  1. What were you doing in 2006 - 2009?

    Death row. I escaped, though some wish I hadn't. Kill a guy loudly and messily, during the day, in a public area and weirdly people just won't stop screaming. Then the cops arrive and they're even louder ...
  2. Getchu Bishoujo Game Awards 2017 are out

    The disappointing thing is if no.6 does get translated, it'll likely be of Chusingura quality
  3. Fuwanovel Confessions

    Oh no, proper stalking can only be done in real life. Anything else yields unsatisfactory results. It's on page 1 of the Stalker's Handbook
  4. Fuwanovel Confessions

    Really? I don't see the resemblance to be honest :S Apart from the avatar, I mean.
  5. Been around for almost 5 years now. AMA.

    Out of sheer curiosity, about how many times has Tay broken the forums?
  6. VNs are not books

    RPGs core defining concept are player created stories, or stories that are controlled by the player. Unfortunately when it came time to imitate this genre of games on a computer the technology wasn't at an acceptable place to really include this aspect and so they settled for just importing over the combat sim aspect. That's why all CRPGs have a combat system -> make a cRPG without a combat system and you haven't made a cRPG at all but something which fits nicely in another genre. VNs aren't always about player defined stories. Kinetic stories have no choices, and there are some VNs which require you to go through every route to get the true ending. Because of this RPGs and VNs emphasise two different kinds of stories. RPGs traditionally offered player freedom, "choice and consequence" is something you often hear with Western RPGs, which goes back to the genre's tabletop roots (JRPGs are doing their own thing at the moment.) VNs tend to offer more depth but a more linear story, although they certainly can focus on player freedom as well but it's never been a core aspect of the genre. Adventure games are more similar to VNs than RPGs, imo. The three components needed to make up an adventure game are a narrative, exploration, and puzzles. Remove the gameplay aspects (exploration and puzzles) and you pretty much get what VNs are about (just look at Telltale).
  7. Post pics you like (Powered by Jun Inoue™)

    And a joyous Lupercalia to you
  8. VNS like HunniePop or Booty Calls?

    So smutty stuff with some light gameplay elements? Eiyuu Senki (light strategy) Hunie Cam (light sim from same people who made Hunie Pop) Lightning Raidy (light RPG)
  9. Recommend me a 4~7/10 VN

    Anything by Key (is Angel Beats out yet?) Most Moege (Majikoi and all its sequels) And anything Tiag thinks is 10/10 (what recently released game did he think was absolutely stellar?)
  10. I almost always turn the voices off. I like to read quickly and with voices off I can progress text boxes without having to wait for the voices to finish speaking, because if voices are on and you don't wait for the voices to finish you end up with this sort of scenario:
  11. VNs are not books

    The major reason VNs aren't books is you can't flip to the last chapter and read it first ...
  12. Purple Software's Unique Take on Text Boxes

    Every day in every way, VNs become more and more like interactive comics
  13. How are you not dead yet

      Only the good die young :P

  14. Tayutama 2 -You're the Only One- on Steam

    You should probably just walk away. You can't force advice onto people, and they're clearly not good enough (and don't have the proper mindset) to recognise and take on board the points people are saying so it will just be an exercise in frustration for all involved. Oh hey, congratulations. It's not everyday someone will butcher the sayings of Confucius to score points in an argument you're involved in, you certainly don't get that in conversations with Japanese companies, so that's a positive I guess
  15. Usually games where grades are important are dating sims rather than VNs. Mainly because a school grade is a "stat" and dating sims focus more on raising stats than VNs. You might get one or two VNs where grades are important, but you'd have more luck with dating sim games imo.
