I'm thinking about doing a bad playthrough where I select all the wrong/funny choices just to see what happens. But if I do this will I still be able to get most of the things that depend on swashbuckler rating (Like Ryu-Kan)?
I've thought about that for a long time, but have yet to do it.
As for Ryu, you will have problems. Back when I played the game for my first time, I wasn't aware of how it worked and almost didn't get him. But if you're aiming at worst possible title, remember to run from many fights. :D
