Kremlin Games Comrade 07/09/2020 (Thu) 07:09:45 No. 2259 [Reply]
Thought we should have a thread on these guys, there's one in /hobby/ but the post numbering fucks up when you move a thread so we may as well start again. They're also like 60% off for the next 10 hours https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/13416/Cold_War_Bundle/ Includes: Crisis in the Kremlin, Crisis in the Kremlin: The Accident, Ostalgie: The Berlin Wall, China: Mao's legacy, Ostalgie: Legacy of Hoxha, Ostalgie: Fall of the Curtain, Crisis in the Kremlin: Homeland of the Revolution And I found some stuff of their latest game (screenshots attached why does this shitty website upload them in random order?): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvodCCK2u2U

>>2294 For me, I think, the absolute height of Kremlin Games is their original CITK where you have the military, KGB etc lying to you telling you it's fine after ordering a nuclear assault on half the planet and getting thoroughly deposed, you just don't see that much nowadays. Dr Evil GDR that bombs everything and blames it on NATO is also a great feature. I think it will be very interesting to win as Russia in the new game, since they're not naive at all and despite being socialists pushing a narrative are very cynical in how they think victory is achieved I agree with them. I'm ready for narco-state USSR tbqh, with a bit of kidnapping on the side.
>>2295 I think it's not going to be about Russia, but an unspecified SR. So I think there might be an interesting dynamic where you will have to suck up to Putin's Russia at the cost of your independence to fend off from the western influences. Note how in the screenshot you got what looks like Russian and US influence both at 50.
I recognise that the games are great, but they are too complicated to be worth the time. Except for DDR, Romania, and Hungary in Ostalgie. That shit was fuckn ez.
as much as I like them conceptually, the gameplay can feel too mechanical and the graphics are practically powerpoint slideshow tier
I wish the game told you more about what your policies and technologies actually do.

Resident Evil General Comrade 07/25/2020 (Sat) 14:25:47 No. 3228 [Reply]
Let's have a thread dedicated to one of the greatest (and worst) video game series of all time. Resident evil; Resident evil 7 is actually terrifying right? I'm not just a massive pussy right? I have trouble playing that game because of how frightening it can be, lol. What do you guys think?
>>3228 Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition is literally the only good one.

g4tv Comrade 07/24/2020 (Fri) 22:54:17 No. 3207 [Reply]
https://youtu.be/aegzuPD1DUc they're thinking of bringing back g4tv if you dont know what that is, watch this video https://youtu.be/ZEBwGOHntro how the fuck do they expect this to ever work out? I have great memories of g4 and techtv before it, and i would love it to come back. But its IMPOSSIBLE, it will get cancelled immediately. Even the memory of it should be getting cancelled. There was so much that shit that doesn't fly now like ironic racism, or so exploitative about women. And attack of the show was basically filming olivia munn getting sexually harassed for 2 hours a day The problem I see, is that they either have to make it woke, which would suck. OR even worse they have to make it anti-woke. It would become like some cringe youtube alt-right shit. There's no going back to just politically neutral gaming where its fine to grope women and they have to like it.

G4 was shit from start to finish. Sage for not video games.
Just focus on gaming and air people playing virtual sports tournaments to fill in dead air. It worked with sports during the pandemic.

Self-imposed challenges Anonymous Gamer 03/31/2020 (Tue) 16:37:40 No. 540 [Reply]
How's that self-imposed challenge coming, anon? You do challenge yourself... don't you?

Currently doing NES FF1 using 4 Master Monks.
>>1537 Is that even fun?
I challenged myself to play one retro game daily
>>1538 It wasn't as bad as I expected because of their massive damage output. Most bosses didn't last a single turn. I'll finish it at some point... can't train in the last dungeon without an exit spell.

(37.35 KB 1131x474 DescentII-level2.png)
Recently beat Descent on Insane difficulty with a rule of no mid-level saving allowed. Maybe it's just because I learned what to expect about surprises around corners at some point, but I really feel like the middle of the game where it completely swarms you with homing missile-launching Super Hulks and hitscan insta-firing class 1 drillers is actually the hardest part. I was constantly struggling to make it to the next level with a good score bonus to earn just a few extra lives to survive the next stage. In the final stages, however, I was running around with 10+ lives across levels until the end. It's unfortunate, but gitting gud at Descent is really about either engaging enemies so far away that it doesn't activate their aggression or having foresight about the level design and making liberal use of homing and smart missiles to kill enemies around corners where they can't shoot. It's a shame this game didn't have some more fair enemy variety, the map design gets very cool in the later levels. Moving on to Descent II now, and it's amazing how much of an improvement over its predecessor it is. More interesting enemies, more weapons to tackle them in different ways, and the map design gets balls crazy already on the 2nd stage in the game!

So, what do you think about the FF7 remake?

CHADley is the single greatest addition to FF conceivable. Can't wait til he rams his Seph-clone, materia-enhanced PENIS right into Cloud's cross-dressing BUSSY.
I see Squeenix still hasn't figured out how to make anything other than creepy hollow doll faces.
>>112 >The ghosts that can change the timeline of events that are from the future What? Was this in the original?
>>114 This explains what I was feeling pretty well. The irony of a large video game corporation remaking a game that critiques large corporations and softening the edge / changing the focus of the criticism is pretty funny. The anti-corporate theme just seems absurd when combined with the white-washing of Avalanche, the deaths of the sub-characters, etc.
>>114 Maybe you and anyone in general should check out what the PC version looks like modded with the Because retranslation which restranslates it to more closely follow the original Japanese script. Nothing more voluntary, communitarian, and syndicalistic than partaking in community fanmodding and media in general.

Also the new far cry seems to be based on cuba. No doubts it will be anti-socialist

>>2820 Speaking of Cuba, lately I've been fucking around with random NES roms and found out that the Japanese version of the game Guerilla War is straight up called "Guevara", you play as Che and Fidel and it opens with "Dedicated to Che Guevara, hero of Cuban revolution", while the Batista troops are portrayed as cowards and rapists. SNK is unexpectedly based.

RIP EVO – what's next? Comrade 07/07/2020 (Tue) 23:50:01 No. 2223 [Reply]
Now that Evo is dead, will there be a new annual big event of gaming tournaments to replace it? Can something be built from the grounds up, with less corporate interfetterence? Maybe some very old games from dead companies? A slot for Open Source gaming? The entire event Adults Only? What do you think of the logo I made? I'm also thinking about having a mascot named Major T. But I can't draw.

>>2233 >pulling out heh
I'd like to see a fighting game tournament put together by players who actually care about good games instead of sucking off the latest hype trash by developers and publishers determined to kill their own games. Sadly, such things are impossible.
>>2243 The FGC is constantly organizing events. Covid has thrown a wrench into muh locals but even then there's still online. TeamSpooky on Twitch organizes weekly DBZ, GBFVS and KOF tourneys for example. I wish they were bigger, but they won't grow if (You) don't participate as audience or player.

Has anybody else here played this? What do you think about it?
2 posts omitted.
>>2145 But what kind of game is it? Is it a shitty game that you shill just because you like the story?
>>2147 It's a strategy game where you try to organize a resistance cell against the Nazi, you get to recruit followers send them on missions and make tough decisions on what to do and how to react. I wouldn't say that the gameplay is something never seen before the most interesting part is the setting for sure. You basically get to live the rise of the Nazis to power I actually learned a few historical events I didn't know about. I'm worning you tho that the game can get pretty heavy if you are a particularly sensitive individual.
>>2142 Is there any way to win the game in any chapter that isn't 4? Can you stop the nazis before they fuck up Europe or is more about annoying them? I tried a "pacifist" route and i did barely any changes to history.
>>2142 Are there socialist or trade unionists agents?
