I came across this shit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/5vymei/so_who_owns_the_croc_series/

The Croc game series was developed by the previously dissolved Argonaut, the company comparable to Rareware who desigend the FX chip that basically made the original Star Fox even possible. Nowadays the IP is allegedly owned by Argonaut CEO Jez San, brass at Funfair Technologies and Ninja Theory, both to their own right very new tech oriented companies but haven't made very notable splashes in the software market.

I don't have a point to make about it.

WORM Online General

This is a thread for documenting the development of my video game, W.O.R.M. Gear Online (subject to change in the future). I've been working on this for about 3 months now. Most of the Client/Server code is already done, because I'm salvaging it from a more ambitious project that was already quite developed. W.O.R.M. Gear Online is a 3D FPS, except instead of translating along the ground, the player is a flying drone, so we can translate vertically as well. The bulk of the weapons and drones are finished being developed, but still need a lot of fine tuning (e.g., is the shotgun too weak/OP?). I would also like to say that I'm on the look out for a level designer, and/or anyone else willing to contribute as a tester when the alpha is released. It's all so tiresome as a 1 man "team." Anyways, I keep my chin up, and plod on as always. Nietzsche once said, "An artist needs only his art, and his bread." In those days, paint and brushes were much simpler, notwithstanding period-blood paintings. Happy trails, lads. Will post progress here.

platformer stuff

Platformer is called a genre, but it's so inaccurate that it's essentially a style of presentation, like 2D. It's woefully useless at describing what kind of challenge you're in for because it includes any games that have a gravitational pull to a single direction. I'm always being sold a "platformer" that ends up being carried by some entirely different mechanic but it has an occasional, trivial hole to jump over every here and there. I haven't even played most Vanillaware games yet because they don't seem to fit my niche, but I hate that I have to rely on my hunch about these things so much since reviews don't even clearly mention what kind of details there is to a game. Usually they neglect to mention everything that isn't obvious from screenshots anyway, like when they go on and on about Super Meat Boy being hard as nails as you kinda expect but won't say what kind of physics premise it's using.

Medium gravity, strong jump force and slight slip platforms that stick on contact by the way is how I would describe it. Contrast that with There's No Time To Explain having strong gravity, weak jump force, but boost momentum buildup that results in a lot more physics-based platforming. Both have the thing that's best explained by not being fixed jumping arcs. You can move in air. It's better to assume so for every game and take Castlevania as a special case, but you have to know what to say is the main difference between Metroidvanias and Classicvanias.

And that's not even exactly what I mean by platforming, it's just the control half of it. Although I guess a good game actually includes all possible kinds of interesting challenge for a given set of controls, so you can just rule them as good or bad, but I'm not really satisfied with that conclusion.

HIKARI NO OTOUSAN

Who thinks this drama was written as part of a marketing campaign to make you buy FFXIV? I mean, the j drama about a guy who plays that game with his father, but daddy doesn't know it's him because he plays as a girl and hides his ID. I'm not buying the bullshit that this drama is based on a true story.

emergent thread

I enjoy the organic writing of video games, employed heavily by Dark Souls and, surprisingly, Nintendo games. Stories that are reflective of reality in which they were created, but not metanarratives in a deliberate and ham-fisted way. It does have a fault at being susceptible to LOST style mysteryboxing and seeing what sticks out of the shit being thrown at a wall, as well as the following GAYYYMTHEORizing, but that's only in the case when an individual writer does cut some corners, not the fault of what the potential of the medium is to begin with.

never played a touhou before. It's pretty fun but easy mode is pretty deceptive. It's funny, I've seen fan art for touhous forever and it's almost always been really high quality, great drawings, then I'm playing this and the girls pictures pop up and they're retarded looking in comparison.

I can't be the only one that's bothered by literal children playing video games intended for mature audiences. Especially when it's a story heavy game, it's almost insulting to the developers because the children playing are likely too stupid to comprehend the story. Take Hotline Miami for example. This fantastic game with an intriguing story is saturated with a community of morons (many of whom are children younger than fourteen, believe it or not) who post furry-tier trash like pic related. There's also the old tried and true example of Call of Duty. The classic world war two fps overtaken by spoiled young children with virtual bloodlust and short attention spans.

Children ruin literally every piece of media they touch.

We need a game with new age themes

So the new age people who collect healing stones (just rocks and gems).....do they think they're playing a RPG? I mean they seem to think certain stones will protect them from debuffs like cancer, poison, or bad energies that would power down their attack points.

Sounds like a great idea for a video game...picture yourself walking around Portland, Oregon fighting antifa, angry heavy metal fans, anarchist punks, Wiccans, and methheads on skateboards. Later you must collect the special rings from conservative sororities to unlock the seal on the dean's heart and free Evergreen University from liberal tyranny.

There could even be a level where you have to escort RICHARD DAWKINS past crazy liberals and Muslims into the heart of irrational America: Berkley. In his radiant presence all of the magical rings lose their effect.

Empty boxes

This will never happen because it's inconvenient for each company's own proprietary DRM, but I wish game collecting turned into buying a chip that contains space for the data, plus an universal, cartridge-specific license to download the game from any cooperating hardware manufacturer's own internet store.

This could happen if a single company became like reverse Nintendo: establish their own cartridge format without even having your own console for it. Imagine if Limited Run Games started manufacturing a cartridge and a card reader that works on PC, and console manufacturers were convinced to support indies by including a port for that card reader.

There was this one thread in which platformers were being discussed really in depth. Specifically Sonic platformers in 3d, and I think I have an idea on how to fix the combat while adding to the platforming. Why not, when you destroy more than one enemy by jumping on top of them, the camera changes to bird's eye view?

This COMPLETELY does away with the shitty auto aim mechanics we see in 3d Sonics without compromising jumping speed like in the 3d Mario, Pacman or Crash games.

Lunar Wars

I'm guessing no one ever played it, but it was a browser game that in it's hey day had thousands of players. Every day you would log in and spend production points to expand your space station and buy types of warships, and you could use those to attack other players and potentially capture the colonies they built which would spell a game-over.

I think the creator lost interest and shut his website down after a year or two. I don't know, was there more to the story? It was kind of fun.

Mobile Games News

Cygames (the company behind Granbrue Fantasy) are getting close to releasing a new mobile game called "Lost Order." They have already had a closed beta. Here's the trailer:

https://youtu.be/NYjJsy1jbe8

The art looks pretty good. Say what you will about mobile games, but with all of the affordable content I'm in no hurry to buy a Vita or a Switch. If it's good I'll have to finally figure out how to use an android emulator, because I'm not waiting 2-3 years for another mobile game to be localized. By the time you're playing it the Japanese have already moved on and don't want to talk about what you're into.

I've been looking at some Black OPs 3 footage and it doesn't look that bad. So I'm just wondering aside from Activision being a bunch of DLC pushing kikes, and the broken respawn system plus health kits is there a real reason one should hate it? The movement system reminds me more of Mirror's Edge than the shitty sequel EA DICE gave us. The shooting doesn't get in the way of gaining momentum while parkouring and it's interesting seeing people balance iron sights with wall running.

Are normalfags brain dead retarded, or am I just missing something?

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.

2D platformers

Do you think 2D platformers with anime sprites are still viable? I've been thinking of making a platform with Sonic physics set in the slippery snow, except instead you play as a cute armless ice skater who has to fight by slashing enemies with her kicks. The world would be a fantasy environment that encourages you to explore like Donkey Kong Country 2, and the gameplay would punish you for misjudging your speed or timing as you burst through ice walls.

I am concerned that the current generation only cares about Unity engine and 3D games. I might not even be able to break even if I ever sold the game, and to be honest It's hard to motivate myself to make it if I'm just doing it for free.

Space Station 13

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.

SERVER ADDRESS:
byond://23.123.108.95:35553
The server is currently also listed on the Hub. Just look for Omega_Outpost somewhere near the bottom of the station list.
