It's impossible to get a new shoot 'em up these days without getting registered into the sex offender database.

I would rather play aegis wings and watch porn then buy this game

@Doobie_Wop: Yes, GiantBomb refuses to play any game from Japan due to their immense hatred for the country.  The only exception are these weird anime games they make fun of. 
 
For the record, nobody thinks everyone in Japan loves this sort of thing.  That doesn't change the fact there's a huge Japanese influence and that it's very creepy and weird.  Don't think for a second the wouldn't also be making fun of a game playing up American stereotypes (Duke Nukem?).

@Doobie_Wop: You can hardly call Jeff a xenophobe when he's spent more money on obscure Japanese junk than many people have spent on video games in their entire lifetime. I mean, he's taken trips to Japan not just for work, but specifically so he could visit Akihabara and spend literrally thousands of dollars on arcade boards. Even if he has no interest in any of the porn that gets sold there, that still puts him in the same category as those that do as far as most people are concerned, and he's aware of that as evidenced by various statements he's made in his Jar Time vids. 
Maybe I'm just crazy, but this does not look like a man with intense hatred for Japanese people and their culture to me. I don't really get that vibe off of the other GB staffers either, but I can't neccesarily say the same about their fanbase.

@Doobie_Wop: your statements are bombastic and lack any history or context of who the giantbomb journalists are. Theres plenty of content to prove otherwise. Your statements are making huge generalizations about who they are. If you really still think this please state your case and show your abundance of evidence in the forums. You may get plently of hate and it may get locked but at least there might be something more than having to deal with a comments thread of a video

@Doobie_Wop: Right, when Jeff keeps buying these obscure Japanese games for his own benefit, when he visited Japan to buy all sorts of stuff you can only find there like arcade sticks and such, the 5 stars he gave Street Fighter IV, the fact that he listed Persona 4 as one of his all-time favorite games, yup. Jeff really hates Japanese culture.

Also, I believe Ryan has a pretty extensive knowledge of anime (the older ones from the 70s and 80s), likes a fair amount of crazy Japanese games (like the Incredible Crisis quick look) and the fact that he and Vinny know so much about the Dragonball universe just proves that Ryan also hates everything Japanese. Yup, you're right. The fact that they've surrounded themselves with some Japanese culture in their games means they're just using it as something to make fun off. Yeah, you really know the GB staff all too well.

For the sake of the GB staff and community, please, shut the fuck up.

Gotta love games that can only be described as... "Japanese." Good? Bad? Nope... it's Japanese.

I learned something about Vinny today...

Giant Bombs xenophobia strikes again! It's so Japanese, right guys!! YEAH!! This one game that will sell 40,000 units in a country populated by 90 million people is a perfect representation of their whole culture, the whole anime medium and the whole Japanese game industry. YEAH!! PIZZA IS GREAT!!! I LOVE BLOWIN SHIT UP!! I'M A WIZARD or some stupid bullshit.

The Giant Bomb community continues to be disgusting, I'd like to think that the Giant Bomb crew and their religious zealots of a community were actually joking, but after a few years of listening to their podcasts and watching their videos has convinced me that Jeff and Ryan are xenophobes or hopefully extremely ignorant.

The game looks like garbage though, they go that much right . I just hate that it's being used a platform by the Giant Bomb community to continue their hate speech.

Will continue to watch, read and listen to Giant Bomb for Vinny and Patrick, the other children (besides Brad) should probably be toned down for a while.

I like that this came from someone with a racial slur in their name, the irony is almost too much. Plus, no need to get all butt hurt...this game says nothing new about Japanese culture that tentacle rape hentai and teenage dating simulators haven't already.

Hey Dumpass how about you just the shut hell up. I have been on this site since it launched and as someone who does like to watch anime and read manga, I find your entire statement to be an insult to this site and it's community.

Jeff has had nothing but good things to say about fighting games (which last time I had checked started in Japan). As for Vinny he likes Dragonball Z, I don't like that show but hey whatever the fact he does.

And that I'm done with my piece. I loved this QL so great.

I am disturbed.

Jeff's "Anime is for Jerks" comment makes more and more sense every time he shows what what subset of anime and anime-like materials he exposes himself to.

I think the main thing giving anime fans a bad name is the whole "being fans of anime" thing. If they could just knock that off, I'm sure they'd be all set.

Am I on a list now that I've watched this whole video?

Great now I have to go register again. Thanks Guys

Posted by YukoAsho

1) I'm happy that there's a $30 edition, but it really should be $20. Or not come out here at all...

2) This crap right here is what non-gaming media will latch on for video game stories, and probably a story about Japanese culture in general. It's a god damned shame that this is what people outside our hobbies view us as.

I don't like you. Everyone else has made any point I would have cared to put forth, so I just thought I would express that sentiment.

"the other children", coming from a guy getting all upset over people he doesn't know not liking his cartoons.

Posted by OtakuGamer

Think of Japan and the first thing that comes into mind is anime cat girls with an obsession of showing their tits. Its a shame that Japanese culture has been overshadowed with this nonsense, its a great culture outside of Anime.

I love the quick look though, I don't think I would of watched it without the commentary of Jeff and Vinny.

The videos have always been 360p for non subscribers.

Posted by Vortextk

SERIOUSLY, YOU CAN'T DISLIKE GIANTBOMB AFTER THIS, RIGHT? RIGHT? Vinny commenting on demon crotch, jeff learning you can "tickle"(fondle) the girls while it's loading. Come on! I like anime and regardless of my stance on this, it deserves any mocking it gets. My friend really liked high school of the dead. I thought the girls were drawn fucking gorgeously, but....it's just crotch and half boob shots for like 12 episodes straight. That's great, but it doesn't make really good content for anything outside of drooling.
 
Yeah still feel bad for the 360p non-subs though.....there needs to be a better solution. 480p on youtube atleast? To anyone saying "always 360p", it's significantly worse on youtube at that res.

Posted by scarace360

i would play it in an arcade.

I almost threw up after eating breakfast when the super-young cat-girl pirate in a bathing suit popped up on screen. I also stopped watching. Gross.

This has to be a contender for worst game of the year

Posted by Dberg

Japan 2011 - still mainstreaming pedo fantasies.

Posted by hoonsama

One thing that always tickled my interest in this game is the unique arcade stick that was made especially for it. It has a built in screen which I thought was interesting.

Also, I think it's funny how people in this comment page, and even everywhere else, are quick to judge Japan just because of one niche game.

I, for one, am happy that shmups are alive in one form or another. Then again, this might be a good indication of how desperate I am for shmups.

Why do all of the bullet hell shooters that come out these days have anime girls all over them? I remember the days when it was just you & your Fighter Jet/Spaceship. Not this... This just seems, weird...
