  1. If Jast would just publish a proper English version of Phantom of Inferno then it would have a pretty interesting release history;) I can't stand the DVD player format. They find so many ways to inconvenience and frustrate me...
  2. I second this, please don't. I wouldn't so much say "interesting", but I'm certainly getting something out of these threads.
  3. Date A Live IV reminds me that I need to play the VNs and catch up in that. It was years ago so I don't even rememberhow much of the anime I've seen, but that show sure was a lot better than I expected going into it. Hopefully, that new GEEKTOYS studio does a good job with it. The only thing I ever saw by them is RErideD, which was a pretty mixed bag.
  4. Ahh yeah, I used to have problems with that when I first got into VNs. I don't even remember what the first one I read was, but there was way too much sex and I finally gave up when they started peeing on each other lol. Eventually, you'll probably get the hang of being able to identify which ones are nukige and which ones aren't though. These days an easy way would probably be to just browse VNs on Steam. Pretty much everything on there is gonna be normal, story heavy stuff. You can then go to the original publisher's site to purchase them there instead to make sure you have the original content or if you want them more family friendly, just buy them on Steam (or buy them on Steam and apply restoration patches or whatever it takes to uncensor them if you prefer that platform.)
  5. The Utawarerumono, Higurashi, or Science Adventure series would certainly last you awhile and have no adult scenes if you play Utawarerumono 1's remake instead of the original.
  6. Minori I really think if their games were made available years ago on Steam that things may have turned out differently. It's such a shame as nothing else feels like what they would create. It would be nice if all of their games were available in English eventually at least, but I guess that's just more reason to study Japanese.
  7. I was also going to say Kara no Shoujo, but Silvz beat me to it. I just thought it would be a good game to play, since it's Spooktober too! (Spooktober is spooky and October combined to make a big impacto on how scary this month is!)
  8. Maybe it's because I used to spend a lot of time on 4chan and 4chan users were involved in it's creation, but yeah, I heard it a lot. (Nowadays, it kinda seems like Doki Doki Literature Club took it's spot among those type of people.) But, really I just liked how his first was something uncommon and lesser known. You hear about the same games over and over in the VN community, so it just kinda stands out to me I guess.
  9. Yeah, I wasn't aware them either, but I took a look at their Steam page, before downloading the Iwaihime demo and they seem like they might be a really good publisher. I don't see any of the bad translation or "only offering all ages" complaints that some publishers on Steam have. This "Master Magistrate" game looks like it might be something I'd enjoy. Despite being on Steam it has an easily accessible free restoration patch. It seems like they're trying to do everything right based on my first impressions at least. https://store.steampowered.com/publisher/ShiraVN
  10. Yeah, having the MC bang every girl isn't very appealing to me. I remember discussing Utawarerumono's remake with people and them acting like it missing the H-scenes was some huge loss, but I felt like an ass in that game, because of all the H-scenes. (Eruruu just deserved better!) Personally, I like them in things like ef the best, where it's with the girl who he cares about, but maybe I'm just soft. What you're talking about might be good too, but I can't remember if any I played were like that.
  11. Hi! Nice intro! I like your first VN too. It always seemed like most people would always say Katawa Shoujo or something, but yours is pretty unique and more classic. (Not that I can talk though, because my first was Saya no Uta :p)
  12. Publisher ShiraVN and developer DMM Games will release an international edition of supernatural horror visual novel Iwaihime for PC via Steam and Johren on October 23. It will support English, Japanese, and Chinese (Simplified and Chinese) language options. A demo is available now via Steam. Written by Ryukishi07, the creator of the When They Cry series, Iwaihime first launched for PC in January 2016 in Japan. An updated version, which was partially rewritten and contained additional scenario and CG images, was released as Iwaihime: Matsuri for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in July 2017 in Japan. The international edition of Iwaihime includes the scenario adjustments and CG improvements Iwaihime: Matsuri. https://www.gematsu.com/2020/10/supernatural-horror-visual-novel-iwaihime-for-pc-coming-west-on-october-23
  13. Well, as far as fan translations go, it can be disappointing when something you think "should be" translated is getting passed up by what you feel is lesser titles. But, I'm just really thankful that people have enough passion and dedication to fan translate the games they love in general. It really is amazing how many fan translated works we have all together. I could probably get by just fine even if mangagamer, jast, etc. never released another game. Not that I'd ever want that to happen, but it just speaks to the sheer quantity and how much awesome work unpaid fans do on their own. (I was just thinking the other day that it's strange that no one has tackled To Heart yet. It was such an influential and beloved game that it just seems like it would've happened years ago.)
  14. Yeah, it seemed like most people would always just say "there's auto mode, so there's no need for a controller", but I really like using them and being able to click along at my own pace. Xpadder really does work great though. I'm not even sure when it was last updated or anything, but it just works, so hassle free that I'd still totally recommend it, if you're using a xinput controller or something with regular drivers. It just sucks, because I really like using the Switch pro controller and it can be a real pain without Steam's drivers. (I just find the shape extremely comfortable and it has such nice big buttons)
