    As far as Visual Novels are concerned, these are my current preferences:
    Romance - Comedy - Psychological Thriller - Mystery - Chickens

    Action, and Fantasy don't affect my enjoyment much.

    I despise Horror, Drama, and Sports, however.

  1. Hohoho. This yet lives? Well, so do I.
  2. Interesting that you'd say that. The common opinion of Grisaia back when most people played it was that it was great because of the comedy, and that the common route was chock-full of it. But like anything else, it ultimately depends on what one likes. Any individual scene from the common route continues to be a barrel of laughs to me.
  3. Argh, dammit. I think I kinda dropped that game in the middle of the second episode, but I know I had a load of notes on it and everything. I don't want to just spoil myself on it all now. Hm............
  4. @Eclipsed And there you have CLANNAD. I've never actually read the After Story to completion. I don't think I have it in me. I'd love to hear your impressions on the anime as well, because I think it takes all that is best in CLANNAD: i.e., they do the Kotomi route thing and join all the school characters together rather than keep them constantly isolated from one another. It neglects CLANNAD's side characters and stories, but as you put it, they're there more for thematic reasons the anime would be unable to replicate regardless.
  5. @Eclipsed I did the anime first. Clannad is, more than most other Key VNs, a "hunting" VN. That is, a VN in which you're supposed to explore and discover the endings yourself, with the bad endings generally giving you a clue as to what you missed. A product of another time when people afforded the game and would have no money for anything else for months so they'd spend all their time playing around with it.
  6. @Eclipsed In a rare turn of events, I'd actually argue the anime adaptation of Clannad is better, with the Visual Novel as an appendix if you want to spend more time in the world. In either case, don't shy away from just doing the heroines you feel like (and then maybe watching the anime, because it does differ).
  7. Well, from what I'm hearing I guess Island should be on my list. I guess I skipped over it in my "I bet the romance sucks, not going to play it" phase.
  8. You can also have a gander at this series of yuri visual novels: https://vndb.org/v16610
  9. Just making this post about the localisation announcement for the newest Ace Attorney game. Whether this is a Visual Novel or Game, eh, this includes a story mode where the game plays itself so let's say it's a Visual Novel then
  10. Which, of course, you tested.
  11. Yesterday NekoNyan went ahead and did a bunch of announcements, as can be found here: https://nekonyansoft.com/blog/time-to-reveal-the-sekrit-projects-and-other-news-part-1 And in a nice bit of a prank, they immediately followed up with an unexpected(?) part two! And indeed, unexpected announcements were found within: https://nekonyansoft.com/blog/time-to-reveal-the-sekrit-projects-and-other-news-part-2 I have to say, NekoNyan has successfully established itself as consistently producing excellent titles. One looks at their translation teams and we get translators like Blick Winkel a
  12. Okay, I'm not the most knowledgeable but the combat system is all about collecting cards (aka characters) which each have their own abilities/attacks. Each card/character has an associated faction (i.e Helman, Rance Castle, Zeth, JAPAN, etc). For each battle, you choose one card from each faction to act as leader and you are able to use only the leaders' abilities. All the other cards from the same faction contribute bonus stats/attack to their leader. A number of battles are designed specifically so that you choose the characters that have the best abilities to deal with each battle
  13. That's fine. The game chose to focus on certain things and neglected others, and even the gameplay system is quite interesting, so it's not to everyone's taste. You mentioned patches and there were a couple, actually. One added a non-canon event/card for winning the popularity poll, Suzume (and Sieg lost by just a bit, nooooooooooo). There were, I think, a couple of characters added through updates, and also an event with La Vaswald, adding her to the game, though mostly as a bonus. Finally, I *think* one H-Scene got added? Anyway, others would know better than I, and while the updat
