Time Hollow- Game Review

*So this is my first non-otoge review…let me know what you think of it!*

What if you had the power to change the past with just the flick of a pen? Would you use it? What about the consequences? Are they worth it?

These are the questions Ethan Kairos must answer, when he wakes up one morning to find a strange wormhole at the head of his bed. When he reaches inside he finds a strange green pen that allows him to open holes in time!

Time Hollow is a 2008 Nintendo DS single-player adventure visual novel. Written by Junko Kawano, it serves as the spiritual successor to the 2001 Playstation 2 game Shadows of Memories (which is also a really great game).

Fangirl Moment: Personal Preference

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m shifting gears a lot, instead of the usual, I’m going to cover something I’ve been meaning to write about for a while now…K-drama! Leafy suggested I write about K-dramas back when I first started blogging, but I never really got around to it…So this one is for you Leafy! 😀

I adore K-dramas, especially romantic comedies, they are just so funny and so over the top you can’t help but love them! So this week I’m going to cover one of my absolute favorite K-dramas, Personal Preference (aka Personal Taste). This drama follows Park Gae-in (Son Ye-jin), a down on her luck furniture designer, who has just been dumped by her long time boyfriend, Han Chang-ryul (a prick if you ask me). But, she doesn’t have time to mope, because her best friend, Kim In-hee, is getting married and has invited her to the ceremony. When she arrives to her horror she discovers that the groom is none other than her Ex!

While Gae-in is moping, elsewhere in South Korea, Jeon Jin-ho (played by the delicious Lee Min-Ho) is trying to keep his small architectural firm afloat by entering a bid for a project in the Dam Art Center. His biggest competition is the Future Construction, which is headed by the father of Chang-ryul. So in order to gain favor with the director of the project, Jin-ho starts looking for info about the director. He finds one name Sangojae, an architectural wonder created by legendary architect, Park Chul-han, who closed the place off to the public after the death of his wife. His daughter (Gae-in) now lives there alone, so Jin-ho comes up with a plan to sneak into Sangojae, by pretending to be gay so that Gae-in will take him in as a roommate. The plan works and the unlikely pair are forced to live together…Is this the beginning of an unlikely love affair?

PokeNews: Jirachi Distribution

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

Here we are again with another PokeNews report! We are now three months into the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Legendary Pokemon Release Event! We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of Pokken Tournament! We’ve got two legendary Pokemon under our belts already, but it’s time to spring forward and into the Advanced Generation of Pokemon games, with April’s Jirachi release!

jirachi

Jirachi, the Wish Pokemon, is a steel/psychic type from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Jirachi hibernate for a thousand years, during this time it is said that any wish written on the notes attached to its head will be granted once it awakens. Jirachi is also the only Pokemon capable of learning Doom Desire, which is its signature move. Like Mew and Celebi before it Jirachi had its own movie, Jirachi: Wish Makerthe one with the pretty lullaby.

Jirachi has been released before in two seperate Ruby and Sappire Events, so this will be the first time Jirachi will be available outside of its original games. I had one as a child, but that was only because I owned an Action Replay. So if you missed your chance to get Jirachi from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

My Lover Has Had a Hard Time: Amnesia: Memories-Ukyo Review

I can’t tell you how happy I am to be done with this game! It has been a long road to this point, and let me tell you, playing every route in a game is definitely a full time commitment. I have seen good, bad, and just plain ugly in this game, just to get to this point. So after watching Ukyo kill the MC with absolutely no warning what so ever in just about every bad ending of the game, I was a little curious about how his route would play out. I guess I was expecting some big character revelation or something, perhaps even a little explanation for his actions throughout the game…And you know what I got? Exactly that, this route is what is considered to be the canon route. Everything is explained, and I mean everything, the events of the other routes, Ukyo’s random bad endings, even Orion.

So, I landed every single bad ending this route had to offer (and there are SEVEN of them) before I could land even the normal ending. This route is not for the faint of heart, you really have to work to earn your happy ending!

*Side Note: I will not have an MC/Heroine section in this review…I feel that there just isn’t enough about her to fill an entire section in this game. I was actually really disappointed by the MC in this game.

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