Gal Metal Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET It’s tempting (if not inevitable) to start this review with an anecdote about that infamous E3 (which will be a decade ago by the time this year’s event rolls around), and in particular, the oblivious flailing exploits of one Ravi the drummer. While maestro Tak Fujii’s own meme-farming antics over the years live long in seasoned gamers memories, his newest project – the motion-controlled music game Gal Metal – deserves more than just a curious glance. The truth is, much time has passed and the stigma that comes with motion-controlled games is slowly and surely becoming less valid. The Wii had its moments of genius as well as ridicule, but for all intents and purposes, it was instrumental (pardon the pun) in the ‘blue ocean’ strategy to get every one and their dog playing video games. Even within its first year, the Nintendo Switch has shown time and again its universal appeal and versatility by having everything from first person juggernauts like DOOM and Wolfenstein II on board, to a series of cardboard construction kits to customise to your heart’s desire. It is a pretty incredible machine, but memories that fateful E3 presentation and what could have been for motion-based music games still linger.

On the most basic level, Gal Metal is a game that allows you to detach the Joy-Con controllers to mimic a pair of drum sticks. Other optional control schemes not withstanding (we will deal with them later), Gal Metal’s other unique selling point is that it turns the ‘traditional’ music game formula on its head. Rather than employing a rigid, icon tapping or coloured button pressing method to measure musical proficiency or punish failure, there is a much more organic, creative and interpretive system at work here. There are three parallel stories going on throughout Gal Metal’s 13 song campaign. Firstly, there’s a slightly odd, gender-changing side story reminiscent of the hugely successful anime Your Name, and it serves as a light plot device to set up the main mechanic. You actually play as a boy that has been transferred into a girl’s body, and as a separate entity, your female form helps you to socialise with your friends, work together with your band mates and play the drums. There are some predictably awkward moments and some visual gags that miss the mark, but it’s whimsical, quaint and not hugely intrusive. Secondly, there is a narrative dealing with the lives and interactions of the different characters in the game, in the form of agonisingly long text message conversations.

Take down alien invaders with the power of metal!

The ‘contemporary’ exchanges about social politics and incessant buzzing of your smart phone notifications explain the difficulties of juggling school life and managing a successful band. There are a few brief dialogue options to choose from, and some suitably wacky Japanese LINE emoticons thrown in for good measure, but overall if you aren’t really bothered about the lengthy conversations (regardless of your Japanese reading ability – almost everything is in Kanji) it can become an arduous exercise in skipping to the end time after time. Finally, as if dealing with the pressures of adolescence and identity weren’t enough, some gold records have been stored on a voyager satellite orbiting the Earth, but instead of classics like Chuck Berry, the record collection is made up exclusively of metal tunes. An unsuspecting group of octopus-like aliens experience this metal music and seek revenge on Earth for subjecting them to such head-banging nonsense. It is up to you and your band to thwart their invasion plans and convert them to true metal heads. This part of the story is presented in a panelled comic book style, with sparse animations and extremely exaggerated expressions bringing a basic but functional and bold art style to the presentation.

In addition, the gig introduction splash pages have a groovy red, white and black colour scheme which will please any Persona 5 fans out there. The third element of the story is where the gameplay loop starts. You’ll periodically enter into the “Metal Chatroom”, a simple, text-based social network used primarily to set up potential meeting places and skits to watch a little later on. The conversation topics are usually just about choosing option A or B and are typically whimsical in nature, such as choosing popcorn flavour, or whether visiting a coin laundry is fun. The process of siding with one bandmate or another, combined with the incessant buzzing of notifications becomes arduous, but thankfully are skippable. Outside of high school politics and octopus alien invasions, you’ll spend your time going around various institutions in town, such as the convenience store, arcade and cafe. While the text is all in Japanese, it’s reasonable straightforward to follow. In any given day, you’ll have 40 hearts to exchange for different skill points, ranging from cult and passion, to moral and active. You’ll use your notebook to choose various places, meet up with friends and build relationships.

Just using a single beat won’t be enough to rack up the points.

Once the days are gone and the yellow arrow appears in the bottom right of the screen, it’s show time. You can also use your hearts to practice solo or as a group, learning new rhythms and familiarising yourself with the structure of the song for the upcoming concert. On a day like all the others, a nameless Japanese high school student, the player, gets abducted by alien Octopi, along with a female student named Rinko Hoshino, to act as emissaries representing earth that is about to be destroyed by said aliens in retaliation for the near-destruction of their own world. When did that happen? The answer is: when space probe Voyager flew by their world with a golden record on board. What history kept silent all these years is that the record did not contain classical music… but metal! Metal turned out to be unbearable for the space Octopi so it’s now revenge time! Since there can be only one emissary, the two humans are fused into one so that the boy wakes up inside Rinko’s body the next morning, while Rinko’s mind is stuck inside as a simple spectator.Later in class, the alien talk to them by telepathy to reveal that the attack on earth will take place the very same evening.CULTIC

Something must be done to prevent Earth from being destroyed! How will they do that? By using that same power of metal that these aliens are weak to,of course!It just so happens that Rinko’s school club is a bona fide metal band, so over the course of 13 chapters, labelled as ‘gigs,’ it will be up to the player to play the drummer in said band,and perform one track per chapter to repel the repeated assaults of the Octo-jerks against Earth. The story is, really, as nonsensical as it sounds and not only takes inspiration from other similar alien/school/music themed manga like Urusei Yatsura or Beck for its humour and overall theme, but it also never hesitates to reference western pop culture things like Independence Day. Furthermore, real world brands of music equipment are plastered throughout with big names like Roland or Yamaha featuring front and centre in the visuals-a Roland RD-2000 keyboard is seen used in every performance (a piece of kit no high school student could ever afford) and the music tracks themselves are metal covers of classic musical pieces like Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” or “Pomp and Circumstance March No.1” by Sir Edwar Elgar.

Hold the Joy-Con in your left and right hand as if they were real drum sticks and make music by swinging them up and down.

The mixture of influences there is as unexpected as it turns out to be extremely pleasant, wacky and what makes the whole experience so endearing. Each chapter plays mostly in the same fashion and opens with a story segment that’s designed as a manga,with basic animations,and the plot being told through the appropriate use of text bubbles. There is, sadly, no voice acting there. After each story segment introducing every chapter, this goes through a simulation segment where, while waiting for the actual alien attack to happen, the player gets to engage in various social activities (solo, or with other band members) to help raise stats that will later influence score calculation during performances. These segments resemble what can be seen in dating sims like Tokimeki Memorial, where each activity taken around the city consumes time and stamina in exchange for points added to some stats, or sometimes deduced from others. Gal Metal, on paper, sounds like a rhythm game. You play a string of notes with your Joy-Con, put down a score and move on to the jam session. From a distance, it seems that the game very structured with certain patterns to follow.

The fact of the matter is, however, this is very different from a typical rhythm game. The patterns you choose are left up to you, all the while feeling the beat of the music. The groove depends on what you can do, how you reach for fences and the performance you can muster. No, this is actually a music game. Not the best out there, but very enjoyable all the way through. The story in Gal Metal is bananas. The Octoid Aliens have come to take over the earth. They got exposed to the tracks of the Music From Earth Record, which they are less than pleased about. Their sensors overloaded as a result, and now they are here to get their revenge. With the power of your music, you are the only one that can stop them. Hold on though, that is not where the craziness ends. You start as a male, but take over the body of a female drummer. You need to get close to her friends and work together towards that common goal. It is completely off-the-wall, but at the same time endlessly charming. The story starts off in the Japanese town of Kichijoji, a place that is described as normal yet boring enough that nothing happens here. On the way home from school, a teenage boy is abducted by aliens.

After finding himself alongside a teenage girl, he discovers that the alien octopi are out to destroy earth, blaming their dilemma on the Golden Record sent by Earth on the Voyager satellite decades ago. The heavy metal music caused the aliens to be disoriented, and now they’ve come to Earth, vowing to destroy it in two days’ time. Seeing as how they only need one person telling the world that the aliens are coming, the octopi decide to merge the boy into the girl’s body. Luckily, the girl runs the heavy metal club at school, and it’ll be up to her band to save everyone. Rather than going for an almost gamified tutorial approach like Rocksmith, musically Gal Metal has a refreshingly open (and initially overwhelmingly esoteric) approach. The motion controls will feel primitive to begin with – think along the lines of ‘left, right, together’ of a Donkey Konga rather than the button-holding mess of Wii Music. There are two different control settings or “styles” of drumming – either the beat registers during the swing or when the motion stops, as well as a 20 point scale of sensitivity. Of course, any music game sinks or swims on its tracklist, and while Gal Metal’s list of just 13. Circus Electrique Switch NSP
