@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 - True Ending/Overall Thoughts (Spoiler-Free)

Beat Copen's route and then got the true ending on Gunvolt's side. (Copen felt kinda OP btw and I didn't even use much in the way of upgrades or the like.)

The ending wasn't just bittersweet, it felt kind of empty and... just not very well-done overall.

To start, this game seems very independent of the first still, like they hadn't really considered the sequel when making the first game. I don't remember Mytyl being a thing at all before, for instance. But ok, whatever. Happens.

Then the actual ending didn't really answer various questions, felt kinda nonsensical, was a bit anti-climactic in a sense, and overall it was just... not a great ending. Not an impressive one, not one that was particularly memorable, not a happy/sweet one, it was just kinda disappointing, not terribly so, but I value final bosses and endings because I feel like if a game is well-concluded it makes my memories and overall impression of it that much more positive, and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is a fun game overall (even if it's mostly just action with some weird bosses and stuff), so yeah.

Fun though it was I don't think I'll be too excited for a sequel though (and there's potential for it), not if it's going to be more of this kinda writing. The little chats are sometimes nice and 8-4 added a lot of flair to the dialog so it's not really that (yes it was 8-4, I saw as much at the end, which explains why the text and voices hardly matched up, if at all, lol), it's moreso the overall story that's weak, and I don't see that being fixed. I almost wish they went for something simpler where it's easier to enjoy it: a simple, well-executed story is often better to me than a slightly more complex story that's trying too hard to be cool or whatever

That's all I got for ramblings, glad to be done and not a bad experience, maybe about an 8-8.5 not including the story and about a 7.5 including it, so still solid.
