I'm not sure how visual it is; some of the reviewers seemed to be saying it was rather graphic, and others didn't mention that, so I'm not sure.

These don't have story spoilers but do give an idea of what you'll run into: One review, another review.

However, this is the Steam page for WILL, and as you can see, most of the reviews are quite positive. Hopefully everyone interested in the game can get a good idea of what the game will be so they can decide if they want it or not. I'm super sensitive to disturbing scenes, even if they're not depicted with images (I don't know if any of it is or not) so I'm opting out, myself. Even though the gameplay part looks really good...I wouldn't be able to take so many icky ending possibilities.

EDIT: For purposes of straightening my memory out, this is my Switch wishlist. I'm in doubt about almost all of them which is why most have been on my list for a long time already, due to my narrow tastes. But I'm keeping them on my list anyway since they all look interesting. If anyone has already played these, I'm interested in hearing about it :)

Getting a little worried. None of the Kairosoft trio of games released on the Canadian eShop (I wanted Dungeon Village!) and now Valkyria Chronicles isn't in the coming soon section despite releasing in 2 days.

The thing about the Kairosoft games is they're listed on the online store as released, but you can't purchase them there. What is going on? D:

Just a warning for you guys who are looking at WILL...it's quite violent and disturbing in some routes, with torture, mutilation, and non-consensual stuff. It looks like most people think it's a great game anyway but those sensitive to any of that kind of content seem to have been startled by just how dark it got in some routes.

I'd expect it's only the Steam version on sale, but I don't actually know.

Just to clarify, it's the Steam game which will be on sale or the Switch ver? Or both? I've been eyeing this game as well, but I wanted to buy it on sale haha


I finished the main story for Layton's Mystery Journey, so that's one game off my backlog~ It was very satisfying c: I want to finish all the other mini games, but I'll probably go through them while waiting in line or something similar irl.

I originally wanted to play it alongside Trio as a distraction from the routine, but it was so charming I found myself playing it more than Trio haha orz;; It's just... I need to be in Fall in Trio to finally complete the S rank tasks for Westown but I'm still half a season away, and I have nothing much to do or look forward to. I don't want to just sleep until Fall comes around, so lately I've been finding myself bored with the game D:

But! I'll do my best to finish it soon. I plan to do my second playthrough of FE:A as well; I'll focus on getting all the kids this time.

So I'm on vacation currently with my boyfriend and I thought I would be safe from adding more games to my backlog. I WAS WRONG!

Let's just add South Park The Stick of Truth, South Park The Fractured But Whole, Skyrim, Luigi's Mansion, and Yakuza 0 to the list.

I was already going to add Luigi's Mansion to the list since my boyfriend preordered it for me, but the others I didn't expect. I wouldn't have gotten them if I wasn't going to get a good deal on them. I would also add Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to the list if it wasn't still at it's starting price.

I put aside some of my purchased games for a 'rainy day' (AKA, will play them once we get a dry spot - not counting them in my backlog). I don't intend to finish Hollow Knight or Fossil Hunters anytime soon, they're more pick up and plays then things i'm trying to conquer. However, I will be picking up:

Valkyria Chronicles - October 16

Save me Mr Tako! - October 30

Yomawari Long Night - October 30

I doubt i'll be able to finish them before Pokemon in November (which will take over until I finish it), but that is my backlog as it stands. Gonna be looots of stuff going in my wishlist.

Finally, finally, finally finished Stardew Valley. It took me so long to get the very last item to complete the whole centre...a rabbit's foot...that I even went ahead and got my farmer hitched to Elliot while I was waiting. Shoulda planned better and I'm sure I would have gotten it much sooner, but I never did plan well what to use my money on, it seems. The best part of finishing the CC was that it now has a roaring fire going in the fireplace all the time...makes me want to visit it and drink hot chocolate! (As if I could drink hot chocolate, lol. But in theory.)

That's another backlog +1 for me, which as long as I finish Valthirian Arc will mean October ends at +8, since I'm going to give DQXI to my baby sis. Unless I buy something else, I guess. As posted in the Announcements thread and so won't talk about too much here, I am considering both Broken Sword 5 and WILL: A Wonderful World. Or perhaps I should just patiently wait to hear word on Mysteria's release date. Though it's just about guaranteed to be a game that only takes me two or three days to complete since all otomes seem to be that way.

I'm also considering Fitness Boxing since I actually liked that part of the Wii and Wii U, but I have no idea how that would work, backlog-wise. Not sure if it needs to go on the backlog at all. Or if it does, then maybe completing each song once would let me count it as finished. But it's only available just after New Year's anyway.

Done Shibuya Scramble, and that character the game made me hate, well...it managed to raise them a little in my estimation aftewards, but only to the level of total indifference, where I no longer cared what happened to them.

It's a good story, though some of the game mechanics became extremely tiresome as you get closer to the end and just want to get through it but it makes you replay and replay and see the same text over and over to finally get all the right connections or everyone, and it really got grating. But overall I'd recommend it if you like lots of plot twists and layers. I liked it a lot and would have loved it if it it didn't use live-action type art. I feel like moving on, though, and not bothering with any bonus content right now.

Tried DQXI again, and I think I just have to face defeat. It's too bad because it seemed to be getting more interesting, and I'm not finding any other fault in it so far (still very early on) but the battle system is everything I hate about turn-based battles and nothing can seem to make up for that, so I'm taking it off my games list and giving it to my sister. :) With that my two more recent purchases are wiped off the backlog and I just have Valthirian Arc left of my current games.

Almost have everything unlocked in Super Mario Party; I'm missing just two characters and two gems, but it should be easy to get. Afterward, I think I'll head back to Octopath Traveler and finish up what I wanted to do 3 months ago while I wait for Luigi's Mansion.

Yeesh, Hollow Knight sucked me back in mercilessly. I was getting slightly tired of Fossil Hunter's monotony, and then I remembered I still have Hollow Knight kicking around on my system. I can't stop playing it now, even though I know i'll eventually rage quit it again to come crawling back (again). This is fine though. If I get too frustrated, I'll go back to Fossil Hunters to cool off. If I get bored of Fossil Hunters, I go back to bugs kicking my « Mr.Gourmet's hat ». Win-Win.

I've got Yomawari Long Night Collection on the 30th, most likely Valkyria Chronicles on the 16th, and maybe something else (who knows with all these sudden eShop drops!). Waiting for Pokemon is getting harder the closer it draws near, but I can't wait for Let's Go Eevee in November. I wanna pet my Eevee and give it a bowl cut.

Still chipping away at Shibuya Scramble, Valthirian Arc and DQXI. Gotta say, the 428 story is unusual and unpredictable, but the whole Tama thing was really obvious, pretty nearly right from the start. I can only think they intended for it to be since the rest of the story is still pretty opaque to me. I've reached the end of the third block/hour.

I'm not that into the other two games...I'm probably going to be chipping at them for longer than usual. Oh well, I don't have anything else to play for the rest of the year except Mysteria, whenever that arrives, and being an otome, it'll probably only take me two or three days to wrap up. I'll definitely get 428: Shibuya Scramble wrapped up this month, though. Probably Valthirian Arc, too, going by the school's letter grades...I think I might be about a third done.

EDIT: Urg, my sympathy for one of these characters just dried up completely. Their motivation for their actions is so completely beyond my ability to empathize with that they now just make me kind of ill.
