I need some games to play. New, old, shitty graphics, great graphics, FPS, RTS, RPG, doesn't matter. Giving you a list of games i already played would be a pain so just list your favorites.

I'm personally digging Tales of Phantasia. I'm going back and playing some of the old Tales games

Currently playing Wasteland 2 and Legend of Grimrock 2, having a lot of fun with those.

Console or pc?
Really old school or just new like they mention on these posts?
SOme ideas: Super Contra from Super Nintendo or NES Castlevania and then Castlevania Draculas Curse.
Maybe Metal slug series?
Fps on pc just for laughs, Plants vs Zombies, left 4 dead, Arkham City, HALO, black ops, ...
StarCraft: "...neever know what hit 'em..." NUCLEAR LAUNCH DETECTED! BOOM!

What are some good games for a decent laptop that is however bottlenecked by its Intel HD4000 GPU?

I'm going away to study, so I was hoping to find some good games to be able to mentally decompress when I have the time. Specifically looking for old and indie games because, well, those are the ones that come to mind first.

We all know this eel.

Answer 1 if you can be fucked: PSX emulation.
-Ghost in the Shell
-Heart of Darkness
-Wipeout 3 or XL

Nobody can really be fucked in reality though. Missing plugins and settings not set right all that shit.

Binary Domain (I haven't played it but I think it's UE3 and it mostly story so should be alright.)

Gaming was always inclusive. Anyone can play video games, nobody ever stopped anyone from doing so.

Why would you even think people fear inclusive games being made ? This isn't about keeping video games a sausage fest, this is about websites hammering "gamers are assholes" and censoring whoever calls their bullshit.

I love this game to bits. It's two of my favorite franchises blended together with great care. I know the very core of the warriors games is flawed and acknowledge that someone might not like it, but I just can't get enough Koei Warriors.

With that said, the first DLC is out, and I wish to report that Epona might be the worst friggin' weapon in the entire Warriors franchise, hands down, bar none. Not that it isn't powerful or anything, but it turns the game into a fucking mess. The camera goes fucking apeshit every time you try to duel someone. My eyes actually hurt.

Plus, there's a blind spot in your attacks right in front of you, it's actually slower than any other moveset in the game due to having a little hopping animation upon dash-running, and, of course, being constantly in motion when fighting is not actually practical, because duh.

Now, to be fair, it has terrific AoE and the basic strong attack is rather awesome. But on the other hands, my eyes still hurt, so fuck this horse and any fan-pleasing factor it might have.

Link didn't need a sixth weapon when most characters only have one, and he certainly didn't need THIS weapon.

Still a good game though. General discussion I guess.

I gave up on Nintendo after the horrible experience I had with the Wii and seeing Ghirahim in the previews for Skyward Sword. Was not impressed at all. I don't think they know what they're doing anymore.

I don't imagine we can actually talk about the game at this point ?

How do you guys feel about Lords of the Fallen?
I watched some leaked footage from full version and it looks bretty good.



As a poorfag I must carefully choose games to buy.

It's basically dark souls but with a few tweaks, an inability to choose your character, and cinematics.

Now, is it a good or bad thing ? Up to you to say.

How do you all feel about Super Mario Bros 2 being a direct rip off of some Japanese game called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic?

Miyamoto Shigeru was very involved in the development of Yume Koujou: Doki Doki Panic, it's just they decided to release it internationally as part of the Super Mario Bros series, but they changed and adapted things to make it a Super Mario game.

14/10/21(Tue)09:58 No. 143386 ID: 5d741c

Pretty sure everything Japanese is a rip off of something else.

Monster hunter freedon unite has a rip off of Paul Ruskays score for Homeworld playing in the background for the dessert area.

Bad when it's intentional. Worse when it pretends to be original and source. Ok if it's done unconciously, just using their experiences as a base to bhild from or a refrence to live up to.

14/10/25(Sat)21:22 No. 143414 ID: e1e4b8

I dont really care. Super Mario Bros and Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic are good games

What's up with this new trend or buzzword/meme whatever of 60fps?

Is there really a difference? Why is this being done now?

holy shit dude you have no fucking clue what you're talking about AT ALL.
shut the fuck up!

Most games (every game) interpolates frames of animation for each frame of rendering (it finds a position between two frames of animation and uses that as a frame of animation), but really this style is on it's way out as motion can be more accurately described than a simple translation of vertexes of a model ('linear algebra').

I'm still disappointed Microsoft failed to convince any developers to implement that Kinect sample code, which featured outlines of other Kinect players in multiplayer games.

So many missed opportunities for horse dongery...

14/10/21(Tue)08:40 No. 143379 ID: 5d741c

60fps was bare minimum for PC games when CRT monitors were the primary display device.

Already full of flicker at 60fps any less was unplayable. Of course fps and hz of the monitor did not have to match. But fuck you.

Games were faster then and about skill and implementing fast generated ideas. Traversing the environment as fadt as possible. Crouch behind objects to regain health did not exist.

85hz was the real bare minimum. The fps of games needs to exceed if not match the hz of he display so each frame rendered is shown so that fast play is smoothly shown.

120fps was nice. The more fps generated and the more shown meant a better experience was had. Scince multi core, aka gookism didn't exist input lag and stutter didn't either.

60fps is piss poor, enough for slow play, wander around and look at the environment with a slow turning camera speed using a controller.

Mouse input's bare minimum is 1000hz. The more input is reacted to the smoother look is. The faster play can be. The more precise aiming can be.

But because of gookism high res widescreen america is shit newsmedia loving terrorist faggots, frame times are important. So you may do something but it will be shown half a second later. Input being low on the list of priorities in mantaining framerate. Stupid. Should be priority 1.

I've got no idea what it is. Probably a tiny online multiplayer game focused on grinding your lifespan in return for increased to the stats of a character. Combat being an immigrant affair of weighing stats combined with repeated clicking. Mindless.

No. Get a job if possible. If not wander around on foot. Flirt with girls.

EVE seemed interesting about a decade ago. That could be worth checking out, avioding people part of gameplay. Find out how to do tbings on your own. No joystick fighter controls and on foot freeroaming mean it's a piece of shit though in reality. Sort of like homeworld 2 maybe. Sign the Freespace 2 petition, fuck that looked good.

Shame you don't start with the dash. X2 is so much more fun to speed run I think.
