Retiring from Tartaros

While I wanted to try and level up to see the scenario, MK has forced me into an early retirement. As you can see from the image above, nothing loads. The website is extremely slow and it’s clear they are no longer giving priority to the Tartaros servers. When I try logging in, I just get a blank page in IE, and using google chrome, it gives me something like this so the button to even START the game doesn’t load. Clearly they are trying to make more people quit the game (despite having a huge level up event today…) so that way when it’s time to shut down service, there aren’t as many angry players since most of them will have quit.

With this in mind, I’ve uninstalled the game from my computer and I will be taking down the leveling guide from this blog.  It’s been a good 2 and a half years but poor management has sadly driven this game into the ground. I still have my tartaros screenshot album up on webshots for anyone who wants to see some nostalgia. If by some miracle the game gets picked up by another publisher or they actually decide to do something to revive it I’ll post an update…but at this point all signs point to the MMO graveyard.

After Tartaros I think I will be taking a long break from MMO games in general. I’m just too occupied with otome gaming right now and thanks to my arm condition I haven’t really been motivated to start anything new. Most MMOs nowdays are either “TOO” cute , too grindy or too realistic graphics for my likings. Thanks everyone for all the good times with this game, maybe we’ll have a chance to enjoy another game like this in the near future.

Tartaros Taiwan Announces End of Service

Well I had a feeling Tartaros was coming to an end, and not just scenario wise but with Tartaros Taiwan shutting down on December 31st, looks like my suspicions were correct. In the last few months there’s been a lack of players on the servers, the events and items were recycled or mediocre. The staff made it so the game was extremely annoying to play forcing people to quit (though makes me wonder if that was intentional.)
Either way I hope before Japan Tartaros shuts down they at least increase the exp. I still want to see the rest of the scenario but if it shuts down on 12/31 in Japan as well, at 1x I will never be able to reach level 75 or 76 lol.  If any news about Tartaros Japan shows up I’ll post here but it’s been a nice ride. I’ll miss Cromodo when the game closes ;_;.

Otome Game Review: Mother Goose no Himitsu no Yakata

Erica Fleur is a lazy bum who hasn’t read a book in years. As a punishment, she gets transported to Mother Goose’s secret shack in another world and forced to read nursery rhymes random British poems. The good news is, she has 5 hot dudes to give her some rewards for your her efforts.

Otome Game Review: Custom Drive

Kouda Saya loves hot dudes but she’s allergic to them. The moment they come close to her, give her a sexy look or a sexy line, she blacks out. Unfortunately for her, she gets assigned by the student council to enter 1 guy into the Prince Collection man beauty contest at their school festival. Saya now has to get this guy to have the ideal looks and personality to win without passing out in between. Warning, this game is VERY GRIEF INDUCING so probably rage after the jump. Also please note the CGs in this post may or may not correspond with their personalities cause I just couldn’t be bothered after all the grief I’ve been through. ( ´_ゝ`)
