One of the things I like doing most on this blog is writing reviews for the titles I enjoyed or ended up disappointing me greatly despite my initial expectations.
What exactly do I write about and how are my reviews usually structured?
I always try to be extremely honest with all my considerations, positive and negative. In my reviews I also add a fairly detailed description of the product, from the plot to the overall visual aspect, without fully revealing how it ends (unless the game I’m writing about is particularly old) nor reporting every single event from the story.
I want you as the reader to get involved in what I post and eventually decide if that specific game will satisfy your tastes or not.
Since this blog is mainly focused on PC related video games and stuff, every review is based on titles I own on Steam, Uplay, etc.
I try to stay up to date with new releases, but fail to play everything at once because of life getting in the way.
Reviews will also include specific accessories or devices.
What are Visual Novels?
Visual novels are generally called Otome and they are known for including interactive dialogues with choices, routes and different endings. Otome games are technically made for a female audience (the Reader will basically be the protagonist falling in love with a character of choice through a first person narrative), but they also include thrilling events that can go well beyond the simple “boyfriend simulation”.
I’ve never been particularly fond of Otome novels until my best friend suggested me to try out one on my phone. I loved playing it so much that I started to take a look around for more alternatives and my research definitely paid off.
Although Otome games are mostly available as apps for mobile (there are some on Steam like Amnesia: Memories or Dandelion), you can also play them on PC with any Android simulator as long as you can connect it to a legit Google Play account for in-app purchases.
