No one's going to provide [sic] your any examples because you keep bumping random shit on the catalog like a maniac, piling threads one above the other.
I know you've got the mental capacity of a 13 year old girl going through puberty and you'll do the exact opposite of what's being suggested to you, but seeing what threads are lined up first on a catalog is what helps prompt discussion.

yeah real clever idea, because everyone should just create a new thread rather than revive the existing thread which is still well below the bump limit. that would totally solve the board's problems. tbh maybe /v/ ought to take a whole page from /b/ and allow pointless oneoff onesentence threads that slides the whole catalog down before sliding off itself with only 3 to 5 posts in total.

Playing an interesting SNES RPG called Bushi Seiryuuden. It's like a sidescrolling action RPG, except it follows roguelike rules where everything only moves when you do, so the strategy is to finish each battle in as few moves as possible. You get a little monster girl to help you by attacking enemies and carrying you around etc.

Also it's made by Game Freak so the character designs are top notch, reminiscent of old Pokegirls.

I knew his death was coming. What I didn't know is that they were going to bury him on a shallow grave not even a quarter through the game.
Who thought at Sony this was a good idea? Were they going to kill a party member only because FF7 did it as well? What's the point? Why would you go through the hassle of developing a party member if you're doing him this dirty and quick in-game?
What's more, they did away with the character with the best chemistry with MC. Dart and Lavitz were brothers-in-arms: they thought alike, they looked out to each other's back and fought against hardships together. Even Shana pointed out how boring and shitty her character is compared to Lavitz's, sometime shortly before he fucking died. If the retards at SCEJ weren't completely clueless this game would've been Dart & Lavitz's big bro adventures featuring one whore for each one to fuck. Instead, they'll be pulling one remember that guy from disc 1? he fucked his mom every now and then because the devs are fags and want to piss off the player.

Is there anything to look forward to this game anymore? Sometime before he died the game slowly morphed into MacGuffin quest with a bunch of weirdos flashing their balls to strangers because that's the plot or some shit. Ignoring the plot, most importantly, now that the fucker's 6-feet underground all supporting party members left are absolutely horrible: Rose is a stronk womyn warriya who need no man, gets pissy at everyone and has an ugly face to boot; the old man's too safe and plain for an old coot, the prince dude's as boring as you'd expect from a noble and Shana's got no character to speak of.
Is it going to get better? The only thing I'm looking forward to anymore is the blue haired whore that's appearing in disc 2 forward.

I don't care about him sucking ass since this game's too easy already, but if his character's borderline retarded that's a shame. I thought he was simply going to be a big guy.

The Super Mayro RPG remaster got leaked early, gave it a shot. It's ALMOST 1:1 including finding Peach's ??? and honestly it looks super pretty. There's a couple of extra additions like an autosave that happens between every room, and of course that fancy chain action going on that temporarily boosts your stats if you keep getting perfect hits and perfect guards in a row.
That being said, I'd still play the original since it has a more charming style for its system, but if you have a normalfag friend or family member that wants to see why you're a fan but can't get into emulation, it's a fairly solid recommend.
>>224670
i would say its a case of the system shock remake where its better in almost every way while remaining faithful BUT the dated visuals of the original were a huge part of why its still better in some ways and recommended.
Replies: >>224692

>including finding Peach's ???
I'm genuinely astonished that made it into a modern Nintendo game.  If the rest of the game is that faithful and they made the item descriptions and combat system less of a mess then it might actually be good enough to supplant the original.  I was initially leery of how accurate the cutscenes were, because the super HD models look weird pantomiming stuff as though they were sprites.
The only thing I truly, unequivocally hate about it is the Mario Kart 8 HUD.

You ever get the feeling an RPG is too primitive for you to enjoy it? 

I don't care if the graphics are dated, or the systems are super unbalanced with useless skills that are pure trap options, but I can't stand when an interface is terrible. Stuff like the inventory arranging dozens of items in a single vertical line that only shows five items at a time and slowly have to scroll through each of them to get what you're trying to use, or placing unremapable hotkeys all over the keyboard to make it so they can't be easily used. Worse still is save games that can't be sorted by most recent or playtime so you have to manually record which save game you made last (or dig in the files to see the date in some games).

Oh, you're talking about Daggerfall, right?
Personally, that wasn't a deal breaker for me, I still enjoyed the game, but I understand it's a legitimate problem.
If I remember correctly, Daggerfall Unity has a mod that fixes that.

Anyway, is anyone ITT interested in Shin Megami Tensei Imagine? A new private server called "New Moon" just launched recently, and I hear it's having a pretty successful turnout. It's a successor to the popular "Re:Imagine" private server that shut down a while ago, and it carries over its most convenient features, such as the Material Tank upgrade.
Personally, I haven't joined the server just yet, but I'm keeping an eye on it. I love the game, so I'm always happy to see new servers.

Depends on how terrible. I can get used to somewhat shitty UI if the rest of the game is good, but usually the problem is just bad layout or missing options to remove some tedium. I can't recall any game I've dropped because of UI alone.

I was thinking Fallout 1/2, but Daggerfall counts too (especially the save game thing). At least you have basic sorting options in Daggerfall.

I like how they had to write ノーマル next to normal. Surely English dekinai nips wouldn't be able to play this game without it. Even though half of nip games have menu items (or a random subset of them) in English just because.

They're most likely trying to play it safe and keep their potential audience as wide as can be with the simplest method, this might seem odd but the Roman alphabet is not native to Japan and many Nips even if they learnt "English" at school are still reverse dekinais who simply cannot be expected to properly interprete the word "normal", but every Nip who doesn't have some kind of brain damage should be able to read basic 仮名 just fine.
In western Yurop and Greater Brazil the term "normal" is found as a native part of multiple extant languages with identical meaning in each of them due to Roman influence or some shit hence almost anyone will able to read and understand it without needing any specific English knowledge, alternatively they'll probably have picked it up through Judeo-Imperialist McCultural Osmosis which is highly pervasive even among preschool children.

Now Nips do have burger influence as well, but they also have the problem that their Language syntax and general usage while sensible and structured might as well come straight from the Moon compared to the way Latin-based or influenced Western languages are built and executed AND in addition their tonal repertoire is among the smallest for any complex natural written language, so not only do English-Nip translations have to creatively reconstruct Western idioms into appropriate Japanese idioms which while often conceptually similar are expressed in a rather different way, but they also have to mangle the pronunciation to fit the tiny 仮名 table creating something that at times barely resembles its English source.
Then, of coursh, there is the fact that young elementary Japanese schoolchildren can only be expected to reliably read かな with very little 漢字 knowledge and even less knowledge of Western terminology even if they learn the basic Roman Alphabet, as the Japanese language as an isolate far outside the realm of Latin/Roman influence provides them exactly 0 references for instinctually interpreting the letters on their own, just like the average westerner even after lots of exposure to Moonrunes and the Nipponese language still won't know shit without deliberately learning it.
Soytendo games try to get children used to everyday English words but even that isn't helping because they're not teaching the kids to write and speak English, they're promoting usage of English words mangled into 片仮名 and jammed into Japanese creating an east Asian el linguino that isn't White Americaryan no matter how hard its grandma was raped by US GIs during the postwar occupation.
Kids being unable to read most 漢字 is also why 少年漫画 have 振り仮名 below every Rune, even if content-wise they're aimed at middle schoolers.

The last reason is that Japan isn't 欧米 and due to the extremely small amount of foreign invaders both in blood and culture thanks to the massive language barrier coupled with its Island geography and current political/cultural standings amid its nearest Asian neighbours there's just no reason not to print small 片仮名 below the ローマ字 even if more than 80% of the people most likely to see the image can probably read and interprete the word(s) fine.

>Shouldn't they write something like 普通 (or whatever of the 94838 possible meanings of normal they need here).
If they wanted to write 普通 they would've done so, but they wrote "normal" probably to look hip and cool and "normal" is not Japanese so they put ノーマル below it in カタカナ。
The other reason is that ノーマル is a common 和製英語 word of modern post-1945 Japanese.

I wonder if anyone has cleared this quiz game on the first try. How do they expect you to remember the numbers of all the Ouroboros members, Estelle's birthday, and some random code from a side quest at the beginning of the first game?

Trails world building started going downhill after the first arc, because they made one of the biggest no-nos in modern media: having refugees that aren't the perfect good guys. Back in Sky the issue was that they showed up and started demanding more and more, then causing problems. Portraying refugees like that is 200% absolutely unacceptable today. The Crossbell arc started retconning it by making the bad guys the far-right racists, though it at least admitted that the refugee mafia was involved in shady stuff, like assassinating and threatening politicians that didn't do what they wanted. That's completely swept under the rug later on, and from what I hear the most recent arc is about the evil racist white man Trump stand-in.

Hard to take the world seriously when it retcons itself so hard to match real world political correctness.

Is it just me or is the general perception of the 4th console generation being a haven for Mayro clones and Final Faggot tree-style RPGs entirely manufactured by western ((( Games Journalism )))?
By sheer volume SRPGs seem to make up the vast majority of 日本製RPG games if not a significant portion of the general late 20th century nipponese console and PC libraries, not only that but games lauded as deep and inspiring by Journalistes and/or Soydrone Shilltubers overwhelmingly feature Kanji and Grammar aimed at elementary schoolers whereas SRPGs tend to be much more linguistically sophisticated.

Shoul Game Journalists be lynched and are any of the ロドス島戦記 game adaptions worthwhile by the esteemed standards of these threads?
I played the Mega CD game for a bit and am currently emulatan Advent of Avarice.
The former I can't recommend as its main selling points are clips from the OVA in beautifel Mega CD cumpression along with the soundtrack ripped from said OVA and nothing else apart from shit leveling and sloggish gameplay, Advent of Avarice on the other hand is an earnest shitpost of a Diable clone with full blown balls to the wall 支那事変 Kanji name(!) input for naming chars and crafted gear.
I have no idea how they fit 2000-ish Kanji bitmaps into the Dreamcast RAM without turning the game into Bubsy's 3D Mahjong adventure but it just werks.

I never said I'd be limiting myself to the SFC which for what's worth has a balanced pool of game genres in its Nip no-intro set, but taking the PCE and Nip computer into account not only the amount but also the relatively high production values behind such games as well as SRPGs being the "default" for many loicense games indicates a level of autism that western advertisers didn't quite carry over into the western sphere of conciousness.

To answer the question for the benefit of people who aren't (You) FF7 is massively overhyped and inferior to the Final Fantasy games surrounding it. Fap to Tifa's tits and then play either FF6 for a decent Final Fantasy or FF8 to laugh as you abuse the junction and limit break systems to become the ultimate life form.

Eh, it was a fun game when I played it way back in the day and the whole fighting to stop the evil corporation that is destroying the planet, making retarded genetic experiments making a lion fuck the last acient descent because reasons among so many things just because they don't have anything else to do, sounds silly, no really why the fuck are they doing all that shit? Why mix xeno cells with soldiers to make super soldiers, who the fuck are they fighting?
Just play trail in the sky if you want some JRPGs or Dungeon Travelers 2 for some dungeon crawling.

It wasn't as bad as I thought, but I still think it should have been an optional post game thing instead of required to beat the game. There was no story relevance and it just killed the pacing right at the end. At least the Crossbell gaiden was story relevant and had hot Rixia in it.

I started up the 3rd game and I already don't like the new art style. I feel like they sucked some of the personality out of the faces of the 3D models.

That girl was one of the ones that was least impacted by the new graphics. A lot of them look like different people with entirely different body types. Shorty there looks at least pretty much the same as in the previous game. I don't mind hot girls, but I'm not sure I like that most of them got almost cartoonish hourglass bodies when they weren't as exaggerated in the previous games.

I never got into FFVII either, so I went and looked up a bunch of FFVII videos to see what all the noise was about.
Turns out it's just a cliched "save the environment" story with some dumb ancient alien lore.

They're loud about it because they're frustrated but haven't done anything to solve their problem. Eventually they'll have to either stop playing Japanese games or start learning Japanese. Of course, once you do start learning, games provide an abundance of practice material.

Sure, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll stop doing it.

It's not a retreat, the problem is that not enough people cared to learn Japanese and kept buying localized slop, and now they have gained enough power to invade the Japanese version directly. I still see plenty of retards even here posting localized screenshots.

most normalfags can't spend 10 minutes figuring out how to get fansubbed anime instead of paying for the trannylated version on crunchyroll and you expect them to spend thousands of hours learning japanese?
>>237710
You go through some incredible mental gymnastics. These people are backed by some of the richest and most influential people alive. They would immediately move to censor Japanese games if they noticed any significant number of people just learning the poorly constructed chinkrunes. They're already doing it and they would have started even earlier if everyone stopped caring about localized versions and went for the Japanese versions. I already mentioned that this isn't about the money, so even if normalfags all stopped buying this shit, the people responsible would continue to push it.
Immediately giving up and surrendering something to evil people is most certainly retreating, regardless of how you try to spin it. It shouldn't be considered wrong to expect translations to meet a certain standard.

You're the one engaging in mental gymnastics because you want to have your cake and eat it too. Translation existing in the first place is a problem, because it is an attack vector for foreigners. You pretend you have principles but you just want to take the easy route of not learning shit and just rely on a corruptable third party to read stories to you.

The majority of normalfag gamers believe that most pirated games contain malware that will steal all their financial info and accounts and probably blow up their computer. The majority of normalfags also don't know how to download files from a torrent. A large percentage of them don't know how to open a .7z file. When I post about a product on normalfag websites and the post gets dozens of le upvotes (hundreds of views) that means at least a few are going to consume the product after purchasing it.

Even on high IQ imageboards like this one I still see lots of retards buying games because of their crippling moralfaggotry. They will pay $30 for a game they could've easily pirated and then eat the cheapest junk food at walmart because now they can't afford the more expensive healthy food that tastes better and doesn't give you diabetes. Very few are wealthy enough to have both.

Don't confuse trying to be good and being utterly retarded. It's objectively evil to support a significant majority of big businesses today, so a supposed moralfag wouldn't do that. What makes people support those businesses is an extreme lack of intelligence and the inability to have any thoughts that aren't approved by mass media.
