We have a HoI4 thread but why not just have a Grand Strategy general thread? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people here who play the other grand stratgy games/think hoi4 is too dumbed down shit. Plus /gsg/ on 4chan is infected with /pol/yps and I really want an alternative place to discuss the games. So what's everyone been playing? Here's the results of my recent Serbia to Yugoslavia campaign.

>>6706 The entire thing is just so much of a desperate attempt to control the fanbase opinions: >Hall is the second worst presidential choice because you will have to ruin the US to get him in <But we can totally turn the US around with socialist policies >No he’s a tankie! <Supporting the USSR is actually good in this timeline though? >No, he will shut down the FBI and CIA. Not the heckling based CIA! We need uncle Hoover to rule like a corrupt shadow government to fight the Germans and Japanese! <The CIA and FBI are shit even in OTL. Killing them is good. >Hall is a homophobe!!!
>>6727 Funny thing is that Panzer apparently wanted to make Hall WORSE than Yockey, and the rest of the devs not being comfortable with going along with that was one of the key reasons he retired. Of course, I'm surprised that the same dev team who approved "make Heydrich into a tragic villain" drew the line at "make Hall worse than an actual nazi", but it's something I guess
I'd like to make mods for Paradox games solely to counter the usual liberal/conservative biases you usually see in them
>>6727 >>6728 these are the people who call us ideologues
>>6728 >make Heydrich into a tragic villain This makes no sence, the purpose of burgsys is that its so horrible that its horrifying in a way that makes the hair on your head stand up, I understand them having some German leaders that aren't bad for balance reasons, but making Heydrich good destroys the meaning of this mod.

are video games art? Comrade 07/27/2020 (Mon) 20:18:23 No. 3293 [Reply] [Last]

The video game in itself isn’t art it’s a game.
>>3293 Video games can integrate artistic elements via their background art&music, scenery and so on. But I wouldn't say the game itself is art, since it's about the gameplay and heavily commodified. I'd like some gsmes you or someone think are an exceptiom to this
>>6715 >This Best response yet. >>6671 I'm not sure you're responding to the right post because I'm not seeing any mention of a book outside of a generic chan phrase of "read a book [faggot]" which given the context would imply; read socialist theory (Das Kapital) and/or historical accounts of working conditions and culture in X or Y era. >he talks about mining as if that could be separated from modern industry Mining and actually all sorts of industrial labour was done differently in the past (prospectors often worked small independent mines, rather than large consolidated ones) and there is no idealism, he's not saying it was all good and grand, he's saying that as capitalist infrastructure developed culture ebbed, as people had less and less time and more and more urbanized issues. See link related about why most people have less free time today than peasants of the Medieval era. Why People Don't Read Anymore: https://archive.is/w1f30 >>>/edu/5591
>>6715 gameplay is like any song, movie, or book in that it can be used to build tension through consonance and dissonance. the only thing that separates it from those other art forms is that the consumer is forced to take part in it and make it happen rather than watch it from the sidelines. if anything, that’s better than art. I don’t think the reason games are “too consumerist” is because they exist in a very specific time and place in capitalist culture where half of the first world is made up of couch potatoes that barely have energy to even think. it’s a trashy art form, but like all trashy art forms if you take a closer look you can find gems that understand that games can be used to add an extra dimension of tone to any piece, like the Japan Studio collection for example.

Thanks to BF2Hub I've been playing battlefield 2 recently, it still holds up amazingly and it still has an active player base.
>>6716 Honestly mildly surprised and pleased. I wonder how well it runs in Wine these days.

After a week of pain, suffering, and unending hell. I finally know how to swap items in the inventory. Hideous destructor needs to revamp it's documentation. There are many subtle and tiny stuff left out, despite it being crucial to the mod. I haven't played anything but hd for the last week. I can surely say I no longer know how DOOM even was supposed to be played. The Archvile that was supposed to be a pain in the ass is now an unstoppable god. The Archevile will force you to have a chainsaw or waste ammo, so you can gib bodies. Projectiles are not a joke anymore. Face two barons and you're done for without cover. While speaking about cover. You can't hide for long against a cyber demon. Walls, boxes, anything you can cover behind can be destroyed by the cyber demon.
This is hilarious. So if you haven't played Hideous Destructor yet, here's another reason why you should. Door Busting. DOOM was made decades ago destructible environment wasn't a thing back then, but with hd you can bust about every door in the map. I was playing hd with Dimension of the Boomed a quake-1 style map. DotB is gorgeous. I love its style, but I noticed how it forces to solve puzzles and fight more enemies so you can open a path. I was okay with this until I reached map04. This map is just a giant puzzle. It requires you to look for 8 switches all over the map in order to finish the map. I already had a rocket launcher with some heat missiles and decided to bust the door and finish the map in less than a minute. Completely skipping the whole map like it's not even there. Isn't this how DOOM guy supposed to be? and they said hd is the opposite of DOOM.

Fallout 4 Minutemen Dilemma 11/13/2020 (Fri) 03:12:29 No. 6323 [Reply] [Last]
I'm currently replaying Fallout 4 in survival difficulty with a fuckton of mods and I got to say it's pretty fun, I also learnt to enjoy more what stories are told by the environment even if the actual writing is still awful. But recently I discovered this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minutemen_(anti-Communist_organization) So what the fuck is up here, we are meant be the leader of the minutemen (out of nowhere) in a game clearly made up of 50' and 60' references, there's no way the creators did not know about this (or is there? I mean the plot is retarded). Does Preston even know he's black?? Anyway I was building homes and infrastructures for the working men and women of the commonwealth but now I don't know what to think. Am I the bad guy? There's not even an anarchist faction similar to the followers of the apocalypse I could go with in this game. Should I just become a raider and wait for Caesar to rebuild the productive forces?

I guess this is the fallout general now I am playing a heavily modded version of Fallout:DUST after a fun playthrough of the successor prequel mod on Fallout 4 (confusing, I know) in Fallout:FROST. Doing an NCR deserter, and he has gone from a (fairly) badass looking trooper to having his own custom (and slightly defaced) ranger armor.
>>6332 Tbh given everything we see of the minutemen there’s a near 100% chance that the intent was for the MM to be LARPers of the original Minutemen of the Revolutionary War. The first place we meet them is literally a broken down memorial to the war...
>>6491 well there would not really be a revolutionary war to fight, unless they would want to rewrite the institute from what they did in Fallout 3 or rewrite the BoS to be psuedo-Redcoats (which would both be retarded, and early concept art shows a lot of the BoS and Minutememes fighting together, so it would have probably been the institute if anything). I think the Minutemen as a title was more just a way to reinforce how the remains of the US still has enough ideological sway to influence how the post-war people feel about themselves and identify by, in the same way the New California Republic is. In fact really the only factions to ever really form a unique identity largely divergent from the ideas of America are the Followers of the Apocalypse and the BoS (and also Caesar's Legion but they copied Rome so it doesn't count).
(1.16 MB 1177x611 indeed.png)
>>6487 Not the comrade you're replying to but the based realpolitik chaos ending is helping the NCR at first. Seeing how the NCR deals with dissidents. The counterattack on the prison, the treatment of westside, war crimes against the Khans etc and then honoring the truce with the Legion once you hit the strip. Go see what Caesar has to say, fix their howitzer and leave once you upgrade the robots. He'll ask you to kill House. Humor him and leave to grab Boone. Come back to the fort, go in guns blazing a kill Caesar. Go back to the Strip and kill House anyways to lowkey install Yes Man. Help the NCR after to an extent. Peacefully resolve tensions in Freeside. We don't need more good proles dead over diplomatic bullshit. Lie to Moore and get the Omertas the best chlorine caps can buy. Get them to resume business with Mick to get illegal weapons flowing into the Strip. When the time comes they'll fuck up the closet cannibals, the bossless Chairmen and the NCR embassy in one swoop. At this point the NCR glowies will tell you to dispose of the BoS but that's up to you. You can have them for an alliance but it dissolves. Enclave? They're remnants so up to you who they support. At this point foil the Legion's assassination attempt on Kimball and then kill him yourself. Congratulations you are a anarchist, communist and a traitor to the western states of the wasteland. The Kings are likely to defend inner Vegas and the wannabe mobster Omertas are pushovers with the people's robotic muscle. Useful idiots, drug addicts and statists are no match for a handloaded .45-70. The only friends you can trust in the Mojave is a big iron and the cigarette on your lip.
I'm playing Fallout 4 for the first time now and it's kinda dull. Hate the talking protagonist.

if you don't have a solid blue plastic rectangle in your home are you even a true gamer?
Why use a chair when you can sit inside an entire COCKPIT, complete with cupholders and three monitors that you'll barely use most of the time? For only 14,000$!
>>6660 These are the dumbest products I have seen. All you really need is a decent 24 hour office chair, those gaming chairs really are terribly designed. They look like someone put racing car seats onto those swivel bases, Those chairs are not designed to be sat in for long periods of time.
