Bodysuit is way better than skin.
That's why Vert's is the worst upgrade.
Blanc's is most disappointing, the wings and hat are dumb.
In fact, worst girl got the best upgrade, fuck everything.
White Heart's midriff is the gamepad screen
>neptune's 3rd form has some useless twintails, they are almost as long as her body
>blanc's 3rd form has some big-ass gloves that may help her in battle
I don't like what they did with Nepnep's hair.
That stupid gloves. That dumbass hat.
What's with the horn? If it wasn't for that she'd probably have the best design due to it being the most simplistic and close to the original.
All in all i don't like any of them, really.
They really aren't as good as the earlier designs. Sometimes if you can't top an original look, it's best to just leave it alone. We see this frequently with post-timeskip designs that end up being more boring, or just less interesting than the originals.
Compile Heart, actually making new 3D models for the neps?
So when are re;birth 2 and re;birth victory coming to PC, if ever? Should I wait for them or should I just buy them for the Ps3? Opinions?
DAMN this looks great.
They won't be doing a new Iris Heart will they?
Well, yes, but i'm talking about what's out RIGHT NOW. There are no other re;birth games for PC other than the first one, I'm talking about mk2 and victory/rebirth2 & rebirth vvictory
Is there a timeline? A date? Please help.
The only thing confirmed for PC release is Rebirth 1 (Already out) and Rebirth 2 (Sometime soon). Everything else is non confirmed and there's little chance of PC getting MK2 or Victory.
Also someone mentioned Norie coming to PC and Iffy said they have no plans on porting it soon. (But it will most likely come eventually)
>Everything else is non confirmed and there's little chance of PC getting MK2 or Victory.
Isn't rebirth 2 a rehashed mk2 though? So why would it matter if we're not getting mk2 on PC?
Also, there's little chance of getting victory on pc? by that do you mean re;birth 3? why not?
Ok, I should have said there's very little chance of PC getting the original PS3 Neptunia games. But that shouldn't matter if you get the Rebirth games.
Rebirth 3 for PC hasn't been confirmed yet. It's very likely since you'll get 1&2 and I don't see why they wouldn't port 3.
Overengineered. White Heart does look good but the gloves get in the way.
They had the right idea with Purple Heart: Bodysuit + Crazy Wings.
They simply went overboard with the others.
Been waiting for this one. I don't think it makes a lot of sense to remake Victory but I'll be buying it anyway because of my Puru.
Seriously though can somebody explain to me the horn? Why does she wear it? It looks fucking retarded.
Somebody needs to get Tsunako on the phone right now and tell her to fix this shit. Vert has such an amazing design, just look at those vagina bones. But here I'm being too distracted by the fucking horn.
>vert will never stick her horn up your ass
Blanc is the angry type when she fights, so I think that gauntlets are pretty fitting for her as a weapon.
Still, overly big wings, overly big hat and overly big gloves definitely don't go well together.
>almost platinum'd 1 if it wasn't for one item unavailable at endgame
>finished mk2 8 times for 100% gallery
>still haven't played V or any rebirth
I did it for her, but how can I carry on if she's fated to never appear again?
If anything. The very first game is a good place for new players to visit -after- they went through a few of the Re:Birth games.
It's like visiting a museum really.
Hey guys, I've been reading for a couple of years now that the original game was crap gameplay wise and that aspect of the only got fixed in mk2, care to name some examples on why the gameplay was frowned upon? I only played a bit of mk2 and finished V like almost a year ago but playing Rebirth is a really nice experience and it even made me rewatch the anime even though it wasn't really as cute as the video games, And now I want to play the original first three games like the other guy said already, but considering that a lot of people dislike the first game makes me worry about ruining my experience with this beautiful franchise, and since even Rebirth 3 is a posibility, I might as well just wait for them instead of borrowing a ps3. Is this the best decision? or should I just grab mk2 already and finish it as soon as possible?
MK1 was a mindless grind.
MK2 and beyond gives you the option to marginally apply brain and grind faster.
I don't feel any of the series particularly deserves mention for having interesting fights, though...
I understand your pain as well, and believe it or not, you can get from level 100 to 999 in literally about an hour in RB1. Then the game just becomes a ridiculous faceroll hodge-podge of enormous numbers and 3-second battles, broken even further by some certain plans.
I don't mind it if games are fairly easy to win. I guess with just one difficulty, they even might have to be - most people's reactions and maths or anything else that you might require are not good.
But there are a lot of next to pointless fights in most of this series (grinding to level up, mostly). Not a big fan of that.
- Shitty battle engine. The character animation trigger so slow, making you spent more second per attack command. You will fast forward all animation after seeing it once.
- The balance is out of window, the only thing worth do are the character special attack.
- Useless item "crafting" and "ingredient".
I don't think something like that is unbelievable considering people used to grind like mad in things like Diablo II or WoW etc. in a matter of hours, as you say, the plan mechanics are even more proof that something like that is not that difficult to achieve. But since I've never really played for grinding (I'm probably too retarded to do it properly either way) I guess it was nice knowing that non of the three games I played of this series needed it for advancing through them.
Sounds like no fun at all. I really want to play it though, considering it's pretty much the only game I can borrow for free.
Can we talk about rebirth 1?
Is it just me or are battles pretty much just exe drive spam fests?
Also, what's with the item creation planners? As soon as i create a weapon/armor/accessory one begins freely available in the story that surpasses the item that i barely had the chance to make. What's with that?
Is her personality as dorky in that form as before?
Say what you want about that outfit. The hair color and ponytail look amazing.
The anime: aside from the fanservice, what went right?
The first three episodes, the Eggplant and Beach episodes. Also the OVA.
Essentially the fun episodes without using the game plots. I had no issues with the mk2, and Victory arcs personally, but some just felt weak.
I still would love a S2 though. Maybe after V-II we could have some fun material.
In a spoiler sense? If you keep posting in Nep threads you're gonna be spoiled.
Though in an entertainment sense. I'm not saying it's bad. It's worth a shot if you enjoyed the game and characters.
I guess. I'm watching their episode 1, it's a lot better than the nearly unwatchable Funi video, which was washed out.
>that spontaneous boob jiggle
Don't even care. Still want to fug Blanc.
Eh, I watched it like a year ago, without having played any of the games, and it was still pretty fun. Just finished R;B 1 as well, and I'll probably watch it again soon.
To be honest, if you're watching it for the story though, you're watching it for the wrong reason.
I just played RB1 as my first Nepnep related thing, and hopped into the anime on a friend's recommendation since I didn't particularly care about spoilers.
There's some things that are new to me, but above all else it's
Nep's the cutest
So what's your guys' fav nep reaction image? Pic obviously related.
This one always makes me laugh.
Made just for you, anon.
I just rewatched the anime... but it feels like I have to do it again. How do I fill this void in my life ?
I also watched the anime before playing any of the games, and it was because I liked the characters and story that I bought Rebirth 1 on PC. Which of course turned out to be even better in that department.
Probably pic related, though I'm fond of a few others too.
This got me into the franchise.
The official manga are great; a lot better than the anime, actually. (One of them is already ended, tragically.)
I was going to agree that Vert got the worst mega evolution, but goddamn.
The others are still better though (even Blanc with that goofy form, I hope she gets bullied for it), so I guess even with that ass she's still the worst.
>My friends in my dimension said to keep drinking this purple stuff so I won't transform unless I reaaaally have to, for some reason.
Hello New World ended.
There's one nice translated non-H doujin (that I know of), though.
It didn't seem at all similar to the anime.
Am I missing a game reference here?
Here's the whole page, probably just a reference to her furry fan fiction.
>Next Black Tsunako's comment
Using head mount display a motif and radiating parts as a special feature. A combination of glossy black and matte gray, tinged with blue, and a slanted weapon.
She also has sailor collar on her back. Truthfully I was fixated on her butt the most.
That would've been nice, actually.
>no SERIOUS to spoil the fun
>even more shameless fanservice
The other one (Megami Tsuushin) isn't as good, but it has its charms.
That Plutia and P-ko
farewell scene was beautiful. The song too.
Got hit hard, I wasn't expecting it.
Current guess is that Re:birth 2 will come to PC around same time Re:birth 3 is coming to vita in the west, which was announced to be this summer. People are thinking near the end of the year for Re:birth 3 for pc.
i don't even have the game
any of them
They look awful, with the exception of Nep Nep. The designs are way too XTREME, and I don't know what the fuck they were thinking with the giant Megaman paws on Noire and Blanc.
I'll be skipping the next installment if there's no way to change it.
Dat catchy ending
The start of that scene made me feel bad for Nep, thankfully it turned around.
Well Ultradimension Noire would need to get around Plutia to get a boyfriend. Would be hard to do considering Plutia has already stated she doesn't like the idea and Iris Heart has stated Noire belongs to her.
Shoved in serious arcs when they weren't needed. Serious story is not why people like Neptunia.
A reminder that Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart comes out in 2 weeks. Remember to pre-order!
Why is Iris Heart so disturbing sometimes.
If only their NEXT transformation made them all look like nepgear it wouldve made it 100x better
I preordered but I ended up cancelling.
By the end I only wanted the wallscroll from the LE, which didn't feel worth buying the whole game I still have to get the true ending in RB;1 and finish 2.
>Pre-ordering a game based on the worst girl that has
It's forever burned into your brain
>They aren't bad at all
How is either version anywhere near good let along not bad?
>Over localization bullshit in the game
The only good part about commie is video quality and typesetting.
Either way, I think Tara is a better voice for the character.
Nothing compares to Rie Purple Heart though. Her voice in that form is pure sex.
Honestly I think the dub overall is well done, it helps that by this point all the girls know their characters since they've kept the dub voices consistent. The only dub voice I actively dislike is Noire's. Seriously, what the fuck were they thinking with that voice? I don't even know what they were going for.
Yeah, Imai is pretty much perfect as Noire.
I suppose the reason (besides it not being bad) that I keep the dub on is why I wish Tales of Hearts R had a dub: when I can read the localized text and I can actively tell that's what's not being said in Japanese (admittedly Tales is much better about this, but they do change names a lot, so I hear Shing when I read Kor), it tends to create a bit of a dissonance.
Be careful anon you may hurt someone here with that opinion.
Though I do agree with you.
But yeah you can't beat Rie's PH. There's also no replacement for good crazy Rei.
Honestly I think companies should do 2 things.
If you're going to localize it a lot, provide a dub. If you're not going to dub it, don't localize it so much or you risk the fact that what is on screen is clearly not what the actresses are saying. At least when you dub it, you match what's written.
No chance, his heart belongs to Kuwashima.
though honestly I think he probably genuinely suffers from anxiety issues or something, which is why he's most comfortable around Nakamura who he's known since I think before college.
I'll admit they weren't always good, the original Neptunia was all over the place, as was Mk 2. Victory was ok, and I think Rebirth finally has it down. I heard it's because the voice directors give really different direction with each game, which goes a long way in affecting performance.
>I'll admit they weren't always good
The japanese actors did a much better job portraying each character.
The english voices sound forced, awkward, and out of place, not to mention monotone.
Shame, at least I know I won't buy any more Nep games coming on Steam knowing they added such a thing where he is not needed in future parts.
The games without male MC self-insert had to sell really bad if they decided on such stupid move.
>Also it's flopping hard in Japan
Can we please stop saying this stupid shit? It sold about 40000 copies in Japan. Victory sold 60000 and Re;Birth 1 sold 70000. Stop trying to misrepresent sales to force your retarded /u/ agenda.
Hate the game for breaking up your OTP fantasies, for being "easy" like every other Neptunia game, whatever, but don't make shit up.
As long as it sold less then the gay ones I'm happy. And I'm sure not everyone that bought it was happy how it turned out. Sales aren't everything.
>it's flopping hard
>prove that it isn't and is selling as usual for a Neptunia game
>sales aren't everything now
>the gay ones
I guess this is just what happens when you talk to someone with goggles strapped on so tight the blood stops flowing.
20000-30000 drop from best sellng games is a very big difference.
So it should tell the developers that they really had to fuck up something if such big part of original fanbase didn't buy it.
If they make the Blanc game the same it won't sell half of what GN did. Waifufags were fine with the subtext of the other games after all.
I wasn't the one that said it was flopping, but your madness is entertaining.
>So it should tell the developers that they really had to fuck up something if such big part of original fanbase didn't buy it.
Following that logic mk2 was also a huge fuck up both times.
You know the connection both have? Neither game have Neptune as the main character.
I love these but at the same time I can't help cringing while listening to them since I know deep inside what kind of audience they're meant/pandering for. Myself being one of them.
I'd stand in the rain for her concert any day of the week, any time.
>She nuzzles into your lap and starts to drift off
>Your erection pokes her in the cheek
>She gets super flustered at first
>Turns embarrassment into rage
>Violently jerks you off with such speed and fury that you immediately pass out after shooting everything you have onto her rage contorted face
>All while she's yelling at you and calling you hentai
>Wake up, your head on her lap, and she's quietly reading a book pretending not to notice you
She would regret doing it
I-I'm saving up for muh college degree.
Some sort of weird funnel gundam.
Fuck that cunt. She stole Neptune's Wings of Light, and turned it into a Fisher Price type of WoL.
Proper Funnel gundam. Best type of gundam.
I have heard you have to pay for it so I'll pass out on it. This saddens me greatly because BLANC
That's not the real problem.
>hey guys, installing it on your american phone is a lot simpler now!
>all you have to do is make a japanese google account then you set up a virtual private network and then you do this and then you do this and BAM you're done!!
Not everyone is an autistic prodigy with a master's in computer science.
What about legs?
It's all good in the hood.
