Falcomonth is over, and now we move on to DatingSiMonth, whose name is a bit of a misnomer, being that it focuses on actual Dating Sims, Visual Novels with romance gameplay elements and so on. Still, for my first pick I’m going to keep things much more traditional, I guess.
And my current pick is the obscure Mujintou Monogatari R for the Sega Saturn. The original MM series was a set of rather detailed and complex Island Survival simulation games but at some point, the company decided to branch out into adding Galge elements in this spinoff series (indicated by the R, which I guess stands for Romance?)

One may speculate on why they did this, perhaps in preparation for an actual commercial release of a later game in the series, but being that most of you are now thinking “I haven’t heard of this series, I didn’t know it was free”, I’m guessing that’s a good explanation as to why they never followed-up on that.

It’s the unofficial January 2014 Falcom community playalong! As Frederick from FE:A would say: “Pick a game and play!” and since just about everyone is probably going to pick a Ys game, I choose…
What do you mean that’s not what he said? Continue reading
It’s the 30th anniversary of Nobunaga’s Ambition, the game which started KOEI on the track to become the company they are today. While some may argue that they’ve lost sight of their origins in an endless “milking” of the “Warriors” franchise, KOEI has decided to take it upon themselves to release a brand new game to celebrate the event!
Nobunaga’s Ambition: Souzou (translates to “Creation”) is the 14th game in a long-running series of Grand Scale Strategy games. How does it hold up? Let’s take a look… Continue reading
