>>6060 Tried it. Amazing start as a communist. Sure, your relationship with all factions is destroyed, but just over a few months I stacked up a ton of credits without even leaving Askonia. Turns out making supply runs for space North Korea is extremely profitable. And hey, since everyone hates me, I don't even get the choice to use the "legal" 30% tariff market. I'm already level 15 from profitable trades.
So talking about the lore of the game, did Ludd cause the collapse? I found a listening post with a log of an old Domain prisoner list, one of whom was a cult leader with a strong "anti-tech, anti-science and anti-Domain" sentiment. Wouldn't be surprised if he was somehow involved with blowing up the gates. Or maybe he just used the collapse as an opportunity to start his cult on a civilizational level and I just read too deep into it.
>>6201 its unlikely, the collapse was probably just a somewhat random event that Ludd just took advantage of.
So I've assembled a huge space jihad fleet, barely manage to scrape a win against REDACTED fleets with a radiant, nevermind two, and couldn't even scratch the REDACTED base. Any recommended mods?
>>6214 What kind of ships are you using? I am still new to the game (started after this thread), but from my experiance you want to have a shit ton of carriers. Also are you colonising? It's basically impossible to field a proper fleet without it in my experiance.

What are your opinions?

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1100284147 pretty good ethics mod that is quite well balanced in my opinion, also contains the original ethics so you don't have to worry too much allows for TRUE SPACE COMMUNISM
>>6139 >What are your opinions? The only good thing about stellaris is that it conforms to the leftist worldview (ironically, porky Collectivism equals Authoritarianism versus Individualism equals Freedom equals Entrepreneurship was overtime changed to Freedom equals Egalitarianism and Communism, Private business equals oligarchy) The game, however, was broken by later patches. It's overcomplicated and requires tedious routine, but also doesn't have any variance at all. It's perfectly balanced, but due to being overcomplicated and drawnout doesn't work out for multiplayer.
>>6161 >>6162 Now now, let's not get into extremes. The Xeno is made to be oppressed and exploited, same as the native population, to fuel the war machine.
>>6194 >Freedom equals Entrepreneurship was overtime changed to Freedom equals Egalitarianism and Communism, Private business equals oligarchy) I mean kinda but not really, a very common egalitarian empire type is 'democratic crusader' which is basically just America/NATO, there's nothing to say that egalitarian nations have to be commie, just that they can't be full hyperfascist >>6195 Fool. The xeno is to be integrated into our interstellar utopian state, and their best genetic qualities added to our own.
>>6196 >Democratic crusader bad Well I am sorry hippy doodle, but communal parity has to be spread from the barrel of a gun. >>6160 To add: The Khan sounds cool, but... He croaks way too soon to his assassin sex slave gf, so he only ends up a threat for like a quarter of the Galaxy The War in Heaven is cool, but... The rest of the game past midgame bores me so much that I literally never seen it. Galactic market sounds cool, but... Its fucking sterile and carries zero weight for the actual gameplay, as its just a seperate tab where you can buy or sell limitless amounts of goods. Traderoutes? Piracy? Smuggling? Nah, fuck that shit, no need. The L sector or whatever its called is a cool idea, but... Its just three prescripted outcomes of what is inside. Curators are a cool idea, but... They are just a guaranteed thing that will be a part of all your games and there is no real poin to them outside of "dump credits to gain x modifier".

If you could have any setting in a TW game, what would it be? Personally I'd love a Russian Civil War one.
>>4778 Anything about relatively modern warfare wouldn't fly in a game like this, FOTS was already horrific in the mixed arms warfare, shelling, etc and also quite small for the scale of modern war. Drakengard 1 could be cool, if far fetched. Also, ancient mesopotamian, how about that? But not shitty like Troy. For real, bronze age warfare but either completely high fantasy mythological, or totally gritty and realistic. Also, Volound keeps destroying. Now about missile combat. https://youtu.be/GEvYxZfwrQg
I just want a game set in the postclassical mesoamerican era with a spanish conquest setting, so I can wipe the floor with the spanish conquistadors as the aztecs:^).
>>4785 You can do that in medieval 2

What is up with /v/'s constant threads about smash ultimate Comrade 07/07/2020 (Tue) 13:28:18 No. 2214 [Reply]
I honestly do not get their obsession with what character will get into smash.
8 posts omitted.
It's a popular video game and people like to see what character gets in. Where's the confusion?
>>2222 "/v/" is derogatory at this point so either 4chan's /v/ or its dozen spinoffs with the same retarded culture.
I don't get why people are angry the character from that game for little kids is going to get added to a game for little kids with a bunch of characters from other games for little kids.
It’s a good game and anons have nothing better to do since Nintendo doesn’t want to fix their joycons drifting so starting drama is the next best thing
>>2214 the game's roster has become a huge part of the game's marketing. also, there are only 4 more characters left to be revealed so people are worried that their most wanted won't get in when the dlc ends. >>5221 he's pretty good online

>>5063 Yeah it's true, but I got lucky I think. Are you a more experienced player? I'm not very far into the story. Is the battle pass worth it? How bad is the resin issue?
>>5064 I'm adventure level 28 going on 29 now. Progression slows a lot; I'd been binging the game pretty hard since I'm NEET right now, but I had to slow because I can't go faster without paying at this point. I will not pay a dime; I will not buy the pass, so I can't attest to it being worthwhile; it's ultimately your choice, but I wouldn't advise it because it doesn't seem wholly necessary unless you really wanna power through the game. Anyhow, I take issue with the whole resin thing, but ultimately the fact that the amount of stuff I can do on any given day is limited has promoted a healthier lifestyle for me. I can't just keep binging the game straight through to the cruel and bitter end because it prevents me from doing so, so I just hop on and do my commissions and the domains if they got what I need and leave it at that; it's fun enough that way.
>>5066 Hm guess I'll save my financial support for when they put out cosmetics. I don't want to power through the game, I want to just enjoy the slow burn.
Tried it. Luckly my attention span is so short I lost interest after the first session
The Liyue part just made me a little bit sad. Outside of the rich city, there are abandoned mines, villages with only elders and children. It strikes too hard, is this really espacism or just social commentary under the guise of isekai?

I've seen some people who claim this game has very revolutionary messages and even promotes anarchism but it just seems like a really half baked and generic "rebel against authority" message. Thoughts?

>>5076 Love Persona 3. Took the FeMC pill and didn't regret it one bit. Eternal Punishment is next. I've seen somewhat mixed reactions online but the good things I've heard have got me intrigued. >>5023 >>5078 Ok, mainline SMT it is. Is Nocturne a good place to start? I tried one of the DS ones when I was like 16 but it was too hard for me. Also wasn't too into/good at JRPGs at that point yet so idk, maybe it was just a me thing.
Haru's getting the guillotine, the floof is going into a basket.
>>5023 >They don't have or slice of life bullshit with teenagers taken straight out of your run of the mill romcom anime or galge. But that's unironically the best part. The turn based RPG is the lamest part of the game.
>>5187 Far too late on this but yeah, Nocturne is probably the best place to start. It is hard, definitely harder than 4, but nothing too impossible or demanding.
>>6094 I started P3 with this mindset but through the middle part I just kept booting the emulator on my free time only to dungeon crawl on Tartarus. The RPG part is weirdly compelling to me despite being pretty barebones. I played Nocturne after P3 and was blown away, now THAT'S a fun RPG. I still like P3's plot a lot >>6147 Is it? I beat Nocturne and went for the TDE on my first playthrough, it was kinda challenging but not really hard imo. On 4 I got filtered almost immediately by Naraku.

Y'all know that Dolphin has pretty good netplay, right? Imagine, playing Bloody Roar with the fans you never had in childhood...

>>5962 played the shit out of 99 as kid, pretty good from what I remember XIII was really combo heavy and coming from SFIV after a long fightan break was tough since kof is a lot more strict with inputs, it was for the better though XIV on the other hand feels actually dumber than Jive in a lot of ways

So Big Navi is (according to AMD's own benchmarks) better than current gen RTX in most games, uses less power and costs less (but still almost 1000 bucks).

Honestly I'm only interested in the low/medium range. That and the hope that this will lower the price of previous gens. My 950 is starting to show the sign of time, plus lately the nvidia drivers for linux are shit
(28.80 KB 640x424 torvaldsnvidia-640x424.jpg)
>>6111 >lately the nvidia drivers for linux are shit Haven't they always been? I always see novideo giving Linux users (and developers) a headache, and to top it off their drivers are proprietary, which is BIG CRINGE if you ask me.
>>6120 I've actually been having serious issues with Nvidia on my Linux due to driver madness. Between the lack of hw stock and this fuckery I am leaning extremely heavily towards AMD gpu for my new build (running a 10yo box rn). I just hope their drivers are up to snuff and that they actually have stock.
>>6156 I'm also stuck with nvidia on Linux (I'd still dual linux boot with amd anyway because I'm too lazy to sandbox everything properly) and afaik amd drivers are as good if not better than on winblows. Last I checked the FineWine™ meme was real and they took some time to become really good, though even a valve employee publicly shamed nvidia a few months ago and recommended amd over them for linux use (https://twitter.com/dan_ginsburg/status/1261403868279140353)
