>You can only pick one as your Valentine's dateWhat do?
>>17228558My one and only love. No one else matters to me.
I rather have TsukuyomiMeiya can watch
>>17228558Pick Meiya. get Yuuhi free with her. awesome threesomes.Who the fuck even likes Kasumi honestly? Especially here in /m/
In Extra, Meiya. In Unlimited, Kei.
>>17228634she can just pretend Tsukuyomi is training Takeru-kun for Meiya
>>17228671I dont remember this, censored version?
>>17228558Who cares about dates, I just wanna hang out with both of them doing whatever they feel like.
>>17228558Meiya seems less likely to fall into the Law of Whatever when you ask her what/where she wants to eat.
>>17228800I mean, given Ms. Golden Tastebuds' eating preferences, she'd also be the one paying.
>>17228558Meiya of course
Strong mother, strong child.GP02 hair it is.
>>17228558Out of those two? Meiya. Otherwise Yuuko.
Yuuko > Tsukuyomi > others >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Meiya
>spinoff cucks have a circlejerk thread in /c/
>>17230085Would you prefer them here instead?
>>17230085Looks so out of place amongst those little girl threads. I'd say let them stay there.
I'll take family date with Sumika and Kasumi.
>>17228578Doesn't sound like she really wants it; it sounds more like she's saying that out of obligation.
>>17229098Post the next CG, genius!
>It's halfway through february>Âge has still delivered no updates>their last form of communication was the happy new years picturewhen can I expect the death announcement?this company made me learn japanese because I wanted to read more about the universe that badly, and now they're vanishing from the planet. feels bad man
>>17230085Yeah, our thread here is so different!
>>17230085>/c/Why? This series has more than enough lewds to at least be on /e/
>>17228650> Who the fuck even likes Kasumi honestly? Especially here in /m/hey, yes you there. fuck you.>>17228845DO NOT SLANDER KASUMI
>>17231686At one point there were /h/ threads too when some Muv-Luv doujins got translations/scans.
>>17228650probably went with laura in cold steel tooi'm sorry, anon, there's no cure for your shit taste
>>17228558Name 1 (one) flaw.Protip: you cannot.
>>17232837she has mosaics.
>>17230784don't have it saved, sorry.
>>17232910Ehh, curses aren't what they used to be.
>>17232910that looks appropriate; just right on the spot, for some reason.
>>17232910How is this a spoiler?
>>17232837>don't end up with her in any given timeline>her jealousy transcends space and time causing you to loop through a living hell until by some chance you end up with herhaha yeah no flaws
>>17234790>not wanting a girl that will bend time and space cause of her love for youhow can meiya even compete? her only redeeming quality is she comes with tsukuyomi.
>>17232837She has terrible personality.
>>17232837Loves alien dick more than you.
>>17232837>>17228558Is there a more easier choice than this?
>>17234790>he doesn't know
How many times do I need to beat Kasumi to make her love me?
>>17237783It is quite unlikely you'd ever be able to beat Kasumi at any game given her special abilities, so its a moot question
>>17237793>It is quite unlikely you'd ever be able to beat Kasumi at any game given her special abilitiesI mean, she's pretty shitty at cat's cradle
Is Girly Air Force the Muv-Luv Unlimited Sumika route anime we never got?
>>17236609>that yuuko>choker>suitbest girl
>>17240284How do you figure?
>>17234889Literally the best personality in all of maburabu.>>17234976At least it takes her more than a couple of minutes (a la Meiya) to succumb. And she was imagining Takeru-chan the whole time so she never mentally cheated.
Does anybody know what happened to Exogularity? Did it materialize or do we only have promotional stuff?
>>17243479And may your waifu get punched in a site spot as well you punchy fuck
>>17243521I dunno, I wouldn't mind a drunken fist fight with Marimo.
>>17243524You'd probably lose in either universe
>>17243531That's the plan.
Nobody here is a faggot right?
>>17245281Still better than Tama.
>>17230930>>17243454notice how all the questions that actually matter are being ignored while the same gayass wifu arguments are repeated ad nauseum with the exact same conclusions>the absolute state of muburubu retards: >
Kouki is in Vietnam just the other day to see how his toys are doing on the shelves.
>>17228558I'll pick my wife over drawings.
>>17246515What's the difference? We all know what you mean with your "wife". Don't worry anon, everyone here has got a waifu and it's not something you should be ashamed of.Hell the whole concept of it started on this website.
The one that isn't addicted to alien dicks
>>17228558The one that's not a cumming brain in a jar
>>17246237>notice how all the questions that actually matter are being ignoredNotice how there is no answers for them because there are literally no answers for them. Age is a dead company crawling on its knees.Fuck off back to /v/.
>>17245281Literally just female. Takeru being a retard doesn't make liking Mikoto gay.although I did have a shameful kek at her going through pseudo-electroshock therapy.
>>17228558for me, it's f-22
>>17246533>>17246515Does your 3dpd wife even allow you to watch herself poop like /ourgirl/ Meiya?
Why Yuuhi, Meiya and maybe Takamura Yui of course :D>implying I am crazy enough to fuck someone so cute as Sumika
Lilia a cute marine
>>17245281You are a faggot.
>>17250447WHY NO ROUTE FOR HER!?
>>17251918Because Strike Frontier is dead.
Has anyone had any luck at all installing extra/unlimited on windows 10? Does the windows 7 version work?
>>17228558I hate how you're engineered to like Meiya more than Sumika because she suffered worse in Extra.
>>17252674Why thank you, kind sir.
>>17252319I would've liked Sumika in Alternative more if they'd given her more than a whopping one scene of interacting with the rest of the cast.
>>17253146It's kind of hilarious that they barely showed her interacting with Kasumi on-screen, who cared about her as much as or more than Takeru.
>>17252319Personally, she’s less likely to romance because she doesn’t have much interesting characteristics attributed to her.All she has or will ever be is the annoying childhood friend we feel sorry for not choosing. Plus, you can thank the writers for doing nothing with her and the other characters, so there’s that if you’re a critic.
Why hello, comrades! I was wondering where the muvluv stuff went. My, what a fine day to appreciate such a lovely franchise.By the way, I heard on another thread about age’s scamming the audience for 4 years. Would anyone be so kind as to elaborate? Serve me all the juicy details!
>>17256127I cancelled my kikestarter pledge, they got nothing out of me.
>>17256471So you did not donate? Okay, but that would mean they were late on providing their customers the promised products. Anyone wish to share? I cherish drama!
Anyone have the english patches for alternative chronicles 1 and 2. Alternative works links are dead. Also id pick sumika.
>>17258369I've only got the patch for chronicles 02https://u.teknik.io/t7xQq.7z
>>17228558Meiya >>>>>>>>>>>>Her VA was godsend. Her voice was so soothing and pleasing to the ear. The way she spoke in hat very formal samurai like Japanese was great too
Boys? Any chance of this coming to life? Cause I’m starving as hell
>>17259887That company who bought out Age from the other company killed the franchise.
>>17228558The one who is not a cumming brain in a jar
>>17234790>even after space-time fuckery you don't even get to bang her but a copy instead
I literally just finished Alternative now. I think I'm emotionally spent. Yashiro coming back and thanking Sumika broke me like I was a bitch.
>>17261850Welcome to the squad, son.You're among friends here.
Reminder that the final part of KimiMuv will never be released or translated, ever. Evan has given up.
Is Melvina Maniax available anywhere for download or purchase?
I'm slowpoking hard probably, but the manga scans of Alternative have finally reached THE chapter
>>17261850It doesn't get better than Muv-Luv. Be happy that it happened.Feels nice being on the other side of this exchange after a year as newfag
>>17261850>>17262724even in 2019, it still remain ded.
>>17262724Why dont he just upload the raws somewhere and let some willing anons translate?>tfw we will never see the ending.
https://mega.nz/#F!2zwjFCjJ!JDPHnkJxktZCGrlbtF7VrQMain Folderhttps://mega.nz/#F!Smhy3AwC!RDQaD7M_M9GLPbno_WlKfgDespite having a lot of work, I aim to scan something ML related every month this year, two pieces if possible. 12kg anon is prolly livid at my snail pace.
>>17263290Much appreciated KNG. I was among the anons who pushed you to give ML a try all those years ago, and I'm glad you did.
>>17262881>tfw 3months in the making and my friend is finally going to get CHOMP'D todayhe thought 12/3 was as good as it gets
Guys I don't want to believe it but... Is it just safe to assume Muv-Luv is dead?
>>17263326>>17263291Thank 12kg anon for the donations. I am showing a shamefur dispray for being so late with his stuff, but time is a valuable commodity for me nowadays.>>17263782It's being Hudson'd. I kid, it's just being worked on
>>17263782Technically it was dead when MLA got released over a decade ago because it's been spin-offs and re-releases since then but yes, it's so dead that not even parallel universe time looping can fix it.This is just a degenerate general.
>>17264244Can't believe it survived being a mobage general. Like cockroaches.
>>17264384At least the mobage provided fresh content.
>>17264522Hot damn, she is HOT as a mama now!
>>17262724>>17262980You know what would be cool?I know it's probably going to end with their bodies being returned after Takayuki realizes he's "doing the wrong thing".But what if Takeru and Akane failed to convince Takayuki because he doesn't want to suffer anymore... then Takayuki progresses to Unlimited in Takeru's body.
>>17263782But Fate and Muv-Luv are both from early 2000s right? But why is Fate still thriving unlike ML? I really think ML is on it's way out. They could at least wrap up TDA and other projects as well but that's just wishful thinking.
>>17265661Because TM isn't quite as retarded as whoever owns the IP rights to Muv-Luv now.
>>17265656They would get to Alternative 5 quicker because Takayuki is a shit pilot and shit person.
Do you miss the days when we had this thread on /a/?
>>17265661Fate is far more expandable a property than Muv-Luv. It was also better marketed, and got an anime in the mid-2000s unlike Muv-Luv which helped to lock it into the gestalt.
>>17265918Muv-Luv does not have a shortage of options, but Nasu really enjoys writing (except Tsukihime apparently) while Yoshida is a lazy faggot that has no ideas beyond "I liked this anime"
>>17262980because then you'd find out his translation is shit.
>>17265925If you're gonna call out yoshida for coming up with muv luv after reading shit like the forever war, using nasu as an example is retarded as fuck.nasu has mentioned countless pieces of fiction that inspired him, and the only reason he even wrote heavens feel was because he read kusarihime.
Yuuhi is trash! TRASH!
>>17266912That's not what I said, is it
>>17229899Careful, those are fighting words on /m/.
>>17266929That's wrong though.
>>17268646In Altered Fable and the mobage
>>17266912What's wrong with being inspired by different pieces of fiction? That happens to every writer in existence. Seriously, any author who tells you he or she didn't get inspired by something he/she experienced from something else is lying to you.The inspiration part itself isn't a bad thing as long as you aren't blatantly ripping off something else without crediting the original source, in other words if you don't plagiarize. I don't see any of that with both F/SN and Muv Luv. Are you the same kind of special person who would call Evangelion a rip-off of Gunbuster or Mario a rip-off of Mickey Mouse?
>>17228558I haven't dropped by this thread since around the time the Mega with all the SF scenes was linked here.Has there been any new stuff since then? Scans, translation, announcements or whatever?Also, is the digital codex out yet? I haven't checked the KS rewards in forever.
>>17271300there's been two or three scans of stuff, otherwise not a single other thing has been released nor has any information been released.
>>17271300We did get some screenshots of the photons, but little else.
-fourth of june: their shitty DMM mobage shuts down-sixth of june: their parent company IXTL changes their name to Anchor.-15th of september: They "delay" the muv luv 15th anniversary event they had planned for october, because they felt like it would end up shit and they want to host a good one instead.February 2019 is now almost over and no further updates have been provided.-At around the same time, they stop any and all livestreaming on their offical youtube channel. they had set up a B-team for regular community updates just weeks prior.-11th of October: communication had ceased, until they suddenly announce a collab event for the SRW mobage.-9th of November: their website suddenly updates with an user survey. It's filled with questions hinting at plans for more mobile games, and has some utterly strange question in it like: "would you play a muv luv game set in medieval europe or ancient china?"-7th of december: they announce they aren't doing comiket or any other events in winter.-1st of january 2019. they post a happy new year picture.no further "news" has been posted since then.
>>17271609Broke? Lazy? Bad administration? New car? What the fuck is going on over there?
>>17271609>-fourth of june: their shitty DMM mobage shuts downholy shit it lived for 3 months. How fucking bad was it?
>>17264522You're braindead. The mobage destroyed all the content from /m/. Never post Kasumi with your garbage posts again.
>>17271803Actually, what really killed the /m/ general (if it wasn't more or less doomed from the start from being a general in the first place) was shitposters driving people who actually contributed away, doomposters who kept saying the franchise was dead when the KS barely fucking started and some other shitposters who keep mentioning the same topics again and again because they know some people will bite (see >>17229899 and >>17266978 for one example). As much as I hate mobile games and don't give a damn about those gacha scams I'm pretty sure it didn't leave such an impression on the overal condition of this general.
>>17271639what's happening is that they're going to disband.VNs are dying as an industry because their userbase is being replaced by gachafags, and âge is incapable of producing good anime or games.
>>17272453how is gachashit even supposed to have the same audience as vns other than in the widest category?
>>17272237>doomposters who kept saying the franchise was dead when the KS barely fucking startedWhat quality content has age produced since they decided to pursue that baka gaijin dollar? I'll give you some time.>>17272537They are just platforms for girls. The average VN can handle like 5 archetypes while gacha can cast that net as wide as the sea.>>17268864I'm the kind of person who would say it's been 15 years and the only story he's written in the meantime is Muv-Luv Alternative without dimension hopping but with cyber newtypes and most of the content that isn't outright officially adopted fan fiction is a combination of rehash and directly parodying popular anime.
>>17272352Fuck off back to Discord and dont come back
>>17272537they don't exactly share the same audience, but that's the problem.VNs are mostly aimed at teenagers and young adults. the teenages and young adults from the early 2000s when VNs were the most succesful are now old as fuck and forced to become successful normies that have way less time to consume VNs, or they already killed themselves.this was always the case of course, but the problem is the new generations grew up in a world of smartphones and instant acces to endless entertainment. they have very little interest in buying expensive and long as fuck VNs that they have to read on their PCs or consoles.then you have the fact that several of the succesful and widely popular gacha games are designed to be light-VNs, already taking up a decent chunk of the reader's time with their story updates. gachashit is also constantly trending on social media, further appealing to the young demographic that grew up with them.honestly the biggest downfall for VNs was probably the fact that nobody fucking buys phone games. LNs are doing just fine because they fit into the mobile lifestyle.
>>17272453>>17271609So what was the point of avex buying them if they just get killed right after?
>>17273405I dunno, ask EA. They do that shit all the time.
>>17273405probably bought them for the IPs.
Did SM kill ML?
>>17276159Steam release when?
>>17276159No, censorship did.
>>17276159No, the lack of a Takeru focused sequel did
>>17276159the shitty retranslation did
>>17276159Uglysdina killed my boner.
>>17252314Works fine with locale set to Japan
>>17276159what klilled ML is that the truth is, we never needed more muv-luv after alternative at all.by that I don't mean that everything after that was shit, because it was mostly decent to good, but the company could have taken the fame and succes they gained from ML and used it for new projects.instead they focused entirely on muv-luv and are now seemigly paying the price with nothing to fall back on.
>>17278787>it was mostly decent to good,
>>17278790you must not be reading a lot of VNs and LNs if you seriously think all the muv-luv shit isn't in the top percentages.
>>17279067that's more of an indictment of VNs than a defense of ML
>>17279067>le real dealio
>>17278787Pretty much this. âge used to have other branches that did other stuff. They rode on Alternative's success far too much without producing anything of actual worth outside extremely niche fandom. Even then, the Japanese fans, the only ones that actually matter to them, didn't exactly like most of the products. They wasted every opportunity to have motion, let the iron go cold. They don't have a presence on the market at this time, they don't have any relevant products out and all of their brands and IPs are stagnant.With so many ML products going bust, they're going back to KGNE with that remake and trying to make some bank. Avex probably didn't have to spend too much money to take them over. âge needs to drop all the baggage they have made for themselves, it's a dead weight around their necks at this moment. Reboot the whole shit with an anime or something.
>>17278787>>17279441Fuck off with your reboot cancer, the problem is that for 13 fucking years fans have wanted a proper sequel to this humans-versus-aliens sci-fi epic but all the dumbasses ever put out was garbage about humans fighting each other over retarded shit.DESPITE that they did manage to make a critical hit with TDA and then they just threw it out of the window halfway fucking through for no reason.
>>17278787Sound about right.
>>17279548A proper sequel can serve as a soft-reboot point, as long as it functions as an individual piece apart from its predecessor. 13-years is too long just to serve a fanbase with diminishing revenues. They can either find a balanced way to expand the consumer base, or go bust. TDA was never good though.
>>17279731That butt seems flat.
>>17279441> Reboot the whole shit with an anime or somethingI'd like it to be animated actually.but looking at anime industry these days (divert away from actual source/plot, cheap ass CGI, cost cut, etc etc etc), it will be a disappointment to the extreme.
>>17279834>divert away from actual source/plotSo like pretty much all the other major and popular anime like the original Sailor Moon?
I think all the problems they had with total eclipse was where things started going bad. they had to basically remake the game at the last minute because of the artist fuckup. I think there was another scandal around that time too.
>>17279834have you seen the other muv-luv anime?there's zero fucking chance a company as seemigly broke as âge manages to get someone to produce a worthy alternative adaption.infact, during one of kouki's alternative streams one of the users posted in the chat about how much he'd like to see the siege on sadogashima animated. ships everywhere, lasers out the ass, TSFs flying around, bombardments. you know what his response was?"If alternative got animated they'd probably cut all of it out."
>>17279731>as long as it functions as an individual piece apart from its predecessorDo you really think they can get that down properly? I mean, I'm asking seriously here. This is a company that poured money into making VN adaptations of light novel material, when nowadays it usually would be the other way around, make a LN as an original work/to ride the wave of the original work's success and let someone else buy the license/rights and use THEIR resources to produce something meatier. I mean, yeah, the series' home medium was in VNs, but was there really a need to keep revisiting it, especially with them being rich in neither money nor time? Not to mention putting all that time and effort into making TEVN and SMVN after years of faffing about with Chronicles and TDA. TE stagnated and died twice in written format before they finally committed the story in VN format years after their hiatus, I don't think that could ever be interpreted as any kind of good sign regarding their media development process(es). They're a company, not just a single writer angry about the fans' waifu choices.The PV they first released so many years ago as an animated roadmap of their planned projects now serves as a monument to every mistake made in either their business or development decisions. What remains of Operation Zero today?
>>17280043>Do you really think they can get that down properly?I don't really think whether or not they can or can't, if you want a serious answer.
>>17280074Because as they are now, I see no way out for either company or series. Insofar as I can tell they have no desire to continue their remaining works and those are the ones that will take up a lot of their time and effort making assets for their VN engine in return for comparatively little profit, unless a second tide of popularity rises out of nowhere to make Muv-Luv famous again, or they make non-VN spinoffs for cheap to give themselves a safety net, or some hidden boost comes from elsewhere. It is not as if their VNs are some kind of pathing monster of a narration either.Most series that try to take flight seldom get the chance to choose when they want to ride off into the sunset, but if things remain as they are, then 4 - 5 years down the road it will be impossible to see age and Muv-Luv as nothing else but having been left in a roadside ditch. I mean, I'm all down for a revival, but as things are I can see nothing for them. A KNGE remake will do nothing for them if they keep sticking to the same practices they have done.
>>17280116Discussion how to prevent IP death by how to take it forwards and if âge is able to do something are two different discussion. How shit a company they are has been covered multiple times over during the last five years or so in and out of discussions. You're preaching to the choir.
I just want them to post any update at all so we can atleast pretend things are going to be okay
>>17279927That was the third major fuckup their artist was caught for and the lazy tracing was reflected in the pathetic consistency and quality of his art (Yifei literally could not have her breast size even classified until the anime because she was traced from such divergent sources), so they can hardly blame anyone but themselves for being scummy. TE was on the train to the trash heap as soon as they were too cheap and/or lazy to keep Iizuki.>>17280043TE is not unusual as an LN>anime>ADV multimedia project, there's a lot of IPs that have done that and some of them were fairly successful in the same time period.>>17280581Why would you want things to be okay for human garbage
>>17280687>Why would you want things to be okay for human garbagebecause I'm human garbage

Nobody wantsNobody likesEspers espers espers
>>17288470You should at least link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nN95L40i6I if you're gonna post that.
So did those archived Strike Frontier scenes from mega ever get their CGs screenshotted and mirrored? They're definitely not on the panda.
>>17283399I assume âge chose to do that because they knew most visual novel readers aren't exactly intelligent, let alone people who would read classic literature, are capable to read between the lines and don't need to be spoon fed all the time (for people who can only understand buzzwords. they're not autistic).Not that most fans of anime and manga would actually read anything that holds more merit than "LOL FANSERVICE OVERUSED JOKES AND ARCHETYPES AMIRITE?!"
>>17289764It's that way because VN scripts are literally valued by how many characters long they are. That's why most of them have inane drawn out descriptions of food and other filler garbage to pad the script size.
>>17276358Where's Photon Flowers and Photon Memories?
>>17290405In the glove box in cookies new car
I'm guessing that even if age did everything right, they'd still be crashing today just by the fact of being a VN company who failed to extend sufficiently past VNs. Who knows how things could have been different if they had made that prospective Muv-Luv anime a decade ago?
>>17291899If they did everything right they wouldn't even be in the VN industry anymore because they only made them out of budget convenience rather than a particular love for the form, as if the hyper linearity and single love interests of most of the things they've made in the last 15 years wasn't a clue.
>>17291899At least we can be happy we got muv-luv when all is said and done. The trilogy and following VNs are still great and they're not going anywhere. Shame how it turned out though.I encourage everyone to back up as many games and content as they can. One day agé will go tits up and from the on, many of the novels are headed for abandonware territory if they're not on steam.
>>17291960I thought total eclipse was initially planned to have multiple routes but they were cut because of all the fuck ups
>>17292613>all the fuck ups?
>>17293275artist copied other's work, this meant they had to reallocate their budget to pay a new one to redo the art
>>17293457except they never redid the art or character designs, they just locked down the routes cause they were 2 years over the release date and cookie couldn't justify delaying more.
>>17293457>this meant they had to reallocate their budget to pay a new one to redo the artThat's not what they did at all, they just rushed to redraw it the minimum amount to change the artist credits in house. Maybe Sugihara taking it over contributed to some of the Kiminozo related spinoffs being delayed but whatever.
>>17293670>>17293711all of the art was redrawn. literally everyone in the company that could draw was put to work on it.
>>17293727That's allegedly the case but some of the CGs are nearly indistinguishable from previously existing art.Pretty fucking funny thing to fire a guy for tracing but then trace all the shit he drew that you didn't throw out for being traced so that his art is technically no longer in the game, but it's okay because you own it.
Another hilarious note, you'll notice that art is of Cryska during the BETA fight that's at the end of the novels and anime where she's wearing a UN suit, but it appears fairly early on during Kamchatka because TE is a VERY HIGH QUALITY GAME
TE would probably benefit from a full reboot.
Just watch Girly Air Force for the MuvLuv anime we never received.
>>17293758I think age let him off the hook a few times, but he still kept tracing art work from other companies for the TE anime, and they had to do something.
>>17293949Except Canada is still there.
Does anyone have scans of it? It's a two volumes yonkoma.
>>17293457Really unfortunate; I actually liked his character designs more than the current ones (save for CARNELIAN and Owl).
>>17293949>Girly Air ForceCan they survive this?
>>17296206I really like the TDA artwork, think it's nice balance between keeping the spirit of bou's artwork while moving the series forward. BAN's MUV-LUV artwork is nice too. It's really a shame the MUV-LUV series has been so handled poorly.
did they even ever mention why they never did a TDA final?
>>17293949Except the Xi aren't really BETA so much as they are Neuroi.
>>17297585Ah fuck!Lasers bitches time to use my own.
>>17298060I was really thinking more along the lines of the MC having to copilot with his autistic robot girlfriend so she won't crash.
>>17298715World map was probably not the pic most indicative of that parallel. Just sayin'.
While we're on the topic, anyone else disappointed how the *official* artwork commemorating character birthdays and stuff tend to be thumbnail-size in resolution and saturated with artifacts?
Kasumi a shit.
I want Michiru, Marimo, and Yuuhi to headpat me.
>>17228558>Ywn take Isumi for a dinner dateWhy live?
>>17298060I think you mean Fog. Girly Air Force is literally like someone said "we want Arpeggio, BUT WITH PLANES" and gave it to some lazy LN writer.
>>17303597>YuuhiWhy do you want that gross slut to touch you?
It is now mid-march and âge has still not shown any signs of being alive.somebody recommend me some other mecha VNs, already played the baldr series and muramasa.
>>17304285Yuuhi is not gross and not a slut.

>>17298060Actually they're more like the JAM and the MC plane is a literal waifu instead of figurative.
>>17304243No, I meant Neuroi. You got the Arpeggio with the MC and his planefus.>>17306169I don't know what that is or what series it's from.
>>17305564>https://vndb.org/v13666tokyo necro was fucking kino, my fucking rage when they made the sequel a DMM gacha game, ruining any chance of the universe every being a thing after it.fuck this industry
>>17306882it was an amazing combination of GitS, Tank Police and Evil Dead. From what I've read Japan didn't care for it and it didn't do that well. I hope Nitro+ doesn't get discouraged from making other games with cool settings because of that. Maybe if that new Demonbane port sells well they'll make another sci-fi game. We really need one since both Baldr and Muv-Luv are pretty much dead.
>>17306906baldr didn't even manage to end on a good game somehow. shit is embarrassing.
>>17306906The latter would still be alive if they didn't murder SF.
>>17309137they murdered SF because it wasn't making money. there is no other reason to shut down a gacha game.
>>17306970Yuimouto a cute!
>>17304056Any scenes with her and Takeru?
>>17309391It wasn't making money because the ChiComs were hacking themselves unlimited resources.
Great news, everyone!
>>17311963A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.
>>17311963>tfw didn't backSomeone upload it.
>>17311963Finally! Now that's some good news. As glum as it sounds, after all this drama with the Kickstarter I just want to get my stuff and be done with it, but I'm genuinely glad at least one more part of my order has been fulfilled.
>>17311963GOD BLESSEXCLUSIVE SUMIKA VICTORY ROUTE SOON!
>>17311963>all-agesI regret backing this every single day of my life.
>>17311963I didn't back up to Photonflowers tier so I guess I'll just have to wait.At least there's confirmation of work starting on Altered Fable.
>>17312002>>17312338I uploaded it to the Sukebei. No crack or anything is included so you'll have to figure that part out for yourself.
>>17312344Not him but did you add the patch for the partial translation or was that also excluded like cracks?
>>17311963I only care about few side stories in this. I wish we had photonmelodies already, but I'm glad they finally released this.>>17312338Good thing they have been working with photonmelodies for several months now. I hope they somehow manage to release it this year.
>>17312353I don't know anything about the partial patch, these are just the raw steam files that were created after being downloaded + launched to verify that all the files had downloaded correctly.
>>17312344I don't mind waiting and paying for it, that's why I backed the original trilogy in the first place.
Going to read that Sumika epilogue first and leave better side stories last.
>>17312375Don't buy it. Seriously. They don't deserve any money at all. If I could get back all the money I spent on the kickstarter i'd do it in a heartbeat. They've done such a fucking horrible job that I actually HATE the muv-luv series now and can't even find the strength to read anything they've released.
>>17312379Are you trying to imply something there?
>>17312381Okay, you have the tisms. I understand but I don't particularly care.
>>17312381Why're you here?
>>17312454I expected the company to keep the promises it made and not half-ass everything.>>17312457so I can upload the stuff that gets released?
>>17310954maybe don't code your game like literal garbage
>>17312338they aren't working on altered fable lad.melodies just has parts of altered fable in it, not the whole thing.
>>17313300>But that's not all! In addition, I'm happy to announce that work on photonmelodies is already well underway, as the team's been chipping away at it for several months now. (Those of you who've been waiting on Altered Fable, this is the one you'll want to keep an eye out for.)Upon rereading the mail, that does seem like it could be true, on the other hand there's nothing here saying that they *aren't* working on it. It's a no-brainer to translate it and sell it for money however; the fan translation is not complete so they can claim to be truly doing something new and worth-your-money.
>>17313338you just need to check the VNDB entry for photonmelodies to find out it's true. also, they haven't even updated their schwarzesmarken greenlight meme since 2016. I highly doubt they're going to work on anything that they aren't legally forced to, especially now that nobody knows what the fuck is going on at âge.
>>17313442>>17313444>all-agesthis is a crime.
Despite Sumika not being my favourite, I still had fun reading her epilogue. Plenty of fun stuff there.
>>17311963>PhotonflowersI forget is that the one with the main part being the Alterted fable thing or am I thinking of that being in Photonmelodies.
>>17313504In melodies and what people usually mean by AF is Before the Shimmering Time Ends.
>>17313515What happens when the shimmering time ends?
>>17313566dream scenario that continues off of Final Extra universe, everything is literally just a dream so it doesnt matterwhat actually happens is that BETA come to final extra world and are coming for kasumi
>>17313297>blaming the victimFound the ChiCom.
>>17313570Ah yes, I do remember reading a synopsis of what Strike Frontier's endgame story was going to be like.
>>17313865I'm just a mad the game was garbage
>>17313449So, they're going with the All-Age version, have they said anything about an adult version, like they did with Alternative?
>>17316111The stretch goal for uncensored version only extended to Extra/Unlimited and Alternative, so I wouldn't expect anything at all. Maybe someday, someone'll take the official translation and apply it to the adult version but that's never going to happen because we can't have nice things.
>>17316156Sad but true.
>>17316111There is no 18+ version of the photon games, even if some of the individual stories had one.
>>17316156>uncensoredyou mean>mostly restored versionthere's still censored content in the directors cut version that the original release 15 years ago didn't have censored. I think this was the part that pissed me off the most. They mentioned creating "the best version of the muv-luv trilogy" but it's inferior to the 15 year old release content wise even with the directors patch. Just goes to show how little they care.
>>17315028I'm more interested in the story scenarios, and to that end I'm really quite upset.>>17314522>what Strike Frontier's endgame story was going to be likeAnd now we'll never know! YES I MAD!
>>17317391>being mad over a cashgrab with little thought put into itbrainlet
is the story with the cute german girls getting translated?
>>17317408Indeed you are.
>>17318027You aren't missing anything.
>>17318129I mean the west germans not the commie bitches
>>17318129I want Sieglinde
>>17318308You definitely aren't missing anything.
>>17318079>no uWhy did you even bother replying? Fuck off back to /vg/ and stay in your gacha thread, you stupid crossboarding nigger.
>>17316111>>17316156there literally is no adult version of the photon games, they were always shitty console ports.maybe the stories coming from supplement in flowers had h-scenes in it's original release, but everything else in flowers was all ages on PC too.
>>17318892Pretty sure only the card game in Supplement had H scenes.
>>17318892photon is literally just a console collection release of various Muv-Luv fandiscs. Some of the fandisc content had H. A notable example would be Before the shimmering time ends which had over 20 h-scenes.
I think this sums things up pretty well.
>>17318965I'm aware, which is why I said flowers. time is in melodies.either way the community should have called them out on translating the photon collections as soon as they announced it. I want to know who even came up with the retarded idea.
>>17318889Can't go back when I don't even go to that board in the first place.
Is there any way to bust into age's .rio files? I'd love to somehow grab the music from Kimi ga ita kisetsu (the original) and I can't find it anywhere online.
>>17320532I'm still waiting for someone to upload the Stand A Chance pastiche to YT already!
>>17320627After a bit of searching, I don't think a single person knows how to extract audio out of age's games. I was looking at the original Kimi ga out of curiousity and really enjoyed this song:https://files.catbox.moe/zkicc6.flacI guess I'll have to record them all and upload them at some point, if I can get the game to not crash after two minutes.
>>17320627How many times do we have to tell you, look in the fucking OST you fucking faggot!
>>17320788I don't download.
>>17320911It's on fucking YT retard!
>>17320931Links or it didn't happen.
>>17321298You have been fed links over the past 5 years, but you just keep repeating the same whining arsehole. Eat a dick.
Anybody have a screenshot of Ayamine's "Don't get mad, get glad"? I can't make my own because that line isn't in the Steam version.
>>17323309Oshioki yo, onii-chan!
Is the Sumika after-story longer than the other stories in photonflowers?
>>17321769>You have been fed links over the past 5 yearsNot to YT, smartass. Eat it yourself, you're better at it.
Anyone have any nice wallpapers?
>>17323444Sumika after-story is like 2-3 hours
>>17324291Time to move lads
>>17323457Yes to YT several times you whiny little bitch. That's why people remember it. Obviously you left your brains in your mama when she shat you out.
