Do you think video games will ever evolve to a point where one can jack one into his head and feel as though you are inside the videogame and before you evrything you wish for appears before your eyes? A matrix where your thoughts creates everything around you

Is there any reason something like this cant be created?

I don't see any. Social reality is already a virtual game, a simulacrum, just a very shitty one at it. If there comes a moment when most of people finally acknowledge this, then we can willingly shift to another and hopefully better device, or a ton of them.

Sounds interesting, I can say I have never really thought about it. But I am sure it is possible if it directly effects the way the brain interprets things, much like the eyes or nose. It seems terrifying to me because of the possibility of just that however. If this were to happen, would you like to see any ports of certain games in particular? Such as Quake or TIE Fighter?

This thread is for helping people who may have just gotten the game learn some helpful tips and tricks to make the early part of the game easier going,and also to list any glitches to watch out for.It isn't for plot spoilers,or at least anymore than necessary.

I'm constantly getting overencumbered and forced to walk at a snail's pace.I want to buy the house in Whiterun,but I don't how to get that much gold.Or at least,I didn't.Can anyone give me a step by step guide to doing this?

I've already got three iron daggers,and could probably pick up two more from the riverwood trader.How do I give them the banishment enchantment?

Right now,I've got Lydia waiting near Gerdur's house in Riverwood,and I've got most of my shit in a dresser in her house,but I'm afraid it will disappear so I want to get the Whiterun house as quickly as possible.

It's useful if you have Hearthfire DLC for house building.
>> No. 11079 [Edit]
While I don't personally think having a house in Skyrim is useful, at all, house building sounds comfy as fuck. Can it be done anywhere, or only in allotted spaces intown? Is it worth getting it for the building alone?
>> No. 11087 [Edit]
This game got really boring after I made it look pretty and created a cute girl character
>> No. 11106 [Edit]
Hearthfire is really restrictive, and can only be done is specific plots, and the houses all follow a template. It is however, kind of fun for the first few hours, building a cozy little house, and the DLC is I think $5 not on sale, and I got at $1 on christmas sale, so it's not a veyr large investment.

$1 million raised in less than 24 hours. This is going to have a big impact on game development.

Pretty sure most people just started throwing their wallets at their monitors the second they realized Tim Schafer is involved in this.
I don't care either way, it's their money, what they do with it is no business of mine.

A significant part of the particular proposition of the Double Fine Advendture Kickstarter was also the development diaries and such they'd shoot.
It was not the game people paid for so much as the idea of the project as a whole existing in the first place.
Of course, I can't actually speak to the motivations of any backers, and there remains a great and oft-actualized potential for all manner of weird shadiness in the crowdfunding model, but in that particular case there was no reason for
>people [...] buy shit without knowing for a fact it is something they want
to necessarily be the case. The game was a result of the proposition, but hardly the be-all and end-all of it.

I've backed some of those anime kickstarters myself, not because it's a smart use of my very limited money, but because I like the idea, and it gives me a sense of investment in the end-product. It's like a low-risk form of gambling that allows you to pretend you matter, and that you're somehow contributing to the industry of a hobby of yours more than you otherwise would.

And if that just sounds like a madman's ravings to you fair enough, I'm first in line to decry myself as an idiot who should never be allowed access to money, because he'll just hemorrhage it all away in the most retarded ways he can devise on the spot.
>> No. 11092 [Edit]
Never heard of him, is why it is so surprising I guess.

I don't think you are crazy for investing your money in what you like, I think those who invested in this particular game are crazy. Barely nothing about the game is even attempted to be explained as far as I can tell but in less than 24 hours it raised a million dollars. Just a rant, spend how you please.
>> No. 11096 [Edit]

>Never heard of him

Ouch, really? I more or less stopped playing video games almost a decade ago so I can't say if any of the Double Fine projects he worked on were any good but that guy is a living legend thanks to LucasArts point-n-click games he worked on.

Late to the party but finally bought a DS with flashcart. No drawing stick though, and the left trigger is busted though I am sure I know exactly how to fix it, given I buy the necessary screwdrivers to open the case off ebay. Still want to play some vidya with you guys. Anybody up for something?

The Nintendo DS online service has been discontinued as of May 20th. It's impossible to play games together now.
>> No. 11080 [Edit]
Damn, are you serious? The fucking bane of company hosted servers. When does a company stop a service entirely? It seems so unfair to strip a service people actually paid for, at any time period. But yeah I guess the DS isn't new anymore. This is shit. Thanks for the heads up.

seems pretty much like purchasing a chore. Is this basically a more realistic Harvest Moon or is it a little more tedious? I have been pretty interested in trying it out, as well as other simulators such as the Euro Truck Simulator since so many circle jerk about it. To those who have played it, would you recommend to someone seeking some comfy?

Yeah but I wasn't sure if my PC was beefy enough or if I needed the motion controls. I will give it a shot, but need to know, how is the accuracy of Wii emulators? 3D consoles seem to be pretty iffy quality emulation wise, though this is Nintendo 64 and Sega Saturn talking.
>> No. 11065 [Edit]
I don't know much about emulators, but dolphin is pretty good and I never found a game you can't run in dolphin. You can also connect a real wiimote to dolphin easily, that's how I play super mario galaxy 2. You can also use stuff like a ps3 controller or your mouse and keyboard and then map the motion controls to buttons.
There is never a case where you have to buy a wiimote to play the game. Just download it and try to run it, it's free.
>> No. 11067 [Edit]
Anon who played Endless Ocean here. I played the original on the Wii but just got Dolphin and an Endless Ocean 2 ISO. Works pretty well so far but I have an nVidia GTX 760 graphics card, which is fairly powerful. If you play full screen and hide the mouse pointer the wiimote emulation is good. Some of the shadows seem wonky but I dunno if I can improve some of the graphics options to fix that, because by default the fancy stuff is unchecked.
>> No. 11069 [Edit]
Well that is fantastic to hear. Been too afraid to try any of the 3D games. Gotta check this shit out, as well as other Wii games on my todo list. Might even hit up PS2 since I am so confident. Thanks.

Oh good, it's just a movie, not a game. For a while there I thought I was going to have to buy a PS3 or something.

I far preferred IMOQ and sign anyway. I wish they'd just let the franchise die already. At least until full on virtual reality becomes possible and affordable.

Actually there's still a game coming
But it's most likely based on the movie world where kite is a gurl in love with balmung

so, being an americunt, I haven't heard shit about this since well this fucking thread. What is the deal? Is the movie out? Is the game out? Are they worth checking out? I really liked the playstation 2 games, and would probably enjoy the PSP game but there isn't a localization, yet.

lately I've been messing around with my psps a lot and figured with the wide range of home brew applications, plugins, and emulators that it could use a thread for discussion such things.

So have any of you tried messing around with modding/hacking these things?

I need to consider upgrading but I'm lazy and am on 5.50 Prometheus 4 on this particular PSP. This isn't my most heavily modded one though, and as such I don't want to mess around too much with CTF crap.

Yeah, it's clean looking and it's not CTF, so no extra RAM/CPU usage.

I recently put this thing together. Hoping to make it my main someday but it still needs a bit of work. stick doesn't move around that well and the shoulder buttons don't work as good as they could. Thing is crazy light without a umd drive in it, half the weight of a fat. I might also try out some leds and what not to trick it out. If I could afford to mess around I'd maybe even try installing a camera behind the memory card and gps where the umd was. Second analog stick mod would be neat but I can't think of more than 3 psp games that would benefit from it. also got some extra speakers laying around that I thought of putting in it, but don't think there's enough space in the front area for that. I was able to find a ctf theme I think works well, but need to figure out how to remove the animated wave thingy which appears over background images on that theme for some reason.

I was really lucky with this thing, I was able to find a psp 2000 for only $17 just becuase it was bricked (super easy fix) and it had a TA-085v1 motherboard which is pretty much ideal. Stange thing is though... while the replacement body game with all the necessary screws none of them seemed to fit properly. they looked exactly like the originals but I couldn't use any of them.
I also had a screen protector laying around for a while and figured I'd finally apply it but man... is it even humanly possible to apply screen protectors without getting at least some particles of dust/fibers under it or what? just as well, the indent around the screen on the 2000 model has prevented the protector from sticking properly around the edges anyway.

Have any of you played Alpha Centauri? Its basically scifi civilization, but slightly different. Its made by same people and just about $3(though i pirated it because i actually own the game and don't know where the disk is). I really enjoy this game and since there seems to be a multiplayer option i was wonder if anyone would be willing to play? I really suck at these kinda games, but it would still be fun!
Also share your opinions of it if you've played?

I am not a fan of skype, I hope you understand, but I would love to play this game with you. I too suck shit, maybe even moreso but I am up for a game as it is a learning experience. Just give a time and whatever other information I need (as I have never netplayed Alpha Centauri) and I would be glad to join you.

Are there specific genres of games you dislike entirely (or almost entirely)?

For the sake of the thread, let's not count sport games.

The vast majority of JRPGs.

It's a shame, because I enjoy every aspect of JRPGs apart from the actual gameplay - they tend to have very good atmosphere, music and interesting stories. I completed Final Fantasy X and others when younger, but realised it had become a chore to finish and I was only playing to get to the next cutscene.

I just find the grinding/turn-based battles very repetitive and unengaging. I only enjoy action-based battle systems such as in Nier, and those games are quite few in number.
>> No. 10882 [Edit]
I've never disliked the entirety of a genre before, I can find numerous things that are likable to me in all of them.
But there are a few select franchises in most that drive me up the wall. Pokemon being one of them. The games are all so brain dead that I can't understand how anyone could find them enjoyable. There's so many quality, actually thought provoking RPG titles out there but all most people want to play is shit like final fantasy and persona.
This extends well and beyond RPG's of course, it's just the best example I could give at the moment.

Let's talk about co-op games. Maybe we can find one that we can play together.

Does anyone like Doom? The gameplay is simple, and it runs on nearly all computers. I'd set us up a server (using Skulltag), but my ISP doesn't allow me to open ports.
