Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. grisaia visual novels review no spoilers

    You just spared me years of psychoanalysis trying to figure out my deep sitting issues when the answer was this simple. Thank you so much!
  2. grisaia visual novels review no spoilers

    I guess it depends on if you like the protagonist. If you do, you're going to have the time of your life. If you can't stand him (like I do) the comedy will probably fall flat (which makes up the first ~40 hours [does this count as a spoiler?]) and the rest will feel ridiculously over the top. But almost everyone in this forum seems to like him, so it would be best not to listen to me.
  3. Disappointed....

    Analysing the psychology of nukige protagonists should become a whole thing.
  4. Game with sexy mutual flirting other than sex?

    It's a lesbian kink game, but Ladykiller in a Bind's dialogue consists almost exclusively of flirting and teasing.
  5. What are some strange things you’ve ever done?

    In a very edgy move I decided to spend some of my very first pay on something completely pointless. Since then I am the owner of a squirrel mask I can neither properly see nor breathe in.
  6. Exactly. Key is really good at creating characters and writing good comedy around them but really hit and miss when it comes to properly developing them (more miss imo). After Story is one of the few instances in Key VNs where every major character involved gets a good arc. I picked Akio btw.
  7. Microwave ovens emit microwaves at a frequency that makes water molecules rotate, adding kinetic energy and heating the water in the food, which in turn heats the rest of the dish (because thermal energy is basically kinetic energy on a microscopic scale). If the plate gets hot it's because it got microscopic scratches which small amounts of water can flow into. Ceramic itself is practically transparent to the microwaves, meaning it doesn't absorb any energy from the microwaves and doesn't get heated directly. The food itself not heating up properly has to do with the microwaves not reaching far beyond the surface of the dish so most of the heat gets distributed around the edges.
  8. Why Visual Novels?

    VNs actually offer a lot in terms of what the creators can do that isn't really possible in other media. They can use the similar literary devices as in plays while having the possibility for a first person narrator, passages in prose and a branching narrative, while keeping full control over the visuals, soundtrack and acting choices and without having the same time restrictions which offers more options when it comes to story structure and pacing.
  9. Mein Waifu is the Führer

    Yeah, that's also possible. Then again German doesn't really have fixed rules when it comes to the grammatical gender of foreign words. Speaking about the title, what is "the definitely unauthorized parody" supposed to mean? Who could have authorized this game? Is Hitler still alive somewhere in South America ?

    Talking about heresy, a while ago ago I saw someone on the street who tugged his sweatpants into the white tennis socks he wore with sandals.
  11. Mein Waifu is the Führer

    The way the titlecard is formatted I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a pun on "Mein Kampf". As for the game itself, this could go either way. The best satires about the Third Reich expose how pathetic its leaders actually are once you take away the aura surrounding them. I can see an angle where turning Hitler into a yandere or whatever could deliver on that front. Then again this game could turn out to be one big edgelord "hahaha genocide" joke, which is really something nobody needs (at least I don't).
  12. What are you listening to right now?

    My venture into 80s Japanese pop led me into a different direction, namely to Jun Togawa, probably most famous for her song Suki Suki Daisuki, which became kind of a meme a few years ago. The subtitles in the thumbnail might give you hint as to why. The rest of her output isn't any less weird. To give a few examples: I love everything about this music video, be it the silent 30 second intro, her stage costume and especially the awkward scene filmed from the view of the insect man. And speaking of Japanese artists attempting English lyrics:

    To make a tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes you need certain types of tomatoes like San Marzano (and they should be of good quality). If you're not able to get them even the Italian recipe books I own recommend passata/canned tomatoes. Also the most important lesson I learned from Italian cuisine it's that everything tastes great if you mix it with enough olive oil and garlic. I thought the saying goes "comparing tomatoes and cucumbers". There is no point to it. Anyways, I prefer both when they've been processed in some way. Cucumbers should be pickled, and there are even varieties you can make stew out of (which tastes surprisingly good).
  14. What are you listening to right now?

    There was a big Babymetal hype in the hipster music community when their second album came out, with it reaching No. 15 in the UK charts and even the serious magazines like Der Spiegel writing reviews.
  15. What are you playing?

    So far I haven't read from anyone on this forum that they didn't like 428. I'd definitely recommend it.
