There was a similar game released just recently, but held more in the 2D sprite style of classic Fallout games. It had something to do with big meat monsters that want to be more human, or something of that nature. Does anyone remember what it was called?

No, I'm afraid that's not the one. It was really very reminiscent of the early Fallout titles, it even had that dialogue window. I remember a screenshot involving a big blobby Cthulhu thing poking out of what looked like a bunker entrance or a mine and a female PC talking to it. Sorry I can't really give any more detail than that.

There's a few screenshots on Death Trash that seem to match what you're describing here, but I don't know about it having the Fallout dialogue window. It's also not out yet.

It does. I've already run into two of them. I think I am 20-30 percent into the game. I have not asked Creepy Stalker Guy yet.

Nioh 1 increased your medicine capacity in a given region based on how many of those little green hat guys you managed to find in its mission areas, so if you spent a lot of time searching for them, seeing a sharp drop in your available elixirs after going to a new region would be normal. That shouldn't ever drop you below 3, though. However, you can also just straight-up run out of elixirs, Bloodborne style, because they're an actual item that is kept in your storage and restocked from there when you go to a shrine. You do not get them for free like Estus. Might be that's what happened here.

Wuxiaworld has a bunch of translated xianxia novels for free, just check out a few and see if you like them. Fair warning, though: a lot of them are incredibly bad. Xianxia is kinda like urban fantasy romance novels in that 99% of it is bargain bin genre writing for people who are super into it and don't read anything else.

Sums it up, really. I'm currently reading I Shall Seal The Heavens and it's apparently considered one of the better ones. I would compare it to Piers Anthony novels in that it's honestly not good, but kind of funny at times and a decent enough time-waster.

that is the worst possible comparison you could make because piers anthony likes to put pedophilia in his books as a good thing, and as far as I know none of the xianxia books are that kind of garbage
Yes, I know, the guy is a total creep, but Piers Anthony has written other books than just the Xanth series, you know. I'm about twenty chapters in and I'd put what I've read of it so far about on the level of his Incarnations of Immortality series, in terms of quality. This isn't really the place to discuss this, but if you want I can PM you some excerpts. It's fairly light but non-skeevy reading.

Hey, I was like twelve and I found it in the fantasy section of my local small-town library. It's not like it's my fault that the internet didn't even exist yet, so maybe calm the gently caress down and don't shout at me like I'm endorsing him for it.

I think I mean more of the general style and vibe. The gameplay is mostly exploration and some visual novel fare. I havenít completed it but the plot is compelling and you can dig in as much as you want to before going to the trial and trying to put forth a conclusion. Itís very cool.
Alright, I might give it a shot, then. I kind of liked Danganronpa in concept, but the sheer aggressive stupidity of the premise and the plot just ruined any kind of enjoyment I could've gotten out of the Ace Attorney-style clue collecting.

Yeah the story of 13 Sentinels seems to be designed to be as opaque as possible. You need to jump back and forth between thirteen protagonists, some of which go by different names depending on the circumstances. There's time travel, alternate universes, and memory rewriting. The story is told out of order. At one point, there is a scene that takes place in 2024, followed by a scene " six months later..." which takes place in 1985.

I'm saying that you'll need to pay attention to piece it together... Assuming that it ever does come together. I'm several hours in, and it looks like it'll make sense eventually, but I can't say for sure.

I think it's understandable to be annoyed by this, not everyone likes to revisit games. If you know that this is how you approach games, it seems like the most reasonable solution would be to simply only buy games at least half a year after initial release as a matter of principle, though. It would be less annoying to you and you could just enjoy the game as it was intended.

If you wait for the Switch release, I imagine it will already have all those things, so it's probably the best of both worlds to you.

That said, I'm kind of in the same boat of kind of wanting to wait for most games. Asscreed Valhalla is coming out soon and I really want it, but I know if I wait 6 months they'll have a "GOTY edition" or "gold collection" or whatever that will be the game and all the DLC for the same price I would have paid at release without the DLC.

A lot of companies are just betting you won't be patient and it's a good bet. Hell I'm reasonably certain I'll still get asscreed because of how much I adored odyssey.

They've added a number of mechanics since I started playing attention to the game, such as the new Yaoguai race (ascended animals who try to find enlightenment, basically) but the game is effectively feature-complete. Everything is completely playable and you can take a sect from dirt-farming to godhood and never notice it's not quite version 1.0 yet.
