Gaming Speculation Thread (10)

Since this board is slower than my autistic cousin, I thought we could post our thoughts about upcoming things in gaming and then come back awhile afterwards to reflect on how it actually turned out.

The two biggest things I can think of right now is the ps5 and Xbox series X|S. Will they be shit? Who knows. maybe they will make fun video games again. A new generation means new possibilities right?

2 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-11 21:23 ID:/vXEjNXp

I have pessimistic and optimistic thoughts.

I think that going forward, western game companies will stop focusing on gameplay and start focusing on graphics and story. This will make the stories slightly better, but the gameplay may feel disconnected from the narrative. That's only if they start writing good stories though.

My more optimistic idea is that game companies will realise we want to play games that are actually fun - western AAA game companies will lose market-share to Japanese and Indie games, they'll start trying to copy both... and eventually they'll start making fun games again.

I don't know which one will end up happening, probably a combination of both.
I actually have hope for the Xbox series X, it looks like it might be worth whatever it is.

Expect even less games due to ever rising development costs.
HD graphics development really was the worst thing that happened to the videogame industry.

4 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-12 16:49 ID:QFlp0qYC

VR (in terms of both display and control schemes) is pretty much the only thing that seems exciting in terms of new developments these days. Everything else these days just seems to be made to fuel upgradism and disposability. We had great games years ago and with moddability we can keep expanding them, so why get excited over something that's essentially the same idea just with fancier graphics and less moddability?

I don't think I played a modern video game in years with the sole exception of Doom 2016. Video games as a business fucking suck.

8 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-24 19:04 ID:OIRlYLBo

I invested in a VR-ready PC a couple years ago, but I never actually ended up buying a VR headset. I previously predicted that there would be more good games but I was wrong and I'm glad I held onto my money. From what I understand, there's only a couple of really worthwhile non-coomer games. Those being Boneworks, Half-Life, and that one rhythm game. Not exactly enough to warrant all that equipment and setup.
At least I have my upgraded PC. I haven't had to worry about game requirements for the last 2 years, even if it's only 1080p 60fps.

There is also Superhot VR, which is quite an enjoable game from what i've played, and it makes you feel like you're in that one scene from the Matrix where Neo dodges bullets, but constantly

10 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-26 17:01 ID:qDSZkMJn

Superhots gameplay is pretty nice but its a shame that it feels like 75% of the game is anything but gameplay.

Team Fortress 2 (24)

I get motion sickness probably after 3-4 hours of playing this game.

I really enjoy it - but I can't stand the feeling of my eyes popping out of my skull and my intestines being pulled from my mouth through my esophagus.

It really sucks.

Do I just keep playing TF2 until my body gets used to it? I've read up on the motion sickness thing and it seems to me like 'sea legs' in comparison.

This really fucking sucks. ;___;

15 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2010-11-25 19:52 ID:HE3PQ1A/

I used to get motion sickness from old FPS games in the early 1990s that were not "true" 3D, but rather 2.5D which really messes with your head.

Also damn, nice necro. I've put ~2600 hours into tf2 but lately I only really play on the 4/v/ server when it goes up.

23 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-21 13:20 ID:+agC+ofX

Yeah, 4chan has some very nice tf2 servers, while casual/skial/blackwonder are fine for a few hours but gets boring very quickly. Unfortunately, the fun servers are only open on weekends which blows.

If you're a wargamer, the old Steel Panthers series from SSI was awesome in multiple senses of the word. Imagine the Advanced Squad Leader boardgame from Avalon Hill, but actually playable.

Too bad the AI was retarded.

I think Matrix Games / Shrapnel Games has rewritten some of them and ported them to Windows.

It is genuinely the best game ever made. Its spiritual successor, Terra Nova, is fantastic too.

This is the first time I've heard Terra Nova described as a spiritual successor to System Shock, I thought it was a mech battle game?

50 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-09 23:19 ID:sME2SOLK

It is, but the game itself plays a lot like a faster, action-focused System Shock.

51 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-14 00:28 ID:ZZ9TcPbK

Crystal Caves is apparently getting an update with an added episode. Looks decent.

ITT We Describe Things That Made Us Made In Video Games [Part 1] (7)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-02-27 16:43 ID:0HHUZ8rW

I tried Yazuka 0 Yesterday and it was a very cool game. Unfortunately I found a Mahjong minigame and I hated how I couldn't understand the rules despite it being written out and accessible at any time.

I got frustrated and left. I then found a Shogi minigame and then I got even MORE mad because I could understand the rules but I was STILL getting obliterated by the easiest difficulty.

I'm trying not to let these two things make me never play it again because the main game itself is fun.

I thought this was going to be about how you got rich in the game or something.

The word you're looking for is "mad".

7 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-13 09:29 ID:faauM9/6

the best way to learn mahjong is looking at a list of viable winning hands and picking the first two or three and trying to build towards them, it's also important to keep in mind which one of those can be build openly (by stealing other players tiles) or closed (solely by drawing them yourself). If I remember correctly the two easiest ones are collecting ONLY numbers from 2-8, no winds/dragons etc and simply collecting triples of whatever and a pair of winds or dragons, but you can just look at the rules in game. Once you know how to build towards them without checking the rules every turn you can go through the list and pick some winning hands you think are fun like all dragons or all doubles and include them in your rotation thereby slowly increasing the number of hands you have absolutely memorized. Don't fret if you can only handle a few, those chink fucks autistically categorised every combination into a distinct winning hand but they are mostly good for points only. Winning is easy enough with a few basic hands. Good luck!

Retro Computers General (4)

A general thread for talking about retro computers such as IBM compatibles, the NEC PC-88, the ZX Spectrum, etc.

I feel like I should put something else here, but I can't figure out what.

What ones do anyone here have?
I've got a Commodore VIC-20, and an Atari 600XL (the less-RAM version of the 800XL). Not a lot of games for either, I guess the best game I have on the VIC is Radar Ratrace and on the Atari, Centipede.

I've got a C64C with a SID 6581 in it. Unfortunately, I lost the AC adapter which is trash anyway. I ought to buy some kind of storage solution for it and learn 6502 programming.

4 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-05 17:19 ID:oFwnbrDc

Yeah, the C64 is a titan when it comes to the era of 8-bit microcomputers. I've heard too that the OEM AC adapters suck and can fry your computer when they go bad which may well be what broke mine back in the day.

Just beat Megaman Zero 4. It was fun.

281 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-04-30 16:56 ID:YnvjLiXT

Beat Hexen a little while ago
I thought it was good overall but my opinion of it gets worse as the game goes on, especially once I started Death Kings of the Dark Citadel expansion. Even in the main game, I was hoping for an end by the 3rd hub and it just keeps going, there are some good levels afterwards but the 4 just feels like filler. I beat the main game with the fighter easily enough but made the mistake of trying the expansion with the mage, his ice magic is fucking garbage and it takes a long time until you get his good weapon.
I liked Heretic more at this point. At least you get more than 4 weapons at a time.

282 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-05-16 01:19 ID:og2U0MVb

Finally got around to playing the 2013 Tomb Raider a couple months ago. The hunting mechanic felt tacked on, and the "run from cover to cover while shooting an army of bad guys" sequences were annoying, but overall it was an enjoyable game.

The last six weeks have been all about Monster Hunter: World. Started the DLC Iceborne a few days ago and I feel like the jump from High to Master is way more difficult than the jump from Low to High.

Get close to enemies and chill touch them. Counter-intuitive but it works best that way.
Wand is slow to kill things, but pretty effective in larger areas against groups.

286 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-07-31 22:16 ID:palZUrTB

Addendum, also his Flechettes slay if you know how to use them. Their explosions are shield-piercing (read: hits centaurs and heresiarchs even when they're guarding).

Really a big part of sucking at Hexen or thinking Hexen sucks is down to not using the items or not using them correctly (won't defend some of the more obtuse puzzle designs tho).

287 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-08-05 13:19 ID:jK/aedkP

after a half year pause (initially interrupted by disco elysium) I finished sekiro, i was already pretty far so I only needed to do the divine dragon, demon of hatred and final boss, I am glad i pulled through, I watched a guide video for the last boss but it didn't help me whatsoever so I just made my own "strategy" which was mostly dodge to the right in phase one and then dodge to the left in phase two, phase three was praying that he does the lightning often so I can punish hard
a friend gave me shit for not learning to parry him but i already unlearned most of it due to the passage of time and frankly was never good at it to begin with so I just used whatever approach seemed natural to me, just because it's a sword fight doesn't mean your legs stop working, foot work, left right, POW right in the kisser

Other megaten games and spinoffs allowed too, but mostly Persona. I've been playing a lot of Persona 3 to try and take my mind off the heat wave (I beat 4 back in July), and it's honestly pretty fun. The dungeons (or rather, dungeon) are way better than the ones in 4, and the story's honestly more compelling, but I'd say the QoL improvements in 4 kinda give it the edge, honestly. Haven't played 5 yet and also have only played SMT 1 on the super fami.

I remember I once had a date witha a girl and took her to a semi-dungeon flat to play Kirby´s adventure. In my head, I tought that the fact that you can share food mouth-to-mouth in cooperaitve mode was enticing. It wasn't, the moment the kirbys pased the food, ther was an awkward silence.

She asked to stop dating after that.

So, don't use kirby games.
