[Game] Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz DEMO

ダイダロス:ジ・アウェイクニング・オブ・ゴールデンジャズ | Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz

Publisher: Arc System Works

Developer: Neilo

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC (Steam)

Category: Adventure

Release Date: May 23, 2019

Official Site: EN

Summary from the Nintendo page:

That was one month ago today.

Someone has murdered Saburo’s grandfather, Kyosuke, while he was living in New York.

Saburo sets off to New York to sort through the belongings and memories his grandfather left behind.

The nostalgia of the cityscape and reunions with old friends is fleeting, however.

He soon discovers that his grandfather’s last word was, ‘Daedalus.’

What does it mean?

Why was my grandfather killed?

“Remember, Saburo: tend the orchard of your mind.”

Kyosuke’s words and teachings on the art of thinking are just distant memories.

And yet, young Jinguji Saburo who is alone in the world, takes up the gauntlet for himself and for his late grandfather!

First things first, this post is for the demo of Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz, which I’ll be referring to throughout the post as Daedalus because gosh, the title is a mouthful lol.

Daedalus is released this year with a price of $39.99. I’ve seen its VNDB page and is surprised to know that the length of the game is only about 2-10 hours long. On How Long to Beat website, it is 6 ½ hours — granted that this is from 1 user alone. I thought the full game would be pretty long especially with that price. But now, I’m not sure if it’s worth it?

Then again, this is just the demo so let’s dive in. 😁

[Ace Attorney] Spirit of Justice DLCs

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

It took me 3 years before I got around to playing the DLCs. 😱

So I got 3 cases, the change of outfits for Phoenix, Athena, and Apollo, and the pixel themes which are included with the cases. I don’t really care about the rest of the DLCs aside from the trials. Nick’s outfit though 😂. If you haven’t seen them, here’s a video from Megaman NG from Youtube:

Let’s start with the Asinine stories. To get this out of the way, these extra contents are “what-if” scenarios only and everything that happens is just for the heck of it. Each content is only about 30minutes long.

[First Impressions] Binary Star

Kamiya Yun
Heta translation at the end of the post. :3

I’m starting another otome game! Hehe. I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve played one.

Binary Star is released in the early years of PS Vita. It also seems like one of the best games for the console. This game has been on my Vita since 2016 but I’ve only gotten to play it now. 😌

Here’s the summary from VNDB:

When she was 7 years old, what Sorano Fuu (the protagonist) saw in her living room were the lifeless bodies of her beloved parents, who had died at the hands of an unknown culprit.

 

Taken in by a group of people known as “Tenshi”, Fuu asks them why her parents were killed. One of the Tenshi said to the young Fuu, “Your parents were “Dealers”, who are people that sell “Hoshi”. That is why they were killed.

 

Her parents were criminal vendors of the illegal-to-sell, taboo Hoshi on a large scale. This truth greatly troubled Fuu, and so she made a vow – to atone for her deceased parents’ crimes.

 

Now, the 20-year-old Fuu is a Tenshi who protects Akatsuki, a town in Cloud.

 

There was something she saw through the many missions she completed with her colleagues. That “something” is their sad pasts, all of which revolve around Hoshi.

 

They are still bound by the past; will they be able to break free of the curse of their pasts?”

Happy Easter! (and some TokiMemo News)

Happy Easter everyone!

I really wanted to share this news but I was fasting for the Lenten Season so nope. /o\

So this week, I came across a couple of news about Tokimeki Memorial Girls Side 4! I was so shook! Imagine, it’s been years, YEARS, back in the good old days of PSP, since the last time Konami released anything about TMGS (I’m not counting the Tokimeki Restaurant).

But here we are in 2019 with TMGS 4 set to release in 2020! Yassss.

Let’s hope right in for the TMGS news!

[7’scarlet] 11 Things I Missed

Replaying is something I don’t really do often. Doing it for 7’scarlet made me realized that there were bits and pieces of details I missed the first time I played the game. It’s a fine discovery and it made me appreciate the writing through these foreshadowing more.

[7’scarlet] Impressions of an RPG Gamer

PS Vita’s life has come to an end. I am sad about that fact as it’s my favorite gaming platform ever since it replaced PSP. All of my favorite Visual Novels, especially otome games, are PS Vita releases.

To think, otome games have just been localized in the Western in recent years.

If you’re new in the otome gaming world and feels pretty bummed out that it lost one of its primary gaming platforms, fret not.

Companies like Intragames are porting VNs, most importantly otome games, to PC via Steam. For this post, I partnered with Intragames to bring you their latest release, 7’scarlet.

7’scarlet is a mystery otome game set in the far-flung country of Okunezato. The heroine Ichiko Hanamaki, visits the place to search for clues for her missing brother. As she delves deeper into the country, she uncovers the many mysteries and secrets of Okunezato and its residents.

I’ve already played this game last year. Since I’ve already uncovered the secrets once, I’ve decided to play this with my good friend for a different POV. So here’s Nami!

Taishou Mebiusline – Senge Iori

2018-09-28-180528

It took me a month to get through Senge’s ends.  (ಥ▽ಥ//) Unlike my previous gameplays,  I never wanted to finish every ends, unless they have CG or it’s not a bad end. So I got through 1 end and then proceeded to Misaki’s. This was a big mistake. Not only did it make me sad for Misaki, but it made Senge’s route even more painful to go through. It didn’t help that he went from bad to worst in each end.

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds (薄桜鬼 真改 風ノ章)

20180925191339_1

Title: Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds
Company: Otomate
Release Date: August 24, 2017
Platform: PC (Steam)
Walkthrough used: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1122528878

In a nutshell

In the hopes of finding her father, Chizuru goes to Kyoto to search for him. Instead, she finds the Shinsengumi. Shinsengumi members are a bunch of guys who protect the city but is also feared by the people. However, these guys are searching for her father as well. So together, they search for Chizuru’s father while she stays with them.

I was really hesitant to play this game since I felt like there was so much to catch up on, what’s with the long line of Hakuoki titles. Even with the two new titles, it was hard for me to know what was the difference between Kyoto Winds and Edo Blossoms. But my curiosity won and I’m so glad I played the game.
