Rec me a linux, or android game that 3 people can play on a tv with a wireless keyboard + mouse.

A game where we can learn something political about a historical campaign maybe?

Boardgames too - there isn't much money though and just 3 people.

Looks like I'm a gamer again.

Does DSfix work for the DS1 rework? I repirated it again, but my new monitor is unable to have neither 30 nor 60 Hz refresh and the game is thus bricked. Should I just get the older version of the game instead?


yeah id just get an older version of the game, its arguably better anyway


Why not both, and play them in order?


DSfix is for the original.


Because people talk about how radically different both are from each other, and so i wanted to see which one of them i vibed with more. But i guess i could do that.

Maybe you should try playing the game before publicly humiliating yourself

One thing I don't see talked about concerning this game is how it acts as a pseudo-political compass test yes i know those are bullshit. At some point in the game, one of your skills tells you that you need to "pick a lane" and decide what your politics are. I believe the dialogue options up to your decision are unique based on what choices you've made so far.

My first playthrough of this game was when I first started delving into communist theory but I still had a lot of liberal brainworms. The game told me I was always picking "option D" and that I'd fit right in with the moral-intern. I did a 2nd playthrough of the game when they released the voice acting update and I was constantly facepalming at missing all the obvious commie choices I though were confusing when I first played this game. I'd recommend anyone to do another playthrough of the game after a few years, just to see how you've changed with time. You might be as surprised as I was.

If you can, get this shit on sale right now. I'm having a great laugh with it.

The giant gigaracist was a brutal parody of /his/ haploautists, embodying their beliefs in the thing they hate the most, a big black dude with a harem of white women. It was hilarious, I'm willing to bet the writers lurk 4chan a lot.

Fuck that shit uygha, my Harry's going to drag those 37 gold bars of communism from the embers of the revolution and chuck each and every one through the windows of capital while high on speed, because he's a superstar.

Speaking of which, the innocences are basically the highest expression of Harry's concept of a superstar. They're even compatible with communism. The way Encyclopedia described them (when examining the big Dolores Dei glass), they're basically agents of change who drag humanity kicking and screaming into a new age of progress whether the established institutions like it or not, not because of their own vision, but because those developments were inevitable. They accelerate the dialectic and create weeks in which decades happen. And they have a "party" which names worthy successors to previous ideologues like Shia imams.

I think if the world revolution succeeds in the future, commies could rewrite the system of innocences and make Mazov the first in a new line, then search for worthy successors to carry his name on. New heads of communism to add to banners and propaganda posters. And put a communist party in charge of it. Then like Dolores Dei, they could blaze a new path for humanity and BTFO the Moralintern.
Just imagine it, Revachol covered with posters and giant TV screens plastered with Chairman Harry doing The Expression.

I bet they're packing more amiibo shit into it.


Probably, but it's not like you really needed to use the Amibos.


There's some stuff you can't get without using them. It's really gay.


Nah the first game was a trial run with amiibos. They are gonna do some obnoxious shit like put bossfights or ingredients to upgrade your gear behind amiibos. Bet.

Open World hadn't been codified at that point but arguably it was a precursor. I would almost define "open world" by the sheer amount of space you have to pass through where there's no meaningful content (which is to say it's a bad genre) rather than the ability to just walk anywhere, because the former seems much more characteristic of Open World games than the latter.

Watch it get delayed until the next console.


>They are gonna do some obnoxious shit like put bossfights or ingredients to upgrade your gear behind amiibos.

Shut the fuck up, they might hear you.

This seems like a good topic for a /leftypol/ gaming thread since it is both autistic gaming discussion and actually has potential for a leftist development of strategy.

Maybe this would ideally be better suited for /hobby/ but as long as /games/ is more active seems sensible to just post anything related to games in any form here, like the chess thread or other tabletop.

I've recently been interested in the kind of "wargames" (broadly meaning military/political/strategic/policy simulation) that militaries, intelligence agencies, and consultant groups use to strategize and troubleshoot their plans. Personally this is interesting as far as I enjoy playing and designing strategy games. More generally, this seems like a good investment of time for leftists who are nerds who enjoy this shit anyway because it is a way to attempt to apply "gaming" to actual strategic considerations.

The best publicly available version of this I've seen that is also utilized by the aforementioned groups is Matrix Games, which is a very rules-lite and scaleable model that tries to remove constraining gameplay meta in favor of players debating what is within reason and what is not. Whether this makes for the most "fun" gameplay possible is besides the point, because the idea is to use the tabletop wargame format to explore the widest range of strategic possibilities, and establishing in-game advantages and victories based on serious discussion of what would be concievable under the given circumstances seems to be a good way to encourage thinking outside the box and considering various angles.


Some abbreviated info from the website:

<What are Matrix Games?

>Matrix games are different to normal Wargames and Role-Playing games. In a these games you compare lists of statistics and peer at complicated books of rules containing someone else's idea about what things are important, before rolling a dice. It takes a long time and can be very difficult to explain to a newcomer. Instead, in a Matrix Game you simply use words to describe why something should happen, the Umpire decides how likely it is, and you roll a dice. If you can say "This happens, for the following reasons…" you can play a Matrix Game.

I feel like these games should be a lot more popular amongst the autists here. They make other strategy games feel shallow.



I don't see how a turn based game can be considered 'realistic'


Maybe that's being a little harsh, but, those games always just looked so unfun to me. At least with HOI you can do politics and stuff to break up the wars, these games look like they take ages and aren't that rewarding.


I will join if I can make a new fbi.gov without my phone. You guys can just pirate any campaign for free. Let me know what you decide on and I will try and find it.


It's asynchronous wego so it's more realistic than regular turn based games.

That's fair. I just prefer the detail of simulation focused games. To me the reward is overcoming the difficulty and also alt-history aspects.

OSRS is boomers minmaxing the same game for 20 years
FFXIV is okay but dull
WoW is dead
WoW Classic is dead
GW2 is not for me
ESO is a singleplayer game
I probably can't run PSO2NG
Anything else?

Black Desert


As someone who plays FFXIV unless you run the higher difficulty raids it's basically just turn off your brain and grind whenever you're not doing the story. Hell a good number of people just straight up unsub from the game whenever they finish the story content.


planetside 2 but not really but I’m addicted to it so idk


I've been playing Lineage W. It's just the same old Lineage 1, but the auto-translate feature has been fun and I got to talk to a North Korean guy.


PSO2NG is more of a dressup simulator than an MMORPG, there's almost no story (and what little story exists is boring) and most players spend their time and effort collecting cosmetics for their big booba characters. the combat is flashy but not that challenging or interesting

there's a private server for WoW called project ascension, they have servers where you can pick any talent and ability from any class and there are enchants that add synergies to different ability combinations, it's pretty cool and surprisingly active

new world is a huge shame, i did alpha testing for that game and you could see the bones of something great but they never quite got it down. they took a lot of feedback but i think they were trying to do too much too quickly, and chasing a fundamentally flawed design with factions and company control of cities

SWTOR is ok but it's even more single player than ESO and almost seems held back by being an MMO. imperial agent or sith warrior storylines could easily be their own standalone games, and much better for it
