Well, if you've paid for a copy and they won't let you activate it, then what is wrong with breaking the activation system so you can get around that, or obtaining a copy of the product you legally purchased (and which is not even end of life yet) in a manner that allows you get around their ridiculous DRM?

After watching Fate/Zero Episode 1 I can't help but feel that there were some aspects that should have been covered in Fate and UBW route. Namely Sakura's situation which was only revealed in HF, honestly I felt that the Fate and UBW routes simply brushed her aside. And sort of makes you wonder what kind of life she has after the war.

Out of the 3 heroines I dislike Sakura and yet I feel her character needs to be concluded in the other routes.

Spoiler for Fate/Zero:


I also don't feel that one route is more important than the rest...

Well it's true. All route are equally important, and that's what I like about Fate stay night.

Well, it would have been nice, but I'm not sure how they could have done that without spoilering the plot of HF itself.

Yeah....

I dislike the Fate and (especially) UBW endings for this reason. They're played as "happy endings" and yet, behind the scenes, Sakura is left to be tortured by Zouken indefinitely.

Yeah, I wish Nasu would give at least some indication of what happens to her.

Quote:
Seriously someone needs to kill Zokan
Yeah....

That's another thing that really irritates me with the Fate and UBW endings. How Zouken basically gets off scot-free for everything he's done.

Also, that's not really a spoiler, it's stated in the game that she was with the Matous for eleven years prior to FSN.

I think the problem with Sakura's situation for Fate and UBW is due to how Zouken is characterized and probably Nasu's fault as well. For Sakura to be saved, Zouken has to be defeated but he isn't even introduced at all in Fate or UBW.

And even if he was introduced in Fate or UBW, I think it was said he wasn't even planning on getting involved in the 5th war.

I honestly just think Nasu wrote Fate first, then UBW, and HF last. When he finished HF, he probably facepalmed or something and realized if he wanted to address Sakura's situation he would have to re-write Fate/UBW quite a bit and make Zouken the big bad guy instead of Kotomine and Gilgamesh for those two routes. But that would also mean having to re-do Zouken's characterization as well and where his soul is.

Now if Zouken had been portrayed as the big bad guy in Fate and UBW, then it would of address Sakura's situation without having to possibly spoil the plot for HF.

Well, yeah. The whole way her situation is set up makes it hard to save her "incidentally".

Yeah, exactly. But, if he was, it'd be a spoiler, so....

That's probably partially true.

He almost certainly did write Fate and UBW before HF, but equally I think he had decided on Sakura's backstory before he actually wrote Fate and UBW in any detail. Certainly, there is enough foreshadowing in the first two routes that it's clear that Nasu had HF in mind when he wrote them, at least in part.

The problem with that is that it'd have made HF somewhat more anti-climatic. Also, given how Zouken is, addressing Sakura's situation without spoilering it would be very difficult.

It's all about the heroine in each route. It happens in so many eroges. And I think leaving Sakura out of Fate and UBW made the drama of HF that much more powerful. There is no single route where everyone makes it out perfectly. They are separate stories, after all.

Yep, same kind of writing in Tsukihime. It's definately something Nasu does deliberately, not some kind of oversight. In each ending the minor characters of the route get shafted, and some serious issue is left unresolved. It's not a problem as long as he doesn't make sequels.

Not to mention Nasu is a major troll.

It makes the ending of the first two routes totally shit in hindsight, though, especially given Sakura's relationship to Rin.

Plus, I don't recall seeing Saber getting shafted in UBW, or Rin getting shafted in any route, so why should Sakura be ignored?

Screw that. Ilya's death in UBW almost made me cry. Saber's death in HF pissed me off. And Sakura's absence in the other two disturbed the hell out of me.

I want to save them all. DX

heheheh well I think that's why the games are awesome. The game makes you care for the characters to much that when you get the classic Nasu ending you just want to go to japan and kick his ass.

Yes I confess, I tried to save saber at the end in HF

I think the normal ending in UBW is the closest to everyone happy of course you need to overlook the fact that Sakura would continue under zouken vigilant care

And Ilya well this one its just sad anyway you look at it but we will find out more about it in fate /zero.

Ilia truly is one you can't save no matter what.

In what way is UBW Good the closest to everyone being happy? Rider is dead, Ilya is dead and Sakura (who is Rin's sister and who Shirou sees as "family", remember) is still being tortured, with no obvious way to save her even if they do find out.

Well, it was already admitted that Sakuras situation has to be overlooked to consider that a good ending (and at this point in the game you don't know anything about what will happen in the 3rd route), Rider is a servant so one doesn't expect her to stay in this world (tbh I found her presence in the HF true end even a bit awkward) and Ilya would have died soon anyway, so this route is probably one of the most positive endings F/SN has to offer, though it of course depends on the player's priorities

Paradoxically, I consider UBW Good End to be the worst one since it felt like the cheapest.

Well, my analysis of this good end was under different aspects... I'm no fan of that ending either (This smiley is overused)

hehehe just as Auria said I was talking in terms of Nasu "happy endings".

Just as the tiger dojo says in life you just cant have it all.

About Rider surviving in HF (pure speculation here) I think that one comes from the fact that ataraxia was already an on going project and Stheno and Euryale (rider/medea sisters) existed at least as drawings since the initial FSN.
