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

I Slept With an Executive from Work?!: Irresistible Mistakes- Toshiaki Kijima Main Story

After a night of heavy drinking, the MC discovers that she slept with the Accounts Planning Executive, Toshiaki Kijima. Unable to reconcile the Demon Executive with the sweet, loving man she shared a night of passion with, the MC initially dismisses the notion that Toshiaki was the one she’d slept with. But, when he sends her a text asking to meet up at the same bar, she realizes the idea might not be as far-fetched as she originally thought! Is there really more to this cool businessman than meets the eye? Or was that night just a beautiful delusion?

This was the route I was most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. This route was very different from Tachibana’s but in a good way. I can’t see how any of the other routes in the game are going to top this one, it was just so… PERFECT! If you want a general overview of Irresistible Mistakes, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and will include links to the other character reviews I will write for the game.

I Slept With My Boss?!: Irresistible Mistakes- Shunichiro Tachibana Main Story

After a night of heavy drinking, the MC discovers that she slept with her boss, Creative Director, Shunichiro Tachibana. Embarrassed and unable to remember the sexual encounter, she tries to put the whole affair behind her, but when she’s assigned to work with him on a high profile ad campaign, she finds that she can’t help but remember their night of drunken passion. Things start to look up for our heroine when Tachibana seemingly reciprocates her feelings, but is it love or is he just looking for a fling?

I was genuinely surprised by this route and by Tachibana, Voltage definitely made the one night stand premise seem way more sordid in the promotional material, than it was in the actual route. So, I was kind of expecting something along the lines of one of those cheesy soap operas my Nana likes to watch every day, but this wasn’t anything like that. If you want a general overview of Irresistible Mistakes, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and will include links to the other character reviews I will write for the game.

[First Thoughts] Dangerous Seduction

There I was minding my own business, browsing Twitter, when I saw that Voltage had finally decided to release a brand new app, Dangerous Relationship! So I immediately dropped everything and downloaded the game from the App store!!

So first things first, the art is a bit different from their other games and I have to admit that when I first saw it I wasn’t really a fan of it, but it grew on me… Okay, I’m lying, I’m still on the fence about the art style, but the premise more than makes up for that!

[Update] Cheritz to Lift Bans on Improperly Banned Accounts

Edit (9/28): Cheritz has made an official announcement about the bans on their Tumblr page, HERE!

Screenshot_20160929-072100.png

First, I want to say thank you to Aurora6290 for sending me this tip! As many of you knowMystic Messenger players have been receiving Permanent Bans for reasons not associated with the Time Modification Cheat. Current ban triggers are as follows:

  • Using  Hourglasses to replay multiple missed chats, as far as I’ve heard using Hourglasses to replay one missed chat at a time has not resulted in a banned account.
  • Pausing or remaining idle for too long during chat rooms, though the exact amount of time idle that triggers the ban has yet to be disclosed.
  • Quitting or closing the app in the middle of a chat room  also results in a ban notice.

The recent influx of non-time manipulation related bans has caused a bit of a stir in the community and applaud all of you that took the time to reach out to Cheritz about the issue. Well, Cheritz was listening and they have reached out to all affected players.

Cheritz will be reviewing all of the improperly banned account reports and will be taking action to lift the bans for those accounts. In addition to lifting the ban on all the wrongfully banned accounts, Cheritz will also be compensating afflicted players. Compensation will be calculated based on the number of days the specific account was inactive.

Cheritz has already released the update to lift the ban on affected accounts! Here’s a link to the account that first posted the news…. HERE!

So what do you think about the recent backlash? If you have any more information to share on the recent Mystic Messenger bans please feel free to drop a line on this post! As always THANK YOU FOR READING!! If you like what you see, like this post or follow Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!

How to Survive Mystic Messenger Hell in 8 Easy Steps

So like many of you I recently jumped on the Mystic Messenger bandwagon and while the game is fun, there are a few things I wish I had known beforehand. Now, I’m not going to post a full walkthrough or how to guide, because it’s been done before by better bloggers than myself. So, nothing fancy, just a rundown of some things I learned while going through my first playthrough of the game.

If you want the game, you can download it from the App Store or from Google Play for free, but there are options for in-app purchases!

Forbidden Romance: Dangerous Relationship-Taiga Saeba

I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I must be a glutton for punishment. If you don’t remember my first foray with D3Publisher’s Dangerous Relationship, click the link….HERE, and relive my rage induced review of Kei Toyonaga’s route. *clears throat* I was growing a bit bored with my Voltage backlog, so I decided to switch gears a bit and check out some of the other mobile otoge on my iPad… Unfortunately, my curiosity got the better of me and I found myself clicking the Dangerous Relationship app once again.

FR Dangerous Relationship

After the tragedy that was Kei’s route, I willingly dove head first back into the fast paced world of celebrity drama with another playthrough of Forbidden Romance: Dangerous Relationship… From the minute I started up the app I was fully prepared to rage quit, as I hesitantly clicked Taiga Saeba’s main story… I mean come on he can’t possibly be as bad as Kei…. Right? *laughs nervously* Right?!

Mini Review: My Wedding and the 7 Rings

So, because Voltage is putting out new games and stories faster than I can play them all, my backlog is extremely long right now. Every time I tackle a game, Voltage puts out another one, so finding the time to play them all has been hard to do. However, I did manage to find the time to play through a few games, this was one of those games.

IMG_1661

A little over a year ago, Voltage released the English language version of  My Wedding and the 7 Rings a spin-off of the extremely popular, My Forged Wedding (MFW). The new game takes place in the same universe as the MFW series, and even features two of the love interests from the previous game, with a slightly modified back story.  Continue reading “Mini Review: My Wedding and the 7 Rings”
