Hey y’all I wrote up the first three chapters for a friend so maybe y’all would like to read it and I will continue for the whole game. I know it is written awfully but hey on my phone y’all. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER for a game you will never get to play. This first post is up to chapter 3.
So you get to choose your gender and then you get to choose your relationship with the Female NPC (GF, childhoodfriend, cousin?). I can’t remember because I saw Lesbian relationship in video games and had to jump on that. And good on them letting me do it even if the most we have done is she has held my hand while we run from things. Also I am pissing her off by choosing ANIME options in dialog trees.
And the dialog trees are great. You can break them down into roughly three categories ANIME, SERIOUS, and ASSHOLE. There are plenty of variations on each. I switch between Serious and Anime because if they have the option to introduce to a stranger as ~TuTuRu Ero-chan Desuuu Nya Nya~ how am I not going to take it?
So Ero-Chan is on her way to meet her date (and all of the relationship stuff is decided as you go forward!) two Ultraman suddenly appear and are fighting each other. I run around them. Then one turns into a monster and my hands start glowing purple. I hide but accidentally come across some Yakuza deal with a suitcase of money. Erochan manages to run into a subway station and meet with Yuki.
They get on the working trains and are riding while people around them go “is this monster attack even real?” The train suddenly stops and attacked by I guess Starship Troopers Bugs? We run to the next station which is covered in tentacles. A little girl is searching for hamburgers. I have to solve one Survival Horror style puzzle. Erochan and Yuki run to the surface for the police to be overrun by the bugs. One of police ushers you into a 2008 Subaru Impreza (no spoiler).
- Thank You Mister Policeman. Im Sorry
-You Idiot get in here too
-lewd gester Suckerrrrr
We drive off. The police man is definitely dead. As we drive across Rainbow Bridge we start getting rearended in gameplay. I thought this was just the game being like chaos as Mothra flies overhead. You pull to a stop because of an overturned 18 wheeler. Right behind us the rearenders reveal themselves
- I don’t recognize those people
-Huh? Those guys with the suitcase.
- Yuki We Need To Run Now!
The Yakuza get stopped by another Yakuza guy that I am almost certain was voiced by Kiryu. There is a Yakuza scene for three minutes while Mothra blows up stuff in the background.
Escaping the Yakuza our heroines meet a couple on their way to meet her father to announce their engagement. The man tells us he is a game developer and the father shouldn’t worry because it is just a normal office job. It looks like they won’t make it because the bridge is closed. He hands us a copy of his game a play on Raw Danger’s name. We end up stealing a Harley as the crowd goes from Save US Too to “No we should cheer them on, they’ll bring help!”
We take the Harley over the ramp and race across the rest of the bridge which collapses into the ocean behind you. I felt terrible.
Stop there for now. When the bugs attack the police the framerate dropped into 4-5fps and I thought my console was going to hardlock. It ruled. Very early on I ran into some fire and rolled out of it and it burned my jacket off. There has been serious degradation of my remaining shirt. Not 3rd Birthday levels thankfully but maybe it gets that far. Everyone in cutscenes is in normal clothes and I am in rags.
