Sterdust and liberalism in gaming journos Comrade 07/15/2020 (Wed) 13:51:38 No. 2904 [Reply]
Recently people like Sterling and Schreier actually made a lot of shit that actually came close to class concious. Especially about gaming escapism and the kind of "anti-political" hypocrite mentality, showing that most rightoid actually DOES want politics in their games, but their kind of politics like having CoD imperialism simulator and America wank. Like this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q2ibrU5Xpg >The "it's optional" reasoning is only applicaple to consummer products like games but not the entire system of capitalism >every criticism exist in its own bubble is practically applicabe to most defenders of neoliberalism Why can't these people just connect the dots and see all of this is a systematic problem with capitalism itself? Or do they actually know it but choose to remain silent because themselves are afraid of alienating the normies?

Minecraft Server Comrade 10/09/2020 (Fri) 12:44:00 No. 5010 [Reply] [Last]
UPDATE Server is up. Server IP is: Server Name is: BunkerHell MAKE SURE YOU LAUNCH MINECRAFT VIA THE CRACKPACK 3 MODPACK! https://ufile.io/37ru6kdy You should be able to download them, extract and plop them into MultiMC. I'm going to have a shitton of free time over the next few months and I'm thinking about hosting a new Leftypol Minecraft server. Had some experience back in the day hosting factions based servers on the mindcrack modpack. I'm a little rusty but I should be able to pick it all up again reasonably fast. Right now I'm leaning towards a factions based server (maybe with factions maybe based on lefty ideologies, or people could just sort themselves into teams or w/e) a tech-y modpack based on PVP and a limited mapsize - ideally a large, continent sized island with limited resources and with borders around it so there is some competition for resources (hopefully creating incentive for political alliances and conflict). I'll try to find a plugin which allows physical territory claiming/restricts harvesting of resources on non territory so expanding, building outposts, trade between factions and etc would be encouraged. Nuclear power, high-tech weapons/defense & industry mods are of course a must. Hardcore food/agriculture mods may also be added so there is a need to diversify agriculture/food production and encourage large teams. I'm willing to put down the money for a decent server and can probably maintain it for a while, possibly indefinitely although that all depends on interest in the idea. Who here would be interested in a set up like this? If I can get a dozen or so people interested at first I'm willing to put the money and time in ASAP, although obviously I'd be willing to invest more money/time if the playerbase is larger. Server will ofc be free, no pay to win/eshop garbage & ideally open to pirated copies.

Anyone have thoughts on the SevTech Ages modpack?
Why are there like 3-4 minecraft threads on the board, and all of them with collectively less than 100 posts?

>>3375 Also that was on by default, and done deceitfully, rather than having some UI indication such as crosshair/weapon movement. On top of that and regen health, I suppose there's also 2-weapon limit and mud-slow movement. But perhaps worst of all is that pretty early in development Halo pretty obviously became one of if not THE headline launch title for the system. So redesigning the controller to accommodate Halo (and the trend of other games using the right thumbstick for camera/aim control) with some kind of trackball, motion aiming, or other higher-precision input could've and should've been done. Especially since Microsoft itself already had experience with all these technologies through their Sidewinder brand.
>>3376 >if we do our job well, you don't have any idea this is going on Well they really fucked up then, because coming off of hardcore Perfect Dark sessions (where you intentionally disable autoaim so you can get headshots easier) I knew something was fucked with the aiming the very first day I played Halo.

But Metroid Fusion is good.
>>6592 What's good about it? Is it the stiff controls that gimp sequence breaking, the dumb gimmicky bosses, the extreme linearity and story railroading, the constant interruptions for unskippable story exposition, the half-assed shoehorned survival horror segments... Where's the good stuff?

/leftypol/ Plays Together Comrade 11/22/2020 (Sun) 12:22:39 No. 6521 [Reply]
Enough of single-game and single-player threads, we're doing One Big Thread for games to play together! Suggest games to play, say what games you like/have, et cetera, here. As OP I'll just put this chart I made years ago on old leftypol. My suggestions are; Wargame: EE/AB/RD Battlefield something Hearts of Iron Red Orchestra/Rising Storm Minecraft (not for me but I know a lot of people like it) Not like it's mandatory to play a WW2/Cold War/Modern war game but just the first things that come to mind. What do you like to play anon?

Why is the RPGcodex so reactionary? Comrade 10/15/2020 (Thu) 03:08:54 No. 5206 [Reply]
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.

I don't know, but if anyone knows of another site with a decent number of hardcore Wizardry fans then please let me know. It's one of the greatest video game franchises ever and it seems like all the fans are Japanese.

>Game features some type of Kalashnikov assault rifle and an SVD as available weapons >They're inexplicably the weakest, shittiest weapons in their categories whereas some type of NATO or Amerifat weapon is the strongest The only series I can think of that doesn't do that is STALKER, where the SVD actually owns. On a similar note: >Fire a shotgun >It has an effective range of like 10 feet STALKER also thankfully averts this, as does Far Cry 3 from what I recall.

>>3943 The main appeal is a shitload of hidden triggers which change a myriad of things, your actions having direct impact and having ripples across the game world. The whole cryptic atmosphere was the main draw, before it got datamined to all hell. The only other game that did something like this was probably Silent Hill 2.
>>3409 I don't mind this trope if "cursed/evil" items, enchantments/magic, etc actually have a negative aspect to your character using them. Then it becomes a question of is the risk/benefit worth it? Also "evil" stuff that is just better is boring. What's the point of it being evil then?
>>3941 Do you think Deltarune will be any better? I like what I've seen so far, despite my opinions on Undertale being mostly mixed. Only part of it is out so hard to judge I guess.

>>3952 >Do you think Deltarune will be any better? I don't really trust Toby Fox on that regard, but he'll probably make some really nice tunes and cute characters for porn artists to slave over for years to come along the way so i don't care.
the most annoying cliche is the Soviets being caricatures of evil and also incompetent AF for no fucking reason.

Yeah I don't want more missions of killing Soviet soldiers and protecting the based mujahideen thx. MGS was always shit
>>3153 Yeah you can tell the extent of Kojimmy's hollywood poisoning on its portrayal of russians in these games. A russian Hind-D in MGS1 being in an American military base to serve as a boss fight for no reason. The enemy soldiers in MGS2 are russian despite both the tanker and the plant being american property located in fucking NYC. MGS3 features soviets as enemies and has the KGB and GRU fighting each other in gunfights wtf? Also Volgin is by far the most deranged villain the series bar none and he happens to be soviet russian hmm curious. PW Zadornov was a complete caricature but I'll give that a slight pass because everything in that game was absurd. Granted, americans tend to serve as "bigger" badguys but that's always portrayed as a twist. were there any russians in MGS4? I kinda deleted that game from my mind
