My memory, as it turns out, is quite crappy and I can't exactly picture where you are in the story right now.


Thanks! I've actually been avoiding most of the Game Overs (not always successfully) unless it seems like I need to go that way to get a key. I feel bad putting Fusaishi through unnecessary misery :P

I wrapped up the "Darkness" chapter last night, which I was glad about, and started the next chapter having a very, very important conversation with Chiemi.
It's the conversation where it turns out she's looping too, and you start to work together to figure things out.
I'm definitely happy to move on from "Darkness", because it was honestly something of a downer.

Well, I wrapped up Raging Loop (at least the main story) the other day. I'll be honest, the ending got kind of bonkers, and I'm not sure it entirely held together as a narrative, but all the characters' actions felt authentic and made sense given their character arcs, so the weirdness didn't really bother me too much. I've played through a few of the "Extra" chapters though, and, wow, some of those get extremely bizarre. It seems like they're all cannon, too, which does add to some of my confusion with the ending. Like, if some of the stuff from the "Extra" chapters was true, why didn't it come up during the main game? I'm curious to go through the full game (or most of it) one last time too, so I can see all the bonus scenes that get added in after you beat the game. I feel like there's still a fair amount of hidden stuff, as even watching some of the "Hint" sections after beating the game reveals some extra content.

All in all, though, it gets a hearty thumbs up, albeit with a slightly puzzled look on my face as I deliver it.

I finally started Muv-Luv Unlimited: The Day After last night. Pretty slow to start, but I'm hoping it picks up steam. I'm about halfway through Episode 00.

I like Muv-Luv. I get the feeling Elkin does too.

I'm playing Robotics;Notes Elite right now, which is part of the Robotics;Notes Double Pack on Switch. Unlike Steins;Gate Elite, which was a complete rehaul of the original, Robotics;Notes Elite is more like an enhanced port.

I'm not too far in, but the general gist of the plot is this... it's about these kids who are trying to build a robot, like a life-size Gundam. While doing so they get caught up in all this conspiratorial stuff. Yeah, though not a true "sequel" it's most certainly a "follow-up" to Steins;Gate.

The characters are displayed via 3D models. They look decent enough, but every character has a constant swaying animation that never stops and I just can't get used to it. Good visuals overall though. Navigation through the game is similar to that of Steins;Gate, but instead of old school flip-phone text messages the protagonist instead uses tweeps (tweets). I really don't like this. Part of it has to do with my hatred for the real Twitter, but regardless of that the implementation is just awkward. In Steins;Gate the player was made aware when their phone received a message. Here, the player has to manually check for "tweeps" before they become locked out of responding. It's tedious, and of course the correct responses aren't clear. I'm using a walkthrough. In true visual novel fashion the first tweep that needs to be responded to is "What is a titty?" Yeah........

Anyway, I like the game, but it's no Steins;Gate (or Chaos;Head for that matter).
