Special: Where are they now? ~A look at the status of defunct otome game companies~

blding

Alright so we know Quin Rose and Otomate are pumping out stuff monthly but that’s not what this post is about. I’ve reviewed a lot of games on this blog from all sorts of companies…but now that I think about it….what ever happened to company XYZ? I played their game ABC but haven’t heard of them since. Some of these companies were 1 hit wonders who vanished after their terrible first and only release. And so this post is dedicated to those companies who have gone MIA or simply vanished from existence.

Otome Game Review: Watashi no Real wa Jujitsu Shisugiteiru

Translated as roughly “My offline life is blossoming too well” the story is about Anesaki Nozomi who is a closet otaku. She acts like she’s Miss Perfect in school, always doing favors for teachers and getting the best grades. She’s even the VP of student council and is an idol amongst her peers. However the moment she gets home, Nozomi whips out her 3DS and starts poking her 2D mens! The only one who knows the truth about her otaku hobbies is her step brother Shun, who she is currently living alone with because their parents are traveling overseas.  This is a free doujin game created by Tetrascope and is available to download on their site. Spoilers after the jump and also because this game is really good there’s a LOT OF TEXT \(^o^)/

Otome Game Review: Minus Eight (-8)

Yaotome Rei is about to start her first year of high school but she didn’t get into the school she wanted. The reason is her middle school senpais wasted her time with studying too much or slacking off too much and she ended up failing all her entrance exams. The only school that accepts her is a school that takes in the most disappointing students in all of Japan. Rei decides she’ll try her best anyway until she finds out that the school’s gonna be shut down mid year because the principal is also an idiot :lol: The principal says that the only way to save the school from getting shut down is to…..fall in love! By showing that the school is full of raburabu couples, apparently they will get a large sum of money (probably because Japan’s birth rate is abysmally low www). Now it’s up to Rei to find the man of her dreams, but unfortunately she only has a bunch of losers to choose from.

Ameba Otome Game Review: Boyfriend (Kari)

bfkari

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

2014 New Releases Digest

vita

There’s a yellow PS Vita 2000 with my name on it.

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.)

Abridged Edition Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Half-assed World~

This game is an embarrassment I feel embarrassed for wasting money on it.

This game is an embarrassment I feel embarrassed for wasting money on it.

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!
