/vrpg/ is a place to discuss all types of role-playing video games, including single-player, multi-player, and massively multi-player, turn-based and real-time action, western-style and JRPG.

Does this mean RPGs are banned on other video game boards? No! /vrpg/ is just a separate board specifically focused on RPGs where discussions about your favorite games can thrive.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules and remember to use the spoiler function where appropriate!

Please note that, like /v/, "Generals"—long-term, one-after-the-other, recurring threads about a specific game are not permitted on /vrpg/. Such threads belong on >>>/vg/.

What do I have to know before making a shotgun build?

>>2863168
The next time you level up click the button that shows you the list of every feat in the game. Take the time to read over all of them.
Pick out about 8 of them that sound strong (especially those that either give you free actions, more AP, reduce AP cost, or grant you an area of effect attack), and then make a note of what stats and skills are required for them. You'll be able to gain a stat point every few levels, but if you're far off with a bunch of them it'll be worth it to reset. By doing this you'll create any build that's effective, no matter what weapon type you're focusing on.
This is the best advice I could give to someone just starting out because there is no respec.

As for psi, I would recommend picking only one discipline that sounds interesting to you and then invest a little into it. No matter what kind of build you choose you're almost always going to come across instances where a certain psi power is very beneficial or efficient. It's always going to be worth the -10% max HP loss.

Conceptually, I love the idea of a Cowboy build. But from gameplay logic, it seems like Grunt or laser commander make way more sense.

Please explain to me how I can make cowboy work.

Is there a smg worth a damn in this game? I ideally want something like the TMP in RE4 which is a pistol-machinegun which can do accurate potshots while being able to spray.

The game-mechanics strongly favors rifle and shotgun rounds because of their armor penetration variety. Getting through the game with just pistol ammo would make certain armored robots a pain.

Which means you go for pitsols for crits, or rifles for dps and armor penetration. Shotguns for the ammo for all variety of situations. If you look at the perks, the game shits out perks boosting pitsols, shotguns, and rifles but nothing for smg. SMG are in some awful gameplay mechanics noman's land.
>>
>>2862748
The Survivalist's rifle is the weapon you're looking for. Only has a spread of 0.08 compared to the Sniper Rifle's is 0.02. Deals slightly more damage than a sniper per shot. It doesn't fire especially quickly, only 4 shots a second so no brrrt for you if that's important. It also only has a crit multiplier of 1 so not especially good for a crit build.

But it's a hard hitting, fast firing, accurate weapon. Plus it's boosted by Grunt.

For the early game consider it's common variant, the Service Rifle. Can take AP ammo so it can hold it's own for a while.
>>
>>2862759
That's the thing, the smg doesn't specialize in anything and doesn't synergize well with perks like other weapons. And lord expect to dump 1000 rounds into something if your target has armor.

Everything they do the assault carbine, all american, marksman rifle, all just do better with similar 3-4 strength requirements. Shotguns are better close range. Pistols can do high dps and high crit as well. Crit weapons and shotguns have their own perks.

The assault carbine bizzarely uses mini-gun ammo (likely since they wanted something else to use it). But that results in effect a low strength low power mini-gun with none of the draw backs. 5mm has default -10 armor peircing and the others have even better.
>>
>>2862785
Have you considered that if you want a weapon that's juuust right for you you should make it yourself? Change the ammo type, add an AP round to you favorite ammo, improve the accuracy, increase zoom, change crit chance and crit damage. Can make them mods for the weapon you like.

Though I will warn you you may find working with the GECK to be pretty frustrating. Still, if you really want something the game doesn't provide you're gonna have to download someone else's mod or make your own.

Just finished pic related.
Enjoyed it.
But i wish it had a higher budget, higher 3D model animation quality, more 2D animated cutscenes etc.
I get it started off as a handheld title but that's besides the point.
Basically, it made me crave for a JRPG experience that doesn't feel like it had to cut too many corners, something more fancy.
Got some recommendations? Preferably not Final Fantasy.

I considered the latter, but I decided to win using the former method as to give the last enemy an appropriate sendoff.
It took a mix of Heal Guard, Party MDF+, Battle-cheer and succubus heal, but all were standing at the end.

DnD based magic systems are retarded and have zero rhyme and reason in their progression. In Kingmaker and WOTR, your caster character can somehow learn the level 7 firestorm spell even if they don't know the level 3 fireball spell. How can a magician cast a higher level spell when they don't even know a much more basic spell? This can also be seen in different schools of magic. Once you reach the level requirement, you can choose advanced illusion spells like Weird even if the only spells you have are evocation spells. It doesn't make any sense. It gets even stupider when you characters can learn spells like Greater Dispel Magic despite not learning the much more basic Dispel Magic.

If you're on top of the train and go right beyond the edge of the map, you'll arrive at Shiki's house. You can get yelled at by Shiki and you can get a loredump from Chris. And most importantly, you can fight the most powerful enemy on the main six routes. Dark Enoki and Shimeji appear on all seven routes, but they do not drop their special item on the seventh for some reason. It's not anything important and you can easily steal it from them without winning their fight.

Still stuck in the White Room as far as we know.
G happened, but when GG backrolled it, its events were undone which means that Alice Liddell's soul should still be there, and Lewis' came back to Grimm. After all, if Lewis' soul wasn't back inside Grimm, the whole VN section from his point of view wouldn't have happened probably.

You shall not install mods beyond bugfixes / patches on your first playtroughs. Most of us know this.

This is for a good reason. Most people are retarded, especially gamers, and they will recommend noobs shit game altering mods you should probably never have, let alone on the first playtrough. Most mods are poorly written garbage etc etc...

But there's an exception to every rule. Is there a mod for some RPG that you'd recommend by default even to noobs? For me its BG1 NPC project. Playing trough the game with it right now and the extra banter that it adds to some of my characters is just great. (Especially Edwin) It could be shit with some others, I dunno, havent tested the whole thing. Writing so far has been good.

Jsawyer for New Vegas. There are a few mods for Fallout 4 base building I'd recommend, too, like the deconstruct everything mod to clean up base building areas, longer power lines (because they're way too short) and quieter generators (because they're way too loud).
I generally play my games with as few game altering mods as possible. Stuff that adds new content or quests or different types of gameplay I don't ever do, mostly because modders suck at voice acting and writing, and I'm a snob.

Cool setting, and I like ED-E's backstory. Ulysses however proves that Avellone is a fucking hack. I retroactively think Durance is shit now.
And let me just say this /vrpg/, I despise Sawyer. I hate his retarded balance philosophy. He's a downright dogshit designer from a gameplay perspective. BUT. He gave us Graham, and Avellone gave us Ulysses.
I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
Why is this character so shit? What the fuck was Chris thinking and why the fuck did the higher ups at Obsidian sign off on this shit?

The only direct involvement he had was in writing Nok-Nok, which was a horribly retarded, blatant Reddit-bait comic relief character.
