Otome games are ridiculously easy to get into, and it’s usually because they’re so simple to play; the story’s path is relatively straight-forward and hard to deviate from, and it’s rare that options actually have any impact on what’s going to happen. Long Live the Queen isn’t like that, though. Its entire premise is that you must keep Elodie, a young soon-to-be-queen, alive despite the growing threats as she makes decisions for her kingdom.

Elodie’s list of deaths.

That aspect is what makes this game interesting: You have to keep Elodie alive for the entire 40 weeks […] Continue Reading…

Because I’ve been struggling to find gainful employment, I’ve found myself hiding under a pile of books. One of them is a book that I fell absolutely and entirely in love with, and it might be difficult to find something to surpass my adoration for it.

Moving to another country to live with my partner forced me to read a lot more than I had anticipated to in a short time; I actually had planned on streaming games and getting through more of my list, but I ended up trying to read as much as possible because I wanted to pack fewer books into my bags. Don’t get me wrong; I wish I could’ve brought more with me, but I figured I could reorder the ones I really liked and get brand new copies of them. Unfortunately, there weren’t many of those in this set.

Recently, people close to me have been handing me books to read. I’m pretty sure that most of them are ones they want to get rid of so they can conserve space rather than genuinely recommending them.
