  1. Anime Survey

    I made an anime survey to use for an anime feud game at an anime convention. I spread it around on some forums and it's got about a dozen serious responses. I say serious because I've had just as many people answer it that were clearly trolling. One person answered everything with Cory in the house (I know it's meme, but that is clearly not what I'm after). If anyone wants to give me some usable answers for this survey, you can take it here:

  2. Root Double Kickstarter

    by , 01-07-2016 at 08:20 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 ...
  3. OOC Monologue

    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.)

  6. Looking back on 2015

    by , 01-02-2016 at 01:56 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 ...
  7. Censoring and Visual Novels

    by , 12-18-2015 at 01:51 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.

  8. Video Game Fashions: Omega Quintet

    SO I have been super busy playing Omega Quintet on my new PS4 and I love it! I will post a general review of it in my video game journal when I finish it, but it's not for everyone. It is, however, for outfit lovers. YOU CAN CHANGE OUTFITS

    IN BATTLE

    Anyways, it's an awesome game for girlying it out, as I enjoy doing from time to time, and I am going to share some of my favourite outfits from this game

    Well first, I'm not a huge fan of the default outfits. Kind ...

  10. CLANNAD First Re-Impressions

    by , 11-28-2015 at 07:39 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    You know I was somewhat anxious going into CLANNAD. Not too long ago I crowned it my #3 favorite visual novel, but really, it's been two years since I read it by now. It was the first visual novel I had ever read that I truly identified as a member of its medium. So I was slightly afraid that it turns out my perception of CLANNAD was just heavily colored, that since I had no standards regarding visual novels back then, it might fail to hold up now, not actually being as good as I remember.
