Mini Review- Amnesia: Memories

So I finally got around to finishing my first route in Amnesia: Memories! Yay! *throws confetti* As always, I’m a few months behind the rest of the otoge community, but I can live with that. I took my time playing this one, and I’m kinda glad I did…there was a lot going on with this game. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the game, it was fun, but there were some things that I had problems with.

So I decided to play Shin’s route first, because he happens to be on all the promotional art, and he looked cute. Usually I’d go for the megane hottie Kent first, but something told me that it would be in my best interest to play Shin’s route first…and I’ll have to let you know in a later post if that was the right decision.

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Feb.21st to Feb.27th

Here we are again at the end of another week…I just started a Behavior Change Project for school, I decided to add more walking into my day, and I have managed to walk for at least 30 mins everyday this week! Yay me! I also managed to write absolutely nothing for my portion of the results section of my Big Graduation Research Project…motivation levels were especially low for this assignment…

I went to a party last night where I did some Backstreet Boys Karaoke…it was awesome, but I have to admit that I’m a tad bit tone deaf…But people were in to it nonetheless!

My Lover is an Abrasive God: Star Crossed Myth- Scorpio Review

So this was suggested by voltage-lover-headcanons over on Tumblr. Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a review on Scorpio, but your message on Tumblr was so nice, I just couldn’t say no!

Scorpio is one of my favorite Voltage characters, I fell in love with this dark haired god almost from the beginning, his dark hair and cool expressions just set my poor fangirl heart aflame. As I have said before I have a type: cool aloof, tsunderes, and snarky ice queens, Scorpio is all of that and so much more.

Scorpio description

Scorpio is a foul mouthed god, with a penchant for punishment, which I will admit may be a little off putting at first. His jerk levels at times are on par with the likes of Keith from Be My Princess, but once he falls in love Scorpio becomes a passionate, if not a tad bit possessive lover. I absolutely love Scorpio as a character, he and Takuto Hirukawa from Love Letter from Thief X are shining examples of tsunderes done right! It’s a shame that he always comes second to Eisuke Ichinomiya in every poll and tournament….

*Disclaimer: I don’t own these images, they belong to Voltage…and this goes without saying, but there will be minor SPOILERS under the cut…*

PokeNews: [Nintendo Pokemon Direct Announcement] Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun are a GO!

So I thought I’d document my thoughts before the Special 20th Anniversary Pokemon Direct Announcement…I really dunno what to think, earlier this week sites leaked that Nintendo obtained copyrights to Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun, speculating that these are the titles of the 7th generation of Pokemon games. A new game would be awesome, I dunno what to expect but I know it’s gonna be big!


 

Feb 27th 1996 was the exact date that Pokemon Red and Blue were released exactly 20 years ago. And to commemorate that they had a really sweet and nostalgic video showing people playing pokemon in all of its iterations.

HOLY SHIT A NEW GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pokemon_sun_moon.0.0They Officially announced Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun for 3DS later this year! I am so excited right now I can’t contain it! They also announced the digital release of the original Red, Blue, and Yellow with access to the Pokemon Bank so we can finally trade pokemon from the original games to the newer games!

Are you guys excited about Pokemon20? What about Pokemon Go? Feel free to comment and share, and as always THANK YOU for reading!

Fangirl Moment: I Shall Never Return

IMG_0615

So one of the manga series that I bought at Katsucon was the acclaimed yaoi classic, I Shall Never Return by Kazuna Uchida. I absolutely love this manga, everything about it just screamed 90’s, from the fashion to the angst ridden plot, it was a non-stop ride from start to finish. I couldn’t help but get swept up in the story of Ritsuru and Ken, as their friendship evolves into a passionate love affair. I could not put it down, quickly breezing through all five volumes in a matter of hours, it was just that good! Don’t let the art put you off this amazing title (I happen to love 90’s art), you will regret not reading this amazing title.

The five volume series released between 1992 and 1996 follows the friendship between Ritsuro, a straight laced high school student and Ken, a high school drop out who leads a life of sex and drugs. Despite Ken’s destructive lifestyle, Ritsuro sticks by him even after it causes friction between him and his girlfriend Moeko. I want to commend this title for actually having a female character that is important to the plot! Moeko is much more than the typical female prop character, she is an important friend to both Ritsuro and Ken, without getting in the way of the relationship between the two male leads. She is a side character that actually adds depth to the story in a meaningful way.
