Neverwinter Nights has just about infinite content considering how long it's been out. There are a ton of user-made campaigns and servers for that game. The servers often called "persostemt worlds" or PWs are basically small MMORPGs. I played a mod based on an original adventure by Gary Gygax "The Keep on the Borderlands", which I think is pretty fun for giving a new character a test run. Also the character building is very in-deprh since it's based on 3e rules.

I want to play pirated games but don't want to infect my computer with virus.
So I am thinking of dual Booting windows
So that I can run games on one partion and use another partition for serious work
In case if the gaming partition get infected with malware I can simply reset that partition.
Will this work correctly??

Nobody knows, I wouldn't put my money on them being a female, cracker empress (popular for being the one cracker who can crack denuvo games) was recently said to be some fat polish dude, which is not 100% proven but very likely to be true.
Them pretending to be a female is probably just a ploy to get more donations from desperate idiots and maybe make investigations harder, which I doubt would work but they may think it does.

Anybody play Fire Emblem? What are your thoughts about Fire Emblem Engage? Personally, i'm excited for it. We haven't really got a fire emblem game before that looks this colourful, and the entire premise just seems like it could be stupid fun even if the stories bad. It also seems like they're returning to more traditional gameplay ie bringing back the weapon triangle/a jaigen character and the maps looks like they could possibly have much tighter design than three houses. But who knows. Honestly who cares if the game ends up being bad, i'll probably still get some enjoyment out of it and we know that a genealogy remake is coming because of the leaks so it's not like the series is dead if this game sucks.

Also, what are your favourite FE games? Personally, my top 5 would be Radiant Dawn > Conquest > Genealogy > Path of Radiance > Three houses.

FE art has been pretty hit-or-miss since shadow dragon. It would be neat if they'd stick to an artstyle like echoes or tellius, but it seems like they're continuing to lean into the anime.

In my opinion it is but I don't know if you'll think so.
I replayed conquest about a dozen times, but only played birthright once and almost didn't finish revelation, so to me the difference is night and day.

Picked up Radiant Dawn with the intention of completing it this time, I had a save file with a bunch of characters with capped stats from the prequel including Sothe, Jill, Zihark and Nephenee so it made a big difference in those early chapters where they are the only remotely useful units. Illyana is unsalvageable though.
It's not as bad as I remembered, definitely a mixed bag but still a fun game overall. Most of part 2 is crap and so is every chapter with the paladins and Marcia. The ones with a billion non-playable units you cannot give orders to are very tedious, it always makes me wonder how anyone in the development team could sit through these parts and not be frustrated and think they should tone it down a bit.

I'm about to start the final chapter(s) I hope it's good and not some cheap gimmicky bs.

any good romhacks out there? i know about vision quest and sacred echoes, anything else worth checking out?

I think what you want to do is, use VPN (yes, buy a subscription) then you get a torrent client (qBitTorrent for example) then you go to russian pirating site rutracker dot org. You right click anywhere on the page, click "translate to English"m make an account. Search for game, download torrent file, then download the game using torrent client.
It is surprisingly good moderated site, with it's own standarts to torrents, the ammount of poorly made ones is minimal and they get deleted, so it's moderated even.

It depends on what the game is. If it’s a linear story game, I expect 12 hours of gameplay. Which is about a week of playing for the average person if not longer. Palworld is honestly starting to bore me already and I only have like five hours on it. That’s probably just cause survival crafting games are about as fun as watching paint dry to me though.

>That’s probably just cause survival crafting games are about as fun as watching paint dry to me though.

Fair enough.
Not every genre appeals to everyone.
For example I can't get into rts games while some people can play the same rts game over and over for a decade or more.

That said it does seem a popular genre, which is one of the reasons palworld is doing so well.
I mean think about some of the most monstrously popular games of the past few years. Most involved building shit+try not to die+
whatever x factor.
Fortnight, minecraft, etc.

I just hope they will be supportive of users making their own fun with mods and eventually community servers when networking is added.
Jap companies tend to be suspicious of internet communities more often than not.

I'm really enjoying playing Euro Truck Sim 2 right now. I'm having a better time now than when I first played it years ago. I really like the concept of the game but never really cared for driving around Germany and England. I find the general atmosphere, especially of Germany, to be depressing and gloomy for the most part. Driving around gray Hamburg under a gray sky or damp London was never my idea of fun, so even though I like the game, it lacked an environment I like. The DLCs really did it for me though, especially Iberia and Italy. I just completed driving through the entire Iberian Peninsula's coastline, starting from Bordeaux, Bayonne and going West all the way to A Coruña then south to Faro, Algeciras, Malaga, Murcia up to Montpellier. Wonderful experience and having put around 100h years ago and 20 hours now, this route is by far the best this game has to offer imo (probably, I still have to drive around Italy and France some more, but I don't think it will be as fun as Iberia, though those two countries are fun to drive around as well). I still have to drive around Eastern Europe but I'm not holding my breath for that region. Drove around Scandinavia a bit and it's fine.

One thing that bothers me a little is that the DLCs don't have as much polish as the original map. There's less attention to detail and I get the feeling parts of it are rushed and made for completion's sake more than trying to capture the right atmosphere/architecture, though none of the places I visited so far I would call it bad but they lack some of the enthusiasm you can notice in the original map.

I’ll make a dedicated thread for it since I’m also planning to post about American Truck Simulator soon which is basically the same thing. Also lots of pictures.

I might genuinely be autistic and I'm not even joking… though the thing is, a part of me feels perfectly fine with it. I mean, does anyone else here do this? I've never finished a single Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Pokémon… and that's just for the major Nintendo IPs, if I go for other major ones, I've never finished a single Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear, Elder Scrolls, Mega Man, Castlevania… and then there are also so many licensed IPs that are successful in video games aswell, I haven't played many in the last few years either… and whenever I try, I just drop it after a while, they're not much fun to me. I essentially have these dozen franchises I grew up playing and loving so much, and nowadays I either replay the ones I grew up with, or go after new installments from those very franchises that I hadn't really played before, over and over again…

>Is this a sign of undiagnosed autism or ADHD?

>Have you ever gone though something similar?
I've attempted to get started on some of these major franchises before, those lists with the so called top video games of all time, the ones you have to play, the ones no one in this hobby should miss out on at all… and yet I never get truly immersed in it and often drop it in favor of playing yet another installment from a favorite franchise of mine… is it because I didn't grow up with them? I suppose so, perhaps if I did then they'd be among these franchises I always go back to, though there's no way to be sure… still, it's cozy in a way, the familiarity, and discovering a new favorite among an old franchise you know and love, though at times it feels like I'm genuinely missing out, at least from what is written everywhere online, but whenever I try to break away and try these interesting IPs people acclaim, it just doesn't do it for me, a part of me wishes it did… but that's fine.

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.

Fad games come and go. I remember when OW was the supposed to be the Counter Striker killer and many pros were switching to it, but the CS formula is over 2 decades old at this point. I've been playing since 1.6 myself and it's just a game people will keep coming back to no matter what.

I don’t think valorant will ever be what CS was, for the simple fact that it’s far too corporatized. You can’t mod it, you can’t run it off a flash drive, I don’t know if it has LAN play (not that people even use LAN anymore). Games like TF2 and CS that grew as communities just can’t exist anymore. Valorant is just FPS league of legends.

Same person who posted this. Because I'm a retard who never learns, I decided to try playing again. Imagine my absolute lack of surprise to find that everything has become WORSE. Every other adventure plate has {Mare Lamentorum} on it. The game seems riddled with horny female characters everywhere you look. I actually got accosted by an "F+" catgirl calling me cute when I was passing through Limsa Lominsa for the marketboard. I thanked them in the politest way I could and the very next thing she asked was if I'd like to visit her house. I was actually in disbelief that someone could be this bold, almost as if it's a perfectly normal thing to ask in this game. Which it probably is. Never in all of my years of playing WoW have I seen this level of degeneracy when not explicitly looking for it in Goldshire. Yet in FFXIV it's shoved in your face without consent. Horny adventure plates, open and brazen requests to go someplace private and even simply talking about sex in a "haha so ironic" way in the hubs.

Fuck the people who play this game. Sadly they'd probably enjoy it. No wonder the Devs are playing it so safe and releasing an even more dull expansion lacking in content than EW. Why change a winning formula when the community are happy with their sex mods and dressup?

CS2 matchmaking is trash and there's a lot of cheaters, Valve does nothing about it. It's a downgrade with less maps which is arguably a pity.

Chose a random nation, Bosnia. Got a gold province, Kosovo. Going to conquer Venice soon.
Just pulled off the slickest move on my entrance into Italy. The Papal States had a peasants war, so rebels ended up beginning sieges in all 3 of their forts and each time I took over when they were about to fall. A good player can fight tough wars, a great player can create easy wars.

so I'm not usually into this type of game. but i was intrigued by the depth of the customization. it seems like you really get to worldbuild your own fantasy, create your own lore, gaming as a storymaking machine. you setup the initial conditions, and the game writes your fantasy novel for you.

They should create an HOI4 sim for the Leaders in actual power IRL, and they could open tabs and see how other nations are doing, what their internal faction balances are.

I just can't beat stellaris while playing fanatic xenophobe. It is so much harder than xenophile. Maybe the 2x tradition/tech cost and .5x habitable worlds is making it harder too, IDK, but I like it better that way. I just can't get any subjects. The game comes down to early conquest it seems. Did you come across someone weak you could subjugate in the early game? Congrats, you are guaranteed victory. If you didn't, you will probably lose. I feel cursed. All my neighbors have been hostile, no one wants to do research agreements or defensive pacts, I keep spawning near exterminating hive minds and fallen empires. If I do get a war with someone of comparable strength, by the time I pare them down to conquering size, someone else goes and subjugates them while we're at peace after a war. Federations keep forming and it's incredibly difficult to play by yourself. I'm enjoying the challenge. I'm almost winning this time, I have been fighting a federation basically all game and each time I take a few planets. I got 2nd most pops, but some hivemind next to me is trying to become the crisis and they are OP as fuck so we'll see how this goes .
