He talks to you every time you play the game, and in long, unskippable sentences.

He plays even after cutscenes,

I hate him.

Rufus should be in the dictionary under the definition "Annoying" that's ALL they would need to put.

I like that he gives reminders for some of the other things that can be done in the game, the things I might not think about doing right away. If a reminder is not needed, I use his time to do little things, let the dog out/in, grab a snack, refill a glass, etc. It's the tone and sound of his voice that gets to me. He sounds snooty and at times condescending.

Re, Mags or Tessa: I think the latter's worse, but I don't hate either. Mags doesn't annoy me. I think she's the best original character in TT, aside from some of the villains. She's the most fun and has the most sensible story presence. Alsoilikehervoiceeventhoughitsjustthesameasapplejackitsveryexpressive. I like Tessa's personality, but she's pointless in TT and more generic than Mags.

Even if opinions about SF are divided, at least we all agree that Rufus sucks. smilie I'm a fan of scholar characters and I was excited when I first met him, but then he had no important role in the plot, no interesting dialogue and only served to remind you what to do, even if you already did it.

He's got to be the most annoying character they've come up with.

Why you have to hear his speeches over and over again is beyond me.

Oddly enough there are some parts in the game where he says nothing and in fact you HAVE TO GO TO HIM to make him speak. If only they had done this 100% of the time---or at least at the end of the game. Or at least stop talking about time attack, Eon or score if you've done at least one.

RIP GhostRoaster. He's reanimated as TakeYourLemons but occasionally is resurrected from the beyond when needed.

i know, after he have tortured everyone with his saying for ages. he suddenly keep shut, then it is like he is just waiting to see if you notice him or not. rufus antisocial behavior is out of control.

And, to make it even worse, she not only has a more annoying voice than Rufus, they also got rid of upgrading multiple times in one go. So, every time you want a single upgrade, you have to listen to her voice.

I don't see the problem with Rufus. Just click a button and you could skip the cut scene, or at least silence him during that scene. I agree with Wreckingballbob, Mags is the worst NOC, far more so than Rufus to me.

I'm evil and hope he returns just to see people's reactions.

I don't understand why every bit of dialogue isn't instantly and completely skippable. Is there some programming limitation behind it, or did they really just want us to hear the same stuff over and over? Like, every time I restart the game or come back from a stage and want to upgrade, I have talk to Gorm and listen to the same exact line every time. Why is it necessary for me to talk to an NPC in order to use the Power Pod in Woodburrow, when the Power Pods in every other part of the game let me use them instantly without any NPC nonsense?


I still find the flashing elemental icon in the middle of the screen to be the most annoying thing, though. I only have to put up with NPCs for a short time, but the flashing elemental icon is pretty much constant. Sometimes it even covers up your character when you're moving toward the screen. HUD icons should never interfere with action that's on screen! That's, like, basic HUD 101!

Rufus is the main reason why I switch levels from the pause menu about a half minute before I beat my current level. It's been a while since I played SSF so I don't know if you can select a level at the level results screen.

In SF 3DS, there were a lot of unskippable cutscenes showing you where to go. They were there in order to guide young kids- Activision pressed the developers to add them. The same probably goes for all the other unskippable stuff in this series.

If Activision think kids need to be reminded by Rufus every time they play to try one of the bonus modes, they're really out of touch with their audience.

Anyway, he's not my most disliked NPC anymore. Flynn is, after how he acted and was so obnoxious during SC.
