Let me preface this review by saying I’ve always felt that if you’re looking to be offended by something, you more than likely will succeed in doing so. This relates to the Sony Vita game/Nintendo 3DS (I played Vita), Conception II, in that I’ve read many reviews decrying the “smutty dating sim” portions of the game dragging down the JRPG portions of the game and that if only the scandalous sim relationship portions of the game were removed, it would be an otherwise enjoyable RPG.

The puzzles are constructed around planning the steps you want to do and then timing them just right to pull them off.

However, this time I feel like the rage topic has hit very close to home and I can’t let it pass me by. I am a woman and I work in the video games industry as a technical developer. I’ve been doing it for 6 years now.
