Does anyone on /leftypol/ play Go? I am interested in learning how to play it, but I am not sure where to start. That said, I think I will start by reading "Learn How to Play Go" by Janice Kim (Reddit recommended it.). I attached it here to this thread for anyone interested.

Also, a quote from Deleuze, among other things of course, is what really piqued my interest in Go. I'll reproduce it here:

>“Let us take a limited example and compare the war machine and the state apparatus in the context of the theory of games. Let us take chess and Go, from the standpoint of game pieces, the relations between the pieces and the space involved. Chess is a game of the State, or of the court: the emperor of China played it. Chess pieces are coded; they have an internal nature and intrinsic properties from which their movements, situations, and confrontations derive. They have qualities; a knight remains a knight, a pawn a pawn, a bishop a bishop. Each is like a subject of the statement endowed with relative power, and these relative powers combine in a subject of enunciation, that is, the chess player or the game’s form of interiority. Go pieces, I contrast, are pellets, disks, simple arithmetic units, and have only an anonymous, collective, or third-person function: “It” makes a move. “It” could be a man, a woman, a louse, an elephant. Go pieces are elements of a nonsubjectified machine assemblage with no intrinsic properties, only situational ones. Thus the relations are very different in the two cases.

>Within their milieu of interiority, chess pieces entertain biunivocal relations with one another, and with the adversary’s pieces: their functioning is structural. One the other hand, a Go piece has only a milieu of exteriority, or extrinsic relations with nebulas or constellations, according to which it fulfills functions of insertion or situation, such as bordering, encircling, shattering. All by itself, a Go piece can destroy an entire constellation synchronically; a chess piece cannot (or can do so diachronically only). Chess is indeed a war, but an institutionalized, regulated, coded war with a front, a rear, battles. But what is proper to Go is war without battle lines, with neither confrontation nor retreat, without battles even: pure strategy, whereas chess is a semiology. Finally, the space is not at all the same: in chess, it is a question of arranging a closed space for oneself

There are good beginner resources here I think in the puzzle section.
I also suggest playing games on that site as that's where a lot of English speakers play.


thanks, I made an account there.

There is a local Go club in my city, I may check them out. Seems to be full of Asian boomers, though.international_brigadeInternational Brigade


How is your learning going
Lost your first hundred games yet?


I've been reading that GO book I posted and doing some tactics on that website 89 posted. Haven't started a game yet, but I might do so soon.international_brigadeInternational Brigade


Unlike a chess board, a simple grid on a flat piece of wood won't do.
Depending on how big of a board you play on, you may need a whole lot of stones, which also adds to the cost.

That said, there isn't much to game, so it may be a good workshop project.

Hey, I thought about making this game for a while. Usually I have these random ideas and try to put them together. I'm more of a vision and feelings oriented guy. Problem is I'm lacking an idea to give the player some grand "Aha!" moment. You know what I mean if you've played a good game before.

Anyways, so this game is about capitalism. It's supposed to be a small open world game with PS1 graphics. Your character is a random nobody. Their specific identity is of no importance. The game starts off with leading you on the path that you have to find a job and get money to make something out of yourself. You are soon confronted that the kind of jobs you like are unavailable to you, because they have ludicrous demands for junior positions and the other jobs are undignified menial jobs that will hardly give you enough money for you to make it out of poverty. The idea is to make the player believe that's what they should do and the player is made unaware of the fact that he could play the game very differently at any time. The player looks for job and he replays these boring minigames, that represent his menial job, over and over and over again. The player is free to continue and perhaps at some point they will realize they can go about things differently. In the meantime the world building will inform about the conflicts and problems around him. Politicians making promises on stage, crime on the streets, some people ridiculously rich and others pathetically poor and factions slowly brewing in society of which the player can actually join. The player will be subject to random tragic events, like getting hit by a car and having astronomical bills to pay, getting mugged on the street (by a minority and yes that is an important), yada yada. Those inevitable events are supposed to make the player realize that working to fulfill whatever goals they had will not be possible. Because they will never earn enough money. This is when the second phase of the game starts. The player will now explore alternative ways of going about things and come into contact with various factions which will mimic real life factions we see in contemporary politics. These factions must be depicted with a genuine attempt at portraying them honestly, because if we are too on the nose with "HURR DURR WE STUPID NAZIS AND WE DUMB DUMBS BELIEVE JEWS ARE BEHIND EVERYTHING" or "HURR WE ARE DUMB SJWS DUMB DUMBS WHO THINK QUOTAS CAN SOLVE EVERYTHING" people who actually identify with these grPost too long.

the long war mod for xcom 2012 doesn't make much sense.
Xcom like all games has a snowball effect, and the rest of the difficulty tweaking is in contradiction with this.
What would make sense is for more wins to lead to a faster increase in difficulty and a shorter game overall, since you're progressing through the challenge at a quicker pace. Then if you fuck up and lose a mission or some soldiers, the penalty is having to play more game, and its not a campaign ending setback like it is now(at least on the higher difficulties).

I don't expect many to know what im talking about. I had this thought in my head from when long war was still played 6 years ago, before xcom2.


The problem is the way it is now, since the design goal was to make the campaign really long at the cost of all else. Winning doesn't feel like much of a reward. This is why people get burned out after only 20% of the whole campaign. You can't make progress and you can't take risks, you have to play the safest way possible and wait for the game to be over.

unrelated, i checked in on beaglerush and he became a huge sjw which is kinda gay but whatever. thats the price of success.


>This is why people get burned out after only 20% of the whole campaign. You can't make progress and you can't take risks, you have to play the safest way possible and wait for the game to be over.


nah,it's litterally only like that for XCOM2 where it throws bullshit at your face when you progress or upgrade stats of weaker ennemies so they are still as hard as before or if you play on autistic difficulties that are clearly not tested by sound human beings. (or if you play apocalypse for some reason )

Anyone else doesn't like the graphical remakes (like DS, Halo, Shadow of the Collosus, Spyro, etc)? Them graphics look good but it's also done by a completely different team. It's like if they took a movie and reshot it exactly the same but with different actors and new effects. Or if someone redrew mona lisa and now it's supposed to be considered the best version. It results in a different feel and fucked up art style. And yet gamers seem to eat this shit up and ask for more. Am I alone on this?

But Hollywood remakes are considered terrible. No one wants to see Black Christmas remade like what, 3 times by now? Nobody's gonna do Citizen Kane with new actors and shit. And good movie remakes are usually entirely different. For example, John Carpenter's The Thing vs The Thing from Another World. Completely different movies with similar ideas. This is more akin to Resident evil remakes, where everything is redone, new gameplay mechanics introduced. I guess I should've mentioned that I don't mind Resident Evil style remakes. My problem is with the games that are the same games with a new skin applied on top. If I was to play Shadow of the Collosus, I'd be like "wow they made that fur work on ps2? Holy shit!" and I was playing Sotc PS4 i'd be like "wow average ps4 graphics, that's okay i guess".

>But Hollywood remakes are considered terrible.
Not always, that's more of a recent development with how shitty hollywood is now. Off the top of my head, The Fly and Little Shop of Horrors are considered to be at least as good if not better then the originals.

>If I was to play Shadow of the Collosus, I'd be like "wow they made that fur work on ps2? Holy shit!" and I was playing Sotc PS4 i'd be like "wow average ps4 graphics, that's okay i guess".

I can see where you're coming from, especially when they do a graphical 'reimagining' of a game that's only 1 or 2 generations old- something like SotC already looked fantastic, it doesn't really need or benefit from any improvements and it only detracts from the original technological achievement the game represented. But the game in your examples that stood out to me was Spyro- that one was so massively transformed by the updated art style that it basically feels like an entirely new game, and I don't mind seeing other things from the PS1/N64 era or before given this sort of intensive face lift. You're still losing the perspective on technology, since the original was a technical beast for the time but the new one is only on par with every other AAA game, but the radically re-imagined art style justifies its existence to me.


File: 1625022033020.jpg (1.56 MB, 1766x2403, 18256opn2o831.jpg)

I've never actually played Spyro but I brought it up because I've heard people complain about art style changes like this https://old.reddit.com/r/Spyro/comments/c9shl4/i_know_im_going_to_sound_nitpicking_and_unpopular/

Personally, If I was to get into the Spyro games today I'd definitely go for the original ps1 games first and probably not even touch remakes (like I did with yakuza but then it died sadly).

And the movies you brought up are similar to my examples with The Thing, as in, completely remade movies. Imagine if The Fly was a shot for shot remake with every single line of dialog remaining the same, every camera angle the same and the new actors trying as hard as they can to mimic the way old actors talked. That's how I perceive remakes of Demon's Souls, Halo, Sotc etc


>The original still exists
I also wanted to make a point about this. The original doesn't always really exist. Like with Demon's souls. They remade it for the ps5 but only with new graphics. What if I want to play the original, I now have to go and get a console from 2006 and a copy of 12 year old game. And the digital store on ps3 won't always be available (they even shut it down earlier this year but restored it but it still means it could be gone at any time). And the servers for the game going to get shutdown at some point. Sure there's emulation but the answer to play the original version shouldn't be "like bro just acquire the copy somehow probably illegally and then an illegal copy of bios or dump it yourself". If they're doing these remake at least it would be great to have an original version as well (preferably patched to unlock fps and stuff too).

excellent game
SEGA was so good back then


the only games I had as a kid were phantasy star 4 (never heard of the other games) and battle toads with X-Men characteristics.

still hold up uh yup

Why can't it be like Minecraft or GTA or Sims? I just wanted some sex mods


just watch porn lol


It just works, anon


Aren't there already Skyrim mods for that?


its not complicated, its annoying and a bit unstable so you have to plan your playthrough and make a modlist you'll stick to till the end. its generally a bad idea to remove a mod mid-playthrough.
as for minecraft yeah its kind of easier but it has the insufferable "mod is only compatable with one version" shit, which is why mod authors just can't keep up with the endless stream of new bullshit updates and a lot of good mods get abandoned.

I didn't know these guys, but I watched this video, and even though I laughed at most of the jokes shitting on the E3 and game companies, I don't like the fact that they're massive consoomers anyway.


How else do you distract yourself from the inevitable doom that awaits you? No ethical consumption, etc.

>I have wanted to write this post for a little while, but kept putting it off. I will try to keep it brief.

>The viewing figures for The Infinite Review have been steadily declining for a while now. Maybe it's the algorithm, maybe it's the rise of tiktok or vtubers, maybe I am simply not as entertaining anymore. Whatever the reason, it is discouraging. I know it's unwise to judge the worth of ones work on Internet Numbers, but the rate of decline is stark enough to make me worry about reaching a point where I question if it's worth making these videos at all. Don't get me wrong, I never saw the channel as something that would grow to dizzying heights, but I did hope to at least maintain the modest audience I had - and lately it feels as though I've been failing to do that.

>And this is why I want to you all how much the patreon support means to me. It's so easy to sound disingenuous when you're a youtuber saying things like this, but honestly: there simply would not be any videos or podcasts without you. This patreon remains an anomaly. It frankly should not have this much support when you look at how small my channel is. And while the diminishing views on the videos can be disheartening, the patreon reminds me that even if my audience is small, it's a dedicated one that truly enjoys what I am doing, and that means the world to me.

>Even though I'm a little embarrassed writing all this, I would feel much worse about not saying it. So there you go, it's off my chest for now. Thank you all again so very much. There are lots more Infinite Reviews planned and hope you'll enjoy and share them with others.

Why yes, I don't like kiwifarms because the ammount of labels that overlap my identity have a pattern of having crazy people and it makes me weirded out

I don't personally knew the nes emulator creator but I'll prettend i care about them as long as I get the site that might target me out of the internet


Their userbase is full of obsessed furries, trans people, autists, Nazis, NEETs, creeps and every kind of person they hate. They even acknowlege that themselves, obviously they just bully and shit on certain individuals to feel superior in some way, like "I know I'm an autistic trans furry, but at least I'm not like those autistic trans furries!" Self-loathing definitely plays a role there, and they're fully aware of the fact that, if their identity and internet history was to be revealed, they too would be featured in their site.

Your point stands strong, since that's quite literally what happens! It's so sad to see the hypocrisy at play, but it also goes to show how vulnerable they can be once you take that mask off.

For those not in the know "CIA uyghur" is the person who made the thread on byuu in the first place, essentially being the catalyst of this shitstorm, but now they have their own thread, and have had so since the beginning of the new year. Hilarious as it is tragic!! kiwi's are the oroboros of lolcows, like poetry, they play themselves. There are other examples like them,but this one should be enough.
