The third English game to be released by Voltage, Seduced In The Sleepless City was something I really looked forward to, mainly because of Noel Aijima. I have always been a gearhead and I was very curious to see how they would portray the world of Formula One.

As with AKD, I was profoundly disappointed that Voltage stopped updating this game. I had always thought that this was one of their more popular games, and I saw all the updates to the Japanese version so I never imagined that this would be put in the back burner.

I wondered why the updates stopped coming and I’m guessing it’s due to piracy. What I’m curious to know is that how come the other games are still getting updates? Can’t they port the system to whatever the others are on (like the iPad versions)?

Actually sent officialvoltageotome an ask about this some time ago. I hope Senpai notices me because I REALLY want this game back!

I was so very excited when A Knight’s Devotion first came out. I’ve always had a weakness for “princess” stories as a young girl and I apparently carried that into adulthood. And so when this was released, I immediately purchased all the available routes (if i remember correctly, it was Lute and Haku).

I was sadly disappointed with the stories, though. I expected more romance, more intrigue, more… just more, I guess. I don’t really know how to explain it but they left me feeling unsatisfied. And so this game was pushed to my backlog list, although I kept on purchasing the stories.

When I noticed that the updates stopped coming however, I felt rather annoyed because if there’s one thing I hate it’s leaving something unfinished and that’s what this was. At the back of my mind, I’d held out hope that the rest of the stories would get better (after all, I’d only read two), so having it end like that just made me lose any motivation I had to read the rest of the routes.

Facing it here again during VNW, I might just give it a go. Maybe Ken, Shion or Gaia will change my mind… and my heart.

chiapeto, sorry I keep posting ahead, different timezone here. It’s 12:30 in the morning so I’m technically on schedule.

Report: Honeybee Death Rate Is Currently Too High for Survival of the Species         

foresthoney:

divacuppa:

A government report released last week surprisingly admits that the honeybee species are dying off at a rate too high to ‘guarantee their long term survival’.

It has been well proven that the primary factor leading to this extinction is the presence of neonicotinoid poisons, of course present in insecticides sold by and/or used by corporations such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dupont and their products. A recent study from Harvard, published on March 27th of this year, has definitively confirmed what scientists outside the US have been saying for years: neonicotinoids are the [emphasis added] cause of colony collapse disorder(CCD). The study showed that 50% of colonies populated by bees who had been in contact with these pesticides collapsed, compared to only 1 in 6 who were not in contact with neonicotinoids.

The European Union understands that the death of honeybees is an unprecedented death for human beings and mother earth, as they have banned neonicotinoid poisons.

However, American powers refuse to believe the problem is neonicotinoid insecticides and they continue to be in use here.

These corporations with armies of lobbyists and politicians bought and paid for, like  Monsanto, are playing dumb and suggesting that ‘mites’ are the cause for the death rate of honeybees, a problem so bad that it means their extinction if they continue on this path. This is dangerous anti-science rhetoric, borderline scientific denialism from the American agro-chemical establishment. 

Well, did mites cause the honeybees to go extinct in the approximate 14 million years they survived here before humans invented neonicotinoid chemicals? Of course not. It seems only things as foreign to Earth as neonicotinoids can cause such a drastic loss of crucial life on our planet and the solution is obvious; inform people that if we keep allowing the honeybees to die at this rate, we will be literally without almost all of the fruits we enjoy. Oh and stop using neonicotinoids.

If we don’t seriously stop this soon, then a corporation like Monsanto would likely take advantage of the lack of bees to pollinate and create fruit, and attempt to monopolize the products of nature because the fruits will then require individual, manual pollination or more complex measures. While this may seem far fetched, in the absence of honeybees and acknowledging that manual pollination is highly labor intensive, micro pollinator drones may be in our future if something is not done to save the bees.

If you are reading this, there is a good chance absolutely none of this information is new. If the bees are not nursed back to health as a species, say goodbye to these things- (unless you want genetically modified, manually pollinated products of Monsanto in the wake of the extinction of the honeybee): Apples Mangos Rambutan Kiwi Fruit Plums Peaches Nectarines Guava Rose Hips Pomegranites Pears Black and Red Currants Alfalfa Okra Strawberries Onions Cashews Cactus Prickly Pear Apricots Allspice Avocados Passion Fruit Lima Beans Kidney Beans Adzuki Beans Green Beans Orchid Plants Custard Apples Cherries Celery Coffee Walnut Cotton Lychee Flax Acerola – used in Vitamin C supplements Macadamia Nuts Sunflower Oil Goa beans Lemons Buckwheat Figs Fennel Limes Quince Carrots Persimmons Palm Oil Loquat Durian Cucumber Hazelnut Cantaloupe Tangelos Coriander Caraway Chestnut Watermelon Star Apples Coconut Tangerines Boysenberries Starfruit Brazil Nuts  Beets Mustard Seed Rapeseed Broccoli Cauliflower Cabbage Brussels Sprouts Bok Choy (Chinese Cabbage) Turnips Congo Beans Sword beans Chili peppers, red peppers, bell peppers, green peppers Papaya Safflower Sesame Eggplant Raspberries Elderberries Blackberries Clover Tamarind Cocoa Black Eyed Peas Vanilla Cranberries Tomatoes Grapes

can’t say no one predicted this

down with monsanto

Our food system is extremely dependent on honey bees, if they die out, it’s going to start to collapse. Smash Big Agro before it’s too late.

This stuff gives me so much anxiety to even look at, but what do we DO about it??

This is what you do:

-Plant flowers and buy your seeds from organic places that sell heirloom varieties (study shows 51% of seeds at places like Home Depot and Lowe’s are contaminated with neonics)
- Plant a garden, grow your own food. If you can’t, buy local from your farmers market or at the very least buy organic (especially almonds, cherries and other fruits and nuts heavily dependant on pollination of bees because bees are actually trucked in to pollinate these crops)
- Pay attention to what’s in your food and where it’s coming from. Read The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan.
- Write to your Senators and State Representatives, there are plenty of scientific research papers to back your position (I’m on mobile or I’d link you)
- Support local beekeepers that don’t use pesticides and fungicides. Buy their honey. Or, get your own hive (check with local ordinances, sometimes they are not allowed in the city)

Apparently you can “marry” the protags in PQ? LOL…

The joke is based on the one in my previous comic. Ryoji’s not in the game, I think, but I can pretend he’s there in spirit.
