>>1453 >>1456 Rockstar has been on a steady decline since RDR2 in 2009 and on a downfall since V's development around 2012. RDR3 was technically very good but the story and intrusiveness in the gameplay nullified most of its fun at times. These "remasters" were just cricket fan ports into Unreal rather than real refining of the old games. There's been several compilations of bugs and not a month has underwent, there's even a one hour video about them.
>>1490 Yeah that's the new trend to outsource these "remasters" to third world poojeet shitholes. Same thing happened with Prince of Persia. I guess the funniest thing is that there are normalfags who defend this shit.

Why aren't you playing FOMO3D, anon? The pot is up to $72,000 USD already and even a modest stack of keys produces about $100 a day of passive dividends. Reminder that the winner of the first round when this was played in 2018 got ETH worth millions now. This round is being played on the Binance Chain so the gas fees are only about $0.20 and even the smallest investment prints. Go here and spend $50 on some keys. You'll thank me later: fomo3d.net/17 Discuss the game ITT.

Columns is possibly my favorite Genesis game. I ended up getting really in the zone once and made it to 111 starting on hard mode. I've never been able to replicate that feat since. Now I can't even get 10 levels in without dying. Yoshi's Cookie is underrated. I'd much rather play that than Tetris, which I've never gotten the appeal of.
>>1380 Tetris is the grandad. People played it when nothing else was around.
>>1381 I understand that it's historically important, but I don't find the mechanics to be very enticing.

>>1384 You're looking at it through a prism of spoiled modernity. Nowadays I won't really play it myself but back in the early '90s I had one of those brick games with tetris, and being able to play it on the go was very enticing indeed.
>>1386 Even as a kid I didn't like it. I just played Dr. Mario instead.

Advance Wars Anonymous 10/14/2021 (Thu) 06:24:49 No.985 [Reply]
I must confess it's been an age since I last played this but I remember it being comfy as fuck to play. Also that Flak was a Tactical Genius and Orange Star were a bunch of bumbling retards. So Advance Wars time anons. To get the ball rolling I know there's an Advanced Wars play by web game out there that I need to give a go some fucking time: http://awbw.amarriner.com/ I think there was also an emulator around but I haven't heard much about that in a while, if anons care to share info on this it'd be appreciated. I need to jog my memory.

The Advance Wars games are great. They were my entry into turn-based strategy games and reason enough to own a Game Boy Advance back in the day.
>>1359 Man I miss GBA days.

[8VG07 ~ 03/04/18] Time to get this started. News In Acefag news Ace Combat Infinity shutdown recently and there seems to be a hint of a remastered collection coming. IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad released Battle of Kuban last month to skub tier applause. IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover looks like it got a remaster not that nobody seemed to notice nor care. DCS world looks like it's getting the F-14 in game soon. Microsoft Flight Simulator X updated the Spitfire model so better spend those shekels goyim :^) Vidya Unfortunately don't have anything really in the way of downloads for anons to enjoy at present, but hopefully that will change soon. All I can recommend is Ysflight, a flight sim made by an Autistic Nip Student that is pretty easy to get into. Loads of addons as well, could easily recreate the plane scene in game. https://ysflight.org/

>>1344 modded 1946 was the first flight sim I ever played and it's pretty simple compared to the ultra autistic shit like DCS (not counting FC3) and Falcon BMS, which are the most complex I've played so far. I don't know much about civilian sims though, since I've always wanted to go fast and shoot things and haven't played any.
>>1332 Where is AC Zero?
>>1344 Compared to things like X-Plane or Prepar3D, the cockpit level of complexity is babby-tier. You have a couple gauges to keep an idle eye on, trim, prop trim, prop feathering, radiator openness, general engine heat and that's about it. The combat part, though, adds a whole world of new shit you have to learn because, y'know, it's ww2 combat. DCS doesn't really compare, you effectively don't have fucking electronics period. I can only pray that Cliffs of Dover gets a workable singleplayer at some point, but until then and discounting it I'd rate the IL-2 games a solid 6/10 autisms, with 1/10 being CoD and 10/10 being a megamek lorefag.
>>1346 Most of the civilian ones tend to render cockpits and stuff inside rather well and have great controller compatibility but are arcadey as fuck when it comes to flying. Mainly to keep the ratings down for kiddies and grandmas. Still it allows sometimes for fun stuff like Hot Air Balloons going vertical doing mach 1+ and if you want to actually visualize a cockpit they are good.
[End of Dump 8VG07 ~ 12/07/2018] I decided to stop it here for the thread to have space for some posts and near where that chart was being made. Prease understandu.

What are some good Wii games that you don't need the Wii mote for? I had one for years but I can't remember what I played other than game cube games and brawl.
>>976 You can map Wii mote controls to your controller now. Its not like the Wii mote had many buttons to begin with and mapping motion controls to buttons makes them bearable.
Why aren't you emulating GB games with color AND SGB borders? http://www.vgmuseum.com/features/sgb/
>>978 Because I have taste?

Open Source games and gaming on Linux thread Anonymous 10/08/2021 (Fri) 19:08:55 No.258 [Reply] [Last]
[8VG04 ~ 28/03/2018] Given the speed of /vg/ it's probably a good idea if we just make a combined thread for open source games and gaming on Linux. Personally I mostly play FOSS games on Windows and a surprising number are pretty great.

>>588 Mmhmm, so you're a vol abusing your power by casually spilling information about user hashes, and at the same time also oblivious to the concept of a dynamic IP. Thank goodness for that at least, it's the only protection from people like you that don't actually understand anonymity. It's not about whether I want to compromise some of my anonymity, you've just done it without my consent. I suppose it would surprise you to learn that I've been posting in this thread from the beginning.
>>589 I'm not a board volunteer. But there is no identity on an anonymous imageboard and it's counterintuitive to try and "prove" your contributions outside the context of a current ID. You're just whining about the state of the board to no productive use.
>>590 >But there is no identity on an anonymous imageboard and it's counterintuitive to try and "prove" your contributions outside the context of a current ID. Let's recap what you've done here. You start with an ad hominem falsehood, claim that it can never be proven or disproven, and then continue to use it to beat up on your opponent. How about presenting a real argument? You've contributed the least of all to this tangential discussion while hypocritically bumping the thread with your garbage posts.

>>591 Again, go take your concerns about quality to the meta thread. I don't claim to be the best poster or a judge on quality. But this personal back and forth, not so much a structured argument with a premise and conclusion, does not belong in this thread. I don't, in the least bit, have a charitable perspective on informationless whining about quality. It reads more like catty behind the back drama between two self-perceived types of posters. And no posturing or attempt to persuade could change that. I'm quite entitled to my own opinion, correct? But here's an argument since you want one: If meta thread is for meta discussions, and this is the gaming on Linux thread, then you should take your board and site wide concerns to the meta thread. I'll be playing my vidya.

[End of Dump 8VG03 ~ 07/09/2018] Man what a mess, i tried to avoid some obvious shitstirring posts until i realized the entire thread was a troll since the first reply, still it's good to restore this as an example on what NOT to do around here as it blatantly breaks rules #3 and #8. That original ban came 3 or 4 posts too late.
