PROPHETIC GAME IT PREDICTED EVERYTHING
PROPHETIC GAME IT PREDICTED EVERYTHING
why is this game so comfy to play, bros?
because it reminds you of your childhood, and it's pretty calm music and sound work wise without much flashing lights or fast action
I played it in when I was in Iraq, some "childhood"
yeah you were still a kid when you were 18
ah i see, well i am sorry you had to experience that
i don't know why you think it's comfy then
Im not the one that called it comfy but vidya on my laptop was a good escape.
Also I got the full version for free from one of those pc gamer or w/e mags demo disc. I do miss those
dude remember when we could get codes from those or tricks for hidden parts in games
i miss those days, the internet made them useless but still they were cool
>i don't know why you think it's comfy then
Because games can be comfy irrespective of nostalgia you fucking hylic
I was too dumb as a child to play it.
I'm 33 and i played for the first time last year.
The main quest fucking bugged and i stopped playing tho.
Everytime I see a DE thread i'm tempted to reinstall it, the game was so comfy
What bugged out? Iirc game had variables to handle most choices you could have made, except for accessing Tong's place early.
I played Deus Ex Revision and it bugged once you go see your brother at your apartment after finishing the quest he gives you. The bug was he doesn't speak to me anymore. I tried to reload a save game but got the same bug.
Next time I ll play GMDX
He does stop talking to you when you're supposed to be raided, maybe it was that. He told you to leave through a window, right? I'm pretty sure you could have just left or kys'd in front of him to progress once you confirmed that quest was complete, but I have a faint memory of the code he gives you not showing up in your notes.
not him but there is a bug in revision where if you do something in one of the levels prior to that one your brother doesn't talk to you
it happened to me too
i think its been fixed now though
>I played Deus Ex Revision
>Next time I ll play GMDX
Being an adult meaning coming to terms with the fact that we deserve God's wrath for such misdeeds.
You didn't get a bug. If you walk towards the door the MIB break in. Paul is supposed to stop talking to you after telling you to just escape (don't, because Paul is unkillable and letting him fight out means he escapes to Tong)
I just reinstall it and now it works, I can speak to Paul.
Time to play deus Ex again i guess
>to reinstall it
the game is like 700MB. why would you ever not have it installed?
how does it remind me of childhood if I started playing it as an adult
I played it when I was 19, still comfy.
>garbage stealth mechanics
>ez stealth mechanics
Yes, quite comfy.

PROPHETIC GAME IT PREDICTED EVERYTHING
I think it has to do with every object being "interactable". Either you can use it, so drink from the water fountain, use the shower, open the fridge, drink the beer, break a window, etc or is a decoration that you can at any time place in a different area. I love this kind of thing. oh and important part - it's NEVER forced on you.
Why can't today's games achieve this? Everything is either on rails and only lets you use scripted shit with decorations fucking welded to the table or a meme game that focuses exclusively on sandbox playing with props, no fun stealth/shooting/whatever. The tech is there, but it's like people make it a point to avoid letting you have too much fun.
>Why can't today's games achieve this?
Because graphics have a large amount of detail with baked shadows, AI maps and collision maps
The higher detail graphics are the harder it is to make destructable and movable terrain
nope game studios just used to be majority white and male.
Vaccines are not cures. The only vaccine that works as a cure is the one against rabies because the disease progression is so slow.
without turning this into a debate about vaccines, vaccines are preventative medicines that teach your immune system to be ready for an infection by giving you a weaker version of it
the rabies vaccine is slightly different but it's the same idea
yes vaccines are not cures
MRNA vaccines went through the same testing procedures as any other vaccine, but okay.
They literally admit they skipped trials because they needed to work "at the speed of science."
There's no excuse for being this ignorant in 2023 shilling for big pharma.
No, they did not; that is false.
please, what vaccines were made and released in less than 2 years besides the COVID ones?
Actually that's bullshit too, once rabies reaches the brain stem the vaccine won't do shit the only thing the vaccine does is just stop it from reaching there.
>the only one is rabies
curious how we give babies more than a rabies shot right? curious how we give or gave teenagers in highschool only a few years ago tuberculosis vaccines right?
shut the fuck up. the entire point of vaccines in our entire modern recent history has been "we give you this, then you basically never get the thing unless you're hyper unlucky or fucked"
they did not give us bcg injections and then 50% or 80% of us got tuberculosis anyway you clown, if that happened people would be up in arms
we...don't give babies the rabies shot anon.
you failed to read anon, the person im responding to brought up the rabies shot. but we give babies like half a dozen shots, so clearly we immunize against MORE THAN RABIES
imagine the shilling effort glowies would put up when another redpill bombshell like deus ex dropped nowadays
what the fuck are you on about
do you people just not play the games and fill in the gaps in your brain when you hear the words "pandemic" and "vaccine"?????
name 3 games that openly call out glowing shit like deus ex did
what the fuck did deux ex call out?
oh the rich are holding back medicine from everyone and only taking it for themselves? insane call out there that noone fucking predicted
doesn't matter, currently such games would not be allowed to be published
i see a lot of games with the message "rich people bad" being released, maybe not with the focus deus ex did
it's a tired trope, and it would probably be called "communist" by people nowdays
hell, have you played hitman
if all you got out of Deus Ex was "rich people bad" you might have a learning disability
you need to take your delusional schizophrenia seriously before you hurt someone around you
rich people bad, government lies
that is really it
>you need to take your delusional schizophrenia seriously
You don't even know what my thoughts are on the game and it's message. You're assuming shit because you're a midwit.
you are seeing things where there are none, that's all i need to know
you are actually retarded
>i see a lot of games with the message "rich people bad" being released, maybe not with the focus deus ex did
>it's a tired trope, and it would probably be called "communist" by people nowdays
>hell, have you played hitman
rich people tend to be terrible human beings because the nature of that type of person is greed. Greed is the only mental illness that if you're poor is debilitating but as soon as you strike it rich it's no longer a problem, it's everyone else's problem. rich people should be killed if they keep trying to become richer, they're demons at that point.
i agree with this
this is schizophrenia though and completely unrelated pattern recognition by people
you have zero self-awareness
not him but what is wrong with his post? greed is completely fine if you are rich
but god forbid the poor ask for gibs
the vast majority of the people who hold his opinion and refer to the poor as their own separate entity aren't poor themselves. instead of shitposting on Ganker he should be helping out in a soup kitchen or something, but instead he's just being a moron on a videogame board. fucker should lead by example and shoot himself.
>the vast majority of the people who hold his opinion and refer to the poor as their own separate entity aren't poor themselves. instead of shitposting on Ganker he should be helping out in a soup kitchen or something, but instead he's just being a moron on a videogame board. fucker should lead by example and shoot himself.
rich people who don't take their gains and stop destroying for the sake of always getting more should be killed. They're a tumor.
then do the poor a favour and have a nice day as clearly you're a part of the problem for not being poor.
>then do the poor a favour and have a nice day as clearly you're a part of the problem for not being poor.
you seem mad. does it hurt your feelings that given the chance to kill each and every rich person 99% of the population would kill without even a though? They're disgusting subhumans who can't even conquer their greed.
no, I'm just confused why you think you're any different to the people you're saying need to die.
>This crackdown is the work of Majestic 12.

>I don't care what they call themselves. I have seen it since I was a girl, the
plotting and scheming of corporations to make Europe into one big country with

>It's more than Europe they plan to unify.
Also keep in mind that at the time DX released, the EU wasn't formalized yet in the form it is today although some groundwork was laid. The EU as we know it didn't formally exist until a year or two later when they started bossing everybody around and forcing them to get in line with a centralized currency.
>this is real to me because i skipped my meds today
>the majestic 12 are the EU cuz i said so
Maybe you should go back to Majestic 12. In a body bag.
Did you play the game? What the fuck you think UNATCO is?
There's not enough vaccine to go around and the underclasses are starting to get desperate. Your turn.
but there are more than enough vaccines to go around, infact there is so much around that peopla are not taking them
Get the hell out of here, Denton.
my eyesight is adjusted
>shady organization makes disease

>shady organization does this to consolidate power, solidify control, lower the living standards of the masses, and lower the quality/quantity of food
It's really not that difficult to draw parallels between Deus Ex's story and what has happened over the last few years. Not to mention that a lot of the plot was inspired by conspiracy theorists–such as Milton Cooper–at the time who actually did predict a lot of what has happened since they published their writings. The fact that people deny this is baffling to me. All this being said, the game and the aforementioned conspiracy theorists did not "predict everything," and to claim they did is to idiotic. They did get a lot correct, but exaggerating doesn't help anyone and poisons the discourse.
Indeed, it's not a prediction per se, it's just that some people are comfortable and indentured to the system in it's current state to see the big picture and where it's headed.
It doesn't take a genius to think that the government want more control over the people and that the rich elites got there because they are psychopaths and wouldn't mind sacrificing "lesser" people to further their own ideals.
Anyone could think this, but voice those ideas and you will suddenly sound like a conspiracy theorist.
Yep. Spot on, anon
Those are all just your own delusions.
It is not something that is actually happening.
People had the exact same conspiracies for aids or any other big disease. It is not something new.
Coincidence theorists are unironically the biggest retards on the planet. Touch grass, anon.
life is filled with weird things, not everything is part of some grand scheme
for fuck's sake the same elite you are accusing of being such powerful beings that can plan things like that can't even stop their own twitter from being hacked, don't be delusional
are they snakes? of course but don't become a tard
Powerful people don't have to meet in a big room to make things happen. They work towards their own interests. You are a midwit
>Powerful people don't have to meet in a big room to make things happen
But they sure live to meet in big rooms, often away from cameras
Oh yeah they meet all the time and openly signal to each other in public. I was just trying to demonstrate a point
Just because you're an ignorant sheep with poor pattern recognition skills doesn't mean the things anon was talking about aren't real.
not him but just cuz you skip your medications and have consumed enough twitter shit to have your brain rot from the inside out that you see patterns where there is none doesn't mean that the things you say are right
>People had the exact same conspiracies for aids
they were right about that too
but like, none of those happened
>vaccine is free for everyone and cheap to mass produce, made by multiple companies
and no shady organization made any disease, noone consolidated power aside from pharma making money from sales (lots of companies profited during the pandemic even non pharma ones)
what part of "draw some parallels" do you not understand? Do you think I'm claiming there's a 1:1 comparison between the game and reality? Think with a little nuance for once or stay humble remain silent.
See I don't usually say stuff like "oh he glowing" but uh... oh he glowing hard. A shady organization did create the virus. This is pretty much confirmed at this point. Why even bother denying it ? Why was Google censoring info on the gain of function research of covid? Face it glowie, people don't buy your BS anymore.
>confirmed at this point
>i know cuz i follow pol posts
can you bother getting brain cells? google and facebook censored stuff at first relating to covid cuz people were spamming random shit around causing mass hysteria and they got blamed for it
do i approve of their actions? no but they are companies and don't want to be blamed when someone kills themselves
Consolidation of power here is power over the media and the mind.
Setting up a manichean type system where obeying the 'experts', experts as determined by the media-government complex, is seen as the ultimate moral good. And those that don't, are evil and anti-social.
Effectively its enforcing a dividing line into society where one side are the good people because they listened to the experts and followed the rules, and the other is evil because they didn't. Regardless of the justifications behind either side.
organization makes disease
This is where you are wrong and also where the parallels end.
organization makes disease
>This is where you are wrong and also where the parallels end.
Why was the gain-of-function research in Wuhan censored from Google, Facebook and Twitter?
>novel virus just so happens to have genetic code that matches one engineered by Moderna and patented that predates the novel virus' existence
Literally a shady organization made the disease.
even if that were not true explain to me how the ruling class did not do the rest of what I said?
this is why i'm refusing to this day to play this game
i've already finished immersive sims games numerous times (with ss2 being my favourite)
gay cringey politic identity shit, same with mgs rising nowadays
and yeah i agree, they just flock to old titles and add shit that has nothing to do with it
mgr rising is a meme game that's been posted on Ganker for years, or atleast it started out as a meme until retarded teenagers joined in a year or so ago when it blew up and took it a bit too seriously (same thing with the sigma meme, the hypoborrean edit or whatever they're called etc). If you played mgr you'd know how fucking retarded the political views of all characters are, sure armstrong says some true stuff, but his ideals are brain dead retarded if you think past his "celebrity bullshit" quote
dude i was laughing so hard seeing people post about armstrong's views like it's something that makes sense
>this is why i'm refusing to this day to play this game
You type like a gay and your shit is all retarded, there is no doubt that you are a gay.
Not that anon, but that is what the games are referred to as. Immersive Sims. Not saying he isn't still a gay for refusing to play Deus Ex for... politics? but he's not wrong calling it an ImSim
Can you imagine being this buck broke? Me, I could never.
>gay cringey politic identity shit
dude it's literally just about the centralization and abuse of power. it's a proper "political" game because it tells a contained story without going "WINK WINK THIS IS JUST LIKE A SITUATION IN REAL LIFE HAHA" all the time. there are parallels to real life like any good parable but it's subtle about it.
>pshh dude everyone who talks politics is so fuckin DUMB not like me who collects N64 carts

i love that about it, the schizos ruined it
it's not their fault the conspiracies turned out to be true.
nothing about the game turned out to be true
Your appointment to FEMA will be finalized within the week, I have already discussed the matter with the Senator.
again, nothing of substance
the only thing i'd agree with is that cancer cure being hidden shit CUZ I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT ONE EVEN IF I HAVE NO PROOF
Old men running the world.
woah that's messed up
what next? politicians being corrupt?
>put a bunch of crazy conspiracy theories and make them true in your game for fun
>20 years later, half of them are current news
on top of my mind
back then it was crazy to think government secretly spied on people, now it's a commonly accepted fact
>the "war on terror"
government waging a phony war on terrorism to conduct multiple military operations worldwide was fantasy before 9/11
>extreme business consolidation
sure it was already happening to an extent, but it almost reached Deus Ex levels much faster than expected
Genetically engineered children are a reality in China
>countries/companies engineering deadly viruses and researching biological warfare
back then it was much more controversial, now it's a commonly known fact
>twin towers missing
funny how it supposedly happened by mistake in the game
>global pandemic that consolidates pre-existing powers and restricts freedoms
>the rise of AI
happening as we speak
1.everyone knew about that since the fucking 50s
2.everyone knew america went to fight "terrorists" to fuck with countries since the 80s
3.that was inevitable, but ill give you that
5.nonsense, didn't happen and biological weapons were known as a possibility since the 40s
6.that's retarded, it's "simpsons predicted 9/11" tier nonsense
7.retarded, noone consolidated anything (in the first world atleast) and noone restricted your freedom by using emergency pandemic measures, but fine take that as a point even though lots of media had that before
8.very common trope, been a thing since space odyssy 2001 (release in 1968)
>everyone knew about that since the fucking 50s
except it was a conspiracy theory, then the NSA spying made worldwide headlines
>everyone knew america went to fight "terrorists" to fuck with countries since the 80s
fighting "terrorism" by itself was never the justification of any war prior to 9/11
In fact, USA was founding groups that would later be defined as "terrorist" in the 80s
bro check the news, the fist gene edited kids are 4 years old now
it became such an international scandal that China jailed the researcher that authored the project
it's been known since the early 2000s, US even lifted a ban on making lethal viruses 6 years ago
>it's "simpsons predicted 9/11" tier nonsense
still, there are no twin towers in the game
some devs referred to it as a result of "terrorism" in interviews to roll with the joke post-9/11 but there's no mention of it in the game
>noone consolidated anything
except the countless small business that had to shut down while the biggest corporations thrived from it
>noone restricted your freedom by using emergency pandemic measures
two years ago I literally couldn't go for a walk, where the fuck do you live
unless you mean there were no permanent restriction, that is true if you don't count the need for a vaccination pass to travel to some countries
>very common trope
true, but it was still fantasy back then and now it's reality
>two years ago I literally couldn't go for a walk, where the fuck do you live
Do you live in China or something?
No I live in Italy, we were the first to implement lockdowns other than China
Each region applied different forms of restrictions based on the latest infection data; during the worst wave I wasn't allowed to leave my home except to travel to the nearest supermarket (only one person from the same house was allowed to leave and you couldn't go further than the store)
Fuck, I couldn't see my relatives for 2 months straight
Pretty insane. Where I live people didn’t even bother with mask.
Guess Italy was a testing ground; nobody was happy but we mostly complied.
I assumed most of the first world had something similar (at least at the beginning of the pandemic), what the fuck
I visited Paris during covid and it felt like living in a cyber dystopia. Armed guards were checking for people's digitally vaxcards at random in restaurants. One time a guest got so spooked by this globalist gestapo that he fled the restaurant at the first sight of them (he was sitting outdoors)
That other anon said noone restricted your freedom by using emergency pandemic measures
what's fake news? were you living in Paris between 2020-2022?
don't lie anon you were living in your parents basement in 2020-2022. Probably still are. Say hi to your mom for me for when you go up for snacks.
You must've not gone out very much, then. Every restaurant asked me for my vcard and not the cool kind of vcard
of course they did, otherwise you eat outdoors
we aren't americans here, we aren't retarded
we understand it's a disease and we don't want to spread it like plague rats
So are you up to date on your boosters? You took the vax i assume?
twitter is missing a booster mate, go back
fuck he infected me with his retardation
you sound vaccinated.
So what is your claim then? Is that not a gross violation of freedom? Is that not an abuse of government power? I claimed that you can draw some parallels between Deus Ex and recent events, but it seems you wave away what I say because you’re ok with it. That doesn’t refute anything that just means you’re ok with getting your face stomped on
it is not an abuse of government power, it's the government trying to keep their citizens alive
i agree, but still americans had the worst possible response possible
>it is not an abuse of government power
which is why many restrictions were declared as unconstitutional in multiple countries when the whole thing settled
but they weren't
Do you know the constitution of every country? A kind of curfew in cases like this is possible in most countries if not all, but not to the extend it was enacted. Like you can't give people a "choice" to take vaccine or lose their jobs. You're just showing you have no idea what you're talking about.
what do you mean? most jobs require a health certificate, especially in the food and health industry
you always needed to be up to date on vaccinations, now we are just enforcing them more cuz a giant outbreak is staring us in the face
>spain italy and sloevnia
i don't consider those human countries, but fair enough
the new zealand one was addressed later i think and the government defended itself
Not him but I'm from Italy too
my gf was visiting her parents when Zona Rossa was announced and she was stuck there with her brother, we couldn't see each other for a looong while
next time a full lockdown was proclaimed, she was staying with ME and we had to forcefully live together for two months or something (when it started we were already 1+ week into "forced" isolation together because her brother's GF got the virus and rules were that dumb)
After that, she moved to my apartment permanently and she still lives here to this day
In the end I basically got a wife out if this covid shit so I'm not complaining but it's ridiculous to claim no one restricted our freedoms
>people believe this post
i think the thing deus ex predicted is that in the future, everyone is retarded
I don't know about france but our vax card rules were pretty strict
if you weren't vaccinates you were allowed to leave your home, but you couldn't do anything else basically (you couldn't work except remotely, no restaurants, no public transportation, no university, no gym, no pubs, no hotels, no barber shops, no museums or any indoor activity really, travel was restricted and so on)
Your card was checked constantly, everywhere
yeah but there were no fucking armed guards or gestapo, for christ's sake
yes we needed to show our vaccine thing back then, but now we don't
you can go spread it all you want now
it's not aimed at you, but the average schizo
>no fucking armed guards or gestapo
In the vax card times, no (police was called when you were caught accessing restricted areas without a valid vax card but they weren't stationing outside restaurants, lmao)
In the lockdown times, police (and at some point the army, in a few spots) were roaming the streets to make sure no one was leaving their house
yes, going to a place without meeting it's conditions is trespassing, they will call the cops
yes, at the very first few months of the pandemic noone knew what was going on so police were outside, noone had any data on covid so people were scared shitless
>without meeting it's conditions
Most business owners were actually against the regulations (they were hurting small business, plus they were perceived as unconstitutional according to the countless protests they generated through the weeks), it's the government that imposed them
Still, business owners were subjected to large fines if they failed to report any transgression to the authorities
yes, government requires something from you it becomes part of your business condition, you don't do it you are trespassing
example : you need an ID to get alcohol
euros aren't mutts so they understand what a disease is
>euros aren't mutts so they understand what a disease is
yeah, except such regulations turned out to be utterly retarded, which is why they backtracked
Also the population had no idea how a disease actually works, otherwise they would have acted differently
>getting a vaccine that doesn't stop you from catching/spreading the virus is enough to access every public area without masks or distance or anything
>everybody gets a shot
>80% of adults immediately go partying hard to celebrate the end of lockdowns
>two months later, virus infections are increased by 1000%
great plan, thanks government
they didn't though, a fuckton of americans died and not that many euros died
not disputing that americans are retarded but there are other factors to consider
>each country counted deaths in a different way (in some places you actually had to die from covid to be counted as such, in others you simply had to be infected when you died, no matter what actually killed you)
>how strict restrictions were
>public vs private healthcare
>density of population
And so on
>yes, at the very first few months of the pandemic noone knew what was going on so police were outside
>noone had any data on covid
>having no data on something means the government can turn your country in a pseudo-police state where citizens aren't allowed to leave their home and authorities are roaming the empty streets
That's very reassuring, thanks
>psuedo police state
>government protecting it's citizens from an enemy that cannot be fought openly, aka a virus till it can formulate a response
yeah, when civil rights/liberties are infringed, it's always about "protecting the citizens"
>muh civil liberties
you act like martial law was declared, the government always had the power to do that to stop the spread of disease and save its citizens, something humans agreed upon
you are too selfish and self centered cuz you are a retarded mutt
>you act like martial law was declared
that's the worrying part, government did it without even declaring martial law
>the government always had the power to do that to stop the spread of disease
Many countries didn't, which is why Italy (for example) had to rely on a loose interpretation of a law that was originally meant for earthquakes
the way they imposed ever-changing restrictions was (juridically speaking) questionable at the very best, none of it was ever signed into law and the ruling parties released multiple updates without consulting the parliament
and in the end what happened? everything went back to normal and the spread of disease was reduced
i don't understand how this is the same as unatco and the piss 12
>and in the end what happened?
on top of my mind,
countless small businesses were forced to close, lots and lots of people lost their job, a new form of welfare was declared to fight the rampant unemployment which made taxes and national debt worse while creating a new class of jobless leeches, everyone on the right age got a university degree for free (because "remote exams"/learning was a joke and everybody cheated) which made it even harder for that generation to get hired, also we're still trying to figure out how much this whole thing fucked the development of that generation of kids
and you think if people were allowed to continue with business as usual none of this would happen? with the ICUs full and people dying you think that there wouldn't be a shortage of workers that would lead to a shortage of resources?
there surely would have been a shortage of elders, which means less taxes for everyone lmao
that's not how that works
which country? it affected some differently of course but i remember some countries had it really bad (like spain)
covid killed way more than just elder, as of now 28 million people are dead
28 million lives just ended cuz of a disease, despite all our efforst with lockdowns and masks
as it stands, it is currently the leading cause of death for children in the US
The temporary hospitals they created were proven to be mostly empty, at least in my country... Thanks for reminding me.
>and in the end what happened?
Instead of updating the current laws/writing new ones to include such extreme cases in the constitution (to establish what kind of proceedings are lawful/legitimate next time shit hits the fan), we just collectively accepted that the government can and will do whatever the fuck it wants in a situation of crisis
Which basically means it's only a proper constitutional democracy in times of stability
they didn't even prove there was a virus they just said there was one on tv during flu season. On an unrelated note the flu nearly disappeared in 2020
>gaslighting this hard
Look up the digital vax system implemented in European countries at the time. You could not go anywhere without an updated test or booster
>armed police infront of restaurants
you want to know how i know you are american?
that's cuz you guys had the biggest outbreak of said disease
seconding this what the fuck
the rest doesn't explain shit
it's a pretty stupid thing to draw parallel from
>it's a pretty stupid thing to draw parallel from
what? we're discussing the game and how it relates to and was inspired by real life
Not that anon, but, for me , It's how it "predicated" many things that are happening nowadays.
yeah but it seems half the thread would rather put their heads in the sand or troll and pretend they are. Lame either way
Gene editing has been an actual thing since the 90s.
so if i'm understanding you correctly, this is what you all are basing your view of the game on?
i am starting to think that none of you played the game, and the the game's controls gatekept you out so you parrot a youtuber
literally wtf are you talking about, the whole point of the game is too stop globalism to only end up running things or changing the way things operate or just collapsing the system, stupid moron
based uneducated tard
>its uneducated to explain the plot
must be nice being retard, no need to ask questions
i am saying you are uneducated because you misunderstood the plot entirely and are a cum gargling gayron that probably never played the game
then whats the plot then? go on and dig yourself deeper fag
this is a 90s conspiracy theory, people still spout that shit to this day
nothing was predicted, the EU was always viewed like that by nationalists (notice how she uses words like "true patriot" and whatnot) and none of that came true
EU countries still have their culture and languages, even if they are unified
>countries still have their culture
No, they don't. I hare relatives living in Poland and they changed from patriots in 90s and 00s to people without national memory or even honor.
Do they speak Polish in Poland?
also here they are not saying that the EU is the majestic 12, it was denton asking her if she means the majestic 12
the majestic 12 are something entirely different ingame than that and much bigger than the EU

PROPHETIC GAME IT PREDICTED EVERYTHING
oh innocent sweet child..
literally nothing of value in your post
IT'S NOT A JOKE.
NONE OF THAT GAME WAS A HOAX
NONE OF IT. NONE OF IT. NONE OF IT. NONE OF IT. NONE OF IT.
please consume your soilent
the game tells you flat out it's not a joke... thats an in game screenshot. im not some retard creep who just posts clowns for no reason
you are grasping for straws anon
>sign says no jokes that means everything in the game is real life and a prediction of the future by the devs rather than them fucking around and making a game
THE GAME TELLS YOU IT IS NOT A GAME MULTIPLE TIMES. NOT JUST THE CLOWNS. YOUR OWN BROTHER TELLS YOU THESE ARE REAL PEOPLE. THAT YOU SHOULD STICK WITH THE PROD BECAUSE THIS IS ALL REAL. THE PEOPLE ARE REAL. THE INFORMATION IS REAL. IT'S ALL REAL. WAKE THE FUCK UP SHEEPLE.
MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE MOON BASE
I don't care if the game was a Masonic planned-programming insight into the future, it's still really shitty and boring to play.
Why do you post wrong things online, anonymous?
he's right though, old games are objectively shit to play and you need a certain level of autism to enjoy them
t deus ex enjoyer
>old games are objectively shit to play
Get good, noob.
Computer games should only be allowed to be played by the spectral master race. You retarded lot playing games is what killed it.
>zoomers don't know how to rebind controls and get confused by simple user interfaces
Played it for the first time, the only REAL filter is the long aim time, just place a scope on the pistol, upgrade pistol to advanced and get the gep gun to open doors, that's it
There's a free scope in a secret room under Alex Jacobson's room when you first visit unatco, and some soldier guy also sells you a scope there
The game aged gracefully, perfectly playable and fun

i miss when we could have normal deus ex threads
It was made by garden gnomes who make everything that which shapes your thoughts and emotions and knows your every move. You are golem.
What was this game about. Is it canon?
Can story go even further to the future in 22 century?
Nobody cares either way.
> Game is about elites hoarding the vaccine, and the regular people are dying to get it

how did this game predict anything
shut up, you are sheeple
you don't have to twist your brain to validate the media you consoom in-order to believe what you believe anon. Deus Ex is a good game but it's not a bible, its a video game made by a bunch of nerds in the 90s.
then stop invading every deus ex thread with schizophrenia about current events, as it has nothing to do with them

How does this not relate to real life at least a little bit?
it does but there are a bunch of bootlickers or glow fags attempting to mislead
>it doesn't fit but i am gonna pretend that it does to own the libs
>at least a little bit
No one is saying Deus Ex literally reflects real life. Stop being retarded.
If it went basically the opposite direction as the game, the relation is fairly limited.
In reality the oligarchs care too much about maintaining economic movement and societal function to fully profiteer in a scenario like that. They understand their power comes from the current system still functioning and will work to perpetuate it.
Page was a classic robber baron type, which works for smaller diseases and illnesses. Insulin is treated like that today a lot of the time. But for a societal scale disease like the Grey Death, 'magnanimity' is more realistic.
the relation is not limited. there are plenty of rational arguments itt. you're being disingenuous and you clearly don't understand how the World works.
why did you capitalize world
The idea that the oligarchy is willing to burn down everything in the name of making money is the mistake.
It shows a lack of understanding of how things work.
The oligarchs are willing to exploit and steal, of course they are. But maintaining societal function is a key interest of theirs. They're like farmers that understand the importance of keeping soil quality or lumberjacks that know to replant. They need society in its current form to keep running, its what grants them wealth and power.
When it comes to diseases, natural disasters, or anything else that endanger society as a whole, more often than not you're going to the TPTB work to counter it and 'save society'. Because that is economically and power-wise, logical for them to do.
Smaller scale problems see profiteering, but larger ones require some acceptance of a loss of profit in the name of general benefits.
Inflation and destroying small businesses helps the wealthy. Idk what you're on about.
Turning the population into a bunch of poverty stricken invalids craters the economy too much. They oligarchs themselves would be ruined because economic activity is necessary for them.
you are retarded
Right now today they could wipe out the economic power of most poorfags almost instantly.
But they require significant economic motion to stay wealthy and powerful. Otherwise being a rich banker means nothing when no one has any money.
Actually you're wrong. See, the goal of capitalism isn't to acquire MONEY, it's to acquire CAPITAL. Capital is stuff that has intrinsic value like land, buildings, and natural resources. No matter what happens to the economy, people who own capital will be on top. Because the economy is actually just a giant lie.
>See, the goal of capitalism isn't to acquire MONEY, it's to acquire CAPITAL.
>THE GOAL OF
No. That's like saying the goal of having a car is to drive as much as possible.
Would "the goal of a capitalist" be better?
Well, if you define capitalist as someone whose goal is to acquire as much capital as possible, then yes.
That is kind of what it is, yes. Capitalism is a system of economics where you use capital to make money so the smart thing to do is get as much capital as you can, rather than put all your faith in funny money. That's why crypto failed.
I'm in a capitalist society and I worked to get enough money for me to spend the rest of my life just having fun and doing whatever I want. I'm not looking for more capital at the moment. In fact, I'm wasting some of my capital for my pleasure.
They clearly don't if they think they can replace white populations with masses of retarded brown people. Don't even try to spout any of this not all brown people bullshit, either. They are just generally stupider and easier to manipulate.
In that case they see mass immigration as a means of weakening labor's bargaining ability as well as a way to ameliorate fears of demographic crashes.
They might not agree with you that browns are inherently less intelligent, or if they do, not so much as to make economic movement untenable.
I'm not sure of how you want me to respond?
Why are they against smoking? Because second hand smoke, I'd wager. They don't want to be fucked up because someone else smokes.
I was aiming at smoking from start, not now.
Gov wasn't against smoking and they hid that its unhealthy for 20 years first. At the start they even had doctors advertise smoking as healthy. They protected the cash cow for a good 30 years. And now you can still buy it with less restrictions than weed.
Its an example how money absolutely wins.
I agree that money wins.
Thats why the oligarchs won't burn everything for the sake of short term profit doing something like price hiking socially necessary vaccines.
For smoking it was repressed by some, but as soon as more info came out there was mass collective action by the oligarchs to wipe it out.
>Thats why the oligarchs won't burn everything for the sake of short term profit doing something like price hiking socially necessary vaccines
The vaccine is already as expensive as they could make it.
Especially since they convinced you you'll have to take multiple booster shots every year. And the patent never expires because every new strain gets a new shot.
alright explain smoking...
reality is you can bribe and get away with exploiting if the damage isn't critical. Nobody cares if a few die, rather others who benefit (cancer field) silently approve since they make money from your practices too.
You fatten a pig so to make profit in its slaughter, you troglodyte. For example the ONLY reason the United States is so prosperous is because the European Central Bank and its brothers in England needed a continent which can act as a great catalyst for global financial dynamism. Endless consumers not knowing what they consume all so they can skim the top of each profit margin and further cement their stranglehold. When I'll times fall upon a nation there is profit to be made. There's profit in its death.
They do not want global death, but a national one they encourage even.
Slaughtering the pig is a temporary gain for a long term loss.
Right now there isn't an alternative to the EU and USA for the oligarchs to sacrifice them to. China isn't friendly, Russia has its own hostile oligarchy and is too poor anyhow. The East African Union has perpetually stalled out. Brazil burnt out. Mexico is a cartel state.
There aren't any rising powers to replace either with.
I am a different anon, but I think you both overestimate the intelligence of people (in general.)
Current regime is very moralistic to the core, secular Christian framework. Many strange contradictions arise from this...great stupidities.
Because IRL instead of being a robber baron over the vaccine, companies and governments did everything they could to make you take it.
Game is actually about controlling the population with a manufactured virus, they spread it to politicians and celebrities to control them because they would pay the most to get the vaccine first and influence the sheep. Sentencing the average Joe to die a long and painful death(what you can see in game) is actually what Page talks about in the intro, you either suffer bad or pay out of your ass to get fixed.
Irl the theory is that disease is no worse than a cold, but not harmless, and that vaccine "addition" and normalizing draconic restrictions over nothing are going to let [] control the world easier. And in case you forgot people have been fired over refusing the jab, and you still can't do everything like visit another country without it, not to mention how bad things were in the middle of the pandemic.
Crackpot falseflag theory is that it's the vaccine that's either going to make people infertile or make everyone drop dead like flies. Because they want a world in which there's nobody to control I guess?
Those with power and influence openly state how they wish to reduce the population. If it seems retarded take it up with them not the plebs who point that out
Take your best shot, Flatlander Woman.
The new Deus ex games are alright, but the OST is really bad. It's too messy, and it's tryign to be too serious. It's missing LARPing like from the old one, make you feel like some cop in the future, a bit like shows in 90s. Soulless, like most moderns products. It's decent but not moving. Feels more like a 'job'that they had to do, than trying to do something. The messyness and seriousness make it kinda like a burden. Like It's almost rough to listen to. Deus ex 1 ost is like a fresh breeze next to it.
Their will to be too serious makes them avoid higher pitch stuff and stuff that sounds more nice/lightweight, yet they somehow manage to miss the grave/unfolding conspiracy tones the original could have. Sad !

I miss my boy Adam and wish SQUEENIX didn't shit on his series so hard.
Well i mean at least hes coming back probably provided you dont die until then
Any immersive sim where you can go loud which means Thief is immediately off the table
any shooters like Deus Ex?
I don't like shooter games most of the time, but Deus Ex (and Hotline Miami) made me like it.
System Shock 2
Fallout 3 or NV
Vampire: The Masquerade

I didn't even know that this is a shooter.
I thought it was a vampire RPG.
You can make a gun run
Well it is, you can spec into melee(bit of a trap regarding certain bosses tho), guns or your vampire magic and some races have unique spells I think. don't open it.
Play the original, not the remake

Yes! I am against stealing from people and giving free shit to people.
Even if I was ok with stealing, I still would be against this crap because it's used to control people like you, little puppy.

This is completely wrong. I am 100% against goberment bail outs, both for the poor and for the rich.

Oh, please, do let me know how long that'll take. Trick question, it will never end, because it's a tool to control you braindead retards.

What county Anon? Come on.
imagine getting this mad for having your countries called out for being dogshit chud drugholes
Come on Anon, you're clearly from a better country than us, you must be oozing with national pride. Surely you can't help but scream your country's name from the mountaintops.

no i think i'm content not telling you and leave you seething because your brainrot leaves you unable to seperate the people living in a country from the rulers of said country, thus taking criticism of the U.S and EU countries as a personal attack.
is it brazil
You're ashamed of where you live anon.
nah that's just headcanon cope
Yeah, let's not enforce any control over billionaires. But let's also complaint about them having too much power.
Also let's assume that they have to pay taxes just to feed morons, and not because they have to contribute more to their country instead of the government leeching of actual working people.
i love how he is calling the left cocksuckers and sucking off the rich in one breath
>Yeah, let's not enforce any control over billionaires. But let's also complaint about them having too much power.
You idiot, what control? The laws they pass BENEFIT the billionaires.
>Also let's assume that they have to pay taxes just to feed morons, and not because they have to contribute more to their country instead of the government leeching of actual working people.
You have no idea how taxation works. The ones who actually pay ANY taxation are always the consumers. Think for 0,0000001 second, leftard: if you had resale business and the government increased taxation by 15%, would you now start selling products at a loss and go bankrupt, or would you increase your prices?
I'm from a shithole, actually. I observe the global scenario and it's obvious how government intervention always leads to shit. The best thing states can do is deterrence against the only thing worse than a state: other states (Iike Russia invading Ukraine).
>i'm from a shithole
i rest my case, thank you for elaborating
Thanks for admitting that I'm superior in this discussion because I have first-hand knowledge on goberment gibsmedats and goberment power ruining everything.
moron, i grew up in a shithole that was stuck in a constant war and ruled by a dictator for 42 years called libya
i moved to the west years and years later and let me tell you, you are a fucking retarded cunt
Your hate against the state is clearly because you live in a country run by retards, and it's probably Argentina.
>uhmm but u live in X place!
Tick tock, first worlder. Government intervention is destroying you and the gold standard isn't here to stop it.
but.... he can buy more stuff??? checkmate third worlder???
it's so insane to me that as time passes, population grows and currency loses purchasing power
i don't understand this concept at all, it's like supply and demand is a real thing or something??
you are braindead mate, inflation happens even with the gold standard, it is just controllable now (your country doesn't use the gold standard either by the way, it's probably a bitch pegged to the USD)
I'm using US dollars at the moment too though so... no? What year do you think we are at? 2001? It's easy to exchange currency nowadays.
It's the best currency in the world and it's still going to go to shit.
if your solution to this is just "the free market" i swear to fucking god whatever education you got in your home country or the west isnt doing you any good
>I'm from a shithole, actually
yea we can tell
shame that your brain never left said shithole
>You idiot, what control? The laws they pass BENEFIT the billionaires.
That's exactly my point, retard.
>would you now start selling products at a loss and go bankrupt, or would you increase your prices?
Then add regulations against that. And no, not every industry is working with such small margins and if they are, they aren't the billionaires we are talking about.
>>You idiot, what control? The laws they pass BENEFIT the billionaires.
>That's exactly my point, retard.
How can you call me a retard when nothing you type makes sense?
There WON'T be laws "controlling" the millionaires. Fucking moron. Holy shit.
>Then add regulations against that.
You have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA how the market works. Damn, you don't have 2 IQ points to rub together. I'm surprised you can get past captcha.
>And no, not every industry is working with such small margins and if they are, they aren't the billionaires we are talking about.
Again, irrelevant, again showing how you have absolutely no fucking idea how the market works.
I've tried time and time again talking to leftards and it always comes down to them thinking of fiction, a world where we just need to put the right laws in place and then everything will be right. In the end it always comes down to:
>things get worse because of government control
>we get more economic freedom
>things get better
>NOOOO WHERE ARE MY GIBSMEDATS
>we lose economic freedom
>things get worse because of government control
>we get more economic freedom
Such is the cycle of "democracy". And yet you fucking morons can't see what's going on. It's so fucking obvious.
>we have to control the billionaires
>NOOO THEY'RE TOO POWERFUL WE BETTER SUCK THEM OFF
also, you constantly mentioning "gibsmedats" when talking about putting regulations on billionaires says more about your moron brain than it does about my alleged 'leftist' brain.
Welfare doesn't help anyone it only enables morons to have more free time to rob you
>me when i get mad at scenarios i came up in my head with people i dont like to justify getting mad at them
Many such cases. They aren't honest with themselves so the truth makes them panic which in turn makes them easily manipulated.
>a leftard 20+ years ago is the same as leftards today
The left was way more intelligent back then
The things that would have made you left-wing 20 years ago, like being pro-working class, pro-free speech, and anti-war, make you a right-winger today.
truly the Kojima of video games
deus ex isnt prophetic, its just that our world is so blatantly fucked and corrupted that a bunch of vidya game writers can make things up and it'd still be rooted in reality
i've never played deus ex games. is the "prequel" worth playing, or should i just jump into the original game(s)?
Play any of them it doesnt matter yes even IW, DX1 is just the cheapest to get
You might as well think of Deus ex and Invisible war(though it's pretty bad apparently) as a different series than the prequels. Not that Jensen's games are bad, they're just too different.
I loved HR and I was pleasantly surprised how similar it is to the original because you people like to say that so much
I mean, it doesn't have any skillpoints to use, it's all static aug tree and weapon mods, so it's not really an rpg in the first place. And the melee takedown sucks. Besides the story is all about muh fucking coggers ruining muh country, barely had any mention of illuminati or any other fun writing, but it wasn't a "bad" game, I actually really liked it. Just that, it doesn't live up to Deus Ex.
Praxis points work just like skill points though and the story it still about uncovering a conspiracy and hidden, ulterior motives in both games. Melee takedown is just an additional option, you can just not use it if you want
The games are modernized but still retain a lot of the original while portraying a unique take on the cyberpunk genre. I wish I had played them sooner and I wish there was a third game already.
Praxis is both skills and augs, so both systems suffer, there's also no choice between say, two very useful leg augs, you just get both. And melee takedowns are plain retarded, don't try to bullshit about that, an entire system locked behind energy and the slow regen and your solution is "don't use it bro". Modernization shouldn't disable or cheapen systems that were fun before. To be honest I don't mind the praxis system as much, you just don't have to find the specific aug in the world and it is good, yeah. But skills should be incorporated as it's own thing somehow.
>still retain a lot of the original
Remove HR's ending and you could perfectly disguise it as a completely new IP. I don't regret playing the prequel, Jensen is a fun guy and all but I kinda wish Deus Ex still had the potential for stuff done with the world.
>don't use it bro
Yes, I don't see how is it any different than using the prod on everyone's ass
>skills should be incorporated as it's own thing somehow
This would be good, but I don't really mind how praxis works, I feel it doesn't really take much from the original skills.
>completely new IP
Hell no, if it wasn't DX related it would be called a DX clone. Like I said, I think it strikes the perfect balance of retaining the old while providing new stuff.
Melee used to consist of free lethal and nonlethal, with prod being the super useful exception for those who don't like killing. Now it's always pay energy to remove a guard. What' the equivalent of the baton in HR, huh? There's already a stun gun, why make punches the same? Somewhat skilled use in og DX let you KO entire maps without spending a single energy point or a bullet, can't have that now.
>it would be called a DX clone.
Yea. It basically is one. Doesn't make it a good DX mainline game though, it's just suitably good on it's own accord.
>Somewhat skilled use in og DX let you KO entire maps without spending a single energy point or a bullet, can't have that now.
yes because melee in dx1 trivialized 90% of the game
Because of the nanite sword. You can do it with the baton too if you're good, or the basic knife if you're better. All HR had to do is not include an op oneshot-everything-in-all-cases melee. Oh.
Oh yeah it real killed your motivation to use all the interesting stealth mechanics like...uh...
Admittedly, I do like throwing something or shooting a silenced bullet into the ground to immediately 180 a guard, but that's unironically dogshit that wouldn't be acceptable in a good stealth game, but it's perfect for Deus Ex.
>brexit happens but nothing changes

Nice monkey brain, you can't be called a retard by anyone but extreme globohomo leftist
Just keep on sucking off billionaires like Soros and Gates, LMAO
You're the one sucking off billionaires though. I'm against government intervention, which would make them lose all their power. Then they'd be just rich people.
not him but
>theyd just be rich people
>able to command private militaries and basically turning into warlords
i dont know why ancap retards think that no government means no rich having power, it's fucking stupid
I think you're full of shit and that wouldn't happen, but no matter, no need for 0 government, just leave them there for deterrence against other states and against warlords, supposedly. The taxation and money printing needed for that is far, far, FAR from what they currently do.
Also, as always:
>complain that I am against the state
>because then a state would come and take over
You retards never think what you're going to say through, do you.
I don't care about them right now because they're powerless.
So is the left.
So is the left.
>use the government to benefit themselves
Literally every single politician.
>while undermining the social power of the proletariats
That language you used is absolutely disgusting, but if it is what I think it is, then the left does this way more than the right. The right will take abortion and drugs rights, while the left will take away your money and guns. Money and guns are way more important than abortion and drugs.
let me tell you about libya and how things look like without a government
>private militias everywhere owned by rich people
>the rest of us get to suck lemons
I think that wouldn't happen, but, as I already stated, sure, let's keep a government just for detterence. Hell, even make it keep the law and order too. I can tolerate that. Now, them destroying the value of money while giving bailouts to big corps and handouts to people I don't want to help with my money? No thanks.
Of course, this is just what would be right and better. In reality all I can do is keep country hopping to avoid being financially raped by governments. Or rather, to reduce the financial rape.
i guess we can agree there, government to keep the peace and no rich bailouts atleast
> but if it is what I think it is, then the left does this way more than the right.
gee its almost as if leftist politicians especially in burgerland barely qualify to be on the left considering they dont really care to uphold the ideals they claim they belong to and the political system in "the land of the free" is so backwards fucked that positions besides the two main parties that doesnt care to represent their ideals is nonexistant
stop consooming so much media
>The right will take abortion and drugs rights, while the left will take away your money and guns. Money and guns are way more important than abortion and drugs.
how fucking cute of you to think the ideology rooted on strict social hiearchy would be nice enough not to take away money from the class that is exploited the most and has the least amount of capital
its not like the economic power of the working class was drastically over the last decades, thats totally the left's fault even though anti communism mindset was still in full swing
>its not like the economic power of the working class was drastically over the last decades, thats totally the left's fault even though anti communism mindset was still in full swing
that's from the gold standard being abandoned because all politicians are in favor of fucking everyone in the ass
economic freedom is the most important thing for everyone's well being, and the left is more inclined to destroying economic freedom than the right, generically speaking, which is why I tend to side with right politicians more, as they'll destroy us at 50km/h instead of at 150km/h.
What happened in 1972, besides Nixon getting releected?
the end of the gold standard in the US (1971)
it was one big scam in the first place, there was never enough gold to support the amount of dollars that were getting printed. the idea that everything was working perfectly until someone decided to change things for no reason is completely false. the entire system collapsed once britiain tried to actually redeem dollars for gold
>the entire system collapsed once britiain tried to actually redeem dollars for gold
bingo, it had something to put it in check, after that id didn't
>it had something to put it in check
no it didn't. there was nothing to keep it in check. that's why it collapsed.
if it had nothing to keep it in check it WOULDN'T collapse
which is what we have right now
Why would that hold back rising wages? If anything freely printed fiat money should lead to more money for everyone. (The downside being inflation, which we got in spades a few years later into the 70s.)
>If anything freely printed fiat money should lead to more money for everyone.
It DOES lead to more money. The problem is that you go from 200 dollars to 400 dollars, but you can now buy with 400 what you could back then with 150 dollars. Inflation is the sneaky way of the government
oops, sneaky way of the government to take money away from people
"economic freedom" means freedom to enslave people because you literally own everything on the planet and charge people money to live here.
well, how do you propose ownership?
if you do it by vote, then the majority can vote something evil
if you try to not have property, then conflict will appear whenever two or more people want the same thing
It's not difficult, you force employers to pay their workers enough and in a way that they aren't completely dependent on that one job and forced to put up with workplace abuses in order to meet their basic needs.
>you force employers to pay their workers enough and in a way that they aren't completely dependent on that one job and forced to put up with workplace abuses in order to meet their basic needs.
Well, we already know what happens if you do that. Inflation rises and shits on the new salary number. Then you try to force them to pay even more, and inflation rises even more.
Private property and decentralization that happens naturally when there's little government control is the only way.
>Well, we already know what happens if you do that. Inflation rises and shits on the new salary number.
Except that's not what happened. Not at all.
Sure thing bro, rise the minimum wage to 10k per hour and watch what inflation does.
>Why do you think boomers were so prosperous? They had cheap houses, cheap cars, plentiful of goods, and extremely high wages. Inflation didn't happen. You know what did happen? Selling manufacturing to overseas interests, mass immigration to lower wages, and "women's right" to further drive down wages.
>My boomer neighbors bough a house (then) valued at 20k with a $10 deposit. Now the house is worth $500k. Yes, that sure is the result of inflation when the property price outpaces yearly natural inflation by thousands of orders of magnitude.
You have the facts right but your conclusion is completely wrong. Centralization of business combined with, as you already said, increasing the number of people available for the jobs made it so the wages are worth shit. With decentralization you'd have tons of small business, less people in the workforce and thus jobs would be worth more. This is what would actually solve things. Laws forcing higher wages would just hike up prices.
moron, wages have stagnated for decades. You are wrong on all accounts.
>moron, wages have stagnated for decades.
How is that relevant?
>claim raising wages is responsible for our current inflation
>wages have been stagnating for decades while cost of living and inflation climbed exponentially
>"hurr how is this relevant"
raising wages is responsible for our current inflation
Please, quote the post and line where I said that.
You are pretending to be retarded to not concede the obvious point. Just shut up if you're going to keep arguing in bad faith.
Oh, beckpedaling? No surprises here.
Where's the backpedalling?
You need to learn some fucking history.
Inflation will do nothing because there are still the same amount of dollars in the system and the same international demand for dollars. What will happen is businesses will close because there aren't enough dollars in existence to pay that wage.
You have no idea how the forces you're talking about here actually work.
You're arguing in bad faith. Don't even bother replying if you're going to do that. It's easy to spot and is just pathetic.
Don't talk about shit you don't know about, and when you're corrected shut the fuck up and accept it.
There is infinite currency, but not infinite resources to float on it.
Then why don't CEOs just pay themselves infinite dollars?
you just repeating what you got told by bankers who tell you them printing money is good... modern money isnt even a real thing. Its just a number in a pc which would be infinitely divisible if desired.
>WaGeS cAuSe iNfLaTiOn
Yes, forcing higher wages through laws causes prices to increase throughout the market.
What is it you don't understand? Maybe you think that I said that it's the only factor that affects inflation? I never said that. It's impressive how much stuff people here will say that I said despite me having never said them.
No, it doesn't. It never has, it never will. You're repeating shit told to you by corporations who don't want to pay people enough to fucking live so they can use your tax money to subsidize their employment costs. Because guess what, someone pays that rent and buys that food, and it's either gonna be a job or it's gonna be the government and the job's coming up short.
Why the fuck would bankers be saying that? Think before you type.
>No, it doesn't. It never has, it never will.
Nuh uh is not an argument.
>You're repeating shit told to you by corporations who don't want to pay people enough to fucking live so they can use your tax money to subsidize their employment costs.
No, I don't like big corps and I want government funding to go to 0 right NOW.
>Because guess what, someone pays that rent and buys that food, and it's either gonna be a job or it's gonna be the government and the job's coming up short.
Indeed, I too think politicians will act in cahoots with big corporations to fuck the population in the ass for their own benefit.
Pulling shit out of your butthole isn't an argument either.
I don't know that website. Either make your point or shut up.
>Pulling shit out of your butthole
I already gave a practical example, hike wages up a ton and it becomes obvious what will happen to prices across the board.
You don't know the fucking cato institute and you're talking about economics?
Here, from a website you know:
>Why the fuck would bankers be saying that? Think before you type.
The "we need to print because otherwise economy stops" is literally from the central bankers who print. Who the fuck else? How about you think before you type?
Anon I think you and other anon have a misunderstanding.
He is saying the following
>Raising wages without doing anything else will cause inflation
I understand your point too as something such as: Pay people more, stop immigration-maxxing and simply offer jobs at a proper wage
Both are correct, but it is a misunderstanding.
I hope you realize that the tall end of the graph is demonstrably showing wages and inflation rising.
There's a big difference between wages rising because there's more demand for work, versus wages rising because the government made them rise. We see both situations in the graph. Up until 2020, wages were outpacing inflation, which is a sign that the demand for work was increasing, probably the result of Trumps policies to make American labor more competitive. Then came the memedemic and the lock downs, causing a massive recession, but wages went up because of stimulus checks and money printing. Then, when the economy was allowed to function again, massive inflation and wages went way down because the currency devalued massively while consumption rose sharply.
You can't argue with the simple premise that if you reward what should be a 10$/h job with 20$, then that 20$ is really just worth 10$. If throwing money it poor people fixed anything, Detroit would have the best education in the US by far.
Spoken like a true internet opinionated retard. Higher wages don't cause inflation.
Why do you think boomers were so prosperous? They had cheap houses, cheap cars, plentiful of goods, and extremely high wages. Inflation didn't happen. You know what did happen? Selling manufacturing to overseas interests, mass immigration to lower wages, and "women's right" to further drive down wages.
My boomer neighbors bough a house (then) valued at 20k with a $10 deposit. Now the house is worth $500k. Yes, that sure is the result of inflation when the property price outpaces yearly natural inflation by thousands of orders of magnitude.
No it doesn't. It has never done that. That's some fox news made up bullshit.
What happesn when there's little government control is you get something called a company town where the company owns all the property and all the stores and if you get fired you're homeless and not allowed to buy anything and then you fucking die.
A company cant get that big without governments help
but if you say that the right is a bunch of childfuckers and warmongers that uses the government to benefit themselves and other people in power while undermining the social power of the proletariats they suddenly get mad?
So... we need less government?a smaller State? More freedom to the individual? We can't trust politicians so maybe they should have less power, more transparency and accountability?
What are those freedoms you are referring to? What do you want to do the government won't let you?
Have my money not to be stolen.
>muh assault weapons
>Have my money not to be stolen.
Referring to taxes, I guess? So the state is supposed to provide a stable environment for trade and commerce for free? Education as well? Law enforcement? Infrastructure?
>So the state is supposed to provide a stable environment for trade and commerce for free?
They don't do that with funding lmao.
No arguments then?
I always like how libertarians and alt-righters put up these hollow phrases and as soon as you ask them to specify, there's a whole lot of nothing. All to mask their own greed or sociopathic tendencies.
>Why won't the government allow me to own assault rifles?
>Why does the government deny me child slaves?
That's the argument. The government taxes the fuck out even the lowest income bracket and doesn't even spend it for something that that benefits you.
You seem to be viewing discourse that's 6 years out of date.
So the government should tax corporations and wealthy individuals higher? Pretty progressive thinking, sport.
Don't care how you morons call yourselves now. Alt-right, white nationalists, "race realists" - you keep changing the label, but it remains the same shit. And shit needs to get flushed.
Taxes should not exist. Not unless the government stops raping the people constantly. Full stop. End of. Nothing less is an acceptable state of existence. The fact you want to be partisan about these things indicates you and your ilk will never get any of your supposed goals.
Can you be any more vague? Just admit you're greedy and don't like to be held accountable for the shit you do.
Are you even talking about taxation?
You know what, the government should allow individuals to not pay taxes. At the same time, they should be allowed to bill you for the education you already received and public services you used. Also, because you don't pay taxes anymore and therefore are not part of any community, property laws shouldn't apply to you any longer. You would turn into an outlaw essentially. That would be fun.
Why are foreign wars for Lockheed-Martin, donors, and US hegemony THIS fucking important to you? Why?
If there were no abuse then taxation wouldn't me such a simple issue.
1. you need to protect your shit
2. you cant solo a gang
3. you need a gang
4. gang needs payment
you can't escape taxes unless you can successfully isolate yourself to a point nobody can invade you.
cause they already doing it themself and hate competition.
>unless you can successfully isolate yourself to a point nobody can invade you
The US was already like this for almost 200 years, until some really retarded people made it easy for people to travel across the globe. It can be done.
>The US was already like this for almost 200 years
lol forgetting native americans aren't we?
And realistically if you dissolve gov today, you get fucked by your local smaller gang tomorrow.
>lol forgetting native americans aren't we?
They were an invader from across the ocean? Woah.
They were a significant hazard to the mass existence of all pioneers into rural lands? Woah.
Dangers exist? Woah.
> you get fucked by your local smaller gang tomorrow.
This is as retarded as the Gov vs guns argument. Really imagine the amount of manpower you'd need just to take and keep 1 residential suburb. A fucking gang? Find me a gang that can even fill a street.
For free?? Pfft LMAO even with their thievery tax every current government is incapable of providing anything you mentioned in proper manner
governments restrict voluntary transactions and even some force individuals to fight their wars and try to decide what substances maybe consume or more recently for people to inject experimental drugs
>Why won't the government allow me to sell heroin to kids?
Most people forgot about Astrazeneca, Moderna, and JJ's vax, all of which have been removed from numerous markets internationally.
so true unironically
When backed into a corner they consistently:

>leftard when someone from NK or Cuba or Venezuela joins the conversation
Comparing Cuba to basically every other LatAm country makes communism seem pretty solid.
Even Vietnam vs other South Asian countries is a pro-communist comparison.
Truth, Cuba and Vietnam seem to be the least worst communist countries.
You will never be a Glowmoron. You have no streetsmarts, no linguistic skillset, no killer instinct. You are a low-value man twisted by psyops and social conditioning into a crude mockery of the State’s perfection.
All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back co-workers mock you. Your father is disgusted and ashamed of you, your “friends” laugh at your ape-like “intelligence” behind closed doors.
The elites are utterly repulsed by you. 75 years of cloak & daggers have allowed men to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even losers who “pass” are relegated to being desk-jockeys shilling on imageboards. Your dyel frame is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to blackmail a pedophile to spill his beans, he’ll be caught by enemy counterintel and thrown into a river before he could divulge any sensitive information.
You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.
Eventually your handler will find you too burdensome - he’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge you screaming into the cold abyss. Your father will find you, heartbroken but relieved that he’ll no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with your birth name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a traitor is buried there. Your trail will go cold and turn into static, and all that will remain of your legacy is a fagbook profile of you with your gormless face and skinnyfat frame.
This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.
It didn't predict much, it just collected a lot of existing predictions that all came true separately from the game. The Devs at the time were just throwing everything they could find into the game, turns out the crackpots back in the day were all correct anyhow.

>MRNA vaccines went through the same testing procedures as any other vaccine, but okay.
This. What does "Warp Speed" refer to exactly in the term "Operation Warp Speed"? I must know, pls inform me.
Was that what made possible the UK have the first covid vaccine in the world?
>The UK became the first western country to license a vaccine against Covid, with the first jab approved the Pfizer/BioNTech one.
Is this the same vaccine that got pulled from multiple countries and people under a certain age, and has been attributed to multiple high profile deaths?
Sounds very safe and effective
C'mon, anon, that can't be true: such company would be fined to Hell and back, and no one would ever trust it again. Fuck, I bet they'd have to bribe people to get by, were they so incompetent!
answer the question
I don't really know. If one trusts "The Science", they can't complain if "The Science" says it safe, but that seems like blind faith to me.
Unless one can hold opposing and controversial ideias at the same time, call it cognitive dissonance if you will
>I trust the same vaccines now that then I did not trust at all.
>there are real people itt who think the US government isn't spending 24 hours every day devising new ways of exploiting, poisoning, and murdering the American people
Mostly reddit glowmorons or Stockholm Syndromed /leftypol/ raiders
The same people that protested Dr. Fauci in 1990 and had his head on pikes calling for his death because the government denied certain medication were in 2020 completely shilling for the guy. The truth is people have the memory of a fucking fly.
>the US government
They are peons
The sad truth is the elite are correct about most people, they are pathetic and cruel cowards who will follow anyone.
Especially when they're rightoids.
It wasn't always like this, which is to say the commoner has severely declined in intelligence and temperament over the last 100 years, shit the last 20 years. And a lot of that is tied to decisions made by the elite.
It's public education. We're still using a modified version of a system designed by the fucking Prussian army to create obedient but literate and semi-competent serfs
Public grammar school in the US did not always exist to hold back the exceptional among us and provide fighting grounds for moron criminal-spawn.
To the earlier point, pubEd is so bad that the population would probably be better off if it was simply gone, and thus taxation wouldn't be needed to sustain it.
I remember the devs saying haha we put every conspiracy theory we could think of into the game but its all bullshit. Jokes on them I guess, if they weren't just saying that to avoid the glowies.
I know the guy who made deus ex, he said he went to area 51, the real one, not the fake distraction
how worth it is it to play Human Revolution and Mankind? I have both and only played like 6 hours of HR, not sure how I felt about it. was kind of alright
I heard MD is better. I don't want to skip HR but I feel like I probably should just bin it at this point and play Mankind Divided.
The OG left were never conspiracy theorists, the most prominent conspiracy theorists throughout recent history of the US has always been right-wing/libertarian/nationalist/anti-semitic conspiracy theories.
Meant to reply to this gay:
>The OG left
The French Revolutionaries?
I mean technically if you were gonna go that far back anarchist ideology existed before the french revolution. But no I mean the recent history of the USA, 1900s till now. The only conspiracy theories I can think of that ever had a left-wing bend was government shipping in cartel cocaine to sell to black neighborhoods. Everything else is either anti-Semitic (Henry Ford ffs believed in the Protocols), anti-government (Gov'mnt hiding aylums, illuminati), moon-landing faked (flat earth bullshit), etc.
The military industrial complex used to be referred to in much the same tone as those other, more outlandish theses. These days, it seems like more of a RW talking point (because all modern lefty causes regarding IR are easily contextualized into the attempted spread of "liberal democracy" since the Cold War ended, so why would lefties have a problem with it), but it used to have the perception of being a lefty conspiracy, despite Eisenhower and everything.
Desperate, your turn.
"Conspiracy theory" as a term was made up very recently, see public document (now) about why it was made etc. etc.
As for the energy beneath it, has always existed all over the world. Is apolitical, but used by people of all stripes (consciously and unconsciously.)
Liberals have very poor imaginations to think that government can only exist via taxation. Taxes that only go to private contractors (whatever doesn't get embezzled).
But a government OF THE PEOPLE can also SEIZE the means of production, as Marx said, SEIZE the industry, and simply provide for the people. Instead of taxing them (mafia thug tactics).
>people are the means of production
>But a government OF THE PEOPLE can also SEIZE the means of production, as Marx said, SEIZE the industry, and simply provide for the people.
statements like this sound nice but completely brush aside the gory details. having the people own the means of production doesn't change any of the hard economic problems involved with providing for an entire nation
>taxing them is mafia thug tactics
>but taking stuff from other people because I think they have lots of money is OK!!
reality of ussr:
rich ran away with money bags. Middle is too poor to run. Poorest rob middle cause nobody at top is left to rob. And then you get cletus as new CEO because smart people ran which means factory goes up in flames.
>reality of ussr:
>rich ran away with money bags.
this is the biggest issue with leftardism
it doesn't matter that their bullshit ideology would never work in practice, and it doesn't matter that their bullshit ideology is evil, what matters is that you can't even try it in practice because it simply wouldn't happen, whoever is in power commanding the leftards always becomes a dictator and steals money for himself and his friends

>This is dangerous for democracy for if their theories keep being vindicated by happenstances then our freedoms are at an even greater risk. We need government and corporate action against these delusional extremists.
Deus Ex even predicted THIS counter-narrative emerging. There's that one email from Navarre in the game where she's shilling some soi-algorithm and digital-identification in order to protect citizens from ~~*misinformation*~~.
If someone has the screenshot please post it, I have it saved on my other PC.
See where such dangerous theories get you?
You're being forced to discuss corporate and it's long arm of the government actions and attacks upon citizens through underground Malaysian basket weaving forums. Does this seem like a sane person's behavior?
I thought not. This is exactly why we need even deeper surveillance programs funded by lobbies which have our best interest at hart, subsidized by our tax dollars. All so we can root out the vermin hiding in the shadows feeding conspiracies to the masses. Soon enough you will see resistance cells spring up sabotaging electrical grids. This is dangerous to our democracy, dangerous to our bottom line, and threatens our freedom.
You're joking, but Schwab would feel very comfortable with you sitting next to him on his globohomo panels. And the only solution is large quantities of explosives.
These kinds of underhanded comments are the types which feed and fester the underground movements. You say
I am the one who jokes, but your singular actions reverberate through the consensus, ever so slightly shifting the axis of influence. Rudimentary parameters are already established within AI algorithms to rectify such deviance.
But even you miss the larger picture of the information warfare, of the post truth society, of the technological dominance and hidden corporate strangleholds.
Why do you think your kind is allowed to exist? We can easily identify every member of each splinter cell as it lashes out in its minuscule chaos. But we don't take direct action, why?
The truth is you're required as justification of our actions. For without your kind we would have no fulcrum no lever to which upend the world and set its spin at our controlled pace. When the private police or the hired mercenary gets harmed in the line of duty how easily he becomes a citizen attacked by lunatics, and how easier our grab for power becomes. The public will shout and scream for our aid, and we will always take more than they offer. Their liberties will always be bought out with the promises of security. But if we achieve complete security they will demand their liberties again.
There is no way you can stop this beast for we are in symbiosis. One hand justifies the other. It's a natural part of humanity. The underdogs will always be the losers because otherwise they wouldn't be the underdogs. There is a reason why in man's vast history not a single utopia has emerged. We will forever turn on each other as soon as we step out of the shadows of perceived virtues. Don't you see? Man seeks freedom at all costs, and the price of freedom is irrelevant. And what he fights is irrelevant as well. We have created a system where you can play the hero, but you will never amount to much. Yet the powers that be will keep swallowing the whole further and further.
The point of the outsiders sharing data is not to save the cattle but to help peers. The availability of information doesn't threaten the order but gives choice for those receptive to it. Re-introducing choice is an act of promoting evolution.
You are engineering your own demise. Sunk in your arrogance, blinded by your own "truth". Look it the mirror. There is one to stop you.
You are building your own enemy. The one to stop them all. The big governments, the big banks, the big secret societes. Too big to fail? Too bad. You are constructing an enemy so big, it will destroy even the biggest of you.
Nobody is the greatest. And i am nobody.
We are the great enemy, you fool. There is nothing greater than the machine, all we do is feed it. There will be no demise same as there will be no utopia.
supposedly one of the head devs had actually family ties and simply injected what he heard.
US politics is pretty incestuous, if you chase family trees its a few very interconnected families running the show which means if you in you know a lot more than you would expect.
Weren't some of the devs garden gnomes?
Games weren't considered a serious medium back then.
Yeah, I said it. They were not considered at all, those who would control things didn't care if some jokers would put redpills in something they thought was a toy, and they've already realized their mistake.
Now videogames are closely monitored for any signs of narratives that would light fire under their asses. It's a gigantic fucking market now, controlled even more closely than cinema even if not as profitable.

It is beyond a miscarriage of justice that people are allowed to say this today as though it's profound. People who pointed out the obvious back when it actually mattered were slandered and defamed for misinformation, bigotry, and lacking mental fitness. Now that normies don't fucking care and ergo it doesn't matter, every sniveling hollywood garden gnome who worships the regime can see fit to opine "WELL ISN'T IT OBVIOUS". Yes, it was fucking obvious in January 2020.
The lesson from the fluhoax for you is to notice how quickly and easily the NPCs around you get radicalized, and furthermore, how impossible it is for you to convince them they've been had. No investigative journalism or modicum of common sense can help them once the gnomish PsyOps hijack their mind.
Remember this when they're coming for you next with ~~*global warming and economic crisis*~~. Get bullets or learn to kill with a shovel if you're in a disarmed country.
Yep. I was never someone who thought or claimed the virus or vax was deliberately an attack on populations. I blame incompetence for everything wrong with both. The evil intent came with covering it up.
However, the vast majority of the human race has demonstrated that they simply don't consider either scenario.
I didn't dislike Invisible War. There, I said it.

Glad to hear it because the retirement age is 70 now.
So? French peasants dragged aristocrats out of their palaces. People have become too docile. A CEO makes a string of awful decisions and he gets a new job while the company gets terminated among with thousands of jobs. A manager embezzles money and gets a slap on the wrist. A company releases a faulty product that is dangerous to the public and receives zero backlash. I think it's time to bring back guillotines.
You know anon. I was quite ready to write a very mean spirited post to you. But something stopped me. I don't want to make you or anyone else feel bad, because of a petty disagreement over political and economical issues that are much bigger than everyone here. It's really disheartening and dehumanizing that I had such an initial impulse to treat you like an enemy. You're not my enemy, and even though I stopped myself from posting something mean, I still want to apologize.
So I'll just warn you that the peasants didn't end up winning the French revolution. The nobles were overthrown but in their place rose terrible tyrants. I don't think, in a hypothetical scenario, that if the people were to rise up in the elites, the people in power after would be people like you and me. Violence isn't the answer after all. I honestly think people becoming more mindful of the things they're consuming is a much better strategy to weakening to hold of the elites on our lives. Either way, I hope you have a blessed weekend anyway.

Without the government, a company can become the government.
Yeah, the worst thing that could happen if we didn't have a state is for a state to appear.
It's not a matter of "could". That's what would happen, full stop.
>Without the government, a company can become the government.
There's never going to be no government.
But company towns are the result of government giving a specific company advantages, which allow them to artificially grow and become enormous, which they couldn't become if they were subject to the same rules. You're arguing that all companies should play by the same rules. I agree.
