  1. Grisaia no Kajitsu denpasoft vs Steam

    Funny that you mention Subahibi, I actually thought there were more "unjustified fanservice" h-scenes in Subahibi than in Grisaia. Sure there are h-scenes in Subahibi which fit the plot, but there are several I can think of that definitely don't. With Grisaia, all of the character arcs are romantic, and the romance leads to the h-scenes, so I'd say the h-scenes are "justified".
  2. What are you playing?

    I was playing Utwarerumono. So far it's pretty decent, and I've heard the sequels are top notch. However, I'm now discouraged because I found out that the sequels are PS4/Vita only.... I thought I'd be able to play them on my PS3. The funny thing is that I actually developed and published a Vita game in college for a senior project, but I don't own a Vita I guess I'll switch to another game for now.
  3. The percentage that do
  4. I'd be curious to know the percentage that make them optional. Seems like some of the newer ones do, like Chrono Clock and Sorcery Jokers.
  5. What are you playing?

    Have been reading Grisaia. I'm really impressed by the writing in all of the slice-of-life scenes. Not just the humor, but in the way that it explores the depths of personality of the characters. That includes the common route. So far I've done the routes of Makina and Amane, and am currently in Michiru's. I saved Sachi and Yumiko's routes for later because I was very curious about WTF is wrong with Michiru... a very unusual character lol. Michiru's character + route might end up being my favorite. The only character I find kind of uninteresting is Amane, although her route is very riveting (it felt like I was reading a totally different VN). I also read Cartagra recently, and it was decent. It almost felt like I was reading a nukige, with all of the very short routes and h-scenes. Looking forward to KNS 1 & 2.
  6. Regarding MoeNovel and what can be done.

    I think the steam audience is pretty clueless about Moenovel. Posts on the steam forum might help, it can spark a chain reaction. By the way, Moenovel's If my Heart had Wings has sold quite a few copies according to this: https://steamspy.com/app/326480
  7. What are you playing?

    Reading Cartagra. Nana looks like harry potter. She's also very annoying. These two in combination make her a very unlikeable character
  8. Finished Umineko. I ended up ditching the VN near the end of episode 7 for the manga, because I was losing patience and had a lack of emotional investment in the story... not that I didn't enjoy many parts in the story. I heard that the manga has more plot points answered. I also heard that the extra information that the manga reveals is canon, as Ryukishi07 himself confirmed. I didn't want a wishy-washy "figure it out yourself" ending for a visual novel that took me weeks to read, so I had to read the manga. I was really surprised by the manga because it felt like an improvement from the VN in many ways. Much more dramatic, with crazy character expressions and illustrations. The only thing missing was the music, and color. In hindsight, maybe I would have enjoyed the story of Umineko more had I read the manga. The ending is very satisfying and surprising. Regardless of the format, there are some things that bother me about the story. I felt much less tension and investment in the characters than I usually do for a serious story like this. That's certainly true compared to Higurashi. Higurashi had piss-your-pants levels of tension, at least for me. I was sweating like crazy while reading the first episodes of Higurashi. That didn't happen once while reading Umineko, and I don't think this lack of thrill is because I'm getting burned out by VNs, or even my high expectations. I think it's because of the nature of the plot of Umineko:
  9. Is that really still true? I have a list of like 30 plotge VNs to read, and they're all translated. Hey, maybe this is an answer to OP's question. An experienced VN reader is someone who has read enough VNs to complain about the lack of translated VNs
  10. Not my type of VN, but I think the intro song is good. I haven't heard this type of intro sung in English very often:
  11. Visual Novels that can change language in one button?

    Umineko has it too.
  12. I'll read that spoilery bit later on, thanks for the response.
  13. Am near the beginning of episode 3. Something about the whole plot has been bugging me very strongly. I haven't finished the story though, so rather than any spoilers, all I want to know is if what's bugging me gets answered later on. Or, I want to know if my logic is faulty somewhere. Anyway, here goes:
  14. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    I think you have the impression of VN's being an "undertaking" because you tried to read Ever17. That's probably the slowest VN I've ever read, and you really have to be aware of that before you read it. Many VNs don't even have multiple routes, they just have a single ending. And of course VNs widely vary in length. Ever17 also has a sort of "true ending" in the final route, so no, you didn't really finish it.
  15. What are you playing?

    I'm curious about that one too, there are apparently no reviews posted on it on Fuwa... I only got search results for Root Letter
