Do you watch any? Post what you like.

2 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-13 10:00 ID:+xnC4ZFo

in the 2000s my internet was too slow for youtube videos to buffer in realtime so I missed the let's play / reviewer boom. I don't really watch any youtubers and it just seems like a thing that people do to waste time mostly.

however, I enjoy watching speedrun streams so I can see why it's fun. i just somehow avoided the fad myself. perhaps it's time 2GET acquainted with the medium

3 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-13 10:31 ID:Heaven

I try to avoid watching speedruns before watching letsplays or playing the game, they sometimes skip 70% of what makes the game good. You lose the wow factor as well, it's less impressive and surprising when somebody makes a shortcut through 30 minutes of playtime. But depends on a speedrun.

I don't know what kind of streams you watched, but letsplays are less of a waste of time compared to that. Good letsplayers edit out the boring parts, streamers never do.

I was talking about stuff like GDQ or the occasional SM64 speedrunning event. I'm only really interested in games I'm already familiar with because yes, speedruns are a terrible way to experience a game firsthand. I would argue that let's plays are probably also similar in that regard. I like the interactivity of streams but can see how the boring parts would be annoying.

Reminds me of polls like this which makes me wonder how many apparent "fans" of media actually consume them first-hand. Like, sure, people don't have time to play every game ever, but I don't think watching somebody else play it is what the developer intended the experience to be. idk where I was going with this just some food for thought

do you have any letsplays you would particularly recommend?

A Super Mario Thing, or ASMT for short.
by: raocow

This is a Super Mario World hack, made specifically for raocow by his fans. Probably his best series ever. Full of inside jokes and ancient memes.

https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm6837901
VIPマリオ3 letsplay. In japanese, but somewhat entertaining nonetheless. Also a mario hack. It's a very challenging hack, at times sadistic even. But not impossible. Kinda. Maybe. See it for yourself.

Pretty sure raocow watched either this series, or something like this, because he bragged about "introducing VIP to the west" once, because he made a video saying that playing VIP blind(without prior knowledge of the game, and/or translation) is a bad idea, and just his editing style is similar.

Notche's Weird New Game (3)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-07 12:30 ID:aA4Jc4AQ

Notch has been up to some weird shit recently. He posted 6 random videos around 2019 to his yt channel. Most of them showing a strange dark landscape with a couple colored light sources scattered around the map. Many assumed he was finally going back to making games. But as of 2021 no new video or anything about the project has been posted. But hes still barely active on his yt channel. Did he just loose interest on his project?

Windows 9x Games (22)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-11-28 22:40 ID:O/FmKQDE

What are some essential games for Windows 9x? I'm thinking about building a vintage gaming pc specifically for these mostly forgotten games that rarely work on modern PCs.

13 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-28 21:51 ID:sVIw32YB

I mostly hate DOSBox. Why is the cycle detection so shit? Development is stagnant too but we have dosbox-staging, fortunately.

14 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-28 23:28 ID:9OO/spWs

>>13
Define cycle detection being shit. Are you referring to the results of leaving it at "auto" (which I'll admit is shit and you shouldn't use the auto setting unless you're really unsure what to set it at), or are you referring to other weird speed issues that might crop up with particular games?

DOSBox is a bit irrelevant when it comes to Windows 9x games though. Yeah, there are instructions where you can jump through a bunch of hoops to run Windows 95 in DOSBox but it's janky and unstable. The unfortunate truth is that if you want to run 9x stuff that's not compatible with XP or beyond, your best bet is still to get an actual Windows 9x era PC. Understandably this is kind of a barrier to entry if space/cost is a problem, especially if you want to play stuff that calls for a Voodoo card and shit.

15 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-10-29 04:24 ID:sVIw32YB

>>14
I'm referring to both problems. It gets to the point where I'm playing Wing Commander and I never know if the game is running at the speed it's supposed to.

16 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-11-06 19:23 ID:Heaven

>>15
"auto" cycles only swaps between "max" and a single fixed value, and doesn't even do that reliably in all cases, which is why I recommend not to use it if you can help it. The default value of 3000 when it doesn't auto-swap to max is approximately a 286... maybe. From what I gather there's no reliable 1:1 conversion of cycles value to CPU speed, which sucks.

The general good procedure for speed-sensitive games is to determine what type of CPU (and, if need be, accessory hardware) the game was ideally run on and making a config that sets cycles, and perhaps some other settings (e.g. core, cputype, possibly graphics and sound card settings) accordingly. Outside of very finicky games you should be able to get away with making a few configs that represent different emulated computers rather than having to make a unique config for every game (though that can have its advantages like a specific startup .BAT script) Useful reading:
https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Configuration:CPU

DOSBox-staging is supposed to have steadier/more accurate cycles but I haven't yet experimented with it enough to vouch for that. I'm pretty wary of forked builds in general since in my experience they've tended to be no better/actually worse, but I'm basing that opinion primarily on Daum and X.

Pcem can emulate a voodoo1,2,3. for early XP era games you could probably get it to work on a modern PC with some patches/workarounds.

18 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-12-12 22:45 ID:9OO/spWs

>>17
PCem is a royal pain in the ass to set up (finding and setting up system ROMs, HD images which are a lot less convenient than mounting directories in DOSBox) and in my experience far too slow to be any good for 9x stuff, though I suppose your mileage may vary if you have a beefier computer. It's not worth the hassle for me but if it works for you, more power to you I guess.

19 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-12-17 11:23 ID:Ky3IEbiV

>>18
In my opinion it should definitely be considered before buying a whole new computer.
All ROMs can be found in one easily extracted file as the first search result of "PCem ROMS" (except for the newest update which i hope will be added soon). For HD images you simply have to specify the volume size in MB. I agree with you in terms of performance, although it's heavily dependent on what you're doing on the emulated system. Currently nothing can 100% emulate an k6-II+ 550mhz or Pentium II at 450mhz being stress tested. Seeing that different processors can be swapped out in the same socket however, it's easy to find something optimal for your host.
By far the most difficult part of the emulator is actually installing software on your system. Which you need all the CDs or ISO images for. You'd need to find hardware drivers, software installers, and system tools just like you'd need to on a real system. Alternatively you could inject the files into the Image file using a tool like WinImage.
I find both PCem's focus on accuracy just as much as DOSBox's focus on convenience.

If you're running some later form of Windows (from XP up), DXWnd is worth taking a look at. It comes with a bunch of premade configurations that've proven useful for running the ornery 9x games I've thrown at it so far.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/

No idea if it's any help for running things through WINE though. Probably not.

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.

Duke Nukem 2. Beat it for the first time after only having ever played the shareware episode and a little bit of episode 2. Played on easy mode this time though as the item and enemy placement tends to be more than a little trollish.

I'm still inclined to say the original Duke "Nukum" was more fun despite the sequel's added glitz and gimmicks.

304 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-02-07 20:58 ID:wItEFFBZ

Just finished Pikmin 1 on the GameCube. Really great game, loved micromanaging all the Pikmin to do different tasks at the same time. Loved planning routes and figuring everything out. Though the game itself was a little on the short side. I'm looking forward to trying Pikmin 2 next once I get some free time.

305 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-02-15 13:59 ID:BrdEyL47

Beat Black Mesa. Although it looks just slightly too modern for the engine (it's not quite "HL1 with HL2 graphics" but rather "HL1 with modern graphics), and it diverges from the original in some parts, it's still a very high-quality reinterpretation of the original game.

I quite liked BMS but nu-Xen dragged on for way too long. Doesn't really feel as creepy as the original either.

308 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-04-06 02:16 ID:1Nb7DeFd

I beat Marathon 1 and 2! The recent updates to Aleph One allow you to play them at 60 FPS. I'm playing Infinity right now and it's really interesting but the level design took a nosedive.

I should really play those some time. I've heard people who hate the engine but apparently Damage Incorporated was built on that engine too and it seemed okay to me (at least the Windows version did). Probably bitchy nitpickers who hate everything that isn't Doom, just like with BUILD games.

Team Fortress 2 (31)

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. ;___;

Think I prefer Team Fortress Classic. I have been playing some Due Process lately which I hope picks up in popularity (but probably appeals more to the R6/CoD crowd than TF2)

The game is out and I finally understand why they didn't show much of the game's new artistic direction before shipping the game.

In my opinion some of the new redesigns are straight up embarrassing e.g Fat Officials.

Water Warfare was the first WiiWare game I ever got and I fukkin loved it. This was at an age where my parents still weren't comfortable letting me play the "big boy" shooters like COD or Battlefield, so for that kid who really loved FPS gameplay it was great. Maybe I'll emulate it again someday. What are digital-only games that you played and loved, but you don't hear spoken about very often?

Pokemon: in defense of nostalgiafags (4)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2021-03-09 18:34 ID:spCb2t1f

just face it gamefreak, the newer generations will never have the same experience that millennials had with your franchise. The novelty of trading pokemon is gone, and its place in the wider ecosystem of trading cards and collectibles is now decontextualized since nobody fucking collects and trades cards anymore. The primary audience of Pokemon will always be children of the 90s. There hasn't been a good pokemon game since diamond and pearl, just give it the fuck up already. You can't keep re-releasing the same game over and over. You're eventually gonna have to remake the remakes. I don't know man. I don't really have a point, I just don't like pokemon. Thank you for reading my blog.

Yeah, literally millions of people young and old(I remember seeing 9-year-olds ecstatic to see cards unboxed when I was old enough to look down upon them in any capacity) watch these streamers and every now and again throw some shekels to see them bend mind-bogglingly valuable cards.
