This thread is about the games you loved which weren't met with huge commercial success or weren't recognized as niche/cult games.
What did you like/love, but did not really make a mark on the industry?
These games do not necessarily have to be "special", just being fun is enough to qualify.

Some quests could be a little tedious, with some walking back and forth from one town to another, and videogame "logic" may apply to the resolution of quests, like "how do we fight off this castle invasion" having the answer be "get a magic hammer from an old lady at the black market so you can meet a tiny old man to get a wind spirit so he can spread sleep-flower over the enemy" but if you pay attention and talk to NPCs, it isn't completely mental. Some (most) maps are mazes and some even go the extra distance and get all bent-space on you (fucking elves man), this can be a little discouraging but it isn't that bad.

You end up revisiting a lot of places more than once, but they never seem to get old, you have access to different areas previously blocked first time around and so forth.

I have to say that this game has little new, but the execution is top notch. If you're into a magical adventure on the SNES and can remember that this was all done on a 16 bit system with less than 5 fucking megabytes (LESS THAN FIVE MEGABYTES), give this a go even if you haven't played other SoM games.

Secret of Mana and Legend of Mana for the PS1 were awesome too, and you should play them too of course.

also sorry if the art is a little animoo you can ban me if you want

tl;dr give it a try it's pgud

Fury 3: a space planet shooter for Windows 95 (that isn't the third part to anything, so why is it 3?).

I remember playing this when I was 4 years old, getting the most value out of the family's first computer with a GUI. Now that I think about it, this is probably the first game with 3d graphics I'd ever played.

You fly around maps that I remember feeling as if they were the curved surfaces of a globe, and accomplish objectives by shooting lots of shit. You pick up special weapons and ammo from the shit you destroy. Every 3rd mission has a bitching boss battle, and then you move on to the next planet. The game is pretty easy and arcadey, easily controllable solely with the keyboard. Because I was only a small child, I had no way of knowing about or being able to purchase a more advanced pc space flight sim like X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to this game in person, or on the internet.

Fury 3 was just a Windows 95-native Terminal Velocity, which a lot of people have played (and used to come in a bonus disc as shareware with some versions of Windows 95 as alongside Netscape Navigator and other such programs people might want.)

You can still buy it on GoG.com or steam.
Runs in dosbox, and Terminal Velocity was pretty fucking fun for me, back in the day. PLayed the Shareware version of EP1 that was on the bonus shit section of my Duke Nukem 3D disc.

I also had a lot of fun with SWIV 3D, a helicopter voxel-graphics arcade flight game, kind of like Desert Strike and Soviet Strike. Differed in that everything was voxel rendered, and you had rotation control of the camera. Also had altitude control of the helo.

Kind of fun, it and Mass Destruction pretty much fulfilled all my mindless vehicular combat game needs back in the day.

Here's a helpful table for when your users bug you about what the game can run on.


That game looks very clean, I bet with low settings it can even run on integrated netbook cards.
>> No. 57826 ID: a4c0e9
Absolutely, not very CPU intensive. You do need a good GPU to run it well on high but that's due mostly to post processing, plus we have real time global illumination which can be quite taxing.

People are still fucking playing it lol, we ended up completely scrapping it because there's no fucking way we can afford to sustain any decent sized multiplayer game on our budget. Those little multiplayer demos could probably host max like 20 people at any given time.

Good question.

Id hardly call his wife a whore if he forced her into an open relationship and she took advantage of that. Quit living in the 1920s.

Because its heilarious. Some guy who wanted to be in an open relationship to bang broads instead gets cucked, then his wife leaves taking his video game machine, and he tries to be gay but fails at that too. And it happened to one of those piece of shit SJWs who insists on inserting poorly written SJW approved characters in video games.

Don't get me wrong, I've nothing against gay people or other "SJW" topic people in video games but not as a poorly written "gay" character or "trans" character but a character who is gay or trans, not a walking stereotype solely defined by whos pants they want to get in. Someone like Juhani from KOTOR who was gay but was also a well written character who didn't just come right out and blurt "itsa me, the gay character, imma number 1". You found that the pussycat liked pussy organically and you didn't even have to find out if you choose to skip all the dating bullshit.

What a shit answer to the question. It implies all authors who have trouble writing the opposite sex don't consider women to be people. And it can be applied equally idiotically to everything.
>how come you write good villains?
>well bradshaw, i've always considered villains to be people
>how come you suck dicks george ridiculous retard martin?
>well bradshaw, i've always considered dicks to be people
Question is as stupid as the answer considering this dumbass doesn't write good characters, they are all twilight tier mary sues. His only innovation is torturing them to hell, but there's no story arc there, he just tortures them, he doesn't even write it as a tragedy.

So I thought I'd go play Oblivion. You know, that game starring Tom Cruise, some cute Ukranian chick from Quantum of Solace, some cute redhead bitch, and some Morgan Freeman.

I have a couple questions, should I answer yes when the evil robot lady asks me if we are still an effective team? Should I play the obligatory canyon chase level with the obligatory Statue of Liberty? Should I embrace the teaching of Xenu?

No but serious Opchan recommended mods to make it not look like so much anus and maybe add some cool shit.

I've never actually played the game before, part of those games I missed while I had nothing to play it on and as the very definition of a slowpoke gamer I'd like to give it a try now.

Also anybody know if its possible to port shit from Fallout 3/NV to Oblivion? There seems to be guides to do so for the opposite way, Oblivion to F3/NV but nothing to bring Fallout 3 or New Vegas assets to Oblivion.
>> No. 57837 ID: 8be205
>Also anybody know if its possible to port shit from Fallout 3/NV to Oblivion?

Not as far as I know. Armor/clothing meshes are assembled differently for Oblivion (needing to be multi-part to equip the hands, upper torso, legs, etc.) and Fallout (pretty much one-piece body and a head items.) You can assembled the meshes from Oblivion into one full mesh for FO3, but it's very hard without a lot of work to break it into multiple parts and then assign it the right identifiers for each location.

Some weapons, I believe, can be ported from FO to Oblivion but the textures need downgrading for the most part due to Oblivions console-first nature requiring most meshes be below certain width/height sizes to fit into XBox 360 and PS3's 512mb ram limitations, and the firearms will be wonky because of the much more limited projectile physics simulation.

So, pretty much, stick to stuff made for Oblivion for mods. Also dependencies might get fucked for a lot of older mods which authors have abandoned.
>> No. 57848 ID: a03eb7
  Play Morrowind. It's much better than Oblivion and OpenMW is looking pretty good so far, someone has even managed to even integrate working multiplayer. Basically people made a new engine and are porting over morrowind in it's entirety.

I haven't played it in years, so I don't know which mods are still around and compatible with what.

The Unofficial Patches would be a good start.

From what I remember, the important mods were the huge overhauls, FCOM would somehow combine them all into one super-mod. I was very bandwith limited at the time, so I played with the TIE mod. It used all standard components, but removed the enemy and loot scaling. Enemies would be very dangerous from the start, and becoming actually fair once you leveled some.

Unique Landscapes had some utterly beautiful scenery. Eerie forests, scenic coastlines, stunning canyons, and actual farms.

Deadly Reflex was good for a laugh, and decapitating or cutting people in half.

Magic mods were cool for adding new spells and actually making magic useful, but they also made you insanely powerful. I would cast a speed spell on my horse, and it would run faster than the world could load on my admittedly weak machine.

Open Cities would remove the gates to cities, making the world more free flowing, but it had lots of incompatibilities with other mods.

  Anyone else playing Battlefleet Gothic: Armada? This game is fun as fuck. Pretty fun space/tallship RTS, with an added bonus of being in the Warhammer 40k Universe. You basically create an admiral and level up/grow your fleet of spaceships. Campaign is Imperial Navy only so far, but in Solo Skirmish and Multiplayer you create separate admirals allowing you to play different factions or have different types of fleets within factions.

Still in beta but I've only encountered some minor stuttering during cut scenes. Also all the Imperial navy ships look the same...but that's just a lore thing...

I like the campaign, has story missions than side missions over different systems in the Gothic sector. Basically trying to defend against Abaddon's 12th Black Crusade, and fight off other xenos.

Seems to be a lot of other stuff like losing planets to chaos, worlds having forts/defenses, But haven't gotten super far so not sure if any of that has really come into play.

Just a heads up, there was a game breaking bug/cheat that recently started popping up. Basically you'd be in the middle of the game and lose your camera and the game would crash in a fatal error. Apparently this is a cheat or some kind of exploit, but the devs have responded and started VAC banning so it may be fixed now/soon haven't played in a few days.

I'm not enjoying this as much as I thought I would. It's not a bad game, but gets frustrating easily and the "story"/characters are just stereotypes. I was hoping for a more interesting story, I guess. More backstabbing.

I'm resorting to RAM ALL THE THINGS (and spam boarding actions) with a few long ranged ships in support.
I'm frustrated by the pause thing not being a full pause, though I understand why they did that.

Finished it. Turns out to be very repetitive & often frustrating.
The dialogue that is supposed to make it all work is also subpar.
It's also called Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, but there's no mission were you actually have a HUGE fleet at your disposal. I was hoping for the final mission to have a retarded amount of ships in it, since most missions up to it only allow you to take a few ships.

It's extra retarded to have enemy ships go to -1 HP on their hull, but by Deus Ex Machina warping out anyway. At least make them warp out at say 25% or let them pop the 10 second shields you have as well to allow the suspension of disbelief to do its work.

Meh. Would not recommend. There's an endless things to improve in this game. From story & dialogue, to better logic (like unable to reuse the same ships within a given term, so you're forced to make use of your fleet), to fixing inconsistencies (when your ship steals info from the enemy and warps out, finding itself 'lost in the warp', you somehow have the info & the story continues? how the hell is that possible?) and bugs (crashes & stuttering mostly). Overall feels unfinished.

So two things.

1. My summer Holiday is going to be spent home
2. I will be traveling to places you cannot imagine, to see the C-beams glitter at the Tanhhauser gates, all these moments in VR, like tears in rain.

Man I was expecting a premium after the Rift debacle but pulled the trigger anyway, got my confirmation email 7 minutes after preorders launched so I'm pretty confident I'll get mine shipped on the fifth of April.

This is the kind of stuff I'd like VR for. Vehicle driving sims, like ED and Rise of Flight/IL-2, SimBin race games, and shit like Squad, Arma, and other headtracking FPS games. RPGs and shit might be fun with it too, or games like The Witcher or definitely Mount and Blade.

The whole motion controller rig stuff can suck a dick until force feedback can be added in a real-world analog manner.

I think this shit's still a good 3 or so years away before it's actually worth owning for anyone who doesn't just have an early adopter fetish.

I do believe in the tech and I think someday it will dominate the market, but maybe more around 2020.

Rage could best be summed up as a game with some really good gunplay, and tons of wasted potential for everything else. With some Far Cry/Shadows of Mordor style open-world elements and a actual plot it could have ended up being a serious competitor against Fallout, so I have no dobut Beth/Zenimax killed Rage 2 because of that.

Pretty much exactly as you said, it had alot of potential. Good gameplay, good background story, excellent environments at times, and okay characters. Just the plot itself was paper thin, the ending was terrible, and alot of the driving areas were really freaking bad. Plus it ran like crap on the systems of the day.

With a bit of refinement it could be a truly excellent game. It was already fun as fuck but needs a bit more polish to make a bit less mindless.

I think like Prey 2, Rage 2 is probably not going to happen either for quite awhile if ever.

Check out Pirate Doom. I found it a couple weeks ago and it's pretty great.

There's Hexen and Heretic if you want swords and sorcery. And Strife was a really early prototype of components that would eventually show up in games like Deus Ex. But generally it seems like back then total conversions ended up being released as commercial software instead. (I remember reading there was great bitching when Evilution went commercial hours before release)

There was a survival horror themed WAD called Cold as Hell released years ago but I heard it doesn't work with modern source ports due to bugs? There was a open-world survival TC that released some screenshots last year, but I forget what it's called or if it's still being worked on.

The Build engine (Blood, Duke3D, Shadow Warrior) also had NAM and WW2 GI, which were terrible.
