How? Comrade 11/04/2020 (Wed) 18:12:08 No. 6166 [Reply] [Last]
How does a game this good get unnoticed?
3 posts omitted.
I would gladly put 1000+ hours in this game but it makes my PC hard crash at times and I'm too lazy to get a new PSU. Excited for the potential Titanfall 3 tho.
Fun game! Movement is great, gunplay is fine and the titans themselves are satisfying to control once you get the hang of them. Population is in a bit of a dire state right now though, and once your MMR reaches a certain threshold you're bound to run into some stomps which you'll be on either side of as a real player. Fortunately, the game provides a lot of fun and helpful stuff to do even for shit or new players. I really like how they made that work and it's a welcome contrast to games like CoD where the rich just get richer and going 1-20 as a below average player isn't unthinkable.
>>6166 The reason is simple, the same month of it's launch EA also released battlefield 1 and pushed it extremely to take advantage of the recent pr disaster of: Call of Duty Infinite warfare; the game with 3.9 million dislikes on it's trailer. It's a shame really, and since Apex is doing so well, we're not going to see a Titanfall 3 for like 9 years. The only way to save the game is to just make the multiplayer f2p and release some content (which would probably be just recycled content from the first game). >>6169 To be fair on them, the games they made were cod 1, 2, 4, and mw2. Other than the last one I mentioned, there fairly fine games, most of the annoyance of cod was because of activision.
I really wanted to play this but there were no servers and no players down here in latam. Another sad part of being a third worlder.
>>6166 It was released 1 week inbetween both battlefield and CoD. I think EA has ambitions to make a 3rd game even though it undersold due to their retarded release date

So now that the communist boogeyman doesn't make much sense in the 21st century, what should be used instead? Plain old terrorists?

>>6254 It’s still relevant though. Today anything that’s not fash or lib is labeled as a communist.

>>4502 What do you mean by "beat the coup", exactly? Do you mean resisting when you get the "you are surrounded" event and hope for the best? Because from my experience no matter which faction does that event, resisting always ends in death.
>>4503 I can't remember in that much detail, but you can beat the coup. It results in the rightoid military getting purged.
>>4508 Right, I think I got it: >Say the most socialist things during the interview >Appoint Casas to agri, Fleming to def, Nunez to IA and Iglesias to EA. >Have an encounter with Landless Labourer, with USSR ambassador and with Trade Union leader, accept all proposals. >Go to consultations >Speak with agri minister about Land Reform, Producer credit and then land reform again, accept all advice. >Speak with IA about national organizing, but take the advice from one of the other 3, talk about corruption and accept, talk about national organizing again and also take the advice of one of the other 3. >I think at this point turn 1 ends >Speak with agri minister about attacks on land reform, accept advice to give arms >I believe now a big chain of events happens - accept IMF loans, arrest the guards, assert authority and reject amerilard ambassador with asking for advice >Then speak to the rights activist, agree with her. >Strikers ask for rights, agree >Fashoid starts asking for amnesty, use minister advice to deny him >Right after this speak to def minister about right-wing insurgency >Turn 3 starts >Some guy wants to end price control, use advice for denial

>>4514 I think I should elaborate. After turn 5 or 6, half of the time you speak with an encounter person the game will softlock by greying out all option apart from "help" tutorial one. I thought I could avoid it by not talking to them, but randomly they will approach you themselves, like the trade union fucker who is like an over attached GF that has to ask every turn weather your revolutionary government that just sued US to the world court is still pro-union rights.
>>4514 >>4515 So... anyone managed to solve this? Let's treat this as the final bump. Would be a cool achievment for /games/ if we managed to solve this game. Worst case scenario, is it possible to acquire the game files of Hidden Agenda it self, and if so, can one crack them open to find the cout commands that output the ending text? In that case we could see what the "golden" ending would be if it didn't softlock.

The only thing you can do is work hard and survive in this world of scarcity. >You wonder why it's not possible to just go back to your old life, but then again maybe it would have been better if you had died during the war. It was a very dangerous time when people were dying left and right. >You wonder if lower stage capitalism is possible in some form or if it's always the case that the only way to go is directly from a war-torn feudal society. You imagine that it would be much easier to go back to when slavery was still legal. >You don't accept this conclusion as you want to achieve full comminism as soon as possible. You don't know how long you have left to live, but you're going to use it to fight the powers that be. >You fight the powers that be by doing your job. You're just a cog in the machine, but you feel a great sense of satisfaction knowing that you're part of the problem, the system that exploits and subjugates you. You start a communist party because you believe that it's the only way to go, but then you find out that there's already a communist party. You were so engrossed in your studies that you failed to notice this tiny little sect. >You join the communist party, but never get a chance to use it. The member of the other party kill you in a surprise attack when you least expect it. >You come back to life and find that the system still hasn't changed. The working class still doesn't have enough to survive while the rich continue to get richer. This isn't what you fought for, but what can you do? >You start the revolution all over again and when you're done with that you go back to fighting the rich. It's never ending, but then revolutions always are. >You gulag the rich until you're old and then die in your sleep. >You come back to life as Stalin, but you don't want to be Stalin, you want to be free. You find it ironic that the only way to be truly free is to destroy the system that enslaves you in the first place. >You destroy the system that enslaves you and the working class. You bring down the capitalist state and create a workers' state. <The revolution has succeeded!

PC Videogames were only good between 1993 and 2000 Comrade 10/24/2020 (Sat) 13:32:30 No. 5860 [Reply] [Last]
This is not a discussion thread this is a declaration. What I am about to say is NOT up for debate and you CANNOT possibly dispute anything written here. Remember how early cars could only be operated by literal mechanics because they were so unintuitive and shit? Games pre-1993 were exactly like that. Games had no plot and shite gameplay which does not hold up at all these days, nevermind the unbearably primitive graphics. Gaming was the nichest of hobbies and considering the fact that PCs used to cost like 15'000 dollary doos in todays money, it was never going to become mainstream. Then in 1993 K̶n̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶c̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ saw the release of Doom and Ultima VII: The Black Gate (whose expansion Ultima VII Part 2: Serpent Isle would surpass the base game), the mother and father of modern gaming. Doom as every brainless chimp knows invented the modern FPS and by extension TPS genres, the two most lucrative and popular gaming genres and showed how fucking rad vidya gaems could be. It was mainstream, caused just the right amount of moral panic and sold millions. Doom would then be surpassed by Doom 2 and finally by Blood, the best non-3d shooter period. Ultima VII was the first genuinely good and playable Ultima game that still holds up. While the plot is hot trash, it proved the viability of the open world. Serpent Isle would then go on to prove that games could tell an engaging story. Together, they laid the foundation for every modern RPG including the Baldur's Gate series which has yet to be surpassed in excellence. Not only did the 90s see the most influential games of all time, they were also the best. Why? Because during this time, the industry had struck the perfect balance between technological capability and commercialisation. Games before did not have the tech to be good and games after were ruined by capitalism. Ideas could flourish and were unburdened by investor interests, at least not to the degree of today. All of this culminated in 2000 the undisputed best year in gaming. BG 2 is the best crpg of all time (Planescape Torment has the best story but is lacking as a gaming experience). Red Alert 2 is the best RTS of all time. Diablo 2 is the best action rpg of all time. Deus Ex is the best PC game period according to some. These days, no risks are taken. Games like Myst, Myth 1 or 2 or even Planescape could never be made today. Games are so fucking expensive to make and in order to make back their money, devs are forced to pander to the most common denominator. Gamers are Nazis, who cry and whine about idpol anytime a woman is on screen. Nerds back then were progressive and you never heard anything close to the gamergate bullshit of today. Graphics move more copies than concepts and plots are dumbed down so that every shitlib can understand them. Indiegames provide some refuge from the modern hell that is 21. century gaming but even things considered these days to be masterpieces like Undertale, Cave Story or Disco Elysium pale in comparison to the golden age. Im not gonna proof read any of this lmao

Games industry as a wider form has degenerated, especially with the death of the mid-tier games. However 1) the indie scene is doing real well and is over time moving onto the mid-tier territory on its own, 2) an atarii crash is innevitable, as well as a reneisance that it will bring, 3) it only recently (over the past decade) went to shit like this, and arguablly it was the 00's to 10's+ that was the best years for the wider gaming industry (KotoR's, Bioshock, Dragon Age, Warcraft 3 and WoW, Return to Wolfenstein, Morrowind, Arcanum, Witcher and others), while even the early 10's to 20's had good stuff from larger companies, like aformentioned Souls games, Witcher 2 and 3, and, of course, the CRPG reneisance (though many of those are more indie). >Gamers are Nazis, who cry and whine about idpol anytime a woman is on screen And do people treat then seriously? They are a joke, the lowest common denominator that you talk about. >Nerds back then were progressive and you never heard anything close to the gamergate bullshit of today. That's just culture shit making a backswing, only tangentially related to gaming. Also, again, only really a problem since 2012ish. >Graphics move more copies than concepts and plots are dumbed down so that every shitlib can understand them Again, mostly true for AAA, but not so much for indie. And I don't really recall old games, outside of those well remembered monolithic cult classics, to be much different story wise. Oh, and the graphics shit was just as true back then, for instance see Quake 2, or that Deus Ex was lowkey mocked for its dogshit graphics. As for concepts, the entire indie sphere is crawling with them, especially the games I mentioned in point one.

>>6223 Play Golden Sun 1 before 2 if you haven't done it, it's really one big game separated in two cartridges, and a masterpiece at that.
You've never played Chrono Trigger? What's wrong with you?
>>6224 This game will stay with me forever. One of the great classics. >>6226 Yeah, despite its endless praise I wouldn't consider it overrated. Extremely ambitious games that actually deliver deserve all the praise they get. Has anyone actually played Legend of Dragoon? It's infamous for its length but is it good?
>>6226 I used to not listen to other peoples opinion thats why =) >>6230 legend of dragoon is on my extended list, I've listened to the OST quite a bit and it was wonderful but was kinda thrown off by the gameplay from watching footage

I don't want to be "that guy" but it's always stuck out to me as strange that the ending of the witcher game series ends with Geralt as a landlord. Both as a character and story wise it's a strange place for him to end up. He's very accepting of suddenly having a servant and literal peasants working this big vineyard for him. Should seem like Geralt would resist being in that kind of position. Witcher series also examines a lot of contemporary ideology through the prism of this particular world, even economic exploitation like debts or unfair wages, but in this one instance the feudal arrangement just goes unremarked upon. I dunno what was up with that. Not a bad thing, i just noticed it.
>>6206 >game and book both made by cucked poolanders >the devs being noted to love crunching employees just as much as other publishers just that they hide scummy shit really well <game and book take after their reactionary bourgeois ideals Wow gee. So strange!
>>6206 >Polish authors What did you expect?
I personally just don't consider the last DLC to be cannon, or at least consider it to happen separate from the main story. The actual W3 endings for Geralt of: >Dying after loosing hope in a self-destructive fit >Keeping on witchering >Becoming a prize-husband for a court sorceress >Retiring with his love in recluse Seem way better.

>>6060 Tried it. Amazing start as a communist. Sure, your relationship with all factions is destroyed, but just over a few months I stacked up a ton of credits without even leaving Askonia. Turns out making supply runs for space North Korea is extremely profitable. And hey, since everyone hates me, I don't even get the choice to use the "legal" 30% tariff market. I'm already level 15 from profitable trades.
So talking about the lore of the game, did Ludd cause the collapse? I found a listening post with a log of an old Domain prisoner list, one of whom was a cult leader with a strong "anti-tech, anti-science and anti-Domain" sentiment. Wouldn't be surprised if he was somehow involved with blowing up the gates. Or maybe he just used the collapse as an opportunity to start his cult on a civilizational level and I just read too deep into it.
>>6201 its unlikely, the collapse was probably just a somewhat random event that Ludd just took advantage of.
So I've assembled a huge space jihad fleet, barely manage to scrape a win against REDACTED fleets with a radiant, nevermind two, and couldn't even scratch the REDACTED base. Any recommended mods?
>>6214 What kind of ships are you using? I am still new to the game (started after this thread), but from my experiance you want to have a shit ton of carriers. Also are you colonising? It's basically impossible to field a proper fleet without it in my experiance.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1100284147 pretty good ethics mod that is quite well balanced in my opinion, also contains the original ethics so you don't have to worry too much allows for TRUE SPACE COMMUNISM
>>6139 >What are your opinions? The only good thing about stellaris is that it conforms to the leftist worldview (ironically, porky Collectivism equals Authoritarianism versus Individualism equals Freedom equals Entrepreneurship was overtime changed to Freedom equals Egalitarianism and Communism, Private business equals oligarchy) The game, however, was broken by later patches. It's overcomplicated and requires tedious routine, but also doesn't have any variance at all. It's perfectly balanced, but due to being overcomplicated and drawnout doesn't work out for multiplayer.
>>6161 >>6162 Now now, let's not get into extremes. The Xeno is made to be oppressed and exploited, same as the native population, to fuel the war machine.
>>6194 >Freedom equals Entrepreneurship was overtime changed to Freedom equals Egalitarianism and Communism, Private business equals oligarchy) I mean kinda but not really, a very common egalitarian empire type is 'democratic crusader' which is basically just America/NATO, there's nothing to say that egalitarian nations have to be commie, just that they can't be full hyperfascist >>6195 Fool. The xeno is to be integrated into our interstellar utopian state, and their best genetic qualities added to our own.
>>6196 >Democratic crusader bad Well I am sorry hippy doodle, but communal parity has to be spread from the barrel of a gun. >>6160 To add: The Khan sounds cool, but... He croaks way too soon to his assassin sex slave gf, so he only ends up a threat for like a quarter of the Galaxy The War in Heaven is cool, but... The rest of the game past midgame bores me so much that I literally never seen it. Galactic market sounds cool, but... Its fucking sterile and carries zero weight for the actual gameplay, as its just a seperate tab where you can buy or sell limitless amounts of goods. Traderoutes? Piracy? Smuggling? Nah, fuck that shit, no need. The L sector or whatever its called is a cool idea, but... Its just three prescripted outcomes of what is inside. Curators are a cool idea, but... They are just a guaranteed thing that will be a part of all your games and there is no real poin to them outside of "dump credits to gain x modifier".
