  1. Since there's no Higurashi for me this week, although originally averse due to the whole geoblocking debacle, I ended up buying ATRI as soon as it was released and will devote this weekend to that and Persona 4 Golden. I'm barely an hour into it so far, but my first impressions are excellent. The music, art and voice work are all nice, and the setting and premise for the story is pretty interesting. More than anything, there's something about the general ambience of the game that I can't quite put my finger on, but it's making me feel like this is going to be a great read.
  2. I won't feel the least bit bad about picking Adabana up from some torrent site instead, since that is literally the only way for me to play it. I'd buy it if I could, but they're kinda forcing my hand here.
  3. The Switch version will be completely uncensored too, as far as I know. (Well, aside from removal of the 18+ content, obviously.) It's kinda funny how it's Sony who goes to town with the ban hammer nowadays. Nintendo used to censor products for the sake of aiming for a younger audience, while Sony was trying to brand PlayStation a mature platform, but now the roles are reversed, with several games being released uncut for Switch while the PS4 versions are censored to some extent.
  4. Apparently, the English PS4 version of Aokana, which is set to release in August, will receive additional censorship compared to the PC, Switch and Japanese PS4 version. As far as I know, there's been no clarification as to what has been altered or removed.
  5. There's an article from Siliconera five years ago, but I can't find anything else about the announcement. It's probably safe to say that it's going to take quite a while for Mangagamer to localize Rei, if they actually do it.
  6. Well, if you recommend reading it, I might as well do so! It's not like putting off Umineko for a few hours more is going to kill me (I hope )
  7. Is it a quick read? After reading the other chapters with the 07th mods applied, I'm not sure I'd be able to endure Ryuukishi07's own artwork for more than a couple of hours.
  8. I'm very interested in this for the same reasons you are, but I have to say that I'm also somewhat averse to buying it, because Adabana, which will be released on the same day by the same publisher, is still geoblocked in Europe with, to my knowledge, no comments from ANIPLEX as to why. I wonder if it's futile optimism to hope that they'd unblock Adabana if the ATRI sales are good enough.
  9. That’s too bad, but waiting a couple of weeks shouldn’t be that rough, since Persona 4 Golden, one of my all time favorites, just released on Steam!
  10. Nope! I've never checked out their channel. I guess I'll find out more about what that entails in the near future then! Unless it's something that's revealed early on, like how you learn more or less immediately when Higurashi takes place, I think I'd rather not know. Thus, I'm avoiding that particular spoiler box. Anyway, if the mod for chapter 8 of Higurashi is released this weekend, like I hope, the plan is to get started on Umineko as soon as I finish that. Not sure if I'll end up writing impressions and theories for every part like I did with Higurashi, but it w
  11. Just finished chapter 7 of Higurashi, somewhat later than expected due to me being pretty busy this past weekend. As of right now, the 07th mod for Chapter 8 has yet to be released. The previous ones have been completed roughly a month after the release of the chapters themselves, and if that's the case this time as well, I'm still on schedule to read that chapter this coming weekend. Otherwise, I'll have to put off reading it until the mod is released.
  12. Ah, yeah, I had forgotten about that part! Doing all of this should be enough to move on.
  13. I'm pretty sure it's working as intended, even if it doesn't seem so right now. The same thing happened to me, and I was able to move on eventually. Just
  14. I think you're at the point where you should do what I mentioned in my previous post. Basically, you're supposed to
  15. In any case, it isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things. These are really just my spontaneous thoughts right after finishing Chapter 6, and they're all based on assumptions and information I was provided there. It isn't unlikely that my opinion will change one way or the other once I get some perspective on things. I still have two chapters to go and I expect that quite a few things will have been turned on their head by the time I'm done.
  16. I've actually already read Ever17. It was a bit slow, but the story was definitely interesting and I'm intending to read the others in a not too distant future.
  17. Finished up Raging Loop a couple of days ago and now I'm done with chapter 6 of Higurashi. Raging Loop Like I mentioned in a previous post, I'm not that into werewolves, which initially put me off when I considered reading this VN, but I'm glad I actually decided to pick it up. The pacing of the story felt just right and the story itself turned out to be a more exciting read than I expected, with quite a few twists and turns right up until the end. I did see through some of them long before the reveals, but everything leading up to that point was so well executed that it felt satisfying ne
  18. I wonder if they're still working on Hyourin, which they announced at the end of 2018. Haven't heard anything about it since, so maybe it's been abandoned by now. I'm all for a VN store with a dedicated client where all localization companies could come together and distribute their games, and while I don't know if Hyourin was supposed to offer such an extensive service, the initial announcement definitely caught my interest.
  19. There are some references to what happens in Chaos;Head, but other than that, it's an original story that stands on its own.
  20. Nothing quite screams "gem" like the first coming of the titty spider.
  21. That actually sounds preferable! Some of the stuff in Higurashi feels a bit repetitive because they talk about it over and over again in each chapter. It's not too much of a bother, but I think there's some room for improvement/streamlining.
  22. Oh, right, I ran into a weird glitch in Higurashi. All of a sudden, a second Keiichi popped up. Made it kinda hard to take the scene seriously!
  23. I think that's pretty much a side effect from a lack of confidence combined with him putting Miyuki on a pedestal. Even if he'd start actively improving himself, he'd probably still feel like he can't reach her level, and that in turn makes him feel like he's more useless than he actually is.
