Theres no true ending. Souls games are more choose your own adventure. The ending you choose and the order you beat the game in is up to you. Though, obviously, I prefer the ending where you wake up from the hunters dream. The other endings remind me of bad endings from  games like silent hill. Though in this case, they do serve to expand the lore of the game.

One of the things I'm going to point out in my review is that Pillars does a really great job of avoiding that D&D-ism-- your abilities are often 'per encounter' instead of 'per rest (although there are some of those too),' and resting is tied to a finite resource, so there's more of a strategy to when you use abilities-- and because you have greater access, you're doing more with more of your characters. There are also just more abilities per class, so warriors don't just hit things in the face all day, they have knockdown strikes, sweep attacks, etc.

The older games were great, but the combat is definitely better in this.

Actually, thats old D&D-ism. 5th edition provides a lot more per encounter abilities or regain of abilities on short rests. Even wizards can now much more rapidly regain their spells as well as having powerful at-will cantrips they can cast. 5th edition is a big improvement but I digress.

I know I'm hyped for this game, so much so that I've just started replaying DE:HR

To be honest, I stopped playing Inquisition. Not because I disliked anything but that the game was a massive time sink. I could beat Dragon Age origins in the time it takes me to complete every map available before skyhold. And thats like what, 1/4 the game. I swear, I wouldn't play more of this game without a trainer that lets me collect 10+ herbs on each picking. Collecting materials is such a tedious and massive time sink. And the maps are excessively big. I wonder what my ratio of running inbetween quests and actually fighting is. I'm pretty sure just running around wins by a mile.

So I just got off steam Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH

HOW HAVE I NOT NOTICED THIS GAME BEFORE? o.O

I love it, its super cheesy but quite enjoyable. Best of all, you can get it during a steam sale where its well worth the price.

The battles seem to be seamless on the PC, I think the load times are less than on the Vita. They should be.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else was going to collect these games on the PC because now I am. lol

The character is just heavily anime styled. I doubt fans in japan have any issue with her character. Though I must admit I do like Dice version more, nice work.
22  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bloodborne on: April 19, 2015, 11:08:08 PM
Why do people keep calling the umbilical cord ending the true ending? It just an alternative secret ending and its not even a good one.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: April 17, 2015, 01:44:01 AM
I enjoyed Star Ocean 3 so yeah.......I didn't mind at all the "twist" that seem to upset everyone else.

So yeah, I'm ready and hyped for Star Ocean 5.

I'm replaying human revolution right now because of this announcement.
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XV, This is a fantasy based on reality. on: April 09, 2015, 12:34:52 AM
That said, while I think what the characters are wearing is a minor concern, it's more a case of 'what could have been' in a game with otherwise wonderful art design. My general dislike for the costuming in FFXV isn't limited to Cindy's silliness-- I think the main bro group also looks very samey. Compare all of them + Cindy to any of the casts in FFIV through... well, all the non-XV ones. A lot more color and variety! I want more of that!

Personally, I'd rather they go with a more boring wardrobe for the main cast. Thinking back to FFX, where it seemed like the aim of the main characters was to fully represent the entire diversity of stupid clothing existing in Spira, I'll happily take something more realistic.

I'm not the biggest fan of FF VIII, but I think that game is a good example of a FF game with "realistic"/modern-day character designs. I feel VIII's character and clothing designs aren't as samey looking as FF XV, but also not as tacky as FF X's.

The Seeds uniform was sweet and practical looking. And the characters civilans clothes looked the most normal out of all the FF games.

I just got this game today though I didn't do anything except mess around in the totorial trying out the different classes.

I'd suggest reading this class building guide (it will get you up to speed on the dos and don'ts of each class with multiple suggested builds):

I'm probably going to stick with Wizard, I like how they play.

FF8 and FF13 have similar problems but I love them both because I love the characters. Vanille is like Sophie 2.0 in my eyes so of course I love her. Thinking about it, what stands out for me in both games are the music and the characters. What can I say, I liked voiced FF songs. As you can imagine, FF13-2 is my favorite OST of any FF game.

I don't know you, but I'm so glad you see the value of FFXIII-2's OST. It's not my all-time favorite among the series, but it is wildly good, probably the best of the XIII trilogy. Noel's Theme alone (sung by KOKIA) puts it head and shoulders above vocal tracks from other FFs.

FF13-2 is probably my favorite OST of any FF game. I'd say only Crisis Core comes close. Maybe I'm a sucker for j-pop with lyrics (if these songs even count as j-pop. Unsurprisingly, I love the OSTs of Person 3 and Persona 4. So its really not shocking that I love FF13-2 ost as well.

FF13 is super linear but its also one of the hardest FF games which is why I like it. Its also amusing to speed run. I tend to use Lighting Snow and Vanille a lot so I'm well aware my tastes in characters is quite different from most people. I hear Snow and I want to be a hero too! (he gets the cute girl too!)

Orgia dieing is a real shame. Some of my favorite FF13-2 songs are song by Orgia. XIII-2 : SUNLETH WATERSCAPE, XIII-2 OST - New Bodhum (aggressive mix), Historia crux. I swear, most of my time in FF13-2 is from listening to the songs.

Also, Ar Tonelico has some great music as well. I actually like that FF13 series has songs with lyrics that reference the story. The main theme for FF13 and FF13-2 both have versions with lyrics that reference the main characters main motivation. *obvious hint* Both games are about a girl trying to meet their sister again.


Speaking of music, Eyes on me is probably a large part of why I love FF8. lol First it was FF8 and now its the FF13 series. Why do I always love the FF games everyone else hates. lol

Who's Sophie?


LOL, oops. I meant Selphie. Vanille is totally Selphie 2.0. I can easily see Vanille singing trains, trains, trains.

When you set up a Visceral Attack with a gun shot, you can skip the visceral attack and just attack normally. If you do so, the next attack will do double damage. Normally a Visceral Attack will do more damage but certain weapons, like the canon will do ridiculous damage.

Definitely play it. The game lives up to the original Deus Ex. The DLC can be skipped, they are not great but the main game its self is awesome.
