The only answer is that apparently in Japan that sort of stuff is not a big deal.

Neither should it be here.

I love the look of the game. Meh.

#5 Posted by Demoskinos (13869 posts) -

I'm debating on buying it for the PS3. I'll see if I'm going to pull the trigger on that soon.

Not a big deal here either, and I'm just in a tiny country in Europe.

Edit: Then again we were the first country to legalize Porn, so I guess that's telling.
Not a whole lot of things makes us uncomfortable really.

its from the same people that made oden sphere..

You"ll see the similarities, both games had weird and unique designs. Though oden sphere got pretty hard..

Shame it's not crossbuy. I'd not hesitate for a second if it was. It is crossplay however.

The art style as a whole is nice.

But some of the character designs are just overly blatant.

Still love it.

Big Boobs are not sexist....

#12 Posted by TAFAE (150 posts) -

I think that the art style is pretty cool and distinctive (just like George Kamitani's other games), it's just a handful of the character designs that are off-putting in a "this is why it's embarrassing to play and talk about video games" kind of way. Also, I don't think you should be afraid of posting game art here, you can pretty easily see the characters in question by visiting the game's main wiki page.

#13 Edited by Itwongo (787 posts) -

@darji: there's more to character design than boobs. And I never mentioned sexism. Also, after a quick Google search, I appear to have used "tact" incorrectly. Too lazy to replace it now. Nah, let's try... blatant?

If its really embarrassing to play for you then do not play it. This game was not made for a wider audience it was made for nerds and fans.

#15 Edited by Glottery (910 posts) -

Yeah, not sexist, but pretty embarrassing looking at least. Besides, won't boobs of that size already become a problem when you're trying to fight?

#16 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (2597 posts) -

Its a unique artstyle, I believe Odin Sphere and Muramasa did it before.

I really never get that why is absolute and totally brutal violence totally fine in America and any even slight serialized stuff not? For people really concerned about other people opinion you guys should also be embarresed to play really violent games. Are you?

Its gorgrous isnt it :D Eat that mysoginimaniacalfeministic cry babies.....

but here's the thing; if the proportions weren't so fucking silly, than more people would agree!

4/6 of the characters are fine, after all (the three guys and then the... archer chick or whatever).

But every character has these extravagant proportions. There is nothing wrong with it it is called art. Just like you see very strange art and proportions in museums as well.

Even crazier, some of those big breasted ladies have naturally big boobs.
Crazy world we live in. Heaven forbid they ever show up in an interview on TV. All TVs would have to be destroyed.

#22 Posted by Itwongo (787 posts) -

@darji: hey, man, I'm saying the character design could be more interesting than just boobs. It's lazy.

#23 Posted by Coafi (1433 posts) -

I actually like the art style, it's just not my type of game. The character designs are whole other story...

I think they are pretty interesting. Maybe not the Sorceress but it fits the style of the game. But you are not really the one who was embarrassed about this design. If you find it lazy its totally fine if you find it embarrassing or even more it is not.

But again we people in Europe react differently about nudity and sexualized media^

#25 Posted by Fredchuckdave (4482 posts) -

Ridiculous fanservice, happens in a hell of a lot of games though I guess it's more frequent in Japanese than otherwise.

yes some ladies have big boobs naturally!

not that big though, and especially not one that's trying to fight... whatever they're fighting.

#27 Posted by Flappy (2034 posts) -

That's hella anime, cuh. At least they aren't half-naked Lolis, riiiiight?

#28 Edited by Darji (5295 posts) -

@animasta: That is why it called fantasy game ant not real life. The other Characters would also not really possible in real life. They will not fight some Cops or Robbers or fight against some speeding tickets. As for your Boob Comment. I am pretty sure such woman exist. Maybe they do not have such a figure but natural boobs can get very big.

Says who? I've seen woman with natural boobs that would blow your mind at how ridiculously large they are. Like RIDICULOUSLY. And who's to say they can't be fighters. I mean yeah, it makes sense since the back pain and what not, but who are you to say who can and cannot fight based on boob size.

#30 Posted by HerbieBug (3844 posts) -

All of the character designs in the game are ridiculously proportioned. I find it strange people seem specifically caught up only with the mammaries.

#31 Posted by GunstarRed (4733 posts) -

I think it looks gorgeous.

#32 Posted by AlexanderSheen (4671 posts) -

While it is not offensive, I still think it looks bad.

If you say so...

#33 Posted by Svenzon (699 posts) -

From what I've seen so far the art looks like a mixed bag. Love the background art and most enemy designs, but the player characters look weird as fuck.

#34 Posted by davidwitten22 (1703 posts) -

It's an "art style"

I read your comment quoted by another user without reading your name on it and I instantly knew it was yours. I should have known better.

#36 Edited by Darji (5295 posts) -

@davidwitten22: Ok one thing. Boobs are not equal with a Penis. If you even try to argue with that you are already clueless and not even worth talking to.

Vagina equals Penis. Boobs do not.

#37 Posted by Milkman (16228 posts) -

It's pretty embarrassing and makes an already uninteresting looking game more uninteresting.

#38 Posted by Aetheldod (3342 posts) -

@joeyravn: Looks like im gettin a rep , finally :D (its the emoticons aint it?)

#39 Posted by Legion_ (1208 posts) -

I'd buy this game, but it would be to hard to play with one hand.

#40 Posted by Turkalurch (197 posts) -

@davidwitten22: I would totally play that warrior. As long as testosterone directly affects the Strength attribute.

#41 Posted by StarvingGamer (7565 posts) -

Kamitani is awesome

#42 Posted by GorillaMoPena (1687 posts) -

I only agree with it if a main point for that lady's plot is that she struggles with constant back problems

#43 Posted by GnaTSoL (778 posts) -

@milkman: Killing ain't embarrassing either.... Right? Its all good.

@davidwitten22: Are those comics meant to be funny? Where's the punchline, let alone the joke?

@gnatsol: Yeah, I love murder. Not sure how that's related though.

#48 Edited by Dallas_Raines (2048 posts) -

Those monsterous boobs also have ridiculous physics attached to them. I don't find it sexy or funny, the rate that those flesh balloons flop around mid spell is bordering on disturbing.

#49 Posted by Reisz (1359 posts) -

Apparently this is a really big deal. I have always kind of thought Vanillaware's stuff looked like this. There were some pretty outrageous bosses in Muramasa, and that was aimed at a younger audience than this.

It's appealing, I'm not gonna lie. I kind of love the whole thing though. That Dwarf is RIDICULOUS.

I know for a fact that if it wasn't Japanese I would have a far harder time with it. I just can't tell if that says more about me or Western culture.

#50 Posted by psylah (2153 posts) -

George Kamitani's art style is godlike. The best 2D artsyle games have to offer.

All others should hang their heads in shame.
