Dooms series Review

"There is no horror if there is no fear. There is no fear if there is no horror."

No, dear readers, I'm not gonna be talking about id's "Doom" series. I'm sure there are enough mainstream reviewers to analyze those. What I have in mind, is to introduce you to "Dooms", probably the most infamous RPG Maker game series ever created. So without much delay, let's begin.


Minako ~Kikyou Shita Inaka de Murabito-tachi ni Netorareta Saiai no Tsuma~ Review

Title: Minako ~Kikyou Shita Inaka de Murabito-tachi ni Netorareta Saiai no Tsuma~
Original title: 美奈子 ~帰郷した田舎で村人たちに寝取られた最愛の妻~
Aliases: Minako ~The Most Loved Wife Seduced By Villagers On the Return to the Country~
Minako ~Beloved Wife Who Has Slept With the Villagers of Her Husband's Home Village~
Release date: 2014-12-18
English release date:  2015-04-24 (as a fan-patch)
Developer: Happy Life
English publisher: m1zuki

"Minako" (let's shorten the title to the manageable length) is not a visual novel, but rather an... I was going to say an RPG, but I would have been lying out of my ass. The more apt description would be "an adventure game made in RPG Maker".


Total Seacat Island Review

Title: Total Seacat Island
Release date: 2013-05-05 (EP5)
Developer: Levani
Publisher: Levani

"Total Seacat Island" is the last Umineko fan-game worth talking about. Just like "Witches & Woodlands" it's a comedic affair, albeit an unfinished one. Indeed, only five episodes of TSI were released before the author discontinued his work due to not being satisfied with it. For that matter, you cannot even download the game anymore from its blog, as the links died and the developer never bothered to replace them. Frankly, I don't think the game was so bad, that the dev needed to drop it and never get back to it. To be fair, he had intended to remake TSI, but the endeavour stalled and eventually died too.


Repercussion of the Golden Witch Review

Title: Repercussion of the Golden Witch
Release date: 2012-12-11
Developer: Ozaki
Publisher: Ozaki

"Repercussion of the Golden Witch" is another Umineko fan-game, which somehow flew by everyone's radars. Not only I haven't played it during my Umineko binge a few years back, but it wasn't even included on VNDB before I added it. It's time to see how it fares in comparison to other VNs of the same ilk.


Chichi Miko!! Plus 1 ~Sobo to Musume no Sakunyuu Harem~ Review

Title: Chichi Miko!! Plus 1 ~Sobo to Musume no Sakunyuu Harem~
Original title: ちちみこ!! プラス1 ~祖母と娘の搾乳ハーレム~
Alias: Chichi Miko!! Plus 1 ~Grandmother and Daughter Milking Harem~
Release date: 2012-04-27
English release date: 2014-06-26
Developer: Rapapuru
English publisher: Lv1 Translations

Big boob fans didn't have to wait long for a sequel to the bestselling visual novel "Chichi Miko!!". OK, that sentence was total bullshit and you know it, but it seriously didn't take the creators longer than a year to release a fandisc/sequel to the said game.


Chichi Miko!! Review

Title: Chichi Miko!!
Original title: ちちみこ!!
Release date: 2011-08-26
English release date: 2014-06-14
Developer: Rapapuru
English publisher: Lv1 Translations (as a fan-patch)

Holy cow! That's the only exclamation that readily comes to mind upon seeing this game. For all intents and purposes, the women in the visual novel "Chichi Miko!!" can be considered cows: they have boobs that defy gravity, they give milk and most of their dialogue consists of "oohs" and "aahs".


planetarian ~the reverie of a lttle planet~ Review

Title: planetarian ~Chiisana Hoshi no Yume~
Original title: planetarian ~ちいさなほしのゆめ~
Alias: planetarian -Dream of Little Star-
Release date: 2004-11-29
English release date: 2005-02-28 (as a fan-patch)
2013-01-07 (official iOS release)
2014-09-12 (official Steam release)
Developer: Key
English publisher: Insani/Haeleth (fan-patch)
Key (iOS release)
Sekai Project (Steam release)

Ah, "planetarian" - probably one of the more important Japanese VN translation projects. Somehow it still remains relevant to the community, despite its age and the fact that everyone and their mother-in-law have already played the game.


Discipline -The record of a Crusade- Review

Title: Discipline -The record of a Crusade-
Release date: 2002-08-30
English release date: 2007-12-18
Developer: Active Soft
English publisher: Kitty Media

I have acquired the recently released femdom visual novel "Starless", but before delving into its perverted goodness I decided that it would be a good idea to replay some of the earlier Sei Shoujo's titles available in English: namely "Discipline" and possibly "Bible Black".


Armored Warrior Iris Review

Title: Soukou Kijo Iris
Original title: 装甲騎女イリス
Alias: Armored Warrior Iris
Release date: 2006-03-24
English release date: 2014-07-18
Developer: Black Lilith
English publisher: MangaGamer

As you probably have read in my "Valkyrie Svia" review, that particular "Black Lilith" nukige was a disappointment for me. I was apprehensive going into "Armored Warrior Iris", but suffice to say my fears were unfounded - Iris is a much better nukige in every way.

fault -milestone one- Director's Cut Review

Title: fault -milestone one- Director's Cut
Release date: 2013-08-12 (original release) / 2014-08-17 (DC)
English release date: 2014-12-15 (DC)
Publisher: Sekai Project

fault (with a lowercase 'f') is an indie Japanese visual novel, published in the west by Sekai Project. Actually, it's kind of misleading to say that this VN is Japanese, as the main creator is an American living in Japan, and therein lies its greatest strength.


NEKOPARA Vol.1 La Soleil is now open! Review

Title: Neko Para Vol.1 Soleil Kaiten Shimashita!
Original title: ネコぱら Vol.1 ソレイユ開店しました!
Alias: NEKOPARA Vol.1 La Soleil is now open!
Release date: 2014-12-29 (Steam Edition)
2014-12-30 (Japanese Release)
2015-02-22 (Western Release)
Developer: Neko Works
English publisher: Sekai Project (Steam Edition)
Denpasoft (Physical Edition)

Nekopara is a short catgirl moege, which wouldn't have probably even blipped anyone's radar, if not for a few distinctive characteristics which separates it from the herd.


Cherry Tree High Comedy Club Review

Title: Cherry Tree High Comedy Club
Original title: まんけん!
Alias: Manken!
Release date: 2010-06-21
English release date: 2012-04-27 (2014-11-20 de-Westernized edition)
Developer: atelier773
English publisher: Nyu Media

"Cherry Tree High Comedy Club", or CTHCC for short, is a little skit of a game which can be finished in about 4 hours. It's not particularly interesting or particularly funny, but it might just lift your mood for a few hours.


Moving on... (or not)

So, you have probably have heard about the new Google policy. Specifically the ban on adult Blogger blogs, who will be set to private starting with March 23. Meaning that only I and those I share the keys with will be able to enter my blog. It doesn't necessarily mean that my blog will go dark on the 23rd.

As every blog will be checked manually by Google to determine if they are pornographic or not, it might take months or more for them to get to mine and determine if it offends their sensibilities or not. Still, it is a bad precedent and puts my writing in peril. Due to that I have set up a backup website to continue my blogging.

Go to address and see for yourselves. It's mostly set up and running already.

UPDATE: Google recanted and decided not to implement the said draconian measures anymore. That means I won't be abandoning this blog and both my websites will be active as mirrors of each other. :-)


HuniePop Review

Title: HuniePop

Never fear, for an ingenious company "HuniePot" has released a dating simulation game "HuniePop", which will show you the ropes. In just a few easy steps you will be able to become real nampa masters. I can attest to the success in using the said game to achieve my goals. In just a few days my sex life quality has improved by 100 %, after all, getting some virtual pussy is a 100 % improvement over not getting pussy at all...


Cross Channel Review

Title: Cross†Channel
Alias: クロスチャンネル
Release date: 2003-09-26
English release date: 2009-08-26 (AT)
2013-10-25 (GHS)
Developer: FlyingShine
English publisher: Amaterasu Translations (as a fan-patch)
George Henry Shaft (as a fan-patch)

There once was a man who said: "God
Must think it exceedingly odd
If he finds that this tree
Continues to be
When there's no one about in the Quad."
