who else is hyped for Battlefield 1?


I would be if I had a way to play it. I feel that the call of duty franchise is so far off from what it should, or could have been that I am happy to see Battlefield still around (I know the two games are really different but war games!).

I would honestly love to see, and I think it's time for, another Ghost Recon game that had the large maps with very few players like some of the earlier titles. It was amazing to be laying in the sniper position slowly moving in on an enemy, and then hearing foot steps behind you, knowing that someone was standing over you, just waiting for you to realize they are there.

and then you die.


I'm hyped for another WW1 game, I am not hyped for Battlefield. I won't even play it, I am just hoping that with Verdun and Battlefield out, WW1 will be mainstream enough to get some decent RTS and strategy games made about it


Has /v/ ever tried on a VR headset? Was it your headset or did you try it out at an event/a friends/somewhere else?

I was out bowling in Riga. In the bowling joint there was a bar and an arcade aswell. While at the bar I noticed they were setting up a VR thingy. I sprinted over there, waited a bit until it was set up, paid 3 euros. They gave me options of what I can do and I chose roller coaster. I sat in a sphere like thing and I put on a headset and headphones. It was really cool. Although the graphics weren't the best, I felt really scared and felt myself holding on to the chair so I wouldn't fall out. At one point the headset was coming off and I could see some of the outside world from the top. Otherwise, great experience.


Decades ago. They used to set them up in the mall in the 90's. It was mostly an experience similar to what people imagined the inside of a mainframe would look like. If you haven't seen Lawnmower Man, go watch that, and you will know what I am talking about.

You were able to walk in them at that time, which was pretty neat. Essentially you walked on a trackpad that would move underneath you. Kind of like a multi-directional treadmill with no motor.

It was shit. The potential is what blew people's minds, but the technology didn't advance fast enough to keep people interested. Wireframe models are only interesting in so many examples before your brain stops caring.

A few things happened the last time I played.

>I managed to secure an alliance with both Russia & Hungary

>I rounded the horn of Africa
>I begun Westernisation
But most importantly of all, for the first time in this campaign I managed to take territory back from the Ottomans that they had conquered from me, after almost 200 years of being encroached on


Okay so I am putting an end to the Mamluks campaign at the moment, I am deep in the shitter and don't have the energy to see it through to the end

>War with Portugal to the West

>War with Ottomans to the East
>Huge unrest due to Internal Conflicts disaster starting while I was Westernising
I would post the final screens but for some reason Finalchan thinks I am a bot


Bumping this thread just for discussion about Paradox games in general. What I find really interesting about them is that each one plays so differently. I can't decide if this is a good thing because it certainly shows a lot of effort, or a bad thing because every game has a new learning curve cliff. Crusader Kings II is completely different from Hearts of Iron III which is massively different from Victoria II which is different from EUIV, etc. While it's nice to have different ones to go to when I'm in a certain mood (Crusader Kings II for a story, EU IV for Risk, etc.), this is probably offputting to new people and hurts the new player experience.

It's a similar thing to Civilization, where they feel the need to completely redesign the game each time, which means most people just find the one they like and never move on (it was 3 for me).


I already told you, Crusader Kings is shit and if you are trying to convince people to try more of your games, you should leave it off your list of examples.

Very steep learning curve, yes, but it's part of the FUN.
Just remember, the objective isn't to "win". Losing is part of the fun.
Don't be sad when your Fort dies from hunger or starvation, don't be mopey when a band of goblins comes out of nowhere and slaughters everything in sight, don't be angry when the ogres slowly and meticulously kill off all of your dwarves in graphic detail.
Death is fun.


I don't know man this game looks kinda overcomplicated.


Oh, I wasn't saying it wasn't part of the fun. I was just stating it has a learning curve. If someone doesn't like learning curves, and want to get in and just play, they either have to deal with it or not play. Dying is fun, it's a challenge.


I see this Lazy Noob Pack thing floating around. What is it? Is there a link to it in their forums somewhere? I'm new and I'd like a pack to help me climb the learning curve cliff.
For fortress mode, think SimCity but fantasy and with more death. Adventure mode is like D&D but with a really good DM that lets you do anything. You can vomit and then throw your vomit at people.


I've never played it, it does look fun, but I barely have time for vidya anymore let alone spending 10 hours just figuring out how the UI works and how to issue commands

Hello people, I come from 8chan /v/
Apparently shit is hitting the fan here
And a migration might be expected.

In case the thread is too OT go ahead and delete it.

Another 8chan guy here, I'm getting sick of the monthly drama so I'm probably going to migrate here, seems pretty chill.
As for vidya, I've been playing Final Fantasy 14, not a FF player or MMO guy but I've been enjoying it.
I've also been playing Battlefleet Gothic Armada, it good but the campaign get really stale after a while.


Final Fantasy XIV is pretty good. I'm not much for the story though. I went back and played XI for a while last year and it was actually a ton of fun. Cool classes, cool storylines, going to the past was rad.

Man I wish MMOs were better on average.


File: 1463150629013.jpg (294.6 KB, 1920x1080, maxresdefau….jpg)

I wish I had the time to sit down and play an MMO. Unfortunately, a lot of them have shifted to the point where you need 6 players and 3 hours to complete single battles/missions.

That's just too much for me. Guild Wars was great though.


Migration is welcome here at finalchan, welcome to our comfy community


I've never played XI, heard good things about it.
I enjoyed GW2 when it came out, sadly it got dull once you hit max level and no one plays it anymore.


Anyone ever hear of or try this game?


I really like the trailers, haven't tried the game yet. People say it's good.

Anyone here do some emulation? I emulate on mobile mostly because I play jrpgs on the go, my favorite right now is chrono cross and the legend of Zelda links awakening. I've been trying to do dosbox but I get turned off and discouraged when it take more than 10 minutes for setup and the games take up a shit ton of space

Best emulators
My oldboy

I can't find a decent mobile n64 emulator please post one if you got it


I suggest you emulate Chrono Trigger, it is a classic JRPG aswell. Earthbound is great aswell.

Don't know any decent N64 emulators, sorry.


File: 1462790931523.jpg (164.77 KB, 1024x768, tmp_29945-i….jpg)

I don't emulate games, but have you played Golden Sun? One of the best RPGs I have played. There is a link to of text, so if story isn't your thing, pass it by.


I've only played the one for the GAMEBOY, I've played earthbound and chrono trigger there some of my favorite jrpgs of all time

So, John Romero just dropped a new Doom level…

Image is his tweet. Here is the link to the file https://www.dropbox.com/s/2x2ee3r51986dkt/e1m8b.zip?dl=0

Fire up your Doom engine client!

I recommend PrBoom for Linux users.

So John Romero just dropped another level, one that he implies will reflect the gameplay style of his new project.

This is an update to Episode 1, Mission 4. You can get it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0kw4fqg1tuxpnxx/e1m4b.zip

Romero is working with Adrian Carmack, another id Software founder on a new FPS called Blackroom. With Bethesdas treatment of old properties in the past, it makes sense for them to announce a game while Doom is getting a lot of press (albeit, not great press). You can check out the kickstarter for Blackroom here - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nightworkgames/blackroom-a-new-fps-from-romero-and-carmack

More importantly though, a new level for Doom from John Romero. I haven't played this one, but the last one was awesome.


Very nice. A bit easier compared to e1m8b, but quite devious nevertheless.
If he is responsible for level design in that new game I'm already interested.


Their kickstarter and website are terrible for Blackroom, I just read both things and still am not really sure what the game is about


It's hard to make 'shoot enemies' sound complex and verbose.


Yeah, the general impression from the promo(?) video I got is that they're being sarcastic about everything that's not the actual game mechanics.
Come to think of it, settings of id's universally praised titles aren't all that complex or imaginative, but this never hurt each game as a whole in the slightest.

On the other hand, there's going to be that VR-altering thingy and weapon mods.

GoG.com is doing something called the Bundleopolis Sale, where every 6 hours they put up another bundle of games. Some of the bundles you get to build yourself.

GoG is great for Windows, Mac, and Linux gamers, so check it out. http://gog/com


Unfortunately the Bundles are mostly stuff that I already have which is a bit of a shame. But the Fallout and Radioactive bundles are good value
