So because the games I ordered in January got lost in the mail, I spent most of February forcing Alice down my throat and tapping my android phone with a money jerking card game. Fortunately because idgaf about collecting every pokemon, I didn’t spend a penny but none the less it was a good time killer so I figured I’d share the wealth. Read the rest of this entry
I feel bad for kinda ignoring this blog for the past month and escaping into FF14 so here’s a post! Since FF14 my interest in otome game news has been under a rock though I’ve been trying to keep up with site updates and magazine scans. I decided to take a look at Cool B’s release calendar to analyze what’s coming our way in 2014. (And by no means is this list complete since new games get announced all the time.)
So I made the mistake of buying yet another quin rose game, but this will be the last mistake I will make with Quin Rose. I loved the original Alice game, anyone who reads this blog will know it. Hell I’m even raving about how much I loved it in my original review. However my high hopes were crushed for the umpteenth time with this remake and after the jump is just a collection of rants about this game and Quin Rose in general. If you enjoyed this game or like Quin Rose, I suggest reading my original review and not going beyond this point! Additionally there’s CG spoilers everywhere so if you’re new to the game and don’t want to be spoiled it’s best to stay away. Otherwise, read on!
This is the direct sequel of the Arcana Famiglia series, Arcana Famiglia 2. As usual everyone has their daily life on the island of Regalo until one day a group of merchants come to visit. The merchants are Vir, Neve, Serafino and Teodore. They seems like average junk sellers until Felicita and co. discover that they are selling a deck of Tarot Cards that no one but Mondo should have! Mondo asks to speak to them immediately and suddenly he has them staying over at the family house like bffs. Felicita and co. are confused on what’s going on so they follow the merchants to Nordia to get to the bottom of things. Be forewarned, this game’s depressing as shit and characters you love may end up suffering terrible fates. The good news is, being a sequel, every route starts out with Felicita and the guy already being lovers. Read the rest of this entry
Based on the story of the Snow Queen, our heroine Gerda lives in a small village with her childhood friend & neighbor Kai. She also has other childhood friends in the village like Craes who works at a bakery, and the sickly Orva who’s got some incurable disease where he’s bed ridden all the time. Then there’s also Aje who lives in another village but he’s been traveling and searching for someone so he’s stopped in Gerda’s village for a bit. One day Kai brings Gerda a mirror saying it can make any wish come true so everyone decides to get together and wish for it to cure Orva’s disease. Unfortunately it’s a cursed mirror created by a demon using the powers of the Snow Queen and when they make the wish it breaks into pieces. The pieces all get thrown inside the bodies of Gerda and her friends placing a curse on all of them. Kai becomes bipolar, Aje gets foot in mouth disease, Craes is able to predict bad people, Gerda gets superman strength but Orva’s disease is cured despite him now basically rotting anything he touches. The demon who created the mirror shows up and tells them that if they want to break the curse they need to go see the Snow Queen in the White World, but the only way to do this is to go to the Red, Green and Yellow worlds to obtain special keys. With this, Gerda and her friends gather together to begin Snow Bound Land: The Incredible Journey.

Mary Crow is a young exorcist and she’s sent to a Japanese priest school from the Vatican to further enhance her studies. I don’t know why the hell anyone would send someone to learn about western religion in an eastern country BUT LET’S ROLL WITH IT! When she comes to Japan she’s given the name Maria, but Maria’s job isn’t just to study. Her job is to help exorcise demons that keep attacking the school, as well as attacking her. Turns out Maria is a demon magnet because she has a cursed blood flowing through her which is a curse that’s been passed through thousands of years in the Crow family lineage. Fortunately the secret of Maria’s exorcism powers are the fact that she has contracted with a demon named Uriel when she was a loli. He’s like her pokemon who will go out, beat up the demons and then eat them as a tasty snack. All Maria ever does is just throw some holy water or smack them with a bible Unfortunately these little low rank demons are just busywork for Maria who’s now the target of an organization called Hellfire, as they are trying to use her as a sacrifice to summon the great demon Azazel.
So I had a little bit of time yesterday and today and decided to finally play AreaX that I purchased from Zeiva at Otakon this year. I’m very sorry to say that while I really wanted to give this game a chance, the system pretty much prevented me from doing so and therefore ruined my experience overall. Btw this isn’t really a review of the game, but rather a commentary.
I wasn’t gonna review this but somehow during my commute to work the last few weeks I ended up unlocking every song in the game so I figured why not! Since this is just a music game there’s not really any spoilers so feel free to read on!
