Does anyone have any idea when the sequel to BOTW is coming out?
>>516 No, not even the developers.
Is Skyward Sword worth playing on emulator without a wii motionplus? I tried to get into BotW but I think it's kinda tedious, I'd rather play one of the old, braindead 3D zeldas and SS is the only one I haven't played yet. >>514 I grew up with 64 and it was the first videogame I beat all by myself, but I cannot go back to it, the camera controls require certain dedication to master and the worlds feel pretty soulless
>>518 The motion plus is what really makes SS gameplay special, especially certain boss fight, so I don't know how enjoyable the game would be without it. >I grew up with 64 and it was the first videogame I beat all by myself Speaking of first games, I remember the first game I completed by myself was Wario Land 1 when I was 5. I remember I would play it on rainy afternoons (because otherwise my mom would take me to the park) on my bed and she would bring me toasts with butter and I would smear grease all over my gameboy which made it more difficult to play. I took 1 whole year to complete it, I think the big sprites and the simple but memorable music made it mesmerizing for the little kid I was. Moreover, it's a slow paced platformer with emphasis on exploration so this might have helped me as a kid. I really miss the Wario Land games.
>>518 You 100% need the special snowflake controls for the game to work at all. They'll probably never be able to remaster it like they've done with the others as a result. >>514 Mario Sunshine holds up pretty well except if you're a completionist (fucking blue coins). The worldbuilding was pretty incredible in context, since most games like that had totally disconnected worlds and it had everything in one cohesive setting. They really squeezed everything they could out of it, and the touches like seeing the other locations in the skybox was great.

>>546 Don't know if it tells more about me or about the music, but I can't help but seem to hear gachi remix sounds in that first video
I used to play stepmania
>>546 I don't know about the spyware, can you expand on that?
>>549 For ages the game was packaged with a screen recorder, that automatically ran every time you started a game and send the recording to the server, and an input recorder (though that one has been turned into a feature). Eventually people found out and the then current maintainer defended the decision as an anti-cheating tool. It was slated to be removed, but I never checked if they actually did take it out of the code.
>>548 Development has been revived: https://www.stepmania.com/forums/news/show/62885 I still play it on occasion. Basically the same old, though some of the new themes are very fancy.

>>5702 The game plays in high feudalism. How the fuck is that supposed to look like? The most progressive thing you'd get would be free cities and merchants.
>>5703 Maybe huge peasant uprising or anprim gangs that Balkanize the kingdoms and create separate communes.
>>5704 Who wants to be a filthy utopian socialist feudal anarchist?
>>5705 I mean a society like that is not inherently anti-technology at all and maybe they could transit to an industrial revolution of sorts with the proletariat owning the MoP from the start through innovation in agriculture.

Alright as someone who was a fucking idiot 3 years ago when I had payed all my bills and was just sitting around with money from my summer job and ended up buying a Vive just to stop myself from buying crack(I should have gone with the crack tbh) I got Alyx and here's what I have to say about it: It's meh. Like if this wasn't a VR game it would be burned at the fucking stake for being so horribly average: There's only 4 guns(Decided to take a note from Bethesda and that gun customization made cutting the arsenal in half was OK), combat is meh at best since enemies are all bullet sponges and you can't keep a track of where your body is because you know VR. Graphics are nice but it has the same loading system as Half-Life 1 in that you go 20 feet of some tunnel before changing levels. That being said it's probably the best damn VR game I've ever played due to the fact that it's a decent game, most VR games are either $20 tech demos that have one gimmick and then lose their charm after 30 minutes or are a regular game that has VR support, so having an actual full length game being built around VR and has really good controls as well is amazing. That's not praise for the game btw, it's just the utter state of the VR industry right now. No, Skyrim/Fallout 4 don't count
>>1438 The problem with VR is it's expensive bullshit and there's 40 different versions of it. It's also usually a closed system. IDK if Valve's version is open or not. They have a history of supporting DIY and tinkering with their products, but they've moved away from that sort of mentality toward grasping at every nickel and dime they can get, being a monopoly on digital game sales now.
Is Half-Life Alyx good enough that I should try and avoid spoilers for potentially multiple years before I play it? I keep hearing the ending is mind blowing, which makes me want to see it and avoid it at the same time. >>1432 I'm necroposting here, but one must-have mod for HL2 is MMod. Basically, it takes vanilla HL2 and makes the combat actually good with revamped AI and new weapon models and ballistics. Worth it just for the MMod shotgun, it's fucking amazing, hard to describe why but it's my favorite shotgun in an FPS.
>>1442 um sorry sweaty but half alyx life is the best VR game of all time and deserves all the GOTY awards and should be enshrined in a hall of fame you're just mad because alyx is half black so it makes you want to say the gaymer word have sex incel

>>5725 he was looking to avenge the death of his Balkan village that got genocided. wasn't on vacation
>>5725 He left his country because of war and lack of opportunity to become involved with the Russian mob and only then went to the US. Going to the US and the degeneracy were incidental, plus he clearly dislikes capitalism and can observe and display contempt for the enhanced alienation of the cosmopolitan libs he encounters in Liberty City (which is basically NY)
he's a lumpy, stalin robbed banks too
>>5728 Based. Comrade Bellic will lead the revolution.

Hoi4 Modder, Mexican 03/13/2020 (Fri) 23:20:30 No. 5731 [Reply]
I am a modder for Hearts of Iron IV and I'm currently updating my old mod. My main issue is that I need loading screens/menu screens. The image given is a filler so I'm looking for something different. The images need to be 1920x1440, and they SHOULD be appropriate to have on the Steam Workshop. Thanks!
>>5731 Cursed. Also who's the 1939 Soviet leader?
>>5732 That one lewd Marxist-Leninist cosplayer that became a small meme for doing that maoist cosplay. You know, that one.

>>5751 They're not actively developing content for it rn because they are focused on other games (like HL:A), so its up to the community to keep the game alive. Luckily because Source is easily moddable (and community servers with custom content are a thing) the TF2 community itself can basically take over development by releasing their own updates on community-run servers as was seen with creators.tf's christmas event. https://www.gamerevolution.com/news/625620-team-fortress-2-community-custom-servers
>>5752 I just hope the community finds a way to bring back the lost graphical fidelity taken by Valve before the game focused on selling hats. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w1W5DU4zmAA
