Seriously, a visual novel centered around a group of dead girls would be awesome.
Well, Figures of Happiness has a dead girl and "Miss Death" as paths... of course, the art, characters, and plot are all horrible, but nevertheless, dead girls are options...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Act 1 Preview feedback thread

Tough a lot of friends don't like VNs cause a lot of people believe video games are based on action and stuff. I'm inclined to say we do ourselves, and potential newcomers a disservice by referring to visual novels like KS as games at all. It's possible for visual novels to contain games, sure (Pri...

Re: Favorite girl.

Shizune isn't bad even at the beginning. Just the argument with Lilly was pretty evil tough. I'm looking forward to know more about the roots of their enmity too. The argument is what set me off. The constant "join the student council!" was mildly annoying, but only in a perfectly reasonable, "Jesu...

Re: Favorite girl.

I like that you actually gave Shizune a chance, unlike many others who simply write her off as a bitch. The problem is that you still write her off as a bitch. This can't really be helped. Hanako and Lilly are arguably the most popular of the girls, so when Shizune argues with Lilly, and scares off...

Not true of all monitors (read: my primary monitor). I'm using a Samsung 2232BW as display 1, on the right, and a ViewSonic VX2240w as display 2, on the left. Only the ViewSonic supports 4:3 aspect ratio in hardware.

Re: Favorite girl.

I'm badly torn. Lilly was my first ending, and I still expect her to be my first ending in the finished game... but Hanako is so close I could see myself waffling throughout and ending up with NEITHER, depending on how the game is written. Shizune I really, strongly disliked through all of my playth...

Now I'm wondering what sort of furniture she is. Or what the rest of them are.

I think Hanako would be an Ottoman.
Well, we all know Rin's not an armchair.

Re: which KS girl do you think would put out the easiest?

I'm in the Shizune camp. Everything--EVERYTHING--she does (in Act 1, anyway) is about winning. I could totally see her winding up in bed to avoid losing a dare, and letting go all the way to avoid being the one who backed down. :P

Re: Bad end discussion topic

Do you think it will be that difficult to avoid a bad end, if they're in there? I mean, it seemed to me that Act 1 encouraged a certain mode of behavior whose continuation will assure some good end or another, specifically: Pursue one girl instead of trying to be nice to everybody, pick honest and ...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Folding@Home Team

Now I need to see how complex this program really is. In terms of getting it going, it's not complex at all (GPU client, that is). The standard and GPU clients were both easy for me to get going on machines I added to this. The SMP client constantly fails in one way or another, and I got sick of de...

Sometimes a reset doesn't do it. I've got Cockmast... I mean, Comcast... and most of the time a reset on my cable modem nails me the same IP, unless I feel like leaving myself offline for a significant amount of time. Not sure why, really.

Re: Katawa shoujo featured on Kotaku.

Some won't give KS a shot because it is a OELVN and it isn't "Japanese enough" while (I hope) a lot of people might give this VN a chance because it is an OELVN. I consider myself pretty weeaboo, but I quite like KS so far. I guess that might be the difference between liking Japanese stuff that you...
