Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist is a short game with an almost annoyingly long title that was released as a complimentary title in an effort for Crows Crows Crows to give themselves free advertisement (but at a cost to themselves) and generate hype for their future endeavours, which is a pretty damn good idea because it’ll keep people pretty interested. I know it’s got me. The whole thing runs approximately fifteen minutes — though it can be extended by thorough exploration of the rooms as […] Continue Reading…

What Hiyoko thinks will happen if Sakuya acts rudely.

As it was recently Valentine’s Day, I figured that I would play one of the most ridiculous otome games. It’s entirely about a young Homo sapien’s attempt to romance birds. Or die by the hands (wings?) of birds. Or engage in some paranormal pudding event with birds. Or… well, it’s a completely absurd game where you romance birds, parodying the general stereotypes and tropes of otome games. It’s called Hatoful Boyfriend, and it will break your brain in some way.

According to my friends, I have a “guilty pleasure.” I’m not sure why they classify it as such, but I suppose they think I shouldn’t advertise the fact that I enjoy playing otome games.

I think it also baffles them because I don’t really follow anime, and I haven’t really been very […] Continue Reading…

I’ve been given a number of great recommendations. Unfortunately, that’s not totally present here, so I wanted to go from my absolute least favourite thing that I’ve read recently to something I definitely loved to pieces just so I could end on a positive note.

A story about a boy who has been annoying and disgustingly obsessed with a girl for years who goes to her party, hoping he can now start dating her because she finally broke up with her boyfriend. Sounds incredibly cliché, doesn’t it? Probably […] Continue Reading…

I haven’t really been that busy reading novels, but I have had quite a backlog of those I wanted to write about. I’ve had so many wonderful recommendations given to me, especially as I’ve been seeking books that are a bit more diverse. My friends have been overloading me with so many books, which is just going to add to my list; I’m fine with that, though. As long as they don’t mind me leaving random books in their flats, which is my normal way of passing them on. But here are a few more of the books that I’ve read recently.

Fever 1793 […] Continue Reading…
