  1. VN Article

    Was this a list for beginners or a list that beginners should avoid? I'm really torn
  2. Hata-tan/EroHata

    And he forgot to mention that he wants to chuuchuu his choo choo xD
  3. Fatal Twelve - Review + Rant

    Yeah, this should really be a blog post. I can't even see it as anything else as a blog post. This has to be the bloggiest blog post I've ever seen...
  4. Hajimete no Okaa-san - a misunderstood gem

    Would you think it's okay to be a moege protagonist in real life? Almost all of them would either end up sued or beaten up in a dark alley, if not worse. Bringing realism into games is like bringing a flyswatter to an all-out war... I started playing it (yeah, call the cops...) and the immorality of it is in fact one of the, if not the core of the story.
  5. Hajimete no Okaa-san - a misunderstood gem

    You don't sound like you played it. All what OP said about the story makes it sound like there is more than "fockmadauda: the game" I might not like lolige or incest, but from expericne I can say that this might really be legit. Why don't you try it yourself? If it is a good game and OP was right, you played a good game, if it really sucks, well, now you have proof.
  6. Fire Emblem Series Discussion

    I've played most FEs since the GBAs, and I liked them for the characters and story, at least till Awaifuing. And don't even get me started with the butchered mess that is Feces. Even Shadow Dragon did a better job with it's characters and except for Marth and a few others they were noting more than random NPC soldier NR.X. But I really liked Shadows for going back to important parts of the series. I can't understand why people don't like it. Nice Story, no Waifu-simulator and the dungeons at least looked nice. Ok, they reused a few maps, kill 'em with fire! But at least we got protagonists that aren't L/Marry Sue-wish fulfillment-Deus ex-superpowered-and absolutely vital for the plot-Self Inserts-with no personality. Robin was kinda oka-ish given that the whole story is a multi-dimensional clusterfuck. But Corrin, effing Corrin... How can you give someone a holy sword, let him turn into a dragon and give him siblings that are trying to kill each other and still do everything wrong?!?§%&$/%/(%/§!! (Ok, Conquest had some good maps, but everything else was even worse than anything else in Farts) Characters I liked: Mad King Ashnard, Zelgius, Awakenings Baby-Kefka, Marth (Smash Bros. Main) First Character killed: the old general in Shadow Dragon and only because the game told me to sacrifice him. I really hope FE gets back to their old stories of political conflicts, misguided rulers and (sometimes not so) heroic knights trying to right the wrongs.
  7. Tsuisou no Augment

    One of those VNs that uses most (if not everything) of the writers creative energy right at the start. The good points first: The protagonist is smee-Tier of selfconscious shit-talking derailment. Ever wondered what would happen if your generic idiot protagonist would be idiotic on purpose? Here you have it. And Nami is as good if not better than him. But the eff-ing EFFFFF-ing forced drama... while the psycho stalker is just an overused clichee, the other two routes are just... stupid is too weak a word for the insults that are the climax of the route. And don't even get me started on the so called "True End". This one made the fanfic that was Re:LieFs True End look like something Kafka and Goethe wrote together by putting their every essence into it. I mean seriously,
  8. Vn with tsundere heroine

    isn't it harder to find VNs without Tsundere?
  9. What do you seek from VNs?

    1$ for everyone who was honest and said p0rn. To those who said Story & Characters: Start reading books, hipsters! Or do you really wanna argue that waifus&husbandos are more than cheap instant noo.. faps and P.L.O.T. something likable The combination of text, sound and pictures (or lack of pictures in the good old ones) is working pretty well, and the still produce hybrids with gameplay that is actually gameplay.
  10. Acen 2017

    You want to confront this special snowflake generation that only plays these games for wish fulfillment to get a taste of reality? Might as well tell teenagers to play games instead of looking at them on Youtube. Or tell fat people to run a marathon. Or otakus to get a real life and a GF/BF/*F. One does not simply put reality in something used to flee from it. And let's be honest: Eroge/VNs turned into nothing more than "AnImU-BEEWBs" or "I-want-a-gril-but-will-never-get-on-in-reality-cuz-I'm-weird-and-or-ugly: The Relationship Simulator". Disclaimer: Nothing in this piece of is meant to be taken serious. It might be true, but it's not to be read as serious opinion. NOT SERIOUS.
  11. Level headed/ non-standard MC

    He's more like an "anti-badass", imo. He does some cool stuff, but most of the time it's just him doing the prep work and letting others be the cool guys/girls.
  12. MoeNovel saving us again

    Nice, another (economic) masterpiece (that bars everything except ANiMu HAREMS, BEWBS and EWAN MOAR BEWBS). Thank steam for finishing what japanese otakus already started. The destuction of Coo Ality. Praise Moenovel, whoreship them, give them your money! The end is near. Reipu your children, kill your siblings! Today we bathe in blood! ...or at least in generic pictures of brain- and soulless animu waifus! Disclaimer: All of this was done in the name of mockery, even Moenovels Release. Please, little children, do nothing you read, see or hear here or in those Visual Novels at home. Doing so can cause severe damage to your brain, face, or those body parts adults tell you you're too young to know about.
  13. Dead until said otherwise
  14. Clannad? Overrated or Worthy of it's honours?

    If Clannad were an RPG or some kind of ""real"" game, it would most likely have the same religious cultists as OoT, FFVII, etc. Calling it the "Best of the Average" might be fitting nowadays since, let's be honest here: Most try to copy it. Clannad might be as well be a cornerstone that created the Age of Moege Madness that is today. Sure, it is even more overrated than those pieces of S* Diss Iraq, SupaHippie & Cringaia combined, but it defined the standard of tastelesness that the modern VN fan values.
  15. Give up and try to be a productive part oaf society or give up and stay an otaku.
  16. Visual Novels - Serious or Comedic?

    If you have to choose between A or B take both. It's not a crime to write something funny in a serious story neither does it mean you can't be serious in comedy. (Fooling around is serious business.) Do what you want, when you want. If your story starts serious and full of action and you want your characters to have a discussion about what kind cake tastes best while killing hordes of zombies with a paperfan (ok, bad example about serious action scenes ^^"), let the game of pies begin. The biggest problem I ((Be careful, personal opinion)) have with VNs nowadays is that most of them feel lifeless and like they used some kind of manual. "How to write a ***-ge 101: Selling Stories that even a monkey politician could write" in combination with wish fullfilment and/or supercool-know-it-all-deus-ex-machina-protagonists and/or protagonists with an IQ on the wrong side of zero. *If people didn't notice by now, I'm for comedy.
  17. SP is/was/and always will be in for the money first and the fans will in 99/100 cases get the sour apple. They took the path of least resistance (a.k.a. quick money and DGAF about what those "fans" or "supporters" say) and it works, and well, they aren't wrong. There will always another horny pre-teenager that will buy their games in hope of animu pr0n. And if you look at steam THOSE GUYS are where the money is. Throw in a few cheap OELVN and some games that appeal to those that had contact with VNs before the golden(-painted shit) age of steam and try to milk those guys (a.k.a. us) as much as you can (since let's be honest, the fan TL scene was killed by sekai and thus they can do whatever they want as jast is as fast as a killed zombie and MG is still working to ge rid of their image as pron-only supplier) and 1,2,3 PROFIT. If SP tells you something just
  18. RPG similar to the one in manga/anime?

    Rune Factory
  19. Why I hate the Fruit of Grisaia

    Rewrite kinda has the same problem, common route is too long and tries too much to be funny (but it kinda works, because of what happens afterwards). Grisaia is beyond saving. Walking-deus-ex-machina-plot-device-protag really doesn't work in a comedy setting, imo. (He still doesn't work in the routes, at least for me, but that might be because I hate those kind of protagonists)
  20. NEVER try to compare a media that caters to socially awkward shut-in otakus whoose only female contacts are their mothers with reality. That's like killing yourself because you think you will respawn as seen in MMORPGs
  21. Mass Effect Andromeda - Ready for judgment (TuT)

    Not really a fan of bioware nowadays. The last DA was... Let me just say that I'm glad I never needed to buy it myself. And I really liked what they tried to do with DA2 (minus the rushed ending). And MEA was another step down. Even with the whole "SJW" stuff excluded some (alright, most) stuff felt forced and out of place. The characters look ugly, imo. But that is my personal opinion. It is rather refreshing that they took their extra time to make all characters look not pleasing for the player since it is easier to make pretty looking characters than it is to make ugly ones. Time they maybe should have put in their writing. Now the writing/story is where they f-ed up royally. Whoever wrote that steaming piece-of-something-that-belongs-in-a-place-where-people-do-their-personal-business is most likely still laughing that they really got paid for this. I hate it, it sounds like they hired some hipster-teeny that tried to emulate a jrpg into his last history class about colonies. But I haven't seen more than the beginning, might get better afterwards, but I really doubt it.
  22. Hello :3

    Welcome to the depths of hell. I just noticed your bare (and imo pretty shameless) advertising for what almost looks like yet another cheap "sakura clone". And did you really steal your plot from Kimi no na wa. ? Anyway, pretty nice of you to introduce yourself after you posted your advertisement.
