    nohman got a reaction from Suzu Fanatic in The Future of Physical Media for VN Distribution + Poll   
    My preferred method is digital.
    I'm not much of a collector anymore; my personality's a little too obsessive for that. In the past when I collected films and comic books, I'd often get too side tracked from focusing on filling in the gaps in my collection that it hurt my enjoyment of the stuff I bought. Since I'm not really into collecting VNs or just having a box + leaflet that I'd never otherwise look at but a couple of times laying around, digital is the most convenient choice - nearly immediately available and you don't have to leave the house or wait for shipping.
     
    As for dvd for usb, which is the cheaper delivery method production side anyway?

    Physical for sure. I like the collection feel.
     
    I'd take the USB storage... If they put it in big boxes like the DVD cases, because OTHERWISE IT WON'T ALIGN WELL WITH THE REST ON MY SHELVES AND THAT TRIGGERS MY AUTISM FGJNFVMJNELRGJNOZNEDFZK,EPF§§§§§§§§§§§§

    No, put that money you'd otherwise spend into a savings account to guard against unexpected expenses.

    The simultaneous elation and utter disappointment I have with being lumped together with (Based) Okami is about as confusingly tangled as my sexuality.

    If you told me this time last year when I signed up to this community that I would not only stick with it, but would consider it one of the highlights in my social life I would've laughed at you.
     
    Yet here we are, one year and 608 posts later.
     
    I'm not exaggerating when I say joining this community was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I know I'm not the most active person on the forums but that doesn't change the fact that this community has helped me become a more social person and actually given me a great reason to play visual novels. Hard to believe I started off as a bit of a lurker lurker and am now running one of the forums clubs.
     
    Thank you guys so much for welcoming me and tolerating me.
     
    Heres to another year!

    I got in my blood the urge to read something chuuni last night, so I started up Demonbane and it seems I've accidently gotten myself hooked on it. I'm part way through chapter 2 so far.
    I'm really digging it, which is no surprise since given its kickass setting and premise. Really liking the game's soundtrack too. Will be reading some more tonight.
     
    I'll hopefully knock out Isuzu's route sometime tomorrow or so.

    nohman reacted to Clephas in Clephas' Untranslated Reading Club   
    This is just a suggestion, for those who read untranslated... basically, every three months, I suggest a list of five VNs (each from a different genre or type) that those who read untranslated pick from.  These will all be VNs I've read before (I don't believe in suggesting VNs I haven't played before) and my recommendations will be based - after the first quarter - on what the members of the club think might be interesting. 
     
    The first rule is that any genre that is picked can't be picked twice in a row... mostly because chuunige, moege, and gameplay-VNs all have their passionate followers who will vote their candidates in every time, lol. 
     
    The second rule is that it has to be a VN from my vndb list.  I can't recommend something if I haven't played it, and I'll at least consider anything from that list.
     
    Feel free to make a case for your favorite VN (untranslated).  If it looks interesting, I'll endeavor to add it to my random VNs, play it, then consider it for the list of candidates. 
     
    Nukige and rapegames are out of the question.  This is simply a matter of practicality... because those aren't really fit for the average reader.
     
    Try to keep reading levels within reasonable limits...  I won't suggest Dies Irae or Bradyon Veda unless there is a request, for instance, because their difficulty levels are too forbidding for the average reader.
     
    For the purposes of this thread, nakige and 'normal' moege/charage will be considered to be separate genres.  Fantasy and sci-fi will not be considered to be separate genres... mostly because about sixty-percent of all non-nukige VNs have some kind of fantasy element in them.
     
    If all the members of the club who are reading/playing finish the chosen VN early, we can start a new round early.
     
    Double-listings (multiple VNs, for those who can't bring themselves to play certain genres) will be considered, if the group is large enough.
     
     
     
     
     
    If you have suggestions, please feel free to post them now... my current list of candidates are
     
    Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no (nakige)
     
    Yurikago yori Tenshi Made (chuunige)
     
    Tasogare no Sinsemilla (general VN/story-focused)
     
    Harumade Kururu (mindfuck)
     
    Ikusa Megami Zero (gameplay/rpg)
     
     
    Edit: Aaah... incidentally, I won't be voting during any of these.  By putting these VNs up here I'm basically saying I'm perfectly happy replaying them or have played them recently enough to discuss them in detail, lol.  I'm interested to see which one gets chosen.

    There's unlockable routes in it so you have to follow that to an extent. I suggest starting with Kotori as it serves as the best introduction to the setting and it's not bad. Lucia's route is better and you can start with that if you really want. Shizuru and Chihaya routes are the weak links so stuff those in the middle somewhere and close out the heroine routes with Akane. Then there are the final true routes.
