Lightning Warrior Raidy: Yeah, it's Kinda Porn


Fon-Fon is torturing the poor village girls! Don't worry, I showed her.

For Fans of Dungeons ONLY

I've said that the gameplay is adequate, but only for fans of dungeon crawlers who have a high threshold for tedium-- newbies to the genre should stay far away from this. All the rooms look the same, and you can't see treasure until you walk over it and get a text prompt- there is no graphic for it on the field map. Furthermore, you don't get a map for each floor until you randomly find one, meaning you can easily find yourself walking around in circles looking for the stupid map. You can go truly old-school and draw your own maps, but the existence of false walls and teleporters makes the process far more difficult and annoying than it should be. Fortunately, some kindly soul has provided maps on GameFaqs, which makes things a helluva lot easier.

There is no weapon or character customization, so there isn't much more to say about the gameplay. I would be really interested in seeing if someone could make a competitive, high-quality title in the genre that just happens to have erotic content, rather than using the sex to prop up an otherwise bare-bones product. It's theoretically possible that this title exists and simply isn't available in English, but just be aware that LWR is not that game.


The voice work is all in Japanese, which is fine with me because I think having to listen to bad English voice acting would make the experience about five times more embarrassing than it already is. Also, they give you about a billion save slots-- presumably so you can save before every cutscene and boss encounter. Handy.


I'm a couple of floors into the tower, and I'll probably end up finishing it just to see how insane the monsters on the final floor look like. Then, I'll uninstall it, go back to playing Chrono Trigger DS, and we'll all pretend this NEVER HAPPENED.

...Well, at least until Lightning Warrior Raidy II comes out...crap.

Links to all things Me:

My Personal Blog
Because I occasionally think about things other than games (I know-- for shame!)
Currently doing a 20-year history of Nine Inch Nails, because apparently I don't have enough projects that are HUGE TIME-SUCKING MONSTERS. Anyway, I try to keep anything that's videogames-related on Gaming Goddess, but there's a little bit of inevitable crossover.

My graphic novel, Sterling
There is some videogame-related stuff in Sterling, particularly Final Fantasy, but that's not really the focus. Meant for adults, so don't say I didn't warn you:).

My Twitter I'm very conscious of twitter-spamming, so I try to tweet only when I update one of my blogs or comics. Some people can get away with constantly tweeting charming little witticisms and it's neat, but I think if you have any interest in my twitter at all, it should be useful, never a nuisance.

About the name Gaming Goddess: No, I do not have delusions of grandeur! At least, not about games!
The origin of GG is this: My boyfriend's Mom is REALLY good at Space Invaders and games like that, leading me to dub her the "8-bit Goddess". We decided that 8-bit Goddess would be a really good name for the gaming blog that I wanted to start, except it would be false advertising since I personally suck at 8-bit games. So I changed it to the more general Gaming Goddess-- so I'm good at some type of games, I just don't have to specify which ones:).

Of course, if my boyfriend's awesome mom wants to start a blog, she can be the 8-bit Goddess, and I will bow to her in humble submission.

I have decided to change this section to only what is in my consoles AT THE MOMENT as opposed to every game I'm technically in the middle of. Accuracy FTW.

DS: ARMY OF MOOGLES, I mean, Final Fantasy VI
PS2: Odin Sphere
PSOne: Azure Dreams, Parasite Eve, Tomb Raider

Latest Fan Art:

Yeah, something new! Rydia's cool, people complain about the graphics in the new DS version of FFIV but I love the way the characters look...well, except for Rosa. The girl could use pants.

About Me:
I'm a starving artist/freelance writer/comic book artist/insert other vocation that makes very little money. If you're on Destructoid, chances are I am older than you. That kind of pisses me off.

Anyway, I'm working on some projects that I think might be of interest to some Dtoid readers, but I think I'll keep most of that stuff in my profile section, so the Cblogs won't be taken up with self-promotional posts from me. I'll add the info to my profile when I start my new comic and things like that.
