The third game was pretty much set in the industrial revolution.

Though no matter the case, when your daughter turns 14 in PM4, she can visit the magic realm.
Initially the idea is only that the princess is in the human realm for means of hiding. Then it's up to you to decide what to do with the heritage and whether or not she should embrace that world or not.

Wonder Project is bit different, in a world almost swallowed by the oceans. You, Father/Creator/God, guide this perfectly idiotic robot in a desperate attempt to keep it from destroying itself. First game features a boy robot, second game a girl robot.

Perhaps one of the most satifying moments is when the subject asks you who YOU are. Depending on how successful and good you have been to it, as well as your answer to its question, the reaction changes can be surprising.

Why are game journalists so awful at what they do?
He basically admitted to how he barely has any idea of what the game holds, yet he titled it "disturbs its way onto the PSP", and accompanied it with a "NO THANKS" banner over an overly worried body of text.

How is trashing foreign games you have little to no knowledge of, quality journalism of any kind or level?

Sensationalism sells.

Take for example "The missionary position", by the Hitch, where he goes against Mother Teresa. Had he written a sober, moderate story on what her activities were and whatever she promoted, would it have sold at all?

>I was under the impression that PM2 is the only good one.
It's not. But it's the only translated one.
PM3 gets a lot of flak (quite understandable though) for taking out adventuring. But it made up for it by expanding on social hierarchy and stuff and is honestly quite great with all the jobs and the expanded parenting role.
PM4 is pretty much the most simplistic and thinnest game of the entire franchise gameplay-wise, but had fancy art and stuff or something. And thus I tend to argue the game is really nothing special in comparison to the rest of the franchise.
PM5 is wonderful though if I were to say so myself. I can understand people missing the more direct fantasy setting of the first games, but I otherwise really feel like they capitalized on all the strengths of the previous titles with this one.

But PM2 is wonderful. Play it and see what you think of it. It should be on abandonia and all kinds of other places as the translation is abandonware.

Interesting stuff if you care about this sort of thing.

The last paragraph almost brought a tear to my eye.

>> No.10652670

Yeah, I did read that and found it interesting, as I really do care about that particular era in PC gaming. Many crazy things happened. People consider Wolfenstein 3D the first 3D game/engine ever, although Ultima Underworld predates it and is considerably more advanced even when compared to Doom engine.

The direction the mass markets took, even back then... it's unfortunate. Why are FPS games so popular?

>"MS-DOS?! Ewwwww!"

Also he makes a good point. Why do people call the game abandon ware? It's kinda like thinking Touhou games are free games.

>> No.10653120

Because it actually IS abandonware. It's not freeware, but rather, abandoned. Current license owners for distribution in the western world are not enforcing their ownership nor giving a fuck.

>> No.10653130

>Why do people call the game abandon ware?
I know that it's technically not abandonware. But it's recognized as such for whatever the reasons by pretty much most of any place that distributes them.
And it has never been taken down. So I don't know. It's a faux-abandonware game through breach of copyright or something.

But it's not exactly as if it's possible to purchase the game, so it's pretty much for the better this way.

>> No.10653163

The/his point was that Gainax still owns it and it doesn't matter if it's distributed in the west or not to determine if it's abandoned.

>> No.10653192

>>10653163 and it doesn't matter if it's distributed in the west or not to determine if it's abandoned.

Surely that's the very definition of 'abandonware'? The term has nothing to do with legal status.

Gainax? No, not really.

So iDOLM@STER games are abandon ware because they aren't available to the west?

>> No.10653274


I should have phrased that better. PM2, to my knowledge, hasn't been legally available in the west for ages short of the secondary market, and it seems very unlikely to ever be re-released. It's abandoned. Pirating it doesn't harm Softegg, Gainax, or the series's future prospects in any way that I can see.

If someone decided to acquire the Princess Maker IP and then rerelease all the old games it would hurt them to have a free version available.

>> No.10653473


That's why I noted that it's not likely to be re-released. Hell, PM2 is a dos game from 1993. Unless I'm mistaken, there's been no interest in releasing anything else PM-related since then, either.

Do you really expect the scenario you sketched out to occur? It's a massive stretch to claim pirating the game is harmful because it might hypothetically divert sales from a re-release all evidence indicates will never even happen.

I admit piracy isn't always harmless, but in this case it's as victimless as a crime can get. It might even be a minor good for the series- I'm sure I'm not the only one who's bought many games I pirated and liked.

>> No.10653482

X-com was re released even though it was a dos game, and also piracy of an outdated version was the reason RPG makers weren't released for the computer for USA any more.

>> No.10653483

Some asian company already owns the distribution rights for PM outside of Japan. Apparently they don't give a fuck.

The Gainax-SoftEgg-Intracorp deal is dead. SoftEgg's translation is abandonware.

If anything, having the old PM2 available is just a free advert for the series. But in case the licensee wants to release it on gog.com or something, that would mean the end for the title's abandonment.

>> No.10653515


I don't know about Rpgmaker, but you're really reaching with the X-COM comparison. That was a critically-acclaimed series with actual name recognition and multiple releases all the way up to 2001 even before the reboot. Princess Maker is an obscure Japanese raising sim with exactly zero titles released in the west and, again, nobody has shown any interest in even doing so.

Let me ask you again- do you seriously expect to see PM2 end up on GOG or something like that? I mean, that would genuinely be cool, but get serious.
