How possible do you think it would be to assemble a group of wizards together to play an mmo or similar co-op type of game? I tried years ago and many years before than and I never managed to get more than 3 or 4 people to play at one time. Do you think this is an impossible goal? I sit at my pc basically all day long, I don’t see why there aren’t any other wizards in just the same situation who could have fun playing some casual game together. Of course the games would have to be playable without voice chat but there is plenty of those I think.

What to consider when choosing a gaming laptop? I've looked around some guides and have a vague idea, but I'd like to get some thoughts from experienced gamers. There's so much to choose from. I've been wageslaving for two years to save up for this and I really don't want to mess up. My budget is about 1500 usd, maybe a little more.

I'm looking for the best price-to-performance ratio. I don't want to pay for frills, I just want my games to run. I also don't play FPS, mostly strategy games, if that matters. I also don't stream or anything like that. Portability doesn't matter.

Is there a big difference between laptop and desktop? Does a laptop cost much more than a desktop of similar performance? I can't buy desktop because I have nowhere to put it.

Very thankful for any advice.

how is it classic if there are four teams? what the hell is that thing at 2:56? and 2fort will forever be unsalvageable, and so is ctf in TF2


TFC went from "we want tf2 before the mannconomy update" to "fuck tf2 we'll make our own with blackjack and hookers". So they added a ton of modded weapons, 4 team modes, etc.


>what the hell is that thing at 2:56
its the VIP

So I've been on the fence about playing this little gem (persona 1).
Did some reading around and it is hated by some and loved by others. (guess that's always the case eh)

Anyway, I'm a 36yrs old fag and tired of life, I am planning on playing this on the psvita. Seen as I am always tired as fuck after a long day of wageslaving and playing family guy I will probably be playing for an hour or 1.5 to 2 every other night.

So without spoiling, I hope you guys can give me some pros and cons about this game.

Should I invest in it ? Or steer clear ?

Many thanks for the feedback.


I thought the game was pretty good, it's easy and short (for a JRPG, which is still like 30 hours), if that's an issue for you. It also mostly stays away from the waifufaggotry that permeates the series in the 3 most recent games. Probably the only persona in which the plot has some thought into it, it takes influence from Jungian psychology (he basically came up with the concept of the "persona").
I think it's definitely worth a playthrough, stay the hell away from the original PSX localization, it has some awful changes.

Which Pokemon game is superior and why, Yellow or Crystal?
23 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


i only played blue, i have no idea there is a yellow. later i played sapphire. all the pokemon in between blue and sapphire seem weird to me. apparently yellow is like blue so of course i will say yellow is best


Crystal, gen 2 is the best gen.
Yellow is red/blue with some changes to make it similar to the anime, like forcing you to start with pikachu and not being to release it/evolve it, changes to gym leaders' teams so it matches those of the show, changing cops and nurses to Joys and Jennies and so on. I personally prefer the vanilla versions, Pikachu fucking sucks and I think they were more balanced


Being able to get all three starters form red/blue was pretty tight.


Try Ash Red. PC game where you literally play the entire anime.


I've played Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow for the first generation and Gold, Silver, and Crystal for the second generation. I've come back to the second generation more because I like the aesthetics. I think I may have actually beaten Crystal, but not Yellow. I can't remember. I just remember beating Red after playing it in 2015. I can't remember much of each game though. I will tell you that my favorite romhack is called Crystal Clear. You can get every single Pokemon in the game including the starters in the wild. That game's dope.

Dead Rising 2 introduces this medicine called Zombrex. Dead Rising loves conspiracy theories in general. This relationship with the Zombrex is very important. Chuck Greene' daughter is bitten by her mother and needs a dosage of Zombrex every 8 hours to prevent her from being a zombie. Already we know zombies are metaphors for capitalism or metaphors for superstition;they are a primal fear of our realization that we live in a predator vs prey based world and our social relations are built entirely off these fundamentals. When the "infection" spreads to a point of mass zombie outbreak, it really is a meta commentary on humanity's perpetual downfall. Nietzche preaches an idea of nihilism that his view in the world is the view of subsequent generations. You see a true "monster" or icon of fear is both a realized state of predator/prey. This further extends into memetics and conceptual "willpower" what boils down to is that a trauma induced by a predator forces a prey into a emotional unstable state where unless they get constant medication (bandaid fixes) they can't resume a comfortable life. This drives our thinking into a fear/reward system where every reward is rejected simply on the basis that it perpetuates a cycle you want to escape, that's why T.K. after receiving the first dose freaks out. The cyclical nature is even reflected on the political scale, where protestors protest against cruelty of zombies, where that the government is providing the bandaid under the corpses of thousands of dead zombies. We can essentially flip this conversation into saying, we have cultivated a society that has underwent so much genetic trauma that we are living in a zombie epidemic filled with psychopaths. These psychopaths are not to assimilar to MkUltra victims. MkUltra was actually a entire success, brainwashing is viewable and when the scientists managed to reduce patients to a child like state of gurgling, what they didn't know was that they were simply mimicking their archon elders. While this may have seen like a completely off the wall tangent notice how it's applied in other media this looping of conspiracies, teletubbies instills the archons with the establishment of the fifth teletubby and the Sun God Noonoo(a child) which is the idealized mental state of a God. When Chuck Greene comments that T.K. is weaker than Katey after the injection this was a multi faceted comment because both T.K. and Katey were essentially subjugated into willingly following hypnosisPost too long.

I never played vanilla DR2 but I played the shit out of Off The Record, the expansion where Chuck is replaced with Frank. It frees you from being a cuck looking for zombrex for your child succubus. Great game, lots of fun. DR3 had none of the charm of the previous games.

Any of the Donkey Kong games worth playing? I always heard the SNES and newer games are really good, but DK64 is quite polarizing.

DKC was a solid platformer, but had issues which I attribute to going from 3d animation to 2d loops. Not unlike Mortal Kombat, it felt clunky at times like you're waiting for a loop to complete before doing the next thing. It had one of the better SNES soundtracks and did a good job setting the mood for the game. It's definitely worth one play through. I was probably playing Tekken and Ridge Racer when DKC 2 hit.

it's the red glocks i mean red sox though



Replayed DKC1 on a more modern television. You still can't see to the right of you. I managed to beat the game in about three hours though. Not bad.


I just got the DKC tropical freeze so I'll probably one day see what you're talking about. I hope it's not too disappointing like you say it is.


Are the Donkey Kong Land games on gameboy any good or fun?

Played all three of them as a kid, here are my personal opinions:

1 is the one I played the least, mainly because of how different it felt to the snes counterpart which I didn't expect & like back then. Also since it's the first time they tried porting DKC to GB it often seemed borderline-broken to me. Wouldn't recommend.

2 was a much better port and I played the shit out of it, mainly because dkc2 on snes is still one of my favorite games to this day. Still does a few things different than the snes version but works much better all-around.

3 is another good port/spin-off, but also repeats many things that made dkc3 inferior to dkc2, so I'd recommend it depending on if you liked/disliked that, too.

I also just recently watched a youtube video by some guy reviewing all 3 parts of it and agreed with a lot of what was said, so check it out if you are interested in another opinion:

Has anyone heard about these? What do you think about them? Personally I don't really get it. It has something to do with blockchain but I don't understand where the money is coming from in the first place or why they would let you earn it by playing video games but apparently it's a thing that exists. Maybe it's just people are all putting money into the game from various things and then it becomes like an actual in-game economy with "real" "currency" and you only get paid if you are any good. Could be an interesting way for wizzies to get money since we can dedicate more time to grinding and getting gud.

Pic related is from https://www.illuvium.io/

Looks like some sort of pokemon clone but the pokemons are all NFTs and you can earn ethereum or something.


> I don't understand where the money is coming from in the first place
GPU and CPU power s used to generate the hashes which construct these altcoins. Modern games are given full reign over either so they can mine while you play, at the expense of performance and hardware longevity.

Some games, software, and viruses do this without even telling the user, it's just that these guys are marketing it and have implemented the currency as a gameplay mechanic.


nft, crypto, blockchain… all of this is giving me a headache. As if the trading and casino-tier shit wasn't cancerous enough.


it's probably like 1 cent an hour for you and way more for developers, another pyramid scheme like those "watch ads on your phone for money"


not worth it at all, with games like runescape or world of warcraft you can make way more money farming gold


im fine with play to earn games. hint: most games can be play to earn, the developers just ban everyone for doing it. but still people have been earning a living playing runescape or wow or guild wars and farming gold… for a long ass time. the only difference now is that they spin up a new cryptocoin (GameCoin) or an nft (CharacterToken)… and to play the game you need to buy a CharacterToken… and the GameCoins you earn are garbage that everyone dumps onto the market until it becomes worthless and you cant even recoup the initial costs of your CharacterToken because the whole thing is literally just speculation and schemes shilled by shady people on twitter, not a real videogame

last time i checked only the first generation units, and not all of them at that were hackable, which is why many used to recommend to buy a used one


OLED is a gimmick unless you're playing in sunlight. If you're playing on a TV especially there's no point. Like anonabove said only the first generation, and the first few hundred thousand serials, have a direct hardware root to the read-only boot manager which guarantees eternal CFW support with zero-detection if you still want to play online (with purchased games). They can be found used for the same price as a new OLED model.


I can't wait for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Splatoon 3. Probably the only games I'm looking forward to this year. XC2 and Splatoon 2 were games I could just play to chill out and get comfy so I hope it's the same here. Something about the aesthetic just really did it for me.


I'm honestly kind of worried Splatoon 3 won't have enough new stuff…


So excited 1 and 2 were amazing.. the ost and story I can’t wait
