That’s all I’m hoping for too, and I do have faith in Zach. I know this is just the first game and it needs to step the groundwork for the awesome. But until then I’ll just have to be a salty, bitter woman who just wants to love her trashy boyfriend. The next game can NOT come out soon enough.
I completely agree. In most places this didn’t bother me personally until it came to the Jury romance. I normally like CoG games that are a bit more linear because I get really overwhelmed when I can literally do anything (I know everyone loves Choice of Robots and Tin Star but I’ve tried both and I just can’t play them, I can’t wrap my head around an open world in text form) but I still like having the choices I make be meaningful and impact the story without the game smacking my hand and telling me “no, you shouldn’t do that.”
Ah, I know. I hate how you can’t have anything with him in the first two games. I know, game, that I’m supposed to hate him but I was under the impression that I get to make choices here and the choice I want to make isn’t here… And when I do finally get it it’s taken away from me. I get that Zach tried to make him as unlikable as possible but for me that failed because I like characters who are overly confident when they have no right to be. He is literally one of my favorite characters in anything ever and I wanted to at least try to not be hating on him the whole games.
I mean, just imagine if instead of all roads leading to knocking him out that first time you met you could work together with him. Have a friendship (or something else) and then he finds out who you are and maybe thinks that you only friended him to try and get revenge on his dad for jailing your parents. Give him a deeper reason for you two to not like each other, a deeper relationship. You could do so much more with him that just simple “ha ha, got you again, MC,” this is the son of the man who ruined your life for pete’s sake! Just. Ah. I have too many feels about Jury!
