I started playing it today. I will make a thread in 2 years when i have 100% it to let you know.
>I will make a thread in 2 years when i have
Step it up, senpai.
Because TM knew you'd want your harem end and made you work for it.
>Literally an ending where Rin lets you keep Seibah so long as you fuck them both.
They knew what they were doing.
The only translated version is the one with the H-scenes. The Realta Nua patch adds the extra content but doesn't remove the scenes. The scenes have no audio though because that's how they were originally done.

Install AppLocale or change your system locale to Japanese.
You need some codecs too. https://github.com/Nevcairiel/LAVFilters/releases/download/0.62/LAVFilters-0.62-Installer.exe
Make sure to play "-FATE-" first, "UBW" second, "HF" must be last.
was originally a ps2 port with the true ending for the saber route, vita port got anime intros by Ufotable, the studio currently doing the current Fate anime
god i hope they remake the other two routes like their doing with UBW
>try adding the Vita soundtrack
>tracks are hit or miss
the trick is to not fap at all until you get to an h-scene in whatever VN you're reading. After a week or so it doesn't matter how bad the art/writing is. And for some reason the slow buildup and relation to the character just makes it all the better.
there's a 100% patch out but the quality is still all over the place. For the most part it's fine but once in a while you're run into landmines like a google translated scene with 'translator notes'. And by notes I mean the 'translator' putting shit like "wtf are these people eating XD" at the bottom of the page. I'm not even making that up
ARCHER IS SHIROU FROM THE FUTURE
SAKURA IS RIDER'S MASTER
I'm glad this existed because it got my slightly normalfag friend to finally read the VN. He stopped after Fate though, since he's just gonna watch the UBW adaptation and finish the VN later. Probably the smart thing to do honestly.
As far as classes go.
Sabers a shit, a big boring shit.
I ripped all the image assets out of the VN, you can DL them here:
>Tfw the Crunchyroll subtitles have Ilya saying "Master" when she clearly says "Onee-chan"
I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a magic subtitle or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.
It's only the F/Z and F/SN Lancers that have bad luck, the class is great for the most part.
All F/SN girls are pretty boring shit. Maybe the teacher or the loli are passable, Rider is actually pretty good.
The game as a whole would be better if there were no romance shit.
>tfw the original anime is shit but this made you hype as fuck when you first watched it.
It scares me to think there are people who wouldn't.
The original anime is what drew interest into this series for me. It was the idea of Shirou starting off as the bottom bitch, then rising to the top with his main man Saber, and eventually overcoming himself.
What the fuck was Heaven's Feel, right?
>starting off as the bottom bitch, then rising to the top
Nigga that's 90% of all stories in everything ever. It's called an "underdog" protagonist.
Like what? The PSP game? Apocalyptica?
Dude just read wikipedia and fap to fan art. The writing is mostly just talking about food or autistic infodumps about power levels and the sex scenes are bad. Regret wasting my time with it
Tsukihime was ok though
This time around, fans are taking time and interest in Fate/Apocrypha.
Fourteen servants split into two teams, red and black. All fighting for the Holy Grail.
>talking about food
Fucking this. Why? Why all the food porn? Did they make the game on an empty stomach or some shit?
I swear to god if I hear her say
one more fucking time.
I think mister is fine because little girls call older boys onii-san, even though it can be translated to brother too. Given the plot relevance there's no reason to want to spoil.
>tfw no pale as snow loli to call you
BROTHEEEERRRand get double teamed by you and a roided 3 meter tall demi-god.
Yeah, it's 100%. In November, people will be adding the new openings/music from the recent release.
Fate/Extra CCC Translation is in progress: tsukinoura.wordpress.com - http://xenotranslations.com/boards/fate-extra-ccc/
So Fate/Prototype and Fate/Strange Fake became actual projects right?
i wonder if Fate/Strange Fake will have the MC keeping the ability to summon different servants.
Well, i just hope Fate/Koha-Ace also becomes an actual thing because i love my Yamato Damashii Historical Figures
>tfw outlived sakurafish
>There are people who like Rin the Rhino my anus is itching for some twitching Tosucka
>There are people who like Sakura my body is made of worms with over 10 years experience of being an educated prostitute
We all know that Saber is best girl.
Just as boring as the other 2 bitches, who got torn a new asshole by Alexander the Bro in F/Z.
If she is a boring character who cares how kawai she is? Shit man, this is 2d everyone is cute even the fat bald old guys in rape doujins are cute compared to their irl counterparts. Cuteness isn't gonna cut it in this doggy dog world.
>You mean as a total fuckup?
Nah, they wont fuck up. There is no Mitsuru-look-a-like to get in the way this time. Also, they didn't land a Lancer, didn't use a dual master system, and didn't end up with a slut familiar.
>Chief of police, a cop
Oh boy, here we go.
Yes but none of them are with the only attractive non-slut so they're all shit.
Kayneth is just a poor dumb fuck
I wouldn't suggest watching the old Fate by DEEN. It has a lovable soundtrack, but the material itself doesn't hold up well. Watch the new production by ufotable
www.utw.me. It's very good. You can watch the prequel too, Zero.
I actually really liked it too.
Give the VNs a try.
Fate/Extra is great fun. What were your favorite scenes?
I suggest reading Fox Tail -
It's great fun.
Honestly, Fate doesn't have much that is worth animating. Of course, having a proper Fate adaptation would be nice for all the people who haven't read the VN, but I'm glad we get the more exciting routes animated instead.
They will merge what's good about the Fate route into the new anime, stuff like Continuation of a Dream and new, original scenes.
I can see why Caster was so obsessed over her, Jeanne is cutest servant.
You have the option to leave it censored or uncensored. You can select to use the replacement scenes or the original porn scenes. You also have a new soundtrack, some kick-ass new graphical features and opening clips. Some of the translation is updated, too.
Read this, it's better written too.
Taiga is the best Fate girl.
The rest don't even come close.
>no Taiga route
I bet that fucker has it and is hoarding it along with the Ilya route just for himself.
I doubt Nasu cares about Taiga. He didn't even give her a birthday.
It's not even a choice.
But I wouldn't force her to be with me.
I just want her to be with the man she actually loves, even if it means throwing all those bimbos back to the Origin.
Don't bully my waifu.
Anyone here played Extra CCC? How is it compared to Extra?
Considering playing it since I'm able to understand it now, but been a while since I've read anything fate related.
Also considering F/HA when the vita vers comes out and has voice acting.
Fate Extra is like Sonic 2, and CCC is like Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
It's Nasu's far and away best work since the original.
*Even I know
There is a big difference and it could save you life, lad.
You know what, Deen's Saber and other characters' art looks a bit less kiddy than the ongoing UTW's art. That shot of Saber looks better in my opinion. (Probably because it looks like the VN one, and I watched Deen's first)
UTW took Carnival Phantasm's comedy rendition of the characters and put them in a serious situation.
>no game about riding around town on a bicycle and wrecking cars that are in your way and evading police pursuers because that would trouble shirou
>Female MC of course
Fuck, he really hasn't been spoiled at all.
Yep. Her "shy underclassman girl that likes upperclassman boy but is too shy to admit it!" shtick got old fast. That and the whole "I get raped to sleep every night by the dick worms" thing was too fucking dumb to generate any sympathy.
If Normal HF had the Illya bits and Kotomine fight I'd be 12/5
Alternate universe Kotomine is the red man
I wish the Fate/Extra gameplay wasn't so Rock-Paper-Scissors-like. If your luck shits out and you let you enemy get three in a row, kiss your ass goodbye. At least with bosses you can get some info and find out when they're gonna Noble Phantasm you.
Good writing, at least.
>I get to be with my waifu forever
I mean, HF True is pretty over the top what with getting a new body from the chick from Kara no Kyoukai and having Rider for threesomes, but literally spending forever with your waifu in Avalon is fucking disgusting tier pandering.
HF True is practically a bad end for Shirou. He gives up his dreams, and possibly the ability for him to live a normal life in that ending. I mean that puppet body isn't exactly 100%.
I mean what the fuck is he gonna do with himself? Get a normal job?
>0 results for mollusks
Well that's surprising.
Have sex with Sakura.
Lots and lots of sex.
Probably fight off any Magus who want to mess with Sakura because she's got Grail bits inside her.
I mean : She gets the entire Matou fortune for herself.
Yeah, but what's he gonna do now that he gave up his dream for Sakura? It's clear what Fate and UBW Shirou do, but does he just sit on his ass?
Can HF Shirou even fight? Without his arm he's by far the weakest Shirou, and that puppet body gimps him.
>Can HF Shirou even fight
He'd find a way some how.
I mean his whole reason to live is to protect Sakura after all. With magic, there's a way.
I mean : Shiki's puppet arm let's her force grab people if I remember right.
I'm sure Shirou's can do some nice stuff too.
Plus it's not like he's fighting Servants anymore, so he doesn't need to be insanely powerful.
He also has Medusa for backup, who shits all over everyone.
I assume that when a grail war starts and it forms servants, they are balanced against each other in that one grail war.
However, Gil was spec'd for the previous war, so he beat the Rule Breaker in an unsatisfying manner, even in the VN. I wished that Fate route had more plot on Caster, rather than some certain servant cutting in line.
>He also has Medusa for backup
That would mean Shirou will end up with the most comfy and satisfying retirement plan ever. Who wouldn't a pure Rider?
I can't deal
They're all too wonderful to choose just one
It's the lewdest part of her body, anon.
I hear it's a great nightmare.
I played my first VN today (Naricissu) it was shit, but I'm interested in other VNs. Which ones do you guys recommend?
They were never meant to be balanced in the first place. The whole point is to slaugher servants to fill the cup, with the three knight classes considered the most powerful usually going to the three main families. Of course it all depends on the strategy, but it was built so that they have better chance at killing all the other heroic spirits and filling the cup.
>unlimited bait works
>fucking bait of babylon
you're a goddamn retard
Suit Seiba is objectively the best Seiba.
is it possible to summon video game characters as servants?
having captain king or dante as a servant would be so cash
Goddammit, I thought for a second Dies Irae got a translation.
A bait within a bait within a bait?
fuck you, that image has been wrong since it was made
and fuck you for encouraging shitposting
I love them all equally.
I want to playfully run my fingers through her ponytail though.
They were never balanced.
Hercules can allegedly take on the other 6 servants at once as Berserker. He can also be any class except Caster. Saber has retarded good magic resistance.
One of the factors however that alters a servants stats is the skill of their Master and their mana access. Rin Saber has slightly different stats (I think all higher) than Shirou Saber. Saber Alter is much stronger than normal Saber but she consumes a lot of mana and her attacks are different. Though being blackened as well is a huge factor with that.
Fictional characters can be summoned provided that there is a person who can match their talents in real life to be molded to the hero template like Sasaki Kojiro or Robin Hood.
>dante as a servant
>summon him as saber or berseker
he would win the war in less than a day
>We will never get an Archer May Cry game which goes over post-route zero where Ilya is Shirou's lover and we get to see the events that lead to Shirou becoming EMIYA.
Made me laugh harder than it should have.
I'm just saying what they said in the episode that just came out, Is there an actual servant that can match him that was summoned for the 5th war, aside from Saber? I honestly forgot his magic resistance so Caster might be able to do it.
>implying you need style when you can have hax
>Ilya is Shirou's lover
absolutely disgusting indeed.
I wonder how he became EMIYA, shit's all fuzzy except that he got his red coat from Ciel.
And apparently some nuclear shit with his skin color. Archer(s) completely make Fate not garbage.
It'd be pretty average without them.
Can't go wrong with Saber. It's two for the price of one summon.
>Rin Saber has slightly different stats (I think all higher) than Shirou Saber.
Rin's Saber is fucking monstrous compared to the piece of shit Shirou forces her to be. Shirou is such a shitty magus that it renders Excalibur a piece of shit and outright reduces most of her stats. Even Kiritsugu is a more competent summoner and this is the guy that hated using magic.
>And apparently some nuclear shit with his skin color. Archer(s) completely make Fate not garbage.
The nuclear reactor shit was a joke. He becomes brown and loses his hair color over the years through projection.
Well you don't really see him fight one on one with a lot of servants. Considering that it took 12 hours for Gilgamesh to take down Lancer thanks to the battle continuation I think he *might* have been able to wear him down. But it all depends on the situation though, the fights usually don't go "you have worse stats than me I automatically win". Btw, how many lives did Archer take from him in the Fate route when he buying time for the others? I can't remember.
she didn't know about the relationship at that stage
stop trying to point out errors in anime translations if you don't know shit about the original language, you're watching translations which already implies that your knowledge of the original language is low at best
ah, I only played a tiny bit of extra before I got tired of the ridiculous rng
I kinda wanted to play saber and caster but I wanted to learn about archer so much more that I went with him instead
>Kiritsugu's luck is so shitty that even Shirou's dumb ass has a better luck stat
Also I never understood the need for alignments to be mentioned. Gilgamesh is fucking Chaotic Good and that's a joke because he's a huge dickhead.
it's from the part where she's Dark!Sakura I think
something about the black mass, been a long time and that was a really fucking shitty route as far as pacing goes until the last like 3 days where shit actually happens
THEY'RE SUMMONING THE GRAIL WITH A GIANT WORM
He was in prime condition when fighting in Fate, he was fully healed and had full mana from never fighting before.
It's impossible for Archer to kill Berserker in a straight up fight because UBW simply doesn't have enough Broken Phantasms capable of breaking Godhand enough times.
I wonder how those translators got a pr sound from mana, which starts with ma.
Hmmm. Rin is a better magus than Tokiomi apparently. Just held back by not having the entire set of Noble Phantasms for Saber.
Wouldn't that have been a great gameplay feature. Travel around town and find NP that then boosts your servant's stats.
Come to think of it, why don't the servants leave Fuyuki, if just for a day. Would make a nice game. But then perhaps counter guardians would come in and fuck them up. Which is even more incentive to travel around and use the newly found NP.
Ughh sometimes I really hate japanese game developer :/
In their games Women are always objectified as sex objects/sex symbols and always have to be saved by the knight in the shining armour.
Can't there be for once a female bad ass character who doesn't need a man to get shit done?
No wonder these people just banned child pornography
Prana and Mana are different anon
Imagine if Hercules had been summoned as an archer.
It costs shitload of mana but he can resummon already used ones and I don't think he had mana issues with Rin as his master. Plus come on, it's UNLIMITED blade works, how can there not be enough overpowered swords.
No thank you, never seen tumblr and never planning to.
Lol why you mad tho? All I did was state a fact, I guess you are one of those basement dwellers.
Back to your child pornography
He could easily win, but not in a straight up fight like he was forced into in Fate. He'd need time to fall back, lay traps, restock UBW and the like.
First the sword need to be made my a human, divine constructs like Ea and Avalon are out of the picture. Second Archer needed to have seen the sword in real life or else he can't summon it. Third Godhand has a trick where it becomes immune to an attack once survived so he needs to use 13 different A+ BP's, which he simply doesn't have. Eventually he'd be forced to rely on either someone else or Rin and her stockpile of jewels to shave off the last couple lives.
>UBW simply doesn't have enough Broken Phantasms capable of breaking Godhand enough times.
It has Caliburn in there which killed him six times. Archer already managed the rest of the kills.
He's not at full power in Fate route because he gets disabled during the fight with Saber at the beginning. In the UBW route he's at full power because Shirou stops Saber with a Command Spell. That's why Archer would have won the war in UBW if he hadn't decided to focus on killing Shirou instead.
Hercules was a very skilled archer myth-wise, and I think he was considered as a weapon master overall. Lore-wise, in FSN he gets a bow that was gifted by one of the Greek gods, and its ranked S if I recall correctly.
Basically, it's his true NP, that was cancelled out as he ended up as a bahsahkah.
He would never take on Berserker in a head-on fight like that unless he absolutely had to, which he only did in the Fate route.
If left to his own devices he would either leave Berserker for another Servant, or set things up so that Berserker is weak enough for him to take him out in one fell swoop.
Right, he was, but I mean he would have actually "won" and not just hid and let everyone else finish each other off.
Also, Saber was still alive at the end. They both disappear because the grail is destroyed.
The thing is that with the world dying because mana drain, events don't play otu the same in Extra. He was able to do that nuclear plant job on his own rather than making a contract with the world back in Extra.
Caliburn is only that strong in the hands of Saber due to passive abilities. In Archers hands it wouldn't break Godhand as a sword and would only take one life, maybe two as a BP.
Fucking kill anyone who touches it.
the Lerneaen hydra was so poisonous its mere existence was giving people neasua. Hercules' bow has arrows tipped with its poison.
And I just thought of something else, if Hercules was summoned as a rider what the fuck would he ride?
The Nemean Lion?
The Erymanthian Boar?
The Creten Bull?
The Mares of Diomedes?
Shirou summons excalibur in its original form in the Fate route, I'm pretty sure at least.
Archer can summon any sword, so long as he's seen it and knows its background?, but it is always a rank below the real thing.
Play Tsukihime. Far better writing/story/characters.
Gilgamesh is best saved for the CCC route, with male MC.
He won't date with you anyway since you're 4000 years too early for his taste. He's your forever space bro though, guy will face any number of hells to pull your ass out of the fire once you're on his good side.
Excalibur Image: The Eternally Distant Golden Blade
It's a fake, but a fake that managed to get close enough to the real thing to be called a decent projection compared to how in F/SN he can't do it at all.
If I remember correctly, she does her excaliblast, says something, or comes to some conclusion about herself, and then disappears. Archer sticks around to talk to Rin.
Of course this all changes in good end, but that's an inch away from fanfiction.
The Einzbern house master is some baka apparently. Just because his spies report that Saber was disobedient, and not at all due to the fact that Kiritsugu was a dick, that he planned to enter the next war as a berserker's master.
He used an artifact to summon Hercules that may be of equal, if not even greater value, than that of the Babylonian serpent used by Tokiomi, but as a Berserker.
More people know the tales of Hercules than Gilgamesh. His tales even outlived his own times and lived on with the Romans.
>we'll never see Cu at full power, with his chariot, his horses Liath Macha and Dub Sainglend, Fragarach, Gae Bolg, all his Caster-tier runes and the ability to go Riastrad mode,
Andersen best Caster
>Gilgamesh :: Your speech is dull, but your eye for people is first-rate. I thought perhaps you were a mad dog begging for death, but your character is that of an adventurer who challenges despair. You put your life on the line to speak the truth. You put your soul in every reckless utterance. To you, to give up your words would mean the death of your soul. Compared to that, actual death is nothing to be feared.
>Andersen :: Quite right. Therefore I will fulfill myself, King of Heroes.
>Gilgamesh :: Oh?
>Andersen :: Though my tongue may be cut out where I stand, as I have been asked, I will speak my estimation of you without reservation! To start at the conclusion, you don’t qualify as a Servant! I can’t give you a single point! And as a heroic spirit? That doesn’t bear discussion! No matter what records you consult, Gilgamesh was a ruffian that brought suffering to his country and his people. Calling you a king of men would make me laugh. A fool who united heaven and earth, ruling over men without governing his country. A King of Heroes is just that, and not to be called a king of men even by accident. That principle of kingship is simply to reign. You establish yourself as a king, but that state is nothing but a storm with will. First you destroy. And after that you cannot even promise a good harvest. And in that sad state you gather the riches your subjects produce. Greed. Cruelty. And conceit. Those three things raised to their ultimate form and then made into one — that’s what you are.
>So, so close, I can’t listen to this…! Gilgamesh holds his imposing stance just as it is, not so much as twitching, looking on as Andersen slings abuse at him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he killed him right now, with that –
>Gilgamesh :: —–.
>— refreshed, expression…?
He actually can use it in Stay Night, he even says so during the UBW route, but he doesn't do it because at that point he's cut off from his master so using it would drain him completely.
>It's a fake
>Anderson :: Serfs raise their crops, kings raise their countries. But you didn’t even raise a country. You did at all nothing but kill and pursue your self-satisfaction. Your nation, your followers, your legend, none of it continues after you. The only thing remaining to you is yourself. Is this contract, too, nothing but an amusement to distract you from your boredom? An adjudicator who enjoys human emotions without understanding them. That is your true nature, Gilgamesh. Hakuno Kishinami. Don’t think you’ll come to understand this man. You should act as his Master and nothing else. All right! Feel free to take my life now! I have said what I wanted to say!
>Gilgamesh :: Heh. I have no need for your life. It is utterly insignificant. That was not an estimation of value, in any case. It is a story you have written. If your tale portrays the king, it will find room in some corner of my library.
>Andersen :: Well, that’s good, I didn’t fancy dying here right — wait. You recognize its worth? Then pay the fee! Will the famous golden king really just listen and be done with it!?
>Gilgamesh :: There’s nothing for it. When offset by such vilification, this is the assessed value of your work. If you want payment, reassess next time, mongrel. Though you a literary master with a twisted nature, after all…
>A malicious grin crosses Gilgamesh’s face. …these two may actually get along better than expected…
>sees the shit that went down with Zouken's Berserker and Kariya
>let's do it anyway lol
I wanted Kariya to win so bad even though I knew what would happen ;_;
>Answer: About the red Lancer.
>Andersen: Aaah, the daughter of dragons employed by BB. She’s an unsightly woman. That her appearance is so goes without saying, but the same applies to her character.
>Her upbringing is unsightly. Her ideology is unsightly. Her disposition is unsightly. Her sense is unsightly. I can’t bear to look at her.
>At a glance, she appears to be prideful, but others don’t see the truth behind that. That pride isn’t directed at anyone.
>She’s an utter laughingstock! That woman treats humans the same as pigs. In other words, she’s doing nothing but holding her head high in front of a bunch of pigs!
>That woman is the personification of narcissism, but well. Just what is love exactly? Something you steal? Something you bestow?
>A woman who has yet to understand that principle is the most unmanageable monster of this world. That woman seems to take pride in her own beauty but—
>Hah. No matter how how you adorn the outside of a bag stuffed full of garbage, the rotten smell of its contents won’t change at all.
>To be stubborn regarding their beauty is a woman’s nature. You should take care. The unsightly nature of those hands will propagate.
>One day the women you are acquainted with speak only similarly abusive remarks.
Guy just analyzes everyone in the game, with the voice of Dio Brando, and the personality of a far snarkier Kotomine.
How come the dialog in Fate/Extra's fight scenes isn't subbed? Like, whenever someone uses their fucking Noble Phantasm it sounds like they're saying something really rad but fuck if I know what it actually means because they're speaking moonspeak.
>Andersen :: About you? Your true nature? You have a breast full of courage, don’t you! Or rather, your chest is average and unassuming. There are various limitations on our privacy here, but…
>Kiara :: …Andersen. Why are you sneaking glances at me like that?
>Andersen :: It’s fine, the demands of this world have no upper limit! You can live in a corner, not losing to shameless bags of water!
>His concern is so excessive it’s maddening. If this were the Holy Grail War, it might have come to “Sword Or Death” with this Servant.
>Andersen :: …However…Entrusting your self-analysis to a stranger crosses the line from foolishness into courage. Very well, I’ll see through you without restraint! …I could put on airs like that, but with you it’s no good. You’re a typical, generic savior-type protagonist. Loved by the readers, loved by the characters, loved even by the plot. Boring. Short cuts aren’t my style. I can’t talk about you, and you don’t have enough value. You can ask me again…never.
>Kiara :: …*sigh* You’re saying something heartless like “it’s not worth talking about you,” aren’t you. There are things that trouble even Andersen’s poison tongue. My apologies, Hakuno.
>Andersen :: Don’t mistake the facts, you fool. I didn’t say that I didn’t want to talk about her. I said that she has no substance.
>“No substance”…Isn’t that an even harsher description?
>Andersen :: I can’t speak of something that isn’t there. Hakuno Kishinami. You still have nothing at all. I tell stories of things that are lost. Of giving one’s life in compensation, of destroying something, the details of ending a life. But it’s too soon for you. I’m a contrarian who can only tell a story of loss. You don’t need to stop here like this. Hurry and clear the fog of secrets, come to know yourself, and run toward a future where profit and loss flit about you.
Zouken's Berserker lost because Kariya was a shitty master and couldn't handle the strain.
It's not unreasonable to assume that fixing that flaw (getting a master with nigh-unlimited prana) would be a good thing, but the problem was Berserkers are fucking garbage.
Pseudo self insert. Remember, in the original VN, he didn't even have a face.
The one thing I really hope they do in the remake is dig into his character. Like, bring him up to the level of Shirou.
Probably because the entire story is about Shiki discovering the mystery of his past. Without that the story wouldn't work.
Either way Nanaya isn't "real", it's just a "what if" scenario for Shiki Tohno.
A lot of battle dialogue isn't translated
>Archer: The secret arts of China are also right here, "Divine Spear" Li. I strike with this Yin and Yang...!
>Assassin: Hou... Those swords, Kanshou and Bakuya. As if the Heroic spirits of the great swordsmiths were new once more.
>Julius: Do not prolong this, Assassin. That servant, he excels at drawn-out battles.
Fucking Rin's dialogue in CCC when Archer's NP is ready to use is hilarious.
>Archer, use that "I AHM DA BOONE OF MAH SORD" thing
>Suddenly, I don't really feel like I want to anymore
the best part? Berserkers were made garbage on fucking purpose by none other than the Einzberns themselves when designing the fucking shit because they set it up so that Archer, Saber, and Lancer had the advantage and the other classes would be free grail food.
Smaller localization studios usually don't have a programmer of any kind, they translate the scripts and send them off to the parent company to be implemented, then get them back and test them for bugs.
The reason they probably didn't add subtitles is because they lacked the ability to program them in and ImageEpoch probably didn't want to bother.
>Pseudo self insert
I don't think that's accurate, a great deal of the VN is Shiki's internal monologue and thoughts, so it's unfair to say he doesn't have his own personality. Heck the main reason the
Tsukihime animesucked so bad was because they cut out Shiki's internal monologues completely, so you had no idea why he was going crazy etc.
guess it's going back on my backlog
after I finish Fire Emblem 6 that is, fuck Berserk staffs fucking artificial difficulty.
