It just came to me that I’ve spent a lot of time with unlimited codes, but not Actress Again, even though both came out pretty recently, and I still play Act Cadenza.
So yeah. It actually looks really awesome now – the updated character portraits are godlike compared to Takeuchi’s older work (except some of the old stuff still got reused…), the music and voice work are (mostly) improved, the new moves look good and I’ll probably have fun trying to master the character again when it inevitably ports back to PC – so, what’s there to talk about? (Non-hardcore player talking here.)
Anyway, since I’m here, endings: (All from here.)
Roa (Crimson Moon??)
W. Len (tsun-tsun, LOL @ Neco-Arc)
Nrvnqsr (new art is badass)
V. Sion (“official Sion pr0n”)
EDIT: Some more.
EDIT2: And even more.
Sion (the one where Ries doesn’t die)
That last one is definite lulz worthy. Ries joins the Back Alley Alliance, which as the comments point out now consists of two Dead Apostle Ancestor-class vampires (three if you count Roa), a Holy Knight, and the ever-feisty White Len. How long until she succumbs to the Tohno Gland?
And judging from Sacchin’s finger-licking pose in her win portrait, the blood’s back in. Finally.
PS: Speaking of which, since Ries seems to be staying alive because of Sion, does this mean they perform, ah, “prana transfer”? I think there’ll be some interesting doujinshi out in C75…
(I just watched it to the very end. Sion’s “you belong to me” – and all the dialogue after – was very… intriguing. And LOL @ “I know a friend around this street I can introduce you to…”)
