Another Episode: V Route has Come to Mystic Messenger

I’m kinda late to this news, but it was because I was playing the game until a route opened and I could tell people more about what to expect, without spoilers!, so here it goes.

The game is set 2 years before the Casual and Deep routes, where this time you get enrolled to be a game tester in the most creepy way possible. Blindfolded, taken to the middle of nowhere, locked into a room (basically), all because there’s free food and bishounens hahaha 😹😹

The game is 11 days just like the original game, and there’s 7 endings to attain. Which is why V route actually isn’t just V’s route, you can enter into other routes and get their endings.

There’s 80 new cgs, and all done by the original artist of the game, woo! As a route that is 300 hourglasses, we have to get good quality because that’s not a small chunk.

You have to buy V and Ray’s calling cards separately, and this is true for VIP buyers too :/

Now that that’s out of the way, I’m just going to a give a brief rundown of what’s new.

So this time around instead of 3 days, it’s 4 days to enter a route. Which also means there’s more chances of entering the others routes, though it’s hard cause I wasn’t even trying to get V and I entered his route when I was certain I’d accumulate too many Ray hearts and was heading for a bad ending.

That’s another thing, Ray or Unknow, has come as a heart wrecker, again. We get to know more about Mint Eye and Ray thanks to being in direct contact, and it’s just heart breaking. Feels abound!

Another thing I loved is that V and Ray have stickers! They’re perfect too, so you have to see them. I fell in love with them because those stickers aaah.

An important thing is that there’s new guests, and there aren’t any walks out yet. So you’ll have to play it as you go, including the days themselves.

I’m sure in a short while there’ll be a ton of them made, so hang in there!

The lovely Steph from TwoHappyCats did a little walk just for the chat room times, so if it’ll help you, go here.

Now a thing I’d like to say: I really, really hope Unknown gets a route himself, where he gets repentance and happy because he doesn’t deserve what he went through 😭 Just thinking about it makes me want to cry all over again.

I also hope we get a Rika route where we get to understand and get her the support she needed before everything went bottom up.

Are you happy that V got a route? Would you like an Unknow route too? Or is it someone else, like Vanderwood, that you’d like a route? Have you fallen back on the MM hell, or are you saying nope and refuse to play? Tell me all!

Rooms: The Main Building is a Fun Puzzler While It Lasts

126824_front

 

This is a deceptive game, I got it recced by Anna, a Skype friend, and I liked how it looked, plus it’s a puzzle game, which I quite like. So why is it deceptive? Because it’s highly addicting! I didn’t stop playing until I concluded all of it. Plus though it was a bit hard sometimes, it was never so hard I had to use a guide/walk to pass any of the levels. It also kept introducing new things, so it always felt fun and innovative to play. Though it has some 100 levels, they’re small enough to play a bunch in a row or play one on the go between breaks.

I was quite surprised by Rooms, so I felt I quite had to share my feelings about it.

I’m pretty sure this isn’t very well known (maybe it is, who knows?)  which is a shame for a little puzzle game that was always engaging and fun. One of the things I dislike is when games drag on or raise the difficulty level just to make us burn time, and it never happened in this little game.

So if you want something to entertain you and grip you for a couple hours, this is definitely the game for you!

 

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

Video Game Tag

I got tagged by Matthew here, go check it out and his blog 🙌

I’d never heard or seen this tag, so I’m ecstatic to answer these!

Rules:

  • Thank & Tag the Blogger
  • Answer the Questions
  • Tag Other Bloggers (Your choice on the number of challengers)

Questions:

  • What is your favorite video game genre (I.E. RPG, FPS, MMO, etc.).

Narrative heavy games are my jam. Visual novels, click-and-point/adventure (think Ace Attorney and Monkey Island), Puzzles (think Layton), RPG.

  • Which system do you prefer to game on?

PORTABLES. Vita, PSP, 2DS, yes please, more portables, give me more!!! If Sega came out with a portable, I’d be all over it too 😻😻

  • Who is your favorite video game character?

Uuuuuuh. That’s a really hard one???? 😹 I’ve loved Aeris/th since infancy/6 years old. I tend to like all the characters in games tho, at least the ones we’re supposed to like xP

  • Which game do you believe has the best plot?

Uh. How can I answer that without first playing all the games in existence that are said to have good plot ?? 😹😹 Anything that makes me cry gets my approval, but the only one to have made me cry in happiness was Ghost Trick.

  • What game gave the most hype but didn’t deliver?

Hmmmm, I don’t tend to get too hyped if I haven’t experienced and liked the series/a game tho 😹 I guess Ao Oni, I live streamed it and jumped a lot, but I didn’t feel as scared/screamed like expected, and the story sucked 😹

  • What game are you waiting for?

Oh boy, so many?!! Kingdom hearts 3, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Great Ace Attorney, Danganronpa 3, Zero Escape remastered. Too many tbh haha 😸

  • If you were taken to an island and forced to only play 3 games, which 3 games would you choose?

What?! What kind of horrible person comes up with this question ???? I’d choose none then, I like replaying games when there’s been years in between. Also I feel like I’d be more productive in trying to get OUT if I didn’t have anything to occupy me 😹😹😹😹😹

  • Which games do you feel have the best replay value?

Hmmmm, all games have replay value to me. I prefer visual novels or point and click/adventure because you get to replay without the hassle of grinding. These questions are all about replaying when I don’t really do it much. It took me years, and a Vita port, for me to replay Final Fantasy 10 haha, and I really enjoy that one! Ditto for others I’ve replayed. I usually only replay if it’s part of a series and it’s been years since I’ve played the first ones, then I do it because I’ll get to experience it all in one go 💖

  • Name 1 Game that you think everyone should play?

Just one?! Geesus, let me break the rules real quick and say the following series: Ace attorney, danganronpa, zero escape. Sorry, I’ve been thinking a lot about those games/franchises lately. Also, play Sweet Fuse, that otoge needs more love!

  • What game did you grow up on?

Ooh this is a nice one. I grew up playing final fantasy 7/8/9/10, Shenmue, Sonic Adventure. My Dreamcast was super loved, tho it wasn’t mine but my brother’s :’D

  • Which game would you like to see come back?

Ooooh! Intriguing question, hmm let me think about franchises that are dead/sleeping. Suikoden would be good one. I also want The World Ends With You sequel. Oh and Ghost Trick!!!
I’d love to see more animanga adaptations into games, like Card Captor Sakura and Escaflowne got, and those be brought back would be amazing.

If you don’t see more otome in this list it’s because I still need to play and get deeper into the genre for sure. I haven’t played enough ones for me to really get a feel for what I’d like more.

Nominations:
You. Yes you. You’ve read this, you thought “I’d like to answer these /I’d have answered differently” then do it!! 🙌

From Grouvee

 

Heya there everyone, if you know anything about me it might be that I love tracking websites and I try almost everyone I discover. There’s just something that compels me to see my shelves growing, be it in GoodReads, MyAnimeList, or anywhere else.

For games I’ve done stints with Backloggery, with Gamefaqs, with HowLongToBeat, but I’ve decided that I’m going to stick by Grouvee because they allow me to change username. Also their slogan of “It’s like GoodReads but for games” is up my alley since I love GR! 😀

I’m really unsatisfied and get bored easily, so I tend to change usernames after a few years, and now I’m bored of using “hijackedcat” so I’m changing it and none of the other ones allowed me to change them. On here I’ll keep my Cat Nessa nick, but everywhere else I’m adopting more my current online name which is based on my real name.

Another thing is that it has a database ready, so I don’t have to manually add each game, and they all have covers, so it’s pleasant to look at!

Either way, this is just to say that if you use Grouvee, or have interest in a tracking website for games, then this one is a good one. They’re constantly adding games to their database when people ask them, and you can also add games yourself which is real neat!

Feel free to add me as a friend on GRouvee just click this link.

 

Do you use a tracking website for games or for other things? If yes, which one? I’m curious, so tell me all!
