It is better than a marker but the fact that it is so obvious it ruins immersion is an issue. Good game and map design naturally leads you to the ladder.
AAA slop is incredibly simplistic in terms of game design anyway. Both the marker and the yellow paint are there to make the slop assembly process more straightforward, neither of them is for the player's benefit. There's no good answer because the question is wrong.

What I personally want from games are:
>no untraversible waist-high fences or boxes
>no pointers
>no paint

If you need me to feel confined, I want to feel REALLY confined. Not just feel confined because my character is on a wheelchair apparently. Invisible walls are also sus but you can just make it so every time you want to exit an open location the character will be like "Where tbe fuck am I going?"


Yeah I wish more games would just be like 'I don't need to go that way' instead of contriving blockages.


>instead of contriving blockages
It's not just blockages. It's """blockages."""

At least doors in Stanley Parable are unopenable because they're locked. At least there's a logical explanation.


What's more unimmersive: the character not being able to go that way or all environments being completely blocked except for the route(s) that are there for the player character. With the latter, the fiction surrounding the NPCs makes no sense. Why are these people distributed evenly along a winding corridor with no way in or out except the end points?

Too much trivia for where simple "i was wrong" would suffice. If we open almost any edition of the dnd and simply started counting lines of text, attributing it to different aspects of the game, it will be clear that everything else aside combat is an afterthought.

>I'm not talking about skill checks for searching and the like, but rules for how progressing through the dungeons works, the passage of time, and consumption of supplies. That aspect of the game was about resource management, and taking that risk to get more resources in the form of treasure.

Inventory management is not the same as exploration. The vast majority of people are not particulary interested in Excel simulators.
>which made the game less about the dungeon layout and more about the combat grid
A meaningless statement. 3e had more rules that could interact with dungeon layout than previous editions. It's just that playstyle has changed and people started to ignore those rules.


>There's a lot more than that, but "war is bad" is still politics my dude.
There's a difference between the way politics and ideology bleeds into everything or many broad themes being political in a sense, and something being an intentional political screed or even some sort of secret propaganda.

>There's also a lot about rightful kings

Not really. Aragorn et al is more King Arthur than any kind of political monarchism. While Aragorn IS a direct descendant of Isildur, his place as the rightful king has more to do with him fulfilling a series of prophecies than because he's Aragorn son of Arathorn son of Arador son of Argonui son of Arathorn son of Arassuil son of Arahad son of Aravorn son of Aragost son of Arahad son of Araglas son of Aragorn son of Aravir son of Aranuir son of Arahael son of Aranarth son of Arvedui son of Araphant son of Araval son of Arveleg son of Arvegil son of Argeleb son of Araphor son of Arveleg son of Argeleb son of Malvegil son of Celebrindor son of Celepharn son of Mallor son of Beleg son of Amlaith son of Eärendur son of Elendur son of Valandur son of Tarondor son of Tarcil son of Arantar son of Eldacar son of Valandil son of Isildur and therefore had the right to be king.

In fact, Gondor was actually ambivalent about the House of Isildur's right to govern Gondor, since the House of Isildur ruled the fallen Kingdom of Arnor, not Gondor, which was ruled by the (now long extinct) House of Anarion.

What you miss here is that Tolkien was intentionally engaging in myth-making, and in doing so, he was heavily borrowing from myth and legend.

So, yes, while things like Christian morality plays a part in driving the story forward, the story is also a more or less direct reference to the Ring of Gyges, an old Greek myth about a shepherd who discovers a big crack in the ground after an earthquake and when he invesigates, find an elaborate tomb with the corpse of a giant man wearing a golden ring. The shepherd take the ring and either he or one of his decedents notices when fidgeting with the ring that when its put at a certain alignment, it gives the power of invisibility. This person, Gyges, then hatches a plot to use the power of the ring to become the king's messenger, seduce his wife and then assassinate him, becoming the kPost too long.

He was doing that while also intentionally being anti-war, pro-environment, anti-racist, etc. Neither one invalidates the other.

>Inventory management is not the same as exploration. The vast majority of people are not particulary interested in Excel simulators.
You are just ignoring the parts of the game you don't care for. A lot of people then and now are most interested in this aspect of the game, since it's what defines the Dungeons part of it. It's just as easy to handwave the combat mechanics in this manner. It is pretty boring to reduce a fight to the death to a point scoring system. Combat also used to be pretty simple, even if rules like THAC0 confused players. In order to say that those early editions were dominated by combat rules you'd have to count things like class description pages or spells for that.
>3e had more rules that could interact with dungeon layout than previous editions.
3e had many more rules in general. The proportion shifted towards combat. When later editions started paring down the rules, everything else started getting cut first.


>In order to say that those early editions were dominated by combat rules you'd have to count things like class description pages or spells for that.

Also, monster stats and so on. Yes, those count. When most of the description of creatures is their combat stuff, saying that system wasn't focused on combat is blatantly stupid. Why shouldn't class rules count? It's what makes your characters distinct from one another and 80% of that is about combat.

DnD was ALWAYS about combat primarily. Rest of the stuff was an afterthought or even outright left to GM fiat.

>The proportion shifted towards combat.

Not really, if you want to cotinue saying that, you should actually start bringing some data. In fact if we take stuff like class abilities and so on, there were much more fo them that weren't about combat or at least had dual purpose (like bardic music). The game started to become more than home invasion simulator exactly at that point.

The way people played the game certainly has shifted away from this, but that's because it's started to lean more on free-form roleplay. That's not the same thing as having mechanical support for things other than combat. More to the point, it removes the game's infrastructure that makes the dungeon delving inherently challenging. Without any time or resource limits, there's no sense of urgency so the players can wander around as much as they want. The only source of tension becomes the combat, and the game leans more heavily on that. By 5e it's gotten to the point that players are incentivized to rest frequently because it resets their status to full for most things, and the system is built on the assumption that they'll go into every encounter fully refreshed.

>Also, monster stats and so on. Yes, those count. When most of the description of creatures is their combat stuff, saying that system wasn't focused on combat is blatantly stupid.

That's just circular reasoning. "The game is combat, so anything in the game is combat." Monsters stats were barebones because if you weren't fighting them they would behave similarly. By the way, random encounters weren't meant to always be combat. A lot of people just decided to play the game so it was always attack-on-sight. Here's a source that includes the reaction tables from early editions to illustrate the intent behind the design (picrel from 1e).
Even monsters were never just about combat, but I left them out because they skewed more towards combat than other parts of the rules like class features and spells. Some of those were combat related, but not all of them. It's silly to suggest spells like Knock, Rope Trick, Clairvoyance, Locate Object, etc fall under combat rules. The same goes for most class featuPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The practice and principles of Permaculture are one of the most important tools for not only creating a sustainable socialism, but also for repairing the damage done to the global ecosystem by capitalism, and lessening your individual reliance on the current capitalist system.Permacultural practice and socialism are two very powerful allies, and learning about permaculture should be necessity for modern socialists and communists.

>Jerusalem Artichokes
From my experience, they are really easy to grow. They are nice in a soup, maybe with a few potatoes and a bit of leek and then blend it all up with some cream. You can roast them in the oven as well.
But they spread very easily, and they'll keep coming back year after year unless you manage to dig up every last bit of the plant. Which can be a bit of a pain in the ass if you need the space for something else.

Why do people constantly call the saga of Tanya Mangaka a communist? just stumbled upon the guy's feed and it's full of boomer takes, SDF shilling(this is the complete antithesis of the JCP), and anti-communist retweets.

Regarding the topic, you know how many mangakas collab with the ruling government? A shitload, the "Cool Japan campaign" was the smartest thing the incompetent right wing LDP did


>To be fair, tanya the evil can very easily be read as communist
I wouldn't say that, since Zen very clearly has a low opinion of the Soviet Union. Some form of anti-capitalism as well as criticism of hyper-individualism is definitely there though.
>Tanya, who is an anti-communist herself, is portrayed as an objectively bad person, being actively punished by literally God.
She's also portrayed as a hypocrite who doesn't even believe in her own ideological principles, and is guilty of the things she accuses her enemies of. She hates commies because they supposedly kill people who aren't opposing them, yet she goes out of her way to massacre civilians and slip by on technicalities. She openly says that she would be okay with taking away other people's freedom as long as nobody takes hers, etc. These behaviours are also self destructive, since all her efforts to secure a peaceful position in the rear by doling out more violence only push her further into harm's way, and cause her enemies to multiply and become more determined. Her obstinate refusal to acknowledge anything outside of her own ego literally dooms not just her but the Empire.
They also go into more detail about how miserable she is during the whole affair. Remember that this reincarnation was intended as a punishment, and it is effective as one. This is somewhat lost in the anime since they don't get into the internal monolgues as much.

It was just a fancy way of saying overdesigned. You start adding stuff to make it plain outfit look more interesting, and then forget to stop.
Ignore the JRPG comparison, the point was its too many layers. There is a reason suit, shirt and tie are such a popular combination, it works, looks good. Modifying it too much (waistcoat, t-shirt) can still look good and more eye catching, but I feel like its a step-down in terms of overall aesthetics.


Yeah I can definitely see what you mean, the super layered look feels a bit larpy even though it's socially acceptable.

PS2 era graphics, designs and tropes are ripe for a comeback but indie devs haven't even catch with PS1 graphics yet.
Is making a 3d game really that hard?
Last moth I tried out The Punisher and God of War 2, the gameplay is simple, they just stick to a design and stick with it but the presentation is fantastic, real time capsules of that era's culture.


File: 1708450389018.png (864.51 KB, 1612x796, ClipboardImage.png)

In the PS2 and early PS3 era, developers had to concede that the technology wasn't advanced enough for full realism, so they had to compensate with style. a sort of semi-anime /semi-heavy metal poster 3D


graphics in modern games dont even look better
they're just unoptimized
>why arent they optimized?
because it doesnt sound cool to Wall St investors who are paying for the game's development. to them optimization, good music, good art design, good level design etc is pointless time-wasting fluff that gets in the way of slapping lootboxes on shit

PS2 games that look like this had a large team of people. I'm not saying it can't be done but it would need a decent size indie team to pull it off. You need competent devs and a competent art team that knows character modeling but also architecture low poly PS1 games are easy, timeless looking ps2 games are going to be much harder and not cost effective.

>Humanity has been driving away the Demon Lord's army for a long time by summoning "Heroes" once every 100 years. But one day, the Demon Lord's army devises a countermeasure to the Heroes: entrap and kill them when they're in a defenseless state straight after the summoning. To commemorate this historic fear, the Great Demon Lord designated that year as "Year One of Entrapment Killing." The Heroes have all been slaughtered by the Demon Lord's forces ever since. Fast forward to today, Year 1000 of Entrapment Killing: the summoners are very worried. "What kind of Hero should we call? I don't know… Someone take this out of our hands!" And thus, they summoned Hiroyuki, creator of 2channel and the master at settling debates.
That's right Japan is still in the "owned with facts and logic" phase of online discourse.

hes always been slimy, even in the 90s


Did he wrote this manga himself or was it just some admirer?

probably explains why 4chan is the way it is today too.

Administration is done by unpaid volunteers, and everybody was told that the highest value of the board was nothing but FREE SPEECH.

Even though the fandom is pretty dead. I wanted to see what a brony thread on here would look like since I’m a newbie

What does /leftypol/ think about this franchise and the online subculture it spawned? I feel like now that the little girls who made up the target audience are young adults I’ve been seeing more zoomers tell stories about how they were “traumatized” by the adult fandom and it’s becoming more in vogue to decry the whole “brony” phenomenon as “problematic”.

On the other hand though what’s the sociological explanation for millions of grown men becoming obsessed with a little girls cartoon in spite of hegemonic Western gender norms? I’ve read a lot of conflicting theories from academics and culture critics regarding this. Is it autism? Post-Irony? Or is there something about it that just makes it genuinely appealing?

Ah, so it's just Amerivibes, which are inherently anti-communist. Thought it was something specific.


Most disappointing game of the decade tbh. At least I knew other games were going to be shit, but this one at least had some potential with the way it was advertised.

But it just ended up being some limpdick Borderlands clone with a weakass critique of capitalism.

Would you use a window manager with anime mascot?

Adultery exists.


This is basically a giant metaphorical turd that I need to shovel away every time there's a discussion on how "leftists" are ruining everything - please don't add to the stereotype. It just makes more work for the rest of us that have to explain that you can be a leftist without being a stereotypical, fragile, censorious, permanently offended idpol cretin.

That said, FOSS projects have had a variety of sometimes somewhat awkward mascots for ages , and OS-tans have been popular for years even among Windows users (where in Japan they are semi-official and have extensive backstories including the Madobe surname etc) so I can't really see something horribly offensive here.


>Fella, you can't even fuck a woman your age. Stop harrassing married women on the street.

oh no I'm making you look bad on the internet, now all the mentally ill teenagers are going to think you aren't cool


this is just my subjective opinion but I prefer tiling window managers that make it easy to stack and switch between windows instead of trying to cram as much shit as possible onto the screen. being tiling is nice when you need it but I don't find automatic tiling WMs to be that useful unless you have a high res monitor maybe (I don't) or if you mostly just care about posting ricer screenshots on reddit (I don't). stumpwm is also written and configured in my language of choice, which helps a lot with it being my preferred WM.

I don't really see the appeal of other WMs. they're all basically the same and the differences seem to come down to ricer eyecandy bullshit that I don't care about.

Are computers a branch of state/defense/power within the context of a communist party?
It seems they are only treated as tools for mass propaganda and outreach for most I've come into contact with (and with questionable results – amounting to retweeting each other or posting take downs as Facebook posts with hardly any engagement). Is this way of using the technology maybe a huge mistake setting us back currently, especially considering the media platforms often are confirmed police/SIGINT tools where our groups are indisputably targeted/sabotaged?

if you think it's the only problem there, you most likely never even read a Manifesto.

It's just "sounds good in theory, but doesn't work in practice, people are too lazy, they won't work without someone forcing them" kinda of argument that capitalist ideologies like to repeat ad nauseum, just in more words.


Into the bin it goes.


Well then leftoids need to stop praising any media just because it pays lip service to vague fucking 'anti-capitalism', not even communism.


Is that what it originally said or what the translator wanted it to say?

Benny confirmed for Badiousian?


Didn't Badiou hate Deleuze tho?


Posthumous frenemies


How's the manga coming along?
Stopped two years ago when they caught some chick a year ago, and forgot to check up.

The series seems cool, it was just too slow on uploads despite feeling like a massive story that needs to be told.
Similar with Vinland Saga, but at least Vinland doesn't have a bad arc after its anime adaption.

The only authors I've been suggested are Althusser and Badiou. Who else?

Would Mao have approved of October 7th?


Usually the main criticism is Sakai uses a lot of quote mining.


Sison wrote a textbook on Maoism, similar to the one anon posted here >>21212


Any books that are unironically pro-Khmer Rouge or pro-Shining Path?

I know Jan Myrdal (Swedish NazBol) has praised Pol Pot before.


Also Herbert Marcuse wrote a book on Heideggerian Marxism

Roland Barthes is one of several theorists associated with structuralism and post-structuralism. Start with these books then read Saussure, Levi-Strauss, Jakobson, Barthes, Lacan, Althusser, Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault, Baudrillard, Derrida, and Kristeva

Looks like PhotoMatt's anti-trans meltdown has caused people on tumblr to just leave to fedi anyway, both because of the ban waves and just people bailing.

Now we just need Jack Dorsey to doing something dumber than usual.

Post your AI generated image collection. Also by the way the new midjourney v5.1 update has made realistic image making more easier. Good time to be alive for communist aesthetic lovers !

Honestly, if you really think about it, Ronald Reagan wouldve made a great Soviet leader. He lived nine lives: movie actor, soldier, lifegaurd, state governor, etc.

Had he been born in Soviet U ion with the same work history, he probably wouldve been Stalins spiritual brother.

Love him or hate him, Ronald Reagan was the last Republican president not to be a total goofball.
Look at the GOP after Reagan left.
Totally absurd.

Honestly everything about this game looked bad and usual racist Americans shit but I happen upon this trailer:
<A lawless terrorist region of the middle east
<..situated between Syria and Lebanon
<… your mission is to assassinate president Bibi
Has anyone played it? Do you really get to shoot bibi? Is this a secret anti zionist game?


>sniper ghost warrior contracts 2.
Damn. My mistake.. with a title like this why would anyone play this?
I guess that's how they got away with it.

First time on /leftypol/ Edition
I like drawing on occasion, mainly my OC Gabriel (redhead boy with a little femininity) and sometimes Larissa (his deadpan but kind gf)
Anyway this is an art trade thread, so exchange doodles or full-blown drawings, depending on what you're about

Didn't laserschizo also admit to testing on animals? Or am I thinking of another 4chan asshole?


How many people used lazeranons DIY posts? I'm honestly surprised more people on 4chan didn't start using lasers like he did.


Probably someone else.

At least a few others, some people have been lasering fighter jets and helicopters and UFOs and shit and posting it on 4chan. Some got arrested for it.

Yeah, looked it up and there's been quite a few of these retards.

First thread >>2278

I just watched the new Batman movie, it's about as boring and derived as you'd expect. The villain is a real psycho, apparently he hates Bruce Wayne's father because of his scam charity orphanage where children froze to death and the villain himself grew up in, and tries to publicly reveal his father's ties to organized crime and political corruption. Luckily Batman eventually teaches him the true meaning of love and forgiveness before the villain is thrown into an insane asylum for the rest of his days, and the credits roll.

I also watched Memoria, which was just as boring and I have nothing to say about.

Like they showed them going into the incinerator. I bet in the next one they'll have the gang get buried alive in a landfill and be perpetually alive in that forever dark. Never dying because they don't need to breathe or eat. Always sentient and trapped in that darkness.


I have no batteries and I must scream


I watched Poor Things and it was extremely good, I dunno what to make of it. Something about sex being good I guess.


Does the Dean know you're posting here Steve


some things ive watched lately:

night of the hunter
three days of the condor
strange days
