I honestly had no idea!

RIP Kitty0706.

Addendum: didn't know whether to put this here on in /pop/. I figured since he was more involved in developing videos off games it'd fit better here.

>he was 20 when he passed away

Fuck, just…fuck, man. Too young to go. And just as it seemed his cancer was going into remission, it came back. And that was it.

I will be downloading some of his best videos for archive purposes, in case Youtube decides to pull the plug on his account in the future.

Rest in peace, you crazy diamond.

I've decided I'm going to do something probably lame, and stream myself playing the Game of Thrones game by Telltale. I have not one clue what to expect other than favorite characters dying and utter bleakness.

It'll be fun!

I'll be starting in about 12 minutes.

ALSO: maybe we could make this a general game streaming announcement thread?

ID: a9d4f  No.354

That was fun, even with the lag. Thinking about streaming something else from my PS4. I'm gonna keep bullshit in the stream title just as a theme.

Maybe if I can get some folks to join me for Mercenary Kings at some point, I could turn it into a Bullshit Kings stream.

Grim Fandango is next on the to-do list. It'll be finished downloading in two hours, and I'll do another stream soon after. Will probably run for 2 hours like last time.

Regrettably, my computer just does not have the muscle to stream and game at the same time, so pretty much every stream I'll end up doing will be from my PS4.

ID: a9d4f  No.376

Stream's up. Same link as above.

I'll be streaming Apotheon on the hour. This is quite possibly my favorite metroidvania game from an art standpoint. It's just fucking pretty.

ID: a9d4f  No.493

Continuing my stream of Apotheon now if anyone is interested.

So if you haven't heard the news recently, Nintendo started up an affiliate program on YouTube to share ad revenue:

https://r.ncp.nintendo.net/

Now I'm sure lots of folks were skeptical because of how out of touch Nintendo is when it comes to… well, a LOT of stuff. And sadly this is no different.

In short: say you want to monetize a video and you already have an affiliate or two you're already sharing revenue with. When you sign on with Nintendo, Ninty takes their cut AFTER your other affiliates do. So you're getting less cash then you would get for a non-Nintendo game.

As if that weren't bad enough, Nintendo just put this up only yesterday:

https://r.ncp.nintendo.net/news/#list_3

A list of approved games that are allowed on your affiliated channel. If it's not on there, it can't be on the channel and must be removed. On top of THAT, a bunch of games published by Nintendo are NOT on that list, such as Fire Emblem, Pokemon, or Smash Bros.

That man wouldn't surprise me.

Wow, so… For your channel to be accepted into the program, you have to be entirely Nintendo-centric.

I'm calling it now, they're going to find out the hard way what a stupid idea this is before too long and can it.

It would not surprise me to see major Letsplayers drop Nintendo games—and games on Nintendo systems—like a rock from here on out. Nintendo needs them more than they need Nintendo.

ID: 75bfe  No.490

From what I've seen, most of them are continuing to play them, actually.

ID: 65fda  No.491

But they're certainly not a part of the program.

Posting this cause more people need to know about this fucking game. Say hello to Starr Mazer, the first ever hybrid point&click adventure/shoot'em up.

Assuming it gets funded in the remaining 13 days, that is.

While we're at it, this can be a general crowdfunded game thread, I guess? Anything you guys have seen that you really wanted, but never got funded?

So apparently Joystiq is going down the tubes on the 3rd of February. I frequented massively most, and is a shame it's going. Going to be that harder to find news on MMOs, especially stuff overseas like Tree of Savior (they don't exactly translate things on their own).

WoW Insider down as well as it was a part of all that. Pretty shitty, but AOL's been a sinking ship for a long time now.

ID: 04b8e  No.407

From the way it was phrased by Massively's EIC, AOL is backing out of 'enthusiast' blogs in general. That means the likely end of not only WoW Insider, Joystiq, and Massively, but Engadget and TechCrunch as well. (HuffPo Tech and The Unofficial Apple Weblog are going as well, though I don't know if they're worth mourning.)

ID: 04b8e  No.409

http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/30/aohell/

Techcrunch says they're fine, and TUAW and Joystiq will continue as 'channels' within Techcrunch.

Note this doesn't change the dismissal of ~150 staff–none of either Joystiq nor TUAW's standing crew get to continue on. Also fair warn, that article is loaded with Execu-Speak (tm).

It appears massively is going to start itself up as www.massivelyop.com eventually. Don't think WoW Insider is getting it's separate site though. Perhaps it's own section on OP instead?

As for joystiq, well there is that site listed up there, but from what I'm reading it's just 3 people.

The bear one was super easy for me. First was annoying as fuck, and the rock paper scissors ones I oouldn't ever get. Everyone claimed it was easy, but then I guess my mind didn't develop further enough to beat chance. *shrug*

I remember when shockwave.com was a thing, I used to play this game called Blix all the time.

I remember when entire schools would get viruses out the wazoo because students kept playing flash games on their poorly protected school computers. Some dished out childblocks, and even ended up blocking youtube.

These events always give me hype and joy.

Starting off with a bang, with the surprise reveal of the next Fire Emblem for 3DS. We got gameplay footage, it's developed by the same team as Awakening, new story writer.

English trailer for Puzzle & Dragons Mario Edition, then a new Pokemon puzzle game, Pokemon Shuffle.

Wii games are coming to Wii U's eShop. Unlike disc-based BC, these digital versions can use the gamepad's controls to emulate Wii's classic controllers (disc Wii games can stream to the gamepad, but you have to use a separate controller) First games are Mario Galaxy 2, Punch-Out!, and Metroid Prime Trilogy. Each of these will be half-off their normal price for the first week they're available. More Wii games to follow.

New Super Mario line of Amiibos. It's just new Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Bowser Amiibos, plus Toad this time. Mario Party 10 will use them, plus existing Rosalina, Donkey Kong, and Wario Amiibos. MP10 bundle with the new Mario is available.

YES! New Splatoon footage coming in right now

I hope they don't go down that route. Then again, Nintendo did let me down in the past sooo….

It's coming and there's nothing you can do about it. It almost makes too much sense from a "what would people be willing to throw their money at" perspective.

The thing is, Pokemon is a game where main mechanic is trading Pokemon and interacting with other people all around the globe. Implementing the Amiibo/Skylanders bullshit to unlock Pokemon simply wouldn't work.

And in these times when financial crisis has hit many countries, many people are barely able to afford for a handheld+game, let alone shitton of other accessories.

ID: 0ec34  No.312

The only Pokemon game I foresee having amiibos compatible with it is Pokken Fighters.

Pokken Tournament, rather. And speaking of which:

Suicune, Pikachu, and Gardevoir confirmed as playable.

Here's the game description. Surprisingly, there are quite a number of boob/strip/gentlemen clubs/bars either mentioned or presented in media(<fictional shows/cartoons/VGs).

In this game, post the name of a fictional boob/strip/gentlemens club/bar and where it came from.

Bonus points for a snapshot of the actual establishment(if available.) More or just as much points for a performer/performance from inside said establishment and a little extra for the stage name the performer used and the actual name also gets extra points.

One post per establishment, no posting multiple establishment names in the same post.

So, here are the point values.(You must at least have the establishment name in order to get any of the + points).

10 for just the name of the establishment
+5 for where the establishment or name came from
+20 for a pic of the establishment
+20 for a performers stage name
+25 for the performers name

ITT, web-based games that are good for a quick playthrough and whatnot.

Bought this on Steam sale. It's pretty much as good as everyone says.

Really hope there's a sequel. In the meantime, there's at least some replay value. Doing an "as nice as possible" playthrough right now… after that I'm gonna try one where I always respond with silence or pick the most violent options available.

ID: 33081  No.141

I hope they do too, though with Tales of Borderlands and Minecraft: Story Mode brewing and a Game of Thrones being a multi-year guaranteed sequel deal, I have no idea when they'd have time.

Related note: went and played TT's Back To The Future recently; my dog it's amazing how far they've come.

I like that Wolf Among Us focuses more on the storytelling aspects than the QTEs that seem to jump out at you every couple of minutes in Walking Dead, and that the puzzles and investigation felt a lot more natural.

Walking Dead, I'd just sort of be getting into really following the narrative and focusing on the story then WHAM, jab Q and stab direction keys because a sudden Walker!

Basically I enjoy the interactive story a lot more than the gameplay elements, a lot of the time.

ID: 33081  No.145

Tales from Borderlands seems better in that regard too. Lots of dialogue and character establishment framing bits of violence or comedic hijinks.
