    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. I broke my S. Link with Atlus USA. I just don't care anymore.
  2. I deny all allegations
  3. I seem to have forgotten to talk about the part where I wept silently in my bed during the whole ending cutscene all through to the moment when the game throws you back into the main menu.
  4. Welp. Finished FFX a few hours ago. It was amazing overall, and besides that 6-hour long grinding slump, a memorable journey all the way through. Amazing, wonderful, beautiful game. Also finished watching a Drankengard LP (skipped battle scenes). Hated it until the end. Then that ending happened and I laughed about it for the next two hours. Fucking amazing.
  5. I'm kinda hyped, it sounds like my sort of thing. Likewise for ISLAND.
  6. oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit welcome back Awh. That has to be really difficult. I feel for you.
  7. Ratings are purely subjective and thus, except very broad judgments (9's and 10's across the board -> critically acclaimed, an average of 3-4 -> probably not worthwhile) there's really no point to a number-scale review system to consider at large except your private rankings. Some people might only give a 10 to something that's radically changed their life while others give a 10 to games that simply stuck with them. Likewise, some people will give 5 to some VNs they consider trash while for someone else will consider a 5 as "a fun but forgettable romp". There's also the "excelling at different things" angle to consider. I have a particular nukige (Mamankyoushitsu) that I'd definitely give a 9/10 to, but that doesn't mean I think it's as good in any comparable respect as YU-NO, a story I found rather touching and inspirational and would also rate 9/10. The only solution that appears to me, if we are to use a scalar system, is that we'd have to go beyond numbers- A triangle means "a shitty action VN", a square means "a decent action VN", a circle means "an amazing action VN"; horror VNs are judged on a scale of increasing quality on 'banana -> apple -> orange -> kiwi", etc. And of course that in itself is a mess that probably no one wants to get into. TL;DR: Your ratings are pretty much bullshit except the meaning they have for you.
  8. I logged on a fair Sunday morning to the Fuwanovel Forums, expecting my day to begin with a healthy and revivifying dose of rollback outrage. Alas, as it was perchance fated to be, I found myself only want for drama. So deprived of a serene period of happiness, I then deduced that the present circumstances were only full in explanation if one were to consider that the forums, much as I loathe to say it, were on the whole functioning satisfactorily well.
  9. Well by that logic getting in a wank beforehand will also let you be calmer and more level-headed about the whole situation so I see no reason to really get into whether fapping beforehand or not matters here. Also, not fapping releases pheromones? wat
  10. I hate grinding lol that's the problem
  11. FFX: Had to grind before the final boss. Been stuck there for two weeks at this point. Will hopefully finish it within the next week; just got Doublecast for Lulu and I'm about to have another attempt. Superbeat Xonic: I play only a couple songs a day. I liked the track list far more than I thought I would, standouts being Fantasti-K and Timeline. Also started to watch a playthrough of the first Drankengard. Planning on doing the same for 2 and perhaps even 3.
  12. How familiar are you with her? Are you just acquaintances or is she a friend? That will change your approach, I think. I second the notion of telling her in private. That said, I don't know shit about love (except that I might be friendzoning my best female friend). But I feel like you'd regret it if you never told her.
  13. Planescape Torment if you're fine with an old game and Torment: Tides of Numenera if you want something newer (although Numenera is in beta right now). They both play like the first two Fallout games, they're played from an isometric perspective and they focus on narration and dialogue to get through encounters and enjoy the story.
  14. I ended up doing the stupidest thing I could do and booted up Clannad. Art is atrocious but I got through Umineko's original version three years ago, I'll be fine (though the sprites in this VN are even worse). So far -and by that I mean as far as talking to the girl eating anpan in the courtyard- I kind of like the music and the backgrounds, but honestly I feel like the game can't focus on a consistent tone. First it's desolate and depressing, and five minutes later it's your average goofy SoL scene with that blonde kid. I wish it'd stick to the lonely stuff for now, feels like that's what the game is going for the most. Also seems like there'll be a lot of classic high school setting shenanigans (that whole thing with the class president was generic as hell). Edit: I'll also most likely stall it, I really don't have the time for large-scale games right now.
