Unless it’s the Memories Off people making it…
Even if you’ve played the original before, this is a whole new experience! But no matter the circumstances, Steins;Gate will always be a god-tier Visual Novel. It just can’t go wrong! …

Sometimes, it’s good to go back to basics: How about a Visual Novel with a school setting? Cute girls, festivals, childhood friends, trauma, bullying, a serial killer on the loose. Ah! How nostalgic!

Does anyone still remember Punch Line? It was a thing 2 years ago, but much like any anime focused on being kawaii, most people end up forgetting everything about them 1 or 2 years later. And after our long absence, we decided this game adaptation has become obscure and H enough for us to tackle!

I love Steins;Gate! I have such good memories from watching the anime and the game! Which is why I hope for the actual sequel to be nothing like this spin-off! I wasn’t exactly expecting a cute love story out of Steins;Gate, but this seems to be the fate of every game from the science adventure series. At least Hiyoku Renri no Darling didn’t suck! Well, not too much!

Saenai Kanojo no Sodatekata (translated as “How to Train an Ordinary Girl to be a Heroine” or “How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend” as it’s officially known in the U.S.) is a relatively popular light novel that was adapted into a somewhat popular anime. Around the time the animation project was first announced, 5pb and Mages reached Guyzware to develop a Dating Sim as a tie-in for it to be released a while after the TV series ended. This was a smart move by them, since this developer is responsible for the absurdly popular Oreimo Visual Novels, so they know their stuff. But again, it’s not like their records are filled only with huge successes.
The Science Adventure series is great! You get MAGES and Nitroplus – two companies that I love – doing what they love the most: convoluted plots filled with over-the-top action and bizarre designs! Robotics;Notes is the third entry in this series, so I was certainly expecting great things from it, I just didn’t expect this would end up being one of the best Visual Novels I’ve played in my life!
In the Visual Novel realm, there’s a secret war between Console & PC games. It’s extremely rare to find someone who play titles from both systems, and PC gamers hardly ever talk about console-only releases. Which is why it took me so long to get to Kaihou Shoujo SIN! The reason behind such disregard for console-only VNs comes from a common belief that those are “cheap games with poorly written stories and mediocre graphics, made by people who know nothing about the genre”. I beg to differ! From what I’ve seen, PC-gamers from the Galge community may not be exactly the “master race”, and Liberation Maiden SIN is yet another reason for me to believe in this!
