WOMI Interview Update? Yes!

This was a long time coming (as I haven’t been able to find someone to TL English to Japanese for me; I took matters into my own hands), but I finally sent off an e-mail to WOMI about an interview. I just got a response saying that he’s cool with it and will answer any questions that he can. With that exciting news, if you guys have questions for WOMI, please write them in the comments below. Yes, I know I’ve asked this before, but it’s actually kinda relevant now, so ask away! Please be within reason, and be respectful. Thanks!

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Interest Check: SchwerCast

Lecht and Rink!

So I’m thinking of starting a podcast dedicated to RKS, doujin gaming, and general ridiculousness. Would you guys listen to a weekly or bi-weekly show? Accompanied art is by まさきけ. Click for the big version on Pixiv!

Flash Game Fun: Mega Man, KS-Style

Rokko-Chan is pretty good! If you follow Mega Man fan game news, you’ve probably heard about Rokko-chan, the amazing full flash game MM tribute featuring the namesake moe Mega Buster girl. If you haven’t, give the game a shot. It’s quite good, has some neat challenges, and should appease you a little bit while you wait for Freudenstachel. However, there’s another fan game that may have slipped under your radar, and the only reason that *I* found it is because I have terrible ideas and like searching to see if other people have terrible ideas too.

So the answer to that quiz I promised you guys and never gave is that Lilly is indeed the best character in Katawa Shoujo, but maybe you disagree. Maybe you didn’t like Lilly very much. If so, then boy do I have the game for you! Meet Hisaoman, a Katawa Shoujo-style NES Mega Man clone, brought to us by Newgrounds user ShadowWhoWalks. The only objective in the game is to defeat Lilly, named Blind-tan in this game. You only have a single-shot Mega Buster (where you fire pills instead of bullets), and you can’t slide. The controls are simple (though the mechanics make the game a bit floaty), and overall, the game is very easy. However, it’s worth it to give it a shot and see how it ends when you win.

By the way, I’m not a fan of the X2 soundfont, but Flame Stag’s stage theme is always awesome.
