The trials were still alright for the most part but in EP 5, I was lost many times as to how to progress the game, turned out I had to present various stuff while talking to people, didn't like that aspect too much.

Tried the first game recently and the level of reasoning required is way above just comprehension. I had to look up a wiki to progress

And its impossible to claim that majority of the mentioned people live "normal lives". Is minor racial discrimination also accounted in a normal life or a physical transgression is necessary to exclude them? In the latter case, sure it's safe to assume that majority of these people live normal lives.

Maybe as a contrast to Cyberpunk? They had to crunch too but it didn't help much.

I know people don't have any tact when communicating online but this post is pointless. Those who are guilty as charged won't change due to this unconvincing post and it just comes off as masturbatory

Never tried these falling methods but I'd say the arrow stub is easier and safer

I think his favourite sign (the one where we have to kill him to read about him) is the one that never gets fixed. All other things get fixed. I might be misremembering though. His diary implies there are other menderbugs so they could repair stuff.

Edit: Yep, I checked. "The sign at the entrance of the Forgotten Crossroads remains broken after Menderbug is killed."

As for me? I am only here to tend to the flames.

I keep the candles lit and serve the brave Demon slayers who are trapped here.

He owes nothing to the readers, legally or morally. Nothing insane about that. You order a tv show on dvd, watch it and it gets cancelled after a season, do you feel that the people in charge owed customers the subsequent seasons?

A person's autonomy must be respected. Whether he is unable or unwilling to write, his fans don't have any right to demand he write it. It is not as if the customers' continuous patronage was the only reason he was able to publish the books. It is a capitalist age, people paid for the market value of the book, not because they personally wanted to support the writer's profession. That business is with him and his publisher. I think the publisher is more than happy with their deal and if there's any substantive obligations, that's between them, not with us.

Its a very divisive issue lol. Just as vicious as the argument of using anime subs vs dubs and foreign movies subs vs dubs. As someone who's familiar with multiple languages but not highly fluent in all (English is my best) I've watched many languaged movies and I don't understand every word (or any at all, incase of foreign films) but I still prefer to watch them in the original audio with subs if necessary. To me the language is part of the movie, I can not help but be amused when a Japanese ninja says "sir" to someone, ruins the immersion for me.

Those are in DS3? I only played 1 completely, still playing 3. Still it's one thing to have a boss with a gimmick and another to give a gimmick to the player. Not judging it without seeing the actual mechanics though. But you have to admit, it's a big decision to give a player such ability (to fly/climb vertically). I kinda prefered it would be a realistic mount, like having to tie it and tend to it but that's clearly not the direction they wanted to take.

Funny way of looking at it. I enjoyed reading the books, the time I spent reading them and the fan theories was more than worth it. I never would see that as a waste of time, conclusion is not the only thing that matters. Everybody already knows the conclusion for the most part, he outlined it for the show, still everybody wants the books for the experience and the characters, not merely the plot.

all believable monsters compared to an elk that can fly and vanish/appear on command.

I think I get his point. What he was trying to say was that Death Stranding kinda resembled today's depressing and isolated atmosphere a little too quickly and that if real life is like that, you don't want a game that reminds you of that grim reality, you want to have a fun thing with something to learn.

?? but there are already two bonfires?

Honestly I hate only the Dukes Archives. Two armoured boars before the entrance. It's a nightmare for pure melee builds, if they catch you in their attacks, hp begone. The area was cool to play it the first time but the whole spiel about escaping the prison gets old. The staircase "puzzle" is nice but the crystal hollows are annoying af. Minor nitpick but there are also no NPC invasions or summons to make it a little bit more interesting. There's the Logan quest but kinda useless unless you're a sorceror
