  1. Just finished the first chapter of Higurashi! I thought they'd start off slow since this is basically just the prologue for the series, but it turned out more intense than I expected it to be. They did an excellent job of building atmosphere. Despite my high tolerance for horror, some of the scenes actually managed to creep me out a bit. First and foremost, the one where you find out I expect things will only escalate from here. Honestly, I would love to continue with the other chapters right away, but if I plough through them like that, I'd probably be done quite some time before t
  2. There are depending on which route you pick.
  3. I can't help you, but I thought I should mention that your Imgur link isn't working.
  4. Well, to be honest, I have no idea how long the chapters actually are, but my work hours just got cut by 40% because of a certain virus so I'm pretty sure I'll manage!
  5. After going on a few emotional roller coasters lately, I decided I should read something lighthearted for a change. Here we go! All jokes aside, I've been looking forward to this for years and have by some miracle managed to completely evade any spoilers all this time. I figure now that the final chapter is just a week away, the 07th mod for it should be released by the time I finish chapter 7 if I play through one chapter every weekend starting now.
  6. Just finished Totono. I kinda wish I hadn't been spoiled to such an extent beforehand, but I still think it was a great read overall. It was shorter than I expected, though. I thought it would be somewhere on the upper end of the 10-30 hours listed on VNDb, but I finished it all in roughly 10-or-so, even though I'm a pretty slow reader. I'm honestly not sure how to convey my impressions without giving away anything myself, so maybe we should just leave it at that in terms of unmarked text. A few random, spoilery notes:
  7. I'm reading Totono at the moment, and it seems the skip function is broken after It worked just fine before, but now it skips unread text as well although that option isn't selected in the game settings. Is this something I'm going to have to be concerned about for the rest of the game or will it eventually start working properly again? EDIT: Done with the game, and it turned out the skip issue didn't affect that much in the end.
  8. Yeah, I know that part; I just don't know if what happens in SnMD2 is considered the true route of the story or if it's just another "what if" scenario. Kureha's route in the original game felt somewhat like a true route, since it had more chapters, actually had a "final chapter", and but that's probably not the case. I'm guessing the fact that Sakura no Mori Dreamers 2 is a sequel rather than a fandisc might be an indication that what happens in it is canon.
  9. Finished Sakura no Mori Dreamers yesterday! My only real complaints are that the motives of the main antagonist were pretty uninteresting, and there were some major inconcistencies between routes (just like in Princess Evangile, which I also read recently). The one that annoys me most is the fact that Other than these things, I think this was a nice read. The art and the general ambience of the game was great, and the pacing felt well optimized. I liked all of the main characters, and I'm also very happy that there weren't any tsunderes or other overly tropey/stereotypical characters in
  10. Do they mention anywhere in the game that there's a patch to restore the cut content? Because there's nothing on the Steam page and no official posts about it in the forums. I can imagine how disappointed someone would be if they bought this for 22,49€ and played through those 12% of the story without realizing there's a restoration patch.
  11. This is a major issue for me in Sakuranomori Dreamers. There's this strange, extremely drawn-out laugh that you hear occasionally, and it's obviously meant to sound malicious/creepy but actually comes off as too unnatural to be believeable and thus loses its intended effect.
  12. There are a couple of guides on Steam and one on Seiya-Saiga, but the route order differs and none of them have any suggestions as to which order would be preferable. Honestly, I doubt this is a VN with any noteworthy spoilers, so I think you're fine no matter which way you go.
  13. I can't help but feel that this grandpa might dispatch some weird robots at any minute, forcing a certain blue-clad dude to come clean them up with his Mega Busterâ„¢.
  14. Well, I'm glad it's getting localized, but I can't understand why Sekai would pick this over Akeiro, which is Silky's highest rated VN. Furthermore, Kimagure Temptation apparently contains both character appearances and other references from Akeiro that will be lost on anyone who hasn't read it.
  15. The only one I've read is the one on Steam, meaning the all ages release.
  16. Some interesting options in this game. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/6078/WZ1Cb5.png EDIT: No idea why, but images haven't been properly embedded for me these last few weeks.
  17. It's not bad per se, but... [omitted for spoiler reasons]
  18. I imagine it's because most players aren't very interested in looking at a dude in those situations. For the same reason, they often make the protagonist silent in h-scenes, even if he's voiced in the rest of the game.
  19. I like Tomoyo as a character, but Tomoyo After ruined it all for me and made it so I'm unlikely to find any enjoyment from her route in Clannad ever again.
  20. I've also been eagerly awaiting this, but it has still managed to fly under my radar somehow. It was only a few days ago that I realized that "Oh, Sakura no Mori Dreamers will be released on thursday", which was a pleasant surprise. Looking forward to start reading it this weekend!
  21. Then there are a few protagonists that I actually would prefer unvoiced. The first one that comes to mind is Makoto in School Days. His pathetic moaning during h-scenes still haunts my mind to this day. I didn't realize until after I was done with that VN that I could've probably turned his voice off in the sound options.
  22. As long as it's just some run-of-the-mill self-insert protagonist, I don't really mind if he's unvoiced, but I think it becomes a problem when it's one with a strong, established personality, like Yuuji in Grisaia. I much prefer if a protagonist like that is voiced, and I think the only counter-argument I'd (reluctantly) accept is if it has to be cut for budget reasons.
  23. Note that if you want to read SeaBed, you should go for the recently released Switch version, if possible. It has new scenes and illustrations that are currently not present in the PC version.
  24. You can turn off shields for specific sites by clicking the Brave logo to the right of the address bar while you're browsing them.
  25. To those of you already playing, are there a lot of puns? I saw someone post this on Reddit and thought it was pretty brilliant! If there's more where that came from, I'm looking forward to this more than ever!
