I liked this game a lot. The way the story petered out at the end as a sequel hook was disappointing, and as always I wish there was more free time to explore the world, but overall it’s a super solid entry into the series, and it’s more plot-heavy than anything in the Arland trilogy. It tries to be a more traditional jRPG, I think, with decent success, and if you liked the other games you’ll like this, though I don’t think it will convert anyone. (more…)

The cringily cliche title of this modern, Western take on the magical girl genre doesn’t do it justice — this is an excellent comic. I’m pushing this post out with kind of Lite analysis because the creator is running a kickstarter right now to get physical copies printed, and you all should def support her!

This was a short light novel that I would definitely recommend. It doesn’t do anything groundbreaking, but the characters are likable and it tells its story well.
Because I use my time wisely, I compiled the original file — which was hundreds of png images — into pdfs. The full file is here, and you can get it in four parts for your Kindle or whatever here. (more…)

This may have been the strongest game in the Arland trilogy, at least from a gameplay perspective. I also found Meruru to be really likeable, loved the idea of a princess working to better her kingdom, and thought her outfit with its adorable, practical little bloomers was super cute.

As the new year comes, I’d like to talk about my absolute favorite anime of all time, which I watched in its entirety twenty times before I lost count.
It is no one else’s favorite anime, and I understand that, but you’re all wrong. (more…)

Act did one of these so I will too! Here are a few good games I’ve played recently ages ago, plus one novel to show that I’m cultured.

“A Dark Room” is a remarkably simple browser-based game that metamorphosizes from a well-written text-based atmospheric exercise into a genre-bending multi-faceted experience that I heartily recommend. There’s not much to say about it because I don’t want to spoil the experience for anyone, and if you’re anything like me, seeing spoiler tags only makes you want to keep reading. Go play it!

I loved this game!
Someone said it was what inspired Recettear, and I can totally see that. The characters are charming, the crafting is fun and the seemingly endless amount of items to collect and combine made my little internal packrat playing in a sandbox so happy. It’s definitely a niche game, but if it’s your niche by god you should check it out.

Recommendations, RPGs, Telepath Series, Video Games recommendations, Single post review, Telepath RPG, Telepath Tactics, videogame
Telepath Tactics is the latest entry in the Telepath RPG series, and is markedly different than its predecessors. It ditches the vector graphics and awkward birds-eye camera angle for more a more traditional 3/4th view and pixellated style, and streamlines the experience into a linear series of battles like Fire Emblem rather than a free-exploration RPG. I believe that the latter change makes it a better game, but at the same time drastically hinders its storytelling ability. (more…)
