It has recently come to our attention that the users of /games/ are seeking a reliable method of communication for online play and general conversation about games. I am unsure if anyone is aware, but, there currently exists and unoffical matrix room specifically for this located at: https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org

If anyone is interested in gaming discussion, or, online discourse please feel free to join. That is all. Thank you~

Just noticed that both the old /gsg/ thread and the hoi 4 threads were full so here's a new thread.

Reposting from the Hoi 4 thread:

I found a supposed leak detailing the L-NPP paths, despite the lib bias of the devs Gus still seems pretty based. Plus it also has the 1976 and 1980 L-NPP candidates.

>At this stage, mass prosecution of the upper class will begin, now that the courts are sufficiently saturated with L-NPP appointees. Hall’s FBI director will have assembled lists and evidence on the illicit gains of the American wealthy, and, starting all at once, mass arrests will be carried out of the most unsavory individuals. This is a crisis as well, as this upheaval causes capital flight from the United States,which Hall can react to in a variety of ways - including shooting down private planes.


Yeah I'm thinking he's based

The next update will greatly revamp the way combat currently works by changing many minor, albeit important stats (best example being the over stacking division penalty getting wayyyy less severe).

But it'll be locked behind a DLC. so poorfags are fucked lol.

Modern games are boring as shit because the player has no reason to play the game. This sounds retarded but it's true, modern games are designed with an end goal, too many games are either multiplayer minigames or open world games where the world is filled with nothing and you have no sense as to what your supposed to do in those games, what ends up happening is the player either feels as if they're aimlessly moving a character in the game accomplishing quite frankly nothing or have already finished the game like in games like Alex legends or modern warfare and thus have 0 reason to open or play the game again as it's unlikely they'll find anything new or interesting to play. This lack of a purpose is one of the reasons as to why games since the late 2000s started seeing a noticeably declining quality in actual game design despite the fact that graphical technology has improved(of course if your willing to pay thousands just to run new releases at consistent frame rates than it's an improvement) and player dissatisfaction has risen to a point where ancientfags in gaming either have given up on new releases due to fears of wasting their money on a game that's gonna be shit and bug infested day 1. I blame world of warcraft for this trend as they made the belief that you can get players consistently spending on a game without a real purpose, and with it a bunch of new MMOs hoping to copy world of warcrafts success started launching all while making mistakes the developers of WOW had already came over during the 90s and early 2000s, suddenly the open world format would become an increasing normality with franchises like far cry and soon the world of modern gaming began to decay over a reason that could be fixed pretty easily. Oh well

The problem with modern games is capitalism. It's why we get rehashed shit, microtransactions up the ass, and huge marketing campaigns for shitty rushed games.
GAMERS need socialism because it's the only way games can go back to being FUN. Games were GOOD when they were made by passionate nerds instead of committees seeking the most profit.

Jeopardy on the… NES (developed by Rare for Game Tek). Fuck this is tedious. In this version of the quiz show, you have to type every response with a virtual keyboard. And it doesn't even make use of both buttons on the pad, so you can't delete anything by pressing the other button, you have to instead select a virtual delete key. I understand that they wanted to stay close to the original, but this is actually harder than the TV show. One typo and you are fucked. They should have used multiple choice instead or at least offer that as a mode. Or they could have limited the clues to only those with short correct inputs like "MIDI", and not "CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR".

Don't play Jeopardy on the NES, kids!

So the entire premise of Majora's Mask is that Link lost his friend Navi and went on a journey to look for her… And never finds her in the end. Did they forget about her at some point in development? Tatl gets a nice resolution to her story, but we never hear about what happened to Navi. What a cruel way treat a character from the previous story.

I am a socialist in almost every aspect in my life. I help organize, I promote worker rights, I don't ignore feminist and racial struggles. Yet when it comes to console exclusivity I transform into the complete opposite of everything I believe in. As an owner of a console, I enjoy exclusives and I hate it whenever an exclusive gets ported to PC. I know every game being on every piece of hardware especially PC is the right, moral, and "proletarian" choice, but I can't help but rage and denounce at the sight of any exclusive, even the ones from a different console, gets ported.

Maybe it's some residue PTSD from being in a tight-knit Demon's Souls community when I was younger, and seeing the community flooded by morons and petit-bougie assholes when the Souls series was ported to PC.

What do you guys think of console exclusivity?

I suspect OP is taking the piss and yet I have to admit such people exist. Consoles really shouldn't exist and I say that as somebody who has played far more on console than on PC. On a PC, you can use the processing power for games and other things. The console is just a more restricted PC. In the future, all software and media will be freely available.

OP, either you are the cringe you despise, the newfag/moron/petite bougie/pick your denigration that doesn't understand how social/public goods like communities work, or this is a bait thread.

All consoles and all culture are united in the future through emulation. You may as well cringe that Agamemnon's accent is all wrong in modern Greek plays. Or that no one mentions the French Parliament under Louis XVI with respect anymore.

As for muh culture, your unwillingness to take the time to enlighten the 'morons' is the reward of sloth and apathy. Leisure now, persistent morons later. There was a time when you were the moron in Dark Souls, I promise you.

So I'm not an experienced game developer or anything, but I figured we should have a general dedicated to this sort of thing, especially since I'm interested to hear peoples' ideas on lefty-orientated videogames that would be cool for me to make.
I've been using Blender since I was 11 or 12 years old (I'm 20 now) so I'm pretty much at a level now where I can model any game asset I want. I'm also in school for Computer Engineering, and have been a hobby programmer since I was around 14 working with Python, C, and GLSL shaders, so I can script pretty much anything as well. I would say my main weaknesses when approaching a task like this are Sculpting, Spriting, and Painting, so to any drawfags/artfags with skills: I invite you to contribute on whatever projects we end up embarking on.

FREE, OPEN SOURCE, EASY SOFTWARE I RECOMMEND
