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.
Akagami Mashiro climbed & fell off a pomegranate tree when she was younger but miraculously awakened. Now many years later, she’s attending university while she works part time job at an ice cream store. She goes to a mirror exhibit at a museum with her friend Ataru and the mirror on the wall talks to her bringing her to an “Insanity World” filled with various mirrors. The voice in the mirror then says that Mashiro is the “Snow White” who has to save one of her “dwarves” and based on the mirror she chooses, it will decide who the one being saved will be. Nonsensical intro because the truth is in the spoilers so skip those and jump to my final thoughts if you don’t want to see!
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.
From the graveyard of Quin Rose, I’ve finally picked up & finished Wizard & Master! I originally had the PC version but I couldn’t get started on it because I didn’t want to deal with yet another grueling battle/stat raiser system like Crimson Empire or Arabian’s Lost. Thankfully Quin Rose made the Vita port a straight VN but just like with Alice, it was at the cost of a lot of CGs on the chopping block. (;´･ω･) Oh well our story begins in the country of Rune Venus where everyone can use magic – everyone except our heroine Alicia who has 0 magic powers (or so she thinks.) In order to inherit the throne, princess Alicia has 25 weeks to find a powerful wizard husbando or else she gets sent back to the countryside and loses her inheritance. It’s a fateful half a year, will Alicia be able to secure her wizard ikeman? 😆
Let’s see how many people dismiss this post because I translated Reine des Fleurs from French to English :lol:. Honestly, I cannot take this game seriously. It was very difficult for me to write this review. As I am writing this post after finishing the game I wish I could jump back in time and cancel my preorder. I’m not even gonna bother summarizing the story here because the entire thing is a sham and coverup for the real truth behind the whole game. If you wish to see the truth behind what really happens, read after the jump at your own risk. Warning: Extreme rage and sarcasm ahead. Though honestly, you should just spoil yourself to give yourself a reason to never play this game and just buy the artbook for Kagerou’s pretty artworks….as that is basically this game’s only SAVING GRACE (PUN INTENDED) (；´Д｀) Everyone else feel free to skip to my final
rage thoughts. But remember folks, just because I didn’t like it, doesn’t mean that YOU shouldn’t like it. This is after all just my personal opinion and experience with the game! Continue reading “Otome Game Review: Queen of Flowers”
