  2. Cross†Channel Review

    by , 07-16-2015 at 11:34 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Cross†Channel is a visual novel written by Romeo Tanaka. It is often considered one of the most beautifully written visual novels out there.

    This review will reveal the initial setting and structure of this visual novel, both of which could be considered spoilers. If you wish to be completely unspoiled regarding these points, skip this review.

  3. Yay!

    by , 07-15-2015 at 04:01 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    From left to right:
    • Higurashi Hou Collection (Episode 1-9 + Bonus Material)
    • Umineko Episode 1-4
    • Umineko Episode 5-8 (Chiru)
    • Umineko Tsubasa (Fandisc)
    • Ougon Musou Kyoku
    • Ougon Musou Kyoku CROSS
    • OMK Extra Disc

    Gotta say, it's immensely satisfying to own a hard copy of your favorite visual novel. Plus Ougon Musou Kyoku (CROSS) and the Higurashi Hou collection on top of that.

    Front view: (Uh... Slight Umineko Episode 1 spoilers I suppose)

  5. Muv-Luv Alternative Review

    by , 07-04-2015 at 12:14 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    This review will contain some spoilers for the general setting and plot of Muv-Luv Unlimited. If you wish to be completely unspoiled regarding the Muv-Luv series, stay clear of this review.

    Muv-Luv Alternative is a visual novel created by âge, the sequel to the original Muv-Luv. As of writing this review, it is the #1 most popular visual novel on VNDB, and it's up there as one of the darkest stories ever told in visual novels.

  6. Zero Escape 3 scheduled for a Summer 2016 Release

    by , 07-03-2015 at 11:27 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    Felt like this was worth mentioning since I know quite a few people round these forums like this series. I enjoyed the Zero Escape games quite a lot, especially Virtue's Last Reward, but the lack of closure really hurts. But it seems that problem will forever resolve itself in one year's time~

    Though I hope it's not as reminiscent of Kotaro Uchikoshi's other ...

  7. Muv-Luv is getting an official localization

    by , 06-30-2015 at 01:03 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    So this is a thing. People called âge localizations an impossibility, but Degica did it. They're gonna be kickstarting it which you can probably blame on Sekai Project's successes in doing just that, but I have no doubts it'll meet its goal. In fact, I'll certainly be pledging towards it, since while I do overall think Muv-Luv is more popular than it needs to be it's still a damn good story overall.

    The formal announcement isn't ...

    What happens when a visual novel with a great story gives you a bonus extra ending as a reward for 100% completion?

  9. Title Screen Themes in VNs

    by , 06-18-2015 at 01:46 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I feel like doing a few writeups of particular aspects of visual novels, and how and where they were done well or not-so-well. There's a lot of subtle things that go into a visual novel experience, and I appreciate the attention to detail on some accounts. This is one of those little things that can truly make a big difference.

    In many ways a good title screen theme is important. It's the single theme you keep coming back to - the one you hear every time you open up the game - and ...

  10. VNs in the Steam Summer Sale!

    by , 06-14-2015 at 12:24 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Figured I might as well make this little list for anyone interested in taking advantage of the current Summer Sale to grab a couple of games.

    planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ is 50% off, putting it at € 4,99. Being made by the same company who also made CLANNAD and Little Busters!, naturally, I can only recommend it. It's only three hours long and thus definitely one of the best 'short' (<5h) visual novels I've ever read. Especially if you like Key, or you're interested ...
