For all those oldie goldies, cartridges, CDs, and games that you remember but have since been lost to planned redundancy, discontinued product lines, sites being shut down, just generally losing it, or you only caught a glimpse of it before it was swept away and now are seeking it again. AKA you want a game found that you can no longer get or one you kinda only vaguely remember and need help finding the SAUCE.

I'll start it off: Before the 2012 remake there was a fan made version of XCOM; it had mid 2000s 3D top down graphics, was more grounded in irl military equipment in terms of looks and effects, entirely free, and was rebranded as something else which I have entirely forgotten and why I need help finding it since these days searching for "Xcom fan game" usually nets all the spinoffs since the 2012 remake(which is kinda garbo in my opinion) or Xenonauts. So does anyone know which game I'm talking about? I remember it was very oversaturated with the colour green if that's any help at all.

Link? No I doubt it. Seemed like an indie developer game. Very high quality though and free. With a GOAT tier soundtrack. Pretty sad that I never bookmarked the page or saved the link to my email account back when I played it all the time on my old computer in elementary and middle school.

Was he based? It seems like he was a flawed individual that did his best until he went mad. By the time of RDR2 the gang was already well past it's prime. To me Hosea seemed more so the wise one of the two. Sure Arthur understood the Pinkertons were pawns of the capitalists. Nonetheless he still thought the gang were the bad guys, maybe worse than the capitalists. He particularly despised the usury practices of Strauss and Micah's killing of innocents but went along anyways. There's also the influence the fictional writer Evelyn Miller had on Dutch's supposed ideology. Funny enough Miller admits he's an urbanite hack in side missions and ends up killing himself in the last one. The anti-civilization ideology Arthur and i assume Dutch hold is hardly expanded upon but I'm sure there's real world examples of the era the developers drew from. Despite this their gang seems to be the most civilized out of the enemy ones encountered in the game. So what's the conclusion? Was he just a caricature of leftism the same way Reyes was in the first game or something else?anarcho-communismAnarcho-Communism

I think the only vaguely leftist Character in RDR2 is Javier, who escaped Mexico, because of his Revolutionary Activity. People from Rockstar wanted to lump him into the broader Zapatista Movement I think

>Kapital: Sparks of Revolution is a sandbox economy simulation game about class struggle. You take the role of the new mayor of a 20th century city that was recently destroyed by the Great War. Your mission is to restore the city to its former glory. Manage limited resources to satisfy people’s needs, bring new laws and unlock new technologies. Fight crime and suppress protests. Resolve social conflicts and shape the future of your society!

>Key Features:


>DIVIDED SOCIETY - The population of your city consists of 3 classes: nobles, bourgeois and workers - all of them want a better tomorrow.

>CRISIS MANAGEMENT - Rebuilding the city is not an easy task. Your resources are limited, so you have to decide who will get food and shelter first. Be prepared to face new threats on a regular basis.
>PROTESTS AND RIOTS - There is no way you can make everyone in the city happy. People with unsatisfied needs will protest and riot. You have to decide which class to support and which to suppress.
>SHAPING THE FUTURE - As a ruler of the city, you have the power to bring new laws which shape your society. Which class will become dominant in a new political system? Only you have the answer.

Coming Fall 2021.

It stopped being a pleasure when gen 6 rolled around, 3D was a mistake.

 No.10625

>>10615
Gen 6 was still fun because there were a few new mechanics and the 3D looked fresh at the time, even if ORAS was a bit disappointing
It's Gen 7 where everything went to shit even though they tried to write better plots. At that point every new thing they added in Gen 6 (including the Z-move gimmick which was a repeat of Mega evolution) had gone stale, plus the fact that they released two new versions of the same game instead of just one like they used to

Yes, I think they're fun, but I don't agree that they're solid in terms of the battle mechanics. They haven't changed the core system at all and it's gotten stale. The most innovative thing they've done was add Fairy type.

Also the traditional baby colors pre-ww2 was red for male and light blue for female.

>French vs British comes to mind.

That doesn't really seem to fit though because the British were more analogous to the 'international community' (ie during the Napoleonic period) and they were red.

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.
