To start things off I guess I'll say I've been playing Sengoku Rance for the past few days.
It's a surprisingly good strategy game, if a bit lacking in difficulty beyond the weird, softer time limits you're not told much about.

Just find a class you like and stick with that through out the main story
There are a few classes that start at 30/50 like Samurai and Red Mage (starts at 50) and you just need to own their expansions to unlock them in Ul'Dah, so if you really don't want to level you could always pick those

Good news: I managed to get my payment through.
Bad news: My internet is massively unstable and unlike every other MMO, FFXIV likes to crash to desktop when you disconnect instead of punting you back to login.
Good news: Ultros is still open.
Bad news: I don't know how to move characters so I had to start an entirely new character.
Good news: I still remember how to play the damned game and still had my character appearance saved.
Bad news: What's your name because I think I need to be a higher level before I can join a guild and I'm not sure how far I can level up before my internet kills me again.

This is actually the original track 8. You're using the one from the CD OST that a lot of people replaced the old ones with. A lot of the downloads have mixed up soundtracks since the OST has no track 10 and there are people who picked and chose their favorite versions.

And to make things even more confusing the OST is called "Ever After" but so is the version of the VN itself that came in the Tsukibako compilation pack, which has the original game soundtrack with slight differences and a different track 10. So technically there are two versions of the VN soundtrack, one of which came on a version of the VN called "Ever After" and then there's also the "Ever After OST" that was a standalone music CD release with complete rearrangements and no track 10, which means unless you installed directly from an original disc image and applied the patch you could have the original/Tsukibako/Ever After soundtrack with either the original electric guitar track 10 or the piano track 10 that was replaced in the Tsukibako rerelease, or you could have the "Ever After OST" rearrangements with either track 10 depending on which version of the VN the original uploader replaced the soundtrack of.

Or something like that, I think. My memory don't work so good no more.

I was going to upload it but then I remembered somebody uploaded pretty much every Tsukihime thing you'd ever need, so here:
https://mega.nz/#F!h51nzC6S!5T9zfPETV764eJNx5YHu5A

My preferred setup is the original with the Tsukibako track 10, since that's a better ending credits track than the generic electric guitar riffs. Most people seem to feel pretty strongly about preferring the original/Tsukibako or the Ever After OST but I think they're both pretty good.

It can hard to objectively look at Tsukihime because it was an early experience for a lot of people but it really does strike an excellent balance between character-based emotional storytelling and good old chuunishit. Sort of like an examination of emotional and psychological issue through the lens of a setting that's more familiar to the kind of people who read VNs. For me the fantasy elements actually make it more engaging because it taps into a childhood mentality that got beaten out of me by life as I grew up and puts me into a state more vulnerable to emotional storytelling than I otherwise would be. Arcade and all the other route characters have genuine depth and elicit real empathy, and so does Shiki himself. It's kind of a gentle story in a way that's not really common in power fantasy action type stuff. Honestly, it's the only reason I maintained any interest in TM, and probably the most valuable thing to come out of it, though to be fair I haven't gotten around to Mahoyo.

 No.25337

well as an EXTREMELY OBJECTIVE opinion-haver who read it through the first time, I can tell you with 100% certainty it IS very very good.

>the fantasy elements actually make it more engaging because it taps into a childhood mentality that got beaten out of me by life as I grew up and puts me into a state more vulnerable to emotional storytelling than I otherwise would be

That is a very good way of putting it… it really was refreshing in a way. Just a good in-depth story about vampires and maids and nuns, with zero irony or self-awareness to it. It's so contagiously sincere it's hard not to be taken in.

so yeah anyway a bit of reflection on Tsukihime:

Truth be told, it was very boring at first. I almost dropped it at least a couple of times, but I'm glad I didn't. From the scene Shiki MURDERS vampire moon princess girl it really flowed for me. I would spend literally hours playing through without noticing.

So I'll probably replay it, do some different route.

and who know, I might even consider reading ANOTHER VN! Tsukihime has a proper sequel, and I do have Fate/stay night sitting on my harddrive…

Except Steins;Gate. I tried watching the anime and it bored me to tears. I can't imagine trying to READ through that.

Fate/stay night is amazing. It's one of my favorite VNs. It gets a lot of shit these days, but that's typically due to people pissed off about how the Fate series has gone, and I'd agree with them. There are only two good Fate VNs/games, and that's Fate/stay night and Fate/hollow ataraxia

Fate is way longer than Tsukihime though, so if you're looking for something the same length or shorter, I wouldn't pick FSN.

Don't read this unless you want to be spoiled minorly
The first story, "Fate", is extremely boring and you'll have to sit through it to get to Unlimited Blade Works, which is great, and then Heavens Feel, which is one of the best storylines in a VN I've ever read. You NEED to read Fate though because it sets up a lot of things in UBW and HF that wouldn't make sense without it.

The problem with Fate Stay Night is that the Fate route is definitely the worst of the lot, and that it takes an approach to storytelling that effectively revolves around you playing it three times in a row. Shirou's (and Saber's, and Rin's) character arcs don't happen linearly but in a sort of parallel sequence, across three separate routes.

Do the Akiha route, skip currybutt.

That's how almost every VN works though. They're called routes for a reason, not chapters.

 No.25364

>>25362
In Fate's case, Shirou's entire character hinges on you playing the game all three times. You don't NEED to play most other games with routes through every route to get a handle on the main character.

It's pretty common outside straight romance and nukige stuff actually. I think it's just more pronounced in FSN because you're actually not allowed to move onto the other routes without finishing the previous ones, though I think that might have changed in Realta Nua.

 No.25371

Actually that's pretty much the norm in VNs. I'm not really sure what you're going on about. It only doesn't matter in ones where the MC doesn't matter at all and that's not really common at all either except again, in just pure non-dramatic romance and nukige.

I mostly wanted to play astrologist and scholar because I like playing support roles but from what I hear they've been gutted of most of their uniqueness and are more just variations of white mage now, correct me if I'm wrong.
Also the idea that every job contributes significantly to DPS while some have other roles is kind of weird to me but seems kind of fun too. I'm mostly just thinking over whether I really want to pick up MMO again because I really don't want to return to EVE or play something like Runescape and I'm not very familiar with regular MMOs. I'm really digging the graphics and polish though, it's a very pretty and smooth game so far.

Sorry I went to bed after finally managing to walk to Thanalan from the Shroud without getting killed and then finding out the quest only works if you take the airship.
It's kind of weird to have content gated by solo campaign progression but on the other hand it's pretty cool that it's like a proper full-size JRPG baked into an multiplayer game.

Ah, don't mind. That sucks though… I'm pretty sure they're pretty explicit about taking the airship though lol.

Yeah its alright. The combats cool, the alchemy system is fun, and the characters are great. Only thing you need to be prepared for is non-stop dialogue and cutscenes. I don't know if the previous games were like this but I can't even trigger a sidequest without it turning into a cutscene, its annoying. There also doesn't seem to be much of an incentive to do sidequests either when most of the time its "talk to x and complete", I was hoping for more "craft x" type quests. But I'm only 15 hours in and it doesn't feel like much especially when I just got my second party member.

Haven't actually played the game itself, I've only been messing with the character creator. Apparently the gameplay is some form of survival + dating and the girls are androids or something. I wish we could get a new AA entry. Illusion usually alternates between anime and real graphics in their projects so the next one will probably be more like AA/Koikatu.

I don't remember what they gameplay was like but illusion were never really good with their gameplays. Admittedly the anime style games in recent years have been pretty much iterations of AA, and whilst I do like the series, I'd rather they invest in newer, more expansive gameplay rather than the character maker.
