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. I suppose in a few ways. To start with, I have, in general, less time. Whereas before I actively looked for long VNs as the only way to get immersed in the VN world, these days I haven't found a VN I'd call 'short' for years. I take ages, no matter the length. Before I was also both more and less picky. I used to only play all the big and famous VNs (Like Muv-Luv: Alternative, which I wouldn't play today), but then transitioned into playing all the romance ones, and now those really are all I play, aside from gameplay or mystery ones. I enjoy the writing much more. The reason VNs are my medium of choice are because I prefer dialogue and character interaction over all other sorts of writing. That said, before I'd consume things just to say I finished them, even when I didn't understand what I was reading or had to filter out a bunch of sentences for being unable to parse them or understand their meaning (due to wrong grammar, for instance). I'm also worse at finishing things before starting something else. More new things are coming out these days than they were previously, which is very good. I'm at a point where even if the industry implodes tomorrow, as long as all announcements we currently have are released I will never lack for reading material.
  2. Fuwanovel Confessions

    30 minutes is no problem when you're browsing and reading stuff on this forum, but I have on occasion taken well over two hours writing a post, so I understand how it can consume some time. I understand how notifications can impose negative habits or tendencies. My worst behaviours related to notifications are definitely me wasting away days waiting for replies where I didn't know when they'd come. That said, I only waste days when I've days to waste. As I'm in a busy period right now I really pay very little attention to notifications.
  3. Looking Back On YMK: A Drug That Makes You Dream

    It's so crazy, the way everything was so foreign to me. Everything the girls did or pushed the protagonist to do... It's so out of the realm of possibility, me even considering it or sharing any of those feelings, that I enjoyed the strange, foreign experience. As you might guess, I share your opinion.
  4. Fall 2019 Anime Discussion

    You may have meant something else.
  5. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    Though there is no such post (I believe there were some, at one point) now, I'll see about either finding an old one or making a new one explaining the editor. For spoiler tags, all you have to do is click the eye icon in the editor. Whenever you type a reply, you are doing so in a box, and at the top left there should be an icon that looks like an eye. If you hover over it, it'll display a tooltip saying 'Spoiler'. That is the button you need to click.
  6. Shiny Days Walkthrough

    Certainly abandoned. Cease and desist with all hope efforts.
  7. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    Blast. All these rave reviews and now this. I can see why this VN was success. I guess I really will have to get it.
  8. Birthday thread

    Can't you tell I'm part of the old man club by the fact that I only consume moege and romance?
  9. Birthday thread

    Happy birthday to @littleshogun there. Edit: Idem @Kiriririri
  10. What are you playing?

    Say what you will. I really find his art charming these days. It used to be slightly less cute, methinks.
  11. I would be very interested in any depictions of native speakers referring to themselves in 3rd person you may have found in media or literature (by which I mean books).
  12. Fureraba Walkthrough

    Ah, yes. That's my bad. I've actually decided not to include the EXTRA because it is too difficult to spot them all, and they seem to vary depending on factors I couldn't quite nail down.
  13. I initially had a poor impression of the characters and interactions. That issue was resolved the longer I played. That said, I believe the strength of this title is how much it explores the setting. Instead of telling us a single story, it lets us explore 30 different ways things could've gone. On this aspect, I can think of few games similar on this scale (Cinderella Phenomenon, also quite good, is one of them).
  14. Steam Prison. I enjoyed this one thoroughly.
