I decided to not buy second season pass because I disagree with the policy of not informing us about anything that we will recieve in said pass. I only bought Hilde so far and I'm absolutely uninterested in Haowhoever so I'm fine with my choice
That's a good stance imo. Haoh is fun, but imma press X to doubt he's coming back.

I'm a sad child who buys season passes to save money cuz my pay cheque is inconsistent at best. Got fucked with code vein, but, apart from the trash customisation packs, I've been pretty happy with season two.

Was initially interested with Code Vein since I was done with my first DS game but somewhat lost interest. Was something wrong with it?

All three DLCs are just reused dungeon maps with reused enemies with one unique boss encounter. There is no storyline associated with any of them, and you have to grind them multiple times to obtain all the unique gear... to have nothing to use it on because you already 100%’d the game months ago.

It would probably be less annoying to a brand new player than to someone who bought the Deluxe Edition at launch, but the content is still pretty disappointing that it lacks grounded relevance to the bigger picture. It’s just pretty weak overall.

Yikes. It seems like patience is virtue and it's better to wait for reviews or any actual information about DLC. Another reason to be mindful of any sort of pre-orderes or early access (says that and buys Bannerlord)

I mean, I personally enjoyed code vein and the DLC bosses were fairly good but what you got Vs what you paid for doesn't really add up. I only bought it because I like messing around with classes, and fighting superbosses is fun to me. Otherwise, game itself, worth it, dlcs, not so much.

Hwang is almost certainly going to feature a Yun-seong cameo, as he wishes senpai would notice him. But maybe when Hwang doesn’t, Yun-seong will defect to Chile and find Li Long, setting him up for season three. That would be an interesting divergence!

But seriously, the odds of Li Long having any interaction with Korea is quite low, and he was lucky to get his aside mention in Xianghua’s story. Kind of sad he didn’t get anything in Taki’s story. Li Long really is the hardest inclusion, with his lacking context, unless they give him all-new story, of course.

Rock and Aeon are linked, too, so unless they keep using Lesser Lizardman to represent Aeon in Rock’s story, it seems likely that Aeon would come first, so he could take part properly when Rock came around.

That's something I was wondering... If Rock is announced first, this automatically desconfirms Aeon?

No because the story could be different this time around. While in SC1 Rock and Lizardman were linked they could gloss over that. Or they could have Rock fight the "Lesser Lizardman" AI characters.

Lizardman is a weird case for me because while it seems obvious they would work on him for DLC, the fact that they made a specifically AI only version of him (Lesser Lizardman is a brand new character ID they made for SC6) maybe means low priority.

It means at the time they didn't want to seriously work on Lizardman due to popularity and roster size budgetary restrictions, yet there was no way in hell they could tell the story of SC1 properly without him, so a lazy compromised version had to be put in place. Chances are it will be switched for a proper Lizardman should Season 3 happen.

There's also the fact that, for any given story beat that two characters share, that beat can be represented in either character's soul chronicle, so I'm not really sure the order matters much. There's also the fact that they could add Lesser Lizardman to Rock's/or any other forthcoming character's soul chronicle and then replace it with the complete Lizardman style at a later date if necessary. For that matter, since it's only an AI in a non-competitive mode, they can slap whatever "more complete than Lesser Lizardman, but not yet finished Aeon-Lizardman" style on to Aeon for any fights he has in the soul chronicles of other characters, if any.

For my part, if there is a season 3, I'm pretty sure both Rock and Aeon will be locks. I'm not so sure about the order: Dante's theory has merit, but I'm not sure that one continuity issue is the biggest factor they will consider in their approach to the order, given there are multiple ways to approach the SCI-derived narrative cross-over between Aeon and Rock--which presumably would only amount to a couple of missions in the soul chronicle anyway, right? I'm not that familiar with the lore, but if I remember correctly from Dante's references, it amounts to Lizardman stealing Rock's weapon and Rock giving chase? That's a minor enough plot point that it could be ignored, and even if it is replicated, I can't imagine it taking more than a handful of fights/interstitial to resolve.

I'm not so sure that they will "switch" this Lesser Lizardman out of the game. If you are correct they will add a DLC finished version of him, but the original Lesser Lizardman is baked into story mode and Libra of Souls so he will remain.
