  1. Reminder that everyone lost that bet.
  2. I always wanted to, but I never get around to it.
  3. Depends on the story. If there is some sort of real, overarching main plot, I want a true ending. If it's just sol, I don't need it that much.
  4. Only read the two first routes. Two girls seems weird in this day and age, but they get a fair amount of screen and development time because of that. The dislikable shithead side characters (who get their own route) get better as it goes along and I really dig this "old-style, but modern tech"-aesthetic of the animated sprites and CGs (love myself some mouth-flapping). Sakura's route was A LOT better than Nanako's though. Unless the "one-year-later" route fixes some serious issues, Nanakers is pretty bad. And I kind of don't want to read the other two routes, because Kurumi is too precious for Naoki and the aforementioned Akari is still a cunt.
  5. Don't you dare forget the best one Well, if that makes you feel better you can think that. All I think about in that case would be that... 1. I've read everything except Tsumugi After and I am also missing these two CGs. If anything, it's a niche common route event, in Tsumugi After or randomly blank space. 2. Magic I guess.
  6. I hereby forbid everyone from picking Kurumi during Naoki's route. He doesn't deserve her, she is too precious. Pick the blue haired cunt instead.
  7. To be clear about this: Piracy is not an advantage or great in any way. And I can see the thought process of "well great, 200.000 people just STOLE our product". I get it, it sucks. However, you can't make the mistake of seeing these, lets say, 200.000 downloads as "lost sales". Because they are not lost sales. They aren't lost because nothing was ever sold. They are nothing. If you sold, lets say 500.000 copies of your product and 200.000 also pirated your shit, getting rid of piracy would still mean you only sold 500.000. The only way to actually turn the pirate numbers into customer numbers, is to make pirating more of a hassle than purchasing. And no, that is not accomplished by 23,7 different accounts and 4 spy programs connected to the software, like game developers seem to think. Put it on steam for 10, 20, what have you, bucks. Slap a discount on during release week. Don't break their balls, tickle them. (which also why the "make VNs more expensive" idea is up there with the dumbest plans I've ever read).
  8. My argument is that the number is 100%. The people who pirated because there was no other way in the past are already paying now that they can. Someone who never intended to pay will not do so simply because it's not possible. They will still not pay. Net gain 0.
  9. We live? EDIT: https://store.steampowered.com/app/658140/Sakura_Sakura/ we do live.
  10. It doubles as somewhat of a fake out Sanoba Witch has two really strong routes. Nene's story is interesting and experiments a little, which I really appreciate. Touko's is more standard and by the book as far as these types of scripts go, but it's executed near flawlessly. I could justify either pick for best. Taste.
  11. Don't fall for the piracy fallacy. The net gain of killing piracy is basically nonexistent, because most pirates wouldn't go "I can't pirate the thing? Guess I will pay" if you got rid of piracy, they will most likely say "Can't pirate the thing? Guess I'll do something else." and fuck off.
  12. At the same time as in "no girl can ever spend enough skillpoints to max out all three stats". More factual trufs:
  13. No, I just photoshop No, it's the kids who are wrong. Your maiden is swinging towards sexy, while dipping into beauty.
  14. It's common knowledge that nothing can be cheap, fast and good at the same time. If you want something good and you want it fast, it's not gonna be cheap. And if you desire something fast and cheap, it's not going to be good. In the same vein, I created the waifu-triangle to proof that no girl can be cute, sexy and beautiful at the same time. Here is the template, presented by my three pretty, but imperfect assistants. I challenge you to submit your girls to my arbitrary and undoubtedly objective rating. I will do so until I get bored.
  15. That's actually fair. Gets me thinking, aren't all the routes pointless, because That's some Hapymaher/Chrono Clock existential crisis drama-fuel. Don't think about it.
  16. Striking while the iron is frozen solid. And it's not even on-topic
  17. Sanoba Witch is the story of a guy with an unnatural ability and a for once plot integral personality. Doomed to live with his depression, he squanders his youth until one day, he comes across atruly outrageous scene, leading him into the world of magic! Have fun figuring out how the magic works, because the rules change in every route, enjoy random technical difficulties and observe the most shocking plot twist off all: Mizuhashi Kaori almost stayed in character the entire time. Almost. ______ Okay, I'm done. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I would say Meguru has the worst route, Touko the best and Nene the most interesting and memorable. Tsumugi might be the route I would recommend reading first to anyone going in blind, because it probably establishes the most "lore". Wakana was a better Deardrops side-route than the actual Deardrops side routes. Out of the three translated Yuzusoft titles we have, it's fair to call this the best not-full-heroine-route.
  18. I remember one part in which the protagonist expressed his like of Yuu's ***** in the middle of Arle's H-scene. That was kind of weird Also, I can connect to you somewhat, I kind of had to force myself through Riria's part because I made the fatal mistake of reading her mom's wholesome side-story first. Riria's mom has got it going on.
  19. As an amateur hobby editor, redrawer and shitposter, I feel like even a bad result from the program would be a better starting point for a redraw than the mosaic.
  20. Wew. There is just about no conceivable way I'm picking anyone other than Monster Hunter girl first. You would have to introduce a heroine who's super into Ace Attorney within the next 15 lines to change my mind.
  21. Oh wow, that's super great. You can even do black/white if you convert it to RGB first. The future has come and so have I. EDIT: @ShinRaikdou, you may wanna put that link into a spoilers just in case. That's how we do NSFW around here.
