>>3222 I'm not a "Soulsborne" fan per se, but I played Dark Souls for the first time just over a year ago and it enthralled me. There are just so many exciting moments in that game - the hellkite dragon, getting chased by a Black Knight, walking into the Undead Parish and getting hit by a beam of light from out of nowhere, fighting gaping Gaping Dragon, crossing Blight Town and then finding out you can just waltz on over to Firelink Shrine, chilling in Dukes Archives etc. The environment designs are really inspired. Playing DS1 brought back those feelings that I used to get playing Ocarina of Time all those years ago. All other 'Souls-like' games seem uninspired in comparison. I unfortunately never got to play BB, but I did play Sekiro for a little bit and that just seems like a shit game to me.
>>3222 I like the gameplay loop. >>4598 >I did play Sekiro for a little bit The game really gets better once you get a handle on the combat.

>multiple 2TB hard drives full of games >never touch them >bought a PS4 back in 2018 and practically every game I would ever be interested in >haven't beat one >have every handheld modded and a PC that can run any emulator with high specs >never play anyway Is it possible to just completely lose interest in video games? I know people who played substantially more than me during their adolescence, yet their appetite for gaming doesn't seem to diminish. I don't think it's burnout because no amount of time away is affecting my interest.

>>4868 lmao no
A lot of video games are just a series of checklists that you fill out, or are empty vacant rooms that you're supposed to interact in. This could be said about a lot of things though, but it is easy to start seeing multiple games of the same type as being too samey. There is also a lot of pressure to like games that you're "supposed" to like in order to be a based lord or whatever even if they aren't terribly appealing to your appetite.
>>4858 This is why I pirate everything. I know that I have a tendency to play games for a couple of days at most and drop them.
>>4876 Games you don't have to like: >open world Have a high tendency to be really boring, especially if they're made by Ubisoft. >le Souls Not everybody likes yet another Demon's Souls clone, even if they are "the only hard games ever made"
that's called growing up

Anyone still plays this? Was feeling nostalgic for some time now and wanted to try it again. How do I get it for free in Current Year?

>>4871 Ah, and I'm referring to the trial, of course. You won't need a torrent or some shady site if you just want to play single player for free. A torrent won't give you a working Realms ID, either, I believe. Better download it from the official site. https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/free-trial If you get stuck, come back to this thread and I will walk you through it. Simply using a third party launcher might work, too.
>>4872 So I can do everything free on single player version by removing the -demo? modding also okay?
>>4871 >>4872 Thanks, I found a way to play it using MCLeaks. Maybe it's a bit shady but it works for now.

Have you guys ever played these two masterpieces? Literally no modern historical city building game can compete with these two, they are the most polished, well designed games I've ever seen. Caesar III which was already great, was succeeded by the much superior Pharaoh, which expanded on what Caesar had already done right, and made it even better, and was so succesful that even had an "DLC" with many more levels. Also, you guys can use this thread to share your custom maps aswell

I never much played Pharaoh and Zeus seems a bit clunky. I did really enjoy the chinkie one, that campaign was solid.
>>485 You can get them on GOG for pretty cheap. I bought them for my Aunt who was obsessed with them. I could never figure these games out but she build mega cities that could run by themselves.

WHITE-KNUCKLE THRILLS Comrade 09/30/2020 (Wed) 21:09:46 No. 4821 [Reply] [Last]
This board has become boring as fuck due to all the goddamn LARPers who won't talk about anything unless they can role-play as leftists in it. To rectify this situation, let's talk about some of our favorite white-knuckle thrills. Are you a hardcore action gamer, anon?
this board's traffic is just too low, it's like trying to have game discussion through gas station bathroom scrawls.

>>2520 Wrong. The Kremlingames devs are die-hard pro-USSR.
Who made this game? Westernoids, thus it follows those kinds of brainlet models.
>>2522 I thought they were Russiana hence the bad translations
>>2522 >>2807 The devs are Russian. Also in this game it is harder to win if you do Perestrokia and easier to win if you go full Stalinism which does not seem like the model a Westernoid would make.
>>2833 Go full stalinist, pick leaderism, leader makes laws, generalissimo... ...And then switch to laws by referendum, direct democracy and all the most democratic options.

Man 5e has got to be, and will probably make the tabletop games a much shittier experience than before. There is nothing good about the design in that shitshow of a game and people will take inspiration from that game and probably infect /v/ shit with it too when Baldur's Gate 3 comes out.
>>4035 There are some good ideas like inspiration or advantage/disadvantage but they're copied from other things and not used very well.
Wierd RPG featuring Cherno Alpha if anyone is interested https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Roleplay/ChernoAlphaVsTheWorld
The Polish company D-Day Miniature Studio, which makes toy figures of military personnel, has released a new series called "Red Storm over Europe. Soviet Rear Troops 1944-1946". https://preview.redd.it/46lp8sxf7kp51.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a6791990b95101f750175fc2f26013523b6565aa The series includes four figures of Soviet army soldiers. Polish sculptor Pawel Krasicki depicted them as looters. https://preview.redd.it/1px9f4nv7kp51.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7863fc610c99903554929c57764aa88762a10770 These miniatures reflect the main idea of modern Poland and the West that the Soviet army didn't liberate the country from the Nazis, but simply plundered it. Meanwhile, if it weren't for the Soviet Union, there wouldn't be any Poland now.

What faction would a principled Marxist side with in Fallout: New Vegas? Anonymous 05/23/2020 (Sat) 15:57:16 No. 776 [Reply] [Last]
I though about starting this thread in /hobby/, but considering I'm not interested in talking about the merits of the game-itself, and rather to discuss the specific dilemma of factions, I thought I'd get a more focused discussion here. The Wildcard ending notwithstanding, there are principally three different factions in the game you can side with: Caesar's Legion, New California Republic, and Mr. House. To begin, Caesar's Legion is a fascist power lead by a historical materialist (even though the writers somewhat misrepresent Hegel in their dialogue about the dialectic, the general theme is maintained) most players misunderstand Caesar as just a LARPer rather than someone who is genuinely trying to restart history. His Legion, is admittedly a hegemonic autocracy that Caesar intends to use to subjugate humanity under one banner, so that their collective progress would be accelerated. It's entirely possible to interpret Caesar as just history's janitor trying to send humanity back through the motions and antiquity to try and reach a better result than rushing back to the "good ol' days" like the NCR, rather than someone who takes pleasure in creating a slave society that is an objectively malignant entity. The NCR is presented as the return of the old Bourgeois Dictatorship of the US, their government is a corrupt expansionist bureaucracy that can only adequately administrate war, meanwhile the actual body of the legislation itself has a lineage of benevolent autocrats (tandy) and is ruled by the interest of the "brahmin barons" (kulaks), this is a critique that Caesar presents in his analysis of the NCR (which happens to sound out-of-context Marxian). Caesar correctly identifies the NCR as a reincarnation of the failed Bourgeois state that brought about the very predicament of the wasteland, and seeks to use them as his component in creating a society apt enough to the material conditions of the wasteland. The strangest character in this dynamic is Mr. House, if the NCR is a light veil for a Bourg dictatorship, then Mr. House is an open window, making no illusions to the player about his proposed autocratic status and ex-Bourg origin. Since the wasteland cannot be considered Capitalist (as a true economic analysis of the Fallout universe would lack too many necessary factors to be accurate) we have to assume that the wastes can be best surmised as a scavenger-economy wherein the most valuable resource is electricity and armaments, the wasteland does still have capitalistic elements (the barons of the NCR being a good example, as well as Crimson Caravan and Gunrunners) but lacks the infrastructure to maintain a conventionally capitalist society (and thereby is also incapable of creating a socialist society unless material conditions change). I'd propose that due to this, the best choice for a Marxist in the wasteland is to side with whichever faction has the best capacity to create industry in the wasteland. All the factions in the maingame (and characters in the DLC hint at this theme, but would take to long to discuss) are representations of differing ideological states: the NCR being a bourgeois dictatorship under the farce of democracy, the Legion being a fascist army with the goals (at least the goals of Caesar) of restarting humanity's cultural progress, and Mr. House who breaks the mold as an autocratic Technocrat. You might refer to House as the supreme corporatist, but he's likely the only one possessing of the ability to either industrialize the wasteland or to simply leave Earth behind for Mars, despite being the most comically capitalist entity in Fallout (a series that from inception was an inherent critique of Nationalist Capitalism), House is likely the best choice for a principled Marxist, the NCR would lead humanity into a similar state of global capitalism, it too perhaps has the capacity to industrialize the wastes like Mr. House (and in face House intends to use them largely for a similar purpose) but Mr. House presents perhaps and easier path, because House is a planned economist, regardless of all the old-world business aesthetic, House is someone who would be a literal computer-god who plans the economy. House claims to be an objective ruler with a more important grand vision than say the short-term emulators of the NCR, who despite their uses to him, House rejects as the planners of the economy (potentially because he recognizes like Caesar, their inherent contradictions). In any event of House winning, the inevitable desire of the Marxist Courier would be to have him killed or deposed, I left out Yesman in this little essay because I thought that would be to filled with assumptions to really consider, because of course the obvious answer would be "courier and yes man takes over and the Comrade Courier uses Yesman to create an epic planned economy, Communism 100." A ending which to me seems really silly to rationalize in the context of the setting, to be clear, I don't think F:NV has any Marxist faction or even a Marxian theme, it's themes are focused around nostalgic ideology and the Gnostic need to either destroy the past or worship it. To the end of advancing the Fallout Universe to the next stage of history, I think Mr. House is the only one who even has the capacity to achieve it, even if he's a terrifying computer God who could only be removed by his "employees" in the most idealized scenario. As Benny puts it: "Mr House hides Vegas under his skirt when the bombs drop so it's his? forever?" not that Benny is a proletarian revolutionary or anything, but a Mr. House ending would require that House be willing to take on proteges or somehow put himself in a position to be removed, but since that's a question more of game mechanics than narrative, I'll ignore it. Am I wrong? Who do you think a Marxist should choose?
