I won't lie, there is a part of me that really wants for Cyberpunk to turn out shit, or worse - mediocre. Mainly because fuck capital G Gamers and fuck the notion that there are good-guy vidya company. Also it would be sweet for me personally, as CDPR fucked up Gwent with the Homecoming patch.

Looks like a modernized Commandos clone. Not that it is bad. While I never liked that game series, I'd imagine there are quite a few fans of it that have been waiting for something like this. Last game similar to this that I recall was probably around 10 years ago and was set in Vietnam.

>Minecraft is one of the greatest cons of independent game development ever.
This is just a meme repeated by people who hate Notch and/or Minecraft, and never liked it in the first place.
It's a cultural phenomenon with a massive following in multiple generations of gamers. The "Minecraft was ripped off from Infiniminer" is a bullshit argument, games and media borrow from each other all the time, sometimes rather blatantly. Just because infiniminer came first doesn't mean that it should lay claim to the concept voxel based mining/building forever. That's capitalist intellectual property logic. As for Minecraft being "unfinished", that's also bullshit, it's a sandbox game, they could keep adding new features until the end of time, it would never be "finished" in that sense. Some things planned early in development never came to be, but that's just how game development goes sometimes.

> Exile III, Wind & Water Puzzle Battles, Hellsinker, or impressive community open source projects like Battle for Wesnoth

Are you joking? None of these are anywhere near the level of Minecraft.

The only legit criticisms are the selling out to MS and promising that the game could go open source eventually.

The 'imperials versus stormcloaks' situation in general.

What would you think of it? Did the story writers anticipate the rise of 'the alt-right' irl in a way?

The Thalmor might be the Neoliberal billionaires and their supporters or the Bilderberg meeting's members. Best comparison I can think of.

Stormcloaks are a religious, isolationist kingdom that wants to shirk their obligations to the empire mostly just because it is going through a rough patch
The Empire is a pluralistic and multicultural empire which is basically what the Roman Empire would be if it lived up to its best values, but because of their weak response to the Oblivion Crisis + the rise of the Thalmor, they have been heavily reduced in territory to Cyrodil, Skyrim (for now), and High Rock, with an informal alliance with Hammerfell.

The Thalmor are an outright genocidal supremacist religious extremist group. The Aldmeria religion quite literally says that the high elves are basically descendants of the gods trapped to live in the material realm because of the trickery of Lorkhan, and that humans are by extension basically demons who came out of Lorkhans trickery. As such they basically see humans as less than people and totally disposable, and the only reason they aren't doing mass-genocide of humans is because the Empire has still somewhat stopped them. In the meantime though they've taken to genociding their "fellow" elven brothers in the Wood Elves because they think they have deviated from the divine form by… mutating over the several thousand years they have lived on their continent. Oh, did we mention that Ulfric was in the pockets of the Thalmor, and thus is probably literally a plant and the whole civil war organized to weaken the empire for the upcoming round 2?

tl;dr, the Thalmor are evil, the Stormcloaks are retarded, the Empire is imperfect but the best choice in the situation.

>>5458
All of this is correct, but there is another dimension to it than that.
The truly cursed element is that the Thalmor are kind of right.
Not necessarily that the 'correct' thing to do is to genocide to return to oneness, but rather that their plan at the very least would actually work.
Because the mythology and religion of people in the Elder Scrolls world isn't a bunch of fake bullshit, it's very real in the context of their world, and magic and CHIM are constantly happening.

Meaning that mer were elements of a timeless, spaceless everything-'god'-being (Godhead?) before Lorkhan tricked the Aedra to make the world (among other things);
also I forget where men come from in the lore, I think they're also originally from the same place and were mer but got corrupted somehow, not sure though.
Thalmor are still going with the most insane and evil possible solution to something that isn't necessarily a problem though, as existing materially rather than ethereally is something they've chosen to perceive as a problem that needs solved.

And Stormcloaks is definitely the Thalmor ISIS: funded solely to sow discontent and weakness in the region regardless of who wins in the end.

The Thalmor would like "No one to win" as to bleed the empires resources dry so that when the next war starts in 20 years they can storm into the imperial city blow up the tower and GG no re everything is Void!

That dosen't mean that the stormcloaks winning would not basically be game over for the empire anyway.
Unless Hammerfall was able to resist the impending Thalmor invasion of allthe lands of man and High Rock somehow remained loyal to the empire even eithout any land connection to cyrodil.

So I'm playing exodus and it's just another boring shooter - you run, you shüt, you grab loot. But this part, when I've arrived at Yamantau, I've shit my pants at. They literally portray soviet (or russian, idk about the lore) government as a group of blood crazed cannibals feasting on their braindead subhuman people. Holy shit. Ukres just can't keep their bullshit off. Is this kind of subtle sociopolitical commentary gonna continue?

thanks for sharing. I find it weird though that they said that Russian setting is not common. It seems like a lot of modern games are picking up the post-Soviet aesthetic… PUBG, COD Warzone, Escape from Tarkov. I guess it all started with ARMA 2 and DayZ, but at the same time that was probably influenced by STALKER and Metro.

The game is about "you" a newly elected democratic president with a mayority in both houses getting all those sweets reforms passed, mantaining a deficit and fighting against climate change and for workers rights.
It's about going Allende but withouth a Pinochet (or an american embassy) around.
I think it's pretty good. But it sugarcoats the level of reaction a socialist goverment would get.

Wolfenstein is the only one of those franchises that's irrevocably tanked as of late, and needs another reboot.
>Its going to shit it self soon in a crash resembling the Atarii collapse
Crashfags are delusional. Vidya industry is bigger than ever, having outgrown every single form of old media (movies, music, books, etc.) other than TV, and has continued setting growth records every year, in particular being one of the few major winners during lockdown this year.

Even the mythology of "The Great Crash" is basically just Atari/Nintendo propaganda, both PC and arcade were totally unscathed through 1983. There has never been a crash.

The only vaguely plausible cорe I've heard from crashfags on /v/ is a theory that the over a hundred of billion dollars a year from tens of millions of "core" gaymurz and a billion casuals, comes entirely from a small number of mega hits like Fortnight and LOL, as opposed to a larger number of smaller blockbusters in other media, and that the population of "high attach rate" gaymurz stagnated back in the '00s.

I haven't found enough stats to completely debunk it, but a quick sanity check of blockbuster vidya revenue contrasted with total industry take indicates it's unlikely.

It kinda sucks, because about a decade and a half ago I was deadset going to start working in the industry, but parents and boomers scared the shit out of me so I ended up doing logistics.
Now it's a billion dollar industry and logistics is being automated.

A bunch that originated from the home computer milieu, as opposed to the *N*X milieu, so they have actual GUIs. IVAN and Castle of the Winds are two I'd recommend.

There's also some more casual examples like Jupiter Hell, and console roguelikes such as Mysterious Dungeon.
