Just finished Majora's Mask for N64. It's really good once you get used to the timer, and honestly once you slow it down you shouldn't run out of time unless you're pretty bad (I am, so I did once in the last dungeon). There is a lot of repetition though, so I see why this game is so dividing among zelda fans, I didn't mind it for the most part, but I usually don't mind grinding and stuff like that.
What did bother me is that after I busted my ass getting all masks to get the Fierce Deity, turns out I can only use it on bosses, I hoped to go around turned into the big guy fucking shit up after I finished the game but I can't, so what's the point? I mean yeah, it makes the final boss trivial but still, it's not like it was very hard to begin with.

Finished Witcher 2, I think I liked it less than the first game. Graphics and voice acting were very nice but the switch to real time combat was awkward and the maps are so confusing to navigate

Seemed interesting at first, but was pretty much utterly ruined for me right off the bat due to the lack of a tutorial or even just basic tooltips on what all the various parts actually do. The whole, "experiment and figure it out yourself", angle the developers opted for was a pretty nonsensical and bullshit approach to take for this sort of thing. at least in my opinion anyway. Since when did depriving players of proper tutorials/explanations on how everything works make for a more engaging experience? Maybe some people get off on aimlessly feeling around the in the dark, but I'm definitely not one of them. For someone like me, I'm just left clueless/frustrated and can find no desire to go through the forced trial and error due to a lack of what should be otherwise necessary, bedrock information.

Well, I was gonna drop this right away, but instead I just downloaded a bunch of random creations that others had put together from the Steam Workshop and managed to complete all the missions in the campaign just from doing that. Funnily enough, I actually derived far more enjoyment from going that route versus grappling with the exceedingly poor UI and fucking around aimlessly trying to make something myself without any clue as to how I could actually use the various parts the game provides you with. Which, as I said, it doesn't bother to explain what 95% of these parts even do, not even at a bare minimum level. Despite me never really diving into the creation tools, something about said tools leaves something to be desired. Even fucking around with some of the most popular creations usually resulted in them not even working as they should half the time. I tried one particular creation based off that giant robot from Pacific Rim and it looked pretty cool, but ended up being rather anticlimactic after I tried to take just one step before it simply fell over and exploded. It's one thing to build these contraptions, but actually trying to bind halfway fluid movement/controls to them is pretty much impossible, thereby making most of what you can build unwieldy and essentially useless.

Largely speaking, despite it now being fully released at this point, it still feels like a game that's in early access. I was hoping for it to be a neat little puzzle game with a creation gimmick, but the lack of a tutorial, even just a basic tutorial, really killed the experience for me, beyond just what I could salvage checking out what others had made Post too long.

In reality, Isabelle would be the first one to die. There's no way she could handle those weapons or do anything like Doomguy could. I remember seeing an animation where Isabelle was texting Doomguy to kill someone, calling them annoying, saying she would do it but her hands were tied with other things. The talk was disgusting made them sound like sociopaths killing an innocent person. If she tried, she would be killed easily. All bark, no bite.

I can't believe I'm the only person here who is too passive to play video games and just watches playthroughs of them on Youtube. Very relaxing to put on a longplay and experience the game as a movie or something. Strictly no-commentary playthroughs, please. I hate normals who think that they have to comment and talk about unrelated stuff while playing.
I'll start with an obscure game, Juggernaut for ps1. Looks really good for its time and has an LSD-feeling to it, probably one of the weirdest games I ever watched/played. It is about a guy who is sent into his gf's soul to rescue her from a demon but he has to explore multiple microcosms while there, all microcosms have their own little stories, they don't really have anything in common besides fighting the evil force that is always present.

I know, since I'm actually one of them. Based on the most recent finished thread, it actually feels like I've been the only one who's been posting in it for the past few months. What mega posts are you referring to, by the way? Almost all the major walls of text within the last last few months in that thread have been mine. Also, if you check out this >>47141 thread, almost all the wizzies who replied confirmed that they barely play or finish any games at all, which just reinforces my point that not many wizzies tend to be very active gamers, or even semi-regular gamers, and are just barely holding onto the hobby, or have just found themselves with only a passing interest in it.

>>49492

That's fair. It still seems like there's really only a handful of us on wizchan who bother to post, as opposed to the vast majority of other wizzies who have a mostly diminished or even contemptuous stance on gaming, which, like I said, just makes me sometimes feel kind of alone and depressed.

Thoughts on recording gameplay and uploading it to Youtube? I've been doing this recently and it's a lot of fun. It makes things feel more official and it makes you actually pay attention. All of my videos have 0 views and I don't even tag them correctly, but something about making it public in some way increases my focus and overall makes me happy. Just played through Half-Life, a game I've been meaning to play through for 10 years now.

Please tell me i'm not the only idiot on wizchan that rages/scream at video game characters or even react physically (digged a hole in my old desk with my fist). I can feel it in my guts when the rage builds up and explodes, i feel pathetic afterwards but deep down i can't say to myself "it's just a game" and may feel devastated for days following some frustrating defeat. Of course it heavilly depends on the game type, real time strategy games being the absolute worst.

An AMD k6 computer, with 64MB of RAM and a geforce 2 gpu, about 20 years ago. Had Windows Millenium, what a piece of crap that OS was.

I still have the games around somewhere, the tower is in a pile of junk on my backyard, I still use the speakers, mouse and keyboard work but newer computers don't have the adapters.
>Did you have subscriptions to related magazines?
Just videogame magazines, which I mostly couldn't run because the computer was already too old in 2001 or 2002, but I loved them. Back then video game journalists weren't insufferable idiots, or at least I didn't knew if they were.

I grew up without one but in 2007 my first computer was a windows 98 desktop with crt and such that some librarian gave me for free. I don't have it anymore but I ran various emulators on it and dictionaries (was trying to learn Japanese so I could play Wonderswan games on it) and an AI chatterbox program called billy, if I recall. I also had a space simulator called… I forgot. Nor can I find it with a search query in a small amount of time. You could add the Event Horizon circling around the earth and such, that I recall. There were family computers off and on around me but when there were it was too open for me to concentrate with a bunch of people being behind me. I can't use a computer around other people. I can't concentrate. So I waited until I was an adult to have a computer of my own to use and that was the 07 time period. I brought back software to it using cd-roms and installed a driver or two for it so it could use usb drives then I used a hacked psp, never had a smartphone like kids today, to bring data back and forth on it's memory stick. I also remember installing a directx for emus to work. The hacked phat psp I could save flv files with, used to watch anime and movies on yout*be with it (back then it worked differently), and I'd save things permanently on the win 98 at home. Back then there were lots of free hotpots, but no longer. To clarify, back then psp's didn't use the Internet to watch videos but had the hardware capability. So I used those two things for my first access. I first visited an imageboard site using the psp in fact. Really it wasn't the windows 98 so much as a windows 98 computer PLUS the phat psp I had (of which was technically the second psp I bought because the first I bought was broken and even the win 98 computer at first was broken until the librarian gave me another, but that's neither here nor there and no one cares…). But I was 18 in 2007, and gave away the computer at probably 2010 or maybe 2011 because I had an xp by then and also gave away the psp I was using as a pda and emulator device and all. That xp is long dead too. Now here I am on windows 7 forever because Linux is trash, when not connected to a network, to this day I don't always have access. I'm not learning how to install from tar, fuck the dependencies. I hate you.

My first games were Jstorm and a top-down shmup whose name I've forgotten. I wish I remembered the name because I would love to play it again.

>What was your family's first home computer?
My dad built a PC on 2001-2002 with a shitty celeron CPU and very low RAM/HDD and Win XP,but it was great because at that time literally no one had computer and internet connection in my country except internet cafes,I'm sure I was the first one of my street to have a PC with internet connection,my extended family wanted to come to my house because we had a PC and internet.

>Do you still possess any of the hardware or software?

Yes I still have lots of CD's somewhere,they were mostly edutainment games,but were very good actually and learned a lot from them


>Did you have subscriptions to related magazines?

I had a suscription to a local Nintendo magazine called "Club Nintendo" I never had a console until the DS Lite in 2006 but still liked to read the articles.

I asume you're latin American. I really liked reading those magazines and just like you never had a console until years later. I did get to play most of the games I thought looked interesting, thanks to emulation, most of them turned out to be not as good as the magazines would have you believe, of course. It was an official magazine so any objectivity was out of question.

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 cant really recommend anything right now. Unfortunately the changes between one years model and the next can be dramatic enough that one year could be garbage and the next excellent. Basically look for the specs you want and then look for stuff in your price range and shop around because there are deals.

After you get an idea of what you want its best to read a ton of reviews. The biggest concerns you have are lots of complaints of something running too hot for too long. And any big hardware failures. Since the RTX architecture is not new anymore things should be a bit more streamlined in NIVIDA based systems at least.

Also new laptops means the previous models may go on sale but they can sell out fast so it just depends. Check Newegg often things change quickly there.

I Have a Asus Rog Strix Scar 2 from 2019 and its all right but runs a bit hot. MSI had a competing model that was pretty similar and also ran hot. Alienware is good but often over priced. I have no real experience with Lenovo gaming laptops but they seem to often review well.

It may not be a bad idea to get a cooling pad and when you get the new laptop watch those temps while gaming and go from there.

Would a good cooling pad be an effective way to prolong the life of a gaming laptop? Since they tend to due because of heat issues.

 No.49380

>>49364
Yeah the keyboard on my ASUS gets warm. Not really hot but warm and mind you never game on your lap their is normally vents down there so its best to only game or use it while it is on a flat surface like a table needless to say putting it on a bed or carpet is a big no no. Hell first page of the manual says do not use it on your lap. I bought a cooling pad and it helps decrease things be a few degrees in most cases. Its all based on games though FF14 wasn't that bad but new stuff like Metro Exodus and the thing becomes an oven. Likewise even if you have a game stressing it out turning down graphics and screwing with fan profiles can cool things down enough to not worry.

This is what sucks about gaming laptops even if your RTX 2070 is a fine GPU because of on going heat issues you may seldom ever really get to use its full abilities unless you want your computer to die faster.

>>49366
Yeah getting a cooling pad really helps. Many of the basic bitch ones at best buy are not so good for gaming but anything helps. Newegg and micro center have plenty that will not break the bank. Keep in mind though it just helps cool things down a bit and knocks off a few degrees at best. Not being in a really hot room also helps.

Best thing to do is watch your temps. Look up the model of your CPU and do research about what is considered safe. Most start throttling around 99 degrees but just because it throttles at that temp doesn't mean its good to be hovering around 97 constantly. Every new game you play especially if its newer and more demanding then you watch those temps and get an idea of what kind of stress you are putting on your system. Its its real old like Deus Ex then you don't need to be concerned. Maybe look just for fun.

I'll also advise in not getting a gaming laptop. Upgrades are non existent, and repairs will either be nonexistent or a money pit if you damage it. Not to mention it cost more for less. You're literally paying more for portability (which you said you don't need). Getting a decent gaming desktop and a cheap laptop (if needed) is my recommendation.

I recently dropped Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor, which was a sort of creative project from tinyBuild. I got it for cheap in a Humble Bundle. It was fun for the first few hours, when I was still exploring and figuring the game mechanics out, but after that it got really grindy. I kept playing past that point because I thought I was close to the ending, but then it dropped off another big load of grind unexpectedly, so I gave up.

I think my main problem with it is that there wasn't enough stuff to keep it interesting for the entire length of the story. There is little to do aside from picking up trash. The environment is samey and labyrinthine. There are many different kinds of trash to pick up, but most are not different from each other in any meaningful way. Similarly, vendors and genders aren't meaningfully different. I'm not saying it's bad, or that minimalism is bad, but there wasn't enough in Diaries to keep my interest beyond a few hours.

Anno 1800 is such a frustrating piece of hot garbage. I have no problem dominating the map on expert difficulty setting or finishing the campaign but it sucks nonetheless. Just everything is so all over the place in this game, it never gives you a moment of rest cause once you get to have 4-5 islands in the old world, a few in the new world, a large fleet (good luck to manage your boats because the UI is fucking laughable) it becomes an annoying clickfest where you have to think about 10 things at the same time, constantly re-adjusting some menial shit (duh boost meat production in 2 clicks) while in a constant hurry. The game don't even pause when we read the expedition texts.

Kentucky Route Zero. Started out promising, but very quickly became a complete slog filled with constant non-sequiturs and painfully meaningless dialogue. Could only stomach it up to Act 3 before uninstalling. Long story short, but this 'game' is complete shit and has staggeringly shit writing and I regret ever touching it in the first place. It's weird because I'd heard of this game for the longest time and always assumed it had an interesting story and I'm somewhat taken aback by how utterly rancid and nonexistent the plot and dialogue actually are. There's also zero interaction to this besides clicking through text. No choices to make, no puzzles to solve. Just clicking through text. It has some nice artwork and a couple okay musical interludes, but that's it. One wonders why this is even a video game at all, since it barely qualifies as one. A slight sense of style, but absolutely no substance whatsoever. A shame since an actual adventure game with this sort of atmosphere/setting would be quite good. Instead, it's just a clicking through text simulator filled with stupid and pretentious writing and dull characters. Oh well.
