I said that I preferred to use it differently.
And that's not how fucking language works.

I told you before what people end up liking about the game: they grow attached to the characters over the course of the game, it does some really crazy shit with presentation (especially towards the end), and has some interesting things to say about how games themselves are designed. It's not my fault you just decided to selectively edit that out of your memory. Claiming I gave you no reason at all is an outright falsehood.

You yourself were expressing that very idea moments ago

i think i worded what i said poorly

but thats not what i meant

i dont agree with the fact that people are like "you dont even deserve to see the good parts of the game if you take an option the game itself presents to you"

some people even think that if you do genocide you have somehow done the game wrong

and to some point i cant blame them because the game itself kinda says that

but i cant agree with making the game bad so you can sell people on the real way to play it

an intentionally bad game is still just a bad game

The problem (in general) is that this is an aesthetic trap. 'Games should be mechanically pleasant and making them not so is at cross purposes with their creation' is legit, but once you introduce choice, combining the two and an intentional moral outlook means that you have to reward players for doing 'the wrong thing' - which obviously isn't the point, so how do you design out of this?

Petrikow

you can introduce moral dilemma and make people reflect on their choices without making the game shit (see: specs ops the line(though obviously specs ops gives you no choice so its not entirely comparable))

sometimes the genocide route appeals to your emotions

but most of the time it just frustrates you with endless grinding

It's more work than most would bother with. And again you miss the basic point of: Pacifist Run has no meaning without the option to kill everyone, so those gradations are necessary to have just as much as outright Genocide is.

i already acknowledged that pacifism isnt meaningful without the option to kill and i agree with that choice

but the entire game is just a setup for that meaning, not anything else

there is literally no moral complexity in this paradigm

bad option vs good option

black vs white

really boring choice imo

I mean I don't think there's any need for it to grant legitimacy to the darker neutral or Genocide endings, but as far as the better neutral endings go
Both Asgore and Omega Flowey would be amazing final bosses in any other game. There's nothing stopping you from closing it up right there and accepting a pretty good ending. The only in-game push to continue is Flowey, who is outright manipulating you into it. Hell, in the Sans fight he even implies that he dislikes the notion of even a benevolent entity fucking with time.

omega flowey is kinda cool for the novelty but i dont actually like asgore that much as a fight honestly
as someone who plays 2hu undertale is kinda easy so what makes the boss fights for me are the funny gimmicks and asgore is just a boring schmup boss
and no i totally think it matters

the way only pacifism matters in the game makes everything else a false choice which severely undermines the choices to begin with

Oh well lol I don't give a shit about difficulty whatsoever since I don't like schmups, he's a thematically appropriate boss. Destroys mercy, uses the same attacks as Toriel, fills you with determination, etc

But again, I don't think it does. Like, again, when you beat that first run, the game never overly shames you for it or anything unless you did a bunch of heinous shit for no reason. Certainly if your one kill is Asgore it doesn't, only the character who wants you to fuck with time pushes you to do it, and for an explicitly sinister purpose (doesn't work but there you go).

As for darker shit, ignoring Genocide, what kind of support do you want the game to give those? Do you want a pat on the back if you choose to kill the funny skeleton man? Hell, even the ones actually out to get you are incapable of doing so since reloading is a thing you literally do in universe, they pose no real threat. The only one who does is Flowey, and if you DO kill him at the end of a normal run there totally isn't any punishment, besides not getting hints.

e: UT is an interesting game and I like to pick at it

i dont want a "pat on the back"

id rather the game make me feel more bad about it if anything

but not by just taking its toys and going home but by actually showing me the consequences outside of sans saying mean things near the end of the game

it just feels kinda half-assed and hey maybe thats just the restrictions of an indie-game but its like

pacifist run: a complete game
everything else: not a complete game

so unless you have some pathological hatred for the characters of the game why would you ever be taking a choice which leads to a gameplay experience which just denies you from the good parts

thats why its a false choice

because you dont have any reason to take the other ones

i like the point of a game "where you dont have to kill anyone"

but its execution is lacking because it becomes "where you have to spare everyone" rather than any actual real choice

There's a number of key details you actually miss out on regarding the setting and backstory if you never do or at least read all about Genocide, but one of the things Undertale comments on is the player need for completion at any cost. You reach the end of True Pacifist, and then go and try to play Genocide "just to see what happens" and Flowey is so upset by the notion he asks you to wipe his memory and return him to being evil. You go through Genocide first so you can be satisfied with the "final" ending afterwards, and Chara taints your true ending by murdering everyone. Hell, Flowey even mocks the people who try to watch Genocide on youtube in his replacement of the "undertale" segment.

Oh yeah and
there's also all that Gaster shit but that's like a hidden, weird second gameish thing that's partly about mocking dataminers for looking at it as much as anything, it's ancillary

as for the genocide route

well i talked about it before

but it would be nice if it didnt make the game terrible aside from two boss fights

if anything it feels even more incomplete because it just gives up and lets you oneshot everything between undyne and sans

I did say it was ancillary but as that is the other "game" in there I mentioned it for, ironically I suppose, completion's sake.

Genocide is genocide, I think making it a punishment is fair but we've covered that.

because

again

if the choice isn't there EACH TIME, there's no meaning (it also lets you jump off Genocide if you want to)

you're basically proposing that they're be pros and cons to assassinating these people, but that's asking different game (although I guess there are different outcomes for who can replace asgore depending on the bosses you kill)

It's not SMT. Not killing people shouldn't be like, a Law Route or whatever.

It's not a false choice though. You can get a number of perfectly valid endings from it, as I have already covered! The game has a preferred one of course but yes hello welcome to games with true endings!?

id rather the game sort of turn wanton violence into a slippery slope where the characters actively turn against you after a while, forcing mercy to eventually cease working and leaving you with no option but to fight

this would be 'neutral' and would more heavily lean towards the morals the game itself presents where persevering and sparing everyone is the only good thing to do

pacifism would be much more heavy as then you could see the consequences of sparing rando npc#32 much clearer through the lens of neutral

i guess keep genocide? maybe make it brutally difficult as each boss goes to more and more extreme lenghts to stop you from completing the game?

okay but what's after awhile? how many versions of neutral do you have for this? Does one death just prevent you from ever using mercy every again, as now everyone believes you're a crazy murderer and you just have to keep doing crazy murder because they're trying to put you down?

more like 1 murder makes people start viewing you with distrust

monsters start to try and get rid of you

at some point a boss (maybe undyne) truly then forces the choice between killing her or you dying after which more and more fights afterwards start forcing the same dilemma

as for amount of versions probably just 1 with small differences here and there depending on those you did spare

guess you can keep the 'THIS PERSON IS NOW KING' endings but i mean they barely effect the experience

You said that mercy would stop working, but when is this mysterious threshold that makes it stop?

The main advantage of eating plants is that you get vitamins in higher concentrations than you can find them in meats, as well as a good amount of water to keep you hydrated. Therefore, whenever you consume meat for the amino acids, be sure to also eat a variety of greens, fruits, and other brightly colored soft things that come from the ground so that you don't get scurvy and die.

Though I mention this now, it's also important to note that while lemons do indeed taste good after you dilute their juice and add sugar, or heat them up and add sugar, they don't taste so good when you peel them and eat them.

an interesting point, friend arashi, allow me to bring up another one


- - - Updated - - -


it's not the music, it's the composer, which I think is fair

I don't know or care about homestuck so I can't comment on that, I simply am not going to entertain the bandied notion that this is a wing of the grand Hussie Empire or whatever

so you dont know shit

i mean its rodyle what did i expect

soon there shall simply be

The Convention

I think the deal is anime conventions are better-organized and have a better infrastructure, in general, than other kinds of cons that are out there. Other conventions you might have are for a more specific topic, and that makes them have a much smaller number of people who would be interested in coming to a con. So I think weird niche fandoms latch onto anime cons. Not that this makes it less annoying for a weeb out to have a good time, but I think there's a reasonable explanation for it. There's not really a way to have a "weird niche western fandoms" con.

Then why do the Kendo demonstrations and Baby the Stars Shine Bright fashion shows have some of the larger turnout?

While those dumb AMAs get like two dozen people and would be better spent getting a drink from a bar down the street.
because all of the above are things that weebs or interested in, simply to varying degrees

The point is that the homestuck connection isn't terribly relevant and is almost exclusively brought up in the first place as some kind of attack on the game.

Like, they can go and cosplay with all the other people, that's fine, it's not like we don't have cosplay from other stuff, but the actual legitimate resources that gets wasted on them is annoying.

Yes, I know, most people hang out taking pictures outside and go to buy overpriced stuff, but if I'm gonna be serious about this, it's a specific problem with the resources they hog. I'd complain about the programming people but that wasn't the thing to comment on at the time, and they got dropped this year anyway.

considering that I tend to hear said connection brought up in the same breath as "it's just an sjw game" you can maybe forgive me if I'm initially dismissive of it mattering

like is there some meaningful comparison you have to make between the two that makes it important to bring up or did you just want to complain about me brushing it aside?

I don't really think Undertale and Homestuck are that much alike since to me the defining characteristics of Homestuck were that it was 1) largely shaped by fan feedback (since it started based on user submissions and went on to reference its own fanbase regularly) and 2) fucking huge and dense to the point that nobody has any idea what's going on ever. While Undertale is a small self-contained game.

You have something like Undertale, or Homestuck, or likewise thing. You get a huge room to cover it. It has shitty turnout. That's bad. Because that huge room could've gone to something else that's both related and huge room worthy. But hey, no, it's alright, this thing is POPULAR, it'll get plenty of turnout, even though really all those people are hanging outside taking photos and doing glomp circles and whatever. But hey, that's alright, we only didn't get a guest from a show or an artist or something that would've used this space because this was gonna work when it never does.
