I saw an insightful comment about this game someplace, to the effect of
It's immature, but the characters are basically in high school, and a lot of us were immature in high school.
Though it seems to me like the game may not really be joking about perverted stuff so much as it is treating it with a nonchalant tone.

A bit off-topic, but that editorial about censorship in VNs made me wanna ask:
Why do visual novels without sex like this one generally get labeled as for all ages?

I think it's pretty obvious that deathsaber has never actually played an eroge.  I do find it a little amusing how he can defend something like this game while simultaneously looking down on eroge when they actually have a lot more in common than he thinks...

Wrong, I know full well what these games are. I've seen vids, read reviews here. Games like Eselia the Eternal that have actual rpg gameplay to go with the visual novel sex shenanigans.

So why not play these instead? Because:

1. I'm a married 35 yr old father of two. I can play a game like conception 2 on Vita whenever while sitting with my kids, or in bed right next to my non-gamer wife, and not rankle any feathers. Because other than some occasional innuendo laden text, the game is basically no different than any other JRPG. I certainly couldn't fire up some sex game nex to my wife, or in front of my six year old. 

2. I"m a pretty much a console gamer only. All I play is purchased from Gamestop/Target/PSN store. I don't do PC gaming, homebrew, steal games on torrents, or purchase those types of games from places like JastUSA (again, yes I do know about this stuff),. That said, don't call me a newb- I've had almost every console made since Colecovision, and I was a heavy PC gamer in the 90s, pre 3d acceleration, when I kind of stopped because I tired of trying to keep up with it all, and decided to stick with consoles. But no, I'm not a pc gamer anymore. My pc is just for work and internet now.

3. Honestly, I'm just not really into porn/hentai/eroge. Maybe, if I were younger, but I find the majority of it kind of weird and gross. If I want sex, you know, I go have some. So there.

Aselia is one of the eroge that includes an RPG battle system, and you make it seem as if these games are "porn" (despite many of them having minimal amounts of sex) like most people would or generally do, but any basically any movie with a sex scene is still a regular movie.

If you're not opposed to PS1 games, play the first Spyro trilogy especially if you end up liking these series much.

Heads up to the staff, the article about this named the wrong Oreshika as getting brought over.

If I had to get all arm-chair economist on this game and guess the reasons for why this game did so poorly in Japan, I'd say:

- Really poor timing due to the most recent tax rate hike inflating costs.
- And I mean REALLY poor timing since people who might have picked this up, tapped themselves out for the near future trying to get the most out of the previous tax rate before the hike.
- The fact that it was released for so many platforms has probably divided the fanbase and thus causing total sales per console to be divided too heavily.
- That it was targeting a niche audience to begin with.
- That the developer isn't a company usually associated with SRPGs, which might lead to several potential customers wanting to 'wait and see'.
- Not enough Moe Pedo Bait Waifu Wars CCG.

Either way, hopefully it'll be a self contained story because there's now a zero percent chance of this ever getting a sequel.

It could still get a sequel, if the localized version does well, seeing as Kadokawa makes some money back from licensing fees, not to mention the Zero Escape games have flopped so far in Japan, although they likely have lower budgets than this.

Just don't go all raving an ranting about how reviewers know nothing and your opinion is fact. That's annoying.

but it is fact

I guess it may be a thing.

The movement is definitely reminiscent of Valkyria Chronicles. It's surprising to me that a game that revolutionized the turn-based strategy genre like VC seemingly had so little effect on the genre. It often seems to me that, while new games in longstanding SRPG series are still fun, that they are still so dependent on many of their legacy systems and fearful of branching out.

VC mostly built upon Sakura Taisen and added light third person shooter elements.

Not necessarily RPG, but Rockstar titles are great sandbox titles with (perhaps?) RPG-ish elements (or at least I like it, maybe you will too?).  Red Dead Redemption is a really great game.

I got weirdly hooked to Kingdoms of Amalur and Dragon Age is a lot of fun too.

+1 Amalur, it's not especially strategic iirc and narrative seems competent, but it has a damn good class system with fluid combat.

Weird that it was toned down, but FF10-2 stayed intact (at least with Rikku's underage sex appeal) iirc although it probably had something to do with a change of staff.

And also notice the mention of PSP in the last paragraph, although it may just be referring to Tits SC.

Er, even if it wasn't I'm not sure how that's related to this.

Um, it wasn't, it was just pointing something out.
44  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Xseed localizing Senran Kagura Burst on: December 29, 2013, 01:50:32 AM
Okay, that makes more sense. Also noticed Wikipedia didn't have a source for Shinovi Versus, so I guess I should've known better than to trust it.

I had a similar issue with it but with Zeno Clash supposedly being a fighting game but it's an FPS/beat em up.

And dunno if it was posted someplace else but someone at Marvelous' forums pointed this out:
The silhouette in the left side of the image in this article matches up to this character and Marvelous even did something similar to promote SV.
And also notice the mention of PSP in the last paragraph, although it may just be referring to Tits SC.
Then in the bottom left is maybe this character.
No idea about the big one on the right, but looks like he(?) has glasses.

I wonder if we should be sensing a theme with Caim in D1 losing his voice and Mikhail also having a voice issue both in about 20 minutes after the game starts.
