Endless fun, endless adventure, endless boob jokes, but hopefully not endless failure. Here's what I have to say.

    I've gotta say, this sounds dissimilar to the Original Generation titles I enjoy so on GBA. But not incredibly so, with enormous damage output, careful management of attack resources, and support attacks. When I first heard about the game it was as an action RPG but this combat is definitely not the typical action system. I like it.
    As for the boobs... I really have nothing to say that hasn't already been said.
    It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    BOOBS!

    There, that's about all that needs to be said on the subject.

    And this game is "action" in that it requires timed button presses. Other than that, nope, not action at all.

    This has got to be the best preview/impression I've read in a while. Great job!

    I have never played a SRW game, and by your impression it sounds fun. I will likely be picking this up when it comes out. Plus the BOOBS and robots!

    To warn you this is nothing like any other SRW game. Most SRW games are SRPG with giant robots.

    I'm going to make an educated guess and say the dramatic difference in play style stems from Monolith Soft and not Banpresto being the developer.

    Seconded. I'll be picking this up as my first intro to SRW. Hope it gives me a favorable impression of the series.

    Boobs. I can't really think of a better reason to support anything.

    But in all seriousness, it's another game I've played in JP that I am glad is getting a US release. It's fun.

    Even though I know that this game in nothing like the rest in the series, I went out today and purchased BOth Of the GBA gameS. At least I'll be able to get whatever bonuses are included.

    Bring on the Mammary madness I say. I just hope they put the stylus to innovative use.

    How about no use?

    I'd have mentioned the stylus if they ever used the thing.

    If this one achieves anything like the addiction level the two GBA OG titles did (four times through the second one, only thrice for the first) then I'll be enjoying this game for a long long time.
    ...But I didn't hear anything about branching paths (so far), and I picked up that there isn't a choice of characters at the beginning. Maybe restarting will allow certain things to be awarded at the beginning.

    Tell her it will keep you from looking at real boobs other than hers. thumbs-up.gif

    Tell her she can join in too, perhaps she was just feeling excluded.

    She's just jealous on in-game none-realistic boobs! devil.gif

    I might try this game. Too much strategy isn't my cup of tea, it's good when it's like FF10 or Heroes of Might & Magic. But when it goes further into the ultra repeative, it just far too much off.

    Looking forward to try it out! Ofcourse, only for the boobs!

    Does this game have any relation to NamcoXCapcom??
  • Michael BakerMichael Baker RPGamer Staff RPGamer Staff
    edited April 2009
    Wow, way to resurrect an old topic!

    But yes, it's done by the same folks who handled Namco x Capcom and created the Xenosaga series, which is why KOS-MOS and the original characters from NxC can show up in this game and not cause a copyright/licensing nightmare for a US release, the way the SRT games usually would.

    Oh, and Reiji & Xiaomu both make references to the NxC storyline on occasion.

    I just saw this game on Playasia and a very amusing description of the game's story:
    Quote: wrote:
    Story intended for mature RPG gamers—Intended for the more seasoned, older gamers, the story includes more nuanced, complex characters and manages to mix drama, romance, and humor to great effect.

    It would seem that boob-jokes are the new Shakespeare. laugh.gif

    Old Billy S. never backed down from a good boob joke. Or any other kind of sex joke for that matter.
