Re: Breast-size joke cliches

IMO it would be interesting for you to read S.Freud's "Jokes and their relation to the unconscious". Do you mean for my sake or for the sake of the character? If you meant for my sake, I doubt I'd find it interesting. I hardly pay any attention to the size of a girl's breasts myself, to be perfectl...

Re: Breast-size joke cliches

Thanks for the responses :) Yeah, a Takahashi Couple or something similar to that is what I'm going for, I suppose. The jokes are meant as insults as well as cheap humor, and I should have mentioned that the female lead also says a lot of mean things to him. My dilemma is that if I take the breast j...

Breast-size joke cliches

I want to get an opinion, especially from female players. Yeah I know the breast jokes are cliche but I sort of like having them in my story's script because they seem like the kind of things the male lead would say to the female lead, at least early on. But on the other hand, I don't want to put of...

Re: Why are there more BxG games than GxB games?

This would be off-topic if we weren't talking about "date sims" now. (man, I hate that term. but since "romance sim" and "ren'ai sim" don't roll of the tongue as neatly....) No one here will necessarily disagree with me, but I think it's worth noting that there is no inherent reason that a date sim ...

Re: Why are there more BxG games than GxB games?

^ I think you may have misunderstood what she was getting at there. Of course it isn't any more difficult to convey deep personalities in a VN, but the question was why are there more BxG titles out there than GxB. If there's anything to the generalization that men are more attracted to looks than w...

Re: Questions about VNs

Cliches are neither good nor bad in and of themselves. If we see a lot of a given cliche, particularly in romance-themed stories, it is because human beings are cliche in their tastes. That's half the reason. The other half is that this genre is still dominated by males writing for males. The fact t...

Re: Konami and the Tokimeki Memorial Series for boys and gir

^Well, it looks fun. Of course you can never tell until you play it for yourself. If Negima were to have awesome games being made for it by different developers on different platforms it would be almost too good to believe for the fans. My experience has been that anime-to-game adaptions tend not to...

Re: Opinions about romance sub-plots?

I gotta admit I didn't feel very romantic always seeing my love interests in blood-splattered clothing, and furthermore, because my character was a short butt-ugly dwarf, jumping in the sack with Morrigan made me feel kinda gross at the same time that it was making me laugh. But I suppose that was p...

Re: Konami and the Tokimeki Memorial Series for boys and gir

I just gotta say something about Mahou Sensei Negima! , now that I started playing the first one on the ps2 (1jikanme). You almost never hear anything about this series, which is a cryin' shame because it is all at once a. the best anime->game adaption I've played b. the best galge Konami has made, ...

Re: Dating sim games- how many romantic interests do you lik

Lots! At least 6, and any more is welcome. My favorites have often had 8-12 or so. I'm all for the harem setting as well :D Incidentally, I'm in the middle of authoring a game that allows for the addition of extra characters, whether created by me or by others, so I'll be finding out how well a larg...

Re: Love Plus + Possible English Release?

Has anyone tried that V-girl game? I'm kinda curious how it rolls. About Sakutai 5, yeah it was a failure in sales. And it looks like they got lucky that Sony approved it at all. It doesn't look like Sony is gonna approve any more localisations of games in that series for any of their systems. Also,...

A few questions for players

Re: Music and sound effects copyright questions

If you're making a free game, especially a free game for a niche audience (read 'VN'), I bet you can probably get away with most any kind of copyright infringement. Those Sailor Moon dating sims, for instance, use copyrighted music from prominent Japanese games and prominent Japanese pop artists all...
