    If any of you are Zero Escape fans you might already know this, but Zero Time Dilemma, the third and final entry in the series, has finally gotten a release window, a trailer, and information regarding what the game will be like.

  3. Thoughts on Danganronpa

    by , 03-03-2016 at 12:33 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So, having completed my readthrough of Danganronpa recently, I felt like making a post like this. This doesn't mean I'm not gonna review it as well, but more than just reviewing it I also want to bring up and talk about some specific parts of the game that stood out to me, be it positively or negatively.

    The rest of this post contains spoilers for the entirety of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, the first game in the Danganronpa series.

    So let's start on

  4. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc First Impressions

    by , 02-28-2016 at 02:25 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Well, with the recent Steam release of this game there was no way I'd leave it hanging any longer.





    Danganronpa is set in "Hope's Peak Academy", a special academy which only ULTIMATE people may attend. There's the Ultimate Baseball Star, the Ultimate Fashionista, the Ultimate Gambler, ... ultimate people from all over the place. As for the protagonist? Well he's the Ultimate Lucky ...

  5. Tokyo School Life Review

    by , 02-28-2016 at 01:50 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Tokyo School Life is a visual novel developed by M2 Co., Ltd. It's short, but pretty sweet.




    Overview

    Tokyo School Life puts you in the shoes of a nameable male protagonist on a trip to Japan. Shortly after his arrival, he runs into three girls in less than fortunate circumstances, and even more unfortunately, they turn out to be the very people he's supposed to be living with. Thankfully, after a night ...

  6. CLANNAD Revisited

    by , 02-24-2016 at 03:24 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    It seems someone has been hijacking and misusing my blog by making a post unrelated to visual novels, though if Umineko's taught me anything it's not to mess with bored witches, so I'll leave it there...

    As for myself, I've got something bigger to talk about.


    So in case you didn't know, I spent the better part of the last three months rereading CLANNAD, my first visual novel. Technically Ace Attorney was my first, ...
  7. Root Double Kickstarter

    by , 01-07-2016 at 09:20 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I felt like fans of the Infinity or Zero Escape series might be interested in this.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-xtend-edition

    Conceptually it's very reminiscent of those two series (not to mention Nakazawa being the director again) except that instead of 'just' being an escape story, it's more of a rescue story this time. But apparently you get to view it unfold both from the outside as well as from the inside. Sounds ...
  8. OOC Monologue

    by , 01-05-2016 at 06:13 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Something sweet and motivating to start off the new year with.

    (I think I've obscured it enough so as to not spoil where it's from, but if you recognize the style early on and you haven't completed this VN yet, proceed with caution.)

  9. Looking back on 2015

    by , 01-02-2016 at 02:56 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Wow, hard to believe it's already been a year. Across the entirety of 2015 I've made 90 whole blog posts. That's a post every four days! Let me take a look at how far I've come since starting this thing...

    I've read 23 new visual novels, 18 of which I've reviewed.

    Adding up all the approximate lengths I'm left presuming I spent about 650 hours on it. Not counting rereads of visual novels I had already read prior to this year.

    By far my most active reading ...
  10. Censoring and Visual Novels

    by , 12-18-2015 at 02:51 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Seems like censoring in games has become quite a controversial issue recently. I mostly see people vehemently claiming that censoring is bad practice and should not be a thing. And I gotta be honest, I feel it's not quite that simple.

    This article is a bit old, being from mid-2013, but this has been an issue in the visual novel localizing scene for years now and it STILL ...
