    I did notice the similarity between Rance and KOEI games but the problem with KOEI games is that it is very difficult keep track of which of these 100 Chinese guys with beards and gibberish names you're supposed to care about. (I was able to keep track of them in Legend of Cao Cao due to the smaller scale, but it is impossible in the larger scale KOEI games)

    Rance's cast of characters was at least a step up from that, and the plot was more interesting as well.

    I actually would have liked it better without the actual porn as I was reluctant to play it with other people in the room.

    How those fucking japs get away with all that blatant pedophilia in this day and age is beyond me.

    It seems to be ingrained in them. I used to work in a Japanees restaurant years ago, and all the Jap women dressed and talked like little girls. It's expected of them. Not really complaining of course, I'm a bit of a pedo myself, but I tend to keep my fantasies private. Just curious as how they still get away with it without being admonished by the rest of the world.

    Oh god, lolis that Rance doesn't fuck don't have a good track record...

    Its possible he gets whoever she was pregnant in Rance 8 just as he did in Kichikuou. IIRC his daughter ages mega-fast for whatever reason. Have to wonder if the need to pillage and rape will be passed on to his sons/daughters. Could make for a few more interesting spinoffs...

    I still cant get over the goddamn 3D art, especially battle animations. The models are detailed and all but the art direction is just shitty.

    Contrast to the high definition 2D art is supermassive.

    Sosad.

    Even Rance is not immune to mainstream.

    Rance 6 was already 3D so it's not surprising. I'd rather they keep the 1st person perspective though. Isometric 3D looks worse.

    There's something about music in this one... that doesn't bode well. Also, lack of Rance's genuine 'rape' face is very disturbing.

    Character classes introduction video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2sYwEmU6hY

    * You do quests from a quest hub (Rance's castle?)
    - Completed quests increase fame/reputation
    - Recruitable chara have fame requirements

    * Limited number of actions like in Sengoku Rance.

    * Random loot, unidentified items - and identifying is a bitch (identification cost goes up after each identification, you lose items if you don't identify them)

    * Characters have level cap, cap can be raised by fucking them (but then they are reduced back to level 1, yay!)

    * Eight character classes: fighter, guard (footsoldier in Sengoku), gunner (ranged attack), sorcerer, healer, ranger, grappler? (you translate スパルタ...), civilian (can be a mix of several classes, can be totally useless char you need to escort on a quest)

    By the way, have I ever mentioned how much I love the Rance universe lore? Athena makes a return in Rance Quest. She is...

    Yep :D

    Nice to see there are so many classes in there. Item identification could be :incline: as well depending how they pull that off.

    But that goddamn 3D graphics is making me :rage: Do these people even realise how shitty it looks?

    Btw, I know it's not likely but can スパルタ mean "Spartan"? I've seen worse interpretations of Europen history by the Japanese. Depending how the class works another translation could be "berserker".

    Also, WTF with that banal, shit, boring tune? Time for some :incline:

    Finally got a .jp proxy so I could read AliceSoft website again.

    Rance 9 is in the works already :z

    And Rance 10 is to be the final game in the series.

    No idea what is the point of 8 then, if 9 is to be the "Helman chapter". Oh well.

    Well duh, hard-core mondblutian codexers don't need to understand any silly story to play a RPG.

    Some of us do know enough Japanese to play it. I'd much rather report the decline of the east instead of just talking about Skyrim.

    And who knows, I might very well be a plant by Alice Soft, preparing for their international début ;-)
