  9. Oh man, I just LOVED this post! First of all, thank you for this! It's lovely I'm from Portugal and read almost exclusively in English, but I only discovered VNs (back in 2016) through ZeroCorpse (a en > pt-br translation blog for RPGM) and through them, I came to find ZeroForceTranslations. For some reason, even though I had only played one or two VNs, I contacted them and tried for a translator position - and lo and behold, I never left them till this day haha it's a shame we had to formally close and stop our activities (mostly because we all had our adult responsibilities and couldn't keep up) and though it's now a closed chapter in my life, I'm so proud of all the gems we translated; I'm only with ZFT since the project for Little Busters, but those were fun times for sure. Nowadays I still help where I can - either independently, with an old translation buddy or with VNX+, the great group behind Steins;Gate's translation* and I'm helping to bring our lovely catgirls to Portuguese Sadly I can confirm just how bad some TLs are... I'm not giving names, but we only took an entire year to finish Clannad's TL because the previous group working on it had translated it pretty much in a literal fashion and worse, the English fantl they followed was even more literal. Yikes. I remember how many gems we had screenshoted for that game alone Anyways, even though I'm not Brazilian (I'm from Portugal and no I do not know where the gold is), I am a Portuguese speaker and I want more people to know how amazing visual novels are! I've made so many wonderful friends over the years and it's such an important part of my life, hehe Aaaa, hype hype!! Even though Sukinime is the known Brazilian group for BL translations, I might just one day help them with some project... *more specifically, I've also helped with editing a lot of graphics and stuff (e.g.: that Toradora game for PSP, for which the English TL team didn't bother to translate the minigame's titles lmao; Amnesia: Memories; Gin'iro Haruka). Oh, and I partially fan dubbed Hiyoko for Danganronpa 2 but I ended up giving up due to anxiety and uni).
  10. Currently listening to these three non-stop! Their voices are adorbs Anyways I'll post more on Wednesday if I remember kasndaksjnd
  11. Looks decent! I have seen that guide around, actually
  12. VNDB | Get it on MangaGamer! Summary Kantou, Pandemonium— Formerly known as Kajou City, a central metropolis of the Kantou region, it was transformed overnight into a demonic city where the supernatural runs rampant after it was linked to the swirling power of chaos from the Abyss several years ago. When immortal, unidentified beings called “Witches” began to appear, the government responded by quarantining the metropolitan area, and ceding the land from their sovereign borders. Though old Kajou City became a ghost town for a time, criminals, illegal immigrants, and defaulting debtors who couldn’t make a living in this corrupt world sought refuge in the city, followed by an influx of prostitutes, black market dealers, and yakuza seeking to take advantage of them. After growing to a population of 150,000 over several years, the curtain rises on this tale when a certain man encounters a lone “Witch” here in this unrecognized free city known as Pandemonium. The wheel of destiny begins to turn for one man and the “Witches”, here in this dangerous, evil city beyond the reach of law. Ending Guideline / Suggested Route Order There are three endings: a bad end, a normal end and a true end. The bad and normal end are possible in the first playthrough; the true ending is only unlocked on your second playthrough. To save you some time, I have included save points. Walkthrough Bad Ending "Welcome to the Monkey House" Normal Ending "Red Harvest" True Ending "Ashes and Diamonds" Attribution Summary taken from MangaGamer's store page. If there is anything wrong, let me know!
  13. Well, I have finally finished Maggot Baits! Phew~! I can't believe it took me almost two years to finish one novel... if it wasn't so graphic, I could have finished it sooner, but I always had to make sure my parents wouldn't see me playing it haha I'll just start by complaining about the one thing I disliked: up until chapter 4 or even 5, there is barely any balance between the plot scenes and the h-scenes; I can count on my fingers the ones minimally relevant to the characters or the story itself; most dragged themselves for much longer than they should have, even if the reader was getting off to it. With the amount of h-scenes there is in the initial chapters, the readers certainly do not need 15 minutes worth of tentacles and torture for every 10 minutes of plot, do they? That's what it felt like for me, at least. Anyways, the character design is, as always, beautiful! I love Hamashima's work~ I especially liked their glowing eyes, they really felt bewitching during the night...! The OST was way better than what I expected, especially during the battle scenes, but the ending song was so lovely it made me relax as I listened to it~ The writing felt a bit dense at times, but that is to be expected, due to its setting. I liked that there weren't many choices, as I could totally focus without worrying about my previous choices, since it felt like characters could drop dead at any moment... well, some characters. The plot itself never got tiring, always adding more mysteries to the main thing - after the endless h-scenes, the plot scenes start to get longer and you get by the other h-scenes that come next quicker, so it only gets better from there! (about the endings) This was such a fun VN to read! I've cried... I've laughed... and I sure recommend this to anyone who is able to stomach the torture. No, wait...! You don't have to, actually! If you really want to read it, they have an on/off switch and you'll only be seeing vomit when there is any, but not blood or gore! If the descriptions and/or the specific sexual content presented turn you off, however, I'm afraid you'd be better off just reading something else. I know this game has a bit of a bad fame, mostly coming from people who haven't read it in its entirety (or anything at all), but trust me, it's a very beautiful story! Overall, I'd give it a full 8/10! oh and best girl is Serika, of course ✰
  14. I started ef - a fairy tale of the two. two weeks ago and although I haven't made much progress, I'm really liking it! Miyako is really cute and interesting to be with and Kei is not as annoying as I thought she could be. Everyone in the game seems to be entertaining enough~
  15. He wrote PUNCHLINE??? Seriously? Damn, that was so shitty and I don't even remember much of it lmao welp, glad to know my taste is still somewhat good /j
  16. Long time no see, all of you! It's been a month, more or less! In the meantime, I've been playing Zero Time Dilemma and while I know many don't consider it a visual novel and for good reasons, I approach it the same way dknjasknda It was... well, it was something, alright. Yeah, I didn't enjoy it... I'll give it a 6/10 but honestly? It felt like a 4/10... Maybe I'm just done with these series and it's my brain saying "pls no moreee" but oh well; I did like one thing! The puzzles!! They are easier!!! I actually did most by myself!! Way to make me feel not dumb lmao But yeah, the cast was not fun to be with at all, maybe except Team D, but the visuals didn't help aaaaa... I hate it I hate it I hate it. At some point I did get used to it but it was always something that stopped me from being too emotionally invested lol I just couldn't take the story seriously. I'm almost done with Maggot Baits (finally!) at 90%, hooray! I might actually finish it lololol
  17. Finally finished rereading Amnesia: Memories! It took a week longer than I was expecting (I did a route per week) but I did finish it Well, I'm gonna be honest: it wasn't as good as when I first read it, but oh well, that's what usually happens when you read something you feels nostalgic about. It's a 90/10; though it's so damn satisfying when it's still good even after all these years Well, maybe one of the causes I didn't like it as much this time was the big focus on romance when I was going to reread it expecting more mystery lol Anyways, back in 2016 I gave this a 9/10 and now it has a 7.8/10, hah. Heart World - Shin Spade World - Ikki Diamond World - Toma Clover World - Kent True Ending! And that was it!! It wasn't as amazing as when I first read it, but hey, at least I have refreshed my memory and my score on it. I'm 55% done with Maggot Baits, and I'm trying hard to finish it! It's super interesting so far, and it's curious how the heavier stuff seemed to all appear in the first 30% (?) but then, it softens? Not that I'm complaining, I am digging the plot!
  18. I hope you enjoy LB! It's one of my favorites of all time
  19. ah, yeah. It's doesn't appear to change too much, according to the VNDB note abt it: Remake of the original game with live-action graphics and adjusments to make it easier to play. The game will feature two modes, “Drama Mode” and “Original Mode.” In Drama Mode, the game’s live-action actors will perform as the characters in the game, both visually and vocally. The game’s setting of Shimane is also depicted in live-action. In Original Mode, the game uses Taro Minobosi’s original artwort and original voice cast. You can switch between these two modes from the title screen. A resolution chapter that reveals the truth of the ending that was previously untold has also been added. A friend of mine played this version and chose the live action art and while it isn't bad, there are some scene that just look weird and somewhat comical in supposedly tense moments lol
  20. Just finished Root Letter and I enjoyed it a lot!! It was very nostalgic as I first played the first 5 chapters back in 2017~18 on my PS4 I was loving it and I've been wanting to get back to it since then. I'm listening to its soundtrack while I write this, so that does tell you how much I liked it haha Well, let's see! As I mentioned before, the OST is great! It's not something out of this world, but its sooo good to set a relaxed or tense environment I get immersed in the story in seconds with the music playing in the background. Just like the soundtracks, the art is very soft, giving it relaxing vibes. The whole setting is like this ngl; so if you are expecting a thrilling and scary mystery story, well, it's not exactly that, but it's not always fun times either. Oh yeah, the backgrounds are 10/10. The characters were pretty good too - nothing super "wow" but they did a fine job for their roles, enough to keep me playing. No one was super annoying or frustrating to talk to, so that's a win in my book. The gameplay mechanics were okay, I think. They aren't exactly original but their use gave the whole game a different feel to it, which I enjoyed. I feel like without them, the game would be pretty linear and boring, maybe? The only thing that was kinda annoying after some hours of play time was the "Max Mode" (oh, and sometimes the whole "investigation" minigame) - like, sure, I get why he does it but what's really the point to turn it into a minigame? Like, it doesn't add much and it's not even logical, you can't guess what's the thing he is supposed to say LOL The plot itself was "just" OK. It was a pure 7/10, but my enjoyment of it was a 8(,5?)/10 like, the first ending was my favorite, just because of how WTF it is and the whole "scary" feeling it gives. The true ending was SO disappointing istg Plot holes? This week's reading will be a rereading, actually! Amnesia: Memories! I really liked my first reading of it (9/10) hehe I can't wait to see if it still holds up. I'm also excited for this one because I'm reading it for my VN club and it's the first otoge I'm reading for it, and, well, the majority of the ppl there are either guys or ppl who don't usually play anything outside of bishoujo games or both so I'm glad we're stepping outside of the confort zone, heh
