Oh boy, a game that I played years ago. And now I can pay money for it!
>I want to buy these games I want to buy them so bad
>have a few friends added
>my older bro is steam sharing with me and added as a friend to my account do if I do buy it on steam everyone will know
On a side it nobody visits me anymore so I was finally able to transform my house into a web cave last year
This is the translation they're using.
What it actually means: "For today, forget about exams and spead your wings." (=do whatever you want)
>I was finally able to transform my house into a web cave last year
How do you even manage to translate ??? into "bring"?
I can't wait for the butthurt to ensue from all the "NOT GAMES" faggots when VNs take off on Steam. Watching /vg/ squirm over it with "MUH EOP" is quite nice as well.
HOW DO I HOLD ALL THESE FUCKING FEELINGS ;_;
You don't hold them. They are gone. There are no more tears left to cry, because they have already been shed.
No more tears. No more sadness.
Will they censor it to hell and back?
Personally I'd rather see actual video games on Steam than VN. But I guess if that helps make Japanese games more popular, it's not too much of a bad thing.
I wonder if I'll go from sadness and desolation to full blown rage and grief playing it.
I still don't understand this feeling, and every time I see Clannad, it comes back again.

>mfw a friend gifted me Sakura Spirit for my birthday as a joke and now it's in my games list
NAGISA FUCKING DIES FUCK THIS GAME YOU BECOME A SOCIAL REJECT JUST WORKING 24/7 AND DONT CARe FOR YOUR DAUGHTER UNTILL YOU FINALLY RECOVER AND GET CLOSER TO HER ONLY FOR TO FUCKING DIE IN THE SNOW AND THEN YOU HAVE A EVERYTHING IS PERFECT IN MAGIC LAND DREAM WHILE YOU FREEZE TO DEATH WITH YOUR DUAGHTERS CORPSE IN YOUR ARMS
Nothing of that would've happened if the picked the best girl AKA Kyou.
She'd be a school teacher and she'd give incentive for him to study more and enter a good college and get a high paying job instead of comforming with a shit job while renting a shit apartment.
they would have been so happy together.... ;_;
>Butthurt console peasant will NEVER, EVER get Clan-
You can fuck any of the girls in the game.
Clannad a mediocre.
Dango Daikazoku still gives me a minor feel though
But if they were together Nagisa would be alone and lonely. It ends up sad either way
Ryou is better
Speaking of, she had a great route in the VN that was cut from the anime, which is probably why most people think Kyou is best sister
The artstyle was a big improvement as well.
>tfw pic related will never get an english translation
>playing a nakige
>playing a VN without pron
>playing a VN with stupid last second plot twists
Why don't you play a superior glorious moege instead where your waifu loves you every day and make sweet love with you?
Of course. Would I ever lie to you?
You can't fuck anyone The game has no sex scenes at all
I'll probably buy and reread it. I really liked Clannad and it's been a long ass time since I read it.
I remember the After Story translation was never 100% finished, or at least it wasn't when I read it.
Well then so you understand the picture
in the VN completing the game once unlocks some pointless bullshit on a second play through and if you click a bunch of pointless and easy to miss bullshit you get the true end where Nagisa doesn't die.
It's really dumb.
What's with the water in those two sinks?
Nah, Biman will probably get a translation one day. Something which actually deals with emotions in a proper and interesting way like Asairo, however, will never get one, since you'd have to fill the screen with TL notes every second. Your reps are always waiting for you, though!
The Extended Universe shit is what's good about Muv-Luv. It's like a love letter to everything over the top and extreme
>Murrikans fighting in Germany
>Stasi political commissars in East Germany
>Battleships still exist and are relevant
>Cave isn't going to put any of their games on Steam and will die because >shmups on mobile
>5pb doesn't want anything to do with steam because they hate money
Other than those two faggot companys we are getting a lot of japanese games now however.
90% of all the sex of the whole VN is in the first 30 minutes of the game. It's an awkward intro to the story with an unfunny gag of Tomoya fucking Tomoyo while her brother accidentally watches.
Then for the rest of the game you get like a sex scene on a bad ending and another one on the true ending.
I never liked Tomoyo so I wasn't a fan of the game.
>you will never see newfags and normalfags reacting to Muv Luv Alternative madness
>tfw just read it last week
>had one of the biggest reveals spoiled but eh
Doesn't help that I've consumed so much media over the years that big mindfucks don't really affect me anymore. Also probably doesn't help that I
also have PTSD and dat emotional numbness sure don't help.
You can't really explain the game without mentioning it. And that blog post probably aims at people, who won't really read Shuumon's stuff.
Did you also read Meguri, Hitohira, Tenshi no Hane wo Fumanaide and Anemoi LNs?
Is there NTR/very bad end route in Clannad? I only play VNs with some kind of NTR, I hate when protagonist gets the girl, it's even worse when he also gets happy ending and lives a happy life.
I guess Sunohara gets NTR'd by life.
Well I can't relate wholly as I
did not travel through different worldsbut it seemed very over-exaggerated and forced, to the reader, like they were trying to constantly remind the reader that Takeru is fucked in the head. But I can kind of understand why he would behave in that manner.
I may be biased. I really disliked him as a character.
>You'll never see /v/ babbies having the most intense adrenaline rush in their whole lives when they reach the scene before the final boss in Sora's route
>Higurashi will be on Steam
>Umineko maybe soon as well
But do you also get another girl for yourself?
Yeah but he isn't the MC, it's exactly the thing I hate. If he fucked your gf or something in one of the routes it'd be perfect
>It was easily one of the worst-paced pieces of literature I have ever read.
I won't be surprised if people start shitting on you for saying that, there are people here who think it's up there with proper novels
Yuuya, from Total Eclipse.
The plot was not the best either. I went in expecting a lot of mindfucks and crazy reveals. Was not impressed.
Those are stupid people, anon. We do not consort with those types.
No idea what Total Eclipse is aside from hearing the name every now and then previously.
They are games designed to cleanse your soul with tears.
Playing through a Key game is like going through purgatory. It hurts, but you come out as a new person. It's like reaching an emotional enlightenment.
All of them are in my list and I've been actually trying to find a decent Anemoi copy recently. I do plan on going through everything written by Shumon, however, and I'll probably follow this order:
Tenshihane > Meguhira > Itsusora > Kuro^3 > Mikan > Anemoi > Shuuriya san (which I plan on buying soon)
I'd like to go through Meguhira when it's winter, and since Tenshihane is easily his most "mainstream" VN and has a trap MC, I'll probably try it soon. I still have some things to read about Itsusora so that will take some time. Kuro^3 and Mikan are pretty old so after I'm done with Meguhira I'll look at them.
I liked Ever17, but the pacing was indeed shit. But it did the final route well and had plenty of foreshadowing.
Forest is a pretty good vn too, but the shoehorned sex scenes are terrible. Great atmosphere.
Speaking of overrated vn's. Cross Channel. It does not deserve the hype. Atleast tower of friends was good.
Yes anon, also everyone dies except Cryska and Yuuya, it's pretty fucking bad.
It's easily one of the most entertaining VIDEO GAMES I've played in a long, long time. The gameplay is incredibly entertaining, even if unbalanced since ranged weapons have been insanely nerfed from Force to Sky. The story is very well elaborated, and I found all characters to be likeable. Kou is a great MC and much more proactive than the huge bum Takeru is. Also no pseudo-scientific infodumps and great final boss battles. The OST i golden too, jihad still plays on my head everytime I remember the last battle.
I've been wanting to read Harukuru but only when I'm in a fap mood since the beginning is full nukige, so I might as well use that to my favor.
Only other one is Never 7. Which isnt as interesting, just a story of a guy on a vacation with school stuck in a time loop.
I/O isnt really an infinity series game. It's written by one of the guys behind the infinity series, but it's not like the others. It's a cyberpunk setting with soft scifi that has multiple protaganists who are connected.
Pretty good imo, but two issues are it has an interesting part it just handwaves away, and secondly it has a fucking horrid ending. Like EoE in terms of bullshit.
Wasn't never7 the one that explained
kicking the can in ever17or was that riven##?
I love sci-fi shit. But I don't like loose ends. Fuck Hyperion.
Yeah I know that much. I did finish Alt.
I was told by /v/ to read that. Yes it was shit.
Maybe it gets better in Endymion, but I ended up dropping that pretty quick.
I guess. But I think anyone who has read Ever17 first will be bored by VLR. Or the other way around.
Don't. Simmons is a lazy fuck who doesn't tie up any loose ends or explain a number of important plot devices.
The full series literally ends with
everyone getting nanomachines that allow them to breathe in space and teleport through space.
Meh it's no big deal.
Which one had that ending?
Wouldn't be impressed if Kuro^3 sucked, and yeah, EGS lists three writers for Mikan. I'd still like to take a look through them since I'm a huge fag for old/obscure titles. Did you read Meguhira, by the way? What did you think of it? I'm specially interested in Hiyo's "spiritual ancestor".
> asking people who are getting paid to do something better than people who already did it for free.
>not knowing Sekai Project
There is a 90% chance of them using the fan translation, reworking it a little, and selling that
Why should they "fix" that?
because you can't see an object through another solid object?
If the hair has any transparency you'd be able to see everything underneath it, not just her eyes.
I just don't get why so much art does this where everything except the eyes, eyebrows and eyelashes are completely hidden under hair.
This discussion is fucking retarded, let's go back to talking about VNs
>The translation is gonna be better for this one cause um, you're gonna pay for it.
You know most of these weeb teams like JAST USA just hire the previous fan translators to reedit their work?
Probably a bunch of OELVNs. There's some pretty cool black characters out there, though
Alt's ending wasn't a dream. Takeru just went back to his original world
warped by the quantum magic of Sumika.
Yeah his "Greek Gods in space" series sounded intriguing but fuck him. I go to Reynolds now for my sci-fi fix.
How faggots how about releasing some decent VN's like G-Senjou no Maou and SubaHibi in the West instead of weeb shit that just reinforces every negative stereotype about modern Japanese culture?
Key are lazy as fuck, they've gotten away re-releasing the same shit for years with their 100 hour borefests that consist of 60 hours of shitty humor based around school then 40 hours of forced drama.
At least Rewrite was a bit different from all their previous work.
I'm being forced to learn Japanese by my uni right now, but yeah, I can't read for shit. I'll try Kamidori and what this guy said because I like SRPGs. I already played Rance.
TLWiki was never involved with the TL. That was Baka Tsuki.
Doki hasn't released anything LB related. That was Fluffy.
They've since taken over both projects. The only thing they themselves have released was Tomoyo After.
>Visual Novels have 60fps support before consoles
What does the 120 part say? Google translate a shit
Daily reminder that because of wimen and SJW's we'll at best be stuck with generic, tryhard weeb shit like Key's works while based games like Rance rely on fan translations.
just wait until it's in a humble bundle.
>Dude, what the fuck is this "Misagi Kamel Hikay"? Why did you pay $10 for a panty flashing game?
>Dude, what the fuck is this "Misagi Kamel Hikay"? Why did you-
I got it in a bundle
>Oh yeah, me too.
Please. Not even tumblr could resist Juicy Yuuji's swag
>instead of weeb shit that just reinforces every negative stereotype about modern Japanese culture?
Uh... Do you realize Subahibi has:
Rape, crossdressing, futa, sex with desks, bullying, suicide, yuri, yaoi, "necrophilia", incest, and even bestiality?
Oh "ni", okay. I'll learn this thing anyway as the class comes along, we just finished that jiko shokai and what wa, no, and desu means along with japanese words
With Japanese? I guess I might end up the same, I have Japanese + Economics as my majors. Well, Japanese only now. But I would prefer something closer to translation/interpretation.
The only reason people don't release AO games in the west is because you can't sell them in stores, you can still sell them digitally or via your website however.
Also in what way is Saya less AO than Rance?
Wait for Grisaia to release on steam and see what happens
Why is this allowed? Why? Why do they want more innocent Americans to turn into a weeb?
Haven't they learned anything from this guy's misery?
Not your blog faggots. Share FB accounts and fuck off there if you want to discuss your personal life's. Especially the trigfagging piece of shit.
Muv-Luv anime when?
Don't you dare mentioning Total Eclipse
>get feels and cry
>tell about it to my friend on steam
>he tells me I am a fag for crying to K-On
>"dude its no-"
>he starts a thread on /v/ about how I cried on K-On and how much of a fag I am
>this was a few years ago and he still brings up how I cried on K-On
>give him a game key as gift on Steam
>he uses it
>its "Go! Go! Nippon! ~My First Trip to Japan~" from some bundle
he will probably flip when I play clannad on Steam
Clannad is by far my least favorite of all the KEY titles.
Holy shit... I almost thought my hentai I watched last night became a game.
Come on man, at least post the best
And this thread is what exactly?
Pic related to not /v/ related.
>Mad Dread Kick
It seems like i'm some kind of finisher move.
Yeah, I can imagine some pretty crazy shit happening. But since you guys know much more about them than me (I just stay quietly with my VNs and I visit /v/ once in a blue moon), do you think games such as Rance or Ikusa Megami could actually bring trouble to the western VN scene? Do you think the feminists would go crazy over them and try to shut them down as soon as possible? Have feminists even complained about VNs being EVIL and sexist?
Wonder why people can't get enough of tear jerker shits, especially from Key
Why not try some "healing" anime stuff? It cures your edginess, depression and melancholia
Pic definitely related
Well the more extreme members hate Persona so I imagine VNs would be in their sights if they were ever exposed to them. I mean think about it, to them VNs are literally objectifying women. It's fucking hilarious that feminist in Japan means the exact opposite as it does here though.
>crying watching keion
What a fucking pussy
Welp, i never will understand why people would want to play a VN game, especially non-Japanese people
At least if you play the +18 version you get prized images of them girls fucking but non-H Visual Novel? Like for what purpose?
its probably best way to tell a story from 1st person perspective
that one game changed my way of looking into life
Recommend me some good loli VNs then faggot
