    The fact he is still happy with 50xp shows how much of a gamer he is. Every little bit counts XD

    Should have shown the 50xp added to an xp pool of over 8 million, just to show the insignificance of the enemy you just killed

      Does that even count as an enemy or just light relief.

    • Raven4K
      Raven4K 9 months ago +73

      @Aaron Lowe due to the level imbalance between them I would call it light relief or a chew toy at that point cause seriously he can't even scratch him with his attacks they do nothing at that point as you saw

    • Step-Moonton
      Step-Moonton 9 months ago +33

      @Enthuast that is actually an issue we resolve by giving Stat boosts to bosses dependant on items.
      It is very difficult to get a clean boss which cannot be cheesed, as we say.
      Most of the time, sadly, the owners do not care. We want the best player experience, yet often we cannot provide it for the playersm

    Martyn 8 months ago +344

    Tbh it IS a very good feeling when you go into the main story overleveled.
    It's like using cheats, but you actually earned them, so it ends up balancing out.
    Even better when a game can get reasonably challenging deeper into the quest still.

      An elite player would zip in at near-light speed on a burning pheonix, listen to all of the dialogue and cutscenes, admire the textures on the tent, sleeping bag and lantern, grab a collectible journal, harvest a mushroom, then zip out at near-light speed again, blasting every creature in the area with an aoe mount passive on accident.

  • Jonquil Gemstone

      @Lights_Utopia I did it last in elden ring. At low level I was just running away from so much stuff that I couldn't properly appreciate and explore the world as well. So I just came back to beginner regions once I was op and started combing through every nook and cranny.

  • hatsu
    hatsu 9 months ago +505

    This is legitimately how I play a lot of games on my way through the main story I'll just get sidetracked with so many side quests in between each main story quest so by the time I reach the actual quest I've overpowered for the quest and I go through it easily
    Also first time going through the game you always listen to all the dialogue
    And I just see the side quests as extra loot and a little bit of story if you want it

  • NeilTheMathGeek

    The more I watch these, the more I want an RPG with NPCs that are actually like this, like, commenting on level gaps or mechanic clichés. We need an Epic NPC RPG to get made...

      If the adventurer was Ben, he would have laughed menacingly the whole battle through, and his dialog would have been arrogant and stoned by his power

    • huuweee

      Also he didn't skip the speech and you can tell from his looking after the attacks that he kinda feels sorry for the boss to be absoluty no match to him.

      I think back to a game from like three decades ago. Baldur's Gate. I don't recall if it was the first or the second game but in one of my play throughs I went exploring immediately, came across a rare encounter, defeated the NPC (barely) and gained a very nice enchanted silver sword as a reward. If I remember correctly that damn sword ended up carrying me through the rest of the game.

      @Jorge Curiel López Skyrim in a nutshell... I spent about 30 hours doing side quests before I stumbled upon an essential npc and triggered a main quest on accident. That was when I realized that I haven't even finished the 4th main quest yet lol.

    So, I genuinely would find this being turned into a game, kind of fun! There's a lot of solidity in the story, despite the oddly comedic skits, that you guys, if you wanted to, could turn this whole thing into an actual game! I genuinely would love to see this stuff all put into an actual MMORPG.

    Hamish is a hell of an asset for y'all. He excells at playing the unfortunate, the bamboozled, and the anger fueled so well.
    In one of your previous skits, his ramp up from being simply annoyed about them skipping his ba-nay-nay and carrot sales dialog, then progressively pushed beyond his breaking point to fury. His absolutely hilariously aggressive delivery of the line, "YOU WANT SOME FRUIT?!?" was a perfect line delivery.

    • Caleb Owens
      Caleb Owens 3 months ago +1

      I think it depends more on the programmer than anything else. Sometimes, if you're over-leveled, one attack is far more than the boss' entire health bar. However, after one hit, it activates the cutscene programmed for when he drops to 75% health and is at that health when the cutscene ends (necessitating extra hits for however many cutscene triggers they have).
      Depending on the game and level, it might even be programmed as something which you have to lose; the boss will only be damaged to a certain point and then his health bar will stop going down and the only way to progress is to let him kill you (I've only had that happen once and it took me a bit to figure out that I was supposed to lose for the story).

    That's what happened to my in Skyrim. I did so many side quests and leveling that by the time I got around to doing the main quest line I was overpowered beyond belief and everything was literally a 1-shot. Good times.

      Skyrim is laughably easy to do this in, just skip visiting the tower in Whiterun main mission, and there are no dragons in the world aside from some hidden side quest ones. Collect some specific alchemy ingredients, brew and sell a specific potion (Creep Cluster + Mora Tapinella + Scaly Pholiota) for massive amounts of gold, then buy and disenchant stuff so that you can then run a loop to overlevel your smithing and enchanting abilities for massive damage/protection/health.

    The best strategy to apply when you’re over-leveled will either be divide and conquer or superior firepower. The only thing that bugs me is still being susceptible to certain hazards (radiation by limit) and giant explosions, against which there usually is no stat to increase in modern games.

    Hamish kills me every time with his falls and sounds he makes😂😂😂(among good writing and editing in all these skits). This has now become my favorite in addition to Weak Spot, fruit seller and Just Press C. I can’t find this type of comedy gold on television anymore.

    Doesn't even bother to check the body for any good loot. That's the real mark of knowing you're overleveled, you've already got everything you need.

  • Vault Hunter From Terra

    It is now canon that grinding Mercenary jobs, clearing dungeons, & exploring caves is the meta power-leveling strategy when we get a VLDL game

  • Blake Pitcher

    It would be fun to play an RPG where all the main storyline characters react to the player character being over-levelled. Like you go into bandit hideout and their boss berates you for being the big dammed hero picking on petty criminals.

    I have a love hate relationship with this. I love doing my side quests when they are meant to be done, but often it leads to you being equally leveled for each fight. I love myself a challenge and usually play on the hardest difficulty with enemy upscaling etc. However, even if I do this, a ton of the boss fights feel a little underwhelming, unless I'm playing an extremely difficult game. At the same time I don't like getting stuck at one part for 10 hours.

    In Taiwan there was an old RPG game and a player didn't know how to trigger the main story line to leave the town. By the time he left the town, which is normally around lv10, he was already lv30+ by slaughtering countless bees and learnt the move "God of Sword", and hence his net nickname.
    FYR most people end the game at lv50-60
    Edit: Oh no according to the ref he was lv71 when finally set foot out of the town.

    This is me in literally every game. Because I have no interest in playing the game once the main storyline is done, I finish all the side quests before that so when I get to the main quest's final boss I'm usually one hit and done. 😆
