Uchikoshi bros... we lost.Also, NSP when?
>>603422869Are these websites where you pull thise shitty articles from? They all have the same format and each one says something stupid like, "Elden Ring is secretly native propaganda!"
>>603422981Typically these are generated using a "news headline" type site to come on /v/ and be epic at 4:30 in the AM.
>>603422869>Date, I’ve looked up this guy’s computer usage history based on a recent criminal track record of virtue signaling as a coping mechanism for guilt over transgressions committed. Based on fragments of data from a rather damning 3 Terrabyte .zip file I found encrypted and password-locked on an external hard-drive he regularly uses, I feel confident in my assumption that this man is likely a pedophile.What eyeball mean by this?
i'm surprised they whitelisted a sequel considering how garbage the first one was. easily uchikoshi's worst
>>603422869Sounds exactly like the first game despite Date not being the protagonist anymore.
Man I just wanted Date again and not the retard girl. At least there's Aiba.
>>603422869Post big tit secretary
>>603422869Those qualities are literally why most of us play these games. If I wanted generic shlock I can hit up western shit any time.
>>603423717Yeah pretty much.I overall liked AI1, but there was definitely some cornball, eyeroller bullshit here and there.If AI2 sticks to about AI1 levels, I'll probably be fine with it.
>>603424213I loved the humor in parts where it was appropriate but thought it really took away from the action sequences and destroyed any tension the narrative might have had, so I was hoping Nirvana would be free of the latter. Oh well.
>>603422869Meh. First one was fun and had big tits. I will pla this one too
>>603424321It's a mixed bag. Date saying some weird inappropriate shit and being utterly unapologetic about being a horny retard had its funny moments, but turning his horny into a fucking popeye spinach thing was fucking pushing it.
>>603422869Didn't these chuckle heads praise the first game because they took Mizuki's LGBT line out of context?
so the same as the first game, almost like they're appealing to the people who actually buy their products
>>603422869>spik chudsoft game

>>603422869>Horny leeringAbout damn time this had something going for it.
Yeah, the scene where Ryuki tries to fuck his own eyeball was a bit weird.
>>603426318I fucking loved that song.
>>603422869>an uncomfortable amount of horny leering>how to tell other people you're gay without saying you're gay
Is Date still the ultra coomer he was in the first game?
>8 hours in>Alright we have to investigate these 5 places we already went to 7 times eachI fucking quitAA games can be seriously fucking gay
>>603422869>they made the best parts of 1 even better. Holy shit we fucking won.
>>603424763I didn't think it was that bad, but then again I thought Terminal Man was a good book so...
>>603422869>an uncomfortable amount of horny leeringI will now buy this game
>>603427324As long as there is Aiba pantsu, I am happy
>>603427392You can unlock outfits for the AI-balls in this one so there might be maid outfits, swimsuits and such.
>>603423485Who the fuck has time to zip/unzip 3TB whenever they want coom
Noone here played the game yet?
>more dance segmentswhy in the name of god is he putting those in? that was the worst part of ai
The first one and Danganronpa are both on sale right now on the PSN store. I'm on the fence about getting them. They're typically not my kind of game, but also I've never really given this type of game a shot either. Give it to me straight /v/ros. Are these games cringe? Can they possibly be enjoyed by someone who doesn't give a shit about anime but who is capable of getting sucked into an entertaining mystery story? The lack of actual 'gameplay' is what puts me off the most and makes me unsure if they're for me.
The first one was fucking garbage, Uchikoshi can only do one thing - the info carrying over from other routes gimmick - and that has gotten stale by VLR when they made everything super transparent. And the writing isn't good even by VN standards. I will never understand what you people see in this hack.
>>603428546I wouldn't bother.If you want to play a VN with some actual substance, try getting hold of the Utawarerumono trilogy.
>>603428546They're both cringe, and have eh writing, Danganronpa was less annoying for me because it presents itself as over the top and ridiculous so you let more things slide. >mysteryI wouldn't recommend either if you're interested in these games for that aspect. Both are pretty nonsensical in that regard. Danganronpa is just silly all around and AI springs an entirely new concept on you as a solution to the mystery so you feel like a retard for even trying to engage with it.
>>603429884Sunk cost fallacy, with the cost being time in this case.
>>603422869They mean Kotaro "if these're C cup then I'm 12 inches" Uchikoshi?
any info on when it actually releases on steam, store page still just says '24th' but it's the 24th in like 4 hours where I live.More often steam games seem to just say 'releasing on x day' instead of having a timer with a countdown like they used to and it's fucking gay.
>Game started with a pop quiz>You need to answer "who get shot in the leg during the last day" to toogle the first game spoilerFuck I completely forgotWas it Moma?Please help I am stuck
>>603432115wasn't it Mizuki?
>>603422869This is the only review I sawhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc1laVlQ0Vk
>Touching anything by Uchikoshit after Zero Kyle Dilemma
>>603430332>springs an entirely new concept on you as a solution to the mysteryThat has a good amount of foreshadowing and gets explained long before it's revealed that's how the killer is operating.
Tama is pure sex
>>603428546>someone who doesn't give a shit about animeDon't you have a tousand of website more suited for you than 4chan to shitpost on?Yes they're good, anime or not. But because the typical murricunt drone cannot understand the concept of a medium being animated instead of realistic or filmed or being produced outside of murrica, you will just have a panic attack playing these games anyway as soon they feature something not commonly seen in your typical aseptized normalfag entertainment.So no I don't recommend it, Just keep being a good drone and only consoom what the general drone populace tells you to consoom.
>>603434702Christ, I can cunt the pixels in here.
>>60343158311AM Central, the normal stream time
>>603434883steam time I mean
>>603428546You're not a /v/ro, you're just a tourist.
>>603432115Mizuki and the second answer is Saito
>>603425653What was the context? I watched the scene and it seemed exactly like it was since she was serious.
>>603434702She's gonna steal screen time from Aiba. Dropped.
>>603430332>>603434117I actually put two and two together on what was going on with the killer way before the game revealed the "new mechanic". After I started trying to make sense of the times and locations for the crimes, I realized there was no possible way only one of those people were the criminal. The criminal must either be someone else working closely with each of the victims, influencing them in some way. Maybe they were even all innocent but controlled to do those things. When the body-swap thing popped up it was more like the final piece, it wasn't sprung out of nowhere.
Seriously, the game is called Ai: the somnium files - nirvana initiative & knuckles? Did nomura name this game? Just call it Ai 2: Nirvana Initiative.
>>603422869>dance numbersthat cringe shit is still in? lol
>>603435495it was called AI 2 in development but the devs changed it when they finalized the story and made it standalone and did not want to imply it was a story sequel, cuz it isnt
>game goes up for preorder>regional pricing for my shithole of a country is good>think I'll wait a bit before buying it>2 days before release they increase the price 6x>literally costs more than Elden Ring and most AAA gamesT-thanks Spike
a partial ost released on youtube, search Nirvana Initiative on youtube and filter by today, its 20 songs out of 68 and these seem to deliverately be the least spoilery
>>603428546It depends on how much anime you can handle. My tolerance for anime-stuff is far below the average /v/ user, but I still enjoyed danganronpa. The mysterys are great and even if the gameplay isn't deep, it's well intervowen with the story and you are always doing something. It has some fantastic wtf-moments and I even got a few laughs out of it. Ai 1 also has a good mystery, but really was as much as I can handle in terms of anime bullshit. The repetition and timing of some jokes and a few of the characters are cringe inducing. But in other aspects the writing is pretty good. It's probably a matter of just trying it out in your case. Also, if you get the chance, maybe start with nine hours nine persons nine doors or ghost trick. These are the peak of the genre for me and are probably easier to stomach for you in terms of artstyle.
>>603436130Ghost Trick is something that should be built up to. If you start with perfection you can only go down.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=717bgkiDEQw>mermaid girl gets a sad romantic song
>>603436236What makes Ghost Trick supposedly good then?
uchikoshi made 1 (one) good gamehe's even more of a hack than r07
>>603422869Just like the first one
>some reviews finds the entire game funny and all the pervy humor lands perfectly>some reviews finds the entire game embarassing and all the pervy humor failsWELL WHICH IS IT
Redpill me on Ay Sodium are these good?
>>603439330Humor is subjective.
>>603422869I really am going to have to learn japanese before too long, aren't I? These journos and normies afraid of anime are gonna scare away any hopes of localization for niche games.
>>603439330Sounds like it has a very specific type of pervy humor that may or may not appeal to people. Now to find out which camp you are on.
>Date literally just wear a silicon mask of a psycho killer on top on his original face for no fucking reasonWelp I guess he and Hitomi wont be a thing
>>603439407They're invading japanese production committee faster than you're learning japanese.most high budget japanese games are extremely pozzed and censored nowadays beacuse they listen to advices from "western localization expert"
>>603440161>why yes, I just make stuff up and then post it using stupid words like pozzed, which 4chan made fun of until they started getting invaded by people who used it unironically
>>603440161>pozzedpozzedpozzedYou need /pol/ detox, friend. This place is rotting your brain.
>>603422869Uchikoshi bros... we WON.
Reminder that the same people that find "horny humor" ""distracting"", usually feel that there is nothing wrong with balant LGBTWTFBBQ+- propaganda in games/movies/books.And this is double ironic when we are talking about AI.
>nspthe games on PC dumbass
>>603440269>muh /pol/everyone hates your woke shit, you leftoid piece of trash.t. south east asian
First Somnium was worse than ZTD. Don't have any hope for this one.
>>603423485Does zipping images actually save space? I thought standard image formats already used compression
>>603440247>I just make stuff upliterally everything he said is publicly known.
>>603428546They're not for you but still I'd rather sucker you into giving them money so they continue to make games and continue to put them on PlayStation so buy it. AI has a compelling story but only really gets going closer to the end of each route. But to get to it you have to put up with a few anime sequence that are pure retardation even for an anime lover like myself. Danganronpa definitely has a decent murder mystery going on but if you don't like anime you probably would find it unbearable. If you can get through it though, 2 is easily better
>>603440287>another ZTD-tier masterpieceKino is back on the menu
>>603422869I see the pandering in the first game is paying off. Get woke go broke.
>>603440437You are correct. You may technically still gain space (imagine something like compressing two images which are identical) but overall just further compressing a bunch of JPEGs is unlikely to save any space, you may even end up with a bigger archive due to extra overhead and no space saved at all.Also I really hope you guys aren't storing your porn, especially if it's so dangerous it requires passwording on a private computer on a zip file.

>>603441218there's zero problem considering it's a 3 line optional dialogue on one route, also it's not "tranny localization" it's in the Japanese version too, if you put on Japanese VA she says the same thing written
>>603422869so just like the first game. Good
Too perverted for wookies. Ooooooh yeah.
>>603440871These reviewers were probably swept up in the SAW tier gratuitous violence. They certainly couldn't have been calling the plot good.
>>603441218Go look up the japanese dialogue and see that it's correct.>>603441239>muh reviewsWait for the initial sales and cope when it bombs.

>>603441267/v/ shits on reviewers who don't recognize good games, this isn't a one-way street. Like that image that shows IGN rating Party Babies higher than Godhand.
>>603441090>he doesn't save the best stuff just in case it gets taken down>he doesn't use a password for the unlikely event of dying in an accident so nobody finds what degenerate shit you enjoyedafter the sadpanda scare you should know better.
>>603440932>Get woke go broke.>He says on the thread of the game's sequel being posted, which will likely also be well received and sell wellIf you can't handle one character saying something you disagree with in a game for 15 seconds, I'd just like you to know most people aren't as sensitive as you and don't care.
>>603441491>reviewers are only right if they agree with meI personally couldn't care less about what reviewers think, but at least be consistent. And there's nothing inherently wrong with rating a game like Party Babies high.
>>603441267What's your point? So you think ZTD deserves all thos 9.5s?
>>603441517>which will likely also be well received and sell wellSold well compared to what? Weekly H-bait VNs on Steam?
>>603441509If I'm literally dead I don't care though. Why are other people going through my personal computer files? I'd be worried about a lot of other more personal stuff than what I jerked off to. You can save all the porn you want, artists pull stuff sometimes, I guess I just don't see the need for an extra layer of protection with a passworded zip. And if you have something so problematic that you need to hide it that well, you may have bigger problems if you have a zipped file on Windows 10.
>>603441746Well enough that they funded an entire sequel that will also make it's money back and more. This is what we call in business a "successful product" and no matter how much you cope that it was a failure because one character said something positive about gay people, just remember that it's all in your head, as always.
>>603441731That's not what I said, I just don't care about reviews, good or bad, unlike /v/ who seemingly only trusts and cares about bad reviews.
the first game did well enough to get an entire VA'd sequel with a higher budget. If you watch the trailers it's obvious. the sequel is fully mocapped now. the animation budget clearly went way up
>>603422869>under too much embarassing baggageLet me guess it has fanservice so it's terrible by (((current year))) standards?
>>603442132one of the two protagonist pairs is a guy and a big boobed AI companion and they make dirty jokes constantly
>>603442005What does that have to do with that webm? It's making fun of reviewers who we empirically verified to be crock of shit.>unlike /v/ who seemingly only trusts and cares about bad reviewsThat's true for you as well, since everyone on /v/ is a single person.
>>603441940This game serves as literal fodder for the next Danganronpa troon. Noone outside your discord clique gives a shit or even knows about it, regardless of how much you try to shill it here.
>>603442209>one of the two protagonist pairs is a guy and a big boobed AI companion and they make dirty jokes constantly
is this game the biggest budget Visual Novel ever? it's clearly many steps above most visual novels, being fully voiced in two languages, fully motion captured with figurines and tons of merchandise
>>603422869Based Uchikoshi delivers again I see.
>>603442237That's good, the door is right there and you can leave now, back to your safe spaces where you don't have to hear about games that disagree with your political beliefs. Doesn't it sound a bit insane to you to enter a thread about a game that "nobody cares about"? Like really, nobody is arguing that these games are super mainstream and they will be greenlighting an HBO show soon, they are just talking about a game you don't care about and here you are losing your mind over trans people and Discord. Good going, Anon.
>>603441729>reviewers are only right if they agree with meYes, that's right. Are you aware how opinions work? If IGN can't recognize good game design of course I'm going to shit on them. That IS consistency.
So at what time it comes out?
>>603442209Date simp is going full Date kek
>>603442556tomorrow at 9am PST/12am EST
>>603442509You can like "objectively" bad games, and dislike "objectively" good games.
>>603442342Danganronpa V3 probably had a bigger budget.
>>603442476And >>/vg/ is right there if you can't handle someone disliking your tranny game. Nice reddit spacing by the way.
Are there any plot spoilers out yet?
>>603442342I read somewhere that Umineko's PC port was one of the most expensive ports ever made at the time, probably because every single VA is a famous one and it's long as fuck.Muv Luv Alternative also was very expensive, the writer had to sell his house to fund it or something along those lines.I'm no expert but high quality CGs are really, really expensive and Mahoyo/the tsukihime remake have an absurd amount of unique ones(just a small example https://youtu.be/1h93eF8t16U), so they must have been up there
>>603443013Yes. Canon orgy ending.
>>603442985>people talk about a relatively niche game>ONCE>right before release>well maybe we should be moving this to /vg/Anon, just leave. Just walk away, I promise you there are more interesting things to do in life than enter threads about anime games you dislike and being mad at them.
Funny how these guys shitted on Danganronpa for being weebshit then this series comes out and they forget this happened
>>603442817ZTD is objectively bad by any metric you apply.
>>603443037You're thinking about Umineko's console port, the PC version is the original version.

>>603443376were you even here for the first game? there was tons of discussions and theories.
>>603441090I only jerk off to vanilla Rule 34 anyways.
>>603434702Aiba is a nigger...
>>603443124Are you baiting or are you genuinely retarded? I never said that ZTD is good, my original post was just saying that I think it's funny how, on a thread about a bad review of AI Nirvana, someone posted "reviews don't mean anything" only after someone posted a screenshot showing that the game got good reviews. That's all.
>>603443479I'm talking about /v/ that saw one screenshot to seethe about and never played the game itself
>>603434702FEEEEEEEETI can't wait to play this game, the first one was just so nice to play.

>>603422869>2nd game has more of the type of humour the first one hadWow what a surprise, why even review it if you had a problem with that.
>>603446203Aiba is Date's wife
>>603446203I wonder how Date will react to seeing Tama.
>>603422869>horny leeringGuess liberals won't be supporting this one.
>>603446447I wonder if MC-kun saw the Receptionist and that's why Tama is a semen demon
>>603446648I believe Tama is actually the exact opposite of Aiba. Aiba shaped herself to be appealing to Date, Tama shaped herself because she wanted to look like that
>>603422869Judging by this retarded headline, we can expect this to sell very well because appealing to gamer core values.
>>603446203Since it's Uchikoshi, I'm expecting an ebin twist involving the two protagonist POVs where they actually take place simultaneously and not in the past/future like they want you to think.
>>603448189but we see both protagonists in both sides. we know young mizuki appears in ryuki's side and older ryuki appears in mizuki's side
>>603448697Ah, fair enough, I didn't really pay that much attention to the trailers or pre-release stuff so I didn't really think about that. but maybe the Mizuki that you play as is actually a fake or a clone or something, and the real/original Mizuki is the masked woman that appears in Mizuki's route
>>603449585Yeah, in Ever17 both routes must be in the same time because of course all characters look the same!
my theory for the big twist is thatbecause of all the talk about the world being fake, the world is a simulation meant to solve the actual case of the Half Body Killer years after it happened
>>603425858>tifa Final fantasy has been shit for more than a decade now. FF7r was fucking awful, their obsessions with it is going to sink square enix.

>>603452984>>603452925the Japanese version released yesterday, for some reason the english version is 2 days later counting timezones, but the english version does not come with english
>>603440434True but I still enjoyed
>>603453092i mean the japanese version doesn't. it only has Japanese Audio and Japanese/Chinese text
it's kind of a shame how poor the Switch version looks compared to the PS4/PC screenshots
>>603440932Bro, you clearly never played the game. This is one comment in one scene where they are in a bar where the barkeeper is a transwomen. I know it's the rule to complain about games you never played, but man.
>>603453092Where did you buy it tho I don't see any nsps or whatever online either unless you live in Japan or whatever? Or are in one of those secret nsp hoarding discords?
STILL CAN'T FUCKING PRELOAD AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>603453675the PS4 version doesn't offer preload, you need to download once it's released
>>603453384It's playable though. Just less crisp.

>>603422869So, it's a good sequel.

>>603454026stupid youtuber logos blocking it at the end
>>603453749I'm a pc chud
>>603454404in that case there's no preload
The dance scene at the end was dumb but fun. I can see it overstaying it's welcome if they forced it in the sequel. The "Date is le horny" qtes we're shit though
>>603454801that's too bad
>>603455191the soundtrack track list had a "Grand Finale" song listed so it's definitely in
>Pirated the first game because I excpected it was shite >Loved it, even the dub and the english songsGuess I'll give you shekels this time around, Uchikoshi
>>603455191The super saiyan porn mag stuff was shit but I waited the whole game for explanation on why Mizuki is so strong and never got an explanation besides 'she just is' and that upset me the most out of anythingwebm related came in at a close second, however

>>603454026>/our guy/ Ota is backI will now buy your game.
>>603455698Yeah, the game not explaining that or how Date mysteriously gets information from other timelines, are a couple of things that pissed me off because they affect the plot directly. Hopefully NI doesn't pull a similar thing where you have to make unreasonable assumptions to make it make sense.
>>603454026mermaid girl has an appearance in a somnium it looks like, she might have a dedicated one
>>603457471i'm pretty sure the idea is that it's in the same "universe" as Zero Escape if the whole radical-6 free the soul thing never happens and everyone continued on as normal, so morphogenetic fields still exist and Date shifted but has no idea of that concept
>>603455769Ah, right. My bad.
>>603458498The director for these games is more obsessed with trannies than 4chan
Should I stay in this thread if I don't want to be spoiled? I just want to see if we can get the NSP today.
>>603458498it's unironically ok if Japan does it
>>603458862some anon is posting screenshots so i would get out
>>603458498>even MORE shitpostingit's over for these comfy threads
>>603422869>uncomfortable amount of horny leeringwhat the fuck is wrong with being horny? Why do these puritan freaks hate natural sexuality so much? They realize that heterosexuals need to exist for humanity to continue, right?
>>603458906well fuck that anon and ok i'm out
>>603457471>how Date mysteriously gets information from other timelinesI thought the explanation was that he doesn't. He was remembering stuff from either his old forgotten memories or the body's memories.Haven't played it for 2 years, so I can't remember if there was anything he couldn't have known by doing what's in the spoiler above.>>603458498AAAAAAAAA, I'M GOING INSANE, POLMAN, SAVE MEEEEAt least we'll keep getting free bumps from oversensitive schizos.
Is you're coming in tomorrow?I never played the first one, but its on gamepass, so I decided to get LE just in case I end up enjoying it. And if I don't, I can at least sell this for profit.
>>603459509the game comes with an option to play with or without first game spoilers, it cuts out major first game spoilers from conversations
>>603458901I agree for everything but this. This is not okay, even if it's made by nips.
>>603459351That’s part of it but he legitimately remembers stuff from different timelines as well that he couldn’t have just “remembered” as it happens after and he wouldn’t have known about it in the past
>>603459351>>603459738the mizuki hospital one was the only memory that can't be explained by memories
>>603459612>Uchi yet again trying to attract a new audience to his game even if it hurts the story in the sequelbased
>>603425858>squareenix pic wants to talk shit about chunsoftDidn’t SE completely fuck up every single massive “multi media” Final Fantasy 5+ year project they’ve ever tried to do?
>>603458498i hope the killer is a degenerate lgbtqiatpfrjkbmng+ faggot so I can laugh about it >>603458901it's not. gays are fine, but the lgbt community is a bunch of whiny faggots and we should not pander to them nor listen to them. lgbt community is the peta of gay people, making them all look bad
>>603459851No, he also already knows what the killer did before being told about it during the true ending, which he learns during the annihilation ending, and could not have known about before at all
I'm honestly not sure if I should just pirate the game as soon as it goes up or wait two weeks for the EU release date so I can get the CE with the Aiba figure. I can actually still order the CE, but if I have to wait that long I'll miss the comfy threads here and I might get spoiled.
>>603460389>not waiting for a salewhy pay 80 bucks for this game?
>>603424763whats popete spinach?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=717bgkiDEQwhere's a song from Nirvana Initiative, the mermaid girl sings it
>>603460134Japanese LGBT community =/= American LGBT community
>>603458498This has to be a shop right? They can't be that obsessed with trannies RIGHT??
>>603462507I'm sure it isn't, but still having who you like to fuck as your primary personality trait and seeking out others who do the same is extremely corny. I know plenty of gay people who aren't LGBT and they're great. But every time I meet someone who is proudly LGBT they're annoying as fuck
Nirvana Initiaitive releases in 22 hours and 30 minutes on steam
ANONS. YOU CAN BUY THE JAPANESE XBOX VERSION WITHOUT AN XBOX, SET YOUR PC TO JAPAN, THEN SIGN INTO THE WINDOWS 10 STORE, DOWNLOAD NIRVANA INITIATIVE AND PLAY IT. THE XBOX JP VERSION UNLIKE PS4/STEAM COMES WITH ENGLISH
>>603463741Playing the game 1 day earlier is not worth using the Windows Store.
>>603458498uuuhhmmm where's the ia??? asexuals are valid honey
>>603465409>where's the iathat's included in the + part of the word, its' shorthand
Do we have any new info about the story yet?
>>603467339no, they're keeping the overall plot locked up tight under embargos, we only know the set up
>>603458498 For fucks sake lmao
>>603429884No one cares, fuck off.
I just cannot fathom someone who things AI is a worse game than ZTD. That game was pure garbage
>>603422869gotta agree with fucking kotaku resetera or whatever the fuck gaming news website this is this time around here, uchikoshi isnt really funny when he tries to write jokes and it seems to be becoming more tone deaf with these last two games
>>603470116kill yourself faggot
>>603470261>>603470163Nta but>game writer has to be good at everything Uchikoshi has things he excels as and things he is not that good at.
>>603470521the humor in AI is good
>>603434734Danganronpa was not good and it l++ooks like Americans have colonized your head rent free.
>>603469901I hate Ai but I can understand why people like it.ZTD is irredeemable.
>>603453397>transwomanDon't call yourself that. You will never be a woman.
This companycomplaining of horny content made by said companyJust another case of people who don't play video games
is there a fucking torrent link somewhere? i dont wanna play 3 copes first….
give nsp i know you can hear me
>>603422869When the fuck does this shit unlock on steam? I've heard both midnight pacific and 8 pm pacific on the day of.
>>603473651it's 100% confirmed as 9AM Pacific, 11AM Centra, 12PM EST on the 24th. That's the global steam release daily time
>>603422869Don't mind horny but sometimes Uchikoshi really does take it too far and it unnecessary disrupts the story or scene.
>>603422869>lostanon, you just confirmed that the game is good by sharing some retard game journo crying about it.
>>603422869But I thought people said the new game cut all the perverted jokes?
>>603473753Oddly enough the soundtrack's got an unlock time lining up with that on that page, but the main game still has that planned release label.
>>603422869Based aigods noselling the go woke get brokers
>>603473135I too am waiting for a torrentalongside The Caligula Effect 2
>>603476420TCE2 is already out
>>603476653It's already cracked and everything?
aaaaaa I'm not sure whether to quickly replay the first game or not before this one comes outI don't remember much about the story
based time to find where it's been posted
I thought AI to be weird as fuck but good in the weird wayI unironically liked ZTD up until the complex motives stuff. Worse than the previous 2 and junpei/akane are nothing like their previous counterparts, but still an okay game, dialogue was a bit cringey sometimes though
>>603476946the game quizzes you on AI 1 if you get it wrong, you don't get first game spoilers
>>603422869>Beat 1 a week before it went up on Game PassSurely this won't happen to me a second time... right?
>>603478330just buy it anon
When is it out btw?
>>603478523it's technically out now if you buy the Japanese Xbox release and play it in English through the Windows Store
>>603478846shame I bought it on Steam
>>603478367Yeah I'll probably just get it, I'm totally expecting a twist where It connects to Zero Escape and that's why Date remembered memories in the other timelines in the 1st game at which point I'll soi face hard>>603455191Why do people act like the dance sequence was the worst thing they've ever experienced? Like yeah it doesn't make sense, but it appears at the very end of the game where everything is completely wrapped up, it's just one of those goofy Japanese things.
>>603455191I liked horny Date, the main problem I had with the qtes was how ridiculously incompetent all the enemies were. Having the main characters surrounded by 30 armed guards and not a single one of them being able to shoot a stationary target bothered me more than all the unrealistic shit that goes on in AI
>>603435778>2 days before release they increase the price 6xArgentina? I got it as soon as it was up for pre-order because I knew that price had to be a mistake, it was like 1/4 the price of the first game. The current price is ridiculous but for the opposite reason.
>>603481591if you bought it before the price increase they honored the lower price so you missed out
Is this unlocking at midnight?
>>603481668I know, I got it while it was cheap
>>603481591>>603481668>3700 albertosThat's cheaper than elden ring, but if you mean to tell me this shit was 2k albertos last week, I'll be mad.
>>603482985It was 650 last week. I'm sorry.
>>603482557The soundtrack is releasing in 20 hours, so I imagine the game will release at the same time
>tfw euros are getting it in julyWhat the fuck happened there
>>603485268manufacturer delays in EU
>>603422869I 100% bet it was the localization that caused this to be a shitty story and that the native Japanese script translated is better.
>>603485726it literally isn't you fucking idiot. you can literally switch audio dialogue and it has the exact same horny script, fuck off
>>603428116It releases tomorrow, I'm assuming it hasn't leaked.
>>603487126i think the japanese nsp is leaked but only on obscure japanese sites
I thought AI wasn't that bad. When it was good, it was great, when it was bad, it wasn't bad enough to totally ruin my immersion. The worst parts of it was the constant filler going back and forth to worthless locations like Mama's bar, and the frankly saccharine and stupid Ota's route. Not having a proper explanation for Date being able to see other routes was nearly unforgivable, but by that point in the story I was already on board and could accept it.I bought Nirvana Initiative on the offhand that it at least fixes my two major complaints, the backtracking and no explanation for alternate universes. Gnosia did Uchikoshi's schtick way better than Uchikoshi himself has since 999.
>>603460234What really annoys me is that there is a perfectly good explanation right there in the game but they never touch on it. Iris mentions the collective unconsciousness and how people are like bamboo, separate on the surface but connected underneath. You could easily have explained the alternate route knowledge as Date tapping into the collective unconsciousness via Somnium. Have Saito's brain drain in Annihilation involve Date leaving a coded message to himself in Somnium that he then picks up in the other routes. Done. Easy. Satisfying explanation. Instead they just make Iris and Ota spout a bunch of theories then tells the player to go fuck themselves.
>>603462609the original game had a single line about the gays which caused its thread to be absolutely unusable, expect the same thing here
>>603455543Someone already posted a screenshot of the finale dance number. Its happening.Personally, I loved the dance number in AI1. It was goofy fun and the total tonal whiplash worked because by that point, you like the characters enough to want to give them a proper send off. Westoids always complain about goofy dance numbers, just look at all the ironic weebs who think the Monster Hunter GU dance number didn't fit the super serious dark fantasy they signed up for.The only reason I didn't mind the Horny Date QTEs was because at that point I didn't know what the game was trying to do, whether or not Iris was making shit up or not. So it being weird and dumb added to the mystery in a way.
is there denuvo?
>>603488158>single lineHad a couple. Still, /pol/ will complain about literally everything regardless of context. In Batman, Catwoman goes on a racist, anti-white tirade which ends in Batman staring her down and forcing her to admit that she's the real racist. But all you'll see on 4chan is people complaining about how woke the movie was even though that very scene ended with Catwoman calling herself a racist for being anti-white.
>>603458498You can tell it's western NGO influence because all of these use "LGBT" instead of some local term.
>>603488730Uchi is a westaboo
>>603488730the term LGBT has existed in Japan for decades
>>603488694don't care, still pirating it
