I miss well-optimized video games. Now because processing power keeps increasing nobody in the industry cares.

I had no idea there was such a thing

Same, worst example for me being the Pokémon games (it's all barely catchy synth-orchestral shit now)


This is random

I'm pretty sure most modern game developers write little scripts for an old crufty engine, that gets barely enough patches.
Most money is likely spent on highres models and marketing.
Even new low-level stuff is probably written in C++ with boost libs.
Just look at how poor of a performance Pokemon games can get away with https://old.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/bzw5pk/gamefreak_optimization_problems/


So… indie games?

So I'm not an experienced game developer or anything, but I figured we should have a general dedicated to this sort of thing, especially since I'm interested to hear peoples' ideas on lefty-orientated videogames that would be cool for me to make.
I've been using Blender since I was 11 or 12 years old (I'm 20 now) so I'm pretty much at a level now where I can model any game asset I want. I'm also in school for Computer Engineering, and have been a hobby programmer since I was around 14 working with Python, C, and GLSL shaders, so I can script pretty much anything as well. I would say my main weaknesses when approaching a task like this are Sculpting, Spriting, and Painting, so to any drawfags/artfags with skills: I invite you to contribute on whatever projects we end up embarking on.

Lots of patreon projects use this model but it essentially boils down to donations, most people would just wait for the free version


Yes, yes, nothing if fair under capitalism, the issue now is how to entice people to donate/subscribe for the latest version.
and deobfuscating it will be a chore later on.
I thought of just removing the code for the easter eggs and making the officially compiled version of the game different from the one people can compile from source but that's even more dishonest and an even harder job.


Realistically nothing can stop people pirating your game if they really want to, you may as well just make all versions open source even if you do paywall them


bumping this shit


So relying on donations would be the best way to go? I mean, that's basically what many indie devs on itch.io do with the "pay what you want" model

I skip the sex parts in eroge to get back to the plot like in Rance, Fate or Monster Girl Quest.

Clannad is about life.


>Monster Girl Quest

Yeah, right.


I do that sometimes, but I'd never consider skipping the sex in a nukige.


Well, obviously. But people forget there's different kinds of eroge.


The porn is crap, but the plot is pretty good
And Paradox has nice gameplay

Knights of the Dinner Table is and was the only genuinely good RPG humor.

Not like that precludes them being in a relationship among furry degenerates, but no, they aren't.

>inb4 'lol paying for games'

Yeah yeah, true, but a lot of these games are obscure enough that it will be a pain in the ass to pirate them and anyway, it's for a good cause, you literally get 1272 games, there's gonna be something you like.

I guess relatively so sure, more legal aid is always good


>implying this will do anything against the billions Israel gets every year


I don't think this bundle is going to save Palestine, but it's games for next to no cost and you are helping Palestine at least a tiny amount. I don't see the big deal.


>Yes 30 min means 30 minutes


You go back to /pol/ and stay there Nazionist faggot

Call of Duty Cold War "Bad" Ending

Perseus is also the ultimate daddy.


I heard a lot of the "Soviets are heartless retards" shit is actually recycled from shit Tarist Russia actually did, but I'm no expert.


Oh definitely, I don't think it ever got as bad as not giving soldiers guns, but in WW1 morale among Russian soldiers was rock bottom for reasons such as not being given replacement boots and having to wear ones with holes in them for months (in snow and slush).


Wow apparently that is actually true about the guns:

"By December, 1914, the Russian Army had 6,553,000 men. However, they only had 4,652,000 rifles. Untrained troops were ordered into battle without adequate arms or ammunition. "Untrained troops were ordered into battle without adequate arms or ammunition. And because the Russian Army had about one surgeon for every 10,000 men, many wounded of its soldiers died from wounds that would have been treated on the Western Front. With medical staff spread out across a 500 mile front, the likelihood of any Russian soldier receiving any medical treatment was close to zero". (12)

Tsar Nicholas II decided to replace Grand Duke Nikolai as supreme commander of the Russian Army fighting on the Eastern Front. He was disturbed when he received the following information from General Alexei Brusilov: "In recent battles a third of the men had no rifles. These poor devils had to wait patiently until their comrades fell before their eyes and they could pick up weapons. The army is drowning in its own blood." (13)"


Now I'm wondering how this got recycled into EATG. I love that movie still, even though the politics of it are revolting. A lot like the movie Patton was ruined for me after finding out that the man himself was essentially a fascist.

Was he based? It seems like he was a flawed individual that did his best until he went mad. By the time of RDR2 the gang was already well past it's prime. To me Hosea seemed more so the wise one of the two. Sure Arthur understood the Pinkertons were pawns of the capitalists. Nonetheless he still thought the gang were the bad guys, maybe worse than the capitalists. He particularly despised the usury practices of Strauss and Micah's killing of innocents but went along anyways. There's also the influence the fictional writer Evelyn Miller had on Dutch's supposed ideology. Funny enough Miller admits he's an urbanite hack in side missions and ends up killing himself in the last one. The anti-civilization ideology Arthur and i assume Dutch hold is hardly expanded upon but I'm sure there's real world examples of the era the developers drew from. Despite this their gang seems to be the most civilized out of the enemy ones encountered in the game. So what's the conclusion? Was he just a caricature of leftism the same way Reyes was in the first game or something else?

Yeah lmao my bad

Yeah and its not even close. RDR1 is still a great game it's just living in RDR2's shadow now

>mfw I'm trying to grind for the Legend of the East Outfit while still in Chapter 2, because the Outfit is made for Arthur


I think the only vaguely leftist Character in RDR2 is Javier, who escaped Mexico, because of his Revolutionary Activity. People from Rockstar wanted to lump him into the broader Zapatista Movement I think


I don't know if I have ever seen cringe like this before



Why is the american frontier clouded in such mystery, while other historical frontiers rarely get mentioned at all? I mean this has been a thing before hollywood and mass media

General for 4X games, but also an opportunity to introduce you all to a new game called Shadow Empire.

The game has an incredibly deep planet generation system that affects gameplay massively, including rotation of the planet (lol), makeup of the atmosphere, terrain, mineral deposits and alien life. It also has a logistics system to make you supply your units with food and ammunition, if they run out of supply they'll be very weak so you need to keep expanding the supply lines to the front and also making sure the enemy cannot cut you off. Obviously being encircled is very bad news for your troops.

You start as a minor "Regime" and your goal is to conquer the planet after the previous galaxy wide regime collapsed sending most of it into civil war and apocalypse. Each regime can be run differently and has different perks based on decisions you make throughout the game. For example if people start striking you can send in the army to deal with them (autocracy) or just pay them off (democracy), alternatively you can avoid the situation entirely by administrating the zones well, but that may lead to other troubles like a lack of credits for purchasing resources. You can run a mix of different systems so your decisions aren't set in stone for you but there are bonuses to always picking a certain method like unique units and stratagems, which are like ideological playing cards.

I played it years ago, seems like it's come a long way though


Redpill me on Alpha Centauri. What's the plot?


Earth is dying due to an unspecified event/series of events (climate change is an obvious one, but perhaps resource depletion, perpetual war, some fantastical event), the UN loads up a colony ship to blast off to the Alpha Centauri system, on approach to the system the captain is murdered, a civil war ensues on the ship over who should take charge which causes it to begin to break apart, the various factions escape in drop pods to the surface of the target planet, then they try to re-establish human civilisation. Honestly anon I recommend you just play it, it even has these cool interstitial bits of text that fill in more 'human interest' stuff about what your leader/your society does as events in the game transpire.


Humanity then realizes that the planet is fighting back while giving you agonizing mental terror, ancient philosophical questions can be solved, and in the expansion, human rights don't apply to aliens. Nerve gas is the only solution to genocidal aliens with superior tech and ridiculous bonuses. But they will be happy if you're running a planned economy.

If you play as Santiago, people will call you a right-wing lunatic. She was based on burgerstani survivalist groups and social darwinism + LatAm fascism. Nothing stops her from running a planned economy and having Morgan call her a communist, but she's also definitely about the eugenics and turn-the-dead-into-a-hovertank.

Also, the irony about "superior training and weaponry" Santiago is that no matter how good her military is, she has a logistical disadvantage from her industry penalty. She's the best skirmisher in the game, but isn't equipped for a full war like the others are.

You ivory tower intellectuals must not lose touch with the world of industrial growth and hard currency. It is all very well and good to pursue these high-minded scientific theories, but research grants are expensive and you must justify your existence by providing not only knowledge, but concrete and profitable applications as well.

Is it worth the money to get a Vita and homebrew it?


Sure. I think the memory cards are still overpriced though
