Are you on team Steam, or are you a local copy kind of person?

I'm on both sides of the fence, but I find myself leaning towards the latter lately.

No matter how much money Valve makes, I still feel like they'll go the way of AOL and Myspace one day.

Or perhaps not.. Steam has been around in some form for over 10 years, an eternity in the software world. Users still enjoy frequent sales, access to the latest titles, and the vibrant social networking. Steam makes it easier for people to organize multiplayer games, and lets friends with like minded tastes stay in touch.

And you can't understate the growing popularity of esports, where Counter Strike and DOTA hold prestigious positions, both requiring Steam in order to play.

There are many other features I could go into with VR, automatic updates, good support for GNU/Linux(Gabe Newell uses Debian iirc), ect..

The bottom line: Steam is convenient, easy, and rules the market.

So I'm wondering, what makes it so desirable to leave the Steam client behind? My first argument was that your local games will always be yours so long as you maintain the data. Meaning you just need to avoid having the games deleted, and if your storage drive fails, have backups of your games.

It's honestly less about any sort of moral values I might have about Steam and more about the fact that buying physical copies of things is not actually practical or even possible most of the time these days.

I don't know about you, but I don't actually have any gamestops near me. Plenty of indie games, or games from smaller companies just clean up do not release their games on disc.

Obviously I can pirate games and then keep a local copy, and I do do that, but on some level I feel like that's missing the point.

I prefer disc but a lot are shifting to digital copies. Saying that, the last thing I bought was a digital version of Torchlight pack; going backup that so I always have a copy.

 No.1598

Honestly, even though I bought many a game from steam, I'm a local storage kind of guy. Further, I confess that I either used steamless or cracked the drm myself for the games I paid for. Paying for a license to a game is right up there with compound interest for "most usurious crap ever".

There may be some games I want on origin or whatever, I'm not sure. If I get those, I'm not sure how I'll crack them, but I'll probably find a way as long as its a single person game that I don't need a constant connection with a server in order to play.

In any case, it looks like either GOG, or FOSS gaming. And the later isn't always bad believe it or not. I'll always like Quake III, but OpenArena is like a kroger generic version of it, it's fun as hell, and I can meet up with people involved in the broader foss/linux/bsd/etc community.

I still have my steam account, but I rarely use it anymore.

 No.1617

I haven't bought games in a while, but when I do I prefer local/hard copies. I don't think steam will go unless the who net dies. Still though, I'd rather my access to what I paid for not be determined by a third party.

Since there was no thread for this topic I decided to do it myself. I'll start.

I've finished The World Ends With You, and I left it fairly cold.
It's partially my fault for playing an undub on a game that has no subtitles for its cutscenes, but even after seeing the ending on youtube, so much feels as if all that happened in the game was pointless. Which sucks because I really liked the game up until the ending.
What is happening with me that I'm not appreciating games as much as I should? Same thing happened to me with Omori, I went in thinking it would be a surreal game with some Mother inspirations but the game was far too tame for me personally. Even after hearing about the topics that the game tackles.

If sushi finished a game and also wants to talk about it he can post here freely.

Finished Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, for the second time after some years.
I decided to play it on Hard, which was a good idea, because compared to DMC1, this game is far too easy. While I complained about lack of combos for the previous game, this one can easily be beaten by button mashing it. Except the last boss, there's no necessity to pay attention to the enemies moveset since the game flashes a bright red light when you have to parry or avoid an attack. This probably can be disabled in options, but the fact that it's in the game by default means that it was designed around this mechanism.
Besides Jetstream Sam, Sundowner and Armstrong, most of the characters aren't fairly memorable except the secretary because she was really hot. Music was cool.
Game's OK, but is not as good as I remember it being. The final boss was really good though, it does balance out the last stretch of the game being a tad frustrating due to enforcing stealth.

Black Mesa. Having no experience with any of the half life universe games until recently, I can see why people are waiting for the third installment. Though the middle part of the game dragged on a bit, the overall design and pacing for the game was amazing. I really like the atmosphere in the starting lab, pre-resonance cascade; as well as the world of Xen. The bosses felt fresh and unique, weapons were very satisfying to use, and the world was very alive. I've picked up Halo since ive never played that, and so far Reach feels like some B or C studio release in comparison.

Have you ever played Half Life 2? It's a fantastic game. I did Black Mesa recently as well and, having never played HL1, loved it. but I felt the big puzzle rooms in the latter part of Xen dragged a bit.

>>1612
Yeah actually. I played HL2 (and EP1 and EP2) first since a friend gifted it to me to stream a playthrough of. I found it interesting, a fun game with some memorable characters (Grigori), and wished I had played it sooner. I picked up Black Mesa about a week later and was blown away by the game. The platforming in the Xen Grunt factory did get a bit tedious, but I feel like it was pretty well done. At no point was I stumped, nor did I feel bored, but spending three hours in the same flesh city trying to climb higher and higher on a tower did wear a bit. The part I was fatigued about was the metro 2033-esque trainride and surroundings. For the first and last thirds of the game you're constantly exploring new areas and worlds of varying palettes and design, and being stuck in a dull grey and orange rocky place just seems rather uninspired in comparison. Even with that said it was the first shooter I've really enjoyed since STALKER Misery/Anomaly.

I beat Yume Nikki tonight after starting it many times over at least 10 years. Everybody always said to not use a guide, but those people are full of bullshit. I did my time wandering, looked up a guide and I'm glad I was able to see it through to the end because it lead me to uboachan which is how I found this chan. I used to browse /v/ and considered myself quite the game critic but ironically, trying to put games into a box and compare them to one another can be so immature. Yume Nikki had none of the traditional game design elements I find in enjoyable games, yet it is very cool and interesting. Can't really judge it like one would with most other games.

My love for games has come rushing back to me. Even though I am young, women have really lost their luster to me. marijuana and other drugs are straight up bad for health and mind. swallowingredpills all day was making me manic and paranoid. I just wanna play videogames. To those with gaming fatigue, you should try playing something you PHYSICALLY out of your comfort zone. Play Switch on a park bench or friends house. visit your grandparents and set up a genesis in their den. your current setting might be bumming you out. Just like a time and place makes a movie viewing memorable, its the same with games.
Sonic and Knuckles almost qualified for my most recently finished game, but I gameover'd at the last sequence. Beat Super metroid, a new indie metroidvania called PSYCRON, and am going to start metroid Fusion tomorrow all to prep for DREAD coming out. Try a castlevania this halloween season like SotN or AoS. You won't regret it.

I recently just finished playing Va-11 Hall-A for the first time. It's not really a game by everybody's standards but it was really comfy and a great experience overall.

Thread for TTRPG discussion and organization.

# What is a TTRPG?
TTRPG, sometimes TRPG, stands for TableTop Role-Playing Game. It includes big names, like D&D, and much less heard of ones, like Song of Swords. The rule systems run from extremely thorough, with rules for things like how many Thai chilli peppers you can eat before getting ill, to so broad as to be nearly nonexistent, with only basic guidelines on how to play. In almost all systems, the key component that sets it apart from video game RPGs is the presence of the Dungeon Master, Game Master, Referee, etc. They help to adjudicate edge cases not covered by rules and create exceptions to the rules in favour of fun, meaning a TRPG has much more freedom of action than a normal RPG.

# Where do I play?
Generally, TTRPGs, especially niche ones without large player bases, are played in-person, but there are also sites and apps that allow you to play over the internet and find groups. The biggest one right now is probably roll20; signing up is free, and as a player, you never need to pay for anything. Other applications include FoundryVTT (paid for by a GM), Maptools (free), AstralVTT (free), and Fantasy Grounds (expensive, but very nice). Some groups even play on Tabletop Simulator, which has the added bonus of letting you play poker or Life before a session starts or if someone flakes.

There's also the potential to show up at a gaming store; if you live in the US, Canada, or Europe, there's plenty of those around too. Gaming stores are in-person, obviously, but they also often boast long-time, highly experienced and confident game masters who are knowledgable at how to best cater to newbies trying to enter the hobby. There are many websites online to help you find game stores near you.

# Where do you get the rulebooks?
You can buy them from places like drivethrurpg, or you can pirate them from https://thetrove.net/. As a new player, you often don't need very many books; both Shadowrun and Pathfinder have relatively complete wikis online with all the setting-agnostic information you need, and Pathfinder even has a setting wiki so there's no reason to buy the books for their content.

Yes, I did get that feeling. Unfortunately.

Since someone doesn't want to continue, I don't think I will be running, at least not for a while. Perhaps in a few months once things settle down a little I might see if anyone still on sushi is interested in a game, but for now, campaign is over.

I hope you continue to explore the genre (?). If you're ddb then I can really only apologize since you came on at a time when the original group was fragmenting, then I had neither the time nor the drive to focus on the new one. If not, well, still, I hope you at least enjoyed the first campaign.

There's plenty more DMs more skilled than me, especially in English, and plenty of players looking for GMs. I do encourage you all to be bold in trying to run if you're at all interested. Until next time.

I got myself a 3ds a while ago, mostly to emulate stuff but also to play games exclusive to the DS and the 3DS. I couldn't fathom emulating them so I bought one.
Trouble is I can't imagine any game on the DS or 3DS that I'd like to play.

Himukai is my favorite Atlus artist. and EO is my favorite dungeon crawler series. It's just cute anime Wizardry, but it does what it sets out to do really well and I've easily put several hundred hours into each game.
I'd personally recommend EOIII as a starting point though, since it's still one of the less punishing ones and has a lot of the QoL improvements the 3DS games have but with a traditional dungeon design, and in my opinion the best RPG system and most engaging story until EOV (though still rudimentary enough to let you fill in your own details).
And most importantly, the cutest collection of girls.

>6 looks like shit though. I can't stand that 3D CGI crap compared to the sprites the rest of the series uses.
bullet dodged i guess

really glad i bought this game, it's great value considering the fact that i'm probably gonna put hundreds of hours into it. it's really suited for a handheld too

How do you deal with your /arcade/ backlog?

Do you keep some time of the day/week/year to find and play things you've always wanted to, or do you act on istinct? I have a shit ton of games waiting in my room (or to be downloaded) but can't find a viable method to just jump in and finish some.

Fighting games with story like The King of Fighters are fun.
