FFX was a game I’ve wanted to play since my college days, when I saw someone playing it in the commuter lounge on the PS2 they brought from their dorm room. I always had watched it and it looked interesting but not having a PS2 for years and eventually losing interest…thanks to FF14 and FF14 I rekindled my interest in other Final Fantasy games. During a steam sale 2 years ago I purchased this game but due to a huge otome game backlog I never touched it…until about 2 months ago when I finally decided to sit down and see what the greatness was all about. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed. If you’re a hard core FFX fan I suggest skipping this review, because as a first time player in 2018, a lot of things bothered me and really took away from the overall enjoyment. Also this review will contain spoilers so read at your own risk. Since my husband pretty much played this game together with me, I’m having him write his thoughts in green.
Because I liked the story idea in Taisho Alice, and there was a huge psn sale, I decided to pick up the vita port for Oretsuba – game I’ve been meaning to play for a while. I had seen the anime a while ago and thought it was really funny so I figured the game would be the same. Unfortunately while the game does have its jokes, it ends up dragging scenes on but despite this, it has a solid story. Anyway spoilers ahead so if you plan to play this, be sure to jump to my final thoughts. Our story features 3 protagonists – Haneda Takashi, Chitose Shusuke and Narita Hayato.
I must be high to play another game by Datam/Polystar after this disaster but CURIOSITY GOT THE BEST OF ME. 😆 Our heroine Yuri, who is a rabid yaoi fangirl, is pissed off that she’s not as good looking as her twin brother Kairi. They find a wishing stone and then Yuri picks it up wishing she was a sexy beast…but then she drops the stone and breaks it. About 18 days later, on September 1st she starts her new school life with Kairi, but one morning they find that stone she broke back on top of her bed. When Yuri touches the stone, she and her brother end up switching bodies (:.oﾟзﾟo:.).:∵ぶっ While her brother isn’t too happy being a girl, our heroine Yuri can’t wait to spend her time being a bishounen and yaoi it up with some dudes. The body switching seems to be on and off and so the twins’ adventures begin! Pardon the OP movie quality, I had to record it with Bandicam cause I couldn’t find a single upload of it anywhere (´･ω･｀;A）.

As I mentioned in my last post, this is the appendix disk to the original LE. You’re supposed to be able to transfer all your save data and etc. from the first game. I tried to do this many times but after failing I decided to just start from Minazuki’s route and try to make his and Chihiro’s gifts along the way. Fortunately along the way somehow magically….everything transferred O_O! I was so happy I could cry and to add on to my happiness I ended up winning the 20 million yen jackpot like 8 months in a row ／(^o^)＼ﾅﾝﾃｺｯﾀｲ So anyway the only thing that didn’t transfer were my saves but all the Cgs, mails and thank god even gifts transferred. That means the wagashi gifts I made for Minazuki in the first game I didn’t have to remake! Yippie! Continue reading “Otome Game Review: Last Escort ~Kurochou Special Night~”
I call February host club month because I’ve decided to duke it out and make my way through all 3 last escorts! ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼ The story is about our heroine Akari whose father owns a host club “Gorgeous” that she decides to start attending. Her father ironically isn’t too happy about this but it doesn’t matter because she gets to visit hot mans and blow her life savings to make sure they get the number one host spot! I almost gave up on this game but Koori helped me out at the beginning which motivated me to continue. You have to first run 1 route of just doing part time jobs to make money and then using that money to buy supplies to make presents for all the mans. That means you gotta make sweaters, earrings, bracelets, hats, scarves, 3 course meals and paint pretty pictures. I mean our heroine really is a jack of all trades! Of course unless you have save state, when you make these presents and they fail you will lose the items and you’ll need to buy more. With save state it was very easy so yea unless you play this on an emulator the game is the equivalent of getting spanked with a belt over and over 😆 Once you make all the gifts and you get the “friend” ending, you can then start playing all the guys routes. While you won’t actually gift them every single gift, you do get a cute “I love you” message from each guy when you complete his “set” of gifts so it was a nice reward for all the effort you have to put in. While doing all the mans’ routes you have to then cheat using save state or in game save and win the jackpot lottery. There’s no way to be able to afford the alcohol for the guy twice a month (which comes out to about 3.5 million yen each time) unless you win the lottery. That said, this game’s values are incredibly unrealistic but let’s roll with it!
