What is bunkerchan's opinion of Tom Nook from Animal Crossing? I've seen a lot of leftist argue that he deserves the bullet because he's a property owner, but others have said that in the game he gives away more than he could ever turn a profit from. Does this mean he gets a pass? I personally think Isabelle should be given critical support and usurp power from him at some point in time so that she could implement communal type measures after Nook industrializes the island using your labor, but it's almost as if the game is trying to say that Tom Nook is a necessary evil to get to modern communal living. The game doesn't really valorize his actions, either. He's a tanooki, and in Japanese folklore they are seen as tricksters by nature. In this way, he exists more as an anthropomorphized analog for the duplicity of the capitalist. Yet despite this, he also isn't as harsh as a modern capitalist might be. He doesn't tack on interest, have a set-in-stone timeline when you're supposed to pay him back, and won't ever repossess your home if you refuse to pay him. In this way, he represents more of the fantastical benevolent capitalist that Americans idealize. The only conclusion I've been able to come to is that the developers themselves are a bit confused about who Tom Nook really is.

Hello everyone, I am politely requesting some help from you guys to help me troubleshoot my Democracy 3 mod from several years ago. Unfortunately I have basically forgotten how to use the modding tools anymore and do not really know how to fix the problem, so I was looking for some advice. Would any of you be interested in helping me out? https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=268336783 This is the mod BTW, I have people who say it is working and people who say it isn't, so yeah idk. Obviously I will provide more details and so on once I apprise the situation better. Thanks all.

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

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?

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.
