metal slug is vrpg now
>>1776051Is this some kind of joke?
>>1776051A strong claim for us.
>>1776205I mean it's nice that Metal Slug isn't 100% dead, but this better not be some low effort phone game
>>1776228https://youtu.be/DqF0KLsaf6U>Wishlist on steamNeed to check out the company more to see their track record.
>>1776051Makes sense because there's less of a workload on the visuals and SRPGs are more popular than run-n-gun games now.So long as it's mechanically good I'm perfectly fine with this.
>>1776051It's been one since the dumbphone days.
>>1776051>Now we can have Metal max and metal slug crossover
The Ikari Team better be in this.
If there aren't vehicle mechanics they dropped the ball
>>1776771Well in the trailer it showed a tank on the heroes's side, so I guess we are getting vehicles.
>>1776051I'm not too sure about the animation, but the sprite art and the portraits are looking great.
>>1776051>srpgs are getting more and more popular>square still doesn‘t make a remaster of their most famous oneWhy is this company so fucking retarded?>do ff tactics>add waifus to marry>cute character interactions>see fire emblem success 2.0
>>1776882>and husbandos for marrySorry I forgot for a glimpse that fujos are the sole reason this series made so much money.
>>1776882Square decided they won't make another turn based FF. Better pray for a Bravely Default Tactics instead.
>>1776300looks cool, kinda miss the oldschool aesthetic but i'll take quasi-Black Lagoon over the soulless phone game
>>1776300>Need to check out the company more to see their track record.They seem like a literal who studio from the two games they have on steam. One game is a twin stick shooter multiplayer arena game, the other looks like some 2d platformer. Both look low budget. I have to really wonder what SNK is doing this for. If it isn't a phone game then I'm really fucking confused.
>Developer is owned by that sheik that killed the American journalistlooks good, but it's going to have to be a pass from me, dog
>>1776982https://www.dotemu.com/games/Not too shabby, imo. Keeping those old franchises alive.
>>1777161>SoR 4>Wonder Boy>Neo Turf Masters>TMNT>Windjammers 2Dotemu is based.
>>1777161They are publishing it.Leikir Studio is the developer. >>1776982The reviews for there games seem good. >>1776882I thought you were gonna mention the Ogre saga.
>>1776882https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzKuBKqNRYIIt's time to port Super Robot Wars to the west, maybe not the ones with the crossovers between mecha anime because it would be a license hell. But the Original Generations would be cool.
What's the right play order for Metal Slug /vrpg/? Do I play the console ports or just the arcade originals?>>1777234the only waifu in this was the FGO Jack ripoff spy
>>1777161The developer is Leikir Studio and Dotemu are just the publishers. Maybe you don't know this, but publishers have nothing to do with actually making of the game. Think of it in music industry where the recording artists are the developers and the record label are the publishers.
>>1777650yeah but it's a srpg developed by squeenixthey aren't ignoring the srpg crazewhy they aren't just making a new title or remastering tactics is dumb though
>>1777661Final Fantasy is a AAAA brand now, they don't want to use it on more niche titles
>>1776300gameplay looks slow and not very flashy but it could be decent i guess
>>1777650Metal Slug 3 and Metal Slug X are I think the ones considered the best. You might as well play them all since they aren't long games, and pick the one you think is the best for tying to do a 1CC run. Arcade versions are the best, but just read some reviews for the console versions I'm sure there's some good ports out there. It isn't /vrpg/ related, but you can find a Metal Slug thread on /vr/ pretty often. I don't see one right now, but if you make one people will definitely join in.
>>1777650>What's the right play order for Metal Slug /vrpg/? Do I play the console ports or just the arcade originals?how could it be any less complicated? it's a series with numbered titles. play metal slug 1. then play metal slug 2. then play metal slug 3. then play metal slug 4. then play metal slug 5. i'm sure you've figured this out by now, but after 5, you could consider playing 6. don'ehtob tr with console ports just emulate the arcarev edsions.
>>1777728well i don't know how that text got jumbled at the end. guess grampas got brain problems. that was supposed to say "don't bother with console ports just emulate the arcade versions."
>>1777728It's not just numbers I saw an X in there
>>1778068Metal Slug X is a remake of Metal Slug 2 using the engine of Metal Slug 3.
>>1776994>killing americansBased. I'll buy 4 copies.
>>1776994nice, fuck journalists and fuck americans
today is my birthdayand this is not good enoughactually that was ysterday
>>1777234is it gonna have jobs
>>1776994I was sold as soon as you said he killed a journo
>>1776882Another bahamut lagoon better than a FFT
will be kino
>>1778387Isn't that a NTR focused fetish series? or so I've heard on /v/
>>1778414No, the princess fuck another guy but every guy that played the game prefer Ectarina or Frederica
>>1776051Isn't this more /vst/?
>>1776228Is this a worse fate than what happened with Contra?
>>1777637I think he's talking about Jamal Khasshogi? He went to this embassy and they murdered him, rolled him up into a rug and threw him away.
>>1776051Hate arcade shooters so maybe I'll actually have a chance to like metal slug now.
>>1776982I'll have some hope. If they have no track record then that's fine with me. I like to see output from new studios. They tend to be a little more hungry for it. But who knows?
>>1776994>owner killed a journo-parasiteMan, you wanted to bitch about something being morally bad but unironically created the greatest salespitch.
>>1780519>If they have no track record then that's fine with me.I mean you're talking about going from the greatest 2d sprite animators of all time, SNK, to some literally who that is making a game on the level as Into the Breach. As a Metal Slug fan, I'm not really that excited, but then again the series hasn't been made by SNK since Metal Slug X with Noise Factory taking the helm for development. But I'm also not against it, just kind of indifferent.
>>1780925>a game on the level as Into the BreachIf it'll be on ITB level then that's amazing.
>>1776994journo was jewish
>>1776051I will now play metal slug
>>1781139Like saying a dog was canine.
I love srpg and wwii setting so i'm hyped, i hope this game has a good multiplayer mode
>>1778366Kek'd and checked
>>1778369nah looks more fire emblemrecruit members who are certain classes
>>1776051>metal slug>trailer showcases destructible setpieces, link attacks, the metal slug, etc>a tactics gamemite b cool
>>1776994>Developer is owned by that sheik that killed the American journalistbased??
>>1780925Quality animation is a luxury for most retro-styled western-made trpgs. At least it's not being built on 3d unity with majority premade assets. The rpg crowdfunding craze in the early '10s relied on that too much and most of the games from that time don't hold up graphics-wise these days.
>>1780925Those dot-art sprites looked superficially good. But when they were both in their 90s primes, capcom characters had more fluid animations compared to snk. Snk unironically got better at animations when they started spriting over prerendered 3d models. I do admit that aof2's rotoscoped sprites have an edge over most of capcom's cps2 era animations.
>>1777192WINDJAMMERS 2 WHEN
>>1778068X is like a remixed version of 2 that runs better on arcade hardware (irrelevant on emulators) has a changed color palate (for the worse IMO) and has enemy and boss placement changed around. Generally 2 is easier.
>>1778546Srpg's can go on vst and vrpg. It will have skills and procedural generation.
