Speaking of "iredeemable"

I'm watching a playthrough of Yakuza 3, which is widely considered far and away the worst in the series...

But dang, I honestly cannot see why. This game's been pretty dang solid so far! Maybe the gameplay's not good or something? It is lacking in a few areas, (The karaoke is kinda weak, the gameplay seems a little sluggish, the sound mixing is a little off) but it's really neat. I'm wondering if things fall off a cliff later...

How did you know I am here?!? XD

tfw you kill the final boss of the main story in three hits... on the highest difficulty setting.
"Hardest Musou" my ass.

Hopefully, the other final boss can put up more of a fight, because that was flippin' pathetic, Mr. Orochi X.
Then again... I guess me maxing out Sterkenburg prior to completing Chapter 4 (where the original Warriors Orochi 3 ends and the Ultimate stuff begins) is partly to blame for that. XD

Also, I went full Wu stan

Cuz this is gonna be my main team from here on out. I only wish Sun Ce's moveset was a little better, because his crowd control is horrifyingly awful.

Tigers, move out!
Or something.

Also, good morning, Wraith and Shrimpy!

Structral Analysis

By using this magic on the forum i was able to see inside and the outside of the forum software

The innermost programming

This is the data that both he and i saw

A world full of zeroes and ones

Yet to me they are more like readable details

I am sorry, Dragon of Planeptune, but please keep me company,

Until my references run out!

I wonder if you will get this xD

This does look familiar somehow, but I can't place it at the moment.

Weapon skills (you have to get these yourself):

Windslay: Deals percentage-based damage (based on their max HP), and can attack through enemy guard, makes you able to kill goons in one blow; increases damage against enemy officers.
Echo: Enemies who are hit send out shockwaves.
Typhoon: Your regular combo chain sends out small whirlwinds, which increases your attack range.
Brilliance: Every attack gets elemental properties if your Musou (Special Attack) gauge is full (which is easy to do, just don't use specials)
Absorption: You regain HP with every attack you land.
Tri-Element: Combines Flame, Ice, and Bolt elements (Flame: enemies take residual damage after they are hit, Ice: enemies get frozen in place for a short time, Bolt: enemies are stunned and take percentage-based damage)
Agility: Increases attack speed.
Courage: Increases damage against enemy officers (named enemies, in other words).

Items:
Mystic Bells: draws dropped items towards you.
Belt of Vitality: Regenerate HP over time
Charm of Alacrity: Increases walking speed (hence the 234 speed)
Amulet of Protection: decreases damage dealt by enemy officers.
Tengjia Armor: decreases damage by enemy projectiles
Bow of Life: support attacks don't deplete Musou gauge.

RIP difficulty, in other words.
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate can be challenging when it wants to be, and it can be the hardest Musou game when it wants to be... but it's also the easiest to break. XD

Absorption would do the trick on its own, but I didn't have any other item to equip on him, because once you hit 999 in a stat, stat-increasing items don't do anything anymore. And the other non-stat increase items are kinda bad, so I slapped the Belt of Life on there. XD

A little bit of both, honestly.
You do have to grind quite a bit for all these abilities and to get everything maxed out, so it does feel rewarding that you can effortlessly tear through everything with a maxed out character like this even on the highest difficulty.
On the other hand, it naturally kills off any semblance of challenge the game has, so if you want to keep the difficulty alive, this means not using your maxed out character(s) anymore. Sure, this means you can give someone else a shot, but... if you're like me and know your favorites, and max out your favorites, well... XD

But at least I'm certain to adore Coldsteel!

Gameplaywise it is an improvement to Sky.

Cold Steel I has similarities to Persona 3 in terms of day organisation and learning at school.

If you like these things, you should like it.

best Solution then would be to not grind, no?

That is definitely true, yeah. XD

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is a bit of an odd case in this regard, since it runs into a bit of an issue: it forces you to grind sometimes, if you want all the characters (and you have to get all of them to get the true ending and unlock chapter 5).
Namely, there are some side missions where you unlock new characters, which you can only get by increasing friendship between specific characters, usually three at a time, which means you'll be replaying a lot of the earlier stages if you haven't been using any of them (and with the game having 140-something characters, the chances of that are pretty dang high).
I say earlier stages, because a level 1 character cannot survive in any post-chapter 1 stage (chapter 2 if you're on easy).
Which also means that, if you want to use a character you get in, say, Chapter 3, you'll have to replay a lot of the earlier stages to get them caught up to your current team, so you'll have to grind anyway.

If you don't grind at all, you'll be using characters you get in chapter 1, MAYBE the beginning of chapter 2 and that's it. This is kinda why I criticise the game for its bloated roster, since you can't realistically use about 2/3rds of them, because after a while, enemies will be too strong to make using level 1 characters safe, even on normal difficulty.

Although yes, you DO get something akin to Bonus EXP, but chances are you're using that on your main team.

In this case, however, this was me wanting to max out Sterk. XD

If i understood you right...

Characters you unlock later will be at lvl1?

Who thought that's a good idea?

That is an excellent question.
But yeah, every character you unlock, no matter at which point in the game you are, starts out at level 1.
And predictably, characters at level 1 are... really, really weak. Like... the "you'll get one-shot when enemy characters use their specials" kind of weak... even in the very first stage of the game. And enemy characters have a nasty habit of spamming them.
Granted, if it's a character from Dynasty Warriors, you can usually dodge, because those specials have a very specific tell when they happen.
When it's a Samurai Warriors character, though... you're dead. Because those have little wind up, and this can hit you right the heck out of nowhere.

Result: Snowball with first 4 units lol

Sayaka Miki from Madoka, a girl who wanted to be, you guessed it, a Hero.

And like all Hero wannabes, she suffers lol.

Madoka is written by the same dude who wrote F/Z, so some themes are shared.

Movie 4 when?

Aww... So it's kinda in the gold spot between laughably bad and actually good, so it's just completely irredeemable?

Depends which one you play.

Birthright is just zzzzz the whole plot.

Revelation is the same but with a couple Conquest tier moments, mainly the entire idea behind the plot other than unite the kingdoms or whatever.

I would describe Conquest as laughably bad though.

Though... she raised ALL the death flags prior to her murder, so her dying first wasn't really a surprise. The surprise was the circumstance in which it happened.

ATTENTION FEH HATERS

You can now vote for the capturable bosses in Fates for CYL, if we decide to push one to piss them off that might be fun.

I recommend Haitaka, but that might not be angering enough.
