Is it any good? I haven't played it myself
Also do I have to play the previous games to understand what's going on?

I'm currently playing through act3 as Durge and here is how it looks to me, in hindsight:

Act 1:
Finished, packed and polished.

Act 2:
Unfinished, rushed and sparse. You can practically feel the budget/devtime vanishing(though ironically, you will never see the shadowcurse subside) halfway through.

Act 3:
Unfinished, cobbled together from whatever they already had half done, in a rush. It's crammed with half cooked gameplay, hacked together story bits and rushed/missing resolutions in equal part. Some aspects of it, like the circus, feel like an afterthought filler built around spare voice lines in the last minute. While others, like Sorcerous Sundries, have a shine of thoroughly polished turd, by people who weren't given anything else to do for weeks on end.

Act 4:
Cannibalized in it's infancy by Act3, which now wear's it's overstretched skin like a "mankini".

Act 5:
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Blizzard had a survival game in the works for more than 6 years and just gutted the entire team. Anything that isn't an established IP is out, but even successful teams have been hit pretty badly by the layoffs. Hope everyone likes endless sequels and remasters!

To develop LoL, TFT, LoR, Valorant, Convergence, Song of Nunu, The Mageseeker, Hextech Mayhem, Ruined King, the two big ones still in development, the fighting game and the MMO, on top of the hit Netflix show Arcane, I would say 5500 people is way too little.

>The Swedish gaming company Embracer Group AB is canceling a video game in the beloved Deus Ex series after two years of development and will lay off a number of employees as part of an ongoing initiative to cut costs, according to people familiar with the moves.
>The canceled Deus Ex project, which had not yet been announced, was slated to enter production later this year, said the people, speaking anonymously because they are not authorized to talk to the press.
>The sci-fi Deus Ex series has been critically acclaimed and sold more than 14 million units worldwide. It was acquired by Embracer in 2022.

So I'm not an experienced game developer or anything, but I figured we should have a general dedicated to this sort of thing, especially since I'm interested to hear peoples' ideas on lefty-orientated videogames that would be cool for me to make.
I've been using Blender since I was 11 or 12 years old (I'm 20 now) so I'm pretty much at a level now where I can model any game asset I want. I'm also in school for Computer Engineering, and have been a hobby programmer since I was around 14 working with Python, C, and GLSL shaders, so I can script pretty much anything as well. I would say my main weaknesses when approaching a task like this are Sculpting, Spriting, and Painting, so to any drawfags/artfags with skills: I invite you to contribute on whatever projects we end up embarking on.

I can't program, so here is a free game idea: V A U S H simulator. Multiplayer only. Players take turns. You get a randomly selected picture (moldy bread, praying mantis, guy at dentist, etc.) and you have to say that this turns you on and give a passionate rant about how this is normal and healthy. Other players rate the speech, best speech wins.

Honestly Bannerlord is an exemplary sequel. It kept all the great things about Warband and either improved on them (especially graphics and UI/quality of life) or simply gave us more content (bigger map, more factions, more mechanics like civil wars and rebellions etc).

Which of SMT games is the closest to eraMegaten? I've only played personas on emulators, but judging by youtube playthroughs of SMT games it feels like what a Palworld is to a Pokemon

What a fun game, anyway. Get Ringo to assume a "persona" of a demon with full magical reflect/resist and give her tetrakarn, get Figue to assume a "persona" of a demon with full physical reflect/resist and give her makarakarn, somebody to break enemy's resist to fire or something, somebody to buff, somebody to debuff, and then go and smash the enemy with some fire physical ability or with a fire-infused weapon.

Do corporations just hate people? Once I used to think that sure you have big bourgeoisie who act in their class interests but you still has creatives who could flex their muscles and produce something great and then it would make a shit ton of money for publishers. But it seems that publishers these days just absolutely hate developers and moreso despise the consumers and now you have what the modern gaming industry is today, record profits with absolute gutted and half made releases with microtransactions to "buy" the full game. Also physical copies aren't useful anymore and digital copies can basically be "erased" at any time. All of these problems make me think that they just hate, like actually hate their consumers.

I'm not sure it's because they're afraid of being cringe, I think they genuinely just have no attachment to their work or emotional investment in it so they can't write any genuine emotion. I mean if you had to work on capeshit version #729 would you put effort into making it good?

No, worse. They don't care. They absolutely do not care. That's what caring about your class interests means: you don't care about the interests of the other class. And why should they? As long as the money's flowing, it doesn't matter. As long as the masses are brainwashed into buying tbeir games, it doesn't matter. They would turn all of you into gambling addicts if they could, that's an even easier profit.

This. Nobody should be playing AAA trash. It should be flushed down the toilet, where it belongs. Though I'm not sure that the AAA publishers will go bankrupt. Especially since the platform holders actively promote and serve them (console platforms display their crap on the front pages of their stores, Steam allows them to add Denuvo so people can't pirate their shitty games, etc.).

Not really, the UNSC never recovers and a lot of insurrectionists survived the war and made rival governments, as per Halo 5's item descriptions. But that was something known since Fall of Reach, a lot of rebels were already in deep hiding from the UNSC so they came out of the war pretty good, especially since their piracy of Covenant vessels has given them an edge on reverse-engineered Covenant tech.

If halo 5 wasn't shit it'd be about Chief defecting from the UNSC to those guys and actually being hunted down for it

I was kind of intending this thread to be a storehouse of replies for

<hurrr but who would work without profit motive???? you ever thought about that commie?


where fans have for one reason or another put in a great deal of time and effort to maintain or recreate digital experiences.

For example, I stumbled on some videos for a fan recreation of TIE fighter which, from the clips of it, looks really neat. It seems like video related is a mod based off of another mod for the million year old X-wing Alliance engine. I need to look further into it and see if it's built off of the original game, or its own standalone deal meant to mimic it.

Then there's also Tamriel Reborn that seems like it isn't just a remake of the original, but actually expands on the original Morrowind, I guess to add back in all of the content that had to be cut. Apparently they've been going at it since 2001.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKyrzZRo-O0

Then there's DOOM, which has just had an insane amount of work done on it and with it since it was released. It's actually pretty amazing to see what people are capable of doing with it after so long.

In practice, the great motivator to do something without a profit motive is agrarian-like self-subsistence. Say, if you need something and there's no alternative you'll be like: "Ah, fuck this, I'MMA DO IT MYSELF!!" That's why there's so much mods and libre software tools yet so little libre games that aren't clones and reimplementations of other games. Because while you may need some changes to be made to something already existing here and there you won't really feel the need to create something new. That's why there should be some community motivation of some sort. Not necessarily a market but something like game jams or stuff like that. No idea how that would work under communism though.
