Why does Nippon Ichi refuse to make another game with Laharl-sama as the protagonist?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
this. Leave Laharl alone for the love of japanese satan.
Did you played DD2?
Sad but true. DD2 essentially killed the D1 cast, D2 doesn't really need a sequel, D3 is really meh if you take it outside its convoluted netherworld.
Because Laharl can only say:
"I didn't know I could shed a tear" ONCE. ONLY ONCE DOES THAT WORK.

He already had an amazing character arc. Then other characters got their arcs. DisgaeaD2 sucked and bricked enough PS3s with its bullcrap. Don't do this to us.
It's just a fact of life we have to accept no one will ever be as great as Laharl-sama.

How is this solo? All my irl board game loving friends either played Gloomhaven in another campaign or have no interest in it so this is the only chance I've got at experiencing this game.
I have hope for the HoMM 3 boardgame...
I was always really frustrated how it was just lesser D&D 4E.
Explain how that's even theoretically possible.
supposedly the XCOM board game is pretty good

early access can be good, because it lets developers self-publish and not be controlled by shitty publishers.
>devs do publishing themselves
>no big man with a stick to make them curb their ambitions and actually release the game instead of forever adding more and more things
>devs have a publisher
>high chance of the big man with a stick forcing them to release an unfinished piece of garbage that could've been the game of the millennium had they been given another year of dev time

Hello please forgive my ignorance but I've never played a 'souls' game. My question is, are they RPG's or action games thankyou.
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Visual Novels
They're the Dark Souls of video games
They are RPGs. Thanks for your question.
IMHO they're action games with RPG mechanics.
raid shadow shitshow claims to be an RPG so I guess all games that exist are RPGs.

*Quick notification that i've only played original FF7 on old PS1, and didn't played other games set in FF7 universe*
Is there somewhere in game mention that they are Super Human? early FF7 scenes gave me impretion that SOLDIERs are good, but 8-10 infryman with rifles could take one down (seeing as Cloud opted to run from them rather then fight), or at best, something similar to MCU Captain america tier fighters. Also early game gave me impression that Shinra moved away from gene boosted super soldiers to Robot and other mechanical forces (after Sephiroth debackle i guess).
To sum up: is there any mention in original FF7 that SOLDIERs are super human/super soldiers?

>But then again, Cloud failed to get admitted in the SOLDIER program but turned out great, didn't he?
He got mako poisoning, so not really.
Mako is supposed to fuck you up and you have to be strong to resist it.

Also the BR implies that they are fighting in VR, probably giving them more freedom.
Also he ran because why would he choose to fight a bunch of soldiers when he could just get out of there and get paid? He isn't the one with the vendetta against Shinra.
Cloud literally fell into a coma, recovered with a broken psyche that was a combination of his memories and his friend's stories, and then fell into another coma later. Not exactly the most shining applicant.

He had the physical scores to be a SOLDIER mind you, it was concern about his ability to not get fucked by Mako poisoning that led him to be disqualified.
Those were just cheap marines, not actual members of SOLDIER.
Cloud only turned out the way he did because of Hojo's experiments on him with Jenova cells. His copying Zack, which is all that keeps his sane before his second coma, is an effect of Jenova's mimic ability to blend in with a population, it doesn't just shapeshift but also copies how the beings it copies behave. This is all in Ultimania.

Now that the dust has truly settled, what did we think about Square Enix's Grand Project: Fabula Nova Crystallis? (FFXIII, XIII-2, Lightning Returns, Type-0 and XV)

Special mention: the absolute state of XIV 1.0 which ended up gobbling the budgets of the saga's games.
33 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
XIV originally was such a fucking failure that members from other dev teams had to go and support XIV dev team for 2.0's development
you might as well call it part of FNC because it took time and budget from those titles
Once in a blue moon we have them, but the OP game needs to be an obscure spinoff that barely anyone played.
Too many people have played mainline, and too many people are angry about them.
what if I wanna talk about 13?
I don't think I have seen a civil XIII thread here yet, but I would try to make it an XIII-2 appreciation thread, and put friendly opinions about XIII also welcome in spoilers.
At the end of the day XIII is one of the most controversial JRPGs of all time, it will always be hard to discuss it online.

>best home base theme
honestly can't decide between blight, colony, ASYLUM, or kludge's. probably my most listened one is blight.

I unironically dislike JRPGs for gameplay problems like linear level design, no exploration at all, pre-set protagonist/party, long af cutscenes, being more of a linear movie than an actual game, etc. and I consider even the most mid CRPGs like Dragon Age Origins or Neverwinter Nights to be closer to being actual rpgs than even the "best" normie jrpgs I've tried to play. (and that isn't saying much lmao)

That being said, after done a bit of research, out of those series which one do you recommend the most that could possibly change my mind?
>SaGa games
>Etrian Odyssey
>Shin Megami Tensei
>Metal Max games
>Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactis Ogre
Those are the only one that might appeal to me based from what I've heard on this board, but other recs are welcome as well.

I don't give a shit, I'm not the one who decided to call the genre JRPGs some 35 years ago. I enjoy the 4 niggas in a line genre, I don't play them to roleplay.
Look, let me be honest. You are playing JRPGs for the wrong reason if you want them to play like RPGs. JRPGs are not true RPGs, and I am saying this as someone who will outright tell you that JRPGs are objectively better.

JRPGs are built around telling a compelling story. I play JRPGs for the same reason I loved being read Lord of the Rings when I was little. RPGs, on the other hand, separate fiction and gameplay. Nobody plays as the characters from D&D stories, rather these stories are in books found in a bookstore, and not in the game itself.

This is why you should play a JRPG expecting a good story. If the story is shit, then toss it. If the story is good, hold it tight.
If you do not like JRPG games, then do not play JRPG games.
so what you're saying is that jrpg's are not actually rpg's?
Etrian Oddysey is a western CRPG like Wizardry with anime girls

Yo. I wasn't sure where to post this so figured here would be reasonable. I might post in advice page too. But anyways, my husband is constantly playing video games. He won't go outside, won't get a job and I've talked to him many times about this problem but no solution. I know he uses it as an escape or whatever but it's gotten to the point where he hardly spends time with me at all. He stays awake until 4 am every night and it's not improving. Pep talks don't work and idk what else to do. He claims to have insomnia. I am miserable but we've only been married for a few months and I want to give him the benefit of the doubt because I love him. What should I do?

Heres a torrent for Star Ocean Till the End of Time.
Its a JRPG kinda game. its long but the most memorable game ive played.

Heres the torrent:
I want the other Star Oceans on PC. I don't want to have to emulate them. And SO5 is still not playable on RPCS3.
>And SO5 is still not playable on RPCS3.
You should be thankful for that.
Imagine pirating a game that successfully screws prior games in the franchise and also has, not just one, but two of the worst plot twists in video game history. First plot twist is bad by the fact that the codex can spoil it but also that it is kinda dumb. The second is dumb because it retrorapes the first two games in the franchise. Star Ocean 1 and 2 were basically the best unofficial Star Trek fangames ever, and then this turd comes along to dump on them.

What would you like to see in a Martial Art RPG?
36 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
Then martial artists are melee wizards who buy "spells" instead of weapons.
Or just replace spells with stunts and have wire-fu or classic stuntman stuff cast from an allotment like in D&D. Being able to do Yuen Biao shit can't not be fun.
Wow this is possibly the worst idea I've ever seen on 4chan.
I'd like to see the Kung Fu chapter of Live a Live expanded

Not a RPG and also shit.

Unless you want to talk about the rogue-lite Dragon Quest minigame then that's the real shit right there. Too bad you have to play through the visual novel part to get to the real game.
I'm mildly curious about this game, but I won't play it unless it gets a physical release.
Switch had a physical preorder.

It’s just low-effort Zelda with lots of dialogue and a neat, but undercooked DQ roguelike attached.
Someone please explain how Eastward got made. Sure, it is by no means a great game, but the Chinese.... did the CCP sign off on this?

Eastward is a game where you are traveling from west to east in the far future of earth. From locations, we can assume you start in the shitty slave areas of China and eventually move to Japan. Every city that has a leader, has a bad leader; in order the first is corrupt, the second is incompetent, and the third is a greedy guy running a casino that drags down the local economy..Then, lesbians, which CCP would also disapprove of. How did a company in Shanhhai get away with making this? I honestly hope they don't end up in a prison camp for it.

Seriously though, the game is okay, but it does have some major issues like that damn minigame involving ingame gacha mechanics.
go back to /pol/ please
