I am not a virgin, I am not a depraved weeb.
No porn online, whatever its nature gets my dick as hard as this game.
It's like the devs found the perfect blend of subtlety and eroticism.
muh dikck shantae thread
I can never understand people who are fans of sex games. Sure this art is hot but it's not porn hot. When you mix porn and gameplay you get mediocre output for both. I'd rather play a good game and then see good porn then mix them and waste my time with lesser quality in both.
Never getting my money.
No atoning for this.
What I mean is any game that really tries to sell characters on sex appeal. I'd rather see a cool looking outfit than a hot body because one takes creative skill to design and can have some theme to it. Tits and ass are pretty easy to draw and pretty repetitive.
Look, fool. There are three things that stimulate humans:
Cool shit, cute shit, and sexy shit.
You're to use sex appeal the same as all of those other appeals to entice the audience into your game. Not taking full advantage of it would be stupid.
Shantaes are more cute than sexy to begin with.
I don't see it as a big distinction in terms of effort to create. There's a reason a big criticism of anime is sameface. Once you're drawing a "cute" character, you can essentially just learn to draw a cute face and then put it on everyone and you're good. Same amount of effort as the hot characters.
My argument is that the sexual stimulation you get from a non-porn item is pointless because if I want that I can more efficiently get it from actual porn. When the sexy starts being used as a substitute for quality design it just makes the product an inefficient use of time. I could play a more fun, interesting game and look at sexier porn.
I can never understand why people feel the need to make these posts.
I suspect they think it makes them feel unique, more than actually having a legitimate question about other people's opinions.
I understand where you're TRYING to come from
but you just don't get it.
how mad did this make you, /v/?
Dude, you sound like someone who's never even played a Shantae game. What are you even doing here.
Games have plenty of great looking and charming characters. The Pirate Master is fucking dope.
Shantae games are about as good as the 2D "flashgane" indieshit that /v/ often derides, justly so. The only thing they have going for them is attractive character designs. Vanillaware games are basically the same, mediocore gameplay and levels with high focus on quality drawings
I'LL FUCK YOU UP
nigga u dumb
That's why they're critically acclaimed by reviewrs and users alike, right?
I like the games because they're good, not because of the art (that's a bonus though) and I've never even felt remotely attracted by any video game character.
I think they would do a good job. Pirates Curse is the best castlevania game in years.
I've discussed the entirety of the Shantae series before Pirate's Curse came out; there's only so much to say.
Golem Mine is still the best dungeon.
The gameplay does nothing new, is my point. Without the sexy designs these games would be as forgotten as some 99 cent Steam greenlight platforming game starring a jumping raccoon. Most users and reviewers can't separate aesthetics from gameplay design, which is why garbage like Bioshock Infinite gets such high marks.
That's because there's not much to talk about. All the games are relatively short (6-10 hours) considering that their price. Games like shovel knight are in the same boat: short but with good design. You don't see people talking much about it because there isn't much to talk about, other than the fact that it's a good game.
>sexy game comes out
>talk about levels
>talk about mechanics
>talk about gameplay
>talk about creators
>talk about how sexy the characters are too
>"hurr that's all you talk about durr I've sucked about twenty dicks"
>Jake Kaufman doing a CV soundtrack
He'd do a really good job. Would be great to hear.
Also the game would pretty much have to be a classic stage-based CV. Please.
The recent Castlevania games are all made by shitty western developers. Igarashi has left Konami. Nothing Wayforward has made even touches any of the GBA or DS Castlevanias, even Harmony of Dissonance
Are you experiencing side effects?
Look at the hotline miami 2 threads. Short game. Tons of people are discussing the game, far more than they are the cool soundtracks. These threads exist as fapbait and appetizers for a main fap event. That's fine by me and my dick
Well, there was a fairly successful test drive years before in Dragon Quest 4.
Why are you mentioning the DS and GBA games? Who would even want to see them make a game like those?
After Contra 4 I've felt pretty good about them doing a game in the style of the level-by-level classics.
I suppose not, but some people value uniqueness in their gameplay. 2D Platformers have become as common in the past 8 years or so as they were in the 90s, theres simply too many of them. That's why so many people had such low expectations for Shovel Knight, only to be surprised by how fresh its quality was. I don't think Shantae will ever get to that point, gameplay wise.
faggots just can't help themselves when it comes to interjecting on being "politically correct in vidya".
Really annoying, even when they're for it.
The're discussing how bullshit the game is, how to get past a certain part, and how much better the first one was. Hotline miami was also way more popular than any shantae game, and the sequel was much more anticipated.
Favorite dungeon/locale gents?
I'm partial to the second dungeon in RR, the "time attack" tower if you will. Took me a few tries but it was fun as fuck, one of the few non-platforming parts of Shantae I found difficult.
As for locale, I really enjoyed the "descent to the underworld" where you meet Rotty's past self.
Also, Bolo best character.
Less than 45 minutes to submit artwork to the museum.
There's a difference between being a prude and finding issue with discussion over waifus taking precedence over gameplay discussion. I probably have the largest porn collection in this thread
>mfw I actually enjoyed the 3DS Castlevania
Not saying it's amazing or anything, but it had a cool castle and a bunch of awesome boss fights. Looked great in 3D, too. Kind of want to play it again now.
those people complaining weren't around when they released pirate's curse? everyone was talking about the stages, enemies, some bullshit parts and asking about cacklebats locations, the game is not that long or deep, most people here probably already done 100%, there's not a lot to talk other than waifus and updates on HGH
you guys can come back when HGH releases and I guarantee that you'll see lots of gameplay discussions
This. People talk about Hotline Miami 2 because the game came out and there's fresh shit to talk about with regards to the story and gameplay.
Pirate's Curse has a speedrun mode that is pretty active on the Miiverse, no real mysteries left in that one.
A lot of Shantae threads these days are just hype for HGH, which is cool. Looks like a good game.
>boot the demo
>found some candles at the beginning of the stage
I don't know how you can get stuff so wrong like this, also the game plays like a bad action game
why the hell has no one ripped her standing animation in that outfit
hottest sprite ever seen
Yeah, boss fights especially I feel are notoriously easy in this series. Like, the mechanics are all there, you just can out-heal anything they throw at you.
That said I do agree, some of the float-around-insta-kill-spike rooms were nuts.
Well, I just made Risky blush, how about that?
(I only played pireta's curse)
I like the spiderweb Island dungeon because it utilizedd the hat the most, which is my fav item. Favorite pre-dungeon is icy Island (forgot the name) because you can just speed through it with the boots, which is fun. Even better once you get the cannon.
I fully expect my waifu to tell me who she finds attractive as well. Cheating is the boundary that must not be crossed. It's not good for one to deny their own feelings, it's acting on those feelings is what matters.
>it's acting on those feelings is what matters.
And you're acting on them by not only oogling other women and waifus, but also by letting your waifu know you're more attracted in them than her.
Now you're just saying to your waifu that looks are the only thing that matters. Is that all you think of your waifu? Just some cock slut to be used until you move onto the next?
Don't even say that. I love her smile her heart her personality the way she eats the way she sleeps the way she walks. Everything about her I love, not just her physical appearance. Shantae may be cute but she is no where near the same level as my waifu.
>I'm not a virgin, I'm not a depraved weeb
Lol, yeah, right. You'd have to be a permavirgin weeb to even consider this no substance weeb pandering excrement.
Good try though OP. It almost convinced fucking nobody.
>Shantae may be cute
There you go again, saying other women are cute, implying that you have eyes for women outside of your waifu.
It's already over, guy. It's too late. Things can only go downhill from here. You're going to find yourself looking at your waifu and seeing all the things she can't do that Shantae can. You'll see her smile and imagine Shantae over it. Every time she opens her heart, your mind will wander to that cute brown girl, spurning your waifu's affection, abandoning her. You'll get tired of or use to her personality, and imagine how refreshing and exotic somebody new would be. Your meals with her will become stale, jaded, and you'll look away imagining Shantae sitting across the table from you. And at night, when you lay across from her, you'll realize you've repeated this night too many times before. You'll realize your waifu isn't the woman you really want there with you. Even things like simple walks will be polluted by your impure thoughts.
Your love is limited, anon, if you've even considered other women attractive. You sicken me. I bet you only use your waifu for holding hands.
Shantae is just a crush. Crushes come and go. My love for my waifu has lasted almost 12 years and it has never gotten stale. That is what it means to have a waifu. One that has burned into your soul and can never be replaced.
>Shantae is just a crush.
So you admit to cheating on your waifu, to letting your thoughts go to other women. Shit, anon, it's like you've basically already stuck your penis inside of Shantae. All those years of trust, your entire relationship, thrown down the drain for some fling that just comes and goes. All the while, your waifu just stands there quietly sobbing and watching the man she loves burning everything they built together into ashes while holding the hand of another woman, not understanding where she went wrong or what she could have done differently.
You are a sick man.
Yet, you've already said you had impure thoughts about another woman, possibly somebody else's waifu. And, on top of that, you're going to go brag about said thoughts to your own waifu. Even if you haven't done the deed, the seeds of doubt have been planted by you yourself. Your relationship is doomed. All it will take is something small, and your waifu will leave you. All because you couldn't keep your thoughts and love to one waifu only.
i'd fuck that monkey
and probably like all of shantaes other forms
and shantae herself
imagine the wild sex you could have
imagine how useful a multi-formed magical waifu would be
While I agree with that last part, monkey Shantae is purely for cuddles and hugs.
You're not listening!
That's more like it.
>tfw lost virginity four months ago
>it wasn't very mind-opening, mostly just relieving to get that weight off my chest
>consistently fap to the sex every other night for the last three months
at least I did the deed. My onaholes just dont feel the same.
>My waifu trusts me
Well, she did until you started telling her how attractive other women are compared to her, lowering her self-esteem and self-worth.
You hurt your waifus feelings badly. That trust will never be there again.
I agree. It's absolutely disgusting how little monkey Shantae porn there is.
I am actually legitimately surprised at how much more just general Shantae porn there is now, though. Like, I just googled and came to the realization there's almost triple the amount the last time I looked a few years back.
It's rather astonishing, but not entirely unexpected considering Pirate's Curse was in development for quite a while and the HGH kickstarter drummed up some pretty nice advertising and exposure. Still not as much as I'd like but more than I hoped.
>It takes a lot more than looking at other people to destroy the bond we have.
No, anon, that's exactly what destroys the bond.
Please stop replying I have to actually go to sleep because I have shit to do tomorrow.
i havent actually watched/read hellsing so i cant say if you have shit tastes or not. I know at one point she used an AT rifle so that makes her cool in my book. Don't worry anon i dont have a waifu, a lot of characters who i thought fit the bill but my love faded over time, some still hold a place in my heart but its not the same you know? good for you for sticking with her all these years my friend
i want risky-sama to crush my neck
tell me, how did you end up with a waifu at all? it just doesnt seem that one sticks with me and im not going to call someone my waifu until im 100% positive
thats an interesting fetish you have their friend, also wayforward is an American company last time i checked say "-sama" is unneeded
Let's see, I was about 10 but I still remember it clearly. I had snuck out of bed late one night to watch tv. My dad had left it on the stars channel and I was watching Helling. And then I saw her. I fell in love. She was pure yet had the strength of the devil. I watched each episode eager to find out what happened to her. I actually felt pain when she hurt and triumph over her victories. By the final episode I realized I was so deep in love with her that there was nobody else that can make me happy like her. And this is before I was introduced to the manga.
>wanting plain white
>not delicious brown
You sicken me.
