  1. Pumpkin's Mega-Cleaning Week!

    I am posting this up, partly to help keep myself accountable and partly so I can look back and see progress!

    So with the house stuff going on, cleaning got pushed to the side. Plus I haven't done a big annual clean since we moved in, and with school starting soon, my time will be less free. So I have put together a mega-cleaning week. Today is day one. I will update with progress as I go along. I'll also cross off what I have completed.

    Froday has nothing scheduled so it ...

  3. 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.

  4. Zero Escape 3 scheduled for a Summer 2016 Release

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



    https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/617072566499282945


    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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Something OOC

    by , 06-25-2015 at 07:46 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    What happens when a visual novel with a great story gives you a bonus extra ending as a reward for 100% completion?

    Well...

  7. Movie Monday!

    As evident by this thread I have decided to branch out into cinema. Those who have been following me for a while will know that I already dabble in this medium in the past with my Mario, and Street Fighter reviews, but those were more looking at an adaption from the eyes of a gamer than your casual movie goer, so they may remain as part of my video games section.

    Every Monday I'll look at a different movie and post it on my blog before sharing it here. Like my games there's no cutoff ...

  8. Branching Out

    I have some good news, and bad news, so I'll start off by getting the bad news out of the way.

    The bad news is that after much thought I'm not doing those other articles even as a weekly thing. I don't have the drive to do them anymore. They were fun for a while as an experiment, but I ran out of ideas pretty quickly. However, I'll still be branching out to new fields.

    This brings me to the good news. There have been something I wanted to do for a while now, but it ...
  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. Best of luck to Square Enix

    So much irony in me saying these words.

    My thoughts are with the Square Enix team working on the Final Fantasy VII Remake and I wish them all the best. The amount of pressure they're going to get working on something that is considered the best RPG of all time by millions could kill a person. No matter what they do, people are going to bitch when the game doesn't live up to their expectations.

    They could keep EVERYTHING from the original game in it and I still predict ...
