What could possibly be lovelier than Black Sister?
Nanameda Kei's artstyle has gone a long way since Mugen Souls.
Looks more detailed and poofy.
Vert's VII waifu disk is the best.
Prove me wrong.
Protip: you can't.
>a lazy piece of shit who has no friends
Looks who's talking, you Lonely Heart!
Neptune and Nepgear plz go.
We'll do that right after gehaburn gets fed.
>implying Playstation needs to be fucked up
I remember having to flip my old console around to be able to play. There was always that little moment when you're not sure the game will work.
To be fair I would also abuse Uni's ass if I could.
Am I the only youtube is broken for? It is just a bunch of boxes and no video
You're not -role-playing- are you, anon?
How is it role-playing if we're all little neps?
Is there any other answer than Nepgear?
Now that is so close, i wonder, how has IFI deal with Uzume and
Kurome, Eng. Dub?
Both of these, in the Jap Dub have a lot of emotion in their lines,
and it's a shit lot, have you heard those Kurome lunacy screams?
By watching how they handled Rei [as in, shit, compared to the Jap Dub], my expectancy is really, really low, at worst,
there won't be a scream at all
I'm not, see
>my expectancy is really, really low
Well, i kinda do
Not that it matters, i'll still play it with the Jap dub
But don't you wonder how they'll deal with that
>Corrupted Purple Heart [in the Bad End]
>The Dark Goddesses
On a scale of goblin to literal goddess, how attractive is Noire?
How is that even a question? Do you not praise every day, brother?
Man I know it costs money to get non-shit voices but it can't cost THAT much.
I know a lot of people like it too but I can't really stand the voices knowing how much better voice acting I'd heard in other localized games.
I honestly haven't heard it but I'm guess they are just bringing back the old voices.
I don't mind if people like them in fact thats kind of nice. I keep it on Nippon speak because I'm trying to learn it.
However I think it's simply wrong to say they couldn't have done a much better job in the dub. They sound like older women impersonating younger women which really isn't something optimal when the talent is there for such a thing to happen.
That's localization companies for you, they don't affect the series' reputation in its original country. Similar reason to why Japan don't have the PC ports even though they sold more overseas.
I'm not whoever you think I am.
Yes I understand that, I meant that dubcucks are the cancer killing the series for this audience, not that it will stop being produced
>Man I know it costs money to get non-shit voices but it can't cost THAT much.
It's got nothing to do with the quality of the voice actors. I've heard most of the english VAs in other works, they are perfectly fine talent wise.
The issue is with the voice direction, also known as "IFI does not give a shit". Even leaving aside how some of the VAs are horribly miscast for their roles (Noire's english va comes to mind), the instructions that the VAs are given and the enforcement of the tone just plain isn't up to par. Take a look at Blanc's dub in RB3 and U, for instance, where they just put her in constant White heart mode for no reason.
You're that same faggot who said that it's the dub's fault the translations for R;B2 and co. were shitty. Play Tales of Hearts R and tell me again that a dubless game guarantees quality translation.
V-II is shaping up to have a less terrible localization compared to the post-RB1 Neptunia titles IFI have released. At least they haven't touched the pure normalfag audience and I doubt they ever will because of the series' cute girl anime style.
Well I guess I'm a bit off a similar opinion on IFI
their direction for what the voices should sound like was pretty shit. I'm for preserving the original shit and IFI has made it clear they aren't.
Most of the blame goes back to them but I'm still a bit salty they didn't get prime time voice actors because I personally think it makes a different.
I'm throwing a lot of opinions around but in the end of the day I fucking hate having to deal with the developers gay personal inputs. Don't get me wrong I really like the games and could enjoy them despite forced memes.
>Most of the blame goes back to them but I'm still a bit salty they didn't get prime time voice actors because I personally think it makes a different.
It really doesn't. They have more experience, but as long as the VA has a voice that fits the character, voice direction matters much more than the quality of the VA itself.
Also, the upper price range for "prime time VAs" is alot higher in the west than in Japan, so it's really not something they can do without access to AAA level budget.
>I'm still a bit salty they didn't get prime time voice actors because I personally think it makes a different.
I really don't think a small little game like Neptunia warrants shelling out for "big names"
For what it's worth, a lot of the cast has been in the business for years, and those that haven't have shown to actually give a shit and stick around to improve.
And where's the irrefutible proof that this is SPECIFICALLY the dub's fault? As in, if they didn't dub the game, the translation would've been automatically magically good?
I only posted the screenshot just now. My two cents is that the dub doesn't suffer from a voiceacting problem as much as it suffers from those goofy lines. Any top actor could sound bad by reading things like this.
FREE THINKER HOURS
TURN UP THAT CRUNK AND JAM IF U LIKE THE DUB
SMASH DAT MUTHA FUKIN LIKE BUTTON IF U ON THAT DUB SHIT RN
It also had the worst dub ever in the franchise because half of them didn't know what the fuck they are doing and all the miscast VAs are all the more obvious because they weren't able to cover it up with skill.
It's like liking Phantom menace.
I thought the whole selling point of the original games JP casting was that the VAs were playing against their most well-known archetypes. I think NISA was trying to do something similar.
I guess Uni is one crazy fucker then.
I still like her
This is the first time I've heard about it, but if it were true, Nisa clearly fucked up, because there is a difference between "playing against archetype" and "having a voice that does not fit the character".
You expected the usual right?
But still, fuck yourself.
Superior goddess. Everyone looks up to her.
why no Jojo style
David does both anime
Please complete this phrase:
"I want to ____ inside ____'s _____."
I want to be adopted inside Vert's family.
Is Uni the Lockon Stratos of Neptunia?
any Canadians order from iffy before? just wondering how late I'll get victory 2 compared to the burgers.
Tsun character. Really pushy. She always has a strong opinion of what she and IF should do next, but she usually can't explain why because she lost her memory.
Son, you high.
I guess I wasn't worthy. Feels bad man.
Don't get overly excited about Nep U. It's fun, but it really isn't that amazing
None of the spinoffs really are except GekiBlanc, and even then it's still discount Senran. Seha's arguable only because it's essentially a mainline game with half the budget.
U has great music, though
Blanc has better gameplay than U, but it also has more events, and that's just as important in a series like this. If U just had more interesting events and dialogue, I would have been able to look past most of its flaws. Now, I would recommend just waiting for Blanc to come out instead, unless you are impatient or just really want U's trophies/achievements.
Vert is a winner because she
actually plays video games
Reasons to like her A and B
But you've got to admit, she's got such huge, comfy-looking
V HDD > Original HDD.
You can also like an outfit because it looks neat
>Do they really call the NX U2?
No, I said it sounds like it. You know, the same way people were calling the Xbone the 720 before Microsoft gave everyone permission to make penis jokes about their console.
>you make it sound like NepU didn't already sound like a WiiU game.
It's didn't sound any less retarded then, but at least that had the excuse of it being it's actual title. Gekiblanc does not.
>tfw not selected for beta
If that was true, she'd be higher in popularity and while I don't doubt some vertfags only like her for her chest and for being a hardcore gamer, she's a great and likable character.
Her Vii disk, and frankly her entire appearance since V begs to differ. She doesn't appear very often in Gekiblanc, but her few appearances are one of the best depictions of her in a long while.
She didn't even place in the top ten, so what the fuck do you think?
Post yfw Compa placed lower than Peashy.
So can someone please explain to me why it seems like people dislike Elizabeth as Noire? I am actually curious. She won me over in the anime imagining her screaming her lungs off in the studio
during the anonydeath confrontation. Also, I keep hearing her best Noire is in U, but from what I've seen, she sounds almost the same and during combat she appears to have the Black Heart voice always on.
That poll was a poll asking specifically who should star in their next spinoff, and that resulted in GekiBlanc and Seha getting made, so, yes, there is a direct correlation between how high a character placed on that poll, and how likely it is for a spinoff to be made about them.
Bear in mind that this was before VII or even the first trailer got released, so the only thing anyone knew about Umio is his appearance. I don't think his VA was even announced yet back then.
Reminder that no poll will show the true greatest character
So should we be expecting a Neptune, IF, Plutia and Vert spinoff someday?
Coupled that with CH saying there will a surprising announcement for fans makes me think we're getting a Plutia, IF or Vert spinoff this year.
It apears that I am the .0009% of people who enjoy both. So I guess so? I use both languages, sometimes prefering one delivery over the other. That's it. I have empathy for the voice actors.
That, or I'm just "naive".
Segami is willing to extort in order to get what she wants. She does it to Neps or to SeHa. Iffy was keeping the brakes on her, but she stopped after Histoire told her that they could just go nuts as history will right itself and Iffy won't just disappear from doing this.
Their relationship is similar to Haruhi and Kyon post-disappearance.
>plays it twice in a row
A good night indeed.
>3 times in a row
has anyone gotten their keys yet, is my dream dead? will your response saying that you got it be a lie?
>Segami is willing to extort in order to get what she wants
That's an understatement if I've ever seen one.
"If her wounds won't ever heal, that means that the two of them won't ever fight again, right? Right?"
this isn't relevant to neptunia but due to the guy frequently posting disgaea references, i bought and played disgaea 5 and as it turns out it was really good, recommend it while waiting for more neps
Why does Segami remind me of Aqua?
Here's your reply, master baiter.
What the fuck is that? Several characters have it.
>tfw there are people in this thread with such shit taste
Histoire is so hilariously broken in this game that Arfoire's fight was rape.
>there are people that hate tsunako in this thread
>there are dub users in this thread
>there are people that enjoy doerrisms
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised anymore if Gandhi and all of the Smurfs browsed this thread.
Totally desensitized now.
Null category removes the resistances (if any) granted by monster types. For instance, machine type enemies normally only take 50% damage from physical attacks, but a character with Null category ignores that and deals full daamge with physical attacks.
>there are dub users in this thread
>there are people that enjoy doerrisms
Nothing wrong with those.
I do like it better, although they left in Ge-Ge and at times were too stiff. There's a sweet spot in balance, but choosing between memes and the original, I'd take the original any day.
>"waaaah how dare you like what I dislike!!!!111!!"
Yeah, go back to kindergarten, come back once you've grown up.
And stop trying to shove your own shit down everyone's throat.
>get ubermad that people aren't licking his ass for making an edgy re-translation that is just about replacing Doerr's shit with a different flavour of shit
>"y-y-y-y-you're just mad!!!!!"
And this is why kids shouldn't be allowed on 4chan, ladies and gentlement.
>"boy I love the translation"
>"OMG HE LIKES LICKING DOERR'S ASS IF YOU DON'T PLAY OUR PATCH YOU'RE NOT PLAYING THE REAL GAME"
>"that's not what i said, I just"
>"OMG SO LE BUTTHURT"
>"No, I'm just saying-"
>"OMG SO BUTTHURT"
>"Look, I'm just saying that-"
Typical drones. You don't even deserve a (You).
I wish they'd find that balance already. The retranslations and RB1 were bland and flavor less and the only alternative is Doerr coming in and dumping a whole bottle of ketchup on it.
>Posts this >>128748014
>Claims to be the reasonable one
Anyone have a better quality image of this? I couldn't find anything better.
It has Plutia in it and I must aquire all Plutia pictures.
I shouldn't have lumped them together. RB1's problem was different. Mostly awkward sentence structuring that made it abundantly clear that whoever translated it probably wasn't a native English speaker. Nothing on Asia region translation level, but could use a editor. Preferably one with a little more restraint than out friend.
Friendly reminder that localization complains go into the trash bin, along with fanmade patches and complainers.
You've used the same repertoire the entire time you've been here. I'd appreciate it if you got a little bit more creative.
I imagine you'll get a lot of responses now that some of the old blood has been replaced by newcomers who don't know better. At first I really didn't like you, but I kind of prefer it when /nepgen/ is exploding. It's fun to watch as a kind of spectacle.
If you just do the story normally you'll get about 30-40 hours from 1 and 2, and a little more from 3.
If you're a completionist faggot like me and do all the quests, optional dungeons, plans, etc, you'll get over 100 hours of grindan.
Endings are determined by your shares in RB1 just get over 20% in each dungeon and 0 in Others before you finish the final dungeon.
In RB1 a single playthrough should last around 30 hours. I replayed the game from the beginning to get the true ending, so I ended up with 60-odd hours.
RB2 a whole playthrough will last around 24 hours, and the rest of the time will be spent collecting the different endings.
U and PP are both very short unless you plan on 100%ing them.
I haven't played RB3 or Gekishit. RB3 is probably the longest of the games.
Segami would stop at nothing in preventing Neps and SeHa from setting the world on fire. I feel for Iffy, since she had to look at Segami's actions while worrying if her existence will be completely erased with Sega giving fuck all to history.
About that only thing that was terrifying for Segami was being tenderly loved by Iris Heart, but that only steels her resolve some more in going all the way and not taking "no" for an answer.
Honestly, it makes way more sense if Segami's retconned as the founding goddess of Planeptune.
>only thing that was terrifying for Segami was being tenderly loved by Iris Heart
Not this fucking shit again.
It's part of the point. She is a very abrasive character on purpose, both to other characters and to the player.
For what it's worth the game is very good at making her grow on you.
I forgot to add that there's plenty of Iffy and Segami on Nepbike action in that game.
FYI, Nepbike actually offered to Nep Neptune and Uzume.
Btw, Nepbike actually rammed Nepgear so hard that she passed out. It wasn't just NepGear horse ride play.
First of all, it's a spin-off and those never seem to have any effect on the mainline series. Second, in the game itself,
Segami is confirmed to be a different existence to the Goddesses anyway. It's like comparing gods from two different religions.
Don't worry, it just made her want to beat the living daylights out of Iris Heart more.
In fact, with the looping system, you could choose to always beat up Iris Heart instead of Mega Drive (at least for their first encounter, if I got it right).
Sega.inc didn't become Sega.inc by being sugar, spice and everything nice.
Wait till Segami rub it into Buran about how Mega Drive and her American counterpart Genesis did what Burandon't.
Oh she is.
There's abit of it in the original HDN back when Blanc was semi tsundere towards Neptune because of the whole Sega-nintendo thing. That dynamic went towards Noire instead in Mk2 for reasons unknown.
HDN and MT. The former is more or less the prototype Neptune-Noire relationship of lonely and teasing.
Although Blanc is more of an aggressive tsundere, if you could even classify her as one. And only on a very loose term.
Yeah, but that's not Sega, that's Segamin. One lives and dies on the products it sells, the other lives and dies on how she presents herself to the reader. Sega's company face is irrelevant to the quality of said products, while Segamin's very much is.
That's the point. She is abrasive, is intended to be abrasive, and none of the characters make any pretenses about her not being abrasive.
She really isn't a likable character at the start, a view which is mirrored by IF, but the good thing about the game is that they make an effort to not only show her developing as a character, but also develop the relationship between IF and Segami. Like I said, she grows on you.
1. In HDN1 Histoire accuses her of being tsundere towards Neptune.
2. In the Megami Tsuushin they're often paired as a comedic duo and Neptune interacts with her more than the other goddesses
3. In mk2 Blanc grudgingly acknowledges that she's not without positive qualities, particularly her friendliness, but she's still glad Nepgear didn't end up like her because she doesn't think she could handle two Neptunes
I'm sorry, but I don't think "She's shit at the start, but she gets better later!" is a good selling point.
She could be likable and still have great character development; they're not mutually exclusive concepts.
>In HDN1 Histoire accuses her of being tsundere towards Neptune.
Why were all the good parts removed from Rebirth?
>no "Arfoire is your mother"
You'd think for all this crap they could add cute candidates being cutes, but noooooo.
Post-anime reception, where she doesn't screw around with her friends out of incredibly selfish desires.
It's probably just hearsay, but I think Plutia had a better reception in the West than in Japan post-Victory. Hence why she never appeared in anything until her anime appearance.
She was crying hard about Sega Saturn, shiro.
She's way more dominant of a protagonist than Neptune, Uzume, Nepgear or Plutia in their respective games. Didn't spend seven years to pretend that she's retarded. She's more about BUSINESS than Noire ever had been.
If she's not crying from a spanking, that doesn't count.
But they removed a lot of nice stuff, and from what I heard, even the characters act differently between HDN and RB.
>It's probably just hearsay, but I think Plutia had a better reception in the West than in Japan post-Victory. Hence why she never appeared in anything until her anime appearance.
She got tons of fanart after Victory so no.
Well, without spoiling too much, her sadistic tendencies are much more tolerable in Seha, because A) they don't run it into the ground B) it actually has consequence this time, and C) major spoilers.
Look, she's like Haruhi, alright?
