Yeah, there's BlargSNES and Snes9x, both very functional. Old 3DS and Old 2DS do struggle with enhancement chips tho. Other than that it runs most games fine, and there's also emulators for most retro consoles (stuff like GBC, NES, Mega Drive, etc) and native support for GBA games

If you've got a new model you can also inject your snes roms into the official nintendo snes emulator. They only used it to release a few titles on n3ds, but I hear it runs really well.

I'm really into racing games.
There's something cathartic about constantly improving yourself and shaving milliseconds off of your time, becoming perfect over each iteration over your run.
The physics start feeling just right, you feel the car sliding to corner at a perfect apex on a dime, what a feeling.

Who here likes racing games?

I own a bunch but I identify racing games I play the most into three categories, they're all good for different moods:

Semi-realistic racers:
Rally racing, circuit racing, if it gets too realistic the physics become cumbersome, but it's nice being focused on the weight transfer of the car.
Examples: Sega Rally 2, Dirt Rally, Colin McRae Rally, Gran Turismo.

Mindless tuning racers:

Racing games are great fun. Been playing Wipeout VR recently and it's crazy how much of an improvement it makes over the normal game. The depth perception and sense of scale make it so much easier to judge corners. It's kind of a shame that all the unique ship designs have been changed to a single chassis across all ships for the VR version though. Surely there could have been a way to work a cockpit view into the existing designs. I've gotta try Dirt Rally with this headset too if I can get it hooked up to my PC properly.

Also super excited for Drift Stage and Burnout Paradise Remastered on PC.

What's the status on that? The last time I heard anything was early last year when someone sent me the backer build and confirmed that the physics are still complete bunk. It's a damn shame too, I like the concept and the soundtrack is absolutely spot on, but the gameplay itself just feels like a substandard Outrun 2 clone and it just isn't enjoyable.

I only ever played the pre alpha they released way back and loved it. I don't do kickstarters so I never got to play any of the recent versions. I'll be disappointed if they ended up changing the game for the worse.

They just released a backer update yesterday ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1910344764/drift-stage/posts/2158029 ) so the game's still in active development. Hopefully we can play it sooner rather than later.

I've heard from other places thats it's been really streamlined and casualized with easy to spam combos and very predictable monster attacks. Any truth to this or is it just the usual shitposting.

 No.485

>>473
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. If anything, the first real problem I ran into was the amount of monsters at launch being so small,thankfully, combat is fun enough for me to not care about what i'm fighting, as long as i'm fighting.

EU4 is agreed to be the old flagship that's very beginner friendly. Stellaris is the new flagship that's arguably better and even more beginner friendly than EU4. HOI4 is too beginner friendly, so only play that if you're really bad at games. CK2 is way more in-depth but not as hard, so that's usually the natural progression. Vic2 and HOI3 are seen as the ones that have the highest learning curves, but they're both very rewarding once you get it. HOI2 gets an honorable mention for still being fun to play despite being 25+ years old.

Otherwise you also have AGEOD games which have some mechanics you have to figure out first, but then plays very easily (also the graphics are gorgeous, so that's always a +) with AGEOD Civil War being seen as the easiest to learn.
For advanced players there's also Gary Grisby's War in the East, which is more like west point simulation software than a game.

I remember back when it launched I would play as England and lose against France no matter what I did.
It makes me sad when you get to know a game quite well, but doing so takes the magic away a little.

Dug around a bit from what I remembered being things:
Singleplayer:
- Shenzhen IO (ASM)
- TIS-100 (ASM)

Multiplayer:
- Hackmud
- Screeps (Multiplayer focused, but can be played alone)

Beware, MP ones are VERY not comfy according to user reviews. People who played both of these games fell victim to the fun vacuum of "script cartels" and people who had way too much industry experience caring way too much about the game. I'm still thinking about getting into Screeps just for the SP side and pseudo-JS.

The singleplayer ones are available DRM-free via GOG but the latter two are on Steam.

Oh, I didn't see this thread and I made one just for the game I found.

This is the game

The objective is program a robot and let it fight in an arena.

The interaction with the program it's relatively easy, the real difficulty is on the strategy you use to defeat your opponents!

We are thinking, with a sushi on the irc, to make a tournament or something and maybe streaming it if we get some ppl to join and made their own robots.

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.

There's an unofficial DVD coverlet thread on the GOG forums. The quality varies; some of them are really nice, but others look like Chinese bootlegs.
https://www.gog.com/forum/general/unofficial_dvd_covers_for_gog_com_games/page109

But yeah, theoretically you can burn installers from your GOG files and store them on a disk like the old days. I do miss going to Circuit City and browsing the PC game aisle. Even Wal-Mart had a really cool PC games section back in the day, which funny enough introduced a lot of people to Valve retail releases, which forced them to install Steam(or WON in the early days).

And something I neglected to mention in the OP is why publishers don't use DRM free services.. well it's obviously fear of piracy. And they would be correct I'm afraid, piratebay is full of GOG installers. Nothin' wrong with that if you're in the 3rd world or you just wanna try a game before buying it, but it does effect the supply and demand. There's a lot of indie devs on GOG nowadays for instance, since maybe they feel like they've got nothing to lose and just want their game in front of as many people as possible. But I don't really want to get in a piracy debate, since those tend to be most uncomfy.

I haven't bought a boxed game in years, though that's more because I don't play on consoles anymore. Last game I bought was Smash Bros. almost 3 years ago, and even then I haven't spent that much time playing the games I've got, preferring to emulate old arcade games or just older PC games on my toaster. I used to be sceptical about downloading games but now I just don't care. Hell, I've even bought a couple of games on Steam already (admitedly only because they weren't on GOG). I've been thinking of collecting older consoles, but then I see a good deal of the games are getting ported to Steam anyway and if they aren't I can emulate a good deal of them already, so I really don't know if it's the box or actually playing the games that I want. And most of the current gen games I'd want to play are getting Steam releases anyways, so I feel less incentive to get back to consoles and physical copies.

 No.367

I already have over a thousand dollars worth of games on Steam, so I'm inclined to stay with it. But I don't like that I don't really own my games, Steam could potentially ban me for whatever reason and remove access to my games at any point. Or maybe they suddenly go down and I can't download the games I paid for.

I haven't seen any recently. You could make one. Just go nuts on that screenshot button and write it as you play so that you don't lose track of what happened in the past in the game.
