  2. New Series Articles Cancelled

    Bad news, everyone, I won't be continuing any of the new weekly articles I started. I know it's only been a couple of weeks, but ever since I started the days have gotten progressively shorter and they've been wearing me out.

  7. Virtue's Last Reward True End Impressions

    by , 05-18-2015 at 05:32 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    This post contains spoilers for the entirety of the Zero Escape series (999 and Virtue's Last Reward). If you have not read it, beware.
