July 2014 Eroge Releases

There’s quite a few RPG/SLGs this month, including Debonosu Works’ Gigai no Alruna, side-B’s Märtopia and ALICESOFT’s Beat Angel Escalayer Reboot. CLOCKUP’s much anticipated Fraternite should be an intriguing read, while FAVORITE’s AstralAir no Shiroki Towa promises to warm our hearts. For me, I’m definitely going to enjoy May-Be Soft’s whacky gender-bending Change!.

Sigh, this month well, it was a long one, and a very very boring month. The one area eroge overachieves anymore is in how much effort they put into underachieving in the most efficient ways possible. I suppose this is what happens when you limbo with lolis, the bar gets set far too low for anyone else to have any fun. For people who only care about the H scenes or if the characters are shaped more or less the same as their favored cookie cutter may find some games to enjoy this month, but if you want something to enjoy the story, development of the characters and setting, so you may enjoy the process of the game itself then… well maybe next month, or the one after that, or sometime in the future….

June 2014 Eroge Releases

Let’s fall in love! I’ve definitely fallen in love with Palette’s Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura doki. Let the love fairy Tina make your dreams come true! There’s also a ring that makes you popular in Etoiles’ Koi DOKi, which is very reminiscent of Moteyaba. The loli levels are also high this month, with Iris’ Shuki Shuki Daishuki!!, Galette’s Chiccha Love Apart and Puchi Parfait’s Niina-chan Lovely Life tempting all you lolipedofins.

Pedo paradise month apparently. Otherwise just a bunch of nukige, and generic titles hiding behind artwork. Although there is at least one game I can be interested in, marking this as a better month than the average over the last year or so, I really miss when people cared about the games they made beyond justification for H content.

May 2014 Eroge Releases

The balloons are back! Clochette’s Sakigake⇒Generation! is an entertaining title where a group of friends play a new VRMMO, while mysterious events arise in real life as well. There’s also Qoobrand’s mysterious Majo Koi Nikki and SORAHANE’s Haruka Kanata, both of which were delayed from previous months. It seems to be a good month for those who love games with a slight fantasy setting. Other than that though, it’s probably better to look forward to next month!

Well this is what we get for having some hope after the eroge market had improved for a few months, our hopes dashed, and all the more proof that it is impossible to have nice things. When a few of the releases this month prove to be successful enough to warrant analysis into why, we will end up going ever deeper into the sinkhole of boring repetitive eroge based on some CG sets displayed to a female voice actor breathing helium to reach the kind of bubbly cute that apparently turns the primary demographic into mindless consumer zombies willing to buy anything attached to it.

April 2014 Eroge Releases

The arrival of spring signals the beginning of new relationships and plenty of love-oriented games, including the dating sim PRETTY×CATION from hibiki works and Niijima Yuu’s latest story in Qoobrand’s Majo Koi Nikki. RPG enthusiasts will enjoy a trio of works: Eushully’s Ikusa Megami remake Tenbin no La DEA., ALICESOFT’s Rance IX, and Astronauts Sirius’ Demonion 2. While I’m still saddened by the delays of Sakusaku and AstralAir, there still should be many games this month to choose from, whether you’re looking for yuri, a tragic story, your own harem, or a ‘slightly risky’ relationship.

Another month with games I will actually play? What is the world coming to!? It feels like this has not happened in years at this point. Thankfully there are plenty of attempts to fill the need to aspire to mediocrity and below that has plagued eroge for so long lingering around to make all other games appear so much better by comparison. While we may never be completely rid of the wingman eroge, I am thankful to see even a tiny handful of games worth paying attention to in any given month. One can only hope this trend continues, perhaps even serving to prod some companies to experiment beyond copying their neighbors homework.

March 2014 Eroge Releases

This month is the best one we’ve seen in a long time, with 19 varied titles to choose from. I’ve been very excited for ALcot’s 10th anniversary work Clover Day’s and CIRCUS’ Da Capo III Platinum Partner, which returns to Hatsunejima. There’s also a few sequels and fandisks coming out: August’s Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai -Dreaming Sheep-, TENCO’s Eiyuu*Senki GOLD, and GIGA’s BALDR SKY Zero 2. You can also meet your long lost twin in SORAHANE’s Haruka Kanata or change the world in Akatsuki Works’ Hello, Lady!. There’s so many to play and so little time (since April will be just as good!). Enjoy!

Quantity over quality is how I would describe the releases for this year’s March. In the rush to get the post done during the loli month I was left with the feeling that it’s almost as though March 2014 was made in homage to the Circus constellation of the eroge zodiac. Although my complaints aside Micchi is at least correct that compared to most months of late this does stand out as above the recent relative average. There are even a few games that may be worth reading, a pleasant surprise after several months where not a single game was appealing enough to even add it to the bottom of a backlog. Unfortunately they are still limited to potential rather than something to be actively endorsed, so there remains a very good chance that after the games are released this will be another month with nothing good to show for it. Just having some hope alone is good enough for me to feel a little better about things after so many months were not even a shred of hope for anything worth reading could be found.

February 2014 Eroge Releases

Love comes in many different forms. It could be a battle like in Sugar House’s Otonari Koi Sensou! or the sweetest dream, similar to Purple Software’s HapyMaher Fragmentation Dream. It’s enough to make people form ‘love observation’ clubs, like in FLAT’s Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa, or undergo special love training classes, as shown in Glacé’s Koishiki Manual. What is love to you?

Sigh, I had some small hope for Light’s game to not be complete failure but sadly they chose to disappoint me more than a parent watching their child major in performance art. Other than that it feels like more of the usual, the same settings we have seen a hundred times before, the same characters, and the same lame reasoning to turn protagonists into schoolgirl chastity absorbing black holes.

January 2014 Eroge Releases

Happy new eroge year! This year starts off with new company piriri’s Kimi to Boku to no Kishi no Hibi and a sequel in TENCO’s Eiyuu*Senki GOLD. Akatsuki Works tries to promote the serious battle ADV genre with Bradyon Veda. It’s also Rakko-san’s last title, HOOKSOFT’s MeltyMoment. Don’t you love those tender moments?

So begins a new year, a Happy New Year to everyone, may we all hope for a better eroge year than last. Unfortunately for those of us who like a good game the year is off to a poor start with a set of games made more to copy the likeness whatever game from the previous years tickled the writers fancy. Sooner or later a new company will have to make something good, so good that it breaks the stale state of eroge these days.

December 2013 Eroge Releases

Another Tsuyokiss and fortissimo game? Well, it’s not the only loop happening this month, as GLacé’s Timepiece Ensemble will feature that plot device prominently. Debo no Su has a rare real-time strategy SLG coming out: Senjou no Folklore. For those who are more interested in magic, check out Whirlpool’s Magicalic⇔Sky High and Lump of Sugar’s Sekai to Sekai to Mannaka de. I know I will.

Tis the season for coal in our eroge stockings it would seem. Not much released this month at all let alone much worth playing, a few games here and there may surprise readers but for the most part a bleak and dreary month, can only hope next month turns out better.

November 2013 Eroge Releases

Having an imouto makes you more popular. It also makes this month a lot more interesting, but then again anything beats having only 7 releases like last month. ensemble presents their third title with a trap protagonist with Sakura Mau Otome no Rondo, while you can enjoy a period of popularity under your imouto’s watchful (and jealous) eyes in Hulotte’s Imouto no Okage de Motesugite Yabai.. There’s also plenty of parenting guidance available in ALcot Honey Comb’s Aka-san to Kyuuketsuki and Chuable Soft’s Wagaya no Himegami-sama.

“Having an imouto makes you more popular.” seems to be the conclusion of most games this month. Just goes to show not all ideas are theory of relativity. In some ways I am kind of glad this month is so full of the sisterphile games, with so many sooner or later the industry will try another gimmick to avoid the constant competition. Just as a candle burns out faster the hotter it is, the more of these crappy siblings we get out of the way the sooner things can go back to normal with people making decent games for more than just a “Moe” child calling the protagonist onii-chan.

October 2013 Eroge Releases

Are you ready for the Heart Link? PULLTOP’s Cocoro@Function! should be everyone’s top pick in this light month. Let’s hope that it will maintain the high quality from their previous award-winning game Konosora. LOSE makes everyone happy with more lolis in its sequel Monobeno -happy end-. Popular comedy Green Green gets a remake from OVERDRIVE, while Ricotta follows up the Walkure Romanze anime with its sequel, Walkure Romanze More&More. It may be a small list, but there’s some great games here.

Sad, sad month, not only are the games not just bland, but outright bad, on top of which there are so very few of them. It takes a month like this to appreciate all those months were nothing special comes out and the whole list feels generic. I know I tend to complain about how cookie cutter games are much of the time, but please bring that back before we see more months like this.
