Take a good look at this fucking shit

They somehow not only managed to fuck to at building a game but because they’re working with Chinese corporate software of course the games not only a grind fest with recycled content from previous Diablo games but now you can get spied on on top of that

This games gotten banned in several countries
One for its microtransaction policy for featuring loot boxes which does fall under the same laws as gambling
Two for its nonexistent privacy
And three for on the grounds “dude you’d actually make this”

Dear god I can’t express how I feel without this garbage emote 🥴 but it really does express how I feel. I pray I get to see this shit blow into a full blown PR nightmare on par with warcrafts 3 reforged terrible release

By the way the game has 100 thousand dollars worth of P2W microtransactions in it

Yes they were never really “hardcore” in the true sense since their inception but cmon man, pathfinders to navigate the map, having a tutorial teach you what a special attack button is, enemies with HP and damage that makes them a breeze to kill, all on top of the fact that nearly everything in this game is recycled content while there’s dozens of thousands of dollars worth of microtransactions in the game tf, these people know POE is getting its own mobile port, not even a seperate game but a cross platform port to switch and mobile which will kill off this mediocre mess instantly.

If you want the best description of it

Imagine diablo 3 but now there’s even more P2W nonsense in it. That’s diablo immortal, don’t come here thinking that a cross platform game like this is gonna bear even the slightest resemblance to the first two games.

It’s so boring to the point where it’s impressive, you don’t do anything in it beyond mash buttons and watch shitty vfx play, that’s the entire fucking game, no skill, no difficulty, no real reason to use items that don’t immediately maximize dps and hp, no sense of satisfaction gained like when you got good loot in diablo 2 or the remastered version, amd definitely no fucking content either but a shitload of boosters, skins and other P2W garbage no one wants ugggh

Remember that Elder scrolls mobile game Bethesda showed off ages ago and how many people fucking despised it do to how fucking boring it was and how fucking laced with micro transactions before it was completely abondoned and forgotten about yeah that’s where this games headed and what’s worse is that they’re already talking about a “roadmap” as if this game is ever gonna be fun

I was kind of intending this thread to be a storehouse of replies for

<hurrr but who would work without profit motive???? you ever thought about that commie?


where fans have for one reason or another put in a great deal of time and effort to maintain or recreate digital experiences.

For example, I stumbled on some videos for a fan recreation of TIE fighter which, from the clips of it, looks really neat. It seems like video related is a mod based off of another mod for the million year old X-wing Alliance engine. I need to look further into it and see if it's built off of the original game, or its own standalone deal meant to mimic it.

Then there's also Tamriel Reborn that seems like it isn't just a remake of the original, but actually expands on the original Morrowind, I guess to add back in all of the content that had to be cut. Apparently they've been going at it since 2001.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKyrzZRo-O0

Then there's DOOM, which has just had an insane amount of work done on it and with it since it was released. It's actually pretty amazing to see what people are capable of doing with it after so long.

if you're into strategy games, check out 0ad, completely free open source rts similar to age of empires, also puts some extra efforts into trying to portray more accurate history. https://play0ad.com/

There's also open red alert, another open source project which you can somehow download with a lot of the original art without the people getting copyright issues, idk how they do it but I don't give a shit. it's also changed up the gameplay quite a bit to make the game better for competitive(the changes are definitely good thing, to the point where you might aswell just avoid paying for that crappy remake).

I feel like playing an XCOM style game, but I've already played basically every game in the genre. I'm considering Long War but the primary characteristic, long-ness, doesn't really appeal to me. Some of the changes seem fun though. The devs are making their own game Terra Invicta which looks cool, hopefully it's out soon.

Anyway, anyone got any ideas/thoughts?

What problematic or progressive things have you noticed in games?

I've been thinking about Morrowind. Morrowind is actually a surprisingly progressive game considering its age, with comparatively few restrictions on character creation, allowing you to create more or less whichever character you'd like without being pigeon holed by stereotypes or caught out by the developer's assumptions about what kind of person you are, but one small unfortunate element that has stood out to me for a while is that Ahnassi's questline is cut off if your character is a woman, which is a shame because it's a really good questline with some nice rewards and Ahnassi is a highly appealing character. There's no reason for this to be the case - opening it up would be a great way to make Morrowind more inclusive to players with sapphic characters. It's an odd decision because Bethesda clearly weren't afraid to include LGBTQ+ characters at the time, with Crassius Curio (a problematic figure, but one recognised as such in text) attracted to players of either gender.

In Morrowind you literally work for the glowies to assassinate an anti-imperialist leader leading a resistance against the local comprador regime so the Westoid empire can continue extracting rare resources (using local slave labor) via an exclusive imperial company contract.

This is after the ruling clique betrayed the previous anti-imperialist leader and tapped into the forbidden source of power within Red Mountain to gain absolute control, much like the Dengoids betrayed the revolution by becoming slaves to Capital.

Frontiers lacks enemies, just like most sonic fangame tech demos. And in the select-pick gameplay the physics fucked up already on the magnet section. Frontiers could be fun if it plays well, but all I see is a low-effort project that I could make myself. I don't see any brilliancy, creativity, or visual flair.

To be fair on the 'realistic' graphics. They kind of had to with the sonic movies to go in this direction. I would have preferred more color but I'll gladly run some color correction on my own.

Seriously. How long would it take a single person to create what's been shown in Sonic Frontiers? Where did they waste all their time on? It's just a bunch of rails in an empty field. Same with the pokemon games. It's all so empty.

>short answer
Creation engine and bethesdas laziness
<long answer the one you likely want

Bethesda games have terrible gunplay due to three major reasons. The limitations of the creation engine means bullet and collision physics aren’t accounted for during combat that well resulting in a level of inaccuracy during firefights that both breed a reliance on the deadeye mechanic and constant guesses where bullets should be vs where they’re present and how they affect a target. The poor animation laced in with even worse AI not only make the gunplay feel static but also boring and trivial. And finally the level design of each zone in these games encourage no sense of exploration, or variety in combat. We’ll see these flaws being realized first in how unrealistic the combat is and how it fundamentally affects everything else in game.

Because the physics and collisions within most Bethesda games is notoriously bad due to the creation engines limitations(it was developed from another engine used to make MMO games not single player RPGs so you can expect the reasons as to why it’s so awful) which frequently causes rag dolls moving and clipping through ingame assets, precision errors causing projectiles to load in places where they shouldn’t and the core design of the players arsenal fundamentally being subpar as the fault of Bethesda development directly all result in feelings of cartoonishness if not confusion as to how the guns of fallout are even supposed to work. Examples of this are in how snipers when scoped will block out the view of the players FOV when in real life there’s just a lense that zooms in on the target while everything else is visible, this causes a blinding effect where the player can’t use snipers in closed spaces regardless of how large as their vision gets clouded. another is how theirs very little if not no recoil or even sense of weight felt when firing guns like assault rifles or shotguns, this causes not only an imbalance in weapons that can confuse players as to how they’re supposed to work but also can make the player preform worse in combat due to not knowing when firing too much or too little is effective. How suppressors can sometimes prevent feelings of recoil felt altogether even though their real life purpose is simply to cover the sound of fire, further enhancing feelings of confusion over the mechanics of your arsenal.

IdTech and its derivatives does not really work great with open spaces bro, and Havok is a physics engine that is used in Creation Engine to begin with. What would really work for FO76 is something that is built to handle open spaces from the beginning, like Unreal Engine or CryEngine.

I’ll agree with you on cryEngine but for unreal I’ll have to stop you there
There’s a reason why unreal is called the jack of all skills type of engine and it’s because of you try to do anything specific with it your gonna encounter problems quick if you don’t have addons whom have their own types of problems. CryEngine or source yes those are legitimate candidates for what fallout games should’ve been built with or at least an add on for creation that applies similar features those engines have. I’m curious what bethesdas doing with creation 2

UE would still be a less of a shit engine for an MMOFPS than Creation even with its problems though. But yeah, CryEngine would the ideal pick.

It is an IdTech derivative if a distant one, and would some serious problems with loading a large map, namely loading time and lag due to the rendering engine being tailored to small-to-medium sized maps from the beginning. Just look at how Postal III turned out and you will see.

My emperor (Philotheos) who happened to be standing outside Constantinople when an earthquake hit died. I imagine his bodyguard carried him to one of his many palace's to avoid the sweltering heat when the massive quake occured and buried them all. He was actually a regent as the previous Komnenos ruler had no kids and adopted him like a year before he died. The throne has passed onto (Avramios) who is the brother of the guy who adopted my recently dead emperor and is descended from (Alexis Kommeneos). Avramios has no kids and has adopted 4 sons he is an old man (68) and does not have long left his chosen heir is (Ignatios) the strategos or Caesarea which is a fortress protecting against Muslims raids and would be conquers. Not pictured is (Herakleionas the Bastard) of the (Vryennios) line who has also had no kids and has 4 adopted sons… Herakleionas is the strategos of Thessaloniki and he is an illegitimate son of (Nikiphoros Vryennios) and (Anna Kommeneos) he is also a patron of the arts having his own bard as a companion (raising moral and popularity). The Roman empire is hard pressed by the Muslims of the Fatimids who are constantly attacking our walls at (Iconion) and (Caesarea) may they hold out. Recently in the west emperor Philotheos and general Avramios have taken Sofia, Targoviste, and Baia from the Cuman barbarians. Only Sofia was spared from the sacking as many pagans were put to lord Christ's sword in Targoviste and Baia as shown in this drawing.

>and uses the bourgeois state's monopoly on force to enforce.
Commodity production is when the state artificially limits supply to drive prices above market exchange value ?
I know monopoly capitalism is a stage of capitalism, but monopolies aren't engaged in commodity production, they just extract monopoly-rent from the rest of the economy. That's all this is.
