The very first multiplayer HD home console game that I ever played was Warhawk. I continued to play it, bought all of the DLC for it and rose to a fairly high rank within the game. You might imaging then, that when they announced they were going to be releasing a sequel, I was filled to the brim with joy. On my way to the booth to play Starhawk, all that I asked of it was to still be Warhawk at its core, but have enough of a change to make it not just a spit-shined patch. I can definitely say that my requests were granted and then some.
After the craziness of what was the announcement of Nintendo’s new WiiU console, there was only one place I could head after the press event. As I would have had to use a chainsaw to get anywhere near the WiiU, I decided to head in a familiar-looking loft area where the newest 3DS titles were being showcased. With limited time, I was only able to get to two and if you are at all interested in high-quality 3D portable software then I suggest you read on.
In less than 30 seconds, We Without Wings- under the Innocent Sky went from being interesting to being the same panty-waving drivel I usually ignore.
I don't recall ever come across an anime that is in such a rush to introduce the harem so quickly as this show does. We open on Haneda, a personality-less, lucky-as-hell, unworthy-of-all-this-attention dude, attacked and fawned over on his way to school, even by a girl who is related to him. Although this looks like some kind of trite nonsense, I will give We Without Wings some credit. The bits where we hear the narrator commenting on the story is fun, and there are a few nice visual flourishes, but it still is not enough to keep my attention. Yes, I denounce this anime even though provides me with quick profiles of all its characters.
