So with all the hype surrounding the newer Voltage Inc games, the older games aren’t getting as much attention. By older I mean those hidden gems that don’t appear on the Voltage Visual Romance Apps Facebook page, nor do they have fancy gifs on their Tumblr. No these unsung heroes are the forgotten foundation of the Voltage empire, and for many the start a long-term love affair with 2D pixel men…So I just wanted to throw a small spotlight on an older game by writing about my first ever otome A Knights Devotion. Yes, scoff if you want to, Voltage was my first introduction to the otome genre three years ago, and I haven’t look back since! I still remember playing it under the register at my barista job…*sigh* memories.
So this started off as a rant about the Voltage Inc visual novel Kissed by the Baddest Bidder (KBTBB), but the more I began writing, the more it became a tribute to Soryu Oh.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have some fundamental issues with some key aspects of KBTBB, but I’ll save it for another day. But, then this post kinda sat in my drafts for weeks while I played other games, because KBTBB and I had a bit of a falling out of sorts, I just need to see other people for awhile. It happens like that sometimes. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon this birthday post on the Voltage Visual Romance Facebook Page:
To be honest, I had forgotten how HOT Soryu is with his hair down…*cough* So in honor of his birthday on Feb. 17, I decided to go back and replay Soryu’s Season 1, and remember just what drew me to the cool mobster in the first place…
*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…*
So while browsing my Facebook trending topics, I stumbled upon this blip on NintendoNews, about a brand new legendary Pokemon, Magearna. I dunno how I feel about this one…don’t we have enough legendary Pokemon already?
So apparently the Pokemon was created by humans over 500 years ago and will make it’s debut in a brand new Pokemon movie set to be released later this year. It kind of reminds me of a music box… I’m not overly thrilled by this announcement, but I will withhold serious judgement until more information is available about the Pokemon.
What do you think about the new Pokemon? Do you think GameFreak will even distribute the Pokemon outside of Japan? Are you guys excited about Pokemon20? What about Pokemon Go? Feel free to comment and share, and as always THANK YOU for reading!
