Can we have a thread where we suggest each other comfy games?

I personally consider comfy a game that doesn't require huge amount of exploration and has some sort of routine included. Like a set of locations or characters you'll visit every now and then on a regular basis. Like a Night in the Wood or even Fortune-499.

Super Stickman Golf. It's not available on Google Play anymore, you will have to download .apk from apkmirror or similiar site. Simple 2D game where you traverse varied environments to finish the course. Can be challenging at times though.

My guess is that the dev studio removed it themselves to make room for later versions of the game,because as of now only SSG3 is available on GP, it's strange.
I tried playing SSG2 these last few days and didn't like it. They added tons of shit: ball-repelling magnets, stick walls, moving obstacles, even portals. On paper it may sound fun but it wasn't for me. But i played Ssg1 without even using any power-ups.
I know im rambling like an idiot, in broken english, about damn smartphone game, but i thought i wont be able to enjoy video games anymore, to the point of abandoning the medium for the last few years.

I'm trying to get good at this. Played as a kid a lot and felt like trying my hand again. Still suck of course but the animation and music is so endearing to me I don't even care.

What about you wiz? What are you playing? Does it suck so bad you'll be posting on the dropped games soon?

Been playing SAMP recently
from an onlooker's perspective it's probably a load of mundane boring shit, and probably, I'm not really sure why I much enjoy being a virtual baggage collector or truck driver, but I'm having fun, just get some nice tunes, and it's a good time, I guess it's the video game equivalent of soap opera

G2A is definitely shady, but exploiting grey market region pricing rather than stolen cards. It's unlikely you'd get any bans for purchasing there but I personally wouldn't, just pirate at that point. More or less any store not listed on isthereanydeal is up to something dodgy.

(in my opinion) one of the most timeless games and probably the only good thing besides L4D valve has released. it genuinely makes me sad to see valve neglect it with every update getting smaller and fewer between.

I'm sure they've made a ton of fucking money off of it, but Valve have dug themselves into such a hole with all of their cosmetic economy bullshit. How could you even possibly make a TF3, Dota 3, or CS:GO 2 at this point, which the obscene amounts of money people have pumped into cosmetics?

People have been saying that for years already. The truth is Valve doesn't need to make any more games because they are taxing the entire PC gaming industry 30%…

If they wanted to update tf2s engine they would just update it like they did with dota 2, there’s no reason they would need a new title. Valve simply abandoned the game and it’ll keep slowly losing players and dying as it is.

>The recent unusual hat glitch doesn't seem like a random fuckup

I was thinking this too.
Valve gets a fixed cut of every transaction, not a percentage. If the "hat market" calms down as a result of everybody having nearly everything they want due to the sheer volume of items in circulation, Valve will no longer make money off of trades because trades won't be happening. So forcing the hand of everyone who wanted something way beyond their individual reach by causing the prices to drop would bring about a resurgence in trades, meaning a quick cash boost for Valve. CS:GO is next.

Valve was making annual $6,000,000,000.00 US off of trade taxes ALONE at one point. If they're no longer making games and everything they're otherwise involved in is "free", then naturally they'd need a blast of cash every now and then, especially if they're going to be doing more research in to the pricey hardware market.

I don't think TF3 can roll out though.
>Valve
>3
This isn't just a PC gamer joke, it's fact. All of Valve's creative energy have moved on or left the industry all together. There's no innovation to be found at Valve and they've stagnated for too long while other companies like Epic Games have broken new boundaries which can't be topped with today's hardware. Valve got so caught up in the ecstasy of the freemium market that now they have no way of escaping that slippery slope. Expectations of them being so high from fanboys doesn't help either.

I honestly doubt Valve will ever release a new first-person shooter, whether it's HL, TF, L4D, CS, or Portal.

Any runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?

Just curious what others think of the game, or what you're up to. I've been working on an account thats 2.1k total levels now and the game is a lil stale, I've never really dabbled in bossing or pvp and I'm mainly just an afker and skiller. Considering making an ironman or something

I left OSRS, I think? Or Runescape 3 about 10 years ago? I'm interested in OSRS, but I, like >>42467 would feel like I'm wasting my life, even at one hour a day. Still, I'm wasting my life now.

>"I have no future, no education, and I can't even leave my house, why am I wasting my time hoarding virtual crap in this pointless game", I need something a bit more engaging to suppress these feelings, for me I'd rather pace around in circles than play runescape.


Is pretty much how I feel to a T. I have more concerns though. It just doesn't feel "right" to play a game where you can literally get 99 everything. If you max everything, or have a lot of players maxing everything, a lot of items you can make are pretty useless. It's been 10 years, but I do remember leaving when there was a grand exchange, and playing before it. I do like the grand exchange, but I can only imagine thousands of players making and selling things like rune bars, weapons, armor, etc. and the rune armor just being a thing everyone had. You'll not even need to find a player with a good enough skill level to make you armor since you can just go to the G.E. and get it for a pretty flat price. I know there's manipulation of prices, but rune armor and weapons are so plentiful, so why aren't they cheaper? It was like, 30k IIRC for some rune, but it's not like many people can't craft it, mine it, etc. I do want to play, but if I did, I would only limit myself to an hour and just never talk to anyone. I might just either make everything from scratch or just use the G.E. to make a profit. Both are fun. I want to make weapons, armor, and arrows.

If I do join the wizclan by starting to play, which is doubtful, I'll sell weapons and armor for cheaper to clanmates. I probably won't be a member either, so members basically will have no use for me. IIRC, there was armor you couldn't craft, so any smithing seems absolutely useless for higher levels. Most skills feel impractical other than for making money anyways.

 No.46673

>>46646
The reason why rune items remain expensive despite the immense supply is that their price is tied to their alch value. Also as you said jagex can artificially fix item prices in the GE.

Clam-shell design and size is closer to a 3DS XL.

To OP, you can get something with similar performance for far less with a windows tablet, then get the accessories you want (keyboard, proper mouse for gaming, controller, etc.). GPD stuff is just too overpriced for the performance you get and a tablet is almost as portable with similar power and lower cost.

It's that time again.

I'm conflicted on buying another 30 days or not on this game. Every time I do (already it tricked me 2 times) I regret it 5 days later and uninstall it but I the urge of playing it always rise again after some time the subscription is over.

It's starting to feel like a vicious cycle I'll struggle to come out from.

I already tried all kinds of private servers: Vanilla, TBC, WoTLK, Cataclysm, MoP, WoD, Legend but the retail has something that these private servers don't have (besides the obvious: the playerbase).

I even tried some other games: Overwatch, Path of Exile, FFXIV, GW2, TESO, Aion, battle royals and several other shooters but I can't stick around them too much. The only one I managed to was GW2 some years ago and most recently Overwatch but even than I can't stand them more than 2 hours a day.

I feel like I'm going to relapse again and buy another game time just to enjoy it a couple of day and then uninstall the whole thing again with the addition to wasting another 14 bucks.

I'm not broke, I can afford a monthly fee but I feel guilty because I fee like I'm not really exploiting to the fullest that payment I made if I just barely stay on the game a week.

What other thing I can do to avoid temptations?

I bought a month sub last month after quitting in 2014. I regretted it after buying since I do not like how unproductive the game makes me and the battle.net website kept encountering "issues" after I tried to refund my purchase in that same day. I uninstalled after a week and 5 days later I reinstalled to test my self discipline in the face of a temptation. In the end I was able to properly put an end to it. Also playing again after all those years made me realize how pointless most of the game is. Grind->grind->grind for <2%drops and play with arrogant shit heads who plague the majority of the player base.

>>42210
I understand how you feel. I used to tank on all my characters that are able to tank and that one month I resubbed reminded me why this game is garbage. Mostly DPS players who in general are assholes who assume that just because we are playing a game we have to waste over half an hour wiping on trash because some inconsiderate DPS moron can't help but run through skipped trash and drag it to the rest of the group.

I've started to feel like playing games are a choir now for the past 2 or 3 years. Downloaded Day of Defeat: Source again to play a little but I know I'll eventually get tired of it. After that, I'll enter another cycle of finding a videogame that fills the void inside of me that reminds me that I'm that my hobbies I've enjoyed as a kid and a young teenager have passed. I think what I'm trying to say is how to do you deal with this situation and is it really possible to find other hobbies if you have the attention span of a gerbil.
Wasnt sure if I should have posted here on this board but if mods want to move it to the other board it's fine.

Why would you even want to enjoy gaming? Video Games had caused me to sit on my chair for hours without rest and had destroyed my mind.

You just have to find that game that re-ignites the spark. Most modern games have more in common with movies and as a result don't have satisfying gameplay, which can result in you thinking you don't like video games anymore when that is not the case. I had a similar problem but recently found One Finger Death Punch and Downwell to be absurdly fun. I can play both for hours and hours and not even realize it. Controls are simple and easy to understand, no story or opening cinematic to slow things down, very pick up and play. Keep searching and don't bother with AAA games anymore, they're a lost cause.

Downwell is great, I recommend you play Nuclear Throne. Its similar to downwell but more complicated, still pretty simple compared to most rogue lites though.
