Any Psychonaut fans here?
What were your thoughts on Psychonauts 2?
I enjoyed it for the most part. Graphics and gameplay were vastly improved, but what made the first Psychonauts so great for me, was its writing, and unfortunately, the writing felt weaker here. Found it to be a lot less funny, didn't have its dark, cynical humour like before, but I guess pic related explains that change.

I like it, but would have liked it more if (Hot Topic warning) The gay couple was less hamfisted. I dunno why, but it seems common for western developers to put gay relationships in a pedestal while normal ones are ostracized. I think they should make these relationships more flawed because, human beings are that way and we can't be all kooky about something which is still being taboo in many societies. Even the silliest romcom has characters with flaws in them. Scholars of the Wilbur Sin for example has a gay couple but it's actually very well written, with highs and lows, just to give an example
Other than that, the Jimi Hendrix level was really really good. I think the game was, because of what I said before, not that great, but it could have been better really.

I suppose if you compare how Helmut and Bobs relationship was showcased with Ford and Lucrecia's, theirs was made to look flawless while bob's and lucrecia's had a lot of problems. In terms of being hamfisted, I thought it wasn't made immensely grandiose, but maybe I'm just used to it as you see a lot of homos in western media now. I just wished the comedic writing had more balls like the first one, them taking the piss out of the mentally unwell was funny (like the milk man) but I guess now the game has to be about being a 'decent human being' by caring about mental health, so you can't do characters like that anymore. You could do both, have comedic moments about how insane someone is while slowly fixing them with care. At least overall its aesthetics (even though in unreal engine everyone looks they were coated in Vaseline so it looks less gritty then the first one), gameplay, and level designs were great. The controls on Raz are way tighter, and the new variety of enemies you have which force you to make use of your new, different powers were definitely and improvement on the first one. I think I prefer the level designs in the Psychonauts 1 as they were far crazier, but in 2, all the levels have a special uniqueness to them, which make them very fun to explore. I think I enjoyed Ford's Fractured Minds levels the most, but the jimi hendrix one was great, very colourful and vibrant.

I think something that was fairly lackluster as well is how the other campers, I forgot the name of them, don't get much spotlight for the whole game until the final boss.
Like, it would have been cool to do some side missions with them instead of just collecting things in the overworld. The one baking was the one I liked the most, I wish her story was more fleshed out.
Even then, I am glad something like this got out. It was better than most current vidya as of late.

This is something I forgot to mention. Yes, I completely agree with you, they're barely used, and all of them (except Sam Boole) are completely unlikeable. Not that there wasn't unlikeable characters in the first one, but they at least had funny, interesting character traits, while these ones in 2 are just narcissistic teens who are 'too cool for school'. But if they were more fleshed out and the game showed other sides to their personality in, as you said, some cool side missions, rather than just collecting shit around the map, that would've been great. At least the Psychic Seven were fun and sort of made up for the lackluster campers.

Well I did sent my PC to a service so I haven't been playing much of it as of late.
But even then, there's a horrible visual glitch with the shadows in The Mountains of Giants that makes it unplayable for me, along with the constant crashes and resource draining.
Hopefully I get my PC ready before Thursday next week. And even more hopefully, that bug is patched by then, since it makes the game look incredibly ugly

For minecraft, maybe try version 1.7.10 with Optifine, FoamFix, and Fastcraft. 1.7.10 is the oldest patch that'll let you play on minigame servers (or any other server that has implemented backwards compatibility, for that matter) So it might perform well? I remember playing 1.5.2 on a celeron like yours without those performance mods, so 1.7 should be possible. If you want to try later patches, the latest you'll want to go is either 1.14.x or 1.16.x .Either of those with the sodium modloader and jellysquid's performance mods (found on modrinth.com) might work, although it'll probably be unplayable, if I'm being honest. There are more exotic things to do as well, like JVM arguments and editing the actual core assets (because using a texture pack actually makes you lose performance, despite being 8x8) but those usually result in minimal gains, assuming you have enough RAM allocated. Worst comes to worst, you could always run minetest instead. Lainchan had a nice server up, iirc, which you could play on. Sorry for the longpost about minecraft, but it's one of my favorites that I play with friends and it needs a lot of optimization that mojang is unwilling to do.

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.

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.

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.

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.
