Is there a "career" racing simulator game more realistic than TOCA Race Driver 2? I haven't played the sequels to this series, but no other racer has really given me such a complete package like TOCA 2. From the way the SP campaign works, down to the physics engine and damage model, racing loadouts, wheather effects plus simulation it's just so good.

Thanks for the info.

Lately i have been getting into racing games. Currently i am playing DiRT 3 and its fun altho its getting boring. Before DiRT 3 i played NFS Hot Pursuit (2010) and that game was really fun albeit with a few annoying things. I really enjoyed the whole cop vs racer aspect of that game and enjoyed playing as both sides. I didn't like how it would take away control from you whenever you did a takedown or came across a new cop car.

The Collin McRae Rally series was really tight in both controls, presentation and technicality, but I got bored of Rally Racing to be honest. Did DIRT change anything or is it still a Rally Racing/Hatchback Racing centric series?

Yeah, its mainly Rally, Rallycross and similar events but it does have some extra stuff like the Gymkhana and DC events which are basically stunt events but they are nothing special.
But yeah, i too am getting rather bored of rally racing even tho i only recently started playing it. Its just not that fun. There is also very little variety in the tracks and all the cars in a single group feel the same. This is especially bad when compared to Hot Pursuit which was pretty fun.

I don't know about the series after DIRT came out but on the old ones the one thing that kept me pushing through was the physics engine and damage model with the crazy tracks you see in rally races. Granted the damage model was nowhere near as complex as TOCA back then, but it worked. Interestingly enough DIRT and TOCA was both deved by Codemasters.

With that said there are some older simulator racing games without fancy damage models or physics engines that I liked that are not Gran turismo 1-3. One such entry I remember the most is Sega GT Racing 2002. That game took everything I liked about Gran Turismo, and other driving sims out at the time as well as the track variety seen in Rally Racing sims such as the previously mentioned CMrR series.

Granted you didn't see high profile Formula 1 races like you did in TOCA, nor the similarly high profile sports car races from Gran Turismo, but it threw interesting things into the mix. There was an old school muscle car racing campaign, there was racing in snowy slippery roads, racing through towns with really tight corners, hatchback races, with the car's equipment needed to be changed for the occasion. So on and so forth, but what really set it apart at the time was that Sega GT unlike 4 actually had your equipment not just wear down through use, but actual damage you incur during a race.

Additionally in the campaign you have a damage meter, and the less damage you do to your car, the more money you get. Some races and events even net you cars, pieces and cash prices you can only get by going through a race with your car unscratched. It really added to not just replayability, but also made grinding a non-issue if you were skilled enough. Honestly I never found myself grinding to finish Sega GT 2002 in terms of repeating missions, but actually becoming skilled enough to complete difficult races unscathed so I could get special cars or bonus parts.

Very few racing games feel the way Sega GT 2002 does and I highly recommend it, it's not realistic like TOCA 2, but it's definitely a very solid "career racing" game.

So obviously some games in the 8/16/32 bit era have a billion ports. And then sometimes straight up different versions. So lets talk about best versions and those that are totally different games.

These are a start lets get own versions going. Playing lion king in its versions to get an idea. Snes seems to be the best.

>being a graphics whore
>for an incomplete game that was on the shitty as fuck N64

Wew lad.

With that said Splinter Cell 1&2 are overblown in popularity. The only thing that made SC1 stand apart from other stealth games was the fact that sound and darkness really played a great emphasis on the game mechanics. For consoles this was completely unprecedented since no game pulled it off like SC did. Not just that but ever since Thief 1&2 no other games even attempted or did it properly.

SC2 really fell flat on its face since it was made by Ubisoft's B team, and it really shows. The levels are good, but they lack the polish and refinement SC1 had with its lighting and audio system. Plus it introduced casual elements that plagued and ruined the series. Despite SC2 however the series hit its highest point and never got better after Chaos Theory. That game is uber realistic, if you're not a graphics faggot masturbating over vaseline smeared N64 games that is. The lighting system for the most part still holds up today, and the sound system as well.

What really made Chaos Theory revolutionary was not the fine tuning of the mechanics from SC1, or the graphics leap comparable to Doom 3's, but the gameplay improvements and game mechanics additions. You could take down enemies from cover using melee if they were close enough to you, or if you were hanging over them. Enemies would randomly shoot at dark places or inspect them if you dicked around too much in the shadows.

Enemies would act more and more paranoid as you got sloppy during a mission. Patrols would intensify if there were bodies missing for too long. No other game, even MGSV comes close to Chaos Theory due to this. Although to be fair I have not played Doom 3 The Dark Mod, which is a free stand alone game made by old fans of the Thief series.

As I said before though ever since SC2 casual elements were introduced into the series, and Chaos Theory really makes it obvious. SC2 has SOME missions that let you go Rambo, in Chaos Theory you can either be a ghost, or Rambo ON ALL MISSIONS with absolutely no consequence. Not only does it kill the immersion, but weapon's balancing takes a massive hit, since weapons are no longer a rarity or procure on sight like SC1.

There's now loadouts one emphasizing stealth, the other Rambo attitude. Granted on SC1 IIRC there's a great number of missions where you can go Rambo as well. But going Rambo in those is PAIN AND SUFFERING, even in the easy difficulties your aim recoils too much for that to be a viable strategy. Trying to be rambo leads to a painful exercise of kiting enemies around towards grenades, mines, or gunfire while dodging their aim.

Did all the objects you shoot have the same sound in Splinter Cell? I can't remember well, but I think everything I shot had the same sfx and no bullet holes, regardless of whether it was wood or metal, (except for the lightbulbs). That just wasn't acceptable after Perfect Dark raised the standards of environmental damage.

Space Station 13 Anonymous 07/25/2017 (Tue) 23:54:16 [Preview] No. 10958 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I have:
A codebase (/tg/station)
A map that's not been used to death (Omegastation)
A somewhat crappy home box to host from.

I don't have:
Stellar internet connection (ping may be an issue, Works For Me though)
Faggot admins or coders (or any admins or coders at all)
Any special gimmicks that set this server apart from most others, unless you count not having the usual faggot crew on the admin team as a gimmick.
Players to do spess things on a spess station with.

The Omegastation map is somewhat small and only has two Heads of Staff by default, the Captain and the HoP. The HoP and/or Captain can give department permissions of the missing Heads of Staff to crew members as needed.
There aren't facilities for Virology or Genetics on this map at round start. Meaning you'll have to make your own if you want to utilize them.
There isn't a singulo, TEG, tesla or solars, the station is powered by Supermatter Engine only right now. Once I figure out mapping I plan on offering alternatives as I know some people prefer singulo over supermatter and whatnot.

As I said earlier, this is a home box I'm hosting from so the ping may suck ass for anyone trying to connect. I'm just trying to offer some alternative to the big stations on the Hub and places like /vg/station, /tg/station and even the current station on 8/v/ which all seem to attract some serious shitters.

Has anyone played Nier Automatic? I like asses but for some reason she seems so generic with the sword and gothic maid outfit that I'm not interested..

Unfortunately my computer is not that good, and shit translation but I could probably mostly get over that.

I am a little curious as to what is bad about generic looks? I mean, that has nothing to do with the quality of the story or the gameplay. It seems like a stupid thing to complain about. Would changing the weapon and outfit she uses (but nothing else) somehow make the game or story better?

IF you want to play a game to masturbate to, Nier Automata is not the game for you. If you want fast paced melee combat, with some projectile combat thrown in this is your game. Don't expect a DEEP RPG, but more of an ARPG Action Adventure hybrid.

The story is pretty good, but granted I've played Drakengard 1, Drakengard 3, read the Grimoire Nier and played Nier 1, so I know what's going on. Not just that but I know about all the intentional or unintentional plotholes as well. If you've heard about this game's story and want to play it for the story I'd reluctantly recommend it.

There will be quite a few plot points, and very sad moments you just won't understand however, which is where the reluctance stems from. The game doesn't just have callbacks, it builds upon the background lore and characters from the previous games. Of course it's not done in your face, but some of the expansion to the lore will very likely leave you lost or even bewildered.

In case you're thinking about the previous entries Anonymous 07/21/2017 (Fri) 16:20:20 [Preview] No. 10951 del
So then, if you want to get in this game for the story, and are committed enough to play through all 3 previous entries, would I recommend you the 3 previous entries? Not really, the previous 3 entries are all flawed in one way or another. However Drakengard and Drakengard 3 are in my opinion the least flawed GAMEPLAY wise.

Drakengard and Drakengard 3 are odd ones, it's as if someone took Panzer Dragoon series and combined it with Dynasty Warriors while attaching RPG mechanics to it. For the most part it works, but it can get very monotonous specially if you happen to be overleveled. Thankfully the bossfights and boss events inject substance to the monotony.

Nier is the most varied one gameplay wise. However it has two great flaws, the AI and the weapon's balancing. So basically the AI is fucking dumb, it can easily get stuck or be kited into corners of the world map. Their move set lacks variety and they rarely dodge any of your hits. Now on to the weapons, boy oh boy.

So the problem with the weapons' balancing is the magic Words system and the fact that upgrades are too easy to obtain. Some weapons are a little harder to obtain, but you really don't have to go out of your way to get them either. So why are weapons so easy to upgrade? You only need cash to upgrade weapons. So why is it a problem? It's a problem because the game has enemies drop loot and trash you can sell almost constantly. There is plot reasons for this, which will give you some massive feels, but for the most part, gameplay wise it dumbs down the game severely.

During boss fights get ready for some crazy ass bullet hell style shenanigans, but once you figure out the exploit to them, I suggest for you not to use it. Because frankly it takes out A LOT from the experience. Or you can be a cheap faggot and completely break the one thing the game does competently.

Story wise Nier and Drakengard are really solid, but Drakengard 3 just feels like a crappy anime to be honest. It does add to the lore, but the acting in both releases, the music, and aesthetics are just blegh. Nier Automata also feels anime-esque, but it's balanced out with the mecha designs and the story being much more focused like Nier and Drakengard were.

Forgot to mention, that Drakengard, Nier, and Drakengard all have multiple endings to them. Automata is no different either, however Automata is filled with shitloads of abrupt, or even in some cases joke endings.

Because they're having fun with the themes while lampooning them. IF you're a christfag I don't recommend you playing the series Shin Megami Tensei then, you'll want to get an exorcism. Moreover if you're a christfag and are mad that people don't take your kike on a stick as seriously as you do I recommend you fuck off to /horror/ and /pol/.

I don't believe in any religions, partly because the visual novel was kind of anti-religion and it affected me. I just am amazed that when a game set in an alternate universe was localized this summer they didn't fear Christian backlash enough to censor the taboo number like they would have 20 years ago.

It makes me excited that the Japs might be able to get away with more subversive content and accelerate the slide towards irreligion in the West. In a couple of patches Fate GO will even have an Age of Gods expansion where you fight biblical champions like David, Saul and Solomon.

This could be a sign that we've slid from the dark ages when Christians fought subveesive themes in video games. Square (Final Fantasy X) used to censor anti-theist themes all the time because they didn't want to upset Christians, but Japanese culture has raised loyal fans overseas who have grown up exposed to outsider POVs, so maybe they could get away with anti-religion themes today with much less overall backlash.

Fine, but don't call it Satanic, for pete's sake buddy. Playing with religious themes doesn't automatically mean you attend the Church of Satan.
