Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night. Welcome to yet another edition of your favorite [mostly] weekly column about new Japanese game releases, otoge, and more otoge.
This week, otoge.
Yes, I know it’s been over two weeks since the last episode of Go West!. Unfortunately, the period surrounding Golden Week over here means not a whole ton of exciting releases in the following weeks. That of course leaves us with not a whole lot to talk about, hence the radio silence.
But rejoice, my children! GW! has returned, bringing with it a host of otome games and a single galge.
I can feel the excitement in your cries of joy. Fear not, I am here to satisfy you with beautiful man bodies (and a few woman bodies), slathered in oil and other random juices that happen to make people shine unnaturally.
Or maybe it’s just sweat.
It’s probably just sweat.
Greetings, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to yet another riveting edition of Go West!, your [actually] weekly column about new Japanese games, packed schedules, and faking illness.
This is a big one. There have been a few massive weeks for GW! since its return from the dead, but on a personal level, this one is massive.
Why, you ask? The sequel to my 2012 GOTY hits.
Welcome to a quiet, sleepy edition of Go West!, your weekly column about Japanese games, no games, all the games, and Idea Factory.
If you didn’t already get the picture, let me lay it all out for you: this week’s release list is lonely. There’s not a whole lot going on right now, which is for the best considering how murderous the last couple of weeks have been.
Let’s get right into it then, shall we?
Greetings, gentlemen and gentlewomen, and welcome to another episode of Go West!, your weekly column about new Japanese game releases, boob ninjas, Batman, quests for dragons, demon lords, and a whole lot of regret.
This week is huge.
No, seriously. This is by far the biggest week of new releases we’ve seen in quite some time. There are lots of noteworthy games spread across most of the major platforms, and even a handful of small stuff that I know folks following this site might enjoy.
I have my work cut out for me.
Before anybody asks, no. I won’t be talking about Bloodborne (which I can’t wait for) here. In case this wasn’t clear when I brought GW! back from the dead, this column was designed with Japan-only (limited time or forever) releases.
With that out of the way, let’s get this rock and roll party on the road!
