Undertale

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

Alphys I thought was cute and I liked her.

Hotland is a little overlong on replays, though, which makes me downrate Alphys and Metaton.

I saw a comic once implying it only looked big because he was hiding so many ketchup bottles. I tried to find it, but...

... do NOT, ever, Google or search on tumblr "sans stomach." Just don't. God. Fuck. No. Why.

(Hiding ketchup bottles sounds pretty accurate, I suspect that's where the "blood" comes from in the end of Geno)

Don't get your hopes up! He said he'd like to start something new this year but it would take infinitely long.

I guess that's in dog years though.

I know, but previously I was worried he'd be happy with the money he made and might not want to start something again. Just the fact that he has something in his head makes me happy.

I do think it will be easier to find the time to make another game as a millionaire.

So the same person who made Aftertale is a crazy sonuva who made this concept of a creepy vigilante glitch sans whose self-given purpose is to eradicate AUs and other "glitches" in the Undertale multiverse.

And it's so ridiculously far off from canon and feeds off of every other fan-made concept and I LOVE that people have gotten so off the wall creative with this fandom. It's insane but mostly awesome.

(Also it's not another emo sans so that's good)


PS: this has also been a cool thing so far: http://tratserenoyreve.tumblr.com/post/ ... inues-here

The anthropomorphic flower got a pretty solid treatment here.

The art here is pretty amazing.

The error sans thing is super jarring to look at for too long (I know it's intentional) but it's an interesting concept

Other comic is ... interesting. I'm personally not a fan of the artstyle but it's good! Looking forward to see where it goes.

Thanks for giving me stuff to look at Esu ;w;

Some undertale-related idle musings:

So I was playing Pillars of Eternity (a baldur's gate-like RPG released last year by obsidian), and it got me thinking about undertale.

The game is chock-full with subquests, and in one of them, a barbarian asks you to sacrifice a baby. There are three ways to complete the quest: 1- you sacrifice the baby, get your reward. Easy-peasy. 2- You say NO, and kill the barbarian - however, he is in a room full of enemies, so it is a very hard battle, and you get a heavy reputation penalty in the village for killing everyone. 3- you poison the barbarian. If you do that, you have to pass an EXTREMELY hard attribute test (as in, you basically have to metagame to pass it), or you are caught and it reverts back to scenario 2.

There are a lot of people on the internet complaining about that side quest, arguing that the game forces people to be baby murderers.

But, after playing Undertale, my mind goes to option 4. You just don't complete the quest, and forgo the little extra XP. In fact, Poe is full of self-contradicting side quests: if you complete every single side quest that is put in front of you, you will end up as a very unpredictable person. There is more than enough XP and items to go around, so it is perfectly valid to mold your character by only taking the side quests that you agree with. I find that cool.

(In fact, I found out that there IS a fourth option: you can take the baby, but not sacrifice it, leaving the quest uncompleted - the game will mention that choice in the end-game, when it describes what happened with your character after the adventure is done. This is never acknowledged before the end-game, though, and the "quest" marker sits there, blinking, taunting the Flowey within us)

I think that applies to any game with rampant sidequesting and morality options. Currently playing some Skyrim and that comes to mind.

Sure, but it sure puts the "I must complete every sidequest" mentality in check.

On the other hand, I kinda remember that BG I/II did not have purely evil sidequests. They had "evillish" ways of completing some sidequests, but I don't think there was any quest where the only option was either commit an evil act, or skip the quest altogether.

Would you recommend PoE to someone who liked BG/BG2/Planescape (not crazy about IWD) but would like some modernization?
