shit game btw
We always talk about the spooky and sad moments, but what were the bits you found actually funny?Off the top of my head, i couldn't help but laugh at Gerda suddendly blasting Kai while he was occupied in his infodump
>>2985874This. Just. This.
>>2985871This. I don't even know what this homofag shit is, but it looks gayer than Liberacce's AIDS; looks like some MS paint shit maide by some RPG maker turbonigger trying to sheep retards into giving him patreon bux.Also fuck women I hate them and they're gay. If you like women your gay also.
I can't find the flashback memory where Node says to Mabel that her nature is just as bad for Mary Sue for taking credit for other people's creations, where is it?
>>2985964nvm, found it
>>2985874red's fishman ramble was funny
>>2985874When the fisherman asks how you can carry so much fish. When Gretel runs pukes and runs away after you fuck Hansel. The first game is funnier in general. Just another reason I prefer it, I guess.
>>2985898sho is my favorite dlc 3 character and she can be skipped easily....
>start a new playthrough>struggle to think of a nameSuch is my existence.
>>2986033what does it matter? they all call you grimm anyway, it's probably one of the few things i hate about the games
>>2986035This makes me wonder if BS3 is even gonna have a custom name option, how can the dev make the mc forget its name for a 3rd time when there's no one to manipulate his memories?
>>2986033After finishing BS2 DLC3 I started to call him DaolothBefore that I called him Andersen... and discovered I wasn't that far off.
>>2985898What's even the lore about Sho? IIRC she's like a failed main heroine or something of the like? But do we know anything else about her?
>>2986113She's just another outer god, not sure if it's ever stated which one specificallyHer form being like that seems simply to be because, as stated by Mabel (iirc?), even just assuming an human shape is apparently an incredibly difficult task for the gods, even just suppressing their powers in order to mate (and this is where she fails completely)There's not much else about her, but thanks to her presence we have an example of an outer god utterly failing at properly masquerading as a human girl in order to procreate
>>2986113Sho = ShoggothDon't forget the green lines.>>2986120>even just assuming an human shapeI was going to say it's bullshit because Mabel is just an avatar, but I guess it's not so the case for the Heroines huh?
any new art of my wife? have been under rock
>>2985862I loved Dorothy in BS1, I wonder what she's up to in II? I'M SORRY
I just finished DLC 1 and I have some question. What the fuck was up with the Carpenter/Knight of the Deep Sea? He built Lutwidge Town but it's shitty, then he built the Mushroom Village but everyone got overtaken by mushrooms except for that one woman in that one house, then he fucked off into the ocean and befriended Wolris, then decided that wasn't deep enough so he went down to the very bottom of the ocean and befriended Kuti, then when he sees Grimm decides "fuck this twink" and attacks him. Wolris and Kuti, the only two people that seem to like him, both get along just fine with Grimm, so why can't he? Also, with how ridiculously powerful he is, where the fuck was he for the fight against the Jabberwock or Crawling One? There's no way he's a soulless fairy tale, he's definitely a real person also trapped in this world.
>>2986294Also why is Wolris a commie and why does she randomly say things in Cyrillic? I can't even read it!
>>2986294The Carpenter presumably built thing for a purpose, if you read a bloodstain at the bridge of Lutwidge Town, it kinda implies that he build it as a sort of Tower of Babel. Futhermore, he decided to go undesea to help Wolris, not wanting her to be an actor in a shitty stage (low sen statue) but got PENETRATED by a tentacle and got reborn as Knight of the Deep Sea to serves as Kuti's jailer.Because yes, Kuti is a prisoner, she just doesn't know it.>then he built the Mushroom Village but everyone got overtaken by mushrooms except for that one woman in that one houseThe Mushroom village is one big reference to RHW, the girl is implied to be one of the boss.You also forgot the thing in Low Sen, but I won't spoil the surprise for you.>>2986298Wolris is apparently just russian. Why? I have no idea.
>>2986294>What the fuck was up with the Carpenter/Knight of the Deep Sea?He is from Alice and is friend with the Walrus from the book he got "tasked" by TCO to build wonderland but he didn't built the mushroom village that place is from RHW but he built Prayer Master's house the same one from where Alice ate the cake.>he went down to the very bottom of the ocean and befriended Kutiapparently he got lobotomized by either Kuti or her sister(probably this bitch) so he is basically a slave to her princess>>2986298apparently the japanese word for Walrus was from Russia
Tomorrow at 20/03/2023 There shall be an Alice thread as early as i can!and it shall be accomplished before 23:23 to make Demon beasts Seethe!He who posts Alice shall be my brother.care to share where i can find more pictures of Red's upcoming game? will there be Alice?
>>2986350grab them from toro's cien aliceanon, its free to sub
>>2986361Thanks, I got to head out now, However i wont leave without showing a little something i will be working on tonightI hope to cover myself in a suit of armour someday, but for now i must train for the day where my fate will be challenged.Goodnight and may Alice be with youand never ditch the spoilers
>>2986030She would've been a lot more useful if you could reach her before the goddamn sanitarium.
Where can I find Holmes after I found his letter on Brothel street? I've spent 40 minutes looking for this cunt.
>>2986395Go through the park to Upper Lutwidge
A salute for Sushi Neko Toro, will Toro's late cat appear in the Red Hood game as a tribute?
>>2986400goodnight sweet prince
If you had to pick a different artist for Black Souls, who would it be? I'd go for either Number Toi or Hitomaru. Toi is a no-brainer, he drew a lot of really good horror art, and Hitomaru is goddamn great, and both of them like cute girls in perilous situations.
>>2986405unironically nobody but EMMM but I'm a lost cause
Still hoping best witch comes back in bs3 as a loli with a big ass or something
>>2986398I get to the street lamp next to the scarecrow in the foggy park but have no clue where to go from there. I would upload a screenshot but I'm currently imagebanned.
>>2986405No one. EMMM or NOTHING
>>2986400God I felt so bad for them and the cat.He must have very loved and taken care of.
>>2986495reading the sign should give you the only hint you needbut if you want the answer: follow the stoplights, most consistent way of not getting teleported is staying above them, except for at the end where there's a bloodstain off the path that you're suppose to follow and that will lead to the exit
>>2986495There's one part where you have to make a walk of faith up-right.
What kind of brushes does Toro use in his drawing program?
First time BS2 player. How the fuck do I even begin to fight the God's odd fish? . I'm at level 817 and I think I've cleared everything else.
>>2986617You're meant to run past it. Though it is possible to defeat it, especially after you're done with DLC3. It goes down super fast, you just need to know how to weapon swap in order to get the most damage
>>2986617>God's odd fish?First off, levels are pretty much pointless when determining overall powerlevel in BS2. Secondly, the boss can be cheesed with evasion, %HP damage and a way to survive his lone sure hit move. If you're struggling to beat this boss, that doesn't bode well for your prospects in DLC 3.
>>2986621i ran past it the first time but can't the second. I'm using the machinegun with a crit build but I'll try upgrading some weapons for swapping>>2986623The big black shark in the ship graveyward. I'll try with the evasion and %damage. Is it just like the infinite food?
Is Miranda based off anything or is she OC?
>>2986670Pretty sure that Miranda's based off a DS1 invader. Meryphilia, the ghoul is from a 90's story I believe.
>>2986675what about victoria? she and miranda seems to be the only ones that are not fairy tales
>>2986710Victoria is another character who was entrapped in the white prison (like the real Alice Lidell) to be copied over (BS1 Victoria is such copy)
>>2986710>what about victoria?I just think she's intended to be a literal victorian maid.
>>2986113In a sense, yes, what Mabel says about the gods having an hard time to act as humans seems to be the exact case for herAfaik Shoggoths are just a serving race, so that might be why she ended up like that, even the Ry'leh princesses aren't exactly proper humans (i don't think Zoa would specifically choose to be just an oyster for example)Anyway she talks about her condition herself, and she doesn't seem to mind, i find it kind of cute
>>2985874One little moment was having "Never should have come here" as a potential answer in G end to Mary AnnIt was j just so fucking stupid
>>2985961KekBlack Souls is pure GAIDS
I don't know any nuns named Catherine, what is she supposed to reference?
>>2986965How the fuck is this the first time I read her wiki page
any anons try playing this on their steam decks? should work fine with just running it through proton?
>>2987004After installing the RTP for RPG Maker VX Ace, but probably, yeah.
>>2986892>More shit to add to the reading listAh shit, here we go again...
>>2986892Now I'll add Ferdinand to the list of names to give to Grimm.
Its soon time, The divine battle against the evil demonbeast worshipping occultists and the spreading of Alice's true love.in a few minute i shall make the thread, all shall behold her majesty and let us all love Alice!
Its up and Running!Come, Join me. And together we shall crusade in the eye of saturn as brothers!
Kind of stuck in BS1 desu, not sure what to do or where to go next. Are there any decent guides? I haven't killed any princesses yet but I've been to most locations. Desert area is still too strong for me.
>>2987165Start looking for the princessesone will lead to the other
>>2987077>>2987086Alice.By BS3, you will be IRRELEVANT
>>2987187Shut up you stupid Nigger!
>>2987165How many companions have you met?Have you beaten the boss of the city after the sewers?
Ruina crossover soon
Let's draw something in Toro's style. From dicking about in krita I find the best brushes for emulating his style are Precision Ink and Dry Bristles Eroded for the colors. I find his rough lines are just the beginning method of doing line art of multiple strokes over and over. Since he doesn't really keep in the lines his style is easy enough to emulate.
>>2987350i'm in the process of working something in MsPain ofcourse
>>2986621>>2986623weapon swapping, HP damage, and my own HP boosting did the trick, thanks. BTW, how much can buffs and debuffs stack?
>>2987363Different buffs all stack with other buffs, but only the basic stat+ buffs (from items for example) benefit from multiple castings.
>>2987350 (samefag)I think this turned out pretty nice.
I did it the Alice thread has reached bump limit!I shouldn't overstay my welcome at this fastfood chain so i'm offHere's that something i was working on, Thank you for the great times
>>2987428Is that Myo?
>>2987468No, just one of my OCs.
oh and here's a blank template you can do whatever with
>>2987263But it already has both Dorothy and Ozma in the game.
for getting into the hidden route, the memories of alice are the flame things you can find at 0 sen, right?
>>2987525Yes, you need to find them all
>>2987363>stackingThere's two levels of the basic stat buff/debuff shit, doesn't matter if you use something like Omnicurse/Curse Blossoms to lower enemy Def/MDef, they'll share the same cap just like you would if you use Omnibless/King's Orders/Screws to raise your Attack. Coincidentally, it's most effective to use your items to affect these basic stats, since they don't consume one of your actions that turn.There's not a lot debuff-wise that you can use to directly affect your damage output, Frail is your best bet since according to hints.txt it "Increase damage taken by 50%", but I think outside of Black Wave (very rare skill randomly found in the Chaos Dungeon) you're stuck using a DLC 3 ring (Corpse-Eater's Ring) if you really want to fish for it, and honestly it's not particularly necessary with enough optimization elsewhere. Otherwise you have Frostbite if you're a magic user (-20% MDef according to hints.txt) and/or want to spam Ice shit, but magic is generally worse than phys in this game. Likewise you have Oiled for Fire shit and it also gives -20% Spd I guess.Offensively, you have a bit more freedom in battle. Madness is a 2.0x Atk/Mag multiplier and Phalanx is another 1.5x Atk multiplier, and these stack with each other and the basic stat buffs. You also have the rare Chaos Dungeon skill Awakening (2.0x Mag, +100% Crit and another action) but only if you're a mage, since it drops your Attack to 1 for the duration. Pre-combat prep is something that usually ends up getting glossed over, but it's arguably the most important since it isn't something you can change in combat. The best covenants can give you another action, or 1.5x Atk/Mag multipliers that stack with the above multipliers. Your gear can give you additional individually stacking offensive multipliers or bonus actions as well, which can be invaluable for hitting the stat cap and shitting out more damage.
>>2987526>>2987527can i go back and find them even after clearing through everything?
>>2987543Yes, but if you don't meet Red at least ten times before the final boss you're screwed for the run
I wish berserker's roar didn't make you lose control of your character. It makes the combat feel too simple.
>>2987549ah fuck, new run then
>>2987559I believe there are 15 Red spots, you might have a chance.
>>2987572I cleared everything though, do I just wander around at 0 sen?
>>2987575Nah, if you don't meet her in Lutwidge right after Headhunter you wont run into her at all, and if you get an area's completion mark she vanishes from the area.
>>2987579yup, it's joever for me. What is a completion mark? Do you get that for beating the area boss?
>>2987581Fog gate boss, getting by the guards in the Garden of Heart, reaching Upper Lutwidge, Cathedral lever, and the PL0 scene at Spore Forest's campfire. 10 unlocks the stairs to Dinah.
>>2987588>PL0 scene at Spore Forest's campfirewhat's that?
>>2987594A hallucination involving Alice
>>2987599and what's PL again? I forgot
>>2987600Progress level, it's synonymous with completion marks.
>>2987602Ok, so to trigger it I start from a new game and rush straight to it, without killing any bosses?
>>2987606Yes but you can't meet Red if you do it, so you might as well do it, restart, then go meet Red in Lutwidge.
>>2987617>Grimm still walks around in his helmet IRL
I had no idea how broken hidden body was until I backstabbed the kidnapper for half his HP. This just feels cheap.
>>2987617Find the romance!
Kinda disappointed that i never got to tell Mabel that her garden actually fucking sucks before she went and poppedAlso i initially mistook "Shantranj" to be an euphemism for her pussy, rather than her garden's name, lines like "having a longing for her Shatranj" just made more sense in that way
>>2987856wow mabel's pussy is really deep
Is the final boss in BS2 meant to be difficult to kill or am I just underlevelled? She's eating 24k crits like they are nothing.
>>2987882>Is the final boss in BS2 meant to be difficult to kill or am I just underlevelled?Levels mean nothing in the long run, stats do.>24k critsGood news you're probably nowhere near the actual final boss, take the loss and get C, better luck next cycle.
>>2987902>take the loss and get CCool but before I start the next cycle could you answer two questions:When do the Covenant leaders disappear?Are there recruitable party members aside from some bosses having fairy tale summons?
>>2987954>When do the Covenant leaders disappear?If you really want to know what your time limit is take a look at the torches above the door in the Library Dream.>Are there recruitable party members aside from some bosses having fairy tale summons?Nope, no permanent party members. Enjoy the ride.
>>2987961>take a look at the torches above the door in the Library Dream.I'm guessing one lights up for every boss I defeat.
>>2987976>I'm guessing one lights up for every boss I defeat.For most intents and purposes, yes. Another easy way to generally check if the area you're in is "done" is to see if Cheshire's still there.
Sex! Sexo!Fucking a loli and her mother!I want to fuck Kuti and her momCthulhu at the same time!Oyakodon!
>>2987976you also make one progress just for doing certain actions, like interacting with Alice in spore forest, reaching upper lutwidge, pulling the lever in the cathedral, passing the guards in the queen of hearts' garden
So what is this referring to? I've read different interpretations but what do you think?
>>2988002Hopefully, Kuti won't hate us in the next game.
>>2988002Zoa is betterI will still make the three of them smell like squid though
>>2988039Leaf is probably either Nug or Yeb, meaning that she has, had, a sister that was the other, and she killer her.
>>2988048I've read about that interpretation, but people don't seem to agree as to why Leaf would use gears to do thatThe specific mention of gears makes people think about BS2 gears, so it's kind of weird
>>2988051I dunno, it seems pretty clear, read the second box of dialogue again.
>>2988045That's some wishful thinking on our part, because 1. how could she not2. that they simply got out and returned home after the collapse of the garden is kind of dubious, it's possible but so is everyone getting murdered by TCO's shitfit for losing the MC or another avatar of Mabel succeding in her 4d chess and getting everyone into her lame gardenWhile i do think we'll see her in BS3, at this point i just hope there'll be a way to get an apology through and not just a forced rape path
>>2988061She was wholesome and kawaii as fuck.>we find her corpse>just like with the heroines from BS1Bros I can't...
>>2988045That is a 10% chance at absolute best, and that 10% is post-birdening Kuti only.
>>2988073Was Kuti even influenced by the birdening? Felt more like it was her own separate thingOr at least i think that just because you can simply avoid it by not choosing to make babbies
>>2988080>Was Kuti even influenced by the birdening?Absolutely I'd say.
>>2988066I purposely added that unopened vodka bottle and nobody ever questioning it.
>>2988084If anyone could drink from a closed bottle, it'd be her.
>>2988084I'd be more inclined to question the fact that it's vodka rather than wine, it being unopened would actually be somewhat in character
>>2988100mabel still drinks the wine, she just doesn't get drunk by it.
If Lindame doesn't eventually turn out to be female i swear i'm gonna SENDAMI couldn't care less about an edgy stalker faggot taking screentime
https://witheredgryphon.github.io/walkthrough.htmlI followed this guide to it's current limit for the hidden route, what's the order I go from here?
>>2988146>I followed this guide
>>2988146if you mean you followed the guide until it ended, the beach contains DLC 1 and it's past the fish marketthere's also a bunch of stuff to the right of the bloody pond which this thing doesn't mention at all??? there's a room with a drink me/eat me found in rabbit hole (which does anyone know what the point of eat me is?) and it'll lead to the bloody pond with a ton of content to explore from there
>>2988147this is my second run, is it really that bad?
>>2988146Unlocking the hidden route is not really that complicated1. just make sure to see RRH at lutwidge, this is mandatory2. talk to her at specific bonfires, can't really miss her, need to do this about 10 timesoptional: check on her at pond of blood tears boss and terrible tragic hotel3. find the 6 alice memories, or "balls of fire" as some people call them4. get leaf's ringHonestly by doing a 0 sen run you find basically everything, except that optional hotel cutscene which actually requires 100 sen when entering
>>2988149Literally everything you need for what you're looking for is in hints.txt, there is no reason to look up an external guide for BS2 for endings. Also, if it's only your second run and you're heading straight for it, you're going to be missing on at least one other important ending that the game expects you to have the context of for the route, not to mention the possibility and more likely probability of you missing other lore critical scenes. Seriously, why the fuck are you heading for that route for your second run in the first place? Did you even figure out the initial mystery at all?
>>2988148eat me purpose is to give it to Margaret
>>2988158i don't give a shit in case you haven't noticed
>>2988156I have it in my inventory and maxed the covenant but there's no options to give it to her or anything?
>>2988155I used save scumming to trigger endings A, C, D, and E all on the first run. As far as I can tell, neither mary sue or alice are in control this time. All of the alices so far are fakes and sue is in jail in queensland. Additionally, 0 SEN is actually sanity, while 100 SEN is insanity since a bunch of NPCs just speak in jibberish and ending E alice mentions that you've fixed your mind. From the memories I've gathered so far, it looks like Alice, Grimm, and Sue used to be friends in another world, but an apocalypse happened and they ended up in control of wonderland.
>>2988160ask for sex and you'll get the option to use it
>>2988161>Alice Grimm and Sue used to be friendsOh boy, kinda hurts to read, I suppose you'll get a better picture on the backroutOr maybe go rewatch the 3rd movie at Queensland with Prickett
>>2988161>I used save scumming to trigger endings A, C, D, and E all on the first run.The ending you are looking for here is B, it and E in a distant second are the most important "normal" endings in the game. Feel free to look up the requirements in hints.txt if you're only interested in speeding through BS2 I guess. At some point though you should give Queensland a long and hard search if you haven't yet, ideally before going through with the route.I'll pass on talking about everything else just yet.
>>2988146This website seems old as shit, is this where the first MTL came from?
>>2988173Yes, I believe it is.
uoh cheeky oyster sex
>>2988178>>2988192She asked me to hand out fish to the land residents, how does that work? I sold a bunch to the fish merchant in the fish market, but that didn't seem to be what she meant.
>>2988201Just sell it all to the bear
>>2988201Get rid of the full stack, one way or another. Sell or store it, doesn't matter as long as there's no fish in your inventory when you go back.
>>2988080Yeah she became cuccoo and flood everything. The lobster and walrus thiiiccwu dies too.
>>2988084Such is the kino power of a niggaman.
I manifested an Alice last year, can I manifest her back?
>>2988280Only another tulpa can replace a tulpa
>>2988283It wasn't a tulpa, she was real.I don't know if my law of attraction was so strong that it manifested an Alice IRL, but that may be the case
>>2988192why did she do it, he could have been a friend
I think i filled all conditions for the hidden route, but the opening is the exact same. Does the hidden route trigger later?
>>2988530nvm I needed to hit escape
Still.. patiently waiting for Red's game release and translation.I was recommended The Witch's House a while back from these threads, is it good?
>>2988597Yep, it's a classic. I also recommend OFF, Hylics and Fear & Hunger
>>2988597Oh boy, The Witch's House is a classic. Don't look at any spoils, just play it.There's also a novel that was adapted into a manga that you should read after finishing it.I dunno if it's the nostalgia speaking, but I prefer it to L Depth.I also second >>2988599, and Ib, which will have a switch port soon.
>>2988283What even is a tulpa at this point.
>>2988599>>2988607Ok thanks, I'll start with that one.Also I can't wait to see Leaf again. I miss this brat like you wouldn't believe.
>>2988610But Anon.... Leaf is now fully hated.
>>2988615I will save her.
I was not prepared for the difficulty spike in the Oyster's Ocean.
>>2988622You can't save someone who cannot be saved.It's funny how Leaf and TCO are a mirror to each others based on their own understand of humanity and love. They are both toxic but in different way. TCO can only see love as obsessive love, something that cannot be changed, in a stage, meanwhile, Leaf fully understand love, but is just a plain psycho about everything, including expressing her love.Hilariously, this make her seems like the lovecraft Nyarly.
>>2988641> Leaf fully understand love, but is just a plain psycho about everything, including expressing her love.Actually, I don't think that's entirely the case.I think Leaf does love you for real, but her idea of love was twisted by a mother who neglected her and a manipulative monster that groomed her into hate.
>>2988647I always got the impression that her mom, Baphy-chaaaaaaan, just didn't care about her, which could be a niggerman thing judging by Kuti, and that after being shown THINGS by Jabber, started to develop the Human sickness but in the wrong way. In the library, she wanted to show her creation to her mom but that it was "such a letdown", whatever that meant.Pure Love ultimately got in almost everyone's heart and won, but not for TCO, Leaf, Bang and JabberAt least that's what I got from it.
>>2988713Yeah the first part of your post is correct. I don't know about the last sentence. I think Leaf's heart, while still corrupted by Jabber, may be salvageable, if anything because she loves Grimm, she's just twisted about it to the point where she'd rather kill him than let him go with someone else.
>>2988731>I don't know about the last sentenceNone of them want you to go, seemingly the role they played got stuck to their faces until it became reality. Then you got Kuti, "Miranda', it's all oddly romantic.I don't even think that Leaf can understand a world without Grimm, and I'm not sure that Jabber really corrupted her, she just showed her fairy tales.
I'm trying to harvest all of the fairy tales in BSII. I'm yet to find the Hansel and Gretel, the Goose that Lays Golden Eggs and the Wizard of Oz. I suspect I might be able to get Hansel and Gretel from the Giant House if I fight it with Red Hood or something. At first I was thinking that Goose and Oz might be people I can meet out in the world, but Catherine, Elizabeth, Jeanne and Elma have disproven this so far. I know Pinocchio was added with DLC 1, are they hidden off in a DLC 2 or 3 area? If not, where should I be looking for them, and how sane should I be?
>>2988737If you're thinking it's like BS1, you don't actually need to fill out the library in this game, that's not the central plot/mystery anymoreDLC 2 is only the chaos dungeon, and DLC 3 is basically an entirely seperate experience. the wizard of oz is kinda a thing you stumble onto while you explore the asylum with 100 SEN, but for the other two, have you checked the dutchess mansion? Or what's on the left side of caroll river?
>>2988743 I know it's not needed for an ending, I just want to do it. I have to kill the chick, don't I? I should've expected to find Oz in the Asylum, I read the notes on Dorothy there. Thanks.
how do i reach the Crimean Nursing Graveyard? I've fulfilled the ending requiments
I wish the hunter class had the Bloodborne cap instead of looking like scuffed Sephiroth.
>>2988781Take the boat in Carroll River, not the one that takes you to the Old Sheep, rather the one you find going down from Ox WardYou must have 31+ Sen for the boat to appear tho, if everything's correct there''ll be 2 monsters from the DLC area
>>2988970the winter warrior and winter sorceress? they kick my ass so i'll grind more
>>2989286you are supposed to run past them, they are stronger than most bosses in the dlc3actually, you probably should run from every non essential fight at this point
>>2989286Keep in mind that the dev accounted for players having massive\max stats, so DLC3 as a whole is quite different as it uses % based attacks and other gimmicks, making choice of gear more importantBut desu it's better to just run past every non-mandatory fight
>>2989288>>2989292i really see what you mean now
I love leaf so much bros...
>>2989367>>2989375 Wow, the Demiurge asked ME to be her top guy? Ok Demiurge, I'll do it, I'll be your top guy!
This is one of two images that finally convinced me to play the game
>>2989420The other was the Little Mermaid. HOW DO YOU GET THE TIGER IN BS1?!?!?!?!?!
I'm glad /vrpg/ loves Leaf
>>2989433I love her as the unapologetically evil character she is, but beyond that eehhh
>>2989412Kill that bug, anon.
>>2989433No, we don't
>>2989437same, to the point that if she actually becomes a good character i'm gonna lose all interestlet my evil women be evil dammitsame thing applies to Elizabeth, altho to a lesser extent given the context
Fuck, kill, marry
>>2989458F, M, KGlad the frigid+bestiality lover RRH was retconned
>>2989461You would marry TCO? Are you crazy?
>>2989458KKKAs a true in-character Grimm would end up doing
>>2989463No blackface no problem i say, i also run a 9999 SEN build
black souls left a big impact on me, ironically enough the other game that did that was dark souls. there's something about EMMM being inspired by the alice in wonderland books that makes him stand out as an interesting guy, i feel like he could go far if he keeps working on this series
>>2989468>Implying blackface is a problemAnon, you are not a true Alice enjoyer if you can't consciously and willingly fuck an eldritch horror for her
>>2989476I get what you mean, having finished them recently i'm currently in the "absolutely obsessed" phase, which is gonna last for a few weeks if i know myselfMakes me feel bad for not having played the games sooner, since there's no one to talk about the story nowAltho i did end up playing\reading some Alice in Wonderland related stuff, and reading the original book even explained some in-game quotes that still eluded me
>>2989479the game implied it, i'm just following the rules
>>2989480i thought i was in the same place as you were but it's been months since i've finished both BS1 and 2 and i'm still drawn to it. everything about it feels so new and inspired to me, there's the bizarre way that fairy tale characters are combined with niggermen and how in 2 there are niggermen that play as offshoots of alice.There's the gameplay itself that is so unique and well done for an rpgmaker way, this was my first actual full playthrough of an rpgmaker and i don't think anything else will be able to live up to this kind of quality. every aspect of this series is so interesting to look at, even the anachronistic art that shaped the visuals of the game because EMMM had to use free art for. there's so much i'd like to talk about that i think i'll write a review for it
>>2989421> HOW DO YOU GET THE TIGER IN BS1?!?!?!?!?! NTA, but these games are piss easy to modify.
>>2989487how did you change the portrait?
>>2989433never ever, faggot
>>2989458I would marry red if she put on some clothes.
>>2989420What the hell is this from?
>>2989496a certain blob artist drew it
>>2989487Most RPGm are easy to modify.
>>2989461>frigid+bestiality lover RRH was retconnedIt wasn't, the frigid part at least.
>>2989486god the combat is unironically some of the best I've ever played in a turn based rpg which is funny since it's literally conceived by just trying to copy dark souls, before turning into the kino system we have in bs2. I tried playing crystal project recently but I just kept thinking about how black souls blows it out of the water in basically every aspect
>>2989577Have you tried Bravely Default/Second? It game me much of the same feeling as endgame weapon switching, with you having multiple actions in disposal during a single turn, all of which can synergise with each other.As for BS2, I recommend you give SL1 a try eventually.
>>2989476I'm of the opinion that anything experimental and innovative, that also takes actual effort to get through, will leave an impact on you.For me, it was Dark Souls 1, Black Souls series, and Lobotomy Corporation. Haven't played those yet, but I've seen people say the same of Pathologic, Fear & Hunger, Rain World and Signalis. And while I personally think Outer Wilds, Umineko and Ever17 fail in their execution (to varying degrees), I can see why people would feel the way they do about them.And it extends to beyond vidya as well. Blood Meridian, Moby Dick, Captain Beefheart and Death Grips all left a big impact on me, and they all share the aforementioned traits. And before someone complains that comparing those to Black Souls is like comparing a whale to a flea - I am aware, I'm talking solely about their surface-level traits and personal (i.e. subjective) impact.
>>2989458FUCK AliceKILL LeafMARRY Red Hood
>>2989586>PathologicI want to play it, but I don't have the same amount of free time I had when younger.
>>2989496Ill marry her anyways, but agreed. I prefer her in her old outfit.
>>2989458KILL LeafRAPE RedMARRY fluffy
>>2989587We are brothers now.Until we must fight to the death for Red Hood.
>>2989458No, I go to the true Alice instead. once i figure which Alice is not a demon mascaraing as her
Decided to do more and draw Grimm with his armour on. despite the first part just being a sketch over I think i've gotten quite good.I think i know what i will do with this one
>>2989458Fuck Red, kill lif and marry Lorina (not pictured because we are having honeymoon sex)
>>2990047>mfw a crit barely does damage to a winterbell knigger
>>2990040But which real one?
Am i the only one who's not really "that" hyped for Dead Red Hood? I'm way more interested in the game about the demonic princesses since i definitely did not have my fill of them with just BS1, while i think i've seen enough of Red Hood at this point
>>2990569I'mma be real with you. I'm not interested in it either, and am more hyped for the four princesses game too, but EMMM never mindbroke me with disappointment, so I'm more than willing to give him a chance.I'm not sure if I disagree or agree with you about us having seen enough of Red Hood, since EMMM mastered the Dark Souls art of "You like a character despite it not being shoved into your face like most IPs these days for players with attention span of a dead fish", and her being the last link genuine link to the first game, so just enjoy the pic.
>>2990461ctits don't do extra damage to them
>>2990569>Am i the only one who's not really "that" hyped for Dead Red Hood?I'm not too hyped about the game itself, but about all the new characters and the new bits of overarching story we'll get.Also seeing Mabel once again and the keikaku she probably set up involving Red.
>>2990569when I started playing bs1 I was completely infatuated with Rapunsel so I know there has to be people who truly loves their first waifuBut honestly, besides the Sleeping beauty I don't think they have that much of a narrative hook to them
>>2990716Same here with Rapunzel, i think i felt worse betraying her than the other party membersOne of the reasons Lorina ended up my 2nd fav in bs2 is because i've felt the similarities between the two of them
>>2990716>I don't think they have that much of a narrative hook to themi do believe he's gonna come up with something in that regard, unless he already stated that the game is purely fanservice starring the princesses
>>2990716maybe it'll end up like DLC 3 where despite the "selling point/marketing" being about choosing a side between the lion and unicorn it's only really like 40% of the actual content. It could focus more about the lost empire and therefore leaf's power to change or something, do we even know what all the mentions of "**** in ***" were/meant in BS1? Actual info about the princesses could be cool too with actual focus given to them of course
>>2990716>>I don't think they have that much of a narrative hook to them>Don't forget elder sister... <3
someone has that link to that one site that has all of lewis' books? i remember someone linking it on a thread here a few months ago but i lost it
>>2989458kill them all.
>>2990569A large part of my hype is for Columbo in all honesty.
>>2990594WTF are those things on red's chest
IM GONNA SAY ITred hood is more of a mary sue than mary sue
>>2991056i hope leaf gets to be the very 1st companion in bs3, only difference is that after every remark we now have the option to punch her super hardand she'll never shut up because she'll end up liking the pain, making us conflicted about doing it as we don't want to reward her
>>2991039Wow, Leaffags are as stupid as their saint patron>>2991059Not only her powers were usurpated by Grimm but she made an enemy of every relevant niggermanShe's dead Jim
>>2991077cope, she's true ending material
>>2991078>true ending>bs's true endings are always tragediesI'm up for it if it means she gets the rope
>>2991082yeah, but real tragedy for players would be seeing her get a flawless good ending with no cruel twist
>>2991082BS2 ending didn't really feel like a tragedy to me, bittersweet sure, all the heroines (except the damn bug) have bit the dust and the MC may be alone, but he has now the power to fix everythingGranted, it'll definitely not be as easy as snapping his fingers, but the hope is thereI'd argue BS1 end D didn't feel like a tragedy either, more like "BUY THE NEXT GAME"
>>2991096it's might not be a tragedy to you, the player, but the color fading from the screen tells you all you need to know about how grimm feels about this.
>>2991104But i thought he was literally me
>>2991109post your literary works
>>2991109there are at least 7 other yous in there, maybe 8, and actually im literally him so sorry (me) but it made (you) feel sad enough to wait for the screen the fade to black
>>2991111Hey I waited for the screen to go back to the main title by itself, i just wanted a bit more...
>>2991110I'm a wattpad writer it's no wonder Mary Sue chose me among the other writers
>>2991059The first companion slot should be reserved for the main heroine!
>>2991250I fucking wish, but not only it would be way too convenient to say the least, it would definitely cheapen the impact if such a reunion happened just like thatAlso the doomer\realist part in me already knows that Prickett won't be returning, either period or in the best case scenario she'll be back as Alice
>>2989348DLC3 bosses are mostly puzzle bosses, grinding wont help you as much as you think it will.
>>2989461She's only frigid with people she doesn't like, and the list of people she actually likes is literally doggo and Grimm. Kid's badly traumatized.>>2989495According to Toro she wears so little because it's easier to wash blood off skin than clothing. Give her a safe and happy life and she'll wear clothes again.
>>2990872Was it project gutenberg? Lewis' books have been public domain for a long time.
>>2991077It's even worse than that, her powers hate her. Imagine being so much cancer that a part of yourself doesn't want you.This is peak intellectual cuck, cucked out of her spot, cucked out of her place, cucked out of her power.>>2991250God I fucking wish, but best case scenario would be coming back at the end.
Someday this world will convert to Alicechyism, the true mankind oriented religion free of worship and sacrifice
>>2991364yes that one thanks negro. have a funny gif.
The perfect heroine, Prickett!
How do I cope with never being able to find another game like BS2? single party member rpgs + turn based combat is pretty rare nowadays and it's exploration, freedom to kill npcs as well as the weapon variety and grinding autism really hits a sweet spot to me.
>>2991559Have you played Underrail? An absolute gem of a game
>>2991563Yeah, I got hundreds of hours on it across multiple characters. It's a good game but I'm burned out on it.
>>2991573Based. I only ever did two playthroughs, one SMG on normal (gave up halfway because I felt like I fucked up my build) and one Chem Pistols on hard. I should give dominating a try somedayUnfortunately, I have little advice to give you beyond 'Try an SL1 run' and 'Wait for Underrail: Infusion'. There's also the Geneforge series by Spiderweb Software, but I haven't given it a try yet, so I can't vouch for how good the gams are
>>2990047I've finally outdone myself. i hope Alice appreciates the extra effort.
>>2991606>bandage on helmetkek
>>2991559You can't. We are condemned to play games that are inferiors to it in every way.I've heard about NPC Dreams which is very BS-like, but it's not translated so I dunno if it's as good or not>>2991563>UnderrailWhat izzzzz it?
>>2991653Underrail is a gameplay-focused CRPG, and a really fun one at that. I enjoyed it even more than Wasteland 2 (I should give 3 a try...) and Original Sin games. And unlike Original Sin, its writing is actually serviceableJust like BS2, you'll spend the entirety of your playthrough alone and isolated. Plus the game doesn't fuck around, you WILL need to think about your build even on normal>NPC DreamsI'd be cautious, at this point I'm convinced that Black Souls is the only good RPGMaker H-game in existence. Both SEQUEL and Demons Roots were a massive disappointment, and MGQ:P didn't really grip me. Which is surprising, given how much I love job systems
>>2991685SEQUEL is still good, it just has a shitty and very repetitive story, characters, and pretentious story.The only good thing about MGQP is the gameplay autism, which is great, because it's 90% gameplay autism, the rest is the plot, which is trash pretentious shit too, like SEQUEL.We are fucked.
>>2991708Sequel is mostly a brainless slog where you go forward interacting with everything you can. I stuck along with it until asylum which was so egregiously disrespectful to your time that I dropped the series after. The games are very visually polished, I'll give hakika that.
>>2991708>We are fucked.I don't really feel that way, RPGs are doing very well. BG3 soon, Jagged Alliance 3 is developed under the original designer's watch, there's that Warhammer CRPG by Owlcat, Colony Ship looks promising and Underrail: Infusion is one of my most awaited games next to Silksong. And then there's of course the upcoming EMMM games. DRH is not an RPG, but the 5 princesses game and BS3 will likely take plentifully from the DLC3 combat system, which was actually kinda funAnd even when it comes to last year's releases things seem to be going swimmingly. I enjoyed my time with Crystal Project, and I've seen that Termina and Astlibra were very well received
>>2991738We're talking about rpgm games though but I'm not really hyped by BG3.
>>2991724Remember when sequel was fun, with fun characters? I do. It was fun.>I stuck along with it until asylum which was so egregiously disrespectful to your timeASYLUM is what Black Souls would be, if EMMM had no genius whatsoever.From that game, hakika made sure to make all characters as unsympathetic and the plot as retarded as possible.
>>2991708>SEQUEL is still goodI've played the series to full completion from Blight to Kludge, including the utter mistake known as Asylum. By far the best entries in the series are Blight and Colony, and I wouldn't say that's a glowing recommendation of both of those games either.
>>2987350While I'll admit that a good part of it is select color choice, which I have yet to do really well on, the main thing for EMMM tier scribbles is hatching. Lots of hatching, and having some bizzaro combo of very good line confidence and very poor line confidence. Objects should still be very clear in their shape and form, but their edges are rough hewn thanks to the scribbles. Comboing hatching and darker colors for shading is also pretty effective. The main part I haven't been able to figure out well, are faces. Mainly his heroine faces. Mostly because I can't just rely on excessive hatching and scribbles, and the way he and I draw faces is rather divergent.>>2987428Pretty solid first job, anon. Think you nailed the hair, especially for a platinum blonde color like that. Shirt and cloak for pretty well too. The blood stands out a bit, and isn't quite how he does it, but that's not a big deal. Idk if it is how EMMM does it, but I do really like how you did the bandages, especially with that slight rust on em.Only major thing I could say is perhaps have her stick her left, our right, leg out a bit. She is standing Contrapposto, with her hip sticking out a bit, so having her leg out in the opposite direction to help better convey counterbalancing could help.
>>2991763I was being sarcastic, the only good thing about present sequel is the gameplay, which we gotta admit, is just better and better, but the rest is garbage like junk food. Recylced and recycled.Colony really was the peak, but even then it fall appart post game. It was the beginning of the end in a way.I have no faith in IR.
>>2991750Asylum was hakika's attempt at making a dark souls interconnected world where you can go anywhere easily because it's all so intricately intertwined, except it missed the entire point. Dark souls filled every nook and cranny with things to see, kill, and obtain, and asylum had repeat boring mobs in standard turn based jrpg combat filling enormous maps that had loot like a single fucking currency that I can't even remember the name of. Even EMMM knew better in bs1 and hakika had 3+7(?) games behind him to figure it out. He spent a non trivial time making something so incredibly fucking braindead it just boggles my mind, forgetting the characters
>>2991779>especially with that slight rust on emThat's pus>so having her leg out in the opposite direction to help better convey counterbalancing could help.Yeah I'm dogshit at poses.
>>2991780>which we gotta admit, is just better and betterI'm of the opinion that Hakika can't design a skill tree or balance characters/combat well enough to save his own life. Asylum was especially awful, but even Kludge wasn't great.
I wonder if we will spend the vast majority of BS3 being alone, or have actual party members that aren't summons.Maybe as Grimm awakens his powers we can bring back characters we met in prevous games.
>>2991747Ah, in that case we have much less choice. Though RPGMaker games were always really hit and miss, the low barrier of entry caused a lot of both great and horrible games to be released. Still, the market isn't that bad these days. There's Termina, the upcoming EMMM games, and maybe we'll get the YTTD finale someday
>>2991830BS3 being an SRPG, rather than your traditional JRPG, could be an interesting experiment. Would make sense given that BS3 will likely be about different gardens and niggermen war
>>2991836My. War. My. War.Rastis rastis rastis rastis.
>>2991824Really? I thought kludge's trees were really great. No more third skill tree with the same passives for everyone, nor having to press a button and getting lost in the menus for it.Now asylum's was just cancerous, the familiars was just pure blueballing.
>>2991787It make me so assmad, he has almost ten games behind, some being really good and beloved, but he somehow though that making a game with a big ass empty maps that are easy to get lost into but impossible to enjoy, with obligatory mob farming for money and shards, so that you craft brands for your weapons, which take fucking forever, because the mobs and merchants are jews, and level ups only give HP, MP, and skill points.In what kind of bizzaro universe you do that and think it's a good idea?And that's without talking about the shitty plot, hateable characters and the multiple endings. It's like the dude looked at the most chuuni and edgy thing and thought it was cool.
Tbh bs combat sucked ass until dlc3
>>2991884>>2991888No, they're correct. Even DLC 3's combat isn't that impressive.
>>2991884tell us how did you fought the dubstep knight and god's fish
>>2991904No, they're far from correct.DLC3 forced you to make full use of the battle system's mechanics such as weapon swapping and the different skills.It was a breath of fresh air coming from the main game + DLCs 1 and 2 where you basically stomp every single thing with brute force.
>>2991909>Far from correct>Writes a post in complete agreementIs this a bot
>>2991912What that anon meant is that the combat system was already fun even before DLC3, but the enemy balance was shit. Try doing an SL1 run and you'll see that the gameplay is, in fact, fun
>>2991909>DLC3 forced you to make full use of the battle system's mechanics such as weapon swapping and the different skills.DLC 3 could have gone much farther than what it did, what it asks of the player amounts to basic competence and understanding of the system more than anything.>It was a breath of fresh air coming from the main game + DLCs 1 and 2 where you basically stomp every single thing with brute force.That still applies to most of DLC 3's content too.
>>2991912>Writes a post in complete agreementAre youi perhaps an ESL?To say that "DLC 3's combat isn't that impressive" is far from being correct. That is what I said.It IS impressive BECAUSE it forces you to employ every tool the battle system hands to you as a Player.It encourages you to do the most you can with the tools it gives you, where as the main game + DLCs 1 and 2 did not.
>>2986039>implying that EMMM isn't going to go for the "memories were manipulated, world is a fake" twist for a fourth time in a rowit's basically necessary because he clearly designs these games so that any one of them could be your first (even if you should play them chronologically)
>>2991972adding on to my post, he's gonna do it for both the spinoffs, too, mark my words
Can't believe there are people that unironically like the gameplay of an rpgmaker game (played as a straight rpg at least, adventure\puzzle games i don't mind)If there was one thing i'd be emabrassed about playing this game it wouldn't be the setting of edgy dark fairy tales, the abundance of rape, loli or trap porn, or the shameless "homages" to souls, but rather the gameplay part
>>2991955mind you, not everyone liked that, i've read plenty of complains that dlc3 turned everything into a "gimmick" and that you had to use specific setups instead of just playing however you wanted
>>2991955You're saying "No, they're far from correct." after their "No, they're correct.", implying you disagree with "Tbh bs combat sucked ass until dlc3"
>>2991983By JRPG standards it's actually not that bad. It's no SaGa, but I certainly enjoyed it more than Chrono Trigger or Xenogears
don't engage, people who enjoy jrpgs are mentally ill
>>2991990It doesn't work at all for me unfortunately, anything rpgmaker just makes me think about the times as a kid when me and my group of friends tried their hand at it like we were hoping to make the next final fantasy or somethingI even remember one of my friends making a quest that ended up with a porn video as a rewardIt's like the opposite of nostalgia, even if i can see that rpgmaker as a whole got better with timeBut i have no issue in saying that the story (and art, and even some bgms) more than make up for it, still gonna cheat to high hell tho, i ain't gonna grind for real
>>2991990Don't bite you fool.
>>2991955>It IS impressive BECAUSE it forces you to employ every tool the battle system hands to you as a Player.>extra turns extra turns extra turns>damage damage damageThis easily solves 90% of the fights in the DLC, including the final boss.>oh, %HP damage exists too we should use that>fear too I guess?Florence's second phase and Unis's fight. Status effects in general are sorely underutilized as a concept for battle strategy in BS.>break? never heard of itThen again, Break was only ever relevant a handful of times to begin with, shouldn't expect much else. And no, Gun Break doesn't count as part of the core Break mechanic I'm talking about here. Gun Break was used because it's a way to cheese out damage with watchspam, not to fish for a Break on fuckers. Speaking of underutilized mechanics, Guarding ends up being ignored in favor of damage damn near 100% of the time. Dodge is also left in the dust, but it's somewhat more understandable since dodgestacking could break the game design even more than it already is.>weapon swapping in combatHonestly not needed in DLC 3, or even throughout the game in general. The most useful stuff you can get is an extra turn from starting a fight with Andor +5, another from swapping to the Anchor and using Indignation, and a beefy (though unnecessary) defensive boost from the Knight King's Sword. Items and gear will cover virtually everything you really need in combat, along with your basic skills.Lorde's jail fight is only one that really forces the player to approach the fight differently from the other fights in DLC 3 or even BS2 in general, and even that's only because the game gives him the first move and forces the player to work around him. After the initial barrage he's disappointingly easy to actually fight.
>>2991994>>2992001How about you just go offline if you don't want to interact with anyone
>>2991909Hell, just try to do DLC3 with subpar stats.The general normal mob balance was wack, but it's mainly because you are in a open world.>>2991972God I hope not.
>>2992005How about not making obvious baits?
>>2992003>Lorde's jail fight is only one that really forces the player to approach the fight differentlyWouldn't even give it such high praise, after all even just using an honeybee ring is enough for him
>>2992001People bait and troll much less than you might think. Anons, and people in general really, just hold really bizarre opinions. I get flak all the time in Witcher threads for saying that I prefer W1 to W3>>2991997I can understand the stigma, but it's nonetheless impressive what the creator managed to do within the constraints of the engine. Very few JRPGs allow you this kind of freedom of combat, with lvl 1 runs being possible at all. It's clear a lot of effort went into making the combat system, with a fuckton of different weapons, spells, equipment, enemy types. It strains the engine to its limit. I know RPGMaker games - and especially their combat - are associated with low effort work, but this is anything but
>>2992003No offence, but you are overestimating the brainpower of everyone, underestimating the depth of boss fights, or just bragging, because not everyone is gonna look at the game, go look at every solutions on the net, and know everything.Exploration, dying, and not knowing is part of the game, you seems to imply a new player would know everything you pointed out from the start and know how to use them all the time.
>>2992015>the stigmaI think that's it for most people, it's like almost impossible to not add "...for\even if it is - an rpgmaker game" after saying it's a good gameAt the end of the day, on a technical level, i don't see much difference with jrpgs of old, like i remember playing ff1&2 gba edition and they sucked worse balls in every aspect
>>2991989>You're saying "No, they're far from correct."Yes.>after their "No, they're correct."Because they're not. Again, they're far from being correct.This isn't hard to understand Anon. English is an actually rather simple language.>implying you disagree with "Tbh bs combat sucked ass until dlc3"Indeed, I do. It did not suck ass at all. It was far fucking better than the main game's and the first 2 DLCs.
I'm reminded of how RHW had this miniboss that had a fuckload of health but you could poison it and put it to sleep to kill it without trouble and I found it to be the most interesting fight for long until late into bs2. JRPGs suck and provide the same level of mental engagement as grinding in an MMORPG, with only gimmick fights or self-imposed restrictions to make it interesting. The fact that everyone has to say "b-but you can do a sl1 run" is precisely why it's not inherently good. That's a restriction you placed yourself onto the game to make it challenging and engaging. If you were forced to do an sl1 run in the first place then yes it's a good game. It's like people playing nuzlocke in pokemon because the standard way to play is literally for children. It's good, flexible design that a game allows the player to impose a gradient difficulty on their own terms, but it doesn't automatically make the systems in place inherently thoughtful or exciting. Imagine playing a puzzle game where every puzzle had a button next to a locked door where if you can't figure it out you just had to push the button for like 5 minutes and the door would open.
>>2992003>>extra turns extra turns extra turns>>damage damage damage>This easily solves 90% of the fights in the DLC, including the final boss.t. Someone who didn't actually play the DLC.Not gonna read the rest; there's just no point.Anyone who played it knows you can't bust your way through with sheer stats alone.
>>2992027>implying you disagree with "Tbh bs combat sucked ass until dlc3">Indeed, I do. It did not suck ass at all. It was far fucking better than the main game's and the first 2 DLCs.I'm sorry, who's illiterate again?
>>2992018>you are overestimating the brainpower of everyoneOther people having brain issues isn't my fault, or my problem.>underestimating the depth of boss fightsMechanical depth means little when the mechanics essentially amount to window dressing. A large part of the reason why people opt for SL1 runs is to actually feel the need to engage in those mechanics instead of just blasting through everything like they would on a normal run. Even then you can still blast through shit pretty hard on SL1 runs, you just need to pay more attention to how you set yourself up.>or just braggingIf actually having RPG experience and doing SL1 runs of BS counts as bragging, then sure.>because not everyone is gonna look at the gameAssuming you're not talking about something like looking at the game's coding (which I've never done), not actually paying attention to the mechanics the game puts in front of you is a player issue and a player issue alone.>go look at every solutions on the netNever did this either.>and know everything.Well I wouldn't say I know everything, but actually playing the game has given me a good amount of knowledge on how it works.>you seems to imply a new player would know everything you pointed out from the start and know how to use them all the time.I did, by the time I started DLC 3. You're not some freshly fallen undead with brain damage from landing in the Crash Chamber head first, by now the player should have run through the base game, DLC 1 and DLC 2 and have some basic idea of how shit works.
>>2992031>>until dlc3>I'm sorry, who's illiterate again?Me. I conceed. Good night.
>>2992029how did YOU play the dlc? 'cause that's also how i've cleared it, literally just stacked bonus actions and attack+1 and either spammed basic attack, meteor shower or the thunder triple spell, then i added the dlc3 80% revive armor and the 2 spells that did like % damage and poison\laceration and stuffthe only fights i remember any different were like the corpse eaters that you needed to dispel first and maybe Lorde 'cause you needed to not get killed asapWhat other fights COULDN'T be cleared by just extra turns and huge damage? Lindamea?
>>2992039Good night, anon
>>2992028>JRPGs suck and provide the same level of mental engagement as grinding in an MMORPGBelieve me anon, I am fully aware. But BS2 does manage to stand out, if barely, among its competition. JRPG standards are so woefully low that even the Wubwub Knight and the Killer Rabbit (+rematch) are unusually difficult bossesYou should compare like with like - BS2's combat system will inevitably lose out to something like Triangle Strategy, Underrail, or even Library of Ruina - but by the already low JRPG standards, BS2 is above averageIt's by no means a perfect game, but you should give credit where credit's due - it managed to innovate in a stale genre
>>2992029>t. Someone who didn't actually play the DLC.>Jekyll and Hyde (special note for the fight mechanic/swap halfway through though)>Lingeriena>Nurse Call (fight strategy basically amounts to pic related)>Florence phase 1Straightforward unga does NOT work for Florence phase 2. lmao watchspamming shit from Jabber's scythe and stacking ailments for more %HP damage does though, so the core idea of damage damage damage and extra turns extra turns extra turns remains.>Lorde (after the initial barrage is dealt with)>Lion>Unicorn (after being hit with Fear)>Wind of Winterbell>Carnacki>Gerda>Lindamea phases 1 and 2 (as long as you're not a faggot and don't touch his balls like a retard)Lindamea phase 3 is technically a survival round, as long as you're still alive when the immortality runs out and he's at 0 HP, you win.>ALL>FUCKING (though you'll have to wait a turn if you're only relying on physical damage here IIRC)>8>PHASES>OF>THE>GG>FIGHTAny major fights I'm forgetting? I'll admit it's been a bit since I fully ran through DLC 3. Stats are a meme in DLC 3 but that doesn't mean they're useless either, especially offensive stats.
that's why i play sequel*grinds rng endless dungeon for 400000 hours to deal 2 more damage against the superboss with inflated stats*
Side note, how is a sl1 supposed to be impressive in a game where you can buy stats without leveling up?Feels like one of those asinine ds1 challenges "every monster is gwyn\other boss!" where they just stand at firelink shrine and grind souls by waiting for bosses to fall at a cliff and die, only for then to powerlevel to a point where it doesn't matter anymore
>>2992077An SL1 run involves using no stat-boosting souls
>>2992077The first part of the oops all gwyn videos was absolutely fucking gold though
>>2992077>Side note, how is a sl1 supposed to be impressive in a game where you can buy stats without leveling up?SL1 runs are (or at least intended to be) done without the use of colored souls. SL1 with base stats, everything else is done with items, gear, and covenants. Anyone that actually uses colored souls in an SL1 run is missing the point entirely, since the vast majority of your actual strength comes from colored souls, to the point where doing a SL999 no colored souls run would be legitimately more challenging than an SL1 colored souls run.
>>2992079ah well my mistake then, that is impressive
>>2992084Yep. Recommended stats for DLC3 are 10k. SL1 makes do with 13~ on average. And SL1 difficulty 9 runs are even more impressive
>>2992083> the vast majority of your actual strength comes from colored soulsI remember feeling all cocky after leveling up to 999 only to soon after get bitchslapped and realize it didn't matter one bit
Cute lizard with a tasty lunch
>>2992147im about to do a color study on a fucking ai pic
>>2992153gay and gay
>>2992147nice hands ai shitter
>>2992003most of the fights on this game i won by turtling with the bunker shield weapon and status effects. bleed burn and poison stack nicely and there is very few enemies on the game that are immune to all 3. even the wet nurse and florence(including her second phase) i won like this
>>2992267That post isn't saying Guard can't be used at all, it's saying it's generally ignored in favor of just dealing more damage outright. For your sake though I hope you didn't only rely on those status effects and actually used shit like Jabber's scythe as well. Those ailments deal %HP damage and Jabber's scythe would speed up the process dramatically.
>>2992035>Other people having brain issues isn't my fault, or my problem.Congratulation, you are the minority.I'm not even being sarcastic, people thinking on their own, being normal aware or hyper awater, and just looking at things are a minority. I'm not fully blaming them, the true ending of BS2 is BS and their reactions after seeing the birdening is just delicious.One exemple is that in sequel kludge, there's a boss with a gimmick that an NPC explains to you: the boss is too strong for you, you must use a special Extra command for the fight.People who missed the NPC on the way were complaining about how bullshit it was, while the people who didn't were yelled at for pointing out that the solution was right under their noses.

>>2991559cope by posting Alice, drawing Alice, making Alice edits, laughing at Alice memes, Watching Alice movies, dreaming Alice dreams, Playing with Alice, Breathing Alice air, Liveing Alice life!wait for my game, i'm not abandoning it yet.
I've finished the first game twice now with all 4 endings and I'm going through the enemy files to try and make sure I haven't missed any content before moving on to the second game. I've gotten almost everything but these 5 have managed to elude me. Any advice on how to encounter them would be appreciated.
>>2993191these are your companions if you ignore/fail their questlines it's an alternative way to gather their fairy tales
>>2993195I figured that's what some of them were. The iron maiden and the duck seemed to point to Elizabeth and Goose but I wasn't sure about the others. Particularly curious about discount Aldia and the 2nd one that looks like Baphomet's true form
>>2993220>>2993220>discount Aldiathat's Elma also second one could may be Baphomet's thousand young but I don't remember seeing anything that looks like that
>>2993246Nta but I love how we got the Golden Goose becoming a literal Golden Goose, Elizabeth Bathory becoming a torture tool to drain blood, Saint Catherine becoming what you expect a Saint to become.And then you got Little Match Girl who become a fucking Fire Aldia Exploding thingTalk about escalation. It's always the quite ones.
Sex with elma
>>2993368Fuck the fujo out of her.
>>2993368best fellatio scene in the whole seriesthere's something special about feeding her souls right in front of her dad
Am I supposed to die on the first BS2 boss or should I not have chosen fluffy
>>2993697i picked fluffy but im pretty sure all of them would just die if you just decide to run into it without bothering to explore, you can access like 8-9 areas without fighting any bosses anon
>>2993700If only I had a master key... In short, regret.
>>2993724Even without master key you can go into pond of bloody tears rather than fighting the 1st boss
>>2992180The truth is that the Great Ones do not know about human anatomy and that is why their parts look weird.
>>2993191Huh, didn't know Elizabeth could get that form in bs1, i guess missing it made the reveal in bs2 a bit more surprising, even though i instantly thought of her upon reaching the pond of bloody tears anyway (hard not to), but still kinda cool
oh I'm supposed to die to go to the library dream
>>2993853use black ash to preserve 0 death counter, it unlocks a super secret ending you know
>>2993857will the Cheshire thing come out of the screen and give me a blowie? I will do it
>>2993859Useless fucking titty cat
Where do you see this photo in-game? I suppose in the adv section?Is it someone of note?
>>2993868irrc it's day 2 and in your room, and we don't know who it could be
>>2993869>>and we don't know who it could be>weAs I tell you time and time again, speak for yourself.>"Faces in the Fire" is a poem written by Lewis Carroll. In this poem, Carroll looks back towards a lost love who is already a mature woman. Sometimes this poem is used in reference to Carroll's love of Alice Liddell, but she was just a young girl when it was written thus she couldn't be the mature woman.
>>2993871From this do i take that the woman is an unnamed&never seen lost love of Carroll or, considering the warped context of the game, to actually be the old hag version of Alice Liddell?But i guess she'd be a rich old hag rather than a farmgirl so i guess it doesn't workCool reference anyway
now I'm confident I can do this zero deaths thing
do I lose anything by having read one of the dream spirit books?
>>2993907if by read you mean summoning them for bossfights, no, you're supposed to do that to get the fairy tales
>>2993871>she couldn't be the mature womanLittle do they know, little is already plenty mature enough
How would he fair in wonderland?
Would this appear if I had chosen something else in the prologue?
>>2994025No, you'd get a scene with one of the other two instead
>>2993097>a-anon what? Why are you asking me that? Geez, you're a weirdo, at least say no homo or we'll be faggots
>>2994026>picI never understood what that was. TCO?
Bros... I just noticed that Rascal causing a ruckus in the library is supposed to be a reference to how his story made raccoons become unwanted pests in Japan
>>2994205It's actually named "me" in the gallery, so make it what you want what if it's literally me?But most likely is indeed TCO since its eyes and it viewing everything are a main theme
>>2994009He has Genie, he'll manage.
>>2994026>>2994261It's the same eye that appears when you interact with TCO-Node in the fake Dream Library of DLC3, so it's probably TCO in the Duchess' Mansion too yeah. Just like in the elevators at 0 Sen and some of the blood messages, it's probably its way of telling you that it's always watching you and shit.
>>2994356lmao what a cuck, where is merry?
>>2994261anon... me is japanese for eye...
Is there a guide for the first game, I've finished it with two separate endings but I am wondering how much I am missing. Thanks.
>>2994421There is one in the in-game files, in the same folder as Game.exe
>>2994410eye is japanese for love....
>>2994533I is english for me.
>>2994536I is me is eye is love ia ai and eye see is sea is CeeAiLoveICeeEYE
>>2994356>its way of telling you that it's always watching you and shitI don't even think it's willingly doing that too.
>>2994154Isn't Bill a proud homo?>alsoYes homo
>>2994154were these bs loras posted anywhere or do i need to go hunting in the archive
>>2994805>he doesn't know
>>2994682I do.Nothing else would make sense to me.It's TCO's autistic shenanigans such as staring at you creepily and in silence.Iirc, Leaf mentions in F how It and its behavior are super creepy even to her, lol.
>>2995148I meant, more like looking at you in interest because you are it's obsession, and not like to monitor you.
Where's the boss in mushroom village?
>>2995401top right, need 0 sen
>>2989480>having finished them recently i'm currently in the "absolutely obsessed" phase, >which is gonna last for a few weeksThat's what I thought too...It's been 3 years...
>>2989458MARY AliceFUCK AliceKILL L*af
>>2995501Well it's not like i'd be totally losing all interest, just that i'd stop thinking about it constantly and checking community discussions or other ralted stuffBasically just moving onto other stuff while still waiting for next installments
>>2985862i remember on my first run my character just raped her and she tried to say she was a man, is that true? also how viable is a full rape run on a first full run? i got filtered by some demon lord looking boss
>>2995562A powerful wizard being capable of transfering himself to new bodies to keep on living, occasionally choosing female ones either just because or because it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, their personality gets warped as a result, Cagliostro from granblue fantasy is another example
What's with the horror themed enemies in the chaos dungeon?
Is Jabberwock's scythe a terrible weapon? I was looking forward to using it but it does no damage and it's abilities seem more like shitty gimmicks.
>>2995603against certain bosses it's great. i don't use in much in more standard fights though
>>2995562>i remember on my first run my character just raped her and she tried to say she was a man, is that true?No one knows!>>2995595I have no idea. Seriously, what the fuck are they?
>>2995562A. May be true, and she's actually the wizard of oz inside Dorothy's bodyB. May just be all a setting created by Mary Sue, and she's saying those things because "it's her character"There's no clear answer,except of course, just like in real life, just because you identify as or say you're a man it doesn't make you one, so Dorothy is a woman either way
>>2995608I'll stick to using a sawblade. Are there any other scythe weapons?
>>2995632iirc Hein's weapon
>>2995603turns every fight into a boss fight
>>2995635I have no idea who that is.>>2995640It makes boss fights even fucking worse. I'm trying to see whether I can use it to kill God's Odd Fish but he keeps roaring and killing me.
>>2995686Hein the train conductor
>>2995681And she was right
I think I did too much side stuff
step 1: cover your enemies in oil
And shouldn't Red Hood appear when I first get to the town or am I mixing up things?
>>2995719you need 0 sen, reload your save
>>2995719If you're >>2994025then you missed it 'cause RRH only appears at 0 progress, and interacting with spore forest alice gives 1 progress
>>2995689Killed him and got his scythe, unfortunately it's also kind of shit.
>>2995720On my first save I overdosed on black souls to pass the first boss>>2995722Is that also why a rabbit appeared in the library?
>>2995727Yes, Node appears in the library when you make 1 progress
Can someone post the link for the Japanese wiki? I forgot to save it last thread.
is there a secret sin counter in bs2? I raped a corpse
>>2995781there's no sin, only sen
>>2995787and will it make any difference on endings if I have a girl (nameless zombie npc) in the dungeon?
does dlc3 of black souls 2 make changes to the base game or something? i noticed black souls 2 and black souls 2 with dlc 3 were listed as seperate downloads for some reason, so is there a reason you wouldn't want dlc 3 or am i thinking too hard about it?
>>2989933>>2989587>>2989458My Red Hood brothers. Marry red hood. Fuck alice. Kill leaf.
>>2995863thinking too hard about it, get dlc3only thing i can think of is that maybe that dlc3 version has the changed bgms, maybe
>>2991909I literally beat DLC3 just using the upgraded storm ruler ability lol
>>2985862aside lewis stuff, what are some books i should read?
>>2995881Is this a bad joke? I don't want to read anything by that hack Fujimoto, memes be damned
>>2995863>does dlc3 of black souls 2 make changes to the base game or something?Some minor new content was added to various areas.
>>2995927The list is "serious" but jokingly exaggerated as you obviously don't need anything to "understand" bs, rather it's just to get the referencesAnd even for the references, it varies, for example not having read peter pan has little to no impact, while not having played dark souls or knowing nothing about wonderland \ lovecraft will make 90% of the references fly over your head
>>2995863>>2995933>Some minor new content was added to various areas.And scenes.
>>2985862My interest in this series died when Dorothy left.
What causes Kuti to disappear?
>>2996180Progress >= 10. Afaik that's the only moment she disappears from her spot if you didn't lock her in the dungeon.Go to the Beach of Grief.
how do you progress the story for DLC2? i've met the oyster, the walrus and kuti but nothing happened
>>2996239>how do you progress the story for DLC2? i've met the oyster, the walrus and kuti but nothing happenedDLC2 is the Chaos Dungeon.The characters you're describing are from DLC1, and the DLC doesn't have much of a story by itself. You can make covenants with Kuti and Wolris, unlock their scenes and Oyster's, check out the hidden room inside Hotel Poseidon and trigger an insightful scene about Grimm at 0 Sen, and that's pretty nuch it.
>>2996262i read something about kuti flooding the beach and appearing at the beach of grief, did i just hallucinate it?
What are you meant to do at the Duchess's house at low sen? I killed the Duchess and the massive cake in the basement but Red Hood is still at the bonfire.
>>2995881I didn't know one thousand and one nights was real
so her name isn't pronounced node as in lymph node?
>>2996275make babies with her then let the birdning happen
>>2995881is there anything at same level of alice in wonderland where if i dont read i will miss a lot?
I haven't read Alice in the Wonderland or played Dark Souls
>>2996717they are both unironically good ways to pass some time
>>2996512No, but Igyoukyo is recommended because it's Toro's other major project
>vx ace rtp is empty except for an installerand dropped
>>2996275>>2996275>did i just hallucinate it?No. I actually talked about it above myself.Go to the beach at Progress 10.>>2996509You actually don't even need to meet her formally. She'll be there regardless. You just have to go there at Progress >= 10, that's all.Keep in mind that BS2 already starts at the 65th cycle, so it's likely Kuti and Grimm already know each other even if Grimm doesn't remember due to the mindfuckery.>>2996793The RTP IS an installer.The files are installed with an installer.Suit yourself though Anon.
>>2996855incorrect, she won't be there if you never met her and made children
>>2996859Incorrect, she will.The only conditions for her not appearing at the ruined Beach of Grief are the Switches 554 or 555 being enabled.Said Switches are activated when you kill Kuti (554) or when you put her in the dungeon (555).
>>2996890have an epic mspaint then
>>2996892Even more epic .gif of the game's code which anyone can check using RPG Maker VX Ace.Perhaps your save is bugged, but it is what it is.Kuti will always be there at the Beach of Grief on Progress 10, unless either of the 2 aforementioned conditions are met.The text for the Switches 554 and 555 is "クティ殺害" and "クティ監禁" respectively.Feel free to Google or DeepL translate them if you can't read Japanese.
>>2996900streamable.com/xojjbcbro fuck off with your switches, just try it yourself in-game, it doesn't take more than 20 minutes, if you never make children with kuti she will stay in the deep seasubmit a bug report to the bunny in the wall, what do you want from me
Honestly Kuti being there regardless makes no sense, ignoring triggers and bugged saves and builds and what have youOn a story level, her being there with no meeting makes no sense 'cause in the flooded beach she talks as if she knew you already (saying she came to land specifically for you) and your character goes along with it rather than asking "who are you even?"On a gameplay level, it would be absurd for the dev to lock out players of a whole dlc just because didn't clear it up asap or they left Jubjub alive, the disappearance of the standard covenants is already enough punishmentNot to mention, imagine some players triggering their 10th progress with the Deep Sea Knight and going at the bonfire to rest&save, their reward for completling the dlc being an empty palace and a ruined area with a new character that, not only somehow knew them already, but could only be killedMakes perfect sense that the dev would add an additional trigger to the madness (making children) compared to other covenants
what should I draw ( I'm super good at drawing, promise)
>>2996935draw fluffy with a very strong body carrying your girl of choiceI will draw too and I'm also very good I promise
>>2996935Draw all the bird girls being cute together
>>2996942I propose the Little Mermaid, she's very not fluffy.
>>2996955I drew another non-fluffy girl as an example, anon that is super good at drawing should draw little mermaid
Are the nurses appearing because I am hollow or because I pulled down the lever?
>>2996979will I see the world differently when I'm hollow or only with low sen? I've been going back on the save everytime I die for now so I haven't done any exploring while hollow
>>2996982only sen, being hollow is just for invaders&dream spirit summoning, i don't think there's any reason to be hollow except if you really want to avoid invaders
>>2996983thank you, I will keep savescumming
is there anything I can do to get her? Should I come here later?
>>2997007for some reason i remember having more dialogue options in this scene, but maybe i'm just mixing it with another onein any case, you can't really do anything, no
>>2997013after choosing that she asks you if you can go on by yourself and you have two choices. She has a different answer for both but it doesn't change the result
Am I missing something for unlocking the hidden routes? I got leaf's ring and picked up all of Alice's memories. I met Red Hood at more than 10 bonfires but I don't get the option to cancel my choice at the beginning of the next cycle. The only thing I can think of is that Red Hood only disappeared from some bonfires but remained at others.
>>2997028seems you've fell for it as well, a common mistake because of how it's worded in the hintsthere's no option to cancelyou actually need to PRESS cancel, as in X
>>2997031I tried that as well but it didn't work. I'm not sure where I fucked up.
>>2997039only other things that come up to mind are:are you sure you got all six balls of fire\ alice memories?did you try meeting red hood at the terrible tragic hotel? it shouldn't be a requirement but sometimes it gets listed as such
>>2997041>Six balls of fireI went and checked every location and none of them are there. I can't remember the exact location of the one in Oxward Academy but I'm 90% sure I got it since I ran around and couldn't find anything.>terrible tragic hotelNo I haven't. I'll check that out tomorrow.
>>2997049it's a hidden door from the right of the entrance, becomes more noticeable at 0 sen
>>2997049ox ward one is in the secret room, you may have missed it?
>>2997041Lol, i remember a friend of mine mistaking "Alice memories" to mean the hscenes (since you can get 6 of them as well)Fun times were had when i then mentioned "balls of fire" and him realizing the truth
>>2997052>>2997054Already had the one from the secret room.
>>2997064Then if you're 100% sure to have gotten the other 5 i'm definitely out of ideas outside of the hotelMaybe try sharing your save? I dunnoThe last thing i could come up with is that maybe you didn't meet RRH at 0 progress at Lutwidge's Mirror, but i think that's mandatory for her to appear everywhere else so that couldn't be
>>2997067>RRH at 0 progress at Lutwidge's MirrorDoes killing the man eating bunny cause progression? I'll try the hotel thing tomorrow and if that fails I'll just start a new cycle or make a new character altogether.
>>2997071meeting her after the headhunting beast is perfectly fine (dare i say it's the intended natural progression), but of course you have to be at 0 senif you go there after progressing absolutely nothing happens (even holmes isn't there anymore)
>>2997074I ended up saying fuck it and loading up my save to go to the terrible tragic hotel. RH isn't even there. Seems like this run is a bust.
I haven't seen Red Hood in any bonfires, only the cat
>>2997083RRH at the hotel only appears at 100 sen, since you need to trigger the cutscene
>>2997085She only appears if you have 0 sen, and only if you've met her at the Lutwidge Town Mirror
>>2997087Triggered the cutscene but it still doesn't seem to be working. Is there an order to see RH in for my next run? I'd rather not have to repeat this shit again.
>>2996892It's funny, but I recently noticed that Sho wasn't desactivated in the Chaos Dungeon, I dunno why.
>>2997102There's no order after the Lutwidge Mirror one
>>2996942>>2996943ahaha you've fallen for my ruse I already knew what I wanted to draw. Look at my wife's cute feet. https://files.catbox.moe/be8m0o.jpgWould this shit get me banned on a blue board?moar requests I can ignore, please
>>2997147Very cute feet anon, I like it>spoilerNo, not even if the janny who sees it woke up in the wrong side of the bedYou should draw Elma reading yaoi, we need more of that.
>>2997147Do footfags really
>>2997147The main heroine is always cute.
>>2997067Does the cutscene where you have a mental breakdown thinking she's Alice and rape her have any impact? That's the only thing that comes to mind.
>>2997147Damn cheeky fairy I'm gonna punish you for that
Where exactly can I find Griffin in Red Castle?
is there a way to deposit souls in bs2?
Bill decided that he would stop being a faggot lizard and start working out and building muscle.>Next time... Anon won't beat me... It will be... my turn...
>>2997738Nobody can beat the fairy.
Any particular characters you'd like to appear in BS3? I think Nausicaä would be a great choice
I've been meaning to replay BS2, but I stopped after DLC1 (Kuti&co). The dlsite page says DLC3 is still pending. Has it been translated elsewhere or I'm good with the dlsite eng download?
HOLY SHIT THE DODO IS HUGE
>>2997808DLC3 and BS2 as a whole has been complete and translated for a while. You can play the complete game in English now
Do I need to start a new cycle after getting ending G to play DLC3? The door to Mabel's place won't open.
>>2997975It unlocks on making progress.
>>2998044What sort of stats do I want before hopping in? I got raped by the winter witch.
>>2998070not stats but itemsGet the useful spells, upgrade your weapons, get your armor and rings ready
Should I not have met alice before advancing to Lutwidge Town? The world feels too open, I don't know what to do
>>2998086>The world feels too open, I don't know what to doExplore and experiment. You're probably going to fuck up the first time, don't worry about it. BS2 expects the player to cycle a few times.
>>2998082What rings and spells would you recommend? I've fully upgraded the weapons I use.
>>2997629no, that's at the brothel in upper lutwidge,that cutscene is the one that appears at the terrible tragic hotel in passenger ship atlantica
>>2997671She's right outside of the throne room.You had to meet her at Tenniel Bridge, the Serpent God's Altar and the eastern area of the Garden of Hearts first though.
>>2998086>Should I not have met alice before advancing to Lutwidge Town?It doesn't matter if you do.Technically speaking, it's a good thing to do if you intend to unlock all the scenes manually instead of cheating your way through.I always start my first 3 runs by unlocking the 3 Alices scenes in Spore Forest, lel.

Just starting the second game. I assume that the starting 'class' doesn't matter long-term, but is there anything I should know regarding initial performance or difficulty getting their equip later?And most directly: Is Speed still the god stat for most situations?
>>2998493there's a hard speed cap (that i forgot the exact number but wasn't actually that high), and once you hit that point you'll basically be evenly trading turns or maybe lap them once or twice compared to BS1. You can also find the gear of the other classes from corpses placed around the map, and I think all of them can be grabbed without fighting a single boss
DUDEcan I just keep smoking?
>>2998497Thanks, good to know. Guess I'll just go with gut feeling and aesthetics on this one.
>>2998501and by that you mean you will get fluffy right
>>2998499 In real life? No, it's bad for you. In vidya? Sure, what's the worst that can happen?
>>2998499I want to strap shisha to a bed and detox her by force

>>2997147>>2997632WAIT, DRAW ANON WHO DID THIS AND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL NODE IMAGE!You are still around?If so, FUCK, I'm sorry about the bitchasscunt Angel you asked me to draw... half a year ago. I think I drew a Grimm instead and you were cool with that, but I've been looking at this bitch's WIP in my gallery for so long that I'd given up. Trying an entirely new style approach, and having no idea how to go about it was agonizing. I'll see if I can buckle up and actually finish it for you within the next thread. So check in at least once if you can, to call me a faggot for not delivering.Also, even if Leaf's a bitch, thank you for giving us footfags something. Unicorn's greatest sin was denying us the looking-at-garbage-footjob.
so I finally played BS1 and I'm at the end now, got end B and all but everything just reverts to the state before the final bosshow the fuck do I escape the cycle, it said something about "complete library" but what fucking library is that? I must have missed something, what is it?

how do you kill no face in the grand guignol? I can't burst it down fast enough
>>2999318 have God's angels and frumious wrath maxed out
>>2998497>hard speed capI've been wasting souls all this time.
>>2989367Leaf is objectively the best girl, leaving aside the fact that without her BS wouldn't exist, she was one of the reasons why BS was a success, her simple but effective design makes her adorable without being a coomerbait, and neither is she set in the story to be a waifubait like red along with her playful but reliable personality made her the most popular girl before the release of BSII, even though she has almost no appearances in BSII she is still one of the most popular girls and her appearances besides being fun are always important to the story making them not useless but also reinforcing her importance in the games.
>>2999356>Leaf is objectively best girl because uhh I like her and her design is marketable???

>>2999334that won the fight. thanks
How does buff duration work? Requiem says it has two turns left then disappears and gets me killed as soon as my turn ends.
>>2999572exactly like that example for some reason, any buffs that have 2 left on them will just end after that turn because idk
How am I meant to beat Florence? I keep losing at the beginning of the second phase.
>>2999434>unique and captivating personalityshe is a carbon copy of Shubbie, only Shubbie is not a creatoryou blatantly lied on most points but I genuinely think you might have forgotten that one because Shub is an endgame character
Is there anything I can do if I'm at endgame of BS1 and still have Jeanne's ashes? I can't dispose of them to get the book, but the shaman NPC in skeleton cave isn't showing either
>>2999749if the shaman is gone then you're too late, it should be super easy for you to cycle and get back to that point thought
Is there a repository of EMMM art? Ideally the more messy line BS2 style than the somewhat cleaner BS1 style? I'm trying to train some AI on his art style.
>>2999898Oh and to clarify, I would prefer non-H art.
>>2999898>>2999909kill yourself, seriously
>>2999936Rather not. Thanks for the suggestion though.
>>2999898>EMMM style art gen with LLaMA langauge model are you trying to bring Leaf into realspace! ARE YOU MAD?!?!?
>>2999898Why don't you unzip the file "game.rgss3a"? Then you would have the original artwork>>2999936:^)>>2999983>bring Leaf into realspaceHoly based

Man, the pistol seems way more useful than any shield I've found so far. Gun Break is so fucking handy, even considering the cooldown.
>>3000188People have a kneejerk reaction to AI generation nowadays. I can't really blame them, considering the vast majority of outspoken proponents of the tech do their best to sound as retarded and obnoxious as possible, plus there's plenty that actively act malicious for one bullshit reason or another then unleash truly phenomenal mental gymnastics to 'justify' their actions. But it does have the unfortunate effect of piling shit on people who just want to have some fun with it.
>>3000203Buy watches and unleash the power
>>3000203Gun Break is extremely powerful early on, but endgame shields are better.
I'm shamefully reading alice in wonderland for the first time and carroll sure had a way with words. I fucking love his poems, and I wish I could wrap my brain around how he makes them so good. My head is probably too far gone from reading shitty wns to recover.
>>3000231Never too late. Read enough and you'll get used to it, then what makes it work will click.
>>3000231Here you are, rewarded with your own thimble
I'm unclear, what does Luck even do in the second game? Crit chance? Item drops? Both? Neither?
>>3000265Neither. Affects ailment/debuff inflicts, both outgoing and incoming. Read hints.txt some time.
>>2992060Name one major fight in any game where the win condition isn’t to deal damage, or render the enemy capable of receiving damage. Bonus if it isn’t games that force the player to run away like a fucking coward even though they beat the challenge easily and would have been able to kill the enemy with ease if not for the retarded plot. Also, any game that can be made more interesting with optional content such as sl1 doesn’t count. Is there anything more to make the requirements equally as retarded as yours?
>>3000265>>3000269I wish games would say what Luck does, or call it something else.
>>3000192>>3000119>>3000082>>2999898Can you make lost kitten edit but AI generated prickett
How DOES one pull off SL1, exactly? I made an attempt and utterly stalled out a few bosses in, because everything felt like a walking stat check.
>>3000756you simply can't feel like a hero in SL1, at least without spending at least one or two cycles crawling like a roach and baiting for lucky criticals to farm either ores to upgrade or candy to trade with pickle peeonce you have your black goat rings and +10 weapons you can start a new cycle and just play as usual
>>3000756You would also be amazed how much loot and gear you can get without having fought a single boss. Gear and skills are 100% your bread and butter for SL1, and getting a bonus turn item sooner or later. Don't forget the free early candy stash in town, as Black Goat Rings will also be super important as you go to meet certain stat checks.
I got all the endings up to G, but I hear there's at least one more. I haven't touched the chaos dungeon yet and the only DLC I've done is the deep sea one, how do I do the rest of the DLCs or endings and does it have to be before or after the NG+ Crystal.
>>3000904After you're done with G, go to the regular dungeon and talk with kot there. Then, go to Oxward academy to talk with the doll there. They'll both give you hints how to access ending HBut before you go into H, do Chaos Dungeon up to floor 180 or so. You'll know when you're finished, you'll get a massive lore dump
>>3000934Thanks anon, are those hints also related to accessing the new DLC areas or strictly just the ending?
>>3000949BothChaos Dungeon = DLC2Ending H = DLC3Also, if you haven't done so yet, fight the first boss (Headhunting Rabbit) with a Vorpal Blade +10
