  1. Any Virtual Youtubers you are watching?

    Oh, I see. My bad. I thought you meant YouTubers in-general, but turns out you were talking about virtual idols.
  2. What was the worst online argument you ever been in?

    Politics in-general can be a very toxic topic for many people, hence why you should always approach this with caution. I usually hate it when users join forums just to spread their political ideologies and agendas to everyone else, and this type of thing has the potential to start flame wars on a massive scale due to every person's own differing views. Almost every political thread I've seen has either been locked out or deleted by the mods or admins. It's that worse.
  3. Hello!!

    Welcome to Fuwa! Honestly, I'm surprised that there are people out there who want to know about eroge beyond Japanese shores (given that almost every western society wants to snuff eroge out of existence), but it's great to know that you're into this sort of thing and want to find out for yourself. I wish you the best of luck.

  5. Ok, so in this thread, I'll be going over a little history about myself, and explaining the events that have eventually lead me to join Fuwanovel. Keep in mind that I'm not going to go through every single bit of my online history, because that would take too long. So instead, I'll be explaining recent events that have occurred to me. I recommend getting a snack and a drink, because this is going to take a while. Chapter 1: Intox Gaming Whenever I think of a community that has made me feel more at home than any other community beforehand, none remind me more than a community that went by the name "Intox Gaming". Intox was a Team Fortress 2 server-hosting community that hosted a lot of custom TF2 game modes that weren't official, like Zombie Mod, vs Saxton Hale, and most importantly, Deathrun. This game mode right here was (and is still) my absolute favorite game mode I have ever played. Deathrun is a game mode where one team consist of the "runners", and they have to run through an obstacle course. While the other team only consists of one player commonly referred to as "the death", and their job is to activate traps to try and kill all of the runners. The runner team wins if they managed to get to the finish without dying, and the death wins if they manage to kill all of the runners. I first discovered Deathrun when I was just browsing through some random TF2 videos on YouTube. While browsing, I stumbled across an unusual video showcasing a game mode I was not familiar with, and was so intrigued about it that I wanted to try it out myself. So I booted up TF2, and I typed in "deathrun" in the server browser. Intox's Deathrun server was the first search result, so I naturally clicked on it. I fell in love with Deathrun so much that eventually, I would start to get to know the community that hosted it. Despite having "Intox" in the name, Intox Gaming was actually one of the nicest and most friendliest communities I've come across. They made me feel at home, and as a result, I would end up staying, eventually becoming an official member as a result. I made some friends too, and the two best friends I had in the community were EternalGreen and Jamele59, whom were also fellow anime fans. Intox Gaming was always brimming with activity in 2015, and there were no shortage of players coming on at any given time. I was so active on their Deathrun server that eventually, I climbed up their score board to reach the #1 rank, becoming the top-ranked Deathrun player. Here's proof. I was having a lot of fun in Intox Gaming. However, this fun wouldn't last very long. Starting in 2016, immediate changes were starting to happen. The main admin of Intox named Bijuu suddenly left the community without saying a reason why, and the other admins had to fill in the gap. Prominent donators started to disappear too, which lead to a decrease in player numbers. At first, I didn't think it was going to affect the community much, but then things started to get worse as summer approached. In May 2016, Overwatch was released, and 80% of the community jumped ship towards that game. The amount of players left was staggeringly low, the lowest the community has ever had by that point. I also heard that Intox was also facing some financial troubles to stay afloat, and with most of the donators gone, things were looking really grim. I was starting to fear that I may lose a home online that I had so much fun with. Then, in July 2016, it finally happened. Intox Gaming had collapsed entirely, and all of its servers have become dead. I was so distraught about this sudden collapse that for the first time ever, I felt marooned with nowhere to go. Since I suck at FPS games in general and didn't want to go back to the main game modes, I instead wandered around on various trading servers, and kept on searching other deathrun communities hoping to find the next Intox Gaming. Which leads me to the next chapter. Chapter 2: RetroServers After months of searching, I've stumbled onto a TF2 server-hosting community named "RetroServers". They hosted a Deathrun server that was very similar to Intox's Deathrun server, so I felt right at home when I joined. Or, so I thought. However, from the very start, I learned that the RetroServers community is nothing like Intox Gaming. That part is obvious, but to say the community is VERY toxic would be an understatement. Trolls were everywhere, and people were constantly breaking server rules all the time. Players would bully other players just for the lolz, and there have been numerous instances of vote abuses just to silence players for no justifiable reasons. For the first couple of months of joining, I had to deal with a very abusive mod named D3rpy Puncak3s, who would outright abuse his mod powers to cheat and intentionally screw over players. Many complaints were filed against him, but for some reason, most of the community actually defended him, even the admins. They said that D3rpy was doing a good job as a mod, and was "the most fun mod of all time ever". It was there that I've realized that this community is fucked up from the start. However, this changed in March 2017. With a staff change taking place, and newer and more responsible admins taking over the old ones, D3rpy Puncak3s was finally ousted from moderator. I was so relieved that this finally happened, because now I could start playing on the Deathrun server without worrying about being slayed for no reason. My relations with RetroServers had improved somewhat, although most of the community is still toxic. I eventually made a couple of friends in the community who are actually nice people, like map developer Bun Bun, and would-be moderator Sticks. I even made friends with someone named Dr. Solar, who was a beginner map developer for the community who seemed nice. But, if you're wondering why I bolded his name, well here's why. During the summer, there was a user named Ultragon, whom was a beginner map developer. He released some of his maps on RetroServers, but they were obviously unfinished and needed more improvement. I had to give him some criticism on his maps, and they were entirely constructive. I gave him tips on what needs to be improved and so-on, since at the time, I myself was also starting on making maps, and had a far better understanding on how to make them. Despite my best efforts to try and help him, shortly after I posted my criticism, he deleted his account. He then struck me as the type who can't take criticism at all, so I let the whole thing go. A few weeks after, Dr. Solar showed up, who had the same level of map-making quality as Ultragon. Why? Turns out that Dr. Solar IS Ultragon, but I didn't find out about it until it was too late. In December 2017, Dr. Solar went on a ballistic rampage, and insulted and attacked my friend Bun Bun because he was jealous about his map-making skills. He then backstabbed me by stealing the very map I was working on, and it was at this point that I found out he was just a scummy asshole masquerading as a friend. I never felt so insulted in my life, and this for me was the final nail in the coffin for RetroServers. I decided to fully distance myself away from them entirely. After that whole debacle, there was only one more place I had to go. Chapter 3: Fuwanovel You may be wondering why a couple a TF2 communities is somehow connected to me joining Fuwanovel, a VN community. Well that's because I joined Fuwanovel back in fall 2016 after Intox Gaming had collapsed, and at the time, I was unsure of RetroServers because of their toxic nature. I basically joined Fuwanovel as a back-up, just in case something happened to RetroServers and I had nowhere else to go. I have never read any VNs beforehand other than a pirated copy of Grisaia that contained Imouto Work's 18+ patch (which Sekai Project cracked down on), and my interest in VNs in general was very low. So I wasn't really expecting to connect with a lot of users on here. Though I do remember interacting with @Dergonu a couple of times because of my interest in writing light novels. I've already explained why I made the @EastCoastDrifter alt (then name Konpeki Umi) in another thread, but after that whole Dr. Solar debacle in RetroServers, and still feeling a bit down about returning to my main account because of a mistake I've made regarding Libra of the Vampire Princess, I returned to EastCoastDrifter instead to start over fresh. It was at this point that my interest in VNs started to bloom, and deep down, I really wanted to read more VNs. It's a shame that right now, I do not have access to sites like mangagamer, but I'm hoping to buy VNs from them one day. But at the very least, I got to know this community, and met a lot of great people on here, like @Dergonu, @Zenophilious, @Kaguya, @mitchhamilton, @MaggieROBOT, @Ranzo, @PapaRabbi, @SeniorBlitz, @Thatcomicguy, @Zakamutt, @Plk_Lesiak, @Kiriririri, and many others. Needless to say, I think I'll be on here for a while, and once I start actually reading VNs, I hope to one day be more a part of the Fuwa community. All in all, from the ashes of Intox Gaming and the flames of RetroServers, came the yellow-brick road I've discovered to Fuwa. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
  6. Trolling, The HMN Crew, and You

    I honestly didn't find @solidbatman's post offensive. In fact, I got a good laugh from it because I made a joke about him earlier, so it's all good. I should probably clarify to both @mitchhamilton and @tymmur that I never felt depressed when writing the thread. I only wanted to share a bit of history about myself, so obviously, a bit of that history was going to include some rough experiences. But, that's all in the past now, and I never intended to make anyone here feel down because of it. And besides, I've grown accustomed to the shitposting culture here, and I agree with @Plk_Lesiak that a bit of shitposts makes the site more fun, just as long as it's not overblown. I think you two are taking this way too seriously.
  7. Trolling, The HMN Crew, and You

    Ok, so why is the shitposting and troll talk focused more on my thread in general? Did something happen? Because I was offline for most of the day.
  8. Trolling, The HMN Crew, and You

    Ehh... Personally, I don't care what they do, just as long as they don't insult or attack other users just for the lolz. Besides, what they do is up to them. They'll get smote by the admins and mods anyway. Unless, it's a good quality shitpost.
  9. A little bit of history about myself, and why I joined Fuwanovel.

    Eh, I don't have a problem with it. Anyone can share their own experiences to relate. The reason I don't have access to mangagamer has more to do with my financial barriers. Right now, I lack a credit card and a paypal account, and I'm still struggling to find employment where I live. Until I finally get a job and access to either of these payment methods, I won't be buying VNs from the site anytime soon. The Fuwa Solar System was sort of a freak experiment of mine, but glad to know it has been well-received. I'm sorry, who are you again? I don't think I recall seeing you around here often. But, if you want a tag, I guess it won't hurt to give you one. Here, my treat @solidbatman.
  10. Guess I've been here 4 years now? o.O

    *puts on bucket helmet* All hail Mitch. All hail Mitch! All hail Mitch! ALL HAIL MITCH!
  11. Mods that made you cry? (´;ω;`)

    @Kaguya, for suddenly disappearing recently. Where is he? He was always around the boards.
  12. A little bit of history about myself, and why I joined Fuwanovel.

    Zaka may be a troll, but he's a respectable one, and actually helped me out with my social anxiety a few times. He's a lot different from the trolls I've encountered in RetroServers. And besides, Fuwa is known for its top-quality shitposts, so I can't complain anyway. The answer is simple: @Fiddle. Ok. I'll gladly take Katawa Shoujo over Doki Doki Literature Club any day.
  13. New Moenovel title announced (Adventure of a Lifetime)

    So, a pure all-ages VN huh? Well, I guess I can't complain about that, and I honestly think this is what Pulltop should've focused on a couple of years ago. Distributing pure all-ages VNs rather than censored "eroge" VNs.
  14. Huh. I had no idea this happened because I was entirely absent. I kinda expected a basic April Fools joke, but nothing on the scale of this.
  15. Zelda gets away with it so why not assassins creed?

    Comparing Assassin's Creed to The Legend of Zelda is a stretch. There's a reason why most Zelda games (exceptions being Skyward Sword and those awful CDI games) are praised, because Nintendo actually puts care into making their video games into quality products. Each Zelda game is wildly different from the last, with Breath of the Wild being the series' first true foray into an open world setting. The series is known for their exploration nature and rewarding players as such, as well as the unique puzzles and boss fights. Assassin's Creed, on the other hand, is made by a company whose business practices have become on par with Activision and EA, and as such, suffers from lack of quality standards. The AC games rarely change anything to keep things interesting with each installment, and it has gotten to the point that the series itself has become stagnant over the years. Combined with numerous unfixed bugs and obvious player shilling for money, it's no wonder why AC is stuck wallowing in Ubisoft's mud. Hence why the comparison between the two series is unfair.
  16. My Short introduction Baby

    Welcome to Fuwa! Please enjoy your stay.
  17. Another Sekai Project Discussion

    I've always known that Sekai Project was very shady to begin with. What with their constant Kickstarter campaigns just to grab money from fans, putting priority over new customers instead of their backers, frequent delays that seem to be entirely intentional, and the complete BS refund system that is rigged against the consumer. These are anti-consumer practices that have become all too obvious over the years, and I feel Sekai Project is doing the VN industry more harm than good. If the VN market wasn't niche, I could imagine Jim Sterling roasting Sekai Project for the same reasons he roasts other AAA game publishers like EA, Activision, and Ubisoft.
  18. I recommend hiring an editor who is a natural English speaker. They'll help you out the most with your grammar, and be a large asset for your proofreading needs.
  19. *Insert Clickbait Introduction Title*

    Welcome to Fuwanovel. Enjoy your stay.
  20. Bizarre idea.

    Well, I highly doubt Steam will go under very soon because Valve makes a lot of money from distributing all sorts of games, not just VNs. The only way that Steam would go under is if Valve suddenly went bankrupted, which seems very unlikely considering how successful they are. And Steam is pretty notorious for VNs anyway because of their censorship policies, effectively rendering eroge marketing completely pointless. It's generally agreed upon that sites like mangagamer and JAST are the best sites for VN distribution. All in all, I don't think Fuwa is quite fit for this.
  21. The grammar needs to be improved. If you're trying to market your kickstarter project, you have to at least come off fluent in order to entice viewers to invest in your work. I take it that English is not your first language correct? Also, the art looks decent enough, though the body proportions need some adjustment. The male lead in particular is lacking a proper build, and his arms are scrawny.
  22. So What Got You Into VNs?

    DDLC would be the last on my list of VNs I'll ever read.
  23. So What Got You Into VNs?

    Yeah... No thanks. I've heard a lot of stories of Steam censoring and cutting subjective content from VNs, so I'm not going to try any of them there. Free or not.
  24. It really baffles me why some people go to great lengths to perform underhanded tactics in order to be in the spotlight. I'm glad this guy is finally caught, and should set a reminder to everyone else that cheaters never prosper in the long run.
