Review – Pretty x Cation 2

Surprise! Fuzzy’s back from the grave! I had a brief respite from work and got in some eroge time! While everyone else played the arguably better releases of April, I chose to continue the site’s tradition of Cation reviews with Aero’s blessing. As many of you know, Pretty x Cation 1 was painfully average or a traumatic letdown compared to Lovely x Cation. Some players have probably sworn the series off for good.

However, when I saw the new heroines, the new artist, and E-mote, I thought maybe…just MAYBE…the developers did better this time. So is PxC2 a story of redemption? Or does the cycle of hatred repeat? A little of both!

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

Aero-ge impressions: Natsu no Ame and Koikishi

First off, thank you all for the kind words for my first review. It was a pleasant surprise to have such a great introduction to the world of blogging. I’ve been getting myself settled into the blog; I’ve put up my eroge list and anime list, give it a look if you’re interested XD.

Following last week’s uplift, I’ll be doing two mini impressions this time. They aren’t as long as a review, so I won’t give an overall score. To give an idea whether you should play the game, I’ve included a “Final thoughts” section.

First up Natsu no Ame

Natsu no AmeSousuke enjoys his school life with Midori, his close friend, Hinako, his old friend, and Kazushi, his best friend. But one day, he meets a girl when he gets home. Her name is Rikako. She is beautiful, but looks cold. His mother says, “This is your older sister.” “My sister?” “My father passed away the other day.” His parents divorced when he was a kid and Rikako is actually his father’s second wife’s daughter. According to his father’s will, she just comes to his place to live there. “You take care of her.” “Me…?” “Of course. She is your older sister, but she is a complete stranger to me,” his mother says. Rikako says, “You can ignore me. I won’t disturb you.” Like this, Sousuke starts living with Rikako…
