Akiba’s Beat’s a JRPG for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita developed by Acquire and localized by XSEED (NA) / PQube (EU). It’s part of the Akiba’s series but has nothing to do with the prequel (or the anime) other than taking place in Akihabara and dealing with otaku culture. For more information about the game or to buy the EU-version visit this site: Rice Digital

This is a trophy guide, explaining what you have to do in order to unlock each trophy. I won’t write a complete walkthrough but if you have any questions about the game I’ll try my best to answer them.

There’s more than one difficulty level but it doesn’t affect trophies. You can play through the game on Easy and still get everything.

It’s possible to collect all trophies in one playthrough. There aren’t any missable trophies.

It takes around 60-80 hours to unlock the platinum trophy (depending on which difficulty level you play on)

Some tips:

Always stock up on Parfum and Escape Keys because you will need them A LOT. You can buy them at any item shop (except vending machines).

Sometimes the game forces you to play as other characters than Asahi so it’s better to try out different characters and get used to them.

If you obtain ingots, sell them. There’s no reason in collecting them and you can only carry 20 of them with you.

Since I saw people asking about it on other sites: In Chapter 13, when the game tells you to look for Mizuki, you find him at the end of the Hideout Delusionscape.

More Death Games for everyone! Err…no that’s not how I wanted to start this blog post. Anyway, I’m back with yet another game related project. It’s about a Japan only PlayStation Vita/PlayStation 4 visual novel called Tsuihou Senkyo (Exile Election) developed by Nippon Ichi. If you are into games like Danganronpa you have probably heard about this one before because it definitely borrows more than just some ideas from it.

I’m writing about Exile Election on Twitter but I realized it’s not the best place for it because of the annoying character limit. Well, I only planned to do some livetweeting but somehow ended up writing way to much. Now it’s more like a mix of translation and detailed summary. So I decided to put the complete version of the text into a series of blog posts. I’m sure there are some people interested in reading this!

Title: Parascientific Escape – Cruise in the Distant Seas
Developer/Publisher: Intense/CIRCLE Entertainment
Genre: Escape ADV
System: 3DS (eShop only)

Parascientific Escape – Cruise in the Distant Seas has been on my list for a while now and I finally got the chance to play the English version. After playing Gear Detective (which I enjoyed quite a lot) I expected something on the same level for its prequel but unfortunately it’s pretty bad. It still was worth it in a way because I got more information about some characters but overall it’s giving you headaches instead of being enjoyable.

I’m back…kinda…


Miniature Garden

I’m sorry for disappearing all of a sudden even so I still had some blog posts planned and all for December. Since I was more busy than expected with RL (and playing games) in January/February/March I didn’t have any motivation for writing blog posts and didn’t even use my PC at all (not even for reading Visual Novels) ahaha…

I’ll be back from hiatus soon starting with an ending guide for the Visual Novel Miniature Garden (coming out March 30 on Steam!) and an overall update to my blog. I already replied to most of the comments I got while I was away.

Anyway, just wanted to say that I’m still alive!



It’s been a while since a light novel managed to make me forget everything else around me while reading. Normally I’d just read a chapter if I feel like it, sometimes putting the book aside for days or even weeks, but with Occultic;Nine I really wanted to know what happens next and the ending left me longing for more! The English release of the second volume will probably not happen before February or March, though.

I’m not watching the currently airing anime adaption and don’t plan on doing so (for now) because the summary of the first two episodes plus the overall reaction scared me off. How the hell do you even fit a whole light novel into ONE episode!? Seems like it’s going back a little in the second episode, basically turning the order of events around but it still sounds like pacing issues, rushing through and making things more confusing. That means, there aren’t any comparison in this post, only some talk about the first light novel.
