  1. Favorite Romance Pairing

    Well, you just pinpointed why I don't play most otome games lol. That's exactly the reason. The reason I went to the other pairings was because I couldn't take them. Now, I will play them should the MC be okay. Same goes with anime with GxB. Sadly, my love for otome games isn't really here anymore. But it got me more into BxG, so I can read those games better now. Like you, I like fantasy and scifi the most, but like slice of life still. But fantasy and even horror are things I like even outside of visual novels. Sadly, there aren't to many fantasy stories =(
  2. Favorite Romance Pairing

    I can understand what you're saying. I'm like that with BxG, but can play anything. Similar to you, I also don't need romance in the story to enjoy it. See I ask this because a poll showed that both men and women preferred Yuri over everything else. I was surprised 0-0. And what you say also is really interesting to. Would more people play BxB, for example, if it was just shounen ai? I wonder.
  3. Favorite Romance Pairing

    I'm interested in learning what others really like in terms of pairing. Basically, do you prefer BxG romance or Yuri romance etc. I'm interested because I just saw a poll and saw that both guys and girl really wanted a certain pairing. I was surprised by this honestly. I'm curious to know what type people really like and why.
  4. Our Lovely Escape (Western VN Review)

    On one hand, I'm glad they finished the game. On another, it doesn't seem to be a very good one. I mean, for me, it likely wouldn't be the worst, but it's sad that it's not what it wanted to be. I backed this game when it came out and was excited to play (I was the girl for the protag). Cute story but with darker elements can be a great game. Sadly, it appears the devs weren't able to get the story down right. I don't regret backing, but wish I got a better game. Also, sad that the girls are so unlikable. I mean, when I played the demo, they were nothing amazing but okay for me. I loved the art and the premise of being game devs too. Like How to Date a Magical Girl though, they are trying to copy Doki Doki, and though I don't mind if they take some elements from that, neither game did well enough to pull it off. And this one seems to have bad love interests. Well, I do hope they can make a better game next time. I know it's not easy, especially writing. But, good review.
  5. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    Ah, I'm really sorry. I'm not sure how to do that, but next time I'll make sure not to spoil. It was just hard to explain, though it seems that's not the answer the person was looking for. Really sorry =(
  6. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    Not sure if I understand your question entirely, but I read Mashiro's route. Oddly, in her route, the game kind of focuses on her more and will switch back to Masaya's point of view. I will say, in the beginning of her route she begins to realize her feelings for him, though struggles on what those feeling are. Eventually Mashiro comes up with a way to tell him, but it doesn't go as planned. After a certain loss though, she goes and cries alone (beliving her love won't come), but Masaya finds her and professes his love for her. This is the first part of her route. Second part focuses on them dating and her match again Masaki. I haven't read the others yet, but am on the second part of Rika. For Mashiro though, I feel like her love for him is better shown in the first part of her route compared to Rika's. However, I think Masaya wasn't handle to well in terms of the confession because he kind of just randomly says to her he loves her and yet we don't really see that. We see how Mashiro has feelings for him. Same with Rika to a degree, though in her route Masaya shows he's growing to like her. Though, for Rika, we kind of know she's grown to like him. I just wish we could see things from her point of view like we did with Mashiro's route. Still, I feel like the confession is better with Rika. Masaya's confession with Mashiro felt weird, but their relationship afterwards is okay. Cliche, but okay. Sorry of this doesn't answer your question though DX. So, to put it simply, for Rika and Mashiro, it doesn't feel like they just went with it and wee see the relationship grow even before the confession. I can see Misaki doing that though, with her begrudgingly accepting.
  7. Visual novel for mac

    Np =). And yeah, it does suck that many games don't come to mac. Maybe either play on your old computer if you can or maybe buy a really cheap windows? Vn aren't too difficult to play actually. I have one to play games since sadly mac doesn't do so. But yeah, the game I mentioned are really good and long. But one thing with 07 expansion. Umeniko has two sets of games, one being the answer ark and the question ark. Question ark is the first four stories and the answer arc is the last set. Make sure to play the question arc first. Also, for Higurashi, there are seven episodes out, but one is still needed to be translated. You may want to do Umeniko first, since it's done. Oh, and if you want go here for the 07 expansion games http://07th-mod.com/home/. You can download a patch that will allow you to change the art style if you want, but you'll also get voice acting and non nvl mode. I suggest you try it out because it'll make the game more fun for you =). And for Dc Capo 3, it's super long as well, so these games will give you something to read for a while.
  8. Visual novel for mac

    Sorry to say this, but sadly mac doesn't have many Japanese visual novels for it. In fact, the system itself isn't too good for gaming, especially now with the new update. (However I myself with always stick with mac and love it). One JVN that's pretty good that's on mac is DC Capo 3. You can buy it at Mangagamer's site and steam. Another is the 07 expansion games. These are good stories, but unlike DC Capo, don't have much romance. Also, Fatal Twelve, which is a yuri game is good. I'm sure there are some others, but sadly not many are for mac in terms of JVN's. I believe there may be some more, but DC Capo is a big one alnog with 07 expansion games, which are Higurashi and Umeniko
  9. Hardcore yaoi VN

    Sadly, I'm not sure this is a good site for you. Many here play BxG and GxG even, but not many play Yaoi games. Though it's fine if you update here cause there are those who will like the info. As with forums, can't think of many too active honestly. Fuwanovel and Lemmesoft are the ones I know, though the latter is not as active. I suggest maybe joining a Boy's Love Reddit or make one of your own. Also, follow also Yaoi creators on twitter maybe? But yes, do have a twitter and try to promote it through other Yaoi focuses places. Forums now are harder to sponsor games on.

    I get what you mean with the adult content. It is a reward in away and with me when I read BxB I do sometimes want adult scenes. I don't mind all age versions though or adult. Actually, Yuri titles may be able to do sex better? I've heard some people say that. As for the nurse series, I think you'll like it despite not having adult content. Though, for me, I did love Nurse Syndrome but sadly the mc may get on your nerves a bit. And it's good to see you say that about the building relationship parts. I like that too. Doesn't have to be a dramatic story but I like when characters actually grow closer during time. Problem with SOL is making the events interesting enough X'D. But thanks so much for the encouragement. I know a few Yuri developers like me are around, so that's good. I hope though, we can make bigger games with Yuri. I feel like Yuri can be quite romantic

    I can agree with you. Yuri games, though good with the ones I've played, don't have many routes. But have you tried Nurse Love Syndrome? There's six routes in that game and it's one of the longest Yuri titles I've played. Also, Nurse Love Addiction has four routes, though I think the former is a bit better. If you haven't played them, maybe give them a try? Also, what kind of Yuri games are you looking for? With what you listed, it seems you like titles with a good story even if you may want fan service. Also, if you don't want a high school one, maybe go to Star Light Bega. Though I admit, it only has 3 routes, but it is a good story. I myself am doing a Yuri visual novel with more than seven love interests and even had a decent KS. I also have another game in the works with six love interests. Problem is, I've been sick for a while, so they have been hard to finish. But yeah, I made these games because I wanted more routes, though i know it's a lot. Anyway, I really think Nurse Love Syndrome is a good fit for you, if you haven't read it yet and even Starlight Vega.
  12. Do you think this is good enough for a VN?

    I agree with solidbatman and GXOALMD. Do what you want to do, even if the art may not be what you want yet. Gradually you'll get better with things. In terms of your story, I like it too. Eyes are expressive as well. Again though, I think you should write what you want to. You'll enjoy it.
  13. No One But You (Western VN Review)

    No, it's okay. I'm not saying you're wrong. In fact I agree with you for games like NOBY and that yes, people like me sadly start off big as their first game which I admit was not the best idea. When I did my game, I just really loved the idea of lots of romance and friendship and added a lot of characters. But a year latter, I'm realizing how maybe going small would've been better and maybe added onto it. And you're right about the Clannad part with NOBY. That's what he was trying to do I guess and some others even. Or other games want to me moe and do I bad job. I've seen plenty, though some vairety has been happening. But I understand your anger. I was just saying, I've seen devs who aren't like this and just want to make good stories. But yes, people are know for wanting to be popular and having their second of fame and they often let it go to their heads.
  14. No One But You (Western VN Review)

    I am not trying to write a revolutionary game or be the next Clannad. I just want to write something I enjoy that hopefully others will enjoy as well. And yes, I do agree that starting out smaller is a good thing to do to start out, but not everyone has to. I'm not with a big publisher or any of a matter of fact. Just because my own game is on the big side, doesn't mean I'm looking to get rich either. Yuri doesn't even sell as well as some BxG games. I do what I enjoy. And I do this part time and as a hobby for myself. And I'm taking my time. I only did a KS so I could afford better art and music. Just because this dev and some others may do this, doesn't mean everyone does. Please don't say everyone is the same because of certain games. I've seen developers who are not like this.
  15. No One But You (Western VN Review)

    Yeah, there is. And I know he may be going through something. But i was surprised when he decided to make a new game and wasn't honest about what happened to NOBY. Still, I thought maybe this would mean he would bring himself back up. But sadly, it seems I'm wrong, as no updates have come, least I think they haven't. However, as creating a KS myself, I know how stressful it can be. I've been going through some hard time both in my life and dealing with the horrible things happening in America right now. But I won't get into that. Anyway, I always worry about my own game and whether people will play and will it be good/fun for them. I'm not the best writer in the world and lack much confidence. Never sure if what I'm writing is good. I just hope I can finish and make a good Yuri game for players. Still, I did want NOBY to work. Yeah, it was a bit generic, but I don't mind that. I think it could've been a good game, but maybe presented itself too much of being the next Clannad and others, rather then focusing on making a good product.
