>>195 I just found the story juvenile and edgy in a 12-y/o kind of way and the gameplay, while fairly fun when hanging with my friends, was nothing to really write home about. I think we can demand more from modern AAA vidya.
I've been playing Doom 2 (the original) off and on since this game's level design feels like a chore to get through. It's either stupid gimmicks or wide open areas with a ton of enemies, and I thought the latter levels in Doom 1 were annoying.
>>200 Sandy Petersen is the one to blame for the overly spacious and gimmicky maps. He still regularly gets shit for them.
>>200 Doom 2 is a much better creative platform than it is as a game, you should play an actually fun wad like Ancient Aliens or Stronghold
>>199 I don't know, I just finished Doom Eternal and enjoyed the retarded plot. It is pretty charming, probably because it specifically isn't trying to be ironic, and thus takes it self very seriously. The effect is the same as with the Room or any other example of a shitty story, however since it is Doom, the main problem of boredom is solved and you actually start wanting to see more retarded shit, since the more stupid it is, the more fun in gameplay will it be to experience: Why am I in space right now, and where did I get that knife from, fuck is even going on? Who gives a shit, let's shoot an angel robot in the head and make it rain in ammo.

>>291 They're not the same game,and not even the same genre. Stardew Valley is still better than the latest Harvest Moon tho.
gud gaem
I don't own the Switch, but watching videos of Animal Crossing I just never got the appeal. It seemed to be like Harvest Moon, only with a lot more repetitious tasks and annoying furries/childish cartoon characters. Harvest moon seems more fun, even if it's capitalist.
>>730 It's more of a Sims kinda game rather than Harvest Moon kinda game.
>>293 But it is still shittier than Rune Factory 4

Just listened to a bunch of old Sonic soundtracks and felt pretty nostalgic. Thought we could have a thread to sperg out about nostalgia. What old games from your childhood do you feel nostalgic about? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQhYFNqp4nE&t https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZXGzki_qww

>>253 You didn't miss anything, they're shitty games.
There aren't too many video games I feel nostalgia over, because I actually go back and play those old games regularly since they're still good and worth playing. Hard to build up nostalgia over something you play regularly. Megarace is practically the only one I can think of.

Real shit. >wut an STG STGs is another term for shoot 'em up/shmup (though typically used for Japanese made ones), all of which kick ass. >didnae die??? No, though we came close. STGs have been kept alive in no small part by doujins, which has led to such awesome games as Crimzon Clover, Blue Wish, Hellsinker, and Blue Revolver, and the players who have been documenting, replaying, and scoring since the early days. >gimme Blue Wish Resurrection is awesome and free: Plus: http://www.vector.co.jp/download/file/winnt/game/fh452584.html http://www.vector.co.jp/download/file/winnt/game/fh416461.html >2hu?

I'm a fan of Sora. Great controls and you don't die in one hit if you hit a bullet, but can dash over lasers (only if you hit missiles without dashing do you take damage.) Dashing raises your heat though which causes you to take more damage if you get hit later. There's actually a lot of depth, and I wish the creator would make a sequel instead of continuing to be a salary worker who also develops DLC for 100% Orange Juice in his free time. It feels like a waste of his talents.

Half-Life Anonymous Gamer 04/04/2020 (Sat) 17:02:32 No. 494 [Reply] [Last]
So in case you didn't hear about some of the stuff people have found digging through the files of Alyx but Half-Life 3 literally died for this game as in the assets for the cancelled Half-Life 3 game are still in Source 2's coding and even the weapons for the game are still packaged in the model files. Also it turns out Alyx is just a reworked Half-Life short story as people found the normal non-VR files for the game and it was just a tech demo that was 40 minutes long, the VR stuff was just slapped on and it was turned into a full game. TL;DR: Alyx is just the greedy cash grab on the Half-Life name we all knew it was and the proof was literally in the pudding.

>>501 >It's mostly a consequence of how it was necessary to plan for deathmatch and singleplayer in the same level, but it worked surprisingly well at times. It's not that surprising considering the nature of architecture. You're designing a space for people to traverse. If the purpose of the space is to get from point A to point B it's going to be boring unless you deliberately add complexity. If it's supposed to allow skirmishes with choke points and opportunities for flanking then you have to make the design more complex to suit those needs.
>>501 Half the plutonia maps were made by Dario Casali, who worked at valve since HL1 and likely was involved in the level design with Alyx too since hes was in the credits.
>>503 So you're saying he turned into a colossal hack?
>>503 Interesting, i didn't know he made maps for TF2 too.
One of the writers who retired from Valve gave us the story he had planned for Half Life 3 and explained why it never materialized. Basically Valve has too much anarchy, or they were too obsessed with making money from Steam and lost the ability to make games.

>>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.

>>335 you can actually use your mouse for one,but there is little feedback on most of the changes you make in it (direct feedback I mean,like there is no confirmation box,when you change something in a scrollbar,it changed,instantly) and everything is wrapped up in "windows 95" windowswhere you can change things through scrollbars,and the game is in pseudo real time,since you actually need yourself to move time forward to see the result of what you did. Maybe I'm making it sounds more difficult than it is,because even after watching somebody who knew what to do I'm still confused. Comparing it to DF is weird,since yes it's way easier to navigate,but you still have a shitton of menus to go through,going all the way to where you can just change the design of one type of missile of one of your ships (but that's not obligatory so it's fine). if you're not scared,go for it.
>>335 4X games are awful unless you are a complete nerd with all the time to waste in the world. stick to Dwarf Fortress.

we need a game that combines megaman and sonic. you play as metal sonic, your bossfights are all the characters in mania, and after each one you get their abilities. you can play the first half of zones in any order just as you can the second half.
