Not only you can understand boss banter [[spoiler: and it becomes clear they are not there to stop your progression, they attack you because ''you entered their home and are slaughtering their loved ones'']] but collecting all weapons and going through all the endings will end with [[spoiler:your save files be erased.]] Also sidequests in general mock the player with NPC's calling you that idiot who'll do anything for cash and one even gives zero reward.
