Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. Yeah, there's a whole bunch of errors in that walkthrough. I had to wing it on several occasions to progress.
  2. "My Fair Princess" has been released

    Sounds like a mess. The VNDb score isn't very good either, so I'll sit this one out, at least for now.
  3. Maybe we should mention the One True End tag as well. There are a lot of VNs where there are several different routes but only one of them is canon, meaning stuff that happens in other routes (like romancing other heroines) tend to only be considered "what if" scenarios. If you're into having multiple romance options, I'm thinking this might also affect your opinion of the VN, since it can make the other heroines seem somewhat irrelevant. And yeah, Kana isn't the only option in Kana Imouto, although the VN mostly revolves around her.
  4. What are you playing?

    You just replied to a post that's seven years old and was made by someone who's been inactive on these forums for six years. (You probably didn't realize you were actually on the first page of this thread rather than the last one!)
  5. What are you playing?

    Nothing a couple of nights in Kajou City couldn't fix.
  6. What are you playing?

    The Steam version of Hoshimemo was in a league of its own in that regard. I wouldn't be surprised if the total number of typos exceeded the amount in all other VNs I've read put together. It was plain ridiculous, and also served as solid proof that the localization team really didn't put much effort into their work.
  7. What are you playing?

    Oh, that's unfortunate. Hopefully, it'll at least be finished by the time Eternal Heart rolls out. (And let's keep our fingers crossed the end result is a good one.)
  8. What are you playing?

    Ah, I read the Steam version. It had so many issues (an enormous amount of typos, grammatical errors and even untranslated text), the publisher actually started a retranslation project. Checking VNDb, it seems that new translation was finished just a few months ago. I have no idea how good it is, but I guess I'll find out when I reread the VN.
  9. What are you playing?

    Have they fixed the translation yet? There were a ton of errors when I read it last year. I actually didn't think Hoshimemo was all that special at that time, but I've found myself appreciating it more and more since then. There's something about it that has made it stick to the back of my mind in a way that not many other VNs have managed, but I can't quite pinpoint the reason for it. In any case, I'll probably reread the entire VN once the fandisc is released.
  10. What are you playing?

    Okay, I'm done with Maggot Baits. So was it worth it? It's hard to say, honestly. I actually thought the underlying story was pretty good once it kicked off, but all that gore and rape is quite offputting and there's so much of it. After having seen it all, I can safely say that there's really no need for it to be as extensive and graphic as it is. At least for me personally, it didn't add any value to the VN whatsoever. It felt like it was there purely for shock factor or for those people who are actually into stuff like that. A lot of the scenes were really long too, and it felt like a pain in the ass reading it all just because I didn't want to risk missing out on any story-related dialogue (which were in some of the scenes). If you're considering reading Maggot Baits and know you're easily disturbed, you should probably stay away. There's an option to decrease the level of the explicit content, but I don't know how much of a difference it actually makes. I'm pretty sure the dialogue won't be changed much (if at all) and that's plenty disturbing in and of itself.
  11. It's finally here... MAGGOT BAITS!!!!

    Anything's possible as long as you look cool doing it!
  12. It's finally here... MAGGOT BAITS!!!!

    I imagine it's the same thing with Himawari then. I remember them using "crimson" to the point of me considering making it a drinking game but ultimately deciding against it because I didn't want to die from alcohol poisoning.
  13. It's finally here... MAGGOT BAITS!!!!

    What's the deal with pomegranates in this VN? They keep repeating it over and over and over again as a means to describe a color. Is the Japanese script this repetitive or is it a case of the English translator not being very imaginative? There are a whole bunch of other words that could be used instead, but for one reason or another, they just keep referring to everything as "pomegranate". Well, there was that one time when they went with "crimson"... but then they followed it up right away with "like a pomegranate".
  14. The story is worth the hassle. That said, I'd really recommend you use a guide for YU-NO, so you know exactly which things to click and how many times. I'd probably go insane if I'd tried going into it blind, considering all the different paths and jumping back and forth that is required to progress.
  15. What are you playing?

    I've finished Kotori's and Iyo's routes so far. I've kinda assigned Azusa's route (and later Yumi's) along with The Outer Worlds as therapy for my soul inbetween Maggot Baits sessions. All in all, Nanairo Reincarnation was beyond my expectations both quality-wise and in terms of how heavy the story would be. Like I mentioned previously in this thread, I originally expected it to be just some regular comedy nukige, but it went well above that to the point where I'd say it's probably the game/VN that has surprised me the most (in a positive way) this year. I guess I should thank you for your earlier input, since that was what steered me towards checking it out!
