The Gaming Buddha: As the main Hyperdimension Neptuina series continues to grow, there have been several spin offs and Re;Births of the original series that new and old fans can enjoy. One of those spin offs take one of the series favorite CPUs’ (and my personal favorite), Noire, and give her own game: Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart. Will Hyperdevotion Noire be any different from the Hyperdimension Neptunia series or will Noire fall victim to clone-itis?
The Humble Idea Factory Bundle is out now. It features games like Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart (Neptunia), Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force Complete Deluxe Set, Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls, and more.
VGChartz's Adam Cartwright: "Console wars have been around pretty much since the dawn of videogames, but the Hyperdimension Neptunia series makes light of these arguments by personifying consoles and their manufacturers as cute goddesses and has them battle it out for supremacy. It proved to be a sleeper hit for publisher Compile Heart, who after an initially shaky start with the first entry transformed the series into its most compelling franchise."
Okay, so for the past few years, there's been a franchise known as
Hyperdimension Neptunia. The general conceit is that the games industry is
anthropomorphized as a land called Gamindustri, ruled over by warring
goddesses who have "console wars" to determine supremacy and games
companies are depicted as anthropomorphized anime characters.
Inexplicably, this has grown into a massive franchise of games, one of
which is Hyperdevotion Noire, an alternate universe game where the anime
goddess representing the Sony systems has taken over everything.
It's also not very good.
