Dead like Laura's womb
i can't believe kiseki is fucking dead
>>253182724It was a good run
>>253182485Says the dude fucking a murderous bullhorn dyke with closeted mommy issues.
>>253183320She has been tamed completely, Ao shirley is unrecognizable at this point
There are no attack bonuses in kiseki for attacking enemies in the back or sides like some jrpgs is there?
>>253184668What are those bottom faces supposed to convey?
>>253182087>psp stretched to 1080p
>>253184880I don't know why the screenshots turned out like that, it didn't look like that when I played it.
>>253185476what is Tio going to do to Rean?
>>253184778your depth in her ass
>>253185603Putify a hot spring
>>253186376Man, even Tio cucks Crossbell after what Randy did in CS4.
A happy Rixia because Toronto Raptors has a decent chance of winning the NBA Championship! YAAY!
>>253186817They wont beat the Bucks. Enjoy your pyrrhic victory.
>>253186817Hope the Bucks own your canuck asses.
>>253186817When does basketball get invented in zemuria
>>253187105In the favelas of Calvard
>>253186817Can they even win against the Bucks ?
>>253186817and literally nobody gave a fuck
>>253186817WE THE NORDS
>>253187669Why does she do this
>>253187742it's an invitation
>>253188067Haha, you know his name...
>>253184668Does she date dark skinned men? Asking for a friend haha
Did Zero finally get a finished translation?
Reminder for everyone that the Twitchthot is a furry slut who is down to fuck for everyone as lone as he wears a Mishy headpiece. Also, the rest of SSS are perverts funded by Tio's Patreon using the nudes of the SSS as bait. When the pedos are tired of fapping to Elie, Tio, Noel, Fran, and Wazy these degenerates may force even KeA and Shizuku to pose for some nudes.FIE HATE
>>253190970lol nogeofront's update post is two months overdue, too
>>253191394>>253191996I forgot for a second how the romhacking scene is....
I have a Noel now! Today is a good day!
>>253188085to come inside
>>253197921I'm gonna be real with you, Anon. If you're playing Zero, there's not much incentive to use her over the main SSS.
>>253198868But she's cute!
I can't wait to play ADOL: Monstrums Die Twice!
Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IIICharge forward and lead the next generation.The Erebonian Empire stands stronger than ever, and tensions mount like never before seen in the continent of Zemuria. Annexations abound. Crossbell and North Ambria are in Erebonian chains. Furthermore, the mysterious society of Ouroboros has begun to slither once again.Rean Schwarzer, the Ashen Chevalier, has been hailed as a hero of the Erebonian Civil War, having helped to bring it to a swift and decisive end. Rean is now an instructor at Thors Military Academy, a place entwined with his greatest joys yet also with his greatest sorrows. A new Class VII is formed, with its alumnus Rean as its mentor.Inflections of the past and conflicts of the present, Rean must grapple with both the shadow that hangs over Erebonia and the shadow that hangs over his own heart.
>>253199587She doesn't have any combo crafts in Zero, for starters.
>>253200180Ah. Yeah that's a kicker. Im playing Zero. I don't know why I keep getting Ao and Zero's names mixed up.
>>253200071That AI is getting pretty smart
What did /fg/ do for your moms on Mother's day?
>>253198868cute sepith farmer
>>253202809Got her a bunch of cannabis
Don't be a fag, Lloyd this is the chance of a life time.
>>253202838Wait, she can farm Sepith in Zero too?>>253203747Lloyd is too pure for his own good sometimes. Barring that one final bonding event in Zero.
>>253204091Sexy Seeker Sisters, man! That's three Ss. It's meant to be!
>>253204151Man, I never realized Noel was so much bigger than Fran. I mean, she's older and all, but still.
Is Sara fertile?
>>253202809I want to rape all of Rean's moms!
Man, just imagine her laying all sprawled out on the bed, drooling in her sleep with her mouth wide open. Her top all crumpled with one boob hanging out.
>Elietard in the previous thread>Now Lunamaria and Meyrin are being spammedWhat the fuck is up with these new Kekbell waifufags?
>>253205146That's what it was. That's what they where remind me of. Oh Luna, I wish your show was better.
>>253205217She still can't hit shit even if she were standing on top of it.
>>253205684True but to be fair her skills where more in melee focused. I feel like people forgot that early on she was kung fu fighting in the gunner against the high mobility gaia and once she got the sword strike it was slice and dice o lock. So you can blame it on retarded management.Also cute skirt!
>>253205217>>253205965>30 SP StrikeStop spamming that traitorous blind slut
>>253206098Meyrin was the traitor.
>>253206419>wanting Athrun's dick at first>then chasing after Shinn's cockTraitorous slut. Also,Noel is of a similar unloyal mold.
Stay on topic you losers
>>253208289>dabGet fucked, Bracer retard.
>>253208369Seethe harder pig
>>253208543>act like a retard>get called a retard>durr that means I win
What the fuck is Laura good for
>>253209468Absolutely nothing. She should have been a hot-blooded male rival for Rean rather than being his rapist
>>253184769Field attack them
>>253198868She's pretty strong in Zero. Ao not so much.
>>253209468Killing every single thing in the game without breaking a sweat.
>>253206098She hasn't had 30 SP Strike in awhile though I laugh at how her ace bonus is 50% more accuracy and +50% EXP.Anyway, what do you gus think Rean's ace bonus should be?
>>253209829Do her feet smell haha
>>253211228Yeah but that makes it better.
>>253214083Looks like a male. Another proof that each laurafag is a latent faggot.
>>253214634>Sees that as a male>Calls other people faggot
>>25321086830% Crit Damage Up30% Crit Rate UpOr Love costs 40 SP becauses as much as I want to deny it, Daddy is a manwhore
>>253214083How tight is Laura
>>253217558Tighter than KeA
>2019>kondom is STILL obsessed with sisterfucking
Just beat Ys II, without spoiling anything, does Lilia ever show up again? She cute desu
>>253218195>Japan is STILL obsessed with sisterfuckingFixed
>>253218347No wonder they all grow several rows of teeth. It has nothing to do with the nuclear fallout.
>>253218631What the hell am I looking at?
>>253218998Is that supposed to be Rufina? She used a Templar sword
>>253218202She's in Mask of the Sun and Dawn of Ys
>>253218761>>253219097New mobile game for China>Sora no Kiseki OL
>>253219334You better pray this and that other gachashit never gets localized, because it'll consume this thread if it does. It's ruined every other JRPG general that has a gacha entry.
>>253219529It seriously wouldn’t. The games are so shit even for gacha that they won’t take off. Even if they were good it’s still browser only
I just want to throw this out here because I needed the info and couldn't find it anywhere and had to manually search for the address myself.Bonding points address for Cold Steel 2 version 1.4.1ed8_2_PC_US.exe+67F9E0I tried looking for tables but the only existing ones are for older versions of the game and don't work anymore. Bonding points were all I'm interested in. If you are too, that's where they are.
>>253219902You never know. Autists will play anything. Even that shitty Kingdom Hearts gachashit is dominating the general.

What kind of panties does Laura wear
>>253222695Wasn't it black?
>>253222695She has shorts on, so it's hard to say for sure. This guy's blog is dedicated to upskirts of JRPG girls and has some of the other characters, though. http://blog.livedoor.jp/rio_okada/
Has anyone else encountered a bug that drops your jump inputs in Ys 3? Fighting Ellefale and sometimes my jump button just shits the bed and doesn't do anything. Hasn't happened before now so at first I thought I was just bad but its been happening a lot nowI'll mention I'm playing at 144 fps in case higher frame-rates are known to cause any issues
>>253223695Imagine being that guy. Just imagine.
>>253224340sounds like your controller is dying desuor buttons getting fucky
>tfw all the cold steel shitposting made me forget how comfy the sky games are and how immersive the world is
Imagine paying this teen prostitute to suck your cock and not warning her that you're gonna release your cum in her mouth
>>253225654Imagine paying for sex.
>>253225062>>253224340I remember encountering this problem at times when I realize it must be because I was using a 15 year old or so PS2 controller connected to a converter. Maybe I should try to get a different controller in the future.Its actually quite astonishing that it still works mostly fine even after all these years

>>253223695Snoy is going to censor this aren't they?
>>253232421I played Death end re;Quest last month and it had constant pantyshots if you lowered the camera, so I think Sen 3/4 should be fine since it's much harder to get them in those games. The onsen scenes in Sen 4 are another story, though.
This is actually thread #500, I fucked up when making #497 and titled it as #496 and nobody noticed. Happy 500th thread lads.
WHERE THE FUCK IS THE NEWSREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>253235619Well, NISA said they'll be at E3 with CS3 today. I guess that's KINDA news.
>>253219097She used both. That's why Kevin used a crossbow and little sister used the sword.
>>253235559Where do you think she got the title "Thousand Arms"?
>>253236704Tio is like 16, she doesn't have a cunny, just a regular pussy.
*times your path*
>>253239489How many people were in that train Anon?

>>253243467They are kings without a country
Playing Sen 4 right now. What’s the most optimal build for Machias? I’m thinking Tauros + Scorpion and two str+200 accessories. I want to up his damage output as high as possible.
>>253244439>4?>>2532444394?In the earlier games I gave him the status effect quartz
>>253241224>Sky>OtomeOne single male love interest is a pretty shitty otome game.
>>253241224How is it an otome?
>>253218202Lilia a crazy stalker shit
Well bros, I finished Dawn of Ys last night. I was a little skeptical how well the gameplay would hold up but I had a great time. I didn't like how a lot of the dialogue was strictly voice acted with no text boxes to read along with it so I definitely missed some parts of the story from zoning out and stuff, but thats my only real complaint. I think the dungeons were a much more manageable size. Some Yschad here told me that the Temple of Solomon was fucked in Ys II and they were right. It was definitely easier than Ys I or II, especially with the samson boots that just trivialize all the normal combat, which is a little lame but maybe that's just me.I do have some questions now though. How different is Dawn of Ys from Mask of the Sun? people here seem to favor the former, but why? Should I still play it sometime?Also, what is the next game to play? I'll probably take a little break from Ys games for a week or something, but I think Ark is next? I don't think I'm going to play Ys V right now but I probably will eventually.
>>253244439gungnir + one of he high damage ones that give critgungnir goes on literally everyone because crits are fucking broken
>>253249939Ys 5 is shit, both as an Ys game and as a game in general. Don't bother with playing it
>>253245827>>253247284Estelle spends a full game chasing cock.
>>253252469>estelle needs the d and is literally in heat in sc>estelle and joshua have both been rewritten/fleshed out as otome characters with almost all of their interactions between them changed in the english version>6 games later, they still just hold hands and sleep in separate beds/sit a seat apartwhat did Falcom mean by this?
>>253252763Estelle can't satisfy Joshua
>>253252469Yeah, ONE. Otome games are harem games.
*ting ting ting*AHEMFuck NISAFuck XSEEDFuck DubfagsFuck EstelleBless you Falcom keep it 100
>>253253563Not really. Kinetic waifugames are still waifugames, same thing goes for otomeshit, which SC definitely is.
>>253253280That's just how it goes when you have a micropenis. You're better of being gay and taking dicks up the ass in that case.
>>253253937>that scene in sen 4 where joshua asks cassius to impregnate estelle because his dick isn't big enough to even reach, let alone break her hymen and they also want the strongest genes for her childK I N O
>>253254090>>253253937>micropenisNO WONDER JOSHUA'S VOICED BY A GIRL
>>253254090>inbred >strong genes
>>253253937>>253254090Wait, Joshua isn't a eunuch?
>>253253626Rape. Her. Pregnant.
>>253254308>implying cassius x2 wouldn't break the kiseki universe
>>253254357No, he still wants to cum, but his dick is too small to achieve orgasm with a girl. He actually just puts some olive oil on a piece of cloth and polish his knob for about 3 seconds until he ejaculates a pitiful amount.
>>253252763How are they different from the Japanese versions?>>6 games later, they still just hold hands and sleep in separate beds/sit a seat apartI don't understand. Do you want them to get married at sixteen or something?
>>253252763>almost all of their interactions between them changed in the english versionFanfic? Yup. Improvement over JP Estelle and Joshua? Also yup, based XSEED
>estelle says uh in the japanese script>estelle says this in the xseed script, the potrait not even being in sync with her toneAmazing. Literally just making shit up because this is the way the editor wants you to view Estelle.
>>253255624cry more bitchass nobody gives a fuck
>>253255835Shh, XSHILL. It's okay to point out how shit something.
>tfw xseed will never localize your game and improve the story and characters
>>253255624>estelle says uh in the japanese script>estelle says ええと in the NISA script
>>253256282Preferable to a fuckhuge paragraph that's completely made up.
>>253256282>>estelle says ええ- crash to desktop in the NISA script
>>253256412>desktopNOT WHEN THERE'S NO PC PORT LMAO
>>253256467b-b-b-but timed exclusive!!!!!!!!
>>253256515Timed exclusive until you can emulate PS4 games on PC, so let's say 10 years.
>>253256370The made up paragraph's unironically better than "Uh..." though. It might not have been if JP Estelle had been written well to start with, but she's boring as fuck so gimme fanfic
>>253256828Doesn't matter. You can't just make shit up like that because you think the original character is boring. Both Estelle and Joshua are victims of this snark injection, and this thread would reach 750 posts within a few hours if I actually uploaded every example I encounter as I casually play through FC.It's like making subs for a movie and just adding a bunch of shit to the characters or parts you don't find entertaining.
>>253257454This. Based XSEED fixing Falcom's shit game. It's OK when XSEED does it.
>>253257558It's okay when NISA does it too!
>>253257558It's okay when anyone does it. Falcom's dialogue is garbage.
>>253255624>JP Estelle: Thrown off balance/confused/unnerved, says "Uh...">NA Estelle: Thrown off balance/confused/unnerved, says snarky thing that can easily be inferred as reflecting her state of mind despite not being a direct translationGood in my books
>>253258059Indeed. I'm playing the Japanese games again and it really is everywhere. I want to know what kind of senior citizen insane asylum they hang out in where people can't go three sentences without someone laughing and shitting out a stock phrase.
>>253257656Looks like Rion knock off
>>253258419It is, yes. I've played in both languages and I can say that with full confidence.
>>253258317It's something deeply rooted in a lot of japanese games to use repetitive laughs or phrases, if you ever played FFX or ever replay it try to count how many times they say "Let's go" throughout the game
>>253257372That's actually their job as a localization company. They also consulted with Falcom throughout so if Falcom actually had a problem with it they would have changed it or been more literal.
>>253258419Fanfic done well is absolutely good. I almost hate to agree with Milliumfag because he was an insufferable twit with shit taste in cumdolls, but he had a point; look how well Poe did in France when Baudelaire took what we now see as the XSEED/NISA route for his translations.
>>253258550Yeah. I know it's more normal to use repetitive language and specific contextual phrases. Doesn't mean I have to think that's suitable for English, where that kind of thing is usually considered bad.
>>253256771A native application is the best outcome. Emulation is a last resort and usually imperfect to say the least (not downplaying the efforts of emulator developers but it's very difficult to be cycle-perfect).
>>253258471Nah, changing something to your own liking is never good in the context of localization, and it takes some impressive mental gymnastics to arrive at the conclusion that changing one word into an entire paragraph is good in any way, especially when it's done to basically stay in-tune with the editor's rewrite of the character.Find the character boring? Okay, the character's boring. Leave the writer's original intent as is and call it a day. You're an editor/translator, not a writer.
>>253249939Just you wait for the remake bro
>>253259152Nonsense. You can't even argue without misrepresenting what's actually going on. As if nobody can see what you're doing. Don't bother coming here with your shit if you can't even put together a position without needing to fall back on pathetic deceit.
>>253259152>Estelle is put off>Estelle is put offwow such change my view of Estelle is totally different
>>253259152Would you have preferred it as close to literal as possible then? Because as much shit gets heaped on the translation now, I'd wager it be ten times worse with that approach. It'd be like Zeality's redone version of CT, or Sky Render's version of FF6. Bone dry, both.
>>253259320There's nothing to argue about. XSEED's Trails scripts objectively contain a vast amount of legitimate rewrites and fan fiction. Nothing will change that, and nothing will make it acceptable. There's a limit to how much you should change in a localization. Rewriting characters as you see fit and adding lines of dialog goes far past that limit. You sound like a defensive XSEED editor, honestly.
falcom pastebin guy here, new addition:cd version wont be out till the 31st so heres the ototoy.jp 24bit/96khz release (wew this isnt great mastering at all Falcom)[Hi-res][ototoy] Ys VIII SUPER ULTIMATE [FLAC 24bit/96kHz].7z 1.18 GBhttps://mega.nz/#!xsgxACSK!xXaJP15z150sDxoGsak8O3MMBuEcd8O22gxyCY1rYcs
>>253259582There's nothing to argue about because nobody is buying your garbage.>le secret company employee memeIt's like you're actively working to destroy your own credibility.
Reminder that there isn't a single half-decent localization. EOPs should be gassed.
>>253259521You don't have to go to either extreme, dumb dumb. There is a middle ground.
>>253259720There's nothing to buy. Facts are facts, and you're behaving like a perturbed employee who worked on Trails games for XSEED. Doesn't mean that you actually did.
>stealing thisLocalization purists can go off and suck some dick. How these fuckers can't understand why translations that aim toward 100% literal as much as possible are goddamn awful outside academia is beyond me.
>>253259873Except you're spouting opinions, not facts, and that won't change no matter how many times you come here to scream about official products approved and implemented by the developers.
>>253260018See >>253259750It's not rocket science.
>>253260059You'd think, but good like finding that middle ground on here with both sides sperging.
>>253260058>implying an english speaking falcom employee read through the entire bloated script and said OK instead of your greenlighting it from the getgoAnd nah, those are facts. The script IS bloated. Chararcters and dialog ARE changed. What are you trying to argue against? These are facts. I'm not saying it should've been a word-for-word literal translation.
>>253260295And yet you're having a meltdown over a screenshot where the meaning is the same but uses more words.
>>253260018Zero and Ao are good so you are wrong
>>253259676Can I get it on vinyl?
>>253260412>Imagine actually believing thisPlayable to completion doesn't mean good - shit, look at the Gagharv games, those were fucking trainwrecks
>>253260396Except she shows surprise at the rapists in front of her coming on to her in the original script. She doesn't make snide remarks or try to be funny. The editor changed the dialog to be in-line with her "interpretation" of the character.
>>253260880>JP Estelle: Thrown off balance/confused/unnerved, says "Uh...">NA Estelle: Thrown off balance/confused/unnerved, says snarky thing that can easily be inferred as reflecting her state of mind despite not being a direct translationFrom like a half hour ago
>>253260880Nah, the meaning is the same. You're ascribing additional meaning that isn't strictly required by the words. That's entirely on you.
>>253260412Zero has an awful translation full of misspellings and grammatical errorsI’m still enjoying it though
Which of Rean’s harem actually wants him the most
>>253260412Zero and Ao are good despite the janky translations we have to work with, Anon.
>>253261457I'd say Crow, but Rean's in his harem, so Alisa based on total time spent thirsting.
>>253261064And it's no less wrong now than it was then. If anything, attempting to have the character write it off as a joke lessens the impact of the implications for no apparent reason. Mental gymnastics in the defense of bad localization practices, anon.>>253261107It's really not. Turning the character into a comedian for no reason when the same "..." found in the original script would've sufficed in this context isn't something that anyone should defend. It's behavior in-line with Xstelle, but not a response the actual character had in this scene.
>>253261542They are rough but more literal than Xseed. Tidy up the errors and they would be great.
>Would literally lose the ability to function without himAltina>Would never be able to orgasm again if he diedElise>Extreme thirstAlisa, Musse>Wanted him but not obsessed with himEmma, Laura, Juna>Would move on quicklyFie, Sara, Alfin, Towa>Finds Rean’s attachment towards him kind of cringeCrowGuess which one Rean went for haha...

>>253261732Nothing would make the fan translations of Crossbell "great," but they're both fully playable and enjoyable. Floofy and her smear campaign was some low-life nonsense.
>>253261950Crow is the grand master of playing hard to get.

>>253262139>d-d-don't play zero guise it's inaccurate shit and we, the wonderful people of geofront, will fix it so pls wait 3 years thx>script is almost entirely accurate and its main downside is that it's got ESL tier grammar and is overly literalI remember when redditors were storming /v/ on the day of the leak, telling people how much of a machine translation it is and so on.
>>253261720WTF? She's still obviously creeped out in the NA version - possibly more so - and it doesn't lessen anything for any player with a functioning brain that understands the social nuances within English. The implications are still very much there and in your face, even with the joke.
>>253262721The joke is also implicit and obvious in Japanese. He's wilfully refusing to make any connection because it doesn't suit his narrative.
>>253262721Ah, yes, the cultural gap between the East and West, where us silly Westerns cannot possibly understand a surprised gasp and need snark and humor to convey it in a lengthy paragraph. Justify this.>>253262798There is no joke in the Japanese script. Estelle remain silent, then she reacts to one of the perpetrators calling her a kid with her usual catchphrase.I'm not sure why you two are so persistent in justifying this. The character has LITERALLY been rewritten, and there's no cultural significance in having done so. No reason other than the editor wanting the player to experience her vision of the characters and their interactions.
>>253262563If you can deal with the ESL tier grammar, it's perfectly fine. That said, I'd much prefer an option with better grammar and solid editing, but who knows when we're getting that.
>>253263159I'm gonna go ahead and assume the only chance of getting an edited script is via NISA. Maybe we'll get PS4/Switch ports of Crossbell alongside a localization at some point, but I doubt it's anytime soon.
>>253263057Of course we can. We don't need it, but between the two methods of conveyance - the "..." or "uh..." as opposed to an actual attempt at a response that not only channels/reinforces character but also keeps everything about the scene intact - I know which one is the more appealing option.For the record, I'm not denying a lot of Estelle's dialogue was rewritten. That's undeniable. My argument is that the core of her character remains the same in spite of those changes (genki girl, has stick, impulsive, loves Joshua, etc), and said changes actually do her a service by fleshing her out so we end up with a more developed Estelle.
Just chiming in, as someone who's only played FC in Japanese. Estelle's reaction in this scene >>253255624 (ふぇっ?) is to one of the thugs hitting on her. She's surprised and speechless because she doesn't see herself as attractive. Then a few lines later the thugs insult Joshua which brings her to her senses and she flips out on them. I'd say it's an error, how big of one it is is up to you.
>>253263768We'll there's no reason to argue, then. You like it or you don't, but things WERE rewritten or added. It depends on the context and extent, but I don't like it in the slightest. Overall the localization is enjoyable, though.

Is Tokyo Xanadu worth getting?
>>253259676Lost in Green is the only good arrangement on the whole album, and vocals ruin the rest.
Today was a gud mail day.
>>253266093>vocals>hey what should we do in-studio today>let's fucking destroy this is album looool
>>253266259Also, this is the most adorable shit EVER.
>>253266259Don't even pretend you're not gonna wrap that up and use it as a fleshlight.
>>253266315>Outsourcing Sunshine Coastline twice in the very same arrange album >both still manage to be way worse than the original by your domain webmaster
>>253266353this engrish physically hurts my eyes
>>253266259Where’s Agate at Ryan
>>253266624I was wondering this too.
>>253266624Dead and buried after Erika discovered that Agate had been fucking her underage daughter and made a time machine to go back and kill him before they met.
>>253266589Honestly I like the Sunshine Coastline arranges but I wish it didn't take up two spots on the album
>>253266093Hey now, Gens d'Armes was good. I wouldn't say as great as the original version, but still enjoyable nonetheless. At least it has no vocals.
>>253266624EVO wrote Agate and Zin out
>(Hehe, he’s more calm and philosophical looking than I thought)>(I'm worried he'll start reminding me more of Loewe...)what the FUCK did she mean by this?
>>253266093>>253266315>>253266817there's nothing wrong with any of the vocalized tracksliteral shit taste
>>253266956He's going to die.
>>253266956Haha, Rean has that effect...
>>253266925why does she look so exhausted?
>>253266259>Evo artBad choice.
>>253266968The vocals have potential, but it's kinda that they're cheesy compared to the melancholic atmosphere set in the game.
>>253267258Search your heart. You know it be true.
Agate can't handle the bantz
>>253267369Just imagine having your friends joke about how you should be fucking a 12 year old who's standing right in front of you. I'd also smack them with a sword.
>>253267384Kek Karate Kloe is based
>that scene in sen 4 were everybody is chilling out in michellam>guys speaking about how this is the oportunity to spend time with a girl>everyone looks at Rean >geez Rean you have so many girls behind you haha>drop it 2 seconds later and continue like nothing happenedWHY? JUST FUCKING WHY?Why everyone is just accepting that all their fucking female companions are behind Rean's dick and just brush it off like it's nothing."Yeah all our females classmates are fighting for Rean and don't care about us"How can you be such a passive bitch.
>>253267678Because the player is Rean and the whole arc is written to appeal to waifufaggots. Just self-insert like a giant faggot and pretend all the girls want your dick like the rest of Japan does.
>>253267678Here’s your explanation>AshDespises normalfags, only fucks whores>KurtActual beta male>JusisSettled for masturbatory aid>GaiusHas a gf, prefers celibacy until marriage>Elliot and MachiasHolding back, decent chance they fucked Rean’s girls behind his backs>Crow Literally gay

>>253267589>Karate Kloe, Idol Karate KloeThis is low even by sameface standards
>>253266817I mean, it lacks the energy from the original, but Lost in Green and Gens d'Armes are pretty much the most enjoyable arranges. Too bad about that fucking hideous EWI Sunshine Coastline, because the second half is actually alright.>>253266968No way fag. There's too many vocal songs, track variety is pathetic and to make things even worse, Everlasting Transeunt is just the in-game version but with English vocals. The only good thing about Singa's vocal songs is that they force him to actually have form and structure, but they still sound like garbage and are cheesy as hell like >>253267172 said. All Singa has going for is some female singers and a sax player.
>>253268070>Machias+PatiryI think Machias shot this one down himself - dunno if it was because he wasn't interested or he thought she wasn't, but either way the Gunlord avoids being shackled to a harpy, based
>>253267853>self-insert as a whoreYikes
>>253266925The upper half of this picture is incredible, but goddamn the leg anatomy is fucked.
>>253267853>>253267874>>253268070>>253268104Fuck this shit, I'm not even mad about the harem, it's part of the course for these games, but have the decency of making your MC interesting enough to be credible(like pic related, they both are lightyears more interesting and credible of having a harem) Rean is such a walking bread that it only irritates me more. Hope the calvard mc is cool enough to deserve a harem. I mean it will be, you can't be worse than haha ReanAlso hoping he's more powerful or have some special thing more powerful than ogre powers so Rean can finally stop being the special snowflake that everyone loves for being so strong.
>>253268268Machias is just an idiot who doesn't know what tsun is. Parity obviously wants the guncock. Machias seemed to consider it, he just doesn't realize what her sperging means.
>>253269580I have a feeling Calvard MC will be female. The fujos have seriously started to take over, and Falcom is highly receptive to popularity polls
>>253269745He dodged a bullet. There's a certain level of attractiveness you need to be pull off that much tsun if dere barely comes along, and she don't got it

>>253271651I really, REALLY like this gif
i'm nto sure if what i saw was a visual glitch or some sort of spoiler, i'm at the play scene in Chapter 2 of Zero, and there was a second Lloyd standing next to Dudly as they rushed towards the secretary
>>253269580>Rean is shit REEEEEEEKay
>>253272264It's a PC version glitch
>>253272456Don't blame him, he's trying to get /fg/ cool points.
>>253261950>Wanted him but not obsessed with him>LauraThe cave scene says differently.
>>253272491I don't. I just find it funny is all.
>>253272491How dare he, everyone knows that Rean is a flawless character and beyond all reproach
>>253272805And god knows /fg/ only knows how to pick one of two extremes because the majority of them aren't all that bright.
>>253271651Oh hell yes.
>>253271651make Tio one back and forthIt would look like she's giving a handy

Ranking waifufags in /fg/I have no waifu so I am going to be completely objective hereSS tierPrimal anon. God rest his soul.S tierRennefags. In all my years on 4chan it is exceptional to see a waifufag use their waifus negative memes for their own pleasure. It is pretty based, regardless of what you think of RenneA tier:Altinafag. Pure hatred and contempt fits well with Altina’s emotionless looking mug. I always had this headcanon while playing that Altina secretly despised all the other girls who competed for Rean’s affections.B tier:Mussefags. The speeches were pure kino. C tier: Tiofags. Responsible for a fair amount of cute and funny content in the general. And thanks to based Kitsune for producing the chad spreadsheet that continues to make JOPs seethe to this day D tier: Fie and LaurafagsJust fucking boring all around, but they have saved the general in its darkest days. Allowed the general to survive until greater shitposts could surface. Throw in this tier all the other waifufags who hardly contribute more than pics and “x love!”F tier:Towafags. Just like Towa is annoying and forced in falcom games she is annoying and forced here too. G tier:Estellefags. Brainless bimbo, I’m getting sick of seeing the same fucking unfunny screenshotsTrash tier: AlisafagsBitchy and insecure, just like AlisaThat is all, have a good day. If you were not mentioned you did not make enough of an impression.
>>253269745>>253269985But the ones who want a female MC are Otomesis. Fujos prefer an all male cast.
>>253276165What rank are Sara-fags
>>253276165>nowaifufagLiterally worst of all, go be a dipshit somewhere else.
>>253276165>If you were not mentioned you did not make enough of an impression.Emmafags get BTFO'd again
>>253276512Pretty sure that dude killed himself
>>253276568What if he become so twisted he evolved into the Altinakek
>>253276568He could have been happy if he had liked loli Emma instead!
>>253276165>If you were not mentioned you did not make enough of an impression.Emmadev had some pretty strong meme magic, Even got on to the power tier list.
>>253276165Imagine looking at this objectively perfect girl and honestly believing that anything could be superior. I'm serious, just try to imagine it.
>>253276732Fie has the best tummy
>>253276804Fie has the best everything.
>>253276717Emmadev did enough to boost his waifu's ranking by a ton, but she still lagged behind Alisa, Fie, and Laura come Sen IV and the naked hug wasn't anywhere near canon despite the sperging Emmafags insisting otherwise.He won a battle, but lost the war hard.
>>253276165>tfw S, B, G and Trash at the same time
>>253271401I love Elie!
>>253277162Why are you such a manwhore, anon?
Lloyd has a harem like Rean does but /fg/ never seems to mention that
>>253277460Nobody played Lloyd's games
>>253277460Rean’s harem was so much larger it made lloyd look like far less of a harem protagonist by comparison.Also the elie shipping took over by sen 4 anyways with falcom pushing it much harder than rixia or (laughs) Noel
>>253277460I haven't beating Zero yet but it seems to have the advantage that it's main party is a lot smaller so they've all been getting a lot more focus to develop and interact without outside of Lloyd himself.
>>253277524Pretty sure everyone did
>>253277312>>253277362I thought that part would've been obvious
Rixia is a slut. Not quite as slutty as Rion, but she's on her way.
Haha, /fg/ sure does love talking about which of their girls are the least pure and most whore-ish...
>>253276165Respectable list, though I would put Tiokeks a bit lower because they are degenerates who are into bestiality.>>253277460>Autist assassin plays with herself every night thinking of the time she met Daddy>The Twitchthot lusts after Daddy now after seeing his naked body and want to be have will bestial sex with Daddy's Ogre Form>SSS's #1 fangirl slut wants to seduce her kyoukan now>Cecille, Lunamaria, and Meyrin are all mindbroken by the Erebonian Garrison>Randy consider Rean as his best friend now>The Perfect Cumdoll has swapped daddy notes with the Divine Cumdoll, and the Divine Cumdoll is envious>Dancer Kloe is now the onahole of a NEET and a manlet jobber incel
>>253278762>most whore-ish...I think we all pretty much agree that's Rion.
>>253278670>Not quite as slutty as RionNo one's as slutty as Rion except for Renne
>>253276165Altinakek doesn't even like Altina though.
>>2532774601. It has fewer members2. Shitting on Sen is what's popular on /fg/, as is sucking Crossbell dick.
>>253278772>So this one time my sister and I got raped by nearly 20 men.
>>253277460It's a matter of severity and execution. Lloyd's harem is kind of a side thing that's often treated as a joke, while Rean's harem gets tied to a central gameplay mechanic and leads to a game where multiple girls can make physical advances on him.
Let's be honest, no Kiseki girl is a pure maiden. All of them are corrupted skanks and sluts to some degree, and you just know they're waiting on the next pretty boy to sweep them off their feet and add them to his harem.
>>253279642it's okay when crossbell does it
>>253279780It's always hilarious to watch them bend over backwards to justify it in Crossbell just so they can keep up the "OLD GOOD NEW BAD" /fg/ party line.
>>253279780It's okay when the people who do it right do it.That's typically how it goes.>>253279954Nobody's defending it, but the key difference is that Crossbell doesn't focus on it. The characters all have more agency and more going on in the plot and develop actual relationships with each other outside of saying the MC's name all day.
>the thirstiest kiseki girls are all in their mid-teensredpilled
>>253279746Even the NPCs?
>>253279780Because it does it better and less offensively. What's so hard to understand about that?
>>253280214Especially the NPCs. You don't want to even know what kind of shit Beryl is into.
>>253280140But the thirstiest Kiseki girl is Obahan
>>253280262She's going to dig up that grave to do what she wants with Karin's corpse.
>what I have is a romantic abnormality. One so unbelievable, that it must be hidden from the public at all costs.
>>253280374What the FUCK is her problem?
>>253279746Based, the girls are shit and anyone who waifus them has no standards and therefore is also shit
>>253280414B-b-b-b-b-but /fg/ said everyone woman in CS is only attracted to Rean! Surely /fg/ would never exaggerate out of bias!?
There are so many characters in kiseki alone how can you remember all of them let alone characters from other games too
>>253280723Shirley is also immune, reankeks destroyed
>>253280897nerding over the series 10 hours every day
>>253279746Bitches and whores. Every each of them.
>>253280897The series needs a soft reset where it can just nonchalantly forget about a bunch of them and concentrate on ones important to future arcs.
>>253279351Did Lloyd banged the fortuneteller too?
>>253280897I’ve remembered a fuckton of dumb kiseki shit but only at the cost of forgetting entire libraries of games/books/movies/songs I’ve consumed over the years. It’s a steep price to pay.
Remember that time Rean fucked Alisa in the Merkebah’s bathroom
>>253281206Luciola only wants to fuck old circus ringmasters.
>>253281182>it can just nonchalantly forget about a bunch of themAnd introduce twice the number next arc, genius plan.
>>253281361But she wants a Daddy.
>>253277246Smooth talking son of a bitch. Just shack already.
>>253281430Then don't do that and introduce new characters in moderation? It's not like Falcom hasn't done that before. They don't need pump out the token archetype characters to fill out an entire high school class this time around.
>>253281334Or that time when Elise caught the both of them in the bath?
>>253266597You probably can't write even one Japanese character you fucktard, and most likely don't know any other language than yours, you fucking americunt.>this engrish physically hurts my eyesGo choke on a cock you uncultured ape.
>>253281182Easiest fix could writing it as some barrier shit that literally prevents all the powerhouses from swarming a country when the shit hits the fan
>>253281715In any case, you know that's pure wishful thinking considering that both members of both Class VIIs (as well as the characters related to them) are popular enough to warrant appearances in future games. It wouldn't be Trails if previous characters didn't show up to advance the overall plot for some reason, after all.
>>253281668I like Elie's soft giggles.

>>253284065It's in literally the OP post and has been for quite some time.
>>253284168read the novels
>>253284448Not sure what that has to do with anything but probably once I finished the game.
>>253284734Well okay then. I look forward to getting to the.
>>253250962Just let Fie get Gungnir + Tauros/Gorz, let Fie go to stealth, and then use her S-Craft. Stealth Fie literally can just get a shit load of damage with her S-Craft. Though I'd say endgame Rean is pretty broken with the amount of shit he has with the exclusive accessories he gets at Mishelam.

Laurafags are gay, as they are attracted by her manly attributes.
>>253289110i like Laura and im a girl.
>Falcom has had a philosophy, right from the beginning, that has been carried on to this day. When we create a game design, the gameplay system has to be interesting, and if the gameplay system is not interesting, the designers get in trouble. There are people within the company who would say, "Okay, let's use the character to attract the audience." Those kinds of game designs would get canned. They would get in trouble.>That's one of our strong, strong philosophies that has been helping us avoid going in the direction of those otaku, moe characters. If the gameplay system is fun and interesting, we value that the most. If the gameplay system is fun, then we probably might not mind adding those things as another factor to the game, but we don't want that to be the main pull of the game.>Especially with the Ys series, we concentrate on how good the action feels, so we create a lot of prototypes in our development process. The first thing we do is have the character walk and run. And so we have prototypes of the character walking and running, and we try the prototype, and if you feel good just walking in the game, and running in the game, then you know that's a go sign for you to move forward. But if it doesn't feel good at that point, then we just go back and recreate the prototype. So that's how we create games.>That's the reason we don't have those elements in our games too much. Yeah, the Kiseki series, it's not like we've totally said "we don't do that" with it. The Kiseki series has some of those factors. But for us, those factors are never going to be the main pull of the game. We always concentrate on the gameplay systems. The main thing is the gameplay system, for us.Based Kondo

>>253311685But Laura makes my penis soft
>>253313968Does she? Tough luck, Anon, I wanna have rough passionate unprotected sex with her
>>253313968>I take Nord cocks in the ass: the post
Celceta, Origin or Ark of Naphishtim after I finish Oath in Felghana?
>>253315042you gonna get aids
>>253289794If coldsteel was balanced well it would be one of the best turn based combat systems in all of jrpgs desu
>>253315187Napishtim, Oath and Origin were made in that order and play similarly so Origin is the most polished out of the three. Personally I liked Napishtim way less than Felghana and Origin so might as well get Napishtim out of the way now if you wanna play it, or just skip it entirely. Celceta is party-based and probably the easiest Ys game. So I'd agree with the other anon, go with Origin for now.
>>253315042How do these belts work exactly?

>>253318350At least I have a waifu with a decent sex drive
>>253320259How's the translation?
>>253320382I played it at launch and it was fine for the most part, not nearly as bad as some people were making it out to be.
i want to lick mishi feet
>>253322865I want to lick Tio's feet

>>253182110improper texture filtering and lack of proper psp screen overlay
>>253306437It's because he looks like an emo. I mean, the kid was kind of emo, but by then he's supposed to be at least slightly less emo.
>>253328412Not Fie tho, she's okay
>>253333820>Alisa being retarded and not bringing glassesSeems about right.
What exactly does the flame edit for Ao do?
>>253337494Makes the translation less shit overall.
>>253337494Removes some soul and some voiced lines (the latter by accident)
>>253337564>>253337691I guess I'll use it then. I read that it destroys the voice acting, but if that is the price I have to pay for decent english then so be it. Some of the text in the zero translation was almost unintelligible.
>>253337691even before the flame edit Ao is way above zero in translation quality
>>253338013Going from Zero to the Ao is like going from Zero to Sky or CS. The original translation is fine.
>>253338510>>253338559>even before the flame edit Ao is way above zero in translation qualityThank god. I just finished zero and I'm not sure if I could handle another 50 hours of broken english.
>>253338805Having played Wild Arms 2 localization has given me immunity to incomprehensible english.
>>253339004I don't know what's worse: Zero, Gagbarf, or Breath of Fire 2's official localization?
>>253339178>GagbarfThis3 games of this shit
>>253338559I dont get it
>>253337691B O N K E R S
>>253322446No it was really bad. The fact that they totally redid large parts of the translation and had to bring the VAs back to rerecord a bunch of dialog should be proof of that.
Don't lewd the lolis!
>>253339178VP was really bad. Under the shitty localisation there is a intriguing story.If they ever do a remaster they will have to re-translate it.
>>253342192Do you think KeA and Shizuku have experimented with one another?
XSEED will announce Zero at E3cap this
>>253322446While this is true, NISA as a company was already at the point where just 'fine' really wasn't acceptable any more, especially for a title like Ys VIII. Full credit to them though, they took the heat and fixed all the rough spots.
>>253342739XSEED will announce some shitty game that no one care aboutcap this
>>253342739Imagine the reaction
Calvard will have no lolis.
>>253343093I'd bet on NISA finishing both CS3 and 4 before Zero gets released, in that case.
Aight fellas. Playing through trails of cold steel for the first time and i don't know who i wanna romance. Leaning towards Fie but i'm a sucker for "canon" and alisa is obviously meant to be that. Coming up on the end of the game as well so runnin out of time. Help a retard out.
>>253343954CS3 has a hard reset for bonding points and relationship progress, so it doesn't matter at all who you pick in CS1 and CS2.
>>253343954You might not get a choice
>jenis festival>bunch of decorations on buildings and popcorn vendors>end the day with a shit playI somehow don't believe hundreds of people would show up to watch this shit.
>>253339178ff7's localization makes the story hell to follow unless you know about it beforehand
>>253344140Yeah but playing one and two with one girl then jumping ship to another for 3 and 4 just feels wrong. I want a wholesome relationship hombre.
>>253344286It's a vapid harem mechanic in the long run, so that sentiment doesn't mean much. By the final game in the series, several girls can end make making advances on Rean even if you didn't pick them as his waifu.
>>253344178They're alumni and Liberl is a boring place.
>>253344538That's why you gotta stay strong and stick with your one true waifu. The rean mean machine is gettin tested and he's gotta stay faithful.
>>253344286If you're thinking full picture then any of the six main girls gets you a satisfying ending. Don't settle for Alisa just because the first game shoves her down your throat.
>>253344178Perfect networking party
>>253344178See, Jenis actually reflects the in-universe zeitgeist and doesn't shoehorn 21st century pyrotechnics or a teen idol concert into a setting where those don't belong.
>>253345101Haha, well said, fellow /fg/ member! OLD GOOD NEW BAD!
>>253345101I'm not sure what you think the difference is. Both of them are completely undisguised recreations of a modern Japanese school festival, and Liberl has lights and pyrotechnics too.
>>253345101Calvard will have an orbal-fueled rave party with a light show.
Will there be a racing or gambling mini game in Calvard?
>>253345610School festivals in and of themselves are nothing new. It's the pop culture shoehorning that's jarring.
>>253346031Were you under the impression that this was the first time the series had mentioned pop culture in some way?
>>253344286your own loss
>people love the jenis academy sections right>let's make an entire arc just like that lmao
>>253346169Of course not, but there's pop culture that's subtle and/or appropriate for the setting and there's stuff that sticks out like a sore thumb.
>>253346376I wanted to kill myself after exploring that fucking shit school in CS so many goddamn times over the course of the game.
>>253346408So, what exactly is inappropriate here? The technology level is fine, school festivals are fine, we don't actually know what kind of song they sing, but pop music isn't remotely new, and dressing people up in mildly sexy outfits for stage performances has real-world roots going back over a century.
>>253346408>>253346720Kids and their young people music these days
>>253346720>we don't actually know what kind of song they sing, but pop music isn't remotely newWe literally hear excerpts of it. It's pop rock music, which makes no sense given that we never hear or see any mention of that genre outside of Thors. The closest we get to learning about Erebonian music is in Heimdallr, which is still all about opera and classically trained musicians. Crossbell was just as bad with this shit, though. Where the hell did the Saber Vipers get their hands on a giant set of speakers and who's playing that heavy metal music in their base?
Blue cumdoll a cutie!
>>253346720Anon it happened in the sen arc which automatically makes it instantly shit to /fg/ because they can’t think for themselves
>>253347243They also mention suspicious genres as being from other regions at some point, don't they? Maybe that just came up in III; I can't remember. IV also has what seems to be Jona's preferred music playing in his area. Anyway, I just don't get why people would make a distinction. To me, the school festivals shouldn't exist at all. They're such embarrassing Japanese intrusions into the setting. All the bathing is dumb, but public bathing is at least something with ancient global traditions.
>>253347917>They're such embarrassing Japanese intrusions into the setting.No they're not. Plenty of places have special events and/or celebrations at schools. Like, did you never have Halloween parties or field days during grade school?
>>253348320Let's not pretend these are anything other than straight recreations of anime school festivals. They don't make any attempt to disguise what they are.
"Haha, I always knew that guy would become a tranny."
>>253348617Of course, he saw Saltman mess with his mind and dress him up as a girl many times.
>>253348617Falcom loves their scenes of villans looking at the main characters at a distance
>>253348514I don't know what school you went to but mine used to do this kind of shit all the time.
>>253348914I'm sure your contrarian take will gain lots of traction.
What is this?
>>253348514>Let's not pretend these are anything other than straight recreations of anime school festivals.Japan isn't the only place to have school events, man. My high school had pep rallies, school dances, holiday events, and assemblies all the damn time. It's nothing special. The only standout thing about anime school festivals compared to events over here is that they feature this bizarrely tryhard collectivism that's more prominent in Japan than anywhere else.
>>253348897Everyone with taste mentally puts Joshua in girls clothes >>253306770
>>253348908Loewe is basically just TitS' Crow, except he actually dies.
>>253349573Crow is tits Joshua. Loewe is split between McBurn, Rufus and his own grave.
>>253343954Just go with Fie since she's the best. There is no canon, Falcom won't make any of the girls the "main" waifu since it'd just piss off everyone else.
>>253349573>even give him the same trench coat and sob story
>>253343954>but i'm a sucker for "canon"How boring.>Hey guys should I pick the option I really like or the one whose who the box because LOLCANON.
>>253349234looks like overpriced garbageis that some actual rare collector's item?
>>253350160Listen i never asked to be this way, i'm probably just gonna go for what i like. And i did preface the post with saying i'm retarded so i don't know what you were expecting.
>>253343954If you're actually going for canon in the first game's choice, you have to pick Crow because that's the only one with any kind of callback later.
>>253329249On the whole Joshua is the kind of character I think annoys me the most in anime/jrpgs.>Oh Im only like 16 but Im the super strongest most powerful assassin ever but I look like a twink and I have a scary sounding nick name that people call me by.
>>253350151Loewe is already a retread of a previous LoH character himself.
>>253350947He's only strong because he was trained by Ouroboros and even then, he's one of the weakest when it comes to direct combat. They even went of of their way in SC2 to point out that Joshua didn't become stronger when he went rogue and it was all technique.
>>253351307>and it was all technique.That's retarded.
>>253351307Yeah, but let's be honest: that's all bullshit. No one in Trails talking about how weak they are can ever be taken seriously.
>>253342739That would be a pretty bad business decision. The only reason why Xseed localised TitS was because there were a few fans in the company pushing for it and they're all gone.
>>253351231What game is this?And are the pre Sky games worth playing even with the shitty translations?
Chaos Brand (confusion debuff) is insanely overpowered in FC. These two bosses basically kill each other in a few turns, even on nightmare. Actually, ESPECIALLY on nightmare. Nearly 1000 self-inflicted damage per turn.
So this is probably a retarded question but in Zero do the lines in the Enigma mean anything? Because outside of elemental slots I've just been slapping shit wherever. Maybe it was mentioned in a tutorial but I wasn't paying to close attention.
>>253351307Probably picked up a tip or two from living with Chaddius
>>253351307Nah he isn't weak, sen cast is just too overpowered
>>253354217It’s the same as in sky, if you put certain septith elements in the same line you unlock different arts
>>253354217You mean the different lines, like line 1, line 2? It's the same thing as the Sky games, only slots on the same line will count for spells.
>>253354673>>253354596got it. thanks
>>253353958The one in the screenshot is Legend of Heroes IV: Tear of Vermillion.>And are the pre Sky games worth playing even with the shitty translations?The short answer is no. The long answer depends on how curious you are about where Trails got a lot of its lore and scenario ideas.
Where do you find the falcom calendar of events?
>>253342739You're only hope of getting this is if falcom decides to release collections of these games on a modern day platform. Or if Aidos blesses us with full 3d remasters of the earlier games in a modern game engine.
>>253343954>Retard Lol fie is perfect for you
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. XSEED BOOTH IS FUCKING HUGE... THEY'RE GON ANNOUNCE SOME EPIC SHIT BROS!!!
>beat that fucking worm/crystal boss thing in Nightmare boss rush first try in OathI knew dying to him all those times on Inferno would pay off
>>253355753Yeah, just like last year. Haha...
>>253355990#1First of all, I still think it's too early to announce it and it's not happening any soon but we can't just ignore what's right in front of usALSO SPOILER WARNING FOR THE PREVIOUS GAMES I GUESSSo, on XSEED's press release for their E3 lineup announced they used the following headlineXSEED GAMES CORRALS AN ECLECTIC MIX OF GODS, LEGENDARY HEROES, VAMPIRES, STUDENTS, AND ANTHROPOMORPHS FOR E3 2018At first it might only see them referring to the games lined up to be playable during E3 but when you think a bit more about it there seems to be too many similarities to what's in Cold Steel 3Gods might be a reference to Sakuna Rice and Ruin and might be the flimsiest one out of all of these in its connection to CS3 but ancient Gods mentioned in the Black records in the previous game are very relevant to the plot of the 3rd gameThe most obvious one is clearly the "Legendary Heroes" bit that could reference either Fate/Extella Link or the title of the greater series Trails is a part of, The Legend of HeroesVampires might be a reference to Gungrave VR (i'm not really sure about this) but could be a reference to the Vampires that appeared in a book series in the first CS and seem to make an appearance for real in the 3rd gameStudents feels a bit odd because it seems to talk about both Senran Kagura and Gal Metal. Or the fact that you play as a teacher in CS3 going on field trips with your StudentsAnd last, while Anthropomorphs might seem to be talking about the newly announced Freedom Planet for Switch, it could also be talking about our beloved Mishy, Falcom and Mishelam's mascot that makes an appearance in CS3What could this all mean? Are they trying to hint at the game coming eventually? Are they just trolling us after bothering them so much? Or is this all just a big unfortunate coincidence?
>>253356083Haha, that's our Reddit... :3
>>253355753>College Game Competition/Gaming Lifestyle Pavilion Gay.
>>253355753Can’t wait for absolutely fucking nothing as xseed is actually basically dead
>>253355753This image perfectly sums up the rotting corpse that is E3.
>>253355753Gee wiz Nintendo why does your mom let you have 2 booths
>>253355753When's E3 happening anyways
Will we get a CS3 release date at E3?
>>253359351Between September 23 and December 22. I doubt it gets released in November or October to compete with the other AAA garbage, so I assume it'll be at the end of September.
>>253359351Amazon UK say SEP 6th
>>253359750So do the online stores in my country, so it's probably a placeholder date.
what do you do in this situation?
>>253360170Turn 360 degrees and walk away.
Honestly a single Final Fantasy has more memorable moments than all of CS and nothing in CS has wow'd me the way the meeting with Tritoch in the opening of Final Fantasy VI, when Sapphire Weapon attacks Junon or when Seymour summons Anima for the first time or really a million other things from the series. Don't think it's really an issue of budget as it is an issue of poor writing. I just don't think Falcom cares about this series anymore.
To:253361357Doesn't even deserve a (you)
>>253361357Now that's stirring the hive. I like it.How much you wanna bet half the people reading that shit don't even know what any of those scenes are?
estelle just dabbed on wald
>>253360170Sexually distract her so she doesn't realize it's not her bedroom
>>253361357Don't talk like Final Fantasy has actually decent writing. Yeah it has those big fancy set pieces but that's all they are. A fancy looking moment they can stick in the trailer. Final Fantasy never puts any thought into how to connect these moments or what they really mean in the greater sense of the narrative. For example, you have a big shocking reveal that your summons have erasing your memories but you only forget things that are narratively convenient and that's just from minimal use. The characters never stop to notice that they're missing huge chunks of their memory and you never forget anything since the actual start of the game which doesn't make sense with the amount of summons you actually use. At best you get some fluff dialogue to try and BS it away but it doesn't change the fact that it's poorly thought out and inconsistent.
>>253362439you just described final fantasy 8 as if that was the entire series
>>253362106I think I hate Estelle. Maybe this would be different if I played Sky first but frankly I doubt it.
>>253362680Crossbell Estelle is way, way more likable than XSEED Estelle.
Why would start a book anywhere else but at page 1?
>>253362652I was just using it as a stand out example. 10 is also full of retarded bullshit. Everything about the Dream of the Fayth is just inane. Wakka's entire motivation is retarded especially when he can't even a tell what an Al Behd looks like if they spat on him. Yuna and Tidus's entire relationship is flat and one dimensional, and no, the laughter scene INTENTIONALLY being grating doesn't magically make it not so.Oh and then there's the fact that with so many summoners running around it renders your entire pilgrimage pointless and idiotic when there's no shortage of summoners eager to throw their life at Sin by shifting the burden of responsibility from a noble tragic sacrifice to a 100 yard dash off a 50 foot cliff.But yes, the Anima summon LOOKED cool. Sure is impressive what a huge budget and CGI cutscenes can do.
>>253362816If this is here being WAY more likable then I don't know if I even want to go near Sky.
>>253362439FF started in a time when vidya didn't have gigabytes of memory to dedicate to dialogue and story. Of course it's gonna be a set piece-centric series. That was the best you could do for the time.
>>253363303Okay? And that makes the recent installments not shit how? You don't have those excuses anymore, and haven't for a long time.
For me it's Planescape Torment.
i can't believe estelle had to drop a TL note mid sentence
>>253363467I'm not defending its recent installments. But at the same time, I can't say FF6, FF7, or FFT were badly written for their time.>>253363870Ha! Of course you were gonna screencap that.
>>253363116>But yes, the Anima summon LOOKED cool. Sure is impressive what a huge budget and CGI cutscenes can do.That's not why it's a good scene but okay
>>253364073Wiegraf did everything wrong.
>>253363973Well, I mean, that's pretty garbage, it if mean Black Auction just put Black Auction as the translation. TL notes are often a pretty yikes thing to do when translating.
>>253362106she dabbed on whole Crossbell at once
>>253364689Auktion is pronounced "awk-tsee-on", though. Those gosh darn krauts. They need to activate their Windows and spell better.
>>253362680>he actually didn't play sky before Crossbellshit nigger what are you doing
>>253365468Not playing Sky because fuck your stupid incest bullshit.
>>253362106Look at all those levitating fatties.
What is his fucking problem?
>>253365710No good enough justifications to go 200% ALL OF ME nor opponents to do it against
>>253362439I'm so sick of discussing FF8, but the memory loss was only used as a plot device to show you the sacrifices Cid is willing to let SeeD make in order to defeat Ultimecia. He knows the cost of power and is trying to hide the truth, all because he needs Squal and co to be strong enough to defeat Ultimecia/future sorceress. All their early memories have been consumed, so it seems GFs gradually eat their earliest memories and make their way up. You meet various NPCs throughout the game that claim to know you, but Squall can't recognize them. The memory loss itself has no impact on the plot, and the main difference would just be that the kids from the orphanage would recognize each other from the start, though Squall probably wouldn't hesitate to shoot Edea either way. Cid would still have Quistis demoted, Selphie transferred and Irvine assigned as a sniper because the orphanage group has to be together to stop the sorceress.

>>253366580Who cares? CS3's coming out in a few months. People who wanted to play Crossbell have already done so, and an official localization is more likely than the Geofags ever getting anything done.
>>253366710Because the game is using a ridiculously early translation draft that wasn't meant to be released to the public.
how much Elie can one Eliefag produce?

Question: Where is the english option in the Tokyo Xanadu menu?
>>253380312I'm serious, my tokyo xanadu came in from gamestop and everything is in jappo
>>253380583The game is called Tokyo Xanadu, in order to give you the authentic Tokyo experience, it has to be in Japanese.
>>253380583Is this PC or Vita? Was it a Steam key or something else?
>>253381047Hm, dunno. I wasn't aware you could change text language. Do you see anything like 日本語 on the options screen?
This fight right here is number one bullshit on Nightmare.>both bosses get to attack twice in a row unless you have 18 Speed or Clock Up Ex on all characters>deal 500 damage per attack>can gang up on anyone and kill them through Earth Guard before you get a turn>immune to all status ailments>specifically need Action 2 and Cast 2 on all three party members to stand a chance in the slightestWhat were they thinking?
>>253381635I don’t think they intended you to do nightmare on the first play through
>>253381414They gave me a Jap version of the game. The U.S vita cart is blue while mine is red......

why does kiseki love the word “information” so much
>>253382163>>253380583I don't believe you. Post picture
>>253382194You have to kill them in a short window because they get a 50% boost to Speed and Strength when one dies. With Clock Up Ex, I could spam Earth Wall with Estelle every round and just stay alive while getting them both down to 200 HP before killing them.I tried a shitload of times without the Action 2/Cast 2 setup and it was completely impossible. Like 0% chance of victory.
>>253381635>>253382194>>253382465nvm I'm retarded, you obviously already did that. Good job. There aren't many fights in FC that rival that one.protip:you should be able to go to the corner with one character, bodyblock with two others so they can't reach the cornered one (only 1 range melee attacks) and then chip down with arts.

>>253382323I wasn't kidding
>>253383264Well, take it back. Now you have your very own meme story.
>>253383264So take it back and tell them they gave you the wrong one
>>253383264>FUCKING GAMESTOPAlso why would you get it on Vita when PS4 has the by far superior Ex+?
>>253383264You bought pre-owned.
>>253383264power to the players
>>253383264>VLJM-35262You bought the Japanese version.
>>253383438tfw I have both the vita and PS4 version
>>253383865Same, I knew they were going to localize the PS4 version too but I didn't feel like waiting half a year.
>>253383425>>253383428only one store had it in a 50 mile radius and gamestop's replacement policy is fucking stupid. They'll replace it if they have other copies in store.>>253383438Cuz I mainly play mobile since I don't have a lot of time to play on the big screen.
I hope this actually happens somehow
>>253384280I would think selling someone a copy of a foreign media product without clearly labeling it as such is their mistake and they should pay for it. Maybe suggest that it looks a bit like fraud.
>>253383142This. No one cares about the gameplay in CS. It's all about the waifus.
>>253384734The thing is they're not supposed to take foreign games at all but this must've slipped through cuz they didn't do their job and test it.
>>253385068Yeah I've gotten a Jap game from game stop once by mistake
Time to go lads>>253385553>>253385553
