The difference between this and Hatoful Kareshi is that the author of Hatoful wasn't completely clueless about what they were doing and thus could make something that was good in its own right, beyond just being a joke. DDLC isn't really any different than the millions of Western Speed Racer parodies or any other attempt at deconstruction by people only just slightly more informed about whatever it is they're trying to "deconstruct" or "parody" than your average suburban mother might be.

I don’t know why it’s always speed racer, considering gatchaman, Tetsuwan Atom and a localization of Macross aired quite a bit decades ago. I don’t think Speed Racer is even that popular in that time period! I also think those parodies are more focused about the low budget dubbing, poor animation seen in TV anime at the time and sometimes strange localization decisions.

Polite sage although I do have to say that the game itself was fine for what it is. The creator being pretentious has nothing to do with a fun little distraction although I will say that it seems odd to make a VN parody in this day and age considering most otaku play mobage more these days.

>I don’t know why it’s always speed racer,
While that's for some reason the majority, I've seen sailor moon get parodied and made fun of a lot. Probably because it was strange and unusual at the time, and the people who make fun of that stuff never learned how to move on. I suspect there's a lot of ignorance mixed in with these people who are likely out of touch and think outdated trops from 40-50 years ago still apply. Which is why the same people who make fun of speed racer and sailor moon are likely going to claim all anime is tentical rape filled harem shit. Dragonball was far more popular and culturally relevant to the west, but you wont see people make fun of that half as much because it's been deemed socially acceptable to be a fan of that. I'd guess comedians and writers likely don't want to piss people off by taking shots at something people love, so they go for easy targets.

As for the topic, fuck DDLC.

What do you think about "pixel shit", especially in indie games? Pretty much every /v/ board automatically rejects anything with pixel art. When I made the mistake of starting a thread about a game with pixel art(cross code), that's practically the only thing people talked about. Pixel art in many indie games have been lazy, uninspired shit used as an excuse for bad art, but it seems regardless of the artistic quality, people will reject the game if it has it. Admittedly, there are other problems's with crosscode's art and I wont defend it, but some of what's in the game does look impressive to me.

Pixel art is not necessarily simplistic or bland as many pc-98 games have shown. The technical capabilities holding pixel art back on other systems from the time don't exist now either. Is not "getting with the times" just bad in itself? Is "progress" a goal in itself and necessarily a measure of quality? I think being frustrated with an over abundance of something shouldn't blind a person's ability to judge quality.

Here's how pixel shit ends up being made: Some sap wants to become an indie game developer with no art and no programming knowledge. They look up tutorials on YouTube and watch the same five to ten videos everybody else does, if they're particularly unfortunate they end up FOMO-ing into some Udemy course made by the guy. Maybe they buy a book like Pixel Logic. Maybe they download a pack of those Saint11 .gifs.

However, all of these resources just regurgitate the same few bullet points about 'silhouettes', 'hue shifting', 'shading practices', 'limited palette', 'squash and stretch', et cetera, et cetera. This waters down what constitutes quote-unquote 'good pixel art' to what is on a list. None of these YouTube tutorials or online courses or artbooks teach you how to make a good looking menu, or what hardware had what kind of limitations and techniques that went around that, or the culture of specific regions and eras. Worse yet, none of these tell you what not to do outside of pixel art, at which point these developers will just move to watching other YouTube tutorials on how to use pixel filters on 3D models or software rendered glows or fog.

This is why all pixelshit looks the same, why all of them have stick figures with one pixel beady eyes, why you see so many characters with puffed out chests and legs apart and visibly breathing, why every lantern or lamp has a glow, why every tree and every cave wall and every ground texture is blobb-ish with the darkest layer on bottom and all other painted on top of that. It's all people learning from the same select few resources who then pat each other on the back with the meme white laurels for how good they followed the list.

I made this pic last year as an experiment to see what I can do without any of that poison after finding a tutorial low-key self-advertising for an online course with a 90$ base price tag.

Hey, I got a PS4 for Christmas, and with it, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2.
I have decided I want to commit myself and understand this game inside and out. I want to master it and have something to be proud of. I have never been good at anything in my life. (And the possibility of swindling money from normalfags with my skills is nice, too)

Would anyone like to join me? It is utterly useless to play against the AI. I need a human opponent, someone at my same zero skill level, we can grow together! We can share resources! We'll play and discuss Guilty Gear every single day!
If you master one fighting game, you master them all since they are fundamentally the same. This is an invaluable opportunity!
I'm going to EVO 2018, I am carpooling with someone for free, and maybe by that time we'll be confident enough to even compete!

What do you say? I currently play Kum Haehyun, but I still may switch to someone else.
Add me on Discord if you are interested. フードファイター#3019 <- my discord ID.
I don't currently have PS+ so I can't play online yet but I'm too new to waste my time fighting you right now, anyway. I am spending a lot of time in tutorial mode first.
I will delete this thread once I get someone to partner up with. If this thread is up, I am available.

Maybe BB really is a bit easier in the long run, but you get a faster start with GG because basic combos are easier and deal better damage. And GG has many cute girls, too! Actually, I'd say GG has the best-looking cast there's ever been in a game.

Years after watching and loving both Ef anime series, I finally started playing A fairytale of the two. I heard it has even stronger stuff concerning Yuuko. I'm still waiting for some other stuff, but this should very well do for the meantime.

I started reading Tsujidou-san no Jun'ai Road some days ago, I'm at the end of the "common" route right now. I really like badass characters, fighting and being cool and such. The heroines being delinquents was actually the reason I started playing it. I enjoyed it so far, but...

The one part I didn't like was when Tsujidou wore those frilly things. In my opinion it doesn't suit her at all, I prefer her "normal" clothing by far. I waited all the time for him to say something the likes of "you look very cute, but your normal clothes suit you much better, after all", but it was just the opposite.
And there lies the rub.
I read the beginning of some review on some blog.
It seems the mc will try to talk Tsujidou out of fighting and she will try to adhere to his shitty ideals...
And they will break up...(I hate love drama, especially in this case since it is because of the crappy mc...)
But that is not my only problem, I can't imagine starting to read the route of another heroine as that would mean completely betraying her, the relationship progressed way too far already in the common route.

So I have mixed feelings; I don't want to stop reading but I don't want the story to unfold that way, either.

I suppose that was a bit rude of me. Not sure if you're the same anon or not, but if you're going to break down my posts like that to argue each and every word, it really makes me not even want to respond. It only tells me you're that much of an argumentative person and I don't want to get dragged into an argument, especially not that type. I've seen it enough times to tell that sort of debate goes back and forth until one person gets frustrated or tired and stops responding.

Hello /vg/.

I come to you today with a request.

Do you know of any genuinely scary games?

I've wanted to be scared for a while now, but nothing seems to do it, so I'm turning to games for another try.

Any recommendations?

Also, Horror general, because this genre as a whole is great.

Undying (the clive barker game) used to scare me at certain points when I was a kid but I played it again a few years ago and it seemed to be pretty mediocre, so I dont know. At least I shared this as a genuine experience - that game used to be scary to me, at least.

Until recently I haven't had much time for videogames, now that I do I've been knocking out games in my backlog one after another while occasionally dipping into old favorites. There has been a growing concern however about how long I can keep doing this. At a glance one would think there's multiple life times worth of videogames on the market, but what about worth while games when you remove all the shovelwear and half broken indie trash? I don't have issue playing older games, including those that are too new to be retro but also too old to be relevant (think wii/ps3 gen games), I'm not trying to impress anyone after all and couldn't care less about social trends.
Net games are certainly one option, but they're unbelievably repetitive with their content being very spread out (if they even have any), they also involve a social element that can be a bit off putting for an anti-social person. people spend weeks if not months playing some of these games, fighting the same type of matches over and over with friends or random strangers, that might work for them but I can't stand that and have always been a single player person.

Unfortunately the industry has been shifting away from single player games for some time now and in general it feels like there has been less and less quality content is being produced due to small and midsize production companies being cannibalized by larger companies who themselves seem only interested in continuing their one or two best selling game franchises. Someone new to videogames might find it hard to believe companies like activision, ubisoft, and EA used to actually produce a variety of decent games along side smaller companies for a healthy and vibrant ecosystem, and god do I miss those days.

Sure, there's enough videogames out there now to last a person like me a few years, but then what? What about in ten or twenty years? I worry about the day when I've played every (not garbage) game on every system and am left with nothing new to explore or learn. I can't help but feel like being 40+ is going to be insufferable.

I worry about not having enough time and life to play all the good videogames out there, I don't see how you can end in the opposite. I discover interesting retro games every week, there's always something being translated or just unknown. And I replay a lot.
Today most games are really long, they take 100+ hours and I can't even keep the interest for that long. I end playing few games per year, something like Yakuza, The Witcher, Disgaea, can take me a whole summer easily.
I don't touch on-line games. Last on-line games I played intensively were Diablo 2 and Neverwinter Nights, I don't feel any motivation to play on-line anymore.
Thinking about it, for one reason or another I haven't even properly played games I really wished to play in late 90's. 20 years ago.
I will surely die without playing some of them. It's kinda depressing.
