Timepiece Ensemble didn't even have that many music tracks. They even reused some from 1/2 summer

Different companies , yes.
But Timepiece Ensemble and 1/2 summer have the same composer (Ookawa Shigenobu), the same main writer (1/2 summer had Wakase Ryou ,while TE has Wakase Ryou and Ririri as the writers) and same artist (Sesena Yau)

edit: while on the subject of Timepiece Ensemble, i liked it overall more than 1/2 summer. The story was better (especially Nanami's route had a surpisingly good final act) aside from the somewhat shoehorned in Kuroha and Tetmet showing up as too many times as the deus machina in some routes and the horrendous route that Sasa had
My complaint about is that the system feels rushed and unfinished (no titlescreen, the CG , scene and music modes are at the top right corner of the screen) and some bugs (which were probably fixed in 1.01 but i read through the unpatched 1.00 version). And I really didn't like Sasa's story and the worst thing is that i read her story first because by picking the Nanami choices without clearing the other routes, you will end up in Sasa's route

Yeah, Nanami's route final conclusion was done quite well. I'm also quite happy that Kuroha added her little extra service at the very end (when her words appeared in the sky) so that the last CG could happen.
Yes, I need that kind of sweetness instead of only a "greater good > personal happiness" conclusion

A few hours till the reveal of the new Empress game website. :>

EDIT: Yeeesss! It's finally here! Girls are looking gorgeous as expected. Somehow I feel they're doing a more friendly game this time (i.e. less extreme fetishes) so more can enjoy it, perhaps...

Just started (really just started) Hoshizora no Memoria. All I can say so far is that the imouto is so incredibly energetic that I kind of love her already despite thinking how annoying it would be having to deal with her on a daily basis... It's an odd feeling. "Man, I wouldn't be able to stand this girl in real life, but I find that rather loveable here."

I find it hilarious somehow. I would hate it if she was doing it to me, but in the game the way she's always so energetic about it just makes me laugh.

I played the trial of MeltyMoment by hooksoft.

And I have to say that their titles really fluctuate in terms of being fun (for my standards) or at leat I can't get come to terms with their humor of the MC either getting into silly misunderstanding, talks "sweetly" so that other girls misunderstand or does something embarassing and reaps the resigned stares of his harem. The bgm that playes during it sounds like circus music when the clowns appear *lol*. This kind of humor/joke is fine if used sparingly, but throwing it at my face in what seems like every second scene (based on my guts instinct), has deepened my friendship with the ctrl-key =/.
Then again except maybe LovelyQuest most of hooksofts common routes were either boring or due to the humor "stupid", thus promoting ctrl-abuse in my case. So far I played mostly for the chara-route icha-icha .

And because I love to repeat it, I d o. n o t. l i k e. comedy based on that horrible trait of the MC being equally horrible at school .

Started playing the latest lump of sugar title. Renri, the MC, feels a bit strange, though. How to put it, as if he's lacking of showing (much) emotions or as if he's just responding to the emotions of others. He's still the gentle, kind and caring guy, but outside of it it's the before-mentioned. Maybe it's some kind of plot point considering the mystery of the world.

So about 7-8 years ago I played Sexy Beach 3 from Illusion, which was a harmless fun game that I suppose was essential DOA Extreme Beach Volleyball, without the volleyball, other activities, and barely-there swimwear, but with the ero that DOAX lacked. (Certainly it was a welcome change in tone and pace from Illusion's infamous previous game.) Cleared the whole game without actually understanding what was going on. So, decided I'd try it out again, since it now has a full English translation.

...somehow, despite running it on a rig that can play Crysis and Skyrim in Ultra, it doesn't seem to look significantly better than the last time I played it? Though it does seem to run a lot smoother than on my laptop.

Anyway, thoughts... Eo's route, which I'm going through first, apparently takes place after A-GA. It's kinda funny in that she appoints you the commander of the finance squadron and then mooches off you. Ah, well.

Of course, one "disadvantage" of starting anew from a full game is that I now have seven girls to clear, as opposed to clearing 5 girls from June-December 2006, and then two more girls from December 2006-January 2007. Ah well, here's to unlocking everything. Again.

It's funny though. I think the iPad would make a great platform for VNs, ero and non, due to how you mostly keep clicking to go forward. Yet nobody seems keen on porting to the iPad... unless, like Sony, Apple has a no-ero policy I'm not aware of.

They definitely have a no-ero policy for anything in the App Store. Even the Google Play store won't allow a lot of things, but the ability to sideload applications and otherwise install apps from unofficial sources bypasses this issue on that Platform.

That explains it. I was hoping it wasn't the case, but considering the wide userbase of the iPad... yeah, I can see where Apple might want to sidestep that potential controversy.

Another argument for getting an Android tablet - or at least jailbreaking my iPad, I guess.

Still, this is one of the sillier points in the whole PC vs Console debate. "Buy PC so that you can play eroge!" Not a very compelling argument - and not one I'd want to make in real life!

There are eroges on the android, but those are very few and are handled by companies using their own kind of apps. (plus the majority of the ported games are nukiges)
However , there are all ages ports of older eroges and some slightly more recent games (like Sinclient, Monobeno, Natsu no Owari no Nirvana and Sakura, Sakimashita, Shinigami no Testament) on the google market released by moeapp, eventhough some of the more recent titles are just trials

Man, Yume's route in Hoshizora no Memoria is hard on the heart. Like they had a contest going: "How many times can we make it look like things are about to turn around, and then suddenly hit you with another tearjerker?!"

I'm not sure I even want to try doing Mare's route after going through all that...

So~ another german-time nightly impression featuring Sekai to Sekai no Mannaka de.
3/4 routes done.
Let's begin with the bad; short and swiftly:
- The way the happy ending was achieved. Minori and Kokoro's achieval of happy end felt unfortunately rather unexplained, maybe somewhat artificial.
(- if you have seen one route, the secret of the world is to a degree already known, except the exact role of someone)

The good:
- The romance: Aira and Kokoro's were extremly lovely and "awwww". Renri's rather lack of emotion (which actually has a reason) during Minori's lessend it somewhat
- Aira's route: The complete package without the stuff mentioned in the previous section was much to my liking. The moments leading to the confession and Renri's actual display of more emotions/expressions made her route maybe the strongest of the three
- The drama/serious moment conclusion was for me touching, which counts as a plus in my book of drama traumas
- I enjoyed the theme of distance between humans during Haruka's route and how it was used to increase the closeness between the two

The average:
- Aira's past was within the supernatural in-verse too strange. And her epilogue (as in the scene post credit roll) was for me a big question mark
- Kokoro's route outside of the romance was actually a stark contrast of the others. The secret of the world (maybe also just one part of it?) was revealed much earlier which lead to uhm ... unexpected events for some of the other cast (depending which route was played first, that is) + the way Renri and she became conscious of each other was due to this contrast a bit forcefully done.
- Haruka's past was fine by itself, but her existance during it wasn't really what I expected *lol*

Fav. route order: Aira > Kokoro = Haruka >= Minori

@MeltyMoments: Out of all heroines, Natsuki is definitely the most loli-related/childish? (Takeru is only called a lolicon during misunderstandings concerning her), but her character development during her early two chapters was great. Because it happened also outside of the romance perspective.

I finished the latest game from Minori 12 no Tsuki no Eve last week and i wanted to like it , but i could not like it because of the main story


The story is about Naoto and his 2 childhood friends: the elder sister Mizuka , the younger sister Anzu and the mysterious transferstudent Yuki. The game has no choices but it actually has 3 stories

edit: warning my writing is terrible and monotonous though


First one is that you have to play is Mizuka.
Spoiler for summary Mizuka's story:



I am keeping this one short because her story was fairly standard and while not bad, it was not that great either
Spoiler for Anzu:


And the final story was about the actual true heroine Yuki and while i did like her character, her story was a huge mess

Spoiler for Yuki:

Fav. route order: Aira > Kokoro = Haruka >= Minori
So far I've finished Aira's route first and Haruka's route second and I'm currently on Minori's route.

Aira sure pulls my heartstrings... It was just so tremendously cute that it had me with a huge smile most of the time before the first H scene started. After that, the story felt a bit rushed and confusing. One thing I really like about this pairing is that from the very beginning, Aira and Renri already get along as if they were already a couple, which was commented on humorously. I agree with you that her ending is just one big question mark. Just how is that stuff even happening? Sure we can infer, but some detail would be nice...

For some reason, I went though Haruka's route really fast, is it shorter than the rest of the stories? I really like how Haruka teases Renri and the rest of the gang go along with it and insert their jabs. For me, her story wasn't very interesting, but the humor in it was very nice. The tail on the face really had me laughing.

So far Minori's route is quite funny, just got a little bit past the confession scene and the antics which come after that. I wasn't too sure if I would like her character since there is not much to go on from the common route, but her dere side sure is making me like her a lot. Still wouldn't pick her over Aira though.

Another month, another buch of (latest) impressions:
Koishiki Manual: I liked what I saw from the trial version and the real deal kept the comedy during the common route, which is definitely a good thing to me. Once the VN moves to the individual routes, it may get more boring and one confession is rather forgettable. I only finished Aki's route, but overall liked it. She's a "sports/tennis idiot" who's maybe even more dense than most average MCs
Spoiler for Aki's character description + route:
. Oh yeah, gimme a Rio route NAO!.

Koi suru Kimochi no Hanakotoba: Uhm, rather normal. One route may be the closest to a sorta-harem route based on the CGs. Female cast is nice and 3/4 of them have terrible grades *lol*. So yeah, I'd suggest it only if you want something veeeery ordinary.

Shin Koihime Musou: Not a new title, but nontheless. I shed tears during the early part of the Go faction route due to the tragic fate of an important character. And although Kazuto had more of a harem building function in it, he was more useful than during Gi faction's route (hello @yuri moments...). The latter was mostly worth it thanks to Sousou/Karin. Rather unfortunate that she didn't get quite a her personal happy end =/. Oh, and I absolutely disliked Keifa. Simply bloody annoying in all regards

Edit:
Innocent Girl: I've never seen so many shimo neta used before. No, it's like 10x more extrem than the usual pervy MC during the whole common route. Honestly, there wre quite a few times where I was somewhat disgusted with that kind of sex talk. BUT, then comes the individual routes with beautiful highlights* like Kagari or Hinako's lovely confession that made me glad to have continued the VN.

*highlights in regards to my playing style of reading up to each confession scene before deciding which route to finish. In contrast to my "old" way of picking one route until the end before moving to the next one.
