Re: Reach for the Stars

I strongly disagree with the "wordiness" aspect of it. I actually really enjoy the fact that VNs don't rely on the visuals too much and are written more like a novel. You know how they say that there are multiple kinds of learners? Well, there are also multiple kinds of media consumers! As much as I...

Re: KS: The Fighting Game

What fighting styles are you basing the girls' movesets on? I was thinking about this recently, what kind of martial arts the characters would use. Rin -- Taekwondo is the obvious choice, but Capoiera could work. Do amputees like her have weak elbows, because if not maybe she could do a variant of M...

What do you think about this guide to disability etiquette?

http://www.unitedspinal.org/disability- ... lications/ (the one at the top of the first column, labeled "Disability Etiquette")

I used to work retail and I think this would have been helpful for the times I did serve customers with disabilities.

Re: Did the game change your real RL attitude towards cripples?

Yes. I am a little more open-minded. I think I would still be uncomfortable around people with disabilities at first, but if I ran into a girl with stumps for arms who thought I was hot shit I wouldn't be quite so hesitant. Not that such a thing has or would ever happen, haha.

Rin - Likes: The time in the morning in between when you wake up and you have to get out of bed, rainbows Dislikes: The feel of synthetic fabrics, large cuts of meat (like steak) Emi - Likes: Azuki bean flavored popsicles, warm weather Dislikes: Naysayers, music without a steady beat, rain and snow ...

Re: Favorite visual novel?

Ever 17 was my first and it is easily the best one I've played.

Based on what I'm hearing about it, I need to play Saya no Uta. And possibly Umineko no Naku Koro ni.

Re: Language related question

I have heard the term なるほど/naruhodo as a pun similar to how Hisao used "I see" in that sense. But as far as I know, that sense of it is much less common than in English.

Re: Which girls are experienced?

The average VN player/anime fan would smash his hard drive and DDOS the KS-hosting servers if he found out that his favorite girl was "used goods", so probably none of them.

Re: Have you played Hanako's Game recently? (Poll)

Not really. Within two years, yeah, I'm sure I have, but two years isn't really "recent". I think I kicked the habit because I'm trying to un-learn all of my weird habits and tendencies. . .it was expected when I was a kid, a little weird when I was a teenager, but I am paranoid about creeping peopl...

Re: The plot speculations thread

Saw this posted elsewhere: In the final game, after all five main routes + the hidden Kenji route are completed, another six Alter routes will open up, giving the True End to each of the routes that the player went through previously. Hanako is not ashamed of her scars, she is very bad at keeping se...

Re: What order did you COMPLETE the storylines?

Emi first by accident.

Then I think I got Kenji intentionally. Then. . .I think it was Rin -> Hanako -> Lilly -> Shizune.

Finished game, I gotta go for Rin first. Then Hanako and Lilly. Then I guess Shizune, then Emi if I feel like it.

Re: any like minded indivuiduals?

If anything I've noticed that most of the popular/talked-about/translated VNs are barely focused on sex at all, except for Yume Miru Kusuri. Ever 17, chaos;head, Umineko, Higurashi, Clannad, Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime, Planetarian. . . I appreciate this; if I wanted porn I wouldn't bother reading th...

Has possibly been mentioned before, but there's a typo in the Rin fireworks scene.
