  1. Hyun-ae is the best VN character, because she isn't a one-dimensional trope turned into a person.
  2. Noble Works? More like NO-ble work, am I right?
  3. I don't know what these dots above my name mean, but I have 8, which is objectively the best number of dots to have, and all of you should be jealous.

      I think it's your "level" :o

  4. Well, I'll spare you from too much detail, since the full story would be a book (and, like Noble☆Works, it might be a book with a higher word count than Ulysses). But allow me to validate your point about the scenarists: I had some early inklings that the producers lazily divided routes among different writers, but this fact became all too clear once I embarked upon Shizuru's route. I quickly noticed an obscene overuse of em dashes, and had to force myself to diverge from the Japanese text's style and use alternative forms of syntax—but this soon became the least of our team's problems, as every aspect of the Shizuru route writer's prose was simply aberrant. I'm sure you've noticed that the route's story itself is strange compared to the others, but more importantly from my perspective, the text's grammatical structure, word choice, flow, etc. were all a mess. This might be all well and good for somebody willing to take great liberties in translation; unfortunately, having been influenced by the chorus of translation puritans that characterized that era, I was not willing to take those much-needed liberties. As such, the translation surely ended up unnecessarily stilted and lacked the flow that a dialogue-heavy work so badly wants, and for that I apologize. Now, my comment above was actually half-sarcastic. The thing is, I can barely finish a single medium-length visual novel before undergoing an acute sense of repetition. You might imagine, then, that I—somebody who's almost certainly "played" (as in, had open while paying some attention to) Noble☆Works longer than any other human—would become a bit sick of the game. Indeed, I myself cannot say to what degree my opinion of the game should be untethered from the trauma it wreaks upon my mind. But regardless, I'm pretty sure it kind of sucks.
  5. Right. I translated that game and I hate it.

  7. Assuming nobody else knows of a solution, I recommend contacting MangaGamer's support via email (support@mangagamer.com).
  8. Hello everyone!

    Yo yo yo!

    Ni hao, bro!
  10. Which Switch Game Should I Play?

    I experienced the controls issue as well, but sure enough, it eventually resolved. Also, I don't know if this is a common issue, but I failed to realize for a very long time that physically moving the controller/Switch adjusts your aim when using a bow, and upon realizing this, my marksmanship finally stopped sucking. Also, please don't go around talking to everyone and doing every darn side quest. Open worlds are meant for freedom and adventure, not completionism.
  11. Hi!

    Thank you for the Oxford comma.

    For some reason I can't directly harass you on your profile, so I'm dropping pings to inform you that IT'S NO LONGER CHRISTMAS, AND YET YOUR AVATARS SPEAK TO THE CONTRARY.

    REMEDIATE THIS AT ONCE.

      If I don't... will you have to come find me? :P If so, I might have to hold of on mediating this.

  20. More Santa Hats for your Avatars

    Here's your ugly non-hat avatars back: @1P1A @alpacaman @Asonn @Dergonu @Dreamysyu @Iria @JulioInAction @Kirashi @Leonor Unidentified Person: @waterflame @Zakamutt I'll be reverting my beautiful avatar on January 6th.
  21. Alright, boners, you know the drill. It's December, so select one of the Santa hats below and I'll add it to your avatar to the best of my ability. Or you can stop being lazy and do it yourself. If you don't select a number, you're subjecting your avatar to my artistic whims. Rules: Make sure your current avatar hasn't already been Santified last year or a year before that. You can make a special request or ask for a Santa hat you found somewhere on the Interwebs, but it might be difficult to implement on your avatar. (Translation: I might be too lazy to accommodate your request.) Some avatars won't look very good with a Santa hat, either because the Santa hat is cut off from view or for other reasons. I probably won't be able to do animated avatars. If you get a Santa hat from me, I'll save your original avatar somewhere and @ you after Christmas to remind you that it's time to de-Santify your avatar. For every day beyond liturgical Christmas in which your Santa hat is still on your avatar, I will be mildly enraged.

    As a matter of fact, we can see exactly what this looks like, because I constructed forehead-elucidating images long ago for some reason: Maybe I'll get around to examining the Sanoba Witch characters someday.
