I try not to get my hopes up, but if From Software ever blesses us with Bloodborne Part 2, I'll spontaneously produce enough milk to nourish every orphaned baby on Earth. We need more cool-ass female hunters in this world, and less GRRM.

No. 39889

I don't really think they would make Bloodborne 2 (sadly) But I fucking love bloodborne. They've made the old hunters dlc at least but I don't know what else there is left to the story. Perhaps continuing the ending choice where you become the new great one?

No. 39890

I’m tentatively hopeful that Elden Ring will be good but god why the fuck did they get him on board? I hope he’s only there to give guidance on the Nordic themes and not as a full on writer because I’ve grown to like Dark Souls’ style of storytelling. I don’t want some convoluted plot shit or character drama getting in the way of my sweet, lonely dark fantasy atmosphere.
Tbh my dream would be a game like DS’s setting but with more allowance in multiplayer without turning a game into MMO stat grind/gear trade cancer. Still no chat - I just want to gesture around with strangers to find things to kill together then the ability to sit down in chairs and eat with them afterwards. Maximum comfy.

Also I’m trying to craft a 1/12 cloak like Eileen’s to go on my dolls, it’s only at the drawing board right now but I’m planning to articulate it with wire and use feathers from… somewhere.

No. 39892

I'm picturing it being like Dark Souls where they just made sequels with a very similar storyline but with different settings and (mostly) different characters. From could just make the same game over and over again from here on out and I'd keep buying/playing it, because the Soulsborne formula is perfection for me.

I am so stocked to see my fave tragic love story play out in gorgeous graphics that I have decided to replay FFVII. I am at Gongaga already and I am relieved to find out this game is not as hard as I remembered, which is good as I don't really enjoy the random encounters. I goddamn love the plot and all the characters.
It's a really smart decision to drop Compilation and make it non-canon to the remake (hope they will not screw it up, but since Square has admitted that the Compilation was a cash grab due to a merge with Enix, I am being relucantly optimistic).

Judging by the new trailer and various quotes and hearsay, I think we will get to spend a lot of quality time with Aerith before her time comes. Everyone and their mother knows she is gonna get murdered by Sephiroth, so they cannot just shock us that it happens. SquareEnix is gonna try their best to make people love her so that their hearts are as broken as Cloud's once it happens.
Looking forward to crying my eyes out.

I wonder how will they deal with her death since it was surprisingly nongraphic in the original. You can't avoid some amount of blood now due to how realistic the graphics are. I hope it will not ruin the mood of the scene.

The newer Harvest Moon installments are not by the original publisher Marvelous Entertainment, but by Natsume who used to localize them. In the West, Harvest Moon now goes by the name "Story of Seasons". If you’re looking for a nice, relaxing and cute farming game, you should try the Story of Seasons games for the DS. They were all really well done with nice designs. Natsume still releases games under the name of "Harvest Moon", but they indeed are looking very, very bad.

There will also be a remake of Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town for the Switch soon! I am really excited for it and I will get the Switch just for this and Animal Crossing.

I still think about Mass Effect and how much I love the universe. I try to get into other sci-fi media and always find myself comparing it to ME.

I'm not optimistic, lol. I'm bitter they segued all of Bioware's best people into Anthem and left Andromedia with the scraps. They could easily remake ME1 and make it an AU or something if they want an easy redemption, but I'm sure they could screw that up, too.

ME3 has a casual option, can't remember if ME2 does but I'm pretty sure its Easy is manageable for people inexperienced with shooters. Unfortunately, ME1 fighting is a clunky mess regardless of the difficulty.

I've been playing Judgment / Judge Eyes lately. Compared to the Yakuza games, which this game takes place in the same city, Judgment is more slower paced and I like that a lot. I played the demo months ago and it was long as hell. Took like 3 hours to complete. I really like the change of pace, because I've had multiple instances in the Yakuza games where I felt rushed going from story point to story point, they made it seem like I had no time to wind down and relax.

What's the best JRPG to play to dip my toes into the genre? I always avoided JRPGs since they never really appealed to me and looked pretty boring, but people always hype them up and I want to give at least one game a fair chance since the closest I've come to playing a JRPG is Pokemon, lmao. Dragon Quest XI looks cool and I like the graphics but I'm not sure if it would be good for a complete beginner to the genre. The Persona games also interest me especially with how much praise they get but they kind of overwhelm me and again, not sure if it's the best choice for a newbie. I just don't want something grindy that feels like a chore instead of fun.
I have a PS4, PC, 3DS, and Switch, although right now I only have access to the last two. What do you anons think? Any recommendations or tips for a newcomer to the genre?

If you don't mind GBA graphics, play Mother 3. It's not the most typical, but it's fucking great and doesn't have enemy battles out of nowhere (you see the enemies on the screen and can avoid them).
You don't need to play the previous parts of the series to get the story and enjoy it, though there are some brief references. You can google them after you finish the game.

Avoid spoilers like plague!

No. 41489

Persona 5 is amazing. Im pretty new to JRPGs too but loved persona. Playing the previous games isn’t necessary, though I’m sure there’s references I missed. You can’t do everything your first play through either so it’s actually fun to play a second time.
I’ve also played Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and enjoyed it, despite not usually liking open world games and preferring turn based combat. Just be warned, it’s centered around that whole “big tiddy anime girl” shit lmao the story is decent otherwise.
Kingdom hearts is good too but the story is a mess. Like I played 1 and 2, but still don’t understand shit in 3 because apparently all the side games count as ~vital story~.

It depends on how much time your ready to play a game to complete it. Pokemon is good because it's easy and not too long but there are so many things you can do that you can potentially spend hundreds of hours. Final Fantasy is a famous series, the most popular ones are the PS1 games but FF6 is also very popular. They're not "too" long to complete from what I've been told, bu then again I only played FF1 to FF4 so far. Fans always fight each other on whether the recent games are good or trash. I played Fire Emblem Awakening and Fates and liked both, but they're more like tactical RPGs and Fates as several routes, including one that's way more difficult than the others (Conquest). Once I get around the GBA games I'll tell you if they're good or not for beginners.

I like the SMT franchise a lot, I would say Persona 3 to 5 are good for beginners and not too difficlt once you get used to the gameplay. For the main series I'd say SMT4 on the 3DS is one of my favorite games ever and it's also a good entry point to get into SMT but it's pretty hard, especially at the beginning, and it's long, it took me a bit more than 70h to complete my first playthrough. Overall SMT is like Pokemon because almost all the enemies you face can become a playable character so you can customize your party as you wish. Again about P5 since one anon recommended it, the game is long. I never played a Dragon Quest game, a friend said the series is great but not why they're great.

Ugh I want more news about Elden Ring to come out, the silence bores me. I really hope that’s just a working title too because it sounds too generic, like Lord of the Rings and The Elder Scrolls, two huge franchises in pop culture, had yet another grim and gritty fantasy baby. I like fantasy, I don’t want this to turn out bad but the trailer gave me weird vibes about the tone of the game.

FromSoft also declined a documentary with NoClip which is really disappointing because I want to know more about them and their practices but I guess they want to be secretive.

SMT4 only took me 45hrs, like 8 of which I spent fusing. I don't get how so many people had trouble with that game, I thought it was really easy. I never had to grind.

Maybe try the 3DS etrian odyssey games and persona Q? they're easy, the mapping is fun, the characters are cute, and there's a good bit of fujo pandering in pQ if you're into that. I'd recommend playing either etrian odyssey untold: the millennium girl or persona Q first.

I haven't played Strange Journey yet despite having the original game for months but I've been told by many people that it's a masterpiece but not beginner friendly. Not sure I'd recommend it to her if that true.

I couldn't play Nocturne all that much when I bought it a few years ago because my PS2 was broken and scratched all my games, but I'll play it very soon. If it gets too grindy for me I'll just skip the non-mandatory parts like the labyrinth (?) and the real/bonus final boss, I have so many games to beat. Anyway I loved it from what I played.

>SMT4 only took me 45hrs
I feel like I could have done that but I spent like one third of my time doing almost all the side-quests, including getting the black card, fusing demons and trying to unlock the neutral route. I redid the Kenji fight way too many times but I was locked in the law route no matter what so I'm sure I spent even more time than that on my first playthrough. I'm still salty I never managed to unlock the neutral route because I hated killing Isabeau but right now I'm about to beat the final boss of SMT4 Apocalypse so I don't really feel like going back to SMT4 now.

>I never had to grind.

I can't stand the Fire Emblem battle system. The only TRPG's I've ever beaten were the FF Tactics Advanced games.

JRPGs fall under an incredibly large umbrella. I would suggest Kingdom Hearts or Castlevania Symphony of the Night.
Dealing with tedious and complicated menus popping up every now and then are also something I don't like, but Vagrant Story was interesting enough for me, although you probably wouldn't want to play it until you're way more into JRPGS.
I'm also not a big fan of turn-based RPGs, but a few of them like Yokai Watch are entertaining enough for me to push that aside.
Some other JRPGs I also liked are Secret of Mana, Phantasy Star Online, and Chrono Trigger.

The 3DS version is easier, I think it’s called Redux.

I bought the original Strange Journey for the NDS before Redux was announced, I'd feel stupid if I bought almost the same game without playing the one I already have. I'll see how it goes once I actually play it, I'm about to finish SMT4 Apocalypse and after that I'll play SMT Nocturne. The final boss in SMT4A is seriously pissing me off because of its second phase and the RNG that's always working against me. Satan and the last dungeon were piss easy, I don't get it.

It's a story-rich puzzle game for the most part! It's a refreshing depart from usual rpg maker games because there is no combat! It has comedy, feels, and spooky. I especially love the way I can tell it was written by a woman and made with so much love. It's unfortunate that some people may think that makes it boring. About 12 hrs of game play.

I hate it when people shit on some games in a series because "it's bad because there's (actually optional) fanservice, you play as a self insert and you can date some of the characters!", then praise other games in the same franchise because "the art is pretty, the music is pretty and the story is good" when these games are actually not that much better in these aspects and the gameplay and level design are so much worse than the games that supposedly have too much fanservice. You'd think they were reviewing visual novels but no.

When you talk about things you dislike in games with the exact same people such as excessive DLCs, loot boxes and similar practices, different versions or routes of the same game in different cartridges or the fact that some games are released a year later outside of Japan because of botched localisations, or games you can only really play online for no valid reason they don't say anything because it turns out they don't even play video games, they just watch playthroughs on youtube. Yes it's about pic related but not only. I'm glad I bought a brand new copy for only 25€ because it's disappointing so far and people wouldn't stop praising this game and its shitty boring maps literally just because there's less fanservice than the previous games.

I've been playing FE Three Houses all the weekend and while I don't fully understand the teaching system, the whole castle thing turned out to be more fun than I expected. There's also more options for lesbian romance. The story is a bit darker specially after the timeskip and it's way more believable than Fates drama. At least the Blue Lions route has some fucked up shit.
So far the only thing I regret is not having enough time to keep playing.

Hard to answer but really for me is either Earthbound, Final Fantasy 9 (and X) or Chronno Triggered.

Dragon Quest is kinda the default jrpg franchise, it features all the stereotypes of the genre and always stays the same when it comes to themes and setting so is very newcomer friendly.

Jarpig is a genre i played a ton but i have actually beaten very few games. I was insane about them growing up in the psx era but looking back, most were not that great. I think if you want to know what the hype for the genre was about just play any classic Final Fantasy game. ( I kinda don't like them after X but loved them all from 6 to X)


I never understood Visual Novels, they feel so low effort and boring to me, i would just rather read a manga. And what is even up with that guy´s hands?

I really enjoy games where you can pick your gender and your name, even if they don't have a lot of customization. I find them kind of feminist, as they don't usually change your interactions with the story or characters based on your gender (aside from minor things). That's because it would be a pain in the ass for programmers to do so lol. Consequently, the games usually end up being neutral on your gender and NPCs don't say sexist shit or judge your actions.

Any recommendations? I'll give mine:

— Games with customization I've enjoyed:
+ Pokémon franchise [Nintendo].
+ Rune Factory 4 (you only choose your gender and name) [Nintendo 3DS/Switch].
+ Animal Crossing franchise [Nintendo].
+ Stardew Valley [PC].
+ The Sims 3 [PC].
+ Fantasy Life [Nintendo 3DS].
+ Final Fantasy Chronicles: Echoes of Time (sequel, you only choose your race, gender and name)[Nintendo DS]
+ The Urbz [Nintendo].
+ Age of Wonders III (don't know about the prequels, but you can customize your avatar, the game is nice and cheap on instant gaming but I haven't played a lot) [PC].

— Games with customization that I've played but bored me/weren't appealing:
- God Eater franchise (didn't appeal to me, too much weebness but eh, you can find good discounts on instant gaming right now)[PC/Playstation/other platforms].
- Dragon Quest IX [Nintendo DS].
- Harvest Moon franchise [Nintendo].
- MMORPGS (I liked Aura Kingdom and Maplestory 2, but I always end up quitting these types of games) [PC/Android].
- Staxel (bought it when it had a huge discount on instan gaming, haven't really played it lol) [PC].

— Games with customization that I haven't played yet:
. Fire Emblem franchise (I would like to play the newest games, but they cost tons of money and I'm not paying that for something I don't know if I would enjoy) [Nintendo].
. Monster Hunter Stories (cheaper on Android, I may buy it in the future) [Nintendo/Android].
. Assasin's Creed Odyssey (I already have the game) [Playstation].
. Secrets of Grindea (waiting for it to be finished) [PC].
. My Time at Portia (waiting for a good discount) [PC].

I don't remember more games. It would be nice to hear your recommendations, anons, any videogame genre is welcome as long as you can choose the gender and name of your character!

No. 45520

If you have a 3DS you can get a demo to try FE Awakening a little. Fates' gameplay is similar but a bit more balanced because in FE Awakening some classes are way to OP compared to others. Three Houses' gameplay is different and there's no demo as far as I know unfortunately and while you can't customize the main characters in FE Echoes because they're remakes of FE2 there's a male main character and a female main character. I don't think I can recommend FE Echoes to anyone though, I found it boring at best and annoying most of the time because of the witches and the cantor maps. I also never played any Monster Hunter except a demo on the 3DS, I have no idea how different each game is but you should try demos and see how you feel it. I like some of the games you already cited, I think maybe you should try Sword of Mana and Magical Starsign if you like JRPGs. There's also Persona 3 Portable, both main characters are different so you have different dialogues with the female MC but I liked her a lot. There are other games where the main character is a woman but you can't customize her so not sure if that counts.

Anyway this reminds me of an old article in a Minnie Mag (before it became Witch Mag) from the early 2000 I think, it was saying that video games weren't just for boys and they can be fun and it cited a bunch of recommendations with female protagonists, playable characters and cute characters in general like Resident Evil, Street Fighters, Pokemon Red/Blue because of the cute pokemon and the female NPCs/trainers, Final Fantasy, the legend of Zelda, etc. This is making me feel nostalgic.

So i am playing Chronno Trigger for the first time and after all the years of hearing the game being hyped as one of the best jarpigs ever i gotta say, it does hold up, its great. (I left it just entering the sky city)

I really like the female characters in it, yeah sure, i can nitpick that two of them have "kiss" "charm" allure" in their skill list but they are over all cute and strong and Lucca is smart and the best, they are not just cosmetic but really good party members in battle. and also i kinda want a Froggy plushie now.

i would def try out awakening as the other anon said. stay away from fates, the story is really, really bad, and i can only tell you that should you really like how awakening plays MAYBE consider conquest for the gameplay, but sure as hell don't buy it for the story. awakening has more customization as well. there's also new mystery of the emblem (FE12) with a character you can name and change, but maybe it's not the best starting point. same for echoes, but it doesn't have customization.

No. 45566

Second for the Elder Scrolls series. I’ve only played Skyrim but I know the rest treats your protagonist similarly. They are also very mod friendly so you can customise everything about your character (read: not be ugly, lol). You can be gay and marry another female character and no one ever comments on it but that’s mostly because there’s 0 dialogue about marriage outside of the quest for it rather than worldbuilding.

There is also the Dark Souls series, "gender has no bearing on ability", it says in the menus. No male gaze shit or that fantasy crap where women are mistreated because it’s "realistic and gritty" to make it "dark". They’re a solid trilogy of games with online aspects but nothing like an MMO.

If you didnt like Harvest Moon, what’s different about it vs Stardew Valley?

No. 45571

I'm going to tag in on the Elder Scrolls suggestions! Also, Fallout is a fantastic game to get lost into and the newest one has excellent character creation. Also, if you haven't started playing Sims 4 at all, check it out! I would suggest pirating though because some of the stuff packs suck.

Phantasy Star Online is good! It's an MMORPG, the first game isn't online anymore, but there's fan servers that are still pretty active to this day. The second game is still alive and well after 7-ish years of release, even officially coming out to release in English in 2020.

If you have a PSVita, I highly recommend playing Phantasy Star Nova, it uses the same engine as PSO2, but completely available to play without internet connection. It also has it's own fan translation, which is fairly easy to patch if you already have your Vita homebrewed.
I honestly like Nova a bit more than the Online 2 counterpart, which is what it's heavily based off of. The first reason is, because it's offline. The second reason is because this series features a lot of women as leaders. The main ship that's being piloted has a female captain. Also, you can customize how your camp area looks. If you want all women running the shops, go for it, a lot of the women have great buffs compared to the men if you want them to tag along with you during your quest.

If anything if anon will like Awakening she should play FE Fates Birthright because of how similar it is since you can do some level grinding if needed and the story is just as straight forward. Conquest is great but it's more challenging.

Basically if you care about story a lot Fates isn't all that great, especially with the shitty Americanized localisation. But if she cares more about gameplay she may like Fates just as much as, or more than Awakening. Both are good and similar enough tbh. We'll just pretend Revelation and its shitty maps and underleveled characters doesn't exist.

I could recommend SMT games if you like RPGs, which are mostly remakes and two very good original games, Fire Emblem and Ace Attorney.

You said you like Pokemon, and SMT is sort of similar, it's a JRPG series you can "recruit" enemies in your party whenever you want and just customize your party in general. SMT games that are remakes are:
>devil survivor overclocked
>devil survivor 2 record breaker (both are tactical RPGs)
>SMT strange journey redux
>soul hackers (this one was a game from the 90s and it's a bit dated but still enjoyable, but I haven't finished it yet)
>persona q and persona q 2, they're based on the Etrian Odyssey games
And then you have SMT4 and its sequel SMT4 Apocalypse, they're some of my favorite video games. If you're American SMT games tend to be on sales on the e-shop pretty often from what I've been told. If you're European like me don't even bother trying to buy physical copies.

About Fire Emblem, you have Awakening which is easy and a nice 1st game to get into the series. Then you have Fates which is divided in 3 routes you have to buy separately unless you somehow find the special edition of the game. Birthright plays like Awakening, Conquest is harder because the maps are different or are the same but with more difficult objectives and different playable characters and there are restrictions so you can't level grind, like the first games of the series. Then you have Revelation, which is DLC only, have gimmicky maps and have no balance whatsover, think of it as a "fanservice" golden route where nobody dies and everyone is happy. FE Echoes is a remake of FE2 and you'll either love it or dislike it. I didn't like it at all personally. If you want to play FE Fates I recommend you just play Birthright and Conquest, forget about Revelation unless you really want to play online (not worth it.) Don't listen to anyone bitching about FE Fates having a bad story because they'll pretend that Awakening, Echoes or even other games have a better story which is wrong (except maybe for the new Switch game.) Don't play FE for the story, play it for the gameplay.

As for Ace Attorney you should be able to get the whole series on the 3DS now iirc. It's very tory focused so play in that order
>AA Phoenix Wright
>AA Justice for All
>AA Trials and Tribulation (they're in the same trilogy, and basically it's the main story written by Shu Takumi)
>Apollo Justice
>AA Dual Destinies
>AA Spirit of Justice
Try to avoid spoilers as much as you can if possible. I have the first four games on the DS and only AA5 and AA6 on the 3DS. I think you can also get the trilogy on steam but I think it's more convenient to have everything on the same platform.

I haven't played Bravely Default or Bravely Second yet, but friends have and they enjoyed both a lot. Same thing for Radiant Historia. Other games I liked were shorter Nintendo games like Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Super Mario Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, etc. I'm looking forward to playing Zelda games, Metroid 2, Luigi's Mansion 2 and Kid Icarus and then I'll be able to talk about these games too.

I just cheked the new FF7 trailer.

What do you think? To me it looks similar to FFXV which is not a bad thing, it looks pretty but i kinda liked the turn based combat better than the broken action based system of XV that they seem to be going with. I would most certainly be playing it when it comes out, but kinda want to replay the original before it comes out.

I'm not worried about the battle system in the least because everyone who's played the demo was blown away by how great it is. They also mentioned how surprisingly good the dialogue sounds. The English voice work in this trailer sounded rough as hell, but I have faith that it'll sound better in-game. Overall, everything looks amazing. I don't even mind this new SOLDIER dude and those dumb ghosts lmao. I understand they need to pad it out so we can stay in Midgar longer. The original is one of my favorite games of all time, so I bought the 350-dollar 1st Class CE even though I've never been a preorderfag. I've waited so long for this.

The dialogs and character banter were amazing on XV. If it anywhere near as good that alone would be a selling point for this one. The big problem in Xv to me was the plot and the bland dungeons. This time we know thats covered because its FF7 we are talking about here.

Resident Evil 2 hyped me for remakes. It can really be amazing and i want this to meet everyone's expectations so maybe they do one of FFVI, that classic aesthetic with current gen polish would be so good.

Good, because the trailer didn't show it. Part of me thinks it's unnecessary to do a remake of this old game, part of me look forward to explore that world again in a new way that couldn't be done in 1997. God Don Corneo is going to be mega cringe though.

It is crazy to remember that the original game came out so long ago, maybe because the characters are so present and remembered still to this day, FF7 became franchise of its own within the FF franchise.

It makes sense that the Square Enix is giving them new life so they can milk the crap out of the IP for more years to come like they have done all the 00s, but that also means they need to step up and make a really good game that meets the expectations. I think a remake was inevitable, i don't get very salty about them because worst case scenario the remake is not as good but we still have the original game with some added mainstream relevance, best case scenario the remake is great and worth it so any way is all good.

Yakuza 7 looks great. I can't wait to play all these minigames. It looks like they're packing a LOT into it compared to Yakuza 6, which was lacking hardcore. The turn-based gameplay looks pretty fun and it definitely shows the developers are having fun with it as well. Yakuza is finally fun again.

Has anyone else played Little Misfortune yet? It's great.
I liked Fran Bow, so I had high hopes for this, and it did not disappoint. I wasn't too into some of the gross-out humor, though and I wish there was more than one ending, and more stuff to play around with in general, considering all the choices. Plus, the fact that there seems to be no real way to "die", "get caught" or otherwise lose in this game, no matter what, kind of sucks the urgency out of the scary bits. Plus, I noticed at least one continuity error and a visual glitch in one part. It almost feels sort of unfinished, but otherwise? Lovely. I loved the overall message of hope, it was refreshing and very heartwarming.

I'm playing it! More than halfway through and enjoying it a lot. Been doing most of it co-op with my fiance (some bosses I've done solo) and he loves it too. We're both big Soulsborne fans so it was a safe bet in getting it. I'm not into anime all that much personally but the story and characters are still able to hold my interest. The combat is not slow like Dark Souls, I would say it is more like Bloodborne in that regard. It took inspiration from Dark Souls for some things but is very much its own game with its own strengths and weaknesses.

I'm playing FE3H and after a few weeks not playing it whatsoever because I was too busy I reached the timeskip, and thank god the monastery section is less time-consuming now. It's still annoying though and while I'm doing the blue lions route, I want to go with the black eagles route next. Problem is, there are so many cutscenes, the support scenes are so long, the monastery part is long and repetitive and the first 11 chapters are the same no matter the route so I'm wondering if I'll get burned out. Has anyone here completed several routes in a row?

At least with Fates you could do whatever you wanted between two maps quickly and without restrictions like the action points, I wish it was a bit more like that in 3H.

I’m on my third play though now, and I hate how much of a time sink the stupid monastery is. I love FE and I’m having a lot of fun with the different classes and supports, but the pre-time skip section is just draining because there’s very little variation.

If you’re going to go Black Eagles next, make a separate save in the February month of the game because BE splits off to two separate post time skip stories so you don’t have to redo the first 11 months over.

I really feel like they could have just compressed the Monstary into the barracks like in PoR but made the whole explorable map because of Koei being involved

No. 53530

Are you talking about the part where you choose between the black eagles route and the church route? If that's the case I'll do that, redoing the same 11 chapters with the exact same characters and cutscenes sounds like a pain in the ass.

>I really feel like they could have just compressed the Monstary into the barracks like in PoR

I'm a filthy casual who only played Awakening, Fates and (unfortunately) Echoes so far, not sure how it's like but I'm guessing it's probably more like the "my castle" feature in Fates? I don't think having such a huge explorable zone for the monastery was a good idea, doing everything I need to do each time takes at the very least an hour and more than half of that time is spent running back and forth to give items to the characters, it's boring. That's only impressive and fun the first few times you explore it. At least the maps are good and unlocking the paralogues isn't as annoying as in Awakening and Fates, especially in Conquest.

So what does everyone think of the Friends of Mineral Town remake, and how do you feel about the redesigns?

They added two new marriage candidates(bottom center of the pic) Brandon and Jennifer.

Personally I'm not too much a fan of some of the redesign choices, particularly Doc and Karen. Karen now looks like Freya from Grand Bazzar and with Doc, they somehow managed to make him look even MORE generic. Really unsure how to feel about Ricks's new hot redesign as well. Probably gonna go after Brandon, and maybe Cliff again for nostalgia.

By the way apparently they brought back the "best friend" system(from DS Cute), so you'll be able to marry any candidate regardless of your gender selection.

I'm really not that hyped for the remake… it just feels so lazy. But, I mean, it's nothing new for them, they did plenty of remakes in the past. Still, I'd rather have a whole new game. MFoMT is just so nostalgic and cute to me, the design just screams early 2000's so I'm a little sceptical. Might just be me being some kind of lore-beard purity fag.

Also the redesigns are kinda boring. What happened to Cliff? And Won is way too kawiwi animu, wtf

No. 53688

I am very excited for the remake, although I was really hoping for a new Story of Seasons game for console. I loved the DS titles, but I am really longing for different graphics (like, actually seeing something, everything on the DS is so small lol) and the return of older gameplay mechanics like proper mines. However, I am also very ready for this nostalgia trip to Mineral Town and I like what I have seen so far, especially the video trailers. Without movement, the game looks a tad bit too much like a mobile title imho, but I think it’s bearable when playing. And nothing can be as ugly as the Harvest Moon games Natsume recently released.

The redesigns are okay. It would be nice if it would be a bit closer to the old designs, but I guess they changed their artists and this is more up to date. However, on that collage they all look kind of the same – bland and happy, which is the thing I disliked about the newer SoS installments. The characters just lack personality and are really generic. This shows in the redesigns. Popuri always was my wife in the games, but she can be really annoying; on her picture she just looks innocent and sweet. Same with Ann who looks less tomboyish and kind of boring. I understand your comment on Karen, but at least she has some kind of facial expression that goes beyond ":D".

is it because leonie is a girl? she's so great and i don't mean to be a sperg about people disliking her but their reasons are legit just stupid.

Am I the only person who's not really that sympathetic to Edelgard? I'm playing her route rn, and the writers worked overtime to make Rhea look bad and to make Edelgard look good. Except I don't really see how Rhea is the bad guy for creating a world where dragons and humans could live peacefully. Rhea only fights in self-defense when others attack her. Rhea isn't responsible for humans creating a twisted aristocracy centered around crests. I don't want to fight Rhea.

Also, I think it's funny how Edelgard says she wants to create a world where crests don't matter, but doesn't hesitate to turn random citizens into demonic beasts in other routes. Not having Byleth around isn't a good enough reason for her actions, sorry. The only peasant she talks to is Dorothea, who praises her endlessly. Edelgard doesn't even think about offering public education to commoners UNLESS she marries Ferdinand. And her idea of a meritocracy is giving her friends from high school the best governmental positions. Ferdinand and Bernadetta still get to keep their land and titles.

And I've heard Edelgard doesn't even fight TWSID, so what's the point?

I'm overthinking this. But I just don't understand why Edelgard is so popular. People act like she's so revolutionary, like she totally destroys the status quo… but she doesn't. Nothing changes.

No. 58363

I'm playing with the Blue Lions so from what I can tell she's popular because of how the game was marketed (like she was the super important heroine, like Lucina and Azura) and because people don't think too hard about the actual story and its implications (kind of how people complained about Xander being a dumbass in Conquest when though his reasons for acting lile he does is perfectly justified.) I'm going to do the Black Eagles route next, I'll see if she's a developed villain or an actually morally ambiguous character lile some people say but it looks like she fits the 1st description more since she's a copypasta of Rudolph/Walhart/Arvis.

No, I feel the exact same way.
I feel like a huge majority of the fandom complains about how Edelgard doesn't deserve all the "hate" she gets but I've literally never seen any of this so-called hate, just people defending her.
Also see a lot of people saying that if Edelgard was male people would be more sympathetic to her (his?) character, but honestly I disagree. I've seen way more people criticizing Dimitri over Edelgard. I'm all for calling gamer scrotes out but nobody's attacking her for being female, they're all defending her cause she's a cute waifu, like come on.

I think she's an interesting character but you're right, she's not revolutionary at all and basically nothing changes in her route in the end, all she did was fuck shit up and cause needless death. IMO she's hugely overrated by the fandom. The other two house leaders have more compelling stories.

No. 58378

Totally agree with you anon. One of the criticisms people like to put against Rhea is that "she executed people!!" Yeah those who tried to kill her like… she's pretty insane, but the only war she ever waged was against the ONE (not even an entire country, just one guy) who had killed her mother, sounds pretty fair to me tbh.
BE just feels incomplete to me? Edelgard was allied with twsitd and Hubert aids them in that one paralogue yet they just kinda forgot about them? BE even has less chapters than the other routes so I don't understand why they couldn't do like they did for GD. It says they beat twsits (seriously fuck whoever decided to give them such a long name) in one of the endings though, maybe the hubert/edelgard one.

Has anybody picked up Switcher yet?
I'm surprised they ported it to a console mainly directed at children and younger teens. I was curious if they censored the game at all, I remember there being a few sex scenes where you'd see a nipple or two. Not a big deal, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't taken out. I don't know how Nintendo still is with adult stuff like that, even for third party games. Also the physical release case looks neat, it comes with stickers and a map.

Hopefully by the end of next year they'll be as cheap as Switch Lites are now and maybe then Switch Lites are going to be in the $150-175 range. I heard they're thinking about coming out with a "Pro" version of the Switch so hopefully that'll help with cheapening of the prices!
Refurbished/used consoles aren't a bad option either. I bought my 3DS and Vita used and the only issues I had to deal with were a dirty battery for the 3DS (which was easy to clean up, I just needed to dab a little alcohol on a cotton swab and rub the connector for a few seconds) and the Vita being a little scratched up on the back.
Good luck on the search anon!

No. 58649

I feel the same way. Plus Edelgard was shilled so hard on the other routes. I don't remember if it was Church route or Golden Deer, but at some point I was given 2 dialogue choices and one of them was "I'm worried about Edelgard". Like bitch no, she was trying to kill me, why would I be worried? They made her a heartless bitch but they tried to make us feel so sorry about her ass.

Dunno if you could handle weeb stuff, but 100% Orange Juice is a pretty comfy laid-back game. It's a board + card collecting game where the objective is to collect as many stars or kill as many enemies as possible. There are a bunch of characters that have their own special abilities and unique ways to play which really changes up the game every time. Online is pretty active so you can always find 2 other people to join, and the devs are constantly updating and adding new things.

Unfortunately you just missed it going on sale but it's still pretty cheap anyway. There's DLC to add more characters, but there are 15 in the base game (most of them have to be unlocked though). It's a quite fun casual game to play and sometimes can be pretty funny watching people get screwed over due to bad dice rolls, but there's still strategy involved based on how you decide to play and use your cards.

I feel like if I really want to have fun I should just play the DS games I already have. And I'm saying this as someone who doesn't see the national dex removal as a bad thing at all since I don't care about transfering my pokemon to more recent versions and it kinda made battling online annoying.

I've seen/heard bits and pieces, spoiler ahead.

So BBs are fetuses removed from brain dead women who apparently are also used to "telepathically breastfeed" them, from what I gather? Maybe it's just because I live in a country where brain dead women have been kept on life support because they were pregnant when they died (women in general are used as vessels) and I'm really sensitive to this topic…but the fact that this is being used as some edgy subplot in a fucking video game is really depressing me. Like this is something that actually happens irl.

I'm probably speaking too soon and maybe all of this will be explained but Kojima doesn't really have a great track record for how he treats women in his games so I'm not very hopeful. Please someone tell me that this is addressed and it's not made to be some kind of sexy fantasy for basement dwellers.

Majimas introduction was lovely, probably one of my favourites in any video game. And god, his karaoke.. Hng. Hes so good..
I don’t really have a favourite between the two since I love them both equally, and I think the game did a good job at separating their arcs in parts that wont make you miss the other character while playing (for the most part).

ok, i´m gonna say it, Kojima is a terrible writer, he had some clever ideas that can only really work in the realm of vidya but as far as any other standards go he would be considered to be pretty dogshit, like third rate low budget horror movie level, he would not be allowed to exist as a creator of renown anywhere else except on videogames, specially with how much he rips off other authors, ripping off something from a movie and including it in a videogame is easier to pass than a movie ripping off another movie .

Even now that videogames are billion dollar enterprises the writing is still at a low bar, lower even than mainstream american movies. I feel not just Kojima but a lot of videogame personalities are really bloated and way above their heads.

kojima didn't even get renowned because of his writing. he got renowned for revamping and popularizing stealth games

>didn't even get renowned because of his writing

I´ve know plenty of MGS fans who would disagree. The whole selling point of that franchise was how it was so cinematic and had a "serious" script, even when its really a cheesy b movie. He was already known for his writing before that anyways, like in Snatchers in the 80s, another potpourri of ripped off ideas.

No. 62772

it's not really what got him famous and renowned though. any article and video done on him mentions the revamping of the stealth genre instead of his writing lol
i don't really know anyone who expects good writing from him anyways but maybe i'm not in the right(or wrong) circles for this. i expected corny writing and cheesy dialogue but with wacky concepts from his games and that's usually what i get so i'm never disappointed

Kiryu is pretty adorable too, I've just been totally neglecting his side of the game to play the cabaret minigame lmao

Ahhhh I should've mentioned it in my first post, it's one of my favourite games. Played the first Nier straight after finishing it

I'm waiting until the new animal crossing comes out before getting a switch since they'll probably release a cute AC themed version for it, but planning to get BOTW once I do.

I recommend all the games, depending on your ability to play older games that is.. IIRC, the first game revolves around the short stories, the second around politics, and the third around Geralts life.

Yeah, the outfit looks kinda uninspired. They put the original one in the preorder version on purpose so that more people would buy it, kek.
Face in the bottom middle looked pretty bad, but it's probably because they were trying to imitate her surprised look from a scene in the original game and it didn't go too well. Apparently the models are only there for face scanning, they don't really act the scenes. So they shoot maybe some basic expressions and the rest are worked on later artificially, that's why some expressions might look weird.

Are there any anons here that enjoy elder scrolls online here? Ever since I got into it in august I have been completely hooked and have been playing it every single day. It's hands down the best elder scrolls game ever made, even if it had a rocky start on release according to those who experienced that and flaws it has, mainly pertaining to it being a mmo. Some examples of the flaws include there being no real player impact is left on the world because they need to reset the dungeon for the next players, or trying to be stealthy, but another players just runs in and rip and tears through everything, or having to wait for a boss to reset because you couldn't get a hit in because other players got to them before you. It's also the ultimate mmo for people who hate people and mmos. Zenimax do a good job of acting on criticism. I would hope that for ES6 that they outsource the game to someone else because I can tell from a mile away it's going to suck, I have no faith in them. Sorry for my retarded sperging, eso is good.

Once I hit vet levels I quit. From a single player game standpoint the story is hit or miss. (Wrothgar was amazing, Morrowind was okay). From an MMO standpoint it's spammy animation cancelling garbage and clunky as hell. And it's got a real predatory model when it comes to crown crates and other fun cosmetic stuff. Artificial time gated scarcity sucks.

I beat the Azure Moon route a few months ago in FE3H and now I'm right in the middle of the Crimson Flower route and oh god, this game is such a drag. Why the fuck did the developers think making you redo the beginning of the game 3/4 times to unlock all the endings was a good idea? Only a few cutscenes and dialogues are different and this shit lasts like 11 chapters.

No. 71057

cant you abuse the save function

No. 71073

Not really, the game is weird in that the route split happens at the very beginning (as soon as the first chapter iirc?) where you have to choose your house/students, but you only really start having different chapters and stories after the 12th or 13th chapter when you compare all the routes.

The exception is between the Crimson Flower and Silver Snow routes where the route split happens right before the 12th chapter so I WILL use the save function here. Fates was better designed, you only had 5 short chapters to complete before the route split, you can skip them once you complete your first run anyway and the chapters between all the versions were way more different.

Don't worry about it, I managed to stay her ally after the timeskip. I kept the save file from right before I have to choose between Edelgard and Rhea so I won't have to redo the pre timeskip part of the game. Not sure I'll be able to do the VW route since I'm only borrowing my sister's Switch and I'll probably move out soon.

I liked Edelgard a lot in AM as a villain and even in general, she was pretty much a better Walhart since she's important from the beginning of the story. But I already have a feeling her own route is trying to push her as a kawaii waifu who did nothing wrong because she loves her sensei uwu after the timeskip.

That's how I felt like, too. Her motives for everything in CF seemed kind of inconsistent to me, and she and Hubert say a lot of things, but then do the exact opposite. I'm also getting tired of everyone on twitter being like "she'd be the perfect communist queen, if you just ignore her personality, her actions, and her reasons for ruling." Edelgard fans seem to be incapable of looking at her flaws, they really love to whitewash her. She's way more interesting as a villain, rather than how she acts in CF… I don't think she's cute just because she's scared of rats, sorry.

At least Rhea and Dimitri fans will admit that their faves did a lot of things wrong.

To me it seems like her route was developed at the last minute because IS was too ambitious (again, see what happened to Fates) and wanted a villain route because characters like Rudolph, Arvis or Walhart were popular, BUT they wanted a plot twist à la MGS2 were the heavily marketed character and poster boy/girl of the game is actually not the protagonist (and the suspicious JRPG church and pope aren't the actual villains) BUT the investors told them to hurry up and release the game asap while forcing them to make Edelgard more marketable for Japanese normies and waifufags so she can't be too much of a ruthless misguided villain.

Actually I say that but I've been told that VW and SS are pretty much copy-pasted and that it's more likely that VW was based off SS with only one more chapter and a different last chapter. I really wonder how the game was developed now. We will probably never know, since to this day we don't know exactly how FE Fates was developed and why the story had so much potential and was so shit (an that's not even taking the terrible localization into account)

I feel like the only people into the FF7 remake are super nostalgia fags and newcomers. I played the game back in 1998, a few months after its release and it was decent then, but it barely hopes up now. Also, the story is not solid enough to warrant real replay.

I need to sperg about my man Goro Majima for a second. I fucking hate a majority of the fans and even the localization team for not taking him seriously. They all just portray him as some ex dee totally random "trash goblin". Like… Have you actually played the game? Everything he does, is for a reason, no matter how random it may seem. His whole fucking personality is an act for his protection, down to his Osaka accent and hair, so people from his past wouldn't recognize him. He's a man of many masks, which is why I think his Hanya tattoo is perfect. The character designers knew exactly what they were doing.
Also, I absolutely HATE Goromi fans. I can't believe how obsessed they are with this single sub story scenario to the point where they're making zines and seething at Sega for referring to Goromi still as a man.

It's true. I'll admit a part of me was disappointed when they said they'll be treating FFVIIR's parts/episodes as separate FF titles. I love FFVII and it was a dream of mine to see this remake come out, but I'd kill to see their Agni's Philosophy tech demo as FFXVI.

They can make literally anything else tbh. The reason i personally cant stand FF7 is because it has SO many side stories. It's probably the one FF game that has at least 4 side stories for no reason. Dirge of cerberus, Crisis Core (even though that one was okay) Advent children, etc etc… it's such a mess.

Anyone wants to talk about the plot of Death Stranding? I have almost finished it (I am at the part where you are supposed to incinerate BB's corpse - btw I am not buying that it's really dead and I expect a plot twist tbh. Either this or it goes to beach or wherever to chill with Cliff eternally) and I would love to exchange opinions with someone.
Overall I liks the game but feel like Hideo has missed out on making the characters feel like real people and not plot devices. I miss the codec calls about everything and nothing from MGS 1-4. This and all the little scenes made the characters of MGS feel like my friends or acquaintances. They were very exaggerated as well but the fact that most of them felt like they had interests and life outside of their importance to the main plot (or situation at hand) made them unforgettable.
(diehardman really pissed me off when he started venting his guilt at me. idgaf, our relationship was purely professional, go see a priest if you feel that bad)
I'm pleasantly surprised at no bullshit sexualization of female characters (I wonder if someone at Sony forced him to stop being a retard due to the fallout of the #metoo era or if it was his decision). I really like most of them though I wish that we could get to know them better.

ATM I beloeve that Cliff is best guy as he loved his wife and went crazy without her and never wanted to leave her or their son. I'm awaiting to find out it's his fault that she winded up in coma/braindead(?)

Has anyone played the Life is Strange franchise?
I feel like a lot of people shit on the games for being "sjw-pandering" but I genuinely enjoyed the first game, it had a goid story line and soundtrack.
The prequel was kinda shitty, I hated hoe Chloe was manipulated by Rachel Amber, and I feel like it left out many plotpoints from the previous game (like how Rachel and Frank had a thing going on) and it dragged on a bit.
Life is Strange 2 was honestly disappointing, the main character gave me the I'm-to-kewl-2-care vibe and the episodes didn't feel like they made a continuous story line, just random shit that happened to them. The only character development that was happening was Sean getting edgy and careless, and Daniel getting more annoying (albeit still a young child, but still).

I like chaotic complex female characters though, Rachel wasn't annoying me. Chloe was very manipulative towards Max, too. Adds to the realism and complexity of relationships, maybe.
The second season though… I just don't care about the characters. Not enough to even play beyond ep2, I've been putting off finishing the game for quite a time now. It's not the matter of not relating because they're not white chicks… I don't know. It just doesn't have the same magic? Hard to describe.

No. 73423

I don't like LiS much anymore but I do look back very fondly on it. I was born and raised in Oregon and Arcadia Bay reminded me so much of my trips out to the coast as a child. Arcadia Bay is literally just Tillamook Bay. Plus I was seventeen, and an dorky hipster, and obsessed with Twin Peaks…it was literally made for me kek. Even then I thought it was cringey and at times poorly written but it was an experience nonetheless.

>I've been playing as the episodes would come out and I remember the agony over completing the ep and having to wait months for the next one, oof.

It's very cute! You enroll in a little wizard school, and like Animal Crossing you're the only human there. There's shops and restaurants etc you can go to and you can decorate your dorm room. You learn lil spells and take on quests at the school. I know you can romance the animals or 'best friend' same sex animals, but I'm not that far into the game.

in the same vein,I really wish Rule of Rose(which is similar in a way as there's a female protag with a dog) got a remake with fixed game mechanics,since it was the biggest problem of the game which really ruined the experience.I haven't played it as it's one of the rarest games of PS2 because it was banned in a some countries,but I loved everything about it from the music and the atmosphere to the story and the characters and how they were all handled.Lots of thought was put in in and it's a shame it was rushed to the point the gameplay was so bad people were quitting it.It also got unfair flack for "lesbian" themes and abuse which were only subtle and handled pretty well imo.Stupid moral panic and shitty gameplay made this game obscure while it could be a horror classic like silent hill and I'm kinda salty more people dont know about it.

The chances of it being remade are slim as most people don't know it exists and atlus doesn't seem to care about remaking a game like this.It has a great story with sad themes and good twists.And for a 2006 game,the motion capture graphics looks pretty good even today compared to AAA full realistic games which look ugly and outdated

No. 75020

This game is fucking fantastic. One of my biggest regrets was finding s used copy at Gamestop for like 30 bucks but then selling it later on. Now it's way too expensive to buy. I loved everything about this game except the fighting but it could've been clever. I loved the weapons, the health items and costumes. I also loved the Brown mechanic. There was so much lore and so much to explore here. The characters are great and you feel like you're stepping into their world.

Maybe slight spoiler but I firmly believe some dev at red dead redemption was inspired by this game for one of the sidequests. The whole boy in the basement one.

You can tell people only watched the trailer and got outraged at the blood sucking scene (and thats the only explicit thing I can remember tbh) without actually playing the game.

It has a lot of fucked up themes and the setting makes them even worse but the it manages to present them in a really tasteful way(Clara, cloth on the ground representing the dead etc), also, the visual storytelling they have going on is godlike.

No, that would be horrible. The game had so many fun notes and side quests to do where you can piece together the mystery. Movies cant do it and a series would be awful because it's a game based on some scenes that do sexualize minors and that would be disgusting irl.

I would love for Outbreak to get a remake however!! It's a game that had such an interesting concept, but executed poorly. It would be interesting to do it with actual online multiplayer.

I posted a graphic back when it was announced >>39790 and my personal intake on this. It really depends on what you are looking to, if you want to play your switch games on the go then I would go for the lite because it has a longer battery life and is more handy. The casual switch on the hand which I personally own, has more options but as I said, it depends on what you want. Read what suits your needs and then go for it.

anons I played FE Awakening back when it came out and am currently halfway through Three Houses and really like them both. Which other Fire Emblem games should I play? The only other tactical rpgs I've played are Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (which I adore) and Phantom Brave, if that matters.

No. 77378

Try to play FE Fates if you liked Awakening in terms of gameplay. It's the same thing but better/more balanced. There are three versions, Conquest, Birthright and Revelation. Conquest and Birthright are the base game but they're sold separately and they have different playable characters and classes, as well as different chapters (unlike 3H where all the routes have almost all the same maps for a long time except maybe CF but it's the shortest route by far). Birthright plays exactly like Awakening but more balanced. Conquest is way harder because of restricted money and lack of level grinding maps but has really good maps. The story isn't all that great and some of the really interesting things were removed for the localized versions because the story wasn't family-friendly enough and some people will tell you it's shit but the characters are ok for the most part. Just make sure to unlock supports between all the siblings to learn more about them.

It's recommended you play Revelation last because it reveals a bunch of plot points that stay mysteries in both base game routes. Not only this is wrong and other less expensive and more fun DLCs reveal actual things, the maps are super gimmicky and boring. And there's the fact that you can use almost all the characters from both versions but they have shit stats and levels in the chapters where they show up so there's no point to it. The only good thing from this version is if you want to play online but it's too late for that now. So imo you shouldn't bother with Revelation at all.

FE Echoes plays very differently from the other 3DS games but I wouldn't recommend it. I personally hated it, the original game aged like milk and almost nothing was modernized in this remake. Don't listen to people telling you the game is good because the art and voice acting is great because they mean that only these things are good.

I'm playing FE Blazing Blade right now and I'm enjoying it but I'm only at the beginning of the game (just unlocked Eliwood), so I can't give you an opinion yet on the GBA games.

The soulsborne games aren't nearly as difficult as people like to make them out to be. Just like any game, they require familiarity with the controls, and while there is a bit of a learning curve for some encounters, don't let the prospect of difficulty or the words of a buncha pansy-ass dudes dissuade you.

I'm not fond of lorebeards and their fans who constantly parrot their glorified fanfiction, there's too many players who get sucked into watching YouTube videos to cram all that lore in and I think they're losing out on the mental exercise that comes with piecing together your own interpretation of the game on your own.

So I recently got hooked into the Persona games. I played 3 and 4 and loved them and was looking forward to playing 5 but I was abroad and only had my handhelds so I had to wait. Now I'm home and am reunited with my PS4, but P5R is so close to being released in the west and now I'm not sure if I should buy a cheap used copy of P5 and play it first, then buy Royal when it's gone down in price a bit, or just skip the middleman and only play Royal.
Idk, am I overthinking this? I feel kinda dumb buying P5 when the more enhanced version is right around the corner, but I'm pretty cheap and more of a "patient gamer" too. Any thoughts from people who've already played 5?

No. 79550

I've seen that the added content in P5R isn't amazing or change the experience of the actual game overall like P3FES, P3P or even P4G did so you're better off saving money and getting the original game. People even kept saying buying P5R is like buying a 70$ DLC because of how tacked on the new content is.

No. 79552

Oh damn, didn't realize it was that disappointing. I was trying not to look up too many reviews or summaries to avoid spoilers but it looks like a lot of people are saying pretty much what you said. I'll just buy the original game, then, and maybe I can check out P5R in like a year or two when it's gone way way down in price. Thanks for saving me like $40 lmao

Maybe it's too early to ask, but would the FF7 remake be a bad purchase if I haven't played the original? Or any other FF game, for that matter. I've heard that 7 is one of the better games and a good first game for newcomers to the series, but as a younger gamer I'm kind of more drawn to the new game with shiny modern graphics. But it worries me that the remake is only the beginning of the game and that the rest of the story is gonna be in separate games.

No. 83287

ya'll can thank Nomura for that, yes he is the same guy that created the kingdom hearts franchise so of course he was gonna pour some kh autism to this as well. lul this is the same guy that almost ruined ffxv (formerly called 13vs) I bet they will also kick him out of this project if he goes full autismo with this game.

How the fuck was it KH autism, they represent Reunion. It's probably going to expand into the clones and what not. Not everything is fucking KH. Black cloaked figures was already in FF7 prior to KH being a thought.

the same day he lets go of Noctis and 13vs this man knows no limits

meh its just my opinion, everything Nomura touches he ruins, I was just saying that maybe he will try and make the story as convoluted as kh, dont get me wrong I do like kh but its a bit too much and the fact that he added his "not noctis" character to the whole plot kinda ruins it but like I said its just my opinion.

No. 83301

Maybe know the game first then? It's representative of the Reunion. It's not like he's going to stray far from the actual plot he's just adding elements not well explained in the ps1 release. They even said they wanted to expand on things they had to cut or didn't have time to put in.

No. 83306

Oh my god anon, changes are not automatically good or bad. At the moment I would honestly said that the dementors are terrible. You do know that they are supposed tp be 'keepers of destiny', right? They are intervening so the timeline of FFVII is intact and the story roughly goes on as it already has.
How is that not stupid and overly convoluted. Literally nobody asked for this shit. Maybe the dementor addition will end up being good, but I doubt that. Yoshinori Kitase is the only person who can write at SquareEnix, everyone else just adds autism to the plot.

Yes, he really needs to retire.

Yeah the game is good it does have the unfinished feel to it but the whole thing itself is pretty good,the story is a bit shit but the gameplay is fun and the banter between the characters is fun too, you will fall in love with them than with the actual person you are suposed to marry (in game) I have put like 200 hrs on the game but you can finish it in around 60 to 80 hours depending if you want to jump all the side quests, also the dlcs are pretty good except gladios that dlc is shit but the rest are decent. I would say go for it but wait till there is an offer or discount on the ps store or steam.

I was playing FE Sacred Stones and I'm currently in the second half of Eirika's route and I got so pissed at one of my unit getting killed from something completely unpredictable an hour into the chapter and from the RNG screwing me over and over again I gave up and decided to just play otome games I had on my backlog. Fuck it. The fucking fog mechanic and "you can see enemies in a room until you unlock it because fuck you" thing are total bullshit and any older fans who tell you they're great ideas are retarded or in total denial. Maybe once I'll be done with more games in my backlog I'll go back to it since I have so much free time.

I also really want to play the original FF7 now because the remake or rather, knowing that the remake is more of a sequel made me kinda hyped. I already have most FFs on my PSVita so maybe I should play all the ones I never even started yet. So if I go back to FF it's either gonna be FF7 or the FF10 and 10-2 remaster.

I know but since it starts as an otoge parody I guess it's close enough.

I'll check these games later, I'm sure they'll be on sales later but I'll try to finish more games in my backlog before. I don't think they were on sales on Steam when I bought the games I mentioned in my previous post though.

I don't mind if there's no voice acting in the men of yoshiwara actually, it allows me to just smash enter and be done with routes pretty fast since I read very fast. I did one route in ohgiya and marked that one as "completed" in my backlog anyway, I started another route to shitpost about it with friends but after that I'll leave it at that.

Here's the thing I don't understand, TLoU is a very meh, big-budget video game written by people who obviously wished they were making movies instead, it's hardly ever stood out as the kind of game that would take risky steps like this, whatever your opinion of it. There seems to be more game devs who are trans than people working in cinema or TV, or atleast more vocal ones. Large portions of the gaming community are very trans-oriented, speedrunning for example has a huge amount of trans runners. My only explanation for it is that shit like Gamergate encouraged a split where you're either for wokeness, trans representation, etc. or you're super against it, feminismand SJWs, etc. The funny thing about TLoU2 is that no one is happy, transfolks hate that their representative is a villain, women hate that their representation is being diluted and the usual Twitter edgelords are mad the women aren't sexier and that there's anything "SJW-y" in their precious video games.

If the game is going to be this focused on social political tumblr politics, why even make it at all? The first game was a pretty good end of the world type horror game. I didnt even give a crap that they hinted at Ellie being gay. But this trans thing? Homophobic shit? Why? Who are they selling this game to? I play games to not deal with this and now it's here. I was looking forward to this game all year, especially with the quaratine happening and now i'm going to give it a pass. It's so disappointing that Naughty Dog is going this route.

No. 86471

The naughty dog leaker confirmed that anyone in deveopment is at risk of being fired for questioning "progressive" choices. Its definitely a transdev thing.
Making women "ugly" isn't an issue for me. Look at Heather from silent Hill 3. They're literally trying to make women as masculine as possible to soothe the feelings of trans? It makes no sense to go overboard on this. Ellie wasn't an overly feminine character in the first game anyways. This feels very fucking weird and stupid. The plot is even worse.

Heather from SH3 is cute and femme, what are you talking about? The only thing they really changed about design was giving her slightly wavy hair and a skirt instead of pants. I like her design and personality a lot though.

Ellie was always a tomboy, (which lacks massive representation, let's be real.) Women do come in all shapes and sizes. I've never met an extremely hyper femme or hyper masculine woman before. Usually women are just women, even if they wear skirts or sweat pants. The problem is Ellie was always pretty much a tomboy and there was no need at all to 'masc' her up to avoid hurt feelings. I just do not get this choice they are making. No one wins here.

Imagine setting up an interest post virus world where people are taken over by plants and then you have a scene where Ellie didnt know what an ice cream truck was because she was born after the virus.

It'll still sell as even though the leaks are prominent there are mass crowds that lap up anything. But I think the reviewers will be the harshest crowd.

Cause she legit has no clue what she's talking about. A good example is her ABC news video where she's playing Watchdogs and an npc gets a purse stolen and she says that the game sets this woman npc up to be violated.

You have to remember we knew next to nothing about it. It's reveal trailer at e3 was revolving around Ellie's sexuality with gameplay in the last bit.

So what are these rumors I heard that Naughty Dog actually made their animators watch gruesome videos of people getting beaten and killed so they wouldn't make the scenes of Ellie and her gf being beaten "sexy"? Any credence to that?

I heard that too, I know it's a practice in movies for crime scene stuff.

I feel like there's a difference between making your staff look at crime scene videos/pictures and making them look at videos of the actual crime occurring. That's shit that gives people PTSD.

It was never Crystal's game it was her and her brother's. She all but ignores Zelda's Sheik because it doesn't fit in her agenda. The fact Peach has her own DS game and was included in Mario games as a playable character, but isn't the title character so isn't always going to have her own stuff.

Wouldn't surprise me. The scene is so gruesome that it's absolutely over the top in how intense it is. It's not just blood and gore you see in action games and think nothing of it, it's an actual beloved character being beaten to a pulp by someone the player doesn't give a shit about and then made to watch as her girlfriend is killed in a very disturbing way. And to top it all off, the killer becomes the new main character. That's just sick and disturbing on so many levels and I'm not at all surprised at the claim that 70% of the original staff walked out. It's horrifying how anyone would think this was a good idea, especially when the marketing played so heavily on showcasing the lesbian couple.

This. Honestly there's no defending Sarkeesian. She's a con artist and a hack who saw an opportunity for profit and took it. While what she was doing was a good idea on a theoretical level, she wasn't the right person for the task.

That's so stupid. It's a post apocalyptic scenario and the player knows that Joel is far from being a saint but he did whatever he could to save Ellie from being vivisected.

In TLoU2, he gets brutally killed and then spat on. They even added that animation from Ellie's point of view when you see blood coming out of his cracked skull.
I liked the first game and I don't consider myself attached to the characters yet I found the scene disturbing.
And then to top it all, you're supposed to play as the killer, the totally buffed "woman" and care for her?
They try to make her extremely likeable by adding shit like she saves children with medicine which is so cheap.
Also, Abby is supposed to be a biological woman but looking at the model they used for making abby, they removed her curves and other sings of femininity on Abby which confirms what an article said that they deliberately make women looking more manly and men looking more feminine to be trans inclusive.

What gets me is the people saying "What you saying a woman can't be buff?? How sexist!!" They used a fucking bodybuilder for her body. It's the end of the fucking world. There isn't gonna be specialized gains made for women no gyms to do specialized workouts to optimize the look getting that huge on old and weak rations without stimulants is pretty impossible.

I just don't understand why they went with this plot for the sequel. There is no possible way they thought "murder the protagonist from the first game" was going to go over well with fans, even if the villain wasn't some weird social justice thing. It seriously feels like some gamergate parody, especially how they took the model for ellie's gf and literally gave her a hook nose and an incel chin. >>86450

Way back when the first game came out Neil Druckmann said in an interview when asked about a sequel that "I think the world is ripe for more stories, but as far as the journey Joel and Ellie goes on it ends with this game." Somehow that's turned into "let's do a sequel with these characters and then kill them off." I just really want to know the reasoning behind it. Like >>86689 said, maybe they wanted the money a sequel would bring but knew they could never live up to the hype so decided they would rather have a complete trainwreck than another meh game? Did someone insist on having Ellie and Joel be in the sequel, but not care what actually happened to them? Is this all an elaborate set up for some shitty tv/movie spin-off? Find out next time on dragon ball z.

Also, I know everyone's forgotten/accepted it by now but it's still so weird to me how they insisted the ellie/ellen page thing was a coincidence. Even the names, and the fact that she's a lesbian.

>Really wish Nintendo would rerelease N64 games at least

T h i s

They give you every console the same old ports. The N64 and the Game Cube have tons of good games that are now sadly forgotten. If I remember it correctly they actually planned a N64 and GC virtual console on the switch but removed it for some reasons.

The reason why I would love to see this happen is because as a fan of a now dead franchise like fzero I could go back and enjoy these classics. Specially F-zero x is such a treasure. The gameplay and soundtrack are top notch and I say this as a person who normally hates racing games. Or idk some old zelda or Super Mario Sunshine, stuff like that. It was also speculated that Super Mario Sunshine gets a new entry of the series on the switch, which I hope happens because I remember really enjoying it as a kid lol

Nintendo is an absolutely retarded company. Of course they can re-release older games that are hard to come by with a physical copy and make bank, but they dont want to. Then they act surprised pikachu face when people pirate their shit.

>Of course they can re-release older games that are hard to come by with a physical copy and make bank

They can but they said that they do not want to because they have ~philosophy~ that things that lying around in shelves and in storage are worthless or some shit like this and therefore they only produce a limited amount of copies of each game. This is also the reason why they have shortage all the time because they rather see the value sky-rocking of old game then being worthless in their eyes. I don't know, that's the way they see it but it also won't change the fact they could re-Release everything as a digital version as they used to do on the DS, Wii and WiiU on the virtual console.

I thoroughly enjoyed Persona 3 and Persona 4, but I'm sort of afraid of Persona 5. Call me triggered, but I feel the series is becoming too waifu-bait-y and it gives me the heeby jeebies.

Persona 3 and 4 was like, "You can date your classmates, they're kind of cool normal girls!" Persona 5 be like "You can date your classmates but also date your teacher who's also a sex-worker-maid, you can date your doctor, you can have romantic interactions with 2 BDSM loli twins who fuse into a 3rd loli!"

It looks really cringe to me from the outside. Thoughts, anyone?

Granted I didn't go with the romance route with any girl because it's 100% optional to begin with, I just maxed the confidants without dating them. Most of the girl characters were fine and had strong, enjoyable personalities and contributed to the story.

FF7 Remake was also fantastic though I still have to replay chapters for the extra scenes. Animal Crossing for switch has been great but I'm taking a break after playing for about a month straight.

Anyone else playing games that they've had wanted to play but never had the time?

I played it the vanilla version it came out and was less than impressed with the story and characters. The battle system is probably the best in the Persona series yet but goddamn the writing was so shitty and inconsistent. It's cheap nowadays though so it's worth $10 or less to try it out.

That blog was legendary. I never finished the game as I got stuck at some part, but still enjoyed the plot analysis. The art and story in RoR is top notch. I wish we could still get such games in the post-PS2 era! Why there were so many risky, interesting Japanese games on the PS2 and not so many later on? Was the production so cheap back then that they were affordable despite the 3D graphics? Or was it because PS2 was a bestselling console?

I had no idea. I'm so honestly sick of lazy writing when it comes to female characters. It's always like this. How hard is it to write a female MC like an actual person and not a plot device? Naughty dog is absolute trash and they should have never released a sequel to such a good game.

I think PS2 absolutely had the best titles on there. It's still my favorite console ever made. All my favorite horror games exist on it. Like the original Silent hill 2-4 and Fatal frame series. I still need to hunt down Kuon, but that's gonna be a while before i get a good price for it. PS2 was superior because it was backwards compatible too. I played so many PS1 horror games on it.

My question is… if Elizabeth killed her own father, wouldn't that mean she wasn't even born in the original universe??

Some other random inconsistencies in the story/setting (massive nitpicking incoming in 3…2…1):
- Elizabeth was locked away most of her life with no human interaction, but behaves like a quirky, cute Disney princess with above the average social skills
- audiologs being scattered around in Rapture made sense, as the whole city was pillaged. Why would people record their thoughts and leave them around in Columbia??
- the plasmids also made sense in the original game, scientific advancements being one of the themes. Why do vigors exist in Columbia? Noone other than Booker seem to be using them
- not an incostistency, but I hoped the game would address the themes of race/nationalism it started out with, and not dump it in the second half to introduce the parallel world shit
- the original trailer suggested that Songbird would have a bigger role
- it also portrayed Columbia as a huge open world area which it was..not

Most of the games did look like PS4 titles. And some of the indie games were outright funny. They can’t be serious about that cartoon furry teenager angst game?!

I am a consoomer and ready to be hyped, but this is not it. There is no game that screams "new generation", they mostly look generic and just not as good as expected. That being said, I do like Horizon Zero Dawn 2 and the game where you are a stray cat in the future. And perhaps the announcements from Ubisoft and EA will be better.

I am not sure about Deathloop. It it the most creative game so far (not hard with that competition), but the trailer also did not convince me. The Resident Evil trailer was alright imo, but the way the reboot changed the whole series is still weird to me. They basically made a whole new setting and style, but still call it "Resident Evil".

No. 95676

To be honest they all looked like PS4 games when they showed gameplay. I have no idea how I'm supposed to see it as a next gen console when they seemed to peak at PS4, the trailer was mostly showing off how many floating particles they're able to render and idgaf about that. The games were pretty meh in general because they were just sequels or reboots of games I really had no interest in beforehand. But that's just my subjective opinion. Ghostwire and Demon's souls looked surprisingly good though but jesus christ the Resident Evil was a joke.

When I saw that fucking teenage furry game the first thing I thought was who sucked off who to get this licensed and greenlit. It literally looks like the creators are transbians who post fetish porn of their characters on Twitter, like no exaggeration I'm being serious and not just banting. Made me feel uncomfortable as hell.

I have mixed feelings about this, from what has been shown in the trailer, I fear they'll take a more bombastic approach à la Bloodborne/DkS3, losing the intimate and melancholic atmosphere that made the game so great (the world is supposed to be dull and muted due to the fog). It also looks like they are incorporating themes from the successor games that were not in DeS, many shots in the trailer were crepuscular, and the one with the skeleton in Shrine of Storms was a huge fail imo (also lol at hyping the reaper when it's one of the weakest ennemy in the game). A part of the original game's charm came from its simplicity and small scope, I fear that they won't translate it well.

Sorry for overanalyzing this 1 minute trailer, I'm a huge Soulsborne sperg and I've actually wanted a Demon's Souls remake for years, so I'm scared they'll fuck it up. I'm still hyped though, and if they actually include the sixth area and completely rehaul the world tendency system, that would be a huge improvement to the original game.

I only enjoyed RE7 as a stand alone game, but i'm not really into first person horrors in general. I like the option to at least have 3rd person mode. I feel like it's scarier. they should scrap RE in general for now and work on a new IP, but capcom is massively lazy and wont do that sadly.

omg same. I was completely creeped out by all the elin mains. seemed to be the number one scrote pick. I play as a panda/chipmunk/furball since it's friggin adorable rolling n roaming around hunting down those abominations

>And Andromeda wasn't bad

Agreed. I rather enjoyed Andromeda. found it very ironic how gamers of all ppl were making fun of the characters like calling them ugly n shit even tho these 3d models were supremely better looking than any scrote gamer i've ever seen… judging by the cruel, highly lookist comments made, you'd think it was coming from supermodels but nope. just your typical fuggo scrote gamers. it's a shame how the animations like the facial rigging were very awkward in the earlier versions. made all the shortcomings all the more unflattering.

My favorite so far is Astrologaster but it's so incredibly niche idk if I can really recommend it. Shakespeare, astrology, and medicine.

Are you joking? She doesn't look like a woman with small or non existent cup size. She looks like a he with pecs. Look, I'm all for decent, non sexualized representation of women in media that don't necessarily cater to men, but that thing is not a woman and "she" does women no service.

Also, I thought someone was joking when they told me the leaked ending.
Here it is:
Ellie is about to kill Abby but realizes revenge is bad and lets her live. Abby still attacks her and eats(? maybe cuts off ?) her fingers. Ellie can't play guitar anymore and all her memories of Joel start fading.
A good number of sources confirm that ending but I'm still hoping it's just a huge marketing ploy to create fuss about the game.

No. 96396

Yes, I have. I used to be in a volleyball team and we would dress and shower together meaning also get naked in front of each other. That pic I posted looks like a guy's chest. It has nothing to do with size. The entire body structure looks as if they glued a man's body with a vaguely woman's head.
The sportswoman's/bodybuilding woman they used for modelling Abby doesn't look anything like their final product even though the inspiration is buff she's still clearly a woman.

No. 96397

Even if the sex scene by itself wasn't so disgusting, movies are made to show a story and a sex scene is generally there to show the characters' relationship or because it's gonna be relevant somewhat. If it's not relevant then it's gonna be there for fanservice, as in, it's supposed to look sexy.

Here this is a sex scene in a video game. The point of a video game is to entertain gamers with good level design and gameplay. Stories are not necessary unless they're written for specific genres. If you wanted to show that these two characters are in love to each other and very close, you don't have to be that explicit in a video game because it brings nothing new or interesting to the table (and I can argue that this also applies to many movies and TV shows as well), just show the characters kissing and the screen fades to black or whatever. And it does't work as fanservice either for reasons I don't even have to explain. I already feel way better about my tiny breasts just knowing what the """woman""" looks like in this.

No. 96399

I don't even have an A cup (dunno how American sizes work so not sure what an AA cup is) and my breasts absolutely do NOT look like this. And none of the women with small breasts I've seen look like that either. That's just straight up insulting, you might as well call flat chested women "manly men" while you're at it. That chest looks like deformed pecs at best.

No. 96401

I have an AA cup probably even smaller if it’s even possible literally 0 boob and my chest does not look like that at ALL. If that’s supposed to be a woman then you might as well tell me everyone in that animation room has literally never seen an actual woman before.

You two have to realize there are other women except you and bodies come on many shapes, even though popculture is feeding you images of the only one right way a woman is supposed to look like.

Ok then I didn't feel like it's relevant but here goes. I'm used to going to public baths (not sure if that's a good translation) where women all of ages, sizes, body types, skin colors, etc. come do their business and I've never, EVER seen breasts this deformed. And the breasts in your picture don't look at all like the fucked up shit in the sex scene in TLOU either, not sure what you're trying to prove here. The girl with the piercings are the closest to what I look like, to give you an idea.

Now you'll say "But anon, the first teaser means nothing, that was 8 years ago!" and okay, point taken, but let's move to recent times after the 2018 trailer.

Is it not an rpg anymore? Darn it, that's kind of killed my enthusiasm. I was hoping since it's actually based on a pen-and-paper rpg that the game would have some decent number crunch, skill customization etc. I'm not really interested in a watered down sort-of-rpg shooter.

Started playing BOTW again after sinking 300 hours into ACNH lol. I only have like 65 hours in BOTW despite owning it for like two years now… One of my favorite streamers is doing a master mode, permadeath run and it made me want to play again, seeing how much fun he was having (not on master mode or doing permadeath because I suck at games). It feels stupid to say but I’m starting to feel burnt out on ACNH even though I still want to change things on my island… that used to be fun, and it used to be the thing I’d sink more hours into if my interest started to wane, but now it just feels bad lol. Like, it just makes me hate my island more and more even though I make fun micro environments that I like. Feels much more fun now to just run around aimlessly in BOTW. I also finally beat my first two divine beasts (with no guide) and a major test of strength shrine!! I’m such a fucking terrible gamer and look up guides for everything, so it feels accomplishing to just figure it out myself for once haha. I also usually avoid combat at all costs (makes for my own fun challenge- to do things in the most convoluted way just to avoid all combat), but I started going out of my way to fight shit so I can get materials for upgrades, and even fight some small bosses like Hinoxes. Will I ever fight a Lynel? Probably not. But tomorrow I’m gonna try to do another divine beast, and maybe try fighting a Molduga. Maybe some more side quests too.

nta but I would. With the dlcs it's easily my favourite DS game, (Bloodborne is my favourite from soft game).
People shit on DS2 all the time but once you finish the entire game along with the dlcs, you feel like you've been on a really long journey. The one thing I like the most about DS2 is the choices you get to make in the end.
DS2 without dlcs is okay but the dlcs make all the difference. So get the Scholar of the First Sin. It's worth it imo. However playing online can be a bit tiresome. So many twinks when you're starting out since a lot of people have played it already. I got one shotted all the time.
Definitely. It feels as if the studio decided to not make Abby a tranny in the last moment so "she" looks like one but is officially a biological woman. I thought they would make a grand reveal during the pride month. The fact remains that they did intentionally cater to the trans populace by making female characters less feminine and male chars more feminine.

It's a good game, but lore wise, it's the weakest. The story is incomplete unless you get the DLC- scholar of the first sin. Also, there's the levels like Shrine of Amana and the Iron Keep, which make you wanna lose your mind. The game plays in favor of magic users a lot.

I think the only time since P3 when they heavily referenced the previous games was when they made Nyx the villain and the entire game was subtly a very direct sequel of the Snow Queen route in P1 but after that it's all just copypasted shit everywhere. Thank god the devs are moving on to other projects and other, younger developers will take over Persona. I hope they'll do something about the calendar system btw.

Honestly, the last good Persona game was P3 in my opinion. I could care less about p4, even though I beat it the year it came out and P5 was so disappointing that i didnt even remember finishing it. It was just..so disappointing.

not sure if this belongs here but I'm trying to play an old windows XP game. after a few unsuccessful attempts i found out the problem is the fact the cd has some file that windows 10 just doesn't like. I try to find a download of the game, find it, install a software to mount it, run into the same problem due to this file also being on this version. Only options are to somehow try to crack the game (I can't tell what the crack files are) or to try installing a virtual windows XP machine.

fucking windows 10. any tips?

Just came from a Reddit thread about The Last of Us 2 full of people shilling that Abby is trans…

Because a woman cant be jacked? Because the character is "built like a fridge" and theres no way a woman could maintain a strong physique? Even though its modeled off a real life female body builder…?

Is life even worth living?

If you happen to chose the virtual machine option let us know how it goes, I'm curious on how doable it is for old DOS games or things like Myst, Arcanum or Sierra games

>calender system
I really hate how reptitive the calendar system makes everything.
>spend a few days dealing with PLOT
>go to dungeon and grind for like a day or week
>spend rest of month dealing with hit or miss social links
>fight boss
I just hope the newer games get better writers or ditch social links and go back to pure dungeon crawling.

I think my favorite line in persona 5 was:
>Don't hit your girlfriend.

childhood game Pippa Funnell, so its pretty obscure to find a noCD hack for

I'm so sick of people begging for a Bloodborne 2. The game was perfect by itself, flawless direction and the story was self contained enough, it doesn't need a sequel. Do they really want a Dark Souls II and III situation, where fans whine that they are respectively too different and too similar to the original game? Just go find another video game to obsess over, Soulsborne clones are dime a dozen.

Aside from the fact that one wouldn't be able to be that jacked during an apocalypse with limited food resources and no gym, the bone structure of a woman's torso just doesn't look like that. Female body builders do not look like Abby despite still being jacked, and even though it was modeled off of a real woman they still obviously grave her the body of a man so that trans people could relate to her. Everyone who says that Abby looks like a woman is blind.

anon there's no way a woman is getting shoulders like that without juicing. which would be fine if she was juicing in-universe, but she wasn't. she also doesn't look anything like the woman she was "modeled" after.

Anon, it was modeled off of a real woman, but they tweaked her body to look masculine. Even her first ever leaked pic is looking less buff than the definitive ingame model, they kept on making her bigger and less feminine.
Also what the other anons said, a real woman looking like that would have to be a roid monster.

That's not even the only problem with the calendar system, it worked well in P3 because the story and the system where designed to go well together but in P4 and P5 it makes everything so needlessly long just to it can fit with the Japanese school/fiscal year so you have
