Steam and possibly other online digital distribution stores will be forced to let you resell games you buy from them if EU wins court case.

Would this be a win for socialism, komrades?

I really believe we should just make a communist party for the eu and take over it, didn't have much of a problem with it so far.

>>1487 >I would rather not be stuck with browser games.I want something a little more involved than a low effort Skinner box that is designed to suck money out of my wallet. Well there is no reason why browser-games ought to be low effort, but if you want to install software locally, then you need to improve the software development tools to the extend that normies can modify software. As in have in-game-code-editing with program-logic-visualisation, as well as coding-aids that have a high level of idiot proofing.
they could tax those trades much like they allready do with the community market. this could just serve as an extension to that community market.

Oldout thread Anonymous Comrade 10/24/2019 (Thu) 23:05:16 No. 2743 [Reply] [Last]
Old Fallout discussion, politics themes in the games and basic dunking on the shallowness of Bethesda's Fallouts.

Fallout 1&2 had some pretty anti-capitalist messages that never showed up in 3&4 methinks and the whole point of the series was shining light overexploitation and human conflict being self-destructing.

>>2758 On the subject of Arcanum. Playing it makes me realized how ridiculous /pol/‘s view of society are, where sentient creatures still have their nature decided to be some arbitrary bullshit in the case of the orcs in the game and how even as much as they hate to admit it their views stemmed from religious creationism. But it’s still annoying to me how the only quest that deals with this is the quest about stopping the orc rebellion.

Deus Ex Series thread Anonymous Comrade 10/26/2019 (Sat) 00:46:42 No. 2683 [Reply] [Last]
I just started playing the original Deus Ex after watching Sseth's video on it recently, and I'm hooked. I played the new games a couple years which were also great, they introduced me to Cyberpunk. Thoughts on the series?

>My only critique so far is that sneaking is basically pointless because I always get spotted when I shoot no matter what, although I suspect I'll be able to upgrade in the future so that this doesn't happen.
you have more success being sneaky if you use melee weapons(aim for the back) or silent projectile weapons like the crossbow(you get silencers later)

Reminder there was nothing wrong with the ending of Mankind Divided.
>b-b-but the main plot is unresolved
"No".
The game starts with you witnessing a terrorist attack, the game follows you tracking down the terrorist group and their leader, and the game ends with you stopping their leader.
>b-b-but the loose threads
Why does that mean the main story was not finished? The narrative was complete, the mission you embarked on was accomplished. The "loose threads" are there for clues at what is to come of the trilogy
>b-b-but that's unacceptable
Well that depends - if you like a movie series such as The Lord of the Rings, or pretty much any non-anthology tv show, then surely you don't think it's unacceptable? They have loose threads that won't be resolved until the sequel/followup, so why do you treat Mankind Divided differently?
>>2695
the terrorist attack is immediately shown to be a false flag for some higher up conspiracy, and that's the main plot. the terror group is a sideshow. Jensen being a double agent trying to take down the illuminati takes up as much if not more playtime than dealing with the terror group. It'd be like Deus Ex 1 ending after you get to lebedev. There was clearly more to the story.

>They have loose threads that won't be resolved until the sequel/followup, so why do you treat Mankind Divided differently?
I don't like Witcher 2, but one problem it didn't have was this one. The story within the game was done well enough that ending it on a cliffhanger didn't bother anyone. Mankind Divided dropped the ball, and very clearly for trying to squeeze as much as they could out of fans.

I've only played through it twice, and in one "session" so maybe i'll lighten up on it if I ever replay it, but I don't feel an urge to. Whereas with every other game in the series I have gone back to multiple times. It wasn't awful, I had fun playing it, it just wasn't at the level of the rest of them.
>>2694
>use melee weapons(aim for the back)
ah fuck, never tried that. thanks for the pointer.

Dark Heresy Game Night Anonymous Comrade 10/29/2019 (Tue) 03:43:44 No. 2765 [Reply] [Last]
Date, rules, setup and polling for the Dark Heresy game,

If you're gonna play just give a reply saying so and also we still need a GM and to decide on what supplements we're using, character sheets etc.

And the date. That bit's important.

Weeelll... it's not the system I would have picked, but it would be fun to play with /leftypol/ bros, so sure, I'll play. Not at a GM though, I don't have enough organisation skills etc.

Alright I'm doing a strawpoll because nobody seems to bother even saying "ya I'm in" and we still haven't even got a GM or anything yet, so if we could move things along a little.

>0 people volunteered for GM
lel. maybe we should just play quest themed after dark heresy. I'm sure someone on fullchan /tg/ must have tried it at one point.
>>2777
also I apologize for not being responsive OP. I thought I was getting day off this week for sure but my boss decided to fuck me over by cancelling my vacation. damn it feels good to be wage slave
>>2777
Mate, with these kinds of things, it needs to be the DM that pushes it. They are doing more work than all the players put together, you can't just draft something else into doing it. I would like to play something too but the players are just receiving the DM's kindness.

I didn't expect CK3 so soon. I assume the base game will be better planned around the release of DLC. Hopefully the intrigue, politics, and general RPG elements are better thought out. I'm guessing the game will be shallow and bare-bones on launch given the current trend with Paradox games.

I don't see what this has to do with my post.
>>2740
Because you were expressing hope for the politics and RPG elements in CK3, AKA the core elements of the game.....from paradox......in 2019(or whatever year CK3 comes out in). Poor soul.
>>2741
I said I hope for improvements, but then immediately made clear I expect a shallow game given the current trend with Paradox games.

Oh boy
Speaking of games, does anyone have the rulebook for Imperialism in Space?
Reminder that Monopoly was just a mod of the Georgist Landlord's Game.
Monopoly is a terrible board game, like it just goes on indefinitely unless the players decide when it's time to stop. It's just completely mind-boggling how this game even has a following when there's better games like Chess or Uno.

Also, this jab at socialists is more of a jab at liberal urbanites than anything, so I guess they know their target audience is old fucks who still believe in Red Scare propaganda and people who don't anything about board games.
