What are the chances of random Japanese otome games for the Switch being uploaded online? I still haven't downloaded a Switch emulator so I have no idea how many pirated games there are. But there's an upcoming game I really want and it's a Japan-only Switch exclusive. Depending on the answer I might have to somehow import the cartridge in the future and share the game myself if it's even released physical.

>>6789
And it was basically just made to complement Pokémon GO. Not only that, but it's lacking things from Yellow and FRLG (reminiscent of ORAS disappointment). As a coomer I would only play it because of the updated trainer designs.

any of you played this absolute banger yet? it's basically a planned economy simulator with city builder characteristics set in the 19th century. if you're a cockshott fan, this game is right up your alley since you're pretty much doing input-output planning using an extensive statistics screen as soon as you start getting into the late game.

also there's strikes and riots and the soundtrack during them is kinda based

Nah, I didn't play any of the games like this. Literally none of the games require farming to complete the basic story, though to be fair you have to play well to avoid farming completely.

The real epic farming is the end-game after the story, which I tried a bit in every game, but never got into.

The games hold their own with just the story content. Not that the writing is good, but the missions, mechanics and progression hold up. I mean, how cool is the stacking and throwing of units? How cool is "item world"? So many good little ideas.

>>6431
Actually this is a valid way to play since you can stack tons of buffs on 1 unit (e.g. Laharl) and have him destroy the board. But having a varied party is more fun imo.

I think the problem is that interaction that would work in the context of an art piece and interaction that would work as the base of a gameplay loop for a 20+ hour entertainment product can be difficult to reconcile. that said interaction I.E. gameplay can absolutely be integrated into the art in a meaningful way. the way people dismiss the potential of interaction out of hand just seems arbitrary and lazy to me most of the time.

And Japan studio was/is a 50+ million dollar outfit with elite level talent in numerous technical fields, that's what is required if you want to make a notable work with a moderately high degree of fidelity. there's no getting around how suffocating those real world requirements are.

This is quite a big caveat. I've never even heard of them and I don't play my games under the supervision of spyware. There's a certain kind of person willing to install their spyware and it typically isn't someone with scruples in the quality of the games they play. Seems like everything on this list involves multiplayer. Tends to lower the bar for standards when you're playing with friends because just having their company can be enjoyable, even if the game is shit.

>Action Adventure with RPG elements is basically the only “genre” now.
That's an effective way of putting it.
I think there's an increasing tendency for big budget single-player games to prioritize "immersive" lifelike simulation over creativity, identity and, well, fun. And I personally feel left behind more and more. I don't care about stuff like Star Citizen or Cyberpunk 2077. Don't give a shit if you have realistic ice cube melting algorithms or if citizens actually go piss every two hours if you watch them for enough time.
This is actually a natural development in any medium where technology plays a big role. Something like writing/design quality is too unpredictable to safely invest in, so you create formulas. But formulas get tiring, so you make up for it with dazzling technological advancement, one of the most reliable investments you can make. This has clearly already been happening in video games for a while, but the tendency is for it to become more and more prominent, as with film (obvious example being capeshit).
Or maybe I'm just old. That can be the case too. I don't think it explains everything, though, since I like the occasional indie game and I thought even P5 was alright.

I though about starting this thread in /hobby/, but considering I'm not interested in talking about the merits of the game-itself, and rather to discuss the specific dilemma of factions, I thought I'd get a more focused discussion here.

The Wildcard ending notwithstanding, there are principally three different factions in the game you can side with: Caesar's Legion, New California Republic, and Mr. House. To begin, Caesar's Legion is a fascist power lead by a historical materialist (even though the writers somewhat misrepresent Hegel in their dialogue about the dialectic, the general theme is maintained) most players misunderstand Caesar as just a LARPer rather than someone who is genuinely trying to restart history. His Legion, is admittedly a hegemonic autocracy that Caesar intends to use to subjugate humanity under one banner, so that their collective progress would be accelerated. It's entirely possible to interpret Caesar as just history's janitor trying to send humanity back through the motions and antiquity to try and reach a better result than rushing back to the "good ol' days" like the NCR, rather than someone who takes pleasure in creating a slave society that is an objectively malignant entity.

The NCR is presented as the return of the old Bourgeois Dictatorship of the US, their government is a corrupt expansionist bureaucracy that can only adequately administrate war, meanwhile the actual body of the legislation itself has a lineage of benevolent autocrats (tandy) and is ruled by the interest of the "brahmin barons" (kulaks), this is a critique that Caesar presents in his analysis of the NCR (which happens to sound out-of-context Marxian). Caesar correctly identifies the NCR as a reincarnation of the failed Bourgeois state that brought about the very predicament of the wasteland, and seeks to use them as his component in creating a society apt enough to the material conditions of the wasteland.

The strangest character in this dynamic is Mr. House, if the NCR is a light veil for a Bourg dictatorship, then Mr. House is an open window, making no illusions to the player about his proposed autocratic status and ex-Bourg origin. Since the wasteland cannot be considered Capitalist (as a true economic analysis of the Fallout universe would lack too many necessary factors to be accurate) we have to assume that the wastes can be best surmised as a scavenger-economy wherein the most valuable resource is electricity and armamentPost too long.

What do you guy think of New Canaan? To me they seem like a settler colony but without the imperialism and racism somehow. The only thing they care to spread is Mormonism and medical knowledge. They're still pretty paternalistic, both Joshua Graham and Daniel call the Sorrows childlike or naive and superstitious. It's weird for sure.

never played afterburner, but it's not like star fox, which is on rails. ace combat is closer to a flight sim (but very arcadey still) with full control over flight path and whatnot. you shoot down other aircraft and also helicopters and ground targets (tanks, fortifications, etc.). it's closer to rogue squadron than star fox.

How big of a step-up is Zero compared to 4 and 5? I played through and enjoyed the latter two, but I haven't snagged a copy of Zero yet. Is it as good as the fans make it out to be or is it just a pretty good game that's very memeable?
