  1. Not surprised this didn't sell well. I didn't buy it, the aspect ratio and resolution are way too out of date. Other things that keep me away from it are multiple protagonists, cut content, and the art doesn't look all that good. I put a lot of emphasis on the 'visual' part of visual novel. You can have the best story in the world, but if I don't like the art I find myself having very little motivation to play it.
  2. lol funny how a simple flip can throw you off so much When I first started typing this post I was wondering why it wasn't working or if my keyboard broke, but eventually I realized it was on the right side XD
  3. How old is "old" for a VN?

    1. Old to me is a VN that doesn't use a widescreen aspect ratio and isn't running a resolution of at least 720p. Yes I realize that still happens in new VNs, but look at it this way. Modern day TV's or monitors are pretty much all 720p or higher and are widescreen. So making a VN with a lower resolution means you are targeting OLD outdated resolutions and aspect ratios that just need to die already. So in my book they can be considered old. Still waiting for VN's to start hitting a native 1080p resolution. Why is Japan so far behind when it comes to standards like this? 2. I don't have an age limit for VN's it mostly comes down to the visuals. 3. I've only read 1 VN from before 2001 which was Kana Little Sister. Loli and incest can you blame me for wanting to read it? 4. Story wise they can age well, technical though I would have to say no. That may change once we start reaching resolutions where the pixel density alone negates the need for anti aliasing which makes going higher resolution becomes meaningless.
  4. What is the most garbage VN you ever read?

    I've never completed a VN I didn't like. I saw all the CGs for Ikinari Anata ni Koishiteiru thanks to the ctrl button but I couldn't bring myself to read it all. Hated every heroine in it.
  5. I'm not really trying to force them to add 18+ content they'll survive without me buying it I'm sure. As others have mentioned though I find it weird that a company that is known for it's 18+ content and have a consumer base mostly focused on things like that would choose to do an All Ages VN for their 10th anniversary. Kinda feels like a betrayal to be honest.
  6. They do mention the scenes will more so be bonus content you unlock rather than be a part of the story. Which is disappointing to me, but I'll take what I can get. Point being it won't affect the game in a negative way if you don't care for the h-scenes.
  7. Mangagamer has released a new update on their blog with a poll regarding 18+ content for Koropokkur. For those of you who wish to see this happen head on over there. http://blog.mangagamer.org/2018/03/06/koropokkur-page-is-now-live-on-kickstarter/
  8. Can Visual Novels really change you?

    While I've never experienced a change like this from a VN I do believe they can impact someone this heavily. Pretty much any form of entertainment can impact someone like this(music, movies, tv series, book, etc). I feel like it's more likely to happen if you are younger or are going through a harder time in your life.
  9. I said 18+ versions not patch. I'm fully aware that their new stuff don't have 18+ versions. I'm mostly referring to Little Busters where they didn't release the Ecstasy Edition in English or should they translate Kud Wafter to English I would only read the 18+ version of it. I might as well just watch the anime instead since their is nothing to motivate me to go and read the VN instead.
  10. Never read a KEY VN. Should someone release an 18+ version for one of them maybe I'll get to see what all the fuss is about. Until then I'll keep avoiding the companies VNs.
  11. I don't really mind if companies use Kickstarter it just allows for more VNs in the west. But seeing this is an All Age VN I have no interest at all. I expected more from Manga Gamer...
  12. In the case of VNs I don't read any that do not have voices. It's one the bigger reasons I don't read OELVN. I know budget this, money that, they can't afford to have voices. To me that sounds like they don't have confidence in their product and aren't willing to risk some money. At the bare minimum all of the heroines need to be fully voiced. They make everything better provided they aren't poorly done.
  13. No I wouldn't. I know I've mentioned this before, but I read VNs because they can have a good balance between plot and porn. If you watch a hentai anime it's mostly porn with very little plot. The same is also true in hentai manga. Also I should mention that plot doesn't necessarily mean a complicated story it can also just be the daily SoL stuff as welll. VNs give you time to connect and get to know the characters before throwing the porn at you, something the other 2 mediums don't do(hopefully one day they will). I would love to watch a 24 episode hentai anime, but only 3 of those episodes have sex scenes. Sadly though that doesn't exist so I read VN's to get something akin to that.
  14. When I've read all the routes I'm interested in. No option for it so I figured I'd post it. An example would be Hatsukoi 1/1 where I read all routes except for Kyou because her pizza obsession annoyed me.
  15. My 1st VN was Kana Little Sister back in 2005. 2nd would be G-Senjou no Maou in 2014 3rd was Muv Luv, Unlimited, and Alternative(I'm gonna count these 3 as 1 as I pretty much binge played them over the course of 2 weeks and they are essentially a series). Also read this in 2014. It was G-Senjou and Muv Luv that really made me become a VN fan, which resulted in me reading a crap load of VNs between 2014-2015. 4th was Grisaia no Kajitsu in 2014(the fan patch version). 5th was Natsukumo Yururu read it using a machine translator (it's also where my avatar is from). Despite using a machine translator I really liked it and to this day I hope to see it get translated to English.
