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?

Impressions: Ten Count

When the President got into an accident, Shirotani Tadaomi met Kurose. On their very first meeting, Kurose could tell right away that Shirotani is Mysophobic and said that it’s pretty bad while suggesting it would be better to consult a doctor about it. Shirotani was left perturbed by the encounter. Who is Kurose? And how was he able to tell Shirotani’s condition?
From Kitsu

Our MC and uke-kun, Shirotani, has misophobia and surprise surprise, this series treats it with respect and realism. That’s right, no magical dick here to heal diseases, cause it doesn’t work like that! 👏👏👏

In fact, there’s a rawness and darkness, no punches pulled as we see both the damages it has caused to him -his hands are completely fucked up, full of wounds and bleeding/cracks – but also how he sees the world. When the filth/darkness spreads, you can both see and feel how it impacts him.

There’s nothing quite as visual media to show how a character sees the world, themselves, especially when making full use of imagery. Something that doesn’t exist or can’t be seen on the naked eye, can be represented in a strong way like this.

From the moment they meet, as Kurose saves Shirotani’s boss from being flattened by a truck, he sees clearly through Shirotani. Kurose immediately says he has mysophobia, and pushes him to try to get treatment. What would be farfetched isn’t by the discovery that Kurose is a psychiatrist, and so he really just wants to help him lead a better life.

But is that true? Is that really it?

Impressions: A Guy Like You

Go Siwon’s dreams are constantly visited by the clever, beautiful Kang Jinha. In the dream, Jinha keeps on mentioning this “incident” that happened between them but Siwon can’t remember anything! And how can it feel so real? Luckily for Siwon, hints about the “incident” start to appear and Siwon is able to regain his memory bit by bit. How will their relationship change at the end of it all?

From MU

The lovely Happy did a post about this, and so I decided to read it, you can read her post here.

The first thing that stood out for me was the art, gorgeous scenes with the two main characters. Also Jinha is too gorgeous for this world, also I’d like him to step on me when he gets angry because /coughs

Considering this is a webtoon, the quality is just amazing. The coloring is one of the things that super stands out. This has more quality than some games. Heck, I’d love to see Waje work on a game, the art is beautiful, the coloring slays me in, and the guys can get it any time of the day. Plus Waje does terrifying expressions as well as beautiful, bless 🙏🙏👌

Jinha flashes hot and cold, which I usually don’t like, but there are always this sense that he does it because he has reasons behind it. Not just to make some drama, et all.

Before I go and detail some spoilers, for you all that don’t want them, I just want to assure that this is NOT like Killing Stalking. I know friends say Jinha reminds them of a softer Sanwon, but considering is a psychopath that likes killing and inflicting pain, I think it’s NOT TRUE.

Jinha has been in love with Siwon way before, and this push and pull of theirs starts from Siwon not remembering what happened between them. While Jinha does have a temper, and legit terrifying expressions, he’d never hurt Siwon physically. In fact, Siwon hurts Jinha far more than Jinha ever does, so /shrugs

Now for SPOILAAAS ALERT

Impressions: Project X Zone 2

Let me just say this: I am impressed, I am thirsting for the game now.

This game is badass, like seriously badass. I’m so enthused I decided to give it a try, best decision in my life ever!

I thought this was going to be a fighter like Blazblue, but nope. It’s an interesting hybrid of SRPG and fighting. The maps/style are like Devil Survivor series, but when entering fights it’s badass, no barrels hold, kickass fighting combos. I never thought I’d see this kind of mix, but it works so good!

The combos/moves are flashy, fun and just plain awesome. This was a load of fun, plus it is a big demo, love that! Prologue + a few available chapters, and if you keep the save from the demo, you get bonuses for the full game (≧∇≦)/

I’ll admit my interest in this, prior to playing it, was solely that it had Ace Attorney characters in it, but after this I’m now thirsting and adding it to my wishlist “ψ(`∇´)ψ

Definitely a demo worth playing, and it has story, with cute but detailed graphics, and such a wide range of characters. I’m really looking forward to more. Why can’t I play it already ;_;

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

Impressions: Aeterno Blade Demo

Nope. Nopity nope. The game isn’t my cup of tea in terms of genre, the graphics aren’t all that bad, but the gameplay and overall progress isn’t satisfying or fun.

This is a platformer with side scroller and action mixed into one, think Muramasa, but with none of the fineness and gorgeousness involved. Not only it’s it clunky, it’s pretty frustrating and confusing, and that’s just in a demo. You’d usually choose the best ways to showcase the game, not the most bland ones.

I was pretty stoked it was a female MC, but naaah, you don’t want to get involved in this mess of a game.

Overall, it killed any thirst I had for the game and nope, not investing in this.

If you think you might like it, give it a go, after all, that’s why there’s demos for playing 😁

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