At its core, FSN has a pretty simple concept... 7 magicians (Masters) each summon one legendary hero (Servant) to fight in the Holy Grail War. Once the other six Servants are defeated, the Holy Grail appears and both Servant and Master get one wish granted. One Servant for each of the seven classes ...

Well, I'm not sure about a "hero of justice"... That's the major conflict in UBW, Archer no longer believes in Shirou's ideals anymore, basically fed up with them. So of course, it's gonna be cool when they duel it out. I'm glad we'll get to play the Fate route soon (once again, thank you Mirror Moo...

Luckily for us english-speakers that Mirror Moon's finished up it's translation for the Fate scenario... Once the patch is released, we actually will be able to play the game (now if they'd only start the Tsukihime beta...) I guess I liked this show, there were some good parts and some bad. Episode ...

Installers look nice, but I think that's about it. I prefer the unpack-and-go style that the zipped games have. It's pretty convenient to just be able to unzip it and then start playing right away. While the installer isn't that annoying, it isn't instant like a zipped game. One other note : My user...

I'd be willing to give it a shot, if you feel comfortable with leaving your script in the hands of an unknown. It'd be a good chance to get familiar with Renpy before I start on my own projects. (Although, maybe I wouldn't be the best choice... upcoming events may hinder my availability due to lack ...

I agree with everything that's been said so far, but maybe you should be careful trying to immitate the style of these games. Take Higurashi. It proves that excellent graphics aren't a requirement for an excellent game. As mentioned above, the characters are misproportionate and have only four finge...

Well episode 9 is episode 14 (of 14) chronologically, therefore it's sort of the season finale, or so I've read. And even though nothing happened, it was a really good episode. Probably my favorite episode so far (excluding the Movie episode... I still haven't gotten over how awesome that one was)

Where's the rest of it?!?! Ahh! The suspense! Anyway, I liked it and am eagerly looking forward to the rest of it. All of your works have a simple elegance to them that's hard to find, and this is no exception. I downloaded (and am still playing) the Dream Chasers RPG so it's definetly nice to get a...

you can try Virtual Dub Mod... http://virtualdubmod.sourceforge.net/ With that, you can open an .avi file, go to the stream list, and export the audio as a .wav file Then all you'd need to do is convert it to whatever file type you prefer, and maybe cut out any extra audio somehow, for example if yo...

Don't let the first episode throw you off... The show really starts with episodes 2 and 3.

I'm gonna post it here, since it's related, and i really didn't feel like making a new topic... I've noticed (as I am sure other forum members have) that PyTom's avatar flashes really fast.

It's really about getting to see the cast dance... There's something magical about getting to see them all dance, especially Yuki and Kyon even more so, since they would be the last people you would expect to see dancing...

but that's just my take on it...

I wholeheartedly believe that Suzumiya Haruhi will be the best show this season. I agree Utawarerumono is definetly a good show with a good story, and will probably have a more profound and lasting emotional impact once it's all over,but its presentation seems a little plain to me. The art is fine, ...

Doesn't really matter what it's about... Haruhi's already got you... hehehe... The short version is basically about Kyon having to put up with Haruhi's crazy antics... but there's a lot more to it than that. A lot more. In fact, that description doesn't even do the show justice... I definetly sugges...
