>>664 That is really fucking good. Do you have more early 2000s arcade stuff to recommend? That specific period of time is quickly becoming a golden era for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUP_yAmJbNU (doesn't really fit the bill, but still)
>>684 I played the XX series religiously until Ishiwatari and the rest of AWS betrayed me with Xrd. Ishiwatari's music since Overture hasn't really impressed me, and I get the sense that he might have been a one-trick pony since most of his good themes really just stole riffs from classic heavy metal songs. Guilty Gear Isuka on the other hand has a great little original soundtrack that he had nothing to do with.

Why don't we hear about them more often? Theses OSTs were totally different than japanese ones for consoles at the same time, because of the technology but also in the composition. The MT-32 is my dream machine, I currently own a SC-88 that I used for Touhou and it was... something.

I've finally realized after many years of contemplation the perfect way to do skill checks and other things of that nature in video games: Present the player with a dice roll and then allow them to decide whether it works or not. Take the example of a pickpocket attempt that has a 50% chance of success. Typically what would happen is the player preforms the action and is then told whether it succeed or failed. If they don't like the results they reload. The New Way would involve the player preforming the action and then being presented with the resulting dice roll and themselves have to decide whether to play along or not. Trying to circumvent the players agency by meta punishing them with autosaving and things of that nature always struck me as futile and misguided(Also why I think karma system are bad but that's another story). I agree cheating is bad, but this way you can see the truth of why it is laid out in front of you. Its honest, and likely more engaging.
I'm afraid I don't understand your idea at all, OP. Can you articulate it clearer? Dice rolls for success or failure are one of the worst mechanics of all time ripped straight from tabletop role-playing stuff with poor pretensions about actually being games. The best solution is to take this shit mechanic and toss in the trash where it has always belonged. Random numbers for damage or whatever are fine, but critical success or failure mechanics should not be decided by dice rolls, period. The whole point of a game is to test one's skill for entertainment and these stupid mechanics have always flied in the face of that.

What is bunkerchan's opinion of Tom Nook from Animal Crossing? I've seen a lot of leftist argue that he deserves the bullet because he's a property owner, but others have said that in the game he gives away more than he could ever turn a profit from. Does this mean he gets a pass? I personally think Isabelle should be given critical support and usurp power from him at some point in time so that she could implement communal type measures after Nook industrializes the island using your labor, but it's almost as if the game is trying to say that Tom Nook is a necessary evil to get to modern communal living. The game doesn't really valorize his actions, either. He's a tanooki, and in Japanese folklore they are seen as tricksters by nature. In this way, he exists more as an anthropomorphized analog for the duplicity of the capitalist. Yet despite this, he also isn't as harsh as a modern capitalist might be. He doesn't tack on interest, have a set-in-stone timeline when you're supposed to pay him back, and won't ever repossess your home if you refuse to pay him. In this way, he represents more of the fantastical benevolent capitalist that Americans idealize. The only conclusion I've been able to come to is that the developers themselves are a bit confused about who Tom Nook really is.

Why the FUCK is it so expensive?! 80 entire USD for. Is it worth it? are there any other better less expensive autism simulators out there?
Bruh. Just pirate it? Also, it's because of supply and demand. Not that big an audience for this kind of game, and most of the audience is relatively rich (ie college educated suburban American dads), so they charge a high price to recoup investment.

Hello everyone, I am politely requesting some help from you guys to help me troubleshoot my Democracy 3 mod from several years ago. Unfortunately I have basically forgotten how to use the modding tools anymore and do not really know how to fix the problem, so I was looking for some advice. Would any of you be interested in helping me out? https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=268336783 This is the mod BTW, I have people who say it is working and people who say it isn't, so yeah idk. Obviously I will provide more details and so on once I apprise the situation better. Thanks all.

Let's discuss the shitshow that is TLOU2. Is the leaker right? Is the story shit? Personally I have always hated the first one and that the plot twists and turns that people hate so much in the sequel are a direct continuation of the extremely cringe and tryhard storytelling of the first one

>Is the story shit? Is the gameplay any good? Or do we just want our games to be shitty fucking movies now?
>>38 >What would be better would be to not mention Elle and Joel at all, say it is a new character in a sidequel, and then reveal that the character wanting to kill the two of them mid-way of the game. But this would completely omit the thematic parallel between Ellie and the new character looking for revenge. It sounds like you want the game to be more generic than try something not many other games do.
>>40 >thematic parallel between Ellie and the new character looking for revenge. So what? You can make different parallels, hell you can even make one with the side character traveling around the country piecing together what happened and tracking Elle down parallel their journey to the hospital. >be more generic than try something not many other games do. If it means making a more emotional cohesive and impactful story, sure. ND can't make these twists work because they want to make stupid shit like "thematic parallel between Ellie and the new character looking for revenge" rather than tell an emotional story first and then add themes to the general plot arc later.
>>41 You have no idea if it will be emotional or not - emotion comes from the detail and presentation, not a 5 sentence outline of the plot.
>>42 There wont be enough detail and presentation in the second half. > 5 sentence outline of the plot. I watched the scene where Joel got killed. It was cringe
