First impressions – The Caligula Effect: Overdose

caligula

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since my last game review. I bought this game last month and, since it’s quite long, I decided to do a ‘first impressions review’ rather than a full one. I wanted to get this out of the way since there are other games I want to play and I didn’t want to get to them before writing about this one. Then, I’ll be able to resume Ashen Hawk.

What’s the story about? Basically, you’re someone who gets trapped in a virtual world called Mobius, created by Miku Hatsune two virtuadolls (Mu and Aria), together with a bunch of other people. In Mobius, people can live freely as the “best version of themselves” in a high school setting (meaning, no matter their age in the real world, they’ll be high schoolers in Mobius) while they escape their painful lives. The protagonist, however, wants to return to the real world, so she joins the “Go-Home Club”. However, there’s also another group, called the Ostinato Musicians, who support Mu and see the protagonist and the Go-Home Club as traitors.

For those who don’t know, The Caligula Effect was actually released for the PS Vita in 2017 (2016 in Japan) but it had a remake made (The Caligula Effect: Overdose) for the Switch and PS4 (which was released last month). Apart from the different platform, the main add-ons are a female protagonist and a “bad route” where you can choose to side with the villains (aka the Ostinato Musicians).

NOTE: This review contains spoilers for the first two dungeons so read at your own risk. Also, this review is for the Switch version since I don’t have a PS4. And… as always, be prepared for a lot of cursing ranting.

Action-Adventure game review: The Liar Princess and The Blind Prince

liarblind

Hello everyone! Here I am with a brand new review! This time is from a recent adventure game that came out for the Switch and PS4. The Liar Princess & The Blind Prince is, essentially, a fairytale love story with reminiscences of The Little Mermaid and The Beauty & The Beast.

Once upon a time, in a forest next to a kingdom from a faraway land, there was a wolf who had a beautiful voice and sang towards the moon, high atop a cliff, every night. Her voice was so beautiful that it attracted a young prince, who ventured out of the kingdom and into the dangerous forest, just to hear her song. The wolf noticed the prince and was flattered by his applause, so she too looked forward to sing every night, in hopes that he would clap for her singing again. However, the prince’s curiosity led him to try to figure out the wolf’s identity so, one night, after she finished her song, he climbed atop the cliff. Scared to make the prince horrified by her look, the wolf attempted to cover his eyes, but ended up hurting them instead, leaving him blind. Due to his blindness, the prince brought shame to the royal family and was locked away in the castle’s tower. The wolf was worried about him and angry about how he was being treated, so she went to the witch of the forest to request her help. In exchange for her singing voice, the witch transformed her into a princess, so that she would be able to take the prince’s hand; but still gave her the ability to transform back into a wolf, so that she could protect the prince in the journey towards her magical house.

And so, after managing to escape from the castle’s tower, the liar princess and the blind prince begin their journey into the forest to reach the witch’s house…

Hello everyone! RPG reviews are another thing I haven’t done for a while so I figured I’d make a post about this game!! I binge-played it over the course of November 2018, but I still have the game experience engraved in my heart.

Otome game review: Kitty Love ~My Way To Look For Love~

nyanlovecapture2

Hello everyone! I’m back with a brand new review! This one is a bit special since it was a request from DIGIMERCE themselves in exchange for playing their game, and it made me so happy!! I know sometimes game developers/companies give out codes for people to play their games in exchange for feedback but, gosh, I never thought there’d be a day when I was asked to do this and it made me feel really flattered, especially when being a blogger is a hobby, so a big thank you to DIGIMERCE who was very kind to give me a code!

NOTE: Remember there are spoilers in this review so, if you want to avoid them, just head to conclusive thoughts!

Let’s begin!
