Just played this for about an hour and half. Too early to tell its if any good but man it's definitely soulfulI'm open to any non-spoiler tips I should keep in mind going forward
>>9749552The game is absolutely amazing, but as time goes on you'll realize that the main character is absolutely retarded and acts like a constantly butthurt teenager with daddy issues. You ever play a game and have the MC say something utterly ridiculous to the point you'll go all "dude, just the shut the fuck up"? Will happen with Front Mission 3.Protip: rocket launchers on every Wanzer, they're OP.
>>9749573Yeah the main character sounds very poorly written, not sure if its translation or if he was intended to come off as an autistic sperg. The thing is, I don't even mind it honestly. Aesthetic and the soundtrack carry the experience so far, plus the other dude is charming enough
>>9749573He gets more tolerable as the story goes on to be fair. Hardly the best MC out there but at least he isn't pants on heads, let's-attack-a-military-base retarded
I didn't get far in it so no tips, but I love this series. Glad you are getting into it. Hope more remasters come.
>>9749552Front Mission 3 is the odd one out in the series with an hotheaded shonen protag. All the others have older characters already with some military experience. I wonder why they did this for FM3
>>9749573Also ROF1 is god. ROF1 is love, ROF1 is life
>>9751136ROFUP1, I meant
Every character has a specialty. MC is actually a melee guy, and the cop girl is a sniper
>>9749552I love the internet in this game, I am reticent to use the word, but it is extremely soulful.
>>9749552Which campaign is better?
>>9751315I went with Alisa route because the premise of the other one is super retarded>let's sneak into this military base with wanzers, sounds like a really bad idea but holy shit this blonde chick is so hot, we should totally do what she says
>>9749552Great game, but this one right here boi!
>>9751490>the game that isn't translated is the best one, trust me
>>9751523Anon it takes place in Africa.
>>9749552That web music is baller.
>>9751539I wonder if they're even going to bother making the full web 1.0 internet for the remake.
>>9749552Haven't played this one since it originally came out but I remember it feeling like it ended just as it really got good.
>>9749552Ready for the remake?
>>9751301I used him as a shotgun/melee guy personally.>>9751464Yeah but at the same time I found the Emma story more interesting
>>9749552the network is pretty cool for me as a zoomie but holy shit it's hard to navigate unless you put in shortcuts
>>9749573>main character is absolutely retarded and acts like a constantly butthurt teenager with daddy issuesso basically every fucking mc in a square game jrpg whatsoever
>>9751498ah yes, the typical /vr/ bullshit way of thinking. half of the games is that franchise are officially untranslated, dumbassjust finished Dragon Knight 4 on PS1 btw, untranslated game too, and that was a hell of a ride. by far the best T-RPG I ever played
Big thing, learn to love shields. On anybody not packing Double Assault/Double Shot/whatever, shield in the off hand, they really don't need a melee weapon 'just in case'. Have a good weapon and keep the bastard safe. Also, when you come across an ability called Arm Smash, it always kills the left one first so make sure the shield is on the left side.
>>9751139Sure is, equip it a few times in a row and once it lands at least once the chance of it kicking in repeatedly grows as well. With a bit of luck you'll deal massive damage. Good shit.
>>9753319I don't know how stacking 6 ROFUP1 got past testing, surely someone saw that and said "this makes you a little TOO broken"
>still no Front Mission 2 translationHugh.
>>9755263There's the partially inserted one, and the remake coming out in June.
>>9749552Save your parts, you need them to develop skills. The hardest skill to get for me was chaff or whatever it was called out of the "must haves".
>>9755263We're getting a remake soon anyway and FM1's remake was fine so I'm sure 2's will be.
Its great until it isn't and then its just good, it drags on for too long and some of the mechanics in the game are very unbalanced>>9755324>>9755521Imagine being happy with a remake, have you even seen the botch job they did with the first Front Mission? It looks like garbage
>>9755263It's been 10 years since their final patch but I still hope another group will pick this one up and finish the job. It's a really good FM game.
>>9756476>have you even seen the botch job they did with the first Front Mission?Yeah I played it all the way through, it plays fine and it's a decent translation. I'm torn though on whether it or the DS version is a better remake.
>>9755324>>9755521>remakeI don't want a remake.
>>9756730Well it's coming out so you wanting one or not is irrelevant, and regardless I don't think 2's fan translation is ever going to be finished.
>>9756476>Its great until it isn't and then its just good, it drags on for too long and some of the mechanics in the game are very unbalanced>Imagine being happy with a remakeSounds to me like you're describing the exact kind of game that SHOULD be remade. You don't remake a 10/10 classic, you remake a 6-7/10 that they could've done better the first time around.
Yeah here's a tip, learn rofupiii,arm smash, and salvo.
>>9756890>rofupiiiYou mean ROFUPI, then equip it 6 times
I'm just playing through the game right and my god how does Ryogo deal with kazuki whining.
>>9757178Anything to get all up in his sister
