is there a blander, uglier, less appealing, shit main heroine in all of existence?
I love this fluffy pink loyal qtOP is a fag
id play rance if it weren't for the rape. i have no problem with it morally i just think its a boring sex concept.
>>504499478Nobody plays Sengoku for the porn. Some people might download it for the porn, but the porn quickly becomes secondary to their enjoyment.
>>504498940Sorry OP you must have posted the wrong image, that's a picture of Sill Plain, the only girl Rance truly loves and cares about in the world and also the best girl in the series
>>504498940Sill's fluffy and cute, but the problem is that she's more of a part of Rance's character than she is a standalone character, and she's the worst part of Rance's character. Sill being gone forced them to come up with new jokes and new interactions to base Rance around. Rance grew as a character in Quest and IX. He regressed immediately in X.
>>504499478There actually isn't that much rape in Sengoku Rance, most of it is consensual. Rape is mostly just generic short scenes after winning a territory.
>>504499920i unironically played the funbag fantasy sequels because of it's world building>mfw another paizuri shamshiel scene
>>504498940>is there a blander, uglier, less appealing, shit main heroine in all of existence?
>>504500923Going through sideboob story right now
>>504498940fuck off she's best girl
>>504499478There’s rape in the game? I barely remember the porn but wasn’t it just about the girls pretending not to be interested but eventually giving in and fucking you
>>504501170sideboob 1 is ok, sideboob 2 is where the real shit is and more like a real sequel but there are a ton of references to funbag 2 which is a prequel so you should read sideboob 1>funbag 2>sideboob 2
>>504500664he didn't regress he still loves and cares for his women in X like when he forcibly scoops monster semen out of Crook with his hands and dick
>>504501761>monster semen in Crookabsolutely haram
>>504501915She gets raped and killed on the regular
>>504502162That is a thing which should never be allowed to happen
>>504501465I was gonna play 2 after sideboob 2 cuz it didn't deal with Lute but ok I'll play it after sideboob 1.
>>504499478there's no rape in the gameThere's "consensual sex" and "forced consensual sex"
>>504502223she wins in the end at least
you can stop posting any time Lia
>>504499478The porn in Sengoku Rance is super mediocre, nobody likes the game because of it.
>>504499920>>504506508is there romance in the game? or do you just collect heroines as fuck buddies.
>>504507574Rance is a gentleman and a romantic.
>>504507574There's not really romance that's reciprocal until Quest. Before then it's basically Rance being a 12 year old in an adults' body fucking girls who occasionally become infatuated with him The second Sill became a popsicle off he gets closer and more intimate with the girls he has known for awhile (Along with some new ones he meets) and develops some actual relationships for once
>>504506508I never played them but the CGs are of very high quality
>>504507574There is some with some of the girls.
>>504507574Rance IX has branching routes with endings focused on each heroine kind of like a typical gal game.
for me, it's Alkanese
>>504499478I was like you but it is played for comedy and isn't really morally an issue. If anything modern Rance is more written to have a heart of gold he tries to hide.
>>504507574>romance in the gamea very different kind of romance, but sure there is ~
>>504509757As someone who likes huge breasts, Alkanese has stupid hair, looks like an aye in X, and is a bland character. You really get the feeling that the Rance team doesn't like busty girls. A lot of the "big" girls are actually kinda modestly sized as far as anime girls are concerned, the best characters have small breasts, and the best scenes from a conceptual standpoint go to the flatties. Sen should have been the resident busty girl, but her story arc in IX was basically "I'm blander than you thought, I'll always be bland, and nothing interesting is ever going to be centered around me. Go pay attention to somebody who's more interesting, like every other heroine in the game." There's also that bit with Meg where Rance says that he used to view girls with huge tits the same as fat girls. This is a big part of why Rance always misses the mark on eroticism for me.
>>504498940>he didn't get to the onsen scene
>>504511553her hair is cool and I like her dynamicalso blame TADA
>>504508727Have you not seen the mushroom penis?
>>504498940Sill based as fuck though.
>>504500923I was shocked by how much enjoyed Funbag Fantasy. I genuinely like those games, but I don't even have a preference for big boobs. Good thing that I genuinely like most of the characters, or it'd be difficult to fap to them.
>>504512554I don't know. No? I don't really pay attention to penises only the girls. Who are all extremely well designed.
>>504512635Sill is trash, she does nothing and grows 0 throughout the entire seriesThe best games are the ones where she was gone
>>504513728I absolutely refuse to believe that anyone considers Quest one of the best games in the series.
>>504500923I wish funbag fantasy 2 had scenes with the faceless maids, their design was amazing, however i also played and finished ff2 for the plot, i played the game thinking it was a straigh lined game with short side-stories and i picked the option to stay on boobshire thinking it was going to end on a CG saying "and then he fucked the dark elf for ages and lived comfy ever after the end" but to my surprise the story was going and going and i loved how every major character wanted the MC to be part of the kings heir test but everyone knew that would break the law, then i picked the option to take the test to become a heir and holy shit, fucking amazing plot and character grow, i knew MC had something that made him special but i never expected THAT.
>>504514196In terms of characters and interactions? Magnum is way better than the shit before it
>>504514196Is Quest good? It's my next game, just finished 03
Sill is cute, but man I wish they developed her more as a character rather than just being Rance's pet. Rance Quest's ending got me pretty bad though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-W7IJ3ZHRU
>>504511553BTW, for people who haven't read IX, I'm not exaggerating on Senhime.>I like fights where I almost die because I like fights where I almost die.>Do I have a death wish? No.>Is there a tragic root cause? No.>Do I have some kind of greater drive, like family tradition or aspirations of honor, influence, or wealth? No.>Let's go out of our way to establish that that there is nothing deeper going on here. I'm just that boring.>And now we're going to get rid of that, too, because I'm retiring to become a mother.I can't see any reason for that story arc apart from an attitude of "Do I HAVE to put this character in here? Fine. Fuck you and fuck her fans. Take that." They might as well just leave a note at the end of her route telling you that the correct crazed battle maniac to like is that ugly flatty Teru.
>mfw i brought Kou to Xavier final battle>mfw all the commanders fighting alongside Kou and saying all those final words trying to defeat a demonEvery Rance game starts as a fun adventure then develops into a big war and ends with a huge emotional ending but sengoku main ending is a huge rush of emotions.
>>504515480Don't you get dialogue even if she isn't a playable character? Or are you talking about something else?
>>504516141I brought her to the final fight with xavier wich is a 6vs1 commander battles, she have unique dialogue if you bring her to the final army battle but the lines she say if she fights Xavier in person hit hard, this is unrelated to the regular VN dialogue.
>>504498940Fuck off back to /vg/
>>504515480>>504516795You can't have Kou fight Xavier.
>>504517057You can't?? no way i remember you can or maybe im mixing routes shit i don't remember anymore.
>>504517057Kou can switch in I think.
>>504515402What the fuck were they supposed to do with her? She had nothing going for her from the start and she was still popular for no real reason.
>>504498940anime sill really did her justice
>>504498940I'm about to start my second playthrough of this on 1 star difficulty. Does anyone have any recommendations/tips for playing on higher difficulties? I only have 5 points to spend btw.
>>504514497It's alright. Main problems are with the gameplay since it's pretty grindy and the dungeon crawling isn't as fun since the levels are copy-pasted. I think there's a patch that TADA made recently that gives 2x experience so you might want to look into that.The story and music are pretty good and there's a ton of events of Rance dicking around with all the other characters and a lot of callbacks to the older games, so I enjoyed it overall. Make sure you get it with Magnum
>>504517636I don't mind the afro but why is she dressed like an egyptian dancer on the earlier games?
>>504515402She exist purely to for the impregnate fetish. But now that every girl and their mother have kids she pretty obsolete.
>>504517996Looks like the latest patch has 2x exp, thanks for the recommendation
>>504517992get Elina the diviner, enjoy conquering the starting land with a diviner using mass protection shields on turn one OR have the diviner use her magical skills on enemies you need to hurt bad.
>>504517614Her popularity tanked in IX
>>504518017Maybe because she's a slave, so her outfit is like a slave in a harem or something.
>>504515402>>504517614>>504518571No wonder I got a senhime figure for $70 with shipping included
>X translation never ever
>>504519052If you start learning Japanese now, you'll be able to read it before it's translated.
>>504517614Oftentimes, there's nothing less safe than """playing it safe""". This was the time to flesh out her character into something more interesting. Give her a coherent reason for behaving how she behaves:>have Tillday be right about a past trauma>give her an enemy>give her something that she wants to save, protect, and/or acquire (whether that thing is a physical thing, an intangible thing, or an idea)I'm not going to buy that they didn't understand that her character needed more elements to it. Another point that contributes to my theory that she was half-unwillingly thrown in there as a token is that her sex scenes were centered around a fetish that I don't think that anybody likes: consensual bondage. The whole point behind the S&M fetish is to simulate a lack of consent. In fiction, you don't have to worry about dealing with things like hurting real people. It's exactly the sort of thing that you'd write for a "This is what you like, right? Fine. Here it is. Have you paid me yet? Can I work on something that I actually want to work on now?">>504519029They understand that she's hot. They want to cash in on it. They just wish that it wouldn't be stupid not to.
>>504519052Tried, kanji killed my hopes and dreams.
>>504519552Fuck im retardedmeant to reply to>>504519278
>>504498940You never really know how valuable something is until you lose it, OP.
QuestionNever played any Rance gameAre the Rance games really deserving of goty awards (I heard Rance X received goty from IGN Japan) or is it just a meme?If you think they are please tell me why (need motivation to keep learning jap)
>>504519994X is really good but mostly for story telling reasonsSengoku is really good but mostly for gameplay reasonsAll the other games are just decent/good
>>504520118X's gameplay is pretty good man.
>>504520382It's not very replayable and the card balance is shit
>>504520118Im being redundant but what do you mean by good?Good as in the best to come out japan the year it released?Or is it just IGN beinb IGN
>>504519994X is a solid game, its replayability is a bit flawed though.
>>504520460>Not very replayable Nigga there's like 14 endings. >Card balance is shitJust turn off the extra cards bonus then.Or just don't fucking use Arios or whoever.
>>504520575it's the best VN to come out at least>>504520795>Nigga there's like 14 endings.C and B endings are barely fleshed out, they're literally just glorified bad ends in terms of closure and conclusions. From the Sky is just a gimp version of From the SeaBreakthrough screams cut content and Unification of Humanity is short and boring
>>504520795>Nigga there's like 14 endings.And nothing you do on the way changes in any of themNo matter how well you play you always have to do the same shit, you can never "win harder" and change events Even if you play perfectly and stomp every boss with double suppressions you have to go to Shangri-la to stop red eye from taking you off the A route paths and you always have to waste an operation finding Mikiit's shit and the flags are shit too>Can't ever get both hawzel and silky even if you double suppress Leazas>Hornet faction barely interacts once you reunite them all>Rance still struggles taking down random shit tier dark lords after you've recruited Hornet or Silky
>>504498940SHUT THE FUCK UP
>>504498940She's suppose to be a self-insert for any female that enjoys these kinds of games.
>>504521549>Female>Enjoy these kinds of gameAnon you play as a guy who rapes women
>>504521782Anon.The writer is a woman.
>>504517614>and she was still popular for no real reason.She was popular because she was a relatively strong unit people would get very early in the game.
>>504519994It's high up there in community polls too.
Rance games are fairly good games but not that good eroge. The sex is bland and samey, and most of it ends too soon.
>>504521919Not since Sengoku. Probably the reason 8-10 has Rance raping less if not at all.
>>504521782Rape is the number 1 fetish for women.
>>504514916When does suzume die?
>>504522754 In Rance Quest
>>504519994Rance X is a very good game. It has some flaws as others have mentioned but it still manages to provide a satisfying conclusion to a series with almost 30 years of history.It didn't actually win IGN GOTY though. It was ranked #1 in a freelance writer's 2018 top 10 list that was published by IGN.
>>504522754First 1/4th of Rance Quest, she lingers on for a bit as a ghost but she passes after the epilogue
>>504522924>>504523507I thought quest was a reboot Rance 1. Anybody have the timeline/game chart with translations?
>>5045237246 is the reboot
>>504514916For some reason, I feel like my ass is in danger...
>>504523724Rance Quest is Rance VIII. It comes after Rance VII (Sengoku) and before Rance IX.
>>504523724Rance 01 is the "reboot."It's a remake of Rance I with more content. >>504523969 is retarded
>>504523724Old timeline1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4.Xs -> KRNew timeline01 -> 02 -> 03 -> 4.Xs -> 5D -> VI -> Sengoku -> Quest (Magnum) -> IX -> X>>504524127VI is literally the timeline reboot of the franchise where they totally opted out of the old canon and established a new one
>>504524352I get what you meant now, but it sounded like you were saying that Rance VI was a remake of I
>>504519548Nigger her whole story in SR was that she had no home or family and didn't give a shit about anything, her whole character was just this one thing about wanting to fight battles, and they repeat this point over and over with nothing else to it. You mean to tell me they should've just pulled a rabbit out of her ass and somehow have her have some enemy or greater purpose? The fuck? There wasn't anything to sodding develop man, she was always a one-trick pony right from her inception, they had nothing to build on, no character traits to advance or deconstruct, she was only even remotely relevant because she was a high tier character that helps in doing some broken shit.
Is this ironic like the Cold Steel shit or is Rance actually good?
>>504525368It's actually good (the older games give a lot of interesting background but are kind of shit/mediocre) SR is a must-play and quest (at least with magnum) is solid too. IX is on the weaker side and X is great.Don't listen to people who say VI is good though, they're full of shit and while the gameplay is good the story is rather shite.
>>504510561it is a man's romance
>>504525673>they're full of shit and while the gameplay is good the story is rather shite.it's the opposite though
>>504525673>Doesn't like VIShit nigger taste
>>504525673VI is good fuck you
>>504525896>>504525938What the fuck about it is actually good? The villain has no presence, the *actual* villain is a bad joke with no impact and while the plot of taking over Zeth is good that's the only redeeming quality it has.
I liked 5D
>>504526164Rance's interactions with the party members and the Zeth lore500x better than the dogshit characters from Sengoku
>>504526164There was no one central villain behind the events in the game you idiot that's the point. There were many evil people. You don't need a fucking big bad every game. What a shit take.
>>504526407Nigger the only dogshit character in Sengoku is Senhime
>>504526407I mean Zeth lore is good and all, but Rance's interactions with the party are pretty fucking dogshit my dude, his personality is incredibly inconsistent and mostly just comes down to "u giff fugg?" "gib x" *gets x" "still kinda don't wanna but aight fine" *fuggin* repeat for almost every fucking character.
>>504526732So Rance is acting like Rance.
>>504526470>There was no one central villain behind the events in the gameThere was though, and he was dogshit>Doesn't even remember major details about the game he's praisingSounds like you have an opinion worth sharing anon, really.
>>504526835So what part of that makes you suggest that Rance's interactions with the party where decent, let alone good?I mean people hyped up VI for years and frankly Quest had better writing, what the fuck is wrong with you idiots.
>>504526852Yeah dude cuz Abert and Camilla totally set in motion the entirety of the struggle taking place in Zeth.
>>504524573IX contradicts the arbitrary limits that you've placed on her character, you babbling idiot: she did uphold her family's manners. The scaffolding of her story was built on the fact that we don't know everything that's ever happened to her. It wouldn't be "pulling a rabbit out of her ass" to give something other than the most boring, potential-crushing explanation for her behavior. Here are some ideas:>She realizes that she's wasting her life in a haze on the battlefield as a form of compensating for a lack of family. Being on death's door provides temporary relief from that haze. Tillday was right. She finds direction as a warrior. Fighting for her new family: Rance and Tillday.>She had a similar realization between Sengoku and IX, and now fights to restore her family.>She's not sane. Plain and simple. She's Teru but hot. Cue rivalry in X.There was nothing stopping them from any of these.
>>504527076Albert most certainly did, yes, and he was involved in the background of most major characters as well. His actions greatly affected Supergandhi, the four lords and most if not all influential characters in Zeth either directly or indirectly.Camilla was barely a footnote, and most VIfags also seem to think Camilla was a great character somehow.
>>504526164Personally I like 6 because it's similar to 3 and 9 in that it has a smaller cast of characters so they actually get to interact with each other. The fact that Sengoku is so free form means that all the character events are basically just character+Rance and never involve anybody else. 6 also has an infinitely more interesting story than Sengoku which is just an ancient evil awakens.
>>504527137None of those are any better than what you got>She just randomly decides to be a different character and becomes about martial prowess instead of just being an adrenaline junkie>She randomly decides to care about her family after over a decade of not giving a shit just because she still upholds her upbringing>She's just insane now lmao :^)))
>Rance Quest english still isn't done
>>504527467Abert just wanted to fuck high-end women and nothing else. He barely does anything to make Zeth fall.
>>504527773People get trapped in a bad headspace. Sometimes, they get out. It's not really random. You're basically arguing against character development.>She's just insane now lmao :^)))Why do you even read Rance? Go watch a cop drama or some shit.
>>504527473I mean fair enough, to me it seems like SR gives the characters more depth than VI ever did, and Rance seems like less of a spectator to events (most of VI kind of just happens around him, and is solved by other characters, his involvement feels almost token and is only really due to Chaos) Your choices matter, from whom you attack to what you do with them, entire events can change (keeping Seigan around instead of fully conquering them)Older characters actually relate a lot more to their backstory and prior events, while in VI it glosses over some rather important things (like Sill's history, she's fucking FROM Zeth ffs)
>>504526732He's even more one dimensional in sengoku
>>504528447>A character remains consistent>"BAWWWW WHY DIDN'T THEY CHANGE IT AND CALL IT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT WHAT IS THIS?!"Anon, really now, instead of trying to sperg out at me why don't you come up with a better justification for your bullshit? You're literally asking a character to be something completely unrelated to every pre-existing element of it with some flimsy excuse to make it okay. Senhime was never interesting, she had nothing to make her interesting, her family was completely fucking gone, her homeland was completely gone, she had made it extremely clear that she did not give any fucks about either of those, and all the shit you mentioned had already come up in SR and was rejected.There was nothing their, your wants are asinine, let it go.
>>504528761Nah, SR actively reflects on his background and hints at actual depth to his character, where there is no sign of any of that in VI.In VI he's just a selfish asshole who only cares about himself, in SR he's a selfish asshole who is terrified of caring because of what he lost.
should i play the rance games in order or there one that its better to start off? (untranslated is fine for me)
>>504530247Imo the order doesn't matter too much and the earlier games did not age well at all (probably better off playing 01 and 03 instead of 1 and 3) 4 and 5D are a bit weak but the story picks up in 6 (mostly for the worldbuilding)You can however just start with the later games, they are all connected but they do a decent job of telling you everything you need to know, and you don't lose out on much by playing the older games later and adding nuance afterward.
>>504498940Nigga I will fuck you up!Sill is cute!Also she is not really heroine, considering Rance is not loyal to her at all. She is his slave.
>>504530247Wait til mangagamer releases 01 and 02 then just play in order. Characters from previous games are always showing up so best to know who they are. 3 might be a bit tough to get through but 4s not bad
>>504531478So never? They still haven't even released Quest yet and that's been finished for literally years now.
>>50453195101 is already out of beta. They're going to release it before quest.
>>504499920Same. And I'm glad I'm not alone.Rance is just so cool.....
>>504532107Yea I'm not going to bother giving them the benefit of doubt anymore mate, they seem to be on death's door as a business with new releases being increasingly slow and their latest releases all being shit (broski)
>>504532297way too much forehead, she looks like that guy from scary movie 2.
>>504532107Pretty sure they're bundling 1+2 together so it'll be a while.
>>504532714 Rance has beergoggles in her only scene and she aint bad in it
>>50453235101 is being done by a different translator. And aside from some issues with the translation Sengoku was really well done (nice typesetting, many quality-of-life improvements, bugfixes, etc.). The reason the releases take so long is that their programmer actually does quality work.
Is Rance Quest translated yet?
>>504500871did you forget kouhime?
>>504533197*some* issues? Maybe I'm just not a fan of change but I prefer just playing the original fan translation despite it's flaws, the weird as fuck and random changes in the mangagamer release just ruin it for me, and apparently that translator does this shit with all his work, thinking everything needs to be "localized" instead of translated, and he localizes everything to a fictional ESL locale. I mean who the fuck even says broski? Who the fuck translates onichan as "dude" I'm not even some retarded purist who thinks everything should be literally translated word for word but jesus fuck put even the least bit of effort in maintaining the actual tone of the writing you're translating for fucks sake.
>>504532297>>504532714forehead is cute
>>504519552Kichikuou rance was damn great
>>504498940>TFW all rance translations are stuck in development hell of mangagamer. Rance quest announcement in 2016 and its still not even in beta. It would be easier just to learn Japanese in that time.
>>504528238Fucking mangashitters too busy shitting on rance's fanbase in discord.
>>504534019Based. For a guy who has compulsive rape disorder I love how he draws the line at traps and cunny
>>504534289What happened ? Can you explain the discord shit.
>>504534585Not him but if memory serves it went something like this>Fans; "y u change all the names randomly? Things were fine as they were and most of these changes are completely nonsensical">Translator; "fuck u I do what I want"
>>504533716>I mean who the fuck even says broski?I'm not going to defend broski but its a one off joke and not an easy one to translate.>Who the fuck translates onichan as "dude"When did he do this? If you're referring to Kou she says nii-ue (兄上) and it's translated as "Nobunaga".
>>504535083Laughable. And mangagamer doesn't have any quality control to make scums like these to come in line?
>>504507925I dont think thats how abdominals work. But man is he handsome
>>504534019>>504534437suddenly i love rance even more
>>504535164The second one is from a different game he translated, can't remember the name.
>>504535164What bothers me more than just broski is just the inconsistency of it all, he obsessively localizes the names of everything, but suddenly "diviner" has to be onimakuji or w/e.
>>504534585MG employees in a MG employee only discord server were complaining about misc discord shitposters and annoying fans they had to deal with on their official MG discord channel.
>>504524352>> 4.XsAre you telling me we are never gonna get 04 remake?
>>504535826Maybe, maybe not.
>>504535164its on "If you love me then say so"
>>504534585>>504535083Nah what happened is MG customer support people we're talking shit about some guy in a private discord and then someone leaked screenshots of the conversation. Basically an attempt to manufacture outrage over nothing.Then the guy they were talking shit about embarrassed the entire english alicesoft community by trying to bring TADA into it and summon a twitter mob.
>>504535808Did an MG employee leak the chat? How come did become known to everyone else?
>>504536007>pic related girlIt looks like her twin tails are coming out of her dog ears. What a weird ass design
>>504536970The ribbons that keep her twintails in place just look like dog ears. Not the most sensible design either way.
>>504535746The translator that did "Broski" left MangaGamer so you don't have to worry about that anymore.https://twitter.com/Aru_Naru/status/1187071742830882816
>>504537342>Mangagamer sales are extremely lowMaybe they should figure out most people aren't too keen on giving them their credit card info and they need to offer better payment options, but at least this shitter leaving is going to be one less reason not to buy their shit.
>>504502462Yeah. Her son/daughter is basically God in human form and Rance is no longer a demon king. She won hard
>>504525368Rance is a parody series, Cold Steel is unironic.
>>504538806He's asking if people like Rance the same way people "like" cold steel (aka they don't they just pretend they like that garbage to piss people off)
>Satella never ever used her cool armor again
>>504533332Yes. But needs more programmers
>>504498940>talking shit about pink haired lassesYou uncultured swine!
>>504540902Best Harvest Moon girl
>>504538806What is it parodying?>RPGs.How does it parody them?>It takes place in a videogame-like universe and is a comedy.Then it's an action-comedy. You've got some foils to Rance who are more typical JRPG heroes, and you've got RPG elements as part of their everyday lives, but it doesn't really enter the realm of deconstruction too often. It's not Bikini Warriors.
Rance is the perfect gentleman.
>>504541431The deconstruction comes from how the characters interact with those RPG elements. Sanakia's desire to become a great knight conflicting with her unimpressive statline, being a good example.Anyhow, anyone play Darknesshero Rance?
>>504498940She's pretty bland personality wise, but she's still a great girl. I wanna give her hugs and headpats.
>>504543591Another best thing is that she has some snacks hidden under her floof just in case Rance gets hungry.
>>504543591Imagine the smell
>>504502162Very cute boy!
Do you think that someday we will have more games in the world of Rance?, perhaps one where we play as El (Seeing that apparently Reset and the rest of his sisters fell in love with him), or another game with Rance as the protagonist
>>504532107They're 100% releasing Quest first. They're likely trying to release the games in release order, which is why 01 and 02 are seemingly getting priority over 9 despite 9's translation being finished for years.
>>504547824>They're 100% releasing Quest first. Based on what? 01/02 will be will be finished long before Quest at this rate. Quest isn't even in beta yet, and it's a much bigger game that 01+02 combined.
shit series shit porn
>>504547609I haven't played through Rance X yet, so I don't know the details of how the series ends, but there's still a lot they could do with the setting if they wanted to. They could have a game with any of the other characters as a protagonist, have a game following the Holy Magic Sect or The Legendary Five, do something set in the future, etc.They haven't announced any plans though, so it's hard to say whether TADA retiring made them decide to completely stop making games with Rance/The Continent and just end it with Rance X.
>>504501337That's what ends up being the case with most of Rance's "raping"The rape in these games can almost never be taken seriously
>>504547609Games starring Rance's children can work. Also Rance has 100 children by the end of his life.
WHERE'S THE TL
>>504499478>tfw have a problem with it morally but get turned the fuck on by it
>>504554158So do women. It's honestly shocking how many women have rape fantasies or just generally like being overpowered
>>504554158If you have a moral problem with mindless fun that isn't trying to make any kind of serious philosophical statement, you need to reevaluate your moral system.
>>504498940She's supposed to be stop mechanism for Rance when he tries go full villain mode. In Kichikuou you can become a Demon King if she's not with you, thanks to Satella. In this case he loses all the humanity he had.
>>504554572>murder>funIf you want to have a real philosophical exercise and question the taboos of the modern day, ask yourself about the motivations of rape being a sacred cow compared to other crimes which are arguably even more serious.
>>504554380I'm not gonna go on a crusade over it or anything you sperg I just find it hard to self insert and generally feel like shit when I see the suffering it causes even though arguably that's what turns me on the most about it. Hell I have a rape folder that's 1.5k images large with categorized sub folders based on the number of victims, assailants and the general theme of the rape and that doesn't include images from dedicated rape artists which go into the artist's respective folders, doujins and videos.
>>504551360I don't think this is a good idea. Either come with a new MC who is at least half as charismatic as Rance or don't do it at all. Female MC can be fun when I think about it.
Have no experience with the series?Is it actually amazing or just another /v/ meme?
>>504554715rape is worse than murder idiot
>>504554925This series is probably older than you. There is a reason it's popular despite the fact that this is a very unique adult series.
>>504554925zoomer /v/ meme
>>504555130In this case I'll rape you your sister and your cat anon.
>>504555132>There is a reason it's popularits not tho?
>>504555130>No, you didn't recover from being raped! I can read your mind!>I can also read your mind with microaggressions!>And see your unconscious bias!>That's not what you're thinking? That's exactly what a bigot would say!>GIVE UP YOUR RIGHTS! GIVE ME YOUR MONEY! BASE YOUR LIFE AROUND MY COMFORT!
I dont understand Kichikuou Rance, Ive been repeatedly told that everything before 6 is mediocre and have conflicting info on Kichikuou
WHERE are the translations, WEEBS
>>504520382WTF it's a card game? I thought it was rpg like Quest.
>>504555281It is as much as an adult game with sex and violence (they even kill children that is a taboo in modern games) can be. Also Rance is the only vidya character that has his banner on 4chan.
>>504555505It's amazing. It's not canon but anyway. The story starts after Rance's crusade in Leizas and ends with well the end of the series.
>>504555590It's an RPG with gacha cards. Also, X >>>>> Quest
>>504555661I dont care zoomer never heard of this meme game until coming to this trash heap
>>504498940Sengoku Rance is magical>no reliable guides or expectations for gameplay>play it to coom>mfw I end up losing interest with the porn immediately and enjoy taking over japan
>>504555930>Rance>ZoomerStop being a retard for once anon. You never heard of it because it's a game for adults.
>>504555505It's an older version of sengoku with territory conquest and is a good game despite the age, everything before Kichikuou are ancient games only worth playing for Rance and Rance 5D which came after Kichikuou is literally dice rolls the game.
I finished the true route of sengoku Rance. Should I play the other routes? Did you guys enjoy it?
>>504555930Rance is a 30+ year old series fag
>>504556343How about Rance 4 and 4,2 ?
When the fuck is Rance Quest coming out.
The music and the rearranges are greathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEj1Xz49WsI
>>504556739NEVER EVER. THEIR EXCUSE ARE CORONA-CHAN.
>>504556613Isoroku route plays out mostly the same except Rance manages to bullshit his way into becoming the emperor's dadKenshin route is where things start to play out differently and get wackier. Happiest ending out of all the routesRan is boring but you might as well play her route since you got to this point
>>504556759AI NI KIZUITE KUDASAI BOKU GA DAKISHIMETE AGERU
>>504556343Did the remakes manage to make 1-3 into good games?What about 4? Is it gonna get remade?
>>504556759My favorite is thishttps://youtu.be/UoBFDWNLUNARance's soundtrack is amazing. Also fuck demon lords.
>>50455710601 was good, 03's one of the besthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUCqa4Vh_FU
>>504556701Pretty much same sort of deal.
>>504557445I don't like Satella's redesign. She looks like a loli now.
Quest fucking when?
>>504557627They should have given her giant tits so that she'd be an oppai loli.
>hate almost every Grand Strategy game I've ever played>skeptical about Rance because Kichikuou and Sengoku are described as Turn Based simplistic Grand Strategy games>try out Sengoku Rance>turns out I fucking love the gameplay>planning on playing Kichikuou Rance nextAny games other than Kichikuou that are like this?
>>5045576631-2 more years
>love anime>love grand strategy>the two almost never go together
Fucking Mangagamer>Private dev discord has them shitting on Rance fansFuck those guys.
>>504533209>>504533580level 3 mommy.
>>504558369Any screenshots? I enjoy reading things in my native language and supporting proper translations but if it's that way I'll just read Quest Magnum in japanese.
>>504557986Sengoku was a Dai game disguised as a Rance game so go play Daibanchou because it's the only translated one
>tfw people waiting for more rance have died before quest even got released
>>504558728Japanese it is then.
>>504558728It's just people complaining about some annoying customers, if you've never talked shit to your co-workers before you're either a saint or a liar.>OAGWhy am I not surprised that nigger is trying to farm outrage clicks again.
>>504558728>I don't want to have to give people things of value (as determined by them) in order to eat and have shelter!>Damn those customers for not wanting to give us everything that we ask for!Communists. Every time.
>>504512554It's canon though? Fucking newfag
>>504499478Ah I see, you are of the homosexual persuasion. Fair enough friend.
>>504558728Nothing seems outrageous here. Just a bunck of workers complaining about "karen" tiers customers.
>>504498940I find Sill really endearing, but totally lacking in sex appeal.She didn't need all those HCGs.
>>504556759The final ending medley that plays all those main themes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qu2rCsVzDwo
>>504561892God this ending was awesome
>>504561892Best played with the creditshttps://youtube.com/watch?v=cHxdhNJ17l8
>>504562817I cried when I reached it.
>>504499920I also like the gameplay and the characters
So are Mangagamer ever going to release 8,9 and 10?I even bought Evenicle to help them out.
>>504563112Same. Also there won't be another Rance game again since TADA stepped down unless Alicesoft releases 04 and KR remakes.
>>504563916>So are Mangagamer ever going to release 8,9 and 10?In 3-5 years
>>504543591Is Sil a rape enabler?
>>504564679She hates it when Rance rapes other girls but is helpless to stop him.
>>504562817>For the last time, Sill say rance name >Good night, Rance
>>504564916I wish Lia was main girl, she is much better than sill
>>504565327DON'T SPOIL THINGS YOU KEKS
>>504565516everyone dies eventually bro.
Is Rance Quest translated? The link i found apparently only the first quest is translated.
>>504565327Atleast he had 100 children by the end.
EOP Power rankings>BESTSengokuKichikouVI>POWER GAPIIIIV5D>PURE SHIT POWER GAP024.1/4.2I>WORST
>>504565453I recall TADA fantasizing about a game like Kichikuou that'd follow Rance from birth to death, letting you influence his story. Things like which country he grew up in or who became his main slave. It was obviously too ambitious to even attempt and he took that dream with him when he retired.
Reminder that the main translator for Rance dropped a shoot promo on MG and get his ass canned from the whole scene. KWAB.
>>504565832>he took that dream with him when he retiredNot if Orion does something about it
/haniho/ here. Fuck off back to your smash bros circle jerk thread cunts :).
>>504565875>a shoot promo on MGWhat's that?
>>504565978ding dong diddily look at this mark lmao.
>>504565725These lists are normally garbage, but you're correct on every point. I'd place 5D higher since I love its gameplay, but III and IV shit all over it in plot, music and atmosphere.
>>504565832It would have been amazing. Shit bro just the idea makes me wet.
>>504566031I want a Raidy-like game with Ranceko looking for her boyfriend Rick.
>>504499478>Tell myself it's all consensual>10 seconds later Rance says "I'M GOING TO RAPE YOU"Lucky he's so charismatic and the gameplay is always premium goodshit.
>>504566098I hate 5d's random shitfuckbitchnigga gameplay. Never ever do it again alice I dare you.
>>504566196I usually don't care about sex scenes in Rance but Suzume was damn great.
>>504528238>100% translated like a year agoFUCKING JUST FINISH IT YOU FUCKS AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
>>504566424Suzume is wholesome
>>504566587Assassination is easy*Nin-nin*
>>504565978He said some bad stuff about themAnon is using wrestler lingo
When people talk about how Rance games have good stories do they mean "good for porn", are they just talking about how expansive the "lore" is since like a dozen games in the same continuity have come out over the course of several decades, or do people actually think that this shit is well written? I've only played 6 and 7 since I'm an EOP but while both had great gameplay the story was never good.
>>504566842You may have shit taste
>>504566765Oh, thanks Anon.
>>504567164My cute daughter...
>>504566948If it wasn't porn and a /v/ meme no one would consider the story in Sengoku Rance good. A couple of good scenes with Kou don't make up for the rest of the game.
>>504567330Sengoku is driven by the gameplay, not the story. But no one claim Sengoku alone is a great story.
>>504566842I wouldn't say the story is terribly well written or interesting but I do actually pay attention during most scenes because its interesting getting to know the characters and because Rance rape high jinks are kino
>>504567559Yea, it's not like it's bad enough to skip or anything (although I did start speeding through most of the random Hanny turn end/start events in 7), it's just that I keep hearing praise the series for the story but I didn't think it was very good at all in the two games I played. Still really fun games, eapecially 7.
>>504567962Kichikuou has kino story.
>>504567962>it's just that I keep hearing praise the series for the storyBecause the story is really good when you consider it's a saga which build up every game and has its climax in X.The story of the serie is great. Not necessarely each game on its own.
>>504566842It has a very rich setting and some other games go into it further, the actual story of 7 is one of the weakest of the series but it's driven a lot by gameplay and in general the series main draw is it's characters mainly Rance.
>>504566842Rance has the deepest lore.
>>504559624thischill the fuck out
>>504564543how many games have they done?
>>5045689275d, VI, and Sengoku. "soon" 01, 02, and Quest will be done..
>>504569074neat i'll try them out when the first game is done
Sengoku Rance on steam when?
>>504565875I mean it's not like it's a huge scene anyway. Doesn't he do some junk ass gacha game translations now or something
>>504569351Never. They tried to launch it on steam but it didn't end well. Only Evenicle was able to come.
How should I get into Rance? I've always been interested but never got the time but now I do.What should I start with?
>>504569886Everyone starts with Sengoku.
>>5045698862 ways imo :-start by the best : Sengoku, then try them in order, or try VI to see if you like the serie-start from the firsts even though they are quite old now (though remake exists but aren't translated yet)
>>504569705Still can't fathom why this isEvenicle has more loli and fucked up elements than Rance does
>>504570004Evenicle looks more innocent than Rance
>>504570004Senran is on steam so the confusion may help. And Evenicle looks more tame and you won't see the really fucked up stuff before 10-15 hours. While Rance start with rape really soon.
>>504570001Well i know Japanese so it should be okayThank youIm still a little confused but i bet ill figure it out, thank you >>504569982Thank you too
>>504499478>have no problem with x>but i hate xwhat a flaming flamingo flaggotto
>>504569886I think VI does a good job introducing you to the world of Rance. Either start with that or Sengoku. Sengoku is the seventh game in the series but it's pretty self contained so you don't need much knowledge of the other games to play it. If you want to start from the beginning, either wait for 01 and 02 to get officially released, or read the digest versions of the first 2 games and then play III. The digests basically summarize the plot of the first 2 games and you can get them in the Alicesoft general on /vg/.
>>504570004It really is wild since the loli get's fucked a bunch in that game and the gore is somewhat out there at times.
>>504566472oi goy buy more games if you want Rance.
>>504499478I used to think like you, but I really enjoyed the games and I learned to just ignore it. Rance is just such an over the top manchild that it never truly feels like he's doing it out of malice. He's just a horny asshole. I've played all of the translated Rance games and fapped maybe once or twice to them
>>504575571He should have killed Miki early on
>>504498940you're a faggot nigger if you don't like sill
>>504557445I don't like the redesigns. They made every girl look like they are 15.
>>504576470Most of them are around that age in 03.
>>504576470yeah, they're way too baby-facedKichikuou/Sengoku's probably where the art made the girls look best
>>504554158there's nothing morally wrong about rape
>>504575959Can he even do it?
>>504577635sengoku art sucks ass
>>504554715murder can atleast be justified and can even lead to good in some cases, self defense or killing someone evil for example, rape is just cruelty for crueltys sake
>>504577770Are you black?
>>504577719He has his Apostles. And Miki is very vulnerable in her non Demon King state.
>>504578481If it's justified, then it isn't murder. At any rate, a rational way to rate the severity of the crime is by the amount of damage done, and a good scale for that is the influence and permanence on someone's ability to lead a normal life.Murder is at the top of the list.On the second tier, you have crimes that cause severe long term damage. I'd place rape (because it can create a kid; the mental impact is exaggerated for political reasons, and you can tell because the absolute last thing that the feminists want to hear is that a woman got raped and then went on to lead a happy, functional life), crippling assault, and defamation. The latter belongs here because it can doom you to a life of poverty and ostracism; in a way, it's actually the most severe crime of the three. There's more stuff here, but I don't feel like writing the essay that it'd take to explain why it belongs here.After that, you have normal assault, theft, vandalism, etc.
>>504580505But menacing her risk to wake Little Princess, against who he can't do a thing.
>>504580505She really isn't though Even with Kayblis constantly attacking her while squirting Hirami lemons into her wounds to prevent her from transforming it takes months for her to be killed by him
>>504580883Rance killed her with Chaos. Took a lot of time but hey as long as it works.
>>504580981In KR yes (so old canon), but I remember it tooks him the night to butcher her completely.
>>504570212>You won't see the really fucked up stuff before 10-15 hoursrape cave already has gang rape, torture and drugs.in fact it really feels like there's more rape/torture stuff compared to aster scenes
