Was just browsing friends of friends and came across your page. I would like to say that I am happy to see another person who enjoys the beauty of Vanillaware/Odin Sphere as much as I do.

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
Alright, so! I was much pretty much on a gaming hiatus for the past few years for personal reasons, especially 2019–2020, only playing the occasional otome game release. I should be able to fit games/JRPGs into my life again, and I got my very own TV at long last! Playing Spiritfarer obsessively for a week straight after starting it made me realize how much I'd missed gaming.

I cleaned up my Backloggery, created a new theme, rewrote the bio, added some mini reviews of games that aren't too far back, updated my Gaming Listography [Link] with progress overviews from the last few years (some archived) as well as gaming plans, and reorganized my Steam account (slowly deleting some bad games from my library). Most likely won't continue using my gaming Tumblr as that's just not the platform I enjoy writing on, but I'll leave it linked for now.

For the moment, I'll be playing XC and various VNs in my Steam backlog as I wait for the PS5 to restock so that I can catch up with PS4 releases.

- 428: Shibuya Scramble is a must-play for anyone who enjoys mystery/thriller visual novels and hybrids; I'd love my memory for this game wiped so I can reexperience it all over. (Zero Escape, Ghost Trick and The House in Fata Morgana are pretty much the only other games I'd say that about.) Its humour and dynamic style are one thing, same with its drama and very human touches, but I think it's its underlying optimism that has truly touched me; I find myself missing that loud optimism ever since I've finished the game.
- Spiritfarer is profound and soothing; its (multiple layers of) characterization has me in awe, especially with how it only offers fragments of its characters, just as when you get to know someone, or meet an old friend, and catch up in broad strokes what's been going on in their life. You don't get an A–Z of their life, as tends to be the case in, say, JRPGs with typical party members and their arcs.
- Nightshade did what no other otome game I've played so far has managed, which is, with sprites and the core group (which extend to non-love interests), to convey this sense of spatial dimension. I loved how many characters were in a scene, how dynamic the sprites and their "movements" were, and how all the scenes felt like being in a cutscene or CG. And a month after finishing it, I am still heartbroken; I think the game brainwashed me into being eternally lovesick for Chojiro or sth.

Great collection and congratulations on completing so many! I hope you don't mind but I have added you to my multitap as you mention a lot of games i'm interested in checking out and you seem to have a similar gaming style as me. I am trying to curb my habit of stopping a game before it is complete but its easier said than done! Good luck with the rest of your backlog
The truth is this: My love for you is the only empire I will ever build.
