Autumnal Waterfall 40 – Saints Row IV: The Third

Aww yeah, we’re in the game now. And we have super powers!

Also, I’mma stop putting up spoiler warnings. You should know by now that there will be some.

Now that we’re in the game, I can talk a bit more about gameplay and all that good stuff. So here we go.

First up, Zinyak ...

Lily Girls’ Review: A Certain Scientific Railgun S

Hey, lads and lasses, Lily’s bringing you something currently airing~!

Misaka Mikoto and Shirai Kuroko,
Railgun and Teleporter

So, here’s the basic premise and most of what you’d need to know about the world if you wanted to skip the more laid-back Season One and get straight to extreme violence of A Certain Scientific Railgun S.

A Certain Magical Index is a supernatural action series about a world with both magic and human evolutions called Espers (Japanese catch-all term for psychics and the like). While Index follows the story of Touma who solves all his problems by punching stuff, Railgun follows Misaka Mikoto and her four-girl almost slice-of-life team of pals...

Autumnal Waterfall 39 – Saints Row IV 2

Spoilers for the game abound.

Welcome back to Saint’s Row IV, where we are now the president of the United States of the North America, bitches.

The story picks up 5 years later, where the boss is in the middle of their first term. How does a gangster do as President? Pretty bad at only twenty points. But the boss isn’t afraid to alienate part of America at all. Let’s see how they do as president.

Chief of staff Be...

Autumnal Waterfall 38 – Saints Row IV

It’s finally here, the most stupidly awesome game that I’ve been waiting for: Saint’s Row IV!

Bigger, badder and more over the top than The Third, Saint’s Row IV pretty much cranks things up so much, the knob breaks off. Now, if you were a fang of Saint’s Row 1 and 2, this is definitely not a return to form, in fact, it’s further from a gangster game than ever.

If you want crazy open world action, this game will deliver. It will be glorious.

And there will be spoilers.

Get it on Steam, some other digital distribution sites, XBox60 or PS3

You now control the country.

The game starts of similar to SR:TT...

Lily Girls’ Review: Sengoku Otome ~Momoiro Paradox~

The world is so full of injustice toward lilies, isn’t it? So Katie’s back from her month of moving and vacations and so forth to bring you a review! Our next one will be Attack on Titan because it has to be, but since I haven’t actually seen it yet (I know, yell at me in the comments. Anything to get away from the oodles of spam we get left) I decided to go with one that I happened to just be recommending to someone.

Sengoku Otome… yeah, this is gonna be good.

Enter Hide Yoshino (that name…), a high school girl who has really no desire to do anything. When asked about her plans for the future by her History teacher, little Yoshino says a career involving napping and sweets would be best. I think we can all relate to that.  She also is failing History...

Autumnal Waterfall 37 – Skullgirls

Ladies and Gentleman(?)

Skullgirls is a fighting game that’s been on PS3 and Xbox360, but now it’s also coming to PC! I’ve been wanting to play it for a while now, but have held off. It’s a fighting game that features an all female cast of improbably proportions. Several of the characters are kind of disturbing, though.

Note, I’m speaking from experience on the PC version. All features might not be available on all platforms at the same time. I hear that patching on consoles is actually a time-consuming and costly process.

Also, get it on Steam. Or if you prefer the console version, it’s on PSN and XBox Marketplace.

It’s Showtime!

The Skull Heart, the perfect gift for any girl. (No, it’s not. Do not give the Skull Heart to anyone.)

Skullgirls is an indie developed fighting game...

Autumnal Waterfall 36 – (Some/No) One Has to Die

AutumnalWaterfall

Welcome to No One Has to Die, a free web game that can be found here: http://die.clay.io/

Of course, this game is lying to you. Someone has to die.

This game is like a visual novel with branching paths. It’s not too long, I beat the entire thing in less than half a hour, but its quite a fun experience going through it. So, someone has to die, and you get to choose.

You are the visitor.

The game s...
