What does /v/ think of the Bloons TD franchise?
What about Bloons TD Battles?

I've only played Bloons TD Battles and I don't have much interest in getting any of the other games because a TD game campaign mode isn't really my cup of green tea w/ syrup and milk.

I love Bloons TD Battles. Main reason is that it is multiplayer. I like having a leaderboard and being able to easily compare myself to others.

Some say BTDB is shit. Why is that?


Has /v/ ever made a game? If it is a web game, please link to it, if it is an EXE, please link to the download link. Describe the making of the game.

I was learning JS and HTML5 canvas and decided it was a good idea to develop a simple game to learn all the features. Making it at first was pretty hard, but later I got the hang of it. Found the textures online.

Commander Kurt
Simple 2D shooter I made a few hours ago. Made w/ Unity, language is JavaScript. Couldn't do anything at first since I was using Unity for the first time and didn't know the layout. Learned the layout, was pretty easy doing everything else. Made the textures myself. :^)

You collected ogres, but collecting monkeys is actually a much better idea. I'll edit the texture right away.

>If the crab touches the monkeys, you lose a life

That's a good idea. I'll add that aswell (but after changing the texture).

This is an appropriate use of a trip, right? I need to somehow show the user that I am actually svalis.



seems appropriate to me.


I'm currently making a game. Been working on it since 2012.

I've set a personal goal to not use any existing libraries, or as few as possible. So… I've had to make my own engine, scripting language etc etc.

It's a grand strategy game in space. I started before Stellaris was announced…

My dream is to work on an online FPS, kinda like Dirty Bomb with without the bullshit.
But real life and laziness is keeping me busy
Not to mention I don't even try because I know it won't go anywhere



You could always work on a game like World of Padman. It's a free multiplayer online FPS that's fun, funny, and becomes intense. Plus I believe aside from the assets, the whole thing is open source, so you could tweak to your hearts delight, until you make what you wanted.


What is /v/'s favorite game?

I love Gmod, the DarkRP and Prophunt gamemodes to be specific. I've spent 60+ hours on a DarkRP server in the last four days and 20+ hours on a Prophunt server. I like DarkRP more since you use your imagination, tho, the prop limit succ.

Probably Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I find Metroidvanias in general just very fun and relaxing, and I think SotN really pulls it off the best. I love all of the different easter eggs, all the unique items, hidden abilities, and having so many slots to be able to equip everything too.

Also it has one of the best soundtracks of any game I've ever played. The variety, coupled with the fact that its pulled off so well is something quite rare, and the overall feel of the game is just magical.


I really liked Dawn of sorrows. There was one section that sucked being left handed, but I loved the way you could set the controls so that the A, B, X, Y buttons acted as Up, Down, Left, and Right. Was great for holding the stylus in the left hand.


Dawn of Sorrow was probably my second favorite in the series, but I hated the magic seals a lot and wish there were a bit more inventory slot. Julius mode is fantastic though, definitely the best extra mode in any of the Castlevania games aside from maybe magic mode in Circle of the Moon, and that's mainly because magic mode was broken. After a certain level (not even a particularly high one, one that would happen naturally iirc), you regained MP so fast you could just turn on invincibility and only have to fight bosses.


Of all time? Tough to say. As a kid I remember loading up Ocarina of Time for the first time and just being blown the fuck away.

Currently, I am enjoying the shit out of Verdun, and trying to get a multiplayer game of Stellaris going


A game I remember fondly is the first Ratchet and Clank. The perfect balance between 3D platforming and action.

Just be warned they have some dumb system where they won't let you make a transaction that's less than fiddy sense so you'll need to get another cheap game as well if you want VVVVVV. I bought it with another game that was like 17¢

Grim Fandango Remastered. Less than 4 bucks. Noice.




That birthday sale just got a huge update yesterday. There is a ridiculous amount of games on sale right now. Here's a simple link to see them sorted by discount.

1000 games on sale at HumbleBundle.com again.

Rust is $6.79. Might be time to pick that one up.
Another steal is Project CARS at $19.99.

Anyway, there is a fuck-ton of shit on sale. See if there is anything interesting.



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.

Alright time to get some movement and content on /v/

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.

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, maxresdefault.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.
