Thread Description
Western localization pesters the japanese devs into adding homo love to the broken Rune Factory 5

Rune Factory 5 released in Japan almost a year ago in a very broken state, but instead of working on fixing the bugs and adding content to the game, the devs choose to suck the western localization team's dick and added same-sex love to both the English and Japanese versions.

Bugs and very long loading time

Change "Appearance" to Change "Gender"

Less options (Plus a woke line to ensure that the player does not commit Seppuku)

Opinions:
If you like the males, then pick the girl protag. If you like the females, then pick the guy protag. This game does not need this gay crap.
>I can't relate to the young blonde Bishonen/Bishoujo if they do not share my gender and sexuality.
Western localizers and their audience really are parasites.

In addition to making every guy in the game to be into dick, XSeed seem to have also made the Japanese devs cancel the LoIi romance DLC

I can already see the spin the trannylators are going to conjure when they see this thread and the title; it's why I appreciate the existence of web forums and alternatives to social media, you can be truthful and not have to pay lipservice to retarded social trends.

XSeed has been a blight on the localization scene for years, with their behavior in this release of RF5 being indicative of why I simply don't bother with new Japanese games, there is no guarantee that you aren't paying full price for an incomplete or damaged product (rarely are they upfront). And even if it isn't defective, your money is likely going towards patently obvious attempts at neutering content for a mythical wider audience that doesn't exist. I could buy the latest generic fantasy kusoge to be ejected from the rectum of the Japanese game industry, or I could pay a fraction of the price for Wasteland 3. I suggest that you simply stop buying Japanese games, honestly, they can't design a traditional JRPG for shit anymore (FROM and their Souls accessories aren't traditional so don't you hit me with that AKTUALLY bullshit) and they remove the TnA that makes the misery worth the experience. If they want to lie with these snakes, then they deserved to die by their venom.

Addendum: Reading those reddit comments makes it obvious that the people they're pandering to now simply hate bishojo art. It's not enough that a character be canonically an adult and have tits the size of goddamn Jupiter, they associate bishojo with child. I believe this is what the kids call a 'skill issue.'

man here's hoping this game BOMBS hard, even after doing so much of the bullshit the queers wanted they are still not satisfied and we all know they never will.
you do not cater to these people no matter how vocal they are, doing what they tell you to do is like shooting yourself in the foot.
but what's more concerning is how these filthy rats have such control over the development team, you can't let these people just go around intoxicating everything they touch someone ought to stop them. but until that someone comes all we can do is boycot the game ourselves and make an example out of this game just like it happened with TEWY's sequel

If it makes you feel any better, the game plays like actual ass, so it'll probably bomb by virtue of it being shit. They could of spent the time refining the game experience and then releasing the Fag+ DLC later down the line, but nah we need to cut QA time to appeal to the staff of the AIDS dodgers at XSeed.

Lol
lmao

Weebs really deserve all of the shit they eat.

Rune Factory is a really appealing series

A run of bad games will drain that appeal really quickly. At least it should in theory, this is the generation that thinks that Fire Emblem: Three Frames per Second is a good entry.

pretty much this, only reason this shit keeps happening is dumb fucks keep buying it. At and end of the day nothing much we can do except catalogue the bullshittery as we are just gonna get replaced by the alphabet Reddit people anyway. since that's what who they are trying to sell these weeb games to but then funding out no matter how high they jump its never gonna be good enough.

end of the day it is what it is. The best you can do is just sit back and lol as the world burns around you and everything you loved gets shad on by parasites. bit of a black pill but that's just how it is right now

I do have to lol at some of the changes. like was changing the asset for the stamp really that fucken needed. like are gay people gonna die on seeing hetero wedding cake toppers in their fucken weeb game, for people who like to go on about overs being "fragile" they sure do get hung up on the smallest things

tbh the bigger issue for me would be the removal of the DLC content. sorry but there is no fucken excuse for that

People keep buying this stuff because they expect what they purchased previously. Until the game spits in their face, they'll keep buying it. Hell, they'll probably keep buying it even if that happens.

I still don't know why people like the Rune Factory series. It's always been rather poorly made. Only the first one was enjoyable, everything after kept getting things removed or fucked up.

It seems like it sold out on amazon, so it might not fail.

Rune Factory is a really appealing series, and switch games generally sell really well.
you are looking at the limited edition, which was likely produced in limited quanities as this is a niche title.

I think the damage done on the japanese side will likely have lasting consequences on the series and publisher.
Imagine being a glorified beta tester and instead of getting bug fixes, you get fag marriage because the western branch demanded it
BTW we also canceled your loli dlc

really starting to feel this way, after new xeno game trailer that, compared to Xeno 2, had basically no otaku appeal. looked like the "ethics department" had a word with the devs.
Not really in the mood of buying JRPGs again, unless someone like atlus is making them. even the trannylators of sega said something like "we tell them they just don't care!".
Small japanese devs too tend to be less idiotic.

About runefactory we will probably never know if this was due to xseed. after reading the japanese comments and 5ch boards quotes, they were indeed mad at this. im surprised actualy. but theyre complaining mostly because of "fan friendly" canons. some girls in the game were some dude waifus, introducing same sex stuff changes the canon and ppl get mad. it isnt inherently because theyre gay, but because is introduced after ppl already had their headcanons. ofc 5ch also has their own version of baiting like talk and ofc their own brand of fujoshi bashing, but its mostly their version of shitposting and making jkes. Havent seen something like this happen before, the japanese usually tease yuri but never state it or adress it. see: anime that teases yuri but never go all the way so ppl can have their waifu.

It seems I was banned from the Rune Factory 5 PC page for Excessive use of bigoted and discriminatory language even do I never say any bigoted and only pointed out the whole characters you don't date thinking they are dating you. I really someone mods this game on PC and removes that stuff.
