Needing some serious rest from the grindfest that is Bloodbourne I picked up a game called Nights of Azure, completely unsuspecting what it was about, but the cover art should have warned me. That said, it gave me the rest I needed and entertained me besides, proving itself to be one of the more interesting games I've ever played, though honestly it was basically a playable light novel. If you want more info, head on over to my review of it, and see if you'd like to try this thing out.
Though yes, yuri. So yuri.
Some time ago, a creature known as the Night Lord rose up to bathe the world in eternal darkness and rule forever in the shadow of the new existence. Armies rose to challenge him, but all were defeated in their turn until the great Saint defeated him in combat. However, his death did not come without consquence, and his blood rained down upon the world, and corrupted all it touched. Thus were born the beasts who devour the dreams and night time of the people, especially upon Rusewall Island where the final battle took place. Into this, comes Arnice, a woman who has not been corrupted by the blue blood, but instead has fused it equally within her, making her blood purple thus taking the blue blood's power, but keeping her human free will. Here she has been charged with defeating the beasts, and ensuring that the new Saint is protected until it is time for her to be sacrificed to seal what remains of the Night Lord once again. Problem is, the new Saint is an old and very good friend of hers, Lilysse, and Arnice will be damned if that one will be sacrified. Other options will need to be considered.
Before Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, and Korea, there was a slightly bigger war affectionately referred to as the second world war. You may remember this from your history courses – it was the one after the war to end all wars, WWI. In an alternate world, the continent of Europa is in the middle of its own World War, but unlike our world, where splitting the atom made the biggest boom, the superweapons of choice were the Valkyria, heroic maidens with incredible destructive powers who vanished at the end of the last war – unfortunately for Gallia, war didn't vanish with them. Join me for a little cross-dimensional visit to the world of Valkyria Chronicles to see if we can't find a few maidens that measure up to the impressive proportions of such well endowed heroines.
And yeah folks… I'm still alive. Barely. Keep an eye here for more updates soon, I've got a lot of catching up to do.
