Genkai Tokki: Seven Pirates (Compile Heart/Vita)

Postby Rednal » Tue Mar 08, 2016 9:46 am

So, looks like Compile Heart's got another game in the series (also known for Moero Chronicle and Crystal).

...

It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect. XD

News source here.

Initially, I was interested since the artwork and designs are being done by Mota but then I read what this game was actually going to be about and focusing on.

CH is really riding that sexualized train really hard for a while now. Kind of makes it harder and harder to defend them, much less take seriously at all. I kind of wish CH would return to the feel of their earlier titles. Despite being rather unpolished, I feel like they at least held up better than the stuff they are doing now.

Meh. Not interested at all.

I'm rather curious at their other game teased. "Lots of despair, lots of blood".
I also hope they will reveal a new Neptunia game at Dengeki Game Festival this Sunday.

Hear me out! This line will stay in my sig until Compile Heart adds Red Heart,
Blue Heart, Pink Heart and Green Sister to the Hyperdimension Neptunia series!

Well, if there's no license for this, you could always bring us Kancolle Kai instead...

There we go. 8-)
And they got rid of the male protagonist this time? :o
Black Rose Valkyrie could use this as well. :D
Now only if we could continue in this direction(or the original), that would be real tight dawg. 8-)

Nah, I'd say CH needs to start utilizing more male characters.
They tend to usually ending up being more developed as characters than just a check in a trope checklist.

Probably won't happen though, but eh. One can dream.

This is the catalyst.
More males is fine.
CH needs to stop with the harem leads, though.

I agree. Harems themselves are fine and can work, but CH doesn't exactly work them quite all that well. They rely a bit too much on basic tropes without really adding much to them. "Record of Agarest War" did something somewhat interesting with the concept but nothing really much since.

Then again, just swapping the main character's gender to female while keeping the harem-lead atmosphere doesn't really help much either. In some senses, it could end up making things worse if mishandled.

Anyway, I got a bit more hope for the game after reading more about what's going on with the teaster website so I'm hoping CH manages to pull through with at least having a halfway decent story but I'm still rather skeptical.

I'd much rather CH stay away from the harem leads althogether.
The concept isn't real, there is no such thing as a harem. :lol:
Two or more girls want you, they either kill each other or they kill you for being with someone else. :lol:
Just do a mixed cast game if they really want to write guys.
And by mixed, I mean more 50-50 ratio, not 2-30 CH.

Take your talk of harems/etc elsewhere! There are other places to discuss this.

CH makes more than enough of games that are harems. If you want a more balanced cast with good characters/story, then look to FFF. Agarest Mariage handled the female protagonist really well actually. I really need to get back to playing that game...

Moving forward, I'm debating going with the usual yuri loli duo, or changing things up some and going with an oneloli combo. All I know is that the protagonist will definitely be going for a speed build. I like pettanko, and I veer towards speed builds in things, so it's the perfect setup really!

Hopefully the rubbing minigame is decently entertaining. The only poorly done one I can think of is Mugen Souls/Z. But I also haven't played all the rubbing games out there. My favorite example of that was probably Bullet Girls. I mean, I could just as easily do without them, but if they're fun, then I don't worry about it.

I'm kinda hoping that's a dfiferent game with still the same sort of cast ratio, but all out horror. I would like a lesbian corpse party.
