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.

do un-authorized and authorized/licensed expansion packs/add-ons count as indies/mods? (not by the og devs)

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.

I believe you can get revelations physically with the limited edition which includes all three versions on the cart, but it's most likely very expensive and rare now. I got it for that reason alone years ago because I got a really good deal on it. All the modern Fire Emblems have had DLC, even that Echoes remake they did if I'm not mistaken. I don't know, I don't even like modern Fire Emblem.

are there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

shin megami tensei strange journey was in my top 5 games of all time list back in 2012 to 2018.
i replayed it this year and it's so much easier and braindead than i remembered, i think i became more skilled at turn-based games and at exploring maps and conserving MP, and this game just offers no difficulty whatsoever for me now and i steamrolled through all fights. i remember when i first played the game, horkos was so difficult that i died to him 8 times in a row. when replaying i killed him in like 5 turns. it is a simplistic game for babies. play wizardry 8 if you want a hard turn based experience.

or how about dead rising? this is another game that i considered infallible art, i bought an xbox just to play this game back in the day. when replaying its HD rerelease on PS4, all of the psychopaths are way less interesting than i remember them being, the dialogue isn't even cheezy or fun, it's just melodramatic. dead rising 2 is superior in just about every single way with much more effort put into balance and content quality and quantity. and the funny thing is, i didn't even like dead rising 2 at launch. it makes me feel like i've evolved as a person.

maybe i will add more later as i think more on this subject.

let me know if this has happened to you.

I don't feel too sad. I've changed much for the better. It's that I realized how bad the game design for these games were. I 100% my games now on the first try or at least complete it. If I find it's punishing to 100% or play, I drop the game and never look back. I only 100%'d these games since they were my childhood games. I still never even BEAT LOZ:WW though.

FFXIV. The game got dumbed down to such an extreme that I just find no joy in the "end-game" content anymore. Homogenised jobs, lack of job fantasy, lack of build customisation, brainlet rotations with little in the way of optimisation or variety. Sure the fights get flashier but it always comes down to the same song and dance you need to learn and memorise and perform. Then you grind the raid/trial for 6 months to upgrade your gear and reset next patch when it gets bumped up a whopping 10 ilevels. At least there's no fear of falling behind since catch up gear is always easy to acquire and virtually handed out, giving you a ticket into what is "new" to do. The story is fine and serviceable I'll give it that much, but I don't play this as a single-player game. Which leads into my biggest gripe. The community.

Why is everyone in this game so fucking horny? Half the people you find have some kind of slutglam on. But that's not the end of it. It's an MMO, of course I expect grown men pretending to be female to deck themselves out in the most uninspired hornywear they can find. It's when they don't shut the fuck up about sex or make lame flirty jokes with each other in dungeons or raids. went searching for an FC and each of the 4 I joined which seemed promising all had the same types of people in it who couldn't seem to get their minds off sex. It's quite likely half of them fucking ERP'd too. I go into any of the game cities and get bombarded with people advertising in-game "clubs", of which upon research I found they sell in-game fucking SEX. The game is paradoxically both too anti-social and social at the same time, hitting both extremes. You just want a chill group static with no commitments outside of clearing? No can do. Either have some friends already or join up with an FC and suck up to everyone on Discord. Where they will spam porn and horny modified screenshots of their characters. It drives me insane and I'm not on Crystal before anyone says. I know full well that's supposed to be the containment DC for this tripe but it seems to be everywhere. It never used to be this bad 5+ years ago and just seems another symptom of how everyone on the internet and everyone Gen Z seems to be perpetually horny 24/7 and won't shut the fuck up about it.

I remember it still being the horny/tranny game when I played it back around the time the golden saucer was released. I'm honestly not surprised they've dumbed things down so much or that they continue to do so, I've gotten back into it recently and it's mindblowing how bad the average player in regular dungeons is. Not new players either, but ones without the little sprout or with the little crown. I'm talking about normal ARR content too, the game almost plays itself and they somehow suck at it. I'll probably never touch any of the "difficult" content, I'd get too frustrated trying to pug it with a community like this and having to network in a videogame seems miserable.

>tranny game
It is more than ever. I just put this down to a reflection of the modern world now though more than anything. Though it's no surprise that a cutesy weeb game with catgirls, dress-up, housing and other dull social tendencies like "clubbing" and of course "(e)rp" attracts that kind of person. But you're right that the average player is just atrocious. There's a myriad of reasons for that ranging from it being a mostly casual "MMO", the abundance of roleplayers, people who don't really play games etc etc. A far-cry from even the likes of FFXI which was positively hardcore in comparison to this. Finding a competent "static" to play with is really a necessity for at least savage content. I barely managed to scrape through the current extremes in party finder after grafting for days but savage was just impossible. The content isn't even difficult. It's literally just a memory game so long as you have big enough stat sticks to meet the bare minimum.

>I think I might have to go with Unreal unironically even though I will likely utilize a fraction of its features
If you hop on the UE5 bandwagon you can get your project some notoriety early on. UE5 with its "infinite polygon" technology makes it a real good performer when you scrape away the fat. Instead of bogging down the shader and VRAM with image materials you can just carve detail directly in to static meshes and then apply proceural shaders per-vertex with no substantial performance impact. EU4 assets can be quickly made compatible with UE5 but not vice-versa for all.

here is a comparison of unity vs unreal

unity
free - $0/yr for <100k annual profit previous year
plus - $400/yr for 100-200k profit previous year
pro - $1800/yr for >200k profit previous year

unreal
standard - $0 for <$1M total profit, everything afterward has a 5% royalty


it's hard to directly compare them because unity is royalty free with an annual subscription based off the previous year's profit, and unreal uses total profit with a royalty. for most people, they will never make more than $1M, so of course unreal will be completely free, but these amounts really are nothing when you're making that much money. the biggest loss comes from the fees that steam charges, like 35%. epic games has a much better 5% fee but isnt as popular yet

>What games inspired you to do it?
Fond memories of playing Spyro, Jak and Daxter and even Croc. I might do something else first like a shmup or a monkey ball clone or something just to experiment with 3d. A monkey ball clone would be ideal for figuring out analog controls/camera controls and could be finished fairly quickly. The levels are just made up of textured boxes and you don't really need to have any animations. It's all physics-based.

I didn't know that about Epic. itch.io might even be free to use but it isn't exactly synonymous with quality or well known. Most popular itch-related YouTube videos are about downloading utterly broken games and malware from the site.

you can pay whatever you want to itch.io, even nothing. but itch is mostly for indie developers and is pretty well known for that. successful devs on there become successful mostly by making tons of simple games, quality over quantity. for your first game it's probably the best site to sell on

No idea why, but I love those hentai games where you play as a shota who has to avoid getting raped by monster succubi and (literal) succubi. I don't find appealing the ones where you're some chad who rapes succs or some succubus who weakens male enemies by having sex with them, and much less wholesome hentai games. I especially like the ones where the battle mechanics revolve on being raped (usually RPG's).

Most of the ones I've tried, however, are rather bad, have serious shortcomings, have no translation, or are super short, which is a shame. I still enjoy trying them out as I await for the arrival of the legendary perfect monster succubus game.

I like a lot of the games I see posted on hemdomblog, at least the ones I can get working on my potato linux laptop.

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

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

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

these linux tech channels are always going on and on about how linux is totally going to win against windows soon™ and it just never happens, almost no games are being shipped with official support for linux and the way that linux is built as a bunch of cobbled together modules from a bunch of different devs makes it impossible for a game to run correctly without a layer of latency needed to convert everything to work the same. So you could have some guy with arch linux, systemd, alsa audio, wayland desktop running the newest cawadooty at 10000fps while another guy is on ubuntu with some kde desktop open source nvidia driver that gets 60fps with microstutter

I just cant justify paying the money for a console, it's too expensive to buy games.

My whole life is on the internet, so having a good PC is even more important for non-gaming to me. I already need a good PC. Therefore the question comes down to buying a gaming GPU or getting a whole different device with its own CPU etc, with which it is much more difficult to pirate games.

 No.56986

you can get really good 1080p monitors under $100. 24" for under $50 on ebay sometimes. if you're a poorfag you should have low standards so there's no reason to get higher resolutions than 1080p and higher framerates than 60 hertz. over 2/3 of people on steam still use 1080p for single monitor gaming because it's perfectly fine

there is no such thing as a 2070ti first of all. for 1080p gaming it is also overkill. you can still VERY comfortably game on the 10-series gtx nvidia cards which. gtx 1080 on 1080p 60hz performs the exact same as 2080 on 1440p 144hz. gtx 1080 is the most cost effective graphics card you can pick up. even now with this insane market because of gpu mining they are only $300 on ebay

if i had to build a cheap pc from scratch that could game it would be like this. keep in mind the majority of these parts can be reused as you upgrade. and also when you upgrade you can sell your old parts and use that to buy the replacement so things will always be cheaper than it seems. as long as proof of work mining allows 8GB gpus the 1080 will retain value despite being old

$300 used gtx 1080 on ebay
$30 cheap ssd for windows on ebay
$20 1tb hdd for games on ebay
$100 for i5-10400 on ebay is a good starting point for a cpu. anything more you pay more. anything less you lose performance. if you had a pc and cpu to begin with you could use that as a comparison, and decide whether the imrpovements in upgrading become worth it, but you dont so just realize it's pretty good. the 10th gen (this cpu) and 11th gen both share same socket so if prices drop and you ever need to upgrade to 11th gen your mobo will support it. but motherboards arent that expensive anyway it's just nice to know
$70 for LGA1200 socket motherboard on ebay
$60 16gb ram on ebay
$80 24" 1080p monitor on ebay
$30 550W atx power supply on ebay
$50 used atx pc case on ebay (just a structural component to attach things to, it doesnt matter if it's used, just make sure the form factor fits you motherboard)
$50 for gaming keyboard and mouse should be enough to source decent stuff from anywhere. if you dont want to use mouse keyboard for gaming, you can get whatever is cheapest, and then just reuse your console controllers for gaming

this is around $800 for literally everything including monitor and mouse and keyboard. yPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

also this might actually be cheaper than console in the SHORT TERM if you consider the costs of your tv and console and any immediate game purchases you made for your ps5. so yes i don't think gaming is quite as expensive as you think. this shit would be so much cheaper also if you had a pc to reuse parts
