And system shock too.

There is a weaponized disease in Deus Ex just like Covid19 but more dramatized.

"The Gray Death is a nano-virus used by Majestic 12 in Deus Ex as part of their plan to take over the world"

The story of Deus Ex is like our reality, like someone made a time machine from the future just to go to the past for writing the story of that game.

Pathologic is too real. I was just wandering by some abandoned shops considering looting them now that the pandemic has left me unemployed. I will not play pathologic until this is all behind me.

Neither Fallout nor STALKER has a virus or pandemic going on though. Well I guess you could sorta count FEV but it's not the same thing just a more believable version for "radiation makes supernutants" the rest idk about

People will say stuff like "Oh Deus Ex predicted the future" or "oh Kojima predicted the future in MGS" but the thing is that if you were at all tuned into radical politics and fringe science in the 90s this stuff was not just being discussed but there were already clear examples of it happening all around you.

This virus thing has been great to me so far. With the free time I've had from being off work, I finally got my Savage Gladiator Chain. Also in the same week got Onslaught Girdle. I slap pretty hard now.

They mostly made fun on those communities by mocking them as harder as they could.
And by making fun on certain things, they do it for protection just to not get the raging backlash, so a little research is a nice thing.

I think they genuinely feel that way. They're just enjoying making games. They're not trying to "own the libtards".

It used to be that if you were on the left you could say anything, and it was the right wingers who were always trying to curtail speech. Strange how things change in such a short time

Two-hand Fury Warrior. I'm not dual wield because I wanted to be first in line for BRE when it drops but I think Blizzard forgot to re-add it into the game :/

I have realized lately the astonishing lack of pandemic and nuclear war simulators. I can think of only 3 pandemic ones and one of them is shit with the third just a remake of a web game, and only two nuclear war simulators with the one being just a phoneshit game.

Meanwhile every time I try to find disease themed games the vast majority is just more zombie bullshit, including a horrifying number of absolute garbage shovelware ones.

It's weird. It's janky. You're encouraged to have multiple accounts. It's a city that's been quarantined after a zombie outbreak, and you either survive and build a safe house, or you can play as a zombie, or even a zombie horde if you really want. The people and zombies in game are real people with their own account(s).

Project Zomboid is a zombie outbreak game in isometric perspective with hardcore play where even getting hit by a zombie has a 5% chance of getting killed and losing all your xp and having to reroll a character. You can build safehouses, cars, and go off into the highly infested mall in search of hardware store supplies. Or you can live in the woods like a wuss. Best played with a list of mods from the Project Redboid server. I don't recommend this game for PVP. It's very frustrating to have your 100 hour character taken out by a guy with a rifle from off screen.

I used to play the fuck out of Urban Dead way way back in like 2006. I would come home from school and grind the hell out of it. I remember the Fireman being a really good start because you got an axe, a helmet and a first aid kit.

There was also a similar game from the same time called Nexus Wars in which you were a mortal thrown into a war between heaven and hell and could choose to align either good evil or neutral, it took place in a big city area. It was really good and had an amazing class system.

You know what I wish I was around to play Dead Space multiplayer. It looked good but I was too busy with other shit at the time so when I got back to vidya after taking a break the servers were dead. In fact just about every game it seems like the servers go totally dead within 6 months of release.

I actually loved the multiplayer in Dead Space 2. There was some horribly broken shit that made it hard on noobies like the rifle's alternate fire and how ranking up gave you damage bonuses. I still had a lot of fun though. It had a great atmosphere, required solid teamwork and was very tense. Similar to Singularity's also dead MP. I'm a sucker for asymmetric PVP.

Literally create Covid-19 in Space Station 13 and watch it infect the entire crew. See if security handles lockdowns correctly.

Interesting social experiment...

They'd probably start a lockdown so they can arrest anyone doing anything. Then they would blame somebody they don't like and declare war on them for "releasing a virus". If there is no obvious traitor, they'll most likely target the CMO or virologist or geneticist, and the rest of medbay would get dragged into the conflict. The important thing is they have somebody to blame and a reason to shoot at people. The station would go into full chaos, traitors would take advantage of the situation, everyone would be dead within an hour and nobody would attempt to make a cure regardless. The shuttle would have already been called the moment somebody sneezed, defeating any small chance the station had of recovering. Any chance of the medbay not being overwhelmed would be lost by security and traitors and greytide causing chaos. The round would end with only hardsuit engineers. The admins had already decided who they wanted to ban within 10 minutes of the round starting, so the next 30 minutes of them delaying the round would be them asking questions in an attempt to force a "confession", most likely from the most innocent and/or coolest player on the server.

5 years ago it might have led to an interesting round. Now the only chance of it being handled correctly would be on an RP server in which nobody would ever be allowed to make a virus in the first place.

SS13 sucks.

Just started to play the original Witcher game to lead into replaying 2 and finishing 3.
Was surprised to see there is the presence of quarantines and lockdowns along with death to the disease known as the Catriona plague which is killing off the city of Vizima.

If you could be infertile and immune to disease like a Witcher would you be? Do you think you'd survive the trial of grasses and mutation? Knowing my luck I'd just die.

I'm not doing anything useful with my penis so I don't mind being a Witcher. I've got good luck, been that way all my life, so I think I'll survive the mutation. I don't think I'll be able to handle the training though so I'l probably never get to that point. Even if I did, I'll never risk my life fighting monsters for anyone. I hope I'll graduate from the Cat School of Witchers, I'd much rather kill people and I'll feel more comfortable spending time with female witchers than in the other sausage fest schools.

They do try to censor free speech constantly and they try to disrupt and shut down any discourse that they can anywhere and everywhere and they go out of their way took try to sabotage any community they can find it's just that they're so fucking incompetent and toothless and so thoroughly hated by literally everybody that every time they attempt to do so they get immediately pushed back to their miserable little shitholes on 4chan and stormfront. I really don't get why they think anyone else is remotely as retard as they are and thus retarded enough to believe a group of people who openly advocate genocide of wide varieties of people and the systematic mass murder of political opponents and whoever they happen to be butthurt about at the time are "free speech." It's a totally disingenuous pack of the most cynical lies hoping to use and abuse the very things that they resoundingly hate to their advantage, which is a free and open society. You give these fuckers even an inch and you'll wind up with unmarked troops disappearing you. That's not even a caricature that's literally their policy platform.

Fuck them and all people like them. They are goddamn lucky they live in a tolerant and tree society they like to bitch about rather than one with people like me being given full reign because I have no qualms lowering myself to their level and enagingjn in systematic mass murder of my political enemies too, which if you do let them take that mile is exactly what's going to end up being forced to happen anyway. The only thing filth like that understands is force. You can either push them into the mud culturally now or get to have to firebomb their cities with tens of millions of people dying like we've been forced to do in places like the Deep South and Germany before. And no, you do not have any change at "enlightening" the stupid evil fucks either. They are unchanging. What they cynically count on however is you being weak and them being able to push things to the point where they have enough of the public either giving their unspoken consent or simply looking the other way until they can fully institute their reign of terror.
