Probably because of crippling loneliness!
Or just because I like that, no idea really
Make way fuckers real waifu coming through
You made it weird!
pretty much. i feel like i'm wasting time at university and that i probably won't be able to find a job once i finish. even then, the idea of working some shitty job for the rest of my life sounds so awful.
.jpg compresses the image, which leads to a quality loss. The size of the file is small though.
.png always saves the original, which leads to better quality but bigger files. Perfect for wallpapers.
You seem to have shit taste. Maybe you should go for Hanako instead.
Png it is then.
Even if sometimes they get fucked up if you don't put a background color
Hisao really acted like a mega autist in that route (moreso than he usually is). For whatever reason I got no dialogue options in the dinner at Emi's house scene and I was cringing at everything he had to say
Thats wrong, theyre different ways of predicting what the next pixels will be. Jpeg is goos with randomness ie. real pictures, and png is good when theres a lot of identical ones, as with digital art. Either will give bad results if used wrongly.
Of course you can combat this by upping the save quality, at the cost of filesize, but the other method would be able to save at 1/10th of that space.
Talk me out of it, /ksg/
it doesn't have hanako in it
I can't, that seems like a great thing to buy.
Id say go for it, its pretty cheap at the moment and it looks nice.
Is canned tea a real thing somewhere?
This game made me suffer so much that I actually got the inspiration to continue my creative work.
It feels like I lost 10 out of 13 men from my squad and I have to radio it in
Whose route made you suffer the most? Was it Rin?
Hello, /ksg/. It's me, again, though I don't expect you to remember me. After all, you are the kind of person who simply has no interest in others, be it because of hurt, bitterness or a sickening sense of narcissism, disguised as sadness or even love.
You heard me. Even love.
I'll be honest with you, /ksg/, as I've always been.
You don't love 'her'. You don't love your waifu, you don't love her for who she is, you don't even love her for what she supposedly means to you.
You love yourself. Yes, you love yourself so damn much that you're willing to poison yourself in loneliness, choosing to stay away from other people 'who don't deserve you' in order to save yourself for a girl who is perfect enough to 'deserve you', even though you know perfectly well she doesn't exist, and not just in the way you're thinking of right now.
You sicken me, /ksg/. You've fallen in love with your own reflection in the water, probably broke the heart of a nymph or two on the way, and you're waiting near that puddle of water.
Waiting for the day when you simply can't bear this loneliness you've buried yourself under any longer and you decide to end it all and finally be together with the only person who has never stopped caring for you.
How much longer do you think you can keep this up, /ksg/? How much longer until you grow in the flower you've had in you since the beginning but never wanted to become?
You should think about that, /ksg/.
>u are the kind of person who simply has no interest in others
>narcissism, disguised as sadness
>You don't love your waifu
>choosing to stay away from other people 'who don't deserve you' in order to save yourself for a girl who is perfect enough to 'deserve you'
I don't think you understand the concept of having a waifu
>even though you know perfectly well she doesn't exist, and not just in the way you're thinking of right now.
that's the whole point
But this is wrong anon. I dont stay away from other people, nobody has never just wanted to get close to me. I dont have anyone to finally be together with since i have nobody who has never stopped caring for me.I do love my waifu for she is one of the few things which i truly can love.
And i do remember you anon, for i also love you for never leaving me.
But Rin, Christmas is over, why are you wearing that?
Every fucking time.
It's nice of you to say so, friend. The fact that you care about a cynical asshole like me makes you a person worth getting close to, even if I'm the only person on earth who'd think that.
mfw realizing that I will probably never be loved by a girl like Lilly
You feel it too, don't you, Lillybro?
No pics of Lilly dressed as Kaz or Ocelot yet...damn it.
We're all gonna make it, remember?
Try to look for someone who would study theory with you. It's always easier this way, and you might befriend someone nice.
That's actually quite impressive, I'm kind of jealous.
Off to bed. Worky work tomorrow.
Goodnight /ksg/, stay beautiful. Have a drilly, soft, huggy night.
>shit tier katawa
>shit tier timezone
Never change, /ksg/
>You will never take a nap with suzu
>you will never tell her a bedtime story
>you will never take advantage of her while she is asleep
Hey, bros, how is everyone?
I've been out for the last days, so hopefully I didn't miss anything.
I'm okay, browsing the net and watching Stargate. How are you?
Didn't really miss anything as you thought.
Nothing wrong with having "fun"
I'm also okay, just got home and now I'm "working" a bit.
Also trying to understand some strange stuff that has been happening with me, so there's that.
I don't want to live as an adult. Fucking responsabilities and getting a job and actively doing stuff. Fuck, I just want to stay at my bed.
How are you in this fine night? Who's your favourite cripple?
scared that i won't be able to fall asleep tonight and will sleep in for an exam.
Also what >>128161058 said
How are You?
>I don't want to live as an adult.
Surround yourself with people who keep you pushing all the time. It'll be annoying at first, but soon enough you'll learn to find the balance between adulthood and enjoying what's left of youth.
The more you resist, the quicker time flies, and one day you're going to wake up almost 30 and still having a hard time functioning as an adult for real. You don't want to be there.
I'm already trying to start something like what you suggested. I'm planning to get a job and leave home to go live alone while I still go to college.
The problem is that the idea of working in a job and keep studying in my university is fucking frightening. I'm used to have a lot of free time, I always had in my entire life, but if I do that, I'll get just a couple of hours per day without including preparing food and keeping the place tidy. Some days I could probably have only minutes of free time. This seems awful, I don't know how people do it. Thanks for the tip, though, I'll try to keep people who can help me close.
A bit tired. Should go to bed soon.
Free time feels way better when you're otherwise occupied. I just spent a month unemployed, and it kind of blows.
A while ago there was a translation effort in Japan.
Considering the japanese translation was released 3 years after the official release, I wouldn't say there is a lot of following. They have a couple of fans, though, I was reading the story of one of the devs who said that at the last Comiket, Weeee was always surrounded by japanese fans or something. I don't know how hard is to get a table in Comiket, but maybe it means something as well.
The problem is that I'm used to having literally more than half of my day as free time. Adapting to almost non existant free time is going to be painful and tiring as fuck.
Hey, Kenjibro, long time since I last saw you! How are you?
Yup! We visited a cat café, went shopping, and had some dinner together. It was a pretty sweet day.
Land of maple syrup and poutine
Always good to have a nice time with friends!
Hey it isn't that bad
Sure is fucking cold though
>it isn't that bad
I'd sooner associate with the Frogs.
Damn, that sounds fun.
I wish I was in Toronto. I also wish I was a friend of yours.
But Suzuanon, you are my friend!
she hates anal
Tabernac, the Anglos know. Shut it down.
>I'd sooner associate with the Frogs.
Seriously though, how about a qt cripples with a french accent?
>But Suzuanon, you are my friend!
Still, I wish I could go to Toronto to hang out with you...
So as a virgin who has no experience with women and their ladybits, what would it smell like if you were to stick your head under your favorite katawa's skirt and use her thighs as a lap pillow?
inb4 bags of sand, salty coins, sour milk, bleach and ammonia, etc.
You should do sometime!
Though, I'm just visiting. I fly home tomorrow, back to boring Britland.
Depends if they're wet or not. Usually nothing, anyway.
Hey, you're in the same situation as me.
I'm just watching Youtube videos.
I wanna do it to Shizune too
At the same time Threesome pls
>wanting to suffocate in Shizunes chest because you watched on Mishas for too long and she got jealous
You're crazy! No man could survive this.
No man can resist being sandwiched between the breasts of the student council.
I thought you preferred another duo to do a threesome with.
I can totally understand you.
Emi Misha or Shizzle in any combo is good
What about all four at once?
I love this pic right here. Shizune's pout, Misha cute as fuck face, cat ears, everything is effing perfect.
It's one of my favourites as well!
But I don't have many Sweater Zune.
I bet she's sweating under that sweater vest.
Sure, she's second best girl after all!
By "those'" are you looking for a specific one/set?
Well yeah of course
I don't know many of them though, just one
I'd say you know them, just not that part.
Yeah, the thread updated just after I made that post.
Shizune solving diplomatic relations with her body!
Now, offer your body to your new emperor
I don't have much Shizune, but I want to contribute.
I haven't been active at all lately.
Well, anyway, good night everyone!
Expect big news in a week or so...
Years after finishing all routes all endings, after reaiding a couple other vns and seeing loads of anime, Rin is still my waifu. I'll probably be an old man and still thinking about her every day. It's kind of scary.
Better go to bed, got my flight tomorrow.
See ya /ksg/!
Tonight has seen another failure, but nevertheless I remain committed in my quest to brew a flavorful cup of tea.
Yeah. Even if she caught me she wouldn't be able to tell what I was sniffing.
Image didn't go through.
Anyway, have your waifu.
Hey, /ksg/. I got into Act two of Lilly's Alpha route, and Hanako invited me to a tea party at Lilly's room. Only issue was, certain lines in the conversation alluded to another tea party that happened before. This was confirmed with the invitation shown here, written by Lilly, using Kenji as the courier. Did I miss something or was there just an unwritten tea party that's not in the alpha?
Alright, I know damn well this is the first time this is happening to me, but now that I arrived at the room, the scene is titled "Bon Voyage"
Like the second tea party before Lilly's visit to Scotland in the final.
Great art comes from pain.
I'm surprised there isn't more KS stuff for this very reason to be honest.
>choosing to stay away from other people 'who don't deserve you' in order to save yourself for a girl who is perfect enough to 'deserve you', even though you know perfectly well she doesn't exist, and not just in the way you're thinking of right now.
Uh, that's how people used to be in relationships. Instead of giving up their virginity to just anyone who shows interest, they saved it for marriage, and they made sure it was the right person. Now people rush in and are too selfish in how they approach the relationship, so the marriages all fall apart. When you go in with the attitude of trying to get something from the other person, rather than seeing how you can give the most to them, and letting it naturally come back to you anyway through reciprocation, you miss the whole point of a relationship and act more like a parasite.
Not having someone to give your love to is pretty common because everyone's cold-hearted and selfish. They gave themselves away too easily to jerkoff Chads who only wanted them for their bodies, and that poisons their view of relationships in general because they never learn and keep doing it. Having some discipline and wisdom would result in better choices and they'd enjoy it more.
Fuck, man. This gave me feels because it's true. Here, have a slice of some of what made this place worth coming to.
Now I think the music ques have screwed up. Three scenes later and it's still playing "To Become One", which I can assure you, probably should not be playing during the Emi/Rin/Lilly/Hanako lunch scene.
no offense but maybe they didn't bother fixing up the music since lilly already has a good final route
if you're sure you're on the most recent version from github, i think github lets you post a comment, so you could mention your issue there
i found a cute artist girl who does stuff kind of like rin
she really loves painting and shit and she is into me
she has arms though which is kind of a turnoff
how do i make sure i don't blow my chances
ill be seeing her tomorrow around 8:00 am
>ill be seeing her tomorrow around 8:00 am
On a date? That's pretty early.
I wouldn't tell her about your amputee fetish just yet.
And don't forget to
Ask her if she'd cut her arms up for you.
So to follow up with the relatively minor bugs with the alpha Lilly route, Lilly and Hisao were talking about her seventeenth birthday, and shit just got Lewd in Hisao's mind...
what are you talking about?
you have the greatest country in the world at your back
With one of the greatest officers said country has produced, protecting it and fighting for it from the skies.
Just join up with Uncle Curtis in the Air Force, Son! Bomb the enemies of our nation back to the fuckin' stone age!
I'm sorry Mr. President, I'm just not a fighter; I don't have it in me.
I've studied psychology, though. Maybe I could get a job helping returning veterans reintegrate into society, or something.
Well, that sounds good enough for me. God knows the bullshit our boys had to deal with in 'Nam, thanks to my predecessor's idiocy.
you shut your whore mouth
johnson was a man's man, i've always said he was one of the three greatest politicians of all time
I've wanted to help people feel the love again ever since
No one else can fix you, that kind of thing can only come from yourself, but that doesn't mean it's something that you have to go through alone. Sometimes people can help just by being there and being willing to listen.
Is it weird that I love the writing for Mutou in Lilly's Alpha? He tried reading about existentialism when he was younger, and found nothing. He found his true self in explosions. Fucking brilliant.
I still can't wrap my head around this. It's too much.
David Bowie is FUCKING DEAD, /ksg/. Only days after releasing a new album on his birthday.
What a hero, to spend his last living months working on an amazing new record as his gift to the world. Jesus fuck. I can't deal with this shit.
There was DLC that added 3 new routes, a patch that fixed some of the bad parts in some routes, and they are now working on KS 2, which currently is in alpha stage.
Just kidding THERE'S FUCKING NOTHING
I know the feel. I mean, who's next? Paul McCartney? Mic Jagger (Seriously though, how the fuck is he still kicking?)
Wait, when did Stewart die?
Fuckin' Christ people, they're just dropping like flies, aren't they?
Nothing much, just playing Lilly's alpha. Every time something funny or just goddamn strange, something else comes up a few minutes after that trumps it. The writing is just funny as hell.
This is a solid example.
Also, David Bowie sold the world and died.
Imagine his goddamn willpower. Imagine his dedication to his art, to know you have the news of a terminal illness and spend all of it fighting through to make what is probably one of his best albums ever.
Then to die TWO DAYS after its release? As if, like, "No, not yet, it's nearly out." And the fact he held on to celebrate his 69th birthday with his friends and family.
I'm crying for real KSG. I really loved him.
it's okay Anon, he will live on in our heart
>Mic Jagger (Seriously though, how the fuck is he still kicking?)
DUDE DRUGS LMAO
Honestly, drugs and alcohol preserved him.
Worky work, reading book, the news of Bowie dying struck me while driving to work.
>That feel when you will never taste the french vanilla flavor of Lilly's lips
>That feel when you will never give a sleeping Emi a piggyback ride home
>That feel when you will never feel Rin's lips caress your hands as you feed her oranges
>That feel when you will never gaze at the stars with Shizune
>That feel when you will never wake up next to Hanako and take her into a loving embrace
>That feel when you will never feel a sleeping Misha press her soft body against you as you kiss her candy scented hair
And with that, the annual KS anniversary replay is completed. Since it happens just a few days into the New Year, I like to use it as a time to reflect on everything and think ahead to the rest of the year, but damn, it hasn't hit me this hard since the very first time.
I am very thankful that these threads are still around and I still have you wonderful people to share them with
and to blogpost at.You all mean a lot to me.
