I really want to watch an anime about a spaceship that shoots buildings all willy nilly now.

Youtube page for the devs. Has a bunch of in-development videos, various trailers for the game, and also Comiket previews.

BTW, they also made Fairy Bloom Freesia, which is a great 2D beat-'em-up, and Ether Vapor Remaster, which Astebreed is a spiritual successor of.

As for the game, I found the early part to be easy. But from Chapter 5 onwards, the difficulty picks up. Be prepared to Continue multiple times.

When you ass starts breeding ghost anime girls that possess mechs you should probably go see a doctor about that.

Gosh japanese VO always sounds so melodramatic and overplayed. But maybe I'm missing something being an english speaker.

Nice to see Vinny and Alex getting it done! Can't wait until they get a proper set-up and start rolling out even more amazing content.

Honestly, Vinny just makes my day happier... I know it sounds gay...

Well, not especially, no. You're allowed to enjoy the company of people of the same gender without obliging yourself to fuck them.

I had forgotten how much better QLs are with Vinny. Good to have him back.

I hope this means they built a PC?

They're running it on the laptop, unfortunately. They've yet to expense a PC, it seems, and that'll probably be a while. They mentioned having to wait until next quarter to do that.

Yeah, I hadn't watched the QL yet when I asked. Their PreeDom stream made mention that July 1 was the start of the new quarter, so they've been doing spreadsheets and pricing out PC parts for a computer they hope to have in the next week or so, I think? Then they're gonna build it on video.

@nesre: That's good news! Means they should have a PC put together sooner rather than later.

About damn time someone at GB did QL on this. A good one for a first GBEast QL at least.

Edelwiess' previous games were pretty good too. Ether Vapor is pretty similar to this and Fairy Bloom Freesia was pretty badass for what it was too, despite its looks.

@the_nubster: They said that last quarter. The quarter just started a few days ago.

@vinny and @alex arguing about the plot of this game was goddamn amazing. That being said it sure seems to be anime cliché heavy.

The opening reminds me of Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. Only not as good.

Gameplay seems pretty great though.

Giant Bomb East Quick Look!! This game looks, well, yea. Actually quite liked the visuals.

Their mics actually sound good. If I didn't know they are in New York, I'd have assumed this was just like any other Quick Look.

Edit: Hah, literally The ghost in the machine.

Loving Giant Bomb right now, and really excited for the future. The new hires have only been here for a week, and we're already seeing more and better content. Now that Giant Beast is kicking butt, things look like they're coming up roses.

Giant Bomb Eastern Bloc is GO. ♥

Hugo no. ;~;

It's a broken half-suit so that they can give you the repaired full suit later and full power and true form and something about determination and just a little bit of incest to keep it spicey. This is my understanding of anime.

I want to see someone play that game on hard and read all the dialogue at the same time.

Awesome job guys, super entertaining.

I'm sick of the whole "rival sisters" story archs in animes.

I feel like putting them in deadly killing machines is a pretty good way to go about it.

I haven't seen it done before, but I feel like it's been done before.

That wasn't an argument for originality, rather me saying I am all for doing it that way.

So, hold on a minute there...

Japan made a shoot-em-up that is designed to be fun? You don't have to be a purpose built robot to play it?

Hmmm.

Giant Bomb is my favorite anime. I hope Vinny-senpai notices me today. ヾ(´ε`*)ゝ

This game looks alright, nice to see more STGs making their way onto the PC. I'm pretty sure the story is full of tropes and exaggerated monologues. Clearly award winning material.
