Zhdanov is really based in his regional focus tree but then they just make him comically evil in his superregional tree and then he just dies. Someone here should make a rework mod for him.

You can't go wrong with playing them as originally intended: NES, SNES, and GBA.
Most people start with 2, go to 3, and 1 is usually an afterthought because of the grind.

I personally suggest playing 1 via the 1+2 remake for GBA, but that's just me.

No and it's about the only thing that would make the game better. There is no collective workers struggle that topples the Pigmasks, it revolved around 2 psychic kids, a dog and a neet finding enough mcguffins.
It is the most outwardly anti-capitalist game I've ever played though, and probably the best JRPG ever made in regards to the system it came out on. Like, they pretty accurately depicted the carrots and sticks of imperialism, they never try to portray capitalism as anything but "when things got shitty", reform isn't even on the table because any half measure would still be barbaric compared to what the Nowhere Islands were before.
Even the personal stories the characters go through have a strong anti-reactionary bent. The entire chapter with Flint shows just how hollow and useless petty revenge against an exploited group is, but it never hesitates to show that all violence carried out against the Pig Mask Army is absolutely fucking justified.
One of my biggest frustrations with other supposed anti-capitalist games is that they try to suggest that whatever self-defense against capitalism is taken is just as brutal as capitalism itself, The Outer Worlds being the first example that comes to my head. The only time Mother 3 comes anywhere close towards that would be the ending, and even then between the way the events play out and the story that led up to it, totally justified.
Also the Pig Masks are the perfect fascists. They show up as police a lot of the time, and do "police shit" (protect capital). They're threatening with their tech and fetish for violence, but they're also a bunch of fat dipshits who bumble around in an amusing way.

What comes close to a revolution, I think, is the Dragon's awakening. It destroys, but also has the potential to rebuild, depending on the person who pulls the needles. And to get rid of Porky's empire it has to be completely destroyed. Most of the characters who learned about the Dragon and the needles supported Lucas.

Is this the worst mechanic ever put into action games? Is there anything more deflating then framing gameplay in real time with spatial control to give the appearance of player control and skill mattering, only to have them fail at random due to a number?

Hello comrades, I've been playing the Harvest Moon/ Rune Factory/ Story of Seasons series for a long time, is Farming Simulator worth it? Is it relaxing and tranquil? Or is it too realistic and a desperate push to break even?

Other sims allowed in this thread too, flight sims, goat sims, whatever.

The Harvest Moon series is best described as a sort of social life RPG. It's a big mistake to group it in with sims, which don't even making any real attempt to be games.

The site's good for general discussion of gaming stuff of course, but for those who play multiplayer there's no way to connect and team up with/1v1 fellow bunkerbros,
and the actual /leftypol/ Matrix server seems more for direct discussion about political theory (duh) and moderation.
I just wanna play tf2 with bros who don't think 'gasthejuice' is actually funny, you know.
Voot and discuss.

It seems like a pretty random place, but it seems like that these people are pretty much 80% trump supporters. A lot of ex-obsidian guys hang out over there and shit post about SJWs and stuff. It's a pretty big place where Underrail and Age of Decadence (the two big meme CRPGs) developers hang out so it's not a small place.
I Just find it weird how reactionary these people are though.

What are your favourites? Been playing pic related (Rogue State) yesterday, it's not the best game but it has a banging national anthem.

Last week I played Suzerain at the suggestion of a topic on bunkerchan, that was better IMO but I ran into a game ending bug which is always sad.

Which ones do you love? Hidden Agenda, Democracy 3, or?

Should I get it?

I wonder if it will be in favour of libertarian socialism or a completely decontextualised porky screed. The description says it will try to 'tackle the issues of 2020' so that sounds like a winner.

Figures. The fact they had the persmission of the Orwell estate just makes it more damning.

I pirated it and tried to play, but all three times I played it Snowball was exiled from the farm by Napoleon after proposing the windmill and things deteriorated from there. Also, the game basically portrays all of the pigs as pretty hypocritical and malevolent, rather than having Snowball as a 'counterweight' and basically gives the impression that animal farm sucks and it was better when the farmers ran things. I'm sure it's possible to win but after 2.5 plays I don't really wanna put in the effort to do more. It's also VERY repetitive. Overall, a 4/10.

post I was replying to

> Imre Jele – Project Founder

>“Animal Farm is a literary masterpiece which uses deceptively simple language to accurately describe the downfall of communism from the dream of equality into totalitarian oppression. The fate of the farm was all too real for me growing up in totalitarian Hungary.
> “History seems to repeat itself. And once more, Orwell’s classic has become a painfully relevant warning as some Western democracies started using tools and language eerily similar to those of oppressive regimes of the past.
> “I’ve long wanted to explore how, through video gaming, we could design an experience which immerses the player in Orwell’s vision, and in Nerial we found the perfect partner to make this happen.”
