[First Thoughts] Irresistible Mistakes

Voltage has been teasing us with this game for months and finally their newest app, Irresistible Mistakes is available for download!! In this game the MC has a one night stand with a complete stranger only to discover that her one time bed buddy happens to be one of her co-workers?! Voltage had me at one night stand! I have been so hyped for this game since the first time I saw the PV on Voltage’s official YouTube channel.

 

Irresistible Mistakes combines the office romance premise from games like Office Secrets and Our Two Bedroom Story, with the mature romance of In Your Arms Tonight and Finally in Love Again in order to create something that surpasses all of their other games up to this point!

Please if you are interested in the game, download the game for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area.  Continue reading “[First Thoughts] Irresistible Mistakes”

Melanin Monday: Otome Games/ Visual Novels Featuring Black & Brown Characters

Hey, hey all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers out there it’s Monday, and that means another Melanin Monday post!! For those of you just joining us, Melanin Monday is a  bi-weekly post series that I started for Black History Month, where I talk about Black and Brown skinned characters in anime, manga, video games, etc., but you guys loved it so much I decided to continue it!

Since this is an otome game blog, I figured at least one of these Melanin Monday posts should be about Black and brown characters in otome games/visual novels. So I compiled a list of games that featured characters with darker skin tones. This isn’t a comprehensive list of every game with dark skinned characters, but it does the trick for now. Also, most of these titles are English language visual novels since they tend to feature more characters of color than Japanese otome games… but, that’s a discussion for another day.

Why I’ve Been So Quiet…

First, I want to say that I’m going try to keep this post short, sweet, and to the point, because let’s be honest, if you really cared about why I’ve been kind of quiet on social media or on this blog in general, you’d have tried to reach out to me by now. I’m not accusing anyone of anything, I know how hectic life can be and heck I’ll admit that I’m terrible at keeping up with social media stuff in the first place, so I get it. This post is so you guys know that I’m not ignoring you because I necessarily want to… just, shit happens!

March has been an especially miserable month for me, I had a lot of great things planned for the blog this month, but every time I got ready to sit down and do them life decided to throw a wrench in my plans. Earlier this month, I split with my BF and while it was for the best, it’s tough… I’m still kind of bummed about the whole thing and honestly, it’s going to take awhile before I’ll be back to my old self.

Then a little while ago, my job let me know that they wouldn’t be able to extend my contract like they promised due to funding issues. My contract with them is up at the end of the month and the news has kind of put me in a serious bind… not to mention I was already pretty low because of the break up. So for the past few weeks I have been applying to various jobs, but I haven’t seen much headway there. So, I honestly don’t have time to monitor my social media channels and even less time for blogging.

All of the posts that came out this week were literally written an hour or two before I posted them and that was just about all I could manage, since I find it extremely hard to write when I have a lot on my mind. I just can’t get in the mood for it, so this week was kind of an impromptu hiatus…

I’m still trying to handle my stuff here in the real world, but I promise I will be back on my online grind starting on Sunday. I have a friend that recently started blogging and she’s been asking me to have blogging dates with her for the longest and we were finally able to get our schedules to sync up. So I’ll be working on some things I’ve been neglecting this weekend.

So, yeah, that’s why I’ve been quiet and that’s why I haven’t been my usual bubbly self. I want to say thank you to everyone both online and in person, I’m not going to name you guys ya’ll know who you are, for lending an ear to my woes and for just being so awesome and understanding. I’m not the type to talk about my problems that much, so for you all to take the time to listen to me talk about my issues and to offer encouragement… it really means a lot to me!

Ah, I almost forgot, I have a very special announcement for you guys…. it’s really really super special awesome!! But, I will hold off on announcing it until next week, since it will technically have an impact on how things here at Nice Job Breaking It, Hero are going to run from now on… but, don’t worry it’s a good thing, I promise!

Again, thank you all for being so understanding about everything while I get my stuff together… it’s been a long month and I really hope you guys are fairing better than I am right now!

Fangirl Moment: Star vs the Forces of Evil

It’s gonna get a little weird, gonna get a little wild this Fangirl Friday, because this week I’m covering an animated series that is anything but normal… I’m talkin’ rainbows, I’m talkin’ puppies, for this week’s Fangirl Moment post I wanted to write about the American animated series Star vs. the Forces of Evil!

Some of you should recognize Star as the topic that didn’t win last week’s Twitter poll, but I absolutely adore this show, so I figured why not cover it this week instead! Since the second season wrapped up a few months ago I am seriously suffering from Star withdrawal… so I hope this post will hold me over until the season 3 premiere later this Summer…
