Guest Review: 2 Taisho 2 Alice

Soooooooooo, it’s summertime, and you know what that means: Steam sales! The rest of the Taisho Alice games all got released in pretty rapid fashion so I picked them all up at the discounted rate. Again, as before they’re releasing these games in four parts, so this one just covers Gretel and Kaguya (plus the short prologue with Katakana Alice, of course) and therefore still doesn’t cover any of the overarching metanarrative just yet.

Otome Game Review: Tlicolity Eyes ~Twinkle Showtime~

In a future 50 years from now people started doing nanomachine experiments on volunteers to make humanity better. Unfortunately it caused problems so the entire project was scrapped, however the nano machines continued to be passed down in people’s DNA. Now in the present day those with and without nano-machine powers coexist together but those with powers are often seen as “monsters” by regular people. The story takes place about 3 sisters who have those powers, Touchi Sakura, Natsume and Aoi. Their powers allow them to increase “stats” of a person such as strength, eye sight, charm etc but with a caveat: when they use this power on a man he gets a temporary charm effect on them and can’t stop professing his undying love. Also the video I used is a promo movie which lists all the additions to Switch port but I absolutely recommend checking out the OP movie which is super catchy!

Guest Review: Taisho x Alice Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

That’s right, it’s time once again for me to sell some more Steam cards to Russian money launderers and play some more PC otome games!  I had bought this game as usual during one of the regular Steam sales…and didn’t realize that the next Taisho Alice game had come out recently as well.  So next time that one is also available for like seven cents I’ll also pick it up, but for now it’s just Cinderella and Little (Big?) Red Riding Hood.  This one’ll be shorter than usual since it’s only covering two routes out of full game, and again as usual I’ll include spoilers because this game came out like 5 years ago.

Otome Game Review: Spiral Memoria ~The Summer I Meet Myself~

In my continuing streak of boredom, I decided to buy Spiral Memoria off the English store due to it being on sale. I read that it was bad, but I was like eh my expectations are pretty low – how bad can it be? Ominous Voice: It was bad. The story is about a heroine named Miku who appears to have lost her memories and is now trying to find out the truth about herself.
