  1. Making my life hell was mainly Kukrushka and Yuriko. With Kukrushka it's really hard to take her out if you can't logic her identity. If she lasts till the later stages then she's probably made enough friends to be near impossible to vote out. Usually her poor logic is her downfall, but if she isn't in a position to make a mistake it can be really hard. Yuriko *can* be worse than her if Yuriko sets her sights on the player, but usually she picks a sacrifice each round to target and you just have to wait until she accumulates enough dislike from everyone or refuses to say she's human.
  2. I really love this game. I don't do well in multiplayer environments *and* I love AI, so a singleplayer social deduction game is something I've always looked forward to. All the better that this game has an actual story to tell, with actual characters. I love the story, the characters, and the gameplay. This game makes me a happy bean. I think the best part is that the characters have personalities, and these personalities inform gameplay. Here's some rambling on how gameplay functions: I think, in the end, what really makes my day are the deductions. Spending a few minutes looking over all the reports and systematically detecting all the enemies is absolutely fantastic. Raqio is the best.
  3. I have no idea what this Process of Elimination is, but it looks awfully interesting. I'm hoping it's a proper mystery the player can partake in. Those are hard to write, and with everyone supposedly being a detective I wonder how distinct and interesting the cast will be.
  4. Hmm... The biggest strength of the novels, I felt, was tied to the writing (specifically, narration and descriptions). I look forward to see how it fares in anime form. The premise itself is already good enough to warrant interest.
  5. Funny, I had the same experience of starting with Index, giving up, and switching to Railgun which I've actually finished a season of. I enjoyed it, but I've got a vendetta against anime teasing ships that won't ever develop -- or at least in a timely manner -- so I've never really felt like continuing it.
  6. I never actually finished the first season, despite holding it in high esteem. Probably just busy at the time. Still, there's something going on with anime these days. Sequels to old stuff returning. I think the mainstream popularity may be causing a shift in the purpose and value of anime.
  7. I've never watched Elaina, but what I hear generally interests me. That said, without actually watching it I can't tell how I'd take to it or its particular execution. The idea of a self-centred but powerful person who doesn't help others if she doesn't need to unless she feels like it appeals to me, but it depends on how its done. Even if the character is written that way unintentionally I could still like or dislike it. Still, I watch like one anime show per semester these days, so the point is moot. I won't be watching this any time soon.
  8. In nearly all cases, yes. The companies that license these games for English release put them on Steam.
  9. Did I? Last I recall about that show I found that the anime and LN seemed to diverge, and should be taken as such disparate experiences. Though in respect to the LN I agree with Dreamysyu here. It's well paced until it isn't anymore, at which point it's hard to just keep going. The stuff I recall recommending against was actually the Bakarina light novels, as I find the anime works better as the medium.
  10. I've admittedly failed to catch the announcements, so this thread serves as a reminder to go look.
  11. In the oddest way, I'll present a VN that probably isn't what you're looking for but does fulfil the idea. Fxxx Me Royally!! Additionally the other translated title from the same developer would also fulfil the conditions. However, if you don't care for Otome, I've got to admit that I'm all out of ideas. Barring some games that have scenes for the bad guys, like Alicesoft games, or something like School Days which has a bit of everything but it's really minor, I don't recall clearly any games which fit these characteristics.
  12. The ones I've played from them have had good translations by my standard.
  13. Hm. I don't follow new Japanese releases as much, so I wouldn't know. I have seen a lot of localisations, though, especially from Shiravune, but I've not played most of them so I can't tell how "high end" the games are, either.
  14. Happy New Year to everyone, late as it may be.
  15. Is this finally the time to use my power?? Well, I do come in peace, and if you desire that I change down my profile no sooner than January 6th my earliest convenience to do so will be on January 6th itself, so I will do so then.
