So I was on this one forum, doesn't really matter which one but let's just say the subject matter is often associated with sexual content, and one user decides to start a thread where people can vent about the things that have been bugging them, but he specifically mentions that it can't be "sexually oriented". >.>
Oh man, I'm sorry to hear that, that sucks.
BTW, made a small change to the first post, sorry for the confusion.
Basically what the topic says, "Insert your rants here". Did a driver cut you off in traffic? Rant. Did you somehow lose your savedata or the power went out before you saved? Rant. Did you discover that someone ate all YOUR nutella!?!? Rant!!!
I'd like to say that ANY kind of rant will be welcomed, but we all know that that would be a lie, so let's establish some points on how to rant.
- No Flaming of any staff/members.
- Use of to many slangs/abuses is HIGHLY discouraged.
- Don't make your topics sexually oriented. (Meaning real 3D sexlife, please keep such things private. Anything else is fine.)
- No religion based bashing/racial comments. (Basically discrimination.)
- We're here to rant. Try to limit your comments to those of empathy.
- No one is talking about you personally. Even if you think they are, they are not. So please do not interpret it as such. (Reffer to first line for this one.)
With that said, here's my first rant.
I've been following tha Hayate no Gotoku! manga for quite some years now, just recently a really really long arc where nothing actually happened just finished, leaving me with the hopes that the story would start to move again with a better pace. Hahaha, I was such a fool, of course that didn't happen!!! Dammit, Hata has been building a lot of plot on the background but it's all stuck!! Nothing happens!!! And when I say years I mean years!! When I picked it up that arc was starting so I've been reading it weekly, really, every week just to see 10 chapters of side characters and then a small progress on the main story. It has been frustrating but I think I've beared with it because it became a mechanical act to check a new chapter every week. Sum to that that just the other day I was reading about the School Rumble manga ending and some people compared Hayate to it, that kind of thing crushes the few hopes I still have in it... But I really hate how things have been building up without nothing happening, just wish he could start to move it a bit faster...
Also, if you're going to spoil something remember to use the tags.
Have fun ranting!!!
Yeah, basically all of what has been said above. You must consider too that VNs are supposed to be "japan only" products, thus they will consider the ways to sell them there. Usually PC VNs are considered something only otakus are into and it's not something everyone sees with good eyes, but there are stories like S;G to put an example, that can be enjoyed by any kind of audience (as opposed to eroges) and considering that, it's easier to sell it if it's a console game than if it is a PC one (again, because of the way that it is seen the people that play that kind of PC games). Of course piracy is a thing too, but with the law over there it is way more difficult to pirate something than it is around here and I don't think they care too much about how foreigners take their games illegally, otherwise at this point there would be no Fuwa. So, basically it is because their main market is only Japan.
It's about marketiizing a product, the reason there are ports of PC to consoles is the same that there are anime of VNs, trying to get more people to buy a product.
With all of that said... it's my personal opinion.
Hasn't winter 2013 not yet started? Seems weird to have the cutoff be in the future.
Indeed, but we have only 11 days of winter at the end of the year, so the upcoming winter season is considered part of the 2014 instead.
Like this: http://i4.minus.com/iEGQjOD6GZE9s.jpg
And here is what we will come out on the few days we still have of this year: MAL
Now as for my votes in no special order:
1. Illya - Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya
Sorry... I had to post this one...
2. Matoi Ryuuko - Kill la Kill
Because based Trigger.
3. Kuroki Tomoko aka Mokocchi - Watamote
Because she IS best girl.
And my last vote and probably only one she will receive
4. Lambda-11 (λ-11) - BlazBlue: Alter Memory
@Hentai Meido Sachi: Pic or hint pls~
Try installing this font: http://goo.gl/Rk6Ezq
Drop it to Windows\Fonts folder.
Makes more sense, drop mine and go with this.
Hmmm... been running some tests on it, but it runs without problems for me. Also checked the config options but there is no way to deactivate the auto-skip function (Ctrl). So, here are two wild guesses since I don't really have idea what's wrong and you already seem to have passed all the routine checks. Try to run it on another computer, must be yours what is giving the problem. And second, even wilder guess, your "Ctrl" key is stuck (yes I know, how would you not notice something like that). In skip mode with the "Ctrl" key pressed you can't stop the skip with a click but if you press "Enter" it will stop skipping. Those are all the ideas I have, so good luck and hope someone else can help you with it.
Random guess: Alps no Shoujo Heidi
Kokonoe, eh? I'm really wanting to play it...
Anyway, will join you if I have the chance. Hope someone else hops aboard!!!
Yeah, I've heard that people is enjoying it despite some (not so) broken chars. Will have to wait for that chance.
Obligatory question: Main and subs? (Though you don't have to answer since you're looking for more people to play with, so it can be a nice surprise for them.)
Why you do this??!!! D:
Still waiting for a chance to play it... Did you play the others?
We used to upload them unzipped as you may know, but then the "read-only files" issue popped up. This is because your torrent client won't let you modify a file while you're still seeding it, so the others don't get mixed data. But even when you stop seeding it, you had to change it's properties to make use of them properly. Then we started zipping them, of course checking the files were properly zipped before uploading them and then redownloading to check again to avoid problems. Or at least that was the method we used back then, but I don't see any problem with keep doing it like this.
Really weird, just downloaded it again and tried it, have the same specs but I can save without problems. Maybe re-download (it's not that heavy). Aside from that I have no ideas.
@Hentai Meido Sachi: More hints pls~
Wow, page 33...? Anyway, currently watching Welcome to the NHK!. I'm at episode 10.
Can be useful for the newbies or the requests.
Hey there!!! I like your style, though some would say ">Comic Sans", I like it. Welcome!
Okay, new one:
Yup, this. Your turn Nay-nay.
Hmmmm.. interesting question. The biggest problem I find is that people usually asks this as if you have to choose one. For me it's not like that, you can call it a VN and a VG at the same time, the only issue is how much of each one it has in it. For example, BlazBlue (http://vndb.org/v6572), you can find it on VNDB and you can certainly classify it as a VN because it has VN elements enough to classify it as one, but in the end it has it's value in being a 2D figthing game, you can easily skip the story mode and just play it. There are too some like Yumina, Kamidori, Brave Soul, etc. with a strong focus on gameplay, but in this case they are usually referred as VNs instead of VGs, maybe it's because they have certainly VN elements but above everything I would say they are classified like that because you don't usually find 18+ material on VGs, and that's where the biggest difference to classify it as a VN or a VG has been marked (or so I think). Now again, I don't go for that kind of classification, because in the end this isn't black or white, it's a spectrum, a bit like saying "read" or "play" when reffering to a VN, both can be right dependng on the circumstances.
How should i start....? Like i said before, it always makes me smile when someone have the trust to share that kind of thing, because it's not an easy thing to do (at least not for most people). I'm glad that you took some of your time to write it Nay, just noticed that you decided to post it where the introduction topics are, a bit unnecessary i think, seeing how you're one of the people that helps run this place, and when a lot of people on the IRC channel knows you, but it just adds to the way you opened to others. It'a also good to see how this community supports others in so wonderful ways. This doesn't sounds too much how i expected, so i'll leave it at that... ^_^"
Keep up the good work Nay~!!!
It's the second game, right? Still have to play it, but regarding your question this is what i could find:
There are 12 battles throughout the VN and in the final battle you need to input some particular command during the finisher to unlock the True ending of the Kishin Hishou and you get some secret ending if you managed to win Doctor West fight with Another Blood in 2nd playthrough.
Aaaand, here is the source:
