#3438: Blast Away

This Comic's Cast:

In this instance I'm thinking of Octopath Traveler, with its shield break system, although I'm sure there are other games that have used a similar "weaken enemy with X attack, and then blast away" mechanic. I don't play a ton of modern RPGs so I'll just assume every game released now has something like that and move on.


When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
