So I'm pretty concerned about the amount of blood, gore, and scat in these games so I gotta ask; baring all that shit (literally) Is it worth spending 30+ hours on multiple playthroughs?
Is it just worth just blasting through them ignoring story and just fapping to scenes?
gonna dump a few other VN's I still gotta play I'd hate to start a faggy discussion on a porn board but still I can't get much opinion anywhere else.
Haven't touched this because jesus christ it seems I gotta put the better half of a year into this fucking series with it's VN's, anime's, vita games, books. .. .
Beat Kangoku and loved it probably favorite of the bunch.
Played first asagi game about half way through it's just damn if the scenes don't start to drag out.
Anyone else just have a monument of porn they just don't touch?
I've got more than a dozen VNs I have yet to complete.
To answer your question: Euphoria has an awesome story and there's not that much scat (around one scene per route / girl). You can also turn off seeing it in the options. We also have a Euphoria thread atm. It's primarily focused on dominating / raping the girls, but it's really nothing compared to stuff like Maggot Baits. Definitely don't skip scenes there, as the story is extremely good for a Nukige.
I haven't really touched Starless since I'm still waiting for the text patch, but judging from the CGs and from what I've heard it has a shit ton of Scat (heh) and the story itself is pretty bad with lots of bad endings and not a single revenge ending. Not comparable to Bible Black. It does have good sex scenes, but they are extremely long and full of femdom, so if that's not your thing, better ignore it.
FSN is really good, it's just that the Fate route is full of exposition and pretty boring compared to UBW and HF. Don't play it for the porn, though. There's like two short sex scenes per route.
Another recommendation from me would be Steins;Gate. I'm looking forward to getting Zero in the West, hopefully within a few years.
Thx for info didn't think about /vg/ haven't been there in forever.
What patch for Starless?
Briefly reading about it I only thought there was a content restoration patch that's come out didn't know it needed other work.
The content restoration patch was released even before the game was out. Normally, the scat, bestiality and one guro scenes weren't displayed. The patch made the content visible again.
They had another patch a few weeks later that fixed some pixel censors and promised to do another one that fixed the hundreds of typos. It's been 6 months and there's still nothing in that regard because JAST can't get their shit together. I won't pay them 50 $ again.
The tremendous amount of errors ruins my reading experience and I hope they will still release the promised patch, even if I have doubts.
Oh, and if you plan to get euphoria and have the money, please buy it from Manga Gamer. We don't get many good Nukige in the West and every sale counts. They're very lucky if they sell more than 2000 copies.
Honestly Starless is fun if you don't try to fap to every scene. You will probably jizz too much in the beginning and the rest of the game will be too much.
But your gonna want to just hit skip button on a few skat scenes and the one gore scene.
Starless is a fun fap even ignoring the story since it serves a lot of fetishes. You might be turned off by them femdom and if you prefer "all girls to have a route and happy ending" (they don't). There's a lot of missed opportunities but if you just wanna fap, the game has a lot hot girls for your needs.
>The party with Marie's friends.
I didn't know I had it in me to stay hard after 5 ejaculations til I read Starless.
It is bretty gud. Definitely worth the money I spent. I would even say it's the best translated VN we got this year. There's supposed to be a 6th episode of the Anime coming out in February which looks like the Rinne ending.
I've begun playing some old VNs I never got around to since fapping to VNs always take so fucking long
They aren't translated at all but I listen to all the female dialogue in Japanese and listen for stuff I understand and to attach a personality to the character.
Anyone else do this or am I a weird fucker? It literally takes like half a week to get through one route of a VN this way.
What would you anons recommend me if I wanted a VN with plenty of story, and a good( or fun) story light on feels, but also just happened to have sex scenes in it.
preferably not slice of life
I honestly don't mind scat, it doesn't arouse me in any way but I can see how it could work as a story piece.
That being said I'm worried about Starless because I doubt the scat's done well and odds are it's just having shit in the game for the sake of having shit.
I want a VN which doesn't end after the characters start dating and/or have sex a couple times. I want to see them go on lots of dates etc.. Sadly this is really uncommon at most you will get is like 2-3 dates in one route.
I have finished clanadd of course, it's good but most routes have too much drama or are too short for me.
And it also has that problem where the route ends once they finally start dating. (Apart from Nagisa After and Tomoyo After)
The amount of typos and poor grammar in Starless is unacceptable considering this is supposed to be a professional release. I'm only on day two, and I've seen multiple mistakes, including homonym mix-ups and "a;;" instead of "all". Did no one proofread this shit?
Just to join discussion,
I'm not really into VN at all, it always gets me down without patience, not that I don't like story, but for strong stories I would prefer always reading mangas, as they usually provide quality story combined with possibly good art...
The only point of VN would be the potential for animation and actual game choices... but I think usually those are very poorly done, most of the VNs I played (only a few sure) had incomprehensible amounts of useless dialogs that just annoys the hell out the read them.
That's why I rather read the manga or get anime. For actual games I rather have some actual gamemplay, with hopefully good build-up.
Yeah main reason I still haven't beaten asagi because jesus every scene goes on about 20 minutes longer than it should.
School Days isn't so bad considering instead of an interactive novel it's an interactive anime which makes sifting though the BS a ton easier.
Hm, Euphoria doesn't reallyha ve any useless fluff that stretches the game time. The story is really interesting and honestly the better part of the game compared to its sex scenes.
The ones in the latter half of Nemu's route were unfappable to me. I wouldn't have thought to witness both a public toilet and public washing machine.
Might as well ask here. I am not playing Starless. Instead, i downloaded the entire photo set and am faping through it while it autoscrolls. The scenes appear randomly and they don't make sense but that doesn't bother me cuz i am only interested in it for the hardcore porn part. I did notice that it's probably incomplete (like, there were 2 scenes with dogs and a pig, the same photo just repeated for about 20 times for each scene).
My question is, if anyone else is doing this, how do you enhance the experience ? Like...what music do you listen to while it scrolls ? I am unoriginal so i just started playing the Starless soundtrack album on youtube. I know you probably think i suck but oh well..i just wanna wank. I don't wanna read a fucking novel just to fap, i know the story and its shit. I love only the detailed art of this hentai, and all the unique shit it approaches.
depends on the girl really. I found that besides the normal ending, the Rika one is the fastest however it still lasted over 5h (1 fap only cuz rika's shit) others are still ~5-6h despite skipping already-seen text. The game story consists of two parts: the main part and the epilogue which depends on the girl you've chosen.
The staff comments are awesome.
Overall Rika's route wasn't all that bad. I expected worse.
I bought it from Manga Gamer, like everyone supporting the industry and wants more English Nukige should.
Alright, so Im just going to get on with it because /d/ didnt have a /vn/ thread up and /vg/'s visual novel thread is probably too tame:
I need good monster/beast/tentacle VN's. Not hopeing too much for translated (other then the first Taimanin asagi), but thats top of the list if you can think of any.
I started monster park, but the machine translation was too confusing to really let me pick my route. If anyone has monster parks though, I'd appreciate another shot at it.
also ANY (translated or not) orcsoft games to recommend? The art gets me to diamond status in record time.
Also: where do you folks get your VN's? I keep finding nothing but CG sets from nyaa.
I really liked this Orcsoft game:
>Kagachi-sama o Nagusame Matsurimasu ~Netorare-mura Midarayoru Hanashi~
It's NTR, but most of the endings are pretty tame, since the MC willingly gets cucked (so it's more along the lines of Netorase). There's one or two true Netorare endings and the same amount of Netori endings and lots of different fetishes. Sumeragi Kohaku's art is fantastic.
Manga Gamer has some translated Tentacle games. Just visit their site and see what they have to offer with the tentacle tag. Space Pirate Sara has a few tentacle scenes, but they're not a big focus. Armored Warrior Iris and their Hentai Indurstries games have tentacles as well.
>Also: where do you folks get your VN's? I keep finding nothing but CG sets from nyaa.
Did you look at sukebei nyaa instead of the normal one? If searching with latin letters doesn't work, try to copy the Japanese Kana and Kanji from vndb. That should work.
Erogedownload has pretty much every English translated Eroge on its site
What do you guys use for translation? Ive been using Atlas with with a Tah script. Its not very great. A lot of it depends on the game, but even then its still barley passable. Most of the stuff i've found on machine translation is from like 2006ish. Have there been any major advancements in it?
Is a replacement script. From everything ive read about it, it kinda dumbs down the wording/grammer to make the translation easier/cleaner for atlus. Its a little better than default atlus. You have to use the dictonary that comes with it, and alter the translation environment. It just makes everything a little smoother. Its like going from random words written on a page, to a sentence written by a 4 year old.
After completing Euphoria, I feel kind of empty. The scenes in the true route really got to me, especially the Devil Ending. That was one fucked up harem.
Other than that, I'm still confused by what was actually real or not.
And Rika was utterly useless for the story overall. She could have been cut out of the game and nothing would have changed except of some missing sex scenes.
Nemu > Rinne = Natsuki > Kanae > Rika
Anybody got a download link for Eroge! ~H mo Game mo Kaihatsu Zanmai~
I found it forever ago and have since lost the files and can't find a download of the VN for the life of me, plenty of the hentai though.
I will also be very OK with a futa VN that isn't bible black or starless.
The story in small notes
[Spoiler]You're fucked. Like fucked in some Inception shit. The problem is, what is real and what is not? And in the end of the day, do you care about that?[/Spoiler]
Marie's dialogue during her first sex scene was crazy hot. All that teasing about knocking her up, I get hard just thinking about it.
How do you get the Devil Ending and the rest of the CGs from when Kanae is being dissected?
I'm pretty sure I've gone through all the choices. Only route I haven't done is Natsuki's.
There are new choices in the True Route compared to the Nemu route. Whenever a character or Keisuke himself asks you if you want to unleash your inner urges, don't pick the answer that denies it (e.g. don't look away when the cult practices their ceremony). You notice these choices are new when the text afterwards is slightly different compared to the Nemu route.
If you pick all of them you get an additional rape scene instead of a sex scene with Kanae and the final choice will be replaced, allowing you to enact what was peeped out in the dialogue.
Natsuki's route is pretty nice. I think it was overall the most Vanilla one and I liked Misonoo Mei's performance. It's pretty short (just like Rika's) and you get some of the best sex scenes in the game.
No, there aren't. At least no lawas anyone would take seriously, especially when all of it is drawn. Eroge! already had scat as well and that is one of their consistent top sellers.
Because JAST is stupid. They already had scat in an old game of them that was centered around toilets without censoring anything of it. They probably removed the scat because people are uncomfortable with it. Show me this supposed anti-scat law.
There are some against bestiality, though.
Did this shit show every get fixed?
IE fixed routes and restoration?
The page of euphoria on vndb and Manga Gamer's site already have good summaries that don't spoil too much. The twists are something you should experience on your own. It's really worth buying and all of the good reviews are completely justified.
"Is this cage hell or paradise?
They wake up in a white room remembering nothing――
The protagonist Takato Keisuke and 6 others are locked up in these hidden white rooms. His childhood friend Hokari Kanae, classmate Andou Miyako, underclassmate Makiba Rika, English teacher Aoi Natsuki, same year Byakuya Rinne, and classmate Manaka Nemu. While still confused about their unusual situation, a “mystery voice” suddenly speaks to them: “A game has now started.”
In order to escape the room, Keisuke is the “unlocker” and one heroine the “keyhole”. With an assigned act, he must “use the key”.
After hearing the unreasonable and immoral requirements to win, Miyako gets pissed and snaps on the “mystery voice”. Suddenly the lights go out. The girls scream. The lights come back on, reilluminating the white room. They can see Miyako bound to a grotesque torture device.
“Anyone who quits the game will die”
Her screaming begins in tandem with the electrical current. With eyes wide open in fear, she pisses and shits herself. Everyone else starts freaking out. However, Keisuke seemed to be getting aroused by Miyako’s appearance. That was his secret, his urge to assault and humiliate girls.
However, Nemu could see right through him and knew. Nemu takes advantage, forcing the protagonist to submit to him as she brings her lips up to his: “This is a contract kiss.”
Keisuke was surprised by Nemu’s behavior but he wants to protect Kanae and decides for the sake of escaping, he will violate the others. Can Keisuke escape the white rooms and return to his normal life? Or will he hold back his own dark urges…? ―――It is you who decides in the end."
What? The game? It's way more harmless than you might think at first. Like half of the "rape scenes" are more or less consensual vanilla sex. The disturbing scenes are maybe 10 - 15 % in total.
Do someone know how to get the english patches for the people who got late to the kickstarter?
Most of the extreme scenes are very short and the gore is never fetishized. The death scenes are bad endings most of the time.
The scat is like one scene per route.
The most hardcore scenes are in the Devil Ending, which is more or less a bad ending.
While the degenerate scenes in Starless are purely for fetish reasons, they serve a story purpose in euphoria most of the time.
I will give you a short rundown of Rika's route (slight spoilers):
>Rape scene with head underwater
>Enema / Scat scene
>Handjob in Swimming Suit scene
>Webcam sex scene (the best one)
>Gokkun / Cum Food Eating scene
>Two Vanilla sex scenes
The only thing extreme here is the scat scene and her constant whining.
It's mostly the same for other routes with one or maybe two hardcore scenes and the rest being harmless to midcore.
The latter half of the Nemu and True Route is filled with extreme scenes, but those have a story purpose as well.
It's nowhere near Starless' level and unlike Starless it actually has a good story.
The childhood friend route best. She was easily the most pure one of them all, and had probably the best vanilla scene in the whole game when they were in the classroom together. The sadistic bitch can fuck off.
Somehow the ending made me think that she is actually a Mega Tsundere. And she is still better than Rika.
Natsuki had great sex scenes as well, even if her route wasn't all that good.
Nice quads, btw.
>shizunes tits are smaller than in the actual art
Just watched the Grisaia anime series and it's gotten me amped up to try some ero VN, but I'm not really jiving with these multiple end routes. Do these games ever have a full blown harem route where you just get to fuck all the girls in one playthrough?
Grisaia is on steam but fuck playing it more than once. I just wanna see the cg and hopefully it's accompanied with some voice-work, if anyone can confirm that.
>Do these games ever have a full blown harem route where you just get to fuck all the girls in one playthrough?
If there is a harem route, most of the time you either have to get other endings first or they're tricky to get (or both).
There are plenty of characters and people younger than her that are not as selfish and cruel as she is.
All you have to do is be nice to her and give her whatever she wants and she's suddenly perfectly fine with any horrible shit you do. She deserved what happened to her in Nemu's route.
>The sadistic bitch can fuck off.
Sadistic bitch was obviously a huge tsundere with issues that felt she had to act like an asshole in order to not get hurt by all the horrible shit she sees everyday. Considering the environment she grew up in, and the fact that the end pretty much proves she has a conscience, it's easy to forgive her. Not to mention she likely didn't expect the protag to choose her and was probably bitter about that.
No spoiler tags on red boards, so SPOILERS:
She was probably robbed of her memories and intelligence after Keisuke left her to stabilize her again and make her able to maintain paradise.
Any idea where I can download any of these two VNs? (Or anything by Ume Soft for that matter)
CGs without text are already on e-hentai, but I want the VN version (voice, pacing...etc.)
Apparently all the links in the usual places are dead and I don't have the link for that certain super MEGA folder.
>fuccboi ending without any of the normal girls
What kind of girls were you looking for in Starless?
And it is basically a harem. All the Mamiya bitches want his cock and he is in charge of training all the new chicks that come through the door.
The only reason there'd be to hate it is it's an "evil" ending like the one in Bible Black where the MC goes full sociopath.
I agree. This is the closest thing to a harem with the Mamiya bitches. That said, it still feels a let down in that MC just goes with the flow in that end. I felt his enthusiasm when he was offered the job but when the actual ending came, he didn't show any of that in his milking session, or when Marisa told him it's his turn, or when Marie said she wants his cum for her trip or when he is cleaning up Sachie. He's as lifeless as in Marika's End.
>And it is basically a harem. All the Mamiya bitches want his cock and he is in charge of training all the new chicks that come through the door.
And all of these girls he trains eventually get discarded and treated like breeding machines, just like all of the other ones before. What's so good about that?
I would much rather have a proper revenge ending where the Mamiyas are turned into sex slaves by the Yakuza or something instead of a shit ton of bad endings. Bible Black was much better written than the fetish fest of Starless.
