Otome Game Review: Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Twin World~

Who knew I’d play another Quin Rose game!? I guess boredom hit me hard this summer and with a lack of any new otome game releases period I decided to play the FD I never bothered to. It’s actually the FD to the first Alice game except they replaced Dee & Dum with Humpty & Dumpty. They claim themselves to be twins but they look nothing alike and Alice thinks she’s going crazy cause it’s not Dee & Dum lol. Nightmare explains that it’s just a “crazy storm” where everyone changes temporarily, except Alice, since she’s an outsider – and that’s why nobody thinks Humpty & Dumpty replacing Dee & Dum is odd except for her. So basically it was an excuse for QuinRose to justify changing people and making them O/C and while it worked in some it ended up ruining things for me in others.

Otome Game Review: Usotsuki Shangrila

Akari has been living alone most of her life due to being an orphan. One day during a solar eclipse, she’s sucked into another world called Shangrila where it’s eternally night and no signs of daylight. The elders find out and say she’s the “Liar Moon” from the prophecy who will save Shangrila and return the daylight to them. Unfortunately nobody actually knows how to do this… except Fenrir and his brothers who know that in order to get the sun back, the Liar Moon has to sacrifice her life. And as fate would have it, Fenrir is the first person Akari runs into and becomes friendly with. Additionally, Akari also has the powers to see people’s past simply by looking at the reflection of the moon in a body of water. This leads her to discover the truth about everything in Shangrila.

Guest Review: Amnesia Memories

So since Amnesia was licensed in English by Idea Factory and released on Steam, once it came on sale for like 90% off I finally convinced Kent my husband to buy and play it. And well since we used to blog anime together I figured why not have him review it? Although after reading his thoughts, I think I might have made a grave mistake ಠ_ಠ. If you dare to read his review (aka making fun of the game) please follow after the jump! If the reactions from my readers aren’t too horrifying, then maybe I’ll have him write up a review for the Norn 9 Aksys port that I’m forcing him to play. Also for the most part, it’s non spoiler but it does contain CGs from the game.

Otome Game Review: Amnesia World

So I didn’t intend to play this when it came out a year ago but I found it on sale while I was in Japan and was like well why not? Turns out it was actually a worthwhile purchase for me. I played this solely during my commute which is why it took me almost 2 months to complete but I enjoyed it none the less. The game begins with our heroine (who will forever be known as Mary Sue on this blog) once again having no memories as she’s transported through different “worlds”. Pretty much brief summaries ahead and not much of a spoiler so feel free to read on everything except Second World which actually has the true spoiler of the game.
