4000th Post Celebration(?)

Recommended Posts

What the hell are you doing up still bats? You have class in like, 7 hours. You haven't taken a math class in 3 years and you just switched from a history major to geology so you need to catch up on math!

You know what though, fuck my future, I have shit posting to do. And what better excuse to shit post than to celebrate 4000 posts on this wretched, evil, disgusting forum. When I started out here, I was a mere boy, looking for a way to run Never7 with sound because I like noises with my shitty VNs. Guess what? I still never bothered solving that issue, and to this day have not read Never7. I likely never will. Rainbow UI turns me off. Gray and black turn me on. You know what I mean? 

I did discover, however, that people take their shitty porn games super serious. They tell localization company CEOs to kill themselves, they all have business degrees and experience in dealing with JP companies, and above all, will make porn popular in the west. Well, their porn. Research tells me porn is already pretty popular. So is sex with most people not voting Republican this election. This is all besides the point though.

But what is the point?

The point is that I've wasted too much time on this place, been too frustrated with people here, been too angry at some of the idiocy here. The VN community today is a joke. There is no point in me trying to make sense of it anymore. It is a completely different beast from the typical, misguided anger filled gaming community. The VN community is basically a monster, finding any piece of negativity to feed on, growing, bubbling up into pretentious, wordy arguments, or rage filled tweets/posts. Unfortunately, I've been a part of that monster more than once.  

I've come to realize, I hate the VN community, and by extension, I've come to dislike Fuwanovel's forums. Don't get me wrong, I love reviewing things still, and love working with the reviews team, and sometimes the blog team when called upon. But the forums? /r/visualnovels? Lewdgamer? Nichegamer? Sekai Project? I hate them all. I only like Mangagamer because they released Fata Morgana, and if you haven't read it, go read it because its the best VN this market will see most likely. Unless some EVN team blows my socks off. 

The VN community is a contradiction. Large swaths of it want VNs to be taken seriously, to grow and become a popular story telling medium in the west. And its well on its way, adapting to the market. That same swath sees this adapting to the market as a bad thing though and wants zero alterations to the source. Its completely understandable too. I would not be happy if Persona 5 comes West with large chunks of the game simply removed, or huge alterations done like in Revelations: Persona. I highly doubt though, that VNs will become popular unless the stigma of porn games is removed. Then some parts of the community could care less wtf happens to the market, as long as they get their uncut porn. 

What does this create? A fucking angry community, constantly fighting, constantly harassing localization employees, and even having employees get in on all of the stupidity (dovac, fucking delete your twitter for gods sake).  

I hate it all. I've realized, it matters not one bit to me in the real world because my life does not revolve around this shit. Each day, I find myself caring less and less about how to make VNs popular, and find myself despising the community more and more. So, its time to basically cut ties with the community. If I didn't like doing reviews so much, I'd had left a while ago. 

So, this is a shit post, its a rant post, its a celebration post. Its sort of a farewell post. No, unfortunately I am not quitting Fuwanovel completely. Like I said, I love doing reviews, writing them, and reading what my team writes. So you Keyfuckers are just going to have to deal with the fact that Bats is still around to spread the salt (though maybe not reviewing Key VNs since he can't do it properly anymore). But forum activity? If it isn't review related, I'm done. If it was practical, I'd get my reviews board moved somewhere off these forums and work with the team there. But its not. I would say I'd miss reading and talking to most of you.... but it'd be a lie.

I'm sure one or two of you will say something super smart, and defensive over the community today, in an attempt to disprove my words. Do it, I won't argue with you. Have at this post. After all, I am just a little bitch to be ignored :wahaha:

And before I forget, here is a picture of my refrigerator. I labeled some parts as best as I could. So lets celebrate!

tl;dr bats is angry, and done with this shit. Except reviews, he still likes doing all of that.

"Its sort of a farewell post. No, unfortunately I am not quitting Fuwanovel completely. " For a second you almost gave me some hopes there, first Ren and then you... it was too good to be true... J/K:sacchan:
now seriously...those are some scary thoughts about persona 5 being butchered D:

Hope you come back someday because even if there is some hate, fighting, salt, etc there are some good things in this community too, maybe you are focusing on the bad things too much. Either way good luck with your life and congrats on your 4k post!

btw it's nice too see a celebration post that doesn't make any mentions for once!

You should find a passion and devote your energies into it. Typically people who get angry about the internet have the luxury of getting angry about the internet – it’s a silly and angry place (it didn’t used to be, back in the 90s, when the hassle of getting on the internet weeded out most undesirables … heh) but that doesn’t mean it has to poison your attitude and outlook. It’s why I used to take a long break from the online world every 6 months or so – the internet tends to negatively affect your personality if you’re not careful.

You waste too much energy getting angry at stupid stuff. You’re a smart man, you know it’s not worth it.

Good luck with your Geology degree. That’s actually a fascinating field so you have an exciting future ahead of you :) 

Oh, and be sure to give Angel Beats a 1 or something. Screw the Key fans, this is hipsternovel.net after all, and Key is just not hip.

Although I must say, I find it rather odd that you of all people would quit -even partially- considering what Fuwa has done for you. Recall that this place use to have torrents, and you were the loudest voice demanding their removal. Recall that you've said things other people would be banned for that were overlooked. Not saying you never got banned, but some would say the mods have been relatively lenient. I've seen many people come and go and haven't raised an eyebrow, but you honestly seem to me the least justified to do so. All I can think of is us Key fans calling BS on your reviews, but I don't think that's enough to make you dis mad, especially considering how old your LB review is. I assume there's something behind the scenes going on that's bothering you, possibly even unrelated to fuwa in praticular, maybe a twitter VN squabble? 

But meh, either way it doesn't really matter. Taking a break from a partner is a key (kek) part of good relationships, so by all means take a break. But I'll miss having one of the few rich salt mines Fuwa possessed :P

I haven't talked to you at all, but from what I've seen your posts were usually funny and insightful, so I'm sorry hear that you won't be posting much at all anymore. At any rate, I look forward to your upcoming reviews:salt: , and good luck on your major.

That's a refrigerator? damn, you can't even fit a corpse there.

 

Congratulations man and even though I don't agree with all of your points I won't argue against them either for this post is about celebrating. :sacchan: 

 

Good luck with your reviews and whatever else you may choose to do from now on :sachi:
