I’m being serious, it’s interesting to have SA in a game in such a horrible way. Bring back anal bleeding too. Have Caligura SA Abella if she loses not a game over, give the anal bleeding status and the player a new hatred over him, Give the neighbours a death screen where they suck your guts through your anus, The naked Gull Bro SA’s you while the other crushes your head with the mauler, make a few enemies that would have a reasonable reason to give anal bleeding too because a-lot of the current ones don’t have a reason to, mainly because of the situation with the moon. Funger only got popular because of Termina and also the lack of SA and genitalia which makes it more accessible but anal bleeding and SA, it was part of the charm in the original.

I liked it a lot but like everybody else said the travel and backtracking kind of kills it. The manga is surprisingly decent.

Who else became a trademaster and hired the ninjas as Thomas?
>>
It's my favorite Suikoden because it has the most fun combat, and because the Rashomon thing is extremely fun for me and I wish other games would also use the concept.
Also, things like Thomas being a chapter purely for interacting with characters is extremely pleasurable to me.

>7-8 went for a shitty wannabe sci fi setting that's impossible to take seriously
Do you read, anon? The line between sci-fi and fantasy used to be pretty blurry in old pulp fiction stories when the genre was taking off in the early to mid 1900s. And a lot of fantasy and sci-fi authors took inspiration from that later.

I think it's a shame now that people's common impression of what fantasy "should" be always comes down to fake vaguely medieval europe with magic and dragons based on pop culture cliches and tropes.
>>
>>3456314
>why did this series disappear?
Failed to remain relevant and most of its main drawing points are either too niche or presented in a more palatable manner by others.
While it was the biggest pioneer of the dungeon crawler experience, it didn't address the issues of the early games (stuff that might have worked on tabletop rpgs but didn't translate as well to pc games) until many competitors had already stolen a big portion of the pie.
The lack of personality by lacking a strong art direction or characters also didn't help so it kinda blended along with its competitors in the casual's eyes.
Rpgs eventually moved onto games focused on plot and reactive settings or faster paced action like Diablo so it went from being the biggest rpg to an acquired taste. It also has a hard time getting a revival since Japanese dungeon crawlers inspired by it started doing the same but with a bigger focus on visuals and music.

I'd still buy a compilation of these games based on the snes ports or with a similar visual flair day 1 but those interested in the series (much less an actual sequel) are the minority
>>
>>3460072
Super famicom wizardry 6 looks great.
7 is pretty good looking as well, not sure what you are going on about.
About themes, there isnt much to say besides that its a really retarded take. Do you want every fantasy game you play to be yet another D&D clone?
8 sucks, I agree, especially when It comes to aesthetics, and its a whole different game compared to previous entries.

>I'd still buy a compilation of these games based on the snes ports or with a similar visual flair day 1 but those interested in the series (much less an actual sequel) are the minority

This is why the new remake for Wizardry 1 is just nuts to me.
>$30 early access
>worse aesthetic and visual style than earlier remakes/ports of Wiz1
>only wizardry 1, no party export/import

Why someone wouldn't just play one of the other ports with a more consistent, tied together visual style and party export/import for the first 3 games for FREE really blows my mind.
>>
>>3460340
Indeed, it feels like something a bedroom developer or small indie team would produce, rather than the remake a classic would get.
The cost is too high for something that looks so basic and it is early access so buying it is a coin toss, who knows when it is going to be a finished, well-polished product it ever.
It being just the first game is what baffles me the most.

What we really need are RPGs bold enough to do wack settings like a food-themed area, a giant toyhouse, an orchestra land and so on. The genre is 30 years behind the curve of platformers.

For anyone that might skip the previous DLC, Echoes of the Fallen, there is only a small reference to it in The Rising Tide.

Basically, besides the elemental Mote tribes that lived around the mother crystals, there was supposedly another tribe that didn't have a mother crystal.

Where did they live? Eh...somewhere....North of Rosaria, I guess? It's dumb. A real ass pull. Wasted character design.

There's this "Sagespire" just north of Rosaria. A fallen ruin. Famiel can tell you all about it because his ancestors built it to forge their own mother crystal. Yet, Clive and Joshua, the heirs to the Duchy but don't know anything about this thing that's literally in eyesight of their backyard.
ANYWAY, this NAMELESS tribe made an artificial mother crystal. It wasn't as good as the real mother crystals, but it works, granted there's enough ambient aether in the atmosphere.

You actually see the sagespire in a tapestry in Mysidia. When the Motes of Water moved in, they were inspired by this "legend" to make their own mothercrystal as well.

I was pretty disappointed with it. The main scenario is like 5 hours - less if you skip the sidequests.

But it's not so much the playtime, but how the time was utilized.

For example, Echoes of the Fallen, was barely over an hour. It's just a simple tower dungeon. But I feel like it injected more lore than The Rising Tide did with only a few cutscenes.

The Rising Tide added a new town with NPCs quests, just like Lostwing, Northreach, or Dalimil. But the NPCs themselves weren't very knowledgeable. The tonberries were mildly interesting, but it wasn't anything new or outstanding for a Final Fantasy game. Yes, tonberries carry knives and hold grudges. But tell me something I don't know! This is Final Fantasy 16. We learned that Chocobos in this world are resistant to aether floods, and we learned in the Echoes DLC why that is.
I feel like the only thing we learned from Rising Tide is who Leviathan's dominant was. But I expected so much more.

I think, what I was really hoping for was a library. FF2's Mysidia had bookshelves with information. Harpocrates also mentioned "the libraries of the north".
But we got nothing. Less than nothing, because what we got ended up contradicting what we already knew.

One NPC was like "Look at the size of that dog" as if they've never seen the likes of Torgal...in the north...where Torgal is from.
*bangs head on keyboard*
>>
>>3458968
Same thing with Ambrosia. White Chocobos are rare, but silver Chocobos were suppose to be a northern breed. There was a whole sidequest where you get a feather for Gav so he can make a charm for the baby. But the npcs in Mysidia made no mention of them.

Speaking of...they probably had designs to make Edda's baby Leviathan at some point. Her village was relatively close to where Drake's Horn was. So it's reasonable she could have had some connection to the Motes of Water.
They pointed out that everyone else had turned akashic because of the aether flood, except for her and the baby.

The masterpiece of this game is that it's tough, but fair. I didn't watch a YouTuber, I formed this opinion myself. It's tough... but also fair.
As we all know difficulty can't be justified in any way outside of further reference to the GAMEplay, why have a GAME if the GAMEplay stripped of all context isn't the point, this is why I play Rabi-Rabi I'm totally not a pedophile or anything, you might as well just have DeviantArt visuals and CrazyBus music and a porn plot, GAMEplay is all that matters, I get down to what MATTERS, not like video games are an aesthetic experience or anything, why do they even bother hiring artists and musicians and writers?
It's not possible that the difficulty is there to make the world's atmosphere more immersive due to the hostility, it's not like video games have the unique potential to interweave gameplay into story and audiovisuals to create a holistic experience that's more than the sum of its parts including the GAMEplay, no the only reason something being TOUGH can be good is if it's also FAIR, I treat all video games like that they're disposable entertainment to play between work sessions or hanging out with my middle-class stoner friends, all games are Puyo Puyo to me. And if I pay any attention to story at all it'll be to unearth "deep lore" that totally isn't just worldbuilding trivia or assets the devs accidentally slapped in, and I will ignore the relatively-complex-for-video-games themes interwoven into the game or deny their existence at all because I can only process things in terms of immediate entertainment value like a true ludophile. IT'S TOUGH, BUT FAIR.
Why play a GAME for any reason other than GAMEplay? When I watch movies I only look at the cinematography, why watch CINEMA for any reason other than CINEMAtography? Stories in films should all be porn plots, it's expected to be there but its purpose is to give an excuse for the cinematography, in other words all movies should be pornos.

I recently reinstalled NWN diamond edition from GOG and I'm running into an issue regarding the sound. After playing for about and hour, the sound started cracking and stuttering, even going off for a second or so. I've tried different sound configurations on the game menu and googled to no avail.
Anyone has had a similar issue? How did you fix it ? What causes it?
For the record, I had the game installed in this very same computar years ago and didn't have that issue. The only thing that's changed is the graphics card, I'm running the same OS (W7).
