I never thought I’d be the type of person who’d enjoy a game where you pump high school girls full of pheromones to satisfy their needs, but here I am reviewing my third Gal*Gun title. Despite clearly not being in its target demographic, I’ve always enjoyed the absurdity of it all. It’s nice to have something downright outlandish to revel in while the rest of the industry pushes toward that homogenized center.
Of course, that absurdity and outlandishness come at a price, and the Gal*Gun franchise has always been in the middle of one controversy or another. Gal*Gun Returns is no different as a few weeks ago, we learned the Xbox One port of the title had been canceled after some “productive discussions” with Microsoft.
Having seen what this series can do, the move didn’t surprise me. But now that I’ve played it, the cancellation seems even more ridiculous as this is easily the tamest entry in the franchise.
