  1. AIR Summer Arc Thoughts

    by , 05-01-2015 at 09:39 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 ...
  2. Umineko: A Reflection on Episode 8

    by , 04-27-2015 at 03:00 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

  3. 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"
  4. AIR Dream Arc Thoughts

    by , 04-22-2015 at 10:52 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Having completed Dream and now moving on to Summer, I felt I could at least post my thoughts on it, and maybe compare it to the anime a bit.

    Dream consists of three character routes; Minagi's, Kano's and Misuzu's, and I went through them in this order.

    Minagi Tohno

    I didn't really remember much about her character from the anime, so a lot of this was 'new' to me. Minagi is a very quiet girl and doesn't ...
  5. I find this amusing

    Do you every browse megacritic just to see the difference in opinion from critics and gamers? I just looked up Tears to Tiara 2, a game I am very much enjoying, and the results were pretty amusing.

    I wonder what causes these kinds of differences? Are the reviewers disconnected from what the fans want? Is it just a game that only the fans will give a good review to? Interesting either way
  6. BAH!

    Life blew up. In a good way.

    Sort of.

    I started an Internship, which rocks!
    Then i made texture lead.
    Rocking even harder!
    I start back to school for my masters in may. (maybe)

    The down side to all this,

    Dad is having major surgery soon. He's got to have outer half his right lung removed and theres a bleh around his artery, that has to come out too. So while the rest is good and great, I'm scared.

    My brother ...

  7. ATTN

    Hi friends. As you may have noticed, I've been spending a lot less time here and at the chat. I have decided to spend my time to run the EyesonFF DA group as smoothly as possible as Headmaster. I will also be spending more time to improve my art and at my Tumblr blog. Feel free to reach me on twitter at @j3Proto if you like to talk. Thanks for everything everyone.

  9. Micturated off

    I'm beginning to grow annoyed by people claiming that technology is destroying society. Yes, young people prefer their tablets and phones to "traditional" activities like family diners- but what does this replace? What was the most common thing people did before the internet? smurfing war, that's what. Tech is bringing the internet inti homes, and that is making people interact with others from other countries and philosophies and thereby find out that such is not evil. Yes, we still ...
