TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m going to talk about a movie I saw with a friend a few weeks ago! I meant to write this post earlier, but one thing lead to another…I’m making excuses, today’s post is all about the third and final film in the Bridget Jones trilogy, Bridget Jones’s Baby!
Was this the best movie I’ve ever seen? Nope. Was this the best film of the year? Absolutely not! Was this even the best film in the trilogy? Not really. But, did I giggle like a schoolgirl when Colin Firth appeared on screen for the first time? You bet I did!
So why am I writing about this? Well, Bridget and her shenanigans (along with a healthy amount of Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream) have gotten me through some tough times in the past. I have fond memories of the first film (the second not so much) and to this day, I still watch the first film whenever I’m feeling especially down about something. So, when I heard that there was going to be a third and final film in the series, I couldn’t wait to buy my ticket!
*This post will contain some spoilers for the film, so proceed with caution!*
Chronotopia is an upcoming commercial visual novel from French developers Träumendes Mädchen. The game features aspects of both visual novels and point-and-click games and borrows elements from the French fairytale, Donkeyskin by Charles Perrault. Upon it’s release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux in both English and French. The developers are also working on getting the game greenlit for Steam.
“The young Donkeyskin lives a peaceful existence in her castle, enjoying her days with her best friend and confidant, Nahima. That is until her father, gone mad since the death of his beloved, decides he should wed the princess instead. Donkeyskin has to find a way to escape from this fate, but how? She doesn’t know it yet, but it’s the beginning of a long nightmare that will take her to the edge of madness…”
Edit (10/29): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was €13,823 from 224 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of 2017!
For once I was ahead of the game with one of these Kickstarter campaign posts! I actually found out about this campaign before the release, but don’t get too used to this, I don’t know if I can make a habit of being on time with these things. 😛 This time I’m covering the upcoming commercial visual novel from Träumendes Mädchen, called Chronotopia!!

Edit (9/28): Cheritz has made an official announcement about the bans on their Tumblr page, HERE!
First, I want to say thank you to Aurora6290 for sending me this tip! As many of you knowMystic Messenger players have been receiving Permanent Bans for reasons not associated with the Time Modification Cheat. Current ban triggers are as follows:
Using Hourglasses to replay multiple missed chats, as far as I’ve heard using Hourglasses to replay one missed chat at a time has not resulted in a banned account.
Pausing or remaining idle for too long during chat rooms, though the exact amount of time idle that triggers the ban has yet to be disclosed.
Quitting or closing the app in the middle of a chat room also results in a ban notice.
The recent influx of non-time manipulation related bans has caused a bit of a stir in the community and applaud all of you that took the time to reach out to Cheritz about the issue. Well, Cheritz was listening and they have reached out to all affected players.
Cheritz will be reviewing all of the improperly banned account reports and will be taking action to lift the bans for those accounts. In addition to lifting the ban on all the wrongfully banned accounts, Cheritz will also be compensating afflicted players. Compensation will be calculated based on the number of days the specific account was inactive.
Cheritz has already released the update to lift the ban on affected accounts!Here’s a link to the account that first posted the news…. HERE!
So what do you think about the recent backlash? If you have any more information to share on the recent Mystic Messenger bans please feel free to drop a line on this post! As always THANK YOU FOR READING!! If you like what you see, like this post or follow Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
Edit (10/12): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal for the MDSOA: Deluxe Edition, but the campaign did not raise enough for the MD: Echoes stretch goal. The final funding amount was $13,062 with 251 backers! The Deluxe Edition has a tentative release date of early 2017!
I know it’s been awhile since my last Kickstarter campaign post, but I was super busy with real life issues when this Kickstarter campaign started up. On top of that, I was a little on the fence about how exactly I was going to write this up, as it is a dual project Kickstarter. From what I gathered, Aeon Dream Studios is attempting to raise funding for a deluxe edition of their current project Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons. The deluxe edition will feature added bonuses such as additional stories, improvements to Shou’s route, improved backgrounds, POV stories and much more!
Early on in the campaign the funding goal for the deluxe edition was reached! So, right about now you guys are wondering why you should fund this campaign if the devs already reached the goal for Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeon- Deluxe Edition? Well that brings me to part two of the campaign… the sequel to MDSOA, Mystic Destinies: Echoes!
