@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 08:55 PM) lol, perhaps
@  kirant : (13 November 2017 - 07:19 PM) I assume nostalgia hits as soon as we get old enough to "fall out" of things.
@  Rujio : (13 November 2017 - 03:57 PM) aren't we supposed to be too young for nostalgia or something?
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) yet it feels bad since somewhere in my heart I miss all that
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) and even if i am i dont find myself talking about video games much like the old days. esp. not serious conversations on forums
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) :( idk man i'm hardly even into FE anymore
@  xcrash1998 : (12 November 2017 - 09:50 PM) hi
@  Rujio : (12 November 2017 - 05:46 PM) I mean I'm actually around pretty frequently. But we never do anything.
@  Idiot : (12 November 2017 - 04:13 PM) Not since the fire nation attacked...
@  Valke : (12 November 2017 - 10:07 AM) hi hello anyone here
@  Idiot : (11 November 2017 - 07:51 AM) Blegh, even
@  Idiot : (10 November 2017 - 05:11 PM) same
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2017 - 04:54 AM) meh
@  Fire Blazer : (07 November 2017 - 04:52 AM) yeah, seems fine to me
@  kirant : (04 November 2017 - 07:51 PM) To update the Crunchyroll thing: according to their Twitter page, they've fixed their website.
@  Mercurius : (04 November 2017 - 04:43 PM) if for whatever reason anyone else here hasn't been informed yet, Crunchyroll is currently dangerous to visit due to having been hacked.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 November 2017 - 11:41 PM) and maybe if I have extra budget I can hire Kirant to act as the creative producer on a new AW-like game
@  Fire Blazer : (03 November 2017 - 11:40 PM) anyway, seems we're in agreement with the IS thing, lol. FE is what it is now, we gotta live with that and/or move on I guess, haha. this is why I plan to make my own FE-like game one day
@  Fire Blazer : (03 November 2017 - 11:39 PM) oh, good thing I asked. usually when I hear "mobile" I think it's smartphones and such since that's typically what people are referring to.
@  Idiot : (02 November 2017 - 07:06 PM) Aw man you just triggered nostalgia super hardcore with that lunch comment.

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.
