    I'm always amused when I put something on my wishlist because it looks cool and then forget about it, then months or years later get gifted it and when I check it out, I'm like, "Oh man, this looks awesome!"

    So a couple of quick visual novels out of the way today:

    Aozora Meikyuu: Step into the shoes of a heartbroken shut-in whose rare foray into the outside world is interrupted by a naked girl falling out of the sky and landing on him. Now, I've been outside a LOT in my life, and I've even spent quite a few months wandering around Japan, but having naked girls falling on you is, I feel, drastically over-represented in anime and visual novels as I have never had anyone fall on me, clothed or not.

    Anyway, you're much less interested in her and more interested in playing computer games, but you do eventually wind up having lots of sexy times (none of them graphic, nor graphically described.) Alternately, you get stabbed, or have a sign fall on you, or, well, there are a lot of ways to die in what looks like a lighthearted romp of a story. It will take you about an hour to see every possibility and probably about as long for your eyes to return to their normal position from all of the rolling you probably put them through during the process.

    Sakura Beach 2: In the first Sakura Beach, you play a slightly-emotionally-broken chap whose childhood friends get tired of how utterly dense he is and drag him to the beach so you can finally decide which of them he's going to date. There are three possible endings, but as so often happens the sequel just assumes that you took the harem ending because what red-blooded lad wouldn't?

    Anyway, it was actually a little serious and touching at times even if it could have used another proofreading pass or two, so when a sequel came out I naturally had to... well, wait on it until I could pick it up for pennies in a bundle.

    So, in Sakura Beach 2, you're dating both of your childhood friends but the relationship hasn't even gotten to the first kiss stage, so they drag you back to the beach where Yet Another Girl Comes Along To Make Things Complicated.

    There are four endings and a bunch of branching paths that don't seem to make much difference but offer some funny moments. Also lots and lots of life and hometown.

    Both are Win/Mac/Linux. Aozora Meikyuu was a little dodgy on the Mac (if you try to go into full screen, it will initially not work until you minimize and then restore it), so I played Sakura Beach 2 on my Ubuntu box TO DEMONSTRATE MY COMMITMENT TO FREEEEEEEDOM and also because OS X wanted to run updates and it was taking forever.

    Is it anything like Blighttown? Because Blighttown is the worst.

    Don't worry, it would be a huuuuuuuge dick move if From Software put another Blighttown in Dark Souls 2. Fans would throw them in the gutter if they did something so poisonous to the Dark Souls community.

    Pretty sure folks also learned a bit about how to watch their step from the first one and there is no shitty poking you from afar nonstop while having to watch your step.

    I like Stolen Memory a lot. It's just that Shadowbroker is (I think) plot critical, and Overlord is some of the best storytelling in ME across all three games. I own every bit of DLC released for ME2. Making an ordered list of must-haves was stupidly difficult.

    That's fair. I just know I usually saw people talking shit about it, although I can't remember if it was here or somewhere else. It is kind of interesting though how much they assume you played the ME2 DLC for plot elements in the third one.

    Some people get bombed with seven titles, and here I am moving my backlog in the right direction. That makes, what seven games off mine?

    In the future, an alien invasion overwhelms the planet Earth, pushing humanity to the brink of extinction. The Centurion invasion has humanity pretty much up against the wall, until from out of nowhere, comes this mystical spaceship that manages to save what is left of humanity and then spirit them away, complete with seven Angels wielding Ki power. The ship, named Alpha, brings humanity to a new planet, simply allowing them to make a new life... but as fate would have it, we manage to fuck it up again. On side wants to live with nature, the other side wants to power up and research tech until humanity is strong enough to kick the Centurions off Earth and take it back. The cusp of their research is the Kimorian, a human implanted with a ki crystal at birth, making them stronger and granting access to special powers... but as things heat up between both sides, a young kimorian by the name of Rick finds himself growing disillusioned with the while thing... and so begins Alpha Kimori: Chapter 1.

    The game was actually developed in Malaysia, and is built in the style of those old 80s adventure cartoons that used to be everywhere, though Alpha Kimori is your run-of-the-mill turn-based RPG, and I'm actually fine with that. Gameply is much the same- you run around, beating the snot out of anything that attacks you like a pack of ki-powered murderhobos until you level up and get stronger to finish each episode of the game. But treating this like any old RPG kind of shortchanges it, I would think.

    The characters are fun- you get your troubled student soldier Rick, his neighbor and girlfriend Vanessa... half the fun is watching the drama between the characters play out. And yes, I am holding out on a few of them by not naming them, but I don't want to spoil things if you want to play the game.

    The controls are really good- it supports both controller and KBAM input, but I had a lot more fun with a controller. The controls are responsive enough to move you around well enough and to select items and abilities. I didn't have any problems with selecting things to choose. The graphics are actually okay- but expect sixteen-bit style graphics both in and out of battle. You won't find anything that really pushes the engine, though. The music's about the same- though I really love the title track, the same one that plays for episode boss encounters- that I'd drop a buck for the soundtrack just for it.

    But... the game's got some problems, too. First off, every character seems to feel the exact same- apart from the fact that each character gets one damage move, one healing move (either self or selectable) and then a smattering of other abilities- maybe a ki-replenisher, or a revive, or another damaging move. About the only thing this game really doesn't have is a way to heal everyone at once- but ki healing also massively outclasses any kind of healing item- if you have to dip into your inventory, for anything other than a revive, you might be doing it wrong. Some of the abilities also need to be rebalanced- when your ki reaches about 1900 and the strongest ability you have only runs maybe 25 points to cast, it's pretty much just a nuke-till-dead approach when it comes to bosses. As long as you keep your equipment up to date and not run from fights, you might just have to do one grind near then end to get your health high enough for the episode boss.

    Episode bosses are really the only big threats of the game- the third one is especially nasty and mean and might take you a few tries.

    The game's shortness might be a problem, too- it's only three episodes long, and while I think there are two more chapters out there currently, neither two or three are out on Steam as of yet, if they ever will be. I hate the fact that they're not on there, because it would strengthen the appeal of this one- because how many people want to buy something that was never finished? I suppose that also makes it just like the old 80s adventure cartoons-not many of them were ever finished, either.

    Steam wants ten bucks for it- while I kind of enjoyed it, I don't think it's a ten-dollar game. I'd pay five for it, though.

    I wish more of it was out on Steam, because there's a great story here, and it would really help if there were two chapters for fifteen, because that would sell this game in a heartbeat. I'd call it completely average, but I'd look forward to part 2 if it ever made it to Steam.

    TL;DR - An average RPG with a fun gimmick to it. Still average in every other way, though. 5/10.

    Hahaha :lol:

    I just finished work and was printing off some applications for visa stuff, the timing was perfect :cool:

    Also, talking of Far Cry 3, I'm a good couple hours into Primal on PS4 and it does a fantastic job of feeling different enough from the mainline games. It's so much more brutal and heavy with the violence, I'm thoroughly enjoying it save for one thing; the fucking framerate just tanks after a while, no idea why. Could be my console, could be the game, who knows. But for the times it works smoothly, daaaaaaamn it's good.
