guys I solved it I solved it, I finally know why mmorpgs make female armor so skimpy     Sharty's face is just priceless

Picked up, or rather finally started Ace Attorney trilogy on my 3DS. Finished the first game, in the middle of Ep1 of the 2nd game, which is atm a shame because i expected Phoenix to start off veteran

Only for H-scenes. Edit: Most VNs have some kind of flash or pause that occurs at the end of h-scenes... it isn't always obvious, but once you've picked up the knack for it, it is easy to stop th

I don't remember that ending. Do you get it by missing the clue on the skirt pocket in the first case or by missing the meeting with the forensics doctor on a especific day in the second case? Those are the only two instances where i recall people getting REALLY stuck on.

 

misremembered who the girl was

Spoiler

It was Onihime or someone, the student council president

Also who was I supposed to pick for

If i'm not mistaken, you have to pick the missing girl and talk to the kendo club chick in the girls academy because she has a paper with the handwriting of said missing girl.

Just finished Nobel works and I have to say I liked it alot, probably due to the setting it was in, its a totally new setting and most of the people(except that one person you know) are totally unfamiliar to you, so there are no childhood friends or that one close friend of yours around to make it stereotypical,and I like the idea of meeting new people without some bland narrative introduction when it comes to characters.Humor was great, made me laugh alot and there were a lof ot those moments. The common route was probably one of the best I have read ,filled with interaction with all the characters,and I actually like it alot, because when it ended and you have to pick a girl, its kind of sad because you don't get to spend time with all of the other characters, so it kind of neglects some people despite the the fact that they are in close proximity and all go to the same school. The art was great, and the music was really good, liked it alot , first Yuzusoft game, and I like the company already, probably going to try some of their other games when I'm in the mood. Going to play Evenicle, though I'm not really a big fan of alicesoft, but the rpg part attracted me, so here goes to a lot of time that I'm going to spend on a game,spent 100 hours on kamidori, and that was only just one route...I hope there isn't that much grinding...but when you complain about grinding in a rpg...pointless.

I enjoyed Lucid 9 a lot but

 

Be warned, it will put through the emotional wringer


The slice of life parts made me care and fall in love with the characters, the dialogue is sharp and often hilarious, and I liked the parts where you had to think/deduce to solve the mystery, almost in an Ace Attorney like way.

Oh good, I downloaded it earlier today so I look forward to having a good cry.

Played Accidental Demon Slayers today. It's a Ren'Py one, and a bit rough around the edges in the presentational/spelling department for it, but it was alright. Good bit of fun, and some quite amusing parodying of typical horror tropes made it a laugh in parts.

Definitely gonna get around to Tokyo Babel in the next few days. Definitely. If I remember.

Finished Kara no Shoujo over the weekend. 

Spoiler

Okay first the general impressions, so those that couldn't stop themselves from opening the spoiler-tag won't get spoiled.

Gotta love the production values. Good music, art and high-quality sprites... Even the scaling algorithms or whatever are really good. Unlike many others, KnS actually looks really good when scaled the full-screen 1080p resolution. Well, apart from text.

The investigations and figuring out the mystery was done pretty well, and apart from certain questionable design decision I really liked that aspect of KnS. Being able to make mistakes in crime scene investigations I can still understand, but making critical information only available for certain day and certain place is just bullshit. Anyways, apart from the few pitfalls I didn't have that much problem with the mystery parts, in fact I wouldn't have minded having to speculate and make my own connections more.

Also thank god the sex is toned down from Cartagra. Although the one scene from the common route made laugh quite hard. "Oh, I guess since there's sex now I must have picked correct choices this time", was how I felt.

Then for the really spoilery parts, and for the whole game. Be aware.

Spoiler

The first case was pretty good introduction for the whole thing and really smooth experience overall. The mistakes I made were totally my fault and mystery was pretty gripping. Only thing that bothered me was how abruptly and roughly they dropped the fact that Orihime was behind Prostitution ring. I guess there might be more info on her route/ending, but from the parts I read it really felt like they didn't addressed this enough. Other than that, I really enjoyed the "Divine Comedy" allusions and detective work near the end of the chapter was in my opinion the best the game offered. Not too obvious, but it also didn't rely on too obtuse or confusing details.

And of course it doesn't end that easily. The second case was fun as well, but as some of you might have guessed, the constant skipping and being stuck on the same bad end kind hampered the experience. Doubly so when I started questioning my own conjectures after being stuck so long and making wrong choices thanks to that. But there were good parts as well. The deaths in the first chapter felt kind of distant most of the time, but thankfully(?) Tojiko's death actually fit pretty hard. Poor girl. Other than, my memories of the middle part are kind of mess because of all the skipping, but the end of that chapter and how it led to the final legs of the game were pretty interesting.

The final part really jumpstarted in a wild way and went to pretty unexpected directions. All the interweaving relationships and revelations felt pretty overwhelming at first, but also brought a sense of fulfillment when the parts finally started to fit together. Some of things and how it all ties back to the cases six years ago felt kind of unreal and little lackluster, but that didn't really hinder my enjoyment. Especially the classic "detective collects everyone involved together and explains everything"-scene in Mamiya household was pretty cool.

All in all Kara no Shoujo was really good experience. Not too long, pretty well focused and apart from few hiccups, a satisfying story to solve and experience. The ending I got was some kind of normal ending, I think, so now I'll just have to see what kind of secrets Toko's ending contains. 
 

And oh, if I had to name favorite characters, I guess Yukari would be pretty high up there. Platonic and normal little sisters are kind of rarity in VNs, so it's really nice too see a good one. The samurai-girl Ayumu also managed to catch my interest, but that might have more to do with my hopeless preference for minor side characters.

Been playing kimisora this weekend, really like it so far. The characters are great, the music is really nice and soothing and the art is pretty good. Matsuri and An are by far the best characters so far.

Haven't gotten too far into it, but it's been quite entertaining from the start. Kind of a unique twist to the very normal, over used school setting.

An is definitely one of my new favorite imouto characters. Kawaii! :kosame:

Playing Code Realize: ~Guardian of Rebirth~ because why not :makina: 

Misc. Thoughts/First Impressions

Spoiler

Set in the 1850s London or whatever (very, very similar overall setting as Shikkoku no Sharnoth, hell the first Chapter is called Steam London) we play as Cardia, a beautiful young lady and a typical stoic who has been living in isolation in her Father's mansion for god knows how long because he left her a note saying to do so. The (typical) twist? She only remembers the most recent two years of her life. 

WNhCpRl.jpg (960×544)
Damn amnesiac protagonists.

Oh, and apparently she's a monster. Exactly what kind of 'monster' we're talking about is to be determined, but so far we know something something her blood is poisonous and she will kill anyone by simply touching them. Hmm, sounds familiar to a certain Key heroine, anybody?  
Gywrrq6.jpg (960×544)
Yup. 100% legit Monster right here

So here we have the Royal Guard arrive at the mansion to capture Cardia for whatever heinous plots they're concocting, and after their attack dog foolishly jumps onto Cardia and bites her only to have its face melt off, they kindly ask her to accompany them.
PIlsOkE.jpg (960×544)
Rude.

And so they begin to haul her back to their evil headquarters to begin their evil plot for world domination, but they are intercepted by the poster male hero, Arsene Lupin, a chivalrous self-proclaimed thief with a heart of gold. He does some fancy aerobatics, voice impressions, and tosses a smoke grenade to put the Royal Guard into confusion and disarray, allowing him to snatch Cardia away from them. She tries to resist because she's afraid of killing him, but of course he just goes playa-style and yolo grabs her hand anyways, and the two take off.

prQnUb1.jpg (960×544)
Where's mah H-scene >:c 

They have some short banter where Lupin, being all high and mighty on his hero mode, tells Cardia he will grant her a single wish. Her wish is, not surprisingly, a poetic one: having lived a life of isolation due to her touch-me-and-you-die nature, she simply wishes to be able to physically touch someone and form a close bond with them. Hooray for logically explained romance!
VK92VLm.jpg (960×544)
AGAIN, WHERE'S MAH H-SCENE!?

Fast forward and we've reached infodump time: Cardia is the daughter of Isaac Beckford, some world-renowned scientist who has gone into hiding after having just created the first eternal heart- the Horologium- a heart that beats forever. And apparently it's etched onto Cardia's body- the source of her poisonous blood and amnesiac status? Probably. It's also the reason the Royal Guard wanted to take her into custody, and why Lupin himself stole her from them.
6lm7wP2.jpg (960×544)
And yes, Cardia totally strips naked when showing Lupin the Horologium. Again, damn Amnesiacs! You lost your memory, not your common sense!@#

So Lupin then kneels over and proposes to Cardia *cough* I mean asks for her help in searching for her Father and solving the mystery of the Horologium and whatnot. And we're given our first choice!

Finally finished all routes of Aoishiro now. The VN was overall very well done with surprinsingly high production values. I really loved the mysterious atmosphere and the whole Japanese mythology theme. I don't remember a lot of VN's about ancient Japanese legendary creatures and Shinto gods like Bishamonten or Susanoo. The VN also had some pretty epic fights to offer that almost recalled fond memories of F/SN.

Unfortunately, the biggest weakness of the VN is that most routes including the true route are very similar to each other which made them kind of repetitive to read. I still enjoyed them because I liked the characters, atmosphere and the mythologic theme of the story.

Favorite girls: Kohaku > Migiwa = Nami > Yasumi > Kaya

It was also quite refreshing to see a ninja girl who wasn't just included for horizontal business. ^_^

Overall I'd rate it a 7.5, but it could have easily gotten more if it wouldn't be for the far too similar routes.

So, next on my reading list is Tokyo Babel...

Kara no Shoujo is coming along somewhat nicely.

Spoiler

I haven't gotten any "normal" ending yet. If I can, I want Kyoko's ending (edit: just checked the walkthrough and I think I kinda fucked up on that front lol).

Toko's pretty nice, character art overall is wonderful.

Stella best girl

I just got to the part where things have calmed down incredibly (after Tatsuhiko offs himself). I got the variation where Kazuna's uterus and leg were taken, but I did have a save and went the other way as well.

Does that choice matter much in the grand scheme of things? Which one should I pick? Just encountered an old man in the Mamiya Shinzo exhibit, how much time do I have left until I get an ending?

Glad you liked Stella, one of my favourites. ^^

Rest in spoiler:

Spoiler

Variation with chopped Kazuna is great, but you can't get a true ending with this. It only gets you as far as 'normal', if I recall correctly.

You're around 60-70% of the plot right now. Tatsuhiko death is like right in the middle.

This game suffers from it's construction. A lot of repetition only to get one of two scenes, and really convoluted choices to get ending you want. Just read, enjoy, and after your first normal end just go with a walkthrough to clear this game. It will take a few hours.

 

Did you had any h scenes with Main Toko?

Spoiler

Her hymen-breaking growl was beautifull. Not high pitched yell, but just pure growl. I loved it. :P

I started Noble Works and let's just say I've made a decision to stop playing moege for a while because Noble Works' common route is one of the most difficult things I've had to get through when it comes to VNs. Stupid misunderstandings, cringey walk in scenes, "comedy," and generic heroines is how I'd describe Noble Works' common route.

Twinkle Crusaders. Just finished my first route (Nanaka).

The battlesystem is kinda stupid, but the comedy is good and the characters are so fluffy sweet, it's balm for the soul.

Glad to see someone playing this.  I enjoyed Princess Witches a lot, but could never quite get into Twinkle Crusaders.  It just went on and on and on...
