Minecraft Technic 1.7.10 Pack deadbabies 15/01/19(Mon)21:07 No. 143678 ID: a2579f [Reply] Stickied

File 142169804159.jpg - (272.71KB , 1264x682 , chk_jschl.jpg )

Looking for people interested in playing a semi-cooperative game of modded minecraft. We're using the 1.7.10 Pack using the Technic Launcher (Yes, you have to use another launcher, but it won't overwrite your other Minecraft installs). You must have a legit copy/license of Minecraft to play. The setup is fairly straightforward.

The server is 24/7 dedicated, regularly backed up to both protect against errors and griefers, and if we get enough interest I will probably enforce a whitelist policy

If interested, please join the IRC channel on irc.7chan.org #ftb. We have all kinds of tech and magic mods to satisfy mostly everyone. You're welcome to co-op with our core group or set off on your own.

This version of the server's been running for a few weeks and is pretty stable. The server itself through vanilla and various modpacks has been running for two years and we could use some new, creative blood who is interested in playing!

For basic information on setting up and connecting the information is in the topic. If you're having problems, deadbabies (me) and DIMT can probably help.

All we ask is that you're interested in having fun and creating stuff. We can help you out with getting set up! Some vanilla experience and modded experience is helpful, but not required.

Java version 7 (not 8!) is required to play. The launcher works on Windows/Linux/OSX.

>It actually constitutes a game,
No, not really. All you do is chose a path and watch what happens. There is no strategy or skill and very little thought involved (the only thought is "I wonder what happens if I do this).

A game has to test you in some way. A point/click adventure tests your attention to detail and your problem solving ability. A puzzle game tests your problem solving ability, your reflexes, and/or your ability to think under pressure.

In Stanley Parable, your progress is determined only by your willingness to do so. Any such "game" isn't actually a game. You can call it an adventure, but not a game.

Halo 4. In general. The aesthetics feel less sleek and refined, which worked in Reach, but feel out of place in a game set after Halo 3. This was something I could move past at first, but it grew to bother me more and more as the game progressed. The control scheme felt very Call of Duty, uncomfortably so. In fact, a lot of the game is uncomfortably COD. S[pec/PARTAN]-Ops, kill cam, a sort of prestige mode, killstreak rewards, customizable loadout system, leveling system. Even the points in multiplayer suddenly have a couple zeroes tagged on to the end for seemingly no reason other than to be more Call of Duty. Does this make COD bad? Hell no. But it does make Halo 4 less Halo.

Moving past that, how's the plot? It's... a plot. It exists and tells a story. How are all of our beloved and well known supporting characters like The Arbiter, Rtas 'Vadum and Lord Hood? Good question. I dunno. Moving along, the Covenant are back, which actually does make sense considering all that happened was the three high prophets died, but the elites are now their new leaders, completely ignoring their well known separation from the Covenant in Halo 2 and the fact that there is an entire rest of the Covenant high council of prophets. Oddly, the new main enemy are the forerunners, who you may remember for being dead and having killed themselves to save humanity. They're apparently mad at humanity now for some reason. A lot of this is adequately explained in novels and comics, but even then it gets weirder and more confusing, with humans apparently having colonized space and messed some stuff up with the flood thousands of years ago. So... that happened.

The covenant themselves are lacking any of their species introduced in Halo 2, again with no in-game reason. There aren't a lot of vehicles, enemies, characters or weapons carried over from previous Halos. One would think this is to balance out all the new stuff, but one would be wrong. There is a profound lack of new stuff, save for the forerunner equivalents of existing weapons, which aren't particularly original and often aren't useful. So without much new and without much old, the game just feels a tad empty and unfinished. There are several new vehicles in the campaign, but the pelican isn't used for very long, the ship is only used for a bullet hell level and the mammoth, despite being an elephant big enough to carry five elephants, is barely used. I've discussed this game with others and found one of two consensuses. One opinion is that there was one moment that left the player thinking "Yeah. This really is Halo," an opinion gained at what is universally described as "The moment where you step out of the cave and there's that cliff" and lost at differing points between the platforming and the forerunner robot battles. The other opinion is that the game is profound and amazing for showing a more human side to John and Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Rimworld 15/01/29(Thu)09:12 No. 143740 ID: d2ef46 [Reply]

File 142251913096.png - (897.49KB , 1360x768 , GmX9a8LuhH.png )

For those not in the know, Rimworld is a 2D base builder where you start with three crash survivors. You have to survive on a planet and create a base which will protect you from various threats, ranging from psychic insectoids to rabid wildlife to pirates. Your colonists can starve, suffer heatstroke, have their limbs blown off, and more. Think Dwarf Fortress, except you can tell what the fuck your're looking at and the UI isn't shit. Plus, the game has an AI storyteller which is designed to decide what events will make your game interesting. "Interesting" usually means kill or cripple your colonists, but sometimes it pulls through with a very intense save. At the moment Rimworld is in alpha, but it's more than playable. The dev is focused on fixing, improving, and adding new mechanics rather than new content with each release, so if you want to expand the content, you'll need to download some mods or make your own.

If you want to buy it, and this is one of those games where I think supporting the dev should be fully endorsed, it costs $30 and can be obtained here:
With each release, you are given a DRM free .zip file which you can download 7 times. This resets with each new release. Each .zip file can be copied as many times as you want. There is no install, you just unpack the file and play.

The thing I love about this game is how easy it is to mod, and how easy it is to install mods. The mods I'm using right now are:

-Better Power
Most of it doesn't work in the current version of Rimworld. I keep it around in case the guy decides to update the mod.

-Central Heating
It adds something the game should have had when temperature was introduced: vents. Rather than having one cooling/heating unit per room, you can have one per building and connect each room with vents. It also adds industrial heaters.

This is my current colony.

The first image is my med-bay. There are two freezers for body parts and corpses because I like to harvest body parts and sell them to slave traders.

The second image is the prison. The left half of the prison is for captives who are well. The right half is where I heal the ones I want to convert, and butcher the ones I don't.

The first image here is my comms room. One of my dudes can be seen researching something or other, I can't remember what. To the left of the comms room is the crematorium and kitchen.

The second image here is the hydroponics bay and my food processor, which nobody uses anymore since I nabbed a fuck ton of survival meals off of a raider party. I had to make a second food freezer because I have so many survival meals.

Also, the only things my people will eat (besides survival meals) are potatoes and people meat. The crematorium is just for the bodies I can't cook fast enough. Since my colonists keep getting their body parts blown the fuck up, nearly all of them are patched up with bionic limbs and cybernetic implants. I am effectively running a colony of cannibalistic cyborgs.

What version/gen do you think Pokemon had a point where it started to go downhill?

Personally I thought diamond/pearl/platinum was good, then the games started to go stale a bit.

what do you think /vg/?

This chart summarises my feelings:

Gold/Silver/Crystal was where the series peaked, after that they started running out of ideas and tacking on annoying shit to try and make each series "unique" (because admitting it's the same game in different packaging isn't the Nintendo way). Even the Pokemon themselves looked like the rejects they dug out the bin complete with fold lines that gave them ridiculous geometric features and a lot of the charm of the universe fizzled out as a result. For me the series has pretty much flatlined, they're still good, don't get me wrong, but I doubt the quality is ever going to pick up again.

I think FireRed/LeafGreen are the best ones.

I used to think that Pokemon got progressively better with every generation, that Game Freak would surpass their last title in terms of quality, and, until Black 2/White 2, that was true. Every game was better than the last, and I always felt like I had more fun than before.

And then X and Y were announced. I was hyped as fuck, with all the new 3D graphics and the new region that looked awesome, I thought that it was gonna be the best Pokemon yet.

I got my copy of Y day one, and I was hyped for the first week I played. But after the initial hype died down, I felt bored. The game, the region, and the Pokemon felt so bland, and one I beat the Elite 4, I had no interst to pick the game up again. I felt a little empty after it was over, and I was disappointed.

And then OR/AS came out. I got it after the hype died down, and it felt more boring than Emerald, which I played almost 10 years ago as a child.

So yeah.

TL;DR It got progressively better until X/Y came out.

15/01/28(Wed)02:56 No. 143733 ID: a1d58f

I didn't grow up with Pokemon, yet anything after the Gameboy Color games left a bad taste in my mouth. The last Pokemon game I felt like completing was Emerald, and the last Pokemon game I have played was Black. But I haven't wanted to go back to Black, mainly because I disliked all the new Pokemon it introduced beside a small few and the fact that absolutely none of the old ones had an appearance as far as I can tell. Though the touchscreen made it interesting to play. That said, my experience with Pokemon is also rather limited. I have access to the other DS games, as well as the other GBA games but haven't wanted to even try them either. I have never been a big Pokemon fan because it was just a shitty JRPG series in contrast to what was available at the time, and has only gotten worse.

I think the new Super Smash Brothers is... I don't want to say terrible, because overall I think it's a well designed game, but it just feels lazy.

I mean, there is so much reused shit from Brawl and the older editions. While I'll be the first to bitch that Brawl felt more like an expansion pack to Melee, I'd almost equate this to DLC. There are so many assets reused. Old characters have very little changes, same stages, same music, etc.

The only thing that they really added that I think is neat is the bit of character customization they allow but if this game is all they have accomplished in the 7 years they had since they finished Brawl, there is a lot of disappointment found.

And from what I can tell, I'm the only one who has this opinion. Most review sites seem like they either bought the hype or sold out, and all my friends are telling me that I don't know what I'm talking about. Anyone else shares this sentiment?

Kerfuffle Thoughts? 15/01/23(Fri)04:55 No. 143706 ID: f99a3d

Didn't feel like making a new thread for this, so fuck it. I'll reuse this one.

Does /vg/ still play Kerfuffle? Do you wreck people in For Glory? Do you still play with friends?

I found the single player to be lacking, and the character choices were good. (For the most part. Dark Pit can eat a dick.)

The best part that I found about Kerfuffle was that I actually have friends that I hand out with at work, and on breaks we'll play Kerfuffle on our DSs for a while without having to bring a console and TV. The 3DS version's portability really adds a lot to the game.

Online sucks for me though, as I can never get a connection, even on the Wii U version. Maybe it's just Comcast, but I really wish I could play online properly.

15/01/23(Fri)07:37 No. 143708 ID: d0502a

I actually just got a WiiU for Christmas and I'm loving smash. Granted, I completely skipped the Wii and this is honestly my first smash game since the 64. My opinion is one formed from years of being taken in by the hype machine. GTAV was the straw that broke the camel's back and ushered me to Nintendo this Gen. I know my situation probably isn't the same as OP's, but take it add you will.

>this is honestly my first smash game since the 64.

Did you miss you on Melee back in the day? Shit was tight. Came out only 2 years after the original.

As someone who's first Smash game was Melee, and who was hype as fuck for this game, I felt like it delivered for the most part. The online's pretty shit, but playing local multiplayer is agoddamned blast, and 8-player is so fucking hectic and fun. The roster is really good, but I wish the stages were better (especially on the 3DS version.)

I was initially interested in this game until the devs said it's "more forgiving" than Dark Souls. I wasn't impressed at all.

15/01/24(Sat)17:20 No. 143718 ID: 13d3ab

Watch some videos.
It's easier than Dark Souls. You get more challange playing as a Rogue. Warrior is really hard to kill, so it's basically an easy mode. Of course, wearing heavy armor will make you really slow. Long story short, you will die if you play recklessly, but if you take it slow, you won't die as much as in DS. You can take a couple of hits and still get away with it.
