  1. What is your favorite Season in VNs?

    I did too. It was immersive... and a bit cringey, since the game is so-so.
  2. Do you think gamers should focus on finishing their pending games before purchasing more games?
  3. What is your favorite Season in VNs?

    The season I'm in. I find it a bit jarring to have cloudless blue skies on my novel where outside my window it's raining buckets. Plus, the temperature it's supposed to be. It's called IMMERSION.
  4. Sol Press 2019 Licensing Survey

    I voted for the good old one-tw... good old Hatsuyuki Sakura.
  5. Off the top of my head you have one in Newton and the Apple Tree, with the japanese girl. If you'd like to find more, use the filters in VNDB.
  6. VNs with other couples?

    There's Quartett, where there's even secondary character intercourse. That content is minimal, though.
  7. I have lost faith in VN

    Aren't you expecting a bit too much out of a medium for entertainment? Do you think a Marvel superhero movie can change your life? I don't. To change your life you need to do a lot of reflecting as well as trial and error. Fiction can help you reflect but only barely. It won't provide the real action to change, and not even the motivation, most of the time. In the end, salvation lies in the people. The people who are right for you.
  8. As for story I'm having great hope in Lynne (Ebi hime is a good writer), and some otome games that try a fuzzier approach to romance (and drama) than what is usual.
  9. The appeal of heterochromia?

    I really liked when Katawa Shoujo deconstructed that, they had a pink-haired girl, but it turns out it was dyed.
  10. Well, it's Key making non-Key for people who don't like Key works. Like Pillars of Sawyer Eternity and Baldur's Gate. Not a lot of surprise here. PS: In VNDB lots of people rate games like they're the best ever, even if they're crap or horribly generic.
  11. Any version you choose, be prepared to expend some months. I played it whole in two different, consecutive years because Lucia's route barely killed my interest in the game. I still don't rate it highly, and find that, like most of recent Key works (anime and VN), it has almost as many good things as bad things. Harmonia is an exception, because it's a simpler and cleaner story. You can definitely enjoy Rewrite, but you probably won't rate it a masterpiece. There are some facepalm moments too -like that "famous" Kotori quote, what the hell were they thinking?
  12. The appeal of heterochromia?

    My 2 cents, heterochromia is just another moe aspect of a character. Just two examples about that: Steins Gate's Daru found the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) pretty sexy, and in Maitetsu you romance trains. Anything and everything can be moe-fied and made sexually appealing. AFAIK David Bowie had this "condition", and it didn't bar him of living a full life... so what's the point of comparing it to actual crippling diseases? At any rate, girls with heterochromia are something like "cute mutants"... In
  13. Look, I've been watching anime all my life, even as a baby I watched the 80s anime for children. Anime is a big entry point for people into the VN world. So, like an anime person would watch several different genres of anime, that same person, if he did VNs, would tackle several genres. Sometimes what matters is the quality of the game (within its genre), and you're sold. Who says moege can't do great within the moege style? You just need to like the thing, or at least not abhor it. Looks to me there are some people who would segregate players by their main genre, and that's a bit sad. For example, no matter how much I like Root Double, Ever 17 or Virtue's Last Reward, I can't do those constantly, I need a change of pace and some kawaiis.
  14. Princess Evangile Steam Key Giveaway (ended)

    Can I get it? Can I?
  15. How many people cares for physical copies?

    I prefer to get cheaper digital versions. On a side note, my eroge collection isn't something I want displayed in my room, nor is something I would show to visitors; and I don't think it's worth it having all my eroge in physical just for myself to look at the covers. Nah.
