Just finished The Last Of Us and I don't remember us having a thread about it, so what do you lot reckon?

Personally, it's gone right into the all time favorites and I award it a rare fanfuckingtastic out of 10. Amazingly well written and decently lengthy. Even if the story did pinch bits from plenty of other films & games.

From what I remember the game "slightly" lets up on you there and gives you a bigger amount of stuff. Still have to make every shot count though.

Yeah it wasn't so bad. Having to do the whole of the hospital in one stretch was much more tricky.

I did the DLC afterwards (Grounded doesn't make much odds here, but it's still great), and then read the comics (eh... I've read worse). Now I'm really fired up for a game that's not going to be released for years.

Oh well.

I don't subscribe to the cult of spoilers. Seems like people live their lives in fear of one spoiler or another, but if you read them they can't hurt you anymore and you may realise the game you were looking forward to is a Rian Johnson tier subversive mess and your money would be better spent buying Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

I think anyone who pays enough attention to E3/gaming news to have seen the FFVII trailer will understand the significance of it, regardless of age. Every review of a JRPG seems to mention FFVII, almost every list of top RPGs/Japanese games/video games in general has FFVII in the top 20. I think anyone who follows video games will understand why there's so much hype surrounding the trailer, even if they have never played the game and even if they weren't born until after it came out.

It's kind of like Ocarina Of Time, I know a lot of people who have never played it, but who say it's the best game of all time because it has a reputation of being as such.

Anyone else taken a crack at it?

My take is that, predictable gore aside, this is actually a pretty fucking weird game underneath. It's like they took the main elements of Amnesia etc and then added a bunch of Resident Evil details around the edges. Which sounds shit, but somehow they sort of made it work? Fuck knows how, but I'm up at 6AM playing it so there's definitely something there.

It couldn't be less like RE6 if it tried; it is different in every way. I'll give them credit for taking the risk on rebooting a franchise so hard.

I'm still not sure if I actually like it, though.

it's an incredible, content packed, OTT action shooter with a million context based mellee attacks you might only ever see once but they went and animated them anyway. It's FUN, but it's so far from the early days of RE that it sent people a bit off.

Did anyone see the trailer last week for Resident Evil Village (Resi 8)? Looks intriguing. Ethan and Chris return, looks to be witchcraft and werewolves, set in a snowy European village with a large castle. It's nice to see them trying new stuff with 7 and 8 while sticking to their roots with the 2 and 3 remakes. Capcom are really on a roll lately.

I've recently bought a desktop computer, after using laptops for just over a decade, which means it's time to properly introduce my kids to computer gaming.

However, I'm incredibly out of the loop with this sort of thing. Which games would you recommend for children aged 6 and 9? I assume the likes of Command & Conquer, Sim City, Civilization, Rollercoaster Tycoon, etc. are still going strong. I'm about to install Steam so I'll have a browse on that - most of my friends still into gaming are raving about Rocket League at the minute.

Which sparks an interesting debate about what constitutes a playable game. If a game is presented to you in a purchasable package, but there is a whole website full of supplementary material not included in that package required to make the game enjoyable, is that fair? Do we just assume everyone has Internet access all the time from now on?

It's this kind of attitude that is spelling the death of the instruction manual. 'Oh just Google it'.

Minecraft has probably changed a lot since you last logged on. The game is still the same, but there's a tutorial of sorts now which show you how to punch a tree, build a workbench, and so on, and this is tied into the "advancements" which is like an achievement tree that if you followed completely, I think would bring you all the way to the End - I'm not sure how much these prompts will hold your hand or guide you, but they're there:


There's also a recipe book so you don't have to look up how to build everyfuckingthing like you used to.

I also just think it's a game thats always expected you to look stuff up. When I was into it ten or so years ago, you definitely had to tab out to a wiki or guide to play survival properly. Now, I feel like there are adequate in game resources to complete it unaided.

Is there a specific genre I should be refering to when looking for '4x, grand strategy RPG's? Games that'll let me do all the things in Stellaris, Anno1701, Europa Universalis, etc, but as an individual character as part of the world.

Mount&Blade Bannerlord looks pretty cool but I'm pretty sure my computer won't run it and it looks heavily combat oriented.

Sid Meier's Pirates! was fun but there's just something not quite right about it, and was too open as a sandbox.

X3 was probably the best I've played of this sort of thing, though it can take a long time to set anything up. The pace of gameplay can be really nice for immersion.

What I really want to play is a character who can interact with the game world in such a way as to influence the development of empires, rather than playing the head of those empires specifically. So if my guy attacks trade caravans, the networked towns will run out of food (or whatever). If my guy organises trade caravans instead, he can help supply a settlements demands and watch it grow. He can set up bandit camps to intercept traffic and build fortifications to defend against militia attacks; or issue bounties on bandits. You could go adventuring in caves and ruins and return with a cartloads of phat loot (accidentally inflating the regions currency in the progress). Supply nation X with a magical inventory to turn the tide in their war with nation Y.

EVE Online looks like a very effective medium for experiencing something like this but i lack the social skills to join a guild, let alone run one.

Oblivion or Skyrim would work nicely if the setting was much deeper and you could recruit NPCs for activites other than combat. Maybe hire a house from which to run your adventurer/merchants guild.

Have you found anything like this? Guild simulator or something?

I've gone with Star Sector and Kenshi - thank you to those who offered alternatives; they didn't quite pique my interest like these two did.

Star Sector is very fun. But for a few typos it's very polished; nothing so far has felt like feature creap dispite what appears to be great depth and a lengthy development time (still in Alpha after 10 years?!).

Kenshi looks like it was intended to be an MMO. My specs aren't quite up to par and I've yet to mod in lower textures and other workarounds, ao I haven't played it very much yet, but what I have seems interesting in that boring roleplay kind of way. It's not great fastforwarding while watching your guy mine a rock for 20 minutes, but when you have to sneak by the fight at the city gates while returning your ore, that's pretty fun. Once I start building and hiring companions it should get more interesting.

These two videos really sold me on the games. It was only after that i realised I'd been played by goods storytelling. The gameplay in both is a lot slower than portrayed, but they're still pretty fun when you adjust your mindset.

I've not watched the video but Kenshi seems like a misery simulator. If you play an ordinary schmoe in a Mad Max-type world then of course you're going to get exploited and shat on.

I did watch a video of one guy's playthrough which was the story of how he got into a fight in his starting city, was enslaved, broke his legs, escaped, crawled back through the wasteland, and got into a cycle of being enslaved and attempting to escape by crawling until he eventually died.

Is that a good story for so-called story simulator to generate? Is it fun? Don't mean to be a grumpy sod, I do have Kenshi on my wishlist, but it's just a bit questionable.

I've done it now lads. I was stupid enough to express interest in teamwork within an MMO, now i have to plan a fucking campaign to present to my guild mates. I didn't realise talking about it means i have to actually fucking do it. I'm not prepaired for this shit. I've read it's best to deligate tasks in any cooperation but how can i expect these people to take responcibility for something i suggested? All I offered was a dream, an idea on what could be awesome, but what if all i can actually do falls short of that. Is it okay to give out basic gear that's barely up to the tasks at hand? Is it okay to expect other people to provide the fun? I wish i'd never gotten myself into this. I can barely turn my back and hide - i put my name on this, my reputation.

Tell us about the times you took it upon yourself to inspire others in the games you play. Preferably with a positive outcome that might help me push through this mess ive made.

Organisation of loads of things, I run an online blood bowl league which is mostly an excuse to keep in regular contact with friends I might not talk to regularly otherwise on discord. It has really come into its own during corona outbreak as something for people to do, It has become more than just playing the game but a community hub and people who met through it branch off and play other games from that, which is lovely.

>Use your fucking spellcheck.
Let's see..
My appologies for the transgression. I'm still working on that proofreading habit.

I've analysed the chatlogs and i think i've found the major problems in my approach. Most significant is my lack of consideration to play times and how to actually get people together.
I think the 'build it and they will come' mentality will be worth trying, here; so long as i can commit to a time that's reasonable for the others, some people should arrive. If they don't, it's on them. I think the point is to make a date, otherwise whatever's in the air has no place to land. Other than that i could try approaching pre-established groups.

Second most is my inadequate preparation. For the time being i can offer basic equipment to the party but otherwise it's 'bring your own'. I'm still working on an incentive other than 'to have fun' - but the interested parties seemed keen enough as it is. Still, it'd be nice to have a net gain at the end of it.

For the most part the situation is not as dire as i felt earlier. Just gotta sleep on it and not react to that adrenaline dump.

>Thanks, man. I can still make it work, even if the plan changes a bit. Flexability is surely a good trait to practise.

Exactly these things operate on people’s good will and you can get more out of them if you act as always the positive force without judgement and roll with the punches.

Example I can I give is that in the BB league one of the players without communication just plain stopped turn up for matches with no explanation, plain ignored some people who tried to contact them. There were calls from offended parties to just remove them they were understandably pissed.

Eventually I was able to get through to them, and asked them if they wanted to be in the next season they told me they were depressed and withdrawn and it was for the best if I take them out of the league my response was

"That is a terrible shame. Personally I find these sorts of social things the best treatment for my depression, but I could understand if it becomes a chore for you and you feel socially obligated why it would be draining.
You still have one game left to play this season (vs [a friend they have in real life]) It would be great to see you come out of retirement for one last job!"

From that I was able to get them to play that one game and that was enough for them to sign up for the next season and become a highly involved in the league and the community.
The real problem there was they had built up an oppressive force they didn't want to face, and I could have easily played into that if I had approached the problem differently.

Oh, not judging them, or anyone else who wants to draw porn for a living. It doesn't hurt anyone else, I don't see how it's any of my concern.

I note that Skullgirls got into some controversy going the other direction, editing sprites to take out some of the panty shots. It seems like an odd choice to me, given the game had been out for years by the time they elected to do this. By that point anyone who'd be offended by that stuff must have already made up their mind. There were some mutterings about this being an attempt to make it esports-friendly, but I find it hard to believe the developers had any such pretensions, not least because they left plenty of equally racy content in there anyway.

It's vanilla right now, save for GriefProtection, which allows you to claim an area of land that will be secured from damage/grief. I don't know if we need this or if it'll ruin the 'fun' of natural disasters like your house being cunted over by creepers. But for now all you do is do /claim in your house to claim your first area, then subsequent claims or edits will require a golden shovel. It's a whole thing, look it up.

Over the past few years I've owned at least one decent example of each of the main types of flat panels, and in each case I've been disappointed at some aspect the image quality, particularly when it comes to the blurriness of motion in games. I've also heard anecdotes of people dragging now-ancient CRT monitors out and being amazed even compared to the latest gaming flat panels. Then I caught the above video. I think Digital Foundry are generally pretty reliable, so it's really had me really thinking.

Anyone here have any recent experience?

This is lovely. When did you pick it up?

I know the DC had some bloody ambitious ideas but I never knew they went this far.

Also, is that a flusher in >>23337?

It looks to big to fit on a cistern. Hmm.

Nah, these are just photos found elsewhere. I did look seriously into buying one a long time ago, back when they were still around for £400 or so, but the shipping was astronomical. Wish I'd paid it now, of course.

Here's a bonus Sega obscurity, from a few years earlier: a shitty Aiwa boombox, that inexplicably included a Megadrive and Mega CD. I've always thought it looked a bit like a rice cooker. Yours for £2,500 on ebay.

It looks like something straight out of Space Channel 5. I'm surprised there wasn't some kind of tie-in promotion (that I can find, anyway.)

Ah, Space Channel 5. At a time when advertisers and brands were ditching Michael Jackson en masse (in the wake of the paedo accusations), Sega of Japan decided you should be dancing with him.

Questionable judgement.

I used to fantasise about owning proper arcade machines when I had my own place as well as the money. Then I worked in a venue with lots of arcade machines and they seem like a total ballache. Always breaking down, one of them even ransomly set on fire. If I was more technically minded I would probably enjoy the challenge, so kudos those willing to put the work in.

There are loads of arcade venues opening up these days, usually offering free play machines with a fixed admission fee. If you're anywhere near Manchester, Arcade Club in Bury has a truly exceptional collection of vintage and modern cabinets.

Would you be able to recommend anywhere in London that has a decent retro arcade, OP? Bonus points if it has some pinball tables too.

AFAIK Heart of Gaming in Croydon is the last remaining proper arcade in the big smoke. Flip Out (also in Croydon) have a huge selection of pinball tables, but check the opening times.

Used to go every few months when it was in Acton and I lived in Newcastle, then went by one time and it was just gone. Was a bit heartbroken, so glad to hear it reopened recently. Heading there in the next few weeks.

Are you part of the community? I was always too shy to speak to people but it seemed like loads of people knew each other and had a lovely atmosphere.

How do you think the world would be better had the internet never been invented?

The internet hasn't made the world worse, it has just made the world transparent. There have always been approximately the same number of arseholes and idiots, but now they have unfettered access to a global audience. As any teacher or nightclub bouncer knows, it only takes a few idiots to spoil things for everyone else.

The only cure is a return to elitism and snobbishness. This place is only halfway tolerable because it has a small user base and trigger-happy mods who will happily ban people simply for being thick or lazy. Social media has an open door policy, but we need more online communities that are run like a gentlemen's club, with membership criteria and strict rules of decorum.

We have them, they're called fucking subreddits.

Now that the site has Huel money (shoutout to Bill Burr), you'd expect that the staff writers could rustle up better threads than this.

The problem is the ease of access. Make internet dialup again and the number of twitter contributors typing "<politician> is bad because <popular comedian joke> LOL" goes down tenfold. Mass anything is bad, the internet is just the worst example of it.
