The Unholy Consult / Re: [TUC spoiler] - About the end of TAE

You should finish it!

It's unlikely I ever will.

As for FFX, I didn't really bother with many of the extras. FF8 was the only one where I did everything.

"Did you end up finishing it post-rage-quit?"

No. After the rage quit, I simply looked ahead to the end. I read spoilers too. I loved FFX too. AND X-2. :)

Whether or not an ending bothers me simply depends on the story itself. I do tend to expect happy endings in safe, traditional games like Dragon Quest. I DO NOT expect it in more nuanced games, like Skyrim or Final Fantasy(FFX, for example, is actually bittersweet). Happy endings in grimdark would really be one hell of a subversion, imo, unless they are very much earned.

Given how Kellhus made is pretty damned clear that he wanted to possess, like every one, a happy ending in THE SECOND APOCALYPSE would most likely be a esoteric sort of happy ending. So, even if Kellhus DID succeed in stopping the Consult, unless something was done about Damnation, I can't help but think that not much would change beyond that, especially if he knows that those that he wants "saved" would be saved. The Ciphrang would be just another tool. Hell just another kingdom to rule. Every one would be equally enslaved, except poor Achamian, I bet.

I think TUC ending in general was pretty damned fitting and certainly NOT bittersweet, despite some survivors. "Downer ending" certainly fits and I LIKE IT(yea, for the wrong reasons, but still...)! An ideal ending just plain wouldn't happen and I know that. I do, however, agree that an Ajokli ending would have been appalling and would pretty much be the actual end.

As for TNG itself, I can't see it being anything other than bittersweet, with heavy emphasis on the bitter.

Pride and Fall--Paragon:

Perfect Proyas song, imo.

These books are maddening like no other. I don't think of any other novels so often after I've finished them.

Yea. That's exactly how I feel too!

thinking of all the Scylvendi had said regarding the new Emperor, of how even now he marched on the Holy War from the west—or from the sea. “Warn them,” the leering shadow had said. “I would not see Proyas dead.”

I just don except laziness and doing nothing. That's where I feel that video games could lead to. And that would be a problem with me. Sorry, those are my values, instilled in my since I was a child.

Laziness that isn't a symptom of other problems has been a thing long before video games. With people like that, if it's not one thing, it's another.

No, there aren't any hard feelings.

I never gave a damn about any opening ceremony. Russia is hardly the only doping country, they're just the ones who get caught the most.

As for how Russia sees itself? Well, what were you expecting? They have a long history of nastiness, bleakness and complexity. Something like that wouldn't work in an opening ceremony.
