Military grills are a weakness of mine, so even I say the bottom is an improvement.

Yeah, it was the early 2000 trend of everything needing to get more "realistic" mixed with the gritty shit of 1999.
That trend seems to be just about to be dead.

Just spreading the word.

Also interesting to see an entire genre collectively morphing to something slower and shittier.

I guess that's why I like DUSK so much. It goes back to you being fast if you have skill. You're only really fast if you can strafe bunny hop. Your duck is a slide, that will duck under projectiles by the way, but you'll have to go build up speed again with bunny hops.

I also feel that it makes for far less frustratig difficult games. GoW in co-op is pretty bullshit at times and you can only really die your way forward at times - at highest difficulty of course because it's just too easy otherwise. Likewise, CoD only really has bullshit to offer as difficulty. You're slow, the enemies all have hitscan weapons and you absolutely must tank hits no matter what. If you're at a particularly part where enemies won't stop spawning until you hit a certain trigger, you'll just have to attempt to run through the fire and hope the AI lets you live. That's just not fun.
Compare that to older shooters where you more often than not can dodge most if not all enemy fire but only if you're good enough. Now that's a challenge!

PS: Voice, you're way too predictable.

Girls und Panzer is the best tank show ever made.

Modern waifus referencing Dairanger. Perfection.

The thing is, someone should make a Rommel video game.
It seems such games actually totally already exist it's just you have to deal with Saturn emulation or understand moon language.

(on a serious note, I think modern strategy games have at least north african campaigns)


Japanese tank game back then.
Japanese tank game now.
In a hindsight, Krautweeb-ism was not a mistake if the alternative is THIS.
Sometimes you don't know what you have until it's gone.

The thing is, someone should make a Rommel video game. It could be a tank simulator where you're up against incredible odds a la Xcom, and you have to use perfect strategy to make sure you don't get all your tanks bled out before you can accomplish your objectives. They would start you out with your entire complement of tanks, straight off, but resupplies would be limited and you wouldn't get any additional tanks. Combat would probably be turn-based. It could be RTS but I'm concerned the game would move too fast for players to micromanage every tank unit. Your tanks would be damn near invincible from the front. Like I said, the real danger of the game would be losing tanks here and there until you reach a tipping point where you're not able to finish the last third of the game.

The Desert Fox's only crime was to be born German, as far as I can tell. He's perfect for a tactics game. Usually the player character is a nameless commander, but making the PC Rommel would fit wonderfully.
