Amnesia Memories: Ikki day 26-31 (Bad end 3) + Replay for all endings

Warning: this post covers every ending. It’s gonna be looooooooooooooong.

Ikki asks for a breakup. The heroine and Orion goes home.

Meanwhile, Ikki and Ken talks about going to the beach. It is revealed that the heroine is Ikki’s first love whom he’s been chasing after for ten years.


Yay I got the bad ending!

Replay for good end:

Turns out I have to go back to the second day and fix many of the minor choices I made, particularly those that makes me sound more serious about the relationship. An example of a scene I missed is this holding hands scene from day 8


Ukyo also gives a good warning on day 11 to be wary of bad people…


Ikki hears about that and goes to ask Ukyo about what he talked about with the heroine. Orion praises him for acting when he thinks his girlfriend is in danger. Ukyo’s talk also made Ikki aware that his fanclubs might seriously be thinking of harming the heroine. Continue reading


Amnesia Memories: Ikki Day 16-20

I’ve abandoned this series for a long time, but now I’m back.

Because you’ve been pretty much useless, on the 16th day the boss gives you a round of basic training (more like a modified military bootcamp training), and you’re pretty much done by the end of the day. Ikki even teased you about it.

After he dropped you home, he called to check on you. He said to hold the phone until you go to bed, so the heroine tells him to bugger off and respect her privacy, and he said okay. After that I beat 3 people at rock-paper-scissor and air hockey, then called Ikki back. He said he had something to talk about and suddenly decided against it.

He approaches you the day after about the same thing, only to brush it off the same way. Later that night, he calls you on the phone while drunk. The heroine is worried and went over to check if he’s not drowning in a ditch or anything, and end up visiting his room. Orion is unsure whether the heroine would’ve done something like this before she lost her memories. A moment of awkward silence passed, and Ikki suddenly hugs her and tell her to stay with him for the night.


The heroine asks him what made him so wonky, and he told her that the guilt from refusing all those girls who try to woo him have been taking a toll. Although he’s the one refusing and hurting those girls, he feels the one truly hurt is himself, and he feels bad about that. Then he reveals why he goes out with girls for only three months: he entertains them while it last, and then they dump him and make him feel horrible. Continue reading

Love Wins with Fire Emblem Fates

“You know I’m not ashamed of the way I dress, Corrin. And I feel I should show that confidence and pride in public. The only way the world will grow more tolerant is to see people like me. …See us living, loving, and being both our unique selves and quite ordinary. When we’re not invisible, we can become part of the pattern—woven into the fabric.” – Forrest (Conquest)

Yume100 Review: Making a young lady’s dream come true

Ever wanted to be a princess surrounded by not one, but a hundred charming princes? Yume100 (Yume Oukoku to Nemureru Hyaku-nin no Ouji-sama), or The Kingdom of Dreams and 100 Sleeping Princes, is a puzzle+visual novel game where you are a princess in this very testosterone-filled world.

Basic Story: you’re basically coming home from work (or school) and voila! This furball butler says you’re the lost princess of a kingdom and he needs you to defeat the “Dream Eaters” and restore peace to the Dream Kingdom. Cheesy, right? Well, the premise is kinda cheesy, but it’s what every girl dreams of right? Going to another world and becoming a princess and all.

Honestly, it’s your typical “I-came-to-another-world-and-got-myself-a-reverse-harem” kind of plot, but that’s not the main point of the game, really.
