MangaGamer Winter Sale

Recommended Posts

For the next 12 days, MangaGamer store will feature both a set of fixed discounts and some sweet daily deals, today's one being -70% on Edelweiss titles. While, as usual, most of the things on sale are crappy nukige, there are a few worthwhile titles even now and really cool stuff will definitely show up among those short-term discounts.

And, through some unexplainable lapse of judgment, I actually did end up grabbing euphoria for -50%. I guess this year's Christmas will be all red and brown...? :nico:

Fair point. Those it's a bit odd they put the second half of Ef on sale and not the first.

I'm kind of thinking about picking up euphoria. I'm kind of interested in what it really is about, and I was waiting before it's on sale. But, on the other hand, I still have a ton of VNs to play... And it will probably be on sale a few other time before I get to it... And I'm not even sure I'll be able to read it, considering its reputation...

I don't know, maybe I'll pass for now. :makina:

Yeah, I'd normally be a bit apprehensive about buying it, but I guess I'm a bit burned out on the usual stuff right now... Winter break will as good moment as any to check it out and I think my curiosity will win with the repulsion. I mean, it's not something I expect to "enjoy" per se, but it should be interesting, if the good things I've heard about it are just as true as the bad ones. :3

Plus, a short bonus story. Because of certain events which I won't disclose, I'm, for a while now, cut from my credit card and using my brother's for online purchases (it's, like, basically his fault so he can't complain about it :p). So, when I saw the discount, I've texted him:

M: Can I buy a game outside of Steam, for 20 bucks?

B: What kind of game?

M: Well... It's a long story...

B: ...is it legal?

M: It's from a safe and reputable source!

B: Sure...

Not sure what he imagined that I'm buying, but I'll probably leave it at that. I don't think he'd be able to come up with anything even close to euphoria in his mind, so I better not give him the title and unwillingly encourage to do research on it. :wahaha:

The life of a VN reader is a difficult one.:wahaha:

There is only 1 person IRL that knows that I read this stuff.

If you don't like dark nukige you probably won't enjoy the first part of each route, but once you get into the 2nd half the routes it tend to focus much more on the story rather than sex, just wanted to warn you in case you get a bad first impression and decide to drop it. Personally I love the story in euphoria while the ero was okay in general with a few things mixed in that I didn't really like. Personally I would recommend starting with the teacher route, her route is pretty good while not going too far into the main story, kind of more making you question what is going on as buildup for other routes. Rika's route also works in building the mystery the same way, but she is shit and the main character act like shit during her route, so starting with this route might make you think the whole VN is shit.

Pardon the random question, but nukige? What is that?

I notice a lot of people who've read Euphoria hate Rika. Why is that, exactly?

Thanks for the advice. I'll be pretty much expecting the worst when approaching, so I don't think it could put me off easily overdoing the porn bits, but I'll take the route selection thing to heart. I probably won't do more research on it, so I don't spoil myself too much. :>

She is stupid, selfish and generally just annoying. Think she is made to be hated to justify her route where the MC act more villanous towards her which I assume pleases those that got euphoria for the more darker sexual themes. The problem being that if you take her route first, her whining and selfishness seems justified due to the situation and you just end up feeling bad for her and hate how the main character acts. Also in my opinion she just has a really weak route compared to the others.

What I would recommend is Natsuki, Rika, Rinne, Nemu and Kanae. This way you get the best buildup for the story while you also avoid going through Rika's route first.

Because she's a weakling, and a cowardly weakling at that. Basically gonna bitch her way out of difficult situations.

But Clockup knows what ticks with us, so she gets a lot of deserved bashing in-game.

And now JAST joins too! :vanilla:

Nice :) I was planning to get My Girlfriend is President for some time, but base price was too high for me.

If someone didn't read it yet, that's also good opportunity to get YMK.
