Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

Recommended Posts

Started reading some new vn's that have release dates this year, Saw Mangagamers site down yesterday and nows its up and running. Really glad i downloaded the new one called "Princess Evangile" and love the demo of it i downloaded today. Really glad its one of those at 30-50 hrs long and like long stories that bring together both opposite sex's. below ill put up info in this visual novel and the release.

Description: Burdened by the incredible debt his father left behind, Okonogi Masaya is now destitute and alone. However, through a strange collection of events, he finds himself living at the prestigious Vincennes Academy, an all-girls charm school! His purpose is to mingle amongst the Filles De La Vincennes ("Maidens of Vincennes") as the single male "sample" to promote gender integration. How will these young, innocent, and otherwise pure maidens react to his presence?!

And just like that, his life at an all-girls school began...

Ps: I did play through the first week of game since its only a demo, very impressed with the aspects of the game  with a calendar / school day times and building relationships with girls that may hate the character since its all girls school. But really enjoy the story and having his burdens make him wana push on and make others happy. It may not be the best visual novel I have played but this one caught my eye since I have played the other Moonstone games. Princess Evangile release is set for March 27th 2015 so look foward for next month!

 Only negative thing I have seen so far in this game is the limited number of character poses and expressions compared to other visual novels. However, it looks like it would be an interesting one so I am probly buying it.

I admit I'm kind of interested but this game's summary has me a little wary of it since it sets off a few red flags for me. It basically sounds like the typical set up where most of the heroines are (scott free) jerks to the MC no matter how nice he is until the plot finally decides for them to lighten up (and in some cases it only happens in their route), one character's profile seems to match one of my most hated tropes: heroine's annoying interfering friend, and only two of the winnable heroines sound like likable characters. I know there's a demo, but my computer's kind of lacking in memory at the moment.

Well, this is a moege after all.

I have been somewhat interested in this one myself but from what it looks like it doesn't look like anything special. I admittedly haven't tried the demo yet but in these type of vns sometimes the common route is actually the best written so does anyone know or has read this and can say if it's any good for the individual routes?

though it´s not worlds greatest moege, it´s definitely one of mgs better titles and an improvement of their current games catalog. was pretty enjoyable whilest playing and you won´t complain big afterwards, if you have no qualms with a mindless story and somehow generic characters. fluffy & fun, but nothing special that you might remember afterwards

I'm reading through the trial version because I wanted to write a quick review. You can tell the editor didn't have much time to edit this, the longer sentences (where the writing needs to be quite tight) are full of bad writing. And I'm like... 6 lines in 

 

I'll probably leave that out of the review, because people have a high tolerance for bad writing. Still not well edited. I can't get sucked in, the writing keeps jolting me out.

Well that just sold me to it as a game to fap at instead of read.  I will probably mindlessly ctrl through the dialogue just to get to the fun bits where I get to laugh at the unreasonable circumstances that led them to copulate.  Honestly, I prefer a little more story in my porn if it's going to be in VN format.  We have plenty of other mediums that forsake actual plot altogether and just go for the sex.

 

Probably wont pick this one up.

Get some Illusion or Softhouse stuffs, you won't be disappointed.

It gets better! It's only the beginning that's poorly edited, thank goodness. I can totally read it afterward, just the beginning bit was horrid. Just so you know I'm not being cynical to "look cool" here's a few notes I made on the beginning... 11 lines:

 

5th line – “The sun had set, but it was still so cold that I had a hard time believing that school was starting soon.”

 

The word “but” is misused, it’s there to indicate a contradictory statement however there is none. Also lots and lots of redundancies, the sentence is a struggle to get through. Also school could mean “school term” or “a new school week” or “a new school day.”

 

First get rid of the comma and replace with a semi-colon or a period. Then get rid of the “but”. Then get rid of all the redundancies and fiddle to stop making it sound kiddy.

 

"The sun had set. With the weather still so cold it was hard to believe the school term was about to start."

 

Yes there’s an extra sentence in there, but that’s better than sticking a term which doesn’t apply in there.

 

7th line"As was my lack of any place to go"

 

Ugh. It's a small thing, but it gives off the sense that something's wrong. Replace “Any” with “a”

 

“As was my lack of a place to go.”

 

Personally I prefer something like “As was having no place to go." or "Having nowhere to go didn't help either." That last suggestion changes the tone though.

 

11th line – "and the cold that I felt ran deep"

 

Get rid of  the “that” - "and the cold I felt ran deep."

 

And that's why I reacted with disgust. It gets better though, but someone needs to edit the opening. A couple of borderline sentences I won't comment on either. They're acceptable though, I just don't like them. Comma abuse seems common though, redundant words also seem common. "Taking care of myself enough not to get sick" appears a little later on, but is easily fixed...

 

EDIT: It's a little bit nitpicky but that has to do with the price. See, if I'm paying ... 45 dollars is it? I tend to judge the game a little harsher than if I was paying 20 dollars. But like I said, if I do the review it won't be going in there.

 

But yeah, as someone who usually studies how authors write, whenever I'm confronted with line after line of awkward sounding text, all I want to do is analyse why it doesn't sound right. I don't really feel like reading on. Happily it improves!

There are SO MANY redundancies in these sentences, but I kept telling myself it's okay. Then a bunch appeared in the same line:

OH COME ON! I hope this is getting another edit before actual release (please? Pretty please?)

 

Suggestions - "The fact I wasn't joking showed how perilous my situation was."  Or "That I wasn't joking showed the gravity of my situation." But my preference is probably something like "I wasn't joking, that's how perilous my situation was." something like that. The point is, see how clean and bloat free my suggestions are? See the colossal bloat in the sentence above? The bloat obstructs the meaning, the imagery, and the impact of the words... it also makes my eyebrow twitch.
