Quick Review: Demon King Domination (PC) (NSFW)

CW: Discussion of sexual content. Has passing references to rape and slavery pertaining to sexual content. Lewd images are pixelated for the purposes of this review, and are uncensored in-game.

I did not initially plan to review three hentai games in a row, but I couldn’t help but become curious when a mutual of mine gifted me this game on Steam. It also helps that this is a fairly short game, and thus won’t prompt another 2000+ word review. Demon King Domination comes to us from Belgerum, a small team making English language nukige. Demon King Domination is a brief visual novel set in the world of a typical JRPG/fantasy series. The game mostly takes place during the climactic showdown between the warrior Princess Dianne, and the Demon King Malos. In true hentai fashion, you are playing as the Demon King himself, and each ending involves turning Princess Dianne into your slave.

Nukige Septic Tank: Slave Witch April (NSFW)

CW: Rape, pedophilia, bestiality misogyny, torture, sexual slavery. Yep, it’s one of those games! Lewd images are censored for the purpose of this review, and are not censored in-game.

I’m having trouble thinking of a way to lead into this review like I normally do, so I’m just going to get straight to the point. Slave Witch April is an utterly repugnant pile of garbage that makes my skin crawl. Since I completed it, I’ve been pondering whether or not I consider it the worst eroge I’ve ever played. I have come to the conclusion that it’s not only the worst eroge I’ve ever played, but that it’s also the worst game I’ve ever played. About a month ago, I reviewed Games&Girls, a train wreck of an ecchi title that devolved into pandering to literal Nazis in a pathetic plea for attention, only to not have the testicular fortitude to even admit it when I confronted the developers about it. Yet Slave Witch April practically has me yearning for the works of Yume Creations.

Amazing VGM: Prince Ferdinand Themes (Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure)

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Today, as in the day this is being posted, is a very special day where we commemorate the execution and martyrdom of Saint Valentine by taking each other on expensive dates and giving each other cards with candy if we are still kids… or by wallowing in our own misery if we are single. Don’t give up hope though, I’m sure you’ll find love someday as long as you don’t make anti-SJW videos on Youtube!

As for myself, as silly and ironic as it would be to post my Slave Witch April review on Valentines Day, I’d like to take this chance to talk about a game near and dear to my heart. I really want to get around to replaying Rhapsody and giving it a full review, but I figure today is the perfect chance to talk about its beautiful music, and you better be damn sure the soundtrack is amazing with a title like that. It did not disappoint.

Futa Fix Dick Dine and Dash (PC): A Pleasant Surprise (Detailed Review) (NSFW)

CW: Sexual content, discussion of trans fetishism.

One can’t help but be curious with a title like that, can they? It’s certainly fun to say, and it’s the kind of title that would certainly get you some funny looks when your Steam account tells your friends that you are playing it… not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. I point out this title because it’s something that certainly catches one’s eye, and I think that at least contributed slightly to this game’s high sales figures.

Yes, you read that correctly. One to the top selling games in December of 2020 was Futa Fix Dick Dine and Dash, listed alongside Red Dead Online, Dragon Quest XI S, and Cyberpunk 2077. It is worth mentioning that Futa Fix is a western developed visual novel. Futa Fix is the first game developed by Cyberframe studios, a hentai animation studio working with publishers Kupaa Studios and Critical Bliss, both of whom also specialize in nukige.

Personal Site Update

Site Progress & Personal Update: February 2021 (Angry Venting Edition)

Well guys… it’s certainly another month alright. I actually don’t know anything interesting to say, so I guess I’ll just ramble about nothing for this site update piece. Chronic fatigue is still a bitch, and I still hate how it takes me 2 hours to shave my face each day, yet I feel exhausted until I go do that. But thankfully, my dad has told me that he will pay for my laser hair removal, and my sister has also contributed some money towards that. Apparently the process as a whole may take a while, but I am certainly looking forward to not waking up each morning feeling like I have tons of parasites on my face.

A lot of cis people really have no clue what the fuck gender dysphoria feels like, and giving a literal explanation never really helps, so I’ll just say something to paint a picture. Imagine that gross, depressed feeling that you have when you don’t take a shower for a few days… now imagine what that feels like if you never showered or bathed your entire life! That’s what gender dysphoria feels like without taking into account all the hate and discrimination that comes from cis people being assholes.

Celeste (PC/PS4/XONE/Switch/Stadia): A Steep, Treacherous, and Beautiful Climb (Detailed Review)

And here we have yet another overdue review that I have been planning to get for quite some time. Specifically, this review was requested by former patron Winter. While they have since canceled their pledge due to financial difficulties, they were the first patron of mine to meet the current requirements for a review request, which require someone to be a patron for more than six months and contribute at least $120 total. Yes, this is a steep requirement, but it also ensures that those who are supporting me are doing so because they either really care about me or my content. Also I have tendency to take a long time getting to requested reviews, but I do plan to honor these commitments even when a patron in question is also an abusive ex (no, that’s not Winter, but that is the case with another patron).

As for what my excuse for taking so long this time is, it’s that I had initially tried to play the Steam version of Celeste several months ago (which Winter also gifted me because they are a total sweetheart), but I had some issues with the controls that made the game virtually unplayable to me. Specifically, I had this problem where, when using a PS3 controller, the game would just stop reading my button inputs for a second every other minute. While 1 second doesn’t sound like much, Celeste IS a platformer that requires split second timing and accuracy.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4/XONE/Switch/PC): A Highly N. Tertaining Trilogy (Detailed Review)

I can safely say that, prior to 2017, I assumed the Crash Bandicoot series was as good as dead. Despite not having been relevant since the PS1 era, it was able to stay barely afloat until 2010, with the last console based installment being Crash: Mind Over Mutant. Despite the fact that I haven’t talked about it much, I have played the crap out of the PS1 games (2 and 3 at least) when I was a child, but I hadn’t touched them in so long that the remakes were basically a new experience for me. Not to mention that I had never even played the original game.

Crash Bandicoot was one of the biggest names during the PS1 era, yet when it fell off, it didn’t even fall off in the same way as Sonic the Hedgehog where every installment still got a lot of hype and sold a lot even though the games were hit and miss. It’s more so along the lines of people just stopped paying attention to the series, so we wouldn’t even know if any of the post PS1 releases were any good. I mean, I did enjoy Crash Nitro Kart, and I heard Crash Twinsanity was pretty fun, but the other two post PS1 Crash games I played were Tag Team Racing and Crash of the Titans, both of which sucked. Crash of the Titans was especially moronic in that it turned a platformer series into a beat em up so boring that it makes Sonic Unleashed’s night time stages look like they ACTUALLY came from God of War.

Amazing VGM: Smiles & Tears (EarthBound)

Another years has come to a close, and It is time for me to end this year the same way as I usually do, with a highly emotional ending theme from one of my favorite games of all time. EarthBound holds a near and dear place in my heart, and I can’t help but become super emotional whenever I listen to its music or play it. Hell just speaking about it now makes me want to replay it.

And it is also quite appropriate since 2020 was a highly emotional year. It’s been kind of a meme about how much this year has sucked, but it did end on a positive note with Trump losing re-election. And yes, that doesn’t mean all of our problems are gone, but after four years of this asshole, it’s a relief to see him go the fuck away. And maybe things will start to get at least a little bit better.

Games&Girls (PC): An Embarrassing Train Wreck (Detailed Review)

CW: Mentions of Nazism, pedophilia, incest, antisemitism, and kidnapping

It seems as if the games I play are constantly trying to push the envelope for different ways to be absolutely fucking awful. I am at the point where if someone asked me the worst game I ever played, I’d ask what criteria they are basing them on. I could go with the game that was so disgusting and scarring that it made me suicidal, I could go with the no-budget “experimental” game that included real life gore in it, I could go with the RPG Maker game with no battles, levels, dialogue, or ending, or I could go with the game that required you to manually rename the game’s exe file to even play it.

Games&Girls is now among those games as “the visual novel that I almost didn’t review because I didn’t think I could review it without insulting the developer.” And even approaching this review is difficult because I’m not sure if I should do what I usually do and start describing the story, writing, presentation, or open with the fact that the 4th episode has you trying to seduce a fucking Nazi?
