Slower, more deliberate gameplay isn't "shitty gameplay". The gameplay you're talking about is more suited for the singleplayer experience or the multiplayer "set match" experience. Twitchy, fast paced combat isn't suitable for the MMORPG experience, where this type of gameplay conflicts with the social experience which should always be put front an center. As the other poster pointed out, they were able to take down endgame bosses in the current iteration of WoW without need for communication which is a *problem* for any game calling itself "MMO".

If what you want is an adrenaline pumping, super-fast, twitchy experience, I'd never recommend Chess to you because that's not the experience you're going to get from Chess and, at the same time, even the most fast-paced MMO "action combat" system is going to be wholly inferior to singleplayer and set match multiplayer games. And you're not there for the MMO experience anyway, so why bother? Play the better game, the one that suits your tastes.


Speed chess is actually pretty dang adrenaline pumping.


Speed Chess isn't proper Chess. It's one of the many Chess variants.


Also, I don't think even Speed Chess is going to measure up very well in comparison to most physical sports when it comes to being "adrenaline pumping". So, instead of recommending Speed Chess to someone, I'd just recommend they play a sport. Speed Chess would very likely be inferior to someone looking for that kind of experience to something like soccer, football, rugby, tennis, etc.

>I definitely gave up.
It's a game defintly for people with autism, as it takes a very very long time, alot of detail and planning for you to do it. H2, I need to beat Archibald's, and a few other campaigns, but i got though the hardest ones.


I cant get over how ageless the graphics in these games are. Heroes 2 is almost 25 years old and it still looks gorgeous. I wish modern indie games would go for sprite graphics like these.

Heroes 2 and 3 were fun as a kid, and I played 3 some later in life, but it's not that great a game. Age of Wonders 3 scratches the same itch, and is a far superior game.
Eador: Masters of the Broken World is also a very interesting game in this genre, but that definitely isn't going to be for everyone.

Eh, it's been quite a while since I last played it, but I think HoMM5 wasn't half bad. Though I remember the magic system was designed in a way that many factions got in their towns schools of magic that they couldn't use effectively.

It's been an even longer while since I last played 3, and I lost my CD. I guess it's perfect timing though, there's a sale at GOG right now.

playing phoenix point atm, technically not great but fun overall



Is turok still good? I used to play it when I was little and I had a really hard time with it, but I still enjoyed it. Turok 2 with all the cheats was ridiculously fun too. "oblivion is at hand" was the cheat I think.


what the fuck torrent search engines y'all use

i updated qbitorrent and now suddly no torrents are being found

i want to download all the DBXV2 dlcs

Should I get it?

I wonder if it will be in favour of libertarian socialism or a completely decontextualised porky screed. The description says it will try to 'tackle the issues of 2020' so that sounds like a winner.

Why does it have anime style visuals?


That just looks like a contemporary western style to me, though granted there has been a heavy Japanese influence.


>I wonder if it will be in favour of libertarian socialism
Why would it be? The game is based on an anti-communist book


Figures. The fact they had the persmission of the Orwell estate just makes it more damning.

I pirated it and tried to play, but all three times I played it Snowball was exiled from the farm by Napoleon after proposing the windmill and things deteriorated from there. Also, the game basically portrays all of the pigs as pretty hypocritical and malevolent, rather than having Snowball as a 'counterweight' and basically gives the impression that animal farm sucks and it was better when the farmers ran things. I'm sure it's possible to win but after 2.5 plays I don't really wanna put in the effort to do more. It's also VERY repetitive. Overall, a 4/10.

>“Animal Farm is a literary masterpiece which uses deceptively simple language to accurately describe the downfall of communism from the dream of equality into totalitarian oppression. The fate of the farm was all too real for me growing up in totalitarian Hungary.

I tried Eye on you guys recommended and it was the most mind numbingly tedious horseshit ever, why the fuck is every level so insanely oversized? why does it take several minutes to sprint from one side of the hub world to the other? How the FUCK does the save system even work? I’ve never played a game where I legit could not figure out how the save system even functioned before until this game.

What the fuck.


>using computers as intended is the same as sailing the seas pillaging and murdering civilians
It's copying m8s. No, being an indie dev doesn't make you any less susceptible of me copying your shit. I might buy it from you if you give me the source code.


>Muh copying
Retarded argument. Before anyone attacks me, I pirate all my shit anyway (even crap I could get for free from uni) because I don't care. The "It's just copying brah" is stupid, because it assumes the piece of media is valueless due to the ability to copy it infinately. But nonsense. Even if it was copied infinately, there are still production costs, and if they aren't covered, no one (under commodity production) would make them. Secondly, the piece of media will only get copied a relatively small number of times, not infinately. This is the reason why any non-hobbyist digital media would have to either be paid for, or taxed out of the populace.
Oh, and a good paralel to better explain what I mean - a paintings only real produce is the act of seeing the said painting, which is infinately replicable act with no labour needed to achieve, however the artist still needs bread, and the display place needs to be maintained, hence the visitor is forced to pay for a ticket, or has his taxed labour value directed towards maintanence.


It's a meme. It's a terrible, broken game with hints of a greater vision buried inside. The hypothetical game that EYE was supposed to be is amazing though. It will be made one day, assuming the world doesn't end beforehand.


This, except that I'll only willingly support the devs if I like them enough and if I have a small amount of money to waste.

What's your favorite pinball game, anon? Most of us aren't made of money so we have to settle for virtual pinball. Is there anything about your favorites that you think distinguishes them from other pinball games?

Every home will contain a pinball machine under communism. We must make this a slogan.


I never knew that Kirbys Pinball had more "levels". Both games seemed so simillar because both games where made by HAL and both of them used the same engine. I always thought that Kirbs's Pinball is the same as Revenge of the Gladiator except thats its Kirby themed.

I've always wanted a real pinball or arcade mashine as well, i actually had the same problems as you did. I live in Europe and i've never seen a real Arcade mashine or Pinball cabinet anywhere here. The only time i did see one, was in a hotel when i was visiting Egypt a couple of years ago.
I think its a shame that Pinball mashines aren't being made anymore, there is an American company, (that i can't remember the name of) wich makes smaller versions of Arcade cabinets, but i dont think that they do the same thing with Pinball mashines, sadly.


>Revenge of the Gladiator
Curious that you keep calling it this. Don't you notice all the alligators?

>Don't you notice all the alligators?
I did, but i just noticed that it's actually called "Revenge of the Gator". I probably accidentally said it wrong the first few times, then got used to calling it like that.

Thanks that you've pointed it out.


After what amounts in my estimates to several days worth of on-and-off play, I have finally maxed out the score counter in Kirby's Pinball Land. Turns out it actually rolls over back to zero when you get to 100 million, so I had to very carefully and intentionally kill myself at 99,999,990 to place on the high score table. That bonus minigame with the goalie on the Poppy Bros. table is really broken when you get good enough at it. It's not too much trouble to rack up 1ups indefinitely if you can keep getting sent to the minigame, while the bonuses gained there are one of the most efficient ways to score huge points. The trick to getting real good at Kirby's Pinball Land is realizing that the left and right flippers actually have their own characteristics and send the ball on different trajectories even if you hit it at the exact same point on either side. I wonder if it was intentional behavior or a quirk of the game's resolution/physics system or something. I guess I can finally put this one to rest and move on to another pinball game.


Which switch games should I get?

Hol up… Are you saying Pokemon has been remade [b]two[/b] times now? I was not aware of this absolute creativity vacuum.


What are the chances of random Japanese otome games for the Switch being uploaded online? I still haven't downloaded a Switch emulator so I have no idea how many pirated games there are. But there's an upcoming game I really want and it's a Japan-only Switch exclusive. Depending on the answer I might have to somehow import the cartridge in the future and share the game myself if it's even released physical.

And it was basically just made to complement Pokémon GO. Not only that, but it's lacking things from Yellow and FRLG (reminiscent of ORAS disappointment). As a coomer I would only play it because of the updated trainer designs.


Only plan on buying one once Metroid Prime 4 comes out

Even in the modern era barely any countries really accept outside cultures, it's a bit unrealistic to expect it to happen in the victorian era


I mean it's not like the political and economic sim in paradox games is especially geared towards realism anyway as much as it's abstractions that allow you to play with a sandbox history, but more to the point the rapid speed of assimilation in Vicky2 is far more unrealistic than conditional acceptance of certain cultures would be. It should take at least a couple generations, and there should be syncretic cultures/religions that form under certain conditions out of the presence of different cultures. Like if you have strong traditionalist/conservative politics, and strict immigration law, some portions of a minority culture should quickly assimilate (within a generation) while other portions maintain high discontent, and if you have socially liberal or left politics and lax immigration law, immigrants should assimilate more slowly and there should be significant syncretism that can produce "subcultures" like Irish-American, Italian-Argentine, Anglo-Irish, Brazilian Confederados, etc.

Maybe that's autistic but what is the point of Vicky2 if not POP autism?


How is that mod these days? I remember when I tried to play it years ago, the economy was completely fucked.


It seems decent within reason to me, at the least playable. They've been working on it consistently over the past few years so I'd say it's worth giving another try.


That would be cool, I guess I just think it would be dumb if you can pay 50 whatever points and wait 6 months and suddenly Serbia embraces Han Chinese culture or whatever.
