8 thoughts on “The Sunday Otome Gaming Mail: Issue #37

  1. Every time I see a new update for CR, I smile rofl

    • Hello, my friend!

      You mean Code: Realize, right? Sounds like somebody’s definitely getting the fandisc! Or are you going to wait until Aksys localises it?

      • Aw yea!
        Due to my financial situation, I’ll have to wait for the Aksys release, but I look forward to everyone’s reactions!

        What about you?

        • I haven’t even played either version of the original game yet! Even if I did have more spare time to game, I doubt I’d pick up C:R before the other handful of games in my backlog that interest me much more. Not even sure if I want to support Aksys after that Norn9 debacle.

          • Oh boy rofl….Norn9 sure was something else in that regard.
            I still want to support them since they at least gave Code a good translation and honestly, it’s going to be a few years before I’m even able to comfortablly play Japanese otoge….I mean, I don’t want to support bad translations but considering how niche this is to begin with, if we started to halt purchasing all the localization, I don’t think we’d ever get far.
            This is such a hefty topic rofl
            I hear that Yukyuu did really well and is pretty short, so you might like that one Laramie!

            • It definitely isn’t a simple topic… Sure, charging people $30~40 for a piss poor translation is wrong (just because your customers can’t read Japanese, doesn’t mean they’re retarded and can’t pick up on mistakes), but the censorship irked me more. Perhaps I’ll give them a chance if Norn9 will remain an isolated incident (I do have Hakuouki and Bakudan Handan from when I bought them years ago), but if something like that were to happen again, I won’t ever bother with Aksys. Not that they’d care since I’m clearly not the target market, to put things simply.

              I’m hoping the Western otome gaming options will grow to the extent that shit stains like E2 Gaming won’t ever have a chance unless they conduct themselves like the professionals they ought to be. While the otome market and community is growing, the growth is pretty slow at the moment so I’ll probably have to be prepared to face more idiotic, opportunistic companies in the future that only care about making a quick buck at the expense of titles I love.

              But moving on, yes, Yuukyuu did do quite well and it does have some themes I’m interested in (mecha? YAY!) so I’m certainly getting to it at some point in the future. =) It’s probably going to be one of these “plot over romance” types but that’s fine with me.

              • Perfectly said, Laramie. And E2…..yeah, not even sure whether or not I should give them another chance.
                Haha, from a lot of reviews I’ve read, it does seem to be plot>romance, though it was well written in the latter. It’s been compared to CR a lot because of how the heroine matures and the story telling is similar.
                What other games are you interested in?
                Also, cannot wait for Kokorogawari!

                • Thank you, Leaf. It’s a topic that I’ve visited many times and thought about at length.

                  However I feel about E2 Gaming, I don’t and won’t look down on anybody who will purchase their localisation as long as they can appreciate that E2 made a lot of dick moves. The majority of even their most simple-minded sentry drones- the ones who basically parroted “everyone makes mistakes, k?!?!?11!1!” ad infinitum; as though E2 just made a typo or something- have acknowledged that what E2 did is wrong at the very least. Even if I didn’t know a lick of Japanese, I would be tempted but I wouldn’t bother with these clowns. The best I can hope for at this stage is that they’ve really, honestly improved and will try to become more professional in the future or that the (slowly) growing competition will ice out the companies that prefer to be assholes rather than professionals.

                  Other games… At the risk of sounding lazy, I think it’d be faster for you to read this page if you want a comprehensive list of the otome games I plan on playing/am interested in. But if you just meant what upcoming titles I’m interested in/keeping an eye on: Steam Prison, Gunjou no Yuki, Because We’re Here, Caramel Mokaccino, Bara Sensou, Yuukyou no Aster and Variable Barricade.

                  Thank you for your support as always, Leaf! =)
