This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Rhyme Time


Since I'm medicated and not in the mood for anything more strenuous than vegetation in front of cute anime girls, this seems like a good way to fulfil the post quota.

Last time, we decided to continue on the Rin route. Let's see where it leads.

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Rhyme Time


A shorter update this time.

Of course, we're going with Rin. If it helps, I might do a few other run-throughs next time to showcase the other characters, assuming I don't forget about this in the near future and lose all interest.

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Rhyme Time


Generally when I get a new idea for a project, I run it into the ground until I get bored of it (which happens quite quickly), and then I leave it on hiatus indefinitely. Until I suddenly get another burst of inspiration, and then start up all my old projects again.

Anyway. Previously on Nursery Rhyme, Shizuma got conned into a date with Yukina, or at least what amounts to a date. This doesn't actually have much to do with the plot, since it's not like the player can choose to get out of it.

But I have this blog entry to do.

When last we left off, our protagonist Shizuma had been accused of a Humourously Embarrassing Peeping Incident, involving what is obviously the tsundere option Tita Flawless Brandt. A d2 flip made my choice for me: Shizuma tells all.

So it goes.

The last time I tried playing Nursery Rhyme, I didn't get very far. Time passed, and the blog stats kept telling me that people seem to like that post. Gods know why; maybe everyone's actually looking for real nursery rhymes, which have often struck me as being a bit creepy if one knows their historical roots.

(This is why I'm not heading my entry with "nursery rhyme", since someone looking for something for their kiddies might not react kindly to eroge.)

One of the frequent comments about Nursery Rhyme is that it's actually a pretty good game, or at least a good Visual Novel (disclaimer added to head off debates about the definition of "game"), and it is Such A Pity that nobody's made an English patch for it yet. Since the main reason I didn't finish the game was entirely because of the lack of an English patch, I can understand this, much like how I cannot understand most of the text in the game.

Therefore, a thought occurs: being that I have no other ideas for a blog post that haven't already been overdone, why not post about a playthrough of the game?

Normally I'd keep a post like this at the back of my mind, hopefully to be forgotten, because it's a very bad idea to start yet another thing I probably won't be able to finish. However, Real Life has landed me in the middle of what might be described as Excreta Occurs, and I really need something to cheer me up. Therefore, you get this. I may or may not continue on with this, depending on my whims.

In the far future, when I am no longer under the thrall of soul-sapping situations, or at least head up instead of head down, I might alter this intro to be less irritable. Until then, so it goes.

Incidentally, don't ask me where I got the game, since I don't even remember it myself. I suspect that this is one of those "friend of a friend", or "guy who knows a guy" things, and I'm horrible with keeping track of those.
