Topic: Kongregate / What is your least favorite (popular-ish) Game on Kongregate?

Epic Battle Fantasy. I didn’t enjoy the concept of it in the slightest.

Topic: Kongregate / "Hey! Are you running an ad blocker?"

The Kongregate developers made the conscious choice to have adverts which were time-consuming, delaying or irritating. If the adverts were just banners at the top of the page, I’d have no problem. But when ads become a hindrance, if I as a person am offered a free, simple solution to that hindrance, I will take it. :|

Case in point? Starwish.

Agreed. It doesn’t have to be long and complex, as long as it’s there, unlike EBF1 and EBF2. I really don’t see the appeal of those, but that isn’t the topic of the thread. Honestly it’s difficult to say what I’d like in a constructive way because the thing I’d look out for would be something completely original – something unique to this RPG instead of the hundreds of others. Make the bosses, if they exist, completely new – we’ve got through the era of status affects and decent AI by now.

And don’t make it a game where you can just stock on potions and revives to get through any boss.

Topic: General Gaming / lab of the dead ending

I had already found every reaction (except spoiler warning things to do with human meat, obviously) when Wood came (I grinded early, expecting the game’s ending to be coming) and I did the most advanced and passive I could think of – I don’t think there’s an alternate ending because even a zombie playing a guitar wasn’t enough to make him happy. :|

Topic: General Gaming / lab of the dead ending

I think there was an ending – the ending was just that he failed. The end “cutscene” if you want to call it that was SPOILER WARNING when the scientist killed Wood and his men. That point basically served as the end of the game. But because the dev probably intended for people to continue with the game after the main storyline ended, the game didn’t “finish” there. It also says “continued in road of the dead” ^^.

Topic: General Gaming / Zelda Vs. Oblivion

I’m not a Zelda fan so it would be hard for me to be neutral. I have played it, and I didn’t get into it. Oblivion gripped me in a completely different way. Although Zelda has a nice theme^^

I can’t believe Zelda has so many votes. Oblivion screws it over completely!

Topic: General Gaming / Reviving in an RPG

Originally posted by vesperbot:

I am for second, with the ability to combine both worlds, aka harder battles with no revive (Diablo 2 Hell hardcore solo anyone?) I am against one-hit KOs, as they are to either be foreseen or interrupted, which reduce them to a threat if you’re able to avoid it, or a subject for a rage quit. I am against situations where a glimpse of bad luck results in a death (a missed Break vs Omen in Sonny 1, for example), I think every challenge a game is able to throw at the player should be avoidable or beatable.

Pretty much sums it up, although personally, whether or not there is revive doesn’t really affect me. One thing I will comment on is the lore behind revives which someone mentioned earlier – generally, people say that enemies in RPGs are very bad at killing – they only wound the characters, and revives treat KOs rather than deaths.

If there are revives, then there has to be some sort of system to ensure that they can only be used sparingly. I hate how people just go into bosses with 100+ phoenix downs or w/e and turn a difficult boss into a breeze.

Topic: General Gaming / Skyrim Vs. Mass effect 3

I am anticipating ME3 more based on the fact that it’s more of a continuation of a storyline – and what an Ending ME2 had! Skyrim will be awesome, but I think having followed Commander Shepard for so long, I feel more connected to the Mass Effect series.

I found it extremely easy. I think the new things make the game’s difficulty too low.

Topic: General Gaming / Mardek 3 vs. Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Mardek 3. No wall of text, but I prefer a game with an actual story instead of senseless fights. I really don’t find EBF3 enjoyable.

Topic: General Gaming / Hardest game boss you've ever fought?

I agree that some FF superbosses are intense. But so were some of the regular bosses like Barthandelus.

I also think that the Archdemon from DragonAge Origins was tough lol, but that’s because I didn’t realise that rogues could repair the catapults!

I also thought Saren from Me1 was a challenge.

Is this going to be another game like Mesiria 3 that was highly anticipated but never had a Kong release? Those other sites suck :/

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Common MARDEK Misconceptions

Clavis was a guise used by Qualna. An illusory form. Qualna states during the ending, after the King’s death, that he created the fictitious character to use as a form so that Rohoph wouldn’t instantly attack him, and so that he could communicate with him.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / the ending of mardek 3...

If you look at Qualna’s dreamstone at the end, it clearly shows that he had no intention of harming Rohoph. I don’t think Rohoph is intentionally evil, but I think the crystal has made him paranoid and so self-righteous that he is unable to see his own flaws, such as his condescending nature, betrayal of Qualna and his lack of respect for Mardek and Elwyen towards the end.
