Chulip



I'm an underworld resident, Michio Suzuki. This is Local Apartment Unit 103.

Anyway, that is not important now. Your love letter is the problem. It was not good. Not at all. Why not? You don't know? It doesn't have your heart in it. You can't write a good love letter like that. If you can write a good love letter...you can kiss her under the legendary tree on the hill.

However, even if you try to write a letter with your heart, your heart is immature and weak. Before you profess your love to her, you need experience. Kiss others to strengthen your heart.

Let's begin your lessons.


Chulip may be the strangest game I've enjoyed. The short-version premise: a kissing RPG. No, it's not a dating sim, nor is it anything like Thousand Arms.

Our hero has met the girl of his dreams, but he must become a skilled kisser before he can win her heart. How does he do this? By kissing everyone else in town...and somehow solving their myriad problems in the process.

Yes, it's as weird as it sounds. But that's precisely why I thought it would be entertaining to play here on Throne of Games. Join Daniel, John, Melissa, Mitch and myself beginning at 7pm ET on Saturday, December 22nd for this bizarre adventure!

Alan Wake - Session 5

Throne of Games continues playing Alan Wake tonight at 7pm ET! Possibly conclusion...or possibly cliffhanger.

Last episode, Alan had just found the Lady of the Light at the old, abandoned power plant, and helped her by cutting the power to the transformer yard so they could travel safely to the Well-Lit Room. What awaits our hero there? Tune in and find out!

As ever, we're streaming on the Radio PSI TwitchTV channel. If you want to chat live with us, point your browser here, or your IRC client here.

Derp Week!

Okay, so the game we'd planned to begin this week didn't quite pan out...that's okay! We have other options! But we didn't want to just pick one of them at the last minute, and get stuck for who-knows-how-long on something that didn't turn out quite the way we'd hoped. So, this week will be a one-off.

Tonight, four of us will be attempting to tackle The Bouncer, a Squaresoft beat-'em-up from 2000. The game's short-ish, and supports multiple players, so I figured it'd be a good way to bring us all in for an episode.

So, The Bouncer was having severe sound issues. ("Boopy-ass game," to borrow a phrase.) So instead, barring further difficulties, we will be playing Rising Zan, a pulpy and melodramatic proto-Devil May Cry set in a strange cross between the Wild West and Feudal Japan. This game is wonderfully terrible; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

New to the team this week are Mitch and Courtney! Give 'em a warm welcome.

As always, we begin at 7pm ET, and you can watch us live on the Radio PSI TwitchTV channel. If you want to join the live chat, either use the chat on this page, or point your preferred IRC client here.

Alan Wake - Session 4

Tonight, we continue Alan Wake on Throne of Games! Tune in to the Radio PSI TwitchTV channel at 7pm ET and check it out!

When we left our hero, Alan had escaped from the darkness-plagued sanitarium with the help of Barry, and was making his way through the woods to the farm. What will he find there...?
