Something I really respect about this game is that it makes the player squeeze absolutely every little bit of advantage out of its mechanics not just to master the game, but to beat the game at all. From the fact that changing ship speeds damages enemies from your ship exhaust, to contact damage from your gun pods, and even to crashing your ship into large enemies for massive damage at the cost of a power-up because they can't be defeated fast enough any other way, every little bit of mastery of this game's mechanics is required to successfully defeat its brutal second loop and win the game. A lot of games have massive depth that rewards advanced players, but very few of them require diving deep in order to win because the stage design requires it. Are there any other games that do this?

Just played the first 30 mins or so, I guess I made my own bed by buying this game as one of apparently the few people that liked 'action Resident Evil', which this is I guess a repudiation of, but it's the most hackneyed cliche shit. Wandering around a boring shithole at a snail's pace with random noises that you know won't mean anything, seeing generic gross/creepy things, then characters disappearing into nothingness the second you look away at a speed that you KNOW is impossible and is just utter cliche horror shit, everything is paint by the numbers utterly. And yeah, 'it's scary', I guess so, but I also expected a game, not just the game equivalent of a trashy horror flick. Clearly I shouldn't have bought this game but I feel I was misled by the hordes of people saying how amazing this is.

What more do you want from RE? The whole game is about suspense which I thought the game pulls off masterfully. I think the voice acting is corny, but, fitting. RE1 was extremely corny. It's not just the jumpscares but the whole ambience of an RE game is about building suspense. You probably went into the game with this shitty attitude and here you are. I thought the game was wonderful and much better than the faggotry that was everything after re4

yeah the beginning of the game is shit. once you get past the second boss it becomes fun though.

Dreadfully bad. Mind-numbingly bad.

Fallout is unironically a game for old millennials who no longer have the fast-twitch muscle and rapid hand-eye coordination of their youth, who are embarrassed to play video games in front of their 10 to 14 year old kids.

Falout is for the most casual of casual gamer. Fallout is literally the "Participation Trophy" of video games. Bethesda should rebrand it: "Fallout: The Safe Space… For the Aging Millennial"

>Fallout gameplay summary:

Time to mount my power armor, and now I'm just going to mosey on over to there. And then I'm just going to mosey on over to there. And now, oh, howdy folks, don't mind me, I'm just going to mosey on over to there. Yikes, a quest! Time to do some grinding. Ahh, would you look at that wonderful landscape. Welp, armor up, it's time to mosey on over to there.

>you gais, Fallout is like Elder Scrolls with guns


Stop with that nonsense. At least be honest. Fallout is like all the excitement and energy of bingo night at the senior center. And this game isn't even a game. It is a movie occasionally interrupted by brief grinding to act like a sight-seeing simulator.

Are you implying that for a typical 3D game with strong emphasis on aiming precision and timing, a keyboard where directional input is typically formed by four binary inputs on two axes (total 8 directions), is more appropriate than a controller where the same directional input is formed by non-binary joysticks?

One of PC's inputs may indeed be digital, but mouse control is in general so much more precise and accurate for camera control that it overcomes all the advantages of two analog sticks.

A game music thread with a twist. It occurs to me that I don't encounter music like this too often in games, but it's really cool when it's done well. Looking for vidya music that creates a sense of dread and uneasiness, that stresses the player out and adds to the tenseness of a particular level or area in which it plays.

Yooka the chameleon and Laylee the bat are sunbathing and enjoying life's simple pleasures when their pristine afternoon is ruined by the capitalist expropriation of the One Book - a tome which contains the power to write history. It is expropriated from Yooka and Laylee by Dr Quack, the right hand man of the game's antagonist bourgeois bee, Capital B. This sets into motion the story that will lead Yooka and Laylee, who represent the peasants and workers respectively, to attempt to topple Capital B(ourgoisie).

The capitalist expropriation of their book leads our proletarian heroes to leave their pirate-ship home in search of their class enemy. The pirate ship suggests an unrealized anticapitalist conciousness in our heroes that exists before they are given the revolutionary impetus at the game's beginning. As our heroes approach the enemy's lair, Hivory Towers, they are exposed to the incredible environmental destruction caused by capital B in the search of profits. The entire landscape is covered in toxic waste. A result of the subordination of scientists like Dr. Quack to the will of the bourgeoisie.

Unlike most collect-a-thon games, Yooka Laylee does not feature coins or other capitalist fetishes as collectables. Instead, our heroes collect writing quills and pages - useful articles which represent the accumulation of knowledge and revolutionary theory by the proletariat to make possible their ultimate conflict with the bourgeoisie. The expansion of Yooka and Laylee's knowledge is greatly assisted by the strategic alliance with Trowzer Snake, who represents the petty bourgeoisie and it's historical origin in patriarchal property relations.

The symbolism in this game goes down to the details. For example, the 'corplet security' sentinal robot enemy is modled after Microsoft's Kinect camera. The studio that produced yooka laylee is staffed by former employees of Rare games, which was purchased by microsoft and forced to produce Kinect shovelware games, instead of artistically valuable ones.

Over all, I reccomend this game to all proletarian gamers.

Not a thread about a specific game as such but more a general concept - After Action Reports don't have a definite origin but they were popularized heavily by turn-based grand strategy games like the old Total War games, Civilization, some RTS games like Command and Conquer, and many tabletop games like Warhammer 40k.

The general premise is that you take the game session you played and turn it into a narrative experience meant to be read by people who hadn't experienced the campaign - stylized like a military document of sorts meant to relay the events during towards higher ups. However for this thread I think the definition should be expanded a bit to more encompass just any narrative retelling of a game experience, either single or multi-parted for any game that you think can manage it.

Agent Karl Survival Diary: Night #XX0

I went to loot a gas station known as the bone yard. As I walked in the hotel in search of food and supplies. I saw a graffiti saying "You're are in red territory". I stepped into the hotel. Slowly making my way in, so not alert anyone. As I searched through the rooms of the hotel, I saw a dead scavenger's corpse that is still warm. Someone killed him and they are not far away. I made my way through the dark alleyways of the hotel fighting mutated humans that throw acidic secretions, and mutated hounds.

After scavenging the whole hotel I decided to leave it and see if the restaurant still got some food in it. I jumped from the window of the hotel. Unfortunately there was a group of mutants guarding the front of the restaurant. After a nearing death several times, I finally made my way to the restaurant. It was mostly empty. I found two dead soldiers in the restaurant and a human head in a boiling pot.

Before leaving the gas station, I went to see the grocery store. It was locked. I went to search for a way to open the grocery store's door, I decided to double check the restaurant and saw a garage door leading to the back of the restaurant. After going through the door and exploring the closed area behind the restaurant, a group of mutants came out of no where. Fortunately I survived and found the card for the grocery store as well.

I went to open the doors of the grocery store and found the group of scavengers. Possibly the "red"s. After a fearsome fight, I was able to beat them. Turns out they were protecting a booze factory. I blew up the booze factory and opened a way for me to escape. There's no reason to stay here anymore.

>In 1996, along with the Cuban Ministries of Education (MINED), the Cuban National Center for Sex Education created a National Sex Education Program for Cuban schools to teach children about sex in terms of procreation and as a means of pleasure and holistic well-being, gender equality, sexual violence, and sexually transmitted infections.


>In 2008, the CENESEX and the National Commission for Comprehensive Attention to Transsexual People established May as an awareness month about LGBT issues, specifically homo- and trans-phobia. The month of May is turned into a month of awareness as well as festive activities centered around and planned by members of the LGBT+ community, and is centered around the annual International Day Against Homophobia on May 17. The National Commission for Comprehensive Attention to Transsexual People campaigns for effective AIDS prevention as well as recognition and acceptance of LGBT human rights.
