Actually, the more I think about it, the more I'm sad that this video exists: the big point he leads with is that the game is great in part because it does such a good job of setting your initial expectations, but none of that actually fucking works if you go into this thinking you're about to witness the second coming of Christ, but he's a video game this time!

how can one picture be so perfect and accurate, while still being so very likely to convey a completely wrong impression to someone who doesn't know what it's about

Gotta respect that thematic commitment.

In other news, finally got ending C. Gonna stop there for a bit, I think. Wanna wait for the DLC before I go too much further.

Newbie: If you have ending C you're already at ending D/E. Just go do the other final option.

So I finally played this!

It's as good as everyone says, and hearing and reading about a few of the things that I missed even after 90%+ sidequest completion is just sustaining that sweet, sweet depressive low for even longer.

jesus christ i wiped pascal's memory but i didn't go back to the village after to find out pascal will now sell you THE PARTS OF THE DEAD CHILDREN

I should go back and finish. I was planning to wait to get Ending E until the DLC came out, but now that it's available I can't afford it...

It sounds like the DLC is pretty strictly just bonus combat arenas / goofy bosses and cosmetic items; I considered it, but man, $13 is kind of a lot for that.
