    Norleas reacted to Dreamysyu in Koropokkur in Love (Released, Discussion, Salt, the usual)   
    Well, he (?) is listed as an assistant writer for that VN and probably didn't write much there. I wouldn't base my opinion only on that.
    Edit. But, yeah, it's better than nothing.

    Based only on Suki to Suki, she knows how to write good comedy and make likeable heroines, but sucks at romance/every other point "more serious" of the story, the jokes on the middle of romance scenes that make that aspect more shallow than already is, though in the end is enjoyable if you want to laugh. Technically nothing much elaborate, but tons of otaku reference and  4th wall breaking.
    That is only based in one game, but she is young on the scene and have only two non-nukige titles, so have room to improve.
    E: She is only a assistant on Suki to Suki, so what was written above don't have much value.

    Being consistently good is way harder than begin low and then peak higher, the inability to be at least digestible in all the sections is like a plague that infects most of story driven vns and make them crap.

    Looking at the Amazon best sellers i see how much the literature is a enlightened medium nowadays, giving to us such godlike titles like The 5 Love Languages or Dog Man and Cat Kid: From the Creator of Captain Underpants.

    I'm pretty vanilla on that realm, the biggest fetish that I have on real and virtual live is striped panties, but I think that everyone has that.
    Though i don't have problems with standard torture/gore and variations when sex is added to the equation it become repulsive to me.

    Kitto, Sumiwataru Asairo Yori mo, i cannot think now in another vn that put the "visual" and "novel" aspects together better than that, also Key should learn how to transmit emotions with that vn.

    It is really impossible to learn a language fully without knowing grammar, it's like building a house without the pillars, especially for Japanese, which have a structure different from the usual of most Western languages, i not mentioned this before cuz is really obvious that is necessary.

    You could try use chiitrans lite, i don't know in details how he work and how good he was but is worth a shot.

    Actually, a considerable number of vns have a jp android port, titles like Steins;Gate, Eustia, Dies irae and the Tiny Dungeon series are what comes to my mind, but there much other titles that have full port or adaptations.

    Norleas got a reaction from Kaoru in Recommendations?   
    D.S. -Dal Segno- (From the same company, it's in a island with some cheap magical powers like DaCapo and is pretty easy to read).
    Amairo * Islenauts (Through i rate this as the worst recent Yuzusoft title, it's again a flying island with cheap magical events, but with much more focus on moe).
    Koiiro Soramoyou and Minamijuujisei Renka (Novels from the time that Studio Ryokucha remembers how to make a good charage, easy difficulty level and a good cast of characters).
    Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai and Fortune Arterial (Charages with supernatural plots, high productions values, but somehow August shit the bed in the ends and the stucture of Daitoshokan is pretty weird).
    I tried only recommend easy titles to read so a beginner will not have much difficult reading these with some assistance.

    Norleas got a reaction from Okarin in How do you guys read japanese visual novel?   
    Your brain is translating Japanese to english, he is not really reading in Japanese. This is typically what occur when i start learn a new language, but with the time reading and learning more, he will get used to the language and you will start "thinking" in Japanese when you read a vn.
    And don't use google translate, prefer use a dictionary, google translate will make you learn broken Japanese.
    There some people that use some machine assisted reading, i think that if you are starting this is a good way to read.

    Norleas got a reaction from sanahtlig in Trolls try to trigger epileptic seizures - is it assault?   
    In a case like this, that is clearly the meant to do harm, i think the punishment is applicable, but trying to punish unintentional harm(not that case) could lead to some dangerous situations.
    Cyber crimes are rising year by year and i see how some governments could use they as a excuse to monitor and censure the web, freedom in the internet could be dated.

    Most of inconclusive or too open ends and on the top endings that in a logical flow should be bittersweet/sad but with some deus ex machina transform in a happy end.

    Norleas got a reaction from dfbreezy in Common routes.   
    The problem of common routes is that they cannot shine more than the heroines path but at the same time the history need to advance giving screen time to the protagonist and all heroines  in a more "open" way.
    Personally I like common routes that have story progression and something like a mini climax at the end.
