thepatches asked: I’d be really interested in how Mattie defends herself at this point. I’d love for you to post on her column with these criticisms. ;) That said, I am leery of critique that doesn’t come with evidence. Mattie uses the text of the game to build her case, so dismissing it as invalid because “she doesn’t understand” without evidence seems unfair to her.
be thankful you dont have to leave where they cut off your power randomly in the middle of night （；￣ェ￣）
now to type all that again, first i dont like posting randomly, i replied because i followed your blog. secondly implying my critique is invalid and unfair because i didnt quoting and dissecting from a buch of otome games blogs is well pretty dismissing imo. if you have enough interest just take a look at that tumblr, you’ll see the evidence. i’m not blaming you if you dont though, as i wont touch yaoi blog with a pole either. but then that is why i keep quiet and collecting opinion until i know the gist.
then there is the problem of choosing subject as well, would you play a game from the 90s to analyze modern game trend?

I would like to point out that zie’s probably right that my support of Mattie’s article comes from a stance of ignorance on the state of modern Otome games, so I overstepped. Oh well. I will limp forward with this remaining foot.
Hopefully, I can get you all some half-formed drivel on Guilty Crown before I leave for a short vacation.
