Dramatic Plot Twist

Featured

A running gag among friends and That Game Club, is that my life and especially the romantic aspect of it is like a shoujo manga. I fell in love with my brother’s best friend, whom I had befriended when we were 6 and 8 years old. He had a not so good relationship, I became his talking partner through the tough times and we became very close. Fast forward, and we eventually got together (after I finally AFTER YEARS figured out I was romantically in love) and fast forward a few more years and we’re here today, at this post.

No wait, let’s back up just a bit. Continue reading

Taisho Alice Volume I

A while back Taisho Alice was released in English by E2 Gaming. Rants were burning all over my Twitter timeline and as a reviewer, I can’t look away from this. This post, however, will probably be a bit ranty. Okay, not just a bit, a lot. I’m also choosing to entirely skip the summary, because in this post I will focus on taking this game – and the company localising it – apart. I suggest reading the description on VNDB or find one of the English bloggers’ review of the Japanese games for a summary or the like.

No Game No Life 3

A relationship of mutual trust going beyond normal bounds?–No. To put another person at the top of the list of elements that constitute oneself is not what is called trust. At this point, it was a condition for existence. These two, all metaphor and hyperbole aside, were truly–two in one. Warped. Broken. But, when you put them together, they joined as if so designed into a complete one. It defied comprehension.
