Just how long will Japan be allowed to have sexualized characters like this in their video games?
It needs to stop.
My first one was Disgaea on PS2. Almost finished it, but found it too slow and clunky. Where in a normal JRPG you just choose ATTACK and select enemy, here is:
>move your unit
Then LaPucelle, the same case. Then Suikoden Tactics, which I finished because I fucking love Suikoden. And thats it.
Tried the Disgaeas again on portable form, it helps, but I never got past 10 hours in them.
i wanna fug Etna.
Yeah, I can see some people not liking the way SRPGs operate. It might feel slow, cumbersome and unengaging.
The idea is that with all that comes the possibility for greater long term strategy than if the game was real-time.
But sadly some modern SRPGs get really dumbed down, strategy disappears and you're left with a boring game. (Not saying this is the case with Disgaea. Disgaea is okay gameplay-wise and should hook people with humor and characters.)
Anyway, try Valkyria Chronicles if you didn't yet. It combines SRPG gameplay with real-time action for each turn. And it newly on Steam for cheap. Or just pirate it first to see if you like it.
>should hook people with humor and characters
Yeah, I love its charas and humours, Prinnys and Infinite were tons of fun.
But, maybe someday Ill just find the patience to play the real Disgaeas.
I played VChron for a while years ago, but got busy with moving and I had to drop it. Gameplay-wise I found it way more fun than any SRPG.
No, it doesn't need to stop.
I dont know weeb, but does it say LIBIDO in there?
The MC is a pervert and the game ostensibly involves making girls orgasm to power up.
Imagine all the amazing games we would get from western developers if they werent held back by sjw bullshit. Instead we only get the shittiest of cheap shit from some shady amateur studios working for pornsites
Japan is the only bastion that is free from SJWs infecting games
We'll have to wait and see what it is about, if it's an actual game or just a fanservice fest that makes no sense.
If it's the first and it performs decently in Japan, it might have some chances. If it's the second then little to none, unless a localization company goes high and brings it out of nowhere, like Atlus did with Conception II.
Maybe send some mails to Xseed and what-not.

So is this import friendly like CGirls? Will I miss lots of the ecchi content thanks to DLC, like Bullet Girls?
Any chance IFI might bring it uncensored?
Not much English menus but fairly simple; JRPG where you issue commands through menus--very similar to SQ/"Etrian Odyssey".
No DLC other than a couple of special offers exclusive to Japan
But the game is currently being translated into Engrish (still better than IFI) and released in China, Korea, and other Asian countries, so possibly. It -will- be censored if IFI touches it though.
Nor many other Imageepoch's games.
>Criminal Girls (PSP)
>Tale of the Last Promise
>7th Dragon 2020
>7th Dragon 2020-II
>Chevalier Saga Tactics
Luminous Arc and Fate/Extra had the same reasons for not having their sequels localized: They flopped, as simple as that. Or at least they didn't perform well enough to make the effort worthwhile.
Also, some of the games listed were on the PSP, which in the west was swarmed by piracy. I think piracy killed some of LA 3's potential sales on the DS too. My reason for that is the fact that a very niche game like Criminal Girls Invitation was picked up by NISA (leaving the whole censorship matter aside) when the original PSP game was ignored.
The kind of games Imagepooch makes usually have a very small dedicated fanbase in the west, if you add rampant piracy on both PSP and DS you would have to cut at least a fraction of said fanbase, I don't think that's something they could allow themselves to risk.
That being said, even though the 3DS and Vita aren't as easy to crack (as far as I know there is no piracy on Vita yet and 3DS requires an inconvenient, expensive and easily block-able flashcard) it's not like the scenario is any better. I think it's going to take a while for localization companies to take the initiative again to bring niche games.
Nope. Marvelous took LA and handed it over to a different team, which is why a lot of LA fans are disappointed with the news.
Then Imagepooch announced Stella Glow, which is by them and for the 3DS, the succesor to the DS. They are pretty much saying "hey, we can't make LA anymore but fuck it, we're doing it anyway under a differente name"
So what's exactly it supposed to be about? it looks pretty for a chibi-styled game.
I'm interested as long as it's not a panty quest game or some retarded shit like that.
The girls with the hat is an evil witch who's crystalizing the world.
You're some dude from some village and when she comes to crystalize it, you're barely saved by some knights. You join their order and decide to seek out help from friendly witches.
>But the game is currently being translated into Engrish (still better than IFI) and released in China, Korea, and other Asian countries
So, maybe SAO HF-esque tier translation? I can deal with it.
>Criminal Girls Invitation was picked up by NISA
I really think that they are bringing it, only because theres nothing else at the moment they can bring.
Aside from that HoTl NIQ whatever and GodParadox 2, they have nothing.
None until it actually happens. Conception II was localized more than a year after it's japanese release, nobody ever talked about it past it's release, nobody asked for it, and it happened for some reason.
Don't ask pointless questions.
I doubt they picked up something expecting to lose money, even if it may not be something big like Disgaea. The point is, they picked something they didn't before, so they're now seeing a business opportunity that wasn't there before for some reason.
