It always bothered me how In The Pale Moonlight was resolved. I know it's considered one of the best DS9 episodes, but it's literally Sisko doing an American-style false flag and justifying it to himself in the end. This is especially concerning because this in the context of it being revealed that the first Iraq War was based on a staged false-flag.

Has anybody watched Star Trek Lower decks ?
Can anybody explain who the Paklets are supposed to be, they seem to become the main foe of the show ?

They used to be a weak species that only had tiny ships without warp, but now they have scavenged or looted warp-drive, good weapons and a bunch of other stuff. Their ships are large and powerful now. They also are extremely dumb while somehow being very cunning, and able to jeryrig starships from cross species hardware. ( i guess that's all plug & play ) And their social hierarchies are based on who wears the largest hat or helmet. They have casual revolutions but that only changes who wears the biggest hat. They have melted faces but they can survive hard vacuum.

Here's a few videos about them.

Is this species intended for symbolism or not ?


their story sounds like a budget Klingon.
the Klingons recieved their ships and weaponry through war with an imperialist "outsider". Is was through this brief conflict that the Klingons were able to reverse engineer their warpdrive, making them an intergallactic powerhouse by the 14th century earth time
How Pakleds were able to become spacefarers with such limited capacity towards science, is beyond me.

>How Pakleds were able to become spacefarers with such limited capacity towards science, is beyond me.
Well apparently they don't build anything of their own and they don't reverse engineer stuff either, they just stick parts of other ships onto theirs, maybe they found super intelligent nanobots glue that makes technology go if you just stick it together without them understanding anything, or they are idiot savants that are really good at creating technology inter-compatibility matrices and nothing else.

Do you have an emulator for NES, anon?

[b]Mine Shaft[/b]: A very simple game, just push left or right as you descend. What's your score?

[b]Nova the Squirrel[/b]: Don't be put off by the picture of the lame title screen. This is a full-blown side-scrolling platform adventure that would haven been worthy of official publishing back in the day.

[b]Star Evil[/b]: I don't even.

[b]Get It![/b] is a very old-school game (the level = the screen). Catch items, avoid the baddies. http://www.gravelstudios.com/getit/ What I found very unusual about is that the speed of the player is the same as the speed of the items and enemies bouncing around. So my initial reaction was that it's "objectively" a design mistake, but a few minutes later I got into the flow of things. You just have to anticipate a bit how the things are bouncing. Also has a two-player mode!

Remember those dubious cartridges promising to contain a truckload of games? The promised number of games turned out to be a very postmodern way of counting, with different modes or levels of the same game being presented as two or three different games. Graphic assets and sound was also shared between the titles. In this wonderful tradition is [b]31 in 1 Real Game![/b] by, once again, the Mojon Twins, featuring utterly pointless low-res nudity (I'm not complaining) and parodies.
Download is right at the top of this list: http://www.nesworld.com/article.php?system=nes&data=neshomebrew I found Rendezvous and Zombie Calavera Prologue the most interesting.

One little thing that irks me about many homebrew titles is how moving diagonally works. They often just add together the movement of each axis, so you move faster diagonally. I'm pretty sure that's not how it works in real life… I also believe that the programmers of the old games back in the day usually took care to avoid that counter-intuitive issue. For example, your spaceship in R-Type does not move faster diagonally and the player can make more precise movements by hugging the left edge of the screen and pressing diagonally.


>It's just larping
We're talking about video games here, so I don't see why that's a problem, but I've got other points to make. Another thing I've noticed is that higher resolution makes the game a lot laggier. playing the game with the original resolution completely gets rid of the lag (but then the screen is tiny). it's not like the game looks any better, we still use the exact same sprite the only difference the higher resolution make is showing more of the map than you should actually be able to see, at time it even results in you being able to see a black void on the screen which you wouldn't be able to see in the original game.


I had a look at some other titles on there. [b]What Remains[/b] is a short 2019 "adventure" (or rather walking sim) set in 1986 with a plot like Captain Planet on cocaine. They did not try for a very authentic 1986 feel (for example, I don't think "paywalled" was a term in use back then). Got a few sensible chuckles out of me and the same number of eyeroll moments. This is really an actual piece of software that one could unironically label Cultural Marxism.


You are thinking about polygonal games. Original Fallout doesn't use polygons and isn't a first-person shooter. (And even with polygons it isn't always sensible to increase the framerate, since the shoddy programming practice of tying mechanics/physics to framerate which often happens with console games when there is no thinking ahead about potentially porting that to other platforms.)

Anyway, here's a new NES game: In [b]Böbl[/b], you play [i]fighting[/i] er trying to survive despite the [i]attacks[/i] existence of your enemies, which are all very hard edge, know what I'm saying. While playing, I often said out loud when dying: Ow, the edge! http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=19718

What if instead of landing in the burger heartland, Kal-El landed in the middle of the Soviet Union? What if instead of Ma and Pa Kent, the man of steel was raised by the other man of steel?In light of this thread >>>/leftypol/164364 I think it's time to storytime Superman Red Son. It's about 150 pages total, over 3 parts.

do they keep that horrible ending with the soviet union collapsing and luthor creating krypton?


No, Superman pretends to die while sending Braniac's ship into orbit and detonating it, while Luthor and Lois retire, leaving Jimmy Olson to be president and Superman hiding among the population of America.


sounds like the soviet union still collapses. mad cringe, and he lives in america? quad cringe!


It’s a problem with modern, early-2000 writers like Millar. They’re big fans of the type of assholes with guns rather than supes so they’ll wank those guys to oblivion while nerfing people like Superman. Only Morrison do it right.


I don't like OP superman but yeah, him being depowered and normies with guns facing off is ridiculous, Invincible sorta proved that.

We can watch stuff together on cytube. The nazis have their own channel, why shouldn't we?https://www.cytu.be/r/classwarRight now there are prolekult documentaries on, some Soviet kinos, random classics, basically stuff I could find on youtube. But I will be uploading movies as time goes on.>Why does it take long to upload a movie?Movies are hosted on google drive. Google has an algorithm that compares the hashes of uploaded videos to hashes of known pirated copies of movies. So public torrent releases that you find on rarbg and tpb get flagged quickly and removed. To avoid this, a downloaded movie has to be transcoded (I only have a 4c/4t ryzen 3200g). The movie is then uploaded to google drive (this is the part that takes the least amount of time) and once it is uploaded Google has to process the video so that it can be streamed/watched (this can take anywhere from an hour to a day).Feel free to suggest movies and shows you'd like to see and I will slowly add them.If you register your nick with cytube (no email required, just username and password) I'll make you a mod so that you can adjust the playlist, change movies, etc.


If you wish to upload movies and add them you can!How to:>download a movie>transcode (usually it is enough to just do a two-pass 1:1 transcode and copy the audio)>upload to google drive> "Get shareable link" from file>add to cytubeFree google accounts come with 15gb storage, you can create as many accounts as you want.

This Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made. It is pure кино and deeply anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-USA. It's about a Soviet spy sabotaging peace talks between the OSS and Himmler (to allow the USA and Nazi Germany to team up on the USSR). It was made at the request of the head of the KGB. The tension and drama in this show is outstanding!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhgXs_iFRs&list=PLHiAMOiVIvsD2u8g0RLwvdRScEe9yiUr5&index=2&t=0s

Because any social commntary about Russia or in Russia is automatically "Stalin bad" in their propaganda addled minds.


Yup. Still, Danelia is a great director. Did you watch Афоня movie? I personally found it to be a great piece of soc realism.

If people buy stuff from the government with money and production is based on what sells, then you are basically talking about one big monopoly conglomerate that is also the government. It's kind of right but highlights that Filteries has other problems, like not accounting for the mode of production.
