Today we’re proud to present the second Tester’s Corner for Ultimate Boob Wars!
Ultimate Boob Wars, internally known as Boob Wars –The Boobier and Boobiest-, was certainly an interesting experience to have been a part of. First off, Boob Wars 2 was the first title that I worked on with Ocharenja as the editor rather than Sloanereinja. As I mentioned in my 5-year reflection post, this change was marked with a period of uncertainty as both the translator and the editor were new additions, and Boob Wars 2 was their first title at MangaGamer. As such, Boob Wars 2 was an amusing experience to test, both in playing the game itself and with discussing various issues with the associated staff.
First and foremost, I will say that I have never played the original Boob Wars (2012) released here at MangaGamer, as I was assigned a different project at the time. That being said, I knew the game was a nukige, and I knew the game was significantly longer than any previous Softhouse Seal game (as Boob Wars 2 is a Softhouse Grandee title). What I ended up playing was a big monster of a game with over 60 separate ero-scenes, the majority of which were animated. Boob Wars 2 was, at its core, a silly and comical game. The text itself was laced with puns, and the music was often a set of jingles, reminiscent of a comedy sideshow.
I suppose what was the most memorable incident during Boob Wars 2 testing was what I have come to call, “The Great Wiener Incident of 2013”. Due to unforeseen communication problems, the various euphemisms used to refer to the penis were drastically weighted towards one option in particular: wiener. Now granted, this was a perfectly suitable choice for some of the heroines, such as Milpha and Nico, but for others this was directly clashing with their personality. Fortunately, after some discussion with the editor, the translator, and the coder, we were able to successfully alleviate this “issue” so players would be able to experience the ero-scenes of Boob Wars 2 featuring a large range of penis and penis related words.
Overall, Boob Wars 2 felt like a solid game, all things considered. I am still not a fan of nukige, and I don’t foresee this changing any time soon. However, at the very least, I found Boob Wars 2 to be a lengthy game that featured a fairly large spread of character archetypes and body shapes, and I enjoyed my month spent testing it.
If you were attempting to limit wieners to Nico, Milpha, and Iris you missed quite a few in your great purge. I remember it popping up in Chocolat’s and most strangely some of Estraea’s scenes.
To repost something I posted on 4chan, this translation has more wieners than a Vienna sausage convention.
I’m currently playing Da Capo Innocent Finale and in one scene Kotori admits that her favorite dish are ‘octopus wieners’. *Sigh*
For one moment I was speechless – and I blame nukiges for that… -.-
