Lego Marvel minus Xmen

Image
In between us talking fervently about Pokémon and recently the Neptunia series on a blog originally supposed to be about Resident Evil, we like to talk about Lego games.

We heart Lego games.

We were not huge fans of the last Avengers title, with its overly long levels and the painful audio which was lifted straight from the film.

And frankly left us pining for how great the previous Marvel game was, mostly due to it not having the silly Disney/Sony Split allowing X-Men to interact with the Avengers (its shit we live in a world where this happens).

So you can imagine how we felt watching the new trailer for Marvel Superheros 2! We had to push it down the leg of our trousers, and ask for someone to pass us a pillow...


...and one we finished off and had a little cry, we noticed from the trailer... No X-Men? No Deadpool, No Sony franchises?!??

I have a bad feeling about this.

Love and Lego DC vs Marvel,

MegaNeptunia Series vs Overload-dimension: Part 3

Ugh, yet another Neptunia game on my plate,

Megatagmension Blanc + Neptune vs zombies
This one is the direct follow up to Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action unleashed, which I gushed about over here.

And in-line with all that is crazy with the Neptunia Series, I will give you a brief overview of the plot.

This time "for some reason" the goddesses are highschool students.

That reason being, schoolgirl outfits I'm sure... And in this school, there is a film club. In previous games Blanc has always been pegged with the trope of being a reader and being a creative writer. So, this outing, which is accredited to her, she is the film club "writer" and she narrates the "story" but this is not all, the film club is doing an amateur film about Zombies, at the same time as there is an actual Zombie outbreak at their school.

So, the anime-girl-anthropomorphised console wars have done a spin off game where they are high school students, who are making a zombie film…

Yo!
Following on from my other post about how there are far too many Neptune Series games in my life. Today we have: 
Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls
This one exists to dominate my mobile gaming gaming urges, on the Vita. Yup while everyone is playing with their Switch's on their commutes. I'm happy to just sit down in a train full of passengers, pull it out and start playing with it...



...Anyways, yeah this one is a weird one and it took me a while a while to get my head around its premise...

Right so you are aware that (more or less) the goddesses are anthropomorphised (albeit as Anime girls) representations of the console wars:

Left to Right: Blanc (Nintendo), Neptune (Sega), Vert (Xbox), Noire (Sony)
In superdimension they have also included a crossover with the "Sega Hard Girls" which, to make things more confusing, are representations of all Sega Hardware (geddit? Hardware/Hardgirls)
Left to Right: Dreamcast, Saturn, Mega Drive, Game Gear
Confusing beca…

For those of us bored to tears by the prospect of VR (hey remember 3D TVs everyone? #GameChanger) and not interested in the two and a half games currently out on the Nintendo Switch at the moment, it is with some surprise that Ninty seems to be actively keeping the 3DS going for a it longer now.

With the Nintendo Switch supposedly covering both mobile and living room play because, you know, people love to play video games on the go. When did you last see someone playing a handheld in public? Seriously? Think about it? I haven't had a StreetPass for 4 years now let alone seen a Vita in the wild. Nobody plays games on the go. Not in the UK anyway. It's just an advert to get mugged.

Anyway, with the Switch now out, we'd assumed that the 3DS like the Wii, Wii-U and Gamecube before it, would have been instantly given a handful of ketamine and put on a life support drip with nothing but a few years of being pumped full of shovelware to con parents with before officially being di…

We have previously discussed that the world needs more Neptunia!

But right now I am inundated with megadimensions, hyperdimensions and the like… I am concurrently playing 3 different Neptunia genre games, the first of which:


Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart
Neptunia spin off, rather contentiously replacing Nep as the protagonist and putting the Fan favourite Tsundere, Noire as the main attraction. Not a conventional Nep RPG game, this one has stepped into the foray as a Tactical turn-based strategy RPG, And redesigning all the characters as Chibi versions of themselves.


And Just for your reference is a little before and after:
Noire normal model: posing and shooting from Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 posing from the reloaded first dungeon, featuring pink ribbons in her hair with a Giant Dogoo in the background. 
Noire Chibi model: seen performing special Move on Neptune here, beautiful metaphor for Noire smashing in here as the "Protagonist"
The game takes a weird a…
