Finally completed amazing grace and what a mediocre trash it turned out be despite being one of the few critically acclaimed VNs of 2018. First of all, the most annoying thing that almost made me drop this kusoge is dull repetitive prose. Writer just fucking paraprashes same fucking thing literally hundreds of times. The game had good ideas for being a unique mystery experience and but it ended being uninteresting and felt mechanical. Writer doesn't even bother crafting interesting scenario but his focus is always on setting up random 伏線 for chapter 12(aka 伏線回収祭り). Even then, there are some lazy plot conveniences and holes. Characters act ultra dumb for some fucked up reason. mystery aspect itself is rather simple that you'd already get general idea of what's going on and motivations way before reveal.

Someone wrote a big review on EGS about Newrin, complaining about plotholes. Everything he mentioned in that regard was wrong. And Newrin definitely attracted the moe crowd. I thought it would be a moege as well before I picked it up. There's some truth to this.

Mirai Radio however is really not that great. Still. Considering how well games like Amazing Grace and whatnot get received, you gotta wonder: Is it deserving the score it got? In my opinion it's okay, but in my opinion there's also a LOT of overrated stuff around. So it probably doesn't deserve this low score. I mean, really, the biggest flaws the game has aren't things most people will even recognize. (weak science, the setting making not too much sense if you think about it and so on) Minori's Trinoline was also full of wrong understandings of androids by the writers and a lot of wrong "science" as such. Did anyone care? I did, maybe another anon or two also did, but that's it.

Newrin was sort of crock because of its bland characters, setting that doesn't actually do anything new and only touches the time period on the very surface level, main plot with lackluster twists and very arbitrary drama in the final route that exists only because the writer decided the ending needed a so called emotional finale, even if the same exact thing wasn't a cause for drama in the side routes. While apart from that I can't recall too many parts that make you bang your head on the keyboard there's really nothing that stands out either. Lavi route in the middle of game was a very slight peak but that's about it.

Though I completely agree that bloated games are an actual problem, I think it's bit of a strawman if you think some people gave those shorter games lower scores primarily because of their length and not because of their other lackluster aspects. Besides, if you go by overall score the games aren't even ranked *that* low as >>20794299 shows.

Did we play the same game? There was only one bland character, and she was bland because that was literally her plot thing. I could understand, if some of the characters were too out there for some people, but.. bland is definitely the wrong word. I actually remember some being not very happy about pic related eventually becoming a bonus ero-scene, though it was fitting enough in my opinion.

>There was only one bland character,
For me it was the opposite: one good character while the others kind of ended up being a grey mess.

I actually liked Lavi and found her somewhat interesting because she's only one of the past characters who participates in driving the main plot forward even in routes other than her own, rather than being kept in the dark for the whole story like everyone else. Her mother was also a complete enigma who ends up being indirectly responsible for one inexplainable plot device and I'm still disappointed it's left completely hanging. I mean story wise leaving other heroines out of the loop is given a justification since the protagonist and co. don't want to mess up the past more, but it also meant their character arcs often ended up being rather flimsy SoL with girl, followed by tangential drama rather than something integral to the time travel plot: shit like Haru being angry at Alice for lying to her or the completely out of the left field sister twist that's foreshadowed maybe scene or two before the actual reveal in Emmy and Alice routes.

Other characters in general didn't really stand out. Protagonist is basically a plank, the one villain the game has is as one-dimensional as it gets, I can't even remember anything about Yotsuko other than the repeated measuring gag and the sudden and silly plague drama, while Alice, Emmy and Haru's entire characterization could be summed up as "what if historical person was actually a cute anime girl archetype". Alice in particular feels very shoddy despite supposedly being the main heroine that the whole plot revolves around, so the finale doesn't really manage to evoke an emotional oomph. Really, the game would've been so much better if it threw some kind of whammy and had Lavi actually be the real main heroine.

>> No.20795116

I just realized that Amazing Grace is supposedly written by the duo responsible for the MagiCha and the complete travesty that was Paradise Ocean. So did Shigeta and that other guy manage to redeem themselves after the latter and it's actually good or something?

Also the premise on the website seems half-interesting, but I want to confirm if it means the game actually carries the main plot throughout or if it's like MagiCha and Paradise Ocean with over 90% of the game being inconsequential SoL and ichaicha with with actual plot crammed at the very very end. And if it is the latter is the SoL at least good?

Hi, JoP Squad. I finished the Evenicle II 体験版 today.

pros:

+ Game looks still amazing, even though they dropped the Senran Kagura Artist and Minnaraken and instead use Orion (from the Rance Series)

+ The main character is still a pervert but not as much an instinct driven dork like Aster. Rather he thinks a bit more, albeit he is still a perverted doctor who makes girls orgasm and heals them that way.

+ They finally found a fitting music score for rape scenes. In Evenicle 1 the rape scenes had some kind of ironic/jazzy ring to them, but this one is actually a bit darker and atmospheric

+ The 体験版 contains about 6 or 7 scenes, of which 2 are darker rape scenes, while the others are vanilla sex with cute girls

+ the right amount of Onii-chan and fetish talk

negative:

- The game has way less humour than Evenicle 1, because the protagonist doesn't resonate well with sarcasm or he actually have a bit of brain to not step from one bad situation into the other

- The girls are so far boring. One wears a mask and doesn't uncover herself in the trial and the other main girl is dumb as rocks and thinks that sex is fine, because its for procreation but touching and handholding is lewd and unfitting.

- The game teases that there will be a strong emphasis on pregnancy, but the problem here is that I am not sure whether that pregnancy has an effect on the game. (offspring that joins your party maybe?) - only fetishizing pregnancy would suck

- The japanese is pisseasy to read outside of some slang terms and terminology. Not really a challenge. Even eops could read that shit with

- Doesn't crossreference nearly as much as the first evenicle. Jokes are often really flat.

- the game is still really accessible even for people who don't really play JRPGs, its rather easy and an entry level title, but a challenge is nowhere to be found

Finished all three routes of Monobeno HE without the after stories. It needed to finish the first two after stories to get to the third one but I was too tired playing this game and felt it might spoil the third, so just moved on. The third route was a bit better than the first two but I didn't like the loli (I had expected it to be less) and the protag was a bit annoying(wimp), but ok.

Overall, the writing was too fluffy I guess and it was too long. Although I didn't need a dictionary, but I still must have spend 60+ hrs I think. The bg cg's were nice, but character sprites were average and bg music was only good, which is low for an eroge standards. I don't think its worth the read for the setting and look, unless you're into loli stuff I guess.

I'm not really sure if I should read any after story later on (too tired rn). Maybe I may read the third after story, but its 20 episodes and the thirds ending feels like an ending

Not sure what to play next, I want to play something medium-length and good like from around 2000-2006, with a good bgm, cg, and without much things to hate .
The last few games (this, Duel Savior, 残念な姉と幸福論) have annoyed me quite a bit. I guess I'll do some digging in EGS, but its difficult to know with the rating and description as you'd never know what pops up without spoilers. The ratings are vndb are too less reliable also

Back to Paddenicle. Not like that's that much better. The entire game feels like it wants to extend playtime at any cost. Feels like a parody of the worst kind of jrpg, where the bad shit is exaggerated with having to run between several towns/locations a million of times, while it gives you a teleport to only SOME of them, so you have to run all the damn time. And the story is obviously nothing but filler too, where whatever is your goal is probably not even mattering, till you hit the end of a chapter. Unfortunately I don't think that was their goal.

You could probably show a girl in a sexy position, not necessarily naked or even half-naked, and let the imagination of the reader run wild instead of awkwardly showing positions and whatnot that restrict writing the rest of the scene. It'd improve things... if the scene writing wouldn't be so lackluster all the time as well.
It's kinda funny, but good ero in eroge is hella rare. It's pretty low effort. Though, to be fair, it's like that with most ero. As long as the consumer gets off, it's all okay. Reminds me of one manga I once read, that had horrible art but still managed to be sexier than most things with better art. Forgot the name and pretty much everything about it though.

Because it seems like they don't give a shit about eroge players and don't want to be in the eroge business at all.

They started with 恋と選挙とチョコレート, managed to convince someone to make an anime adaption for it, and then tried ride on that publicity to sell their all-ages game いますぐお兄ちゃんに妹だっていいたい. It sold terribly though so they went back to eroge for their next game, 蒼の彼方のフォーリズム . But they announced an anime adaption for it before the game even got released so I really have to question their priorities. Despite that, it managed to sell pretty well, so now instead of releasing a fandisk like any other eroge maker would do, they release a gacha mobile game for it instead to milk more money out of their fans. 3 years later they finally release a FD but no one cares anymore by then.

Finished Sorceress Alive. My experience of the game could be briefly summed up as
-Normal part: Wow this game is shit
-Real deal starts: Holy shit, they’re not pulling any punches. This game is fantastic.
-Real deal continues: Fooled you! Oh my god it keeps getting worse by the minute. Please make it stop.

To elaborate:

First 4 heroine routes are pointless padding that do nearly nothing to push the main plot forward and just give each heroine very sudden relationship upgrade developments, where the change of whether a particular heroine herself falls in love with the protagonist or fully supports the heroine of another route hooking up with him instead, or if they forcibly try to butt in and set up a harem along with another heroine flows as naturally from the common route as me ever talking with a member of the opposite sex. The game could’ve easily trashed those routes entirely or condensed them into one, especially since main plot wise the order of tournament battles stay to same. Plus, if you’re going to give us a harem just make it a fucking harem rather than this half-assed shit, I mean even plot wise all heroines openly crave the protagonist’s mana bank dick anyways in most heroine routes as well, and to top it off men being cum banks to multiple wives is not only accepted, but the motherfucking norm in-universe.

Akina’s route was pretty unremarkable though it fleshed out the tournament part the most, Yuzuriha’s route was at least half-decent even if it’s a generic fantasy discrimination / witch hunt plot that’s been done a thousand times already, apart from the silly convenient asspull ending that also conflicts with true route reveals. Mia’s was boring shit where it’s harem except not really lol, and I became very close to dropping the game entirely in Azuria route for the umpteenth generic moege-type arranged marriage drama with an evil fat fuck who uses his connections to be a dickhead. Not to mention it completely clashes against the previously established rules of the game world because every other part of the game is used to constantly point out the setting and political landscape as a fucking matriarchy. Naturally the “I’m gonna leave the team boohoo, no wait I don’t” drama gets recycled in every fucking route as well.

But what about the real deal part? I actually got hyped as hell at the start due to the game throwing a few curve balls at you and shit hitting the fan, basically the game briefly dips into more serious bits but then it completely manages to destroy all semblance of tension by a convenient and sudden time loop reveal that allows the game to resurrect its characters, except it's actually just a dream world so it's even worse. And then I completely lost it when they brought up fate and rebirth. Why? The whole civil war thing could've easily driven the entire main plot on its own and delivered other reveals without dabbling into those type of cheap hijinks. At that moment the game broke for me and I realized we’re definitely gonna get some convenient secret bad guy defeated through the power of friendship and a sappy everyone lives happily ever after ending anyways and stopped giving a fuck, despite game's later flimsy attempts of raising the stakes again by saying the final time is in real world so no repeats, as if it wasn’t obvious by that point that the writer doesn’t have the balls to actually deliver anything dramatic.

Actually, I take back wishing for a harem route. This is the stupidest shit ever, like holy moly this game is so stupid I’m not sure if it ever wanted me to take itself seriously. Main plot twists are all too obvious and many things are revealed only when plot important people suddenly decide to fill the protagonist in, which they didn’t do before for an arbitrary reason. And of course we get convenient long flashbacks explaining everything rather than the game gradually pacing any of this shit. You'd have to be retard not to realize the setting. Main villain reveal was also unsurprising. I mean Yuumi is the only main girl who supposedly doesn’t have an original equivalent, she is inexplicably last boss tier power level and gets a bit too much into fighting, plus by that point the game simply ran out of characters who could act as “surprising evil all along reveal” so it's not hard to guess. And the "I'm bored lol" excuse is used to give the protagonist and co. a fighting chance. But wait, she too is just a victim of the crystal, because fuck you.

I’d really want to say that at least the action was good, but the game spends so much time either with SoL or characters just explaining shit and there’s only a handful of interesting battles with proper stakes. At most I can say that some music was pretty neat and graphically the game manages to deliver, but that's about it.

There is technically some harem-like stuff as well and the protagonist is super popular throughout the whole story, but the game keeps constantly dilly dallying around whether it really wants to be a proper harem game or not practically forever, with all the heroines constantly being ready for dicking but protagonist himself being a faggot about the whole issue, sometimes even converting the heroine of the route into wanting to keep the protagonist exclusively to themselves despite a said heroine previously being okay with harem idea because that's how things usually work in the setting. If you're talking H-scenes, the closest you get are two non-penetrative ones in Mia route, but story wise it ends up being one girl route after all. Even when much later on the game quite literally says "this is the harem route lol" (several times in fact), instead of actually giving a harem ending it wraps shit up by presenting several one girl endings again.

Personally I'm not bothered by whether there's proper harems or not, so I'm saying the complaint more in the context of the game's setting and how condensing the first 4 routes into one hypothetical harem route could've worked perfectly to remove a fuckton of needless padding, and when the game finally presents the idea of harem it's given a flimsy excuse, yet it doesn't even go properly through with it.

Considering I'm early in the game and still haven't started the heroine routes I'll refrain from some spoilers but considering the setting has shit like:
>matriarchy setting
>men being only one tenth of the population
>men rarely displaying magic talent and if they do they get adopted by noble houses
>at the academy men are mainly taught the ways of the bridegroom meanwhile women are taught magic
>men who can use magic are used for breeding purposes their place in the society still being lower than women but they tend to have many wives since the magic talent and power(basically the amount you can convert)are hereditary.
And despite all this you're telling me it has the cliche marriage drama archetype with some fat guy and it's still not haram?

That's unfortunately the truth. Japan loves crappy not mattering flashbacks. Luckily you can just ctrl them most of the time, or at least skim very fast.

I still remember Aqua there. I think it had an over 400kb long one, where maybe 20kb matter. 5 minutes after progressing past a cliffhanger of a route which needed 2 other routes to be cleared. A combination straight out of hell, that ruined a perfectly fine game. Ok, perfectly fine minus a certain voice-actor (Maki Izumi). Oh and this flashback also had a different protag. The guy appears in the main-story, and is voiced there, but loses it in the flashback. This flashback. Just remembering it I get fucking angry again.
I wonder if there are actually eroge using flashbacks well. Often it feels like retarded padding where you get all the information you knew anyway, or that could be just told to you much better without a flashback.

Ended 9sorairo, quite late as I was waiting for 9haruiro to be released to start playing the 9 series.
I really at the start thought it was another author because the level of 9sorairo is miles away from the first 9, like the first 9 was average at best (wasn't bad tho) but sorairo was very good as in story (even when short length it was quite engaging at the climax points and mysteries) and the heroine, even if it's subjective, wasn't comparable with the flat moe heroine of kokonotsu, with Tanezaki Atsumi having an outstanding voice acting even without my prejudice as is my favourite seiyuu (I think it's the first time I saw her doing that many types of voices in one game), and her true end h-scenes were comedy gold, I didn't laugh that much in h-scenes since the Rinko h-scenes from senshinkan, and even them weren't comparable to sorairo h-scenes lol.
Now I'm looking forward for haruiro to see if the author can maintain the level and have a good use of the plot twists he left at the end.

SorcAlive could've been genuinely great if it just focused more on building the coup d'état plot rather than almost instantly blowing its load by throwing in cheap and generic plotge 101 elements like time loop / all events so far were just simulated predictions of possible futures lol into the mix. The game also mood whiplashes very badly with the start of the true route being noticeably darker, but then tonally changing back to how it was like in the first half.

I think someone compared it to Princess Witches. I hated that part there as well. First you get a cast suited for comedy, which then somehow needs to work in a serious setting. Which obviously didn't work. By the end of the serious part you got somewhat used to it, but then it was right back to the dumb comedy.
Some people seem to be more open for this kinda thing I guess. Princess Witches was quite popular as well back then.

To be fair while you are not wrong that is the least of what you will be criticizing like the other anon as you finish this completely.

also, what the hell is up with narou WN comparisons? I don't believe these people read narou WNs at all these days do they? How are they mistaking them for Academy harems which are a thing of the past. Nobody uses boob grabs, barely anybody uses tournament templates and so on. Narou stuff have their own dumb cliches, in case of 転移, for example the most common ones are like Arifureta where the MC is transported together with his class and ends up being discriminated then slowly surviving in the dungeon he gets thrown to, making his nariagari by farming monsters and then adventuring and creating his harem etc.
Then there's also stuff like MC ending up as dungeon master or story focusing on kingdom building and 内政 or just the MC living comfortably without any conflict whatsoever the so called 'slow life'(which is basically moege equivalent), then you also have revenge edge wanks, aimless adventure types like 槍使いと黒猫 and many more.

By the way I haven't even mentioned 転生 templates or things like otome isekai but anyway, people who compare it to narou stories and somehow find similarity there have no idea what they're on about. Besides, the funny thing about narou MCs is that in many cases their do get to bang their entire harem or women they tend to meet in their adventures and not even as harem ends but sometimes in the middle of the story.
I'm honestly baffled, just where are they still finding academy/urban templates?

My biggest beef with how Sorceress Alive does it is due to how much potential it squandered, as the start of the Alive route itself is pretty damn great.

Two party members turn out to be betrayers who played the long game all along and start a coup along with new characters, killing the queen and causing a civil war. It’s followed by a 2nd tonally different OP movie rolling in and drumming up the hype further. Protagonist ends up escaping with loyalist heroines and holes up in the school with other students, preparing for war. The protagonist’s tactical skills? He’s appointed their leader so he finally gets to be useful. The 4v4 tournament sport? It was all preparation for this war, as the army also gets assigned to squads of four. Then there’s also opponents from previous routes on loyalists' side who are no doubt going to get further characterization as well, hell even one prick from a previous route gets a line commending the protagonist’s skills. Maybe the two previous side heroines end up replacing the two betrayers? Apparently the war is not going on loyalists’ favor outside the school so we've already set up a nice underdog situation, some loyalists got executed off-screen by the rebels / went MIA and as a result everyone’s emotions are really heating up for a good war story.

Everything in the previous routes was building up to this stuff, right? Right? WRONG. Let's just instantly throw in cheap recycled plot elements from this genre that serve to destroy all semblance of tension and also allow us to bring everyone back because obviously we can't have anything bad happen to our characters for real, downgrade the protagonist back to a plot device who doesn't actually do anything of his own accord, and wrap it up with two characters showing up and finally infodumping everything that's going on through several flashbacks, and also this is apparently a moege again so go fetch that harem Kouki except not really. More flashbacks abound.

It's then followed by a cheap self-sacrifice by our beloved plot device protagonist when he finally touches the convenient evil crystal that's responsible for everything bad in the world, except wait, it was actually a trap by the real obvious main villain whose driving motivation was to fuck the protagonist. Not for the protagonist’s humongous mana reserves to achieve something else, she just really wanted to fuck him. Then she briefly explains she was actually immortal Mrs. Hitler all along who has committed mind control, human experimentation and started pointless wars for generations off screen, all for the pure lulz by the way. But wait, she too is just mind-controlled by the evil crystal that feeds on negative emotions! Cue protagonist getting saved, joining forces with all the heroines and power of friendship beating the main villain who is very sporting about letting it be a fair 1v5 fight and letting the good guys prepare themselves, followed by a “bittersweet” ending with the villain dying in protagonist’s arms and everyone else living happily ever after. Technically the villain too because she gets reincarnated along with a reincarnation of the protagonist.

The more I think about it the madder I get.

Played through Futarigurashi. Well that was a weak ending. So they're not even gonna bring up Mei's legal parents' reaction to her escape? New school? Though according to EGS apparently the sequel / fan disc at least has maybe some stuff about the latter, though I'm not really in the mood to play it.

Anyways, overall completely unremarkable and I'm a bit surprised at the high EGS reviews praising it as "not just your usual doujin loli title". I'm not sure if even people specifically looking for the fetish of fucking your grade schooler niece will be satisfied either, as characterization wise in my opinion the game didn't really manage to properly emphasize Mei being a kid and in general she doesn't really stand out from your usual eroge heroines. It feels like the game focused too much on the protagonist's personal trauma (often delivered through black screen narration) and loads of H-scenes at the cost of spending time characterizing Mei herself, or even giving us more SoL scenes in between. Dealing with her dead parents induced trauma is kind of shoved towards the very end and receives much less screen time than the protagonist's personal issues, despite the fact it could've perhaps been used to at least explain how Mei got to being un-childlike, or something.

At least the censored randoseru CG got a hearty chuckle out of me.
Story and general setting wise this reminded me very much about Akabei Soft's Futamawari from last year, with a similar pairing of loners, age gap, living (mostly) under same roof and so on, though in that game's case both the heroine's age and familial relation were obviously much more deeply trenched in the safe zone.
