  1. Rose Guns Days First Impressions

    by , 09-26-2015 at 03:32 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    What do you call it when the writer of Higurashi and Umineko decides to go write a Baccano! slash Cowboy Bebop esque story?

    smurfing glorious that's what.



    No seriously, this has to be one of the best prospects for a story I've ever heard. Rose Gun(s) Days is sometimes called Ryukishi07's most accessible work, and well, I wouldn't be surprised. It's set - for the most part - in post-war Japan, 1947 to be exact. But before I go into the story further, ...

    by , 09-20-2015 at 01:15 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So I was gone for two weeks, off in Italy working on stone walls. Twas pretty fun, but there was no (consistently usable) internet to speak of so now I have to catch up on what happened these two weeks. And there certainly are things to share.

    fault milestone two side:above has been released
    You can find it on Steam for I think 15 bucks. It seems milestone two was split into two halves, and although the creators said they worked with that in mind I've already seen complaints about ...

  7. Super Mario Maker: Days 2 & 3

    By the third day I had unlocked all the items in the creator (excluding the mystery mushroom costumes).

    Speaking of Mystery Mushroom costumes, yesterday I beat 100 Mario mode on the medium setting (which you must to unlock Expert, more on that later). Which costume did I get rewarded w/? Tingle. Yes, Tingle. That green little weirdo from Wind Waker. My god, who the hell wants Tingle! I'm guessing it's random, because Tingle is something that should be given as a punishment for losing ...

  8. Cat Almost Died, Now We're Kinda Broke

    I really don't expect anyone to donate or help.

    And I really hate that we're even doing this- it makes me feel pretty selfish and trout (in spite of some friends encouraging us to do so)..

    But, here it is:

  9. Super Mario Maker: Day One

    Due to technical problems re: my WiFi, I wasn't able to play Super Mario Maker until 5 days after it's release. Nonetheless, I have to say that I'm just glad to have started it. Super Mario Maker was not only my most anticipated game in a long time, but one of the most anticipated games of the year. My early prognosis is it was worth all the hype. However, I haven't played through it fully, so I'll save a full review for after I've unlocked all the essentials.

    Apparently, the 9 day ...
