>>3337 Someone would've come up with auto-aim eventually, aiming in shooters on consoles was shit for the longest.
>>3371 Plenty already had come up with auto-aim. It was Halo that normalized permanent auto-aim that you can't disable.

>>3375 Also that was on by default, and done deceitfully, rather than having some UI indication such as crosshair/weapon movement. On top of that and regen health, I suppose there's also 2-weapon limit and mud-slow movement. But perhaps worst of all is that pretty early in development Halo pretty obviously became one of if not THE headline launch title for the system. So redesigning the controller to accommodate Halo (and the trend of other games using the right thumbstick for camera/aim control) with some kind of trackball, motion aiming, or other higher-precision input could've and should've been done. Especially since Microsoft itself already had experience with all these technologies through their Sidewinder brand.
>>3376 >if we do our job well, you don't have any idea this is going on Well they really fucked up then, because coming off of hardcore Perfect Dark sessions (where you intentionally disable autoaim so you can get headshots easier) I knew something was fucked with the aiming the very first day I played Halo.

>>3311 [BAKA MITAI] is better https://youtu.be/ByutJrnLNxU I fucking love this game. Like everyone else I got into it recently through Yakuza 0. That may actually be a kind of a bad thing sine as far as I can tell its the best game in the series. Tried kiwami 1 but it wasnt the same. Everything is much cleaner but I loved the density of Kamurocho in 0, there were so many building you could enter in 0 that you just cant in kiwami, really flattens the experince for me. As good as the main gameplay + story are, my favorite parts are the sidequests, again it gives life to the area and the business parts are fun. I wanna git gud at running the hostess club so I can talk to all the girls. I know only people who started with 0 think this, but i like nu-majima more than origninal CrAzY gUY Majima Other opinions, DAISUKE KUZE is used very well, my initial opinion of him was uncertain and he was just a dumb thug (hes that too) but over the game, I grew less 'afraid' and more mildly annoyed/amused, but also you really start to respect him as well more than anyone else in Tojo anyway Really liked Tachibanna by the end RIP to a real one, even his backstabing goon deserves some respect. The game doesnt really characterise Kazama enough for me to care abiut him beyond - Kiry likes him, I guess I could go on but you get it - all the characters are really solid; Reina, Nishki, the swole chinese guy who takes care of thr blind girl - all of them. I was surprised by how small the filsize was for such a rich game, but its because instead of doing empty flashy shit like other games, there are a few 'flashy' elemsents reused often but the real quality comes from interacting - mostly through talking ie. text - with the world. In a way, Yakuza is more about the cities than the yakuza themselves. Runing around and learning about the city is more satisfying than going between empty, one of, 'cinematic' setpieces. As for downsides I'd have to say combat. Its not really about fighting so much as it is about stunlocking enemies. The alternative is using weapons which are fun but sometimes OP. Its still alright when you get used to it but most of the fights will be learning how to stunlock the enemies and wail on them. Conversly, its incredibly frustrating to have your controller be worthless because 3 - 14 low level goons keep kicking you and thus restarting the stun lock period.

I'm still working my way through Yakuza 0, but I've been having a lot of fun with it.

Anyone else playing? It was a favorite of mine growing up and I just bought the remaster. They did a great job on it. I also love how at the end of the mission you get a newspaper headline showing the government covering up cryptos existence by blaming everything on them commies!
>>3330 >I just bought the remaster >bought Cringe. I expected better of you.
>>3330 Bumping my thread, when scanning workers some will have communist sympathies. This game is a lot more based than I remember. It's also fun in a sort of reverse xcom way in that the humans start getting alien tech as you progress.

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.

>>2135 And its still garbage
>>2135 You know since Urzikstan is supposed to be an analogy of Syria I wish they had an equivalent of Assad or the SAA in the campaign. Like there are no Urzikstani collaborators helping the Russians all the Urzikstanis are with the rebels for some reason
>>3220 I have a feeling that they originally wrote Barkov as a straight expy of Assad and then decided later on to just make him an evil Russian so it wouldn't upset the burger audience. Theres a fair few bits of dialogue that refer to Barkov and his government as if they're not russian and as only getting support from Russia. The whole idea of Barkov feels ridiculous anyway, a rogue general from a different country that happily managed to conquer a country but is also disliked by the nuclear state he's supposed to get all of his troops directly from. It would not suprise me if they swapped him out for an evil russkie because it tested with their focus groups better.

>>3289 >a rogue general from a different country that happily managed to conquer a country but is also disliked by the nuclear state he's supposed to get all of his troops directly from. That was another part that irked me. Like in the first mission there is apparently a distinction between these unmarked mercenaries working for Barkov and the uniformed Russian soldiers that aren't working for him but for the Russian government. But in the entire campaign all of Barkov's men are uniformed Russian soldiers
>>3300 Thats one of the things I mean, theres a fair few parts of the campaign where its still written as if Barkov isn't a Russian general. If I still played these games for stories I'd have been very taken out of it.

Thought we should have a thread on these guys, there's one in /hobby/ but the post numbering fucks up when you move a thread so we may as well start again. They're also like 60% off for the next 10 hours https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/13416/Cold_War_Bundle/ Includes: Crisis in the Kremlin, Crisis in the Kremlin: The Accident, Ostalgie: The Berlin Wall, China: Mao's legacy, Ostalgie: Legacy of Hoxha, Ostalgie: Fall of the Curtain, Crisis in the Kremlin: Homeland of the Revolution And I found some stuff of their latest game (screenshots attached why does this shitty website upload them in random order?): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvodCCK2u2U

>>2294 For me, I think, the absolute height of Kremlin Games is their original CITK where you have the military, KGB etc lying to you telling you it's fine after ordering a nuclear assault on half the planet and getting thoroughly deposed, you just don't see that much nowadays. Dr Evil GDR that bombs everything and blames it on NATO is also a great feature. I think it will be very interesting to win as Russia in the new game, since they're not naive at all and despite being socialists pushing a narrative are very cynical in how they think victory is achieved I agree with them. I'm ready for narco-state USSR tbqh, with a bit of kidnapping on the side.
>>2295 I think it's not going to be about Russia, but an unspecified SR. So I think there might be an interesting dynamic where you will have to suck up to Putin's Russia at the cost of your independence to fend off from the western influences. Note how in the screenshot you got what looks like Russian and US influence both at 50.
I recognise that the games are great, but they are too complicated to be worth the time. Except for DDR, Romania, and Hungary in Ostalgie. That shit was fuckn ez.
as much as I like them conceptually, the gameplay can feel too mechanical and the graphics are practically powerpoint slideshow tier
I wish the game told you more about what your policies and technologies actually do.

https://youtu.be/aegzuPD1DUc they're thinking of bringing back g4tv if you dont know what that is, watch this video https://youtu.be/ZEBwGOHntro how the fuck do they expect this to ever work out? I have great memories of g4 and techtv before it, and i would love it to come back. But its IMPOSSIBLE, it will get cancelled immediately. Even the memory of it should be getting cancelled. There was so much that shit that doesn't fly now like ironic racism, or so exploitative about women. And attack of the show was basically filming olivia munn getting sexually harassed for 2 hours a day The problem I see, is that they either have to make it woke, which would suck. OR even worse they have to make it anti-woke. It would become like some cringe youtube alt-right shit. There's no going back to just politically neutral gaming where its fine to grope women and they have to like it.

Sterdust and liberalism in gaming journos Comrade 07/15/2020 (Wed) 13:51:38 No. 2904 [Reply] [Last]
Recently people like Sterling and Schreier actually made a lot of shit that actually came close to class concious. Especially about gaming escapism and the kind of "anti-political" hypocrite mentality, showing that most rightoid actually DOES want politics in their games, but their kind of politics like having CoD imperialism simulator and America wank. Like this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q2ibrU5Xpg >The "it's optional" reasoning is only applicaple to consummer products like games but not the entire system of capitalism >every criticism exist in its own bubble is practically applicabe to most defenders of neoliberalism Why can't these people just connect the dots and see all of this is a systematic problem with capitalism itself? Or do they actually know it but choose to remain silent because themselves are afraid of alienating the normies?

>>2904 >Or do they actually know Sterling sure as fuck does but he needs that patreon cash
>>2904 Jim sterling's content is something I've enjoyed, for purely entertainment purposes (the load of videos he did on shitty Steam games years ago is a prime example of videos that are just plain funny) and also informative (he has loads of videos documenting abusive and manipulative practices in the gamine industry and has hinted in a video before that he is well aware that these dynamics are at play in virtually every industry beyond just video games. But at the same time, I find him to be rather frustrating. His content and him as a person. First of all, he is clearly in line with identity politics and as far as I can tell, more liberal even if he has an inkling of class consciousness. I've stopped watching his videos for the most part, not out of bitching about him being an "SJW" or whatever, but he repeats a lot of the same points, honestly because nothing changes. I fear that if there ever was another Gamergate-esque moment (yes, I know, there will never be another capital G GamerGate because the conditions that produces it have shifted, and social liberals have won a LOT of ground in that space) but something like it, another BIG controversy in gaming or gaming media that libs can spin to panting their opposition as all a bunch of nazis, He just seems like the kind of guy who would abandon honest analysis like the kind he is perfectly capable of when scrutinizing video game companies and publishers, and would hop on board the lib/sjw train of calling the opposition fascists. IDK something just rubs me the wrong way there. Was he outright anti-gamergate in the past? I honestly don't remember if he took a strong stance on it
>>2918 >Gamer gate was about ethics in games journalism
>>2918 His current coverage of Ubisoft figuratively and actually raping its employees has a huge lib bent to it that I always find annoying. He to this day still trying to portray it as something sensational that is only indicative of only Ubisoft when literally anyone especially him can see it as a systematic problem with capitalist corporate structure itself. Only through the power of the manager over the code proles and how lenient the stockholders still consider the “rock star” culture of game directors (which has already reached the real end by the time John Romero tried to make people “his bitch”), these slime bags can do whatever they want without impunity, including just drugging and fucking their workers in the ass. This also makes me realize how much of “cancel culture” is just a gigantic sham of radlibs cope dependent on shamming the offenders without giving them any actual convictions. No wonder the big corporations still support them so much. No matter how “canceled” these people are, they’ll just leave the limelight and continue raping as usual.
>>3177 Yes.
