What do you think of grinding in videogames? Do you find it relaxing, or a chore?

When did this board became loaded with zoomer faggots..
You´re the reason why games fucking suck.
Too bad, you can´t ruin what has already been made in the past.
That´s the only good thing.


how old are you?

Hey there wizfrens where should I go to buy a working Sega Dreamcast system. Ebay, Amazon or Facebook marketplace? I plan on selling my Original Xbox and PS2 and go buy me a Sega Dreamcast system after playing it at my friend's house. My friend won't sell me his. So any ideas?

I knew some kids who had one. It was okay, I liked it more than the PS2 but the Gamecube and Xbox were more fun.


Why the fuck didn't you just emulate? There's so many neat enhancements now days with the games that there's literally no point in getting a Dreamcast with a pack of CDRs to burn games that are only going to fuck up because of the compressed data vs full emulation and not having to give scalpers all of your money that you could save for something better.

Interesting someone upped this thread. I've downloaded every single Dreamcast title ever released including JP ones and I'm currently exploring its game library. So far, to be brutally honest, I haven't found anything that interesting yet, but I've only just begun, we'll see how it goes. I've played about 8 hours of Evolution 2 and was unimpressed with it. Wrote a review of my experience here >>59642.

I've also played EGG some time ago and that game is really good. Unfortunately several threads on the archive are broken and you can't access my original post anymore but I did save my review of that one in an anon blog I used to save my game reviews, you can read it here; https://gameboy2017.wordpress.com/2019/08/08/206/. Definitely a game I recommend if you want to play some dreamcast stuff.

I've also played both Crazy Taxi titles for this console and they're really fun. I didn't write reviews on those because they're fairly popular titles even today and I don't think I have much to say about it. It's a very arcadey game and it works best if you play 30 min at a time, otherwise it might get a little bit repetitive. It's a very fun game though with a lot of replayability.

I've played a few hours of Radirgy, an interesting looking shmup with bullet hell bosses. I did enjoy it for its visuals and odd story (for a shmup anyways) but overall it's a shmup experience you can get with a lot of other games, from the Dreamcast itself and other consoles and PC. Nothing really stands out other than how it looks. Visually it's very unique and worth a shot because of that. I don't think people who really like and play lots of shmups will be impressed with it though. Its gameplay is really standard.

A game that did stand out to me is Rez, but I've only played a little of it at the time of this writing. It's a weird rail shooter where you can shoot enemies and they make a beat you can synchronize with the music. It felt a little gimmicky but I can't remember a game quite like it, especially from that era. I guess that makes it a unique gaming experience. I'll try to complete it sometime soon, I checked a video on it and it's a fairly short game.

Finally I’ve played a little bit of Bangai-O, a game I was looking for since I’m an admirer Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


If you like JRPGs, Skies of Arcadia is p. good.

Forgot to say I've also played Rainbow Cotton and I don't know what it is with some of the Cotton games but a couple of them are completely broken. I'm a fan of the Cotton series but this one is virtually unplayable. It's hard to believe they had a chance to make a Cotton game for the Dreamcast and went to use the broken view of Panorama Cotton. Holy shit. Also hard to believe nobody noticed any problems during the production of this title. Look at this. Cotton completely covers your view! You can't see what you're shooting at, you can't see what's in front of you, can't aim, the notion of distance is really odd because you can't really tell how close you're to objects and even if you could, Cotton it so damn huge it's hard to navigate around anything anyways.

I don't get it how they would make the same mistake after the fiasco that was Panorama Cotton. What a pity.

Thanks, it's on my list, I'll try it eventually.


I'm surprised at how good browser games have gotten. they look better than lower end PC games these days.

For years I just played basic old games like Warfare 1917 and Hex Empire.

Some cools one I found was hexanaut.io. It combines Slitherio snake games with building a hex empire.

The graphics on browser FPS games are really good.

ev.io is like a Halo clone, its nice you can play a team match against bots. humans are just too damn good at fps for me.



woah it looks just as good as COD's Warzone, except its a Wiz-zone where all the operators are wearing wizhats, and male virgins who have never had sex


i am astounded this shit still exists


Having "Wiz" in the url is a cheatcode for long site life

Does anybody want to play Minecraft?
You can make a free server with Oracle cloud's free tier, but i already blew my account on a server for my little brother and his classmates.
Picrel is my 2020 singleplayer world


Which version?
>try "Thaumium Rogue" if you still like 1.7.10


1.19 maybe or one of the newer versions, almost anything is fine for me.
I rarely play modded Minecraft but if I do i play with my IC2/BC modpack


I tried 1.16.5 recently, with a fine mod called Create.

The trailer speaks loud enough about it as a peak mod


I've yet to try it but I saw the trailer when it released and was blown away, reminds me of Factorio just slightly less frustrating and spaghetti inducing


I still play 1.11/12, I really dont like all of the new weird stuff that got added after notch got booted.
1.9 was the last truly great update, none of the new mobs fit minecraft, the underground city is poorly executed, the new nether sucks and destroyed the atmosphere completely.
They are trying to turn minecraft into something which it wasnt meant to be, they should limit the the experimental shit to minecraft dungeons

Almost every single game that I played in 2023 was a game made in Japan. Mainly JRPGs. Now I can't barely play western games, which I found dull and ugly.

when Japan became the best game developer?

…why even bother asking what to play then, or browse this board


I like video games.


>Pretends to be smart and call others names
>Thinks that SMT and Persona are the same thing
>Thinks that interacting with characters in an RPG is bad thing

You tried.


Lots of the last games i have played are western games, dishonored, tomb raider, morrowind, lil gator. i really dont like anime or anime tropes anymore, but soon enough i will be playing resident evil


Literally THAT meme.

Playing Cataclysm:DDA once again, waiting to see new features from when I last played. Using a square font in my terminal, will probably replace it because uppercase vs lowercase is hard to tell apart.
I'm roleplaying as an old man.

Today in cataclysm:dda…
While looting a campground (no zombies here) I went into a tent to take some things and a robin happened to be inside the tent. I shut the tent's flap and beat it to death with a lug wrench.


good job wiz


I'll try out Bright Nights tomorrow and tell you.
I definitely recommend the experimental build of DDA though, rather than the stable release. It's not hard to compile yourself. I'll explain the process tomorrow also.

In my current run I managed to clear out all the zombies in this town on day 1, simple home mechanic start. I did it with: a fire axe, very good melee weapon you can find in fire lookout towers; 17 steak knives I carried around and threw at zombies to weaken them before hitting them with the axe; a glock I found, had quite a few bullets. I have only 4 bullets left afterwards. My char walked around playing a harmonica to get the zombies to come to him, and afterwards I played it walking by houses so my char would hear any zombies inside.

Right now (not during these screenshots) I have a police robo in my town trying to arrest and tase me, ever ever since I broke into a museum and it set off alarms.

https://cataclysmdda.org/experimental/ OK apparently you don't need to compile it yourself. In fact, the new stable version just released so you may as well play that. https://cataclysmdda.org/releases/

Also I played Bright Nights and: it has less features. Apparently it has less of a realistic focus. Not worth playing IMO.

Can we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.

This thread is a simple thread that can be about Bloodborne, Dark Souls I,II or III, or even Dark Souls. It can be about any element, the lore or enemies, or anything. Also, any action RPG game recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I see you still have your wits about you. Will you cough up 30 souls? or go through PPU-compile hell? These are the choices left for the living, hah hah hah…


look up dark souls on fitgirl


nice witch pic, i saved it.


100% Dark Souls I
I dropped Dark Souls II shortly after getting the fourth great soul. The game is ugly and boring, the combat isn't satisfying and everything feels slightly off.
Next up is Dark Souls III


I also didn't like DSII, maybe it's because it was developed by a different team. DS3 feels more like the first game, but they probably shoved too many references in there. Still, Demon's Souls is probably the closest to Dark Souls if you want something similar

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.

which one you talking about? i played the first one recently, and that's it so far, but i dont get what you're talking about.


Throughout the series, they constantly push this idea that Reapers slowly indoctrinate anyone in contact with them. Some become babbling lunatics while others, like Saren, are still given a large degree of autonomy because they can better aid the Reapers that way. From what I recall, they never formally explain why Shepard is immune. That largely caused fans to speculate about the trippy endings of the third game and ironically begin to believe that the Renegade ending was the true one because it's the only ending where the Reapers are annihilated, while the other two are about coexisting with the Reapers.
Of course, it was fans just seeing more to the story than there truly was. It wouldn't necessarily have been a shocking twist, but it certainly would've added a lot to the plot that Shepard was being controlled and progressively hallucinating more and more that he/she was successfully saving the galaxy (while actually accomplishing the direct opposite and doing exactly what the Reapers wanted him/her to do).
The endings kinda suck without utilizing that important plot point, but I guess it's less of a letdown if you treat the entire third game as the climax to the series. They tried to append the disappointment with a shittier slideshow than what you'd find on Fallout (which I think are quite good because they vary wildly and thoroughly explore what happens to all the different factions after the game is completed, which is not how it went with Mass Effect 3's newer endings).


I don't know, I just think it would've been poetic that Shepard fights so strongly against the same threat that Saren succumbed to, then potentially also succumbs to that same force. I think it would make a lot of sense, considering that the impetus for Shepard's rise into the Spectres was largely in response to Saren's treasonous actions. Time is a flat circle and all that.


maybe it's those artifact things he interacted with in the first. saren also interacted with them and they both are able to interact with reapers somewhat

need to play more but im still butthurt about mass effect 2 being a lame cover shooter instead fo the wacky rpg shooter like the first


More of a meta-philosophical look at why we play games and what it means.

Look at those two beauties, with a brand new case. The XP looks awesome in that white case.

Ready to rock n´roll.

I switched the monitor back again to the asus monitor, since i´ll have to change the resolution in most games that have 1280x960p since the HP Omen doesn´t support that resolution, and i get an error in return. ( NFS Carbon for ex. )

What the HP Omen has is 1280x800p which is different, the asus monitor doesn´t have that one.

If i were to put those games in 1280x720p, then everything will be compatible when switching back.

Both monitors support 1280x720p.

That´s about it.

The other case is where i keep my Win10, which is 100% custom and offline. ( a pirate bay station basically )

They can make more than enough money just keeping the prices at 5-10x forever because storing small boxes sitting on a pallet isn't hard or expensive. Crypto niggers and scalpers will keep buying all available cards at any price anyway. Meanwhile I see regular people fighting over trash, paying premium for second hand mid tier hardware that's two or three generations old, that was abused to hell by miners and is likely to fail shortly, no refunds. I don't see a way out of this when a shitty new 1650 costs more than a 980ti did back when I bought it at launch.
It's not even about money at this point. Nothing is about money anymore. Filthy proles like me who make close to minimum wage are supposed to be kept not only poor but completely miserable too. Unworthy plebeians will never again be allowed to have access to easily entered hobbies where any of us could save up for top quality gear and be content with his setup for years. Distractions from the horror of modern commoner's life are forbidden and that's the way it's supposed to stay. The virus panic is never going away, the elites and middle class want to keep us locked up, terrorized and miserable.


>They can make more than enough money just keeping the prices at 5-10x forever
You seem not to realize that retailers have to pay 5-10x more as well to obtain those cards.
The margense for electronics aren't anywhere near as good as you seem to think they are at the retail level.
> storing small boxes sitting on a pallet isn't hard or expensive
Yes it is. I can tell you know literally nothing about inventory of a even semi active location. There is no space to just indefinably store things to speculate on price at a retail location. A store isn't a warehouse, working around something not in rotation is actually quite difficult when the backroom fills up, and space is at a premium.

>Crypto niggers and scalpers will keep buying all available cards at any price anyway

This is also dead wrong.
Their intrest is directly proportionate to whatever the crypto market does. When it is down they are infamous for abandoning ship, to the point that it's part of the reason they keep getting kicked out of countries and counties.
They also don't demand just any and all cards avalable at any price. That is retarded and you are exaggerating.

Rest of your post is foolish doom and gloom with no relation to reality.


> second hand mid tier hardware that's two or three generations old, that was abused to hell by miners and is likely to fail shortly, no refunds.
most miners underclock and undervolt and are obsessed with low temps and cooling
most gamers overclock and run their shit hot in horribly ventilated cases and there are tons of temp fluctuations


fuck, good thing i don't live in the US
