The Miracle From The West
What's in a name? Names are power. Imagine a shackle so perfect in its simplicity. A brand we wear until the day we die. It's a wonder how much power such a small thing has.

Sherlock Holmes if he degenerate
It's funny because Holmes was a heroin addict
who wasn't in that time, sweaty
Cocaine was his main thing, I don't even remember him taking heroin, although he did pose as a heroin addict at one point.
The two couldn't be further apart. Sherlock Holmes operated through logic and deduction, whilst Harry was famous for his unorthodox methods and being a brilliant interrogator.
>Sherlock Holmes operated through logic and deduction
so can Harry if you plump up his brain with INT
>implying Logic, Visual Calculus, Encyclopedia and Inland Empires together don't make "logic and deduction" with a side of "seeing crimes in a way other investigators dont"
throwing in Inland Empire just means the Pale leaks into the holes in his brain more
Inland Empire isn't Pale, it's overactive imagination and things Harry already knows blurred through a lens of absurdism
no, it's literally the Pale leaking into Harry's brain and giving him future visions. The portrait is even a map of the isolas.
That isn't how fucking Pale works and the devs themselves called it imagination
that is literally how the Pale works
Oh, it's you.
Its secondary canon admittedly considering its never explained in game, but given many things in this concept art/worldbuilding do match how they're presented in the game, it can be assumed that until proven otherwise its a pretty good indicator of how The Pale works.
You look like a fucking clown, Harry.
I try. It's the only way to make the bitter pill go down.
Finally got this while it was on sale and I can’t overstate how disappointed I was. That’s what happens when you fall for the hype. Stupid trumpets blaring constantly. It’s like the goal of the devs was to annoy the shit out of you. Plus they let you save scum so the entire game is ultimately pointless because you literally don’t even have to put points into any skills. I was passing shit at like 3% chance
>Instrument of Surrender
You never heard a funeral march in your life, have you?
I don’t want it blasting in my fucking ears for hours on end
How else are you supposed to know you have a hangover?
You're right it was terrible
Based retard. I bet you need help
Putting your pants on in the morning
If you weren't so terrified by the concept of failure, and bothered to actually play, you'd realise you don't have to do that.
I’m not terrified of “failure” im terrified of buying a game and being locked out of content because of a literal dice roll.
Like literally, dice roll. It shows you the dice on screen
You get just as much, and often better, content through failure.
Your an low wit.
You're locked out of content by succeeding. Failing checks and then retrying them is the central mechanic of the game. Some checks are better if you fail them. Just let it go, fail some, and if you run out of skill points to retry, there are others way to reset them.
>FOMO about being "locked out of content"
I genuinely feel bad for you. It's not a healthy attitude to have toward such things. You're supposed to enjoy the experience of playing it, that's the real "content" of a game, not maximizing the number of areas you see or items you collect or whatever. I will charitably assume it's because a lot of modern games have trained your brain badly.
Despite all the thinking you've been doing, only 0.0001% of the games you played were actually enjoyed. It's too great a task to undertake alone with that feeble brain of yours. You were completely in need of our opinions for many of them, why not this one?
Taking on different opinions is a metaphysical sense of self-actualization. I am a collection of things constantly growing and learning from the contrasts that pervade my life. In a manner of speaking I am one of if not the most intelligent people considering my yearning for greater understanding. I am what you would call a vertiable student, a cypher on the path to truth. All I have are variations of truth occult or otherwise, eventually it will lead me to solidify into a statue of perfect symmetry confident in my knowledge forged by the vicissitudes of the ages.
Nobody asked gay
>locked out of content
I'll repeat: If you weren't so Terrified of failure, and bothered to actually play the game, you'd have realised that this isn't the case.
You are likely of below average intelligence.
>Plus they let you save scum so the entire game is ultimately pointless because you literally don’t even have to put points into any skills.
bro, then don't savescum
No greater way to fuck your entire enjoyment than to save scum. But I'm sure you're the type of midwife who only enjoys "RPGs" for the exploits and meta building
>buying something shilled by Gankereddit
This is your mind on Bethesda RPGs. The absolute state of Ganker.
>actually missing out on new story paths and character insights crafted by the devs only because your Fortnite instincts told you that game say bad = bad
>Plus they let you save scum so the entire game is ultimately pointless
Welcome to CRPGs, gay.
> Where's our last case, Kim?
> It's filed under W for "Waste of our lives, comma, a freakin' huge."
You are the miracle Harry
>we will never get a sequel of any kind
>not even a competent Harry being an undercover cop as La Puta Madre's peone
Harry would not be in any game set after the events of DE and with good reason
I would not have minded an actual action game with Harry being an undercover cop and it plays out like Deus Ex
Sure he has actualized himself and overcome his past, but his schizophrenic skills alone would be entertaining enough to carry a narrative
>We used to think it was a sphere.
The entire dialogue with Joyce was fucking surreal, hands down the most well written
I liked that she wanted the country to remain as a sovereign. I did not think she was a patriot, but it's not entirely out of left field either
She isn't. She's got Pale exposure on the same level as Paledriver but she's rich and has the training to prevent it totally overcoming her but the huge disconnect between being one of the people taking Revachol for all they can get and waxing poetic about how "we never should have given it up" should've clued you in on that.
And if not that, then the fact when you finally say goodbye to her you can call her either Rejoyce Layton or Joyce Messier. Because she's living two lives and one of them is not her own.
>"we never should have given it up"
I didn't know that either, I just assumed she was *old*. So that's what the Volto da Mar is supposed to do? Just abstract the psychological damage to an alternate persona?
Volta do Mar is a mental technique invented in the time of Dolores Dei involving poetry or something, intended to help humans retain their senses of self and other mental faculties during Pale exposure. Kim canonically has it as a FYS skill of his own, based on the player stats given to his buyable IRL jacket and shorts.
Even the geology is crazy, I love it.
>Kim's mind the moment he gets called cool once
Why does it say Pissf*ggot on your post?
Do you like piss?
Are you a f*ggot?
Harry really is more of a Fuck The World guy
How did you get Kim to wear it?
I'm always confused how people manage to get to this stage in the game without looking in the mirror. Is it on purpose? Why?
Don't need a face to detect.
look at the health and moral. They used cheats and didn't even bother to look in the mirror.
I never had strong enough stats to pass the mirror skill check
Too bad we will never get more of this world or characters as pretty much the entire creative team got fired. Count your blessings.
Kurvitz is taking the investors to court because they broke the law, we'll see how it turns out
I trust Kurvitz to write more kino. Going to keep an eye on this madlad.
I would play this game, but they made his sidekick gay and I'm uncomfortable around gays
The attributes' personas in this game freaks me the fuck out. They are too eerie tbh.
took me until the end credits to realize the motherfucker voicing a ton of the characters was one of the singers in my all time favorite band Sikth
A man of talent.
1 oz. tequila
1/2 oz blackberry brandy
Fill a Collins glass with ice. Add the tequila, and fill with orange juice. Top with blackberry brandy and stir lightly. Garnish with a cherry.
>1 bottle Tequila
>Drink until you forget her
That just makes me remember her more. Our drunk fuckfests were the thing of legends as I stumbled out of the dark half cocked and ready for her slovenly embrace round my emancipated frame.
>add anything else
What am I, a fucking Semenese?
how do i start talking like Disco Elysium narration?
Step one: Be black
No I mean the diction. Dark and broody and poetic with some complex words
Be more didactic.
Read more and try to write a little.
>try to write a little.
does posting on Ganker count?
Writing something by hand would be better, but the important part is retrieving what you read and synthetizing new stuff or similar expressions. You would be spotted quickly, I think. But you should try, anon. Writing can be fun intellectual exercise and you could become a banter king.
Just tell the guy to write. None of that other stuff. Write if you wanna write. Don't try to do it just write.
but do you mean by "just write" how can one just write without structure? Are you proposing i just put pen to paper and let my mind wander about ?
Not that anon, but just give up with a conclusion and genre and try to construct stunning in that base? Start short and see if you can do it?
No. I mean when you want to write then write. Never force it.
>Never force it.
Stephen King says different. In fact I'm fairly certain he said directly to GRRM's face that waiting for "inspiration" to write is a retards way of writing.
most writers say different. No one's saying force it, but they pretty much all say write every day even if you're not really feeling it or it comes out crap.
"Sit down and bang out X words a day whether you feel lit it or not" is pretty much the definition of "forcing" it. It's a skill like any other and that means doing it regularly whether you're 'inspired' or not.
Stephen king is a drug using hack. don't try to force writing most people don't care anyway, but if you force it then you'll eventually hate and resent what you create thinking you could do better.
well that's kind of the point, thinking you can do better encourages you to write more
That's why you should just write. Even if it's bad even if it's craven borderline unreadable shit. You getting the experience is more important than ruminating on whether or not it's good or not.
Record everything in 4 word blocks, splice together like a babby youtube commenter in his first day
I'm about to call Abigal and none of you can stop me
I specifically told you to NOT call Abigail
"YEAH I'M A PIG WHAT OF IT."
shit i'd play a sequel with Super Maximum Detective Cuno.
He has nearly done enough drugs to have the same powers as Harry.
I'd be pretty kino if you ask me
I dont remember
I encourage all Disco players to become writers.
Share your stories with each other, revel in the experience.
I love mystery stories but I've never had any ideas for a core mystery to write a story around
maybe just do murder mystery? It is standard because it is satisfying.
Yeah but the standardization is what makes it played out. Reach for different shit anon.
i agree, disco-bros can do better
I don't remember typing this so Go nuts anons.
I should keep writing. My friends like my work, but I've seen come up time and time again that an important key to my creative projects is to stop talking about my creative projects with other people. Focus on the work, let the page be the outlet for my passions and not other people, and one day it will be done.
Write. And keep writing.
do some wacky shit as an exercise. See if it flows anon..
>beat DE so many times I practically have the game memorized at this point
>every other game feels worse by comparison now
>sequel probably never ever and if it happens it’ll be soulless shit
What do I play?
I just beat it but might give it another go
Don't say you like the anime if you haven't read the manga
>gets bronze sphere
experience gaming bliss anon.
But I have.
Beat it before DE even existed, but thanks.
>before DE even existed
Weird flex but okay
so 5 years ago at least? Not that big of a flex
I am The Law.
>Harry is a polio survivor, didn't get vaxxed
>still got autism
is there any way to stop revachol being nuked in the future bros
nukes don't actually exist, not even in the fantasy world of disco elysium, so the fantasy french london is safe, don't worry
The game is a prequel to the book and in the book Revachol is a radioactive crater
This isn't funny this is me....
Pull out a gun and hold it to your head to show dominance. You want to really stick it to them? Pull the trigger.
Cuno is one of the most well written characters I've ever come across in a game, reminds me of so many of the little cunts I used to cross in school.
Please call me by my christian name. moron gay.
He is THE LAW.
What political alignment did you go for in your first run?
I'm a bit confused, is Harry literally insane or did he get touched by the supranatural?
