  1. I’m playing Submarine Titans right now.
    It’s an RTS from the year 2000. It’s easy to compare it to Star Craft and Age of Empires, and it’s not quite as good as either of them in terms of gameplay, but damn if the sprites and the music isn’t comfy.

    The late 80’s to the early 00’s had all of this great underwater stuff at the fringes of mainstream culture. I think it was almost entirely fueled by James Cameron’s obsession with the ocean, filming his movie Abyss underwater which released in ’89 and later the Titanic, and I think even funding some of Dr. Robert Ballard’s Titanic wreck exploration, but you got stuff like Seaquest DSV which was Star Trek on a submarine, the Brain Powerd anime from Tomino, which was Gundam underwater, and then I’d say stuff like Super Metroid with Maridia and the entirety of MGS2 also tapped into that vibe. Metroid in general has a feeling like you’re underwater, with a lot of the aliens resembling sea life even outside of the water areas. Idk I feel like there’s more I could think of if I put my mind to it, but you also had, in the early 00’s a bunch of games set on beaches, Mario Sunshine and Wind Waker being two big examples.
    Interesting to think about these trends.

      >apparently the summertime was when the developers and the community lost their shit with each other and the crisis over the direction of the game has never been this bad
      what a waste of time

      also no one even bothers talking about this game even here
      all the military historyhomosexuals on these boards must only be army and not naval history if even World of Tanks got at least a tiny bit of attention

      • wargaming is kind of a black sheep here, never really figured it out why. maybe because of its aggressive grinding, ludicrous p2w and shitty community

    • I unironically like it. Even if it’s f2p. Ships are hot, gamepaly is fun if you’re not comitative. But future submarines will kill all fun. What the fuck are they thinking?

      • No one in the community seems to pick up on the trend of the developers running out of ships to come up with developing for sale and releasing to whales with infinite money to burn
        there’s only so many historical blueprints to make and now they’re cranking out shit made up of whole cloth

        but submarines are a whole new class of ships to start creating and releasing more ships for and even if the gameplay is piss it’s still new gameplay and new art and whatever that they can show off as new shit for the game

        • not really. they are running out of ships for the nations which are preferred by the main audience, like germany. italy had the largest fucking navy of the axis but still has only two branches, because the big dough comes from autistic wehraboos who want more fantasy super battleships

  2. There was some pretty cool and autistic game about subs during WWII. It was MP and you and your team had to manually handle everything on your own. Does anyone remember the name of it?

      • The Tokyo Express Mod is trying to improve it but its still retarded enough to just clash their own ships against each other so you are forced to keep ship collisions for the AI off

        that reminds me, any soviet campaigns for Cold Waters yet?

        Epic mod adds them and much more, even playable surface ships

        • aight, thats a buy for me then
          since we’re talking bout cold war naval warfare, ya ready for the true successor for Jane’s Fleet Command? "Sea Power : Naval Combat in the Missile Age"

            Developers said scripting is 50% done, but I doubt it will be out in 2021.They’re pretty based. Even fixed inaccuracies in their Alfa model

          • the sort of folks who wait for a sequel to one of Jane’s can easily to wait out another fucking decade, goddamn I haven’t heard that name uttered here.

      • Play Epic Mod. It’s default mod for CW because it improves a lot. Especially AI. You can even try playing Kirov. Though it’s 1 vs battlegroup

      • In WoS you control surface ships, subs and planes, nothing with a level of detail of other games that concentrate on just one vehicle/ship type but its not simplistic either.

        Yeah i’m pretty hyped about it, i didn’t like modern naval warfare but Dangerous Waters changed my idea.

  3. Can someone explain to me why I get so uneasy when looking at anything sea related? Just looking at this picture makes me uncomfortable. I really dislike big mechanical objects in the sea like huge ass ships and submarines. If I was in the middle of the sea and a huge cruise ship would stop to rescue me, I would probably die of a heart attack
