END AUTOMATED TEXT. THREAD CREATOR INFORMATION BELOW.
The trilogy of the most popular dark visual novel / whatever you want to call it series in the West is now complete! Until a 4th game comes along.
BTW did anyone choose to kill a team initially or did we all make sure they cooperated and spread the votes? I haven't seen what happens if the teams take another option...
Actually it'd be really interesting to see what happens if the vote goes completely opposite...everyone votes for the other team than the one specified by the note...the vote is still split, everyone still lives, but they all look like dicks because they all tried to betray each other and failed. lol.
The way I play this (and VLR) is to pick what I would normally pick in that scenario each time, then only go back and see the other choices once I hit a "wall." In that case, I stuck with the note at the beginning.
I was also wondering what would happen if everyone voted for the opposite team and still saved each other that way. Hmm...
This game got under my skin last night. I ended up getting one of D-Team's endings (D-1 END, I think), which was actually really cool and maybe the first time the game really clicked with me as a Zero Escape title. But amidst the drama and tragedy and violence I was nervous throughout the whole thing. What set it all off was casually clicking the Status icon in the menu...WHAT THE HECK, GAME!? Why are the status profiles so freaky looking?? I typically play this in bed at night with headphones on and all the lights out (and my wife often asleep next to me) and I was pretty rattled by the whole experience. I guess that's...good? But this one seems even more horror-focused than 999, which means I can only take it in chunks.
Overall, I think I'm enjoying it though. The presentational issues aren't quite as bad when you get really involved in what's going on. I'm hoping the other teams have equally compelling stories though--D-Team is definitely my favorite right now.
My game FINALLY came in, and the watch did not come with it. A couple weeks back they said the watch would be sent separately so I wonder what took them so long to send the game? Aaaaaanyway, I hope to dive in soon! And after all the fun conversation is done too! YAY!
Started on Q-Team's set of fragments. Picked the one that leads you to Zero's study with a lovely collection of deadly weapons.
Needless to say everyone ends up pointing them at each other.
So I gotta make a choice on who to kill.
Kill Zero? Nah too easy. Won't let me. Kill Akane and spare the team? Nope can't access that choice. I hate all these people. Use the grenade launcher to kill Q. Maybe EVERYONE will get blown up. Nope, need to know Q's real name.
Ugh fine. Kill Mira then. She annoys me. NOPE. Eric sacrifices himself. THEN Mira kills Q anyway.
I finally make a legit choice and the game does the exact freaking opposite of what I wanted! Fuck you game.
