Have you guys ever played these two masterpieces? Literally no modern historical city building game can compete with these two, they are the most polished, well designed games I've ever seen. Caesar III which was already great, was succeeded by the much superior Pharaoh, which expanded on what Caesar had already done right, and made it even better, and was so succesful that even had an "DLC" with many more levels. Also, you guys can use this thread to share your custom maps aswell

>>487 Yeah but which torrents? I can't find any on the pirate bay.
What is so special about them? I feel like that genre is pretty limited in modern iterations anyways, and I'm not sure what counts. Like, the only series I can think of that still does that is Anno, and 1404 is pretty good.

Does anyone have any idea when the sequel to BOTW is coming out?
>>516 No, not even the developers.
Is Skyward Sword worth playing on emulator without a wii motionplus? I tried to get into BotW but I think it's kinda tedious, I'd rather play one of the old, braindead 3D zeldas and SS is the only one I haven't played yet. >>514 I grew up with 64 and it was the first videogame I beat all by myself, but I cannot go back to it, the camera controls require certain dedication to master and the worlds feel pretty soulless
>>518 The motion plus is what really makes SS gameplay special, especially certain boss fight, so I don't know how enjoyable the game would be without it. >I grew up with 64 and it was the first videogame I beat all by myself Speaking of first games, I remember the first game I completed by myself was Wario Land 1 when I was 5. I remember I would play it on rainy afternoons (because otherwise my mom would take me to the park) on my bed and she would bring me toasts with butter and I would smear grease all over my gameboy which made it more difficult to play. I took 1 whole year to complete it, I think the big sprites and the simple but memorable music made it mesmerizing for the little kid I was. Moreover, it's a slow paced platformer with emphasis on exploration so this might have helped me as a kid. I really miss the Wario Land games.
>>518 You 100% need the special snowflake controls for the game to work at all. They'll probably never be able to remaster it like they've done with the others as a result. >>514 Mario Sunshine holds up pretty well except if you're a completionist (fucking blue coins). The worldbuilding was pretty incredible in context, since most games like that had totally disconnected worlds and it had everything in one cohesive setting. They really squeezed everything they could out of it, and the touches like seeing the other locations in the skybox was great.

Dr. Venom from the Gradius series? I dunno, his actions made some pretty fun games.

Law = tankiddies Chaos = anarkiddies Neutral = ENLIGHTENED CENTRISM
Neutral is the only alignment that ever makes sense. If you go law, you effectively enter slavery - all in service of a God that will destroy the world anyway. If you go chaos, it will just lead to the wipe-out of humanity because humans are not as strong as demons. Those that survive mainly become part-demon at that. Going neutral allows you to avoid slavery and the destruction of humanity (until YHVH gets bored). It effectively gives us the world we have now - which we can change in much the same way as we try now.
>>523 As far as identifying the alignments with actual political ideologies, identifying Neutral with anarchists makes more sense considering it's focus on autonomous action and humanist ideals. While they explicitly call Chaos anarchist on SMT4A it's fairly obvious that it was originally intended to be a parallel for japanese fascism and in most games it takes the form of some kind of enlightened anprim darwinism, particularly in Strange Journey. The true centrists are The White. >>524 None of the Law-aligned options ever turn into straight-up slavery (from an economic point of view), but still, it really depends on the game. SMT4's version of Law, for example, doesn't end up requiring any enforcement of authority and resembles post-human communism more than anything else, directly changing 'human nature' itself to create a more peaceful, selfless and understanding society, where conflict is either non-existent or resolved without much issue. Obviously this doesn't really make sense from our particular point of view, looking more like soft slavery than anything else, but then again, what makes returning to a previous, less organized state of humanity more appealing, exactly? Ultimately the way the megaten universe works means that even this return is just a temporary pause to the apocalypse, and that only the physically mighty (in the most literal sense) get to set the rules. So you might as well make sure that the good you do is permanent.

>>546 Don't know if it tells more about me or about the music, but I can't help but seem to hear gachi remix sounds in that first video
I used to play stepmania
>>546 I don't know about the spyware, can you expand on that?
>>549 For ages the game was packaged with a screen recorder, that automatically ran every time you started a game and send the recording to the server, and an input recorder (though that one has been turned into a feature). Eventually people found out and the then current maintainer defended the decision as an anti-cheating tool. It was slated to be removed, but I never checked if they actually did take it out of the code.
>>548 Development has been revived: https://www.stepmania.com/forums/news/show/62885 I still play it on occasion. Basically the same old, though some of the new themes are very fancy.

Alright as someone who was a fucking idiot 3 years ago when I had payed all my bills and was just sitting around with money from my summer job and ended up buying a Vive just to stop myself from buying crack(I should have gone with the crack tbh) I got Alyx and here's what I have to say about it: It's meh. Like if this wasn't a VR game it would be burned at the fucking stake for being so horribly average: There's only 4 guns(Decided to take a note from Bethesda and that gun customization made cutting the arsenal in half was OK), combat is meh at best since enemies are all bullet sponges and you can't keep a track of where your body is because you know VR. Graphics are nice but it has the same loading system as Half-Life 1 in that you go 20 feet of some tunnel before changing levels. That being said it's probably the best damn VR game I've ever played due to the fact that it's a decent game, most VR games are either $20 tech demos that have one gimmick and then lose their charm after 30 minutes or are a regular game that has VR support, so having an actual full length game being built around VR and has really good controls as well is amazing. That's not praise for the game btw, it's just the utter state of the VR industry right now. No, Skyrim/Fallout 4 don't count
>>1438 The problem with VR is it's expensive bullshit and there's 40 different versions of it. It's also usually a closed system. IDK if Valve's version is open or not. They have a history of supporting DIY and tinkering with their products, but they've moved away from that sort of mentality toward grasping at every nickel and dime they can get, being a monopoly on digital game sales now.
Is Half-Life Alyx good enough that I should try and avoid spoilers for potentially multiple years before I play it? I keep hearing the ending is mind blowing, which makes me want to see it and avoid it at the same time. >>1432 I'm necroposting here, but one must-have mod for HL2 is MMod. Basically, it takes vanilla HL2 and makes the combat actually good with revamped AI and new weapon models and ballistics. Worth it just for the MMod shotgun, it's fucking amazing, hard to describe why but it's my favorite shotgun in an FPS.
>>1442 um sorry sweaty but half alyx life is the best VR game of all time and deserves all the GOTY awards and should be enshrined in a hall of fame you're just mad because alyx is half black so it makes you want to say the gaymer word have sex incel

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.

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.
