>Press release: "Helvetii takes inspiration from Vanillaware titles like Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Odin Sphere"

I could never get into Muramasa and Odin Sphere, tried a few times on my Vita but they felt boring/overwhelming. Very pretty though
Am liking Dragon's Crown somehow

If you can't describe your game without talking about other games then it's probably shit.

>enjoy the atmosphere

Landius always starts as a cavalry unit but his stats, promotions, and other details depend on your decisions. Whatever you picked I'm sure it's good enough. You won't have problems, the game's difficulty is rather low.
Best build IMO is to prioritize troop attack bonus so your ranged units can easily one-shot enemies. You can wait just outside of enemy attack range and manipulate the turn order so you move right after the enemy walks up to you, letting you get multiple attacks if needed. Rather than distributing exp evenly I think it's best to focus on Landius so he can get the teleport spell ASAP then use a runestone for more levels.

It is a little of both honestly. Experience Inc makes good games that get straight to the point of dungeon crawling and they do so in unique styles which personally I reckon earns them many points, but they are generally very simplistic and on the easier side of things. You'd never rank them at the top of an objective ranking if we're being 100% fair, however you can easily see why a lot of drpg fans have a soft spot for them even outside of the fact that they're basically the only consistent developers in the genre.

I was mostly just making fun of the hate posters themselves since they very rarely have any good arguments and I was bored at the time.

>You'd never rank them at the top of an objective ranking if we're being 100% fair
Of course not, those spots are obviosly reserved for Etrian Odyssey, the de facto gold standard for dungeon crawlers!

They are quite infamous sadly, tho I feel it started happening more and more at verge of PS3 era. Dunno if realier games been that bad.
People threw quite some tantrums when falcom became NISA too. For valid reasons.
>>2937379
just curious, anything comes to mind from first 4 games? Cause I been playing D2 post game for awhile and sometimes there some too obscure things which are not as well explained.
Outside of obvious DLC hackjob for PSP.

I wouldn't be surprised. they can't port for shit on any platform nowadays, judging by NIS classic.
First PC ports were on life support too, I never bothered with them.

I played the demo in 2021, it has the best "three/four niggas in a row" gameplay in years, maybe decades.
There are no random battles, the whole gameplay is based around party customization and fun combat with 7 party members and an emotional story.

you would think if someone is this skilled in doing art for a game that the gameplay would be complementary and not bog everything down by being a shadows of adam/mystic quest/saga 3/final fantasy clone

I will try your games when they go on sale. They look pretty fun.

>>2937580
I think it looks like a quality effort, the pixel art is very appealing but all you guys who do "love letter" games should play them straight with lore building.
I wish I had a dollar for every META NAME game that would sell better with real worldbuilding instead.

I will never understand why with so much effort in the art and unity or whatever you wouldn't take the seemingly easier work of the writing more seriously.
I am always, always put off from buying a game with low effort meta crap in the name and description. RPGs especially are about escapism not reminding people they're playing a video game.

When it comes to low-budget RPGs presented from a third-person perspective, do you prefer canned animations with few camera angles for story scenes, or visual novel segments with portraits or renders of characters behind environments?
9 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>2927212
The canned animation stuff gets stale quickly in XIV, even though the WoL does have a comparative lot of animations.
So if you go with that it's a example of how not to do it, try to make two or three takes of the yes and no emotes if a character is going to be using them a thousand times...
>>
>>2927212
VN style always feels cheap. basic/canned animations can be charming, like in FF6

>>2927212
I prefer VN style, because unless you have the art direction and unlimited budget of a PS2 or PS3 era Final Fantasy game, the 3D models are going to look ugly and you'll be stuck staring at them for dozens or possibly hundreds of hours.

Is that a mod or can you get haircuts in Witcher 3?

>>2927212
Games are better off just doing the canned animations and focusing on the gameplay and the story instead of wasting money on 2D cutscenes.
Same reason i dont support voice acting in videogames.

The only one i can think of is Sacrifice.
Why combining other genres with rpg worked out for Bethesda(FPS+RPG),Bioware(Dating sim+rpg),Compile Heart(Visual novel+RPG) etc. but Sacrifice flopped?
Is it because you could only level up by completing missions and finding bonuses so you couldnt just farm the same monster over and over to win because you were overleveled even if you were bad like in most rpgs and actually had to think?

True for PVE play, the pause is inconsequential.
For PVP it becomes little tricky.
>>
>>2928395
Yes Total War is an RTS game deal with it
>>
When I hear "RTS RPG", I think Mount & Blade and Suikoden 5.

It's rare because in the West, war games are usually FPS or RTS, with minimal focus on getting the audience invested in characters or exploring the fantasy world. In Japan, the PC market crashed at the end of the 90s and everyone moved over to console. It is difficult to create an RTS that is meant to be played with a controller, so in Japanese war games you control armies through turn based combat. Suikoden 5 has the RTS units move a relatively slow speeds and the game automatically pauses whenever you select a unit, because controller thumbsticks were not designed for precision clicking.
>>
>>2927859
Stratos was really stupid for thinking he can controll Marduk a being that travels from dimension to dimension eating entire UNIVERSES
So arrogant...
It was really satisfying watching Marduk come right before you're about to kill Stratos and instead of saving him finishing his "master" off.
Ahahahaha.
>>
>>2927859
I remember buying this game when i was a kid my mom allowed me to have it because she thought the cover art was Jesus killing Satan and getting Charnels and Stratos's endings but on my 3rd playthrough while trying to get Persephones ending my mom wanted to watch me play and found out the game says there are 5 gods and none of them are Jesus and the guy she thought was Satan was one of them so she broke my disc and unistalled it from my pc for my own good because its satanist propaganda and then when i got enought money to get another copy i couldnt find it again.
It was pretty cool.

The Morrowind expansions were the first attempt at more “cinematic” Elder Scrolls.
That’s why they have more of a focus in combat, more voice acting, and more urgency in the quest design compared to the main game.

There's one route that doesn't suck on account of it being the only one where you can get all your allies to dodge the idiot ball and you basically need to use a guide or replay the game to get it because the set of choices you need to make is some arbitrary trial and error.

The game is otherwise not that bad but the inclusion of grinding is a clear mistake.

See this is another reason Vandal Hearts is the best SRPG. There's a plot, it's good and interesting, it just doesn't take the game 30 fucking hours to establish character motive and narrative progression. You learn more about Ash Lambert inside 20 minutes than you do most characters after a whole game.

takes awhile to get started, but when it does it's a wild ride. The cutscenes don't bother me, prepare a meal and just watch.

I mean, I looked it up, but are there really no in-game hints? None at all? My stupid ass went to see daddy in a non true route playthrough, so I cucked myself out of unlocking party members. This is the most unintuitive required choice, too.

For me is Corridors of Time, Secret of the Forest and Schala's Theme.
