DmMacniel,

Doom 2 just because of the Super Shotgun and: “oremor nhoj, em llik, tsum uoy, emag eht niw ot”

DmMacniel,

CEOs are fricking pests/viruses. They don’t know what they do or what the companies values are but get bonus payments even when they are running a company into the ground. then they just move on to another company and do the same again.

DmMacniel,

Its a nice flashback to pretty much every mechanic of the original, from traffic blocks to rhythm blocks, keys and jump pads. Every major character is there as well, no Mr. Oshiro though, he’s probably still fixing the Hotel.

Madaline is so round and cute!

Trans can omnidirectional jump!

WWII first person shooters

I’m looking for recommendations for WWII single player fps games for the pc. In particular, I’m looking for older games from the 90s to early 2000s. I always hear how the market used to be over saturated with these games, but after playing through the early Call of Duties and Medals of Honor, I don’t know of any games that...

DmMacniel,

Currently, I play Alwa’s Awakening on the Evercade. Very cute and hard, at times, metroidvania.

DmMacniel,

Problem would be, that the Games you get via NSO are only available as long as you pay the subscription while on other devices the ROMs (or Virtual Console Titles) you put there stay and be accessible.

So yeah, I play my gba, n64, … via other devices or even physical.

DmMacniel,

Evercade - I’m a huge fan of the Evercade ecosystem and if a game is available there I will play it there first.

Heck yeah. The Evercade Library is so~ expansive, and the emulation is top-notch! Love that I can hook my Handheld to the VS as an additional controller, share the modules and savestates between the two consoles…

DmMacniel,

What the frick is their reasoning for this? Retroactively introducing DRM/anti-tampering does NOTHING but cause bad press and weary fans.

DmMacniel,

The farewell Chapter in Celeste. I really don’t know how to do that room with the three dash activated blocks surrounded by spikes.

DmMacniel,

That would be pretty cool for those who cling to Heroes of the Storm. It has a solid foundation and is a nice refresh on the same old formula.

DmMacniel,

I mean, we have Pathfinder which spans over an entire Star system and even beyond but still is a fantasy roleplaying game. (Same with Dungeons and Dragons)

Valve needs to step up on Anti-Cheat

So yeah, I want to discuss or point out why I think Valve needs to fix Anti-Cheat issues. They have VAC but apparently its doing jackshit, be it Counter Strike 2 (any previous iterations) or something like Hunt: Showdown the prevalence of cheating players is non deniable. For me personally it has come to a point that I am not...

DmMacniel,

Valve uses EAC? The fuck? What’s with VAC?

Besides that, EAC works without issues on Linux.

DmMacniel,

Fun fact: Rockstar (back then DMA) developed Lemmings.

DmMacniel,

Rainbow Arts (Turrican on Amiga), Maxis (SimCity) and Digital Illusions (because of their pinball games)

All of them gone except Digital Illusions which became DICE.

DmMacniel,

That game came bundled with my ATI Radeon 8600 XT. It was such a cool game.

DmMacniel,

or by actually being good and play it professionally.

DmMacniel,

Can we get an actual F-Zero? Pretty please.

DmMacniel,

How can it be a technical error when there actually is such a function to begin with?

DmMacniel,

Had high hopes after the smashing success of red alert and command and conquer remastered :(

Following Sonic movie success, Sega teases Persona and Yakuza adaptations | VGC (www.videogameschronicle.com)

“Right now, there are two big IPs other than Sonic,” Utsumi said. “One is Persona. We are introducing two Personas this year. And also, our Yakuza title. I mean, Yakuza is really unique, but that big one is also coming next year too, so be ready [for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth]. “But also, as I say, we are trying to...

DmMacniel,

I mean if there is one guy who could do it, it’s green jesus, I mean Chris Metzen. I still wont come back though.

Is Star Citizen's new server meshing tech plagiarized?

Sorry if this is not the right place to ask, but am I the only one who thinks that Star Citizen’s new server meshing technology is an old hat? I believe it’s the same technology that a few highly scalable Minecraft servers have been using for years. WorldQL introduced this back in 2021, but I think the idea was around even...

DmMacniel,

Server meshing isn’t new at all. But how CIG is doing it, is. The dynamic nature of it is what makes it revolutionary. Servers can be spooled up and retired as needed. A certain area of the universe is under heavy load as there are thousands of players having a small fleet engagement? Add more servers to handle the load. There are some planets and even star systems that are not visited by players? Retire them and just let Quantum (CIGs universe simulation) run the simulation for those star systems.

DmMacniel,

Perhaps yeah, and it sounds like that. But the scale is not really comparable. Or can WorldQL still simulate whatever is going on in unloaded chunks?

DmMacniel,

As always, yeah :)

Space sim Squadron 42 is "feature-complete" and gunning for Starfield's lunch with massive new video (www.rockpapershotgun.com)

Squadron 42 is the single player campaign of Star Citizen, that is supposed to launch as a separate game. It's basically a small portion of Star Citizen, but with a story and ending. I'm still not confident; waited too long for that.

DmMacniel,

It looks so good. And the demo is so awesome. I can’t believe it’s fricking GZDoom!

DmMacniel,

An early access that already had a demo and extensive Dev Logs/Videos. This Game won´t be abandoned.

DmMacniel,

How can one follow on that path of Emilie?

DmMacniel,

[…] Under the tentative new plan, Unity will limit fees to 4% of a game’s revenue for customers making over $1 million and said that installations counted toward reaching the threshold won’t be retroactive,

really? Thats nearly the same appeasement Wizards of the Hasbro offered after that huge debacle earlier this year.

FUCK THEM!

DmMacniel,

me as well… well some months before that debacle but…

DmMacniel,

That’s where you play that game usually yes.

DmMacniel,

If those are the most fatal flaws… well I guess it’s pretty much perfect then?

Starfield Is Seemingly Missing Entire Stars (the local 'sun') When Running On AMD Radeon GPUs (wccftech.com)

So a user on Reddit (ed: u/Yoraxx ) posted on the Starfield subreddit that there was a problem in Starfield when running the game on an AMD Radeon GPU. The issue is very simple, the game just won't render a star in any solar system when you are at the dayside of a moon or even any planetary object. The issue only occurs on AMD...

DmMacniel,

Waaaaait… it was a bug and not gross incompetence?

DmMacniel,

It’s just a general software development joke. Eventually your customers will rely on that bug, because thats how it works right? So you can´t fix it later as it would break workflows thus that bug becomes a feature.

DmMacniel,

Who the Eff would expect planets to be like Disney World!?

“We could have made a game where there are four cities and four planets,”

Three planets and one gas giant (for now), Todd. And those probably have more diversity or non-boredness than your thousand planets.

DmMacniel,

Could be, could not have been. But four planets and four cities was in my opinion quite specific.

DmMacniel,

So it is really happening now, huh? I hope that I can play my Toreador again! We shall have fun :)

DmMacniel,

Such a great article full of absolutely nothing.

DmMacniel,

Isn’t there a quest in Black Rock Mountain where you actually had to die? Also does this makes resurrection/reincarnation again worthless?

DmMacniel,

Who will replace him at being 4 parallel universes ahead of us?

DmMacniel,

wow, 18 years of service. That’s quite impressive.

Time to download everything for perservation reasons.

DmMacniel,

Sure but I wouldn’t call

making their games as extensible as possible

hard work since it has always been like that.

DmMacniel,

Bethesda would need to completely rework their tooling and engine to block out this core philosophy.

DmMacniel,

We shall see with CreationEngine 2 if they would removed that facette. But I doubt it since its the essential core of that engine to be extensible.

DmMacniel,

I only remember that it could render it rather difficult. but not that difficult. thanks for clarifying :)
