    Thanks for all your words! Indeed, I didn't play NG yet, I was really broke when it released so I decided to wait for a sale, in fact I bought it just yesterday so you now left me excited to see what's to come!!!
    And I hope you enjoy Nie no Machi ^^ It does have some sensitive content here and there, sure, but some of them is text-only and the level of occurrence of them in the normal/true end routes is about the same as Dramatical Murder I guess (that's not true for the bad ends though, as NnM ones are worse than DMMD ones)
  3. Thanks

    Very interesting read. Our tastes seem to be similar so I'm hyped to start playing Nie No Machi asap since you recommend it! I hadn't got around to playing it since I didn't fully understand what concept they were going for so it gave me rapey vibes lol.
    I wonder if you already played NG, Death Mark's sequel? I liked Death Mark (and Mashita is my fave too <3) but I was surprised to not see NG here since it improved everything that was clunky in Death Mark, imho. Death Mark had a tendency to just throw a bunch of characters at you and then take them away before you could properly bond with them (only Mashita was around for long enough), and this only improved with the extra Red Riding Hood case.
    If you haven't played NG yet, I really recommend it! It improved the faults in gameplay and placed a lot more focus on characterization, so you actually walk away attached to all of your friends instead of a select few. My favorite partners in Death Mark were Mashita and Yasuoka, which is why I'm a bit bummed out Yasuoka apparently won't make an appearance in the upcoming 3rd game ;;
    (Recommendation for NG: the Super Scary mode is the one that has the same jumpscare formula as Death Mark, not default mode. I made the mistake of picking default, thinking it would be the Death Mark setting... Turns out NG's default has basically no jumpscares.)

    Out of those 10, I only remember that True Remembrance did have good opening song. Also I just realized that Heart of the Wood have a very beautiful graphic, which is more than it sounds seeing that I didn't pay attention much to OELVN here if I may be honest. Anyway it's a good list that you made there even though I didn't quite interested with most of those (BL), but admittedly Hashihime plot here sounds interesting despite the genre (And that Steam Prison MC here is good looking).

    I never actually got very far into it but this thing from the writer of Shinimasu looks like it might be your kind of thing. I assume you will not get the patch that removes the gay (I still find it hilarious that that one exists) https://vndb.org/v9027

    Holy Mother of Horrible Translations, this is kind of hilarious, but mostly I'm just baffled trying to imagine what the original line looked like. I don't think it went according to keikaku.
    Wow, it's the 90s all over again, with Japanese devs having no idea how to localize stuff... "How can we appeal to this mysterious Western audience? Maybe with CHEAP TRANSLATION and EVEN CHEAPER DUBBING! That sounds perfect."

    Holy damn, a crappily-dubbed Engrish localisation? That's kind of amazing in its stupidity. Will have to look for some playthrough of that, but also happy the game received a second chance after being mistreated like that. :]

    (Last route/ending spoiler)

     


    Personally I'm pretty neutral toward it, if it's well written (which is rare for VNs I guess lol) or makes sense (As I think is the case for Hashihime's first two routes) I don't mind it or I may even like it, otherwise I tend to CTRL it if I'm reading a game for the story (Which is the case of Hashihime, it's certainly not a game I would recommend for the "dating sims" aspect or the fanservice).

    That's what made me even more pissed at that route. Like, it was such a beautiful journey, just why end like... this. I know it wouldn't work the same if it's not the last one but ughhhh
    And I actually do agree with you about the sexual content, I rather enjoyed it, but I wasn't sure if it was really necessary or I was looking at it all soft because it is just the thing I like   I know some people just aren't fan of sexual content in general so I just tried to point out that it's still a good title to get if that's the only thing that might make you pass on it  the ending, well, I'll let everyone decide for themselves what to make of it.

    MaggieROBOT reacted to Jin Uzuki in [Review] Hashihime of the Old Book Town   
    Nice review. Overall I agree with the general sentiment, "The 3 good routes are very high quality for me, but sadly it gets dragged down by 2 subpar routes when you rate the game as a whole ", though personally the first route was really a stand-out for me, overall worth the price alone and a pretty exceptional (love) story on its own and something anyone (Not just BL fans) could enjoy. It felt like the story the author wanted to tell first and foremost, and the rest was mostly... filling the blanks and exploring possibilities. The last route is utter trash that brings the quality of the product down. Even if we can ignore it because by the words of the author it is an AU, it's just an ugly way to end the game and it makes hard to recommend the game for me.
    I partiarlly disagree about the ero content though, at least Minakami's one had a fairly good amount of characterization in it with some really good banters that showed off their personalities, which caught me by surprise. I would probably say the same thing about Kawase, though maybe that one would have worked with a fade to black too. But I don't they were badly written as Nasu's mollusks or out of place. The rest is... yeah. They do have characterization in them though, but it felt like they were there  because the product is an eroge, especially the one in the last route which was "just why".
    Ahah, this is so true.

    Well, I read it and quite enjoyed it! ^^
    The story is pretty well written, creating a situation with a tough decision to be made and no obvious villain. Both heroes have their good and bad points and are likable characters overall (but I'm team Alto). Bonus points for the little MC customization (adds a personal touch to story) and the music that, while very simple,  fits the game really well and I love these kinda things where there are subtle changes to the track when the mood of the scenes shift. Another good point is that even if it's short, the story feels more or less complete, and not just a prologue to some bigger project.
    My biggest complaint is not even something generally bad, just a stylistic choice that I particularly dislike: too many choices one after another, coupled with an affection points system. As I prefer to play without walkthroughs, figuring it out where something went wrong with this type of system is usually a nightmare (okay, this game in particular is pretty short so no real damage, but I kinda like when I see the results of what I picked before my next set of choices, I'm spoiled  ), so I usually prefer less choices that activate some flags system or instant bad endings (I know the latter wouldn't really work here though).
    So guess in the end is kind of a tie? www  Mnemonic Devices definitely have a better plot, development and conclusion, but I preferred Monochrome Blues art and choices (hey, we can give snarky responses to a bunch of 5 years old, what's not to love? ) But both dev groups have talent, cheers to them.
    I'm not giving a score just yet though because I still have a few endings to catch on Mnemonic

    Also, I'm so with you on Monochrome Blues (that twist could've gone better...) and Heart of the Woods. But speaking about NaNoRenO, have you tried Mnemonic Devices? It was my personal "winner" of the whole thing.
