>Shows the deep running corruption, inefficiencies and the shear oppression of Anglo-imperialism
>Working classes oppressed by the rich who have the luxury of time made material on their side
>Queen Victoria is a tyrannical monster, literally cannibalizing her servants and consuming highly illegal and body altering drugs Bonus Lyndon LaRouche points just for that
>Warhammer 40k type work-worlds staffed by wageslaves living in worse than slave-like conditions, exploited by their Dickensian overseers
>Communist, Anarchist and Esoteric-Anarchist revolutionaries portrayed mostly favorably, or at least more empathetically than other sides
>Reform is not enough and thus fails, only way away from the current situation is through drastic change to the current material conditions of the setting
>Trains. In space

Is this literally the most based game apart from really specialist kind ones like Kremlin Games in the last few years?

>>3412 Its an Alexis Kennedy game so the bafflingly frustrating gameplay is intentional and you can find blogposts about how he deliberately made the gameplay irritating on purpose for narrative reasons which I feel missed the mark in this one (although I maintain the very slow pace of Sunless Sea was a major asset to the game that Skies lost). I get that he wanted to make it feel like you're a cultist in Lovecraftian fiction trying to piece together forbidden lore to figure out how to commune with your chosen god but for the most part it makes you start playing large chunks of the game on autopilot and losing the atmosphere while driving many people to just looking up how to achieve things. I have enjoyed the large amount of time I have spent with it but the signature AK frustration doesn't help this one. >I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever All of the principles are really useful, edge, winter and knock are probably the 3 most useful because they are all key components in late game summons including the incredibly useful Maid In the Mirror which can solo most of the expeditions in the game and is required for one of the apostle ascensions.
>>4166 Similar to Disco Elysium in that they are effectively books with RPG mechanics. Different to it in that its also a weirdly punishing roguelike with grind.

Anyone here tried 'Lawless Lands'? It's a recently released Dark Fantasy RPG made by an Indie developer. Really fits mobile well if they could do it. Takes place in a pandemic ridden setting, full version released late last month. "Plunge into the Lawless Lands of Crossia, a once great kingdom where chaos slowly consumes more and more of the country. The cities have plummeted into poverty and crime, and the surrounding countryside is littered with famine and death. The army is close to collapse from an ever-lasting war and cannot stop the spread of the disorder. Hope is almost nonexistent, restoring order is believed to be futile, and panic lingers everywhere. Take on the role of a champion who rises from the ashes to end the suffering."

>>6057 >they critque big tech fine and all but they seemed unwilling to go further I don't think they could, even if they wanted to.
I like the idea of recruiting anyone from the city but thats about it
>>6057 > hacking the police to plant fake arrest warrants and getting people killled Uhhh, what?
>>6106 That's one of your hacker abilities, you can send a fake APB to go arrest whoever you want, and then there's an upgraded version so you can send in a heavily armed SWAT unit instead. If you use it on civilians they'll probably just get arrested but gang members will often enough fight back and then their buddies will join in which creates a giant horrific street battle (especially if either side calls in reinforcements).

So I got addicted to this damn game, and I think it has a lot of leftist potential. Your character is rooted in anti-capitalism, and there's even a corporation destroying the environnement and community life. Two NPCs bear scars from imperialism (Kent, a soldier) and capitalism (Shane, a depressive alcoholic working a 9-5). Besides from that there aren't many references to ideologies (except for the religion of Yoba and a book against the war). What would you think of a mod adding more political substance to Pelican Town? (for example an active faction against Joja, or NPC helping you rebuilding the CC). I don't like this idea that everyone in this town with so much free time gave up that quickly their community center, and you are the only one able to save it with your bare hands.

>>5341 Pretty sure that exists.
>>5349 Ok, I wanna marry a character that's already married. But I'm not having any luck finding a mod like that.
>>5348 Lynette is the best Rune Factory waifu anyways all the others suck. Convert her to anti-imperialism through the power of ur dick. Her empire is literally called the Sechs Empire lmao she's so deprived.

I can't quite figure out if it's more profitable in the long term to try and fill barns up with pigs as fast as possible or get the bus repaired and open up the oasis shop as fast as possible in order to spam starfruit over the summer. What are anon's thoughts on this matter?

Does anyone else play this cesspool of suffering and misery? I think I just want to see the promised grand new update and then abandon this game for good. Picrelated another normal battle in ground forces.

>>5935 It really is a more widespread feeling than we even like to admit ourselves. I too keep leaving for months and went back again few days ago. It just makes you miserable with little payoff.
>>5934 >>5935 Ehem... well that was illuminating. Thanks for the comprehensive reply
Well, I've promised myself that if I won't get an enjoyable match in 3 games on a KV-1 (ZiS-5) i'm uninstalling. What do you know, gg. Some things need to be let go for good.
How similar is it to World of Tanks? I played that piece of shit for way more than I ever needed. Grinded all the way to the IS-3 until calling it quit. always hoping that, perhaps, the next tank will be in any way fun to play, but they never were. The guy who thought it was fun to fight tanks 2 tiers higher then yours needs to be shot. Hilariously the only tank I found somewhat fun was the Bong tier 3 Valentine. Super accurate, fast firing low damage rounds are great.
>>6100 It doesn't have an hp system, instead it's closer to reality with crew, modules like engine, ammo racks, transmission etc which have their own durability and so long as a shell pierces the armor any tank can be one shot. It doesn't have the accuracy circle or arty. But the addiction process and frustration are pretty much the same, so it's not worth it if you hate the general system of wot. I guess there just can't be a good tank game.

isn't it a huge plot hole that nanobots can heal radiation damage? Radiation would disable electronics. From a gameplay perspective, having an exception would be interesting as well.
See the Deathbattle fight with Solid Snake, they explain why EMPs and other radiation wouldn't affect internal nanobots.

Is it so fucking hard to just post this in the existing thread? >>1955
I won't lie, there is a part of me that really wants for Cyberpunk to turn out shit, or worse - mediocre. Mainly because fuck capital G Gamers and fuck the notion that there are good-guy vidya company. Also it would be sweet for me personally, as CDPR fucked up Gwent with the Homecoming patch.
*wearing gray facepaint* DON'T CARE, STILL BUYING CYBERPUNK 2077!!

Anybody played it yet? Is it even a little based? It's about fucking with the nazis from behind the lines during the invasion on the eastern front, as far as I know

>>5902 Looks like a modernized Commandos clone. Not that it is bad. While I never liked that game series, I'd imagine there are quite a few fans of it that have been waiting for something like this. Last game similar to this that I recall was probably around 10 years ago and was set in Vietnam.
I really like the artstyle.
Taganay has a good opinion of it, made review recently so it's pretty good.
>>5900 It's supposed to have the correct story narrative, but I don't like the gameplay: I'd prefer TBS of some sort.
