cudgels brain I think the werewolf is considered as fast as the wendigo. The few times I won the arm-wrestling contest as a wendigo was by showing a burst of speed he wasn’t expecting, just enough to slam his arm down before he could react.

That said, it is probable the wendigo really is faster, but considering she is basically starving, and using her powers requires more energy…and the werewolf also has strength and stamina on their side, the werewolf is basically the strongest overall fighter.

This is what @Sashira said about the Wendigo vs Werewolf:


#3514

Yeah wendigos only care about the feast, nothing else. They’re just like berserkers except they eat human flesh.


#3515

I’m guessing that Wendigos with high Humanity would deviate from this kind of stereotype.

After all, if you have a high enough Humanity, you’ll resist the urge to devour Hunter/Artemis in the alleyway.


#3516

The reason I would consider this a weakness is that a Wendigo, whether they care about their humanity or not, would probably still like to retain control of their actions, so this awareness would be quite known to them…especially if they lost control in times past.

And being aware of it, even with a high humanity wendigo, would provide its own stress/anxiety. Remember, Wendy herself is very nervous around people in general.


#3517

You make a good point.

But I still think that the absence of a ‘society’ is an interesting weakness. I don’t know, I just feel like it’s something you can rely on in the worst case scenarios.

You’ve got the goblins with their advanced civilizations and even more advanced inventions.

You’ve got the werewolves with their tight knit pack.

You’ve got the vampires, who I’m sure have some sort of society.

Hell, even the cubis can rely on their lovers (and the occasional cubic can have a demon parent).

Then you have the Wendigo…they’re alone. No one to guide them, no one to have their back, no one to properly call ‘family’. In their cruel existence, it’s only them against the big, scary world.


#3518

And I’m not discounting it. If anything, being alone could certainly erode one’s humanity.

I was mostly looking at what might be considered a physical, or mental/spiritual weakness…not societal :slight_smile:


#3519

Maybe if you romance a monster, they’ll allow you to integrate yourself into their monster society? It’s fat fetched, but I’m sure a wendigo would provide numerous benefits for a society.


#3520

After all, she’s walking around an all you can eat buffet. So she always has to keep her hunger in check, and have strong will power.


#3521

Did I miss the memo or something? Because I could have sworn that taylor was a boy too and not just a girl.


#3522

I’m not sure because I always select that I’m attracted to girls, but it may change based on your orientation.


#3523

It was changed, now Taylor is always a girl.


#3524

From what i just read i suppose the realise date will be sometime next year around january?


#3525

You are eternally hungry and have to spend every living moment of your life knowing there is never going to be enough food to fill your stomach. Just staying human and not eating everything in your sight is a battle unto itself.

That’s good enough of a weakness for me.

That or I interpreted this universe’s wendigos wrong.


#3526

@Zad
I think that the wait is worth. I personally could wait for the full version too…


#3527

I mean sometime next month late june or early july i hope for the next update. But i dont mind waiting 6-7 months till full release.


#3528

What other touches might anyone else like with this game?

One thing I really liked was the options to play as someone not interested in sex, but still could fall for someone.

I went aw, with this line with Chantal

You’d love to get closer to her… there’s something about her that makes you want to hold her hand.

Or like this line with Wendy:

You think even the most frightening monsters deserve love, and wish you could be the one to give it to her. She has a quiet charm.


#3529

Are all characters bisexual? So if my character is the same gender as the other they won’t mind? Just a random question ( i have only played as a straight male)


#3530

@Zad
No, I don’ think so. I saw them talking about the options in another thread (before I joined… I’m a new to the forums too).


#3531

Same i didnt have a account until couple of days ago but i was just curious on the way characters react to your sexuality.
