Is a bejeweled-like game like Yume100, but with monsters like Pokémon. Perhaps that is why it didn’t captivate me and I proceeded to uninstall after a few minutes of playing. I was never into Pokémon, I didn’t have a Nintendo until a DS a few years ago when I bought it with my own money. I never watched the series either. I did watch Digimon but never watched after Tamers/3. I think I remember distantly playing Digimon World for PS1 but I don’t think I understood how to play or the story.

So I’ve been Love Live crazy since I discovered the app in Google store and today I decided to search for a male version of Love Live. Big mistake, I discovered a couple and I’m falling down the hole. I also had very dear enablers telling me names via Twitter. I’m blaming them! XD

Either way, I quickly discovered this game is not in fact like Love Live. It’s not a rhythm game at all, it’s a management just like Idolmaster. You’re tasked with training the idols, deciding which classes they take and can battle with others via stats of the cards you draw.

*:・゚✧Show Spotlight: Emma Approved

Created by  Bernie Su
No. of Episodes  72
Running Time  4-8 minutes per episode

I watched The Diary of Lizzie Bennet halfway, stopped for a break because it’s a huge series and discovered this made by the same team (with different actors).

I didn’t really know what to expect because Lizzie Bennet had been low budget (and it showed, really), so I was really surprised and delighted at how wider and livelier this was from the outset.

Mind you, completely helped by the lovely actress playing the role of Emma, Joanna Sotomura, that has so much camera presence. She’s beautiful, and I’m a sucker for cute and beautiful. It helped that the cast kept growing with each episode (unlike Diaries which until halfway was when they started bringing in anyone outside the sisters).

Mind you I’m not bashing shows, I liked Diaries it’s just after watching it, it was very refreshing to watch this because of how much more there was (from stages, actors, props, changes of place every episode).

I was completely riveted to Emma and binge watched to the end in a ridiculously small time. Helped by the fact it was not only finished, but fully and freely available in YouTube (which still are, and I adore this new format for shows!).

Genre(s) Adventure

Is a really cute detective/puzzle/adventure game. McKenzie has a pet mushroom and weird friends that get involved in the weirdest situations.

This is a very upbeat, funny game with really nice graphics and really out there solutions to the mysteries. Which is fine, the game isn’t touted as a super serious, realistic detective mystery.
