Really similar to the Communist era Russian literature I snort up my nose, so I'm assuming it's accurate.
The short film that went with this was real cool IMO.
Let’s see what you get for “Following the orders of the oppressive communist state. >Easily enough pay and resources to feed your family as long as your good at home economics. >Quick and stable increase in standard of living (Even without being a corrupt offical you can eventually purchase new apartments and finally a home for your family. >Absolute job security as long as you don’t catastrophically fuck up. Meanwhile if you become a corrupt offical or a terrorist you take a bunch of bribes from drug dealers and commit several terror attacks before fleeing the country
>>5361 Unironically true for real life USSR TBH
>>5361 Kinda bullshit on the "if you don't do good enough you starve" though. They should have a flat living wage with bigger bonuses based on your performance. The only cases where starvation like in the DPRK never happen to state officials.

Most accurate sum-up of real life in terms of alignment system comparison? Comrade 10/18/2020 (Sun) 07:36:02 No. 5352 [Reply]
Since the industrial revolution 'Lawful Evil' has become far more common than 'Neutral Evil'. Although today it exists more in the form of crime gangs, just like how bandits were often that way back then. 'Lawful Good' and 'Chaotic Evil' are equally rare alignments to each other. The 'good guys vs villains' stuff is often more in the form of 'chaotic good', chaotic neutral (sometimes) and 'neutral good' going up against 'lawful evil'. If you designed a fantasy game that mirrors real life in 'alignment distribution' this is how it would look. If a character like Mehrunes Dagon or Zamorak were to show up in the real world through some sort of 'inter-reality travel' he would be seen as a hero. Planet Earth from now to the 1990s would certainly be the most ideal setting.
Correction to last sentence, or a fictional setting inspired by real life in that time period*

can the alignment system be compared to real life politics?
It's much better than D&D's, at least.
>>5320 Is it really though?
>>5331 I find it a lot less cartoonish than D&D alignments.
>>5332 Maybe because I'm not the most familiar with both of them but they both seem so incredible simplistic that they basically identical to me.
>>5318 Yes, most ranging to nearly all bad guys or villains in real life are 'Lawful Evil'. 'Neutral Evil' and possibly 'chaotic evil' irl villains were common in pre-industrial times. 'Neutral evil' applies more to some 'crime gangs' more. 'Lawful good' is very rare and only. Chaotic or neutral good are the most common forms of 'good guys'.

>>5304 >Original Animation Is there a Conker cartoon or something?
>>5305 There was some stuff people made using the Conker Models and various other stuff to make improvised Conker cartoons. I recall something about him hunting a shark in parody of Jaws in one episode. It was funny, if clunky.
>>5297 I coomed to his sister/gf and the sunflower ngl
I played it on emulator when I was a kid and I found the gore disturbing lol still do a bit to this day, probably because those N64 models can look off-putting at times I don't remember much else about it other than my obsession with the Great Mighty Poo. I preferred Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie. I should probably play it again and finish it this time.
Always felt like a ripoff of Crash Bandicoot TBH

Khaled and Zakhaez did nothing wrong
>>5156 Slaughtering hundreds of civilians at an airport may have been wrong
>>5157 Wrong game lol you're thinking of Makarov
>>5156 Al-Asad was morally in the right. He took power by overthrowing the corrupt western backed President who was selling his nation's resources without helping his citizenry. American then suddenly invades and pretty much destroys every city in his country. When they're about to capture the capital city the US forces get rightfully nuked (and in the third game it's revealed Asad didn't even order the nuke). He then got killed in a black operation by Brits for a crime he didn't commit.

The Abyss Watchers were based? If only irl though? Comrade 10/15/2020 (Thu) 05:30:12 No. 5211 [Reply]
"The legion will bury a country/kingdom at the first sign of exposure." If only there was a real life version of the legion that dealt with places corrupted by the 'neoliberal abyss' a similar way. Where human thinking or behavior is so depraved to a point where you have all this BS where the masses hardly care at all about climate change, inequality and doing anything to eliminate pandemics.
"The Undead Legion of Farron is a caravan of Undead. Sworn by the wolf's blood to contain the Abyss, the Legion will bury a kingdom at the first sign of exposure. Joyous bunch, really.”
The crazy conspiracy theorist Alt-Right are pretty much like Abyss corrupted 'people' but it happens to their brains instead of bodies. Imagine if there was something that razed the country they lived in to 'purge the corruption'.

"Sworn by the wolf's blood to contain the Abyss, the Legion will bury a kingdom at the first sign of exposure."
I might be getting my Darksouls lore mixed up, but isn't the abyss based, or at least better than the tyranny of the lords of fire?

Is there any game as class conscious as Disco Elysium?

>>5179 Life must be an incredibly painful experience if you're incapable of enjoying yourself unless everything blows smoke up your ass with politics you agree with.
Please check the catalog before making a thread. >>2527
>>5183 I agree with your post but Disco Elysium is far more than your average """leftist""" handwaving in media.
>>5184 Sorry, My thread has been redirected from /leftypol/.
>>5183 I do not agree with all the politics of disco Elysium. But, most video game are, to me, alienation. Video games are mostly a waste of your free brain time. Most of the the time only mindless violence. So I stand by what I said, it’s the only game worth your time for a leftist. Or at least one of the few.

So in case you didn't hear about some of the stuff people have found digging through the files of Alyx but Half-Life 3 literally died for this game as in the assets for the cancelled Half-Life 3 game are still in Source 2's coding and even the weapons for the game are still packaged in the model files. Also it turns out Alyx is just a reworked Half-Life short story as people found the normal non-VR files for the game and it was just a tech demo that was 40 minutes long, the VR stuff was just slapped on and it was turned into a full game. TL;DR: Alyx is just the greedy cash grab on the Half-Life name we all knew it was and the proof was literally in the pudding.

Why are there 2 half-life threads?
>>731 He was fired because his hl3 was awful
>>4505 It could have been good, its impossible to tell based on synopses like that. If you were to reduce HL2 to its base synopses and tell people about straight after HL1 they would almost certainly say the same thing.
>>4541 Half-Life 2 was garbage along with its shitty "episodes" and a sequel to all that couldn't have been anything other than garbage.

Wait which one? I don't remember any WW2 CoD that let you do that beyond standard multiplayer factions. The only one that actually included the Japs was WaW which had the reverse in the campaign.
>>1497 >they're not the usual enemies In VC:Stories you are a soldier who goes against his corrupt superior. Though in this case it is depicted as a "bad apple" and not as a systemic problem as it is irl.
>>1504 Holy shit, I thought that only applied to movies. Though in hindsight with how prominent video games have become, I guess it was obvious.
>>2086 I wish that game had been better cause some of the pre-release stuff is great, I love cheesy corporate monologuey stuff like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6JynhUTIpY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04i_k_DaUOQ why are there so many random whooshes and bleeps and sound effects in that first trailer? who cares, it's great!
>>5116 Sorry, to be slightly off topic again, it has the same energy as this guy who I also love. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGaCJSar92M I'm starting to think my ideal career goal is just to be the clearly evil spokesman for a clearly evil yet dramatic regime
