  1. inb4 Frontwing just leaves the western market entirely instead of developing an 18+ distribution platform If Valve goes back and retroactively "re-rates" games, a lot of VNs could potentially be on the chopping block. This sucks quite a bit for companies that haven't fully invested in their own distribution platform. Guess it's just another lesson about relying on Steam to distribute VNs.
  2. Books!

    Picked up Bram Stoker's Dracula after reading an excerpt of it in my English class and loving it. I like Stoker's prose quite a bit, and I've always been interested in classic vampire literature, so being made to read that excerpt was quite a happy coincidence.
  3. I doubt I'm in the majority here, but I will literally never touch this game as long as it's only available on Steam. I have people I know in real life on my friends list, and there's no way I'll publically buy a tentacle rape game, censored or not, on a platform where they can see that I own it. I'm also not going to make another Steam account because, quite frankly, I don't want to, and I shouldn't have to.
  4. Myth Ost

    Just letting you know, it's against Fuwanovel's rules to ask for or provide links to or sources for pirated content. You worded your post rather ambiguously, and I'd appreciate it if you edited it to rule out pirated or illegal sources. As far as I can tell, no physical or digital OST exists. You might have to dump the game files for the sound files the game uses.
  5. About being a translator.

    Okay, this is getting too personal and off-topic to belong in this thread. Please take this to PMs if you guys want to hash this out.
  6. What was the worst online argument you ever been in?

    Can you guys take your debate on the gayness of traps somewhere else? It's getting a bit excessive >.< I think the worst argument I've been in was one that resulted in threats of physical harm. I said that I liked strong women, and the other guy just hated my opinion lol
  7. Trolling, The HMN Crew, and You

    This is a pretty good suggestion, @tymmur. The gif bats posted was pretty gentle compared to similar vibrating gifs, like the one kiri posted. I don't know that many people that have similar problems with those types of gifs. It might be a good idea to get that problem checked out.
  8. New Moenovel title announced (Adventure of a Lifetime)

    They don't have any in-house translators, they contract out to third party translation companies. The quality varies so wildly because it depends on who is working at the company they contract out to at the moment. MoeNovel has very few permanent staff members, from what I've heard; "skeleton crew" might be an apt description, if what I heard is correct.
  9. Ass Creed 4: Black Flag

    I actually muted the game and just listened to music while I ran around killing shit. I had no idea what was going on at all, but I don't think it really mattered all that much xD
  10. Another Sekai Project Discussion

    I'm assuming that you're just shitposting, but I actually went and counted each unreleased title Sekai (I'm including Denpasoft and non-JP titles that aren't in English, because they're most likely translating them) and MangaGamer have. Sekai: 30 titles (not including the secret announcements they added to their tracker) MangaGamer: 22 titles (I'm not including DLC, and I'm not including the titles they hinted at but didn't announce yet) I'm not too sure if this list is comprehensive, and I'm too lazy to double-check : P
  11. Another Sekai Project Discussion

    Just to clarify, I didn't actually write the article, I just stumbled upon it and shared the link. I doubt you meant that the article was mine, but I just thought I'd make sure. I'm pretty much done with Sekai at this point. All of their early controversies and bad PR (hi, dovac) really made me distrust them as a company for years. After seeing improvements in regards to 18+ releases and transparency, I decided that I should toss some money their way to reward their progress. Buying Meikyuu didn't come back to bite me, but backing Hoshimemo sure as hell did. If they couldn't even give Hoshimemo, a relatively high-profile title with an established audience, a decent release, it's indicative of some pretty serious problems somewhere down the line. I wouldn't recommend buying anything they touch that doesn't have a well-known name (like Conjueror or koestl) attached, and even that's not a guarantee, since they've shown that their editing and QC process can range from good to completely horrid. At the very least, don't back any Kickstarters that have Sekai's name on them, since it's almost a guarantee that they'll have issues and a horribly delayed delivery window for rewards. Grisaia physicals when Muramasa TL hits, boys. Might as well bring the Root Double Vita debacle back up, while we're at it. I still can barely believe that even happened. The incompetence that was required to arrive at that situation is just absurd.
  12. You almost never hear it worded that way, though. The first person usually asks, "Do you care if I do x?", and the second person responds with yes or no, usually with something like "go ahead" or "feel free" attached. You don't respond with, "No, I don't care if you do x," which is indeed rather abrasive. Here in Freedom Land (or at least my part of California), we basically use those two phrases interchangeably. I wouldn't say it's weird to hear either one.
  13. I thought Degica's MuvLuv team pretty much abandoned Degica entirely when they split from Ixtl, and that they all joined Ixtl as their in-house team. Don't have a source for that, but there's this tweet.
