Thoughts on Majikoi A-4

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.

[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。

[NSFW] Shin Shirogane no Soleil -ReANSWER- Review

Sup people! aquaspirit39 is back and with a proper game review too! Before I get started with this review though, I would like to apologize to all Amaenbo followers and fellow bloggers alike for my inactiveness these past few months. I have been extremely busy preparing for my GMAT examination and MBA program applications. In fact, I decided to write this review partly for the purpose of practicing my writing skill( ̄~ ̄;)

Anyway, what I have here is a review on SkyFish latest installment of Soleil series, 新・白銀のソレイユ -ReANSWER-. Excluding this new one, there are four other titles in Soleil franchise: 白銀のソレイユ-Successor of Wyrd《運命の継承者》-, 鋼炎のソレイユ-ChaosRegion-, 蒼穹のソレイユ ~FULLMETAL EYES~ and 虹翼のソレイユ-ⅶ’s World-.

While out of these four SkyFish products, I have only played the most recent one: 虹翼のソレイユ-ⅶ’s World-, it is memorable enough that I decided to give their new title a try.

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。

GEARS of DRAGOON ~Meikyuu no Ouroboros~ [Partial Review]

aquaspirit39 here! How are you guys doing?

I understand that it has been a while since I write a proper full review, but unfortunately, as the title suggested, this too will not be a full review since it will only cover the Chaos Route. After all, it took me one whole week of ten to twelve hours of daily gaming just to achieve 100% Chaos Route and there is no way I am going to spend another one week just to get to the Law ending. Actually, it will most likely be less than that since I have cleared all the sidequests but with May and June 2013 エロゲ out, I think it is a good time to move on to other games.

Despite of my all blabbering at the previous paragraph, I just realize that I have failed to introduce the game that I am going to review, so let me do it now:

GEARS of DRAGOON ~迷宮のウロボロス~ is a dungeon-crawling turn-based RPG エロゲ made by a company called ninetail which I doubt many of you guys are familiar with. As a matter of fact,  this is actually my first time playing their game. Although for those of you who know about VenusBlood series by dualtail, you may have heard of this company which is supposed to be the elder sister company of dualtail. While dualtail specializes on hardcore エロス, ninetail focuses more on normal エロゲ.

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

Short Impressions on Several Recent Games

It is my philosophy to finish all routes of a game before writing a review on it and exactly because of this I have not been able to post any review this past few months. This month is not especially different, although I manage to secure enough time to go through several games, capturing heroines that I was not particularly fond of sounds like a big waste to me. On other hand, I feel that not writing anything about these game is also not fair because they are actually good games. So instead of writing a full reviews or not writing any reviews at all, I settled with on a middle ground: a post with short impressions for all the games.

Twins N’ Stuff

Recently I’ve been busy all over the space-time continuum saving lolis (and humanity as well I guess) from terroristsorcs, mutants, aliens, superpowered villains, and other menaces, in a beta testing frenzy. But now that I’ve gotten bored of them, I figured I may as well announce my return with a post that I have a feeling is going to end up much more of a rant than anything. Sorry Aero, aqua, and other people who may have been waiting for a post from me, this is only a few …months late. Though, better late than never!

Now I shall spend the rest of the post explaining why you should blame everything on Kurafuta.

I’ll also be saying a few words to make it look like I’m actually doing stuff around here =D. 

Repeat yourself much?

Shiden ~ Enkan no Kizuna ~ Review

It may be a little late but…Welcome to a brand new lamia, uh…I mean snake year 2013!

Speaking of a new year, it is often associated with new aspirations, new resolutions and…new エロゲ〜( ̄▽ ̄〜) (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜. Nonetheless, I feel that re-challenging some of the older games that I have not managed to finish is as important and for this reason, I decided to open my 2013 erogaming with an old game that I have dropped in the past.

Shiden ~Enkan no Kizuna~ is the title of this game which I have attempted once before, but was unable to bring myself to complete it. It is not because this game has a poor storylines or boring heroines; it is a more basic and fundamental problem that I was having: I had no idea what the stories is about!

This game was released on the 26th of November 2009, which was approximately four months after I started my career as an erogamer. Naturally, my Japanese was not very good at the time and ATLAS was not of much a help either. After several gameplay hours, I found that I barely understood what was going on and eventually chose to drop the game.

About three and a half years have passed since then and my Japanese has improved considerably too….maybe( ̄~ ̄;). Therefore, I see this as a good opportunity to gauge my current Japanese language proficiency while enjoying some actions and chuunis. Hopefully this time around, I will be able to have a better grasp of what is happening in this game.

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