A friend of mine started raving to me about how big a fan of immersive sims he is and how Bioshock is his favorite. I called him a retard because Bioshock has never been, and will never be, and immersive sim. It is a spectacle shooter with very low interactivity.

Which one of us is right? Is Bioshock an immersive sim or not?

Aside from fighting anywhere 2-5 groups of enemies on every new map, yeah pretty much, although was more sneaking around than running past. Because I spedread the tutorial boxes because I can't even with walls of text, combat wasn't clicking with me, so I was too much of a pussy to fight most enemies. Like we're talking Dean Takahashi levels of pants-on-head retarded here, i'm actually kind of embarrassed of how bad my first failed playthru went. I was literally mashing same two attack buttons over and over, not even engaging with the class actions or anything. It was really boring movie-game bullshit up until I kept getting my ass kicked and decided to call it quits. Second runthru tho: MASSIVE improvement over the first, the way I was meant to be playing it finally got thru my thick skull.

4 had bullshit difficulty because it required knowledge from the first three games ON TOP of being ridiculous.
I don't think many games can compete simply because the design philosophy of making sequels build on the previous parts (including requiring transfer of save data) hasn't caught on and most series are made with brand new players in mind.

Their games have a solid foundation. All the classes, spells, and abilities you could ever want are there, but they just fail to DO anything with it. It's like the dev team doesn't have the talent to do anything remotely complex like A.I or a crime and punishment system. Or even provide decent writing and dialogue.

I just want an RPG with the roleplaying potential of CRPGs but none of its combat and build autism. Is that too much to ask? The resources they used for DnD's convoluted combat can be allocated to the roleplaying stuff.

Are there any RPGs, other than Jade Empire, that cover a character's martial arts journey?
I know there are very many games where a martial artist is in the game, but I can't think of any examples where the development of the martial artist themselves is either a key part of the plot or married to the main plot itself.

I'm liking Defiler. It's easy to build around because there are lots of creature races that specialize in debuffs or stat reduction. Unholy Night can kill the whole enemy team at once with the right builds.
Ultimate is very flexible for experimenting with classes though, you don't really need to try to figure out what you want to be beforehand since you can just find out firsthand when you unlock the ability to switch specializations.
It's kind of meta but I would recommend starting as Blood Mage or Monk because their starting creature is harder to get, and then be very careful about what you fuse them with.
>>
>>2769549
I feel like at some point during development they must have hired a new concept artist that actually knew what they were doing because it's a night and day difference between the old designs and the new stuff that was made from Tucma onwards.
all the old stuff can basically be summed up as "ball with anime eyes on it"
but the new stuff? you could draw any of them in the sugimori style shit it out on /vp/ pretending to be a fake leak and people would buy it.
I wish they would go back and unfuck the older stuff but I don't see that realistically happening.

I obviously like it less than KH1, because it is way more action and less rpg. Way more of Sora's power comes from your player skill in KH2, which makes the rpg mechanics mostly meaningless. With Sora's increased speed, damage output and maneuverability the game also needs to throw way more heartless at you in normal battle rooms, and it powercreeps the bosses up to an insane degree with 15+ health bars and very fast movesets. It is analogous to the Dark Souls 1->3 evolution, the game became more polished and faster, but lost soul for it. Also I mourn the loss of platforming, which is only in KH1 really, although there was at least an attempt to bring it back for DDD and KH3.

Overall my ranking of the KHs I played would be KH1>KH2>KH3>Dream Drop Distance>Chain of Memories>Re:Coded. I liked all of them well enough to complete them however.

Sidenote: I played KH before FF VII and VIII, and I was super disappointed Yuffie and Leon are in different games. The two have way better romantic chemistry than "Squall" has with every girl from his own game.
