      they completely fricked up the timing of the anime so it failed to promote the game because they ended up completely separate. Also they marketed the sequel so poorly people didn't even know the anime was supposed to be an ad for it.

      I think NEO was fine for what it was, and I'm glad it came out. It didn't click for me at first (I dropped the game for a year halfway into week 1 the first time), but I'd rather have an earnest and interesting exploration of the series than a what-if.

            It's enjoyable, but I find on hard that some fights I just have to sit and wait a bit for my pins to reload. Hard to have many interesting combos with limited pin slots. I'm also not a fan of the tripwire/timebombs.

              >I'm also not a fan of the tripwire/timebombs.
              Funny story about Time Bombs: they can actually set each other off. you set another one of your time bombs within the same blast radius of another bomb, it will instantly trigger, increasing the size of the explosion, turning them from passive tools into great defensive and offensive options. You can do this to make some insane combos/crowd control options.
              Trip Wire pins are interesting too since you actually have multiple ways to ensure that they hit. You can launch enemies into the air/knock ‘em down and chain them when they’re getting up, do wallsplats to ensure that the chain will hit them, hitstun them and then chain em, and more. The cool thing about Trip Wire pins is that they not only increase the damage of your further attacks (which you take advantage of with psychs such Heavy Slugger and the Fire Mashup attack) but if an enemy is weak to the affinity of the chain, you can do 2x damage.
              Another cool thing is that if you launch an enemy into the air and then catch them with a Trip Wire pin before they hit the ground, they actually still become susceptible to all aerial Beatdrop prompts. With certain set-ups, you can abuse this to get a ton of Groove.

                You don't get nearly as much value from tripwire when you only have 2 other pins to combo with instead of 3-5, either

              I strongly preferred Neku's. His character relationships are written well, and that's at the center of his character's development.
              Rindo's dynamic is quite different, and the over-dramatization of An0ther (and Rindo's lack of meaningful attachment to it) tanked the turning point.

                Neku's arc gave way to more interesting plot twists and moment to moment plot beats. It's always interesting seeing him interact with his partners and him leaning to trust Joshua in spite of everything is the perfect climax.

                >His character relationships are written well
                Outside of Beat, I found Neku’s relationships with Shiki and Joshua to be very underwhelming. Shiki is pretty much sidelined after her arc and is only relevant as Neku’s motivation and Entry Fee, and her relationship with Neku feels rushed as hell, which is kind of a problem considering how he started off trying to kill her, and Joshua’s supposed friendship with Neku isn’t really as fleshed out as I would like. The majority of their week together just has Joshua purposely pissing off Neku just to see if he actually changed and Neku rebuking him because of Shiki’s and Mr. H’s influence on him. Then Joshua “sacrifices” himself for Neku’s sake and the game plays on Neku’s survivor’s guilt to have him feel bad for how he acted towards Joshua but it didn’t really work for me, especially with how many red flags Joshua was showing and the ending hinging on his relationship with Joshua. By contrast, I found Rindo’s relationships with Fret and Shoka to feel much more naturalistic and developed, especially with Rindo’s and Fret’s shallow friendship actually becoming deeper as the game progresses.
                Also, the point with Rindo and An0ther is that Rindo’s entire arc revolves around his lack of a solid identity and how he ties himself to An0ther in order to make up for that only for it exacerbate his problems more since he’s only spouting these pieces off without even fully understanding what they mean and lives by them half-heartedly. The moments where he's forced to use Replay to change how things work, or where he actually makes decisions based on what HE wants (like letting Shoka join or his entire conversation with Motoi in W2D7) are steps towards him changing that and by the end, he learns to apply his own meaning through An0ther’s quotes and shape them to be what he perceives them as.

                She's a woman with self-esteem issues, who's implied to have killed herself over a small remark. It's a convenient aspect of a character flaw, much like Fret's friendship with Rindo.
                >and Joshua’s supposed friendship with Neku isn’t really as fleshed out as I would like. The majority of their week together just has Joshua purposely pissing off Neku just to see if he actually changed and Neku rebuking him because of Shiki’s and Mr. H’s influence on him.
                True, but there's a bit of agreeable ribbing in that.
                Joshua leaves enough room for compromise out of respect for his partner.
                >especially with how many red flags Joshua was showing and the ending hinging on his relationship with Joshua.
                The weeks wore him down.
                Rindo has a decent story basis, but their focus on his indecisive character and resolution for his arc tainted the latter half of the story. He's continuously nudged into the lead role by more qualified people, and their group essentially lacks a brain trust whenever he hasn't used Rewind.
                It's not a character thing, and the one time it's painted as being so, he makes a decision he shouldn't have, with the game playing it off as the right move. It's easy enough to be assertive when you're not responsible for your failures and no one is willing to fight you for influence.

As for Rindo and Fret, their friendship was made solely to cover up for each other’s own insecurities since they don’t need to actively work on them if the other guy doesn’t care to discuss it.

                You don't let someone make or affect decisions if you don't have even the slightest bit of respect for them. They're mean to each other, and it surpasses abuse, but they still have a working relationship there.

                For as much drama as you put into that, it really was a brief incident, and she saw everything that went into it. A known threat playing with the rules and promising that if he didn't do it, she'd kill him in 1 minute. Hardly fair.

                It’s almost as if that was my entire problem with Neku and Shiki’s relationship to begin with.

                You wanted drama, but the setup wasn't right for it to begin with. If he'd been given time to ruminate on the offer and decided to pull that on day 4, without the benefit of Hanekoma's intervention and mediation, it would've been what you wanted it to be.

                That is realistically how Shiki should’ve reacted, yes.

                The fact that he didn’t even try and was even surprised that Hanekoma would force him to apologize should’ve weighed on her a lot more, yes. Especially since Neku actually tries to absolve the responsibility by going "she tricked US", which Hanekoma calls him out on.

                That really doesn't communicate anything. Again, Hanekoma stopped the emotions from snowballing. He distributed blame fairly and hastened reconciliation precisely to prevent the situation you describe.
                >At that point, she should’ve been keeping one eye open on him at all times because who knows what he’ll do if another event like this happens?
                The brief argument between Hanekoma and Uzuki showed everyone she wasn't acting in good faith, and she did abuse his particular ignorance to set him against Shiki. A bit unfair to treat that as a simple character flaw.

                They have an antagonistic relationship, but Neku begins to warm up to him after Joshua introduces him to his hero and he stops suspecting Josh of being his murderer. The trust solidifies after Josh saves Neku from Minamimoto apparently sacrificing himself.

                Yeah, but Neku doesn’t particularly warm up to him in person UNTIL Joshua does his sacrifice (not that they had time to considering Sho’s boss fight happens the very next scene) and by that point, it’s mainly survivor’s guilt fueling his feelings towards the guy, which isn’t exactly healthy grounds for a relationship in which Neku actually considered Joshua a friend.

                Honestly, for as much as I like OG TWEWY’s pacing, I think a lot of it kind of hurts a lot of the potential relationship building and characterization of some characters. Like, did anyone actually give a shit about Rhyme before her death?

                Neku warms up when he meets cat and does so further when he realizes that they're both loners and dislike being around other people. Neku having that flashback is a turning point in their relationship which later fuels the guilt

      NEO is very good but it hurts me because it made some obvious [to me] missteps.
      I think that Hype Chan should have gotten more screentime, possibly having her as a foil to Shoka before she gets brainwashed or whatever.
      There also should have been a 4th week. After fighting mr. manlet and Kubo getting revealed as the true villain there should have been a full week inbetween where Rindo seeks out the Shinjuku reapers and we get more backstory about them. Maybe have them temporarily replace your party as well or something. I felt there was a lot of plot that was just sort of left at the wayside with them. Like mute phone-text guy. After that go to the "Last Day" derivatives (which was a cute math detail) with all of the Shinjuku reapers on your side.

      My autistic sequel idea (The World Ends With Two) I still think is better than NEO.

      To be fair, the original TWEWY was overshadowed back in 2008 by both its unconventional control scheme as well as the online perception of being a game for weeaboos and weeaboos only despite its charming tale of Neku learning to not be such a self centered anti-social prick. (Probably not helped by all the yaoi fangirls running wild with Neku and Joshua having the best chemistry of all three partners Neku has)

      Is there any undub/re-translation patch for NEO? If so I ain't playing a game with a butchered localization.

      As someone who had the same attitude, I recommend trying it. They do a good job of letting the original game stand on its own and while some characters do return, they do so to both exhibit personal growth in those characters and to play with motifs across the two games. It's a much slower-paced story though, so the first week might seem a little shallow because NEO lets all its arcs play over the full game rather than going through certain characters week-by-week.

      kore is "this" rather than "it". rindo is showing the pin directly to her. she's responding to seeing it.
      now the important part. "let me have it" is fricking lazy translation. いただける is to recieve, but it's absurdly polite. if she was just saying "hey are you giving me that?" it would be くれる.
      she's very politely receiving the gift. it's rare merch from her favorite yaoi bait and she's shitting herself at the thought of getting it. in her mind, rindo is not "letting her have it". he's honoring his vassal soldier with a gift far beyond what she deserves.
      nagi larps as a low-level samurai and, in this scene, rindo establishes himself as the lord of their state. he "bestows" an "incredible gift" on her.
      plebeian wretch is a bit silly but the scene is supposed to be silly.

        some autistic manchild from their forums section has been spamming vocally anti-localization threads using this game as their main subject for butchered and woke writing, making it near impossible to get a decent Neo TWEWY thread going ever since

          NEO TWEWY has a bad localisation, most japanese games do because the actual professionals who would do their job correctly are translating government documents. You only defend localisations because you can't speak Japanese, you have no choice but to play localiser slop, mageknight.

            translate these better than squeenix did with regard to original intent, tone and character

            What I remember most about NEO was the horrendous fanfic localisation

            https://varishangout.com/index.php?threads/checking-the-localization-of-neo-the-world-ends-with-you.414/

            the scenes are full of jokes in japanese, and the localizers wrote jokes in english that convey the same sense of humor.

        Wait, so I can understand being in a KH thread and hating KH2gays, because there are KH games other than KH2. There were two of them, in fact, before it came out.

        But why are you in a TWEWY thread if you don't like TWEWY? You're not even writing long rants about why the game is bad, you're just passive-aggressively sniping at it with 2cool 1-liners. There's no impetus for you to be in here.

        Like, you can be, go ahead, I'm just really confused about how you even managed to end up in this thread. Unless you're the translation guy, in which case it all makes sense.

                another perfect example of the translation being extremely accurate to the original intent and understanding the characters a lot better than autists on a mongolian basket weaving forum.
                悪かったな is his catchphrase. it's an absurdly flippant "my bad", probably said sarcastically or with zero emotion at all. you would expect a bratty, emotionally detached teenager to say it.
                in english, "whatever" is a perfect equivalent. they have to have him say this catchphrase often enough that even rinoa notices it, so they translate a few extra lines as "whatever" and change some of the 悪かったな to something else.
                if you're looking at single lines and struggling through a japanese-english dictionary you would go "durr 悪 means bad. why isn't he saying bad. need fan patch." if you read the whole script and try to understand intent, you get exactly why they did it that way.

              There’s actually quite a lot of things I like in NEO over the original. In the original, while the game likes to go on about the stakes of the Reaper’s Game and how it’s systems works, you never get to see how it affects the other Players outside of the main cast besides Sota and Nao and while they’re nice and all, there’s not a whole lot I can tell you about their characters. Meanwhile, NEO has a whole bevy of interesting Player side characters that really sell home the psychological effects the rigged games have had on them, with the team leaders being a prominent example since they contrast the main cast in quite a lot of ways. This is something NEO excels at in general, utilizing the subtle aspects of the character dynamics and the way they shift and change to tell you so much about them, which makes the world feel a lot more expansive than the original in my opinion.

              I also really appreciated how the game wasn’t afraid to not hold your hand and just tell you how the characters feel and try and infer that for yourself. Kanon’s reactions towards Motoi getting Erased tells you without words just how much she’s seen this same song and dance time and time again.

    They did screw up NEO's release with no marketing and releasing it the same week as Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. Guess which one the average weeb the game was suppose to be marketed toward played that month. They fricked it up AGAIN afterward by shadowdropping the steam release one day before PERSONA 5 ROYAL'S PC PORT. There was no way it had a chance against that game, not a fricking prayer. I have no idea what they were thinking aside from tinfoil hat theories about deliberately sabotaging the game. I understand fricking up once against Great Ace Attorney. But walking it out to die on a shadowdrop against a telegraphed Persona 5 Royal PC release was utterly braindead.

      Then again. Stuff like grabbing is actually pretty underutilized in general

      I thank God everyday that NEO didn’t fall for the stagger bar meme for its combat design.

        What about him?

          At least that form gives him a unique stance system and more moves you have to be aware off as well as a counter you can exploit.

          He gets a pass because if you’re good enough, you can make it so that he never enters his armored state.

      I always find it humorous that FF16 got hyped up to no end due to getting one of the DMC guys on the combat yet that game has far less unique and interactive hitstates than NEO does, not to mention bosses you can’t juggle for some reason.

      As much as I like Hi-Fi Rush, that game gives you crumbs as far as enemy interactions go - iirc if you knock down an enemy into another enemy they won’t react. With Souls influences, even juggles are disappearing - now you’re lucky if you'll get easily accessible hitstun. Nevermind wallsplats, wall bounces, ground bounces, spin, dizzy states, forward launch, sweep knockdown, different types of air juggle states, etc. We’re going backwards!

          That's what happens when your games attract the fujos and yujos. Fanfics and OC in every thread.

        DD2 was such a wet fart. DMC5yearsago wouldn't sting so much if DMC6 had come out two months ago. Instead we have to wait five more years. I wanted DD2 but it just wasn't worth it.

        >NEO will be three years old in a month

        Thankfully, I already had my mental breakdown this year, and I no longer care about how the last five years of my life have been a black void of nothingness. I'm sure it's a common sentiment anyways, with the pandemic and everything. Really the worst part was getting a job.

    not even close, honestly the fact that it ever went past the original release on the DS is a miracle. someone in the company clearly loves the IP, shame it isn't more popular though.

      i think that would be the only avenue to make the series A LOT POPULAR than it was when neo came out, but i kinda don't want that for that same reason.

        TWEWY was perfectly sculpted for the DS, and the themes of connection despite separation don't hit nearly as hard when you're not literally cut off from your partner by the hardware.

    Needing people to actually pay attention to what are very obscure games while gatekeeping instinctively at the same time is rarely a good combination. The second fans threw an absolute b***hfit when NEO started getting compared to P5 before release was the second it NEO never had a chance

      Its okay, better then phone version, but still not as good as DS. Its a fine alternative if you have no DS.

          You need to point joycons for it to work decently so I imagine you'd need to buy it if you can't do that on yuzu
