I Slept With the Bartender?!: Irresistible Mistakes- Go Okubo Main Story

I misjudged Go in my first review of Irresistible Mistakes, I was fooled by yet another Voltage Inc. character bio, you’d think I’d have learned my lesson by now, but nope… Voltage has Go Okubo billed as a “sweetheart con artist”, which couldn’t have been further from the truth and it’s because of this misleading bio that I almost passed up on one of the best routes in the game.

Go bio

I went into this route expecting it to fail, but after playing that first chapter I was singing a completely different tune! Go blew Toshiaki’s route out of the water and I am not ashamed to admit that this is my new favorite (we’ll see how I feel after I play Toma’s route 😉 )! If you want a general overview of Irresistible Mistakes, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and will include links to the other character reviews I will write for the game.

I Slept With My Boss?!: Irresistible Mistakes- Shunichiro Tachibana Main Story

After a night of heavy drinking, the MC discovers that she slept with her boss, Creative Director, Shunichiro Tachibana. Embarrassed and unable to remember the sexual encounter, she tries to put the whole affair behind her, but when she’s assigned to work with him on a high profile ad campaign, she finds that she can’t help but remember their night of drunken passion. Things start to look up for our heroine when Tachibana seemingly reciprocates her feelings, but is it love or is he just looking for a fling?

Tachibana profile.PNG

I was genuinely surprised by this route and by Tachibana, Voltage definitely made the one night stand premise seem way more sordid in the promotional material, than it was in the actual route. So, I was kind of expecting something along the lines of one of those cheesy soap operas my Nana likes to watch every day, but this wasn’t anything like that. If you want a general overview of Irresistible Mistakes, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and will include links to the other character reviews I will write for the game.

[First Thoughts] Irresistible Mistakes

Voltage has been teasing us with this game for months and finally their newest app, Irresistible Mistakes is available for download!! In this game the MC has a one night stand with a complete stranger only to discover that her one time bed buddy happens to be one of her co-workers?! Voltage had me at one night stand! I have been so hyped for this game since the first time I saw the PV on Voltage’s official YouTube channel.

 

Irresistible Mistakes combines the office romance premise from games like Office Secrets and Our Two Bedroom Story, with the mature romance of In Your Arms Tonight and Finally in Love Again in order to create something that surpasses all of their other games up to this point!

The Stubborn Prince That Stole My Heart: Be My Princess- Joshua Lieben

Be My Princess is one of my all time favorite Voltage games, I have played each of the routes in this game numerous times over the years and they never get old. So, because I’m a bit of a nostalgia kick and because today, Jan. 31st is the birthday of my favorite prince, I figured he’d be the best character to kick off my nostalgia fueled Voltage reviews… I wish, I could say this was going to be a proper review like the others I’ve written in the past, but I absolutely adore this man, so I’m afraid I won’t be able to contain my fangirling this time around… sorry, not sorry 😛

josh

If you read my Top 10 Voltage Guys list, you’ll know that Prince Joshua Lieben from Be My Princess is one of my first Voltage guys and my third favorite guy overall, but at the end of the day, Josh is the number one prince in my heart!! He’s an awkward and stubborn mess and even after all these years I still find myself falling for him all over again!

Falling for an Eccentric Back-Alley Doctor: Dangerous Seduction- Haruma Fujioka

*clears throat* It’s about damn time! I have been waiting for this route to come out for what seems like forever and Voltage just kind of slipped it in under the radar… really?! If I hadn’t checked the Voltage FB page the other day, I might have missed this one…

haruma

Haruma Fujioka is like an over sexed version of Ichthys from Star Crossed Myth, which given the character bio above, was wholly unexpected. It’s no secret that I don’t like flirty characters, at the best of times, but when you also have the flirt moonlight as his own comic relief….*sigh* If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

The Guy I Like is a Sexy Pop Star: Scandal in the Spotlight-Kyohei Rikudoh

So when Voltage”cancelled” Scandal in the Spotlight a few months ago, there was a bit of fan backlash, I mean really, who doesn’t want to date an entire Japanese boy band? So, imagine my surprise when I saw the announcement that Voltage was planning on bringing the app back from the dead!! That almost never happens, when Voltage kills an app that’s it, or at the very least it takes years for them revive it *cough* LOVE LETTER FROM THIEF X *cough* Anyway, so to hype fans up for the revival, Voltage is offering Kyohei Rikudoh’s Main Story, in it’s entirety for FREE until Feb. 2nd! Of course I’d already bought the story ages ago, so this promotion is completely lost on me, but hey, folks should definitely take part in this promotion…it’s not every day Voltage gives a story away for free…

Kyohei.PNG

I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw Kyo, I thought he’d be an arrogant, selfish prick, like all of guys Voltage has a tendency to force on us during their initial app releases… But, Kyohei Rikudoh was nothing like that, in fact Kyo is one of the sweetest Voltage guys out there…

I Date Hot Guys on My iPad: A Love Affair with Virtual Bishies

This post has been a work in progress for over a year, but I could never quite work out how write it out, until the other day when I went to play a game in my backlog and I actually groaned… can you believe that?!

Lately, I’ve been so caught up with all the schedules and reviews, that I’ve kind of lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place: because I love otome games and I want to share that love with the world. Ha ha, it sounds silly when I write it out like that, but it’s been a long time since I really, truly enjoyed playing a game. It’s gotten to be such a chore really, buying games, playing them, writing the reviews, editing… somewhere along the way, playing otome games became a routine… *shudders* it became work and that’s something I never wanted to happen! Sure there have been games that I genuinely liked playing, in fact I played a game the other day that brought back a little of that old spark, but the magic that I had when I first started playing otome games has been gone for a little while now.  So, it’s high time I reminded myself why I fell in love with otome games in the first place, before I wind up resenting them altogether.

Let me warn you guys now, this post is more for me than it is for you guys, I really needed to remember what it was that drew me to otoges. So this won’t be one of those pretty posts that I fuss over endlessly until the wording is just right and expect a lot of “…” so if you’re still with me, I want to write about how I got into otome games…

Falling for a Cunning Spy: Dangerous Seduction- Asuka Hino

When I first saw that Voltage had skipped the sexy doc’s route I was pissed, I have been waiting for a new route to be released since I finished Arimura’s. So, imagine my surprise when I saw that Voltage decided to release Asuka Hino’s route first!

asuka-1

Asuka Hino was so different from what I imagined, I had this image of him in my head before I started this route and he turned it right on its head… in a good way. I never expected to like this route as much as I did, in fact I was actually thinking of skipping it all together, I’m not really into the whole younger guy thing, but I’m so glad I didn’t!  If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

Falling for a Cold Hacker: Dangerous Seduction- Yasumi Arimura

So it’s no secret that this was the guy I was most looking forward to pursuing in the game… I have a thing for the cold, emotionless characters. Maybe it’s the challenge of breaking down their walls that sets my fangirl heart aflame or maybe I’m secretly a masochist…

thumbnail_img_4452

Whatever the reason, Yasumi Arimura had my heart from the first time I saw that cold expressionless mug in the prologue! But what really sold me on this guy was the masterful way he hurled insults…he had me at “dumbass”… I kid. This route was a roller coaster ride of emotions from start to finish, and even now I don’t know if I’ll be able to recover. If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

Falling for an Arrogant Sniper: Dangerous Seduction- Masaharu Ryuzaki

First I should probably say that I don’t usually go for the arrogant types that Voltage seems to be hellbent on shoving down our throats all the time. In fact I tend to avoid them all together. Full blown jerks tend to rub me the wrong way, but somehow I found myself playing Masaharu’s route anyway…

masa-snippet

I’m going to try and be fair with this review, but like I said… I’m not a fan of guys like Masaharu. This route took me a lot longer to play than I originally intended and that’s because I spent most of my time shouting expletives at my poor innocent iPad…  If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

[First Thoughts] Dangerous Seduction

There I was minding my own business, browsing Twitter, when I saw that Voltage had finally decided to release a brand new app, Dangerous Relationship! So I immediately dropped everything and downloaded the game from the App store!!

So first things first, the art is a bit different from their other games and I have to admit that when I first saw it I wasn’t really a fan of it, but it grew on me… Okay, I’m lying, I’m still on the fence about the art style, but the premise more than makes up for that!

Can You Love the Real Me?- Liar! Uncover the Truth: Mr. Right Lovers Route Main Story Review

When I finished writing up all of the Liar Routes, I said I’d write reviews for the Lovers Routes too. Well here I am finally making good on that promise! Actually I was waiting for Voltage to release Mr. Right’s Lovers Route before I started in on these reviews. I just had to know if there was any truth to that plot twist at the end of the 9th Liar arc… and boy did Voltage go out with a bang on this one!!  I wasn’t ready for all of the feels!

Since this is the first Lovers Route review, I want to clarify some things… *ahem* Unlike the Liar Main Stories, the Lovers Routes are not free. Let me repeat that for the folks in the back; THE LOVERS ROUTES ARE NOT FREE! Lovers Routes can be purchased with coins, which players can purchase with cash!! The 12 chapter Main Stories cost 800 coins while the 3 chapter Epilogues cost 450 coins, which if you get both is roughly $8.00 total. But, Voltage has been giving away free daily login coins so if you horde coins you can purchase stories without spending any cash.

Now that that is out of the way, I should also mention that there are only FIVE Lovers Routes, one each for Liars 6-9 and one for Mr. Right. So, if you want to romance one of the earlier liars, you are plum out of luck! If you want a spoiler free review of Liar! Uncover the Truth, click… HERE! If you want to read more about Mr. Right from the Liar main stories, click right, HERE!!

That Guy is My Soulmate: Liar! Uncover the Truth- Mr. Right

We started this journey with ten “perfect” guys, each more impressive than the last…But, nine of the ten are dirty rotten liars, despicable men with no qualms about bending the truth to suit their needs… (The guys are not in order)

We unmasked nine liars, exposing them for the scum that they are: Mama’s Boys, Gambling Addicts, Fanboys, Mobsters, a Divorcee, Scam Artists, Raging Lunatics, Cheaters, and even a  “Drug Addict”! It’s been a long road and there’s only one man left standing…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

Since not everyone that reads my blog has finished the game I ask that you all keep your comments as spoiler free as humanly possible rather than stating the name of the liars instead refer to them by their liar number (ie. Liar X) and for the victorious man, “Mr. Right”… Thanks in advance! 😀

That Guy is a Divorcee: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 9th Liar

Here it is the very last liar! We started this journey with ten guys that seemed too good to be true… wealthy businessmen, international sports stars, and more. But, the thing is when something appears to be too good to be true, chances are that it is… Nine of the ten are dirty rotten liars, despicable men with no qualms about bending the truth to suit their needs… (The guys are not in order)

We unmasked eight liars, exposing them for the scum that they are: Mama’s Boys, Gambling Addicts, Fanboys, Mobsters, Scam Artists, Raging Lunatics, Cheaters, “Drug Addict”, and now we’ve made it to the final stretch!

That Guy is a Scam Artist: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 8th Liar

Finally, Voltage has decided to go back to their roots with Liar 8! After the rather tame lies of the last two (by all means disagree with me if you want), I was expecting something much more forgivable, but nope, the 8th Liar is a despicable dude (and I love it)! This time around there were three potential Liars to choose from, Sotaro ShigaItaru Yuikawa and Azusa Kurono; and I really, really, really did not see this one coming… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

That Guy is an Addict: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 7th Liar

Voltage is really pulling out the big guns with these last few Liars! We’ve had an adulterer, a gambler, a gangster, and now a drug addict?!  I’m actually afraid to see what Liars 8 and 9 have in store for us… This time around there were four potential Liars to choose from, Sotaro ShigaKazumi KagamiItaru Yuikawa and Azusa Kurono; and I can honestly say that I thought it was another guy… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

*sobs* I’m sorry ya’ll but this liar reveal hit me kind of hard, I really wanted him to stick around a bit longer! *weeps* Give me a moment… *ahem* So somehow or another Liar! turned into an episode of Married to the Mob and as much as I want to deny it, this liar was kind of obvious in hindsight.

So far the MC has had to deal with mama’s boys, raging lunatics, creepy fanboys, and now a gambling addict! After the shenanigans of the other Liars I was prepared for the worst and Voltage exceeded my expectations…this guy is despicable! This time around there were three potential Liars to choose from, Keima Katagiri, Sotaro Shiga, and Azusa Kurono. The minute I saw the title I knew exactly who this Liar was, hell I knew that he was a liar back in the 2nd Liar arc, the cheap bastard! If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

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.

My Lover is an Antisocial God: Star Crossed Myth- Krioff Review

I have been sucked into Voltage Hell yet again… Right after I finished writing my review for Dui, Voltage up and released the main story and epilogue for yet another Department of Punishments god, Krioff. And we all know that I’m a fan of the Punishments gods, so without any hesitation I dropped the $3.99 on Krioff’s main story…

Krioff 1.PNG

Krioff is the stoic god of Aries and despite his rather…um, cold personality, he is by far one of the kindest gods in the Department of Punishments. Don’t get me wrong, he’s no Dui, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a big ‘ol softie underneath all the thorns! Plus, I think Krioff is my ideal god… I kind of broke the Ending Meter with all the right Blessed End choices on my first playthrough lol…

That Guy has Anger Issues: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 2nd Liar Toya Kashi

After the crazy borderline incest in the 1st Liar arc, I had no idea what to expect from the 2nd Liar arc.

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?

My Lover is the Leader of the Shinsengumi-Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Isami Kondo

If you guys remember, Isami Kondo was one of the routes I was most looking forward to in this game! My usual go to are tsunderes and megane intellectuals, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself drawn to the mature types more and more. Well, in Era of Samurai: Code of Love the good humored Shinsengumi leader, Isami Kondo definitely fits the bill!

Isami Kondo wasn’t a playable character in Hakuouki, so I didn’t quite know what to expect this time around. So, I was basing everything on his portrayal in the prologue and in each of the other routes in the game… and you know what, Kondo is pretty consistent across the board.

My Last First Kiss: It’s A Date- Ichiya Misono

Here we are with my second attempt at an epilogue review to hold you guys over while I work on some main reviews. This story takes place immediately after the events of the Main Story and it focuses on the MC and Ichiya’s transition from “enemies” to lovers. The story serves as the epilogue to the Main Story and consists of three chapters. It also comes with it’s own special image.

My Lover is the Silent Swordsman of the Shinsengumi- Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Hajime Saito

So now that the Fans’ Choice Awards are over, Voltage has started releasing stories again and first up is the one character I have been looking forward to the most: Hajime Saito! I have been patiently awaiting this silent swordsman since the day this game was announced… I love Hajime Saito. I’m going to say something that is going to piss off the Soji Okita fans…*inhales deeply* Hajime Saito is my favorite member of the Shinsengumi!

I went into this story expecting Voltage to bring me the moon on a string and I got that and more. I didn’t think anything could be more heartbreakingly tragic than Soji Okita’s route, but I was mistaken. Hajime Saito was definitely worth the wait!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jul. 17th to Jul. 23rd

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Okay guys I have some big news… Remember the summer job I mentioned back in June? Well, my paperwork was finally finished and I finally have a start date: My official start date is August 1st! Woohoo!!! So what kind of job is it? I will be doing what I love to do, research! My alma mater received a grant from the Department of Health to take part in a public health research project and I was brought on to work on the data analysis portion of the project! I’ll also be administering some of the surveys for the project too!! But, what’s really exciting about this project is that it is completely run and operated by women of color!! So I am doubly exciting to be working with such a dynamic team of women, doing something that I love!!

So what is going to top that? Not much, the rest of my week seems pretty mundane in comparison, but I’m gonna share it anyway!! I saw the new Ghostbusters movie, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it! The film was much better than I anticipated… Hmm, let’s see,  I went to Six Flags with some friends which was fun until I realized I’d gotten sun burn on my face… Reason #1 why I limit my outdoor activity time during the Summer…

My Lover is the Master Swordsman of the Shinsengumi- Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Soji Okita

When I first saw Soji Okita in the prologue, he scared me a bit. He just looks like someone who’d kills indiscriminately, but after playing Hijikata’s route my opinion changed. He seemed like a genuinely okay, if not a little too playful, guy, so when Voltage released his story earlier than expected I decided to buy it.

I take it back…I take back all of the cruel things I said about this guy, he was a much better character than I originally anticipated. I loved Soji in Hakuouki so I was expecting Voltage’s version to pale in comparison, but what I got was a heartbreakingly sweet portrayal of a very tragic character. There is definitely more to this cold swordsman than his reputation would have you believe.

My Lover is the Demon Deputy of the Shinsengumi- Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Toshizo Hijikata

No matter which adaption of the Shinsengumi story you play, Hijikata is always the same, so I kind of knew what to expect from Hijikata before I even started this route. Well Voltage did not disappoint, he turned out exactly as I would imaging the Vice-commander of the Shinsengumi to be.

Toshizo Hijikata is the terrifying right hand man and friend of Shinsengumi leader Isami Kondo. His cold stare and commanding battle prowess have earned him the nickname Demon Deputy among the Shinsengumi men. He is a man of honor an dignity, willing to do whatever it takes for the Shinsengumi, even if it means sacrificing something he holds dear. But is that all there is to the Demon Deputy? What does Hijikata the man want?

[First Thoughts] Era of Samurai: Code of Love

*Well, Voltage forced my hand on this one, so I’m posting this earlier than I expected, to make room another review next week…*

So, finally Voltage has decided to jump on the Shinsengumi bandwagon with their newest release; Era of Samurai: Code of Love. I have no idea why they saw fit to replace Shinsengumi with Samurai, at this point in the game it’s not like Western audiences are unfamiliar with the Shinsengumi especially with the Hakuoki series still dominating the western otoge market… But, I’m sure they had their reasons…

IMG_2584.PNG

I have played a couple of games featuring the Shinsengumi, some were really good…and others not so much, so I’m really curious to see what kind of spin Voltage plans on putting on the historical samurai romance premise (that they didn’t already cover in Sakura Amidst Chaos/ Samurai Love Ballad).

[First Thoughts] Bad Boys Do It Better

Edit: So, I seriously considered editing this post, which I wrote after only playing the prologue, as my opinion of the game has since changed. But, I kind of like the feel of this post, so in the end I didn’t change a thing. 

So, Voltage must love high school romances, because they keep cranking these bad boys out like there aren’t any other otoge premises to choose from. Do I sound bitter, well you bet I’m bitter…I am so tired of high school romances, I thought we were getting somewhere with After School Affairs. At least in that game you play as a high school teacher, but, no, Voltage Inc is taking us back to school with their newest title, Bad Boys Do It Better!

Bad Boys Do it Better

What’s with all the highlights?

As you can no doubt tell from my glowing introduction, I am not overly excited about this game. In fact I’m expecting to be pleasantly disappointed, yet again by yet another foray into the rose colored spring time of youth, but I’ve been surprised by Voltage before, so we’ll see…So without further ado, lets get this ball rolling!

The Silent Butler Who Stole My Heart: Butler Until Midnight- Kyo Aizawa

My writer’s block is finally over!!! Yes, now I can finally get down to business, and defeat the Huns I mean finally bang out some more reviews…I finally had time for another Voltage route and this time it’s one that you all voted on!! It’s taken me awhile, but this character was chosen by you guys about four weeks ago during that week’s poll. Well I listened, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with this choice, give yourselves a pat on the back this was and excellent route.

Kyo InfoCard.PNGI have been wanting to play this route for some time now, yet I never could find the time to. Ever since I saw his blank, expressionless face in the prologue, I knew that I just had to play his route and learn the reason behind it. The title of  cool loner does not do him justice, there is so much emotion beneath his blank stare if you only take the time to look.

Top 5 “Worst” Voltage Inc Games

Voltage Inc has certainly come up with so many amazing games, but, there are some that just don’t quite hit the mark. I don’t hate them per se, they’re just not the best. So this isn’t so much a list of games that I hate, but more a list of games that could be better. So this was a hard list to come up with, I enjoy different aspects of each and every Voltage Inc game for different reasons. These games are on here because of my feelings about the entire game, and in no way a reflection of the individual characters in the game. So in short, I may like certain characters in each of the games on the list, but the overall game not so much.

control your emotions

Before you all start grabbing your torches and pitchforks, this list is purely my opinion…You are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me if you want, by all means leave a comment and suggest better “worst” games. So without further ado here we go: My Top 5 “Worst” Voltage Inc Games.

The Cold IT Executive Who Stole My Heart: My Wedding and the 7 Rings-Kai Fujisawa

*In light of the incidents on Tumblr…I’m pushing up my timeline and publishing this a week earlier than originally planned*

I finally managed to find the time to tackle some of these Voltage games from my backlog! While I have the time I’m going to bang out as many of these as I can. So first up is Kai Fujisawa!

Initially, I was not overly excited about My Wedding and the 7 Rings, in fact I was quite content to forgo this addition to the Voltage lineup. My Forged Wedding was one of my favorite games, and the fake marriage premise was played out for me. But, that was before I saw this guy, the minute I saw Kai’s character design, I started singing a completely different tune. Kai is the calculating aloof type, both in his personal and in his professional life. Which makes him the perfect fit as Sanno Corporation’s Special Executive of IT Solutions. He is ruthless, not stopping at anything to get what he wants and if that means marrying the MC and having a loveless marriage…then so be it.

*Disclaimer: I don’t own these images, they belong to Voltage Inc…and this goes without saying, but there may be minor SPOILERS under the cut…*

Mini Review: My Wedding and the 7 Rings

So, because Voltage is putting out new games and stories faster than I can play them all, my backlog is extremely long right now. Every time I tackle a game, Voltage puts out another one, so finding the time to play them all has been hard to do. However, I did manage to find the time to play through a few games, this was one of those games.

IMG_1661

A little over a year ago, Voltage released the English language version of  My Wedding and the 7 Rings a spin-off of the extremely popular, My Forged Wedding (MFW). The new game takes place in the same universe as the MFW series, and even features two of the love interests from the previous game, with a slightly modified back story.  Continue reading “Mini Review: My Wedding and the 7 Rings”

My Lover is a Stern God: Star Crossed Myth-Zyglavis Review

So here I am again binge playing a game on the first day of its release, but Zyglavis was just too good to pass up! I was pleantly surprised by this route, it is awesome! In the beginning Zyglavis is like a mix of Scorpio and Eisuke Ichinomiya, what with the constant spew of insults and the three second response time limit…But the more I played the more I enjoyed the route. This was a rare treat, and I am more than happy to give up a little sleep for this route!

IMG_0999.PNG

Despite his initial coldness, Zyglavis is secretly the most compassionate of all the gods. Plus he’s gorgeous, just look at him, that long flowing hair, those penetrating eyes…

*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…*

Mini Review: Remembering A Knight’s Devotion

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.

The Robotic Butler Who Stole My Heart: Butler Until Midnight-Tomoki Matsuba

*This has literally been sitting in my drafts for a month…lol*

So while taking a break from Astoria, I managed to find time for Votage’s newest game Butler Until Midnight…I must have died and gone to otoge fangirl heaven! Voltage didn’t have to try hard to sell me their newest game, Butler Until Midnight, I was down from the first video on their YouTube channel! I mean, butlers! Frickin, BUTLERS!!!! *cough* Ahem, *cough* I was excited for this game. Of course, there was one character that caught my eye, Tomoki Matsuba.

IMG_0345

Unlike Yuma and some of the other guys, he seemed like the ideal butler type. He was everything I could have hoped for and more. In the beginning, Tomoki, is a harsh perfectionist with an impeccably accurate internal clock (homeboy can calculate the time down to the second). But, before I knew it this butler really wormed his way into my heart…

The Guy I Kinda Like is Unfriendly: My Last First Kiss- Ichiya Misono Season 1 Main Story

What can I say, I have a type…

So first off, is it me or does Ichiya remind anyone of Ryoki from the manga Hot Gimmick?

  1. They both lived in the same apartment complex as their love interest.
  2. They both terrorized their love interests as children (and to some extent when they grew up).
    -Ryoki pushed his down a flight of stairs, while Ichiya stole the MC’s stuffed bunny and locked her on the roof for hours in the rain.
  3. They both want the MC to be their girlfriend to dissuade an an unwanted suitor
  4. Both guys had messed up home lives
    -Ichiya’s parents divorced when he was in junior high, while Ryoki’s parents divorced later in the manga, but they were distant for a long time prior to the split. His dad even had an affair…
