    [–] Gamers of Reddit what are some good quotes from video games? AndroidWG 15 points ago in AskReddit

    "Scotland is not a real country! You're an English man with a dress!" - Soldier, TF2. I'd pay hundreds for another game as fun and witty as TF2. I fucking love this game.

    "In the first age, in the first battle when the shadows first lengthened, one stood. He chose the path of perpetual torment. In his ravenous hatred he found no peace, and with boiling blood, he scoured the Umbral Plains , seeking vengeance against the dark lords who had the wrong to him. And those that tasted the bite of his sword named him...

    the Doom Slayer." - DOOM 2016, I swear this audio gives me chills to this day. Such a fantastic game.

    [–] Making a prototype for a game, and I accidentally made this AndroidWG 648 points ago in gaming

    It really makes it scary lol. This one happened because I forgot to add the running animation on the Animation Blueprint

    [–] Making a prototype for a game, and I accidentally made this AndroidWG 45 points ago in gaming

    Yeah, if I wanted I could slap scary sounds from YouTube and a bunch of free stuff from the Unreal Marketplace and publish it. Making this as is took about one day.

    [–] Music Loudness by Genre [OC] AndroidWG 2 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    I think this is something people miss a lot of the time. The vast majority of people listen to music from not so great headphones on a loud environment like public transport for example, or at home though mediocre phone or laptop speakers. For those cases a high dynamic range master would be pretty useless and might make the listening experience even worse for the average Joe.

    That is actually a good idea, would probably make some people shit their pants lol

    [–] Making a prototype for a game, and I accidentally made this AndroidWG 28 points ago in gaming

    I added the Run state on the character State Machine but forgot to set an animation, so it used the pose from the model. First time I playtested it wasn't recording, I thought it was funny and decided to record and post here.

    [–] Steam Controller is officially Out of Stock and being discontinued. AndroidWG 1 points ago in pcgaming

    I definitely would have gotten one but I live outside the US so it costs like 900 bucks and buying with the 5 dollar price tag is impossible. Always wanted one, my two 560 controllers are getting worse and worse... RIP in Pepperoni Steam Controller, you will be remembered.

    [–] oh god here comes number 6 AndroidWG 3 points ago in surrealmemes

    Kinda reminds me of this song for some reason.

    For the lack of an iPhone and a camera, this was rendered in Cinema4D and the wallpaper was edited on Photoshop.

    [–] Common gaming tropes you've come to hate AndroidWG 1 points ago in Games

    Having to follow characters, mostly because they always walk and almost always just slightly slower than you, so you can't just keep pressing W until you get to the destination. Bonus points if as soon as you touch atoms with the characters they stop walking to look at you and mechanically say a random line to then continue after 10 seconds. Just so annoying.

    [–] The 2010s are ending, so for you, what are the top 10 best games of the decade? AndroidWG 2 points ago in Games

    In no particular order:

    • Cities Skylines: The hundreds of hours of fun this game brought me cannot be underestimated.
    • Undertale: Sincerely, this game is kinda underrated nowadays. It's just so incredibly unique in the sea of blandness that are AAA games and even indie games sometimes.
    • GTA V: Just... what a game man. The Online and R* shady decisions kinda stained my view of the game but it's still super fun and very polished.
    • DOOM: I don't think there is an FPS game with such polished gameplay. It just feels so good.
    • Mario Kart 8: Same as DOOM, but for racing games. It still looks incredible and it still brings hours of fun (and rage) with my friends.
    • Euro Truck Simulator 2: 500 hours well spent. The most underrated part of this game is how well it makes you feel like you're actually driving a 40+ ton vehicle. So many driving/racing games fail to give you this feeling.
    • Zelda BOTW: A true sandbox, completely revitalized what an open-world game can be for me. Lots of fun, incredible world design, and soundtrack. Just a really amazing game.
    • P.T.: Never actually finished it because I'm a massive pussy, but I think we can all agree that it is one of the most frightening experiences from this decade.
    • Journey: Simply the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. The only way I can describe it is "a once in a lifetime experience"
    • Minecraft: I guess it counts since 1.0 was in 2011 but whatever. This game man, such a huge part of my childhood. What can I even say about it? Every time I'm playing it and Sweden starts playing, I just want to cry. It brings so much joy but at the same time, it reminds me of a time that's never coming back. Technically it's not as good as other games in this list or thread but it doesn't matter. It marked my life and many others forever. It has to be my personal favorite game of all time.
    • Super Mario Odyssey: Yes, the 11th game on the list, but I just had to include it here. The gameplay is on point and super polished, just like the game as a whole. Beautiful and immersive worlds, and just loads of fun. I love this game.

    Honorable Mentions

    • Portal 2: I REALLY wanted to include this but 12 is too far from 10 so yeah. But holy hell this game is incredible. It basically introduced me to gaming beyond Flash games when I was growing up and showed how much games can immerse you on a different world. I love the humor, the story, the atmosphere, the epicness, the gameplay, everything about this game.
    • BeamNG.drive: Almost made it into the list, an incredible technical achievement and also very fun.
    • HITMAN 1 & 2: Very fun and incredibly complex, one of the true sandbox games.
    • KSP: I'm definitely too stupid to enjoy this more, but it still brought me hours of fun.
    • Witcher 3: I love this game as much as the next guy but literally everyone has it in their lists and I had to give some space to some other games.
    • Game Dev Tycoon: Not the best technically but it has a very fun and solid gameplay loop. Felt like I had to include it here somewhere.
    • DiRT 3: I love this game, more than any other on the franchise mostly because I can actually play it and have fun since I'm so bad at driving. Solid gameplay, really love the maps and the graphics actually still hold up quite well.
    • Forza Horizon 2: The sole reason why it took me so long to sell my XOne. One of the best racing games ever, for sure. It stuck with me a lot more than the next 2 games.

    [–] Google Pixel 4 review—Overpriced, uncompetitive, and out of touch AndroidWG 0 points ago in Android

    What the hell is wrong with Google? They just fuck everything up. Allo/Duo and Hangouts, GPM and YouTube Music, regular YouTube, Pixel phones and a thousand other products that got replaced or killed without ever getting close to their actual potentials. Is their management just completely incompetent? How can one of the biggest companies in the world be so incompetent?

    [–] Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen calls on international community to stand by Hong Kong AndroidWG 4 points ago in worldnews

    Maybe it is strategic? I'm not sure but it looks like Japan and the Japanese aren't very fond of all this China kerfuffle with HK, so she is trying to get them on their side. Japan is also a big influential country so maybe that's why.

    [–] Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen calls on international community to stand by Hong Kong AndroidWG 393 points ago in worldnews

    Wonder why she released the statement in Japanese as well. Does Japan and Taiwan have a significant relationship? Never heard of such a thing.

    [–] What is the most accurate way to call a function based on time? AndroidWG 1 points ago in Unity3D

    But I think the major problem here is that I need to check every few milliseconds if this time that I'm taking from somewhere (System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch, Time.time, Time.deltaTime and stuff) equals the time between beats so I can execute some code. And this is where the lag is introduced it seems.

    [–] Yes. AndroidWG 7 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    string l = "l";

    string o = "o";

    Console.WriteLine("{0}{1}{0}", l, o);

    [–] The sound control settings of Pokémon Sword and Shield are locked behind a key item obtained in game by an optional NPC. The game doesn't inform the player about this NPC or option in any way. AndroidWG 54 points ago in Games

    Yeah, the graphics. Just remember, on the same console, you have Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey and Captain Toad, locked 60fps titles that look incredible, and also stuff like Luigi's Mansion 3 that looks absolutely stunning and runs at a locked 30fps.

    Pokemon is one of the highest grossing franchises of all time. Game Freak has 143 employees, asking 60 dollars for a game that looks like a direct port from 3DS? Are you fucking kidding me? And then they do shit like this, it just makes them look incompetent at best and just a bad developer at worst.

    I just wished so bad that they just gave the Pokemon rights to the Mario Odyssey or BOTW team and let them do whatever they want. Those guys really seem to know what they are doing.
