So, I finally got around to playing this game. It's so light and funny and awesome.
As far as the characters go I love Kaitlyn even though she's all sarcastic and beachy X'D Wu is just adorable and he's a sporty guy, BONUS. And Gao, the prim and proper no nonsense guy, uhuhuu, me likey. And Meng, I don't know what to say about her since for some reason she reminds me a LOT of my high school classmate so minor feels trip.
Now that we've got the mindless fangirling out of the way I want to say that I really enjoyed the game. The vocabulary option was great and the hovering button that give the pronunciations was a nice touch. Though it caught me off guard when the voice I was getting used to suddenly changed, lol. Really, I think I might have abused them poor buttons >.<
I for one got pretty fired up trying to memorize all the words so kudos on actually making language learning fun! I don't know if I was so caught up in the game itself or not but I only found 3 of those trivia dragons that randomly appeared even though I SO wanted to stay alert for them.
And ooh, also, I did great well enough
on the QUIZ in the extras section. ^O^)/
Now for the playthrough.
I was trying hard. SO VERY HARD to get into Gao's path. Was plenty distracted with the flow of the story and getting all them Chinese words horded in my brain so I probably didn't pay as much attention as I should have. So when Wu came and was talking and suddenly confessed I was like 'Wait!!! WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED!? Did I read that right? Am I SO CHARMING that the guys can't resist me and will now FIGHT OVER ME?' <-- suffice to say Kaitlyn was rubbing off on me XD So anyway, after getting over it I was busy swooning and the cuteness of it all and wait did he just go announce his love to his Mom? It was so awesome! So much more awesome because it caught me off guard. Wu is my bae, sorry Gao.
So then I replayed the game to get all of Wu's scenes since really he deserved to be pursued all on his own, lol.
Then I went for Gao. My favourite part on his path my Kaitlyn's mother. I mean I didn't think I'd like her since she carted her only daughter off to China and all, but she was so great. Was debating whether to virtually whack him on the head for being a doll controlled by his parents at first (But it's a real thing though, wanting to adhere to your parent's expectation and their dreams of you. It's the very same thing that happens over here. Though the 'lack of approval' is not confined to foreigners but religions and caste and yadda yadda. Sheesh.) But anyways, he more than made up for it in the end. ^^
And the scene with Meng. "So he's 'like' your brother." "Yes, he's my brother." "LIKE your brother." "Yes, my brother." "LIKE!" was really amusing, lol. She's super adorable, will surely go back to play her path once there's more time to kill.
Ah also, I caught this bug on Gao's path Atleast I think it's one (?)
Where basically after you say you like him at the Karaoke and his eyes go all blank. Then suddenly a second Gao magically comes from the left and merges with the Gao at the center. His spirit that got knocked out of his body at the shock of the confession, maybe?
