    I'm constantly reminded of when Arin tried to get an inspiration point in their D&D episodes. He's really not fit for suspension of disbelief games. So basically a huge chunk of RPG's.

  24. GeekLegion

    GeekLegionUukausi sitten

    If Arin REALLY dislikes a game this much, they outta just stop playing it. This just hurts. The game is nonsensical, yes, but there is a silly explanation for what’s happening. Of course the game is dumb, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be interesting at the same time.

    Junko: "And that's all it took for you to start killing each other. You're nothing but bloodthirsty animals." Okay, but you're talking to the people who _didn't_ do any murdering. Several of whom were quite adamant in their refusal to kill. Really, only about a third of the participants were actually killers by the end. And _you're_ the one who killed her sister in cold blood.

It didn't seem like they had to actually solve much related to the events leading up to the killing game...

    @my site To Arin's credit, he never gave up and in the end, he doesn't shit all over the game - even states that he actually had a good time and is looking forward to more... after a nice looooong break. And yeah, if it wasn't for Dan, I would've jumped ship long ago. This was my introduction to this series too and it convinced me to start the sequel on my own. Am loving it so far~

  62. my site

    my siteUukausi sitten

    @Key Strix It's like he thinks he is smarter than the game, and because he hates it, tries to point out plot holes, only for the game to slap him down. 1 is pretty air tight, but you are absolutely right about the 2nd game. My favorite of the series. Honestly, the only reason I kept watching was for Dan's reactions. I really hope he plays 2.

  63. Key Strix

    Key StrixUukausi sitten

    @my site No idea why Arin has so much trouble 'reading the room' sometimes. To make it worse, he even has trouble grasping the fact that solving mysteries for yourself is only part of the game. The other part is convincing the others and that does require repeating info sometimes. Not to say this game is even close to perfect though - Arin does have valid points at times. I'm playing 2 right now and I've met some minor frustrations, but nothing truly horrible. The writing and story really does kick up in quality and I can't wait for Arin to meet his soul mate there~

  64. my site

    my siteUukausi sitten

    RIGHT?! I mean Jesus, they lose their memories, are locked in a school where they are forced to kill each other, then at end of everything, are told everyone they've ever loved may possibly be dead. I'd be more shocked if they DIDNT act they way they did.

    so are we all on the same page here? Junko has LITERALLY ZERO WAY to enforce all the bullshit she's threatening, and everyone's just... going along with it for no reason other than escalating tension for the plot. Arin and Dan are right when they keep asking "why aren't they just kicking the shit out of her"

  72. Alja

    AljaUukausi sitten

    This is. Quite possibly. The stupidest game and story I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing in my entire life. The writing is bad, and they should feel bad. And, honestly, the only reason why I've stuck with this series is because it's a god awful train wreck. This isn't a game. It's a cringy conversation simulator.

    I think the thing with the air pollution is that the other people lived in the pollution through its progression so their bodies grew accustomed to it, whereas the ultimates were stuck in the school where the air was pure. It's kinda like when you're cooking something and you grow accustomed to the smell, whereas someone who just walks into the smell will be more susceptible to it.
