Albion (from Fable series) vs Tamriel (from Elder Scrolls series) vs Thedas (from Dragon Age series).

A 1x1 tricontinental war among them, which one would win? I think Albion would utterly crush both due to massive superior tech, magic in Fable series seems to be much more powerful too

Gotta be honest, it's so long since I played any of those games I can't really answer you

Albion is more united than Tamriel.

If this was of existential dread were to play out, the telvanni mages would be forced to delve deeper into the dwemer ruins and solve the mystery of the disappearing race.

assuming the Aedra and Daedra are a factor, Tamriel easily. the Aedra will bat for the home team and the Daedra would love releasing yet-unseen horrors onto all of these new lands from demonic beasties to magical diseases that these lands have no defense against. and thats before assuming some prophesy boy comes along and reactivates the Brass God or something ridiculous, on the day to day Tamriel would be pretty weak but when they go up to bat they go fucking hard.

Can we talk about how video games like Age of Empires/Civilisation etc are conduits to right wing thought about political economy of globalisation?

Simply, they portray human society and civilisations as inherently atomised and singular in their development as well as presenting culture as essentialist.


Also, an anon posted an academic article related to this recently, but I've lost it, if anyone could repost that would be great.

 No.9388

Idk bout AoE but Civilization is far from essentialist. In Civilization all nations have 1 or 2 bonuses but other than that they can do anything that other nations do. It can't really be classified as essentially given that 99% of gameplay is interchangeable. Memes such as Ghandi launching nukes shows that players know it's a silly game.

 No.9390

>>9388
Agreed, if anything Civilization will spawn each civilization near terrain that benefits its unique bonuses, in other words, you could interpret the bonuses arising from people adapting to the local environment. Civ infact, has a crude historical materialist outlook. The fact that people might interpret the game as essentializing human civilizations is more caused by the dominance of idealism in popular culture.

 No.9391

>>9359
>Civilisation

Actually no, Civ is kinda materialistic despite minor bonuses civs get, the success of a Civ is 90% based on external/material factors

An essentialist game is actually EU4

 No.9396

if I remember correctly it used to be clowned on but the existence of "Barbarians" in Civ (although possibly recently removed? I stopped playing after 5) is pretty essentialist. a group of people who fundamentally, cannot be civilized, even though they operate like a civilization, in some games outright equivocated with wolves.

 No.9397

>>9396
I don't know what civ you played but in VI they form city-states after awhile

>Shadowrun is a cyberpunk visual novel role-playing video game for the Sega Mega-CD adapted from the Japanese version of the pen and paper RPG Shadowrun by FASA (which was created by Group SNE). It was developed by Japanese company Compile and released on February 23, 1996 in Japan only as both the last Mega-CD game released in Japan and the last game released anywhere on the Mega-CD/Sega CD.
Is there an English (fan)translation for this somewhere?

There is one that's dead at barely 20% of the game because they got C&D by who knows who.

Sorry for the dichotomy but Shadowrun >>> Cyberpunk tbh

 No.9560

>>9556
tbh cyberpunk as style over substance seems, to me, the most valid form of cyberpunk.
try to meld the DIY-ness of punk to technology and you're either going to get free software movement stuff, which is lovely but more legalistic and geeky than usually comes to mind for punk - but take away that geeky legalism and you're left with bootlicking cunts who's main contribution to software is to let corporations use their code.

when you go broader than that, into what sort of ideas are generally conjured up by cyberpunk, you just wind up with "our current tech dystopia but aesthetically pleasing and where your pointless life has at least some narrative purpose", which is by definition style over substance rather than any sort of actual punk movement.

You don't know how smart these guys are man it's something as simple as installing a cheat engine on their cell phone and plugging it into the usb drive for 1 second and then unplugging it. People are paying thousands of dollars to compsci devs to make them custom cheats so they can go undetected it's insane (my friend literally made money custom making cheats for CS).

These assholes ruined an entire game and Valve does nothing about it.

CSGO more like Counter-Cheats: Global Aimbots

Valve was content to see TF2 ravaged by cheats and later as they saw what juicy cake Overwatch ad taken from them…
They relaunched TF2 without spectator mode for "competitive reasons", didn't they?

I'm more worried about things like a company rigging the game to condition players or extract microtransactions TBH

 No.9176

>>9165
They shouldn't be able to bring a phone in either. Look I get your point but I'm saying, these big tourneys are making hundreds of thousands of dollars. If they really wanted to stop the cheating they have the resources to try harder.

Just email yourself your program (why would you use anticheat on a lan computer? muh fps!) and delete all the evidence

in my opinion, these big tournament organizers are all corrupt in one way or another, be it in collaborating with or allowing cheating, or sucking the players dry
