>>637556146The Squad devs are huge faggots but the game is alright. What really sells it is the random dudes RPing as troopers on voicechat.>>637556970This is based on the first movie. Lore can be summed up as you're space fascist soldier dude shooting big bug.

how is it performance wise ? And how is the progression ?

Starts chugging once there are giant hordes of bugs on the screen no matter your PC. Crashes sometimes.>And how is the progression ?There isn't a lot. Most weapons are still locked and in development. There is also only a single map you can play.Devs already said they won't support modding or community servers for this which is also kinda shitty but no idea if they were forced by the license giver to drop that.

>>637566645doubt the game is much more different from your regular life in the outbacksorta like germans spending all day working, and then coming home & playing work simulator

>>637556146The gamemode you unlock at rank 5 seems to be the meat of the game since you can freely explore the map and gather ressources, but it's very chaotic without proper communication and often games go nowhere because you can barely do anything alone besides lugging ore and gas back to base.It's missing some vehicles imo and more content but it's fun. The game definitely needs better feedback when shooting bugs too, EDF is way better in that regard.

>>637567430You have a base where you can build structures and have to explore the map for ressources (which you use to build structures). You can only build stuff around your base and there's no tech tree or research.

>>637568282I was obsessed with this show as a kid. It was so good.

>>637568276Pure chaos in a fun way. Prepare to die a lot in the middle of a stampede of bugs breaking down the walls all around you.

>>637558117>Support every current political western mainstream thing. (BLM, Ukraine etc.)How did they end up making a Starship Troopers game of all things

>>637568793I have no idea but the license got a game last year as well.store.steampowered.com/app/1202130/Starship_Troopers_Terran_Command/

>>637568793the starship troopers movie is cool no matter what the intent of the director was. if he didn't want people to like the federation then he shouldn't have made them so goddamned cool. on top of that, it's progressive as fuck and has men and women soldiering in it and the leader of the federation for most of the movie is a black woman so it has a lot of mixed signals.

>>637567756Anon, china has had more civil wars than any other people in history, not just by total number, but by percentage per ten year period

>>637567023>gather resourcesoh no

>>637567023The rank five mode sold me on the game. It lets you plan and spend much more time making a good base, though even the best base can get supremely fucked by a bad grenadier spawn which seems apt for Starship TroopersFor any friends just reaching it, abuse voice comms to convince people to NOT slot in the gas until you have gotten at least all four bunkers built around the ARC. Bunkers are incredibly powerful, combined with well made kill zones out of walls and short walls

>>637563072so you haven't read the book. because anyone who has read the book already knows how fucking fun and awesome a game with the book as source would be to play.

>>637568282this show was amazingthe writing was really good from what I recall

>>637563672that is all press kit and junket rationalising after the fact. all LIES verhoeven made up after the movie came out and bombed due to his ORIGINAL comments.his original story before he had to frantically cover his ass was that he never even read an interns cliff notes summary of the book. he had an already to go script, and just slapped a starship troopers esque skin on it and went with it.his "MUH SATIRE REEE" is just a fucking cope and seethe that everyone hated his movie

>>637570136I liked the book better when it was sci-fi Full Metal Jacket. The actual starship trooper stuff put me to sleep

>>637563672was the writer even a right winger? I thought I heard he wrote books that were pretty left wing and collectivist too?

>>637566645it could be worse bro trust met. japanon

>>637568282it wasn't cancelled. it was sued to death for NOT HAVING THE RIGHTS to the IP

Be kind of nice if they manage to work brain bugs into the game somehow. Maybe make them a possible high priority target in the refinery game mode or maybe a really slow moving enemy that instantly kills players and raises the infestation meter drastically with each player it kills

>>637563672>Verhoeven determined that he could use the basic plot to satirize and undermine the book's themes by deconstructing the concepts of totalitarianism, fascism, and militarism, saying: "All the way through I wanted the audience to be asking, 'Are these people crazy?'"And the hilarious thing is that the movie completely misses the mark.> completely egalitarian utopia with apparently zero social or economic issues that doesn't discriminate against anyone> this supposedly fascistic, militaristic society doesn't even forcibly draft people, everyone joins by choice> non-citizens don't seem to have any downsides from not joining the service, Rico's parents live comfortably in a fucking mansion in Beunos AiresAnd his intent was that I'm supposed to be repulsed by this? Lmao. If it wasn't for the unsubtle PSAs scattered throughout the film or the Nazi uniforms at the end I could have mistaken the film for a ringing endorsement.

>>637570562He explored a lot of different ideas in his writing and didn’t fit into a neat categorical box as far as his politics went.

>>637570562Anything good is inherently right wing so yes.

>>637570562I guarantee you that 99% of people who claim that Starship Troopers is "fascist" have never actually read it., or any other Heinlein for that matter.

>>637571426was the whole "service guarantees citizenship" strictly military in the book like it was in the movie, or did it have like other options for public service to gain it?

>>637570562Stranger in a Stranger Land especially is very left leaning, and that's what great about Heinlein. He doesn't pigeonhole himself and uses sci-fi to explore 20th century social and political dilemmas. People who call him fascist over Starship Troopers are idiots who never actually read any of his books

>>637570562I can’t speak for Heinlen himself, but my understanding is that the book was a much subtler critique of totalitarianism and fascism. Verhoeven is completely allergic to the concept of subtlety, however, so he took the book at face value and just accidentally reiterated its themes in a louder, more obvious way while thinking he was parodying it.

>>637571426most of the political stuff is told in the most obnoxious way possible like the 6 page strawman rant in Stranger where christians are called cannibals. Its always so longwinded and directed at people so weak that I can't imagine its not his true opinions when it happens

>>637571491It's been a long time since I read it but I always understood it to include a broad range of public service. I could be wrong but that's the impression I got. Either way the basic idea is that you need to have skin in the game if you want to be a citizen. If not, that's fine too, you can just be a "civilian".

>>637571169that's because verhoeven is a lying revisionist HACK making shit up after the fact to cover his ass for him being a fucking retard.

>>637567430There's three games modes. The first game mode is basically an objective game mode where you go across the map completing objectives before setting up a transmitter, building a base around it, and then defending it until it transmits some data or some shit before making a rush to extraction. The second game mode is basically a bad defense mission. Basically you've got to set up a refinery, a mobile base, as well as ore and gas extractors. Delivering ore from the ore extractors gives you resource points which you use to build up your base while delivering gas from the gas extractors progresses the main objective. During the course of the match the infestation meter will steadily rise but can be temporarily lowered by killing high value targets that occasionally pop up. Supply drops will occasionally show up too which give you rocket launchers and shit. Once you've gathered enough gas it'll trigger the horde at which point you need to defend the refinery for a set amount of time before extracting. The second game mode feels like it's where the class system really stands out. Defenders are best suited for defending the base and short range patrols since they're a bit slower and the SAW they unlock has very limited ammo, operators are best suited for gathering ore and gas since they can carry two canisters at once, and assault troopers are best suited for retrieving supply drops and hunting high value targets since their jump jets give them the best maneuverability.

>>637571654>my understanding is that the book was a much subtler critique of totalitarianism and fascismCan you elaborate?

>>637571491no. the book mentions any dangerous job where you CAN die as an example of service.

>>637563672>>637571654>this obsessed schizo againthe book is garbage, get over it already

>>637572447this poster is retarded. or a communist. same thing really

>>637572447>Can you elaborate?No, because I, too, have not fully read the book.

>>637556146its a good early access game, but its built to be a live service game. even squad has micro transactions. so this one will get micro transactions soon

>>637570714No, that was strictly an issue of when Sony tried to sell the show to SyFy and only SyFy lost the rights to air it. The show was cancelled because of budget problems, issues with the 4 different animation studios they hired to produce it which resulted in networks buying a full 40 episodes and only getting 5 a month, leaving them to air them inconsistently and in retarded orders to fill the time slots.

>>637573956So far it's good for the most part. The only time I've really noticed my framerate drop significantly is during the horde sections towards the end of the missions

>>637574639The OVAs are based more on the book while the movies kind of do their own thing for the most part. Never watched the third movie. After watching the second movie I decided to skip over 3 since the second movie was an absolute dumpster fire and felt more like a low budget Thing rip-off than a Starship Troopers movie

>>637575027the OVA's are a stealth rebooty/retcon to get as close to the books as they can make the movie setting get.

>>637571602That book really became a hot mess after Mike stopped being a sperg.

>>637563672>>637570562>>637571491>>637571654The book was just a story about a kid doing enough push ups to get into a mech suit. It's super different from the movie, the only things that are similar are the names of characters and factions, and a human vs alien war. It wasn't about fascism, that was Verhoeven's lazy excuse for not reading it fully. The system of government used isn't fully explained, but it seemed any government service job grants you "citizenship", which only really gives you the right to vote, which is even deemed worthless because it made no real difference to the average person's life, everyone was already comfortable and happy because all borders and nations are gone. Politically the book is a mix, funny enough if it came out today it'd probably be considered a lefty book because of the "globohomo" government and it has a lot of female empowerment (women make superior pilots and drivers because they have better necks or something)The only reason libs probably seethe about it today (aside from the movie) is because there's a part about child discipline, and it blames societal moral decay on people not spanking their kids because it would hurt their feelings. And then everyone spanked their kids again and society went back to normal. This is the same part where Rico gets whipped for fucking up. (IIRC he hit a superior, or fucked up hard in a simulation, can't remember) Either that or they're idiots who think any army = fascismAlso there's nothing wrong with liking the movie or anything, just pointing out that they're not the same and anyone using the book for either side politically is retardedtl;dr: Book has no fascism, it's about "wow cool robot, join the army today"

>>637571426>>637571491The book is pretty cool. I honestly barely remember the fighting parts, I mostly remember the way this the super militarized society was formed. I might be wrong and misremembering, but it went like that>Basically, bugs attack>World government mostly shits the bed, but some military higher ups pull through>Said higher ups become super popular and basically become world government>War with the bugs continues, it's a slog>Generals in charge of humanity come up with "service guarantees voting rights" thing, with the reasoning being "If you aren't willing to endure and endanger yourself for the good of the country then you don't get a say in how to govern it"Pretty cool, but only makes sense in context of the book, because bugs are an existential threat, and fighting them is "good". IRL wars rarely done for "good", more for enrichemnt of government fucks.Anyway, "moon is a harsh mistress" was a more fun Heinlein's book. but starship troopers is good too

>>637581350>>637581709show an example of good fps then

none of my friends want to commit to getting the game, are people talking a lot in game chat? or am i doomed to quietly kill bugs if im a solo player

>>637581709it's not generic, it has heckin' fortnite building

>>637582059If you call people screaming the movie quotes over proximity voice chat "talking"

>>637582059they talk a lot. the voice comms are people fucking around spamming quotes from the movies

>>637582059it's like a dam. Once one or two people start chatting, lots of others join in. I've had a few quiet matches, but for the most part, I'm ten hours in and recall lots of banter and dialogue, including a match wehere we were all screaming at a japanese guy for slotting the arc gas early, and then turned it around and got a 16/16 extraction

>>637582241that sounds pretty based ngl

>>637582295It's half the fun of playing the game

>>637582241Movie quotes are fantastic. People are enjoying themselves, having fun, hamming it up as injured guys.Beats the fuck out of faggots trying to talk tactical or screaming about game meta

>>637563923Or maybe you just are that stupid?

>>637582059This has been the most active voice chat game I’ve played in a good long whilePeople shout movie memes, communicate and Cal out what objectives need help, someone started role playing as a federation news crewThe combination of a proximity chat AND a global teams comm makes for fun talk.It is pretty bare but if they keep to their “early access for one year” tempo and deliver steady updates with more weapons and biomes and enemy types then I can see the game being a golden egg for coop horde shooting


>>637582117PR had FOB building even before fornite

>>637582442I'm tempted to buy it just because of that, I miss playing multiplayer games where everyone is just having fun.

The framework of the game is good, the huge lack of content is not

>>637575548So its just a free mod from squad but now they charge money, no thanks chud I'm good with shit optimised squad

>>637582543Thats fine, just make them good.

>>637575548eeeh hmmm, normal mode?

>>637579849Militaristic, sure - I mean it's about a kid joining the military to fight an interstellar war, so that's sort of inherent. But nationalistic? There aren't even any "nations" in the book that I remember, it's basically a united Earth government.

>>637558117Canadians=I will automatically not support them. White Canadians are filth and a disgrace to all people in all countries. They are brainwashed garbage and human scum of the earth that worship their own genocide. Fuck them. I am not buying this strictly on the basis that they are Canadians by default.


>>63757984980% of the book takes place in a classroom. wtf are you talking about.

>>637562540>education de la America meme>from a book written by an AmericanAs the other user said this is based on the movie by an overrated Dutchman, where they did only portray the Earth as a facist military because he just hated the book. The problem is the Dutchman is retarded and much like with Robocop he made it so cool that the audience didn’t give a fuck about his message.

>>637570562You can’t apply modern ‘right wing’ or modern politics in general to the past. But Heinlein did think Greasers would cause societal collapse so he was a hardass at the time.

>>637556146>Got some good memories of watching starship troopers with my dad when I was a kid.>There's a recent influx of good games based on it.Cool.

So is the game more fun than deeprock? all the comments in the store page is that the game is full of bugs but somehow even those comments have a thumbs up.

>>637584591>So is the game more fun than deeprock?I haven't played it yet but I highly doubt it.

Would the movie be better or worse if Rico was Filipino?


The main thing it feels like the game is lacking is humans getting dismembered. I get the revive mechanic kind of fucks that up but they could probably get around it by making it so certain bugs like the tiger elites and tankers just outright kill and dismember you (and if they implement the flamethrower shit the tankers did in the movie, fucking melt you)

>>637558117>TencentShame, had it on my wishlist for a while but ain't gonna support that shit.>canadiansOh that explains their other faggotry too.

>>637581952Quake 1

>>637584591I think it will be eventually, when it is more polished and has a lot more content. The gameplay is already awesome. But it's unpolished and severely lacking content so yet. And they aren't really that comparable beyond being coop shooters with giant bugs. This is more like if Killing Floor 2 had base building.

>>637584683>filipino joining foreign army to get citizenshiplel

>>637586392>foreign armyisn't Earth a one world government in Starship Troopers?

I have a question for you bookfags. is that whole thing with Mormon extremists a thing in the book too? I always thought that was such an odd and random thing to include.

>>637558117they are an American studio in Canada because tax exemptions and grants from the govt

>>637585258Also bugs should move faster instead of staying still while attacking you also dismemberment for bugs too since it's a major plot,since they can still fight and be effective 70% without a leg

>>637586781No, that's something the movie invented. I think they were trying to imply that humans caused the war by encroaching on bug space, but even that seems flimsy because what justifies dropping an asteroid on a planet killing millions just because some colonists unknowingly settled on your turf?

>>637586245>This is more like if Killing Floor 2 had base building.Eh, I'd compare it more to L4D. Killing Floor's gameplay simply boils down to killing all the specimens in each wave whereas here it's more about completing objectives. Also they never stop spawning and in the ARC game mode if you just sit around jacking off and killing bugs instead of completing the side objectives and collecting gas for the refinery you're eventually going to get absolutely fucked since the infestation meter steadily climbs in it. The last ARC match I played was a fucking nightmare because nobody bothered to hunt high valued targets or complete side objectives and just dicked around until the infestation meter capped out. We still completed the objective but only three people who had mostly been dicking around outside the base made it to extraction while everyone else was buried under a fucking tidal wave of bugs

>>637572475Lying fuck being a postman counts ffs

This game has zero depth, variety, or quality/care. The people shilling this early access shit have shit taste and you'll get bored of it in 2 hours unless people doing whacky roleplay over voice chat is all you need for entertainment.Jingle those shiny keys.

>>637575402>reboot/retconWait are we talking about the same thing? The one I'm thinking of is the Japanese anime based purely on the book and that came out almost a decade before the movie

>>637589102To be fair, I'd imagine being a postman in the Starship Troopers universe could count as a dangerous job if you're doing interplanetary deliveries. You're traveling through the cold vacuum of space in a ship where just about anything that could go wrong could get you killed

>>637556146Does this game have single player or a single player horde mode?

>>637556146>Early Access it's going to be abandoned as soon as this little hype they're getting dies down.

>>637575548>Zoomer X hit registrationI hate this shit>Iron SightsMovie inaccurate

>>637589445just play until it leaves early access and then refund

>>637582950Hitmarkers are a fucking plague. Why animate responsive reactions to fire when they can just flop over and have a big X?

>>637589152Them keys sure did jangle good because I had lots of fun

>>637589624I ain't spending a dime on something incomplete. no thanks.

>>637589382I meant a terrestrial postman. There is a big part of the book that explains the philosophy of the setting and applying for service is your right, but you only get the one chance and they'll do their best to get you to quit. The example was if a blind cripple wanted to serve they'd have him count the hairs on a catapillar or something. Additionally the recruiter in the movie wasn't wearing his normal replacement limbs on purpose and was placed there to scare people from joining MI.

>>637589152The game only has to keep you hooked for 2 hours till refund time is over, once the yelling memes into the mic ends which will be soon you are left with the shitty squad devs that have not kept there promises and made that game worse with every patch also squad is unoptimized like this game is

>>637566450This is one of the rare cases where the book and the movie are both great, in spite of the director of the movie being a complete faggot to the book.

>>637593685im gonna be honest, the fact that everyone is playing while RPing and yelling out movie lines sounds like the most fun and soulful thing about. I might buy it later tonight and check it out.

The carbine really needs some balance tweaks. Right now it's just the Morita except it does less damage and runs out of bullets quicker. The least they could do is give it a larger magazine than the Morita or make it so you move faster with it

>>637598992It's not? It's just another one of Heinlein's political speculations in sci-fi. He does that a lot. Makes perfect sense in book's context

How does it play? Does it feel like PVE squad or have they managed to eliminate that weird janky Arma feeling?

>>637598992>endangerNever implied. The book speaks only of service.

>>637556146what happens when the playerbase dies and theres no custom/private servers

>>637603979There's only been a handful(out of the hundreds of thousands) of early access games that the developer actually does a good job.

It’s good but needs more weapons and enemy variety. There’s no fire beetles, plasma bugs, or hoppers.

Does this really need to exist when we already have Earth Defense Force for our military-based giant bug extermination needs?

>>637604434Yes. In EDF, humans are every bit as bullshit overpowered as the aliens are. In Starship Troopers, you are dead if you are alone.
