[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!

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds (薄桜鬼 真改 風ノ章)

Title: Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds
Company: Otomate
Release Date: August 24, 2017
Platform: PC (Steam)

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.

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds – Sanan, Yamazaki, Saito

Hakuoki Kyoto Winds Sanan Yamazaki Saito

At first glance, I thought I randomly grouped this three together because there’s no other grouping for them lol. But in a closer look, these three are somewhat similar to each other. They all have this difficult to approach aura.  Yes. Even the seemingly kind Sanan. So let’s start with him!

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds – Heisuke, Sano, Shinpachi

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds contains 12 guys that you can go after.  This is probably the only game that I’ve played that has that much character in it. Thank goodness, you can only play half of their routes in this game (the story continues in Edo Blossoms). Somehow, I can understand why Otomate decided to split the story in half – and it’s not just about money (maaaaaaybe about 5% is not about it www). Imagine playing 12 full routes. It’ll take me half a year to finish it lol.

But still, cutting the story just when things are finally picking up in each route?  WHATщ(゚Д゚щ)

[Scribbles] I Switched!

I know the title’s lame (haha) BUT I got myself a Nintendo Switch!

Earlier this year, I was debating with myself whether I should get a PS4 or a Nintendo Switch. There were nice games on both consoles but I was leaning towards PS4 *coughcheapercough*. Then Otomate announced the “switch” to Switch and that pretty much nailed my decision to get it.

Heya! So lately, I’ve been playing 7’scarlet. It is an otome game with a tinge of mystery. While the game is pretty short, it doesn’t cut out on surprises.

The Gist

One year after the disappearance of her brother, Ichiko got invited by her childhood friend, Hino, to travel to Okunezato where the members of Okunezato Kinki Club meet up. This club is formed through a website, bringing in people who are interested in the mysteries of Okunezato – the same town where Ichiko’s brother disappeared to. Days after their arrival, mysterious events keep on happening one after another.
