Ai Sensei no Oshiete: Watashi no Hoshi (NES) review


"Boredom… It’s something every man on earth experiences at least once in his/her lifetime, and to those who have experienced it, they know that it can be pure torture. Boredom is a curse spread by the arms of stagnation and pointlessness. It leaves the soul feeling empty and drab, the mind vacant and weary, crying desperately for some sort of stimulation. "



Boredom… It’s something every man on earth experiences at least once in his/her lifetime, and to those who have experienced it, they know that it can be pure torture. Boredom is a curse spread by the arms of stagnation and pointlessness. It leaves the soul feeling empty and drab, the mind vacant and weary, crying desperately for some sort of stimulation.

Man does many things to cure boredom. Play sports, watch TV, read a book, even play the occasional video game. But when true boredom sets in, that undying relentless nothingness… seeking to be filled with something anything whatever it takes to feel again. That’s when you’d do anything.

It’s boredom that leads to this: playing games like Ai Sensei no Oshiete: Watashi no Hoshi, a longwinded title for a roundabout game. This is a horoscope simulator. What’s more, it’s a love horoscope simulator. Further, it’s a love horoscope simulator in Japanese. While that’s all well and good for they who can read the language, for us English speakers, it just provides mild entertainment as we figure out what random menu options give us and watch as pretty Japanese kanji scroll across the screen.

As our stereotypical unrealistically attractive fortune teller sits on the moon, gazing at the stars, inquiring about birthdays, signs, and God knows what else (how should I know? It’s in Japanese!), we stare at nothing but illegible rolling script, wondering why the bloody hell we’re even doing this. And then we remember: “Oh, right. We’re bored.”

Rating: 1/10

The creepy music pervasive throughout every room, hallway and tunnel keeps you on-edge, expecting something - anything - to ambush you at any moment. Whether it’s the flock of mutant crows that crash through the windows of the second storey, or the rabid dog that bursts through the mirror in the interrogation room, you...

Level designs often pair different sorts of beasts and toss them into a compact space. In Alpine Ridge, you’ll face armored rooster people that try to smack you with their scepters. In the same general vicinity, you’ll also encounter grotesque bears and druids that have a habit of moving platforms around.
