Metal Gear Thread Anonymous Gamer 04/11/2020 (Sat) 22:04:17 No. 8 [Reply]
Sup comrades. Who here is a fan of the Metal Gear games? It's got strong anti-imperialist and anti-war themes and one of the games (Peace Walker) pretty much has you playing as Che Guevara. Which game do you like best? My favourite would be MGS3.

>>10 >it not being as 2DEEP as people make it seem. It may not have the depth some people ascribe to it but it is surely a pinnacle of post-modern media. How it relates itself to the first game is completely unique and could not be done in any other medium.
1 = 2 = 3 >>> 4 = 5 = PW the first three MGS game are DIMES, just perfect video games. I'm currently trying to play the old MSX games, MG1 was shit honestly but I hear MG2 is better. Both old came have an awesome super late cold war vibe though as they were made RIGHT before the fall of USSR. The cover art for MG2 is so awesome I even got a poster of it.
Redpill me on MGS4. I sat through that awful shit and I cannot believe it has zero subtext or preachy Kojimmy shit, because it feels like a mush of fanservice and pandering that attempts to wrap up every single plot point in the most contrived and absurd way possible (and then shits up that in the ending too).
>>1602 MGS4 is an odd beast. It has both the highest highs and lowest lows of the series. Piloting Rex, the final fight, most of the other boss fights, and chapter 1 and 2 are amazing. But I never understood why people say it is fanservice. It is fandiservice if anything. Snake being an old man for no good reason instead of in his prime, Meryl marrying mr poopy pants, dumb shit like Mount Snakemoore. MGS4 is weird.
Solid Snake basically implies you are more than your genes

Demon's Souls Remake Comrade 06/20/2020 (Sat) 09:42:25 No. 1830 [Reply]
>new flamelurker But why? Unless it's actually a phase thing where the new rocky bits including the skull face/mask go away after enough damage and exposes the old fleshy design, it's a total downgrade. The horns seem to be the same general shape and the new face has a hollow top, making it look like a mask. That's the only way I see how the redesign can work.

>>1870 kys reactionary /v/ shitposter these remakes are cancer and an insult to the original artists.
Be honest, anons. You didn't cheese flamefucker, did you?
>>1897 Honestly don't remember. I think I used magic once. Last playthrough was a 40/40 quality one, as usual. I remember it being my most thorough yet. Learned to pin down every crystal lizard in that stonefang pit. Dressed a couple of times as Biorr but with an actually useful bow. Killing the blue dragon with 10 or 20 shots was cathartic. Biorr's ultra greatsword was fun as hell. It's probably one of those things that people would consider as "jank" after Dark Souls. The attacks are unlike anything that came after. One handed, it's faster to use R2->R1 and reversed when two handing. I'd say it's only "janky" because its eccentricities were never refined by its successors. Since DaS, ultra greatswords are just beefier greatswords moveset-wise. Still fun but not as unique. The last thing I remember doing was messing around with character and world tendency to get colourless demon's souls for my penetrating sword. That's another fun one. It's surprising how fun unique/boss weapons are. They usually have an interesting mechanic and sometimes stat scaling. Ironically, having the basic weapon moveset makes them more intuitive than the "press R2 for flashy attack" you'd usually get in later Souls. I think I started manipulating world tendency at the endgame when everything was pure white. Sudoku until (pure?) black, find the bug, get the soul, kill black phantoms for loot and to go back to white. Didn't get back to pure white if I remember correctly. Just one more boss kill which required the next NG+. I remember now reminding myself to do this before killing the last boss of each area so I can get back to PW. I also tried farming pure bladestone for some reason. Don't remember if I got one.
>>1897 First time on emulator just rolled and slashed normally like I usually did in these games. First try. I thought if that was the hardest this game had then it's easy coasting from then on. I realised I was wrong when I went into beta blight town and I kinda got stuck there up until now with the red phantoms bc i died too much. I think blupoint already fucked up the og atmosphere like they did with SotC, tbh. Pretty much what >>1861 said, no real understanding of the original vision. Replacy medieval with gothic architecture because they must've thought it looked cooler bc it's more intricate. Idk.
>>1924 I've also aggroed and had to put down the merchant there so I don't know if just have to start over. There's just too many of these fucking things. So annoying.

I don't understand the joke in this article Comrade 06/12/2020 (Fri) 15:52:38 No. 1679 [Reply]
me neither
>>1679 Either the gamification of work or some people do treat gaming like it is work.
Thanks for the link, was amusing. The gamer/author of the article has a certain personality structure that is lampooned: thinks he's hyper-intelligent and capable (not necessarily true) and talks down to others, also thinks gamers are an oppressed group. In this case the author has correctly identified that a multiplayer product without players is not desirable. The joke is his sense of unwarranted self-importance. He is correct in demanding a share of the profits (or that the whole environment should be a cooperative), but the sum of his contributions are simply by nature minuscule compared to the labour needed to provide electricity/hardware/et cetera. Unless he's a major influencer he's entirely unimportant to the whole enterprise. The framing of "oppression of the working class" is just a way to make fun of a certain kind of person, who'd apply a concept in a non-intended way (which IMO is neither nice nor educational).
Gamers rise up!

>>1655 >Who cares about Revachol more? Joyce or Evart It's up to you what you believe, but, I think, it's implied that Claires did nothing wrong, and are all around brilliant. Also that a struggle or a revolution can't be accomplished wearing white gloves
>>1655 Small interesting thought, I think Joyce is more of a Mozovian tham Claire. Even though she is said to be an ultralib by the game website, I think by the time we meet her she is just a pathetic, disilusioned and sad woman who realised Mazov was right all along (she, out of all characters, sounds the most as an actual Marxist in her view of the world). However, being doomerpilled and likely heavily damaged by exposure to the pale, she just let's herself to the flow, staying as a corporate pmc tool for a company that is implied to slowly go bankrupt since it doesn't even matter to her.
>>1883 In that regard, Joyce is like Elon Musk. She's smart, she realizes that what she does is mad, inhumane and pointless, but, apart from some self-consolating rhetoric, she's 100% on board. Also, I assume you didn't actually manage to unlock "true" nature of either Joyce or Claire - which both are quite essential. Joyce is a board member. She tries hard to: "pose as middle class" and style it as if there's no class difference between her, Harry, and Martinaise residents.
>>1885 She could also be really great at diplomacy and telling what others want to hear, as she was first introduced to us. But it's less possible because she saw the Pale and the greatness of it makes everything look pointless in comparison.
>>1885 Idk forsaking the port seemed like the humane choice over the profitable one. She was even freaking out over what the soldiers might do despite the company losing no PR over it.

Has anyone played this yet? It just came out today on Switch and I thought I would give it a shot. So far, it's actually pretty fun. It's like a more violent 2d pikmin with an explicit anti-capitalist message. https://youtu.be/A6fqavi8Too

>>1706 They noticed and later changed it so that the funding would go directly to BLM at the local level, except for $5k to the national BLM (which has probably been hijacked.)
>>1808 Still incredibly shady. BLM is a decentralized social media movement, that's like saying you're going to make a donation to "the gamergate". Who the fuck is "BLM" the organization which all these phony corporations claim to be donating to lately?
>>1697 >but I didn't find the gameplay fun. the heck you mean? it was fun as heck

Do we have an OSRS clan chat?
I'm gonna make one if we dont if there's interest
Do yourself a favour and stop playing osrs. It's a skinnerbox in all its facets. Ditch that game and get a grindy hobby like drawing or music that you can actually improve at and get actual results in.
>>1782 That applies to every video game.

For the next week Itch.io will be helping out BLM by selling a bundle of 1,470+ games for $5. Half of the money goes to the NAACP, the other half goes to the Defense and Educational Fund and the Community Bail Fund. It's basically like action 52 all over again so there's a lot of shitty games, but there are some gems and very creative games mixed in. So it's worth it, because there's more entertainment here than in a year long subscription to Netflicks. It'll take me a long time to go through them, but if I discover any gems I'll talk about them. https://www.engadget.com/itch-io-racial-justice-game-bundle-023655179.html
I got this bundle, some fun stuff in there with demsoc/socdem themes too (since most people in this collection are lefties), I enjoyed Democratic Socialism Simulator and Death and Taxes and enjoyed both of them letting me build my utopia.

ITT: Reccommend great games that can run on any PC (or at least any PC made in the 2010's).
9 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>1598 >La Mulana and it's remake and sequel Sadly, the sequel is made on Unity and will NOT run on a potato computer. It's a great game but there's absolutely no excuse that a pixel graphics game can't run on integrated GPU
>>1563 Team Fortress 2
KotoR 1 and 2 Tropico 1 and 2 Rogue Legacy Cuphead (heard it runs well on potatoes) Kremlin Games Victoria 2 Undertale and Deltarune (I'd imagine even total potatoes run these) Old Medal of Honor games Return to Castle Wolfenstein Dragon Age: Origins (might be a stretch, but I think it should work) Fallout NV (ran this on my shitty 2006 knock of laptop few years back when main computer broke down, while low fps, it worked)
My recommendations are I guess: Visual Novels (I like Analogue: A Hate Story) Dwarf Fortress and its lesser known cousin Liberal Crime Squad (one of my favourite games tbh) Old school RPGs like Baldurs Gate Old school shooters like Deus Ex

>>1590 Yeah "2010s" covers everything from present day (even midrange cellphones now have quad-core 2>GHz CPUs, 3> GB RAM, Vulkan-capable GPUs, & 720p screens) back to 2010 (netbook/nettop PCs with <2GHz single-core CPUs, <1GB RAM, D3D6/OGL2 GPUs, and sub-XGA screens were sold in large quantities) Note that if you're fortunate enough to be using a desktop with at least a single PCIe x8 slot (even a crappy low-profile/riser one without dedicated electricity), you can massively increase the number of games it can play by spending $40 on a GPU and more RAM from eBay. >>1598 >Emulation, even my mid 00's potato could emulate N64 and PSX games >And of course, any PC game made in the early 00's or before should work unless it was a cutting edge title. This. Note that depending on how new your OS is, you might have to multiboot or use emulators for older PC games, with the recommended emulators being DOSBox for Windows 3.11 and older (or better yet play Mac/Amiga/Atari/X68k/Towns/etc. ports if they exist since WinTel was utter dogshit before 95), PCEm for Windows 95-to-XP. If you have Linux installed, WINE has perfect compatibility with a surprising number of ancient Windows games that newer versions of Windows don't. Backward compatibility across Windows Vista/7/8/10 is generally perfect, with only an occasional trip to PC Gaming Wiki needed for usually simple fixes. Some useful wikis: https://vsrecommendedgames.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page >generally pretty good newbie recommendations and brief descriptions of the best games for various platforms, eras, and genres. note that some redditor shit taste contamination occured in the early '10s, though this has mostly been cleaned up by /v/irgins. http://emulation.gametechwiki.com/ >thorough yet approachable up-to-date guide to emulators, emulation configuration, and underlying technology technology https://pcgamingwiki.com/ >exhaustive game-by-game guides for compatibility, configuration, optimization, bugfixes, and quality-of-life mods/hacks for pc games of all ages

>mysterious plague ravages world >lockdown imposed >waves of unrest and rioting break out >fake war between america and china distracts from crisis >turns out it was all the the result of extradimensional zombie cthulhu Is CDDA the unintentional game of the year for 2020? Post-apocalyptic survival roguelike, get it here: https://cataclysmdda.org/ Also, get the only good tileset here: https://github.com/SomeDeadGuy/UndeadPeopleTileset
Can someone write a short starter's guide? I get into the game and have no clue what to do
While it's a bit outdated, the wiki is a useful aid, in particular there's a set of guides, such as this one about surviving through the first day: http://cddawiki.chezzo.com/cdda_wiki/index.php?title=The_First_Day Before that, remember to play the tutorial, to familiarize yourself with the UI.
After attempting to play the game properly like a fuckin dumbass I made a throwaway character as a half-fish mutant, hijacked a military humvee with a full tank of gas and did doughnuts in a dead suburb running over zombies, mutants and warlocks until I smashed into a church dying instantly. CDDA was my first roguelike and it absolutely hooked me for a year. I would probably still play it if I had the time.
