Have You Visited… “The Witch’s House”?

So the other day while I was on facebook, I saw that someone had mentioned a game called “The Witch’s Garden”. I had never heard of the game, and normally I don’t really pay much attention to this sorta thing. However before I knew it, I found myself googling  it, and even downloading it. Now I tend to forget about these ‘spur of the moment’ downloads, and they eventually end up in my recycling. This time was different, and oddly enough I opened this game up straight away to give it a try….

To my surprise, it was INTERESTING…in a creepy way

[NSFW] Semiramis no Tenbin Review

I am really sorry for being inactive these past few months, but as many of you have probably experienced, lifecan be such a bitch sometimes. Plagued with family problems at home and responsibilities at my new workplace, I barely have any time to play an eroge. With my current state, I am not exactly sure at what pace I will be able to write, though I am expecting things to settle down as I learn more of my new trade. Until then, I have faith in Aero that he will keep this place alive( ̄▽+ ̄*)

As suggested by the title, this post will be a review on a new game released by Caramel Box called Semiramis no Tenbin(セミラミスの天秤). If you are a newcomer like me, you probably have never played any game made by this company or even heard of Caramel Box to begin with. This is completely understandable as it has not released any new game since 処女はお姉さまに恋してる 2人のエルダー that came out four years ago. For this reason, you may not have any idea of what to expect out of this game and that is exactly where this review may come in handy.

Well, let us get the review started then. I hope everyone will be able to enjoy their stay here, お手柔らかにお願いします。

Death Gods, Fairies, and Love – A rant on Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura Doki

So I know that lots of people were highly anticipating this title, like me. Unfortunately, I was deeply disappointed when I finished this title, and have lots to say about it.

So this post is really more for those who have PLAYED the game, rather than those who are looking to do so. However, if you don’t mind being spoiled a bit, then feel free to read on.

Common route

Sakusaku is the second game where I played the trial before release date. THAT is how excited I was. I have to admit, this game’s common route is VERY strong. The “love bounty” placed on Yuuma was a very fresh idea, and I loved it. The common route introduces the heroines very well, and shows us how An is the WILD CARD of the lot. It’s interesting seeing An shaking things up, and dragging all the girls around Yuuma into the student council. Among other things, we learn about Yuuma and his quest to make those around him happy. It was hilarious how An “bans” love between members the moment Yuuma decides to join the student council in hopes to change himself, and maybe fall in love. The concept of Death Gods is lightly touched on; just enough to get you interested. Tina’s appearance as the “Love Fairy” was rather random, but they made it work.

So I was drawn in, and with the end of the common route, I found myself wanting a lot more. Fortunately, the full version of the game was released very soon after I finished the trial. It was around here when things started going downhill >______>. FML

Joint Review – Pretty x Cation

I honestly don’t know how I found the time to write this thing because I’ve been spending a hell of a lot of time watching The International recently. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, “The International” refers to the worldwide Dota 2 Tournament which is happening atm. I don’t play Dota 2, but I really enjoy watching it. My brothers are also fans, and I’ve been getting distracted from my eroge whenever I hear them watching a game.

Anyway it’s me (Aero) and Fuzzyhobo this time. I’m both the black and red text, while Fuzzy is the green text.

Fuzzy, again. Unfortunately, no 3-way like in our LxC2 review. I was working on my next review game (with my meager spare time…I travel a lot for my job), but I took a break for PxC…I regret that decision now.

Before we start bashing, I want to emphasize that PxC has a different staff from the previous LxC games. More importantly, they switched several major positions: Scenario, Director, Character Design, Art/CG, music, etc. (most likely leftovers from Akabeisoft3). So I wouldn’t say hibiki works has jumped the shark…yet…

“Bashing” is a little harsh don’t you think? I think “having nothing positive to say about the game” is better =D

CG Quality in the Future

Welcome to aqua’s pondering corner!O(≧▽≦)O

The original Ikusa Megami published in 1999 was Eushully debut game and fifteen years later we finally get a remake.

A Ero Rant: Doko no Donata no Kanjou Root

So after waiting a month for the other guys to write something, I finally caved and decided to get the job done myself.

Jokes aside, they haven’t been very actively lately. Most likely a couple of them are busy with Clover Days. I was also set to hop on the Clover Day’s train, and then somehow got side tracked into play DokoDona. So what made this happen?

……

…………

It was the OP >____>

So as usual when I play a game based pretty solely on the OP, it did not end well =(

Title

Description

Shouta’s mother is the Kaguya-hime from fairy tales. This spring, a new transfer student Tsubasa appeared in his class. In her previous life, she was a prince who were rejected by Kaguya-hime. She recognized features of Kaguya-hime in him and fell in love with him at first sight. However, her confession was stopped by other girls who used to be Kaguya-hime’s suitors and who held feelings for him.

Thoughts on Majikoi A-3

This post contains spoilers for this game, so proceed at your own risk.

Once again I would like to say that this post is in no way a review for A-3. This post summarizes parts of the route, and contains a lot of my personal opinions.

A-3 contains routes for Stacy, and Lee, who are maids of the Kuki Corporation. The game also has two after stories for Tsubame, one for each of her different dispositions.

Before I move onto talk about the routes, I’m sure that a lot of people were like me, and didn’t really expect much from A-3 because of the routes for Stacy and Lee. Hell, I know a lot of people wanted routes or after stories made for other characters. However to my pleasant surprise both Stacy’s and Lee’s routes turned out to be quite good.
