    As for the game I am focusing on rn, Pillars of Eternity is going pretty frickin' swell. It's like Baldur's Gate, but new. I'm really enjoying myself and there's a couple interesting solutions to combat. Like, you can't boost yourself before combat, because priest spells only work in combat. There's also abilities that have specific numbers of uses per encounter instead of per rest, which is really cool. And I have this guy of the chanter class (really nice guy, by the way. Such a warm and fuzzy character with an interest in everything art/book/culture/architecture related. A huge nerd with shark teeth, basically) and he is awesome, because he can battle normally and just keeps chanting in the meantime, buffing the party, and when he chants he accumulates points that can be used to cast spells, the most useful of which are summoning spells. So though you have to wait, his spells are super worth it and can be cast again and again because he just keeps recharging those points as he sings.

    There also isn't any HP, instead there are Endurance Points and Life Points. A character usually gets knocked out after they lose all endurance points, but they get up after battle and all their EP gets restored pretty quickly. Now, EP acts like a sort of like a shield for your LP, and if your LP level is below your max EP level, you can only reach that number with your EP (for example, you normally have 80 EP, but your LP got reduced to 60, so you only get to restore up to 60 EP). Once your LP reach 0 and you wake up after battle, you get 1 LP and have the maimed status, and if you reach 0LP then, you die. It's pretty easy to restore EP, but you can only restore LP while resting, which isn't as easy as it sounds, because outside of towns you can only rest using a camping set, which you can only carry four of.

    Aside from that, the story is cool and there's a lot of dialog options, some of which even determine your backstory, so that's pretty neat. You get to create your character from scratch, and I'm playing an Aumaua, which is this big race with shark-like characteristics, and here's my character's portrait (SPOILER)

    Still, there's worse ways of spending money than on a 3DS If you managed to get the New 3DS, you'd even be able to play Xenoblade Chronicles which, quite incidentally, is my favorite game of all time

    Also, aside from the four character themes, which are amazing, this is probably my favorite track:




    Bravely Second's OST is still good, but certainly not to the level of Default, so despite being solid it's kind of a letdown

    It is a fantastic game with one, very, VERY serious flaw that ruins it to a lot of players

    Reading any good non-porn vns lately :P

    I was actually thinking, since I am expanding my gaming repertoire (and now have like 110 games backlogged ) that I would try like an adult dating sim. I don't like them when they go in to more... adult stuff, but I do like the sweet PG ones. I thought it might be funny to just try one and see what happens

    Pillars of Eternity is my main focus now. I'm also playing Undertale with my wife when we have the time, and I also started Bravely Second during Easter, as that's when I got it as a belated nameday gift, and I will come right back to focusing on it once I beat Pillars. Also playing a bit of Persona 4 Dancing All Night on the side, but that's a rhythm game that I've already beaten the story mode of, so it's more a thumb exercise than any serious gaming really

    Well, we'll see. Horror is a very subjective genre, much like comedy, so even if one brand is objectively good in quality, doesn't mean it will be everyone's cup of tea.

    But I'm all for trying things on my own and shaping my own opinions, so I will definitely look into it one day

    Glad you enjoyed the video

    As for Higurashi, I will look into it, though really, don't expect me to play it anytime soon My backlog is 2spoopy4me

    Hmm... My backlog is epic in proportion, but it sounds interesting. As long as it isn't Corpse Party I saw PewDiePie play that one, but the reliance on gorn, jump scares, and fanservice really left me more weirded out than scared.

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 12:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.


Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of cliché, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 08:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.

SubaHibi set for late August release

by Karifean on 07-04-2017 at 01:03 PM
https://twitter.com/frontwingint/sta...91370361507840

So this probably won't be relevant for most people here since non-PG and all, but SubaHibi, one of the most hyped visual novels in recent memory, is set to be released in English in late August.


The method of release is kind of strange, ngl. Apparently they offer the first chapter of the game in all ages on Steam for 30 bucks and then provide

Little Busters is on Steam Greenlight

by Karifean on 04-30-2017 at 12:25 AM
As of just now, Little Busters! English Edition is on Steam Greenlight. While the release date is a vague "2017" it's pretty cool to see *something* happening nonetheless.

Higurashi Ch. 5 Meakashi released on Steam

by Karifean on 04-29-2017 at 12:36 AM
So for anyone following this series, or interested in following it, Higurashi Chapter 5 - also known as Meakashi - was just released on Steam. I felt like announcing this here because it's my favorite arc in Higurashi and one where I feel Ryukishi's talent in writing characters really comes out for the very first time.



You can find it here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/57...Ch_5_Meakashi/
