Previous thread: >>14263941
This thread is for the discussion of untranslated Japanese visual novels.
What are you playing? What are you looking forward to? What have you finished? You know the drill.
Nice OP, I guess.
>Any politics in this or other Tatsuya games?
In Innocent Bullet at least the vast majority of focus is given to guns and military life/movements. There's only one politician-esque character so far, and 8-some military bros so I do not expect the later game to have much politics but if my expectations are wrong I will be sure to mention it.
Its fun to read stuff that doesn't bother with usual "harming evil people is bad" bullshittery. Majos are calamity for humanity, everyone living in city is some kind of criminal or scum, there's no "good" people there and its fun to watch them torturing and killing each other.
TBH, I don't actually like guro side of things so far, its presented as pure torture and pain, without any erosa. I prefer things like https://vndb.org/v11696 where heroine gets to enjoy it too.
Finished Rin's route. It certainly provided some answers, but felt kinda "normal". And left still too many mysteries.
I did like it. Now let's see if Makoto's is bad and if Zypressen onwards is amazing.
There were no fapable (for me) scenes in trial, so unless you can fap to girl being chopped into pieces or giant majo raping and crushing men against own breasts, its definitely for plot.
Hmm, script filesize suggest it's little bit longer than Olympia.
Olympia didn't really feel long to me, so even Pica Pica might be okay. But boring things always end up feeling way longer than they are.
That's the main problem, it's kinda long but can feel like an eternity.
It's still noe of the better 'mommy issues and family problems' routes I've read when it actually focuses on that because they behave like normal human people instead of melodramatic retards.
Hey, this is not fair.
Completed Maggot Baits trial.
They really went to the fullest extreme with violence there, and its quite graphical. I've completed plenty of guro VNs before, but still felt very uncomfortable during Iron Maiden scene.
Characters are very interesting, and looks like its going to have nice plot, so will give it a try when its released.
Some of h-scene samples they featured after trial were very nice too, so at least non-guro parts are fappable.
So yeah im not fluent at japanese, so i just wanna ask, as you guys who seem to be fluent.
Do you just skip over words you don't know?
I mean do you just kinda skim through and pick up the main points.
I mean some words i can tell what they mean but other times i just wanna skip through it as it takes too long
I mean i tend to miss some stuff, like the beggining of silverio vandetta when the arms flies across at the begginign i thought it was the protagonist's arm flying across until i read back.
On the off chance that you're not just some baiter using the obvious bait once again, I'll answer seriously.
I look up words I don't know. Nowadays in most VNs it doesn't happen ofter that I have to do so, so it's not too distracting.
Next time it would be a good idea to ask on /a/ in DJT, this isn't a Japanese learning thread after all. Also come to think of it, I don't see what will you get by asking this question.
Yeah, Eromanga was cute and lewd (and informative) enough for me. But then he hammers my feelings with euphoria, Fraternite and now this. Well, it's mostly Banya but still they are usually synonymous in my mind.
Anon posted on a dead thread so I'll repost it (>>14281480)
Yeah I completely disagree about most of these points.
1- The text itself is interesting most of the time so who care, the only parts that felt bloated was chapter 1 and Makoto's route, in the end Sakura no Uta is a Makura's game and the game itself is about life itself, not depicting the slice of life would go against what the game is going for
2- The art can be weird like most of the CGs in Rin's route and shit but it's not game breaking. Being outdated is a pretty stupid thing to say no and you clearly don't know how shit art in doujin game can be
3- Makoto's route is the low part of the game but you are really really exagerating, it's definitely isn't that bad. The route also introduce the conflict between the families and Makoto's route who is actually a very important character so it's needed
4- Honestly I don't even know what to say about this, if you really think it's forced you clearly completely missed the point of the game
5- the lesbian route may feel separated from the rest of the game but it's not disjointed, thematically it's also pretty clever to put it where it was considering what Sakura no Uta is about
And it was a fucking great route, who care if it exist just because Scaji wanted to write about it
6- Yeah no, fuck off. If that's really your complain about VI you obviously completely and utterly missed the point
VI is like the best way possible to end this game
Sakura no Uta was written on a long period of time and it shows but it does have an all encompassing theme.
I know that this game really isn't for everyone so your reaction doesn't surprise me but yeah, I really do think you completely missed the point
Is that how you respond after saying "n-no one's explained how the game is good!"? You just call the dude a religious zealot and not respond? Kind of pathetic.
It only release a couple days ago, people will not be talking about it in a month.
I will probably postpone playing it myself for a few months and then type something out, since my enjoyment of it would probably be reduced if I wanted to keep visiting this thread. I have enough backlog, anyways.
Burst out laughing really hardly here.
Sakura no Uta by the way.
Spoilered because it probably won't be as funny if you see this beforehand.
Holy shit SakuUta shocked me. I'm 15 hours in and was not prepared at ALL. I figured with the "SakuUta is kamige" and "SakuUta is kusoge" memes that it would obviously be somewhere in between but I did not expect to get so immediately drawn in.
HimaNatsu was comfy. It set an atmosphere and had attention to detail that made me attached to the characters and setting.
SubaHibi was engaging. Despite the numerous shenanigans it had a way of telling the story that made it a good, not great, read.
My first impression of SakuUta is that it's just fucking FUN. Makes no sense and will probably jump around too much to make sense plotwise, but I can't get rid of this wide grin on my face, nor do I want to.
Please tell me that that is the kind of ride I'm in for, because I don't want it to stop. The setting is not as good as HimaNatsu and the storytelling is not as good as SubaHibi, but regardless of that I am thoroughly enjoying myself because of how well it pulls off making utter nonsense seem like a good time.
Which chapter are you on?
I just finished chapter 1 and it bored me a lot, I do feel mundane conversations are strangely fun but the length killed it for me. I feel kind of left out. I'll keep going because it seems it gets better from now on, though.
Which is weird, I remember euphoria being pretty decent plotwise.
I wonder why so many people rate games high despite the bad routes especially when they take a significant part of the whole thing (not talking about SnU here here in particular)? Isn't it a bit selective and basically saying "it's good except when it's bad"?
Can you give an example of a majorly bad game rated highly? Some games have a long common route that's good. I'd expect 2/5 character routes to be bad based on experience. So, if I expected it to be bad, the game just meets my expectations and doesn't ruin the whole experience for me.
It probably depends on when the bad parts happen as what happens towards the end probably stands out more so it and can "ruin" something otherwise excellent throughout if it's bad where as if it's good it makes the rest of the game seem better in retrospect.
In the case of Makoto's route I didn't care that much because it took part between the normal eroge phase aka common route + Rin's route and when the real awesome weird shit actually start aka Rina onward
In the case of Dies Irae for example Kasumi's route is quite weak compared to the rest but it made me hyped for the rest more than anything
So yeah it depends on where that weak route is placed
I'm not >>14282579 but the first thing comes my mind is Primal x Hearts. Seriously common route was kinda good yeah, but all heroine routes were shit. There wasnt even enough ichaicha, just sex sex sex and end. I'm not really sure how the hell this got 80 at EGS.
I mean lets say the common route was 40% of the entire game, does some kinda good 40% (even that wasnt excellent or something) and shitty 60% makes 80/100? Even the SnU got 87 if I'm remembering correctly.
Did you not fuckin' read >>14282616? Game ratings aren't objective like that, people don't measure out (in made-up percentages no less) how much of a game was good and rate it just from that. Christ.
>Primal x Hearts
Games are rated in a scale depending on the type of game. PxH was a moege, not an scenarioge, and as a moege it was good. The setting with the two student councils (which introduced light politics) was pretty fun, the characters were cute, the art and ero were good, and the individual routes, which indeed had more ero than anything else, acknowledged that and were pretty short compared to the common route.
Similarly, nukige get pretty good ratings if they're good as nukige.
>and as a moege it was good.
The problem is that it wasn't, it drops the icha icha one hour into the routes and then goes sex sex stupid drama sex more stupid drama sex sex resolution.
It was a fun game for a while then it completely shits the bed. Even the art starts looking bad no matter how shiny it is.
The common route didnt outweigh the routes or anything. You are exaggerating too much. Even the "777" shit didnt matter a bit.
Its not all about eros. Even the dramas were forced and shitty as fuck. For example Kanna's route.
What the fuck was that "I will give you blowjobs, sleep in your bed, life as your wife but wont be your girlfriend because you might get bored of me at sometime" shit? If this is not a forced drama, I'm not sure what is it.
How about others?
Sera; the classic "She cant be together with someone like him" setting which I dont like a bit but this is just my personal taste so you guys might actually liked it, Haruhi; She didnt know what the "love" means but started masturbating in front of MC suddenly just because why not. Yuzuki; Even though this didnt happened at of other routes, Mc suddenly realized he didnt know what does "love" means and acted coldly against her because god only know reasons, until he saw a idiotic mail.
And after those events, they just have sex, sex, sex > end.
Also I'm not >>14282792 and I'm rating this game as a moege. Or more like I dont even play anything else except moeges so I cant rate with any other standards.
I didn't like the game much myself, I'm just noting it's subjective and saying something like "the game is only 40% good so it should only have a 40/100 rating"! is very narrow minded.
Furthermore it's not like everyone who rated Primal Hearts had brain damage and accidentally gave the game high scores. Quote:
Some people just liked it more than you. That's it.
Dude its not like I'm hunting those people who gave a high score or something, of course I know it depends on everyone's tastes. Just said why did I thought that as overrated and wanted to hear other people's opinion at here, since I cant join the SnU conversion at all.
Its not like I'm mad, and I'll play the second game as well.
I am mainly responding to
>I mean lets say the common route was 40% of the entire game, does some kinda good 40% (even that wasnt excellent or something) and shitty 60% makes 80/100?
Which made me fairly butthurt for obvious reasons
Oh that. Well of course it doesn't mean we have to give 30-40/100 or something, but I'm still thinking that if a moege's more than half is bad, it shouldn't be as high as 80-85. It may be different at other type of games because of twist or true route factors though.
I'm reading EGS reviews and the 80 point reviewers didn't think the routes were bad at all. So you say, "if a moege is more than half bad it shouldn't be as high as 80-85", but in reality people don't think it's half-bad. I'm reading this 3,000 character review and the dude is raving about every character route. For example compare this:
Haruhi; She didnt know what the "love" means but started masturbating in front of MC suddenly just because why not.
It's all perspective
Down the rabbit hole I is legit the worst thing Sca-ji has ever written. It's a Lucky Star fanfic with a bunch of philosophical references that don't make sense until later on. If I didn't make it through that garbage I would've never written anything by him again.
>Lucky Star fanfic
Sounds like my type of game.
I have a bit more respect for Innocent Bullet -
seeing him fuck up in training and subsequently absolutely break down in his first real combat situation, to the point where a teammate punches him in the face for endangering his team, was actually kind of moving. I had extremely low expectations for this game so something like that is surprising.
If you think that's what I said you're fucking retarded. There are barely any women to be found in eroge, they all act immature, even characters who are supposed to be older. If you liked women you wouldn't play fucking eroge.
The vast majority of eroge have characters that most sane people would consider to be children. Hate to break it to you, but if you play eroge, you're kind of a pedo by default, fam.
Guys I have a quick small question. I have never played any Gesen18 games and I'd like to play 三極姫4 or something, but do I have play other three first or can I just jump into this? Also what's the difference about all those? Do they have same mc's or entire different cast?
I think you can jump straight in. From what I can tell, the main cast of each game seems different (I played 2 and none of the cover girls look familiar) and I assume the storylines are different as there was a renewal edition of the first game was released a year ago. I also think the protagonist is different.
Anyway, you should probably check their site for more info.
I mean, the vast majority of VNs have ero included. It's standard even for story-based games to toss in some HCGs. With that in mind I don't think your question means much. With that said, Higurashi and Umineko were huge hits tons of people played and they had 0 ero, so that should answer your question. Plus Utawarerumono 2 came out a bit ago and also had a lot of players.
Still what about stuff like gyakuten saiban, danganronpa, timetravelleers, timehollow,
I realise some of these have been localised but I'm wondering if you guys try these.
Or I guess stuff like Steins gate passes this qualification as well
Common routes are rarely interesting, usually it's just carried by jokes and SOL, just like Grisaia. So really just throw darts at some VNs and hope you find one with comedy you like. Read stuff written by this guy https://vndb.org/s204 since you apparently like his stuff.
If you had bothered to actually check the archives you'd find comments on possibly all of those. If memory serves well, I did discuss about them when Gyakusai 5/Daigyakusai was around (not sure if Daigyakusai was just with my friend though) and DGR/DGR2 back on the PSP for example.
No they are pretty bad ass but the way they get treated by the heroines of the game is kinda sad.
I mean sure at first its cute, like sakura punching naruto a couple of feet I found kinda funny as a kid but after a while its just why do you do this to a character?
Also girl who punches at the speed of sound and mary sue girl fights and mary sue matches her, is kinda bullshit.
Its like stuff i would watch when younger thinking it was good.
Silky's Plus' two works so far are borderline nukige judging by the amount of ero and art, but they have pretty good storylines. It seems they're going for a blurry line between scenarioge and nukige.
Speaking of silky's, completed Shitai o Arau today.
It left very mixed impression on me.
Large part of game is protagonist's inner struggle with situation, with long inner monologues and what was supposed to be him slowly yielding to stress. And this part is pretty much complete failure, it didn't "tick" for me at all, it was very boring and lacking any impression. Somehow I made it to the first ending, but after it I just started mostly skipping these parts with only cursory glancing over them. It made game much more bearable that way.
However, when shit actually happens, its very amusing and I've enjoyed collecting all bad ends for all its crazy developments. Bad ends also feature hint corners with short skits, and they are quite good.
Story itself was so-so, it put significant load on my suspension of disbelief, and many points were not explained at all. Heroines were there mostly to progress the plot, romance felt like it was added just because eroge needs stuff like that.
Overall, while its failure as horror or thriller or denpa or whatever they tried to make it, its great black comedy, and considering how much better omake scenarios and hint corners were than original game, they should've focused on this comedy/crazy stuff instead. Things like poem about corpse's pussy were pretty cool.
Tried Damekoi since it was praised as one of best comedies around, but I cannot stomach this protagonist. Currently at chapter 2 and it doesn't seem like things would ever change.
Are there any good vn comedies which do not rely on protag shaming?
Started reading Pica Pica and I can immediately tell the writing is worse. Typical repetition of same things in narration and speech is now present.
Makoto is likeable though, hopefully that will carry me through the route.
I didn't read Subahibi yet.
And if Subahibi does repeat its themes, I kinda doubt its in the same way as Pica Pica's narration and then the very next speech line saying the same thing. I can presume a certain theme is reinfoirced at several points of Subahibi, that's not really the same thing I'm disliking about Pica Pica, you braindead retard. Next time think before you post.
Yeah you can see that the writer tried to emulate Sca-ji but he fails at it
As someone who think Sakura no Uta is the best eroge in years I have no problem admitting that Makoto's route is mediocre
It has some important bits though and 2-3 pretty nice scenes
The difference is that subahibi is actually repeating "themes" and not just pointless small talk. When Scaji writes a tangent about something artistic you can wrap your brain around it and try to find the subtle meaning behind it, but what this guy writes is completely devoid of meaning and is just a chore to read unless you really really enjoy the fine arts.
Repeating text in subahibi wasn't even that bad, it lets you see what's going on in a different character's head at the time and I think moogy just made it a meme to hate it.
>unless you really really enjoy the fine arts.
I do but I still hate meaningless infodumps, I know what the artist did and the techniques are about, I don't need Makoto and Naoya doing a borderline wikipedia infodump conversation about that.
Haven't read Phantom of Inferno before. How different is the remake compared to the original as far as the script goes, say for the obvious h-scenes? Is it just a graphical update like with Kikokugai?
>Pretty sure the plot has been significantly changed
I heard it was kind of rewritten by someone other than Urobuchi but I don't know if it's true or just a rumor
I love PoI and would like to reread it but not some rewritten trash
Yes, they made a fanfic contest years ago with the winner getting made into a game.
Everyone thought they forgot about it but it looks like it's getting released next spring.
Back when I played Nanairo I was pretty disappointed with the route structure, with one far superior "true route" and with the other 4 being essentially non-canon ends with a weaker middle/later, it made me not want to do any route but the true one.
Nanarin felt like the first chapter of a long series so I'm really happy it's getting a sequel
Since it takes place 2 years and a half after the first Makoto will probably be more competent as a detective.
Hopefully Iyo and co will still be here
I wonder if Makoto will be the protagonist game too? I guess this would be a sequel following from the Kotori "normal" end since that's the only feasible one to have a sequel from.
I had a completely different experience.
This was one of the few eroge where I felt that the relationships and romance were realistic and I could connect with the characters in a very emotional way. Helped that there are many non H-CGs and the heroines are not little girls anymore (but also not old milfs).
I found the monologues of the main character pretty interesting, too.
The only thing I didn't liked was the ... true(?) route. The story was horrible and it derailed most of the characters for cheap horror. It's a shame because the character routes did such a good job with their character development.
Really, this is the best romancing a nurse eroge I know.
Just ignore the story route, haha.
I don't think there's any "true" route. If anything, Yuuki route is closest to "true", while madness route is just expanded bad end.
My personal favourite was Sanada tho, because of how protag dealed with corpses there.
All of routes were pretty much "story route", so I'm not sure what are you saying here.
>relationships and romance were realistic
Protagonist is some boring, spineless chores boy, and his interactions with Yuuki and Mao are like what, 20 minutes per day of work-related gossip? Its hospital, full of young patients and doctors, with whom these nurses spend much more time together.
While Yuuki's feeling can be justified by story events, Mao and Sanada just come out of nowhere.
>I found the monologues of the main character pretty interesting, too.
Really? What exactly was interesting there?
Only thing that comes to mind is watching how protag is slowly going crazy, but his reactions were very exaggerated, and pacing was too slow so its not good case of going crazy.
Not to mention that it all was very repetitive.
Well there is no question for me that Sakurako will be true/final ending.
But there is definitely a need for a route focused on Rin, there is some stuff to deal with Shizuku as well
Shizuku's thing will probably be attached to the eventual Rin's route.
Scaji said that it should be shorter than Uta so I don't think there will be time for a route for everyone, I don't think it's really relevant either
I just downloaded mindead blood complete edition,and it doesn't seem to be working right.
It says on the page that it should still be playable with windows XP,but first I got a LOADDWQ system error,and when I tried to mount the yuketsubako fandisc it stopped working altogether. Fuck,what went wrong?
I might own more stuff by him, shitposter friend.
It's pretty ghetto, lots of choices and shit but I really liked it
Moekan is pretty random but fun in its own way, Tsui no Sora isn't worth doing since everything good about it was put into Subahibi.
the only thing it has that Subahibi doesn't is the possibility to romance Ayana and as you can imagine the result is hilarious
good anime tbh
Started renai 0 kilo, and first scene is protag being abused by annoying tsundere exhibitionist bitch. Second scene is protag being abused by same bitch on street.
Seems like typical cliche protag shaming shit I specifically asked to not recommend.
Does it stop being so terrible later or what? I cannot comprehend /jp/ tastes anymore.
So like, I finished the game, but this Music option still can't be selected.
Anyone else have this problem?
But her hair is fucking awesome.
On the other hand, the main girl's hat looks out of place inbetween the environment and parasol, like it's shopped into it.
But I'm interested in the setting.
Did you finish all routes and chapters?
>That's just how long it takes to read it at a moderate pace, having already read the trial, starting when it came out and taking minimal breaks.
lol no, Moogy said he literally didn't sleep.
Pulltop writers are already known for having good settings but terrible execution. Don't expect much out of it.
Are you talking about ちゅーそつ? When was it announced? I can't see it on EGS or VNDB, just the official site.
It looks great by the way, Hiruou does everything himself including art and scripting.
Truly a warrior
Hopefully he will put it on sale somewhere quick after C89 so that I can buy 2 or 3 copies
If anyone is going to bother with 恋×シンアイ彼女, I'm suggesting not reading the Last episode.
They fucking forced too much for a "bittersweet" shit. Seriously even though she had kind of reasons for herself - and to be honest I think all of them were retarded as fuck-, For not returning to mc even though he tried so hard for finding her she'll be an eternal bitch in my mind.also MC's voice was really annoying at last episode.
Other three heroines & VAs & Art were good though. Still for fucking up at Last part I'll think it as a lower than average game.
Only at Last Episode. It has some time skip (4-5 years maybe, I cant remember quite right but something like that), they finished their schools, became adults, started working etc. And that was the worst voice acting I have ever seen, most likely they just found someone from the street and paid 10 $ for this.
This one is just something like "Sena After" though, so you can read other three without any problem.
But this one's last episode leaves more bitter taste in the mouth so If you had something like that in Hanasaki, you shouldn't play this one's last episode at all.
I actually read the trial like one month ago, and today is a holiday for me so I had pretty free time.
Routes are not short,but h-scenes are really really short. Seems like they decided to keep sex minimum and wanted to create space for relationships, which I think nice.
Actually that space used for drama stuff more than ichaicha, but of course there are some ichaicha as well.
You might want to try something else from this month for ichaicha though, as I said at >>14291468 it doesn't leave a good taste in mouth.
It's like the artist just picked a bunch of clothes out of their closet and just threw it on without any regards of whether or not it actually matches.
Why are they standing in the water with their shoes on?
Also, someone give that loli a comb.
Asa Project games are certainly not for me, it seems.
He is rather insistent that he's still human but he isn't obsessing over wanting to keep his normal life, if anything he gets mad when people fuck around with people unrelated to the whole mess and he doesn't want to turn people into his servants (family).
The plot is forcing the "I'm still human" mindset out of him and just turning it into a tsukomi as after drinking blood once he has no choice in the matter but to drink regularly. He's also seeking more power to deal with the trouble Iris is forcing on him via Lycoris
He's "acceptable" and making progress in the right direction but I'd like him to progress a tad faster, I can't help but agree with Caren about his actions sofar. But I'm still in the common route so this is all subject to future plot also as a unrelated side note the writer for this has a urination fetish.
So I went through PicaPica. Yeah, it really overstayed its welcome. For the last parts I ctrl'd through and read just the main points. I hate that I had to do it, but it just wasn't very interesting after the
are you serious? she dumped protag 3 times for some retarded reasons
definitely one of the major disappointments of the year, considering the art is actually a notch above the rest
She returns her old music group, leaves MC, says she'll never see him again. MC tries his hard to find a way to connect her after that music group fades, send a letter to her says he'd like to see her again regardless whatever she says. But since she is a bitch she wont even respond mc's letter. In the end mc just imagines what kind of face she would have done when she saw the letter.
Gets NTRed by music in short. I'm pretty sure this shit is even worse than hanasaki, but since they didnt make a cheating joke it wont be that much popular.
>since they didnt make a cheating joke it wont be that much popular
I think it already is, the bbspink thread is already a complete mess. In Hanasaki's case it was just a few autists spamming while others told them to fuck off.
This sarcastic review is funny as hell.
This. It was just one copypasta and a minority of autists trying to start shit, this is just people who wanted to actually wanted like the game and were legitimately disappointed.
I haven't finished the game or read the route in question but it seems like it's the fact that it doesn't really fit it in with the rest of the game so it comes seemingly out of nowhere and even the most bitter of games usually have something to take the edge off in the end with an unlockable good end or whatever, whereas this is just an additional kick in the dick.
> it doesn't really fit it in with the rest of the game
Well, according to http://erogamescape.dyndns.org/~ap2/ero/toukei_kaiseki/memo.php?game=21993&uid=hqaqgqeqoqyqaqjqi whole route is like that.
This is hilarious, I should read this
What? MC was just imagining what kind of face she would do when she read the letter from him. He even said "If that make her smile a little and saved her, then all I did wasn't worthless" > Ending. She didnt return at all.
I guess the problem here is marketing and selling a romance game where the heroine never falls in love with the MC. I guess it's edgy and new and all. This might change the industry and give it the freshness it needs. Truly revolutionary.
Finished Usagi's route in Primal Hearts 2.
Pacing is still kind of off, I was honestly surprised when the credits rolled as it felt very abrupt and where the ichaicha part of the route would've begun. Though, I imagine the 4 After Stories for Usagi that are unlocked after clearing the route are filled with it.
It definitely would've benefited from spacing the main drama out from romantic build up just a bit as it just felt like the third or fourth interruption in a row rather than having any weight behind it.
I can sort of see what the writer was going for but it didn't really work well.
It's シンアイ, not シナイ, to the Japanese it's a completely different sound and word.
Either way, it doesn't matter if people "should have noticed" it or not, it deceived users.
The thing is you can do this if you do it right, and it has been done before countless times.
It seems this writer just failed at this.
He's just mad it completely betrayed his expectations, regardless of its quality. Most of the reviews are exactly the same, people who expected a moege out of the main heroine and got something incredibly bitter, which I honestly enjoyed because it's so weird to see this in eroge.
You'd be mad too if you paid for it expecting one thing and getting something completely different. It's easy for us to overlook things because we pirate everything but these guys actually spend a considerable amount of money on eroge.
What? Reviews are exactly that, you explain your impressions about the game. What else do you want?
Also EGS ratings aren't low, I don't see what you're talking about. The text in >>14298935 are 3 different posts from bbspink, in a thread full of similar posts and people saying they'll be selling their game box today while the price is still high.
>Reviews are exactly that, you explain your impressions about the game.
This is kind of a difficult concept I guess. A review about a moege, is best written by a moege fan, and not from someone who dislikes moege. The converse is that, a review about moege, should best not be written by someone who doesn't like moege.
Don't wanna get into a meta argument though.
From Michi's blog, about ロイヤルガーデン:
>Azarashi Soft will release an append disc for Yue and the other subheroines at a later date.
Does anyone know a source about this? Seems like best heroine yue has only one h-scene in the game while all others have 5 per one, Also they have really great subheroines so not using them would be a waste.
What? Of course it fair. Moreover, this is the only fair way to vote on games: if you liked it, you rate it high; if you didn't like it, you rate it low. Any other way, including "judging objective" is just pure baseless bullshit that wouldn't help anyone.
