Rape analysis of the playable characters:
>Cahara
Takes it like a champ. The anal bleeding probably does a number on him but otherwise he's able to laugh it off.
>Enki
Hates it and will start speaking in tongues, will probably cast hurting on the rapist's cock and then torture him with blood magic until he feels satisfied.
>D'arce
Struggles hard but will eventually close her eyes and pretend the rapist is Le'garde. Will then have a massive orgasm and pass out.
>Ragnvaldr
Becomes bloodlusted and will do anything in his power to kill. Impossible to rape unless the rapist is twice his size. Devours the rapist's body after.
>Levi
Will struggle but gives up when he realizes he can't escape. Remains stoic until he cums, and then starts bawling really hard. Would kill the rapist immediately after if he has a gun in his possession.
>Marina
Pretends to not enjoy it by complaining halfheartedly. Really likes being dommed and hopes the rapist takes him as a slave for more sylvian rituals.
>Daan
He's been raped before so he'd probably have the worst reaction. If it's Stitches doing it he might enjoy it though.

A thread for posting about and sharing obscure RPG's you've played and want to discuss or mention on the off chance someone here has played it too, or goes and tries it out. Can be anything from licensed and published games, to fan-made modules for other games, to shareware, to full on indie titles.

Post'em if you got'em.

That sounds pretty unique.

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.

Hacker's Memory feels a lot better to play than the original, more mon variety and less forced dialogue go a long way. I still like Dawn/Dusk a lot, but both are grind heavy games, especially if you want to get specific Digimon or specific abilities when you fuse them together. Not that you need it for the main game and bonus content. At the very least, with enough patience you can max out stats via diligent grinding. I also wish CS/HM had the positional based combat of the DS titles.

He's the classic hero and the perfect MC. As the character controlled by the player we should be invested in the stories of everyone he interacts with, not the MC himself, and that's what makes FF9 so compelling. He's the most well-adjusted and human MC... until he steals the show and finds out he's not human at all.

Final Fantasy is a series that has always lived and died on its music and artstyle. If one of those is not to the player's tastes, it's perfectly cromulent grounds for dropping the game.

Devil May Cry wearing FF's skin is not an RPG.
>>
>>3460791
The bad is only terrible story points that matter only for storygamers. Why did I expect anything else?
The game Is literally a terrible RPG, one in which the only RPG feature are big numbers going up. It even has cinematic Boss fights that are only there to visually impress the braindead player.
Its not a good final fantasy, nor a good RPG. It might be a competent story-centered action game that you play once and never again.

Why developers tend to make their RPGs less complex and simplified when they become older taking out all the edge and what makes them fun?

>>3463460
True. It simply allows players to focus on roleplaying and being introduced to the setting, with this civil war and dragon shit going on. They can learn what skills are and how they play out in practice at their own pace.

I like character creation build planning way too much, but I believe Skyrim's approach is superior design.

There's mods that allow basic character creation stuff, but I never used it because it just doesn't add anything to the game. Maybe it functions as a limit to force some players to stock to their chosen class, but I never had problems with that.
>>
I love making a full custom party in Pillars of Eternity and not using any dump stats. Everyone starts with 10 and then gets two 18s, depending on their class and role. Sometimes, if their race and culture line up (chosen for roleplaying thematically, and not for mechanical numbers, of course), they'll get a 20 in their high stat, otherwise they might get a +2 for a 12 in a tertiary stat.

Come to think of it, I think I enjoy doing this more than playing Pillars of Eternity.

>>3462427
>>3462427
I think it's much more complex than just "why devs like simplifying mechanics"

There's the obvious push by higher ups to appeal to the masses by simplifying the mechanics and reducing the depth. It works btw but at the cost of old school fans slowly shifting away from the franchise which I guess is a good enough trade off for these franchises from a profit perspective.

Then, there is what Tim is talking about here which is different. I don't think he ever advocated for removal of stats or complexity as the image falsley conveys. In this specific instance he talks about streamlining character creation rules and making it more elegant. Instead of adding an arbitrary rule like no 2 stats can be a 10, and the minimum has to be a 3, he seeks to use geometry to convey these rules using geometry so they don't have to be explained or taught to the player. You just "get it" by rotating the shape. Also he never implemented this system and talked about it a lot in a sort of "this is an idea I had, I could never make it work in my games, here it is if any one else can think of a better way to use it".

tl;dr at least in this specific example I think Tim shows how a good developer thinks about these issues over his carreer and seeks to streamline, not the game, but the rules that players must learn. What do you prefer, reading a wall of texts specifying what are the limitation of the stats or have them be conveyed in the design itself. For me, this is not complexity but tediocy.
>>
>>3463503
All skills should be useful, but all builds absolutely should not.
>>
>>3463536
I like that builds in both PoE games could depend pretty highly on gear as well as stat allocation. Glass cannon dual wielding barbarian with super high perception is probably my favorite in both.

Riposte tank rogue in heavy armor is also pretty cool in the first game.

It looks better without the heavy post-processing.
>>
>>3460874
Looks fine at lower resolutions where the overall resolution of individual assets has fewer steps of quality/fidelity/etc between them.
The wider the gap between your worst and best assets becomes, the more dissonant it looks, and the less pleasing it is to the eye.
It's one of the reasons why the shittiest thing about modern fake retro games is using all the pixelized sprites in the world, but having the interface elements be smooth as glass with modern, anti-aliased fonts.
These worlds were never meant to collide like this.

>its AT BEST mediocre, AT BEST!
The main problem with the game is that it doesn't really lend itself well to multiple playthroughs outside of completionism because the mystery of the murder mystery is removed once you've done a full playthrough. It's not really a rewarding thing to solve it once you've already beaten the game since you know who it is and where to go to find out who it is. Sure, there are different builds and different political views you can give Harry but these don't really impact the world, it just determines how Harry looks at and navigates it.

because it was made by a commie and chan users cannot imagine enjoying any media at all made by someone with political beliefs contrary to theirs so they'll make it a point of contention to argue the handful of times the game touches on the topic represent it as nothing but commie propaganda whilst overlooking all the other times it lets you be incredibly racist and sexist if your own volition without real consequence
