  1. If you also want to read or watch Girls' Last Tour, you should also read the manga Shimeji Simulation, which is the complete opposite of GLT.

      Shimeji Simulation is not as melancholic as GLT, hence the word "exact opposite". It pretty much takes place in a school setting, but it has elements of surrealism, much to the likes of Girls' Last Tour.

      I see. So, a bit familiar with other works from the same author but at the same time going in a different direction.

      Yeah. From what I can tell from his GLT manga, he seems to be fond of surrealism. GLT is extremely surreal enough to be considered a post-ap & slice-of-life manga.

  2. Girls' Last Tour Vol. 6

    Manga Finished: Girls' Last Tour

     

    WRITE-UP

     

    This story is something you would not expect when you see a show, a game, or a book that has post-apocalyptic themes into it like the Walking Dead, STALKER, or even the Metro series.

     

    Rather, Girls' Last Tour's main flavour is a juxtaposition of two diametrically opposite genres: science fiction and slice-of-life, which are then coalesced into a single parfait of a story.

     

    Now you would think these two elements are incompatible, in terms of their respective elements, but GLT's author managed to perfect this very art of juxtaposition and brings a post-apocalyptic tale that completely separates from most stories with post-apocalyptic themes. Instead, GLT does not focus with the common themes of a post-apocalyptic fiction in any medium, which often includes bloodshed and constant war for resources. However, GLT still has one post-apocalyptic formula that is within place: survival for resources.

     

    In terms of how post-apocalypse is portrayed, Girls' Last Tour is not the case.

     

    The main premise revolves around two female characters, Chito and Yuuri, as they travel around the wastelands of a forgotten civilization within their Kettenkrad. As mentioned earlier, the emphasis of GLT's story is not about constant war for survival as the central plot. Rather, the central plot is about two girls who travel across the ruins of human civilization within their vehicle, in hopes of encountering survivors during their "last tour", which is where the slice-of-life part comes into play.

     

  3. Platinum 9: Deadbolt

    :platinum: Conquest
    Earn every trophy.

    1.48%, Ultra Rare

     

    It's within the realms of Hotline Miami, albeit with zombies, skeletons, vampires, and demons. If you played this game on PC before, you will know that you CANNOT get the Conquest achievement easily, because getting that requires you to obtain the highly missable :gold: Death and :gold: Famine achievements, which is beating the game without dying and within 1 hour without quitting, respectively, in a single save file. Thankfully, you can get :platinum: Conquest on the PS4/Vita versions of the game, regardless of what save file you play with.

     

    Luckily, on Death achievement, there is a manageable exploit that makes Death trophy easy, which is quitting the game before you will be respawned upon death. Other than the two highly missable trophies above, none of the trophies are missable and can be done via chapter select. However, :gold: War requires you to five star all 27 missions the game has to offer, which is extremely dependent on your headshot accuracy, time taken, and weapon accuracy, and it is reflected from the weapons you use.

     

    However, with that being said, the Platinum trophy difficulty is set to 9/10, because of Death and Famine, which requires skill and luck, and lots of practice.

      Awesome Platinum trophy and excellent write-up. 👍

       

      This looks like an interesting game to play but I'm not sure if my skills would be up to the task, haha. That being said, even with that exploit it still looks pretty damn hard. Good thing there's at least some level of cheese that can be used to make things slightly easier.

      I played this game on PC many times, and it's actually even harder, because you cannot get Conquest achievement without both Death and Famine achievements.
       

      The PS4/Vita port is slightly buggy, in terms of aiming controls, that getting used to it can be a real hassle. Death is easy to cheese with the quit exploit, but Famine requires you to be attentive on the timer, since time still moves, despite the game being paused.

       

      What makes the game's trophies also hard, besides a no-death run and speedrun, is getting 5-Star on every 27 missions. As mentioned on the write-up, it is extremely dependent on accuracy, headshot count, and time taken. Some missions can be hard to get 5-Star, and it does require a lot of skill. For accuracy, shotguns can wreck your accuracy percentage, so it is suggested to use pistols.

       

      The game is also unforgiving with ammunition, since once you run out of bullets on a particular weapon, there is no such thing as an ammunition refill, and that is it. Only way to remedy it is to look for another weapon.

      @test-dummy-99 "A waifu booze simulator", or something like that, isn't it? xxD Yeah, I've heard plenty about it. I really want to try it at some point since I have heard so many great comments about it. Seems like I'd feel right at home playing it. xP

      It's a waifu booze simulator with a pinch of a visual novel. I'm currently going for the platinum for the Vita version of the game. And yes, both PS4 and Vita versions do not stack, and cannot be cross-buy. You have to buy the Vita and PS4 version separately. Plus, they have the same trophies, but the grading of some trophies on both versions of VA-11 HALL-A is different.

      Not really fun, in honesty, especially in the first few parts of the game. :P

       

      Dodging seems to be the best weapon you have when you do Apocalyptic difficulty, especially with the bosses, since they can annihilate you. :P Fucking Gluttony, though. xD His attacks on the first phase was enough to deal a lot of damage. During the entire game, I focused much on upgrading my Physical Damage and Health, with the former being focused upon, amd upgrading some of my weapons, as well.
