Anyone else playing? It was a favorite of mine growing up and I just bought the remaster. They did a great job on it. I also love how at the end of the mission you get a newspaper headline showing the government covering up cryptos existence by blaming everything on them commies!


>I just bought the remaster
Cringe. I expected better of you.


Bumping my thread, when scanning workers some will have communist sympathies. This game is a lot more based than I remember. It's also fun in a sort of reverse xcom way in that the humans start getting alien tech as you progress.

Quarantine is goin' steady, so what have y'all done to clear the backlog of unpainted models on your painting table?


Model painting isn't a game.


It's srs business.

I know about its factual inaccuracies. That it's just a copy of enemy at the gates. However let me explain how this was many kids first exposure to the ussr and what a great job it did communicating through gameplay what the war was.

The soviet campaign takes place last in the game, after the british and american ones. Throughout the game you visit many locations and the mood is an adventurous one. Soldiers remark on celebrating with bottles of wines from french cellars, the beauty of the architecture besides the one or two artillery shelled buildings. And there's never any shortage in supplies.

This quickly changes with the soviet campaign. From the start the design is something that looks like hell. There's no green grass, the sky isn't even blue. Every single building is destroyed by shelling. And what really let you know shit just got real, you don't even get a gun.

They didn't teach ww2 history besides d-day and the atomic bomb, so to a child, this was formative. The creators did an unmatched job communicating the disparity between east and west fronts in the war. It was very clear all of a sudden that the soviets were fighting for their survival in a way the british and americans weren't.

So bravo to call of duty, regardless of how shit it might have become later on, this game will always be one of the greatest achievements of the medium.

And its still garbage


You know since Urzikstan is supposed to be an analogy of Syria I wish they had an equivalent of Assad or the SAA in the campaign. Like there are no Urzikstani collaborators helping the Russians all the Urzikstanis are with the rebels for some reason


I have a feeling that they originally wrote Barkov as a straight expy of Assad and then decided later on to just make him an evil Russian so it wouldn't upset the burger audience. Theres a fair few bits of dialogue that refer to Barkov and his government as if they're not russian and as only getting support from Russia. The whole idea of Barkov feels ridiculous anyway, a rogue general from a different country that happily managed to conquer a country but is also disliked by the nuclear state he's supposed to get all of his troops directly from.

It would not suprise me if they swapped him out for an evil russkie because it tested with their focus groups better.

>a rogue general from a different country that happily managed to conquer a country but is also disliked by the nuclear state he's supposed to get all of his troops directly from.

That was another part that irked me. Like in the first mission there is apparently a distinction between these unmarked mercenaries working for Barkov and the uniformed Russian soldiers that aren't working for him but for the Russian government. But in the entire campaign all of Barkov's men are uniformed Russian soldiers


Thats one of the things I mean, theres a fair few parts of the campaign where its still written as if Barkov isn't a Russian general. If I still played these games for stories I'd have been very taken out of it.

it's gonna be terrible


This tbh, all the good devs from GSC went on to found 4A.


is this in-game engine or just cgi?

non-believers! heresy!


Stalker 2 announced exclusive for X-Box m8s. The trailer got more views than Halo Infinite.



>is this in-game engine or just cgi?
In-engine. Fairly standard for games at this stage of development that want to show what its going to look like.

Thought we should have a thread on these guys, there's one in /hobby/ but the post numbering fucks up when you move a thread so we may as well start again.

They're also like 60% off for the next 10 hours
Includes: Crisis in the Kremlin, Crisis in the Kremlin: The Accident, Ostalgie: The Berlin Wall, China: Mao's legacy, Ostalgie: Legacy of Hoxha, Ostalgie: Fall of the Curtain, Crisis in the Kremlin: Homeland of the Revolution

And I found some stuff of their latest game (screenshots attached why does this shitty website upload them in random order?):

For me, I think, the absolute height of Kremlin Games is their original CITK where you have the military, KGB etc lying to you telling you it's fine after ordering a nuclear assault on half the planet and getting thoroughly deposed, you just don't see that much nowadays. Dr Evil GDR that bombs everything and blames it on NATO is also a great feature.
I think it will be very interesting to win as Russia in the new game, since they're not naive at all and despite being socialists pushing a narrative are very cynical in how they think victory is achieved I agree with them.
I'm ready for narco-state USSR tbqh, with a bit of kidnapping on the side.


I think it's not going to be about Russia, but an unspecified SR. So I think there might be an interesting dynamic where you will have to suck up to Putin's Russia at the cost of your independence to fend off from the western influences. Note how in the screenshot you got what looks like Russian and US influence both at 50.


I recognise that the games are great, but they are too complicated to be worth the time. Except for DDR, Romania, and Hungary in Ostalgie. That shit was fuckn ez.


as much as I like them conceptually, the gameplay can feel too mechanical and the graphics are practically powerpoint slideshow tier


I wish the game told you more about what your policies and technologies actually do.

Let's have a thread dedicated to one of the greatest (and worst) video game series of all time.
Resident evil;

Resident evil 7 is actually terrifying right? I'm not just a massive pussy right? I have trouble playing that game because of how frightening it can be, lol. What do you guys think?


Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition is literally the only good one.

they're thinking of bringing back g4tv
if you dont know what that is, watch this video https://youtu.be/ZEBwGOHntro
how the fuck do they expect this to ever work out? I have great memories of g4 and techtv before it, and i would love it to come back. But its IMPOSSIBLE, it will get cancelled immediately. Even the memory of it should be getting cancelled. There was so much that shit that doesn't fly now like ironic racism, or so exploitative about women. And attack of the show was basically filming olivia munn getting sexually harassed for 2 hours a day

The problem I see, is that they either have to make it woke, which would suck. OR even worse they have to make it anti-woke. It would become like some cringe youtube alt-right shit. There's no going back to just politically neutral gaming where its fine to grope women and they have to like it.


peak of the channel right here


G4 was shit from start to finish. Sage for [b]not video games[/b].


Just focus on gaming and air people playing virtual sports tournaments to fill in dead air. It worked with sports during the pandemic.


This isn't Game Network. Who the hell is Olivia? /v/ wants Geoff!

How's that self-imposed challenge coming, anon?

You do challenge yourself… don't you?

Currently doing NES FF1 using 4 Master Monks.


Is that even fun?


I challenged myself to play one retro game daily


It wasn't as bad as I expected because of their massive damage output. Most bosses didn't last a single turn. I'll finish it at some point… can't train in the last dungeon without an exit spell.

File: 1608527871530-1.png (37.35 KB, 1131x474, DescentII-level2.png)

Recently beat Descent on Insane difficulty with a rule of no mid-level saving allowed. Maybe it's just because I learned what to expect about surprises around corners at some point, but I really feel like the middle of the game where it completely swarms you with homing missile-launching Super Hulks and hitscan insta-firing class 1 drillers is actually the hardest part. I was constantly struggling to make it to the next level with a good score bonus to earn just a few extra lives to survive the next stage. In the final stages, however, I was running around with 10+ lives across levels until the end.

It's unfortunate, but gitting gud at Descent is really about either engaging enemies so far away that it doesn't activate their aggression or having foresight about the level design and making liberal use of homing and smart missiles to kill enemies around corners where they can't shoot. It's a shame this game didn't have some more fair enemy variety, the map design gets very cool in the later levels.

Moving on to Descent II now, and it's amazing how much of an improvement over its predecessor it is. More interesting enemies, more weapons to tackle them in different ways, and the map design gets balls crazy already on the 2nd stage in the game!

So, what do you think about the FF7 remake?

CHADley is the single greatest addition to FF conceivable.
Can't wait til he rams his Seph-clone, materia-enhanced PENIS right into Cloud's cross-dressing BUSSY.


I see Squeenix still hasn't figured out how to make anything other than creepy hollow doll faces.


>The ghosts that can change the timeline of events that are from the future
What? Was this in the original?


This explains what I was feeling pretty well.

The irony of a large video game corporation remaking a game that critiques large corporations and softening the edge / changing the focus of the criticism is pretty funny. The anti-corporate theme just seems absurd when combined with the white-washing of Avalanche, the deaths of the sub-characters, etc.


Maybe you and anyone in general should check out what the PC version looks like modded with the Because retranslation which restranslates it to more closely follow the original Japanese script.

Nothing more voluntary, communitarian, and syndicalistic than partaking in community fanmodding and media in general.
