Doki Doki Literature Club review – Hej Hej Monika! Hej Hej Hej Monika!

Foreword to the review: this will be a review of two parts. A standard review (shorter than usual) for the overall game followed by score and Pros and Cons, all of which will be spoiler free. This will be followed by a more in-depth story-review which I expect to be very spoiler heavy, I will put another warning before the spoilers begin, but you have been warned! Doki Doki Literature Club by Dan Salvato has a dumb name, but considering that it’s a Japanese dating sim perhaps that’s to be expected. Except that it’s not a dating sim really… Loli Loli Book Van is one of those rare games which is particularly difficult to review because I’d say enjoyment of it requires that you go in more or less blind and with no pre-existing expectations. While this can make the decision to play a game difficult when you have very little to go on, allow me to state early on: if you are at all curious about the game then I really do recommend it. At 4-5 hours in length and completely free, there is really the barest minimum of commitment to finding out what all the fuss is about.

New Assassin’s Creed for Gree

No you haven’t read the title wrong. Apparently Ubisoft plan to release a new Assassin’s Creed game solely on the Gree platform, and that’s all that’s known about the game right now. If you’re still confused, allow me to explain. As far as I can tell Gree is phone type console-device-thing… Which is not available in Europe yet and has a release date of sometime in 2012. According to Eurogamer: “It’s a Japanese mobile and social gaming platform designed to connect gamers with high quality content. For developers, it offers a “fully borderless” cross-platform network of iOS and Android players”.
