>In other related news, increasingly outspoken Hideo Kojima has utterly slammed the Japanese games media in the latest issue of Edge magazine.
>"Japanese games media is shit," says Kojima-san in an astonishing outburst.
>"Most Japanese games reporters who come here for an interview on Metal Gear Solid haven't done their homework; they haven't done their research, and you can hardly consider them being intelligent creatures at all. You can print that."
>He continued (we swear we're not making this up): "I am certain that most game reporters in Japan are not really journalists, they are useless idiots. It's easy for us to compare the quality of reporters from Japan and other parts of the world when we visit E3 or ECTS, and this fact makes me mad."

Platinum Games Wants To Resurrect Scalebound

>In an interview with IGN Japan, Platinum’s president and vice president, Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya, respectively, reflected on Scalebound’s cancellation. Inaba states that Kamiya, the game’s creator, talks about reviving Scalebound “all the time.” This isn’t just wishful thinking; the pair wants to have serious talks with Microsoft about revisiting the project.

>“Both Kamiya and I are serious – we really would love to work on Scalebound again,” says Inaba. “I’d like to discuss it with Microsoft properly.” Kamiya added that Scalebound's development was far along when it got the ax and that it's "pointless" for Microsoft to let the IP languish.


>“I’d like to appeal to Phil Spencer directly! Let’s do it, Phil!” says Kamiya.

Microsoft Employee Steals $10 Million In Xbox Gift Cards

>Volodymyr Kvashuk was hired by Microsoft as a security engineer to work on its ecommerce infrastructure. Kvashuk however was quick to notice a bug in the system which he then started exploiting to send real codes for Xbox gift cards to him without having to pay.

>Microsoft has a test store which allows employees to make fake digital purchases in order to assess backend changes. The bug in question made the same digital purchases but for the real store and without verifying a payment method. Kvashuk was supposed to report the bug, but instead used it to generate working digital codes for Xbox gift cards which he was selling online at discounted prices.


>Microsoft fired Kvashuk in June 2018 and presented its finding for a legal pursuit. Kvashuk in the meanwhile was able to purchase his own lakefront house worth $1.675 million with the killing he made with his stolen Xbox gift cards.

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE WEEK AGAIN

SERVER WILL GO UP FRIDAY AFTERNOON EST AND SHOULD BE UP ALL WEEKEND

>What the fuck is this?

It's fucking Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart, only the best Mario Kart game ever made.

>But I wanted Red Orchestra!

Sorry, bitches, but I'm gonna force you to have fun for once. Included in the game is a plethora of fanmade maps for both racing and battling, multiple characters both Sonic and non-Sonic like Mac Tonight, Hatsune Miku, Reimu, and Doomguy, excellent music, and gameplay modifiers such as weather events for the sokuniggers.

>You've convinced me. How do I play?

Set up is super easy and it is less than a 500mb download. This game has a Windows, Linux, and an OSX build.
>Download the game here: https://hyuu.cc/
>Download the mods we'll be using in the server here: https://anonfiles.com/56ecbev3pe/Mods_rar
>Install the game anywhere you like except Program Files
>Place the DOWNLOAD folder on the root of your Kart directory
>Start the game (use opengl if you want 3d character models)
<Do NOT enable mods prior to joining the server. The game will load them for you
>Change your controls in options if you feel like it
>Go to multiplayer, scroll to "Specify IPv4 address" and enter the server IP
<Again, DO NOT ENABLE any of the mods prior to joining

>I have no idea what I'm doing or what anything does.

On the main menu, hit F1 on your keyboard to read the manual. This includes all the information you'll need to know to get started, but a lot of the other important things you will learn from playing the game like shortcuts or the types of gamemodes in battle mode.

>What's a "Hell Map?"

Maps that are deliberately made to be hard, awful, and tortuous to race on with the occasional hidden gem. They do not appear in the map list and only have a chance to show up when someone who voted for a random map gets picked. If everyone votes random a hell map is guaranteed.

>What's "Encore Mode?"

The Phantom Ruby from Sonic Mania strikes again, activating mirror mode for the track it has appeared on. As in Mania the maps are also given alternate palettes to reflect the change. Enjoy your muscle memory getting fucked.

Here's some tech the game has because lord knows you fags will need it.

Drift storage and air drifting
>Drift storage
When you drift before hitting a ramp or springs your level of drift will be maintained while you're in the air until you let go of your drift button. Use your situational awareness to determine whether your position on the track will allow you to gain more drift or not after landing.
>Air drifting
When you hit a bouncepad you are able to drift while you're in the air. This is especially handy when you hit yellow bouncepads as they tend to lower your momentum unlike red ones.

INCOMING GAMENIGHT: MEDNAFEN FUCKAROUND v2 (FE7, FE8, AW2, romhacks)

COOP AUTISM RETURNS, DEFEAT RNG HELL WITH STYLE OR DIE TRYING

>What is it?

Play Fire Emblem 6: Binding Blade, Fire Emblem 7 Hard Mode and various randomizer mods, "The Sacred Trilogy" (skills rebalance) from previous misadventures, FE7 Chaos mode (hyper cancer warning) and Advance Wars 2 over netplay are also present. Work with anons to get as far as possible into the story by using one unit per anon.
>When is it?
STARTING THIS FRIDAY 4 PM UTC https://time.is/UTC ALL WEEKEND

SETUP

>1. Download mednafen with roms: https://files.catbox.moe/5ftt3a.rar

>2. Unpack, drag rom of choice over mednafen.exe to launch it with that
>3. Press ALT+SHIFT+1 to set up the controls. There can be two buttons assigned to one input. Use the same button for first and second prompt if only one is desired. Try not to assign "t" and "Enter" to anything.
>4. Press t to open a chat menu, type in /connect ny.yuribacon.com and press enter. To rename yourself, use /nick [NAME]. To activate controls, use /dupe 1 .
>5. Play the game

FIRE EMBLEM INSTRUCTIONS: HOW TO FUCK UP IN STYLE

>0. The host controls all lords and deploys as few of them as possible.

>1. Every anon is assigned one unit of their choice when they join from the ones not claimed by others. They can only deploy and control that unit. Move around, trade, etc etc. Use chat to call dibs on units.
>2. If a new unit joins in the middle of a stage (as a reinforcement, etc, etc), that player can assign that unit to himself. If he does, he controls that unit alongside the one that he started the stage with during that stage - effectively controlling two units at once. Next stage, he can only deploy the new unit as usual.
>3. If people can't come to a consensus over who gets what item (stat booster, etc, etc), the host reserves the right to have the final say.
>4. We'll probably fucking die not even quarter of the way in. Game overs mean restarting the stage from the beginning. Do your best!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

>Rompack contains various other roms to play after we finish FE8 Randomizer. There will be a poll and people will be able to vote on the next game.

>If you've played this game night before in a ST thread or earlier, you will need to download the rompack with an emulator again. If you've completed FE6 with us, it's the same repack.
>Mednafen version in the archive (1.26.1) is for a windows release. Linux autists can use wine or get this version somewhere by themselves. Use roms from the archive.
>In an unlikely event in which host can't attend, people are invited and encouraged to play some Advance Wars 2 multiplayer. It's not likely, but it's there just in case.
>Press F1 to display help.

GAME TO BE PLAYED WILL BE FIRE EMBLEM 8 RANDOMIZER, LOAD "Fire Emblem 8 Randomizer.gba" FROM THE EXTRACTED ARCHIVE AND PROCEED WITH THE SETUP WHEN THE TIME COMES. GOOD LUCK!

Nearly All Activision Studios Are Now Working On Call Of Duty

>Call of Duty: Vanguard has been revealed alongside a confirmation that publisher Activision has put nearly all of its mainline studios on the Call of Duty franchise.

>Vanguard is being helmed by developer Sledgehammer Games while Treyarch and Raven Software will take charge of Zombies and Warzone respectively. Infinity Ward will continue to support the recent Modern Warfare game in addition to working on the next Call of Duty installment.


>Furthermore; developers High Moon Studios, Beenox, Demonware, and Toys for Bob will contribute by offering development support across Vanguard and Warzone. They will also be presumably directed by Activision to look over other unannounced Call of Duty projects when needed.


>It should also be noted that a new Activision Mobile studio has been founded to work on a new Call of Duty mobile game, which will be supported by Beenox and the Shanghai division of the publisher.

Sony Interactive Entertainment investing in external Japanese development

>“I will say that we are in some ways very much a Japanese company still,” Hulst said. “That’s our heritage. That’s still part of who we are. We love our Japanese games. We’re building out Team ASOBI under Nicolas Doucet, so we’re actually investing in that team. People forget sometimes that we have Polyphony Digital, which is a team in two locations."

>“We are investing in our external development group out of Tokyo as well, and that’s a team that has obviously worked with the likes of FromSoftware and Kojima Productions. So we are very invested in Japanese development, and Japanese development is something that we love… I think it’s such a core part of the PlayStation identity, that I can’t ever see us shy away from Japanese or even Asian development.”


Ummm actually sweaty don't you see they love Japan, that's why they shuttered their real Japanese studios and are just moneyhatting games they didn't make instead! They are even pumping money into their that one team that makes shovelware tech demos, bravo SONY!!!!

To host, a hosting player forwards a port (detailed instructions are available on the internet) and provides IP with a port in an IP:Port format, launches the game and uses the Vs Network menu to start the server. Client connects to provided IP and port and plays game. For hosts, please be sure to check the options menu to set a port and disable the "post to bot" checkmark if you don't want random people from the lobby to join instead of people in the thread. If no one's joining in the central thread, playing people from the lobby can be a good idea to practice!

Should a port be unable to be forwarded, workarounds exist - Autopunch is installed in a modpack and is used automatically in case of un-forwarded ports. Keep in mind that it can fail on some routers and workplace connections and that ping will likely be less desirable, so please forward your ports.

This fucking game is so horribly optimized. The first CPU opponents you fight against are literally the hardest. It is so unforgivably unfair and shitty. It's practically unplayable in the long term. There's no story, no characters and there's practically nothing to do except battle CPU bots.

You can't even play as Jaden in this game, or even talk to him and say hello or something. ==WHY THE FUCK IS HE EVEN IN THE BOX ART THEN KONAMI??? FFS==

>How to set up:

Just run the executable and it'll do its thing. Once you're in you can choose a username and password and then you'll be set.
See pic related for a guide on what to equip. Play some tutorials, there's one general tutorial (on the lobby page), and a tutorial for each weapon class (in the shop).

>How do I play it

S4 League is a weaboo arena third-person-shooter with gimmicks. Mechanics are fairly straightforward run, jump, and shoot.
The only unusual mechanic is wall jumping. It's essential for moving quickly, and you'll get used to it with practice.
It is important to note that you can control the angle of your wall jump with the camera. It's strange but get used to it.

There are three specific game modes that we'll be playing:
>Battle Royale: Just kill people.
>Deathmatch: Just kill people but ignore half of them.
>Touchdown: The real game. Sportsball with guns.

The rules for touchdown aren't too complicated, it's just like an ordinary sport with a ball and a goal.
Here's a handy set of instructions for what you should be doing.

Guide to Offense:
>Step 1: Get the ball.
>Step 2: Run behind enemy lines.
>Step 3: Don't get killed. (Otherwise goto 1)
>Step 4: Score in the opponent's goal.

Guide to Defense:
>Step 1. Just kill people.

But specifically kill the person who has the ball.
They will have a giant beam of light over their head.
Use that to keep an eye on how much of a threat they are.

>Start time:

I'll log on around 6:00PM EST, but feel free to make a room ahead of time.
Otherwise, I will respond in this thread with a room name and password.

Saturday and Sunday we'll be running during the day, and I'll likely tag out intermittently.
The server is run by the community, so you guys should be fine without me.
There are usually a few people who are willing to manage the room, and it's not difficult.

Avellone Sues for Libel

>Last year, a woman named Karissa made accusations against me, and so did her close friend, Kelly. The accusations were surprising. They concerned our first meeting almost 9 years ago and they were untrue. I spent the last year trying to persuade myself these acts were done out of a misguided sense of self-righteousness. I have tried to correct the record, allow voices to be heard, but in keeping silent, I was wrong. The motivation for these attacks seemed simple, Karissa and Kelly were angry about a bad break up I had had with their friend Jackie nearly 7 years ago. Jackie was a woman Karissa had encouraged me to hit on at a bar at the same convention a year after Karissa and I first met. It is an unusual thing for someone to do to a friend with someone they believe to be a ‘sexual predator.’ Jackie and I saw each other for a year. We were not dating, we were not boyfriend/girlfriend. We stopped seeing each other 7 years ago. I had to break it off, in no small part to Karissa continually, angrily inserting herself into our relationship — which Jackie encouraged.

>I do not know why Karissa waited so long with these accusations. She seemed to be triggered by the posting of an IGN video interview involving me. To be clear, I did not want to do this video interview. I was told by the PR Evolve liaison at the time IGN ‘insisted.’ IGN’s handling of the interview (cutting out my female lead at the time) seemed to confirm it. This was their decision, I had no involvement in it, and their handling of it disgusted me. But it was not the content Karissa seemed angered by, it was my presence. Whether it was that I still had a job in the industry or believed I did not deserve the ‘attention,’ I do not know. I certainly didn’t want the attention. Shortly after, Karissa made her accusations. Her close friend Kelly then supported her with brand new claims purposely worded to be hard (but not impossible) to disprove.


>As I said at the time, I believed the breakup with their friend Jackie motivated their attacks. Karissa and Kelly even said as much. For those of you that asked questions about these accusations — thank you. For those who offered support — thank you. For those of you willing to listen before rushing to judgment — thank you. A long list of digital evidence and witness testimony has been compiled over the past year. With that in hand, I filed a formal response last week, not to silence Karissa and Kelly, but to encourage them to speak more. Other women came forward, but addressing them is easier done by first challenging Karissa’s statements. This is because Karissa’s claims were, unfortunately, echoed by others as truth, which allowed these falsehoods to spread and seem to be true via repetition. Whether this was done out of malice or ignorance doesn’t matter. They are untrue.


>When Karissa’s claims are addressed in court, they will put these other claims in a much different light. Other parts of these stories that weren’t parroted by others are easy to prove false with a little research… if even a little research had been done. None of the press did any such research I’m aware of, even for the easiest confirmations. For example, a woman, Christy Dena, claimed we shared a night together in 2013 when I wasn’t even on the same continent. For now, my focus is Karissa and her statements. Making a case on Twitter is pointless. Karissa has told me she owes me “nothing” concerning her accusations. Like her accusations, this is also not true.


>When you accuse someone of a crime, when you present falsehoods as facts to harm another, you must provide proof of your claims and address the evidence that shows your words to be false. It’s called accountability. As I said before, I spent the last year trying to persuade myself these acts were done out of misguided self-righteousness. I tried to correct the record, allow voices to be heard, but I was wrong; these attacks were malicious, and they must be challenged.

Silent Hills

Basically a while back there was a PS5 trailer for a game called Abandoned. People were calling bullshit on it because there was very little information on this game or the studio behind it ("Blue Box"). There is a ton of speculation that this is some sort of ARG drumming up hype for the next Silent Hill. At first glance it seems very schizo and desperate but when you add EVERYTHING up together it seems too much of a coincidence. At the same time, some of this stuff stretches back to 2015, which is insane just for some marketing. I will just dump everything so you can judge for yourselves.

Dying Lulz 2

Some guy did a report investigating what's happening with Dying Light 2, found out Techland management are mad lads:

>Over the course of my investigation, multiple people independently shared a story of an artist who turned in some work that management disliked. The feedback they received was "pedalski", which translates to "too f**got-like". In another meeting, the team was discussing the "modern dark ages'' - one of the core design pillars of Dying Light 2 - and one lead blurted out, “At least they knew how to deal with women back then!”. It’s hard to feel like complaints about sexism are being taken seriously when the main feature of the CEO’s office is a photo of a naked woman next to a cheetah. (pic related)


>Marchewka (CEO of Techland) is an ideas man, and he had some ideas to promote Dying Light 2. One plan was to drive an unmarked van down to the Mexican border and offload a pile of body bags, sparking a macabre ARG that would eventually reveal itself to be part of the game’s marketing campaign. Another idea that was floated, just around the start of the pandemic, was to send out medical test kits. People would test themselves and get results back telling them whether or not they were susceptible to the game’s fictional pathogen. Because the kits were for real diseases, though, you might also find out you have something seriously wrong with you.


On the not so funny side Dying Light 2 is a disaster and will probably end up like Cyberjunk:

>Another person who worked on Dying Light 2 for multiple years tells me they “have no idea what the final game will be, or what the story is. It’s changed so much. People kept quitting, getting fired.” The reveal of Dying Light 2 promised a tangled web of choice and consequence, where one playthrough will only allow players to see 50 percent of the game’s content, but much of that has been stripped back.


>“What is going on in Techland is just total chaos, not iteration. There are plenty of examples where there is someone responsible for a given feature - like a game director decides on something - but Pyza and Marchewka just overwrite this because of some bullshit reason, like they've seen something working differently in other games so we can do it like that.”


>“It could also be something like the shape of spikes on the enemy, how [a certain] AI kicks the player, or some visual aspect where Marchewka will give his famous feedback like, ‘that just looks bad’ or ‘this character looks gay’, which is very useful feedback for specialists who work on such things for years, right? It is 100 percent true that there is nothing written in stone in Techland. Dying Light 2’s story was rewritten like six times or so. It could have worked in Dying Light because the project was smaller, but it makes production for Dying Light 2 - a much bigger project - just impossible to move forward.”

R: 23 / I: 2
ive been having cravings for playing a game with a similar aesthetic to these. not sure what you'd call it, a gloomy and subterranean atmosphere? urban decay? all i know is all of these gave me the same feeling of being caught in a damp grimy hole in the earth or a semi-abandoned underground civilization (i guess that's pretty much what hollow knight and rainworld are) and there's something really appealing about that, but i don't know where to look for other games that are like this, any suggestions?
