Well because I appear to have sold my soul to Square Enix I had already pre-ordered the remake of Nier Replicant and it was finally released last week. I’ve always wanted to play this version as it’s a prequel to Nier Automata but it was only available on PS3 and who even has a PS3 anymore? Fortunately Automata’s popularity clearly inspired Yoko Taro to make this remake a reality and I’m glad I finally got a chance to play this title. As usual, big fat spoilers after the jump so if you plan to play the game please wait until after you finish before reading the review!
Cupid is a goddess in the god world Dii Consentes whose job is to shoot arrows at people whose colors “match up well” to make them fall in love. Unfortunately all the people she’s shot so far have fallen in love but almost immediately broken up! Her father calls her a useless faildaughter, so her aunt Minerva teaches her about smartphones and social media to try to get her caught up with the times. Cupid is then surprised to find a company called Cupid Corporation and ends up getting a job there while keeping her true identity a secret. She also adopts the name Lynette Mirror, based on the heroine from her favorite movie. With time, becomes the best wedding planner & matchmaker to show her father that she is the best Cupid there ever was. She gets a tough assignment to get 5 of the most “hard to match” candidates, known as Parasite5, but she accepts in hopes of a promotion at her job. Warning, I apparently wrote a really long summary of every route so text walls (and spoilers of course) ahead lol.
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.
So in a long boredom streak of nothing to do in FFXIV and otome game oasis being on the dry side I decided to check out this Chinese MMO that’s apparently on mobile!
