Re: Have I been conned?

No, they just won't take any steps that count. They're completely unable to. I'm looking over Buy.com's seller policies, and it doesn't say anything about having to be a registered business. It does say you have to provide valid personal information and they have the right to perform background chec...

Re: Have I been conned?

I just cut this down to the part that matters. The bottom-line = BUY.COM IS NOT THE SELLER. They're a third party facilitator that brings the buyer and seller together in this case. Buy.com did NOT sell him the bootleg. A vender who uses Buy.com as a platform sold him the bootleg. Yes, Buy.com is n...

Re: Have I been conned?

It's not practical, because it's too hard to track them down. It's not necessarily practical to hunt them to the ends of the earth, but it's practical to hit the low-hanging fruit, like getting them removed from aggregation sites like buy.com - because that should take them all of ten minutes and d...

Re: Impossibility Calculations

What about a games journalist, whose job is to play and study games who happens to focus on eroge? And if he also happens to play on his own time.

Just an idea. [Obviously only possible in Japan, as there's not enough eroge here to warrant a consistent publication.]

Re: Have I been conned?

Sure enough, I finally received my product. It's a counterfeit alright: top corner of the box is the Fx logo, identified as a counterfeit brand on the Pirate Anime FAQ (http://www.digital.anime.org.uk/piratefaq.html#qual) :( It's late tonight, but tomorrow I'm going to start on my path to correct t...

Well, that's all kinds of lame. XP
Subconcious memory editing to make the experience sound better than it was on my part? XD

Re: Love in mainstream video games

Love Hina Again had an even worse ending than the series. I think the only one of the OVAs that was good was the Christmas special. The rest attempted to replace story with fanservice and failed. Correction: The OVAs never covered Keitaro's wedding. It just ended with the annex exploding and Keitar...

Re: Love in mainstream video games

Now, if you're going to talk about bad endings, then I'm going to have to bring up the Love Hina anime. Talk about an anti-climatic conclusion after all that... Only if you didn't watch the OAV, which was pretty much just three additional episodes to the main series, that covered the ending arc of ...

Re: Have I been conned?

What they do is technically illegal, but it's just not practical for anyone to care. Most of the time when it comes down to it, they'll never find the people who actually run the operation. It's certainly practical for the copyright holders to care, since those people are encroaching upon their mar...

Re: Have I been conned?

Gah....guess I should've listened when they said "If something seems too good to be true, it is." and did my research beforehand. I'm going to start dropping e-mails around to a few distributors pointing them out. I'm sure they'll be more than happy to have a few words with the people behind sphiat...

I don't think so. (Spoiler for the end of Half-Life: Episode 2)
For one thing, it would be repetititive.)
That's why no one expects it.
But they should.

Re: Love in mainstream video games

Final fantasy and other heavily story-driven games are all easy picks. What about the relationship with Alyx in Half life 2? I like it because it's so subtle. Alyx expresses her feelings in really minute ways. Like the hug in the beginning of Episode 1 and she's grown more open about her feelings i...

Re: Mirai Games Recruiting

I feel pretty confident that my group can finish this. However, there are some key positions open, such as character design and CG artists. We are also looking for graphic and sound programmer, depending on if we're going to use Ren'Py as core or making our own from scractch. If anyone is intereste...

Re: Mirai Games Recruiting

Agreed with above. You'll get far more gratification from making something that's truly your own anyways.

Bible Black and Discipline were mentioned.
Also try DIVIDEAD, which is A.) A classic, and B.) the only time I've ever been scared of a porn game.
