorites are probably Dark Cloud 1/2, Ys Oath and Origins, and Trials of Mana at this point.

Fallout 4

I hate this game more than Fallout 76. I can live with 76 because I just look at it like a spinoff game that doesn't necessarily impact the future of the main series, it's not fallout 5. Fallout 4 though IS the main series, they thought this was in line with what Fallout should be and once they dumb something down they don't undo it, they thought the lazy radiant quests and muh exploration was fine so long as they slapped the fallout sticker on it would be fine. What makes it that much worse is that it was never their series to begin with, unlike TES.

Why do most point-and-click adventures have shit endings?

>final puzzle completely brainless, rarely requires multiple actions
>ending doesn't conclude the plot, will be maybe several lines of dialogue or a complete non-sequitur joke
>will sometimes have a completely retarded twist near the end that makes the whole story pointless
>pic somewhat related

Is it just that the ones that I played were dumb?
