  1. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    I haven't dared looking further into the walkthrough before (since I want to avoid spoilers at all costs), but I just did a Ctrl + F search for "humiliation scene" and it actually seems like only Rain's and Nanoha's routes contain those. In other words, will I not have to worry about battle timings in the remaining routes? That would be a load off my mind.
  2. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    Am I correct in assuming that I'm on track to the good endings as long as I don't get these so called "humiliation scenes"? If so, how do I know if I've triggered a humiliation scene? There's plenty of humiliation and bad stuff going on in some of the regular scenes as well, so I'm not sure I'd be able to tell them apart unless there's some obvious indicator. I'm asking all this because I want to pick up all the good endings right away in order to unlock the scenario skip function.
  3. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    So how do I know which battles actually affect the endings? Being told by the walkthrough to finish "3rd stage" within 2:15 doesn't really help me when I have no idea what "3rd stage" even is. I've checked everywhere I can think of in-game (preparation screen before battles, UI and pause screen during battles, etc), but I've not found a single mention of any "stages". The only things that are numbered are the chapters, but that can't be what they're talking about either, because I just finished Nanoha's route and there aren't enough chapters when compared to the stage list in the walkthrough.
  4. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    Does anyone have any idea what "stages" is referring to in this walkthrough? It's obviously not battles, since there are way more of those, so are they actually talking about the story chapters but calling them "stages" instead for some weird reason? (meaning chapter 10 in Rain's route would count as stage 1, chapter 11 as stage 2, and so on) If so, how am I supposed to interpret the timings for the respective endings? Do I need to finish the final battle of each chapter within the listed time limit, or every individual battle within the chapters? I also have no idea what they mean by "[First priestess prompt]" in Nanoha's route (which is the one I'm currently reading), although I should already be past that point in the game. This all seems overly complicated for no reason whatsoever.
  5. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    Finished the first route yesterday and I'm currently halfway (I'm guessing) into the second one. Can't say I enjoy the gameplay very much, but since it's not that time-consuming, it's not really a big deal. By far, the biggest issue with Baldr Sky is that content is flagged as read/unread based on scenes rather than individual lines of text. This means that now that I'm in the second route, I have to wade through a ton of dialogue I've already read in the first route, just because there are some (often very minor) alterations that marks entire scenes as unread, thus rendering them unskippable. There is a force skip function, but using it would mean I run the risk of missing out on the new content that's been added here and there, so it's not exactly an option. Will I have to keep repeating these same scenes over and over again whenever I go down a different route? If so, I'd have to say this is one of the worst VN experiences I've ever had, despite me loving the story, characters and music.
  6. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    There's really no cause for concern here; it's not like it invalidates any of the stuff that happens in the routes. It's just an epilogue to the core story and fits into the grand scheme of things no matter which route you went down.
  7. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    Since this is a spin-off, it's fine to read it without any prior knowledge, but you might not appreciate the characters as much, and, as wyldstrykr said, some references will go over your head. I still think you should read the original trilogy first though, simply because it's awesome (or at least it was to me). Grisaia no Kajitsu is by far the best out of the three, but the sequels are still worthwhile reads, although they're not nearly as good as the first one.
  8. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    Ah, I figured using the punch button several times should result in a punch combo, consecutive kicks in a kick combo, and so on, but I guess it doesn't work like that here then. Gotta admit though that it makes the whole system of allocating attack skills to specific skill slots seem a bit redundant if the game is just automatically gonna shuffle them around without any regard to attack range in the end. Kinda feels like they overcomplicated things for no reason, but I guess it might make more sense later on when I have more attacks at my disposal.
  9. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    Getting the good endings right away definitely seems like the best idea then, so I'll go with that!
  10. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    Got started on Baldr Sky a couple of hours ago. The combat is making me pretty confused, honestly. Is it normal for completely different types of attacks to occur inbetween the ones you're actually using? I thought I was going to be able to chain together attacks of the same type, but so far, I've been unable to do so. Whenever I punch in melee range, the character switches to the handgun after my first punch, despite the fact that it's set to dash and I'm not actually moving. (And yes, the enemy is within the circle.) Likewise, when I'm trying to low kick, the whatchamacallit energy orb follows after the first kick, although it's set to long range and I'm actually in melee range. Is this really the way it's supposed to work? Seems kinda weird to me to mix in long range attacks in melee range. Another thing. I checked out a walkthrough for the game, and according to that, the routes (or at least the first one) have both a normal and a good ending. Which ending you get is apparently decided based on if you take less or more than two minutes to finish fights in a certain chapter. What I want to know is, will I have to replay the entire game if I want 100% completion, or can I just save at the start of the chapter, go ahead and get the normal ending, replay the fights to get the good one and thus keep the progress from both of them? Or should I just go for the good ending right away?
  11. What are you playing?

    I think we'll leave it at that for now then. In any case, I'll go ahead and put this on my "to do" list!
  12. What are you playing?

    I've been a bit curious about this VN since you first mentioned it. I'm awfully tempted to click on that spoiler box, but I'm afraid it might lessen my own experience if I decide to read it. Any chance you can give some vague hints that don't give away too much?
  13. Your Favorite VN of 2019?

    I read so much good stuff last year, it's pretty much impossible for me to just choose one favorite in particular. When it comes to VNs actually released in 2019, it's a battle between AI: The Somnium Files, Chaos;Child, Damekoi and Bokuten. I considered putting Aokana here too, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations so I'm choosing to omit it from the list. If I have to to pick one of those, I think I'd go with AI: The Somnium Files. It's the only one out of the four that I went into completely blind, and it turned out to be a really great experience with a well-balanced mix of both humor and seriousness. As for VNs that were released earlier but I read in 2019, it's even more difficult to pick a winner. I'd say it's either 999, Chaos;Head, Kazoku Keikaku, Symphonic Rain, Narcissu, YU-NO, Little Busters or Acting Lessons. I'm kinda leaning towards Symphonic Rain, because that was the first one that came to mind when I started racking my brain over this. The soundtrack is amazing, and there's something special about the overall ambience of the game. I have yet to reread a single VN, but Symphonic Rain is one of my top candidates for when it eventually happens.
  14. What are you playing?

    Thanks! Yeah, that definitely fits the bill, although it wasn't nearly as PTSD-inducing for me as chomp, which I still have vivid memories of to this day.
  15. What are you playing?

    Got a link to that CG? I don't remember what it looks like and I can't locate it in the MLA CG gallery @ e-hentai for some reason.
