rock robin


After playing a bit of Moon Diver on my PS3 with a friend (and getting my butt handed to me) I decided I should play something a bit less fast past so…. instead of continuing the drawing I’m working on I decided to play Rock Robin!
Continuing after I got myself kicked out of my own band I now was trying to hit people up for a smoke when a mysterious hero with a pack comes and gives me one! I thought he was hitting on me to but say wha? He isn’t?! FFFFF, get back here ass, wtf is wrong with me?! Then oh?! Shitstick wouldn’t even take my money for the pack of cigs? Ya well, one, you lost out on all this and two, kiss my ass. Time to go drink the memories away, wheee! I wanted to go get my stuff from the douche’s (Sterlings) apartment but I didn’t want to go back cause then I’d end up burning the whole place down happily but I don’t want to go to jail cause of him so lets get drunk!
So I end up in a small bar I know owned by a guy named Owen that is married to a girl named Tracy. I know him from 2 years ago so hey! let me stay at your place! He’s whipped so he has to go ask his wife if I can stay. After getting the okay from the ol’ ball and chain he gives me a funny look, whatever that was for, and I head to my new room. Nice place if I do say so myself, should prob take some tylenol or something for the pain but to tired from all the crap before and end up falling asleep then waking up with pain all over. Okay! time to make a plan to get back at them, mwahaha!
Step 1: Get a drink.
Step 2: Make plan.
Step 3: ???
Step 4: PROFIT!!!
Ya, that seems about right but while planning that out I hear some kid having a hissy-fit near me. Little shit knocks over my drink so I get up all in his ‘I’m gonna tell daddy!’ face! I ‘escort’ him out but as I go to get another drink Owen stops me, argh! Now I have to stagger myself to another bar but hark, do I hear the daddy’s boy laughing at me? Go back home and ask him for a bottle, that’s the only drinks you’ll be able to have tonight. Oh? Whoa whoa whoa here, your daddy’s a drumming legend? I try to keep myself from grinning evilly and saying ‘Excellent’ ala Mr. Burns from Simpsons but this could work in my favor. I try to flash him my ‘winning smile’, time to butter this sucker up! Oh, that drink you spilled, water under the bridge, let me go buy you one now.
I wake up in a hotel room with knocking on the door. The kids on the floor and I wonder if… I didn’t? DAMMIT, why the hell not?! I answer the door and… why hello there handsome. Wait your kicking me out and arresting me for something I have no clue about? ARGH! From bad to worse.

We did that? EPIC! I love it! Wait, he isn’t the good brother wow this is getting better and better. Why didn’t I at least sleep with him again? Phenomenal! He used a stolen credit card to pay for the room! I end up getting separated from him as well while he is probably getting away scott free from this while I’m in ‘detention’ with the manager. Well while I await my punishment I think I’ll end this for tonight!

Well, remember that one otome game I was telling you about before, Rock Robin? Well imagine my surprise when the creator invited me to play the demo! How could I say no?! Plus looking at the guys over again and the updates some of them made me really want to give it a whirl! I haven’t played much of it but I like the beginning already, REVENGE!! MWAHAHAHAHA! I love revenge, I’m petty like that. I think that’s why I like the manga Skip Beat by Yoshiki Nakamura so much (such a good manga, READ IT and Tokyo Crazy Paradise! You won’t regret it, I promise!).

So you start off with being kicked out of your band, not to sure if it’s your band per-say or if you just wrote songs or what but hey! I be pissed! I can be pissed! It’s my band in my head now I did it all! My first thoughts were though to be honest ..wow Joel is pretty hot! Then I saw Natasha and was like, psh, slut and then the pièce de résistance, Sterling. Ass-hats are throwing me out of my own band! I instantly didn’t like Sterling. What kind of douche wears sunglasses indoors?

Joel is on the left, Sterling is center and Natasha is on the right.

Well the guards have to come and escort me (Robin but for the sake of my sanity I’m just going to say me) out on my butt and since I’m mega tired tonight I’m gonna end it here before I sink my teeth more into this. I’m having high hopes for this but only time will tell!

Well been browsing more independent games and found this other spiffy one called Rock Robin.

You play a girl that’s a head band or wants to make a band or I dunno, haven’t played Demo yet cause it said something about crashing so kinda afraid to play it. XD

Things about it are though you can only be a female main character and romance males. The creator lists it as a visual novel but what draws me into the game is the ability to create your own band. Raising stats and picking the right people and stuff is what draws me into a game. I’m kinda turned off by pure visual novels cause as someone compared them to, their like a ‘chose your own adventure’ type thing. I like raising stats and doing other things ala Always Remember Me and the famous Tokimeki Girls Side for Nintendo DS. Also games like Loren: Amazon Princess and Planet Stronghold which is more RPG’ish with romance options. I adore those games! Reminds me of Dragon Age and Mass Effect!

The characters are up on the website, located and I’m assuming that the heart next to the certain guys means their romanceable. For some reason that reminds me of Harvest Moon candidates how they used to announce them with hearts next to them which makes me giggle with happiness. Anything to do with Harvest Moon I love, love, loooveee! ♡o。.(✿ฺ。 ✿ฺ)

I know I should try the demo/beta but with my backlog of games I have no time. XD So for now I’m being optimistic about it and keeping an eye out on it’s progress. If you play it though tell me what you think of it! (。・ω・。) The official webpage is located here: http://www.rockrobin.com/
