Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. Cuties with pink hair

    https://vndb.org/c4656 https://vndb.org/c26309 (These are more than your regular cuties.) https://vndb.org/c73711 (This is more like your regular cutie.)
  2. Why Visual Novels?

    Because people like the games themselves, not the medium in itself?? It offers some things very close to anime, but with eroge, you get more explicit scenes than in regular anime.
  3. More like, for a time, they just repeated the same ideas over and over. At least that's the case with Kanon and Clannad. And they're VERY good; but the formula is just the same.
  4. Also pretty much all the titles released this year, like Trinoline, aren't currently available to buy from their shop. They must be fiddling with their server, is what I think. Sadly this has made them lose some sales, most likely.
  5. IMHHW(Nintendo Switch)

    The same but more expensive, since you don't have as frequent sales as on Steam. What's not to like?
  6. Well, as I'm enjoying Euphoria now (not the sexual content though), I think I would like this other game by Clockup: https://vndb.org/v18806 It was just released this year so of course it won't be translated, but I want to know if someone somehow is trying to do so. Also in the rare event that some company plans to release it in the West, that should go in this thread too. To avoid this kind of thing I'm planning to learn Kanji and grammar, but I don't know when I can pull it off, nor when I'll achieve a good enough level.
  7. Depends, mostly on the story and themes of the novel. In Little Busters it makes all the sense Rin is the main, canon heroine, and the one who shares all of Riki's path. Other heroines are OK but in the end they're left aside. Likewise I haven't played Hatsuyuki Sakura, but I believe Sakura the heroine is "special" and is considered canon route. I agree there are novels where the canon status is more blurry, especially in moege.
  8. Wew, so many catgirls. Must be the response to Nekopara. Nothing regarding Maggot Baits this convention, right? I guess we'll know more in the next one (I forgot what it is). I think MB will get released by summer. They're now in beta.
  9. Chrono Clock Poll & general discussion.

    So far most interesting route has been Makoto's and best girl is maybe DD.
  10. Your once in a lifetime VN

    Obviously Steins;Gate, but Subahibi is damn good too.
  11. Root double

    I feel it's a great romance because romance really flourishes in dangerous and life-or-death situations. There was plenty of that from people who knew themselves well beforehand, so there you have it. That's also why Indiana Jones also got the girl he lived adventures with, every time.
  12. There have been cases of people who advertised a project (mildly interesting), it got funded, and ran away with the money. Of course, the project never didn't even start. Like this: Man, to get 8000 dollars (even through a scam) has to be nice.
  13. I enjoyed previous Minori works. And they were of quality, too, only a bit old (but that doesn't really matter that much). About Trinoline, it should be enjoyable, but not really a masterpiece, is what I think. If you have little time to read, read something else. If you have plenty of time, then give it a go.
  14. Don't think you're bad at conveying ideas just because a couple of people didn't get it... is what I'd say.
  15. Root double

    Yes, BC is explained right in Natsuhiko's route. Which is a bit of a chore, with the slice of life that clashes with the first route. Also Natsuhiko's state as an esper is explained, even thoroughly, I think. They go to great lengths to explore everything BC-related.
  16. Chrono Clock Poll & general discussion.

    Michiru is a bit tiresome, with all the sexual innuendo (and non-innuendo). Pretty plain character. I liked "the other" Michiru better, and she's the actual protagonist of that route really. The route itself was a chore until the end. Misaki also was a bit plain and meh. Seems like I started the game with my least favourite characters XD
  17. Another name left the scene - RIP minori

    Ef is pretty decent, and a nakige, one of my favourite genres. So I can only recommend it.
  18. Tenkiame here and gone before I noticed

    Not good riddance... I wanted to read it and bask on the kitsunes. Seems like the whole project was a mess, in that case it deserved to fail (but the game itself seems good enough). They screwed both themselves and the fan TLers.
  19. The H seems pretty tame and standard, according to VNDB. Depends on whether you must have it no matter what, or not.
  20. It's tagged as "Nakige" with 3.0 at VNDB, so maybe... I expected it to release later in the year. Now, I want release dates for Farther than the blue sky and Maggot Baits.
  21. No... who could possibly imply you're trolling??
  22. Crowdfunding literally means helping to fund projects. Yes, most companies don't really need them. And yes, money-raising originates from charities and has a strong connection to them. But if the project can't happen otherwise, no matter what, you might want a KS. For example, Obsidian Entertainment was at tatters at the time of the first Pillars of Eternity. The massive nostalgia wave raised 4 million dollars. What was sleazy was, after some years of success, doing the same for the second part. But since people were already accustomed to it... There are many isometric RPGs in the works with the KS model and they aren't looking half bad... I don't think they could compare to "real" projects (as in, they're probably gonna fall short in some category or the other), but since KS lets you grab the game at a reduced price compared to the final retail price at launch, it's not that bad either.
