What's the most complicated game in terms of 100% completion? Off the top of my head France Shoujo had the lengthiest "walkthrough" I've ever seen but I'm wondering if there's any super niche game out there with something even worse.

Remember11 has some insignificant choices at the start of one character's route that affects a few lines at the late game of the other character's route, if i remember it correctly. I never made it to 100%, just 99.xx%.

Even if you remove those insignificant lines of dialogue, getting all endings can be confusing because of the interconnectivity of the two routes.

>> No.18818627

>>18818619
I gotta add that there is a portion in Remember11 where characters are playing some game and string of choices lead to some random results. whatever happens in their game is not significant to the story but it adds to the in-game completion rate.

You know going through KKK I had mixed feelings, I felt that it was completely unnecessary and spat in the face of DI. Though I did have some fun reading some fights Soujirou vs Shiori/ Habaki vs Yato, to name a few, finishing up that last fight I'd have rated it a solid 7.5/10. The epilogue on the other hand just hit me with the feels, specifically this little screencap. I haven't felt this way since reading Marie's epilogue, so it got me to reevaluate my feelings as a whole, probably would give it an 8.5/10.

I'm not sure it unlocks anything, or at least the walkthroughs I looked at didn't seem to mention anything. I'm assuming the last bunch of missing choices and messages are for every point where you can try to point out the culprit (there's several) and have to actually write the name yourself and the game counts every possible entry as new choice, because as far as I recall I already clicked every normal choice.

I also noticed that's a slightly older screenshot, I actually have 100% music completion as well but hadn't yet listened to the unlockable sound drama from the menu when taking that screenshot.

Common was more than good enough. Question is just how the routes will end up. That's where Yuzusoft has commonly issues.

I'm actually surprised that the "story" isn't even that terrible. It's nothing special, but it also doesn't act as if it was and just gets all retarded as a result. Even the political situation and whatnot that's talked about in minor fashion is okay. For an eroge it's actually surprisingly believable what's happening, even if it may seem not very exciting for some as a result.

Finished her route. Extremely standard. EXTREMELY standard. While that's not outright bad, it's also not good. Guess you can only do so much with nbr sister routes, but you can definitely to more than this, if you wanted to. Arguably that'd not fit Yuzusoft very well, but alas.
That said, I liked the redhead's role in this route and the little backstory of Nanami herself. That's not a particularly big part of the route, but still.

I also have one of these lying around that I want to try whenever I feel like doing something REALLY stupid.

Some games on this engine seem to crash every 5 minutes for some as well, so that'd be a very fun combination.

Has anyone else finished vol 3 of ゾンビのあふれた世界で俺だけが襲われない?
Then VN seems to have caught up with where the WN is, though its last update was over a year ago. It's possible that they would want to publish the rest as a VN first before putting it on narou, but who knows. If another volume gets released it looks like it will be the last one so it'll be interesting to see how it goes. Hopefully it won't be another three years of wait.

Finished Meguru's route in Sanoba Witch. I actually liked it quite a bit. While the plot isn't as engaging as Nene's route, Meguru is a better heroine and she pretty much carries her own route. I also didn't find her personality to be that different from her common route self, it felt like a logical change in perspective rather than a character assassination like a worse game might do.

What that one anon said about it being a dating manual is spot on and I enjoyed that aspect, it was nice seeing a heroine have some semi-realistic reactions to an awkward protagonist while still loving him.

Don't really feel like doing Tsumugi's route (I'm slightly curious about her magic but she's a really boring moeblob) or Touko's route (not my type of girl and her sprite's 5head annoys me) so I might just plow through Wakana's short route and then consider the game finished.

Done with Ayase's route. It's nice that she never loses her character and even the ero takes that into account, which is unfortunately not a given. It's in theory longer than Nanami's route as well, but ultimately that doesn't matter much. To me the route had no ending. Why do moege always fuck up so hard with "plot" at the end? Riddle Jokers actually wasn't too bad with that stuff for the most part, but for the end of this route, probably because it's the main heroine's route or something, they just did the typically overly exaggerated plot you better just ctrl through to not ruin everything before. But, that's Yuzusoft for you. I should've expected it, even with the signs before kinda speaking against that.

Playing this however also reminded of something. When Nanami becomes the girlfriend in her route, she loses part of her character which is unfortunately close to all that she had in the route making the following rather uninteresting. That didn't need to be though. Nanami is supposed to be an Otaku of sorts who likes to cosplay. I totally forgot that, even though that should be a major part of her. Think they touched upon it in her route? Hah! Well, maybe in the omake ero, haven't checked those, but that'd not help.


Next is the sub-heroine, after which I'm done. Not going to play the other two main routes. This could've been pretty good, but in the end they once again tried more than they really should've with the "plot". Aside of it just being more messy than it needs to be.
They need to coordinate their scenario better. It can't be that you get essentially the same scene but with opposite information, just because it's common vs. some character's route. This isn't new for them, so I feel it's high time they tackle that issue. Can't be that a character running in common route is not getting out of breath and gives a background for why that is, and then you enter some route and that very same character is now out of breath. It's minor, but these things add up and perhaps that's also what caused Nanami's route to have the problems it has. At least I didn't get the same feeling like in Senren Banka, where I felt that the heroines are better outside their route. (especially Yoshino could be quite fun outside of her route..) So in some way they improved..?

Yeah, it's way too long, so I didn't beat it. Not even close. But the 20h I played it were fun. That having been maybe 10% of its content however wasn't the most motivating thing.

The gameplay is actually pretty good. It's a simple system that is used VERY well and leads to potentially extremely satisfying and exciting battles. In very short: The stronger the enemy, the stronger you are. The more damage you take, the more TP you gain and the more high TP abilities you can use. Most of the actually good skills need TP, the better the more TP needed. So bossfights can be pretty fun as a result. You have 8 party members at a time, 4 active, which you can swap in any way you want (dead people included) before you start a turn. Important because for example MC can use a max TP cost revive all active party members, which stuns her for a turn in exchange.

My personal issue with it is just that if you play it for a while you'll realize the rpg maker limitations. The game has A LOT of characters, but the way you swap your actual party and whatnot is not very nice. The worst however is the item management. You amass a TON of shit which you shouldn't just throw away either, as item creation is a thing. The list gets LONG. And as such annoying.
I also wasn't a fan of the game deciding to actually tell a story after 10 hours. It's more of a game you'd play for the gameplay, if you ask me.

Twins have a habit of doing pic related, sometimes more and sometimes less extreme, so there's no space for MC kun. Even the ones existing with space for MC tend to be all over each other to the point you sometimes wonder why MC kun is even needed, aside of his dangling manhood. Then you remember that for Japan that's enough justification.

That was twin sisters. A twin sister route (as in, sister from protag) in itself is just more rare, because having a twin is in general more rare than a normal sister. They also have to be blood related, which is the biggest hurdle.

Finished Korehano. Definitely better than Azurite's first title, but it still has its flaws. Much shorter however, and yet still too long for the story it wanted to tell.

Korehano starts fairly interesting. While the eventual story isn't particularly deep in the end, it's well enough done to be entertaining. However the way it's told is getting progressively more annoying.
This game unlocks branches and as such "endings" in sets. See most of those and you unlock more. Repeat until at the end. The problem is that these branches aren't standalone routes or anything like that. "Endings" are for the most part along the lines of "and then something bad happened. The end" or "and then nothing happened anymore and time passed. The end". The next set of unlocked branches will then continue what was started before and eventually do the same. As a result it feels like you are playing several routes at once. This isn't very nice as you WILL get to see very similar events, just slightly different because of a different heroine being "main". Back to back to back. In addition, later unlocked branches also repeat previous stuff. A lot. And none of the copy and pasted stuff is actually automatically skipable. It's considered unread text. At the end, "new" branches feel like 80% known and/or copy and pasted. It really doesn't flow well.

To be honest, the story feels like it should be linear. The further you get, the heavier this feeling gets. The final part is also unfortunately too long without doing much for a good amount of time. That's hella weird given the (in my opinion nice) fast pacing before. There are also a bunch of story flaws at the end. One of them heavily reminded me of the first Azurite title That pseudo rape scene in chapter 4(?), which made me think that that one may not be on the writer or he just tried to "keep that style". The others are mostly convenient writing stuff.


In the end I'm mostly not agreeing with the game's structure, while the story is mostly alright. Though I'd assume many will agree that not getting the motive of the villain is weird. That still easily makes it better than Shinsou Noise, if you ask me. What however definitely was a major downgrade was the art. The last arc misses way too many sprites and the CG are generally weirdly and randomly used. The "faceless protag" part is also incredibly awful in this game. It's not even consistent, and just ugly. It's not a game where that'd fit either.

Someone here sure is pro death penalty.

After one ending I can say it hasn't fucked up completely yet, like Shinsou Noise does later on. But if that happens it'd probably be in the last route or something anyway.
The writing however is wonky (too much pointless narration interrupting flow and not allowing any room for you to fill in some gaps or think for yourself as everything is mentioned, explained in detail and "thought out" for you), coupled with way too obvious things that the cast conveniently overlook. Like, seriously obvious. It literally jumps into your face, while the cast will still need an hour or two to get there. I don't think writing like this works very well with (murder) mystery games. These games should strive to make you think and not leave no room for that and have characters struggle to realize the obvious.

When the characters don't chase the obvious, this can actually be fun. The story seems interesting enough as well, at least speaking now after my first route. That took a while. Hopefully it doesn't completely fuck up like Shinsou Noise though.

Honestly, I think in areas where that shit is normal, it's just "the hardest penalty". It's not about them dying, but rather about them getting the hardest penalty available. It's not like she ended up angry about that criminal being still alive after all this time "waiting" for them to get executed. This girl is all about "justice" and shit. If you commit a crime you should get the appropriate sentence for it, for her that's the most important thing.

That said, I haven't played her route yet, but I'd hope they don't actually make her pro death penalty in itself in a "these criminals should just all DIE" or whatever. The scene from the screen felt weird if there's no such thing where you live, yeah, but I think that one can still be just considered a nice showing of how things are where death penalty is considered normal and why that's a problem.

Ended Nillhana, wow that was a ride.
I started this because the cover looked interesting and I hit the jackpot, this is one of the golden doujinshis hidden in all the rpg shit of the doujinshis.
The art was quite nice even for a doujinshi and the story blew me away with the characters, like every character is a fucked up person but they are so well written and by some way you can empathize their dark feelings and attachments, I can't believe the writer only made nukiges before.
I recommend reading it if you want to take a break from moe shit (not saying moe shit is bad, moe is shit and so I am).
9/10 only because of the characters, story and the immersion feeling it gives.

He has strengths and weaknesses, and then there are his common themes you may or may not like.

I personally think that his SOL being as bad as it is already hurts a lot, and I don't like the whole child abuse themes he uses WAY WAY WAY too much either. If you'd play a drinking game where you take a shot every time something related to child abuse happens or gets mentioned, you'd probably regret it. But I do respect, that he is at least self-critical. His fuck ups in Higurashi for example are laughed at in some OVA for that, or talked about in Umineko as well.

Be careful with expecting something. Be happy even one arc/route is good. Be aware that the beginning and final arc/route (or main heroine's route) are usually the biggest offenders. CTRL exists, use it to save yourself time and headaches when it's bad.

Most good eroge out there have SOMETHING that hold them back. And if you use these simple steps, you'll go out of them with having had a good amount of fun. But if you are somehow still in the state where you, for example, don't want to skip any unread text, some otherwise pretty good works become suddenly a massive pain in the ass.
Pic related is an example there. The beginning takes a while to get going, as the writer really took his time to introduce the protag and how he lives, feels and so on and so forth, followed by a good look at the setting. It's not downright bad, but it takes a few hours to really get into it. The next issue is that all routes are extremely similar, and you are supposed to do them all if you want to get the final epilogue. (mostly something you'd want, if you like the main heroine) But due to the routes being so insanely similar, that'd be actually awful to go all through. The game is over 3mb, with the first playthrough not even being half of that. Part of the rest is left over common scenes, which are fine, but nobody likes to read 20h of copy and pasted plot with the girl swapped. As a result the EGS average reading time is also way lower than it should be for a 3mb+ VN. It's a common issue of this writer. I still think, there's a lot to like about his stuff if you aren't going through recycled content (you opinion may differ there of course). Doesn't make the issues nonexistent, but you can deal with them. Sometimes.

Even your posted screen is from a VN where stuff like this applies. That blondie game has a horrendous beginning. It makes zero sense what happens there (i.e. trained professionals not being able to catch a princess running, or a highschool student while he carries a girl?) and the way they get the protag into the setting is really forced and awkward. This gets even worse with the writer actually trying to justify things and acting as if the events happening are somewhat realistic. It's bad. Like really bad. But once you are a few hours in, how you got in no longer matters and it can even be pretty good.

Sounds like you're either playing games that are actually bad or you have massive ADHD. I've never felt like skipping text in a "good eroge". I understand skipping routes that were written by subwriters or people say that aren't that good, but randomly skipping text in the common makes no sense if neither of the former two conditions apply. At that point you're better off dropping the game completely and looking for something you enjoy all the time.

Better step up your Japanese and read Trianthology, Iwaihime, the untranslated eps of Higurashi... and form your own opinion. If anything, EOPs lack the more broad knowledge of his other works. But most JOPs have only read higurashi and umikeno anyway.

Having this in mind:
Some people didn't like the end of Umineko. It has mostly to do with the unreliable narrator and how some readers felt being led by the nose because they couldn't think by themselves. The answer was there on their faces all the time. The novels/manga supposedly placate that by being more clear about the happenings.

Japanese people in general don't like being told about the faults of their society one bit. Child abuse, greed over family, nationalism, hikikomori, you being a dumb sheep, etc. are very delicate subjects to talk about there in Japan. r07 is quite blunt about them. People seeking pure escapism might feel uncomfortable there, instead of using the reading to further get their brains working.

Moebutas and Masada fanboys might have a problem with r07 narrative because it's the total opposite in character treatment and fight narration.

tldr: the 'hack' thing is a meme. On the contrary he's a solid writer with his own style and trying to tell interesting stories beyond pure entertainment.

Sorry, I actually oversaid due to my hate of the VN, so my saying that his problems are worsen maybe wrong. Maybe it's true that RGD actually got rid many of them, but there still are though.
Objectively I think RGD is just a mediorcre work. If one like Higurashi enough, or just especially like these kind of story (without being bothered by r07 poor writing skill), they may find it enjoyable. But I didn't. Plus the characters are totally trash. Many of them make me feel like they're a bunch of 10 years old kids and kill them off wouldn't affect anything because if ryukishi-sama like it he will just resurrect them, which is because he wants all of his characters live happily in his own world.............

Does anyone know what happened to Jackson and Narahara anyway? Romeo pretty much transitioned to light novels but what about these two?

Another somewhat older VN, another drinking scene.

Speaking of the characters' ages, I always find it weird to see them refusing to drink in eroge because of age. I feel like that's been less of a problem in the past and these drinking scenes were more common. Maybe you'd need to change your intro message to "everyone is ages21+" or something by now because it's more looked at? But even then.

Remembered the Mahou Shoujo remake today, and it seems to be pretty much done. (version above 1, not updated for some weeks) So I'm trying it now. You hear quite nice things about it, just not about the system. The remake is on a much better SRPG engine, so it shouldn't have the same issues. In fact, the option menu already looks very promising, with speed options for moving and whatnot, skipping enemy phases or just speeding it up.. and so on.

So if anyone else was kinda interested in this, but didn't touch it because of the previous issues with the engine, now may be the time.

In case you don't know about it: It's about (mostly?) middle school girls getting involved in mahou shoujo business. In a bad way. All ages, but I expect loads of drama, deaths and "what are we even fighting for?!?!?" when former friends start to consider the magical girls as monsters as well or something. Oh and it's free.

So far it's not exactly Madoka-like. Dark magical girl is older than Madoka anyway though, and you can argue that Madoka isn't even really part of the magical girl genre. It kinda fakes it at first and then does something more or less entirely different. Not that I know if this game here is going to stay in the genre.
For example, not sure how chuuni the whole thing is going to be, given that people seem to very much see the enemies, destruction and obviously also notice the people dying. And magical girl (the genre) is supposed to be chuuni-esque in that regard, with hidden fight against a threat that most people are unaware of. I'd assume that's where the chuuni genre came from in the first place.

So that's a no, huh?
I'm glad at least that the crashing seems random so far so right now my primitive """fix""" is just an ahk script that autosaves every couple of minutes so I never lose too much progress at once. Here's hoping there's no point in the game that crashes me no matter what.

IIRC your computer timezone needs to be Tokyo Standard Time. I recommend writing a batch file to launch the game with that changes the time zone to and back for you. If you want I can dig mine out from my external.

For your convenience. Put this in a text file, save it as a .bat file, put it next to ef_first.exe and run it to launch.
I'm also going to say that the first tale is a real drag but the second tale had some good moments. Whether or not those moments justify the drag will vary. I'm personally 50/50.
