/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? when the shoe was on the other foot? are you talking about communism?
haha banning religion is dumb because a lot of relatable people still need magic to find any meaning in their lives. Doesn't mean it's true, as a matter of fact competing religions is self evidence of a falsehood.
Did your dad tell you these things and you just accept them without thought? You have 0 reading comprehension and even less capability of critical thinking.

He is right in a sense, Fallout 3's plot in many ways is a recyclying of 1 and 2's main plots. The difference is in sidequests.

The plot of FO3 is a literal copy in pacing and tone to the original Fallout, and the world design and encounters are similar to both the original games, the only thing it doesn't really try to recreate from FO2 is the larger party and vehicle system.

Good thing that you keep all the keys and keycards when you export your character
Not that anon, it's currently broken even if you have psi and are near a merchant. It just won't work. You can only use merchant refresh right now.
I'm interested in this game and I'm aware that it's very popular for the amount of builds you can make. Is there a respec option? Because if there are so many ways to play the game, I want to experiment a bit. If not, what build do you guys suggest I try out to get the most out of the game's different mechanics and gameplay features?

Did you get Red's and Miranda's endings in BS1? Also consider playing all BS1 companion endings for extra pain
Nope. I had no idea who Miranda was and i didn't get red because i was a knight and paying for whores/rape is no-no so i never really payed too much attentioon to her until the end where badabing badaboom
i hate wonderland
Those 2 are arguably the most important BS1 heroines. If I were you I'd do their endings before moving further into BS2. For Miranda you need 5 sin and go to the underground poison area - forgot the name
Also, I hate to ask, but did you do the hotel scenes?
Once you start a new game, remember that there are only two ways of fucking yourself out of the extra endings. To ensure you will still be able to try to get that ending, first make sure you start your run by fighting the headhunting beast and leave through that area then, when you reach the start where a monster chases you from the mirror, make sure you enter that area at 0 sen after that, just make sure you don't hurt Leaf before getting her ring.

Once you do these two things, you cannot lock yourself out of the the true end (pre DLC3) and it'll be simply a matter of exploring as much as you can of the world.

Why aren't other RPGs as sandbox, fun, and exploitable as Morrowind (or even Skyrim)?

MMOs do that and it's the primary reason why nobody calls them MMORPGs anymore.
The only narrative this could work with is some kind of meta narrative where the game is a simulation, something like the matrix or whatever. In a conventional fantasy setting like LOTR or something this kind of design makes no sense and ruins immersion.
Its the turboautist again...
Why are you so obsessed with Morrowind?
I don't get it.
He's right.

To elaborate a bit, take the alchemy situation:
>You stumble upon an ancient tower that the locals all tell you is cursed
>You go in and discover alchemical golem defense mechanisms
>Very hard fight but you get to the top
>discover an ancient legendary alchemist sitting vegetative in a throne with all kinds of potion IVs going into his body
>His body is immune to all your attacks and regenerates instantly from anything
>You destroy the IVs and that lets you destroy him
>Take his vault key from his body and read his secret journal
>It's a narrative about using the alchemy exploit to get increasingly more powerful, last entry is him discovering an infinitely strong INT potion and planning to use it
>Turns out the alchemist got stuck in a solipsistic coma simulating a whole universe in his mind with him as god

I've never played a Final Fantasy game, which one should I play first? So far I have:
FFX duology
FFXIII trilogy

Are they all ATB? Which one is the most enjoyable gameplay wise? I'm not new to JRPGs at all, just never played FF for some reason, so some challenge and/or depth would be appreciated.

The best entry point into the series is to start near the beginning. 4 is usually a great, inoffensive title to play with and really highlights the staples of the series that you'll see reoccurring. I'd skip the polarizing ones and work your way forward, then double back and hit the ones you skipped to see if they speak to you personally.

So, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12. Then double back and try 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 15. As for 11 and 14, they're MMOs and should be held separate.
12 is much more divisive than 5
How the fuck is 5 polarizing?
I agree with this except don't skip 5.
Don't listen to him >>2300279 don't skip 5. It's one of the best in terms of character's progression choices, it really feels like an rpg should be.

Final Fantasy suffers from having so much lore spread out through many games that have tangencial links (through the dimensional rift mostly).

How would you feel if the first FFVI games were meshed into one world ?

Either by revealing the world maps we see in each game are just part of the whole world

Or going the FFXIV route, each game is a reflection of FFI that in the end will probably rejoin the first world.

Would you be ok with that ?
Actually it will probably be the twist of Stranger of Paradise or else it wouldn't have the title Final Fantasy Origin

Nevermind. Found a new one
FF has no universal lore, the lore of a game connecting the games (like Record Keeper or WoF or so) will always be limited to that game alone.
The charm of FF is seeing the same elements (crystals, chocobos, airships, black/white mages, dragoons, Bahamuth, Shiva, Ifrit etc, etc...) arranged in new and interesting patterns.
Those games were made for players with imagination to fill in the gaps. Not for zoomers with brains fried from porn and smartphones.
pre or post leviathan i want to know if i should be concerned
yeah but FF is actually fun to play unlike TES

If they were smart they would expand their team so one can work on Pathfinder and the other can work on whatever else they want.

You're still not making any sense, retard.

Putin is about to nuke your asshole as soon as you send more troops into Ukraine.
Quick spoiler(ish) question, i am at the Ivory Labyrinth in act 3 and a horde of enhanced enemies surrounded my party on a bridge. My character, an aeon, tries to use his mythic power but it proves inadequate and then the party is saved by some angels. My question is if this is supposed to happen or if i somehow fucked up my mythic path. I did burden of the aeon right and was able to time travel to do the Staunton thing so i don`t think that`s it. I`ve also played it as lawtist as i possibly could.

Not enough waifu demons, so I'm subtracting one point from my score
Final score: 9/10
It's quite fun. The story is great - it really handles well creating the atmosphere of things going to shit, and the music and everything else feeds into that. Even the more annoying characters are still a lot of fun, because you get to see them hit with insane amounts of stress and either deal with or break down because of it.
The gameplay will sorta depend on how familiar you are with smt and similar games - newer people will do okay for a while and then get shit on once they reach day 3, and if you're already able to figure out super effective strategies the difficulty is lacking outside of a couple of specific areas - but it certainly has enough to keep you invested no matter who you are. Some of the time-sensitive options are annoying as part of a first run (I think DS 2 is much more annoying about this though), but the game definitely is made to be played several times to hit all of the routes.
All the girls have fucking porno bodies, if you care about that either way

I'm largely a Persona fan first, and a MegaTen fan second. The Devil Survivors are the MegaTen games I have the most interest in playing, but Overclocked is essentially impossible to play legally in Australia, and last time I checked, it didn't even emulate well. Much sad.

Crushed a lot of bugs today, we're all gonna make it bros.
Look up these guys:
-Casper gaming mz (cgmz)
-bluecoralgames (fomar0153)
-Galv's plugins
-Moghunter plugins
These provide a lot of stuff be it visual or mechanicswise.
How come, theres not a mv equivalent? Also Mz is worth it now that most stuff is doable.
>only 5
Pathetic. I once had a comment event assigning a variable to a murder mystery campaign where each of the 32 characters had 2 separate routed endings leading to a possibility of 64 different endings and for some reason I cant recall I had to have two variables where each digit was a different meaning to say which character ending it was.
Well I lost the files in Hurrican Ida, but I'll never forget the two days it took to actually make just that one common event.

He never talks about banning armalite rifles either, to be fair
Theology is far more sophisticated than this as well, and your derision is ill applicable in this thread, amusingly enough.
Evolution is not an end goal, it's a motive mechanism.
Unrestricted evolution leads to loss of form, entropic degeneration of form meaning interplay, and if specific conditions go, ultimately, eventual extinction.
If your understanding of mere "animals" is so mechanical, your future is rather bleak, indeed.
>Fun is a construction, and if it's done poorly there's no fun, ignorant manchild.

Get to the point already if you even had one.
As for nanites, it depends on the way they're used.
If I recall IW Helios ending right, it talks about boundaries of self, that already should tell you much.

Monster Rancher 1&2 DX comes out soon.

What are you raising first?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
It's not pokemon. The formula came from their race horse training game before Monster Rancher. It's a fantasy training simulator more than an RPG.
Is Monster Rancher like Digimon World Championship? You train up a little guy and then watch him do his best?
In terms of the actual gameplay it's not particularly similar, but in the broad concept of training a monster to fight in and win tournaments, yeah it's pretty close.
Sell me on the games because I love the Monster Farm anime. I know how the original worked with turning CDs into monsters that you train and then fight tournaments. You can merge monsters and they die after some time.

What I don't know:
Is there an end or a time limit?
What are the rewards for winning tournaments?
Is there a way to extend a monster's life or do you just replace them all the time?
Can you get the same monsters from CDs/songlist multiple times?
Can I play this more casually or will I run into the wall because I'm not training efficiently?

I liked Digimon World when I was a kid but training and digimon dying sucked. I tried a PSP Digimon World and they died even faster. I hope Monster Rancher does that better and there's no poop.
Only the training part. Battles are different.
