Any elden ring enjoyers? Looking to play with people online do co-op and stuff.

They’re not profitable
They’re not good no none of them are fun at all especially not in comparison to single player coop games
And they’re also outdated mechanically and literally considering how old the genre is


Outside of how fucking retarded companies like nexon, blizzard, Amazon, and BioWare are there’s legitimate reasons for why this genre seriously should’ve went the way of club penguin at this point and it’s that MMOs have stayed functionally the same since EverQuest 2 was a thing. I mean the closest thing you have to a “modern” level example of these games is new world because it has collisions and basic as shit combat mechanics you’d see in action games from over a decade ago, rather than the lazily shoehorned tab target spam keys to win nonsense you’d have fun with on your dads shitty probably broken janky as shit pc you’d use in your kid years and those aspects of that game are still badly implemented and complained about to this day


There’s no fucking hope for these games even the technically popular MMOs like WoW and ff14 struggle to maintain server counts that aren’t community servers(or the fact that some of their servers are shutting down completely) and any attempt at a revolutionary change that’ll bring what’s seen everywhere else in gaming to the mmo seen in Asian countries is laughably bad or insidiously implemented with layers and layers of microtransactions like BDO. I don’t get why there’s still whales for these trash games when there’s so much else to play you could be having fun with that don’t require an entire communities worth of people to pair up with(ignoring how most people that played these games have already moved on to other aspects of their lives)


I don’t understand this at all at how long they’ve lives

Moreso, Bethesda cooperated with Valve at their first attempt with the same revenue rate. The only reason why the whole mod shop thing went down is because Valve wanted to handily shift the blame onto Bethesda as the modders began to disagree with how shit the payment is and started to withdraw from Steam Workshop.

You could convert Linden dollars back into USD though, that was the whole point.

I just installed Return of Reckoning, which is a fan-operated revival of Warhammer Online. Very old-school, it has a charm to it, makes me nostalgic about playing WoW for the first time, which was my first and only MMORPG. I play it with no regard for optimality, just doing whatever is fun, questing in area greatly under my level because I want to finish questline and occasionally visit battleground for PvP.

RoR feels so clunky but I love the old world Warhammer fantasy stuff. I wish we could get a new MMO based off of Warhammer Fantasy.

after 9 years, now that the M.O.O.N - Dust have settled, what even happened in the hotline Miami universe? I still have so many questions, like How did the USSR despite being in an ass position in the late 80s, overpower Burgerstan and its allies?

Retroarch for everything or standalone for some stuff?
How do you #retrogame?

I like beauty, customization and ease of use but also understand how much performance and smoothness matters

So which systems you shouldn't go for a retroarch core and download the standalones?

Also, please post your setups and how you decide the play old games

Ah fuck, they got Citra too? Well then, RIP every game that was on the 3DS eShop before it got discontinued

 

>>33980
Pretty sure they don't give a fuck about anyone playing their games or not, as long as they get paid, Nintendo is truly one of the most malicious and greedy companies out there

And Mario is a boring fucking character

 

>>33980
Ryujinx is still up, so you can still play switch games if you want. Shame about Citra though, I don't think there was an alternative for 3ds games.

I only used retroarch for emulation on my phone. I need to read a guide about which of the codecs or whatever they're called I'm supposed to use because half of them seem to not work with half the roms.

Honestly Bannerlord is an exemplary sequel. It kept all the great things about Warband and either improved on them (especially graphics and UI/quality of life) or simply gave us more content (bigger map, more factions, more mechanics like civil wars and rebellions etc).

Hm, gaming in Syria doesn't look that bad.

Meanwhile, SEGA fucks game modders over by adding DRM.

Anybody every use the Diplomacy mod for Bannerlord? It adds a lot more depth to diplomacy and politics like military alliances, non-aggression pacts, coups, secessions, and civil wars. However sometimes it produces some wacky shit like here where some clans seceded from the Northern Empire to form a new kingdom, and then some more clans seceded from the secessionist kingdom producing this monstrosity.

it's kind of sad how much money AAA devs pour into tiny improvements in graphics when there's barely any blood left to be squeezed out of that stone. This game for example is 20 years old. 2004. I played it as a teenager. Now compare that with 1984, 20 years before that. A world of difference. But this game holds up graphically after 20 years because everything since then is just slight improvements to textures and shaders and poly count, and changes in standard tv/monitor resolution. And yeah. I know this is pre-rendered cutscene but the gameplay itself is also pretty good for the time, and stands head and shoulders above a lot of 3D indie games made today. What's the deal with graphics obsession still being a thing?

Everything I hear people bitch about muh triple A I roll my eyes.

There are a million self published indie games out there. Why do you even pay attention to triple A releases if they aren't your cup of tea?

I've been harping on this for years but I'll say it again; graphics hardware, disk space improvements and audio compression advaments have made games inferior products.
The kind if labour thst goes into modern graphics and voice acting is insane. Consider in rpgs we used to have the text equivalent of novels and interesting art directions all pre 2000.
Video Games if conceived in another world could hold countless prestigious pieces of art under its belt whilst in our reality I can count them on one hand that are anything but slop.
I hate capitalism.

>The npc sheeple made the industry that way.
<Noooo it's the bourgeoisie who made the industry that way
Implying there's a dichotomy here. The bourgeoisie shape the proletariat to buy their garbage and in return the proletariat shapes the bourgeoisie so they adapt to their preferences. It's dialectical. Breaking the class society will break such parasitic relationship obviously.

 

>>33964 (me)
My point is that the NPC sheeple has made the industry that way but also the bourgeoisie have made the NPC sheeple in the first place so they've indirectly contributed to the state of the industry anyway. They wanted that sweet-sweet cash from the larger populace so they're entirely to blame for focusing their efforts to attracting the lowest common denominator through dumbing things down and psychological woodoo magic of marketing and giving people gambling addiction.

It is better than a marker but the fact that it is so obvious it ruins immersion is an issue. Good game and map design naturally leads you to the ladder.
AAA slop is incredibly simplistic in terms of game design anyway. Both the marker and the yellow paint are there to make the slop assembly process more straightforward, neither of them is for the player's benefit. There's no good answer because the question is wrong.

Then again, not on PC. Not on PC.

 

Wow, the state of modern gaming. I feel like I'm blessed to have a shitty pc and can't play anything made after 2013.

>the state of modern gaming
What a cringe overdone stock phrase with zero validity other than AAA publishers producing slop and bad PC ports because they don't give a crap.

> AAA publishers producing slop and bad PC ports because they don't give a crap
Its what I'm referring to. I can't wrap my head around the idea of paying 70 dollars to play chore simulators.

 

>>33901
That's not "modern gaming" though. "Modern gaming" is too broad of a term to use here, it's misleading. AAA gaming becoming white is merely the natural consequence of gaming becoming mainstream, it happens to all media in capitalism. It happened to electronic music too, just look at the fucking Tomorrowland, European minimal "techno" producers, Skrillex and Angerfist, I hate this crap. I. Hate. This. Tasteless. "Music."
