Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm about 15 hours in and still on my first playthrough

    Granted, this was because I spent a long time running around doing sidequests because I didn't think this game had fast travel in it. I was pretty upset when that was finally turned on.

    what is this dragon quest heroes game

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO ROLLING STAAAAAAAAAAAAART Registered User regular
    it's a dynasty warriors game with a dragon quest skin, like hyrule warriors was a dynasty warriors game with a zelda skin

    IIRC the RPG mechanics in DQ Heroes are a bit more in depth than your average Dynasty Warriors game.

    Went ahead and ordered Drakengard 3 since I'm having so much fun with Nier Automata. I need more of Yoko Taro's crazy bullshit in my life.

    that's 30$ more than drakengard 3 is worth

    Historically, Yoko Taro makes bad games that are very interesting

    I didn't really like Drakengard 3, and Platinum's mechanical work on Automata makes all of the previous Yoko Taro games' gameplay pale by comparison IMO. The degree to which Drakengard 3 is horny and gory also made me kind of uncomfortable. I much prefer the nier/automata less gory and slightly less horny Yoko Taro aesthetic.

  • StiltsStilts Machinist "Don't forget to thank me if this works."Registered User regular
    Drakengard 3 will always hold a special place in my heart just because of Zero.

    She is very deliberately horny and violent, because she serves as a mirror of the male power fantasy. She is Yoko Taro's commentary on Kratos, to the point where the male characters are literally sex objects.

    I always love when nerds get mad about Bioware being "SJW," because some of the stuff Yoko Taro does is more radical. But those type of people are too dumb to critically analyze their media, so it just flies right over their heads.

    I would give Drakengard 3 another shot if I could play a version that is at least locked to 30fps. Ideally 60.

    I'm not a performance/resolution stickler, I just couldn't handle how poorly it ran.

    To be fair, I did find it mostly enjoyable to play. Fairly repetitive, yes, but I only found it frustrating in the back third. And the final final boss is garbage that I never beat.

    It's so anime. My god. So anime. I don't really mind it, though I do feel like I should find some kind of guide so I know what I'm doing in combat.

    I mean, food's great. It's just... unusual to see it as a common feature in JRPGs.

    Every problem that occurs in Nier is the result of someone (usually Nier himself) stubbornly refusing to consider the world from a different perspective or reflect on the consequences their actions might have on others.

    Accord is great, but there's not much to talk about with her, because her purpose is largely metatextual. She doesn't really tie into the themes of the game very well (which is fine; she's supposed to feel out of place).

    taro wanted to explore the idea of how somebody could do something so completely monstrous while feeling justified in their actions

    But that's part of what makes her so great.

    Yoko Taro delibertly pushes boundries of what you can and/or should do in video game naratives, the meta, and the 4th wall.

    Automata extends this even further.

    Finding out Kaine can understand all the shades perfectly, including the peaceful ones wanting to be left alone or the ones calling for mercy.

    And she gives no shits, happily murdering them.
