the point is the same though
I really don't think they're that similar in look but it may just be me.
On topic talk time.
There's a VN which I've read about 3 times so far which I think would be a nice step for those starting with Katawa Shoujo or wanting something somewhat like it.
It's not bad, according to the ratings it's mediocre, but for some reason I personally loved it.
Oh god I'm in love with Steins;gate's art style.
Holy shit Saya no Uta is amazing, even the porn scenes had a purpose at the end of the story.
I need to play Steins;gate, loved the anime.
Is there a good english patch for Steins;Gate? Or do I have to learn japanese to play it?
There is an official translation for Steins;gate being made, it's going to be released on JAST.
Should be done within a month or 2, maybe 3.
I'm sad I want to play Higurashi but I know all of the story so that ain't happening
So I shall play Umineko when I get around to d/ling it.
I just finished Saya no Uta. Even though it had a lot of flaws, it was the most fascinating thing I have read in a long time.
Playing Saya no Uta.
I get BAD vibes from Saya. I just started and I know she is going to turn out to be something horrible.
Finished Fate/Stay Night
Shouldn't have played it in the first place, I feel like shit right now
Saya no Uta is weirdly compelling
This game is full of fucking rainbows, flowers, and jellybeans ain't it.
Gotta find this thing now.
Oh nope, nope nope.
I still get freaked out from the cannibal scenes in FEAR .
I think Ill just avoid Saya no Uta forever.
I can't handle bittersweet endings, and Fate/Stay Night only has bittersweet to bad endings
If I knew beforehand I would have quit halfway through
Oh my god, the Saya No Uta website is so misleading it made me shit a brick.
With all the white and no assumption of bad things.
Made even funnier by the fact that the main character becomes more akin to a highly mutated Khorne Beserker by the end of the damn thing
Shit, some mod uses or used a CG from this game as an avatar, can't remember who though.
Actually reminds me that I should read through F/SN again.
I decided to try out SWAN SONG because I somewhat like post-apocalyptic stories. However I have some qualms about the way the dialog is set up in the VN. Some of the time the dialog is layed out decently, but most of the time it's something horrendous like:
As a side-effect of translating, it gets expanded far more than it should and sometimes wraps around onto a new bubble (or even off of the dialog box itself).
The writing thus far has been pretty good, and it's reminiscent of Lord of the Flies in a lot of ways. The story is told from the perspectives of 5 of the main characters, switching between them every once in a while, experiencing what they experience as well as reading what they're thinking.
Although this hasn't been mentioned in the thread so far, it is in that VN compilation image towards the bottom of the OP. I may as well explain what it's about; trying not to spoil anything:
The story starts on Christmas Eve, where a college student named Tsukasa is taking a walk to get some Hot Cocoa from a nearby vending machine. Shortly after he get's his warm beverage, an earthquake hits that eventually causes him to lose consciousness. When he wakes up he finds himself engulfed in a blizzard with very low visibility, and now has to make his way out of this blizzard. On his way to there school (a pre-designated emergency shelter), he hears a faint cry for help.
There's also a small explanation with odd grammar in that VN image.
(Just a word of warning: rape, merciless slaughter, and plenty of gruesome acts happen throughout the story. As there is little form of law or order, along with typical inter-communal conflicts, people who have experienced catastrophic events become mentally unstable the longer time goes on. It doesn't necessarily feel out of place in context to the story. When people lose hope that they'll ever be saved, their wills and act primarily on instinct and desire. This is definitely not something to read if you're disturbed of what might happen if the apocalypse does come about.)
I'm a giant fucking pussy who gets depressed unless the ending is all sunshine and rainbows
And in Unlimited Blade Works you can't get with Saber, but I guess it's better than her going back in time to die
And Lancer's a real bro
I forfeit my penis for I am not manly enough to deserve one
