Disco Elysium

Anyone played this, or heard of it?

Just starting now. Feels really different. A bit early but I
think this is going to be a great game for me. Playing as a
schizophrenic detective with memory loss and alcoholism.
Just woke up naked in a hotel room.

It's one of the very best games I've ever played. The
writing is superb, and the characters have a ton of depth. I
found the setting endlessly interesting. I'm waiting a bit
to play it again, there's a ton of stuff I didn't get to
experience in my first playthrough. My wife's playthough
was quite different.

I don't want to give anything away.

I had to stop playing at various points just to take in the
soundtrack. Especially this tune.

I played as a libertarian ("Ultraliberal" in the game's
parlance) with an affinity for the supernatural.

I got some money every time I preached the free market, but
suffered like a -2 to empathy rolls, which was hilarious.

i heard of it the year it released but never played it. i
watched gameplay at the time and it looked boring

I'm right wit you, this and Fallout NV are both in my top 3.
Skyrim, Morrowind, Witcher 3, Planescape Torment or Baldur's
gate taking the third spot.

I'm definitely gonna be a commie as well for my next Disco
playthrough. Even though that's *probably* the slant of the
developers as well, they keep things pretty balanced in the
writing (ie every system goes to shit in the end), which I
genuinely appreciated.

the developers got this reward and in their acceptance
speech thanked Marx and Engels, so yeah

the game also pokes fun at and has serious critiques of
leftism, gave me stuff to think about

it should be said, for people that don't know the game, that
it's set in a different world, so everything is kind of
fresh (while also being recognizable, take the union stuff,
for instance). i liked the religion and the history, to name
some things. and of course the way it looked and felt

i see people saying on twitter that pentiment is a good
game

i wrote down Planescape Torment at some point, maybe because
Action Button named it. but i tried fallout 1, at some
point, and it felt kind of hard for me to get into such an
old game. i guess also because i'm not that much of a gamer
(except Trackmania, at the moment)

so this content creator i like, thought slime, started
streaming the game. but didn't finish it and commented he'd
rather just read a book. so that's a valid opinion, to me

i'd also add it caught my ear for the name alone. the cool
band name things is a specific facet of a general personal
fixation, and disco [anything] is pure fodder. then you do
with "disco elysium" and i know the word elysium and that's
a pretty darn good 2x

i do remember him talking about his character's stats' bar
having an introspective conversation with itself, and that
was like: confirms my feelings here

i guess i should also add. when i say ROY is 20yo old, well,
it was PHP from the start. i offered over email "hey if you
ever need some code help" but never got a response and
that's perfectly solid. why would you want to let
EpicMegatrax in there? terrible idea. offer stands tho

or... never mind new accounts, but maybe provide some sort
of personal contact to help reconnect existing accounts with
their owners who have lost track of the login/email/etc.

i guess it's slippery as you don't want to open the door to
hijacked old accounts, but i do know for a fact there is a
bunch of "ohhhh, i'd post on xlt but i can't remember my
password and i don't have that email anymore"

but that's a mess and i'm sure everyone's busy. more
practically i should do that for yugo...

need to play mirror's edge

youtube is worse. magic spoon can get stuffed. stopped
watching there. sick of whole youtube attitude. ATTITUDE
CRAB.


today, you know, pretty normal, i sign onto soulseek to
leech more japanese speedball arcade music like always.
anyways, a bit into this i spot one called

Japanese Stream Hardcore - UNDER CRAW [JSHEX002]
(M3-35)


...a hilariously bad title by normal standards, but... by
the standards of The Scene Over There, this is like a 3/10
name because it simply makes no sense.

There are so many albums with names like this that it all
becomes a blur; I just wait for one to grab me with
interesting patterns and download it. UNDER CRAW, though,
why am I stuck on this name? Why am I not moving on?

my brain answered: "this is relevant to something we said
yesterday" but that's all i can get out of it. UGH. fine. i
downloaded the album. i don't have high hopes for it

but i checked back in this thread, and YES THAT'S THE THING

ATTITUDE CRAB: UNDER CRAW

i guess i should listen to it now since i finally figured
out why the fuck i downloaded it. i have more bills than
money but i'll by disco elysium eventually, no matter how
bad the people on youtube are

in the over-simplified version of reality where everyone is

or [someone that has 150 tabs open at once]) i am the latter
sort, 150 tabs open at once

...and, really, it's a marvel i don't post chained replies
to the wrong thread more often, given how i run my
reality

so why u so under craw

# of Downloads:45

...it was 44 before i clicked to see if worked, and it does,
it roughly sends you to mediafire in a way that will trigger
browser security warnings.

i don't think it's actually a hentai/doujin soundtrack -- i
think that's a joke? -- but i really have no idea!

cons: UNDER CRAW clearly not as popular as Disco Elysium
pros: it's much cheaper

I didn't expect to like this but it really was quite good.
I'm glad you can mute the voice acting. I listened to the
voices sometimes and apart from Kim they were all so
voiceacty and ill-fitting. The scooter guy doesn't sound
anything like scooter. Anyway very cool game.
