Hindsight Is 20/20 [Wasteland 3]
Wasteland 3 is all about weighing series of bad options. As the Desert Rangers, you’re invited to a new area of the country ruled by insane warlords. To defeat them, you’ll have to make alliances and play politics with farcical gangs of psychopathic nincompoops — all to get a mostly okay ending. Or a bad ending if you play your cards all wrong.
By making the exact right choices (and there are a lot of them) you can decide to take Colorado for yourself. Instead of deposing the evil leader and handing the reigns to an ally — you can go rogue and rule yourself. Doing that requires making the right friends and picking the right advisors. You’ll need to use your skills to talk everyone into going along with the scheme. And even then things might not work out so well.
But it’s still an awesome little ending. The heroic Desert Rangers aren’t so heroic sometimes.
The Whole Reason The Game Exists [Persona 5: Royal]
Persona 5: Royal exists simply to have a secret ending. This new addition to one of the best JRPGs ever includes an entire alternate ending path — and this is one of the biggest secret endings to date. The regular ending might take you 100 hours to beat. This extra ending? It runs around 120 hours. That’s +20 hours just to play through a new ending route.
While the ending itself is awesome — including an all-new villain, new character to play with, and a massive dungeon — unlocking it isn’t too difficult. The only thing terrifying about this secret ending is that someone might play for 100~ hours and still not unlock it. We’ve got a guide right here — but the basic gist is that you need to fully max-out the new teacher in town. There’s a counselor in school that seems pointless. Max your social link with that guy! He isn’t as pointless as he seems.
