My Lover is an Ice Cold Criminal: Astoria Fates Kiss- Hydra Season 2

It’s taken me awhile, but I’m finally jumping back into the world of Greek gods and godly monsters. While season 1 focused on developing the relationship between Hydra and the MC, Hydra’s season 2 stories focused on the MC and Hydra’s attempts to maintain the relationship. Over the course of the season we see the pair tackle obstacle after obstacle as they learn to trust in themselves and each other.

It’s been a few months since the Hercules incident, and the MC’s life is definitely on the up and up, both professionally and privately. That is until our plucky MC takes a case that will shake Olympus to its very core! If you want to see what I had to say about Hydra’s Season 1, click HERE!

The Guy I Kinda Like is a Greek God: Astoria Fates Kiss- Hades Season 1 Review

 

Because of some impromptu snow days I finally got the opportunity to play Hades’s season 1 stories and OMG, it was everything I could have hoped for and more! He is such a gentleman and I found myself swooning over him just as much as the MC (maybe even more). I don’t think I have anything bad to say about the guy, but maybe I’m biased, I’ve had my eye on him from the beginning. But, I do want to take a moment to applaud Voltage and Astoria Fates Kiss for the inclusion of POC (People of Color)! Several of the characters in this route, come in various shades and hues, and I cannot tell you just how happy that makes me! As a person of color it makes me super happy to see characters that look like me in an otome game. It’s rare that POC are given primary roles in games, TV, and other media, so to have a love interest with a little color is quite the welcome treat!

Mini Review- Astoria: Fate’s Kiss

So as many of you may know Astoria: Fate’s Kiss is the sequel/ second season of Labyrinths of Astoria

Now that Season 1 has come to a close, in preparation for our second season, we’d like to announce a name change, from “Labyrinths of Astoria” to “Astoria: Fate’s Kiss”! Love can be like like a labyrinth – first, you have to fight your way through challenges to be with the one you love! So then, the next stage is up to fate! (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

Voltage/AmeMix

I am so hyped and I’ve only played the prologue! Let me start off by praising Astoria and Voltage for including POC, and for those who don’t know that is “People of Color“, as characters in the game! It is refreshing to see characters of all shades and hues as side characters and main characters! I mean holy Hera, even Zeus, the king of the gods is black…and not kinda Black, he’s Black, Black! Like a chocolate dipped dream! Yes! It is so rare to see POC characters in otome, and I for one hope that Voltage USA, keeps it up with their future AmeMix releases!

great job

Mini Review: Labyrinths of Astoria (AKA Astoria: Fate’s Kiss)

Banner_LoA.jpg

So I wasn’t a huge fan of the previous Voltage USA titles, they all just fell flat for me…I felt that instead of adapting the existing Voltage games for an American audience, Voltage should have been more consistent in updating the stuff they already had! So when Voltage announced that they would be releasing Voltage USA 2.0,  AmeMix, let’s just say I was less than enthused…To say I was hesitant about the new venture is a bit of an understatement, to be honest I had even resigned myself to completely ignore its existence… but curiosity…and a lot of good press later had me downloading the first (and only) game in the series: Labyrinths of Astoria (now Astoria: Fates Kiss) onto my Ipad Mini…and there it stayed unopened and unplayed for weeks!

That is until I received a ‘Coming Soon’ notification for Hades’ Main Story 1… and Lord help me… that man can get it!
