GETchan VN collaboration project Comrade 06/08/2020 (Mon) 23:57:18 No. 1546 [Reply] [Last]
So our idea was as follows (as I understand what we discussed) We want to make a VN in Ren'py because the software/coding is pretty easy. moo_moo knows how to code python for the backend hardkoba does nice sexy art for the characters spurdo does 3d and 2d works and can possibly do the backgrounds and/or other design elements caballo is a writer and can write the novel bit pepe_pp does writing and some art and can assist with those moo_moo also does music (electronic) so can handle that Other people may want to contribute with their skills of course. Plot concept: Main character lives in present day Earth sadly because capitalism and the ongoing social collapse sucks. He possibly idly signs some form agreeing to be part of some preservation experiment if he dies. He then dies shortly afterward, either through suicide or through random accident/calamity

>>2157 There's a whole genre of utopian literature to glean from. I just finished the book The Dispossessed which I thought was a fairly coherent piece of anthropological fiction trying to explore what sort of values and customs that would arise of a stateless society. It tries to ground the world in the context of other hostile states and internal crises like famine/droughts and I thought the prose was quite good too I recommend it >>2079 thanks bear. That looks great; I'll ask you in the trash thread if anything comes up. We haven't made a logo for the name >>1974 who said any of us has read the book except one of us :^)

Has anybody else here played this? What do you think about it?
>>2144 you should try it is a cool game where you get to play as a communist against the nazis
>>2145 But what kind of game is it? Is it a shitty game that you shill just because you like the story?
>>2147 It's a strategy game where you try to organize a resistance cell against the Nazi, you get to recruit followers send them on missions and make tough decisions on what to do and how to react. I wouldn't say that the gameplay is something never seen before the most interesting part is the setting for sure. You basically get to live the rise of the Nazis to power I actually learned a few historical events I didn't know about. I'm worning you tho that the game can get pretty heavy if you are a particularly sensitive individual.
>>2142 Is there any way to win the game in any chapter that isn't 4? Can you stop the nazis before they fuck up Europe or is more about annoying them? I tried a "pacifist" route and i did barely any changes to history.

I don't get why it isn't mainstream yet. They are cheap AF for how awesome they are, I got a WMR headset for 230 bucks new. Literally every genre is better in VR. Even if I could only play Pavlov and Elite Dangerous I would still be obsessed.

Has anyone tried neosvr? Looks like a big stepup from vrchat. https://youtu.be/uDORSb4kxps
I'm building a new PC for VR at the end of the year and buying a headset. The plan is to get the Valve Index, but I guess that depends on what my money looks like after Christmas shopping. I really do think it is the future of games, but I still don't think the price is quite there. For it to work well we still need much better accessibility and more than the exactly one AAA title. I know weebs would blow all their dakimakura money on VR if a AAA MMORPG got released. Normies might pick it up for heavily marketed titles and free VR porn.
>>2083 This. Even though I've tried it and it was awesome, it's still too expensive. I fear if I get tired of it I will have a 600€ paperweight.
>>2161 Honestly I enjoy it a lot precisely because it's not a place for AAA shittery, feels like early computer times with janky experimental shit for enthusiasts only. If the pokers fail to make it palatable to the normies, lose a bunch of money and leave the scene for people who really care that's like two birds with one stone.

Anyone else play TF2? What's the frikken deal with those chynese lagbots? They're ruining the game. Oh, and I say CHYNESE lagbots because they're from CHYNA
>>482 I play it. Honestly, I find the lagbots funny as shit. Specially the [VALVe]NiggerKiller ones. Hope they get fixed soon, but knowing Valve, it's not gonna get fixed soon. Maybe in about 2 or 3 weeks? Also, /leftypol/ TF2 server when?

I don't know about other countries but here in Brazil at least the game is still unplayable, the only difference is that at least there isn't voice or chat spam, but 99% of the time in a match is trying to ban the 3 bots that are in your team and the 1% is waiting for the other team to ban theirs. Not that I don't appreciate the recent effort, but the game is still far from playable again

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? MOD NOTICE THREAD WILL BE MOVED TO >>>/games/ TOMORROW AS THE GODS space_ HAVE GRANTED US A LINK TO SAID BOARD IN THE NAVBAR

Do the old fallouts go into detail on how China was organized politically? were they actual commies or dengists? there was no mention of them in new vegas and 3 and 4 they're just the ebil red gommies
>>2089 I don't remember there being any significant times China was mentioned in the first two, and the wiki itself says that it's unknown if it was still Maoist at the time the bombs fell or not.
>>1816 >>1927 On the other hand, House has been in control for close to a decade, and even the so-called luxury of the strip consists mostly of jury-rigged scrap and scavenge. If he has a "plan" to get "high tech" running withing 20 more years, you'd expect he'd already have some kind of workshops or light industry prepared. Among the Soviet five-year plans, the hardest one was the first: The process of building the industry and infrastructure which'll build industry and infrastructure. You must have something to get something, and that takes time. If Vegas is currently relying on scavenging and repurposed scrap, it most definitely doesn't have the basics of maintaining itself, not to even mention the tools that House's robot army requires for its upkeep. Once the NCR and the Legion have been driven out of the Mojave, a clock is ticking and resources bleeding. Without the right tools, manufacturing, know-how, and equipment, his small empire will face attrition. And considering how lackluster his preparations have been in the past seven years on that front, "twenty years" may be both an overly optimistic goal and far too late. Not to even mention he basically sat on his ass for 126 years after regaining consciousness, doing practically speaking nothing.
>>2120 tbf The Strip does look like shit because of time limitations. It was supposed to be like 10x bigger I think. >>2107 The dialogue with the Chinese captain in FO4 seems to imply that at least they were not capitalist like in USA
