  1. Well, since I just happened to have played it recently (and replayed it... twice), I can share my opinion on the matter. Whatever the opposite you said, except when it comes to liking things. Or, in other words, I like it a lot.
  2. You're right. Less than two years is beyond record time! Interested to see if something's going on here or if we're just lucky. Actually, I believe the translator was the very same Bango that did Newton and the Apple Tree, so perhaps his work was swift, along with the rest of the process. And I vouch for Newton's quality being perfectly fine for its purposes. And so, this will take as long (or less?) than an instalment of Flowers. Gosh, I hope each instalment of that is sizeable on its own, or I'd feel terrible for the people waiting two years for each crumb.
  3. I guess there's no real reason not to change the title at this point, so there you go. Apologies for not getting to this earlier, but I was waiting for the forum updates to conclude and was otherwise occupied yesterday. I should have, in theory, fixed the common path.
  4. I don't know about mistranslations, especially so long as the whole is coherent, but changing things or even characters really does not bother me in the slightest and I suspect may even be the cause for my love of it, in the case of Estelle, for instance.
  5. What game are you starting with? Trails in the Sky, I presume? I'd be very interested in your impressions. The first two games really left an impression on me, and I've replayed them way too many times, considering I never went on to finish anything in the rest of the series Have to admit, it was the fantastic localisation+protagonist that really dragged me into these games.
  6. @Eclipsed Under what rock did you pull out that yuri game I knew nothing of!? I mean, not to say I always know about all releases or anything, but I know these developers (Nurse Love Addiction) and find it odd I never registered that this thing released, much less that it had a fandisc/sequel. These guys have been escaping me, so I better register this all down.
  7. What do you mean by "most of this"? I've never read the manga chapters or anything else other than the main Umineko VN itself, but I firmly believe that playing it twice means you can come up with most solutions yourself. It's just that people are unlikely to play it twice for obvious reasons
  8. Okay, so, Umineko is interesting in how it wants the players to solve the things (Not only that, but I'll focus purely on the episode murder mysteries).
  9. Oh, that above me, yes yes.
  10. I recommend Rimu from Master Magistrate. ...But this isn't really a typical romance VN, so her route only occurs at the very end, and through the middle you only get a vague impression.
  11. Took me a while this year.
  12. Just in case anyone is interested in knowing, the new role I've been given managed to lock my permissions such that I could not see any forums or forum posts; not even the one announcing my change in role. I thought, for moments, that the forum had imploded.

    Gura is interesting. There's something to be said about the sheer excitability and "wholesomeness" of mannerisms like repeating random sounds instead of swearing* during panic moments. Furthermore, she frequently plays horror games which always attract people, and adds to that a commentary style that is prone to jinxing and overconfidence. Crafted as it may be, it's the right move to lead to the best situations for both the player and any watchers. Finally she's very good at just chatting. A key element. I think she may have mentioned at some point that she keeps a list of conversation topics to bring up whenever commentary seems to be dying. *As a person, I do not swear in public. Even when reading aloud it is difficult to me. In a strange juxtaposition, I seem to find casual swearing to be hilarious. Even more so with Hololive because of how it contrasts with the image and roleplay that is being put on. There's the reason I end up liking Amelia Watson so much
  14. @Dergonu I seem to recall you might've played that yuri game. Am I misremembering?
