Victor my friend how are you? we dont talk too much lately (i guess we both have busy lives now), you playing any games as of late?.
I ended up buying the statue in the end and all i have to say is
I also completely stopped playing The Witcher 3 since i wasnt having fun at all (despite how impressive it is) and it was taking me FOREVER to get anything done in the game and that plus knowing how overly long the game is (plus the expansions) meant i was looking at perhaps 6+ months of just playing this game... (that i wasnt even enjoying...)
Funny how i can find a game like Disgaea more fun than The Witcher 3 despite the former being less technically and graphically impressive not to mention the story and lore of the witcher is also more developed...
But i just wasnt having fun in the moment to moment gameplay in TW3 so... i had to stop.
For the first time in my life im seriously considering buying a certain type of product that i used to think was a waste of money.
Im talking about statues and this is the especific one i want to buy https://alter-web.jp/products/230/
Its made by Alter, probably the highest quality company when it comes to this sort of stuff, (or at least thats what ive seen and i have seen a lot).
Now here is the thing... its rather expensive (as you would imagine), and the reason for that (aside from the obvious quality) is that its a limited product they only make them by preorder and they only sell a couple hundred or so, (which i imagine is the reason why i have seen people re selling them on amazon from 1 thousand up to 3 thousand dollars).
So how expensive? well... 257 dollars so basically a PS4 which yeah its just crazy... but i guess ive gone completely nuts because im seriously considering buying it, (god i want it so much!!).
Anyway i have up to the 26 of september to preorder or thats it, so i guess i will have to see how crazy i am in the next 3 weeks or so.
Also how you doing? what games are you playing?
Nier Auotmata is the most amazing game of all time.
Im thinking about playing Disgaea 2 on PC since the complete edition has DLC that the "Dark Hero Days" doesnt have.
But at the same time i feel more at home wiht a DS4, and yeah i get it that there are ways to get the DS4 to work with PC but doing so is a headache (i know from experience...).
I beated Disgaea 5 a couple of days ago and there is sooo much i want to say about it that im thinking of just sendind it through a PM because this format on the wall is just too small and there is a "couple" of pictures i want to use.
And that was just about the base game of Disgaea 5, because you see i waited to beat the game before i used all the DLC characters from the previous games and now that i have unlocked almost all of them, i have SOO much more to say!, about characters i didnt knew (mostly from Disgaea 3) and about how the Overload system has affected dramatically some of these characters.
So i just wanna warn you that one of this days you are gonna get a BIG BOOK as a PM with a lot of Disgaea in it (LOL).
And before i finish this i want to say that i was looking forward to finally playing with Rozalin (who is a character i have always liked), since i love her character design, the fact that she is a vampire and what little i saw of her personality in the DLC chapter was pretty charming as well.
Not to mention she is (gameplay wise) one of the best characters in the game, her Overload combined with her unique evilities makes her one of the highest damage dealers in the game, not to mention she has more unique skills than the vast majority of characters in the game, (even more than the Disgaea 5 characters except for Killia who has the same amount).
BUT just after i unlocked her i saw her in the Pocket Netherworld and i decided to talk to her and read all her dialogues... and she straight ups says something about her overload that goes somewhat like this:
"About my Overload... no, its better if we dont talk about it"
Which obviously peaked my interest and THANKFULLY i was looking at some reviews of the DLC characters and the guy doing the review of Rozalin says something along the lines of
"I hope you have played Disgaea 2 because BIG SPOILERS..."
and thats when i looked away and stopped reading... well holy fuck now i have to go and play Disgae 2 before enjoying the post game of Disgae 5.
God i love Disgaea... i was really depressed yesterday until i decided to start D5 and the music, characters, humore and just the overall tone lift me up from that depressed mood.
However i realized something and i must make a decision so i come here for your advice, you see the thing is i have no problem really in playing the games out of order (i already played 4 before the previous 3), however i have all the DLC of 5 which includes literally all the protagonist and a lot of the important characters of previous entries, and i really wanna use them (after all i paid for all of it), but i also realize that part of the fun in a Disgaea game (at least for me) is unlocking all the abilities and special attacks of your characters.
So essentially if i use all of those characters (which i very much WANT to use) i will kill that part of the fun from the previous games so... the question is this:
Should i go back and play all the preivous games? or should i just say FUCK IT and play D5 and get my fun now?.
You see going back makes sense but the turth is that by the time i get to D5 again im gonna be very tired and burned out on the series, after all we are talking about beating 3 (or 4) big ass JRPGs (SRPGs to be precise), so... i dont know what to do.
I was reminded today of why i dont go into comment sections of news articles...
There was this one conversation on Gematsu where someone replied to a user, asking him why his name was a spoiler to a recently released game and my instant reaction was looking at the name, and yes you already know what game it was... however!, i was not spoiled because the moment i read the first word (which was a name) i immidiately looked away, i did managed to see the first letter of the next word (not the whole word) but even if i can figure out what word it is there was still about 4 or 5 more words in that name so im not really spoiled at all.
There is this thing thats happening to me with GOW that has happened with perhaps a couple of other games, and i wanna know if maybe you have gone through something similar or if its just me being crazy as always.
You see as any regular person i cant just play games all day, i have other things to do (responsabilities obviously) and there is only so much time i can give a game per day, and thats about 4 to 5 hours which is fine (no complaints there) but... with this overly long story focused games (like Persona 5 or GOW), it comes to a point (when im nearing the ending) that i have NO IDEA how much of the game is left.
And the problem with such a thing is that i dont want to get to a point when im literally just at the end of the game, (say another hour to beat it) and i really cant keep playing, meaning that i would have to STOP right at the climax of the game, and that SUCKS.
And thats the problem with this games, you never know how much is left and sometimes what you think is the final boss turns out to be just another boss, and the real final boss is way past that, and then it happens again and that boss also isnt the final boss (like Persona 5).
And i really hate that because if you stop there it destroys the momentum and emotion the game has build up, and going back to it the next day (to play the last 40 minutes or so) is not the same and it doesnt feel as rewarding or fulfilling.
Im gonna use an embarrasing analogy but its perfect for this...
It would be like having amazing sex only to stop right at the climax and postponing the orgasm for the next day, and then 20 hours later having the fastest, shortest and most unfulfilling orgasm of your entire life...
I now have GOW on my shelf and will play it this night, cant believe i went from "will buy it later" to "first game i actually get day 1 and play day 1".
This thing will hunt you in your nightmares.
I beated MHW yesterday, could have done it way earlier but i wasnt motivated to play, (i kind of got burned out of it), its a pretty great but regardless of how fun the game can be the farming does get to you after a while.
The problem is i dont know what to do now... in all honesty i want to play GOW but i cant (i got some things i have to pay for first), and the other games i wanna play are incredible time sinks, like for example the .Hack//G.U trilogy which as it sounds is composed by 3 huge games not to mention a 4th new one that was added with the remaster, (so we are looking at at least 300+ hours of gameplay between all the games), and all the other games i wanna play are also RPGs or JRPGs that will take me between 80 - 100+ hours to beat or in other words at least a month and a half to complete...
I wish i had DB FighterZ to kill off time while i wait for GOW in May.
I wrote a book lol (sorry).
Forgot to tell you that i beated Nioh two weeks ago, but i do have a complaint... i hated the final boss... i thought ending the game with a one on one with Kelley was a perfect way to end it, but god did i hated Yamata no Orochi it just wasnt fun to fight.
But lets get back to what was great, its interesting that the first time i saw the opening movie i was able to recognize that the last guy in the trailer was Oda Nobunaga, i guess ive seen the character in so many animes by now that i kind of recognize what he looks like.
Anyway Nobunaga being close to the final boss was awesome, (im a fan of the guy, i mean even when portrayed as a girl he is badass https://i.imgur.com/HCLlSFG.jpg) however i thought it was wierd that the spirit animal of the guy was a peacock... i mean come on the man is constantly called the demon lord in almost every adaptation ive seen, so a Dragon or something like it would have been more fitting.
Combat was great and i loved parrying guys and even bosses, i just wish some human bosses werent constantly using living weapons because... well trying to parry that is just foolish, BTW The toad and Lady No were some of my favorite boss fights.
I guess the one department were the game didnt blew me away was the music but then again i just came here after P5 and Automata (2 games with some of the best soundtracks ever) so that doesnt help.
And finally i loved Ginchiyo (what a waifu) and when i unlocked the option to buy transformations into other characters i immidiately looked if i could get her, and... she is the most expensive character, seems like they knew she was gonna be popular.
Also because i have the complete edition i still got a lot of game to play, and im gonna tell you this... the expansions are more like a complete second game, the story is a continuation of the game instead of a side story or extra chapters, they have as much trophies as the full game (39) and combined they may be as long as the standard game, so if you really loved Nioh you need to buy them.
But here is the thing... i really wanna play Monster Hunter while its hot, while its popular, while its still the talk of the internet and while it has the hype behind it, and it already took me a month or so to beat Nioh so im not sure if i wanna go another month with the DLCs, plus i did beat the game just like you did so... what do you think should i play MH:W and then go back to the DLCs or should i do the DLCs first?.
Saw you played Cyber Sleuth and Berseria, so tell me about those first impressions.
Been playing Nioh and loving it, my only complaint is that due to the type of game it is the pacing for the story is weird, since you get get one cutscene of story per each main mission, (though sometimes you dont) but you also get about 3 sub missions after each main mission, then you have this moments when i may go one full day without touching the story (focusing on completing all sub missions), only to later advance the story too much too fast, so what im doing now is all sub missions and one main mission every day, that way the pacing doesnt feel weird.
BTW the fact that this has a proper story with a lot of different characters and cutscenes, sets it apart from the souls series a LOT and really makes it feel much more original, which is something i love.
Also its really sad that it took me this long to play the game, not only because its awesome but also because MH World just came out, and ive been wanting to play a proper MH on console since the very first one on the PS2 (which i could never find), in other words ive been waiting for that game for over 15 years... and not only is it out but apparently its amazing, the best game in the series, and EVERYONE is playing it, talking about it, and gushing about it as well...
it sucks because im really loving Nioh and i dont wanna stop (and i wont stop), and now i also REALLY wanna play MH World...
I find it ridiculous that you got downvoted to hell for stating the fact that you liked Nioh more in the P5 thread, but i guess i shouldn't be surprised since that's the fate of everyone there who doesn't agree that P5 was the be all end all of RPGs this year.
I have spent 200+ hours and counting in P5 so i definitely love the game, but i cant say much about the fans...
Today im starting Persona 5, I bought it over Nioh because its easier to get spoiled on P5 (and i already know somethings i wish i didn't), meanwhile Nioh on the other hand i know NOTHING about it other than the MC is called William and he is not Japanese.
Also im gonna wait for the definitive edition of Nioh that comes with all the DLC, so it will be worth the wait.
How far are you on Nier Automata btw?
estebxx hasn't added any games yet!
