Five from Drakengard 3. I am going to buy the shit out of this game. I learned how to knit recently, so that and my re-playthrough of Okami kind of eat all my hobby time (as if I had any to begin with).
Dude why is this manga so good, seriously. Roommate and I watched How to Train Your Dragon with a whole bunch of wine and then I was like, “Fanart would be a good thing to do right now.” The latest chapters though, woah. This shit is so brief, but I would definitely place it among my favorites.
a wannabe elf that doesn’t even talk has to save the world and he doesn’t even get the girl
a city where people live in daily terror as a group of all-powerful psychopaths run riot across the town daily, murdering and destroying as they see fit and never facing any consequences for their actions, eventually being rewarded with fame and riches
You’re living in a geographically inaccurate miniature version of California and are forced to murder dozens and dozens of people to get anywhere. You can’t buy a car
you are a weird block person and you walk around your weird block world punching stuff, destroying the enviroment, getting lost and dying a lot
you have to save the world by yelling at dragons as loudly as possible
you leave home at a young age to travel the country on foot, as is custom. strange and deadly animals live in the tall grass, which is pretty much everywhere. your sole source of income is animal fighting, which is also what the entire economy happens to be based on. you have an inexplicable obligation to thwart the every move of a large, hammy criminal organization with grunts who are very, very bad at their jobs. also, you have a shitty rival who follows you around making comments about your smell. but at least there’s universal health care.
Quite a few people have robotic limbs for some reason, but then they get really pissed off when new technology means they aren’t needed anymore. They’re left in the break room complaining that the vending machine gave them lemon lime. You’re one of the new ones, and they think you wear sunglasses to be cool, but it’s actually because your eyes have computers in or some shit. You end up flying round the world in a black helicopter with stubby wings. Everyone keeps coughing and complaining about the government. Why can’t they just chillax and put computers in their eyes?
You’re a jerkass otaku that murders people with a weapon ripped off from a popular franchise. He wants to become the best assassin in the world just to bang a chick he just met. All you do is kill people and drive around a shitty fake California city. None of the characters matter because everyone dies and those that don’t are asshole murderers. The narrative is all over the goddamn place with a million unnecessary twists. If you actually bother to play the sequel, you can’t even drive anymore and it’s just more killing people that don’t fucking matter…again. The game leads you to believe there will be tons of boss fights, but they bullshit past a lot of them. The story is confusing at best and there are tons of “retro” mini-games.
