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.

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.

While it's sad for me to hear, it's totally understandable.

I'm gonna have fun bringing in my old characters as NPCs when I DM. So yeah I'm very thankful for your efforts and I had a ton of fun with all the campaigns we did.

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.
Does sushi know any cool games on it? I'm a fan of the platformers the most, but if it's from another genre don't be afraid of posting it.

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.

I'm still in the middle of playing early game Oblivion and just started opening up the Frostcrag Spire which should eventually lead to custom spells, looking forward to it. Been taking a break from Oblivion right now, though.

Fable TLC was really fun, when you're getting to endgame its fun to spawn all the passive spells/ ones that stay on you until they're used.
>Summon lower mob
>Summon ghost swords to protect you
>Turn on shield
>Enchant your bow so it has a glowing aura (multi-shot spell)

There's a pretty large variety of spells in this game
Slow time
Increase your strength with a berserk spell
You can 'teleport' behind enemies like its nothing personnel
And your healing spell when its high can heal literal crowds of people which I always do in the pubs because it makes everyone love you.

I hope they make a of this old system in the new upcoming Fable.

Which games do you think use this technology the best? Personally I think it's done the best in FOSS and Freeware games (Not free-2-play), as they're more likely to actually flesh out their use of generation to make something enjoyable, as well as give the player tools to manipulate their surroundings in some way.

I recently found out about noctis, a DOS space explorer written in C and assembly with some cool generation. It's not as detailed or powerful as what's available now, but it is quite relaxing to play.
I'm not sure if it is truly the "best" in utilization but I like that it is pure space exploration with pretty much no fluff mechanics. The simplicity, while a bit lame for today's standards, makes it pretty appealing imo. You just explore cool planets with enough effort needed to travel between planets to make even small discoveries feel significant.

I've actually been wanting to play Noctis for a while. I remember seeing it mentioned in a thread on a certain imageboard, and I was intrigued. But I then forgot about what site it was from, so thoroughly that I even forgot that I had bookmarked it. It looks just as cool as I remembered thinking it was.
I don't think simplicity is bad at all. If anything, I think more games need some of its fat trimmed off. I think having focused, if narrow set of mechanics is a good thing, though there is still charm in having complexity for the sake of properly simulating a real life task.

To be honest, it has been a lot easier to figure out monster patterns. I wouldn't say it makes the game easier. As far as streamlining, whether or not it makes or breaks the game is dependent on your preferences.
