Does this actually mean anything? A lot of my friends on anarchy servers have been freaking out because of this, personally I think it to do with not being able to use alt websites. https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/article/java-edition-moving-house

>>5868 in a lot of ways Elijah is a less retarded version of Mr. House, a man who is unrivaled in his brilliance and in a position of power to use that brilliance to help people, and he chooses to do so. Unlike House though, who just wants to recreate a turbo-autistic capitalist dictator state, he wants to create a fairly utopian society where people's needs are met so long as they follow the code of the BoS, namely they cannot own any advanced technology like laser weapons or power armor and beyond that allow people to basically govern themselves. He wants to actively advance technology again rather than merely just study it, he wants to renew the infrastructure of the old world and use it to incentivize compliance with the BoS rather than use outright force to force people into compliance, ect. But at the same time he leads basically a military autocracy with hereditary elements - a friendly autocracy which means the best, yeah, but beyond what is afforded to them by the BoS there is very little in the way of individual freedom, and the BoS is still too insular to accept prospecting outsiders into their ranks if they show an aptitude for understanding pre-war tech or what have you. Still though, it would make me pause rather than say independent vegas is better as you do in the base game. I might unironically support the Elijah dictatorship under the conditions of a BoS victory at Helios One, as long as Veronica was still around for the prospect of reforming the BoS in the near-future.

The game is about "you" a newly elected democratic president with a mayority in both houses getting all those sweets reforms passed, mantaining a deficit and fighting against climate change and for workers rights. It's about going Allende but withouth a Pinochet (or an american embassy) around. I think it's pretty good. But it sugarcoats the level of reaction a socialist goverment would get.

PC Videogames were only good between 1993 and 2000 Comrade 10/24/2020 (Sat) 13:32:30 No. 5860 [Reply] [Last]
This is not a discussion thread this is a declaration. What I am about to say is NOT up for debate and you CANNOT possibly dispute anything written here. Remember how early cars could only be operated by literal mechanics because they were so unintuitive and shit? Games pre-1993 were exactly like that. Games had no plot and shite gameplay which does not hold up at all these days, nevermind the unbearably primitive graphics. Gaming was the nichest of hobbies and considering the fact that PCs used to cost like 15'000 dollary doos in todays money, it was never going to become mainstream. Then in 1993 K̶n̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶c̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ saw the release of Doom and Ultima VII: The Black Gate (whose expansion Ultima VII Part 2: Serpent Isle would surpass the base game), the mother and father of modern gaming. Doom as every brainless chimp knows invented the modern FPS and by extension TPS genres, the two most lucrative and popular gaming genres and showed how fucking rad vidya gaems could be. It was mainstream, caused just the right amount of moral panic and sold millions. Doom would then be surpassed by Doom 2 and finally by Blood, the best non-3d shooter period. Ultima VII was the first genuinely good and playable Ultima game that still holds up. While the plot is hot trash, it proved the viability of the open world. Serpent Isle would then go on to prove that games could tell an engaging story. Together, they laid the foundation for every modern RPG including the Baldur's Gate series which has yet to be surpassed in excellence. Not only did the 90s see the most influential games of all time, they were also the best. Why? Because during this time, the industry had struck the perfect balance between technological capability and commercialisation. Games before did not have the tech to be good and games after were ruined by capitalism. Ideas could flourish and were unburdened by investor interests, at least not to the degree of today. All of this culminated in 2000 the undisputed best year in gaming. BG 2 is the best crpg of all time (Planescape Torment has the best story but is lacking as a gaming experience). Red Alert 2 is the best RTS of all time. Diablo 2 is the best action rpg of all time. Deus Ex is the best PC game period according to some. These days, no risks are taken. Games like Myst, Myth 1 or 2 or even Planescape could never be made today. Games are so fucking expensive to make and in order to make back their money, devs are forced to pander to the most common denominator. Gamers are Nazis, who cry and whine about idpol anytime a woman is on screen. Nerds back then were progressive and you never heard anything close to the gamergate bullshit of today. Graphics move more copies than concepts and plots are dumbed down so that every shitlib can understand them. Indiegames provide some refuge from the modern hell that is 21. century gaming but even things considered these days to be masterpieces like Undertale, Cave Story or Disco Elysium pale in comparison to the golden age. Im not gonna proof read any of this lmao

Aren't the Stormcloaks like Skyrim's Alt-Right and White Nationalists? Comrade 10/25/2020 (Sun) 04:58:47 No. 5876 [Reply] [Last]
The 'imperials versus stormcloaks' situation in general. What would you think of it? Did the story writers anticipate the rise of 'the alt-right' irl in a way? The Thalmor might be the Neoliberal billionaires and their supporters or the Bilderberg meeting's members. Best comparison I can think of.
To add, another difference is there's no 'ban on Talos worship' scenario although they have conspiracy theorists that genuinely believe that.
Nationalism wasn't born in 2016.
>>5876 Stormcloaks are a religious, isolationist kingdom that wants to shirk their obligations to the empire mostly just because it is going through a rough patch The Empire is a pluralistic and multicultural empire which is basically what the Roman Empire would be if it lived up to its best values, but because of their weak response to the Oblivion Crisis + the rise of the Thalmor, they have been heavily reduced in territory to Cyrodil, Skyrim (for now), and High Rock, with an informal alliance with Hammerfell. The Thalmor are an outright genocidal supremacist religious extremist group. The Aldmeria religion quite literally says that the high elves are basically descendants of the gods trapped to live in the material realm because of the trickery of Lorkhan, and that humans are by extension basically demons who came out of Lorkhans trickery. As such they basically see humans as less than people and totally disposable, and the only reason they aren't doing mass-genocide of humans is because the Empire has still somewhat stopped them. In the meantime though they've taken to genociding their "fellow" elven brothers in the Wood Elves because they think they have deviated from the divine form by... mutating over the several thousand years they have lived on their continent. Oh, did we mention that Ulfric was in the pockets of the Thalmor, and thus is probably literally a plant and the whole civil war organized to weaken the empire for the upcoming round 2? tl;dr, the Thalmor are evil, the Stormcloaks are retarded, the Empire is imperfect but the best choice in the situation.
>>5882 All of this is correct, but there is another dimension to it than that. The truly cursed element is that the Thalmor are kind of right. Not necessarily that the 'correct' thing to do is to genocide to return to oneness, but rather that their plan at the very least would actually work. Because the mythology and religion of people in the Elder Scrolls world isn't a bunch of fake bullshit, it's very real in the context of their world, and magic and CHIM are constantly happening. Meaning that mer were elements of a timeless, spaceless everything-'god'-being (Godhead?) before Lorkhan tricked the Aedra to make the world (among other things); also I forget where men come from in the lore, I think they're also originally from the same place and were mer but got corrupted somehow, not sure though. Thalmor are still going with the most insane and evil possible solution to something that isn't necessarily a problem though, as existing materially rather than ethereally is something they've chosen to perceive as a problem that needs solved. And Stormcloaks is definitely the Thalmor ISIS: funded solely to sow discontent and weakness in the region regardless of who wins in the end.

>>4468 Ok, I have tried it out now. Haven't yet properly sunk teeth in, but have a good look. It looks really solid. My complaint about lifestyles wasn't waranted, they work fine and you can switch between most of them, though I do worry that this might create "meta builds". Also I was mistaken, there are practically no EU4-ification. Schemes at worst can resemble the dice roll sieges, but that was basically the same in CK2, except now there is a UI element to show this. Otherwise the game seems like CK2+, just a general all-round upgrade along with new stuff. But there is one niggle. The UI feels bad. Maybe I was too used to CK2, but the new one feels bad. It's too spread out: character, dynasties, religion and culture in one bottom corner, currencies in the opposite top corner and all the rest important panels down from there. I guess I'll just have to learn to use the hotkeys, but why the hell couldn't it just be all together in the bottom with the character, or the same as in CK2 - at the top, like in every single other PDX game.

>>4538 Another shitty UI problem - army counter doesn't at all correspond to where the army actually is, so it results in me clicking the wrong provinces thinking that the army is in the one where the bar is. Also they decided to move the different holdings out of a single abstract bar representing the province and instead onto the map itself, which is extremely shitty to use, clutters the map and only adds aesthetic value. Picrel explains better I think. The game is great, but the UI is total dogshit.

So starting as some duke in France in 867 I got the highest score on a crusade in 955 and someone from my house that I randomly picked as benefactor got rewarded the Kingdom of Jerusalem. The game then asked me if I want to play as him instead and I said yes. Had the decision of converting to local culture and Muslim and I did. Swore fealty to the Abbasid Caliphate afterwards, won several crusades against troops led by people from my own dynasty but Catholic, and later claimed the throne of Abbasid in 1098. After that I put the game on observer mode and went to sleep and woke up to world being in 1723.

>>4716 >Only one I'm kind off sad about Wolfenstein is the only one of those franchises that's irrevocably tanked as of late, and needs another reboot. >Its going to shit it self soon in a crash resembling the Atarii collapse Crashfags are delusional. Vidya industry is bigger than ever, having outgrown every single form of old media (movies, music, books, etc.) other than TV, and has continued setting growth records every year, in particular being one of the few major winners during lockdown this year. Even the mythology of "The Great Crash" is basically just Atari/Nintendo propaganda, both PC and arcade were totally unscathed through 1983. There has never been a crash. The only vaguely plausible cорe I've heard from crashfags on /v/ is a theory that the over a hundred of billion dollars a year from tens of millions of "core" gaymurz and a billion casuals, comes entirely from a small number of mega hits like Fortnight and LOL, as opposed to a larger number of smaller blockbusters in other media, and that the population of "high attach rate" gaymurz stagnated back in the '00s. I haven't found enough stats to completely debunk it, but a quick sanity check of blockbuster vidya revenue contrasted with total industry take indicates it's unlikely. >>4750 Speaking as a Macfag, M$ singlehandedly killed everything good about Bungie, Halo, and the FPS genre itself by the time it shipped on XBox, see the Halo thread: >>3387 >>4764 >halo
