RantThe actvision blizzard ip is complete garbage. Microsoft is risking to go bankrupt buying a shitty ip with old washed up games, with the only main game that is decent which is call of dooty, redundant and gets pumped and dumped. There is no way in the pits of hell that garbage is worth 70billion. All of their titles are on life support. The story lines of all call of duty are autistic cringe after bo1 no way in hell that garbage is worth 70 billion.
Moving over to console gamingBack when I was a teenager I thought that I would be a PC gamer forever, because PC gaming was superior in my mind, probably had a little to do with 4chan memes too. But I am starting to change opinion, a console is looking more and more attractive now that I'm older. I don't really care about hardware anymore, it feels like things move so fast now, I don't even know what the newest hardware is and whatever it is it is way too expensive. I just wanna lounge on a couch and play games with a controller and not worry about hardware specs or compatibility or whatever, just have fun.
Games you're currently playingThread for discussing games you're currently playing.
Sega Dreamcast systemHey there wizfrens where should I go to buy a working Sega Dreamcast system. Ebay, Amazon or Facebook marketplace? I plan on selling my Original Xbox and PS2 and go buy me a Sega Dreamcast system after playing it at my friend's house. My friend won't sell me his. So any ideas?
Souls GeneralCan we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.
Post in this thread when you finished a game.Previous thread >>53822
What are some overlooked RPG's by the mainstream that are goodI'm really looking for another good rpg that is refreshing. I have already played games like Dark Souls, Skyrim, Dragons Dogma, SMT 5, ETC. What are you guys playing right now. Personalty I am playing through Persona 3. Its great so far. Still think SMT 3 is better though.
Interesting video game videosI'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.
Fire Emblem threadAnybody play Fire Emblem? What are your thoughts about Fire Emblem Engage? Personally, i'm excited for it. We haven't really got a fire emblem game before that looks this colourful, and the entire premise just seems like it could be stupid fun even if the stories bad. It also seems like they're returning to more traditional gameplay ie bringing back the weapon triangle/a jaigen character and the maps looks like they could possibly have much tighter design than three houses. But who knows. Honestly who cares if the game ends up being bad, i'll probably still get some enjoyment out of it and we know that a genealogy remake is coming because of the leaks so it's not like the series is dead if this game sucks.
fear & hungerhave you ever played this game before? is it good or bad? (I watch some videos about it but it seems meh) but the graphics, the lore and the ambiant make me want to play it.
Twitch thread #2I know its not the real second thread but its the 2nd on the catalog so whatever
ChessAnybody wanna play? I'm over at Lichess at the moment.
Elder Scrolls onlineAnyone here play ESO? I just bought the base game for $6 and it includes most of the maps seen in the elder scrolls series. It seems like a good game so far, way better than World of Warcrap at least. It's an elder scrolls game with an mmo format, and I think it's the best the series has ever been. They fixed the camera and you can play with it far behind your character, like any good mmo. What do you guys think?
World of Warcraft DragonflightIs anyone interested in joining a few wizard NEETs playing the new expansion for world of warcraft? for the past month it's just been 3 of us but we are looking for more wizards to play with us. We are trying to be a wizonly group so we havnt recruited anyone else, post here if you are interested or already playing, we're on eu argent dawn and playing horde
steam sale wintershare gems game you found and post good game play
Free, low-spec PC gamesThe best page on the Wizchan Wiki was the list of free games, nearly all of which were low-spec and could be easily downloaded without bloatware software managers such as Steam. I'd like to rebuild a list of games that meet the criteria of free, with a suggested focus on games which are capable of running on that old IBM Thinkcenter in the closet.
social components for the anti-socialHello my fellow sorcerers, with the Steam sale up I come looking for suggestions on things that have *some* player interactivity, competitive or otherwise.
“Skill-based matchmaking”I've been trying new genres of games and as a lower skilled player the only thing that allows me to try these games in multiplayer is SBMM. I've tried games in the same genre without it, and the difference of what my true level is is palpable. I've been reading forum threads to see what the normies think about it. And one thing I've learned is that the type of gamers who post on forums, are usually not your typical average gamer, but more hardcore just to care enough to post. So often their complaints might be the opposite for a casual noob like me, and actually be to my benefit.
Playing online with a wizard group?How possible do you think it would be to assemble a group of wizards together to play an mmo or similar co-op type of game? I tried years ago and many years before than and I never managed to get more than 3 or 4 people to play at one time. Do you think this is an impossible goal? I sit at my pc basically all day long, I don’t see why there aren’t any other wizards in just the same situation who could have fun playing some casual game together. Of course the games would have to be playable without voice chat but there is plenty of those I think.
Nothing even comparesI played Final Fantasy II/IV when I was 5. This was the first real "story" I ever engaged with. The whole "the villain is actually your relative" trope that most people get introduced to with Star Wars? That happened to me with FFIV. Every minor plot twist blew my mind ("What? Kain is against me? What? Kain is being mind-controlled by Golbez? What? Golbez is actually my brother?!!!). But when I saw that whale, I had this cognitive dissonance finally hit me. It was just too much. I was just too overwhelmed. I had to step back and sort of 'recap' what the hell was even happening.

Made a Vtuber AI gameMade a Vtuber AI game and posting it here for you to shit on and rip apart.
Visual Novels ThreadWhich 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.

Games You Wish Were Not CanceledHello everybody, in this thread I would like you to talk about games you kept an eye on but eventually got canned. Not just (potential) masterpieces, just titles that stirred your interest for one reason or another. Here's mine:
Were old games better?I think there is just something “magical” about old games, like someone’s great ideas put in to the limitations of a early 2000s game engine that was handcrafted by a passionate nerd. I think limitations and those unique oversights/bugs were really what spawned great games.
Playstation 2When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.
the best game in the worldI want to share one of the best games I've ever played in my life, not only because of its aesthetics, but also because of its playability and the great content it offers, not only that, apart from being very accessible despite having low graphics (not to say shit) Runescape old school is one of those games that are little known, this game contains millions of stories, of Venezuelans earning a living to be able to eat selling runescape gold, from people who repeat the same action for 3 months in a row to be able to get 99 in a skill, and even people who pay in-game money so they can have a girlfriend. Runescape is huge and you don't stop finding new things every day, it's full of content and besides it's FREE… Up to a certain point since you can buy a membership and play the game 100%, since the free game is limited to certain things and certain sectors, but don't worry you can farm money from the game and buy a bond, which gives you 14 days of free membership, and if you know how to take advantage of them you will never have to spend real money to buy the membership. It's crazy what this game can be and I invite you to play it for free on steam, android, and iso. I don't know what my fellow virgins expect to be able to play this fantastic game
Grand StrategyChose a random nation, Bosnia. Got a gold province, Kosovo. Going to conquer Venice soon.
Must play vidyaZoomer here, I've got a lot of time to kill, I wanted to ask any wizzies here what would be some must play games for me to try out on any console excluding ps5 exclusives. I've started playing some ps2 games such as drakengard and Persona 3, I got really tired of all the dark souls I played. Preferably give me a lot of japanese made games, although that isnt mandatory. Thank you!
Big Rigs is the best racing game eversomething about the game strikes total attraction to me like im in love with the game, its cool ass graphics and functionality of the game runs so good i cant believe my eyes. desert bus is also fun too it is a total time killer and has always been part of my time throughout my whole life
Vroom Vroom Racing and Driving Game ThreadI'm not legally allowed to drive in meatspace but I enjoy driving and crashing in computer games and I hope other wizards do to. People (plebeians) think racing vidya is all the same but that couldn't be further from any of the truths. There are combat racing games, racing simulators, arcade racers, rhythm racers, driving simulators, driving racers, kart-likes, and some other kinds even maybe. If you played any recently or want to play some soon then let us know in this thread or the next one if this one has over 300 posts.
Wiz City - Loli Golf pre-2006Albatross 18 / PangYa - anyone remember this?
Definitive Video Game Genre TaxonomyI'm seeking feedback, criticism, and suggestions to improve the DVGGT. What makes sense? What's unclear? What aspects do you disagree with?
Games you're currently playingNebuchadnezzar. Man this game caught me by surprise. Just found out about this title 2 days ago. It has been consuming my life like no other game in a very long time. I'm a fan of the old city building managers like Caesar and Cleopatra but this one really hit it for me. Starting with the setting. Ancient Mesopotamia is one of those historical periods I was always fascinated by but for whatever reason never actually got in the right frame of mind to really sit down and read about it more closely. Nebuchadnezzar is divided by campaigns where you manage important Mesopotamian cities, from the neolithic and early bronze age, all the way to late iron age and classical antiquity. From Sumerians to Neo-Babylonians.
Post in this thread when you finished a game.Thread for games you managed to finish and your thoughts on it.
on leaverspeople who complain about leavers in games have no sense of probability or soul. why play a league game where everybody is losing lane hard and cant outscale? why play a csgo game where you are getting rolled 10-0? why play a overwatch game where you are getting fullheld after they did a clean sweep? not just in terms of probability to win but also just the soul of it. these games are unfun, shitty, and often sources of rage. so just fucking leave. simple.
WC3 world editor>finally tries WC3 reforged
Evil Dead The GameAnyone 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.
Buying a gaming laptopWhat 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.
Dead Rising 2 is actually just as good as Dead Rising 1Dead 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 hypnosis by their prime predator.
Play-to-earn gamesHas 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.
COOP gamesDoes anyone want to play something like DRG or Ratclick together?
Indie/doujin/modsThis 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.
games you used to like, but don't anymoreare there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

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