Perhaps you may not have to spend this Christmas alone again...well, kind of.

The other day, I was browsing DannyChoo, and found this article. After seeing the many “Love Plus is reality” comments, I got curious. And a little scared. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a try and started playing Love Plus.

Love Plus is a dating sim for the DS, developed by Konami, and is supposedly the next big thing in dating sims. Apparently, it has a load of features such as real time coordinated events, emails, and such, and tries to simulate a complete relationship with one of the three heroines. From the left in the picture above, they are Takane Manaka, Kobayakawa Rinko, and Anegasaki Nene. Nene is the “older sister” figure, and Rinko is the tsundere who annoys me to no end. Seriously, the conversations have been: “Hey!” “Shut up.” “What did I do…?” “Chi-.” And she walks away. So in the end I decided to go for Manaka.

Personally, I haven’t seen anything awe-inspiring or causing me to want to abandon life and get married to one of the girls (which has sadly, sadly happened…Japan, you are so strange). The voice acting is rather nice though. If only they would do that for all DS games…

Ah well, at least I learned some Japanese from it.
