I have been playing Nethack and stuff for quite some time now and I love it. Let's have a thread for it.
What's your favourite Rogue-like?
What role do you like the most?
All things Rogue
Sort of like a priest + warrior class combination.
Played western roguelikes + some first babby's japanese in, like, 20 years or so but now only playing Japanese shit. Shame on me.
ADoM was very good though.
One of the strongest charas for me was Mindcrafter.
Such as? I'm kind of curious, I've never played any Japanese roguelikes. What are some good ones?
Did anyone here ever try to make one?
I've made one before, but I won't post it because frankly, it sucked. The cool feature was that there was a sort of half-assed functional engine implemented, so you could do things like take a sword and enchant it so that when you did a thing with it (equip, unequip, swing, hit, miss, etc) a thing would happen to something (you, the monster you were fighting, the world, etc). So, at a basic level, you could enchant your sword to deal fire damage to the target when you connected, but at a higher level there was a proof-of-concept enchantment such that when it hit the monster, it turned whatever they were wearing on their feet into rubber boots and gave the ground the WATERY attribute. That was going to be what was fun about the game: all the effects would be strange, and you'd have to figure out whether "Sword of temporarily summoning eels except on odd numbered levels, when they'd be scorpions" was better than "Lance of possibly restoring your hit points but also possibly turning the ground around you into walls. Also makes opponent switch handedness whenever it hits".
I eventually wanted to bind Guile to it, so at high levels you would primarily interact with the game through writing your own functions as spells from within the game, then casting them, but I couldn't think of a way to do it such that the difficulty would scale nicely. Sure, it would be nice to have a spell that rescinded one of a monster's invulnerabilities, but if you're already fucking around with its internals, why don't you just set the health to -1 and be done with it? Likewise, if you got the ability to rewrite bits of the map, why would you bother setting elaborate flame traps or purifying swamps when you could just make downstairs everywhere?
I wanted to try to graft level generation code from a roguelike into an orthogonal FPS engine (the old ROTT's code was what I thought about using) to make a first person Diablo sort of thing. But I never got much farther than trying to read and annotate the ROTT source.
I'm very fond of POWDER, even though it's just NetHack Lite: Portable Edition.
The only game I've played to any extent is plain old Rogue. It has only one class (Fighter). I really love its simplicity, whereas other roguelikes I tried had complicated options and mechanics. Anyway, I still haven't beat Rogue yet. Found the amulet once but didn't make it back to the exit...
No more heroes
I like how its a satire on "EPIC" plots in general not just games.
But I still consider Killer7 as a better game despite the change from its original script . Cant wait for
Flower, Sun and Rain in October so I can get some sort of understanding of his Kill the Past series.
HAY GUISE I FINISHED PROGRESS QUEST AFTER ONLY 6 YEARS, WHAT DO I WIN?
I just finished playing Minesweeper! not Minecraft though.
Haven't finished playing fallout 3, yep fallout 3 guys, and it's already 2011.
Finished Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas. It was fun, but had numerous faults. I played the PC version, which is, from what I heard, the worst port.
Finished Silent Hill:Shattered Memories on PSP. Good Game, I will rate 8/10. It has some nifty mechanics, like characters and locations change appearance according to how you play.
BB-Cafe is a bulletin board system where users from different countries can freely and anonymously exchange opinions and hold constructive discussion without regard to the language barrier.
Finished F.E.A.R 3 in like 6-12 hours it was awesome and it has grate replay value,still going through it a sedcond time,i reccomend that everone play's this game :D ,though the multiplayer was a let down i could neaver find a match and the one time i found one he disconnected in like 10 mins D: rate 9/10
Beat El Shaddai in 2 sittings, 5 hours of play then a 4 hour nap then 5 more hours to finish it out. I didn't want to sleep but I didn't really have a choice.
I cannot describe this game. The only thing I can say is that I really enjoyed it and there will never be another game like this again. Easily goes in my list of top games I enjoyed this console gen with Uncharted 2 and No More Heroes.
There was a thread like this in /anime/ and, although it seems to have died from lack of interest, I liked it. Let's try it here.
For instance, assuming >>0's favorite is THE GAME: What fun is a game that can't be won? Also, you just lost it.
My favorite: Metal Gear Solid 3
No protracted arguments in this thread please, just keep it going.
Imbalanced classes out the ass.
Card Fighters Clash
nobody ever heard of that shit
Strategy games are for uncool nerds
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
Obnoxious love interests.
Chakan: The Forever Man
Here producers can talk about various things about the game or repost AA.
Never heard of or played this game before, but the video popped up on my YouTube recommendations for some reason. I guess Google got something right this time because I'm kind of interested in tracking down a copy now.
Do you dare to enter?
Please make to sudden attack account instead of me.
>That was the one made in the build engine, right?
So do those of you who've played both think that the first one or the second one was better?
Did anyone else feel that the spears that instantly rip your heart out, while frustrating at first, eventually came to have a certain sadomasochistic charm to them?
i'm from /v/, this plice is shet, m8.
shut it down
Sorry we can't service your golfish-level attention span, friend.
You are not sufficiently melanin-endowed to post in this thread.
Other than a lot of 404 pages, what am I looking at here?
Bishi Bashi was an excelent game for the psone, consisting in a lot of mini-games, with an excellent and bizarre sense of humor. I have it :3 Now, is there some similar game for ps2?
I can't think of anything similar on the PS2, but on the PS1 there's also the Japan-only Bishi Bashi Special 3 (assuming you got the European game, which is a compilation of 1 and 2) and Salaryman Champ. The last Bishi Bashi game released in arcades was Bishi Bashi Online, and that never got a console port, but I suspect Konami might resurrect the series for the DS or Wii in future.
A bishi bashi on Wii, that sounds really interesting. Let's hope konami give us something like that in the near future.
is there any bishi bashi games for nintendo ds lite?
Incredible Crisis for the PS one, Great Fucking Game! (ps2= none that i know:()
There's a great bishi bashi iOS app available for free on the jp AppStore. It's F2P, but still pretty fun.
