I know that feeling of obsessing over the truth... I tried to marathon VLR and whenever I had to go to work I felt sooo bad. I also went to bed really late because i'd always say to myself "ok after this next event go to bed ===> did that just happen? I can't go to bed now ===> rinse and repeat.
yesss :> but I regretted it in the morning because I was so tired ;-;
I remember I marathonned 999 in like three days lmao :x I'm on my third ending atm (K), I already did Dio's...
my thoughts, you might find 'em interesting to read~
lol the moment Quark hit 9 BP I KNEW someone was going to freeze or kill him and take his bracelet >__< a kid is way too vulnerable, especially an unhinged one... or apparently unhinged... hmm... he has a lot of freedom to move, especially when he's supposed to be in those pods, since they unlock from the inside...
doing Dio ending before K ending makes it really obvious that Dio is the old lady's killer, because he's the only one with a known motive to infiltrate... of course, he might not be the only one with a motive at all... which also made it highly unlikely he's Zero, which is fine because I didn't suspect him~ but I also figured he didn't kill Alice and Luna since he got what he needed from the old lady (Tenmyouji's sister, maybe, or perhaps he is the one who saved her life once)... also fsr I thought he was going to die in the pods anyway, but only because the pods wouldn't work with clones or something, idk, his reaction was so extreme lol, but I guess he was gonna be locked up... but then Phi and Sigma thought someone did it to him so *shrug*
K's story made me really sad :( I liked him a lot before this, partly because he was so funny (due to the dissonance between his scary outfit + polite, formal demeanour, and his behaviour on the zero ride lmao, that scene was amazing) and partly because he was so polite and calm, and also because his outfit was so neat, but then I liked him even more, his story was very relatable and empathetic to me... and then... when I realised... the armour... chills... in my spine... O___O K ending is a serious mindfuck lol
I think K's father's educational software AI must be the same, or a prototype thereof, that powers zero maybe...? and perhaps K's father's research on immortality ties into the research of the religious cult (the one dio is involved with)'s, and sigma is somehow involved in this, he's a clone or something (or K is)...
also I'm really starting to wonder if Phi is even human lol, there's gotta be some significance to her emphasising that she's not a man...?! hmm I wonder.......
edit after completing Tenmyouji ending: SO TENMYOUJI IS...
that makes sense, I guess... O___O in a sad way because it's hard to reconcile Tenmyouji with Junpei... people sure change a lot, huh...? unless it's a fake lolz... well, we knew Junpei never got his happy ending ^^;
I've been wondering if the old lady is Lotus or someone else then...
I get a sinking feeling every time people split up and start wondering what they're up to lol I'm becoming paranoid because of this game x)
and ty, I've been careful only to save during the novel parts~ I actually had to sleep last night because I knew I couldn't keep going into a puzzle room and risk having to stop ;_;
I'm having trouble putting this game down because I just want to know the truth so badly :/
Haha, playing this game at night is the best way to play it!!!
Yeah take your time and absorb the game. It's reaaaaaaallllllllllyyyyy long (took me 34 hours to beat it).
And yeah their puzzles are made hard ~_~. My pride wouldn't let me cheat, but I also really wanted to the "Gold" files, so I ran into "walls" and had to take a breather lol.
I ALSO LOVE STORIES ABOUT PANDEMICS! Radical-6 is such an awesome concept, I can't wait until you get farther in. Oh, yes the soundtrack is godlike in this game. Songs from the previous game + entirely new songs? Yes please ♪
BEWARE OF THE SAVE BUG.
-Saving in the PEC room & Crew quarters puzzle rooms can bug your game and permanently delete your file.
-You can save ANYWHERE ELSE.
-Try not to save in puzzle rooms, just in case.
I spent the whole night playing it when I was supposed to be sleeping because I have to be awake tomorrow and now I'm too disturbed to sleep ;__;
clover ending was my first as well...!! ^5 hahaha also IDK who zero is~~ >w< I don't feel confident enough to speculate yet, only one ending... I have three main suspicions but kinda hesitant ~__~ it's hard to justify them atm
also this game is actually kinda hard on hard mode O_O
(sidenote: I LOVE STORIES ABOUT PANDEMICS and this is why I'm so creeped out... this virus... but the creepiest thing?? it's not radical-6... it's not k... it's not even zero-3... IT'S THE SOUNDTRACK)
