These guys are just a few dudes and they listen to player feedback, constantly add content, are always adding new gameplay mechanics, and actively optimize the game.


This is just ONE dude, and he worked his ass off to make the first real space simulator game and it's actually fucking good. His work paid off and now he's going to steam with good intentions. He's always adding features, physics minutia, new ships, sounds, functionality, user friendliness, optimization, and directly listens to and incorporates player suggestions if reasonable.


Now take Keen Software House. It's been three years and you see the following:

>they listen to little kids from the player base instead of grown men resulting in retarded decisions like planets

we made a thread on 8chan.org/svidya where we were suggested to create a thread here. 7chan has an irc channel dedicated to netplaying various different videogames and we need some more users. you can commonly find us playing; Doom (client usually zandronum), Phantasy Star Online (ephinea private shard), 100% Orange Juice, and Risk of Rain. i know some users would like to play some more; Quake I, Guilty Gear XX Reloaded, Civilizations V, and Battle for Wesnoth. we also emulate many different games across several systems through great clients such as mednafen (my personal favorite), mamehub, and zsnes. i cant speak for everyone but i will try just about anything once so make some suggestions and we can probably get a game or two going

feel free to visit our hugbox;
network: irc.7chan.org
channel: #netplay
-i recommend you use hexchat. it is a free irc client which is easy to use. most of the community is in North America, though different regions are welcome to join and we could get a bunch of games going where lag isn't a big issue like OpenTTD or Quake I deathmatch

i will try and add more new and EXCITING screenshots tomorrow. for now i will reuse a picture from the thread on 8chan /svidya of me and another player beating wild guns.

In the traditional sense of games it really seems that way.

You have also got me thinking OP, most western projects that would seem interesting get immediately, from conception, tangled up in Early Access or Kickstarter. I am of the preference to play from my backlog or look sideways before touching those two, and I imagine the people that play them don't make a lot of noise since recommending an (officially) incomplete game does not sound wise; so there must be a number of titles that will keep under the radar until they are finished and someone rediscovers them. If they are finished in the first place, that is.
I assume you talk regarding the current Nu-Neo-Re-*-Eternal September surrounding vidya and entertainment in general. If you wrote that in the general sense you really did not deserve other reply but the first one, /am/.

Hang yourself you idiot.

It's always been fucking September you dumbass for vidya gaming since Joysticks the fucking movie came out along with Martin Amis's book on Space Invaders.

It's been fucking September from the birth of this industry.

Please do not proceed to lecture me on the history of this industry and it's popularity.

that would require a dev tem capable of optimization. far easier just for the barely-trained monkes to finger their own buttholes and wipe all the shit off into a big pile.

You should play Zoo Tycoon 2 man, it's way better than the first, but only if you have all the expansion packs. Although to be honest the first one sucks without all the expansion packs too. Making multi story buildings from scratch, gigantic safaris, water tunnels, caves, and pit exhibits that look organic has never been so satisfying. Plus going into first person to explore the exhibits you build is fun as shit too.

A group of autists from the modding community have come together and are currently working on an HD remake.

he might be one of those types that disliked the overhaul. can you believe there are people who like RCT1&2, but not 3?

Anonymous 05/15/2016 (Sun) 04:47:51 [Preview] No. 8558 del
by overhaul i mean the move from isometric to 3-d

Anonymous 05/15/2016 (Sun) 09:29:47 [Preview] No. 8570 del
I never cared about RCT but I can see why some might prefer the original isometric titles over 3d. For example, in the 3d titles, the violence in RCT and ZT is OVERTLY cartoony when it happens. Unlike in the isometric titles where while still cartoony, can take a little bit more liberties with its violence.

3d ZT

2d ZT

The difference between these is night and day. Same goes for RCT, I'd link to vids about those, but the fanbase for RCT is much more mainstream, meaning the vids are littered with shitty music.

REAL CRYSIS 2 WHEN? Anonymous 01/24/2016 (Sun) 07:15:48 [Preview] No. 3417 [Reply]
>In a brief statement on the game and Crysis 3, chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen said: "Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3 came in below our forecast." [1]
>In June 2008 Cevat stated that while their hopes have not been met, the game has reached their real expectations[2] and in August he added that despite its million budget the game has turned profitable for them.[3] By May 2010 the game has sold over 3 million units (and its standalone expansion about 1.5 million units)[4] making it one of the best selling PC games of all time.

So, when do you think EA will get their heads out of their asses and make a real sequel to Crysis?

No-one except benchmarking fagets measuring their e-peens gave a lickety shit about the original. If anyone but EA was bankrolling the series, it would've died long ago.

This meme needs to fuck off. Crysis was no masterpiece, but it was plenty of fun. There wasn't any gimmicky tacked on physics puzzles like Half-life 2, for instance.

(305.73 KB 1414x868 Far Cry in 2005.jpg)
Crysis was the sequel to Far Cry. At the time everyone was still in awe at how amazing Far Cry looked so when Crytek showed near photorealistic tech demos everyone believed them and the hype grew gigantic.

The game ultimately didn't quite live up to that hype and yet all things considered it still set the standard for 5+ years even past its own consolized sequel. Its gameplay was more vertical and faster than Far Cry's, it combined many good influences from Quake, Halo and Battlefield and added unique features of its own like the real-time weapon customization. Crysis pushed the envelope for what a first person shooter could be in basically EVERY WAY. The "tech demo" memesters are clueless.

Any way, who could repeat that sort of thing?

Possibility 1, Crytek making a spiritual successor:
Crytek are a different company now, the genuine PC gamers who loved arena shooters surely left that sinking ship before or at least after Crysis 2. Tiago Sousa stayed for Crysis 3, then switched to id to replace Carmack, making the nu-Doom id tech. So yeah, there's noone at Crytek who could make another ground breaking TECHNOLOGY game with the spirit of the original Crysis. DENIED

Possibility 2, EA:
Would EA set out to do something like this? It's clear from Crysis 2 and 3 that EA never understood why Crysis was a fun game and ultimately a financial success. The mere fact that they thought it was a good idea to move it to consoles says it all. No game called "Crysis" will ever pick up where the original left off. The most realistic scenario as far as EA is concerned would be a free to play multiplayer game with the Crysis name and basic gameplay concept. It would probably lean towards 2 and 3 because they are after all fucking idiots who still don't understand that PC gamers liked the original for the Quake/Battlefield hybrid it was, not for the Halo clone EA saw in it. DENIED

Conclusion: The name "Crysis" won't be involved because EA is squatting on it. Crytek won't be involved because they are a console centric, trend FOLLOWING rather than setting company now. The only way would be a spiritual successor by the original devs. Who knows what they are working on now? I don't. I have no idea if they would like to revisit their old "80s action movie on a pacific island FPS" days and if they are still in touch with cutting edge future TECHNOLOGY or if they've changed paths completely. Overall I think it's unlikely that we will ever see a game like Crysis again. We are seeing and will continue to see plenty of Crysis influences in other games but no individual game will ever check ALL the boxes.

while diablo 3 is really a bad game, there were option to unlock tiers into the hotbar, so you could put 4 tier one, or 4 tier two, or two of each, etc... Allowing you to have more flexibility while playing.

But yeah, that's still Diablo 3.

These, two. At least Mother 3 went out on its own terms. Mother 4 never ever.

Deus Ex is not only the last truly great game in its series but the last one that's roughly in it's genre.

9+10 were bretty gud.

I wish Square and capcom would make old school pixel games like FFIV or MMX instead of what they're trying to do currently with shit like All the Bravest.

Didn't you have to be max level or kill Diablo once in order to do that or something?

I wouldn't say Yggdra Union is difficult unless you're referring to the missables (That whole series has a problem with that). YU is pretty easy and explains all the mechanics in a way people can't get confused. (On the other hand you won't be able to fully unlock the combat mechanic until half of the game which is a damn shame.)

Haven't played Blaze Union or Gloria Union because I can't into moon. YU would be difficult if cards like Shield Barrier or Sanctuary didn't exist.

I've been told they get easier when you memorize the pattern, I think that because of the grazing mechanic and death bombing, top scoring would much harder.
