Legit with all those stuff going on the past few days I've basically been subconsciously comparing it V3 constantly. Good to see the OT is up so soon!

Kokichi is a cancer upon my soul and I hope, now that I've finished V3, I never have to see him and his stupid face again.

Fair enough I've heard that the minigames can be quite the annoyance to get the highest rating on.
I do plan on eventually doing them or completing them first once I have completed more of my backlog that I've got at the moment.
As of right now I gave up and think it makes the game super hard to platinum. If you want to do everything you'll need to get good at at least one of them.

Monokubs need to return. They're like 5 personalities of Monokuma with their own quirky personalities.

After a week of finishing DRv3,

i'm still not sure how i feel about the ending. I love it and i hate it. I can't stop thinking about it.

Also, kokichi is the best character in the DR franchise period.

Kokichi is probably the best Nagito
Kokichi did literally nothing wrong
Kokichi was the best V3 character and imo is the best character in the whole series. God, I love him.
Also, kokichi is the best character in the DR franchise period.


I respect your wrong opinions regarding Cockroach aka Kokichi

Seriously, I fucking hate Kokichi.

This (V3) is getting harder for me to play through. I'm in chapter two, right after the murder. Is there some big twist coming soon that will keep me compelled? After playing the first two games fairly recently I'm getting the feeling of diminished returns.

Angie in S? Is this because Atua said so?
Atua guides us all, his mercy is everlasting, his vessel Angie deserves nothing other than top billing

the twist is absolutely nuts and is totally worth getting to even if you're not enjoying yourself right now
