Final Fantasy Gaiden vs. Rune Factory 3 Features Fight

By Spencer . October 21, 2009 . 3:48pm

Four Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden and Rune Factory 3 are different games from different publishers, but they are on the same platform. So, a 2ch user decided to compare them, not based on either game’s story or gameplay – just on each game’s core features listed on the back of the box.

    I’m not sure why a comparison is needed nor do I see the point. What, is it that FF4W is lacking online or that RF3 only has 3 people playing? What?

    rune factory series pwn, avalon code pwnz, dont know what to say about the “not final fantasy” because …. as far as ive seen is just like another FF

    I’m having trouble seeing why this is worth posting. Then again, I guess I am making it a point to comment and say; it is a fun and interesting read.
    The two games mentioned, I want them. Rune Factory 3 more then Final Fantasy Gaiden.

      It’s from 2ch, it’s not supposed to make sense.

      Can’t wait for 4WOL

    MAAAAAAAAKUUUUROOOOOOOOSU~!, is what I think of this comparison. Also Am I the only one who thinks they’ve officially killed Rune Factory? This new game looks quite terrible.

    • PuddlesPuddles

      Based on a few screenshots, you think it looks terrible? What on earth makes you think that? (And don’t say the main character’s hair!)

      • RootBeerKing

        None of the character designs look appealing to me, and from the gameplay screen shots, I’m getting a really big Rune Factory 2 vibe(Which is a bad thing, in my books.)… If Rune Factory 3 returns to the same dungeon setup as Rune Factory 3, and Frontier, then I’ll over look the crappy characters.
