  1. Character Appreciation: Alice Tsukagami

    Alice Tsukagami, a.k.a. Alice the Rabbit, is a character from the Bloody Roar series. She first appears in the original, where she is a young girl of 17, and is still in the 4th game where she is a young woman of 24. She is Japanese with a German mother and she hates onions, much like myself.

    Alice is a beast person like all of the characters in Bloody Roar and ...
  2. Creativity ramble thing

    by , 03-03-2016 at 01:02 PM (Fynn's positive life blog)
    You know what I'm tired of?

    People saying something must have been "made on drugs".

    I mean, it's such an ignorant and dismissive statement that really undermines the creative power of the collective human consciousness. Yes, we can create things that go way beyond what we could normally imagine without the help of drugs, be it through teamwork or by one individual's highly evolved imagination.

    The thing about imagination and creativity is that ...
  3. Thoughts on Danganronpa

    by , 03-02-2016 at 11:33 PM (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 01:25 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 ...

  6. Tokyo School Life Review

    by , 02-28-2016 at 12:50 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.


    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 ...

  7. Character Appreciation: Hotaru Futaba

    So I will try to start a weekly, maybe bi-weekly character appreciation blog. If you saw my character tournament, you know that characters are super important to my enjoyment of a game, and so I will dedicate a few minutes to a character every week/2 weeks. Might line up with new games I'm playing, might reflect on old games I've played. We'll see what the future brings~

    For the first week, I will be appreciating Hotaru Futaba from the SNK games. I will eventually change my set to her, ...
  8. CLANNAD Revisited

    by , 02-24-2016 at 02:24 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, ...
  9. Defining Gaming as Art

    by , 02-23-2016 at 06:49 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

    So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things ...

    Day 1

    "We're members. Me, Maria and Guy. The Princess initially refused to let us join the rebellion. Said we were young. Nonsense! The average age of the heroes of the land is about seventeen, and I have come from a humble origin. I am perfectly suited to this rebellion!

    Well, we were never one to listen. We went and searched for Leon ourselves, infiltrating Fynn in the process. We didn't find him, but instead we found a
