Don't pretend you care about spoilers

the magic god tree that gave earth life is actually a dickhead that kills the dominant species every once in a while for the sake of """evolution"""
one dude in the entirety of the species gets to become an immortal and watch this happen over and over again to other species
Dana, who is an Eternian (the species that came right before Humans) gets chosen and says "no this is stupid"
Adol gets chosen, but says "no fuck you, this is bullshit"
their consciousnesses are connected and the player does some timey wimey bullshit on the island, whatever
there's a second magic tree that conveniently has the ability to fuck up the shitty magic god tree, but only if you kill the Animus of the chosen one from every prior species because there's literally no other way to move the story forward in a JRPG apparently
all of this culminates in fighting the Avatar of the magic god tree that is a four-phase bullet hell boss fight in a magic space arena using a sword Adol nicked from the other magic tree after killing the Animus of all the other chosen ones

Well, okay, that's pretty straightforward. I understand completely. Surely the "true ending" will iron out some of the kinks here, right?

it turns out that killing the magic god tree ended up destroying the fucking world (wow)
Dana offered herself up or something, I don't know, some vague JRPG shit
Dana magically disappears and nobody remembers her except Adol
go to where the magic god tree used to be, it's gone and replaced with a normal looking tree
literal god of the Earth, Maea, shows up and gives the party members back their memories of Dana
she proceeds to explain that literally everything that had just happened was in a dream she was having, and Adol destroying the magic god tree woke her up which blew up the world, so she recreated her dream world as a real world (including Adol) so she could talk to him
"okay but where's Dana"
god opens up an interdimensional hole in the tree and the party just walks through it without any understanding whatsoever
there's a fetus version of the old final boss there, and it proceeds to throw LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE NON-BOSS ENEMY IN THE GAME AT YOU in one of the most tedious battles I've ever seen
transitions into its final phase where it becomes a giant fucking dinosaur looking thing and has a health bar ten times bigger than it needs to be
Adol and crew just kill this thing for no reason other than it's there, so they get spat back up out into the world
Dana is magically back and Maea says (and I'm paraphrasing here) "hey, that fake evolution thing I was doing and killing off of species and Dana thought it was bullshit and you thought it was bullshit and you blew up the world to stop it? Yeah, it's still gonna happen and Dana is gonna be the one to make it happen because she's the god of evolution now. Also get the fuck off my island."

Do people in Japan storyboard their shit at all or do they just make it up as they go?

Nolan Roberts

Not only did I pay for it, I played it.

Yes, for a little over 60 hours I played and enjoyed this game for the combat, dungeons, progression, and overall pretty dang satisfying worldbuilding save for the last chapter and kinda sorta glazed over most of the translation issues because they didn't matter.

But no amount of legitimately properly accurately translating this game's story could have possibly fixed the atrocity that is its nonsense bullshit story. It is a bad story with bad writing and anything beyond the most basic understanding of it is unnecessary.

You're still posting instead of killing yourself. Please fix this before you do something stupid again like pre-order an EA game or buy a season pass.

when they get tired of trying new things and decide they want to remake the same game ten times instead of making new games

so probably soon

NO U FUK

Andrew Rogers

But why? I don't claim to have played coldsteel but just looking at it it looks like a giant shift in style compared to Sky, just as much as Tokyo Xanadu is from Xanadu Next. And having playing TX it fucking sucks.

I meant in the sense that solo adol adventures.
How are the bosses in lacrimosa? Are they just as shit as Celceta's?

user stop using your mother's credit card to purchase loot boxes and cosmetic DLC you irresponsible child. Please hurry up and kill yourself before you damage you're mother's credit rating.

Xavier Wright

Two things:
1. You can play as solo Adol in New Game+ after you fill out your party, OR if you purchase BOTH the PS4 AND Vita versions you can do it from NG. It sucks that it's locked behind such arbitrary bullshit, but the fact that it's there as an option at all is at least indicative of the fact that they haven't completely forgotten the appeal of Ys.

2. The boss fights aren't terribly randomized which means with enough memorization you can flash guard your way through them without any problem, and because of this showing off youtube footage of a boss fight makes things look deceptively easy since the person playing obviously has fought the boss several times and knows their patterns.

It's standard fare with only a handful of extra bosses being straight up damage sponges (including the true ending final boss)

get off your neighbor's wifi you friggin dingo

Please user. Your mother is crying at night because she knows how much of a failure her child has become. She wants you to kill yourself. Release her from this suffering and your horrible anti-consumer supporting addiction.
Consider self-immolation to save on a cremation, it can be the one good thing you have ever done for your mother.

God fucking damnit falcom
I realize it's for depth and whatnot but why the fuck would they have such mechanic if it breaks the game all too easy?

Elex turned out good?

Elex or: Chronicles of bald burly european man #724234

I don't like your thing, so I understand that you don't like my thing. We like different things.

Yeah but he'd literally HAVE to watch all the other humans die, that's kind of part of the deal. I don't think Adol is a sociopath.

I might not a 10bux calling out others for playing weebsheit, but even I think none should pretend this standardized jfantasy diarrhea can be any good. It's always collecting crystals to fight against the gods using a magical weapon, goddamn I feel retarded just reading that summary.

Luke Anderson
Luke Anderson

That's the whole point. On the west rpgs constantly undergo change, but sometimes bring something new to the table, good or bad. Japanese games never go through that change. Its always the same game with different hair color.

Luis Butler

Granted. I'm not denying that.

yeah but you don't play Ys for the story, you play it for the gameplay loop which stays enjoyable until post-game

Kind of defeats the purpose of this thread that complains about the story, don't you think?
Might as well complain about how some of the older games reuse the same gimmick of going to various elemental areas to collect four statues or crowns or seals or six books or whatever just so you can unlock the path to the big boss which is a giant floating demon that you fight on a floating island.

Christopher Williams

Kind of defeats the purpose

I just needed to get it off my chest. This game's story is so awful, not just in how generic it is but in how often it pulls the bait and switch to jerk the player around.

Jace Rogers

For that you have the falcom thread, all they're interested in is MUH CAKES or MUH STORY anyways.
But I guess they'd sperg out over nisa which is pretty justified, what the fuck man

Charles Powell

yep. knowing something is anime is a spolier enough that i neither need or want to care about it. animes are generic, nonsensical, and pointless stories for losers! no wonder most people here have never had a significant other and are largely unaccomplished, mentally ill semihomos

all jrpgs are the same

No, I said that the formula for fantasy jRPGs is juvenile: where in roleplaying games, every type of setting might as well be a different subgenre, Japan actually has more. The staleness of a genre is the same for fantasy jrpgs, and D&D shit which feels all the same: that feeling when a new western rpg comes out, and it's all the same humans vs orcs vs elves.
