What is your opinion on proliferation of porn games on mainstream gaming platforms?

Like when I first saw shit that I am used to downloading off F95zone popping up on Steam and GoG I got weirded out, but then I though about it and its probably for the best, maybe this will encourage higher quality games rather than shovelware trash dominating the industry currently.

Why does no one point out the fact that the main reason for changing the war system is PROBABLY to improve game performance.

Is Vic3 more expensive than other PDX games or something? Lots of complaining about the prices happening on the various forums rn, not that I blame them but Im just wondering whats changed.

 No.21813

I think the game is gonna suck tbh. Weeks ago I watched someone play a few series of the leaked game with the most up to date community patch in several different countries on youtube before he got banned and it just didn't look that interesting, I pretty much lost interest after seeing them.
Every nation is basically the same except the numbers are different, which I know being a video game you could be pedantic and say the same is true for Vic2, but Vic2 definitely had a "feel" to every country. Like in Vic2 you could play as Serbia and get taken for a wild ride, in Vic3 you play as Serbia and lose if you try and do anything because you lose any war with a neighbor because it's automated and they just squash you.
It's overly micromanagey with literally everything in the economy needing to be held by the hand and rivals Vic2's awful stack management, although I think this is one thing that will hopefully be drastically improved before release. What makes this more annoying is the whole discussion is full of retards who like the war changes because stack management was a nightmare, as if you couldn't just fucking change that instead.
Another change is that the new interest groups are unengaging, you just make a government out of the people who support the stuff you want to pass and then do it. There's no real struggle with anyone or anything, and if there is then it's a foregone conclusion of who will win that struggle. The player is empowered in places it's annoying like the economy, or in putting together a government where it's boring, and disempowered in things like war where the performance decides if you actually get to advance the game.
Also the map colors and shading look shit, and the war graphics look atrocious

>>21808
It's most likely because they're woefully incompetent at programming AI, which would also explain the lack of capitalists. Although I suppose it ties into performance.

Literally how tf did the game die so fucking quickly???
It’s not even like a failed AAA release or anything. It just came out and died instantly just like that…
For reference here’s cyberpunk and fo76 to realize how fucking extreme of a drop that is

How do game designers balance games?

 No.23745

They don't. They make a list of cool stuff and let the players run wild. The players come up with meta builds and optimize the crap out of what's available and then the devs take in that data and buff and nerf based on what's overpowered and underpowered.

That said, there is one quirk exclusive to live service games.
For live service games, new weapons/cards/heroes/etc. are always overpowered on release and locked behind a progression system to encourage people to spend money to buy the latest stuff, and nerfed back to their original intended levels later. It's a neat bait and switch tactic that a lot of companies use now.

for quite some time, crypto miners were jacking up the prices of GPUs. Ethereum, of course, is now proof of stake, not proof of work, so a lot of the demand is gone, and perhaps we'll see GPU prices drop.

Is it actually selling for 1500 USD RSP tho? wtf? I wonder how much the other models will be. Let alone after the presales are over. Are there benchmarks to compare to the 3000 series yet? There was 3090ti on sale for like 1000 USD a couple weeks ago. I thought it was power draw reduction and only slight performance boost in some applications with the ai predicting frames stuff.

Not that anon, but yeah. Also to criticize your >>21746, sure everything will eventually break just as the universe will die one day, but of the now and not so crazy far future, you can always just keep adapting.

Sure that copy NieR:Automata will go bad one day, but then you just use another copy. As long as you have the interest of backing things up, it can still live in your and future life times.

There was an abortion of a thread in the main leftypol. This is for discussing W40k from a leftist reading, sort of Sigmarxist lite.

Interestingly enough, first, the Imperium is actually a great deconstruction of how booj and sheeple in the first world can justify their imperialism and inhumanity. Basically, you have folk justifying child soldiers, lobotomizing dissidents, etc, just because if they didn't do it, either AI or Xenos would overrun the Imperium.

A second focus of conversation might be Genestealer Cults as a deconstruction of proletarian revolts.

Realistically everyone would prefer to only think of the immediate positive implications of orgies but certain people would be more likely to try to figure out whether living like that long-term would be worth the planet-wide cannibalization of everything living there wrt the sexiness of the immediate situation…

i actually assume the men get cut out of GSC; the GSC men are more lotharios whose job is to knock up uninfected women.

Women, on the other hand, end up getting bred by hybrids etc, to provide the appropriate generation of hybrid required.

I’ve never liked war hammer
Not because of its lore but because of its aesthetics making the lore look really childish. Like think about it
The imperial guard being dressed in conventional uniforms with supplies and camos only to then have space marines and templars look like football players with gas masks running around
Or the orks being generally scrappy but dangerous but then being accompanied by weapons and gear that look so undeniably “toy like” it doesn’t feel scrappy at all, much less resemble a piece of equipment. Or just the fact that they’re green instead of fleshy like the master from fallout 1 which would make them much creepier
The tyranids are alright though they’re genuinely the only normal looking faction lore wise
But you get my point. I really hate the art design being to colourful and cartoonish compared to the writing

there are exceptions to the rule, especially with 9E, but it does make more sense to see space marines as less supersoldiers and more super-football hooligans
