I just started playing the original Deus Ex after watching Sseth's video on it recently, and I'm hooked. I played the new games a couple years which were also great, they introduced me to Cyberpunk. Thoughts on the series?

>>2480>They have loose threads that won't be resolved until the sequel/followup, so why do you treat Mankind Divided differently?I don't like Witcher 2, but one problem it didn't have was this one. The story within the game was done well enough that ending it on a cliffhanger didn't bother anyone. Mankind Divided dropped the ball, and very clearly for trying to squeeze as much as they could out of fans. I've only played through it twice, and in one "session" so maybe i'll lighten up on it if I ever replay it, but I don't feel an urge to. Whereas with every other game in the series I have gone back to multiple times. It wasn't awful, I had fun playing it, it just wasn't at the level of the rest of them.

Does Deus Ex (2000) actually hold up? Not really speaking from a gameplay perspective which I don't care about, but more story and dialogue-wise.
From what I can gather the whole story is basically a hackeyed collection of le ebin X-files tier conspiracy theories except they're TRUE :O but maybe there's more to it and it's actually worth playing. Got to Chinatown last time I played the game and I don't remember being terribly impressed, but maybe I should give it another go?

> le ebin X-files tier conspiracy theories
&ltImplying this is a bad thing
X Files is the greatest show ever made, and its conspiracies are great - and frequently anti-US government.

Anyway, the story in Deus Ex is just a fun conspiracy romp. What makes it stand out is its themes. Whilst the major theme of the game is about the role of technology (e.g. as a replacement for God) it explores many more.
It's different to the later games in that it covers a very large number of themes, whilst the newer games cover a smaller number in greater depth.
There's no game like the original (and the series) so well worth playing.

>melee weapons(aim for the back
Works half of the time. HAving to save/reload every time I wanted to whack someone with a baton is why I dropped this early. Also, sleeper crossbow is completely useless because enemies stay awake for a good ten seconds during which they'll warn everyone.

Been trying to play this game and I can't even get beyond the second level. What's the deal with bullet hells. Why can't I play them? I want to be a bad ass at them, but, they seem impossible! Give me advice, /games/.

There's Steam Hearts and Yakouga too. Ero-STDs aren't too common because they don't usually work out well, going from a high octane shooting thrill to an abrupt H-scene for fapping.

We have a HoI4 thread but why not just have a Grand Strategy general thread? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people here who play the other grand stratgy games/think hoi4 is too dumbed down shit. Plus /gsg/ on 4chan is infected with /pol/yps and I really want an alternative place to discuss the games. So what's everyone been playing? Here's the results of my recent Serbia to Yugoslavia campaign.

Real shit.

>wut an STG

STGs is another term for shoot 'em up/shmup (though typically used for Japanese made ones), all of which kick ass.

>didnae die???

No, though we came close. STGs have been kept alive in no small part by doujins, which has led to such awesome games as Crimzon Clover, Blue Wish, Hellsinker, and Blue Revolver, and the players who have been documenting, replaying, and scoring since the early days.

eXceed 2nd - Vampire REX is super fun, short but sweet. Basically Touhou + the color-swapping mechanic from Ikaruga, satisfying melee, and vampire lolis. The dynamic difficulty is nice for scrubs like me, it increases if you go long enough without getting hit and drops when you die.

You can't go wrong with playing them as originally intended: NES, SNES, and GBA.
Most people start with 2, go to 3, and 1 is usually an afterthought because of the grind.

I personally suggest playing 1 via the 1+2 remake for GBA, but that's just me.

No and it's about the only thing that would make the game better. There is no collective workers struggle that topples the Pigmasks, it revolved around 2 psychic kids, a dog and a neet finding enough mcguffins.
It is the most outwardly anti-capitalist game I've ever played though, and probably the best JRPG ever made in regards to the system it came out on. Like, they pretty accurately depicted the carrots and sticks of imperialism, they never try to portray capitalism as anything but "when things got shitty", reform isn't even on the table because any half measure would still be barbaric compared to what the Nowhere Islands were before.
Even the personal stories the characters go through have a strong anti-reactionary bent. The entire chapter with Flint shows just how hollow and useless petty revenge against an exploited group is, but it never hesitates to show that all violence carried out against the Pig Mask Army is absolutely fucking justified.
One of my biggest frustrations with other supposed anti-capitalist games is that they try to suggest that whatever self-defense against capitalism is taken is just as brutal as capitalism itself, The Outer Worlds being the first example that comes to my head. The only time Mother 3 comes anywhere close towards that would be the ending, and even then between the way the events play out and the story that led up to it, totally justified.
Also the Pig Masks are the perfect fascists. They show up as police a lot of the time, and do "police shit" (protect capital). They're threatening with their tech and fetish for violence, but they're also a bunch of fat dipshits who bumble around in an amusing way.spurdoSpurdo

What comes close to a revolution, I think, is the Dragon's awakening. It destroys, but also has the potential to rebuild, depending on the person who pulls the needles. And to get rid of Porky's empire it has to be completely destroyed. Most of the characters who learned about the Dragon and the needles supported Lucas.

Talking about TNO I found a supposed leak detailing the L-NPP paths, despite the lib bias of the devs Gus still seems pretty based. Plus it also has the 1976 and 1980 L-NPP candidates.

>At this stage, mass prosecution of the upper class will begin, now that the courts are sufficiently saturated with L-NPP appointees. Hall’s FBI director will have assembled lists and evidence on the illicit gains of the American wealthy, and, starting all at once, mass arrests will be carried out of the most unsavory individuals. This is a crisis as well, as this upheaval causes capital flight from the United States,which Hall can react to in a variety of ways - including shooting down private planes.

I'm an Eastern Euro who has never seen a console or a controler IRL, so I have to ask, are the FF games actually great, or is it one big circlejerk by and for western Nintendo fanboys who want to nostalgiajerk over their okayish childhood games like ot is with Ocharina of Time or Banzo Kazooey?

For a big part: yes. Though, the games that are respected are genuinely good, even if not nearly as good as fans make it out to be ( whenever is that not the case?)
Final Fantasy 6, 7 and 9 I can recommend to anyone. 9 being the best of them, despite the hilariously blunt ending. Final Fantasy 1 was a milestone, but unplayable by todays standards in its raw form, don't even bother.

Sup comrades. Who here is a fan of the Metal Gear games? It's got strong anti-imperialist and anti-war themes and one of the games (Peace Walker) pretty much has you playing as Che Guevara. Which game do you like best? My favourite would be MGS3.

the first three MGS game are DIMES, just perfect video games.

I'm currently trying to play the old MSX games, MG1 was shit honestly but I hear MG2 is better. Both old came have an awesome super late cold war vibe though as they were made RIGHT before the fall of USSR. The cover art for MG2 is so awesome I even got a poster of it.

Redpill me on MGS4.
I sat through that awful shit and I cannot believe it has zero subtext or preachy Kojimmy shit, because it feels like a mush of fanservice and pandering that attempts to wrap up every single plot point in the most contrived and absurd way possible (and then shits up that in the ending too).

 No.1537

MGS4 is an odd beast. It has both the highest highs and lowest lows of the series. Piloting Rex, the final fight, most of the other boss fights, and chapter 1 and 2 are amazing.

But I never understood why people say it is fanservice. It is fandiservice if anything. Snake being an old man for no good reason instead of in his prime, Meryl marrying mr poopy pants, dumb shit like Mount Snakemoore.

MGS4 is weird.
