2D vs 3D: Star Ocean 4 Can’t Decide

Star Ocean 4 Screenshots / スターオーシャン4画像

Moderately anticipated Xbox 360 “exclusive” SF RPG Star Ocean 4 has has some screenshots released which show off the game in some detail, though questions have been immediately asked about the wisdom of their character design and graphical style.

The style adopted seems to be a hodgepodge of Final Fantasy style CG and classical anime style visuals, and the results seem to be mixed.

    I'm for 2D but in 3D. The computers are advanced enough now, we need more 2D games with 3D to support them. It's like this: In the early days I was amazed at the... More

Tales of the Abyss Anime Astounds

Tales of the Abyss Anime Astounds

Being a huge fan of the PS2 science fantasy RPG upon which this anime is based, I was apprehensive about the Tales of the Abyss adaptation, thinking it could well suffer a mediocre remake. However, I am delighted to say the anime is already shaping up to be one of astonishing quality.

Ivy Soul Calibur Cosplay Win

Ivy, or Isabella Valentine, Cosplay Win - Soul Calibur

Most would agree this lady is one of the more convincing Ivy cosplayers, if not the physical embodiment of Soul Calibur’s top heavy whip wielding dominatrix.

Tekken 6 Cosplay Character

Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion Alisa Boskonovitch

Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion seems to be departing from its normal aesthetic with the addition of this Alisa Boskonovitch costume (her name is rather unfortunately rendered into Japanese with the ‘v’ becoming a ‘b’). Just who is she cosplaying?

You can see from some of the other images that Tekken 6 is shaping up to be Soul Calibur IV all over again… Expect schoolgirl costumes aplenty.

Shadow Moon Soul Collectors

Shadow Moon Soul Collectors

In something of a change from the usual, though admittedly appealing, curvaceous or at times entirely flat young ladies, here we see an absolutely stunning figure/diorama, 魂コレクターズ S.I.C. HERO SAGA VOL.2 (Soul Collectors), even exhibiting creative use of illumination, to say nothing of the outstandingly lifelike probing tendrils…

Idol Archaelogy: “Idol Game” Excavated

Idol Archaelogy: “Idol Game” Excavated - Idol Master's character history

Here we uncover the secrets of lost idols, with a look at the early history of Idol Master, known in those ancient times as “Idol Game”, and discover that not only have there been some interesting changes, but also that several idols were lost along the way…

Soul Calibur IV Underwear Gallery

Soul Calibur IV Underwear Gallery

You can forget about merely being able to knock the “armour” off of the characters in Soul Calibur IV; it appears in fact you can force them (even ones possessing such improbable pantomime figures as Ivy) into battle in their very underwear, or in at least one case, completely naked.

SCIV: Mai-Hime Designer’s New Character, All Fee Based?

SCIV: Mai-Hime Designer’s New Character, All Fee Based?

Two interesting pieces of news emerge about the imminent Soul Calibur IV; firstly, it is confirmed that noted Mai-Otome character designer 久行宏和 / Hirokazu Hisayuki has designed one of the extra characters, above, looking to be another supernaturally inclined character, an oni if I’m not mistaken.

The next piece of news is rather more speculative: we have a report that the extra characters will take the form of pricey downloadable content, though this is still very much unconfirmed.

Tales Digest (Games & Anime)

Some actual screens of the Tales of the Abyss anime have emerged, and on the PSP there is Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2, and on the DS Tales of Hearts, due in the winter.

Some actual screens of the Tales of the Abyss anime have emerged, and information on the next two Tales game titles also emerges, though as both are for portables you will have to forgive a lack of enthusiasm on my part. Tales of Hearts will be released on the Nintendo DS in the winter, and on the PSP there is Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2, also due in the winter.

See below for the most ill advised character art in recent memory – Tales of Hearts truly has a do not want ambience to it.

Idol Master for Wii (Almost)

Idol Master for Wii (Happy Dance Collection)

The Wii is set to get a game released by Bandai, titled Happy Dance Collection, which will be strikingly similar to the suspiciously platform limited Idol Master; the game will be a veritable fount of originality, featuring dancing segments (involving moving and timing the Wiimote), as well as young ladies the player can dress up and propel to the dubious heights of stardom. It will also have two player play,  Mii compatibility and plenty of famous (?) J-pop tunes.

Finally, capable seiyuu/singer 水樹奈々 / Mizuki Nana (Hinata) is in charge of voicing.

Via Ore-teki.

Tales of Vesperia New Character Details

Tales of Vesperia - Judith

With the release of Tales of Vesperia imminent in August, for the Xbox360 at least, and the demo version already available for download, more details have emerged: Famitsu has a large number of gorgeous screenshots (the content is gorgeous at least, the screens themselves are the usual pathetically low res and over compressed little things we have come to expect from Famitsu) showing off new elfy character Judith, above, looking very appealing indeed.

The official site has also been updated with her info. All looking very promising.

I will omit the usual grumbling about the PS3 version not being announced yet. When?
