Alone on a Monday night, anon? Well, you won't be when you're with us! On 7/4/2022 (This Monday), I will be hosting three events of interest to anons where we can all get together and have fun, away from the hustle and bustle of normalfags. EXACT TIME IS 7/4/2022 (MONDAY) FROM 8 PM UTC TO AROUND 5 AM UTC >What's on the lineup? I made sure to vary the type of entertainment so most people will be able to enjoy it regardless of who you are. The first line of entertainment is a few rounds of Sketchful.io, which for those of you who aren't aware, is like Pictionary but online. I will use my wordlist of vidya or vidya-related topics. Second on my list will be several rounds of various Jackbox.tv games. Will be trying out several different games then people can vote on what they want to play/replay next. Finally, to end off the night, I'll put on some anime or a movie for everyone. I don't know exactly what I'll be playing yet, but probably something patriotic or comfy, like The Wizard and Police Squad! >Where is this happening? The Sketchful.io lobby link will be posted IN THIS THREAD AT THE TIME OF THE GAME (in other words, 8 PM UTC) so keep an eye out for it! The following events will take place in this cytu.be channel: https://cytu.be/r/Saviour I hope to see you losers there! Invite your friends, but try to keep the normalfag levels to a minimum.

Concept Art Anonymous 02/20/2022 (Sun) 22:33:05 No.1945 [Reply]
Why is video game concept art always more interesting than the final version? No matter how good the game is, whenever you look at its initial concept art it's always way more fascinating. Is it just the technical limitation that forces to scale down on all the free-flowing idea spitballing or is it the inevitability of having to scale it down for a consistent, believable world? I always wanted a game where all the 'out there' concepts are actually implemented and not finalized into something more conventional. Post your favorite concept arts.

>>2013 AcId is so underrated. Way better than what Cuckjewma was shitting out.
this is actually something modern graphics could do but never do. whenever you see these concepts in their final form it's always boring generic photorealism
>>3062 very interesting. could do but never do.

Not at all a thinly veiled excuse to post Midna's ass I just can't stop playing 2D Zelda clones, that style of gameplay is probably my favorite, especially when good clones add a little bit of their own personal spice into the mix.

>Modern game has a "minimalistic" UI with stock white text and black-and-white transparent rectangles Instant into the trash. Man, what the fuck happened to game UIs? They used to be elaborate, cool and fun. Having as much iconic gusto to them as the game itself, adding to the experience. Nowadays it seems they're trying to make games as forgettable as possible even down to most basic minute features.

>>3250 I meant more disabled at a click of a button, not in a menu. Also there are games where UI pops up when you hold a button for example.
>>3253 Ah, yeah that's a nice feature, don't see it very often (especially on console where there often isn't any free buttons).
>>3254 >console where there often isn't any free buttons Like what?
>>3255 Many console games use all available buttons for other game functionality, in particular genres that have to compromise with the reduced input vs PC (e.g FPS games).
>>3256 In my experience most games have vacant buttons that aren't utilized even when they should be. I know very few games where all available buttons, which is usually 24, are used.

Games that make /k/ ejaculate (preferably into their raifus) Anonymous 02/27/2022 (Sun) 12:33:43 No.2077 [Reply]
Been playing Far Cry 3. The gunplay is meh and the only thing I like about it is the cover system. What are some games with god tier gunplay and weapon customization? So far the only thing that comes to mind is Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

I was looking at the current state of AI and it's incredible what can be generated. In a few years I guess we will be generating full games, like "a football game with combo power moves and waifu characters, lo-fi 3d shaders, ..." etc., and maybe we will be playing a different game every night just because. Sick.

Basically a thread for good videos about vidya, from documentaries to retrospectives, individual videos and so on. No ecelebs. Oh god no ecelebs. The usage of frontends is encouraged.

I stumbled on this video and found it surprisingly comfy and ruminative. Guy talks about Konquest mod from Mortal Kombat Deception for an hour. There's something about this thing that's just relaxing. https://www.yewtu.be/watch?v=x9jvgVhPryY

Handhelds Anonymous 01/16/2022 (Sun) 20:42:50 No.1760 [Reply] [Last]
Vita was the best handheld ever made, prove me wrong. Pro tip: you literally can't. Have you seen those dual analog sticks? Those perfect dimensions? It's sad Soyny failed to support it properly, not realizing what they had on their hands, instead treating it like a PS3 periphery, a second-rate product. Shamefur dispray.

>>2844 Pretty cool for its time tbh.
And even now I guess.
Do you think they'll make Switch 2? Otherwise when Switch dies, handhelds will be dead likely forever. An end to yet another era.
>>2884 There's been speculation about a Switch Pro since forever but who knows if that will happen? Given Nintendo's track record we can probably reasonably assume that the Switch architecture will survive for maybe 3 or so generations (other examples include GB, GBC, GBA - DS, DSi, 3DS - Gamecube, Wii, Wii U). That may not be in handheld form though of course.
>>2888 (checked) Yeah it's the "handheld " part that's under question. Gimmicks never work twice and you always need some new one to wow the masses, so "Switch 2" will likely have some new gimmick. And that would mean the final death of handhelds. Sure there's some decent Chinese stuff but it's basically just handheld emulators. Nothing actually new will ever be made, death of an entire dynasty. Sad.

The rape of Silent Hill Anonymous 05/13/2022 (Fri) 15:17:27 No.2520 [Reply]
After a decade of shitty western SH games and then a decade of merciful oblivion, annually dodging rumors of Kojewma trying to ruin it with his shit take, it seems they are dredging up this IP to buttfuck it once again after all. Rumors of a new Silent Hill game made by some shitty gaijin studio been leaked together with a few supposed images: >mutt wommyn protagonist >internet bullying >generic western "horror" tropes and look >Anita Welcome to Soylent Hill. Apparently there are several projects in development and the Cuckjewma one is not out of the picture as well.

>>2835 lol i always thought it was a joke but they really remade the main 4 games, it's insane. I can pass the first one and even the second one as a shoutout but 3 and 4 seem like a bad joke from 10 years ago.
>>2838 It's one thing remaking games from 3 generations away, like whatever it's justified for normalfags, but they are already remaking 7th gen games. No remastering - remaking. They're not even using the excuse of "updating old games for new audiences" anymore, like what the fuck can you update in a PS3 game other than the graphics. It's all about the visuals with the normalfag, they are basically paying $60 for a visual mod of a game they already played or can play for free.
>>2835 >“This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it. This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.” Translation: It's gonna be utter shit filled with niggers and strang wamman.
