Actress Again‘s console port – which as I like to bring up, is as inevitable as the setting of the Sun – is due August, with surprises as usual.
Bottom right corner: Ryougi Shiki.
(Three guesses on when the PC port will arrive?)
Update: Official site has Ryougi’s moveset. CV: Sakamoto Maaya.
I know, there’s an article also on the front page about a Muslim man paying assassins to kill his own daughter for wearing a miniskirt, but this is more relatable (at least until the next the holy war sweeps into Hong Kong for some reason). Many things I want to comment on – selective perception, blatant prejudice, blind zealousness – but there’s enough of the ‘grain of truth’ in the whole ordeal that I just want to do the usual routine.
EDIT: I drafted this back when the game just came out. Don’t ask me why I’ve never posted it.
You can’t break a man the way you break a dog, or a horse. The harder you beat a man, the taller he stands. To break a man’s will, to break his spirit, you have to break his mind. Men have this idea that there’s a way to fight with dignity, that there’s a proper way to kill someone. It’s absurd, it’s anesthetic. We need it to endure the bloody horror of murder. You must destroy that idea. Show him what a messy, terrible thing it is to kill a man, and then show him that you relish in it.
Considering Act Cadenza is still installed on my comp, I have quite a bit of expectation for the likely unlimited codes Windows (or whatever they append on the end). Above video certainly didn’t ease that… Ilya the announcer (I’m in agreement with the “cuteness overwhelming” comments), and one hell of a Saber/Saber Alter player. Ending a combo with Vortigern looks really badass no matter how many times it’s done – not to mention the Vader-choke finish.
EDIT: The picture below is what happens when I’m bored on a Saturday morning.
Far from all the parts available to the AK user.
I mentioned in the actual coverage-like thing that I found Op7 to be very satisfying. And naturally, the better something is, the more apparent the misses become.
Note that this is purely nitpicking or griping on my part.

SWAT officers decorate the main menu, for inexplicable reasons.
There is a fairly new – as in, less than half the years of the juggernauts – MMOFPS in the market, the free shooter Operation7 by… a Korean studio which I don’t know (Park Esm?). As might be expected from the Koreans, Op7 is incredibly addictive despite some – let’s be honest here – very stupid design decisions.
I don’t usually catch meme mutation much (late or otherwise)… but you have got to be fucking kidding me.
(Though I think this can be easily taken as Flandre’s canonical personality. And what was Wriggle doing in there?)
EDIT: And just to prove nothing is sacred (or too late to post), Mystia’s version.
This just makes me hate Mystia’s Spell Cards even more. But not as much as I hate myself for not being able to resist posting these damn things. Aaaargh.
