The Man of My Dreams is a Horse: My Horse Prince-First Thoughts & Impressions

The internet is home to some truly bizarre stuff, so when I saw images of handsome man’s head superimposed on a horse’s body, I laughed along with the rest of you all and didn’t really think much of it… In fact, I think I assumed it was some ridiculous fan-made creation. So, when I found out that not only was this not a hoax, but a very real otome game called Uma no Prince-sama (renamed My Horse Prince for the English localization), I didn’t know how to feel.

I’m no stranger to strange animal dating games, they’re everywhere, from free mobile apps like Animal Boyfriend to commercial otoge like  Hatoful Boyfriend and Dandelion~ Wishes Brought to You, there are no shortage of human/animal titles on the market. Hell, I quite enjoyed Hatoful Boyfriend, so I figured the leap from pigeons to horses shouldn’t have been such a big deal… right?!

That Guy’s a Creepy Fanboy: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 3rd Liar

After dealing with the rage-aholic in the 2st Liar arc, I was already on endge when I started the 3rd Liar arc. This time around there were four potential Liars to choose from, SotaroJoeItaru, and Kunio; and I can say with all honesty, that I did not see this one coming at all, it was dumb luck that I picked the right liar this time around…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading! So without further ado, the 3rd Liar, Joe Yazawa.

So I was informed by a lovely reader from Tumblr, that including the Liar’s name in the title is a tad bit spoilery….and after I calmed down a bit and thought about it, I realized they had a point. So, I won’t include the names in any of the future review titles.

That Guy is a Mama’s Boy: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 1st Liar

I wanted to respect Voltage’s wishes to keep spoilers to a minimum so I waited a bit, before doing individual character reviews… But, it’s been a few days and most of the folks who want to play the game have pretty much already started playing…  So I figured it was finally safe to start posting these… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!  So first up is the 1st Liar, Shuto Matsuki!!

Falling in Love with the Lie: Liar! Uncover the Truth-Review

liar

So, Voltage Inc. just put out a new free to play mobile app, Liar: Uncover the Truth, which is a cross between their previous titles, My Forged Wedding and True Love Sweet Lies wrapped in a Phoenix Wright bun. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of freemium games and apps, so I was planning to pass this game up, but like always curiosity got the better of me and here I am once again entangled in Voltage’s romantic snare. I know I am on break, but I couldn’t resist posting this review… *shrugs* I really didn’t expect to fall in love with this game!

This is like Mystic Messenger 2.0, Liar uses some of the same interfaces and techniques that made MM so popular, without the real time aspect…and it works!Snoop through your lover’s social media pages, and press him for info to uncover the truth, is your man a liar or is he telling the truth?

[Update] Cheritz to Lift Bans on Improperly Banned Accounts

Edit (9/28): Cheritz has made an official announcement about the bans on their Tumblr page, HERE!

Screenshot_20160929-072100.png

First, I want to say thank you to Aurora6290 for sending me this tip! As many of you knowMystic Messenger players have been receiving Permanent Bans for reasons not associated with the Time Modification Cheat. Current ban triggers are as follows:

  • Using  Hourglasses to replay multiple missed chats, as far as I’ve heard using Hourglasses to replay one missed chat at a time has not resulted in a banned account.
  • Pausing or remaining idle for too long during chat rooms, though the exact amount of time idle that triggers the ban has yet to be disclosed.
  • Quitting or closing the app in the middle of a chat room  also results in a ban notice.

The recent influx of non-time manipulation related bans has caused a bit of a stir in the community and applaud all of you that took the time to reach out to Cheritz about the issue. Well, Cheritz was listening and they have reached out to all affected players.

Cheritz will be reviewing all of the improperly banned account reports and will be taking action to lift the bans for those accounts. In addition to lifting the ban on all the wrongfully banned accounts, Cheritz will also be compensating afflicted players. Compensation will be calculated based on the number of days the specific account was inactive.

Cheritz has already released the update to lift the ban on affected accounts! Here’s a link to the account that first posted the news…. HERE!

So what do you think about the recent backlash? If you have any more information to share on the recent Mystic Messenger bans please feel free to drop a line on this post! As always THANK YOU FOR READING!! If you like what you see, like this post or follow Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!

Mystic Messenger Bans and the Petition

Edit (9/25): I have been receiving a large number of comments from players that are receiving bans for reasons other than turning back the time on their devices. If you feel that you have been wrongfully banned, contact Cheritz directly and submit an official report on the issue through: help@cheritz.com!

Edit 9/24: The petition was removed from Change.org due to negative backlash on twitter. The creator posted an explanation on Instagram, but it has since been removed

*Cheritz has lifted bans on all wrongfully banned accounts, read the full post, HERE!*

I really thought that I was done writing about Mystic Messenger, but the recent update has many in the fandom up in arms and I think it’s time I gave opinion on the matter.

I do not stand behind that silly Petition, in fact, I think the whole thing is utterly ridiculous! For those who don’t know, Cheritz just released an update that changed some things about the Mystic Messenger experience:

  1. Players that were/are resetting their device times to replay missed chats will now have their accounts PERMANENTLY BANNED!
  2. Max Speed in chats will now be reserved for VIP members only. VIP membership can be  purchased from Cheritz, HERE.
  3. Cheritz will also be restricting the number of save files players can use for free.
  4. Finally, 5 HOURGLASSES will be used every time players load a save file!

First, I see absolutely nothing wrong with these updates. Cheritz is still a relatively small developer and they spent a lot of time and money to make this game a reality. So, it only makes sense that they would try to recoup some of their investments. Developing a game, especially a voiced game requires a considerable amount of money and time. And the fact that Cheritz decided to make the game a free to play app is very generous on their part! So when I saw that some angry fan went out and created petitions against Cheritz on Change.org, I was a little pissed off and here’s why…

*This post is my opinion and it’s cool if you don’t agree with it, I am open to hearing what everyone has to say, but I WILL NOT TOLERATE any personal attacks. Do not use my comments section to attack anyone, be sure to keep all discussions tame.
