    What's the context for the Game Grumps intro being different now and having "Fatality" at the end? Was this an April Fools thing they just kept around.

    Also, regarding Danganronpa, it just now hit me how the murders are more or less realistic but the executions are ridiculously over the top and fantastical. I wonder if there's some deeper meaning for that or not.

    Been wondering that as well. I figured it was just a weird thing they were doing.

    And I dunno, I think it's just the series being weird :P

    It's related to the Youtuber boxing match Arin's doing against Harley from Epic Meal Time. Mild smack talk, I guess?

    Calling a few shots here.

    I think (hope) Soda is the traitor.

    I think that this whole thing if a matrix type deal or something because the first game was VERY explicit about how Monokuma was just a robot being controlled by another person. And yet here...it's treating Monomi and Monokuma as if they are actual creatures, and Monomi's "magic wand" bullshit is sus as fuck. That or it's an isekai.

    And as for who killed the best boy, I am thinking it's likely he either isn't dead somehow or it was a 'murder on the orient express' type thing where he got stabbed by multiple people to implicate everyone except you in the crime.


    Basically I think that there is some explanation for the 'magical realism' of the place that somehow is too anime even for DGR

    I will say, when you know some big thing about this game before the reveal, you become painfully aware of how much the game communicates it to you.

    It’s actually really clever writing, all the actual bad writing, bad translations, and cheesy prose aside.

    Yeah, there's some moments and cases of the series that I think are really, really well imagined and written. But having said that, you can't just ignore the many, many moments that are very poorly written. Hell, the translation of DGR2 in particular has an absolute ton of mistakes.

    Oh, there's one upcoming reveal that upon multiple re-watchings is *amazingly* setup since the start. Like, you catch so many little things that you don't notice the first time through, but in context with the reveal take on a whole new dimension. Every time I watch through this game I catch new things that are like "Ohhhh, that's funny they said that knowing what I know." (I'll elaborate more after the trial is over and it's not a big spoiler :3)

    I wouldn't say it's the translation. The translation/localization is actually pretty great. It's the proof-reading. The game is just riddled with unacceptable typos. I'm honestly shocked they haven't corrected any of them in the many ports/etc they've done (haven't played on Switch but I assume they're all there too). Especially when this is a game that could easily just be patched to fix that stuff if they wanted (not like this is on some old format where you can't patch things). I believe Danganronpa 2 is the worst of it, but all three games have typos like this. The most offensive ones I find are when they list the wrong speaker in the dialog box (like it's clear someone else is saying the line but it will write Hajime there)

    I'm fairly certain this was spoiled for me as well.

    What's keeping me going is how it's going to go down (the details in game AND their reaction) on their playthrough like 2 weeks from now, since I'm pretty sure we won't get to it next week

    Yeah, it's hard to say if they're going to make it through the whole trial this coming weekend. Two episodes might be enough but it might take three. I guess it depends on how long they wanna go with each episode.

    Part 2 of "In Space with Markiplier" is now out, in which NSP gets a brief musical number.
    hljw67z5rq99.png

    Its a choose-your-own-adventure type thing where at the end of each video you make a choice which leads to the next. I guess I must have misheard when I said there are "100+ endings", it must have been "100+ possible paths" because there's ultimately only one actual ending that I've found so far, everything else just takes you down a different path to the same place or loops around to the start again. The NSP musical scene is down an optional path though, so its very possible to miss it. If you just want to see the "song" itself its in this part at about 50 seconds in:

    It probably won't make a lot of sense out of context, but to be honest it doesn't make much more sense in context either (the context is that the stability of the universe is breaking down due to wormhole shenanigans and you're being rapidly shifted through alternate dimensions). But its nice to see our boys got to have fun playing dress up!

    I'm so very curious to see what part of Elden Ring finally stonewalls Arin into finally realizing how deep a hole he's digging for himself.

    God, I wouldn't have this playthrough ANY other way!

    Anyone else get slightly annoyed the more they called the sour cream onions? Like they read the conversation where it said exactly what they were catching, but immediately called it onions and continuously did so from there. I’m willing to bet they never catch it either.

    Sour cream and onion chips are an extremely popular flavor in NA, their brains might be doing a thing.

    Ohh in the latest Elden Ring video they had a new Arin intro voice! This is the most exciting thing I've heard all day.

  • NitsuaNitsua Gloucester, VARegistered User regular
    I did notice that he changed the ‘next time on game grumps’. Though there’s also Fatality added to the intro as well now. Could very well be related.

    I know you said it was spoiled for you, but I can't get it out of my head that the killer is
    Chiaki? But I don't know, I haven't seen all the episodes of DGR2 and I know there's always that not-who-you-expect element to the story, but in the weird internal logic of my brain it makes sense

    Also this Taco Tom game is amazing

    Ah it sounds like we aren't going to see the full Elden Ring playthrough. Arin said he's going to call it at Radahn. I mean I guess I see the point but they've been playing Danganropa 2 for an eternity so I'm not sure why it's a problem for ER.

    Aw. My guess is that he realized that he didn’t quite have the knowledge/experience/skill to bulldoze the game like he wanted to, and the time and effort needed to fix that issue aren’t in the cards for him.

    So, from listening to them today and looking on their Reddit channel, this is why the intro is different and Arin’s been training: https://thecreatorclash.com/

    He’s having a boxing match this weekend (a number of other content creators are as well) and the proceeds go to charity. I don’t think I’ll watch it live, but I look forward to hearing them talk about it.

    It might be a viewership thing, if the episodes are not getting the views they wanted (I have no idea how well they're doing :P)

    (I'll be perfectly honest, I haven't been watching them myself... for whatever reason I seem to be the only person on the planet with little interest in Elden Ring)

    I've been behind for the opposite reason. I don't want to get spoiled for the game as I play it. Whenever they got to a new zone I haven't reached yet, I hard stopped watching until I got ahead again.
