Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors came out of nowhere. A dark visual novel with great puzzles and an even better story. When Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (VLR) was announced, I was instantly onboard. I was mad at that game when I finished. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever been angry at a game as much as I’ve been with VLR. The game does end on a big cliffhanger, but mainly I was mad that there was nothing left to do in it, and that my time with it came to an end. Virtue’s Last Reward i...
Here is a little game I didn't even know I was excited for. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward! This is the sequel to the beloved 999, which I admit I haven't finished. I started it like the day before I get Virtue's Last Reward, but I did read the story and trust me...its amazing. So play that or read the summary of that before you play this.Virtue's Last Reward is a game in the niche genre of Visual Novels. Think of this game as Professor Layton for the big kids. You read the story, and occasio...
Virtue’s Last Reward is a sequel to a game that I loved on the DS called 999, or 9 Person’s 9 Hours 9 Doors, which absolutely floored me. I did not expect to enjoy 999 as much as I did, but it was one of my favorite titles in a long time. VLR did not hit me as hard, but it is still a quality title in its own right.The art-style of VLR is different, as this game focuses on 3D models rather than the manga style drawings of the previous title. I prefer the old design much more, but it is really a m...
A couple of years ago I was surprised by a relatively unknown DS game called 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors – a visual novel, adventure game that was developed by Chunsoft and published by Aksys Games. As a videogame, 999 did not do much in terms of gameplay. It was a visual novel, after all. So what little gameplay sections featured were the typical, point-and-click adventure, puzzle segments of finding clues and items and coming to a conclusion to escape the situation the characters...
My brother played VLR and loved it, talked its story up, and then bought it for me for Christmas so we could talk about it. I cleared out a weekend to get through the first play through. It started out alright enough, locked in an elevator with spunky/sassy anime female and a crazy bunny AI/Puppet from a Saw movie. By Sunday night, I was irritatingly cussing at the screen while blindly clicking through every bit of the first ending I got for this story. I then immediately was thrust back into th...
Let me get one thing straight: I completely revere 999. It was my game of 2010. It has it's flaws, but it offers a story unlike any other game. A story so good, it will make you forget anything not so great about the game. So when I heard there was a sequel coming out, I was absolutely thrilled. And when I played Virtue's Last Reward (which isn't a great title, I have to say), I saw how much this game is similar to 999... starting with the flaws. First of all, the 3DS version is busted. Overflow...
