Save files in gaming are a very interesting thing to debate, in that there are many many different approaches by developers to best fit their game, but some save file mechanics are simply UN-justifiable. Please note this is save file discussion as in formats used to keep progress, not limitations on characters. The wolf amongst us, allows the user one save file and one save file only. Why? what purpose does that serve? My friend was trying to introduce me to the game on his xbox when he realized he was allowed only one save file, and because it was an online download we could not dodge that but signing in to another user. Dark Souls keeps save files away from the eyes of the player and follows a very strict and powerful save policy, the game saves everytime you open a menu, use an item, exit a menu, fast travel, change weapons, fight a boss, and every time you die. The same happens with MMO's in that save file management is out of the question for users. This keeps save editing at a minimum and adds a great deal of difficulty as pressing F9 won't quickload two steps ago like it did in Skyrim. Games like Skyrim permits the user to have as many save file as they damn wish to, a friend of mine does not believe in overwriting save files so his "load" menu is gigantic full of saves from last year. But that's only because Skyrim is a non-competitive game and altering your save isn't an issue to developers. Still it takes away from the challenge in that you can easily avoid death by reloading. What does the AJSA think? should games allow players to respawn and keep save files out of there hand like dark souls does, or should gamers be allowed infinite number of saves?
Reply on the repost plz. Here is link http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/6034-death-in-animegaming-who-would-you-save-repost/ SPOILERS: If you have not watched or played the following animes or games, and are planning to in the near future. IGNORE their respective section or (if you wanna be really safe) don't read this post. Final Fantasy 7 One Piece Attack on Titan Naruto Shippuden Bleach Death Note A death of a character, especially in anime, can establish so many different scenarios and change so many aspects of a story. Characters ideals, their values, their belief in both the world and themselves can be rocked in an instant. For us the viewer, we can only sit back and watch as the story plays out, powerless to do anything but hope it all works out in the end, and contemplating just how much you invested into this story. Certain death's that I watched as a gamer and a fan of anime, rocked my soul, and brought me to tears. Though I would be happy to discuss the significance and analyze the themes these deaths provoke lets just get right to the real question. WHO WOULD YOU SAVE? Name an anime or game (or even a book if you like), and Name the character you would save and a brief reason why. (One is enough, I'm just gonna give you a list) (if you got time, a top 5 would be cool ) Final Fantasy 7 Aeris (Aerith) : First death I had to deal with I think in general when it comes to life. Watching my uncle play this game I couldn't wrap my head around the idea of her being "gone forever". To my knowledge, all Cloud and the others had to do was gather the 7 dragon balls and wish her back... what about Mega Phoenix down.... shes gone.... I'm currently replaying the game since I didn't bond with the characters 120% when my uncle played. BUT REST ASSURED I WAS F*CKING INVESTED AND I WAS SAD. Attack on Titan Eren's Mother: Now I am fully aware that without Eren's mother's death, there does not exist tension, or driving force for Eren to join the recon corps. I GET IT, I GET IT. But..... when she's thanking that guy who saves Eren and Mikasa... and she's telling them to live... she ... she says ... while literally trying to stop herself..... she says......... "Don't leave me".....BROKE MY HEART. WHYYYYYYYYYY??? Knowing that she, in her final moments, had made the request to save her children without hesitation and yet was still afraid to die..... still wanted to be saved.. And that hurt me... that hurt me deep Bleach (tie) Coyote Starrk and Ichimaru Gin: Now most bleach fans probably want to save Ulquiorra. I want to save starrk (and literally as I was writing this I realized Gin died, but my mind refused to acknowledge it at first) and GIn. I assume if you're reading this you've finished bleach so you know Starrk's backstory. For me when Lilynette died (or Starrk could no longer hear or feel her). I was a bit torn up for him. I really like his character and even though he was an enemy, he clearly did not want to fight, (even though he was ranked the strongest espada and is a complete bad ass!). Now I technically didn't see him die, so here is holding out hope he's still alive....though when he lost lily.... the feels I think Gin is self-explanatory, but if you don't know, episodes b4 Gin's death we FINALLY get to see: him in real combat with his Zanpakuto, and his true reasons for joining the Soul Society/Aizen. Not only is he a badass, but he had a heart. Gin's persona is great and everytime he talks to Aizen or comments on just about anything its funny or amusing. And if that damn Hougoku wasn't ridiculous and complicated, GIN WOULD'VE KILLED AIZEN AND HE' BE THE HERO, AND... AND....... sigh.... Death Note L : This one is just a personal want. I was shell-shocked when he died and, for the next 2 to 3 episodes, I was STILL alive and would come back. To no avail. L's character was so cool and intriguing that I was disappointed to see him "lose". A necessary evil to making a DAMN GOOD anime. Naruto Shippuden Itachi Uchiha : Obvious choice. Jiraiya was close, Azuma was up there since I'm a huge fan of Shikamaru, but when it comes down to it, Itachi is one of those characters that carry an anime. He isn't the only one in this case, since there are SOOOO MANY QUALITY characters in Naruto, but he is definitely at the forefront. The story behind Itachi's death is so tragic. The moment of his death left me speechless and confused, and I rewatched it again and again to be sure I saw what I saw. YEA YEA he's reanimated right now so it takes away from the feeling of longing to see the character again, but even as a reanimated ninja, he's proving he's one of the best badass characters the Naruto universe had to offer, One Piece Portgas D. Ace: I'm not ashamed to say this. I was invested... I WAS IN TEARS. I CAME CLOSE TO BALLING MY EYE OUT WHEN IT HAPPENDED. No. NOOO! NOT ACE! WHAT? AFTER EVERYTHING WE'VE DONE! I have watched alot (almost too much but I'm not there yet) of anime in my life, but no anime has actually made me cry the way ace's death made me cry. Luffy's reaction.... everything. AND THEN THEY SHOW YOU LUFFY AND ACE"S CHILDHOOD RIGHT AFTER!!???!?!?!? ......... Needless to say that was a VERY tough arc to get through, I still can't watch or listen to the Opening song of that arc without tearing up.... :( ACE!!!!!!!!!!!! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ That's my list, if I had to save just one it'd be .... Ace soo.... WHO WOULD YOU SAVE? Name an anime or game (or even a book if you like), and name the character you would save and a brief reason why.
