  1. The only thing I can think of right now that might break a VN in Windows 11 is if the application uses non-ASCII registry keys, because there have been reports of such apps causing crashes. Microsoft are looking into it, though.
  2. Currently reading Harem Kingdom, where I was met with this: I couldn't help but be reminded of a certain scene from this old gem: Anyway, I rarely read harem or isekai titles, but I have to say that Harem Kingdom is one of the more entertaining reads for me lately. It can be pretty hilarious how each of the girls try to one-up each other in order to get the protagonist's attention!
  3. Yeah, at the very least, I could play Moon, One and a bunch of other "problematic" VNs without any issues on Windows 10. The only thing I couldn't get to run properly on that OS was School Days and Shiny Days, which kept crashing every few minutes despite patching the games and trying out various other solutions. I'm pretty sure Windows 11 will run a vast majority of VNs completely hassle-free.
  4. I've been using the Insider version of Windows 11 for a while already, and everything I've tried to run on it so far, VNs and regular games alike, have all worked flawlessly. There are some things about Windows 11 that some people might not like, but when it comes to gaming, I can't make a single complaint based on my experience so far. That said, I have yet to try any old titles that are known to have issues on modern systems, so I can't really give any input on what those are like.
  5. Don't worry, most of it is written in a more normal manner! From what I've heard, the Japanese original could feel quite pretentious at times, so I assume that they just wanted to stay true to that with the localization.
  6. Oh, right, to those of you who'd like to know what you can expect from the translation, here's an example:
  7. I just finished Muramasa, and, well, it was a worthwhile experience, but not much more than that. It's definitely on the good end of the spectrum; it simply fell short of my, admittedly high, expectations. To say it in clearer terms, I wouldn't place it among my top 10 VNs, as suggested on VNDb; maybe not even my top 30. To name a few things I disliked about it: - The protagonist. Yeah, he's pretty much the definition of an antihero and he's expected to grow on you over time, but I still think you'd need to be able to symphathize with him somewhat from the getgo to truly immerse your
  8. The common route dragged on for way too long, but I thought the heroine routes were great. That said, Grisaia was one of my first VNs, so I have no idea what I'd think about it today. At the very least, my tolerance for various VN/anime tropes is significantly lower than it used to be, after being fed them over and over more times than I can count.
  9. I'm currently swamped with other stuff (one of them being Muramasa) so I've had to put this off for the moment, but I'm definitely giving it a read later on. I love Yuzusoft, and the fact that this is their (afaik) first all ages title only makes me more interested.
  10. From what I've heard, they're in the process of a server migration and old accounts won't be available until they've been transferred. For me personally, I could neither log in or recover my password, so I made a new account and then talked to a guy on their Discord and got him to add my games to the new account. There's no rush though, because as soon as the server migration is finished, the old account and the new one will automatically merge as long as your e-mail address is the same.
  11. Reading Making Lovers, and... People who have read Bokuten be like: People who haven't read Bokuten be like:
  12. I looked into it a bit as well and it seems like there are some added scenes and CGs in this version, so that should definitely make up for any censored content, to the point where I'm deliberating rereading the VN myself. It's one of my personal favorites, but the h-scenes were awful and way too long (and this was back in the days when I used to sit through the entire scenes to make sure I didn't miss anything plot-related). We're talking a huge time investment though, so I dunno when I'd find the time, considering my current backlog and all the other stuff that's being released.
  13. Didn't they censor even dialogue outside of h-scenes in that version? Or maybe I've got it confused with some other VN.
  14. I love the fact that "Heroine with Jeans" is an actual tag.
  15. Yeah, I haven't tried it myself, but the improvement might not be that significant on a 1080p monitor. I usually play on my TV, meaning large screen and 4K, and the upscaling works wonders then. I'm especially glad I don't have to put up with blurry text anymore!
  16. Man, Magpie is awesome. I just started reading Making Lovers and was slightly annoyed by how blurry everything looked compared to the delightful 1440p of Kinkoi, which I finished a few days ago. (It turned out to be a great read; especially the final route. Can't go into any details without spoiling it though, so I'll just leave it at that.) Aaanyway, the whole "blurry" situation was easily remedied thanks to this wondrous app. I don't know how it works from a technical standpoint, but it basically lets you sharpen the image through upscaling. If you haven't tried it out already, I highly
  17. Currently enjoying Kinkoi, but the following dialogue went completely over my head. Does anyone have any idea what it's a reference to? In any case, it's one of the better VNs I've read lately, although there's a weird (and somewhat creepy) bug that causes face sprites to show up separated from the heads, but it doesn't happen too often. Here's an example: (I might've added some additional text. *cough*)
  18. This came so out of the blue, I'm equal parts confused and overjoyed. Honestly, although I understand that they want to build some hype for it beforehand, it would've been pretty awesome if they'd held out until the release date and made it the shadow drop to end all shadow drops.
  19. This. I'm pretty sure they ended their relationship altogether. The whole point of breaking off the engagement was because they wanted to focus on the band and not have personal issues interfere with that, so staying in the relationship would be kinda counterproductive.
  20. EXTRA2 has already been confirmed to be an after story for Misaki, so I doubt they'll put any other heroine routes in that one. I think the only way it'd happen would be if sprite decides to start working on the previously cancelled Aokana sequel again.
  21. Just FYI, I thought Himawari was kinda so-so and liked Island a whole lot more.
  22. First off, let me just say that I love reading your posts. They actually serve as a great recap for me, as a person who tends to forget a lot of details from VNs I haven't read in a while. As for Island, I enjoyed it a lot back when I read it, and I'm glad to see it getting some more appreciation. The only thing I wasn't entirely satisfied with was how
  23. Glad to see there's no geoblocking this time! (Or at least, not in my region.)
  24. I was a bit confused by that as well, but since I hadn't made any choices yet, I figured it was just an introduction of sorts. In any case, the VN seems promising. I find the protagonist a bit annoying and immature at times, like when he said this to a waitress he just met, but at least he doesn't seem quite as hyper as the guy from Fureraba. I like all the heroines and the animated art is really nice, so I expect this will be a good read.
