Why writing constructive reviews is a good thing

tips-for-collecting-reviews-for-your-web-shop

Recently, I’ve talked with a friend of mine who’s a game developer about different topics and one of the things we talked about was how some people have a tendency to rate games badly because they aren’t free (or because they aren’t in their language).

This post’s main focus will be on why leaving constructive reviews is good for a video game or any product/service in general.

Mystery game review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations – Distant Memories

chase

After years of not hearing anything about Taisuke Kanasaki (director of Another Code and Hotel Dusk) I was very excited to come upon his new game being sold at the Nintendo eshop. Sadly, it’s not what I expected. At all. And this review will tell you why it was so disappointing.

Cold Case is a unit in the police department in charge of, if you’ll forgive the repetition, cases that have gone cold. This means, old cases that were closed yet, for some reason, have the need to be reopened. Our two main characters, the detectives if you will, are Shounosuke Nanase and his assistant Koto Amekura. They suddenly receive a suspicious phone call saying that the explosion that took place five years ago in a hospital, were only one person died, was not an accident but murder. What will the detectives do?

NOTE: This review contains mild spoilers so read at your own risk. If you want to avoid them, though, just jump to “conclusive thoughts”. Still, I don’t really recommend this game so, if you don’t mind, be my guest to read why I think so…but be warned that it contains a bit of “strong language” if you will 😆 and that this is only my personal opinion.

Mystery game review: SHINRAI – Broken Beyond Despair

mwtypz

I was actually thinking about my first mystery game review being of Ace Attorney but I finally decided to choose Shinrai, a game that was recently released. I won a copy of it together with the OST and was very happy about it, I very rarely win stuff so it was awesome and am very grateful; thank you GosatsuVNs! Anywho, let’s get on with it, shall we?

Shinrai takes place in a secluded mountain resort, where a group of ten classmates reunite to celebrate a Halloween party. The protagonist is Raiko, a quiet and reserved girl who was somehow forced to go to the party because of her best friend, Nobara, who’s a real scaredy cat. When they arrive at the resort, they chat a little with their classmates and start enjoying (sort of  😆 ) the party. However, at a certain point in time, one of the party’s attendants is found dead. Will Raiko solve the mystery?

Note: This review contains HUGE spoilers (culprit is revealed!) so read at your own risk. If you want to avoid them, though, just jump to “conclusive thoughts”.

Recommended Mobile Otome Routes

Joey-Tribiani-How-You-Doin

Hello, hello! It’s been a while since I last posted, huh? I’ve been quite busy with my finals but, luckily, I’m done with them so I’m more free now!! Well, truth is I also didn’t know what I should post next; this blog’s main focus is about otome AND mysteries but I haven’t posted any mystery-related content yet. I definitely will, though, it’s a promise!!

Ok, putting that aside, I made a post before about the worst mobile otome routes I’ve ever played, right? So, this time, I wanted to make a post about the ones I actually enjoyed!! I won’t really make a top 10 or anything; this’ll be more of a recommendation post but I may do a top 10 or top 5 or top something someday 😛 Ahem! By the way, I won’t talk about mobile games that are actually brought from PSP (like Demon’s Bond or Eternal Vows) since they’re not really mobile games. Also won’t be talking about Mystic Messenger, despite it actually BEING a mobile game because that one is a whole new category in itself. It doesn’t have the quality you can expect from a mobile otome game, it’s much much better so I don’t think it’s fair to put it on this list; I’ll just make a full review on Mystic Messenger after I finish it. I’ll also structure this post by game and tell you which routes I recommend the most from them (I hope this makes sense 😆 ). As for East Tower, it’s also a mobile game but I’ll cover it on a full review too since I want to ramble about a lot of good things the game has to offer yet sometimes is ignored for the not so great art. In the case of Voltage games, I might add things about their sequels and such but this will be mostly about the main routes.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these recommendations ♡ And tell me what you think, I’d love to read your comments! Also, remember these recommendations are my personal opinion so that doesn’t mean everyone has to agree with me 😛 . This post has mild spoilers so it should be alright to read 🙂 But WARNING, it’s a bit long 😆 Let’s start!

RPG review: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

odin-sphere-leifdrasir

Odin Sphere is a frame story that begins with a little girl called Alice, who reads a series of books in the attic from her house (with the company of her cat Socrates). Each book has a different character as the protagonist and, thus, tells a different story but set in the same world. What world, you may ask? Well, an RPG wouldn’t be and RPG if it didn’t take place in a fantasy world, right? And what’s better than that fantasy world (called Erion) containing a lot of Norse mythology! Be prepared to immerse yourself in the world of Alice’s books!

Note: This review contains mild spoilers but if you still want to avoid them just jump to “conclusive thoughts”.

Worst Mobile Otome Routes I’ve Ever Played

myeyes

Everyone knows just how hard GOOD mobile otome games are to find. What about BAD ones, though? After debating about it for a few minutes, I decided to make this post. Mobile otome games usually have a separated route system so, instead of games, I’ll talk about the worst ROUTES I’ve ever played. Also, I didn’t make a top 10 cause’ I couldn’t really decide the order but wanted to share my views nonetheless. Anyway, I hope you have a good laugh with these ♡ Also, remember these are for fun and not intended to offend anyone, everything written here’s just my personal opinion and that doesn’t mean you have to agree with me :P.
