$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.

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.

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?

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.

>> No. 11070 [Edit]
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?

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.

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.

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.

The guys who made RTW2 had extra budget left over, so they donated it to the Extra Credits team for them to give a history lesson on Rome, around the wars that the game is based on. Interesting.

If you could create a VN about anything, what would it be about?

I'd either make one about living by myself in a remote place, or a historical one. I'd love to play a historical-style VN.

Reporting back to let you all know the game was shit. At least it is if you try to play with others, I actually drifted away from several friends because of the wedge this game puts between it's players.

Fucking everything before level cap actively punishes group play, and everything after that is the usual MMO grind. Even a NEET like me has better things to do with my time than grind mining nodes all night.

Nice swimsuits though.

Original thread: >>1

I figured that it's time for a new thread considering how long the old one is and how hard it is to find important stuff (such as the SMP server's IP) in that thread. So here we go.

Tohno-chan Minecraft server: tobocraft.dyndns-server.com (type it in manually, copying and pasting it doesn't always work)

This server is compatable with pirated copies of Minecraft, no need to fuck around with hamachi or anything like that, just punch the IP in and connect.

Concerning updates: The server is running on bukkit, and it takes a few days for a new stable build + plugins to be updated and released. I'll do everything in my power to update asap, but until I'm able to do so I highly suggest that you hold off on updating your client to the newest version.

To get ops (so you can use commands like /give and /warp): ask someone who can op you (people with red names, which is just about everyone) or ask in the thread. For a list of commands, use /help. It's a pretty fucking long list, and many of them aren't very useful, so I'll make a post with a list of the useful ones later.

Server rules: Don't be a dick. That's pretty much it.

And of course, feel free to talk about Minecraft in general in this thread as well.
