Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

>I admitted that I was wrong, but now I say that I was right and you are in fact wrong, because summaries are... the universe
Everything you write is to reinforce the idea that you are smart rather than any kind of good faith analysis, so it is not worth my talking about.

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

Why would anyone who wants to give people the best of a work just summarize the whole thing? Trying to graft on opinions to evoke a similar experience as to reading it... what a silly idea. Like there is actual equivalence there. When Christopher Reeve was thrown from his horse and lay in a coma, be...

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

When you are trying to convince others that something is good, and trying to explain why it is good, you should not just summarize the story shot for shot. This is a poor way to get people to experience the same emotions that you felt, because you are robbing them of an actual experience.

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

Dude you're just doubling down and saying you summarized the whole game practically scene for scene because you wanted people to understand that it evokes feeling. I don't get it.

I don't get it. It took you a year and 60,000 words, and you just summarized the game and said it was sentimental.

Re: Liking Shizune but not enjoying her route?

Still nice to have some sort of official confirmation as to the intent. When this game released, the thing I found most distasteful was that instead of reading it over a lot of people did not read it even once because they wanted to remain true to their waifu or something equally embarrassing. cath...

Condescension isn't coming to this thread in this forum to reply to you all and tell you that the quality of discussion is low. If I wanted to be condescending I wouldn't have to entertain anything any of you say. Or, condescension would be giving you what you wanted, telling you what to discuss and...

Re: Liking Shizune but not enjoying her route?

You give off the vibe that you're ashamed of yourself for participating in this project in the first place, you want to distance yourself from the fanbase, and you're doing so by acting in a severely condescending manner. The only thing I'm ashamed of is the fanbase's terrible discussions, that far...

Re: Liking Shizune but not enjoying her route?

Look, if you want to engage the KS community, that's great. No, you small-minded man. I'm just commenting on what I see, and I'm here because I'm bored. I have no intention to "troll" you. What you should actually be asking yourself is, "Man, why is discussion of KS so shit across the board? Is thi...

Re: Liking Shizune but not enjoying her route?

Forum is full of interesting "discussion" as ever. If this, I'm talking about the entire KS community, is really the best level of discourse you can throw up, then there really is no point. Basically, I think what people want is more touchy-feely stuff. Yeah? No shit, my nigga. But how can people se...

Re: Liking Shizune but not enjoying her route?

"Writing for this medium" is the kind of thinking that leads all visual novels to be the same banal girl-centric slop where you pretend you're actually making decisions beyond which emotionally manipulative girl you want to bang. Really, I was thinking of adding more choices in Shizune's route later...

Re: Liking Shizune but not enjoying her route?

It's been a year and I'm bored as shit. When I decided to write for this game I thought that aside from having fun with it I was going to make my route more of a character study than focusing on a plot, because high school plots are dull and transient and it's more interesting to me to focus on char...

Re: Gamefaq's KS Critique

What a stupid thread. If someone posts a review you don't like, there is no need to draw attention to it and go "hey, look, someone's saying something stupid that I don't like! We should all gather around and complain about it!" Who cares? It seems like the person who posted the review made a point ...

Yeah, there was never going to be a Kenji or Misha route. This was never considered, except maybe as a joke. Tired of hearing this rumor circulate. Whoosh. Damn.
