So I'm playing exodus and it's just another boring shooter - you run, you shüt, you grab loot. But this part, when I've arrived at Yamantau, I've shit my pants at. They literally portray soviet (or russian, idk about the lore) government as a group of blood crazed cannibals feasting on their braindead subhuman people. Holy shit. Ukres just can't keep their bullshit off. Is this kind of subtle sociopolitical commentary gonna continue?

thanks for sharing. I find it weird though that they said that Russian setting is not common. It seems like a lot of modern games are picking up the post-Soviet aesthetic… PUBG, COD Warzone, Escape from Tarkov. I guess it all started with ARMA 2 and DayZ, but at the same time that was probably influenced by STALKER and Metro.

The game is about "you" a newly elected democratic president with a mayority in both houses getting all those sweets reforms passed, mantaining a deficit and fighting against climate change and for workers rights.
It's about going Allende but withouth a Pinochet (or an american embassy) around.
I think it's pretty good. But it sugarcoats the level of reaction a socialist goverment would get.

>Only one I'm kind off sad about
Wolfenstein is the only one of those franchises that's irrevocably tanked as of late, and needs another reboot.
>Its going to shit it self soon in a crash resembling the Atarii collapse
Crashfags are delusional. Vidya industry is bigger than ever, having outgrown every single form of old media (movies, music, books, etc.) other than TV, and has continued setting growth records every year, in particular being one of the few major winners during lockdown this year.

Even the mythology of "The Great Crash" is basically just Atari/Nintendo propaganda, both PC and arcade were totally unscathed through 1983. There has never been a crash.

The only vaguely plausible cорe I've heard from crashfags on /v/ is a theory that the over a hundred of billion dollars a year from tens of millions of "core" gaymurz and a billion casuals, comes entirely from a small number of mega hits like Fortnight and LOL, as opposed to a larger number of smaller blockbusters in other media, and that the population of "high attach rate" gaymurz stagnated back in the '00s.

I haven't found enough stats to completely debunk it, but a quick sanity check of blockbuster vidya revenue contrasted with total industry take indicates it's unlikely.

It kinda sucks, because about a decade and a half ago I was deadset going to start working in the industry, but parents and boomers scared the shit out of me so I ended up doing logistics.
Now it's a billion dollar industry and logistics is being automated.

A bunch that originated from the home computer milieu, as opposed to the *N*X milieu, so they have actual GUIs. IVAN and Castle of the Winds are two I'd recommend.

There's also some more casual examples like Jupiter Hell, and console roguelikes such as Mysterious Dungeon.

Aight, so going down the list of those faction conflicts:

Templars vs Mages.
The reason why I really enjoy this one is because both factions are right in their own way. Mages are absolutely treated like shit and are very often subjected to a fate worse than death - to be made a tranquil, aka magical lobotomy. Also such treatment is reinforced by religious dogma. However, this is not without justification. All mages due to the rules of the setting are constantly a threat to others and themselves. Even the most experienced mages, when the situation is wrong in just the right way, or the circumstance forces one to "go all out", will become possessed by demons and cause destruction to all around them. Control is necessary. I quite like that this conflict is presented in the background and isn't shown as an open conflict (at least if you keep DA:O in a vacuum as it should be, because sequels weren't originally planned). This means that the discussion about what should be done should be far less partisan, and I believe it would be really interesting to discuss the possibilities of how such a conflict could be resolved. Also, I think, it is a very interesting portrayal of the policeman issue, so prevalent currently, of what happens when a guardian starts thinking they are the punisher.

Who becomes the king of Ferelden.
This one is slightly less interesting, but would be quite curious to properly dissect all of the many different paths, as they all relate to the rather interesting topic of feudal politics. I don't recall of the top of my head, but I believe there are like 10 outcomes which all have their own hooks.

Dwarf elections.
The best one for last. I partially delayed my reply so I could look this one up better, as I just discovered myself a new curious perspective for the conflict between the two candidates.
Basically the situation, as first seems presented, is this: dwarfs are a collapsing empire that also is ultraconservative and thus suffers for its failed caste system. The two likely royals are - the son of the last king, Bhelen, who presents himself as a social reformist and an old noble conservative Harrowmont, who claims to stand for stability and to be against the other candidate, alleging he murdered his siblings and father to get into power. Obviously first instinct is to support the reformer, however iPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_of_Guns:_Gun_Disassembly

>World of Guns: Gun Disassembly is a cross-genre simulation and puzzle video game that allows the player to operate and disassemble various firearms, as well as other mechanisms like automobiles, AFVs and aircraft. It was released in 2014 for Windows[1] and Facebook, and has been subsequently ported to the social network VK, as well as OS X, iOS, and Android platforms. The game is a follow-up on the same developer's Gun Disassembly series, first released in 2010,[2] expanding on the latter's feature set and library of interactive models.


>The software can be used as both an interactive firearms reference source and encyclopedia,[3] and a casual puzzle game with a goal of disassembling and assembling models in the correct sequence and in the least possible time.
