  1. I'm more annoyed by her voice than her personality, to be honest. In any case, I'm glad there's no (to my knowledge) incestuous route involving her.
  2. I really wish there was some way to change the color of the text or at least make the text box completely opaque. I find it somewhat difficult to read as it is. This is what it looks like with transparency set to minimum: (And no, the black borders on the top and bottom aren't always there.)
  3. It's out now! Currently 10% off on Steam, or 19% if you pick the NekoNyan bundle and already own the other titles. I went with the latter, for a total of 20,24€. If you prefer, you can get it for a slightly discounted $27.99 from NekoNyan's store, here.
  4. It's a small dream of mine to work with translation to some extent at some point, but my Japanese isn't nearly good enough to even consider it right now. If I had the means for it, I'd probably go for something like the Kazoku Keikaku remake, Konosora Snow Presents or one of the other Asta VNs currently unavailable in English. I'd like to see English translations for Muramasa, White Album 2 and a whole bunch of other VNs too, but there's a bit of a difference between wanting something translated and actually wanting to translate them myself.
  5. I'm not expecting too much plotwise, but I can say that I like that all the heroines seem to be somewhat assertive. That in itself makes it pretty interesting, as long as they aren't too hyper.
  6. Reminds me of Turok for N64, which also had green blood, or Contra 3, which was released as Super Probotector in Europe with the main characters replaced by robots for some reason. (I assume they thought it wouldn't be appropriate for them to be humans due to the violent nature of the game, or some such nonsense)
  7. Well, I wouldn't call them crucial per se either, but, without going into too much detail, there are some NSFW scenes that I doubt would be as impactful in a censored version.
  8. I agree, but you should keep in mind that Bokuten is one of those VNs where there are some h-scenes that are actually relevant to the story. I haven't played the all ages version though, so I can't really comment on how things were handled there in comparison to the uncensored release. As for the ban, it must be pretty aggravating to go out of your way to modify the game in order to pass Steam's approval process, only to have all your hard work invalidated out of nowhere seven months later.
  9. I feel like this isn't really the right forum for this, but whatever. Have you tried Divinity: Original Sin? Seems like a game you might appreciate. Maybe The Banner Saga could be up your alley as well, unless you're averse to strategy RPGs. Honestly, one of the best options tend to be to just browse through recommendations on Steam for games you know you like and then read what the reviews say about them.
  10. Well, if you really want to play it, you could always pick up a cheap, older iPad from somewhere. I'm pretty sure you, whenever you're done, could sell it for as much as you paid for it.
  11. Not sure if the problem is that they've removed it from the store or that there's no translation patch for the Android version, but if it's the latter, the iOS patch is apparently supposed to work for the Android version as well.
  12. After a somewhat longer wait than expected, the 07th mod for chapter 8 of Higurashi finally dropped a little over a week ago, and I'm now done with that chapter as well as the main series as a whole. Higurashi was a great read with a lot of both expected and unexpected twists and turns, and now I'm, more than ever, looking forward to seeing what Umineko has in store for me. EDIT: Oh, right, I should mention that I ran into a couple of funny typos and bugs during my playthrough. At one time, they were referring to "the dam conflict" as "the damn conflict", and on a few other occasions, I saw a reappearance of the bug that randomly inserts character sprites where they aren't supposed to be. Here's one example, but the best one is when a delighted Mion forced her way into a scene she wasn't even a part of, blocking the view for several characters while they were discussing important matters. You can see what I mean here and here.
  13. I really don't understand why they decided to make the UI cover even more of the screen. It took up too much space already in the first game, and now it's even worse. Literally half the screen is covered by the UI.
  14. Yuuji's still the one I like most. A few other favorites are Yamato from Majikoi, Achi from 428: Shibuya Scramble, Haruaki from Raging Loop, Date from AI: Somnium Files and Tomoe from Bokuten. All in all, I have a preference for capable, assertive protagonists with established personalities. I'm not a big fan of the self-insert protagonist type.
  15. The hard drive with all my VNs as well as various pictures and documents related to my Japanese studies crashed suddenly a while back. Couldn't salvage anything, unfortunately. After that, I got a Backblaze account. Costs me $60 a year, but it's worth it for the peace of mind I get from knowing that all my files are continuously being backed up in the background while I do other stuff. It obviously wouldn't help you in this case, since it's after the fact, but it could spare you from having to experience something like this again (or possibly something worse, like what happened to me.)
  16. I wasn't able to find a Cruise Sign ISO anywhere, and since I don't have any way of playing disc-based games on my PC, I guess I'll have to abandon the idea of that right now. On the bright side, I finally got the PC version of Flight Diary to work. Not sure why, but it seems to run perfectly with a locale emulator. I hadn't even considered trying that before, since the computer's already set to Japanese locale and I have no trouble running other games in Japanese. Flight Diary is a special case, apparently. Anyway, I haven't had much time to try it out yet, but I've been slowly (we're talking less than a snail's pace here) moving through the beginning of Hotaru's route. I know a decent amount of kanji already, but I've realized that I really need to brush up on and improve my grammar and non-kanji vocabulary. That said, it's very satisfying to feel how certain things click into place in my mind, and I'm honestly kinda regretting not getting started with reading earlier, however slow it may be at first.
  17. Photonmelodies apparently also includes these: "Adoration"; a prequel to the story Duty ~Lost Arcadia~ which depicts Europe during the events of Alternative. "Resurrection", a story about a European spy who is also featured in Total Eclipse If I've understood correctly, they aren't a part of Altered Fable.
  18. Probably just got the names confused. In any case, Photonmelodies will have all the content from Altered Fable aside from the h-scenes, radio drama and strategy game.
  19. I'm guessing RPCS3 is the way to go? I haven't done any emulation in years, so I'm not very educated about it nowadays.
  20. Maybe I'll give Cruise Sign a go then, because this doesn't seem to be working no matter what I do.
  21. Was planning to get started on my first VN in Japanese today. I picked KonoSora Flight Diary, because I deemed it fitting since the original was one of my first VNs and still one of my all-time favorites, but it's refusing to cooperate with me. Whenever I try to start the game, it freezes at the Pulltop logo and I have to end the process in the task manager. I've tried changing basically every setting in the launcher that appears before the game boots, but I get the same result every time. Any suggestions? (Yes, the computer is set to Japanese locale.)
