The Sega System

DescriptionShinobi is a series of hack-and-slash action video games created by Sega. The ninja Joe Musashi is the protagonist of the original series of games. The first Shinobi game was released in 1987 for arcades and has since featured in a dozen other Shinobi titles


excellent game
SEGA was so good back then


the only games I had as a kid were phantasy star 4 (never heard of the other games) and battle toads with X-Men characteristics.

Anybody experienced with Dungeons and Dragons that can help me with some worldbuilding?

I want to integrate Gnomes into my world, and the 5e (inb4) source book says they have very tight-knit communities, so I want to make them Communists, but I'm a brainlet and I don't know what a medieval-esque Communist society would look like.

I think this thread was accidentally posted to /hobby/ then moved here.


unless you're using magic to replace industrial technology, it would be difficult to actually produce communism in a medieval setting. however, you can look at the peasant republics (https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauernrepublik hopefully you can read german, if not maybe you can find an english language source by googling peasant republic or Dithmarschen). Another possibility would be to work from tribal societies (for example, arabian peninsula before the saudis united it). In neither case are we talking about "communist societies" per se, but given the usual setting of medieval fantasy id say these two would be suitable stand-ins for communism, given some tweaking.


Good post. I'm making a marxist fantasy setting too and this is good advice.


One of the biggest hurdles to a medieval communist revolution I think is the fact that peasants are just about the opposite of a revolutionary class. There's something about rural life that does not produce revolutionaries and progressive, but rather reactionaries. Only when you have cities with massive populations, thus having created the proletariat, does it become more possible.

Examples like the European Peasant republics aren't really revolutionary in actuality, they merely lacked feudalism because they were too poor and small, but they weren't actively ideologically upholding this, which is clear from how over time even Dithmarschen developed its own nobility from the families of the people who kept increasingly more often getting elected to be judges.

Then again, maybe some maoist can teach me something I don't know about peasants and revolution.


halflings can be eco-anarchists, since they're tolkien's ideal society

Oh also while I like the mental voices, some of the writing for it (Especially the nighttime, or waking monologues) super cringe and poorly written.


>(Such as the underground bitch with the radio, secret old commie ending, the conflict between Union and wild pines ends with a shootout)
Yeah none of these are nonsequiturs


They have no pre basis in the story. With the exception of the shootout.

one can hope


Yeah, there's a balance which is cool. It'd hardly be an RPG if they'd lock you into certain role but discovering Harry's past that obviously impacts the way people perceive him as you get through the game is a huge part of the experience as opposed to other RPGs, even when they try to do something similar (Fallout games, Mass Effect to some extent).

What does this mean? Of course it's going to be a cosmetic difference. It's a video game. People living or dying, loving or hating you, helping you or getting in your way, it's all cosmetic if you want to look at it that way.

>you can get to the end of the game pretty much whatever you do, sure, but there's definitely 'better' and 'worse' outcomes
That was my point. Being able to "get through it" despite some major fuckups is painfully absent from most games. Pathologic, Deus Ex and to a veeery small extent Mass Effect are the only franchises I've encountered that really strive to make failure a part of the narrative instead of just hitting you with a Game Over and having you try again. Maybe I'm forgetting some or I'm just not as well-versed in RPGs as I think but it never hit me with such a feeling of immersion as while playing through those 3 series.

It's comfy if you were raised as a console kiddie. I mean like imagine playing Halo with keyboard.


Are you implying that for a typical 3D game with strong emphasis on aiming precision and timing, a keyboard where directional input is typically formed by four binary inputs on two axes (total 8 directions), is more appropriate than a controller where the same directional input is formed by non-binary joysticks?
t. haven't played with a controller for around 8 years


One of PC's inputs may indeed be digital, but mouse control is in general so much more precise and accurate for camera control that it overcomes all the advantages of two analog sticks.

Western developers focused on developing games for PC and for an audience of turbo nerds while japanese consoles conquered normie minds.
I actually feel sad that western games got overshadowed by japanese games until the late 90's.

You should see the levels of cringe coming from Spanish Kojima cocksuckers. The extra layer of language barrier makes it even worse somehow.

Are you excited for the sequel to the game that Finally Took A Stance Against Capital by having every NPC horrified at violence against the bourgeoisie, communism not mentioned a single time and the best ending being a slight tax on the wealthy?

>Ow comparing Fallout 3
take that back Fallout 3 is best


the fuck you mean best ending being tax on the wealthy? I unified both oppositions and in the final battle headshot the idiotic capitalist for insulting someone with a gun


tho it does suffer from th same problem as a lot of anticapitalist media does wich is criticising neoliberalism and late stage capitalism without offering a radical solution and instead either they admit the world sucks but nothing changes, the world goes back into a socdem status quo or the very start of a revolution is hinted


also the socdem statusnquo is marginally better

We have a HoI4 thread but why not just have a Grand Strategy general thread? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people here who play the other grand stratgy games/think hoi4 is too dumbed down shit. Plus /gsg/ on 4chan is infected with /pol/yps and I really want an alternative place to discuss the games. So what's everyone been playing? Here's the results of my recent Serbia to Yugoslavia campaign.

The teases about USSR have shown at least half the Soviet focus tree being alternative history about Trotsky.


That sounds pretty cool to me. Also that's exaggeration, we just haven't seen the other alternative candidate yet.
