Republique (Thief’s Reflection)

gotgame.comRepublique was developed by Camouflaj and Logan Games. This game was good but was very similar to another game that I’ve played a while back called Thief and if you’ve played Thief then you know what I’m talking about.

Where your sneaking around almost the entire time, trying to find where to go next and only attacking when you get caught sneaking around and all that. Those traits were the same but Republique  was like the futuristic, sci-fi version of it with a different storyline and characters. The main character being a woman named Hope who was saying that people are trying to find her so they can erase her. At first, I thought she was talking about people trying to kill her but no. She literally meant erase as in wiping her memory of not just recent events but of everything about her, too.

In the game we control her and the mysterious person behind the cellphone that she keeps talking to. Our job is to help her get out of the prison city called Metamorphosis and along the way we discover how evil and corrupt the people that hold Hope there are. Hope’s character kind of pissed me off sometimes just because the way she acts during some situations. At the same time, I can understand why she is the way she is. The rest of the Pre-Cals and herself (that’s what there called) were pretty much sheltered and never got to see the rest of world, so common sense doesn’t come into play when comes to her making decisions and stuff which is why I regret pressing the ‘let Hope decide’ button when it shows up some times.

What really got me though was the ending. I always say this but I’m not going to spoil it for the people who haven’t played it yet. But, I was really pissed off at what she ended up doing in the end but at the same time I can understand so it makes me frustrated. So, for people who have played and watched the ending let me ask you, did she make the right choice?

We mess with a lot of people in this game which I enjoyed and if you into game like Thief where you sneak around and cause mischief then this is for you. But, if you don’t have not one patient bone in your body then your most likely going to get bored or get so frustrated that you end up throwing the controller across the room and into your tv (that poor tv).

Trails Of Cold Steel

gamoha.euThis game was developed by Nihon Falcom and I have to say that I really loved this game a lot. Their were so many good things about it that I was kind of sad and frustrated when it ended when it did and I’ll tell you why later. But first the story itself………

It first starts out kind of normal, you know the new kid who we know as Rean comes to Thor’s Academy, a military school, to better himself and all that but during his first day seven students including himself get randomly selected to form a new class called Class VII. In this school, your social status decided which class you would be in. The royals or really rich nobles would be Class 1, Nobles who aren’t as rich are in class 2 and so on and so forth until it gets to Class 6 which you can probably guess are the poor, common people. So, the board of directors decided to see what would happen if randomly selected students from different social classes were to be put together in one class.

And so Class VII was born and so does the trouble. Obviously, the students fight amongst themselves while trying to get to know each other. Also, fighting off monsters and terrorists that are trying to invade their country. This group has a knack into getting into trouble, but then again it wouldn’t be much of an action game if they never did get into some kind of trouble now would it?

What I liked about this game were the different characters, the dating sim likeness they put in the game where you had to keep spending time with one of your friends to increase the bond between you and the storyline. Man, the ending to Trails of Cold Steel really got me. First off, I wasn’t expecting so many people to being bad guys in the end and if you’ve haven’t played the game yet and are planning to in the near future then you’ll never guess who C turns out to be. I was frustrated and shocked how the entire story in the game did a total 180 on me. I wanted to see what it would happen so bad that I bought the second game in the series to see what happened to everyone.

Yes! There is a second game to series out there!

Many types of gamers could definitely get into it. If you like good storyline but don’t really care about the battles then theirs an easy mode for you and vice versa. If you like sim dating games or anything similar I would recommend this game. So far no true love interest has appeared but it might be getting there. Also, this would be a good game for beginners or for people who simply enjoy a good rpg game like myself.

To tell you the truth, I wouldn’t be surprised if this were to become an anime or something because it certainly has the potential to be one. The first game in the series has been beaten and now its on to the next one! What will happen to Rean and his friends this time?

Play the game to find out!

Sherlock Holmes

Just finished Sherlock Holmes the Devil’s Daughter not too long ago and I know that I probably haven’t talked about the previous Sherlock Holmes game in the past so I’ll talk about both so you guys don’t get confused or anything. This game was developed by FrogWares and I have to say that this one is a bit better than the last one.

 

The story already starts out epic and action because the first thing you see is a man (whom you find out later that its Sherlock Holmes) running in the middle of the woods from a mysterious figure while being shot at and the only thing that I could think of was…did he get away?

Later, we find out the answer to that question but I’m not going to spoil it for the people who haven’t played it yet. In this game, I noticed a lot of different things that the previous didn’t do or show. Like the fact that both characters appearances have changed, you can go more rooms in his apartment than last time and that Holmes adopted a daughter!

The last one I was not expecting, even though, the freaking title says the Devil’s Daughter right on the cover. I was kind of hoping it was someone else’s daughter. When I first saw her I was like does a wife too that I don’t know about in this game too? As you guys can guess, Sherlock Holmes in the last game was pretty much single with no love interest in mind. But, then they say adopted and now I’m thinking why in the hell did he adopt a little girl?

People I’m not being mean or anything but if you’ve watched the movies or played the last game then you guys will know why him being a parent or even trying to start a family would be like mission impossible for this guy. Just like the last game it had about 5 different cases where you gather evidence and decide who the criminal is. I’m usually good at detective games but this one had me doubting myself the entire time I played. Also, this one had a lot more puzzle games than the last one which frustrated me to know end. For most of the puzzles after you die a number of times a skip option would appear which I happily clicked one.

A woman named Alice appears in the game and before I even played the game other players would say that this was probably a potential love interest. But, when I saw her she instantly reminded me of the lady thief in the first Sherlock Holmes movie and I instantly knew she was up to no good. Again not going to spoil what happens between these two but I will tell you that it gets crazy………and creepy!!!

Theirs one thing that I seem to notice throughout the whole game that’s been bugging me and I was surprised when I was surfing the net and no one seemed to notice that this was a bit odd to me. If you’ve played the game, then you’ve seen the William Halmington photo and my first thought when I saw it was……ISN’T THIS THE SAME GUY PHOTO FROM UNTIL DAWN?! If you’ve played Until Dawn then you know what I’m talking about when your walking around and you find clues and you find this guy’s picture of him slowly being turned into a Wendigo. It bugged me the entire time I was playing and kept looking at the photo over and over and then looked up the Until Dawn photo and they do look similar.

I kept thinking maybe they were made by the same people. There have been lots of times when old stuff from previous games would pop up in newer games from the same company, so I thought that was the case here. The answer I got was ……no. Two different games from two different companies. For people who have played Until Dawn and Sherlock Holmes the Devil’s Daughter, I would like for you guys to try to compare to see if it’s not just me who thinks this is really weird. Again since no one seemed to have come to this realization at the similarity I was only able to get the photo to Until Dawn once I can find a Sherlock Holmes version of it, I will put it up here, as well.

 

Overall, this is a pretty good game better than its last one. I loved the storyline and the characters, if you like puzzle/mystery or detective games then you’ll like this game a lot. Even for me who doesn’t enjoy puzzle games very much, I still very much enjoyed the story.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Source: thevitalounge.net

I really love the Corpse Party series from the manga all the way to all of the video games they made. Corpse Party has been getting more and more popular over the years because of the incredible horror/mystery surrounding it. This one was made by Makoto Kedōin and developed by Team GrisGris. For those of you who don’t know what Corpse Party is about; it’s about a group of teenagers who decide to perform the Sachiko Forever Charm which is said to anyone who performs the charm will be together forever. Unfortunately, right after they perform the ritual an earthquake starts shaking the entire school and not long after they find themselves in an entirely different school filled with tortured souls and killer ghosts.

It’s a pretty cool show and I recommend anyone who likes horror or mystery to watch it. Just don’t get too attached to any of the characters…….they might not live too long.

 

The latest Corpse Party game is called Corpse Party Blood Drive and I already got freaked out by it by playing the first five minutes of it. You guys may not know it, but I tend to stay away from horror games just because I don’t like jump scares all that much. I will play them from time to time, but only if I think I can handle it. Corpse Party was the exception because I like the series so much. I thought it was going to be like the previous where there’s mostly talking and you have to move here and there to find stuff to move on.

Boy, was I way off with this one. .

The previous games is just like I said before they mostly talk and find stuff while avoiding ghosts, but it wasn’t that scary. They completely changed the game with this one though. In this game, after all the crap happened in the other ones and they finally escaped the school. It turns out that dark powers of the school were becoming so strong that they didn’t even need to drag all the way to the school after you performed the charm to torment or kill you. If you did it in the real world, your horrible death was pretty much guaranteed to happen. Also, Ayumi stupidly goes back to Heavenly Host after a strange boy tells her that the curse has expanded and she is the only one that can stop it. Again I thought it was a stupid move to go back at all. First off, you’re taking the advice of a complete stranger that seems to know all about you.(creeper alert!) Then, she decides it would be perfectly fine to right back after she just back from there by her fucking self!!! Her stupidity meter went up the freaking charts when she decided to do that.

During that part before she was about to go, I thought it would give me an option or something but that didn’t happen. So, I had to watch make her do these things while I shook my head at her and called her a selfish dumbass. Also, theirs a lot more of the adventure feature in this game and a lot more running away from ghosts, you just don’t know when their going to show up and start chasing you all over the place!

 

I’m not going to tell you how this game ends, but a lot of epic and crazy shit happens in this game. So, if you don’t mind a nice little horror game to pass the time then by all means play it and see how you like it.

Side Note: To all of my beloved readers/followers who I appreciate for continuing for reading my blogs, I would like to know if theirs anything you would like for me to talk about or even improve on to make this better for you guys. I can handle all kinds of criticism so give me your best shot!  🙂

Parasyte

Everyone has bad habits here and there and for me this particular bad habit of mine sometimes gets on my last nerve because I end up getting mad at myself in the end. I don’t know if other people have a problem with this but when I’m not sure of something like a game or anime, I seem to hold off on it because I instantly think that its not my cup of tea. Later though, when I finally go fuck it and try the game or episode I get angry in the end because I find out how good it is and why I didn’t try it sooner.

That’s how I felt after watching one episode of Parasyte. After, the first episode ended I was totally hooked on it and had to see more.  This was made by Hitoshi Iwaaki who created the manga and the actual anime series was created by Madhouse. This anime revolves around a teenage boy named Shinichi who is nerdy looking, nervous and friendly towards anyone that he meets. He also has a total crush on red-headed girl named Murano who for some strange reason keeps asking him from time to time,” Are you really Shinichi Izumi?”

It kind of pissed me off every time she asked throughout the entire show. I mean, why does she keep asking that? Would it make her feel different if he said no, but she already knows its him so why does she keep freaking asking him that same stupid question? I actually got really happy when he told her to shut up after she asked that same damn question for like the hundredth time to him while he was in bad ass mode. To tell you guys the truth, I really didn’t like her all that much. Everytime I saw her I always thought that something was a little off about her but I didn’t know what. Wasn’t sure if I wanted to him to end up with Kana either but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Basically, Shinichi was living an ordinary high school life up until one day he wakes up to something digging into his arm. He stopped it from going anywhere else in his body, but the next day he summed it all up as a bad dream until his arm started to transform and talk to him, at least. His arm later named Migi explains that he was going for his brain so he could take over his body and eat humans for nourishment. Later, they keep running into their more people infected and Shinichi has decided that he will get rid of as many parasite infected humans as he can.

Shinichi goes through a lot of shit in this show and sometimes you feel so bad for him. Its never revealed where the parasites come from. They never make it clear, but I’m betting that their aliens because in the first episode they were all falling from their small pods from the sky and none of them have any idea why their even there in the first place. I wish they would have hinted more but I guess we’ll never know. I really like when Shinichi was badass looking with his hair gelled back and everything, he looked really hardcore to me even his personality changed drastically. Again if you watch it or have read it, you’ll see that he goes through a lot of crap. To me it was like his own weird, parasite version of breaking down and rebelling. Again you know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen it.

There is a lot gore and action in this anime and I love it. My only wish was that he would have stayed in badass mode, but oh well. If you like mutants, action, gore and a bit of romance meshed into one then this one is definitely for you. There is so much to like about this anime its crazy, but I know it won’t get a second season.

No point, really.

The ending is so heart warming and funny at the same time that I thought I was going to cry for a minute. This is worth watching especially for people who are fans of sci-fi and horror anime. Hope you enjoy it!

Danganronpa Legacy Continues

Image result for monukuma

A long time ago, I talked about the game Danganronpa and the second game, as well. Well, this time, I’ll talk about the third game, too. Also, I’ve been hearing that an exciting fourth game is going to come out sometime soon in January of next year. I’m really excited to see what they end up brining to the table this time around considering what happened last time in the second game.

 

In case some of you didn’t know or remember what happened in the last game. The last surviving students of the killing game, eventually, discover that their in a virtual world and the mastermind, Junko Enoshima, is trying to download her mind into their bodies so she can control the world in different bodies. Together we end up destroying her once and for all and get released from the virtual world.

It was a very nice ending and all, I really enjoyed the second game but those two games left behind a lot of questions that needed answering and luckily for us the game’s developers decided give us some answers with the game Danganronpa: Ultra Despair Girls. I really liked this game because it was different from the last two game because this one was an adventure/shooter game. Also, it not only shows how the chraracters from the previous game are doing but it fills a lot of holes that were left behind by the two last games. So, that was pretty good.

Ultra Despair Girls was happening after the first killing game in the first game was over. One of questions left behind in the game was…..what happened to Makoto’s family? Not going to reveal what happened to all of them but his sister Komaru is the main character in this game as she tries to survive the city filled with killer robots and homicidal children. This shooter game is a real nice change of pace with a story just as good as the other ones.

Moving on from that, we have the upcoming release of a fourth game. When I heard this I was wondering what was going to happen since the mastermind is dead and her successor went away. But, once I saw the cover I already had a guess what was going to happen, you see the little girl a little more grown up on the cover, so it looks like she’s going to return to wreak havoc and have one last showdown. I’m telling you guys I’m so excited about this game and you already know that I’m going to one of the first people to buy this game the moment I find out that its out.

Ao No Exorcist Crew

Source: http://www.cosplaydeal.com

Last time, I didn’t get to talk a lot about the characters in the anime Ao No Exorcist, except for the twins and the father. So, I’ll talk about them now. I start with the sweetest and gentlest character, Shiemi.

Shiemi is the daughter of a herb shop owner and this is where Yukio and probably other exorcists come for supplies. Shiemi decides to attend True Cross Academy after an incident with a demon that lived in her garden that almost killed her. This girl is extremely shy and doesn’t have any friends because she used to spend all of her time tending to her garden and because of this some people like to take advantage of her kind nature.

I thought that it was good that Yukio and Rin because she would have been in some serious trouble. Speaking of the twins, I can’t really tell if she’s in love with Yukio or Rin or both of them but we’ll see as time goes on.

Next is Ryuji who is also a student at True Cross Academy. Now his personality kind of shocked me because when you first look at him, he looks like another thug uses intimidation to get what he wants. Actually, not only is he rich but amazingly smart which flip most people out especially Rin. Those two become rivals and end up hating each other’s guts, but I think they’ll end becoming the best of friends in the end.

Izumo is another student at the Academy. You can already tell that this girl has some issues to work out. First of all, this is a know it all and other than Noriko Paku, she has no other friends. Izumo is a really prideful person and loves to be the center of attention when she can get it. Apparently, she has a talent for taming other demons because apparently its a really rare trait to have. So, when Sheimi turns out to have the same talent as Izumo and has a more likeable personality than her, she makes it her mission to make Shiemi miserable.

Like I said before about people taking advantage of her kind nature, Izumo uses this to make Shiemi do whatever she wants and says that she’s supposed to if they want to be friends. Since, Shiemi has no experience in the friendship department, she blindly believes this. I felt so sorry for her during that time and I also wanted to know what was Izumo’s problem.

Nemu would have to be the laziest and weirdest student in the whole class. He never does anything and most of the time, he’s either playing video games or is talking to his hand puppet. You never know what this guy is thinking and I hope he does something awesome before the season ends.

Shura ends up becoming another wild twist in this awesome anime. First of all, in the beginning all he did was playing video games and ignore everybody. He wouldn’t talk to nobody. Secondly, it at turns out that not only can Shura kick ass, but is actually a she! And a hot she, at that! Shura was an inspector ordered to watch Rin to see if he was a threat or not to their cause. Later, she becomes one of the new teachers to teach the class. I really like her, she’s got a lot of spunk and likes giving off that tough girl attitude. For some reason, she likes wearing a bra and shorts all the time, no matter the weather and has a sword magically come out of her chest.

The person last person I think I’m going to talk today is Director Mephisto Pheles. This guy is a total mystery. This guy was one of my favorite characters, he was so funny and he kind of reminds me of a clown or a magician by how he dresses. The moment I saw him I knew he was a demon. The fangs, ears and the way he can transform himself kind of gave it away. Their are a lot of questions surrounding him like why is he helping the humans? What’s in it for him? Are Mephisto and Rin related somehow? If you want any of these questions to be revealed your going to have to watch the show.
