  1. Virtue's Last Reward First Impressions

    by , 05-12-2015 at 09:00 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Doesn't bode well when you get stuck for an hour during the first two-and-a-half hours of gameplay xD

    So Virtue's Last Reward has a premise similar to 999's. Nine people, locked away, forced to play the Nonary Game if they wish to survive. However this time around the game works a little differently, mainly with the addition of the AB and CD.

    Instead of opening numbered doors with a fitting digital root, all the bracelets this time around show a '3' at the beginning, and ...

  4. 999 True End Impressions

    by , 05-11-2015 at 09:59 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Okay, so I just finished up 999 and, uh, I don't even know what to say. I wish I could be all positive about it, but there's something that really, really bothers me.

    This post contains spoilers for all of 999 (Zero Escape: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors). If you have not read it, beware.

    Alright so since my last post was after I'd only gotten one ending, I guess I'll start by giving my overall impressions on the rest of the game leading up to the conclusion. There were good ...

  5. Sad ramblings

    I did some jogging today and I didn't run out of energy as quickly as usual, so that's a positive! And I've been working hard on my workouts

    But I haven't trimmed down much or lost much weight and that makes me very sad. I feel like a tub of lard. I hate going out in public because I'm worried people are looking at me and thinking "Look at that fatass!" It's getting hot here and I can't even wear my shorts because I'm so worried about going out showing my fat thighs.
  6. Changing faces

    by , 05-09-2015 at 01:39 PM (Fynn's positive life blog)
    Now I know this may be weird to some people who change their avatars on a weekly basis, but Id grown very attached to my previous avatar, to the point of actually treating it as my own face here.

    But as I've recently shortened my name, I find that to be a good opportunity to experiment with my look. Behold Edwin. I've been replaying Baldur's Gate recently and have this wizard in my party for the first time and I am having a blast. Edwin is so much fun on so many levels, I can't even ...

  8. 999 First Ending - Speculation Time!

    by , 05-08-2015 at 08:01 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So I just got my first ending in 999. What happened was (SPOILER)Clover went a little mad and killed Santa, Seven, June and then Junpei with an axe. Oh joy.

    I won't tag spoilers from here on.

    I definitely enjoy the way this game is shaping up, because it feels as if the big mystery of the game - "Who is Zero?" - is a genuine mystery you can reason out before it's revealed to you. In other words, a fair challenge to the reader. And so, to let the veterans enjoy watching ...

  10. 999 First Impressions

    by , 05-06-2015 at 05:52 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Well I've reached the first actual choice so I thought it might be a good time to give first impressions.

    Sorry about this being the only screenshot, I fear running into spoilers if I look for anything else.

    First things first.


    *Ahem* Sorry. I haven't read a visual novel that didn't just skip the text-appearing-animation if you click ...
