What are you playing? Video games madness 09/17/2019 (Tue) 21:24:04 No. 9 [Reply] [Last]
What video games do you play to escape the madness around you?
I keep coming back to Anno 1602, an old classic but still fun to play and no indoctrination, political correctness, LGBT or any other bullshit in it. Pure calm and enjoiable vidya.

>>450 wish the dwarves swore and talked about beer a bit more, but otherwise it's an awesome game
>>9 Battlefield 1. To me, it's the best online FPS ever made. I just wish it was more historically accurate as far as races go. The European nations should be White, and Turkey can be Turks obviously, but we don't need niggers in the German army for example.
I played tf2 with the cuckchan /v/an and now im torrenting doom 3 might play it tomorow though
>>70 Excellent choice, anon! I've been playing that, Stellaris, and CrossCode.
>>507 Doom 3 is great. I forget if I had to tweak nvidia settings or not but I got it to run at 120 hz no problems. nice game to play with headphones game in the dark and the cold.

This thread is for discussion of Nintendo Gameboy hardware released between 1989 and 2003, as well as games and accessories released during that time.

How are you guys doing? Enjoying the new backlit screen mods?

>>517 There's a ton of fun, old school games that were made for 80's computers and consoles exclusively, so it's not just arcade stuff. Anyway I was born in the 70's and my first occasion to play Joust was at my relative's house, on their Atari 2600. And I'm perfectly content with any port of the game that plays well. I didn't actually spend much time at bars/arcades until my late teens, and by that time I was already accustomed and loved the hell out of 8-bit computer games, including arcade ports. And even today I actually prefer to play computer and 80's console ports of arcade games, simply because it's much easier to emulate those systems compared to MAME (which effectively needs a botnet computer, and I use exclusively ARM boards that don't do speculative exectuion or require any kind of weird firmware blobs). Plus I just don't want to deal with all the MAME updates contantly and tracking down/updating huge sets of rom files. It's just a lot simpler and better for me this way.
>>522 >>522 >Plus I just don't want to deal with all the MAME updates contantly and tracking down/updating huge sets of rom files. It's just a lot simpler and better for me this way. You don't need to worry about this. Just dload a Rom pack for your version You don't even need to update

>>524 Yeah that might work, if I get an old enough version of MAME. Allegedly MAME2003 ought to run okay on my hardware. So I might get to it eventually, but it's a low priority, since I already downloaded all the TOSEC and "No-Intro" collections for old computers and consoles. Plus I also download my own individual roms for games I care about, and organize them by platform, with screenshots, manuals, and whatever else might be useful.
>>525 This guy did something like that on his MAME 0.78 (2003) and gave dload links. You can try if you're interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw330wZZ6dg

Roadwar 2000 is also interesting, even though it's more of a strategy game. The Apple IIGS, Atari ST, and Amiga versions are quite a bit nicer-looking than the DOS one, if that matters to you (in fact, even the C64 port looks better!)

>>512 >>511 >>510 >>509 >>508 >>506 Thanks for the reccomendations, sorry for not replying sooner, I was pretty drunk when I posted this. It's not an RPG, but if you haven't played the first jak&daxter then I strongly recommend it (PCSX2 worked for me), just don't bother 100%ing it. Hopefully it may bring you some joy. I only played it lately, so no chance this is a nostalgia-goggles recommendation, it's genuinely fun.

What do you think of the current state of the game?

Do you think it has much longer to live?

>>430 Airblast Reduce it's size, currently it's too fucking wide, length wise I think it's fine, but as it stands the airblast's size is roughly still as absurd as it is in this video made by Sievseg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1g2x4b_Byg This is undoubtedly a disproportionate amount of area coverage, make the hitbox smaller. Additionally remove the soft autoaim mechanic where anything you reflect gets automatically redirected towards the crosshair, being able to nullify an enemy's damage should be more than reward enough. Flame particle mechanics We already have a histscan stream damage based class in the game, we already have a hitscan burst damage harassment class as well. We also have projectile burst damage classes, but what we don't have in the game, is a stream damage projectile based class. Think of old arena game's super nailgun/plasma guns but with afterburn mechanics, however with some concessions to make as well. Make the flamethrower particles have the exact same trajectory as the syringe guns, meaning it has a parabolic arc so "gravity" affects them. Remove rampup damage bullshit from the blue moon update, and make the hitboxes roughly 10 hammer units by 10 hammer units wide, this will require players to aim their stream of "projectiles" and will effectively kill WM1. To further prevent spam either make the flamethrower shoot in bursts of hitboxes, or make the pyro have to switch out gas tanks after 50 ammo is consumed. Since pyro finally has adequate range to his attacks either remove afterburn, or nerf it even further. And of course make valve get off their asses to fix that airblast particle glitch. What issues will this fix? Pyro's range, pyro's inability to do consistent DPS, pyro's lack of aim in order to use his primary weapon, afterburn's annoyance and unengaging gameplay of racing to a healthpack, the general annoyance of fighting pyros in closed off spaces which has his blinding flame particles make him hard to hit depending on angle of approach. Moreover unlike the hitscan suggestion this makes sure Pyro does not intrude on anyone's turf or steps on anyone's toes. Pyro will not intrude into demo man's roles since his role is that of area denial via sticky spam, and his grenades on direct hit are still burst damage based. Pyro will not intrude into soldier's turf due to soldier still being projectile burst damage based, as well as having superior mobility options due to stock rocket jumping, the gunboats or airstrike. In general pyro's role will be a new one of soft area denial, that can still be slightly negated by scouts, snipers and heavies. However this time if the pyro is good enough he can punish overly aggressive scouts, and he can at least harass heavies at mid range.
>>109 It's only good for rocket jumping anymore, and frankly it's too bloated to keep it installed solely for that.
>>109 Still play it for the pyro class and use the most obnoxious weapon because the entire community a bunch of whiners that can't just play the goddamed game. How much longer does it have? Depends on virtual item sales.
>>109 <no

thoughts on borderlands series?
5 posts omitted.
>>414 Same here, even solo'd 95% of my time in mmo's. As I recall all B1 story line was all solo-able There may have been a side quest for a raid boss at the end I do remember grouping up for a dlc boss at the end. Also by skipping 'release' and playing the games a year later I generally find you can miss the worst part of pug fags in the beginning. Also I had pirated all games up till last year and we were using a program (Tunggle) for borderlands that allowed internet gameplay for pirated games that had LAN enabled. So it goes without saying it wasn't your typical online console culture. >>368 (20 days old, so may not ever read) I did buy borderlands packages when the were on sale awhile ago OP, (haven't replayed much more than act1 of B1 so far) so if you want to give game a try, Im willing to play a bit.
RNG with guns doesn't work, no matter what. The "humor" is intellectually insulting.
>>368 Meant for normalfag. Normalfags are retarded. >>412 >buying games Look at this normalfag lmao

This thread is dedicated to the Nintendo DS. Say something nice about it.
All members of the nintendo DS family have two 256X192 pixel screens. When considering both screens together, the total pixel count is 256x384. This corresponds to a 2:3 aspect ratio. NINTENDO DS: (OG DS): Reflective TN screens, frontlit NINTENDO DS LITE: Transmissive TN screen, backlit NINTENDO DSI: Transmissive TN screen, improved time constant, backlit NINTENDO DSI XL: VA/IPS type screen, good response time, backlit now you know

>say something nice about it -flash carts are cheap and generally available -tons of games released, with basically the entire system library is freely available for download. -file sizes are generally manageable (most games 16-64 MiB, some games up to 512 MiB) -good amount of RPGs, tactics, and puzzle games -a handful of full 3d action games, including Super Mario 64 and Tony Hawk Proving Ground and finally: The OG DS uses a reflective screen, so it is easily viewable in direct sunlight. As far as I know, the OG DS is the most recent gaming device that is fully playable in direct sunlight. The only other things that come close are Panasonic toughbooks and hacked e-ink e-readers. The DS is very comfy for a nice little morning sunbeam warmup session.
3DS is easy to homebrew and get free games. Although the only actually good ones are New Leaf and Smash and those are both dead. DSi - The rich kid's DS it has a camera DS Light- It can play GBA games. DS - It exists.
