A list of reviews and things with slight resemblance to reviews that I’ve done. Ordered from oldest at the top of each section to newest at the bottom. Nowadays I don’t write about everything I play so it’s not a comprehensive list of games I’e played. Opinions and perspectives change over time (I am generally less harsh these days I think), but I left old posts up because they are likely an accurate reflection about what I felt at the time.
There are some posts where I just review a bunch of games in one, those are not listed here. Just search the “review” tag for a comprehensive list that is probably more up-to-date than this manually updated list.
(NC) – Not Cleared. Review written when I haven’t beat the game, and probably have no intentions of doing so.

I wonder what the criteria is for a Visual Novel that determines if it gets adapted into an anime or a hentai… Yosuga no Sora being adapted into an anime really broke some down a lot of those rules I think.
January 29, 2014 at 20:19
I don’t pay much attention to the adaptations so I still see it the same way I would see any other VN.
January 29, 2014 at 22:25
Oh, I judge the games on their own merits too, I just wrote a review on how Chaos;Head lost a lot of it’s followers because of it’s anime adaption. I would just be interested in how such a decision would go.
January 29, 2014 at 22:34
I don’t keep up with anime so I have no idea whether most adaptations are good or bad unless I hear them mentioned a lot. I did hear lots of bad things about C;H’s anime, but I don’t really see how a bad adaptation would turn off existing fans of the source material.
Of course, a bad anime will generally discourage newcomers from even trying the source material, so it is definitely detrimental to the series’ overall reputation.

It’s the same effect a movie gets if it has a bad sequel, it’s original doesn’t change but people’s view of it does.

Tell me if you mind me adding you do my blogroll.

Hi can you read japanese?
because you wrote japanese novel review.
what is the best game of pc eroge?
please, tell me
May 18, 2014 at 15:53
Depends on what kind of things you like/are looking for. Anything with a median of 85 or above with 800+ votes on EGS will probably be considered “best eroge” by a good number of people.

Should one have basic Japanese language understanding, to play some of the 18 and older novels?
are the games region free?

Dear awesome curry,
Just wanted to let u know that ur blog has been fascinating. I have similar tastes in games as u do, so i have found it supremely helpful to determine wat i get next or what to avoid.
Came for the galge review, stayed and read everything else. Yr writing style is quite entertaining to read as well. Pity i have no moonrune reading ability so cannot try some of ur recommendations.
Falcom kamige forever. Nakige and utsuge forever. Nukige….within limits xp. Look forward to ur next reviews and the next time ur reviews and my chosen games will cross paths.
