Speculation Nation / Re: Why use the demon baby's body as a vessel?

Or was it that the egg of the perfect world just happen to pick up the demon baby's body and Griffith just used it as he is care free at this point.

There is no way to definitively answer this riddle. The way the event is structured, everything is going according to plan, and then the Beherit-Apostle makes a split-second decision to incorporate the child into its body, which eventually becomes the flesh for Griffith's form. What would have happened if the child had not been there? No one can say. This is the eventuality we have. Hypotheticals were never discussed.

In any case, it doesn't seem likely that Griffith "chose" that particular vessel, because of the consequence it created. So, it may have been an intended fault in his design by the author of causality, or a monkey-wrench born from pure chance.

I don't think Griffith and Guts our related nor is Guts Griffiths dad   :troll:

Griffith and Guts' child share a body. That's the joke.

Uhh, the third one, Griffith had no say, the fact of the matter is that, as planned by the big heart in the sky, the Demon Boy was always going to be Griffith's adopted form.

I just thought of something. If Griffith knocks up the princess the kid would be Griffith's son or daughter and Guts grandkid. Birthday parties would be a lot of fun.

Oh god.. can Griffith give birth to demons? I-is he going to have an army of demon children?   :griffnotevil: :griffnotevil: :griffnotevil: :griffnotevil: :griffnotevil:

I just got home and got this from the mailman. Thanks Grail! Pins will surely be taken to work and conventions. I was thinking of just recycling the bag you sent me the gifts in, for next year. It stays in good shape and seems like a baton to pass to the next secret schnoz.

I mean can't Griffith just use any body he wants why does it need to be the demon baby body  it could be one of the only bodys powerful enough to sustain girffiths essence but there is little to no evidence on that.Or was it that the egg of the perfect world just happen to pick up the demon baby's body and Griffith just used it as he is care free at this point.Could it be that this was the godhands plan all along  and Casca needed to survive until she gave birth to the demon baby/moonlight boy as it needed to be his body and no one else's.Well I'm out of ideas it could have just been a big screw up on Griffithis long list of screw ups the list includes

Banging the princess though that one makes him a god in the long run :carcus:
Not killing Guts  :guts:
Making Guts mad by violating Casca :mozgus:
Not killing Casca :casca:
Using the moonlights boys body :schierke:
Getting slapped :rickert:
Still not killing Guts :beast:
And becoming a godhand member in the first place as I think a member of the godhand doesn't get a all night stay at Disney land once their time is up. :serpico:

I haven't gone full renegade yet, but I am definitely treating John more differently than I did Arthur. I know how John turns out eventually, so it's not like it matters.

I did the same thing at first, and I'm still more trigger happy in the end/post game. I feel justified because John's not a bad guy but he will blow you away if you start shit with him. =)

Arthur is the better character. He changed naturally, whereas John had to try to change

I agree with this, or at least agreed with it immediately following the game; I think I need more time and perspective and to maybe replay Red Dead 1 to know for sure. It's pretty biasing when you just spent 60 hours with a character, but I did fall in love with Arthur.It helps John's case that I'm doing a lot of missions with him now and getting re-acquainted with his specific charms, but I do think Arthur has more depth, nuance, and humanity while John's more iconic.

Also, apparently no one has had the same experience with this game. My friends are telling me all this stuff they've had to do with characters that don't even exist in mine. I randomly came across a serial killer and a vampire, as well as a mad scientist, but they haven't on two playthroughs. Just overall kind of crazy how this game has evolved.

Yep, I've seen or heard of all that stuff, and there's all sorts of other weird things out there to find, and even having read about a lot of it I still haven't come across them...

Another comment about this game and how much it stretches the form is that it's still very much a traditional 3rd person action/shooter, it's not reinventing the wheel with its controls or interface at all, the core gameplay (ride and shoot) isn't that much different from RDR1 or any number of games like it, but they just added a shit-ton of extra options and features on top of that very traditional game framework, with an emphasis on "realistic" movement/motion in regards to momentum. It's weird because it has all this hyperrealistic stuff, but it's more cinematic in its presentation, next to like pushing R1 to switch your gun with one on the ground. Or, your hat comes off and you have to go get it and it'll be on the ground later, but you can also just re-select it in your horse's inventory (same with your horse itself if you become separated; it won't just respawn to your whistle, you gotta go back or be in range... unless you go to a stable, THEN it's magically there). It's a weird mix of realism for the sake of presentation, like it's only pretending to be a life simulator, next to pragmatic game mechanics for convenience and play-ability that it circumvents half the time for the sake of a more cumbersome sort of reality. Again, it's a great, weird, game.

Same here, I was going to say I've found like a second wind but it's more like a third or fourth. Counting online I have like three different saves I'm currently playing and I haven't even restarted with a full-renegade Arthur yet; which is supposed to be significantly different in many ways big and small, yet implemented subtly. Goddamn this game, I keep finding and figuring out these weird details and mechanics while my wife deadpans, "Is that really necessary?" Yesterdays where when I accidentally hit a signpost full on with my horse and disintegrated it, the signs, the post, the rock it set was in, everything; if you just clip one, you may only knock off one sign or an appropriately sized corresponding piece. =) The other was that Arthur and John have different handwriting in their journals and Arthur is a significantly better artist when you've cataloged the same things despite John claiming he's become "something of a draftsman" himself, I compared =). Yet they basically have the same dialogue during Stranger missions, which makes sense because you're fulfilling the same role! It's so weird how the very un-gamey parts of this game make the normal game stuff seem somehow unsophisticated despite being completely reasonable. But yeah, for a game I was kind of tired of a week ago I spent way too much time this weekend just riding around hunting legendary animals, doing stranger quests, and just experiencing the world, maaaaan. It's like I'm finally living the life Arthur wanted to. :carcus:

Speculation Nation / Re: A look at the name of Dragon Slayer
« Last post by I know that I know :) on December 10, 2018, 06:23:53 PM »
Now Im not so big on the philosophy but I am guessing Guts is a dragon slayer in the eyes of Friedrich Nietzsche. It pretty cool how well berserk lines up with this part of the book maybe even Miura drew inspiration from it  or it is just a crazy coincidence. But I got a better idea  maybe just maybe  Friedrich Nietzsche went back in time after finishing berserk and being such a big fan about it  wrote a book on it so people in the past can enjoy how awesome  of a story berserk is  :???: seems possible when you really think about it :troll:.
