  1. Hi everyone . Just wanted to see if anyone has some old school and/or rare VN related goods they wanted to show off. I took just a quick photo but I may as well start: Thanks .
  2. If they release that Despair Girls spinoff onto Steam I reckon I'll pick it up. It's the only game I'm missing on the Vita .
  3. Wow, cool news :D! Already played both games on the Vita so I will wait and see. Man, I know this sounds kind of dumb, but I just want to have that completion achievement to pin onto my profile (-u-)...........
  4. Thank you for the further recommendations! I am going to give a whole bunch of these a go . Tiagofvarela !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Awesome, thank you so much everyone! A lot of these I have never even heard of, so I look forward to checking them out when my break starts .
  6. Hello ! It has been a while since I last posted here. I am hoping to do some VN reading throughout the Christmas break, and I wanted to see if you have any shorter titles to recommend? Games like Ame No Marginal are the best for me. Just an hour or two in length. Go in, tell your story and bow out sort of thing. Cool, thanks everyone !
  7. Ah, I see :(. Oh, well. I am going on a trip starting from today anyway so I won't be able to read it :D. By the way, how come emoticons no longer appear unless I click the smiley icons specifically? It's stressing me out (>o<)~ #relax
  8. Hello :). I backed the physical reward tier for $40 (early bird I think). Did anyone else back the same or a higher amount? I wanted to see if the physical copy backers should be expecting a Steam key as well. Can't seem to find any emails with the key and I am unable to login to my Backerkit account for some reason (>-<).
  9. I have seen the anime, so even though I backed the project, I was actually pretty neutral about the release. Then, I saw that these guys are going to do let's read podcasts: http://kazamatsuri.org/introducing-the-clannad-bookclub-win-a-copy-of-clannad-on-steam/ And that makes me pretty excited! This Christmas, I want to have complete buy in and try to enjoy the game as much as possible that way.
  10. Hello everyone ! The year is coming to a close and I am going on holidays in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I have just released Without Within 2 onto Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/398980 This time, Vinty is flying over to Melbourne, a city I love and try to visit on a yearly basis. I have a deep love for places, and I hope I can share some of those feelings with you through this game. Details are on the store page so I will keep this short, but really guys, thank you for putting that Vinty emoticon up onto this forum and all. Seriously appreciate it. I like to act like a tough athlete, but I actually get so nervous during launch weeks, and it is your kindness that helps me get through these times. Thank you so much !
  11. Thank you Emi , and sorry Nosebleed !
  12. Gonna be a hipster and say I want MOON and ONE re-released as well .
  13. Awesome answers everyone! And thank you for the response on VC Rose. I reckon I will give the game a shot, then :).
  14. Thanks for sharing your thoughts everyone :)!
  15. Sorry for starting two topics at once folks. Just got some thoughts I really want to share and get some opinions on :). This is kind of a continuation of that "games involving pen and paper" topic I brought up a few days back. I started looking up dungeon crawling games on VNDB, and I checked out some reviews for Lighting Warrior Raidy 1 along with its sequel. The reviews all say that in the second game, the map system has improved since it draws itself as you explore the dungeons. In the first game, I think you need to find a map in the dungeon first. At any rate, I thought, why not turn off the automap and draw it yourself with pen and paper? I don't mean to say this in some snarky way, but rather, I think it might feel pretty rewarding. Painstakingly stroke out every wall, then when you backtrack while tracing a finger through your map, you think, "Yeah, I did that ." When I go traveling, I love getting lost, then gradually learn the streets off by heart. Later, I revisit that same city and can roam around without any maps as if I am a local. This is one of the greatest feelings for me. I have a deep love for places so I understand if this might be a little weird. Has anyone played that first Raidy game? Did you find it annoying to get lost, or is there some potential in this? I would love to hear any general thoughts about this stuff. Thanks :)!
  16. Hello everyone ! Hope you are having an awesome Halloween. Ever since let's plays became a thing, I have been watching YouTubers play RPGs rather than going through the games myself. Most players skip the parts where they grind or revisit the same dungeon, which is more time efficient from my point of view. I wanted to see if anyone out there actually enjoys the grinding process? If so, I would love to understand the reasons. Seeing those stats go up over time can feel rewarding, I imagine. I also read in some game design book that certain players take grinding as a challenge. They enjoy figuring out how to level up in the most time efficient manner possible. I remember when I was little, I blew so many hours on some Saint Seiya RPG for the Gameboy, walking up and down the map endlessly because I wanted to see what will happen when I reach level 99. These days, you can probably just tweak some ROM file and see the result instantly, but I was just a curious kid. As the years went by, I became more obsessed with time management. If a game requires me to do laps inside a dungeon to beat the next boss, I lose interest. Yet, now that I have become so picky and work focused, once in a while, I actually have these urges to go, "Man, I just want to grind my whole weekend away on some game." Looks like I will always be a gamer. Maybe I am just fatigued and cranky. As a last question, I am pretty interested in picking up Valkyrie Chronicles 1 for the PC. I know in that game, you can do side missions to level up your classes, so I wanted to ask if this is necessary to beat the game? Is it feasible to complete the game without any grinding? I assume it might be much harder, but at least I wanted to know if it was possible. Thanks everyone :)!
  17. Aw man, I guess this whole kickstarter thing is a pretty tough topic at the moment . I have never managed any project that involves this amount of money, so I feel uncomfortable calling things either way. A few months back, I made a post sharing my photos from my 2011 Narcissu trip with a Japanese friend. Narcissu is a really important game to me, and if there is an opportunity to get something physical in my collection, I am just excited by the idea of that .
  18. Everyone here is really awesome, but I have to be the one to post this. Narcissu was my first visual novel, and it is one of my favorite stories from any medium. Anyway, I will let you folks take a look: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sekaiproject/narcissu-10th-anniversary-anthology-project (^-^)
  19. Thank you babiker! I am really glad you enjoyed the game, and the same goes for everybody else. There are no plans for a sequel but I am thankful people have asked :).
  20. Sorry for the late response and thank you for the good wishes Zodai :D!
  21. Thanks for the responses! Zebhra, wow, whatever that game is you are playing, it looks pretty awesome :3.
  22. Hello folks :). Last year, I finally played through this old FPS named Hexen, and I loved the experience thoroughly. The game has a lot of puzzles that are related to one another, so I ended up jotting down notes as I played. It felt great to write down an observation, then cross it out later after I manage to solve a particular puzzle. A few years ago, I also played through this game called Etrian Odyssey IV. The game has a digital map that you can draw out as you explore the dungeons, which was pretty fun. Just the simple idea of discovery. I figured it the digital map did not exist, and you have to painstakingly jot out the dungeons on paper, there might be something rewarding to that as well. Have you ever played a game that forced you to use pen and paper, and you got a rewarding experience out of it? I also wanted to see if there are any other games like Etrian Odyssey, where you have to draw out your own maps. I figured it might work for those dungeon crawling VNs, but maybe it is too hardcore for a broad audience. Thanks :)!
  23. Buy for me buy for me buy for me buy for me (>w<)! I love this show so much that they should seriously hire me to be their marketing guy .
