  1. My Current VN Tier List

    by , 03-22-2017 at 01:02 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I thought about making another Top 10 list with VNs I've read or changed opinion on since my last one, but I don't think it would be particularly representative. So hey, why not make a ranking of literally *all* VNs I've ever read? Sounds like fun!

    That being said, some of these novels are way too close to one another and hard to differentiate in how I feel about them. So I'm going to be doing this in tiers. I'll still try to sort the VNs in each individual tier from worst to best, ...

  2. Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 3!

    Today we are doing Marie Rose, Momiji, Naotora, and Nyotengu!

    First for Marie Rose!

    This is her classic outfit, which I mostly like for the boots. It's a cute enough dress, though.

    One again, I am a fan of asymmetry, roses, and the colour pink and it's all combined here! Not the best, but I still like it.

  3. Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 2!

    We're back with some more DOA outfits~ Today we will be looking at outfits for Kasumi, Kokoro, and Leifang

    Starting with Kasumi, we have a variant on her classic outfit.

    Her classic outfit is white and blue, which is nice, but this one matches her hair ribbon better, I find. There's also a white and red/pink variation as well.

    Speaking of which, this ...
  4. Video Game Fashions: DOA Part 1!

    So for all of DOA's shortcomings, it has a ton of outfits. And I like outfits. Some of them are terrible, some are adorable. So for now I will be talking about some of my fav Dead or Alive outfits!

    NOTE that some of these are NSFW because... well it is DOA. I will be sure to spoiler those for you.

    I will start this edition with the characters of Ayane, Helena, and Hitomi!

    First up, Ayane!

    One ...
  5. A Journey of Seagulls - Episode 1

    by , 03-02-2017 at 02:13 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    This is going to be a series of posts forming a commentary on the journey of reading Umineko. While I may talk about themes more relevant to Umineko on a greater scale, I intend to keep this series spoiler-free beyond the episode I'm talking about, so you're completely safe to read this if you've read up to the episode in the title yourself.

    Starting with Episode 1: And Then There Were No Seagulls, or something along those lines. At least until it's not anymore.

    Umineko OST - Ride on ...

  6. Hey, let's see a movie.

    So if you don't know, I love movies. They're just a visual representation of stories and it's neat when you think of the different ways characters or aspects of the movies are portrayed.

    The last movie I saw was "A Cure for Wellness", it was a psychological thriller that had little cool tidbits that you wouldn't get until you already got it. Make sense? It's a great movie when you really sit back and think, was this all real or a delusion?

    The next movie ...

  8. Comparing the sci-fi escape genre games

    by , 02-09-2017 at 05:51 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Referring to Zero Escape, Root Double and Ever17, three games / series that share a quite similar premise and execute it in quite different ways. The shared premise being basically as follows: a group of characters finds themselves locked in a very dangerous situation cut off from the outside world, and if they don't get out fast they all die. The games are all set in the not too distant future, with science being a little more advanced than in our world. And finally, all the games have some very ...

  9. Wisdom and age

    When I was in my 20s, there's a story I loved to tell. It's a true story.

    When I was going to college, I moved in with my father. The first big snowstorm of the year, he and I went out to shovel the driveway. My father is an engineer, and he spent quite some time looking over the driveway and the available tools and deciding on the most efficient way to do the job with minimal effort. I, on the other hand, grabbed a shovel and started moving snow.

    By the time he ...

  10. 999 and VLR are coming to Steam on March 24th

    by , 02-01-2017 at 02:05 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)

    Steam Page:

    So yeah, after what feels like an eternity since ZTD's PC release, the first two parts of the Zero Escape trilogy are finally catching up and getting PC releases of their own. Or at least together as a bundle.

    999 has been revamped and features voice acting and I believe also the new (bad) ending that came in the iOS version? ...
