i'm looking for games that reward me for playing on harder difficulties
i loved the dmc series for this like you get so much out of it
so what games do you recommend me friendos ?

Danmaku reward you with different attacks and a brilliant sense of accomplishment. Some of the most satisfying games I've ever played were these kind of STGs.
They're not hard to find and there's plenty of lists on which are the greatest. I guess I would recommend Mushihimesama for being an accessible entry to the CAVE style of games.

Play against a human at your skill level


bayonetta is pretty cool, it has a better max difficulty setting then the later DMCs (enemies dont have same health as hard but they deal more damage and are more aggressive)


Dragon's Crown


Batman ac

I grew up with games. I think I played at least half of the games which are listed in various Top games of All times lists. I used to be able to immerse myself completely into the games, and play for hours and hours. Even in the last few years, every once in a while I ran into a title that I could really fall into and clock hours playing it - not as much as when I was younger, but still.

Now this hasn't happened in quite a while, with really rare exceptions. I just can't start a new game, I don't have the patience to learn it and explore it, especially if there's a lot of things to take in (skill descriptions, complex game mechanics, long cinematics etc.).

I have a big back log of games on Steam that I purchased and never played, or played for a few minutes and then uninstalled because I just can't be bothered.

It's a shame, and it makes me feel melancholic.

Did anyone else go through with this? Did you find new hobbies? Is this thread even fit for /games/? Discuss, please.

Play games you enjoy. If it's not fun after a hour, move on…


That looks fun. I like the designs too.i


thread is one year old, these "too depressed to play games/don't enjoy them anymore" seem to pop up every now and then and I'm sick of it because you know the op just want to vent, and while there's nothing wrong with that fundamentally (i can relate) it would be better to keep that shit to /dep/ where it belongs please


That's a shame


Try it


Does anybody play Dominions 5? It is the most wizardly game in my opinion.

You play as a God, fighting other gods for domination over the world. Single player is really fun, but multiplayer is amazing. You design your own God. Examples of gods:
>Giant obese bbw mommy
>Multiple different dragons
>Sentient black monolith like 2001:space Odyssey
>Giant carp fish that swallows people whole
>Fallen Jew angels
>Fallen Jew demons
>ArchWizards trying to achieve godhood
>Fountain of blood that demands child sacrifice

There are hundreds of them. There are also thousands of spells:
>Rain of Toads
>Cast entire world into darkness
>Awaken Treelord
>Sacrifice virgins(f) to summon imps that invade enemy province
>Freeze the entire ocean trapping underwater players inside

For me, it's Dominions 3. Anything past that is for zoomers.

5 is better. Nothing from 4 was removed. The big change is that turns during the battles happen simultaneously, which makes the game much better. i've actually never encountered anyone complaining about 4 vs 5 anywhere on the internet.. i would assume that anyone who talks about something like that is trolling

such as:



Bump. Any wizards play this game?

What was your family's first home computer?
Do you still possess any of the hardware or software?
Did you have subscriptions to related magazines?
What were your top fives games and did you ever learn BASIC?


>What was your family's first home computer?
some huge clunker running windows 95, we got an emachines running windows 98 later on though which i used more

>Do you still possess any of the hardware or software?

i've got a bunch of floppies and cds of some old games, and a hard drive from 2000. i had to get a special adapter for the hard drive but there wsn't even anything there aside from some games

>Did you have subscriptions to related magazines?

no, just nintendo power and some general gaming magazines my dad would bring back from work. sometimes he brought back a WIRED magazine that's about it

>What were your top fives games

qbert, chip's challenge, early warcrafts, the windows pinball game, rodent's revenge. we didn't buy games and i didn't understand the internet until i was older, i mostly played games on snes and gameboys but we had some cds dad brought home

>did you ever learn BASIC?



my first computer was a windows 2000 machine, I played dune 2000 and diablo 2 mostly


>What was your family's first home computer?
An AMD k6 computer, with 64MB of RAM and a geforce 2 gpu, about 20 years ago. Had Windows Millenium, what a piece of crap that OS was.
>Do you still possess any of the hardware or software?
I still have the games around somewhere, the tower is in a pile of junk on my backyard, I still use the speakers, mouse and keyboard work but newer computers don't have the adapters.
>Did you have subscriptions to related magazines?
Just videogame magazines, which I mostly couldn't run because the computer was already too old in 2001 or 2002, but I loved them. Back then video game journalists weren't insufferable idiots, or at least I didn't knew if they were.
>What were your top fives games?
AoE 2, Diablo 2, Serious Sam, Metal Gear Solid 1, Red Alert 2, GTA 2.
>did you ever learn BASIC?
No, I learnt some Pascal, though.

I grew up without one but in 2007 my first computer was a windows 98 desktop with crt and such that some librarian gave me for free. I don't have it anymore but I ran various emulators on it and dictionaries (was trying to learn Japanese so I could play Wonderswan games on it) and an AI chatterbox program called billy, if I recall. I also had a space simulator called… I forgot. Nor can I find it with a search query in a small amount of time. You could add the Event Horizon circling around the earth and such, that I recall. There were family computers off and on around me but when there were it was too open for me to concentrate with a bunch of people being behind me. I can't use a computer around other people. I can't concentrate. So I waited until I was an adult to have a computer of my own to use and that was the 07 time period. I brought back software to it using cd-roms and installed a driver or two for it so it could use usb drives then I used a hacked psp, never had a smartphone like kids today, to bring data back and forth on it's memory stick. I also remember installing a directx for emus to work. The hacked phat psp I could save flv files with, used to watch anime and movies on yout*be with it (back then it worked differently), and I'd save things permanently on the win 98 at home. Back then there were lots of free hotpots, but no longer. To clarify, back then psp's didn't use the Internet to watch videos but had the hardware capability. So I used those two things for my first access. I first visited an imageboard site using the psp in fact. Really it wasn't the windows 98 so much as a windows 98 computer PLUS the phat psp I had (of which was technically the second psp I bought because the first I bought was broken and even the win 98 computer at first was broken until the librarian gave me another, but that's neither here nor there and no one cares…). But I was 18 in 2007, and gave away the computer at probably 2010 or maybe 2011 because I had an xp by then and also gave away the psp I was using as a pda and emulator device and all. That xp is long dead too. Now here I am on windows 7 forever because Linux is trash, when not connected to a network, to this day I don't always have access. I'm not learning how to install from tar, fuck the dependencies. I hate you.

I never learned to program, all that meandering aside, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Any games with a diablo 1 aesthetic?


Thanks, if I were to only play one, should I play the first one or the sequel?
Any other game recommendation welcome


If you were to only play one, play the sequel

Maybe it's not quite what you're looking for but Blood Omen always reminded me of Diablo for some reason, even more so than Diablo II.
Have you ever played Phantasy Star on Genesis? It tends to be overlooked because genesis wasn't an RPG console but they great, my favorite is 4, really cool monster design.


cheers im going to download it too, amazingly i had both games in the back of my mind (lufia 2 and phantasy star IV) when asking for games to play.

But seriously it's finally happening :') A new Half-Life game.. I'm not sure how I feel about it being VR only thou- JUST KIDDING IT WILL BE AWESOME!!
14 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


since this is kind of about VR in general now also, i think something related might be interesting to mention. a big problem people have with vr is motion sickness, but in the lab scientists have known that you can put little vibration motors behind the ears and it significantly delays the time until you feel motion sickness. they are tiny and you can barely feel it. i feel like future vr headsets will probably include these vibrators. maybe as a sort of 'rumble' like how videogame controllers do it, but also for people with motion sickness they can just be running nonstop at low speed


Main problem with VR (which I don't see mentioned enough) is that the magic wears off. First time you put it in you don't regret buying it, next 2-3 weeks are magical but then you get used to it and feel more like a ghost, not a person inside. Guess it's side effect of getting vr-legs (when you can use smooth motion without feeling sick), like your mind learns it's some kind of illusion. It's still great experience and in next decade gonna change every kind of entertainment. It's where lies a big money and excuse to push more and more powerfull graphic cards and tech overall on consumer market.

I tried htc vive long ago and I was very disappointed, I bought rift S few months ago and it's what first vr consumer product should be and the only one that should be considered to buy. The tech/price ratio is perfect. There's no best headset as every of them have flaws in different area. Sadly the oculus is the one pushing vr forward, other companies just jump on bandwagon to make some bucks or like valve are realeasing a product and forget it completly. We've just have rift s/index released so I wouldn't expect any big product in next 2-3 years as everyone waiting for feature that would define gen 2.0: foveated rendering. If you can afford rift s and have good computer there's no point in waiting (you can pirate most of the vr games). I don't have a big room and my playspace is around 2x2m but it's enough when you get used to keep your foots to floor at one place.

It's the best when you're taking breaks, rotating between normal games and vr.

The only good thing about WMR was that was cheap, but now when rift s is REALLY cheap for what it offers WMR have really no place.


>WMR have really no place.
I would argue that it is very portable when used with a gaming laptop and easy to set up, but that new rift s takes that from it too.
But still, it is what I have already and I ain't likely to get anything else for another couple of years when I get a full on new rig.


If you want portability you can use wireless quest (which you can also connect to pc for normal pcvr experience). But yes, if you have now any headset there's no point in upgrading for a slightly better experience and it's better to wait on gen2.


Valve shat their pants so hard with this. Far too little, far too late, pushed via meme tech like vr. Most of the original hl1/2 devs are probably long gone at this point so it will not have the same feel.

I'm so sick of rotting away that I've started learning Python. Is there any place with concrete material on how to make a game?

ArcSys Pseudo2D looks great.



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.


Too bad game has almost no single player content


Mocap works really well for certain games, mainly semi-realistic 3d fighters where they only use mocap for animating the skeletal frame.
Virtual fighter and dead or alive are both good examples.
What doesn't work so well is when they try to use mocap as a short cut for unrealistic 2.5D fighting games that really should be animated manually in every frame to have things feel right.

Can we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.

This thread is a simple thread that can be about Bloodborne, Dark Souls I,II or III, or even Dark Souls. It can be about any element, the lore or enemies, or anything. Also, any action RPG game recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Xanthous Jeremiah the Yellow King


Congrats, if you liked 1 don't even bother with 2.


but 2 is kino


I enjoyed DS2, but it's true that it's not as good as the first one, which I haven't finished yet.


I don't know, I didn't hate it but it feels like a step down fron 1 in every aspect.
>boring, linear level design with a lot of dead ends
>graphics were too bright and kinda "bloomy" (if that makes any sense)
>uninspired bosses, a lot of them are just big guys with armor
>designers went out of their way to make the game more difficult
>unnesessary new stats

Should I buy one of these? there are even games worth playing besides zelda?
68 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Skip Odyssey and Smash. Zelda, Xenoblade2, Mario Kart Deluxe, Astral Chain, Mario Maker 2, Link's Awakening if you want more Link, Splatoon 2, the only reason I still have mine is for Metroid Prime 4 and Shin Megami Tensei V which will be out on PS4 too.


My mom bought me an overpriced New 3DS XL when those launched so I want to get some use out of it. Almost instantly, it became possible to buy a used one for 30% of what my mom paid. At least games are inexpensive and the library is extensive.


Neighbor got this just for SMASH


there is zelda and mareeo and the one where you can play as zelda and beat mariu up and thats basically it.


Was going to scrimp and save my NEET ass up for one of these just for Pokemon mainly (and DQXI), but the Dex-culling really pissed me off because my enjoyment from those games comes largely from autistically maintaining a full living dex and shiny hunting, and now literally hundreds of Pokemon that represent over 1000 total hours across several games are just unable to even be included.

So now I'm after a PS4 instead for Christmas, even this late in the life cycle. Maybe will get a good deal on a 1TB slim (A good gaming PC is obviously better but is out of the price range for me, a PS4 and three games at once will represent the most expensive thing I have gotten for a while by far. Such is being NEET and also having a relatively poor immediate family) sry for blogpost
