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 ūüėČ )! If you want a general overview of Irresistible Mistakes, click HERE, it‚Äôs covers the basic premise of the game and will include links to the other character reviews I will write for the game.

Let’s Show Our Support for “A Very Important Date” (Relaunched)!

Back in November Naive Sprites launched their first Kickstarter campaign for their Alice in Wonderland inspired English otome game,¬†A Very Important Date.¬†However, they were not able to meet their original funding goal by the end of the campaign… Well, I am excited to write that they have not given up on the project and are back with a second revamped campaign!! This time around the team is looking to raise funding for the main game¬†and¬†a spin-off game featuring a male protagonist! Plus there is a ton of new content and features that expand on the original concept.

I have been following this game’s development for a long time now and I absolutely adored the demo!! I really want to see this project become a reality! So when Naive Sprites announced that they were giving Kickstarter another go, I knew I had to show my support!

Let’s Show Our Support for Two Scoops!!

Hey hey guys I’m back with yet another Kickstarter¬†campaign! This time around, I’m spotlighting the¬†upcoming dating sim,¬†Two Scoops.¬†This game is a joint collaboration between Thumb Cramps and Pillowfight and follows an unnamed protagonist as she adjusts to her new job at a local ice cream shop and maybe find love along the way…

I am always excited to see games that break the mold with their characters and Two Scoops does that and more. With a diverse cast of characters and love interests from a wide range of backgrounds and genders, this promises to be fresh new title that is bound to appeal to a wide range of players.

[First Thoughts] Re:Birthday Song ~Koi o Utau Shinigami~

Re:Birthday Song ~Koi o Utau Shinigami ( Re:BIRTHDAY SONGÔĹěśĀč„āíŚĒĄ„ĀÜś≠ĽÁ•ěÔĹě) is a 2015 Japanese supernatural fantasy otome game, developed by Honeybee (the team behind the popular,¬†Starry Sky¬†series). While the game does not have an official English language release, earlier this year,¬†estearisa¬†released a full English patch of the game. Of course as it is with most patches, you’ll have to purchase a Japanese copy of the PC game (not the Vita port) in order to play it.¬†I will say this now, it’s easier to find copies of the Vita version of the game,¬†however,¬†they won’t work with the patch. (Ebay has a few copies floating around though)

The game follows Kokoro a young¬†girl who suddenly becomes the newest resident of the Netherworld, a place where souls with deep regrets go when they die, as she trains to become a full fledged shinigami.¬†But, because our heroine isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, she has to take supplementary lessons with a group of shinigami rejects…

I am notorious for never finishing games, so I picked up¬†Re: Birthday¬†on a whim, since my playthroughs of¬†Period Cube¬†have pretty much come to a standstill. So, I figured I’d play one route and go back to¬†PC, what I didn’t expect was to be hit over the head with wave after wave of tear inducing emotions… OH MY GOD THE FEELS IN THIS GAME!! I’d played one of Honeybee’s other titles,¬†Starry Sky in Spring¬†ages ago and it’s like comparing apples and oranges!

Disclaimer: Screenshots used in this post were taken from the game and belong to Honeybee and the other respective developers of the game. Also, this game deals with some mature topics such as, but not limited to: death, suicide, and grief. Just a bit of a warning.

[First Thoughts] Period Cube ~Shackles of Amadaeus~

Period Cube ~Shackles of Amadaeus~ is a fantasy/RPG Japanese otome game developed by Otomate, based on the¬†Drama CD series of the same name. The game was released in Japan in 2016 for the PS Vita, prior to it‚Äôs English language release by Aksys Games on April 28th. I’d heard some mixed reviews about this game from folks who played the Japanese version, but I like to give games the benefit of the doubt, especially when it comes to major localizations and releases (Norn9¬†does not count)…¬†Period Cube¬†is a commercial release, full retail: $39.99 USD on Amazon (affiliate link), which isn’t all that bad for what the game has to offer, especially when importing¬†the Japanese version is double, if not triple that amount.

I seriously thought I’d be done with¬†Period Cube¬†by now, I honestly hoped that I would be, but life has been getting in the way of my gaming. I’m still working my way through the game ( a full review is still a ways off), but I’ve already cleared four routes and I have more than a few thoughts about the game… namely, WTF is with this MC?!! Plus, it’s good to get my ranting out of the way now…¬†There may be some spoilers, but since I’m still playing through the game, there shouldn’t be any major plot reveals…

Full Service- Demo Review

Double entendres and buff naked hunks abound in Herculion’s upcoming 18+ BL game,¬†Full Service. The game follows Tomoki Nakamoto an overworked young office worker with a rather cynical outlook on life. When a stranger hands him a business card¬†to¬†the Full Service Spa, he encounters a colorful cast of characters that are more than happy to help Tomoki relieve a little “stress”.¬†The game is currently on Kickstarter, so feel free to stop by and show your support, there are still a few days left in the campaign. ¬†Full Service¬†will be a fully voiced commercial release, and will be available for PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) and Android.

You know, I knew there was something familiar about this game, and after re-reading the Kickstarter page again, I discovered something that genuinely surprised me.¬†Herculion isn’t a new group, Herculion¬†is Black Monkey Pro reborn! I thought I was done with BMP after I reviewed the¬†Bacchikoi Expansion Pack, but nope…they are the gift that just keeps on giving!
