We did already put it to a vote and decided sub knife axe (and so on), but… you’re totally right, the buildup to what’s behind Door 3 is so important. I can’t believe I forgot about that. And it’s definitely not the “neutral” option (like how we decided to go Door 4 partially because it was the neutral option). The game really doesn’t want you to do that choice first lol
I’ve only done sub last too (out of axe, knife, sub). So I was curious to see how it would be with sub first, so that’s why I originally agreed to go with sub first. I think sub ending itself would be a really good first ending too. But Door 3 itself is much better to experience later in the game. And the other two endings are still good first endings imo
So I’ve changed my mind, I think we should go with either axe or knife first. Doesn’t really matter to me which. Since we went through door 4 we could also do coffin first but I don’t recommend that since coffin gives a lot away. If we go axe first, iirc we need to pick door 8 next. With knife it doesn’t matter if we go 8 or 7.
If we really want to see sub first, we should go through Door 3, I know there’s other ways to get sub but that’s the best option. So I guess it’s a question of what’s more important: the suspense of waiting to see what’s behind that door, or seeing that ending first.
That got really long, sorry about that, but I wanted to lay out all my reasonings
No you’re good, I appreciate it! Yeah I agree it’s definitely not the “neutral” first option so it feels weird to go for it first imo. We could potentially just swap and go for 486 first? That’d mess with the rest of the order the least potentially.
On previous discussions, spoilers ahead:I went with door 8 for now; from there we could just swap sub and knife and keep the rest of the order the same, or if anyone has other particular preferences we could consider those as well. As of now though sounds like we’re going for knife first!
IIRC there’s a 3 post in a row limit or something? Just gonna help break it up by saying thanks for all of your effort in running this; you’re doing a fantastic job. I really appreciated how thoroughly you compiled stuff in the posts.
Edit: Come to think of it, there’s an exception if you created the thread I think. Oh well
Alright, I’ve just finished the potential assignment for the coming week (since I have time now that finals are over yay! ) and it’s… short for reference it took me about 50 minutes which is quite a bit less than the others have been. However, it also (slight structural spoiler) ends with our first ending, which makes me somewhat hesitant to add on additional scenes.
So… we have a few options I can think of. One, we could just do a short week as a sort of rest time/catch-up week, potentially aiming to ramp up the speed a bit in the near future. Two, we could add on more scenes regardless, though that would require figuring out some other things before finalizing due to the aforementioned slight structural spoilers. Three, we could keep the upcoming week short and try to do a bit more the following week (week 8) to make up for it, in which case I could potentially post week 8 a bit early so people can balance time between the two.
I’m open to any other suggestions as well, so let me know what you guys think! I’ll put a poll here as well to get a general idea:
What should we do for the upcoming readings?
Keep week 7 short
Add more scenes to week 7
Keep week 7 short, but add more to week 8 to make up for it
Other (please explain)
Aw thank you so much :') that’s really nice to hear! It’s been a lot of fun, I’m doing my best
I’m voting for both short options entirely because this is the week Tears of the Kingdom comes out haha. So I’m very willing to see it extended if it comes to that, but I guess we already have support in the catch up direction.
Nice! Those vouchers are so good, especially with the price raised on the game. I did the same. Are you doing it in Japanese or English? I think I’m going to try to roll with Japanese for the extra exposure and then I can feel like I’m being productive while playing another videogame haha.
That’s the real trick I’m currently leaning towards English since that’s how I did the majority of my Breath of the Wild time, and so I can keep up with my friends playing it better, but man it’s always tempting to pick up another Japanese challenge… I’ve fooled myself into so much Japanese gaming productivity already though
But that’s awesome, I hope it goes well! I definitely wanna go back and play more Breath of the Wild in Japanese one day
Woo same hat, congrats!! Always nice to have a bit of a break to fill with nonsense
I’m really glad it didn’t come out before I was done with finals lmao, that definitely would’ve been dangerous
Alright I’m looking into next week’s assignment, so I wanted to double-check what people are feeling regarding route order (spoilers ahead): if we just swap out knife like we briefly discussed before we’d be going for sub next, which would mean going through door 3 which is fine, but I wanted to see how everyone feels about that since as previously discussed that’s definitely not the neutral choice. Just to reiterate, the other paths we’d discussed before getting into endgame things were 432 for sub and 571 for axe, so unless we change things we’d be doing 432 next. I’m flexible personally, so if anyone has any particular feelings please let me know!
I think that 432 is fine. The first route backtracked to door 3 anyway, and we eventually have to go thru both door 7 and 8. Door 3 is the only one that isn’t technically required so it’d be a shame to miss it
