  1. Not saying Dies Irae is a bad VN, but the protag certainly doesn't strike out as unique/capable (aside from the chunni-ness way into the routes). The game stands out because of everyone but the protag IMO (similar to MLA) I know you hate Aiyoku no Eustia, but surely Caim gets a mention at least?
  2. Here are mine: 1. don't read two at the same time 2. do not look for your next vn until you are nearly finishing the current 3. ctrl over h-scenes (unless plot related) 4. take mini breaks, where there's a good spot like an intermission/end of chapter, stop, take a 2-3 min break, then back to it. Helps with going through slow SoL sections which tend to be written this way. 5. Don't read at auto mode, voice acting is great during interesting spots but it really slow you down in reading during the uninteresting spots. 6. Give yourself a mini goal especially after th
  3. What about CharaBration from Akabei Soft3? Though it feels like an average Love-Comedy with Trap Protag reading the summary.
  4. June Release choices: Erewhon Shukusei no Girlfriend Minikui Mojika no Ko Did you mean July Release Choices?
  5. Akumade, kore wa ~ monogatari is quite a strange vn. It starts great but it gets more boring and confusing the more you read it, eventually... (minor spoiler) I'd prefer Etatoto over it for mystery fans just because this is an extremely frustrating read for a good portion of the vn. Happy for me to share my thoughts with full spoilers in a pm for your blog if you want.
  6. Pretty sure those special looking CGs are on purpose to match the atmosphere. I didn't pick out too big of a difference between the hcg vs normal cgs. Personally I thought the story could use a little bit more slice of life after the op shows up (saying the reason would be spoiler) to hint the mystery rather than what it had done though. Text hookers don't work on the game though, that's a downer for people relying on them.
  7. I think everyone is over thinking it. What do people say as experienced as other mediums? like Film or books? Just need to be at it for a while. When you start comparing this VN with another you can probably be counted in the experienced group. Ignoring Nukiges, the average casual VN reader may not have read as much as most people on these forums.

    Yuusha vs Eiyuu

    I see yuusha as more like your average jrpg protag/group saving the world and eiyuu as someone/group who perform(ed) heroic deeds. If that's a more simpler explanation - its definitely not an easy one for the translator
  9. First 10 - it's quite easy since I keep the save games so I just look at the modify dates. - Planetarian (around 2007 - I don't think I know this is a VN back then) - Ever 17 (2010) - 999 (2010) - Remember 11 (2011) - Wanko to Kurasou (2011 - one route only before I dropped it) - Umineko (2011) - Umineko Chiru (2012) - Chaos;Head (2012) - Never7 (2013) - Steins;Gate (2013) If you count Ace Attorney as VNs - they would fill up #2 to #5 (1st to 4th game)
  10. Seconding this, the length indicator in vndb/egs is not always accurate - some of the Medium length VNs I've read in default auto mode definitely goes way higher than 30 hours. Flowchart is nice but sometimes you just don't want to be spoiled, maybe after you finish all the routes.
  11. I like to compare this to movies/tv shows/anime, sometimes you just happen to be reminded (through conversations or discussions) about a particular scene which will cause you to go and rewatch it in say an evening as the commitment there is only around a few hours - with tv shows and anime there's the big temptation to fast forward to the interesting scenes on rewatches. With VNs it's much harder as I find that a majority of plot/interesting scenes seem to stick and other trivial/unimportant/uninteresting scenes fade. I definitely wouldn't want to re-read 20hours of boring stuff just to r
  12. Christmas/New Year holidays gave me extra time to read, recently finished Yurameku Kokoro ni Michita Sekai de, Kimi no Yume to Yokubou wa Kanau ka - longest non nukige name VN I've read so far. To those who wants to read this VN, be careful of spoilers - once you've been spoiled, a few routes are literally unplayable as it hinges on the fact that you have yet to work out what's going on. I also recommend the following route order for optimal enjoyment if you plan to play all the routes. Tomoe -> Tsukino -> Sumire/Konoha (just make sure these are read after the other two) F
  13. Finished Baldr Bringer... in short, it's wasted potential due to bad execution, the player is rewarded with some plot too late. The game is very different to sky/heart where you don't actually follow a flowchart story of events happening to the Protag. Firstly a bit of a rant on the game mechanics. There will be some very minor spoilers here on how the game is structured but shouldn't ruin your experience should you end up playing this game. That's all the game mechanics (rant) out of the way, here comes the more spoilerish area, plot, the problem with talking about the plot in thi
  14. having actually read what you're asking for - a chapter summary won't get you the insight for Muramasa's character I had a look on the broken link at the archive, which points you to chapter 1 (SPOILER ALERT) I don't think all the chapters are done though, and that chapter 1 probably have the least amount of interaction with Muramasa out of them all lol
  15. I wonder how they'll handle the voice only parts, not like they can just write both translations on the screen as some voice only parts are way longer than the text box.
