… of course, before I forget, THEME SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDBEtC…
WHAT VILLAIN WOULD GO INTO BATTLE WITHOUT ONEAlso I take no responsibility for any earworming that may occur because DAMNED IF THIS ISN’T CATCHY. Easily my favorite track on the OST, and coincidentally the theme song for the battle this picture is meant to be from. 8D
So a friend bought me Nefarious on Steam as part of a commission price a while back, and I have to say, for all its flaws, I LOVE THE HELL OUT OF IT!
The gameplay is a bit iffy, and a lot of the graphics and so on feel unpolished in places, but for character art done by Gashi-Gashi, and a protagonist that’s such a gloriously megalomaniacal villain, I AM WILLING TO FORGIVE SO VERY MUCH. The recreation of all the famous boss battles from other games was spot on, the satisfaction of smacking down the ‘heroes’ was great, and of course, the writing and characters were downright brilliant.
…except for the 'choices’ letting you pick the good or bad ending. That was a bit of a reach.
BUT I DON’T CARE, I STILL LOVED IT.
The music is great, Crow is an unrelenting bundle of genre-savvy snark, and in general, it’s just great fun. It’s also frikking hard in places but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
I’ve been wanting to draw a lot of fanart for it lately, but this is the first thing I got time to do. It’s from the hilarious boss battle on one of the stages, in which you have to fight an enemy party…so what’s your strategy?
Why, TAKE OUT THE HEALER WITH AN ORBITAL STRIKE OF COURSE! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!
If you guys want to know more, just go look up the Sukochi boss battle on youtube.
As for the pic itself…Man, did I have a blast. Even since my early days most of you know I have a weakness for crazy-ass, maximum-ham type heroes that are almost villains themselves, and the more shark-toothed grins the better…and MAN does Crow here deliver on all fronts! If ever there was a case for VILLAIN NUMBER ONE it’d be this guy, I swear. I’m really proud of the lighting on his goggles in particular, and the really harsh lighting from his orbital strike hitting his unfortunate victim offscreen.
Thanks for stopping by, and if any of you have a spare 15 bucks lying around and are looking for something interesting to play, I’d definitely recommend giving Nefarious a try!
the fact that dan could pick out all the songs phil used and could see where all the little influences were coming from!!! what the fuck!!!! when will I ever find someone I'm that compatible with what the actual hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
