I'm surprised nobody brought this thing up.


Create-a-Character: What Do You Do?

08 August 2017 - 04:15 PM

So you buy an RPG and they toss you right into a create-a-character screen. What kind of character do you create?

- Do you try to make an approximation of yourself? Try to stitch together the closest version of you that's possible with what's there and give them your name?

- Do you like to make a character of the opposite gender?

- Do you try to make the coolest guy/gal possible and make them look like a total badass?

- If there are races outside of just "Human," do you prefer to create a creature instead?

I'm curious to know what you all do when faced with a character creator.

eal's Kingdom Hearts: m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) - A Fragmentary Playthru

So I picked up the HD collection and thought it'd be fun to actually play them instead of just posting that one video every time the topic comes up, though I will continue to do so, don't get me wrong.

Just started Kingdom Hearts 1. Landed myself in Traverse Town. Hopefully combat goes beyond "press x to win."

Also, dunno why I posted this in the non-RPG section, but let's just go with it.

How 'Bout that ConBravo 2017 Logo

Maybe it's just me or does that look like they're trying to go for something like the Dragon Quest logo?

Yangus Sucks

28 June 2017 - 02:32 PM

Here. We. Go.

Hey, you know what sucks almost as much as a terrible character? A good character that just can't be left alone. Yangus is a pretty cool dude. Not the best character in fiction, but I like him well enough. He's got personality, charm, he's a reliable fighter, and his backstory is interesting. He might not be my ideal character, but if I were to describe him in Shrek terms, I'd say he has layers, much like an onion, and those layers are well explored (unlike a certain pilgrim).

And it's as if they realized this and won't stop rubbing his red-spotted underwear in our faces. "You like Yangus? How about we make a spin-off game about him, throw him in some Fortune Street games, make him a playable character in both Heroes games, and just generally never stop making sure you know we made an interesting character for once."

Look, let's be real. Dragon Quest games don't have interesting characters. At least not for the most part. The odd character here and there. But that's fine because that's not what we're here for. So when we get a character that has some depth or a following of some kind, it's as if we have to be constantly reminded of it. No, I will not pat you on the back for doing something as basic as writing a good character just because I don't expect it from you. Stop ramming him down our throats ([insert your innuendo here]).
