Let's have a minutes silence for all the old flavor of the month games that /v/ doesn't remember anymore
>it's so popular, it gained another hentai parody.
>what an Arstotzka was
If the answer is not the country of origin of the protagonist I dont know what it is
I have played this game to death but I have not been in many threads about it
>WOOOOOAAHHHH IT'S THE BEST EARLY ASS GAME EVER MADE
>LOOK AT MY ROBOT
>I MADE A METAL GEAR
>for a week or two we got 10 threads of this every single day
>all interest in this game has completely fucking vanished
>We will never see this glorious bastard again after the next game
If you want a real FoTM H-game look no further than Bunny Black. It was translated, had a week of threads hitting bump limit, then died suddenly and isn't even mentioned in H-game threads
>Everything that could've been said was said
>The high time when everyone tried the game is gone
>This is somehow bad or "flavour of the month"
I don't see Tetris threads but nobody's denying it's a great game.
The only board that could logicly molest the same material over and over is /tg/ because tabletop games, especially RPGs, vary from each session of play to the other.
Oh yeah right, was it good though?
I just beat Sengoku Rance and I really want to play more porn games with actually fun gameplay
The servers were so fucking shit to begin with
Well I pretty much have already went through every single worthwhile action-porngame but I've almost always held off on all the RPG/VN Stuff so there might be something in there I missed out on
It was a resounding meh. It has that dungeon crawler style that was so popular with H-games for a while. Very grindy and the strategy element and the Tank/DPS/Healer with a ton of different units you would never use because they are poorly balanced and you just end out using the objective best ones. And trust me because of the 9 units you can bring you only control 1 and the other 8 are dumb as bricks with your healers attacking instead of healing and your melee attackers pinging away with weakass magic.
You've probably already played this but Kamidori is great for gameplay. So is ROBF/S4U, and MGQ paradox for RPG's. Eroico or Kurovadis is a good platformer. Another Alicesoft game Big Bang Age is a lot like Sengoku Rance but more difficult.
RIP in pieces
STEP ASIDE, PEONS
IT'S TIME FOR GINORMO SWORD
it seems a lot harder to get /v/ to play vidya these days
Also, Candy Box 2. Couldn't avoid this for a while.
Posting best JAPAN
Fated girl and pregnant with Rance's kid. And does anal.
>kichikuou rance was translated
>nobody on /v/ noticed
Please don't start, I never was able to beat the Porcine Pol Pot.
I deploy Rance on his own to defeat Kenshin's army, then take the defending clan's remaining territory with my second fan.
What now, Kenshin?
That was a really fun game, but I wouldn't call it flavor of the month. It never really got that popular.
My right index finger could probably lift a truck after all that clicking
Big bang age is so fucking difficult jesus christ.
At least Rance you can play without a guide.
You can't play BBA without one. You HAVE to get the right characters plus character clears or you're fucked. Good luck keeping your best units loyal while fighting on the battlefront and oh don't forget you have to manage income so spread your units out oh wait what's that oh my that one bullshit faction is launching an ambush in this one territory you've placed your weakest units in for income gathering welp guess they're all permanently dead now unless you feel like giving up that territory, conquering it back, and yoyo-ing back and forth like that because the ambush thingy keeps fucking happening and the battles at the frontline are really fucking hard jesus christ i hate those vampire bastards
> It never really got that popular.
There was a time when it was. Shit was fucking eons ago though, and it was glorious.
Beat the game once, never doing that shit again. So much fucking grinding.
I was doing pretty well until it turned out that I'd forgotten about the student council type faction that I was supposed to talk to and my last chance to talk to them ended up being on the same day as some kind of hanny feast. Missing either was instant death and I didn't have multiple saves.
It's obviously my own fault but still pretty fucking harsh, goddamn.
The game is well alive on /vg/. If people kept making threads on /v/ they would just end up worse and worse because of >>>/vg/ shitposting.
Also played the game for over 40 hours in those 2 weeks. Well worth the $5 I paid. More than most games nowadays.
>You can play Rance without a guide
>Xavier, one of the worst designed final bosses in the series is much harder than necessary unless you do things you wouldn't think of doing 90% of the time, like dungeons. And heaven forbid you don't get any good diviners, then good fucking luck.
There are some other smaller "How do you do these things without a guide" moments too, like preventing the Demon King, but shit Xavier was a nasty thing to end an otherwise fantastic game on.
I want to like BBA but I just can't. It's fucking radical until you get to the third stage where you're fighting world-forces like the tank dudes and vampire bastards and all that.
How's Daiteikoku? I know it's disliked in Japan because it didn't stand up to any of the other games or whatever, but I just remembered someone did a playthrough of it on /v/ years ago and called it RANCE IN SPACE.
It's untranslated, never will be, and is even more unfair and guide reliant than BBA. I suppose playing Loli Hitler and other genderbent Nazi's could carry the game for a playthrough for some but overall it's just not a good game.
>Sometimes you have to fight enemy commanders in a Rance vs them battle
>You suddenly get events wich are only used to level kentarou, a guy with a demon killing sword
>Demon army comander is a demon and someone who Rance knew, perfect setup for a climatic final boss battle
I figured out that I had to level Rance up and get some Diviners on my own
Wasn't it partially translated with the interface being fully done? I know it's a dead translation project though.
But more guide reliant than BBA even? Christ.
I just need my Alicesoft fix, but everything that's translated I've already played. Guess I've got nothing left to do but save up cash and buy Haruka a dozen times.
>10 years later and it's still compared to Princess Maker
Every enemy commander battle except Xavier can be beaten easily without any grinding whatsoever. Even first Xavier is fairly simple to do without much effort.
Second Xavier is an absurd difficulty spike, and the pair of Kentarou and Rance being fairly fragile doesn't help. Not only that, but only one nation has Diviners, and they get absorbed by another nation if you don't get them fast enough.
How good is it anyways?
It looks pretty dated but I'm willing to put up with it if its fun and
has a soundtrack as good as sengoku
But a harem end for the series is as good as confirmed. Given Rance has at least 7 confirmed fated loves
It's fun and has a
bettersoundtrack and setting
>Second Xavier is an absurd difficulty spike
That's why you get to weaken him (at the cost of post-game points) numerous times to the point that he's so weak you can easily beat him without going into a dungeon once in the whole game.
I was talking about the english community. Only 139 people have rated KR in VNDB in comparison to the 2700+ who have done so far SR, so is fair to assume that barely anyone gave a fuck about it. Even Quest has been rated more times than KR.
KR was good for it's time, but Sengoku improved so much that going back to the former is a pain.
They're there to give a handicap to someone who didn't prepare properly. You're not intended to get above zero points on your first playthrough anyway, just the five bonus points for clearing the route.
>yfw when Suzume
dies in Rance Quest Kanami is a better ninja anyway
No way Kanami is hella cute and she doesn't need disgusting cow tits stapled to her chest either she's perfect!!!
Kanami's relationship development with Rance was actually fairly well done.
Of all the characters in the series that could be described as existing just to suck Rance's dick, she wouldn't be the first I'd think fo
like tears in rain
>fairly well done.
Every game after IV its been the same old
>Rance does something bad
>Kanami hates him
>Suck his dick
>"Its not like I enjoy this!"
Until in IX where she just said fuck it
She herself hasn't even grown as a character still being useless losing to even the most basic enemies.
Suzume was better than Kanami in every single way, I'm willing to bet they killed the former because Japs have utterly garbage shit taste and Kanami is simply more popular over there.
Just put rance in the backline with natori healing and urza for damage and put your strongest dps in the front (kenshin, masamune, leila) don't need any diviners (using orochi can be good though)
>Didn't conquer youkai house
>Only played Sengoku Rance
>Didn't know shit about the "lore"
>Fuck this Xavier dude is insane
>Eventually beat him
>Find out later he is the weakest bitch
>Made fun out of by all the other demons
That was quite an entertaining thing, considering his very existence in the game pissed me off.. I hate "evil cos I'm evil" demon shit in games.
I was so happy when I could do game modes that eliminated Xavier ever appearing so I did not have to deal with that "kukukukuku" bullshit every 5 minutes.
I fucking -hate- kukukukuku..
>Became demon because shit that happened to you made you hate humans
>Direct subordinate of the most human-hating demon lord ever
>Humans banish you
>Split you into pieces and lock you in gourds for hundreds of years
I dunno man I could understand why he'd be as pissed as he was, he wasn't evil for evil's sake he was a pissed off asshole with a hunger for vengeance, with a clear goal and motivation.
Nobody remembers stalker in space.
It was actually pretty good, and the devs released a (really, really shit) english localization because it was popular here.
He isn't the weakest, he's actually rather strong in the overall ranks. It's just that he's a absolute bitch to the stronger ones and he's scared of Kay-chan. Nobody likes him either.
You should also note that being in Nobunaga's body did weaken Xavier due the Nobunaga's health issues.
>I hate "evil cos I'm evil" demon shit in games.
He has a rather justifiable reason for wanting to wipe out Japan not only was it the order of Nighcisa, he was put in his place by the Japanese and he doesn't like that.
>most human-hating demon lord ever
That's Gele, Nighcisa was just doing his job as a demon king.
Yeah I guess I can understand it, but it was more of a, game was going a certain sort of way, then went into wtf demon territory and all the "THIS IS EVIL SHIT BUCKLE UP" stuff. Prior to it, I was really loving the game, but from the mid/end point it just felt like a slog, thus on NG+ with the option to remove demon stuff, I was really happy and played for months and had a lot of genuine fun.
Like i say tho, that was without any prior knowledge of Rance games. so didn't even know demons "were a thing".
He used to be top 4. Now he's bottom half. Between his crippling wounds, Nobunaga's poor health, and being out of practice after being sealed for centuries he was at about 10% of his prime.
Which girl would you
Every time I see a thread like this I think "oh yeah I really should get around to playing sengoku rance" and then I remember that it never fucking works.
If anyone can guarantee a working win 10 link I will give you an e-hand job
That's because no one can remember what those games were
Any other people who've been here far too long remember this shit? It was FOTM for about 6 months, I'm not even exaggerating.
still waiting for bunny black 2 and 3 translations
i just want to play it for the story though.
story is pretty much all bunny black has going for it but its actually good.
Holy shit, this game. I originally found /v/ through extensive googling of this game. When the fuck was this?
I guess I finally know what to blame for ruining my life. Thanks Armadillo Run.
It was going on at the same time Hal Turner was so, late 06?
>mfw Hal Turner is out of prison and back on the airwaves
>tfw future Rance games will never be translated
It's nothing to do with whether or not I can "handle" it, it was just tonally jarring to go from almost every H-scene before it being played to comedic effect to one that was serious and tragic.
He was always a white supremacist dipshit, he just did a deal and snitched on others, when his usefulness was outlived they threw his ass in jail.
>mfw he makes out he was some undercover James Bond going on secret missions in conflict zones for the FBI in his recent shows
Doesn't suprise me that there isn't actually a program literally called "mount"
As far as I know Windows 7 doesn't have a mounting service so I still have to look for something
>Mfw Takeda Blitz
I still can't fucking believe I fought that off on my first try, christ
Not every long, in 15 minutes I figured out a cheesy move where I jumped into the air, grabbed a guy's arms/shoulders, then kicked their torso clean out of their body
It worked a lot of the time against other /v/ players
There's one missed ending for Rance Quest Magnum where if you defeat the games final superboss
Ludo decides to cut his losses and initiate Ragnarok, exterminating humanity..
It's not really a real ending but no reason for Ranceko to be included and not this
In honor of the fallen, why not show some love for an up and comer? Barotrauma has some very fun and interesting gameplay, the closest thing to 'Pressure' we have. And it has mutliplayer.
>/rfg/ still exists.
It's mostly just people dumping a picture every couple of hours to keep the thread on life support and every once in awhile they argue about which girl is best girl.
Exists is one way to put it, even if it's in a coma at best.
the best one, what a stupid question
I hope they eventually make RF5
Me too, I crave to plow new fertile fields.
You're right, who would choose anyone but kenshin?
I wanna say it was maybe back in 2013 we had thread on space station 13 all day every day. I fucking loved those green text stories. Tried a number of times to get into the game itself but fuck it was a pain in the ass
>big eater trope
its such a non characteristic at this point
then again I know people who are actually like that
I used to have a bunch but my hard drive failed.
Finding translated versions of these are almost impossible and at best they just have on-site translation of the original jap ones.
Everyone can have their own opinion. Even one as wrong as yours.
She was cute as fuck but got bland really quick
She has some kind of special route or something right? Is she more well characterized in there or just more of the same?
I've only beaten the base game
Hey /v/, can we make this a flavor of the month please. Nobody talks about it.
The ladies love those shark teeth.
Is that Yumina?
Does it get any better? I played for a couple hours and so far it seems like a generic high school thing and the fights I got into were mostly done blind because the game doesn't really explain the system well.
The plot gets insane later and after a while the fights require a higher focus on counters, debuffs, and taking control of the AP system.
>Get gameplay and a lighthearted story that is pretty out there
>An actual issue
No because Eien no Aselia was better than it in every goddamn way.
Everyone forgets the time Rance made babies with the cat-girl Tama. I know there's nothing confirmed but that sex scene was awefully suggestive, considering she was at the high of her heat and begging to be impregnated. And finished the scene with a bubbly little sing song with Rance remarking
>I've got a bad feeling about this...
Its SRPG Yumina but not so watered down and the characters aren't all complete ass with a serious tone.
Making a Sengoku Rance clone and want to increase the scope of battles a bit.
>8 units, four in front, four in back
>9 units, 3 each in front row, middle row, back row
>just stick with 6 units
If I change the number of battlers then I'm gonna change the other shit to accomodate it, yeah.
Although 'change' is the operative word, I like the mechanics too much to ditch anything outright.
The battle rating system needs some wor, because using Natori almost grants you a victory using no strategy whatsoever.
Also using units that just spam "shorten time limit" spell is a really boring strategy but one that works
This post made me laugh.
>so far it seems like a generic high school thing
If only she wasn't such a massive bitch for the first 4 chapters, and when you finally get on her route.
I genuinely preferred Ai, even though Kirara had a literally perfect body and sense of style.
I would have liked to have seen a scene where the Mouri family (Teru, Kiku and dad) go and fully kill the demon who made Chinu explode.
I felt so sad. Chinu had a few scenes and a line where she hints she knows what will happen to her. And yet her clan are oblivious to it.
When the Demon army gets scenes and they show that motherfucker demon apostle that made her explode and the evil soundtrack is playing, I just felt appalled and so full of rage.
Its nice when in other routes you can keep her alive.
artificial academy 2
i miss the professor lewd threads
You've all truly forgotten this wacky adventure.
If you turn him/her into a boy he starts to date the one armed prostitute. If you turn him/her into a girl Rance get's to take her virginity, she then gets together with her best friend, the dude with only one eye. There's a short scene of them fucking in a bath or something.
>Artist of these great pictures deleted his account
Also never knew the original creator of Elona was going to make a sequel before a designer died or something recently. He also apparently wrote tons of lore on an untranslated site.
>It's untranslated, never will be, and is even more unfair and guide reliant than BBA. I suppose playing Loli Hitler and other genderbent Nazi's could carry the game for a playthrough for some but overall it's just not a good game.
Not really, you can very easily sit around on only Japan+China territory and gather resources or blitz everything. The only problem is getting certain characters and their clears. Game is easier than Rance 7.
Now for a harder game: try Daiakuji. Now that it a game filled with guide-required bullshit and more upkeep than BBA.
