So I'm completely done playing Drakengard. I'm going to watch this walkthrough instead. Unless anyone suggests a better one.

If someone is talking - it's never worth it.

I hated Rogue too.
aThey're completely silent, but they do give info in the description.

Can someone give me a general idea of the proper way to watch these videos? I know
Code:
Ending A is at the end of Chapter 8, but how do I view Endings B-E?

Never mind: figured it out. Just saw Ending B.  Whoever wrote this is beyond insane.

Code:
Edit 2: Just saw Ending C. What do I do to see Endings D and E? Do I go to Chapter 5 Alternate Verse 8? I don't think the guy recruited Seere yet though. I'm confused.

Edit: Never mind, I'm figuring this out just seconds after my edits. Question though: when do I go to see the character specific chapters? Should I do it before or after Ending D/E?

Edit 9,042:
Code:
Suddenly Seere is on my team. Where did he come from? Is there something I missed between Chapter 5 Alternate Verse 8 and Chapter 10 Verse 2?

Code:
So the non-alternate Verses in Chapter 10 just link back to Chapter 7? Ok, fair enough, but where did Seere come from?

FINAL EDIT: I figured it all out now! I don't need my questions answered now.

I was going to suggest this LP here but it looks like you found something else instead. Too bad though, you got off the crazy train just after it left the station, but it's for the best considering that the game really isn't worth playing through to begin with.

Code:
Also the way the game works is that you play through to verse 8 and get the A ending with the 50 story tall, chain smoking, 8 year old girl as the final boss and the dragon gets made into the new seal to replace the MC's dead sister and set the stage for the even worse Drakengard 2.


Code:
After that new options open up which you can skip to thanks to the game's chapter/verse system the first set lead you to ending B involves recruiting the twin brother of the A ending's final boss to join your merry entourage of mass murders, pedophiles, and child cannibals, and letting the dipshit bard try to bring the MC's dead sister back which transforms her in the process to some demonic abomination which you fight as the final boss and the ending involves all the SeeDs sprouting a hoard of clones of the final boss.

Code:
Ending C involves letting the dragons in on the fun and having to fight a colossal dick dragon as the penultimate boss and your own dragon as the final boss.

Code:
Ending D involves ripping the game a new one with your newly upgraded dragon and seeing what happens when you piss off the evil chain smoking 8 year old's gods by preemptively killing their avatar who also happen to be a legion of giant cannibalistic space babies with electric wings and their giant bald naked pregnant space mother and the final battle involves holding out long enough to let the twin brother freeze time while the MC and his dragon are in mid getting cannibalized.

Code:
Ending E involves not getting cannibalized by the space babies and instead blasting their momma so hard that they wind up punching their way through to Tokyo circa 2003 and the final battle involves playing a rhythm game requiring machine like reflexes to beat and the ending involves the giant naked watcher turning into dust while the MC and his dragon take a missile to the back of the head from a couple of passing by military jets; all of which sets up the events of NieR.

Quote from: laserSquad
White knighting Oblivion

Except that none of that addresses the biggest problem with Elder Scrolls IV which is the fact that in about 30 days Elder Scrolls V is going to be dropping from the sky(rim) which will make ESIV look like some outdated relic made five years ago.

As you yourself just mentioned there's absolutely no reason to look back on the outdated ES games and in no time at all that'll include ESIV.

I'm up to here with Drakengard. Is it worth it to keep playing and see the story or should I just find a video walkthrough?

You probably should've done that to begin with. But with that said though "In for a penny, in for a pound", or if you've made it this far it's probably worth continuing til the end (unless you're trying to score the fifth end and are tangling with a whole new genre of gameplay in which case for the love of god look it up on Youtube; it's not worth it to play through that).

Warning: Watching all the ending may lead to suicidal thought

I'm only in Chapter 5. Verse... 6 I think? Just after the

Code:
nuclear bomb attacks with the blimp.

When you get that Mace weapon. I just... don't want to grind it and... GRR.

So watch a walkthrough or suck it up and grind it?

You don't need to grind any weapons (unless you want to read the weapon stories) since the ending requirements only require that you have all the weapons not to have them all at level 4. Plus you'll know the best weapon in the game when you see it and it's the only weapon worth grinding at that point.

Also you're right at the point where plot decides its had enough of these rails and derails into crazytown.

Doing a perfect playthrough of Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.

Easy enough, but it is also super-duper easy to miss the smallest things.  The Carnelia Books being the worst offender that have tiny time frames to get them (but will give you the best weapon for either Estelle of Joshua [one per playthrough D: ).

I like playing this game between school readings, it's very low key, nothing strenuous, and it's a lot of reading, so it keeps me in "READING MODE". =/

Don't forget the hidden quests like visiting all the towers and such.

On the bright side at least this game will probably actually be playable compared to real Barbie games, Disney Popstar of the Month games, or those Petz games which are shovelware no matter how you slice it. Kinda like how Super Princess Peach was both hilariously misogynistic and a solid platformer.
3937  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What are your favorite innovations in RPGs? on: October 21, 2011, 02:09:51 PM
The Alchemy and Skill Point systems from DQVIII (now I have a reason to hoard outdated equipment beyond being OCD and having characters that are specialized to specific roles but also possess a bit of flexibility).

Weapon Skill/Magic Levels from Secret of Mana (having benefits to favoring a particular weapon or magic spell is pretty nice).

Upgradable Weapons from Secret of Mana and Suikoden (rather than having to shuffle around a bunch of different weapons that become outdated as soon as you so much as look at another town/dungeon treasure chest having one or a few that you carry around for the entire game is pretty damn convenient).

Materia from FFVII (I'll admit that despite it favoring mass generalization of your party, the ability to set up some killer combos by linking together different materia has its advantages though FFVII's example could easily be improved).

Skill Proficiencies and Training ala Suikoden III (adds in both a specialization factor and an option to generalize characters as you see fit).

Costume Damage or barring that Limb Damage from either Teh Turd Birthday or Vagrant Story respectfully (granted the first example is kinda awful and both are more suited to ARPGs but generally speaking since HP and MP management is getting shoved out the door these days having to manage either your armor/equipment or your character's limbs could add some of the some of the risk of pushing on too far back into RPGs without forcing you to limit the use of your magical boomsticks).

Multi Generations or Time Skips best seen in DQV or Ocarina of Time respectfully (because one of the biggest failings I usually see in a JRPG is the general lack of the flow of time due to leaving it up to the current stage of the immediate crisis as the only indicator which limits the amount of time characters grow and the world is seen, but having multiple periods of time allows players to see the long term affects of previous adventures and the changes in older characters as well as providing extra flexibility with the fates of said older characters).

And a Home Base like in Suikoden games or Airships in FF games (where you have that one place to return to that you can augment or trick out and you can manage or mingle with other PCs and make use of standard services in a convenient fashion).

(there`s a small matter of this probably not getting localized but these days I`m sort of immune to this)

And now you know why I didn't make a thread on this when I first spotted news of this. Sega's just going to pretend that this series doesn't exist outside of Japan; then if anybody asks, they'll blame us for not wanting the game. Just look at how many Shining games were released since the last one made it outside of Japan.

Besides given how creepy/misogynistic the series has become lately I really couldn't care less about new releases.

Ah, Konami. They wish their JRPGs were like everybody elses....*sigh*

At least the Zapper isn't out of place given that it's the Super Mario/Duck Hunt cart that's out on the table.

Then again where's the Zapper plugged into, or if it is, where's the 2nd controller plugged into?
3941  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: need help deciding on: October 19, 2011, 12:36:04 PM
LOL Ys is mostly running around and slashing things with minimal cutscenes and story. You had to concentrate?

When it involves not dying horribly to bosses or platforming for hidden stuffs.

But then again I also tend to avoid playing on Easy Modo, so there's that as well.

And it's own mobile game too.

Except that Ys is kinda terrible to play while on the go since it requires a lot of concentration and skill and road trips tend to make concentrating rather difficult. Go grab some TitS instead.

I'm downloading the cinematic mod for half life 2, I can't believe how good it looks, check out this comparison:





Unbelievable.

There's also a ton of new versions of Alix:



Modding is definitely one of the best things about PC gaming, there's some unbelievable stuff out there, you can rediscover your games over and over.

All I see is nipples :D

And a mustache. D:

It nothing else it's impossible not to appreciate some of the meta-jokes that have been born from it.

For example: If you thought the falling wiener was over the top funny before...

I didn't knw about this video. Brilliant! Wonder what else people can come up with with all the crazy scenes this anime has. And honestly I don't think one needs to know much about japanese culture to got the most of this show.

Maybe this
