Five years ago I was playing the Korean & Japanese beta of RO2: The Gate of World. The betas ended and there was no sign of life until the whole thing was scrapped and out came RO2: Legent of the Second. After a long KR beta, a shitty SEA beta, finally we get the North American beta. I can finally play the game I’ve wanted to play for years and after a week and a half all I can say is: This game is destined to fail. Read the rest of this entry
I discovered that PlanPeace’s newest game Solomon’s Ring is yet ANOTHER segmented release series so I just had to write a post about how ridiculous this entire marketing scheme is. The easiest way to do this of course is list the series, the cost and what we are finally paying as foreign customers.
For a while I’ve been falling out of pangya. I’ve tried to keep up with events but only a few kept my interest. I decided I would wait until Lucia’s birthday, since she is my main character before deciding whether to quit once more. When I found out you could get Lucia’s twin tails it was like a dream come true. On Pangya Korea, you could buy them for a few bucks and there was a choice of 6 styles and ribbons. I haven’t spent money on the game since January but I figured for the Lucia hair I’d throw in a few bucks. I was looking forward to it so much but then Gamerage decides to pull this b/s:
You know normally when I think, of “first 174 players to enter” I’m under the assumption that there will be a 100 or 200 person rooms and a bunch of GMs inside or something. Read the rest of this entry
So I tried to play Hanayoi Romanesque today. I was warned it has a really annoying system but I figured hey I made it through games like Love Revo and Real Rode and Last Escort….it can’t be that bad right?
YES IT CAN （ಠ_ಠ）
So I’m going to explain why and save everyone the time and effort to even bother with this crap! The game works like this – you have to read dialogue sentences – and certain sentences act as a “stat” raiser. When a certain sentence comes up in the dialogue box you need to press X to collect that stat point. If you miss this sentence, have fun starting that entire chapter over (since it automatically asks you to save each time) or quicksave/save state after every single time you make a choice to make sure you don’t have to start from the beginning if you miss it. It’s irritating as hell because it’s not like an option that comes up on screen, it’s part of the dialogue.
Normally when I play otome games I tend to sort of glance at the dialogue and multi task etc ya know? I am a frequent user of auto-mode but here if you use automode you’ll miss like 3 important sentences within a 5 minute span. Now imagine doing this S&M session for 30 chapters (common route) + 3-4 chapters per guy with like 10 guys or something…
So yea needless to say I quit that shit faster than Dyse says “Mezawari da.” during Real Rode’s battle scenes So just from a first impression I don’t recommend this hell of a game to anybody. The art isn’t even that great. The seiyuus are okay and maybe the characters might have been interesting but the premise is as fun as watching paint dry. I’m open to trying any クソゲー you hand to me but there’s only so much b/s I can take ＼( ^o^)／
Well good thing I quit this game when the quitting was good as the story apparently is a piece of shit too.
最近のアメパンつまらなすぎて乙女ゲーしかやってない。昨日１２時間メンテだっていうのに結果は(´ﾟ’ωﾟ`)ｼｮﾎﾞｰﾝって感じ。 たとえばこのゴッグルは韓国ではＰＰボーナスが出るんだけどアメパンは日本と同じくてAccuracy +2なんだよ。意味なくない？ クーポン使おうと思ってたのにパス。ステが変化したらやってみるけどとりあえずパス。ネルのイラストコンテストはマジでふざけんなｗ 私より良いイラストがあったけど誰かぶさいくフィギュアー作って優勝か？ イラストコンテストじゃなかったっけ？それだったら私も作ればよかった。(ノ｀Д´)ノ彡┻━┻ これでもうネルのことはどうううううううううでもいい。ルーシアでメインにしておくよ。だから今回のネルだらけイベントには全然興味ない。ガチャは相変わらず酷いでもうルーシア羽もってるからいらない。 韓国でルーシアの巫女衣装登場したのに…うらやましい。

アリンの誕生日は５日ではなくて１５日なんだよ（ノ ﾟДﾟ）ノ ＝＝＝＝＝＝＝ ┻━━┻ なんでよりによって変わるのかしら？ くだらない話作るためかね？ 認めない。 私のアリンの誕生日は私の一日あとなんですから。 この５日のくだらない間違いわ絶対認めない。 あとはビンゴイベントどうしたのかね？ あそうかアメパンにはないですかいそうかい。( ﾟ,_ゝﾟ) Read the rest of this entry
I’m glad that US gets to participate in the Pangya World Championship but the way it’s being handled on our side is pathetic. It’s pathetic to the point that I have to agree with that niconico commenter calling us DAMERICA because really that’s what it’s come down to.
On Japan you sign up, they give you a time, date, room and password so everyone has an equal chance to sign up. Additionally there are restrictions such as no rookies, quit rate less than 3% etc. What does the US do? Create a free for all nonsense tee time room, wait till it fills up with
1. idiots who don’t even know what PWC is and just jump into a room labeled “GM Tourney”
2. cheaters/hackers who can’t do mental math if you paid them and will be an embarrassment at PWC
3. morons who just want the initial prizes and if they happen to make it to PWC they will just run for it and we’ll have no actual candidates flying to Japan
4. actual pros (small %)
5. people who aren’t pros but want to try their luck
That’s funny somehow I wish this tourney was only for people in #4 and #5 categories but its obviously going to be mostly people in #1-3. And the best part is Ntreev/SGI thinks this is a great idea. They say “oh well we can point out pros instantly without having to do this tourney so we’re doing it to give everyone a chance.” Okay so you’re now excluding pros (who may not get in because some hacker got in) and letting some cheaters play and run off with prizes? Great idea guys! Way to embarrass America at PWC. Sigh I don’t even care anymore. I might try to get in for the hell of it even though I suck and I’ll be in like 90th place since I hate White Wiz anyway.
Also I find it ironic that this is for the American part of Pangya yet the tourney is being held at 4PM PST when most of west coast/central US players are at school or work. On east coast its 7PM so it’s ok for me but it seems like the time slot is better for no one other than Europe. What a joke honestly.
