Now with added OC!
ITT: What /v/'s doing this coming winter ball.
And since we constantly get questions from morons who can't lurk for more than 5 seconds, have newFAQs for newfags:
>What is the Winter Ball?
A thing that happens every year where boards ask each other, and then draw OC and scenarios for the pairings that happen. Right now it’s gonna happen on the 30th.
>Okay, so who're we going with?
We're going with /x/.
>Isn't /a/ with /v/, though?
/a/ rejected us to go with /sp/
>Is there somewhere with all the current pairings listed?
There's a steam group here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/4chanball, but it hasn't been updated in awhile (God dammit Flopsy get on that shit). There's a few infographics floating around (their accuracy may vary, though; some things may change here and there).
>Is there anything I can do to help?
Original content like drawings, animations songs, creepypasta, and other stuff like that (I can’t believe I have to explain this).
>Alright, that makes sense, but what's /pol/ doing here? And what's this contest I keep hearing about?
Tl;dr: /lgbt/'s trying to make /pol/ go with them, so /pol/ is trying to get /x/ so they don't have to (even though /x/ asked us weeks ago and we accepted). /pol/'s justifications for this range from "BUT /V/ HAS NOTHING IN COMMON WITH /x/" (false; horror games and vidya creepypastas) to "EBOLA-CHAN IS OUR DAUGHTER" (true, but it doesn't mean they get first dibs).
The contest was made as a way to decide once and for all who gets to go with /x/ (probably by /pol/ since /x/+/v/ were already official before they started shitting it up). We're not going to back down, so we're in this for the long haul. It ends on October 20th.
>So what the fuck is actually going to happen?
I WISH I FUCKING KNEW.
Last thread: >>267545630
What kind of silly antics will Mr. /v/ones get into today?
Also, inb4 faggots trying to get /pol/ and /x/ together.
POST /X/ GIRL
and post /v/ fucking her
Screwed up, inb4 faggots trying to get /pol/ and /v/ together.
I'm pretty sure it was only once.
But /x/ asked us and we accept, /pol/. Just accept it and move on.
What kind of creepy shit would /x/ have in her house? I'm writing a story for us to win over /x/ because she's a qt.
i dunno why /x/-tan makes me so hard, maybe it's the rainbow stockings or the paleness or that she seems like she'd be hella yandere
I still want /pol/ and /v/ to spitroast /x/. Glaring hatefully at each other but not breaking eye contact while thrusting. and /lgbt/'s there working the back of /pol/ while /pol/ tries to pretend he's not.
>/v/ - Personification and smut of mostly non-vidya forums for a roleplay event
and I wouldn't have it any other way arigato mod-san
>/x/ can't make up her mind
>tells /v/ she's going with him and dumping /pol/
>tells /pol/ she's going with him and dumping /v/
>asks both to meet her there
>surprises them at the last moment and insists on going as a threesome
>/v/ and /pol/ are disgusted by this cowardly display of conspiracy
>/v/ and /pol/ go together, instead, and end up having gay sex later in the evening
I don't believe you.
Try a necronomicon and some ritual markings if you're still wondering.
Don't focus too much on -tan stuff
we need actual vidya characters too
It's not gay as long there is a girl participating.
Who's /v/ going with? It looks like /pol/ is going with /x/.
Shit, you know how to make a guy's drawings actually spoopy
this is why we shoulda go for /d/, at least we wouldn't be so far from the feminine dick
I bet /x/ has super scary bones with carvings in them and shit.
OR NO BONES AT ALL
Nazi plz that's Selena don't be fooled.
Don't reply to shitposts, just report and CREATE OC,
we can't disappoint the mods. They chose to support us.
Fuck, son, that's some spooky shit.
Yes, and it's pretty much all about trying to get /pol/ to go with them because of an "epic joke".
I would actually feel bad for /pol/ if they weren't going full, well, /pol/ with this /x/ business.
Why is /x/ the cutest of the board tans?
I go to /mu/ and I can confirm that we have been accept by /lit/, rejected because some idiot kept pestering them, and is currently trying /n/
>yfw /mu/ fits the /mu/ stereotype
They should just stick with /int/, they're made for each other.
>You stand in front of /x/'s house, ready for the ball
>You had rang the bell minutes ago, but no one came out
>You ring it again, but to no avail
>Eventually you just open the door and steps inside
>The whole house is dark, but your years of gaming in the dark have finally paid off
>Stepping around the house, you manage not to bump into many things, some of which make a squishy sound when you do
>Everything is hard to make out, but you eventually find your way to the kitchen
>Not sure what kind of weird shit she eats, but you smell that some sort of meat was recently cooked
>You decide to keep looking around, but you can't find any light switches
>Stumbling around, you bump into something that seems to be hanging from the ceiling
>It felt sort of... hot
>As you begin to feel it more, it feels like a jean texture
>The lights suddenly flash on to reveal the body of Mario hanging from the ceiling by a chain, dripping blood on the floor, and a large portion of his skim heavily burned
>To your right, you see /x/ standing, looking at you
>"You always complained about how all his games were rehashes, so I decided to end him, and end the rehashes"
>Stumbling back, you look closer at /x/ to see both of her eyes were now black, instead of just the one
>As she begins to step forward, you wake up and roll over to see /x/ sleeping softly in bed next to you
>She slowly rolls over, and looks at you before whispering:
2spooky4u? My first time writing a spooky story, sorry it's shit.
can someone draw this but with /x/ and /v/ instead?
I tried a version with more "realistic" orbital bones. but honestly, it looks better without, in my opinion.
[s4s] and /r9k/ was never off, and I had only heard that it's mostly /mu/ settling with /b/ cause they could get, literally, no one else.
Has /n/ even created a tan yet, or are yall just doing it to do it.
How IS this anyway, I haven't heard anyone's thoughts on it.
>Putting pants on /x/-tan's perfect ass
What are you, gay son?
>implying /v/ isn't pure
He's a virgin after all.
Okay, just don't forget to keep both images updated, new people are coming and they don't know what is going on yet, they are going to try to make new pairs with boards who already have someone to go with
Why would you want to give her pants, though?
I wanna explore a cemetery at night with /x/
/jp/? As a "just friends" sort of thing, just to hang out.
Kids are asking for erotic material of a personification of a subsection of an image board devoted to video games, possibly of flirtatious nature or even engaged in intercourse with a personification of a subsection of the same image board devoted to paranormal and supernatural related topics.
Other requests inquire for the personification of the subsection of the image board devoted to older video games engaging in possible incestuous activities with the personification of the video games subsection
What beautiful world we live in
someone draw /v/ tied up by /x/ for some sort of ritual and /v/ desperately struggling to get away but failing at it
/sp/ has two tans for American and Euro sports, but there's no picture of them in close proximity.
They're deleted instantly on /a/
And even when they aren't, the /a/nons flame it or dismiss it :<
He's going stag, but is he going with style?
Nigga he's /vr/. He could go naked and would still go with style.
All they do is argue and bully.
Also /lgbt/ has a new definitive tan, no one is sure if it's a lesbo, a fag, a female tranny or a male tranny.
>Cia and Bane?
>Not representing /tv/
You either hate the joke or don't browse /tv/ simpyl as that, but don't fuck up the tans of my home
looks better than that image
The thread isn't tumblr, but some of its inhabitants are.
Just tread carefully.
Oh boy I like where this is going.
It was aussies, I have no doubt in my mind it was aussies.
>the board known for being full of cartoonishly racist delusional fuckwits
>not liked by the board that is about multiple countries and cultures coming together and discussing international affairs in a civil way
gee I wonder why
>that time /int/ invaded a /co/ tan thread
They're just so perfect for /pol/.
I really like what's happening in the background.
>not liked by the board that is about multiple countries and cultures coming together and discussing international affairs in a civil way
>in a civil way
You must be a fucking convict doing ironic shitposting or just new as fuck.
Reminder that our relationship with /x/ will most likely end in either tentacle rape or alien probing
The arms are pretty disproportionate and small. Other than that, looks good, can't wait to see it finished.
That's exactly what /v/ wants, though
I guess she just wasn't /int/o Nazis
What happened to that anon that was drawing /x/ eating some of /v/'s creepypasta?
>squid ink pasta together
>/x/ & /v/ browsing /ck/ for pasta recipes together
>instead of noodles they get squid tentacles
>instead of pasta it's squid ink
>/x/ accidentally pours magic liquid in it while it boils
>it becomes alive and attacks them
>/v/ must rescue /x/ from the squid pasta
>/v/ is now rescuing his maiden
If that really were the case then Homestuck would still be allowed on /co/ and 4am threads on /v/ and celebrity drooling on /tv/
/v/'s culture is on-topic to the point that it's almost a meme to remind off-topic threads that they're not about video games.
The analogy in that screen does not apply to /v/ at all
>implying I kept up with this
Literally, my only other pic.
>board-tans aren't vidya
Last night, i was actually talking with /co/ about the possibility of making some Visual Novel based on the Winter Ball, showing how each board ended with each other, would be interesting
>he thinks Visual Novels are vidya
That's because it's outdated.
If NOT VIDYA really is a meme then this place really has become neo-/v/.
As somebody working on a visual novel with a team =, let me tell you that it is NOT an easy project to undertake unless you go full cheap.
If you want to hear some tips I can post some.
Homestuck's still allowed, just not generals.
/cm/ showed a positive reaction to them but it was actually /mu/ that asked out /n/ but /n/ was kinda on the fence before they asked out /cm/ and now it's apparently up in the air since they could take /cm/ over /mu/ or just take both or neither.
How's the progress anyway?
You see, that screen isn't too useful either.
You've highlighted what /v/ ISN'T
Then what IS /v/?
Daily dose and NEET circlejerking and Consolewar baiting?
If that's the case then please find me another board.
Everything in moderation
The reason homostuck was placed into generals was because thread diversity is something moot tries to preserve.
So when a very vocal fandom like homostuck takes a huge amount of the board up having homestuck discussion it becomes a problem.
This is why original GG threads became generals before their purge, because one to many GG threads were up consistently.
Personally I think you should be having fun when you're using up your precious time to go on a board.
VIP-quality browsing should be taken on instead of complaining or shitposting. When you spend your time on /v/ and finish browsing you should be thinking to yourself "Man, that was a lot of fun. I'm glad I spent my time doing that."
Doesn't this fall under that umbrella of "offtopic garbage"?
Why is it getting a free ride (and before you say "tradition" please realise that this ball stuff was mostly organised off-site over at 4chan house before this year, but for some reason, bandwagonners have decided to spam it here this year, which is bizarre).
Does /a/ have any sort of interest in this at all? I haven't seen a single thread over there and they're pretty no fun allowed when it comes to crossboard shit so did /sp/ just decide to take them on their own?
Is any of you the one spamming this shit in our thread?
I wouldn't think so.
I figure it's the same with /jp/, they don't care, or they don't care enough, and mods are quick to delete threads.
Well when I'm not discussing vidya I have a lot of fun posting and jacking off to doujins (especially vidya ones!).
I also enjoy talking about anime, that's fun for me.
Do you know why I don't have that kind of fun on /v/? Because it's not related to the board topic.
Same goes for board-shipping. /b/ is the perfect place for it. Not the video game forum.
Iunno /mu/ and /tv/ could be fucking awful together.
anon, unless you are a leddit incarnation, we actually like to socialize here with each other, it was always like this.
Even if that means calling out each other by tastes in video games.
You know the coolest shit about a club is that you are with people who share the same things, and not every other person is there. This is the major difference between this site and leddit.
however this can be questionable due to massive newfag immigration recently, due to GGIf you tolerate everything you'll see some shit.
Even if you look at video games, those companies who go the "wider audience" mentality WILL make shit games. Period.
>All these people hating on board culture
Truly /V/ has become the pit of shitlords
/a/ asked out /sp/ to make /v/ jealous as always and /sp/ likes /a/ but will never admit it.
/a/ & /v/ have a love hate relationship. /a/ has had a thing for /sp/ for a while now.
/a/ threads of this get trashed
/v/ is unidentifiable. Unlike neo-/v/ and neo-neo-/v/, which have clearly identifiable quirks and qualities that can be recognized and portrayed easily, /v/ is pretty all over the place and vague, varied in posting style and taste to the point that it can't really be classified as a single entity.
Rage, jadedness and cynicism are all common themes and traits that you can find in /v/, but they aren't actually specific or encompassing enough to be able to label /v/ as a "thing."
In the end, the post isn't so much about identifying /v/ as it is flagging down what neo-/v/ and other newfag shitposters are.
It wasn't as much "taking up the board" as it was talking about stuff that was totally unrelated to the board topic.
I wonder why that doesn't apply here.
>i can't really see how hard it can be
You are going to hit a wall unless you have the dosh.
You need a single artist that must be willing to work for free. Preferably secondary artists that will ink or color his work to make workload faster.
If you want to go cheap, only have like 1 to 3 different sprites per character.
You're going to need to find artists that 1. Know actual perspective and are willing to work for free.
Almost impossible to find.
Cheap mode, use filtered photos or backgrounds lifted from other games.
A little easier than the others since you can get different people to make different loops for each character in style. Still, going cheap and using pre-existing music is faster.
No. See huniepop for an example. Voice acting, specially amateur, is a no. Always.
And we're not even talking about the most difficult part. Good writers and at least one actual programmer to put it all together in Renpy.
Interesting...well, i guess it could work if it was a collab, but if people are already fighting for some fictional ball, i really can't see they working together to make something like this,but still, thanks for the information
Yes, we acknowledge its shit. But our shit stinks less than their shit
Don't you know, the ball's taking place on a boat.
You make it sound like Chris wasn't this huge anomaly on here years ago.
He's the second most documented person in the world, you don't get there without being relevant.
The Mods must be new to here.
>we actually like to socialize here with each other
/v/ isn't a fraternity for shooting the shit about non-vidya and talking about how great our board culture is. Board culture in the first place is meant to happen naturally. As soon as you reference it it feels manufactured and forced, this is what this personification stuff has been doing and is why everyone dismisses everyone's opinion based on "/v/-tan is angry! /v/ hates everything!".
Meta is just purely unhealthy for a board.
You gotta find a big enough ship anon.
ya' think we'll be able to make /x/ good again with this oc?
Good pasta is tough to make... Any thoughts on a spooky haunted Oculus Rift? Or maybe a Rift dev-kit that some murderer is circulating. It rams nails into the player's eyes when they die ingame and records video of it for said murderer's collection. VR is the spookiest vidya stuff I can think of.
>TFW anon never finished this picture like they promised
>/pol/ going with /x/
As someone from /sci/ I can't have this happen. Since /x/ and /pol/ are retarded faggots enough as it is I can't even image how their children will be.
>Hey /sci/ can you explain why aliens are actually jews who want to big foot? Also help me with my math homework you degenerate!
4 am threads = deleted
LOL threads = deleted
Fiveguys threads = deleted despite that being actually related to video games on literally every level
team4chan-guided woman/children-approved Board Culture(c) faggotry = fuck it, 300 posts
and then you cry about shitposting
There is a difference between tastefully off topic and "that".
Take gamer grub threads
They're basically food porn under the basis of "this is what we eat while gaming". Off topic but tasteful and at least vaugley connected to video games.
I don't even know what that is, but from what I recall, homestuck generals were similar to horsefucker threads in which they're just random posts trying to garner attention with no coherent conversation happening at all.
a major sin on here is trying to garner personal attention and self gratification, so it's clear why the mods had enough.
Too bad that's not how it's actually gone.
>/v/ is ronery
>/x/ is ronery
>/x/ invites /v/
>/v/ accepts without much fanfare
>/pol/ is invited by /lgbt/ and /hm/
>/pol/ considers /int/ and /lgbt/ briefly
>b-but muh disease maymays
>/pol/ acts like a conspiratorial shill and tries to just claim /x/ is going with them
>a tropical shitstorm briefly flares up in the pacific center
And now /pol/tards, who never know which way is up regardless, think that they're taking /x/. Or that /vex/ hasn't been a thing almost since the start. Or that /x/, a rather slow board with a history of being sockpuppeted and abused by crossposters, is being indecisive. And so now they're being radically embarrassed, in public, while /v/ churns out content and /pol/ is stuck clumsily editing what they make because they have no creators of their own.
The whole thing is unsurprising and monstrously pathetic. But if it inspires comics and more mocking of those redpilled retards then more power to it all. Don't try to claim it's anything more than it has been, though. /co/ and /tg/ have redundant auto-archives and have been documenting this stuff as they get wind of it. The record is complete. And just like always, /pol/ is being exposed for their revisionism and pettiness.
for those to be the last 2 HSG posts just feels right
I actually think /cgl/ approached them first and that made them realize it's happening ro something.
The worst part is /pol/ doesn't seem to see through Victorio Rodriguez's plan. This is all for the sake of helping out /x/ and they're not even willing to do that.
>/x/ is perfect the was she is, Anon.
There are some lies you just shouldn't tell, anon
