Frequently Asked Questions
Since I appear to get a few similar questions from time to time I figured a general blog FAQ would be easier. With this in mind, anything asked in comments that’s already in this faq will either be ignored or considered as spam and deleted so PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY (especially #1 and 2!!) thank you.
1. Where can I download otome games!?!?!
Not here please look elsewhere.
2. Where did you get game _____ in English??
I do not play any games in English except any fan made games. All my games are played in original Japanese format. Typically fanmade games can be found at the Ren’Py forums or in their wiki under game list. All my FC2 blog screencaps/posts are manually translated with photoshop (which isn’t even that well done so it should be obvious they are shops not Engilsh games lol.)
3. Where can I find the walkthrough for game _____ ?
Google the game name + the word 攻略 if you’re lazy. For newly released games there aren’t that many guides and typically walkthroughs are posted on 2ch.
4. How do I get a custom icon in my avatar when I comment on this blog?
You need to register at Gravatar, upload a custom image and when you type in your comment use the email address you registered your gravatar with. Alternatively if you register a wordpress.com account you can edit your avatar through that as well as it’s connected with Gravatar.
5. Where can I buy otome games?
CD Japan! Please use the affiliate link below as it will give me discounts so I can purchase more games to review (｡･ω･｡)
6. Do you plan to review ________ ?
I have a pretty huge backlog and I’m pretty much going down the list of every otome game made so most likely yes. However I will not be reviewing any old R-18 games cause bleh rape. I will not be touching anything by KOEI as I just don’t like the art and lol non-speaking heroines. I had enough of that with Amnesia. （ಠ_ಠ）Also if it wasn’t obvious already, I will never play or review BL games.
7. I want to download Android otome games but in the market it says it’s incompatible with my phone?
Apparently the market enabler method no longer works so you need to download an extension on google chrome called apk downloader. This is what a friend told me but I have not yet tested it myself.
8. How can I register for Yahoo Mobage?
You can register by going to sp.mbga.jp on your phone. Mobage allows you to use either a yahoo japan or a gmail account to register so unlike Gree, they’re not completely racist!
9. How do you broadcast your PSP games?
Remotejoy Lite. You need to have a modded PSP in order to do this.
10. When do you usually broadcast otome games?
I try to broadcast around 7~11PM EST on the weekdays and most of the day on the weekends starting in the afternoon.
11. I’m an indie game developer and I’d like you to review my commercial otome game.
I’d be glad to review your game – provided you send me a free copy! In return you’d probably get a ton of exposure as well as hits on your game site. Just leave a comment somewhere with your real email (in the emailbox, only I can see it so no worries about spambots) and I’ll shoot you a response directly. Please note this only applies to otome games/visual novels.
12. I don’t like your opinion of ____ game! How dare you insult my favorite characters and not completely sugarcoat your review like everyone else!
I’m not a professional, despite common opinion, this is actually a personal blog I do for a hobby. I’m not obliged to please you or anyone else and if you don’t like it, don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out! ヽ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ﾉ┌┛)`Дﾟ)･;’ｶﾞｯ!! I am totally open to civilized discussion of our differences of opinion but if you want to try forcing your opinion down people’s throats, leave.
