Impressions & Commentary: Euphoria Intro

TW: All of them. All of the triggers. Specifically, rape, torture, death, emotional abuse, kidnapping, blackmail, and gaslighting; but really it’s more of an “all of them” kind of deal.

Earthbound | Absolute Terror

I’m sure most of you can tell that these words are not from Euphoria, but I really do not think any quote sums up my first impressions of this game quite as effectively. The battle against Giygas in Earthbound is commonly seen as one of the most emotionally draining and frightening sequences in gaming, but compared to what I saw in the first hour and a half of Euphoria, well… it looks like the battle against Giygas from Earthbound, which is a lot less terrifying than Euphoria.

Quick Review: Lapis Gunner (PC)

Lapis Gunner | Logo

TW: More tentacle rape.

Due to the fact that this game has little in terms of SFW images, I have slightly blurred the screenshots of this game. If you want to see them unblurred, I’d suggest playing the game.

Lapis Gunner is the sequel to Ruby Striker, a short hentai game about a magical girl being tentacle raped by a demonic villain named Zodiac. There was really not all that much to Ruby Striker plot wise as it was purely pornographic material for those into tentacle rape based hentai. Most of the same things that were said about Ruby Striker can be said about Lapis Gunner, although the game overall felt like a step down.

The story of Lapis Gunner takes place after the events of Ruby Striker and focuses on the titular Lapis Gunner, one of Ruby Striker’s allies who came to rescue her. Unfortunately, she got captured by Zodiac as well and awaits a similar fate. From here on out, the game is pretty much the same as Ruby Striker in its structure.

Ruby Striker: Brief but Hardcore Tentacle Action (Eroge Review) (NSFW)

Ruby Striker | Icon

TW: Super Tentacle Hentai Porn (that means tentacle rape, and lot’s of it).

Due to the fact that this game has little in terms of SFW images, I have slightly blurred the screenshots of this game. If you want to see them unblurred, I’d suggest playing the game.

There are generally two types of hentai games; those that take themselves seriously and try to tell an interesting story, and those that just try to be masturbation fuel. Ruby Striker is an example of the latter, and it is a pretty good one at that. As I was reading it, I found myself continually aroused by it and appreciated its creativity and descriptiveness.

It should naturally go without saying that someone who is not into gratuitous tentacle rape should not be playing a game based entirely around it, but some stuff can get a bit on the freaky side and there is some stuff related to pain. As such, those into softer material may be better off elsewhere. Otherwise, the only real flaw is the game’s short length.

My Name Is Addiction: Poetic Horror at its finest (PC)

eighteen days | My Name Is Addiction

There are two more Oprainfall game reviews left after this. Anyway, this is a severely underrated game. It was on Steam Greenlight since about 2012 but never got accepted, which pisses me off considering the kind of garbage that did. I’m pretty sure the problem was that people thought that the premise (a psychological horror visual novel… about pornography addiction) meant it would be another half assed effort along the lines of Depression Quest, and thus that it would be shit. Well I will put it this way; I’ve suffered from suicidal depression my entire life and Depression Quest could not get a serious reaction out of me. Despite what some may think though, I’m hardly a porn addict, as I literally don’t even masturbate. It doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy it, but only in short bursts. That did not stop this game from having a very strong effect on me despite never suffering from any kind of addiction. I would be tempted to say it’s Depression Quest done right (see also, Actual Sunlight).

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Lamia’s Game Room

Lamia's Game Room | Main Image

Lamia’s Game Room was a game released silently within the depth of the now defunct Steam Greenlight. The only way most people would have played it would have been through one of Indiegala’s bundles, which was how I got it. Looking at the game’s Steam page, one will notice that the overall review rating for this game is “mixed” which is a bad sign right away. Another bad sign is the fact that the game is priced at $1.00, which usually means that the game is so short or simplistic that it should be free, but the developers still want to make some money.

Critical Hit: Doesn’t look like yaoi to me (Eroge Review)

Critical Hit logo

Critical Hit is a short eroge visual novel released in 2016 and it is the first game by developer Tsukiware. Despite the game’s short length and low budget, I found it to be quite enjoyable. I will admit that it does not live up to all of its potential, and that its short length and lack of choices make it hard to justify the $10.00 price tag, but I do feel that this game is worth playing for anyone who has a fondness for Dungeons and Dragons and for femboy hentai.

TW: The word “trap” being used to refer to femboys/mtf crossdressers, references to rape and sexual content because this is a hentai game. Read more

School Idol QT Cool: Trap Eroge Done Wrong (Eroge Review)

School Idol QT Cool logo

This is the last Brash Games review of mine that has not been linked here yet. I am partially posting this one for context as I have a review of another trap eroge in the making.

http://www.brashgames.co.uk/2017/02/28/school-idol-qt-cool-review/

This game was… meh. I liked the concept of it, but it was so underutilized and was just used as a backdrop to get character A and character B to fuck. Yes, that may be porn in a nutshell, but no one ever pays for that shit these days. As such, if there’s going to be a price, it better either be VERY good porn or have something else to it, and this game has neither. Granted it is not a terrible game by any means and it will be satisfying if that’s what you are looking for, but it’s not going to impress anyone.

I will say that I’m glad I got the chance to review it though, as it’s a game that I got a small amount of enjoyment out of, but not nearly enough that I would consider it worth paying $15.00 for.

If you are interested in purchasing this game, it can be bought on MangaGamer.com (here) or on Nutaku (here). BOTH LINKS ARE NSFW!

(Closed) Guardian Acorn July 2017 Givaway: Highschool Romance

Highschool Romance | Logo

Update: It’s over now, you were too late, although you can still claim the Lethal League code if you want.

Update: It now only costs $1.00 for a chance to win. Additionally, both of my two current patrons have declined my code for Lethal League, so I’m giving it to the first person who asks. My review can be read here.

For those who may have glossed over it in my Patreon rewards section, I am giving away a free Steam code each month to a select Patron of mine who has pledged $3.00 or more. I figure that it is hard to beat the allure of giving away free shit, you know, the Bernie Sanders method… (I’m joking, I actually voted for Bernie). So the first code being given away is for Highschool Romance, a fairly entertaining “Male MC gets put into an all girls school and needs to crossdress, which leads to pseudo lesbian antics” visual novel. Although it’s not an eroge so don’t get your hopes up there.

(Outdated) The Guardian Acorn Steam Summer Sale Recommendations

Steam Sale | Capitalism Ho!

Update: Sales over guys.

Steam is at it again with their infamous sales that extend to a majority of their catalogue. However, given how vast this catalogue is, how will one know where to look? That’s what I am here for; to provide my readers with a list of recommended games for purchase along with their sale price. Additionally, there will be Amazon links in place of direct Steam links when possible cause I gotta make some money somehow, but they will only be there if the code costs the same on Amazon as it does on Steam (IE is also discounted). Anyway, let’s begin.

Detailed Review: Kindred Spirits on the Roof (PC)

Kindred Spirits on the Roof | Roof

The 2nd to last Brash Games review left to put up. I will say, getting the chance to play this game, in and of itself, made writing for Brash Games worth it for me, as I likely would not have touched it otherwise. It is also the second most detailed review of mine on the site next to NieR Automata.

If you are interested in playing this game for yourself (which you should be) it can be purchased here (Download) or here (Limited Edition Hardcopy)
