>>6429 Wait, holy shit, I just realized that the good ending is actually the most based one as well. I always thought that the implication was that after closing the Demichev loop you "go back to normal" with minimal changes, but no, the ending clearly implies that the Soviet Union won the Cold War under Barisov.
>>6433 it's also the biggest kino, it starts off same as the intro except all the words that were in english in the intro are now in russian and even though things sorta look the same they really aren't. and nobody even pretends it's weird, which means only one thing: the soviet union didn't win the cold war, because there was never a cold war. it won by default through world communism, thus achieving as of yet unheard of levels of based
>>6435 Still fucking pissed that the game got treated like shit by activision. A lot of the devblog can still be found on Raven’s old site which details a lot more story elements and concepts that never got into the game itself due to corporate bullshitery. It’s a goddamn shame. Also they also has the coolest minigun ever, which only have a single bullet but rewind time each time it fire to shoot it again and again.

Fall Guys, Among Us, Helltaker Comrade 10/02/2020 (Fri) 02:49:46 No. 4849 [Reply]
Seems like the trends of this year is going by real fucking fast. It hasn't even been a month before fall guys was on the airwaves and now it's Among Us. It seems like the trendy shit to be into today in the vidya game sphere seems to be moving at a faster and faster pace day by day.

among us has more longevity than fall guys. sure its a trend but you can't deny that they absolutely hit on something
Helltaker was never really a big thing, only in like super weeb spaces.
fallguys is literally just counterstrike deathrun cartoony style and among us is like jackbox push the button, no wonder why i feel like everything is recycled

I just played INSIDE and I want more games like it. Not gameplay but subject matter, themes, mood, etc. What are the best games involving secret bases, shady experiments, working in the shadows, etc?
First for Deus Ex, obviously.
Metal Gear!
Perfect Dark
XCOM kinda?

What are you playing/running/home-brewing?

It's insanely unbalanced (caster supremacy is a much bigger problem than in 5e), and while it has a lot of options (unlike 5e), 90% of those options are shit. But here, I'll give you the advantages of 5e: <By far the most popular game; probably over 90% of all games are 5e, so you'll never have trouble finding a group <Very beginner friendly

>>6339 Even as someone who simps for 3.5, I will tell you that it's not exactly an intuitive system or anything. I just like it because of it's "intangibles" and the fact that it's a system with a lot of homebrew and a playerbase (nowadays) that will usually accept some version of homebrewing. Basically it's an oldfag haven, the same reason why people play the older versions of dnd

Hidden Agenda: 1988 - Open challange to /games/ edition Fulcrum#q3qQMq 11/10/2020 (Tue) 20:11:26 No. 6276 [Reply]
Hidden Agenda is a Latin American post-revolutionary politics simulator. It is very old and very little info exists about this game. Also, /games/ it self is a bit boring right now. So I declare a challenge: Come and beat my results OR, discover new and interesting paths in the game OR break the game and rip it apart, to discover all that it hides Post your discoveries ITT The game can be found here: https://www.myabandonware.com/game/hidden-agenda-ge#download Download the DOS version as the emulator one has a game-breaking bug. For all the comrades that might be intimidated by it being a dinosaur, follow these tips: To use it, download DOS BOX: https://www.dosbox.com/ To launch, start DOS, and type in: 1) mount [disk with savefile]: [file location] 2) [disk with savefile]:

>>6276 I find it a very interesting game. It was definitely made by some people who had a lot of knowledge about politics and Latin America, although they were biased on certain aspects. A left-winger play was all about trial and error. They suggested you to make a lot of policies they later came to regret, did a 180° on them or merely a 90° and at best you wasted a lot of time with them and at worst unnecessarily antagonised some people. But there is a trick. If you ask the right people, they will get you instantly where the left-wingers will end most of the time anyways. Finding these shortcuts at the right time is the way to success here. And I was very pissed that I need to play it at least thrice, because you had 4 positions but only 3 left-wingers to place them there. The centrists on the other hand were indecisive cowards. They had the right approach but at the last minute, pussied out and reset everything and you ended up which ended up with many dead innocents as a consequence, even with some of the advisors, like the nun who was murdered by blowtorch Bob, because you made moves against him but withdrew at the last second, giving him the time to carry out revenge. That's compromise seeking liberals in a nutshell here. Even Disco Elysium makes fun of that. And then the right-wingers. I have no idea what they are all about, except business and elite sponsorship, but I never came far with these guys because I either ended up being revolted or all my right-wing ministers withdrew, lmao. Guess kinda realistic, assuming you have little US support. I heard they use this game to teach rookie diplomats and CIA agent about politics, lmao. They were kinda biased when it came to religion, since all religious figures (nun, priest) were all about human rights. I guess the liberation theology was bigger than Jesus in Chimerica, but then again it was good that it was represented, but they should've put shady Wojtyłaists in there as well, showing that the church was not just all liberation theology and that they were willing to work with whatever fascist regime there was as long as it was against communism. Yeah and the aspect where conservatives were willing to work with communists to get rid of a fascist regime is just bullshit. The old presidente was supposedly so unpopular that they were willing to do just that, yeah right.
You can also play it on your web browser, I had no bugs or problems with it. Anyways I tried to go full communist but the game kinda forces you to be a centrist cuck if you don't want to get coup'd or get sanctions up your ass. I guess it's cool since it adds realism but is there any game where I can create my perfect Gay Luxury Communism world?

How the fuck do you play pic related? My SU collapsed in 86 after going full stalinist

>>2496 Make them go reformist, which will end up in Tianamen. If you are still communist, you automatically get Xinjiang-Uyguristan under your influence. You can get Tibet through a mouseclick and the rest of China through event.
>>2509 You could, but it's incredibly hard
>>2509 >where you can save the USSR In Mao yes, in Ostalgie, no matter what you do, you end up with a reformatory mess, something even GKChP will not be able to fix it. Gorbachov in Ostalgie is the all powerful antagonist.
>>2506 This. Yeltsin & friends are basically super-opportunists who will do their best to undermine your authority, even if you are ideologically on their side or close enough. Kick Yeltsin out, then you can reform.
>>2509 >then Ostalgie is the ultimate wet dream >where you can save the USSR you can not, no matte how you play it >the socialist block which is very hard to do and you there are chances you may lose Poland, Hungary and Romania along the way, which puts an even more severe dent in you economy >win in Afghanistan you either use special agents and turn it reformist or convince the entire Warsaw Pact and turn is socialist. It is very expensive and the WP option is only effective as long as you keep them all in the actual bloc. All for little reward in the end, since all you get is a contract, which is nice to have, but considering the effort, too little. But then again, whatever keeps the SocCamp stable. >organize coup d'etats acrosss the world You turn Algeria and Nepal reformist, Ethiopia socialist and Somalia nothing at all to gain exclusive access to their resources You meddle in Laos (I never got this, what did that guy do to you) and Ireland after you researched the third (out of three) security tech, with severe diplomatic cost. And through events Yemen and Iraq (or not assuming you followed the chains of event) and Romania if you are not Romania (fuck Chao). Sri Lanka too, but aside from a beautiful dot, you get nothing. Oh and you can assassinate Deng, but that was by popular demand. But aside from China all these countries were kinda instable to begin with. >and be a major game changer in foreign elections while playing for fucking Albania or Bulgaria Japan (with pre-investment), Greece, India, Nicaragua and South Korea (only as DPRK) and the reformist turned GDR. The three in the middle were rather close cases irl, but then again you have very limited options here as well. And then again no matter which of the 10 available countries you pick, you will never be able to prevent a nationalist victory in Yugoslavia and save the country. Where the devs actually goofed is Albania helping out Milosevic. Specifically if you play a benevolent Albania, that guy is still an ass to you. >(!) just for two years (!!!)
