Will VR ever be affordable for the average gamer? Even the Quest 2 costs as much as a game console and they are trying to shove ads into them.

Let's keep using shooters as an example. In most shooters, you have a standing pose, a crouching pose and a prone pose. Some games have leaning to the side, some let you jump, but this is not always the case. In a VR game, you can perform all of these actions and more since your body is the only limit. Want to blindly spay while hiding on the side of a building? You can do that. Want to peek behind a crate without exposing your entire body? You can do that. The same possibilities the Wii opened up are expanded upon in VR. Think of it like a Wii, Kinect and 3DS glued into one console without the baggage of designing a game around traditional controller schemes too.

While less efficient for heavy workloads they have a far gentler learning curve with a newbie being able to learn open (or tilt) brush easier then GIMP with the UI able to be uninstructive for the way for the easy stuff and you are drawing 2D brush strokes in a 3D space so it is kinda of half way between a 2D program like GIMP and 3D like Blender. With NeosVR you are basically playing with a live watered down Unity dev world that is sandboxed inside Neos giving you real time feed back as you adjust values and create logical nodes that actually makes it easier to learn game devlopment. This also allows you to set up your workspace with ease as you just drag and drop windows where you want them in 3D space, and allows for better collaboration as other players can see your windows in 3D space if you give them permission.

As for how this translates to games well there is already experimentation in controlling cars in VR by moving your hands and feet (full tracking) and trying to make it as good as if you really had a wheel and peddle setup, the end result would be the full tracking being a highly flexible controller.


Given how things are progressing now, it's probably going to be pretty normal eventually. It's just that it's a complicated enough set of problems that the technology doesn't advance that quickly.

Why does Facebook's and Microsoft's "metaverse" look like crap next to VRChat and Neos?

Getting past this science takes a frustratingly long period of time because the new components add so much new tech that it’s freakishly agonizingly long for any factorio player. I just wanna get the fucking rocket and build a base that conquers the planet not spend half a fucking day dedicated to building more and more assemblers


Watch Nilaus' Factorio Master Class, he's one of the most experienced players out there and his videos are very informative.


I’m at purple and yellow science now with maxed out attack speed

I no longer feel any sort of accomplishment or satisfaction when slaughtering biters, only an abyss of meaninglessness and an urge to build a rocket off that stupid bug infested planet than dominate it

check for the 1.13 mod
is for Jagged Alliance 2
Jagged Alliance 1 should be good enough
but is more like something for the die hard fans to play, JA2 was the real deal tho
you can play vanilla too but i still recommend the 1.13 version because it fixes some of the vanilla implementations
and there's another mod which adds the maps from the Wildfire version of the game which was kind of an "expansion" or more like a "remake" of the maps themselves

This game does something to me, especially the world in the 2nd part. I downloaded a trainer that lets me set it permanently to night. I wish I could download some mod to deactivate the police but it seems to be a core mechanic. I just like walking around the city rooftops and imagining it is a socialist megacity in the future (until the cops come and I have to run away and my immersion breaks). Especially the richer parts of the city look beautiful. Gonna play it right now and listen to some Bladee in the background, just walking around doing nothing. /nightwalk/


>Gonna play it right now and listen to some Bladee in the background


Discworld has nothing to do with Mirror's Edge except maybe they are both pretty good in general.


Both contain liberalism flirting with socialism in their political analysis and a no nonsense review of fallible human behavior at all levels of society. Both also focus the player/reader's viewpoint of the world from the 'little people's' point of view without throwing their hands up in the air as to what is evil, how to spot it, and what can be done about it.

The 1992 movie 'Truckers' is also an unlikely but biting political commentary and well recommended despite it being aimed at 'children with adults in the room'.

Night Watch and Going Postal are also good if you want a focus on Revolution/Police or Deliveries/Social Media's affects on society.

If all you want is the cyberpunk aesthetic Shadowrun and 2077 got you covered.

I'm making this thread here, because the other boards are practically dead. If a mod chooses to move it to /hobby/, that's cool, I just wanted some exposure on /leftypol/.

As you might now, chess played a large role in the Soviet Union. They outright dominated the game for decades and it was commonly played ever since the inception of the union.

I think chess does possess the potential to develop and train the strategic thinking skills of players, if they abstract from the game and attempt to apply it to the real world.

But it's also a fun game. Because of that I made a /leftypol/ club on chess.com, which is a great website with a nice UI and plenty of resources to learn and improve at chess. I've been using it for months now and got far better at chess and I even do the puzzles on it for fun every day. The way the website is designed makes learning chess and improving really, really easy. Making an account is free and would be quick. I know this sounded like an ad, lol.

So, I'm inviting you comrades to start learning chess or improve whatever skill level you are at and join the /leftypol/ chess club. We could play against each other. Perhaps even organize tournaments. I think it would be really cool if we could get something like this going and make it the community wide hobby. If only 3 people join that would be good enough honestly.

post memes / decks / rants

pic related my meme deck [shaddoll angels]
spent like a year or so trying to get it into good synergy just to find out cyber angel effects don't hold up against modern decks
also benten got limited to 1 and so i haven't played since May
but i wanna try dramaturgia shaddolls looks like my kinda deck

What's ya'll thoughts on the current format?
9 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


pot of duality ?



we usually just played with pirated cards
there was no synergy because the cards were completely random but we had fun
if anything the rich kids were the ones having original cards but they would not play with us at all

probably because our cards had all the wrong effects but it still hurt, i always wanted to play for realz but i never could find where to buy real cards because you could only find randomr cards for sale in random packs that are usually kinda useless on their own unless you want a bunch of them for cheap to see if you get a generic thing or maybe find some cards for an interesting deck
without capitalism it'd be a lot more fun if it was like in the anime and videogames you get a starting deck and you win points (like social credit) to buy more cards depending on your performance and such
also yeah i wouldn't mind banlists not being because first of all it costs money
but 2nd of all a lot of times they just go banhappy without giving a shit if the card they banned cripples an already crippled deck.
which would suck a bit less if they didn't kept power creeping over forgotten decks like Cyber Angels and Prediction Princess



i got into the game finally because at a book fair i happened to have been saving some money to buy some rare books that i never found because book fairs now only sell trash and more fucking trash so i happened to find a stand selling packs on sale and i bought 2 starter packs so they could give me a christmas calendar with 25 more cards one for each day before christmas, and i just really liked the archetypes started playing with my brother him with an insects deck and me with a dinosaurs one
tho later on i wanted a deck more fitting to me and i kinda got a zombie one and a cyber dragon for my brother, had a lot of fun still, he's still looking for a deck he likes, i personally still like zombies a bit, Summoned Skull is fucking fun as hell and it recently got more support
though i got more into maining shaddolls and i wish i could play rituals but as of rn rituals are a fucking joke and it's pretty much the whole rich kids thing but on a bigger scale because the best way to get cards with "social credits" is by playing on tournaments, which means playing a competitive deck, which means playing the latest meta decks, which means you need to be able to throw away hundreds of dollars for the newest broken deck

and that's when scalpers sharkers and other scum comes around

Bejeweled 2 had some of the chillest beats I have ever heard in a puzzle game. Really fits the whole "space journey" theme.

It's "TG", as in "TGstation". It hasn't been /tg/ in a very, very long time.


i'm like 5 months clean
I want to take one hit, maybe just a nice few rounds as tr*der or atmos tech on a saturday. There's like a 40% chance I would relapse hard and fuck up my shit though.


SS14 actually seems to be coming along nicely. Will be nice to get away from the byond spaghetti code.


isn't that underaged euro c*der driving everyone away from the project?


I know personally one of the jannies on fulpstation before he became one,so we played there.
its alright,they're on an autistic crusade against the cat people because of muh ERP but other than that it's fine even if it's much more strict with the rules if you already know how to abuse the game,which I don't.
>SS14 or unity station
The playerbase will probably never move there,and especially not the admins in charge.

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.

It was only out for summer and Blizzard slacked off on releasing P2, which will come in 2 weeks now. Personally I srarted a few weeks back and already got my character some respectable gear for raiding, mostly because pre-raid items are possible to aquire while leveling and there are some good easy to get options out there. Also Karazahn is easy and there are pugs for Mag and Gruul, so the gear isn't that painful to get, only if you are really trying to get full bis.


AM i still good to start a character and get it to 70 in time to experience this expac?


Yes, just make sure to pick a populous realm so it wouldn't be a complete pain to find dungeon groups or pugs, as some smaller realms get kinda dead in between phases. T5 got released like a month+ ago, so there are 3 more phases (out of 5) waiting to be released. I'd say TBC still has 1.5-2 years left.


Is the private server scene still alive?


>EU Zandalar Tribe
Is that communist guild still around? If so, join it! Unless you're a member already.
