To both of you, the character design is actually based off the manga/anime with the same design - so if you want to hate it because of that, talk to the Mangaka.
Actually, Black Rock is based on a music video ^.^ then adapted to other media.
Actually...I think it was just an illustration at first. And then an MV and so forth. At least that's what Wiki says.
This. It was done as a few short illustrations then converted into an MV. it was then developed further by the origional illustrator and then converted further into an anime. Now it is a video game. Progress and evolution.
Also, wholly heck Wikipedia actually correct. =O

Mikau - But Etna wears bugger all as well. Your logic confuses me.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, was it the origional illustrator that continued it? I'm actually not that sure if it was somebody else or not.

Mastix could you illustrate these peasants on black rock shooter?
A) The game is abso-*bleep*ing-lutely NOTHING like the anime. The anime is cute girls and some other world. The game is APOCALYPSE HAS HAPPENED, TOUGH SHIT, DEAL WITH IT.

B) I'm pretty sure he didn't even watch the terrid anime.

Come on, it wasn't that bad. The animation and fights were among the best I've ever seen in anime and it had that nice little plot twist at the end. Also, I enjoyed watching those girls completely lose their shit. XD

That's like, the absolute last person who'd know about this.

Let me inform everyone:

Black Rock Shooter is some angsty girl who just grumps around all day and all night pretending her and anything she is in is cool which having as much depth to her personality as her chest.
This description applies to all variations of Black Rock Shooter including this one, hell, ESPECIALLY this one.

Etna is a special case. She's a succubus-styled character, so it wouldn't make sense for her to wear more cloths. But in Black Rock Shooter's case, the main protagonist has no reason to be so scantly clad.

Cleared some trash, if somebody's being disruptive please don't bother responding, just ignore and move on, report it if that makes sense in the situation.

Anime did have some pretty nice fight scenes. Didn't think it was terrible, but I guess calling it really good is also a bit of a stretch. Either way, over-sexualization was not a reason why it didn't hold up. To an extent all the hype from such a popular source material probably doomed it from the start.
If you can't get past "Oh my god, sometimes people draw characters that show skin", you won't last much longer before going insane. Women equality is not some giant bat to bash in anything remotely acknowledging of gender, those who can't understand that, will overstretch and misinterpret what equality actually is. Something that will do more harm to the movement than good.

On to the actual game;
The black and blue character color scheme with a eye that's on literally on fire with determination is different in an interesting way. Trailer for the game, again, shows a huge focus on color, and keeping an aesthetic. Tons of orange, blue's compliment. Artistically, just all looks really cool. Might favorite it on youtube just because it's really nice to look at.

The gameplay is...ehhhh. Saw some gameplay from the first couple missions, the battles are a kind of (recent) final fantasy setup. Few enemies, you can move around and do whatever in the combat area, you know the drill. But the battles themselves looked so...easy, trash mobs could be dispatched without ever moving or doing anything but primary shoot, bosses seemed to require some dodging, but not anything that felt fluid or active, just looked like farming. It could be the game picks up later, or who I saw was overleveled/really good in some way or something, but from what I've seen, I won't be lamenting not having a PSP. If it was more active, kind of like the gameplay for MGS Revengance or Bayonetta perhaps, I'd be more interested. Fight scenes that actually captured a kind of fast and agile, active combat scenario, would be been pretty cool. Even Resonance of Fate is more agile than what I've seen of the BRS game, which is saying something, because RoF is turn-based.

Mikau Kahn - I suppose that makes sense.

Lorx - That just made me want to play Resonance of Fate again.

Nope. It's coming out in Germany and the UK and various other EU countries. Something about licensing issues apparantly. Bit of a shame because it's not coming out in NZ either (for my PSP), but my Vita account is Canadian from when I lived there. So basically, I well and truly miss out. My ex got the Japanese collectors edition when it came out and I was looking forward to grabbing it in English. Sigh.

So....can anyone recommend I buy this? I might need a few "expert" opinions before doing so. Kind of a newbie here at Neoseeker. Much appreciated!
