The combat was really solid in this game. It provides a really visceral feel with good impact behind every strike.

"Ew, this series? I can't believe they-" *Zombie suplex* "I'm in." Edit: seeing alot of crashing complaints on Steam. Buyer beware?

Yes it has crashing issues, and no it has nothing to do with outdated hardware. The game is poorly optimized, how do I know? Try running the game without setting vsync to fast, ingame vsync is broken.

Most of these complaints come from either very old, outdated hardware, poorly done oc (like using xmp memory profiles), outdated drivers.

The zombie suplexing really did it for me. The whole thing is just as wacky as that. I personally experienced no crashes. But if there are a lot of crashing complaints from others, definitely be aware.

This kind of game is why people think video games are only for boys. It looks like a light hearted action game and this review treats it as such. But a throw away mention of "gratuitous panty shots" wasn't enough for me. You should have more seriously taken on the objectification of women and the harm that does to the gaming community.

Måned siden

SomeIdiot

It's a game review, not a sociopolitical dissection. Even the panty shot line wasn't a point in the direction you think it is. It was merely a list of four things the game has, the entire list following up on a comment on how "ridiculous" the game is. Puzzles me as to why you think it is the job of a short review to take on heavy, overarching issues.

So, is the lipsynching off because they screwed up in both languages, or because they dubbed it from the original Japanese(?) and didn't update the animations to match?

@SaiyanHeretic If you’re playing a game with “Onee-chan” in the title, you’re probably a weeb and have at least watched enough anime to learn by osmosis the gender difference and pronunciation.

@keiichimorisato98 I mean I usually, not always but usually play videogames in English anyway just because it's hard to read subtitles while not getting munched on by mobs but I also don't complain about or even really care about the bad lip syncing either which was kind of the point of my previous comments. It's not that dub is inherently bad, just that you don't get to complain if the lip syncing is off because of it.

If you're worried about it being like dynasty warriors, I didn't think of it like that. More like a Devil May Cry or Bayonetta with some Sekiro vibes.

It's not really dynasty warriors, that has the whole map and area control thing, this is just moving from fight to fight in linear levels like Nier, Bayonetta or DMC.

Having only played Bikini Samurai Squad on 360 and Z2 Chaos on PS4, can anyone weigh in on which Origin is closer to? I didn't really like BSS, but Z2 was fun.

Måned siden
Mathew Glynn
Mathew Glynn

def closer to z2 chaos in terms of polish, but combos are MUCH simpler than z2. everything feels a lot more weighty and the enemies aren’t as easy to mow down without dodging, parrying, or stunning with the cool combos. personally i prefer the weight of the combat in origin but i do miss the crazy combos in z2.

It's Onechanbara?? Not Onee Chanbara! Have they changed how it's spelled?

Chanbara and Onee are two separate words so it makes sense that they separated the two, so make sure people aren’t confused by the “Chan”

@DRWii makes sense if that's the case. I can see how it would be a better iteration of the translation.

It's a more accurate transliteration of the Japanese title, though I'd prefer it without the space.

The reason the voice acting is off is probably because it was never intended to be in english and they just added it on top instead... same thing happened with sonic adventure.

obviously. that's what dubbing is. but there are ways of timing and manipulating the dialogue so that it closely fits the mouth movements. the time and effort hasn't been put in here.

Ah, i miss fun and silly games like this and its nice to see a dumb game that i'd like on 3MR after all those complicated roguelikes and strategy games. Surprised you said it was 60 bucks though - i thought it'd be a 20-30 dollar game or something. Guess its more polished and substantial than i expected?
