>Discuss games here that don't deserve their own thread.
I'm changing the scope of the board's general slightly this time. Let's discuss anything related to video games that don't deserve their own threads.

Any wiz here ever made something with RPG Maker? I'm seriously considering taking a plunge for the next year and make a serious attempt at making one RPG Maker game. The thing that is stopping me is thinking about better gaming engines like Unity and how far would I get in those if I spend a year messing with them instead.

There's some really good tips, some I had no idea of. Thanks wiz!


ffxiv is great. I've been playing it a lot lately.


Me too. What datacenter are you wizzies playing on ?


Remember when that Holo VR game was shown on steam? It went on sale, but I never got it. Now, I found a video about it.

Trigger warning.

He uses the sad frog guy and is generally just really cringy. It was worth it to see what the game is like. Mute and use the speed button to 2 to save time. His input actually doesn't matter much.

In summary, it's not a worthwhile investment right now. Animations are basic as well as interactions. I'm pretty sure I've seen the entire thing with this video.


The launch of Google's Stadia is a trash fire, unsurprisingly to anyone that was paying attention.

The humor is pretty juvenile, but I liked Conker's Bad Fur Day.


Portal 2 is fantastic.
The comedic writing is solid and the game-play is great. Highly recommend it.

Everyone knows this movie is real, but not everyone has taken the time to truly appreciate the veracity of its concepts and how it REALLY works, in a bit greater detail, particularly what the Matrix programs deprive us of.
I think most of /dep/ is too controlled for this information, so I'll post it here on /wiz/, but even here I don't expect a very good reception due to the amount of self-reflection needed to truly appreciate this sort of information.

It's easy to become attached to the pointer concepts and move to one illusion to another without seeing Truth.


Which is why you never treat ANY piece of text or teachings as the sole truth, also because language is imperfect and what the author said vs what the author meant can have different meanings. But some texts are much more promising than others and adhere to the truth very closely. I firmly believe what I read on that site is very close to truth and so far I haven't seen it buckle under pressure.


at the first glance it's all "preaching to the choir" but the text itself is deeper than that


>very few types of meatless meals (which are aligned with Laws of love).
You are not evolved to consume plants only and there no such thing as "laws of love", new age faggot.


>Scientists claim that meatless food is unhealthy
And it is, look at your typical vegan

Am I the only one who can't find the willpower to improve?

I've been browsing some depression forums and there even people who sound heavily depressed have tried almost everything to deal with their depression: they tried like all available meds, experimental stuff, drugs, supplements, special diets, meditation, yoga, regular exercise, cbt, all kinds of different methods from self help books…

Meanwhile I tried only 2 different meds so far because I'm too scared of the side effects, have no drive to cook and almost only eat premade food, only managed to keep up any routine for 2 weeks at most and can't get myself to read a 200+ page book.

It's just that putting in any effort feels so painful to me so I default to whatever is the most comfortable in any situtation even if it leads me to a life that gets progressively less comfortable each day. I don't know how to improve since any kind of improvement requires effort.

I can't think of a time when making any amount of effort at something caused me improve at it, let alone an overall improvement in my life.
When everything you have ever done has been an unfortunate failure I don't see why you would think you could still get better at anything. At some point it just seems like wishful/delusional thinking.

>Healthier food? Great you get to live slightly long in your shitty life.
It's about feeling good while you're alive, and only secondarily about living longer.

>Read a book? For what, what do you hope to gain or learn from that book?

Books have lots of small things that can genuinely change your outlook on life. It's not that you'll find a golden page, but there are golden sentences or golden stories that may resonate with you and change you as a result.

>Taking a pill won't solve your problems either

Big truth.

The best advice I can give is for you to embrace suffering. Understand that anything that's going to bring you happiness is going to cost comfort in return. Understand that suffering is happiness, or at least the feeling you get after you've suffered. The biggest misconception of our times is that we need to live life always feeling bubbly and comfortable and happy, and that couldn't be further from the truth. succubi can afford to be comfortable all the time, but if we, men, are comfortable all the time, we will inhevitably fall into depression. It's a matter of recognising that the circle of stagnation -> depression starts at stagnation and not at depression.


It all comes down to make a choice if either you want to keep living or if you want to end it. Only if you really accept the fact that you want to keep going then your advice to embrace suffering comes into play. However I feel betrayed with this solution. The demiurge always wins no matter what we do.

I have vowed myself to improve my current situation, but as a result of my crippling habit of overthinking and lack of self-confidence, I never really do.
I do know, however, that there always is a tomorrow and that if I manage to stop thinking of what could have been if I started earlier and not think about how my current capabilities aren't optimal, even I can do something with that which I have.


Can't speak for others, but for me my hand was forced. Family basically gave me a choice: doctor or the streets. Luckily I live in a country with access to free treatment. Can confirm there are many humilating sessions of spilling everything to multiple strangers. Sometimes I wonder if i made the right choice.

Bracelets and anklets.
She wants jewelry dude.

>lol what the fuck does this even mean

In this case it is a measurement used for fitted clothing because the ho wants cloths.


She just wants her orbiters to buy her stuff. God I hate those fucking idiots.


>Bracelets and anklets.
ah i forgot those are things

i was trying to think what succubi would wear on ankles or wrists and drew a blank. i know guys wear sometimes have watches but those you dont even need to measure. i was thinking socks for the feet but that seems dumb i never heard of ankle circumference being a thing for socks.


succubi probably wouldn't be so bad as they are if thirsty retards didn't enable the very worst behavor of them.

Oh well. The fact is that they are bad and so are the dudes that chase them, so it is best to steer clear of both groups altogether.


I don´t get mad anymore because i know that, they simply have no incentive to not be like that, if i could get away with half of what they do i would not see any reason to change either, i`d wear the free clothes, eat those free meals and ask for dessert .

Imagine if desirable succubi were at your disposal willing to do that for you with minimum effort on your part. Winners on a rigged game usually are not the ones to call it off, their best interest is to make sure the game keeps going.

I didn't notice the last one is on auto-sage.

Finally finished Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Took me a year I think to get to end of it, this isn't the kind of book you can read normally, I had to stop to take breaks, sometimes I put it down for months. It isn't about comprehension, I understood what Nietzsche was saying in most cases. It is the lyrical form that annoyed me, lots of poems and songs in this one.
As for what I read: I agree and disagree. There are things which he hit spot on, like pity being harmful and focusing on this life on Earth instead of nonsensical tales about after lives. But the idea of eternal recurrence is just plain idiotic, I think it stems from Christianity still or other oriental religions, death is the end of it and that's all - no matter how you try to name it: Heaven, reincarnation or eternal recurrence it is just a pathetic hope that death isn't final. Actually, Nietzsche's thought process reminds me of Christianity in many ways, ironically: like praising suffering, not being content with hedonism, the idea that life is eternal, the Overman basically just replacing God etc.etc. Seems like a twisted and "negative form" of Christianity. Well, that is just my own two cents. I'm no expert on philosophy.

He uses a lot of unnecessarily arcane words, so don't beat yourself up about not knowing them. I love the book, but I don't like his sometimes clunky, overwraught writing style. It really got in the way of the excellent content, especially the second and third time I read it.


I think the word you're looking for is archaic.

Finished reading Essays in Idleness and Hojoki.
The book is a combination of 2 works, one by Kamo no Chōmei, a monk who became a hermit and lived in a small hut for the rest of his life, and one by Yoshida Kenkō, also a Buddhist monk but not a recluse.
I went in expecting to relate with Chōmei's Hojoki, but actually found Kenkō's Essays in Idleness much more enjoyable. Covers a wide range of topics like Buddhist teachings, transience, aesthetics, and various anecdotes from history and personal experience. Many echo the style of the anecdotes in the Zhuangzi.

Currently reading this and there are some uncomfortable truths that are making it difficult to read. I. Thought it would be a meme book but it isn't.



i have very bad ocd and depression and have heard smoking pot does wonders for you, like one wiz said he tried it once and all his depression and anxiety went away just then. is it a good idea to go smoke some dope so i can get these intrusive thoughts out of my head?

It is a little early to say it succeeded, as the movie hasn't even come out yet.
At least wait until the opening weeks numbers come back.


I really hate black bars wasting my precious screen space in either width or height. The purists want the creator's original intent and hate cropping, and their complaints get all the press. But for casuals like me, we just want it to look nice on the big screens we paid for


When it is poorly cropped it cuts out content, looks bad, and yeah it disrupts the creator's intent.

Also the fans are the ones that should be listened to because they both spend the most money on the thing and spend most consistently.


I mean for me when I 1st got Netflix, the films were almost unwatchable to me with the black bars. Since it seems like most studios are lazy anyway and just cut out the edges. Simplest thing to satisfy everyone would just be to offer both options. They have unlimited server space anyway.


I actually agree with you that the best solution is to offer both when possible.

You'd typically go on to offer your own definition of a capitalist and so on.


commies want to force others to work, fuck that
im in favour of whoever fucks over the sacrosanct middle class the most, that's what they are for


>im in favour of whoever fucks over the sacrosanct middle class the most


a person who has capital, especially extensive capital, invested in business enterprises.
an advocate of capitalism

But what does capitalism mean?
Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit.
Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system and competitive markets.
In a capitalist market economy, decision-making and investments are determined by every owner of wealth, property or production ability in financial and capital markets, whereas prices and the distribution of goods and services are mainly determined by competition in goods and services markets.


>disagree with your assessment that people who have capital or people who employ others is somehow exploitative to those they employ

not what i said. Even admitted as much as capitalism being the best system. In fact much of what i complained about is caused by wellfare state capitalism and state meddling with the economy

tipical parasite.

>whoever fucks over the sacrosanct middle class the most

Nevermind, even parasites know better than to kill the host they mooch from.

I would try meth. If it were too pleasurable I would just do it once to not get addicted. Besides there's things you can take like memantine that greatly reduce the potential harm from meth even if you do it regularly. It's a simple matter of risk/reward. If your life is shit and you already want to die, you literally have nothing to risk and maybe it could make your existence better. Even if you end up destroying your life further, that can be a good thing when you have been stuck at the ledge of suicide for many years but been unable to take the plunge. Fuck, maybe I wouldn't stop after one go if it were amazing, perhaps becoming a meth addict is what I've really needed to do all along.


it's a social drug, passing the pipe just like you pass a blunt.


Not as low iq as you though


Yeah i've tried a lot drugs but never had any desire for meth

Maybe they hear very different stories about it and have very different expectations


that's neurotoxicity for you
rather go the heroin route than ever try crack or meth



some deef burke wrote on a uni restroom wall "THERE SHOOTING WENSDAY".
the twinkles want the campus closed, all white male students are to be arrested and expelled and the uni should give all of the twinkies their degrees immediately for failure to provide a safe learning enviroment!
i give up.
the stupid is beyond endurance!
given the 'high' standards of the english department it is obvious the the scribbler is an advanced degree or graduate stupident of the highest order!
lets arrest and kill all the evil white honkey mofos who are responsible for the desecration of a shitshack and for
evidencing such highly advanced english skills so as to make the twinkles feel inferior!
kali is doomed, these people "qualified" to attend a university of kalifonicatua!

>why not both?
Because that isn't what the data from the study says. Not that they make it easy to get directly to the study to ignore their shitty reporting.
Video games in the study is not correlated with depression in teens. Social media use is correlated with depression in the study though.


The author gave a nice interview recently.
>Michael Shermer with Christof Koch — Why Consciousness is Widespread but Can’t Be Computed (#84)


Slaughterhouse pigs never had a life to begin with. They were born just to be dead. If I lived as a fat pink hairy pus bucket forced to eat rotten food chained to a fence with my amazing nose pressed against the ass of another me, in a small building full of thousands of mes, forced to breed with a fatter female me, while being too fat to fap and liable to get electroproded if I didn't get fatter by some normalfag so he can pay his iPhone bill, and then they killed me, I would rather keep my soul in hell then let it reintegrate in to my old body.

I wish I had the mental strength and motivation to realize my dreams.


Maybe tomorrow succubi will not exist anymore, then only wizards will remain, as normalfags whose only purpose in this life is to love and live for pussy will start taking their lives one after another due to the disappearance of the object which gave meaning to their concupiscence lives.
With no hint of a sudden return, normalfags and just about every male who isn't a wizard will follow succubi into the nothingness. As a result, wizards will be happy and have to fear no more, for what made the world a scary place will be forever gone. In this period there will be nothing but peace and harmony, those things that were unthinkable for a multitude stained with normalfagcy.


I was lazy and stupid, and packed my washer and dryer to the absolute max with heavy winter sweats and hoodies. And then I left it in the dryer on heavy duty for like 6 hours and it was still wet and cold.

And I started panicking that I had ruined the dryer. And then my brother came down to do the wash right after me. And I was just laying in bed in the dark in deep depression. I guess its a relatively minor thing compared to everything else. But just all the trouble it was going to cause me for being stupid. Reminds me of how I grew up on all these cartoons of fat, stupid, lazy characters doing idiotic things and not having to deal with the consequences. If Homer Simpson does it, its hilarious to see the watersplosion and not the fixing afterwards.

Anyway I've been periodically checking my brothers' wash in the dryer. And it appears to be drying. Although I'll cross my fingers till its done. I feel like everything in my life has to go horribly, so I'll count my blessings if I get away with this.

I'll learn to keep Murphy's Law in mind stronger. I know especially for me, everything that can go wrong, will go wrong horribly. And yet sometimes my laziness can overcome my pessimism. I did briefly think woah, this is the most packed I've ever had it. But then I figured its no worse than when we do bedding.


You know when something shocking happens and you get flashbacks of the sensation some time after? Like a flashback of something painful or tasting something terrible.
I'm getting "flashbacks" of the sensation of strongly hitting mouth and losing many teeth, tasting blood and feeling my empty gums. This hasn't happened though, I just have the sensation as if I had lost my teeth with an impact on something.
My teeth are fine, good thing I don't believe too much in premonition

In primary school I was bullied by 50% of the students in my class.
In middle school I was bullied by 75% students of my class.
In high school it was once again 50% of the class.

By bullying I mean being bullied by one person at least 2 times.

Does it mean that potentially 50% of the people of earth are my enemies?
Its quite logical conclusion.

I strongly disagree with what you said about boundaries. It's just a step from "you just gotta stand up for yourself" bullshit.

Standing up for yourself doesn't matter because ultimately it's just a number's game. You want to stand up to that guy who is hurting you? Next time he will bring friends. You think you're a hardass who can take on five people? No. Being bullied or not is not about being too weak to fight back or not. It's about being chosen by the social group to be the target. There was one hardass like that in my middle school, knew some martial arts, but 5v1 they still got him. Every single time. There was a succubus. You know the type, bright, organized, from a better family than the rest of us. Trying to do the right thing, wanting to help the starving people and generally save teh world. She stood up to the bullies, she got into her head by a hammer. Don't know what happened to her afterwards. Don't care.

Obviously the things I mentioned might seem a bit extreme, but I am from eastern europe. Things are different here. That I understand and just for the record I am not trying to say that people who got bullied in a less physical way didn't really get bullied or anything like that, don't get me wrong.

It just really insults me so, so, SO deeply when people claim bullying is the victim's fault for not fighting back.

I agree with you.
I’m pretty sure anyone’s parents have talked to them about being bullied or anything, not because it didn’t use to exist, but because:
a) They were the bullies themselves
b) They had something that stopped people from messing with them or
c) They fought back, even if they lost
When I was a manlet kid, my mother always told me that if I let the other kids bother me, the would beat the living shit out of me.
Most of the time I didn’t win, but at least that gave me some respect. It’s not the same to be a fag and let people punch you and do anything about it than to be beaten up but at least give some kid a blackeye or something.
From my point of view, bullying is more like a natural selection thing (although we live in an artificial selection environment), but nowadays kids are too pussies for coping with something like that.


>From my point of view, bullying is more like a natural selection thing
I agree with you. And if we were both classmates in the same school, and if I would shoot up that school - you would be the first on the list


>and if I would shoot up that school - you would be the first on the list

most mass shooters were not only not bullied but were themselves the bullies, like the trenchcoat mafia douchebags. "muh victims taking revenge on muh society" its a hollywood myth and i am kinda tired of that old kike stereotype of romanticizing and excusing assholes who do asshole things.

good 3d animation will still be based on a 2d animation and thats fine by me but so much of it is shitty motion capture and thats what really grinds my teeth, just shoot a live action cutscene and don`t bother pretending is animation if its gonna be that basic, you just end up with uncanny valley floaty characters that have these high res 4k textures but still feel like ps2 era garbage.

This might sound silly but really is fun something worth pursuing just for itself? Whenever I am faced with an uncomfortable day I keep thinking back on all the fun I had in the past but what was the point of that when I am faced with the inevitable discomfort? How can I enjoy the fun knowing that eventually I will be uncomfortable again? Having fun is basically like a fast forward to discomfort since the fun times go by so fast. The desire for having fun is innate in me so it feels intuitive to pursue it but I wonder if, especially as I am getting older and my health gets worse, it would make more sense to try to focus on learning how to endure and face discomfort. Is that even something you can learn realistically?

This is basic schopenhauerism. Life is a cycle of will for something and be sad to not have it, strive for it, maybe get it and if you suceed eventually you get bored and soon will be wanting something else. He also states that 'art' (music, for exaple) is just a distraction from this cruel cycle


People who have fun should all be publicly lashed

Lately I've been having fun reading VNs in my twitch account.
Knowing that some people may join in and share a little moment with me, even if they don't say anything makes me feel almost elated, although the opposite is also true, when I have 0 viewers which is practically always I feel dejected, but not enough to give up reading aloud and call it a day.


>This might sound silly but really is fun something worth pursuing just for itself?

I've been saying this for a long time now, 'fun' is a scam. If something is 'fun' without actually being something that'll better you (in whatever way you wish to better yourself, mind you), then that something is just abusing your reward system and making your chemically imbalanced for no long term gain. This is why video games are such a cancerous thing, because they are top notch at pulling this shit off.

Be wary of the 'fun' trap.

I've been thinking about it and I think i figured out why normie advice is so shit (Just be happy, talk more, be youself). Normie advice is always shit because they've never faced a true outcast of society. The two examples I have off the top of my head are social skill forums and 'just be your self'

Most people on social skill forums are simply average people (social skills, looks, everything) with confidence issues or lacking a bit in one skill. They post on the forum melodramatically with stuff like 'I think everyone hates me', 'I'm ugly', 'I can't talk to people', and they come in with their bandwagon anxiety/depression shit. I'm not saying their emotions aren't real, but they're only real in the 'teenager crying over not getting an iphone because they don't know what true pain is' real.
So to fix their problems normies go into social skill forums and come out with 'just be confident and talk more' because thats all they really need. They're just slight odd normies who need a pep talk. The problem is when a true outcast or wizard comes in.

The wizard/outcast complaints of 'everyone hates me', 'I'm ugly' ,'I can't talk to people', and barrage of mental issues gets categorized as another melodramatic normie. Even melodramatic normies try to debate they're not melodramatic normies so the wizard can never explain why normie pep talks don't work on him. To make it even worse you can't debate normie advice without getting a 'oh you're just cynical' because edgy/melodramatic normies have tried to co-op the idea.

'Just be your self' is standard advice given in childrens movies. The advice works if the charatcers self they are hiding is just over something they are to self conscious, in the standard melodramatic normie way, or it's something only literal boomers would hate, people thinking they are weird for liking 'mario'. This is what normies assume someone is like when someone doesn't like themselves, so when an actual outcast comes in it's brushed over as another 'melodramatic normie'. To bring myself as an example I want to change some of my interests (I like obscure stuff in general) so I can have a baseline of communication with normies (watch some MCU ore read up on pop culture). I tried to look for resources on this, but I was booed away with 'just be yourself'. They probably thought I was some 'insecure with liking pokemon' dude, but I was 'all my favirote artist have <1,000 views' type dude.
What do you think wiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Of course, I've known this for years. Same thing with therapists and psychiatrists. They are good for retarted normies who can't consider any perspectives or challenge their own thoughts, behaviors, or rationality and need to pay other normies to do it for them.


That image is so outdated and only someone with serious issues would think that.

Like, the japanese entertainment industry is fucking huge, billions of dollars a year huge and only second to the burguer entertainment monopolies (hollywood, Disney, etc). If japanese media and videogames are too obscure and autistic for you in 2k19 you are the problem, i can only imagine the type, guetto trash that only listens to mumble rap? undeucated latinos that only know reggaeton and Chavo del 8 exist? who the fuck else would fit the archetype?, possibly boomers maybe because even turbonormies from gen X onward already take anime and videogames for granted as mainstream forms of entertainment even when they only casually indulge themselves. Not to mention all turbonormies are simbiotic beings attached to a fucking smartphone screen 24/7 so its not exactly an argument they would make unless they suffer from cognitive dissonance, it may be the case, i´ve seen plenty of millenials who think they are boomers or something.



even though i agree with >>162090 your point is still valid. Normies live in a bubble, and have never faced truly isolated people. Its also not their fault, they are hardwired in a way in which they cant possibly understand you or any wizard. I´d say it´s a combination of stupidity, ignorance and shortsightedness.


>why doesn't piece of conventional advice X apply to highly rare circumstance Y, fuck normos amirite?

Social skills is 99% blending in and doing what is expected. If you are a genuine weirdo, doesn't matter how good your jokes are or how interesting your personality is - you'll be automatically off-putting to most people. Dress like a normo, talk about normo things and react "properly" to things i.e. laugh at people's jokes, pretend you're interested when they bring up something personal and don't engage in debate because 99% of people think it's "rude" (despite being more interesting in my opinion), they prefer when you say "Oh, that's cool", "That's nice", "Haha wow and what happened next?" enthusiastically so they have an excuse to keep yapping about their lives. You can boil down most social gatherings as just a bunch of people pretending to be excited and interested in each other's lives.


>stupidity, ignorance and shortsightedness.

i agree on the ignorance part because of course they are, they have no reason to understand me or other mentally ill rejects, if they are succesful and doing fine sexually and socially it adds nothing of value to their lifes to put themselves on the shoes of people who are not, it can only harm their wellbeing in fact, it pollutes their sanity. At least if we are talking about normies who are well adjusted, productive and generally think positevely of their lifes, of themselves and are optimistic of the outcomes of their actions, i envy them, i don`t consider them stupid or shortsighted at all, they are simply healthier and better adapted to social life as our species is supposed to.

But just as with everything there are shades, there are normgroids who do fall on the lowest common denominator category and get no benefit or added happiness to their lives of complacency and low standards, like slumdwellers and trailer trash and some religious fundamentalist from the boonies, they are just comfortably numb and could probably benefit from more self awareness, theyd just wait in line for some wii u game that puts them into debt instead.
