What is the subtlest plot device in any video game??
What I mean by subtle is: an event foreshadowed or alluded to that the game otherwise gives no context about but leaves for the player to gather?
Example: Yugi vs Strings
When Kaiba later throws Yugi the card Fiend Sanctuary to use again Marik, he does so because he intended to use it against Yugi with Multiply and a card that would make him draw. But he didn't draw the components or Yugi didn't play into his hand. That's why he monologues whether Yugi can figure out the card's true power (which he does when he uses Multiply).
In Deus Ex, there is a guy in NYC's bar that would ask you for a drink. If you offer him one, he'll thank you and proceed to spoil the entire plot of the game. But no one really takes him seriously on their first run.
Ignore the obnoxious voice of the game playing.
Thanks! Definitely gonna keep this in mind when I play this game for the first time. To avoid that is.
The main theme of the first Silent Hill is that almost everything you see is a materialization of Alessa's fears. In the Midwich Elementary school, there's a book you come across that talks about a hunter fighting a lizard, this book foreshadows a boss you're soon going to fight and how to defeat it.
One I can think of is in the Persona 4 Arena duology where the first game teases the main villain with the same powers as the one from Persona 2 but in the end it was just an OC which isn't surprising since Atlus loves to pretend anything predating 3 doesn't exist.
>Tfw the boys arrive just in time
You do, that's the entire last season since they realized they couldn't keep the show going any longer. Everybody hated the ending, it was fantastic.
Guess who turned out to be dead all along.
Osiris and the other Egyptian Gods have many abilities, some anime exclusive.
The one that you see are:
>The ATK and DEF is the number of cards held by the Duelist x 1000.
>When an opponent summons a monster, this card attacks that monster immediately, reducing that monster's ATK or DEF by 2000, depending on if it is in Attack or Defense Position. If that monster's ATK or DEF is 2000 or less it is destroyed.
Did you get yours?
They actually printed them, the absolute madman!
monster reborn will return blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
why the fuck do they spend so much time dialoguing what the fuck will happen. they waste so much animation frames just fucking holding our hands like we're retarded kids
Because Battle City was when they actually started using the game's rules.
Either way, more than half of the people who watch Yu-Gi-Oh don't know shit about the game so they need some explaining about what's going on, just look at /a/rc-v general.
I preferred the original series.
The episodes were a lot more exciting and unpredictable. Attacking moons and firing turtles included, and they were amazing.
Now the episodes read like tournament logs between two people with bad decks and supernatural draw luck.
>But what if the dragons weren't dragons at all? What if they were knights!
Pegasus what the fuck.
