Which is a bit of a shame since the card gameplay looks sufficient to sustain multiple games all on its own.

@trogdor my bff just got that game. She loves it and says it’s one of the most interesting story-mechanic interactions she’s seen in a while (I’m a TTRPG gamer, she’s a computer gamer)
I don’t know if that’s different than what you see but she seems to have a different opinion
 
no ok it's not that I was saying it was a bad game XD
what I was talking about was two different things really
the game changes it's own mechanics and you are expected to change the way you play it (I don't want to spoil the ways how)
and the characters are,... well not always the nicest people
again without spoiling it but basically the story conceit is that every card, or at least every card that has a face or like a human name or a name you named it yourself (because you will have named it yourself when you get the opportunities to make your own cards for story reasosns)
but all of those cards at least are people
and it brings up to me the ethics of how some of the characters treat the cards (even some who are or were cards at one point themselves)
the game looks really good honestly, it's one of those meta games that isn't just the same game the whole time
it changes it's dynamic while you are playing it and progressing and I actually really like that kinda of thing at least as an idea
the part at the end though is mostly a story part after you have beaten the acts of the game that are actually partly about gameplay
at that point it's more like an interactive movie almost than a game is all
I wasn't saying the whole game was like that or even that it was a bad thing
I guess technically that is three things
one was the overall way the game works, one was how some of the characters seem like jerks, and then one was specifically just vaguely how the ending of the game at least seems to me like it still gives you some gameplay but that gameplay no longer influences or drives the story at that specific point like it does do for the rest of the game
and anyway that ending, at least to me, makes sense
everything is unraveling to a point that both you and the other characters in the game have set in motion towards and when your plays no longer matter it's because of everything you have already done that did matter that it's gotten to that point
if that makes any sense which if you haven't played or watched the game maybe it doesn't XD
 
6:45 AM
@trogdor it makes sense
Haven’t played the game but got a detailed recap from my bff who finds the dynamics fascinating
 
yeah I would agree with that
 
She did say the ending could use work though so that’s probably something similar
 
the ending was,... definitely weird?
but I at least think that was intentional
 
I don’t know, I just synthesize everything she says and sometimes it makes sense. She lets me talk about yarn, I let her talk about video games
 
really the whole game is weird, the ending itself just changes how it's weird in a way unprecedented before by other parts of the game
lol
symbiotic relationships are good
XD
 
6:54 AM
She’s my absolute best friend and I love her (platonically but very much so)
 
7:24 AM
sounds very much like a symbiotic relationship to me
very low key I want to make this into a thing, where people call the relationship with their good friends symbiotic relationships XD
 
Wait a minute. Which of us is Tom Hardy and which is Tom Hardy doing a funny voice?
 
huh? XD
 
Hardy played Eddie Brock and also voiced Venom in the recent movies.
 
ooooh
look I'm horrible with names and I know I have mentioned that and demonstrated it to you live
:P
anyway I think we are more like that shrimp and fish pair that builds a pit of sand together XD
but then we still have to decide who the shrimp is and who the fish is
and I forget who does the digging and who does the lookout duty
I would call it a house but it's literally like, a pit of sand just to hide from predators in
they don't even have a kitchen XD
or you know, you could agree to doing the funny voice
XD
 
7:52 AM
Yeeeah, I think most people would agree I'm the funny voice in this relationship.
 
well mostly like, I don't like to make funny voices soooo
if that's the way you want to categorize it I'm not being that one so I kinda get shoehorned into being the other one
XD
if we just happen to be talking about which of us is the "weird one" I'm afraid we both ended up as goo Harvey with the funny voice somehow
in fact philosophically I would argue everyone is goo Harvey with the funny voice, they are just different levels of aware of it

@trogdor did you saw Pony Island by chance? Start different, but in the end I realize that this game is very close as a concept
 
 
2 hours later…
8:26 PM
I watched a little of it
 
 
1 hour later…
9:27 PM
it's possible in fact that I watched a full playthrough really
it was such a long time ago I can't remember much detail about it
