Are they allowing nukige on Steam now? Maybe we will finally see a MinDeaD Blood release on the west?
Oh wow, it's real.
I heard they were removing these scenes from the NA release on Steam?
3/10 made me loo...
Wait. This is real. This is a thing, a thing that is happening.
Is it so hard to create a new category?
This looks good,written by Isuna Hasekura
It was alright. Half VN Half Travel guide.
If it's cheap you might as well play it.
How long until KyoAni files for copyright violations?
When did that anon do a full play through with us? Was that back in 2012?
It's pretty great, but that ending though.
Haha. Americans really don't get this stuff do they?
I sure can't wait for bazillion of threads to be made by Slowking when Higurashi pop up in Stream later.
Why are all his works based around economics?
Why is there no Gaben VN?
Because he's a fat fuck.
Is it going to be free?
Because he's an economics major and spent years studying the stuff. In fact, most of his money is still off his stocks. He talks about it int he S&W afterwords.
I lost my image of imouto trying to speak English. Goddammit. That was heart attacking inducing.
and another thing ruined, great!
That's pretty cool. He knows his shit
I seriously hope not, that's half of the reason to buy shitty jap novels.
There are two boards where you can discuss VNs and /a/ is neither of them.
>heart attacking inducing
>Implying you wouldn't snuggle into his lovehandles
Yeah I fucked up.
But why anon, why was it heart attacking inducing
I can't find it either, so I capped this from Youtube.
Because it's moe, Mr Ludwig.
NO you stay away from Yuu
My god, I am seeing the classical light.
What's the price? If it's <10 bucks I'll easily buy it. Wonder if it'll go on Steam Sale
So what is this about ?
You go in a sexual trip to japan and you fuck bitches ?
Well, it's ~10 on mangagamer's website, and I can't see it being any more on Steam. Probably will get a 10-25% discount the first week/week before.
Never gonna happen. And that's a good thing!
>muh secret club
>tfw MC Alpha's it up when those fucking Japs start hitting on your Jap waifu
Felt so good
Gaben graduated from ponyfucking and moved onto anime.
So will Valve in charge spice and wolf season 3 now?
>muh mass appeal
No porn then ?
Alright, so what's so good about it ?
So how's this VN?
My VN backlog is way too big so I'll never know. I'm certainly not paying 11 euro dollars for it.
I think that was me, I remember capping screens from the game as I progressed through it.
It was pretty fun though, older sister was best sister.
>is now playing
>[Insert cute VN here]
I can't fucking do it.
This one's a weeb product, the other one is actually moon-made.
>No Sexual Content
Thanks but no thanks.
My friends knows I'm a weeb, but this is too much.
are VNs video games
Older sister had that stupid end where the MC revoked his American citizenship to become a Japanese citizen and the girl waited for him for over a year right?
You can have multiple steam accounts you know.
Create another account and put your cute VN on it with no friends on this account.
If you have anyone as your friend on steam, you should fuck off. Exception is a tripfiend from /a/.
Do sentences start with a capital letter and end with punctuation?
>Anon is now playing Monster Girl Quest: lose and be raped
>Anon is now playing Maiden Rape Assault: Violent Semen Inferno
Feels good. Stop adding people you know in real life.
Or fucking put your state as offline,
>If you have anyone as your friend on steam, you should fuck off.
Don't you have a peaceful Space Dandy thread to post dubs in? Try harder to fit in, faggot.
>If you have anyone as your friend on steam, you should fuck off. Exception is a tripfiend from /a/.
What kind of fucked logic is that?
But they add me
>watching Space Dandy
Which "tripfriend" do you have added
>VNs on Steam
Does this mean that pic related might be a possibility?
>Anon unlocked [Achievement that requires you to send a RL photo of you pandering your waifu to the game author]
AND PROUD OF IT
>If you have anyone as your friend on steam, you should fuck off. Exception is a tripfiend from /a/.
not when im hungover they don't
>Delicious Japanese Dishes!!
>not adding your pirated VNs to your Steam library
>not wanting them to read "Anon is playing Cripple Porn: Weeb Edition" all of the time
Plebs, all of you.

I'm trying to figure out which is less likely. That'll be the day.
>Anon now owns
>[Insert cute VN here]
>[Big picture of it + description]
There is no escape.
>not doing it on purpose to fuck with your friends
Imagine just seeing one of your friends playing
"My Loli Cousin Is Too Lewd For School"
>>not adding your pirated VNs to your Steam library
>not adding imported VNs to your Steam library
Are you even trying?
I put it on my wishlist
but it helps me pretending my life isnt shit
Getting the shit out of this
>implying I don't rename all my games that I can on Steam into things like "Rock Band: K-On!" anyway
wait this was real
I thought it was shoops
People look at those?
CM Punk please go.
You're gonna carry that weight.
Who the fuck uses the Activity tab?
>Starting slow with a game made to introduce your to VN's and Japan culture
It's happening. Japan is going to convert American culture entirely over to anime.
>Rock Band: K-On! will never actually happen
Why must you make me sad?
what % of americans do you think actually use steam.
There will be mods to add ero content back in, I guarantee it. Then the steam forum for the game will be consumed by shit flinging.
Fucking this. The only all-ages VN I've ever read was Clannad. And only the good routes, meaning Kyou and Tomoyo.
> Take an actual honest-to-god IRL photograph of the cake you're sharing with *Hyun-ae, and e-mail it to the developer!
AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY DO IT
So suck it up.
I remember that LP on /a/ a couple years back. That shit was hilarious marketing.
> That feel when western VNs are mainstream now.
Just look to TLoU, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider (the new one), The Walking Dead* / Wolf Among Us, etc.
It's only a matter of time.
Oh yeah, Higurashi got greenlit too.
I can't wait to see all the threads on Steam
>WHY IS THE ART SO BAD?
>WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?
>WHY DO THEY HAVE SAUSAGES FOR FINGERS?
It was all ages to begin with.
I live in Canada, so most of the good ones I can't get.
I'd torrent it, it's not like I'm reading the light novels already or anything
What about these
Pretty sure it has PS2 artwork as well, so it may cut down on a little of that.
Higurashi and Umineko didn't need any ero-content because it just wouldn't fit the theme of the game. Also the story in both of those was good enough to get by without it.
Imports work everywhere. That's why you… import it.
I think you are more than slightly confused about what VN and what RPG mean.
Yeah, I don't think that's on the same level as something like this.
Both are literal impossibilities.
4LS is way too Jewish/autistic to let KS pop up anywhere else or to let anyone add or subtract content from it. They've got it clasped by the balls.
That's Katawa Shoujo?
I thought it was Phi and Akane from the Virtue's Last Reward.
thats "for all ages" by japanese standards
Are you a Nun?
>7.4% of players have done this
And they are all from /a/ I'm sure. I'm thinking about buying this and doing it.
That Japan that looks like a penis
I don't know what kind of friends you keep anon, but of the 37 people on my Steam Friends, none of them have ever seemed to give a single fuck about me playing any kind of VN.
Just do it man, who cares?
Wasn't it just a info dump? Because that's what I remembered.
I'm not gonna support that crap if it isn't Ryukishi's hand-drawn masterpiece.
Pretty sure I read that mangagamer can't use the PS2 sprites on their release.
People can, of course, change the files themselves, but most people are too stupid to do so.
I meant in reference to this
But yeah, I could have said that better.
Vn Visual novel
Rpg Role playing game
Not a single one of the games you mentioned is a Vn
I did it.
But I have no Steam friends.
>[spiler]I'm thinking about buying this and doing it.[/spoiler:lit]
A bought cake is accepted too, just so you know.
That's from the sequel, right? Because I read her route and I don't remember this scene.
Don't, Hate Plus is pretty bad and the devs are gonehometier
They're joke "DLC" characters from April Fools the year of KS's release. They claimed that they would put KS on Steam and that you could purchase two bonus routes with "Katawa Points"
Well, I did put 'Meikyuu' in the file name for a reason.
It's probably for the best they keep away from eroge, less we get another rapelay incident.
> RPG vs. VN.
By your logic Duel Savior, Kamidori, Himegari, Sengoku Rance, etc. are all not VNs.
Hint: Any digital application that emphasises story/characters. over gameplay (but might still have it), is a VN. After all, games are named as such because their distinguishing feature is GAMEPLAY and emphasises it.
The games I listed have less emphasized gameplay than fucking Rance.
Learn to ALT+S
>VNs start selling on steam
>They become mainstream
>the developers release official translations
>Localization, censorship, and removed content everywhere
>Fan-translations die out
The best part is that thousands of people would pay for that. Including me.
I meant CTRL+S.
This image never fails to bug me.
>paying for the definition of a mediocre, 6/10 VN
Yeah, all ages VNs might become mainstream but eroge and nukige never will. We'll still need fan translations.
apparently the weeb's I'm observing haven't caught on to it yet.
My friends all know I love jrpgs and otaku shit. I don't give a fuck. I love stupid pandering anime shit. That's why Tales is on of my favorite series.
>Don't, Hate Plus is pretty bad
It's actually pretty good. Just short, so the price is somewhat high for what you get out of it.
Not counting the bragging rights from that one achievement. Oh, and cake costs.
I just want my Kenji route.
Fifty Shades of Grey proves that we're one step toward depravity away from western eroge/nukige. It'll just be targeted toward women, not men.
You already have it though. Don't you like whiskey and pretzels?
Those aren't VNs, they are eroge.
mute true end when
>mute true end when
Gone Home is a decent Visual Novel, so I don't see the problem.
No, it's not the same thing. That's like saying a shooter is the same as an RPG.
Not all VNs are eroge.
No, they aren't.
Are you stupid?
And here I thought Carpe Fulgur was going to be the savior of the West when Recettear was released.
You are a retard. Eroge is sub-genre of VN.
You are a retard too. They're visual novels with RPG elements. The games you listed are RPG. You can tell when a game is VN when the dialogue is completely separated from the gameplay.
One has porn, one doesn't.
VNs might not be eroge, but eroge is certainly a type of VN
>Any digital application that emphasises story/characters. over gameplay (but might still have it), is a VN.
Hint: You're fucking retarded.
>Any digital application that emphasises story/characters. over gameplay (but might still have it), is a VN.
That's generalizing too much. The Walking Dead is not a visual novel. It may be closer to a VN than a traditional game.
This guy is so beta he even hides his power level and uses a fake personality over the fucking internet
As long as they have porn, they are classified as eroge, so this covers 99% of VNs.
Sengoku Rance on Steam would be great. Just for the tears.
Except not all eroge are VNs and not all VNs are eroge. You're retarded.
>Expecting anything from goons
go fuck yourself and play ever17.
But not all erotic games are visual novels.
Not all of it. Eroge just refers to pornographic games. Wouldn't stuff like Artificial Girl 3 be eroge?
Make me, bitch. I won't read C;H or S;G either.
Not really, no.
Sengoku Rance isn't a visual novel, but is an eroge.
F/SN is a visual novel, and IS an eroge.
>reading like 15% of a visual novel
what is wrong with you
To be honest, Clannad had buttloads of filler.
What is wrong with you?
you're missing one of the best VN ever dude, really.
I do this with eroge too. Why should I play the route of a heroine I dislike? I have anime for that.
And don't even get me started on enforced playing order. I don't even know how I finished Hoshimemo.
Good because those are actually shit.
because its necessary for the plot ? I usually keep the route the heroine I like last.
This, I can't be bothered to 100% each VN I play if I've already been through the best girl's route. It feels like cheating on her.
>mfw I have Sengoku Rance, Kamidori, Big Bang Age, and Katawa Shoujo on my steam
This is me giving a fuck.
Eroge = Erotic Game
VN = Visual Novel, a sub-class of games
A game can be an Eroge and not a VN
A game can be a VN and not an Eroge
A game can be both.
Why is this so hard to grasp?
You don't get it, do you?
Venn diagrams are hard, apparently
Translators do that too and we can all see how that went with Dracu-Riot.
Oh man I remember this.
It was pretty cute. Would play as long as it's not censored.
I could already see the Fox News report about it.
Because people are retarded.
No, I don't. What's the problem with importing stuff?
Images are deleted already. Fucking Woxxy.
I heard it has a sad end, is that true?
but where does RPG fit into it
I do this all the time. What's the problem with that?
Canada prohibits loli.
Not Steam related but has JAST announced a release date for Steins;Gate yet? I preordered it and everything but I haven't heard anything about it since
There are naive people out there who use the terms interchangeably. It's more to do with the stigmatization of Japanese media than any lack of comprehension for basic logic (though I wouldn't discount that for certain people).
Yeah, you can say that. The author loves messing with weeaboo emotions.
Which is why I like the games, but apparently some people are offended by it. Whyever.
Oh. Well. Sucks to be you, then.
Rapelay is an eroge, but not a VN.
Ever17 is a VN, but not an eroge. Not all VNs are eroge. Not all eroge are VNs. It's not hard to understand.
Don't believe the Goon's lies.
same way the other ones do
I keep seeing the j-list banner ad for it.
When did I say otherwise?
>Dloaded the shit outta that game
>"-- hngh!" -makoto,2014
Do they have achievements?
5pb is against a Steam release right now. They want to see good physical sales first.
SA must be the laughing stock of the internet at this point. I don't even know what it's trying to be anymore.
Nevermind me quoting you. I just wanted to give plain examples for people to be able to differentiate them.
Anyway, aside of this boring talk about something we all know the answer, what have you guys been reading recently? Finished anything these past days? Waiting for a translation to be released?
17 light years from now.
Gone Home is not a visual novel. it's a first person looker. it may be visual, but there's no "novel" aspect to it.
>Maiden Rape Assault: Violent Semen Inferno
I'm probably a newfag for not already knowing about this, but holy hell this shit is really real. I can't believe it. Someone got payed to do this. Someone greenlit it's production.
Japan is an amazing place, indeed.
>They want to see good physical sales first.
Uh… what? The hell is this, 2008?
>RUB A DUB THANKS FOR THE GRUB - Get your breakfast made by a girl
>HAREM MASTER - Complete every route and find the harem end
>FUKOU DA - Get a bad end
I heard it got pushed back to March 31
>not sending the group chart of your friends screen shots of your playthrough and over react to everything that happens in the VN
>being in charge for anything 3
There's much, much worse stuff out there. For example, I've seen a VN about a pregnant woman who gets fucked and you can see the baby being devastated.
if you weren't aware Japan is stuck in the technological past. things like digital distribution mystify and horrify the nips
Summer Sale better have VN Bundle
Gaze upon the horrors of which Japan has wrought.
Umineko might get a Steam release as well but Jap only. Unless Mangagamer finds a way to get a release done with the fantranslators.
>Nipponese company in charge of anything.
Oh, never mind then, I thought it was the US distributor.
Fuck dammit, I could spend hours ranting about the incompetence of Japanese companies. Fucking stupid fucks, no wonder their economy has been shitting itself for decades.
I'd buy it if it had the ps3 art.
Higurashi is getting delayed most likely for that reason (PS2 sprites in that case)
it's bizarre isn't it. It's almost like they're allergic to making money
>It's almost like they're allergic to making money
More like "WE SHALL RATHER DIE THAN ACCEPTING FILTHY GAIJIN MONEY"
Ryukishi himself doesn't want that done with his works. Higurashi was let by because it had no fan translation. He's satisfied with people buy the original Japanese version and patching with the fan translations.
if i'm from [s4s] do i count
Maybe they just could advertise the fantranslation page on the Steam page in that case.
I can admire him for that. People like him and ZUN you can tell aren't in it for the money.
Well i'm going to buy it anyway to see what happens.
Damn, I just checked the forums for that game and it has 2 threads dedicated to an achievement, one has almost 1000 comments and the other 600, thats insane
I still want to know how moot managed to meet up and drink with ZUN 2 times already.
You know what's happening, OP. This is /a/'s response to /v/'s tyranny.
I've read some pretty crazy shit in doujinshi but this just doesn't sit right with me. My jimmies are rustled.
After all the hell they went to to make it, and then all of the bullshit that happened afterwards on /a/, /v/, and to this day /vg/, I think they have the right to keep it clasped by the balls so that maybe we can forget about it someday.
ZUN is thinking about Steam though.
The appeal of steam is that you can acquire and manage your games in one place. It doesn't make much sense to host a product on steam that has to be physically bought.
>Damn, I just checked the forums for that game and it has 2 threads dedicated to an achievement, one has almost 1000 comments and the other 600, thats insane
The game is a beautiful rage bait.
And damn do I want to see that ending, poor Mute. ;_;
it's remarkable that jap companies don't realize there's a large untapped market in the west who are desperate for any weeb product they can get their hands on. there's so much money to be made and they're leaving it all on the table. in any other country, the companies leadership would be ousted immediately for squandering such opportunity.
-Find out where ZUN is somehow.
-A wild ZUN will appear shortly after that
The thing is that translating VNs is 10 times more work than any other kind of otaku entertainment.
ZUN is another one who I can't believe hasn't made any attempt to distribute in the west. there's already a large fanbase just begging to throw money at him
I remember hearing about that. It's part of a trend of Japanese being more open to digital distribution in general. Like how Metal Slug 3 is on Steam now and Ikaruga is coming.
Email moot and ask him.
weren't those games released ages ago on Xbox XBLA?
When will Steam have an 18+ section?
ZUN is known for being extremely xenophobic.
>10 times more work than any other kind of otaku entertainment
xenophobic = afraid of money?
so...why is gabe trying to infect casuals with nippon game technology? It will lead to lowered birth rates in America and Europe.
It's fucked up because even though she was kind of a shithead sometimes there's no happy ending for her (harem doesn't count) but I guess that's realistic.
It's still sad. I check the achievment stats every once in a while to see if someone figured it out. The developer said she was moving away from VNs too, so I have to wonder if it'll ever happen.
As someone who has read a few Fatalpulse doujin and other crazy shit like Magical Girl Next Door, I shouldn't be bothered by this. But I was. Omedetou.
Fucking Christ, Eirin. What the fuck.
He seemed friendly enough when confronted with hordes of filthy crossplayers.
A lot longer, also hacking.
B-but muh sterd race
I'm pretty sure his racial/nationalist scruples would be okay with it if he just framed it from the perspective of 'these stupid gaijin are paying boatloads for my games'.
This, I want it. Plz gaben.
>yfw 15 years old
Anyone played this?
This game is way too hard for a children's game
Never. Americans cannot into nudity.
You call that lewd?
That's why he went to Atlanta, right?
Text translation usually isn't the issue, it's also getting the shit to display properly. It's also not as directly rewarding as manga or anime so people give up on it.
is that actually good? it's in an indie bundle.
In Fatalpulse doujins, the girls usually seem happy, but you can tell Reisen is pretty fucked up even by the end of this.
i hear it is fun
there's games with nudity on steam. The Void, Fahrenheit (eurofag version), et al.
>it's remarkable that jap companies don't realize there's a large untapped market in the west who are desperate for any weeb product they can get their hands on.
Note that it's not just the case with entertainment, the same goes for the entire Japanese economy. If they do export stuff, they do it half-assed and don't give a shit about their target market, and then pull back when they have the tiniest setback.
Heard the same shit from Daihatsu (car) resellers, the Nips only export the crappy shit, and refuse to make any modifications to get a real foothold on the market. E.g. limited motors to get into cheaper tax classes – Daihatsu Germany tried to sell cars that cost as much as a Lada, yet were in the same tax class as a Mercedes, and it took them FIVE YEARS to react to the complaints.
Fuck nip management with another nuke and never look back.
>It's fucked up because even though she was kind of a shithead sometimes there's no happy ending for her (harem doesn't count) but I guess that's realistic.
Still a shame. She was a shithead, but still pretty okay for that.
Okay. SEX is a better word.
>dissolving the baby while they fuck her
I guess I still have a long way to go if this bothers me.
pretty lewd for steam
it's a slippery sloap
True, but Go Go Nippon is a moon-made product for weebs, so it's pretty much the same.
I tried telling myself it's just a drawing but it just didn't work this time. Sorry for being so weak.
K. Here's the bundle if you want it.
It's great that that will never happen. It sure is great knowing moon.
I'm more annoyed by people calling VN's dating sims.
Overdrive artwork feels like it's had a huge improvement recently. I miss the Kira Kira monkey ears.
Who the fuck uses big picture anyway?
>The developer said she was moving away from VNs too, so I have to wonder if it'll ever happen.
Seriously? thats too bad, what is she going to do instead?
Are there dicks on screen and vagos?
Steam OS users
not sure about the witcher, but you got full frontal male nudity in GTA IV EFLC
he means there is a large picture, not big picture mode.
yes, in the opening scene too
right but those are ART
>american walking in on someone taking a shower
and here i thought only japan did this
You mean faggots? I can't really see the point of using SteamOS.
is Japan finally doing shit on PC?
that'd be so cool.
He was specifically talking about sex.
Are these steam VN's worth it? I loved Long Live the Queen but it was short as fuck.
maybe on sale
japs have sales right?
Call me when it's Wanko to Kurasou. It would be a pleasant surprise.
Most of them are pretty shitty EVNs. I was liking Dysfunctional Systems, but you would do well to get more than an hour out of it.
Actually, I think Go! Go! Nippon and Higurashi are the only two Japanese VNs to be available or greenlit on Steam.
It's more overlocalized than Commie + western Phoenix Wright.
Long Live the Queen and all the other VNs on Steam are all western developed, rite? in other words they're cheap imitators that can't capture what makes jap vns special. It's the same with any other media or game style that's uniquely japanese. I've never played a good western "JRPG", or seen a good western "manga"
year your hamburgers, anon.
Just rename it you stupid fuck
"Hey anon, you sure seem to like playing Call of Duty. Why don't we play together some time?"
long live the queen isn't quite a vn, its more of a little girl torture simulator.
>Hiding your power level
What a humongous faggot.
>excited for ESO
>Having people on your friends list who play CoD
With that kind of attitude, what makes you better than a filthy, uninhibited weeaboo?
you can't rename things that are native steam, only stuff you add.
Is steam really filled with this much normalfags? Meanwhile people play waifu factory on 3ds or senran kagura on vita and not give a shit who will potentially see that.
Why would you rename it to a fucking multiplayer you spanner?
Must be hard living your life out of fear that your friends, of all people, might discover what you're doing on your free time.
This thread has made me aware of how much /a/nons are scared of people judging them for liking shitty anime games. Faggots, the lot of you.
I don't have vita or 3ds, do they show off what games you own/bought or are currently playing? I only do PC and PS3. PS3 kind of has that. It'll show games you played and trophies earned for thus, like I played Neptunia 2 and got a few trophies.
Such a lame panty quest, ugh.
>Japanese Shrine in America given as a gift
>Swedish tourist character who loves America
otherwise it's alright
You dodged my question. You could have easily said that it was your taste that made you superior, and that your behavior was still miles better than your average faggot's. Zero (0) points.
>Long Live the Queen
I played that yesterday
It doesn't do a very good job about making you care about the characters as the men get about 2 minutes of screen time and you're later wondering "who the fuck was that?" when it asks you if you want you to marry one of them
Also most of the skills are just completely useless, I don't think I've ever seen a check for falconry once other than the option to choose that for the festival thing but there are like 7 other options there man. Most of the skills just give you background information and have nothing to do with the plot either and sometimes a death can just come out of nowhere. Quite frustrating game.
Reminds me of this.
Someone detail this to me before I start.
I masturbated to that just the other day!
I seriously hope more of this stuff is made.
When it's 13 year old userbase grows up.
I feel like the grandpa of Steam whenever I try to play an online game and see all the latest avatars and names.
I feel like a part of me has just died.
Doubt it, games like the Witcher have a shit ton of nudity and sexual themes.
Valve just doesn't want blatant pornogrophy on the platform.
VN became popular thanks to date sims so it's only natural, also most VNs feel like a date sim with different mechanics and a plot in the way.
Post your years of service badges, /a/.
I'll post you one thing, though I'm sure my powerlevel is still low compared to some people out there.
>There are people here who actually use Steam to play games
I only have 3 years, I always just pirated games
How else am I supposed to play Civ V?
downloaded steam the day The Orange Box came out.
You don't, and you lock yourself in a room with nothing but your computer until you get some taste.
I only have 2 years of service due to my longtime hatred of digital rights management. I usually just pirate/play console counterpart (if said counterpart is not an FPS and runs at 60FPS)
Shove an iron rod into your ass and keep pushing until you pass out from pain (or bleed to death).
Feels just the same as Civ V and is cheaper.
Sounds like somebody's mad Ghandi handed his ass to him.
Civ5 rocks you fucking shitter. Civ4 is better though.
>Not liking Civ V
Only person lacking taste is you.
>Civ4 is better though.
Civ IV is better, III is better, SMAC is better, …
How's it good when virtually every alternative is better?
I've still got buyer's remorse from three years ago.
Not even going to try out the expansions because I already gave them 60$ for the disappointment of my year.
Indeed. Civ 5 has no Baba Yetu.
The game needs at least one two expansions before it has an acceptable level of content in it, anyway.
Steam was a fucking joke back in 2004.
0, I never liked the idea of using an intermediary who manages my games.
I have multiple accounts, the longest one is only 3 years old
But then how else are you supposed to play online games with your friends?
>weeaboos love Civ V
well that explains all the mods
You don't use it for games silly, you use it to hang out with your pals from the jay.
>weeaboos loving an overhyped game where they have to pay through the nose to actually have some minimal content
I wish there was a way to change your steam account name.
My account is from back when I was in highschool, and it's really embarrassing to log in with my account ID that I came up with back then.
You had to to play valve games. I remember having to get it to play what was either CS or HL2.
I never had a steam account and I rarely played games anyway, except replaying old strategy games that I used to play years ago
Tell me how much fun i;m missing on, /a/
$15 is paying through the nose?
I didn't have a job back then so without money there was no point in having a Steam account. I still pirate $60 games now since they're mostly not worth the price.
But Valve games are shit. I'll never understand what people see in those games.
Nothing, except for the current e-peen contest with badges were having right now. Coincidentally, I've got 10.
not much if you dont actually like video games.
Just do the things you enjoy. You don't need Steam to have fun.
Your wallet is probably better off than mine.
Not much, the only good game I remember in past 5 years is Path of Exile.
Some people bought the game (and the full-priced addons) before it appeared in the bundle, you know.
cool subjective opinions
How do I find jaypals to be my friend?
I'm still playing CS without steam, with programs that emulate lan connections you can play almost every pirated game online.
Valve games are objectively shit.
>with programs that emulate lan connections
It's called "VPN".
Why would you want to play games online?
You're using the word 'objectively' objectively wrong.
Modern Valve games are objectively shit*
got civ gold for 5 bucks and bnw for 12 bucks on greenman like 4 months after release
its your fault for buying on release, videogames depreciate extremely fast
Playing with friends are fun
can you be my friend, anon?
It took me 30 minutes to figure out my username because it was a handle I haven't used since then. I also had it attached to an e-mail address I've had since I was like 16. I'm an oldfag.
Half Life and Half Life 2 are good games. Portal 1 and 2 are also good. Team Fortress is utter shit.
Half-life was fun. It had great graphics for its time combined with puzzle-solving, a plot(not really), and FPS. If you were already an adult or a babby during its release, you obviously wouldn't find it any fun.
Oh and I forgot to mention: Fuck steam.
>can you be my friend, anon?
But Anon, aren't we already friends? :3
>got civ gold for 5 bucks and bnw for 12 bucks on greenman like 4 months after release
Forgot G&K. Even if that's "only" another 12 bucks, that's a lot of money for quite shitty, casual and incomplete game that only has crappy, bugged, randomly failing mod support as redeeming feature.
In my case I only have a friends who doesn't live close so playing games online is a nice way to have a good time and talk with him.
With what? Like you and your one single friend or a premeditated lan party? If you wanted to get any decent player base, you had to join steam. That was pretty much how they built their first userbase.
Nigga, TF2 is fun. especially when you play it with your friends.
>still using steam
Where are my Origin buddies at
Why are you angry now?
B-but it's okay to use :3 if it's in spoiler tags and ironic. R-right?
But HL1 was objectively shit. The game is like playing a generic modern shooter, but in 1998! I hate how everyone says it revolutionized the genre. It could have been a rail shooter and there would have been no difference in gameplay.
But I feel like I have to correct myself on what I said earlier. Portal was fun.
Oh man, I hit 10 years in April. I don't think I've played more than 200 hours total in steam, most of which was mindless TF2.
Anime is just so much better.
I prefer CK2, it's got fun elements to it and it's more than just a glorified map painting simulator.
Plus playing as people like William the Conqueror and even Genghis Khan is hilarious and fun.
Can we ban everyone in this thread?
How do I conquer a large country like Russia? I've just started and taking 2-4 provices at a time seems painfully slow and coring them is even slower
He's right. The only reason I played it is because it was given to me with a graphics card I purchased. It was subsequently delayed. This redemption is the only reason I have a steam account.
Are you me?
Why would anyone ever use Origin? It's everything Steam does wrong with nothing it does right.
That can't be real.
You can use google and find a list of hosts to play pirated CS with other people you know.
all of my soulgems
Oh man why aren't they sticking to the board's topic all the time why won't the mods babysit the userbase like in the crappy anime forum I came from WHY MODS
Make them release vassals and vassalize them yourself. Or just deal with the events from >100% OE for a few years. They're honestly not that bad.
Check the workshop.
>the game is like playing a generic modern shooter, but in 1998!
That's because it was the only modern shooter in 1998. That's why it revolutionized the genre. Doom and Duke Nukem was still running around with that retarded graphical style I don't know the word for.
>why aren't they sticking to the board's topic all the time
You must be from /v/.
If /a/non wants to be technical, this whole fucking post is on the wrong board.
I cannot get into that game.
I feel like a gigantic retard whenever I play.
It's a lot less complicated than all the sliders make it out to be.
How to play:
>Wait until you got enough dosh
>Build bigger army than your next opponent
>Conquer until you get to the point where you don't even have to try anymore
Congratulations, you are a grand strategy master. The soundtrack for Paradox's grand strategy games are always god-tier though.
>travel to famous Japanese sightseeing spots in the company of a pair of beautiful young sisters
Mod it to this and I'll buy it.
>mfw building glorious Britannian Empire
Europe can eat a dick, my American colonies are the future.
Back in the 1990s, such technology was too advanced for my younger self. Seems to me like you're also taking this discussion in the wrong time frame.
>retarded graphical style
nigga i will punch you
doomlike games are the only older games I can stomach
>The soundtrack for Paradox's grand strategy games are always god-tier though
Am I the only one who mutes it and listens to a gs let's play?
But it revolutionized the genre in all the wrong ways. After HL, every FPS was "Shoot bad guys and then move from point A to point B then shoot more bad guys and OH and push this box here because PUZZLES OH GOD OUR GAME IS DEEP."
Got Steam for HL2 as soon as I could get my fingers on it.
Have you thanked America for bloomers today?
Before I bought BNW, it was the only way I could have fun playing it.
A few games from now I'll have to reinstall it.
Is it true that Steam sucked hard in its early days?
>as soon as I could get my fingers on it
on Steam that is, so I could play HL2 as soon as possible.
>Implying that it stopped sucking hard.
The 90s was when adventure games were the thing anon. They just adapted that craze into a FPS thing and it kicked off. You're unable to see the revolutionary aspects or genius of it because you probably weren't a part of the times. As for whether for good or bad, I personally would much rather prefer point-and-click adventure games then another rehashed CoD.
I think you are high because the game was released and got popular around 2000/2001 and every time you yahoo! CS you ended in that website with the pirated game and a bunch of hosts to connect.
>no steam trading cards
>meaning no cute anime steam profile background
Would not buy.
Your mom sucked hard in her early days too but not anymore ever since she lost all her teeth.

Nigga please, I'm a test tube baby.
People who give up their principles to play certain games like Mass Effect 3 or Battlefield 3.
Yeah it was end of the 90s or 20s as you said. I just quoted a previous date which was way off. In any case like I said, lan emulators and pirating were too advanced for the child me and getting my parents to pay 50 bucks or so was how I got around to playing CS. You could have done the same, but you wanted to jump through some hoops instead.
Steam is really just elaborate DRM. It always has and always will suck hard.
Well I fucked up my timeline again. 2000s*
>installing proprietary, non-free DRM software to play even more proprietary, non-free DRM software
Fuck off /g/.
Keep sucking Gabe's dick.
Steam is pretty much the only proprietary software I use anymore.
>I've never played a good western "JRPG"
Arguably, Vampire - The Masquerade: Redemption is a bit of a western JRPG, at least when it comes to the storytelling. The main character is pre-defined and the player only has few opportunities to define his personality. And the ending pretty much depends on the player character's humanity, the choice is made automatically.
Mechanically and aesthetically it's very much western though.
>Kids are going to grow up in the 20's
Time flies by
Everything you could have a question about will be answered if you hover your mouse over things.
>tfw this and Fading Hearts will force me to delete my irl friends from Steam
>Nobody can know my secret
Fading Hearts sucks major ass. Please don't get it.
>Implying you had IRL friends in the first place.
ten years later and nothings changed
I used to tear up and cringe harder, but the only thing cringing is my dick.
