Same. I did as many side quests as I could before leaving for Altissia (and reaching Cape Caem unlocks a flood of 'em all over). But now I'm there and overlevelled as all get-out.
Most of my saved photos are of Gladiolus, naturally. I've shared a bunch to my Twitter.
Also, since it's now Sunday here… HAPPY 29th BIRTHDAY, FINAL FANTASY!!! Next year's gonna be a big deal, particularly if certain rumours carry any weight…!
I found FFXV to be even more disappointing than XIII, and that's because XV actually does do a lot I like but squanders it all through shitty storytelling, boring samey sidequests, and a messy combat system. And then there's the horrendous treatment of its few female characters, the obvious cut content, some horribly designed set pieces, and a disgustingly blatant set up for an upcoming paid DLC.
And this wouldn't bother me so much if the game didn't have some really strong high points, a good core cast, and a fantastic soundtrack. (whereas FFXIII had a shitty story, it was around the same level all throughout)
I don't hate it (far from it), but it's a disappointing mess of a game. And I'm not even someone who was anticipating the game or had especially high hopes for it. :(
I didn't have high hopes for this game at all either and I was completely surprised at how much I'm loving it as well as how the game just feels like a damn good Final Fantasy thus far (I'm in chapter 3 right now).
I've been playing FFs since 1996 and lived through the golden age of Square's games as well as the shit age (2006-now). I've gone off for years about the delay for this game all that… and every time I play it I feel like I'm getting the game I've wanted from Square all these years. Its great and I love it. I don't have a problem with the characters, aside from Cindy (whom I also love), I haven't noticed any ill treatment of female characters thus far and the soundtrack/world design/battle system are all surprisingly good and all come together into a unified experience.
I'm at the beginning and I'm already dreading getting to the point where I've finished the game I just don't want it to end. It's so good.
Never played FF, but like Gladio. Should I buy the game?
If your only motivation is because you like that one character Gladiolas then the answer is simple: definitely not
Playing a videogame just because it's got "sexy" characters, can there be any worse reasoning?
Buy the game right now. This anon (>>6824) is incorrect and is actively lying to you, buy the game and revel in the company of that hunk.
I'm already in chapter 3 and loving every minute of it. I killed Deadeye but have not found Ramuh yet. I'm gonna explore all of Duscae before going to meet Gladiolus' sister Iris and moving on with the plot.
I've also been thinking about how much I fucking loved playing BloodBorne and how I need to return to that when I'm done with FFXV. DS3 as will since I basically sped through the game with my first character but BB comes first. I got so many games all at once it fucked with my standard MO of thoroughly playing games before moving tot he next so I can get the most of what they have to offer.
"Cheers, love, the cavalry's queer!"
That new comic made me so incredibly happy. Tracer really is the perfect character to write as queer (I still ship Soldier 76/Reaper hard, though), and considering how she's the mascot of what is easily the most popular game of this year, one that will likely keep that title for some years to come, this is all the more of an amazing decision.
I hope everyone realizes how big this is, too. This is one of the biggest and most successful videogame companies in the world, one of the most heavily publicized and general audience-oriented games in practically a decade, and its most visible character, which every player sees prominently when they log into the game, with the reveal being made at the most stereotypically "family-friendly" time of the year. If Blizzard can do that, no other video game developer has any excuse whatsoever to avoid writing LGBTQ characters into their own games. This is one hell of a milestone, one I hope more devs will pick up on.
Fighting games, Overwatch, and Pokemon were big donors.

yeah Abzu is pretty good but I had a large problem with it. It's basically "underwater journey". now i have no problem with that in concept but it's not really pushing forward creatively. you have a pretty visuals, cool music, nice pacing and mood…. and that's it. everything you did in journey but… underwater. so for me it felt like a really great retread of a game i already played. not bad but i wouldn't want to play another game like this without some forward creativity. Honestly I wish I could play this in VR it seems like the creative push it needs to not feel like journey 2.0.
You can click on a user's post number to quote them, fyi
Fuck, just one more chapter left for FF XV. I'm so sad that I don't wanna finish this. ;_;
Also bought Disgaea 5 about a week ago since it was on sale. I'm having a blast with it. It's my first game in the series too. Red Magnus is SUPER awesome (and hot).
I know that feel, anon.
I honestly didn't think I was gonna tear up as much as I did for FFXV, I guess I'm a simple man after all.
SWITCH PRESENTATION TONIIIIIGHT!!!
Just ten hours to go~
What do you think?
I actually love handhelds. But I've been burned by so many launch droutghts I may hold off anyways. Good as Zelda may be doubt it will entertain me for several months. Wish Monster Hunter was on it.
I'm definitely sold. There was plenty there, but the clincher (particularly in the bara demographic): Pimp Bowser.
Also, I'm positive that Squenix will have something Final Fantasy-related to show at the 30th Anniversary presentation at the end of the month.
Everyone, please come vote for Mordecai! Even if you're not planning on playing the game!
>>7149>not voting Largo
what are you, some kind of retard?
I also voted for him, but I needs my big blue gentle giant Laguz!
Oh, and Brom! He's so adorable, and he looks like Ralph!
Which Stardew Valley guy should I marry?
Mid-way results were posted and none of the guys I and people here would have voted for are in the top 20, aside from Dorcas. GG
FE Heroes is out. Anyone get any good gacha rolls?
I did about 12 and got stopped when I got Bartre.
I used my first few orbs on castle upgrades, because each one gives a permanent 20% increase to EXP earned. As for gacha rolls, I'm gonna wait until they add characters I actually want. Like Brom~
I was disappointed by SG0 personally. The non-linear structure really hurts the plot progression and some of the routes have some really eye-rolling scenes, like the Reyes confrontation in the Amadeus Kurisu ending
. Not to mention the ending, which wasn't even properly adapted from its source material.
what the fuck??? they took out the fundoshi?????
Russia has laws prohibiting homosexuality in media, and overwatch is an obscure thing over there.
No fundoshi? Cowards.
… but the tracer butt controversy was a thing of HORROR. oh god THE HORROR!!!
make up your mind
Saw a few days ago some gif of it, thanks! I was looking for it and was getting desperate!
What is this post?>>7679
Gregg/Angus is not only one of the most believable gay couples in games, they're one of the most believable couples in general.
Lmao Undertale is fucking garbage
Without even playing the game anyone can tell that Night in the Woods will be infinitely better by comparison.
It indeed was
presenting a character in a hypersexualized manner and presenting a character in a healthy, consenting romantic relationship is not the same thing
Lack of taste goes along with that attitude.
Woah, woah, woah. The new game from UGCP is finished? http://www.digiket.com/work/show/_data/ID=ITM0152450/
So episode Gladiolus was released and it seems that we can FINALLY have a shirtless outfit for him after scoring certain amount of points in the bonus mode that you unlock after finishing the episode!
Can't wait to get home.
Centaurs were always about raping other people in mythology so there's a fact.
>>8061>Does him being kinda like Bara bait to you?
hmm I'm not sure if he's bara bait.
To me he looks like the typical women swoon you usually find in BL material with lotsa beautiful hair and this time around muscles too. "Lean" muscles of course because any more muscle mass or definition wouldn't be bishounen anymore.
If you think Gladio is in any way bishonen then you are fucking blind.
Oohhh here comes the first fanboy.
What about him is not bishounen?
He looks exactly like any character from the anime Free!, just with a little added facial hair.
Not to say that he doesn't look great though ^^
Just not really bara bait.
lol the new ARMS character is a big beefy wrestler with a huge ass, bouncing pecs, and a mechanic where his muscles expand to twice their normal size
Playing the newest FF XIV expansion.. so many handsome Roes. There's even a spa in the new town where one of them is getting a massage. 8)
Yep. He has ALL of that
So yummy :3
On the contrary, yes indeed.
Take a look at this character from a fairly new BL game. Color his hair dark and add a little facial hair. There, looks almost exactly like that Gladio guy.
Yep definitely blind as fuck.
Just keep doing what you're doing though. You're definitely going to convince someone eventually.
Here we go again somebody deciding what is bara or not and we the omegavamire as exemple of yaoi I'm suppose it's the same guy we have to thanks for having full service topic closed.
First you probably do know a lot about bishonen, even yaoi fangirl would not see him as one.
Second you use exemple to compare without realising that your exemple are more exception to the rule than the rule.
Gladios is seen as bara by a lot of people(even girl and straight men), honestly I don't even kow why you try to change that, you just forcing your definition of bara on others.
Friendly reminder we have a dedicated "what is bara?" thread here: >>4875
Sadly, this is not true.
I just don't view Gladios as bara just because he has some muscles, a bit of a beard and shows naked upper body.
Sadly there is a shallow majority that does so -.-
To me he's a hot guy but more like a cool and cheerful aniki.
He's missing the raw sexuality, the pure testosterone and just in general the overwhelming manlyness.
But sure, force your ideals of what is bara on anything that remotely resembles a man -.-
btw artists just do what they do best, they oversexualize things and draw things like they perceive how they ought to be.
I think you miss my point, and from your answer I think you need to learn what opinions means.
then maybe you will understand that telling you that people that have different definition than you doesn't mean that I force my definition on you(and I didn't even said what my opinion is, I just talk about people's in general so I'm not sure how I can force my opinion when you don't even know it).
and you will also understand to not look down on people who disagree with you(you call them shallow and the first guy who you disagree with was a "fanboy"…)
with this I will stop here first because of>>8283
and second because I don't think this discussion will lead to anything and isn't worth bringing up the "what is bara?" thread so I will just post this to end it here.
>>8292>I think you miss my point, and from your answer I think you need to learn what opinions means.
Right back at you.
I just thought to give this discussion a try and share one opinion of mine. Sure enough it quickly got resonance because it doesn't agree with the consensus.
Still, it's my opinion on the matter.>[…]doesn't mean that I force my definition on you(and I didn't even said what my opinion is[…])
You're right, you never did. My mistake ^^">and you will also understand to not look down on people who disagree with you
Oh please. "Looking down on people" works differently.
I just used the term "fanboy" out of fun and funnily enough a reply followed almost instantly using a bit more strong language. Proved my point.
And sure enough people here are shallow. I don't think I have to go further into this very fact.>I don't think this discussion will lead to anything
As you said, this is just like, your opinion. And is cute how you think you can pass judgement on who is shallow and who isn't. But the best part is that you found a way to feel superior. Congrats.
Looks good, but unfortunately namco still hasn't learned that men have bulges.
What other games have bulges?
Sf4 had bulges until sfv.
Anyone playing Fortnite?
Anyone playing Kritika Online? Wouldn't mind some people to chat and play with.
Got a little guild set up as well if anyone wants to join. Just search for the guild Fervor ingame.
I'm not really into those types of games but I thought it was ok. Yangus is in it too so that's a nice bonus.
do you like dragon quest and/or musou games? if so, then you will probably like this game
ive played dqh2, which is decent
gay dwarf romance in the new Divinityhttps://youtu.be/deBgxFWUR6Q
Sooo after Dream Daddy, now we got this.
Boyfriend Dungeon is an upcoming game where you plunder dungeons while also dating your weapons.
It's a hack-n-slash game with dating aspect? You date your weapon and level up their uh, love.
Coming in 2019 btw :\http://www.boyfrienddungeon.com
The mechanics looks really snappy, but the dating aspect doesn't look great especially when the characters don't look very sexy
>>9497>especially when the characters don't look very sexy
that art is garbo af
when you think you wouldnt see uglier art than the adam one
game doesn't interest me at all but I felt at least compelled to check if the art is really that "bad"
I don't see a problem with the art at all. It looks way better than one of the worst I've ever seen, which is any of those Blackmonkey games.
It's totally decent.
>>9537>totally decent graphics
Yeah, that sounds cheap
>>9515>Blackmonkey worse than this
once the realization kicks in it sure is
even more so if you think about how people regard any of that awful artwork by blackmonkey/mazjojo as "bara"
hilarious how ridiculous that is, but of course calling this game's artwork "garbo af"
