So, what is next in development? >The same way I improved the site code, I want to improve the database code (the software that actually stores posts, user accounts and so on). It is a very small task in comparison to the time it took me changing the site code, but I want to read a few programming books so give me 2 months at most to get this done, as real life obligations sometimes take a lot of my time. If not, I may get it done in some 2 to 3 weeks. >After that, I think the next step is to invest into board owner tools. We need to have a sense of community to grow, and if board owners cannot properly manage their boards that gets in the way of that. They need to be able to add moderators, moderate the moderators, and so on. >Next, I need to add a proper moderation system where global mods are publicly accountable for what they do, and so unfairly banned users or posts can be restored as if nothing happened. >Then, we need to improve the visuals of what we already have, some areas of the site are very raw, and I need to bring back things that were already working (filtering the frontpage, auto update, donating posts) What do you think? Also, if someone wants to create a discord server for us, I will add its link to the header.

>>4890 If you want a good X-com clone, then check out Xenonauts. It's mostly the art style I love, because it's based on 80s military instructional illustrations.

Can we NOT murder things? I'm so fucking sick of it. I've never liked it, but I've been finding ways around dealing with it as best I can, trying to ignore it. ...but even ignoring it gets tiring, and with the advancing graphics, the demand - the fucking DEMAND - for extreme gore, just becomes inescapable. I know there's Train Simulator and other boring games, but why can't we go on adventures without killing stuff? ...and the double standard is so obvious: Where is Link's Rape Quest? What do you mean "Rape is bad."? Link is a reknowned mass murderer! You're telling me him going around fucking Goombahs up the ass would be worse? Just fucking stop it with the killing. It's gone beyond gross at this point, and it's just dumb and boring. I am not brain damaged. Make me a game.

>>4834 Killing is the most basic sort of conflict in real life, it is hard to base games that are not around the concept of destruction. Anything that is not destruction, is either a puzzle, strategy, rhythm game or a creation/creativity game

>>
Image Thumbnail

>>4849 >Killing is the most basic sort of conflict in real life, See, I disagree. My goto solution for a problem is NOT to kill people, or rip the vending machine out of the wall. In real life that's the LAST option, which makes it the WORST option. ...but why it's in games, is because it's easy to have a point and click mechanic that provides a common denominator: Maybe nothing everything likes your icecream, but basically everything dies or is somehow affected by bullets. What it is, is lazy game design. ...and it's lazy game design to such a degree that reality has to bend over backwards to accomodate it: Being able to take multiple bullets, instant healing health potions, regenerating health, being able to carry ten guns around effortlessly, et cetera. Serving people icecream isn't "a puzzle", or "strategy", or "creative". It's just not bullets. It's not overly complicated to just not be handed a universal tool of "problem solving", and if it is complicated to you, then maybe you're that special needs kid who shouldn't be taught how to use a gun at all. To be continued.

>>

If gamers were taught social interaction in a game, or some sort of real world skills, they'd be more integrated into society. Instead we have legit gotten mass shootings, where guys just went "I don't get how to solve this real world problem at all, but I do know how to fire a gun like a marksman, and so when you get lemons, you make lemonade.". ...but it's not about the dangers of video games. It's about the tediousness of it all, when 90% of all games are just "Point and click at this guy. He's gone now. There's another one! ...and another!". I'm so looking forward to System Shock 3 breaking some conventions, because although it's probably not going to be an instakill stealth sim, it's going to invent SOMEthing. Something that isn't just point and click. Something that will make DSP ragequit his pants because he can't figure it out.

>>4835 Silent Hill Shattered Memories had no weapons and you couldnt fight the monsters at all. That just made it boring. Amnesia also bored me.

>>

>>4889 There was one huge problem with Shattered Memories: The "wave your controller around" analog controls, were just unresponsive garbage. If you shook one monster off you, it was by sheer luck. Add to that that the environments you ran around with, were just quicktime events in a repetitive maze. It was far from a good replacement for combat mechanics. The rest of the game was great, though. I just rewatched Spoony's LP of SOMA two days ago, and that's how you do a non-combat game. The only compaint I have is that sometimes things get a bit too dark, and one or two parts got a bit too empty.

>>4863 Japan became feminized after the economic bubble popped and it became impossible for men to get married because they were too poor for Japanese women's standards, though women lie about Japanese men being "herbivores" or other nonsense. This has caused many Japanese men to just give up on being a man as their society has abandoned them. China has the same problem too, you cant even get a girlfriend unless you own two homes, but strong government control banning homosexuality and video game consoles makes these lower totem men either loyal party dogs in the military or go to other countries for wives. Northern Nigeria and some middle eastern countries have the same problem with women too, but its even worse because Sharia law allows polygamy which allows the top 1% of men to take 90% of women, and the other 99% of men join Boko Haram, ISIS, Al Quaeda, etc.

It's amazing how much the Matrix has us. 30 000 games on the Steam platform alone. Thousands on games coming out each year, all begging for our attention and money, only to ultimately leave us with just some small amount of satisfaction a week or two later. We are paying to waste our lives away, nonstop. We're being told that we're world saving heroes, as we sit in our computer chairs rotting away day after day. Some of us complain about loot boxes, as if that would be the main problem. Gaming is an addiction in itself. 99% of it is nothing but a drug, and that little 1% we learn, isn't worth abandoning life for. We tell ourself that it will build confidence, but confidence isn't a virtue. All that happens is that we become self-deluded, thinking we matter, when we don't. If anything we need to realize what worthless scums we are, especially when we do nothing but play computer games all day. ...and this goes twice for watching anime or movies. The real world is crumbling all around us, and we've stopped caring, because we're busy caring about Equestria or some other fantasy world, "that's in such a dire need of heroic help". I've been banned from most platforms. ...and that's a good thing. The less you fit in in a fantasy forum, the more you can adapt to the real world. When you get banned, it's like the drug dealers are forcing you out the door, saying "You're not good enough to do our drugs.". At some point my ISP threatened to ban me from the internet. In the end I just got another ISP. ...but maybe that's what we all need: To get banned from the internet. There's so much that we've neglected, that we need to do in the real world, that we just don't want to do, because we've got this excuse that "there's entertainment to watch" or "games to play".

>>4875 As a godforsaken pedophile, you have around 650 muscles in your body. One day the antipedos track you down, and your very survival will NOT depend on ANYTHING that those "intellectual" videogames taught you, but instead if you've taken care of your family of 650 children. If you spend just five minutes to each and every one of those children, instead of playing video games, then that will take 54 hours. ...and after 54 hours the first muscles are good to go again. That is "the load" that you have to bear for being born. You are one of the chosen ones whether you like it or not, and if you chose to waste that by playing video games, then you'll deserve what you get. "God and anime" won't be on your side.

There is no prison sentence long enough for antipedos to "reconsider" murdering you once they find you. Meanwhile you're playing video games to "lighten your load".

"This game requires a keyboard to play. You can buy a keyboard at the nearest keyboard store. Working human fingers are also recommended. Ask your local hospital for those. To control the character, connect the keyboard and press down its appropriate buttons. This tutorial will assume the default controls. If you have customized your controls, then this tutorial may be confusing to you. To go left, press down the left arrow key. If you do no longer wish to go left, release the left button. Sometimes there will be obstacles in the way, such as walls, which will prevent you from going left. These may require additional navigation, as part of a spatial puzzle. To go right, press down the right key. It works like the left key. However, it makes the character go in the opposite direction. Pressing down both left and right simultaneously, while possible to perform, is not intended, and therefor not recommended."

Why pay2win games fail at being fun I would argue that games which give their players unfair advantages over other players for money (known as pay2win games) not only fail at being fun, but also fail at being games, they fail at the original purpose of games. First of all: Why do people play games? I guess the answer is different for everybody, but all those different reasons often (if not always) converge into some sort of escapism. Games have always been one of the main ways to escape reality. Especially people who were not successful in reality could escape into any of the diverse game worlds and find success there instead. It didn't matter that in reality you are working for minimal wage and people usually don't even remember that you exist - in some game you could have been a top class paladin, respected and admired by other players for your skills. But now they let you to bypass the game mechanics for money and they give you unfair advantages, which you can use to triumph over other players with higher skills. But that is a problem, because it directly ties success in the game to your real life success. The better job you have in real life, the more money you can spend on the game and get even more powerful in it. There is no way that you can get into the top ranks in these games without spending a significant amount of money. So suddenly you can be successful in the game only if you are also successful in the real life. So where is the escapism in that? There is none. You cannot escape reality in these games, because those games are directly tied to reality. And for me that means that they fail at their primary purpose and therefore there is no reason for them to exist.

>>4844 >posting that thing on enrive pls stop

>>4837 I sorta disagree. I think you put the cart before the horse. There is simply more money to be made if the base game's progression is painfully slow and to level up at the rate of a normal game from a decade or two ago, you have to pay. The leveling rate and progression mechanics in general were intentionally compromised from the start in modern games, this is true for both F2P and paid and not only in MMOs. It's simply more profitable to make an MMORPG free and rely on rich whales that don't have time for the artificial grind and pad the playerbase with children and teenagers keep the game alive but don't pay a dime because they have endless free time.

What is/are the best Simulation-based game(s) you've ever played for PC? I've owned/played: The Oregon Trail SimEarth SimCity 2000 SimCity 3000 SimCity 4 Sim Ant Sim Tower Spore Roller Coaster Tycoon + expansions Catz (Made by P.F. Magic) And out of all of them I think SimCity 4 is my favorite one. Spore is good, sure, but once you enter space mode it just gets really repetitive and the expansion for Spore is a joke. I don't know if it counts as a sim-game but I've heard the Black and White series was really good.

The owner also has Amiga stuff if you go up a couple of directories (with an emulator of course).

What were your thoughts on soma?

I've played Penumbra series and Amnesia. I think this game is not better than either of them, certainly not amnesia which I consider a masterpiece. The horror is ok, but it is not the focus of the game as much as those previous titles. The scenes you go through are amazing, it was a great setting for the game, and the ending is pretty good too as well as the topic of it (robots and conscience). It just falls short on everything in my opinion. The horror is beneath their previous games, the gameplay is more simplistic than both games, the setting is good but doesn't carry the game completely on its own. I feel this game really needed more story to shine (which even amnesia has more, with the notes you read). I give it a 7.5. I wish they would have focused less on the graphics and polish and more on some distinct gameplay for this. The trailers with robot interviews had me hyped, but the game did not have moments like those. Ending was memorable though

>>

The ending was very kafkaesque

>>
Image Thumbnail

>>4680 aldo have played amnesia and penumbra, I thought this was better imo, also the message it delivers was very intelligent and fucked up

>>

>>4681 I kind of disagree with the horror factor, I wasn't very scared in amnesia. I feel the horror factor was diluted, but there are initially some VERY scary parts when you don't know what you are doing. I also found that the gameplay in the previous 2 games were complex to the point of irritation, spending hours in 1 room checking every single object to see if it has a trigger effect so you can proceed, soma just took out those pointless areas

Anyone remember playing this back in the day? Before my mom bought a new family computer (upgraded from Windows 95 to XP) I used to make it routine that whenever we went to a store with computers on display I'd pull this game up, play a quick game then type in "NIGGERS" for my high score. Never got caught because none of the sales clerks ever paid close enough attention to what I was typing and my folks were off browsing in an aisle around the corner. I always got near 1M but I've never broken it which is really lame, I know.
