>multiple 2TB hard drives full of games >never touch them >bought a PS4 back in 2018 and practically every game I would ever be interested in >haven't beat one >have every handheld modded and a PC that can run any emulator with high specs >never play anyway Is it possible to just completely lose interest in video games? I know people who played substantially more than me during their adolescence, yet their appetite for gaming doesn't seem to diminish. I don't think it's burnout because no amount of time away is affecting my interest.

>>4868 lmao no
A lot of video games are just a series of checklists that you fill out, or are empty vacant rooms that you're supposed to interact in. This could be said about a lot of things though, but it is easy to start seeing multiple games of the same type as being too samey. There is also a lot of pressure to like games that you're "supposed" to like in order to be a based lord or whatever even if they aren't terribly appealing to your appetite.
>>4858 This is why I pirate everything. I know that I have a tendency to play games for a couple of days at most and drop them.
>>4876 Games you don't have to like: >open world Have a high tendency to be really boring, especially if they're made by Ubisoft. >le Souls Not everybody likes yet another Demon's Souls clone, even if they are "the only hard games ever made"
that's called growing up

Anyone still plays this? Was feeling nostalgic for some time now and wanted to try it again. How do I get it for free in Current Year?

>>4871 Ah, and I'm referring to the trial, of course. You won't need a torrent or some shady site if you just want to play single player for free. A torrent won't give you a working Realms ID, either, I believe. Better download it from the official site. https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/free-trial If you get stuck, come back to this thread and I will walk you through it. Simply using a third party launcher might work, too.
>>4872 So I can do everything free on single player version by removing the -demo? modding also okay?
>>4871 >>4872 Thanks, I found a way to play it using MCLeaks. Maybe it's a bit shady but it works for now.

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

I never much played Pharaoh and Zeus seems a bit clunky. I did really enjoy the chinkie one, that campaign was solid.
>>485 You can get them on GOG for pretty cheap. I bought them for my Aunt who was obsessed with them. I could never figure these games out but she build mega cities that could run by themselves.

This board has become boring as fuck due to all the goddamn LARPers who won't talk about anything unless they can role-play as leftists in it. To rectify this situation, let's talk about some of our favorite white-knuckle thrills. Are you a hardcore action gamer, anon?
this board's traffic is just too low, it's like trying to have game discussion through gas station bathroom scrawls.

Any of you guys play the objectively best board game around? Any alliances better than R/T?
>tfw you need friends to play board games with deal breaker :(
old ass thread but Austria Italy is certainly a match for Russia Turkey assuming the other powers aren't interfering with the east. Also western triple is the strongest alliance that is actually realistic in the average game (i.e. the players can actually stay allied through to the end game)
>>4787 The online community for Diplomacy is vibrant tho. You can find different people to play against on web Diplomacy every day. It's not nearly as fun as playing with friends in my experience but it's still 8/10

It's almost been 4 years since Square Enix stopped production of the series, leaving it on the biggest cliffhanger imaginable. Will the series ever get picked up again? And if so, do you think the original plans will have been abandoned?

>>1954 SE are known for fucking over anything that isn't the latest passion project from the same clique, shit just got even worse for gaijins. Nier Automata only got made because the Dragon Quest producer threatened to leave, Kawazu spent almost a decade (or a decade if you don't count The Last Remmant) in gacha hell until he was able to make a new game, and Yoshida's team keeps getting money and manpower siphoned away even after saving the Final Fantasy brand.
Anybody have the secret society political compass? It has illuminati on authleft, bilderberg on center, templars on authright, masons on libright and the reason i wanna see it again is because i forgot what libleft is

>>478 >It's a real shame the gaming community overlooked it over some stupid memes like it being 2 hours long (when it's the longest Deus Ex game). It didn’t feel short just really inconclusive. Too many loose ends. When I heard it was originally meant to be a two part series, everything made so much sense.

Best faction?
7 posts and 1 image omitted.
its a video game, grow up
>>4137 Aight, so going down the list of those faction conflicts: Templars vs Mages. The reason why I really enjoy this one is because both factions are right in their own way. Mages are absolutely treated like shit and are very often subjected to a fate worse than death - to be made a tranquil, aka magical lobotomy. Also such treatment is reinforced by religious dogma. However, this is not without justification. All mages due to the rules of the setting are constantly a threat to others and themselves. Even the most experienced mages, when the situation is wrong in just the right way, or the circumstance forces one to "go all out", will become possessed by demons and cause destruction to all around them. Control is necessary. I quite like that this conflict is presented in the background and isn't shown as an open conflict (at least if you keep DA:O in a vacuum as it should be, because sequels weren't originally planned). This means that the discussion about what should be done should be far less partisan, and I believe it would be really interesting to discuss the possibilities of how such a conflict could be resolved. Also, I think, it is a very interesting portrayal of the policeman issue, so prevalent currently, of what happens when a guardian starts thinking they are the punisher. Who becomes the king of Ferelden. This one is slightly less interesting, but would be quite curious to properly dissect all of the many different paths, as they all relate to the rather interesting topic of feudal politics. I don't recall of the top of my head, but I believe there are like 10 outcomes which all have their own hooks. Dwarf elections. The best one for last. I partially delayed my reply so I could look this one up better, as I just discovered myself a new curious perspective for the conflict between the two candidates. Basically the situation, as first seems presented, is this: dwarfs are a collapsing empire that also is ultraconservative and thus suffers for its failed caste system. The two likely royals are - the son of the last king, Bhelen, who presents himself as a social reformist and an old noble conservative Harrowmont, who claims to stand for stability and to be against the other candidate, alleging he murdered his siblings and father to get into power. Obviously first instinct is to support the reformer, however it becomes clear that he is deeply connected to the dwarf mafia and is also in fact killer of his family, while also being a total piece of shit himself, compared to the kind Harrowmont who truly seeks stability. However, what matters is what these would actually accomplish as king. Turns out as how horrible Bhelen is as a person, seeking power for himself he manages to reform the crumbling empire and drag it out of its ultraconservative isolation, while the nice guy Harrowmont manages to fuck the castles dwarfs even more than before while still leaving everything crumbling. And while it is clear for us lefties that Bhelen is based here, it would still be an interesting discussion on gaming forums. But wait... that is not the full analysis of the dwarf kings. While taking some more research I had a eureka moment. No, Bhelen isn't based, they are both shit, and this conflict is a perfectly predicted parallel of 2020 presidential election. Let me explain. One of the main driving desires for Bhelin is power, that is the only reason he carries out his reforms. He wants to improve the situation for the castles, but mainly only so they could become his cannon fodder to restore the lost dwarf empire. He is the proverbial Trump - leading what remains of the dying empire into a last huzzah charge of the Light Brigade. There is no victory to be gained - the dwarfs got crushed by the darkspawn while their empire was at its zenith, Bhelin is fucking deluded in his quest and will only destroy the remnants faster. Meanwhile Harrowmont is the perfect Biden - a dying old man who is just so nice. It is literally stated in-game that he will die soon. His vision for the future is just a continued collapse under the old normal. Its the same "come on man, don't let that mean guy lead us to ruin, join me and lets all fade away as we always did". In short, dwarfs are fucked one way or the other, but the exploration of this situation, especially when it is presented stripped from IRL politics, can be quite fascinating. Anyway, that's kind of it, hope I didn't sound too much like an epic redditor in the last paragraph with the 2020 comparison.

Mindustry. You should try it, industry based tower-defence game that is free software released under the GPL. It has a following in the tens of thousands. Also, hoi4 absolute ripoff you need all the DLCS (except death or dishonor) to actually make this game enjoyable and even then it is just shit.
>>4492 Thats standard paradox practise, the secret is to just either pirate the DLCs or grab them when they inevitably give them away in a humble bundle (be sure to set the slider to maximum charity)
>>4134 good choice. the infamous WP section was such a moral and narrative cop-out from the studio, but I enjoyed it until the end as well. Apocalypse Now is still the best piece of fiction dealing with that subject matter, in my opinion.
(14.24 KB 848x480 rgbzue9wtg451.jpg)
CoD Warzone, csgo and eu4.
>>4552 I find the WP scene works better if you view it primarily as a criticism of the death from above section in modern shooters. The original plan to have the game diverge by allowing you to not do it would have undermined the point it ended up making about how these segments in the shooters of the time were railroading you into committing atrocities and then patting you on the back for it. Its also the first major point where Walker diverges from just being the self insert and becomes the deconstructed military shooter protagonist with some aspects of the kind of person that plays military shooters left in which is why you see the "its guilting me for something the game made me do", it only attacks Walker the character for doing it, the guilt trip loading screen messages are aimed at the player for picking up a game where you shoot foreigners for entertainment in the first place. The best part of the scene in my mind is the immediately after where he's attacking the un-mortared command centre of the gate and desperately hoping for some secret revelation because in a regular game of the type they would stick some meaning to justify what just happened instead it was for nought. I do find it interesting how hyperfocused people become on that scene, its far from the only atrocity you commit in the game (I think the aquatic Colosseum is far better executed too) but I suppose most people just block out the fact that they gunned down refugees or slaughtered masses of deserter soldiers so they can make more refugees die of thirst because theres no burned baby at the end. >Apocalypse Now is still the best piece of fiction dealing with that subject matter I agree there, it really captures the spirit of the book which the game pretty much doesn't beyond the descent into madness and critique of something that was popular in society at the time.

Anyone here tried 'Lawless Lands'? Comrade 09/08/2020 (Tue) 14:42:45 No. 4531 [Reply]
So its 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."
