F#@k, Marry, Kill Otome Edition – Lost in Secular Love

Couldn’t think of a game on my own so I turned to twitter and as always, you guys came through! Thanks to everyone who participated, I really loved seeing your picks!

 

There was a nice mix of suggestions—some of the games I had played, some I hadn’t, but I decided to go with Meg’s (@PearlyShelves) choice—Lost in Secular Love. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the game, Lost in Secular Love is a chinese otome game developed by Yetu Games. In the game you play as Qiye, the daughter of a noble family that has fallen on hard times. Not wanting you to suffer, your mother sends you to a local temple in hopes of marrying one of the monks there, Zhi Kong. 

Lost in Secular Love

I’m going to be honest I haven’t played this game so I know absolutely nothing aside from the fact that all of the love interests are monks… and there is just something kind of ironic about having an otome game that revolves around romancing monks… Trust me, this game is on my list, but this post is based solely on other reviews and character bios—it’s kinda more fun that way, doncha think?

Blerdy Otome 5th Anniversary – Fave Posts from 2015

Can you believe I’ve been blogging for five years?! I’ve come a long way since my Nice Job Breaking It Hero days and while I’m always looking towards the future, every now and again I like to take a look back and reflect on my past. So this year I’m going to share some of my favorite posts from every year I’ve been blogging!!

Kicking things off with 2015! I was just getting my start back then and I didn’t really have a “style” so to speak, so I just kinda wrote whatever popped into my head… with some interesting results.

Cherry Magic!: Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! – Vol. 1 BL Manga Review

I’m not gonna lie, the only reason I picked up Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! is because it had one of those obnoxiously long light novel-esque titles. It’s absolutely bonkers and I love it—especially the idea that staying a virgin for 30 years would somehow be rewarded with magic powers. I missed out… but, let’s not talk about that right now…

This is my first Yuu Toyota series and a quick look at her Baka Updates profile revealed that she’s penned a hell of a lot of shoujo series and a single seinen series about a single dad raising his daughter alongside his recently divorced friend, that looks like it might have some boys love leanings. But, since I’ve never read that series I had no IDEA what to expect, but based on the premise and the title, I figured this was going to be a fairly lighthearted read.

Thrifty Gaming: Games That Won’t Blow Your Budget #61

Hey there Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, I know I missed the last two Thursdays of posts let’s blame that on my leaking ceiling… but, it’s once again that special time of the week—Thrifty Thursday!

In a world where it’s all about the almighty dollar, sometimes it’s a little tough to make our pennies stretch enough to accommodate our hobbies. But, there are plenty of ways to balance your budget while still enjoying the things you love, you just have to be a little thrifty about it. So, I created Thrifty Gaming in order to spotlight some lesser known indie titles that are both entertaining an affordable.

If you’re a new follower or someone who has been following since my Nice Job Breaking It Hero days and have been gone for awhile, here’s a refresher… Thrifty Gaming, is a weekly post series where I spotlight three games/visual novels that are under $10.00. These can be mobile games, PC games, and a few times I have found some nice indie console titles too. The list used to focus on just otome games and romance visual novels, but after requests from a few readers I have since expanded to other gaming genres. I don’t include sales or limited time offers, each title has to be consistently priced at $10.00 or less without any promotions to be included in this line up.

Note, these are not reviews, rather recommendations so your mileage may vary with some of these titles. This week’s post will include a brief synopsis and links to each game so you can add them to your gaming library! You don’t have to break the bank to enjoy your hobbies, so save a little bread and check this week’s thrifty gaming picks!
