Galaxy Angel II- Zettai Ryoiki No Tobira: A New Dawn

Galaxy Angel II- Zettai Ryoiki No Tobira: A New Dawn

Two Summers ago, I sat in glee while I downloaded and installed the first trilogy of the Galaxy Angel series. While I sheepishly admit I did not do a good job at conveying and introducing them to any readers who might have been interested, I’m prepared to give my full thoughts and a half-decade late talk on the second series. For the past month, I have been sitting in my scorching room playing the series day in and out after work and I honestly never felt such an exhilaration of playing a set of games before in my life.

Why was I so excited to play the games? Other than wanting to see and experience more of a series I loved, my old PC wasn’t able to handle the PS2 emulation and now with a new laptop, it is now possible for me to play without too many audio and video hiccups.

Enough of that, let’s talk about a series I’ve been wanting to play for quite a while. This is Galaxy Angel II with the first game being Zettai Ryoiki no Tobira (roughly translated to “Door to the Absolute Territory”)

It’s time for a near-full analysis on the game since I know you won’t play it.

Galaxy Angel ML: It’s Back

Galaxy Angel ML: It’s Back

After much delay, I’ve finally learned how to play these games in windowed mode! That’s not saying much since I have to take fullscreen shots anyway! So here we go folks, the second entry into the Galaxy Angel series. Allow me to take a quick moment to just talk about the slight changes within the game.

The changes will be obvious if I end up taking a screenshots but whatever. The graphics have improved immensely (but that ain’t saying much but they are tolerable compared to today’s games if one plays it now) and even in the dialogue scenes we have a few more “sprites” or rather more expressions for the characters. The HUD is improved and the interface while completely the same in style, it’s just a lot bigger.

In terms of actual gameplay, the dogfight sequences have a bit more “control” in a sense that you get to see everyone in the playing field. All enemies, Emblem Frames, and neutral/allies are shown on the leftmost fighting HUD. Finally, the game actually got a bit more difficult. So with that being said, let’s move on to the story.

The main menu screen music is pretty awesome. The original game had the regular rock intro but this new one is pretty catchy with its bass and jazzy tune. Anyways…

What the hell is Kantai Collection?

What the hell is Kantai Collection?

A few years back, I did a basic summary of Touhou and Vocaloid to the newer audiences for the site. One can never too late to hop aboard and get introduced to two of the largest multi-media projects the two represent so other than my bad writing from years ago, I still consider it an informative post to newcomers.

So judging from the title, one can expect me to clarify another rising multi-media fad: What exactly is Kantai Collection? Since I’m an image board lurker who happens to see a lot of pretty images every day, I encountered a humongous increase in these characters who appear in this strange media rookie that is Kantai Collection.

If you want the extremely shortened version, the entire thing can be summarized in two words: Moe Battleships

Those who wish to know more, look no further.

Anime, Manga, and Videogame

So while I was chugging away at doing educational works and prepping up the Week 3 anime posts, I did something I rarely have the chance to do: Browsing neighbor sites. I happened to be on G-Man’s site and I saw the curious post of Anime, Manga, and Videogame focus “editorial” detailing how the respective writer balances out time on all three. This post/project was started by Yumeka and since this topic resonates with me well, I decided to take a crack at it.

Galaxy Angel: Finale

Galaxy Angel: Finale

Here we go, it’s the last stretch of the game and I’ve already started the 2nd game in the series so let’s keep moving foward

I’ll go off explaining on what things changed and on a side note: I can finally Alt-Tab without the game crashing so I think we can move a bit faster with this. Anyways, let us continue and conclude the first game.

But I will say this, save + loading + screencapping was extremely annoying and while the first game wasn’t bad, it was a pretty annoying experience.

Galaxy Angel: THE RETURN

The 21st has been destroyed and now I shall continue with Galaxy Angel.

We left after I chose the semi-loli, telepath Mint and we’ll take off from there.

There’s the last chapter that needs to be done for us to be done with the first entry in the series and I will in depth about the sequels once I finish this.

With that said, let’s go
