Did you know that it’s been almost 9 years since D.C.II came out? Well, CIRCUS is going back to its best title to provide a canon link between the second and third games, D.C.II Dearest Marriage. BaseSon’s Koihime series also makes a comeback with the first chapter of the retelling Shin Koihime†Eiyuutan. On the RPG front, there’s titles from the usual suspects: ALICESOFT’s Evenicle and Eushully’s Kami no Rhapsody. For something that doesn’t turn back the clock, Purple Software’s Chrono Clock promises to be a good read.
So, April fools joke this year is, that there is no April fools joke, ha, ha. Although compared to most months these days there are a few games that might be worth playing, which says a lot. Always nice to see companies like Circus and BaseSon give up on trying and just whore their characters out over and over.
The much-anticipated March chara-ge treasure trove is finally here! Enjoy winter in FrontWing’s Yuki Koi Melt or look forward to spring in SAGA PLANETS’ Hanasaki Work Spring!. Be loved by older girls in Minato Carnival’s Anekouji Naoko to Giniro no Shinigami or take care of SLG idols in HamHamSoft’s LOW-RISE!!!. See the future in Insync’s Mousou Complete! or see the traces of the past in Applique’s Hana no No ni Saku Utakata no. Hau~ There’s so many bishoujos to take home!
As all good things come to an end, so must winter, forcing us to deal with everything from allergies to rising CPU temperatures. A shame the only medication I know of to make bad eroge seem better requires you be three years older than the games themselves.
Everyone knows about shooting stars and tanzaku, but did you know that mirrors and loli whales also grant wishes? There’s not too many titles this month, but there’s some chara-ge with varying levels of plot included. MintCUBE’s Ama Koi Syrups, Whirlpool’s Kujiragami no Tearstilla and YuzuSoft’s
Sonuva*itch Sanoba Witch should tide you over until March. minori’s Soreyori no Prologue promises to be a good title as well.
For such a small month I am surprisingly hopeful for the games being released. Though my embittered hatred of the continued monotony the entire industry is suffering continues, sigh. Still there is enough here to give me some hope, and maybe nudge others ever so slightly to stop copy pasting the same games over and over again. After all there isn’t much point when a game feels as though the writing and story are just there as a conduit for H scenes.
Another year means more promises and dreams. I’m hoping that MOONSTONE’s Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia and Insync’s Mousou Complete! will help the year start off on a good note. There’s also an assortment of sequels, including UnisonShift Blossom’s Tokeijikake no Ley-Line -Asagiri ni Chiru Hana- finale. What future lies ahead for us in this eroge world?
Another year also means we get to start off on the lazy foot of lackluster eroge in continuation of the last year’s tradition. Not a great month to be honest, A few games with some potential in theory were ruined by the writers yet again.
There’s no Santa or reindeer this Christmas, but there’s plenty of witches, magic girls and catgirls as presents. While Navel’s Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou 2 is likely on your wishlist, it will probably be worth your time to check out Uguisu Kagura’s Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai. And of course, there’s NEKO WORKs’ trilingual Nekopara! Doujin games are the future of eroge!
Not the most Christmasy December by any stretch, which is a little disappointing even if I dislike those games. On the plus side there is not much to worry about gifting yourself with on a slow month filled to the brim with superficial games churned out by companies looking for a quick buck. Kind of sad when the doujin games are better quality than most of the actual releases.
Another packed month awaits erogamers, highlighted by sprite’s high-flying Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm. It also seems to be a month with lots of transfer students, including the son of the demon king in Windmill’s Harukaze Sensation, a trap diva in ensemble’s Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria, and a loli that wants nothing to do with you in Chuable Soft’s Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou. Me? I’ll be busy playing with my smartphone app in PULLTOP’s fandisc Cocoro@Function! NEO.
A large amount of releases does not mean there will be a large number of good games worth playing sadly, Oh how I wish that were the case though. Unfortunately this month has more mediocre games than anything else. A few games so terrible they make me physically cringe, but nothing present that radiantly glows with an aura of must have.
The eroge world is full of mysteries. Why do aliens keep attacking Earth? Why do the protagonist’s parents always end up overseas if they’re not dead? This month you can explore the island of illusion in Lump of Sugar’s Unmei Senjou no φ, solve a series of disappearances in Cabbit’s Hakoniwa Logic, or discover the school’s seven mysteries in Lass’ Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete.
Pretty dull month overall, where the only games I may play are delays from previous months. The rest are either boring or just plain terrible. Oh well these months happen and at least it is short enough to meet Micchi’s preferences, better luck next month eroge industry.
