coming and new vidya General 1

Since some of us likes to play or watch new vidya games either because of a sense of seeing how stagnant it is or because it might be fun or in hopes it might be fun. But before one can give judgement of what is and isn't shit one needs to know what is coming to PC and consoles. since vidya is the ultimate coomsumer hobby there is. So what is new and coming to the newest of new consoles and computers? So let us start with the Xbox Series X n S and PC with Xbox game-pass Xbox Series S and Series X what is coming to Game Pass as of 02/02/2023. >Hot Wheels Unleashed on xbone and series X and S >Atomic Heart Series X and S it is also a multiplat game >Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Series X and S it is a multiplat game >Minecraft Legends Series X and S probably PC but it could be a multiplat game >RedFall I think this is a Series X and S, and PC only kinda game These games was just in the pre-install forthcoming release of games on xbox game pass, what it means is that there is a nice list on the xbox console and that tells you to download them and when the release window is near, you will download them and then be able to play them. This list will be updated because there are many games that is coming day 1 on game pass and on regular stores. New Games on Game Pass these are the new games you can play now and have fun with on xbox Game Pass. >Lego Star Wars the Skywalker Saga Series X n S >Hello Neighbor 2 Series X n S >Chained Echoes >Metal Hellsinger >High On Life Series X n S >Potion Crafts Series X n S >Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan >Stranded Deep >Mortal Shell Enhanced Edition Series X n S >Persona 4 Golden Series X n S >Persona 3 Portable Series X n S >monster Hunter Rise Series X n S >Hi-Fi Rush Series X n S >Goldeneye 007 Series X n S >Robo Ques It is a Series X n S and in Game preview game it is like steam early access but with a super duper promise it is going to come out. >JoJo Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R Series X n S >Age Of Empires 2: Definitive Edition Series X n S >Inkulinati Series X n S >Darkest Dungeon Xbox Series X n S, PS5 and PC releases. I kinda wanna put the indie shovelware trash that is put up on the gamestore because it is kinda mindblowing.But most of these games are full price or semi priced. This isn't the full list of games for 2023 but what seems to be this quarter and that is on the store page on xbox, and there is allot of shovelware and indie shit that is mind boogling why they put it up for sale. >Hogwarts Legacy 10/02/2023 and the xbox one version comes in 04/04/2023 >Wanted:Dead 14/02 >Wild Hearts 17/02 >Like A Dragon Ishin 17/02 >Blood Bowl 3 20/02 >Atomic Heart 21/02 >Wo Long 03/03 >Skull and Bones 09/03 >Monster Energy Supercross 6 09/03 >Clash: Artifacts of Chaos 09/03 >Transport Fever 2 09/03 >2K23 14/02 >Anno 1800 console edition 16/03 >Star Wars Jedi Survivor 28/04 >EA Sports PGA Tour 21/03 >Resident Evil 4 24/03 >Minecraft Legends 18/04 >Dead Island 2 28/04 >RedFall 02/05 >Endless Dungeon 16/05 >Street Fighter 6 02/06 >Diablo 4 06/06 Playstation Network has something similar to Game Pass but it is in tiers, and it costs a bit more money than xbox Game Pass, and there isn't a nice list of new games, old PS4 games or PS5 games on trial which you can play for 2 hours, and no this isn't a joke. Will add the PS5 games that are scheduled to be released via Playstation Store, thank god half of them has probably been put with the official Xbox store releases. Then later it is Nintendo because they at-least get to make and then publish games.

I think we can all agree that Capcom made a fuckload of good games. It's practically impossible to agree on what their greatest game is; so what, in your opinion, is their greatest franchise?

FORSPOKEN(フォースポークン)

The new game that is published by Square Enix and made by Luminous Productions/ Business Division 2 that formerly made Final Fantasy XV. If one wonders how could the Japanese studio fuck up so badly? that is because the script write and anything with lore is written by western writers some cucks and some past talents like Amy Hennig and Gary Whitta. Now one might wonder how does this mess star off with. you are a criminal negress that is established for being a criminal and is about to be sentenced for the 3 strike program. With luck she gets away with it, then she is taken by gangbanger negress woman and a wigger woman with a gun, for not being able to steal a car then the negress protagnoist escapes, and I shit you not. How she is able to come to another world is by actually trying to steal a bracelet which she can see the glitter from afar. Then a portal opens and then she mumbles in negro, and you are off on an adventure. So far the interaction and exploration is alright but there is some cutscenes that are a bit annoying, and the difficulty is a bit too easy, and the shooting magic stone and other stuff is just alright, not too fun or too challenging. The whole thing feels like a game made for white people that want to pretend to be niggers, or what niggers might like to play as a game. While having this candance owens looking bitch as protagonist while saying negro gibberish. For now it is a solid 5/10 graphics is bretty gud but the negro just made a sour taste in muh mouth.

Fire Emblem General

The new and last game in the Fire Emblem series is here! Fire Emblem Engage what is it about? It start off with, you choosing between a male or female avatar and then it starts off with you battling the bad guys. Now you win and wake up a thousand years in the future, and you are greeted by a loli calld Framme and shota, called Clanne then an old duder called vander, and you learn that you have amnesia then later you meet your mother which is a divine dragon mommy called Lumera, and can turn on her will. Also you learn yourself that you are the bloodline of divine dragons, and thus meaning you are divine and then the emblems are rings of past hero. and the bad guy or the Fell dragon has awoken again! And you are on a journey to fight evil or The Corrupted. Now, is the gameplay any good? There is the walking around and talking to and interacting with the NPC which is the fwend simulation part of the game, so like the school grounds in Fire Emblem Three Houses you have something similar called the Somniel which is where all the interactions happens oand sometimes after a battle also so you walk around and fuck around the battlegrounds, so if you want you can even adopt animals like a cat, then you have the story being told via cutscenes. The combat aspects is quite good but unlike three houses that really wanted to show a battlefield with each unit, and generally had this epic feel. this is just one on one battles like the 3DS games like Fire Emblem Awakening or Echoes.But now instead of you being a hero with no power or anything, since you are a divine dragon, you have this gimmick of Emblem ring which makes this game copy Fate/Autism to some degree. So these are legendary heroes of time long past that you use in battle and conveniently are rings you can change, and then you can use them to engage in battle whenever you want, which only means you emerge with the hero you have chosen and become a robot looking thing and you are stronger for 3 turns in that battle skirmish, and then you have to wait until it fulfills again to use it. The rings aren't tied to a specific character, so if you want you can use loli and Math or another ring. Also Engage has other things that are more like previous Fire Emblem games like Fire Emblem Echoes is there is a world map also. So it is a solid 7/10 game so far. I am not sure what this game has to do with previous Fire Emblem games except the name and use of heroes from previous Fire Emblem games, I am not into the Fire Emblem lore tbqh. When it comes to waifu's because it is a Fire Emblem game and it is one these kinds of waifub8 games the waifub8 in general this is a 6/10 for now. because it really takes some time before any form of waifub8 comes into play imo. So I guess a Fire Emblem General.

Age of Wonders 4 is coming May 2023.

What is this game? It's fantasy RPG with turn-based strategy. It's like Civilization, Master of Magic, or Heroes of Might and Magic. It's addictive, just-one-more-turn strategy. I'm a huge fan of AOW 1 and 2. The game has a lot of interesting fantasy races and I can't wait to see what races are available in 4. It looks like Mole and Rat humanoids are some new races in this game. Also, the game builds on Tolkien's fantasy genre and creates their own beautiful version. Visually, this game builds on AOW 3 and has very colorful, sharp graphics sort of like WOW except cleaner and higher-polygon, but still sort of cartoony and stylized. Full presentation reveal: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1712860178 Developer thread: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/welcome-to-age-of-wonders-4s-first-dev-diary.1565520/

>1997-2000 >In-engine cutscenes are rarely used because the graphics are not there yet. >Pre-rendered FMVs have matured enough to look good. >Since they are a prominent part of the games, they also have good budget and direction. This was the period of peak soul in vidya.

Man, I'm really disgusted with the state of these NuSouls games. The whole point of King's Field and then Demon Souls was to be an anti-conventional RPG. They were deliberately obtuse, stripping you of familiar orthodox tools, conveniences and mechanics. All for the sake of a more challenging, cerebral experience where you had to git gud. Now we've somehow came all around to the point where they add all the convenient shit back into the games to make them more conventional and mainstream. All because normalfaggots pretend they like these games.

Kingdom Heart Autism General

I am starting this game or nr3 because I want to see if there is a reason why there is this huge autistic fanbase and all of this praise along with the hype for the next 2 games that are being developed. For anyone interested for these 2 games being developed to being published can be anywhere from 3 years to 14 years for the next game. >Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link this is going to be a spin-off title to get the autism juices flowing for the fans. >Kingdom Hearts IV this is the proper mainline game that is for normal people.

/vgmg/ - Vidya Game Music General #5

As long as the platform have games, you can post demos, remixes, vgms, and original music. Rips and Trivia are highly appreciated. Archive of the previous thread: https://web.archive.org/web/20200514004525/https://spqrchan.xyz/mu/res/297.html Since this is /kong/, I will be talking about the Original Donkey Kong game's music. While the music is quite short, it is memorable. With the arcade version, the sound is ran through a low-pass filter which gives the music a booming presence. The iconic intro theme is not from the arcade version, but the NES version. DK and DK Jr. for the NES have a similar sound since they were composed by Yukio Kaneoka, with the in-game music being monophonic. DK3 was an evolution for the series since Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka composed it and it is a bit more complex by having multiple voices playing in-game and using Flight of the Bumblebee as a motif since you are fighting against bugs and DK.

Pointless Time-sinkers in Games

Months ago, I attempted to 100% Dead Rising 1, and the last few achievements were the ones for Infinity Mode. I would like to think that the developers were pulling some kind of joke on the completionists. Originally, one of the achievements would have the player to survive for 30 days straight in real-time. I succeed, but at what cost? A pair of boxers with hearts on them. Did anyone had a similar experience to this?

/kong/ for the Infinity Cup 2020!

Hey there, /kong/ We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if you guys wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament. For an example of what the tournament looks like, refer to http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Infinity_Cup_6 If you are interested, since your team has never played in previous iterations, we don't have either your roster, your kits or logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following: 1) Create a roster of 16 to 23 players, which can be named as you see fit; 2) Create a suitable logo for your board, it can be in any shape you want; 3) Create at the very least one kit for your team, which can be done by using this flat one as a template; There's no maximum on allowed kits, but the norm is to give a Home kit, an Away kit and a Goalkeeper kit at minimum; 4) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page; 5) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup. Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like. I hope to see you guys on the pitch!

Overlooked games

Here you can discuss about games that you think were overlooked or does not get the recognition it deserves back then. I'll start with a game that I have recently played: Barnyard: The Video Game Developed by bluetongue Published by THQ Release Date: August 1st, 2006 Platforms: Windows, PS2, GameCube, Wii Barnyard is an interesting game, especially given the context of how licensed games were treated. To me, the fifth and sixth generation of gaming saw developers taking a property and challenging themselves on making a game that is fun yet stays true to its source material. I have played the game to see how well it stacked up today, and I am quite impressed with its artistry and its atmosphere it gives to the player. Originally, I played the GameCube version, but I revisited the game on Windows.

Infinity Cup poll

Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ ) We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u

Culture in Game Development

Here you can talk about how a game made in a certain location had affected a game's development or how outsourcing its development changes the game's fundamentals. Additionally, how developers visited different locales to get a good idea about their setting. The Dichotomy: East vs. West To see the video game industry trying to find its place in the entertainment sector was exhilarating, because you have all of these developers from around the world with different cultural backgrounds showing off their knowledge and trying to create fun experiences for the player to enjoy. However, as the industry started to mature, it would be a bigger challenge for these developers of different backgrounds to create an experience that would appeal to a different culture or widen the appeal. While this notion was controversial and harmed the creative process of game development (in my opinion), it started off well with a culture looking at another through their lens. This could be further discussed in the realm of social psychology, but let me give an example of a video game franchise that was embedded in this philosophy, Dead Rising
