it’s not that the game is hard or scary actually the exact opposite i legitimately lost sleep over how awful the game is. it bites into the dhmis ddlc style of kid-friendly stuff turns surrealist horror but just bombs completely and instead just is embarrassing and GOD i was mad about that awful GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN BOLD TEXT for like a whole week it’s so forced and trying so hard
being made quickly for a game jam is a fine excuse for the game being bad it is not a fine excuse for the game being popular. also it was made in three DAYS which is way longer than some games have come out and all game jam products are made on a time limit with most being more than playable even still that would excuse the graphics it does not excuse the GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN BOLD TEXT or the other lame gimmicks like "i hear every door you open" and such
no enemies in that game matter except for playtime.
the update added a new ending, adjusted baldis speed curve, added an enemy kinda similar to Gotta Sweep,removed the no eating in the halls rule, added a no bullying rule which affects the bully and if you use safety scissors on Playtime and new enemy, 3 new items
too late you got me going i am so sick of trying to keep up w the dumb fricking decisions dontnod makes with its characters. it’s clear they don’t recognize their own lgbt cult following and if it ain’t gay the monster don’t pay
ik it’s free i just wanted to use that phrase
i’ll buy the max and chloe continuation comics up until they kill chloe again or decide max is straight for some reason and by that point i’ll die of having so many blood clots burst bc the one franchise i invested in for decent treatment of lgbt characters is being controlled by a bunch of oblivious hettys
i know it’s a bitter and irrational response to a game trailer so i’ll chill. i’m just super apprehensive about this game bc of how awful the wiki treated it. dontnod also promised us a female protagonist for lis2 and didn’t make good on that but whatever i’m taking s1 and my canon pricefield sacrifice arcadia bay ending and leaving them to do whatever
ok it’s back to a 1v1 it was gonna be ft the kid from kindgergarten, yandere-chan and the notepad from dhmis but 1. don’t have the energy for that 2. yandere-dev can eat my entire ass and 3. does anyone really ever want to see dhmis in a battle ever again aren’t they kinda like fnaf at this point
FLATS' GUIDE FOR WRITING CHARACTERS EVERYONE SUCKS AT PORTRAYING EXCEPT THEM
episode 1: frisk (ft chara kind of)
right off the bat: frisk, chara, mk, napsta, and mad dummy's genders are legit never mentioned in canon and every joke about nb's that you can think of has been made so maybe just leave that topic alone
if you do want to make a dumb diss about gender just remember frisk is nonbinary and not 'gender interprative' or whatever bs
bad interpretations of frisk:
exhibit a: shy pacifist babby uwu does no wrong and is v quiet!!!
neither frisk nor chara are responsible for the genocide route, chara makes it p clear it was all the players fault. monsters dont know that obv so they blame frisk so its still fine to diss but neither should brag about genocide (uh lol)
by the same token its just as canon that frisk refuses to forgive asriel as it is that they hug them in the end and neutral routes are still a thing so frisk doesnt have to be a perfect saintly angel
exhibit b: stone-faced robot who is super silent and unfazed by everything
frisk talks over the phone a lot and no one mentions their still expression so feel free to have other characters diss them for it but it shouldnt be part of their character
- v sassy (talks back to toriel and undyne a lot)
- v goofy (pretends to be undyne for alphys, balances hot dogs on their head for sans, goofs off with paps, plays the snowball game on their own time)
- v flirty
- still a kid tho so dont make any sex jokes
- still a kid so write for them like a kid. think mk's dialogue minus all the yo's. lots of exclamation points is what im saying
essentially think of how youd write for young link. he's a kid and he's p hyper so just bc he's a silent protagonist you wouldnt write him as reserved and quiet or anything right
anyway thats all for today like favorite and subscribe tune in for next weeks installment on every character from life is strange ever.
being third most popular rpg maker game is like being the third most popular spelling bee contestant of all time. good luck naming the third most popular spelling bee contestant
either way mad father, corpse party, ao oni and maybe misao all are more popular than ib.
fran bow was a game that was popular for maybe a month and has not been spoken of since. being played 'by a bunch of famous yters' doesnt mean anything when a, not everyone watches gaming channels, and b, famous yters play a ton of games.
rights arent a problem for nintendo anymore anyways, they got snake, they won't have trouble getting geno.
problem is geno is just such a lame frickin pick. like ok we could have banjo kazooie or rayman or crash but instead we get the doll from one mario game that hasnt even stayed relevant and doesnt even belong to nintendo?? if were getting side characters for dlc then give me dixie, octoling, marx and skull kid, all of those four have more influence in their franchises then frickin geno.
i main inkling and i love k rool and ridley. take ricther, ken, incineroar, cloud, chrom, dark pit, piranha plant and the dumb frickin persona weeb out of the game and replace them w/ dixie, marx, octoling, crash, banjo, rayman, ninten and viridi and you'd have a perfect smash game.
skull kid can come too i guess. just for the love of God stop putting third parties in the game especially dumb anime characters like cloud corrin and mr persona.
richters holy water doesnt have fire properties, so it cant activate links bombs and etc
rayman might be iconic but hed be boring as hail
i want you to honestly think, and tell me hed have a fun, interesting moveset
persona 5 is one of the biggest JRPGS in the last decade maybe, huge in japan AND the west, its owned by sega, whos already allowed characters in the game, jokers playstyle would be something not explored yet, making him less difficult to get rights to and what not, plus sakurai is an avid fan of persona, taking inspiration for smash ultimates menus from it, it has a killer soundtrack, could even have an assist in the form of jack frost. the only thing its really lacking is stage potential, and itll probably be the velvet room or mementos. he fits wonderfully into smash
also if you pull things like Well rayman is ICONIC but then say someone like cloud fucking (i dont care community central people) strife doesn't belong in the game because you see him as an anime weeb deviantart oc, i cant take any arguement you present seriously
i think you completely missed my point in that ken and richter are virtually identical to simon and ryu **yet have unique properties.** if they can find a way to make blonde ryu his own character then they can do it with their own property, octoling included. hell, they made daisy her own character.
uhh maybe you just haven’t played a rayman game but ofc rayman would be fun lmfao why would rayman not be fun but another pasty blade wielder from an anime game would be
nothing you said in this paragraph matters bc you can literally take all this and apply it to something like undertale or celeste or shovel knight. except the sakurai part and he didn’t pick the dlc’s.
actually the da oc comment was for mr persona, not cloud, but it’s funny that that term could literally mean either. yes i know cloud is a gaming icon as well and from a popularity standpoint sure he’s fine but he’s boring and i don’t think he fits into smash. same reason goes for ryu, they’re plenty able to be here i just don’t personally think they should be.
if you're interested, i'm writing occassional one verse eight line battles over on erbohorror wiki (yes it was a thing i'm just using it's desecrated remains) and congrats, you are one of the lucky few i enjoy speaking to enough to invite to come check it out
also if you ever want to collab on a literal one verse eight line battle and finally make a very short ridley vs k rool happen this would be a good opportunity for that lol
im sure this first line is a reference to something i just dont know what.
anyway neat. i will wait with bided breath
haha well i appreciate you typecasting me but i actually hadnt heard about that. now that i know i am definitely going to check it out and play it regardless of how bad it might end up being due to general dontnod-iness. speaking of which my first and so far only battle ive posted has a life is strange character in it surprise.
hey, congrats. thats a big first step. im almost done with my college take 2 actually so thats neat timing
i think i shared a few thoughts when i was around for strange vs stranger 2 but here's the rundown.
che vs guy was my fav so far, che was rlly rlly good but peter's performance is genuinely obnoxious
mcdonald vs bk has some really questionable lines (i have since learned it was a freestyle minus wendy which makes sense) and its funny to me how obvious it is when pete and lloyd bring in a real rapper bc wendy's actress was amazing
carlin vs pryor was good except for pryor. still some weird parts in joan's verse but i think she solidly won. happy they did cosby dirty like that but wouldve preferred him just not be there at all lol
cousteau vs irwin is one of those times when they wanted to use irwin more than they wanted to make a fair battle. i'm fine with that.
teresa vs freud is one of pete's better performances actually but theresa still won. really great costume for the actress.
vlad vs dracula was uhhh weird?? pete's entire dracula performance gave off creepy old man hitting on young girls vibes which i guess is accurate but also i hate it. crackula whackula shaqula olive garden breadsticks
ill look at pennywise vs joker when it comes out, sounds neat.
terryyyy! ive played his stage more than ive played him but he's cool. really does not need the super go meter thing to already be high tier and his frame data is frickin stupid. jab 1 jab 2 down b.
i also messaged cherrae witch (i think thats their new username) on here.
edit: apparently no i didnt. last night was a fever dream.
uh so funny enough thats actually mortal kombat vs tekken, helena and sarah are the orphan black twins, but since youve brought that mu back up im gonna use it now instead lol
kit and mileena vs ana and nina was originally a royale w/ sophitia and cassandra and then kasumi and ayane followed by either gamora and nebula or the squid sisters but since the fifth option sucked and i knew nothing about any of them i kinda gave up on it.
it's a royale for sisters from fighting games, essentially.
