Re: Games with agendas and propaganda games

One necessary but slightly irritating meme in a dating sim or ren'ai game is that having a relationship is good, and by extension, non-relationship is bad. In the majority of such games, ending up with no one is a Bad End. Unfortunately necessary to the medium, but it still reinforces a somewhat ugl...

Pearl Pink 3DS

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-AkEwPwn54 My gut is telling me that Marketing is talking down to girls again (and this particular invention will nuke itself six ways to Sunday), but my brain (or at least the part that's into conspiracy theories) tells me that it's actually being marketed to parents...

Re: Starting Anime Club*

I remember that my HS anime club used Slayers. Lodoss War would also be a good one.

Tenchi Muyo! and Ah! My Goddess might also work.

Stick to the classics for your initial shows.

Re: Anime is dying, ㅋㅋ..

The section of anime that's dying in the gutter is the shonen fighter. A lot of the people who were fans of DBZ and Naruto when they first came out are now thoroughly disenchanted with them, and they aren't drawing as many new teenage boys as they used to. That said, when you look at the 00s, you se...

Re: Japanese Honorifics Question

"-kun" from a teacher to a female student is not unknown usage, albeit not strictly correct usage either. You (the OP) are the writer, so think of how the teacher would act; if the teacher is strictly formal, she might use -san for everyone. Using -kun for a new student indicates a classroom with a ...

Re: Why, IMO, it's hard finding a game to like as a female g

If you want freedom of speech, that comes with the right to say offensive things, and the right to be offended by them! The corollary to that, however, is that there's the right to ignore people being offended by you. The ability to let people shout in the wind so long as cash keeps coming, or to s...

And yeah, there's no difference between abandonware and warez, legally speaking. (IANAL and all) There may be situations, however, where nobody can sue over a piece of abandonware because nobody owns the license.

Re: Why, IMO, it's hard finding a game to like as a female g

That's called sexism. Well, there's your problem then. But if sexism is the root of the problem, I'm curious how you think that females proving that they can be a market too will change that. At best, VNs might seriously break across the Atlantic, and I'm skeptical on that score; the gaming industr...

Re: Why, IMO, it's hard finding a game to like as a female g

The idea that gamers of any stripe "should" be able to communicate with the larger companies is, unfortunately, somewhat idealistic. In the modern gaming world, the objective is usually not to make a game that gamers want , but a game that Marketing thinks it can sell . Fanbases are notoriously unpl...

Re: Magical 18 or Adult Age

Sexuality isn't in the logic; a person, no matter their gender, shouldn't be made to be a parent at such-and-such age. =P Though I do realize there are holes in this logic to begin with. It would ban all sex under the limit, I believe. Heterosexual sex is somewhat more likely to lead to pregnancy t...

Re: Magical 18 or Adult Age

how old does a person have to be before you're allowed to impregnate them/make them a parent? Logically, then, the homosexual age of consent could be lower because you can't get pregnant that way! :) (I know at least at some point in England the opposite was true.) Age of consent laws differ betwee...
