  1. Hakuouki -Shinsengumi Kitan- First Impressions

    by , 03-02-2015 at 02:14 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    Finally started reading this one. Had to import a copy from the UK and borrow a 3DS as I don't have my own, but I'll gladly make that effort. I first heard of it thanks to Pumpkin's Favorite Games countdown, but since have also heard it being recommended by other people so I was rather eager to check it out.

    Since I'm not reading it on my PC for a change, I can't take screenshots as easily. Sorry bout that.

    So ...
  2. Women's Month 2015

    It's been a busy month for me. Between work and admining a new site I haven't had much time to be active on here. Anyway, per tradition, I thought I'd spend this time to show you all next month's lineup. I was going to review another Tomb Raider and Metroid game this year, but I thought that'd be too much of the same thing, so here's a fresh new batch of games all starring the ladies.

  4. AIR Common Route Thoughts

    by , 02-26-2015 at 11:46 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    AIR's common route is quite entertaining, I must say. So far it has done a good job creating a potentially interesting setting for the character routes.

    First off, the soundtrack is amazing. Need I mention Natsukage? So damn good. Or the opening Tori no Uta, IMO one of Key's best openings, music-wise at least? Yeah, it's great.

    Yukito is a great protagonist. It's not often that Key protagonists actually have an ...

    Kara no Shoujo, or Girl in the Shell, is a visual novel developed by Innocent Grey and localized in English by MangaGamer. Primarily, it's a very dark and suspenseful detective story.


    The story of Kara no Shoujo follows Reiji Tokisaka, a private detective, as he investigates a series of bizarre murders in Tokyo. ...

    Still have a lot more to add/check around in the project. It is in progress, but there's more ideas I'm working into the separate character plot points/story details and such.
  8. Oh look, a new challenge!

    Remember my 365 days thing? I found it very motivational and noticed I was pretty happy doing it, so I took that and made something new!

    This is essentially my 'bucket list' or 'life goals'! I have a bunch of challenges written down that I need to complete. It won't be a daily thing like the other one but I hope it's still fun and gives me the same joy the last one did

    I'm still open for challenge suggestions (1000 is a lot!) ...
  9. Kara no Shoujo First Impressions

    by , 02-22-2015 at 12:23 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Just a few hours ago, I started reading Kara no Shoujo, or "Girl in the Shell" (no relation to Ghost). So far it's shaping up to be a detective story with you actually being expected to investigate and deduce things. It feels a lot like Ace Attorney Investigations. Been a while since I read something with that particular sort of interaction.

    Just noticed that the "no" symbol is written in Katakana. Huh, weird.
  10. Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus Review

    by , 02-20-2015 at 04:00 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    The "Hate" series, consisting of Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus, was written by Christine Love. Both games are very similar in format and plot and have a quite unique way of telling its story.

    Analogue: A Hate Story

    Analogue: A Hate Story is set in a distant future where Earth is far from being the only place where humans live. The protagonist seems to be a bit of a Space Cowboy, doing investigation missions for random sponsors for a living. One such ...
