This last month has been a very strange time for us all. I know a lot of people are finding the lockdown incredibly difficult, which is totally understandable, but I’m left feeling a little guilty for somewhat enjoying hiding myself away from the world. There’s no doubt I’m a complete shut in – I’ve only left the house on one occasion in the past 7 weeks and I’m not even beginning to feel stir crazy. Unfortunately, my boyfriend had to go back to work as an essential worker, so I’ve been hiding out in my family home for the past 4 weeks without seeing him (which has definitely been the worst part), however, we have been spending a lot more time gaming online together than usual.
The next few months are looking phenomenal for new releases and there are so many new games I have on my wishlist right now. I don’t think there’s ever been a year I’ve had my eye on so many new releases before, but obviously I won’t have time to play them all at once.
I heard a fair few mixed feelings about The Caligula Effect: Overdose on its release back in March, but since then I haven’t heard a peep so here I am reviewing my experience from April. I’d had my eye on the game a few months previous to release, ranking it 2nd on my Most Anticipated Games of the Year list, so I guess you could say I was intrigued – mainly due to the unique combat system and the strong presence of vocaloid music. I’ve not really taken much interest in JRPGs until recently and I’ve never actually got round to finishing one entirely… Until now!
