Video-Assisted Ludic Interactive Systems

Hello and welcome to /valis/, a place to discuss video-assisted ludic interactive systems and miscellania regarding their function, implementation and venues where we can find them. Anything that uses a video signal return that also gives feedback after we commit an action on an interface for the sake of entertainment can be considered here; i must mention i'm going to try to be as off-hands as i can be regarding discussion but we are still bound to follow our hosts' rules plus some comments of mine: 1. Follow the global rules, which are based on the Romani 2012 Criminal Code. They can be found at our Home page but in short they state that we should: a) Avoid posting or requesting information that might harm something or someone, these include social security and/or financial card numbers, registration plates, an asshole's physical direction, comprehensive government structures' layouts, etc. b) Avoid posting sexually suggestive images of individuals from the genus Homo that were under 18 years old, or might appear under said age without ID confirmation, when the images were taken. b.i) In this segment images of "juveniles simulating sexual behavior in a credible manner" are also included, meaning realistic 3D renders are prohibited. Such are the drac laws. - Because of what constitutes "suggestive" is a subjective matter, the "Bas" Dost test can be performed by a judge (in this case the BO or A.C's administration). - It contains 6 questions or factors that constitute if the poster is guilty or not, the number of positives to give such judgement is where the controversy begins but to keep it simply i'm going to state that: If it is suspicious that's a spoiler, if it turns me or a vol on that's a delete, if it is highly arousing to any man then that's a ban - You might back an argument up under U.S. law but this site is based on gypsy land, so we reiterate an urgent appeal to avoid these images. 2. Off-topic discussion might happen naturally in the course of a discussion as one can make a passing comment on many things as consequence of the subject at hand but staying on-topic should be very important, creating off-topic threads and heavily, belligerently deviating a topic discussion are no-go's. 3. Despite /valis/ allowing the subject it is crucial to mention the board is not specifically a video games board, any kind of warring, tribalist and/or self-ID attitude from past and present boards strongly associated with such topic will probably be deleted with a warn or ban depending on the case. /valis/ is a clean slate, board of peace for some to enjoy :^). 4. In the meantime Meta content should be posted here >>3 to make things faster and cleaner for all of us. 5. Spoiler gore and other NSFW content if possible because sensitive ones might bug and harass our host's administration if otherwise. We are currently classified as NSFW but some still don't care. 6. Do not spam senselessly; "spam" will be considered the action of posting more than 5 times something tertiary to the topic at hand or from the reply chain. 7. Do not post e-celeb threads, comment campaigns under a name or invite links to Discord groups. Just Don't™. 8. The blatant dispensation of pills such as the brown, black or heh ones, which don't have WDA approval, is prohibited and their prescribers will be banned on sight. 9. Classic social recreation activities like cue sports and card shuffling do not fit inside the board's definition but are allowed for the meantime due to lack of spaces for their discussion. Recommendations: - Generals allowed and recommended but one can post about a certain subject as long as it has enough "perceived" content for integral discussion. - Please enjoy ourselves in the time of our lives.

Resources & Local Media

The place to discuss and post our assets like banners, CSS ideas or promo material; due to the site's policy of board meta threads needing to be inside the board itself this will also function, for now and reluctantly, as the place to do so too. Be not afraid to comment.

Licensed games

[8VG01 ~ 12/04/2018] What are some good licensed games? What made them good? Did the owner of the franchise just pull the right strings like Disney's deal with Capcom, or did some unknown developer pull it off? Interestingly Shadowrun, Star Wars, True Lies, and Super Smash TV were made by the same people as those shitty Back to the Future games. According to one of the devs they got dicked around a lot by management which probably explains why they were hit and miss. What are some more cases like this? What about games that were ruined by corporate meddling? also, post unholy abominations like the last pic

RIP games

Post games you were looking forward to that are rip. Especially if greedy jewish publishers were responsible. >tfw you will never play as cheeky millennial with headphones flying on his dragon

>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.

Fad Thread

As you all may be aware the vidya industry is plagued by flavor of the month bullshit trying to sucker fags into spending a bunch of shekels on crap that has the depth of a puddle and no long term entertainment. Remember shit like DayZ, H1Z1, Ark Survivial? could almost say generic open world survival shit is going to be the fad of the month They were all popular for a few months before everyone dropped them for the next big thing. At moment it's all those Cheese Royale games that are the big fad with retards moving from one to the next, each time the game being even more horrible.

Man, when did this shift from Nintendo to Soytendo happened? Nintendo used to make powerhouse hardware and tried to dominate the industry like a Chad.

'90s arcades had the comfiest aesthetics. Anon's favorite cabinet? Not just the game itself but the entire thing. Mine is pics related. An excellently put together machine from Sega. As you can see they took a regular arcade cabinet and attached a small frame add-on with curtains, two player seat and gun holsters. A simple thing, really, but it worked wonders in a dark smoky room, especially when you're a kid. The idea was to make it feel like you're in a jeep of sorts as that's the perspective of how the game is played. And they definitely succeeded in that. It is only much later in life that I realized what a simple construction this actually was, but as a kid I thought it was a full scale jeep model. Getting inside, pulling that curtain behind you, taking a gun from a seat side holster - all of that was an atmosphere building prelude, boosted by great sound design that was always emanating even from a vacant cabinet. I remember in circa '98 when it came out there was a queue around it, and that feeling of agitation to get inside fast and in a rush with some other guy next to you only added to the immersion. The game itself was great as well and emulated everything you want to get from a Jurassic Park experience. This was made in an era when licensed games didn't have the stigma of cheap lazy garbage yet and a lot of movie based games were actually pretty good.

Zelda and Zelda-esque gaems

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.

6th Gen Thread

Happy 20th birthday Xbox edition What are you playing, anon?

R: 2 / I: 1 / P: 2

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: Discuss the game ITT.

Advance Wars

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: 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.

Flight Vidya Thread

[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.

Open Source games and gaming on Linux thread

[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.

Retro Vidya Mk.II

[8VG03 ~ 04/09/2018] Previous thread sunseted. Pre-2000 Whatcha playin. >tfw found an old '97 gaming magazine with an article that ends with: "…bright future lies ahead [of gaming]". Why wasn't it bright, anon. Why wasn't it bright.
