Which Octopath Traveler Are You?

1542 ratings | 57003 views
Octopath Traveler is a Japanese role-playing game with eight characters. Each of them has their own origin story. Each of those origin stories ends with that character deciding to leave their home and travel the world. You start by picking one character. Then you encounter all of the others during your journey. They each have traits that help one another out in different ways. You are free to mix and match party members to accommodate battle situations. However: the character you choose first must always be in your party when you play the rest of the game. Which of the eight characters will you choose? Which *should* you choose? Maybe those are different questions, and maybe both of them are impossible to answer. Well, here's a video dedicated to finding an answer, anyway.

I chose Therion, because he looked awesome. Simple as that. 😂 I haven’t regretted my decision yet.

FYI: Bishop is an ecclesiastical title across a lot of christian churches not just the Catholic ones, in particular the Protestant Church of England uses them and they don't have a celibacy rule.

*Beginning of video:* Uhm... Is this guy on drugs? *End of Video:* Am... Am I on drugs? Why. Why is this so soothing? Edit: I wanted to start with Ophelia, but I started with H'aanit, because I like jumping to conclusions.

I started primrose, but kinda wished I started with Cyrus, ophilia or olberic. It’s a great game though.

Also, I have important life advice specifically for Tim: for your safety, please don’t ever play the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VII in English. Experienced simultaneously, the wacky localization script and dummied-in MIDI soundtrack may trigger severe heart palpitations.
Eli F (1 month ago)
“Infinite Undiscovery” (suggestive poetic nonsense) is a way, uhhh, “better” name than “Octopath Traveler” (thesaurus-stained word diarrhea). “Octopath Traveler” is truly the bottom of the Bad JRPG Name Barrel I’m sorry Tim Though I guess nothing bottoms out “Bravely Default”.

What’s wrong with your voice?
Kotaku (1 month ago)
Skank Hunt it’s how i talk. btw if you only watched like four seconds of this video before making this comment because you disagree with kotaku’s review of the game and presume that the person narrating this video is the person who reviewed the game, let me inform you that this video is in fact very different from the kotaku review of this game. for example, it was made by a different person (me) . . . :-O i make this distinction because a LOT of people are sending me hate because of that review! if however you just dislike my voice—close the tab, dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tim, if you think Kill Bill is worse than Death Proof, we have a problem.

Jared Johnson deathproof at least has a punchline, and its kung fu scenes are better (that’s a burn on kill bill’s kung fu scenes)

I started the Prologue demo with Alfyn. He definitely seems like one of the intended starting characters, of course not the true intended starting character. Alfyn's open ended Prologue leaves a lot of room for the whole Travelling aspect. While there might be story markers, there's really nothing that shouts "Hey you should probably go here first!" because Alfyn has no true goal at the beginning of his first chapter. Just "explore the world and help people!". I ended up finding Primrose first on the route I took.

Where's the 30 minute linguistic analysis of H'aanit's dialect???
asaka616 (1 month ago)
Annoying that the translation team decided to make H'Aanit and her people speak the eay they do when in Japanese they speak the same dialect as all the other characters. I hate when translations take extreme liberties like that.

I was going to work my way clockwise on the map in the demo starting with Ophelia. I did lose a few of my bonkers with this video and will go counter-clockwise instead when I buy the full game, because old English > hardcover first editions. It’s good that you did all the stories for me, so now I don’t have to lose the rest of my bonkers. I also want to see a vid about why Kill Bill is the worst Quentin Tarantino movie.
ASquared (1 month ago)
Tressa's my favorite too!
Adam Hawks (2 months ago)
To all those who say “Primroses story is the darkest! 😱😰” No No Her BACKSTORY is dark. That’s it. Everyone’s stories go dark at least once. Tressa and the exploitation of a city, their men, and they’re lack of merchant knowledge Cyrus and his journey that leads to a cultish man kidnapping woman, men, and children, sacrificing them all for a dark ritual. Ophelia with child kidnapping and death threats. I haven’t played the other ones yet but I ASSURE YOU, they all have serious moments.

Ah ok, makes sense. I'm up to Primrose now, and so far enjoying the hell out of it. But I will the say the repetitive nature of everyone's chapter 1 is a bit worrying
Kotaku (2 months ago)
Listonosh it is the same skill on paper, yes, though the people it’s possible for them to recruit differ

Crazy Idea- take us unwashed mashes through the majesty of some of these underappreciated JRPGS you mentioned in this video. Whether it be a 10 min rundown or a 1-hour epic, I for one, will watch even second of it. And I will LOVE IT. I also won't die stupid., although I'm very hungry. I always say this - but you, Tim, are the very finest scholar of language and ewntertainment, I just want more.
Dee Dubya (2 months ago)
Wow, a reply - incoming cringe... "Senpai noticed me!". Any one of those JRPGs you flashed on the screen getting their own video would be just gravy. I also do not own a switch and am a little tired of the coverage itr gets but Octopath is a HUGE reason to buy one. Also, I'm still waiting for the next episode of your FFVII series. Just do it live without the editing. The one you did in that format was perfectly fine.
Kotaku (2 months ago)
Dee Dubya i’d LOVE to do an anearth video. i have it running in an emulator over here. i wish there was a fan translation . . . that’d make it easier to make a video for a wide enough audience lol

You know, before watching this, I didn't really know anything about Octopath Traveler. I don't even own a Switch, though I thought I might get one sometime in the next year for something like BotW. This review/explanation has put this game on my "would buy first" list, and has reignited my desire to purchase a Switch. Awesome work as always, Tim.

WHAT. Hateful Eight is easily the worst Tarantino movie. So contrived, so stupid. The """"twist"""" of guns planted under the tables and god damn channing tatum under the floor is the most eye rolling nonsensical bullshit Ive ever seen. Plus the dialog was by far the most masturbatory QT has ever been. It's an awful movie. And this is from a QT fan boy. Here are the true power rankings: 1. Jackie Brown 2. Pulp Fiction (I guess) 3. Inglorious Bastards 4. Reservoir Dogs 5. Kill Bill 2 6. Kill Bill 1 7. Django Unchained 8. Hateful Eight And really rankings 3-7 are extremely tight for me IMO.
Mase (2 months ago)
Kill Bill has more katana's, bruce lee jump suits, and eye plucking of a one-eyed person, therefore it is auto better than H8. I rest my case.
Kotaku (2 months ago)
Mase i’ll admit h8ful hasn’t marinated enough for me, though lordy i watched KB a couple months back and it is really noodly n waffly. if you separate them into two films i can see part 2 escaping from the bottom of the barrel though i choose to take them as one (so does QT, if his numbering is any indication). so for me they sit together beneath . . . hateful eight lol

PSA: Whichever character you choose at the beginning, is going to be your MAIN character, in the sense that he or she can NEVER leave your party. ...You are able to have a party of 4 characters, and can swap out characters as you wish between the other Octopath Travelers (once you have them available), but you CANNOT swap out your starting character. So choose carefully. I chose Cyrus as my starter and i couldn't be happier. He's like a Sherlock Holmes with mage spells. Dope.
Andrew Izquierdo (2 months ago)
Kotaku oh that's interesting, had no idea about that. Thanks for the response!
Kotaku (2 months ago)
Andrew Izquierdo as i pointed out in other comments, you actually CAN swap your main character out, after you complete their main story!! (which is a good way to wind up with four highly leveled characters)
