This board has become boring as fuck due to all the goddamn LARPers who won't talk about anything unless they can role-play as leftists in it. To rectify this situation, let's talk about some of our favorite white-knuckle thrills. Are you a hardcore action gamer, anon?


this board's traffic is just too low, it's like trying to have game discussion through gas station bathroom scrawls.

Any of you guys play the objectively best board game around?

Any alliances better than R/T?


>tfw you need friends to play board games with
deal breaker :(


old ass thread but Austria Italy is certainly a match for Russia Turkey assuming the other powers aren't interfering with the east. Also western triple is the strongest alliance that is actually realistic in the average game (i.e. the players can actually stay allied through to the end game)


The online community for Diplomacy is vibrant tho. You can find different people to play against on web Diplomacy every day. It's not nearly as fun as playing with friends in my experience but it's still 8/10

It's almost been 4 years since Square Enix stopped production of the series, leaving it on the biggest cliffhanger imaginable.

Will the series ever get picked up again? And if so, do you think the original plans will have been abandoned?

I find it's pretty much necessary to savescum in this due to the janky rng stealth mechanics.


SE are known for fucking over anything that isn't the latest passion project from the same clique, shit just got even worse for gaijins.
Nier Automata only got made because the Dragon Quest producer threatened to leave, Kawazu spent almost a decade (or a decade if you don't count The Last Remmant) in gacha hell until he was able to make a new game, and Yoshida's team keeps getting money and manpower siphoned away even after saving the Final Fantasy brand.


Anybody have the secret society political compass? It has illuminati on authleft, bilderberg on center, templars on authright, masons on libright and the reason i wanna see it again is because i forgot what libleft is


Just use the Chinese dragon sword and it becomes a lot easier


>It's a real shame the gaming community overlooked it over some stupid memes like it being 2 hours long (when it's the longest Deus Ex game).
It didn’t feel short just really inconclusive. Too many loose ends. When I heard it was originally meant to be a two part series, everything made so much sense.

Mindustry. You should try it, industry based tower-defence game that is free software released under the GPL. It has a following in the tens of thousands.

Also, hoi4 absolute ripoff you need all the DLCS (except death or dishonor) to actually make this game enjoyable and even then it is just shit.


Thats standard paradox practise, the secret is to just either pirate the DLCs or grab them when they inevitably give them away in a humble bundle (be sure to set the slider to maximum charity)


good choice. the infamous WP section was such a moral and narrative cop-out from the studio, but I enjoyed it until the end as well. Apocalypse Now is still the best piece of fiction dealing with that subject matter, in my opinion.


File: 1608528060712.jpg (14.24 KB, 848x480, rgbzue9wtg451.jpg)

CoD Warzone, csgo and eu4.


I find the WP scene works better if you view it primarily as a criticism of the death from above section in modern shooters. The original plan to have the game diverge by allowing you to not do it would have undermined the point it ended up making about how these segments in the shooters of the time were railroading you into committing atrocities and then patting you on the back for it.
Its also the first major point where Walker diverges from just being the self insert and becomes the deconstructed military shooter protagonist with some aspects of the kind of person that plays military shooters left in which is why you see the "its guilting me for something the game made me do", it only attacks Walker the character for doing it, the guilt trip loading screen messages are aimed at the player for picking up a game where you shoot foreigners for entertainment in the first place.
The best part of the scene in my mind is the immediately after where he's attacking the un-mortared command centre of the gate and desperately hoping for some secret revelation because in a regular game of the type they would stick some meaning to justify what just happened instead it was for nought.

I do find it interesting how hyperfocused people become on that scene, its far from the only atrocity you commit in the game (I think the aquatic Colosseum is far better executed too) but I suppose most people just block out the fact that they gunned down refugees or slaughtered masses of deserter soldiers so they can make more refugees die of thirst because theres no burned baby at the end.

>Apocalypse Now is still the best piece of fiction dealing with that subject matter

I agree there, it really captures the spirit of the book which the game pretty much doesn't beyond the descent into madness and critique of something that was popular in society at the time.

So its a recently released Dark Fantasy RPG made by an Indie developer. Really fits mobile well if they could do it.

Takes place in a pandemic ridden setting, full version released late last month.

"Plunge into the Lawless Lands of Crossia, a once great kingdom where chaos slowly consumes more and more of the country. The cities have plummeted into poverty and crime, and the surrounding countryside is littered with famine and death. The army is close to collapse from an ever-lasting war and cannot stop the spread of the disorder. Hope is almost nonexistent, restoring order is believed to be futile, and panic lingers everywhere. Take on the role of a champion who rises from the ashes to end the suffering."

God, the chud outrage over the devs mentioning Marx during an award show was so infantile and moronic. They endlessly rave about "SJWs" and then act just as thin-skinned and emotive, if not more so. I mean, for fuck's sake, look at the intellectual caliber of the people leaving furious comments on this video:
>"They should go back and see how it was living under Soviet rule."
>"That's like thanking Adolf Hitler for political education. Fuck these psychos."
It wouldn't get to me so much if these dull shithead pedants actually knew who any of the people the devs mentioned are other than Marx, as I recall Viktor Tsoi was a critic of the Soviet government.

Ok, I have tried it out now. Haven't yet properly sunk teeth in, but have a good look. It looks really solid. My complaint about lifestyles wasn't waranted, they work fine and you can switch between most of them, though I do worry that this might create "meta builds". Also I was mistaken, there are practically no EU4-ification. Schemes at worst can resemble the dice roll sieges, but that was basically the same in CK2, except now there is a UI element to show this. Otherwise the game seems like CK2+, just a general all-round upgrade along with new stuff.
But there is one niggle. The UI feels bad. Maybe I was too used to CK2, but the new one feels bad. It's too spread out: character, dynasties, religion and culture in one bottom corner, currencies in the opposite top corner and all the rest important panels down from there. I guess I'll just have to learn to use the hotkeys, but why the hell couldn't it just be all together in the bottom with the character, or the same as in CK2 - at the top, like in every single other PDX game.

Another shitty UI problem - army counter doesn't at all correspond to where the army actually is, so it results in me clicking the wrong provinces thinking that the army is in the one where the bar is. Also they decided to move the different holdings out of a single abstract bar representing the province and instead onto the map itself, which is extremely shitty to use, clutters the map and only adds aesthetic value. Picrel explains better I think.
The game is great, but the UI is total dogshit.

So starting as some duke in France in 867 I got the highest score on a crusade in 955 and someone from my house that I randomly picked as benefactor got rewarded the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

The game then asked me if I want to play as him instead and I said yes. Had the decision of converting to local culture and Muslim and I did. Swore fealty to the Abbasid Caliphate afterwards, won several crusades against troops led by people from my own dynasty but Catholic, and later claimed the throne of Abbasid in 1098.

After that I put the game on observer mode and went to sleep and woke up to world being in 1723.

How has nobody posted this yet? It is developed by a Chinese indie studio named ‘Game Science’. From the looks of it it's a Soulsborne inspired action adventure game. I think the artstyle is great it looks absolutely gorgeous as well.

What do you guys think of this? Is this finally a response to everyone that says commies kill muh vidya?

No, sorry. Soulsborne games are shit fam.


Imagine a Panthay Rebellion game, basically a Muslim led secular regime parallel to the Taiping


Do you remember the name of the game?


They LOVE fantasy shit. I can't even count the number of fantasy dramas that are coming out over there. They're long as fuck too.

>no Xuanzang or his juniors
Literally what is the point of making a Wukong game if you aren't going to tie it with Journey to the West? That is like making a game about Odysseus after he reached his home.

At least start the story about how he became a king, got his staff, anger the gods and found penance from the Goddess of Mercy.
