    As for VN's, my favorite franchise is Zero Escape, my favorite game and VN is Virtue's Last Reward, Danganronpa and Infinity are my other favorite VN series.

    I love bashing Muv Luv (especially Extra and Alternative) whenever I can, and I praise Zero Escape wherever possible. However, I'm open to debating on dissenting opinions. Feel free to rant to me about 999 or Virtue's Last Reward or the Danganronpa games, I'm all ears

  1. Fuwanovel Confessions

    Confession: I need to develop self discipline ASAP.
  2. My profile was viewed 13000 times. Wow what the fuck 

  3. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    I'm trying to slay the Darklurker and now I'm out of fucking human effigies so joke's on me I guess. I might move on to NG+ afterwards, I'm hungry for a Dark Souls game and DS1 isn't cutting it (and my laptop's WAY too weak for DS3).
  4. What were you doing in 2006 - 2009?

    I was learning how to read and write for part of it.
  5. Not explicitly- we're talking about HIGH SCHOOLERS. I disagree, "We're in a collapsing underground structure and we fear for our lives and so we'll have sex" just sounds silly (there's at least one canon sex scene though, so... lol)
  6. FU-WA HIS-TO-RY! FU-WA HIS-TO-RY! Congrats! What's your favourite novel? Not VN, outright novel
  7. Recommend me a 4~7/10 VN

    Never7 is a genuinely nice mediocre game. (it deserves a serious review though)
  8. Show yourself off (RL picture thread)

    I dunno why but I find this photo and everything about it beautiful I wish the best
  9. Update: Shortly after this post, my "m" key broke, which means that if I want to type "m", I copy and paste the letter from somewhere, same for its capitalization. This incidentally means that I use Windows' On-Screen Keyboard to type M, as that's the easiest way.
  10. Purple Software's Unique Take on Text Boxes

    I really like the sound of this idea. It could work very well, but I'd presume that it'd require Muv Luv Alternative levels of budgeting and positioning/tweaking.
  11. I could just get this and I'd be satisfied for the next couple years. (ok being serious though, I'd also want YU-NO, Chaos; Head Noah, Net High, Shin Hayarigami, Kamaitachi no Yoru and most importantly the remaining 3 chapters of Higurashi (goddammit gangamamer))
  12. It can definitely add a lot of character, charisma and significance, but the Nintendo DS era proved, quite definitively, that VNs can be expressive, varied and engaging even without it. (I'm thinking about Ace Attorney and 999 here, mainly) I don't think I've ever decided no voices was better than any provided VA, though.
  13. Fetishes in VN/eroge

    I think that the archetypal nature of many characters and storylines let people ignore what it is they're beating their meat to. There are so many common, trite and unrealistic situations/events/characterizations in eroge that it starts to make the audience view the VN's perspective as sort of its own perspective of rules. These inconsistencies (wrt. real life) such as deflowering/first sex always going smoothly, the girl always orgasming, unrealistic amounts of sperm and stamina etc. make us implicitly think "Okay this is obviously not realistic sex so I can suspend judgment on what I'm seeing." I call this "hentai logic", because the eroge scene's tropes in this regard very closely mirror the hentai industry. "Hentai logic", in other words, lets us excuse the myriad occurrences of sexism, rape (violation of consent, in many small and dismissed ways), and manipulation, which leads to a greater amount of people who can stomach fictional fetishes that are outright disgusting and tragic ("otherwise"). I'm still trying to come to terms on how valid that argument is in terms of moral ground. "Hentai logic" lets us ignore the consequences of the actions we fap to. I believe that's why we so often see people whose fetishes in fiction don't always transfer to real life.
  14. You are a pirate!

    I'm a pirating shit. I don't see how pirating VNs with only fan translations hurts the industry, assuming that they cannot be bought easily from outside Japan. Whether we're actually entitled to do so is another matter (I don't claim any ethical or moral high ground) but if it is not even offered outside Japan, I feel it's a sort of "victimless crime". I don't know if I'd agree that I "don't give half a fuck about the industry". I get your point that we need to be far better at supporting VN companies, but pirates aren't necessarily exclusively pirates. What I mean is that even pirates buy stuff. I, for example, have pirated most of the VNs I played but I do own Clannad, Subahibi, all Steam releases of Higurashi (first 5 chapters), Danganronpa V3, 999, Virtue's Last Reward, et cetera. Does that count for anything? (Admittedly, I should buy Grisaia, Muv Luv and Umineko ASAP because I did pirate them. However, I believe those are technically the only VNs on Steam that I have pirated.) I feel it does, but I can't back that assertion up.
  15. at least I can enjoy the intense ludonarrative resonance the average imouto route creates ("oh, these people are practically siblings but there's no concern of possible abuse, manipulation or grooming in this relationship? ok") childhood friends are 99% snoozefests
