  1. How to make a baby in Visual Novel ?

    I don't know why you think they might get pregnant; all they're doing is having sex, it's not like they're having unprotected hand holding.
  2. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    It's not as if Aokana was terribly far off from being good. All the building blocks were there, they just needed to fit together a bit differently.
  3. Tragic backstories that made you cry

    Really only two VNs have made me cry so far, but I'm hoping the count will get higher in the future. For now: From Grisaia: From Euphoria:
  4. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    I meant more in the sense that she starts out completely useless but is able to overcome all obstacles through the power of friendship and plot devices.
  5. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    I completely agree with the first half of this statement and completely disagree with the second half. Asuka's a battle shounen protagonist. (Not that I'm advocating for the archetype, merely pointing it out.)
  6. Have you read Little Busters? For the most part, the characters in that actually feel like Highschoolers.
  7. What are you playing?

    Read Fate first, you'll get over it.
  8. What are you playing?

    If you're not into time travel shenanigans then you're probably not going to like it, though I could be mistaken as I'm still pretty early in it.
  9. What are you playing?

    I'm about three hours into both Chuusotsu 1st Graduation and Newton and the Apple Tree. Chuusotsu has unfortunately left very little impression so far other than that it serves as a reminder that your sprites shouldn't stare at the screen when your story isn't in first person. Newton and the Apple Tree on the other hand has been amazing so far. The story, the comedy, the music, the characters... all the aspects are good in their own right but just as importantly they intermesh in perfect harmony. I realize I've only scratched the surface of the novel so far, but I'd be genuinely surprised if it didn't land in my top 5 VNs. As a bonus point to Newton and the Apple Tree, this cutscene is perfection:
  10. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    While this thread is active again, has there been any update on the physical kickstarter rewards? Last I heard shipment had been delayed until January and I suspect that January is no longer the plan.
  11. What are you playing?

    I finished MLA. While it was good, it's in this sort of awkward position where it needs the context from Extra and Unlimited in order to be good but at the same time it's not good enough to justify drudging through those. From here I'm just going to keep my hopes up for Integrate, though I'll probably tackle some of the side stories at some point.
  12. What are you playing?

    By combining my knowledge of how storytelling works with my knowledge of how spoilers work, I've most likely inferred an appropriate hint: shit goes down.
  13. What are you playing?

    The post I read mentioned two scenes: It sounds to me like I'm not missing much, so thanks for the help. I have zero interest in h-content unless it provides some form of entertainment beyond being ero, the fact that I'd have to skip the h-scenes is the primary reason I haven't bothered with the patch.
  14. What are you playing?

    I'm still working through MLA but it's been brought to my attention that some of the gore was censored out of the steam version. Does anyone know if the 18+ patch restores it, and if so is it abundant and/or graphic enough to be worth needing to wade through h-scenes?
  15. Most disappointing VNs of 2019?

    The worst VNs I read in 2019 in no particular order were: Trick and Treat, Kokonoe Kokoro, and any installment of Grisaia Phantom Trigger (excluding volume 5.5). The VNs that fell furthest shy of my expectations (and therefore the most disappointing) in order were: World End Syndrome and Aokana. As an honorable mention, Muv Luv Extra + Unlimited also fell far shy of my expectations going in, but I gave up on those expectations before the OP in Extra so I don't find them as disappointing as the other two.
