My nemesis, the redhead childhood friend who's good at nothing has appeared once more to menace my playtime.
Yay, another childhood friend-hater! High five! You know, I wouldn't hate Kanade so much, if it wasn't for the fact that on my current route, she's constantly a sideline presence to the actual plot, yet they just keep rubbing her into my face. Can it! I don't want to hear how super-special she is, and I don't give a damm how obviously she's been in love with Shoichi years before the game even started. In fact, I'd just like to ignore her, if you'd be please so kind to let me.
BTW, I decided to give up on the liveblog, since no one was reading it and it was starting to interfere with my enjoyment of the story.
Anyhow, I think I got pretty far into Riho's route, but I'm starting to feel that the game is overstaying it's welcome a bit. There have been several points where I thought 'This would be a nice open ending', but the story decides it wants to go on and on and on. FYI, Shoichi and Leo just declared open warfare.
Honestly, I'm getting a little tired of it. You don't just keep on piling crisis after crisis to be resolved in yet another dramatic crescendo. The audience (me) will eventually grow jaded if you repeat that cycle too often. Well, at least this arc has a bit of a Final Boss
feel to it, so I'm sure my suffering won't last much longer.
Oh, and H-scenes are decidedly unsexy. Not that I am that disappointed
, but it felt like they weren't even trying, making the whoele thing just embarrassing. Well, at least they are rare.
Other than that, nice story. Loved the part where Goda leaves the band
. Didn't expect something like that to come along.
