Wait which one? I don't remember any WW2 CoD that let you do that beyond standard multiplayer factions. The only one that actually included the Japs was WaW which had the reverse in the campaign.

In VC:Stories you are a soldier who goes against his corrupt superior.
Though in this case it is depicted as a "bad apple" and not as a systemic problem as it is irl.

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.

I haven't played it in years but it's fucking based. Glad to hear you're working on it.

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. :)

Honestly can't believe I'm happy an MMO dev is in charge of this. That's how bad FF has gotten. Literally the only half-decent part of the franchise in recent years are the shitty MMOs.

Here are three puzzle games for the Nintendo Entertainment System made by enthusiasts in the 21st century that you can play in emulator for free. In each of these titles the level is a single screen.

[b]Multidude[/b]: Side-view. Guide the dudes to the exit doors (each dude uses up one exit because video-game logic). The dudes have different abilities: One can shove blocks, one can fly and so on. They can also climb on top of each other. http://www.retrosouls.net/?p=824

[b]Alter Ego[/b]: Side-view. (Not to be confused with an old classic of the same name that goes through a life in fast forward and asks you questions.) You have a phantom buddy that mirrors your movement and you can switch places at the press of a button. You finish a level by collecting all purple pieces and sometimes also green pieces that only your phantom buddy can collect). http://www.retrosouls.net/?p=468

[b]Gruniozerca 3[/b]: Top-down view. Destroy all blocks and make it to the exit. There are different types of blocks like teleporters and exploding ones that damage their surroundings. There is also a carrot item that gives you the ability to jump over block-width gaps for the duration of the rest of the level. https://mteegfx.itch.io/grunio3

I found Multidude really bland at first compared to Alter Ego. There is no music and everything looks the same. But the later levels get really tough, which makes it memorable. Alter Ego has changes music and graphics every couple levels, but this the regular makeover in presentation isn't accompanied by new mechanics (how about some switches or enemies that only hurt your phantom buddy?). Getting through a level in Alter Ego is a matter of seconds, even the last level. The later levels in Multidude get really tough. It happened several times that I started a Multidude level before going to work and failed to solve it, thought about it while at work instead of whatever I was supposed to pay attention to, and then solved it after going home. The last level of Multidude is some maddening stuff with the exits high in the sky and you have to build a structure to reach them without trapping yourself.

Gruniozerca 3 also gets tough in the later levels, but when you fail a level a Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

There seems to be a bit of a war that went on between the SJW and GG boys back in the day about the topic and I was pretty interested in it suddenly since I play a fair few vidyas that could be said to be on the harder side.
That being said I think that the wank over difficulty is a bit pretentious at times.

I think there's exceptions, especially complex sims, strategy games, and the like. but for the most part if a person can't handle a game on the standard difficulty level they shouldn't even bother playing because they're not engaging with it in any meaningful way.

I think something also needs to be said about over-hard games, I'm talking battlefield 3 hard, no warning of enemies, quick ttk, that shit, because it exists and shouldn't be praised for being that hard, I'm not saying sekiro is too hard (never played it) but I think we should consider the other side of the problem

I'm not a "Soulsborne" fan per se, but I played Dark Souls for the first time just over a year ago and it enthralled me. There are just so many exciting moments in that game - the hellkite dragon, getting chased by a Black Knight, walking into the Undead Parish and getting hit by a beam of light from out of nowhere, fighting gaping Gaping Dragon, crossing Blight Town and then finding out you can just waltz on over to Firelink Shrine, chilling in Dukes Archives etc. The environment designs are really inspired. Playing DS1 brought back those feelings that I used to get playing Ocarina of Time all those years ago.

All other 'Souls-like' games seem uninspired in comparison. I unfortunately never got to play BB, but I did play Sekiro for a little bit and that just seems like a shit game to me.

Is it possible to just completely lose interest in video games? I know people who played substantially more than me during their adolescence, yet their appetite for gaming doesn't seem to diminish.
I don't think it's burnout because no amount of time away is affecting my interest.

A lot of video games are just a series of checklists that you fill out, or are empty vacant rooms that you're supposed to interact in.
This could be said about a lot of things though, but it is easy to start seeing multiple games of the same type as being too samey. There is also a lot of pressure to like games that you're "supposed" to like in order to be a based lord or whatever even if they aren't terribly appealing to your appetite.
