RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Players take an eclectic trip through a meticulous recreation of Tokyo’s “Electric Town” district, known as Akihabara (Akiba for short), in which they will battle vampire-like foes in over-the-top, highly stylized role-playing action. Akiba has been invaded by creatures known as “Synthisters” who prey on the anime- and game-obsessed patrons of Akiba like vampires. They feast on their victim’s social energy and will to live rather than their blood. Only direct exposure to sunlight can stop this menace.
