  1. Bashing slice of life doesn't seem really wise, while white-knighting a company like Nekonyan who barters in that kind of games... anyway, out of decency doing it isn't wise in any case.
  2. I only wanted to point out their efforts so far are kinda underwhelming. This announcement botch was just the icing on the fail. Jeez, is it so hard to know what on Earth they are working on? About what I want to see, you know, like keeping their promises? If they can at all, in the first place. I guess they really did arrive on the scene like some kind of "revolutionary" company, but they're coming apart at the seams soon enough.
  3. I don't really think Nekonyan are our lords and saviours though. They need to show some real beef before that.
  4. By all means read it, but the beef is in the second part.
  5. Because she's a weakling, and a cowardly weakling at that. Basically gonna bitch her way out of difficult situations. But Clockup knows what ticks with us, so she gets a lot of deserved bashing in-game.
  6. Naturally, I knows the Koichoco!
  7. Some games get their rights re-negotiated and taken in by third companies. But usually they're big games, not sure if Propeller's works would fit the bill. I think Amairo will happen at some point, it's a desired title, it's Yuzusoft, it has the way paved by a couple other titles like Noble*Works, Dracu Riot and Sanoba Witch, and there's no major hurdle to overcome that I know of. I still got my wishlist from 2013 and most of those games haven't been released in the West, they're covered in a big pile of dust...
  8. I wonder why everyone praises SeaBed, must be the dreaded "Subahibi effect". I generally want my mysteries to be more engaging and better written.
  9. I'm a completionistard and can't even comprehend another point of view. Oh, but I guess there exists people who can't really see things they start through to their end. My momma told me otherwise, though. If you have lots of VNs you want to read, instead of reading them all at once, make a reading plan. Sadly it's the same as actual work. It's also fun to make up your own route orders, and perfect them as you get more genre savvy. I agree with leaving some good girl for later on. Thus you keep yourself kinda motivated to read through meh-worthy girls.
  10. But... "Nihongo wa chotto muzukashii desu." They admit it themselves.
  11. First let's see if I understand anything at all, and build my way up from there!
  12. Buy it already. Especially if the other option is learning Japanese.
  13. Nakige are good enough for me, it's a formula that really works, and it's nice to see things improving in the end. A good bittersweet ending is Rin's in Katawa Shoujo. I'm not so big on utsuge for the moment. Too extreme. Why look for a realistic, bad ending, if life provides plenty of that? I thought VNs were escapism.
  14. If you liked Ever 17 you're in for a treat!
  15. Follow news on Facebook, mostly. Nowadays I play some recently released games, so it would seem that I keep with the trends, but actually in some games I'm like 1 year behind. Big ones like Miagete Goran and probably Irotoridori no Sekai in the future, I tend to grab them at the first chance. I have so many games on queue I actually have to make a schedule, however. Other than that, I'm active in the Fuwa Discord where I find about a lot of games, and I used to follow VNTS until it threw all regularity out of the window.
  16. I'd say it depends on the actual timeframe. For example, Spike Chunsoft, now, they don't have any qualms about localising just another version of Steins;Gate -ANY version, really, because it's a best seller. But G-Collections is ANCIENT and they probably used what was available. It's just that the companies don't return to previous titles with improved versions, it seems like the West needs a constant flow of new localisations and people care more to have as many different games as possible, not return to old ones. Another (discordant) example is Rewrite, which is officially arriving in 2 versions I think, and given that the majority of Key fans have already read it, either they buy it out of commitment, or it backfires gloriously (like Little Busters, mind you). But of course, Rewrite and S;G are major games in a bountiful age for the community like 2018 is, not an old game like Crescendo.
  17. I did too. It was immersive... and a bit cringey, since the game is so-so.
