I've been looking for a game that has really enjoyable magic combat and doesn't rely heavily on using swords, bows, etc. Closest game I have played that fits this is Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, but the spells are used supplementary to the sword combat than as actual attacks.


I called you 2 times. Why didn't you pick up? I'm horny.. Please call me.

What the fuck it's already been 4 years since I made this post - I was gonna come in here and say FTL but I already wrote it. I'll make one amendment, ignore Captains Edition, Multiverse is the superior modpack.

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.

Midnight Club 2 and 3 * Just a good racing game to zone out on. MC2 had a nice soundtrack too.
Zoo Tycoon * It got me into environment building. I wanted to play Sim City 2000 but I never got to. Honorable mention to Rollercoaster Tycoon, but it was only on "my Mom's computer" which I always got kicked off of.
Ratchet and Clank 2 and 3 * The levels were so good, I would play through them over and over again and draw my own on paper.
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas * "Midnight Club, but you could get out of the car and walk around (real cities)." I always wanted to play something like that and GTA was as close as you could get. Honorable mention to GTA 4, but SA was definitely more memorable for me. I still play San Andreas sometimes.
Sims 2 and 3 * I liked to build realistic cities in Sims 2 using the public lots, and I played every inch of Sims 2 gameplaywise, but I thought Sims 3 had a better system for making complex social scenarios it was just a huge pain to play it fighting the lag and slow load times. Even today I hate doing anything other than playing Sims 3 in live mode.
Civilization 5 * The historical flavor and after action reports got me into alt-history.


hmm quit lying about bethesda games guys. you all created a new character, modded it and got bored after a while then started all over again :))
lost track or how many skyrim characters I've dropped, tried everything from sekiro combat mods to dayzfying it with survival modifications
can you write down the names of those japanese games?


Tori no Hoshi: Aerial Planet
Inaka Kurashi: Nan no Shima no Monogatari
Yarudora Series (4 different games)
Hizashi No Naka No Real
Wonder Trek
Doki Doki Majo Shinpan!
Steambot Chronicles
PachiPara 14: Fuu to Kumo to Super Umi in Okinawa
Koufuku Sousakan
Armored Core: Last Raven

Not the poster, though, and I'd like to advise him to put names next time, otherwise it's bad netiquette.


Oh, I forgot, clockwise from top left.


I could tell you what games I like the most but I can't really say that any game has impacted me in any way. It's just a way to pass the time. Not like I'm getting my life understanding from the philosophical exposition in video games.

are there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

shin megami tensei strange journey was in my top 5 games of all time list back in 2012 to 2018.
i replayed it this year and it's so much easier and braindead than i remembered, i think i became more skilled at turn-based games and at exploring maps and conserving MP, and this game just offers no difficulty whatsoever for me now and i steamrolled through all fights. i remember when i first played the game, horkos was so difficult that i died to him 8 times in a row. when replaying i killed him in like 5 turns. it is a simplistic game for babies. play wizardry 8 if you want a hard turn based experience.

or how about dead rising? this is another game that i considered infallible art, i bought an xbox just to play this game back in the day. when replaying its HD rerelease on PS4, all of the psychopaths are way less interesting than i remember them being, the dialogue isn't even cheezy or fun, it's just melodramatic. dead rising 2 is superior in just about every single way with much more effort put into balance and content quality and quantity. and the funny thing is, i didn't even like dead rising 2 at launch. it makes me feel like i've evolved as a person.

maybe i will add more later as i think more on this subject.

let me know if this has happened to you.

I don't feel too sad. I've changed much for the better. It's that I realized how bad the game design for these games were. I 100% my games now on the first try or at least complete it. If I find it's punishing to 100% or play, I drop the game and never look back. I only 100%'d these games since they were my childhood games. I still never even BEAT LOZ:WW though.


Tranny activist ew


FFXIV. The game got dumbed down to such an extreme that I just find no joy in the "end-game" content anymore. Homogenised jobs, lack of job fantasy, lack of build customisation, brainlet rotations with little in the way of optimisation or variety. Sure the fights get flashier but it always comes down to the same song and dance you need to learn and memorise and perform. Then you grind the raid/trial for 6 months to upgrade your gear and reset next patch when it gets bumped up a whopping 10 ilevels. At least there's no fear of falling behind since catch up gear is always easy to acquire and virtually handed out, giving you a ticket into what is "new" to do. The story is fine and serviceable I'll give it that much, but I don't play this as a single-player game. Which leads into my biggest gripe. The community.

Why is everyone in this game so fucking horny? Half the people you find have some kind of slutglam on. But that's not the end of it. It's an MMO, of course I expect grown men pretending to be female to deck themselves out in the most uninspired hornywear they can find. It's when they don't shut the fuck up about sex or make lame flirty jokes with each other in dungeons or raids. went searching for an FC and each of the 4 I joined which seemed promising all had the same types of people in it who couldn't seem to get their minds off sex. It's quite likely half of them fucking ERP'd too. I go into any of the game cities and get bombarded with people advertising in-game "clubs", of which upon research I found they sell in-game fucking SEX. The game is paradoxically both too anti-social and social at the same time, hitting both extremes. You just want a chill group static with no commitments outside of clearing? No can do. Either have some friends already or join up with an FC and suck up to everyone on Discord. Where they will spam porn and horny modified screenshots of their characters. It drives me insane and I'm not on Crystal before anyone says. I know full well that's supposed to be the containment DC for this tripe but it seems to be everywhere. It never used to be this bad 5+ years ago and just seems another symptom of how everyone on the internet and everyone Gen Z seems to be perpetually horny 24/7 and won't shut the fuck up about it.


I remember it still being the horny/tranny game when I played it back around the time the golden saucer was released. I'm honestly not surprised they've dumbed things down so much or that they continue to do so, I've gotten back into it recently and it's mindblowing how bad the average player in regular dungeons is. Not new players either, but ones without the little sprout or with the little crown. I'm talking about normal ARR content too, the game almost plays itself and they somehow suck at it. I'll probably never touch any of the "difficult" content, I'd get too frustrated trying to pug it with a community like this and having to network in a videogame seems miserable.
A keyboard is arguably the optimal input method for both those genres, not nearly as enjoyable though.


>tranny game
It is more than ever. I just put this down to a reflection of the modern world now though more than anything. Though it's no surprise that a cutesy weeb game with catgirls, dress-up, housing and other dull social tendencies like "clubbing" and of course "(e)rp" attracts that kind of person. But you're right that the average player is just atrocious. There's a myriad of reasons for that ranging from it being a mostly casual "MMO", the abundance of roleplayers, people who don't really play games etc etc. A far-cry from even the likes of FFXI which was positively hardcore in comparison to this. Finding a competent "static" to play with is really a necessity for at least savage content. I barely managed to scrape through the current extremes in party finder after grafting for days but savage was just impossible. The content isn't even difficult. It's literally just a memory game so long as you have big enough stat sticks to meet the bare minimum.

I believe there used to be a thread for this but I cant find it, apologies if there is one.
Any wizzies interested in game dev?
Discuss tools, post progress, etc

>I think I might have to go with Unreal unironically even though I will likely utilize a fraction of its features
If you hop on the UE5 bandwagon you can get your project some notoriety early on. UE5 with its "infinite polygon" technology makes it a real good performer when you scrape away the fat. Instead of bogging down the shader and VRAM with image materials you can just carve detail directly in to static meshes and then apply proceural shaders per-vertex with no substantial performance impact. EU4 assets can be quickly made compatible with UE5 but not vice-versa for all.


here is a comparison of unity vs unreal

free - $0/yr for <100k annual profit previous year
plus - $400/yr for 100-200k profit previous year
pro - $1800/yr for >200k profit previous year

standard - $0 for <$1M total profit, everything afterward has a 5% royalty

it's hard to directly compare them because unity is royalty free with an annual subscription based off the previous year's profit, and unreal uses total profit with a royalty. for most people, they will never make more than $1M, so of course unreal will be completely free, but these amounts really are nothing when you're making that much money. the biggest loss comes from the fees that steam charges, like 35%. epic games has a much better 5% fee but isnt as popular yet


>What games inspired you to do it?
Fond memories of playing Spyro, Jak and Daxter and even Croc. I might do something else first like a shmup or a monkey ball clone or something just to experiment with 3d. A monkey ball clone would be ideal for figuring out analog controls/camera controls and could be finished fairly quickly. The levels are just made up of textured boxes and you don't really need to have any animations. It's all physics-based.
>biggest loss comes from the fees that steam charges, like 35%. epic games has a much better 5% fee but isnt as popular yet
I didn't know that about Epic. itch.io might even be free to use but it isn't exactly synonymous with quality or well known. Most popular itch-related YouTube videos are about downloading utterly broken games and malware from the site.


you can pay whatever you want to itch.io, even nothing. but itch is mostly for indie developers and is pretty well known for that. successful devs on there become successful mostly by making tons of simple games, quality over quantity. for your first game it's probably the best site to sell on


*quanity > quality

i started to use a mic while playing vidya for the first time ever. usually the encounters are good or i just have people calling my voice retarded but i dont know how to deal with genuine irrational hostility.

Like >>56776 said you usually have stuff like pings and pre-recorded voice lines in most games these days, and it's worth noting both of these things cut through any sort of language barrier as well. Unless you are on some sort of pro-gaming esports team or trying to coach some noob/retard I don't see why you would ever need a microphone


i must be out of the loop since i havent played much online games at all since about 2010. e.g. halo 3 had no way to communicate other than voice.

i dont believe you that you can communicate well enough with voice lines and placing markers, especially while using all your fingers to competitively play the game

I tried playing the latest Halo Infinite a little. When i did ranked, i had people joining with microphone and shaming other players for not having them. im sensitive to that. i assume it would get worse at higher ranks. The non-ranked gametypes were terrible but maybe thats just a halo problem


Turn off other's microphones


All of that sounds so freaking obnoxious. I think I'll stick to single-player games.


use a voice changer or an eq to remove nasal or ugly frequencies

No idea why, but I love those hentai games where you play as a shota who has to avoid getting raped by monster succubi and (literal) succubi. I don't find appealing the ones where you're some chad who rapes succs or some succubus who weakens male enemies by having sex with them, and much less wholesome hentai games. I especially like the ones where the battle mechanics revolve on being raped (usually RPG's).

Most of the ones I've tried, however, are rather bad, have serious shortcomings, have no translation, or are super short, which is a shame. I still enjoy trying them out as I await for the arrival of the legendary perfect monster succubus game.

I like a lot of the games I see posted on hemdomblog, at least the ones I can get working on my potato linux laptop.


Really would love a open world h-game with lolies.
Only way I could see that happening is a open world h-game with decent mod tools.


I know this is the answer everyone hates, but I bet you could totally mod skyrim into that.


True. Wouldn't be ideal but it would be better then nothing at all.


same, I keep waiting for the perfect femdom succubi game

Zoomer here, I've got a lot of time to kill, I wanted to ask any wizzies here what would be some must play games for me to try out on any console excluding ps5 exclusives. I've started playing some ps2 games such as drakengard and Persona 3, I got really tired of all the dark souls I played. Preferably give me a lot of japanese made games, although that isnt mandatory. Thank you!

you remind me of myself 3 years ago. stop it before you become completely retarded


World of Warcraft (possibly classic if you have a low end PC?)
Old School Runescape for super low end PCs

Halo: Infinite > Destiny 2 > Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
PC: Counter Strike Global Offensive
Fallout 4 is an nice single player option, must-buy to be honest, $20 for GOTY version on amazon
DOTA 2 > League of Legends > Heroes of the Storm

GTA V is the best one here, waiting on #6 patiently, Just Cause

RTS: Halo Wars 2, Civilization, Starcraft 2 (PC)

Turn Based: Final Fantasy XIV Online, FF7 Remake

These are basically all my must-play games. If it's popular it's usually because it's good.


what are you even doing on this board.


>Steambot Chronicles
Fuck, I was just thinking about this game the other day and started listening to the songs again. One of my favorite games ever, such a shame the sequel got killed.

hello fellow wizards, i was wondering if you knew some good wizard related audios to listen for long session gaming that doesn't require your full attention like grinding for example.
any recommendation is welcome.

I like to listen to cumtown and the old Karl Pilkington XFM Shows


I listen to demolition d while playing games even if he mostly just plays Yakuza games. There aren't really any other streamers I can even partway relate to.

cirno_tv might actually be a wizard. The last time I watched him regularly was years ago and he was a 28-year-old virgin at that time. I don't watch streamers in general as much as I used to.



destiny, jordan peterson and thorin (if you're into esports) have some good stuff


Todd thundercock on youtube

This game sucks. The controls are slippery and stiff, the camera is obnoxious and the graphics are ugly and outdated.

This game is only popular because of nostalgia and shitty memes.

I like all kinds of games and I've been playing them for 20+ years, but I never played the Doom games until the pandememe. It was very fun, because while it's incredibly simplistic at a glance, the level design, the enemies and the weapons give it a lot of depth, in the later levels you need to basically plan out a route, memorize health and ammo pickups, learn which weapons work best against each enemies, if you fuck up you will feel overwhelmed and will need to think how to make it alive out of a sticky situation, it's like a survival horror in a way. About the graphics, I can see where you come from but for me personally it's enough to be immersed.


>ubisoft, elder scrolls, witcher
nice competition there wow…
>maps and compass are bad
yea if you only played the simpleton rpg genre, try those old school dungeon crawlers or japanese survival horror
>combat compared to the witcher
why dont you compare it to nioh, ninja gaiden and monster hunter or better yet an actual fighting game and beat em ups


I don't know if this actually makes sense to anyone else, but Souls games have always felt like just mediocre games from an alternate universe where the shift in game design that started in the 6th/7th generation never happened and modern AAA games aren't terrible. They're better than almost anything else coming out, but I just can't understand the passion people have for them.


I know what you're saying, best part was when he compared the combat to the witcher 3..


If we go by todays standards sure but the controls was decent for the time being a "actual child"

I've been playing a lot of Megaman X lately. My favourite game in the series is X4. What do you guys think? Also, just action platformer thread.

Ive never played a fucking Mega Man game before (really) what's the best game to play?


Are you into a more classic platformer or something more advanced? It's important to know what series I should recommend


Can't go wrong with MM 2 or MMX


I'm going to have to jump in here, I'd recommend megaman 6 or megaman x2, mm2 is really rough and there are crappy bosses, mmx is unrefined and doesnt have any interesting bosses


Trying to get the different endings and secrets
