Who I'm Following
Blue Archive | Japanese
Don't play the EN ver, Nexon(Greedy Company) will handle the EN publishing.
Play the EN for the story, otherwise stay at JP and hope they add the option to use english language.
Me and my homies hates Nexon[發火]
Wake up kid! We're gonna write our 30th game review!
Eh? Yeah yeah. alright... What are we in for anyway Sei? [睡覺]
Blue Archive! The one with that cute innocent looking girl as the icon! [開心]
Jeez... alright. Let's start Sei.
You've been wandering at qooapp, looking for games to play when you've suddenly saw this cute anime girl... you've read the title and it says "Blue Archive".
You've told yourself: "This looks interesting!" and proceeded to download the game.
Is that what happened to you? Well, if it is then we're the same! Because I'm a sucker for cute anime girls. [開心]
So what do we have on this game Sei?
Oh! Yes! I've said it earlier. Cute anime girls.
Angelic anime girls. And not just because they're too cute. It's also because each of them have halo! [賣萌]
All of them! Maji Tenshi! [開心]
But objectively? Yostar or whoever did all of the character design on this really have done well.
The game have this really "brand new" feel to it. Everything feels popping and fresh and it really attracts you as you navigate through the menu, the story, the gacha, everything that you'll probably will see on the interface level of the game really pops!
I know it's not the game itself but it really is the one of the things that I have noticed. It really is well-made.
How about the gameplay Sei? [汗顏]
Well... we used to play priconne (Princess Connect) before right? It kinda is like that. But....
Wait for it...
In 3D! [開心]
Everything is better in 3D! Just kidding. [開心]
They also have guns! Lots of them! Because FREEEEDOOOMM! [開心][開心][開心]
But in seriousness, the gameplay feels like priconne with a mix of also a Yostar game, Arknights.
It really just an auto game while you just tap the character portrait for them to perform their special move with an added Arknights twist of somekind of energy bar so you wouldn't be able to spam them. (Just correct me on this term lol)
What's that? The auto will automatically do the special move for you without tapping?
Yes! yes! But does anybody really play at full auto anyway? I guess if you kind of want to not have much of interaction on the game and your girls OP, just go. [厲害]
Other worth note-taking thing on the game is the visual novel like aspect that shows how well-made the art is and kind of a breath of fresh air on the action-packed stuff this has. It will also give you a chance to try other characters aside from the ones you have. Real nice if you ask me.
How about the gacha Sei?
Ah... gacha... I haven't really have read about the rates but as usual for JP gachas, you won't really have pity pulls on this one. But it doesn't matter really... You remembered that I've said it's like priconne? It's because..
Introducing! The best system you'll ever get on a gacha game! (joking) Whale tears! [賣萌]
Whale tears is an specialized gem that can be used to buy at the whale shop for the character fragments. This way, you can farm for the waif- *ahem* angel student you want.
Note: Student-Teacher relationship is prohibited.
And yes, I forgot to tell that you're kind of a teacher here.
Also they can pronounce your name on the game.
Really Sei?! [驚訝]
Yep, if you have written a Japanese name. [開心]
I really haven't tried it. But that's what my friends have said. So... I just believed them.
Yes, I have friends. [發困]
Any final notes Sei?
Final notes eh? Well, the game is fun. But in all honesty? It will bore you after a lot of stages. One thing that could make it fresh is you having a lot a team setup to shuffle from.
The game is rewarding for beginners as a lot of mobile games are but I really see that it will really come to the point where you'll be bored. Well, the game is quite young and surely, improvements and events will come.
Just try to enjoy yourself on the Arknights like aspect of the game wherein you can also strategize based on your team composition. If you enjoy games like that? This game surely will fit you. [微笑]
