I actully liked it but the last part of the story fell under the same JRPGs cliches and tropes that the story trayed so hard to avoid during the first 2/3 of the game

It's specific to Fallout 4, but the inability of your character to grasp that more time had passed after they were obviously refrozen was fucking retarded. All the shit they did to obfuscate that fact was just grating.

I can easily forgive Chrono Trigger since they revealed Lavos pretty early on. The problem is mostly with games that introduce a completely new enemy right at the end.

However, why on earth was everyone so chill about Magus? That part was bothersome.

Make sure you teach yourself how decks properly work like not using clashing elements in the same turn (say, Fire and Water cards). Also make sure you find the thing that allow you to 'level' your decks or however it works. Been years since I've played it.

Character joins your party. Has a whole bunch of useful skills and is generally a pretty good member.
So naturally either:

1. For some contrived reason he/she's taken out and can't be used later in the game where it would be helpful.
2. Flat out doesn't stay with your party for whatever reason, even if his/her help would be greatly appreciated against bosses,
3. Is in fact a villain all along.(I'm looking at you SRW. Ingram, Levin, Advent. Is it so much to ask to have an ally character who is on the fucking level with you?)
