  2. Neon Lights, Large soda, and a handful of quarters...

    by , 08-01-2015 at 09:07 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    So lately I've been reminded of one of my life goals was that I wanted to one day build my own arcade for myself. Get all the games I grew up on and just have a fun little place devoted to letting me play through the classics and relieve the arcade scene I grew up in. I've been discussing this with friends as we try to create a list of the games we would add to the arcade. Of course there would be the classics like Galaga, Gauntlet, Pac-Man, Paperboy, Frogger, and Dig Dug but I also thought about ...
  3. Phoenix Wright Trilogy Retrospective

    by , 07-30-2015 at 11:43 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Recently a couple of members have shared their opinions on this series, some positive some negative, so I got the urge to think back and reevaulate the original trilogy as a whole.

    I ranked Ace Attorney as my #10 favorite Visual Novel back when I did my Top 10 and so far this rating still stands; neither Zero Escape nor Cross†Channel were able to get in front of it and push it off the list. And it doesn't look like Grisaia no Kajitsu is up to the task either.

    I'll be going ...
  4. Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Apreciation Threads.

    Just announcing that sometime in the future I plan on doing two threads, both of which will be long and detailed (split into pages), and will be full appreciation threads for both Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII. They will cover my overall look on the storyline, the characters, the locations, and whatever else I decide. They will both take me sometime, and will be very detailed, so I hope people will take that into account when they read them.

    The reason I am choosing ...

  5. Grisaia no Kajitsu Common Route Impressions

    by , 07-24-2015 at 10:59 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Been a while since I was this captured by a visual novel's sense of humor. Even though the common route did in fact take a good 12 hours to read through, and it was basically all fun and lighthearted comedy, it never became a drag for me. I was just really enjoying myself.

    Just quickly mentioning this, the common route is almost completely linear. There are only three choices until you get to the more important choices ...
  6. Video Game Fashions: BOWS!

    So I decided I will do these regularly! It's fun One thing I like is bows! I didn't think I cared until I started thinking about it a while ago and I realized that a very much like bows. Not always, but I think they can be a cute touch. Luckily for me, it seems to be a rather common fashion element in video games!

    So here are some of my favourite examples:

  7. Activity will take a hit

    Last night on the toilet the following thoughts entered my mind: Just give up. You'll never finish a book and you'll never be a published author. So now I have to write a book and get it published to stick it to my inner monologue. Between that and the weekly reviews my posting on here will be cut in half as I want to focus on my writing. I love you guys, but you can be very distracting when people want to be productive.

    I'll catch you guys later.
  8. Grisaia no Kajitsu First Impressions

    by , 07-22-2015 at 11:46 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So I've started reading the allegedly "best visual novel currently available on Steam", Grisaia no Kajitsu, also known as The Fruit of Grisaia or Le Fruit de la Grisaia.

    Well it's a galge set in a highschool setting, but even just an hour in it has already managed to set itself apart. Starting with the protagonist, Yuuji Kazami. The guy's a total badass. Unlike ...

  10. Video Game Asymmetrical Fashions

    I'm a huge fan of this style, don't know why. But I figured this didn't warrant it's own topic, so I'll just share some of my favourites here! Feel free to share any if you'd like, or say if you like the fashions or not
