It is indeed an old flash game, there are videos on it that are over a decade old.

I remember playing it on the official site and there was also a spin-off with characters from the devs' other game series (La-Mulana). It's becoming a bit of a Coffee Stain Studios situation, where the meme game gets more attention than the "serious" one, I guess.

Nta but I played Horizon Forbidden West first since it was bundled, and I think it depends on how far you get. The beginning was a bit of a slog and the new (to me) combat system was a bit difficult to get used to, but once I got into the "actual" game, I couldn't put it down. I had a better time in the Chainscrape/Barren Light area, but had the most fun once I got past the embassy event. If you've been playing past the embassy for a while, it may not be for you.

Same anon, if you’re an avid gamer that regularly suffers problems because your PC is too under powered to play newer games you could look into renting a gaming rig. The only problem with those is you need a stable internet connection and a data center that’s close by, which can be a problem when you’re in aus (but I haven’t been there in ages so maybe things are better now).

I've been wanting to replay Final Fantasy X again, it is one of my favorite games. I think now that I'm older, I realize just how well written Yuna as a character is. So many games make female characters moid fantasies in a pornstar body. They are le heckin epic badass like Capitan Marvel or whatever thats so cringe and far removed from female behavior. Yuna is written with her ultimate goal of sacrificing her self and life to save Spira. Womens greatest duty is the sacrifice they make for the people they love, cherish and they see the greater good in humanity and will give themselves up for it.

KH3 was trash, and this is coming from someone who played all of the other games (even the Ds, PSP and the PC online thingy too). You're right with saying that all the soul was sucked from it. Visually it's very bad, they fixed some lighting here and there later but it's still very odd and plastic looking. Some characters are straight up creepy (like Mickey and Hercules), I get that this was a new engine for them but they had plenty of time, but of course this is Nomura we're talking about, the one who halted FF15's production for 10 fucking years (and is still salty about it).
The story is a convoluted anti-climatic mess. It was the final chapter for the Xehanort saga but it just felt so weak. You'd expect this big flashy final fight but it's not what happens, instead it's an edgy weird dream-like shit you won't understand unless you paid attention to every little detail about some spin-off you forgot about. The Disney worlds are laughable and feel like bad adverts for the latest cashgrab Disney movie.

They had one job holy shit. This sucks because replaying KH1 the character development was so neat and the ending made me tear, KH2 was finally finding Riku and that ending was so perfect. The fact that they can't even manage to pull another emotional story/ending in KH3 is such bs. Though honestly not sure what would they add? I remember the convoluted "but akshully"s in other KHs and hated it so much. You have no idea how thankful I am for this confirmation because I was this close buying it next week, I'd rather keep KH2's ending as the last one in my mind.

>course this is Nomura we're talking about, the one who halted FF15's production for 10 fucking years (and is still salty about it).

I feel you anon. I'm someone who has only played KH1 and KH2 and I felt the same way you did when playing them. KH1's character development was nicely done for what it was and I still tear up when I get to the ending kek. And KH2 though felt a bit dumb in the writing department, still managed to get me to tear up with the ending seeing how Sora was finally able to reunite with Kairi and Riku and just watching them be together. Honestly the game should've ended there but we all knew that wasn't gonna happen because of how popular the series was at this time.

When KH3's official release date was announced, I remember not feeling all that excited. My hype for the series had been on a huge decline by the time it was officially confirmed and when the game came out, I had no desire to go out and get it. Still haven't played it and after spoiling myself, I don't regret not purchasing day one because from what I've seen, it's just a bunch of BS.

>>297347
The game definitely feels lifeless from what I've seen in gameplay videos. The worlds just feel dead if that makes sense?

>This was the final chapter for Xehanort


When I learned that this was the closing saga for Xehanort "The Seeker of Darkness" saga and they'll be moving onto a new chapter, I noped the fuck out.

Samefag, I forgot to add some more things I don't like about the game. There are no Final Fantasy characters, like at all. One of the things that made KH unique was the weird mix of Disney and FF + original characters. For some reason they decided to not put them in and do only Disney instead.
The designs for the protags are a huge downgrade. Riku is Noctis, Sora's hair just gets awfully spikier and Nomura's autistic hyperfixation was now PLAID so both designs had to have it.
Sora's character development gets erased. Instead he's just an idiot giggling and spouting repetitive bullshit most of the time.
Spoiler for the secret ending it's a sequence with new characters called Verum Rex, but here's the thing. Every character that appears is a copy of FF15's cast. Nomura didn't get over it and decided to just make the same characters but in KH, which is bad but hilarious at the same time. The Noctis copycat looks like a do not steal oc.
Lastly KH4's trailer already exists and I don't know what the fuck they're doing anymore.

No. 297496

Man Kingdom Hearts, I was obsessed back when 2 first came out, was in my slight edgy phase and loved Organization 13.
But then it took so long for 3 to come out I completely outgrew it, and I never cared for the Disney stuff in the first place.
And did that 'new' trailer already come out a few years ago? If I remember correctly the uncannyness between the photorealistic city and Sora's model was just creepy.

A lot of anons have, I think people discussed it previously (maybe in the previous thread).

The story was a clusterfuck in true kh fashion but the gameplay was enjoyable imo. It's the hardest to master and it feels a lot more finnicky. I cleared all the hardest bosses in kh2fm and bbsfm when I was younger but I couldn't clear the data fights in kh3, I'll probably attempt it when I get more free time.
I honestly don't think it was utterly soulless besides the Frozen world, but it's a shame there were no ff characters. Fwiw I'm usually not a fan of disney at all and KH is the only disney related media I consoom. I just love the KH cheese. That said character wise Sora was the weakest in KH3, including Riku so if you're in it for the story it's not that worth I suppose.

I was sometimes frustrated with it, but ultimately looking back at the experience after some time has passed, it was nice. But it's nothing like Disco Elysium, it's more… well, for the lack of better term, all over the place with bizarre ideas. And core "being a deliveryman" gameplay can be a little tedious if you're not used to this kind of thing. The character stories are interesting though, soundtrack is excellent and there are some really beautiful, cinematic moments. You really have to give it a try to know if it's up your alley or not.

Seems like the FF series isn't nearly as prestigious as it once was, and people stopped giving a fuck after FFXII or FFXIII. I haven't played either games so I wonder why exactly. All I know is that FFXI is an MMO so it supposedly felt out of place compared to the previous games, XII was also supposed to be an MMO and it went into some development hell because of some director leaving and being replaced, everyone complained that XIII was too linear and then not linear enough, and XIV was also an MMO and a shitty one until some huge update and XV is an incomplete mess that was supposed to be a XIII spinoff. Meanwhile other SE games like Bravely Default felt more like FF games than some FF games. I wish I knew what's going on in their office.

So the Xenoblade Chronicles LP I was watching finally finished, and wow how did I avoid getting spoiled on the fact that Alvis is actually an AI. And there I go immediately changing my opinion of him from meh to cool lol.

I think it's hyped because it was one of the very few JPRGs on the Wii and because of Nintendo fanboys who hate anything too Japanese and anime thought it seemed less anime than other JRPGs. I liked XB2 a lot more when it comes to the story and characters, I suggest you try it.

I'll watch the LP whenever the guy I'm watching gets along to it. But I'm really not interested enough to buy it myself. Don't have a Switch anyway.

Who knows, I'll never understand how XB1 has this reputation because when I played it myself it really reminded me of these 90s scifi/fantasy anime I watched as a kid. As for XB2, the story is really good but avoid spoilers at all costs. The design of the main character was a bit offputting at first but I didn't mind it after some time playing. I played the game with the original voices, I saw a few cutscenes with the English voices and all the characters sounded awful, like I was watching a terrible parody.

kek it's way too scary for me. i spent all night reading the lore though, which is very much my thing (i love eldritch/grimdark horror).

i'm going to give termina a try instead because i dig the vague danganronpa vibes, it doesn't seem as terrifying, and marina is apparently a dude

I was reading your post and thought to myself 'is this Nonna'd first FF game?' kek. See I'm really happy you enjoyed it and it's your favorite game, but believe me when I tell you that a game 10 years it's senior (FFXII) does everything way better. When we got it we were like is it? Where are the cool designs? Interesting side quests? Hello? Anything? The closest thing to soul-full was knowing more about Cidny and her reason for why she's interested in cars.
Ngl the concept of brotherhood/sacrife was REALLY attractive for the secret fujo inside of me, but ugh I'm sorry Nonny I was gonna spill my guts on why it flopped. I really wanted it to be good and successed,but stupid director was too busy trying to make a universe and shoving noodles advertisements, his other game is FF type-0

(Goddamm this place opens my appetite for ranting about old stuff lol)

I did try playing ffviii and struggled a lot with the combat system so I gave up kek. I have ffix and ffvii sitting in my steam library untouched.
for me I liked ffxv because it felt like going on a roadtrip with friends. I liked the main characters, the scenery, driving around then cooking and camping with the boys, the soundtrack, the dialogue and how the boys banter with each other (the way they moved around and interacted almost felt like I was playing with real people rather than ai), plus there was tons of minigame and postgame content (fishing, photography, chocobo races, pinball, gambling, challenge dungeons, etc). the ending absolutely broke me too.
the only things that really stood out to me (as a ff noob) as bad were the grindy soulless fetch sidequests plus the way some cool characters were neglected (luna, aranea, and ravus especially) - and having to play the dlc just to learn more about the main characters/villain. oh also the pitioss dungeon was an abomination but luckily it's optional post-game content.

Yeah, F&H1 is terrifying. Every time the crow mauler enters the dungeon I freak the fuck out, kek. But I still force myself to play it anyway, for some reason I almost feel like I'm cheating by watching playthroughs or reading the wiki. I'm saving Termina for after I beat the first game, although I'm dying to know what's up with Daan. Not thrilled about the Marina thing however.

After playing FFXV, playing oldies becomes harder and harder since it's alot more beginner-friendly and everything is actually explained kek. I recommend that you watch cutscenes gameplays like I did because the grind is so bad.

Totally agreed on pros and cons. But in my humble opinion they threw the ball on the writing which made fair amount of FF fans rage quit the franchise. One thing specifically was really early but we knew we were fucked; So you have a gunslinger, Butler/Chef/Assassin/driver/Nanny all in one, buff body guard with giant sword and shield AND a magical prince, right? Remember when Ravus found Noctis and gang in one of the military bases? Remember when he bitch punched him that he hit Regalia? His gang didn't do shit and stayed in their places just standing there.. wouldn't Ignis pull him back behind him or Gladio to jump infront of him or something? That stuck like sore thumb and so out out of character, which is the selling point iirc, 4 bros looking out for each other and all. (And many many more things jfc all memories are flooding back in)

Though to be fair I played it day one until Gladio's episode release then ditched it because it was buggy as hell, extremely slow loading and loads every 1 min for 1 min and was so bareboned. But I watched the rest of the episodes and maybe they patched the game enough for it to be good? The cult following thing? I legit hope do because I don't think I'll like the new one.

All this talk about FF reminds me that I kind of want to play the FF pixel remaster because that means all 2D FF games now have a translation in my first language but SE didn't release physicak copies on the Switch except in Japan.

The patches were so fucking good though. I think if you got the game after all dlcs were out and all the patches were out you’d have a completely different ffxv experience than the early players. Just the fact that you can switch between party members, switching between different skills, weapons (from sword to a literal fps style gun) during combat made it so much better than just playing Notic’s barebones warp point playstyle.

I'm also considering getting FF10 and 10-2 in Japan just so I can have a cartridge for FF10-2 as opposed to a download code.

I was going to restart ffviii and just follow along with a 100% achievements guide, so I can focus on enjoying everything and not getting mad about the combat.
yeah there was a bit of bad writing choices especially in the main story so I can see why some don't like the game. for me all the dlc worked perfectly - in current year you should have no issues playing it. I played it on my older pc via steam and did the dlc for prompto, ignis, gladio and ardyn. I will say gladios dlc is my least favorite out of all of them, he is not exactly a complex character lol. the rest were definitely worth playing and gave backstories for all the characters.

The way FF7 was originally translated is a shitshow. You can easily get confused, lose nuance, characters' moods and personalities can get misrepresented… So I'd definitely advise modding it if you want the best experience with the original. Thing is though it's going to take some legwork:

I say this as a massive fan of the game, if you're playing it as an adult and not a 14 year old girl, you won't at all find the story good. It's creative for its genre and the world has a certain aesthetic that works. These are games for teenagers at the end of the day, they're enjoyed at an age where you're just starting to get into adult themes but are still too young to notice the anime silliness and Saturday morning cartoon villainy with many of the minor characters. Back then Final Fantasy was more targeted towards a younger audience, and all of us fans grew up in the 90s or 00s playing it in front of a CRT on a Saturday morning.

Romance isn't really a big thing in 3H compared to Awakening and Fates. It's just some cutscene you get at the very end of one route.

I'd recommend it. It's pretty easy to just put the game on the easiest difficulty and not put effort in if the gameplay doesn't interest you. Personally I really liked the story, it's just irritating that in order to get the complete picture of things you have to play through all the routes, the school part of which is all the same just with a different cast. You can indeed romance characters, there's a sort of romantic scene you can get toward the end of the school phase and then an engagement cutscene at the end, so not much but it's something.

Yeees please do! So many people don’t know about these updates (the patched the game with new things all the way to 2019!) and keep pointing out issues about the gameplay that have been added. I guess it was too late since people played it at launch, got disappointed and never touched it again. It literally feels like a whole new game when you switch between the characters. There’s so many new combat techniques to learn that are unique to each character.

I’m gonna be really annoying and list what I think are great additions they made to ffxv here:
>unlock the ascension ability to switch between party members (you have to unlock it, only after that do you get the menu in pic related)
>episode ignis, episode prompto and episode ardyn are really good and complete the overall story experience
>regalia type-d fucking monster truck is super fun (ask Cindy for it)
>new story scenes in chapter 12 about the Astrals
>new story scene in chapter 5 with the bros discussing Ardyn

FF9 is the best game imo next to 15. 12 is fantastic and despite Fran's design, she's one of the best characters in the game.

I'm sure Atlus still issues with money just like when they made a bunch of P4 spinoffs and released P3FES and P3P just a year apart from each other. And they take time to release new mainline games so maybe they're starting to develop P6 but it's not ready to be announced. They announced p5 for the PS3 in 2013 and it got released at the end of 2016 on the PS3 and PS4 instead of the initial dates that were announced and they announced SMT5 in March 2017, yet it got released at the end of 2021 and it obviously looked like it was missing some stuff or like the story was rewritten when compared to what was said during interviews by the devs and writers.

I mean, they were bought by Sega a few years ago because they didn't make that much money so who knows. We're talking about the dumbass company that only really has SMT and Persona as their big money maker. They also announced a project years ago, I don't remember its name but we don't even know anything about it besides some promo art circulating online.

Vintage story has a bit of a difficult learning curve, it looks like Minecraft but has a different way of progressing which is looking at your handbook most of the time or videos to be honest because you have no fucking idea how to make pottery, but once you get through that hurdle it's very comfy and less aggravating.

I'm not a Persona player but if they added a female protagonist in a PSP port, that's probably because the PSP was very popular with otome fans.
If the remake doesn't come out on the Switch, which appears to be the new popular otome gaming platform, then your chances of playing as the female MC are extremely low. On the other hand, if a Switch version is confirmed, then it's very likely they'll add her in that version (as DLC or otherwise).

Its gotta say a lot about the scroteyness within Atlus that you have these other jrpgs with dating elements that have adopted it as the new standard to include a female playable option like fire emblem and rune factory, yet then you have Atlus who had a femc back in 2009…only to be unapologetic in never doing it again

No. 301419

>>301417
They'd rather create one MC for one game, they made the FEMC very different from the male one in terms of design AND personality. IIRC the devs said they couldn't imagine a female MC in P4 which is dumb as hell. But I definitely would have understood that about P5 because of the MC's reputation at the beginning of the game. It looks strange because they're silent protagonists though. It's the same for mainline SMT games, you have SMT if with a male and female MC, and the female MC is tge canon one because she shows up in P1 and P2 as an NPC. And then you have pretty boys that looks kind of girly specifically so the female players can self-insert (confirmed in at least one interview about Flynn in SMT4) or have them as husbandos or both at the same time.

they couldn't care less about what's popular with otome fans. it's very unlikely she'll be added given their track record. I wasn't joking at all when I said it'd be less surprising for her to be a love interest than an mc option, that's how atlus moves. and their dlc extends no further than $100 worth of costumes and music from older games, when they feel like adding a feature people care about they lock it to a rerelease of the entire game.

We're going to have a P4 remake someday, and they'll make the Yosuke romance option a paid DLC and the devs will justify it with "at the time of the original P4 we weren't ready to tackle this topic just yet (see that one interview about Catherine Fullbody and Vincent being bisexual all along) but it wasn't in the original and we wanted the remake to be faithful to the original!

I'm years late to complain about this but Breach mode in Deus Ex Mankind Divided is why I hate SquareEnix… Only thing I have left to plat the game but it is such unnecessary gatcha/microtransaction shit that they definitely forced the devs to put in the game.

As more and more in Japanese game developers kowtow to the ever-growing censorious demands of Western markets, Capcom have revealed that their in-house localization efforts work off of the belief that “games developed under Japanese norms can end up hurting users.”

RELATD: ‘Dynasty Warriors’ Developer Koei Tecmo Creates Dedicated Quality Assurance Team To Handle “Everything From Functional Bugs To Local Culture And Social Issues”

Like Koei Tecmo earlier this week, the Mega Man developer’s editorial intent was recently brought to public attention by Twitter user @Mondblut1984, who discovered the information on the ‘social sustainability’ section of the company’s official Investor Relations page.

First published sometime around January 2022 (per the Internet Archive), the page in question details Capcom’s commitment towards “serving as a responsible and trusted member of society”, specifically in regards to their “relationship with customers”.

Therein, Capcom provided insight into how this relationship factored into their game development, with the company behind the Street Fighter franchise noting that their attentions were focused on two elements: “in-game purchases” and “localization and culturalization”.

While their rather standards efforts towards the former area are best summed up by their declaration that, “In principle, we minimize gacha elements in the mobile games we develop; in our home video games, we provide any content required to enjoy the full game free of charge, while offering some additional content at low cost,” it is in their plan for the latter that Capcom showed their hand.

“Capcom games are enjoyed worldwide,” they explained. “In the fiscal year ended March 2022, the percentage of home video games sold overseas was 83.1%. Naturally, translation (localization) of video games developed in Japanese is required so that game players around the world can enjoy them.”

“The volume and importance of localization is increasing year after year due to factors such as improvements in game machine performance, support for online gameplay, and an increase in the number of languages accompanying a more diversified, global audience,” Capcom continued. “As such, Capcom’s localization team is involved in game development from the initial stages.”

“By carrying out localization concurrently with development, rather than following completion of the Japanese language version as had been done in the past, Capcom is able to launch games simultaneously around the globe,” write the Resident Evil developer.

Concluding their statement with a disappointing bombshell, Capcom happily informed potential business partners, “What is more, depending on the country, simply translating games developed under Japanese norms can end up hurting users unexpectedly due to historical, religious, or cultural differences. As such, we focus on employing staff from around the world to culturize the games so that they can be enjoyed by all, regardless of locale.”

I really loved "Harvest moon DS" and "harvest moon tale of two towns". Harvest moon DS is a 2d game and while it is a more challenging game, it's very cute and nostalgic for me, and the music is great. Tale of two towns is a 3D game that has some pretty cute bachelor's in it (which the original havest moons where lacking IMO, they only ever had a lot of really cute bachelorettes). It's also a bit easier than the DS version.
I also really loved "harvest moon island of happiness". It's a good balance between the two I mentioned earlier, so maybe try that one first… Plus it has Vaughn…

Looks like they're remaking the FF7 games into a single mobile game? Idk how they'll implement it but it's apparently going to have gacha shit.

Kek same. I know western games take a lot to make and there are some excellent people behind them but they're all so similar, ugly and dull.

Some of them are good but the majority have no charm, they're just fixated on realism, self-inserts, politics and ugly ass designs (and uncanny game models) that look like they're made from the same Artstation-dwelling concept artist.

KEK, glad I never got into Fable. I think it's inevitable that more and more games get troons in them though. They've won the culture war. Even Rockstar, a company usually quite happy to insult every group of people possible, removed the negative comments your characters can OPTIONALLY make toward drag queen NPCs because some retards got their knickers in a twist thinking they were transwomen.

doesn't look like a tranny to me, looks like an unattractive woman without any makeup/weird coomerized design. the chris troon seems to only be a level designer who is a recent hire so I assume he doesn't have much of a say in character design, in that case it's not his self-insert.

NTA but you have a pretty warped perception of what an average woman looks like, if you think your pic is "average". The other character looks average or below average to me (not "hideous") but maybe because you're not used to seeing women like that, you have higher beauty standards for other women. I see nothing wrong with her design.

It's pretty telling that scrotes don't give a single fuck about male characters being fugly but so many women itt are seething over a character that looks like any normal irl woman without any makeup or surgery. Why does it bother you so much having to see a single character (male or female) that isn't conventionally attractive? Ever think about that?

Ok then more spoilers for FFXVI: There's no gay sex scene. Dion is gay and kisses his boyfriend on-screen at some point. No clue if it's a quick peck on the lips or if they're passionately making out for 5 minutes straight like some anons on /v/ said though. They adopt an orphan girl at some point to make it extra yaoi. There's a scene between Clive and Jill, we don't see them fuck but they're naked outside and hugging and all lovey-dovey after they do. Some people compared that to Cloud and Tifa allegedly fucking before the final dungeon in FF7 except way more in your face and in HD but I never finished that game so no clue if it's really that similar. I have no idea if seeing Clive's HD butt cheeks is also another reason why the game is banned. There's some villain who has sex with a shapeshifting creature so we see him eat out the blonde femme fatale character at first, who then shifts into another male character during or after that, and then into the guy's dead mother, in a scene that would make Freud come back from the dead. That scene is the most explicit I guess, it's just not subtle.

So new Destiny lore. It's sort of inevitable with long running games, but it's so obviously made up as they were going along. The current lore was probably on nobody's mind when the first game came out.
So the Traveler inadvertently created the Witness… And this new focus on 'meaning' and 'purpose' that I can't really relate to.

I agree they look pretty, but they just don't look like VTMB to me. They look like plain, dim environments with some fog. There's no exaggerated gothic architecture, no gargoyles everywhere for no reason, and everything looks super clean and sleek but also super stiff.
I was watching the E3 demo again and I think >>302641 is a pretty good guess for how it'll go if they do ever finish the game, too serious and too safe yet still misogynist and tone-deaf (check the newscaster audio at the beginning of vidrel, about how 15 women were found at an apartment above a massage parlour, being kept in there to be "used as sex slaves." The news bits in the first game were mostly jokes about the in-game quests or references to other horror media, so where does that fit in?)
Anyway, Paradox doesn't even have the game listed on their website anymore so we'll see how it goes. I kind of hope they wait a while and just quietly drop it.

>What is your favorite worlds/sceneries/art direction in games you have played?


Personally I remember talking to anons here on lc about the charm in the dreamfall the longest journey aesthetic. I just love the visualization of a middle eastern looking city that's portrayed as modern and futuristic while keeping it's cultural architecture in combination with a female gazey cute 2000s outfit on the protagonist.

I played Tales of Wind a few years ago, during release.
It's not worth it. It's VERY p2w and at first, you don't notice this because the game usually makes you log in in a new server (I think they make new servers every few weeks), and when they make a new server there's like a… level cap that goes away as days pass. So at first you will only be able to get to level 45, and then two days later, the cap will expand to level 50, and so on.
As the level increases, you will start to notice that whales get stronger rather quickly, while you get left behind.
This wouldn't be that much of a problem, if it weren't because guild wars happen every few days, they are random. So if your guild doesn't have any whales and you happen to fight against russians, you are gonna get fucked in the ass, kek.
In the end, it becomes frustrating. It's like you are playing for nothing, wasting your time trying to get good loot just to get wrecked by a russian player that dumped 500$ in the game.
As for the social aspect… eh. I got lucky and found a guild full of adults from my country, but I believe the majority of players are underage. We chatted through Telegram and Discord and liked the guild wars, until we got tired of whales wrecking our asses. Eventually, we stopped playing and the guild got closed.
Have you tried Aura Kingdom? I think they released an app, although the original MMORPG is for PC. I have always found someone to talk to there, people are usually friendly, to be honest. Maybe you could check it out. Whales never bothered me in that game.

Debatably I don't really think it's very replayable past a 2nd playthrough because most of the game stays the exact same, with little secrets to find, unless you like stat grinding? As a little girl I played those weird stat sims on newgrounds though so I'm biased towards this type of shit.

I did finish it years ago. I like that the main character is a dumpster fire it's hilarious, and that my choices/skills felt like they mattered.

NTA but I'm also considering Disco Elysium and found that what I've seen in playthroughs has also put me off communism even more, kek. What do you mean by it being a propaganda game? I know that the devs are very outspoken about their views, and they seem to be using DE as a vessel to gently lecture people. Just curious if you knew anything else about its development. Anyway, it's £11.54 in the PlayStation store sale and I'm very tempted to get it. Love detective games, it seems very atmospheric, the skill system looks great and I love RPGs where I can make my character be a raging dickhole to everyone.

I was being hyperbolic for "it has pro-communist themes". Supposedly it's the one ideology in the game that is given relative grace and gravitas compared to how others are depicted - often satirically or with contempt (i.e., moralism) - except with a deep layer of irony. There's a certain character I won't go into because of major spoilers, but the narrative frames him as being a last bastion of conviction or even a bit of a martyr, and…it's ridiculous to me because the only actions he makes in the context to the plot makes him seem like a weak, fickle man to me.

Hah, I also wish I had some juicy dev gossip for you. All I have is that apparently the devs, or at least one, did actually willfully blunt/roast the communist themes to make it more palatable for its otherwise capitalistic market. Oh and considering the lightning in the bottle chaos in this game I am not surprised a lot of drama went down with the studio.

A Short Hike is one of my favorite games in recent years.
Maybe rethink Jade Empire unless you are a huge fan of their old games, like outdated janky games, and love the setting. Heck, I loved KOTOR, but even back then I had trouble getting into JE. I can't even imagine playing it now…

even though another nona suggested wadanohara, i feel like i have to give a fair warning about the maker of the game and the game itself as someone who has read their comics in my edgy phase and played their other games in the past. despite how cute their art is, the maker of the game is into rape and gore and there is a implied rape and mindbreak ending in the game itself too just like with their other games. you might want to steer away if you're sensitive to that.

Nonnas, what games/franchises would you recommend? I am all about worldbuilding, lore or just cute characters. I love it when games have detective/dystopian setting, too (eg DBH, Papers, Please, Not for broadcast, Disco Elysium) Finished DMC5, got obsessed with it (and V…). At least i got Vergil DLC now. Been thinking of trying Resident Evil because of Leon fan-arts on Twitter. I love Yakuza with my whole heart, too… Maybe getting Judgement will be worth it? But i do love me some fanservice and pretty men… so i am just torn between whatever i want.

I'm losing my mind excited about Baldurs Gate 3, especially since they moved the release date up. Tomorrow is the last panel from hell, and I feel like it'll be bittersweet - I've been following its development for year now. Excited to see full release, but a little sad that the whole ride is almost over! They have seemingly not shied away from the relationship/romance aspects of the game, which I am very thankful for.

Does anyone know the game I'm describing?

It was a 2D first person game. You moved by clicking an arrow that would take you to the next screen. It had a pixel art style, mainly blue with a bit of orange. I can't remember the plot at all, but you were moving through some sort of ruin or dungeon and there was combat. I think there was a healing mechanic where you brewed tea. It might have had a sci-fi theme, and there was a girl on the cover. I downloaded it for free off itch.io ages ago, and I've forgotten the title.

Thoughts on FFXVI? I'm around 1/3 of the way through and it hasn't fully held my interest, despite my being a fan of the series since childhood. Will it get better? And was anyone else not shocked at the dramatic reveal of Clive being Joshua's killer?

No, the stories as generic as you think it is. There's a point where I thought the story would be interesting and throw me in for a loop, but it went the most predictable way ever.

I heard it had pretty bad issues on older models. I played on n3ds and still got frame rate drops in doubles from time to time. Was that why they cut the 3d option or did they realize no one used it?

I fucking hate modern RPGs. I was playing D:OS2 the other day, and all dialogue in that game is "look at how verbose and in your face I am." Every fucking character has to have at least one zinger prepared, but also a needlessly tragic backstory.
And don't get me started on the actual gameplay. It's made to feel lime an immmersive sim, where you can do whatever you want if you're creative, but you're really forced to dance by the dev's tune; make the bad guy stand on colored surfaces, and do every side quest so you're not underleveled in the fight at the end of each act. Same goes for hoarding gear, which is leveled like in an MMO, with 100% random bonuses, and becomes obsolete after 2 hours of game play.
It really puts things into perspective when widely acclaimed games like these are considerably worse than the dumpster fire that the Pathfinder games were.

I get it for remasters and remakes if the devs want the original fans to play them decades later, sometimes you just want to replay a game just to waste time and for nostalgia's sake. In JRPGs I have to admit I'm sick of random encounters with excessive rates. If I could have played SMT3 when it got released on the PS2 I wouldn't have minded but I never finished the remaster because by now it's exhausting. A lot of games have a terrible balance between their random encounter rates, how fast battles can be, and the exp you get after a battle too.

I don't wanna sound like "that guy", but once you get comfortable with how the game works and you get further, the lack of saves isn't as much as a hinderance as when you first start learning how to play. Without giving away too much you may get access to a few beds that you can save in without worrying about the coin flip. There's lots of ways to bend this game to your will, but discovering how to do that is half the fun.

It's only an issue if you want to do the savage raids or the ultimate fights with a group, other than that you can simply ignore them and move on, it won't affect your experience overall. Annoying players are a thing in every mmo, but I feel XIV is very casual and you don't need to interact with others as much to be honest.

So I went out and checked Fear and Hunger characters to see if they are going to interest me in playing it. Seen that the first one has only one female playable option and three male ones, typical I guess. So I checked the second one and apparently it has a troon?? And at least two characters are into said troon? Honestly gives me bad vibes. The combo of indie game + dark themes + troon character… Ugh, why do I feel it's the developer's self insert or something?

Lol nona I did the same. Looked up the wiki to gauge interest and I got annoyed to find out Marina is a trans identified male. If you read his backstory it's like a depressing and macabre version of Bridget's, so it makes even less sense for him to want to stay trans.
If the dev is not a troon already he (I'm assuming he's a man after all the amounts of dicks I've seen) he will troon out soon: he said Marina his favorite character and that's a huge red flag.
There are also trannisms in the (pretty awesome) art direction, like the deranged goddess of fertility sporting phalluses in her design instead of just vulvas.

The games doesn't seem bad aside from these scrotey things. Personally I won't play them because they look too bleak for my tastes.

The developer is a man who's name is "orange" or some shit. I know someone who was in the fear and hunger discord since three years ago, and while I don't think the developer is a troon he has a big fetish for them, and he has a very weird relationship with another developer who is a dude who is much younger than him. I don't have any specific screenshots or anything, but this shit I've heard from the person who was in the discord, the fear and hunger creators are freaks, unfortunately. Pretty usual from indie devs unfortunately, as someone who does a lot of indie shit myself.

I don't know anything and I don't really care about the dev being a weirdo behind the scenes, Fear & Hunger Termina is easily one of the most interesting games I've played in a long, long while. Love the oppresive atmosphere, the creatures designs and all the mystery. You have plenty of great playable female characters there (Abella, Karin, Olivia), you would be seriously missing out if you don't give in a shot just because Marina exists. My first playthrough had me go in completely blind, she wasn't part of my team, didn't realize there's any troon backstory until I went to check out the community. Also given the game's story and how it is constructed I honestly can't imagine other characters being into her being a big part of it or being portrayed as "normal feelings" since nothing in this game is normal; spoiler for non playable character coming in later in the game I know about Samarie and her obsession is hardly something i'd consider romantic

Paralives is gonna suck. The building and decorating will be great because of Unity engine. If you look at other games that are made in Unity (eg. Two Point Campus/Hospital) that also have building capabilities, Paralives have the exact same ones, maybe just a bit more in-depth. Unity engine and the artists are 100% carrying this game. So far we have seen ZERO gameplay footage. It is just all optics. Their marketing tactics are great and everyone is eating it up. If you even ASK for gameplay footage and you express concern towards not having seen any, their fanbase will eat you whole and accuse you of being a horrible person because "they're such a small team and you shouldn't pressure them". I don't think the dude who is making this could get an in-depth communication system going like we've seen in the Sims 2. And i'm not even sure how deep you could go with that because of Unity. Unity engine also comes with restrictions, as do all engines, which is why it is always smarter to build your own engine so you can tune it to your needs. I think he is very aware of this, which is why they are pushing the building so hard when releasing tiny snippets of what is possible in their game. They probably think that as long as the building aspect of the game is great, most people will forgive shitty and lifeless gameplay mechanics. Life By You will have the same problems (also made in Unity). And don't even get me started on how the characters look so horribly ugly in both games. How is that even possible in todays age? Just go on Fiverr and you will find dozens of artists who could come up with something better. I'm absolutely devastated by the realization that i will never get to see a great Sim game that is a mix of the Sims 2 and 3 with modern graphics in my life time and it sucks.

Kek same. I love it so far, even all the little tidbits mixed into the levels and cutscenes.

Sorry, I didn't formulate it properly, I meant getting used to the playstyle rather than levels being easy. I don't play that many PC games and when I do, I tend to use the arrows. You're able to use them in the menu of HLM 1, so not being able to do it in the game too confused me.
But after playing a few more levels, it's exactly how you said! Basically just rushing in, memorizing the area and developing a system based on it. My favorite is to just lure them all to a spot with gunshots, like a true newbie kek.
I only just finshed the level with the restaurant/axe/the janitors/the black mobster on the toilet. But my least favourite so far was the level with the explosive room, purely because of the last two mobsters behind the barricades. I died so many fucking times trying to get them with machine guns.

I don't follow Bungie, or D2 game news updates at all, but the stuff found it's way onto my twitter tl anyway–my fault for browsing the 'For You' tab looking for art kek. Anyway, it was some D2 news account throwing a fit and denouncing Bungie, so I got curious, read up on the actual Bungie article, then checked the subreddit because it had been a while and I was interested to see how they were taking it. Low and behold, reddit scrotes continue to scrote. That's what I get for having expectations, I guess!
I dunno, it's irritating to see how the fandom culture around D2 still hasn't improved despite–or in spite of–how well the game is apparently doing and I let my temper get the best of me. Apologies! The reddit D2 bellyachers still deserve all their agony, though ♥

Kek I was scared of him in the beginning, but that was part of the fun for me. You can hear his footsteps pretty clearly plus I think there is a music that plays when he is close by. He is pretty scary in your first playthrough but once you get how he works it's pretty silly. Alternatively, you can shoot him with a magnum in the head and he will stay on his knees, though I don't recommend wasting ammo on him, just lure him to open spaces and go around him. RPD safe rooms, the STARS room and the clocktower are safe for you to hide from him. He doesn't follow you beyond the RPD. Hope this helps, I know it's scary at first but that's some of the fun of it. He is the scariest thing in the game imo.

Drafted up a backlog list of games I have to complete and a few old ones I want to revisit. Thought it didn't look too bad, but wanted more data, so I went to HowLongToBeat to calculate an estimate time it will take me for each game and then added them all up and got 2434 hours. If I give myself a generous average of two hours playtime per day (and that is very generous and quite frankly ambitious with twins on the way) that means I need roughly 3 years and 4 months to get through this backlog, which feels… paralysing, lol.

The Xeno-FF7 thing is just an Easter egg, they aren't actually connected. The various Xeno series aren't even really connected to each other much beyond similar themes and some vague ideas of the original creator that it's all in the same universe that I don't think is really evident in the games.

I was thinking more about how Xenogears was proposed as FF7 at Squaresoft and other devs refused to make it an FF game because the story was too dark or complicated. I only played Xenoblade 1 and 2 so far and the second game reminded me a lot of FF in general, with Jin being Cloud and Sephiroth's love child when it comes to his character design, voice actor in Japanese, backstory, etc., or Amalthus being basically Seymour if he were well-written and actually intimidating.

I have no idea why they went with this art style for the remake when the original game's graphics went for realism and weren't even slightly anime. It's like the artist wasn't talented enough to imitate the original's art style so they went for anime style instead.

The graphics were limited at the time, but you can see in my screen shot how the original game tried to give the mc a realistic face.

I give up. I think I broke the game. Stats don't work anymore so the MC has a persona with a higher agility than Haru BUT Haru decided to always act before him after I lost too many times, which makes my strategy impossible to do anymore. The RNG is fucked too because almost all the characters get hit with status effects and crits ecery single turns. I'm not even underleveled I don't get it.

The anime disney face really doesn't suit the game. The artist they got pretty much only draws naked sexy girls with the same face, a terrible pick for this. The cover art is full of beginner's art mistakes, I have no hope for this. There is a troon on the team as well.

I just beat the boss. I put the game on "easy" and I don't think it changes stats or damage input during battle? It felt just as difficult but I managed to not misclick anywhere this time and not have my characters get killed by getting one or two critical hits in the face, I can't believe that was the real issue all along. I think the devs were doing crack when they came up with that boss fight because I checked and it seems it's way easier in the original game.

NTAYRT but I'm enjoying what little I've seen of the romances. Just got past Act 1 because I've been taking my time. Since all the companions are bisexual, they all have the potential to be attracted to you, which is only really a problem if you end up getting high approval for all of them. Even then, not every character wants to sleep with you immediately despite what some people are pushing.

The romances are generally slow burn, and Astarion and Lae'zel are the only ones you can sleep with immediately (someone correct me if I'm wrong), but their actual romances develop a lot slower from what I'm seeing. They're more of the fuck first, romance later type. With the other characters, though, you can flirt with them a lot, but they won't sleep with you just yet.

Generally though, people are over-exaggerating the horniness, I think. If you don't want someone flirting with you, you can just tell them that. There are options made for that exact reason. And some of the stuff that people are saying are romantic feel more platonic to me.

No. 314393

Yeah it's exactly as other anon says, the game gives you a lot of freedom in how you interact with the world and people in it; if you won't flirt with companions they won't be horny for your character either.

This is a game rated M, all characters are physically mature adults, the game lets you disable nudity. There is no pornification of women, no boob size slider and you can make the men wear any clothes you can make women wear.

It's only hard to convey if you're very incompetent or if you want to insert your fanfic to "improve" the original work.

>cringey translators trying to make a joke more localized and failing.

They often do that to replace completely normal, neutral and serious lines though. When a serious or dramatic scene happens and suddenly a character says a sarcastic joke that's OOC and would make Joss Whedon himself cringe it ruins the entire scene. Best case scenario you have a comedic scene where the characters talk naturally and argue without making pop culture references with each other but the localizers will explain the joke, will make the characters say something very unfunny instead and will make it unrelated to what's going on onscreen. I've seen some screenshots of the Kiseki games and it's amazing how unfunny American localizers are. I also forgot to mention MGS1 vs MGS2 localization and how the guy who did it for MGS1 changed a lot of small things to make it more serious or make it seem more like he personally would imagine a mid 30s fed up soldier being used as a pawn to the point where some players found MGS2 weird in comparison, and Kojima was really annoyed at this and iirc he told the localizer to not randomly change shit next time. But then again I wanted to give more recent examples.

>99% of these things didn't make people care in the west

Because many people don't even know there's a huge difference between the original and the butchered localization.

tldr; I don't get how the exact same people praising the genital customization and bestiality in that new Western RPG are the exact same one praising wholesome gay pairings or entire plot points and character development being changed or censored in other games. It's pure nonsense. And yes it's the exact same people because they're always the same one acting as influencers online or are game journalists.

When a main character says directly contradicting things in both scripts to the point the players think the character is an actual schizo or that two different teams of writers wrote him without consulting each other, you know there's a massive issue with the localization.

That's the thing: Xander/Marx' inconsistent characterization is part of Fates' shitty original script. The story is dogshit in japanese too, I have no idea how you can believe otherwise when we have documentation and multiple people who read both scripts confirmed it. Hell I played the awful Fates' fantranslation and it's the same story as the Treehouse/NOA version, just with bad and stilted dialogue.

Treehouse also did not touch Marx' supports. He is a noble big brother in the original ones and it still clashes with how he's Garon's lapdog through most of the routes' main stories.
The characters who got changed are mainly Effie, Niles/Zero and Soleil. The rest of the changes are mostly certain supports like Saizo/Beruka, Silas/Hana and Kagero/Azama.


You could easily bring up these complaints instead: Effie turned from a sweet powerhouse to a roided muscle girl, Niles' dark sadism and perversion being basically gutted from the game, Soleil turning down male love interests in her S supports except for Forrest, Forrest being a little bitch in his join chapter, various faux feminist changes to many small details, the complete removal of sexy swimsuits and of the crappy petting minigame…
It was an awful localization that removed plenty of content without replacing it with anything. But the main script is the only thing it did right, it perfectly translates the original's garbage story. Treehouse did many things wrong but Fates' story is all Intelligent System's fault.

Xander barely opposes his father. He seems like a schizo in European languages because American localizers didn't like that he was a coward, a little bitch and had massive daddy issues that would make Freud roll in his grave. He spends the whole game knowing that Garon is fucked in the head, that he's a terrible ruler and that something's wrong with him because he wasn't like that years ago, and yet he willingly obeys his father no matter what because that's his duty as his son and as the heir. All of this is consistent, because the only time in Conquest when he decides to act is when it turns out that Garon was dead all along and was zombified by another entity. Same shit in the shitty DLC route when he hears Garon saying stupid shit that makes it obvious he's not the actual Garon. Otherwise he would have let him slaughter more people while thinking "man, my dad sucks, too bad I'm his son I guess."

Meanwhile in English he's always like "muh little princess, father is a terrible man! but I'll let him do whatever he wants because uhhh I'm a retard! Oh but no I think he didn't do anything wrong now! Oh btw little princess uwu do you remember the 20 times I told you dad was evil and we can't do anything against him? Well if you were wrong about him being possessed by something else while mass murdering people then I'll kill you bitch!" Keep in mind that in the scene in English when he says he'll kill you for being a traitor or whatever right before you fight Garon transformed as a monster in the throne room, in Japanese he just says there will be consequences against the MC if the MC is wrong not because he wants to, but because the MC needs evidence before making this kind of accusations. Don't even get me started on the long speech he does about justice that's so ooc it's hilarious. In the og he just says there's no justice, life is unfair and good people die all the time and that's it, he keeps it short. He's noble while being much more of a anti-hero.

I'm not getting a PS5 because it's not in my budget but I checked some FF16 playthrough and it's hilarious how Dion reminds me of what the localizers tried to make Xander into. They're actually opposites. It's just a reference if you're curious or want to play that game someday. Anyway you can dislike Fates' story for being badly written but blame the right people over this. I could imagine people disliking the story as it should have been presented in the first place as well but many people would have complained way less over it being inconsistent imo. Maybe they would have complained about it being boring or melodramatic instead.

>Treehouse also did not touch Marx' supports.

They did, but way less than in the main story. I do remember some minor changes like him being slightly less explicit when he basically tells Nyx he's suicidal after executing some unnamed siblings who tried to assassinate him and others. And that's relevant because he commits suicide by cop in Birthright and you're supposed to see how it all comes together in either scene depending on which route you played first. Or there's his supports with Charlotte where he says he never imagined finding love and getting married to her and she's like "omg are you saying you're actually gay?". That's obviously less impactful than what I said earlier.

>You could easily bring up these complaints instead

I agree with all you said but didn't have time when I made my first post.

>the complete removal of sexy swimsuits

That one pissed me off so much because I played a lot against people in uni thanks to the streetpass feature and these items actually increased stats during multiplayer battles.

After over three months after it's release, I finished most of the main story in Tears of The Kingdom. I take this game as slow as possible because for me there is only one first impression and I want to make it as special as possible. I already adored BOTW but TOTK improved so much! I'm especially happy that the story is somehow more complex than in BOTW, so I'm really excited about the ending. Ngl I teared up a bit when I collected all dragon tears. Even when I knew who the white dragon was, the transformation scene and the last shed tear with the flowers really touched me. The Gerudo Temple was the absolute best imo, bc it was the perfect fusion between old and new Zelda games. I still have to do some main story quests and explore the rest of the depths and finally beat some Gleeoks. I'm already over 200 hours in and I think I will beat my botw score of 285 hours. I will continue to take it slowly bc god knows for how long we have to wait for a new zelda game after that, even when I really, really, really want to know how the story ends.

I also like to mention that ganondorf's design in this game is just top tier.

I don't get it everytime I see someone saying that FF16 is just like GOT because I have never watched that show, I just know some vague things about it. I'm watching a playthrough of FF16 because no PS5 for me so everytime characters talk about war and politics and betraying a country and its people for another I just think that well, you know, it's the typical fantasy plot you'd find in a JRPG, like in other FF games or in FE games, but in HD. I haven't see people complaining about it, they're just like "oh it's just like in GOT" during some cutscenes. Like at that point I assume that if FF2 were an HD game with the exact same plot but more detailed cutscenes and dialogs (for example if they took some of the canon stuff from that super old novel and put it in the game) people would say the exact same thing. I don't think you'd have to add any sex scene in it, just keep the scene where Firion is seduced by the fake princess and nearly gets stabbed and you'd have the same comments about it.

I think that might be a bit of an overreaction, boob sliders primarily exist in more nsfw games (the ones that let you go from tiny to massive) and like most of the ones I've seen in modern gaming don't let you go to either extremes just like B-D (not emoji). Not really hitting where I lie either but in every game I can get breasts my size it's jiggle physic simulator.
If we really look at it, there isn't much room for body customisation at all, can't be fat, can't be rail thin, but you must have a bangin' bod not regular person bod. It's actually a lot less in depth than I imagined, I spent more time on the cyberpunk one.
The genitalia is only for a small amount of people who aren't going to use Male normal or Female normal but it gets them praise so why not. Even though a character definitely called mine a lady lmao.

If you get mad at him for not telling you he basically shrugs it off and is like "I wanted you and that's why I didn't tell you" without even showing any remorse.

Laezel is at least funny and she claps ass and has a lot of gap moe, obviously acquired taste.

I want to move to my own place first, I have a tiny TV so I will most likely replace it so while I do have the money for a PS5 and some games right now is not the good time.

>FF15 and FF7 remake (I want the other FF remasters on the Switch because I like playing on handhelds a lot more)
>Resident Evil 2, 3 and 4 remakes
>DMC5, and maybe get the previous games as well since my PS2 is dead

What else would you suggest, based on your own personal preferences?

Nope. I love the version they went with, her monolids are adorable. She already has a huge, buff body so giving her a masculine face as well would not have fit her sweet personality in my opinion.

I think SH only had English voice acting because the characters were modeled with their voice actors. This was one of the reasons why people didn’t like it getting re-recorded, because it was like they replaced actors and actresses that performed in a specific style with modern anime VAs.

The old Resident Evils also only had English voice acting because the games took place in America, so Capcom wanted it in English.

Holy shit can Gale leave me ALONE already? I can't believe this middle aged incel has been chasing me down nonstop even though I'm in a relationship with Astarion and have rejected him every single time he tried to start something. I never even selected any nice options again after the second time it happened. During the Tiefling party I rejected him to sleep with Astarion, then I rejected him during the Weave thing, then rejected him again when he compared me to his cat. Now he invited me to go hang out under the stars and tried to bang me (I quick saved beforehand because I could tell this is where it was going). And every single time his ass guilt trips me for not being into him.
He must be bugged, right? There's no way it's intended for him to still thirst for Tav even after getting turned down so many times. I haven't even had him in my party for a good 10 hours of playtime now and he's still probably secretly sniffing my bedroll whenever I leave camp. Those magical boots I fed him must have been aphrodisiacs or something.

I personally really liked Gale's romance. He's very cute and dorky and my heart melts at some of his dialogue with how much he adores you. All companions have very good voice acting but Gale's voice especially is just soothing to listen to. (A shame Wyll got a new actor, I liked how much warmth radiated off his old voice.) Lae'zel and Jaheira were very fun to have as companions and are also my favorites.

I do think his love for honey and carving ducks is endearing and I really like the ''scary intimidating giant who is actually very soft and sweet'' trope, and his design and voice actor is so good too! but after you finish up his quests, he begins to talk about how he views sex, relationships and all it really soured his character for me from that point on. Maybe I'm not a real fan of how sexual he is and my excitement just deflating instantly. (Which i guess is weirdly hypocritical of me to feel since I do love Astarion, and Zevran in DAO who are both very sexual elves too. so idk)

I came here just to complain about the armband kek
All the previous trailers showed the original one, I wonder if it was a late change… The new ones are an eyesore, they just occupy too much visual space on the dark outfits, the original armbands gave the perfect amount of accent color. I usually play with costumes so isn't like I will see them much, but it sucks that they will get slapped on every official art and merch and throw off the whole color balance.
That aside, I'm super excited for everything else they have shown, Aigis and MC look gorgeous.

They're starting to add Denuvo to Switch, a console that already struggles to run games. Looks like my current one will be their last console I will buy, I'm having more fun with old NDS games than with recent Switch ones anyways.
I have only owned Nintendo consoles because no money, so that's pretty much all I know. But for the past years I have been findind out more 3rd party/Sony games I love, so I think I will be fine with just a PS5, I'm not gonna pay for a half-assed console that won't be able to run stuff.
Ironically, this will make me start pirating the Nintendo games I want when I get a fuctional PC.

Out all the Switch games I got, the Persona and Kirby ones are the only ones that run perfectly (with an honorable mention to AITSF) and the Persona games are just ports from old generations.

No. 317288

I don't think I ever had any framerate issue except for one very specific boss fight in Bayonetta 1 (the golem in one of the last chapters before you reach the top of the skyscraper) and in ACNH like 2 or 3 times only in a specific part of my island where I put way too much furniture. And in Bayonetta 1 it seems to be because of the game itself given that you fight the same enemy earlier and that never caused framerate issues with my Switch. It could come from whether you play on your TV or in portable mode because as I said I always played in portable mode and never had issues with SMT5 for instance but I've seen a lot of people complaining about framerate issues with that game and every single one of them played on TV. I have no clue how that works, I wouldn't be surprised if I were just very lucky. I also never had any issues with a drifting joycon but my little sister's Switch was affected before I even bought mine, but it's not exactly the same model. She bought the first model second hand with a few games and I have the one that was released with a better battery.

What the fuck is going on with the FF16 localization I'm so confused:
>script written in Japanese first
>translated into English with a lot of small things changed, removed or added
>Japanese script is slightly changed to reflect that I guess the writers were inspired by the English speaking localizers so they worked together
>dubbed in English first, then in Japanese, then in other languages
>localized in Arabic but game banned in Saudi Arabia and maybe other Arabic speaking countries because it has a plot-relevant gay couple tenderly kissing in one scene
>French translation is basically half from the Japanese script and half from the English one and adds their own lines Dion and Terrence are even more sappy than usual kek
>half of the characters in French sound like some bad anime, GTO and FMA 2003 had much better dubs two decades ago, the rest sounds ok
>Torgal is now Targol(?), probably to not be sued by the publishing company that hold the rights to Thorgal, some Belgian comics
>Olivier becomes Octavien or some shit even though Olivier is some basic bitch male name, everyone here knows at listen a dozen of Olivier
>Dion is still Dion despite 99.999% of French speakers thinking about Céline Dion when seeing that name, Benedikta still has her name even though 99% of us would think of the mayonnaise brand when hearing her name
>but Olivier can't stay Olivier because ??? and he sounds retarded while he sounds smug as fuck in other languages

Persona anons I want your opinions. I'm playing P3P and I was originally planning on romancing Akihiko but I ended up starting a relationship with Ryoji.

You can date both. FeMC gets 0 punishment for dating more than one person, so it's ok.
Ryoji is my favorite male romance with FeMC, but that depends on your personal taste. Being honest all her romances (except for the kid) are great, she's the only Persona MC where these routes feel genuine imo.

No. 318027

>>318021
Even her platonic friendship with Junpei feels more genuine than when you play as the male MC. They really messed up by not giving the main guys social links in the original game, but it seems there will be something added to the remake to compensate for that, since the FEMC won't be in it.

No. 318053

Stupid question about ACNH because I'm not playing it anymore: if I delete the data for the updates in my Switch so I can download more updates/patches or DLCS instead for other games will that create issues for my save file in general or will I be able to replay it just fine if I ever change my mind and download the big updates again later? Because I have other games that had huge patches on top of having DLCs that have nearly as much content as the base game.

No. 318061

>>318053
Not sure aboout ACNH since I have never done it with that game, but for ACNL and other ones with big updates you can play with no problems as long as you re-download everything (without the updates the game acts as if you have never started a savefile, but everything shows up fine when you download them again)

No. 318066

>>318061
It's been so long since I played ACNL that I forgot there was an update. I'm not sure it's going to work the same way in ACNH because if you play on the 3DS with physical copies the save files are stored in the cartridges themselves but if you play on the Switch your save files are always stored in the console itself or the SD memory card if you added one. And Nintendo won't even let us save anything on the cloud even with a paid subscription so I'm worried I could lose everything.

I'm enjoying Fear & Hunger but the fandom is really annoying. No offence to nonas who posted about F&F here but I find the sluttification of Cahara and all the memes obnoxious, especially since he's a fan favorite among TIFs. I like that he's objectified but the way people go about it is so porny and misogynistic (picrel with the joke being that he's pretty much a girl) and I can't help but feel like he wouldn't get the feminization treatment if his character wasn't the one getting raped so much. He's also getting the 'golden retriever bf' treatment (another meme I absolutely hate) and it's so off putting to me lol.
I really like the atmosphere and the story but tbh it's not that groundbreaking. I mean I still think it's very good but people are acting like no one's ever done anything like that. I think the lore is not all that original and obviously inspired by other media and religions which isn't a bad thing. I think the gameplay and the visuals are much more interesting than the lore.

Agreed. I think the best part about the game is not because it's "edgy", but because the gameplay is enriching. I like how it keeps making you want to do one more run to see what you can change the next time. I think people focus on the wrong things when praising the game. And I agree that I'm not too fond of how people treat Cahara. I feel like there's a commentary to be made on how people feminize the one who gets assaulted the most in the game, but I'm too stupid to think of it right now. D'Arce is great.

I just beat it a few hours ago. It's a good choice imo because the tutorial is long and detailed so you will know what to do once you get more freedom. The story is pretty good imo, but it's clearly divided in several arcs and some of them in the middle annoyed me because they felt slow and boring but that's subjective and based on how this part of the game is as slow as in P3 and P4. You'll have deadlines to look out for so don't hesitate to make several save files as you go further into the game in case you miss them but that's unlikely to happen.

I don't like how the trailer is only focused on combat. The first Bloodlines is notorious for having shit combat system but the social/roleplay elements are what makes it so beloved. Also what's with the music? So melodramatic, again what >>319225 said. The first game's charm laid in its sense of comedy and how it didn't take itself seriously.

Okay what’s up with scrotes losing their shit about how "disappointing" ff16 is? I haven’t played it yet but it reminds me of the unhinged outrage that went on for years about ff15 (which was blown out of proportion, they were just mad that the game was female gazey). If the ff16 side quests suck and ruin the pacing of the game to the point of the game being ruined, then why don’t they just ignore it? Like, just don’t do the side quests then??

Just based on the music in the trailer they don't get it. Too serious, no style, ugly in a bland HD way, par for the course with V5 so far. Who is their target audience? Because it's definitely not fans of VTMB. I'm guessing they're trying to appeal to the wider tt/rpg crowd with this one. It's nice to see they finally figured out what they want the story to be, I guess. Hopefully the modding community will jump in and try to unfuck it soon after release, if it does actually get released and we don't get a repeat of what happened the first time they announced.

I hate it so much when English speaking voice actors will not stfu and will interact with fans all the time like. Stay in your lane. Shut the fuck up. I found it annoying as hell when FE3H got popular and English speaking fans would quote and repost the voice actors' bs and the voice actors will play along but it's even worse with FF16 right now because the English dub was recorded first and the fans for some reason believed that means the English fanfiction is the original script so now they're like "LMFAOOO ROFL LOL DION'S BRITISH VOICE ACTOR SAID FUCK AND SAID HE LIKES SHIN KAMEN RIDER OMG I CANT" or "nooo omg omg Clive's voice actor looks up his name and his character's name all the time so he must have seen my hardcore Clive/Jill pornographic art omg!!1!

God same, they replaced the whole eng cast for the P3 remake & some of them are so annoying. I only play with the original voices because 2 of the VAs are very dear to me, so I couldn't care less about the eng ones. I'm tired of seeing their faces and forced tweets they make so people draw them with the actual characters.

In general, I dislike how the western side of everything (be it VAs or writters) interact with the fanbase so much, I feel there should be a healthy distance between both, they're workers not influencers who need constant advertising. Like you said, it's specially bad because sometimes these interactions force writters to make story changes and all.

No. 319874

I'm not looking forward to the P3 remake at all because of the game itself, I can replay P3P whenever I want anyway even though I have the PSP version with only the mediocre English voices, but as soon as I knew the dub would be made by a new cast I was sure this would happen. It's so tiring. At least Atlus doesn't butcher their localizations too much besides making characters who call each by their last names in Japanese call each other by their first names in English, and hopefully the P3 remake won't be butchered either but given the kind of new fans they've attracted who knows.

There's a cutesy mobile game about cookies or some shit that's popular with girls in general, including fujoshi, and I saw one of the voice actors who's a gay guy sperging about fujoshi and yaoi being problematic (you know, his audience) and how he wants to voice characters from "queer" anime… by posting promotional pictures of yaoi like Given, made by fujoshi. Like even if you dislike yaoi and fujoshi you can see how he's a liability for the devs at the very least.

Statements like this always seem out of touch to me. Eastern male seiyuus/actors can maintain jobs even if they're abusers, racist, misogynistic, etc. It's funny how the criteria for what's considered an "annoying va" to the west is based on their opinions on fictional content. It could be blamed on people not understanding other languages like Japanese, but different parts of the world have their own baggage. Sometimes, it's even worse.

Your post is unrelated to my initial point. My first post was about how Western voice actors of Japanese games like to push their shitty "memes" and jokes and headcanons on Western fans as if we fucking cared because they didn't make the games. I'm clearly not talking about pieces of shit like Takahito Sakurai who cheated on his wife AND his mistresses or Tatsuhisa Suzuki cheating on his much more famous wife with a crazy fangirl and attempting suicide because it costed him roles and he got harassed for being a cheater because they're actual scandals and unrelated to their jobs.

>Eastern male seiyuus/actors can maintain jobs even if they're abusers, racist, misogynistic, etc.

Depends on a lot of things, regardless of fame, if they're suspected of taking drugs with no proof their entire lives are over (applies to literally everyone there), if they're cheaters it depends on if it's a normal affair or if they're even more heinous than usual, then you have cases like the guy who voices Otoya harassing a new seiyuu when doing another role and getting away with it somehow, then you have Tsudaken apologizing to his fangirls for… being happily married and having kids and raising his kids with his wife. But again, completely unrelated to my initial point.

Yeah I was dissapointed with the remake as well when I saw it wasn't a complete version (and my heart breaks a little everytime I see a cool new art or scene and remember FeMC won't have one as well), but I can't like, P3 is a game very close to me and I love what we have seen of the remake so far. Per usual Atlus seems to refuse opening EU preorders though, so I don't know if I will be able to get it on release kek.

Oh god, are you talking about Cookie Run? I used to love it, but due to my phone being from 2016 it stoped supporting the game shortly after CR Kingdom released. The fandom was unbearable back them, but from the little I have seen it seems nowadays is x10 worse.
Laughting at that gay guy, the company just hires anybody huh…. I remember there were 2 canon lesbian characters, which is fine, but they seem to go full-on woke now and do anything to appeal that crowd since they give them money, some months ago I saw on a thread they included made-up pronouns on the Spanish translation for "non-binary" cookies.

My first language isn't English and I'm playing Japanese video games. Which language should I pick? The original Japanese voices with the original scripts? Or the English dub made for Anglophones with a different script that makes some scenes and characters nonsensical? Be for real it's not a matter of being a weeb it's a matter of wanting the original product. If someone invited me to watch American movies I'd watch them in English, and I always go to the same theater because they show movies with their original voices more often than the theaters close to my place. If I decided to rewatch that one Spanish show that was super popular when I was in middle about young adults in a dance school because of nostalgia I'd watch with the actors' actual voices and French subtitles, etc. Why would it be different for JRPGs? I'm always sick of hearing Japanese lines that don't match subtitles when playing video games and I do double takes all the time. Concerning FF16, it's dubbed in French so I could pick that option but I was curious before getting the game and checked it online and it sounds super weird. Not bad at all but it gave me the same vibes as watching GTO or Excel Saga on Canal+ after school idk how to describe it. I only evee see Anglophones saying this kind of shit, never nerdy French speakers or German speakers or Italian speakers who are more than happy with watching movies and TV shows or playing video games in their original languages with subtitles.

>I get that, but in my opinion if you engage in a lot of media from a country, its always best to try and learn that language.
That's precisely why I worked hard in school to learn English but there are way more resources to learn that language and it's a mandatory class as soon as you start middle school here. I'm far from fluent but I know enough Japanese to notice when the subtitles don't match with the actual dialogues. I'm good enough to have simple conversations with Japanese people face to face, I just need to learn more words but since I graduated university I forgot a lot of words from lack of practice and I don't have enough time to keep learning on my own. The issue is that not all games let you choose between languages and it's very frustrating, even though that's not an issue anymore for recent games. Replaying games from the PS2 era and being stuck with half of the characters being voiced by Yuri Lowenthal or Troy Baker is pure torture kek, the mere fact that I remember their names despite not being American is actually alarming by itself. It gets so bad when you have two characters having a lot of scenes together being voiced by the exact same guy for no reason.

Troy baker haunts me kek, he was in everything back then. Especially American games. If you had a stereotypical white male protagonist, I bet you 99% it was going to be voiced by him.

Nona I agree with you that FF16's English voice cast is annoying (especially Clive's VA) but "badly translated" is hilarious for many reasons, but especially considering how integral the localization director was to the development of the game and how Yoshi-P has praised the ENG version highly encouraging JP players to give the game in English a try after their first play through. This isn't some outsourced to underpaid contractors localization. It's very solidly written to some of the highest degree of quality I've seen in a translated work, and the dub itself is excellent, obnoxious cast aside. I can understand not liking the localized flavour in the form of British accents and dialogue, but it doesn't make it inherently bad, I'd argue it works to aid the European inspired flavour of the game. If you think it's bad because it's not a literal one-to-one, god help you. Just learn Japanese.

I've seen what that same guy did for FF14 and I think it's safe to assume he's being weird for changing a lot of lines for no reason whatsoever, making characters speak way more formally than they usually do or even like Shakespeare rose from his grave and got hired by Square Enix, making characters sounding sarcastic or bitchy instead of enthusiastic or just neutral which makes the characters seem very different. A friend of mine is very into FF14 and showed me a bunch of cutscenes and in Japanese, English and French and basically all the languages/localizations are similar to each other except for the English localization which makes shit up all the time. I'm talking about replacing one line with one entire paragraph, or young looking female characters speaking like young adults in all the languages and yelling like a chainsmoking grandma in English (I think it was a fairy who spoke like that, it was so bad I laughed for like 5min straight). To be fair it's not nearly as bad as when I started FF5 in English and could barely play because some of the characters had pirate accents and it was unreadable so I dropped it early.

>highly encouraging JP players to give the game in English a try after their first play through.

I don't think I've seen any of them do that. At most they retweet scenes in English with "these lines are different it's weird/funny/interesting!"

Good looking list so far, makes me smile to see so many games I love on it already. I would personally add:
>Theatrythm, Rhythm Heaven, Rhythm Thief & The Emperor's Treasure, Nintendogs, Bratz: Rock Angelz, Bratz: Forever Diamondz (those were the only two Bratz games I played, idk how the other ones are), Picross, Yoshi games, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, Horizon Zero Dawn, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls Online [MMO], Cities Skylines (producer and lead designer are women, most streamers are women), and Control [2019]
+1 to Bloodborne but with the disclaimer that it's autistically difficult. You wouldn't think from first appearances that it has a sizable female fandom but it does.
If you're recommending Yakuza, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology might be a good fit too. A little hesitant because there is some scrotey stuff included in one of the DLCs [Bathing in Mana] (not as severe as Yakuza has) but I feel the DLC balances it out with pandering equally to women too. The original is a bit too grindy for my tastes but I feel the remake + DLC makes the pace perfect. I just don't have the patience or time for the grinding that old RPGs expected out of you.
Also you might want to put a note that the Harvest Moon games changed to being called Story of Seasons around 2013. Picrel is the newer remake of the old Harvest Moon: Wonderful Life + Another Wonderful Life combined.
The newer Natsume games without Marvelous Inc's involvement that are under the Harvest Moon name are NOT like the old Harvest Moon games. They're awful.

Here's where I'm at thus far! I wasn't sure where to place some of the games recommended or if some of the games recommended were actually popular with female players (or just troons) but I'm definitely up for adjustments!

Also added a few feminine recommendations of my own

It's a nice list so far nonna. The only thing I would say is I might separate the BL (Fujo) games from the otome (yume) games. Even though I like both kinds of games, I know a lot of other people don't. Coincidentally, it seems most BL ones are NSFW and most otome games are sfw.

Sort of obscure, but in a similar vein: Cute Knight! I loved it as a kid.

solid list. i also want to suggest Smushi Come Home, Hogwarts Legacy, and Affogato. don't think smushi is worth the price for its length and content so maybe only discount, but it's cute enough.

>I might separate the BL (Fujo) games from the otome (yume) games
I considered that but there's only one well known nsfw otome game and I just put in one of my favorites for the sfw category (since most BLVNs are nsfw) so I think it's easier to just put it as joseimuke and split it into nsfw and sfw
It's possible I'll change my mind on this, but I also think it's a bit easier to just write 'nsfw' joseimuke games.

Definitely adding Hogwarts Legacy, I just keep forgetting to put it in haha.

Not sure. They said it was this year but I don't have hope for that. Multiplayer too, I wanna play with my friends. The cosmetics aren't worth it but they lucked out cause the Disney fandom are insane whales.

okami, pikmin, most sonic games, oneshot, the dog island, little big planet, petz dogz 2, pony friends, zoo tycoon, maplestory, neopets, mario kart, splatoon, minecraft, wolfquest, snacko (not released yet but it looks promising). I haven't played it myself but one of the persona games (persona 3 iirc) has a playable female mc that you can romance the guys as so maybe that too. there's a lot of women who like resident evil games because leon is hot so maybe re also?

samefag to add spiritfarer because I've seen a lot of women talking about it and it seems comfy

If it's just games that aren't porny and violent that really includes a ton of stuff though. Or does 'autistic shit' also include like war game strategy and other super meta kind of games?
Destiny? Or is games as a service too much like gatcha? It has a lot of important female characters.
I wouldn't know what games I play have 'sizable female fandoms' cause I don't use twitter/reddit.

What about mainstream multiplayer games like Apex, Valo, LoL, FFXIV, WoW, Hearthstone, OW, Among Us etc, have large female player base in terms of numbers but are not specifically female majority? Are those considered feminine or more unisex?

I feel like in the gaming sphere they're considered masculine (like the competitive scene is primarily men but that's because women are bullied out of it) and lotta dicks preventing VC from being used as a woman but not so masculine that all mainstream rep is male gaming so I'd say masculine but leaning into unisex. Maybe more masculine for things like Among Us, more feminine for FFXIV.
Depends on the community, there's a lot more popular Asian Women who play games like this, that's primarily where I see women playing this mainstream like twitch.

But if we're making a feminine game list I say they count, we know there's a significant female fanbase, even if the males don't.

The Nancy Drew games and maybe Haunting Ground(though you could argue that it's a Clock Tower game).

High school dreams. Unironically. It’s actually really amusing, the MC is really sassy and you can date so many different guys or essentially bully them kek

Another one is the Desperate Housewives game. It’s like the sims 2 with a murder mystery plot.
