Re: Are Visual Novels Becoming Too Much of The Same Thing?

It's a trope because it works. High school is a place where a guy is in daily contact with a large number of unattached females who presumably might be interested in him. Loser guys who can't get any love when they come in, meanwhile, are, um, easy for the target audience to relate to. So it's easy...

Re: When an image becomes too offensive?

I don't think anything can have a set 'offensive rating' because isn't that a personal oppinion? As long as you don't go around drawing pictures of Mohammad, I don't think you really will have to worry about being 'too offensive'... Except when it comes to marketing. When it comes to marketing, offe...

Re: Favorite FF

Eugh, I much perfered Amano's art direction to Nomura's. Everything in FFVII just seemed so bleh.

Re: Most Surprising Plot Twists in a VN

I really would have loved Princess Waltz... If It had been more divergant and less 'Kinetic Story' with a 'choose a sex scene' option near the end. The most suprising plot twist for me was in Tsukihime when You find out killing Ciel and becoming a psychopathic murderer is considered a bad end. And a...

Re: Tokimeki Memorial 4 letter campaign

If the get enough letters and or statements, then they'd have to reconsider the profitability of a translation. That'd be all they would (and should) care about. I'd think the best thing to do would be to get a professionally manage poll going to get accurate numbers as to how many people would buy,...

Re: [NaNoRenO] Robot

Don't forget Western Mecha (Battle Tech | MechWarrior) as one of the styles of Mecha. Also, what are the uses for Mecha, are they strictly military? Are there comercial non-combat models? Are they used for entertainment (arenas competitons etc). How much of the culture does it permeate? Is it as pop...

Re: Your most favorite obscure game?

Legend of Mana. Oh god, Legend of Mana. I don't think I've ever seen a game more under appreciated and unfairly criticized as that one. The crazy thing is that it's a part of a relatively well known series, best known for the popular SNES game Secret of Mana. It just happened to get close to no lov...

Re: Worst or most disappointing game you ever bought

Oh man the music for Dirge of Cerberus was amazing. The game was crappy though so I just bought the soundtrack and skipped the fanservice. Fan service? What? Where? The entire game was fan-service, as in making a spin off without really needing one, simply for the fact it would sell. Sorry, I shoul...

Re: Writing about other character's memories

Actually this occurance isn't as hard to overcome one you think of it in a new perspective. Clearly if you're writing a story and telling it in a 1st-person narritive then your lead character will be oblivious to thoughts of other characters, however this is not to say you can't allow the reader to...

Re: Obtaining one's artistic talent

This also suggests you don't respect your artists. Maybe your artists also don't respect you. One does not need to perform trades with a person one respects; trading is essentially saying "I know you're wrong but I also know that you're too stubborn to ever give it up, so I'll make some concession ...

Re:

the materia system... and really great characters... Because a snarky white guy with a big sword and a troubled past is really so original?

Re: How do you feel about Nintendo shutting down a fan-movie

BUT WHY ISNT SONICHU IN IT!!!

I think we will see a general decline is quality as companies rush to get 'casual gamers', but once they thouroughly saturate the market, you'll see some companies popping up to meet the nich market of 'old school' gamers.

Re: WTF, Namco

Well there have been unofficial translation patches made for some of the Shin Megami Tensei games that were made on the PS1. I'm sure if there was enough demand one could bring together a team to make a translation patch for some of those older games. Also, you could always learn Japanese. Hardest p...

Re: Your most favorite obscure game?

I liked Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth (Even though it was retardedly hard), and Kartia... Those were fun. I also liked Terranigma, it would have been popular but it came out when the SNES was pretty much dead... I'm always suprised that Xenogears never got as popular as Xenosaga, and Vagrant Story w...
