Welcome to /roulette/, Bunkerchan's roulette board! This board will be used for testing out new board ideas, based on the example of 7chan's /777/ board. The guidelines are as follows: -The countdown will begin as soon as the board is added to the top bar and will last for one month. -After a month, if the board has garnered enough posts on that month's topic, it will be made into a new board (barring any legitimate objections by the moderation team) and the threads will be moved there. Off-topic and spam posts will not count. Board ideas that do not meet this requirement will be shelved, with the possibility of being revisited later. -New board ideas can be suggested in the /gulag/ thread for /roulette/. This month's board topic is: /v/ - Vidya

If somebody wants to make a "Piracy general" I have a starting point. Personally, I can't be bothered to make a full proper post because I hate modern games too much. The way I see it... If you are going to engage in blatant consumerism, the least you can do is not enable rent seeking corporations to profit off imaginary property made by long gone workers decades ago. But you aren't really sticking it to the man if you are just sitting on your ass passively consuming entertainment, read some damn books too: https://libgen.is/ Downloads: https://archive.org/ https://cdromance.com/ https://www.emurom.net/us/roms.html https://the-eye.eu/public/rom/ https://edgeemu.net/ https://vimm.net/?p=vault https://www.emuparadise.me/ Need: https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/968sm6/a_script_for_easy_downloading_of_emuparadise_roms/ https://www.romulation.org/ More: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/ROM_%26_ISO_Sites

>>860 I have bad news for you anon. This is like telling medival pesantry not to eat break because it was harvested by serfs that had to pay taxes to the king. While i'm not against piracy, ofc, I still think all this crying about coomers having fun and not 100% of the time focusing on theory posting is myopic and a bit misguided.
>>863 I was suggesting doing both. All work and no play, however that goes. Otherwise I wouldn't have shared terabytes of games...
So what should the next test board, in your opinion, for /roulette/ be after /v/? I think a /theory/ board, focused on "effort" posts, with a high minimal character count for the OP and higher max message length, would be nice.

>>807 Anybody been playing the new AC? I was gonna pick it up, but I had to choose between it and DOOM, and I chose the latter instead.
>>844 Yeah, it's more "story based" in the sense that you are building an island settlement from scratch. It's comfy same as it always has been, but it's nothing groundbreaking really. Just adopting some of the more common mechanics out there now like crafting. Haven't played enough to see how much content the characters have (the trend has been to get shallower), but the random interactions are pretty neat. I've caught some of them singing or trying to catch bugs and all that. Pretty lame about the whole 1 island per console thing. Nintendo gets weird about DRM with stuff like this. They could figure it out. The game doesn't take up that much space to save your data. Same thing goes for split screen. It's weird that a second player is stuck following around player 1 if they're on the same system. >>809 Odyssey is really weird with how it distributes the moons. You get one moon for talking to the right NPC or paying coins in the shop and you get one moon for doing some obscure and difficult challenge. I would have made it so there's 2 different kinds of moons - noob ones and pro ones. Then to advance through the levels you need X noob ones and Y pro ones. Then instead of giving you 3 moons for beating the kingdom boss, you get the easiest pro moon. And then you can lock some content behind collecting Z pro moons so if you're up for a challenge instead of 100% you can just ignore the easy gimmicky ones and look for the challenge areas.
>>837 Mario Sunshine for nostalgia (the first 3d Mario I ever completed) and the ambiance and Mario Galaxy 1/2 for the gameplay and level design. Never been able to enjoy Mario 64 because for some reason it gives me really strong motion sickness.
>>837 Galaxy because I grew up with it and I actually like the motion controls

What is bunkerchan's opinion of Tom Nook from Animal Crossing? I've seen a lot of leftist argue that he deserves the bullet because he's a property owner, but others have said that in the game he gives away more than he could ever turn a profit from. Does this mean he gets a pass? I personally think Isabelle should be given critical support and usurp power from him at some point in time so that she could implement communal type measures after Nook industrializes the island using your labor, but it's almost as if the game is trying to say that Tom Nook is a necessary evil to get to modern communal living. The game doesn't really valorize his actions, either. He's a tanooki, and in Japanese folklore they are seen as tricksters by nature. In this way, he exists more as an anthropomorphized analog for the duplicity of the capitalist. Yet despite this, he also isn't as harsh as a modern capitalist might be. He doesn't tack on interest, have a set-in-stone timeline when you're supposed to pay him back, and won't ever repossess your home if you refuse to pay him. In this way, he represents more of the fantastical benevolent capitalist that Americans idealize. The only conclusion I've been able to come to is that the developers themselves are a bit confused about who Tom Nook really is.

>>872 if you want to pirate stuff and have no idea where to go,you just go to cs.rin.ru for steam games. I could send you to more bullshit websites(read:works but still fishy) that always works for me like igggames and skidrowreloaded,but they're bloated with ads,they don't need an account like cs.rin tho. I'm not at the level where I just go find the trackers somewhere,and piratebay just doesn't work where I live.

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

>>890 Where can I download these?
>>890 I played Caesar on my Amiga 500. Played lots of Pharaoh, too. Most recently less than a year ago, I download and play it from time to time. >>892 Torrents, of course.
Don't forget Emperor, in my opinion the best impression game gameplay wise. There's a relatively recent indie game, Heartlands, which is like an impression city builder in a fantasy setting, pic related.
>>897 Yeah but which torrents? I can't find any on the pirate bay.

why the FUCK is Oblivion/Morrowind so FUCKING DIFFICULT? Anonymous Gamer 04/02/2020 (Thu) 01:59:25 No. 878 [Reply] [Last]
Seriously, I made an unarmed khajiit adept in theft and other based shit. I did a bunch of theifs guild shit and did a bunch of fighters guild shit. I can finally kill enemies and I was finally feeling happy. I went to this cave near caldera that had a bunch of Dedra worshipers in it, I guess cause there was some random book of dedra in there. I made it to level 8 and I walk outside and I am immediantly bombsarded by a fucking clif rider and two fucking alits and now I am stuck in this fucking gay ass cave and have no idea what to do now. I tried running and I finally was making it back into a fucking city AND THEN THE FUCKING GAME CRASHED ==WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK MORROWIND? HOW THE FUCK DID ANYONE EVER PLACE THIS GOD DAMN SHIT!? I am fucking pissed beyond all belieF!!! rRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Are you a zoomer, outlander? Back in the day games did not autosave every two seconds to hold your hand so you had to get in the habit of quicksaving yourself.
>>878 I'm 30 faggot. I hard save ever 5 seconds. It was the autosaving that fucked everything up. Autosaving directly infront of a alits. Fucking insanity.
>>883 If you are in a truly gamefucked scenario, there's no shame in using the console commands. 'tgm' your way away from certain death and get back to playing normal as quickly as possible.
>>885 That still doesn't take care of the enemies being so strong... I actually managed to run all the way to a slave plantation and ended up getting chased bu teo altir and 3 cliffriders on the way LOL. Some argonian slave saved me by distracting them. It was a huge mess. But, really how do I deal with the difficulty and the shitty combat system? Also, how the hell does sneaking work? It's like i'm either caught or not.

>>886 I don't know what changes Morroblivion makes to the actual game balance, as in my experience Oblivion wasn't particularly hard. Unarmed combat is self-imposed challenge as well. The best advice I can give for immediate ease is just to turn the difficulty slider down. There's a myriad of mods on Oblivion nexus for changing the difficulty balance and combat system, but I don't know how any given one would interact with Morroblivion. Sneaking is just kind of wonky in general. By the time you're at sneak 100 you can basically be in plain sight without being caught. But at low skill level it kind of sucks, even in places where you think you should be stealthed, someone might 'hear' you. I just recommend crouching around a lot in general in any given place with NPCs. The way Oblivion works that should get the skill to level up fairly well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsjCoh6rFd0 I know about its factual inaccuracies. That it's just a copy of enemy at the gates. However let me explain how this was many kids first exposure to the ussr and what a great job it did communicating through gameplay what the war was. The soviet campaign takes place last in the game, after the british and american ones. Throughout the game you visit many locations and the mood is an adventurous one. Soldiers remark on celebrating with bottles of wines from french cellars, the beauty of the architecture besides the one or two artillery shelled buildings. And there's never any shortage in supplies. This quickly changes with the soviet campaign. From the start the design is something that looks like hell. There's no green grass, the sky isn't even blue. Every single building is destroyed by shelling. And what really let you know shit just got real, you don't even get a gun. They didn't teach ww2 history besides d-day and the atomic bomb, so to a child, this was formative. The creators did an unmatched job communicating the disparity between east and west fronts in the war. It was very clear all of a sudden that the soviets were fighting for their survival in a way the british and americans weren't. So bravo to call of duty, regardless of how shit it might have become later on, this game will always be one of the greatest achievements of the medium.

>>803 https://youtu.be/g_TmGiGb90k?t=18 Getting to plant the banner over the Reichstag in first person was always a magnificent moment.
>>814 >The original CoDs actually depicted the Soviets in a positive light. Eh, they depicted the USSR as the good guys but deeply flawed. Just like Enemy at the Gates which they ripped off. Although I will say that some of the things in that movie worked way better as a video game. Which is very different from how the US campaign is a shittier version of Band of Brothers. IDK if the British campaign was ripping anything off but I expect it was.
>>847 That's why I said positive light and not "good", even restraining themselves from going full "Stalin=Hitler, Democracy is the true virtue" is an accomplishment.
>>803 CoD 2 will be my favourite of all WWII video games tbh that and Medal of Honour: Frontlines. CoD 2 didn't really have any political comentary on Soviets, brits and americans other then "NAZI'S ARE SCUM!"

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?

>>801 The source code is pretty much the mop in the software development industry. So yeah.
>>851 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.
>>853 It depends on the type of source code. Game engines, software libraries, etc. can definitely be a means of production.
>>856 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.
>>862 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.
