Is this game Marxpilled?

The villain is literally named Porky and his literal capitalist empire is themed after pigs, why aren't there more communist MOTHER memes??


You can't go wrong with playing them as originally intended: NES, SNES, and GBA.
Most people start with 2, go to 3, and 1 is usually an afterthought because of the grind.

I personally suggest playing 1 via the 1+2 remake for GBA, but that's just me.

No and it's about the only thing that would make the game better. There is no collective workers struggle that topples the Pigmasks, it revolved around 2 psychic kids, a dog and a neet finding enough mcguffins.
It is the most outwardly anti-capitalist game I've ever played though, and probably the best JRPG ever made in regards to the system it came out on. Like, they pretty accurately depicted the carrots and sticks of imperialism, they never try to portray capitalism as anything but "when things got shitty", reform isn't even on the table because any half measure would still be barbaric compared to what the Nowhere Islands were before.
Even the personal stories the characters go through have a strong anti-reactionary bent. The entire chapter with Flint shows just how hollow and useless petty revenge against an exploited group is, but it never hesitates to show that all violence carried out against the Pig Mask Army is absolutely fucking justified.
One of my biggest frustrations with other supposed anti-capitalist games is that they try to suggest that whatever self-defense against capitalism is taken is just as brutal as capitalism itself, The Outer Worlds being the first example that comes to my head. The only time Mother 3 comes anywhere close towards that would be the ending, and even then between the way the events play out and the story that led up to it, totally justified.
Also the Pig Masks are the perfect fascists. They show up as police a lot of the time, and do "police shit" (protect capital). They're threatening with their tech and fetish for violence, but they're also a bunch of fat dipshits who bumble around in an amusing way.

>series created by a literal marketer
Really makes you think.


What comes close to a revolution, I think, is the Dragon's awakening. It destroys, but also has the potential to rebuild, depending on the person who pulls the needles. And to get rid of Porky's empire it has to be completely destroyed. Most of the characters who learned about the Dragon and the needles supported Lucas.

Is this the worst mechanic ever put into action games? Is there anything more deflating then framing gameplay in real time with spatial control to give the appearance of player control and skill mattering, only to have them fail at random due to a number?

That's reaction fire during the alien's turn.

One of the reasons high level Doom speed running is awful.


I mean, it's kinda realistic though. Getting shot is pretty much a random process, you can die in one bullet or get lucky and tank 5 of them without serious injury.

Hello comrades, I've been playing the Harvest Moon/ Rune Factory/ Story of Seasons series for a long time, is Farming Simulator worth it? Is it relaxing and tranquil? Or is it too realistic and a desperate push to break even?

Other sims allowed in this thread too, flight sims, goat sims, whatever.


The Harvest Moon series is best described as a sort of social life RPG. It's a big mistake to group it in with sims, which don't even making any real attempt to be games.

The site's good for general discussion of gaming stuff of course, but for those who play multiplayer there's no way to connect and team up with/1v1 fellow bunkerbros,
and the actual /leftypol/ Matrix server seems more for direct discussion about political theory (duh) and moderation.
I just wanna play tf2 with bros who don't think 'gasthejuice' is actually funny, you know.
Voot and discuss.

Let's see how many people here are actually interested in a matrix room for /games/. Here's a room I made (https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org). I will ask mods to add this to /leftypol/'s matrix community if we get some people on board.


tried joining, says i am not invited, go figure


Did you enter the address or click the link with ). added to the end?


Sorry forgot setting it so anyone who has the link can join. You can try now. https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org (fixed typo in the link)

Valve Index: One Year Later
Around when do you believe these will price drop to the more reasonable 200 dollar range?


Can I get a little more context on your link OP before spending 30 minutes increasing the video hit count for a shit eating e-celeb?


That's not an e-celeb. Its what it says on the tin: Review of the Valve Index after a year of usage

It seems like a pretty random place, but it seems like that these people are pretty much 80% trump supporters. A lot of ex-obsidian guys hang out over there and shit post about SJWs and stuff. It's a pretty big place where Underrail and Age of Decadence (the two big meme CRPGs) developers hang out so it's not a small place.
I Just find it weird how reactionary these people are though.

Sorry, didn't mean to mansplain


GOOD post.


what does that even mean, this word has no meaning
the ancient regime is dead and will never come back
all I see is the big three technocratic religions fighting each other like the three original god given religions used to do


first cause they're burgers, second many small and loved rpg studios over there have had problem with retarded sjw


also the elitism foster a reactionnary culture I guess

Farewell gamers of leftypol. /games/ future will be voted on the 31st Dec
The community mostly sees that this board -along with /anime/- should be merged to hobby. We shall meet each other there soon.

t. OP


What's that site about? They seem reactionary.


This is pretty melodramatic. Game threads on /hobby/ are still game threads.
Join lain regardless tho, it would be more active.


8ch diaspora site for people who hated /a/ and /v/ but still wanted to talk about anime and video games.


Why'd they delete the thread though
I wanted to know what other anons's ideas were
And I also wanted to propose that we should try to repost our new posts from Bunkerchan's hobby boards on this site to let others know that we're here wanting to continue our conversations

What are your favourites? Been playing pic related (Rogue State) yesterday, it's not the best game but it has a banging national anthem.


Last week I played Suzerain at the suggestion of a topic on bunkerchan, that was better IMO but I ran into a game ending bug which is always sad.

Which ones do you love? Hidden Agenda, Democracy 3, or?

Should I get it?

I wonder if it will be in favour of libertarian socialism or a completely decontextualised porky screed. The description says it will try to 'tackle the issues of 2020' so that sounds like a winner.

Why does it have anime style visuals?


That just looks like a contemporary western style to me, though granted there has been a heavy Japanese influence.


>I wonder if it will be in favour of libertarian socialism
Why would it be? The game is based on an anti-communist book


Figures. The fact they had the persmission of the Orwell estate just makes it more damning.

I pirated it and tried to play, but all three times I played it Snowball was exiled from the farm by Napoleon after proposing the windmill and things deteriorated from there. Also, the game basically portrays all of the pigs as pretty hypocritical and malevolent, rather than having Snowball as a 'counterweight' and basically gives the impression that animal farm sucks and it was better when the farmers ran things. I'm sure it's possible to win but after 2.5 plays I don't really wanna put in the effort to do more. It's also VERY repetitive. Overall, a 4/10.

Hi /Games/. Tired of being the same kind of talky-talk board? Want to be a Get Shit Done Board like the imageboards of yore?

Why not help in creating a leftist post-apocalyptic community for Catacylsm:DDA, a singleplayer roguelike-like survival game? It could act as propaganda, that is to say nothing obvious and not just having the communists as the good guys but that could leave players walking away thinking 'huh, maybe some of my ideas about leftism/communism were wrong/unfounded.'

You don't need any knwoledge to help, just your ideas and a willingness to learn simple markup ( JSON ) if you would like to write data.

Mostly right now I am looking for Lore, how the group came together, interesting leftist characters, backstories, mission ideas, anything.

obviously we will have to add our mascot as a character so what kind of stats and proficiencies would Alunya have? If she cannot have cat ears what would be next best thing? Wolfs?


Oh, and C:DDA is the best Survival game out there. Prove me wrong.
8 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


also, we should consider if we want to go with the mainline DDA fork or the Bright Nights fork, or both. DDA is more near-future where bright nights is sci-fi.


I was considering the same. I'm thinking mainline for now and hopefully we can add extra content for BN. Also i'd like to see some more basic factions in vanilla and for BN to become more developed first and become more refined even if it means sticking with vanila lore.

Can you guys tell me how Alunya could be as a person? so i can choose traits and make the dialogue i write for her right now feel less wooden. Character traits, etc?


File: 1608528366755.bmp (5.93 MB, 1920x1080, Catalunya.bmp)

I accidentally made her male, but here's a sketch. Maybe no cooking and some survival. And there are plenty more cat perks to add if you want, though I'm not sure how catty she is. Need a furry in here asap to offer advice.


Great. Yea, i will add more cat mutations as time goes by and if you do quests for her, get her to the larger faction base, etc!
Do you think she should start with tail and ears or just ears and they'll mutate the tail fairly early on, such as after first or second mission?
The latter was my thoughts anywas.

Can you send me over the JSON file or just post it here? I dont think this thread will get much interest but if it does we can use a free file sharing service like: https://cryptpad.fr/ Or just github to share eachothers things. :)

I'm working on dong the building she start in at hte moment and will be nice if i had base of character layed out.

I think she will be kind of cagey about her role in protests unit you get to know her more or have high speech/perception. What do you think?


Wrote her first quick quest, havn't checked yet but honestly want to just get them out and refine/bugfix later. What is her cat [KITTY] called? I think some kind of non obvous reference to her ideology or leftypol here could be quite nice.
