D&D thread.
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.
Writeups of the sessions will likely go here and discussion of the game and system(s) also goes here.

The heat of the deep underground cannot be felt in this bubble of sanctity. The air is cool, and pleasant to breathe. The party can see outside the hut and see flames bursting out of the walls occasionally, small heat resistant crabs scuttling about, some are intrigued by the dead chimera, and as the party rests, the crabs start surrounding it and are pinching and gnawing away parts of it. There is a natural order down here just as other locations, but the heat is clearly too high to sustain their own life down here for very long.
Fith and James leave the hut, and the magma crabs snipping and chewing away at the corpse of the chimera scatter. Rested, the party moves on and explores. They pass a chasm, filled with lava, beyond which are a big pile of uncut gems, useful for spell ingredients. Around the corner is a powerful heat source. It's so hot they can't even look directly at it as their eyes begin to boil. They shield themselves from it and shuffle around it, keeping as much distance as they can. Past it they notice a lever and a suspiciously familiar magical field. However, wary of its contents, James hammers a dagger into the ground, and uses it as leverage to pull the lever with a rope. He pulls and the field vanishes, but then a massive gust of wind hits them both in the back and knocks them forwards. No injuries, but certainly surprise.
They explore the room revealed and it's a desk, a broken bed and a little water fountain. Everything is cold. The water is refreshing and sweet, almost. So cool it's amazing in the heat of the under-underdark. They find some notes about some technical diagrams, and a few legible scribblings:
"The Azers have been cooperative. In exchange for rare ores and gems they're willing to share what they have, or do labour. Pretty useful for hot areas. They are very useful at moving about hot objects. Don't mind their chanting… and music."
"The crabs seem to stay away from cold areas, thankfully. I felt guilty eating them so I relied on other food instead. They did taste.. charred."
There's a pile of cold magma crabs in the corner. There's a pile of near incomprehensible notes on power and geothermal energy. "Cores of energy… heat absorbed…" and some techincal looking blueprints. James stashes them for later examination.
They explore further, and find demonic chanting coming from behind a thick stone door. Far too heavy for these weak wizards, James knocks, ineffectually. He trPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The discussion on magic and reality took a turn to silence as the forest reveals its own view. The leaves turn and brush against each other in the breeze, the birds sing, and the beauty experienced is a mere shell for the desperate struggle for life and death that all these life forms experience daily.
The two adventurers head to Domea. The village welcomes them, and they also meet an old friend. Tim. Tim from the bunker. His weird shaped head gives him away and it turns out he's been adventuring in his spare time. He boasts, in his weird dialect, that he has altered slightly his food generating powers to do things like create sausages in the knees of monsters and hot soup in their lungs.
A meeting with mirabella is made to facilitate the collection of this quantity of goods. There are a lot of items, lots of logs, cloth, leather, and various tars and components. Mirabella thanks them for solving the dome problem and protecting domea, and signs a letter for Theodore in the market to read.
They head to Theodore - and he is initially dismissive. He stands in the centre of the market with a pair of primitive glasses holding a book, walking around and inspecting the various market stalls, while the stall owner looks nervously on. The party stop him in his tracks and deliver him the letter. He opens the wax seal, reads the contents, and suddenly becomes really cooperative and helpful, saying he'll have the goods shortly. Except the cloth, there just isn't that much cloth and leather in the town, so they may try and trade with the minotaurs. They just happen to be arriving the next day, which is such a coincidence. They trade every few days so it turns out not to be, however.
The two drink and catch up with Tim, he introduces himself to James and shares the stories of his food magic. Fith says a glorious speech about demons and their power and the tradgedy of such unnatural forces. Demons and gods are not the same, James argues. But effectively there may not be such a difference, except in their outlook on the lesser beings roaming this mortal plane.
James tries to teach 200 years of science over some beers. The idea that air is a fluid and exists, and that gravity is an actual force are not well received.
James finds a jeweller who was out of work. James drops a sack of uncut gems on his table and asks them to be ground or cut. Several thousand gold worth of gems would be the end result, and the jeweller happily does it for a solPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

New campaign. a fine entry point for newcommers.

we play online with no video, if you are interested send an email to:

I will post a propper writeup at some point if I can stay ahead of it.

The two hired contractors arrive on the same carriage to the faraway city, they are 2 days early and gather information about it.

one is the manipulative changeling, the other a brute of massive proportion, the changeling is quick to squeeze information from the locals and on his methods he does rub one of the guards the wrong way.

the changeling brings out a book of grudges, he gets info about the job, some rescue of the 2 other adventurers that were hired for this job, besides the job itself.

I would write more but, can be arsed to it.

Should I get a new gen console or a gaming PC based on the fact that I only enjoy a select few games. No offense, but I'd rope myself before playing a lot of the stuff you like. Maybe I need to broaden my tastes because I used to enjoy a lot more games as a kid but I really can't bring myself to give a fuck about most games.

Games I like:


I remember a few years ago, I bought an original Xbox system so I could play my childhood favorites out of nostalgia. I didn't enjoy them and they felt very dated. I was an obsessed freak, too - buying a CRT TV, several controllers (in case anyone would play with me), component cables for best possible graphics… and none of it captured the nostalgia and just made me spaz out over recapturing the old feelings to no avail


A PC of course. Emulation is a thing.


Almost all of those games have pretty good ports so emulation isn't even needed.

This are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.

Does anyone else feel like this?

Please refrain from political shitposting about Gamergate esque indie dev drama, that's not what this is for.

Bump, been loving this thread for years.

I've been playing 毛塊 before bed, if you have a phone give it a try. They had this game for years on there then the thing disappeared from google play for a whole year. Now it's back up again.

I played through 4 free indie games today that you can get off Steam. I'd say all 4 had their merits. I'll list them below.

#1 - September 1999: Very short horror game that only lasts for about five minutes, but has good atmosphere and also no jumpscares to worry about. Has a found footage aesthetic. Neat little experience. Similar to another free game called The Static Speaks My Name, which I'd recommend checking out as well.

#2 - When the Darkness comes: Stanley Parable type game about anxiety and depression with a bit of a horror aspect to it that has a length of about 40-50 minutes, but can be replayed for different endings. Bit of an in-cely feel to it at times, but has some otherwise good/unsettling segments in it that actually feel relevant to being perpetually socially isolated and struggling with mental illness and thoughts of suicide. The developer speaks as the narrator and has a very thick (French?) accent and sounds like he's about 16 years old which can also be quite distracting/annoying, so fair warning on that. You also have the option to just hang yourself at the end, which I appreciated and is the only ending I chose, or cared to see.

#3 - Burning Daylight: LIMBO/Inside type sidescrolling adventure game set in a neon laden cyberpunk dystopia that lasts for about 30-40 minutes. Pretty high production values for a free game, which is commendable. You don't really do much except walk to the right and take in the scenery, but it does that sort of thing well enough and has good atmosphere to soak around in while taking note of the environmental story telling going on in the background. Reminded me a bit of that show 'Love, Death, and Robots', in the sense of it being almost like a playable segment similar to the likes of the stories you'd see showcased there. Would be interesting to see it become a full game someday, but it's a solid and complete experience as it stands.

#4 - Answer Knot: Short first person narrative that lasts about 25 minutes. Kind of annoyingly normalfag at first, since you play as a guy listening to your wife's phone messages that she periodically leaves you while stumbling around some house and interacting with items based on what she's talking about while inevitably seeing photos of their obnoxious normalfag life plastered everywhere, but the game picks up once the actual story/strange events start coming into play, which takes roughly about 5-10 miPost too long.

From the same developer is 30秒マン. If you're interested in shmups or any other kinds of games that involve dodging, this game is a nice way to practice that. Rather than having free movement or a jump or anything, you constantly hop back and forth between the ceiling and the floor while Metal Blades come from the sides. There's three stages and each stage lasts 30 seconds, although there isn't a scoring system or anything. Just last 30 seconds and you're done.

According to the in-game rankings, only 37 people have beaten the game on Hard. I might try to beat it, too. It would be cool to have tangible proof that I'm one of only ~50 people in the world to have beaten something.


There are a lot of hentai doujin games on the +18 section of DMM the vast majority of them are truly shit games but some of them are decent games that have +18 scenes slapped on them to sell.

Check out some games you may like and torrent them on nyaa sukebei.

Does anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?

>escort missions are intolerable

you must hate GTA then


GTA has a lot things to like


Not really, I like GTA, there aren't that many escort missions really


No Goldeneye? This is a mouse aim hack playthrough. Many of the 007 games are pretty good, especially the ones on Gamecube with the driving sequences.

Salt and Sanctuary maybe (probably not)
Ori and the Will of the Wisps… wait I haven't played the first one yet.
So nothing.


I am good on games for now.
Have tons in my back catalog I need to play.

Might get that popular animated wallpaper app if it goes on sale but other then that I am good until the next really big seasonal sell.

I really like salt and sanctuary. Definitely recommend you get it next sale.


Thanks. I always was on the fence about this one because it looks like it tries so hard to ape the Souls series, but in 2D.

This is the worst retro game of all time, it can barely even be considered a game.


Ok, you want a cookie or something?

I suppose it’s a taboo subject to bring up with you?

What’s a shovelware/shitty licensed title that you like even though it’s bad? For me it’s probably Garfield’s Fun Fest for the DS. I have a lot of fun replaying it, and I like the Garfield health mechanic with you needing to find food to keep garfield alive as his health slowly ticks down.

I really enjoyed Zuma Deluxe


Worms 3D on gamecube when it came out, I would not touch it now though. Maybe I'll have a look at some gameplay video out ot nostalgia but I'm afraid I will cringe at how bad it is and why it is that I have had fun with it back then…
I also liked Yoshi's Story on the N64 as a kid, some years later I found out that it was not as well received on the internet and that kinda surprised me. Again I have no intention of replaying it and ruining my memories.
Can't really think of anything else tbh. Even without the internet I seldom picked actual shovelware on the systems I owned, and mostly went for what looked interesting or I knew about from my siblings. Great idea for a thread nonetheless.

I'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0 (Oblivion analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2tiINl-X8 (Nier Automata analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEj5FsBXFuM (Mass Effect indoctrination theory (there are three parts I believe))

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk8tsK-FIdE (Pokemon Yellow glitch series)

I also like this guys game design videos

or pannenkoek2012's SM64 videos.

I just realized I'm being kinda vague here, I'm bascially searching for informative game videos. Any game goes.

We're only a few days away now from the release.

If you're playing on the XB1 you can try changing your location setting to New Zealand to play early. Apparently this has worked in the past for some players of games like AC: Valhalla.

To force people to buy, to ensure that pirating it will not work.
