/jp/ is it just me or have things just gotten boring and old? NO good vns are coming out, video games are boring, I watched all the best anime from 1975 to now. there is just nothing fun anymore. Im even started watching real tv and watching the walking dead. there is just nothing magical any more. I wish there was some long good romance anime like they had in the good old days that would go on for 100 eps like maison or orange road. everything is short and there is not enough time to develop the characters. why is nobody really giving it there all on vn translations anymore? remember when there was always a good line up of vns coming out? Shouldn't translation projects be increasing? And why is everything going so slow and being wasting on not so exciting titles? Im just ranting but anybody feel like things are just not picking up and just boring? I mean things like Mahōtsukai no Yoru not going anywhere or all those tons of good old and new vns not being translated. most of the translators have been stuck on the same shit for months going nowhere.

Also there was always R07 vns to look forward too. what is going on with rose gun days? why is no body talking about it? is the translation even almost done? And did it end or will be be continued? what has he been working on now? I just find it weird how there is no talk about rose gun days at all. Having a ro7 vn to look forward to each season was just another thing to look forward too.

Also its not just how many vns we are getting, its the type. before we were getting a lot of heavy plot related vns and now all we are seeing are one or two good vns getting translated. basically I/0 and.. well i guess rewrite and buldar sky. everything else looks like a average moege. arent there more plot heavy games people could be picking up? sadly Mahōtsukai no Yoru and blad are going nowhere. So all we really have to look forward too that wont be such a bore will be I/0. I mean there has to be penalty of other vns, new and old that aren't really moege but have a much deeper plot that could be getting translated. basically what im trying to get at is there is nothing to look forward to... the future looks boring.

>> No.9993037

I feel the same way. I have developed very high standards of media, and I've consumed almost everything that is worthwhile in my sphere. Anything that I haven't played yet is because of language barrier or that I don't have enough money for the newer consoles as I am not in possession of them anymore. Even then, it's less than a dozen games spanning over the last 10 years. I've played everything else that I've wanted to play. Watched everything that I've wanted to watch. Music will always present something new, but it's more of a passive, background thing that isn't mandatory.

I estimate that if I knew Japanese and had sufficient money, I would finish all of those things within two weeks. Then I would truly be done with everything. All I do now is refresh /jp/ and other lesser known boards 18 hours a day.

Im taking pills for that, dont worry. im just getting sacred because a big part of my life is looking forward to vns and im afraid of the boring line up of things getting translated. I hope after rewrite ixerc will do more complex but shorter games to look forward too. snice we are still getting vns from 2001 and such, is there a lot of newer heavy plot related games to translate still? I hope the translation line up will get better soon so i have something to look forward to again.. >>9993022
But nobody here read rose gun days in Japanese at all or are interested just a bit on whats going on with it? why haven't they said anything about how much is translated, hell i cant even find a iso for it. it was never posted on /jp/ during the con.

I hope not because im afraid of them running out of good vns too translate, the translation line up has been worrying me. there are less epic vns on the list, is that because there are less vns or that the translators are behind/slowing down? Why is there no new blood in the translation scene? I mean we are losing people and people are getting slower... we need new blood to keep it going. Shouldn't it be gett larger? nit slowing down?

These type of people never really liked VNs, video games, or anime. They enjoyed these things because the cool kids played video games in high school, the 3DPD DISREGARD BITCHES types in 4chan watch anime and the truneets in /jp/ play VNs.

Books are different. There's a reason I don't read them. They have no audiovisual properties.

I suppose so. You can say that about anybody's standards though. The more specific, the more narrow. I still feel like people can generally tell what a high quality product is, regardless of whether or not they enjoy it, for instance.

I mean dont you people feel the same way? before we always had somerthing to look forward too, being RO7 which you guys dont even talk about and a good line up of vns always almost coming out. now that the vn translations are going slow as fuck and i dont even know the news on RO7, things are just really getting boring. I just dont know what to do with myself. I cant get myself to beat the first route in duel savior though... Is it just me or is the game just too... plain? or does it get deeper and the plot thickens? I hear berio is the worse route so does it get better or does it stay cliche mediocre ?

No, I just like looking at pretty pictures and listening to pleasant sounds over reading text. Visual novels are fine because they are enhanced by those elements. If I like the visuals and audio, I'd still have to get an idea of how the writing is by examining details. There are multiple ways of doing that, but it doesn't take a very long time. It's no problem because very few VNs actually satisfy my standards, even before I look at the writing.

I wouldn't say they NEVER work, it's just very difficult to find the ones that may work for you. Also depends on if the depression is caused majorly by internal (chemical imbalance bullshit) or external (emotional, things that may be reasoned with) factors.

And of course, having others things that have the potential to make you happy helps radically, for either kind.

OP, just take it easy. I used to (and sometimes still do) have this really tense, always rushing feeling to consume media. But if you just stop, pay more attention to that music you're listening to, think, observe, meditate,, whatever, it draws everything out and you can be at peace. If you're tired of a medium, explore another. There's almost always something potentially really fun that you may have missed.

>> No.9993114

You're imagining things. Translations were never pumped out like a Nike in a Chinese sweatshop, you simply had a large backlog to look forward to when you started reading. You got everything in one go, the new and the old, and now that you've exhausted it you see the reality of the situation.

Good point. I can give you that. However, the incentive to take on the translation of a game for nothing in return would probably have to be backed by honest passion and wanting to deliver only the best for everyone that doesn't know the language. It's not the same with anime/manga, where it takes a few hours to translate and get it out there just so you could get your translation team's dick sucked by fans of anime who don't know Japanese or something. Not going to say that even VN translation is given a lot of love and attention, but I like to believe that it's the case more often than not. I'll eventually learn Japanese, though. One of these days.

>> No.9993161

because im lazy and Japanese is hard? guys just tell me, Are there still tons of interesting "plot" related vns still left to be translated? not things like moege or just picking a girl and go into her route to romance her. It can have that but i mean things with a over arching deep grand plot wit different settings. like aree there a lot of good detective,mystery,scifi,horror,etc , etc vns left? and a lot of them? I just want to know if the line up is because of good things running out or its just the whole translation scene picking moege and simple vns with just plain romance with no other hidden or grand themes.

Congratulations I suppose. You've already done whatever it was you were born to do, even if you haven't noticed it. The rest of your life is the same as a wandering period you'd be allowed, to just explore and have zero plot progression in a videogame. You're finished.
