The Sixth Generation was my most nostalgic generation and its the only generation where I owned every major console Playstation,Gamecube,Dreamcast,and Xbox.

The Xbox was my favorite of the four and I was wondering if anyone else here has memories of or still owns this console.
I would also like to know your favorite games on the console.

My list would be:
1. BattleFront 2
2. Halo 2
3. KOTOR 2
4. HALO
5. GTA San Andreas

BTW if anyone is interested in xbox game magazines here are some archives, pretty comfy stuff if you ask me. Really liked xbox and xbox 360, those consoles had so much nostalgia for me even if exclusives weren't as numerous as sony consoles.

Hey everyone :) . I also have an OG xbox 1.6 crystal edition console with xbmc.
I found a page where hex codex which if I paste into the games iso with hex editor, I can turn 4:3 ar games to 16:9

yeah but it stretches parts of the picture
there's also more stuff from the games on the screen in 16:9 than there is in 4:3, xbox's native output is 4:3, so how is that happening?

I don't have one yet, but want to get one. Thinking of stocking up on Jap games I can get for retail price now from Amazon, before the price for them will probably skyrocket. Anyone here like switch for Jap games like JRPG/visual novels? Is it good experience, I had xbox one and traded it in for xbox series s, but I'm starting to regret it, western games bore the hell out of me now, last time I played JRPGs seriously was good ol ps2 era.

Thinking of doing surveys to earn wizbucks to buy games off Amazon, figure if I do enough to get 10 dollars a day, thats enough to buy a full price game a week easy, as games are 60-70 here in Australia. I just need to find the motivation to do surveys for five hours a day. If I had a job I could just buy them, but I'm not sure I want to waste money on games anymore, I feel better if I just waste my time doing surveys, I have two laptops anyway so I can watch anime on one and do surveys on the other, I'm just lazy.

See if you can get a hackable switch on ebay, it might be a bit more expensive, but you could pirate all the games and save money on the long run, that's what I did.

And most Jarpigs and VN's are already on PC, I don't know why you should play them on switch.

Over the last few days I've been reading up on World of warcraft drama. Different guilds which fell apart (often due to succubi) and how various guilds fell from grace and disbanded. It reminded me of a time when guilds were a thing and people made friends with randoms in game and adventured together. It's made me wonder if any games exist today which still have a social aspect at all. Has discord destroyed in game communities and text chat to the point where it's possible?

 No.52667

I think people just stick to their discord groups now, I never had a single person talk to me in world of warcraft, actually most people straight ignore me, but in like runescape you can definitely find people to talk to randomly since it’s more of a social game and people still play it

I never played multiplayer games and until reading your post I thought this was the only real attraction mmo games have? It's really weird to me that people don't interact in those types of games anymore. What even is the point then?
>>52667
>I never had a single person talk to me in world of warcraft
Why are people still playing it? If you're going to play solo, at least play a single player game where you get to be the main protagonist.

The fact OP is having a hard time finding social interaction on mmo games is so odd to me. Wth people are doing in those games nowadays?

Games like that are complete cancer. Video games should be just like real games, with a clear start and end. Either with a story if singleplayer or a match if multiplayer. A never-ending grind to build up points cannot be called a game. And imagine how many people have wasted their youth on such bullshit. It's a crime against humanity.

I may have burned myself with this one. I wanted to explore every single nook and cranny of this game without any faqs and I have been doing just that. 80 hours in though, and I'm tired of the game and there's at least 4 other bosses and a whole area left to explore (that I know of). I really should have finished the game first and then do this heavy exploration on the second run, then I would have at least seen the ending. Another thing making it harder to continue is that I built a pure mage for this run as all the other Souls games I made the same characters over and over again (guy with a sword that rolls around, pyromancer guy, the usual) and wanted something completely different. This build though means I pretty much can't get a single hit in any boss as all of them can one easily one hit me. The only way I can beat them is to know inside out every move they have and it can get pretty boring doing the same boss 30 times. I know if I take a break I'll just forget about it and never come back to it.

This game is good but seriously who the hell thought it was a good idea to remove item boxes altogether? It gets so messy when you have a lot of stuff laying in the ground. I don't know, make them unconnected if you think it makes the game too easy, but removing them completely makes object management more of a pain in the ass than it should be.

It's funny, how bad videogames turns into candy, just by adding a few good mods.

Game looks comfy, and I haven't played a Harvest Moon in forever, but western games have such a bad rep nowdays, especially indieshit, that everytime I half think of mustering up the will to play that game I stop myself. It's not about money either, because I already pirated the gog version. I just don't think western games have any appeal anymore, and ALL western games are made by soyboys nowdays too, not just a few of them.

There's an unvirgin(impostor) among us!

This thread is to organize a game of Among us among us wizards(heh)
How? First, someone who is interested in playing makes a post and if 3 more wizards follow with a reply a person can host and share a code. Simple as that.

For those of you who don't have the game, you just have to download from one of these links and that's all you will need to play it online:

At least the original Sudden Strike is fairly far from C&C (TS to RA2, have not played others) realism and tactics wise.

Then there is Blitzkrieg, which is very similar to SS.

>>52645
Well, that is video games in nutshell, unless you do competitive e-sports.

But the enjoyment in grand strategies come exactly from 'changing' the course of history, with little help of hindsight.

It's just way too easy in Hoi2 (and Arsenal of Democracy and Darkest Hour) to win with Third Reich (until the fantasy elements).

Do I remember right that Valve replaced the normal in-game server browser found in Steam GoldSrc (because the WON one is slightly different) and Source-games up-to DoD:S atleast, with some console oriented matchmaking bullshit?

Highly disagree. TF2 was golden in its first few years 07-09. Post 09 it was the well known hatfest, and now its a dying game.

If I have to call a game eternal It would be Age of Empires II. About 20 years old, still going strong have an active community, tourney scene, amateur scene, players still playing. And it is still on internet cafes (if they are still around). I would have counted starcraft too but I think it died down a bit, mostly due to sc2 and then the general decline (maybe not the case in korea).

No other game imho is as timeless as aoe2

Have not the played RE remakes (well, except the Gamecube one of original), but from playthrough videos I gather there is constant cursing in the script.
So much it seems annoying and embarrassing.

The originals have B-class, 50's Hollywood Zombie movie dialogue, but don't remember a single case of cursing.

Finished Resident Evil Zero. It was a good game, but the item management stuff was kind of a drag, having to throw shit on the ground and then traveling back to pick was a pain in the ass, why did they remove the item boxes is beyond me…

Also doesn't make much sense that Rebecca fought a Tyrant, a huge creature even more powerful, killed dozens of dangerous monsters but in RE1 is portrayed as a scared rookie running away from a fucking hunter. But who cares, it was a nice game to play, with a big map to explore, too bad about the item shit.

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.

The first boss new players are most likely to encounter in DS2 are
Last Giant
Dragonrider

the first is laughably easy and unmemorable, the second you can take down by strafing around him, no rolling required, and he can also be exploited for a quick win (make him fall off the ledge, although I admit it may be tricky to pull off) I love DS2 but DS3's bosses are much better and harder imo than DS2s, not necessarily for good reasons mind you, iirc the slowest weapons are nearly unviable against some bosses (like the last one, soul of cinder or whatever) in 3 because of how relentless they are, and you while you can afford to trade hits with a random mob or a npc, it's not advisable against bosses.
