>people who try to keep the capitalist faction happy
>>416 I go out of my way to ignore them in T4, but somehow I'm just so successful they never get pissed off. It drives me mad! I want those uppity counter-revolutionary fucks to try well-planned defences and bleed all over them!
>>417 Then get secret police and repress the capitalists for no particular reason.
>>417 >>417 Tropico 4, when I played it and got the mechanics was easy as fuck, normal that the capitalist faction is happy, it's almost impossible to fail in that game.
>>416 All you have to do to appease Capitalists is make a lot of money, which, coincidentally, is also what you have to do before you can accomplish anything else. There is no reason not to have at least 80% with every faction, although I sometimes go full Fedora mode and never build any religious buildings just because I can. It is kind of hard, because you have to make sure entertainment, housing, medical, etc all stay really high to compensate for everyone's abysmal Religious satisfaction, but after you get Newspapers and Schools indoctrinating everyone into Militant and Communist the Religious faction just fades away.

emulators Comrade 05/25/2020 (Mon) 13:18:20 No. 679 [Reply] [Last]
Citra got released on mobile and my Snapdragon 632 is able to handle Pokemon Y pretty decently, but I'm really scared that it will decrease my phones overall life shorter because I think emulators in general cause a lot of stress to my phone Anyone know how do I keep my phone perfect and functional for ages so that I can keep gambling in my gachas? I keep getting the poor thing bumped into walls and it even fell fully into the water for 5 seconds
>>679 >Anyone know how do I keep my phone perfect and functional for ages so that I can keep gambling in my gachas? organize with your workers and start a socialist revolution, after the proletariats have taken over start establishing socialism and when the global economy has reached a post scarcity state of communism, you will get free smartphones that are way more capable than any of the crap today.
>>679 Phones are built by cappies to die, but I advise not submerging it in water, as that will vastly lessen the lifespan. If you've a phone with replaceable Li-Ion, then kill the battery with gayming as hard as you like; you can just swap it out when it's dead. If not, then I dunno man, just be easier on your phone physically and digitally; don't play as intensive shit as frequently and don't smack it into stuff.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsjCoh6rFd0 I know about its factual inaccuracies. That it's just a copy of enemy at the gates. However let me explain how this was many kids first exposure to the ussr and what a great job it did communicating through gameplay what the war was. The soviet campaign takes place last in the game, after the british and american ones. Throughout the game you visit many locations and the mood is an adventurous one. Soldiers remark on celebrating with bottles of wines from french cellars, the beauty of the architecture besides the one or two artillery shelled buildings. And there's never any shortage in supplies. This quickly changes with the soviet campaign. From the start the design is something that looks like hell. There's no green grass, the sky isn't even blue. Every single building is destroyed by shelling. And what really let you know shit just got real, you don't even get a gun. They didn't teach ww2 history besides d-day and the atomic bomb, so to a child, this was formative. The creators did an unmatched job communicating the disparity between east and west fronts in the war. It was very clear all of a sudden that the soviets were fighting for their survival in a way the british and americans weren't. So bravo to call of duty, regardless of how shit it might have become later on, this game will always be one of the greatest achievements of the medium.

>>434 I mean that's better than recent Cod but not better than your average modern shooter. Hell, modern warfare would just have enemies spawn endlessly and the way you progressed was just based on where you physically were, so you could sprint to the finish and if you didn't get shot it would work.
>>432 >>433 CoD isn't to blame for the trend of cinematic games, that's Half-Life 1 and especially 2. The success of those set games like CoD down that path.
>>430 at this rate within 5 years there will be a German campaign for a FPS game
>>419 The Soviet campaign in CoD WAW is genuinely one of the best portrayals of WW2 in vidya history
>>702 It was disappointing for skipping from Stalingrad straight to Berlin. No Moscow, no Leningrad, no Kursk, no Kharkov.

>>624 What games would you want to be featured? >>629 Actually, the FGC would probably be the least bougie of all e-sports. It has its beginning in the grassroots, dare I say it is the working classes' esport. Most of these tournamnents were started not in a business meeting, but at someones local arcade. Or at someone's basement. And these kids doing all this were not rich suburbanites, they were kids who only had a limited amount of quarters, and so they either had to be loaded or had to be good in order to continue playing. And I do agree that overtime, it has been co-opted and brought into the more bougie aspects of esports, sponsors, advertisers, and so on. At its core, its all about the grassroots. >>659 >when's melty Around 12 am, Across the street in the Popeyes bathroom. >>661 Mortal Kombat 11 is having an online tournamnet tho

>>664 That is really fucking good. Do you have more early 2000s arcade stuff to recommend? That specific period of time is quickly becoming a golden era for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUP_yAmJbNU (doesn't really fit the bill, but still)
>>684 I played the XX series religiously until Ishiwatari and the rest of AWS betrayed me with Xrd. Ishiwatari's music since Overture hasn't really impressed me, and I get the sense that he might have been a one-trick pony since most of his good themes really just stole riffs from classic heavy metal songs. Guilty Gear Isuka on the other hand has a great little original soundtrack that he had nothing to do with.

Why don't we hear about them more often? Theses OSTs were totally different than japanese ones for consoles at the same time, because of the technology but also in the composition. The MT-32 is my dream machine, I currently own a SC-88 that I used for Touhou and it was... something.

Like many other Mono "ports" of Microsoft .NET vomit, Terraria runs like a pile of hot garbage that struggles to maintain 60fps even on decent hardware.

Stardew Valley is a fucking good game and runs perfectly on linux even in my old hardware
>>678 Can confirm. In addition, as a fan of the early Harvest Moon games I think the developers completely nailed many of the mechanics seemingly stumbled upon early games as a fluke and then rejected in later games as they obsessed over totally useless features and tedious realism. The characters may be a bit lacking but I'm ready to say this is on par with Harvest Moon 64.

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.

Playing a lot of FreeOrion and Freeciv lately myself. Are there any grand strategy games that properly deal with the micromanagement problem in late game?

>>606 Does Dominions count as grand strategy? You play as a god trying to knock off all the other gods and become the big guy at the top. The game mostly focuses on building and arranging armies and giving your spellcasters orders. It also has some fun memes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLyWKkAZn2w
>>657 The last time I played Dominions I encountered a weird bug where I spawned on an ocean tile and couldn't move units. Couldn't find any info on that bug, so I don't know if it's common.
>>674 I've never had that happen, although Illwinter is one of those "two guys renting an office in a strip mall" type companies so crazy bugs happen. They're a pretty dedicated pair of guys, though, so patches come out regularly, known bugs get fixed, and they're cranking out loads of new free content for Dominions V in the form of some cool factions that I won't play because I'm too lazy to make their gimmicks work when I can just play MA Ulm or EA Ermor, but the existence of a Prestor John inspired faction makes me happy.

Is this game Marxpilled?
>>348 You can guess Itoi leans left but why should it be Marxist in particular? Because the animals are a synthesis of nature and industrialization? This game is anti-productivist at best.
Mother 3 is great, but don't overlook the first two games...
>>650 OP here. I liked EarthBound a lot more than M3
>>652 Same, Earthbound is much more interesting. There are so many things and subjects, and the final boss still scares me. I prefer the way Earthbound talks about capitalism and burgerEagleland. Cynical undertones and creepy representations with absurd Japanese humour.
