Long time no read, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome back to the one and only (almost) weekly column about Japanese games, Go West!. With Tokyo Game Show behind us, I can finally move on with my life. Sort of.
Fortunately, I picked a helluva week to get back on track. This Thursday saw the release of a host of great handheld titles that I can't wait to get around to. Like red haired adventurers? We got you covered. Like blowing up giant ants? Covered! Enjoy dancing with moe girls with the end goal of finding romance?
... uh, I guess we got you covered.
Follow me after the break as I dive back into the thick of things while trying to avoid having to talk about Idea Factory games.
Releases for the week of 23-29:
Love Tore Sweet Version
After three weeks of no Go West!, you'd think I'd be able to kick off number 30 with something big and exciting. Instead, I'm here to talk to you about a Kinect game for the Xbox 360. Even better, said Kinect game is about dancing with some cute Japanese high school girls while trying to win their hearts with your kick ass dance moves.
Yup. It's good to be back folks.
Visually, the game doesn't look to be all that impressive despite the rather colorful artwork adorning all the promotional materials. While I'm sure the idea of interacting with 2D high school girls via Kinect is a compelling idea for some, I'd recommend picking up Gal*Gun if you wanna scratch that motion control itch. As creepy as theat game can be, it's at least over the top, visually appealing and apparently quite fun.
