SO IT'S OUT AND ACTUALLY HAS BEEN FOR A WHILE NOW. It's actually pretty good. And for all those haters and pseudo-haters, it doesn't really feel like an Idea Factory game at all, at least to me. Pretty sure the music is from Shigeki Hayashi, too, though I can't actually confirm that since I can't find any staff information on the stupid official site. All they care about is voice actors. Speaking of those here have a list of them (you are a greater person than me if you recognize even one of them, and official romanizations end when you see Charizard so call those characters whatever you want, especially if it's blatantly wrong like I'm hoping most of these are):

Claude: Takuya Satou
Yuri: Akane Fujita
Dominick: Mai Gotou
Olivia: Ayumi Fujimura
Morgan: Tomoyuki Higuchi
Marlene: Eri Inagawa
Ryan: Takashi Oohara
Sasha: Yuka Inokuchi
Marlon: Kousuke Takaguchi
Lucy: Tomo Adachi
Charizard/Daruzaado: Tomoyuki Higuchi
Keroro: Tomotaka Hachisuka
Heath: Hitoshi Yanai
Busk/Basuku: Kousuke Takaguchi
Phednes/Fedonesu: Tsuguo Mogami
Lonetto/Ronetto: China Kitahara
Larry Lala/Reri Rara: Takashi Oohara
Angellna/if it's something else I'll kill myself: Tomoko Kobashi
Demetri: Atsushi Abe
Sherry/Shelly: Noriko Ueda
Dullaban: Tomotaka Hachisuka
Wildmore/Wirudomoa: Masayuki Katou
Weird/Wiado: Tsuguo Mogami
Gary/Geirii: Masayoshi Sugawara

If you were wondering about the gameplay, IT TURNS OUT PPA IS RIGHT except wait stop leaving! I promise it's better than YZ! It's got way more depth to its system! Stuff gets crazy (you have to dodge bullets)! Instead of drawing numbers with Japan's messed up idea of stroke order you press circle at the right times! Different weapons have different patterns for that, too. Different amounts of times you need to press circle for maximum effect, different shapes, different speeds (sometimes speed that changes half way through, which is why I suck at guns and scythes). Also you can summon things. Kinda cool I guess.

Also, you do everything outside of battle with AP, which you get from killing enemies and capturing/destroying objects in battle. You use it to upgrade your weapons, you use it to heal your characters (which you never have to do unless they were really really low on health or something in the last fight), and you can use it to give people more EXP... actually I'm lying, you use it to give them more AP. But they level up with AP (which they gain from battles separately from the free-use AP you get). You can also convert items to AP, which is nice when you get like five copies of an armor you wouldn't want to equip to anyone anyway.

I'm only on chapter 3. Ask me anything.

OOH DOUBLE POST SCARY SCARY. Nobody else is going to post here anyways, at least until PPA or Starmie play it.

5-2B ruined my life so I'm posting now instead of waiting until I beat the game. IT'S NOT LIKE I GOT A GAME OVER OR ANYTHING BUT I CAME WAY TOO CLOSE BECAUSE OF BAD LUCK (getting stunned constantly) and all these stupid children using weapons that guarantee a knockback (except only when I'm stunned). All the stuff the ballistas/lasercannon/boss were shooting didn't help, either.

I got all the summons though, so information on what they do and how to get them (none of them have anything to do with the story):

Also, Sasha is top tier when there's water around. Only Marlene ever seems to outdamage her when she's in the water... and she still doesn't always. 1.5x damage is great.

I promise this is my last post here until someone else posts something!

First, I edited the summons list to clarify stuff, mostly involving Death/Valkyrja/Dark Angel and Fenrir. Second, I beat the game! It was an awful last fight and I feel sorry for anyone who chose not use Sasha. That big old pond there, man. That big old pond. You really need the damage on that stage, and the only other person (out of the people I used, anyway) whose damage ever comes close to waterSasha is Marlene. It also wasn't poisoned water, unlike the last few stages that had water. That was really nice. Also, if anyone wants to know how to probably get each ending:

[01:51:04] <PSIGuest-675623255> I WAS SO DISTRACTED BY THE FACT THAT THIS ENEMY WAS MISSING 1/3 OF ITS HP
[01:51:07] <PSIGuest-675623255> WHEN I HAVEN'T TOUCHED ANY OF THEM YET
[01:51:12] <PSIGuest-675623255> THAT I TOTALLY MESSED UP THAT ATTACK CHANCE :(
[01:51:42] <PSIGuest-675623255> DID NOT REALIZE SHERRY HAD FRIENDLY FIRE

Sums up my feelings on Sherry pretty well. Jerk needs to stop eating her own enemies. She actually healed herself from like, half HP to nearly full by doing that once. It was awful. I couldn't even safely go over to where she was to smack her around, and not just because she was draining HP at the time but because I needed to stay back to protect my bases from the other enemies.

And I know I said Demon Skull or whatever is your best friend, but it turns out nothing is better than Phoenix, especially when you're dealing with... AOE knockback from a boss sitting on his main base. Ugh.

SO, OTHER THINGS. SUCH A DOKIDOKI MOMENT FOR ME WHEN CLAUDE SAYS "SASHA" AFTER SHE JOINS. Except it never happens again because she's completely irrelevant to the story, just like everyone else who isn't Claude/Yuri/Dominick/maybeOlivia. Vampires have the best lines ("SONO CHI CHOUDAI" "KYOU DARE TABERU" "NINGEN ITADAKIMASU"), Rabid Beasts have the most hilarious voice acting ever and I meant to record it but I'm such a lazy lazy. I'm also glad I ended up using Morgan. He became super useful during chapter 7, if just because he could speed through forest terrain. Plus, he's the only person who uses a scythe. AND SCYTHES ARE XL, MAN. I CAN'T SAY NO TO XL.

Now, stupid useless list of all the classes I encountered (unless I forgot to write some down, which I know I did in the case of all those silly Hiyoko enemies) with the weapons they use, and also a note of any playable characters of that class:
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


I'll summarize that list for you: WHY DON'T WE GET A VAMPIRE. :(
