Well, the tweeter was so excited they had to pause several time mid-sentence.

Anyone hear about the Bokuten controversy?

I grabbed the game days before it was pulled, incidentally.

Well, I read through Saya no Uta in a single day. That was, uh, something.......

I still need to write a proper review of Saya no Uta, but I started another VN the other day -- Raging Loop on the Switch.

This one originally came out in 2015 (courtesy of Kemco, believe it or not) but didn't reach America until 2019. It reminds me a lot of Higurashi. It features a ~*creepy Japanese hamlet*~ for a setting, and the death/rebirth loop seems to be something that's literally happening within the story (somehow?) rather than simply being a mechanic.

I'm not very far, but it's entertaining. The localization is good and sort of reminiscent of Steins;Gate but this one's even more meme-y. One of the first lines of the game is "we live in a society."

Okay, after completing the original Steins;Gate, and subsequently playing two remakes (well, one remake and one "demake") and two spin-offs, I'm finally playing the proper sequel in the form of Steins;Gate 0 (Vita version).

So far, it's pretty decent story-wise. The art style is more generic, though, and there are flashbacks featuring the old (better) art which feels a bit odd. Not totally in love with the new characters either. But it's certainly compelling enough to make me want to roll through a chapter a day. I'm anticipating another 10-ish chapters and 25-30 total hours. 8)

Just wanted to share some recent VN pickups / preorders. Thought you (Bone) might want to give them some consideration.


SeaBed for Switch. I pre-ordered the limited edition from playasia. Reviews for this look great!

Nurse Love Obsession. I ordered from Limited Run Games. I hate LRG but I love physical.

Aokama - Four Rhythms Across the Blue. Ordered limited edition from Amazon.


I'm still slogging through Muv Luv Extra. I know it will be worth it but ugh this is tough. Also on chapter 7 of Thimbleweed Park. Loving every single minute of this game. Love it. Highly recommended.
