No brakes on the Shantae Express
First for Shantae's dad is a huge fire-breathing Russian bear-man
Does anyone have those edits one anon made a long time ago based on this picture? I've been searching for them for a long time
People think the Karnov reference in the Village of Lost Souls is supposed to be her dad, despite the fact that he's bald and Shantae is supposed to have inherited her ponytail from her father.
is the location changing randomized? also that means i'd have to wait until i get to the 3rd labyrinth. how do you even beat Rottytops in the race? how do you slide through the trer trunk?
It didn't really, there's just a silhouetted lost soul you meet in PC that's implied to maybe be her dad. Also his silhouette looks exactly like Karnov and his theme is >>323575938 .
I wish there were more actually worthwile Metroidvania games on Nintendo systems so that I wouldn't have to pick up the Shantae games. I guess they are okay but nothing special at all.
i see. and the baby squids' colours doesn't matter right?
also can anyone give me the order of the towns from left to right like Desert>Scuttle>Water? kind of annoying that the game has no in-game map..
CANT U PEOPLE STOP MAKING THREADS ABOUT UR GENIE WAIFU ALREADY ITS ANNOYING
>You don't have to go on them you know.
I like Shantae games, but cut it out with the constant threads. Constant threads about a game or series are what /vg/ is for. /vg/ has a higher bump limit than other boards for a reason.
>This person is free to make these threads sether it's /vg/ or not.
Shantae threads have been a constant thing on /v/ for days now, they should be on /vg/. The same applies to those fucking Dead or Alive threads that are constantly on /v/.
>/v/ Rule 6
>"Generals"—long-term, recurring threads about a specific game—should be posted in /vg/. This is not to say threads about specific games cannot be created on /v/, just that long-term, recurring threads belong in /vg/.
While i love these threads, why is there no thread on /vg/? Seems like that should be prioritized.
It's your fault for demonising SJWs so now anything thats not SJW is now "based".
Shantae wouldve been forgotten by time, but now it's around and here to stay.
As long as you fight it, it will stay.
This is the first time they've been nonstop since the Kickstarter. And this is just the 3rd thread.
Which is nothing compared to Toddposting, or AGDQ, or whatever other garbage.
>But that doesnt make it a bad thing does it? I haven't been on 4chan for long so I'm not sure.
/v/ before /vg/ and /vp/ were created was fucking awful. /v/ has always been terrible, but it was especially bad prior to /vg/ and /vp/'s creation. Pokemon threads would routinely overrun the board to the point where you could have an entire front page of nothing but Pokemon threads. When /vp/ was created it alleviated the situation, but then you had the problem of threads about specific games or franchises constantly being on the first page.
So yes, it is bad.
>And this is just the 3rd thread.
Quit lying. Shantae threads have been CONSTANT on /v/ for the past week or so.
It's only been constant for the last 16 hours or so. A thread popping up now and then is not "constant".
>Pokemon threads would routinely overrun the board to the point where you could have an entire front page of nothing but Pokemon threads.
It wasn't like this 24/7, but more that whenever a new game was announced or released they'd explode out of nowhere, along with the constant activity of Pokemon general threads. Plus false flagging and people doing shit like making Pokemon generals, waiting for them to fill, then deleting them just to fuck with people didn't help. There was an active and concentrated effort to get Pokemon off of the board, far FAR worse than what you would occasionally see in threads like this or another where a few people would complain about their presence.
no. start your own thread.
i'm so tired of Shovel Knight fans going on irrelevant threads and trying to promote the game. you people are like the Yacht Club marketing team or something.
Why the butthurt over Shantae threads? There's a possible update soon, HGH is
probablycoming out soon, and it's not popular enough to warrant a general. Sorry to take up one spot that would be getting used for /pol/, undertale, or console war threads.
Just...I know some of you are enjoying the game and whatnot, but it tries too hard. Discuss it in /vg/ or Reddit or something, because it got pushed too hard on here to even take it seriously. Like Undertale.
>It's only been constant for the last 16 hours or so. A thread popping up now and then is not "constant".
You're lying again. I've been seeing Shantae threads constantly for the past week. As soon as one dies, another gets posted.
Oh wow yeah, that was one of them, but I was mostly hoping for
the edit of her with a cock
The streamer here. May continue shortly where I left off and push through the game and it's immense backtracking to see things through.
I was just wondering if there was any artwork of Shantae in a modern-day look; office colleague, farmer, shopping assistant, caretaker, etc.
Honestly I'm thinking it makes the most sense for WF to port PC to PS4 and Xbone this month (with hopefully a proce cut to $15) and a February release for HGH
That would be a nice way to incorporate that moveset into this game, considering Shants has her powers back now
Here's one with her and Rotty in a Western style.
Oh shit guys it's the Shantae thread police
You can have this Risky.
Ok. Here's cowgirl Shantae.
What's with the surge in Shantae threads lately? She normally doesn't have a general.
Not that that's a bad thing.
Darn it, I was thinking the word wrong, sorry. I meant to say farmgirl.
Here's a cheap edit of Shantae wearing glasses.
yup. she tries her best to get some though
It'll happen if we believe hard enough.
Same people who play MSF. Played and then forgotten. Occasional patty pics pop up and you go "OH YEAH".
Now Shantae is overloved and overexposed because of people screaming "BASED WF" in the age of angry boogiemen wanting tits gone and thus in retaliation the Shantae fanbase has attracted obnoxious fuckholes into it.
It's just a cute humble franchise by a company that does its own thing, but now it's overblown out of proportion by new fans.
I don't side either way, Im glad the franchise has it's life and isnt fading away like something like Freedom planet. Which has a new game coming but everyone forgets and cares less every time its brought up.
Really? I run into a Shantae thread at least 2 or 3 times a day. She's innocently lewd, brown and has pretty good games, is it really surprising she can manage to keep 4chan talking about her every single day?
Decided to try going on to flockmod and draw with company. I ended up drawing my first ever Shantae. Mind, I'm extremely rusty.
It's 'overloved' and 'overexposed' in your opinion. And every fanbase is going to have people like that, it's not just the Shantae Fandom. And just because some people 'forget' Mighty Switch Force does't mean other people do.
Well, that didn't scale too well. Here it is in it's original, thumbnail size.
As long as people still see it as that not-Sonic game, I doubt it. Still, it has a pretty sizable niche as is.
At least she can't be as small as Edward Elric, right?
All that Sky
Tell me. Which version of Sky is the best?
Not counting Twitch
Darn it anon.
Not that i can blame you.
To think Twitch is Shantae 's best friend in an alternate universe
Sky 's theme sounds strangly romantic and even erotic. The girl is certainly ready
ahh thanks for clearing that up.
I guess we won't see and HD remakes then if they are on steam.......
Regular. HGH, which isn't out yet, is the first game in the series with high-res sprites.
>Sky's theme is a remix of Water Town, which is where Bolo was in the first game.
>Bolo's theme is a remix of Scuttle Town's theme in the first game.
>Scuttle Town's theme in RR onwards is the fucking Dance Parlor theme for some reason
>Rotty doesn't get a remix of the Zombie Caravan theme
>no dance parlor to shake our superior hips and and get showered in dosh.
too bad really.
lets hope some mini games return in HGH
that Shantae 1 concept art
Add an extremely smug Rottytops everytime she wins and i'll gladly see it return
Sorry. These are from the original Shantae site.
Guess WayForward saved them as GIFs?
>Bolo pls go
i can so easily see someone like Bolo posting on here
A Shantae general would not last long anyways.
So it's impossible to just enjoy a game and not just pay attention to 'Waifus' and whatever you guys say about the fandom? Not every Shantae fan plays the games for looks. If you think this is the truth, you're just as shallow minded as that guy is.
Perhaps you could link the /vg/ thread in OP on these thread, that should drive some traffic over.
No, but it's not worth getting upset over.
What is the chance of an update today?
Well, that's your opinion on the series. But just so you know, opinions don't count as fact and that most fans play the games for the games. Not to mention that most fandoms have fans like that.
>What is the chance of an update today?
Don't think it will happen. Gladly be wrong though.
Anyway. One backer enemy to go. What do you want to see?
It's some kind of dancer, according to Matt. One of Matt's concepts for Ikki was to have Shantae get forced into a transformation by song. It might have something to do with that.
Not gonna lie, the only reason i went out of my way to find the one japanese emulator that could actually run the game some 12 years ago was because i saw the spritework in some magazine, it blew my mind that a GBC game could look that good so i just had to try it, has been a fan ever since, her design was probably a big part of my obsession so i guess it was some waifufagging to an extent.
Why do you keep making threads for a very specific ugly shitskin?
Now that he's freelance, I wanna hire him to do music for my game, but, there's no way I could have the money. He's so good he must cost a lot
>It's some kind of dancer,
watch it be inspired by brazilian carnival dancers or something
>tfw got MSF1+2 instead of Pirates Curse during sale.
Most likely you can't afford it.
Still. You could at least ask? no harm in that
as a matter of fact
based digits dont lie
all men are the same
through dick, unity
I was gonna make a snarky remark but i would be foolish to argue with quints.
evil samba dancer monster girls
Now i wish I had the money for the enemy creator backer tier back during the kickstarter
This is the final version that was submitted.
Ken Sugimori and Inti Creates(a Japanease Company who works on Shantae's games now) are fans of the series. Also a lot of posts on the Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Miiverse (Japan) seem to be positive about the game (translated them with google translate).
Anybody have any idea how to convert this into a gif?
>I risked my life for THIS? Really Mayor?
>You just don't understand art, Shantae.
Gonna continue streaming the blind Shantae playthrough shortly. I won't be able to have the twitch page open whilst streaming but I can keep this thread open if you have anything to say.
>Same people who play MSF. Played and then forgotten.
Speak for yourself, I love me some MSF, and still rev them up from time to time despite par timing a good chunk of the levels. And I'll be damned if I forget about Patty.
Shame MSFA flopped
2600 first week on dengeki, all we know.
very small shipment apparently.
>I love me some MSF
now that would be an artist challenge.
Not gonna happen unless you pay an artist to do it though.
Also. no molesting please.
Just regular girl love
When HGH comes out it's going to be my first steam purchase of 2016 lol
Other than DD and the ABAHB port, there isn't much else coming out soon.
guy in Japan made a prototype Shantae figure
and a different one
Streamer here. I give up on this damn game.
I thought I had enough worries having to deal with the non-existant guidance and endless backtracking.
Then I got to the Nagas.
Name one reason why I should complete this hellish game because it's on the verge of being unenjoyable.
Think it's time I tried this out now that I'm just wasting time wasting for Dragon's Dogma to release.
Which is the go to emulator for this? I heard it's can be a challenge to get working.
the original is defintely a skip
you're better off watching a walkthrough on youtube
risky's revenge is hit or miss
given how you are, it may be likely another skip
pirate's curse is a must-try though, so give it a go once you've caught up.
I honestly would not mind a remake for the first game
the original is not unplayable or something but it's best to watch a walkthrough first before jumping into the game. that's what i did and i'm not too frustrated with the game though i do think it does play cheap tricks sometimes. looking up maps and guides also wouldn't hurt. i'm just a casual gamer by the way.
Just played a bit to try out of it worked alright.
What's walkthrough worthy about it?
At first glance it just seemed like your average "go towards right platformer".
Only very charming.
Well Wayforward actually designed Half-Genie Hero to reintroduce the series but yes a Shantae "remaster" I wouldn't mind either although I think that maybe a waste of resources...
They could always re-use the pirate curse sprites etc to reduce cost one last time.
I understand they would rather focus on new stuff though
>What's walkthrough worthy about it?
assuming you're saying what walkthrough is worth it, i watch the one from Brainscratchcomms on Youtube.
i do agree that the graphics and the music gives it a lot of charm, which is why i decided to get it. just grind for money at the dance parlour and stock up on vials/float muffins/vanishing cream before heading out.
Would you guys play a Bran-Son game?
need to add his theme
>not even using the png version
/r/ing key-art size of this for reasons
quite a few people apparently. Even one japanese player got the He-man reference.
Another turned it into sailor Bran-Son though for.. reasons
no, i just made the original collage. And the american one.
Can these threads just die already? I'm sick of seeing this Shantae trash posted everywhere
I'll make sure to keep it alive just for you
Well, I think I'm done. I pushed onward and took the advice to use a guide and beat the Golem Mine and now I'm back to the Naga wasteland.
I feel as though I've decided this game isn't for me. Unending, required backtracking paired with mandatory optional items you need to grind and stock up on to progress alongside a zoomed in screen that makes the whole game a leap-of-faith death zone brings down the entire experience with NEEDING to use a guide being the cherry on top.
As a first-timer having experienced the game with zero bias, I can now say that Shantae for the Game Boy Colour isn't quite a diamond in the rough, but a small rock in the form of Shantae burried beneath 200 feet of sand.
The game has charm and potential but most certainly doesn't live to see it fulfilled.
Whether or not I move on to the next is up to you at this point because I'm completely drained of enthusiasm.
Shantae is a great character with great mechanics which get shat on by the game she's in - she can not be pushed to her fullest and thus the experience is greatly depressing to go through.
>Not belly dancers
You should be ashamed
damn how many shanti threads did I miss
God damn what is this picture, it was deleted.
It would've been fine, by the way. Pretty sure that was made here, anyway.
bracket tweestees (aka (jed)) hes my new hotness!
>Why aren't there more games about cute girls learning to be friends?
a good question. You can always use more of those games
You just suck at games dude. I played through the entire thing with no guide and I don't even know what you mean by optional items being mandatory. The only real issue with the game is screen size. But that's just a symptom of being on GBC
Well, I just finished watching all the cutscenes of the first game to make up for giving up on it. It sadly is very empty and does feel like a short, bite-sized story.
From what I've heard, Risky's Revenge is also mainly a skip with only one or two naysayers thus far.
Should I just watch the cutscenes for that and move on to Pirate's Curse to get to actually good gameplay?
>TFW there is almost no pregnant Shantae art out there
Besides, Karnov has no hair. And Shantae's dad gave Shantae her hair powers. I don't know if that means he's like Samson, or if he really does whip that tiny thing around.
The silhouette is still a Karnov joke though.
>Bolo came by, saw my pile of clothes, thought I'd melted, and buried them.
So I started playing Risky's Revenge on Steam. I just beat the squid boss and went to the mayor who told me to take something to the Ammo Baron.
Does this game get better? I don't feel like it's that great.
Well RR fixes all the problems you have although it isn't as deep per say you'll enjoy that one a hell of a lot more compared to the original, pirates Curse is the best game though
Eh its an alright experience (it was originally a DSiWare game) if you bought it I suggest refunding it and saving that money for HGH, if you pirated it just finish it then pirate the 3rd game ans if you enjoy that I highly suggest purchasing it to support WayForward
Too bad WayForward ended the Shantae account
If you niggers used bitcoin you could tip him a beer's worth
Good, we'll probably see a release date for no later than February (mostly so if can show up MN9). I know they spent a lot of time developing this game and from just that June 2015 demo I've played I can tell I'm going to enjoy the final product
Hard to say.
With everyone voting for Risky and Rotty, I will at least try Sky and Bolo first if i can.
Watch Bolo be a clumsy belmont
How much is beer to a shantae dubloon?
It is archaic - go play it without any guides and tell me the moment you get frustrated without using memes.
>Getting this mad
Or perhaps I'm merely looking at b8 or falseflagging, which is very likely.
Not them but I played all the games without any guides. The only frustration point I had in any of the games was with RR's map because it's a piece of shit in the original DSi release.
Honestly I just wanted to see if I'd get a reply at all so thanks for the (You) I guess.
I suppose Rotty could be a good Launch, now that she has two forms. Of course, there's zero chance her zombie form would be the "murder you in the face with a gun" form.
This one is good, it even has a download in the comments, not sure how easy it would be to get it to work with printer though.
>mfw have to go into offline status on Steam while playing Shantae or else all my normie friends from work will see it
>Interacting with co-workers outside of work
what's the worst that could happen
I would fucking love an NES or SNES cartridge of Shantae.
Honestly I like the fact that it's on GBC. Even though I'm not that wild about the game with its tiny FOV among other reasons, the sprite work and animation is fucking unreal for a game on that platform. It really is impressive to look at. The music is terrific for using that sound chip too.
I believe they even tried to make an snes game.
They tried a lot of different Shantae stuff. Remember the shantae from this pic?
The kind of posts we get do not float a general. It's just posting artwork and answering the same questions whenever a random anon stumbles in, curious about the series.
I wonder what fixated them to the character so much? I imagine most other developers would've eventually given up on a character with that troubled of a development history.
I'm glad they stuck with it though, I got into the series with PC and really enjoyed it. It's simple and not very deep, but has beautiful spritework and good music, and those can float a metroid styled game for me as long as the gameplay is competent.
Shantae was created by matt Bozon and his wife. So. probably pretty special because of that.
I guess dev troubles and publishers rejecting Shantae only made them more determined
Is it wrong of me that I don't give a shit about Cloud or Bayonetta but that Shantae would have made me play the damn game again?
I might pick it back up and see how Cloud and Bayo are, but Shantae definitely would've given me more reason to. I'd just want to see what her moveset is like and how a 3D render of her would look.
