File: 1608528117995.png ( 1.15 MB , 1800x1373 , Equestria at War Canterlot.png )


Who is your favourite nation in the best HOI4 total conversion? What paths do you think are best? Or anything else?

I just played through the Pax Chrystalia content last week, it was pretty fun, though I should have gone after Equestria quicker rather than taking the time to knock out all the other nations in Equus, then I would have had more options as Manehattan for expansion.

Also feel free to share any other pony related stuff, longplays, et cetera.

Kodėl tavo bronių mod'e yra gėjiški poniai integralistai su mano šalies reakcionierių teroristų vardais ir estetika, Seimūrai?
Tai turbūt šitaip juodžkiai jaučiasi girdėdami baltus raper'ius


Because Equestria at War is essentially "My Little Pony suffers from their own WW1", and all that it entails.

Although if their is one thing that kinda should be remedied (although it mostly refers to early content), was pushing RL personalities into the mod, i.e. there is a horse Oswald Mosley, a griffon Mussolini, and Karl Marx is called Caramel Marks. The weirdest result of it is Stalin, who exists as one of the founders of Communism in the lore (as Steel Stallion, judging from the name) and as an actual leader in a peasant republic, who comes to power in completely different way opposed to RL, has two expies, and both are completely torn out their context, making their inclusion nothing more than aesthetic.


Most countries are a mishmash of cultures/histories, Longsword who I was playing as is the rough history of Nazi-occupied Lithuania, with names/locations based on Finnish. Apparently.

To be more exact, Equus is more analogous to WW2, with Olenia representing France/Czechoslovakia/Poland and Equestria as the USSR, whereas the conflicts on Griffonia are somewhat analogous to victorian-WW1 era wars of conquest with various other stuff thrown in.

Which switch games should I get?

Hol up… Are you saying Pokemon has been remade [b]two[/b] times now? I was not aware of this absolute creativity vacuum.


What are the chances of random Japanese otome games for the Switch being uploaded online? I still haven't downloaded a Switch emulator so I have no idea how many pirated games there are. But there's an upcoming game I really want and it's a Japan-only Switch exclusive. Depending on the answer I might have to somehow import the cartridge in the future and share the game myself if it's even released physical.

And it was basically just made to complement Pokémon GO. Not only that, but it's lacking things from Yellow and FRLG (reminiscent of ORAS disappointment). As a coomer I would only play it because of the updated trainer designs.


Only plan on buying one once Metroid Prime 4 comes out

Is there a good modern bullet hell game that doesn’t have an anime aesthetic? It seems like they‘re all made for horny people now


I think you're all out of luck fam, the pandering has been completely out of control since the '00s.


Well, I can tell the picture is at least something Touhou related. However, I'm interested in Galshell 2. Thanks.


There's Steam Hearts and Yakouga too. Ero-STDs aren't too common because they don't usually work out well, going from a high octane shooting thrill to an abrupt H-scene for fapping.

any of you played this absolute banger yet? it's basically a planned economy simulator with city builder characteristics set in the 19th century. if you're a cockshott fan, this game is right up your alley since you're pretty much doing input-output planning using an extensive statistics screen as soon as you start getting into the late game.

also there's strikes and riots and the soundtrack during them is kinda based

somehow it still has no crack sadly




Can't pirate it, costs too much especially with dlc and I don't want to use ubishit launcher. But it does look enticing.


it's literally the only game i own on ubishit, got it on a sale during one of the dlc releases. no idea why this game in particular has no crack, crackwatch comments were full despair when an entire year passed without one. people who managed to get it on steam can probably still pirate the dlc

How do I get into these games?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I currently have a ps2 copy and can play on original hardware.

I just don't know how to play the game correctly if that makes sense, I have 2 characters that are over levelled and everyone else at a low level, pretty sure I'm doing it wrong


What happened to NIS?


unless ur super into tedious grinding dont bother

its cool for that but its just a huge grind to get results which is p lame

so forget it its a series for people who wanna spend a couple hundred hours doing the same thing per game

they started gating stuff behind paywalls made the games more casual with still a crazy amount of grind
stupid shit dude

Nah, I didn't play any of the games like this. Literally none of the games require farming to complete the basic story, though to be fair you have to play well to avoid farming completely.

The real epic farming is the end-game after the story, which I tried a bit in every game, but never got into.

The games hold their own with just the story content. Not that the writing is good, but the missions, mechanics and progression hold up. I mean, how cool is the stacking and throwing of units? How cool is "item world"? So many good little ideas.

Actually this is a valid way to play since you can stack tons of buffs on 1 unit (e.g. Laharl) and have him destroy the board. But having a varied party is more fun imo.


They were mismanaged, they had financial troubles, they refused to pay employees, they pivoted nickel-and-diming the games.

This is quite a big caveat. I've never even heard of them and I don't play my games under the supervision of spyware. There's a certain kind of person willing to install their spyware and it typically isn't someone with scruples in the quality of the games they play. Seems like everything on this list involves multiplayer. Tends to lower the bar for standards when you're playing with friends because just having their company can be enjoyable, even if the game is shit.

wtf is this shit


but gamedev tools are more accessible and easier to use than ever before so I think it balances out (sort of)




>Action Adventure with RPG elements is basically the only “genre” now.
That's an effective way of putting it.
I think there's an increasing tendency for big budget single-player games to prioritize "immersive" lifelike simulation over creativity, identity and, well, fun. And I personally feel left behind more and more. I don't care about stuff like Star Citizen or Cyberpunk 2077. Don't give a shit if you have realistic ice cube melting algorithms or if citizens actually go piss every two hours if you watch them for enough time.
This is actually a natural development in any medium where technology plays a big role. Something like writing/design quality is too unpredictable to safely invest in, so you create formulas. But formulas get tiring, so you make up for it with dazzling technological advancement, one of the most reliable investments you can make. This has clearly already been happening in video games for a while, but the tendency is for it to become more and more prominent, as with film (obvious example being capeshit).
Or maybe I'm just old. That can be the case too. I don't think it explains everything, though, since I like the occasional indie game and I thought even P5 was alright.

I though about starting this thread in /hobby/, but considering I'm not interested in talking about the merits of the game-itself, and rather to discuss the specific dilemma of factions, I thought I'd get a more focused discussion here.

The Wildcard ending notwithstanding, there are principally three different factions in the game you can side with: Caesar's Legion, New California Republic, and Mr. House. To begin, Caesar's Legion is a fascist power lead by a historical materialist (even though the writers somewhat misrepresent Hegel in their dialogue about the dialectic, the general theme is maintained) most players misunderstand Caesar as just a LARPer rather than someone who is genuinely trying to restart history. His Legion, is admittedly a hegemonic autocracy that Caesar intends to use to subjugate humanity under one banner, so that their collective progress would be accelerated. It's entirely possible to interpret Caesar as just history's janitor trying to send humanity back through the motions and antiquity to try and reach a better result than rushing back to the "good ol' days" like the NCR, rather than someone who takes pleasure in creating a slave society that is an objectively malignant entity.

The NCR is presented as the return of the old Bourgeois Dictatorship of the US, their government is a corrupt expansionist bureaucracy that can only adequately administrate war, meanwhile the actual body of the legislation itself has a lineage of benevolent autocrats (tandy) and is ruled by the interest of the "brahmin barons" (kulaks), this is a critique that Caesar presents in his analysis of the NCR (which happens to sound out-of-context Marxian). Caesar correctly identifies the NCR as a reincarnation of the failed Bourgeois state that brought about the very predicament of the wasteland, and seeks to use them as his component in creating a society apt enough to the material conditions of the wasteland.

The strangest character in this dynamic is Mr. House, if the NCR is a light veil for a Bourg dictatorship, then Mr. House is an open window, making no illusions to the player about his proposed autocratic status and ex-Bourg origin. Since the wasteland cannot be considered Capitalist (as a true economic analysis of the Fallout universe would lack too many necessary factors to be accurate) we have to assume that the wastes can be best surmised as a scavenger-economy wherein the most valuable resource is electricity and armamentPost too long.

This is the most leftist thread on the board IMO


>What faction would a principled Marxist side with in Fallout: New Vegas?
whatever the character you're roleplaying as would join

you know that's what wrpgs are, right?


What do you guy think of New Canaan? To me they seem like a settler colony but without the imperialism and racism somehow. The only thing they care to spread is Mormonism and medical knowledge. They're still pretty paternalistic, both Joshua Graham and Daniel call the Sorrows childlike or naive and superstitious. It's weird for sure.

imagine an anime but the protagonists are all the pilots of fighter jets and other assorted military vehicles. that is ace combat.


Your post has told me absolutely nothing about the gameplay. Am I to assume these are visual novels?


never played afterburner, but it's not like star fox, which is on rails. ace combat is closer to a flight sim (but very arcadey still) with full control over flight path and whatnot. you shoot down other aircraft and also helicopters and ground targets (tanks, fortifications, etc.). it's closer to rogue squadron than star fox.


Maybe the all-range stages in Star Fox 64?

How big of a step-up is Zero compared to 4 and 5? I played through and enjoyed the latter two, but I haven't snagged a copy of Zero yet. Is it as good as the fans make it out to be or is it just a pretty good game that's very memeable?

/leftypol/ has gotten to the finals of the most recent poleague!


However, this team is actually run and controlled by ULP… The poleague has asked us however if we would be interested in either joining together with ULP (if they agree) to manage the team, or possibly just creating a separate team of our own. However, none of the mods can really take on the responsibility right now, so is there anyone else who is interested in being involved with this? ULP's team is pretty cool, they have custom models, custom music, and all sorts, so there's definitely a lot of scope to experiment with the engine (blender models can be imported into the game).

Thanks for your attention!

As I said it's probably some anons from 8/leftypol/ (might be 8/leftpol/ idk), as it was never mentioned /leftypol/.
Bat'ko linking to ULP in his channel and talking about discord drama. Danov did link to ULP as well. Again nobody talks about ULP here it is non-existent in /leftypol/

https://youtu.be/T3SM40yI8ec (Danov links to ULP)

Finally, /leftypol/'s community strongly rejected a suggestion to open a discord server for /leftypol/ and instead decided to have a matrix room.


Here is the thread about opening a discord for /leftypol/
