/v/ Debate of the century

Video games are for faggots.

Discuss.
R: 139 / I: 35

Co-op Spotlight: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite

I've been pretty bored as of late, so I've decided to give the Monster Hunter series a go and am having a blast, so I want to extend an invitation to anyone who may have an interest in the series to play cooperatively. This isn't really a Monster Hunter general, but if you want to talk about organizing something in, let's say, Iceborne, feel free.

>What do I need?

All you need is PPSSPP emulator, a gamepad, and the ISO file. The default network settings should have it connecting to myneighborsushicat.com, a community-ran server that allows you to play a variety of PSP games online. I'll provide links to what you need down below.

>I've never played it before. How's the game?

It's weird going in completely unfamiliar with the series, so I didn't know exactly what to expect. I started off trying Portable 3rd as per recommendation before switching to the first one and finally settling on Freedom Unite.

What surprised me the most is how little the core of the game has changed over the eight years the three games cover. It's all a little clunky, but once you adapt to it it's surprisingly fun. There are 11 distinct weapons classes that are reasonably well balanced so long as you read carefully and use the training mode. Some are more technical than others but it's not too overwhelming to go from one weapon class to another. It's very preparation focused and the game gives you the necessary tools to be reasonably prepared. Progression is really dependent on your pace and experience, so generally It has clear Japanese influence, but it doesn't feel anything like a JRPG if you were concerned of that.

One of the things I have yet to try out but would like to is the co-op. It's clearly designed to be played cooperatively. There are a few players that I see appear from time to time, but I have yet to play with any of them. You select which room you want to be in with each room supporting up to four players. I won't be online for a bit, but I insist that you get started even if you're just trying it out.

THIS WEEK THERE ARE 32 SLOTS AND 6 CAN BE USED FOR NON VIDYA
• Every week you can fill a slot with one character per ID. All but sixteen of these slots must be filled by videogame characters. All slots are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
• If a character or character(s) has been nominated three times in a row, (Even within the same mania) it is not eligible for nomination for 2 more manias. You can find a list of nominations in the most recent mania article on the 8chanmania wiki.
What counts as a “videogame character”?
- Any character who you can access and originated in a “videogame” without using any form of character creator; this includes characters that must be accessed via a character creator but have a ‘default appearance’ that you do not have to personalize to proceed.
- If a character can be accessed in a “videogame” but did not originate in a “videogame”, it must have had a substantial role in at least 5 games to qualify for a “videogame character” slot OR known almost exclusively for their videogame appearances. The first would be Goku and the second would be Pepsiman.
- “Videogame” includes only actual videogames. This does not include “choose your own adventure” visual novels, but it can include visual novels with substantial game components, such as “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney”.
——————
• Apathy Clause: Unimportant real-life or virtual persons are not valid for nomination, even in a non-videogames slot. This means that you cannot nominate a person in chat, including and especially TNAanon, who is the host. This does not apply to notable public figures or characters that could pose an interesting plot.
• Endless Battle Clause: This is a tournament and every fighter must play to win. Deliberately stalling out a match will not be tolerated unless it produces a roughly fifty-percent win-rate in the lowest amount of time necessary to do so as a valid strategy. Edits that are found to stall matches ineffectually ```will``` be edited.
•GrandFather Clause: If a character starts as vidya or non vidya, they will stay in their designated category, regardless of any character arcs created within 8chanmania.

Moving our booru

The owner of Infinity-Booru is MIA, meaning no new users on the site can apply since applications are locked. This has led to a massive bottleneck, with only a few anons at a time adding pictures and even fewer anons tagging.
https://8-booru.booru.org/index.php
A proposed Idea is to start fresh and re-upload our pictures onto a new booru to re-open user access. A new host-site for our drawfag oc hasn't been decided as far as I know, so I decided to make a thread about it.

This isn't really an issue for just /v/ but for the 8chan diaspora as a whole, but since there's no real meta board, I've decided to make a thread here. So, is this a good idea, and how ca we be sure this next booru won't be a dead backdoored honeypot?

Lineage II - Desperate Ambition edition

COME PLAY A RARE VARIETY OF MMO THAT'S (MOSTLY) NOT SHIT WITH US


>What is it?


The product of Richard Garriott's and NCSoft's efforts back in 2003. Base game was locked behind a subscription and contained only a limited amount of content, but as time went on, this was remedied through expansion packs. At one point in a development process, the game's balance was fucked up VERY hard, so the consensus between what players there are left is that it's better to play on earlier versions of the game. We are playing on a Classic version of the game, which close to base game as it was released, but not quite.

Server, in which we're playing right now is infested with Brazillians, Chinese and Russians, as it is often the case with free MMOs.

>Why play this? Everybody knows that all theme park MMOs are dogshit and EVE is boomer central/spreadsheet simulator/goonhive.


This game is rather unique in that while the base game is a themepark MMO, it forces people to play together to survive in the vast wilderness of the grinding fields - killing people and getting killed in turn is very easy if you have shit gear for your level and even with good gear it is still easy. Every death is a static -4% EXP penalty and on the later levels, generic monsters will only give out around 0.05% of your EXP bar. Quests are more or less useless in that regard, so fast-paced party grinding is the order of the day.

Top spots for grinding and money-making on top levels, however, are usually strictly occupied by powerful clans leveling in big parties that will kill you and take no prisoners in order to rake gigantic amounts of money in materials and make their +10 overenchanted staves into +12 ones. Some of them are not unreasonable and/or Brazillian and can be negotiated with, however. With proper funding made from excessive amounts of grind, it is possible for anons to gather one big party and apply copious amounts of strategy to find out ways to better kill the enemy without dying ourselves. The last part is as far as we got before the clan fell apart because I had to quit because of IRL issues and things died to attrition.

Even so, it's fun to grind things together and kill other fags together.

>Shieet nigga, how does the game work?


Download a client, make an account on the server - feel free to use temporary e-mail, it doesn't care - make a character and play the game. Using the wiki will be more or less required to learn specific mob loot tables and how to complete class transfer quests. After making a character, either post the IGN in the thread or add one of our clanmates below to friends list. We'll invite you to clan then.

If you want to find out what each class is good at in advance, below are some helpful links to the skill lists. Take note that wiki is not exactly completely accurate because this server is running a different version of Classic from the official one.

There are very few characters I actually want in Smash now, but if I had to have anyone it would be either Neku from TWEWY or Dante from DMC. Both of which I want mostly for the music they would come with.

>desperate for a new game to play
>try Fallout 4 for the first time

>game design is completely at odds with the survival mode, 1 hit kill land mines placed in the middle of random roads and forests and strapped onto rats that spawn under your feet, random enemies in early areas shoot at you with laser machine guns and mini nukes and the aggroing is buggy as shit so you have no way to safely find out if someone is hostile
>can't walk 5 seconds without running into some kind of hostile raider or ogre setup
>every time something goes wrong you lose all progress since last save in survival, including all your base building and crafting and levelups and favorited item setups
>install mods to try to fix some things
>it's now even more buggy
>game soft locks when you enter power armor, game soft locks when you click an object the wrong way, game soft locks if you look at it wrong, all progress lost once again
I even tried to avoid anything to do with story thinking it would make the game better, but that doesn't fix shit.

What item hoarding survival game can I play to forget about this piece of shit I wasted my weekend on? New Vegas is just as buggy and I'd have to install too many mods to fix all the crashing and other gripes I have with it.

NISA confirmed to be ruining CS3 localization with political and leftist bullshit insertion

posting here as well as 8kun for max coverage, spread this shit around if you can.
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/536164003?t=01h00m10s
Linking here because embed isn't working for some reason
This is a NISA stream of CS3 where they answer questions. These people's titles are Editing Overlord and Project Overlord respectively. The soyboy is the senior and lead editor then, and the woman is the Project Lead/Lead Translator. Basically 2 people with notable seniority levels.

I haven't watched the whole stream (after speeding through 2/3 of it it seems like advertising/announcements/giveaway shit for their other games), but this part at 1:01:10 onwards has been sticking out to people.

>Whether its a joke or not, we have to make sure that all the text makes sense in the culture

>Sometimes the Japanese jokes will be of different values than we do
>We try to work around things that might be a liiiiiittle sexist in Japanese and try to make it culturally appropriate for our audiences
"How often do you keep in touch with Falcom during the localization?"
>We don't keep much in contact with them when handling the text

"Are there any edits or localization you're particularly proud of?"
>Self-assertion panels
>For anyone who doesn't know, those are like DLC speech bubbles that are like, cosmetic equipment
>In the original japanese, they were silly, but.. they didn't really resonate
>so we decided, let's make them a bunch of Trails memes. ("Let's be self-aware about them!")

tl;dr they are inserting memes, and changing dialogue and jokes for "cultural appropriateness" because sexism is bad and the Japanese aren't funny.

People should clip this part and spread them around on twitter or whatever social media you can tolerate using for the purpose of spreading this shit.

They were also complaining about how difficult it was because of complex vocabulary, terms, and "Fancy speaking" of certain characters, so many proper nouns, and "correct what they were saying" implying they weren't able to handle it all successfully. Happens around 46 minutes or so. They qualify by saying "that's what makes it fun" and "getting lost in the lore" (bad choice of words for people completely new to the franchise and also fucking screwed up on their marketing material for the game) but I have my doubts about anything that sounds even remotely positive for them; just sounds like PR.

They lacked knowledge on trails lore and did a "lore bootcamp", but only some actually played trails cold steel 1 and 2, and didn't even necessarily even play sky or crossbell, often just "reading up on it" like the project coordinator/lead translator said she did. Happens around 53-55 minutes or so.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1djiC4DQ-yrCRN4tscIhbbhJpzuNy0zfd/view

Start time:
NOW
or I'll wait about an hour and let anons get a download going. The game is pretty small, 2 and a half gigs so it shouldn't be to painful to download.
I will respond in this thread with a room name and password.

Saturday and Sunday we'll be running during the day, but I may have to switch off with somebody else.
The S4Max community runs its own server so you guys should be fine without me.
I'll make sure there is someone who can make the room if I'm out.

How to set up:
Just run the executable and it'll do its thing. Once you're in you can choose a username and password and then you'll be set.
See pic related for a guide on what to equip. Play some tutorials, there's one general tutorial (on the lobby page), and a tutorial for each weapon class (in the shop).

How do I play it

S4 League is a weaboo arena third-person-shooter with gimmicks. Mechanics are fairly straightforward run, jump, and shoot.
The only unusual mechanic is wall jumping. It's essential for moving quickly, and you'll get used to it from practice. It works by leaping toward a wall and then turning your screen in the direction you want to jump.
There are three specific game modes that we'll be playing:
There are also skills you can get such as a wall to block incoming fire, wings, a sweet grappling hook that others will call you a scrub for and some other stuff. There are also a few different weapon classes like shotguns, melee weapons with different properties, and healing guns. After you get the basics try some other guns out to see what you like.

>Battle Royale: Just kill people.

>Deathmatch: Just kill people but ignore half of them.
>Touchdown: The real game. Sportsball with guns.

The rules for touchdown aren't too complicated, it's just like an ordinary sport with a ball and a goal.
Here's a handy set of instructions for what you should be doing.

Guide to Offense:
>Step 1: Get the ball.
>Step 2: Run behind enemy lines.
>Step 3: Don't get killed. (Otherwise goto 1)
>Step 4: Score in the opponent's goal.

Guide to Defense:
>Step 1. Just kill people.

But specifically kill the person who has the ball.
They will have a giant beam of light over their head.
Use that to keep an eye on how much of a threat they are.

NIHON FALCOM THREAD: Bunker Edition

Who knows when or if we'll get back to 8chan, so for now let's have a comfy Falcom thread in the bunker

>Latest News

-Ys IX is slated to release in Japan on September 26th. As of now, there are no official announcements regarding localization, though given the current state of things, it seems likely to be handled by NISA again. The trailer can be viewed here: https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=2GxGq3EFzu8
-Trails of Cold Steel III's English release has been delayed until October 22, 2019. The stated reason to launch in a less competitive timeframe.
-Trails of Cold Steel 1 and 2 have been released for the PS4. They feature most of the quality of life improvements from the PC version.
-On January 17th, 2019 NISA formally announced they had acquired the rights to the Trails series (and likely has had them for some time) and would be releasing Cold Steel 3 in fall of 2019 for the PS4 (no other platforms have been announced so far).
-The PC versions of Cold Steel 1 and 2 had dual audio patched in, so as long as you are able to update your game an undub is no longer necessary if you want to play it with Japanese audio.

>Fan-translations

>Trails from Zero at 90%+ (being edited by Geofront/Zerk). There is already a beta (as in a rough translation done before Zerk even started working on it) out, though the quality is on the low side, though still coherent from start to finish

The Rhea's gonna be available for order in about 10 hours, for those who don't want to wait for alternative options and don't mind giving autists money. I understand this is shilling either way, so might as well make it a general Saturn thread, at least. I don't have any charts on me, and given that Linkle Liver Story wasn't on the most recent chart I saw last, I assume that it's outdated anyway.
What games are must-haves, aside from Panzer Dragoon, all the Cave games, and Castlevania Symphony of the Night if Maria Mode is actually worth it? Any new fan translations released lately? Are you still holding out for the Satiator, or just sticking to Pseudo Saturn and burned CDs?

Mark, a known spammer got his entries on the webring. You can mitigate by doing either:
- Going to the webring folder, and running "curl https://gitlab.com/Tenicu/infinityaddon-webring/raw/master/webring/buildring.php > buildring.php"
- Going to the webring folder, and running "git stash && git pull && git stash pop"
Once you do this, the entries will be removed and the webring addon will be more resilient to such attacks.

8CHANMANIA 11 NOM THREAD

```THIS WEEK THERE ARE 31 SLOTS AND 6 CAN BE USED FOR NON VIDYA```
```SECOND CHANCE MANIA: YOU CAN ONLY NOMINATE WRESTLERS FROM THIS SEASON!```
• Every week you can fill a slot with one character per ID. All but sixteen of these slots must be filled by videogame characters. All slots are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
• If a character or character(s) has been nominated three times in a row, (Even within the same mania) it is not eligible for nomination for 2 more manias. You can find a list of nominations in the most recent mania article on the 8chanmania wiki.
What counts as a “videogame character”?
- Any character who you can access and originated in a “videogame” without using any form of character creator; this includes characters that must be accessed via a character creator but have a ‘default appearance’ that you do not have to personalize to proceed.
- If a character can be accessed in a “videogame” but did not originate in a “videogame”, it must have had a substantial role in at least 5 games to qualify for a “videogame character” slot OR known almost exclusively for their videogame appearances. The first would be Goku and the second would be Pepsiman.
- “Videogame” includes only actual videogames. This does not include “choose your own adventure” visual novels, but it can include visual novels with substantial game components, such as “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney”.
——————
• Apathy Clause: Unimportant real-life or virtual persons are not valid for nomination, even in a non-videogames slot. This means that you cannot nominate a person in chat, including and especially TNAanon, who is the host. This does not apply to notable public figures or characters that could pose an interesting plot.
• Endless Battle Clause: This is a tournament and every fighter must play to win. Deliberately stalling out a match will not be tolerated unless it produces a roughly fifty-percent win-rate in the lowest amount of time necessary to do so as a valid strategy. Edits that are found to stall matches ineffectually ```will``` be edited.
•GrandFather Clause: If a character starts as vidya or non vidya, they will stay in their designated category, regardless of any character arcs created within 8chanmania.

Bloodstained.

Why does the switch version keep crashing? I swear its a 50/50 chance whenever i use a bookshelf in game that it crashes the entire game. Other than that the game is pretty fucking sweet but i am really regretting getting the switch version. The fucking gamestop clerk even warned me that this was the worst version but I thought "eh I can deal with slowdowns n shit" but I wasn't expecting the game to crash all the time.

The worst part is that I have already spent like 3-4 hours and defeated the first 2 bosses ( I know I am shit at video games) so I have to go all the way up to the store to return it and then go home and get the PC version only to redo all the shit I have already done.

Should I even bother or is the PC version just as bad?

How many of you were good goys and not only bought the game, but the DLC too? It fucking hurts seeing I series I loved so much as a kid degrade like this. (At least the games haven't jewed as hard as Star Wars yet.)

The distance coefficient of delivering goods makes it so that every station I service in between my two lucrative cities actually lowers my raw income quite a lot.

AI Dungeon thread

AI Dungeon 2 is a text-based adventure game where you play with an AI dungeon master creating a story together based either of a randomly generated or a custom prompt. It is pretty consistent, and although you need an account to play, it is also free to play.

https://www.aidungeon.io/

Let's share some of the stories we got, the game automatically saves all of the stories you have made, but you can delete them immediately after, or publish them in-game. If you never publish them, they are kept as private.
The game no longer crashes all the time.
It also has the capabilities of producing text-porn.

mechwarrior 5 mercs

Free copies on the house, thanks Tim.
Anyone else playing? It was cracked about 30 minutes after it dropped, Ill probably seed more when I get home.

What a janky pile of shit. Some assests look like there were made in unity, flat texture with rounded edges.
The mechs feels kinda floaty at times. The VA work and story is laughable. It runs like shit. There is no environmental damage from guns on the ground besides trees, grass, and buildings, the living legends mod has that even if it does fade shorty after.
A lot of the missions are procedurally generated so there are issues with mechs and tanks spawning near you.
No active passive radar. No changing the engine, enjoy your slowass mech.
The AI gets stuck on shit but I haven't had issues with my lancemates yet.
I'm enjoying it because its been so long since a proper Mechwarrior game but what a joke. No wonder they pushed back the date, this thing JUST finished.
The only big hope I have for it are mods which PGI said they don't care about they know fags are going to mod it. I really hope someone takes time to polish this turd.

AI WAR: FLEET COMMAND GAME NIGHT

LEAD HUMANITY INTO VICTORY OVER IMPOSING AI OVERLORDS

AI War: Fleet Command is a mix of RTS, grand strategy and tower defense that takes place in a space setting. The objective is to defeat two AI's by conquering their homeworlds and simultaneously trying to NOT DIE as both AI's attempt to flood your planets with massive enemy fleets.

>Why play it?

AI opponents have a shared difficulty score that affects how hard it rapes players - the more it has, the more ships will come to invade with every wave, the more advanced they'll be, etc. It can be adjusted by not destroying certain AI structures, not letting AI destroy some of your structures and planning out conquests. The way difficulty works makes it more of a puzzle than a normal rts.
This game has a massive amount of expansions, which increases it's replay value massively. The AI's adapt and can figure out ways to fuck up your designated chokepoint if players let it do so. It has numerous difficulty settings - everything below 7 is easymodo, 7 is average, 8 is challenging, 9 is very challenging and 10 is designed to be unwinnable. It also has different types related to it that can be set at the start of the game - Speed Racer AI's ship speed is cranked up, Fortress King has massive fuckoff fortresses on almost every planet, there are tons of those to choose from.
There are also Plots related to the contents of the game, such as Golems, Astro Trains et cetera. Just know that there is a lot of content to the game.

ITS THAT TIME AGAIN
Yes its time squeeze kobolds, kill sexy ogres for their hotpants, drink dragonmilk, starve to death in the overworld, get your new pet chain killed in the same dungeon over and over, come back to the the game a year later and forget what you were doing, and raise littleboys in a ranch.

>what the fuck is this

A jap roguelike with an overworld, no permadeath, and a bunch of sandbox elements. Its tough to nail down. Can be played a ton of different ways like being a farmer who grows crops and magical items, a piano player who gets stoned to death, a valiant warrior who breaths fire, a magical caster who can nuke the entire map and then explode from overcasting, or just be charismatic as fuck and get lots of pets. It can be a bit challenging at first but the game is much nicer to new players then it used to be.

>What about elona custom?

Elona custom was a mod to the mod of plus.
>"Elona+ Custom (aka E+C) is an addon mod to Elona+.
It aims to provide more and better translation to the game, while also introducing a few features meant to serve as quality of life options."

Its dead in the water right now due to the new maintainer getting busy with real life but it looks like hes trying to whip something up to make it easier to change to new versions.
Then there is Custom G which is like an addon to the addon's addon. And it adds some more QoL shit too as well as undoing some changes. It can only be used with the same version of custom if you decide to use it on an older build.

>Elona Omake Overhaul

Another offshoot of Elona made by some nerd. I haven't played a ton. Much more difficult due to being based on older Elona difficulty. Their are perks to become a better whore though so money is never far away as long as you have loose morals. It only includes the first act but it can be something different if you want more Elona. It has a lot of new features like factions, The Knights of the LittleGirls, and a qt rival you can fuck. Worth checking out.

Playing video games makes me depressed because despite my best intentions, I can never find a Game I can enjoy. I like to spend the time after work (4-6hrs) and my weekends playing vidya, but I can never find any fulfillment in it. I have tried for years to find a multiplayer game I can both enjoy for hours on end and not get burned out of / pubstomped into rage quitting. Why can't I just find a chill game to play & relax after work? I really just want to find "that game" and even at 30, I still haven't found it yet.

Hey /v/, you're invited to this years end of the year stream, an excerpt from the /bmn/ thread:

It's that time of year again. Nearly time for the year to end itself, not unlike the films it's seen being fed to the Shredder. It's been a chaotic year for the lot of us, to put it extremely mildly. Hopefully the new year will be tolerable at least, but enough talk about tolerance. Lets talk about intolerable films.
It's been a hell of a year for the shredder's diet. Awful taste, 0 calories. I think 2019 has had the most shreds in the history of this show; not many films made it to the pile this year. As a result, the BMN zodiac that was started on 2018's year end (Vampire Year), is pretty much dead in the water without a clear pattern from the Pile's additions. Perhaps 2019 should be the year of death. Certainly would be fitting for 8chan's fate.

A chaotic year, but we're still here. Get your snacks, your booze, and let's kick back and enjoy some the best of BMN from this year, with a couple revisits from years prior.

Tonight's setlist:

Dollman
Robot Wars
Paparazzi
Los Bravos
Final Spawn (Dying God)

No Man's Sky in 2020

I remember the garbage fire that this game was from it's E3 2014 hype train inception to it's explosive diarrhea of a release in 2016. And as much fun as it was to watch it burn like TORtanic, after 4 years, it has actually changed.
Basically, Sean Murray managed to win back the pissed off consumers that were foaming at the mouth for a refund by pulling the rare industry move of releasing numerous free updates. He added actual multiplayer, he added VR, he added content that he didn't deliver upon release.
Now of course it will be impossible to ever disregard the existence of its colossal colonoscopy of a launch day, but the game now IS actually what it was once promised to be. And he is still releasing free big updates that would otherwise be sold as DLCs by EA or Activision. Not saying consider buying it but would you be willing to at least change your opinion on the game now?
I think the problem with this game is that it basically made buyers wait 4 years for it to be finished. But at what point would you be willing to look back at a recently improved title that was previously shriveled away by notoriety?

Magic in games

What games have cool magic systems that either make me feel like real mage researching shit that can reshape the fucking world, or at the very least give me the feeling of being a powerful battlemage which can cast powerful spells to devestate his enemies.

I personally really like modding Minecraft for this purpose with mods like Thaumcraft so I can fuck around gathering materials and researching shit like that.

Any games give feeling of being an actual wizard? Necromancers are cool too

PC Controller

Hey /v/, first of all, happy new year, may this be the one where the Day of the Stairs draws near.
Secondly, my bootleg ps3/pc controller got busted and I'd really like to find some model or two that could replace it. I'm not really the kind of guy who wants top of the line performance, since it's mostly used for retro games, but I'd really like a controller where all buttons/dpad/analogs feel smooth to press and fidget with, I can't tell you how many controllers I've tried worked perfectly well but had terribly sturdy buttons. I'm also vehemently against bluetooth controllers because of always forgetting about turning the damn things off once I'm done playing, so if it's cabled or with usb support, all the better.

New PMD Remake Demo

The prospect of new PMD games is exciting, but I have some concerns that the series will end up in a similar place as the Paper Mario games based on this demo. I'm unsure if I want to support it as a message that I want more good PMD games or to not support it as a way of saying that I don't like the gameplay simplifications.
Overall, these were my first impressions

>THE GOOD

- I like the new artstyle. It's very close to what I imagined the game could look like based on the old art. I'd say it's a few resolution increases away from looking amazing, but good as is. As an aside to this, the animations seem significantly better than anything in SW/SH.
- The music remasters I've heard all sound at least as good as the original, if not better. I have no complaints on this front.
- There are several major QoL changes, such as the diglett tunnel, fewer load screens, boxes opening at the end of dungeons, etc.
- The dialogue is intact from the original games.
- Increased team limit of 8 seems promising.

>THE BAD

- Basic attacks are gone. Pressing the attack button automatically selects the best move to use and auto targets a nearby enemy. Losing this means the ability to waste turns is very limited in comparison to previous games.
- Freely changing the direction you're facing is gone. Since enemies are auto-targeted now, this option has been removed.
- The new makuhita dojo is absurdly powerful. I used one gold ticket and raised the protagonist from level 6 to 12.
- The game showers you with money and items. In the 45 minutes it took me to beat the demo, I got 4 tiny reviver seeds and enough money to buy one of the more expensive TMs. The most expensive item I saw for sale was a Hyper Beam TM that only cost around 2100 Poke.

>THE ???

- Starter mons begin with 4 good moves. While it's nice to have more options at the beginning, it makes a lot of the early level-up moves completely pointless.
- An auto-explore function has been added. I've seen this work well in other roguelikes, but it's poorly implemented in this game. In conjunction with the new combat targeting mechanics, you can play through the majority of the dungeons just pressing two buttons.

With a few changes, this could be an amazing remake. My biggest concern is that they won't keep the difficulty of the original games intact, which was one of my favorite aspects of the series. Hopefully the game either gets harder as it progresses and my concerns are misplaced or some changes are made to bring it more in line with the originals.

Anon's bizarre vidya adventure AKA /v/ makes an RPG maker game: #013.5

I HAVE FUCKED UP AND NOW I CAN'T USE ZERONET ON TOR TO POST MY UPDATE EDITION
We’re creating a video game in RPG Maker VX Ace together with other anons.
Here’s how it works.
Everyone is taking turns downloading the newest version of the game, making contributions before reuploading it for someone else to work on it. Only one person can actively work on it at a time. This is because if two people make overlapping changes to the database, scripts or switches, they will conflict resulting in one person having to redo all their work. Changes to the map and events can be copy-pasted from one version of a project to another so you’re free to work on new maps and new events if its not your turn and add them to the current version of the game once it is your turn.
It should work like this. OP posts newest version of the map. The first person (Anon #1) to respond to OP stating that he’s going to work on it becomes the active game dev. Once Anon #1 finishes and re-uploads it, the first person to respond to him gets to work on it. So on and so forth. Additionally, whenever you re-upload a new version, reply to the anchor post, it’ll make things a lot easier.
General Rules
>Don’t mess with maps, events or anything else you didn’t make. Although, adding minor stuff like a connection between two areas or fixing bugs and typos is all fine.
>If you’re ok with others editing your stuff, leave a note saying so.
>You’re free to add characters and the like, to the inter-dimensional tavern.
>You’re also free to make changes to game settings, unless its something we’ve agreed upon (we’ll probably do this via a poll)
>We also have a dedicated board now >>>/bizarre/ come post and check it out! (The exact way we use, and the general purpose of the board in relation to the threads on /v/ will probably change change over time. However there will
always be threads maintained on /v/, regardless of what happens on the board.)

Ninty goes after the Sword/Shield Whistleblower who leaked the info that Game Freak was lying

>The Pokemon Company has reportedly been granted the ability to move forward with a subpoena on 4chan to find out the identity of the person who leaked the Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield content, which resulted in a public backlash against developer Game Freak, the makers of the Pokemon titles.
>Why is the Pokemon Company so riled up over these leaks? Well, it’s because it was discovered that a lot of the claims leading up to the release of the games on the Nintendo Switch about why there were fewer Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield didn’t quite hold up under scrutiny.
>This resulted in social media trends claiming that Game Freak lied and that Pokemon Sword and Shield were cash grabs by the Pokemon Company and Nintendo.
>Now the Pokemon Company is firing back by going after the people who allegedly leaked the details and made it public for consumers to be informed about what was going on behind the scenes for the two games.

Basically they're going after cuckchannel and (((Discord))), getting ready to scour them for this dude. We might get to see just how ready to turn over user info and how easy it is to identify and find an individual poster/user on these places when a mega-corp is after someone. All for fucking pokemon. I hope none of you faggots bought this shit, on an unrelated personal note.

Video Games Not Fun Anymore

As of the last few days now, video games don't really have an appeal to me. I've stopped having the motivation to boot most of them up, and the ones I do usually get up being meh and quit within a half hour. I have plenty of books and movies, but I lack the motivation to do anything with those either. Am I just old or do all games just becomes the same with a different paint coat and story after you've played enough?

Also, because I've been unsuccessful as of yet, anyone have the email of CodeMonkey? I've tried two and both have returned failed to send messages.

Migration/Meta

Tor posting now appears completely broken on 8kun.
>Mark shutting down the bunker in a couple months
>8kun unusable for many people
Let's discuss where people who would rather not use 8kun but still want to shit-post on /v/ together should migrate since Mark is shutting this place down one way or another. The choices at the moment appear to be between smug/vg/, which comes with the weird rules they impose, Julay/v/ which seems fine enough, or another site entirely and forming a new board there (anon.cafe, etc.). Or someone makes an independent new site specifically for /v/ and links it into the webring, though I very much doubt anyone would do this.

Considering this is merely a temporary bunker and PPH are dwindling by the day as people leave for 8kun, there's no actual reason for Mark to delete this thread :^).

Right now things are quit scatted and hectic with people cross-posting the same threads and same posts across 3 separate boards. I think coming to a conclusion on the future of /v/ within the webring would help to ease this awkward process. People have a pretty natural aversion to 8kun and staying within the webring is in my opinion, quite ideal.

• Every week you can fill a slot with one character per ID. All but sixteen of these slots must be filled by videogame characters. All slots are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
• If a character or character(s) has been nominated three times in a row, (Even within the same mania) it is not eligible for nomination for 2 more manias. You can find a list of nominations in the most recent mania article on the 8chanmania wiki.
What counts as a “videogame character”?
- Any character who you can access and originated in a “videogame” without using any form of character creator; this includes characters that must be accessed via a character creator but have a ‘default appearance’ that you do not have to personalize to proceed.
- If a character can be accessed in a “videogame” but did not originate in a “videogame”, it must have had a substantial role in at least 5 games to qualify for a “videogame character” slot OR known almost exclusively for their videogame appearances. The first would be Goku and the second would be Pepsiman.
- “Videogame” includes only actual videogames. This does not include “choose your own adventure” visual novels, but it can include visual novels with substantial game components, such as “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney”.
——————
• Apathy Clause: Unimportant real-life or virtual persons are not valid for nomination, even in a non-videogames slot. This means that you cannot nominate a person in chat, including and especially TNAanon, who is the host. This does not apply to notable public figures or characters that could pose an interesting plot.
• Endless Battle Clause: This is a tournament and every fighter must play to win. Deliberately stalling out a match will not be tolerated unless it produces a roughly fifty-percent win-rate in the lowest amount of time necessary to do so as a valid strategy. Edits that are found to stall matches ineffectually ```will``` be edited.
•GrandFather Clause: If a character starts as vidya or non vidya, they will stay in their designated category, regardless of any character arcs created within 8chanmania.

Home Computers Thread

Seeing how the new C64 Plug n' Play just came out,
I thought it'd be appropriate to make a thread dedicated to the home micros of olde.
Post your favourite games, experiences from back in the day, argue over which machine's games were better and the like.
By the way, does an infographic of recommended games for the Commodore 64 exist in the same vein as those for other systems that are posted every now and then?

Create your own Speedrunnersona

It is the year 20xx. You've just taken your daily government enforced HRT pills, and then readjust your dilator. You notice a few drops of blood running down it. 'It's mostly likely just menstrual blood' you think to yourself. After shoving a tampon up your anal cavity you take a look at the mirror. What do you see?
