Is this game about late-stage capitalism? Or does that matter?

They call her a bounty hunter but how often does she hunt bounties? It seems more often she's following missions given by the Galactic Federation.

Saving Dachola and Etecoons is rather surprising when you think about it. No concern for the other inhabitants of Zebes, Samus?

&ltWriters for Lovestruck, a mobile game produced by Voltage Entertainment USA, have won an average 78 per cent pay increase and greater transparency at work after a ground-breaking 21-day strike. It is the first successful game worker strike in the history of the game development industry.

I'm guessing it's probably because it's a niche within a niche within a niche, so the company is relatively small.

#Voices4Devs: Voice Actors Give Online Support for Game Unionization
>April 12, 2019

>As more people working in video games try to form their own union, they’ve recently gotten another burst of online support. Apparently starting on April 2, voice actors united under the #Voices4Devs hashtag on Twitter to call attention to the developers they work with on games.

>A wide variety of voice actors from AAA titles and indies have joined in[…]
>Game Workers Unite, a key organization dedicated to the unionization movement, and others in the game development community have responded positively to the show of online support from voice actors[…]
>SAG-AFTRA, whom Game Workers Unite appropriately mentioned as an influence, is the acting community’s union.
>SAG-AFTRA is also a member of AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in America, and who shared a public statement with Kotaku that expressed support for game developers and their efforts to unionize in February.
>Seeing voice actors give online support for game unionization might remind people of another time they took an even more active stand in the game industry. According to NPR, voice actors under SAG-AFTRA—including the prolific Jennifer Hale, whose roles include Mass Effect‘s female Commander Shepard—refused to work with many AAA game companies, going on a strike that started in 2016 and ended in 2017.

Here's a video on video game unionization made 3 years ago. I think its still relevant as it gives a pretty good recap of unionization efforts in the games industry.

In April I intend to run a turn-based, text-based simulation of the world of 1945 in which participants join as join as countries, parties, guerrillas, individuals, or most any other position they can think of.

Here's a link to the thread where people can join and find the rules on how to play: http://eregime.org/index.php?showtopic=17895

A bunch of participants already come from this site so I figure I'd mention the game here. If there's any questions, feel free to ask.

Nukes in 1945 won't be powerful enough to turn the world into an apocalyptic wasteland, so no.

All the persons reserved as superpowers seem pretty competent (although we have an opening for Chiang Kai-shek.)

Yeah I get that "nuke" can refer to different things or be used interchangeably. Just saying, all the debated consequences of nuclear war discussed during the 1950s-80s (Mutually Assured Destruction, Nuclear Winter, radiation all over the place, etc.) clearly can't happen with the technology available in the late 1940s, so there wouldn't really be a basis for me to say "okay guys I'm not simulating something approximating a post-apocalyptic world, game over."

Can this be Series become iconic?

I really enjoyed the Story and although the Open World Mechanics were really not perfect, I think Sucker Punch did good for their first major Game as a Studio.

Also the Cinematic Elements of this game are just kino. The game let's you choose to play in Kurosawa Mode if you want, so we already know who this Game is partially dedicated to

Sounds neat. Most fantasy tends to sit in the medieval tech level though, so not a lot of systems would fit.

True, also in my experience players like to do rebellious or revolutionary shit in roleplaying games for some reason.

These two issues have been fixed:
- Corrected names of end markers for winning and losing animations.
- Added a bone for fingers on the right hand and animated a fist curl.
The rigging of the fingers is very dodgy but you're never close enough to notice.
