So in case you didn't hear about some of the stuff people have found digging through the files of Alyx but Half-Life 3 literally died for this game as in the assets for the cancelled Half-Life 3 game are still in Source 2's coding and even the weapons for the game are still packaged in the model files. Also it turns out Alyx is just a reworked Half-Life short story as people found the normal non-VR files for the game and it was just a tech demo that was 40 minutes long, the VR stuff was just slapped on and it was turned into a full game. TL;DR: Alyx is just the greedy cash grab on the Half-Life name we all knew it was and the proof was literally in the pudding.

Why are there 2 half-life threads?
>>731 He was fired because his hl3 was awful
>>4505 It could have been good, its impossible to tell based on synopses like that. If you were to reduce HL2 to its base synopses and tell people about straight after HL1 they would almost certainly say the same thing.
>>4541 Half-Life 2 was garbage along with its shitty "episodes" and a sequel to all that couldn't have been anything other than garbage.

>Queen Victoria is a tyrannical monster, literally cannibalizing her servants and consuming highly illegal and body altering drugs Bonus Lyndon LaRouche points just for that
>Warhammer 40k type work-worlds staffed by wageslaves living in worse than slave-like conditions, exploited by their Dickensian overseers
>Communist, Anarchist and Esoteric-Anarchist revolutionaries portrayed mostly favorably, or at least more empathetically than other sides
>Reform is not enough and thus fails, only way away from the current situation is through drastic change to the current material conditions of the setting

Is this literally the most based game apart from really specialist kind ones like Kremlin Games in the last few years?

How does this compare to something like Disco Elysium or SubNautica?
>>3412 Its an Alexis Kennedy game so the bafflingly frustrating gameplay is intentional and you can find blogposts about how he deliberately made the gameplay irritating on purpose for narrative reasons which I feel missed the mark in this one (although I maintain the very slow pace of Sunless Sea was a major asset to the game that Skies lost). I get that he wanted to make it feel like you're a cultist in Lovecraftian fiction trying to piece together forbidden lore to figure out how to commune with your chosen god but for the most part it makes you start playing large chunks of the game on autopilot and losing the atmosphere while driving many people to just looking up how to achieve things. I have enjoyed the large amount of time I have spent with it but the signature AK frustration doesn't help this one. >I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever All of the principles are really useful, edge, winter and knock are probably the 3 most useful because they are all key components in late game summons including the incredibly useful Maid In the Mirror which can solo most of the expeditions in the game and is required for one of the apostle ascensions.
>>4166 Similar to Disco Elysium in that they are effectively books with RPG mechanics. Different to it in that its also a weirdly punishing roguelike with grind.
>>1510 >Sunless Skies heh, more like Punless Pies!
>>4644 ...absolutely awful

Wait which one? I don't remember any WW2 CoD that let you do that beyond standard multiplayer factions. The only one that actually included the Japs was WaW which had the reverse in the campaign.
>>1497 >they're not the usual enemies In VC:Stories you are a soldier who goes against his corrupt superior. Though in this case it is depicted as a "bad apple" and not as a systemic problem as it is irl.
>>1504 Holy shit, I thought that only applied to movies. Though in hindsight with how prominent video games have become, I guess it was obvious.
>>2086 I wish that game had been better cause some of the pre-release stuff is great, I love cheesy corporate monologuey stuff like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6JynhUTIpY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04i_k_DaUOQ why are there so many random whooshes and bleeps and sound effects in that first trailer? who cares, it's great!

The new cutscenes narrations suck such as that of Attila's campaigns. Heard there might be a mod for it but still seems senseless that the vibe of the original narrations were just butchered that way for whatever reason.
>>4796 The narration in William Wallace campaign got shafted as well.

Hi, Does anyone else here play LCS? I am working on updating it and would appreciate it if i could throw ideas around here, take suggestions and ask people to test out some of my changes? Original game can be found Here: http://lcs.wikidot.com/ and https://github.com/Kamal-Sadek/Liberal-Crime-Squad Please report me any bugs here, too as there are currently no other active developers. Would be great if other people wanted to be involved, too.

Is the character gen here better and more up date than the original? Where it shows what options give is just for my debug mode.
New features added: >Base Field Hospital: kind of acts the same way as the clinic does but in the future you will a chance arrested if you go to the clinic after committing a crime. -Option to sneak out of a siege. This is difficult and depends on the stats of highest and lowest member of squad. -If not in siege, popular and been active 1+ year pretty decent members will come and ask to join your squad. >Sleepers more things to do in there undercover day jobs. This needs to be expanded even more but i started with a couple. >chargen revamped original 10 chargen questions but added one more; the 'my experience with reaction' one in pic. Needs to overhaul this to add more and lower base stats at birth.
I haven't played it in years but it's fucking based. Glad to hear you're working on it. >>5020 Your spelling and stuff is a bit questionable, also I kinda liked the 'mischievous' tone of the original game's writing, it's hard to think how to change the game to be more unironically pro-left though without losing the charm.

>>5024 >>5024 Cheers anon. i just quickly threw in the texts so i had something to test with the actual code i wrote. i figured i'd edit and check it all after this portion is done fully. I have been thinking a lot about this too, not only how it should retain it's humour but actually how it should add more. Do you have any ideas? In this version im basingg of off the president is in there (you can go to the whitehouse,) So i thought there might be some comody to be had there. And i was thinking of updating the random things like pickup lines, interogation lines, wisdom lines, etc. If you have any ideas. :)
Play LCS, faggots. :(

>>4977 >>4979 Caves of Qud is cool but I've always been a C:DDA man There is also that weird Japanese roguelike, Elona++. I remember playing that and there was a scroll of featherweight which stacked to the point where you could make items weightless, and eventually I got so many of them and stacked them up to the extent that I managed to make a queen sized bed, a nightstand with a candle, and a bookcase completely weightless and take it with me on my journeys so I had a little portable bedroom with me at all times >>5004 Yeah I tended to play Esper-cowboys before now but Chimeras seem pretty fun now
also one of my favorite items I have found in Caves of Qud is a revolver with a 7 shot chamber >"The craftsmanship of this pistol worked in chrome and brass is breathtaking -- grips of kingswood wrap your palm around themselves, the hammer is contoured to your thumb with infinitesimal precision, the eye of the barrel leers at your target. Twines of withered ivy are engraved along its frame and down its barrel stained with age and blood." <The seven lords of House Isner feasted on boar gut and swilled wine from gilded cups in the ivy-strewn halls of their hold. They spared no concern for temperance, for the coffers of their house had swelled gardeners' gold amassed through the sale of water drawn from the lords' wells. But as the gluttonous barons counted seven amongst their clan, so had become numbered their days of debauchery when the son of a beggared gardener swore a vengeful oath in the name of his father against the house of Isner. <The penniless boy beseeched a gunsmith of great repute to craft for him a pistol of the most exquisite artistry with which he could be sure to vanquish the seven lords, and in return the boy promised the smith all the spoils of the battle. The smith, who in the hazel eyes of the boy beheld the spirit of vengeance, agreed. <And so the boy, armed with the masterwork pistol, cast open the doors of the Hall of Isner with a fury that shook their iron hinges and seized upon the supping lords. Before any of them had yet to set down their gilded cups, the boy unholstered the pistol and shot dead six of the sons of Isner. The last lord rejoised at his fortune and reached for his hip from where he would sling a pistol of his own at the spent boy. But as his crooked finger freed his holster's strap, the boy shot the lord as the smith had crafted for the boy a pistol with seven chambers and seven slugs. Such it was that on this day the house of Isner fell.
>>5025 Caves of Qud is cool but I've always been a C:DDA man CDDA is VERY easy to mod, anon. Why dont you create a leftist or other interesting set of NPCs? I will even help if someone wants to project to add new things to C;DDA, i have done a lot of editing in json on the game and know the code-base a little.
>>4977 >CoQ discord is filled with radlibs it's fucking horrifyingly awful. It's a shame too, because roguelike communities tend to be extremely chill, but CoQ has a dogshit community.
>>5082 C:DDA discord got so bad full of entitled little retard burgers we had to make a new one and keep it on topic. it was terrible and made me realize how bad discord was.

Fantastic game, if you are a burger get it because I really think it could be banned for being Chinese, and don't spend a cent because gacha is bad for you. I might buy the season pass to support the devs but even that has massive issues (not gambling, it's just broken currently). Anyway, it's not just Breath of the wild. It's a lot like BoTW in the overworld, but once you get further along you learn to make big wombo combos by switching out your waifus a lot. The elemental system is the key to the game. Now my reviews is a little diffrent from many because I got insanely lucky on my free pulls and got really good characters: Venti, Fischl, AND Xiangling. Also I am lesbian for Lisa, she is a very deep and complex character with huge plots.
>>5062 > Fischl, AND Xiangling Got lucky with those two too. But Xiangling is on a promotion right now; think if you get to like abyss level three you get her
>>5063 Yeah it's true, but I got lucky I think. Are you a more experienced player? I'm not very far into the story. Is the battle pass worth it? How bad is the resin issue?
>>5064 I'm adventure level 28 going on 29 now. Progression slows a lot; I'd been binging the game pretty hard since I'm NEET right now, but I had to slow because I can't go faster without paying at this point. I will not pay a dime; I will not buy the pass, so I can't attest to it being worthwhile; it's ultimately your choice, but I wouldn't advise it because it doesn't seem wholly necessary unless you really wanna power through the game. Anyhow, I take issue with the whole resin thing, but ultimately the fact that the amount of stuff I can do on any given day is limited has promoted a healthier lifestyle for me. I can't just keep binging the game straight through to the cruel and bitter end because it prevents me from doing so, so I just hop on and do my commissions and the domains if they got what I need and leave it at that; it's fun enough that way.
>>5066 Hm guess I'll save my financial support for when they put out cosmetics. I don't want to power through the game, I want to just enjoy the slow burn.

>>703 >women and minorities only exist in real life if they are relevant to the plot
>>204 >What the hell was gamer gate? Long story short, it was a movement that became too big for 4chan itself(which M00t noted that he did not want movements on his site and noted Chanology was a mistake) and was relegated to 8ch and the rest of the internet. This was in protest and ethics of games Journalism. Journalists are usually slimeballs no matter what and are usually bought and paid for. But what made this special was the fact it became a rabbit hole of secrecy and organizations and various other things that kind of spawned a civil war on the internet. E-Celebs, Social Media accounts and various accounts where either for Gamergate or for censorship and various other practices. You had news media like Polygon, Vice, and various other articles being written that Gamers were sexist and video games are dead etc. This prompted a reaction from normalfags to join in as well to try and fight off these organizations. It ended up falling over time due to the purity spirals but i learned a lot. There are still news outlets like Nichegamer and even other places that have been reporting and fighting the good fight on the internet. >Did any of y'all participate in it? I was at the mid point about 2015-2016 when it was hot and 8ch was indeed on fire. But due to schizophrenic paranoia and constant talks about politics and censorship and banning users who were criticizing the fact /v/ should be about games or some of the censorship was off and they were basing things without really researching at times, it kind of slowly collapsed. I left after that. There was classical liberals, communists, and yes even conservative right wing types as well. >Was it a good thing or bad thing? I would say it was good because i noticed as Gamergate wore on i began to notice the downward trend of pandering instead of making a good game, and also the fact of why things from Japan were being censored or altered when it did not need to be. Where it was the "Localizers" from the company that is pretending to translate the games that are coming here. In Burgerland it's just a lot more prevalent and adding things that do not make sense, or making alteration censorship for those who are adults and can make their own decisions. It's sad that for a country that call's itself the "free world" or even the "Greatest country on earth" it has devolved into censorship and alterations by the American versions of the Japanese companies or even organized shaming campaigns by gated community dwellers with too much time on their hands. I can only hope this begins to end eventually as i would like to just enjoy video games without having to hear something was altered, changed or had a day 1 stealth patch applied like Fairy Tail(when Koei Tecmo said there would not be any censorship and was censored on all platforms for panty shots). It's odd that i would be considered right wing or facist but i would put myself as classically left or Libertarian nowadays.
