I’m gonna tear this game a new asshole

Hundreds of the 1001 confirmed bugs are STILL in the game to this day and might aswell never will be fixed but before I rant on about the bugs I’m gonna first complain about how mediocre the game started off as and still fucking is


The UI is a mess and clutters your screen with shit you only need to have a few functioning brain cells to understand. As for the rest of lifeless essays shit quests it goes without saying you might aswell have the game playing itself because it holds your hand on all of the still minimal amounts of content

There’s no fucking atmosphere at all making the game not scary in the fucking slightest. Seriously name one just one instance where you’ve seen anybody play fallout and say they ever felt scared, or sad about what goes on in the game and not at the game for how much of a fuckup it is

The AI is laughably retarded from the scorched to the raiders to the ghouls, they all behave like pathfinding zombies. Not even the zombies you’d find in games like left 4 dead 2 that do interesting shit like attacking each other or sneaking up on you. Just fucking lazy as shit pathfinding AI that walk in a line to kill you. Stalker is an over decade old fucking game and manages to portray how real bandits in video games would respond to fire fights with AI flanking you, changing positions, hiding, alerting others etc and the mutants get their fair share of love to with dogs running away when they’re too wounded or monsters hanging up on you in groups rather than attack you as individuals along with dispersing when injured to fuck up your aim. Fallout 76 has NONE OF THAT AND ITS RELEASED OVER A DECADE AFTER STALKER

The scorched beast is a literal not even bothering to at least reskin copy paste off the dragon model in Skyrim
that has all the same fucking bugs.

The models for all the rest of the enemies in this mediocre excuse of a game all look like aliens. You know how zombies in left 4 dead wore clothes based off their locations and had visible human features, no one not the scorched to the ghouls to the ai even have a design that looks even remotely human and there’s not even variations to those models.
The mutants don’t even look like mutated creatures they’re based off of st least in stalker a boar mutant looks like boar but with larger teeth and other junk in fallout a mutated cockroach looks like my grandma is see in a nightmare after smoking five lines of cocaine.

Ammo and caps are far far too easy to come by and drops on enemies that shouldn’t even have ammo in the first place *cough cough* mutants *cough cough*
The game is still P2W and p2p on top of that while the graphics look like something out of a 2000s game yet the game can’t be run on a 2000s computer partly because optimization in this shitshow is nonexistent and partly because the server is too busy crashing your PC randomly because no one on bethesdas server team actually has the time to fix the servers.

The animation is lifeless, rigid, unvaried and makes the world feel as dead as the office it was made in, NPCs and raiders don’t even get sleep cycles or shit to do when the player isn’t around providing zero incentive to explore or learn more about your enemies


All of the above mentioned have made fallout a once post apocalyptic horror RPG into a fucking action adventure looter shooter game with 90s era animation, ai and 2000s era graphics made for toddlers

<and now onto the bugs


Oh my god it’s exhausting knowing at BARE MINIMUM 60% of the bugs in this game are still present to this day. The most common bugs you’ll encounter are collision failures causing AI and physics to completely break down regularly meaning you can have shit like exploding weapons and duplicating heads popping up, and the second most common bug is due to a rendering glitch that occurs because Bethesda developers thought it was a smart idea to render the world based off the camera angle and not off the camera position meaning every fucking time you turn around you’ll see the entire world of fallout from the physics to the shadows to the models all having to be reloaded in over and over and over again which causes even more hundreds of stupid bugs. These two common bugs are what produce the most amount of bugs in game as for the rest those bugs aren’t even gonna be mentioned because they’re glitches from past Bethesda games. You know how earlier I mentioned that the scorched beast model is recycled from Skyrim? Guess what for a shit load of other content in game that recycling is present and the fact that the game has been out for years and none of the bugs actually got fixed in those recycled assets should tell you about how little of a shit that studio gives about making actual RPGs beyond ESO. I’m tired of writing this, bethesdas next launches for elder scrolls 6 and that’s space thing are gonna be disasters and that’s proven just by looking at their history considering they’ve always been lazy and incompetent just compare the outer worlds to literally any Bethesda release and you’ll see what I mean. I’m going back to playing stalker

Warcraft 3 reforged and capitalist incompetence

There’s one thing I see many on this board and in real life assume to often about capitalists and it’s the belief that they always know what they’re doing

It’s no secret or surprise that companies are not managed by one person but rather are clusters of bureaucracy that each fulfill individual tasks to make the collective of a for profit institution wealthier but when these clusters get inefficient it’s noticeable and destructive z

Warcraft 3 reforged is by far a perfect example of when this incompetence is fully realized and I’ll explain why. The game when it was released was a full scale downgrade of everything vivendi made in the original Warcraft 3 before it became activision blizzard and when you understand how low the prospects were for the remaster you’ll realize that not only shouldn’t have there been a way for blizzard to fail at remastering the game but also that they shouldn’t have fucked up as badly as they did as all that they promised were remasters of old models animations textures and lights. Why did this occur? As mentioned prior incompetence

Capitalists are not immune to error loads of mistakes happen all the time in capitalist institutions to the point where the full scale collapse of entire industries around the world is a regular occurrence and in blizzards case that incompetence came in the form of mismanagement, teams being randomly rescheduled, failing either to assign developers their roles or forcing them to churn them out to quickly etc. the end result was a game so buggy, graphically outdated and mediocre that it was reported the main menu consumed more memory than the actual game as it ran on a chrome browser than on the cpu cache or at least the GPU on its initial release all before being labelled as one of the worst releases in gaming in the year it was first sold. Please to all readers do not forget this and when you see more instances of these poor releases by companies small or large never forget Warcraft 3 and the incompetence of capitalist institutions

Immersion in videogames

First let me get two points to establish before I go with this thread

>immersion doesn’t equate to good game design

>getting a player immersed in a game has little to do with graphics

The actual key components in immersion are AI and animation. The reasons are the fact that complex AI builds complex ways of fulfilling and interacting with goals in videogames, and animation brings a level of believability for what’s happening in games further allowing players to find enjoyment from the visuals.

AI provide players with a mountain of methods to solve problems and play the games they like any way they want due to how they respond to the things around them, for example if I have an enemy mob in a game and simply give a region on that ai that when hit does more damage than attacking any other region suddenly the player can decide and plan how they want to kill a mob than simply mash buttons until victory. This is already seen in games like Tarkov or the stalker series where a single bullet well positioned enough can clear a target in due time encouraging players to get better as they play and that’s just the beginning. Generally you can expect that the more complex an ai is not just in its available reactions but how it interacts with other ai to provide more and more options for gameplay until you can wind up with exploits for these mechanics by players whom have enough playtime to have learnt and excelled in them. Like mob farms in terraria, or megabases in games as dense in opportunities like dwarf fortress.

Animation also improves the immersion a game can provide to a player simply by providing a level of believability to the events on screen, it may not seem like much but simply having a door open by having an ingame model animated to physically open the door rather than just having it open goes a long way especially with simpler animations for things like crafting objects in tlou2, mounting yourself on horses within rdr2, seeing zombies actually take time to bleed out in left 4 dead or just watch mobs fucking go wild on each other in monster hunter. It all makes a word feel alive and dense with detail that simply can’t be faked with only high resolution textures and meshes.

In conclusion a game maker when designing a world to be immersive should focus primarily on the animation and AI components of said game. It goes a long way at least for me.thanks for reading

4X Games - Civ, Alpha Centauri, Shadow Empire

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.

Wow guy from earlier

I spent some time playing osrs and now that I’m seeing dragon flight I have some request

Don’t add in any form of RNG, I know this is gonna piss off some other wow fans but make the progression straight forward again as the law of causality in progression in games has always been more rewarding for me in games than the law of probability.(probably why I find terraria so much fun years later) If I kill a cow I get meat out of it, if I kill a giant with a club I’ll get his club out of his corpse, if I see a big ass boss with sweet ass loot, me or my squad gets exactly that kind of loot from that very specific boss.

No more azerite shit and grind just make things simple straightforward and challenging in dragon flight just make things difficult and simple to understand

Chess

I'm making this thread here, because the other boards are practically dead. If a mod chooses to move it to /hobby/, that's cool, I just wanted some exposure on /leftypol/.

As you might now, chess played a large role in the Soviet Union. They outright dominated the game for decades and it was commonly played ever since the inception of the union.

I think chess does possess the potential to develop and train the strategic thinking skills of players, if they abstract from the game and attempt to apply it to the real world.

But it's also a fun game. Because of that I made a /leftypol/ club on chess.com, which is a great website with a nice UI and plenty of resources to learn and improve at chess. I've been using it for months now and got far better at chess and I even do the puzzles on it for fun every day. The way the website is designed makes learning chess and improving really, really easy. Making an account is free and would be quick. I know this sounded like an ad, lol.

So, I'm inviting you comrades to start learning chess or improve whatever skill level you are at and join the /leftypol/ chess club. We could play against each other. Perhaps even organize tournaments. I think it would be really cool if we could get something like this going and make it the community wide hobby. If only 3 people join that would be good enough honestly.

Why doesn’t minecraft just use big floating point numbers

If you know the bug behind why the far lands existed or why minecraft needs a world border you’ll know the games bug is a fundamental problem of Java itself not being able to calculate numbers past a level of precision. There’s APIs to get around this that fundamentally add a new number type typically called big int or big floating point specifically designed to allow computers to use up more memory to calculate arbitrarily large numbers(in the sense of significant digits)
This is why full precision calculators work and is a major part of cryptography. Why doesn’t mojang just use these types of numbers to load in chunks than stick with the interger method whom needs a world border spawning only a 1000km from spawn?

Games should work towards advancements in optimization

Most advances in gaming have been almost exclusively towards graphics but very little towards making games playable
It’s gotten so bad to the point where even new released cards can’t run new releases at a solid 60fps without constant lag spikes and random glitches. And that sucks considering it’s actually smarter to focus on optimization techniques like Multithreading, quadtree LODs, instancing, array storage etc as it enables new ways of building games to be discovered than simply cramming more processing power into your system and hoping shit works

I hate world of Warcraft but on one side I feel like I shouldn’t

If your old enough to know this you’ll know world of Warcraft since it’s inception yes even before activism on merged with blizzard that world of earcraft was designed to be a casual mmo(at least casual by 90s standards if the game was released today in that state people would whine endlessly about the grind and difficulty curve) since it’s initial release and that design philosophy hasn’t changed.

I don’t know, the game isn’t satisfying to play, the loot feels easy to obtain and all the higher ranked loot aren’t limited in supply on a server making them pretty much worthless not to mention the fact that you can just straight up buy levels along with the fact that no piece of gear in the game has any form of uniqueness to other pieces these days. Not to mention that it’s possible to play through all the games content without ever once interacting with another player, it’s just


It’s all too easy and obviously was designed for a player base that doesn’t have the time to actually enjoy games…

MGS4 and the 4th industrial revolution

There has been a lot of discussion about how prophetic MGS2 and Death Stranding were, with respect to internet memes and censorship, and middle class lockdown life, respectively. But what about MGS4? I can't find any discussion of how relevant MGS4 is to our present condition, so let's look at this anti-vaxxer masterpiece.

>Everyone is being forced to inject nanomachines that link them up with a digital control grid (in the last part of the game, Colonel Campbell says this will be used to "enslave the planet")

>Johnny is dissed as an idiot by everyone, but later turns out to be a gigachad who refused the nanomachines because he's afraid of needles
>Entire world has been subsumed by a system of endless proxy wars
>But the proxy wars are just the result of induced demand by the war economy, which consists of four major PMCs that are secretly united by a single world government-corporation
>World government uses proxy wars as a way to control everyone's thoughts and feelings, rapidly enlists everyone into either the PMCs or support for war
>World government isn't even human– it's just a bunch of advanced AIs that have figured out how to play 4d chess in the global class war
>Realtime, total battlefield control. Everything ID tagged, tracked, controlled
>Robots and drones all over the battlefield
>Video games are used to indoctrinate kids into thinking war is cool so they'll fight pointless wars for profit
>MKULTRA mind control conditioning used to engineer half-human, half-machine super soldiers
>Use Drebin's cryptocurrency to get weapons shipped to you right on the battlefield via drone

Half of MGS4's scenario is already realized, and I give us 10, maybe 15 years tops before we are completely living in the Kojima World Order.

What game had the best dating sim mechanic? By dating sim I mean any game that has interactive elements that are supposed to simulate the player building a relationship with that character. Platonic or romantic the concept is fundamentally the same I think, demonstrated perfectly with GTA 4 where the mechanic to build rapport with your friends is the same way you date the ladies. Drive them to the bar, get drunk, drive back etc.

I think like all simulation type games it's a hard to find the right balance between feeling and true interactivity. So, are there any that've stood out to you? How do you avoid the just strategically grind up the numbers type RPG action?

Problematic and Progressive elements in games

What problematic or progressive things have you noticed in games?

I've been thinking about Morrowind. Morrowind is actually a surprisingly progressive game considering its age, with comparatively few restrictions on character creation, allowing you to create more or less whichever character you'd like without being pigeon holed by stereotypes or caught out by the developer's assumptions about what kind of person you are, but one small unfortunate element that has stood out to me for a while is that Ahnassi's questline is cut off if your character is a woman, which is a shame because it's a really good questline with some nice rewards and Ahnassi is a highly appealing character. There's no reason for this to be the case - opening it up would be a great way to make Morrowind more inclusive to players with sapphic characters. It's an odd decision because Bethesda clearly weren't afraid to include LGBTQ+ characters at the time, with Crassius Curio (a problematic figure, but one recognised as such in text) attracted to players of either gender.

Why the hell are Nintendo Switch games so expensive and often hard to find? I had to pay 15% over retail for a used copy of a four year old game, and I was one of the fortunate ones who even found a copy. Are they trying to push people towards digital sales for the higher profit margins, or is this just a natural consequence of fewer games being in print? Paying for the equivalent of a second console just for five games is insanity. The PS4 has been way easier and cheaper to collect for and those games, at least the exclusives, have way higher development costs.

Fear & Hunger

I‘ve become obsessed with this game. I haven‘t played anything in a long time that could invoke strong emotions in me, but this shit was morbid in a way I have never seen in a game before. It‘s a horror RPG and is as if you turned Berzerk into a game. People say Dark Souls is hard, but Dark Souls is a picknick compared to this game.. the randomization also gives the game some replay value. And speaking of Dark Souls, if you like environmental story telling this is another plus, since you have to piece the information of the surrounding world together. And you can easily get the game for free, but I ended up donating the developers some money anyway.

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.

World of Warcraft

Does anyone play this game or wow classic? I used to play quite a bit of classic, TBC, WOTLK and early cataclysm. TBH i consider the first three expansion packs unbeatable in their quality, esp. Vanilla and TBC. WOTLK was also the height of Arena pvp.

I don't think bu-blizzard could ever recreate something on this level. Classic Blizz (90s->2007/8) was an AWESOME time. Activision merger started to take its toll around the time Cata rolled out. Even WOTLK though having tons of oldfag devs etc. it still began to show a few signs of this, though arena pvp was at it peak and beast. Raiding was good, but already you saw the cycle of "running out of ideas", with them updating naxxramas. Cataclysm was supposed to be a reinvention of classic wow which is why they redid a bunch of classic zones including Orgrimmar.

I feel like after this period Blizz started to succumb to the same late-capitalist bullshit of hollywood where every single movie is a reboot. Every game nu-Blizz/activision-blizz made after that just seemed like a shitty recycle of previous ideas (ex: Heroes of the storm - lets make a moba like 6 years after they were hot and make all the characters in there from our other games or shitty generic). Even overwatch wasn't as original as people think, the characters felt like shitty incredibles/disneyfied versions of archetypical charcters.

The mechanics/graphics of wow have gotten better but the balance and storyline have become shitty. This isn't an inditement of the programmers or technical artists but more the corporate leadership and creative direction.

Late Capitalism Simulator

Lately I’ve seen a huge influx of good games that try to update the outdated capitalist realist Cyberpunk genre to the current political and economic landscape. Stuff like Disco Elysium is getting more and more recognition they rightfully deserve for depicting the hopeless and bleak death of modern revolution. However they’re still have some semblance of hope like with Ghostrunner having the corporation being destroyed by a revolution in contrast to the sad oppression of the system.

Another great but obscure example is whatever the fuck Cruelty Squad is. It’s fully embraced the boring drug fueled dystopia aesthetic while delivering basically Deus Ex but without the stealth. Compared to the faux shell of a Cyberpunk game 2077 was (full of cyber but nothing about the societal implications of such technologies other than some edgy infantile “message” about “soul”), this game have everything and everyone be miserable using the cyber-enhancements. Space colonization and AI being pipe dreams. Corporations are not knowingly malicious but only apart of the rot of capitalism.

Simulation Wargames (tabletop or otherwise)

This seems like a good topic for a /leftypol/ gaming thread since it is both autistic gaming discussion and actually has potential for a leftist development of strategy.

Maybe this would ideally be better suited for /hobby/ but as long as /games/ is more active seems sensible to just post anything related to games in any form here, like the chess thread or other tabletop.

I've recently been interested in the kind of "wargames" (broadly meaning military/political/strategic/policy simulation) that militaries, intelligence agencies, and consultant groups use to strategize and troubleshoot their plans. Personally this is interesting as far as I enjoy playing and designing strategy games. More generally, this seems like a good investment of time for leftists who are nerds who enjoy this shit anyway because it is a way to attempt to apply "gaming" to actual strategic considerations.

The best publicly available version of this I've seen that is also utilized by the aforementioned groups is Matrix Games, which is a very rules-lite and scaleable model that tries to remove constraining gameplay meta in favor of players debating what is within reason and what is not. Whether this makes for the most "fun" gameplay possible is besides the point, because the idea is to use the tabletop wargame format to explore the widest range of strategic possibilities, and establishing in-game advantages and victories based on serious discussion of what would be concievable under the given circumstances seems to be a good way to encourage thinking outside the box and considering various angles.

http://www.mapsymbs.com/wdmatrix.html#what

Some abbreviated info from the website:

<What are Matrix Games?

>Matrix games are different to normal Wargames and Role-Playing games. In a these games you compare lists of statistics and peer at complicated books of rules containing someone else's idea about what things are important, before rolling a dice. It takes a long time and can be very difficult to explain to a newcomer. Instead, in a Matrix Game you simply use words to describe why something should happen, the Umpire decides how likely it is, and you roll a dice. If you can say "This happens, for the following reasons…" you can play a Matrix Game.

<Game Arguments

>In a Matrix Game, actions are resolved by a structured sequence of logical "arguments". Each player takes turns to make an argument, with successful arguments advancing the game, and the player's position. There are a number of ways you can do this and each has their own strengths and weaknesses.

<Notes about Arguments

>The important thing to remember in a Matrix game is that Arguments can be made about anything that is relevant to the scenario. You can argue about your own personnel or about the enemy, the existence of people, places, things or events, the political leadership back home, the weather, plague, disease, public opinion, and you can even argue for changes in whatever rules you are using. With a bit of imagination, common sense and rational thinking, it is possible to present persuasive arguments as to what should happen in any scenario.
>When an Argument succeeds it remains in effect until another Argument stops it. This means that if you are Napoleon and succeed in Arguing that you march on Moscow, you will continue to move forward, every turn, until you get there - unless of course someone argues that you don't…

The Matrix Games website has some popular premade scenarios: http://www.mapsymbs.com/wdmatrix1.html

I'm still totally unsure about the actual details of play and potential variations, is anybody familiar with this kind of thing?

Are there any other kinds of wargames that serve as good strategic simulations that you know of/would recommend?

Whether they're "professional", tabletop, vidya, whatever I'm mostly just curious about games like this that (taking for granted that perfect "authenticity" isn't ever going to be possible) at least provide a strong basis for a meaningful familiarity with serious strategic considerations. It seems like reactionaries and too many leftists are satisfied with pretending that shit like paradox games or milsim shooters or w/e are representative of reality in any way and that there's no other way to engage with strategic hypotheticals outside of these products designed for consumption within strict ideological assumptions, while the world's powerful interests are using "game" tools that the dissident political milieus are probably more familiar with but completely ignore.

Let's talk about how we can fix that.

Fanmods, total conversions, and independent projects

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.

That, "A journalist ought to be able to disagree with the president!" And you think you can just march into these countries - based on some fundamentalist, religious principles - drop a few bombs, topple a dictator and start a democracy? Huh. Give me a break.

Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead.

Hi /games/. I'm looking for a few volunteers to create a leftist post-apocalyptic community in C:DDA both to discount the Hobbesian idea of war of all against all and show that humans are communal creatures as well as showcasing leftist ideas to a large, international group of gamers.

No Technological Experience or Knowledge is required, mostly just an active imagination, possibly some writing and an interest in having real leftist examples in video games.

If you do not currently play c:dda but would like to understand the other factions that currently exist in the game, read:
https://cataclysmdda.org/design-doc/#world

It's important to mention that the two currently most developed factions are a capitalist one which broadly speaking are free market capitalists, with some just wanting to make money whilst others are pure 'right libertarian' ideologues. The second being a faction which is the remnants of the old american state and seeks to unite the US back into the old USA. Patriots, Generals, beurocrtats, basically govt people and there patriot supporters.. rumored to have a good portion of the US fleet still active and just off-shore of somewhere preparing for a ground offensive.
.
These two groups are allies. This is significant as it allows for conflict with leftist organization and as we know Conflict Drives Plot.

Online Nigzi team killing operations

Has anyone ever considered launching mass TKing operations in WW2 multiplayer games? They seem to be a hub for proto-chinlets AKA Wehrboos. Might not be a bad place to bash the fash in the virtual world. I've been getting into Hell let Loose and It's amazing how much damage a single malevolent player can do to their own team. Kill an officer while they are building an outpost spawn, snipe people behind friendly lines to sew confusion. Imagine what 5 or 6 players who join the Nigzi team could do if they coordinated on fbi.gov or something. A single mass TK event could absolutely throw a game for these Nigzis. Do it enough and it could discourage people from wanting to play as the Nigzis, because they might not even be able to trust their own teammates. Why hasn't something like this been tried. Nigzis should always be reminded of what losers they are, both IRL and online.

I did some searches and it seems most people agree that WT is much more realistic and simulator-y than WoT which is good cause I'd like to try realism. So, that's the one I'm downloading right now, but does anyone else have a different opinion on it?

In addition, I know there's probably a huge amount of affiliate new member deals out there but does anyone know what one is the best I can use currently, ideally linked to a good YT channel that deserves it? If not I can just search for it but hey.

General advice for getting started (or why I shouldn't)?

Post Scriptum

Immersive WWII squad combat simulator. 80 people on a server, 40 a side, although they are talking about expanding it to a 100. There's no ranks, skins, microtransactions, or any of that bullshit. At the end of the game you just see your own stats, and four MVPs and that's it. Onto the next one. It's exciting as fuck and if you're not careful it eats your time. It is made with the Unreal engine and I am told it is very similar to Squad, which I haven't played.

The game has several game modes, but the most popular one is offensive. Where you capture enemy objectives by taking over the point. The maps and locations are as true to history as they can be, they re-created the locations from maps, aerial photos from the time, stuff like that. Weapons available are the ones available to that side at that battle. And yes, there are tanks. You can play as the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, US airborne, British airborne or French infantry (in 1940 iirc).

It's a real team game and communication and cooperation are necessary. You have a squad leader who commands his squad of 9 people, who can be riflemen, medic, light and heavy machine gunner, mortar, AT, sapper, radio, with the special classes divided among the squads. There are also armored squads, for driving tanks, because you need 2-3 people to operate a tank. There are also logistic squads, who have to set up forward operating bases, vehicle repair stations, supply stations, defenses, mortars, etc. The maps are huge, and you get a sense of a battle on a large scale.

Only downside is that the team developing it said they don't have enough money to add the Eastern Front battles to the game. But they have had modding only since December 2020, so probably in the future we can expect that someone will make some Eastern Front maps.

Do any of you play? I think it would be cool to get a leftist clan going in this game.

Remove the ui

I’m amazed at how much better most fps games get when you remove the UI, suddenly without the crosshair, hitmarkers, maps, sfx for hits and headshots, killfeeds, hp bars whatever the player is put into a position where they HAVE to think a lot more about how they play the game. Suddenly your having to take cover wherever you can and check to make sure whatever you kill is actually dead because the removal of the ui forces you to take the risk of confirming kills than a kill feed giving you points and a description for what you killed and that’s just for kills. Crosshairs removals force you to aim and consider what’s worth shooting at vs what’s not, map removal forces you to record your surroundings and learn to navigate where you need to be by yourself, quest tree removals forces you to archive what your doing instead of being told what you have to finish in game making how you play feel a lot more optional, you get it

There’s many benefits to removing a games ui, try it

MORROWIND THREAD?

MORROWIND THREAD

I just bought Morrowind so i can finally finish it since last time i installed it i just made a thief character, stole a bunch of cuttlery and soul gems, a silver tanto, savescummed my ass into killing a bandit with an enchanted shiv and then got captured, having lost all of my loot i proceeded to swim to Solstheim for some reason and somehow managing to get there. just to get killed by a wolf as soon as i got there.
then i played it again a couple of years later when MorroBlivion came out
and i pretty much just role-played as a thief prostitute in Balmora until i got slightly tired of my game crashing every 15 minutes and also i needed those 19GB of storage to store more mods for another game.

So…
Which mods should i install for the game to be less broken to the point that i don't need to rely on glitches?
but also make the game harder?

particularly i'm looking for a mod like this other Skyrim mod "REQUIEM" but only because i want a harder magic mod that makes it so playing magic focused characters is harder but more rewarding as in magic takes a lot of dedication to learn and master.
i'll probably make a mod that disables or nerfs paying for training to the ground as i never liked that feature.

Listing every stupid about fallout

I’m just gonna whine and nitpick obvious gaps in science and logic the games and the lore have for fun

>nukes aren’t fucking magic

This is the most important one to point out, nuclear warheads in their current state(I’m emphasizing current because the tech for them is no match for the modern world and potentially not even a threat in the era they were made) aren’t fucking magical WMDs, they aren’t used just because NGOs fight against them but because as practice weapons there shockingly useless. There only heavy enough to destroy 1 or a few buildings, there isn’t a guarantee they’ll hit, plenty of weapons from missiles, jets, satellites etc can detect and destroy them LONG before they hit anything or even launch(fun fact the internet was created directly to prevent them by the USA), volcanic eruptions regularly occurring cause far more radiation, climate change and general destruction than even the tsar bomba, the blast heat and radiation diffuses to such a point where simply being a few meters away is pretty much guaranteed safety, other WMDs and conventional weaponry today do far more damage and can cause far worse atrocities like napalms, white phosphorus, bombing campaigns etc this list just keeps going on

>weapons available

If this takes place a hundred or so years after 2077 it should have EVERY weapon made prior to 2077 and more including f-2 stealth fighter jets, f16s, aircraft carriers, destroyers, attack helicopters, rail guns, turrets, submarines, tanks, cluster bombs, CBRN weapons, ARs, Snipers, Shotguns, Pistols, PDWs, Carbines, revolvers, machine pistols, rocket launchers, flamethrowers, mini guns all made from 1907-present, Suppressors, scopes, sights, hard sights, canned sights, extra clips, remove and add stocks, lasers, modes of fire including semi, automatic, tri etc Bullets, cartridges, armour piercing bullets, explosive rounds, 1mm-20mm rounds, shells, IEDs, incendiary devices, bombs, nukes, knives and clubs, armoured vehicles(this includes jets, tanks, submarines, trucks, ships), artillery, drones, armour piercing bullets, incendiary bullets, explosive rounds, missiles, anti material rifles etc instead the game pretty much crippled you with shitty ww1 and 2 weapons and you don’t even get the privilege of getting to drive cars or tanks or jets without using a mod because Bethesda is filled with morons and the creation engine is worse than garbage, you can’t even use the excuse of “muh 200 years back in 2 hours” because all those weapons got manufactured before the war and the info on how to make them is still very much around

>the non human enemies

If I were to say the original writers and valve ran out of ideas on how the players should interact with the non urbanized world and fundamentally don’t understand biology I would be right, being hit by heavy radiation doesn’t turn you into an immortal ghoul or give you superpowers but gives you cancer and makes you go under an excruciatingly painful death I would also be right, death claws shouldn’t be feasting on humans for their size but even larger or other organisms in large populations along with having things like feathers and flappy skin to release heat because cells when they divide into larger systems and organisms have their volume grow larger than their surface area and need to release heat otherwise they’ll cook themselves alive, same with synths and supermutants, the other creatures are fine but based off north americas biomes and diverse ecosystems there should be a lot more effort to make more forms of life than just the few are in the story

>power armour is stupid

Exo suits already exist and they aren’t used often because a lot of them are heavy and sink into soil. The armour we see in all the games literally shouldn’t be able to function because the player would be spending more time trying to walk in the things without sinking into dirt or mud or water than actually fighting off deathclaws or whatever generic sci fi bs enemies are in the lore, along with the fact that a single missile or IED could blow up the entire thing rendering it useless in combat besides the fact that those suits are big, and easy as shit to see from a distance making them easy targets

In conclusion

Not to mention all the people who seem to always be able to find a way to hack any game.

World End's Club
-It's like those oddworld games only with annoying kids, dying isn't fun, replaying parts isn't, pushing blocks is not a puzzle, the game is slow and too long, I was done with it when I saw how big the map was. I thought I'd be done when I got to the third area. Gameplay isn't engaging, there's no variety to the 'combat' so you might as-well just watch a youtoube 4k longplay.

There needs to be a revolution

Specifically in Player versus Player type of gaming

All of them are fundamentally dependent on the same thing

Play long enough = Get good by getting reflex time in the game
This makes the players think they are skillful and gives the developers long time players
It's a win-win scenario which causes players to play more also

BUT I find this stagnant, Why do things always have to be done this way
There must be some other invention in this space, Will we just forever play this kind of PvP games where all we need to do is invest time and reaction times?

Foxhole

Didn't see a thread for this game yet so here we go.

Deciding to make this now of all times because the Logistics playerbase of both the Collies and Wardens has unionized. Yes that's right; the playerbase of a game has unionized against the devs for the lack of communication and attention to logistics, the part of the game that is argued to be both its strongest and most appealing aspect.

Current estimates for the amount of Logi that will be going on strike for War 86 is 20 000+, with the pre-strike actions being flooding the media sites and Foxhole forums with pro-union topics and pictures.

If you have Foxhole and want to participate, when War 86 starts simply log on, go afk on the picket line and tab out for the rest of the day. Or just don't play at all.

Thoughts on Automata?
I'm going to replay it soon in order to write an effortpost on it relating the philosophical themes and dialogue together.
I grew up playing Drakengard and never really got it until I replayed it as an adult, and realized the disconnect between the story and gameplay was the whole point. I got bored of hacking and slashing through hordes of enemies which had no connection to the story, but I realized that the mass murder I comitted was the whole point of the game. To make the player question who is really the good guy in the context of the game. Nier, the original, plays on this more.
Automata presents this idea at the beginning with Pascal and the robot village, instead of hiding a plot twist later into the game.

>The history of all hitherto existing society) is the history of class struggles.
>Freeman and slave, patrician and plebeian, lord and serf, guild-master(3) and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.

So the game foxhole is an MMO where plays fight a "World War One and a Half" style game with eachother, involving logistics to the frontline. The logistic players are so sick that theya re threatening a strike IG until they get gameplay improvements demanded of the devs. Players on both sides have agreed to this. I am not even joking, but you have a situation where the soldiers (or a large section of them) are threatening a strike against the international organisers of teh war (the bourgeoisie).

xenogears

Calling JRPG chads, what is your opinion on Xenogears?
Forget the other games and animeshit, focus on the Jungian and Nietzschen elements of the story.
The main story focuses the imperialism of a technologically superior civilization, Jungian and Freudian psychology, the death and killing of god, becoming god, an various other philosophical nuances that the sole translator didn't get around to researching or translating in full. I always get shit for comparing this game to EVA, but I think the comparison is totally justified. Just as EVA devolved into psychological analysis of the main character (and creator) in the last stretch, so does Xenogears. The last 30% of the game, instead of going through a dungeon the game is literally cutscenes explaining what happened in the dungeon, then throws you into a bossfight.
What are your thoughts on this certified classic?

I can't stop playing this game. I don't mean that I play it for hours or days non-stop, I mean it is the only game I play when I do play. I really liked Post Scriptum, and even Verdun. But for some reason it doesn't have the appeal of playing the same fucking maps for the nth time. Maybe because the other games are realistic simulations, where the enemy is some unknown shape in the distance, much like in real life; while counter strike is a game where you play against other people directly. There's a lot of psychology involved, and reading the other team, or predicting where someone will be, sneaking there and waiting for them. Because you knew they were gonna go around that corner. Not intuition, because you trained and learned, like a rat in a maze. Yet give the option of a wide map and relative freedom with nearly fifty people on each side vs a small, tight course, 5v5 and damn the latter is way more fun.

Retreating from Real Life into Simulations

How far is too far? How mundane will simulating life get? Are we going to recreate the entirety of real life in a virtual world to escape reality? Is there anything so banal that it won't get a simulator game made about it? This isn't even interesting, like a depiction of the life of a professional lawn mower, with some kind of reflection of the place of lawns in modern society. You just mow lawns. Who is this kind of thing for? People who live in places where lawns aren't a thing? People who want to be that 30 year old boomer with his riding lawn mower but can't afford a yard? Why does this exist? Why does anything like this exist?

Lawns are bad for the environment, waste tons of resources, and occupy huge amounts of people's time that could be spent doing literally anything else, including nothing. Why immortalize something so pointless and insipidly stupid in digital code? How will humans 200 years from now look back on something so bizarre and pointless as a virtual simulation of an immensely irrational luxury status symbol that isn't even impressive? How did people get hoodwinked by supposed importance of lawns to such a degree that they would create an abomination like this?

Dwarf Fortress and Colonialism

Hi, /Gay/mers. It's Agent Kochinski here, back at you today with another thread. This time we'll be analyzing the context of dwarf fortress using Marxist Dialecticals.

Dwarf Fortress (1999) is a game made 20 years ago by a fat bastard called Tarn Adams, who for the past 20 years of his life has spent his entire existence sitting in a chair typing out C code to create his most influential, and most famous life's work, Dwarf Fortress. A game about subjugating subdwarven beings and destroying natural environments to make room for the growing hustle and bustle of modern dwarfdom. The races which one may subjugate in this game include but are not limited to:
> Scaled elves
> Elves
> Round-eared elves
> green elves
> Demon elves
> cave elves
> furries

Often encounters with non-dwarven sentient life end in lethal combat as the game encourages racial wars, in fact Race wars are the most important conflicts in the game. You can even see race wars between the same 'races' since dwarves have specific regional ethnicities. Therefore Dwarf Fortress is a game about raping other cultures into submission. Any questions?

Tamriel is a settler colonized continent

So what is settler colonialism and how do we recognize it’s existence? Settler colonialism is a form of colonization where the invading regime/population seeks to build a civilization on conquered land vs simply extracting resources and/or ruling over the indigenous population. Settler colonialism is almost by definition always genocidal in nature, where the invaders seeks to eradicate the indigenous population physically, culturally, and genetically from the land so their own descendents can take up permanent residence. In the real world examples of settler colonies include the entirety of the western hemisphere including the US, New Zealand, Australia, Israel and other nations. All of these nations engage in a pattern of eradication/slavery, asserting sovereignty over the land, and in most cases attempting to erase the act of conquest itself and trying to naturalize their presence upon indigenous land.

Looking back to Tamriel we clear evidence of at least the replacement of an indigenous population with a foreign one. Elven recorded and oral histories, accounts gathered by the the different heroes through the games while they explored The continent, and first hand accounts given to the Dragonborn by Knight-Paladin Gelebor all state that the original inhabitants of Tamriel (at least above ground) was the Elves and their civilization of Mereth. Some time, humans showed up in Tamriel, perhaps from Atmora or some other unknown place. As elves and humans came into contact elves realized that their civilization and existance as a people was being threatened from contact with humans, until a group of desperate Elves sought to take an artifact of mass destruction which the human colonizers found underneath. Over the next course of evens thousand or so years, human tribes grew and took land from elves, enslaving and/or outright slaughtering those they captured. Humanity’s rise in power and land base coalesced into the Nordic Empire and the Cyrodiilic Empires. From that point, Cyrodiil conquered the rest of elven held territory and enslaved the entire species in some nations, and in other subjugated them to the bottom of society, in some, failed attempts of genocide also happened. In this way it is clear that humans engaged in a protracted settler colonial campaign of extermination and enslavement. So on a basic level, Tamriel at least under the Nordic and Cyrodiilic Empire was indeed settler colonized.

Some complications come up tho. The fact free Elven nations such as Morrowind, Alinor and Valenwood still exist. Does the existence of these nations = decolonization? What about the rest of the continent that never went back into elven hands? I would argue that decolonization is never complete until the entire settler regime, and in the case of Tamriel, its successor states (Syrim or Hammerfell etc) are all dismantled. As far as more radical elven parties like the Thalmor is concerned, none of Tamriel rightfully belongs to humans or akaviri for that fact. Not to mention that since Morrowind got conquered by the Argonians, elves only hold Alinor and Vanderfell having no other sovereign territory of their own (the grey quarter damn sure don’t count lol).

Aside from the land grabs we also see cultural genocide with humans forcing the Alessian Order onto elves, destruction of elven artifacts and structures (not a single Falmer ruin exists in Skyrim), as well as a writing of history that denies the pre-contact elven presence on the land. Cultural genocide also includes cultural appropriation and theft. The companion Nordic mage, creator of the Dragon pantheon, was argued to be taught advanced magic by snow elves. He then used this power to destroy the elven civilization of Skyrim. He and other Nordic priests tried to pass this power off as being gifted to them by the Gods when it was the people they genocided and enslaved who taught it to them. It stands to speculate how many more spells, technology, and artifacts humans expropriated from elves while butchering them and denying them access to that same knowledge/resource.

Diablo

Diablo Revolutions or resurgence or resurrection or whatever is out now, but I'm not giving Blizzard any of my fucking money. Watching videos about the changes and the bitching about underboob and manazons did give me an appetite to play the original though.

The ISO can be found here: https://archive.org/details/Diablo_1996_Blizzard

Patch 1.09 and 2.1.0 can be found here: https://diablopat.ch/download.php

Personally I found that the original game really shows its age. I found the fan-made HD mod that adds a bunch of features, like a stash, HQ graphics, the ability to zoom in and out, and adds a bunch of content cut from the original game. It's called Belzebub and can be found here: https://mod.diablo.noktis.pl/download

Anyway just throwing this up so that there's an OG Diablo thread and people have the opportunity to play blizzard games without giving them any money. Enjoy.

For leftists interested in lore and world-building, what does the Zarosian Empire remind you of?

In the canon universe made by the RS worldbuilders/lorewriters:

*Everybody's value and worth is measured according to their immediate utility to the system or to Zaros. Those who show little utility are forgotten or ignored. Seen as a 'burden on society' by upper class nobles.

*High tech society with the most powerful military on the planet, encompassed all of the largest mainland continent except about 3 places

*Wealthier than other powers but with severe inequality for some, people don't feel life is fulfilling and are generally very unhappy

*Theocratic fanatical devotion to an amoral 'Empty Lord' who simply does not care about what doesn't benefit them and is often nearly always absent. An organized religion driven more by loyalty and faith to him instead of any humanitarian beliefs.

*The homeless are murdered on the streets or eaten by shadow ghosts and demonic citizens, drained by vampiric creatures to point of near-death. Laws exist against killing people but they are ultimately not enforced because 'nobody cares for them, they have little value to the system'

GETchan VN collaboration project

So our idea was as follows (as I understand what we discussed)

We want to make a VN in Ren'py because the software/coding is pretty easy.

moo_moo knows how to code python for the backend
hardkoba does nice sexy art for the characters
spurdo does 3d and 2d works and can possibly do the backgrounds and/or other design elements
caballo is a writer and can write the novel bit
pepe_pp does writing and some art and can assist with those
moo_moo also does music (electronic) so can handle that

Other people may want to contribute with their skills of course.

Plot concept:
Main character lives in present day Earth sadly because capitalism and the ongoing social collapse sucks.
He possibly idly signs some form agreeing to be part of some preservation experiment if he dies.
He then dies shortly afterward, either through suicide or through random accident/calamity
MC's brain is stored in a 'science chamber' (or whatever) at a university for research, either because he signed the forms or because he is special in some other way and was picked out. Eventually, his brain simply becomes a display piece/teaching aid for med students.
30-50 years later, the climate crisis comes to a head and capitalist society is destroyed due to resource shortages, wars, et cetera, some years later, the people take power globally and start the work of rebuilding society along communist lines.
150-200 years after our story starts, a team of scientists decides to use MC's brain in an experiment to attempt to resurrect him, possibly they have tried previously and his is the first time it has worked, or the project has never been tried before but a mad scientist at the university decides to try it on a whim with MC's brain.
After some time, MC's body is regrown and he awakes in a brave new world, with the last thing he remembers having been his death.
He is dazed and confused at first for obvious reasons and does not really know if he's alive or dead. Of course he is told what had happened but doesn't quite understand/believe it.
Eventually MC is up and moving around, and he is shown the brave new world by, most likely, the love interests.
The utopian abundance of the world actually convinces him moreso that he has gone to heaven/'the good place' and that nothing is really real.
That's really as far as we got, but MC has to deal with existential crises like whether anything is real, whether he is even the same person as the one he remembers being (due to consciousness stopping, etc), whether he fits in in this world and if he should have even been resurrected to begin with, and so on.

The world:
The world should be utopian communism, but will probably not call itself that due to entryism and not wanting to immediately put people off. MC will be amazed by the freedom and choice that people have, the lack of money, the fact that anyone can do basically whatever they want (within reason), and is both in awe and deeply alienated by the new society.
MC also finds it hard to fit in because social conventions have changed drastically, with people generally being much more communal, having more loose ideas of who owns what and sharing, people being more sexually open and less private in general, the commonness of polygamy, orgies, et cetera, and the lack of (as he sees it) personal boundaries and so on.
We have come to an impasse about the appearances of the people that surround MC. Some of us believe that it would be a society of largely mixed race, healthy and generally attractive looking people who put less emphasis on appearance due to the fact that appearances can be relatively easily changes/corrected/modified.
Others would prefer a world of diversity and sexual 'novelty' where people's bodies have been extensively modified to fit their personalities, with the physical form being a representation of the internal mind. People would be diverse, strange, and some would be transhuman (ie. possibly furries, elves, catgirls, or even more exotic thing). So, I guess we have to decide on that.

We also agreed that ideally the MC should be gender flexible (he/she/they) to player choice, but I have used he for simplicity.
Sex scenes would be enabled in the game put able to be disabled/skipped like many other VNs.
Ideally, there should be femboys in the game as romance options as well as women.

Anyways, I might have forgotten some things, but that's about as far as we got, I believe. Let's hope we stick with it and the project isn't just an idle idea that is thrown into the ether and forgotten!

Inspirations:
Everlasting Summer (commie imageboard VN with time travel elements)

Bretons, being the weakest of all due to mixture with Elves, only massacres Orcs from time to time

If no one has played this great classic space sim from the golden age of pc gaming (90s to mid 2000s) you owe it a chance. Descent Freespace, including the silent threat expansion and the sequel, Descent Freespace 2, are arguably the greatest games ever created in the space sim genre.

This guy has a pretty good video series on the games:

A critique on modern game design

Modern games are boring as shit because the player has no reason to play the game. This sounds retarded but it's true, modern games are designed with an end goal, too many games are either multiplayer minigames or open world games where the world is filled with nothing and you have no sense as to what your supposed to do in those games, what ends up happening is the player either feels as if they're aimlessly moving a character in the game accomplishing quite frankly nothing or have already finished the game like in games like Alex legends or modern warfare and thus have 0 reason to open or play the game again as it's unlikely they'll find anything new or interesting to play. This lack of a purpose is one of the reasons as to why games since the late 2000s started seeing a noticeably declining quality in actual game design despite the fact that graphical technology has improved(of course if your willing to pay thousands just to run new releases at consistent frame rates than it's an improvement) and player dissatisfaction has risen to a point where ancientfags in gaming either have given up on new releases due to fears of wasting their money on a game that's gonna be shit and bug infested day 1. I blame world of warcraft for this trend as they made the belief that you can get players consistently spending on a game without a real purpose, and with it a bunch of new MMOs hoping to copy world of warcrafts success started launching all while making mistakes the developers of WOW had already came over during the 90s and early 2000s, suddenly the open world format would become an increasing normality with franchises like far cry and soon the world of modern gaming began to decay over a reason that could be fixed pretty easily. Oh well

Console exclusivity

I am a socialist in almost every aspect in my life. I help organize, I promote worker rights, I don't ignore feminist and racial struggles. Yet when it comes to console exclusivity I transform into the complete opposite of everything I believe in. As an owner of a console, I enjoy exclusives and I hate it whenever an exclusive gets ported to PC. I know every game being on every piece of hardware especially PC is the right, moral, and "proletarian" choice, but I can't help but rage and denounce at the sight of any exclusive, even the ones from a different console, gets ported.

Maybe it's some residue PTSD from being in a tight-knit Demon's Souls community when I was younger, and seeing the community flooded by morons and petit-bougie assholes when the Souls series was ported to PC.

What do you guys think of console exclusivity?

The Next Cinematic Universe

>Squeenix and Disney have collaborated for decades now
>Kingdom Hearts is a massive franchise with something like 50 games that melds Final Fantasy and Disney movies together into one cohesive(?) whole
>Disney have utterly cocked up Star Wars
>Marvel seemingly in disarray after Infinity War
>Squeenix, like Marvel before it, is a large, profitable corporation with a large stable of characters and marketable franchises

My prediction is that as profits fall off from their Marvel products, Disney is going to seek out new mergers/acquisitions to improve their prospects. Squenix is a ripe property, which Disney will seek to exploit by purchasing and/or merging with ala Pixar, and then making a bunch of movies/series based on FF, and using SE's gaming clout to expand further into the extremely profitable world of gaming.

So I hope you're reading for the Kingdom Hearts cinematic universe, because it's fucking coming.

EVE Online Facing Second 'Summer of Rage' Fan Outcry

<CCP Games tried new monetization amid a ship shortage, and it's backfired

>On top of the scarcity patches, roughly one year ago, one of the largest wars in EVE’s history began. The war has raged hot for nearly a year, causing destruction on a scale that is unheard of in EVE’s 18 year history, further diminishing the resource stockpiles of players and driving the cost of the vessels players need to fight in the war through the roof. Outside of the financial toll the war has taken on player wallets, the mental stress of the conflict also seems to be building in players on all sides. War in EVE is one of the most interesting things the game has to offer, and probably one of the more realistic simulations of massive real life campaigns available in the virtual realm. Each side needs competent generals, massive supply chains, and most importantly, players to fight in battles that can last for hours across all time zones multiple days a week. Over time, these things take a measurable toll on people who are just trying to play a game to have some fun and blow off steam. With something close to half of the game’s active playerbase involved in the conflict, it’s easy to understand how the situation could create some tension among players. Further compounding the stress of war and waning pocketbooks are the latest changes to the already complex industry system. Almost all spaceships and the ammunition and equipment for those ships are produced by players. Resources must be harvested, transported, and combined to create the ships, and when those ships die in battle, they are gone forever. Over the course of the war, those ships have been dying by the thousands. Since the changes implemented in the last few months, the production chains, cost, and complexity of crafting most ships in EVE have become more complex and expensive, leading to a further burnout of already overtaxed industry players.

Go/Baduk

Does anyone on /leftypol/ play Go? I am interested in learning how to play it, but I am not sure where to start. That said, I think I will start by reading "Learn How to Play Go" by Janice Kim (Reddit recommended it.). I attached it here to this thread for anyone interested.

Also, a quote from Deleuze, among other things of course, is what really piqued my interest in Go. I'll reproduce it here:

>“Let us take a limited example and compare the war machine and the state apparatus in the context of the theory of games. Let us take chess and Go, from the standpoint of game pieces, the relations between the pieces and the space involved. Chess is a game of the State, or of the court: the emperor of China played it. Chess pieces are coded; they have an internal nature and intrinsic properties from which their movements, situations, and confrontations derive. They have qualities; a knight remains a knight, a pawn a pawn, a bishop a bishop. Each is like a subject of the statement endowed with relative power, and these relative powers combine in a subject of enunciation, that is, the chess player or the game’s form of interiority. Go pieces, I contrast, are pellets, disks, simple arithmetic units, and have only an anonymous, collective, or third-person function: “It” makes a move. “It” could be a man, a woman, a louse, an elephant. Go pieces are elements of a nonsubjectified machine assemblage with no intrinsic properties, only situational ones. Thus the relations are very different in the two cases.


>Within their milieu of interiority, chess pieces entertain biunivocal relations with one another, and with the adversary’s pieces: their functioning is structural. One the other hand, a Go piece has only a milieu of exteriority, or extrinsic relations with nebulas or constellations, according to which it fulfills functions of insertion or situation, such as bordering, encircling, shattering. All by itself, a Go piece can destroy an entire constellation synchronically; a chess piece cannot (or can do so diachronically only). Chess is indeed a war, but an institutionalized, regulated, coded war with a front, a rear, battles. But what is proper to Go is war without battle lines, with neither confrontation nor retreat, without battles even: pure strategy, whereas chess is a semiology. Finally, the space is not at all the same: in chess, it is a question of arranging a closed space for oneself, thus going from one point to another, of occupying the maximum number of squares with the minimum number of pieces. In Go, it is a question of arraying oneself in an open space, of holding space, of maintaining the possibility of springing up at any point: the movement is not from one point to another, but becomes perpetual, without aim or destination, without departure or arrival. The “smooth” space of Go, as against the “striated” space of chess. The nomos of Go against the State of chess, nomos against polis. The difference is that chess codes and decodes space, whereas Go proceeds altogether differently, territorializing and deterritorializing it (make the outside a territory in space; consolidate that territory by the construction of a second, adjacent territory; deterritorialize the enemy by shattering his territory from within; deterritorialize oneself by renouncing, by going elsewhere…) Another justice, another movement, another space-time.”

Let's design an indie game together

Hey, I thought about making this game for a while. Usually I have these random ideas and try to put them together. I'm more of a vision and feelings oriented guy. Problem is I'm lacking an idea to give the player some grand "Aha!" moment. You know what I mean if you've played a good game before.

Anyways, so this game is about capitalism. It's supposed to be a small open world game with PS1 graphics. Your character is a random nobody. Their specific identity is of no importance. The game starts off with leading you on the path that you have to find a job and get money to make something out of yourself. You are soon confronted that the kind of jobs you like are unavailable to you, because they have ludicrous demands for junior positions and the other jobs are undignified menial jobs that will hardly give you enough money for you to make it out of poverty. The idea is to make the player believe that's what they should do and the player is made unaware of the fact that he could play the game very differently at any time. The player looks for job and he replays these boring minigames, that represent his menial job, over and over and over again. The player is free to continue and perhaps at some point they will realize they can go about things differently. In the meantime the world building will inform about the conflicts and problems around him. Politicians making promises on stage, crime on the streets, some people ridiculously rich and others pathetically poor and factions slowly brewing in society of which the player can actually join. The player will be subject to random tragic events, like getting hit by a car and having astronomical bills to pay, getting mugged on the street (by a minority and yes that is an important), yada yada. Those inevitable events are supposed to make the player realize that working to fulfill whatever goals they had will not be possible. Because they will never earn enough money. This is when the second phase of the game starts. The player will now explore alternative ways of going about things and come into contact with various factions which will mimic real life factions we see in contemporary politics. These factions must be depicted with a genuine attempt at portraying them honestly, because if we are too on the nose with "HURR DURR WE STUPID NAZIS AND WE DUMB DUMBS BELIEVE JEWS ARE BEHIND EVERYTHING" or "HURR WE ARE DUMB SJWS DUMB DUMBS WHO THINK QUOTAS CAN SOLVE EVERYTHING" people who actually identify with these groups will feel unfairly misrepresented and not listen to the game's core message. The player may choose any of these factions and lead them to their own victory which will be followed by their miserable failure, since their worldview was misguided. The proper ending will be achieved by joining the socialist faction that unites all of the other factions. Anyways. I have this scene in my head how the player will sneak into some politicians home where they throw a big party and all the other important figures are invited. They will all look like pigs and make squeeling noises when they speak. They will talk about how they are using all of these factions as pawns to keep them divided and fighting with each other. They are also getting served human flesh and the player can find a stash of corpses in a cold room in the kitchen. It's supposed to be a metaphor how human suffering and pain is their sustenance.

Do you guys want to give me some feedback? Add some ideas? Anyone interested in working on that with me?

the long war mod for xcom 2012 doesn't make much sense.
Xcom like all games has a snowball effect, and the rest of the difficulty tweaking is in contradiction with this.
What would make sense is for more wins to lead to a faster increase in difficulty and a shorter game overall, since you're progressing through the challenge at a quicker pace. Then if you fuck up and lose a mission or some soldiers, the penalty is having to play more game, and its not a campaign ending setback like it is now(at least on the higher difficulties).

I don't expect many to know what im talking about. I had this thought in my head from when long war was still played 6 years ago, before xcom2.

It results in a different feel and fucked up art style. And yet gamers seem to eat this shit up and ask for more. Am I alone on this?

Once I was in highschool (around 2016-2018), I played a game that had sophisticated music & vibe like this Warplane inc. But I forgot the name.

The game was just flying & entering circles. Like a casual game. The era was set in WW1. So the protagonist (he's a young commoner Anglo) has a crush with a Kraut lady (she's a part of royal family in Fritz empire).

They both wrote & sent a letter each others until the war is started, they begin to stay away each others. The protagonist then been drafted into airforce to fight the Fritz.

Improvements of the N-Sane Trilogy as per Crashmania:
>All games have auto-saving now. You don't need to beat Tawna's bonus rounds in the first game to save, since the game unobtrusively does that for you every time you beat a level or reach a checkpoint.
>The Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment from Crash 2 and WARPED was added to the first game. Taking notes from the sequels, the first game now gives you extra masks if you die too many times before reaching a checkpoint, then replaces certain crates with checkpoints if you're still having trouble. Boulders will also slow down if you're having trouble outrunning them, like in the second game.
>The floor in Toxic Waste now has marks where the bouncing barrels will hit, making it much easier to position yourself accordingly.
>Chase levels in the second game have a trail of green squares before each dash pad so you'll know when you're approaching them.
>A bird can be seen flying into the alien sign post in Road Crash. This is a hint on how to reach the level Hot Coco.
>Some bosses get cartoony symbols over them when they're vulnerable to let you know it's safe to attack them.
>An aiming reticle was added to biplane levels.
>Biplanes no longer snap back to a position parallel to the ground. You can also slow down using the Circle button.
>Extra fruits have been added as hints above invisible platforms in the first game and after you hit the switch in Up The Creek.
>TNTs always explode nearby crates regardless of Crash's distance.
>Many precarious platforms now telegraph when they're about to fall down.
>The bounce crate behavior from WARPED was applied to the first two games, so you always get two fruits per bounce.
>It's easier to spin an enemy into a specific direction.
>The second island in Crash 1 is horizontally inverted to make the navigation consistent.
>The third island in Crash 1 adds a shortcut to N. Sanity Beach if you've unlocked Stormy Ascent.
>Bringing Aku Aku to Lights Out or Fumbling in the Dark starts him off in the illuminated state. Since checkpoints now remember which crates you've broken, an Aku Aku mask will spawn near you if you've broken the nearest Aku Aku crate before triggering the checkpoint.

Pic related for me, it pretty much ruined my youthful innocence. When I was a child I believed that there was such a thing as "good" and "bad" developers. That good ones existed who would never betray their fans on greedy marketing decisions, developers who were innately pure and reliable. Then I played this abomination and grew up.

good game thread

Is this game about late-stage capitalism? Or does that matter?

Is the relinking of the fire like capitalism? Trying to keep it going means it comes back weaker and weaker despite all their efforts to keep the fire going.

Sony

The PS5 pack in (Astro's Playroom) taps into PlayStation nostalgia while Sony didn't even give Vita developers advance warning in the closing of the Vita store this summer with some developers having to scrap their projects as they can't get it out in time.
It is like Sony hates its fans for still loving their old hardware, wanting them to only care about (and develop for) the PS5. Hell Sony's head of marketing (Jim Ryan) in 2017 basically said the PS2 was too old for anyone to really want to play anymore thus why Sony had no plans for backwards compatibility despite even the PS4 having the processing power to do PS2 software emulation at full speed with up scaling let alone the PS5.

capitalism mod

What about a mod of minecraft in which you relive eastern european history. So you begin like normally, then you find a village, if you make a certain advancement, or create certain tool to grow crops more efficiently, then you get to take villagers as slaves, but you can only do it by subjugating other villages, so that when you eventually run out of villages nearby then you can simply take them as serfs. then you implement a trading system like the one there is now, but make it so that after becoming masters some villagers become teachers of their craft and teach it to other villagers, and then make it so that at a certain point it becomes more profitable for the player to trade with these, and he becomes compeled to drive away serf villagers, and create capitalism.
Think about it, it could be made really naturally too, you would need to add a system so that you could fight a villager to subjugate him, and make him grow crops, and if he happens to be from your village you can only make him give you a quota of grain, but if he is from another village, then you are allowed to make him give you everything. so that the first one will be more profitable at the beggining, but as you get better tools, then they become more equalised, and you are incentivised to take serfs instead, and then when they are serfs you have to physically fight them to take them out of their landleft_communismLeft Communism
