How does the story compare with Extra or Extra/CCC?

It's better than Extra (it's really not hard to be), but worse than CCC if you're looking for a solid narrative. If you're there for jokes and to read Nasu write sci-fi, though, you'll love it.

Seriously, if I were to describe Extella in one image it would be:

Yep. Nero considers Liz a rival in the realm of spotlight whoring, while IIRC Caster sorta sympathizes with Liz's situation but also thinks she's really dumb.

Don't know how EMIYA feels about her, though.

Tamamo bullies the poo poo out of Liz, truly worst boss and waifu.

I'd assume emiya's opinion is like robin's, since the meme is the two are super similar in personality.

Extella (and its hypothetical preceding Fate/Extra route) is one long story of Tamamo getting owned by the way.

This Nero favoritism is bullshit. :negative:

I mean Tamamo's kind of a shithead so I'm willing to accept it even though I like her too

It seems it falls upon me to do the Emiya stuff in CCC after I finish the Gilgamesh playthrough

Yeah, Tamamo's my least favorite Extra character. And pretty low generally.

I can't wait to get to the Altera story though. I just hate that so much stuff is coming out to distract me from this.

The game actually has a pretty dense amount of plot and terminology as would be expected of a Fate game at this point. It also requires you know poo poo about Extra and CCC if you wanna know what the deal was with certain characters here and there. It favors gameplay of course but there's a significant amount of cutscenes and dialogue.

That's good enough for me. Though it'll be another couple months before I can get it, since I don't have a PS4 yet.

I'm happy this F/GO event drops pages, because I need a bunch for Waver and Merlin's skills (and those skills benefit significantly from being upgraded).

Translation wise, it looks like Extella is about what everyone expected: pretty good overall, but a lot of tiny lore-related details got messed up because the translators aren't Fate supernerd enough to get them.

Changing Sefar to Sephyr was pretty bad though.

I can't think of a reason to play it if you're not already a fan of the characters.

Does knowing the characters add more to it or is everything there relying on you knowing the details?

e: Actually I should also ask if this would be a good introduction game then.

The plot is probably just as absurd whether you're familiar with the Fate series or not. As musou games go, it is competent but unremarkable. The real question is how much you want to hold hands with red Saber.

One thing about type moon stories is their absurdly :spergin: level world building made pretty much so the protagonist can look cool breaking some rule of the universe. Also Nasu's humanist philosophy.

The fact that there are worse designs (like Jack) doesn't make Eliza good. Her brave outfit from FGO is especially terrible.

Also I started Tamamo's stuff today and she and Karna feel a bit lacking in comparison to Nero and Nameless but that may just be coming off of characters I had levelled a lot with almost all of their skills and having to work my way back up.

I'm enjoying Extella even though I'm new to Fate games. Whoever that was that was trying to dissuade me from getting this is a jerk.

The plot makes no sense at all and is dumb as poo poo but it's a fun dumb so whatever. Nero is a conceited rear end in a top hat and it's hilarious.

Jesus I got a second CE drop.

Too bad I guess that the quests aren't challenging enough to consider LB'ing it yet to fit in combat CE's? Is there a benefit for LB'ing the +3 CE? It seems like to me 5x 3 to base drop + a 100% Support CE seems like the trick unless LB mainly benefits people with more +100% CE's?

Has anyone crunched the numbers on the QP? Is it better or comparable or worse than the 40 QP quest? I'm just wondering if I should farm for QP while I can.

InfinityComplex

Only LB CEs once you're done with an event, never do it while you're farming. Having multiple significantly outweighs an LB event CE. However if you have a definite surplus (5+), go for it.
