While Konami's budget-priced remake of the failed X-Blades, was widely considered to be horrible idea by everyone forever, Kotaku commenter Tales of a Prinny thinks it's the vengeful warrior's / adventuring archaeologists'' knees. Just goes to show there's an audience for everything.
Konami's hack and slash, Blades of Time, might not win this year's best in the genre award, but you would at least expect the narration to be less obnoxious. Protagonist Ayumi has a penchant for not. shutting. up.
Newly released Blades of Time is a spiritual successor to X-Blades, a hack-and-slash game noteworthy if only for its risqué Japanese style character design.
This is Blades of Time. It's a hack-and-slash game featuring a scantily clad woman named Ayumi and her giant gunblades. It's being developed by Gaijin Entertainment. They developed X-Blades which, if you don't remember, was also a hack-and-slash game. With a scantily clad woman. Named Ayumi. And gunblades.
