Destiny Ninja 2+: Shiroya is More than You Bargained For

wp-1475326764314.png

Shiroya is the shota of the group. He’s an adorable bean that is pretty carnivorous, I mean first CG you get he’s hugging her naked stomach, and you can bet your ass it’s on purpose (^_<)~☆

He’s bright, cheery, cute and so supportive to Ayame, so of course I had to pick him as my first route for this game. I must say, do not regret at all! Shotas usually have better routes and stories, maybe because I love coming-of-age stories. Maybe it’s because their jovial, happiness masks darkness, sadness. They’re complex beans, and never what they appear like, so they’re intriguing.

Shiroya hides a lot of pain and hurt towards his parents, and rightfully so. When he was a child, around 6-8 years, he still didn’t have any power of his own, and so his parents thought it’d be good to send him to a special, hidden training facility. There he got tortured every day by brutal instructors in order to force his powers out, and the poor kid ended up developing a split personality because of it. So even after he left the facility he refused to go back to his parents home, certain that they’d done it because all they care for is power and that they never loved him.

I’m getting ahead of myself, since I have said nothing about the main plot of the game, which is purifying the tainted symbols in the four villages, of which Shiroya belongs to the summer one, because evil spirits spread from it and wreck havoc on the villages. But that isn’t what this game focus, per se.

So then what is Shiroya’s story about? We slowly meet his other self, which is symbolised by a cold personality and reddish/orange eyes, and he says cryptic stuff. Ayame first thinks Shiroya is possessed by one the evil spirits, that is until she learns about from what exactly made him come into reality. Tho a bit like an evil spirit, he was sprout from hate, rage and the desire for revenge. I did the good ending, which meant showing the other Shiroya that Ayame also loves him, and considers him part of Shiroya.

Shiroya matures a lot during his route, he also becomes sweeter and confident in his and Ayame’s feelings, which was great to see! Plus, this game actually has DICK IN THE HOLE, even tho off-screen it’s clearly told it happened, and we get to see some fanservice (^_<)~☆

I was actually really surprised by the twist near the ending, about who the villain was, and exactly what would happen to Ayame and what Shiroya had to do. I was so blown away, I think I crapped myself all over Twitter about it. To be honest…I don’t expect much from otome mobage, because I’ve experienced some bad ones, but this one not only has a solid story, it has really great artwork, and special effects that move in the screen! AND it also has more than the same 3 tunes, each village has their own unique theme and everything!

So I highly recommend playing this game AND this route, I’ve already done Ayu’s and I wasn’t as blownaway by his route :C

Have you heard about this game before? Have you played his route? If so, I’d love to know what you think of it!

Valentine’s Reaches Mystic Messenger but Not as Expected


This time, instead of being DLC or chats to go through, it’s just After Ending story for each character. You have to go there and unlock it.  Each character’s Valentine’s  costs 20 hourglasses, so it makes a total of 100 hourglasses

I’ve been saving up for this, cause I knew they’d release something, so I’m nabbing all of them, of course. 

One thing to point out is the new artist is in charge of the new sprites and CG’s still. Valentine’s is years after the main game, where they’re married for a few years already and are more mature

Sadly I can’t say I like the new sprites or the new artist’s art still. I do notice they’ve tried to match the original, but it doesn’t reach the level of the main games artwork.

As an example, the new sprite for Yoosung:

^what Yoosung says, he has no idea how much he changed considering the art just doesn’t match the main sprites one.

I’m  still getting all the stories, I’m a bit of a completionist if it’s easy enough. But I’m really sad this is gonna be the artist for all future DLC and extras. We all got into MM because of the original artwork. I can only imagine it’s because the main artist is working on the new game Cheritz is making. 

I suspect this artist is the same one that did all the side characters sprites for the main game, and those were not up to the standards of the main cast sprites, at all. Still I hope they improve more, and actually get as beautiful as the main game, because I don’t wanna have to look at slightly uglier versions of characters I’ve come it love ORZ 

What about you? Do you like the new artwork or prefer the older? Or maybe you don’t care whichever way? Are you getting this extra/bonus content, or are you going to pass? Tell me all! 

Fire Emblem Heroes Has Arrived to Drag You to Mobile Hell

The new Fire Emblem is out, in Europe, US, Asia, and it’s becoming huge already!

I never played any of the games, I do want to tho. I wanna play the 3ds games at least, Awakening and Fates, but I decided to try this out, because why not?

There’s definitely not the nostalgia or feels for me, since I don’t know these characters previously, but it’s an interesting game. The tactical part is very easy, and the game slowly gets harder without being frustrasting. Which is a bonus because I get frustrasted easily, and also hate when sprg/trpg take forever and a day to end one single battle. None of that here. Battles take 5-10 minutes, at least in the normal difficulty.

There’s also NO PERMA DEATHS, in case anyone was wondering~.

If you’ve seen games like Puzzles and Dragons, this is similar to it in terms of overall feel. You can summon ally heroes with orbs, you soend stamina for each battle, the stamina for each battle raises but your own doesn’t.

A thing that stood out to me was that the characters, both male and female, get their clothes ripped while fighting, and I LOVE THAT. Equal fanservice makes me happy asf 🙏🙏🙏🙏👌✨

Now the negatives are mostly about frustration with how some things got implemented.

First, the friend codes are pretty bad to type, to find, to use, just uuugh. I wish there was a copy function so we can just give people instead of trying to remenber or write it down, smh.

Second, and this is MAJOR, this game crashes A LOT. Like ridiculously a lot. More than any other game I’ve ever played. I have an Asus Memo Pad 7, and it’s not the best, but it has pretty nice ram. I’m not the only one that complained from this either, I saw other people on twitter mentioning it. The only way I made it stop crashing 5 times per battle or more was: TURN OFF ANIMATIONS AND BATTLES in settings. This does mean I don’t get to see those lovely illustrations getting ripped, but I’m doinf it for my mental sanity. Otherwise, I’ll have to quit the game, really it was unplayable for me without turning those off.

Third is how you can’t level the characters by using other cards, only using crystals/shards. I’m used to that gimmick of using lower tier cards, but in here those only give SP. SP unlocks new skills for the cards, but this also means if you spent time and stamina raising the level of said cards, then it’ll have been for nothing. Now, same tier cards do give some bonus stats, but who in their right mind will use a 4 star card to give sp and some bonus points to another 4 star card??? Those are better used or saved for 5 stars cards.

I don’t know if I’ll play this game for very long, especially if Nintendo and Intelligent Systems don’t so something about it crashing so dang hard. It crashes quite often for me on the menu screen. ON THE MENU SCREEN FFS.

This does wet the apetite and made me more intrigued for the mainline FE games, I feel like I should bump Awakening up so I can play it sooner~

Have you heard about this game? Have you downloaded played it already? What do think? Has it crashed for you too, or has it been smooth sailing? Tell me all!

Let’s exchange friend codes!! Mine: 2030640957 (for easy copy and pasta for you~)

Edit (7/02) :

The game stopped working on my tablet, it wouldn’t let me pass the menu screen. I’ve since made another account on my phone this time, and no issues with crashing. Either the game isn’t optimized for tablets or it is my tablet itself. I don’t know why 😭😭😭😭

Either way, I can’t add back on that account, so add this one pls!!: 3055682546

A New Hell Has Arrived: A3! (Act! Addict! Actor!)

A new idol game has arrived to the scene, blowing away and hooking us all in.

It’s a management game like EnStars, so it’s not rhythm, which is good, and it’s also fully voiced for the main story (tho not the heroine ofc). The art is really attractive and stands out, and the VA’s do a great job. Of course, this game is in Japanese only.

Since it’s newly released, there’s lots of good stuff and they’re giving away 3 full sets of diamonds to spin the premium wheel if you do the tutorial and prequels. There’s already a wiki for the game, and some very helpful basics to start you off with it. It also has a twitter and reddit in English, and it’s only growing from here on out!

This game is harder to play than Enstars, in terms of finding and understanding how the game works, but gives waaaay more diamonds, and it’s real easy to get SSR and SR cards!

If there’s a issue, it’s really I’d like the menus and gaming to be more streamlined, but the game can only get better!

Before I leave to return to my grind on it, I’ll leave you with a character that reminded me of Zen:

There’s also a Do-S sadistic megane blondie, and lots of cute shotas, so I’m definitely in heaven.

You’ve probably seen some of these already because I’m unleashing them on my twitter 😹😹😹

Either way, definitely take advantage of how many dias they’re giving out rn to starter players~

Have you heard about this game before? Have you played it yet? Are you in hell with it like me? Who’s your fave? Mine is Matsumi, I’m weak to his lovey lines to MC tbh 😹😹😹😹👌  Either way, tell me all, I’m curious!

Impressions: Destiny Ninja 2+

From the get go the prologue blew my mind away. Ayame has a sprite, expressions, appears in CGS, has a personality, is gorgeous and has a backbone, plus she’s a fighter and ninja like the guys.

Another thing that really stood out to me was that the effects of the game move on-screen, like autumn leafs dropping down, cherry ones, snow, mist covering the characters. The production values of this game are super great!

Another amazing thing is that the OST is actually super good, heavily using Japanese instruments, gave me vibes of Okami all over again, and I love it! Plus there isn’t just one-two themes, the game has at least 10 or more themes. One for each guy, one for each village, plus the tense moments, lightehwarted moments, and loveydovey ones.

This game could be easily ported to a console, and you wouldn’t be able to tell it was mobile!

The guys sprites also change, as in clothes change, just like Ayame’s, and there’s a dude for everyone, of course ;P  The art really stands out to me as super gorgeous.

Another thing is the system of gaining coins and etc is pretty forgiving, and you don’t even really have to do it, you get a ton of in-game currency from daily draws. The game also gives a ton of drawers, so you don’t have to constantly discard things!

This game is head and shoulders above 99% of the other free mobile games, and if you haven’t played you really need to!

Have you heard about this game? Have you played it? What do you think of it?
