So we are getting both a nu-Doom prequel and Hexen spiritual successor, aren't we?

>after how they treated Mick Gordon


tl;dr version he got the "screw over the private contractor" treatment while making the music for Doom Eternal, including:
<nonsensical expectations (like writing music for levels that weren't even designed yet)
<rejecting submitted music for not being "good enough" but then using it anyway and not paying him for it
>not paying him in general (for almost a year)
>producing the OST release of the music without him, behind his back, and without his knowledge, but crediting him for it causing him to take the heat for it being poorly done
>Marty Stratton running to r/doom to post a hit piece slandering Gordon as lazy and entitled
>constantly jerked around and lied to by Marty in general
>Zenimax trying to force him to take a settlement on the condition that he would accept the reputational damage and own the sloppy OST release he wasn't even involved with
That's just some of the bigger stuff.
And this is how they treated a guy widely hailed as a visionary who majorly contributed to the success of the previous game. IDK maybe Marty got butthurt from the "they included a game with this album" jokes.

Mick Gordon's full statement, with receipts:


Damn, what a bunch of assholes. I haven't even played Doom Eternal yet I mostly know it for Gordon' amazing soundtrack, I hope they pay dearly for this.


It's probably the most iconic piece of video game music since, what, Snake Eater?


Mick Gordon still hasn't been paid for half the game if memory serves, and that's the actual in-game music. He didn't get paid at all for the OST release. Like he said, that's a whole separate product. The in-game music is basically a bunch of modular pieces that get arranged in real-time by an algorithm while you play the game, and the OST is a manual arrangement to try to get the best version of each piece. For the OST release he still made most of those pieces (the same pieces used by the game) but they were arranged and mastered by the sound designer Chad Mossholder IIRC.

Yeah and like I said, if they are doing this guy this dirty, how do they treat the rest of the workers? Who else on the project has the name recognition that people would even pay attention if they spoke up about something like this?

I’m playing far cry 2 with redux+ realism and I’m amazed by the level of immersion and sense of control I have over my time with it. The mod fully disables all in-game features to assist the players availing to navigate the map meaning your paper map and some screens showcasing your location is all you get to figure out where to go. I’ve navigated my way through several missions off my own accord, having to learn to be patient with outposts, run the fuck away from anything that looks like trouble and fight with barely any ammo is such a unique experience you can’t create in so many games. The world itself even without mods is beautiful and every hour I spend playing makes me feel like I’m genuinely apart of it, something you wouldn’t typically get from a non roleplaying game.

keep fighting the good fight, anon. I'm impressed at your perseverance, both with the game and with these updates! I'd usually have given both up by now.


It's the only Far Cry game I never played. Even played the OG once in the 00's, though I don't think I finished that one.


It is the best one by far, great example of video games as a storytelling medium. First one is its own thing, while all the ones after feel like progressively dumbed down and bloated up versions of 2. Even Far Cry 3, which seem to be most peoples favorite, is already too deep into Skinner box school of game design.


am playing this now, pretty good, but damn dunno why but it's so fucking laggy


Check if it runs on dedicated GPU, by default it was on integrated card for me.

Hey all, little schizospiracy theory

The Godot engine is a social experiment:
- Godot comes from the french "absurd theater" play "While waiting for Godot" where Godot represents God, and the point of the play is that Godot never comes, and the people waiting for him do absurd stuff while waiting for him, and cope with the fact he's not coming.
- The Godot game engine is very meh, especially considering the huge amount of traction it has. The leads are incompetent, and have no vision, no profesionnalism. The fo See https://waiting-for-blue-robot.gitlab.io/index.html for complete criticism. It's more of a cult than a community, and this is what i will build my next point on.
- The cult schizophrenically waits for the next version of the engine to fix everything wrong with it (just like in the piece: waiting for God: something very good, just like the next version of Godot according to them). While waiting, they boast about their objectively overrated engine, invent qualities to it, attack any critic (see future thread replies of angry godotcels), and engage in other ABSURD cult behaviour (in the play, they engage in such activites "While waiting for Godot")

Juan Linietsky, you're a comedic genius

just use anything non proprietary, it doesn't matter unless your budget is $10m+


Even if i'm a little indie studio or even alone, i'd rather have the best thing i can have.


>Even if i'm a little indie studio or even alone, i'd rather have the best thing i can have.
I mean, that's your preference. I'd rather avoid anything proprietary as much as possible.


Good argument, i'd prefer if the engine i used was not proprietary but there's better non proprietary engines than Godot.


>there's better non proprietary engines than Godot
Sure, of course, I'm all for using more polished and feature-rich libre software, lack of quality-of-life features only drags libre software down. Though still be sure to donate a couple dollars so the devs don't get upset and leave. But if Godot devs indeed don't deliver on their promises it is really a lost cause.

It actually looks like a pretty good game after skimming this video. I hope the combat will be more dangerous and punchy though and that the quest/dialogue aspect of the game which wasn't the focus the vid will be good.
Planned to release for September 6th, I think I'll pirate it on day one, or whenever empress does her magic if it's under Denuvo.
Well I would need a better PC, whenever I thought about upgrading my decade old machine to play releasing AAA titles such as Cyberpunk or Callisto Protocol I ended up not doing it because those games were shit, most of the big games recently were shit actually, hope Starfield breaks the trend.

absolute state of AAA god damn


This is how the life of a Sonic fan feels like, now every company will become Sonic Team, welcome to the club, buddy.

Creation Kit just dropped today. They also finally added melee weapon tiers and mods and ammo crafting. They're slowly ticking off things that I seriously disliked when I played through it but there's still a ways to go before I could recommend people try it, at least there's mods now to fill in the gaps. They showcased the new DLC in a different video too.




I was kind of intending this thread to be a storehouse of replies for

<hurrr but who would work without profit motive???? you ever thought about that commie?

where fans have for one reason or another put in a great deal of time and effort to maintain or recreate digital experiences.

For example, I stumbled on some videos for a fan recreation of TIE fighter which, from the clips of it, looks really neat. It seems like video related is a mod based off of another mod for the million year old X-wing Alliance engine. I need to look further into it and see if it's built off of the original game, or its own standalone deal meant to mimic it.

Then there's also Tamriel Reborn that seems like it isn't just a remake of the original, but actually expands on the original Morrowind, I guess to add back in all of the content that had to be cut. Apparently they've been going at it since 2001.


Then there's DOOM, which has just had an insane amount of work done on it and with it since it was released. It's actually pretty amazing to see what people are capable of doing with it after so long.

It’s so fucking nice.


I don’t know the relation of this mod with a similar project, but I tried Mantella with kobold and xvasynth and it works with both text and mic.


Just imagine the millions of dev hours that could have been used to create cool and fun single player games that instead went into yet another fucking moba/battle royale/open world survival/mmorpg


(I know everyone is entitled to like the kind of things that they like but many/most of these games are nothing but snowclones with no original ideas whatsoever that do nothing but try to turn their players into addicts)

TF2 players have more solidarity than the average American, people online are more willing to organize to save a video game than to unionize. Let that sink in

Safe tf2 has so much solidarity, this level of solidarity is unreal. It can't go any further.


How many more "consumer revolts" until Valve actually bothers updating TF2 again? (trick question!)


TF2 isn't even that much of a moneymaker compared to their other games and the updates have pretty much been automated for years, lol. There's literally zero incentive for Valve to bother with it. I mean they released a whole new separate FPS before touching TF2 again, so yeah, it's time to let go.


how can someone even 'revolt' over tf2? it's already f2p


That's the more ridiculous thing too. It's getting review-bombed but I don't know why Valve would even care about a game from 2009 they haven't properly updated in half a decade getting bad reviews by users.


(No idea where to post this but maybe this is the best place since its the most active board EVEN DOE there is games but probably noone goes there idk i dont use leftypol…)

I have been posting my progress around a couple websites and i'd want to add getchan, ponychan leftypol and lupchan into the mod but i need help with 3-6 national ideas for each nation and perhaps leaders.

Ive noticed the wiki had a lot of care put into it so maybe someone wants to help out with the mod, we will see if this thread gets any traction.

It looks like Ubisoft is being criticized once again.

What are your thoughts on the deliberate inclusion of racial diversity elements in games?

People detest overt political propaganda, especially when it undermines the artistic integrity of the literary work itself.

I personally believe this is an example of political intervention in culture by Western countries to mediate immigration conflicts. It is evident that population's importance to the economy is now paramount. With the significantly reduced birth rates among white people and immigrants no longer primarily coming from Europe, having actors on stage say a few lines like "Welcome African friends" and featuring some black actors seems to be a way to ease conflicts.

The anger in Asian regions seems particularly intense. Not only in Japan, but also in South Korea, Taiwan, and mainland China, there is noticeable criticism. In the context of rising nationalism globally, doing this appears to be a form of desecration (although the admiration for white culture and disdain for darker cultures in Asia seem quite common). I believe if they changed the character to a white samurai, the issue might be less severe. Oh, my, imagine an Italian missionary in Japan (who looks like a mix of Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Downey Jr.), wielding a katana engraved with Roman Catholic symbols, teaching Oda Nobunaga's army how to use advanced European weaponry, and eventually falling in love with a Japanese princess (1.55 meters tall), leaving behind symbols from another world during Japan's turbulent times. Isn't that cool? In China, if you created a comic about a German joining the Chinese army to resist Japan (preferably with the main character being a anime female with white hair and red eyes), it might be very popular. "My name is Feng Shilaiman, a Sino-German mixed race. My father graduated from Whampoa Military Academy, and my mother is the daughter of a German general." But if you changed the character to an African, many people would curse the author to have all-black children.

So, how would the left-wing comment on this? Political and capital interference in literature is indeed repulsive, but the racism it reveals is concerning.A more noticeable feature is that when Black people join, a lot of people say, "Can't you create your own African-themed content and add Black people?" But when White people join, no one says, "I hope to see White people only in European-themedPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

companies are just cynically pandering but if your genuinely pressed over black characters or women characters or whatever the fuck than your an actual fucking pussy and need to stop being a crybaby


A better duo would be actually organizing the proletariat. ;)


Grown ass men and women getting upset over aesthetic additions to video games is truly a sign of the times


being upset over culture isnt anything remotely new


People are not upset over aesthetics, they are upset over pandering and historical inaccuracies, even though these claims are not entirely valid. Though of course a black character was probably a mandate: it's a AAA publisher, their games are soulless cash grabs now.

In conclusion, fuck AAA publishers, I want their headquarters to be snapped out of existence.

Thank you. this will remain trapped in my mind.


>At least NitW has a call to action.
lol and the "call to action" in question is middle-class reform..

>communism is when adventurism
the hobby boards truly are at their best without brainlets trying to present pop culture as da epic commie content


Game gay and fun. If you want more communism le write fanfic


>adventurism is when you build an organized group of hundreds of people to take over the country
I mean it's more close to blanquism than anything


Absolutely dogshit post. Kill yourself.


A new Marathon game by Bungie has been announced… but it's a PVP extraction shooter. Who even wants this shit? With Bungie's experience they surely could have made a Doom 2016 or Wolfenstein New Order style re-imagining and pulled it off, but instead it's a cashgrab. Honestly what was I expecting considering all they've been making for the last decade is a franchise so shit it makes me want to blow my brains out playing it. It's a shame because the original Marathon games were great. Porky is going to be porky.

Extraction shooter is the new battle royale is the new survival crafter. Thanks to the Arma 2 zombie mods for starting this cancer.


Honestly maybe we're just the ones with the issue. I rarely play multiplayer because keeping a friend group active is too much effort for me. But maybe we're the weird ones for just wanting to play single player.


Let them cook tbh.


Problem isn’t even playing multiplayer games, gaming with friends is always a boon to my fun, but most looter-survival-extraction-shooters depend on that fun boost with friends to be barely playable, as the gameplay is repetitive and competitive play is encouraged. Playing solo, you’re at a disadvantage from the get-go, and it also gets boring quickly, cos without the chatting with friends as distraction you realize the looter shooter gameplay cycle is a total sham, the illusion collapses.

Singleplayer games are much better in that regard.
