  1. VN with both english and japanese text

    This thread should be able to help u in someway
  2. Sankaku Ren'ai Discussion

    Most of the plot in the common route bores the hell out of me ? Like what? O.o Do agree with this @VirginSmasher and I can't believe you actually like a moege Vn for once
  3. Sankaku Ren'ai Discussion

    As @VirginSmasher said, the beginning of the VN isn't bad, but once you get into the common route, it quickly becomes filled with extremely boring (to me at least) and pointless SOL stuff (it's quite long as well). There are 4 main heroines, but you cannot get into the other 2 non-sisters routes without finishing the sister routes first (I think. Not a 100% sure as I dropped the VN around 2 hours into each sister's route over a year ago and I found no way into Shiina's and Maho's route previously). The writing of the routes itself (based on my unfinished playthrough for both sister's routes) is ok, but nothing special. I do not like the artwork (especially Shiina's character design) very much as well. All in all, not a bad VN (although not as good as their future or past titles such as this). Decent SOL moege and reasonably priced will be my final verdict I guess.
  4. Firstly, this VN (and a lot of older titles) does not work in Windows 10. Instead of bothering to find ways to get it to work, you can instead install a Virtual Machine software and Windows 7 on it (You can install and use it for a month in trial mode I think; I believe it's totally legal, and there's a lot of ways to obtain the ISO itself only legally). This way you can play it inside the Virtual Machine without issues. Above method for your consideration
  5. Did some googling. Apparently, they sinply pulled hers (Akari) original route and patched it into Flight Diary Flight Diary's TL is actually pretty good, but Akari's route TL is of the same quality as the original IMHHW; near garbage quality. Those who like her can go ahead and buy her route, but personally i will not go anywhere near it (TL is a deal breaker for me)
  6. https://mobile.twitter.com/Denpasoft_pr/status/1122971689585823744 I was emailed by them. Really long list that includes a ton of classics as well. If there was a title you want from Sekai Project, guess it's time to grab it now (chances are it is on sale)
  7. Honorable mention
  8. DameKoi Release Date Announced

    https://vndb.org/t12233#3 Food for thought? ....
  9. @Dergonu Well my personal opinion is that this time around it's ok. It's not as if they took EA's route in Battlefront 2; can you imagine having to pay to to access, say, CGs or even the routes themselves? And Akari's route isn't even supposed to be in Flight Diary in the first place (isn't it a Playstation exclusive?). Giving the buyer an option to buy her route is flexible in this case ; those who like her and wanted to read her route rejoice, while those who are disinterested (like myself) can simply care less about the availability of the purchase. Not that I'm supporting Moenovel's move, but rather their move didn't antagonise me as much as, for example, this shit, which is a far worse example of selling content for an incomplete game.
  10. While Kiriririri's reply might had been harsh, I think most can get what he is trying to convey; this is definitely one of the more mediocre (at best) article-post that I had read: Hyperdimension Neptunia is not a VN. The most relevant and closest-to-a-VN reason for inclusion in a topic like this is that the the game bears a lot of similarities to the subject title in this discussion thread. I don't understand what he is trying to say by including it here (there are other similar game (series) which enjoyed - or > success HDN had if that's what the OP is trying to reference) While there are VNs being produced and sold outside of Japan, Visual Novels are still mainly being made, sold, and read there. Referencing Dracu Riot, Hyperdimension Neptunia, and Nekopara in the previous part gives readers the impression the OP was talking about the situation in Japan and not globally, and this part of the post seems to be saying globalisation has affected the market in Japan itself. If so, I find it logically difficult to believe that's the case This is subjective and should be indicated as such. By not doing so, the post gives me the impression the OP was trying to factualise / propagate his own opinion. The more aggressive F2P model works by incorporating human physiological elements such as Sunk Cost Fallacy into their game design; you get to play a part (usually the beginning part) of the game for free (exception being lot of EA titles / 2k sports titles etc) and microtransactions will be pushed to your face whether you like it or not. The less aggressive method has the entire basic game being readily available to be played for free while giving players the option to buy content which does not impact the gameplay in any meanful way. Examples being MOBA such as Dota 2 (yes, I know of the existence of Dota Plus). Although I can tell (probably) what the OP was trying to say (the VN itself = same as a F2P game and the additional products produced = microtransactions) , calling the commercial methods companies such as Yuzusoft use on their VNs as similar (even spiritually) to F2P is just frankly ridiculous to me The OP also included a lot of meaningless / subjective / misinformed stuff in his post such as these: While I know the OP has the right to post whatever he wants, perhaps the OP could had gather some of his/her points, and collate and post it instead of posting what seemingly was a informed article. Just my 2 cents worth
  11. Denpasoft started stocking some OSTs in their catalogue (very limited selection though, obviously)
  12. Is Euphoria worth it ?

    @MIUUZICK This video was in my recommended list when I was youtube-ing yesterday: My first reaction is that her reaction was sort of fake and, I dun know, forced maybe (I was thinking perhaps she exaggerated her reactions for views). Then I started thinking maybe the ones who replied to your thread (including myself) belong to the minority who can enjoy this kind of stuff, and her video may accurately represent how the average VN reader will react with this VN. Her negative reactions seemed to stem from the sexual stuff inside the VN. I posted this as reference material for you since it seems relevant as you hate rape (and more extreme sexual stuff presumably)
  13. Is Euphoria worth it ?

    There's a lot of hardcore sexual content (like this) in the VN. You need to make sure you can handle it first before you go into this (you said you disliked rape, so I'm assuming you dislike more extreme sexual content in general) It's worth it to bear through those in my opinion. The twisted story line is pretty unique among TL-ed VNs (I don't think there's another EN one like it as of now); it's deep and interesting (kinda like the twist on the true route although not the ending itself) and thought-provoking (at least for me for Nemu and Kanae's routes). If you can handle those sexual stuff (note: some of it do play a part in the plot and the development of it in some routes) and a plot which is darker and more twisted than most stories you will read, then you should definitely read this VN
  14. the grisaia sequels translation question

    If I'm not wrong, the ones at Denpasoft should be untouched TL-ed versions of the originals
  15. HoshiOri Discussion

    My estimation ( I did not time my runs though) - Rikka - I think TexasDice is correct - should be around 29 hours. I'm only on 13th July in her route and it felt as long as the total amount of time I spent on Marika's route (stopped on 6th Aug) Touko - Actually feels similar in length to Rikka's. Stopped at 12th July and the time of this post and it only feels about 1-2 hours shorter. My estimation - 24 hours-ish Marika - Quite short comparatively. I think should be around 15 hours Read that Sora's route is quite long as well, so total time should be 100 hours-ish (Common - 8 hours? / Rikka - 29 hours / Touko - 24 hours / Sora - 20 hours? / Markia & Misa - 15 hours each).
