  1. VNs you are waiting for translations~

    I also couldn't help but notice Koiken Otome, which appears to have both beautiful art and kick ass ladies. How could I refuse?
  2. VNs you are waiting for translations~

    Dangan Ronpa 2, but that's gonna be a long time, I'm sure. I might actually have to just read the LP.
  3. What are you playing?

    Dangan Ronpa has totally consumed my life.
  4. Mangagamer polls VN fans about interest in Euphoria

    Rapelay, IIRC, wasn't so much a visual novel as a flat-out rape simulation game. You could follow the girls around, then kidnap them, knock them up, etc. It was pretty intense. It received the attention it did because of its ability to be purchased on English-speaking Amazon, according to Wikipedia. How people can crucify games like this but then play things such as Manhunt doesn't really make sense to me.
  5. Playing VN

    I sort of feel the same way? Sometimes I'll pick up a VN because of its erotic value and then I start to get into the story and think of the sex scenes as more of a chore. But I suppose that's what the CG catalogue/scene play options are for
  6. If you could pick any car...

    I want the pussy wagon from Kill Bill.
  7. Your Worst VN Experience

    Jewel Knights Crusaders, while being one of my first visual novels and holding a special place in my heart, probably contained two of my worst: The loli route was full of the usual high-pitched wailing and gross bloody deflowering, and the villain route was filled with pissing and I believe domination? It was all very gross.
  8. Gameplay in Visual Novels

    What are your thoughts on traditional gameplay elements in visual novels? Do you like them? Do you feel they're unnecessary? Would adding more of these elements to visual novels increase their popularity in the west? While somewhat niche, Agarest Wars and Phoenix Wright have managed to appeal to a lot of people. Personally, I really enjoy games that can mix gameplay and traditional VN elements. Particularly in action genre- sound effects and flashing blades are great, but actually getting to do a fight is even better. One of my favorite parts of Princess Waltz was the fact that all of the intense fights that were described were accompanied with a card battle fight. And (on normal) those things were pretty tough, and felt appropriate. Everyone else?
  9. Animal Crossing

    I got the game on the first day of release, and I've been playing almost daily. It's nice to have a game that you can play daily, without worrying about having to 'finish' it. I've been working mostly on paying off the house debts at the moment, though I should start buying more furniture to wake up that stupid llama. I want that gem furniture.
  10. Mangagamer polls VN fans about interest in Euphoria

    I read a couple reviews and most people seem to be praising it, but.. Even with the ability to censor the scat scenes I could never really find myself entertained by this, regardless of how good the story may be. I'm quite fascinated by things such as Saw, Battle Royale, and Dangan Ronpa, but when you combine the violence and bathroom aspects with sex and humiliation, it's just too much for me. I would read a summary online of the plot, but nothing more. Nothing against those who want to read it, of course. However, if this does get released, I hope it's not one of those things that casts the VN community in a negative light. I feel like this is a title internet journalists would swarm. Not that that's a reason to prevent a localization. I'm quite intrigued to see if it will drum up enough interest for MangaReader to follow through. I feel like at this point I'm rambling, sorry.
  11. Mangagamer polls VN fans about interest in Euphoria

    Out of morbid curiosity I decided to look up a little bit about the game, and...frankly I'm appalled. This goes beyond Saw's "totally fucked up but still entertaining" boundaries and heads straight into flat-out snuff. It doesn't even seem like the 'psychological thriller' it's been described as. I'm not even sure I could be compelled to try it. As for the poll, I would vote, but it seems you must be registered, and making an account just for one poll seems unnecessary.
  12. Fan Translator Skills Registration

    Handle (the one you use or plan to use): Twitchycolt Positions you can fill: Editor, Proofreader Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Modern Fantasy (Princess Waltz, Fate series), standard fantasy, comedy, horror, mystery Availability (edit this one as you get involved in projects): I'm completely free at the moment. VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Nothing specific at the moment, but I would love for there to be more English games with male/male romance available. Motivation for joining in on ftl: I've always had an interested in translation since I was young and just starting to get into anime. I hope to become fluent in Japanese or Korean out of a desire to translate as a career, but in the meantime I would like to help however I can! Conditions (any additional conditions, under which you will or won't work): No snuff or rape scenes. I'm also not very interested in titles with high f/f sexual content, but romance is fine.
  13. Ikusa Megami Zero: A project?

    Wow, that sounds like a nightmare. Did you happen to receive the PM I sent? I'm still interested in working as an editor if you need one.
  14. I'm actually not familiar with this term- what is a "TLC"?
  15. Tabletop Games

    I do some tabletop roleplaying, mostly Pathfinder and Marvel Heroics. As for card games, I play a little big of magic, but Yugioh is really more my choice. And while not really traditional, Gloom is an excellent card game that my friends and I always have fun playing. Board games...it varies. I really don't have the patience to sit through a whole game of Monopoly, and a lot of the interesting looking ones run up to $50. For anyone interested in tabletop gaming though, I would definitely recommend the show "Tabletop" on Youtube, produced by Wil Wheaton.
