Nurse Love Addiction

Developer: KOGADO STUDIO | Publisher: Degica | Release Date: 2016 | Genre: Adventure / Simulation | Website: N/A | Purchase: Steam

Nurse Love Addiction is the latest yuri visual novel to reach Steam and stars Asuka Osachi, a young student who enrolls at the Teito Nursing School with her sister Nao. All her life Asuka has been content just floating from one thing to another without any real purpose, earning the nickname “Leader of the Jellyfish Club” in the process. However, when her fellow club members start to take their future more seriously Asuka is left wonder what to do. Eventually she discovers her answer scrawled in the back of her favorite childhood book in which her younger self expressed a desire to become a nurse.

Asuka is a bit of an airhead, and spoiled rotten by Nao, it is no surprise when her sibling enrolls along with her to keep her in line. There the two also runs into Sakuya and Itsuki, a dating couple, as well as the beautiful Kaede, their homeroom teacher. All of these girls end up playing an important role in Asuka’s life, depending on which of the routes players take through the game. In all there are nine different endings to uncover, four good, four bad and one where she doesn’t end up with any girl.

Initially Nurse Love Addiction feels like a typical slice of life visual novel with plenty of drama and a bit of romance, especially when playing through the Kaede story arch. This is because most of the story takes place at the nursing school and dorms as well as a few surrounding spots. There are school events like festivals, summer vacation breaks and of course, lots of nursing related scenarios.

However, playing through the other story paths reveals a lot more surprising twists and turns. In fact, some of the bad endings, left us with our mouths hanging open due to how dark things can get. There’s not much more that can be said without spoiling any surprises, but suffice to say that Nurse Love Addiction is not your usual fluffy yuri love story. This might disappoint some people as the game features no nudity and the actual yuri scenes are mostly just kissing. The story is genuinely engaging, though, but we recommend playing through all the routes to understanding everything that is going on. Trust us, the neutral ending doesn’t even begin to delve into the really weird that can happen.

Visually Nurse Love Addiction looks really good with some nicely drawn artwork. The game favors a soft, pastel coloring style for the art, which is quite pleasant. Although the cast isn’t very big, they are all well drawn and unique. We would have liked to see a few more locations as apart from a few unique scenes, such as the beach and a convention, most of the story takes place at school or in dorm rooms. In total the game features 54 CGs, and those already seen by players can be viewed again from the main menu after completing the game at least once.

The audio also impresses with about fifteen music tracks in total. From the bouncy and cheerful “Even nurses are just girls” to the eerie and sinister “The Growing Black and Red World” these tracks are a great match for the game. The two vocal tracks “Sunny Place” and “A Future With You” also stand out as really good. The voice acting doesn’t disappoint either as all of the major characters are fully voiced in Japanese. The background music, voices and sound effect volume can all be adjusted independently and you can toggle individual voices on or off. You can even choose any of the girls to do the system sounds, which is a very cute touch.

In typical visual novel fashion you can left-click or press a button to advance through all the text. The interface is straightforward and every easy to use, with the “Skip to next choice” button in particular something we wish more visual novels included. Initially there were some language issues, but this was quickly addressed in a patch.

Nurse Love Addiction is definitely a game that surprised us and we recommend going into it knowing as little as possible about the full story. The characters you encounter all have their own charm and unique backstories that make them interesting. Those expecting a straightforward and feel-good yuri visual novel are probably in for a shock, but overall we recommend that anyone who enjoys a good story check out this game. It features plenty of choices and enough story branches that it kept us busy for more than 20 hours to see everything.

Highschool Romance

Highschool Romance is a lighthearted slice of life visual novel with a rather small cast and very short story. Despite not taking very long to complete and not really covering any new ground it does manage to be quite entertaining. There is some fanservice, but overall the game is quite tame considering the subject matter. Gameplay: The game is short and the story not exactly original, but it is interesting and well written. Graphics: The unique visual style takes a while to get used to, but does fit the game. Sound: No speech, but a few of the audio tracks are rather good.

F.E.A.R. 3

The series is moving away even further from its creepy horror roots and starting to feel a bit like a typical "Call of Duty" style shooter. There's still a few nice ideas, but the scares are thin on the ground and the story isn't exactly gripping. The co-op seems to have been the main focus of the game and works well. Gameplay: The shooting mechanics are solid but it loses that spooky "F.E.A.R" feeling along the way. Graphics: Looks good and the environments are a bit more varied than before. Sound: Nothing but silence from the lead character, but overall the voices and music is decent.

Borderlands

Borderlands

Borderlands is a unique first person shooter with some nifty RPG elements making it very action packed and addictive to play. For the best results the game should be played in co-op as the story is rather thin and the game has a very MMO feel to it. The unique art style and abundance of weapons makes this game a great time waster. Gameplay: Thin on story but lots of action and loot hunting. Graphics: The visual style sets it apart from other first person shooters. Sound: A good soundtrack and decent voice acting.

Pinball Arcade - Core Pack

Although one of the tables in the core pack is already available for free, it is more than worth it for the other three. Theatre of Magic is perfect for introducing newcomers to the addictive nature of pinball while Ripley's Believe It or Not has something for everyone. Even Black Hole which looks pretty basic by today's standards has some very unique gameplay elements to keep you hooked. Overall a very solid selection of tables that looks and plays great. Gameplay: Four great tables, packed with hours of addictive gameplay. Graphics: Faithful reproductions of classic tables. Sound: Distinctive audio with some great speech samples and effects.

Pinball FX3

Pinball FX3

Pinball FX 3 is not just a small update compared to Pinball FX 2, but feels like a brand new game. It comes with a range of new features that are aimed at drawing in newcomers as well as keeping veterans busy for longer. Not only does the older tables look better than ever before, but the brand new challenges and cross-platform features provide added incentives to return to them. It is a pity that not all the Pinball FX 2 tables could make the transition to the new game, it is a relief that the majority can be imported to the new game without having to pay for them again. Pinball FX 3 is without a doubt one of the best pinball games available on the market and definitely doesn’t disappoint if you are a fan of the genre. Gameplay: Plenty of new features that make it worth moving over from Pinball FX 2. Graphics: Thanks to real-time lighting and shadow projection the tables look better than ever. Sound: The guide can become a little annoying, but fortunately the game features plenty of audio options to customize your experience.

NaissanceE

NaissanceE

NaissanceE is not a game for players that want to know exactly what is going on at all times. Instead of offering any explanations the game simply drops you into a surreal and intimidating gameworld that thrives on your confusion. The result is an experience quite unlike anything else and one that will stay with you long after the journey is complete. Gameplay: First person exploration with a dash of puzzle solving and platforming. Graphics: Beautiful and imposing in equal measures. Sound: Atmospheric audio that greatly enhances the whole experience.
