Episode 21: A MARVELOUS! Finale

Welcome to the final episode of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash!

It’s time to finish what we started last October. It’s time to close the book on PBS and what better way to do so than to Platinum the game?

Today we tackle the final squirmy grind, the most intimate of dressing rooms, and even delve into the world of VR before closing things out with some final thoughts.

That’s all on the finale of Oprainfall Plays: Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash!


Thoughts & Notes:

It’s been almost four months to the day since I started posting my playthrough of Peach Beach Splash. It’s certainly been an interesting ride, but I’m happy to see it end. It feels good to get this one done and out for you all to see. While I never will claim to be good at PBS or have the best commentary, I hope you’ve enjoyed this series nonetheless. I also do hope it’s made you think about some of the design decisions made and how Takaki-san and his team can improve future games. If you don’t agree with my conclusions, that’s perfectly fine. Just be sure to tell Takaki-san, XSEED, and Marvelous how they can improve things. Because that will give us all better games in the end. Which, brings me to my own critique of PBS at the end of the video.

Despite my nitpicking of PBS, I did enjoy my time with it. Just not nearly as much as other Senran games. The fact I played until I got the Platinum is proof of that. There is a lot that was done well here, it’s just that I feel this game could have been so much better. So much more over the top. So much more Senran Kagura than what we got. To be fair though, this was a very difficult concept to work with.

The fact that this team went from developing games like Estival Versus to a Third-Person Shooter and pulled it off is something to really admire. Takaki-san’s team has a lot of talent and I’m curious to see how stepping out of their comfort-zone will affect future Senran titles. As for this game though, I do feel it’s a good effort and idea, but not just executed well. But enough about me reiterating my thoughts, let’s talk about this video for a second.

This was probably the most complex video I’ve ever done. I had over six hours of footage to sort through and condense. In addition, I played around with the volume levels a little more here to try and normalize everything. I have no formal training in video editing so everything I’ve know has been self-taught. However, I’ve found it to be an interesting process to learn. Which, brings me to the future of Oprainfall Plays.

I’ll be taking a small hiatus for awhile so that I finish some other projects I want to get done. After that, I hope to start up another series, though as to what I’m not sure. I do think the weekly format works well so since these episodes are rather long. If you have any suggestions though please let me know so that I can fine-tune my process and the release schedule.

That’s all Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash! Thank you all so much for watching and I hope to see you next time on Oprainfall Plays!
