Summer Game Project Galaxy Angel Start!

My residence’s internet got cut off when a local landscapers cut the cord, so I lived without the computer’s convenience for around 3 days. In that time of boredom, I picked up a few games and started Trophy Whoring myself for a bit. Anyways, let’s get to the topic at hand.

Back when I was in Korea, I only had 2 anime channels. One showed the usual Naruto, Inuyasha, One Piece stuff while the other showed stuff like Fate Stay Night and notably, a quirky series called Galaxy Angel. Set in the distant future, it showed a cast of 5 girls who piloted advanced ships called Emblem Frames to track down Lost Technology, remnant technology from an ancient civilization long gone (think Mass Effect and its Prothean stuff). To be frank, Galaxy Angel was strictly a comedy series and it definitely stands amongst my favorite comedy series even to this day. I was very surprised to learn that it started out as a romance PC game, suprised because the anime series showed little to no male cast member. Because I liked the series, I tried to find some way to play it, and that only led me to the horribly skewed (but nevertheless hilarious) version on Newgrounds. Eventually, it faded from my memory.

Somehow, the love for the series came back to me out of the blue and during the summer of last year, and I was able to find the entirety of the first trilogy completely translated. I installed them on to my computer and cried for a bit because the cutscenes weren’t working but I started it up anyway. To be honest, I played these games a year ago and due to business and laziness, I was unable to post anything about it. So consider this a redemption post-series.

So in order to keep post count up high during my rather lethargic looking summer and keep myself active, I decided to undertake a near-daily posting schedule on covering the trilogy of the Galaxy Angel games. So click the button, let’s get started with Summer 2013’s Game Project: Galaxy Angel

Spring Anime Week 9-10

My computer’s internet got fried since Wednesday night and I was stuck planning out posts and what to do for summer since then. Other than usual academic stuff that I like to keep offhand to make sure I don’t forget too much, I decided to replay some of my games. I already Trophy Whored out Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 yesterday when I spent a good hour and a half unlocking all endings for the Gallery and spamming Crossover Counters and Triple Combo KO’s. I plan on tackling Metal Gear Solid 4 since I learned of its recent trophy update. But I have a more active plan for games over the summer and it involves the Gametalk I’ve been planning and that will commence as soon as this post is finished.

So due to time constraints and the sheer amount of work I need to catch up on before I proceed with my summer project, let’s get this stuff done real quick.

By quick, I mean Real.Quick.
