I don't play games because I'm not a fascist.
Since I'm op, shilling for my game, it's also conveniently only 2.59usd right now on steam : https://store.steampowered.com/app/9420/Supreme_Commander_Forged_Alliance/It's
a strategy game with unparalleled scale and mechanics. The game features an economy with flowing resources much like total annihilation and the unit diversity is important. The multiplayer scene is holding on to this very day with tons of lobbies hosted at any given time.
Atm playing Mao's Legacy, Workers & Resources: Soviet Republic, and Shogun 2.
>>27778>only 2.59usd right now on steamget the fuck out>>27777based get
Currently building a world comprised of bunkers in the Sims. I'm a normie with an Albanian twist.
>>27790>get the fuck outIt's true though
does chess count as a game?cause i only play chess really.
>>27825i'd play on it but i can't read japanese m80
>>27825It's on boys, you don't need to start the server now (exept when nobody is in it, then it will close and you will have to turn it on again)
>>27775I play strategy games like WC3, SC2, CIV4, CK2, EU4, DF etc. Some roguelikes like C:DDAMount and Blade both single and multiplayer. A few crpgs like divinity.
I have a boring taste in games tbh, & sometimes I don't play a lot. What I play most of the time is; Rimworld, SimCity 4, Sims 2, CK2, Victoria II, HOI4 (Mostly for Kaiserreich), Darkest Hour, EU4,Stellaris, & Touhou stuff.I used play two MMOs quite a while back, but I have since left. That was Star Trek Online & Star Wars The Old Republic.Games that I play not so very often are, Sins of a Solar Empire, & any of the STALKER games (Have all of them). There's probably some others that I missed, but this is most of it.
I've been playing Starsector's new update and enjoying the new faction mechanics by conquering the other factions and establishing open-source space communism. Once CDDA's latest experimental builds unfuck themselves I'll probably get back into it though.
>>27832What's your rating
I mostly atick to rpgs tbh.
I haven't played a video game in more than a year, but a couple of days ago I picked up Freeciv and DC:SS again on a lark, and have lost so much time on them.
>>27997slightly better than a beginner (1200s on chess.com and 1400s on lichess)
>>27778God i loved this game aesthetically but i was so bad/autistic i would only play bots :(
Unhealthily obsessed with XCOM Enemy Within at the moment.>XCOM squaddies work their way up the ranks by frying aliens and defending humanity>EXALT look like a bunch of alt-right tryhards in business casual with scarves to hide their faggot faces, probably funded by mad transhumanist porkies with their super sekrit skyscraper penthouse base.
>>28589Ayyy my nigga. I am trying to ensure nobody dies every day coz I am too sentimental to them.But tbh this game is pretty capitalist realist though
>>28587Depends on the time of day, evening eurotime or american time has easily 30+ simultaneous lobby. If you wanna play with me my ingame name is Laticlave
>>28626why would that sound pathetic?
>>28626what's pathetic about that, fallout new vegas is fucking amazing
>>28708I'm almost done with a mostly honestman normal EW playthrough, and I haven't had a KIA since base defense. How bad will Long War Normal (or vanilla classic) fuck my shit up? >>28626New Vegas is great. Finished it in vanilla and now I want to do a modded playthrough
>>27775I'm playing through the Monster World series. What's that make me
>>28626>>28723>>28732The message of the game is to move on and i cant move on from it
>>28915>The message of the game is to move on how?
>>29057>old world blues>dead money's entire theme of letting go>Lonesome Road being a man holding on to the past to the point he is willing to nuke the future (in the future of Vegas)>Ellijah's entire story >Caesar's entire philosophical structure for the Legion is creating a new basis of society that will prevent the NCR from just baselessly repeating the errors of the US>an entire song dedicated to the idea of letting gogee anon, I dunno.
>>29061didn't meant to sound hostile, i played it once a while ago, no dlcs, and didn't get that message
>>29073Fair enough then, the message in the base game was mostly the Legion plus some implications you can see across the whole NCR, with most of that being in Freeside content people hardly noticed existing or in the BoS which a lot of people don't do much with.
>>28770Not him, but I've tried some long war and it is tough. But if you finish on normal then stick to normal on LW.
GTA Onlineforgive me I swear it's only to hunt oppressors with my molotok
My favourites:-Almost all Deus Ex games-System Shock 2-Kenshi-Prey-Tony HawkAnd Maken Shao
>>29599I also play it for catharsis however its really hard in (hitman 2?) to kill that revolutionary group, i never replay that mission. anyways yeah i make it a point to kill every billionaire (even if the mission doesn't require it) i can and leave the workers alone, even the police. I feel though i fall into liberal clap culture playing it to satisfy my revolutionary urges
>>29609I think the revolutionary group you mean is the Colorado mission in Hitman 2016. Funnily enough I think that mission has a few of the only explicit leftist assassination targets in the series (a Tamil Tiger and a Marxist turned An-Prim, alongside some Mossad agents).Yeah the level design in that one one sucks, and a lot of people hate it because it feels like Splinter Cell or something.
I played some free games recently that I recommend everyone, I pressume that anyone can run these games so here they goAll of our friends are dead:https://amon26.itch.io/aoofadIn

>>29702>no stick war
>>29831whyy is the ds emulator so shit and uses so much cpu
Lately I've been playing paradox's Imperator. It's come a long way since launch but it's probably going to be another year or two before it's at where it should be.It's astonishing really how paradox keeps making the same mistakes and having to reinvent the fucking wheel with every game that comes out. Their other grand strat games have "hunt pirates" options for their fleets, but Imperator doesn't. What the total fuck.
>>29835Play the PC port you dumdum.
>>31843 (me)>>29831Btw,I love this series,along with Danganronpa,VN without gameplay knock me out so fast compared to thoses.
>>31666Truthful trips of the beast
Someone should make a new /leftygsg/ threadThe posters on 4chan are insufferableWe should also work on making our own mods
>>33070>/leftygsg/ /e/ is calling, my friend.
vidya, just like anime, is for autists
>>33376who make up /leftypol/'s base.
Been playing ni no kuni 2.What grabbed my attention was the U.S. gets nuked in the opening cut scene https://youtu.be/NwK4AC0MgX0
>>33387I totally forgot this came out. Is it much better than the first one?
>>28626I really wish that Caesar's legion was cut and replaced with a socialist society instead

>>35665Day 46 onward will ramp up the difficulty a fuckton, with special ordeals and worse.Have you done any boss fight already? you need to do them all to get to the last day.
>>27775you should play Zero-K
>>37167i still play sometimes, total shitter though. used to be ok, long time ago now. come home from school, ignore everything, and just play source nonstop until it was time for school again. wasted a good couple years doing that
>>37167Babby Quake/UTjk it's fun
Any games set in the Soviet Union?
>>37167Used to play but it just makes me angry now. R6 Siege is more fun anyway.
>>36762>Ion Fury (Formerly Ion Maiden until Iron Maiden almost sued them) comes out>Basically Duke 3D 2 without Duke.>Resetera whips out some old discord screencaps where a dev shittalks SJWs>Radlibs go insane>The devs donate 10k to some transgender charity and change some textures (a shampoo bottle that said OGAY and a debug room that had fagbag wroten on it)>Now /v/ is mad at them, the radlibs are still mad, too.>Everyone is angry now.There is no winning with identity politics.
>>37200Atom is a fallout (1&2) style rpg set in the Soviet Union after a nuclear war. It's not great, but it's not terrible either. Solid B.
>>37289>The devs donate 10k to some transgender charity and change some texturesweew, “Shelly was actually a tranny all along” when?also v was mad at devs even before release, because Shelly actually wears body armor, and not some stripper outfit
>>37289Why would you browse /v/ in 2019
>>38536Reading all of this tells me how much the SJW trend is an anti worker movement, because they'd rather punish the devs working on the game and not the publisher itself.
>>38543sjw politics is just puritanism by another name. It only functions to shame workers for not being indoctrinated into the liberal niceties one gets in ivy league schools and private universities
I’m playing as the ancient communists, the Yellow Turbans, in TW3K. Pretty fun, peasant rebels liberating city after city from warlord filth and imperials alike. The Yellow Turbans seem pretty proto-communist to me, you can enact communal farming reforms and shit. I wish I knew more about ancient Chinese history so I could understand what the hell is going on in the game.
>>38996Awesome! I'll check it out, thanks anon.

Why are Japanese games so awful? Everything I have tried so far, is mostly a talking simulator.

>>39583JRPG's are even more of a waste of time than normal games though.
Anyone have any idea how I could get older Paradox games (CK, EU2, Victoria) to run on a Windows 10 machine?

That mission, (Colorado) is probably the worse designed mission in the whole game. I too never play it again after the first time.
>>37916>Fallout styleSounds like a pile of shit.
>>56066Fallout [b]1&2[/b]'''' style, not Bethesda's hiking sim.
>>56066>fallout 1 and 2>shitdownload some taste lmao
Are there any games like Victoria 2 but try to actually model socialist economics?If you're familiar with Vicky 2, when a country turns socialist or communist in the game, capitalists no longer invest in industry and taxes are set to 50% minimum for all wealth groups including capitalist and aristocrats who shouldn't even exist as an economic class.Also I like the Tropico series as a state capitalist simulator (that gave up on private property after poorly implementing a little in Tropico 4), but it would be nice if there was a capitalist simulator where you couldn't control the economy directly and where you can turn the economy into a state capitalist one and eventually move away from the for profit capitalist commodity form.
>>56169They dropped the ball by not making it multiplayer and forgetting to put anime characters in a vaporwave-style game.
>>36713Yea I had to restart coz I couldn't do Binah in time. Oh well…
>>56737>Are there any games like Victoria 2 but try to actually model socialist economics? I wish, but not from what I've seen. I think there are supposed to be some mods for Vicky or its sequel that try to fix its shitty economics sim though.
>>61875Ostalgie: The Berlin Wall. It's a grand strategy game where you play as the government of a Eastern European country from 1989 and 1992 and have to survive Perestroika.
>>56739>and forgetting to put anime characters in a vaporwave-style game.Yes obviously that is a must have feature
>>56671That looks like actual garbage (especially for 2000)
Why are recent Paradox titles so disappointing lads?
>>68481I haven't played any new paradox game, how are they? I play mostly CK2 and V2
>>68481is it capitalism's fault?
>>68481What's bad about them other than the constant DLC whoring? HOI4 is pretty good esp with KR.
>>68483My main issue is with HOI4, which feels just very dumbed-down and oversimplified from the previous games, I mean they only have 4 total political ideologies for Christ's sakeImperator apparently was very disappointing as well>>68484Pretty much
>>68481I swear they wont make vic3 because it touches to much on communism
>>68510>implying exile/avernum isn't about rebellious inmates of a giant death camp destroying multiple authoritarian, militant, racist, colonial empires to bring about an age of harmony>implying spiderweb's games in general aren't harshly introspective and ultimately condemnatory toward the totalitarian mindset>implying the innermost themes of influential high fantasy authors typically criticized by wokescold pomo pseuds, such as tolkien and howard, aren't the virtue of freedom and the folly of tyrants in the face of historical ephemerality>implying post-apocalyptic fiction in general, and the fallout franchise in particular, hasn't been thematically turned on its head by capitalism, from a grim warning of war and pollution, to fun propaganda for the popular masses about how great totes cool the destruction of civilization will be, and doom porn for the dangerous niche audience of ultra-reactionary "survivalist" "preppers"
>>68501Realmz had different graphics originally? I still have the old Mac version of Exile with Jeff's first attempts at cheesy graphics.
>>69302ThisSpiderweb games are based af. Not only do they include these kinds of narratives but they're good games too.
been playing Underrail recently, and it fucking kills methe best fucking turn-based combat system I've ever seen, somebody actually done stealth in a turn-based combat right for once holy fucktaking a cut throat feat and slicing and dicing fuckers out of stealth never felt THAT satisfying, sneaking arming traps taking that one sniper shot never felt THAT satisfyingand still, so much potential wasted, it just kills meI never understood this, you have the hard part nailed, but you fuck up the easy part, what in the actual fuckfirst, fucking energy shield mechanic ruins the game, even on DOMINATING difficulty you can craft a shield that protects you from both high impact and low impact attacksit's plain broken additional armor without much drawbacksecond, fucking sci-fi and post-apoc don't mix wellfucking ayy lmaos, time travel n shit don't mix with post-apoc YOU STUPID FAGGOT HOLY SHITthird, aestheticsit's all over the fucking place, everyone and their grandma is a fucking psi mage, hobos wielding plasma pistols, hi-tech every fucking where, great post-apoc you have there idiotdevs took fallout's broken combat and done it rightbut they took fallout's post-apoc world and done it WRONG
>>69354Been thinking about picking Underrail up, might skip on that after reading this.
>>69358don't skip it, combat alone is worth itplus beginning is somewhat okay, I had a blast trying various builds and roleplaying as a hobo living in caverns hunting some rathoundsthe wildlife variety is one of the best parts about this game, burrowers, crawlers, psi beetles, I fucking love them
>>69320I don't remember Exile II starting with different graphics, didn't the new graphics begin there? That's pretty cool to hear when developers pick up stuff from the fanbase like that.
>>71505>hardest difficulty level in USSR one called "Solzhenitsyn" The devs are pretty based
>>72171Looked up their VK page and they're legit commies, good to know
Obligatory mention of Papers, Please.Deus Ex is my all-time favorite.
>>72216I enjoyed the game when I played it but I was kind of annoyed at another "the only try choices are liberal democracy or fascist totalitarianism" political take.
>>27813It's not, but who cares?
anyone /hearthstone/ here? I got into it recently and thought is is quite nice
>>72476Can't tell if trolling, labour aristocrat, liberal, or 5D glow in the dark trying to get commies to get addicted to a game that requires thousands of dollars worth of packs to have fun.
>>72476Yeah, as far as I'm aware, Hearthstone is a tiny veiled "pay and pay and pay and pay to win" game
>>72476Not even the best TCG around. Play Netrunner instead
>>68491What sort of Galaxy brain do you have to find HOI4 simple? I always end up getting reked or stalemating by 1942, yesterday I managed to conquer the Soviet Union as Germany by 1940 and then lost 350k men trying to take the Benelux, and I still can't figure out how to deal with the Royal Navy The closest I've ever came to winning a game is tarpitting Japan to death as China and the n immediately attacking India and Indochina once I'd yeeted Tokyo into oblivion but the Allies fucked me in the ass by 1947 How do you actually play this game well?
>>72152Nope, Exile I & II both got a v2.0 (v1.1 on Windoze?) update about a month before Exile III shipped, adding its Realmz 5.0-ized graphics.>>72479All CCGs/TCGs are pure cancer. The survivors of future post-civilization will one day be forced to send a time assassin back to the early '90s to murder Richard Garfield and burn down WoTC to save civilization from the Worst Korean freemium DLC advergame overlords spawned by his retarded booster packs. Play something that doesn't have a predatory business model, like >>72489 suggested.
Starcraft is free right now from Blizzard's website.
I’m just playing a whole lot of war thunder
>>73058>right now<slowpoke.pictBlizz made SC1 free back in 2017>>73103>it requires Windows 7<[b]Windows XP[/b] or Windows VistaThey did remove support for 95/98/ME/NT>and Wine along with itUpdate your WINE to the latest staging version, or use an up to date preconfigured variation like Lutris/Proton/etc.
>>72548What part of the game are you having trouble with, the military movement/deployment or something else?Also, you would probably find it easier if you weren't playing as countries that lost the war in real life lol.
>>73179And XP. Basically they patched Brood War to only be compatible with the Windows network stack found in 7 and up.
>>73414Its primarily the Naval aspect of the game and bringing it all together, so to speak I can make a really good army and air force and shit on one or two major powers but by the mid game I start to bleed to death and end up red or yellow bubbling when attacking for ages My naval game is a constant disaster, even playing as someone like Britain I end up with a massive navy that I don't understand how to use and usually either end up stalemated with the Germans in Northern France and slowly being chipped down or lose all of my actually good men trying to launch Naval invasions through the med into Italy or onto the German CoastBasically I always start out doing well but fuck up the execution
>imperator Rome Cicero updatesploosh
>>72548>What sort of Galaxy brain do you have to find HOI4 simple?When you cut your teeth on hoi/2 and/or Victoria hoi4 and it's fuhrermana is babbymode
>>72465Maybe. My main objection is just that it's usually in the libshit anti-French revolution vein, like Bioshock Amerimutt, where the only two options ever are pluralistic but corrupt and inefficient "democracy" or efficient (but so necessary!) totalitarianism. It's just the lazy perpetuation of sterile bourgeois ideology. With Frostpunk you basically have the destruction of capitalism and the expansion of a universal proletariat due to every individual's labor being necessary for everyone's survival. I find it really hard to believe that new political organizations and ideologies wouldn't arise in the face of a global Frigocaust, or that they'd be utterly dystopian in nature.
>>73561Did we play different games? I seem to remember frost punk giving you the choice between an militarised state a la war communism or a weird theocracy Can you survive the end game without choosing either? How do you manage the little panic/cuck out meter?
>>73645I'm probably misremembering, because I think you're right about it being either a militarized authoritarian state or a theocracy. I honestly haven't played it in a while due to a massive hdd failure.I'm just complaining about the general tendency for there to be no possibility of successful, pro-social political alternatives in bourgeois fiction. The options usually tend to be some sort of authoritarianism, be it military or theocratic or whatever, libshit democracy (which is almost always shown to be terrible "but better than the alternative"), and anything different if portrayed as idealistic utopianism doomed to fail because whatever its ideals, it always devolves into authoritarianism anyway (a la the revolutionaries in Bioshock).It isn't like the tone of the game doesn't warrant that kind of pessimism, I just think it's a tired bourgeois take.
>>73700Also, those damn sneaky Chinks nuked me to smithereens. So much for left unity.
>>73690Is this a mod?
>>27775I just finished up cobbling together a GBA with an IPS screen from some broken units I got from a junk shop and a parts kit from ebay Fun little electronics project and Castlevania on the bus to and from work and in bed is v.comfy
>>73700Superpooper 2 explicitly embraces Milton Friedman's pseudoscientific bullshit, and you have to watch inflation, never have the government be in charge of industry, because it's slower and less responsive (just a flat 30% tax is fine).At least Realpolitik are just retarded liberal memers.>muh totalitarianism>>73707Nope. It's from a dev diary. Republicans next week.
>>73710It's been a while since I've played HOI4 but Jesus Christ that seems like a ton of focuses
>>73713The fully embraced 35 days ones, don't worry.
>>73710>Superpooper 2 explicitly embraces Milton Friedman's pseudoscientific bullshit, and you have to watch inflation, never have the government be in charge of industry, because it's slower and less responsive (just a flat 30% tax is fine).I figured as much. Nationalizing anything is just for roleplay purposes. I still liked SP2 more than Realpolitik though, 15minutes in I was already bored to death with it and it seemed to be even more janky. Especially with the pointless or even broken treaties/unions.
So apparently there will be DLC of Afghanistan, DPRK, and Cuba for Ostalgie.http://imtw.ru/topic/57173-dlc-ostalgie-afganistan-kuba-kndr/
does anyone want to play anything sometimes? maybe we could get a group game of something like CIV going. Or worms armageddon i dunno.
>>74938whats it play like? civ3?
>>73690I always like the asethtics of the focus tree despite not liking these game. I remember seeing a /leftypol/ variant on setting up bunkerchan but it seemed imcomplete. We should totally expand on it
>>74949Depends on the ruleset you're using. You could do civ1 rules and isometric tiles, civ2civ3 rules with hexagons, etc.
Let's play Soldat
>>75037You want to play vidya, anon?
i play a lot of hearts of iron 4/heart of darkness, vicky 2, and tf2
>>47994What do you mean? I've played for years and the only thing I've bought is a couple stash tabs. The cosmetic microtransactions are ridiculously expensive and often terribly ugly, but they're not in any way necessary to purchase.
I really hate this image
>>75404Damn thought I was the only one
I'm playing Borderlands 3 right now, it's pretty good but I'm disappointed how casual it is. On true vault hunter mode it becomes even easier somehow
>>78988I know what that is, but where's it from?
>>78988>>78993Looks pretty decent ngl, although I kinda like the implied fish hook theory that centrists are the same as Stalinists. Is kinda funny.
>>78999Democratic forces in Spain seeking help from Soviet Union is the historic path, you dummy. Stalinists doing the same is just a no-brainer.
>>79008I know, I still find it funny.Also the anarchist line looks fucking kek tbh. Is it bad that I think the best part of all of this though is that a lot of it will get added to Kaiserreich but better?
>>79019They also have a kind of "conquer the world or be conquered" situation with geopolitics. Is topkek.
>>79025Doesn't that basically describe the game in general?
>>79019Anarchists being unaligned is ridiculous and will really showcase the limitations of vanilla hoi4's political mechanics.
>>78988>Against Stalinism and TrotskyismPossible hint at a USSR rework?
>>79051Trotsky as USSR leader has been in HOI4 since launch though (at least technically, of course it was originally broken).
>>79040Doubly ridiculous since the basically unused 'subideology' system already has anarcho-communism, its all just a mess, the paradox devs are naturally trying to be better and more like kaiserreich since its the new standard and no one will buy their dlcs if all they add is uninspiring garbage like the commonwealth focus trees but they're already coming up hard against the limitations vanilla has, they should've reworked ideologies early or at least expanded the subideology system to be meaningful, now its kinda late and we're getting unaligned (franco), unaligned (carlists) and unaligned (anarcho-syndicalist)
>>79051USSR is getting reworked but not in this dlc, probably the next one. The focus is just referring to the fact that the POUM is being presented as being against the Stalinists and the Trotskyists.
>>79036No, anarchists ascendant in Spain will piss off every single other country in the world.
>>78988yeah overall pretty predictable. I'm kinda bored of paradox just going "xddd fascism means you get to have 100 million manpower and also fun, and communism means you have these cool looking focuses that do nothing :DDDDD". Like don't get me wrong this tree looks great, but what can you do? I guess attack portugal? Really? Meanwhile the fascsit tree lets you literally get wargoals against all of south america or claim like half of north and west africa. Like look at practically every single tree they've made so far. The only country where going commnist is both the most practical AND most fun is Mexico. And this shit bleeds over to Kaiserreich like a fucking plague as well, you only get to have any fun in that mod if you natpop or some other reactionary shit.
>>75408this is embarrassing for the entire human race
>ctrl-f factorio>not foundsmh
>>79051no way my dude. That's a whole new best to tackle, they'll probably have to "use" an entire dlc on good ol' Stalin. if I had to take a guess we'll have a greece focus tree in the new DLC. And I think we also might get an ideology rework as well, since Anarchists being non-aligned kinda just seems like a placeholder for me.
>>79071that's not the point. I don't want them to go full revanchist I want to go "yeah this game I'll play communist Spain and not because I wanna larp, but because it's actually fun". idk dude, weekly stabilty -1% just doesn't seem fun.
>>79076Yes, the Soviet Focus tree is a trainwreck that will need a DLC all to itself.Italy and Belgium reworks probably next.
>>79078Anarchists are meant to play at 0 stability and get >>79019 an Economy Law to offset it all to themselves.
>>85537Jim is doing his part>>85559
>>78988Where the /leftypol/ edit of bunkerchan's focus tree? Anyone have it?
CAN WE PLEASE START A SS13 SERVER?
>>85563By being a Kaufmanesque contrarian like always?
>>79065Are you complaining that commie government can't just go to war with everyone around them? I mean, that's kinda what you would expect right?
>>85537>soypocalypsePretty cringe tbh
>>85587Actual Bunkerchan mod when?
>>79079Blegium? Are you sure? They did even less than the Dutch. Not to mention most of the Dutch national focus tree already involves taking over Blegium or allying with them in some form, which straight up makes a unique focus tree for them pointless. Countries like Greece, Bulgaria, Iran and Iraq all had relatively interesting stuff happening in this time period. The reason I'm convinced that we'll see a Greek tree is because of the supression/occupation rework, especially now that armoured cars were reveaed to also be tied to this mechanic. The greek partisan movement, along with the free french and tito were the most important liberation movement in Europe. Also the Metaxas dictatorship is fascinating part of history, at least for me and I'd love it if it was better represented in the game.

>>108774I would but i'm not sure there's enough meat on the bone. I watched the cutscenes on youtube the other day and the most interesting things i caught are *spoilers*>1. ypg fighting against russia with US support(lol)>2. the developers blaming russia for the warcrime they committed, valley of death or whatever. oh there was some stuff about threatening a terrorist with harm to his family but. its so soft and unoffensive. the terrorist was already established as a bad guy previously and all that. like who are they kidding? we know they're doing worse shit morally than this on the daily. The US military or who agrees to help movies and games with their realism as long as they agree to follow certain rules. For example, I remember the CIA threatened to pull all support from the netflix Narcos series if the showrunners continued to talk to pablo escobars son. So everything in the game is approved to show the US in the best possible light. But still, even Zero Dark Thirty was more edgy than this.
>>109836>I remember the CIA threatened to pull all support from the netflix Narcos series if the showrunners continued to talk to pablo escobars sonwhat the fuck
>>109844>>109836There was a thing like this with the Marvel movies. The pentagon was originally going to be involved, but they didn't like the plot including corrupt people in high positions of the MIC (lmao) so they pulled support and instead the movie(s) used fictional organizations.

>>109850This kind of thing has certainly worked a lot in the public perception of the US Government internationally as some really special govt where things work the way the should
Outer Worlds is frustrating the fucking shit out of me. I don’t think anybody involved in the game even bothered to open a wikipedia page on anarchism or socialism. On one hand you have a fascist hypercapitalist nightmare, but the only other options are what? Some hippie liberals who live in the woods, or a literal religious cult. Where the fuck is the actual leftist thought? It has been completely absent. Most of the time the game doesn’t even give me an option that isn’t corporate bootlicking.
>>108887>>108887Could someone inform me what kind of interesting things you can actually do in those 3 games? For the most part when I do a playthrough I end up as just plain old boring ML with Cybersyn / OGAS (saw the Strasserist Germany option once and also know Posadist USSR is possible in CitK though).I imagine the first 2 have a lot of hidden stuff, but does the China one has it too? There the only paths I ever see are hard line Maoist / Stalin-esque / moderate / Dengist / full lib, which seem pretty sensible paths, so where is the weird shit at?

Opinion: Gaming as an industry sucks. You should never purchase games. You should always play offline games. You should always game on linux. Not Windows or Google/Android.
I mostly play rpgs because I'm almost a grognard but not autistic enough to get into HOI and similar shit. Currently playing DOS2 and having fun, despite being theoretically worse compared to PoE2 Deadfire in many respects I'm finding it to be a lot more fun, especially with Divine War and Odinblade mods.

Does look interesting, although ngl, I have no idea what kind of politics they're trying to put forward as the ruling party in this game seems to be some kind of nazbol party
Played through this yesterday, thanks for the link, it was fun when new mechanics were being added but at certain bits it gets a bit grindy (especially at the end of stage 1 if you don't have enough memory). Ah well.
weren't there like some missions in ussr where you kill some sovjet politicians or something? I love the charm of the game (at least the old ones) but it seems like the new games are more about "the evil secret elites" then actually killing bourgies.
Looks good from what I've seen of it a while back. I think it's just a satire of British TV.

I found this game on kotaku. It is a fps in the style of super mario 3d games made as a challenge by some sean noon.
I personally have always loved to have an fps that is just this in this colourful style. I love DOOM but all the metal blood and gore is traumatizing. Wish there was a more vivid alternative.https://sean-noonan.itch.io/super?download
ALSO HOW THE FUCK DO I DOUBLE JUMP ON A CONTROLLER
ID actually intended to make a Commander Keen shooter with a in-depth storyline while keeping the cartoony art styles instead of Doom. Until the two Johns barked at the idea.
i've never play commander kneen but yeah a fps in that style would have been awesome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtQjGPfkEe8
There's plenty of Doom wads that have colourful aesthetics, tbf. Off the top of my head, Adventures of Square, Reelism, Action Doom 2 and Doom: The Golden Souls 2 are p okay. Also you might like Lovely Planet even if it's really barebones as a FPS
I'll try that stuff. I tried to play wolfenstein and almost vomited.
why the fuck am i so weak. WHY DOES MY BODY REJECT THE VIOLENCE

Finished Doom Eternal, it was pretty good.
The game starts off really slow in my opinion, but after the first two levels or so, it starts getting really good.
All in all, the game is fantastic.
Spoiler-wise, The Doom Slayer is confirmed to be the original Doomguy. He's also pretty much immortal, and Samuel Hayden may or may not be a Maykr. I got that impression, at least.

TF2 is still great but at the moment it's going through a difficult period. Cheaters (bots) are in almost every single game.
Almost every second server now, as soon as I hear NICE SHOT or some shit, I usually nope the fuck out of there. Although, as many of these bots have "RACIST" in their name, the players can often fight off waves of them with votebans which can actually be quite fun sometimes when the server acts together.
yep. sadly because of the new vr tech demo they are releasing tf2 is put on hold indefinitely.

WHY WAS I BORN WITH CONSOLE PLEB GENES
>>7440>FPS with controller
why the fuck would you do this to yourself
It's comfy if you were raised as a console kiddie. I mean like imagine playing Halo with keyboard.
Are you implying that for a typical 3D game with strong emphasis on aiming precision and timing, a keyboard where directional input is typically formed by four binary inputs on two axes (total 8 directions), is more appropriate than a controller where the same directional input is formed by non-binary joysticks?
t. haven't played with a controller for around 8 years
One of PC's inputs may indeed be digital, but mouse control is in general so much more precise and accurate for camera control that it overcomes all the advantages of two analog sticks.

>>17471>learn more about polish culture
isn't this the game where the descriptions are literally copied from wikipedia? lul
Very good game that made my opinion turn completely on it over the last month. I used to think its the worst Fromsoft game after it chewed me and my old-gen PC with Guardian Ape and Spirit Monk. But after Elden Ring I said to myself "fuck it, one more try", played it from the start with good framerate this time and… Its the best Fromsoft game. It is amazingly fun to do the parry duels, and it feels really rewarding. I think to an extent I might just had something click in my head (literally didn't rage a single time, even though Owl, Owl (Father) and Demon of Hate all killed me at 1% health/poise on them left once), because now I love this game. Still think its bullshit how finite some consumables are, but that wasn't too much of a biggie, since I pracitcally didn't use any of them outside of pellets and flasks. And it really felt good that I managed to beat the final set of bosses without much issues. One-shotting True Corrupted Monk after being forced to learn for a good few dozen on Owl (Father) was insanely rewarding. Now the game is my new stressball as I give in a few shots at the chalange modes from time to time. I hope one day they port Bloodborne to PC, because I also used to look down on it for seeming too fast, but after Sekiro I'd really love to give it a shot.
Been playing this game, it's about a socialist earth fighting against climate change.
Got my ass kicked a couple of times.https://play.half.earth/
>>17809>Transition rapidly to solar and wind, adopting lots of long term investments in research and infrastructure>Not rapidly developing grid energy storage, hoping everything would be fine <- (clueless)>Get ousted after second planning cycle because every place on earth was having brownouts
10/10 really fun game
Fucking fun game, I kicked its ass on the first playthrough, but that's probably because I have played Fate of the World a lot which is much harder than this.
I did massive nuclear power investment rather than renewables, the technology just isn't there at the game start (or IRL) for a massive renewables push. I also did all types of curriculum other than consumerist, not sure if that helped to get the population on side. I got a shitload of political power from getting rid of fossil fuel energy generation (like 350 in one turn which let me accelerate research into everything) but I kept on using fossil fuels for cars/planes/etc until I banned/electrified those.
Also I did meat free mondays, then flexitarian, then mandatory vegetarianism, then mandatory veganism within 25 years. It would have been impossible to achieve emissions reduction without it. I eventually got under 1 degree of warming in 2065. Oh and I also made a space colony and space elevator so that's cool. Everyone loved me except the authoritarian, malthusian, and consumerist.
I also had the 'Earth Liberation Front' kick off under my tenure and do a couple attacks but literally I saved the planet and all animals, fuck off, just because I didn't go anprim.
Thanks for the rec. I beat it on my third try or so. I guess if living until the end is beating it. I don't really know what the game was mad at me about because I had cut emissions to zero. I researched every technology and did every policy except for the space and bioshpere ones.
It actually needs to be a lot harder, because once you get over the initial hump strategy doesn't matter at all.
This is what you do.
Invest just 1 point into all the technologies you think are useful. Just 1 point so you can start researching as many as possible and because they don't start counting down until you activate them with that single point. When the research finishes during a five year plan, you get 5 extra points. Next main thing you're going to want to get down point wise is the emissions. Contentedness keep in the safe zone. I eventually had temperature heading down as well, I think that's highly dependent on the emissions and only the cloud technology decreases temperature. You'll get a little cooling bonus from a volcano usually somewhere mid game I think. With fuel and energy take them out of the highest emissions sources and spread them to the lower emissions sources, because it seems to me they have a rate that they build, so if you dump it all into one source, you'll have electricity shortages. I don't really understand what the shortages even did though, because I had high contentedness and shortages. But I didn't even figure out some of these mechanics and I still beat it. Oh yeah and as far as the political power points. As you know, you get that one second life refill with the 50 points. I'd say beginning it's going to be better to spend all the points. You shouldn't have a negative plan that cycle. I'd say do what you do until you get saved by the hero, then maybe save that 50 for a few more cycles, then research plans start coming in and you start getting a lot of extra points, plus the positive effects of those researches and infrastructure.
So considering you're probably going to be able to complete nearly every research and infrastructure and policy by end game, eventually strategy doesn't really matter at all because you'll start getting 100s of political power points every cycle.
Oh yeah and it doesn't show it in the pic. But by the end every cycle the people were "ecstatic." Probably because they didn't have to work anymore and lived in fully automated luxury capitalism.
You need to reduce warming under 1 degree, it starts over 1 degree at the beginning so you'll need to do carbon capture and/or geoengineering to reduce it that much. That's why my biggest influence was the accelerationists, because they like that stuff.
I've heard the lore is good sci-fi, but I dont kow. You are talking about the first one?
Making a world feel "alive" is incredibly dificult, so much that the almost every open world game uses the excuse of using nature as its enviroment to justify the emptiness. I dont know if GTA VI is gonna meet the expectations people have for an open world urban
Bold to assume GTA VI will ever release and Rockstar won't just release GTA V Online 2.
Wow, it managed to do something incredibly difficult that many developers struggle with: being pretty to look at. Very fun game.
'pigs to man' moment
so many fucking fash in fps WHY WHY WHY

tf2 but all the soviet larpers counter them
heavy being a russian character helps
it's impossible to not start a communist heavy chain versus some kid larping as a nazi
everybody just re-creates WII
all nazis can do is have decals with edgy 2010 memes and one or two medic hats meanwhile communists can pull off entire soviet larp fits in tf2
Or you know, just keep updating the current Online mode for another decade since GTA V is still a solid game and they are going to release a remaster anyway.

Though it's pretty depressing that we're still basically in the exact same place today when Half Earth came out as we were when FotW came out.Also I love how the normal optimistic 'next turn' theme fools you by only transitioning into the 'bad end' theme 10 seconds in on the turn you lose
>What games do leftypol play?
i dunno man did you check the catalog to see what people here play before making this filler thread?
So I realize you have to do all regions at once, and I seem to have enough money from tobin taxing china/latin america, to fund research and I learned to country-jog that to not waste years. But it seems I need to target policies for reducing resource usage better. For example coal is clearly the number one prob in China. Reforestation clearly a priority in Latin America. I am wary about aerosols and tend not to use them at all. Is this the missing thing? How do you use them if at all?
The only valid answer is Workers & Resourcess: Soviet Republic
How the fuck did you manage that? Just cut all power/fuel/etc generation?
Dont like the aesthetic. Simcity 5 still is the most beautiful city builder, but I have hope for Cities Skylines 2.
I won the game first playthrough but now I can hardly get out of the starter years because contentment drops too low, I didn't know replacing energy as fast as possible did anything? There's literally no warning or hint otherwise, and if you lose too quickly you can't even check the shortages
Pic related is how bad it got the first time, now my contentment just drops an insane amount and won't tell me why
I'm going to try doing it without touching food or electricity and just using policies and research etc, see if it still keeps on being retarded
It happened to me too. I think that's a bug, try to refresh the page
I am playing Hatred right now and it's pretty epic. MP5 and AK are OP for long range attacks. Shotgun is good for close combat and immediate crowd control. Crouch unless you want to waste all your ammo.
hitman: world of assasination. it's kinda liberal-ish, but i like it>an apolitical hitman genetically designed somewhere in the urss bc communists wanted to make "perfect humans" for some reason, goes around the world killing rich fucks, drug lords, and after a meeting with an old friend, he goes to kill the equivalent to the illuminati
bretty good anyways
Nah I don't know what's wrong with it, it just wants to be a little cunt now, either the emissions get too high and it causes people to tardrage, or you phase out the emissions too fast and people tardrage.
I've found that it works better if you only do 1-turn energy mix changes, rather than do a 3 or 4 turn one, that seems to make the AI fuck up and not make enough power plants to replace the old energy getting removed so you get brownouts. Also don't do all renewables right at the start because you don't have good battery tech/smart grids/etc so you can't supply the population well enough. You need to do nuclear at the start and then you can transition to solar/wind later if you want to (I didn't bother personally cause nuclear is gucci, though obviously uranium would run out at some point so if there's no fusion then you would have to switch eventually).
Oh yeah, and I never do organic agriculture because it's not worth it IMO.>>18250
Lol yeah I got my game broke too on my 'try to exterminate the third world' game, I met all the conditions for success but my extinction rate was at '_/60' rather than '0/60'. Ah well. Now maybe I'll play FotW again, not played it in years though.
Some screenshots from my playthroughs
For anyone who is playing FotW, apparently the game is still in a half-broken state with many bugs (I guess sales weren't that good, so the game was abandoned). I am going to try installing the 'unofficial patch' from the Steam forums, and I will let you guys know how it goes.
Releasing a game full of bugs in 2011 is a good way to not get many sales
Anyone played the Cauldron of War games? abstract little strategy game that takes place on the eastern fronthttps://store.steampowered.com/app/1265220/Cauldrons_of_War__Barbarossa/https://store.steampowered.com/app/1497230/Cauldrons_of_War__Stalingrad/>>18257
Game gets stuck on a screen occasionally which forces me to close it with task manager but otherwise didn't notice any bugs
I've heard the unofficial patch makes it easier so Im trying to beat the game vanilla first.
It's weird because from what I remember, the game was easier when it first came out, then got harder after subsequent updates and seemed more buggy. Perhaps they messed up the code trying to add the later DLC expansion.>>18259
When I say bugs I mean more like stuff behind the scenes, that is effects not working correctly in the simulation, for example apparently flooding of coastal regions decreases economic activity and so on, but doesn't decrease energy use and so on correspondingly due to the reduced activity, which means that when the economy recovers to the previous level, emissions will be a lot higher.>>18259
Yes, I've been playing it for like 3 hours now, doing the original 3 degrees scenario, and it definitely seems easier, or at least more predictable. I feel the guy making the patch may have taken a few too many bold steps in redesigning parts of the game. For example, he made you get all political, energy, welfare etc offices for free in all countries on the second turn, which seems a bit unbalanced to me. Also, the fact that all mechanical inputs are displayed is sort of nice, but also kind of takes the mystique out of the game and hurts immersion. Overall though, it's nice that random economic crashes and famines seem much less common, I haven't had either so far. But that also seems a bit too easy. Some of the most impactful times of the game were the famine events, but at the same time, the systems or issues that caused the famines were often very opaque and you wouldn't really know what the issue was unless you were REALLY paying attention.
TLDR: I think the unofficial patch has the right idea to make the game a bit less challenging/seemingly broken but went a bit too far in the other direction to making it to predictable/easy.
anyone play fps games? how the fuck do you aim against Adad spammers? any techniques? Should I just run away lol. any tips or videos would help(mainly on aiming)
Don't play shit games like CSGO where you can exploit them so easily
Yeah, I tried playing it too and the UI made me just be like…. yeah I'm not down for this right now
Aim training. That's literally all you need to do.
ok i went on a whole binge on what aim training is and created a routine on kovaak. hopefully this helps.
Look at the God Of War specs. GOW is not open world but has better graphics. Both run on ps4 so yeah. Maybe you could play 720p 30fps.
So I've finished one ending. Very good game. If the soundtrack wasn't so dull and forgettable, it would be a masterpiece. Fromsoft should also learn to code. The last fights with all the particles and effects are a pain in consoles.
I would definitely play. I'm thinking about making a steam account not attached to my irl identity or something for leftypol games. Thoughts?

just happy fatlus doesnt hate pc as much anymore
Why Somerville bad? And Sea Of Thieves and Dead Space remake good?
I prefer a new ip than a sequel. Having said that, Starfield looks awful.
just didn't like the trailer of somerville
Remakes and updates I didn't judge as good or bad cause they don't deserve to be on a show about new games coming to your console, cause they aren't fucking new
tried the demo for this https://playsapiens.com/
it drops in a few weeks
It's yet another city builder set in pre-historic times. These things usually suck and are just re-skins of Banished with even less to do, but this one has been in development for 7 years apparently so we'll see.
1st picrel is what I managed to do in the two days you get to play in the demo, the rest are from the devs.
>>18882>two in-game days to play a citybuilder
dang that's harsh
I'm waiting for the demo for Terra Invicta tomorrow, it's from the Long War devs and looks pretty fun.https://store.steampowered.com/app/1176470/Terra_Invicta/
Outer Worlds wasn't as good as NV anyways
Yea, does not mean making a new Fallout would be bad tho.
Just hoping for a Fallout game as good as NV.
ah yes, the porn bait character
I got hyped for a new Dragon's Dogma because of the anniversary and got nothing.
There is a slight chance to be announced on Capcom's own conference, but they said no new games.
Overwatch is made for porn.
wow they made a whole game based on porn?
How ya doing you old egg!
I guess, I just feel like even if Obsidian made another Fallout game it would totally fail to live up to the hype>>18890
Why did they even go to the conference if they have no new games lul
Looks pretty cool anon, the demo is up now.
I might give it a shot, let me know what you think
Will do, I've got work for the next 8 hours, agh
looking to play tales of vesperia soon, i've played the first 15 minutes just to see if it werks on my laptop, and i have a question - is the game going to stick to the way it's been lowkey based up until now? the first thing that happens is the mc shittalking nobles and going to take the stuff that's been taken from his commoner community back by beating up the guards and strolling into the pmc district with the intention to beat up the noble and take his shit
Overall, the interface is terrible, the tutorial is terrible, but the game itself feels like it could be pretty fun. However, the other factions didn't really fight back any so it felt a little too easy to achieve global dominance. I managed to control Greater Russia and the USA/Mexico without anyone doing anything to stop me, which felt a little weak. Also, I barely encountered any aliens, other than seeing them constantly come to Earth and slam their ships into it, they didn't even attack any of the space stations/bases I built. It seems like the only way to 'fight back' is to build spaceships in orbit, which takes several years at least to set up. Since the demo has no save function, it's hard to get to that point, I just quit now after playing for about 6 hours and still wasn't particularly close to making any, though to be fair a lot of that time was wasted with not really understanding the mechanics.
For some reason screenshots won't attach to this post but I made a Eurasian Union with all of Russia's allies, and the EU basically fell apart because the other factions kept pushing the countries they controlled into leaving. I wasted a lot of time trying to make Russia bigger, not just cause I'm a crazy Duginist but I just wanted to have a bigger unified base to operate from, and reduce my administrative burden. I made a bunch of space stations and even a base on the Moon but they all were just using the starting labs so not that useful. I should have spent a lot less research time/energy on pursuing the 'New Warsaw Pact' tech but hey, can you blame me.
I wish saving was in the demo though cause then I could actually do some space combat. As it is, it looks like we'll have to wait god knows how long before we can play the actual game. The only release date is '2nd half of 2022'.
I'm really mad that it makes fast breeder reactors essentially a red herring; what the hell are these then: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integral_fast_reactor
Yeah, I never do it anymore in my runs.
Game gets good when you can start flying around. That should have been one of the first abilities honestly.
Ok combat meh but damn it has some serious difficult spikes. Maybe I'm bad but right now I'm stuck. That fucking fridge with the holes in the ground.
Been playing Cepheus Protocol. It's a bit of a technical mess but much like Terra Invicta I feel like there's a gem of a good game under there. Hopefully it will end up getting a bit more polished. I just killed patient zero after basically getting everyone on the entire island killed. Whoops.
pirated and am now heavily addicted to bannerlord
I got hooked on Mindustry campaign, that was fun.
Is flashing live USBs a game?
Not the right place for this but Im not one to makes threads
Something reminded me of Star Citizen recently (I think it was trending on reddit) and ever since I've been morbidly curious in its "development"
It's probably been 5 years or more since this game has even crossed my thoughts and Im just amazed that it's still chugging along, raising more money then ever and with little to show for it.
The last thing I heard is that they are commiting resources into making realistic cloth simulation for bedsheets and such.
One thing is an adventure game that can and should be filled with as many miscellaneous details as possible, and another is a long overdue MMO space sim that lacks polish in regards of most basic gameplay mechanics and is still plagued by bugs including immersion-breaking ones.
Why in the fuck would I want to immerse in a videogame, I just want fun gameplay mechanics
Been having fun with Rising Storm 2: Vietnam lately.
Pic reminded me of this trucking simulator us leafs played in elementary school https://classicreload.com/crosscountry-canada.html
You'll need to look up an instruction manual to play it

Game modding is the best thing to a game's longevity, even if a game is bad just by being modable it can become famous, so it makes sense anon.
I tried to play Skylines but couldn't really get into it this time. Also what's pic4? Custom assets on Skylines or?
>>19695>Also what's pic4? Custom assets on Skylines or
Yeah, and while Im at it
pic 1 is Transport fever 2
pic 2 is Transpor fever 1
pic 3 is Workers and Resources Soviet Republic
all i do is keep playing the binding of isaac repentance
i don't know why i'm so fucking addicted to this game
smt iii is indeed fun. i remember starting it up on new years 2021, and having played several smt games that point, i thought i'd do well on the hard difficulty. i was wrong
Decided to try Soviet Republic for more than 20 mins, I think it's safe to say I don't understand this game and my creation is trash
Why is the game so finicky about land levelling, angles, and building clearance
Yea getting bodied by trash at the beginning of the game on hard is the nocturne experience
Jesus fuck, it's already hard enough keeping the power station supplied but now it gets to the 20th November and everyone in the town instantly dies/escapes because I haven't set up heating yet. Fucking fuck. I even tried reloading to fix it and set up the heating but it didn't work and every building went to like 40% occupancy.
I guess I wasted a bunch of time/money/effort trying to set up building materials production when that shouldn't even be a priority at all. What the fuck am I gonna use all this cement/concrete/prefab blocks even for when I can't even keep the power on consistently. It doesn't help that the AI is retarded and people go on busses to nowhere and argh.
Looks good, you are making me consider reinstalling. You should set up a railway to the border to export coal and eventually agricultural products
The game really is finicky though, I like to play on mountainous maps and it's a pain in the ass trying to build literally anything
Does anyone want to coop Dark Souls 1 or 3 with me, at SL70/SL60 respectively?
Condemned 2 Bloodshot.
OP, try getting Mandalore Gaming on YT to cover this. Shoot him an email or something. It looks like something he would play and I dead certain if he covered it, lots of people would be interested.
Finished Outer Wilds yesterday. Its pretty fun before the endgame, but gets a bitty messy by the end. Ash Twin project is way too hidden depsite being one of the first goals you find. In the end I only found it by screwing about with the teleporter pads by accident, despite having all the rest of the info about what it is and what it contains. The ending is beautiful, but god damn is the final "puzzle" bullshit.

What game is that.
Crisis in the Kremlin. If it had a better user interface I would play it.
Pro tip: just beef up the… fuck I forgot the name, but I think its civilian trade good tech with a big budget, and you win the game then and there pretty much.
Shame the creators have shat the bed harded and harded with each subsequent game. Ostalgie was… okay. Mao was like a butchered version of CITK and the last one was a buggy unfinished joke.
By the way, my chalange still stands for a similar game to CITK that I threw at you a cew years ago. Beat Hidden Agenda (the DOS game from the 80's) as a communist, and have an economy that isn't on the edge of collapse. My best result was communist but with a lot of loans that killed internal development programmes.
>>20455>Beat Hidden Agenda (the DOS game from the 80's) as a communist, and have an economy that isn't on the edge of collapse
Is this even possible, Im trying to avoid getting embargoed by the US since that seems to be what really tanks the economy but I dont think its doable while youre going full commie and trying to purge the reactos. My best runs are like yours, where you "win" but the economy is in shambles and can't fund social services anymore
I think one thing that I ended up doing was kowtowing to the IMF advisor. Pretty sure the writters did assume that IMF are nice people, so you don't actually get fucked over if you deal with them a lot, so I think in my best ending I managed to fund some social programs, but the game said in the end that the country was forced to take on more and more loans.
What I am wondering is if its possible to at least have some sort of socdem/liberal good ending. You know, not socialist, but something a liberal would feel good about achieving. Because I am pretty sure you are almost forced to go communist if you don't want to let the militarists do any sort of shit. I dunno, maybe its possible to kowtow to the US while still purging the right wing of the military?
>>20455>Beat Hidden Agenda (the DOS game from the 80's) as a communist, and have an economy that isn't on the edge of collapse. My best result was communist but with a lot of loans that killed internal development programmes.
I've done this. Did you get the ending where you shoot down a CIA spy plane and your militias btfo them
?>>20460>Pretty sure the writters did assume that IMF are nice people, so you don't actually get fucked over if you deal with them a lot
When you finish it shows you your national debt and it's through the fucking roof.
The military spending that it takes to fight off the CIA death squads is almost too much to handle. Getting help from the Soviets and the Cubanos is an absolute must, as is technologically developing your coffee growing co-ops. I have not figured out anything that I can possibly do to salvage the cotton growing industry, though.
Swear Im not a shill but this game dropped and the reviews are glowing. Might want to hold off on buying it unless you really like the concept and have money to burn because a fair amount of folks are saying its more of a tech demo than a game, but still think its super promising. Ill probably pick it up anyhow, Looks pretty epic if you ask me
here are some screenshots taken by the players
>>21270>it's yet another low tech survival/colony building game
I wish the game had soil types, doesn't make sense that a tribe in a ""jungle"" (reality: bunch of bamboo and palms, not dense at all) can manage agriculture just as well as someone in a river valley that's propably fertile as hell. I imagined making the enviroment realistic would have been his first goal.
Agreed, I'm personally bummed about the shallowness (no pun intended) of the water mechanics. I was hoping for dams, canals and irrigation channels yet there isn't even boats or fishing. Water just exists at one level across the whole map, so you can't even dig down far on land. Even minecraft is more sophisticated than that.
The game looks shallow in general and with only one dev, even if it pans out it'll take a while to finish. Hopefully some streamer makes it trend so the dev can hire more people but till then I'll just follow the patch notes
Ye. I wish I could help him work on the project, every time I play I see something that has potential to be a great mechanic.
I mostly play autism games
* ss13 (tg, colonial marines, whatever flavor of the month bullshit someone starts)
* dwarf fortress,
* civ 5 BNW sometimes
also been playing a game called forts a lot lately which is quite fun
given its VNs, you could always run a VM. chaos;head noah seems to have a plat rating on protondb. not sure if anyone releases the proton prefixes but you could pay for it, crack it, and refund if the crack works. or just run the original in a psp emu.
i've managed to fix most of my issues, actually.
some key vns still work weird as fuck so i might get the psp/switch versions, but most of them work, chaos;head noah works fine, so i'll just wait for the patch from the committee of zero and then play it, and fate stay/night works after getting a new version of the game.
also i've found out that some games will refuse to run on my nvidia dgpu, but will run excellently on my intel igpu and amd egpu, so it's also related to my graphics card drivers. switching to the igpu is how i got muv-luv and dynasty warriors 7 running
Persona clone smh -_-
which ones are you playing through now? i'm doing a hard 'cturne playthrough on my switch. the hd remaster is pretty disappointing for its msrp, i expected something better. i bought it on a huge discount so it was worth it, but it's still annoying how they basically didn't bother to improve any aspect of the base game or redo/crop the fmvs in a better way. the only good thing they did was add the ability to choose your fusion skills
what is socialist about brutal legend?
I play Budokai Tenkaichi 2 with spergs and get my shit ran
i did the hardmode cockturns play and couldn't beat satan. final fight felt like a coin flip.
i really think a lot of it is like that, as much as i love the game. the element of enemies and the player being fragile to make level differences matter less than skill, ironically ends up killing you in dungeons and boss fights because of lucky crits and weaknesses you won't know about if you're playing the game blind. the fact that you get a game over if the enemy manages to kill your male-to-fiend doesn't help either
