    I played the remake of the first one, I think. It was kinda shit. An obvious budget as fuck JRPG and combat wasn't particularly interesting. I guess they might be enjoyable if you're into the type of storytelling and characters the game offers. I love my anime schlock but this was kinda eh. Also Pluto or whatever best girl despite just being an added character that doesn't really exist in the story.

    I think if you're deep into being a shameless weeb who likes typical anime bullshit, they probably have a lot for you. I can't help but feel like it's a series that won't survive much longer, it seems like it had a heyday in the PS3 era and now anytime I see it, all the references and whatever just seem...dated.

    The gameplay is like standard jrpg shit but made more tedious by the fact that you have to move the characters into position to attack. If you just want something to shut your brain off and reduce your IQ, it is like Kemono Friends in that regard. This isn't intended to be a scathing review, it is an endorsement actually.

      I played caligula effect. With a bigger budget they could've had something there. The music was head and shoulders above everything else though. I think they got an actually very talented singer to just sing a bunch of j-pop songs and act as one of the main characters. She sings everything on behalf of a bunch of the villains. What a guilty pleasure, it's one of the only weeb games I've played and the only exposure to j-pop I've had.

      They even fucking registered the fictional characters as artists on youtube.

        The second one has something that roughly resembles budget with dungeons containing shit like puzzles and gimmicks instead of pure corridors. I actually enjoyed it a lot more but it has the same issues as the first game when it comes to gameplay, shit gets too easy if you don't deliberately keep yourself a bit underleveled and even if you do you eventually become too fucking strong.
        But it has DIO as the antagonist so all is forgiven.

      This. Believe it or not, Ryza actually has something you can call "depth" when compared to these shitty games especially Rebirth 1.

      In Rebirth 1 you just select ugly copy-pasted dungeons from a JPEG of a world map. At least in Ryza there are hub areas you can return to and do some different things besides fighting the same guys over and over.

      gameplay wise its the absolute most basic rpg drivel you can think of, and rebirth 1 is infamous for being grindy. story wise it's cute anime girls making kind of funny jokes and gratuitous references to other anime and VNs sprinkled with slightly too many 4th wall breaks to be palatable. it's alright as long as you know what you're getting into and pretty soulful in a "indie game developed by a single game in his spare time" sort of way despite being netiher of those things. personally i had a good time beating it while watching scrubs, it certainly doesn't demand too much of your attention

        I don't know where this shit about grinding comes from. If it's pic-related then you just fucking suck at JRPGs in general, including games as super-simple as Neptunia are. You didn't use ALL of the available resources to you, which includes buying equipment at the shop. There is no grinding, you defeat one of each enemy encounter in the dungeon then move to the next event marker, which is likely a boss. If you have to grind in these games (which is a solution unlike most JRPGs which have real depth) then you're doing something stupidly wrong.

        I'll never forget when I played Rebirth 1, hadn't saved in quite a bit, then suddenly I got locked in some Lastation factory and there was a boss at the end with no way for me to save. No warning about that, just suddenly you can't save anymore
        Ended up having to grind for hours out of sheer terror that the boss would kill me.

        Yes, is that because the dub can affect your interest in the game the problem, for example I have a friend who ignored all the new spin-offs just because it didn't have english dub, and I say, it was so hard for them to play it in the original language it was created? We are not talking about a cartoon of childhood or something like that, the great majority of people who play it are older, that is already known
        Now he is interested again because it has an english dub, and because it is a "continuation" of the main games

          The thing is those two games were the ones that only have JP voices. Vtuber game would have no point existing if it were dubbed since all the JP tubers appeal is their actual personalities. Having them be dubbed over loses all the appeal and probably breaches contracts with the agencys representing those VTs. Since mixed dubs aren't really a thing they chose not to do it. Then Senran doesn't have a confirmed English cast so they didn't bother. Now it's all Neps only so they can again. It was all logical but they took it as a personal attack.

    The main series started out objectively awful and gradually improved to the point VII is a game I would honestly recommend to some people (assuming I knew they would enjoy the mood/humour etc.) sincerely.

    The mood itself is the core selling point though, so if you don't like light hearted, self-aware and referential humour and cute girls doing cute things style stuff, it's not going to be for you, but if you can enjoy those things, they can be fun games. I thoroughly enjoy the mood and the way it massively leans into the sillier side. Heavily carried by its appealing and likable cast, unsurprisingly.

    The gameplay isn't the main draw and never really has been, but it's servicable and sometimes mildly fun in VII. It does its job, but there isn't anything inherently interesting to the gameplay besides perhaps how some of the animations can be fun.

    The spin offs vary considerably in quality ranging from bad to acceptable and span a fair few genres. The main series is consistently okay (with the exception of the original PS3 version of the first game which is objectively fucking awful). VII is the peak of the franchise and is actually decent.

    Neptune is one of my favourite vidya characters. She's a legitimately fantastic protagonist.

      Some of these ticked my boxes but I just could not get into VII. It really feels like a game you could only appreciate if you suffered through the terrible games before it as well as be incredibly familiarized with the cast from said experience playing through the terrible games beforehand.

    The Nep games are 6/10 JRPGs that keep reusing assets even though they have cute and fun characters. The mainline stuff is worth getting on sale, but most of the spin-offs but 4GO aren't really worth it even if they're free. IF's other non-Nep stuff the last 5 years has actually been pretty decent though.

    Whats the starting point? Last time I asked someone said Rebirth 2 because Rebirth 1 was written as a standalone story and isnt relevant to anything else. Is that still true after more games have come out?

      The main story still starts with rebirth 2, but rebirth 1 is also recommended as starting point, because it presents the main goddesses at a good pace.

    The first game had the best jokes and best representation of the main girls characters. No game after it has managed to be as funny and endearing as the original Hyperdimension Neptunia on the PS3.

    I somewhat enjoyed them, but it’s basically okay ideas with barely any execution to them. Stuff like positioning would be cool if it was more relevant than once every hundreds of fights. They recycle the fuck out of dungeons and they aren’t very good in the first place.

    So what's Nepgear's new game like? I'm gonna assume that the story's probably not great. Neptunia stories have struggled for a long time. They blew their load in terms of ideas with the first game and expanded on those eyes reasonably well in Re;Birth1, but that's it.

      It's actually good. Partially because the story is back into Hyperdimension and not another clean dimension, so there are references to what happened and what is going on now.

        Eh, I'll believe it when I see it. It just sounds like an alternate take on Nep2. A massive issue with Neptunia as a whole is that the devs clearly have no idea what to do with the main CPUs, so they keep trying to write them out of the story or keep them busy with B-plot stuff.

        >Nep2: They're captured for most of the game.
        >Nep3: Nep goes to another dimension, allowing her to interact with fresh alternate versions of the characters. Subsequently, the "normal" versions of the other CPUs are completely and totally irrelevant.
        >Nep4: They're absent in chapter 1, busy with a pointless B-plot in chapter 2 and irrelevant in chapter 3.
        >Nep5: They're absent again.

        It's a very frequent issue in the main games and the devs are clearly sick of these characters.

    I like nep but couldn't recommend them to even the weebiest friends. The gameplay of any of the titles is the pinnacle of average. Nothing wrong with any of them on a technical level, but the gameplay is the most basic, competent but boring vehicle with bare minimum presentation to get you to the characters and skits. If you don't like Nep, you won't be able to bear the gameplay for long enough to see them through.

    TOP NEP is a great Space Harrier knockoff.

      Play Re;Birth1 first. It's probably the best way to tell if this series is for you or not. If you don't like Re;Birth1, you're unlikely to like the rest.

                That's just lazy writing. Neptunia's writing is usually fairly convenient but that's overkill. So they still halfassed it. When it comes to writing tragedies, you have at least put a little effort into it. Hubris, a poorly dealt hand, greed, self-destruction, etc., etc. No matter what it is, you need to be more careful in how you portray the events that lead up to that tragic ending. In the Conquest ending, the tragedy is "the sword made everyone stupid and out of character so Nepgear killed everyone because the writers needed her to." The only real tragedy here is that the writers didn't give a fuck.

    Does Nepgear's new game has conquest end?

      No. Conquest end can only really happen once. If you keep doing it, it becomes normalized and loses all shock value.

        Yes and no, it can't happen frequently but you can do something like it more than once. It's been long enough that if they did it again it would stand out. Especially if they doubled down on the edge.

    I'm honestly amazed this series is somehow still alive. The quality's been declining so steadily that by now even actual fans say the games are trash.

    If you're new, don't listen to lorefags, just play Re;Birth 3 first, it's the best Neptunia game by a landslide. It's a remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory from PS3 with some extra dungeons/bonus content/extra scenes (think Persona 5 Royal). Victory was Compile Heart's most successful game during that era, which led to them making tons of Victory clones, like Fairy Fencer F, Dark Rose Valkyrie, Death end re;Quest and so on They're all visual novel/JRPG hybrids where the only 3D parts are the dungeons and the hub is just a menu.

    Personally, I stopped buying nepslop about 4 games ago, just can't vibe with all these crappy arena fighters. I still play Compile Heart JRPGs from time to time (Dragon Star Varnir was the last one I liked), but they pretty much stopped making them, so RIP.

      IF could have turned Neptunia into a major franchise if they weren't so fucking lazy. Just look how many weebs, myself included, still cling to the IP despite all the remakes and whoring out to any developer to shit out a spin off.

    I like the games. They are low budget games that don't do anything groundbreaking or amazing but I've still enjoyed playing them. I began with the original game on PS3 game back in late 2012. Had to buy a copy on eBay since it was out of print at that point. I pre-ordered the collector's edition of V. I got the PC version of VII when it released and haven't played another Nep game since. I found each new game to be better than the last with Mk2 being the biggest jump in quality in terms of gameplay. Is Sisters vs Sisters an actual mainline game? I know it's been out in Japan for a while now.

          >VII keeps randomly crashing in battles and I cannot figure out a cause or a fix beyond the fact it seems to be driver-related
          If this shit is gonna happen in all the old games I will be extremely upset.

            play VII in window mode and make it full screen with borderless gaming, this fixed the random crashes for me

            None of the Neptunia games are "good" ports, but for some reason they got worse after VII instead of better.

      VII barely runs on PC
      VIIR runs on Deck but you need to do some neckbeard linux shit to play it also VIIR is shit and VII is better

    I got what I think is the first one on PS3. It was ok, but pretty forgettable. It weirds me out how many of them there are now. Fanservice, eh?
