Whatwhatwhat? I got banned here before for dirty jokes lol. I saw a screenshot of it by a reviewer though that said, "You a******! We can't go there, it's burning! We need to find another way."-something like that. Very nice use of breaking the 4th wall, and it also cracked me up. xD
I might consider playing it, but only AFTER I'm done with the classic games that's been piling up.
Well, the only 'old' graphics that I couldn't stand is 8-bits. Yeah many people who are used to xp/vx graphics can't stand 2k. But I'm sure, in the long run, no one will be THAT shallow to only care for a game's appearance. I mean, you don't see someone loving the game just because it has good graphics. It's like,
"Hey! I've finally finished xxx! The game's really great!"
"What's so great about it?"
"...so, you're telling me you've just played a game because of decent graphics even if the story is mediocre, and probably boring? What did you do, stare at the screen for 10+ hours to appreciate the scenery?"
^see? That sounded stupid. I'm sure Aveyond or any other commercial rpgs have nice graphics but they will be a forgettable game.
I'm a 75% story/gameplay/humor, 25% graphics person. So if the game's story REALLY suck, then the gamemaker should make it up for gameplay (tactical for me), and humor (I love comedy). I don't care if the graphics' chipsets are ripped or old, if the map isn't spacey/too crowded and 'does what it does', then I'm completely satisfied with it.
K, so back to TTHW. The most outstanding feature of the game isn't the great characters/plotline but the CRAZY amount of playability! No, being "married" to different characters does NOT mean 'non-linearity' *coughs*. What I'm talking about is even the tad bit of your action will the affect the whole scene you'll have when you meet said character in the future.
It makes the game realistic and will keep you entertain. Unlike some linear games, like, if you've met this character, later on he'll probably say the same dialogue whether or not you've met him. That makes it boring and bland. The messed up plotline and the funny characters are also the biggest factors to this game.
Also, did I mention this game have lots of humor? And the "romance" ISN'T cheesy! =D
Yeah the summary looks common. But it's hard to say more in the summary without spoiling the plotline.
Oh and some of the classics are The Way, ABL and Aurora Wing. Last one is criminally underrated btw.
That's understandable, coming from someone who's gaming experience only revolves around Aveyond.
