REVIEW: Omega Quintet | oprainfall

Omega Quintet is Compile Heart's first attempt at a RPG on current generation consoles. Steve was very interested to see what they could do on the new PS4 hardware. Was it a big improvement over their last generation titles or a lackluster current generation outing?

Cool this game is getting pretty good scores so far. Nice to see that the 'subject matter' that has always plagued Compile Heart games hasn't been a big factor so far.

Reviewers are judging the game on its gameplay.

This can be the final fantasy 10-2 of compile hearts,even for neptunia standard this game will be overlooked for being too otaku.

I am waiting for a price drop on this game, as I just got my copy of Hyperdimension Neptunia VII in the mail this morning from Japan and won't have time for a game I am unsure of.

So be it. Neptunia has seen tremendous success despite being mostly ignored by the mainstream, even though it's often praised by unbiased reviews. Compile hearts has their style, but they do make good games...weird sometimes...but good.

Neptunias curse was that it started coming out when SJW was in it's embryonic stage, where people like Patricia Hernendez quietly crept up the ranks of influence of the media, and game journalism outlets lost their value of self-worth and independent thinking because they decided to become something they're it became an icon of what was wrong with gaming today, and hated on for no good reason. If Neptunia had come out during the PS2 years, it would now likely have a lot of hype and onlookers like a FF game had before FF13.

It's also rather ironic that Neptunia is considered too Otaku...since that's pretty much what it satirizes within it's stories. Gaming and Otaku are pretty synonymous in Japan, and the Neptunian stories are symbolically about the console wars and the people who participate in them.

Whats life like in Japan once you've reached 20?
Im just wondering since there is such a focus on the preteens, teens.

Normal working day. Unless you visit place like Akiba or the arcades scattered around the country. I'll visit the one in Yokohama from time to time. I still like to play the rhythm games.

Probably about as boring as it is being a 20yo anywhere else in the world. Work and responsibilities suck no matter where you live.

There's plenty of this kind of focus in western media as well. It's just not confined to a game media which we focus on, which makes it seem like it's the only thing out there, despite being a huge generality.

Watch TV meant for teens, or the Disney channel, or commercials aimed at teens. There is just as much sexual innuendo from young attractive people as you see in gaming...if not more proportionately. This is probably because teens are more hormone driven than those in their 30's.
