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?

>>4176 STALKER doesn't care a whole lot about politics external to the game
>>4176 Stalker doesn't give anything like a shit about politics, Duty and Freedom seem to be some weird Communist/Anarchist thing on steroids but it has almost nothing to do with real world politics and more to do with their views on the zone and how it should be dealt with World outside the zone is supposed to be our world but a little nicer due to the progress and random bits of super high nigh inexplicable technology and medicines derived from stuff pulled out of the zone but slightly worried about the slowly expanding circle of unreality, but you never hear about it other than odd bits of flavour text and the books Any Stalker born after 1986 cant't into politics. All they know is The Bar, case they Gravi, squat, be prison homosexual, eat tushonka and die.

>>4179 I assume STALKERs external politics to be almost identical to those of Roadside Picnic which it is based on.
Do you think a movie for Metro or STALKER will get made?

>Shows the deep running corruption, inefficiencies and the shear oppression of Anglo-imperialism
>Working classes oppressed by the rich who have the luxury of time made material on their side
>Queen Victoria is a tyrannical monster, literally cannibalizing her servants and consuming highly illegal and body altering drugs Bonus Lyndon LaRouche points just for that
>Warhammer 40k type work-worlds staffed by wageslaves living in worse than slave-like conditions, exploited by their Dickensian overseers
>Communist, Anarchist and Esoteric-Anarchist revolutionaries portrayed mostly favorably, or at least more empathetically than other sides
>Reform is not enough and thus fails, only way away from the current situation is through drastic change to the current material conditions of the setting
>Trains. In space

Is this literally the most based game apart from really specialist kind ones like Kremlin Games in the last few years?

>>3054 Oh man, thanks a lot for posting that, saw it about a week ago and it reminded me to go back and play through Cultist Simulator now that it is updated. In all honesty I am pretty torn on the game. On the one hand I really love it, but on the other - it can be really freaking annoying at times. Since I can't get the cracked version with DLC's to work, I completed only the definitive one by doing Power victory into Apostle Aestuant victory, but even that took way too long, and this is coming from a player that already cracked the bullshit that the game throws at you. Even then, it was still stressful at times, knowing I could loose many hours of progress because I skipped paint day. The Apostle Aestuant victory at time feels like it is taking the piss in all honesty. Having really unclear instructions is kind of cool I guess, but the decision to put one of the conditions for victory on a timed card that you can only get 2-3 times max while also needing another timed card with a lifetime so small that you can only get it after the one which is limited in quantity is pretty fucking sadistic game design. Also I'd argue they screwed up with the rival Long. At best he was annoying and quite literally works like a gnat bite - it gets worse the more you scratch it. I decided to ignore them, which is sad, as I was interested in what would happen if I got to kill them, but I didn't dare risk the run. Not to mention how grindy it is, especially if you die and have to restart your entire follower, book and spell collection. At least I am a WoW player AND I played CitK where I had to flip all of the Third World red on many occasions, so at least I have some resilience built up for this type of shit, but I can really see how it would be a massive turn-off. It made me rage quit a few times back when the game was fresh, as deaths were more common for a newbie. However, positives outweigh the annoyances. The story is phenomenal in my opinion. Best part is that it makes you feel like you yourself become an expert on all of this esoteric knowledge - you realize what Names, Longs and Hours actually are, you start to understand the rivalries between them, synonymous names and so on. The only other time I felt something similar was in Sunless Skies when you slowly start to understand how the setting works, and when I was really into Star Wars bootlegs, slowly starting to perfectly understand not only what the garbled gibberish words mean, but also how they came to be translated that way. Anyway, its not only the presentation of the story, but the setting it self that is fascinating, with an interesting take on the Pantheon trope and a good use of the 1930's historic moment as a backdrop to the games events, which seems to only be stronger in the Exile DLC, that I sadly can't play. The writing is, well, good, solid, no complaints. Actually, this might be somewhat of a non sequitur, but the romance writing is great, even though the innuendos and descriptions never even cross softcore, and has, let's just say, proven to be great material for me. Also, while I ragged on the gameplay before, it is really great in certain aspects. It is cool to discover things for the first time, and even though I would consider myself a "veteran", it is still managing to surprise me at times with things I can do. Also, the reward loop of gathering lore and being rewarded by getting to read occult scraps from it to expand your own knowledge of the setting is really good, though doesn't quite work in repeated playthroughs. I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever, and Knock I only used for one or two spells and nothing more. Same goes for Heart and Moth, but I know these are needed for the Dancer DLC. Perhaps this criticism is misplaced and the Priest and Medium use the other three, but as it stands baseline, it is sad that there are no real uses for these lore aspects. Also some rites for spells are downright useless as they sacrifice things you'd never want to give away. Would be interesting if certain spells required certain rites as well. In conclusion, a very good game with some nagging flaws. Would recommend to all who liked Sunless series, like esoteric fiction or like challenging puzzle games.
How does this compare to something like Disco Elysium or SubNautica?
>>3412 Its an Alexis Kennedy game so the bafflingly frustrating gameplay is intentional and you can find blogposts about how he deliberately made the gameplay irritating on purpose for narrative reasons which I feel missed the mark in this one (although I maintain the very slow pace of Sunless Sea was a major asset to the game that Skies lost). I get that he wanted to make it feel like you're a cultist in Lovecraftian fiction trying to piece together forbidden lore to figure out how to commune with your chosen god but for the most part it makes you start playing large chunks of the game on autopilot and losing the atmosphere while driving many people to just looking up how to achieve things. I have enjoyed the large amount of time I have spent with it but the signature AK frustration doesn't help this one. >I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever All of the principles are really useful, edge, winter and knock are probably the 3 most useful because they are all key components in late game summons including the incredibly useful Maid In the Mirror which can solo most of the expeditions in the game and is required for one of the apostle ascensions.
>>4166 Similar to Disco Elysium in that they are effectively books with RPG mechanics. Different to it in that its also a weirdly punishing roguelike with grind.
>>1510 >Sunless Skies heh, more like Punless Pies!

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!

Piracy Comrade 05/12/2020 (Tue) 05:54:50 No. 581 [Reply] [Last]
Piracy general thread. Share your sources and techniques. Here's a website I found recently which seems ok but as always, use are your own risk and use protection (adblock/script blockers). https://igg-games.com/ Not sure how clean it is but I detected no malware in my downloads (brows with adblock on of course). The website links to repackages of stuff produced by the major cracking scene groups (CODEX etc.) The files are hosted on free file upload sites like mega.nz and rapidgator. I have not used those sites in years so I can't say how safe and reliable they are. One shitty thing about their donwload links is they obscure the link behind some shitty ad infested link protector but I noticed the real URLs to the file are embedded in the URL of the link protector URL allowing you to bypass the ads. Large games are split into multiple parts and are not convenient to DL through these free file upload services due to wait times and download limits. But if you're pirating a small older game or indie game it's pretty easy. Example You want to DL this file, igg-games website has this link using bluemediafiles link protector (do not click link) http://bluemediafiles.com/creatinglinkspVVJ52BobqWRSUq8QydNlxYtPL1syhnl2VLm2FE0h4JMfQa8LP5RIPio92gInvzG57ExsOZK0tvq7oaMk36alzo7dBLnUdmoM3D?xurl=s://mega.nz/%23!1epgEYCK!gv04zz4LZNilKBUKwfG_XlLKOrYgWjg5VjS2djE1rlQ notice the URL for the real download link on mega.nz is inside the url simply use that portion of the url:

>>1703 Whoops, too late it's gone now, whatever that link was.
>>3222 I'm not a "Soulsborne" fan per se, but I played Dark Souls for the first time just over a year ago and it enthralled me. There are just so many exciting moments in that game - the hellkite dragon, getting chased by a Black Knight, walking into the Undead Parish and getting hit by a beam of light from out of nowhere, fighting gaping Gaping Dragon, crossing Blight Town and then finding out you can just waltz on over to Firelink Shrine, chilling in Dukes Archives etc. The environment designs are really inspired. Playing DS1 brought back those feelings that I used to get playing Ocarina of Time all those years ago. All other 'Souls-like' games seem uninspired in comparison. I unfortunately never got to play BB, but I did play Sekiro for a little bit and that just seems like a shit game to me.
>>3222 I like the gameplay loop. >>4598 >I did play Sekiro for a little bit The game really gets better once you get a handle on the combat.
