A reader named Josh sent in a quick question about the action game “Asura’s Wrath”:
I have finally gotten around to playing a game called “Asuras Wrath”. It is a very cool anime esque game where most of the gameplay is done through quick time events and small battle sections based on what is currently happening in the story. It is a lot more fun than I described it just there! 😛
Anyway sorry for babbling, my question is: What does the text say in the circular object, at the start, in the interlude between episodes 14 and 15?
For easier reference, here’s a screenshot of the scene in question:
It’s a little hard to make anything out, so let’s zoom in on the text part:
Yep, that’s definitely not Japanese text, and since this is Buddhism-related stuff I’m gonna take a stab in the dark and assume it’s some kind of Sanskrit. But to be honest I have no idea at all – if anyone out there can provide more details, possibly even a translation of this text if it’s not random gibberish, that’d be swell!
Also, I haven’t played much of this game (only the demo years ago) so I don’t know much about it except that it’s often called a Japanese take on a God of War game. Is it any good? I recall the demo being a bit uninteresting, but the idea in general seemed kind of neat.
