I’m done with my first route! And happy because I got the exact ending I wanted.
This post contains spoilers for Code: Realize ~Guardian Of Rebirth~ so… don’t read it if you plan to play it!!
Ok as far as the actual story, I didn’t see the Azoth twist coming. I feel dumb. I should have.
Back to the love story part, even when I profess my love for an absolute asshole, sweet Impey is as much of a sweetheart as ever:
He’s just such a good egg! I’m definitely going to try for his good ending next.
The protagonist and I share the trait of utterly pathetic stubbornness:
By this point I was still into Val Helsing, but also so annoyed by how much of an asshole he is, that I was disappointed that I didn’t get to fulfill this promise:
Ok so his reasons for talking this way are good, but you have to realize, he’s still kinda bad in the epilogue. Which, in fairness, is just him being himself.
I was 100% sure I was locked onto a bad ending at this point. I mean…
I was *pretty* sure it was just to scare me off, but then again visual novels are weird sometimes. I was right though. This scene was my favorite in the game.
I should mention that both Van Helsing and the protagonist are kinda made for each other in the sense that they are both terrible people to date. The protagonist is SO clingy and annoying. He is SO possessive and just always annoyed and kinda mean. Which probably explains why I picked him.
I guess other than the typos and Queen Victoria, my one issue with the game somehow is that Van Helsing tries to commit suicide but decides that he won’t die because… I cried? Like okay, I guess knife to the chest is alright after all? I know you’re a tough cookie, Abraham, but… that stretched the imagination a little.
Thanks, can you please not give me a serial killer look as you say that?
Credits roll after that followed by a sweet little epilogue which addresses the fact that we can’t bang (or even kiss) because I’m still, you know, LITERALLY POISONOUS, which is okay because apparently I also don’t know what sex even is; also, he really wants to have sex with me and finding a way to do that is basically his most important goal now; ALSO, he won’t let me out of the house because I’m too pretty (fuck you, Van Helsing.) Still, it was all fairly sweet. I got the ending I wanted.
I’ll be working on Impey’s route next though, because he was so nice. I’m having so much fun with this game, and blogging about it is as much fun as playing it.
