Hello. Zelrune’s profile
I have one aquarium with a very large fish in it. I didn’t expect him to get so big… Or live so long. Sheeshh. (50g Brackish - Violet Goby.)
Haha I’ve added 11 games from the steam sale onto my backlog, I’m now at 299 games. I forgot the summer sale was a thing and I was completely blindsided!!! ahhh more stuff to do. ;w;
Flower is a relaxing and peaceful experience in which you play as the wind. You collect petals and bring beauty into an otherwise bleak and grey world. Playtime ranges from 2–6 hours and there are some bugs to be noted but nothing game-breaking.
When entering another dream (level.) Sound may be unavailable. This is fixed with a simple restart. Sometimes when you are flying you get stuck after interacting with things, this can be fixed by accelerating or changing directions.
All in all this is a very wholesome and tranquil game and I do recommend it.
Our world has not decayed
“Our world has not decayed” Is a surprisingly wholesome game that’s very bittersweet. You are Coru! An Adventurer who somehow survived the end of the world. While looking for more people and trying to figure out what happened exactly to make the world end, you find Nasu instead! She has amnesia! She is also a zombie! Both of you set off together to find more people and bring Nasu home!
Having Chinese voice acting instead of Japanese is a bit unusual for me but it quickly grew on me. This VN is more like a story than anything, seeing as you only really have 2-3 choices in the entire game. This story can be finished in 2.5-5 hours.
The English translation is truly terrible! However, if you are a native English speaker or you feel confident in your skills, it’s not really any trouble. Some confusion here or there but you have a general understanding of what’s going on.
The Orchard of Stray Sheep
You play as the protagonist Ichirou! You are hired as a teacher to teach at an amazing Island academy with only 4 students! You work with the beautiful principle Matsuri and two other teachers, Liang and Tsuji, to keep the students happy at all costs!
The four students are Peeler, Mincer, Oros zester and your own assigned student, Casserole! It is your duty to make sure that Casserole is ready for her ‘graduation’ from the academy! Will you really be able to do it, though?
The Orchard of Stray Sheep is a surprisingly dark and yet incredibly interesting kinetic novel. I say Kinetic, but there are only 3 choices that lead to 3 endings, 2 bad endings and 1 true ending, and it’s kind of obvious what the bad choices are. The art style is phenomenal and the music is just exceptional! The only downside is that there is no sequel!
Fox Hime Zero
Fox Hime Zero is the story of a boy named Yan who is sent into the forest to live there for a year and collect data and specimens on the flora and fauna in the mountain. On his first week, he finds and rescues a fox who has fallen into the river. Later the fox returns, but instead of being a fox she has transformed into a beautiful and mysterious girl named Mori!
As lovely as the art is, I can’t really recommend it. It’s cute, but there is no real plot, no story, and the MC Yan is kind of creepy. He keeps “accidently” touching her and he kisses her on accident which leads to an incredibly uncomfortable make out session. As the story goes on, he get’s incredibly obsessive of her and abandons his work to be with her.
No story, no plot, just two cute characters and a creepy MC. I recommend you skip.
My May report~
Finished one of my biggest games in my backlog, which i’m pretty pleased with myself about. I need to reorganize what games I need to do next though because I looked at my list and quite frankly I kinda feel overwhelmed.
Welp, I say I did pretty bad this April. Added a bunch of fun looking games to my game list (rip, backlog?) and only finished 2.
I did managed to edit that massive fanfic though I mentioned in my previous post. Pleased to announce I kept a log of all my edits that I made, and it turned out to be 31 pages long. and took me a month. Nailed it.
ANYWAY, here is the thing you came to read!
Thanks to the quarantine i’ve gotten a bit more done before the end of the month, look at me; being productive. Also somehow I ended up agreeing to edit a 125,000 word fanfic. 3 chapters down, 41 to go.
Been 6 months since I posted something, here is just some stuff I finished in the meantime. Click on the boxes for the review, thank you and have a good day!
I somehow got Sunrider Academy in 2016. I don’t know where and I don’t know why. I set it on the backburner until my group picked the game out for me to play it. When I realized most the game was garbage it was too late for me to toss it, and since I’ve already gotten most of the achievements my pride as a completionist could not let me set it aside.
Before we begin, I would like to mention this game has cheats, such as achievement.grant(“X”). If you plan on getting all the achievements, I recommend you use this command to skip one of the routes. I wish I did. This game also features an 18+ patch for steam should you choose to do so.
I picked my routes based on how much of a first impression I had of the characters; saving the best for last. Asaga > Ava > Sola > Chigara.
Asaga – A huge perverted moron, who somehow against all odds, never managed to get kicked out of school. There was nothing remarkable or anything even worth mentioning about her route other than in the beginning it was a bit enjoyable, and snowballed down from there. Her route, without spoiling the story, was incredibly annoying to finish and at the end I was thanking a god I don’t believe in that it was over. I would like to mention that she has an exhibitionist streak a mile wide and the entire time I was very uncomfortable.
Ava – At first your opinion of the Student Council president is very high and she is very much likeable, until the very. Moment. You. Start. Her. Route. The entire time she is very frigid toward you and hostile. She treats everyone like slave labor and eight months in you still feel like nothing has changed at all. She is very bullheaded and difficult to work with, and I ended up hating her more than Asaga. She goes out of her way to ruin everyone’s mood and to run them into the ground. (including herself because on top of being a gigantic *** she has huge self-esteem issues.) She is incredibly Bipolar and I am most certain that she is a closet sadist.
I would also like to mention that this route has family violence, which FOR SOME REASON, the developers just brushed off. This is 100% not ok. Ava’s father ties her up (literally.) and it is strongly implied that he beats her regularly. And at the end of the game, I kid you not, the MC says “I guess he wasn’t a bad guy after all!” I STRONGLY suggest skipping Ava’s route.
Sola – Her route was strangely unremarkable. While there were some interesting factors that made it more fun playing (compared to the last two.) I couldn’t help but feel like it was incomplete. Most of her route was shadowing what happened in the original game (Sunrider Liberation Day; SR Academy is a spinoff.) and it felt like I was encouraged mostly into trying that game, rather than playing her route. In short – it felt like an advertisement.
Chigara – The best route in the game. I can say with 100% confidence that not only did her route have the most content, it was also the most rewarding playthrough in the entire game. While she is unusually shy, her reactions were relatively normal and sane compared to the last three routes. While it did get a bit bumpy around month 7-8, It was much more fulfilling than all the previous endings combined.
Ending thoughts: I would not recommend this game. Compared to other visual novels out there this one is garbage. It’s insensitive and in some cases, extreme. Only one route was worth playing out of the four available, and while this is a spinoff of the original game, is very disappointing. I do intend to play the original game but using this as an experience, I have a feeling it will not be enjoyable.
This is my first post all year and I will try to be more active on BLAEO. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day.
So it’s been two months since my last post. Black Desert kinda took up a lot of my time. Just a bit.
Anyway lets get on with the show.
A very lovely story. In this novel, you walk around and interact with objects and recover various pieces of information from desktops and from data left behind. Find out what happened to the Tacoma crew, and it’s AI, Odin.
I really enjoyed the whole story. It takes around 2 hours to complete, and you can get all the achievements in one run. The characters were interesting, and I am very, very happy on how it ended. You should seriously play it.
By the way, the intro song is “Find me” by Szjerdene. Your welcome.
2.) Sparkle 3:Genesis
This game is absolute garbage.
If your just playing for whatever and not achievements, go for it. It takes about 20 minutes to finish the game. 8 - 12 hours for all achievements. Achievement hunters - Beware.
1.) You can kill the leviathan from day 1 without upgrading. Upgrading your status does not make you faster, stronger, increase absorption range or speed. The only reason you would waste your time putting points in is for the four achievements. They literally do nothing.
2.) I have actively tried to kill myself. You cannot die in this game, at all. This makes all fights pointless.
3.) The tutorial is annoying. For some achievements, you need to make a completely red, blue or green sparkle. Problem is, you may need to repeat the tutorial 10 times to get 3 of the same colors. I often ended up with 2/2/2.
4.) You cannot make this game completely mute from in-game. You can set the volume to 0% and it still makes noise, you need to minimize the game and go to your volume settings to mute it.
5.) the music is mediocre, forgettable, and non-existent. I suggest muting it and using a playlist.
6.) When you go through a vortex to go to the next area, you need to fight with it because even when you use the wheel to move down a level, it may move up one so your in this annoying back and forth war every level.
7.) once you complete a quest, you cannot re-do it. This means for the absorption competition you need to completely restart the game to get the like a boss achievement. On the bar it should tell you the percentages so you can end the game early instead of completely resetting it and re-starting with a new character.
8.) the labyrinths are annoying. They are not fun, just annoying and stressful and when you need to repeat them constantly to get a chance at the absorption competition it’s just migraine inducing.
9.) The sparkles get WAY TOO BIG. Once they hit max level they literally take up half the screen. Good luck trying to get through a labyrinth or looking at your mini-map. It should be set so when you level you zoom out or something.
10.) While green is the easiest to move in the labyrinths, have fun trying to kill the leviathan with it. It’s too slow and doesn’t have the range to get the orbs on the tail-end of it. I gave up after 13 minutes. On a side note… blue is absolutely the way to go if you want to beat the leviathan in less than 2 minutes.
EDIT: I completely forgot to mention that I’m looking for people to add to my WL on Steamgifts. If you actually play the games you win and not a card idler.
1.) fault - milestone one
This, this was pretty good. The intro was nice and everything was just really well done. The characters had their own personality, and they were likable and intriguing. The story is pretty good and interesting, the music was wonderful. It took me about 3 hours to finish up, but it was fun.
2.) fault - milestone two side:above
This was hands down the best visual novel I have played. The beginning got me so EXCITED, as it showed me the best, and I do mean the BEST, “breaking the fourth wall moment” I thought possible. I didn’t even know a game could DO that, and I was just really excited. There are supposedly two more novels coming out to finish up the series, “Silence the Pendant” and “Fault: Side Below” and I am eager to get my hands on them. I also liked the second novel for the same reasons as the first.
Oh my god, this game is absolutely stunning. The art, is BEYOND lovely, and I enjoyed most of the characters as well. The story was pretty dang good, and It was a enjoyable experience. The only faults I have with it are a few things. One, you cant save. If you need to restart, you need to redo the entire chapter. I did this and it broke the game for me, as two chapters went together in the same scene and it was a huge confusing mess and I ended up deleting that file. Second, the achievements. I don’t know how on earth people got three particular achievements, but I just cannot get them, period. One you need to play through the entire game without skipping a text, which I’m pretty sure I did, twice. and the other two are to not use the hint tool, which I’m also certain I did, twice. and the other is to skip every mini game, in which I cannot for the life of me find the skip button. I even watched others play for a walk through, and I see the skip button show up on their screen, but I cant find it on mine on the exact same scenes. So I finished the game three times, but I cannot get those last three achievements, which breaks my heart as I still feel it’s incomplete. Apparently you can go into the save file whatever that means and get the achievements that way, but I haven’t ever done that before and I have no idea where to do that. (If you know how to do it please tell me.)
Other than that, it was a great game. But please, please follow a guide unless you want to replay the game four times.
finishes three games. Adds three games to my library. Screams internally.
I was skeptical at first about this game, first few seconds of the video looked so boring I almost skipped over it. The overwhelmingly positive reviews changed my mind. It was on sale, so I thought, Why not.
This was surprisingly enjoyable. You are a customs agent of sorts, you deny or grant people entry to your country depending on their papers, or if you just feel like it. There are 20 endings to the game, and I played through most of them. You can join an organization dedicated to eliminating evils and corruption, help a friend with their drug trade, or be a good citizen and do your job. I also liked all the small story’s you could find. There are a wide variety of people you would meet, and I quite enjoyed them. My favorite one is the guy who gives you the blue note. I usually let him pass. I liked Jorji Costava a lot, I think him and Sergiu were my favorites.
Anyway, it’s a fun little game, and you should seriously consider playing it. I’m really glad I bought it.
Glory to Arstotzka!
1.) WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01
This one was ok. The first one focused more around the storyline and the characters, and the ending made me want to throw my coffee machine out the window. Do not play this if you have no intention of playing 1, 2, and 3. WEE basically explains the stock market, a bunch of technical terms and i kinda skipped through most of it because my math is crap. Words cannot really explain how I feel about this VN, but numbers can. 6/10
2.)WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.02
This one was more enjoyable for the first, because it finally focused more on the characters and their character growth than the storyline. I’m annoyed they changed some of the characters names from the first one, but whatever. Still skipped a bunch past technical terms and more stock market talk, as staring at the explanation for 5 minutes didn’t help me at all. The ending left me with question marks over my head. 6.5/10
3.)WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.03
Oh boy do I have words for this one. I liked this one, the ending was wrapped up in a pretty bow, and most of the loose ends were tied up. The things that I didn’t understand about the ending in 2 were explained in the beginning of 3, and some other things came to light. Story was well written, and it was a good ending to the series. I didn’t really like Hal’s choice of romantic partner at the end, but that’s a story for another time. 7/10
**Major spoilers: **** **Major spoilers: ******Major spoilers: ******Major spoilers: ******Major spoilers: ****
Another time: FIRST OF ALL WHAT EVEN. Hal chose HAGANA over EVERYONE? for ** SAKE SHE HAD PRACTICALLY NO INVOLVEMENT OUTSIDE THE FIRST EPISODE. she just kinda shows up at the end to remind people that she still exists. He had like two other chicks that has more emotional depth than her. Take Chris for example, shes ADORABLE. Yeah, she loves money a little too much, but honestly who doesn’t? She grew up so much and unlike Hagana, who has the emotional depth of a toaster, Chris actually never ran away and stayed next to Hal for a little over 5 or something years. and how can Hal still be crushing on Hagana anyway? It’s been 8 years! He never really tried to find her! He gave up looking for her in 2 in favor of money making schemes, and suddenly she shows up in 3 and hes like “ I NEVER STOPPED LOOKING FOR YOU! I NEVER FORGOT YOU!” like give it a REST dude! Even blond whats her face was sweeter! and the ending credits showed Hagana and Hal getting married like “yeah, that happened.” Honestly there is another huge reason I hate her, (and I do mean HUGE. ) but i’m not even going to mention it as that would ruin the whole series, but DROP HER. SHES NUTS. Honestly the whole rating would have gone up if Hal found out she died or something while on Earth, because that “romantic ending” was *****!!
