Hey all, Wargroove is out tomorrow!




If you like Advance Wars (old GBA series) then we finally have a game that brings that back which many have tried to promise for years!

Turn based strategy game with cool Commanding Officers (special powers basically), cool units, maps and more! Made by the guys who did Starbound which is interesting.

I've been waiting for a good modern take of Advance Wars for a long time and still play them on my GBA from time to time.

This game comes out on PC and Switch etc. tomorrow for the ok price of 30$ nzd. I pre ordered cause I'm a schmuck* and buy shit If I like the look of it. 


BONUS: crossplay day 1! I can play PC players etc. from my switch.



*Im going to a Mortgage Adviser on Thursday next week and man I just know im going to get torn apart about my typical young guy no-care-in-the-world spending. Shes gonna be all "wtf is Steam link and Sony Store Eur and why the fuck does it keep turning up almost everyday" "What the shit do you keep buying from Ebay" "Did you just buy Lego?** holy fuck you aint ever getting a house"

So yeah that will be fun.



**I just bought a sweet ass Lego set BRAND NEW AND SEALED cause I snipe me some good deals. Check it out its a fucking pirate ship:

I had very low expectations coming into this season of anime as next season is super stacked (Attack on Titan S3P2, One Punch Man S2, Chihayafuru S3, even the Fruit Baskets remake) but I have been pleasently surprised by some of the shows airing this season. Heres a run down of 3 that I'm watching:

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagri (The Rising of the Shield Hero)
Airs Wednesday, MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/35790/Tate..._Nariagari
This is your typical e-sekai where the main protagonist is transported to another world (think Sword Art Online-ish) which has been done over and over. They seem to bring in some sort of twist each time they redo it and this one puts a real nice spin on it that I enjoy. The basis of it is four people gets transported to this game-like world and are called 'the heroes'. They each have different weapons (sword, spear, bow and shield). They are expected to save the fantasy world by defeating waves of enemies that come periodically, the only thing is the heroes are low level and need to grind monsters to level up. The main protagonist is the shield hero and is pretty much written off by everyone as useless because he can only defend and cant even wield a sword. He ends up getting fucked over big time, loses all of his money and respect from the city he is in (I wont spoil how) and ends up being pretty much driven by his rage and anger at everyone else. The first episode is 45 minutes and is pretty epic, if you watch it and dont like it then you wont like the whole series and also fuck you.

Yakusoku no Neverland (The Promised Neverland)
Airs Thursday, MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/37779/Yaku..._Neverland
This is a mystery/horror about kids in an orphanage who are looked after by one person, "Mama". Kids are aged between 5-12 and everyone is super happy, loving life and awaiting the day they will move out of the orphanage and into a real family. Each child has a weird barcode tattooed on their neck which is a little weird but I'll run with it. They do some weird tests everyday where a score is taken but doesn't really seem to mean anything. They get to play outside everyday where they usually play tag (foreshadow much?). The only thing is they are not allowed to go past a fence which surrounds the area of the orphanage. They are also not allowed to go near a big gate - the only way in and out of the orphanage. The protagonist is a 12 year old girl who is smart and very athletic. There are two other main boys, both super smart (all getting top scores on this test they do). The episode ends with one of the younger kids in the orphanage being adopted and taken through the main gate. The protagonist realises the person leaving has left her teddy bear behind, and rushes after her. She breaks the rules and goes past the gate to hopefully give the teddy bear back, only to find the girls dead body and some supernatural creatures talking with each other. Now its time to form a plan to escape.

Dororo
Airs Tuesday, MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/37520/Dororo
This one is set in feudal Japan where the leader of a town is sick of famine and no money so rather than praying to the gods for help, he prays for help from 48 demons. He tells them if he can rule the nation they can have anything of his that they want. A while later his wife has their first born son. As he is born lightning strikes the house. The baby is born without skin, eyes, ears or anything really. The leader is ecstatic because he knows the demons are listening and hes going to get what he wants. The baby is taken to the riverside to be killed, but instead is placed in a boat and sent down the river. 16 years passes and an unknown warrior who has prosthetic arms and legs and wears a mask is walking through towns. He also has swords for arms which is pretty fucking cool. The story follows this warrior as he defeats supernatural beings and I guess figure out where he came from? And revenge or something? I dunno its only 2 episodes in.

If you like the sound of any of these, give it a watch and let me know what you think. If you wanna watch it week by week I can post weekly discussion threads about all of the episodes.

  Katamari is hella decent
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 08-01-2019, 07:19 AM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (2)

So here's a game series I have long heard of, but never thought I would be into:

[Image: 475731-touch-my-katamari-ps-vita-front-cover.jpg]


Its a long standing series that started on PS2, but man its fun.

I only picked it up because ive been nabbing cheap Vita games before they become ultra expensive (the deader the console, the more they are usually worth). And this was a launch title exclusive.

Really decent game. The goal is to roll shit up in a ball to get it as big as you can, or as the level demands. So sorta like rolling a big snow ball. But you roll everything from household items, to later levels where you are rolling up cites. My fav level was starting in a park being not much smaller than a person, and ending with rolling across mountains haha. Really awesome level design, which is where i think the game most shines.

Very short tho, over and out in 5 ish hours. But the idea is in the replayability and beating your old score on levels plus collecting all the bonus stuff.

Switch just got a shiny new port of the first game, now called Katamari Damacy: Reroll. Thinking of picking it up, but it seems to be no longer than what I just played and they want 30$. Also the original game had bad tank controls. There is a free demo and you are stuck with these controls. So bad. I hear there is a 'simple' control set that makes it more modern (hopefully twin stick like the Vita version) but I cannot confirm this in my googling.

Either way, go by an expensive dead Vita and then a copy of this game (currently 7$ on sale digital) or buy the Switch version and pray the simple controls float your boat.

  Oxygen. Not. Included!
Posted by: Jargonion - 06-01-2019, 02:50 PM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (6)

Hello,

I bought this game because I read one steam review. It said that there are lots of intermingling systems which play off of each other. In addition, it was made by Klei, who made Don't Starve. I never really got into Don't Starve, but I saw the level of quality with which it was made, and decided to give Oxygen Not Included a shot. The game is still in pretty early access, but jeez or mighty I think it's pretty neat.

The game plays as a mix of don't starve and Rimworld. You need to juggle myriad resources, needs, and threats, all of which come with an awesome amount of detail.

[Image: kvWGd6u.jpg]

This is how it looks when you go to start a new game- variables for stress, mood, hunger, and immunity. Hygiene plays a strong role in this game!

[Image: ctxlkSU.png]
 
When you start, just like Rimworld, you get to pick three different starting characters. Each have their own strengths and weaknesses. You also start with a machine that creates new characters on a regular basis, but it wont print them until you decide you want a new character.

[Image: nkr5qUC.png]

This is the team I decided to start with.

[Image: txSvjNO.jpg]

Here is where I started. Before playing this run, I did mess around with the game for roughly an (drunken) hour, to figure out basic needs and controls.

Every little pocket is filled with a gas (or not, in the case of vacuums). In addition, your characters need clean air to breath, and excrete carbon dioxide. This starting pocket was a little too small and scary for me, so I immediately tried to open it up to bit to get some extra air in while I thought of how I was going to deal with this poor starting placement,

[Image: JaQwIzW.jpg]

Just like Rimworld, you have a lot of tasks to do. Digging, crafting, medicine, researching, survival tasks, cleaning, hauling, the list goes on (only a little bit longer). I map out access to the water chamber below us, and then set a few basic tasks to be more important than the others.

[Image: Vilk1Wf.jpg]

I decide to also mine to the right in order to open up a little oxygen pocket. This might have been a poor decision, but I'm not well versed enough in game mechanics yet to know.

[Image: OEOQ3Fg.jpg]

At this point, I haven't quite figured out the best way to set up a pump for this water, but I start making a little area to set up a water collection point. This water is clean, so I'll want to find a way to keep it from being polluted later on. I have also mined out an area to the left of my starting position to be used as a barracks.

[Image: YmSyoKu.jpg]

Some time has passed, and I have a look at my oxygen overlay. Red pockets are bad - the red in my base is carbon dioxide. Because it's heavier than air, it is settling down near my water pump. This is not good at all. I have since researched ventilation, and absolutely fucked everything up while in the process of trying to figure out if I can pipe the bad gas elsewhere. I'll post that stuff up once I feel like it.

Neat game!

Hi guys,

If you like to play games, you should get tabletop simulator. It's really neat.

You can download mods that give you virtually any tabletop game, from monopoly, to the game of life, to D&D, to munchkin, to the old pokemon board game, to mahjong, to anything you want.

It's physics based with hotkeys for things like flipping cards. There are tokens, and pens, and anything else you would need.

We can literally play anything we want together in our own server with voice chat.

Just buy it!

  J'argon'ion Plays: Morrowind
Posted by: Jargonion - 22-11-2018, 10:29 AM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (22)

Hello,

One of us is a pleb who never got into Morrowind. I will play the game, and break it down into English so that they can feel satisfied that they experienced the game without having to play it.

Right off the bat, let me ruin this. I will be using two mods. Usually, I don't like mods and prefer vanilla over everything else, but Morrowind is vastly helped by these two.

The first mod is a multiple mark and recall mod. Mark is a spell that marks a location for teleportation. Recall sends you back to the location that you marked. In Morrowind, you only have one mark location. This is handy, but since the game has no real fast travel and plays  slowly, it's kind of annoying. There was a mod ages ago that let you set...6(?) marks. I can't find this mod any more, but there's a new one that gives you up to 12 based off of your mysticism skill, which seems lore appropriate.

The cedon mod is one for a merchant. There are two 'fences' in the game, and both have more gold than any other merchant. 

They still don't have enough.

Years ago, when I looked for a mod to increase Creeper's merchant gold, I only found one that gave him 50k. That's chump change. For the past decade, I've always resorted to making my own mod to change this. Now, I don't have a CD reader any more, so I can't install the construction kit from disk, but I did find a mod that restored the files for the Steam version.

[Image: bOVptAr.png]
First mistake was installing it in the wrong folder.

[Image: FfBirpd.png]
Ah, here he is.

[Image: rVk5UZG.png]
Used to be that you'd sell Creeper a bunch of valuable items, then come back later with a super valuable item. You'd sell him the super valuable items in exchange for his gold and any valuable items you sold him in the past, then rest to reset his gold. You'd then sell back all the valuable items one by one, resting in between sales. This cuts out all that tedious wait time.




For this run, I will play as a dark elf (lore reasons). Beyond that, anything goes. 

The story is that hundred of years ago, the dwarfs found the heart of a God in a mountain. The Nerevar (some war guy) went and cleared them out with his friends (the tribunal) and an army. The Nerevar and the Tribunal found the heart, and the Nerevar decided to destroy it. The tribunal, and the Nerevar's friend thought "fuck that" and killed him, and became Gods themselves.

The tribunal fucked off, and did their own God things.  Vivec hung out at Morrowind, suspending a meteor over the temple city built around him (after he died, the meteor hit the city and wiped out Morrowind (this is in Skyrim)), Sotha Sil went mad and built a sprawling clockwork city, and Alamexia (Neravar's wife?) had a temple built around her on the mainland.

The tribunal had to go back to the heart every now and then to renew their powers. The friend, Dagoth Ur, however, had been plotting. He harnessed the power of the heart and decided to create a plague across Morrowind, and rule it as its God, pushing out all the foreigners.

You play as the possible reincarnation of the Nerevar. Nobody knows if you are the Nerevar(ine) or not, but you're their only hope. You fuck around for ages, and eventually follow the prophecy to see whether or not you are the Nerevarine. You meet the spirits of the failed Nerevarines along the way.

The game is over once I kill Dagoth Ur, and the Tribunal. Fuck those guys.

  Forum Game: Rimworld- Ancestral Ruins
Posted by: Jargonion - 23-09-2018, 07:26 PM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (8)

Hi guys,

I thought I'd pitch this to Taco over steam, but I might as well do it here.

What's the coolest thing about Minecraft? If you answered with anything other than some variation of "exploring someone else's server that's been running for ages and finding lots of ruins and hidden things", then you can stop having your government subsidised retard wrangler read this to you here.

There used to be a minecraft thing where you'd make a single-player game, play for a while, then pass the save file off to someone else. Over a few cycles of this, you'd get this cool world full of awesome shit. That was something Minecraft tried to do by default, but didn't quite get right. Rimworld has a similar attempt at generating ruins, but they're just shit-boring rectangles of stone and floor.

So, what if one of us started a save file. Everything randomised. Once a disaster occurs, and the colony falls into death and ruin, we pass it off to the next guy. Using the dev mode, we can instantly spawn in a random wandering pawn (or three), and start over. This time, though, there's already a bit of infrastructure lingering from a colony long since gone. Eventually, (or more likely, after the only other participant's turn), after enough time, the save will come back to you, and you can see the result of many colonies building on top of each other.

I don't see why we couldn't eventually beat the game in this mode.

Anyone want in?
