After spending some time on this board across a few months span, I've come to the realization that most people who post here don't actually like RPGs, let alone videogames.

Most of the content here apart from the shitposts and rehashing of already floating ideas and opinions, is made of very little concern for the actual quality of the games that are talked about aesthetically, but instead how comfy, familiar, similar in ideology and secure-feeling they are.

That just means most people here are seeking comfort in videogames, to not be contradicted in their idea of qualities, values, to escape their shitty lives and not be challenged, let alone appreciate meaningful aesthetics.

To confirm that, I've talked to a few anons, and some of them even admitted playing videogames by default, because they feel worthless and can't dedicate themselves to real hobbies.

Please anons, grow up, get a real life, and seek solace somewhere else, only then will you be able to tell what you really appreciate.
This board would only grow better.

From the start /vrpg/ is just RPG flavored /v/. The only real winner of the addition of vidya boards is /vst/.
Nothing but bait threads and popular threads over and over, which isn't bad in itself, but it really just shows that the anons on this board are basic bitches playing only the popular games: New Vegas, Final Fantasy, Xenoblade, Persona, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, etc.
/crpgg/ over at /vg/ is just the same. You'd think it's a board for general RPGs but it's just /pfkmg/ reskinned. They can't even be bothered to play Geneforge: Mutagen that just released.

Map Designer: Okay, here's the map for the game's first battle area, where the player can get his feet wet. The battle system is going well, I think we should have a simpler music theme here---

Game Director: No. The music for this area will a heartbreaking work of staggering genius.

Music Composer: It'll be difficult....

Map Designer: There's like 100 pieces that he'll have to compose. With respect, do we really want to shoot our wad on the first---

Game Director: So, we won't. This theme will be a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, and each following theme will be better than the last.

Music Composer: Sir.

Music Composer: *Composes a heartbreaking work of staggering genius*

It is. The gameplay isn't a broken mess, retarded references are kept to a minimum, retarded factions like the enclave don't exist, Core City is better and less retarded than Reno, the world isn't a completely brown on green color, there is far more build variety, and I can actually alt-tab underrail without exiting my Fallout application.

I can go on and on about how your mediocre overrated rose-tinted glasses benefitting 'golden age' sacred cow is but I'd rather stop before I roll my eyes at all the bullshit 2 introduced and how people still pretend 1 was deep beyond just the Master

The combat is good but I appreciated the exploration more. You get to a point nothing ever touches you. And the combat becomes boring.
The sweet spot is seeing the build start to take over.

I would prefer always this type of game over say AoD. Even if I like good stories and companion shenanigans.

>I am building a vivi dazzingly display whore with dragon disciple levels

Holy shit, that's literally my exact build. Before starting this game, I read the entirety of the Pathfinder 1e Core Rule Book, then Googled around and read some builds. I think we made the right choice, my friend! Pretty much everyone says this is a good pick.

I'm just starting out. I got to Oleg's and then cleared out that cave with the fangberries (with the help of a couple dozen acid flasks for the swarms). That's it so far. Looking forward to the rest! So far, Challenging difficulty seems about right.

I am seriously not looking forward to kingdom management, though. I want to see the entire game. I hate having time pressures. If I plan things out really carefully, can I max out my kingdom? Like, can I get all the upgrades, do all the quests, research all the curses, etc.? Or do I need to "pick and choose?"

I'm just hoping you'll actually be able to build a character instead of being an ubermensch that is good at all forms of magic. A game like this would benefit from a calender system (like Persona) where there will be trade offs due to time management. If there are speech checks they should be related to skills similar to New Vegas. In the books they were able to pick their classes at some point I believe right? So the classes you commit to for a year affects your character build. In reality this game is probably going to be fairly linear and there will probably be like 10 or 20 spells that anyone can access.
>>
>>1368476
The one thing they need to do to not fuck it up is provide mod support. There's an endless line of people who will mod the game into playability if its utter godawful trash so long as it has mod support.

>>1370128
You pick 2 to 3 electives in year 3 onward. More if you are a special swot like hermione and have time travel to help out. Electives seem to be drop/add freely between years, mostly just drop though. Otherwise you can drop core classes after year 5 and for some if you don't have the grades you're automatically cut after year 5 tests, including electives. It was implied a couple of the core classes are non-optional all the way through, no matter how bad your grades are you just keep going. But there was one student who was accidentally in book 4 when he should have graduated, and JK retconned it into him being held back, so it is possible to retake stuff apparently.

Alternately, if you visit vault 15 first still, you can get a pack of dynamite to blow the radscorpion caves, saving you the trouble of killing them.

Also, does the Rune Fencer/Valkyrie ever get good? I have 2 in my party now and I feel like I'm either using them wrong or are spears just really low damage in general?

Other than FFT, what should I play after Tactics Ogre? I want something more in line with the gameplay of FFT (job system + non retarded archer gang) but with the choices and story like TO.

I'm pretty early on but I really enjoyed the story so far and I didn't expect that type of choice would ever been in a JRPG. Langrisser and stuff any good?

Yeah, I don't understand what the team were thinking with launch of Heavenward in trying to get people to suddenly care for all these losers when you barely know them, both in 1.0 and ARR, before then.

When do we think it's going to break the street date?
