What a grazeless end to the saga.
I am truly sorry.
You don't have anything to regret, that was cringeworthingly (yes) awesome. <3
Today's game is the (very anticipated) "My Magical Cosplay Cafe"!
I swear I was gonna start this like 2 hours earlier I have no idea what happened.
Well aside from the half-hour of looking for other shorter options because I thought MMCC was longer than it turned out to be.
Ooh, pretty intro screen! I approve!
"Kinda hard to tell what with everything being white."
"Something"? Emotionally or physically? You know what a hand feels like, right?
That's probably it.
... Are there any dating games where you DO have a girlfriend/boyfriend already? It'd seem a bit redundant.
And then, the guy turns out to have forgotten his name.
And his name's in a bright yellow hard-to-read font.
Just for that I'm naming you Ratatao!
Though it makes me wonder if he loses his memory often.
Woah oh uh, hi there.
You look like one of those dolls from girly online dress-up games.
Wait, was I sleeping on the floor? Kitchens don't typically have a lot of chairs.
Before you ask, no I don't think Ratatao gets to wear a magical girl uniform.
I'd hope said "someone" is Riririri.
You look!... Slightly less like a doll!
Your hand's distracting though.
Also Yamato's a boy name I thought.
Tattle-tale! Damnit, don't tell her!
It's not a crime to nap on the floor darnit.
Her sewing skills seem lacking if nothing else.
... At least you got a job out of it.
He then proceeds to make omelets.
On the other hand I proceed to completely forget to document the existence of these omelets, no doubt distracted by his desire to explain to me how omelets are made and dangit Ratatao I don't even like omelets, get on with it.
There's a parfait on the menu too but he'll make it after the omelets are done.
As he takes the omelets ... somewhere ... he bumps into someone.
That name... Doesn't it translate to "Black Shadow"? My lord, you're goth.
With a confusingly non-gothic hat.
It's like she's a... shadow. A black shadow.
Hell if I know! Making sure that forgetting your own name didn't mean you forgot everything else?
Oh stop whining, all protagonists gotta do it.
And she stole our omelets!
Our delicious, non-existent, eggs-only omelets! Yeah seriously he only used eggs in them. Either that or I stopped paying attention after he added eggs.
... If it only has eggs can it be called an omelet ...?
Was it called omelet or omelette? Crap, I'm confused!
Oh right, parfait.
That's ice cream right?
Oh dear. Turns out, someone's eaten almost all the ice cream!
Still, we manage to make our parfait.
You... could go buy more? Maybe?
What time is it anyway?
Wait you're the chef.
Wouldn't you know who's messing about in your freezer?
... DAMNIT RATATAO, this wouldn't have happened if you didn't sleep on the job!
Oh well, time to talk to our coworkers! He tells them about the missing ice cream.
They don't think it's a big deal though.
Who said breakdancing wasn't available in the first playthrough?
Also, am I the only one freaked out by Riririririririririririri? I dunno why, but she gives me the creeps.
Breakdancing is obviously the best choice.
It's 'cause she's a doll. She's got too much gloss and pink on her... everything.
I can't help but imagine him having a beatbox with him for this express purpose.
... So er... the good or bad kind of stare?
I'll take that as "bad".
I wonder what breakdance excuses -- I mean adventures -- await us today!
"Why do you have a boy's name?"
I just figured you cosplay as magical girls only.
Yeah, sounds legit!
Yes, busily is a word.
... I think.
... is it? I've been using it...
I'd comment on this, but I think all I'd be able to say is "HAHAHAHAH".
Dolls aren't well-known for their agility, I suppose.
As much as I'd love to tease her, there's a far more appealing option here. :3
There's no better option than breakdancing in the whole world. All games should have this option.
... Now I'm imagining we playing something deep, like Train of Afterlife, and then there's the option Breakdance.
"I DON'T CARE ABOUT LIFE AND DEATH AND ALL THIS MEANINGFUL SHIT ANYMORE! LET'S JUST DANCE!"
Breakdance since alternative is not very protagonist-like unless you are Phoenix Wright.
let us dance the break
Help her with the dishes. Hope she is love interest.
... That wasn't the best idea after all, huh.
Slicing my hands open while trying to interpretive-dance-insult you?
While I'm busy Riririri slinks off, and I turn back to find someone completely different staring at me.
Please ignore the glass all over the floor and my completely unbandaged, glass-filled hands.
Kurokage points out that she works here.
Well okay, then... I'll call you ...
I hope you understand what I'm trying to tell you!
What? No I'm not calling you a worm, it's a snake!
... What do you mean that's not better?
Oh damnit now my chest is full of glass pieces too.
I wish this didn't happen every time Riririri broke dishes. BUT A MAN'S GOTTA DANCE!
It is! Did you get it? :D
I was calling you a snake, did you get it? :D :D
Offended, apparently, she runs off in a huff. Weirdo.
My hands and chest are full of glass shards and I'm bleeding profusely, but I'm totally fine! :D
... I see it was a very brief lull in customers.
Well, I can't handle customers! I gotta DANCE!
Looks like I mopped up all the glass with my chest.
I'm sorta like a blood sprinkler now, I guess. Yamato is not too impressed.
That and I'm full of glass, but thank you!
Ratatao musing to himself after having wrapped up his wounds.
Maybe the cafe's just full of those pre-made sweets.
He also proves how lazy he is.
AN EXPLOSION ROCKS THE SCREEN!
Everyone's busy! Probably out fighting Godzilla or something.
IS THIS SOMETHING THAT CAN BE SOLVED WITH BREAKDANCE? STAY TUNED!
I saw the first "Breakdance!" option and literally burst out laughing. BREAKDANCE ALL THE THINGS.
EDIT: This game is amazing.
LOL I love it how any of the girls give a single fuck about his bleeding wounds.
This game's so awesome.
This is all Sofalisa's fault. She has been poisoned by Donmai to always pick graze breakdance.
Oh, hello officer!
... A magical battle, huh? Toldya it was legit.
But it's so boring inside!
Gotta give him props for trying to keep people safe though.
Heroes have to do heroic things, Ratatao! You're a lazy bum with a passion for breakdance!
... Well maybe you're someone's hero.
What do you plan to DO, exactly?
Or a thief!
(Returning to the cafe would be out of worry for the girls.)
But screw everybody!
All we need...
Oh huh, so that's Ratatao?
Ratatao, you have terrible fashion sense.
Ratatao's got FANS!
Is that actually a job?
And if you start dancing every time something happens, you're probably better off that way!
DANCE TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT, RATATAO! NOW AND FOREVER!
And then Ratatao danced until he died.
Hahaha~ Fun game~
Can't help but wonder what the serious paths are like though.
... Probably not as awesome.
THERE IS EVEN A CG. I am laughing so hard right now.
PFFFT of course they're not as awesome.
Well, if I even tried to vote serious, everyone would destroy my serious gamer self by voting breakdance anyway, so...
I should have expected this ending.
None of the paths are actually that serious. It's a parody game, if you couldn't tell. But yeah, the breakdancing ending is the best. >D
Well yes I guess amnesiac boyfriend counts.
The sequel to Elven Relations, Mermaid Liaisons, has you start out already dating a girl as one of the options. It's pretty interesting. In the previous game, your friend Kei could get together with your childhood friend if you didn't. In the sequel, you play as Kei, so if you choose the ending where Kei got together with Tohko as the canon ending, then the point of the romance is to stay together, rather than to get a girl. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated in forever, so I have no idea if it's ever going to be finished, which is a shame, as I enjoyed the first game, I love Tohko, and the idea of nurturing a relationship rather than earning one in a game is an interesting one that you don't see much.
The true end in this game is pretty great as a 'duh' moment, too.
Sakevisual has come out and said that this was made when they were trying to think of TERRIBLE settings for dating games. This game was also cited as sort of an inspiration for Ristorante Amore, if my memory serves correctly.
Oh, this sounds interesting! I thought Elven Relations was kind of fun, so I want to play this now.
And then I check this page and it has a release date of "maybe 2011." Fuuuu--- See, this is why I am so hesitant to talk about my in-progress projects. I have a fear that I will never, ever finish them, and if no one knows about them in the first place then I haven't disappointed anyone.
Yeah, I noticed the "maybe 2011" to. LOL, it's almost 2013. They don't update this site for some time now.
... So hey
I'm going to be gone all day tomorrow.
And that means I sorta have a bunch of stuff I need to do today.
So ah... I don't have time to do a game today. I'm sorry!
I'll try to make up for it soon, but today and tomorrow, someone else should play a game.
First come first serve as before, whoever goes "OH HEY I WANNA" will get to do it.
ME ME ME
Dibs on tomorrow! I have the perfect game for the apocalypse, I just need to find it~!
My internet is sucking a lot today, so it might be hard, but I'll try. I'll probably play Shrinkled.
You don't have to feel bad about it. You've done a lot of hard work for this thread and you got notice out so I doubt a day will be missed either and-
-Donmai knows just the game, eh? THIS SEEMS LIKE A GOOD TIME TO hide under my GO TO BED
Incidently, relevant for the naming in Breakdance Cafe.
Sofalia show us a splendid adventure.
Damn, guys, sorry but my internet just can't cope with it. Somebody else must take the lead.
I never seen it so freaking slow before, holy ladybugs.
Okay, my internet is better now, I think I can do it.
I never used Imgur, and I don't know how to use it. I'm just testing it right now... This is the game menu. It has no music =/
EDIT - Yeah, it works.
And let there be music! A cute one.
and cookie crumbs
Sounds like such an intellectual game.
That's the signal, not someone shouting us to bring something for them.
Teacher - Enjoy your four day weekend!
Hey, that's us! We look... Kinda catholic!
This game's art is not the best, but it's not bad either. At least there aren't many actual mistakes in it, I think.
I ran out into the hallway just as everyone else was streaming out.
Jake - Hey.
Hey, it's Love Interest! He looks... A little bit more catholic!
He's kinda cute too. I like his jacket.
So, apparently, Jake didn't went to school yesterday, and we're the best note-taker ever, so he asks us for our notes.
What do we do?
As a rule, I always share my notes. But this is a game, so sorry, Jake. No notes.
WRONG ANSWERS GO.
Let us fail to romance the Catholic boy and sit here consumed with lust for the rest of the evening!
