And I finally beaten the Idol Extremes with her as the leader before her birthday.
Two words: Fuck Yeah!
(and I never watched the episodes in Shiny Festa…)
The good news is that the Let’s Play that I continuously procrastinated on is finally done! It cost me time and some money for the DLC song to finish it, but it was certainly worth it. The bad news is that it will take some time until I upload it. With that, I won’t spoil anything else until the video gets cut… so for now, enjoy!
Also, Jupiter is toast! That what you get when you ruined Hibiki’s episode!
As I tweeted on Wednesday, apparently Namco plans on making another Idolmaster game, but this time focusing on the rhythm aspect. To me, it would be interesting how it will turn out with the gameplay. Also, the graphics apparently look good for pre-render, although it kind of goes against the milking of DLC with costumes. Regardless, it might be interesting how they will implement extra content. Probably make extra songs to download or something?
Aside from that, it releases in October and I will most likely preorder this. Still debating on getting the physical or download (if any) since I might want to get a Vita, but I don’t know…
It seems that Chizumatic have some highly critical views on Idolmaster… but to me, the franchise have a big difference compared to something to the blatant commercialism of Idols in real life… Just look no further to the AKB48 or Girls Generation. They have the girls sing to bubblegum pop music and use them until the producers decide to get rid of them through “graduation” and we never hear from them ever again. He should have used the energy on that rather than well, girls willing to join a production group and singing some songs for fun. The flip side is that they at least they songs that go along with their personalities and not poisoned by commercialism of the Idol industry in reality. But hey, I enjoy it more because it’s fictional and not exactly hurting anyone.
Update (May 11, 2012): I clearified my thoughts on this issue and more in my updated editorial on Eastern Asian Idols as the problem lies in the companies’ control of the girls’ lives rather than exploitation.
I must be really bored to do this, but someone at Project iM@S did one, but didn’t survive. This brought a good idea since I happen to have the retro copy of it on one of my old Macintosh computers and this was the result…
Yeah, I killed off the whole Project Jupiter and Kuroi. Take that for bullying Chihaya, but that was too harsh and I purposely killed them off. For that, I did a serious run and I was successful.
Also did a Ryuuguu Komachi run and got a higher score, despite Ami had a broken leg at the end with the fact that it took longer to get there.
The original game is too easy. Need to play Oregon Trail II, which is a lot harder and see how it goes next time.
Finally done my first play through of Idolmaster SP and managed to get a B on the first try. It’s a whole lot better than the C I got in Idolmaster 2 with my first unit back in January. The big difference is that it took less time to complete her story. Still, the hardest part is mastering the lessons. I need to eventually get a good every time before playing as Iori or my tension levels will drop like crazy.
Will get Missing Moon probably after Spring semester is over… but should be enough money left over for Pokemon Black/White 2.
P.S.: I find it amusing that Yukiho is completely infatuated with Takane… Should add her to the unit when I do her arc in the other game.
