Let's discuss the shitshow that is TLOU2. Is the leaker right? Is the story shit? Personally I have always hated the first one and that the plot twists and turns that people hate so much in the sequel are a direct continuation of the extremely cringe and tryhard storytelling of the first one
6 posts omitted.
>Is the story shit? Is the gameplay any good? Or do we just want our games to be shitty fucking movies now?
>>38 >What would be better would be to not mention Elle and Joel at all, say it is a new character in a sidequel, and then reveal that the character wanting to kill the two of them mid-way of the game. But this would completely omit the thematic parallel between Ellie and the new character looking for revenge. It sounds like you want the game to be more generic than try something not many other games do.
>>40 >thematic parallel between Ellie and the new character looking for revenge. So what? You can make different parallels, hell you can even make one with the side character traveling around the country piecing together what happened and tracking Elle down parallel their journey to the hospital. >be more generic than try something not many other games do. If it means making a more emotional cohesive and impactful story, sure. ND can't make these twists work because they want to make stupid shit like "thematic parallel between Ellie and the new character looking for revenge" rather than tell an emotional story first and then add themes to the general plot arc later.
>>41 You have no idea if it will be emotional or not - emotion comes from the detail and presentation, not a 5 sentence outline of the plot.
>>42 There wont be enough detail and presentation in the second half. > 5 sentence outline of the plot. I watched the scene where Joel got killed. It was cringe

/leftypol/ HOI League Anonymous Gamer 04/29/2020 (Wed) 19:13:25 No. 44 [Reply] [Last]
Hello friends, since we're all bored I wondered if anyone wants to play competitive/team HOI? Ideally with like 6-7 players to hit all the major nations in whatever mod we end up playing, though perhaps more realistically 3-4. Anyone interested?

why the FUCK is Oblivion/Morrowind so FUCKING DIFFICULT? Anonymous Gamer 04/02/2020 (Thu) 01:59:25 No. 78 [Reply] [Last]
Seriously, I made an unarmed khajiit adept in theft and other based shit. I did a bunch of theifs guild shit and did a bunch of fighters guild shit. I can finally kill enemies and I was finally feeling happy. I went to this cave near caldera that had a bunch of Dedra worshipers in it, I guess cause there was some random book of dedra in there. I made it to level 8 and I walk outside and I am immediantly bombsarded by a fucking clif rider and two fucking alits and now I am stuck in this fucking gay ass cave and have no idea what to do now. I tried running and I finally was making it back into a fucking city AND THEN THE FUCKING GAME CRASHED ==WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK MORROWIND? HOW THE FUCK DID ANYONE EVER PLACE THIS GOD DAMN SHIT!? I am fucking pissed beyond all belieF!!! rRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

>>98 It's better than playing the barb for the 999,999,999,999^5 times.
Help me anons, I'm not sure what's best. I joined House Hlaalu because they are anti-slavery. However, they are also allied with the Imperials/Empire who seem very EU-like to me. If not EU, then straight up colonisers. What should be done?
>>100 the Empire is the better choice as compared to rival powers like the Aldmeri - who are straight up genocidal. Really I would have went Redoran because they are also anti-slavery but pro-independence or morrowind and hate the telvani pricks, but massive corruption aside Hlaalu is alright.
>>101 Sounds like Redoran are who I should've gone for. There's not a chance I'd join the Telvanni, they're absolute scum.

I feel like the industry push towards micro transactions and away from fully developed product is a way to hinder piracy online. I just download skyrim and the sims totally for free with no issues, but, I tried to download Starcraft II and It's a fucking mammoth of a task to get it to work properly with out an internet connect. How can we even go about pirating games that require online play or whatever nonsense they are trying to peddle to make virtually free and perfect commodities cost money,? Does anyone else feel this way?

>>342 Source code is not MOP but the end product itself. Means of production is, like, computers, internet, etc etc etc. The internet is actually more the perfect commodity Marx talked about. It's virtually free (in theory) and can do basically whatever we want.
>>343 It depends on the type of source code. Game engines, software libraries, etc. can definitely be a means of production.
>>344 I guess that's true. I am more of a code monkey rather than a developer for video games, but, I still think that ultimantly personal computers are what is and should be classified as a means of production. Ultimately, after out time has come, the distinction will cease to exist, as, all personal computers will remain person computers.
>>345 Think of it this way: Who owns Unreal Engine? The source maybe be out there, but commercial developers cannot make use of it without paying rent to Epic Games.

>>339 >hinder piracy The push to fight piracy is itself driven by the same motive as the stubbornness with which even limited refunds were granted, the abolition of demos, the fight against used games, the industry's tempestuous relationship with streamers/LPs, and the shilling of preorders: If people can try your game, they're less likely to buy trash.

I liked tinkering around with SimLife, but I never really understood the appeal of most Sim "games" to be honest. The goals (and thus the actual "game" structure) were often paper thin.
>>351 SimLife and SimEarth weren't "games" in any meaningful sense. The purpose was to play god and covered the world in flying molluscs or keep spamming natural disasters or whatever. The other games (SimCity, SimAnt, SimFarm, etc) actually put you in the world to some extent, so you had a sort of guidance.

Thread for both warband and the new bannerlord

>>383 Play warband
>>385 tbh vlandia is based around the post rome barbarian led kingdoms who had knights (not the meidival ones just nobles riding horses with some chainmale armor) So i was just fucking with you Althouhg those mask/helmet things they have make no sense
>>371 Empire because fuck nationalism.
So, I started my own kingdom, taking up a comfy corner of the Western Empire, but the nobles keep slipping out of my dungeon like it was made of paper. I was thinking about trying to play it cool and soft and keep some kind of diplomacy open between my Commonwealth Republic and other kingdoms, but I guess THIS IS A REVOLUTION NOW KILL ALL NOBLES OR SELL THEM TO SLAVERY It can't be helped. They just keep popping up with ever larger annoying bands of peasants if they escape or I let them go, which is a slow grind and attrition I can't afford. Sorry. FUCKING DIE!

Is anyone playing Kards? It's a new Hearthstone clone about WW2.
Kards is absolute shit. I played for 2 hours when it was in alpha before it even released on Steam and the monetization model is so fucking greedy it's insane. You had to win like 15 matches or something just to get a single card pack. Gwent is better.

>>392 You can play a rogue/thief like character. Those usually have critical strike still in primary along with dodging w/ short blades. And backstab somewhere in major. Illusion and mysticism might also work well with that build.
>>389 Where can I find daggerfall mods?
I was unaware this game is still as popular as it is.

So, I am at the part of the game where you have to go talk to the royals of wayrest && daggerfall and shit, but, they all hate me cause I am an argonian and I only made Royals hate the shit out of me cause I am a larping communist retard. What do? Who the fuck am I actually supposed to talk to because the kings and queens don't actually give me information. The queen of daggerfall has a quest for me, but, I can't do it yet until I am a higher level. Do I just have to keep doing quests for the nobles? Also, how do I recognize these fuckers?
