Characters of the Week #1

I will post Characters of the Week every Friday, just want to share some of my thoughts about certain characters

Characters of the Week
  • It consist of Male of the Week and Female of the Week
  • It could be from game, anime, or manga
  • It isnt a poll based. It's only based on my favorite characters
  • I choose characters as characters of the week based on their design or their personality or their position/role
Male of the Week#1
Fabian the Fastman from Senko no Ronde Series


 
Fabian in Senko no Ronde

Fabian in Senko no Ronde DUO
In SR DUO, His design has improved a lot from the previous series. Still sporty, but his scarf and cap made him very cool. His new black-red outfitis perfect
His face looks more mature too, no lollipops (that's the most important). That's because, he is the new captain of Special Space Service (S.S.S.), replacing Mika Mikli.


Female of the Week#1
Clare Setilan from Magna Carta II
 
Next is the adorable Clare from Magna Carta. what else should i say Lol. Her design says everything XD
I like her umbrella though, the stick is very unique and nice additional tie

Shikigami no Shiro 3 Character Review #1

My first game review, so maybe it isnt that good. Since i played the jpn version and i dont understand the story and the features, so am making a character review for my favorite characters in Shikigami no Shiro 3
  • In Shiki 3, there are two type of attacks, normal shooting bullets and using shikigami as your attacker. When using shikigami, your movements will become slower but your attack strength will increased. Plus, there are 2 types for each character's shikigami, just call it Type A and Type B
  • There is no more upgrading weapons' level. All of your normal shooting bullets and shikigami are at maximum level. That one is what i like.
  • Each character has 3 life bars and can stocked up for 5 bombs
  • For graphics, it has improved from Shiki2. I like the moving BG at Stage 4 where you will go deeper to the castle. It looks realistic and 3D
Okay, first I played as Kohtarou Kuga. His design has changed, he use a rocker like outfit instead of his previous school uniform. He has more cool hair and more mature face. 9/10


Kohtarou in Shiki1

 Kohtarou in Shiki3











 This is a screenshot for Kohtarou's normal shooting bullet. Looks very standard to me, a straight shooting bullets and not an automatic bullets type 7.5/10
 
Next is Kohtarou's shikigami, he's using a female shikigami to attack the enemies. Her name is Sazae and Sayo Yuhki. Surprised? Yes, Sayo Yuhki the female miko who is a PC in Shiki1 and Shiki2, now is Kohtarou's shikigami.
Kohtarou's shikigami Type A is using Sayo as his shikigami and Sazae for Type B. The different of those 2 types is the place where the shiki will returned if there are no more enemies left in the screen. Sayo will returned on the pentagram where you summoned her for the first time. See the pentagram at the sreenshot, I summoned her in the middle of the screen, and that's the place where she will returned
Sazae will returned to Kohtarou's place, anywhere he did summoned her
His shikigami will automatically attack any enemies who appears in the screen 8.5/10
 

Next, is Kohtarou's bomb, he will explode a bomb within certain range, not a wide one to me, half of the screen, i think. Well, i have to get closer to my enemies if i want to hit them. It's kinda annoying if i was in the bottom of the screen and the bosses are in the upper screen 7.5/10
 
Overall score: 9/7.5/8.5/7.5
Average score: 8.1

Random Graphics 02

Random Graphics for today
 

Sengoku Basara 3

I never thought Sengoku Basara 3 or as you know in US version as Devil King would come out soon in 2010. And it's for PS3 and Wii, wierd combination. Usually games are released for PS3 and X360 combination
There are two new characters in SB3
Tokugawa Ieyasu 
voice: Toru Okawa
Ishida Mitsunari 
voice: Seki Tomokazu
I like Seki's voice, deep and strict. I prefer Ishida's design from Samurai Warriors Series though

I like the female protagonist design, very lovely







There is this new character for the Velvet Room, replacing Elizabeth if you chose the female protagonist. He has blue outfit and gray hair just like Elis. Could he be Elis' brother?
