Rune Factory 5 will get a PC port next month


Rune Factory 5 launched to moderate reception, with many critics and fans upset at the game's performance on the Nintendo Switch. As it was a platform exclusive, users were stuck playing the game at a stuttering framerate that not even patches and bugfixes could help. If that deterred you from the game, then you should be excited to know that XSEED is bringing the game to a new platform. Rune Factory 5 will hit Steam on July 13th, priced at $59.99, and a digital deluxe version for 69.99 that comes with item bundles. Those that grab the game at launch will get a bonus 15% off discount.

I believe that it is a balancing issue and not a force-player-to-be-gay type of thing.

Rune Factory 5, at least on western release when I played, have awful polishing, it is totally careless developed, unbalanced.

...Watch as it'll still run terribly, lol
Yeah probably. Rune Factory 5 and Deadly Premonition 2 don't run poorly on Switch because it's weak, they run poorly because they're poorly designed games.
That hardware specs seems a bit high considering this is a port from the Switch?
High requirements so they don't have to fix their poorly optimized game as much.

Yeah, I play a lot of Switch games...even Xenoblade 1 runs pretty decently. Some of these devs just don't even try it feels like.

Hi GBA community.

Oh god, what kind of game is that.
The trailer alone makes you feel bad just by watching it. Well, every company has to make a living, I guess.

If does, and you buy it, you will regret. The game is really that bad.

(Huge rune factory 4 fan here btw)
You've actually convinced me to try 4 again. I gave it a go, but it had a very slow start that deterred me slightly despite being a fan of things like the older Harvest Moons and Stardew Valley. Now I'm uncertain if I gave RF4 a fair shake.

That being said: A shame that RF5 seems to have performed badly. A bigger shame they feel so confident charging full price with this reputation it earned before coming to PC.

EDIT: Also yikes. Those are some spec requirements. For an RF game? That alone makes me suspicious enough to pass. I don't like devs who pass the buck of poor optimization. Though that's my supposition.

the ps3 version is a pretty good 3D RF game

Worst part of Rune Factory 4 is the beginning. Lots of things happen, and they are presented in a manner that make the player don't care. You have no attachment yet to any of those characters to care you know what I mean? So my tip is to do the first quests fast, than do a lot of farming (learn the tools here, to get you going), than talk a lot with people (to start to care). After that you will find your pace and the game gets super enjoyable.

For your comment I see that you will be playing RF4 after Stardew Valley, the QoL stuff of Stardew Valley may have spoiled you, so have some patience in that regard too.

This especially will likely be the case, but I can definitely be tolerant of some lack of QoL. It's my understanding that Stardew Valley learned a lot from games like these so it's only natural it came out a bit better for it. I can still enjoy things like Mineral Town or even the atrocious UI in some of my older PSP games, so RF4 will have to do something devastatingly bad to rule itself out on that basis.

It's just that the beginning felt rather unengaging, especially since I felt some of the cutscenes and whatnot dragged on too long, but again, I don't think I really gave it a fair shake as a result. I feel a bit more confident pushing through if someone's vouching for it. The way you're describing it makes it sound like a more farm-heavy Animal Crossing, another game I'm a big fan of (Well, big fan up to New Leaf. New Horizons failed to keep me interested), so I trust in the game's odds. Thank you.

It's not exactly that way, but from your backlog I'm sure you will like anyway. Just don't do 5, the RF5 is a shame
