  1. What are you playing?

    So, I finished playing When They Cry today (which is like the first four chapters, seriously the nomenclature of this whole thing is bupkis) Anyway, it was a good old time that was fun for the whole family, until the organs started getting removed The only part that I found a bit wearing at times was that the events kept playing out the same way in the beginning (With some obvious shakeups) The second part typically comes through in the end but it kind of feels like I'm trying to read a story four times in a row but I end losing my place and have to start over from the beginning I also finally finished the last route in Nurse Love Syndrome. It was the chieftain in case you were wondering. I forgot how much I truly loved that vn, especially the well done epilogue (So many vns seem to either skip on it or approach it half assedly, usually with a tepid sex scene) I think I'll play The Falconers Moonlight next since that's been languishing in my wishlist for four thousand years
  2. Man, that was ten years ago I never had a bad high school life but I neither had like a amazing or fulfilling one High school settings now kinda just bore me to tears to be honest It's all whatever man, give me some college life stuff that I'm actually nostalgic about
  3. AX 2019 Schedule and Announcements

    Man, a lot of these announcements are pretty chode
  4. What are you playing?

    I finished playing Cupid I really enjoyed it, interesting premise, good writing, and it was pretty dark and twisted. If I had to choose a song that encapsulated this vn it would be this one
  5. What are you playing?

    So recently I played a few different vns First I played Season of the Sakura a very old vn from 96 and I thought it was pretty decent It had that old style charm even if the whole look, talk, think mechanic is dated as hell. I thought it was also weird that it is plainly set in a high school even though the vn claims otherwise. After that I switched tones completely and wrapped up playing Higurashi part dos I thought it was pretty creepy though the ending seemed to be trying to be mysterious for mysterious sake Also, does the beginning of the story start the same for each chapter? I can see how that might get stale How many of the same festivals will I witness? After that I switched gears yet again and played Lingua Fleur: Lily a short Chinese vn of all things I really enjoyed it and I loved the fact that it was actually set in a University for once. Plus, the writing was actually very well done. I was impressed Now I decided to play Cupid because tonal shifts are fun for the whole family. These achievements though
  6. What are you playing?

    So I finished Chaos;Head after like 8 years of having it in my backlog and I enjoyed it for the most part The last chapter was really great but a lot of those earlier chapters were not so much It spent way too long building up tension and focused too much on Takumi's school life which mostly consisted of him going "....." So much of my experience was spent mindlessly clicking the next lines of dialogue while being bored by the scientific psychobabble Also, like, no epilogue? This vn hella needed one. So it's a 7/10 for me Now, to play another yuri
  7. The fastest you've ever dropped a VN?

    I remember another one from ages past Yo Jin Bo I decided to give it a try a long time ago and was pleasantly surprised by the princess protag since she seemed pretty strong willed Of course after only about forty minutes she is abruptly switched with a doormat of a protag who is useless and get's embarrassed easily So I dropped it right during the hot springs scene (Of course it had a stupid fucking hot springs scene)
  8. Visual Novel Steam Sales Declining?

    I think Nurse Love Syndrome hasn't done as well as Love Addiction to a lack in marketing I mean even me a yuri connoisseur only heard about it's release well after the fact Another reason is because a lot of the better vns are being drowned by shitily translated vns and DL site spunk trash
  9. What are you playing?

    Muddling through Chaos Head Man I remember all the time I spent trying to get this damn vn running back in the day So far my impressions of it are pretty average It's got some interesting things to it so far but I can't get behind the protag He's pretty awful in so many ways At least he's an actual character though instead of the typical blank slates How many chapters is it anyway?
  10. Your favorite voice actors/actresses?

    Mark Hamel I loved when he voiced the Joker Only in the OG animated series though Fuck the new adventure of Batman, fucking pricks (He was alright in the Arkham Asylum games) Ron Perlman I loved him when he voiced Slade in Teen Titans He's got an amazing talent and I'm still awestruck by his presence Miyuki Sawashiro, she voiced Mint Blancmanche so I'm bound to love her Yukari Tamura cuz she voiced Ranpha Rino Kawashima cuz she voices so many characters that I like
  11. Unlimited Chat Works - Random Talk

    I'm currently drunk and I'll not add to the discourse most likely but damn does it seem that yuri protags for the most part are better than most other het protags and have more value
  12. Muv Luv Alternative Sekien no Inganock Shikkoku no Sharnoth That's all of the ones I can think of at the moment
  13. What are you playing?

    Yeah, that's why I loved the ending so much because I felt that they seamlessly blended the routes together for the most part I also finally finished Amane's route in Hearts Wings after like 600 years It was a good ending to a decent enough route
  14. Kare Kano is a pretty wonderful series even though it gives up the ghost towards the end I'd also recommend Kimi ni Todoke though I've only read the manga for it. I think I only saw the first two episodes The manga itself is wonderful but I'm sure the anime would be pretty decent
  15. Banter and bickering

    Hmmm good banter is my fucking jam I'd say the banter in G Senjou and Sharin No Kuni is the stuff of legend Campus Notes - Forget Me Not has some really fabulous banter as well All the Key games that I've played have some pretty good banter between the characters Clannad and Rewrite being the best for it.
  16. What are you listening to right now?

    I'm surprised at how good this band holds up
  17. What are you playing?

    Yeah, Yandere was pretty fucking garbage. That scumfuck deserved everything he got. Crimson Gray and it's sequel is actually very enjoyable however.
  18. What are you playing?

    I finished playing Steam Prison and I liked it quite a bit The protag was good, the world building was pretty solid, and I enjoyed playing through all the route, well, except for Valentine's. I think the true route was the best out of the bunch Also,
  19. The fastest you've ever dropped a VN?

    Oh, wait, now I remember Yeah I dropped Fureraba after about an hour or so when I found out that the seemly interesting mystery girl was just yet another meek and soft girl.
  20. The fastest you've ever dropped a VN?

    I typically don't give up on vns too often, most of the time I just kinda stop reading but it's usually with the intention of picking it back up later on (whether or not I actually do is it's own thing) If I decide to play a vn I typically try and play for a few hours to see if I like it It took me quite a few hours to drop Hatsukoi 1/1 because I thought some of the girls were decent(especially Maya and Kyou) Alack and alas the protag was a spinless, pathetic, cockslap and he brought the whole vn down with his mere presence (Also, the whole cafeteria plot thread was by itself stupid and shallow)
  21. Reading VN is masochistic

    Yep, sure, you are being punished. The punishment is that you have to keep making fucking stupid and weird threads like this till the day you die. I hope you are happy with this resolution.
  22. Well, goodbye dude Hope you sort out all your shit and learn about how to better compartmentalize the things you watch and read.
  23. What are you playing?

    I've started playing Steam Prison and it seems pretty good so far I'm a fan of the protag she seems like a interesting character and I like that she's willing to be flexible as a person
