I don't know its probably because Activision thinks Warzone makes them more money than Zombies does.

I played Suzerain a few months back and its made me itch for political simulators where you run a party/government.

Id love a game where you have to establish a political party in a country and build up its support in different areas each election, securing demographics and heartlands and then fighting in elections over the decades as time goes on. Or having different factions in your party which could steer it more rightwing or leftwing, or having to make coalition governments etc Party leaders and senior officials would have like their own personalities or something and could effect your electability.

I know the democracy games exist and ive tried them but they dont do it that much for me.

Why not Secret Government? If the playthroughs are any indication, it's almost like an Alpharius simulator.

It probably does. Why make a new map to give away for free when you can make a dozen new weapon blueprint store bundles to sell for $24 a pop?

Yes. Awesome game. Has some really fun gameplay mechanics that largely focus on discussion and investigation, has a very fascinating world and characters to interact with and has an Amazing soundtrack.

Dont play it when you are an emotional depressed wreck though like i did as i cried my fucking eyes out near the end of the game.

Also some really bizarre and wonderous things can happen in that game. Like i became a communist and was able to go on rants about workers struggles and Marxism during conversations. Then my intestines (think it was them) tried to convince me to become a fascist and blamed women for everything wrong in the world.

Okay so far Andromeda is pretty good so far, sure the facial animations are a little wanky. But I'm loving the game it's too bad there was no DLC for the game.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 is gona be a 3 month Xbox exclusive.

3 months is an odd period of time for exclusivity but at least its short. Also seems like it will be on gamepass as well.

Sorry for the late reply Huskar, but your intestines were fascist? What's next, your liver is a liver is a liberal and trying to argue that legalizing gay marriage complete justifies drone striking middle eastern villages?

Lmao

See its been a while since ive played but in Disco Elysium you have these different skills and thoughts which kind of have their own voices in a way? Its like different aspects of your mind trying to steer you towards different things or raising different options for you to pursue and explore.

Like if you have a high enough skill it might pop up in a conversation and say to you "dont ask this question or they will shut down" or telling you can notice a certain thing about the person which can help you get some information out of them etc etc and im near certain when i had the option to become a fascist, whatever part of my mind that was trying to make me one was talking to me via my gut or intestines or something.

The guy you play as isnt exactly all there in the mental, physical or emotional departments.

edit: And you can focus on a certain thought to "research" it and this will give you different skill bonuses or penalties etc till its done and then it can open up other options for you.

PS2's fixed.

Yep, definitely the powerboard. The multimeter I got to check is sucked though, so it was really difficult to find out if it would work or not.

Also, I almost electrocuted myself 2 times, make sure to remember to actually unplug the power switch from the plug, even if it's off. That was an interesting experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed the recent Resident Evil: Village demo, getting a ton of 4 vibes from it. Loved that they brought back a merchant character and weapon upgrades, read somewhere that you can hunt animals now for upgrades? Interested to see how that plays into the game, I guess something like Far Cry's upgrade system possibly?

Other than waiting for that I'm still grinding Isaac, finished Greedier mode with all of my currently unlocked characters, though with the addition of the new characters/tainted versions of characters it's only about a third of all the clears. Tried to access Corpse to take on Mother but I guess took a wrong turn after assembling the knife and missed my chance to go through Mausoleum so oh well, got a Lamb and Mega Satan clear so it wasn't a total throw run. Was also checking out Returnal because it looks pretty interesting, but currently have a lot of rougelikes I'm playing at the moment so I'll give it a bit before I consider buying it.

To see him fly
But we don't know why
Ooh, now where do we go
