When is Sen 2 getting released? I read it has futa girl, so is Xseed going to censor it?
It's just a comic joke since
she has the ability to shape shift at least her breasts.
I so would.
epilogue 1 after you beat the main story of Sen 2 as Class VII
She is not fat, fuck you
She's from crossbell, only one chapter appearance and you can "use" her in some other dungeon in coldsteel 2
How do you beat C in chapter 6?
Its bad enough that you just came from a boss fight, but this fucker and his two robot just fuck my shit up.
Faint only works like 50% of the time, and he's fast enough that he'll get his turn to kill you, whether you like it or not. The robots can also be dicks and use that aoe lightning skill that stuns your whole group, if they aren't channeling ancient glyph.
The battle is too long because of their ridiculous HP, that there's a high chance that in one of those turns, they will all use aoe's in succession wiping you out.
Basically have Rean and Fie constantly attack the robots while Angela attacks C, and Elliot uses healing arts/crafts. With Rean and Fie attacking the robots it'll constantly delay their actions.
Putting an impede quartz on Rean and/or Fie to cancel the robots magic is a good idea too
Too bad you can't cancel the robot's lightning AOE. It actually hits the whole map. and if someone gets stunned, well fuck.
I tried that, and its the only reason i somehow managed to kill at least one of them.
Problem is the battle is too long, and as i said, one of those times, they'll do some combination where they use aoe attacks and C uses S-crafts, and there's no indication when he'll use it, apart from his first comment when you get him to half health.
After that, he can use it whenever he feels like it and you won't know.
I'm positively sure i can beat him if the RNG just makes them not do fatal shit when i least expect it.
Can't wait to get myself stuck in some boss again. Yesterday I was stuck on that Chapter 5 old schoolhouse boss. Took me like twenty tries until last attempt went confusingly smoothly without anyone dying.
Maybe after Sen 2, if it sells well they might try bringing Zero after Xanadu. Honestly, I am not that worried for Zero and Ao since the fan translations are there for the two games. The problem is that I think that XSeed might not bring the 3rd since SC didn't sell that well.
Doesn't that have to do with a fairly high price for an old PC/PSP game mixed with the fact that not many people have even started FC yet and it's been on their perpetual backlog?
Yes, plus releasing the game 4 years after the first one didn't help, but all considered I feel SC barely sold to make even so I feel they would hesitate to bring 3rd here, and much less Zero/Ao. I guess it will depend on what Falcom wants, but I get the feeling that it really will depend on how much Sen 2 sells.
I feel like I'm part of the problem too. I bought FC ages ago, but I only just got around to playing it seriously within the past week and I'm in the middle of chapter 2, so I haven't even bought SC yet.
Considering I got paid yesterday I should probably just go buy it now, if that'd even make a difference at this point.
No real concrete numbers, but people have been throwing the 80k number around, and we know that it topped amazon's best selling games list and the special edition copies ran out when it launched. So overall it looks like the first Sen game sold really well, so not all hope is lost.
Just finish FC, the good thing about a PC game is that they keep selling over time, so it will be slow burner like the guys at XSEED said.
She just wants a sword bro harem, why is that so hard to understand?
See that's the cool thing, as long as the newer games sell, that will make people go back to the older games, so all is not lost.
Are 3rd and the Crossbell games as text heavy as FC and SC are? Apparently Sen was less text heavy which was why it was so much quicker and easier to localize.
If they aren't as text heavy, that could also factor into the localization of them.
I think 3rd is shorter than SC, but Zero and Ao are about as long as SC if not longer. So while 3rd would be easier to localize, you have to remember it's the sequel to a game that didn't sell that well so they might hesitate to bring it here.
I just wanna play as a police officer.
Though given Lloyd's cameo appearance in Sen 2, they could well localize the Crossbell games because casual players would be all "what's the deal with this Lloyd guy?".
>I just wanna play as a police officer.
Playing as a member of secret church police is way cooler.
I just want a full trilogy with Kevin and other gralsritters traveling around the world and wrecking heretics. Intro of 3rd is absolutely based.
I suppose the problem is that there's no point localizing Zero and Ao if 3rd doesn't get localized since that game not only acts as an epilogue to FC and SC but also sets up plot elements the Crossbell games follow up on.
They got away with localizing Sen because the first game takes place parallel to the Crossbell games, but I think for Sen 2 and especially 3, you'll need the backdrop of 3rd, Zero and Ao to understand what's even happening.
Would you guys prefer it if some other localizing company such as NISA got the rights on Kiseki and releases the games up to date but at the cost of butchered translation filled with meme ridden dialogue?
Xseed should be fine as long as they don't hire Carpe "I'm Gonna Kill Myself To Get Away From This Weebshit Prison I Made For Myself" Fulgur again.
Absolutely not. The dialog and worldbuilding are what makes this series unique.
I'd be fine waiting a year or two extra if it meant the games still came out with a good quality translation.
No thanks, look at the Gagharv trilogy by $camco, I wouldn't want a repeat of that abomination localization.
Shouldn't current Zero/Ao Estelle be above Lloyd? Otherwise SC Estelle = Lloyd.
Something like that. I mean, I understand why they would hire Carpe Fulgur, but between needing to hang over their shoulders to make sure they weren't cutting stuff out they personally didn't like and dealing with a suicidal self-hating ultraweeb, it seems not worth it in hindsight.
Only with Gundam, otherwise Lloyd is stronger.
Lloyd's last s-craft is one of the most over the top things in entire setting, he jumps out of atmosphere and comes crashing down like a fucking meteorite.
>Shouldn't current Zero/Ao Estelle be above Lloyd
Estelle only managed to learn her father's s-craft and we don't even know if it's his strongest s-craft. She's still mediocre given how little time went since 3rd to zero.
> read it has futa girl
Yes, that's right.
Pic related is an old hag futa whom you'd bully for fun.
I'd "sword"fight with her if you get what I'm implying
Nothing so far, so you know as much as we do.
That would be like having to pick between two bad options, no matter who wins between those two organizations, thing won't improve. Still it would be interesting to see that happening.
Would it be too much to ask if Falcom would actually made routes for different girls in Sen 3 IF Rean and the others are still main stars? I have not played Sen 2 and don't know shit about it, but apparently Alisa romance is really forced.
Falcom gives fans options to choose other routes, but it's super obvious they already have a "canon" route in mind for future story/sequels, and alternate romance options are just for the heck of it.
what I don't like about the soft harem route is that whether Falcom realises it or not, it neuters a lot of relationship development potential between other males & females, even from just a friendship perspective.
Well, I can say that Sen 1 strikes a good balance with how it develops relationships since while it keeps a part of it on the bonding events, the main developing happens during the plot so even if you never interact with a person you still get the feeling that they are close. Plus that way the core of their development always happens instead of it being optional like in Persona 4.
Still you are right that it hurts the relationships the rest of the class has with each other.
You get to pick the girl, but it's kinda like in Sen 1 where you get a couple of extra scenes and a confession scene (Alisa's still the most romantic of all). Basically while you can pick any girl (or guy), you can tell Falcom intended for Alisa to be the main.
Still makes me wish Alfin becomes the main girl for Sen 3.
I thought the the vita versions sold really well for them. It's not there's PS3 versions of the evo games. I'm pretty sure vita is a definite and probably PS3 too for those who've played the first two on PS3 don't get left out.
No platform. Just that it's in development, and will have graphical leap forward.
Expecting PS4 + Vita, where PS4 will be the version with updated character models, whereas Vita will keep the old style models.
>tfw forced to import sen 2 and possibly even 3 to make use my cleared saves
Unfortunate, but not that big deal. Would have been nice be able to import saves from US copy to EU copy, but whatever.
Yes for 3 chapters and the gaiden chapter you are mostly not at school. Only the short fifth chapter has you back at school but most of your game time will be in the final dungeon.
What's the best party to take into the final dungeon of FC? I'm thinking Estelle because she's forced on you, Joshua and Kloe. But I'm kind of undecided between Agate, Zane and Olivier for the final member, since Tita and Sherazard aren't really worth it.
Why does Papa Jaeger King allow his daughter to run like this? Didn't he taught her to dress better? Fie's outfit is just too lewd.
It's the Jaeger way. They live life on the battlefield and thus probably are expected to reproduce early.
Shirley dressed even sluttier.
That said Papa Jaeger actually did not want his adoptive daughter to be a Jaeger.
Now I get why Laura hate those Jaegers, that sort of lewdness is just immoral. Papa Jaeger really should have protected his daughter more and stopped her from dressing like this.
I love how godsend became a meme.
Wow how edgy, here have more Fie to calm you down.
Enough that one of the main girls has a yuri harem, and one of the sempais spends her free time running around the country in a bike to visit all her lovers. Still nothing to explicit on either the yuri or normal romance sides, just a lot of hinting.
Yes Fie is a gift from god.
I think the question is if Papa Jaeger would have accepted Rean for his little Sylphid. I bet he would think that Rean is too edgy for his daughter.
I doubt that, the Master will kill Cassius himself, the master always has to clean up for his students!
>Changed the name of the school
What no they didn't are you high, it's still Hanzou, Hebijou, and Gessen
As for the age thing that was moreso a legal thing than anything, due to the legal age of consent in America being 18. You could argue it's just a game but it's simpler to just cover your bases so nothing that actually matters needs censoring
Yeah that trailer and Ao no Kiseki original trailer got me hyped, not the evo one. Falcom is really got at baiting its fans.
I want to see Sen no Kiseki III trailers as soon as possible and plz use a cool theme.
I don't know man, just look at this.
True, but Cassius is too good to just be sent to the hospital, he would find some way to screw everything over even from a hospital bed.
Kevin already got his game like it or not. I just want another good mc and honestly Lloyd adventure was more interesting, also playing as police officer in a jrpg is fairly rare. Secret church agent are present in most japanese stories.
Maybe some fighting dude in Calvard or ex-yakuza, shit like that. Of course we put some church agents behind the scene.
Okay guys, I need more Fie pics, my folder is sadly empty, and oddly filled with smug Estelle shots.
Just finishing the game, and why is Rean so lame when giving speeches? It's like the guy tries so hard it just falls flat.
Have you accepted Estelle Bright as your lord and savior yet, /v/?
Ja, she might be a brainless bimbo, but she is so smug I can't help but like her.
Well Towa at least would make the speech cute I guess.
I love my brainless bimbo.
But Towa is not evil, why would Estelle fight her? Look at her, she is just so cute!
Pretty sure Lloyd still have a lot of work to do.
There's be a whole spin-off stealth game like that part in FC where you have to sneak to the church. Everyone love those right?
Is it because they skip work to go fishing?
I can't tell if Viscount was shipping Rean with his daughter or not. Maybe he just no pre-marital sex?
I know, I was asking about bootlegs and stuff but I don't think anyone would bother making fakes for this series.
It's a cult hit in other Asia countries but I don't think there are that many bootlegs if any.
On another note, I keep forgetting Hatsuu collects things as well.
I should've gotten the limited edition when it was cheap.
I don't think it's official so it's probably from China. Chara-ani was pretty jew for making 2 limited editions for Ao.
there's no known bootlegs being produced so you're good anon
If you want old ones probably. That or maybe get lucky on sites like Ebay.
Probably. I got my Rixia one through a chinese site with Taobao forwarding service. It was like 10 dollars itself but it ended up being $60 after all the shipping and forwarding costs.
$50 still isn't expensive for a LE that comes with 2 nendo petites and a drama CD.
>Decide to watch parts of Ao evo
>Guy is voiced by Kamina
>Cant stop hearing Simon and Kamina when ever they talk to each other
Since i can't really understand moon, what was guy doing in the World of Zero?
Remember that part in Gurren Laggan, where Simon have a talk with Kamina in the illusion world? The content of what they say is pretty similar. Also, the reason why Lloyd is there is because he wants to rescue his green haired loli that's trying to tell him to go away since she's a bad girl.
It's from the Chinese PC version of the game. So I guess it's kinda official.
I think he approves that Laura has someone she is interested, but he doesn't want Rean to do anything to her until it becomes something more formal. So no pre-martial sex with a bit of don't make my daughter cry.
Honestly, not that bad.
I haven't even finished FC yet. I just got onto Chapter 3 and my pace whilst doing all the sidequests is about a chapter a day, so it's not too bad. I should have finished the game by Monday, at which point I'll start SC and then CS when that's done.
The other dead guys rose and were going to attack us! They could have avoided this if the class had tried to kill them from the start, Rean should learn to stab the defeated soldiers to make sure they are dead.
Honestly, it was stupid, but hey it's not that bad.
I shot at her with my sword, not my fault.
Well you are supposed to win at that fight. Not to mention she's alone.
I'm more annoyed at c fight at heimdallr. I know i can win, or at least made him suffer, but the game didn't allow me.
Just keep stunning him, and always have someone with angel and that spells that revives at hand. Remember that you should be spamming Soul blurr and that craft Angie has that faints people, while having your arts user spam freezing spells, have Rean take care of the robots by spamming Arc Slash.
Probably survives, like all other bosses you can't beat during story mode.
Don't the heimdallrs C fight end after a certain number of rounds?
Atleast that is what happened with me, the fucking game just booted me out of combat and told me that I lost
It felt like a gigantic "fuck you"
>tfw misty sings whereabouts of light on abend time
Sara is a jobber
>reach the rail gun part
>at that point everybody on my party had better stats than sara
>hurr we were only able to win against S because we had sara
my fucking ass
Rean wasn't voiced in those segments of the game in the original voice work.
Typically the kiseki games don't get full voice work for the full scenario until the evolution version which is done by Kadokawa I believe rather than Falcom.
>Laura playing the drums
>Copy and paste animations for guitar playing
I hope to god theres better animation in Sen 3
Yeah, but their stat average is not that much higher than than the rest of the cast, so I feel they are not that much better than the other guys despite the story always hyping them up all the time, just like with Sara when she was playable.
I see what you mean, I guess it can't be helped since it was made by the same team.
What are you talking about, the guy is a cool old man who takes MIllium on field trips and just wants to make Erebonia great. There is nothing sinister and evil about him, he just dresses with style and has an imposing aura that commands the respect of all around him. As expected of best dad!
The guardians have pretty lewd uniforms.
She's the reason Fire Emblem Fates got censored.
Got stuck on Renne. I'm playing on PC so I can never get Kevin's S-Craft off at the start and don't really feel like backtracking to find anti-death and personification accessories.
I'll finish it someday. Probably.
I chose her as my dance partner
I regret it deeply, unfortunately my last save was just before the lord of shadows dungeon, and no fucking way im repeating that masochistic section again
Its just that shes too much of a tsundere, and those aren't cool when the guy is a dense fuck like Rean
Laura got that honesty going for her, she looks up to rean and got a crush on him that she admits towards the end of the game
Fie is also a valid pick
Never cared much about Emma
Laura is my number one choice too. She's perfect. Fie is just a cute girl for me that I like.
Emma got more and more annoying regarding of how much stuff she keeps in secret. Not a fan of personality either.
Fie is becoming a new family/care end, Laura is swordbro/harem end, and Emma is lewd end. Compared to them Alisa is boring since Jusis already does the tsundere thing even better.
And let's not talk about Sara and Towa.
>shitpost alisa on sadpanda
>shitpost towa on sadpanda
>comment instantly deleted with butthurt comment
Everything is part of muh training, wants to be more girly lol
Super-secret which is teased again and again and will probably be nothing
Shitty Joshua clone with cliche sleepy trait that doesn't even make sense
Every girl is bland.
She is like Joshua right after he gets taken in by Cassius. They were both child soldiers, both taken in by new nicer family, both starting to care about the people around them, etc. The difference is Fie's past gets blasted at you in one flashback and she has an annoying character trait.
Pretty sure Adol is going to be the final boss of the kiseki games, he is the strongest being in existence
Implying Adol wont just seduce another blue hair girl like Tio
But Fie understands her past, Joshua's arc is about him mostly suppressing his past only to then be forced to confront it. Sure they might have similar origins, but they deal with stuff in different ways.
Do it so my friend wont be the only madman who blew 500 burgers on this figurine
I like Fie a lot. She becomes the sarcastic girl and adds that light heartedness and actual sense of humor that the other girls lack, or rather everyone else seems to lack sides Crow.
Does this have the lamest antagonists ever or what?
Everytime you kick their ass or you foil their plans, they always go "it's all part of the plan" or "everything is still going according to schedule"
I understand that they succeed in the end, but even then, it's quite lame how they justify their losses, when if they could have succeeded, they could have benefited even more in the end.
Rean will joke every now and then too.
I also like how they laughed at Sara's speech.
It's more like they are good enough to cut their loses so they don't go all in or put all their eggs in one basket. They don't keep grudges and are flexible enough to change their plans when needed.
It's funny because Rean is a vampire with no heart.
Reminder that Mr. Tiddles is the strongest Sen.
A good plan accounts for uncertainty. Even if parts of it are foiled, as long as you get some results from it and don't lose people, you accomplish a lot. The railguns were probably the only real actual failure I think.
>Goddamit team, we have control of the railways guns, ready to fire in 5 seconds. Finally, we get our revenge. We can kill the chancellor right here. Fire!
>What happened? A blank was loaded? Reload it with a live one. Shit, the thors kids are here. Load that up while we stall them.
>Shit they beat us. Time to make a speech about how we really didn't care if the crossbell got bombed or not since it's still all good.
>we have a ship full of gundams anyway. The crossbell thing was just a prank.
Nothing you can say will make me change my mind on how lame they are. You just know if they managed to kill osborne back at garrelia they'd be jumping for joy, but the minute it fails, they have an excuse ready.
To be fair, the whole thing was really to make sure they concentrate on defending the fortresses on the border, as thing with Crossbell heat up, so they can do their attack to the center of the empire without problems.
The attack on crossbell was made first. G was literally a diversion so they could blow osborne out with the garrelia guns. They counted Gideon as part of the sacrifice the guns would kill.
It's just that it failed and Gideon was killed normally, instead of as a heroic sacrifice for the liberation front.
The thing is that even if it failed, it served the purpose to distract them from the real goal, invading the capital at the end. So the basic idea was that it was fine if they killed the guy, but if they failed then it was also fine.
What about the shenanigans with the first round being a blank? What a troll.
Does it have something to do with Zero's cold opening and how they
rewound time or some shit, especially since Sen's prologue started the same way? Did the cannons really go off in the prologue?
Don't forget that
Crowwas also at Garrelia fortress. So the railguns were definitely just a distraction, something that would be great if it did happen, but that would just be icing for the real plot. Not only that, but they probably didn't want to massacre innocents since they're only after Osbourne.
These wounds will not heal.
Is Patrick's father a nicer guy than the other lords?
>A Kiseki set in Calvard with a proper 3D Engine is a possibility after Sen
Can't fucking wait
Finally a game set in the best country
A country full of freedom and democracy
Like the United States
>game set in not-america
>its protagonist is an immigrant trying to get by
I'm playing through SC right now and it honestly doesn't have that much to do with Cold Steel other than elaborating more about Ouroboros. It's not like the events of SC were that relevant.
You goddamn idiots, Tom has gone on record saying that the ages being removed was never a ratings or legality issue, it was just done because some of his coworkers insisted on it because they were uncomfortable with it. Tom was pissed.
Chapter 4 right? You probably missed the part about having to go to the garden through the hotel tunnel during the day you had to inspect suspicious activities or weak points. I had the same happen to me.
I think Sora is good for world building and giving context for other games.
If there's one thing I love about Kiseki, it's the world building. Everything feels super believable and engaging, evne if the characters are kinda lame sometimes
like alisa. Orbments and the orbal revolution are compelling story concepts, and being immersed in the world from a variety of perspectives makes it all that much mroe interesting
that's my two cents anyway
>finishing up chapter 8 of SC
>get to this point
I literally yelled out "oh fuck!"
love it when best dad pops up
Yeah, while im not a big kiseki fan, I could certainly say that one of the things that attract me to the series is how tight the world is woven around and how consistent it is.
fuck, I should really play SC
For some reason I can't lay my hands on it for long, I loved FC, but I can't garner the interest to play SC
Will try someday, maybe if I get it for the Vita like I did with Cold Steel it will help my motivation
>For some reason I can't lay my hands on it for long, I loved FC, but I can't garner the interest to play SC
>mfw same thing with me
I don't know what's up with SC, but after playing through Cold Steel, I just can't get into it anymore. I've played it a bit before and I enjoyed it, but now I don't. I think it's just that the combat is so slow.
SC has a really slow start just like FC. But after the first few chapters it gets super interesting again, moreso than FC ever was. And the gameplay is improved a lot.
Use Cheat Engine and play at 2x or 3x speed.
I had 92 separate saves to prevent this from happening. Going through an entire chapter was painful, but so worth it.
Protip: If you want to meet conditions in field study fights, create a separate save file when you are taken to the menu to organize your party.
I don't think so. CS combat is fun and quick with easy craft usage, inflicting status effects out the ass, and generally feeling powerful. FC/SC combat is 95% spamming arts which takes more time in general.
FC got really tedious at the end of the game in the final dungeon. All I was doing was spamming Aerial and White Gehenna. SC feels a lot more fun but I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it coming straight off of FC.
First half of CS has great combat, but after a while it just gets tedious because the difficulty stops scaling. SC at least has some amount of progression/change throughout the game especially since you get a certain enforcer back midgame.
I think people are delusional if they seriously put the dull/boring PC games above Cold Steel. Cold Steel is a good game, regardless of the series it comes form. Yet there are so many elitists that are fooling themselves.
Cold Steel is braindead easy and the game is a shitty easy spamfest with literally 0 challenge.
SC actually has some challenge, and spamming arts is a shitty way to deal damage when crafts are faster.
Sen no Kiseki never progress quite like FC did, the characters lack impact and mc is not nearly as interesting as the previous ones, less Estelle. FC was slow, really slow but try to build believed relantionship between Joshua and Estelle, the message was clearly given at least.
While its true that Falcom moved around and tried to past forward its own presentation the game never really moved two steps away from the initial premise and most characters in Cold Steel give the feeling of “why are they even here?” Rean in fact is given the position of leader right away and you can see most females want him for no real reason meanwhile in FC nobody look up to Estelle and just in SC is when she matured that everyone realized she could be better as leader. Not to far from it Lloyd in Zero/Ao is similar with his harem basis but its a way better, already graduated from school the story start with his first real JOB as police officer, the rest of the game is hours of hours of dialogue where he mature and learn how to make a proper investigation dealing with drug leaders for example. Its a way more interesting.
I feel like there's a decent chance 3rd will get localized, since Tom's quietly hyping it up on the official forums, something I recall him doing for Pandora's Tower, Brandish, and Xanadu Next.
Zero/Ao could go either way, and I think it depends on a lot of things -- sales of Sky, sales of Sen, Falcom putting Ao on something viable, and even just a decent release gap in both company's schedules. The longer it takes for CS3 to come out, the better shot Xseed has at attempting Crossbell.
