Alright as someone who was a fucking idiot 3 years ago when I had payed all my bills and was just sitting around with money from my summer job and ended up buying a Vive just to stop myself from buying crack(I should have gone with the crack tbh) I got Alyx and here's what I have to say about it:

It's meh. Like if this wasn't a VR game it would be burned at the fucking stake for being so horribly average: There's only 4 guns(Decided to take a note from Bethesda and that gun customization made cutting the arsenal in half was OK), combat is meh at best since enemies are all bullet sponges and you can't keep a track of where your body is because you know VR. Graphics are nice but it has the same loading system as Half-Life 1 in that you go 20 feet of some tunnel before changing levels.

That being said it's probably the best damn VR game I've ever played due to the fact that it's a decent game, most VR games are either $20 tech demos that have one gimmick and then lose their charm after 30 minutes or are a regular game that has VR support, so having an actual full length game being built around VR and has really good controls as well is amazing. That's not praise for the game btw, it's just the utter state of the VR industry right now. [i]No, Skyrim/Fallout 4 don't count[/i]


The problem with VR is it's expensive bullshit and there's 40 different versions of it. It's also usually a closed system. IDK if Valve's version is open or not. They have a history of supporting DIY and tinkering with their products, but they've moved away from that sort of mentality toward grasping at every nickel and dime they can get, being a monopoly on digital game sales now.


Is Half-Life Alyx good enough that I should try and avoid spoilers for potentially multiple years before I play it? I keep hearing the ending is mind blowing, which makes me want to see it and avoid it at the same time.

I'm necroposting here, but one must-have mod for HL2 is MMod. Basically, it takes vanilla HL2 and makes the combat actually good with revamped AI and new weapon models and ballistics. Worth it just for the MMod shotgun, it's fucking amazing, hard to describe why but it's my favorite shotgun in an FPS.


um sorry sweaty but half alyx life is the best VR game of all time and deserves all the GOTY awards and should be enshrined in a hall of fame

you're just mad because alyx is half black so it makes you want to say the gaymer word

have sex incel

Citra got released on mobile and my Snapdragon 632 is able to handle Pokemon Y pretty decently, but I'm really scared that it will decrease my phones overall life shorter because I think emulators in general cause a lot of stress to my phone

Anyone know how do I keep my phone perfect and functional for ages so that I can keep gambling in my gachas? I keep getting the poor thing bumped into walls and it even fell fully into the water for 5 seconds

Honestly, I would try to get a N3DS.
A N3DS should go for cheap (new N2DS got more expensive because of corona) is easy as fuck to hack, and is probably the best portable emulation machine right now.


I'd argue the Vita is a better emulation machine and is easier to hack,
but 3ds is alright.

if games were open-source or better yet libre-source software this could not happen.

I want to play video games but it's so warm and the heat generated by the computer would make it a lot worse.

Repaste it maybe?


Just get a fan bro?


That keeps the CPU cool, I think OP meant running the PC for a long time heats up the room, and there's nothing you can do about that that's just thermodynamics.

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.


It's more of a Sims kinda game rather than Harvest Moon kinda game.


But it is still shittier than Rune Factory 4

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 do you think he wears a loincloth?

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?


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.

Don't know if it tells more about me or about the music, but I can't help but seem to hear gachi remix sounds in that first video


I used to play stepmania


I don't know about the spyware, can you expand on that?


For ages the game was packaged with a screen recorder, that automatically ran every time you started a game and send the recording to the server, and an input recorder (though that one has been turned into a feature). Eventually people found out and the then current maintainer defended the decision as an anti-cheating tool. It was slated to be removed, but I never checked if they actually did take it out of the code.


Development has been revived: https://www.stepmania.com/forums/news/show/62885
I still play it on occasion. Basically the same old, though some of the new themes are very fancy.

Someone should make a wokémon about collecting identities. The more instersectional they are, the stronger they are when they do battle in Oppression Olympics.

Took Wizard of Legend; thank you based anon


Took The Witness. Thanks anon!


I think the whole game is pretty good except for when you're doing the stealth bit playing as the kid which is god fucking awful, however the basketball scene alone makes everything worth it


>he buys his games


There aren't many, but some developers are worth supporting.
