What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Long live the Queen

Have you ever wanted to play as a high-school girl royal in an anime version of Game of Thrones? Better question, have you ever not wanted to play as a high-school girl royal in an anime version of Game of Thrones? I mean, who wouldn’t?

Long live the Queen is a visual novel-y, rpg-y anime… thing, developed by Hanako Games. In it you play as Elodie, a Queen-to-be 14-year-old whose mom has just tragically and incredibly conveniently died. On the bright side though, now you get to rule in her place and/or die trying.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Zombicide

Hey there gamers, I know there a lot of you following the geeks. And this is Lilith’s first time writing a game review. So it’s a big day I guess.

Have you ever wanted to play as a talking, anthropomorphic version of Link? Is your tolerance for cheesy dialogue and angsty characters high enough for you to watch Zero No Tsukaima? Does the idea of playing as a semi-undead, samurai warrior in any way appeal to you? If yes then don’t play Dust, because it’s all of the above, but less fun and more irritating.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – The Legend of Korra

Are you a fan of the Legend of Korra series? Actually don’t answer that, it was a stupid question. I mean, it’s got awesome ladies kicking butt and looking good whilst doing it. Who could hate that? In any case, if you’ve always wanted to know what being the Avatar feels like, then the game for you is finally here (and indeed has been here for the past 4 months).
