A free (libre & gratis) arena shooter.

A couple polls from the past were posted to endchan before, so I figured to make a new thread. The player population is small, so games are coordinated to get everyone on at the same times.

Sorry it's been a while.
Additionally there is a 2v2 event coming up for the month of November. There has been a duel ladder event for the month of October, and it's continuing for November as well. Sign ups for both events are currently open (for the 2v2 you need to find a partner to sign up with).

It's been a while and we're still around by the way.
December is coming up and there is a respective duel event for it. You don't need to be good, and new/rusted players are encourage to participate and play amongst each other as duel is a good way to improve.

https://finalchan.net/v/res/934.html

Most of us are from 8chan, but there's also a thread on finalchan, with players from lainchan still. Feel free to link the endchan thread.

Video game related trolling advice that has some half truths to them

>invest points into swimming for Deus Ex

Granted, rebreathers if you can micromanage things properly make the under water stuff easy to go through, but swimming really helps out significantly.

Shit tier if you don't have enough HP to tank the lead your face will be full of

>tranqs

Shit tier unless you level up handguns, since unlike MGS2+ it takes a while for the tranqs to take effect

>LAMs

Require stealth to acquire, but certainly they're fun

>speed aug

Shit tier at the start unless you're lucky enough to have chosen the GEP gun.

Just get behind cover, wait for the aim to settle down, lean out, shoot, get back, and wait. It only fails if they come to you, in which case burn them.

>get back, and wait. It only fails if they come to you

Which always happens, since if you don't remember darts can only be shot from a mini crossbow. The crossbow's aim does not depend on the aim stabilizer at all. The problem is that it has some pathetic as shit range unless you practice with it on curving your shots. Even then the range is so myopic it's not worth bothering with it.

And even running past you still have a second before they shoot so you can dart if you see where you're going. In fact you're supposed to do this against the turrets in the underwater lab.

>crossbow
>myopic
If you're not in range, the guards can't see you either.

Excessive Effects Anonymous 02/06/2016 (Sat) 05:33:28 [Preview] No. 4238 [Reply]
Does anyone else feel somewhat dizzy whenever playing newer games? Things like in the Dying Light pic, despite running at a decent FoV and max settings with constant 60fps still feel dizzy. It's hard to focus on things, and I just end up getting a headache while trying to get a clear picture of what the fuck is going on during fights or ESPECIALLY cutscenes. It's not even this game specifically, I've had this problem with a lot of games for a few years now.

Meanwhile with things like the Blade of Darkness pic, it just feels crystal clear and actually pleasant to play.

I think having more effects makes it more marketable, I am sure most devs would like to focus in other areas, but when it comes down to it, marketing team gets final say.

This is why I hated M&B Warband. The original game had just the perfect level of graphics, so you could see clearly what was happening. Then they added terrible mocap animations on these San Andreas-tier models, and I can't see whats happening in the reflexive combat.

Max payne 3 Anonymous 01/11/2016 (Mon) 01:59:33 [Preview] No. 1916 [Reply]
so i just finished max payne 3, and god damn is it an insult to the franchise ( really just the first one because the second one was about half as bad as this one)

I fucking hate rockstar, there never quite sure if they want to make a movie, or a game, and end up with neither. First off, i had to sit and watch fucking cutscenes for the first 20 minutes to set up everything and get it out of the way, which is an obnoxious amout of time, i want to play a game, not watch a fucking movie. then, and i can only assume they do this because "muh immerseion," instead of making clear delineations between cutscene and game, they like to throw you right back into the game the second the cutscene ends. this sounds immersive™ on paper, but for me, it meant i couldnt relax and take my hands off the KB+M and enjoy the fucking 3 minute movie because i had to be on the alert for when the game threw me back into the shooting.

oh, and another thing, after every.fucking.cutscene. max pulls out his fucking pistol, even though i have a rifle. WHY WOULD I WANT TO USE THE PISTOL IF IM HOLDING THE RIFLE? LET ME KEEP THE GODDAMN RIFLE EQUIPPED. THIS WOULDNT EVEN BE A PROBLEM IF YOU DIDNT IMMEDIATELY TAKE ME OUT OF THE CUTSCENE WITH BADGUYS IN MY FACE. FUCK, sometimes, id be given control back out of cover while being fired at and immediately die. not to mention the stupid fucking gun selection wheel is designed with gamepads in mind.

and thats another thing? why the FUCK am i taking cover? why is this even an option? this is max payne, not Gears of war. to further incentivise taking cover, shootdodge is nerfed to shit ( it takes max a second has to hunch is lard ass in the direction you jump and then max will just lay on the floor until you make him get up, and he gets up incredibly slowly) not to mention the enviroment is so incredibly cluttered or narrow in most places you cant even really take advantage of shootdodging without hitting something the moment you jump and being knocked out of it and on the floor.

i thought of some story driven open world games that HAVE a story and DO NOT have the MAIN plotline riddled with betrayal: Jagged alliance 2, oblivion, skyrim. frankly i dont know why i didnt think of them before.

granted, these games do feature elements of betrayal, and it would be to their detriment if they did not, but these games prove that it is possible to make an open world story that does not revolve around using cookie-cutter scripts. If anything, this shows that rockstar is just a bunch of lazy hacks who just so happened to have one of the best viral marketing campaigns of all time. well that and their games are impressive in other respects, or were depending on who you talk to.

Hey fuck you man, Max Payne 3 is a excellent piece of cake as the whole franchise. First, this is Max Payne and not another fucking random shitty shooter Activison's game , is suppose to have a cutscenes developing the main story of the game, if you wanted cheap scenes and low budget dialogues, go play GTA and get your ass out of here. Second, do you really want to see a "loading" screen after a cutscene ? Seriously, dude. You're in the 7th consoles generation and not playing a fucking N64, it's suppose to have inovation like the cutscenes interacting with the properly gameplay and giving a more realistic tone to the game. So, if you want crappy gameplays, go back to Playstation 2.

>why the FUCK am i taking cover?

Because you're in a gunbattle, dumbass. That's what people do when they are in situations like that.

>why is this even an option? this is max payne, not Gears of war

Play the Oldschool mode, fucking retard.

>, is suppose to have a cutscenes developing the main story of the game

When the cutscenes are shit, and take away control from the player for too long it's a problem. There's also the shitty as fuck pseudo cutscenes where you're only able to walk in one direction, or preform VERY specific actions.

>go play GTA

The series that has retarded over drawn cutscenes you have to see or miss out on mission objectives plus hints?

>That's what people do when they are in situations like that.

In MP1 and arguably MP2 Max's abilities are anything but normal, it's like something out of the game Path Of Neo, but without the martial arts.

>play the oldschool mode

Sure, but that doesn't do away with the shitty level design that's geared towards shitty cover based shooting. Nor does it do away with the GTA/MP2 inspired level design as this post below adequately pointed out in a nutshell.

>If you wanted cheap scenes and low budget dialogs,
To be completely honest 'Cheap scenes and low budget dialogs' sound like they have a better chance at being good than your average funded-from-the-getgo AAA blockbusters. Which this this game portrays pretty well.

I still remember cringing hard at Max insulting himself and his own when he gets mugged as soon as he enters the favelas
>"[...] they hate people like me, and they have good reason to. I'm one of the tourists looking through hardened glass at them before cozying up back in a hotel [...]" or something along those lines
It's not even like it fits the character: he says this as he is determined enough to find the purposefully despicable rich girl/guy/whoever -- oh wait, they were actually just party-absorbed somewhat nice individuals that didn't even rub him the wrong way but he still goes out of his way to hate them just 'case the author can't contain his faggotry to his twitter feed -- and you know what? I'm done reminiscing more of this game, Undertale was less cringeworthy and it was barely a game.
At the end of the day Gameplay could have saved it, but it was obviously made to play on Normal mode -the cover system is so slow it makes the Guys of War look like world champion sprinters- taking away even further the little replayability it had. It was such a wreck I didn't realize it had good gunplay until I someone pointed it out to me, but little good it does to a game that is physically uncomfortable to play.

Just now I'm listening to Brad Wardell brag about how companies like Paradox bypass the media because journos don't prioritize exposure based on how bloated the budget gets. Top topping kek. Corruption only sucks when you're not the one getting a share. Here's some effective and customer-friendly grassroots marketing for Paradox, I bet.
