I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy this game. Aside from being able to do a pacifism playthrough and the Mother references, what does this have to offer?
just look at this shit, it looks like a cartoon made for 4 year olds, dont you see anything wrong about adults getting hyped about stuff like this?
western civilization is truly doomed, open the fucking gates, bring on the apocalypse
Its very meta.
A lot of the quirks and humor of the game would really only be appreciated by someone who plays video games.
Also its soundtrack is 10/10, even though its filled with remixes of the same tunes.
Well there's the genocide run which has two really cool boss fights. Overall though it has fantastic music, neat gameplay mechanics, charming writing, and it's just ten bucks.
It's not exactly a huge investment if you don't like it. I believe it has a demo if you wanna just see if it's something you'd be interested in though.
It's more about interacting with characters and the world than gameplay, though there is some in attack dodging
You could always buy the game and if you don't like it within two hours of playtime request a refund. Even then it's only ten dollars, so it's not a huge investment one way or another.
Well there's a genocide run. It's okay, but worth it if you enjoy the gameplay. It's a fun twist on the bullet hell genre that will keep you interested by adding new rules /mechanics as you progress and it's pretty short. Story isn't bad; it's like Devil May Cry 3 where it's nothing particularly revolutionary or impressive, but stands out as solidly done.
Not falling for your shit today, Bowser. I'm out
Fun but not Touhou level bullet hells. Charming characters, a compelling story. And the atmosphere completely changing based on your decisions. It's also colorful and unique, which a lot of 2D indie games fall flat on.
boughtit two days ago. I'm really taking my time with it now, don't want it to end. I knew that they assigned a big deal to doing a pacifist run, but holy shit does the game twist the knife on you for the seemingly smallest decisions.
No you're not. Sans even talks about how you were acting in self-defense and all (unless you killed Papyrus or Toriel, in which case he's understandably less forgiving). Undyne doesn't like you, but that's to be expected based on her character.
I wouldn't say that. Like, you fight those Dog Knights, and I spared almost all of them except the pair that fight you, because their deliberately unavoidable double axe attack pissed me off. Killed them both, carried on feeling like a badass.
Short while later I saw the Dog Knights gathered together in a diner, complaining they couldn't get a card game going, and wondered where their friends were.
Pretty low key shit.
Now, if you killed Papyrus, the game turns into a depressing guilt trip.
>Sans even talks about how you were acting in self-defense and all
If the player resets from a save point after hearing his speech, Sans judges the protagonist based on how high their LV is:
If the protagonist is at LV 1 (but has more than 0 EXP), Sans presumes that they killed someone just to see what he'd say about it. He says "wow. you're a pretty gross person, huh?"
If the protagonist is at LV 2, Sans says that it's pretty sad that the protagonist messed up the slightest amount, and that they probably didn't know what they were doing, but then says that he's kidding, stating: "who gets to LV 2 on accident? get outta here."
If the protagonist is at LV 3, Sans gives the protagonist a C+, and tells the protagonist that they can do better.
If the protagonist is above LV 3, Sans says that they probably killed some people on purpose, though maybe some of it was in self defense, and that he's not sure, as he wasn't watching.
If the protagonist is above LV 9, Sans says that doesn't mean that the protagonist is 50% good, and questions "what can I say that will change the mind of a being like you...?"
If the protagonist is above LV 14, Sans will say that the protagonist is a "pretty bad person," but that they could be worse, and that they "pretty much suck at being evil."

I have never played a souls game, nor do I intend do.
My mistake then. I killed those dogs in vain.

Come on Anon don't do it, we're having a moderately shitty thread. Don't go full shitstorm.

She's just overweight. Undyne is undeniably better, but a woman's value isn't determined by her weight.
