Back when I first played GoS, I didn't even knew the term "visual novel".
Either way, it's fine here on /vr/. Think of it this way: At least this isn't a console war thread, or emulation vs real hardware.

>> No.5290203

>What's even the point of this game?
It was released in 1997, it was a weird time for Evangelion, because the show had finished airing in 1996, but The End of Evangelion didn't exist yet.
I believe Girlfriend of Steel was released around the same time of Death and Rebirth. People were nuts for anything Evangelion-related. It was also the first big-scale Eva game developed in-house by Gainax themselves.
Also to introduce a new waifu, Mana, who was actually pretty popular with the fandom back in the day.
>How does it relate to the anime?
It fits in the "action arc" of the series (after Asuka arrives, but before Touji becomes a pilot).
It starts as a lighthearted romantic comedy but ends up in betrayal and ambiguous feels.

Was really wondering if it was worth my time. I'm not crazy obsessed about Eva but I'm just wondering how much side stuff is actually good. I like Eva but a lot of dumbshit gets attached to it's name (and imo that includes the Rebuild movies)
I'm not really into romantic comedies or VNs that much but if it's cool I'll look into it.

Girlfriend of Steel is actually cool because it feels like an extra episode, or an OVA, with little bits of interactive parts.
All the art in the game was done by actual TV series staff, so all the locations and characters look on point, plus all the original voice actors are on it as well.
Maybe it's nostalgia on my part, but I think this game is worth experiencing if you like the original Eva.
If anything, if deels like a more fleshed out "Jet Alone" episode, you'll see why if you play it.
Evangelion 64 has amazing 3D models and animations, crazy that it's still possibly the best Evangelion game.

The spear of longinus level where Eva 00 takes the spear from Lilith is actually one of the hardest missions in the game, mainly due to how hard it is to aim and adjust the X and Y axis, especially if you're emulating.

GoS1 follows the events of the anime, since there's Evas and all (the alternate world on ep 26 shows a normal world without Nerv or Evas).

Eva might be my all time favorite show and I’m not sure how many times I’ve seen the whole thing, but this is kinda how I feel as well. Don’t care about waifufaggotry or a lot of superfluous material.

This thread has convinced me to give GoS a shot at least.

I tried 64 a year back or so but had no idea what I was doing. I still have no idea how that game is supposed to work. Looked up a guide and it seemed like every level had almost random inputs for different actions. Any advice if I try to give it another try?

>Eva might be my all time favorite show and I’m not sure how many times I’ve seen the whole thing, but this is kinda how I feel as well. Don’t care about waifufaggotry or a lot of superfluous material.
Honestly, something I can't stand about Eva fans is how sanctimonious some can be. Who gives a shit if Gainax made some mahjong game where you play against Asuka, Rei & Noriko, it's not like it will ruin the show. Who gives a shit if people fap to Rei? Who gives a shit about Rebuild being Rebuild, Anno didn't kill your family.
I'm actually glad the side-material is inconsequential, I prefer this to the Japanese boner for multimeda franchises where you have to watch the TV show, two movies, read 5 manga, and play all the games in release order to understand everything.

Each level has its own gimmick, but the main combat missions, like the first one, have a sort of set mechanic to it, which is similar to the Ultraman game for SNES. That is, you have to build up a power meter by beating the enemy in order to finally unleash a powerful, finishing move. In Eva 64's case, first you need to break through the angel's AT Field, which is done through button mash (it needs a specific timing, alternating between B and one of the C buttons I think) it's not mindless mashing though). Once you break the AT Field, you can start attacking the angel, the more synch ratio you raise, the more consecutive hits you can do to them. Keep hitting them until you can launch them off with a kick. Once the angel is far, you can start running with the Eva, and at a specific time (there's a visual cue) you can input a command (like up with the stick and B or A) and perform a special attack. Do this a couple times to kill the angel.
There's many different special attacks you can perform/unlock, but it depends on how high your synch ratio is.

Agreed, but sadly non-cannon. Mana is best girl. When I get back to Japan, I will try to find the PS2 version for the additional scenes and ending.

There are two. The original R15 one, and the later R18 version. I cannot tell the difference between the two in terms of rating, as they have the same stripping images. I prefer the original one for its better story and involvement with other Gainax universes.

I don't care, what matters is the time spent with her.

Nice to read about other fans of the series. It was a series big in its time and set a lot of trends. Sega did advertise a lot in the commercial breaks between, and that is how I learned of Sakura Taisen. Sadly as excited as I was for those games, they were okay at best, but more surprisingly Sega did not advertise their Eva games on Saturn during the show run. These days, there are more Eva games on non-/vr/ systems and I have no idea of anything past the original series.

I think there were only like 5-6 cosplayers that pulled off the Ayanami Rei look well. Many more can achieve Asuka. Haven't seen a Mana, and there seems to be a few new pilots, but I have not watched the series after 96.

I personally prefer the pixel art of the original. The refine version has a greater color depth and the visuals are more like scanned images. They still are exactly the same game, but I prefer the limited colors and pixel art.

I prefer to keep my anonymity. The season did end in '97, and I think I really jumped on to Tenkuu no Escaflowne instead, which was more my speed in the following season.

The book is just a catalog of the items in the collector's CD-ROMs. To my knowledge, it does not include any CD-ROMs. There may be a possibility there was a limited edition that included a CD-ROM, like my Keio Yuugekitai books include a Saturn bonus disc or the Culdcept fan books having extra standalone tournament stages for Playstation, but I am unaware of any.

Asuka may get on your nerves.

She's not a trap, but @shirogane_sama, has one of the best cosplays of Asuka.

Literal Rei and Asuka situation once, Rei was cool but barely if ever responded, made me feel like I literally didn't exist.
Asuka make me feel like shit all the time but liked me.
It's better in fantasy, or at least to find a Rei or Asuka after they go through their character arc.

The Asuka I met IRL didn't make me feel like shit, but I was just too autistic (and young) to pick up on her signals of her liking me.
Never met a Rei though, I find it hard to believe an IRL Rei exists.
