Katawa Shoujo review – Oh, Japan…

Most games I tend to hear about either via friends or gaming news websites. I don’t particularly claim to be an expert (although you should probably treat me as such… You may call me Professor Sabor117 from now on…) but I do consider myself pretty clued up on the goings on of the Gaming world. So when I heard about Katawa Shoujo on an online image board (because I am indeed a denizen of the internet) and nowhere else I admit I was intrigued. Even more intriguing, and indeed surprising, was the general reaction of the internet to the game. It’s a common thing on the internet to find a post which people can claim “gave me a feel” and usually the feel in question will be one of sadness or depression. Something which essentially evokes the following reaction: “Lie down. Try not to cry. Cry a lot.” Katawa Shoujo apparently gave so many people feels that the whole internet was abuzz for a fair amount of time about just how wonderful the game was, how the stories (or some of the stories in particular) spread feels about in every direction with no regard for manliness or lifting ability. And fresh from the truly heart-wrenching experience of The Walking Dead I was more than ready to pull out my handkerchief again. 

The Walking Dead review – I hate and love you so much…

Before we begin the review proper I would like to share with you a brief e-mail message I am deeply considering sending to Telltale games. It goes as follows *ahem*: Dear Telltale Games, Screw you guys. I hate you. Well, I also love you… But NEVER MIND THAT! You have done two things for which I will be complaining about to you right now! First, you have placed me in an awkward position regarding a review I wrote less than a month ago! Some things I wrote have proved incorrect and now I am feeling both irritated and foolish. I hope you’re pleased with yourself… Secondly, and more importantly! I believe your game “The Walking Dead” is a example of some form of the cruellest and most horrible psychological warfare in the brief existence of our species. I will see you in some European High Court! Good DAY to you sirs! S117 P.s. I still love you though.
