  3. Congrats on The Surge! I never heard of this one before you played it, but it sounds fun. Too bad the story is bland because I love sci-fi.

    Platinum #81 - Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

    Total Playtime: 70:47:07

    Difficulty: 6/10

    Enjoyment: 5/10

     

    This is the most lewd game I've ever played. I'm quite anti-censorship and even I think this should have been rated 18+. IIRC, Valkyrie Drive is made by the same team as the Senran Kagura games and it shows. The gameplay is similar to (but deeper than) the Senran Kagura games and the same mechanic of the ladies' clothes getting torn as they take damage is present here too.

     

    Valkyrie Drive is a musou game with a homing mechanic that will be necessary to master for the only hard thing in the game - Challenge Mode (more on that later). You play as two characters at a time. The "liberator" is the character that you control, and the "extar" is a support character that gets absorbed into your weapon to increase your stats. There are 4 stages of absorption called "drive," and they are activated by the two characters performing increasingly lewd acts on each other. Two of the characters are sisters.

     

    The boss battles in this game are really fun and can be quite intense if you play on hard mode. However, there are no difficulty-specific trophies for Story Mode, so you can play on easy mode if you want. Unfortunately, I found the stages in this game to be way too long - especially in the last few missions. This made the game feel very repetitive because there is no challenge in the multiple waves of enemies that you have to fight; they are just there to pad the game until you can fight the boss of that stage.

     

    The game is also very glitchy, but in an annoying way rather than a game-breaking way. The glitch that I encountered the most was that an enemy would spawn and be both invisible and invincible, and I would have to pause, then unpause the game to get it to appear and be damageable. I have heard that a lot of people experienced a lot of crashes with this game, but I only experienced one crash playing on the latest version.

     

    On a more positive note, the story is solid. Most ecchi games have a very lighthearted and/or bare-bones story but that wasn't the case with Valkyrie Drive. The plot is unique, the story is very dark and serious, the characters were well-written, and there is a lot of character development. At the same time, there is a lot of comic relief in the extremely high amount of lewd content. Of all the ecchi games that I played, this one had the best story by far.

     

    There is also a Challenge Mode and a Survival Mode. Survival is just clearing several waves of enemies with a boss fight for every 10th wave. It's boring and easy. Challenge Mode on the other hand was, well, challenging. It's similar to Trial Modes and Mission Modes that you see in fighting games where you have to fight under certain conditions or achieve certain combos. Most of these weren't hard but there are two hard superboss fights, and one of them is responsible for the 6/10 difficulty score in this otherwise easy game. The difficulty comes from the balancing; it's one of those situations where your attacks do very little damage, but the boss can kill you with very few hits. Shoutout to @ShonenCat for giving me tips for this mode!

     

    From a non-trophy perspective, I would give the game a 7/10. Though the story was great and the boss battles were fun, the stages were so repetitive that I can't rate it any higher. Trophy-wise however, this is one of the most tedious games that I've ever played.

     

    There is a trophy for getting 5 million EXP across all of your characters. It takes about half of this amount to max out all of your characters, so this was such a pointless grind. To add insult to injury, you don't get any EXP in Challenge Mode or Survival Mode. There are other grind-related trophies too but they aren't worth mentioning because most of them come naturally while working on this trophy. I had to repeat the same boss fight almost 200 times to get this trophy. There is also an RNG-based trophy where you use something similar to a slot machine and have to collect 100 different items from this machine. On top of all of that shit, there are three different types of collectables scattered across most of the stages. More than half of my total playtime was spent trying to get these trophies.

     

    I would recommend this game only if you don't plan to go for the platinum. But since everyone reading this is a trophy hunter, I would not recommend this game.

      Thanks guys!
       

      @FreshFromThaDeli I definitely enjoyed it before the grinding, but not enough to make the grind worth it. If you don't like musou, you should definitely stay away from this one as it's pure musou. From what I read in your Valkyria reviews, this game isn't similar at all.

       

      @Flubberwunked It's sad indeed. A lot of good games have awful platinums and this is one of them. The grinding was so severe that I became numb to the fanservice lol.

      Congrats on the platinum, Yuber. Glad to see you managed to overcome the grind on this one. :D

       

      I gotta say, I'm very interested in playing this game. Besides the ecchi/lewd aspect that's always enjoyable, the musou combat and interesting storyline make me think I'm up for a great time on this one. If it's done by the same developers I'm sure it's going to be a damn fine time. It sounds like a very solid game that's married to some annoying trophies, though, that's for sure. Just looking at the 70 hours completion makes me think, "Oh god..." in terms of the grindiness inside it. But still, it should be well worth it. These are types of games that make a Vita worth owning.

       

      Thanks for the excellent review of it. ;)

      @Honor_Hand Thanks! I wouldn't recommend it, honestly. The story is good, but not good enough to make the grind worth it, especially when this game has an anime you could watch instead. Even though the boss fights are legitimately fun, the levels are way too long and repetitive (and I like musou games). The lewdness is S-tier, but the grinding will make you numb to it. xD

       

      If you do still decide to play, make sure you upgrade to the latest version or you'll have a lot of problems with crashing and infinite loading screens.

  9. Bomberman Ultra is done! I have no idea why this is UR. It's short, easy, and boostable. This was disappointing, but I managed to be the second fastest achiever so I'm happy about that at least. 1. Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe (3.88%) - 100% 2. Dragon Ball FighterZ (2.69%) - 38% 3. Digimon All-Star Rumble (2.89%) - 0% 4. Battle Fantasia (0.61%) - 18% 5. Bomberman Ultra (3.70%; no plat) - 100%
  10. This is cool; thanks for doing this. I'm in. For the pink and/or orange requirement how much pink/orange has to be in the thumbnail for it to count? This one for example has very little orange (Bomberman Ultra). Would it count? EDIT: I just finished the game, so it won't be used this event after all. I'd still like to know for future reference though. Also for the below games: would the left count for either colour, and would the V in the right count for pink? I honestly can't tell lol.
  11. @Copanele Thanks man! If you're not afraid of a massive grind, Arcana Heart 3 Love Max has very similar gameplay, difficulty, and a similar mission mode (trial mode). I can't recommend it because of how bad the grind was, but I figured it was worth mentioning.
  12. @Honor_Hand Thanks dude! The fanservice and gameplay are solid for sure. I think you'd enjoy the game and Survival Mode is definitely doable with practice. And I agree with you on Rui being best girl - not just in Chaos Code but in all of the Arcsys fighters I've played so far lol. Going to take a short break and then come back with either Dragon Ball FighterZ or Battle Fantasia. Likely DBZ first so that I can gradually step up in difficulty.
  13. Chaos Code is done! 1. Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe (3.88%) - 100% 2. Dragon Ball FighterZ (2.69%) - 38% 3. Digimon All-Star Rumble (2.89%) - 0% 4. Battle Fantasia (0.61%) - 18% 5. Bomberman Ultra (3.70%; no plat) - 0% EDIT: I'd like to swap Guilty Gear XX Λ Core Plus R for Bomberman Ultra.
  14. Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe Rarity: 3.98% Difficulty: 7/10 Enjoyment: 7/10 Total Playtime: 27:30 First of all, props to the developers for adding an in-game playtime counter that's visible to the player. All games should do this in my opinion. I enjoyed this game a lot more than I thought I would considering how simplistic it looked. Though the mechanics are not deep, it's fast-paced and has challenging single-player content. From a non-trophy perspective (and only from a non-trophy perspective), this game is very welcoming to newcomers to the genre as the amount of time given to input commands is quite generous. There is no tutorial mode which usually upsets me in a fighting game, but it was acceptable here due to simple nature of the game. There was a story, but I don't like the way that it was presented. There is no voice acting in anything outside of battle, which I think is unacceptable for a PS3 game (this is an enhanced version of a PS3 game if I understand correctly). The "prologue" was a few paragraphs that you had to read in the options menu. Instead of a Story Mode, each character has a very brief introduction given when you start Arcade Mode with them, and 2 different endings that you can either get through Arcade Mode or buy with in-game currency. This felt like the story of a non-Arcsys fighter; generic, predictable, and no character development. A couple of things that did make this feel like an Arcsys fighter story were the fanservice and the humor. This game has the best looking cast I've seen in an Arcsys fighter so far, and it also made me laugh a couple of times. Mechanically, this game is extremely similar to Street Fighter Alpha 3. Survival Mode challenged me quite a bit, and so did a couple of the missions. I had fun with those two modes, but I would have preferred combo challenges over missions. Overall, this is a decent game. It's no masterpiece but it's both fun and challenging. I would gladly play a sequel to this. High-tier fanservice in this game for men of culture. This game managed to make me laugh out loud a couple of times.
  15. Congrats on the plat! I suck at platformers too so I'm impressed. You make the game sound pretty interesting, but I'll probably stay away from this one lol.
