Testuya recently had been seeing the same mysterious dream, with a lonely kimono-clad girl gazing at the moon in the middle of an open grassy field. He returned to his hometown of Koga after four years in Tokyo and was a bit saddened to see his place of memories changed due to recent development. One night, he headed to his favorite place, the garden of irises Ayame-en, and was startled to find a girl there who looked like the girl in his dreams. He joined the archaeology research group that she was a part of with the intention of getting to know her. Contrary to his initial impression, Ayame was a hardcore gamer, lacked common sense and called herself a princess from the Sengoku era. – Hau~ Omochikaeri~!

Also known as Deception IV: Blood Ties for the English release. There hasn’t been a new entry in the series in almost 10 years, if I’m not mistaken. The main complaint I’m seeing now is that the characters don’t fit in with a dark game like Kagero. Is that really the case, or is it just the older crowd from the PS1 era showing their usual aversion to the anime aesthetic?

Kaihou Shoujo aka Liberation Maiden was originally a shooter for the Nintendo 3DS. As part of the Guild Series, it involved a collaboration between developer Level-5 (Dark Cloud 2, Dragon Quest VIII, Ni no Kuni) and game director Suda 51 (No More Heroes, Killer is Dead, Lily Bergamo) with animated cutscenes from studio Bones. SIN is the sequel to that story told in visual novel format.
“I hate to break it to you, Tomoka-san, but according to this, your video card is fucked!”
Sometimes things don’t go the way you had imagined it in your head. Rewind to the holiday season, and I’m plugging away at one website (which will remain unnamed) while a bunch of video encodes are queued up for the other, not to mention lots of ideas stirring for the Top Openings of 2013, and that’s where it all fell apart. There is never a good time for computer hardware failure, and it’s usually when you least expect it. Naturally, your reaction is to freak out first and think later, so I did what any sensible, well-adjusted person would do. I rage quit, launched the Steam app on my Android phone, and purchased more games. Because who needs a working GPU for those, right?
Now I know what you’re thinking. “But Red, why would it take three months to get that sorted out?!” Well, when you add a hard drive crash on top of it, shit really starts to hit the fan. Apparently I have really bad luck with those, and you’d think I’d have learned by now that you should never put all of your eggs into one basket. Thus, it’s taken me a while to regather all of the necessary tools that I depend on to keep this blog running. In any case, Eroyume is officially back in operation. Granted, not in top form, but expect stuff to start happening soon.
