Buddy murdered him in the end of joyful with her teenage angst.
Even if she was the final female, she acted like a real cunt.

The Joyful is more of an epilogue than a flat out sequel, you can finish it in a few hours. It's pretty divisive in terms of it's plot, and you get to control a couple characters in battle (instead of over two dozen characters in painful) so the gameplay itself isn't as good as Painful.
Its DLC, not a sequel, its just an epilogue for the story, people where mostly disappointed in the game-play
Music, Character interaction and everything else was considerably on the same level or in the case of the music better than the Painful
Gary the Hot Soup will never become the champ.
Considering all the stuff that happened to her and how she's no where ready to fuck anyone because kid, it's normal that she went full edge.
I still made her hug Brad in the end, and killed no one apart the leader in the pacifist Village...Until Rando fucked off and i killed everyone else
When ever people say LISA is edgy, I agree with them, most time people call a game edgy, its in games where the characters dont really have anything to complain about,
In Post Apocalypse settings, of course things are going to be considered edgy,
Buddys actually is pretty fitting and acceptable as a edgelord.
Are you a __ years old female with everyone in the world trying to rape you?
are you tumblr anon?
I was going more on the whole idea of a fan-game of you playing as sticky defecting from Brad and helping the Rando Army, In Joyful it reveals that Sticky, Rick and Cheeks know Randos
is brads son,and when you get ambushed by Buzzo's men, you see Rando's army and sticky run towards Buzzos men and begin fighting them off-screen. There is a reason Sticky is Dingalings favorite character.
I thought this was kind of a good theory on Buddy's mind.
http://avunvain.tumblr.com/post/135964368139/blessed-are-the-warmongers-lisa-thoughts Yeah yeah, I know it's tumblr, but I saw it in between trawling for new fanart and I thought it was a good read.
I'd rather have improved sprites that resemble the official art work much better
Also include the planned party member side quests that were cut due to time
Rick, Sticky and Cheeks are really good persons.
Even Buddy still consider them her uncles.
Buzzo is a sore loser
>tfw Sticky went back to try stop brad before he could reach the Rando army by himself
Sticky was doing this for Buddy
Brad was doing this for Lisa
>Also include the planned party member side quests that were cut due to time
This is the main thing I want, I love the party members in LISA but most of them barely say or do anything plot-wise compared to the Hint Lord or Nern.
>Brad was doing this for Lisa
Made even more evident by the fact that Mutant Brad at the end of Painful calls out for Lisa rather than Buddy. Really powerful moment. On a subconscious level, probably even a conscious one, Brad's obsession with ensuring Buddy's safety was constantly informed by his guilt over Lisa's death. Dingaling manages to deal with the concept of trauma so well.
I don't think there's any solid examples, just inference like Yazan saying he wants to find the Cat Haven. Dingaling said he planned on including a unique quest for each party member but plans fell through.
Oh hello there! My name is Nern. I'm considered the greatest historian of our time... I've gathered a wealth of knowledge about Olathe and what happened here. Many tales... Would you like to hear? Hmm... I wish you were more enthusiastic... Oh well, I'll tell you anyway. Let's see.... Oh right! It all started with what I like to call, THE FLASH. I was sitting with my wife, god rest her soul, sipping on sweet lemon tea. I believe it was homemade by my sweet wife, God rest her soul. Or wait... Maybe she bought it from the store in a bottle. You know, like a plastic bottle? Well hold on now, that would be ridiculous to buy a bottle of sweet lemon tea, then transfer the contents into a glass. Why not just drink it from the bottle? I guess maybe so she could put ice in the glass? But then again, making tea homemade would be just as time consuming, if not more! That sneaky bitch... Anyway, I'll save that story for later! So, I'm sitting on my porch drinking sweet lemon tea. From a glass of course, ho ho! When suddenly... A great strangeness fills my body... Something was wrong... I've lived many years, and I've never felt something like this before. Do you know what it was? Yup! It was my rocking chair! That wooden son of a gun stopped rocking! So I looked down and realized a little rock had gotten caught beneath my chair! A rock under my rocking chair! What a day! I decided it was time for bed, I had had a little bit too much excitement for one day! Hoho! I slid into my jammies, brushed my teeth, and said my prayers.
I'd rather have the party members' levels mirror Brad's than each character have his own number. I like to switch among them on a whim while using everyone but absolutely hate level disparity, so I end up always using the ones with less level and never get to use guys who come later like Buffalo van Dyke.
>I'd rather have the party members' levels mirror Brad's than each character have his own number
I do believe there is a rpg that does it bit I can't remember which one.
You know, some rpg tropes come directly from old ass rpgs, games made to be challenging and hard on purpose. Developers used those tropes, like the ones you listed, to make the game last longer and to offer some kind of challenge to the player. Of course I am talking about gen 3 and 4 games.
Many modern rpgs refuse to leave these tropes behind, for many reasons, like trying not to alienate old rpg fans.
My guess is that since rpgs need a story more than any other genre, devs focused more on plotlines and characters rather than made the rpgs' gameplay evolve with the times.
My two cents blogpost.
As I was climbing into bed I noticed my wife, God rest her soul, brushing her hair in the bathroom. As I peered across the hall my body swelled up with emotion...
"Why can't I be married to an attractive woman?"
"Is it me?"
"My bank account?"
I'm a tall guy, I workout forty minutes a week... Is that not enough? Now my neighbor at the time, Tom Forknight, was very short. His wife, Karen Forknight-Plateburger... Yeah, one of THOSE women. Well, she was more attractive than my wife. I'd say she was a soft six, whereas my wife was a hard four. What's the deal? I thought women liked tall men? Why was Karen with him? Anyway my horse of a wife, God rest her soul, crawled into bed next to me. She decided to leave the bedside light on so she could read her book. It was one of her romance novels again... Give me a break... As if I don't already feel inadequate enough... Not only do I have to compete with Tom, now I have to deal with these fictional hunks! Ay yai yai! At this point I had already suppressed the urges of intimacy, I rolled over and tried to sleep. Her bedside light was only of minor annoyance. I was able to drift off... Then I woke up to a big flash of light. That's about it. I can tell by the way you're walking away that you don't want to leave... If you really want to hear another story I'll tell you. Once upon a hot summer night. Sometime in July... Was it July? My local grocery store sells really good eggs in July. I don't know why. Do chickens operate better in heat? Fireworks maybe? I don't know. I don't want to get off topic. Point is, the eggs that Summer were marvelous!
>"you're not supposed to win!"
>turns the table over and leaves crying
Pretty lame that the game is designed this way. If there is an option to fight, I expect a possible outcome for victory.
That was kind of lame. I know that Buzzo was supposed to be an immovable obstacle, but the fight was kind of unnecessary.
It should've been if you try to fight him he just makes the choice for you. Like how he cuts your arm off and takes your stuff if you ask him "Why are you doing this?"
>There has to be someone with a Joy mutant fetish in Olathe.
I think I know who.
>mfw all Big Lincoln fanart, rare as it is, is usually stupid shit
>mfw there's only like 2 good pieces of fanart for him
I hate writers that go "muh story", I know it's not fun to watch someone do a complete 180 from what you wanted but at least accommodate for them.
I loved the Joyful easy mode route, it was hilarious.
Are you trying to say you dont like my Deviant art art?
That hurts my feelings anon.
I thought this one was pretty cool.
One thing I don't like about JOYFUL is that there seems to be a distinct lack of 9,000 party members. One of my favorite moments is the betrayal of your active party and their sadness at having to fight Brad.
Thats the rule of fan-art. Some is good and some is garbage,
Who else cried bitch tears at the end of Joyful?
Seriously, that fight against Brad really got to me.
>Do Lisa in Pain mode for my first run because I'm not some pussy ass nigger
>Mfw save scumming to ensure I don't loose anyone unless it's meant saving Buddy
I gave him three shitty party members
>tfw you can't recruit Green Ranger
>tfw you can't recruit Lardy and have him spray bullets
>tfw you can't recruit Vegas and spam super cool
>tfw you can't recruit Mr Beautiful as a buffbot
>tfw you can't take the most badass members of the wasteland and break them into your obedient bitches after a good asskicking
>you can't have them
randomly attempt to betray you and become the leader of your gang as campfire events
or have Buddy attack them at the end of the story in a joy induced fit of paranoia, prompting some to beg for their lives, and others only too happy for an excuse to put Buddy in her place
>not save scumming and sacrificing three shit gang members.
Sorry Tiger Man.
Why would I put my ass on the line for people that might just end up turning against me for that pussy?
When Brad went alone, it's was the right thing to do even if his team came to try and kick his ass.
Would you play a painful+joyful PaperMario styled remake?
He was becoming a joy mutant and everyone realized it
No matter how loyal, joy mutants obsess over something and only get sated by bloodshed.
Every sane person would kill him.
The fact that a lot of them couldn't attack him even then shows really how loyal they were.
Terry, Shocklord, Nern and many others couldn't do it even if they knew they would die.
>Likes: hurting people, being edgy, killing, death, power, darkness, ponchos
>Dislikes: Niceness, Happiness, being protected, love, pacifists
What a lot of people don't seem to understand is that by the time of The Joyful, Buddy was supposed to be taking Joy, and this is the reason she acts as psychotic as she does. Austin didn't really do a good job of conveying this, considering that after what happened to Brad, most players wouldn't be taking it, but it seems Buddy was at least taking it when you find her on the deserted island.
All joy mutant have only one deep desire they will pursue no matter what. Some like to slack off, some defend an important tape and so on.
Brad genuinely loved Buddy,he wanted to stay with her. So it's obvious his joy mutant version would just want to stay with Buddy.
>I'm sure his Joy Mutant thing is to protect Buddy/Lisa; or maybe eat her, I don't know.
Did Joy Mutant Brad try to attack Buddy at the start of joyful? When I was playing it, he spent the whole time crying.
Who was your team until they betrayed you, Anon?
>"Fuck yes, time to kill the freaky female mutant"
>Buzzo steals the fight
>"Time to fight the trumpeteer guy's throne I guess"
>Lasts 3 turns then it turns into an unlosable story sequence
>"Mutant Buzzo, holy fuck"
>He eats himself to death immediately
what the hell was Dinga thinking?
Brad's fate at the hands of Buzzo in Painful/Joyful is just overkill
>Forced in to becoming an addict
>Even in rehabilitation he's brought back on to it by him
>Limbs cut off
>Buddy taken away from him, possibly maimed
>Loses all hope and mutates
>Buzzo takes him in his mutated form away
>Presumably as a torture doll
Just what the FUCK is wrong with Buzzo
