It's that time again.

I'm conflicted on buying another 30 days or not on this game. Every time I do (already it tricked me 2 times) I regret it 5 days later and uninstall it but I the urge of playing it always rise again after some time the subscription is over.

It's starting to feel like a vicious cycle I'll struggle to come out from.

I already tried all kinds of private servers: Vanilla, TBC, WoTLK, Cataclysm, MoP, WoD, Legend but the retail has something that these private servers don't have (besides the obvious: the playerbase).

I even tried some other games: Overwatch, Path of Exile, FFXIV, GW2, TESO, Aion, battle royals and several other shooters but I can't stick around them too much. The only one I managed to was GW2 some years ago and most recently Overwatch but even than I can't stand them more than 2 hours a day.

I feel like I'm going to relapse again and buy another game time just to enjoy it a couple of day and then uninstall the whole thing again with the addition to wasting another 14 bucks.

I'm not broke, I can afford a monthly fee but I feel guilty because I fee like I'm not really exploiting to the fullest that payment I made if I just barely stay on the game a week.

What other thing I can do to avoid temptations?

Interesting video game videos

I'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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0 (Oblivion analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2tiINl-X8 (Nier Automata analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEj5FsBXFuM (Mass Effect indoctrination theory (there are three parts I believe))

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk8tsK-FIdE (Pokemon Yellow glitch series)

I also like this guys game design videos
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmY2tPu6TZMqHHNPj2QPwUQ

or pannenkoek2012's SM64 videos.

I just realized I'm being kinda vague here, I'm bascially searching for informative game videos. Any game goes.

RuneScape

Any runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?

Just curious what others think of the game, or what you're up to. I've been working on an account thats 2.1k total levels now and the game is a lil stale, I've never really dabbled in bossing or pvp and I'm mainly just an afker and skiller. Considering making an ironman or something

obscure lets players

I want to feel the comfy vibes of listening to someone morosely narrate over a video game. I'm not looking for channels where the person is aware he has an audience and behaves like it, or someone who makes a profit from it. I'm looking for a guy who's doing it for himself, just quietly playing through the game and occasionally making some comment or just talking about some mundane topic, maybe about his life.

How to get back into enjoying videogames

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.

Im planning to purchase a brand new prebuilt pc soon as I suck at tinkering with stuff and don’t want to bother learning to build one. Is now a good time to buy? Im not even sure how much money I am ready to sink into new hardware, but Id like it to last as long as possible ideally… Are there brands to avoid, standards soon to become obsolete, any basic trap for retards like me to be aware of?
PC I have right now is from 2011/12 and it was outdated even by that year’s standards, and I still use an old VGA screen from the mid 2000s, I guess I’ll have to ditch it and buy a new one?
I’d also like to know if shelling out some more money on top to get windows 10 is worth it? Again I reiterate I am tech illiterate and will rather spend more for convenience (like having the thing prebuilt) than waste time setting up linux or a pirated OS or something.

Comfy games thread

Can we have a thread where we suggest each other comfy games?

I personally consider comfy a game that doesn't require huge amount of exploration and has some sort of routine included. Like a set of locations or characters you'll visit every now and then on a regular basis. Like a Night in the Wood or even Fortune-499.

Playstation 2

When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

WoW Classic turning off autism

Hello fellow Wizards. So we have this guy over on 4channel that is super autistic, spergy af, and a complete downs clown. He gave me hope that I'll never be as autistic as him.

But just today, he released a video where he just 180'd and now is a complete normie.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbSmgeSg5jQ

How the heck did he do that? What pill did he take to be able to just flip a switch and disable his autism? Shit, just check his other videos it's like he was faking the autism this whole time?

Or am I just too autistic to see the obvious?

Indie/doujin/mods

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?

90s Waifus and Succubi in Nintendo/Sega/Sony

Let's discuss the ups and downs of various female characters from a couple decades back. What did you like about some? Hate about some? Ideally give an example of both in addition to any responses to others ideas. I'll start off with the Donkey Kong Country games. This isn't a furry-themed thread or anything, it's just a really great example I can think of of the contrast that can exist even within a single franchise.

Candy Kong was this repulsive ditz and the only female in the first game. She was supposed to be "eye candy" but I just found her an infuriating aspect of the game which I enjoyed entirely in spite of her.

Dixie Kong was nice. She just randomly joins her friend Diddy in a much more terrifying world than in the previous game to save his mentor who she basically didn't even know. Despite being a lightweight like Diddy, she made for interesting play. Her hair could hold barrels overhead like DK used to require 2 arms to do (wtf her neck muscles) while Diddy was stuck holding barrels in front of him. Her hair could helicopter to slow her descent from falls, which was really useful in sticking landings. She wasn't as fast as Diddy (who could tap into the Speed Force if you lined up a series of cartwheels into opponents) and made cute "ow!" noises when she was hurt, and would cry, it was endearing. A strong female who didn't want to be put on a pedestol but who was still cute and feminine. So much so that she actually became the star of the 3rd game in the series with that faggot down-syndrome Kiddy Kong cousin because DK and Diddy were kidnapped by a scientist.

The TV series adaptations kept Dixie similar-looking (but much less adventurous, which I didn't like) and gave way to much focus to Candy, who they changed the image of and gave more personality, but it was still annoying, like some kind of hip hop negress.

I grew up with games. I think I played at least half of the games which are listed in various Top games of All times lists. I used to be able to immerse myself completely into the games, and play for hours and hours. Even in the last few years, every once in a while I ran into a title that I could really fall into and clock hours playing it - not as much as when I was younger, but still.

Now this hasn't happened in quite a while, with really rare exceptions. I just can't start a new game, I don't have the patience to learn it and explore it, especially if there's a lot of things to take in (skill descriptions, complex game mechanics, long cinematics etc.).

I have a big back log of games on Steam that I purchased and never played, or played for a few minutes and then uninstalled because I just can't be bothered.

It's a shame, and it makes me feel melancholic.

Did anyone else go through with this? Did you find new hobbies? Is this thread even fit for /games/? Discuss, please.

Souls General

Can 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.

This thread is a simple thread that can be about Bloodborne, Dark Souls I,II or III, or even Dark Souls. It can be about any element, the lore or enemies, or anything. Also, any action RPG game recommendations are greatly appreciated.

/tibg/ - Tibia General #1

Welcome to the first ever /tibg/ - Tibia General on Wizchan!

This will be a large post to allow me to explain the video game to people not acknowledged with this video game. Information on which server the official wiz guild will be on is at the bottom, as well as in game contact information on what character I will be on so that you can reach me.

>what is Tibia


Tibia is a free massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) created by CipSoft. It is one of the oldest MMORPGs and was considered most noteworthy in its early years; however, with the development of MMORPGs, its popularity has grown much slower than other MMORPGs. It was first released in January 1997. Despite it being a free game, players have the option to pay a fee in order to upgrade to a premium account for either a cheap price or in-game gold, granting special in-game benefits, including additional areas to explore, access to vocation promotions, and extra spells.

>gameplay


The gameplay of Tibia involves advancing levels while training to improve skill levels, hunting monsters using weapons and magical spells, gathering treasures, doing quests and exploring the Tibia world. Players interact with each other in character so they can have conversations, trades, and group battles and partake in guilds for more role-playing opportunities. All skills and levels are not capped, and thus, there are NEETs who have spent a long time on the video game reaching levels like 1000. Here, NEETs reign supreme.

>vocations (classes)


KNIGHT
The Knight is the melee/tank class of Tibia. Knights are valuable both as lone hunters and as a defensive wall in team hunts. They are capable of drawing aggro from monsters with their signature spell Challenge, and have the highest carrying capacity, allowing them to stack backpacks in their inventory and looting insane amounts of loot, and bringing insane amounts of supplies.

PALADIN
The Paladin is the ranger of Tibia. Paladins are known as the best solo-hunters in the game, due to unmatched single-target dps, high mobility, balanced stats, and high capacity.

DRUID
The Druid is the nature mage of Tibia. Druids are known for their healing magic, high magical damage, and the ability to make a number of useful runes. Because druids are the only vocation that can heal, they are often the most sought-after vocations for any party content such as hunting groups and PK (people-killing) groups.

SORCERER
The Sorcerer is the wizard of Tibia. Sorcerers are known for their wide arsenal of powerful attacks, their incredible kill speed, and the variety of runes they can make, akin to the druid.

>community


Perfect for wizards. It has remained untainted by competitive e-sports and nu-gaming communities. Checking the site now, on a Saturday night, there are 12 000 players online right now across all the servers. Unlike other MMORPGs like World of Warcraft, it has a very server-centric community with singular players or entire guilds having the ability to set a mark on each respective realm through purchasing guild halls or a whole neighbourhood of homes, leaving the potential for us to create perhaps a wiz street. Also, PvP is possible and loot drops when players get killed. Also, upon death, players lose XP, leaving the chance for notorious killers to run around and assassinate others for the fun of it.

>my plan


My plan with this thread is to kindle (or even rekindle) interest in this marvel of a video game through fun gameplay in a world of dungeons, dragons and magic. To create a guild for us and us only and to allow us wizards to set a mark on the server, and to work together in order to forge a nice home together in the world of Tibia. Sharing supplies, going on hunts, farming mounts and just all around chatting among us.

>what realm?


I've chosen the Open PvP world Faluna on the region Europe as the official wiz server for the wizard guild. If you are not from Europe, then don't worry, Tibia does not require good internet connection, and thusly you can play with 200+ ping and still manage.

My in-game name will be Tryffin on the Open PvP world Faluna on the region Europe. Feel free to contact me in there, as I'll be online for most of the time. He's level 1 right now, but I'll be spending a lot of time leveling and kitting him out so that I can help fellow wizzies.

Mousepads

I need a new mouse pad, but can't find a suitable replacement that matches the autistic preference I've developed with the one I've had for the past 8-11 years now. It's an old promotional Crysis 1 mouse pad that I got in the collector's edition version of the game back in 2008 (I think that where's I got it, anyway), that has 4 layers with a coated polypropylene top and non stick rubber base. Things cracked and falling apart though, but any other mouse pad I've looked has a surface that is either too hard, fast, imprecise & slippery or too slow & muddy, with way too much friction. I tried the Corsair M600, but that shit was way too imprecise. Mouse was gliding all over the place and I had to make a conscious effort just to keep it locked it one location. Now I gotta return it Amazon and it's just a pain in the fucking ass. I'm thinking of trying out the Logitech G440 next, but based on some videos I watched, it's also way too glide prone as well. I wish I could just somehow rebuy the same mouse pad I have now, but I think I'd have better luck finding & buying a fucking Leprechaun instead. The closet I've come to finding something similar was spotting the SADES Lightning on Aliexpress coming directly from China. Even that doesn't seem ideal (also, it looks stupid as hell), which leaves me in a predicament of what to do. Even the act of buying a simple mouse pad makes me want to tear my god damn head open. I hate this world for more than you will ever know. How hard is to find a fucking decent polypropylene mouse pad. Ahhh, the pain in my head & chest. The stress and the bullshit. Just make it stop. Even the littlest things drain me entirely and turn me into a high strung wreck.

List of single-player beatable "PC" games

I'm sure lots of people are in the same boat as me, feeling in the mood to play through a single player game, but not knowing what to choose because there are so many choices, don't own any consoles, etc.

So I wanted to create a thread / list where people can post games are meet the following criteria:
1. single-player
2. are beatable with a story (no pure puzzle games, etc.)
3. are available on pc (including emulation)

Wilfully Burying Yourself in Garbage When There's No Need To

I've always found it quite bizarre how drawn I am to play complete trash, over games that I know I'd probably enjoy & find a great deal of effective, long-term escapism in. As some examples, instead of diving into something like Homeworld Remastered, or Arcanum, or Vampire The Masquerade, or The Witcher 2/3, or Skyrim, or Fallout New Vegas, or the hundreds of available ROMs & ISOs of classic games, all of which I've never played before, I instead, mostly play short, mechanically repetitive, indie trash. Crap like ECHO, or AER: Memories of Old, or Downward, or Styx: Shards of Darkness, and it just drives me crazy. Why do I waste my life playing games that are far inferior to other, better games that I've never played before? It boggles my mind. It's like having a gourmet meal in front of you and choosing to eat from whatever's in the shit encrusted trash can out in the piss covered alleyway instead. If I had to give an answer as to why, I'd say laziness. On some level it makes perfect sense, given my overwhelmingly lazy sensibilities, to play short, inoffensive garbage that I can finish from anywhere to 1 to 10 hours, as opposed to long sweeping games that require many times that amount to get through. It's easier, in a bizarrely masochistic sense, to play a short shitty game, than a long good game. It just feels like too much effort to sit down and play a game that I know is considered a classic and is something I'll probably like. It's almost like the expectation it will be good wears me out on an emotional level and playing something more mediocre & dismissable instead seems far easier & more doable. I have to be in a very unique mood to play a good game, otherwise I just seem to stick to the same sort of bland porridge overflowing on Steam and elsewhere that I've listed above. Anyway, I don't know. I just wish I wasn't like this. I have such copious amounts of time to devote to gaming and the way I waste, piss & squander it away like this, never fails to bother me.

I still haven't even finished Stalker: SoC with the OGSE mod, despite enjoying it quite a bit. Granted I got a bit too bogged down with the side quests (never made it the Red Forest, for instance), and the constant running back between zones got pretty tedious (even with the addition of vehicles, despite how impractical they are given the terrain & enemy spawns). Instead I play shit like Attack of the Earthlings, or Solstice Chronicles MIA, or Tartarus, or some such other crap that I finish in the length of an afternoon. Why do I do this to myself? Why can't I just play good fucking games instead of mediocre ones, when the good ones are right fucking there? Why does it feel like too much effort? I just really don't get it. I guess the simple answer is that I'm too lazy to get invested in a long, complex game, or that, even if it's short, that its goodness will be to wearying to handle. At the end of the day, I just really hate myself, I hate how ass backwards my preferences are, and I wish I could slam my head into the wall until it somehow functioned properly.

Defeating Normalshits in Games that They Enjoy

Are there fellow wizards out there who feel like this ?
Basically, I am a gamer . I mostly like JRPG's but there are also a lot of other genres that I take. When it comes to competitive gaming, I really am filled with determination to be better than all normalfags , especially those with a relationship with succubi . Whenever I see normals and those coupleshits, I automatically feel rage, rage to crush them in whatever game it is and I will train and train again to defeat them and carry the flag of the wizards, that they can never reach our skills, that our kind is out of their league . Right now, I saw a lot of normals on this game called Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune, it's a racing game and I saw a lot of normals in there and almost all of them have succubi, sometimes even playing with them . I can't wait to humiliate them all, their joy is my fuel, I'm going to take the crown from them away. I will show them what wizards are capable of when it comes to games . We should all make it our oath to be the best gamers ever in every genre imaginable, we are the elite of the games . They can never reach us because they never knew what we went through to achieve such greatness .

Android hidden gems

To find a decent Android game you have to wade through a sea of shit that is Play Store. So share lesser known Android games that you liked. I got:
Battleheart Legacy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFZYCumpvCA
An older single player RPG. Great combat and controls, interesting abilities and character builds, beautiful art, runs well on anything, too. The story is a bit short, but there is some endgame in the form of endless wave arena mode where you can get the best gear and try to set records.
League of Berserk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGtrK7BS8bc
A real time multiplayer dueling game where you basically click on abilities and potions and level your guy. Very repetitive, I found it fun until I hit later levels (25ish?), then it gets extremely grindy. Surprisingly alright community (chat), quite a few players online, though in most duels you fight against bots that use real player profiles. Somewhat p2w but if you spend a lot of time playing it matters less.
Day R - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXf4zbih0Ps
Top-down survival..RPG?. A little similar to Fallout1/2 but more simplistic. You travel from town to town and gather resources, craft items and try not to die. There is an online mode where apparently you can trade and complete quests with other players. Quite repetitive and difficult, I found only the early game fun. No paid items except the insignificant starter premium pack for few dollars.
CSR2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aYphit-JA
Online drag racing with ridiculously good and smooth graphics and lots of real car models. Beware - it's a heavily pay to win game. The only reason I mention it because you can get a modded .apk with unlimited stuff (that was some time ago though). I did that for a week and it was really fun using all the fancy stuff that actually costs thousands of dollars. Then I got banned but it was worth it, I suggest doing that if it's even possible anymore.
Now I'm looking for a multiplayer non mmorpg game I could waste my pathetic life on, any suggestions?

Maplestory 2

Anyone playing this game?

It has a weird character style, but there's customization and no pay 2 win and almost all content very much for free(for now at least). Or at least that's what I'm reading around.

It's not my style but I was thinking of giving it a try. Anyone playing, is it any good? Would you recommend it?

People has been meme'ing persona for years but I never had any interest because I don't play JRPG/RPG but I got myself a backwards compatible PS3 and now I can play Persona 3/4/5 on a single machine and I think I will give the series a chance.

I also have a hacked PS vita so I can play P4G and the weird dancing games if they're really worth pirating.

What's your opinion about this series? What game should I play first? and any tips for someone who has barely played any JRPG's before?

Games that left a lasting impression on you

My dad got me a Playstation and I was gifted an interesting game with smokey, aesthetic and obscure cover. I always loved the obscure, photographic covers over the colourful cartoony ones. It seemed more mysterious that way. The game was Silent Hill.

So the menu screen looked gloomy, but quite primitive, ok, let's play.

A nice intro, wow, some amazing 10/10 music. I replayed that intro many times just to listen to music. A man losing his daughter? Wow, what an interesting story, nothing infantile about superheros saving the world.

A man lost in snow, looking for his daughter. Fog everywhere. At that time it seemed like the most beautiful game. I know now the fog was to save processing power, but at that time it seemed the most mysterious and interesting thing. Due to the fog the world seemed so huge as I felt I could go anywhere, but the game sneakily led me down that alleyway path. I felt so at peace playing, beautiful snow, nice town, no living beings in sight.

"Wow, I have found my perfect game", I naively thought.

But then it all changed. The creepy wheelchair, the sudden darkness, the body, the sudden attack of those little monsters, feeling of helplessness…that was first part that made my heart race.

But at moment when it seems like you lost, you wake up in the bar.

"Phew, another soul" I thought…and then you got the gun and got to explore the town after killing that bird.

It felt nice exploring the town, the monsters were a bit scary, but I got used to the dogs and just shot them. I liked going in people's homes and collecting stuff.

But then I got to school…and then…then I got to hell world…and then I stopped playing for a while. The whole rusty atmosphere and demonic beings lurking in all corners with that terrifying radio sound…it was too much for me. I went to countryside to spend summer at my relatives and forgot about the game til I came back.

The game was still waiting for me. I wanted to finish it, I wanted to play it, but I remember that terrifying schoolyard, those bathrooms, that loud library box.

Somehow I mustered my courage and started playing it and slowly beating it. I could only play at daytime, since it was way too scary, but I still got through on easy or normal I think.

What a game it was!

How it left an impression to this day: I realise that some of the nightmares or dark dreams I'm having the same feeling of fear, the same nostalgic terror I had as a child playing Silent Hill I and having bad dreams about it later.

Wii

I'll be hacking my Wii soon and I would like to know your favorite and recommended games for the system. I've played the zeldas and marios of it, so I was looking for something that don't usually come up on top 10 lists from gaming sites out there, but if you feel like telling me about your favorite Wii game and it happens to be a popular titles I don't mind at all, I would like to know about it. So far I've put this list together. I've never played any of them so feel free to give your opinions on it as well. Also, anything else about the Wii is fine itt I believe.

http://www.airshowfan.com/videogames-narrative-storytelling-medium.htm
I was bumbling around the internet and found a (dated) argument about video games being bad for storytelling that articulated my thoughts far better than I ever could. For those who want the tl;dr version:

>The primary goal of a game is to present a challenge that the player is to overcome. Many games disregard storytelling and still manage to be engaging towards players.

>Despite being interactive, technology isn't at the point where a story in a game is actually affected by what the player does outside of a few story branches. Story in games can be split into two parts, one of which the player is allowed control and the other of which cutscenes occur that forward the plot. The former is only as meaningful as it gets the player to the next cutscene.
>There's no tension or meaningful connection between player and character in a story when video games allow players to have as many chances as they want and no one wants to play a game where you only get one shot at it.

Thoughts?

Collaborative wizchan game

Ok, I know this might get a lot of shit at first due to the way wizardchan has often handled any prospective group projects in the past, but I'd really like to make this work. I'd been staying up kinda messing around all night and I had just been thinking how, in the past, I was really interested in the idea of helping create a wizchan VN or some kind of game. The inspiration hit me again, and recently I have been much less depressed and a lot more motivated, so I'm definitely more than willing to try do what would need to be done. I don't have much coding or writing experience, but I was thinking that we could just use something simple, like Ren Py. I've been studying how it works a bit, and I think I could possibly learn how to do something decent, and I came up with a general story idea that I think could be fun. Not very good at art though, so ideally I would like to have someone who is willing to help with that.

so anyways, here's what I came up with so far, very rough, and it's only a bit of an introduction.
pls forgive names like "chad", I just thought it might be funny and a homage to old wizardchan, the succubus is also added just because it wouldn't be a good VN without the option to take that path imo. Also forgive the piss poor writing, I wrote it really fast out of excitement, but also too tired to care about arranging it in a more "presentable" manner atm.

gimme your thoughts wizzies

Megaman

With the new Megaman 11 being released next week I'll make this thread. Does anyone here like the megaman series? I played the games as a kid but the strategies you needed to get very far kind of went over my head at the time, so I didn't really play them seriously. I've recently been playing megaman zx on an emulator and I'm having a lot of fun, I love getting all the different weapons and stuff, I think that's the most interesting part of megaman games for me. I'm hoping with this new megaman game we can see even more megaman games in the future, especially stuff from the different time lines and all.
