Do you talk to the characters?

Unread postby Lady Wu » Fri Dec 01, 2006 10:34 pm

Inspired by the Silly Poll, I have to ask whether people talk to/at the characters in DW.

I do. When my character is in an weapon deadlock with a (supposedly) weaker officer, I tell him that if he loses, he can't face the world as a man again. When an enemy officer yells a challenge ("Can you stand against my prowess?"), I usually say something snarky. One thing that really annoys me is when I'm fighting the boss and am in the red and running in circles for the musou gauge to fill, and an allied officer goes "Looks like we'll win!". I'd yell back, "Then come give me a hand, damned kid!"

I don't like to hurl abuses at people in real life, but I can sound like a sailor when playing DW... :oops:

When I am all by myself fighting literally the whole army and my allies are just sitting there doing jack. I'm getting smashed into walls and there like we need help against a platoon of soliders. And I'm like 'you idiots I'll kill you myself not get your asses over here NOW!!!'

I try to keep my comments short and pithy, e.g. a Trump-esque "You're fired" to an underperforming team member.
Mithril! The dwarves tell no tales. But just as it was the foundation of their wealth, so also it was their destruction. They delved too greedily and too deep, and disturbed that from which they fled.

Hahah, I can see you putting your nose on the screen and yelling: "You're fired, you hear me?!" :wink:

But for me, I don't really talk to characters, I just say always something like, "We're going to kick that's guy ass", or something like that, in finnish of course, but sometimes I say "Shit!" etc.

It's not really into that, that I would talk to characters. It's just when I play, and don't want to lose, I'll just say "Don't die", or something else. So, I'll at least say something to the game, not the characters actually.

I must admit I am guilty of this as well. I can think of a few examples off the top of my head. Sometimes when my character gets knocked down I will demand that they get up again. When I’m playing a character like Meng Huo or Dong Zhuo and running across the map to achieve some goal I comment on their weight and taunt them along the way. If someone is running I may call them a coward. If an insignificant officer chimes in with a thought I may inform them that nobody actually cares what they think.

Mostly, though, I just make fun of the voice acting. He Jin, I believe in Dynasty Warriors 5, was a source of endless amusement. He simply sounds as if getting up in the morning to command the battle troubled him to no end, and it is taking every bit of his energy to even muster a few words.

I do the “you’re fired” thing too. Except is is more like, “FIRED!”

More pointless yelling I do. DW5E examples cause it's the game I most recently played:
Guard captain: Just because we're a supply base doesn't mean we can't fight!
Me: Yeah, but it doesn't mean you can win either!

Guard captain: Good luck if you think you can take this base. (or something similar to that).
Me: Thanks, but I'm not going to need it.

Enemy officer: I've come to take your head. (or something, my memory is horrid today)
Me: Well, when I'm done you -will- need a new one.

And when I take the base I tend to say "My base." like a 5 year old who gets something new. :P

Ahh and as Zuo Ci
Enemy officer: Ah to be young and foolish again!
Me: Dude, Zuo Ci is like 10 times older than you, are you a moron?!

I'm sure there's more but I can't recall 'em.

Isn't that pretty accurately He Jin, though? :lol: "I can't be bothered to think up a plan for the battle... wake me up when you've defeated the enemy and can hand me the power/loot..."

Today I was playing Xtreme Mode with Cao Cao. In one mission, Cao Pi was leading some Turbz, and in another, Cao Zhang was fighting for the bandits...

I always talk to my DW characters. It really annoys Jen. She says "stop talking to the video game!" Usually it's to trash the enemies or to complain when stuff doesn't go my way. I yelled encouragement to my FFXII characters, too, when their gambits were fighting big battles for me.

Even though I think talking to a game is silly, it can make a game more fun by engaging you with it and making you more excited. Like betting on sports.

Oh, do I. Anytime I use Sun Quan's C5, I shout "PIMP COOOOOOAT!!!" at the top of my lungs. As a matter of fact, I've written silly DW stories where the only thing Sun Quan ever says is "pimp coat."

The only characters I've ever cussed out were Xing Cai (playing as her) and Lu Bu (obviously, fighting against him).
