I miss the cheat modes that lack in modern games submitted by Conspirologist to gaming

thenobody 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago

They seem to have disappeared alongside the rise of achievements. Some games disable achievements while cheats are enabled, problem solved!

Meta-Discussion: About self-advertising submitted by ArsCortica to gaming

thenobody 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago

Also speaking as a person who makes stuff that I sometimes post here (articles and reviews videos):

Is it because the content is from someone posting theirs directly that it is lower quality? Not necessarily, and that's why there are upvotes/downvotes. If you feel that something does not have its place here, you can just downvote it, and if you like what you see then you can upvote it.

I really dislike the Reddit mentality of prohibiting posting content from the same source more than X times. This means that original content is inherently scrapped in favor of stupid reposts and useless junk. Let me give you an example:

I wrote a very successful April's Fools for a website (No Man's Sky 2 with Peter Molyneux) that was very well well received on Reddit, until after a while a moderator decided to remove it because it was my own contribution and overall I had posted 20% of my own contributions rather than the 10% they had in the rules. What happened next was that a user just basically posted a similar joke as a post title accompanied with a standard picture of No Man's Sky. Very crude and not elaborate, and yet this lower quality version sky-rocketed on /r/gaming and the mods were perfectly fine with it because it was not breaking any rules.

Meaning that if I want to post my stuff on Reddit, I would also have to be a busy bee finding other people's content to steal massively and repost at a 1:10 ratio. I can't be bothered to do that, but a lot of people do.

Most of the posts on r/gaming are easy, lazy garbage. I don't see their ways as a model to follow.

My point is, adding strict rules might muzzle content creators or people posting frequently from a source they follow, and lead to quick and dirty shitpost if people would still bother posting at all. I would rather see Voat as a cradle for alternative sources as well as content creators rather than another hostile reddit environment. The environment ties in how I will interact with the rest of the site. If I stumble upon something interesting, or if I want to contribute to a discussion, I will be happy to post here in Voat. If I have nothing to say there is no ridiculous incentive for me to shitpost, so I just remain silent and read what you guys post and say. Being part of the community in an organic way rather than because there are rules forcing me to talk more than I have things to say.

What should be done, then? What someone here asked me to do and I have done ever since: When I post one of my own videos, I add [OC] in the title to warn you guys that this is a video I made.

As to why the userbase is small here, I suppose it has to do with people coming from other websites when they are in crisis. There has been no such recent crisis.

Can anyone explain to me why 3D games use that standard FOV we're familiar with? submitted by killer7 to gaming

thenobody 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago

They mostly seem to choose a FOV that is good for consoles. People are far from the screen so it can't be too wide or the elements in the game would look too small in comparison. Besides, the hardware would have trouble displaying too much on the screen.

Survivalist is an indie top-down RPG that plays like The Walking Dead, also features coop submitted by thenobody to gaming

thenobody 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

When I received the review copy, I looked at the screenshots and felt obliged to tell the publisher that I also give negative reviews. He said "sure, no problem, do whatever you want." Turns out, despite the poor graphics I found the rest well done.

Circa Infinity will fry your mind over and over submitted by thenobody to gaming

thenobody 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

You mean left/right?

I remember having this same issue in some of the recent Rayman games, in which you can also run on walls/ceilings and then you get confused in which direction to "jump off" to avoid an obstacle.

In Circa Infinity, I don't see how else it could have been done because when you have two characters at the same time (more than half the game I suppose, since it start in World III) "Right" doesn't apply anymore, so it has to be clockwise/counter-clockwise to be reliable.

Steam is offering mass refunds for No Man's Sky submitted by ExpertShitposter to gaming

Another problem is also pre-order bonuses. Whether it is a small rebate, or in-game items. The publishers know what they are doing to woo people over.
