  1. What are you playing?

    If you finish it you'll know what I mean.
  2. What are you playing?

    So after a good long spell of hiding under a rock I tried DDLC, which felt like a completely shallow rip off of MYTH. However, I did quite enjoy the mind f**k. But compared to MYTH, which truly was a gem and rather different from what I normally read, I was just left wanting more as it was shorter than a prologue. I'm thinking I may finally begin Higurashi next as I've read elsewhere that its similar to both and could do with a little more mind f**k.
  3. What are you playing?

    Well I finished MYTH after a little work related delay, and thoroughly enjoyed it! It truly was a gem and rather different from what I normally read. I'm thinking I may finally begin Higurashi next as I've read elsewhere that its similar and could do with a little more mind f**k.
  4. What are you playing?

    Reading MYTH and absolutely loving it! Cannot get enough of the track 'Bright Afternoon' (when it gets going), probably going to be sad and make it my ringtone; should anyone decide to ring.
  5. Humble Hot Date Bundle

    I took the plunge for Clannad and G-Senjou no Maou, but the Sunrider 'sims' look interesting too. I've been told I won't be missing much with all ages version of G-Senjou no Maou, that true?
  6. What are you playing?

    Just finished Rakuen, have to say that I wasn't a fan of the Not sure what to move onto next, I should probably restart Ever17.
  7. What are you playing?

    Just finished Meikyuu...
  8. What are you playing?

    I decided not to go back to Chrono clock just yet Wei123 and pushed forward with some Grisaia. I'm not as far through Meikyuu as would have liked, spent far too much time onboard this trip due to broken generator circuits... several full earths I had to chase down. Anyhow I just wanted to say that the first Asako/JB H scene was truly spectacular, genuinely hilarious to the point of weeping eyes in places. I think I'm about halfway so will probably advance onto Rakuen this trip. Although after seeing several fan art CGs I'm really interested in Hapymaher; so maybe that'll be on the cards next (when I'm home).
  9. What are you playing?

    Little Michuru was truely awesome, sad route ending. I did Makoto, Michuru and Misaki, couldn't be arsed with DD, but maybe the weird attempt to be British turn me off; is it worth fighting through just to get Cro's route? Wei, i just noticed you're reading Ef, I loved eden has it got a similar vibe?
  10. What are you playing?

    Long time since I've posted but other things in life had to take precedence. Recently I've read Chrono clock, which I wasn't too fond of the SoL and I felt the routes were weaker than the prologue that hooked me in, I enjoyed Makoto's the most but then I never unlocked Cro's route as I lost interest. I've been continuing with Meikyuu (slowly) but really popped on here to say I had just finished 'Lucy' in a single session binge read which bore the fruits of a Planeterian/Chobits baby! I very much enjoyed it and would love to read similar (I've already been recommended Himawari and Subarashiki elsewhere). I need more onion filled VNs! Also while I'm here and waffling, RiP minori, seriously WTF I loved eden and I was really looking forward to trinoline!
  11. Fate/Grand Order

    But she is literally made of awesome!
  12. Fate/Grand Order

    I just did his first ascention, was surprised to find even the guys get more naked the higher rank they are!
  13. Fate/Grand Order

    I finally gave up waiting for an EU release and grabbed it via APK Pure... my ID is 262.238.547. I've been playing it non stop while I was overseas all of May, was a good time killer while stuck onboard at sea. Just got my 3M DL Ticket... whoop whoop! I'm also quite enjoying this Sanzang event (boobies), anyone know how many volumes in the quest? I'm just about to do volume 6.
  14. Muv Luv Alternative Question

    For the sake of answering the OPs question I agree with Ranzo, just crack on and read it, you won't regret it. However, as both Thyndd and Dreamysyu have discussed it's more complicated than that. Seriously though stick with it, Muv Luv is well worth the time invested!
  15. What are you playing?

    Are Meikyuu and Rakuen what Fate Hollow Ataraxia is to FSN? Just an awesome fan disc with some original content and side stories but no real continuation of the plot? In other news I somehow ended up going down Michiru's route, which I personally feel should have ended when I really enjoyed Eden littleshogun, though the drama is a little forced it was something I just couldn't put down.
  16. What are you playing?

    I've been quite busy lately with work but finally got round to finishing Amane's route in Grisaia... onto Yumiko's next I think.
  17. Help me choose my next VN!

    Fate is worth it just for the Tiger Dojo! If you hop onto Beasts Lair (no links so hope I'll get away with this) Jacktheinfinate101 and co have made the ultimate FSN package putting the new Real Nua stuff into the original and using Resolve/Mirror Moons TL. I've not read this version myself but it looks to be quite epic! Do it for Tohsaka, she is justice!
  18. Another Sekai Project Discussion

    MoeNovel were too busy catering for all the 12 year old French girls were they not? Ahem. Thanks for sharing V, it was an interesting read. I like many others, I have been stung by a SP KS campaign or two, the most horrid of which was for WAS ~Lepidoptera no Sunadokei~ campaign for which they ultimately just gave up with in the end. I just cannot be bothered to go near anything they're involved with anymore, they're a bunch of cowboys and see you next Tuesdays!
  19. What are you playing?

    Why did I click that link... once you see you cannot unsee... maybe links like this should expire after a day or two? I've been reading Grisaia, and I know others complain about the long common route but I'm really enjoying all the day to day stuff. Plus I'm loving that the MC is not some weak moron but someone skilled and with attitude.
  20. I completely agree with what you're saying Kyousuke. I'm also of a similar age (32) and there's no way I can discuss with others about my hobbies without being labelled as weird. That said I believe it's all about your environment and the people that surround you. During my first (and only) research assistant position I found that I could talk to colleagues about these things; although many of my colleagues at the time we're Chinese. Since I had to give up my ambition of a lectureship (due to an unplanned pregnancy) and move into the defence industry for a permanent job there's just no way I can discuss these hobbies with anyone anymore; and I find that unbelievably crushing. Like you said if it's football or rugby then there's conversation, everything else just raises eyebrows.
  21. What are you playing?

    Thanks wei123, since I have up on episode six then I've probably not solved too much. I'll keep the game in my mind, but my back log is sooo big and my reading speed so slow I dunno when/if I'll get around to reading it. I remember looking at the kickstarter page and thinking the game looked like Hellsing and Fate Stay Night had a baby.
  22. I got all excited about Himawari until I read the posts below, thought you were implying it turned into a mind f, shame. While on the subject of shame, sucks that I missed the kickstarter... Guess it'll be another game to add to the wish list for a steam sale.
  23. What are you playing?

    Is it anything like the anime, I literally laughed my ass off when the Oh and while I have you quoted, thanks VirginSmasher for suggesting Saya no Uta in Happeness+'s suggest a short VN thread. It was a truly thrilling and amazing read that I just couldn't put down. So sick and twisted, I was surprised at just how much I enjoyed it. The music that plays every time Saya is on screen as the early story unfolds is just so chilling and really helped convey a sense of unease. Cannot wait, but I'm in work right now!
  24. 2000 post mandatory thread.

    An hour well spent chewing the fat, many thanks @DarkZedge for providing the link! I plan to pop on from time to time to annoy you all, and further descend into corruption and darkness...
  25. What are you playing?

    Thank you so much Dergonu for mentioning Kikokugai, I was amazed at how well the world was explained for such a short VN. For the two evenings I spent reading Kikokugai the story certainly packed a punch! Thanks for sharing your thoughts Thyndd, like you I agree that without fully reading Extra/Unlimited the reader wouldn't be fully invested into the dialogue of Alternative; and therefore not appreciate the overall message. I did consider changing another favourite on VNDB to 9.9 to make MLA sit at the top in my list as it was a truly wonderful reading experience... except the two sleepless nights!
