Orange Star High School or Post Apocalyptic Russia?
Maybe I'll just do both!
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen has been completed! Yay! I was surprised how they ended it the second time through. I was also surprised that I finished Speedrun Mode in just under an hour. I honestly like this game. It wasn't the greatest, but it was fun and I think it looked good too.
I still have a problem ending up with the inkeeper though. Dragon's Dogma tracks affection levels through interaction. So if you talk to one person a lot, like an inkeeper, the game will put you in a relationship. Now this was reworked a bit later, but the old formula unfortunately still applies. During my initial run, I did what the game wanted me to do and ended up with the person the game was nudging towards me as my soulmate or whatever. But during the post game, even though I had given the other person the Arisen's Bond aka wedding/promise ring to greatly boost affection levels, I ended up with the inkeeper. He's got good prices.. what can I say? And while it has no real bearing on the story except for who pops up at the end, its just weird to see. I felt like the Arisen should be yelling, "That's my inkeeper! Give him back!" I basically saved the dude that watches my stuff, then watched him pounce on me, then got back home and the same guy now charges me to sleep in my own home because he lives there now too..? Ok then.
I beat the game 4 times. Everytime.. he was there. All I did was one quest for him back during my first playthrough. I teleported him to where he wanted to go and left him there. After that, we obviously knew what true love really was.
The real blessing happened after I beat the game. I was in my Xbox menu and checked my Dragon Ball Xenoverse achievements and that damn bugged achievement finally popped. More than a month of waiting and checking and it randomly pops after I beat another game. DBX wasn't even in the Xbox. In fact, no game was playing. But I got the achievement and that's what matters. So now I get to to the long, luck-based haul of collecting the rest of the super and ultimate attacks for the last two achievements respectively. Its really 3, but the last one is for getting all achievements which I read is also a little buggy for some. But I'm not going to just sit, replaying the same missions over and over hoping for skills to be rewarded. There's other games to play and enjoy!
I took a closer look at Xenoverse 2. Saw some good and a lot of bad. Good being the graphics, updated combo system, and its connection to the current iteration of the anime itself. The bad being the rest of the game. The fights are still good. But all that dialogue.. if the shows Saved By The Bell and Dragon Ball had a child, it would be Xenoverse 2. Why high school? Why do I have to talk to all these people and upgrade rank with mofos I beat in the very beginning of the first Xenoverse? I know I said Yamcha did well in Fighter Z but not Xenoverse. Not at all in Xenoverse. Have he and Krillin suddenly become the shyt? I doubt it. Not with all the visibly stronger people running around in the game. I want to play the game, but I don't want to sit through all that talking or that background music. Vegeta's got a tight ass though? Wait, what?! Did you read that or did I type it? You must be seeing things.. like dat ass.
Returning to Moscow though? That's definitely going to happen. Going back into the tunnels, hiding in the dark, and throwing knives into the backs of the unsuspecting sounds like fun to me. Of course, its not all fun and games. Not everything is human or easily taken down with a knife to the back. I really want to find out how it all turns out.
