Today we bring you the second Tester’s Corner for Dengeki Stryker, from Nurio!
Disclaimer: Lots of fangasming and use of the word “awesome”.
Howdy. It’s Nurio again, and this time I’m here to bring you a Tester’s Corner for Dengeki Stryker. Yes, that’s right. I got to test a second Overdrive game! I’d do the madman screaming dance again, but I don’t want to sound too much like a broken record.
Overdrive has always taken concepts or themes that don’t interest me in particular, and made them awesome. Rock bands? Pfft! KiraKira? Heck yeah! Tour guides? Nah. Go Go Nippon? Yes, please! And Dengeki Stryker is no exception. I’m not a huge fan of superheroes (read: I hardly know who Superman and Batman are), but Dengeki Stryker is made of crystallized awesome juice.
Just booting up the game had me blown away. The menus are animated! They move and everything! Stuff was happening on screen, and pieces of metal were shifting into each other and, Oh my God, it was an incredibly awesome experience on its own. Yes, I’m easy to please. (Ladies read: I’m low-maintenance; please be interested. ;.;)
But not only the menus were animated. This game has fully animated cutscenes. (Awesome!) The first time I saw it, my mom could mop molten Nurio from the floor. I think it took about three days to turn solid again. The cutscenes of course covered the most awesome moments in this game. And if you’re not awed by the awesome cutscenes, then… then… then you have your right to your own opinion. Just know that your opinion is false and you should be ashamed.
And I never have to fear the music might be bad in an Overdrive game. Once again, their games have some nice and awesome tunes. But other than that, there’s not much to say, other than that I love it. Background music is an important part of a game or show and the music in Dengeki Stryker does the job perfectly. It does such a good job that I’d take the music out on a romantic date if that were physically possible. (Science fails on making this possible, sadly.)
Did you know everyone in this game is voiced, including the main character? Well, it’s true and it’s awesome! It’s not unique to this game, but you can turn off particular voices. Don’t like the voice of this guy or that girl? Just turn it off in the options menu. There’s even an option to turn off the voice of the main character during sex scenes. But know that every time you turn off someone’s voice, you make the voice actor cry. (And that’s not awesome.) Think about it if that’s what you really want. It’s interesting, though, that the actual names of the voices stay hidden until they’re actually revealed. It’s so you don’t get spoiled, and I’m all for that. I’m allergic to spoilers and they give me the worst rash ever. Hidden names, such an awesome idea.Spoiler-free! ^^
And last, but not least: We seem to have support for special characters.Look! It’s a music note! Awesome!
