Baldr Heart was the best mix of gameplay and at least entertaining story. I can't think of any part where I got outright bored so I'd say it's overall the best new thing this year.
Island was one of those games with some really drawn out middle parts, but the last chapter made it all better in retrospect and so it's my favorite if talking only about VNs with no gameplay.
Himawari with Aqua After were my favorite backlog games.

Hanahime Absolute was the biggest disappointment of the year and one of the worst games I've forced myself to finish in general.

Currently reading Nora to koujo, but it's a bit disappointing. The common route was pretty fun, but the conflict isn't very engaging. Hearing kiritani again is kind of fun, though I liked her character from the pervious harukaze game better.

I'll still try all the other routes, but am hoping they don't drag on as long as pat's. Hopefully there'll be some surprise endings like the vampire in love koutei.

I was going to play giniro after this, but I'm apprehensive because it's really just another moege, just like this title.

That vampire route was one of the uniquest route I have ever played, or at least from a moege. They did a brilliant job with all the lie-truth confusion, As the reader even I couldnt figure it completely out until the end.

Erika and Hikari's routes were pretty great and I had some great laughs at Rukina's so its acceptable as well, but Chitose and Suu were just mistakes, they fucked up the game's quality. Specially Suu route was one of the worst route I have ever played, even though the idea itself was actually nice.

Finished Saori's route, and with it Akikuru.

It was amazing, Watanabe has done it again. Absolutely fantastic ending. If there's one thing he excels in it's perfectly tying up a story thematically.

Definitely my favourite VN of 2016 anyway. If there's one complaint I'd have it's the lack of enforced route order and the effect this had on the narrative, it doesn't have the same sense of continuity that the other 2 had and the individual stories suffer slightly as a result, there's a reason Saori's route is by far the best one.

But the VN still has great characters, hilarious humour, comfy romance, interesting quantum physics ideas and sociopolitical themes, and a powerful conclusion. Very disappointed that there apparently won't be a Fuyukuru.

Final ratings:
Heroines: Kiss > Satorin > Noah > Saori > Sensei > Mihaya > Yuzuki > Ayumi
Routes: Epilogue > Saori > Kiss > Noah > Yuzuki > Ayumi > Mihaya

This game had MAJOR pacing issues, it did not needed to be about half as long as it was. He opted not to explore any of the "interesting quantum physics" past a surface level in favor of pursuing the romcom and pushing the main idea of "Crazy shit going on in the universe doesnt actually matter just romcom everything". That theme is kind of gay and anticlimactic to me, you could easily take a lot of what happens as deus ex mahchina, but I think he did a decent job with it for what it was and it took a lot of balls to write something like tis.

I had fun reading the game, but I don't think its on par with Natsukuru or the later parts of Harukuru at all, so your glowing praise of it and refusal to look at its many glaring issues perplexes me.

But whatever, I'm glad you liked it. Doori best girl and route, fuck Saori.

But I mentioned the issues, and agree it's not quite as amazing as Natsu/Haru, although those games were masterpieces, so despite not being of that tier it can still be a really really good VN.

I don't agree with your interpretation of the main idea. It's about how the world is as you perceive it, so you need to actively pursue happiness positively. It's about the value and richness of everyday life, of treasuring the fun time you spend with friends and family. It's about the impact of your choices on your future and the people around you, and how people aren't actually that different from one another, how people can learn to understand and get along with each other and overcome their differing values and perspectives. You call that kind of theme "anticlimactic", but saving the universe is meaningless unless you're saving that one precious person to you alongside it. Harukuru's ending was glorious not because we saved the Earth and the human race, but because we saved 5 very special girls and can now build a future together.

I certainly hope no one here disagrees with the obvious fact that Kiss was best girl.

Unless, like, you have some empathy, and the capability of caring about the lives of billions of other people living their lives.
The one thing I can never like about Japanese writing* is the persistent theme of "the people beside you are more important the everyone else". I can understand that for normal life - you'd lend a friend $100 bucks but not a random stranger - but I just can't agree that, for instance, letting 1,000,000 people die in return for your 10 friends surviving is the right philosophy to have. Really displays a lack of empathy in my opinion.

*I say Japanese writing here because I see this theme in so many Japanese works I read but very rarely in English works, so I figure it's a kind of cultural thing.

Romancing 2D Yuuki Aoi is certainly one of the few positive things about it. I wish it let me tap Lavenza as well

But there are too many other things killing it. The pacing is just utterly terrible. It has more text than a VN but meanders on forever and is ultimately a bore to read. There's no subtlety whatsoever, you're slammed with exposition and explanations all the way through. And fuck the phone conversations in particular. Not only are those more redundant text to read, you have to read them on a 255,0,0 background because it's muh visual style.

I wonder why they bothered bringing back human designed dungeons just to hand hold the player through them. The UI is sex but it has functional issues in battle. Fusion and the battle system work fine but that's about it.

Both of those indeed had the theme of saving the one you love more than the ones beside you. I know. I still don't agree in the large scale. I don't even mean it's important for people to be selfless superheroes dedicating themselves to the lives of others because of some utilitarian thing. Rather, I just mean it's good to have empathy for other people, such that YES saving the universe is meaningful because you saved BILLIONS of people, not just the 5 girls you have a crush on. If you have so little empathy for other people that you put, say, the girl you like over millions of other people, I honestly just think that's a degree of sociopathy, or a result of living a life so isolated/unfortunate your image of other people is either non existent or largely negative.

If you think it's not any degree of sociopathy, then just image it in a more physical form. In Fate stay night, as Sakura was being possessed by the grail she killed tens of thousands of people in their homes just by walking by them. That's a bitsymbolic, so let's make it more concrete. You are Shirou. You have a gun with crates of bullets nearby. In front of you, 50,000 people, families, elderly, children, etc. all lined up. You have a choice. 1) shoot each one of those 50,000 people in the head, the children the elderly the women the family members, one by one, or 2) Shoot Sakura.

If anyone picked the first one, I would call them, to some degree, a sociopath. When you idealize it like "red pill or blue pill, 50,000 people die or your waifu dies", it's easy to press the 50,000 and wax romantic about how important it is to value those you know. But when you're actually the one with a gun shooting the children in the head, I don't think the philosophy holds up with beauty. It's a valid philosophy. I don't attack those who hold it. But I do consider it to a significant degree sociopathic.

Letting it happen naturally is not the same as being the one to kill them one by one though. See the trolley problem.
And I'd argue that the one picking the 50k over his dearest friends is the sociopath. Why is quantity important?

>> No.16342129

>>16342055
The point wasn't that you're the one killing them, so much as that you have to SEE who you're killing, and SEE the despair and the horror you're inflicting upon them. Pressing a button and 50,000 people you don't know die? Easy to ignore. Witnessing the families you're tearing apart? The children you're murdering? That's harder to ignore. If you want, have some terrorist guy with a gun shooting the 50,000 people in front of you as you watch, that's the same point I'm trying to drive.

Quantity is important because human lives are important. That's why I'm taking about empathy. If you have no empathy and view people you don't know as worthless, then that's in my opinion representative of sociopath.

Also, with the trolley problem, choosing not to act is choosing to act in and of itself. Witnessing the problem makes you a part of it - choosing not to physically touch anything doesn't remove you from the problem (that is, if you choose not to pull the level, that's the same level of choice as actually pulling the level). Watching the terrorist shoot the 50,000 people and not stopping him makes you just as culpable* for their deaths as the terrorist himself.

*given the situation and the fact you have the tools to easily stop him

>If you have no empathy and view people you don't know as worthless
You don't have to do that to pick the other side though. A normal human will be sad either way about his choice precisely because of empathy. It's about thinking one is more important to you, not that the other side is "worthless". As a human I think it is hundred percent okay to be selfish and emotional, and make decisions guided by that. Abandoning your very nature for some 5 > 1 logic will only lead to ruin. Sure you can save the 50k, but among the ten was the person you wanted to marry and spend the rest of your life with, your best friend you've known since kindergarten and your dear family members. Now they're gone, you become depressive and in the worst case suicidal and kill yourself. This is no way to live unless you're literally Jesus Christ and don't care about yourself. At that point it's no longer empathy but self–abandonment.

If you're so selfish and emotional, that you could kill 50,000 people and not become depressive and suicidal, I think that's representative of a sociopath.You talk about one's "very nature", but I think it's more natural to care about people and have empathy for others.

You don't have to be Jesus Christ to think killing 50,000+ people is beyond unacceptable.

The point was it's not okay or mentally healthy to not care about dead people unless it impacts you directly, i.e. are people you know.

I really think you're pushing ideology and stuff on me that I haven't said at all. For example, you said "a sad hero", but I have never mentioned heroism a single time.

Well you just keep repeating yourself and ignoring the point made so... I can only direct you to the above posts. Picking one does not mean you don't care for the other. Do you not understand this? You can mourn the loss of the other side and care for them deeply. It is about what choice is more important to you, and summing it up in numbers like you do in every single post with no regard for any other human emotion is dumb because it doesn't work like that. What you're describing has NOTHING to do with empathy.

Note the lack of "sad" in human. Among many other subtle reveals that you are approaching this without actually having empathy for people you don't know. Saying "yeah, both are sad, BUT one is actually the one where you're sad" doesn't actually mean you recognize it as sad.

Because I don't think there is need for an adjective in front of human who by definition includes all emotions. "Sad hero" because he's trying to reach some "objective right" while still killing people in the process which goes against the very nature of a hero (again a play on Fate). Also in case it wasn't obvious enough and you seem to think I'm hiding this or whatever, yes I would pick the 10 every time. That doesn't mean I don't feel any emotion towards the others.

If that's all you want, go with a random moege. Try to avoid stuff with true routes, as those tend to have a bit more plot/drama. (i.e. pic related is a bad idea.. especially as the plot isn't good) There aren't THAT many moege with that though.

If you really just want comfy without ANY drama, you'll be looking a bit. (which seems weird, but really "only" comfy is hard to find) The recently released Sailove may qualify, but it's also short. I don't know your example, so I can't say much about it. But if in any way the guy stands out.. VN may be a bad medium to find something similar. Protagonists in moege tend to not stand out. At all. Your best bet would probably something like Katahane which has no clear protagonist and is heavy slice of life.

Well, while I said "random" moege, you'd obviously check some scores or whatever first and see some general opinions. So ideally it's not boring.
In the end though, "boring vs. comfy" is ultimately a matter of taste, so no matter how much other people say, you may disagree. Katahane is a perfect example. Some consider it boring as fuck, while others love its atmosphere. (myself included) On the flipside I found something like Otome Domain way more boring, as it just went on and on about the same stuff while trying to maintain some status quo to pad things. At least in one route and in part the common route. It just depends.

PD is better in terms of file retention and ease of use, although not as much stuff there, especially the old stuff
Share's internal search system is a bit retarded, it only gives you files that are available based on the peers you are connected to at the moment, that's why it uses the trigger system that adds the file to your download queue once it's available, PD's search gives you all results but it takes a bit to complete
keydb crawls the network 24/7 so it has a database of pretty much everything on Share
When searching for stuff I use keydb first to see if the file was ever available, because imo it's the largest database of Japanese files that have been uploaded through history (excluding the ancient times of Winny and WinMX), then I search for it in google + zip/rar/iso/mds/flac/whatever keyword then on clubbox, but clubbox is good for eroge and drama. Google is pretty good when searching for Japanese stuff because it usually doesn't get DMCA'd from their results

Utatane is the best for rare files because it's full of hoarders with multi-terabyte collections but you either need to be really good at talking to Japanese people, have stuff to trade (everyone does trading exclusively on public servers), or get access to private servers where everything is free to leech

Hard to say. I'd say ultimately the prologue will probably be the best part of it, but I do have my fun with it. Though there are a bunch of things one can criticize.

Note that it's a pretty heavy plotge. It spends very little time with anything that's not plot. As a result the romance in my first route now feels kinda.. out of place to be honest. It's actually really weird, but I guess that's what you get if you don't pad? Game is just a bit above 1mb after all. Speaking of the route, it feels so far more like a build-up to the last (enforced) route. Not really too focused on its heroine even.

Well, got my fun, even with its issues. Will probably write a bit more once I'm done in a few days or so. I quite like the cast as well. Funny though how they recycled a bunch of backgrounds of Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia. Music too.

Are you saying that visual novels as a media is inseparable from porn? That a good visual novel cannot be without porn? Or that somehow visual novels are made worse by not having porn?

Also you argument to "go read books" is silly as erotic fiction is a large number of books published in any giving year. Most of them are garbage and a waste of paper, just like the majority of ero visual novels. Where as the vast majority of non ero visual novels this year have been very good, and the vast majority of great books have no erotic content. Porn is used at a crutch by poor writers.

>the people beside you are more important the everyone else

Well, otaku VNs and LNs are all counterculture, and you're talking about a society which continuously tells you to undermine individuality for the sake of a greater whole. Also you're talking about a country whereby this idea of heroism was taken to the extent whereby you had the kind of aggressive Bushido code that supported suicide for the sake of society.

I don't think they really say that these people are 'more important than anyone else' - but most of the time it's about how people lack the abilities to live up to these ideals, and that's okay. Taking the line from SubaHibi, its about how 'my world is the limit of my world' after all. Sekai-kei is all about how the entire fate of the universe rests on the wavering emotions of a single and usually flawed individual, and that kind of apocalyptic narrative ramps up these minuscule emotions a thousandfold. How little of the world is within your control, and how maintaining a small joy in all that is enough.

Morality aside, more important is the expression and presentation of that kind of worldview. People know that the world is much more complicated than that, so even if a writer creates any kind of easy utilitarian compass within the plot - it becomes more of a reflection of psychology and emotion than any actual kind of moral message.

Finished Baldr Heart.
Can someone explain me the Nagi normal and good ends?
Where did that girl come from? Illegal nano assemblers are all dismantled so clones can't be produced. Also, why didn't anyone notice her while she was boarding? She shouldn't be a ninja anymore lol. She also seemed like she knew that Sou forgot her. wtf.
Also, concerning the good end. So I guess Nagi was still connected to her real body. Why couldn't she logout in her real body then even when she realised the real body she lived in was a meme. Is it because of meme? AI happened? That's kinda lame. Or is it the same as with Makoto in Sky? Body was frozen so it's detached? Also Nagi already restored her conciousness when Sou called for her in the childhood, no? So if Sou didn't spread the meme and just told everyone to unfreeze Nagi, everything wouldve worked out, no? When Nagi's body unfreezed a logout icon appeared and Nagi immediately logged out from Akasha? What a joke. What happened to her digital body? Did it reform to accomodate to her young body? It looks like Chinatsu ending all over again.
I counted the sumicram number in the dreadnaught and indeed there were 35-36 there. The problem is - were there really such a bunch of weirdos in this school lol. 2 mad scientists, a couple of generals, snipers and others... OR did they just possesed the weapon in Akasha and shared it with Sou? That's complicated... Also, how did Sou know the Souka Gakusotai warcry? Was Shou in Gakusotai too? From what I've seen, gakusotai was a female only unit, huh.


Well anyway that was a great ride. I didn't expect the Sky-level game so I wasn't disappointed. I think it's better than Force. The gameplay is obviously better. The story... is on par I guess.

The OST is good. The story is good. The characters are interesting. Well except for that parody of Gilbert, lol. Zaibatsuphilia instead of egoism or madness from strengthened brain, srsly?

A bit disappointed they didn't insert the obligatory "もう、終わりにしよ!" before the last boss though.

Also, they could've inserted "我らに続けッ!!勝利は我が手にッ!!!" more. It sounded cool in that one scene.

Also it was interesting to notice small foreshadowing scattered throughout the game, for example "我らに続けッ!!勝利は我が手にッ!!!" that Sou said in the beginning or how Tsukuyomi mistakened him or the place where he met FEIs.

So. Tokihate done. I'm not completely sure how I got from the beginning to the end, but okay. I think I had fun. It's just kinda funny to look back at the different plot elements when you got the big picture at the end. Feels so.. distant.

In the end, the game kinda feels a bit like a mix of ideas that could've and probably should've explored a bit better in detail, though I personally don't mind the way it ended up being. It was a journey. One that most definitely ended way different than one would assume (for a good time), but hey. It makes sense at least.. I guess. And while I would've liked more in regards to the ex.. I suppose there is not much one could do. Poor thing.

Route-wise I gotta say, the first two routes are a little of a disappointment. They aren't bad (aside of weird and not very fitting romance elements), but they are pretty much identical, just with the girl swapped. It's fucking weird. (and yet makes sense in story context.. kinda) I'd say you can safely skip one of them, if you'd want. Probably better to just read Komako and not Eri, but it doesn't really matter. The skip-function unfortunately doesn't really work too well, if you want to read both, as the text is mostly different as well. The girl is different after all, even though the story related events are pretty much the same.
After that you got the imouto route. Gotta say the game sure lead me on a wrong track and I was disappointed at first, but in the end I still kinda got what I hoped I'd get just in more weird, with less answers and kinda different than expected. That said, many question-marks. Especially in regards to the heroine. I can think of a few theories but it's just fucking weird. On thing I know though. The girl is fucking crazy. And I like it. Who knows, maybe Mori Dreamers 2 solves some of it. It is the same world. (and time as its private-detective is a cameo of sorts) I sure wouldn't mind.

The slow speeds must be because of the great chinese firewall, I remember downloading off baidu at good speeds in the past.

I don't get why you think the xcation series is good. Now, that's not to say that I don't think the xcation GAMES have been good. But the key employees have been shifted around such that there is no quality guarantee for the cation games - each o the series (Lovely Cation, Pretty Cation, and Purely Cation) have had different writers and artists - Insider and Iizuki Tasuku for Lovely, Kokuyouseki and Oryou for Pretty Cation, and Owngoal + other writer and Nanaroba Hana for Purely Cation. The core staff has been shifting non-stop for a logn time.

Basically, the "cation" series is so varied that it makes no sense to call it a good series from them - you should be focusing on the various writers and artists that have worked on the series. For the Niizuma game, they have two new writers (+one coming back from Purely) and only Iizuki Tasuku the artist for Lovely is coming back.

why do you want the ps2 version? looks like the dvdpg version is better if you want original art/voices/least censoring

>you should buy both Acta est Fabula and Amantes Amentes, then play AeF and ctrl though AA to unlock the side stories and extended epilogues at the end of each route. Then switch completely to AA once you reach the last chapter in Rea's route.

To those here who like Kotorii Yuuka (Takamori Natsumi). Her role in "Meguru Sekai de Towanaru Chikai o" is pretty damn good if you ask me. (Also best girl) The game is generally pretty fun aside of that as well, I'd say. Good stuff. So far I have way more fun with this than I had with Izumo 4.

Just checked their Twitter and it might be a problem on their end. But oh well, doesn't matter in the end when it's just a minor inconvenience to access it from a proxy.

From the looks of it, it is only a matter of time until PlayDRM is rendered useless as shit. Only tricky part is to generate a valid registration key.

No, it doesn't work like that

If they didn't fuck up their cryptography, every game is encrypted with an unique key that is derived by the protection from your hardware ID and the license data the server sends you if you input the correct serial, from what I gather a keygen would be possible on per-title basis which would still require you to buy the game to obtain the decryption key you'd need to perform an inverse process on to obtain the license for given hardware, at which point it's easier to unwrap the game .exe now that you bought the game

Even if there were an universal way to crack every game which would imply a master key leak or a crypto fuckup it's for them to patch for next releases

PlayDRM should be fairly easy to crack just how Enigma Protector gets owned, the problem is that there's no cooperation between crackers and people who buy games, you want something cracked you better buy it and contact that chinese guy on 2dkf who pissed off akabeisoft, even he can't crack every title if he doesn't have the activation data and the ones he did were only possible because of protection misuses
