I've been following how–probably solely because of Project '06–The Sonic '06 game has had a comeback recently. Like there are people who are genuinely saying that it's good.

Anyways, what do you think of Sonic?

>was sonic ever popular in japan
No. The first Sonic game sold like a 150k copies in Japan (compared to millions in the US and Europe) and it's been further downhill ever since.
>always seemed like it was tailored for the american market
Sonic was literally designed from the ground up to specifically cater to Western sensibilities (which probably explains why he never got popular in Japan).

75% off a game doesn't mean much when the game was 80% overpriced to begin with.

This is a big trouble these days. I'd rather Western devs do a cute toon thing like AHIT than them trying to mimic japanesery. China devs are bugs though, soulless shekel hounds.

The best page on the Wizchan Wiki was the list of free games, nearly all of which were low-spec and could be easily downloaded without bloatware software managers such as Steam. I'd like to rebuild a list of games that meet the criteria of free, with a suggested focus on games which are capable of running on that old IBM Thinkcenter in the closet.

What games define you? What are the games that left an impact on you, that you'll never forget? It honestly didn't take me long to figure it out for myself. An honorable mention and 10th would be MGSV for me as well.

Hello my fellow sorcerers, with the Steam sale up I come looking for suggestions on things that have *some* player interactivity, competitive or otherwise.

Let me elaborate in case you need further input:

So real people suck, therefore I thoroughly enjoy diving into game worlds, but the problem with that is that once the main quest is done and you've beaten a single player game, there's barely any reason not to uninstall it and buy/pirate a new game and this is rather unpleasant for me. This is where the added replay value provided by competition/"community" comes in.

Good examples of games you can truly dedicate years to in the manner I mean are:

1. Fighting Games in general, but mostly SF and Tekken because there are thousands of sweaty players dedicating daily hours to them, BUT, this comes with the caveat of needing to have a high tolerance for frustration from losing and/or sucking unless you're a prodigy or enjoy grinding hours on end in the lab (I mostly don't)

2. Pokemon, or better yet Monster Rancher. Relatively niche communities with solitary players that sporadically gather strictly for competition or for sharing knowledge. This completely removes the performance anxiety of fighters, at least for me, and they're a good experience all around

3. Permutations of already solid single player experiences, e.g., Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children which is an amazing Tactics RPG with 100+ hours of campaign AND available PvP (and Coop) elements to extend the game's life exponentially

With all that out of the way, do you have any other ideas that wise wizards could invest their time and money into?

I've been trying new genres of games and as a lower skilled player the only thing that allows me to try these games in multiplayer is SBMM. I've tried games in the same genre without it, and the difference of what my true level is is palpable. I've been reading forum threads to see what the normies think about it. And one thing I've learned is that the type of gamers who post on forums, are usually not your typical average gamer, but more hardcore just to care enough to post. So often their complaints might be the opposite for a casual noob like me, and actually be to my benefit.

Its just an interesting exercise in hypocrisy and the golden rule with the SBMM bitching. They don't like being hunted by the sharks, but complain that they can't have a "casual relaxing" game of hunting guppies. Theres no self-awareness of staring into the mirror, of what a hell being around people like themselves is.

I used to have this fantasy of all the Nietzschean ubermen, will to power, will to dominate types being sent to their own Mad Max island where they can dominate each other. Wolves eating wolves. But it seems its not every fun to be on a diet of wolfmeat, they need some nonconsenting sheep too. I've seen some proposals for a more voluntary SBMM. But the self-aware among them, admit that most casuals would choose it, and so they'd still be in the same box. Basically they want casuals to be forced to play with them.

It just fascinating to see in the gaming world, how ubermen feel about being sent to my Mad Max island where wolves can only eat other wolves.

Holdfast community is a really interesting thing and quite balance imho.
In one public game you can have extremely professional players fighting tooth and nail for controlling one ground, and next to it you can have a fist fight with musicians from both sides dancing together and neither would get a 2nd look. Pro players don't shit on people who just have fun and those who have fun are perfectly fine with pro's too.
It is really a nice break up from the time when I shouted at for failing to uber some heavy in a specific moment in tf2.

PR? You mean project reality?
Man that game was fun. Especially insurgency mode where both sides were a bit more goofy. I loved packing a 5-8 men into one big car and basically going on a suicide mission. Nevermind the all cars that blow up and people shouting allahakbar on mumble.
Simple times. Now the servers are empty and Squad is more popular but I feel that game still needs a bit more work.

You get a similiar vibe in TF2 but it's more segregated by servers. There's competitive servers where everyone better get their shit together and then there's 24/7 2Fort where you can fight if you feel like it but it's mostly for goofing around and hanging out.

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.

I played Final Fantasy II/IV when I was 5. This was the first real "story" I ever engaged with. The whole "the villain is actually your relative" trope that most people get introduced to with Star Wars? That happened to me with FFIV. Every minor plot twist blew my mind ("What? Kain is against me? What? Kain is being mind-controlled by Golbez? What? Golbez is actually my brother?!!!). But when I saw that whale, I had this cognitive dissonance finally hit me. It was just too much. I was just too overwhelmed. I had to step back and sort of 'recap' what the hell was even happening.

"I'm flying on a cybernetic whale powered by a planet-powering magical crystal I got from a mythical dwarven kingdom underground so I can go to the MOON to stop my brother from an instellar race war."

Keep in mind that this was my first introduction to the concept of dwarves, cybernetics, instellar travel, magic, etc.. I saw this all in one go and had this overwhelming sense of, "So this is what is possible of human creativity." And from that point on, I probably had way too high of a bar.

Every movie or show I've ever watched or listened to has been pitted against that lens and it feels like nothing comes close. Citizen Kane is good? Oh, does it introduce me to cybernetics? Does it push the boundaries of reality to the point where I'm ON A FUCKING WHALE IN SPACE? No? Sounds pretty boring then. I've known other videogames with insane plotlines or concepts. I've played games that make me feel like a God. But I haven't watched a movie with a plotline that even comes close. I haven't seen a soccer game that has pushed my mind to the same level.

I was spoiled when I was 5 by videogames, and the world has kept looking so dull ever since.

I played this a lot. I got the GBA version with the postgame dungeon and got all the lunar summon books, too. Killed Zeromus EG or whatever his name was first try. Dragoon has been my favorite Final Fantasy class ever since just because it looks so cool.
