Nekopara Vol.1 score on Steam
>Better score than Fallout 4
Will Vol. 2 be the same in quality or even better?
Reposting in the real(TM) thread.
The game follows Neon's perspective 90% of the time, with misc. other characters and Tesla divvying up the rest.
This isn't a negative in and of itself, considering it's the only way the narrative would work since she's mindfucked from every direction (not really a spoiler since it's talked about in the first chapter).
Honestly, I liked it. Character dynamics were good, the plot was solid, symbolism/metaphors were solid, atmosphere was fantastic as per usual for liar-soft and there was some decently sophisticated writing in there. Music was average and could have used more tracks, but such is life for Liar-soft games.
Definitely worth your time.
Yeah. She's in the first one, just right before you finish the game. I think you get her after you conquer everything except for the Illusion Continent the second time.
She's really weird. She never speaks, only ever says "..." and maybe *blush* or something, because she doesn't have a voice actress, so all of the scenes with her have Lancelot around because they're both the heavy eater archetype, and Lanny translates for her. She also has 0 interest in the protag, because she already has someone she loves.
There are a couple the russians restored, although they're untranslated. There are also some pretty lewd scenes but not explicit so they got through. Most of them got "Let's give him a massage!" or whatever though.
That looks scary. Don't girls find being pinned down like that to be horrifying, even if they like them? Think about it - he's twice your size, you can't escape - you can't even move, and he's ready and willing to violate your virgin pussy at the drop of a hat, with a rod long enough to extend to your waist, something that by no means should fit within your walls, but will, whether you like it or not.
Scaaaaaaaary. Boys are scary.
There are a few.
I counted two for Nobunaga and Himiko. And one each for Columbus, Geronimo, Kamehameha, Sanzou, Montezuma, and Ivan.
I just transfer my save files to a nip version and view the gallery from there.
they were playing tag after a picnic
next they're going to make memories
2016 is looking like a good year for us.
>Grisaia no Meikyuu (Labyrinth of Grisaia)
life is looking so fine
>2016 is looking like a good year for us.
Look at this ugly face. It's extremely hard to make myself play a game with someone so ugly in it
Makoto 2.0 is pretty cute even has the same voice.
I am translating you're favourite anime.
She's smug incarnate. Her catchphrase is Nihihihi for fucks sake.
It's not Jan. 4th, but April 1st. It's when Hoshizora was released.
Dracu-Riot also has some kawaii as fuck chibis as well.
I really love the chibi cgs that Yuzusoft cranks out.
I was quite fond of the IMHHW chibis myself
Fuck i have to go to class in like 3 hours but Senas route is looking too fine, do i sleep or continue?
no point sleeping for only 3 hours due to that REM sleep shit
take a power nap when you feel sleepy, then take another one in ~8 hours after waking up, then resume your normal sleep schedule
if you're even less content this year is coming soon
i always dream of michiru-sama
michiru-sama is best grisaia
see it even rhymes! thats how you know its fact.
they were all good except for the rich-girl stories (yumiko and makina)
Lolis are meant to be protected!
not for loving!
We protect the lolis, we protect the imoutos!
except certain ones, but those are special
quick google search shows that its from an Animu called Charlotte. Ive never seen it, i probably wont but i would like to. it pains me to know i will never slip it into a waifu.
I was really looking forward to Gahkthun, but to be honest I'm not that impressed. Mainly has to do with Neon's VA as it kicks me out hearing Yumiko trying to play timid schoolgirl, although that's a fault of my own rather than of the game.
It described the Dropout District as the same as the first time.
When Tesla transforms or whatever it's literally the same text again and again.
Even the guy with the suit that wanted to blow up the Engine thing. It's literally the same fucking text.
Hmmm, yeah sure, how much is it like 45?
i can get Gahkthun this month and Nekopara next. See im a student and money isn't something i have too much of. but i can spare 45 dollars.
nah im actually gonna buy Vol. 2
I pirated Vol. 0 and Vol. 1 but i wanna support NekoWorks so bought both Volumes. I like what they are doing so i may as well support them you know?
It needs to get good sales so that Vol.3 comes out soon after and i get muh Maple and Cinnamon Volume. Why volume 2 isn't about them i will never know
Lolis maybe, but imoutos? never~! say no to imoutos.
Its probably because my little sister is a little shit and she wont be having a crush on onii-chan anytime soon that i have an aversion to imoutos.
I know this was written in 2011 and all, but why are nips so obsessed with infrared and talk about it like it's the most advanced thing ever?
Haven't they switched to bluetooth yet?
Yumiko is so goddamn cute, I felt violated when I realised the seiyuu who voices her was also the futa in Starless.
I'm still waiting second Grisaia for my favorite seiyuu.
Don't worry sekai is basically done at like ~96%
although it is sekai project doing it, it beats nothing right?
Is Yumiko's route that bad?
Should I just go for the slut route instead?
So i just got past the conversation with Akari about Sena's issue.
She gets sick because the relatives that cared for her since she lost her actual parents show interest in her well being?Or did I misunderstand something?
Reminder, if you think this line is even remotely difficult then you've never read a light novel, much less an actual book. I'm just not a beginner from DJT like you guys are. Lines like that are incredibly common in any sort of fantasy fiction. You're either new to Japanese or just read moege all the time.
it's pretty much their best game though, himegari before it was basically the same thing but improved upon for kamidori and the card game after that kinda sucked, the best part about it was really the SMT vibe. and madou after that was better story-wise than gameplay-wise. not sure about their newer games but i remember someone on EGS saying most of their newer games were shit.
it feels like that applies to alot of their titles though. i wish they came out with spiritual successors more often since they're pretty good at improving stuff.
that game has a 65 EGS score, which is pretty terrible for a company like eushully and literally tied for their lowest score.
you're probably the only one who enjoyed it.
Got you covered mate.
Both I think.
Remember to buy the official English release of Subahibi!
English VN versions have better prose and there's more English media than Japanese. JOPs have worse English than elementary school kids and smell pretty bad too.
Here >>127444506 we have an example of a JOP unable to tame the English language, thus making a very silly mistake.
Scenes where girls confront and accept their love are great. It's like vanila mindbreak.
Haven't you ever been walking down a hallway and upon seeing a cutie thought "I'm in love with that gal"? Where's your sense of youthful romance, what about love at first sight?
I'm reading noble works very erratically as I'm currently hooked on other games but it's a very fun VN unlike Koichoco which I recently finished.
Koichoco was just so bad.
I could accept the story being awful in a game like that if the characters were funny or interesting but I'd say the characters were even more boring than the god-awful plot.
I have a very hard time understanding the interest of the visual novels that have very little interaction, if any at all. As a bonus you get some sound effects, some music and some illustrations, but sadly you also get the most annoying text delivery method known to man. The main problem is not there though, it’s that it puts these visual novels in direct competition with another medium called literature and that’s a battle that simply cannot be won.
The other day, I played about an hour of a very positively reviewed visual novel I bought on Steam called World End Economica... and then I asked myself: Why? Every minute I am reading this lame thing is a minute I am not reading The Windup Girl or Paradise Lost (the two books I am reading at the moment). And that’s from someone who played verbose games like all the Ace Attorney games, Hotel Dusk and Last Window without for second feeling like I was wasting my time.
>only written works that I personally approve of deserve to be called literature
Clearly the word "often" here, as opposed to a stronger word such as "always" indicates that it is also often NOT restricted to those works.
Besides, who often restricts it as such? I've seen technical manuals referred to as literature before for Christ's sake, that Wikipedia editor is clearly misinformed!
>Its Latin root literatura/litteratura (derived itself from littera, letter or handwriting) was used to refer to all written accounts, but intertwined with the roman concept of cultura: learning or cultivation.
If it has some kind of teaching it can be literature. YA is nothing more than mental masturbation with no literary merit whatsoever.
Eiyuu Senki is one of those games with hentai that you end up not giving a shit about the hentai part and just wanna enjoy the gameplay.
Seriously, its so good!
I have played for at least 5 hours and have yet to watch a sex scene.
And there are so many good girls in the game I cant even say which one is my favorite.
Even Lancelot that I thought was annoying at first grew on me and now I use her as a my second main frontline leader.
Also had some weird dream where I fingered her while helping her taking a shit after all the food she ate...

It is. The story isn't that great, same with Rance, however Rance had a shit ton of endings.
The replay value of it his higher than ES. The guy just clearly hasn't played a lot of those types of games so he's probably rating it highly.
I didnt say the gameplay is better than Sengoku Rance, but its still pretty fun.
Dunno about the story, its not like you play those games for the story. Rance plot is just as bad too.
I've been paying close attention as to how the narrative of VNs warp and shift in order to ensure the heroines only fall in love with the protagonist rather than the male friend, and upon doing so I've noticed some truly terrifying things. Namely, the male friend always seems to decline to participate in nakayoku events; for example, he declines to show girls around town, or he declines to sit with girls at lunch (leaving MC to do so alone), etc etc. Furthermore, despite being an overall good guy, the male friend often lets fear and anxiety take him over so when he does interact with the girls it usually ends with them getting a poor impression of him.
In short, male friends never get any girls because the narrative forces them to be introverted. Their introversion prevents them from spending time with girls and from developing a positive, romantic relationship...
just like you.
Unrelated but someone help a retard out.
I accidentally drag and dropped a file somewhere, it looked like I dropped it into my torrent program but I can't find it anywhere. I used "Search Everything" to find it but no luck. In my torrent program it looks like I'm still seeding it for some reason though. When I try to click on the torrent it just brings me to the Download folder where it isn't.
How the fuck do I find it
Not really up for talking right now, just got NTR'd by a 30 ton AI mobile combat robot
So I finally went and read Inganock after reading Gakthun, and I liked Inganock a lot more. Is Sharnoth going to be more like Inganock and less like Gakthun? I'm a bit wary about going back to a female protag after how much I didn't like Neon.
>Dies Irae, the inferior Demonbane
>Subahibi, or Sca-Ji's most polished turd
>Cross Channel, Romeo's shittiest work
>no mention of Asairo, disregard for Shuumon Yuu
>no mention of Kikokugai, almost certainly because it has a translation
So much shit taste.
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (the original novels) are better than CC and Saihate no Ima anyway.
>Normalfags like this are now commonplace on 4chan
Other stuff in my backlog, like Big Bang Age or Grisaia.
Alright, I guess I'll read it next.
Is Sharnoth really that bad? It looked like it has some 'gameplay' so it's also in my backlog.
>go to hadler
Yes exactly. Wise wise
Just for you I went and fixed a years-old image.
>there are people who weren't even there during the KS release
Not everyone cared about that shit
I usually don't use the site when big events occur, like Code Geass last episode, when moot changed /a/'s layout and filled it with naruto bullshit, etc
I liked Sharnoth the most of the three we have. Mary is great. She's less retarded than Neon and actually has something resembling a spine. She also actually feels like an important character, unlike Neon.
This fucking game is making me want to go to a tropical beach resort again
If only I wasn't desperately saving every possible penny for
Once Our Lord and Savior Nikola Tesla starts de-brainwashing her out of the second-class student mindset and encouraging her to speak her mind and fight for what she believes in, never acquiescing.
>otome poster is actually a stealth JOP intent on disrupting the flow of translated VN discussion and derailing ontopic conversations
What do you expect from angry teenagers? They're going to be negative and hostile over everything. Just thank your stars they're too immature and stupid to learn Japanese. God bless Moogy.
Nah wasn't really referring to that, your posts were ok. Nothing wrong with specific and reasonable criticisms against stuff, just don't like the more general "you're shit, I'm shit, everything is shit" posts that we get.
Reminder Gahkthun is in fact otome as decreed by moogy. Please take the discussion for it to the appropriate general
>"what is this guy 16?"
Woah man. You must be like a whole 17 years old or something. I really respect that you've lived maybe a year or so longer than the people you irrationally dislike. Like when I was 16, I was always like "ugh what is this guy like 15 or something? Sooo last year". Just being slightly older made me feel so good about myself, my thoughts and opinions, everything about me was superior.
It was for the first 4 hours. Now it's just annoying.
>Also having thoughts as voiced whisper is a pretty genius idea.
They could have done better. For example when she was about to get killed her inner monologue was calm while on the outside she wasn't. It kind of ruined the scene.
She was panicking on the outside then her voice was calm, then she was panicking again. I didn't like it.
How can someone dislike celery? It's fucking delicious. It can work with almost any type of dish.
It's kind of like having a tulpa, but in reverse.
Nope. I've been in plenty of panic-inducing moments where almost everyone freaked out, while I was completely levelheaded. Why would you pretend?
I can relate a lot to Soutarou, the way he acts in the face of troublesome developments.
That has earned me a reputation of being reliable, which isn't a bad thing. Just fucking be yourself, m8.
Your post is confusing.
What is this "this" Umi pasta?
If you mean the cock one that I edited and spammed then it's in one of the earlier threads, I can't be bothered to find it.
This pasta. This pasta.
This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta. This pasta.
You'll hear a lot of nerds come in here and defend Umi's slutty past in high school. They'll tell you "she had to do it" for food, water, resources, protection...
The truth, and this will be revealed in the next two VNs, is that Umi NEEDS cock. All sorts of cock: old man cock, man cock, futanari cock, shota cock, small phimosis cock, cock of all kinds. Umi needs them in her pussy and in her pink little asshole because she's depraved.
In her training with Nagisa on the magical island, we're going to hear all about what she did in high school. Glory holes, Yakuza runnin' trains on her by the midnight fireside, Samurai probing her ass with metal instruments, even horses bustin' fat gallon-sized nuts on her pert little body.
She is a whore. Pink panties side, frilly panties side... Who cares? She's on the cock side. And that's why I love her.
is all this /blog/ posting because /vn/ kept telling people to go there or is this unrelated?
its not a spoiler because its
on the fandisc that will never get TLd
Spoilers: you marry the girl you date in a moege
wow what a tweest
