  1. Rogue Friday: Sega Genesis

    The first edition of "Rogue Friday" is here. A day dedicated to talking about whatever the smurf I want. This week I decided it would be the perfect time to honor my favorite retro console: the Sega Genesis!
  2. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. AIR Summer Arc Thoughts

    by , 05-01-2015 at 10:39 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Well, well, that was actually pretty damn good.

    After completing the three storyline paths of Dream, you unlock the Summer arc. It takes place in a completely different era with completely different characters and overall has pretty much nothing to do with what you've read up to this point.

    Summer takes place in ancient Japan. The protagonist is a samurai by the name of Ryuuya. He is sent to protect a 'winged ...
  8. Umineko: A Reflection on Episode 8

    by , 04-27-2015 at 04:00 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    This post contains heavy spoilers for the eighth episode of Umineko no Naku Koro ni. If you have not read Umineko, beware.


    Most people who have read Twilight of the Golden Witch probably aren't surprised at this, but it's my least favorite of the Umineko episodes. For the simple reason that most of the main plot has already ended by that point; Battler and Beatrice's game was resolved back in Episode 6, and Episode 7 tied up pretty much all the loose ends of the mystery

  9. Wrong

    A woman recently asked me, "How do you view lesbian relationships"?

    I thought to myself, " Well, this is dangerous, but on the other hand, it's an open-ended question, surely it's safe to answer "

    Apparently not

    APPARENTLY, this was a question with right and wrong answers

    And apparently," 1080p fullscreen " was a wrooooooooonnnnnnnggg answer"
  10. Euphoric Eugene to the rescue!

    Raistlin, who is currently masquerading the forums as Euphoric Eugene, has generously offered to match Achilles' campaign donations made for the next week maxing out at a total of $500.

    If you were planning on donating at any point, now would be the time to do it to squeeze that dude out of as much $$$ as can be done!

    Thank you again to everyone; we just started this campaign yesterday and we are already over $1,000. Hopefully with this week's contributions plus Wesley's ...
