There's been some pestering from board users over at RSG for them to consider looking at Under Defeat HD, whether they'll listen is another thing but it can't hurt to add a few more voices.
There's one *really* baffling thing about Touhou in general that always just.....BOTHERS me.
There are actually fans of Touhou.... I say again, "Fans of Touhou", who DO NOT KNOW WHAT TYPE OF GAMES THEY ARE.
I'm fairly certain the mere existence of this fact breaks holes in reality, simply because it's so bloody stupid.
There are a huge number of people who get into Touhou simply because they're into loli, and that series is FULL of them. I like loli/shota myself, but.... good grief. At least play the bloody games if you're gonna get absorbed into it! I had a friend who is into it actually ask me that, "What type of games are they?". I threw something or other at him in response. Probably a controller, they're always good for throwing.
Not a fan of the art myself, but that's just me. I read alot of manga and am very picky about art.
Mostly though, I just.... ehhh.... not all that fond of the gameplay in them. They're not BAD, mind you.... they're decent enough.... but still, I can never really get into the series much. One thing that always does bother me is how tiny the bosses are. I'm sorry, fighting a.... rather small girl with a tiny sprite is, well, it doesnt match up to fighting GIANT BLAZING SPIDERS or huge freaking battleships or whatever the hell that thing Larsa rides in Futari is.
As for Under Defeat, still waiting on notification of my own copy being sent out. Play-Asia said it'd be within a week..... and it bloody well better be. I could use a new shmup to play, and I've heard alot of good about that one. It's also nice to have options that are NOT Cave games, much as I like them.
