Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed
Very different, Very addicting game
I imported the Japanese version of this game several months ago and absolutely loved it. I have sunk hour upon hours into it. The world in the game is based exactly on how the district of Akihabara in Tokyo. That part of Tokyo is the anime/gaming capital of Japan. Most of the stores are named and modeled exactly how they are in real life. You can enter them all and purchase items and equipment. The fighting in the game is really unique where you can equip anything that you find. Anything from a glowstick to a guitar can become you weapon. The story itself is very good and much different then anything I have played before. This game is definitely worth picking up for people who are interested in a good, different JRPG.
Pros outweigh the cons
I picked this game up after reading only a bit about it and seeing the trailers some months ago. The graphics and writing are great and the story is so ridiculous that it works. Akiba is well represented in the game and you can really tell that a lot of work went into that. There are posters and ads for current games and anime which really helps tie it in to the modern day. The Vita version has slight framerate drops in fights but I feel the game is so fun that it doesn't affect it that much at all.
pre-ordering this weekend. interesting premise. not to sound like a pervert or anything but why don't they start making adults only games? i mean theres graphic images in the movies we watch. why not video games?
So it's like Dead Rising?
So the "Everyday objects are weapons" and "Open World RPG" seem to me its just like the Dead Rising series. Still looks good though.
