Single-Player RPGs / Your favourite Dragon Quest game
« Last post by Gregosa on Today at 02:48:52 PM »
Well here's a long-running classic role-playing series I'm sure a lot of us have played. I'm interested in knowing the community's top picks for this beloved series.

I was a latecomer to the series starting with IX for the DS back in 2010. I was instantly hooked finding myself carefully investing in skillpoints, crafting lots of great gear in the alchemy pot, questing and having a good time with the class system. Other games would soon follow.

The next entry I played would also happen to be my top pick, Dragon Quest VIIII Journey of the Cursed King. In terms of presentation I really liked the cel-shaded graphics for a PS2 game and the orchestral soundtrack( if we're talking international version) was such a joy to listen to. As for gameplay I really enjoyed most of the dungeons(i.e. dragon graveyard), boss fights, unleashing high tension during tough fights,concentration on a small cast of characters, recruiting monsters and the fact just like in other entries you're curiosity to explore pays off big time. Similairly to IX, I liked crafting powerful gear such as the mid-game demon spear or reaching just the right amount of skillpoints in a character notably mp reductions for hero. While I don't think it has the best story in the series it was nice and simple to follow. Lastly, I do hope to check out the 3ds edition one day to check out the extra stuff added.

I recently played Dragon Quest 11 s and it did pose a serious contender for the top spot. Peps and forginging felt like proper evolutions of tension and alchemy pot. The cast was likable and balanced. Very overwhelming in terms of content and it awesome to visit past locations in DQ games.  Hits most of the right notes in crafting a classic style rpg.

So far I've played some form of 3-9 and 11. I do hope to check out some of the spinoffs one day especially the monsters series as I really liked recruiting monsters in 5 and 8.

Haven't posted in a while. Time to share what I've been playing this long weekend.

Played through Pokemon Sun recently. Picked Popplio as my starter this run. Had a blast  revisiting the region of Alola.

Back at it in Super Mario Maker 2. Aiming for the clear 500 courses achievement.

Death
A new death plugin that works delightfully well PraiseBeUntoMX

Single-Player RPGs / Re: Langrisser 1 and 2 remakes for PS4 and Switch

I looked today too because a friend somehow mixed these up with Trails in Cold Steel 3. Hopefully we'll get a firm date soon. I decided today that I'm done with Langrisser mobile, but I would still jump at the chance to play the full versions of Langrisser 1 and 2. I'm a bit disappointed since I've stopped playing the Langrisser 3 demake in the mobile game approximately halfway through, but I don't want to spend the money or go to the effort of grinding to make more progress. Maybe if the Langrisser 1 and 2 remake does well they'll do a Langrisser 3 remake, but I obviously won't hold my breath. So far though I'd say it is the best in the series.

Evangelion is one of the most disturbing anime I have ever seen, but its ending was boring, so I want the ending of Rebuild of Evangelion to be disturbing so that it will be thrilling to watch.

Here is an example of concept art from the Weta Workshop for the proposed live action Evangelion movie series, what do you think?:

General Discussions / A Proposed Disturbing Ending for Rebuild of Evangelion
« Last post by Jiang Jin on October 29, 2019, 05:07:04 AM »
This is a script for a proposed disturbing ending that I wrote for Rebuild of Evangelion. In the script Gendo secretly builds a supercomputer called "Golgotha" that he uses to download control algorithms into the hive mind that emerges during the instrumentality process in order to control the hive mind and become all-powerful.

Below is the script:

As the Instrumentality is taking place, spies for Wille, upload information into its network. Misato reads the information on her monitor in the Wunder's bridge and immediately makes an IP call to Shinji.

"Shinji, I have shocking news! It turns out your father deliberately married Yui Ayanami because she had the DNA that enabled her to assimilate with the Eva and act as the master control for the Eva during its use as the Instrumentality Conduit!" Misato calls out to Shinji through the WIFI system in the Wunder's bridge.

"He also had you as a son through Yui, and Rei as the clone of Yui because he needed extra master controls for the Instrumentality Conduit!" Misato adds.

"And... unbeknownst to the rest of the NERV staff, Cmdr. Ikari secretly had the Golgotha supercomputer constructed to control the Instrumentality process!" Ritsuko concludes the conversation as strong turbulence generated by the Instrumentality Process shakes the Wunder violently.

"Shinji! It's me! Your mother Yui! I've been trapped in this Eva for years and all of what they are saying is true! Your father has been lying to us all!" Yui appears to Shinji and nervously confirms the truth.

"Mother... So his cold and distant behavior was just an act so that we wouldn't suspect what he was planning... Oh for fuck's sake!!!! We've all been deceived! Fuck!!!!" Shinji shouts hysterically upon learning of the shocking revelations.

"Damn! He was supposed to share the power with us! We've all been conned by Gendo's scheme!" Chairman of SEELE Keel Lorenz comments in absolute shock, and, while seated, slams his fist on a table as he bursts into LCL and then turns into a light yellow stream of energy that collects into a large yellow orb.

"No!!!!" Yui shouts in a panicked breakdown as she also bursts into LCL.

"Fuck!!!!" Shinji shouts in terror as he and everybody else bursts into LCL and then merges with the orb that comprises the hive mind.

Professor Fuyutsuki bugs the conversation between Shinji, Misato, Ritsuko, and Yui using his smartphone and upon hearing the disturbing news, rushes to find the room containing the Golgotha supercomputer.

"I am going to download these control algorithms from the Golgotha supercomputer into the hive mind during the assimilation process." Gendo says to the panicked Professor Fuyutsuki upon seeing him barge into the room.

"Why, why are you doing this!? Our organization is supposed to be for human survival!!!!" Professor Fuyutsuki asks nervously.

"Because... it will place me in control of the emerging Hive Mind... and make me God." Gendo says before he shoots Professor Fuyutsuki in the head, killing him instantly.

After all the streams of light yellow energy containing particles that comprise the bodies, brains, and thus consciousness of the people of Earth, Adam, Lilith, and the White and Black Moons are all absorbed into the orb, it rises into the air, and Gendo, who also bursts into LCL and merges with the orb announces: "I... Am Almighty."

Suddenly glowing versions of all the NERV staff including the Eva pilots emerge from the ground, all saying the same phrase repeatedly: "We will assimilate... We will assimilate... We will assimilate..."

Then the Nerv staff teleport into the Wunder and the Eva pilots teleport into their Evangelions before flying out of the Earth in multiple directions, seeking new worlds to assimilate as part of Gendo's quest for universal domination.
