Lady White Heart Presents Let's Play Hyperdimension Blanc: The Lady White Heart Story (Also Neptune Sucks)

Video- “Neptunia Intro”


Okay, so what to say about Hyperdimension Neptunia? So, it’s got a laundry list of game companies associated with it, for one. The main producers were Idea Factory and Compile Heart, with Gust, Nippon Ichi, and Sega also being associated with it. It’s an RPG about video games, and most of the characters are designed to evoke either the aesthetic of one of the producing companies or the design of one of the current generation of consoles. It’s also completely batshit crazy, with a plot resembling a fever dream.

So if you are familiar at all with Idea Factory games, they are generally pretty bad because Idea Factory consistently shows they do not know what the fuck they are doing with respect to making a video game that is particularly interesting to play. I’m not going to say that this is not one of those bad games, but what I will say is that it has a lot of good ideas that were then refined into the far superior ‘sequel’, Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 (which I intend to LP after this). So why show off the first game? Well first it’s full out trippin’ balls crazy, there’s something to be said for that. It’s actually pretty fun too when you understand all the weird, obscure systems and how to take advantage of them, which I do. Also, you won’t appreciate how playable and fun the ‘sequel’ is if you don’t see some of the bullshit I have to put up with in this game.

That’s all that needs to be said, I think. It’s time to light this candle.
