Aero-ge Review: PURE×CONNECT

Wow, this place has been weirdly active recently. I mean, four blog posts within a month? That’s our yearly quota done =D

Anyway, Smee is one my favourite companies, and I’ve really enjoyed their previous titles. Naturally, I had high hopes that the company would deliver another high quality slice of life game with PURExCONNECT. Did this happen?

Not really, but kinda.

Hayato has yearned for a heart-throbbing romance for a long time, but instead is bored wasting away time every day. He wishes to fall in love like in an eroge, but everyone around him just makes fun of him for it. But that’s what every guy wants, right? Is it really so wrong to want such a relationship?

In the middle of November, a small chance appeared when he was asked to work part-time at the popular bakery restaurant, La Pivoine. Finding himself in a situation he never imagined being in, he thought to break free of his current norm. He agreed to work there and acquainted himself with the staff: Sora, his osananajimi who has no interest in falling in love; Shiho, the store manager whose lover is her job; Moemi, the moodmaker part-timer who treasures her family over all; Arisa, his kouhai who hasn’t found her ideal partner; and, Ayumi, his cousin who is still early for love.

Finally, he takes the first steps towards his own love.

Aero-ge review: Fureraba ~Friend to Lover~

Hey all! Sorry for how dead the place has been lately. I for one have been super busy with lots of random crap like university and getting my second time application for the JET programme ready. Don’t really know what the others are up to…especially Aedes >_____>. Seriously, does that guy even play eroge anymore? Rest assured that I’m still a hardcore ero-gamer and have finished the following games over the last few months:

Fureraba
Majikoi A-2
Hatsuyuki Sakura
Kanojo to Ore to Koibito to.
Papa Doki! ~Papa ga Daisuki Dakedo, Kazoku Dakara Mondai Nai yo ne!~
Girls Be Ambitious!
To~mei Heaven!
Tsujidou-san no Virgin Road

I finished Fureraba quite a while back and had written like 50% of the review. But somewhere along the way I lost interest and it’s been half done in my drafts folder. Anyway, hope you don’t mind a review on something that’ s a little old ^^

It’s spring once again and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. It’s the season of the beginning of a new life. The protagonist has lots of fun being with his guy friends, but he wishes for something more: a girlfriend! It’s not only him that has these kind of feelings; the girls around him also feel the same way. He aggressively pursues those close to him since love won’t come to those who wait.

Dousei LoverAble Impression

As you can see, the blog underwent a major redesign, hopefully for the better! Feel free to vent your frustrations regarding the new theme in the comments below, or of course you can declare your eternal love for it as well. My eroge progress has been really slow lately, thanks to the godforsaken papers I had to write. But now that the papers are done with, it’s time for me to jump on the Hatsuyuki Sakura bandwagon! But before that, I want to wrap things up a bit so I can jump into it headfirst without worrying about my post count or the lack thereof. And this is where this Dousei LoverAble impression, and Kaho, come in.

I’m here this time as well XD. Having played the game as well I couldn’t resist giving my 2cents here and there.
