Anyone else hype for Rune Factory 5? I heard the JP release wasn't stellar but they've been patching the issues out. Also obligatory>who are you going to waifu/husabando
was hyped before they released the game and now post release with the localization shit added too i'm at a very mild "will pirate and try it out eventually" mood
Is Switch emulation working well yet? I would buy a console, but I wouldn't use it that often to justify that. Probably the only game I'm waiting for.
>>2360156it works well but only if you have overexpensive high end pc
>>2360067I'll marry the princess
>>2360067>hype for Rune Factory 5?Hell yeah>waifu/husabandoSucc and maybe Lucas if I do a second playthrough, seriously hoping the jank isn't as bad as what people are saying.
>>2360075what was added? And what has been patched?
>>2360831The frame rate isn't very good when you're fighting a bunch of enemies, but it's not really a dealbreaker to me personallyFarming is fine though, it feels slower paced than the other RF games (even the time passes slower), but it's still comfy!>>2360067I'm debating between Beatrice and Reinhardt, they're both so attractive in their own ways
>>2360156>>2360671>it works well but only if you have overexpensive high end pcNot true, my pc is old, the newest thing on it is the graphics card that was bought 5 years ago and even back then it wasn't the best one.Right now I'm playing SMTV on Ryujinx and it works with minor flaws, those being a bit of lag as soon as you finish loading your save which is gone as soon as I turn the camera a bit and heavy lag in some cutscenes, but that's a small price for me considering everything else works fine.
>>2360067Was I spoiled by 3 and 4, or do the girls in 5 look extremely underwhelming? Middle and beast girl are not bad, but they don't really measure up to previous entries.
>>2361472the cutest girl is honestly alice (girl protag)beatrice and priscilla are cute too though
>>2360067>living in a remote village, surrounded by nature>honest work for yourself and your community>village girls are all cute, pure, unspoilt and, without a hint of doubt, wife+breed materialThey took this from you IRL and give this game as a substitution. Fuck RF. Fuck this genre as a whole.
>>2361472that's how i felt about 4. None of the girls appealed to me after playing 3
>>2360067have people started modding RF4?
>>2360067I heard this game sux
>>2361534>Fuck this genre as a wholeI think this is the main issue. RF5 being bad wouldn't hurt as much if there were other similar franchises. The problem is, RF5 was the only game people were hoping to be good because it was the only option.
>>2361534>give this game as a substitution.>implying they'll let you have even thatThey're slowly taking that shit away. Look at all the American diversity checkboxes stardew has, everyone is bi in RF5 and it's shit. We're never getting anything even remotely as good as RF4 for at least half a decade.
>>2362593True. Though if the girls are bi - that's more weeaboo pandering I think and it's been here for decades. If guys - yeah no, thanks.
>>2360067From left to right: 163254, lower is better. My LORD the girl on the left is FINE. Japs have perfected the art of 2d girls. At this point I consider giving up on real women, they just can't compete.
>>2362593>American diversity boxesLike what, one black guy in the entire game?
>>2360067Is it worth getting into RF as a post-weeaboo who unironically plays jrpgs and heavily modded minecraft? What's the main draw of the series? Can it be played casually (less that an hour per day on average)? Which entry is best (1-4, no speak jap).
>>2363216the main draws are stuff like farming, dating/marriage, characters and town events, monster taming, combat (crafting better gear for yourself and companions), and so onit can definitely be played casuallyi like 4, but haven't tried the others
>>2363216it’s great if you like being surrounded by off-limits MILFs
>>2363162>Doggie is the worstBaseless
>>2363216>>2363253Thanks lads, sounds chill af, I'll check out the 4th one>>2363255Furries - gtfo off my board
>>2363258>Dog ears = furryCringe
>>2363216 -> >>2363230Missed>>2363259Dog ears are a cover up to get furryfags on board in a legal way. Just like 1000 years old lolies.
>>2360067Ignored it because I heard it wasn't great but apparently that was in terms of performance not the actual content? Might pick it up if it ever releases on pc.
>>2361534>They took this from you IRL and give this game as a substitution. Fuck RF. Fuck this genre as a whole.Lol you were never going to have those things.
>>2363216>Is it worth getting into RF as a post-weeaboo who unironically plays jrpgs and heavily modded minecraft?No you sound like a bore and don't deserve good games.
>>2363588>>2363591>mom, look, mom, I am trolling! Mom! MOM!!
>>2363596Not my fault you think pastoral fantasies actually existed as opposed to just being a genre of art. you can just enjoy the games bud.
>>2363601Not my fault that you are an edgelord who barged in a thread just to spew vitriol on a first occasion. This is an opposite of sensible conversation. You are not welcome here. /b/ might be a better fit for you.
>>2363611If you made a bad post then I'm afraid it is.I posted a serious comment first. Then I started reading people dumb posts.I'm interested in the game, enjoyed RF4 but fucked up my play trough since I assumed you had to get thorough Venti's stuff as quickly as possible and then found myself in the endgame with my crafting severely under leveled.
>>2363209Single mother trailer trashThe only manual labourer in town is a divorced woman married to a divorced man in an interracial marriageOnly black guy is le scientistShop owner literally got cucked and is raising the wizard's kidThe fat single lady is fucking the mayor, yet another modern type relationship instead of actually committing One of the bachelerottes (Leah) does nothing, but talk about her fucking ex with youPenny gets defensive when accused of "sitting" in the tree with blonde guy by VincentBoth of these events only occur after you invest into the girls, not upfrontThere's literally only ONE functional, committed, conventional relationship without cheating in the entire game, and it's with a soldier's who abroad for the first year.Compare this to Harvest Moon or RF, where everything is homogeneous, everyone is in traditional relationships, and all the girls are pure. SV is a love letter to modern lefty American sensibilities.
>>2363800Wtf, this is ridiculous. Thank god I paid 0 attention to SV. How did sheeple not notice this crap?
>>2362593>>2363800This is why I hated starjew villagers.You forgot the sissy wyte boi doctor working with the nigger astronomer/nurse mutt.Sissy emo boy getting put into his place by the nigger step dad. Alcoholic waste Shane and trailer trash Pam. Honestly there is not a single good thing you can find about any NPC in the game.
I've been trying to watch vids talkin about the JP version to see if it's worth picking up. I wish some of the old RF/SOS thread bros who imported it were here to give thoughts. Kinda trust them more than random youtube shills
>>2363833The target audience is western women and "men". They love it, because it's just like their hellscape city communities and relationships, instead of an idealistic small, tight knit community far removed from all that modern shit.
>>2363885>The target audience is western women and "men"so are rune factory 4 and 5
>>2363885I 100% stardew but I have to admit the least enjoyable part and the one i forced myself through were the villagers.
>>2363919Target audience for 4 is Japanese women who actually care about bishonen and ikemen in their games, that's why they split the number of bachelerottes in half for them. They didn't want to go the HM route where they make a seperate game for the girls. 5 is where they started western pandering, because only the west wants everyone to be bi, and for friendship to never exist. Be nice to any guy you mean? You're now gay.
>>2363926I don't think rune factory 6 will ever come out, but if it did, imagine if half the bachelorettes were trannies
>>2361534You will never be white and your golden era in the past is a fiction to sell you backwards ideology. Even if your idealized past existed in reality, you would have been cast out from it. You would have been then as you are now. The only way your ass is getting laid in any timeline involves prostitution or marital rape.
>>2363926>Be nice to any guy you mean? You're now gay.I wish.
>>2364046>everyone who isn't an open white nationalist is redditsasuga
>>2364060>wanting comfy unpozzed game is white nationalism
>>2364072Oh sure anon that's hy you're a white nationalist, and not because you casually used words like "pozzed" (which you stole from gay people) and call people who disagree with you Jewish. Swarmniggers were never welcome on this site and still aren't. Global rule 3 exists for a reason.
>>2364096>faggot vehemently defends westernizing of the gameColor me surprise, and you wonder why your kind will never be accepted. Of course you support the bastardization of the series if it means including the garbage you want. And none "stole" anything from you faggots, the term is used to bring attention to your subhuman nature. We all know where the term originated.
>>2364117>and you wonder why your kind will never be accepted.Oh we are, in America and Japan, way more than the inbred wannabe klansmen who pretend to be native to yotsuba. You're seething about this fact in this very thread.>Of course you support the bastardization of the series if it means including the garbage you wantI'm amazed that you can look at a game series adding implied gay sex and think this is the sole problem with the game.>the term is used to bring attention to your subhuman natureAnon, even white nationalist enablers think you're subhuman, and have since the dawn of your ideology. You're nothing but a slave looking at a shadow on the wall.>>2364106Haha
>>2364141Amazing post anon! You truly showed me! I kneel!
why the fuck did the /pol/tards have to ruin my fucking thread I just wanted to talk about rf5 since PoOT was such a disappointment
>>2364147feels like this thread belongs on /v/ rather than /vrpg/
>>2364161we had pretty consistent rf/sos threads a while back. Unless you mean reading through the thread makes you feel like you're on /v/ then yes.
>>2364170this. i feel kinda triggered, ngl
>>2364147We can't have nice threads anymore after faggots and anti-faggot faggots decided that this was the best place to fling shit at each other.Anyway the game isn't out yet and there hasn't been any major updates or patches so there isn't much to talk about.
>>2364260>anti-faggots are just as bad as faggots
>>2364280Anyone who can't stop screaming about off topic /pol/shit are bad, yes. I don't really have a stance in this so I won't feed you anymore.I just want RF and SoS to get their shit sorted out for their next games, RF5 seems alright other than framerates and some 3d jank but Poot was basically a maker and mining simulator.
>>2360067this game has a virgin succubus, I don’t care if it lets w*ite women pretend to be gay for attention
>>2364467Go back to your bunker if you don't like anons pointing out facts then.
>>2362593What are you talking about? RF4 literally has a Jew in it. And he was not baked in an oven!
>>2364617/vrpg/ IS a bunker for people to attempt to talk about fucking video games without having to deal with disruptive, attention-seeking culture warriors every waking minute
>>2365155This to be honest, I came from /v/ when this board started and never came back because I was tired of leftards and stormniggers flinging shit at each other every second post. I'm tired of dumb fucks thinking that existence of homosexualism is a threat to the western culture (while ancients were gay as fuck) and niggers from the other side saying that where you put your dick in is the only important thing about your personality. Stop thinking exclusively about sex you dumb faggots, we should be over that as a species.
>>2364147Not my fault the red carpet was trotted out years ago for /pol/ to invade every single board without consequence. This is what 4chan is now.
cool story bros, anyway here's the new trailerhttps://youtu.be/-hb9yBwDS3o
>>2365745alice is such a cute girl god wish that was me
>>2365745Looks like trash.
>>2363863I beat the JPN version. It’s fun. The framerate is shit and the graphics are god awful, but the content of the game itself is good. Maybe not as good as 4, but close. If you liked 4 you’ll enjoy 5 too as long as you can handle the jank. Murakumo is best boy by a mile.
>>2366400yeah the graphics are pretty bad although I like walking through the main street with all the cherry blossom trees surrounding you, combat is janky as fuck especially on the fieldi dont think its as good as 4 either, but I dont get why this game gets so much hate on /v/, smt5 has inconsistent (and bad) framerates too and it sold just fine
>>2366609>Can't marry loli dragon despite having two of them in the game and have recorded romance lines because It'd offend americans >Can't be friends with guy characters anymore>Performance issuesSounds pretty shit to me
I will only play it if they fix performance issues
>>2366910>Can't marry loli dragon despite having two of them in the game and have recorded romance lines because It'd offend americans As the gay guy who bases my entire personality around being gay, removing the dragon loli offends me deeply. My guess though is that the pedophiles in the Fire Emblem fanbase are to blame for this.>Can't be friends with guy characters anymoreDoubt>Performance issuesSounds about right
>>2366910but you couldn't marry the loli dragon in 4 either
>>2360067I already have a japanese copy which i bought to motivate to learn moon runes which didn't workand so far i am not too hyped that i would buy it again localized. I'll just play it whenever i can read moonrunes comfortably so probably never.
>>2360067I'm not hype for RF 5 because they gave in to tranny westerners. Fuck that.
The JP version at least emulates well so I'll try that out when the English version lands.
>>2367574They're not going to, they probably can't. It's probably a bunch of Unity asset store scripts smashed together.
>>2365745> No new JP trailerWhat is this supposed to imply bros?
>>2366910>Can't marry loli dragonSo same as 4, then.>despite having two of them in the game and have recorded romance lines because It'd offend americans Terry has datamined romance shit too, what about him offends Americans?>Can't be friends with guy characters anymoreJust don't confess to them, retard.>Performance issuesYour one valid complaint.
>>2366609>but I dont get why this game gets so much hate on /v//pol/fags had an absolute meltdown over the gay marriage thing
>>2369074>Don't confess to him retard Doesn't make the character stop blushing and hitting on me retard
>>2369078>>2369135honestly, they shouldn't have made everyone bisexual, it strips them of their individuality and makes the villagers all sameythey shoulda done like three houses where most bachelor(ettes) are straight, with 1-2 each being bisexual
>Marvelous tried to cater to THESE people
>>2369175I was trying to find an angry photo of Fuuka so I could've said ガウガウガーウ、ガウガウガウ!(HOW DARE YOU CALL ME A CHILD, AND FORGET MY NAME ON TOP OF THAT)
>>2369141Three Houses is funny with the bisexual options. Yaoifags got the short end of the stick. Since they made Edelgard bi, they probably should have made the other house leaders bi too.
>>2368879That the game is already out in Japan.
>>2369175>RF1>adultsMost of the girls look about the same age as Fuuka, it's just that the newer games have uglier sprites so they look even younger, or is it because she's a dog? Since there are proper lines after the gaus I assume only the protag can understand them or something?>>2369228I remember the old men fucker Manleth memes from before it was revealed that their S ranks were literally nothing, it was funny while it lasted.
real shame about performance
>>2369359I one of the options in RF1 is 12 or 13 and still refers to her mother as "Mommy".
What's your favorite rune ability/magic? I really like Cyclone from RF4, especially if you have an axe with glitta and tenfold steel.
Can someone who know JP and played this game tell me how bad the bisexual player shit is, like the guys aren't gonna flirt with me right?
>>2371502You remember any guys hitting on you in RF4? Yeah like that
>>2371505So yes? I heard in a video the characters don't hit on you until after you started dating but I guess that was wrong
>>2371500I don't use rune abilities and magic is limited to healing.
>>2371599I occasionally use offensive magic when enemies have really high physical defense
>>2371614Only time I've used magic is when the map requires it to progress but usually even enemies with high defence are weak to some element.
>>2371502There are a few scenes where characters of both genders will mildly flirt with you regardless of which protagonist you picked, but they were already in the game from launch. Outside of that no one will hit on you unless you confess to them, and if you confess to a guy and then complain that he’s in love with you you’re a retard.
>>2369135How did you survive playing RF4?
>>2369135Do you think chitchat with characters gave off different reactions in previous games based in your gender? Lol good job outing yourself as a secondary
So we are getting her as DLC right bros? s-she was labeled as DLC....marvelous wouldn't leave us hanging r-right? haha........
>>2376385Probably not. I'm pretty sure the reason we won't get her is less REEEEE AMERICANS but more that the team has basically had to spend all of their time since launch fixing the fucked up state that their game was in and won't really have time to finish any planned DLC. But I suppose it's not impossible so we'll see.
>>2360067100% the beastgirl.
>>2368345They do had a short dlc teasing the dragon that we would never have. Kids even
>>2376795Considering the price of SoS dlcs, probably $10-$15 or so.
>>2379135Why did she turn into a cat
>>2363800what about the writer guy who lived on the beach? i thought he was pretty nice but i hated the other characters and i didn't like the game in general
i still can't believe they recorded dragon pussy voice lines and ripped it away from us...
>>2379135i'm so glad i learned japanese and avoided this abomination
I just pre-ordered RF5. Didn't even realize it got a concrete US release date.RF4 is probably my favorite game of all time. I'm definitely looking forward to it, but I also know I better finish up the games I just bought because I'll likely forget they exist once 5 releases.
>>2380652fuck this gay earth
>>2380402How does she talk in japanese?
>>2380975like a fucking retard
>>2381000Do her voicelines actually say the japanese lines, or is it all barking?
>>2381103its literally 'ares, gagau, gaugagau, gau?'
>>2381105I meant the parts in brackets, but I guess not.
>>2381108brackets are less literally (ares, family, is interested in?)still sounds like a fucking retardalthough her 'language' skills do improve over the course of the game she is still a retarded dog who should be taken out to pasture
>>2381117she is the best girl and my wife
>>2381144>they ruined the entire fucking franchise just to appease this anonhate to see it happen
>>2381103It's mostly gaugau, but sometimes it reads a little bit of the japanese.
>>2381148it was a sacrifice i was willing to make
>>2381232well fuck (you) until the end of time, anon
>>2365745Can't believe Tides of Destiny is better than this.
>>2381242I wish these games could at least give enough of a shit to at least let them sleep under the sheets properly
>>2381715i was very disappointed when there was no cuddling
>>2381000This is so stupid, if she can say his name why can't she say any other word?
>>2383596just doesn't want to
>>2379135I fucking hate localizers
>>2383744i just noticed that it's a proper sentence instead of "christmas! everyone, good mood!"bravo xsneed trannies
>>2383694>no kemomimi kid>no knife ears kid>only boring human kid allowed
Adding the gay marriage was disappointing, it just showed that LGBT will come for everything eventually.
>>2384402This is why I'll never play RF5.
>>2384402marvelous puting themselves out of business by shoving the gay down on normal people
>>2384353i was devastated when my cute wife fuuka gave birth and there were no dog ears, that random line really twisted the knife
>>2381715What games allow that? I can barely think of any outside of JRPG's where sleeping has a dedicated sprite or some other visual trick.
>>2384500Its either straight or political it seems.
Yes I'm looking forward to it and yes I am only getting it for the same-sex marriage. I mean I was always interested in the games for concept alone, mixing farming sim with JRPG sounded fun, and I would have played it if marriage wasn't mandatory. Since it is mandatory for progression I'm glad I can marry one of the cute guys and not have to play as a girls.To be fair I've sucked it up before and play a game where you have to marry a girl, I love DQ5 and Debora is very fabulous. But that's not nearly as involved as RF, I didn't have to raise heart levels or whatever and actually invest in a romance I don't like.I mean can you get where I'm coming from old fans who are mad? You wouldn't want to marry a guy right? Come on can't we just all enjoy the game.
>>2385385>marriage is mandatory?
>>2385394Isn't it? I thought for sure you have to get married to continue in Rune Factory. Everything I read about the games it was so central. Was I mislead by waifufaggotry?
>>2385409I'm not too sure about the other entries, but marriage is certainly not required in RF4.But yeah, I'm currently playing the Japanese version and it's fun. (I'm playing as a girl, but honestly the dialogue is 99.9% identical for both genders)
>>2385066Jrpg but old pokemon games had the blanket sprite on top of characters so you can walk into beds. Arguably harder to do stuff like this in 3d.>>2386672Only one where you HAD to get married was 2 iirc, but I think 3 and 4 had marriage-specific events.
>>2386758You can't complete RF3 if you don't get married. Not sure about RF4 but I know there are marriage-specific areas.
>>2385409As far as I remember:>RF1Marriage isn't mandatory for the story and the last bachelorette isn't even available until the story is finished.>RF2Marriage is mandatory to START the main story, everything before having kids is essentially a prologue.>RF3Marriage is mandatory to finish the main story.>RF4Marriage isn't mandatory. Depending on your progress in the main story you might even be locked out of it until you progress further.>FrontierNot mandatory.>OceansMarriage isn't possible before you finish the main story.
>>2387105There are areas in RF4 which you just can't access if you don't have spouse/kids.
>gayshit>turned bestgirl into a memeYeah, I’m thinking DROPPED
>>2387574These aren't necessary to complete the main story though, are they? So I still wouldn't call them mandatory.
>>2387682Yeah the one area i can remember where you need a family of three to progress is an optional part of a dungeon where you can get a material that's used to craft an accessory that boosts your spouse and kid's stats
>>2385385>I mean can you get where I'm coming from old fans who are mad? You wouldn't want to marry a guy right? Come on can't we just all enjoy the game.It doesn't personally bother me if I have to play as a girl to date a guy if I wanted to play a game for that reason alone, but I understand your point of view. From what I've seen most people who don't simply hate any hint of faggotry in games both in the west and in Japan only dislike that they made the characters bisexual, that is, if it was in the game from the start they wouldn't complain (whether they would buy it or not is a different issue). In the end though, buy it if you like it and think you'll have fun, don't buy it if you don't, it's that simple to me.
If spouse and kids have their own areas, do the gay couples get magic science babies in 5 or is 5 not one of the games that has areas that need a kid?
>>2388554Didn't SoS give gays a magic baby?
Has there been any fixes to the game since they announced gay marriage?
>>2390751I'm curious as well. The JP website doesn't list any patches since then, and none of the amazon reviews since then mention any new patches either.
>>2390800I played the JP version at 1.1.0, which implemented xseed's gay marriage. Haven't been any updates since.I like the game itself, and I'm actually for gay marriage, but it's literally unplayable when there's so much lag during combat. So I'm waiting for an update like a good boy.
I'm just tired of games I love being released on that dogshit system, the devs making it way too resource-hungry because zoomzooms need GOOD GWAFIX or they'll fall asleep, so I have to play a game that runs like booty ass or hope it releases in a somewhat less broken state on PC.
I'm guessing doggirl is the most popular choice...?
>>2390929Wasn't there a poll when it released and succ was the top choice?
>>2388822when does this coom out
>>2390853yeah I feel this. They could have toned down the graphics and made it look like Oceans or something and had it run better.
>>2391443What the fuck I remember this too.
apparently the main story is so short you can finish it in like 2 weeks, and the end game is much more sparse compared to rf4
>>23917182 weeks in game time or rl time?
>>2363162Spectacularly bad taste.
>>2391718They sacrificed everything by putting the gay in
>>2391718How long did you want the game to be?
