  1. Imitating the styles of your favourite writers when you are just starting is perfectly normal and most people do it. The reason everybody says writers should read a lot is that you're finding out what you like and what you don't from the styles you're reading, what works for you and what doesn't. Once you start writing a lot your style will naturally develop and be refined further into something more your own. If you're imitating a style you hate though just because you read something recently, maybe wait a week or so before you start writing or maybe read something you like before you start writing. Being a sponge though, with regards to style, isn't a bad thing though.
  2. Sorry for the necro of this topic, I don't really have much time to browse internet topics anymore unforch so I'm out of touch with quite literally everything. Keeping in mind that you're looking for well articulated, thought provoking and generally enlightened responses for this topic, I will say I think the use of AI in creative fields (as someone who works in the creative fields) is the suckiest suck that ever did suck, it sucks, boy does it suck, oh wow does it ever suck, who the hell thought of this because they really do suck?!?!?! I mean, we know that this eventually will help small creators put out works on par to large creators, but we all know that large companies, which has a fiduciary duty to their shareholders, which means it's their duty to look for ways to make their shareholders money, in their all consuming bid to not just make a modest profit but try and make all the profits, then increase their share of all the profit again next year, will of course look to cut staff and use AI wherever they can. Which oneups their tendency to cut staff and foist their work onto everyone remaining for no extra pay by a considerably wide margin. It's why the writers guild in Hollywood went on strike. It's incredibly scary and worrying for everyone. Good for the consumer sure, but it's likely to put a lot of people out of work. I can't be on AI's side in this.
  3. What I'm seeing on Steam is that "Paradise Project" has been around for at least a couple of years: https://store.steampowered.com/search/?publisher=Paradise Project https://store.steampowered.com/search/?publisher=SakuraGame
  4. There has been 1 good operating system released by MS in the past 15 years and haha ... guess which one you didn't get xD
  5. *Looks up VNDB* Third party narration? That's so up my alley! Breathing the fourth wall? ... that's not quite so up my alley! Metafiction? Not really a fan. Comedy? Eh, Confucius said laughing's overrated. "Magic and technology co-exist" - Well, okay, that pushes quite a few of my buttons. SOLD!
  6. If you want drama, visit the linux community and encourage them to pull the "kill switch" for shits and giggles
  7. Was watching Restaurant to Another World and a crepe was cut up like this: Then fairies picked up the portions to eat, like this: Tsk, tsk, tsk
  8. TNW recently spoke to lovers and haters of the Copyright Reform in-depth, but the controversy of the proposed reform can be boiled down to two contested articles, number 11 and 13 — which would effectively establish link tax, censorship machines, and ban memes. Article 11 (a.k.a. link tax) would force anyone using snippets of journalistic online content to get a license from the publisher first — essentially outlawing current business models of most aggregators and news apps. This can also possibly threaten the hyperlink and give power to publishers at the cost of public good. Article 13 (a.k.a. censorship machines) will make platforms responsible for monitoring user behavior to stop copyright infringements, but basically means only huge platforms will have the resources to let users comment or share content. There’s a worry that this could lead to broader censorship, with free speech vehicles — like parody, satire, or even protest videos — potentially untenable under this system. https://thenextweb.com/eu/2018/09/11/eu-parliamen-copyright-reform-internet-censorship-machines-link-tax/ Other problematic measures were passed as well, including Article 12a, which prohibits sports fans from posting their own photos or videos of sporting events online, while stating that only event “organizers” have the right to do so. https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/3kenb8/the-eu-can-still-be-saved-from-its-internet-wrecking-copyright-plan Good job EU. Nice work. We all hate your guts. Please retire.
  9. I just got this game. First thoughts ... I'm really digging this. It's a really flowing, light read and they've done a great job with the translation. It makes me think Nekonyan will be right up my alley.
  10. I'd say "Happy Birthday, Fiddle" but birthdays don't count when you're younger than 5. You're too young[1] to enjoy them. And I bought this bottle of scotch for you too. Guess I'll just have to drink it myself :3 [1]After the age of 30 you're getting too old to enjoy them. Oh those blissful 25 years or so of happy birthdays ...

  12. There's a lot of hype around Hello Lady! I might pick it up. Looks like a fun ride. Aokana looks a bit more like the usual VN fare. I don't think it's for me.
  13. If the dull phase goes on long enough that I no longer want to continue reading, I drop it and pick up something else. Life's too short to read genre fiction (stories meant to entertain) out of some weird obligation, or vague promise that it might get better well into the future.
  14. I'm sure Hobibox is also looking for any opportunity to bring more of their unique take on localisation to the West. They may also rescue some titles
