Socks, aka Forou, aka the best character in Time Hollow, image from the woefully unfinished Wikia.
Just finished it tonight, except for the secret endings.
Tiiiiiime Hollow! Such a cute game. The scope was pretty ordinary (and I can’t say that it handled time travel particularly expertly or anything), but the game mechanics were dope, and it has pretty much the prettiest menus ever.
Running through puddles after the rain, the scent of Pecha berries on the breeze.
nothing makes my skin crawl quite like the word “alleged” attached to stories about sexual violence
That’s, uh, necessary standard legal practice.
Until the alleged is actually sentenced in court (meaning court proceedings are over), to say they objectively Did A Crime is defamatory and definitely grounds for legal action.
You think a Big Name who goes to court on a sexual abuse charge won’t absolutely ruin everyone who spoke ill of them if they’re cleared? Nah, mate.
It would be unnecessary to use alleged after a sentencing (unless they try to appeal since that would resume court proceedings), but there’d be no real reason to do that. Even for trashy politically awful papers, a convicted criminal is far more juicy than an alleged one.
HEY, DO YOU HAVE A PSP OR PS VITA?
Then you should totally play Sweet Fuse. It’s an Otome game made by fuckin’ Comcept (Soul Sacrifice, Mighty No. 9).
Do dating games kinda weird you out? The ones where you play as a straight guy end up problematic and the ones where you play as a straight girl end up with you being an abuse victim.
BUT NOT IN SWEET FUSE here you play as the niece of Keiji Inafune, and you’re fuckin’ badass. If a dude thinks he’s hot shit or says something sexist, you can GET THE FUCK ANGRY and make them apologise for their stupid bullshit.
And they thank you for calling them out!
Want intrigue? This ain’t quite a Zero Escape or a Dangan Ronpa, but there’s still lives at stake, and you solve puzzles by having THOUGHT EXPLOSIONS.
Want cute guys? Holy shit all these guys are adorable and alarmingly well-adjusted. Hang with a detective! A fortune teller! A hikkikomori! Be still my heart.
One of them is a beardy journalist who uses pocky like cigarettes and oh my GOD his story arc is the most wonderful thing.
Go do it. Get Sweet Fuse. Kiss the journalist. Rejoice.
I backburnered my playthrough of Persona 4 the Golden for this game. I regret nooooooothing
Hey so Dorian and Vivienne have me hella interested in Dragon Age
I wasn’t sold by the first game (I played a friend’s copy, picked City Elf, and Frowned Very Hard), but Inquisition looks Really Cool (I’m loving these characters, and the Monster Hunter-ish combat), and I wouldn’t mind playing at least one other game in the series before I play this new one.
Apparently Dragon Age 2 is an urban drama and you’re a sexy noble?
That sounds great - I love games that take place within a town or city, and you get to know all the residents. But I’ve also heard that people hate Dragon Age 2, though the reasons why remain unclear. So what’s the lowdown, Dragon Age fans, why is the sequel apparently so bad?
The next post will be about me announcing the test prologue build is in your inbox, I swear.
Thing is, we’ve been polishing the presentation a lot, it’s like we need the game to look good even if it’s for a test build, so we hope you appreciate that.
Thanks everyone for your support by the way, it means a lot to us!
