    Bought!

    Can’t wait till I get my LE shipped, also getting a 4 poster set from my importer

  • Eclipse

    I just love Harler’s design <3

    It's still a bit hard to believe that this is Yuigahama Yui's VA…

    • Budgiecat

      Its the exposed boobs isnt it

      • bloodiOS

        I like her short black hair, smooth skin and exposed belly button more.

        • McPoo

          I’m sure it wasn’t meant this way, but that sounded rate creepy.

          • bloodiOS

            Actually, that was my intention.

            • McPoo

              In that case I can only apologise.

      • Eclipse

        No, I like her sleek looking outfit. :P

    • McPoo

      Do you not find it quite generic?

      • LordKaiser

        She don’t have any beauty marks or moles so nah!

        • DarthBrian

          Not visible anyway. <3

      • Sevyne

        Hey, sometimes less is more. I kind of like it for not being overly ridiculous.

      • Eclipse

        You definitely don’t know what generic means….

        • McPoo

          How so?

          She looks like your bog standard ambiguously aged, over sexualised female Japanese character. Including a skimpy outfit and an adventurers belt to show she’s ready for the quest!

          • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

            What is ‘not generic’ by your standards?

            • McPoo

              Just off the top of my head, as I’ve been playing a lot of it – Trevor from GTA V.

              He’s ugly, unkempt and looks like psychopath he is.

              He doesn’t look like your standard Nathan Drake style character, not that there’s anything wrong with that, as I do like Drake, I just wouldn’t call him a very original character.

              • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                Lynch from Kane & Lynch, Brick from Borderlands, Max Payne are ones from the top of my head for now…

                Been there, done that… Every GTA protagonists I played are psychopaths no matter how I look at them…. Most male characters I played are either serious or just plain while Nathan cracks a smile or two with a does of personality whenever he has the chance to…. Not to say, most protagonists don’t have a personality, Nathan Drake is more memorable because of he is who he is….

                • McPoo

                  Yeah Lynch is a good shout actually, I completely forgot about him. Brick I wouldn’t really class the same – he’s obviously in good physical shape, he’s more of a big bruiser, as opposed to a flabby, wasting meth addict. Max Payne I think is more in the middle, he’s obviously grizzled, but is he considered ugly and out of shape? I’m genuinely not sure.

                  Yeah I agree Drake has a fantastic personality, I do really like him. From a visual standpoint though, he’s very much an Indiana Jones or Lara Croft, isn’t he? He’s traditionally good looking, dressed in stereotypiical adventurers clothes etc. I like his design, it’s just not overly original :)

                  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                    My point is that Trevor came after Lynch after some other character after some other character(Lynch isn’t the first one to appear)… So how is Trevor original? It was done before…. Does that count as generic?

                    What is ‘generic’ and what is ‘not generic’? No clear cut answer, it’s subjective… Say, most games I played that isn’t from Japan has male protagonists that are manly, serious, muscular and full of testosterone…. I would say “Oh… I see a game with a man holding a weapon… it’s one of those generic dudebro game most likely” whereas you might think that it’s not because this and that makes the game different than the others…. My reply would be like “What’s the difference? You get to kill stuff….”

                    That’s how I see it… You based it that it’s generic because that’s what you only see(artstyle, boobs,etc)…

                    • McPoo

                      I’d argue that the idea of something being ‘generic’ isn’t really subjective – to be generic you have to be typical of the genre.

                      Nathan Drake is a generic looking character, because he shares many traits with the characters that are considered genre defining for adventure media. Lara Croft, Indiana Jones and even characters like Allan Quatermain are always depicted as wearing the same style of clothing, they’re all classically good looking. That’s not to say they’re not interesting characters, they all are, but from a purely visual standing, they’re very similar. I suppose you could argue that as their genre defining, they’re beyond being ‘generic’ though, although i think Drake himself isn’t quite at their level yet.

                      Similarly, with many Japanese games, anime, and other media, the females are depicted as young looking, yet sexualised. I’m sure they’ve all got different personalities and characters and the like, but that doesn’t change the fact that that specific example of character design has become generic, as it’s typical of the style.

                    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                      Does ‘generic’ only applies to the said genre? I argue that ‘generic’ is related to how many times this person has seen the concept…. If a person sees Nathan Drake and never knew Lara and Jones, does that person think it’s generic? Does the younger generations(ex. Born in 2000s) know Lara and/or Jones? How are they going to know that it’s generic once you showed them Uncharted?

                      Nathan Drake wasn’t created to be original…. ND wanted Nathan to be relatable and what’s better way to do that than to be generic? We called his traits ‘generic’ because we know them, hence we know and relate to these characters…. If you’re gonna give a character an alien trait, chances are it’ll be closer onto the uncanny valley(ex. if you don’t give the character a human-like figure, it will look really weird) … How is Lara beyond being ‘generic’ when she herself was based on Jones?

                      The typical of the style? It’s like saying realism is generic…. We have seen advancement in 3D graphics and they all geared towards how realistic they look…

                  • Willgaea

                    Right on the money. Naugthy Dog character Drake was inspired from the Indiana movies.

          • Eclipse

            Again, you don’t seem to know what the term means.

            Based on your prudish reply, it’s obvious that you just don’t like her design, but that doesn’t mean it’s generic.

            • McPoo

              Would you like me to go through a bunch of popular Japanese games and pull out characters with the same design?

              • Eclipse

                Sure, go right ahead.

                Keep in mind that Tsunako’s art style is quite distinctive.

                • McPoo

                  How so?

                  Also, art style isn’t really relevant to character design here. If there’s 5 characters with big boobs and pre-teen faces, the fact one of them is drawn a bit differently doesn’t change the fact they’ve all got the same basic design.

                  • Eclipse

                    Alright, now that’s just pure ignorance.

                    Don’t even bother replying, because I’m not going to waste my time with you.

                    • McPoo

                      Why not? This character design is typical of many forms of Japanese media, making it generic. He can draw it anyway he wants, it’s not changing the fact it’s uninspired character design.

                      That said, and this is purely personal, it looks exactly the same as many other Japanese game characters to me, I really don’t see his distinctive art style.

            • McPoo

              Also, would you care to explain how I’m using generic wrong?

    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

      There is something I like about her design… It’s not the huge amount of skin exposure…. It’s something else….

      ‘Less ridiculous’ is the best words I can use to describe it…

      • LordKaiser

        The hair?

        • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

          Nah… I think it’s that she wears something else other than gothic/lolita outfits…

          or that she’s smexy in terms of looks…

    • fyi1191

      Sure doesn’t sound like her usual character voice. Pretty awesome.
      And this is

  • IndigoNovember

    Hmm, is that some Worm Smasher from Granzon I see there?

    http://youtu.be/Fh-FEvM1kw4?t=50s

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I take it she is supposed to be the sexy character.

    Her special gun attack thing looked pretty cool.

  • McPoo

    I just read the description. I know people who aren’t bothered about their appearance, to be honest, I’m not too fussed about mine that much any more. That said, I’ve never gone out of the house in just my boxers and a coat.

  • kirby755

    Well I like her character so far in every aspect. But I still want to see the hooded chick in action soon, I don’t know but she just got my attention more. Not that there is any problem with the others…. * Stares at strange cat with sword lodged in head*

  • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

    lol, While everything else stays completely still (or at least still enough), the only thing moving is this chick boobs. You can completely tell where the developers heads where at, I take it the only thing that will be moving these cut-scenes and talking segments are the girls boobs.

  • Cyril Murasakitsuyukusa

    LOL, she asks if anyone knows where are her panties))))

  • Kobracon

    Wow. This game has my attention now!

    inb4ItsTheBoobsIsn’tIt No its not just the boobs. I like that attack animation. is this for the Vita?

    • TheExile285

      I wish it was a PS3 and Vita multiplat but atm it is just PS3. I still hope it gets localized so I can buy it for PS3.

  • http://www.hush404.com hush404

    Boobs?

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      Boobs.

  • Bobby Jennings

    The fan service! o.0 I seriously liked her until they showed that part with her wearing no bra. Like cmon man…:(

    Still, game looks too much Hyperdimension Neptunia in terms of animation and such, but it still looks great. I might just import this.

    • Kobracon

      “She is a researcher absorbed in her work who doesn’t care about her appearance.”

      In case you thought they were kidding about that, the trailer kindly reminds you how much she really doesn’t care. Btw in that scene, she was saying “But its so hot….why do I have to wear clothes?!” basically.

      • Bobby Jennings

        I know, this is just my opinion of the trailer.

        • Kobracon

          Well when its a japanese budget game, they gotta use all the tricks in the bag to get attention.

          • Bobby Jennings

            true. i like the gameplay though. transformations are always a welcome in my book

            • Kobracon

              Indeed. That last attack was sick!

              • Bobby Jennings

                Yeah I know!

    • McPoo

      Sometimes Bobby, we are simply too engrossed in our own activities, whether that be work or leisure time, to assigns ourselves the bother of wearing clothes.

      I know for a fact that one day, I was so busy reading the latest issue of Bearded Gentlemen Bi-monthly (there was a particularly riveting article on the best beard beads available), that I’d actually walked out of the house stark bollock naked, with nothing on but a small towel that, while originally wrapped around my wet beard, had slid down onto the top of my back, making me look like a superhero whose cape had shrunk in the wash.

      What a day that was!

      • Kobracon

        Pics or it didn’t happen >:I

  • Willgaea

    She reminds me of my favorite character from Tales of Destiny. It’s Rutee :]
