  1. Yup, that's the plan! I've been putting it off for years just because people recommended playing Higurashi first due to there supposedly being some shared elements or something. I don't really know any details, but I guess I'll find out soon enough. I've seen a spoiler about Umineko containing but I'm hoping that's something that's present from early on, like in Higurashi, rather than some game-changing reveal towards the end of the story. Other than that, I've managed to dodge any information about Umineko, so it's basically a blank slate for me. I've also started reading Raging L
  2. Chapter 5 of Higurashi = done. I'm hoping for some jaw-dropping reveals in the upcoming chapters! Three more to go.
  3. I haven't seen it either, but yeah, I've also heard that's the case. She supposedly says something about
  4. Same here! The over-abundant sex jokes got kinda tiresome, but other than that, it was a great game. Hoping for some kind of sequel at some point!
  5. Yeah, no kidding! There's a ton of information to take into account, some of which contradict each other, so if someone actually manages to figure out the entire mystery simply by playing the question arcs, I'd say they deserve something like this:
  6. I've had a pretty productive weekend, finishing up 428: Shibuya Scramble as well as reading both chapter 3 and 4 of Higurashi. I originally intended to just read one chapter a week, but chapter 4 is much shorter than the rest so I figured I might as well read that too so I can get started on the answer arcs next weekend. 428: Shibuya Scramble The story isn't all that interesting on paper, but the way it's presented, combined with the great soundtrack and an interesting and quirky cast of characters, make for a memorable whole. Although I do have to say that, for a completionist such as myse
  7. I'm still waiting for the Steam improvement patch from Committee of Zero. At this point, I'm starting to doubt it'll ever be released, so maybe I should just go ahead and play the game without it.
  8. This was a bit of an issue for me. I like all the girls and the fact that they're fairly normal (compared to over the top tsunderes and whatnot that you find in a lot of other visual novels), but I feel like they really rushed the romance here. The end result would definitely have been better and more believable if they had put some more effort into building the relationships before moving on to the next phase.
  9. Well, to be fair, this particular guess wasn't exactly specific or far-fetched in any way. With people travelling more than ever, it's only natural that any contagious diseases would spread globally at a faster rate than before.
  10. Decided to pick up 428: Shibuya Scramble again, which I put on hold a couple of months ago for whatever reason. Almost immediately, I was met with this: I think it's safe to say those researchers were right.
  11. The intro screen for chapter 3 actually has "The Shortest Scenario" as a tagline and says that the difficulty is "the worst", so I imagine I'm going to be somewhat confused!
  12. If I were to theorize a bit, I'd say I'm highly suspicious of It's going to interesting moving forward and see if I'm right on the money with any of this.
  13. Done with chapter 2 of Higurashi! I was a bit disappointed by Other than that, I'd say this chapter was better and more exciting than the first one, and I'm looking forward to reading chapter 3 next weekend!
  14. Took 10-or-so hours for me to finish. And yeah, avoid using a walkthrough. There's a high chance you'll end up spoiling yourself, and this is definitely a VN where you don't want to do that.
  15. This would have felt a lot less ominous if this wasn't Higurashi:
  16. There's actually a "Gamer Heroine" tag on VNDb. I don't know how devoted they must be to pass the qualifications for that tag, though. EDIT: Linking the "Gamer" trait is probably a better idea.
  17. I've never had any trouble like this before, though. I've been able to run Moon, One and a bunch of other supposedly problematic games just fine on Windows 10, but if nothing else works, I'll give a virtual machine a go. I don't have any experience using one, but I guess it can't be that hard to set up. Nope, haven't tried that, so I will do so now and keep my fingers crossed I won't run into any further issues!
  18. I thought I'd finally get around to reading Air now that my workload is much lighter, but I'm having some trouble with my saves. To be specific, they keep disappearing randomly when I start the game. It doesn't happen every time (for example, it worked fine both yesterday and the day before that), but now they're gone again and it's getting more and more annoying (and time-consuming) having to skip through the game to find the point where I left off in my previous session. The saves are still in the SAVEDATA folder, but the load screen in the game is completely empty. Any idea what causes
  19. I can see why you're confused if you think we're talking about Higurashi right now! We're actually discussing Totono (aka Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi), which Dreamysyu brought up at the end of the last page!
  20. This illustrates the situation for myself: They also pretty much completely dismissed the notion that girls might want to read this VN.
  21. Ah, they're referring to how hard it is to understand the mystery in each individual chapter? Seems like a kinda pointless thing to mention, to be honest! When I was about to start chapter 1 and saw that notice, I figured the difficulty thing meant there might be a lot of bad endings and/or some sort of puzzles, so I was kinda surprised to find out there were none of that.
  22. Yeah, it's another one of those VNs I've been looking forward to for a really long time! I've heard it's preferable to play Higurashi first, so my Umineko playthrough has been delayed until now because of that. By the way, what's this about "difficulty" that's mentioned when you start a chapter in Higurashi? The difficulty of chapter 1 was described as "extremely high" despite it being a purely kinetic novel, and I tried booting up chapter 2 just now and saw that the difficulty of that's supposedly "lower than Onikakushi, but extremely vicious". Is this something that will make sense eventu
  23. If the console arcs aren't that important, I think I'll just focus on the main series for now. I'm planning to read Umineko, which I'm even more psyched about, as soon as I'm done with Higurashi, so I might as well delay any Higurashi side stories a bit in favor of that!
