Anyone here like any game streamers?
I don't mean people like Ninja who are interactive advertisements, but more the people who play strange and obscure games and are entertaining in their own right.
I like Jerma, Vinesauce Vinny, and Vinesauce Swedish Vinny.

I watch Vinny's Sunday streams.


his forced laughter is grating


Does anyone else know about SGF?


vinny? forced laughter? wtf, I wouldn’t say that about vinny like… at all.
I prefer joel, but I’d still criticise joel over vinny. But only because joel has a tendency to run a joke into the absolute dirt


>run a joke into the absolute dirt
Listen here bucko, it was hilarious when he just kept going for an hour shitposting after the five minute nintendo direct.
At least it was hilarious for half an hour which is impressive enough before it actually started to get grating lol

Eh looks like a bit of a throwback to ff 1-5
Also I think I heard something about 'rejecting the crystals' or somesuch in the trailer, so maybe it's a self-aware throwback to the crystally ff games.
Didn't pay too much attention to all that garble though lol.


Is Amano on it?

It looks so miserable and dull, and not in a fun way like Drakengard. But at least it's not j-pop boyband again so I might check it out even.


Looks like anime GOT. The protag even looks like John Snow.


Honestly can't believe I'm happy an MMO dev is in charge of this. That's how bad FF has gotten. Literally the only half-decent part of the franchise in recent years are the shitty MMOs.

Here are three puzzle games for the Nintendo Entertainment System made by enthusiasts in the 21st century that you can play in emulator for free. In each of these titles the level is a single screen.

[b]Multidude[/b]: Side-view. Guide the dudes to the exit doors (each dude uses up one exit because video-game logic). The dudes have different abilities: One can shove blocks, one can fly and so on. They can also climb on top of each other. http://www.retrosouls.net/?p=824

[b]Alter Ego[/b]: Side-view. (Not to be confused with an old classic of the same name that goes through a life in fast forward and asks you questions.) You have a phantom buddy that mirrors your movement and you can switch places at the press of a button. You finish a level by collecting all purple pieces and sometimes also green pieces that only your phantom buddy can collect). http://www.retrosouls.net/?p=468

[b]Gruniozerca 3[/b]: Top-down view. Destroy all blocks and make it to the exit. There are different types of blocks like teleporters and exploding ones that damage their surroundings. There is also a carrot item that gives you the ability to jump over block-width gaps for the duration of the rest of the level. https://mteegfx.itch.io/grunio3

I found Multidude really bland at first compared to Alter Ego. There is no music and everything looks the same. But the later levels get really tough, which makes it memorable. Alter Ego has changes music and graphics every couple levels, but this the regular makeover in presentation isn't accompanied by new mechanics (how about some switches or enemies that only hurt your phantom buddy?). Getting through a level in Alter Ego is a matter of seconds, even the last level. The later levels in Multidude get really tough. It happened several times that I started a Multidude level before going to work and failed to solve it, thought about it while at work instead of whatever I was supposed to pay attention to, and then solved it after going home. The last level of Multidude is some maddening stuff with the exits high in the sky and you have to build a structure to reach them without trapping yourself.

Gruniozerca 3 also gets tough in the later levels, but when you fail a level a Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

There seems to be a bit of a war that went on between the SJW and GG boys back in the day about the topic and I was pretty interested in it suddenly since I play a fair few vidyas that could be said to be on the harder side.
That being said I think that the wank over difficulty is a bit pretentious at times.

I think there's exceptions, especially complex sims, strategy games, and the like. but for the most part if a person can't handle a game on the standard difficulty level they shouldn't even bother playing because they're not engaging with it in any meaningful way.


I think something also needs to be said about over-hard games, I'm talking battlefield 3 hard, no warning of enemies, quick ttk, that shit, because it exists and shouldn't be praised for being that hard, I'm not saying sekiro is too hard (never played it) but I think we should consider the other side of the problem


>battlefield 3 hard
I find it "hard" to play the cancerous festering pustules still masquerading as Battlefield games.


Nobody is forcing you to play them.

>muh markets

Kinda funny to see leftoids care so much about that.

>Some wokoid, fragile game journo
Stopped reading there. /v/ermin really care about what "video game journalists" (lol) have to say, huh?

>they're not engaging with it in any meaningful way
Most games released in the past two decades aren't all about gameplay, for better or for worse.


It's not about being forced to play, it's about there being nothing to play.

Piracy general thread.

Feel free to discuss the subject of piracy but

I'm not a "Soulsborne" fan per se, but I played Dark Souls for the first time just over a year ago and it enthralled me. There are just so many exciting moments in that game - the hellkite dragon, getting chased by a Black Knight, walking into the Undead Parish and getting hit by a beam of light from out of nowhere, fighting gaping Gaping Dragon, crossing Blight Town and then finding out you can just waltz on over to Firelink Shrine, chilling in Dukes Archives etc. The environment designs are really inspired. Playing DS1 brought back those feelings that I used to get playing Ocarina of Time all those years ago.

All other 'Souls-like' games seem uninspired in comparison. I unfortunately never got to play BB, but I did play Sekiro for a little bit and that just seems like a shit game to me.


I like the gameplay loop.
>I did play Sekiro for a little bit
The game really gets better once you get a handle on the combat.

igg-games puts bitcoin miners in your system and slowly fuck your system
they made there own DRM and they put it on games
they put ads in there games

Better Piracy Websites:
[Links removed]


Hmm, I used IGG for 2 games I currently have (Shovel Knight collection and For the People). Any way I can check if they got bit miners, as in what should I look for in processes menu?


i know they did not sure if they do it anymore because i know people where picking up on it. you don't really have a way to check because from what i have told it is very well hidden.

>multiple 2TB hard drives full of games
>never touch them
>bought a PS4 back in 2018 and practically every game I would ever be interested in
>haven't beat one
>have every handheld modded and a PC that can run any emulator with high specs
>never play anyway

Is it possible to just completely lose interest in video games? I know people who played substantially more than me during their adolescence, yet their appetite for gaming doesn't seem to diminish.
I don't think it's burnout because no amount of time away is affecting my interest.

lmao no


A lot of video games are just a series of checklists that you fill out, or are empty vacant rooms that you're supposed to interact in.
This could be said about a lot of things though, but it is easy to start seeing multiple games of the same type as being too samey. There is also a lot of pressure to like games that you're "supposed" to like in order to be a based lord or whatever even if they aren't terribly appealing to your appetite.



This is why I pirate everything. I know that I have a tendency to play games for a couple of days at most and drop them.


Games you don't have to like:
>open world
Have a high tendency to be really boring, especially if they're made by Ubisoft.
>le Souls
Not everybody likes yet another Demon's Souls clone, even if they are "the only hard games ever made"

Anyone still plays this? Was feeling nostalgic for some time now and wanted to try it again.

How do I get it for free in Current Year?

Ah, and I'm referring to the trial, of course. You won't need a torrent or some shady site if you just want to play single player for free. A torrent won't give you a working Realms ID, either, I believe. Better download it from the official site.


If you get stuck, come back to this thread and I will walk you through it. Simply using a third party launcher might work, too.


So I can do everything free on single player version by removing the -demo?

modding also okay?


Thanks, I found a way to play it using MCLeaks. Maybe it's a bit shady but it works for now.


Look on jewtube for a crack you lazy faggot


shut up poltoid
nobody asked you

Have you guys ever played these two masterpieces? Literally no modern historical city building game can compete with these two, they are the most polished, well designed games I've ever seen.
Caesar III which was already great, was succeeded by the much superior Pharaoh, which expanded on what Caesar had already done right, and made it even better, and was so succesful that even had an "DLC" with many more levels.

Also, you guys can use this thread to share your custom maps aswell

Machines was good rts for the time, sadly it's en limbo state


I never much played Pharaoh and Zeus seems a bit clunky. I did really enjoy the chinkie one, that campaign was solid.


You can get them on GOG for pretty cheap. I bought them for my Aunt who was obsessed with them. I could never figure these games out but she build mega cities that could run by themselves.
