I whacked this into my PS4 last night, I do not know what I'm doing yet.

for the most part what you're doing is listening to the GOAT game soundtrack while beating up robots

I made it to the amusement park and it was kinda magical, which underscores something: why are my enemies so cute? I am sad killing them.

I'd forgotten how to reach one area and went on YouTube to find a video, and the auto complete spoiled some stuff, wtf.

Anyway, after browsing some non spoilery videos, I'm getting incrementally better at the combat system, I can do that evasion counter with some consistency.

9S is a choad, though.

I started a quest where a machine asked me to provide security for their pride parade. But all the enemies were at level 30 and I'm at 13 or 14, so I failed and I felt bad. (Hopefully the machines aren't dissuaded by the light massacre and will let me try again.)

that's a B route quest, don't waste your time on it now, it's way too hard

I'm about 10 hours in, and I'm not really getting the game. I might bump up the difficulty to hard, as the fighting (even the Goliath bosses) have been mostly boring.

I must be playing this wrong.

Finished the A path, which kind of took me by surprise. Anyway, time to celebrate by eating mackerels.

I started B last night, and the opening with the machine and the bucket and the oil was just heartbreaking.

I think I'm starting to get this game, the secret is to look the of ignore to the main story and explore to find cool gear. Kind of obvious yeah but I typically hate exploring.

i didn't do much side stuff and loved the game so idk maybe just not yr thing

I stole some stuff from Emil and he proceeded to destroy me. I didn't last 10 seconds. Thanks, friendo!

OK so I just got to this part that kinda sorta BROKE MY HEART. Jeeeeez omg I was not ready for the devastation.

Similarly, I humbly submit that this track in all its delicate pathos belongs in the conversation of best video game songs ever.

I prefer the version where he sings random nonsense, especially when you're having some emotional conversation and he drives by haha

lol I saw a different YT with the same thing, tbh I felt a little shortchanged when I reached that point in the story without him driving by.

1. Hardest credit sequence ever.
2. Lost all my save data.

Siouxie Sioux Vide (Leee), Saturday, 29 December 2018 04:35 (nine months ago) link

you made the right choice

ciderpress, Saturday, 29 December 2018 16:52 (nine months ago) link

I thought the game was trolling me, and it was, just not the way I expected it to.

Siouxie Sioux Vide (Leee), Saturday, 29 December 2018 20:43 (nine months ago) link

I tried to get ending N, and now I feel terribly guilt ridden. I had to mute the game just because I couldn't bear listening to them. I can't imagine myself going through with this again.

two weeks pass...

I started playing again to rebuild my save file and I'm enjoying it way more this time! Probably has to do with the expectation factor.

That was an interesting adaptation of "Romeo and Juliet."

one month passes...

the GOAT game soundtrack

If you asked me this while playing the game, I wouldn't have agreed, but when I heard its tracks in a context outside of the game, I was unexpectedly moved inna Proustian manner!

yeah the resistance camp and city ruins songs still do that for me
