  1. こんにちは、皆!元気ですか? このトピックは、「あ、日本語でトピックはないな~」と思ったときに練習のために作ったぞ! ここは多くのメンバーは日本語を勉強してるですね?だから、話しましょう!話題は何でもいいです (lord, I hope I got this right)
  2. Fellas, could someone please explain to me how this patch would (as some people have been saying 'round some places) encourage piracy? I can't wrap my head around that, so it'd be nice to have some other insights.
  3. Thank you for taking the initiative to bring this game to people the way it was meant to be played. I wish you the best of luck.
  4. New VN localization company: MoeNovel

    Someone needs to tell the poor suckers who bought this game about this. I'm sure that a bunch of people bought it without even thinking about what's missing (or noticing). Seriously, use twitter, facebook, tumblr, whatever... Just tell people that they're being screwed over and called morons. They probably can't handle the possibility that they screwed up.
  5. Nice selection, though make sure you don't rely on quotes too much.
  6. I actually think it looks better with the wings. I mean, c'mon, it's not everyday you see a winged dragon as a wrestler.
  7. I'm glad to see there'll be a second season of this. I really liked it, even if deep down it wasn't anything particularly special. Which translation are you reading, dude?
  8. What are you playing?

    Started Danganronpa. Gotta say, the game's got style. Oh, and it's fucking awesome.

    Remove ero... fine... But removing stuff like sex jokes? Kissing? I think that's going a wee bit too far. I mean, c'mon, might as well change all the characters' names to English names. Oh, and while you're at it, remove any reference to Japanese culture. These guys are becoming the 4kids of VNs. Initially, I had hoped that they'd somewhat succeed, but they're crossing the line in the sand now... I want nothing more than to see them disappear now. I can't believe the original developers actually agreed to this censorship. Let me say something: if you can't handle shit like kissing or sex jokes in your fictional story, then you should probably go look for something else. Censorship is insulting not just to the original creators, but also to your viewers. You're basically calling them morons. It's like trying to add sugar to your rice because you don't like salty food. Why don't you go eat some chocolate, then?
  10. Describe Your Ideal Visual Novel

    I'll join this discussion properly later as I need to go to bed, but I'm just going to say that my ideal VN needs two things: - Lots of Dudeness and good ol' wisdom. - Polyamory. If you follow me on twitter you will know that I have made this statement there before. Since I'm not monogamous, getting into VNs that have romance as the main focus becomes excruciatingly difficult to me (though I do manage to do it at one point). And yeah, I know there are plenty of VNs out there with harem endings, and I guess that's already SOMETHING... But those are almost all nukige, which just isn't as much fun. Also, it'd be nice if the girls would also get other boyfriends, because I feel that a single guy getting all the girls in the story can feel... kinda sexist. There's nothing wrong with pretty ladies having multiple relationships.
  11. What are you playing?

    Started Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete. Did anyone else try this? It seems pretty neat so far, though admittedly I have only read the first few scenes since I've been busy (and lazy with pretty much everything, haha...)
  12. Has recent Anime felt less impactful?

    I agree with you completely. Having been studying literature, I realized that our tastes change historically. I believe that what exactly we judge as an impactful piece of fiction varies greatly not just from person to person, but also from era to era. Hell, for all I know, if a Baroque poet time traveled to our era, he might've said that Milky Holmes is the greatest work ever conceived in the face of this planet (just an example...)
  13. Megatokyo Kickstarter

    I didn't know Megatokyo still existed. o_o
  14. IRC Flood Extravaganza

    I could kiss you.
  15. Your Worst VN Experience

    I don't remember exactly how the story went, but I think it was because Shiro felt it was his duty to protect others.
  16. How to make a video game

    Let's not forget Cave Story.
  17. You mean... there's none? o_O
  18. What Internet Did For Brazilian People

    I'm actually surprised Americans aren't doing anything despite the whole NSA leak. I don't understand how anyone can just stand there knowing that your government has been spying on you.
  19. How to make a video game

    I'm not too well versed in this, but I supposed you would at least need a programmer, an artist, a level designer, a scenario writer, and someone in charge of promoting your game, perhaps... You could just look at the credits for Doom. If applied to today's standards, it's pretty much an indie game (and really, the guys over at Id really were a bunch of dudes with nothing to do and who really liked video games).
  20. Your Worst VN Experience

    I never interpreted Shirou's behavior during Fate route as sexism. Seems like he was just being overprotective.
  21. What are you playing?

    They're one of my favorite couples now. They were very well developed, and without too much melodrama. The ichaicha was dericious too. On an unrelated note, I am having mixed feelings about Miu's route in D-R. It's not bad, but she's just too damn jealous. Really puts me down, considering I'm not into the whole monogamy thing. I gotta say though...
  22. Challenge solidbatman/Suggestions 4 Me

    Remember 11 in 11 days! (Actually, I was thinking of having a 22 day limit, since you look through the perspective of 2 different characters).
  23. Has recent Anime felt less impactful?

    That's because they're mainstream anime. The kind of anime we watch have a very limited target audience even in Japan. Also, I don't think Shingeki should be grouped with Naruto and One Piece, since, as far as I know, it really feels more like a Seinen then anything (yeah yeah, I know it's published in a shonen magazine...). Its themes are very thought-provoking and the world is very detailed and rich, so I believe it walks hand-in-hand with FMA and Evangelion. Same goes for Psycho-pass.
