Charts in spaaace

I beseech you, servants of the Imperium, for help. "Stars of Inequity" for Rogue Trader has some very fun planet generation rules. Of course, these rules are stretched across miles of paper and there is no consolidated chart segment in the book. Does /cog/ know of any simple random number tools I could use to autogen planets using preestablished charts? I definitely don't want to spend hours rolling d% in front of my players, and I don't want to do it in advance because discovery should be spontaneous and pull in the players with novelty and mystique. I was thinking maybe a VisualBasic program or something similar for the tables--any ideas?

I know the thread is old, but just in case you are still around here somewhere and haven't solved your problem, I might just write a simple program for that. From how you describe it, it sounds simple enough. I know nothing about the game itself though so maybe there is something not immediately apparent that could be an obstacle.

So, from how I see it, you just need a number of parameters to be randomly picked from pre-established ranges, some of which (the individual parameters, not the ranges) may affect availability of parameters in other ranges.

It makes me sick knowing all these potentially good games were abused or trashed.

With Killer Instinct out on PC I gave it a try, but even though it seems fun, I really can't get on board with this business model.

I feel like they're shooting themselves in the foot by only having one free character at a time. It really doesn't let the player try out different stuff and get a good feel for the kind of content they'd be putting down money for.

Sony General - Onimusha Souls Edition
Last generation: >187247

PSX keynote just happened.
Anything that caught your eye?
Personally the most excited for Ni-Oh and Hob. FFVII:R was obviously exciting, as well. Though I still remain cautious.
But I think what I appreciated the most was Sony's willingness to go fucking weird with all the VR stuff. I'm not even interested in most of it, but kinda feels like we're back to the PS1 days were they're just throwing shit against the wall and seeing what sticks.

Bought The Order: 1986 for $9 during PSN's Black Friday deal. Haven't played a lot of it, but it definitely relies too much on its impressive graphics and tedious quick time events to get by. I also picked up Until Dawn and was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining it was. An engaging "cinematic" game that subverts some of the tropes - like how we respond to QTEs - while overall being a fun horror story that hits all the right notes.

So although there seems to be an agreement on this game looking awful, discussion in the General thread seems enough to merit a containment thread. This is that thread.

Here are some reasons why you shouldn't support EA and Disney's new Battlefront game this holiday season and how they'll convince you to pay for game with a fraction of the features and content Battlefront II, the ten year predecessor to EA Battlefront, had for almost double the price of a standard AAA new release. But most importantly, this will show you why EA should not be supported and how entrenched they are into gaming journalism and the likeliness that they will make sure to maximize review scores and praise in order to sell their projected 9 million copies among PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Information regarding game content and pricing:

But the same is true of Disney itself, otherwise we would have Motorcity.

Redeemed themselves from Korra, I take it is what you mean, the $20 game that while short had extremely tight gameplay and a fantastic combat system that seamlessly allows you to cycle between using all four elements?

No yeah I can see how they would need to be redeemed from that, what a tragedy that was.

I only just recently decided to try this game, oh my god, this is one of the worst Mega Man games I've ever played. Awful stage design, useless weapons, and extremely cheap bosses. (Vega is almost impossible without a bunch of E-tanks) Also, no save feature. A game released in 2012 uses passwords instead. Even MM9 let you save.

Anyway, vidya games or whatever.

That article doesn't even mention the Sonic twitter. Also that tweet is an exception given how

A.) It actually is literally SEGA's PR department trying to score a "sick burn" to rile up the fans and not a disgruntled fanboy, and the snarky passive-aggressive attitude is because that twitter account is actually in-character as Sonic. It's not meant to be taken too seriously, and GT knows that. Their tweet reply even called it a burn.
and B.) GT puts out videos that have no discernable credit for who wrote it, and they always have the exact same narrator. And given how GT responded to "Sonic's" tweet, it's safe to assume this is the entire website's official opinion rather than one writer.
