What do Wizards think about mini gaming PCs like pic related? I've gotta say I'd pick a shitty PC over a console any day of the week, and this seems like the best of both worlds.

That same company has a mini laptop, two versions of that hand held for windows and I think two versions that are a bit cheaper that run on a android based OS and is basically a emulation machine.

Or you could just get a windows tablet with a keyboard and Bluetooth controller.
Or use a large smartphone with a windows emulation box app if you really want hyper portability and willing to put up with low specs.

The rest of the mini PC I can think of don't have monitors included and the specs are pretty low.

Clam-shell design and size is closer to a 3DS XL.

To OP, you can get something with similar performance for far less with a windows tablet, then get the accessories you want (keyboard, proper mouse for gaming, controller, etc.). GPD stuff is just too overpriced for the performance you get and a tablet is almost as portable with similar power and lower cost.

If you want to emulate get a powerful gaming Android smart phone and you'll be set for a good while, I think things like rpcs3 will be playable on Android within 10 or so years. You'll see people wanting to convert exe to apk files too.

Can we have a thread where we suggest each other comfy games?

I personally consider comfy a game that doesn't require huge amount of exploration and has some sort of routine included. Like a set of locations or characters you'll visit every now and then on a regular basis. Like a Night in the Wood or even Fortune-499.

Reminded me of the Kyle Hyde games on Ds. They are film noir-style point and click games in which you walk around a rundown hotel, speaking to your neightbors and solving misteries. The soundtrack is amazing, graphics are ok for a ds game and the puzzles are generally pretty easy. To me it's as comfy as it gets.

>Moon: Remix RPG Adventure

RPG for PS1 that's Japanese only (last time I checked at least, there might be a translation out now). While an RPG it's basically a deconstruction of the genre and there isn't really any combat, you play as a boy who has to clean up the mess made by the "hero" by resurrecting monsters and fulfilling the wishes of townspeople. Doing this gives you "love" which is EXP and helps you level up.
It's hard to explain because it's a weird game concept but it's good, it has a day/night cycle and all the NPC's have their own schedules and routines.

>Shenmue I and II


Pretty obvious, NPC's all have their own schedules and most of the game is exploring the town and talking to people.

>Chibi Robo


You play as a mini cleaning robot who does chores around the house for a family. But the house is also full of sentient toys who come to life at night/when no one is around. Whole game revolves around helping them out with various things. It's more interesting than it sounds. NPCs all have their own schedules and there's a day/night cycle.

>Azure Dreams


Roguelike with some light townbuilding and dating sim elements. Entire game revolves around going into a tower, ascending as far as possible before dying/teleporting out, and returning back to town where you can build things, buy stuff, or improve relationships with succubi. You get allies by hatching monsters from eggs.

>Harvest Moon series


Self explanatory, all revolve around being a farmer in a small town. Back to Nature is my personal favorite but all of them from PS2/Gamecube era or earlier are good.

I want to feel the comfy vibes of listening to someone morosely narrate over a video game. I'm not looking for channels where the person is aware he has an audience and behaves like it, or someone who makes a profit from it. I'm looking for a guy who's doing it for himself, just quietly playing through the game and occasionally making some comment or just talking about some mundane topic, maybe about his life.

Any runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?

Just curious what others think of the game, or what you're up to. I've been working on an account thats 2.1k total levels now and the game is a lil stale, I've never really dabbled in bossing or pvp and I'm mainly just an afker and skiller. Considering making an ironman or something

For the past few months I have been playing on a private server called vidyascape. I left osrs because I didn't like the direction the game was taking. I feel like the art direction and gameplay is deviating from the original character of the game and detracting from its authenticity with every new update. I don't want act like a shill for the private server here, but I do want to share my discovery because I think it could be appreciated by wizzies who are equally disappointed by the current state of osrs.

Vidyascape is a server created on 4chan's /v/ board in 2014. It offers a 2007 experience, meaning no post-2007 or redditscape content (except for things like ironman accounts and gilded armour). Notable server differences are inf. run energy and double xp (I dont like the latter but oh well). It also has no grand exchange, which is great imho. What it does have is regular updates, many quests (somewhere around 170 qp) and a ~30 active players during peak hours.


What I like about it the most is that the userbase comprises almost entirely of imageboard users and this acts like a natural normalfag deterrent. Sure you might get the obnoxious 4chan type here and there, but most of these guys stick to the osrs generals.

I wish more wizards would play there so I could have some company.

I tried vscape years ago. Aside from the fact that I kind of outgrew the stat grinding (it seemed so boring to me doing it again, idk how I thought it was fun as a kid), it was just so empty. The world felt pretty lifeless to me without the large population legit runescape had/has.

It's that time again.

I'm conflicted on buying another 30 days or not on this game. Every time I do (already it tricked me 2 times) I regret it 5 days later and uninstall it but I the urge of playing it always rise again after some time the subscription is over.

It's starting to feel like a vicious cycle I'll struggle to come out from.

I already tried all kinds of private servers: Vanilla, TBC, WoTLK, Cataclysm, MoP, WoD, Legend but the retail has something that these private servers don't have (besides the obvious: the playerbase).

I even tried some other games: Overwatch, Path of Exile, FFXIV, GW2, TESO, Aion, battle royals and several other shooters but I can't stick around them too much. The only one I managed to was GW2 some years ago and most recently Overwatch but even than I can't stand them more than 2 hours a day.

I feel like I'm going to relapse again and buy another game time just to enjoy it a couple of day and then uninstall the whole thing again with the addition to wasting another 14 bucks.

I'm not broke, I can afford a monthly fee but I feel guilty because I fee like I'm not really exploiting to the fullest that payment I made if I just barely stay on the game a week.

What other thing I can do to avoid temptations?

If you are tanking it is pretty up to you to make sure everyone knows how to play. As as guy who mainly plays dps I tend to just never do anything but dps my heart out because if I cc the tank or someone else will break it. Interrupts are best left to the tank or some other melee dps since they have ones with much shorter cooldowns. Even then you have to have someone as a designated interrupter otherwise more than one person will interrupt at the same time, wasting that cooldown. A healer not doing his job is inexcusable, though. I noticed either I get a great healer or some idiot who does nothing but heals the tank and then blames the entire group for the inevitable wipe.

With that said, in modern WoW you can be braindead and beat every normal dungeon with little difficulty. I also wish completing all three ranks of the proving grounds were a requirement before doing any mythic. I have no idea why blizzard implemented those awesome tutorials and just hid them away at class trainers that no one goes to.

That is the thing, the difficulty is what made the game fun. Like imagine playing basketball but increasing the hoop to ten feet wide and moving it right next to you so you do not have to get up to score.

The entire fun in any games come from the difficulty imposed from pointless rules. Blizzard basically just slowly took out all of the difficulty and just gives you rewards basically as a thank you for playing.

I've been playing bfa while waiting for classic and the state of the game is so sad now. I got a world quest that granted me a ilvl 385+ item for killing some elite boss out there in the world. Cool. Turns out all I had to do was literally click a button, instantly get into a raid, and then the raid zerg rushes the boss to have him killed in two seconds. Then boom, I get my item, guaranteed. It is fucking ridiculous.

Attached video @2min in is exactly what bfa is like. Not even an exaggeration.

I haven't been following news for it but apparently it's coming out as early access in March 2020. Watched a few gameplay videos briefly and it pretty much looks like Warband with better graphics. Also supposedly there will be better mod support.

To be quite honest, you're probably better off just going with two controllers. Do you not have another controller you can use? I would think you'd be better served going with something like a 360 controller for modern PC games, and something like a Saturn controller for retro games.

Finding a controller with a good d-pad for retro games is really hard, finding something with analog sticks is even harder, and finding something with a good d-pad, 6 buttons, and analog sticks is near impossible. An 8bitdo almost fits the bill, but the only ones they have with analog sticks are 4 buttons, and they are notorious for diagonal input problems (you can mostly fix this issue by putting binder reinforcements on the PCB contacts, and I think this issue might be fixed altogether on their newer controllers, but I digress). The only thing I can think of that might serve your needs is the Hori Pad EX Turbo 2, but I don't have any actual experience with that.

DOS2 is a phenomenal game. It tries to play like a tabletop game, more or less. Huge amounts of replay value, lots of flexibility in the combat system, it's a really fun game. I think people generally prefer DOS2 to DOS1, so to >>46614, you should definitely try it out.

This one is from a Sonic game.

There's lots of small, unknown songs in games that have excellent rhythm, harmony, melody, and syncopation that few people know about or appreciate. Which is why I was surprised I never heard that Katamari song, I was sure that I had listened to each song.

This a thread about the D&D games that are going on already between a few wizards.
We spawned out of the previous thread with a lot of time and effort, but we're always ready to accept more players.

They get back to the village, and it is revealed that Tooth, a clear pro-war faction leader is responsible for the attempted assassination. Swift wind is not too vindictive, as he recognises that Tooth was doing what he thought was best. But, Tooth defends his actions with the following reasoning: "The humans will come here, and spill our blood over the forest!"

Wilting flower, another one on the council, responds: "Then are you not the most human, for spilling our blood over the forest?". This retort sends Tooth into silence, and he stops defending his actions. He is seen to be contemplative, but not asking for forgiveness. He seems like he realises that he may not deserve any. Swift wind removes him from the council without objections, and consults Fith and the treent for guidance. The planned punishment is expulsion from the village. And to be shown what it is like outside the dome, so he gets some perspective.

The treant asks to talk to the party in private. As a tree it's easier if people move away from the tree, so that's what happens. He tells the party of a dark circle, a spot of intense evil that's in the forest. He doesn't want to send minotaurs there as he believes they are unable to cope with such ancient evils. He sends the party there instead, as they are apparently disposable. He offers a magical dagger, that has been suck in the treant's side for possibly over a thousand years. Looks nice.

They go to the spot, Fith motivated by cleansing the forest, Saren motivated by the dagger, and Trey just happy to help. A circle of trees, unnaturally ageless, stands in a bare patch of forest. Not entirely bare, it is strewn with charred grass, dead trees, and ash. A point of darkness where no life dares grow. Except the circle of trees, apparently. The party sets up for a fight, and Fith turns into a strong bear. He notices once close that the trees are not natural, they have been constructed out of stone.

There is a skeleton of a lizard, possibly a magus, lying inside. (This guy is the one that made the circle of stone trees, possibly intending it to be some kind of protection). But in the centre, a stone coffin, upright. Large enough to hold 3 men, it is covered in thick iron chains, worn away by rust and something else. Bam. A noise comes from inside, a hit, as if something is trying to get out. It rattles the chains and at the corners there's wear, the iron chains have been worn through, possibly over hunPost too long.

Hi, you're welcome. Thanks for showing interest. We have a number of requirements; mostly logistical:
We play at UTC 11 on sunday at the moment, so you'd need to have some free time here.
you'll also need mumble (free) and a roll20 account (free).
If you can get a microphone and speak through it that'd be ideal. Try and push through the anxiety, since we're wizards who were just as anxious setting this up.

contact wizrobe (@t) cock.li if you're game.

 No.46567

I can't stand playing multiplayer games since the other players tend to be like rubbing against sandpaper, but you get better at them by doing the "training mode" and learning all of the "frame data" so that you know that doing, say, 236 a (down, down forward,forward, horizontal) is less frames than your opponents attack, or that your opponent will do something like parry, so you do a slow break attack.

Played a bunch of Soulcalibur VI this way. Got pretty good but mostly because I don't watch or copy other people but instead make up my own gameplan based on what other people do.

 No.46591

I have never payed much attention to frame data in all honesty.
I do however pay attention to hitboxes and the various states (invulnerability frame, hit stun, etc.).
I rather develop a sense of timing and spacing from playing the game, espcially with well made ai, then doing tech drills in practice mod and counting frame in replays. Maybe with such a mind set I will not be world class competative level, but I have a lot more fun and still am able to do relatively well in casual play.
Besides, the single player of a lot of fighting games now days is actually pretty good. You can have a lot of fun without knowing anyone who also plays, going to tournaments, or having a superb ping in online match ups.
