It sure has been a while since I last posted something here. Though in saying that, I don’t see any of the others around, so yeah =D
So Getchu 2014 rankings are out. Last year for the 2013 rankings, I somehow managed to get all the guys together (Aedes, Fuzzyhobo, and Aqua) to contribute to a post. Sadly, I can’t be stuffed doing that this time, so you’ll just have to settle with me.
This post contains major spoilers for this game, so proceed at your own risk.
So it’s time for the long awaited A-4 disc which holds routes for Rinchuu and Homura. I’m sure a lot of people were looking forward to this disc because it they focus on the characters from the west and those that are part of the “Ryouzanpaku”. Both these groups of characters made their biggest appearances in Majikoi-S, and have since been briefly scattered about the other discs in the A-series. However we look into that side of the world in a lot more detail in this disc.
It is a common practice to divide a writing into three parts and call it a trilogy. That was why having only written two posts on introduction to corruption gave me this urge to pick up my stylus and write down this third and last piece. While that was an easy decision to make, laying out the exact details of what to write was surprisingly hard because I was faced with a dilemma. On one hand, I wanted to make this last part as conclusive as possible, but on the other hand there were still so many things that I wanted to discuss. In the end though, I decided to go with the former since I realized that I can always write more about corruption under another title (intermediate corruption course… maybe(｀・ω・´)” ).
I have been very inactive as of late for various reasons. One of the reasons is that I’m currently working full time, so my free time is now limited. Also I haven’t really been playing all that much eroge recently either when I DO have free time.
A couple of weeks ago I started reading the manga Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari, and it left a very deep impression on me. It made me pissed off as hell, but it does so in a unique way that makes it awesome. So for the first time in a long time I found myself repeatedly re-reading the chapters of a manga. Unfortunately only 8 chapters are out atm, so re-reading had its limits. I later found out that the series originated from a web novel, which is in Japanese. Normally I avoid reading things with large amounts of text when there are no pictures, but I made an exception. And THAT is what has been taking up most of my time lately. However, I put my web novel reading on hold to play Yakimochi Stream.

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
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。
Release Date: 2014/06/27
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.
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
