More weeb games on Steam. Why is Steam becoming so fucking based?
>getting excited for shitty games solely because they are Japanese
This is just the beggining. As more and more indie doujin devs come to Steam, PC Master Race grows stronger. Soon they all will leave consoles forever. Took you long enough Japan, welcome.
I'm just happy steam is getting more shmups
Isn't that title like Windom except with magical girls?
Not anytime soon I'd think.
Which is a shame I guess because I just got into the series and it's surprisingly good. It looked like it was just cute girls doing weeb shit but (and it's still got that in spades) but as a series that shit's pretty solid.
Also for the love of Christ avoid the English voicing.
>touhou will never come to steam
>you will never sell a reisen profile background for $20 steambucks to weebs
Apparently Steam is getting more recognized in JP, but it suffers from lack of games.
That, and the fact that only hardcore jp PC gamers use Steam. I mean, fuck, Steam even got some fan games from Comiket greenlit.
I know it because Yoko Taro told me so
>you will never see an SMT collection on Steam that includes 3, DDS1, DDS2, Raidou 1, and Raidou 2.
To all people in ITT, please go into greenlight and vote for Vulkaiser and Armed Seven. They're fun as fuck and Steam needs more quality doujin games
You know what games that aren't just decent and got released on Steam ?
I hope the POP art game they made also get released someday.
True, but Xseed only has a few people. They should prioritize Falcom's better games.
Not officially confirmed, but the people who were working on the Zwei 2 fan translation actually posted about the status of it and basically said "Yeah, we can't talk about what's going on with Zwei 2's translation because reasons."
But, OP. That game is japanese! The only weeb game I can think of right now that is on Steam is Skullgirls.
I need more of Windom. Shit gets my dick hard.
Why we don't have more thread about Vanguard princess ?
The devs for this game have always loved Magical Girls. Their first game (from their dark side company) is a VN with magical girls tentacle rape.
>same devs as Battle Arena
Hope we get quality pantsu again.
Kamidori Alchemy maester soon.
>>No Lightning Warrior Raidy
The gameplay is meh but h-content looks like it was catered specifically for me:
>Game over rape
>90% is yuri rape
>Plenty of bondage but no hardcore stuff
not worse than Sega.
You pretty much copypasted what console peasants shitpost about anytime this is mentioned. Apparently they are so butthurt over Neptunia eventually coming out on PC they resolve to that. But eh personally I don't care about those games, I'd rather play this cute loli arena game instead than poorman weeb kusoge jrpg.
it's nore """shining"""" than shining.
Blame the retarded consolefags.
IFI said they were considering it which is why they added a PC ERSB rating as well. Though let's face it, the games in themselves aren't really good to begin with.
I was talking about artstyle, nigga. Dem westaboo japs make the best games art direction and overall feel and style wise. And while FFXII's core mechanics were quite underdeveloped the sheer amount of content made up for it.
If only Square emphasized on good things FFXII had and made combat more player involved with more character building options it'd be even fucking better. But instead we are getting Lightning everywhere and poor mobile ports of old hits, while other companies go for incredibly autistic moe style.
Where are my JRPGs with tons of content that look like semi-realistic western fantasy?
>i haven't played neptunia to be able to form an opinion on it, i'm just expecting actually valid claims for or against it
It's the opposite. Neptunia fan should be the one explaining why this game is supposed to be good.
why do weeb games always have to look so.... weeb?
i'd like to get them a fair shake, but there's just no way i'm downloading a game that looks like this
who designs video games that look like this? i mean it's just weird to think that a team of adult males with penises and testosterone came up with this kind of nonsense
call me when japshit doesn't look so cringe inducing
in this thread, sure enough, but unrelated that guy's spontaneous outburst of famboyism
if it wasn't obvious i consider anyone who takes pride in not being an idort equally as braindead
FFXII for instance, numerous hidden quests, many optional bossfights.
DQX with randomly (though quite shallow since there are not so many factors to be randomized) dungeons and optional bosses that require well thought out gear sets, that are rare or craftable. Approx. 300 sidequests.
So games that have vast postgame content.
You should see fly's system previous's game cast.
>get mitsurugi during the last sale
>it kicks my ass harder than anything in the last years
how the fuck do you beat very hard? i beat MGR but i cant with this shit
>trusting reviewers who played the game for barely an hour before shitting out their insufficient opinion on it
Because they are make by doujin artists to be sold to Otaku and cute girls will help that? Japshit doesn't look cringe inducing when it's marketed to normal fucking people. Take MGS and MGR for example.
I fail to see the problem. She's sexy. The company is known for making cute loli battle games.
They even used to make loli eroge.
>being this biased towards people with actual know-how
MGR was a casual as fuck, just like all Platinum games.
This is you.
Stop being such a fucking faggot
Great? No it's not. But it's fairly good. It had problems with the combat which they've been working on. The first game had a fairly original concept, chamring characters and played it as a fun adeventure for laughs.
It did very well for a low budget game and it never tries to sell itself as some AAA greatest thing ever. It has problems yes but you're not expecting it to be revolutionary either.
I think I read the other day that super buff white guys is a homosexual thing in Japan, so the covers of every western brown and bloom game probably looks like a gay porno cover to them.
let's not pretend american fap to french children cartoon. Isn't that fucking creepy as fuck ?
>there are people like this over the age of 10
american tend to be delusional.
japs play a lot Killing Floor and Arma 3.
Yeah, thats true. Swole as fuark guys are stereotyped as faggots, thats why Jap protags are generally lean-muscle as opposed to a bear. Then you have 'memes' like Gachimuchi which feature literal gay porn 'youtube poops', so it's not like the nips are full blown 'disregard everything that has muscles'.
Well of course there are. Just like in this thread we have people who liek the weeb games and have fun with them. There is certian to be some japanese who will go thru a WW2 fps game and enjoy it or play cod and have a blast doing so.
Imagine if you will that everyone has different tastes and likes different games than you or Truely a frightening thing!
Also you have no face.
>not trusting the target audience but rather people inherently opposed to it
i recall seeing a review for a VN on one of the major gaming sites
bottom line was "why is it so wordy?"
no fucking shit it's wordy, i want to know the quality of the words
if you're gonna bring something thay's not technically a game at all to a gaming site then at the very fucking least don't judge it by the same criteria you would an action game, how the fuck is that helpful or informative to anyone
wouldn't mind if this got greenlighted and have english text added.
I like the concept too but the execution is unbearably bad.
In this case, the "target audience" are autists who bought a shit game for cute girls, and continued buying shit games for cute girls.
They are literally delusional. Ask in a Neptunia thread and all of them will tell you "the first game is bad, skip it." Yet they all bought it, full price, then actually cared about the second game. Which was also shit. Then they bought the third game in spite of that, too.
It's actually much harder to get panties shot in Magical Battle Fiesta over their previous games where all the girls had super short skirt. I tried to make a quick game on the demo a bit to check it out. The main girl has white panties. It's rare to see them though.
Renting it like I did.
And you missed my point. They bought the first game, presumably for the cute girls only since it's made by a developer known for making nothing but garbage.
The game ended up being shit. Their response? "Well the sequel will fix it right guys!?" Then the sequel was shit. Their response? Buy the next game too, and the spinoffs, and the mobile apps, etc.
It's like Stockholm Syndrome. They love the series for holding their wallets hostage to shit games and promises that CH will actually make a good game for once in their career.
>It's like Stockholm Syndrome. They love the series for holding their wallets hostage to shit games and promises that CH will actually make a good game for once in their career.
remind me metal gear solid fanbase
>Then the sequel was shit too
Not according to the people you're very severely generalizaing right now. But do keep the generlization coming, I want to see what Neptunia fans who are actually the Legion (that gave the game a 78) have to say.
Now that's just pedo!
T-Thanks, just bought it!
Most of them, including you, don't give the reasons for it's actual problems. Hint: It's mostly the combat in the first game along with shares and grinding mobs for crafting mats in 2/V.
The story though is fine, it doesn't take itself seriously. The graphics are fairly good and the characters are likable. You get plenty of customization via costumes, weapons and accessorys.
There's dlc for extra characters and costumes, cosmetic stuff. There's some p2w dlc but it's not required to beat the games.
You may disagree but it would seem that if there are more games being made then it's still good enough to warrent them.
If it was as truely as bad as you think it is then it would of died after the first game.
Well, for starters, the second game butchered the concept.
Now instead of console wars with anthropomorphized cute grills as consoles, it's a preachy anti-piracy message that contradicts itself.
On top of that, virtually none of the most glaring issues with the first game are fixed either. They also started using the ugly 3D models instead of 2D portraits for dialogue scenes, which is just retarded and lazy. I could keep going on but I don't bother arguing with Neptunia fans anymore.
>You may disagree but it would seem that if there are more games being made then it's still good enough to warrent them.
This is a silly argument. You clearly don't understand how CH operates.
>Nitpick what you don't like
>say the game sucks cause it didn't cater to your tastes
Yeah typical "stop liking what I don't like" response. You're just looking for an excuse to hate the game and nothing more.
Yes, I could go in detail about every reason the game is terrible again, but then I would just be describing the entire game in detail, besides the character designs.
Thanks for your typical "stop disliking what I don't like" response though, enjoy wallowing in your ignorance.
Nah bro, it's totally valid. It's like saying CoD games sucks yet people keep buying them cause thats what they enjoy.
You don't have to like something. That's fine. But understand a basic concept that if it's truely bad then it won't sell (see DMC:DMC) vs something that's decent and gets enough sales to continue.
the only weeb games I don't like are bullet hell shooters.
I'm digging 100% OJ so far. such a cute, fun game.
Were you expecting the same exact plot? It's still a video game industry satire. Also, they heavily revamped the, y'know, gameplay. At the absolute least it's a significant improvement.
>I don't bother arguing against Neptunia fans anymore
Did you find a single person who rented the game and/or likes it but not enough to think it's the second coming of Christ, and realized your entire logic of the fans being a single entity which conveniently suits your irrational rambling of which party is more suitable to discuss a game, crumble?
Ironically, Donte's Infornication sold far more than Neptunia.
Neptunia continues to be made because it costs virtually nothing to develop. The game doesn't need to sell to be successful.
>It's still a video game industry satire
But it's still unfunny and on top of that now it's some preachy bullshit.
> Also, they heavily revamped the, y'know, gameplay. At the absolute least it's a significant improvement.
Revamping shit to be a bit less shit doesn't help. Nobody sane would play Neptunia for the gameplay.
>Did you find a single person who rented the game and/or likes it but not enough to think it's the second coming of Christ, and realized your entire logic of the fans being a single entity which conveniently suits your irrational rambling of which party is more suitable to discuss a game, crumble?
No it essentially comes down to, in the end, "well, it's shit, but I like it so it's actually not shit."
You can like shit. That's fine. It's still shit.
So do it then faggot. Show us how great a reviewer you are. oh wait.....
>I could go in detail about every reason the game is terrible again, but then I would just be describing the entire game in detail
Which proves my point. You ARE looking for an exuse to hate the game and nothing more.
It must be sad trying to get others to hate vidya like you do.
I wonder how people will react when Sora no Kiseki the 3rd is localized.
Yes, I know, >when
>The game doesn't need to sell to be successful!
>Derrr if a game doesn't sell it will still get sequals!
Logic is not your friend. Please, go back and try to fix your friendship. You really need it's help.
You won't regret it. It's fantastic.
>THEY RUINED THE WHOLE CONCEPT
>no they didn't
>...THE CONCEPT WAS NEVER GOOD
>THEY DIDN'T IMPROVE ANYTHING
>they improved the gameplay
>THEY DIDN'T IMPROVE IT ENOUGH
They improved it more in the next installment too.
>inb4 STILL NOT ENOUGH
Just listen to yourself. Don't talk about fans ignoring objectivity when you have no idea how to criticize a game and clumsily switch your points in literally every single post.
I don't really go for Shmups usually, but Astebreed kept my attention until I 100%d it. The blade and health mechanics make it quite different from others I've played.
>>no they didn't
But they did.
>>...THE CONCEPT WAS NEVER GOOD
That's the opposite of what I said. The concept is good, the execution is not.
>>THEY DIDN'T IMPROVE ANYTHING
That's not what I said.
I said none of the glaring flaws were fixed.
"Improving the gameplay," in this case, did not fix the flawed combat, because it's still garbage.
They put scotch tape on a decapitated stump to try and stop the bleeding.
>They improved it more in the next installment too.
Now they have duct tape on the stump.
You couldn't be more wrong. These are some of the worst japanese indie games I've seen in a long time, the ones that self publish are still miles better than this crap. But steamdrones will eat it up
Man, it was just a scene where towels got added where there weren't any in a hotspring, there wasn't anything to hide in the first place and carpe fulgur themselves said they did it in the first place because they were too chicken shit to ask their steam rep if the original uncensored picture would have been ok and sounded like they were afraid they wouldn't have been able to put the game on the store at all if they had shown that to the rep even if they had censored it afterwards.
So all in all that whole shitshow is a big handwave of WHAT-THE-FUCK-EVER
The concept is still a video game industry satire, the context is different because that's a thing with sequels.
Your analogy makes no sense and can be applied to every single improvement in video games. To begin with they didn't didn't "treat" the original flaws, they scrapped them altogether, and went as far as to remove the first game from the continuity, even putting the combat aside. Claiming that an improvement amounts to polishing a turd is empty as fuck and in this context wouldn't even apply as a shallow rebuttal.
MBF is all right. I didn't think it was good as other arena fighters, though. I probably need to patch my copy.
dude, jap just love Killing Floor
Or arma 3:
The yoften have thread about them on 2chan.
>his reaction image folder doesn't consist exclusively of dragonzball p screencaps
I already knew about them and loved them but this video got me thinking about them again.
I played the demo for that Revolver game and now I really want it on Steam. I hear Playism is bringing it to PS4 yet there's no news of an English PC release.
>Fairy Bloom Freesia
Fucking 3rd boss is actually cancer, biggest cheese-fest I've ever seen, and the worst part is, said boss can't be cheesed either. Who thought it would be a good idea to make a boss that has two melee attacks and the rest ranged, as well as the ability to spam attacks that can take your guard down in one set, and take your health down by half, as well as home onto you.
But i tought it was just the ultimate weeb game and was good just because "Dang mayne look at those lil' girls"
And you're saying it's actually not bad ? That's a surprise i guess.
Shit that looks really fun. Added to wishlist to remind me to buy this fall.
It's actually a bad game, has funny dialogue and some nice designs, but that's all.
The combat, animations, and dungeons are all quite terrible.
I just realised i got these posts all wrong.
I'll keep this game in my nope list.
In this case it's more like a glass of clean water, the other glasses being some mexican and korean water.
>i want to be a little girl
Why don't we have a first person loli simulator yet /v/ ?
>Implying SMT isn't dead in favor of Persona
Yeh I don't think we'd get that since Steam isn't a porn game agency. Personally I'd rather it stay like that.
The lewdest games are in Gundeadligne where you see stuff like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osjh8PhYxXA and even full nude with nipples.
It could have multiplayer tea parties
But midgets can't wear cute clothes
>When the fuck did we get a printer?
>Shouldn't you be on the roll forming machine?
>It could have multiplayer tea parties
Okay, but don't bully.
I wish I could fuck drawings and then get some "shame badge" I would have to put somewhere on display, so saying "penis no" would actually save me from demerits of fucking drawings.
>the game's released on playism
>no reason to delay the steam release
You have to do critical counters to complete the game on Insane mode. Practice on the last boss as it gives you time to get use to it.
You need to do this otherwise you can't beat the headless sword guys on max difficulty
Here is my profile if you don't believe me since I beat the game on max difficulty.
Why won't they let us have nice things?
You could even trade clothes and accessories
>ur dress a shit
>she uses drill hair!
Flourish isn't needed at all. Just need to abuse the Divine Wind in opposite direction > Tsumugi back at them technique for knights.
There's a guide describing the method in the steam guides for the game. I'm a complete scrub and I beat the game on very hard and inferno by abusing divine wind.
The only boss I legitimately learned how to fight properly was regular Suzuka.
Speaking of lolis, does anyone know where I can get some 3D models of lolis?
I just started playing Recettear and FUCK, those dungeons are deceptively dangerous. Even the slimes hit like a truck.
And It's like they specifically set out to design everything to be aggravating.
>Those randomly hopping mushrooms
>Fucking boulders, where half magically don't have a shadow to judge by
>Those goblin guys throwing rocks from off-screen
Wouldn't be surprised if Reddit ended up scaring off the the AoS devs because of their greed.
Reddit is on a Holy War against them for not offering steam keys in a previous bundle which was DRM free. There was a Groupees bundles that offered steam keys, and they delivered. Before that, there was an Indie Royale bundle about two years ago which was before they were on greenlight or steam, and they're not giving steam keys for that one.
Oh yeah, it's also possible to speed up the Suzuka fight a considerable amount by divine winding her while she's charging. The opportunity to do it is a short, but a full divine wind shaves off an appreciable amount of health from her.
Other person here. Alright anon, I know you're tired of this shit but so am I, so humor me for a moment Ok?
I don't know what makes people jump so hard to defend what they like. Maybe it's the feeling of being judged or something. Point is they rarely admit to flaws or guilty pleasures.
I'm not a big fan of this kind of material. After seeing the first game I was honestly annoyed that something that bad got brought over (then again like you say, it's super cheap and relies on very little sales to recoup costs).
But even hating the series, I can't deny that the improvements to the 2nd and 3rd instalment may have brought it up to average levels. Maybe I'm the exception rather than the rule but I love numbers. I like fiddling around with long dungeons, making positioning choices, heck even the combo system feels pretty ok. There's better stuff out there sure, but this is ok too in between those better games.
All this doesn't change the unpolished resources and crappy aesthetics, but I can recognize the developers have attempted to improve that. Not having a good framerate for the first game was criminal but that's no longer a problem for example. Yet again though, that should be something granted.
I'm not one for anime fanservice. Seriously here, I couldn't care less what's censored or not these days. But for some reason I derive enjoyment out of the character interactions and I do believe they are mostly well written for a dumb, comedic plot. Heck, the big dumb video game crash plot and the anthropomorphised flaws from it genuinely had me interested. But hey, maybe I have shitty taste in humor/comedy.
So in the end I guess this is all one big, shitty guilty pleasure, but I cannot deny there exists some good in there and some attempts at improvement, if small.
Only dubious quality indie stuff though.
>no Valkyria Chronicles
Fuck you, Sega.

Fuck you, Koei.

You can just emulate these and pretty much everyone and their mother played them already but it's seriously fucking dumb they didn't make PC versions for them along with the console versions. They're just leaving money on the table.
Just how is it possible that japs are so shit at business? Just what the fuck is wrong with them. There's also how Censor Fulgur didn't give Recettear trading cards. Apparently that was the decision of the japs. Just how the fuck? Whoever doesn't like cards can ignore them. Whoever likes cards can collect them, sell them or craft them. And it's free money for the devs/publisher. Everybody fucking wins. But no. Just fucking retarded do you have to be?
In paradise, it would be possible to fuck Vanilla dressed as cattleya.
Just started Asterbreed and wow, holy shit this is fucking awesome
>Developers of 2 Glorious games: Ether Vapor and Fairy Bloom Freesia
Well then its a no brainer. Off to buy that shit asap. I'm not even a fan of shumps.
As for the topic discussion, "weeb" games can be from good to pure dogshit. Its good to have pandering and lolis or whatever but if the game mechanics/gameplay aren't good it really doesn't amount to anything. Those are all subjective aspects sure, but in the end if I wanna "play" panty-shot quest then all I have to do is read a VN.
>people they don't like must stand in the foot box
At least in the west you can get close enough to hoverhand
I hope they release that game from the same devs.
The Japanese PC market is miniscule compared to the west. More often than not PC ports for these kind of games don't serve as a supplement for the original moon audience but to shut up the western one.
I don't give a single fuck about the Japanese PC market. They shouldn't give a fuck about the Japanese PC market either. These are localized games, they are selling them outside of Japan and not to shut up people but for goddamn profit. Not putting them on a platform with 7 million daily active users is just fucking retarded.
I'd rather have a discussion that amounts to something, and those don't often involve people who think "it's shit but I like it" is in any way meaningful and that people who disagree are just in denial.
I hope so.
Web fans are gonna buy web games.
If its a PC exclusive they are just gonna buy it on PC.
And half of web games don't even push the respective systems to its limit.
Most of them ether look like ps2 games or have 2d sprites or artwork for characters.
I which niponichi who'd release Disgaia games on PC as an experiment to see how good it who'd sell.
It certainly isn't ZOE/ACE but for a shmup its got very interesting elements like Ether Vapor. Sword attack for example and you can hold the button and a direction for a dash slash in that direction. After that there's various shot types and I imagine the game will give you even more tools both for close and far attacking in the long run, I only played the prologue.
Plus it looks to have a nice story which is always a plus. Give it a try, that's what
Does the magical battle pantsu game has a multiplayer?
Easier to flourish for me, they go to red straight away using divine wind requires at least a few hits before they can be executed.
You have to flourish in her first form start mucking around with that divine wind will end up causing chip damage. 2nd form a combination of flourish and divine wind is enough, but you have to learn to dodge those ground lights there is only a small time frame you can do it in.
With the minor enemies you have to divine wind especially on inferno 1 hit = death.
Here's my profile
>mfw their mobile market picks up pace
And that's exactly why they're fucking shit at business and 90% of their industry is now stuck with mobile games and handheld diarrhea, unable to advance from PSX-PS2 level productions, and why the cutting edge games they used to pump out now take them a decade to make. They cannot adapt, they're just retarded.
But that anon did try to make a point or two. Unfortunately they also seem to be drowning in self-shame.
If you're still here anon, don't beat yourself up for liking things for their better features.
Gah, I keep messing up my sentences due to being sleep deprived. Anyways it's possible to complete Very Hard and Inferno difficulty in Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae without flourishing once.
I like Japanese games exactly because they don't put production values in front of everything else- or really anything else.
Tapping a market which indeed might make them money, putting the appease of people who are incapable of playing games due to outdated production values forefront, shit like that. Had that been the case we'd have another clone of the western industry which for all intents and purposes is killing the industry. Slippery slope, granted.
Every time i see a thread like this, i almost always end up buying the game in the OP.
Thanks for doing my job.
Were the PS2 era Japanese games killing the industry for you? Or did it seem like they only made western game clones? Not to me. Quite the contrary, it's NOW that they're one sided.
I only buy anime games to sell the cards and backgrounds for more than what the game cost. For some reason weeaboos really like to overpay for these. I bought Vanguard Princess for $1 and got 9$ form cards.
You actually WANT to buy a console next to your PC that should be able to play those games, and then buy separate consoles that are nearly identical in terms of power? Damn. Do you also want to pull money down the drain at times?
