>>6851 Even reddit despises this game fam.
>>6851 Because of trans baiting and feminism garbage. It wasn't as bad as they make it sound, but frankly, with all the garbage being shoveled out in mass media, at this point people are growing MORE intolerant of that crap because it's screaming "Be tolerant bigot!" at people. An example is the years of shitty Mary-Sueshit and feminist liberalism in movies like the Star Wars Sequels and the Ghostbusters 2016 and Captain Marvel and other trash, which made people absolutely detest any hints of that in the Solo movie, despite the feminist and liberalism being toned down, because at this point people are sick of seeing it to the point of raging out at the slightest hint. TL;DR: Excessive overexposure to liberalism has made most people have a hairtrigger against anything remotely feminist. Ironically this also means that merely mediocre movies with female leads are getting flak because people just don't want to even hear it. Also Naughty Dog literally fired a female game developer who created the franchise because she was against several of the "creative decisions" inserted into the game, so it's blatantly hypocritical too.
>>2666 Upon reflection I think they were trying to pull an Itachi or Pain, and convey the "revenge and hatred affects everyone, and that if you kill someone in revenge you are only continuing a cycle of hatred" but they fucked it up completely, so you only notice this if you disregard some dumb shit.
>>6851 And I'm surprised that you're surprised that 4chan hates everything under the sun. But in this case, the only people who will probably defend this dumpster fire are either completely braindead Sony zealots or more likely knee-jerking radlibs/EsJayDubyas.
>>2662 Yeah, this piss me off. They could have given a way to be complete pacifist or stop being preachy about violence in games, just don’t have it both ways. But in the end since they’re lazy corporate fucks that couldn’t even care enough to pay their workers a decent livable wage, they just copied the first game wholesale and added some better gore graphics. Dishonored is still the only action game that do this right, where the world just go to shit when you decide to be a murderous psychopath.

Why are these games just babysitters for the absolute scum of the earth? They're such a hyper-commodified skinner box, being addicted to one is like being caught in a perpetual downwards mental health spiral. What the fuck is wrong with these games and what the fuck is wrong with the people who play them?

>>4157 >The ongoing narrative for Defense of the Ancients is that a series of amateur content creators with limited programming experience and few financial resources created a Warcraft III map that was not only better than Warcraft III, but surpassed the collective efforts of a billion-dollar videogame industry and its world-class game creators. A story that should set off red flags in the mind of any reasonable person has become a rallying cry for transformative change in the world of videogames. <hurr only BIG COMPANIES can make good games
>>4157 interesting read, thanks
>>6693 This article was made during the height of the Obama spectacle, when neoliberalism wasn't even questioned and the alt-right was merely an egg.
>>4157 This is a pretty good read. Partly because my friends have been playing dota during lockdown and I didn't enjoy playing it much.
>>4157 So badly written and meandering I couldn't power through it, though there were some interesting points in the parts I read. Shame because I was looking forward to some insights. t. longtime dota player, quit a couple years ago

Don't see a thread for this game, let's have one.
2 posts omitted.
>>6493 are there any good guides (maybe in video format) for this game i have some troubles getting started
>>6551 The problem was heating. I don't remember the specifics but it was either a lack of coal, a lack of workers, or both. Basically everyone froze to death. >>6552 There are some YouTube channels linked form the main site at least: https://www.sovietrepublic.net/ In my most recent game I went immediately for setting up a petroleum industry. Exporting fuel and bitumen by train is very profitable, at least in the 60's. I invested all of the initial 1M₽ and $1M in setting it up, had 1.5M₽ in profit one year later. Set up a chemical and a plastic plant, then electronic components. I think I'll build an electronics assembly factory next, and start exporting electronics. I just need to figure out how to load a train car with the things. Rail warehouse doesn't seem to work for electronic components at least.
I tried it a bit back and it felt too unfinished. I’ve been watching it but it still seems a bit too crusty for me to seriously get into it yet.
>>6796 It needs something to do. Like you get production goals from Komintern or something. Global events are in the pipeline, so maybe we'll see a geopolitics mechanism.
I like what I've played, but I'm waiting for a campaign or some kind of challenges.

Fallout 4 Minutemen Dilemma 11/13/2020 (Fri) 03:12:29 No. 6323 [Reply]
I'm currently replaying Fallout 4 in survival difficulty with a fuckton of mods and I got to say it's pretty fun, I also learnt to enjoy more what stories are told by the environment even if the actual writing is still awful. But recently I discovered this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minutemen_(anti-Communist_organization) So what the fuck is up here, we are meant be the leader of the minutemen (out of nowhere) in a game clearly made up of 50' and 60' references, there's no way the creators did not know about this (or is there? I mean the plot is retarded). Does Preston even know he's black?? Anyway I was building homes and infrastructures for the working men and women of the commonwealth but now I don't know what to think. Am I the bad guy? There's not even an anarchist faction similar to the followers of the apocalypse I could go with in this game. Should I just become a raider and wait for Caesar to rebuild the productive forces?

I guess this is the fallout general now I am playing a heavily modded version of Fallout:DUST after a fun playthrough of the successor prequel mod on Fallout 4 (confusing, I know) in Fallout:FROST. Doing an NCR deserter, and he has gone from a (fairly) badass looking trooper to having his own custom (and slightly defaced) ranger armor.
>>6332 Tbh given everything we see of the minutemen there’s a near 100% chance that the intent was for the MM to be LARPers of the original Minutemen of the Revolutionary War. The first place we meet them is literally a broken down memorial to the war...
>>6491 well there would not really be a revolutionary war to fight, unless they would want to rewrite the institute from what they did in Fallout 3 or rewrite the BoS to be psuedo-Redcoats (which would both be retarded, and early concept art shows a lot of the BoS and Minutememes fighting together, so it would have probably been the institute if anything). I think the Minutemen as a title was more just a way to reinforce how the remains of the US still has enough ideological sway to influence how the post-war people feel about themselves and identify by, in the same way the New California Republic is. In fact really the only factions to ever really form a unique identity largely divergent from the ideas of America are the Followers of the Apocalypse and the BoS (and also Caesar's Legion but they copied Rome so it doesn't count).
(1.16 MB 1177x611 indeed.png)
>>6487 Not the comrade you're replying to but the based realpolitik chaos ending is helping the NCR at first. Seeing how the NCR deals with dissidents. The counterattack on the prison, the treatment of westside, war crimes against the Khans etc and then honoring the truce with the Legion once you hit the strip. Go see what Caesar has to say, fix their howitzer and leave once you upgrade the robots. He'll ask you to kill House. Humor him and leave to grab Boone. Come back to the fort, go in guns blazing a kill Caesar. Go back to the Strip and kill House anyways to lowkey install Yes Man. Help the NCR after to an extent. Peacefully resolve tensions in Freeside. We don't need more good proles dead over diplomatic bullshit. Lie to Moore and get the Omertas the best chlorine caps can buy. Get them to resume business with Mick to get illegal weapons flowing into the Strip. When the time comes they'll fuck up the closet cannibals, the bossless Chairmen and the NCR embassy in one swoop. At this point the NCR glowies will tell you to dispose of the BoS but that's up to you. You can have them for an alliance but it dissolves. Enclave? They're remnants so up to you who they support. At this point foil the Legion's assassination attempt on Kimball and then kill him yourself. Congratulations you are a anarchist, communist and a traitor to the western states of the wasteland. The Kings are likely to defend inner Vegas and the wannabe mobster Omertas are pushovers with the people's robotic muscle. Useful idiots, drug addicts and statists are no match for a handloaded .45-70. The only friends you can trust in the Mojave is a big iron and the cigarette on your lip.
I'm playing Fallout 4 for the first time now and it's kinda dull. Hate the talking protagonist.

why the FUCK is Oblivion/Morrowind so FUCKING DIFFICULT? Anonymous Gamer 04/02/2020 (Thu) 01:59:25 No. 78 [Reply]
Seriously, I made an unarmed khajiit adept in theft and other based shit. I did a bunch of theifs guild shit and did a bunch of fighters guild shit. I can finally kill enemies and I was finally feeling happy. I went to this cave near caldera that had a bunch of Dedra worshipers in it, I guess cause there was some random book of dedra in there. I made it to level 8 and I walk outside and I am immediantly bombsarded by a fucking clif rider and two fucking alits and now I am stuck in this fucking gay ass cave and have no idea what to do now. I tried running and I finally was making it back into a fucking city AND THEN THE FUCKING GAME CRASHED ==WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK MORROWIND? HOW THE FUCK DID ANYONE EVER PLACE THIS GOD DAMN SHIT!? I am fucking pissed beyond all belieF!!! rRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Is it? I found Skyrim ridiculously easy and brainless.
On that note of the game crashing, what is the most unstable game you've ever played, /games/? It's probably KotoR 2 for me: Every door loading screen in the first city (the terraforming station) has a 40% chance to crash you. Every cinematic (which get scaled down to like 200x400p) has a 50% chance to crash you. Every time you use space travel its like 90% chance to crash you. Also KotoR 1 also deserves a shout out, as the string of different cinematics after Bastila bossfight each have a huge fucking chance to crash, meaning you have to do the boss 10 times.
>>6672 Actually, now that I think about it, it was that bad on Windows 7. I dread to think what it would be like on 10.
Morrowind isn't particularly difficult, it's just you. I could play through it without problems and I'm legit retarded when it comes to games that aren't turnbased.
