What is your favorite rootie tootie scroll 'em and shootie?

I've been enjoying a lot of Raizing games lately personally. Armed Police Batrider is probably my favorite among theirs.

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/?

I agree. I played platinum and diamond all day when I was younger. Then when Black and White came out, I kind of lost interest in it. All the new pokemon just weren't the same. I felt like they were really generic and meh.

>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.
True. While the game itself has improved, the Pokemon design has grown increasingly unappealing.
Not only the ridiculous shapes, but the designers seem to have completely lost their sense of color.

Gen 1 Pokemon have mostly very rounded shapes with few things that protrude out from their silhouette, with most of them looking sort of pudgy. The designs are not very "busy" and their different colors mostly blend in with each other well.
In Gen 2 they started adding exaggerated details that don't blend in naturally, while they also increased their use of contrasting and even clashing colors. More Pokemon were given stripes and other markings, and while all this succeeded in making the new Pokemon look unique, most of these designs are simply unappealing to me.

I gave Silver a playthrough back when I was 8 years old or so and I remember even then thinking that the designs were inferior to the first 151 and that the gameplay mechanics had not really changed enough to warrant a new game. When Gen 3 was released I glanced at a list of new Pokemon and decided quickly that I did not want it.
I took a quick look at the Pokemon from all generations while writing this post and I see all the general design changes I noticed in Gen 2 turned up to 11.
The creatures are getting skinnier bodies, longer limbs that taper inward like baseball bats, a bunch of accessories, furbait, a much darker color scheme and hard and pointy edges everywhere. Also there's a group of monkeys that look like they belong in a Sonic game.

Shortly after completing Silver I grew a hatred for grinding, so there's not a chance I would buy another Pokemon game. I did download Black (or White. I don't remember.) a while ago and as the core gameplay is largely unchanged I got bored by the second town. I realize that the games have been improved, but they're just not for me any more. Having heard about EV training and all that jazz has turned me even further away from the games because holy shit, I have better things to do, such as writing lengthy rants on 7chan. You know?

Oh hay thar /vg/ you may remember me as the guy who named ramza from FFT to "my penis" and another time as "my man meat"

I have returned. The game today is the pre-FF7 classic Wild ARMs.

as you can see i've named Ceclia "Cunt", rudy is "Fuck", and Jack is "Hitler.

BTW, andyone have a pdf/other digital version of the official strategy guide for this? it's $189 on amazon, so fuck that.

8chan has only existed for a couple of months, it isn't to blame. /vg/ has been slow for awhile, but other boards such as /be/ are getting even more posts. Other chans suffice for the lack of interest either with shitposting or making the interest boards more general.

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.

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?

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.)

Buy an amiibo, those fuckers find your weakness and exploit it to no end, it sometimes gets annoying but if you have no one to play with they can entertain you greatly.

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.

They are going insane from all sort of things. One my miners, dark space, unclean. Also being int he heat. I tried to get some AC in atleast the bedrooms, but ran out of materials, and just attempted to strip mine till i found some iron, with little to no luck. Most of the time, the insanity is things that are mainly unavoidable. I am not looking on how to prevent this, because I understand what the debuffs are for, and how to fix them, I am just curious about if there is something I can actively be doing to get their sanity up in a short amount of time, if things begin getting out of control. Or ways to prevent the insane from using up all my medical supplies >:C

15/02/05(Thu)22:34 No. 143781 ID: d2ef46

If your miners are going insane from dark space, you can forbid them from mining and have them work on other stuff. If your place is unclean, you can make it so that one of your colonists do nothing but clean by making cleaning their highest priority in the jobs screen.

Micromanaging the jobs is important in dire times.

It's not like you can go "oh shit my colonists are insane, I'll just have them do X action and make it better." It's more like "if I do this my colonists won't go insane later." You have to prevent it from happening in the first place by thinking ahead.

The hype was just too great for Smash Bros. Brawl. I think all but the most casual were disappointed in just the absolute downgrade when it came to gameplay.

Shit, even the graphical style doesn't even match Melee.

I still haven't even bothered with the demo of Smash 4 yet because Brawl was such a letdown.

Smash 4 is a big step up from Brawl, but still doesn't match Melee.

It's one of those RPG Maker horror games. It's called Ao Oni and it's shit. I dunno why people get freaked out by it. The scariest thing about the game is a purple hydrocephalic dude chases you really fast while high pitched music plays. Keep in mind that it's a 2D sprite with a shitty walking animation. There's not much to the game, you just walk around and solve puzzles until he chases you again. Then your friends turn into purple hydrocephalic people and chase you too. Total play time: 1-2 hours.

Give it a crack if you want. Don't expect much.
