>New Rune Factory>no pantsu
Hear me out>spinoff is set in the past>young Misasagi is a marriage option since she hails from the East
I didn't watch the presentation and was spamming F5 until one of you faggots made a thread so you could spoonfeed meWhat the fuck did I miss about rune factory?>>638353965Is that a rune factory?>>638354243Did they completely remake 5 and made wolf milf fuckeable?pls respond
>>638353965Western release will be censored.
>>638354326Spinoff set in the Far East, presumably like Tides in that you have a central village/farm and a bunch of sky islands you explore on a dragon. Had gameplay which assumes it's much further along compared to when RF5 was first teased. RF6 is coming but will likely be like 2025-2026.
>>638354326They announced a feudal Japan spin off and RF 6 (logo only).
>never lets you actually romance the dragonWhat's the point?
>>638353965>not hebethis franchise is losing its soul
>>638354326New genshin of the wild spinoff featuring xenoblade 3 MC and RF6 announced
>>638354523RF6 will have a big titty ara ara milf dragon representing the love aspect, trust the plan.And trust the pattern that she won't be weddable either.
>>638354656>sky islands and riding a dragonSurprisingly they got a lot of Tears of the Kingdom right.
This feels like they took the Kazuha is the main character meme seriously and made an entire game about it.
>>638355854Imagine if they took romance the dragon meme seriously
>>638353965Stop doing spin offs trying to go away from the core gameplay, it just doesn't work, put all the fucking resources into the main line god damn.
>>638356141The last time they put all their fucking resources into the main game, we got RF5. As it turns out, with enough resources, they are actually shit at their job.
>>638356406And still sold enough to merit making 6, i preffer one mediocre game over two shitty games that split their budget
>>638356406Eh, RF5 futureproofed a lot of assets in regards to icon art and monster/item models. I imagine it should help the development process along even if just a little bit.
>>638354243They'll never do it. Their intention it seems is to finally tie all Rune Factory incoherent storylines together. Marrying Misasagi would break the 5th lore.
>>638356940Technically, it doesn't have to. It just means Protag-kun dies.
>>638356406RF5 was their first jump in the main series to full 3D with a new engine and everything, RF6 is likely to be much better optimized, and probably on a newer console as well.>>638356603Frontier is the best game in the series in everything other than the Runey system, Tides isn't bad either, Dragon is probably gonna be good with that track record in spin offs.
All I'm saying is, they better have a dedicated jump button this fucking time. Why make a fucking 3D game in a 3D world on a 3D engine and not have a fucking jump button, regardless of how "useful" it is? Even faggot-ass WoW lets you jump. My goodness, what a shit show.
>>638353965I still have not played 5, every time i think of picking it up i remember how livia, elsje and hina cannot be married and it physically hurts me. Now 6 has been announced so a 5 dlc is pretty much deconfirmed.
>>638353965At least it looks better than 5
>>638356723It's kind of amazing how long they used rf1 assets. Like monsters in rf4 had the triangle feet because they just ported over fucking everything
>>638356141You don’t know what you’re talking about, retard.
>>638357129Same, but I just don't want to deal with the faggotry. I don't want to be hit on by every single girl and I hate yuri so god damned much
>>638353965>we want the genshin impact audienceIt's so fucking over it's not even funny
I hope romance is still optional, not like 3 when you had to marry and move on (and as such I never finished the game, as none of the girls were likeable enough to hurt the others feelings by marrying, except the item shop owner, who was unromancable)Also fucking let me marry the milfs
>>638357057Yes but it would also means Hina look would have to change. She has pink hair after all. Also I'm not sure in what timeline I read it, probably during the romance scenes with Fuuka, but I think Misasagi mentions her husband being also a were-animal. She also mentions him being a drunkass.
>>638357561Genshin + "we took a peek at ToTK development and copied them"At least it looks better than 5
RF5 was embarrassing, do you think they learned their lesson in this one?
>>638357983Honestly? Yes. They seem to care about feedback.
>>638353965For some reason I have a feeling there won't be any romance in this game.
>>638358067There literally will be like every game. They already confirmed it.
>>638358067>how to kill your game speed run
>>638358067That's a retarded take. The game even seems to have both the female protagonist and male protagonist co-exist like Oceans.
>>638358457Marrying Sonja was so based, story of seasons should standarize this too.
>>638358457Oceans may as well have not had romance. Also playing as Sonja afterwards felt based.
>game is set in not japan because they brought in the guys that did Sakuna to make an autistic rice farming simulatorTime to collect the anime girl poop to feed your crops
>>638357983Other than the game breaking bugs that plagued it at release, most other things would have been OK if it wasn't for the last addition of gay shit. The dialogue got mixed and you had same sex characters flirting with you even though you weren't interested. I don't really care if they add gay shit, but they need to unironically do it like Bioware does and make characters that are specifically gay (preferably the more ugly ones). Another problem is that the game was too short compared to RF4 but without those issues it's not a bad game.
>>638357561Ironically would still work out better than rf5
>>638357983They're gonna double down on catering to otome and fujo stacies while giving no fucks about anyone else.
>>638358851Gay shit was added only because Xsneed suggestions
>RF5 was so successful it funded the sequel and a spin-off/v/ BTFO. Next time try shilling good games instead of flopped garbage, lmao
>>638359239Will they stop listening to Xsneed this time though
>>638359239Which makes me think it being based in Japan is a middle finger to them as RF5 was based in something overtly European.
>>638359307I doubt it because Xseed is a Marvelous subsidiary, but I think there was some push back from the Japanese fanbase because even they saw the gay shit was a waste of time over adding more romance options.
You guys think this will run on the switch? With how shit rf's coding has been it got me wondering if they can put it there. Unless this is for the Switch 2.
>>638359156Otomes hated that the guys were made gay though
>>638359453>waste of time over adding more romance options.Worse, they actually scrapped dragon romance to work on the gay shit. The game files + voice already there they just need to code it
>>638359686All the games have been coming to PC so it's safe to say these will too. Switch install base is probably too big to not release RF6 on even if the new console is out in 2025.
>>638359686Probably at 10-20 FPS. What we briefly saw looks too smooth and AA'd for it to be the Switch version.
>>638359453Game had enough romance options, considering how much more complete dating and romance events are in RF5 than in previous games in the main series.Also Japanese are perfectly fine with gay options in their games. These games have a lot of fujos playing them. I wish I could ignore it since it kinda ruined the pacing due to events excluding each other but other than that who gives a fuck, stop being so insecure lol
>>638359710Otomes do prefer their men to be straight, maybe occasionally dipping their toes into homosexual-like things; example being slapping butts during a football game.
>>638359710>>638359886What are you even talking about now? If a girl was playing the game to romance the guys, she'd never see them act gay because they can only be gay for the male MC which she wouldn't be using.
>>638353965I wish they didn't go for the ultra generic genshin style.
>>638360107Nip women hated the sudden inclusion when it happened. Even if they won’t directly see it, it makes the events not special anymore because they say the same thing to a guy.
>>638360229>>Nip women hated the sudden inclusion when it happened>source: my ass
I can't believe they fucked up 5 so badly that I'm not excited for two new RF games and instead wish we could just bury the corpse of the series again instead. I have no faith in this being a good rune factory game and even less faith there will be one good female marriage candidate.
>>638360363Hope is the first step on the path to disappointment.
Imagine shitting your pants for 2 years praying for the series to die because they wont let you fuck the milf only for this to happen.
>>638359876I consider that I don't shit on RF5 as much as everyone that just hates gay shit but you're being a faggot. Romance events weren't as good as for example RF ToD. Bachelorettes did had more depth and even I ended up liking Beatrice who at first sight I thought was going to be boring. All of them were pretty charming in their own way, but it wasn't a more "complete" dating and romance experience. You're just shilling at that point.
>>638360331Why are you arguing when you obviously don’t care, retard? You can start by checking the 5ch otome RF threads if you’re actually interested in their reactions.
I see Japan has fallen
>>638354326>Did they completely remake 5 and made wolf milf fuckeable?no, enjoy your fag marriage on RF Dragons and RF6
>>638360363It does look like RF5 did some damage, since I recall there being far more hype for RF5's announcement, but here we just got two games and nothing.
>>638359859Didn't rf5 run like shit even on pc? I'm not looking forward to how shit it's gonna run.
>actually giving a shit about troon factory in 2023
Will there be gay marriage?
>>638360418Can't be disappointed if you have no hope. Eh what am I saying of course I'll still be disappointed. Put out 3S and a remake of 1 in the 4 engine and put the series to rest forever. Maybe a straight port of oceans that changes nothing except the farming system.>>638360552Everyone knows better after seeing what happened with 5.
Rune Factory 5 special liviabros, trust the plan!
>>638353965Are the waifus shit again?
>>638360637It will be illegal not to have it
>>638360634There's not a single troon in RF. You're probably thinking about Fire Emblem Engage
>>638360593It runs well, but feels more like that it does so because PC specs are so much more powerful than the Switch's rather than it being optimized particularly well. Only had 2 crashes in 80 hours.
>No hags againstill won't buy
>>638360637anon, Marvelous is controlled by Xsneed now, so of course they're going to ruin this and the new SoS with fag marriage.
>>638354715*Inser anakin i hate you pic*
>>638358024fucking lmao you are a clinical retard if you believe that
Fucking RF Project Dragon is looking really good, and I'm not even a RF fan.
My love, Dolce.
I just want a shota dragon desu
>>638360772Surely they will let us romance hag this time
>>638360836Bokujou Monogatari has had it since the 2000s.
after how fucking shit the romance options in 5 were I hope this franchise just dies alreadyfuck a company and team that isnt willing to listen to fan feedback
>>638356723>>638357394Why didn't they just use Frontier or Tides assets? Games both looked pretty great, hell one of them was on the fucking PS3. Why go back to DS graphics?
>>638360940They won't but girls will be able to marry the dilf.
>>638358024>They seem to care about feedback.only if your feedback asks about your wish to be a fagtranny. if your feedback asks them to fix the fucking game or let you fucking loli dragons if your bwc, they'll just delete and ignore it.
>>638361074I love how some nips are still complaining that they don’t want 3D RF when they probably never played Oceans or Frontier.
>>638360940They will probably because americans complain about the characters looking too young in 5, only lolifags will get screwed, enjoy your globalhomo rune factory
>>638361252I want more pretty boys not old men
>>638361346It still baffles me how RF5 went so bad when Oceans and Frontier showed that the team had no issues with 3D.
>>638361252You know what, give me a suave dandy old man and I'll take it
>>638361464First game after the team back from the dead. Probably outsourced a lot
>>638361252Isn’t Japan the reason there are no romanceable hags? It feels like the player base there doesn’t want older women, only lolis.
>>638362057but they don't even give us lolis lol
>>638362152Probably because of the west
I have zero hopes and expectations.RF5 killed any goodwill I had for this series.Most certainly still won't be able to marry lolis, hags or even dragons. And will be full up the ass with more yume pandering. And there won't be an option to not being hit on by the same sex too for sure.What a shame.
>Waaaaaahhh I hate hate gay people!!Grow up.
>>638362580Democracy is majority rule
>>638362580I hate gay people when they got romance options before dragon and hagfagsyes
>>638361464>the teamRoughly half of the development team from neversoft either never made it to marvelous or left after lord of magna
>>638360752Not yet there isn't. The trannies at XSNEED have the power to make it so though, see how the got them to waste time adding pointless fag shit to RF5 when it originally wasn't there.
>>638355854I don't know where you saw Kazuha in that trailer unless you think every japanese guy is based on him.
>>638360506I'm just comparing mainline games, I explicitly said main series because I don't disagree with you about ToD.Spin offs both have better writing than any of the mainline ones, I consider RFF peak RF in the first place so 3 and 4 were already a downgrade for me.
>>638363605RFF was peak
>>638360968Imagine saying that after the garbage that 4's romance options were.
>>6383638144's weren't good either but after so many games of feedback of no hags they have no excuse for 5Especially when Misasagi's marriage dialogue is in the game and just cut content
>>638357861She and protag never had kids or their kids died, she had a kid with another guy later.
2 was the peak because you can cuck your friends in the middle of their marriage ceremony
wtf i didnt hear about this at all someone else that knows i like rune factory had to tell me
>>638364030Is that even true.I know it is for the Dragon.
>>638364415You like Rune Factory? Then tell me about Rune Factory 5
>>638364415It was just announced like 2 hours ago
>>638364514wellllll not that one... i remember watching the reveal cycle and hoping it would be 3d like frontier because that is the most beautiful game to me in the series and then they revealed the game and i was so disappointed. i pirated 1.0 and beat it but its not a game id replay
>>638364474yes, she has "I love you" and shit dialogue that shows she was initially a love interest
>refuse to 5>rf dragon already looking better than 5can't wait for 6 trailer, rune factoryGOD eating good
>>638364208I would either kill myself or murder the both tbqh
>>638365467yes I can't wait for the gay factory 6 trailer.
>>638364883Well that sucks.Still a better cast than 4.
>>638365467the biggest problem with 5 came from how quickly they tried to scale things up. 4 was building up with assets from 3 previous games and they immediately tried to reach the size of 4 but with new assets and 3d on a scale they have never even attempted before. There needed to be a smaller spinoff game before 5 to have a foundation.
Thoughts on the new MCs designs?
>>638366571Post em. I thought femc from 5 was much better than 4
>>638362580I am though
>>638353965I blame XSEED for this
>>638366264Good point. Optimistic for 6.
>>638366571Not a fan. Too overdesigned for my farming game.
>>638357983They had a decade after 4 to learn that people wanted to fuck the dragon and they still didn't let you fuck the dragon, what do you think?
>>638359876>Also Japanese are perfectly fine with gay options in their games.They're fine with gay stuff existing. They're not fine with development resources being wasted on adding gay shit to pander to Americans instead of fixing the game.
After the absolute disaster that was RF5 I have no hope left for the development team. I'll just buy the RF3 remake and be done with them.
>5 is...le badDoomposters lost and RF5 sold more on switch than on steam, cope pirate pcfags
>>638368517Nigga the company litteraly died in that time. Pretty sure they were preoccupied with other things
>>638368661That's a 5ch thread, it means shit.RF5 debuted in Japan with over 100k sales just on the physical side, RF4 debuted with 140k total iirc, and that was on the fucking 3DS.They clearly didn't care about the gay characters, no one actually cared in the west either other than retards here, the performance issues are the actual problem for the game.
>>638370223You know RF5 didn't have any gay characters until they patched it in half a year after it came out, right?>the performance issues are the actual problem for the game.Yes, that's exactly what was said.
>>638370467I actually forgot about that, you got me.It's still a 5ch thread lmaoAlso if you think actual resources were used in enabling gay marriage when they're literally the same events for both genders you're an idiot, they didn't fix the performance because they didn't care/couldn't do it.
>>638364126It's hard enough to have gays in the series, I will not tolerate cuckoldry
>>638370735Were you in that thread where an anon translated every comment on twitter when the jp account announced the same sex patch? That one had controversial reception too.
>>638353965Please be good. Trailer seems alright except for the comically bad mouth flaps.
>>638357075Tides of Destiny even had a jump button.
>>638357443Femanons don't exist.
Who will show up in 6?
>>638371149The most popular I guess. For RF3 it was Raven so she appeared on RF4. For RF4 was Margaret so she appeared on RF5. I think Fuuka is probably the more popular one from a poll I saw a while ago.
As long as it has more cute boys I will continue to buy.
>>638371293There's no way Margaret was the most popular RF4 girl. She was the dedicated main girl but there's no way she was popular.
>Feudal JapanFucking boring. I understand the reason, but that setting (outside Medieval Europe) is the most overused in this kind of games.Wild West Rune Factory when?
>>638371485you have to consider >available from the start>not a loli>most normal personalityshe appeals to the lowest common denominator
>>638371293Leon and Amber were the most popular bachelor/ettes according to an old jp poll iirc. The only reason Doug and Margaret were chosen was because they had long lifespans, and RF5 takes place decades after 4. Though I don't ever remember dwarves living long lives.
>>638371485I would have chosen Margaret if Xiao Pai didn't exist
>>638371862I forgot fucking Doug was in RF5. You fags really gonna try and tell me that Doug was the most popular boy in RF4?
>>638371149man the wives in this one were fucking shitThe guard elf was the only remotely decent one
>>638371862Rune Factory 5 is set 10 years appart from 4. No one is dead dude.
Hag CHADS have been waiting since the first game.Lolicucks leave.
>>638372273>Hag """chads""" have been begging since the first game and still haven't gotten a single hag to marry
>>638372443You'll eat up those words when Dragon reveals a hag dragon you can marry.
>>638372234Dog was cute until they ruined it by having her speak your language instead of you slowly understanding her barks.
>>638371149>Still haven't played 5>Girl I wanted to marry is the succ>She apparently doesn't even show up until like arc 2 of the storyWhy did they wait so late?
>>638353965>Rune Factory but GRORIOUS NIPPON
>>638372690She gets the last reveal but the game is so short it doesn't even matter
>>638372690dev team must have had a lot of leonfags
>>638354620That's the femc dumbass
I'm excited for the three unmarriable dragons
So I'm still playing RF4, what is wrong with RF5?
>>638362580Gay should just get a gay game instead. Literally everyone wins when niches are catered to.
>>638375262>first new title after devs wen bankrupt>marvelous bought them out and the producer/writer started a new studio under them>outsource the actual game to some no name dev that mostly used stock Unity assets>initial release runs like absolute shit. Sure it's the switch but the game is butt ugly runs under 20 fps any time something is happening on screen>gameplay is jank, bugs up the ass and minute long load time>a few patches but nothing really fixes the game>still the core is RF so it's somehow still enjoyable>queue XSNEED coming in and begging to them to add fag marriage for the western release. Hakama does it and back ports it so it poisons the JP version too.>didn't really fix the switch version, at least there's a PC version now but it still has bugs and jank up the ass
>>638375262Less content than 4 and Xseed managed to convince the devs to retroactively put gay relationships in the game. Xseed also fucked up with the dialogue triggers and made it so same sex characters always want to fuck you even if you aren't in a romantic relationship with them. The game also ran really really badly on Switch but if you play on PC then that's irrelevant. The gay shit and atrocious Switch performance basically ruined people's impression of the game. If not for the performance issues and gay shit, I think people would have settled on the game just being mediocre instead of awful.
>>638375746>>638376015are there any mods to fix the homo shit on pc?
is the gay stuff actually that annoying? i only played 1.0 on switch so i never saw any of it.
>>638376235It's annoying in the fact that you cannot really avoid it
>>638357983If they're still making it on the Switch, I kind of doubt they could fix the performance issues.I've learned my lesson and will be waiting for the PC port instead.
>>638376235Putting aside that it made the game even buggier by causing players to profess their undying love to characters they just met by showing them heart events as if they were dating already the same sex stuff was essentially forced.So if one wanted not to see any of it they would have to go out of their way not to interact with people and avoid areas in town where the event is tied to.Can't be friends with anyone without creating event minefields in town for yourself.
>>638372690You can beat the entire story during the summer of your first year, maybe fall if you don't prioritize doing story dungeons once they're available, I really wouldn't call it late.
>>638375262>Bad performance on the Switch, the game looks pretty ugly for a modern game>Not as much unique dialogue compared to RF4, so you'll start seeing repeat dialogue not even halfway into the first year>Story is pretty short, barely any end game content when compared to RF4Gameplay wise it's pretty much the same as RF4 though, even the crafting system is the exact same and you can make a busted weapon if you know what you're doing.
Can't wait for all the semen demons to not be romancable and for all the romancable women to be the mildest underaged children possible.
>>638360515And here I thought fujos were obsessed with faggotry?
So was there any good Story of Seasons info coming out? Or just a title drop like RF6?
>>638377657Not all women are fujos retardbro
>>638378081Otome shit is full of fujos, isn't it?
>>638378152otome = girl x malefujo = male x male
>>638375262On top of what the others said, it also looks like shit compared to the previous console games, and being a mediocre follow up to 4 after how long it took to come out only made it worse.
>>638378152Otome girls want to be a special girl surrounded by pretty boys who love them, if the pretty boys are getting with each other it diminishes the love for the otome girls.
>>638378290Frontiers has such a comfy colour palette
>>638370223RF5 Japan don't have gay shit initially you fucking negro gorilla dumbasses
>>638377925Just some generic imagery.You've got crops, chickens, sheep, cows, and seasons. Main characters look like Story of Seasons protagonists. Simply the title screen and "a new Story of Seasons is being made" is all that was really in the Marvelous showcase. Maybe someone who knows JP would be able to say more, but it looked like about as much information as with RF6.
>>638357983Considering it had best sales in franchise even when it was jp only switch exclusive? >>638358851Don't care about gay shit, never was a problemProblem was that game was generally boringWhen it's not interesting to run around the city and talk with people every day, you know that you fucked up your harvest moon/ rune factory game
>>638370940It surely cant be worse than Pokemon Arceus
>>638378823There's no gayshit when RF5 was jp only switch exclusive
>>638379005gay romances were added half of year before game went to west
>>638379101>half of yearAnd most of the sales were on first week, your point?
>>638379281Point is that you never even played game if you think that gay shit was the problem, and not shitton of actual design flaws
>>638379439Gay shit is still the major problem because they choose to add that shit instead of fixing the performance. It also adding more bugs that weren't originally there on top of that. Gay shit also waste resources that could go to cut content
>>638353965>New Rune Factory>Ryuu no Kuni/Country of Dragons>You can't romance dragonsWatch this be true
>>638378290I hope they don't outsource to HYDE again. Those guys are utterly incompetent as game devs.
>make a girl that is literally mindbroken by everyone wanting to fuck her mom>everyone still just wants to fuck the milfs
>succubus>not lewd at allImpressive
>>638380468>game pushes you to romance your rival>romance her dragon instead>she ends up romancing your dragon and now you two have the final fight anywayAlso, thanks for the title translation.
Will we FINALLY get to fuck the Dragon in Project Dragon?
>>638381624We are killing all the dragons.
>>638381624Yeah but it's going to be a boy
>>638360363Same. The announcement of 5 and 4 Special literally got me out of a bad time in my life, and it's kind of sad to see two new games announced and feel... nothing.
There is a new Rune Factory?
>>638382063Marvelous showed off the games they are working on. There's a new Story of Seasons, some action Rune Factory title, and Rune Factory 6. Here's a look at the action title, although RF6 is just a title image for now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHwuO5vNjic
>>638382373I really like the logo for 6
>>638382373>That frame rateIf they don't half ass the yuri shit then maybe ill buy it
>>638382672Hope you have ps5 for it
>>638382373Will that be PC day 1? I'm not playing a switch game at 15 fps
>>638382742Anon, Sony bought marvelous, there won't be switch games anymore...
>>638382373Genshinchads we fucking won
>RF6 is going to have western style presentationThis actually killed so much of my interest that was renewed with Dragon.
>>638382373There is also some kind of new Life Sim game that they're working on as well.
>>638383154Western as in western fantasy, IE every previous ruen factory game. It's not like they are gonna put in cowboys and mumble rappers lol
>>638383154Japanese style is garbage so I hope they never do this again

WTTTTFFFFFFFFF 2 NEW RF GAMESSSSSSSSSSS YESSSSS CANT WAIT TO PLAY 5 DAYS EARLY FOR FREE ON RYUJINX HOLY SHITTTTTTTTTTTTT I LOVE STRAWBERRY GIRL IN RF1 YOOOOOO LETS GOOOOOO
they need to go back and make shit simpler, maybe have some combat, but make the game about dungeon diving for farming stuff
>>638377517this but unironically
>>638353965Did western fags and trannies even like 5?
>>638386834It was because of the western sales that RF5 sold so much. In Japan it couldn't even beat 4.
Any tips for RF4S?
>>638379926Adding gay options probably took like a day of work of a fucking intern, it's literally just making the already existing events available to the other gender, they didn't even change the dialogue. You retards thinking it affected the performance issues is hilarious, they didn't fix them because they didn't want to.
>>638387330In Japan it sold almost the same as 4 in the launch weeks 100k physical (no idea about digital) vs 140k total. Keep in mind that 4 came out for the 3DS, which was bigger as well.Even then these games are niche in Japan already.
>>638387437Take NPCs with you to story dungeons since there's a lot of brief special/missable dialog to see.However to invite NPCs to go on adventures with you you need a FP level of 4 iirc with the exception of best girl Forte who will mamoru you from day 1.Try to win a fishing festival before doing the second dungeon. Just to make it easier on yourself.Tame a variety of monsters. Some of them offer produce while others are broken OP in battles.The crafting system has some nuance to it that allows you to make some stupid things later on in the game. May want to look up some FAQ for that eventually.
A reminder that 3 Special fucking bombed.Which I will attribute to people not digging the way the game looks and/or the goodwill being gone after 5.
>>638388202Not really3 was hares shit with very autistic and special girls to pander worst type of otakus with them, just like persona 3While majority of current fanbase were brought in by more tame girls from rf4, so 3 is kinda too much for them
>>638388202Yeah because it didn't have a female MC
>>638387437One of the hardest festivals to win is the Buddy Battle, since China mom (and the last Bachelor, unlocked from completing the 1st arc) use monsters that are strong as fuckA good way to make it easy for yourself is recruited Boss monsters; through a particular process, you can actually tame them. Look up a guide on taming them and what their favorite foods are, not just to win in the Buddy Battle, but also because they're fantastic NPC allies that stay relevant for a long time - my Ambrosia and Marionetta stayed with me through the first two arcs before falling off.
>>638387796>Adding cut content probably took like a day of work of a fucking intern, it's literally just making the already existing assets works with the rest of the game. You retards thinking that they don't want to is hilarious, they didn't code it because they busy adding gay romance to the game.
Dragons must die.
>>638388202It bombed because I'm poor and can't afford a fucking game.
>>638381321Ludmila was lewd but in a cute way.
>>638388202I didn't buy it because I'm not buying another RF game untill they redeem themselves
>>638383852>Lose profitIn Japan maybe, but not in the rest of the World.
>>638388202Its coming to steam, but some of the sprites in the screenshot look alittle funky and I dont remember them looking that way. Am I forgetting things, or did they change them?
>>638390442All the assets have been ran through a smoothing upscale like with RF4S.
>>638390442They don't have much to work with.Wish they ported Frontier or Tides of Destiny instead.
>>638378152Anon, otome is reverse harem shit. It's a separate category from BL/yaoi/fujostuff.
>>638390632That would've been fun, albeit alittle funky. Relearning the controls on a emulator was always a learning game after a few months of not playing.Both are pretty fun though. Rune Factory Dragon's combat slightly reminds me of ToD's Combat, which I strangely enjoyed. Of course >genshin combat, but we'll see.
since rune factory always has one token asian will rune factory japan have one token white girl?
Shit, I still not finish RF5 yet because I try to finish my coomer mod.
I should be happy, it's two games, but I'm not.Why did it have to be like this?
>>638391451Have yer elf.
When will we get a dark elf wife?
>>638392715Already happened in a spinoff
>>638358067pretty sure they explicitly said romance was still in in the presentation.
>>638358838>brought in the guys that did Sakuna to make an autistic rice farming simulatorI will now buy your spinoff.
>>638360752There's not a single Troon in Fire Emblem Engage, you're probably thinking about Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
>>638362212>No hags because of Japan>No lolis because of America>all romanceable girls are exactly 16 years old>Americans start seething about how even that is too young for video game romance charactersNot sure why devs even bother trying to pander like that.
I don't want another censored game guys. I'll just keep Pia in my heart.
>>638366571Guy feels a little too busy to be a self insert character. Girl better be romanceable.
>>638371149lol, you think they won't bring one of the dudes from 5 instead.
>>638371485>She was the dedicated main girlwhat the fuck really? I never got that from her at all. I don't think any of the RF4 girls had "main girl" energy, maybe Forte.
>>638354456That would be literally the best case scenario.In reality, the western release will have half the cast being made gay for no reason, and you'll inexplicably have the power to make any of them trans. This is totally what western players want and definitely isn't being forced upon them.
>>638371485What so interesting about her?
>>638358024>They seem to care about feedback.Funniest post I've seen in a while
>>638366571I've always wanted to romance the male MCs and while it looks like that will be possible here, his design is shit
It's not fair.
>>638395261Stop trying to go after kids, pedos.
I can't believe they announced TWO new games and I'm not excited at all. RF is the only series I have ever bought the physical versions.I'm never forgiving Marvelous.I can even see them adding gasha elements to not-Genshin
>>638395328Lol, fake fans outrage will never stop being funnyLiterally no different from twitter trannies
>>638376679>If they're still making it on the Switch, I kind of doubt they could fix the performance issues.The performance issues having nothing to do with the Switch hardware. RF5 is a horribly, horribly unoptimized game full of amateur level coding mistakes.I know I shouldn't but I'm willing to give them a pass because the entire team was unfamiliar with the engine. If it happens again there's zero excuse.
>>638360593>Didn't rf5 run like shit even on pc?I have a pretty beefy rig and it ran mostly well, though there's obviously a memory leak of some kind because the game starts to stutter after extended play sessions.
How long did it take people to learn that 5 was outsourced? Any way we can know before Project Dragon/6 release?
>hopeyou guys never learn, huh?
>>638395328But she is older than you? Amber however.....
>>638395995The official homepage should have the logos of all companies involved, gotta wait until it's online.Or maybe they won't show to avoid backlash for using the cheapest trash.
Stop lusting after old women.
Why is everyone so negative?Project Dragon looks mad hype, finally a RF game with competent graphics and combat, and it's japanese setting!
>>638397043>Why is everyone so negative?tortanic memes and tourists
>>638397043>Project Dragon looks mad hypeSame with 5, and see how that ended up>finally a RF game with competent graphics and combatNo way to actually know this until we see if its being worked in-house or out-sourced again.
>>6383971745 looks fucking barebones as shit.
>>638397174>Same with 55 never looked hype. People were just excited that the series wasn't dead. Anyone who was familiar with Frontier or Tides of Destiny immediately recognized that 5 was way behind the curve in terms of graphical fidelity so something was obviously off.
>>638397043It look like genshin.
Where do I start with Rune Factory if I never played it?I see RF3 is getting some special edition in few months, is a good start?
>>638397478https://arch.b4k.co/v/thread/546781921/#q546781921People looked pretty hyped to me.Back then when the biggest complains were Doug being a returning character and female characters looking bland.
>>638397665Start with 3, yes. Make Pia your wife.
>>638397665Play the one you want to play. It literally doesn't matter.
>>638397826I don't see hype. I see people excited about the series not being dead and a handful of people trying to claim waifus. Show me all the posts about being being excited about the quality of the game and not just "oh god it exists RF isn't dead."
>>6383976653 is where a lot of people started back in the day. It's good. 4 is also recommended, as it's similar but also larger in scope.
>>638397665RF is one of those series that gets progressively better with each new release(5 broke this trend but just ignore that for now.)All of the games are enjoyable and good if you're a fan of the farm sim genre but be warned that the later you start in the series the more difficult it will be to go back to older games. They added progressively better QoL features with each installment so trying to play 1 or 2 after playing 3 or 4 will make the games feel pretty jank. If you don't care about playing all of them then just start with 3 or 4.If you plan on playing Frontier, look up a simplified guide for Runeys or just play with a patch that removes/trivializes the system. If you're going to play Tides of Destiny be aware that the farming in that game is basically the black sheep of the franchise though everything else about it is solid. Don't start with 5 because it's possibly the worst first impression you could get for the series. It's not an awful game, it's just not anywhere near as good as it should be.
>>638397838>>638397860>>638398125>>638398241Neat, thanks for help Anons.
>haven't played 4>haven't played 5For some reason 3 was my absolute limit, you could break the game way too easily. I can see myself replaying 2 or frontier with runey hack fuck this shit but I just couldn't get into the newer games.
>>638398510>you could break the game way too easilyYou can break any RF game if you know what you're doing or if you just happen to get lucky and you get high level magic from a request reward.
>>638396576Amber is way older than you, all four of the unlockable townspeople are at least like 100+ years old.
>>638397838>Make Pia your wifeMarry Sakuya and you get Pia for free as an extra.
>>638398769>couldn't get a timeline where I marry ShinoI'm still mad about this
>>638398769>That smug Piacute
1, 2, Frontier and Oceans have the best cast of girls.3, 4 and 5 are just unremarkable
>>638398968>Rune Factory 5 literally lets you plow a dragon>you still can't marry the dragonwhat the fuck is their problem!?
>>638399242Marvelous unironically hates their own playerbase
https://youtu.be/N4NGndJUuMY?t=1311You guys probably will call me a shizzo because I cant really articulate it well, but I noticed that recently girls in vidya always seem angry.There is no softness to them. I especially noticed that in Xenoblade 3 too.Play a jap game pre 2010, the girl characters didnt act or look like that. Kinda unsettling.I notice it because I'm mainly playing old games on my emu machine.
>>638399415Eh i don't have a problem with more assertive girls, maybe stop being a sissy.
>>638381905Now THAT would be the obvious NTRing of dragonbros.I'm starting to thing the studio heads get off from taking away milfs and dragon pussy from players.
>>638399523Being into assertive girls is a pipeline to faggotry.Next you tell me I should like girls with abs lol
>>638399415How about assertive then become tame over time?
>>638399023You would expect that Oceans would be a lot more popular here with the people who are interested in romance. You pretty much have a bit of everything, even an "ara ara oneechan" that people here sometimes seethe about being denied in the main series.
>>638385229The sales were reflective of the positive reception RF4 got. Whichever game releases first will suffer the consequences of RF5 having horrible word of mouth.
>>638399784Fuck them for locking my wife so late into the game
>>638399784Mikoto should have been a boy
>>638382742>>638382818Will there be a PC port?
>>638399762Don't tempt me anon. That would be kinda hot, not gonna lie. Characters like that where popular in mid 00' if I remember it correctly.Dont see that trope much anymore.
>>638383154>>638383338A wild west rune factory would be great.
After seeing 5 I don't think I care anymore. I have no faith in them and I loved the series to bits and never even gave up hope for 5 happening.
>>638399784>even an "ara ara oneechan"Your forgot clumsy and the bar's whore. There's a reason why she's not popular.
>>638382818Kek, I fucking wish. These games are limited by Nintendo's shitty hardware. I wish Marvelous would just start developing for PC already so I get another reason to stop buying Nintendo consoles.
>>638400321>clumsyBut that only makes her better>There's a reason why she's not popular.Has there ever been a popularity poll with Tides characters? I know there are official ones for 3 and 4, but...
>>638400341All of marvelous game ended up on pc 6 months later
>>638401306Yeah, underwhelming versions because they were developed for the switch shitty hardware first. I meant actually developing for a stronger console/pc in mind instead of being limited for the switch capabilities.
All I want is some waifu variety for once. RF4 and especially 5 were awful with the selection.
No fat chicks
We'll finally get an older bachelorette, but she'll be from that family.
>>638371485I picked her because all the girls in 4 are pretty boring but at least she kind of looks like daria without the fun personality and likeable traits.
>>638401835>she kind of looks like dariaWasn't implied that Margaret and Daria were actually sisters?
>>638400321I will kill you for talking about my wife like that
>>638401981yes which is pretty much Margaret's only redeeming feature since all she does otherwise is nag everyone like a mom. Why were the girls in 4 so shit?
>>638402258Your wife is a retard, anon.
>>638402439She's also the only marriage candidate in the series above a C cup so I'm still winning
>>638401492Because you had to actually interact with them to see their real personality and weren't just a single gimmick like in 3. You dont find out Amber is a schizo pretending to be retarded until you try to marry her.
>>638402531>trading intelligence and usefulness for bigger titsYour children are going to be retarded anon don't do it.
>>638402593>letting competence determine who you marry in RF>>638402639I was thinking of her but maybe it's just her design that doesn't make them look as big. Plus she's from 2 so she might as well not exist.
>>638402854>she's from 2 so she might as well not exist.FUCK YOU
>>638399863RF5 didnt suffer from RF4 being a downgrade though, like cutting half the heroines to add faggots. 4 did it first yet faggots praise it to high heaven
>>638402978lol yeah yue is probably the standout from that game. How would you feel if she shows up in rune factory 日本 aged up 30 years or something?
>>638358024I told them to go fuck off for adding in homosexuality and pandering to the left. They just blocked me.
>>638353965I'm gonna start playing RF4 but only have a hacked 3DS. Is the 3DS version still worth it to play? Any tips for a total noob to this farming shit?
>>638403085Bad because returning characters aren't marriageable.They fucked me once already with Raven in 4.
>>638401431Switch shitty hardware made lower budget games viable
>love foxes>just want to marry foxes>they add TWO (2) foxes in 5>one is a loli and can't have>they other one is a widow so can't have eitherI'll go to Marvelous myself and punch in the face the retard who came up with this idea.
>>638400525>Has there ever been a popularity poll with Tides characters?The PS3 version of the game had a list of stats from the main menu. It covered a bunch of things but the only ones I remember are the list of marriage candidates by percentage, with Maerwen near the bottom, and a listing of the fastest main story clear times, with only like the first four entries having a time under the display cap of 99:59:59.It'd be interesting if someone archived those stats from before the servers went down.
>>638400924A girly girl, of course!
>>638396903>The official homepage>official
>>638399784Elena's in-game model always reminds me of Kingdom Hearts and I can't quite place why.
>>638404227Stupid anime hair + belts
Is that site with all the RF3 comics still around?
>>638399784>meet her for the first time>instantly falls in love with you What a fucking slut
>>638403147You could just play PC version with extra contents.
Do you remember the HYPE the threads had when they announced they were working on RF5? Compare it to now with TWO new games in the works. A real monkey paw.
>>638404828When I saw how ugly 5 was and how shit is ran I was pretty let down but foolishly convinced myself they'd fix everything. Then I see it STILL looked and ran like shit for the western release and to top it all off I heard the game was short, buggy and kinda shit.That was pretty fucking crushing.Now I just kinda wish the series stayed dead, at least that way I could have clung to the hope that one of my favourite series could return one day.Even if by some miracle this ends up being good I'm still not buying it because fuck xseed and their shitty translations.
>>638405427I'd tell you to learn Japanese, but by this point that can't save you.
I have so much Rune Factory to play. I only ever got to the start of the second arc in 5, I have copies of 1 and Tides of Destiny I've barely touched, and 3 Special comes out in a few months. Somebody send help I can't do this much farming on my own.
>>638405634I'd never be able to learn regardless, even my English is terrible so another language has no hope.
>>638403147>Is the 3DS version still worth it to play?Yeah but the Switch/Steam version is a direct upgrade.>Any tips for a total noob to this farming shit?Just do what you want. Plant a little bit of everything. If you ask for advice you're most likely going to get people giving you all the meta strats but the game is designed in a way that you can not fail. Literally everything returns a profit no matter what you're doing and the returns happen pretty quickly so try out everything. Grow multiple crops, go fishing, build some barns and capture a few monsters to see what materials they give, etc. It's all viable.
>>638353965Fucking hell, why can't new RF at least looks acceptable like that SEA indieshit Coral Island, with 50+ townies, from children to old ones, to make the town seems more lively. Been supporting the series since the first game, but the dev doesn't seem to be too keen on paying back their fans' good wills in a nice way.
>>638406337Anon the Dev were dead and just barely resurrected
>>638406337>Coral Island>western shit designsWho cares? Half those characters are most likely store-bought assets or come premade in some modeling software.
IT'S NOT FAIR
>>638371149I thought the autistic guard supposed to be a total washboard because she's a half-elf? Why does she sport some nice ones here?
Before anyone goes "uhh you could never marry a loli in RF bro"
But will RF dragons be in the same universe though?
>>638406337yeah i remember playing rf2 and thinking that it was kinda dull and lonely seeing the only 3 adult characters in that town huddling together during festivals. later games have lots of faceless npcs too, but yeah you don't get attached to them unlike with fellow named townies.
>>638406337>coral islandWow those are really nice 3D ma->the illustrationsPass
>>638406337Quality over quantity
>>638406337>Coral IslandAt least I'm glad RF hasn't fallen that low. Fuck those western designs.
>>638407617If she didn't have her retarded grandpa around her 24/7 maybe I would have gone for her, she had a pretty cute voice.
>>638409648this is unironical visual gore
>>638409648Surya looks like a serial killer.At least the Alice is cute.
>>638409648This is level of magnitude more revolting than Stardew Valley
>>638409648>>638409648Eh, fixable with mods.I don't like vanilla SV portraits either
I only played 3 because I wamted to fuck the witch girl is this new one like 3?
>>638353965yeah because rune factory 5 was soo good i cant wait for their next entry
>>638410374You know, the graphics are pretty bad but what kills me the most is that phone tier UIWhat the fuck were they thinking
>>638410524Small india company
>rune factory after 4Soulless, and you know xsneed will force in more gay marriage than proper loil dating
>>638399784I made the choco elf maid my wife, but honestly I could have gone several ways. I have a soft spot for Oceans, it has a weak farm game but I enjoyed my time with it and was surprisingly hyped about having them all chant during my giant golem fight.
>>638402978this hurts. I love Yue but I can't bring myself to play RF2 again. The QoL changes are too big between 2 and 3
>>638406337how bad could it b- >>638409648jesas
>>638411659Really? I played 1 and 2 last years and it wasn't that bad, I just keep mistaking the controls. The main problem with 2 is having pretty much half the game and most of crafting/cooking until AFTER your child, which is the most retarded decision they could have taken and to this day I still don't understand what they were planning with it.
>>638412095maybe it's not as bad as I remember, but yeah locking tools at tier 2 until you hit the time-skip was annoying as fuck.I think the main sticking point in my memory is the inability to stack different quality crops and other small things that were improved later on.
>>638413146I don't like the implications of Pia going around introducing other girls to the satisfaction of a squid.
5 was the first one I didn't buyno hags, no buy from now on
>>638353965They will fuck it up
So this will be for Switch 2?
>>638409648it's sad that this lgbtbbq diversity shit made by sea monkey devs looks more polished (with clearly more effort and expertise poured into it) than what rf devs can shit out with their superior nippon game tech.
>>638418115Why would somebody draw this?
>>638400924TomboyAll the wayGirly girls are retarded and shit tier
>>638417387Meh, I'd say RF is still there. Plus the trailer looked somewhat promising. If anything, the SoS team needs any help, badly.
>638420534If 5 didn't exist you would have been wrong......
>>638410524It's a Unity game lol and it shows. Looks like Steam early access shovelware.
>>638410524you know anon this game looks worse than a gamecube game and runs like shit on the switch. this makes me really sad because i really want to enjoy a new farming game but XSNEED is too incompetent. this sucks because there are some really cute lolis in the game
>>638422317Lets be honest, hakama did the dogshit game, and xsneed only exacerbated the problem
>>638416531Yeah probably Switch 2/Super Switch/whatever it's called. Otherwise they would have listed platforms.
>>638410524It's a holdover from the DS days but it actually made sense back then. Rune Factory UI really hasn't changed that much throughout the series which is a problem since we're no longer playing it on a touch screen handheld.
Do people even care about these anymore?
>>638425394Probably not because the HM fanbase has become so fragmented after corporate fuckups and competition becoming a thing.
>>638406337End your fucking life.
>>638425630Man, I really miss /rfhmg/.Good times that will never come back.
>>638426054Christ are you serious? That's not edited?
>>638353965Give me more upskirt shots. Are her undergarments 2hu qualified?
>>638357561>>we want the genshin impact audience>It's so fucking over it's not even funnyI hate Genshin. But if we got an offline, non-gacha "Genshin" game. That wasn't developed by China. I'd be pretty interested in that. The main problems with Genshin is its business model. And how other aspects such as progression and stuff also takes a hit from said business model.
>>638360363>and even less faith there will be one good female marriage candidate.Even RF5 meets this condition.
>>638426661Going to vomit.
I'd be more accepting of a couple of canonically gay characters. Like 1-2 gays and or 1-2 bisexuals. Instead of making 100% of the cast bisexuals. That's fucking ridiculous.
>>638426054I know they're supposed to be stretch marks but they look like a massive forest of pubes sticking out of her pants and I'd really like to know what the fuck the artist was thinking in either case.
>>638427279>what the fuck the artist was thinkingNo thoughts, head empty.
>>638426975wouldn't even be a top 10 girl in frontier
>>638427246You don't understand anon. Everyone needs to be gay/bisexual so a vocal minority feels represented.The best part about this is the faggots are sending the message that you can change anyone's orientation if you're persistent enough. Literally enabling the "she just needs a good dicking" meme.
>>638402546I'm talking purely from a design perspective.
>>638426054AHAHAHAHAHA look at the bush on this she-wolf. Fucking hell
>>638427645I meant what I said
>>638427585They're stretch marks.
>>638375262Still can't fuck dragons.
>>638426726The main problem of GI/HSR (H3rd is at least based) is their fucking fandom itself filled with normalfags and LGBTBBQs that are offended by absolute everything.
>>638424698The DS games had more appropriate UI art.
>>638427924Her sister is better
>>638426726What the fuck is a "Genshin" game even supposed to be? It looks like it plays like any other generic action game. I refuse to touch it because chink.
>>638429526Please throw out every appliance and anything else that's made in China right this instant, mutt.
>>638429364Why are the sisters always the best bachelorette*, no contender? *Except some god-forbidden reasons you can marry them, ffs
Xsneed employee tell your masters that nobody is excited for your homo shit games anymore.
No Livia romance, no buy.
>>638430703I will never not be mad. What's worse is how easily they could still get money if they had better wives. I would have bought 5 despite all the issues if i could marry big titty maid.
