This is really for Danganronpa 3 as they have a "Future Arc" and a "Despair Arc". The Future Arc is *the* story of DR3. The Despair arc is more like a prequel (set before the events of DR1). If you watched Future all the way through, I think you'd get the story, but I doubt you'd care much about the characters. The show was originally released as alternating episodes and the stories do lead into each other. Since all the episodes are readily available now, I'd suggest watching them in air (alternating) order.


I was just wondering this myself because I just played through 1,2 , and UDG, so now I want to start the anime, thanks!

I want to do injection to Mikan.

That makes me think of this ("Injection Fellas!")

 

I go back an forth on Mikan. She's sweet, sexy as hell, but they almost play her too comically with her "fan service" clumsiness. That scene with her 'in despair' though *phew*. I needed a moment.

So will watching the anime spoil the Danganronpa 3 game? I'm currently playing through 2...and pre-ordering 3. Forgot how fun these games are.

The anime "Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy" is a wholly different story than the game "Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony". Naming convention aside, the two share almost nothing, different time-period, different cast. So no, the anime wont spoil the game.

Note I only made it to 3 of the original.

Very poorly. They improved the graphics, gameplay, and level design significantly, but the story went from sort of philosophical and genuinely interesting to bargain bin generic animu fluff. Every other character is mysterious for no other reason than to be mysterious, all the rest of the characters are severely mentally deficient, none of the character motivations make any sense and they usually conflict with themselves, the writers had even less idea what an MMORPG is than the first generation of .hack writers, and instead of genuine character motivations driving the plot, the plot just sort of meanders randomly along until it gets to the next place it wanted to be without any particular rhyme or reason. It was kind of painful just getting through the first game.

Oh, and in spite of the improved gameplay and graphics, the environments somehow manage to be even more samey than in the first four games.

With all this talk of Danganronpa, reminds me I still need to play the first one before the third one comes out. Already played the second one and loved it.  Hopefully I can find it cheap somewhere, it always seems to hover $25 to $30 mark.

Just a heads up since I don't think Supplice posted a news link about it (Search sucks), but the demo for Monster Hunter Stories on the 3DS is out. Progress carries over into the game as well should you actually like it enough to buy it.

SakuraGame released another poorly translated hentai rpgmaker game on steam.

The Heiress - $2.39 during the first week

Also if you buy it during the first week, you'll get a code for Dragon Knight for free. See details here.

Keep in mind the translation is barely better than machine translation but it is understandable and playable.

Also you'll have to patch it for the 18+ scenes but shouldn't be too hard.

 

I did pick up Dark Elf from last week. It's alright. The combat is turn based ATB jrpg fare.

It's worth noting the japanese version of these games retail $20 on dmm site but they're $10 now so it's still cheaper to get it on steam.

that's because there are fewer maps and only rain and fog for weather at least in the first 2 g.u. games.  No forest layout, no desert, no ice, no lava ect.  gu only had the 1 field lay out type, chinese dungeon and cave dungeons.

We all have to buy it though or they'll never do an HD remake of the originals.

Note I only made it to 3 of the original. 

combat is slightly different in that now its a bit more real time and combo oriented due to your weapons all having unique abilities to them, magic was completely nerfed to being useless and you don't have access to anywhere near as large the spell size, buffs or debuffs anymore. Nor can you get them through equipment temp as abilities.  They also now lock you barrier field when fighting enemies both in and outside dungeons where as prior you could run and such freely.  Ai orders are now gone along with directly selecting moves to use so you can no longer kite bosses or stand back and let them fight while you heal/attack from afar.   New annoyance is the aida battles.  They were horrible.  And you have to fight dozens of them in  the second game.

Because your mc haseo uses 5 different weapons (2 in the first game and 1 added in each game after. bsword that turns into a sword whip is new) you not only have significantly fewer weapons in each class but there are large level gaps between them and only 4 attacks on each weapon.

It also uses weapons as weaknesses for some types of monsters.  large enemies typically come with an armor you have to break by using your heavy swords and charging them/dealing damage.

 

Heavy blades have so far only normal ones and one with a chainsaw skill. Sadly the latter is only on your default weapon and I have yet to encounter a second between the first and 2nd games.

 

Twin blades have 3 types.  1st is chainsaw like the heavy sword.  second is spinning blades where you launch them at the enemy then quickly press o to rotate them and extend the combo.  3rd which is the rarest is the ghost step from the needle rippers.  You charge your attack and instead of just hitting them and throwing them across the screen or knocking them down you teleport behind an enemy and it deals a bunch of slashes to them.  Works on multiple enemies and is an amazing skill.  Sadly you only get 1 after becoming the palace champion.  Not sure where I got the second one from.  I think it randomly dropped in a chest or something.

 

 

scythe is similar to the first 2 and has a chainsaw effect.  I don't recall if there were any others.

 

I agree that the story was more poorly executed in g.u.  Most of it is in the anime and the last bit of it is in the 3rd game.  2nd game was almost entirely filler

Upgrading your equipment was thankfully improved.  Instead of going to a random map and hoping to come across a pond and hoping you get an upgraded weapon spit out by rng you instead just take 2 of the same weapon to your guilds building and combine them and can do this up to 5 times until the weapon maxes out and can then be fused with equipment that's higher level I think.  Downside is there are very few pieces of equipment let alone duplicates of the same ones outside say lv45 heavy blades laying around.

party members wise unlike the quad you have fewer characters you can use with a large number being temps or having extremely limited availability.  You don't even have 1 character from each class to use let alone being able to use a party consisting of say 3 twin blades.

 

That on top of characters being backloaded for the 3rd game makes things pretty annoying regarding that.

 

And my apologies for the triple post.  Figured I may as well make some use out of it though.

I'm really intrigued. What is a "Hentai rpgmaker?" Is it like an RPG maker but with Hentai elements? Or is it just a normal Hentai RPG? Or is it like The Sims but an RPG and with Hentai in it? I skimmed through the trailer and it just looked like a normal top down RPG to me.

Well, whatever floats your boat, I guess, but I wouldn't want that in my Steam library for everyone to see.

Steam for the most part doesn't allow that kind of imagery on its service/store. So what's on Steam would be the hentai game stripped of all its hentai. Thus you wouldn't see anything in the trailer. Typically if you want to add in the hentai, you'll either need to (A) buy it from another source that has the 18+ version already or (B) patch it in with a supplied (or bought) 18+ patch that gets around Steam's policy.

Sorry I probably said it weird. I mean a game that was made in rpg maker engine but it just so happens to be a hentai game.

I think this one was made in RPG Maker VX Ace

Since there seems to be some curiosity floating around about this Heiress game, I thought I'd at least figure out what the original Japanese title is so you can see for yourselves, if you want to, what you'd be getting.

The game was originally titled Botsuraku Reijou, by ONEONE1, which, as I implied previously, specializes in relatively extreme fetish material. Looking through the tags, it seems like Botsuraku Reijou is probably a bit tame compared to other ONEONE1 titles, but still features stuff like lactation, monster rape, mind break, and rods being fitted into cavities not designed to handle that sort of volume.

It's ultimately just cartoon fantasy and so I'm certainly not going to sit in judgement over anyone; I'm a channer, I've seen much worse. I'd guess that without the 18+ patch, it's also relatively safe.

I just thought people might want to know what sort of stuff is in this. For those curious about art quality or content, the full event CG appears to be hosted at the typical hentai archive sites under its Japanese title.
