    Greetings fellow creatives,

    If anyone is interested, I was recently asked to do an interview for a website called Exilian. Hopefully my answers were entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out:

    https://exilian.co.uk/articles.php

    That said, this week’s cool new textures are on the following pages:

    TXR – BRICK - Seamless
    Some really interesting brick textures.
    https://soundimage.org/txr-brick-seamless/

    TXR – ROCK/STONE – Seamless
    Some new stone textures that could be used for old roads, paths, castles, etc. Some have grass between the stones, too.
    https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-seamless/

    More music is on its way as well as some cool new city ambient sounds.

    Keep being creative!

    Yeah, but like masturbation, it can get out of hand. I really ought to get back to my studies, buuuut I still have energy left. And golden apples.
    ....fuck.
    Never watched I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Evangelion. Mako's square in the I-don't-give-a-fuck camp. Card games on motorcycles was fucking dumb. The show was leagues better than the movies purely on the virtue of not having the worst CGI I've seen since Digimon. I thought that Your Name was consistently good and handled the tone shift well, while the emotional payoff at the end of A Silent Voice felt badly executed to me. I love Ueno, from her design to her personality, and Kawai's a total hypocrite. I don't have an opinion on the loli stuff, though I would love to see a study about whether attraction to different archetypes of lolis (i.e. age groups) correspond to attraction different archetypes of child ages, to see if it's the same or maybe a sort of "all pedos like lolis, but not all who like lolis are pedos". Absolutely Mirai Nikki and Elfen Lied are shallow garbage, especially the latter, with all style and no substance. The entirety of SAO S1 is hot garbage outside of the animation and soundtrack, and people are way too fucking lenient on the pre-Alfheim arc, which is also utter shit. IIRC, Clannad keeps developing Nagisa, her relationship with Tomoya, or Tomoya's feelings towards Nagisa during every single arc, so while it's a sort of mish-mash, it knows where its going.  I can't remember anything from Angel Beats! except the monster-whatever band's good songs and the last scene of the singer, the blonde guy falling backwards out a window, and the part of the ending that completely ruined the scene for me, which was the fact that for whatever fucking reason the girl ended up in the afterlife way before the MC despite dying a good while later. Both Near and Mello can go eat a bag of dicks, and Light did not deserve to lose because someone under him fucked up. I did find Cowboy Bebop dull, dreary and uninteresting, but I can't remember Spike at all, so I dunno about him, though I did like Edward. I just made up the shit about Code Geass up, because though I do think it's a little ridiculous that everything just wraps up all fine and dandy after the ending, I can't remember the show well enough to know how it dealt with idealism generally.
    All anime are cartoons, but not all cartoons are anime.

    Kosakyun reacted to Fred the Barber in Western Visual Novel Publishers Often Release Games at a Loss Due to Piracy (ft. words from CEO of Sol Press, Xeviax)   
    You folks are talking about a mass move by Japanese VN developers toward mobage like it's a hypothetical, but from what I understand, it's pretty much a fait accompli. A large number of VN developers have already tried (and/or are currently trying) their hand at mobage. You just haven't heard much about it here since they've all have failed miserably thus far, aside from Type-Moon. So it's a bit late to be worried about that coming to suck away the attention paid to VNs—we're already in that boat.
    To bring this somewhat back on topic... VN loc companies are similarly looking all around for ways to stay/become profitable. There are only two real strategies I've seen almost all of them employing, at this point: China, and console releases. For China: if you have a license for a worldwide release, why not sell to a market that actually has consistently shown they're willing to pay for VNs, enough to fund a localization effort? It's certainly profitable. For console: Switch ports seem to be profitable, maybe? Though I don't have as clear a picture on that, and there aren't a lot of data points yet. But you can look at lackluster games like Root Letter getting huge sales numbers on consoles and realize, oh yeah, there's probably something there if you play your cards right.
    Now, neither of those is going to do the vast majority of people on this board much good, since we're mostly 1) not Chinese readers and 2) looking for 18+ content. As long as English 18+ release sales remain low (for whatever reasons, including but not limited to high rates of piracy), the only hope most of us have is that the VN loc companies both expand in some way that lets them make money (China, console, and/or some other means) and continue to subsidize English versions with 18+ content from those profits out of pure passion for it. That is effectively what they're doing today. Denpasoft, JAST USA, and Nekonyan are all on the China boat (Nekonyan through the Hikari Field partnership), leaving only MangaGamer in the lurch. Denpasoft and MangaGamer, at least, are both doing the non-PC thing, though MangaGamer is taking a galaxy-brain approach where they vomited up a buggy android app and then promptly forgot about it. I'd say if MangaGamer doesn't get in on the Chinese market in some way within the next year or so, I'll eat my hat, except they're so slow-moving that maybe they'll just keep trickling away dollars forever...
    Anyway, subsidizing 18+ English releases like this is honestly both risky (all kinds of legal exposure they could easily avoid by just, not doing it) and bad business (because it's throwing away money with no hope of return), but all these companies are doing it anyway. And yet somehow a lot of the vocal members of the VN community treat all of them as some evil enemy, most of the time. Sigh.

    Either way, I think thinking about the perpetrator's motives is ultimately irrelevant. Whatever it was, it doesn't justify what they did to the studio, nor to the families that are grieving for the loss of their loved ones. Useless to talk about it, and pretty insulting to those that have died.
    Prayers out for those suffering from loss.
    If you ever want to help them monetarily too, you can opt to buy from their online shop instead so that they directly receive the money. It would be helpful if you buy products that do not need packaging as well to not burden their employees with the work. This guy lays out the process for doing it.

    Kosakyun reacted to Jun Inoue in School graduates, doesn't reading vns with school settings make you feel kinda lonely?   
    Some people are saying stuff like "no because high school sucked / wasn't particularly meaningful", but isn't that actually one of the main reasons it's such a popular setting on manga/anime/VNs? People who couldn't experience it fully get to live the student life through the characters in stories where those years are meaningful for them. And for those who are nostalgic for high school, it helps them relive it. I mean, this is one of the main reasons the high school setting is like, a cornerstone of anime.
    Personally, I'm generally nostalgic, but mostly for life at that age in general, not just school. Like, being excited by tons of random stuff, hanging out with friends for days on their/my house, playing games 24/7, etc.

    Ahahahahahaha, you're not wrong about that.
    I recently graduated college, so I've began thinking that without classes and stuff, it feels really weird reading the stories of people who are supposedly "in the height of their youth" and stuff being in high school and stuff. Consuming stories like these makes me think back to my time in high school and makes me ask myself, "Why are their experiences so colorful and stuff when I just toiled over my 12 hour schedule and bulky assignments?" I sorta realized the answer to that at some point, but I find myself still wondering about that every now and then.
    In a way, it makes me feel lonely and sorta sad that I didn't make as much of my time back then like what these people are doing in these stories. But the feelings don't stop there. If anything, loneliness that comes up from memories of high school almost always comes up with vague nostalgia for me, regardless of being able to directly relate with the events in the story or not. I guess it's because more than 'making use of my experiences to the highest extent', I've began to realize that at some point in time I've worked as hard as they have for a certain goal, bantered with my friends so much that it made my stomach hurt, and grieved over something that I deem trivial these days. And that makes me feel good even if just a little, knowing that at some point, I was also living my own kind of story to the utmost extent that I can manage to. The loneliness ceases to come from not being able to live life to the fullest, instead coming from a sort of yearning for those times that have passed.
    But hey, I also use it as leverage to launch myself forward! If I haven't managed to do my best for the days that have already passed, then I'll do it for the coming days in the future! If I did live my days to the fullest ever since those times, then I'll continue doing so, even if the days currently feel stagnant! If it happened in the past, then I'm sure I can make it happen again. HS settings do make you yearn for those colorful experiences, but they also remind you that you can have those experiences, even as early as high school! Better late than never, you know!
    I hope you find these stories to be ones that remind you of good memories as you gain more years on you.

    In my case, I have a chronic disease (it's not life-threatening if taken the proper care, dun worry) so I couldn't go to school like, 50% of the time, and when I could go, I'd left sooner than everyone else, and because of so, I didn't have any friends at all, be it in or outside of school, so back at the time I'd wish that I could have friends and fun in school like the MC of the VNs I play.
    But yeah, I did stop playing some VNs or watching school animes because I didn't want to feel sad, nowadays I don't really care that much, because for the reason that I didn't get to go to school that much, I can now see things differently of "normal people".
    Although nowadays I still suffer a bit from the disease, my health is much better, I changed the things I eat and joined a Gym, I'm aiming to become a Chef btw.

    They have a really good story, with drama, sci fi and mystery. Without +18 content and only focus in the story+drama.
     
    In other way, this is one of the lasted VN i played, Rance VI Collapse of Zeth. I know, i know... Rance is bestial +18 title with h-scenes in every stage and full of rape. But if speak about the story... well, rance VI is one of the best story i eved played and i really enjoyed the time i played this title. https://vndb.org/v2047
