Robotics;Notes Review

2015-07-05-004352

The success of Steins;Gate brought upon a successor with an ambitious budget, boasting animated 3D models instead of static sprites, anime cutscenes, and a bunch of side element like mini-games and an in-game VR app that adds on to the “game” part of the ADV. It gets so caught up in its side features that it forgets why its predecessor was so successful, in fact!

Kurogane Kaikitan – thoughts

2015-03-26-193640

I don’t think many people bothered with this, thanks to being a console-original galge for the PS Vita coming from an eroge company. Everyone is either waiting for a PC port with ero added in (quite likely, I and the rest of 2ch think), or simply ignored it in favor of Anegin, which was hyped up as a collaboration between Takahiro (Majikoi) and Ou Jackson (Oretsuba). Kurogane Kaikitan is supervised by Takahiro, but the scenario is actually written by Sakaki Kasa, who is known for Tsujidou-san no Jun’ai Road (as well as Majikoi S and Tsuyokiss 3-gakki). Kurogane was made with a CS audience in mind, so while its characters and interactions are created with a similar feeling to its parent company’s works, it also takes on a more serious, action-packed story. For a direct comparison, it has a similar tone to Majikoi’s Agave route all the way through.

Genkai Tokki Moero Chronicle Review

moero-chronicle

The second game in Compile Heart’s Genkai Tokki series, following the card-battle game Monster Monpiece. This series has a particular focus on monster girls, with its defining aspect being the Mune Kyun Scratch mini-game where you hold the Vita sideways and touch or rub the screen to find the girls’ weak points. While the first game was a collectible card-battle game, Moero Chronicle shifts to the Dungeon RPG genre and boasts 50 playable characters.

Memories Off 6 T-Wave – thoughts

2015-02-23-185947

I bought this in last year’s 5pb sale along with Yubikiri no Kioku and shoved it in the backlog until now. The full package is Memories Off 6 Complete, which bundles the base game with the fandisc. It’s the 6th game in the Memories Off series, which had typically placed an emphasis on its realistic setting free of absurd elements and natural characters. The first Memories Off featured a protagonist who still feels the effects of the death of his girlfriend. The second game started with a unique situation in which the protagonist and main heroine were already dating. Yubikiri no Kioku (otherwise known as the 7th game) gave the hero a fiancee who sticks to him like glue, a girl who blackmails him for free housing, and a heavy past that ties it all together. This game? It’s a typical school life romance.

Fuuraiki – A galge where you hit the roads of Hokkaido

2015-02-02_14-25-21

In the thriving era of console galge where eroge ports did not make up the majority of releases, school life stories reigned king. From Tokimeki Memorial to Memories Off, the cute 2D girl in a colorful school uniform became the face of the genre. Then it is to no surprise that when F.O.G, a company that claims to be the opposite of trendy, comes out with a game whose cover is a realistic photograph of a road and some grass, it didn’t generate much talk. The game and its premise is something that you’ll find only when you’re looking for it on purpose, and I’m pretty sure that the amount of people looking for a game about meeting 2D girls while traveling through Hokkaido in a Google Street View-esque system is far from high. But that’s just what makes the game stand out in the sea of school-life galge, along with the fact that F.O.G is still alive today.

Great Edo Blacksmith – Impressions

2015-02-01-193049

I did one out of the three routes in the game and decided to write something about it, since it’s unlikely that I’ll go back for the others.

The official genre is “Women and Money Simulation,” which is more or less spot-on with the exception that you don’t really do any simulation with the “women” part outside of the first month since you have to pick a girl early on and stick with her for the rest of the game. You’re an unnamed blacksmith fated to die in exactly one year due to an incurable disease. Since you’re going to die soon, why not just use the time you have left to play around and be irresponsible with your life? …Or so an agent of the 嬢郭 (Red Light District-like place) says, introducing you to three beautiful ladies who work there.

Games I didn’t write about last year

I’ve been slowly dying off due to university, evident by the decreased frequency of updates by the second half of the year. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t play any games. In fact, I probably played more, but was too lazy to write about them.

Warning: Huge wall of text.

Criminal Girls: Invitation Review

2014-12-17-204028

A dungeon-crawling RPG where you use various methods of torture on teenage girls to get them to learn battle skills. Developed by Imageepoch (known for the Luminous Arc series, and more infamously, Time and Eternity) and published by Nippon Ichi Software. It looks low budget like a cheap fanservice game, and while I wouldn’t argue against such accusations, I also found much enjoyment in it as a light RPG that’s reasonably balanced and easy to get into without having to make huge commitments or decisions. This might interest those who want a simple and straightforward RPG with some lewd mini-games.

A Bunch of Mini Reviews

Writing 1000+ word posts for everything I played recently is too troublesome so here’s a collection of short impressions. There’s a bunch of stuff I played, but didn’t write a proper review for when I was still motivated. Basically scrap review bin for mostly VNs.
