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?

No, but part of my subconscious really wants to play again. Ever since I quit several years ago I still have dreams of WoW every so often.

If you are tanking it is pretty up to you to make sure everyone knows how to play. As as guy who mainly plays dps I tend to just never do anything but dps my heart out because if I cc the tank or someone else will break it. Interrupts are best left to the tank or some other melee dps since they have ones with much shorter cooldowns. Even then you have to have someone as a designated interrupter otherwise more than one person will interrupt at the same time, wasting that cooldown. A healer not doing his job is inexcusable, though. I noticed either I get a great healer or some idiot who does nothing but heals the tank and then blames the entire group for the inevitable wipe.

With that said, in modern WoW you can be braindead and beat every normal dungeon with little difficulty. I also wish completing all three ranks of the proving grounds were a requirement before doing any mythic. I have no idea why blizzard implemented those awesome tutorials and just hid them away at class trainers that no one goes to.

That is the thing, the difficulty is what made the game fun. Like imagine playing basketball but increasing the hoop to ten feet wide and moving it right next to you so you do not have to get up to score.

The entire fun in any games come from the difficulty imposed from pointless rules. Blizzard basically just slowly took out all of the difficulty and just gives you rewards basically as a thank you for playing.

I've been playing bfa while waiting for classic and the state of the game is so sad now. I got a world quest that granted me a ilvl 385+ item for killing some elite boss out there in the world. Cool. Turns out all I had to do was literally click a button, instantly get into a raid, and then the raid zerg rushes the boss to have him killed in two seconds. Then boom, I get my item, guaranteed. It is fucking ridiculous.

Attached video @2min in is exactly what bfa is like. Not even an exaggeration.

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.

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

For the past few months I have been playing on a private server called vidyascape. I left osrs because I didn't like the direction the game was taking. I feel like the art direction and gameplay is deviating from the original character of the game and detracting from its authenticity with every new update. I don't want act like a shill for the private server here, but I do want to share my discovery because I think it could be appreciated by wizzies who are equally disappointed by the current state of osrs.

Vidyascape is a server created on 4chan's /v/ board in 2014. It offers a 2007 experience, meaning no post-2007 or redditscape content (except for things like ironman accounts and gilded armour). Notable server differences are inf. run energy and double xp (I dont like the latter but oh well). It also has no grand exchange, which is great imho. What it does have is regular updates, many quests (somewhere around 170 qp) and a ~30 active players during peak hours.


What I like about it the most is that the userbase comprises almost entirely of imageboard users and this acts like a natural normalfag deterrent. Sure you might get the obnoxious 4chan type here and there, but most of these guys stick to the osrs generals.

I wish more wizards would play there so I could have some company.

I tried vscape years ago. Aside from the fact that I kind of outgrew the stat grinding (it seemed so boring to me doing it again, idk how I thought it was fun as a kid), it was just so empty. The world felt pretty lifeless to me without the large population legit runescape had/has.

Fuck dude, I did almost the same thing once. I would also agree about the nostalgic quality; reminds me of Mike Paradinas' (AKA µ-ziq) work from that point in time.

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.

Just reading the steam page of the game The Alchemist Daughter nearly put me in tears.

Gibbing generic enemies in some fps is nothing. Ripping off limbs and beating the guy to death with them is something I have chuckled at. But that game is something I don't have the stomach for.
It is weird when you think you don't have limits of what you will play and out of nowhere you run into something that just pushes all the wrong buttons for you. At least it is for me. It isn't that I am offended or anything. I am glad that it exist, but I won't play it because it would emotionally wreck me, which is not something I really look for in my games.

for those interested, daggerfall unity has entered alpha stage. this means the core gameplay is fully implemented. they are still working on refinements/bugfixes and adding things like classic hud, as well as tuning some formulas for gravity, jumping, and movement speed.

fighting games are a nearly exclusively companion-centric thing and you will be forever shit unless you hang out with people IRL regularly.
these normalfags you will be forced to play with are constantly moving on to "the next big thing". if you like a game and want to play it, you will be playing it completely alone soon, within a year probably, making all of your practice and money invested worthless instantly. you know how many people are playing street fighter IV still? zero. you know how many iterations that game had and how much DLC it has? probably $900 worth. all worthless now cause no one plays it. if you suggest to play it they'll say "wtf dude no, i'm practicing this new anime fighter, besides that game is shit and broken" because every old game is "shit" even though they liked it at the time.
the normalfags you are forced to play with are braindead apes that talk in buzzwords and memes and use weird coded twitter language that will take you a year to learn on its own. when they try to "help" you, they'll talk in this weird coded language and think you're a retard for not understanding. they'll just think you're a retard in general and ostracize you in under 12 hours.

also i don't know if you care about this or not but most local fighting game hangouts have 0 white people, or their one white person will be a succubus/tranny.

it is a complete waste of time, money and energy.

Other than the obvious (practicing a lot) just watch other people play your character and get the frame data. I got competent at tekken in no time and I had never played it before.

Yea, I've noticed fighting games seem to appeal a lot to niggers, spics, and mentally deranged whites. I'm assuming most people in this thread are non-white.

 No.46567

I can't stand playing multiplayer games since the other players tend to be like rubbing against sandpaper, but you get better at them by doing the "training mode" and learning all of the "frame data" so that you know that doing, say, 236 a (down, down forward,forward, horizontal) is less frames than your opponents attack, or that your opponent will do something like parry, so you do a slow break attack.

Played a bunch of Soulcalibur VI this way. Got pretty good but mostly because I don't watch or copy other people but instead make up my own gameplan based on what other people do.

It's a scam because they aren't literally sold as jpegs. They sell the idea that you will actually get them in the "game". Of course, the game is never coming, so in practice they are jpegs.

what do you mean? it's in alpha stage right now, and you can very well play it. Some of those ships are concept - yes, but the other half is in the game and you can try them out and fly. My concern is that they've said that all ship ownership will be wiped on release (maybe I got it wrong) ships that people paid for

You know it's going to happen. People walk over gamers any chance they get and they've been getting a lot lately.
