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.
Otomate can’t seem to put their cow to pasture so they pooped out another Norn9 game. Unfortunately they’re completely out of ideas and grasping for straws so what better way to do this then to use different writers and artists and just do a bootleg mashup of Last Era!? Not much of a review ahead and mostly just rambles about the game.
I guess now that all the fujoshis have moved on to Osomatsu-san, the Broccoli fujobait wagon has lost its fuel and so in a desperate attempt to make money, they decided to try and please their otome fans once more. With this they released UtaPri music 3, which is actually a lot like Music 1 but more Cero A~ish because the randyness of the original UtaPri game has been lost somewhere along the way. Unfortunately for anyone who has played the previous 2 music games, there’s nothing new in store for you so this is just more of the same. More after the jump!
I ragequit this game back in 2008ish because I just couldn’t figure out the battle system…but then 7 years later Quinrose decided to port it to Vita with the battle system removed making it a straight VN. Ever since Quin Rose’s demise (and secret Otomate asset buyout) I figured this would be the first and last Quin Rose game I’ll play so I can go out with a bang! Our story is about Sheila Rozen, who was a child slave sold by her shitty family to a gang of assassins in Gil Katar led by none other than Curtis Nile who we saw in Arabian’s Lost! He then sold her and some of the other girls (including Chezjka who went to Aileen) to royalty to be their bodyguards. Sheila becomes the bodyguard for the 2nd in line prince Edvard and is also the head of the “maid bodyguard team”. Sheila learned to be a pro fighter thanks to Curtis’s special assassin school but she still has a weakness in which when she gets too excited – her nose bleeds. Her job is to make Edvard the king so she is extremely loyal to him, but she has to fraternize with all the royal dudes in order to gain their support. Oh and also, Sheila just so happened to have made a promise with the devil to give her soul to him upon her death. The game is basically a look into the day in the life of a Sheila and the people around her.
Greetings again, buta-ettes! Oink if ya hear me! (::deafening grunts split the earth asunder and blot out the sun::). Today we will be reviewing Norn9 (and unfortunately this is the all ages version, not the R18 version Norn69), and trigger warning here but…it kinda sucked. I’ll also toss in an overall spoiler warning in here because while I won’t be doing summaries of the routes, I will be discussing plot points in a spoiler way in order to complain about them.
