Did you guys hear about the transition to Steam? Where they will be changing actual gameplay to make it more accessible to new players? Are you guys fucking terrified?


HOLY FUCK guys, this might be the end of Quake Live competitive gameplay, the casualization of the Quake 3 formula for monetary purposes. Welp, back to Quake 3 Arena I go.

Uh wait, does this mean they're dropping browser support? I'm not installing Steam just to play it.

Doesn't appear that they are dropping support for it, but I am not sure. All I know is that ITS HAPPENING

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

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

Extremely unlikely, since the new OS was put on an older, slower drive.

The problem was all the background applications (e.g. systray) crap he had installed. His list of running processes was fucking enormous. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a couple pieces of malware/rookits running as well because it was all "free" and pirated software, and that shit's chock full of worthless crap (especially if you click the next button during installation like an addict getting their next fix).

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 like puzzles, city builders, and TBS so:

Anno 2070
Contains an extensive amount of technology to unlock. There are many scenarios to play through and multiple AI to face, each with their own behavior.

Not as in depth as the Anno series, but every building is available straight off the bat. It's much easier and takes less getting used to.

Civilization 4 and 5
4 has a more technical aspect to it, but is limited by technology and UI antiquation. 5 is more up to date, has more mods, and the AI is more fun to play against, but it lacks the depth of 4. If you get all the expansions for 5 it matches what the vanilla version of 4 was.

It's chess with bugs, and each piece has a weird move set. They pulled a Jew on the game and charge for extra pieces in the form of DLC, but the regular version is just fine if you're okay with playing against other people. The AI isn't really that difficult to beat.

I never got the fascination with Chrono Trigger.
Like, it's a good game, but I don't think it's anywhere near the best.

-Gameplay is solid, but not spectacular.
-Story is good for a SNES game, but it's not as immersive or enticing as other RPGs I've encountered. (Planescape Torment, Final Fantasy Tactics, Dark Souls, Deus Ex, Morrowind, etc.)
-The characters are about as diverse as any characters found in most JRPGs. I'd say their personalities and eccentricities are run of the mill.
-The concept is good. I liked it, it's probably the thing about Chrono Trigger I liked the most.
-The enemies are dated by today's standards.

So yeah, I'd say it's above average, especially for its time, but there are better ones out there. I think it's one of those things you had to play when it was new to appreciate it, so to me, if this is the case, it didn't age well.

Why the fuck is this game so praised? I like roguelikes, believe me. I like platformers, believe me. This game takes those two genres and goes in a good direction with them and then breaks all fun into tiny pieces to be barely more than a frustrating mess of shitty "random" level design.

Shopkeepers are difficult to kill, understandably, but sometimes they say that I'm a terrorist because some complex chain reaction involving a bat, an arrow trap, and a TNT box happened while I wasn't even there. Sometimes I start a level and they scream, "You will pay for your crimes!" when I haven't done anything in previous levels or in the current one. Bug? Glitch? Bad design on the procedural generation?

Sometimes you get hit and knocked back, only to fall fifteen stories and bounce nine times and land on spikes.

Roguelikes were never fair or forgiving, but traditionally you can work around an out-of-depth enemy or a difficult randomly-generated champion enemy or some other weird spawn. So why is Spelunky rated so highly? Why is it titled "rogue-like?" Is roguelike a catch-all for games with randomly or procedurally generated levels now? What happened?

I want to like this game, I really do, tell me why I should keep playing it with ridiculous shit ruining otherwise good 20+ minute runs.

Maybe yous should avoid touching bats. Your death was a consequence of your fuck up. That's the rule for any actual roguelike, like it or not.

14/07/11(Fri)17:06 No. 142879 ID: 1b63c2

Not really. Most roguelikes have bullshit deaths. The point isn't to win, it's to see how far you can get under the circumstances that come up.

It harkens back to "You've been eaten by a grue."

14/07/21(Mon)14:49 No. 142910 ID: 857606

the reason for its popularity is due to the speed run and score run community afaik.

Also, while there may be some chance to it, I generally felt like I got better the more I played. And after a while I could reliably get to ice caves like a bad ass. Im sure if you keep playing you start doing hell runs, speed runs etc. Thats when it starts to become bullshit hard. If it didnt it would be no fun.

Most situations are perfectly avoidable with good planning. PERMA death from spikes and crushing blocks is debatable though.

So I was bored the other day and went to listen to some game OSTs and when I came back to Syphon Filter I realized how great there OSTs were and how consistently great they have been though out that whole series.

So /vg/ what are some game series you think have consistently good OSTs?

Do you guys like Bayonetta? Personally it was my favorite game this past generation, sadly I have a PS3 so I got the subpar port, but it still managed to be my favorite game. Excited as fuck for the sequel.

This is my second fav after NGB. Not as much replay value though. My wife cannot stand the repetitive jpop so I have to play on mute.

14/07/12(Sat)22:16 No. 142883 ID: 114d7c

Never played it but I'm glad they decided to bundle the original game with the Bayonetta 2, otherwise I probably wouldn't even be interested.

Anyone know of a terrafirmacraft minecraft server to play on that isn't advertised on the official TFC or MC forums? I'm looking to avoid a userbase with an average age of 14. Bonus points if you're able to host it.

I'm sure this is probably going to bring in bad new but.
So I just bought an acer 8735g with an nvidiagt240m and a intel 2 dual core processor, should I be worried about game play? I have a linksys e1200 router that clocks in at 5.6 Mbps down and 1.2 Mbps up. At 21-35 ping after 6 tests (with an outlier of 85 ping) I will be resetting the only other home computer so I can clear up some viruses after the laptop comes in.

I'm also planning on playing the new smash game for 3ds and playing project m on the smash boards.

How boned am I?

So we've had this IRC channel for setting up internet games for ages now but I'm such a lazy jerk and afraid of not introducing it in just the right way that I never make threads for it.

Check it out sometime if you wanna play some games with your fellow 7chan pals:

Emulated video game netplay is of particular interest to us but we play plenty of games native to other platforms too.
