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.

Just play what you like, even if you've played it before. I still play bejeweled, tetris, mahjong, solitaire, I play some mobile games but not a whole lot, cod mobile, osrs, I tried league of legends but was never really into that. I still play games on my old consoles, monster hunter on my 3ds, castlevania dracula x chronicles on psp, all the ds castlevanias. Right now I'm playing through the mass effect trilogy on my ps3, I also play oblivion occasionally on there, demon's souls, I played fable 2 on 360 not too long ago. Basically all the games I enjoyed growing up I still enjoy, and there's so many that I did enjoy I can easily pick up anything I feel like playing from a variety of genres, just sticking to what I already know I like. Any time I try something new I'm like I don't care about video games that much anymore, or I must not enjoy them since I'm older, but all I have to do is play old games I'm familiar with and I go back to having fun with video games again.

Snowy places have rednecks too, it's just they're less objectionable. The American south is just particularly bad because they're all descendants of slave owners and indentured workers aka white slaves meaning they got a mixture of psychopathy, entitlement, and laziness from the slave owners, and stupidity and servile attitude from the indentured servants. This has resulted in a breed of redneck with low intelligence and low empathy who follow authority figures within their community blindly while simultaneously having a superiority complex centered around race. In short, they're assholes.

I quess Kentucky as a 'border' region doesn't count then. Either way, rednecks there are good and decent people.

Then again, I'm thinking completely different thing when reading or hearing 'redneck', and that should be understandable what with my father and three grandparents being Afrikaaners.

Does anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?

This one is quite underated. It has all original voice actors, script was supervised by the same writers as the movie, gameplay is good and it represents well the concept of playing as a ghostbuster.

This game is essentially the Ghostbusters 3 movie that was never made. I am surprised no one ever talks about it.

I rented it back when gamefly was a thing and I still played consoles.

Great game and I had a lot of fun with it, but at the same time I can kind of see that the appeal was a bit niche so it wouldn't be talked about all that often despite being overall excellent in just about every way.
Only thing I didn't like about it was I couldn't really get into the co-op content since the servers were totally empty even all the way back then and I couldn't convince any of my family members to spend a few hours playing through the missions.

Vice City had Rockstar money and could afford more licenced music as well as to flesh out the world.

Just getting the license for a Scarface game probably cost Vivendi a suitcase load of cash as it is. Radical Entertainment also has far less resources then rockstar as developers.

Just ravaging and messing around with a mod loader version of nfs most wanted.
I´m playing the game on my winxp computer, where it truly belongs.
I don´t like to see these games getting upscalled, they either look weird or "tiny" the 3d models reflect this very clearly, if you make a comparison. The fov can also suffer from this.
So that´s basically what i´m doing with my free time, since nothing else seems to be enjoyable anymore.
I tired making fraps work with American Conquest, but for some reason it doesn´t detect the game at all, i don´t know if it´s because of the GOG version or something…
I´ll figure out a way to go around this issue later.

What have you been playing or modding wiz anons ?

I don't think I ever got in long enough chases for those glitches to happen. NFSMW was definitely my favourite from the NFS series by quite a lot.

Losing speed is a big no no lol
It can alter how you end up getting busted.
Can be all of a sudden.

Yeah there is a bug when some roadblocks, or cops can get passed through like ghosts, i don´t know if there will ever be a way to fix that, since it might be hard coded inside the game itself.

Yes.
NFS Underground 2 also has a lot of potential, i plan on modding it, after i make more variations of nfs most wanted.

You know mod loader is good for what it is capable of doing, but some mods that enhance the racer AI mainly, among other stuff only use vlted as the only method sadly.

I wondered if the glitches are meant to be in the game as they only ever really happen in later stages of the chases when everything is totally insane. The SUV's fuck your shit up and the cops start racing in cars as fast as yours lol.

I just remember getting pissed off when invisible road spikes and cars obliterated me.
NFS went downhill after most wanted I played some of the later titles from back then when I loved games and it felt hollow even if you removed the auto steering and breaking.

You know another cool racing game was pod racing. I loved that game when I was younger.
Was funny watching you pretty much kill all of the cop cars a fun gameplay wiz.
share your best clips or gameplay and I will watch it.

 No.55084

>>55083
well the cops are already as fast as any vehicle you put your hands on. ( im using a police mod btw that i made for personal use )
You can see that they catch up quite easily, as they have faster response ratio, and the ai_skill is maxxed out.

I think NFS went downhill with the following games:
- NFS Undercover
- NFS Rivals from 2013
- All the others post-2013

I enjoyed Carbon ( basically a fancier most wanted game ) Pro Street, Shift, Shift 2 Unleashed, and The Run for what they were.

Ah yeah P.O.D Gold i saw it on GOG, cool arcade game indeed.
If you loved playing that game, then you absolutely have to check out the following games:
- Re-Volt
- Powerslide
- Rollcage
- Room Zoom Race For Impact
- Airfix Dogfighter

Fraps is still good for what it tries to achieve.

I'm just not really impressed by graphics leaps anymore.
In the past, going from one console generation to the next meant a radical change in games' core visual makeup. Nowadays, it's all incremental.
It feels like we are at the point of diminishing returns. Look at it this way:
PS3 was many times more powerful than the PS2. And proportionally, games looked many times better.
PS4 has a GPU many times more powerful than PS3's. PS4 games look better, but do the look many times better? They don't.
With this new gen the jump is even smaller. You're getting a bit higher graphical settings, higher pixel counts and occasionally performance-destroying meme tracing.

To me, a new games generation isn't exciting for graphics anymore. It is exciting for potentially new game mechanics and features, and richer, more dynamic and complex worlds. I would like to see technological advancement in areas like game physics and mechanics, but it seems that devs are more concerned with making their games marginally better looking at the expense of precious system resources. It's sad

The area where games lag HARD is the AI but considering most are multiplayer now I guess devs don't care about AI because human players take up the slack.

 No.55025

often new graphical features are just small unnoticeable details, to you that is, but these little details take like a huge impact on gpu/cpu use and there is no way to disable these things. it is sort of annoying, I'd rather play at a higher fps than have super-realistic grass simulation or 4k uncompressed textures that I won't even notice

Indeed. I was going to parrot myself again about generation six being the impasse but I guess I don't need to say it. By early 2000ish it was advanced enough to do whatever you needed.

 No.55074

there are no graphic leaps anymore, there used to be from 5th to 6th gen then everything after that is just adding more polygons to textures which are not really that noticeable. games from 10 years ago look about the same as games now and play the same too, there's only so much artists can do with the tech, even if software runs all of it there's only so much detailing a 3d modeler and animator can do, unironically the new trend will be to reject realism and go back to cartoony simple stuff in the following years.

 No.55075

Nanite tech is basically going to mean the end of graphical upgrades. You can't get any better than being able to render an infinite polygon model.

What did you think of it? I wish Donna's part had been longer, mordeau or whatever his name was very very short and disappointing, the castle was the best part imo, the factory was neat too, the chris part was fun too, fuck that final boss though, cant imagine how its going to be like on village of shadows difficulty.

 No.55044

It waw good, capcom were smart enough to market the game on the succubus boss to het normalfags to buy it, but it's honestly a solid game. Definitely the best part was the castle, the factory tried to hard to feel like that RE4 part with the regenerators imo. I don't know why people like the Beneviento mansion so much, it just feels like generic modern horror games like Outcast or whatever. If I have something to complain about it's how unrewarding some of the minibosses feel, I wasted all my ammo on that giant in the graveyard and got jackshit in return.

no, the game is just complete garbage, I don't see why an adult would waste their time on it, it was just one of those chatroom type of games you played with your playground friends in 2005 and now people think its some serious game, the entire game is just click some object over and over and over, it's the most simple thing in existence, and people always praise the quests in the game but they are hardly even good, there are some decent quests, but the majority are needlessly cryptic, pointlessly simple, or the only reason it is hard is because there is some annoying boss that you can't kill unless you cheese the game mechanics, there is not even any community anymore either, it is just normalfags with pub chat off talking in discord

unfortunately the average gaymer would just call you a manchild if you presume to actually care about your hobby and want to defend it from miscreants like fags and feminists, so its fucked

I am playing Megaman ZX(2nd time through) and I don't know if I like it or not.

First of all, the in-game map is basically useless, it's open world, but there is no way you can tell where, for example "Area K" is with logic, you might logically think "Oh, area K is probably around area I", well you would be completely wrong, area K is next to area C. That is just one issue, but you can solve it by just looking at a map of the game on the internet.

The next issue I have is with the bosses, every boss has a weakspot (I think it does double damage) and if you hit that weakspot then you can basically win without even trying, but the downside is that when you get the biometal piece after it will be damaged based on how much you used the weakspot. The problem I have with this is that a lot of the bosses have a huge weakspot, like you have to actually try to not hit their weakspot. This makes it so you have to spend a lot of time meticulously chipping at a bosses legs or something just so you can get an undamaged biometal OR you can cheese every boss and then just grind the game's currency to repair the biometals later if you absolutely cannot beat the boss without the weakspot but grinding currency is tedious and slow.

Now the core issues I have is that the game doesn't really offer any challenge. Platforming is basically non-existent, the difficulty comes solely from screen crunch and reacting to enemies as soon as they appear on screen. The bosses are pretty simple and stray away from the formula of other megaman games, there are projectiles that are not meant to be dodged like you would do in another megaman game, instead you are just supposed to shoot at them until they go away.

The game feels good to play but everything else is just kind of stupid
