Comrades, it's that time again: Lenin is young and October lies ahead!
Time for a Crisis in the Kremlin game thread like in the good old days. We'll be playing on 'Realism' difficulty and starting at the earliest bookmark, 1985!

And so comrades, take your seats as members of the Central Committee of the CPSU, take up flags, or namefag if you like, for some degree of recognisability when tallying votes and take up the burden of the collective leadership as it is time for you to elect our new General Secretary following the unfortunate passing of Comrade Chernenko.

Your candidates are as follows:
-The young protege of Andropov and stalwart, Comrade Grigory Romanov
-The young up and coming reformist, Comrade Gorbachev
-The trusted Brezhnevite centrist, Comrade Grishin
-The party grandee and diplomatic excellency, Comrade Gromyko
-or perhaps the a previously unknown black horse from the party rank will secure the Central Committee's confidence?

Comrades of the Central Committee, the future of the Party, the Union, the Socialist Camp and the Human Race itself is in your hands!soviet_unionSoviet Union

cut envelopes completely, drive out the corruption!
cut salaries too and pour money into the state mechanism and KGB. We will keep the careerists frozen in fear by super Stalinism mwahahaha

for real it's a good strategy in the early game to reduce corruption, just leave republics envelopes at 50 or they will go apeshit. Perhaps it does not matter on realism though anyways

Are you excited for the sequel to the game that Finally Took A Stance Against Capital by having every NPC horrified at violence against the bourgeoisie, communism not mentioned a single time and the best ending being a slight tax on the wealthy?

I would say that despite the insect spawning, mountains provide a degree of security that is not possible outdoors. Siege attacks, surprise attacks, drill attacks are trivial to defeat if your base is in a mountain; the mountain blocks mortar shells, provides an insane degree of wall thickness on at least three sides, and prevents enemy drop-pods from falling inside the base. Insects can be a problem early-on, but after getting proper weapons colonists shouldn't have trouble killing insects. They're actually a convenient source of meat especially on the more punishing cold maps.

Ohhhh shit this looks awesome! I'd been hoping for a Saints Row return to more grounded stuff, where walking and driving matter, but without the old outdadted gangbanger tone of 1. I'm really liking the setting and characters, this looks like it's gonna be great fun. Can't wait for next year! I also LOOOOOVED WD2 and I'm so excited to see Volition adoption similar aesthetics for the Saints

Why is this so much more expensive in EU countries? Valve basically put plus 25% on the US price tag.

EU list prices include Value Added Tax
US list prices don't

If the EU VAT is 20% (i'm guessing this number), it would be only 5% more expensive

If no one has played this great classic space sim from the golden age of pc gaming (90s to mid 2000s) you owe it a chance. Descent Freespace, including the silent threat expansion and the sequel, Descent Freespace 2, are arguably the greatest games ever created in the space sim genre.

This guy has a pretty good video series on the games:

I want to love it. I really like the aesthetic. The sim aspects seem pretty deep. I like the idea of the lore and the world.

I don't like how you're outnumbered in every battle though. I think it's really fucking dumb that you can only use one ship at a time while the enemy can field their whole squadron. I can't fucking grok the aiming and it really annoys me when I whiff an entire salvo because the shitty reticle fucking sucks at indicating where my attack is going to go and the weapons are so fucking small you can't tell where they're aiming.

Probably because they’re shit at programming an ally AI or implementing a basic system to order your fleet. I love the game but Airships conquer the skies has it beaten in this aspect. Where fielding more than 30 ships at end game is the norm.

Vomitoreum is a doom engine game that just came out and it's basically a short metroidvania in a world made up of shit and awful. I especially enjoy how, instead of learning how to bend your knees slightly or lie on the ground, you painfully crunch your body down into a small sphere to roll around in vents in full metroid tradition.

There's also a massive 'update'/free sequel to Hedon coming out in just a few days so I'll be playing that as well. It's another atmospheric game and has an arx fatalis vibe with underground cities running off steampunk and magic, except populated by big titty orcs and goblins including your own 8 foot tall amazonian self.

This piece of shit can't even maintain a stable 100fps despite using current gen hardware in addition to sucking up 200gb of space because nothing is compressed. Oh yeah and hacking is rampant.
I thought Apex Legends was buggy trash until I played Warzone and realized that no, Apex wasn't even close to being the worst BR.

On the bright side this means CoD is going to die soon because their devs keep shitting out 200gb patches and games and one of the biggest sources of American imperialist propaganda will no longer reach the masses because Activision got too lazy to bother with hardware optimization lol
