Title
visually stunning and contains moments of provoking writing (most obviously placebo's meru/miru/milu storyline as well as much of the casual dialogue between primary characters throughout all routes) but its plot is primarily either unrecoverably plunged deep up its own ass (correctness) or incongruously tropey, trite, and self-irrelevant (matchmaker).

the silver case was a great game hurt by its ending only partially working, requiring a sudden amount of investment in a complex and contradictory cyberpunk plot when the previous chapters worked so well in their subtlety and tight, character-focused script. flower, sun, and rain, meanwhile, lasered in on its combative yet fascinating gameplay and world, only to be hurt by its latter third having to forcibly connect back to the silver case's already overwrought storyline. the 25th ward, meanwhile, feels broken all around, so deeply linked to the silver case that almost everything it does ends up pointless in comparison.

    I was really invested when playing correctness and the game felt like a fever dream with insane atmosphere and aphex twin quality level music, but matchmaker was just your standart anime story full of shitty anime tropes and it honestly killed all my interest. I'm gonna need to take a break because it was such a dissapointment. People are saying placebo is really good so I'm looking forward to that but... idk matchmaker should've been left out. As someone who watched a lot of anime growing up and it's already done with it, this kind of predictable storytelling (for anime at least) gets really annoying real quick

      surprised you went straight through them like that. i alternated between each one in order, which i'm assuming is the intended release order

      Yeah I fucked up lol, the way you played is the intended way, but whatever, it has it's pros and cons. The difference in style between the alternate narratives became very apparent to me playing this way. I'm a big fan of surrealism so ending correctness kind of ruined the experience :(. I'm still going to finish it all though

    This having a higher rating the original game is heresy.
