>>44659940 Ok so wait. If he's got vampire like weaknesses to the sun, why does he wear a t-shirt and no hat? And the chick who turns him the one in the dress. Yeah, she is in a DRESS that does NOT cover her legs. Or arms! Or shoulders even! Spaghetti straps are not goo at protecting you from the sun!
I watched the Best Friends Play and I thought the whole concept was retarded. Japan, you have a lot of good ideas, but you also have a lot of shit you should just not bring t light.
>>44660621 Well my family is of German stock. Only a third generation American. >>44660647 So... standing around in tightie whites and headphones blocks this critical mass? His HAIR blocks more sun then the headphones. Hell, the headphones probably don't block any!
>>44660550 I had a lot of misgivings for the game itself, but when I actually watched someone play it, it became clear to me:
It's not a game that needs internal consistency, the plot is hammered to the minimum working model for funny writing to carry the rest. The focus is letting the animators try out all sorts of wacky poses and movements, and being able to sell the stupid stuff they pull. From an experience standpoint, those animators are really reeling it in from these games.

>>44662168 Nah, the actual reason is that there's was a falling out between IF and NIS, which resulted in many of NIS employees going over to work at IF and NIS and by extension NISA canceling their partnership.
That's why NISA didn't publish the games after Victory, and why NISA doesn't appear in the games anymore, not the other way round.

Actually, that's something I want to bring up. Foreplay in a fight, I mean. In a lot of anime, and a lot of media, most people have fights where no-one is ultimately badly hurt and they're still on good terms later.
The problem is, this goes against what happens in most RPGs. Like, if there's an attractive girl you're fighting because of a misunderstanding, it feels weird when YOUR attacks involve setting her on fire, punching her so hard she loses teeth, or hacking off her arm. That tends to leave hurt feelings later.
Then there's also the question of where you can hit a woman and not make it look bad. Like, most of us are uncomfortable hitting women, and violence tends to ugly people up. What happens when I attack the sexy Sorceress and do 40 HP of damage? Remember, I'm wielding a big fuckoff axe. Did I just bury it in her gut, then smash her in the teeth with the haft?
>>44664295 >Then there's also the question of where you can hit a woman and not make it look bad. The breasts and the vagina, preferably. You can do some pretty heavy damage yet it's highly unlikely that she'll show the bruises, bleeding etc. to others.
Yeah, but those are the parts I like. I mean, if I'm doing meat damage, the meat has to come from somewhere, right? Unless she has some kind of 'magic shield' around her that's completed depleted when she reaches 0 HP, so she only suffers minor bruises and clothing loss.
Of course, female fighters and so on don't even have that excuse!

>>44664295 In JRPGs they just kind of handwave this, but in D&D, isn't this what nonlethal attacks are for? I don't tend to see people do sparring or rival battles with full force, there's usually too much risk of flat-out slaughtering someone if they're at low HP and you crit or something.
So the way I usually see this happening is them going ahead and eating the -4 attack penalty and it being fluffed as involving a lot of fisticuffs, or maybe just a lot of parrying and feints and the finishing 'blow' being someone distinctly getting the upper hand and stopping just before delivering what could have been a fatal blow, or knocking their weapon away, getting the flat of their blade to the back of the head for a knockout, or whatever you'd like.
This shit is way too /a/. At least try to give it a /tg/-relevant spin instead of just wanking over fanservice anime. >>44663820 Not only retarded as hell, one of the first two girls just vanishes between scenes. Not OK.
Yeah, but in most fights, you're generally trying to kill someone. I have NEVER, EVER seen anyone use non-lethal attacks.
What's especially funny is when you consider something like Exalted, which is supposed to be the most anime game ever. It isn't, actually: If you're using Supernatural Martial Arts and bust out Infernal Monster Style, one of your moves involves grabbing your opponent and ripping his arm off. (Alternatively, you can rend his testicles or rip a girl's womb out.)
Yeah, that'd go over well. You can have a friendly conversation over how it's traditional to have a fistfight before teaming up, after I mutilated your girlfriend's genitals. This isn't hyperbole, by the way: You can actually do this with that specific Charm.
> The victim suffers a single level of unsoakable lethal damage and one crippling amputation injury of the Infernal’s choice, examples of which may be found on page 152 of Exalted. If these options aren’t brutal enough, the Infernal might rend an enemy’s genitals, taking away his or her ability to enjoy sex or procreate and messily terminating any existing pregnancy in the process. Regardless, the severed organ remains in the Infernal’s grip. In case it comes up, a dismembered human-sized limb may be used with the same statistics as a club as an in-style improvised weapon.
>>44666890 Well, the example used involved a fight over a misunderstanding, so I was going off the assumption of a slightly more anime-themed game in the first place.
But if your kind of games are always fight-to-kill and never use nonlethal ever, then maybe you just aren't playing the kind of game where that's a thing. I've had D&D games that were serious enough and I wouldn't call them anime, but still had some nonlethal chances here and there.
>>44666890 Jesus Christ. I'm not familiar with Exalted, but this sounds like the kind of shit I would expect to see featured in FATAL. What's the excuse to include specific rules for this in a role playing game this time. Edge. "Realism". The author's horrible fetishes. Or all of the above?
>>44667056 >If these options aren’t brutal enough, the Infernal might rend an enemy’s genitals, taking away his or her ability >to enjoy sex or procreate and messily terminating any existing pregnancy in the process.
>>44666890 >What's especially funny is when you consider something like Exalted, which is supposed to be the most anime game ever. It isn't, actually
Basically yeah, throwing in a lot of martial arts, crazy sword powers, sex and skimpy outfits isn't exactly a slam dunk for an anime game, it just has some of those as an inspiration to try and do it's own thing I guess.
>>44667145 >>44667151 There was a pretty telling article on SA about Exalted and their edgy rape spells and also comic about a child being raped and turned into a horrible screaming abomination.
I liked the Exalted wanted to get the hell away from Tolkien fantasy and do something original, but it's so fucking edgy I can't even take it seriously.
>>44663476 >without returning the towel that he held around his hips >Not him "innocently" flirting with the policewoman he's giving his statement too >Not him only taking the towel after they insist he does, smirking all the while as he sees their eyes follow the curve of his supple thighs >Not him slowly wrapping it around his waist, adjusting and readusting it giving everyone a show as he tries to fit the too small towel around him >Not the towel sliding down everyone now and then during the interview, him "not noticing" until it leaves very little to the imagination >Not him giving it to the newscaster as a souvenir once the interview is over >Not him walking off for bit, giving his hips a little shake all the while before glancing over his shoulders to make sure the newscaster's eyes are following his ass
>>44667145 2E Infernals was simultaneously the best and worst exalted book of 2nd Edition, because there were two separate teams who barely interacted with each other writing the book. The first group basically crammed in as much edgelord shit as possible to the point where the consensus outright was "ignore all of these sections" while the second team managed to write a really compelling game about morally gray demonic rock-stars trying to get around their incompetent cthonic overlords.
So it occupies kind of a funny place for Exalted fans, but at least, looking at the 3E Core book they seem to have learned their lesson?
It's the fighting style of the Infernals, who are demon-tainted Exalted chosen by - basically - mad and bitter gods. While most Exalted are chosen for heroism, Infernals are picked from people who fail their chance at heroism. Though this isn't universal, most Infernals have one defining quality: Spite, and a need for revenge on the world that wronged them. It doesn't help that they're driven by demons, too. (It's more complicated than that, but this is a pretty concise summary.)
Their personal Martial Art, Infernal Monster Style, is about being the Incredible Hulk and ripping people to pieces. So basically Ultimate Hulk.
