Really similar to the Communist era Russian literature I snort up my nose, so I'm assuming it's accurate.

Let’s see what you get for “Following the orders of the oppressive communist state.

>Easily enough pay and resources to feed your family as long as your good at home economics.

>Quick and stable increase in standard of living (Even without being a corrupt offical you can eventually purchase new apartments and finally a home for your family.
>Absolute job security as long as you don’t catastrophically fuck up.

Meanwhile if you become a corrupt offical or a terrorist you take a bunch of bribes from drug dealers and commit several terror attacks before fleeing the country

Kinda bullshit on the "if you don't do good enough you starve" though. They should have a flat living wage with bigger bonuses based on your performance. The only cases where starvation like in the DPRK never happen to state officials.

Since the industrial revolution 'Lawful Evil' has become far more common than 'Neutral Evil'.

Although today it exists more in the form of crime gangs, just like how bandits were often that way back then.

'Lawful Good' and 'Chaotic Evil' are equally rare alignments to each other.

The 'good guys vs villains' stuff is often more in the form of 'chaotic good', chaotic neutral (sometimes) and 'neutral good' going up against 'lawful evil'.

If you designed a fantasy game that mirrors real life in 'alignment distribution' this is how it would look.

If a character like Mehrunes Dagon or Zamorak were to show up in the real world through some sort of 'inter-reality travel' he would be seen as a hero. Planet Earth from now to the 1990s would certainly be the most ideal setting.

Yes, most ranging to nearly all bad guys or villains in real life are 'Lawful Evil'.

'Neutral Evil' and possibly 'chaotic evil' irl villains were common in pre-industrial times. 'Neutral evil' applies more to some 'crime gangs' more.

'Lawful good' is very rare and only. Chaotic or neutral good are the most common forms of 'good guys'.

Al-Asad was morally in the right. He took power by overthrowing the corrupt western backed President who was selling his nation's resources without helping his citizenry.

American then suddenly invades and pretty much destroys every city in his country. When they're about to capture the capital city the US forces get rightfully nuked (and in the third game it's revealed Asad didn't even order the nuke).

He then got killed in a black operation by Brits for a crime he didn't commit.

I do not agree with all the politics of disco Elysium.
But, most video game are, to me, alienation. Video games are mostly a waste of your free brain time. Most of the the time only mindless violence.
So I stand by what I said, it’s the only game worth your time for a leftist. Or at least one of the few.

"The legion will bury a country/kingdom at the first sign of exposure."

If only there was a real life version of the legion that dealt with places corrupted by the 'neoliberal abyss' a similar way. Where human thinking or behavior is so depraved to a point where you have all this BS where the masses hardly care at all about climate change, inequality and doing anything to eliminate pandemics.

The crazy conspiracy theorist Alt-Right are pretty much like Abyss corrupted 'people' but it happens to their brains instead of bodies.

So in case you didn't hear about some of the stuff people have found digging through the files of Alyx but Half-Life 3 literally died for this game as in the assets for the cancelled Half-Life 3 game are still in Source 2's coding and even the weapons for the game are still packaged in the model files.

Also it turns out Alyx is just a reworked Half-Life short story as people found the normal non-VR files for the game and it was just a tech demo that was 40 minutes long, the VR stuff was just slapped on and it was turned into a full game.

TL;DR: Alyx is just the greedy cash grab on the Half-Life name we all knew it was and the proof was literally in the pudding.

Hi, Does anyone else here play LCS?
I am working on updating it and would appreciate it if i could throw ideas around here, take suggestions and ask people to test out some of my changes?

Original game can be found Here: http://lcs.wikidot.com/
and
https://github.com/Kamal-Sadek/Liberal-Crime-Squad

Please report me any bugs here, too as there are currently no other active developers. Would be great if other people wanted to be involved, too.

New features added:
>Base
Field Hospital: kind of acts the same way as the clinic does but in the future you will a chance arrested if you go to the clinic after committing a crime.
-Option to sneak out of a siege. This is difficult and depends on the stats of highest and lowest member of squad.
-If not in siege, popular and been active 1+ year pretty decent members will come and ask to join your squad.

>Sleepers

more things to do in there undercover day jobs. This needs to be expanded even more but i started with a couple.

>chargen

revamped original 10 chargen questions but added one more; the 'my experience with reaction' one in pic. Needs to overhaul this to add more and lower base stats at birth.

Your spelling and stuff is a bit questionable, also I kinda liked the 'mischievous' tone of the original game's writing, it's hard to think how to change the game to be more unironically pro-left though without losing the charm.

Cheers anon. i just quickly threw in the texts so i had something to test with the actual code i wrote. i figured i'd edit and check it all after this portion is done fully.

I have been thinking a lot about this too, not only how it should retain it's humour but actually how it should add more.

Do you have any ideas? In this version im basingg of off the president is in there (you can go to the whitehouse,) So i thought there might be some comody to be had there. And i was thinking of updating the random things like pickup lines, interogation lines, wisdom lines, etc.

If you have any ideas. :)
