What the hell does this mean? Do you mean wizards who shoot fireballs and shit? Because that's not what Tolkien wizards do, and is what wizards do in basically everything that isn't written by Tolkien. And also, Gandalf dual wielded his staff and a big fucking sword, so even the little bit of information you did give is contradictory.
That has nothing to do with your retarded idea of what pre-Tolkein wizard means.
Point is that bdo wizards aren't some old version of wizards that's been overrun by something else, it's the most generic hack and slash wizard. And it's actually pretty similar to Gandalf considering he would go full nuke if necessary and as Velvet mentioned Gandalf did the whole sword/staff thing regularly.
>Romance routes in vidya
Only mass effect 1 was fun because I like cluelessly let Kaiden get way too far on his route with me before friendzoning him, going for the blue girl, and then asking his pathetic lovesick ass oh honey could you stay with that nuke, do it for meeee *pout.*
All the other bioware romance is just garbo waifu sim.>>389501>Has lots of big opinions on degeneracy>Suggests theft
Sneaky chink doing what comes naturally or genuine criminal scum? You be the judge!
>>389518>All the other bioware romance is just garbo waifu sim.
You take that back, Garrus is a perfect husbando
Just wait until he's ready to calibrate you~
1. I talk to him because I respect him
2.I have yet to discuss the dried up left over shit from ME3
Well I'm enjoying it. ME3 was good aside from the ending. Andromeda is over 600 years after the Shepard Trilogy though. So that ending has no effect on the story.>>389556
Oh no, some glitches stretched throughout the game and questionable mouth animations, how awful.
Horrible animation all around is not a glitch, awful script writing is not a glitch. Its a huge title they've been working on for years and the animation is way worse than the first 2 ME games. Theres no excuse.
Well there actually is, they lost all their good people and >EA, but theres no reason to defend them for releasing a steaming hot turd.
Didn't you excuse Automata's abysmal shitty writing as just being the typical work of Yoko Taro? What matters most is ultimately the gameplay over anything else. I find it hard to believe Mass Effect would fuck up as a TPS. But it being current EA with using a fucked up development cycle I wouldn't doubt there's a lot of gamebreaking glitches and exploits already.
Hell, from what I know a lot of people put ME3 as having the best gameplay out of the trilogy, so despite the backlash over the lazy ending people still enjoyed the actual game.
So do the people apparently>>389567
This isn't typical of old Bioware though, it is typical of new Bioware but nobody likes new Bioware.
I was actually considering getting it until all this came out.
A lot of people also hated the gameplay in ME3, and ME2. I was fine with the game up until the pic of Tali was just a fucking stock image and the endings were kind of a slap in the face. I'd still rather play it than the new one.
Even the SJWs they were pandering to aren't liking the game, they really screwed the pooch. Its funny though so I'm enjoying shitshow.
You can't really go around say expect shit from one guy and not from the other when they're both asking the same starter price. As far merits go they both have some serious, boring ass flaws that hamper the total experience. Andromeda just has it more significantly placed.
I doubt the party that hates the gameplay for 2 and 3 is bigger than the party that enjoyed or was okay with the gameplay of 2-3. A lot of love for the ME3 multiplayer apparently.
>>389576>I was fine with the game up until the pic of Tali was just a fucking stock image
lmao I forgot about this
character design is hard
What are the flaws? Nier/Drakengard has always been pants on head retarded and convoluted as shit. Mass Effect used to be a pretty good series. Stop trying to compare apples to oranges. >lol you like this game and its also a game so you shouldnt make fun of this other game that the entire world is also making fun of
You aren't even playing it why do you care?>>389581
Apparently they took some of the character art for journal entries or whatever they are off deviantart for this one
I'm saying accepting one for being stupid and mocking another one for being stupid comes off as really stupid.
Also it would only count apples to oranges if I were comparing the genres directly. I'm not. I'm talking about elements of both games that came off as really dumb but otherwise don't effect the actual /game/ part of the video game itself.
You said it yourself, Yoko Taro is a hack fraud but he gets a pass because it's an expected quality coming from him.
I haven't really heard the gameplay being mocked yet, so I just see it as /v/ being /v/ all over again.
If that's true, how the FUCK did they screw that one up?
I put money on shit level design of the animation is foretelling.
>>389584>but otherwise don't effect the actual /game/ part of the video game itself.
Its an rpg, the story is the gameplay. When your characters are more or less walking T-poses and pop in and out of existence and the main waifu holds her gun backwards when firing, it kinda fucks with the game.
I haven't played Automata, but I do know there's a mechanic that allows you to unplug your own brain and die instantly, so I can't in good conscience allow anyone to talk shit about the game
I was joking about the T-pose, the other two I have actually seen. Peebee holding her gun backwards in a cutscene was one of the first things that really made people go "wow this is gonna be awful"
>>389599>It's an RPG the story is the gameplay
But Automata is an RPG? idgi familia.
I just have a neutral nature to these sorts of things. I just wanted to point it out it's a little silly that Space-kun would poop on Andromeda after just getting Automata.>>389601>People actually did that on accident
I don't even, how the hell do you not read the description. The best part is removing the HUD entirely and putting GO FAST chips in instead. The overworld felt much tinier once I got to [Prototype] levels of GOTTA GO FAST.>>389597
Can't really take your word for it without assuming you have some sort of bias to try to confirm your own thoughts.
>It's an RPG the story is the gameplay
A hallmark of an RPG that is story driven as a primary building block for how an entire IP functions, is a world that suspends belief to draw you into it's particular setting.
Nier can be wacky and w/e for the story because it's not the selling point at all. Even if Andromeda had basic mediocre TPS gameplay, thats not what's causing the uproar. It's the fact that the silver lining of what made the series good in the first place is destroyed.
Ah, okay, I see. Well I guess I can see that, I guess I just never took RPGs with such appreciation anyway.
I just mess around a lot.
NieR: Automata is the early front-runner for GOTY (if we're not counting Zelda).
You should DEFINITELY play that shit.
