what vidya does bunkerchan like

I'm actually a bit too much of a brainlet to play it. I've got a save where i haven't used cheats once, but man. I can barely hit giant rats with my sword, and the skeletons kill me quick. My tactic for fighting thus far has been using destruction magic since it hits as long as you successfully cast it, and i just run into a place then run back out once i run out of magicka and recharge. I might use cheats just to increase my sword and bow skills and carry weight at some point just to finish the game.

Im not though
Slog through 8 hours of gameplay and then you'll understand. Also abuse the game where possible. Current character is using fully enchanted Daedric Armor with Master Robes with 200 of each stat due to boosting and enchantments and can jump across the entire map in a single step and uses a Daedric spear that has an enchantment from a literal god so that it immediatly boosts my strength to 400 000 and hits the enemy so hard that it breaks after a single hit. Also I have permanent chameleon on so enemies can never physically see me so I run past them at 90 km/h with my 247 acrobats skill.

I can barely steal from shopkeepers without reloading saves several times just so they won't see me taking their shit.
Don't steal from shopkeeps, they barely have any money on them and dear god are the guards/priests(you'll find out why) tough. Shops sell jack shit anyways and have no money, you'll find the best stuff in dungeons, I'd say go on the wiki and look at the map for all the daedric weapons and armor and go collect them, all the enemies will be leveled but the items will not be so you can get max gear at level 10 (except the chest piece which is in tribunal) and sell everything, SELL EVERYTHING cause you won't need it trust me. You need to steal Daedric greaves though which are in a farmhouse near the starting location, you can find a Gnsis there'll be a small lake with a lady asking for you to get her amulet, look around carefully and there'll be cloaked enemies, kill them and the lady steal their enchanted amulets which have chameleon on them, go back to the farm house, use the amulet, and steal it no problem.

The only shopkeep you'll need is in Caldera, he's in the attic of the abandoned house and has 5000 gold and restocks every 2 days and he buys stuff at max price.

watch a guide on potion and spell making and you can boost your intelligence to over 100 for 1 second, pause the game, create another potion(which is governed by intelligence), and repeat and you can boost yourself to godhood.
Ok so this be my guide to get buff as shit (quick) in morrowind and basically make yourself strong enough to clear most of the early story / side quests and shit without breaking a sweat

>Build Character however you want
>Steal everything that isnt nailed down in the census office including the fancy silver platter behind the clerk worth 500 septims (Guard will see you but drop it before he talks to you and you can pick it up after without it being a crime)
>Steal everything in Balmora that also isnt nailed down and wont get you arrested (Crates outside peoples houses)
>Snuggle in Caius's bed for one hour at a time until a dark brotherhood assassin shows up
>Steal his armour and shit after you (Finally) manage to kill him
>Get caius to unlock the blades trainers (Will train every skill in game at least up to a decent level for cheap to boot!)
>Join the mages guild so you can go to Caldera quick and EZ
>Sell the armour and any other shit you can to the Gremlin merchant in the old mansion
>Steal the master alchemists set from the Caldera mage guild
>Do the first tutorial quests (Kill rat for the fighter's guild / Kill the thieves in the dwemer ruin and STEAL. EVERY. COIN. AND GEM. THAT. ISNT. NAILED. DOWN)
>Keep getting valuable shit to sell to the gremlin in caldera until you have about 5k gold maybe 10k (if you spam sleeping till another assassin spawns) remember the gremlin resets to having 5k seller cash every in game day so just sleep in the inn opposite his house
This is where that alchemy set comes in if you havent already gotten it
>Buy 200 of two ingredients that have "Fortify intelligence" as their primary attribute but DONT make anything yet
>Buy 200 of two ingredients that have "restore fatigue" as their primary attribute but dont make anything yet
You wont be able to carry all that shit so put it all in some OUTSIDE crates in Balmora or something
>Make 200~ fortify Int potions and drink all of them. this should push you're Intelligence into the high triple or even quadruple digits
>Make 200~ restore fatigue potions each of which will be Uber-Powerful because of how high you're intelligence was when making them

I found that about one stack of these super fatigue potions was worth about 5000~ septims from the gremlin merchant so go back to Caldera and spend a few days selling a few stacks to him again and...Well youve got enough cash now that you can buy virtually any weapon and armour you want / need and have enough cash to pay the blades to train you in whatever you're maining in basically forever
Skyrim factions

>Civil war
If you join a side, the Empire is the least retarded one. Stormcloaks are basically MAGAtards, and their war is going to make the empire more vulnerable to the Thalmor, which are the bigger imperial threat. If you support anybody it needs to be critical support for the Empire as national liberation so the elves don't conquer the humans. The most based option however is to join neither side. The edgelord option is to join the Empire to pwn the Stormcloaks and then assassinating the Emperor, which would plunge Skyrim into even more chaos and effectively ensure Thalmor domination.
They're mercs but they tend to go for soft targets, and they have overwhelming force on their side compared to normal citizens. They're cops.
>Thieves Guild
The only people with a political theory to speak of, but they go full cynic/nihilst with it. Basically vulgar egoists. The illegalism is largely justified, but they don't bother to try really changing things when they definitely have the pull to do so.
>Dark Brotherhood
They're serial killers crossed with doomsday cultists. The only sane option is to destroy them, and killing Grelod to start the quest is so 100% justified that you will catch no shit from it from anybody in the entire game. If you play the game without destroying them, you are a failure at being a hero to the people of Skyrim.
>College of Winterhold
The main plot is pretty lame 2deep4u shit, but collecting lost books for Urag could actually make a difference to the world by holding back the decay inherent to the TES universe.
Since capitalists are metaphorically vampires, and vampires function a lot like porkies, the Dawnguard are automatically based for fighting them. Possibly the closest to genuine pure heroes in the entire TES lore. The Vigilants of Stendarr are too autistic about opposing daedra in contrast.
>Miraak's cult
Dragonborn are automatically more or less on each others' level, so Miraak gets some credit for sending the cultists to kill you the moment he discovers you (assuming you visit the Greybeards right off). Bethesda could have put a little effort into the quest depending on your progress in the rest of the game. Maybe if you'd already beat Alduin and slain the dragon priests and such, Miraak might think twice about sending some cultists to merk you and then waiting for you to trample through Apocrypha before coming to merk him back. Pretty pathetic for such a dragonborn who's lived for ages in the realm of forbidden knowledge.
>Bard College
Pretty cool guys, regularly burn the effigy of a king. They also have a poem that each of them contributes to in turn as part of their career which is pretty commie.
Absolute trash, eat shit and die. Worse than the Dark Brotherhood. Useless cunts to the max. They just want a strongman to tell them what to do, but when they finally get you they do nothing but fuck with you, and worst of all they are central to the main plot, so you have to put up with their shit if you want to save the world. They have little to offer but insist on inserting themselves and extorting the hero into making them relevant, and they play LARPy spy games when the Dragonborn could just roll the Thalmor Embassy or sneak in alone. They are pure adventurist thrill seekers claiming to be true to your cause but constantly getting in the way. Demanding you kill Paarthurnax is the apotheosis of their autism. At least you have the option to recruit people who aren't shit so that canonically you can oust the original turds and fix the organization if you want.
>go full magic, no armor, stick spec, and every magic type spec
>immediately go to the first big town and join the magic club
This is where I started having fun
>find a flight spell
>every engagement with enemies is now me flying around throwing fireballs and dropping summoned monsters on their asses
>this strategy beats beefy badasses who would otherwise squash me easily
>have a fucking blast
I also later made a ring that charges my stamina slightly faster than running depletes it so I never had to worry about that shit again.

the only thing worth looking up is where the shoes that make you run super fast are
Yeah fuck the blades for forcing you to kill paarthurnax, but that was mostly the fault of the woman, what's-her-face.
Forgot to mention I also got a Daedric tower shield that replenishes my health faster than any enemy in the game can deplete it. CHIM=Achieved.
Also I should note that because I always wacked enemies with my blunt stick while they were surrounded by summoned goons anyways I ended up with that stat maxed by then end without realizing it. Also because my armor stats didnt really matter I just wore whatever gave the best boosts atm so by the end I was a magic hammer wielding armor warrior mage which is both awesome as well as an example of how the game systems are more for fun than strict balancing.

Fucking damn morrowind is awesome.

i'm disappointed, still nobody roleplaying as communist guerilla
oh great are we heaving the e-thot debate again
I don't have the money to build a nasa-tier gaming rig, my dude.
kek, now you reminded me of that time that ITV used arma 2 footage in a 'documentary'


the best i get is like 30 fps when nothing's happening, at least in multiplayer with little mod content
mostly it's the fault of either mods, bad servers and too high expectations
even expensive rigs can often not get past 30 fps
no idea what it is but heard it's because the current arma engine is ancient and poorly adjusted for modern hardware
that shit was hilarious
i already had people react to arma screenshots and footage think that it's real, and that's without mods
can't wait for what they cook up next
which will probably be complete dogshit now that they went with an alien story setting with the last DLC, maybe prettier graphics
the new engine they're going with for the next arma release is already used for current Day Z Standalone, is it any better with performance?
>no idea what it is but heard it's because the current arma engine is ancient and poorly adjusted for modern hardware
That's usually the reason for performance problems like that.

There was just a thing like this with I think CBS News? But it wasn't vidya footage. It was footage of some rich people playing with guns at the range, and they passed it off as war footage.
the empire has always been a force for good in the land

but it doesn't matter because skyrim is a piece of shit
same anon. currently however my PC is broke. just dropped a few hundred on some new parts im hoping will fix it but i am a brainlet and fixing it is a chore

There's probably some other ones I can't think of at the moment.
Right now I'm working my way through the Rance games. I also enjoy playing Counter-Strike and old-school RPGs.
recently I've been playing Noita
Anybody play Champions Online
Did you finish the fallout games yet? What do you think of them?
Mostly playing League of Legends and Red Dead 2 right now. I also like R6 Siege and CK2.
Same that and Caves Of Qud, Multiwinia, Prison Architect (insert Foucault joke), and the occasional game of FEAR and various Paradox grand strategy games
Crusader Kings is great
Indie games are killing it right now if you look in the right places. Oh and since I like roguelikes I should do a game of Unreal World again sometime soon
Is city skylines the best city planner or is there better?
>>4787 I would say it's mainly a traffic manager as almost everything is road transported. I never could get my heavy industry areas to have decent traffic flow.
>>4792 Is it worth it thou?
>>4794 Yes.
/leftypol/ has a thread on Disco Elysium right now. Is it good? >>>/leftypol/161062
God I love Deus Ex 1. It’s amazing
>>4829 Yes
OpenTTD is a great game and it is free (in both senses of the word)
Been getting into games again, been playing an old version of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, and Doom2. I want to get into Freeciv, but I remember getting frustrated by the fact that I couldn't beat one enemy on easiest difficulty no matter what I did.
>>1208 >>1213 I'm having a real hard time getting into fantasy, know any good sci fi or modernist RPGs?
>>215 This guy has the right idea, engie games are the shit. I mostly play Stalker Anomaly 1.5 and Kenshi right now. Both games waste way too much time.
>>1213 >cycles of guilt >Not play EYE Divine Cybermancy Come on now. >>1208 It’s on the weird border of class conscious leftist concepts and “da jooos!!!”-tier /pol/ bait with the (((gnomes))) conspiracy. The whole subplot of half-ogres and gnomes rape dungeon and the good/evil alignment are pretty dumb.
>>6147 EYE is so fucking good in spite of all its jank. I never did manage to get co-op to work though, apparently the game is finicky and just port forwarding isn't enough.
>>6149 It’s a third party Source game so of course it’s gonna be janky. Just like the equally good Dark Messiah. Too bad nowadays Streum On is too busy making 40k trash, and Arkane got stuck with Zenimax (which made both the founder and the voice actor for the Outsider left).

bst gaym evr
>>6162 I think Streum On only ever wanted to make 40K games based on how much EYE is inspired by 40K. It's a shame because EYE is the only game that makes cybernetics as overpowered and fun as they should be, in every other cyberpunk game you're not all that much more powerful than a normal human.
