guys I solved it I solved it, I finally know why mmorpgs make female armor so skimpy     Sharty's face is just priceless

Picked up, or rather finally started Ace Attorney trilogy on my 3DS. Finished the first game, in the middle of Ep1 of the 2nd game, which is atm a shame because i expected Phoenix to start off veteran

I have no idea what any of that was actually saying because your posts are difficult to read sometimes. But please don't assault or sexually harass your coworkers, that's not cool.

Been reading Muv Luv Alternative...

 

(MLA episode 2 and muv luv Unlimited spoilers)

 

I'm just past the part where Yuuko tells Takeru to not do anything to prove he isn't lying, and it all happens, right before the Combat Skill Evaluation thing.

 

It hasn't been too incredible so far. Feels like rereading Unlimited, though obviously things'll get better and better towards the end.

It's November11th already, however... I wonder what'll happen.

I'm still doing Terra, I'm going slow but man does this route have a truckload of choices. If anyone played Rewrite could you answer the question that I will put in spoilers?

Does the bad end in Terra, that you achieve by killing/capturing Kagari instead of letting her go, tie to what happens on the first part of the game(the 5 heroine and common routes)? What I mean is, is that the way things happened to get the "main" game kotarou?

Just got to the opening in RuiTomo. I'm very impressed so far - not necessarily by the story, but because of the narration itself. This is exactly why I like complex and interesting main characters that are as much important - if not more important - than the heroines themselves. You spend most of your time reading with them, after all. Tomo's great so far, I really like how (s)he's not perfect. A liar, a hypocrite, yet deep down a nice person... I'm really curious where the story will go.

Probably somewhere cursed, ha ha.

 

Yeah they are bad. I was even expecting something good from Ririko's but I got nothing *sniff* And it wasn't even funny and Ken didn't even make it better. 

 

God bless the afterstories of Meikyuu with Yuuji and his badassery.

 

God stuff god stuff.

All that BDSM in Amane's after story isn't any better, to be honest. :D

Well Terra's credits are rolling, can't say I liked the route's ending all that much. Somehow it left a bad taste in my mouth. I'll just put stuff in spoiler to not spoil anyone.

Basically Kotarou became Sakyua V2.0... I mean really? Also why can't they(the 5 girls) recognize Kotarou at the end? The whole unattainable love between Kagari and Kotarou didn't feel that right to me because it also reinforced the whole Sakyua V2.0 thing. I just can't get my head around on how they wrapped up the game.

Wow, I just realized that I forgot to talk about G-senjou, at least more than just Haru's ending and its epilogue.  Obviously there's super mega ultra G-senjou no Maou spoilers ahead, so ye be warned.

 

Honestly, I believed that Kyousuke was Maou until it was mentioned that his brother was blown up without leaving a trace behind. That raised a major red flag for me. The chances of that actually happening are very, very low, even if he was standing directly on top of the bomb as it exploded. Odds are, some piece of him would've been left behind, be it fibers from his clothing or DNA left behind from some type of fluid or tissue. I wasn't really surprised when it was revealed that Kyouhei was Maou, but that was pretty much the only major twist I saw coming. The epilogue came out of nowhere for me, which is probably why it hurt so much. I haven't cried like that in a long time. I will say, though, that the weakest parts of the story, at least in my opinion, were in Haru's route. After Kyouhei's plan to get his dad released from jail is put to action, a lot of ridiculous action scenes and implausible events happen. I started to feel a little overwhelmed by them, and couldn't help but notice how ridiculous they were. That said, it helped to lower my guard for the epilogue. I expected a series of charming CGs and bits of text about how happy they were now that Kyouhei was dead and their lives could be truly normal (at least for them) again, but nope, my expectations were blown away.  Kyouhei's dead?  Nope, Chuck Testa.  He's back to fuck everything up.

The soundtrack was top-notch. Thanks to GetterEmperor I was able to download it immediately, and I'm listening to it as I write this wall of text. Some of the songs, I feel, are just okay, but as a majority, the soundtrack was the best I've heard so far in a VN.  Once I found out that a majority of the songs were based on real classical pieces, I was sold.  The music as a whole made the scenes what they were, and made me feel certain emotions when they played, like a real sense of dread when Gonzou's theme came on.

As for the routes and characters...I honestly loved all of the heroines. Their personalities were so different, yet that only helped to make them feel real.  Haru stole my heart, as I'm sure she did with everyone, but the others are honestly in a tie behind her.  As for the routes, here's my list of favorites, in order from greatest to least: Haru, Mizuha, Tsubaki, Kanon.  I thought Kanon's route was the weakest in terms of the endings, but I thought it was good until I got to the final choice, which really didn't make a lot of sense in terms of the effects it caused.  I thought Tsubaki's route was a little above average, but her bad end was what really stood out to me.  So dark and twisted...I felt disgusted to have even clicked on the choice that caused it, which makes me think that it's perfect because of that.  Her good end was a little cliche, in my opinion, but it gave me a nice warm feeling in my heart.  Mizuha's route was a step up, at least in terms of the overall quality of the ends.  Her bad end, while not as dark and twisted as Tsubaki's, felt delightfully nasty.  It gave us a better picture of the manipulative, disgusting, evil Kyousuke from Tsubaki's bad end.  Her good end was better than any of the previous ones, with a bittersweet tone to it because of Yuki's ultimate fate.  Haru's route...it's obvious why it's my favorite.  I don't think I even have to explain it.  Dem feels made me bawl.

I was pretty sad to see it go.  I have to say, it's my favorite VN so far, topping even Kajitsu.  Just thought I should put my thoughts about it out there, since I was a spaz and forgot to until now.

About G Senjou

 

I felt like Maou's return was kind of like a reverse deus ex machina and it bugged me, because there's literally no way to see it coming unless you're reading into the author's intent, which you shouldn't ever have to do when experiencing any piece of media.

I don't think the game is bad, in fact, it's easily in my top 10 VNs, I was just kind of put off by his return coming out of nowhere.

Anyways, I'm juggling too many games at once now. I'm playing Persona 3 FES, Infamous, and the Dishonored DLC, and I'm downloading Never 7 as I type this. I also just got a job, so I totally don't have time to do this, but eh, I'll figure it out. I'll probably just sleep less.

Well, I think that can be good in some cases, 

but I personally felt a little cheated, as all signs pointed to the opposite being true. It felt like I was being tricked just for the sake of being tricked.

It felt a little bit like the whole "and it was all a dream" ending that is so cliched. Like, the "it was all a dream" ending is annoying because it's way too convenient to feel plausible, but I felt like Maou showing up again was way too inconvenient to be plausible, if that makes any sense.

 

Anyways, I'm not trying to knock the game, I still think it's fantastic, that was just one little sticking point for me. And thank you for the well-wishes!
