American Foreign Policy Simulator I play it.

>>3454 me too, it has some based USSR themed levels >>3457 i'm shit brother
>>3458 GE here, you're right, I realized this and dropped it years ago. >>3460 Found the gold.
>>3473 then you're not GE any more
The only thing I don't like about CS is the rng. I like the varied maps, the economy mini-game, the smokes and flashes and recoil patterns and the large skill gap - I just hate the fact that even when standing still and firing one bullet at a time there's still a degree of randomness unless you're awping.
>>3454 Tbh now that valve is adding operator skins I wonder if they'll make a thot IDF whore operator skin to rake in the ez money from incels and simps. Would also likely cause immense butthurt to all commies and fascists and receive media attention.

Metro thread Comrade 07/30/2020 (Thu) 17:40:53 No. 3378 [Reply] [Last]
So I'm playing exodus and it's just another boring shooter - you run, you shüt, you grab loot. But this part, when I've arrived at Yamantau, I've shit my pants at. They literally portray soviet (or russian, idk about the lore) government as a group of blood crazed cannibals feasting on their braindead subhuman people. Holy shit. Ukres just can't keep their bullshit off. Is this kind of subtle sociopolitical commentary gonna continue?

>>3443 dafuq did the red line do?
>>3444 They infected a station with a virus then set them all on fire
>>3443 the reichs whole thing in last light is that they are pathetic and ineffective at anything except killing their people. Its just this hyper cynical view that had to have a bad guy. the depiction of the reich and red line barely holds between 2033 and last light. then exodus comes along and reveals that all of their evildoing was actually being orchestrated by the invisible watchers.
>>3378 >>3397 >>3404 Exodus seems to be an adaptation of this book, even if not officially https://metrovideogame.fandom.com/wiki/Towards_the_Light_(Novel) It's basically about a group of stalkers from the Petersburg metro going out to the surface to investigate a strange light coming from Kronstadt. A member of a weird religion called "Exodus" also joins them who claims that the light is actually the sign of the Ark which will bring you to paradise. Well, the "Ark" actually exists (a ship which survived the bombing on the sea and people actually live like they lived before the war), but it has nothing to do with the cultists who are just trying to lure people to Kronstadt so they can eat them and they are also the descendants of high ranking military officers/government officials who hid in a bunker and at first devoured the workers hired for renovating the place.

Lmao imagine paying attention to the fucking story. You only play metro for the qt3.14 waifu and nothing else.

>Game features some type of Kalashnikov assault rifle and an SVD as available weapons >They're inexplicably the weakest, shittiest weapons in their categories whereas some type of NATO or Amerifat weapon is the strongest The only series I can think of that doesn't do that is STALKER, where the SVD actually owns. On a similar note: >Fire a shotgun >It has an effective range of like 10 feet STALKER also thankfully averts this, as does Far Cry 3 from what I recall.

>>3366 oh, and barrier units typically arrested soldiers, and deserters were normally sent to penal battalions instead of shot, not to mention barrier units consisted of the worst of the worst because commanders didn't wanna waste their men
>>1949 the AK owns in Counter Strike tho... RDR1-2 and Max Payne 3 have realistic shotgun ballistics
>Cursed or evil stuff is more powerful Very poor game design if you have to buff up the evil side to be threatening
>>3320 Jumping off of this because of how prevalent the mentality is in stealth games, freedom of choice being executed as separate delineated paths rather than varying options to a challenge. In other words you're not really focused on figuring out a strategy to overcome a challenge, you're deciding on what flavor of gameplay the devs have laid for you.

Level Design Comrade 08/04/2020 (Tue) 03:22:41 No. 3480 [Reply] [Last]
What do you think constitutes great level design? Let's put together some examples of levels we really like and see if we can't figure out something in common between them.
>>3480 Just don't make me go around in circles and having keys and door on opposite sites of buildings

Hoi4 central planning system Shaytan 08/04/2020 (Tue) 02:21:02 No. 3475 [Reply] [Last]
Do pics related count as "central planning"?
its only the military production that you can control
HoI4 really isn't an economy simulator. It's a war sim.
>>3481 >>3477 yes, i'd say the minimum necessary to be a central planning sim you'd have to have the inputs of employment and scarcity. Some of the challenge has to be maintaining full employment and managing resources

Zombies Thread? SaintSlice 07/27/2020 (Mon) 05:14:18 No. 3262 [Reply] [Last]
Sup Saint /games/, what's your guys take on the zombies mode in the cod series? Good, bad, murdered? How do you guys think they're going to handle it in bo5? It's probably going to be BO3 again but still you never 100% know How do the other non zombie Co op modes stack compared to it?
cod sucks
I played a shit ton of Waw and Bo1 when I was young, played WAW custom maps a lot in highschool and some of college. Bought bo3 on steam and it's nice to play custom maps on a modern engine. IDK it's probably gonna be bo3 again I agree.
Played loads of WAW zombies, recently I picked it up again and replayed those classic maps. Played BO1 zombies a little bit but not much. Thinking about buying BO3 on sale (or not buying it) just for the zombies. I remember really liking the lore when I was younger, but from what I can tell they took a played out Lovecraft turn.

Is Old School Runescape, leftist?
>>3459 No, not unless you're iron. It's basically ancap. No taxes, financial markets (GE). Ran by corporation (Jagex). It's literally ancap utopia

are there any good games for anarchists i can get for free?

>>3414 The most accurate ones are space 4X games that sidestep the entire planning debate (even among Marxists) by simply making telepathic hivemind races.
>>646 don't use bittorrent use deluge
>>3419 Lazy Deluge devs are doing fuck all on their windows version so unless you use a linux distro you're better off with qBittorrent.
>>3414 Banished. It need a lot of mod to be playable, and it's only a village in a cold mountain, but it's pure primitive communism. Or Anarchism. Or whatever.
>>3414 How could I have forgotten stellaris. Make an egalitarian civilization and get utopian abundance, or the cheap alternative shared burdens.

I think this game is on to something lads

It seems like /vrpg/ doesn't like disco elysium that much.
>>3441 /v/ was in love with the game until the devs shouted out Marx, making them super butthurt
>>3437 Hard to pindown. Cyberpunk but shitty
>>2589 even if that anon is right, we know that memories are stored in the body. If you and I swapped bodies, we wouldn't take our memories with us, would we?
>>3455 You'd think it would be more obvious that the themes to this game was more marxist than they thought it was.

>>3042 Ok, so how do you make sure that no coup happens from the military? I would very much like to purge the remaining loyalist, but how?
>>3446 They made a coup but I BTFO'd them hard with my armed people's militia. Not sure if you can stop them entirely from happening without being a centrist cuck
>>3448 Ok, so how do I make sure my loyalists are strong enough? Also I guess the way to do it is by getting the "You are surrounded" event and choosing to resist?
Ok, so I think I got a lowkey good ending. I decided give control of the agriculture to the NLP military man, defense to PSP military man and internal / external politics to CRP. Basically I turned a blind eye to rightoid military for a while, during the time arming the people militias. Eventually they started a border guerrilla war, which wasn't too nice. However, I did manage to suck off US's dick internationally, even getting nice gibs, all while instituting basically a NEP type system in the country, perhaps even more left than that, while also building up the military and creating the local peoples councils. Oh, and also I joined the NAM and despite my socialist economic policies the IMF seems happy to still help.
>>3451 As an aside, it is kind of amazing how a game from 1989 can feel as if it was made yesterday. Tells you a lot about how much shit has changed.
