  1. Haven't made the cut pt. 3

    Adventure Time - Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?!!


    The title is self-explanatory. The Ice King stole Fynn and Jake's garbage to make a... garbage princess. The game is a 2D platformer with an overworld map and some questing to do (get item A, bring to person X, etc). It of course takes place in the Land of Ooo and you will control Fynn while using Jake for certain skills.

  2. Match the VN - Depressing Edition

    by , 01-19-2017 at 03:29 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    You know, I recently went back over some of the plots of my favorite visual novels and, uh, with a lot of them if you think about the situation too much it starts getting really depressing.

    So for "fun" I felt like summing up their situations in a sentence or two and decided to make a little game: match the VN to the horribly depressing situation! Naturally some of these are pretty big spoilers so I've put the list of represented VNs in a spoiler tag at the bottom. You shouldn't ...

    In all seriousness I would like Karifean's answer. There was a thread a few months ago where both he and Ultima Shadow praised it as a fantastic experience and so I was curious and looked it up on Steam but didn't quite get it - are there others in the series you need to experience first, or? I saw someone had done a LP on YouTube and thought about watching it wasn't sure if it was the right thing.
    It seems that across the several different rants ...
  4. Haven't made the cut pt. 2

    Here are three more games that didn't make the cut that you might maybe want to check out.

    Oblivious Garden


    This Chinese visual novel has you play as a famed hero stripped of his title and sent to a figurative bird cage where he must teach the Princesses how to fence. As expected, there is more to these ladies than meets the eye, and the game has four romantic routes for you to pursue.

  5. 2016 was an awesome year

    by , 12-31-2016 at 01:17 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So today has been a pretty meh day. As is usual on the last day of a university deadline. But having it be one day before the final day of the year is just in bad taste. Since I was in a group with my brother on this assignment, we were in his apartment together, working, from 2 PM to midnight straight. It was a pretty taxing time for the both of us, not to mention my brother's wife who took on the task of attending to their three children in the meantime.

    Of course all that was sliiiiightly ...
  6. Games that haven't made the cut that you should maybe check out

    Hey there! How are you? Good, good, I am well too.

    It's been a while since I made a blog post. I'm making my way through my to play list... slowly. Unfortunately, some games will not be making it on my top lists. I know, it's sad, but not every game can make the cut.

    So this is a list of games that didn't make the cut (so far) that aren't actually BAD games, just not my flavour for whatever reason. I'll add more updates as I go along.

  8. Hey, is that drunk thread still active?

    You know this girl I liked a lot in university used to say WEEOOOO on her twitter posts.

    Is that drunk thread still a thing, I was just re-reading the post where I said something about drinking with used tampons.

    That looked like it was fun.

    You guys are fun, and did HC just come back and then leave?

  9. Just a thought on theories, research and articles.

    Hey I am just doing some article reading/researching for a paper, and it comes as pertinent to note that there are several types of studies.

    There are ones that are literature reviews.
    There are articles based on theories.
    There are meta-analytical studies.
    There a scientific studies with experiments.

    And really, the list does go on. You can read a paper and it can be entirely theoretical, and it actually has validity.

    There are theories ...
