It's every bit as weeaboo titty anime as it looks. It's your basic dungeon crawler RPG but ecchi af. If you thought the fan service in Hyperdimension Neptunia or Onechanbara was bad, you ain't seen nothin' yet. For most, I realize that would probably be a turn off, but for me, it's just great. The basic plot of the game is pretty thin - the world is split between humans and monster girls, and the monster girls have randomly started going crazy and attacking humans except for the monster girls in your town. You, along with your monster girl childhood friend, set off on this quest to find out why the monster girls are going crazy and save the world by finding magic panties. I'm not kidding, your quest is seriously to find magic panties. It's fantastic.

Image

It's a little bit like Shin Megami Tensei in that when you encounter monster girls throughout the games six dungeons (roughly five or six monster girls per dungeon), you fight them and attack each article of clothing until they're stripped down to their panties. Then you enter the "Bumping Scratch" minigame. It's basically "molest the monster girls until they come to their sense." This minigame has three phases, and in each phase, there are two "weak spots" on the girls that you either rub, tab, or pinch. When you hit both weak spots enough, you'll activate "Nude*Flash" where you basically jack your Vita off for a brief period of time to get your meter filled higher. When the meter maxes out, you win, the monster girl regains her sense, and she's added to your party.

Image


The actual dungeon crawling is from a first person perspective (think the original Phantasy Star on Master System). From an objective perspective, it's a really "okay" game. The only area in which it stands out is for us ecchi pervs. Then it's a gift from the heavens. There are two versions - the Japanese only version and the Asian version. Since I don't read or speak Japanese, I have the latter. The Asian version retains the Japanese dialogue, but you have the option of having the menus and subtitles in either English or Chinese. Be aware, though, that the game can be rather pricey. I got lucky and snagged a copy for $35 when Play-Asia was having a sale, and that's the best place to get it (right now, they've got copies for $40) as eBay seems to have it for everywhere from $50 to $100 depending on when you happen to look.

If you're a weeby perv like me, this is one of the greatest games on the Vita. If you're a respectable person with sophisticated (or even moderately mature) tastes, you should probably pass on this one.

Exhuminator, if you're not familiar with this one, consider this my strong recommendation.

@EikenFencer
Have you played Dungeon Travellers 2? I'm kind of curious how similar they are since Moe Chronicle sounds kind of similar but somehow even more pervy lol (and I don't mean that in a bad way since it doesn't bother me lol)

3/19: Sonic Generations (3DS)
3/22: Sonic Colors (Wii)

I finally beat Sonic Colors. Seriously, I have started, stopped, sold, bought this game about half a dozen times. It's an uneven game, to be sure. If the game were half as long and only comprised of the behind-the-Hedgehog sections, it'd be one of the greatest titles of all times. The platforming sections are a hodgepodge of brilliant moments contrasted with boredom. The boss fights, likewise, are confused. How you can have the greatest boss fights of all time interspersed with bosses that are finished before you figure out they have a pattern is beyond me.

At a minimum, Sonic Colors deserves praise for having a solid story and surprisingly funny script. Baldy McNoseHair, indeed.
The PSTV is amazing.

It's DOOM, what more do I have to say?

Shovel Knight, IMO, is great. It has the right balance between old school and modern, and if it isn't old school enough, you can break the check points and help that hurt, if you catch my meaning. 9/10, easy.

Far Cry 3... ahh, this one. It's a good game- I just had yet to sit down and really get into it, y'know? Since it was a pretty straightforward thing, I went ahead and got the plat for shits and gigs. This is one I'll probably keep for a bit, but will eventually sell when I have a "holy shit I have a ton of games here I don't want to play" moment. 8/10, might be less depending on personal preferences. Love the idea behind the story, even if the implementation is a bit more flat than you might hope.

Well, well, well. I finally figured the Joker out, and how to consistently beat him. Thankfully, you have unlimited continues, and the last area isn't too terribly hard if you've got the wall jump mechanics down.

Really, back in the day, it was sheer luck and a flurry of Batarangs that would see the victory, and that was one of those "1-20" tries deals. And I might have been using a Game Genie, I really can't remember, and I might have abused save states years back. Given the unlimited continues, it's probably not a big deal, but hey. Legit is good.

As it turns out, just plain ol' fisticuffs works best. Punch on him, make sure to stay close enough that his big shot misses, and to dodge the lightning bolts, you need to just barely inch back a bit. It's a really tight window, but better to be hit by the bolts than the main blast, that takes a whopping three health off. Also, make sure to punch him as he changes sides, if he's glowing when he runs through you, it won't hurt. Chances are you'll need to close ground fast, so you actually need to perform a really accurate jump-in instead of just walking up to him to continue your assault, because there's a chance he'll shoot you. Just keep it up and play defensively, and you'll win the battle. I got it to where if I was on-point, I could take him 3 out of 4 tries.

And yes, playing through this popped in my mind from the last game I played, as well as seeing Kat Bailey over at USGamer doing a live stream. I wish I coulda helped her on that Stage 2 boss! If you've got enough life, best to just get in front of the turret at the end (but not too close), and wail away. Turns out fists solve most problems in this game. :)

Metal Warriors is better in every single way. It has better graphics, better story, better presentation of the story, a wide variety of mechs and the interesting gameplay of jumping out to accomplish tasks or commandeer mechs, and far more interesting maps. And it's also far more difficult.

That said, Cybernator is still quite fun. It's pretty short (took me about 20-25 minutes to get through the whole game) but it does take some time to master the controls; in particular the dashing coupled with the shooting angles to nail enemies. The game does have some decent weapon variety. You start off with a standard vulcan and a fist weapon and can pick up limited use missiles and a laser weapon in later stages (plus the hidden napalm which invalidates the existence of all the others if you get it). Each weapon starts at level one and can be upgraded to level three through the collection of power chips scattered throughout the stages. Each weapon requires a different number of chips for each level, with the vulcan requiring the most (being your bread and butter).

The missions are mostly a case of getting from one end to the other blasting everything in your way. The actual layouts are unfortunately not too interesting. There's a little bit of platforming and some choose the path through an area but not to the degree a Sonic game has. The focus is definitely on the combat. Then the final level has this really weird curve. You start with having to go through two screens of enemies that deal a ton of damage and can usually get a shot off before you can kill them, so unless you go super slow and steady with the shield you're basically trying to get to the next screen before you die (I was able to get through the two screens with almost no health left with some good jumping). Then you fight a boss who's not too difficult, then there's a mad dash through a corridor that is surprisingly hard to control with a boss who chases you near the end until you get to the bottom. This boss actually has some major blind spots at the bottom, so all you need to do is survive and you're guaranteed to beat him. Then you face the final boss which is large but quite anticlimactic if you've remembered that the hold aim button is a thing.

I like the game's genre, it's just there's better examples.

Are there any hard assed NES platformers left you haven't finished yet? (I mean aside from the Battle Kid series.)
MrPopo wrote:Metal Warriors is better in every single way.

This is one of those times where I just couldn't disagree with you more. I'll concede Metal Warriors is more difficult. And also, Metal Warrior's multiplayer versus mode is awesome, but the single player experience pales against Cybernator, or rather Assault Suits Valken. That's not to say Metal Warriors isn't worth playing, it's still a fun mech action experience for sure.

I agree with this. Front Mission: Gun Hazard is the gold standard. There are other better entries like Ranger X, Target Earth, and Aquales which overshadow Cybernator. Target Earth in particular is hella challenging IMO.

I'm sure there are, but I'm running out of the good ones. :( In retrospect, I don't think I've ever finished any of the early Adventure Island games, and I've heard the first game is pretty brutal. Adventure Island 4 is a different beast entirely.

I dunno, if folks want to start throwing suggestions out there, I'm all ears. :)
