I think the research labs are supposed to be more dangerous to loot than they're depicted in-game and the schematics themselves should be pretty much impossible to decipher without specialized knowledge, but tech hunters and machinists have made progress in things like hydroponics. The world is so dangerous and inhospitable that it's difficult to support large, interconnected populations and research centers, so it wouldn't surprise me that information sharing and innovation is limited. The one thing that bothers me is apparently no one knows how explosives work and are instead using high-tech machinery to make really sharp swords.
Also the ancients were wiped out (or left) a few thousand years ago, in the wake of that civilization's collapse the world was left scarred and dangerously polluted. When the skeletons tried to fix things they made initial progress, even setting up their own research and engineering centers, but eventually they got fucked by multiple overlapping cataclysms (like whatever created the Grid) outside of their control and things started unraveling quickly. Initially there was a resource shortage leading to the Mk-II skeleton body, and rebellions started soon after.
They may have created the cannibals in a lab to deal with the Deadcat rebels, and some disaster (?) created the canyon in Wend that flooded the skeleton manufacturing centers and put a complete stop to their production and essentially doomed their kind, as they didn't have the technology to create CPU units on their own and relied on ancient labs to do so. After the fall of that empire the world was left even more dangerous and even more polluted. There's also the fact that a couple skeletons are working diligently to ensure some of the information about the past, and possibly its technology, stays lost. There's a lot of suspicion around skeletons and technology in general, and the Holy Nation is dedicated to making sure that information is destroyed as well.


Basically it goes like this.
>First empire / Ancients.
Space fairing tier civilisation that collapsed for hazy reasons, we don't know exactly why, maybe a bronze age collapse on a universal scale, skeleton rebellion or some convergence of all the head-canons the fandom has come up with - We don't even know that the world of 'Kenshi' was the capital planet of this empire, it could have just been some periphery penal colony or some shit.
**My headcanon has always been that potentially after Obedience and the Skeletons on 'Kenshi' revolted whatever galactic empire Kenshi was part of declared some sort of 'quarantine' (think the way systems with [REDACTED] presence is treated if your a fan of starsector - Anything trying to get off world is detected by some sort of autonomous weapons system like the eye and gets blown the fuck out of the sky, thus why there's so much industrial / ship wreckage all around the planets surface - This galatic
>First Interregnum
After shit collapsed everything was absolutely tits up for a while - this is never really expanded upon
>Second Empire.
Cat-Lon and his skeleton army unify most the continent asides from the shek cities and the hives, Cat-Lon is pretty cool for a while and the population began growing again, Labs were re-established 'Pretty good!'
But then a combination of crisis's like the 'Northern humans turning to cannibalism' among other things made Lon act more and more like a DICKtator until whoever Okran actually was led an uprising, taking over 'Okran's pride' (One of the most fertile places on the continent, with accessible fresh water) - Effectively shattering the empire, Cat-Lon essentially runs away to the Ashlands to go insane and whatever territory was still held by the 'empire' was reorganised into the 'united cities' with its system of local nobility / feudalism with puppet emperor's
>Second interregnum
Modern day.


Kenshi (as in the planet you play on) was almost certainly a periphery world in the ancient space-empire, otherwise there would likely be many more relics of that age other than stuff like the Eye, the busted (nuclear?) generators in the eastern desert, and the shards of I-frames from skyscrapers you can find in parts of the desert, so on.

Plus Stobe's sacrifice was against the 1st Empire trying to destroy the planet for unknown reasons (maybe some kind of degenerative plague, which eventually made all of the northern human tribes into feral cannibals) on top of the Eye satellites which were put in orbit to basically scourge all life from the planet but failed, hence why large chunks of the continent are just desert and the sea level fell - the Swamps were originally a massive port city, according to a Skeleton.

As such you can presume that the continent Kenshi takes place on has grown across the years as the Eyes kept working their heat-ray magic and evaporating more of the water, making a decent chunk of the Atlantaeuropa hellscape deserts which the UC lives on come into being, which explains why so much of it is just dead and can't grow anything - shit is literally salt-sands.

Also since the 1st Empire was so hilariously advanced, its pretty likely that a lot of the most powerful tech was far beyond the reach of common people, and simpler, easier to recreate tech like firearms had simply ceased to exist because they were so ineffective compared to the death lasers they were using. Advanced bionics made melee weapons viable again, Metal Gear Rising style, which is why you have the super-advanced Meitou weapons lying around as well. There are probably so few due to the 1st Empire taking a lot of their shit with them when they left the planet, so there is really only scraps to work with for rebuilding civilization. Even the 2nd Empire realized this - with the means of making new skeletons lost, and loads of skeletons committing mass suicide after the [REDACTED], they knew they were a dying race and tried to use the remaining technology to create new races to inherit the functions of the Empire after they fell - hence the Shek to act as legal enforces, and the Hivers to act as producers for goods and materials (this is more specuPost too long.

wish i could play the game but i only have a shitty laptop


I also have it installed on a shitty Acer Laptop i used to use for skool stuff, And asides from loading in between regions taking a bit longer then seems the average it seems to get along fine.
If i turned it up to Max graphics or installed a bunch of graphics / other mods it would probably absolutely brick though


>the maps were larger
This might be shocking to some of you but RPGs used to have maps a lot larger than they’re today, part of it was the lack of limitations imposed with using sprites rather than actual polygons to build worlds and account for physics led to minimal problems with precision and collision errors but most of it was, well it’s easier to paint something than it is to model build rig or apply physics to it, coincidentally this meant quests were also large and had cryptic as shit descriptions at times making the amount of time you played these games really fucking long but you’d put up with it because you likely didn’t have that much shit to do if you were playing games back then when barely anyone had computers beyond the ones they’d use at work

I feel like you nede to be a boomer to appreciate it though. as someone that only played fallout 2 after Fo4, while I like the old graphics, the game is just too clunky. I havent played point and click adventure games since Pajama Sam and other Fisher Price games


Normally I would be supportive of these types of games but fallout 2 fucking killed any enjoyment I had for boomer RPGs, the reason
RNG bs attached to fucking everything
The games feel like slot machines the moment you enter in any form of combat or interaction required for in game progression. Got so annoying I uninstalled the fucking game less than an hour in after dying twice to RNG and then getting one tapped by the tutorial boss

So fucking annoying


*older games were noticeably less cluttered
Fuck I hate phoneposting.


CRPG's trying to imitate TTRPG's was a dark age



what CRPG exists that doesn't try to imitate a TTRPG? isn't that basically all the genre is

I don't see many people talking about this series although it's beyond based. They're not explicitly leftist necessarily (aside maybe from Peace Walker) but tackle some pretty based themes all around, especially Sons of Liberty imo

okay chucklenuts


So basically a TL;DR of this series based on what I remember from every instalment I've played.
>Metal Gear
Relatively simple, Solid Snake goes into the fortress and defeats the bad guys, and he seemingly kills big boss When you get to MGS5 it turns out it was actually your body-double PC
>Metal Gear 2
Solid Snake goes to a different fortress and """""kills"""""" the actual ??? big boss
It gets revealed that before Big Boss went off to go be a terrorist / Bond villian or whatever he's implied to be in MG1 and 2 they made two supersoldiers based off of him, obviously Snake and Liquid, Liquid takes over an Island and demands a bunch of shit including Big Boss's body Which we figure out in MGS4 they could not have given to him anyway or he's going to fire a nuke at the Illuminati - Snake gets shanghaied by the army into stopping him but obviously at the end of the game its revealed that the Army/Illuminati injected him with some crazy killer virus + they try to blow up the base with Snake, Meryle and Otacon still inside instead of letting Snake go like they promised.
Snake breaks onto a boat to leak photo's of a new US army 'Anti-metal gear' weapon, Because apparently Liquid had a dead man switch which released the MG schematics online after he died - Ocelot Who we get gaslight the rest of the game into thinking is being mind-controlled by Liquids arm, He's really just acting steals it

(Okay this is where it gets annoying)
Raiden breaks into the Big-Shell, because he thinks he's a government agent sent to take it back from terrorists. Really…The ENTIRE scenario was socially-engineered to happen by the Arsenal A.I to test the illuminati's new super-soldier training and brainwashing techniques, and Solidus is introduced - Another 'brother' of Snake and Liquid created by the original supersoldier program (Who was also apparently the fucking President at one point???) whose plan is sorta similar to Liquids, He's going to take Arsenal gear, All the Anti-Metal Gear weapons aboard arsenal gear and the nukes on board - And use it to take over NYC and hold the illuminati hostage, And also Solidus Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Young Big-Boss named 'Naked Snake' has to go and blow up the OG metal-gear in the USSR, But the real crux of the game is how Zero (Who goes on to more or less become the leader of the Illuminati) actually wants Snake to make sure that the Philosophers treasure, A massive black-budget of bearer bonds, makes its way back to America for him to use, Ocelot (who was revealed to also be a US agent) manages to get half the treasure on microfilm back to America, but Eva steals half of it and dips to China.

>Portable ops

Never played.

>Peace Walker.

After getting fed up with Zero and finding out they used his coom to make supersoldiers Big Boss fucks off to South-America and becomes a mercenary, the actual story asides from being a set up for MGS5 is sorta self contained, mostly just Big-Boss crying over 'The Boss' while blowing up mechas.


O.K so basically.
Zero (Who was basically the guy in charge of the Illuminati) wanted to create 'World peace' which to him was represented by like global American unipolar hegemony, So he eventually creates the A.I's because skullface fucked him up with the nerve agent and he was gonna be comatose soon and didn't trust any of his yes men (the Illuminati list that snake recovered in MGS2) to run shit after he died.
But due to the 'War-Economy' and the fundamental reliance the global economy gained on armed conflict, The A.I found itself in a situation like A.M's Id from I have no mouth essentially, It was designed by Zero to bring 'World Peace' but because the US economy (Whose directive asks it to oversee and preserve) is now dependent on war to such an extent, to stabilize society it MUST cause more war.

Does anyone play this game or wow classic? I used to play quite a bit of classic, TBC, WOTLK and early cataclysm. TBH i consider the first three expansion packs unbeatable in their quality, esp. Vanilla and TBC. WOTLK was also the height of Arena pvp.

I don't think bu-blizzard could ever recreate something on this level. Classic Blizz (90s->2007/8) was an AWESOME time. Activision merger started to take its toll around the time Cata rolled out. Even WOTLK though having tons of oldfag devs etc. it still began to show a few signs of this, though arena pvp was at it peak and beast. Raiding was good, but already you saw the cycle of "running out of ideas", with them updating naxxramas. Cataclysm was supposed to be a reinvention of classic wow which is why they redid a bunch of classic zones including Orgrimmar.

I feel like after this period Blizz started to succumb to the same late-capitalist bullshit of hollywood where every single movie is a reboot. Every game nu-Blizz/activision-blizz made after that just seemed like a shitty recycle of previous ideas (ex: Heroes of the storm - lets make a moba like 6 years after they were hot and make all the characters in there from our other games or shitty generic). Even overwatch wasn't as original as people think, the characters felt like shitty incredibles/disneyfied versions of archetypical charcters.

The mechanics/graphics of wow have gotten better but the balance and storyline have become shitty. This isn't an inditement of the programmers or technical artists but more the corporate leadership and creative direction.

Blizzard knows that after all these years, their biggest audience are moonguard coomers and furries. Unfortunately, they're also stuck in the purgatory of a 13+ rating, so they can't let you wear see-through bra armor or dick size sliders for character creation.
Overwatch was made for waifu fans too.



sadly that's all it is, there's nothing else to do


So, as you all know, I play a Shaman. I'm currently the best geared Shaman in the world and I have multiple world DPS records on WowMeterOnline. So I go into this Battleground because I feel like gracing my battlegroup with my presence, right? Everyone is cheering as I enter. They don't bother putting down a mage table or healthstone because they know that they're not going to need it–I, the Darkness, has come.

So I cast Lightning Shield on myself, because that's what Shamans do. They call down MOTES OF ELECTRICITY FROM THE HEAVENS and they SURROUND THEMSELVES with DEADLY AMOUNTS OF LIGHTNING! All of my teammates are instantly electrocuted to death, but me? I merely bathe in the energy; it is my plaything. Even though my teammates are now charred corpses, they continue to cheer, because they know that I can solo this. The gates open. I run in. With Ghost Wolf, my movement speed is increased by


Horde sees me run by but they can't do anything about it because I'm a ghost and I'm wolfing at


a Blood Elf Paladin with Crusader Aura on bubbles and flees in terror when he sees me traveling at


They can hear the howl of my ghost wolf. They are all cowering–no, literally, they type the /cower emote and just stand there–as I cap the Stables. I cast WATERWALKING on myself–WATERWALKING, like Jesus, and I careen towards the Blacksmith. The Horde there see me coming and they just /afk the [email protected]#$ out. I put down my totems before I start capping Blacksmith's flag. A Rogue tries to sap me–

MMOs in general are so fucking boring these days

I feel completely drained just entering them. Not because they’re bad games but because there’s nothing in them once you finish your first play through
All the endgame content in them is instanced meaning you can’t farm old dailies and weekly quests
All the fun rpg mechanics you’d expect from these types of games like the lack of quest finders, paragraphs worth of quest notes your expected to read, lack of linearity in progression and story telling, large maps, equipment durability and gear requirements all are taken out
Not because it’s “too hardcore”(quite the opposite casuals love this type of shit) but because the whales that blow money on these games wanna make sure anything that can potentially put ordinary players against them is neutralized. Fucking obnoxious shot dude makes these games feel static and unfun

Multiplayer games can be really fun and great as long as there are people playing them. Most people play games like Fortnite, CS:GO, Battlefield or Call of Duty Call of Glowie, but I think there are some underrated gems that could be great if more people were playing them, whether it's an old game that isn't supported by the developpers anymore or a more recent but niche game.

I believe this is a problem multiplayer-only games have. If the game isn't popular enough, it will quickly fade into obscurity regardless of how good it actually is. Furthermore, under capitalism, whoever can spend loads of money on advertising can easily get a larger playerbase. I also don't know if socialism could give more exposure to obscure games.

So how would you remedy to this issue? Any examples of games of that kind coming to your mind?

I liked Primal Carnage


>game has no single player mode


world war 2 online, supposed to be a game where 1000 of people can take part in a battle but it's empty as shit


The original Ace of Spades, now better known as build and shoot. One of the best competitive FPS games I have ever played, but now it is pretty dead most of the time ;_;


Complainers of it say it’s
“Unfun to play against”
But then we’ll it’s not impossible to avoid just don’t run in the same place over and over again and you won’t get shot. Also most people that get killed by campers often run and gun without thinking at all in advance about where players are hiding or where they’ll emerge, the devs design these shooters with loads of corners and easy spots to take cover and camp in use them to your advantage than run blindly into someone’s line of fire.

i mean the fact that they are killing enemy players means less enemy players against your team.


Killcams in TF2 are meant to prevent camping.


Bad maps also lead to camping and the best antidote is fucking communicating with your team.


That’s not the issue

Maps in arena shooters are built to be camped on as camping revolves around taking cover and staying in positions that are walled off to prevent you from getting shot at in several directions, it’s even better when there’s verticality involved. The issue is designing a game where camping isn’t just encouraged but a vital mechanic like in csgo where understanding the layout of the map and using it to your advantage feels satisfying rather than annoying to put up with like in mw19



I love playing as sniper in heroes and general, the whole point of it is just finding a good hiding spot and shooting enemies from a distance when they have no clue were you, it's fun af.

The Witcher games weren't bad


yeah they're definitely better than bethesda, all of bethesda's games are garbage while the witcher games at worst are merely mediocre that's my opinion tho people seem to really like them


an unusually salty post from you socdemanon, hating fallout is a bit contrarian. it may not have held up amazingly well by modern standards but it isn't a modern game. when we were kids, it was the balls.

The games are wacky I love it and hate it

That’s genuinely the most genuine thing I can say about fallout. It’s wacky, the story is fucking weird not because of Bethesda it was always strange but my god playing the games in 3d amplifies the wackiness to a new degree. Fallout 3 sees you destroy Washington under a fucking robots command while new Vegas sees you nuke the state of California for no fucking reason or destroy it again under a robots command. The meta is fucking confusing, like they probably should’ve nerfed bartering and carry weight because holy fuck they do not affect gameplay at all to the level where being at or above level 30 actually matters. Either way I genuinely don’t think I’ll ever have as much fun or play something that makes me feel the same way as those two games


You mfs always talking about fallout here. You are gonna make me play it in the end.


It's fun but it also requires you to be a bit autistic about modding lol.


Did either game stand out as being better in ur opinion?


That’s a really vague question as each of the main 5 games have different appeal ignoring fallout tactics and 76

Fallout 1 you’d play for nostalgia and wanting a down to classical RPG experience
Fallout 2 if your like me and hate seeing the sun
Fallout 3 if you simultaneously want the RPG feel of fallout 1 but also want to play in 3d with a level of cinematic effect
Fallout NV if you’ve already played fallout 3 and wanna play another game like it
Fallout 4 if you hated the gameplay of 3 and NV and thought some aspects of it like radiation wasn’t harsh enough

I didn't realise they also reworked the Far-Eastern Collapse.
If Kerensky fucks up the Manchu's still take over the West, Republicans run off to Transamur and Vladivostok and then either become one of two different flavours of authdem, Ukrops spawn in the north, but can either be SocDem or Banderites who are now properly set to reactionary.
Harbin proper gets to keep some of the south now, Its either led by Gastev who calms down his autism a bit and becomes PopSoc

>>20930 (me)
in the bad news for exemple,they basically lost any gfx work made since the last update,because nobody decided to download it or put in in a mega or anywhere else.


Having a good Kavkaz Society / Transcaucasia game in RF feels like it hinges SO SOOO much on other countries RNG. (And yes 'Git gud' i know).

If the South-Eastern-Union gets the Russian-Nationalists in charge, Black-Hundreds hold Siberia Or if Dutov survives - You might as well just restart.

When i finally finished my Mayakovsky game and got the Republic of Labour and Valour it did feel mighty cathartic though, haven't gone back to play Eurasia guy and khlebnikov yet.


Just use the path choice feature in settings lmao


Let me guess, You taking 50% attrition on all your units and 6 months to beat Kornilov in the Steppes or marching into the Siberia in winter while Moscow/Petrograd gets stronger and stronger and eventually dw on you?

My meta sorta goes like this.
>Speedrun down to the foci that gives you 5k guns to get you started on building some units, then take the first military decision to get some gun factories and the second army foci that gives you doctrine research speed boosts
>Take Armenia+NorthAzerbaijian
>Use some Armenian guns to add a battalion to your infantry, everything else into more units
>As soon as all the new units drop dw on South-East-Union
>As soon as you beat South-East Union, One more battalion, even more units
>Complete the army tree down to the focus that gives you a 50% non-core manpower bonus + Any other focus's that give shit like Division speed / Organisation / Attack-Defence / reinforce rt' to your units (I think Mirsky gives you a whopping 30% div speed and reinforce rate, Mayakovsky gives you like 20% org 5% atk 5% def, Khlebnikov gives you something really shit iirc like division attrition %)
>Declare war on Moscow/Petrograd, their army is absolute dogshit half made up of 3 battalion horse cavalry until later in the game, encircle encircle encircle,
After you beat Moscow/Petrograd you should have more then enough Army exp to basically finish either people's army or deep battle - Just spam out 30 widths + Support and walk into everyone in else Russia's VP's

I'd argue Kavkaz actually tends to become boring after you beat Kolchak/Glasses tbh


Haven't played HoI4 in half a year and I want to install the mods. Obviously I pirate this shit, but it now appears that the old mod downloader websites no longer work without a real steam account that has the game bought. Is there any workaround for this?
