Maybe if Ohohoho sent one of those desserts to her parents they'd love her again.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!!
hooo yes, a game that I have almost entirely played (I just have some trophies left to get, like the " being strong " or " cutest girl" ones, ) So basically it's quite funny t see your progress through it, KNOWING what would actually happen to you hyahyahya (yes, sadistic me!) but so far every path is still open for you,
I'm eager to see which options you will chose .Especially one side character is very tricky to meet, you have to be exactly at the right place the right day. I would'nt have got his ending without a walkthrough I must admit. And he ended to be my favourite char in the whole game ( because being difficult to meet AND totally the " out of the box"one... I'm sure some of you too know who I mean ;)
Beside: What I liked with the game: you can also romance the girls, and theyre not brainless ones! Ellen slightly more interesting than Virginia, IMO but I'm totally fond of V's afro hairstyle.
You have too use some of your magic skill to solve the dungeons ( a lot of skills are useless other are highly useful, but, you're meant to find wich one you'll need to use..).
I had doubt at the beginning of the demo (ho nooo not another school stuff), but I found the game so funny, so WTF that I bought it just the very next day. No regrets.And I'm a sucker for the tango music them too. I always find myself dancing on my chair when it's played (I've played several times the begginng of Damien's route just too hear this theme - and laugh a lot at his double meaning sentences too :D)
Tthere is a thread on Hanako games forum about a sequel to come, where you will play this time a guy in wolves house ( with both girls and boys love interrest yum!). Not exactly a sequel as a matter of fact, more a parallel story. And some side characters will be there with a biggest role. No exact schedule is annonced for this wolves game, but you can be sure I will dl it as soon as it will exists.
Yep, Big steve's the guy at the Arcade
BEWARE SPOILER! soli-chan, don't read :D
yep, I followed the topic on Hanako's forum since it's a recent update, it's not mentionned in the official walkthrough. But once again, be sure to have the latest version of the game! You really have to get each event to get this ending that's why I said it's tricky.
I will try it one day when I'm patient enough.
Pretty sure I left off updating because I wanted to replicate that treat and take pictures and eat it. Damn, it would have been GLORIOUS.
Another time, perhaps. *dusts off thread* Right, so after writing that bit of letter it’s time to take a walk. Because…it’s a tried and true method for the plot to assert itself. I mean, look what happened pretty much every instance we’ve done so~! Lo, and not a few lines out of the room did we spot a convenient fountain of information to interrogate:
After making soothing gestures to William’s noble sensibilities and outright denying that getting senpai to notice us wasn’t at all in the plans, of course. Nope nope nope, perfectly pure and friendly motives here. He takes it suspiciously in stride, natch.
But blockheaded stubbornness wins out! And they’re really not painting subtly here are they? William straight up questions whether the people Damien claims are his parents truly are related to him and makes a whole bunch of other remarks that only serve to enhance the aura of mystery around said demon. Also there was some straight up brawling that first year. SPECIFICS, PLEASE.
I will laugh so hard if Damien turns out to be ordinary with absurd reasons for why all the mystique and drama, though. But let’s not distract from the increase in protagonist density because there she goes, straight to compassion without all the gaps filling in proper.
OH WHITE HEXCODE, this is what happens when you spend so much time derping around! Quick, Virginia, give us the lowdown on WHAT DO! Which turns out to be, pray for salvation and hope you prepared well enough in spellcasting because SECRETS. Seriously, secrets. IS NOTHING EVER STRAIGHTFORWARD?!! (I think I would be much more calm if the game hadn’t been all, “SHHH JUST COME” to me but not five dialogue screens earlier. While promising goodies. For such a long time. “I DON’T TRUST YOOOOUUUU!” Soli shouts to the high heavens as she steps into the trap anyway.)
AND THEN I HAVE NO IDEA WHY BUT THE INCLUSION OF THIS SCENE ONLY SERVES TO MAKE ME DESIROUS OF MORE DISTANCE FROM WILLIAM. GOOD JOB, GAME. WELL DONE. /sense, this makes none
/I actually rewound this part because I thought there was a deeper meaning etc. But all you need to know is that Virginia probably has a big brother complex and theirs is a family with awkward relationships and backing away because things are looking pretty crazy complicated thank you verra much so let's greet the new day with desperately repressed memories!
+10 points of respect to Grabiner, for actually addressing the important bits. Also, yep totally attending because this exam thing came out of nowhere and we’re totes going to need all the help we can get. Ellen’s there as well and the professor wastes no time in firing off questions.
I wait for the day my willpower stat overcomes his intimidation buff. Til then, fantasies of a truly epic Sassing War shall have to be but dreams. In any case the Socratic Method is in full swing when Donald gets caught out for…something? We didn’t see but Virginia’s brother is serving detention Saturday. NO, GAME. I AM NOT GOING TO GET FURTHERLY HOOKED. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME.
So these are solo quests, and you have to come to a certain room at your appointed hour. Ohohoho raps politely at the door before entering, despite the lack of any reaction. FAINT HEART NEVER WON FAIR BOOTY~! BUT SUDDENLY!
ALL THIS TIME, WE WERE SECRETLY MARIO
Yay! The thread necros and the land rejoices!
I have totally forgotten, who is Soli trying for?
Full weirdness stat. No other preferences have been made.
THE THREAD IS ALIVE!!!
Ozzo, why are we suddenly avatar buddies? o-o Also, I THIIIINK we've ended up romancin' all of the demonz. I don't know. xD I think he was adorbs, but I really did like Grabiner's route. Ironically, my first game, my character looked like she could be related. xD;;;
Because of this, basically. xD
Well if nobody else has voted yet, I VOTE GRABINER.
Because I haven't played the game in a while and I kinda sorta miss him. >.>
Is it up for a vote? If so, I choose either Elly or Virginia why yes i am a yuri fanboy
Also, HP reference in title, YES.
Also, also... actually I forget what else I was gonna say. Oh well.
I have the sudden creeping thought that this could play out remarkably like Bluebeard. Which isn’t helped by the pankicked musings of Ohohoho, already contemplating failure and being bricked in like the Cask of Amontillado. She actually attempts to gauge Grabiner’s cruelness factor but enough of this lollygagging!
DANCE, MAGIC DANCE~
But before we can truly appreciate how much exactly nothing is affected, the dungeon fades out and we arrive back at the school. Praise be for that, the music was starting to get a little too bloodthirsty for my tastes. Apparently it was a good effort, despite us lacking the power and skill to actually back it up. I don’t get it.
Don’t be hating because you didn’t think we could outfox you! I actually agonized pretty deeply over whether I should use black or blue for that! Grabiner the Grouch then makes sure we contemplate the gory mess of not being able to teleport yourself out consistently. Thanks for that.
…I HATE YOU SO MUCH. DON’T YOU START TRYING TO TEMPT ME EITHER. *is in a face punching mood* So we wobble out of the room still not sure of what to think about the school. We eventually make it back to the room and swap stories with the roommates and then a package (and allowances) arrive! But first a reprieve.
SCORE! William, I may yet forgive you. He mentions something about us being “real” witches now and then calls us kids in the next breath. Ohohoho pipes up and gets her hairs scruffled for her snark but I don’t caaaare because -5 stress awwww yiiiissss~
You done good, game. I am appeased by such offerings. It lays some of my earlier concerns to rest at the very least and some of the more lurid imaginations are looking very silly indeed. *patpats*
BEST NICKNAME FOREVER AND EVER.
I'm glad you've come back to this LP, Soli. :)
*blinks owlishly at thread* People still read this? You nutters.
Oh hum, but hey guys. Inexplicably I have managed to remain completely in the dark about this game so spoiler tags are greatly loved. My romancing of the weird stat aside, I was going to go for Damien for first route and then possibly Grabiner. Because Nebty and Ferdielance and all the other people who've been evil and made me curious dangnabbit!
You won't be disappointed. It's very weird.
Also, some of the choices you have to make are rather finicky. Do you want tips or not?
To be fair, I just saw it on the front page and decided to read it because CoS reference in title do want.
Considering how long it even took to get me to this point I'm thinking...I'll make a decision when we get there. Bit more inclined to just crashing and burning however. XD But yes, I fear the nuances of the route must need be seen before I can adjust accordingly. Also, thank you.
Broken Forum, do we want to run for office?
/my body is saying no but my mind...my mind is saying yeeeeeeessssss only I'm having trouble deciding
You must run for office! Also, be treasurer (hint hint).
Treasury (trust me with your lootz yes) has always been an appealing option. On the other hand I really am disliking the implications of that Minnie Cochran. I'm feeling almost spiteful enough to say hang it and run just because.
I vote for treasurer because of you-know-who. Not Voldemort.
Oh? That's odd. I didn't think this would matter all that much for routes. Huh.
Minnie is adorable. Don't worry about that.
So long as she isn't one of those perfect people I think I'll be okay.
Becoming a treasurer is the only way to get a certain route, in fact!
For some unfathomable reason, that line made think of the song I Ain't as Young as I Once Was (I think that's the title). Probably because of the line
My brain is weird.
EDIT: oh right the vote I say go for it. If anime has taught me anything, it's that student councils have nearly unlimited power. Never mind the fact that I've actually BEEN on student council (albeit just for a small private school) and the only meaningful stuff we got to do was planning the school Christmas party and customary End-of-Year excursion.
No, she's very sweet. She helps you with your homework sometimes if you stay home on the weekends to study. I think she's a few years older than the PC.
When in doubt, go for it. Run for office, full steam ahead baby.
Throwing in another vote for secretary. THINK OF ALL THE MONIES, SOLI-CHAN, THE MONIES.
Barely finished page 1 but:
-ALL THE UTENA REFERENCES.
-If we haven't locked into a route yet can we please do the yuri route? Or at least can I get some assurance it will be done at some point? /does chibi eyes/
Run for treasurer! I have no idea what it does, but I trust
Nebty for some reason.
GO FOR THE MONEY!
Because it gives you some quality time with Snape Gabby's sweet ass~
I voted for Vico, remember? Yesss, I know what's best, Nerys. Follow my leeeead~
*snrk* Oh god.
A wild update appears!
Student Council usually includes the most fabulous people in school so please do so.
Seeing this again, Virginia's hair looks like a badly made yarn wig.
