I honestly don't like the gamemaster's voice. Can't put my finger on why. It just feels...underwhelming. Between this and the costume he's very paling in comparison to our original Zero and Zero III.

And again I really don't like how unsubtle they're being with the game direction thus far. We have a character named Q, a section named Q, and the 'escape door' is X. X marks the spot... Except it doesn't because in everything prior (dang it Glass :-P )

Q is what marks the true exits.

So I'm already going to have trouble being invested in the struggle to open it because they couldn't have marked it more unless they took a ginormous crimson water dweller and nailed it above the door.

That aside...holy crap that looks gorgeous. *_* <33

So, just casually thinking through something here, isn't the premise we're given so far implying someone wants to perform another crazy era-spanning super dimensional time-mind jump?

Basing this off the whole 'someone needs to die per password' element.

If I remember right from 999 it's pretty strongly implied that Junpei only really needed one loop through (the false ending route) to complete the events as they occurred. Implying an alternative that, if Junpei had problems transmitting, the deaths he suffered on the other routes simply powered his transmission to a point where the good ending was reached; but optimistically it seemed to be a one and done since he only needed to send data back about 10-ish years or so.

VLR's whole shtick was they needed Radical-6's time dilation effect plus a loooot more protagonist death-cycles to super charge him up to make the events of ZE 3 even happen as they will in the game.

Sooo...we get to ZE3 and not only are we getting cycle loops again, but unlike the incidental/you-can-avoid-death-by-not-being-dicky kills in ZE/ZE2...these are intentional. Intended to be extremely stressful and power-charging if the rules of ZE/ZE2 are to be applied here. As pointed out, there's technically a crap ton of espers here this game. If you needed to chrono-punch Sigma below the belt about...what was it...20+ times, (Unlike Junpei, all the bad ends were REQUIRED to get to the true end for Sigma, instead of just the singular one) to make the jump back several decades; just exactly how far back will this group be able to reach? And why?

I could nitpick at some of the details but really there's nothing worth harping on except for one little thing...


>.<; *facepalms* This character's name is now pretty much 'Deus Ex Machina'. Any other name but Q and I wouldn't be irritated. Couldn't they at least have hid it a little better? XP

ZE2 was a rather...amusing first impression to say the least.

Again from left to right:

-Porcelain Chang'e legend reference.
-Elementary school teacher, here comes the surrogate mothering.
-ROBO-MONK, says your mantras dirtbag.
-FLCL runaway cast member; probably a tech-geek.
-Snooty, retired cattle rancher
-Token Ice-Queen gal popular in that era.
-NASCAR driver-Squall clone.
-Token J-pop idol, expect catch phrases galore.
-Umm....why is Cleopatra here? We're getting another Lotus aren't we?
-Ringmaster, or lion tamer, either way probably a goofball.

Only one of them was really right in the end. XD Sorta.

So from left to right we have:

-Obvious Female Secondary
-The astronaut-jerk
-The too aloof to be friendly guy
-The 'I look normal so I'm probably psycho' guy.
-Weird kid + pointless hidden identity token.
-Our camisolely challenged token 'eye candy' dancer.
-Miss I Probably Die First To Set The Mood bookworm.
-And a reject party member from Darkest Dungeon.

...I want Zero III back darn it. XD

Artist for this series really has one hell of a belly dancer fetish don't they? XP

Because my brain is beyond fritzed and I feel like being an egomaniac.

Just finished penning the last 5 chapters of my manuscript. 25K+ words done in 15 hours on consistent work. 85K+ done over two weeks.

Get on my level you NaWo-Whatev wash ups....goodnighty....zzzzz.

Normally I'd be on board with you here as a point of valid criticism. To be fair, there's no arguing that if you hate repetition then this game isn't going to be fun; full stop.

However; Darkest Dungeon's repetition is one of the few games with legitimate reasoning for it. You can't remove it without ruining the game's lore, themes, and plot as a whole.

Also, stop attacking the pot. XD Unless you have someone who can one-hit burst it; it's almost never worth the time. Hag's design is that of a pure DPS-race.

Gonna resurrect this dinosaur since it's been out for a while. That and it got mentioned on Random Encounter.

Just finally beat it via my Houndmaster boss challenge. I think I felt some of my sanity slip away. So, anyone else been working on this lately? Got any questions/struggles? I've picked this thing apart pretty thoroughly so...I'm probably one of the more proficient Cthulhu pokers out there. XD
55  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on: February 03, 2016, 03:08:24 PM
The general consensus I seem to be finding from random Youtube videos is that although the characters are super cliche it's refreshing to have a Digimon story with older characters, darker themes, and a world where the Digimon aren't the main focus so they integrate into the setting more organically. Also that the battle system seem to be a love letter to Final Fantasy X and the only downside of the Digimon themselves is that you have to play "Who's that Pokemon!?" which picking your digivolutions.

I may have to figure out how to sneak this into the purchase backlog soon. @_@

Watch I have the genre label entirely wrong. That's just what it sounds like to me. XD

57  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on: January 30, 2016, 08:21:52 PM
I adored Digimon World 1 & 2. For some reason 3 and beyond just never clicked with me. I didn't like a single game in the series after until that fan translation of the PSP title came out last year. This one I wasn't really paying attention to other that side awareness. I just looked up a Digivolution chart and I admit...it is slightly tempting...I'm not sure it'll wriggle it's way into the anime budget and justify a purchase...but I am quite curious now.

Since I've been wanting to share this with someone for a while, have you ever tried listening to 'J-Disco' Dincrest? I used to just enjoy J-Pop as my primary music but I stumbled across a few things the other day I can only really describe with that new moniker. It's...insanely catchy.

The more I read about this game's dual-splitting the more confused I get; making this a really stupid thing for them to have done to begin with.

So if I'm reading this right, it's probably more optimal to either NOT buy physical copies or only buy ONE physical copy and get the one you missed digital; making for an easier Chapter 5 transition if you want to see both halves of the story because you don't need to play juggle the SD Cart...is that how it works?

I saw full body art of P9 about a week-ish ago? I laughed. He looks like a gym teacher.
