Anyone else playing Evil Dead: The game? I'm a fan of the movies and was excited about the game because it seem to pay proper homage the them. Been playing it since release and having a lot of fun with it, other than the typical drama surrounding the balance changes to assymetrical multiplayer games.

What to consider when choosing a gaming laptop? I've looked around some guides and have a vague idea, but I'd like to get some thoughts from experienced gamers. There's so much to choose from. I've been wageslaving for two years to save up for this and I really don't want to mess up. My budget is about 1500 usd, maybe a little more.

I'm looking for the best price-to-performance ratio. I don't want to pay for frills, I just want my games to run. I also don't play FPS, mostly strategy games, if that matters. I also don't stream or anything like that. Portability doesn't matter.

Is there a big difference between laptop and desktop? Does a laptop cost much more than a desktop of similar performance? I can't buy desktop because I have nowhere to put it.

Very thankful for any advice.

i only played blue, i have no idea there is a yellow. later i played sapphire. all the pokemon in between blue and sapphire seem weird to me. apparently yellow is like blue so of course i will say yellow is best

Crystal, gen 2 is the best gen.
>>57543
Yellow is red/blue with some changes to make it similar to the anime, like forcing you to start with pikachu and not being to release it/evolve it, changes to gym leaders' teams so it matches those of the show, changing cops and nurses to Joys and Jennies and so on. I personally prefer the vanilla versions, Pikachu fucking sucks and I think they were more balanced

I've played Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow for the first generation and Gold, Silver, and Crystal for the second generation. I've come back to the second generation more because I like the aesthetics. I think I may have actually beaten Crystal, but not Yellow. I can't remember. I just remember beating Red after playing it in 2015. I can't remember much of each game though. I will tell you that my favorite romhack is called Crystal Clear. You can get every single Pokemon in the game including the starters in the wild. That game's dope.

Dead Rising 2 introduces this medicine called Zombrex. Dead Rising loves conspiracy theories in general. This relationship with the Zombrex is very important. Chuck Greene' daughter is bitten by her mother and needs a dosage of Zombrex every 8 hours to prevent her from being a zombie. Already we know zombies are metaphors for capitalism or metaphors for superstition;they are a primal fear of our realization that we live in a predator vs prey based world and our social relations are built entirely off these fundamentals. When the "infection" spreads to a point of mass zombie outbreak, it really is a meta commentary on humanity's perpetual downfall. Nietzche preaches an idea of nihilism that his view in the world is the view of subsequent generations. You see a true "monster" or icon of fear is both a realized state of predator/prey. This further extends into memetics and conceptual "willpower" what boils down to is that a trauma induced by a predator forces a prey into a emotional unstable state where unless they get constant medication (bandaid fixes) they can't resume a comfortable life. This drives our thinking into a fear/reward system where every reward is rejected simply on the basis that it perpetuates a cycle you want to escape, that's why T.K. after receiving the first dose freaks out. The cyclical nature is even reflected on the political scale, where protestors protest against cruelty of zombies, where that the government is providing the bandaid under the corpses of thousands of dead zombies. We can essentially flip this conversation into saying, we have cultivated a society that has underwent so much genetic trauma that we are living in a zombie epidemic filled with psychopaths. These psychopaths are not to assimilar to MkUltra victims. MkUltra was actually a entire success, brainwashing is viewable and when the scientists managed to reduce patients to a child like state of gurgling, what they didn't know was that they were simply mimicking their archon elders. While this may have seen like a completely off the wall tangent notice how it's applied in other media this looping of conspiracies, teletubbies instills the archons with the establishment of the fifth teletubby and the Sun God Noonoo(a child) which is the idealized mental state of a God. When Chuck Greene comments that T.K. is weaker than Katey after the injection this was a multi faceted comment because both T.K. and Katey were essentially subjugated into willingly following hypnosisPost too long.

I never played vanilla DR2 but I played the shit out of Off The Record, the expansion where Chuck is replaced with Frank. It frees you from being a cuck looking for zombrex for your child succubus. Great game, lots of fun. DR3 had none of the charm of the previous games.

Any of the Donkey Kong games worth playing? I always heard the SNES and newer games are really good, but DK64 is quite polarizing.

DKC was a solid platformer, but had issues which I attribute to going from 3d animation to 2d loops. Not unlike Mortal Kombat, it felt clunky at times like you're waiting for a loop to complete before doing the next thing. It had one of the better SNES soundtracks and did a good job setting the mood for the game. It's definitely worth one play through. I was probably playing Tekken and Ridge Racer when DKC 2 hit.

Played all three of them as a kid, here are my personal opinions:

1 is the one I played the least, mainly because of how different it felt to the snes counterpart which I didn't expect & like back then. Also since it's the first time they tried porting DKC to GB it often seemed borderline-broken to me. Wouldn't recommend.

2 was a much better port and I played the shit out of it, mainly because dkc2 on snes is still one of my favorite games to this day. Still does a few things different than the snes version but works much better all-around.

3 is another good port/spin-off, but also repeats many things that made dkc3 inferior to dkc2, so I'd recommend it depending on if you liked/disliked that, too.

I also just recently watched a youtube video by some guy reviewing all 3 parts of it and agreed with a lot of what was said, so check it out if you are interested in another opinion:

Has anyone heard about these? What do you think about them? Personally I don't really get it. It has something to do with blockchain but I don't understand where the money is coming from in the first place or why they would let you earn it by playing video games but apparently it's a thing that exists. Maybe it's just people are all putting money into the game from various things and then it becomes like an actual in-game economy with "real" "currency" and you only get paid if you are any good. Could be an interesting way for wizzies to get money since we can dedicate more time to grinding and getting gud.

Pic related is from https://www.illuvium.io/

Looks like some sort of pokemon clone but the pokemons are all NFTs and you can earn ethereum or something.

> I don't understand where the money is coming from in the first place
GPU and CPU power s used to generate the hashes which construct these altcoins. Modern games are given full reign over either so they can mine while you play, at the expense of performance and hardware longevity.

Some games, software, and viruses do this without even telling the user, it's just that these guys are marketing it and have implemented the currency as a gameplay mechanic.

not worth it at all, with games like runescape or world of warcraft you can make way more money farming gold

 No.57424

im fine with play to earn games. hint: most games can be play to earn, the developers just ban everyone for doing it. but still people have been earning a living playing runescape or wow or guild wars and farming gold… for a long ass time. the only difference now is that they spin up a new cryptocoin (GameCoin) or an nft (CharacterToken)… and to play the game you need to buy a CharacterToken… and the GameCoins you earn are garbage that everyone dumps onto the market until it becomes worthless and you cant even recoup the initial costs of your CharacterToken because the whole thing is literally just speculation and schemes shilled by shady people on twitter, not a real videogame

Wish there was a game with a decent online experience that wasn't so boring. Had someone I was playing blazblue with but he stopped and now I'm stuck playing strive again because I don't want to deal with discord or the garbage lobbies and it's so hard to enjoy now. Have trouble finding games still anyway when half the playerbase dodges happy chaos.

Sucks that one of the only genres that doesn't involve playing with teammates almost requires the most socializing.

This are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.

Does anyone else feel like this?

Please refrain from political shitposting about Gamergate esque indie dev drama, that's not what this is for.

found out about starcraft retribution made by wizardworks software, guess they would sell bootleg copies with other mod teams and some of those guys worked on other shovelware for classic blizzard games and even duke nukem.

I played through 4 free indie games today that you can get off Steam. I'd say all 4 had their merits. I'll list them below.

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution:

This game was really nice to play. It felt like a real time strategy game, and it was a nice change of pace. You can choose your time periods and what you want to do in each. I enjoyed this game, and it's a good pick for anyone looking for a change of pace.

Broken Sword:

This game is a point and click adventure game, and I enjoyed it. I really liked the story, and the puzzles were well thought out. I don't think I'm going to pick up the other two games in the series, but this one was really fun to play.

The Room:

I played through this game on the iPhone, and I really liked it. The story was well thought out, and it had a good ending. I think I'll try to pick up the other two games in the series.

Firaxis' Sid Meier's Pirates:

I played through the first two levels, and I really enjoyed this game. It was a nice change of pace from the other two games on my list. It's a real time strategy game, but I think it'll be more of a distraction than a real time strategy game. I really enjoyed this game, and it was a good pick for anyone looking for a change of pace.

So those are my picks for today. I think they're all pretty good games, and I'd say that they're all worth your time.

I've also been thinking about the stuff that I'm going to do for my own game. I've been looking at the stuff that I've done for Firaxis' Civilization Revolution, and I think I'd like to do something similar for my game. I'm not sure what, but I think I'll have something in mind soon.
