based, I liked undertale and quite enjoyed deltarune. the way that deltarune was set up was very peculiar to me, like the characters in the world were created by someone in the Undertale universe with a limited perception of who they really were. Undyne and Alphys are both what they publicly appear to be (a law enforcer and a big ol' nerd, respectfully) but both of them are very self-serious, like how you would expect them to act when they were on the job. You didn't get Undyne's weird tendencies or all of Alphys' dumb anime garbage and tendency to ship stuff. Same with Toriel and Asgore, you know they are apart but there is a lack of nuance as to why their relationship fell apart, or the dynamic they still have with each other interpersonally. I somewhat wonder if the Deltarune world is like, a simulation of the Undertale world for some kind of test. on a more technical note though, the spritework of DT has done a lot better than UT. I hope we get more neat animation in the final release of DT though, I feel like Kris is a lot more of a separate character than Frisk was ever meant to be, and so they should have a lot more flair to their actions and movement to establish that.

Undertale sucks because it's just incredibly linear and only mentally ill faggots still obsess over it. As for Deltarune, you have to clear your mind and remember that it's the game that Toby Fox intended to make, but he thought that Kris killing Toriel would've made an already dark game even more depressing, so he made an entirely different game around the idea of not having to kill those lovable characters and it turned out to be a smash hit. You could say that the story of Toby "Radiation" Fox is inspiring with him being able to weeb out in Japan, meet some of his inspirations, and see his own game on a Nintendo console, but I think it's all a fluke.
>>133 >Undertale sucks because it's just incredibly linear by that logic skyrim was the best game ever linearity isn't bad especially in a story driven game where it is more about conveying a message and experiencing characters - it is a lot harder to write good characters in a world you can constantly change, which is why most open ended RPGs have characters that rarely change perspectives or grow as people.
>>134 >story driven game Shit, by definition.
>>135 <what is Disco Elysium? Planescape Torment? I get that it's better to watch a movie or read a book, but interaction can add a lot to storytelling.

I feel like the industry push towards micro transactions and away from fully developed product is a way to hinder piracy online. I just download skyrim and the sims totally for free with no issues, but, I tried to download Starcraft II and It's a fucking mammoth of a task to get it to work properly with out an internet connect. How can we even go about pirating games that require online play or whatever nonsense they are trying to peddle to make virtually free and perfect commodities cost money,? Does anyone else feel this way?

>>342 Source code is not MOP but the end product itself. Means of production is, like, computers, internet, etc etc etc. The internet is actually more the perfect commodity Marx talked about. It's virtually free (in theory) and can do basically whatever we want.
>>343 It depends on the type of source code. Game engines, software libraries, etc. can definitely be a means of production.
>>344 I guess that's true. I am more of a code monkey rather than a developer for video games, but, I still think that ultimantly personal computers are what is and should be classified as a means of production. Ultimately, after out time has come, the distinction will cease to exist, as, all personal computers will remain person computers.
>>345 Think of it this way: Who owns Unreal Engine? The source maybe be out there, but commercial developers cannot make use of it without paying rent to Epic Games.

>>339 >hinder piracy The push to fight piracy is itself driven by the same motive as the stubbornness with which even limited refunds were granted, the abolition of demos, the fight against used games, the industry's tempestuous relationship with streamers/LPs, and the shilling of preorders: If people can try your game, they're less likely to buy trash.

I liked tinkering around with SimLife, but I never really understood the appeal of most Sim "games" to be honest. The goals (and thus the actual "game" structure) were often paper thin.
>>351 SimLife and SimEarth weren't "games" in any meaningful sense. The purpose was to play god and covered the world in flying molluscs or keep spamming natural disasters or whatever. The other games (SimCity, SimAnt, SimFarm, etc) actually put you in the world to some extent, so you had a sort of guidance.

>>383 Play warband
>>385 tbh vlandia is based around the post rome barbarian led kingdoms who had knights (not the meidival ones just nobles riding horses with some chainmale armor) So i was just fucking with you Althouhg those mask/helmet things they have make no sense
>>371 Empire because fuck nationalism.
So, I started my own kingdom, taking up a comfy corner of the Western Empire, but the nobles keep slipping out of my dungeon like it was made of paper. I was thinking about trying to play it cool and soft and keep some kind of diplomacy open between my Commonwealth Republic and other kingdoms, but I guess THIS IS A REVOLUTION NOW KILL ALL NOBLES OR SELL THEM TO SLAVERY It can't be helped. They just keep popping up with ever larger annoying bands of peasants if they escape or I let them go, which is a slow grind and attrition I can't afford. Sorry. FUCKING DIE!

Is anyone playing Kards? It's a new Hearthstone clone about WW2.
Kards is absolute shit. I played for 2 hours when it was in alpha before it even released on Steam and the monetization model is so fucking greedy it's insane. You had to win like 15 matches or something just to get a single card pack. Gwent is better.

Daggerfall Unity only takes 1 minute to install and mods are easy. Follow the video instructions. The files needed are here: Game files: https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B0i8ZocaUWLGWHc1WlF3dHNUNTQ Daggerfall Unity: https://www.dfworkshop.net/projects/daggerfall-unity/live-builds/ Recommend these videos for info on mods: https://youtu.be/GyElwUjh3og https://youtu.be/yINjviYSO3s Mods are easy to install. All you have to do for most of the mods is go through to DaggerfallUnity_Data > StreamingAssets > Mods -- dump the dfmod files in the mod folder... But certain mods will have questpacks and instructions. You place the questpacks in a questpack folder and sometimes another folder depending on the mod. Recommended Mods:

>>392 You can play a rogue/thief like character. Those usually have critical strike still in primary along with dodging w/ short blades. And backstab somewhere in major. Illusion and mysticism might also work well with that build.
>>389 Where can I find daggerfall mods?
I was unaware this game is still as popular as it is.

So, I am at the part of the game where you have to go talk to the royals of wayrest && daggerfall and shit, but, they all hate me cause I am an argonian and I only made Royals hate the shit out of me cause I am a larping communist retard. What do? Who the fuck am I actually supposed to talk to because the kings and queens don't actually give me information. The queen of daggerfall has a quest for me, but, I can't do it yet until I am a higher level. Do I just have to keep doing quests for the nobles? Also, how do I recognize these fuckers?

Spanish civil war videogames Anonymous Gamer 03/31/2020 (Tue) 17:15:31 No. 405 [Reply] [Last]
I've noticed a lack of Spanish civil war games, especially shooters. The thing is that there exist many mods for popular games about it, so there is an active comunity looking for one.

Why aren’t there any American Civil War video games?
>>410 there's even a rather good looking shooter one existing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dXcHUcpTM0
Latest HoI4 DLC has a lot of Spanish Civil War content, including tankie, trot and anarcho-syndicalist paths.
>>405 Some years ago there was a Spanish-made RTS named "Sombras de la Guerra", but it sucked ass. There's a COD2 mod, but the only big games I know have official SCW content are Panzer General 2 and Hearts of Iron. >>410 There are a ton, but most are PC strategy games.
