If you have never heard of this game think back...

Those son of guns over at Level 99 Games have done it again. They've created an kick butt new board game experience.

Surely they can't keep getting away with this?

We've been having a lot of fun with Bullet. The Spawn was psyched that all the characters are female. She wants to try all of them.

Great review.

The real-time aspect of this game appeals to me, but I just can't appreciate the anime settings that Level 99 utilizes. Just not my thing at all.

Yea the anime stuff is not my bag either, but it fits the shmup theme really well so whatever. Bullet is awesome though. I want to buy the expansion but their shipping is exorbitant from the lvl99 sure so I haven't yet. There's an expandalone sequel in the works too, but I don't know much about it behind it exists.

It's interesting to see how the boardgame world has reacted to the all-female cast. In shmups, the prevalence of all-female casts is seen as a sign of otaku-pandering so it's interesting how a different context can put it in a different perspective.

I'm fortunate to be a closet anime fan, so I kind of dig the anime pandering of their games.

I'd imagine this isn't the last we've heard of Bullet, the system seems endlessly expandable.

Bullet Orange is already up for preorder, its a licensed expansion that ties in with a series of japanese shmups called Orange Juice. adds 4 more heroines, and i believe releases in July. Bullet Star is currently in playtesting, and is a standalone expansion that I believe doubles the number of heroines and adds a lot more high complexity/weird heroines.

I don't know what "otaku-pandering" is, or really even what a shmups is. Neither my daughter or I are much into anime or video games. Bullet is just a fast, fun game, with many cute yet powerful playable female characters, that, to our eyes at least, aren't over sexualized, that we can play together, and that my daughter feels comfortable playing with all her female friends.
