The Beercast is back to hear Spike’s thoughts on the recent KitaCon, plus the usual discussion about the summer season of anime.
As usual, the beercast contains NSFW content.
I also noticed a correction while editing. For some reason during the Sakura Quest discussion, I mention the main character comes from New York. This is completely incorrect as she is living in Tokyo when she gets the job offer. Well done beer, you win again!
Just what!? All of them were just waiting to be exploded. Which I was wielding the Orgis, the rocket launcher, they got exploded.
Now this was sweet. A player who is rank 0, so probably only being playing for a few hours, joined a much higher level mission by mistake. But we all worked together and got through it just fine 🙂
I’ve been back on the Kuva fortress recently to farm for a new melee stance called Cyclone Kraken for Machetes (wont mention that the drop tables were broken, so it wasnt even possible to get for a few days) But dam sometimes the sense of depth is amazing
Will finally bite the bullet and type a little something about Warframe. It is a game that I have been playing for over two years now. So I’m at a point where I feel like I know enough to share some frame builds and riven set ups.
But for now I’ll post Warframe happenings. In game captures of moments and silly things I come across.
Sometimes noticing just how pretty the game can be. And yes I’m on Lua, thats right on the moon!
The title translates to This Art Club Has A Problem! Its a light comedy about the members of the art club at school. Usami (far left) is the only person in the club that takes it seriously, trying to improve her art. Subaru (second from left) is great at drawing but he is only interested in drawing the ultimate 2D moe girl. To make things worse for Usami, the club president (far right) just sleeps all the time and Collette (second from right) just turns up to make trouble. Add in Usami’s crush on Subaru and you have the basis for the series.
Out of all the shows I have written up so far, this has been the first that I have yet to finish (I have three episodes left to watch). Not because its bad, I just didn’t have the burning desire to make sure I was up to date with it. It’s not the sort of show where your going to be spoiled on the plot. The only significant thing that’s happened so far is a chuunibyou girl has turned up to rival Usami, but even that hasn’t gone anywhere yet. Maybe it all changes in the final few episodes.
For a light comedy, its fine. There are enough gags to make you not feel like your wasting your time, but not enough to make desperate for more.
Summer gave us not one, but two series of Danganronpa animes. There was the Future arc (characters above) that focused on the end portion of the overall story line and the Despair arc that focused on how it all began and was more of a prequel to the second Danganronpa game.
Danganronpa started out as a PSP game where you were trapped in a high school and the only way out is to kill another student and not be caught in the class trial. This was eventually localised and released on the Vita in the west. Since then, it has also been ported to Steam. The original anime covered the first games story but didn’t really do it justice. Not really a surprise when you try and cram a 20 hour game into a 6 hour anime. Luckily, the Danganronpa 3 anime covers new material.
The Future arc covers another killing game with the cast trying to identify a traitor amongst them while also trying to figure out and end to the wave of Despair. The Despair arc is centered around the cast of the second game and shows how they got to be friends while Hope’s Peak school slowly turns into chaos and despair. It’s an interesting approach to try and wrap up all the events of the games, even the characters from Ultra Despair Girls appear but it does falter slightly with the ending.
Danganronpa is all about the story so I’ve not really mentioned it much here. If you have played the games then its well worth watching to see where it goes. If you haven’t played the games then chances are you will be rather lost. Just be ready to hear the word zetsubou over and over again.
New Game is the story of Aoba, who goes to work for a video game company. Somehow she has landed this job, despite not knowing how to do anything the job requires. She spends the first few episodes learning from a book. But as with any cute girls doing cute things series, we are not here for the plot. Surrounding Aoba is a series of fairly normal people for this kind of show. Well there is her boss that likes to sleep without her trousers on and one person in the room that prefers to communicate via instant messages.
Its a nice romp through game development with the focus clearly on the personal relationships than any insight into game development. And because she isn’t in it enough, here is some Hajime.
