No time to play games when there are boxes with creases to talk about.

Or keychains not sealed inside the LEs.

 

ba-zing!

So uhh has anyone here actually played Criminal Girls?  How is the gameplay?

 

Or did everyone that bought one and posted here not open it?

Us? Play games? That's a good one.

I'm over 4000 posts behind. I think I will skip to the end of this thread to catch up ;)

You didn't miss much. Mostly posts about box creases, really.

Durante has posted his alpha release for changing the rendering resolution of Neptunia on Steam.

 

For anyone interested.

Thank you based Durante. You da real MVP.

Played a little of Neptunia on Steam. It's an ok port. Unfortunately, no 1080p or above supported (max is 1600x900 I believe). So far it ran smooth and looks crisp.

 

Only played with an XB1 controller and all the bindings seem fine. I can't vouch for DInput controllers or the KB&M controls, but you can easily bind them to your liking. 

 

Only thing I found odd is that B is lited as Symbol Attack and A as Jump, but it's actually reverse. So I think it's just a typo.

 

Both English and Japanese VA is available. There's really nothing to complain about in regards to port quality.

 

edit: As for who this is geared for. It's basically a moe/cute/anime parody of video games in general. It makes a lot of references to other games. It's sorta like how Saints Row parodies games, but in this case it takes the form of a generic Compile Heart/IdeaFactory JRPG as opposed to open-world, sans vulgar humor replaced by kawaii desu.

Well, unlocked all the girls in HuniePop. It was actually a pretty good game. My only complaint is the difficulty of the match 3 minigame (it ramps up way too quickly), other than that it was solid. The voice acting is solid, as for the story/writing. It's not Shakespeare, but I didn't mind it. Best grill is Aiko by far. As for the bitch-dere route... I simply couldn't handle it. I'm not man enough for that.

Given how many Japanese titles are making way to PC I might have to upgrade finally to be able to play these unless they can run on a five year old laptop.

If you can run your average run of the mill Doujin game, there's no immediate need to upgrade your pc. Not that many "anime" type games have the graphics requirement of something like say Crysis or Battlefield.

 

Makes me start to think though. What if there was a Battlefield game, but all anime tropes. Damn that would be awesome. Something like a true Gundam battlefield game. I know there was something like that on PS3 and was f2p, but I heard it was just balls awful.

Steam is having an "anime sale" this weekend. Couple good titles, though most are still either priced too high or are not very good.

edit: And I guess Legend of Korra counts as anime... I have no problem with that (actually love the show).

 

edit2: Couple standouts are KoF XIII SE, Carpe Fulgar Collection, Analog + Hate Plus, and Ys games (these have been cheaper).

I thought it was. Just wasn't a fan of the animation direction. 

Lemme guess, not enough head tilts for you?

 

As fo the psycho pass VN... Not really liking Psycho Pass after season 2. Season 1 was great, even though the plot looked more stupid as it went on, the music was great to say the least.

Great news for Neptunia heading to PC. My preferred platform.

 

As for Blanc winning the contest... I'm fine with that. Maybe with a game devoted to her, she'll turn into full on tsundere... HNGGG

Who is neweggjeff and what happened?

He is NewEgg PR for CAG. Basicaly, he created a thread yesterday saying "monster deal" tomorrow. He hyped it up so much. When Midnight PST rolled buy, all that was found was a bitcoin xb1 deal and tons of furious CAGs who stayed up to see what this "monster deal was". They deleted the thread unfortunately.
