Previous thread: >>32019154This 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.
waiting for clarias...
Finished Sakura no Uta. Wow, what a work. By far the most insightful and intelligent work I've read in a long, long time. It feels almost insane that someone wrote it in 2016, because it captures modern 2020 life in the Information Age perfectly.It talks about the internet exposes us to the malice of all of humanity. How simply being a good person isn't enough to avoid criticism and personal attacks. How science is eroding idealism. How the fundamental ways in which we interact with people are impacting our lives.There are a lot of observations I've quietly had about life that Sakura no Uta brings up and discusses at length. I feel like I understand and have a much better grasp of so things now.But at the same time, I also feel some degree of despair. Sakura no Uta paints a grim look at life, one where we are constantly exposed to the malice of all of humanity and can only survive by building our own "holy grounds" (聖域) with those closest to us.That's a summary of the game of course, but I can't help but feel that maybe there really is nothing but pain left in our humanity's future. All the hope and gleaming optimistic is dead in the past. We have the internet now and the global connection is breeding infinite pain.Anyway, to continue this negativity, I should say that while I consider Sakura no Uta a phenomenal work, one that seems impossible for a human to have written, it also is by no means flawless. The narrative structure in particular is actually baffling."Non-linear" is an understatement, and for much of the game you have barely any idea what's going on. The mysteries in Sakura no Uta are brain-busting, and the text is extremely difficult, with tons of highly technical texts that feel ripped straight of a science journal.I think that Sakura no Uta is a goldmine of wisdom and value. But like a real goldmine, you have to dig through a lot of rock to get the gold, and it's not always a pleasant process. For me, though, the gold was worth it in the end. Scaji is a god, confirmed.
>One of the few works of fiction that I feel has significantly expanded my worldview and changed my mindset on things. I look at art very differently after Sakura no Uta and it's quickly established itself as a work with a lot of meaning for me by introducing me to a new perspective.
>>32162893This looks dumb
>>32162893for me it's the gun cutie
What sakura no uta does to make people seethe? The dick jokes? The multiple 10 that it receives on a random site? E-celebs writing "reviews" that have almost nothing to do with the story itself?
>>32166311To me, it's scaji's sheer inability to write a decent theme without making the other position a terrible strawman.
>>32166346The other position?
>>32166346>inability to write a decent theme without making the other position a terrible strawmanThis makes no sense. Learn English before talking shit about our god, sca-ji.
>>32166817>>32166589think you guys are just low iq pretty obvious what he's saying
>>32166817i dont see whats wrong with it
>>32166311Everything about it barring a couple of good moments here and there
I have never read a sca-ji game.
>>32169438girls don't into eroge
>>32170645I'm a girl
>>32166311It’s literally just one guy (probably g*mbs) that won’t stop seething about it.
>>32171300you know the rules and so do I
>>32171858Gambs* You can say the name here, redditor-kun. And I doubt it's him, the one faggot with a hateboner for Sakuuta is ha*a :^)
>>32166311It was different than what I hoped it would be.
>tfw you realize your wife looks like a bug alienfug I'm getting a divorce
>>32178759This is what happens when you choose your waifu based on aesthetics.
is sakura moyu worth it?
>>32176649It seems like a patch reducing the size of the mosaics is gonna be released soon.
Does はるまで、くるる have an enforced playing order or can I see any of the heroines routes in the first play?
>>32180170try it, if you can get through the shit prose and unnecessarily padded writing it is. The world building and generally plot I found to be really enjoyable. Although even though i was able to look past the shit writing style for most of the game the constant mentioning of events that just happened as if the writer thinks the reader has a memory of a gold fish combined with constant repitition that was present throughout the game makes the last arc feel extremely stangant and drawn out espeically in the 1st half of the final route as plot progress feels as if it grinded to a halt more so than any other part of the game.... I only had to put the game on hold once after each route, but that last route I have put on hold about 3 times so far.
>>32180668But yeah even though I haven't finished it, unless it fucks up big time at the end its getting a 9 from me (the padded af writing just makes it impossible for me to give it a 10)
>>32176649can you post the same image but with better quality please?
is kusarihime actually any good
>>32181669Meteos game? It's certainly supposed to be, a number of prominent writers have come out and said it was a major inspiration. Hard to find someone whose actually read it though.
>>32180668>>32180926nice, been looking for a good nakige
>>32181814>good nakigethats definitely one thing its good at, been a while since I cried so many times in reading a VN.
>>32181740>meteos gamewhat? nice though, I'm going to read it
>>32181886Hoshizora Meteo, the main writer. He's done a couple other notable VNs a long time ago although he's been stuck doing LN and gacha shit for years now.
anywhere I can get patches for old games? The official site no longer exists.
>>32181863>I cried so many times in reading a VNDo twinks really?
>>32182306http://suezou.dyndns.org/top.htmlhttp://mirror.tsundere.ne.jp/index.htmlThere used to be Holy Seal and 名和桜 but both are dead now. Hopes you find what you're looking for
>>32180545Please respond.I asked Fuyune to come with me but Harumi came instead, later I tried not touching Harumi's boobs but got a bad end so I feel like the game is telling me I need to do her route first.
>>32187723Just use walkthrough, dumb niggie. I dropped it because it felt like another one of those gimmickge whose only appeal is le epik twists based on how the prologue is just a stupid nukimoege.
>>32187630Couldn't find it but thanks anyway will be handy for other games.Was looking for a patch for gunjou no sora o koete since I was noticing a couple typos here and there, not too important though since so far I havent seen any that are hard to figure out the intended kanji/word for.
>>32179537I chose her on personality and our interpersonal chemistry. I'm just disappointed that below the makeup there was a bug alien. She betrayed my trust and I'll likely send her back to Klendathu. I'll try to get used to her looks until the delivery guy comes next month but I just can't into bugs...
>>32188154Not sure about that game specifically, but there are plenty of games where the developers don't try too hard to fix typos.
>>32188154https://web.archive.org/web/20160920123340/http://www.light.gr.jp/light/products/gunjou/Couldn't find any information about a patch on the archive of their website so I'm guessing they didn't bother to put out one.
Great, vndb is being raided by discordfags or wherever they came from. They're adding shit like Persona and Xenogears to the db because they're salty about 13 Sentinels crap getting removed some weeks ago. Yorhel already said then that if people continue with this he'll just remove everything that might be questionable as a VN (might even include Rance series lol). Thanks underage retards for accelerating the removal of games.
>>32188477Good, gonna continue raiding with my discord friends. Fuck yorhel. Fuck you.Fuck rancefags.
>>32188477Why are you simping for Yorhel, retard? Let discordcucks wreck havoc over there instead of capitulating to his insane decisions.
>>32188805I don't like Yorhel at all, he's a cuck, and I think they're retarded about what's allowed and what's not on the db, but Yorhel's that retarded that he'd rather remove games than add others. I don't want that so I have to side with him against the raiders. I hope he just bans all of those fags spamming the forums and adding crap and calls it a day instead of going on a db deletion spree.
Quick question - is it just this size windowed or fullscreen? I couldn't find ways to adjust screen size manually. My monitor makes it way too fucking small windowed, but way too big and blurry fullscreen.
>>32188906What a limp-wristed coward you are
https://files.catbox.moe/rbxrgx.pngI downloaded Girlcelly's torrent for flyable heart. I extracted all the rars and zips in the screenshot but when I click on the exe file nothing happens. This is the first Japanese VN I have downloaded so can someone give some helpful advice?
>>32188906>Nooo this guy goes batshit insane mode if he flies off the handle so we mustn't anger him and agree with every stupid thing he doesYou don't have revolutionary spirit at all
>>32189035The screenshots on vndb are in 1080p so that's the native resolution. It shouldn't be blurry full screen. In windowed you could try right click on the bar at the top and Resize. Maybe that makes it bigger without full screen.
>>32189081welcome to the botnet
>>32189071>>32189109It's his fucking database so no matter what anyone does or wants he decides, and he's retarded. But he's made his terms already clear so either you shut the fuck up and he keeps things as they are or you fuck around like dumb toddlers for no reason and get a chunk of the db erased because, again, he's a fucking retard. Are you too low IQ to grasp that simple concept? You can't "fight" him. That'd be like going against mods on 4ch because you got banned for nsfw too many times. You can't win and will only get a permanent ban. Don't like it, don't use it. Or follow the rules.>revolutionary spiritIt's his db and none of us can do anything. He could pull the plug and finito. If you want a revolution or rebellion then take his code and make your own vndb to add your shitty JRPGs and gacha trash.>Dumps: https://vndb.org/d14>API: https://vndb.org/d11Go make your revolution. Be the change.
>>32189081I got it elsewhere but in my case the crack doesn't work and I need to mount the image every time I want to play. Try the NODVD just in case.
>>32189319Yeah it's his database so let him ruin it with his own hands, and let discord trannies do the work of a catalyst speeding up his retardation. This might provoke someone to make another database.
>>32189375>in my case the crack doesn't workThis is why you gotta learn reverse engineering. I just had a crack that didn't work without a disc drive installed. About a minute in ghidra and I had a better patch. Lots of these games have easy low hanging fruit to be fixed/cracked.
>>32189508So instead of doing it yourself you rely on others to do it all for you. And you talk about limp-wristed cowardice / lack of revolutionary spirit, whichever of the two was you. Very stunning and brave. Go back to /pol/ or discord for your revolutionary underage psyops and take this disgusting retard >>32189258 with you. vndb may be run by retards but I don't see anyone being dumb enough to make their own (better or at least as good version) and it requires extremely dumb retarded autists to maintain a database. They're all on vndb and most of them are mods. Good luck getting them to your new site or finding people as autistic as them who spend all day adding crap to games that no one gives a shit about.
>>32189671I just want to see his peak self-destructive retardation lolIf it takes discordbros pressing his buttons to achieve that then so be it lmaoWhy are you getting so worked up over this?
>>32189544If it's just hex editing the exe and looking for a certain value that's always the same then okay I'd learn that. Learning to reverse engineer is too much tho.
>>32189706I'm not worked up, I'm just not a destructive moron like you. If you want to see something burn then get a lighter, some gas and tissues. Have fun. Or organize with your anarchist friends and burn loot murder. Disliking that yorhel retard is no reason to want to see the site destroyed. If you'd be smart you'd make an alternative as good and THEN destroy the old one. But you do you, retard. I'm off. Go read eroge!
Who cares about VNDB when you can just use EGS?
>>32189833>Disliking that yorhel retard is no reason to want to see the site destroyedYes, it is. I don't care about what happens to that garbage site so it is better off as a playground of spectacle for me.
>>32189853Egs search function is primitive as fuck
>>32190035yeah but you dont have oelvns and tls clogging up search results.
>>32180668I remember reading the trial and the writing really put me to sleep
What's the kusoge of 2020?
>>32190088you can just filter those out and never see them
>>32190873Wait, isn't musicus unvoiced? Did they hire a VA for a vtuber project but not the VN itself?
>>32190894>Wait, isn't musicus unvoiced?No
>>32190894Who the fuck does big VN releases unvoiced in current age? Even Typemoon stopped doing unvoiced releases.
>>32191238Even for them they only did it for their 30 year old legacy series which is now finished.
>>32190894VAs are not credited but the game is voiced
>>32180545Its enforced playing order
Her lips are so goddamn hot.
>>32195171>Her lips are so goddamn hot.not really
>>32195207Yes they are. Makes me want to lick them.
Which moege has well-written kimoi ichacha?
>>32188906Pathetic.I hope someone keeps backups of vndb because anyday Yorhel will have a brain seizure and shut it down without notice.
I finished the Hatsuyuki Sakura prologue but I'm not really enjoying it. Does it get better or should I just drop it?
>>32199382Son of a bitch from yuzusofto
>>32200645drop it if you don't enjoy
>>32189035open the maliecfg exe and make sure the settings are right i.e 1080 etc.
>>32200645No need to force yourself to read niijima garbage
>>32162689Based. Did you play in jp or en?

>>32206573Wow sounds like kamige
Could any of you share https://vndb.org/v10934
>>32206870Check master list
>>32206573Kamige indeed. Don't be a prude.
>>32207173And why this master list isn't in OP post?
>>32207199Because fags wanna gatekeep and don't wanna help newfriends.
>>32207262Fucking faggots, hope they're gonna die
>>32206292That's not their last game (although that was their last real VN). But in case you didn't hear the news, the Tsukihime remake is actually real now and will come out this summer (voiced of course).
>>32207291Also don't forget to check itazuraneko library if you don't find something on nyaa. https://itazuraneko.neocities.org/library/vn.html
>>32206870something about that faceI like it>>32207262>>32207291has nothing to do with gatekeeping. if it were in the op some faggots would report the list/links and then all of the games are gone. so just referring to the "master list" and have people look through the archive should be enough. the user puts in some work and is rewarded, the data kept safe. convenience should not risk the data
>>32207479>some faggots would report the list/links and then all of the games are goneThanks for the tip, gatekeeper faggot, gonna report everything now
>>32207458>(although that was their last real VN)Like I said they didn't release anything.>Tsukihime remake is actually real now and will come out this summerSure haha. Still not a PC game so it doesn't matter.
>>32207479>if it were in the op some faggots would report the list/links and then all of the games are gone.brb doing that now
>>32207533Just because it's not on PC doesn't make it not a visual game.
>>32207525>>32207546yeah have fun with YOUR gatekeeping
>>32207262epic spoonfeed>>32207525>>32207546bet theres gonna be someone who actually does it now
>>32207479Why would you tell these idiots what to not do...
>>32207479>some faggots would report the list/links and then all of the games are goneI will report because you guys didn't even told me there was something called master list for me to check archives till now. Fucking gatekeeping faggot niggers
>>32207576no ones gatekeeping shit those links are fucking trash dude anyone who wants to find anything uses AB,AS or chinese forum #5
That list is supposed to be a closely guarded secret. Why did you fuckers reveal it retarded MTLcucks?
fucking fuck where will i get my games now
>>32207678it gets posted all the time newfag. that's why you get told to lurk more.>>32207596they are so dumb they can't realize that on their own. if they cared about anti-piracy why would they report the list if they could go after nyaa instead?>>32207703>AB>chink forumlol
>>32207703>ABInvites are never open >AS Gotta sift through too many dead links and they are uploaded to cancer ads riddled sites with low dld speeds for free users >or chinese forum #5Same problem as AS and you are forced to do stupid shit
>>32207806>it gets posted all the time newfagI asked dld links for many old VNs and not even once did any of you fuckers directed to something called "master list".
>>32207895what old vns?
I hate Google. Not gonna touch that cringester list
>>32207974For example 峰深き瀬にたゆたう唄
>>32207895again, look through the archive for "master list" "google master list" etc. it's there. it was mentioned like last thread or so. grow a brain.
>>32207479I really like the art style in general.
>>32208052the game that can be found on as, nyaa and djt wiki? lol
>>32208140No seeds >>32208110I don't lurk here all the time reading every post, faggot fucker. Also no ctrl+f "master list" gives zero results in last thread. Searching it on archives gives holoshit results for months altogether so it wasn't really mentioned in last couple of months. Even if it was mentioned this link wasn't associated with it and it was in some last year you will find this link and you need to go through fuckton of holoshit posts to reach that post if you're going off of "master list" keyword.
>>32206573Ok, now I'm interested
>>32208396just keep the thread open in a tab and read the 10-50 new posts at the end of the day. how hard is that?>gib download link faggots!>use the master list>can't I reported it>>rec me some games>look through vndb>can't I bitched about aegis rim and cyberpunk and yorhelfag shut it downthat's this thread in a nutshell. god I hate all of you discordfags. why are you even here
>>32208396well ur welcome to make a backup of the links and feed it to any newfag that cant even lurk for a monthi bet its gonna be lots of funalso pic related if u used ur head a little
Shame we'll be losing the list, there are some rare ones in there.
>>32208913You ignored half of my post, uppity gatekeeping nigger.
>>32208990There was only one slow seeder when I dld it from that nyaa torrent and it took me a fucking month, retard. One of those two seeders is probably me now. >>32209034I shared this on discord and soliciting people to report it. Eat shit, gatekeepers.
>>32209130oh shit don't show my ip here
>>32209130Lol I saw you doing that on discord. I am on that server too. You're doing good work, anon.
>>32209130yeah and this is the other torrent that has it
>>32208052>峰深き瀬にたゆたう唄Very sad you don't have any friends to invite you on AB. Very very sad.I'd love to invite you, but i can't invite people i don't know. Could've ask for someone to dl it from AB and upload for you.
>>32208913It's honestly a dumb thing to ask anons to go to vndb if they ask for reccs. They want anon curated reccs and you sent them to vndb where they have no idea about the quality of the VN they are searching up using only content tags.
Reporting AB to feds
Other generals openly parade links in OP and they seldom get removed or deleted lmao
>>32209369On top of that, there's also many things you can't look up using vndb search like this >>32199382
We need new order in this general. All these oldfag uppity JOPs ended up turning this general into a soviet style dead town thanks to their unreasonable levels of gatekeeping and pretentious taste.
speaking of listsalmost done downloading the 1999-2006 collection
>>32207470the links are all dead now
>>32208052>峰深き瀬にたゆたう唄Are you ok with slow as molasses ddl links for that one?
I like 5ch recommendation threads. You list out shit you want to see in a work and the kind of works you like, and good samaritans will recc you stuff.
>>32209652I reported them some time ago.
>>32209652wowguess the free mega account exodus killed them
>>32207895>and not even once did any of you fuckers directed to something called "master list"and it looks like that was the right decisionshame some spoonfeeding retard couldn't keep it to himself
>>32209651Wtf is this chink shit
>>32209651is it from kf or 2dj or should i look somewhere else
>>32209934No spoonfeeding from now on, newcuck.
>>32210090I'm coming from gravure/jav threads and bros over there love to share content with each other and enjoy some good fap. No glib lectures about the virtues of gatekeeping and muh lazy newfags. Why you niggas be like this?
>>32210179because faggot thinking reading porno in japanese without any tools makes him cool or something
>>32209934the threads i got it from were wiped because of some chinaman dramano idea if they were reposted anywhere yet
>>32210279i seesome guy posted 2010 on kf if you want to get it
>>32210266>without any toolsOh boy you're overestimating these fuckers.
>>32210339its like 300-400gb though
>>32210179i dont want someone else to bang my waifu you cuck
>>32210412Yes, you do. Otherwise why would you have a 500GB folder of NTR VNs?
1) gatekeeping elitist fags needs to be punished2) fake kamige fuckers FEMDIC members ( Fragile-Egoed Male Discord Incel Cabal) memeing kusoge into kamige and voting from multiple accounts for kusoge on egs/vndb should be punished as well3) nijima good
>>32210339didn't know yet thanks
>>32210412>someone else to bang my waifuMay I ask why? Don't you get bored of fucking her all the time. Sometimes a change in perspective, in distance, can bring in fresh experience. Just kick back, relax, and watch your slutty waifu's euphoric facial expression from getting gangbanged by fit chads from a comfy distance as if you're watching live porn. Think of all the other guys your waifu is fucking as just sex toys, walking dildos, that your waifu is commanding to pleasure herself.
>>32210477>FEMDIC members ( Fragile-Egoed Male Discord Incel Cabal)Just call em cartel JOPs, gambs.
>>32210588not a problem when you have many wives
>>32209719You mean pink-chan? I don't think 5ch allows R-18 stuff on their normal site.
I wouldn't mind if voiced protagonists were more common. I like it when everything is read out loud for me.
>>32216302same but even in voiced protag games like eustia or tsuriotsu there's tons of unvoiced first-person narrationdon't think there's any major eroge where absolutely everything is voiced
wish vndb would implement some sort of blacklist to allows users to hide all this english pre-rendered 3d trash which now seemingly makes up 50% of the entire database
>>32217122Just hide anything that isn't japanese.
>>32217170that works for searches but not when looking at the front page or clicking for a random vn
>>32209719have this >>14979497 and this >>14979510
>>32217197Why are you doing either of those two things? And apparently setting the default should fix that, but I wouldn't know since I never look at the frontpage.Only problem I can see is simultaneous multi-language releases that include Japanese, those still get counted as Japanese Original Language.Allowing you to filter by Developers using the Primary language field could probably solve that but I don't think it's possible even with the new search.
>>32217197never done that in my life
Any no DVD crack for 戦御村正 ‐剣の凱歌‐ DX Ver1.03a? The torrents only included crack for 1.01 but many critical bugs were fixed in later patches.
>>32224665Doesn't that only have SoftDenchi? You should know what to do.
>>32231002I have never used Soft Denchi, any tips?
>>32231002i thought SoftDenchi was only used for download editions?
>>32224665Did you try using the older cracked exe? I remember doing that for one of their older games and it still worked with the newer patch.
https://a.uguu.se/iymayULk.jpgCock looks too brown to me considering MC's got a fair skin. Must be artist's fetish.
>>32207470>>32209652>>32209748good job, retards. just never come back here crying for uploads if you pull this shit. good thing I have everything archived
>>32236124Penises are more pigmented than the rest of the skin, sometimes by a lot.>>32236009Not as good as Jun's shirt.
What makes Musicus so good? Explain to me as someone who has only heard it's amazing.
>>32236009Is this a Riddle Joker reference?
>>32236393>Penises are more pigmented than the rest of the skin, sometimes by a lot.Same is true for vulvae. But we never get to see that in VN.
>>32235206It works! Im surprised the full install with the expansion is only 2.6GB when the disc images are 4GB. The normal exe tried to install some "libraries"" but replacing it with the cracked exe did the trick.
>>32232591Look around.>>32233159Might have been I had a DL version then.
>>32237665>Look around.gatekeeping faggot at it againwhen are you gonna neck yourself?
I love Almerica.

>>32239225Too bad, you won't be able to play your game then :(
I already got Muramasa DX running without Soft Denchi btw. First time I heard such thing exists, I guess the popular devs dont use it.
>>32236402It's meh. Strong start but the writing quality tapers off in the routes. Doesn't give enough insight into why characters act the way they do. Lacks creativity and interesting themes. Dishonest writing here and there where there's some divide between the rhetoric of the story and what's being showed to us.

Good thing I have access to archive of a Japanese hoarder who's been collecting since the days of WinMX so I don't have to deal with this faggotry...
>>32247001Sakuuta continues some themes from subahibi, but after reading subahibi your expectations for sakuuta gonna be high as fuck. If you serious about sakuuta, well, try it, but about 80% of game is badly written SoL with badly written jokes, you can measure your enjoyment from common route and decide if you really want to read whole thing.Don't you have some better spanish exclusive games? https://vndb.org/v1200 for example

>>32248192I don't have a hard rule, but my backlog is way too massive so I pretty much only read older games.
I only read one VN per month.
At this point I'm pretty much over hoarding. Or rather, I was never hoarding in the first place, I was keeping a curated collection. And now I'm okay with what I got. Only interested in adding some new games by makers/writers I already like or some rare doujins games like these examples >>32247965 >>32248335What I deleted are the generic eroge.

>>32248494Same, my reading speed is awful and I need to look up new words every other sentence.
>>32249141My reading speed is fine. I just don't wanna waste time on VNs these days so I just limit myself to one per month. I'd rather read books(nonfiction) when I'm free.
>>32249216What nonfiction do you read? I'm a pleb that can't leave genre fiction.
>>32249260Depends on my mood. I am currently going through neuroscience stuff. Last month I was researching anarchist history in my country. Before that I was reading about medieval financial structures and credit arrangements in Europe.
Fuck off /lit/fags. This is thread for EROGE
>>32249518Eroge is literature.
>>32249568Eroge is porn
>>32249605That's not mutually exclusive.
>>32249568It's a sub-medium, but saying that VNs is a waste of time compare to gayass books doesn't belong here.
>>32249633I wouldn't read eroge if it was some pretentious trash like literature.
>>32249813Time to stop then.
>>32249813Sca-ji and romeo wants you to read their VNs.
>>32249813There's plenty of pretentious eroge.
>>32249897Don't care about them. Anyone who writes encyclopedia when asked to write an eroge should be exiled from this medium.
>>32249911Those type of VNs are negligible minority compared to what appeals to my moebuta coomer brain.
>>32249995The same is true for normal books though.
>>32250070Holy shit there are books which appeal to moebuta coomers like me? There are books with cute girls? There are books that doesn't try to pretend it has some life-changing plot?
>>32250135The point is that most books aren't pretentious. But yes there are books with cute girls. They're called light novels.
Tried reading some western fiction books and I really didn't like how they primarily focus on plot.
>>32250298They also don't have SoL, ichacha and comedy shenanigans.
>>32249945But sakuuta is a moege
>>32250648ITS FUCKING SHIT REEEEEEE
>>32250648Despite being a moebuta coomer, what I liked in sakuuta was just a couple of non-moebuta scenes here and there. Sca-ji's SoL writing is dogshit tier and his heroines are atrocious.
>>32250648LOL it makes even bottom of the barrel moege seem good.
>>32248738>姫さま凛々しく! スペシャル番外編if that dude isn't collecting doujin i doubt he's collecting magazine bonuses, you'd probably be better off looking for a tech gian archive. i kinda wish i had tried to look for them more before now since they're really hard to find
Word on the street is that Romeo is write 1MB worth of wikipedia articles for porter as key gave him unlimited creative freedom.
>>32250916big if true
>>32250916Fake if key really gave him "unlimited creative freedom" he'll ONLY write wikipedia articles.
Is できない私が、くり返す。worth a read?
Finished Kara no Shoujo 3.Have I grown exceedingly jaded over the years, or was the game kind of shit? Production values were pretty good but that’s really only good I can say about it. First thing I can say without spoiling anything is that the game is an overall letdown as a mystery. I'd want to say it's more drama-focused this time around but the new characters are weak and the old guard doesn't get developed in an interesting way either. And the iffy plot developments.Structure wise it’s mostly the same as previous games but less obtuse, slightly for the better: NG+ has very little new content aside from few scenes and the two actual plot differences hardly change anything before an arbitrary cut-off point. The first proper non-game over ending you get is callously called “Unsolved case”, but it’s only “unsolved” in the sense that the plot decides to cut off there before protag and co. even question the arrested suspect. I’m not expecting a grand finale out of a non-true ending, but at least in previous games the other endings actually attempted to be fucking endings in some manner even if they left mysteries open. Here it just arbitrarily cuts off literally mid-case, fuck you, start from the very beginning for the usual Innocent Grey rigamaroo: replay through the entire thing with a handful of new scenes sprinkled in between, almost none of which add anything meaningful enough to warrant a full replay. The new scenes do have a lot of new CGs so you can’t fault the devs for lack of effort, but they’re all stuff that was already revealed or alluded to on first playthrough. While technically new, it’s still just padding in terms of plot. Nothing really new here if you've played the previous ones.As one saving grace there’s a lot less map movement and other choices than previous games, so less having to restart the game several times over because you missed an optional encounter or didn’t get enough hidden points or something, though I followed a walkthrough on second playthrough just in case because IG has made me paranoid. You’d guess catching certain character on second playthrough would change stuff, but no. Yaginuma doesn’t as much as get redeemed or proven valuable either, the plot just decides not to kill him this time around and one completely unrelated clue just doesn't exist for no reason on first playthrough. At first I thought the skip only seen text function was also broken for second playthrough and was ready to drop the game then and there because I’ve just had it with IG’s bullshit a long time ago, but then I realized they just put the trial content at the beginning of second playthrough as well. For some reason.But yeah, the mysteries and overall story weren’t that interesting. The two previous games at least had stuff that directly had to do with the main characters themselves, but in this case all of importance gets put on hold for what is essentially ends up being a side story for characters that don't matter in the long rung. And then the plot takes a massive nosedive: Rokushiki is just a boring villain since he just returns to doing what he's been doing, mostly for cheap drama, while directly showing his manipulation also makes him a worse character since we never saw it in the first game and it was implied fucking up his patients took years. In this sort of case tell don't show can be more effective, but in this Ks3 we see it first hand: Rokushiki isn’t a smart villain – he’s a wizard who turns everyone else into a drooling ingrate the moment he enters the scene. It just relies on characters acting retarded rather than him being clever. Yaginuma’s decision could perhaps be excused if he didn’t literally know what type of women Rokushiki kills, and Fumiya's blackmail seemed pretty far-fetched as well: "Oh no, someone found me masturbating to a painting I stole, let's help an escaped serial killer (who’s very likely to kill my sister as well – which literally happens in one bad end) kidnap another victim so he won't tattle about my fantasies!"Everything after time skip was weak as well. Tangentially related stuff that just so happens to be related to main plot by sheer coincidence, with a slew of new, even weaker characters that the game has no time to develop. It doesn’t feel like Reiji and co. are advancing the plot, more like the plot itself just decides to give them bread crumbs. Naori’s motive for everything was retarded as well, when it's something you'd expect the game to heavily focus on considering it's supposed to be a direct follow-up to KnS2. Even the artsy fartsy novel parts were paced better in previous titles and made you guess how they’re connected to the actual case, whereas here it’s all given in one fucking go with a plain “oh right, here’s the last part, lol”.
>>32268661And the characters. Second game also had the problem of lacking of a strong main heroine, but it’s even worse here. None of the new heroines are interesting and old ones aren't faring well either. Yukari is still such a bore and her entire character hasn’t developed anywhere from “I hope nii-san is doing okay but I dare not directly ask him about anything” for the entire trilogy so it’s not like she’s an interesting bouncing board for Reiji, and the game wastes time sloppily solving the Kyoko relationship. The devs probably realized the protagonist has zero chemistry with anyone, and decided to fix it. How, you ask? Stella becomes close with the protagonist – I’m not shitting you – completely off screen during said 6 year time skip. Fucking wow. Male characters aren’t doing much better: Masaki’s characterization goes absolutely nowhere despite the game introducing a new therapist character for him and all the blabbing about his supposed issues, muted reactions to people around him dying and having been Rokushiki’s patient. It’s all just a waste of time.Also one thing I somehow didn’t really pay attention to until finishing and reading some EGS reviews is that the game has almost no explicit ero at all – the sex and gorey scenes that are there are hardly more risque than you’d seen in non-H anime. Maybe it’s that way because IG's ongoing trend with their latest all-ages games, possibly preparation for eventual overseas sales. Personally I’m not that bothered, but worth mentioning that this eroge is quite literally not even an eroge, unless you count the rare nipple. It’s a fucking 15+ title at most.As one technical issue, I’d suggest staying away from the in-game notebook before the devs patch things out because apparently they fucked up and there’s at least one spoiles there before things happen in-game proper, f.ex. Rokushiki gets listed as 逃亡者 long before it happens.The very last parts have some alright scenes, mainly because of production values, but overall the whole plot and characters feel underdeveloped, especially everything after the timeskip seems rushed. I mean it may be an alright ride if you've played the previous games and *really* want to see a conclusion for every single character, and by that I mean every single charactar because that's what the game spends a good while doing – there’s technically only one end that’s labelled true, but you might as well do all three proper endings since they’re not really mutually exclusive content wise and show what happened to nearly everyone you can possibly think of. Spoiler: nearly everyone gets a sappy happy ending. But having a conclusion is the only thing the game is good for, otherwise it’s just not on par with the previous ones.In short: good plots are dead, likable heroines are gone, ero is non-existent, the system that breaks pacing is only slightly less unfriendly than previous games and this whole medium is fucking dead and I hope Innocent Grey will soon follow. What a weak way to end this series.
>>32268661Yes you're jaded and everyone loved it.
has anyone played himegari? do i have to bother with 契約 and random monster raising or can i just steamroll the game with the main units?
>>32268661I picked up Kara no Shoujo 1 recently but I've completely lost interest after the first case was solved. Should I keep reading or all the game follows the same structure?

>>32269340You sorta can do that, if you savescum A LOT. Especially Lily is a god if you savescum levels and training smartly, and do all training you can before "evolving". (training often doesn't give much of an additional chance for a stat up, but the carry-over chance is also there, so it's good to balance leveling and training to an extend for example, there's also data out there that gives you the exact results of training so you know how to tackle this) But generally speaking, you do want monsters, largely because having multiple ones of the same kind is very strong, as they all share exp and lvl. So one of them attacks, basically all get the exp. That's in part because they can permanently die, so that when you get new ones they aren't weak.The more you savescum, and the smarter you do it, the easier the game gets in general. Doing little to none of it, the game is not going to let you steamroll, ever. Keep in mind that sometimes time may be important, so having just 1 god isn't great.
>>32281883i believe we can make this thread better
>>32282233I believe the world would be better without you.
>>32281883what's wrong with you? everyone with a brain knows vndb scores don't mean anything, even if you ignore the MTL issue there's plenty there who just rate games based on CG sets. vndb is good for one thing, which is tags. egs is where you go for real reviews, if you even care about that, even ignoring possible shilling, that and egs does have a slightly better listing of gamesand if you have enough autism to quote 9 posts and pointlessly complain, maybe you should consider redirecting that autism to complaining to mods. go to the 4chan IRC channel and bug a mod and link them to this thread or any posts and they'll most likely actually do something
>>32282685fuck off fucking hitler-femdic, no one cares about your agenda anymore
>>32282078thanks for the help anon>as they all share exp and lvlnow that you point it out i remember this being mentionedi didn't want to bother because i thought i have to raise them individually and lily pretty much OHK'd everything so far after a few savescum levelups but i guess its not so bad then
>>32283803As long as it's the same monster type, they share. I think you can have up to 4..? But yeah, your main characters might be stronger for a while. But given the nature of the game rewarding speed in general, and for some story events even require it if you want a certain outcome, you kinda need a full party to perform well, split your characters and make good use out of your MC abilities. You make the game a lot easier if you decide to grind those, as they include things like teleporting a unit to any place or getting a unit anywhere to "retire" so they heal up and you can redeploy them the next turn. These tools makes fast exploration and beating stages quite nicely possible. It also makes hunting for hidden passages easy, as you can save and then teleport try them, loading should there be nothing.

>>32281883Stop playing eroge for a month and you'll realize how pointless playing eroge is
>>32268183It's one of the first eroge I read in japanese so I might be biased but It was pretty good. The routes of the main girl anyway.The main problem that game has is that the routes of all the other girls really don't fit at all, one of them is about dating a girl that has a yandere stalker for example.If you want something that is more focused read 生命のスペア, same writer, artist and company and pretty similar except it's a kinetic novel this time.I writer seems to have fallen back into writing random moege for money so I don't think he will ever write another game like those two
Any game where a mother forced her daughter into prostitution? Somewhat common in prostitution H-manga, but I haven't read and eroge with it yet. I love that setting, especially loli daughter.
>>32268661>>32268718Whilst I generally liked the endings since I'm a sap for clichés and happy endings, especially since the endings in the last two games were pretty rough. You make a ton of valid points about how the execution for a lot of the stuff in kns3 was shit. If I had to add some other shit that irked me it would be Fumiya suddenly turning into a massive creep who is obsessed with Touko going as far as to steal a painting for ??? reasons and kidnapping her daughter presumably to rape her. Whilst my memory of the last two games is a little fuzzy on specific details, I don't recall anything hinting towards Fumiya being so sexually obsessed with Touko. Another being how many aspects of Masaki's story just get fucking gutted for a meme relationship his sister is on death row yet he doesn't visit her once? or even the game depicting her execution? or his entire shit with Fuyumi and Michiru being thrown to the wind, which was probably done so they could shill his meme relationship with YukariOverall, I'd probably give it a 6 or 7 out of 10. I did have fun reading most of it and I did get a pretty big emotional kick from the "True" ending, but in retrospect, there's a lot of dumb shit to digest.
>>32304358>I did have fun reading most of it and I did get a pretty big emotional kick from the "True" endingThat's all that matters, thinking "retrospectively" or expecting good writing out of eroge is stupid, if it was a fun ride that didn't bore you while reading then that's enough to make a 10/10
what are your thoughts on using walkthroughs for VNs?
>>32310519i always use a 攻略 guidecan't be bothered to waste time experimenting how to get into different routes
>>32310519I will never finish Caucasus
>>32310519I treat VNs like books. I'm not going to waste my time saving and reloading choices to see if it unlocks a new route or ending.
Just started this, my name is Rob Clark (暗悪 ロブ) lmao
>>32317558That's stupid but hilarious.
>>32310519Depends on the game. If it's some ridiculously obtuse game like 龍堂寺士門の淫謀 where it's just trial-and-error, I'll use a walkthrough but usually, I'll just go in blind for the first run to see what happens.
