Is there anyone here who plays Dofus? It's an MMO with 16 unique classes, a turn-based battle system, and a good sense of humor. I recently picked it back up a week ago after a 3 year hiatus. It would be cool if I could get some Brohnos to play with me. If you do decide to play, pick Shika for your server, because that's the one I'm on.
It is pay-to-play, but you can play for free up to a certain point. Plus, subscriptions do not cost very much.
I find the art of the show and the game very cute, but when I tried to play it last time it didn't seem to interest me much to continue playing.
Does anyone else here enjoy mod creation?
I've gotten into DooM mapping pretty recently. I know it's kind of old, but the lack of a true 3rd dimension makes mapping incredibly simple, so it can be done rather quickly and without much frustration.
How about a Dark Souls FPV?
I used to be really into the source engine and I even released some maps for TF2 and L4D. One of them even got featured in some IGN article. I have like loads of unfinished maps on my HDD that I sometimes go back and tinker on but I guess I really don't have the same interest anymore to actually finish them.
With the power of modern computing is there any good reason for turn-based gameplay except to emulate retro-games?
are you implying it doesn't?
Hearthstone is turn-based card game on battle.net, so it's a great game when you're in bed using a tablet.
You want to play CHESS ( http://tohno-chan.com/vg/res/10409.html#i10409 ) or some other board-game...
They're just different game styles, it has nothing to do with the computing power
What a dumb fucking thread
Let's help each other get better at games! Name the genres you're bad at,and the genres you're good at. Give help to those who are bad at what you can do and get help from those who are good at what you can't.
I'm extremely bad at shmups. I know it's mostly down to practise and memorising patterns.
Determining distances and knowing when to bomb are also very important skills. You can improve if you follow advice and by observing other players. Watching experienced players play the game can help big time. You can find out new ways to handle certain patterns that will probably work better than what you were doing. Be sure to watch one where the player uses the same ship/shot type as you do.
For a lot of games it's about planning. For instance, planning through where to bomb, when the extends occur, etc. ONce you have everything predictable, then it's a matter of practicing over and over.
How do I play 2D platformers? I can't even clear the first tower in SMW.
Web / flash games thread?
To kick us off, here's a Metroid/Cave Story style action game starring a snail:
It's pretty short, and not especially hard (difficulty scales well). You can use your snail powers to climb on the walls and ceilings, and you get a gravity power like in Metal Storm (but 4-way instead of 2-way). Also, you get to upgrade the weapons, and the upgraded pea shooter provides a moment of hilarity.
Neutral escape games. Tesshi-e also.
Hoshi Saga series is fun as well.
What's your favourite game music ever?
I liked the ost from Halo.
Command & Conquer forever especially Red Alert.

The soundtrack from One Way Heroics gives off this epic adventure feeling. Epic in a "tale"-like sense.
I've interest in playing it now.

Come on now, there's gotta be something you're sick of seeing get over used in videogame after videogame.
Something you wish they would just stop with already.
Personally, for one, it's most modern games limiting how many weapons you can cary at any one time to just two or three.
useualy being, one small weapon, such as a hand gun, and one or two bigger guns.
This I suspect to be not for realism, but to cover for their own laziness and unwillingness to make more available weapons for the game.
" It seems ever since the next gen consoles were released, the gaming industry hasn’t progressed along with the console themselves. We’ve seen review embargoes, buggy games on launch, 15GB day one patches, unresponsive servers and questionable contents of water in a game review. "
DLC still gets my goat.
May we have some guys that are steroid abusers?
This is a thread for giving out games you don't want. Be it keys or hard copies that could be mailed.
Please try not to be greedy and if you can pass along the favor.
That's a good idea.
There's a couple of stinkers in the Square Enix humble bundle that I don't want in my steam library - Startopia and Kane&Lynch Collection. Here's gift links (Steam keys) for anyone who's interested:
Startopia - https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=ZTqw3Grhm8R6sCxD
Kane&Lynch - https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=PWhkZTKd2NrXWuwq
I don't personally care for thank you posts, but it's probably a good idea to reply if you've claimed something. That way, others will know what to ignore.
Thanks for Kane & Lynch Collection!
Okay, looks like the keys are gone. Thanks for taking the time to grab them.
I don't use Steam but long story short I've got £6.99 in my Steam wallet that I want to get rid of (since I can't have it back). I've been trying to find an artist who will take a steam key as commission payment but nobody wants to do that.
So either if anybody can draw, would you be willing to accept a game (your choice - £6.99 isn't the max) as a commission fee or I'll just buy something for somebody here to give away?
So how about another thread about sequels we'd like to see but won't ever get? I'd bump the old one but it's in the archive already.
While we wait for Bloodborne,
Forever waiting for the next Sin & Punishment game.
It might have been a sequel but I was interested in The Last Guardian about half a decade ago. I would still like it but I wouldn't be excited, it's a bit too late for that.
Did anyone ask for a Wolfenstein prequel or sequel?
Bwaaaaahhhh Raaammm Youuuu
Fun for an April's Fool Joke.
