{Rant} Problems with Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly {SPOILERS FOR WHOLE GAME}

A while back, I posted a rant about Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly on the Otome Games reddit. I looked back at the post again and realized that I was still sufficiently annoyed enough that I felt the need to talk about it here as well. Some of the stuff will be copied and pasted from that post since a lot of my complaints haven’t changed, but I’m going to make edits and add more thoughts.

As the title says, this has spoilers for the whole game.

I’m not kidding.

Stop reading if you haven’t finished the game or don’t mind everything being spoiled.

{CD Review} Black Wolves Saga -Bloody Nightmare- Song Collection “Dear Despair”

I tend to deeply enjoy Rejet’s music. Say what you want about the company, but it’s hard to deny that the music that Rejet is involved with is almost always good. I have an extensive Rejet music collection, so I’m going to start by talking about the Black Wolves Saga (BWS) Dear Despair CD.

This CD includes the opening and ending songs for BWS Bloody Nightmare. It also includes one drama track, and off vocals for all of the songs. The BWS CD’s are unique in that many of the songs for the games have official English versions, and those are also included on the CD.

Song List:

01 Dear Despair
03 TESTAMENT -English ver.-
04 希望-nameless diva ver.-
05 録り下ろしミニドラマ「花びらのお茶」
06 Dear Despair -short ver.-
07 Dear Despair -off vocal-
08 TESTAMENT -off vocal-
09 希望-nameless diva ver.- -off vocal-

{Otome Review} Heaven’s Grave~Blackcross & Taylor {18+}

Heaven’s Grave follows Arha (name changeable), a shrine maiden in a small village. The sun sets for multiple days, then comes back and stays at dawn, and just keeps moving randomly. Then water begins to dry up, etc. Soon three Nakami (Gods) appear in her shrine, all in human form, and need her help leading them to the First Temple in order to save the world from the impending apocalypse.

I do want to make this clear: I was contacted by the developers and sent a free download of the game in exchange for an honest review. Getting the game for free did not deter any negative reactions or make me write a 100% positive review, as you will see below.

General Information:

  • Where to get: itch.io page/Steam
  • Cost: $16
  • Love Interests: Three (male)
  • Endings: 7
  • First play through time: About two hours
  • Time to get all endings: About 6 and a half hours (with a cat)

{Otome Review} My World, My Way~Atlus

Elise is a princess who wants to find a handsome man to marry. An adventurer (the purple-haired guy on the cover) comes to one of her balls and she is immediately smitten. Too bad he’s a jerk and refuses to acknowledge her existence because she’s royalty and not an adventurer. Elise sets off on an adventure to prove her adventuring worth, all the while, the entire adventure (towns, bosses, dungeons, etc.) are being commissioned by her father.

The big selling point of the game is Elise’s “pout” mechanism. She has the ability to pout so much that things pop in and out of existence. She can change the scenery, paralyze enemies, make monsters stronger/weaker, increase item chance, etc. all with the powers of “pouting.” I have to say, the gimmick was pretty fun.
