[NSFW] Taimanin Yukikaze 2 Review

I am really sorry for being inactive(シ_ _)シ, but I was just too busy with other activities. Actually, the truth is that I had written an “interesting” post, but I chickened out at the last minute and decided not to post it. I definitely don’t want Amaenboda to turn into a creepy blog (/ω\). Perhaps, one day I may get around uploading that article, but that is a completely different story.

However, just like how I was planning to publish that post in the beginning but never made it in the end, this one is exactly the opposite. I did not plan to review this game, Taimanin Yukikaze 2 (対魔忍ユキカゼ2), until I finished it yesterday at two in the morning. I believe just from that sentence itself, you can tell that my response to this game is very positive. So without further ado, let us get started.

I hope everyone will be able to enjoy their stay here, お手柔らかにお願いします。

[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。

[NSFW] An Incoming Trend to Corruption

Just like fashion that keep on changing, so do エロゲ. Majority of you will probably disagree with me since I often heard people complaining about how エロゲ development has become stagnant and its market is dying. While it is true that there has not been any major change in gameplay and players’ expectation is ever increasing with each エロゲ masterpiece, in my opinion it is all a matter of perspective.

Look at it this way, western clothes(洋服) have remained pretty much the same for a very long time: one hole for inserting your head and two for inserting your arms.  Despite of this, new fashions never stop emerging and there are always people out there who thirst for the newest wrinkles. We can take this same logic and apply it here, where fashions to western clothes is fetishes to エロゲ. In other word, it does not matter if the gameplay stays the same or if the story is not as good, but as long as the fetishes that decorate a game are still up to date, there will be people who are willing to buy it.

Fetish may sounds like a big word which usually comes with these images of hardcore S&M, Mind Break and Corruption. However, it can also refer to more subtle sexual/non-sexual preferences such as ツンデレ, 獣耳, 絶対領域, JK, etc. In fact, I remember when I took my first step into エロゲ world, many games have a ツンデレheroine because apparently it was the booming fetish at the time. ツンデレ was then slowly replaced by other デレ such as ヤンデレ and ダンデレ for a short while and they later gave way to the re-emerging of 妹 and the incoming of 男の娘.

[NSFW] Review – Grimoire no Shisho

WARNING: Another NSFW post. Although this is a VANILLA game (mostly), reader discretion is still advised.

Fuzzy here again! This time, I’m posting solo. You may have seen my previous contributions to the blog as a guest or my name in the comments sections. After some discussion, Aero offered to add me to the team so that I’ll stop nagging him in order to diversify the blog. I can’t promise I’ll post consistently, but surely with FOUR lazy bums on one site, the blog will appear more active right? ….right? <_<
Anyway, as long as there are eroge I find interesting that haven’t been reviewed to death, I will gladly post something.

The problem is…I haven’t been playing anything review worthy! So I planned to do a filler post on a nukige since it’s been a few months since the last nsfw post (<– making excuses). Grimoire no Shisho was made by Astronauts: Alya, one of three teams of the parent brand Astronauts (founded by former Atelier Kaguya employees). Regardless of what the cgs imply, this game is VANILLA. However, there are avoidable game overs with scenes tailored for the dark side. I played all the Astronauts games to date and enjoyed Alya’s debut title Spocon!.

So I expected Grimoire to be another nukige with a fantasy setting, instead I got an eroge with an identity crisis. Specifically, I encountered the timeless issue of how to treat a nukige (or is it?) that puts effort into the scenario and world building. (By effort, I mean above the usual bottom of the barrel standards.)

Magic exists in the world of Grand Esteca. There’s a magic library in the town of Altrium where all books of sorcery are kept. There resides a closely guarded book 30 floors underneath the library: the powerful book of sorcery, Grimoire, within which was sealed the demon who unleashed his fury in a war long ago. However, now he is merely a perverted demon with no dignity whatsoever. The librarian Mihai loves reading books and came upon and became friends with Grimoire. He respected the demon despite his current situation due to his immense magical knowledge. However, one day, someone stole these pages of knowledge from Grimoire and they ended up dispersed in other continents. It might cause a new world war to break out. Concerned about the situation, the sage Maynard ordered Mihai to recover the pages. (Borrowed from Micchi)

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。
