>Tsukuyomi's romance goes from 0 to 100 way too fast. Hell, her character was barely there, pretty much every other heroine was more prominent and I almost thought I was on Mao's route at some points. What's up with this? Rain's route definitely wasn't the most exciting of Skys by a long shot, but at least she had the lion's share of screentime and got development in it.
Pretty much. Rain's route in BS was kind of bad, but still a lot better. Quite an irony that I find Freya a much memorable character than Tsukuyomi.

I liked her a lot more after the first half of Nagi's route, but they couldn't have realistically put that stuff so early into the game. Ideally, I think they should have had a 5th character to start it off with and then have Tsukuyomi's be second to last to be able to make full use of her, but it probably wouldn't have worked out as well as I might hope.

Not really sure about that though. Makoto basically went yolo and an hero himself along with original. At least he got to bang Hotaru in wedding dress. I'd say pic related part was nicely done too. If only a tad bid too cliche at the end. Still wish Makoto got a hugging scene with original that didn't end up in tragedy though. The hair combing scene is nice but I want more.
>more moving too
I partially agreed with that, simply because 2 people poof'd without anyone else apart from Hotaru knowing Makoto's fate.

VNDB has no real standard per se as too many people change it. So you have very wrong numbers.. in both directions. If I change things there, I go with scriptsize as that's the most "correct" way of doing things. Going with their general guide outlines and something somewhat fitting, 1kb sjis is roughly a minute. So for example 1.8mb to 3mb would be 30-50 hours.

I have no idea where Amatsutsumi falls into. Based on their pevious games it could be anything. Chrono Clock was ~1.5mb or something, while Hapymaher was a good chunk above 2mb unique text. Keep in mind that vndb numbers are in theory for "everything" of a game. Skipping certain (side-)routes, skipping through ero-scenes.. stuff like that will make things faster obviously. Which is also one of the bigger reasons, why EGS has unreliable numbers.

Was it? Seemed fairly short to me.

Oh yes. That said, you finding it short seems weird, given that its writing style and such should make it feel even longer. Though I guess if you look at it after a few years, it may have the opposite effect. Once you forget how it was written and just consider "what happened", it doesn't seem too long anymore.

That said, it is a game where you can skip quite a lot of stuff if you want to as well. The routes are pretty much written like that as well, which was one of its bigger weaknesses. Dunno how much you bothered playing.

>> No.15791983

I read all of it. I suppose there were big chunks of it that weren't worth remembering, so that might be part of why I don't remember it being that long. Still, it surprises me that it's over 2mb. Maybe I was just less distracted than usual when I read it.

Nah its the same PlayDRM from akabesoft's idol slut game which got cracked, they just managed to encrypt their files correctly this time so you'll need a key for cracking it. Probably most of companies will not be able to do it correctly, while someone will share his key for the other big titles.

Exactly, whether the game is going to get cracked depends on how well the protection is applied, if it's just simple exe and asset encryption then you can dump the exe and files, if they introduce additional checks and virtualize them it becomes a problem

What eroge piracy need is a good cracker (a rarity these days, see how "well" western game warez scene is doing) and cooperation with people who buy games and so far nobody offered to crack stuff if someone shares the key (mikocon said they can share theirs but knowing them it's going to be "crack this game only for us or get lost")

I'd love to check this thing out myself but it's probably way beyond me and fuck buying some shitty nukige just to take a look at the DRM and the trials don't have it

For now only nukige brands use it but I think other publishers are going to jump on the bandwagon once it proves effective and it also depends on whether Japanese players will raise a stink about used game market or not

I dont really think other publishers will use it at least any time soon, if I'm not wrong the first "not cracked" nukige came out like 3-4 months ago, and still not a single big company used or announced it yet except akabesoft, which got cracked after all.

There might be some "uncracked" period at visual novel industry with akabesoft's new engine (or at least Mimasu has said they're making a new engine, dunno if its real or not), but playDRM is not an uncrackable thing. I'm pretty sure at worst someone like checkmate or random uploaders will share their key and the "arrogant chinese cracker" will crack the big titles, and there is the second hand market + trial problems as well. It might be a good solution for protecting the low priced nukiges though.

Not really.

So I've been out of the VN scene and these threads for about two years now, with the last ones I've read being Astralair and Nanarin. Browsing through vndb I found out there have been fandiscs or spinoffs for a lot of my favorites (Baldr, Muramasa, DI, Tsuriotsu, Astralair) but right now I'm looking to get into something completely new. Could I ask for any recommendations or personal favorites from 2015 and 2016?

Nanarin devs apparently have a new one out (Akeiro Kaikitan) so I was planning to check that one out at least.

You should definitely play Himawari's fan disc if you found yourself puzzled by the main game's ending and wanted it expanded / explained more.

I didn't really find the main story in Senshinkan or Bansenjin that super interesting either. Bansenjin is pretty great if you enjoyed the battles though due to load of new BGMs, plus it has the best heroine of 2015.

Murasame's route was fine, probably my favorite aside from Roka's so far.
Mako's route felt like the writer decided to pad out the route with another hour of stuff right when the confession etc would've been a natural next scene because the route would've been to short or something. Though the conclusion of the route was nice I guess.
Maybe the problem is I just don't like Yoshino a whole lot and find her boring, but her route and its main drama and even icha-icha scenes felt like they dragged on and on for minimal payoff.

Finally finished Doshikuro. It's been a while since a title had me coming out very satisfied.

The good:
- Ichou (probably one of Ogura Yui's best role)
- All the characters were decent and had a role leading to the True Route. Even Urara who I hated at first grew into my second favorite character.
- None of the routes felt like they were written just for the sake of it. Each of them highlighted the respective character's story and integrated them to the game's conclusion.
- The writer did a good job utilize the game's settings (Shinto's mythology) instead of just throwing it out there and promptly ignore the settings for the rest of the game.

The Bad:
- Art. The sprites are alright but some CGs are pretty bad.
- The music is serviceable but could use more variety. None of the tracks is very memorable.
- The system seems like it came from the early 2000s. Some voiced lines didn't match the text at all.

Overall it is a really solid title. Everything was well-resolved except for Urara who got shafted hard. Seriously I can't decide if it's Sakuya or Urara who I should feel sorry for.

And nobody ever cared. The... plot.. of this isn't exactly why people play the game. And unless you don't just happen to be into her two big bags of "plot" there's really not much of a reason to play her route. Fine support character, but else?

And that just gets worse as you complete the other routes, as the plot in those is, without exception, terrible. Muramasa's route is actually bad enough for me to call downright overall bad. Even though Muramasa is quite a likeable heroine if you ask me, and unlike Mako and Yoshino she also didn't quite suffer that much in her own route. Mako and Yoshino are just downright way more likeable outside of their routes. Well, Muramasa as well, but it's not as bad I feel.


Yuzusoft will have to think about how to do routes next time. It really shouldn't be that the best part of an eroge is the common route. You could even look at the common route as a kinda stand-alone story.

There's actually two flags you have to get right for the good ending.
1. In the choice you mentioned you must REFUSE her request to put her down if she goes mad.
2. In the bomb escort level you have to keep its HP over 25%. If at the end of battle Hiromi says Nanaka is already dead, you failed. After it you'll also see a scene of dying students and Yuuri putting them out of their misery. If at the end of the battle both of them are still alive, you got it right. You won't see the dying students scene either if I recall correct.
If you got either of those flags wrong you'll get the bad ending.

Also you unlock parts of scenario chart every time you clear a route, showing alternative endings for the route you completed, the related flags and also where the next route begins. Sadly scenario and battle skip are only unlocked after completing the final route, meaning you have to load a previous save and not keep the unlocks you got from clearing the bad ending or start the game from the very beginning and play through the entire route again, or complete the game first and use the skip function.

It's a dating sim. With pants on head retarded writing on the childhood friend main heroine story. If you only want to check the game only for the scene, just look to the video playthrough because the game could get tedious at times. (For example, one scene requires you to have two girls with quite high affection rating, then date one of them on specific place on specific time to get the scene. Good luck finding it without a walkthrough.) If you're looking for a dating sim though, you'll be enjoying this, it gives the 'feel' of getting a certain girl's affection pretty well, because the game's mechanics are geared up just for that.

You'd think that they'd notice that this is a trend across the entire Japanese economy, not just eroge. People won't spend what they don't have. The decline is hitting the other nerdy industries in Japan, too.

Actually the biggest problem is the "price" of the eroges. Some great games might be worth of its price, but most of moeges / average games are "definitely" not worth of a fucking 95 bucks, its just too expensive. If they want to sell, they have to take this shit seriously and stop making sloppy & retarded writing etc in their games.

I mean just look at yuzusoft, its not like they're writing some deep stories etc, they are just a moege company but since they are actually working hard for their games its selling like pancakes. They were the best seller at 2015 and most likely will be at 2016 as well.

It's not just the price and whatnot. It's also fear. We had the NTR thingy just now here, but, I'm pretty sure everyone here knows this for a while know: Current works don't even dare so much as to imply the protagonist is not the absolute number 1 for the heroine(s). To a paranoid "has to stress this at least once every 20 minutes" extend.

It feels like authors aren't able to just.. write what they want, but instead have to rely on what's proven to be "acceptable" and also make damn sure that the customer base is DEFINITELY not upset in even the slightest way. I have the feeling this is also why for example the more "modern" tsundere became a thing. The classic one could very well be a super bitch and unlikeable at first, while the modern take on this type was made so that the audience knows that she actually totally likes the protagonist.. again that being stressed every couple of minutes so nobody could ever possibly get the wrong idea.


Well, this is getting long, but I guess the gist is: The genre needs some shifting. Something a little away from the typical norm needs to sell. This is why I'm quite happy to see companies like August or Moonstone actually experiment even a little bit. And this is also why I feel that doujin works need to maybe step up and produce something REALLY big once more. It's asking for a lot, but a stagnating medium having stagnating sales isn't weird. It's mostly the same shit again and again and again and again after all.

So what will happen? Their next game will not sell as much as this title, and they'll cry how everyone pirates in this generation like a complete retard.

And this is one of the biggest company in the industry, I'm not even counting the average 10 minute into route > 10 h-scenes > ending type moege companies All they have to do is actually putting some work in their games like Yuzusoft or last month's Gin'iro Haruka, then it'll sell, its as simple as that.

Force is an old game, so the gameplay isn't as polished as Sky or Heart (much more fluid than Bullet though). As for the story it's a lot darker than the rest of the series (esp Tsukina's route). Some people say it's better than Sky but I like them equally. It's my first eroge btw.

Okay most people consider it NTR even though technically the girl had a boyfriend the whole time, honestly with that part have no problem.
Anyway it is still a heroine route so arent you kinda stealing then her from him rather anyway?

I've got to agree. Ginharu's MC was not very good. I think he represents a flaw in moege I often seem to feel, which is that the writers forget that romance is between TWO people, not a hot girl and a piece of cardboard. The MC, however unfortunate it may be, is present for the whole story and he needs to play a good role in the relationship beyond being Mr. Perfect for the romance to be interesting.

It was considered NTR for the players, you guys don't understand how it was released.

Before release there was absolutely no mention of her having a boyfriend anywhere.
It was a very hyped game so there was a lot of coverage, she was introduced as the main heroine, childhood friend, who come to wake the protag up and take care of him.

She is far from being the first non-virgin heroine in a galge, the 90's were full of them, but everything that happened before the release and during the game were enough to generate such a shitstorm it impacted the eroge industry as a whole

Just something to add:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KNhp4jANGU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPxfXpUT_Tk

It's clear that she got more attention than other heroines in the promotional video, being the main heroine and all. Which makes the fact that she already has a boyfriend hits harder than ever.

Her CG make it worse: The player can spot Tamaki being kissed by her boyfriend and enjoyed being groped by him in the middle of the night at park. With their own CGs. I mean, why the fuck of all the CG's that they could made to describe a scene in a dating sim, they make a special CG of her happily being kissed and her crotch groped by her boyfriend, in front of the peeping MC that don't do anything when they do it but watch and sulk? Granted, both CG require the player to bring another heroine to a date at a specific place, but still, the frustration would make normal people that don't expect any of these rage hard.

And then there's her being fetched by her boyfriend after the player dating her, and the player caught Tamaki and her boyfriend just walk out of a love hotel.

The boyfriend himself is not an asshole. Even Tamaki telling Rouma during her sex scene to understand that she has given her first time to her boyfriend because he loved her. The dude still even wished her well when breaking up with him. Combine that with how little conflict that the game shows between Tamaki and her boyfriend makes you as the player don't feel any satisfaction stealing her from him at all.

Even so, I think people would still give her a free pass if she's not the main heroine.

This should sum it up pretty well: http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/ownopinion/diary/201212260000/

Well that was a major waste of time. Finished Hanahime Absolute apart from Ayane and Anko since I heard they're gutted side routes. It's like the whole game suffers from too many cooks spoiling the broth and in general huge pacing issues. Played in order Reina > Maher > Polina > Hiyoko > Eve. Like the other anon said there's really no proper stakes in the tournament and no one has any reason for fighting until the end where it plays roughly the same in all routes.

Maher's route for example was pretty much nothing happening in it but boring 特訓 and ended with extremely abrupt final duel with the Queen despite how big of a deal they previously made it up to be, followed by like two lines of text and then instant time skip to everything being nice and dandy again, then credits roll. For being the original cover girl she sure did have the shittiest route. Completely pointless.

Reina's route was also really pretty weird with her instantly falling in love with the protagonist and then they get to confession ASAP without any proper development, though apart from that her route was somewhat better since they actually investigate the weird stuff going on with the tournament. It also ends with implications that there may actually be a semblance of plot and something more going on behind the scenes due to them mentioning Nao is developing something more than just a fun game with Crown Hearts, but none of it ever gets brought up again, not even in Eve's route. Reina's silly H-scenes with her rape doujinshi fantasies / roleplay gave a few pretty good laughs at least.

Polina's route's romance development also came out of the left field, though her route was probably the only one where I was at least somewhat invested in the story towards the end. The game could've used more of that sort of small drama so that there's at least *something* that makes the events feel meaningful in some way. Also the only route where the wishes even get brought up.

Hiyoko’s route was extremely weird as they went straight to groping, kissing and anal sex even before confession, then they go instantly back to normal the next day. Then in the scene right after it she blows the protagonist, and this is the first fucking time the protagonist starts worrying about incest implications. Then the main drama of the route then turns into Hiyoko worrying about incest being a taboo and that the society and the protagonist "will never accept her love". What the flying fuck?

Eve's route is only notable for "wow it's fucking nothing" despite her being the main heroine. Only improvement over other routes was that they didn't get straight to having sex at the start of the route, though any fun or meaningful relationship development and proper humor are still only conspicuous by their absence and the game instantly delves into the same exact end plot as in the other routes. I finally expected some more explanations or characterization for the Queen, why the rival fujobaits even fucking follow her despite knowing about Eve being controlled by Loki and why they're okay with constantly letting the protagonist's group grow stronger despite this being a PvP tournament with supposed stakes and the main prize being having any of your wishes fulfilled, or Nao's supposed motives in letting Loki roam free, but nothing. Nothing in this game can make sense even in a fun way and there's nothing that makes you want to read further apart from the false hope that it'll surely get better later on.

In short the routes themselves are too samey with same events, and romance pretty much instantly begins at the start of the routes, often trumpeted by a load of H-scenes. I'm not expecting any super serious plot from a spiritual successor to Kurukuru, but the heroine personalities or interactions are really nothing special either and if I was looking just for a pure love charage I’d pick something better. The rival pretty boys' camp also couldn't be any more uninteresting and bland compared to Kurukuru's variety of side characters and silly antagonists with their own funny character interactions and motives. It even misses the cute shit like Kurukuru's protagonist scolding the 雑魚 enemies and sort of befriending them. Protagonist himself is bland shit who only fights in story sections, but not in actual gameplay sections despite him being the most skillful player story wise and his only notable characterization is that he can cook and "muh broken promise with Shiki". I already covered why the gameplay feels like a downgrade to PSS in previous threads so I won't complain about it more.

I think the only genuinely good thing I can say about the game are some endgame battle tracks, which were able to get me at least somewhat pumped up in Reina's route. That and the sexy character designs. Sad that they're wasted on a what feels like a gutted and in all ways inferior version of Twinkle Crusaders.

You don't see the MC.
The reader makes the most vital decisions for the MC.
The genre is set up so that the MC is generally decides what his relationship with each girl is going to be before things drag on for too long, so at least you don't find yourself wondering why the girls are fighting over the cardboard for what must be months on end.

He does at least need to shine in regards to being a tool for jokes, though, as well as be surrounded by interesting circumstances. And this isn't a free pass to be an intolerable retard of any kind.

You must not really have read too many games to say all that.

1 - You don't "see" the MC, but you read al his narration and you read everything you say. From raw script data I've look at, this encompasses 50%-75% of each game. Yeah.
2 - You barely make any choices in these games. In Ginharu particular, you don't get *any* choices in the routes and the choices in the common route amount to "Girl gives you something. A) Say you love it or B) Say you like it". Both good things but one less extremely good so it doesn't give love points. This means the reader has no power over the MC's choices and his bland perfectness is shoved in your face. For a lot of modern relationship games, the choices boil down to "Here's a list of the girls. Pick one. You date her." In the past, choices mattered because they were games. Now they're just novels. Even with stuff like Lovely Cation where you choose where to go and what to do twice every day, the narrative itself remains largely unchanged.
3 - You don't wonder why the girls are fighting over him, but you do get bored as the 1-way relationship goes on and on and on. A relationship with 1 interesting person and 1 boring piece of cardboard is very hard to make interesting or engaging. 2 interesting people playing off each other is far superior. Again, in Ginharu, a lot of the dialogue devolves to 1) MC being perfect boyfriend in every way and 2) The girl giving MC a speech which him having nothing to say in response except 相槌 because he's cardboard.

Of course there are the aforementioned problems.

But both games have its fair points of problems.
Because played Baldr Sky recently and Baldr Force before a long time and it was one of my earliest games, might still critize it not enough for its shortcomings.

But fact is both games have their bad and good points.

I hated the deus ex stuff, so I completely understand at least hating on whole Sora's route
but its other routes were pretty okay,
And yeah the damn school age thing was annoying.

Nanoha good end? Literally eaten by assemblies, then suddenly Agent/AI pretty much "ressurects" them bending all rules
Rain route? Nuclear reactor going to blow? Agent appears out of nowhere and stops timer. Part of virtual space is going to disappear? Agent saving the day again. Kou going insane, yep, Agent calming him down
Its literally Kou reaches dead end because he's idiot => Agent appears and saves the day by breaking all rules => rinse and repeat, and by all means this cannot qualify as good story, this is one of most despised plot devices across all mediums and I'm baffled why Sky is getting free pass in this regard.

But still if you are endlessly crying about one or two parts you didnt like and because of that hate the route, then the same could be said about Baldr Force with its unlogical points and all.
Sure its not deus Ex problems but like someone already wrote, the setting and factions were barely explored, it was really barebones.
And most of the heroines felt pretty weak, from relationship, romance.

I played Baldr Force first, and it was so mediocre it turned me off from playing Sky. It was like every dumb sci-fi/cyberpunk cliche rolled into one, rarely doing more than scratching the surface, with plot holes everywhere and heroines that were mostly non-characters. Not to mention the combat system was just repetitive and annoying. I guess I can sort of see why it would have been popular back in the days when an eroge having any kind of a plot at all was notable, but it's not what I would call "good" in any way.

Well honestly Sky somewhat has overall the better story, but there are some moments where the plot gets extremely bad, really extremely bad, well it somewhat depends on her ability to excuse deus ex stuff and of course the school age, which is very simply said a harem comedy.

The pacing is definitively better and the heroines also have stronger appearances, though some you may find not so likeable.

I don't know if you noticed, but it's somewhat connected to Princess Witches (Yggdrasil, Beads-chan, Nao), i.e. magic, so that's probably what they will get into when it gets a FD/sequel, something the game sure needs.

Yeah sure it is not especially fitting but

It is not like she repeatedly proclaims it or has
some deep thoughts repeatedly about how she is not sure who she loves and all that crap,

Tamaki case is a series of small mistakes piling up until it made a catastrophe.

As said, if she was not an osananajimi main heroine she would end as an unremarkable sub-character and nothing of value would be lost.

The game went an extra mile to show how deep in a relationship is with her boyfriend showing in CGs her boyfriend kissing and groping her, and showing several times in the exit of a love hotel. By all means this was unnecesary for the narrative and shows how much willing élf shoot in his foot.

Tamaki herself is kind of a ビッチ. The MC is supportive toward Tamaki and her boyfriend relationship and does not proceed with the aim of stealing her back. Tamaki herself ask for dates with the MC, despite she having a boyfriend AND getting caught several times by him. When the MC asks if is ok to keep dating after getting caught by her (understandably) angry boyfriend she says that is all right.
The last time MC and Tamaki get caught meeting, the boyfriend picks her and in front of a love hotel breaks with her.
The boyfriend is a nice guy and wishes her well even after seeing her girlfriend cheating him with her osanajimi friend several times.

After a few days, the MC becomes the rebound guy and during sex she reminds him how much she loved her previous boyfriend (a medecine student with an sports car) but sex with MC feels better.

If I recall correctly near the end of her route she talks about a childhood promise to marry the MC, adding even more fuel to the fire after she seemed to not care until that point.

In summary, it was not élf trying to be original breaking the molds of a stagnant genre, it seems like an internal boicot to make the main heroine as much unlikable as possible.

Well honestly have no problems with people calling her unlikeable for the stuff she does, her behaviour seems really strange.
What the heck was the scenario writer thinking when he wrote her route...

Anyway people screaming NTR, that is whats wrong, especially with all that misinformation which has spread.

The problem with Tamaki's route is that is really badly written and makes her seem like a bitch, as a character many of her actions dont make sense even though she acts like a nice girl.
If she wanted to break up with her boyfriend she could have done it anytime but out of some reason she doesnt and waits until he breaks up with her.
Her route just has those points where it seems strange, it doesnt really make sense at all.

>If she wanted to break up with her boyfriend she could have done it anytime but out of some reason she doesnt and waits until he breaks up with her.

That's actually.. rather realistic. Of course that doesn't make her a nice girl or anything, but not every girl is nice. If the MC still accepts her, well nice. There should be nothing wrong to start a casual relationship based around having sex with a girl like that, but if you want more.. good luck. Though that can still work out of course.

Love isn't always black and white. People pretty much always prefer to be with a certain one person and as such anyone else is "less important". That however doesn't mean they can't settle with that if the preferred one is not going to happen. There's also a lot more. Something eroge tend to completely ignore. And perhaps that's better, seeing how shitty most drama is. If you fuck up the writing with this kind of stuff.. well yeah.

Unless there are reports of élf pissing off their employees back then, that's sounds way too unlikely to happen. But then again, they dare to release this on the same day as Rance VI. It's like watching a trainwreck in a slow motion.

Baldr Heart is a straight improvement to Sky gameplay wise, and the story was entertaining enough, though it suffers from same stuff as Sky such as going through same or similar events in further routes again, recycling some character archetypes and so on. It also misses the variety of Sky's world building through exploring different factions' sides and while the heroines weren't awfully bad or anything, I didn't find them as memorable as Sky either. I'd say it's easily my favorite game of 2016 so far, as I can't really think of any point I got bored or felt the need to go back to browsing 4chan.

Momentary am just in second route, so cant completely judge it yet of course.

But will say momentary at least there was no Deus Ex and the story seemed pretty okay.
... Yes, have already heard there will later be some.of those Deus Ex moments again, hope there are not to many but so far none of it happened not even some net distortion thing.

But well it plays in the same world and timeline as Sky, you even meet mercenary Kou before he got his chip fried.

Also it somewhat even creates a connection with Force.

For those who also dont like Kou dont fret, Edward is nothing like him.
He is kind of a mercenary from beginning, well he has memory loss too but none of it makes him act like a student and apart from some mystery what exactly happened, you get his background story already in second route.
Also he has no problem with killing people.
And best of course no school age, well considering Edward's background ...

The setting looks to be a bit darker than Sky but again am just in second route, cant judge completely yet.

Also if the Battle system is to easy then change the difficulty.

Kind of dont see why the gameplay is so bad, only thing have to critize is there seem to be far less weapons to play around with.

The main conflict was incredibly immature and childish. The resolution was too. Their relationship was nice, great even, but the "plot" aspect (i.e. involving the evil ghost and all) was so frustrating. Any meaning or impact the ending would have had was ruined by the whole thing just being awfully childish. I was raging because I was basically like "c'mon what the fuck grow up" the whole time.

You better start on Normal because GIGA increased the difficulty a lot compared to Sky. Hard is like 3x harder than Normal in some battles. Plus aerial combos now aren't as safe as it used to be, so don't abuse them.

It is still quite doable on hard, I actually did the first two routes on VH except THAT ONE fight on Mao route which was on hard and then tried to stay as much as on VH as possible except on several more bullshit zako fights when I switched to hard, there some of those around. Just gotta be more carefull and patient and mix your melee with ranged and know when to go to air. But zako fights were indeed lot harder in Heart than Sky, bosses most part are on same level.

I saw it as her mother was pregnant and dived to net so there is still information of baby in the virtual and AI trying to percieve it as life. And there was the whole theme around of purely beings born on net due to evolution of AI. + the facts that >>15807004 mentioned also added to her "birth".

I liked Sky's heroine design more. I don't know how to put it, but Heart's main girls looked pretty unimpressive and generic to me for some reason. Probably the school uniforms since that's majorly the only thing they wear, though some of the fairies were cute.

There's a lot of shops that offer them that you can just go inside and compare prices between shops. And they usually differ for exclusive goods.

But I'm guessing you're looking for old or used games. Most places I frequent to are Trader's and Kamifusen. Sofmap's a bit expensive. You can check out the back alley shops, they should be cheaper.

That's the point I also first started wishing that they were having some bigger plot revelation in store for later, except that it never came, not in other routes, not even in the unlocked main heroine route. How can they fuck up so bad? Reina's route already revealed all the necessary information and everything plot related, Eve's route adds nothing meaningful for the main plot, not even character development and the same obvious broken promise dilemma was already solved many times in the other routes. A far cry from Twinkle Crusaders' Azel route.

But sure, if they do end up releasing an improved fan disc / sequel instead of trashing the whole thing due to fan backlash I'll probably play it anyways, since I desperately want some god damn payoff for all the time I wasted with the game.

I might be operating under a different definition of kamige, as I suppose it will always be impossible to reach a consensus on its complete definition.

I would give it a solid 9.5 or so, though - a 10 is impossible. Of course, scores are also confined within their genre in my opinion.

I, not him, subtracted a solid 1.5 points from Hoshi Ori purely because the meat of the game (the most of the time) was engaging in the same kind of club activities for a festival, that's the worst for me. Then I subtracted 0.6 because in the routes I did I didn't feel too much realism to the relationship in terms of serious drama. I wonder if you give it such a high score because pure love is a drug?
