Oh, give me a home where the game theory roams and where everything is decided through play. If that isn’t a dreadful, yet intended parody of “Home on the Range”, it does at least lend an abstract ideal to the whimsy and focus of No Game No Life.
The spring season might be over and done with for most, but feeling overwhelming with how much I have left to sift through for this current summer, it does help place things in perspective. For one, I didn’t realize how little from spring season I watched and further more, how much of it I actually enjoyed. There were a few, no matter how grating they were that help passed time, but never satisfied me completely. Isshuukan Friends comes closer than any other title of the season and something that comes as a surprise, being close to the last thing I ended the season with and didn’t initially feel to strong about.
Atelier Rorona Plus is a shot at redemption for a franchise title that so desperately wants it, would benefit from it, but not necessarily because it is in need of it. Either way, it is a fine chance for those new to the Arland saga to jump in and veterans to come back to more of the same, if they so desire to.
Slowly, yet surely I am starting to recover from my nauseating bout of writers block and finally might even return to writing editorials soon. For now, I’m very comfortable with reviews and since they are an innumerable list of titles I want to get to – it seems like a favorable course of action. Taking a look the Winter 2014 season, I decided the next review would be on D-Frag, a school life comedy that is sometimes good at making its shenanigans amusing and other times just makes a buffoon out of itself for not being very funny at all. Or something along those lines…
Given that I am on an extensive blogging break this summer due to suffering from crippling writers block and studying for the upcoming exams this fall – I thought I would at least return long enough to compose a post or two starting with reviewing a few games I cleared from my list last month ago. One of which is Demon Gaze, an 1st person dungeon crawling RPG that I had being curious about and probably would of never played if I waited any later.
Underneath Sorcery Saga’s cute and bubbly appearance lurks the heart of a true rougelike that should please both newbies and with some luck, veterans alike.

Behind the thick veneer of otaku culture and preying upon the sensibilities of many an anime fan, Outbreak Company makes for great entertainment and even greater social commentary that only a goofy series like this could possibly provide.
Aside from laying the smackdown upon waves of countless combatants and avoiding (or welcoming) getting garments torn to tatters, Senran Kagura Burst is just another humdrum side-scrolling beat-em-up with nothing notable to offer from the crowd for veterans of the genre, but for others new to the arena, fairly enjoyable if you peer past the repetitive nature and some questionable content.
