Sleepover- BL Game Review

Sleepover is an 18+ PC BL visual novel from Black Monkey Pro an international BL artist circle. The game tells the story of Haruyuki Kano, a young man who has secretly been in love with his best friend, Sato Hideaki (Aki) since they were children. Not wanting to ruin their friendship, Kano has done his best to keep his feelings to himself. But when a freak rain storm forces Aki to spend the night at his house, Kano finds himself with a once in a lifetime opportunity. Will Kano finally tell Aki how he feels or will he be content being “just friends”? Whatever you choose, Aki and Kano’s relationship will never be the same again!

You asked for more BL, so here it is… The things I do for my fellow BL/yaoi fans out there… I kid, I actually bought this game a few months ago on a whim, but I never got around to playing it until now. There are two versions of the game: the Uncensored version which is $29.99 and the Censored version which is $14.99. So, if you are interested in the game, I strongly urge you to purchase it from Black Monkey directly, HERE.

*Disclaimer: I don’t own the images used in this review, all CGs and screenshots belong to Black Monkey. Since this game is NSFW there will be some NSFW images after this point. I tried my best to hide some of the naughty bits, but… *shrugs* you’ve been warned!

Let’s Show Our Support for the… A Foretold Affair Kickstarter

So as usual, I’m a day late and a dollar short with yet another Kickstarter campaign! This time around I’m covering the upcoming steampunk fantasy visual novel developed by GB Patch, A Foretold Affair! I literally came across this Kickstarter campaign a day or two ago and I am ashamed to admit that there are only a handful of days left (the campaign ends Sept 16th).

The Story

Of all of the Kickstarter campaigns I’ve covered so far this year, this quite possibly one of the most unique. I really hope that this project reaches it’s funding goal, because this is a very intriguing story idea.

A Foretold Affair takes place in a world in which society is divided between that of the Abnormals (those with special abilities) and the Normals (those without).  The games protagonist, Buffalo Seer, is Abnormal who’s special ability allows them to see the future. However, even among Abnormals this power is uncommon and those that posses it are advised against using it. Undeterred, Seer decides to peer into their own future and what they find changes their life forever.

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Aug. 21st to Aug. 27th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!As some of you may know I was experiencing some technical difficulties with WordPress. Earlier this week I found myself unable to comment on other bloggers’s posts… So imagine my surprise when I discovered that all of my comments were being sent to you guy’s spam folders! I have since had the problem fixed, but I suggest you all check your spam folders regularly in case others are experiencing the same problem.

hit it

Okay now that I’m done with that, I actually have some good news! We finally heard back from the journal we sent our manuscript to… *drumroll* They want us to fix some things and resubmit… I know it sounds bad, but this is actually really good news and the comments they had were mostly positive. But, since I’m the first author on the paper, I’m responsible for bringing the paper up to snuff. So, what does that mean for you guys and the blog? Well, the paper takes priority, so if I go ghost you know why…

the shadows

[Review] English Visual Novel-The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car

The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car is a newly released Pay-What-You-Want visual novel from Lox Rain (Lorelei, Laiska, and Auro-Cyanide). The game which was created over the span of four days, features two character routes and six endings.

The road is long.

Two strangers sit side by side as night falls over. The car speeds down the open highway.

Without a soul around them, everything seems to slip away. On a journey to no one knows where, all they have is words and time. And that time is dwindling fast.

The shadows are chasing.

Official Description

*Disclaimer: This is a SPOILER FREE review! Also all of the images used in this review belong Lox Rain!

Fangirl Moment: Waiting

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m going to take a break from the usual Fangirl Moment topics and bring you another book post! For today’s post I’ll be covering one of my favorite books, Waiting by Ha Jin!

waiting.jpg

I originally stumbled upon this book years ago on my high school AP reading list. Back then the prospect of a summer reading list was not very appealing, especially for an AP Literature class.

So, I reluctantly braved the thick Atlanta heat for a trip to my local library, with the dreaded AP reading list in hand. After briefly scanning the list again, I mentally noted the most promising titles and began searching the packed shelves. I emerged with four books: One Hundred Years of Solitude,  The Kite Runner, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Waiting.  I read all of them, except One Hundred Years of Solitude (I fell asleep on that one multiple times), but the book that left the biggest impression on me was Waiting.

If I were a Gym Leader: My Pokemon Gym-Pokemon Tag

2016 marks the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon and since February the Pokemon Company has been pulling out all of the stops to set the world aflame with Pokemon fever. From the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Moon to the release of the Pokemon Go mobile app, this has been a good year for Pokemon fans (old and new)!

So if you guys will remember back to the 7/3-7/9 Last Week Today post’s Blogger Spotlight, I talked about Magnitude Reviews and their post Pokemon Sun and Moon: My Pokemon Gym. In that post they describe their ideal Pokemon Gym in great detail, from the design of the gym to the types of Pokemon they’d use. As a long time Pokemon fan I thought it was a very fun post… but what I didn’t know was that this was a tag post. So imagine my surprise, when I received a Twitter notification letting me know that I’d been tapped to make a post of my own. So, thank you Matt-in-the-Hat for tagging me!!😄 You can read Matt’s post, My Pokemon Gym- Pokemon Tag, by clicking the link. 

The concept for this post came from youtuber Bird Keeper Toby, who made a video detailing what their Pokemon gym would be like if they were a Pokemon Gym Leader! So check out the video below:

Okay so now that that’s out of the way, here’s what I’d want my own Pokemon Gym to be like if I were a Pokemon Gym Leader!!

Sentimental Trickster- Demo Review

A few weeks ago, Justyna Pustelnik contacted me via Twitter about maybe taking a look at the demo for her upcoming BL visual novel, Sentimental Trickster. However, when I received the request I was wrapping up the 30 Day Anime Challenge (and in need of a break), so I wasn’t able to play the demo right away. But, I was able to talk with Justyna through Twitter and after reviewing the Kickstarter campaign, I was able to bang out a Kickstarter Support post for the game.

I originally planned on getting back to the demo after my Blogging Vacation, but one thing led to another and the demo ended up further down on my To Do List than I would have hoped… forgive me! So, I know this is late, but better late than never… right? So, with the Kickstarter winding down, I figured the time was ripe for a demo review in order to generate more buzz for the game as it nears its final days!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Aug. 14th to Aug. 20th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! So I’m back on my job application grind and to be honest, I find the whole process dull! I have filled in the same sections over and over and over again, and I am so over it…

over it

Thank goodness for the weekend! I met up with one of my friends from school and we went to Momofuku… and my gosh was the food tasty! Their Brisket Buns were to die for and don’t get me started on their Beef Noodle Soup… After chowing down, I actually went to see Sausage Party… for FREE! Apparently I go to the movies so much that I earned enough points for a free movie ticket! The movie was most definitely not for children and I’ll just leave it at that!

Fangirl Moment: Haikyu!!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m going back to my otaku roots a bit, by covering an anime series that was suggested to me by the outstanding Katrina Sade over at Grimmgirl.com! If you have been following my twitter, you know without a doubt that I have been seriously obsessing over the sports anime series Haikyu!!

I’m not really a fan of sports anime, in fact I usually go out of my way to avoid them when I can… So when Kat suggested that I watch Haikyu, let’s just say that I wasn’t expecting much. In fact, the first and last sports anime that I every cared enough about to keep up with was Prince of Tennis and that was years ago. But, along came Haikyu and it just blew everything else out of the water!
