@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

I know a lot of people are probably planning to play both the main 2 routes and possibly even the 3rd one if they can, but that being said, you're probably going to choose one route first... so now that the game is only like, 48 hours away (or a bit more if you're going physical), I must ask: which route do you intend to play first?

 

Honestly, I... haven't decided, but the Hoshido route is the only one I haven't beaten, so... I guess I'll go for that, then play the Nohr route, then play the 3rd route. I doubt I'll replay any of the routes so then I'll just pick some of the DLC to play if I still have the patience and money and call it quits. XP

I'm honestly not sure yet... I haven't put much thought into which route I'm going to play first, but I do plan on playing them all. Eventually. I'd rather upgrade my 3DS first.

i'm playing conquest first since i dabbled with the japanese version of hoshido(first 7 chapters or so iirc). i'm still excited for this despite all the problems i'm going to have with it, and plan to eventually play all 3 routes, but i probably won't be touching too much of the extra dlc. didn't with awakening so i shouldn't think fates will be any different. unless there's some big map packs or something like that.

After realizing that there wouldn't be Japanese voices and the localization fucks up a lot of stuff, I won't really consider getting the other two routes. Just Hoshido cuz AZN PRIDE here. Already pre-ordered it and everything. I'll just watch an LP of the other two or something.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

fair and fair to the both of you, haha

 

lol@getting Hoshido because of "AZN PRIDE" XD. Conquest is solid gameplay-wise but if you don't care for that then yeah, not a ton of reason to get the other two routes.

I'm going with Birthright first. Mostly because Amazon suggested that one to me first, but also because I want to try out the new eastern-inspired classes. Plus, based on my limited knowledge of the game, it seems like Hoshido is the "good guy" side, and I like to do that first and then the "bad guy" side. I'm going to go with Birthright -> Conquest -> Revelation.

ahaha, solid. Hoshido is definitely the lighter side, haha. And I almost feel like the game devs wanted the route of Birthright -> Conquest -> Revelation for whatever reason, though maybe that's just me, idk.

Hoshido.

 

Because I was like "I'll end up getting all three in the end, anyway. The real question is: WHICH BOXART DO I LIKE BEST?"

 

Also because I heard Nohr is hard.

 

Was anyone else thrown for a loop by the prologue? I was very confused for a very long moment, lol. I was like I THOUGHT I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE STARTING OFF ELSEWHERE?!

 

That being said, when is Invisible Kingdom/Revelation being released?

Makes sense. Birthright is the warmup, Conquest is the hard mode, and then Revelation is the path some of us kind of wanted to take the first time.

 

At least, from what I've gathered. I actually...don't know anything beyond what the trailers have shown me.

Conquest, because a friend is playing Birthright and we're super late Euros and there's no special edition on Amazon and the Nintendo one is £114 (an utter waste).

special edition execution is garbage

 

typical Nintendo bs amirite lol, why not just make people happy by letting them get what they want esp. when it involves spending more money

 

smh

 

moving on tho, Conquest is da best so that's a good decision

 

let me know what you think/feel free to discuss, not much srs discussion going on though then again idk, somehow it's kinda harder with the new games

Yeah, it's a bit of a joke. Still a little pissed with the dual nature of the games honestly - but it seems to be the way the video game economy is going - breaking whole games up into parts that they can nickel and dime you for.

 

Glad to hear it, I'll get round to playing both eventually though.

 

And yeah, will do :)

yup, one way or another. doesn't seem like anyone is really exempt, lol. it's not like games are necessarily bad, either, but now we don't just have expansion packs, we've got microtransactions, costume DLC, quest DLC, grinding DLC, extra story DLC, multiple versions (though that's basically always been a thing with Pokemon, but they basically acknowledge that there's no reason to get both, and that having multiple versions is more to promote trading, but has now turned into a tradition that from a technical standpoint, isn't necessary), etc.

 

 

Conquest is the only version of the game worth playing tbh.

 

normally I'd say something about how you're like, so rude with your comments or something but I just don't have it in me right now, heck I kind of agree with you... lol
