Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

KeClips.comI’m back and with another game to tell you all about. This one is called, “Yomawari: Midnight Shadows and it was developed by Nippon Ichi Software and was released last year in October and for good reason. This is survival horror about two young girls trying to find each other in the middle of the night after being separated by an evil spirit.

This game loves to surprise you in ways that I didn’t know were possible like in the beginning of the game it asks to turn off all the lights and asks you to look at the screen closely. It’ll even ask did you do it, so it makes you wonder if the game somehow knows if you did it or not. It would have been awesome if it could tell if you were lying or not. Anyway, I liked how you’re not even safe even when you look at an item on your menu because there are times when a spirit refuses to be ignored and by passes that screen. I’m not going to spoil it by telling you which moments so prepare your heart for that.

Left: Yui Right: Haru

Our two main characters in this story are Haru and Yui. Haru being the main protagonist in this story, but they do switch between to the two from time to time. The game starts off with a very disturbing and dark start when Yui decides to end it all and hangs herself on a tree for reasons unknown. Then, the story goes back for what I can guess hours before the separation of the two girls which confused me at first because I wasn’t sure if Yui was dead or not yet.

This is my theory about the inner working of the story, so Yui killed herself but I think that her mind was being manipulated by the evil spirit in the beginning for her to do so. The reason being is that little girls don’t really think about stuff like suicide in my opinion until there a little older to comprehend it, also the fact that she thinks that she’s still alive and looking for Haru plays a big part in my theory. From what I can guess is that Yui had such a strong desire to see Haru that after she interacted with Haru for that short amount of time, she accidently pulled Haru into the spirit world with her. That’s why during Haru’s search for Yui she sees all these monsters and ghosts and hasn’t put two and two together, she just thinks weird things happening tonight and nothing more.

Haru has a heart of steel to be running around in the dead of night looking for her best friend while avoiding all these ghosts wandering around town. I know if I was in this situation I wouldn’t be doing that I would run home, tell my parents and they would go and form a search party or whatever they wanted to do. I wouldn’t blindly run through town at night and next thing you know in the morning everyone is looking for two missing girls instead of one.

On top of that she has to avoid this scissor happy spirit, Kotowari, who tries killing her several times in this game. I don’t know what that ghost’s problem is, but it seems like he has a serious grudge against us. It sucks even more when you don’t have a health bar or anything. The moment you touch anything in the game that’s meant to harm or kill you its instant death. So, don’t be surprised or get frustrated when you end up dying a million times in a million different ways.

The ending to this story will really get you and if your into survival or horror games than I would definitely give this game a shot. I deeply enjoyed the story of these two girls trying to find each other even in this creepy setting. If your faint hearted when it comes to the horror genre then you might want to steer clear of this one. I enjoyed this game very much and I hope you will, too.

Watch this video if you want to get a feel for the game and decide for yourself if you want to give this horror game a try. Enjoy

ARK: Survival Evolved

Hello and welcome everyone!

I hope you guys are excited for Christmas this year and while you wait for the inevitable holidays, I’ll start talking about the new game Ark: Survival Evolved that was developed by Studio Wildcard. While we were all waiting for it to come out it was the talk of the town. You couldn’t believe all the times I kept here over and over from my friends that ” I should play Ark” or ” You play this game, it’s awesome!”

With all the hype and excitement that was surrounding the game, I got really curious on how it actually is when it did come out.  Personally, I don’t play these types of games on the usual which if you didn’t know its a action-adventure survival game. But, I will if something really catches my eye about the game itself.

After a couple of hours of gameplay, I found that I was really disappointed in what I saw. This was meant to be a multiplayer game but with that feature if you do happen to be playing by yourself the developers could have added some kind of side or main storyline into the game to keep the player entertained enough to find other player to play with. While playing I felt two constant emotions frustration or boredom. In the beginning there is no tutorial and they make you figure everything out by yourselves and if you never figure it…….well then you don’t last long.  Whether it was intentional or not for that feature, we may never know but I didn’t like the fact that it acted like I was a seasoned player of previous Ark so in turn should have already have an idea what was what.

Boredom comes naturally in a game like this when you do the same thing over and over with no change. When you do finally get a hang of the game and it seems like nothing can touch you, it gets boring fast. Quickly, you try to find something entertaining to do while again wait for other players that want to hang out with you but as time drags on nothing seems to catch your attention long enough. I literally played like that for a couple of hours before I told myself I had to stop the madness and end it. So I killed myself (in the game of course) a couple of times in different ways before deciding that this game isn’t for me.

The only thing this game gets praise for its great graphics and the gaming potential that it does have. I’m not sure if this was a good game but wrong type of gamer type situation because some people out there do actually enjoy this. I just don’t know how. This game is for very seasoned type gamers that actually are into these types of games or have played the previous Ark games and know how to get the most out of it.

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!  🙂
