Why do developers no longer respect a player's time? When did it become acceptable to bog everything down in immense amounts of grinding to unlock basic content? Rogue likes where you spend 20 hours unlocking different weapons just so you can get lucky and find a good one to finish the game. Long in engine cut scenes where you hold forward while 10 gig of audio files play at you. What happened to just making a decent couple of hours game play?

speaking of pokemon… which are the best romhacks or fan games?


downloaded a bunch:
altered emerald
fire red omega
cystal clear
renegade platinum

But I don't think I'll ever play any of them, might give vanilla Emerald or Soul Silver a try, if I don't get bored within the first fifteen or so minutes…


I'm getting to where I prefer to program during the day instead of play games and then, when it gets to be time to relax, I no longer have the energy to play games or the games that provide the greatest degree of escapism and mindless fun are on Steam which I can't be bothered to re-install or log into. I hope my Steam friends think I'm dead.


you're just a noob who can't hang


They don't have to sacrifice the story mode for the battle system or training. They choose not to make it better.
Crystal Clear is probably the best one I've ever played. It's open-world and you can start in any town if I remember right. There are new trainers (self-inserts of the devs), new areas, tons of new music (Lt. Surge has Guile's Theme and the starting map screen where you pick a hometown has Pokemon TCG map music, for a couple examples), some easter eggs/events/secrets, trainers scale with your badge count, you can customize your sprite/pallette, quality of life improvements, etc. all while maintaining compatibility with Stadium and the vanilla roms.
The Drayano hacks that make all Pokemon catchable and improves all the trainer battles are good, too.
Prism was another interesting one. Has a couple new types and you get Larvitar as a starter.
FireRed Backwards is cool, too. They changed the overworld a ton and you do leaders in a different order. The starters are kabuto, hoothoot and machop I think. Haven't played it in awhile and always chose kabuto.
I think someone rigged together a story mode for the Spaceworld Gold demo that got leaked, so that could be fun playing with the cut roster.

I'm poor, so I don't have much, but I mainly emulate off of this shit. What do you guys think?


>what do you think?
nice, what's your favorite game?


What’s with the cotton swabs and peroxide?


Probably the NES Castlevania games, the atmosphere is untouchable for me. Ecco the Dolphin comes in as a close second. The ambience is one of my favourite things in 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.

Finally pulled the trigger and got a gamer laptop. Ryzen 7 4800H and RTX2060. So far it's very impressive. The n2 SSD makes it boot in about 4-7 seconds. Ram is 16gb DDR4 at 3200Mhz. So far it can run newly released or very demanding AAA games like Cyberpunk 2077 at triple digit fps on Ultra.


no way are you getting triple digit fps on ultra with cyberpunk 2077. Most benchmarks have it at high 30's low 40's for that gpu and 1080p.


must be with RTX on, guy in the video is getting 80-100


are you sure we watched the same video? because his average was in the 50s after running for a while. It's good and playable but not triple digits, even the gtx 3080 doesn't average over 100 fps in cyberpunk on ultra.


after he turns on DLSS he gets a pretty big FPS boost

Which visual novels have you enjoyed lately, wizzies? For me, I'd say my top VN's were Yume Miru Kusuri (only got one ending, am planning on picking it back up in the future) as well as "Our Lost World Beneath the Skies". I'm still looking for that VN that I can give a 10 on in Vndb, which I'm going to reserve for just one.
What qualities do you look for in a VN? I look for depth, music, and variety, and I don't like sex scenes (for YMK I would just skip past).

I took a break from reading VNs for about a year but I'm getting back into them a little now, almost done with Silver Case on the PS1. I've enjoyed it mostly, I'm not sure I'd call the overall story anything brilliant but it's pretty clever in its presentation and has a great atmosphere. Great soundtrack as well. Not sure what I'll read after that.

>What qualities do you look for in a VN?

A protagonist with an interesting personality, good music, characters I can care about and get invested in. I read a lot of denpa VNs before taking a break since they tended to check some of those boxes, my favorites were

>Sayonara o Oshiete

>Kurai Nichiyoubi

Unfortunately none of them are translated


I downloaded a bunch from gog, including corpse party games, haven't enjoyed any so far, they were all pirated so I don't care if they suck. I like anime, but the gameplay of VNs is too slow and tedious


It hit it's bump limit weeks ago.
At least the games one did.
Don't know about /jp/ if they still had one or not.

Subarashiki Hibi, Remember 11, Va-11 Hall-a, Saya no Uta, Steins;Gate 0. Those are my favorites I read recently. The first two are my favorite visual novels period.

Fate/stay night, Muv Luv, Ever 17, Never 7. I read these too. Ever 17 was only slightly above average and the other 3 were incredibly mediocre. I'm gonna read Muv Luv alternative sometime soon too since it's ranked #1 on VNDB for some godforesaken reason.

I've also been playing the professor layton games recently, but it doesn't seem like people really count those as visual novels.

>What qualities do you look for in a VN?

Same things as you. But the most important thing is that I actually remember it (In other words, it needs to have a distinct identity.), and it needs to have something novel or interesting to say.

I'm not going to remember generic dating sim #3234, but I think i'll have a pretty hard time forgetting Saya No Uta.

Should I build a PC or buy the PS5? I don't play too many games but I'd like to play more.

- Higher framerates
- More accurate inputs with mouse
- Cheaper games
- Bigger selection of games
- Can use for other purposes

- Bigger screen (TV)
- Simpler to use
- Lots of games made to be played with a controller
- PS5 exclusive games
- Advanced controller vibrations

you will never be a japanese or live near them


It’s just a joke, desu.



A lot of your positives for PS5 are actually very moot. Let me adress them one by one.

>Bigger screen (TV)

My friend has a 120Hz TV that he plugs his PC into. Everything is HDMI now.

>Simpler to use

Debatable. More on that later.

>Lots of games made to be played with a controller

Why not use a controller with your PC? I don't understand your argument at all here. There are controllers that are way comfier than the PS5 one but even that one is compatible with PC.

>PS5 exclusive games

Like what? Demon's Souls? What a tool. Emulation will give you access to a plethora of console exclusives and you will get to play in higher definition and with mods. Get PS3 Demon's Souls and crank that shit up to 1080p 60fps or more if you put a budget for your PC.

>Advanced controller vibrations

Get a vibrator, weirdo.


The Gabe Gear is some unholy fusion of console and PC (that runs Linux).


Modern consoles are basically just PCs that use propeitary APIs.

I've started a new modded Terraria playthrough in expert mode. If anyone is interested, join the steam group at https://steamcommunity.com/groups/eventv

Pirated clients should be fine as long as you have a steam account and Terraria (or thereabout) with tModLoader I'm still working out a better way to connect but steam should do for now. The mods will download automatically if you try connecting through tmodloader.

OP here, still up to play if anyone wants to


game looks fun but too time consuming and intimidating to get into


I just started this or late last month and I got to the first boss. I play hardcore and I've only died to those bosses, the optional slime boss and the crimson/corruption boss. Other than that this game has been so linear. Is it supposed to be this linear? I also have trouble finding tons of ores for armor despite looking in the caves and as deep as I can go. I had a combination of silver and gold armor last run before I died to the crimson boss. I'm doing this mostly without the wiki as well so I might be doing something wrong. I kind of get bored doing the same things for my runs even though I am definitely getting way better.


I never manage to build nice houses like that. It's usually just a few spread out rooms and maybe I'll connect them with a roof when there's many or I just build my base underground

These pictures always are. I feel that poster is only fishing for replies.


The funniest thing is all that expensive boutique identity signalling pro gaymer insufferable wanker gear and they still can't draw for shit.

Bugmen. They should be broken with a rod of iron.

D&D thread.
This a thread about the D&D games that are going on already between a few wizards.
We spawned out of the previous thread with a lot of time and effort, but we're always ready to accept more players.
Writeups of the sessions will likely go here and discussion of the game and system(s) also goes here.

New campaign. a fine entry point for newcommers.

we play online with no video, if you are interested send an email to:

I will post a propper writeup at some point if I can stay ahead of it.

The two hired contractors arrive on the same carriage to the faraway city, they are 2 days early and gather information about it.

one is the manipulative changeling, the other a brute of massive proportion, the changeling is quick to squeeze information from the locals and on his methods he does rub one of the guards the wrong way.

the changeling brings out a book of grudges, he gets info about the job, some rescue of the 2 other adventurers that were hired for this job, besides the job itself.

I would write more but, can be arsed to it.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

What games do you have on your bucket list? What childhood classics have you been intending to finish for years but not got round to?

I've been hearing great things about pic related, picked it up for cheap some months ago and played like 20 hours and got bored to it (and as I understand that's just the tutorial or something)

I can't muster the will to return to it, the characters are cool but I'm a retard and I can't understand most of the mechanics and I keep playing mindless shooters like Doom Eternal and Returnal.

Everyone says that is a fucking masterpiece, I would like to try but the second I put the disc in I get confused and a bit bored and turn it off again after a while.

What do you think?


>Everyone says that is a fucking masterpiece
>played like 20 hours and got bored to it
>I put the disc in I get confused and a bit bored and turn it off
maybe you just don't like it, just because some other people hold this thing in high regard doesn't mean it is actually the best thing ever created, if it's boring to you then don't waste your time


I beat it earlier this year and really enjoyed it but I've always been a fan of JRPGs and VNs. Maybe turn-based games just aren't your cup of tea. Or maybe the non-dungeon segments are too slow for you. But I don't think it's that complex. You can get by in battle by just targeting weaknesses, baton passing, and repeat. There's also stuff like technicals but I honestly ignored them for most of the game since it's not that difficult.

Anyways a lot of people think the first dungeon and story arc is the peak of the game so I wouldn't really recommend continuing if that doesn't pull you in.


The thing is that VN's are actually my cup of tea (JRPG's a bit less though but still enjoyed some).

But this game, I don't know, the presentation is fantastic, but the mechanics are a bit overwhelming and the story doesn't seem to be a masterpiece besides "hurr durr gonna fix the corrupt adults!" something straight outta Kids Next Door.

I will try to give it another chance though, something similar happened with RDR2 a first and ended up loving the game later.


Persona is very moralizing shounen-tier stuff. Some scenes in 4 were nauseating, and I played it back when my tolerance level for these tropes was significantly higher than what it is now.

Speaking of VNs what's your opinion on AI the Somnium Files and that vanillaware 13 Sentinel game if you've played them? They seem quite popular.
