Thoughts on Katawa? Favorite grill? or just a VN general thread ... if they're even for this board, idk
>you will never conquer feudal japan with your favorite katawas
Why even live?
Still always bummed she was a woefully minor character. *sigh* Always a Rin fan myself otherwise.
My nigga, these are my thoughts exactly.
Lilly is objectively waifu status, but my turn on for quiet, shy, timid girls went up like a motherfucker with Hanako. Her interest in chess also helped out with that at the time I read it. I thought i would like Shizune's route a lot more, but it felt sub par. And rin is just... rin.
Would like more VNs with feels like this one gave me, any recommendations?
>and the bully girl from Yume Miru Kusuri
So what have you done with your life since playing KS and getting motivated?
>when life gives you lemons
Russian Katawa Shoujo. aka Everlasting Summer.
It is free on steam and there is a patch from the devs to
Beware it can get kinda
Saya No Uta was the most fucked up shit I've ever seen or played, and I've seen a lot of fucked up shit.
Always like the bro level girls, I don't know why.
I never played the VN, but Emi helped me get in shape.
Currently finished week 3 of 10k training
Try Swan Song. I found it much more fucked up than Saya no Uta. But that is because the monsters in that game are
I hear Kara no Shōjo is supposed to be fucked up also but haven't played/read that yet.
>Babies first VN
What's the most fucked up VN ever, then?
>Kara no Shōjo
I have it in the backlog but I'm scared to start. I know it will scar me for a while and I'll probably be depressed for about a week after going through one route.
I couldn' get into Swan Song though. Got as far when they were
starting to try and find another town, after shit was getting terrible in the shelter. For whatever reason it bored me.
When I finished reading it, I tried my hardest to get something out of it. I drank more tea, tried out sign language, did all of >>323270675 this chart, and eating bacon. Nothing became a habit, so I just dropped everything.
I just wanted to change like how a lot of others did after playing it
I dated a girl with no feet actually, lasted about 3 months. Shit was cash, but she was super cold and kind of a whore. If I didn't play Katawa I probably wouldn't have gone for it.
>>Tfw not like Emi
>mfw life is much better since first time reading KS
>played Katawa Shojo
>felt so many feels
>Rin touched me on such an unreachable level
>join a shitposting community on /b/
>become a namefagging regular
>never even posted on 4chan
>threads lasted 4 or so months while was there
>mods deleted all threads
From time to time I still think about KS, and the feelongs rush back. I can't even listen to any of the OST without getting emotional
Seriously? I may have to give it another go. I think I ave my saves backed up.
I got a bad ending where that autist
stays with the "priestess" and she fucks him silly all the time.
Also got another event where
the angsty nerd rapes the autist's wannabe girlfriendbut I redid the choice because I couldn't really bear with doing that.
Amputated on her left foot and below her right knee, racially Thai but culturally American. 90 lbs. I knew her before her accident happened.
>>Fun and all, but I want to find a grill like Lilly, sophisticated, kind, and thoughtful.
No man. You can't get real, fulfilling, self actualization and life changes out of this shit. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed KS, and I enjoy VN's, but it's because I understand what they give me and they're strictly entertainment.
Seeking to change your life over a virtual girl, hell even a real one, is completely the wrong way to go about things. Those factors are external, you have to change internally, for yourself. Why do YOU want X or Y? How does it benefit you personally, apart from external validation? Real change won't happen if the desire doesn't come from this place.
You ever see those /fit/ threads where dudes got super swole just to try to pick up girls, but still have problems, and still feel like losers? It's because they got jacked for an external reason. They didn't do it for health reasons, or to challenge themselves, or to see the beauty of the human form, they did it for an external yearning and it goes unfulfilled because there was no self actualization.
I don't think it's about the girl per se, it's about the emotional journey you go on, find qualities you didn't even know you liked in something or someone. I've gotten a lot out of VN or any forms of media that make me think on a deeper level. Not just trying to bang virtual disabled girls, we all came for that, and stayed and cried bitch man tears about how the story rollercoastered.
Intestine got infected, exploded, gangrene developed because of it ... thus amputation. I liked her a lot in HS, but dating her was bad. I like confessed I liked her when she woke up from a coma when that all was happening, I didn't know if she was going to live or not. So the disabled thing was irrelevant. KS treats this paradigm so tastefully having gone through it I must say.
>implying motivation can't be kickstarted externally to get interalized
Brosef we had a chill thread going. In fact, you're wrong from even a scientific stand point as external sources are almost always the attributing factor to change. Chill with the judgmental 'tude you jive turkey. First time I've seen a KS/VN thread last this long without terrible shitposting and I'm enjoying it.
>Intestine got infected, exploded, gangrene developed because of it ... thus amputation
Hoe do your intestines get infected?
How does that effect your feet?
Did you get to fuck her?
Share something with us.
Oh don't get me wrong, I don't doubt a VN or for that matter any fictional medium can't awaken or make you aware of something that you didn't notice before. I absolutely think KS could have opened some anon's eyes to their lives and begin the journey of looking inward.
I'm just saying using it as a direct motivation is a fundamentally flawed idea and young men especially are prone to attaching such high value to females in general that it becomes sabotage on their way to self actualizing.
And yes I'm aware that scientifically external factors lead to change, I'm quite familiar with adaptation, but self actualization is not adaptation.
Played Lily and Emi route.
liked both, but Katawa Shoujo is not the holy grail of visual novels /v/ claims it to be.
There's barely any choices or branching routes in the stories anyway.
Look pal,i 'aint talking shit 'bout you are waifu,so why do you talk shit 'bout mine?
KS is a fucking garbage tier waifu shit game for entry level faggots that want "muh feels". VNs are generally shit that fall into the same bad tropes but KS is one of the worst offenders.
>have no arms
>have no life
>the only people who will fuck me are sick freaks
Such is is life.
Didn't get a stumpjob kek, we did have to remove the titanium prosthetic during sex though, have you ever hit your knee really hard on one? Fucking hurts.
>>> Had previous problems with one of her intentions prior to it rupturing *she wore a colo bag on her stomach* it tainted her blood and they had to remove her feet or she would've died, almost her hands too but they saved her.
I still wonder how she's doing, it was a few years ago.
I stopped playing VNs altogether because I would get so attached to the characters and would never want the adventure/story to end. I couldn't keep doing that to myself.
>Implying that somehow makes her less bro level awesome.
The MC hardly belongs there, less so than her, so pffft, objection overruled.
Whelp, was only a matter of time. Thanks for the enlightened wisdom.
>Got a GF around time of original release.
>Was a weird mix of Lilly's grace, Shizune's determination, and Emi's genkiness
and lost parent PTSD.
>Break up two years later
>Get depressed, drop out of college.
>Spent a year as a NEET.
>Finally working on getting my life around.
>Got a job about a year ago. Gonna start the process to enlist soon.
We're all gonna make it brahs.
Posting Kenji cause fuck this blogshit.
The old 09 CYOA Yamakuman archives are gone forever aren't they ;_;7?
So do people actually get attached to these characters and care for them in some way? I mean I know that I'm jaded as fuck about most things but I find it difficult to like characters in any VN. What do you guys like about them?
Does anyone has a link for the "Dangerous" manga that 4LS released at last year's comiket?
They're hopeless autists in the real world and can self insert into the character and trick themselves into thinking anyone or anything would ever feel love for them. On top of that, the girls are disfigured which makes their autistic fantasies a little more believable since they could never get with a normal girl
>that feeling of loss after finishing a good story
I miss you Leto II. But I know that a pearl of your awareness is locked forever in an endless dream inside the sandworms. May we walk forever on the golden path.
No, she had a whole slew of medical problems her whole life ... poor thing. Even if I'm a little bitter over the break up I don't want her hurt or anything it sucks she has to handle all that shit day to day.
I'd rather not have /v/ look her up, lol. She was pretty though, had a chest and back piece tattoos. We're both 23, went to highschool together, it happened right out of HS.
I fucking love how Rewrite handled choices in some scenes
And all those people that tear up over Walking Dead or GoT deaths are normal by comparison? Seriously happy the thread lasted as long as it did before the shitposter squad arrived.
Don't do this to me anon, I had moved past this turmoil.
Misha>= Hanako > Lilly >= Emi > Shit-zune
I hate it when girls act tsundere or act tough/condescending/pouty/angry. It's an immediate disqualifier for best girl. Emi would be Lilly tier if she had better control over her emotions.
>Being this delusional
Go ahead and cry to your disfigured 2D girlfriends
I wouldn't call someone abnormal for feeling something from a game. I am actually very envious of people that can feel something from games these days.
I was genuinely curious as to why people like them and form attachments.
Will do;thanks.Now you're free to leave.
Reminder that that number is after a reset, so the actual amount of threads is around double that.
And there's literally nothing left to talk about at this point. It's pretty much just a free for all chat now. You would think that for as long as the generals have been running they would have at least tried to cobble together an attempt at making a fan sequel even if it would have ended horribly.
This is why /vg/ for static games is a mistake
You can't expect an established community to suddenly dry up after talking about something for so long , they're going to start doing other shit
Sure will, though I didn't need your permission Cap'n Jack. You keep on getting your kek's trying to rustle my jimmies then. Pro-tip: look up the definition of delusion.
Fair enough. I just like good stories, and don't really give any shits if I find emotional attachment to fiction. Decent sense of imagination helps. /shrug
Senpai, you're stinging me deep tonight.
wanted to talk about VN and Katawa grills, doesn't seem like a static thing to me. Rin's good ending thoooooooooooooooooo, How many of you tried your hand at art after her path?
>tfw no Misha route
Dropped that shit hard when I found out about that
>Fucks given = zer0
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Still my favorite. The whole last portion of her route is both wonderful and tense at the same time.
That would mean I would have to play through Shizune route
>no Dune VN
>no Harkonnen slave girl route
>no bene gesserit route
>no fish speaker route
>no fremen route
>no stud to Atreides route
>all the routes are actually
Leto II's internal lives
Why even live?
The mixture of the visuals and music gave a really melancholy and comforting atmosphere a lot of the time.
That aside, a few routes have some really engaging writing (mainly Rin and Lily) where as others are fairly dull.
Also the art for characters is sometimes pretty fucked, definitely not a strong point.
Though, in the end it kept me interested enough to read a majority of the routes and feel real emotions for the characters.
i ended up introducing some of my friends to KS and they all ended up being hanabitches and i was the lone correct one, felt bad but at least i felt the feels brah, Rin a best.
>no spice tank swimming Navigator route
>no yandere Alia route
>no Thinking Machine's test subject route
WHY IS THIS NOT A THING YET!
>try to talk to anyone about books
>nobody reads books
>nobody to talk to about books
>lady at works reads books
>ask her her favorite genres
>mysteries and "vampire"
>ask her if she has read I am Legend
>Let Me in?
nobody to talk to about books
Let me In I can understand but if you like vampires how the fuck can you not have read I Am Legend?
Alia was my first Waifu when I read the first three dune books as a teenager.
>what she became
>I couldn't save her
Feels bad man.
How about nahhhhh. Surprising amount of relevant discussion here, not so much there. Plus the topic was broad, not specific.
That universe is too ripe for it's own good not to have ever got a good game out of it, VN or not. All we got were the mediocrity that is the squeals/prequels.
>That universe is too ripe for it's own good not to have ever got a good game out of it
>he doesn't know the Dune games invented the RTS genre
Time to boot up DOSBox anon.
Should have qualified by saying story driven. I admit my incorrect slander, those RTS' were great. I wish Westwood was ever given the chance to take those further.
Still, now I'll always be haunted at never getting a Dune VN.
Why don't you make one?
have Brian Herbert write it.
have Brian Herbert write it.
It is way too late at night for that level of sick twisted humor anon.
>only one peice of Alia R34
At least it isn't bad.
Got my first girlfriend a month after playing Katawa Shoujo.
We've been together for 2 years now.
Traveled a bit.
Got a 60k/yr starting job.
Life's not bad. Don't even want a GF anymore.
