Re: Voice Acting and Protagonists with Changeable Names?

Thank you for these ideas, everyone! It's all very helpful! It seems like simply omitting the name is the best thing to do. That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure if people find that awkward or not. I imagine the voice actor would just skip the name, but then that kind of defeats the purpose of cu...

Re: Lunar Chime [GxB] [Mystery] [Fantasy] [Historical] [NaNo

Alright, I reached the end of the demo! I played through twice and got the bad ending as well. The music you chose was really, really nice. It fit the game well and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also like the GUI. The textbox and the choice boxes are pretty. My only complaint is that with the white tex...

Re: Voice Acting and Protagonists with Changeable Names?

Well, you could just leave the name entirely out there: Actually, I have something for you. Generally, when a game contains voice acting, they use nicknames in the place; like leader, or partner, or pal if they have to. Hope this helps! You're right, I could leave the name out in that line, but the...

Voice Acting and Protagonists with Changeable Names?

In a game where the protagonist has a custom name, but the game is voice acted, how should you deal with spoken lines that contain the character's name? Is it better for the protagonist to have a set name in a game with voice acting to avoid this dilemma? For example: The line says: "Actually, (play...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

I didn't understand the rest of your argument so I'm not going to reply to it. By the way, I like the subtle attack on my game. Very mature. I wasn't attacking your game alone, I mean using "Otome game, school life comedy" as a description goes for most of them. However I did use your game as an ex...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

Again, you seem to think we are complaining about "Other games." The issue is there really aren't any. That is false, and I proved that in a previous post. When I last counted, less than half of the games on the completed games first page were "generic". The other 65% are "other games". I presented...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

MaiMai is right. Many people complaining in this thread are upset because people are making games that they don't like. They apparently lack the ability to ignore those games, and instead focus on things they DO like. For some reason, they think the world should cater to what they want, so if they d...

Re: What VN are you currently playing?

I'm a huge fan of the Zero Escape series, but I just hope they can bring back the suspense of 999 in the next title.. You probably heard that Uchikoshi wanted VLR to be suspenseful but his company told him to lighten up :( It really sucks when a writer gets stifled and can't write the story they wa...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

If you know a way to make people put some effort into their setting, I'd love to hear it. The point is that there isn't a way to make people do anything, so stop trying. You are not in control of what other people make, so focus on your own game, your own efforts, and your own life. If you want to ...

Re: Amity: One Tale [Otome] [NaNoReNo '13]

I don't know if I should be happy or not that I got ending 0 first.
Either way, repeatedly clicking on the 'locked' characters until they 'disappeared' made me laugh. Thanks for putting that in, it's really amusing.
And now to actually play the game...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

I'm more then happy to tare into the VN's that bother me if you want... OR let us have our little thing here. the choice is yours. I don't think anyone is interested in your personal attacks on other people's creations. I also don't appreciate people basically telling me to leave. I have every righ...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

If you don't like people who don't fawn over faux-Japanese VNs, this probably isn't the right topic to be visiting. I don't expect anyone to fawn over faux-Japanese VNs simply because they are faux-Japanese. I don't even fawn over faux-Japanese VNs because of that reason. I fawn over games that are...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

Less than 50% is still an awful lot. 35% is not "an awful lot". It is hardly a majority. You still have 65% of other games to enjoy. I had a feeling you would say that it's still a lot, though, even if you were proven wrong. I'm sorry, but do you realize how you sound right now? This conversation i...
