How’s everyone’s February so far? The release calendar has been updated: sadly, the Grand Knights History NA release has been indefinitely postponed.
I’ve also fixed the Playstation Vita launch game list (made it alphabetical and added a few titles). Thanks for the comment, Prinny!
What else has been going on lately…let’s see… Club Nintendo NA has a new item, the 3DS game case . I’ve already ordered and received it (fastest Nintendo shipping ever). Fairly decent case, a bit flimsy and cheap feeling because of the very thin plastic Nintendo now uses for cases. But the several double-sided paper cover inserts included are very nice, typical classy nintendo fare. I’ve noticed Nintendo is stepping up it’s publicity for the club, sending out free cases to game blogs this month, which is good…but I really hope they add a server or something for their site, which still absolutely shuts down with any kind of traffic.
Katawa Shoujo is still making it’s way through the gaming world’s collective id, and various reviews and impressions have been trickling out. The two I’ve read so far, one from rockpapershotgun , and the other from Japanator, couldn’t be more different. If there’s anything I’d recommend reading, its the story of how K.S. came to exist in the first place (if you aren’t already familiar with it’s origins), which could probably be a virtual novel in itself.
As for my own impressions…I’m really not sure how I feel about it. That the game itself is a writhing mass of contradictions is one of it’s biggest strengths, but it doesn’t help trying to sort out how exactly I feel about it. Could possibly be the most emotionally involved I am going to be with a game for a long time (completely unexpectedly!) …but I don’t think I’d really recommend it to most people. Maybe I’ll write more about it later.
