Stranger of Paradise

Just finished this and it's amazing.

The gameplay feels satisfying, the story is absolutely insane for being inspired by fucking FF1 and the OST is full of fucking bangers. How did they manage to take the Mt. Gulug theme and turn it into this masterpiece? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrDnTqKZvcA

How is this shit not talked about constantly?

I feel like everyone just memes the shitty CHAOS meme but nobody actually bothered to play the game.

      FF1 basically tells the story about how the four crystals of water, fire, wind and earth became corrupted by some boss monsters who were sent by a being called Chaos. The crystals being corrupted means that these elements are fucking up the world. The legend says that four warriors of light will show up one day to defeat the monsters, cleanse the crystals and get rid of the big bad called Chaos.

      SoP is basically the same, except with a lot of meta narrative, neat callbacks and unexpected developments if you have the FF1 narrative in mind, with a very cool and satisfying ending imo.

      You play as Jack, who tries to kill Chaos with his friends Ash and Jed. You being just three people though has the king skeptical if you're actually the Warriors of Light, because they're supposed to be four people. After you kill Chaos you meet Neon, the fourth Warrior of Light, who tried to become Chaos to give the people hope that Chaos can actually be defeated, because Chaos isn't actually real. The world is still fucked from the corrupted crystals, so our teams get on their way to purify them. Except on this adventure you actually meet a fifth Warrior of Light, as well as a lot of strange flashbacks and memory sequences which hint at some bigger shit going on than just "save the crystals, save the world".

          It released in march 2022, past games have shown that the exclusivity period for EGS games is around 12 months. So it's likely that it'll release march 2023 on Steam and other PC stores.

    Because it was talked about for a while; but almost everybody treated it as a joke without ever experiencing it one way or another. That, and since it was an EGS (console aside) exclusive, released at around the same time as Elden Ring, and, as much as I hate to say this, the game isn't streamer friendly. With even that, it would at least be more well-known.

      The issue was that the first reveal trailer honestly wasn't that good. I'm guilty of shitting on it too but they actually managed to turn it around because they took the criticism and made each trailer after that much better. The memes were funny and all but I don't buy games based on memes. I think a lot of people never ended up giving it a chance after that initial first impression. It did also release a little too close to Elden Ring. ER was a huge game and a lot of people were still finishing things up with it by the time SoP came out.

          It's a shame because it ended up being really good and a lot better than I expected. As it turns out, first impressions are important. I hope the lifetime sales do well enough for it.

          The ending almost made me cry.

          Wish the game had more missions honestly but other than that it’s pretty much the perfect game for me.

          The game was surprisingly emotional. I didn't think I'd grow any sort of attachment to the characters but the last few missions really cranked the emotion up.

      I'm shit at games but other than being stuck on a few bosses for an hour on hard mode the game was pretty managable. If streamers can manage to play through the souls games and elden ring, they can totally manage this game as well.

        I'm not referring to difficulty. What I mean is that streamers were not allowed to, well, stream it; much like how Atlus didn't want Persona 5 to be streamed. That, and the Sinatra estate would probably rain hell on them too.

          The worst thing that can happen is that their VoD gets silenced for 30 minutes. Otherwise you should have a button to mute the game ready anyway nowadays. At least I streamed it uninterrupted and nothing happened, other than the muted VoD.

          Nonetheless, every game released with licensed music should have a "replace licensed music" option.

    Because it came out at a fucking horrible time, just a couple weeks after elden ring, and got completely overshadowed by it because it's a "soulslike" in the most barest of senses. It's more like nioh 2.5 (but with no dogshit stamina system thank christ, just MP).
    The demo they released was fantastic but too hard for most people, as is evident by looking up discussion around the time it came out, the pricing was insane, $60 for a like 6-10 hour experience is INSANITY.

    And again, lastly, not to be understated, it came out just a couple weeks after elden ring. It stood 0 chance, and they knew this.

      One of the best games I have ever played, I didn't think it at the beginning but it's right there with Nioh 1 and 2
      A question for fellow jackbros: how do you keep your volumes? I crank music way up and effects to like 40%, voices 70%, but the voices of bosses during the battle (e.g. bikke, the fiends) are barely audible... If I put everything to 100% they are even worse. I was like 80% through the game when I realized that bosses talk actual words during attacks, but the volume problem plus no subtitles means I cannot understand what they say...
      Are boss voices during battle dialogue or effects? Is there a way to get them to the normal dialogue volume (even a mod if necessary?)

      Don't get hit then. The game gives you like, 5 different abilities to either block or avoid attacks, if you still get downed you just suck at games and should probably pay attention to what's happening on screen.

          Are you new to the concept of AoE and hit-boxes? That jump has a large hit-box, soul guard or parry are your best options there.

          Give the game another chance - it really does get more interesting as it goes along. You have to be willing to pay attention and not just giggle while regurgitating memes, though.

          This is the least optimal way to play the game and you'll get punished for it more and more the further you get.

          Some jobs are better than others but any of them can be viable in the right hands. If one job isn't working for your preferred playstyle, try another one. That's the whole point of the system.

          The game offers an impressive amount of flexibility, actually. There are your typical big two-handed sword builds, mage builds that balance direct attacking with carefully-timed magic, builds that emphasize countering over balls-to-the-wall offense, and much more. Keep playing and you'll find a style that you enjoy. Or don't - not every game is for everyone.

      The budget is smaller than Nioh but I wouldn't say it's phoned in, it's actually really solid. You bring up Final Fantasy but that really wasn't the draw for me, I just wanted a good Team Ninja action RPG. I've played a decent amount of FF games but I don't really consider myself a huge fan of the series in recent times. Story ended up being pretty enjoyable despite being full of Nomura time-hopping/memory shenanigans. There's plenty of good jobs, the balance is fine for the most part. I don't know what you're talking about combat being "rigid". You've got dodge, parry, soul guard, and some action abilities to avoid damage. I actually liked many of the levels too. It's not flawless or anything but it's better than a 5 for sure. The gear system was incomplete at launch but the last DLC massively improved it by giving you full customization over everything.

    I finally beat Death Machine legitimately, but I wish I'd done it on the lvl 500 quest, because I really don't want to fight it like that ever again.

      I need to clear the rift up until the end of the story part before the final dlc comes out. I'm only on like floor 4 I think.

        story rift levels are easy. Floor 22 onwards doesn't have extra mode, so you need proper gear to continue.

          If you're looking for a good gearset, the paladin+dark knight set on psnprofiles is pretty good, I got through all of the 'new' stuff with it pretty well.
          I didn't go all the way to level 100 but I had more than a good fill of the game, hope the last dlc is as good as gilgamesh.

            Ew, no. I am currently playing Blue Mage/Thief. Considering swapping the latter for Summoner and running around with fuck all MP because I spend it all on trivial shit, but that's for after DLC 3 comes out
            >hope the last dlc is as good as gilgamesh
            Even if it isn't (which is unlikely), playing through the rift with gunner should be fun. Doubly so if they end up letting you play through it on the new difficulty/max iLVL and including the new level(s?), enemies and bosses.

              I'm not good enough at these kinds of games to come out with mega builds, I definitely wouldn't have thought to max out hp with monk and get a buff from paladin for it.
              I did know about the thing for near-death dark knight though.

        Yeah when I fought it in the rift I used Extra Mode, when I attempted the side quest fight I only did the level 400 quest, it’s second phase is a lot easier to deal with than the first thankfully, but it’s a chore to get to it.

    Does this work on PC yet? I could hardly play it at launch below 1080p and got less than 60 fps on a 2070

    1- it melts your PC if you can even get it to run at acceptable FPS
    2- not on steam

    I've been enjoying the hell out of it. I do wish the combat system was a bit more deep like Nioh's. Expert jobs should be able to switch weapons on the fly or something. How is the Dragon King dlc? Might pick it up once I beat the game.

      I didn’t like Dragon King that much, I feel like Wanderer of the Rift offers more, Dragon King is nice for the summoner job though.

          Yeah it’s got everything, the upcoming dlc looks good too so you’re not really missing out, Dragon King is just kind of barebones so I can’t really recommend it by itself.

      I think all the dlcs come as the same package, but honestly the bahamut dlc is kind of lame because the "main content" is just like 4 new missions with a bunch of difficulty modifiers, but the bahamut fight, the warrior of light fight, and all the actual new stuff with weapons/jobs/etc are all great so it's not that bad
      Gilgamesh's dlc is fantastic though, all of it.

    >The gameplay feels satisfying
    It's a button masher. Literally all your tools go back to spamming the basic attack to build mana. Removing Nioh's stamina management to cater to retards was a mistake.

      it's soulful job combat
      never before have they actually had a GOOD representation of the job system in a fully action setting and dragoon feels fantastic

        I'm actually envious you can enjoy the game despite how shallow the gameplay is, but maybe that feat is because you're a Final Fantasy fan rather than a fan of Team Ninja. It's better than most budget spinoff games, but it' s a poor showing by the devs.

          yea i'm aware of nioh but never played it (or any souls game, for that matter) and I was playing it purely off of it being a final fantasy game
          surprisingly given how negative my opinion of it was upon its first trailer it quickly became one of my favorite games. Not top 10 or anything but it's certainly up there, and even if it was entirely team ninja's work and not squeenix's it does give me some hope for the franchise, something it's desperately needed for a while
          Red mage/Sage into hastega stacks and dropping ultima+meteor feels great, as does dragoon, monk, samurai, etc
          I didn't try most of the jobs outside of leveling them a bit but all the ones I put any amount of time into were fun

    yup it's a great game. Good clean fighting. Performance is the worst issue. I guess loot annoys people but I think most people will simply enjoy and play the story through.
