Does anyone want to play a world of warcraft private server with other wizards? I'm playing turtle wow with another wizard from here starting a few days ago, it would be fun if a couple more wiz are interested in wasting some time

It has to be on a fresh server. You take all the horde who go to STV anyway at lvl 30 and go fuck up alliance cucks still in their low 20s. Level 30 alliance cucks will not come to defend as they want to level up instead.

Hello everybody, in this thread I would like you to talk about games you kept an eye on but eventually got canned. Not just (potential) masterpieces, just titles that stirred your interest for one reason or another. Here's mine:
1) Timesplitters 4 ( https://www.unseen64.net/2009/03/24/time-splitters-4-x360ps3-cancelled/ ): I really enjoyed the trilogy and feel quite nostalgic about its satire. Nowadays it's harder to take things lightly
2) The Dark Knight ( https://www.unseen64.net/2009/03/31/batman-dark-knight-x360ps3-cancelled/ ): Do you remember the 2008 Batmania? I remember it fondly! I was eagerly waiting to play the game after watching the movie (and eating the pizza: http://channel13metal.blogspot.com/2012/01/dominos-gotham-city-pizza.html )
3) Chrono resurrection ( https://chrono.fandom.com/wiki/Chrono_Resurrection ): This one, a fan project, was supposed to recreate Chrono Trigger in 3D. Square Enix sent a "cease and desist". They could have picked it up à la Valve with Counter Strike, if you ask me.

What is the theory for why Souls games are so popular and have spawned a million ripoffs? I'm not taking a position on whether Souls games are good. But they clearly are way beyond what the typical retard normgroid or games "journalist" can manage. Yet they've been massively successful.

I can't really buy the "it's the customers being stupid plebs" line on why games suck shit nowadays anymore because of the success of Souls style games. I think the major problem is the developers. Game development teams are now made up of lazy talentless tardfags much more frequently than in the golden era of the 90s-early 2000s. They could make good challenging stuff and get rich if they were able to in the present day, but they don't have the ability to make anything but trash, and the market for games is so huge now that trash + good marketing is enough.

This was a Kickstarter MMO looking to revive the genre. Strictly PVP MMO and couldn't even get off it's feet. Now devs are pulling the plug and probably keeping the engine and source code private and we are back to not having any mmos

lol, that is how you make sure your MMO dies within the first week. Like half of MMO players don't even want to PvP others.

Just make another shooterman battle royale game and save yourself the effort of wasting time and money on a MMO.

I think there is just something “magical” about old games, like someone’s great ideas put in to the limitations of a early 2000s game engine that was handcrafted by a passionate nerd. I think limitations and those unique oversights/bugs were really what spawned great games.

These days it’s just like every single game is extremely high fidelity. We have more than enough resources to throw at anything now, there are almost no limitations, things are homogenized, most everything is running in Unreal or Unity engine.

It feels almost like the frontier of gaming is over, all that’s left is businessmen producing calculated slop over and over again, sequels on sequels. Devs these days aren’t building their dreams, they’re just building a paycheck.

What do you think? Was old really better or is it nostalgia

I'm playing RE8. Honestly it's shocking how bad it is compared to RE4. And this isn't some faggy nostalgia or whatever. I barely played and didn't particularly like RE4 when it first released probably because shooters on console are dogshit. I recently played it and found it incredibly good. RE8 is like a lazy talentless on-rails version of RE4.

The funniest part is that GoW1 was already a terrible shit game. Cover shooters were one of the dumbest fucking "innovations" in the history of gaming, literally only exist so console tards can more easily aim with their shitty useless controllers that no shooter should ever have been played on in the first place.

When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

Wow! What a coincidence, I've been playing PS2 games recently too. Recently got an $8 PS3 controller so I can jailbreak my PS3 too, for games that are too slow on my emulator (sly cooper 3 in particular is the only game I have had problems with on emulator.)

I recommend all of these except Klonoa (too easy) and Crimson Tears (haven't tried yet. haven't heard good things about it, mostly got it because the characters are sexy).

I think if you can get yourself a PS3 (don't get a PS3 Slim, they aren't backwards compatible) then you can homebrew it and play any game you like. I don't have one though so I don't know if it's any good.

I find gacha systems to be pretty repugnant but there aren't many games that are so easy to play while doing something else so I'm decently selective to pick ones that are either pretty f2p friendly or are really enjoyable for me

i have nothing against gacha itself, but i have found most of those games to eventually become daily chores, and to have nearly non-existent gameplay that usually can be done automatically.

i have tried hard to like every gacha that i've tried because of the collectible waifus, but i still always end up quitting them.

2013 is the year gaming in the west died. The shitty business practices of lootcrates and paywalls became common place, low effort quirky indie games became popular. And the government/whatever boogieman you fear, finally after nearly 3 decades of constant shitting on and denouncing of video games realized that they can shill propaganda through this medium of entertainment. Every game since has been infected by this, vidya became fully mainstream. You can argue that it became mainstream much earlier but 2013 is when it began to come full circle. Whats even worse is they are pressuring the east to conform to western standards. We have seen the glory days of vidya for sure. Its only more downhill from here.

I think there hasn't been a single good game made after 2020. Period of 2010-2019 still had some nice titles. Minecraft, Terraria, Kerbal Space Program, Alien Isolation etc. But after 2020 I can't think of a single good game. And you know I am kind of glad. I have such a huge backlog of games I don't really need new stuff. I am happy I can focus more on already released games.

It had been moving there in force since the Call of Duty 4 map pack from 2008. 2013 isn't a bad guess, certainly no later though. I would say 2010-2012 was the death. Even FPS became awful then. You saw Bethesda dumbing itself down, Bioware making an ass of itself with the ME3 ending that they retconned in dlc. Obsidian got screwed out of money because of Metacritic and Bethesda, and then basically died. They had to flee to archaic isometric book-games to survive. DLC exploded into crates and microtransactions. Small studies got gobbled up. RTS as a genre died. The specter of "always online" appeared. Basically everything became shit all of a sudden.

I wouldn't really say that. Flight sim titles continue to get new releases. I have played the hitman games, they are good. Gunner HEAT PC!, ready or not, etc.

I think actually "sim-ish" games are undergoing a renaissance right now. I think maybe it's just a matter of taste. Perhaps post what you like and I can recommend something?

I want to share one of the best games I've ever played in my life, not only because of its aesthetics, but also because of its playability and the great content it offers, not only that, apart from being very accessible despite having low graphics (not to say shit) Runescape old school is one of those games that are little known, this game contains millions of stories, of Venezuelans earning a living to be able to eat selling runescape gold, from people who repeat the same action for 3 months in a row to be able to get 99 in a skill, and even people who pay in-game money so they can have a girlfriend. Runescape is huge and you don't stop finding new things every day, it's full of content and besides it's FREE… Up to a certain point since you can buy a membership and play the game 100%, since the free game is limited to certain things and certain sectors, but don't worry you can farm money from the game and buy a bond, which gives you 14 days of free membership, and if you know how to take advantage of them you will never have to spend real money to buy the membership. It's crazy what this game can be and I invite you to play it for free on steam, android, and iso. I don't know what my fellow virgins expect to be able to play this fantastic game

I love OSRS, but every time I stop playing it, I feel like I've escaped. I'm one of those people who has strong childhood nostalia for it (i.e. probably more than half the playerbase) and I'm sure that's the reason why I kept getting drawn back in - not for how good the game is, but to fruitless try and recapture that feeling of childhood wonder and awe.

Does anyone know if the leveling got easier or if I'm just older? I remember being unable to train melee/archery and never even tried to touch magic as a kid, and now
I'm about to his 55 on atk/def/str, 50 on archery, and I'm already 70 magic. When I played as a kid I remember only ever having the attention span for mining/woodcutting.

My fucking prayer is at 46, kid-me would think I was a god with the patience of a saint. Still 24 runecrafting though, I just can't stomach that shit f2p.

Current Runescape has about a 30x increase in the rate at which a player gains XP through conventional means, as compared to Runescape from before 2010. Additionally, there are XP buffs at every corner, materials are cheaper, and the places to train are closer together and offer more automation.

It took me about 14 hours to get from level 59 ATK to 60 back when I got my membership in '07, grinding on skeletons south of the Hill Giant cave, as was the fastest known way to train at my level per Zybez and RuneHQ.

I know exactly what you mean. I remember loving TES IV: Oblivion when I was younger, so I recently re-installed it, added some mods, and started playing. After a couple sessions adding up to about 4 hours or so, I got bored and dropped it. I feel like I would end up doing the same thing if I tried to play OSRS again. I have fond memories of the game, but I know too well that I will never be able to experience it with that same youthful lens from all those years ago.

what's the point of meta charts or tier lists for single player games? just do whatever you like lmao

 No.58529

Because some people like to break games as much as possible and the best way to do that is to collaborate with like minded people. That sometimes involves making charts or tier lists either based on usage percentages or opinions. Just because you don't like to interact with games in a certain way doesn't make other play styles invalid.

Anyone here watch speedruns?
People make fun of them but I think many can be entertaning to watch.
I like the ones where you have to kill at least some enemies to progress instead of bypassing everything, no glitches, and no stupid stuff (like walking backwards or looking down to save time).
I watched one of Dino Crisis 2 recently and it was pretty fun.

The worst part of speedruns is they skip all cutscenes but I understand why it's done

Was checking out some Castlevania: SotN speedruns and the runners turn the music off because it saves a few seconds. The music is one of the best things about the game you idiots! Not to mention the constant back dashing to go faster, you just hear "sh sh sh sh sh" the whole time.

Just play with a magic build and pummel everything from afar. Rock sling used ridiculously strong, it is in Caelid (red area), in the ruins with lots of shroom headed wizards.
