Re: Soapbox: You Should Stop Pre-Ordering Games


I don't feel like you're valued as a pre-order consumer - in recent times it feels like those who pre-order or Day 1 purchase are seen as guinea pigs to test the game for issues, before they release a patch. So essentially, you're paying top money to (in many cases) test a game that will subsequently need to be patched, by which time it will have gone down in cost.

Re: Soapbox: How a Niche PS Vita Exclusive Made Me Feel Wanted


Great read Kerry I totally agree that there needs to be more otome games on the shelves, and was so glad when I heard Hakuoki was being released in the UK.

While normally I don't give a damn about what gender the main character of a game is (it's the gameplay that counts!), you are spot on in saying it's nice to have a game targeted towards the female market without it being some stereotypical fashion/pet sim/cooking sim title once in a while. I really don't mind playing as a male character, but as @Bliquid says, it can be a little disheartening when a game you enjoy continually makes you feel like it really wasn't intended for you :/

Diversity in the market - that's what we need!
