What are some masculine RPG games to play? I mean like feeling like an ultra powerful hero? I'm talking like playing like a badass or even a God himself.

For me, it's Jupiter Hell. Anything similar?

I honestly think railroading part is because game itself is, frankly, unfinished, you can plainly see it in act 3 where, for me, you just...go to Scarlet Chorus camp and kill Voices of Nerat, no maneuvering or anything just go to the camp and kill the dude
I guess they had time for only one ending and decided to go with one which would have most appeal, which in this case is rebelling against morally dubious world conquering overlord

Behold, the last Pathfinder content made by Owlcat, there will be no more Pathfinder after this

Thinking of finally finishing Kingmaker in preparation to play WotR for the first time.
Are the majority of the bugs fixed and are all the DLC worth it? Steam reviews seem to be mixed for them, mostly laying blame on how unbalanced the DLC content is. Will still get the Tiefling DLC regardless cause the new companions look cute.
>>
>>3503746
>Tiefling twins DLC
Cute characters, though their content is weirdly spaced and kingmaker combos for chaacter interactions can be weird in general (you can have a party interjecting constantly or a silent one in the same chapter). And kineticist is a strong class that works differently from he rest.

>Varnhold
The best standalone of Owlcat probably, if you do not like roguelikes.
Levels 5-8 are a good point where a build starts coming together. Varn and Asmodeus Wizard are inteesting enough, you have a couple quests beyond combat and Varnhold dungeon is one of the better designed ones from owlcat (both for battles and puzzles). Not something AMAZING mind you.

>Beneath stolen lands
The roguelike part is nice with a few interesting bosses. Good foe trying parties and achetypes. Implementation is kinda boring and ruins xp progression a bit, but not as badly as the WOTR one did
>>
>>3503753
>Varnhold dungeon is one of the better designed ones from owlcat
That's good to hear, the steam page did highlight a huge dungeon so I was hoping it'd be good. I've always been a fan of larger dungeons in both RPG's and MMO's, really tests your ability to conserve resources and to not get too greedy.
>Implementation is kinda boring and ruins xp progression a bit, but not as badly as the WOTR one did
Are there multiple WOTR DLC I should avoid? Was just going to download them all once the final one drops on the 13th and start my playthrough.

This is a repost.

>Worth it
Sarkorian DLC. Ulbrig is a companion with his own quest and brings a new class with him (plus his unique archetype. Simple, fitting and has funny interjections, honestly.
>Good value
Midnight Isles (standalone). If you enjoy trying archetypes and team compositions, you will enjoy playing runs here. Some of the conditions/traps are also interesting to deal with for a roguelike adventure. The main campaign implementation kinda sucks and fucks over progression to your favor a bit too much.

Lord of nothing is a decent mid level campaign. Nothing amazing (not as good as Varnhold DLC), but good. The boss you get in the main campaign is fun.
>Polarizing
Through the ashes. Mot just low level, but survival adventure where fighting is very disantvantageous. I enjoy the concept and tryong to keep everyoen alive is a decent challenge, but clunky isometric ,movement Owlcat style make it hard.. Adds nothing to the main campain as well and aside for two instances, not really needed to play it's sequel in Lord of Nothing
>Essentially Trash
Inevitable Excess. 'Post' endgame campaign , max rank and level. You get like 90% of your encounters being the same two groups of enemies with immunities Galu Style amd Owlcat puzzle design that is IMO worse than the Enigma (some of the tileset and number crunching there was enjoyed by a few). You do not get to enjoy the story that has barely time to do something interesting with it's concept. At least the two final boss fights are kinda cool and it has another Darkness superboss. But not worth it, IMO. Barely worth a pirate.

I played Black Mage, Astrologian, Ninja and Gun Breaker in that order of preference.
>>
>>3503582
Ninja and monk were the only ones really active enough to keep my attention.
Ninja I really liked how fast you could run the mechanics to pack in more dps but I don't really like edgelord characters.

Dragoon will always be close to my heart and it was up there on mechanics but the rigid rotation and it still kills me that jumping is usually a risky liability instead of an invulnerability move.

Monk had everything, except the dumb rear attack requirements.

Summoner I liked a lot and would consider going back for but I never even saw the actual summons, just liked it as a dot spam class a la wow affliction lock which I also enjoyed.

Machinist was a cool concept and mechanics seemed like a weak take at first but probably improved later...I just think the name is weak.

Most of the healing and tanking classes were too easy for what they did, either totally brain dead and massively overpowered, or like astrologian which pretend to have a high skill ceiling but in fact both floor and ceiling are too low. I was hugely disappointed in astrologian as the only healing class I really felt identified with at all.

This is also why MMORPGs aren't actually RPGs, there is no consequence and no reactivity for any action.
Even the slightest differences in choice like one faction having paladins and the others not having them was too much for whiny players and lazy cut and paste tuning devs.
Even the racial choices were all but removed other than cosmetically, same with the crafting bonuses.

Just a twitch gacha grinder after a while, with bad action mechanics since it's still tab target.

Even with hitting weaknesses, it feels like you'd deal more damage just smacking the enemy with a sword. It simply doesn't seem worth it for how squishy mages are and for how limited MP is.

>They're not contradictory though. You can believe your dogshit analysis of the text is correct BECAUSE you don't care what the author intended when he wrote it.
No you fucking ape, that's not even what Barthes meant with the idea of the death of the author, the death of the author means that as long as the reader finds something that pleases them it's okay, they're entitled to their own interpretation of the text but it doesn't mean their interpretation is "correct" just because Barthes himself didn't care, the death of the author is Barthes' argument to explain how texts have an enormous amount of possible interpretations due to the semiotic nature of language and human interpretation, but that doesn't mean all of these interpretations are equally valid, unless you're a coward like Barthes whose only metric is a psychotic idea of personal pleasure.

In actual semiotic theory, the Intentio Auctoris (What the author wanted to say) and the Intentio Lectoris (What the reader gets from the text) are not the same thing, they're not inherently equally valid when it comes to textual analysis, they're two of the three facets of semiotic analysis together with the Intentio Operis, they absolutely CAN be contradictory and your dogshit analysis of the text is actual dogshit because you're a fucking retard, your opinions aren't inherently correct because they're yours alone, get the fuck out of here with this pseudorelativist midwit nonsense.
