I know a lot of companies have been cutting ties with him, it's a big mess for sure. I want to believe the allegations are false, but I feel like there's probably at least some truth to them. Either way, I can't deny the fact that I like his past voice work.

I liked his voice, but eh....I'm with the girls on this one. They're getting way too much hate and crap, people need to move on. -.-

Anyways yeah...I went with Lest...I need my girl Xiao. >.<
Maybe I'll start a new game at some point and do Frey, lol

On a whim I picked up Rune Factory 4 because so many people were saying it was so fun and comparing it to Stardew Valley, a game I've dumped hundreds of hours into.

And first impression: You guys were right! I'm hooked almost immediately. There's no hiding that it's just an upscaled port of a 3DS title, but the writing is funny and the gameplay seems addictive right out of the gate.

Though I admit to having been spoiled by Stardew Valley's handling of romance where anyone who is single is able to marry anyone else who is single, regardless of the chosen gender of the player or romantic interest. xD

Rune Factory 5 preorders went live in Japan. Looks like the various AmazonJP-exclusive bundles are dominating the Switch best seller list, the hype is real. The special edition looks similar to the one Rune Factory 4 received.

Still set for a May release in the west, I'm looking forward to preorders for the CE going live over here sometime soon.

I finally fired up my copy of RF4S this past weekend.

I'd like to roll the credits before RF5 arrives presumably later this year, but we'll see.

This opening is smooth. Love it.

I've really been enjoying my time with RF4. A little heavier on combat rather than the sim-life and sim-farming side of things. The polar opposite to games like Harvest Moon or Story of Seasons. I'm really looking forward to RF5 and what a slightly higher presentation budget will bring to the series.

There's real potential for it to land on a best-of-2021 list.

Not that I know much about Rune Factory, but this was such not the style I'd expect from this that I actually looked into the comments to see if someone would give away that this was a parody intro of some other thing. Nope, real thing, as far as I can tell anyway.

I wonder when we'll start hearing more about the localized version.

@kkslider5552000 Yeah, I was surprised too. The alternate opening is a bit more in line with what I'd expect stylistically, at least.

It's amazing that a Farming RPG has such a stylish intro.

Finally saw gameplay footage of Rune Factory 5 on Switch. Talk about rough, yikes. Very disheartening. Completely torpedoed my interest in the game.

It seems like they sort of wanted a "No loading screens" situation, so they sacrificed frame rate for it.

Cynas

I've heard the same from the impressions I've read online, that the game is pretty fun but it has some major frame rate issues. Hopefully it gets patched a bit before the English release. Although for me I think I'd still be able to enjoy the game.

@Slowdive That gives me flashbacks to Bravely Second, where Japan got stuck with the inferior game as a result.

New E3 trailer, now has an early 2022 release window.

Boom! Same sex marriage is in for the West for RF5! Day one buy for me. I guess I should actually look at marriage candidates now. (This was not in the original release for Japan so there was some concern.)

Preorders opened up for the SE on AmazonNA, but considering how rough the game still looks after June's 1.0.4 patch I think I'll save my $80 for something else.

@Magician The game is on version 1.0.11 now, yeah? Have things gotten any better since June's patch? We still have a few months before it releases in the west so there's time for a couple more performance updates, but I'm not exactly putting all my hopes on it.

I'll still buy the game regardless. I was able to get enjoyment out of RiME on Switch before any of the performance patches, and I doubt this game will be nearly that bad.
