Due to new company firewall policies, I can no longer visit the MTF from my office (along with many other sites, which sucks) so my presence is has become even thinnier than it used to be, but I'm working on a solution, hence this post.

So, I completed 『AR ~ 忘れられた夏 ~』 and, wow, I was impressed, way more than I expected. Truth to to said, the game's first chapter is incredibly deceptive, being best described as an over the top ridiculous love comedy, so much over the top I did think about giving it up and play something other. It being somewhat related to 『水夏 ~Suika~』 both made me want to give it up, because 『水夏 ~Suika~』 was such a heavy, serious game whilst 『AR ~ 忘れられた夏 ~』 seemed to ridiculously comedic and over the top, and decided m to keep playing, because I believed a game "related to 『水夏 ~Suika~』" couldn't possibly be that bad.
I'm glad I kept playing.
So, the game started as what seemed to be an over the top ridiculous love comedy. Then, slowly, things happened, and it became an end-of-the-world adventure story, then slowly and slowly, a story to save mankind from eternal damnation and from hell taking over. As the story progressed, as the first chapter made sense, comedy was replaced by despair, less and less hope remained as the story went, until all the named characters in the game died. \o/
In a nutshell, it was a wonderful ride~
In most galgames I play, I have a girl I easily prefer above the others. Somehow, I like that my feelings were so... balanced in 『AR ~ 忘れられた夏 ~』, leaving me unable to choose between three girls. I like the girl who offered to be sent to hell in order to save her beloved, to shoulder all the pain and sadness of mankind for the whole eternity, to be forever alone, yet to never complain about this fate she accepted. I like the girl whose life was so miserable that when another girl went with death in her place so that she would remain alive to protect the protagonist, considered said girl didn't save her but cursed her to keep living, to be refused eternal rest until the protagonist died, and whose life you followed so you could perfectly understand why she'd think so. And I like the manipulative, lying bitch of a girl, who used just about every main character in the story, then pretty much betrayed and caused all of their deaths, as it was her intend from the start, especially since she did actually care about all of them but had sworn an oath to save the world.
That being said, despite this game being very high in my list of games with the most filled with despair and hopelessness story, I think it may be possible to consider it ended happily. Sorta. I mean, sure, probably over 90% of mankind was killed and sent to hell but there are survivors... probably. And the main villain is out of the picture! ...I think. Sure, all the named characters are dead but the epilogue takes place in the afterworld, in the instant between death and reincarnation and they "exist" happily there. Kinda. Well, it's heavily hinted that it's the instant between death and reincarnation, so it won't last long before everyone is reincarnated but, heh, it happens. Well, OK, nothing guarantees that anyone will be happy in in their next life, but nothing guarantees they will be unhappy either! (except for the protagonist who is apparently out of the reincarnation loop)
So, yeah, let's say the ending is kinda happy.
Since its a circus game, there's a possibility the game ll be released outside of Japan and if that happens, I strongly recommend it, especially to people like, say, Ranwan, in order to correctly place it on the Olf-Ranwan scale. tongue.gif

Oh, yeah, I think I gave it a 9. Or mayhap a 9.5. Not sure any longer; have to check.

Anyway, now playing 『輝光翼戦記 天空のユミナ』, if only because it's supposed to be released soon (?) in the USA by Jast! Since it was made by some of the Aselia team, obviously the game and its system have a strong Aselia and Spitan feel~ So far, I love the system and one girl (coincidentally, she's the manipulative, magnificent bitch) but, alas, I just dislike the main girl!! Oh, well, we'll see~

After having long since acquired the patches (JP voice, English text, and conversion to All-Ages Edition), I've finally started playing Kanon. As this is only the second VN I've really decided to delve into, I have high hopes that it'tl be as enjoyable (if not moreso) than playing Ever17: Out of Infinity.

Having marathoned the 2002 anime series, and having watched the 2006 series as it came out, I've long wanted to play this VN, so at long last!

My only regret so far is that I didn't *purchase* the game yet. (My sig says exactly how I feel about purchasing media where and when reasonably possible.)

Why am I not surprised this is one of the few active threads on the forum? tongue.gif

Trying to support the few companies that do VN translations, like JList and Mangagamer. Pretty cool to see Shuffle and Higurashi available. Ordered Saya No Uta as well.

I've been very busy the past months, so I only recently finished 『輝光翼戦記 天空のユミナ』 (that, and mad levelling-up). Since it will be released one daysoon in English, I'll try not to spoil it "at all" with my comments. Let's say the system wasn't too bad, even though incredibly frustrating at times. I don't think I ever swore that much against a game because its system favoured so much the enemies! Story and character-wise, there was one girl whose personality I just wasn't able to like (because I found her to be incredibly boring, flat [no, not in that meaning], and insipid) and whose story I found way too "shounen-manga" (i.e. a boring, large ham), one I found so-so (though I'd agree she was the most hilarious character in the whole game, thanks to her... obsession ^^;;;;;), and another I just loved... and that was absolutely unrelated to the fact she was a manipulative bitchmotivating leader, animated by hatred and revengelove and setting right what went wrong, and whose story contained the highest named characters body countbest treatment of the named characters, really. More because she was frankly very darkcool a character, wielding a cool weapon instead of the boring, stereotypical ones. Totally my kind of girl, ufufu~ wub.gif
8/10 for the whole game, individual scores being (character/story): 6/6.5, 8.5/7.5, and 10/10. Bonus points for the SD character parts.

Now playing the fandisk, 『輝光翼戦記 天空のユミナFD -ForeverDreams-』. Apparently, it'll focus more on some side characters of the main game. Considering I liked them more than one of the heroines (WAY more), I think I'll enjoy it~

Yesterday was a lazy Sunday, and so I started up Heartache 101 ~Sour into Sweet~. It's among my favorite freeware games of 2011. It includes complex gameplay, adjustable difficulty settings, and mod-friendly content. Haven't finished it yet, but I'm about halfway to a positive ending.

Trying out "Yin Yang Xchange" eroge, it's actually a decent story and pretty funny. Although the characters are walking tropes incarnate; but on the other hand it makes it easy to understand them.

Also working my way through Kirakira which I think is what if you had K-On! but you threw in a male character into the middle of it.

Eventually going to play Tsukihime, does it have FSN's Tiger Dojo?

Considering it was created before FSN, no, it doesn't. OTOH, you have Ciel-senpai's lessons...

Console-wise, I took out my Saturn (well, it's probably my favourite console, after all) and started (once again) 「悠久幻想曲 2nd Album」, with this time the firm intent to complete it (or, at least, to get all the girls), despite how long it'd take me. The decision was helped by me finding at long last a somewhat complete kouryaku~ \o/
Too bad that Claire's, my favourite girl, ending reads :

Oh well... Me and often falling for sub-characters... wink.gif Albert, why do you have such a cute little sister?

Laura~ Trisha~ Eve~ And, is it me, or is there really more subtext about you and Celine than there is with any other girl? ^^;;;;;;

*wonders a bit about how many know, or remember, about a 1997 game but...*
OTOH, it's the reason why to complete it takes a little time: they don't often make games with 10 main characters any longer~

Now that I'm reaching the completion of 『輝光翼戦記 天空のユミナFD -ForeverDreams-』, I'm wondering: should I play next a winter, seasonal game, an utterly depressing and depressive game, or a sweet, heartwarming, romantic love game? Between the three, my heart is torn~ tongue.gif

Tell me, guys, what do you think? Seasonal is, well, seasonal, I like depressive games whilst I could use the opportunity provided by a sweet, romantic love game to update the RAML picture... Then, of course, I'll have to choose whether to play a relatively recent game (2000+) or relatively old game (1995-2000), then which one exactly! sleep.gif
*sighs*
How hard can it be to be an erogamer? sad.gif

『輝光翼戦記 天空のユミナFD -ForeverDreams-』 was fun, Ai becoming de facto the best character because she was even more hilarious than she ever were, each scene featuring her being but hilarious! XD
An example of "Flanderization is not necessarily a bad thing", I guess.
Aside from that, Nayuta was a game breaker, but that was expectable. Lily was as well, but you can't have her in your team, so that's OK.

Anyway, next.
Going seasonal, nine years after the game was released, I'm now playing... SNOW, Studio Mebius' famous winter game~ \〇/
Since you apparently have to play the stories in order, I'll go Sumino, Asahi, Shigure, Ouka. I may try to post my feelings about the game as I play it, I'll see. From what I remember, it should be a story about forbidden love, eternal damnation and curses from the gods. In other words, a game like the ones I love~ \〇/

Relative in the glorious southern neighbor of the lland of the rising sun has asked me if I want Little Busters or Kud Wafter?

Current opinion is Little Busters! because I heard about the baseball mini-game.

Kud Wafter is also an omake game of sorts, so playing the main game beforehand may not be such a bad idea.

SNOW completed~ \o/
Now, on 『永遠の終りに』, from TamaSoft, mostly because I installed it last year because I mistook it for the other TamaSoft game, 『世界ノ全テ ~remind of you~』 and because, well, I like its name (and its character CGs, i.e. the girls are cute)~
Erogamescape gives it a mere 65 (whilst 『世界ノ全テ ~remind of you~』 gets a 79 and 『Snow ~ スノー』 a 80) but, blah, I'll see~

I just finished my first run through Christine Love's Analogue: A Hate Story. I was a big fan of Love's Digital, and the interface is similar (minus the retro graphics, of course), which is good and bad. I admire Love's storytelling and for $15 it's a good value.

Been playing Yume Miru Kusuri. It has been lauded as being really emotional or something? And I was in the mood for drama.

Instead my suspension of disbelief was strewn all over the floor or something.

So far I'm done with Aeka and Mizuki's route.

Despite being absolute pants on head crazy, I really liked Mizuki. Though when cocaine strangulation sex off a building into a pool happens... regardless of how crazy it was I pretty much liked her route.

Aeka's route was. Well. Yes I felt sorry for her and wanted to protect her but the whole bully side seemed kinda weak. Maybe Japanese school bullying is just on a whole new level, but when kids start bringing stunguns to school(are they that easy to get?) and the whole class uniting under a complete idiot just out of malice? Either way the bullying plot I've kinda seen a whole bunch of anime/manga so I was rolling my eyes at how cliche it all was rather than feeling touched. How it ended was just downright hilarious though.

Still have yet to do Nekoko's route, but I suspect its more interacting with a batshit insane girl than dealing with drug addiction issues. And I kinda want the later.

Now playing F&C 1998's game, PALETTE, a game that I've always wanted to play. Or so I'd like to say but it's been 14 years already since I bought it so such a sentence may sound... untrue. ^^;;;;;
I hope I won't meet too many problems playing it under XP...

It was short, it was simple, it was classical, it was light-hearted yet, ultimately, it was possibly not totally undeserving to be called enjoyable. \〇/

Going forward in time, I'm now playing ALICESOFT's PERSIOM -約束の集う場所- game from 2000. It's considered to be merely slightly above average in erogamescape but should be entertaining enough for the time being. I first hesitated between the (rumoured to be) way better games DiaboLiQuE or アトラク=ナクア but I eventually didn't find myself in the state of mind for such dark and heavy stories (albeit better games), not to mention for the latter's Visual Novel's nature, or even for the former AVG's nature. Nothing like a RPG to rest the mind! Besides, I like PERSIOM's graphics very much~ I'll leave games about damnation or spider-like human-eating eldritch abomination for later.

Just got done playing Edelweiss and Eiden Fantasia the fancreated sequel. Of the girls in Edelweiss I really enjoyed Ran's route, and I suppose it is something that Ran had more cg scenes than any other route. Natsume, Haruka and Mizuki had less scenes but some more tragic stories. The only route that didn't really grab me was Mei-sensei's route. That said, I was left in Edelweiss wanting to pursue two side characters Sakura and Rin. And Eiden Fantasia provided. Sakura's route was much fun, but I wasn't happy with Rin's route via contrived plot device. Too much lame plot and not enough Rin being Rin. That said, once completing both it unlocked the True End path. All dissatisfactions faded away.

I've finished three storylines (Emi, Shizune, Rin) of Katawa Shoujo かたわ少女. The writing is so good I keep taking screenshots of the text. The game stays on my mind when I'm not playing it, so I'm in pretty deep.

PERSIOM -約束の集う場所- done~
Now going back in time, because I've "always wanted to play it" (hahaha)..., it was released 14 years ago (^^;;;;;) and even its company died years ago. Oh, and I think I've always liked how its main girl (Alice) looks. Leaving aside modern or fantasy settings for a near future (2039), and romance or adventure stories for a cyberpunk one which may be darker than both, I'm now playing C' s ware luv wave, praying it works well on my current computer since it's a Windows 95/98 game. I know, I know: on one hand, I think I should play my XP/Seven games rather than to wait for their OSes to become outdated but, OTOH, I also think it's about time to play all my Win95/98 games! (To be honest, whilst it was released in 1998, I only bought it in early 2001 so it was only 11 years ago... It also means I'm somewhat going forward not backward in my game log, ufufu~)

Still going forward in time, I'm now playing Witch's Milkyway (with Voice) that was released in 2002, if only because Witch* died in 2005, meaning it'd be about time to play their games! After the dark and despair-filled luv wave, let's go back to a simple, fluffy romantic love game~ With a score of 68 at erogamescape, I don't expect it to be that good but it should fit the summer season~

Edit: it's in fact eerily fitting! The game starts on June, 20th, and it's a Wednesday! Just like now and this year! ohmy.gif

That, and give me an opportunity to post on the RAML. tongue.gif


The normal witch, not the little one, if you wondered which witch was the witch. Though it'd be about time for me to play my littlewitch games as well. ^^;;;;;;
