I've started to feel like playing games are a choir now for the past 2 or 3 years. Downloaded Day of Defeat: Source again to play a little but I know I'll eventually get tired of it. After that, I'll enter another cycle of finding a videogame that fills the void inside of me that reminds me that I'm that my hobbies I've enjoyed as a kid and a young teenager have passed. I think what I'm trying to say is how to do you deal with this situation and is it really possible to find other hobbies if you have the attention span of a gerbil.
Wasnt sure if I should have posted here on this board but if mods want to move it to the other board it's fine.

Why would you even want to enjoy gaming? Video Games had caused me to sit on my chair for hours without rest and had destroyed my mind. There's far better and less painful hobbies than gaming like reading or doing something offline. I honestly wish I never enjoyed gaming so that I got to live a healthier and a less painful life.

I'm the same with games and anime. JRPGs are okay here and there but nothing is fun any more. It's time to find new hobbies.

You just have to find that game that re-ignites the spark. Most modern games have more in common with movies and as a result don't have satisfying gameplay, which can result in you thinking you don't like video games anymore when that is not the case. I had a similar problem but recently found One Finger Death Punch and Downwell to be absurdly fun. I can play both for hours and hours and not even realize it. Controls are simple and easy to understand, no story or opening cinematic to slow things down, very pick up and play. Keep searching and don't bother with AAA games anymore, they're a lost cause.

Downwell is great, I recommend you play Nuclear Throne. Its similar to downwell but more complicated, still pretty simple compared to most rogue lites though.

And so the wizard streams thread returns after a long absence. Feel free to plug your own stream here, discuss active streamers and so on. As far as I can tell I'm the only active one currently, https://www.twitch.tv/stream_wizz (yes I just added another z to the old name, I'm not very creative), if I'm missing anyone just let me know and I'll delete and remake the thread.

I'd have no problem with streaming since I have a good connection, I play all kinds of stuff all day anyway, and there's an audience for it. But there seems to be an already established guy or group of guys doing it, I don't feel like having to "fight" for an already reduced group of people. If you ever need a replacement I'll give it a try.

Oddly enough I woke up more motivated to do it too. If there's no one watching or they go to some other guy then nothing lost. I have never done this so I have a lot of testing to do beforehand.
Do you guys want something in particular? Also, I have no microphone and I imagine most people prefer no voice but I want your opinion just in case.

Im planning to purchase a brand new prebuilt pc soon as I suck at tinkering with stuff and don’t want to bother learning to build one. Is now a good time to buy? Im not even sure how much money I am ready to sink into new hardware, but Id like it to last as long as possible ideally… Are there brands to avoid, standards soon to become obsolete, any basic trap for retards like me to be aware of?
PC I have right now is from 2011/12 and it was outdated even by that year’s standards, and I still use an old VGA screen from the mid 2000s, I guess I’ll have to ditch it and buy a new one?
I’d also like to know if shelling out some more money on top to get windows 10 is worth it? Again I reiterate I am tech illiterate and will rather spend more for convenience (like having the thing prebuilt) than waste time setting up linux or a pirated OS or something.

I'm getting a big chunk of change soon and might upgrade. I don't think I need to, I future proofed big time 7 years ago and I think only now is the CPU, RAM or MoBo are dying. Could be some virus I stupidly got that is causing the higher CPU and memory usage.

If I do buy I'll probably skip getting a new GPU right away. My 1060 I got gifted a couple years back still does the job just fine. Are SSDs worth it or are they a meme? I heard they are good for OS but use a standard HDD for storage, films, games etc.

I’m glad I havent bought a b450 msi board and a 3xxx cpu. Seems like I’ve dodged a bullet with the latest bios disaster. They are going to release “max” versions of their mobos natively compatible with the aforementioned ryzen cpus, but im wondering why not go with a newer 570 board, but the prices are ridiculous and the reviews are not exactly reassuring.

Are price drops for some gpus likely as manufacturers release newer and better 5700 in the coming weeks?

 No.46471

aaand done, just putting the finishing touches on the gentoo setup. so i'm back, confirming that the installation of the 3700x in the asus x370 mobo worked out just fine. not only that, but i'm running the latest linux kernel and gcc. i have heard there was some systemd boot issue on newer linux distros with the new ryzen chips, but it doesn't affect me since i don't use systemd. (it's probably patched already anyway.) the performance of this cpu is great. for example, i compiled firefox in roughly 14 minutes. i can't remember exactly what it was like on the 1600 since it's been a while since i last used gentoo, but i would guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-40 minutes.

anyway, the fact that i got the full gentoo installation, kde and all, with all the bells and whistles running in about a day's worth of work, is a pretty good indicator of how fast this cpu is, and i wasn't exactly rushing either. i just launched slay the spire on steam, it appears to be running fine after i installed xrandr. all my mods and stats carried over from windows, great!

now, i feel i should offer fair warning, my 3700x stock cooler, the wraith prism, did not come with the brackets needed to mount it on the motherboard. this was a big surprise to me, i was in the middle of installing it on the motherboard, checking and rechecking the packaging, wondering why they weren't there. i was worried i'd have to put the old cpu back in, order brackets from amazon, wait a few days… anyway, i luckily found some brackets that i had lying around in the "parts box." maybe they came with the motherboard back when i bought it… can't remember. but make sure you have mounting brackets for the cpu cooler if you're planning to go for a similar setup as i did! speaking of which, the temperatures seem decent, something like 47c while sitting on the bios screen. yes it's a little high, but it's rather hot where i live, and no a/c.

maybe next month i'll go for a 5700 xt… here's hoping there will be some good custom designs available. for now, back to tinkering with gentoo and testing some games.

This is a thread for sharing free game deals you find on the Internet.
Not free games, but specifically promos or ways of getting legit keys of otherwise non-free games.

You can get Watch Dogs for free if you install Uplay (Ubisoft's platform), launch it and click on the banner advertisement.
It's unclear how long this promo will last.

Played on private servers for years off and on, decided to try retail again recently.
Played a hunter until 60, got bored and tried all three specs constantly. The novelty of a melee hunter and having a gnome hunter got me into it, and when that wore off I rolled a tank monk. Level 53 now, leveling solely via random dungeon finder. Tank queues are nigh instant, it was ten minutes when I played healer and thirty minutes when I played dps.
I can see why people don't play tanks though. No one wants to lead, so I usually end up as party lead but for some reason people like to pull mobs instead of waiting for me. Rarely wait for healers to mana up, just chain pulls. It's frustrating when I die, so I'm thinking of leveling alchemy for the extra buffs and potions for an oh shit moment. I don't think I really need it though, if the encounter is going bad or the healer is behind on healing or I mess up keeping up on my brews then it isn't going to save me. When I was 23 I went heal monk and healed a tank monk and I was kind of offended when he used his heal on himself even though I was healing him, but now that I've played tank I only got through some big pulls by spamming the heal myself. I figured since it only costs energy it's no big deal, when I run out of brews and get low on health there doesn't seem to be much else to do. Probably not the best idea though, better to just keep attacking to get another brew cooldown.
The dungeons aren't as easy as I thought. On lower levels, cakewake and a half. Wailing caverns still takes forever to clear, but Stockades is a straight shot. I don't even know why they have mobs in the rooms, never seen anyone pull them at all and just zip to the bosses.
My favorite so far has to be the new Scholomance. They didn't sacrifice the atmosphere, made it much faster to run and cooler bosses. It's kind of strange that they have this longer more complex feeling to most of the other dungeons, they didn't differ that much from vanilla except they made some thing more user friendly like you don't need a mallet for gahz in ZF anymore.
I bought the starter, but I think I'm gonna buy the new expansion. I'll probably get bored of it in a month and regret ever playing it, but for now it's keeping me absorbed and that's enough for now.

It's a regular meeting of the world's richest and most powerful people (but not the most famous). Presidents, prime ministers, if you attend a bilderburg meeting, you're in the top echelons of society.
The weirdest thing about it is that it's real. My view of it is that it's just the only way these people will talk to people similar to themselves.
But they really do talk about organising their influence to a common goal, generally to try and avoid WW2 again.

Was never into WoW as I was mainly into RuneScape. However I picked it up last month and hit 120. Pretty fun but I think the leveling is too fast. I'm interested in trying vanilla when that comes out. I was thinking about trying a private server out, but knowing that I would eventually lose my progress bummed me out.
My guild is sort of comfy, ran by normies but all of them are in their late 20s or 30s/40s. Right now I'm sitting at 332 ilevel.

Level 20 now. I've been trying to come up with creative ways to beg for money and enjoying myself making people uncomfortable. I've tried selling "shiny red apples" to lvl 60 players and whispering them to buy an apple and hoping they're amused enough to give me some gold. So far the most I got was 5g.

When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

Here's one of my favorites, it's Shadow of Rome. Its an arena based action game where you play different Roman games, all of them include murdering others for your and the plebs entertainment. The other half of the game is a clunky and kinda difficult stealth game,feel free to look for walkthroughs, the action in the game is incredible and people often abandon it because of the stealth.

Hey /games/, I'm new to Starcraft. Can anyone explain how I play this game?

I bought Starcraft Remastered, and I want to learn how to play it. Not online, I'm not an online gaming kind of person.

Starcraft 2 feels too "E-Sport", and I didn't exactly like that feel.

Any and all tips are appreciated!

 No.46266

>>42940
I was never good at Starcraft but I played it for years until I eventually stopped. There's plenty of tutorials and youtube videos on it and I am bad in explaining in general.

When you first click the icon and start the game, you will see a screen where there are multiple options. Then you click the Single Player if you want to play immediately. Then you could click the characters at the up side in order to do campaign mode which is basically just campaign and tutorial. If you want to play with an AI on a custom terrain then you could click on Play Custom. After you click play custom you will see a screen with multiple stuff. You could choose what map you want to play with by clicking files that have map names on them. Then you could choose the race you want to play as and the race of the AIs that you will be fighting against.

After you do all of that you will see the screen where you do the actual game play and the ways you play the game depend on what race you pick. Even through you could technically play without hotkeys it will be very hard to play without it. I personally think Terran is the easiest for early players as it is most "simplest" on how you build in general. But regardless of which race you pick, you have to click and drag to create a green square to select multiple small workers you see from the start. After you do that you could right click on the minerals to start mining and gather resources to do anything. The 3 icons that you see on right top are showing number of minerals and the gas you have. Blue is the minerals and the green stuff are the gas. But the 3rd icon from the left represents population which shows how much population that you could sustain and you could increase that number by building Supply Depots if you are Terran or by building Pylons if you are Protoss(aliens who aren't insects). But if you are the Zerg(insects), you need to build units called Overlords if you want to increase population. There's hotkey for building every building and as it's impossible to size up and down your view, you have to move your perspective through hotkeys and by moving a mouse to the edge. You could send units to see through the fog of war that is represented through darkness and it's one of important factors. But if you are fighting against a computer, computer could know where you are regardless if they sent a scout tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

 No.46267

>>42940
You could probably still play fighting against computers even without memorizing all the hotkeys as they are dumb. But if you want to become more skilled and comfortable at the game, hotkeys are essential. Managing in general is important along with timing. Computer also had a predictable set of behaviors like producing certain amount of workers and always making a bunker at the small entrance to the base.
