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.
>>5346 Pretty much all popular JRPGs were influenced by Wizardry.
>>5350 I am aware of that.
>>5360 Sorry, didn't mean to mansplain
>>5322 GOOD post.

>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

Hopefully the standards of prize events in the Loicenced Kingdom will continue being irrelevant within the general industry as companies are likely perceptive to the detrimental risk to the appeal of their goods that following such a framework would possibly bring.

Can someone explain to me what the fuck Warframe is about? It's setting, plot and characters? Is it cyberpunk or something cyborg fetishism or something else?

Aren't video games a most perfect realization of the spectacle? I fail to think of anything which has made a "concrete inversion of life" so effectively as video games. More than this it seems to exhaust all who play them of the tribulations of life there by converting them into the most significant population of last men to date. Recognizing this it follows that video games are only useful to the extent to which we can make games capable of waking their viewer to the theft of their life by the bourgeoisie, both in terms of surplus value extraction, and in terms of the spectacle.

It's entirely possible that many here could team up to make a game capable of waking its viewers to the theft of their life by the bourgeoisie, both in terms of surplus value extraction, and in terms of the spectacle. While making a quality 3D game is much more challenging it is possible to get good results with GPL engines as that screen shot shows. Even if nothing else it is a productive direction for leftists with this affliction to pursue, and on a personal level resist the spectacle and alienation.

Any ideas for plot or mechanics of a game of this sort?

>>5393 there are lots of phone emulators for Gameboy Advance/Nintendo DS games, I'd look into those if you wanted a proper game to play
>>5393 >>5880 >>5940 >>5954 thanks yall, i do have emulators on my phone, i was (at the time) just looking for games like zombieville, stuff that takes nearly no brainpower to play >>5875 honestly not a fan of the developer if youre looking for a new "good" grand strategy game id recommend age of civilizations 2 >>5393 also i replayed that game i mentioned and it was actually super based, goes through the stages of civilization the right war

Opinions on RimWorld? Not OP 10/16/2020 (Fri) 20:02:25 No. 5290 [Reply]
I think it's a really good game about managing a small community of individuals with different skills, needs and personalities. Warfare in RimWorld is fucking terrifying because every warrior is a guy you have spent hours with, you understand their importance, you know of their relationships, you understand their personalities and if they die theres a true sense or loss there. Vanilla is pretty barren, but there are excellent mods for this. Much recommended for any leftyanon

isn’t this just DF for casuals?
>>6560 Yes, but also with a bigger emphasis on base deffence
>>5290 Rimjob
>>6560 Not really, the two have a similar premise but focus on completely different things. Dwarf Fortress is a simulation of a fantasy world and Rimworld is more "arcadey" if that makes sense.

Anybody play Wreckfest? One of the only newer racing games I've liked
What's so great about it?
>>6558 My limousine for example, soft body physics, relatively good destruction and tricky handling make you want come back for more. Also online play is good from my experience. You could join a server and BTFO the serious racers by having all the lads choose school buses. At least until they vote to kick the lot of you lol

>>6547 Yes, it's actually the only racing game in my steam library. Reminder that real men play with realistic damage in all modes.

Hello everyone, after some serious temptation due to watching various militaria channels for some months I think I'm gonna finally jump on the bandwagon and try WT/WoT. Does anyone have experience with these kind of games? How badly exactly am I gonna get fucked by premium/longtime players? I did some searches and it seems most people agree that WT is much more realistic and simulator-y than WoT which is good cause I'd like to try realism. So, that's the one I'm downloading right now, but does anyone else have a different opinion on it? In addition, I know there's probably a huge amount of affiliate new member deals out there but does anyone know what one is the best I can use currently, ideally linked to a good YT channel that deserves it? If not I can just search for it but hey. General advice for getting started (or why I shouldn't)?

>>6514 after WT I can never play a tank or plane game with healthbars.
>>6516 Eh, it wouldn't alleviate the main thing with cumbersome metal boxes chugging slowly until they happen to behind someone or be behind someone themselves. There's no outplaying or skill beside the ability to outdrive and not be outdriven at extremely low speeds and knowing all the camper spots. Except in this proposed gamemode it would be even more dumbed down. Tanks just can't be fun not in the game, not in real life.

I'm curious, if the USSR was still around, assuming it would still exist, how different would WoT be? (Considering it was made in Belarus)
>>6548 Assuming that it gets created in the first place, nothing much TBH.
