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!
With another month almost over, it’s time once again to review my monthly gaming progress for May. I’m tweaking the format for my Monthly Summary posts slightly from now on as I felt my categories were becoming a little repetitive. It hasn’t changed a great deal from before, but I’m hoping this will work out better in the long run.
Ori and the Blind Forest had been sat in my backlog for almost a year. I took an interest in the game way before then due to the stunning visuals originally catching my eye but I’ve always found myself waiting for the price to drop. However, when the sales came around, there always seemed to be a different game at the top of my priority list. Eventually I bought it for 50% off and I can vouch that it was absolutely worth the £7.49 I paid. I’d been putting off playing it for way too long so decided to finally take the plunge last month. I’m so glad I did and my only regret is that I didn’t play it sooner.
Personally, I find there’s nothing better than getting stuck right into a well written visual novel. I don’t always feel like playing games when I get in from work, so diving into something with minimal demand on my end is a great way to chill out after a long day. That being said, here I am with my first review of the year for my first 2019 game completion.
Here I am kicking of the 30 Day MMO Challenge: Guild Wars 2 Edition with Section 1! This challenge was originally a 30 Day WoW Challenge created by Ruubin Dolle, but I thought it would be cool to tweak a few questions and do a GW2 version since I’m not a WoW player (with her approval of course)!
If you’re looking for a game to play this Hallowe’en, myself and WesleyWhale have got you covered! Throughout October, we’ve both taken the time to investigate some horror games on Steam. We decided to pick a handful of small games so we could get them finished in order to give a decent review for each of them.
This list also features a few free games, so if you’re looking for something very last minute then there are options! Steam also has a Hallowe’en sale on right now so I’ll leave the current price list with each game too!
The Hakuoki Otome Visual Novel adventure continues with Edo Blossoms, the second and final section to the Hakuoki Shinkai: Fuukaden series released on PC by Idea Factory in March 2018. I played the first half, Kyoto Winds, back in May so I’ve been intrigued to finish the whole story… And now I have, 100% completed in fact.
Episode 4 of Living World Season 4, A Star To Guide Us, has just been announced for Guild Wars 2 and will be released on Tuesday 18th September! The previous episode, Long Live The Lich was released 3 months ago and now it’s time to embark on the next chapter of the adventure!
Tsumihoroboshi is the sixth chapter in the Higurashi, When They Cry Series, and the answer arc to Chapter 1: Onikakushi. The original visual novel was released by 07th Expansion in Japan in 2005, and was recently released in English for PC on 14th June 2018.
As Chapter 6 is the answer arc for Chapter 1: Onikakushi, it is important that you play Chapter 1 first. I also advise that you play all the chapters in order for the best possible experience. You can see my reviews for Onikakushi, Watanagashi, Tatarigoroshi, Himatsubushi and Meakashi here.
I can’t believe it’s the end of the month already! Between my busy work schedule and seeing my boyfriend every weekend (twice as much as usual), I’ve barely had any time to myself to jump into solo gaming. I’ve still managed to fit a few things in though including the rebranding of my blog, although there are a few changes that still need to be made!
