  1. Tokyo School Life Review

    by , 02-28-2016 at 12:50 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Tokyo School Life is a visual novel developed by M2 Co., Ltd. It's short, but pretty sweet.


    Tokyo School Life puts you in the shoes of a nameable male protagonist on a trip to Japan. Shortly after his arrival, he runs into three girls in less than fortunate circumstances, and even more unfortunately, they turn out to be the very people he's supposed to be living with. Thankfully, after a night ...

  2. Character Appreciation: Hotaru Futaba

    So I will try to start a weekly, maybe bi-weekly character appreciation blog. If you saw my character tournament, you know that characters are super important to my enjoyment of a game, and so I will dedicate a few minutes to a character every week/2 weeks. Might line up with new games I'm playing, might reflect on old games I've played. We'll see what the future brings~

    For the first week, I will be appreciating Hotaru Futaba from the SNK games. I will eventually change my set to her, ...
  3. CLANNAD Revisited

    by , 02-24-2016 at 02:24 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    It seems someone has been hijacking and misusing my blog by making a post unrelated to visual novels, though if Umineko's taught me anything it's not to mess with bored witches, so I'll leave it there...

    As for myself, I've got something bigger to talk about.

    So in case you didn't know, I spent the better part of the last three months rereading CLANNAD, my first visual novel. Technically Ace Attorney was my first, ...
  4. Defining Gaming as Art

    by , 02-23-2016 at 06:49 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

    So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things ...

    Day 1

    "We're members. Me, Maria and Guy. The Princess initially refused to let us join the rebellion. Said we were young. Nonsense! The average age of the heroes of the land is about seventeen, and I have come from a humble origin. I am perfectly suited to this rebellion!

    Well, we were never one to listen. We went and searched for Leon ourselves, infiltrating Fynn in the process. We didn't find him, but instead we found a

  6. Kefka Diary

    My boss is such a dick. He pulled me up today for wearing too much make-up. I'm a smurfing clown, you idiot! He's already criticised me for setting fire to that school and now this? I'm not attending this disciplinary that he's summoned me to. Smurf him.

    What kind of name is Gestahl anyway? His mother clearly didn't think too highly of him. I'm gonna have this prick's job, one day.
  7. Being a hero's pretty swell!

    by , 02-22-2016 at 04:38 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    "Hi there~! Oh don't mind me. I heard a witch has come up with a new idea for an interesting gameboard, so I just ha~d to come check it out. ☆And to help her with her game, I hijacked this random human's blog to allow one of the pieces of the game to have it's say☆. Have fun with the rest of the game, everybody~!"

    What do I feel about being a hero? I remember asking many a great hero that question back in my days as a ...
  8. An interesting turn of events

    by , 02-22-2016 at 04:02 PM (Fynn's positive life blog)
    I find myself in the midst of a group hellbent on taking over this world of "Ai-zon" that I have ventured into. For some reason, this turn of events came as a surprise to me, as I've never seen this timeline before. Mayhap this self-proclaimed "Time-witch" truly is behind it all. I'm curious as to how this mechanism works.

    While I had no interest in this world at the start of all this, I seem to have been allied with some very interesting people. This strange armored ...

  10. Updated To Play List

    So thanks to a lot of awesome suggestions from peoples on this site, I have updated my "to play" list. It is quite extensive and includes games that are not yet released. I have it divided in to different genres and marked with "to buy", "to start", or "to finish". As expected, To buy means I do not have the game, to start means I have it but have not played it a lot or recently and need to start over, and to finish means I need to finish it up. This is going ...
