Amazing VGM: Voltage (Megadimension Neptunia VII)

Megadimension Neptunia VII | Robots

Holy shit, how the fuck did I stay away from this series for as long as I have? I actually don’t know if I have even written about Neptunia for this blog yet, although I have mentioned it plenty of times. I absolutely adore this series, and seeing someone bashing it for being nothing but fanservice is an instant trip to my shit list. That’s not even a joke, seeing someone bash a series like Neptunia or Senran Kagura as being nothing other than fanservice just because it HAS fanservice tells a lot about their personality; mainly that they are misogynists who think women are “degrading themselves” if they ever show skin and that they project their own sexism onto anyone who has a sex drive, and I can only assume you’re a shitty person if you are this shallow minded. It is because of this that I got so pissed at Jed Whitaker and why I despise Jim Sterling.

The truth is that the Hyperdimension Neptunia series is one of the most pro feminist video game series of all time (ignoring the shitty harem spinoffs that is). To have such a strongly developed cast of female characters in an age where AAA developers need to virtue signal their inclusion of a single female protagonist as a key advertising point is incredible. This is something that I could go on and on about for hours, but it is not the point. Among the many incredible aspects of this series is its music.

JRPG Update: 7/3/2017 -7/9/2017

I have an unfortunate announcement to make regarding the status of JRPG Update. Following this article, JRPG Update will be put on indefinite hiatus and will most likely be canceled entirely. As satisfied as I was putting these together each week, I have found that it has also become way too overwhelming to do so on a weekly basis and it has reached the point where they are interfering with my other work. Additionally, this is not a case where I can just take a break seeing as how more and more stuff builds up over time, which will just make it infinitely more time consuming when I decide to resume.

Well this week’s update was hell to put together. It turns out that these pages lag horribly when there are too many embedded videos. As such, I am unable to fully edit this article and some things will be missing, such as a few pics, , links, and the updated release chart.However, I did introduce a new segment called “discoveries,” which is where I post about new games I discovered the existence of that were released his year. This has involved looking through Steam, Nutaku, DLSite, and Itch.Io (although I found nothing on the latter most because they all appear to be RPG Maker.

(Outdated) The Guardian Acorn Steam Summer Sale Recommendations

Steam Sale | Capitalism Ho!

Update: Sales over guys.

Steam is at it again with their infamous sales that extend to a majority of their catalogue. However, given how vast this catalogue is, how will one know where to look? That’s what I am here for; to provide my readers with a list of recommended games for purchase along with their sale price. Additionally, there will be Amazon links in place of direct Steam links when possible cause I gotta make some money somehow, but they will only be there if the code costs the same on Amazon as it does on Steam (IE is also discounted). Anyway, let’s begin.

Well, considering that this was the week of E3, it would definitely make sense that we got a lot of new coverage about games, of which JRPGs and JRPG influenced games are no exceptions. Since our only new release this week was the Steam version of Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls, we can just jump right in. Read more
