Doki Doki Kusoge

Doki Doki Kusoge deals in all things Japanese culture, be it video games, anime, music, or film. You can find the latest info translated from Japanese rags, reviews, previews, and other weird features. Despite its namesake (kusoge means shit game), DDK does not deal exclusively in garbage video games. Its founder just has a masochistic tendency to subject himself to them. No, it's not healthy. Elliot G. runs things here. A former Destructoid and Japanator contributor living in Japan, he likes to make himself suffer by playing the bad stuff so you don't have to.

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, 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!

Welcome one and all to yet another mind blowing edition of Go West!, your weekly column about new Japanese game releases, Digimon OTPs, visual novels about violent girls, and PSP games in 2015.

This week? 

A fucking lot.

We have new games spanning a multitude of different genres, a few of them big releases for this half of the year. I probably should have waited to reboot GW! considering how weak last week was by comparison.

Whoops.

Let’s cut this short and dive right in, shall we?
