Who else here prefers old video games over new?

I know people are probably sick of hearing this but I just have such incredible nostalgia for the games of the late 90s and early 2000s. It felt like every major release was something I was excited about, and they were games that other people were excited about too - Majora's Mask, Final Fantasy X, Metroid Prime, etc. Now every headline-grabbing game is yet another generic open world RPG and/or FPS, and I just don't feel like keeping up with the mainstream gaming community at all. I played 2 hours of Skyrim and it bored me to tears. Fallout 4 is such a normie thing, it's disgusting. I basically only play Nintendo games and other japanese games now.

I'm pretty excited about The Last Guardian and Shenmue 3 though, and other people are excited about those too. Gives me some hope.

I love how they've managed to make so many of these games without changing the central cast much at all over so many years. Not unless you count the villains or the add on side characters anyway.
>> No. 12398 [Edit]
I agree. It's great for people who have a character from the series as their waifu because they've got all these games with them and are guaranteed many more for years to come. It's reliable in the sense that if you love the series, you'll always be able to look forward to more of it.

Do you think coin mining is hurting pc gaming?

Thanks to people building mining rigs with dozens or even hundreds of GPUs, supplies are becoming limited and major retailers are selling them at three times their original prices. This is no big deal to minners who buy them in bulk, but for average people who actually intend to play videogames $1000 for a 1070 is just out of the question.

It *is* making GPU cards more expensive.
>> No. 13097 [Edit]
Well, if the coin market crashes (which it's starting to) then we'll see a lot of miners dismantling their rigs and selling the cards for cheap. I wouldn't want to buy a card used in a mining rig, but it should lower prices overall if the market becomes flooded with the things.

This VN has been getting popular lately.

So I was watching some crappy game vids this morning when I saw reviews for this game start popping up, and almost all of them were from game reviewers who never touch anything anime style. Needless to say, this game has become huge with normalfags and the type who normally would hate these style of games.
This started raising some questions, and I soon found myself in a very lengthy discussion with a couple other people about this. The discussion was mainly about how the game felt like an attack on a genera of games that had never really been popular in the west until very recently. Generally speaking, in the history of gaming most of the games that get imported from japan are horror/action tittles. because there's not much of a market for the moe stuff, The style of games Doki doki literature club is mimicking have simply never been available in the west before steam came along and made it easier for these games to be published and fine an audience. Before steam, VNs rarely got translated, and mangagamber had an uphill battle trying to get them to catch on in the west. At this time, the only games that managed to get popular for the most part were violent horror games like Higurashi or saya no uta. Mangagamer meanwhile had little success pushing more moe games such as Shuffle or galaxy angle.

Skip ahead a few years and steam has gone from being primary big name western games, to weeb central. We start to see VNs get translated at a decent rate now, and we even see a violence/horror free VN manage to gain a lot of popularity by the name of nekopara. One could say this was looking like a renaissance for the west. A time when moe, dating games, and general cuteness might finally find a place here.
We even started to see western made VNs, now that it seemed like a market for them was forming. These usually weren't very good and had pretty fugly art, but it was still interesting to see all the same. Then we got some some nasty games like those huniepop things which have the look of being from japan, but are actually western made agenda filled garbage. Those were mostly harmless though. Now we have doki doki literature club, what feels like an attack on these style of games. This time the game hides it's true intentions of being a mockery/degeneration of these style of games. This while trying to make you feel guilty abou

Calling this game propaganda is a bit heavy-handed. Some guy just wanted to make a game that deconstructs the visual novel genre in a critical fashion. He did so in an "edgy" way that might startle or shock certain types of people. The game is on the same level as Hatoful Boyfriend but with horror elements; It's a meme game. One that definitely comes across as a bit insidious due to the psychological horror elements.

I don't think it's part of a wide-reaching scheme by feminists to make people hate anime, that's actually absurd. It reminds me of the guy who claimed that Undertale was produced by "cultural Marxists" a while back.

If anything it's having the opposite effect and bringing anime to a wider audience - Which is also undesirable in it's own way.

Westerners just love horror because our culture is obsessed with death and destruction. It's why Saya no Uta, featuring sex with a Lovecraftian eldritch-thing in the guise of a young girl, managed to get as popular as it did, even getting a comic adaptation (though I think Saya was "aged up" in that iirc). I'm paraphrasing Alan Watts when I say that Americans developed a culture that doesn't praise life, but death.

I've been playing VNs for over 7 years, ranging from Sayan no Uta to Canvas 2. I've also enjoyed anime ranging from Eva to Ichigo Mashimaro, and manga from Aku no Hana to Usagi Drop. I think you have a false dichotomy there, as liking sophisticated unsettling works isn't exclusive from liking simple and joyful ones.

I very much enjoyed Doki Doki and not once felt it as an attack on VNs, but rather as a personal homage to them made by Salvato, at the very best of his squills and from the bottom of is heart. Even aside from the yandere and horror elements, together with its criticism of commonplace tropes, the character of Monika struck me as an impressive achievement towards hyper-reality, or simply blurring the limits between reality/object and fiction/representation. This, I think, happens when we allow ourselves to be really invested in some narrative and play along with it (with the epitome of it in commitedly having a waifu, à la /mai/, like I have for about 8 years now). Say, I even made a little piano song to Monika, as an answer to her making one for me, and post it on her Twitter; she completely ignored it (which was a little too real, kek), but the sole fact of being able to indulge into it and 'interacting' with a character in such a way was exciting and uplifting.

Do I resent that unwanted people of some sort jumped into the bandwagon of its popularity? Well yes, just like I dislike a large part of otaku fandom as well (including some horrendous Eva fans). But that doesn't turn me against the works themselves, which I think would be backwards: the finished work is what one makes of it, and if I myself find it valuable then what others do or not is inconsequential.

Of course I neither expect to change your mind about this: you like/dislike what you do and that's about it. The thing is, I personally very much liked the game in a way I felt like advocating here.
>> No. 13140 [Edit]
Well put. It's nice to hear the opinion of someone who knows what he's talking about. There's too many people jumping on the bandwagon who have never touched a VN in their life while praising this as the best VN ever.

The most important thing in open world games is how fun it is to roam around. GTA3, Far Cry 2 and Dying Light are my three favourite open world games of the last three console generations respectively, GTA3 doesn't have fast travel, Far Cry 2 has such an awkward to use fast travel its really only useful if you want to move from one corner of the map to another and Dying Light only has fast travel between the two maps and it isn't needed because moving from A to B is such a delight in those games.

Has anyone given this a try, with RPCS3? I hear you need a decent computer to even want to do this, and with PS3s being pretty cheap now, not to mention crackable (withholding new hardware/software updated consoles) that may be a better way to go about playing ps3 games given the ability to find an older console. Anyways, is emulation viable for ps3 games at the moment, and does it yield decent results?

There are no save states with this emulator. Seems it is under a good amount of development so these types of things I've been running into are pretty common. Pretty cool that they run none the less.

You can emulate ps2 games pretty well on the computer, it's actually pretty nice. Check out Pcsx2. The only issue you might run into is lag depending on the game.

Yes and I love it (actually Patreon it). It runs great even on my (upgraded) 2013 gaming laptop at 1080p with Vulkan.

Finished Catherine (undub) with no issues and currently playing Okami HD, both full speed. Also running Drakengard 3 (undub) at around 20fps, but still crashes after the prologue. Nier Replicant still have many issues and runs at very unstable 5-20 FPS on Windows, but over 20 FPS on Linux for a yet unknown reason; development is very promising, though. I also plan to try Persona 5 sometime soon (currently playing Persona 4 on PCSX2).

So, from what I can tell I most of the problems I was running into were caused by driver crashes or other problems in windows. I haven't downloaded any other games to try out, but the two I used above ran just fine with the opengl renderer in linux. Did come across this text issue though, which happens in windows too. Since Disgaea actually ran at solid fps I got around to playing it for a while yesterday. Wanted to make sure it was indeed the fault of windows/crappy drivers by checking it with the latest version of the emulator, everything acts the same as it did before.

Normally I wouldn't create a separate thread for a single game. I also do my best to avoid using words such as 'best' as I don't won't to enforce my opinion upon other people or just plain upset someone. So I won't tell you that DS's best RPG and possibly its best game overall is getting a remake. Let me just say one thing: Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology got announced.
>> No. 12366 [Edit]
I wonder if anybody remembers this game, we've had a nice thread about it back in the day and it seemed to be well received. I couldn't help myself and I've made another thread for it.

I've actually redownloaded it just a short while ago, intending to replay it since I liked it so much and now this gets announced. I'm pretty excited, and a little bit anxious too. Apparently it's a 'full remake'. I guess Atlus will reveal more about it this weekend, during a presentation they have scheduled. They invited a bunch of seiyuu and judging from the low res Famitsu scan floating around the game will be voiced this time around (I think you can see 声 below the character names). On top of that there's a new female character. I think they changed the artist since the character portraits look noticably different.

Well, I just hope they won't change too much and that they'll keep the battle system intact, since it was innovative and a lot of fun. Truth to be told I'd sleep better if it the only changes were the new character, 'new scenario' and voices. But I'm excited nonetheless and I hope it'll be every bit as good as the original game.

After googling around a bit I found some more info.

First, the voice cast:
Konishi Katsuyuki - Stocke
Komatsu Mikako - Nemesia (the new character)
Takahashi Rie - Eruca
Kurosawa Tomoyo - Aht
Sakura Ayane - Raynie
Yamaya Yoshitaka - Marco
Hatano Wataru - Rosch
Kuroda Takaya - Gafka

The portraits have indeed been redrawn, as you can see in the screenshot. Personally I liked the old artstyle more but I can live with it.

The 'new scenario' is a third story node called Sub-History but from the way it's described it seems rather than being a true node it's a series of side stories related to the characters and in-game events.

It looked that way based on Famitsu scan but it was hard to tell - unfortunately Eruca's design was changed. I wonder why, considering every other design was kept the same and Eruca's was too, except for her hair. She looks really generic now. Oh well.

Atlus also revealed Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 and SMT Strange Journey remake at yesterday's event.

Well, it's out now. When I first heard of it I imagined myself downloading it on the day it'll be out. Unfortunately the timing ended up being poor for me so I 'll probably play it in March/April or so.

Still, if you haven't played this before and you own a 3DS do yourself a favor. If you have played it you already know it's certainly worth replaying. Have fun.
