Should I go for 100%?

Post by I'm an Engineer » Fri Mar 23, 2012 5:32 pm

I've recently gotten all the good endings and the act one bad ending, so I thought about 100%, and I went "Why not?".
I just got my second bad ending (Shizune's) and now I'm having my doubts. Should I go on for 100% or leave it as it is?

Yes you should.
It would be a great discredit to the the hard work by the Dev Team to not explore every facet of their creation.

I like to think of the 100% CG as the punchline to a 20 hour long joke.

Take that as you will.

You can't really understand any of the characters fully unless you finish all the bad and neutral endings, and reflect on how the choices you make bring you to those endings. I'd say 100% completion is an absolute must! Actually, I'm a proponent of doing more than one 100% completion, but I understand a lot of people don't have that kind of free time/commitment.

After getting the bad ending for Emi, Rin and Shizune, i'm not too enthusiastic about the remaining bad endings.

I would just go and get the Good, Normal, and Bad Endings unless you want to unlock the infamous final CG!

Lilly doesn't have a bad ending. It's pretty much just the good ending, without the crowning moment of heartwarming. So that really leaves you only one: Hanako's.

Stomach it, soldier. It's only a few minutes of pain.

Honestly, Hanako's bad endings are probably the least bad of all of the bad endings. Both of them are actually pretty salvageable.

Go for it.

If you went through Shizune's bad ending, then the good ending is that much more meaningful than what it is.


hell, go through the entire game until 100%. Doesn't hurt, right?

For me Shizune's bad ending was the most.. well bad. Those feels.. Compared to that, the rest is pretty much doable.

Its funny, I'm not sure if I was tired or just not paying any attention, but I didn't realize I was on Shizune's bad ending until the credits started rolling. The ending seems kind of abrupt, imo.
