hey Holla Forums so I'm a little short on cash and I want to play something other than bloodborne on my bloodborne box. This looks halfway interesting and I've really only got the money for 1 game, if I were to get it. Has anyone here played it? It came out right around the same time as Nier and i'm not sure if I really saw any discussion around the game. I'm completely blind other than seeing the (what I assume to be) deceptive cutscene gameplay stuff from TGS last year.

I have a bloodborne box and it's an alright game. It's better to get Persona 5 or NieR Automata. If not wait until the complete edition comes out then you get the one dlc that has come out.

Story sucks. Basic gameplay loop is boring as fuck. Characters are all ugly potatoes. Despite the few pretty screenshots they circulate, the game doesn't actually look that great in action and most of the technical glitz is used in cutscenes to make the game look marginally better. Invisible walls everywhere. Lots of little quality of life shit is missing. Pretty much nothing in the entire lush green environment reacts to your presence, so it's all flat ugly grass textures clipping through your ugly potato character and her everything-and-the-kitchen-sink clusterfuck armor.

Don't bother, the only thing it has going for it is fancy graphics with shit art direction and everything else was dumbed down to make room for the visuals.
Invisible walls everywhere
Backstory is some bullshit about evil white males destroying the world despite feminists and minorities trying to save it
AI is fucking retarded and doesn't react to getting shot in the face with flaming arrows
You are completely invisible to enemies in one shade of grass and completely visible in another shade even if it's longer, this is called stealth
Combat is constantly compared to a really shitty 3D Zelda game
Fancy rendering tech is wasted on garish art direction
Protagonist was downgraded from cute redhead in the concept art to ugly manjaw bitch in the actual game

I honestly don't think the graphics look good at all. I don't know how to explain it but everything has this weird grainy look to it like every object has the texture of an old matte countertop. It just looks fucking weird.

I rented it, and played through to the end. The gameplay competent enough, if a bit broken by over-generous stealth modifiers, and the setting and backstory is interesting - if wholly mishandled so as to squander what potential it had. The graphics, at least environmental, aren't bad for the PS4's shitbox specs either. Though it does have a ton of odd lighting bugs and texture issues that Fallout 4 and Halo 2 had where everything is initially displayed in super low muddy resolution - and then pop-in as the game loads.

Everything else is a complete shitshow. Aloy is a massive Mary Sue with literally no flaws, who everybody loves except for a few scripted "assholes" who get brushed off almost immediately - only to come back later to rub it in their faces how wrong they were. Literally, even the king of the largest civilization and supposed descendent of the sun god all but bows down and worships Aloy, and totally falls in love with her. But, that's just history repeating itself, since Aloy is really just a clone of a Mary Sue from the 20th century who is literally a super-genius science Jesus who built the ark that would save humanity and then sacrificed herself to save the project. The villain is a typical white male who's main motivation is "me strong, hate weaklings - me have god on my side, that makes me right". The guy nearly kills his wife in their marital bed because it's too soft and cushy and he hated soft and cushy things.

The tribes are literally just tumblr communities managing hyper-progressive societies in a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Most warchiefs are female, while the men are usually portrayed as being helplessly subordinate or idiots/drunkards/crazy. Except for the enemy faction, which are all male, of course. The tribes make absolutely no sense. You hear all these horror stories about machine attacks, the red raids, wars, sacrifices, slavery… etc… which have devastated the local tribes… and yet, while you see children, you never see any pregnant women. Never. Not even a mention of it. You also hear nothing about women dying in childbirth - which was a really big problem for most of human history, until the advent of modern medicine. You could almost brush that off by assuming - oh, that's a flaw that was corrected by genetic engineering by the ancients. But no… it's specifically stated that the human genome is untouched. And now that they have no modern medicine… with women being warriors, they should be almost extinct by this point. Killed by spears and arrows and children ripping their vaginas to shreds.

It's fucking madness.

Also, the facial animations look like they were farmed out to barely literate 3rd world software sweatshops. They bear little resemblance to what's being said or the emotional context of the scene - and everybody moves and jerks constantly like they've all got intermediate stage Parkinson's disease.

Do not buy this trash. Rent it if you absolutely must, but it's garbage outside baseline minimum decent gameplay mechanics.

Mithra were a race of catpeople who could only be played as females for no particularly good reason aside from "the men stay on their homeland" yet you see Mithra kids, again all female, everywhere. It was only there to act as a foil to the male only rock people.

The offical reasoning for the no manthras were because the ratio of male to female mithras were 1:1000 or some dumb shit like that. Because of that the mithras treated the manthras like a jew treats gold. The manthra's only real duty is to knock up the females while they went out in the world because if the males die out then their race does as well.

Brandon Gray

Yet the kids are allowed to leave? Or did pregnant ones leave during the crystal war? It really doesn't make any sense no matter how you look at it and they should've never bothered to try and explain it.

If I remember, a lot of times the mother will take the daughters along to teach them various trades in other nations so the daughters can be even more useful back home.
It really doesn't make any sense no matter how you look at it and they should've never bothered to try and explain it.
At least they gave it a shot. More than what you can say about most games now. During the Crystal War most of them stayed back home and only sent out a small amount of solders as an olive branch to Altana's forces in exchange for some of them to squat in Windurst.
Though Bastok is superior in every way.
Have some FFXIV bonus cringe.

Zachary Flores

But that's sexist, you asshole.

It's the men who stay home, raise the kids, and make the sandwiches.

Oh, right… never mind. It's fine. Girl Power, and all that shit.

Also, I was being a bit too facetious with my earlier apologies for Mithra. The reason they're fine, IMO, isn't because they're fuckable - it's because nobody gives a shit. The story of FFXI is just there to provide flimsy context for the player. It's like the stories in fighting games. They're not trying to tell a compelling narrative, and they could be completely ignored altogether - but leaving that story out removes any sort of identity and branding, which is important to distinguish yourself from the competition if you want a long-running service or franchise to stand out.

Horizon Zero Dawn takes another route. It's trying to be a "cinematic experience" that tells a compelling narrative and is highly dependent upon the player's emotional investment into the story and characters to keep them motivated to continue playing. The worlds and the people have to be, on some level, reflective of the real world and real people in order to try and elicit this emotional investment. And it falls completely flat in this regard.

Square never tried to push the Mithra as anything other than, "Hey, here's a bunch of sexy catgirls to use as a character".

Males were THAT fucking rare. Though there was a huge part of the questline that had a manthra come to the mainland to stop some shit. I stopped playing by then but I remember a lot of people lost their shit when the introduced him and then got blueballed when they confirmed playable manthras NEVER EVER.

Are you sure about that? I remember that being part of the main quest but I was under the assumption they lifted that rule when Tavnanzia was opened up.

Tavnazia isn't their homeland. It starts with an O and is supposed to be further south.

Angel Johnson

I knew it wasn't their homeland but it was real significant to them and I could have sworn they mentioned that the restriction was lifted thanks to Tavnazia opening up to foreigners. That said,
discussing a decade old MMO's lore

Isaac Cook
Isaac Cook

From what I remember the whole restriction was brought about because of the magicite bow made after the northlands expedition that ended up magnifying the Mithra's chain of envy, turning the queen into a massive powerhungry bitch who forced everyone to stay on the island. Considering you never see a single Mithran native aside from the nameless bounty hunters, who by the way are trying to kill you for helping a Mithran fugitive, it's safe to say they've still got the border on lockdown.

I could have sworn you broke the curse when you fought the arch angels or whatever those guys were. I stopped midway into WotG so anything involving the crystal war is hazy as fuck to me.

You seen any of Alakingjoe's stuff? He makes some of the best these days.
I don't really keep track of who makes what, so can't say. The one you linked isn't bad, but a bit on the generic side - what I love about the one for Exceeder I linked earlier is all the little jokes, like putting Amuro vs. the Amuro Biobrain in the "moshimo futari deaeta koto ga kiseki nara" bit or the shot of Mazinger Zero and the Getter fleet making Emperor of Darkness despair in the "zetsubou no sora kimi ga mita yume" sequence.
