Game of the Week – Come on, Big Man!

Welcome back everyone! We’ve had a busy week this past week; our for EA and KOEI Tecmo )Wild Hearts reviewed up earlier this week. Please feel free to check it out! Sadly, it does prevent me from playing a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles . But we have some cool stuff to look forward to! It’s going to be a fun spring.

This is…

Like a dragon: one heart Featuring VShojo cameo

So. VTubers! In this column we cover some other collaborations between VTubers and video games, from Inugami Korone’s voice being used for foley in Sonic Frontiers to creating costumes Hololive VTubers in Among Us and news about Nijisanji collaboration in Phantasy Star Online 2 last week . While most of my time with VTubers revolves around one VTuber, especially since they’re from a newer agency – VShojo, the first VTubers talent agency in the US. By Justin “TheGunRun” Ignacio and Adult VTubers Projekt Melody at 1980, VShojo and their talents quickly gained a foothold in the VTubers field. They boast a lot of talent; all of their anchors had livestreamed to some degree before joining the agency. Since they put talent first, many even stream as the same before and after joining. Including, very famously, the subject of this story – a pink kitten…

Nyatasha Nyanners (@NyanNyanners) is joining Shinsengumi like a dragon: Ishin!

I am Nyanners. Nyanners has been an internet figure in some capacity for about 16 years. Nyanners started out as an amateur voice actor dubbing dirty 4Chan memes on YouTube before breaking into streaming and VTubing. She’s part of VShojo’s starting lineup alongside IronMouse, Silvervale, Zentreya, and Projekt Melody, and has set herself aside for some serious Jerma-level inhuman dedication. She appears alongside beloved pioneer VTuber Kizuna Ai who has her own Nendoroid – and she’s a giant too Fan of the Yakuza game; nevermind her old videos end with 20-hour Cinderella as her Up close, her imp cat mascot Goro is named after Yakuza – mainstay Goro Mashima, the Mashima family dog. Ghost-Goro even has an eye patch with his name. This led to someone at SEGA deciding to introduce Nyanners into the hallowed halls of Yakuza as cameos; so now, coming The launch of Like A Dragon: Ishin will feature Nyanners as equipable Trooper Cards. Using Nyanners allows you to drain health from enemies around you (a wisp of health looks like Nyanners’ pet Goro), which could make it a great asset for novices and experts alike.

This is the part where I think about my navel about vaguely related stuff. so! This isn’t the first time a Yakuza/Like A Dragon game has had a wild cameo. These games feature crazy characters from actors such as Takeshi Kitano and Wild image featuring Nana Katase as famous -fan

Such a wrestlerHiroshi Tanahashi

, who both lent their real-life likenesses to their characters. Yakuza 6 also has a LiveChat feature where you can watch real-life clips of former AV actress Anri Okita part-time anchor in exchange for your super chat history. It was only natural to reach out to VTuber, especially since SEGA had already worked with Hololive and Nijisanji. Nyanners love for Yakuza makes her a natural, but sadly Kiryu Coco is not around. A dragon girl who used to work for Hololive, Kiryu even earned the nickname “Kaichou” (“Chairman”) in honor of her role as Yakuza protagonist Kiryu Kazuma. But with her retirement a few years ago (I hate the idol term in VTuber culture so much, I’ll be dead and buried before I can say “graduation” or “oshi”), that dream was sadly dashed. Even so – it’s a bit of a shame that SEGA didn’t back the 2-for-1 deal and bring VShojo’s Kson into the fray. Her gimmick is a real yakuza member (she has bosozoku to prove it), and her fans likewise call her “Kamichou”. But I think that’s too obvious.

I still hope that my favorite VTuber will have a chance to make a cameo in the game in the future. But now, here you go, big man. Way to make Shinsegumi cringe.

On the subject of being like a dragon: Ishin, SEGA also announced the Dragon of Dojima skin. Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game can unlock Kazuma Kiryu’s iconic dud suit in-game. It even appears in all the cutscenes! Yakuza thrives in bathos, even though it happened in the Meiji era. Here’s the next best DLC you can get for this game. I wonder if Kiryu took off his shirt to reveal the dragon tattoo…

” Planet Is Dying, PowerWash Simulator!”

PowerWash Simulator is one of the all-time streaming games. It’s totally an experience to check out for yourself, but also very fascinating to see people go through it. It’s all about the feel of it , man: the hiss of the water on the concrete, targeting the spray right into those nooks and crannies of the fence, see that perfect Clean path through caked on sidewalk grime… if your streamer of choice is really good at nailing then this is perfect to watch The atmosphere of the game “Your Friends from the Couch”.

Hey, you know what can be fun to clean up? Shinra Power Company.

That’s just the substance of time! 💦

A couple of weeks ago, I made a comment about Croft Manor in Tomb Raider as The DLC for PowerWash Simulator made a small promotion . Square Enix, apparently, hasn’t stopped putting more weird levels into the game, as there will now be a whole bunch of Final Fantasy VII

Themed DLC! All versions of PowerWash Simulator released on March 2nd, completely free, the pack includes five themed levels of fans. You can clean up Tifa’s Seventh Heaven Bar, Scorpion Sentinel, Mako Energy Exhibit, Airbuster, and Shinra Hauler. Sadly, there don’t appear to be any plans to include music (as far as I can tell), but the promotional imagery certainly amuses me. Seeing the PowerWash folks recreate the iconic Final Fantasy VII cover looks like fun.

Looking forward again to the Midgar DLC release on March 2nd. PowerWash Simulator for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and steam. Remember: DLC is completely free. Anyone who buys the PowerWash Simulator will not only get the Midgar DLC, but also the Croft Manor DLC.

Higurashi Crosss Over And that early- A series about killer schoolgirls

Higurashi is one of those hotels whose enduring popularity continues to astound me – but it’s not unworthy. A series originally written by Ryukishi

【イベントお知らせ】2/00(moon) 10: から『スクールドイズ』とのコラボイベント「何年目の浮気」をいたします🌈

Details はゲーム内お知らをごConfirmationください✨#ひぐらし明#スクールドイズ

Also originally a VN, especially a pornographic one. You play as a very obnoxious high school student who gossips with his female acquaintances (and sometimes their siblings). The most striking thing about this game is its animations: Unlike other VNs, from the pathetic Viper took inspiration from the game and tells its story almost entirely through animated sequences. Oh, and its main character has some horribly bad endings too – it turns out girls don’t like being played with. While some happier endings have the protagonist and his two main girls in trouble (though one of them is on the way with a baby, unbeknownst to our hero), some worse endings have teenagers killing each other out of jealousy. The final animated adaptation took the idea and made it happen. The series ends with Kotonoha drifting aimlessly out to sea with the hero’s severed head on board. Also the old “Nice Boat” meme ending with original clashes with real life ax murders that were happening at the time, so this episode needs to be replaced A series of images is set to relaxing music – one of which is a boat on a river. Fans in the US responded to the photo with “Nice Boat”; the rest is history.

With all of this, it’s awesome to see these two old properties mixed together. The Higurashi mobile game will feature a collaboration where each heroine will Completed franchise

to change outfits! This isn’t the first time a Higurashi mobile game has crossed over with other properties; apparently, it’s also o with as well cooperate.

Unfortunately, the Higurashi mobile games are not available in the US, so we can only download them

Oh hey, Illumination Studios is about to release it Super Mario Bros. movie did something nobody liked with the cast Chris Pratt replaces Charles Martinet, who has voiced Mario for over 25 years.It’s still scheduled for release on April 7 Cloth, but before that, Illumination is on nostalgia 20 – something that grew up in the early days of Mario mania: they made a rap video.

  • In grainy VHS audio and video, this TV commercial made for public viewing does like that old The The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds trailer references the old The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Music video and references to an old Mario Bros. rap song – specifically the old intro to the Super Mario Bros. Super Show 80. Super Show was pretty basic for many early Mario fans – it established Mario and Luigi as a pair of blue-collar plumbers from Brooklyn (This detail seems to have been forgotten once Martinet took over as Mario’s voice). It featured Princess Peach and Bowser, recurring characters who cemented their characters. However, that was a long time ago, when they were still called Princess Toadstool and King Koopa. Also, Super Show claimed that the Koopalings were Bowser’s children, which was retconned a few years ago so that Bowser Jr. was his child. This is sure to cause a teapot storm. Plus, in an even more famous twist, famed wrestler “Captain” Lou Albano played Mario in the live-action segment, bringing along his famous real-life friend Cindy Lauper. Look man, it’s late 57s– Plenty of Mario lore still exists, so the most they can do with this guy is push him into random references to westerns Concentrate or what have you.

    Anyway, ad. It’s lovely and full of honest charm. Here’s something 27 – Something Illumination is definitely very, very proud of, and they managed to sneak past some suits that were convinced that what the kids wanted was Mario Flossing Bad Bunny (they probably saved it for end prom movie). Some people claim that the woman in the ad is voiced by Jeannie Elias

    for Princess Peach dubnée Toadstool in the Super Show — but didn’t confirm that fact. Honestly, if they dug up the last remaining member of the original show’s voice cast for this commercial, it makes me wonder why they did what no one liked and cast Pratt as Mario, but oh well All right.

    The ad also dropped a phone number which surprisingly worked . Calling this number will give you a clip of Charlie Day as Luigi, urging you to leave a message and cryptically mention how they Will work on any home or “mansion”. (Again: they REALLY want to bury Pratt’s character if they’re making Charlie Day picks up the pieces like this.) The commercial also comes with a truly fascinating website. Site has tons of tiny details like images that play sound effects if you click on them – mostly sound effects like old coins or management sounds from Mario Bros

    game. Also, the phone number at the top is playing the GameCube startup chime, which sounds like a cell phone ringtone. cute stuff! The deep cuts continue — the testimonial at the bottom refers to “Foreman Spike,” the Mario Brothers’ antagonist from the NES game Wrecking Crew . The Mario reference will continue until morale improves. It’s only a few weeks until the movie hits theaters.

    Mary’s Studio First release in US

    I’m surprised people didn’t call me out for another week because​​​​ Decided not to mention it for me. BUT: As usual, last week’s Nintendo Direct featured an exclusive Japan announcement: a by Atelier Marie Port, the first game in the Atelier series that gave us countless cute and cozy JRPG adventures, culminating in a fan favorite Atelier Sophie and Lysa Atelier. I didn’t mention it because it’s only available in Japanese direct sales.

    … So the next day, right after the column was due, they announced that the game was coming to the US. Because class .

  • Like its descendants, Atelier Marie Emphasize a comfortable, easy-going world with low risk of conflict. The game poster proudly declares, “I’m done saving the world!”. There’s also a running theme of these games featuring women as protagonists – it’s over 20 years, only six games had leading men. Currently, details on the title are scant. We don’t even have an English trailer. The most I can glean from the trailer with my limited Japanese is that the remake will allow for rearranged options



  • Original Soundtrack . After that, we’ll have to wait for further updates on the title during Monday’s Atelier’s Anniversary Stream in honor of
    Franchise of 24 anniversary and Atelier Ryza 4th anniversary. Yuri Noguchi and Hitomi Owada, who voice Ryza and Klaudia respectively, will host the live broadcast. Just in time for the Atelier Ryza 3 release next month! I look forward to bringing you all more news on this title.

    Metroid Remastered is not credited to the original development team

    that Metroid The Prime remake is, by all accounts, phenomenal. For anyone holding out for a physical release, we’re in for a real treat. I wanted to give a quick salute to one of our readers, Wolf 07, thanks for our hard work breaking down the superficial visual updates Reforged gave us. He just skims the surface, but a lot! The efforts of the developers involved in this remake deserve a lot of love, but uh… so does the original development team from Retro Studios.

    While many studios have done great work on remasters, I’m disappointed that the remake of Metroid Prime doesn’t include the full original game credits. I’ve worked with a lot of amazing people on the game, and everyone’s name should be included in the reforge, not just a card like this one.

    — Zoid Kirsch (@ZoidCTF) February , 2023

    As many of you are now discovering by playing the remake, the Metroid Prime credits do not list the original Metroid Prime development team. Some quick text citing the original team, that’s all. Video game “credited to original artist”. Overall, gamers have reacted poorly to this, both from those with experience in the industry and those who played Metroid Prime. No one can really explain why it does this. Some of the replies in this thread brought up their own experience with game development, emphasizing that they always credit the original development team for any remasters/remasters they make Game, even if that means half an hour long credits (as in the Sonic Colors port). One reply even pointed out that their team would even believe the entirety of the original Quake since they used its engine.

    Jack Mathews, one of the developers of the original Metroid Prime , says The practice is “a kind of irony”, and I’m inclined to agree. Much work has been done rightly in translation and editing in manga localization lately; it’s along the same lines. Heartbreakingly, so Much of the original developer’s hard work is obscured in this way, especially since this is ultimately a remake – most of this game is is built on the scaffolding of the original Metroid . This game is popular because the original Metroid Very classic. Hopefully this will be rectified in the weeks leading up to the Metroid Prime Remastered physical release.

    Let’s end with some quick tidbits:

    194886 : The Breakers will enter its second season this February 16 No. Players can now earn Giant Ape Vegeta as Raider or Chi-Chi and Yajirobe as Survivors. The fan favorite Otome game Charade Maniacs will be released in the US this October 16 Day! Players can even look forward to Special Edition Physical Edition (and Standard Edition). More to come. 1980

    That’s it for the week. Please look forward to our coverage of the Atelier Ryza 3 in the next few days! I recently attended the Atelier Johnny of the game, but given her popularity among fans, it would be sad to send Ryza away. If Not because of time, I’m having a hard time making thumbnails for this week’s column because I can’t think of a theme. Neco-Arc re-streaming Nyanners stream? Nyanners heads on Kiryu’s buff body? There is too much work to do and not enough time. Thanks again for everyone’s comments in the forum. Some of you have a lot of insightful stuff to share, some of which really helped me. Thank you for being such a great viewer. I say a lot, but I really appreciate you guys. Be nice to each other and see you after seven.

    In game this week! Written by Jean-Karlo Lemus from idyllic Portland. When not working with AnimeNewsNetwork, Jean-Karlo plays JRPGs, eats popcorn, watches v-tuber and tokusatsu, and stays as inconspicuous as possible on his Twitter @mouse_inhouse. 194886
