I loved it when I played it, got excited for Fates, loved BR and CQ but disliked Revelation (which is just a bonus route anyway and I bought the DLC on sales so I ignore its existence), but it's true for me as well, Fates is still way more fresh in my mind than Awakening. Maybe I'll replay both soon.

Is anybody else just not interested in the new Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. I feel like playing as V before the end of the game just makes it not that interesting, like the writers might force some dumb moral choice on us and it's like, I don't care about Night City anymore I'm going Devil ending every time. And having to deal with the chip and Johnny some more. It might've been cooler with a new protag.

I think BR personally is around Awakening-tier for me where I enjoyed it but it didn't stick for me much. Revelations is… I can't even remember if I played it, kek. CQ though, I replayed the shit out of. I logged 200+ hours on Fates and I think around 3/4ths of that was just replays of CQ (yes, I do have the 'tism)

Just played NORCO and liked it a lot. Set primarily in an alternate future version of the real refinery town of Norco, Louisiana, where AI and robots are more commonplace. You play as a female protagonist who returns to Norco after discovering her mother died of cancer, and a mystery unfolds. Very atmospheric game with writing that is both good (prose and story setup) and kinda bad (story resolution). It's occasionally creepy but also pretty funny and made me laugh out loud a couple times. If you liked games like Backbone, Night in the Woods, and Kentucky Route Zero (haven't played this one personally but they're both Southern Gothic), you'll probably like NORCO. I've also seen comparisons to Disco Elysium due to the literary descriptions and general atmosphere.

I've been playing SIGNALIS for about six hours and I absolutely love it so far. The inspiration from Silent Hill and Resident Evil is obvious but it still has its own aesthetic and atmosphere. It was developed by a mainly two-person team (a man and woman I THINK) and nearly all the characters and enemies are female. It's full of literary and art references in a way that feels purposeful rather than pretentious. Plus it's decently challenging, with a casual mode if you prefer.

Any other Geometry Dash nonas here? I played lite in middle school but I recently bought the full version on my pc and have been playing non stop. I would like to become a god at it someday. It does get pretty lonely when the community is mostly twelve year olds and man-children, though, so it would be nice to make friends from here that play the game. If you haven't played it but like rhythm games, you should totally check it out, the lite version is free on ios.

I saw that but their post was mostly conjecture and I couldn't find any actual proof. They said it seemed like a tranny made it because the protagonist "walks weird" but I don't get that criticism at all, she's not human for one thing and she's creeping/sneaking because it's a horror game, there's nothing weird about her walk cycle. I researched the devs and there's hardly any info about them.

That reminds me of when DMC5 just got released and Itsuno liked a lot of posts about it on twitter, including some explicit but not pornographic just yet Nero/V art before everyone knew they're father and son which means it was gay incest.

Nta but it's not, those are two names that are commonly used by western trannies. Yuri especially (because it's the name of their favourite porn), unless the dev is japanese or a slav there's a huge chance it's a tranny.

No. 263448

>>263444
They're German. I do suspect Yuri could be a troon because in my research, the company rose-engine is sometimes credited to Yuri and Barbara and sometimes Alex and Barbara. I don't think the members of the company have changed because they say they say they have been developing the game together for 8 years. If Yuri transitioned at some point, it could be that Barbara is a troon and influenced him, OR she's just a handmaiden. I still like the game a lot even if it's made by troons because there's nothing objectionable in it imo, but I just WANT it to be (even partially) the passion project of a woman.

samefagging, but this is the "retarded" way the protagonist walks. Honestly I can empathize with the anon in the MtF thread, I'm on edge anytime I hear about women in game development because at this point I just assume it's a troon. But there is really nothing wrong with this walk cycle kek.

No. 263454

>>263444
>>263448
Idk guys, Barbara is a normal name, I know a few Barbaras IRL and they're all women, I don't spend too much time on mtf threads and it would never occur to me to even think that it's any indicator of tranny-ism. Yuri sounds like a pseudonym and you can't blame a woman to not want to use her real name in gamedev either; and given that person has "they" pronoun on twitter I'd be much more keen on assuming it's a fakeboi, not other way around. Women do gamedev too, it sucks people always jump to a conclusion it has to be an undercover scrote. I don't know anons, I just want to believe

No. 263456

>>263454
That's fair anon. To be honest I've been let down so many times that I don't have much faith anymore. Women in gamedev are great but their games often get ignored because they're not scrotish enough and if a game isn't for scrotes then it's automatically uninteresting. Plus men tend to trample over women when it comes to gaming. Just think about all the "female" esport teams being all troons.

I get you tbh, the scenarios look kind of dark for some reason, I would've expected it to be as well more like the mobile 2D game, a more pastel palette at first or something.
And I also would've expected it to be more like running around and doing fashion fights with random people, but this trailer is showing something definitely more awesome! It's better than just fashion fights, you get to use the outfits in a way that kind of makes sense and you get to explore a cool fantasy land with functional clothes that are pretty.

The creator himself being a TiM whose troon name is Madeline makes me think the character is just his pathetic self-insert, which makes it even creepier that he's depicted as this 21 year old 'legal loli.' But of course the real thing will always look like a hulking male he is kek.

Anynonna picked up The Knight Witch yet? I started playing it a few days ago and already can't put it down. It's a shoot-em-up metroidvania bullet hell with some of the best writing I've encountered in a game lately. And our character is a 35 year old married woman!! I can't remember the last time I played a game with a female lead older than her late 20s, let alone a game where we don't lose our spouse in the inciting tragedy.
The gameplay itself is challenging but there are cheat codes programmed into the game if you want an easier time getting through levels to experience the story (I've had three cheats equipped since partway through the tutorial, but I'm bad at vidya.) I'm in the third act of the game and excited to finish it, but wanted to share it with all of you first!

I played celeste a few years back and the creator wasn't out as trans yet and his male name was listed on the game credits so it was wild to me to see he later chose the protagonist's name as his own. Honestly it seems more like social contagion and retconning to me but who knows. The story itself had basically the acceptance and commitment therapy basics where you shouln't see mental health problems as an evil part of you that needs to be destroyed but to accept them and learn how to deal with the feelings instead. I didnt see the trans parallels when I played anyway, maybe my brain was too innocent.
The real bummer was finding out the composer is trans though, I was happy to see a woman composer be thriving in videogames but ofc it's not…

this is the most autistic thing ever but I can't resist trying to 100% games and sink countless hours into them grinding for achievements (if it's either a game I really like or one that looks somewhat easy to 100%). it causes me to take forever just to get through a single game. right now I'm slowly making my way through the yakuza kiwami completion list plus harukas requests to get the last remaining achievements and get my 100% completion dopamine hit kek I don't know why I can't stop myself from wasting so much time on this

I backed TemTem, that Pokemon-inspired game, when it first ran on Kickstarter but I only played it for the first time this year. I accidentally hit randomize during the character customization and just built my character off of that. I didn't realize until down the line that the randomizer chose the male body type. It does that stupid thing where it doesn't outright say you choose to play as a boy or a girl, but has only 2 body type options anyway–so much for muh gender diversity. Anyway, I've been playing as a crossdresser this whole time kek. I can't change it either. I wanted to reset my game, but you can't until you've played so many hours and I'll lose the username I reserved in the original Kickstarter. So I decided I'll never touch the game again kek didn't have the best impression of the game either

I will probably watch someone stream it out of sheer curiosity, but I don't see it being as good as the original. Not necessarily because kojima won't be apart of it (tbh, it annoys the fuck out of me that people always ignore the fact that there were multiple writers and the localization team did a lot of heavy lifting) but i just dont think it will have the same charm. especially if they don't get the same voice actors we would get a glorious HD rendering of solid snake tho, so it might be worth it just for that

Once you homebrew your 3ds you'll be able to play games from any region! I use https://hshop.erista.me/ to download games. You should be able to find whatever language version you want. If the region of the game doesn't match your 3ds (for instance playing an English game on a Japanese console) you'll need to use a homebrew app called Luma Locale Switcher to change the game's region to match your 3ds. It's pretty easy to use though! I had to do that because I have 2 Japanese 3ds consoles (why does JP have the best special editions orz)

Though some games are "global" meaning they aren't region locked!

It does imo, there's tonnes of outfits and I think a new one is released weekly. Some are definitely coomerish, but there's so many to choose from. You can also mix and match outfit parts and create unique looks. Valoren is a full plate armour outfit available for all classes, I quite like it.

Job with crews on pillages which consist of various puzzles such as carpentry, bilging, sailing, etc. Fight other vessels to plunder booty. There are also parlor games such as poker, spades, hearts… After you build up some wealth you can customize your outfits, buy a house.

I don't play a lot of games lately, and mostly it's old as fuck shit that I've played for 10 years straight (M&B, CK2, modded HL), but recently I've been thinking about buying a gaming laptop (I need a laptop over a PC because of reasons). The problem is, I don't think that it would be a worthwhile purchase. I can get a regular laptop for a way cheaper price than a gaming laptop, but I don't play a lot of games (especially modern ones), so obviously I don't need it that much. On other hand, a regular laptop has an absolutely shitty video card, so I sure it will struggle running most games. What do, nonnas? The price is considerable, but for some reason I really want a good gaming laptop, but for what? Playing FNV for millions of times? It's difficult to choose. I don't like playing games anymore, but sometimes I like to spend an evening playing a session of CKII, but spending twice as much on a laptop is a bit too much for me for something that I do only occasionally.
For the record, I'm choosing between ASUS TUF Gaming F15 and ASUS X515. With the later I also can buy a drawing tablet on top of that, which I also need. Sorry if off-topic, but it still kinda gaming related, so…

I say as long as it can handle games up to, say, Skyrim-era, and can handle a game that could have dozens of mods, you'll be fine. I prefer laptops over a PC myself, I've been using them for 10+ years now. I managed to play Mass Effect 2 on a shitty Macbook that had taken a beating during college, and I was happy as a clam.

I finally beat SMT5 and went with the law ending. I managed to do almost all the side quests except the one that requires beating Shiva because fuck that, I got all the mimans and amalgams, and I found the last boss fight to be way easier than the second fight against Zeus because I didn't get the true neutral ending. Fuck Chiyoda, easily the worst part of the game.

Anyway, I'm now going back to Pokemon Legend Arceus, which I started months ago and I'm now done with the tutorial and I'm given missions here and there. I'm still at the very beginning of the game though. How long is it if I want to 100% the game? Is it possible to complete the pokedex without trading, since it's a spinoff? I'm guessing it's still an easy game like the rest of the series compared to SMT, because I took a long time beating SMT5 but it was still very intense.

Started Trails of Cold Steel today and I'm a little (a lot) miserable about all of the coomerbait perv gags… It's jarring coming right off of Trails in the Sky and Estelle threatening violence to moids. I miss my girl!
I do enjoy the world and lore of these games a lot though, so I'll persevere.

the dex isn't too hard to fill since it inly has a few hundred pokes. pretty sure you can finish without trading, there's an item you can buy to evolve pokes like gengar that normally evolve by trading.

I bought the La Pucelle/Rhapsody combo pack port for the switch and it's very fun so far. La Pucelle has some coomer elements but I like the main character from what I've played so far. I've been absolutely loving Rhapsody and would have been obsessed with it had I played it as a little girl. The only real nitpick I have is with the musical numbers which I feel could have been improved by making them a sort mini rhythm game segment.

My main issue with Rhapsody was the dungeon design. Maybe they changed this in later releases, but on the playstation it seemed like every dungeon was just a boring maze with no map.

Hi nonnies, would you recommend Monster Hunter Rise for a casual gamer? Someone recommended it to me and it's on sale on the nintendo eshop for just under $40 right now with the sunbreak expansion+dlc. I don't usually play games very often but my top two switch games are ACNH and BOTW.

I'd look up gameplay first. It's a pretty casual MH game, but MH in general has a learning curve and its def not for everyone. Its more arcadey than open world, loop of prepare for fight -> fight monster -> make weapon/armor. there's some chill exploration elements; you can explore the maps and find hidden stuff.

Now, my biased gamer take: Rise/Sunbreak are amazing and worth the money lol

No. 268550

So I was watching a video on Youtube about one of my favorite computer game companies, Humongous Entertainment. They made games like Freddi Fish, Putt-Putt, Pajama Sam, etc. The video went over the demise of the company, and I was so fucking pissed when I learned about a game that they were making at the time of their demise.

"A Gas Pocket Adventure: Aliens Ate My Cookies" is picrel. At the time of its development, H.E. was bought by Infogrames, the French video game publishers, and Infogrames was losing money and looking to cut corners. They laid off 40% of H.E.'s staff (in a really shitty, impersonal way too), and then they cancelled "Aliens Ate My Cookies". Their reason? "Infogrames did not have faith in a game featuring a female protagonist." FUCK INFOGRAMES. FREDDI FISH WAS A GIRL YOU FUCKING FROG SCROTES

I would honestly recommend looking into some kind of platformers. I usually play something like Risk Of Rain 2 (the 1st game is good too, but it's a lot more different and difficult), it's really pretty and IMO you don't have to think too much. To me it turned out to be quite easy once i got a crossbow girl, you just spam buttons and run around random worlds. Speaking of which, Lost In Random is an insanely beautiful game!
Other than that, I would recommend something like Project Hospital if you are into the genre, but in my honest opinion, Heart's Medicine is the best 'time management' game on steam, and it has an incredibly sweet story, very cute!

You can get the game to click in one playthrough, but Elysium shines from repeating the game with different detective builds, as your skills partially influence Detective's personality and how he can respond to situations.

Seriously, the design choices in Cold Steel are so jarring. Some designs, like Alisa's, outright turn me off with how glaringly mismatched and pandery they are.

I don't know… Aside from the initial scene with Alisa falling boobfirst into Rean, I'm at least alright with their writing so far.

I was going to keep playing Pokemon Legend Arceus but I got distracted by Persona 5 Royal. I wanted to just be done with the first arc/the tutorial and put it aside for once I beat Pokemon Legend Arceus but maybe I'll do the reverse instead. I played P3P and P4G a decade ago and loved them, then played a bunch of other, much harder Megaten games so now I'm just half-assing everything because I know I'll beat this game very easily on normal. I played the original at an acquaintance's place long ago and only did the first two arcs, and it was annoying as fuck because the guy was annoying himself and we only saw each other from time to time so just going through that part of the game took months. I'm already having way more fun right now.

By the way, I accumulated a lot of gold coins in my Nintendo account so I decided to buy a year of Nintendo Online subscription with a discount. I still play ACNH from time to time, and I have a bunch of duplicate DIY recipes, if anyone would be interested in visiting my island. I posted codes in the AC thread a few months ago when I used the free trial and some anons came and took a bunch of recipes, clothes and pieces of furniture so I'm sure other anons would be interested as well.

>The English voice acting is bad
Can't you just switch to the Japanese voice acting? I do that as soon as it's possible because I'm ESL and I don't see why I would have to endure this torture when it's not even the original stuff. Is the story as botched as Fates when it comes to translation? I've seen rumors about that.

>I'm kinda sad I bought this for full price

Shit like this is why I'm asking about the game. It looks like shit and it's not like the gameplay is different from the previous games. Did you buy a physical copy? Because if that's the case, at least you could just sell it later even if it's at a loss. I think I'll just replay Awakening, Birthright and Conquest and just stick to that, and maybe try to beat Sacred Stones once and for all instead of buying this one.

I finished Hades a month ago and I've currently got Binding of Isaac and Crypt of the Necrodancer on my wishlist, but I'd love to know your gulls faves. Also purchased Vampire Survivors for £4 jermafag and after only an hour of gameplay I'd recommend it!! It's so much fun and I've heard so many great things about it. I also purchased Muse Dash because it was on sale for cheap, though I'm not particularly excited about the waifushit that horny Steam moids are talking about.

Yes! I loved its atmosphere so much. I can't believe it gave me such a weird sense of nostalgia considering I wasn't actually on the internet in the 90s.
>>266568
I feel the same way about it not living up to the hype, and I definitely can imagine TRAs gleefully claiming its because it's a reflection of ~le ebil JKR~, and not because it just might not be a good game? I'm excited nonetheless. Gonna make a terf witch in Joanne's honour.

Oh! Vampire Survivor is such a fun and incredibly easy game, best use of a couple of hours in my opinion. My only frustration is I don’t know how to get the weapon upgrades. I’ve looked it up and followed what I could find but even then nothing worked. Any one out there with recommendations or do I just need to grind and put more hours into it? Currently I only have the first 2 places unlocked

I'm the anon that's playing it. I feel the same, it's painful to see FE turned into gachashit tier. The story and writing are pretty shallow so far. It seems really childish? (I read that they wanted to bring in a younger fanbase which is why they went this direction with Mika Pikazo etc) I'm on chapter 12, and I don't find any of the characters particularly likeable, it's probably the bad writing and ugly designs kek. But I'm going to power through and reserve my final judgement for when I finish the game.

I decided to get it and don't really know how to feel about it right now. I'm still in the early chapters, but I keep thinking how I I want to replay Awakening. If only my 3DS didn't destroy my wrists these days kek I agree with others that it feels like they want to rope in Genshin players and Heroes players instead of making a game for their core audience (outside of tossing in fan favorite characters). The animations and 3D animations do look better I'll give it that. My biggest pains are the art direction. All the female characters look like they're from fucking Whoville. F!Alear looks cross eyed all the time and it kills me how her tie is tucked under a bodice to emphasize her boobs. I keep thinking how annoying that would be to wear kek. Moids are screeching that this is a girl game now because of treehouse localisation and the male character designs, but they don't have an ikemen look at all to me. Actually they feel like apology designs to scrotes for making 3H so female-friendly. Anyway, shows what I value in a game kek. Wish I could give more input on the gameplay.

I understand why companies make changes in localization for palatability (i.e. the pedophilia removal). It turns profit for them to appeal to the audience's sensibilities. But I will never understand wokeoids who defend it? Why are you proud that they've made it easier on your conscience to give money to the company that put gross shit in the game in the first place?

It's actually the moids who are sperging on Twitter about how the localization is shit because they removed the romance (picrel). They're throwing fits that the 11-year-old girl doesn't confess her love to you, as if that somehow benefits or changes the story in any way. Besides, these changes are worthless lolicon males, they'll find the next underage anime girl of the week to jack it to tomorrow. People tend to play Fire Emblem games in English(if they're English speaking individuals), unless they're huge weebs.

Unfortunately, the coomers here are the ones in the right, but they don't look credible at all. I've seen many normal people complaining about it before as well for other games, and for FE Fates especially, but it went nowhere because now the localizers go to Japan to bother the devs directly on top of changing scripts and making characters OOC. For FE Fates people were complaining that the localization made sincere scenes between family members and friends look retarded because of memes and removed DLCs but retards thought we just wanted to have the petting minigame back and that everything else was intact.

This is definitely not a good thing. If you let a localization studio do whatever they want, they will eventually make changes that you also dislike. This time it was a change that you supported, but next time it might not be.
But this is actually not a good thing for you. Unlike anime, video game overseas sales actually matter. This shit is weird, even for japanese standards. And I think FE is a pretty well known franchise right? So it's not some weird weeb obscure game. In that case, it would be better if western audiences saw this and spoke against it en masse. If western audiences make a big deal about it, the japanese company would feel more obligated to avoid this in the future.

I'm pretty shocked at this and it's a shame it will remain hidden to most western players. Even in anime and manga, you do not normally see lolicon relationships unless you are specifically reading or watching lolicon manga/anime. I don't understand why they would think this was a good idea.

I mean they're right that localizers are incompetent idiots who shove their reddit tier memes and morality on video games that aren't theirs and it's a terrible thing, not that they're right for being lolicon. Engage seems to target a younger audience than Fates and 3H (especially Fates given how serious and depressing the story was meant to be before localizers ruined it) so I don't even think being able to date Anna is that bad if it was made with preteen players in mind tbh. The main character is still a self-insert after all. But then again I'm not playing Engage so maybe I'm wrong and there's some kind of twist in the story.

No. 271778

>>271625
I think that Anna wouldn't be as much of an issue if her type of character was a new introduction specifically in the installment intended to appeal to younger audiences. But because FE has had an ongoing issue with weirdly sexual loli designs, I take umbrage with her presence as a romance option.
In Rune Factory 4, for example, I don't have a problem with Kiel and Amber being romancable. Some adult players to find their romances uncomfortable, but I think that the argument that they're there for younger players is completely plausible.
Anna… I don't think so. Not when designs like Nowi and Nyx (love her writing, but really think they could have still gotten the point across with a different design) exist.

No. 271779

>>271778
I get why Nowi makes people uncomfortable, but Nyx acted so much like an adult that she just seemed like a regular womanlet to me, so Hayato or Tsukuyomi or whatever his name is was actually more of an equivalent to Nowi imo. Especially when you unlock his daughter and she explicitly says he's younger than she is, even though she's a teenager, and that shouldn't even listen to him.

No. 271783

>>271777
I think the target audience for Engage is adolescents, or imo teenagers to young adults. The main character is 17, which I think is a good middle ground. Plus, lolis don't exist to be attractive to young teens or kids, they're made to be attractive to pedophiles(inb4 "hurrrr they're fictional!!1", I know). I highly doubt these lolicon men are trying to be champions of anti-censorship, and are more just mad because they keep censoring the loli romances. In which case, it sucks to suck I guess.

Anyone who would say that on lc is either a scrote or is sadly way too optimistic and thinks moids romancing children in fiction doesn't have an impact in real life. But yes, the conversation should have been about poor localisation decision-making, rewriting characters to be more simplified and one-dimensional, etc. It's not so critique of localizers continues to be simply brushed off as creepy pedo spergs. Also it's funny and sad how people are trying to say writing Anna's romance is removing "muh lgbt rep". Gross.

When I was being sarcastic about LGB rep it was because of the other characters who friendzone the MC, not Anna because I saw screenshots of the girl with the braid dressed in pink who tearfully accepts the ring from the MC and says "allies for always!" in English and screenshots of the dark skinned girl and the MC in the epilogue about how they respect each other's freedom and sometimes eat BBQ together when they're all the same age.

I would have mentioned him if I weren't responding specifically to the possibility of excessively young romance options being present as an option for younger players, in which case the sexual designs of Nowi and Nyx are what most makes the likely intent of loli/shota characters' repeated inclusion clear.
This is also why I said that Nyx's writing isn't the issue for me. It's difficult to defend her design to those who are made uncomfortable by it because at the end of the day, it IS a preteen girl's body in extremely revealing clothing. It's made clear in the game that her complex about her appearance isn't just because she's a womanlet, she really did stop aging very young as a result of her curse.

No. 271803

>>271798
I think it's easy to ignore Nyx's looks because her portraits looks kind of normal and her 3D model isn't very detailed. It would have been way more obvious without dialogs if it were an HD game like 3H or Engage though I'll give you that.

I hate Aigis, she feels very out of place compared to the rest of the cast and is too fanservicey. Like, you'll have Yukari having nearly the same backstory as the MC and relating to that so they gradually become closer but her goals are her own from the beginning and Mitsuru and Fuuka act normally with the MC and you can date them if you want, meanwhile Aigis' purpose to be the mandatory "uwu I'm forever devoted to (you), MC-kun" waifu even in the main story. The whole appeal of this series is that it's about random teenagers (and adults in P2) being stuck in shitty supernatural situations, and then they shove a fucking waifu robot in the middle of the game. Teddie did the whole "I want to become a real boy" archetype way better since he's a shadow and is important since the very beginning of the game so he doesn't feel out of place at all and he gets plenty of development I can't stand his voice in English though… Other than her and Marie in P4G I don't think I dislike any of the main Persona characters nearly as much. I'm at the beginning of P5R though and if Morgana won't shut the fuck up he'll be on my shit list as well. I'm surprised the girl exclusive to P5R isn't shoved down my throat just yet like Marie and I started the second dungeon now.

Fire Emblem has always been sort of degenerate and Nintendo has had a long and exclusive relationship with it regardless. It's the bizarre double standard around what parts of it are accepted and the way its embraces compared to other comparably bad media that stands out.

Sorry to be a sperg, but a bunch of stuff in persona is pulled from Jungian psychology, and in particular the Velvet room attendant is supposed to be based on Jung's idea of the anima/animus, which is supposed to be like the feminine part of a man's soul/masculine part of a woman's soul respectively.
TLDR the velvet room attendant is specifically supposed to be the opposite sex of the mc and I don't think they'll change that. I also love Theo and I especially wish Atlus would just add a femc again like just about every other silent protagonist/self insert type jrpg has

nta but the attendants aren't based on the exact same concept in P1 and P2 iirc but it's been so long since I played them. One of them is literally just Kaneko's self-insert because a bunch of devs put themselves in P2 kek. However the Persona series takes place in the same timeline/universe as the Devil Summoner series, and Igor's equivalent is Victor and his assistant in Soul Hackers is Marie or Mary, and if anyone played Soul Hackers 2 I'd like to know if she shows up in that one. These two, Igor and all the Velvet Room attendants starting from P3 are named after characters from the Frankenstein novel iirc, I assume it's to reference the fact that they're not human but very similar to humans.

You have no reading comprehension or…? She's not meant to be slutty, that's how Inaba's people perceive her and so they spread rumors about that and that's why her dungeon and shadow look like this. By this logic Naoto really is a troon.

There's nothing deep about her character either way. She's so generic it hurts. Scrotes only like her because she's feminine and shows her skin. All of them are waifu baits but Naoto has some wise lines and was never the first choice.

No. 272047

>>272045
At least I can agree with Rise not being a deep complex character. She's just not slutty. I feel the same way for Yukiko, Kanji and Naoto tbh because the game is long, Yukiko is kind of bland and the others have their arc being resolved as soon as they join the party. And Naoto's issues with her work and other police officers all happen off-screen unfortunately.

She's waifu bait trash. As soon as she 'accepts' she's a woman, she gets all blushy and shy about her large breasts, especiallyin the social links. I couldn't stand her after that. Her story was interesting before that. That entire game has the worst characters in a persona game.

No. 272084

>>272054
You know what's funny? When I played P4G in 2013 and watched the anime in 2012 I thought her arc was exaggerated and just a hyperbole to prove the point that sexism in the workplace is bad and ageism is stupid because in our era who even tries to entirely hide being a woman just to be perceived as more competent by coworkers? Now her arc is even more relevant than when the game got released because of all the young girls and women transitioning or claiming they're NB just to seem less stupid or shallow even if they're not even noticing that's their reason for doing it.

No. 272089

>>272083
i don't think she's waifu bait (in p4 that'd be marie and rise lol) but i think it's more that the writers were incapable of writing a female character without making her simp for the mc. it's especially bad in 4 where they try to push this idea that heros got this harem of girls who want him at all times. i agree with >>272047, a lot of p4 characters feel bland and like they were just shoehorned in (and i never even thought about yukiko but youre right that she has 0 personality except haha bad at cooking, which is a joke atlus feels the need to shoehorn in every game for some reason)

Sage for persona sperging but I saw a lot of myself and my struggles with gender roles (albeit reversed) in his dungeon. He also had a crush on Naoto even when he thought she was a guy - I've always seen him as bi, but it doesn't really matter tbh. People argue about his sexuality a lot and consisdering this debate has been happening for nearly 15 years with no definitive answer it feels pointless to rehash. He's best boi regardless.

No. 272159

>>272091
NAYRT But she's not unjustified in disliking Naoto for her writing past her dungeon/her writing as a romance option. >>272089 is correctly identifying the issue with many female characters in this game, in that despite meaningful substance present in their writing… The writers are unable to get past the ultimate need for women to feed into a (assumed male) player's ego. That's something to be rightfully rubbed the wrong way by.

It's a shame that The Caligula Effect 2 ended up having TiF stuff in it, because in terms of topics addressed, it had a much higher hit ratio on sticking the landing. The gameplay is take it or leave it too, as is typical of Furyu's lower-budget work… But the writing gives ample food for thought to people who have also played the Persona games. It's a rather thoughtfully written game.

i wanna rant cuz i'm a personafag.
in p3 i like yukari the most, she feels the most "realistic" to me. akihiko and shinji are good husbando material, and koromaru is adorable.
fuukas voice is annoying af and she's kinda bland (ik its a common opinion), fuck ken for obvious reasons and also his route with femc is disgusting, everyone else is ok.
p4 i don't really like anyone that much but for ai. ai is really underrated imo. marie is a guilty pleasure cause i like tsunderes. but everyone else i find either kinda bland or annoying. the friendship dynamics are good outside of the links tho which makes up for it.
p5… is the worst. i didn't actually enjoy any characters social links. i feel like they could've done a lot better.
i thought hifumi was cute but her link is still kinda meh.
anns route annoys the shit out of me, which is a shame cause i liked her outside of it. kasumi got on my nerves a lot too but ig they kinda redeem it later.

I'm sick of being interrupted whenever I play P5R. Everytime I'm going further into a dungeon this retarded cat won't stop telling me I need to leave and go back next time because of some retarded cutscene that need to happen before I go in the next room or floor.

What point of the game are you playing? I remember being able to do every palace in two days, one for the route and one for the boss battle aside from the first two palaces where there's a bit of tutorial and story bits going on. Morgana's annoying but imo it gets toned down a lot as you progress.

>>272172
>kasumi got on my nerves a lot too but ig they kinda redeem it later.
The little character development she has gets obliterated at the end though. Some of her shady sides never get explored for some reason like her wishing to be her dead sister instead of wishing that she was still alive which could have been an interesting addition to the good girl uwu persona. As usual they bring up interesting comcepts but never explore them correctly.

I'm about to be done with the second dungeon. I was progressing well, was saving the characters' MP to be able to go as far as possible in one day and then Morgana told me to go back home.

Man, I always wanted the sims to include wheelchairs because when I was a kid I remember playing a sims game on gba and they had a character in a wheelchair and I thought that was a really cool thing to include since I had a friend in a wheelchair and also a family member, that was what we called a bit of diversity back in the day, I get why they wouldn't include this kinda thing in the pc game though but this whole "diversity" schtick baffles me. Girls with ridiculous big ass self harm scars and men in wigs and clothes that don't fit is apparently peak diversity these days. Are we still supposed to believe troons are an oppressed class while having enough power to get these companies tripping over themselves to accomodate them? What makes these updates so bad is that they're forcing it on people. You just can't deactivate dumb pronouns and shit and now you have this.

I'm normally pretty bad at Souls games/souls-likes but I've really been enjoying Death's Door. It has everything I thought I hated about this type of game, i.e. challenging boss fights with phases, waves of enemies attacking you all at once, savepoints that make you trek back to the boss room and so on, but the game is so much fun that I can't get mad even when I'm getting my shit kicked in.

I expected it to be like the other two games where the ending is similar to the beginning with Luka and Bayo getting married on a cruise in a restored NYC or whatever but what actually annoyed me was that Viola's mom was implied to be resurrected like all the Bayo and Jeannes who got absorbed bt the bald guy and she's not even trying to see her? Bitch what? I would have disowned her. I'm looking forward to the next game.

I forgot to add, I loved the environments, Tokyo and Paris were so accurate it was uncanny. Bayonetta 3's Paris is the most realistic one I've seen so far in fiction kek, I'm not even sarcastic, they even replaced the Orange stores with Citron Telecom. I loved that shit. Now I wish we could have entire stages in NYC because I'm an ameriboo but I guess that's what the beginning of Bayonetta 2 is about anyway, sort of.

It's true that they're well done, but I found most of them to be not very interesting. Tokyo was very grey, but that's just how cities are I guess. I didn't find the environments particularly appealing because 2 of them are just cities, which is what's outside my window. Egypt was quite nice, though. But that, and the imo lame design of the enemies left a lot ot be desired, visually.

Yeah the homunculi looked boring while the angels and demons looks iconic from the start. And on top of that it seems they wanted to reference Asian mythologies with them but it's not as in you face as usual besides the Sun Wukong boss fight (if that even counts as a boss fight)

its disappointing about the genre change.
i'm currently playing dragon age 2, and to be honest i feel like the series died with inquisition. like yes i would love to see more dragon age games, but i also know that no dragon age game is ever going to come close to how good origins was. 2, despite its flaws, still maintains a lot of the spirit of dao. inquisition to me felt soulless. i like solas enough to be interested in da4, but theres no way in hell i'm expecting it to be a good game. i'm actually surprised they've even made any progress with it; i figured it'd be stuck in development hell then quietly dropped

Man this sucks, why do troons have to ruin everything. DAO is one of my favorites games of all time, I consider it one of the best games I've ever played if not the best. DA2 was not as good but it was still pretty fun imo (it felt more like a spinoff than a sequel to me). Never got to beat DAI because of a living situation that resulted in me losing my gaming equipment but it seemed alright.

I remember the gamergate controversy and there was all that shit about "women in video games" and people losing their shit at women saying some video games are sexist. There were all those antisjw YouTubers screeching about how "men are the majority of gamers so why should games pander to women yadada" meanwhile games have to pander to troons now even though they're (supposedly) like .001% of the population.

Sorry for my autistic rant lmao.

You brought me back, anon. I remember the gamer gate controversies so vividly and many women were told to shut up and other horrible sexist slurs for speaking up about their experience in gaming. Now we get men LARPING as women, but everyone has to kiss their ass? Make it make sense. I really wish women didnt bend over backwards to please them because you know men dont give a shit about troons or being 'canceled'

I have not actually, I have not kept up with any DA (or ME) stuff since the fandom is insuffetable. I know I will play the game though and get angry and bitter at it. I love DA so much though, and seeing the directions the development is going is worrying. I bet my ass there will be multiple tranny party members and all the NPCs are just identity tickboxes.

krem was one thing but if this tranny director puts in an mtf companion i'll lose my shit. i am pretty certain there'll be some kind of non-binary they/them character, at least. maybe they'll explain it away as some dalish 'third gender' tripe lmao

this, it's crazy how that whole group of terminally online neckbeards ended up trooning or becoming chasers. given the way they view women (and their crippling porn addictions) it makes perfect sense though. they need to kill themselves.

> Oh, and party controls seem to have been removed—meaning you might not be able to switch between party members like you could in every other BioWare RPG. That last design choice feels very odd for a series whose core appeal was always “adventuring with your witty queer friends.”

"soy boy cult classic" jesus fuck i wish male "video essayists" (failed theaterkids) never existed so this game would have just remained off the radar. in both games you can see a small town & its citizens get transformed in under 2 weeks due to a deadly plague. characters & town feel realistic not just boilerplate shit. first one is novel for having 3 different characters PoV's of the same 12 days, personally this & the isolated quarantined plague town setting really drew me in even back when the translations were shit. some characters will lie to the city doctor and only tell town info to the more local doctor, you realize this on the second playthrough & your 12 days are wildly different for each 3, it's not like NG+. dialogue heavy & there's some real gems in the cast. game is old so it's a bit of a slog, u easily enable cheats. both games have a theater that no matter what puts on thematically relevant or prophetic plays at 12AM, second game has lucid dreaming. second game has one character but it's a full length game, graphically beautiful, less of a time sink than the first. if you want to dip your toes in you might want to pick this one, if you wanna jump right in pick classic HD. if any of this sounds interesting then buy it, if none of it does then skip it. i avoid video essays and fandom shit so idk how it's talked about, I tried to be succinct here. second character for the second game is being worked on.

Anyone else excited about the RE4 remake?
It looks stunning but I'm slightly worried that they seemed to be going for a more serious vibe and ditched the campy humor of the original

No. 274375

I want them to keep the campyness of the OG as well. REmake 2 felt really violent and that wasnt as bad, but RE4 was always kind of silly and I loved that. I pre ordered my copy and I'm hyped as hell, even though I hate Luis' new design so much.

Yep I'm looking forward to it too since I fancy Leon and he still looks cute but I share the same concerns. They focus more on realism and scariness now but the original had it's charm because of the goofiness.
