Special: Why I quit buying otome PC games.

Happy May everyone! I’m settling into my new place while plowing through the Norn9 FD! 😀 Anyway I don’t really do too much of these things anymore but I was just thinking about all these PC games collecting dust on my bookshelf that I have nothing to do with. I came up with all these ideas in my head that I figured would be beyond 140 characters in my twitter account so I’m writing a post. Warning, this is a rant ;D

The Pitfalls of Bad Game Systems: My short lived encounter with AreaX

So I had a little bit of time yesterday and today and decided to finally play AreaX that I purchased from Zeiva at Otakon this year.

Now departing Gamerage Casino, all aboard!

For a while I’ve been falling out of pangya. I’ve tried to keep up with events but only a few kept my interest. I decided I would wait until Lucia’s birthday, since she is my main character before deciding whether to quit once more. When I found out you could get Lucia’s twin tails it was like a dream come true. On Pangya Korea, you could buy them for a few bucks and there was a choice of 6 styles and ribbons. I haven’t spent money on the game since January but I figured for the Lucia hair I’d throw in a few bucks. I was looking forward to it so much but then Gamerage decides to pull this b/s:
