Re: Katawa Shoujo 2 Cancelled

The problem with mental handicaps is that, on one hand, it's far more difficult to write them in for believable characters without having firsthand experience - and on the other hand, it really blurs the lines on an unimportant concept called consent.

Just sayin'...

Re: Katawa Shoujo 2 Cancelled

The interesting thing about this is: 4LS often stated there won't be a sequel, and if you read between the lines of this blog post, it seems some of the reasons for that snuck into it.

Re: Katawa Crash (FAQ, DL link, and to-do log first post)

First off, how can such a simple game be that addicting? It seems I can't explain it at all - actually, when a friend asked me why I got hooked on a flash game lately the only explanation I could muster was something along the lines of "you'd need half a day minimum on TVtropes to even begin underst...

Re: Epic Rap Battles at Yamaku

Beat starts... Rin: "I. Am. Rin. In a bin. A-Ring-a-ding-ding - what's that? - schools out, I win." Beat stutters to a halt, audience watches Rin leave the stage with a bored expression Kenji: "What the fuck just happened?!" I'm so sorry. Didn't mean to hijack. It just... I couldn't resist :( No, s...

Re: A pseudo-pseudo Suzu route (completed)

Oh my, why did I do this... it was supposed to be a short trip to the Ks forums, for a few laughs, maybe checking the latest version of Katawa Crash, stuff like that, as a finishing note on my "annual soul purge". Then I stumbled into this thread. I'm not.. entirely sure what happened to the last 17...

Re: Gamefaq's KS Critique

i wonder is the review based off ks being a VN or a video game ?? ( cause as a game there isn't much in the way of interaction ) Hey, she did rate the gameplay 5/10 ;-) That's probably the most ridiculous thing compared to her other scores... I'll have to admit, while KS is quite good, it's not tha...

Re: Does else anyone here have my problem

Playing the bad ends is a good way to distance yourself from the game again, after having palyed it a lot. At least for me, it felt.. finished, afterwards. I still fire it up now and then to play some scenes again, but in a way, it helped me move on and realize that, in fact, it's just a game. Also,...

Re: How will you steal that girl from Hisao? If Yamaku exist

I would try to race Emi, keel over and spend the rest of the afternoon lying on the track, wheezing and cursing my smoking habit.

Re: Katawa Shoujo "Plus"

Distancing the project from KS by using another name is a step into the right direction. It doesn't change my original doubts of "do we really need another game with virtually the same premise?" but it will surely help reaching a wider audience ( and a fair share of KS fans that would otherwise be V...

Re: Gamefaq's KS Critique

Even if it's a bad review, it's still media attention - and not the usual negative "omg it is about fucking crippled girls, what's wrong with the world" shit.

Re: Katawa Shoujo "Plus"

My reaction could best be summarized with "huh." and a shrug. And this is not the tenth KS fanboy bashing on the project, it's just... KS has been done, and it's been done good, so I don't know how much demand there is for a game with exactly the same premise. On the other hand, it could turn out th...

Re: (My) Introduction, thoughts and a question

Read it again. ...no, really. Playing every route a second time really pays off, it's like reading a good book again: you already know where the story is going and can pay attention to finer nuances of setting and character interaction, giving you an all-new experience. There's lot of stuff happeni...
