    Aw, look at you getting all "Social Justice Warrior" on a game called CONCEPTION. I hope you get this cavalier about violent content in the next game you review.

    You don't have to wait that long to see me complain about excessive violence in games. I already did it before it was cool

    I know you did. I was honestly teasing and I guess that didn't come across well so my bad. Also that list is retarded...

    Haha, sorry, you were a little too convincing. All good

    Thank you sincerely, Henry Gilbert! I appreciate it.

    I think that anyone buying this knows what they are getting into just by looking at it and would be surprised if there wasn't some ecchi scenes and comedy, sadly that's what 90% of the anime industry is these days since that's what sells, until that changes it's going to creep into the games as well.

    Played the demo and feel the score is right if not a little generous. But the way you described the non dungeon crawling school life is kinda how I feel about Persona minus the racier content of course. It slows the game down for me but I have to play it or my characters won't be their best and I can't get the best personas.

    I can see that, but in Persona, I find those scenes as integral to connecting to the entire cast. If I didn't have all those conversations with the cast, I wouldn't have connected with them half as much. And Persona's aren't just built around getting friendly with girls.

    "The “Conception” in the title is literal, because God’s Gift magically creates demon-slaying Star Children with his young, female classmates. That's right: you hook up with young girls in a process referred to as Classmating to produce Pokemon-style warriors, clerics, and other battle-ready offspring." Japan.

    "The on-screen ritual briefly shows the couple holding hands before it cuts away to a new Star Child popping out of a Russian nesting doll, and the script gets a lot of mileage by implying what’s really going on during this sacred rite." Actually, in the demo, the game specifically states that they just hold hands and think of each other. Everything is as showed and nothing is really implied.
