Re: Is KS fandom dying?

Ok guys, please, this wasn't directed at any of you, don't take it personally. It was just a figure of speech (if I'm using the term correctly?) sorry if I rustled anyone's jimmies, I was just trying to state my opinion.

Re: Is KS fandom dying?

Hey, I'm not the one to judge what people should do or shouldn't do. Do whatever you like. It's a free world. What I wanted to say is that there are probably many other activities that are more useful than spending hours every day here. And I mentioned /ksg/ because it used to be really, really good...

Re: Is KS fandom dying?

(I didn't read the thread past page I, but here's my input anyway) I've been thinking about this a lot. The community could be safely called dead. The only active topics here seem to be only vaguely related to the content of the VN and are more about people fantasizing (e.g. talking about what they ...

Re: So i was on Kickstarter and found this

Well, I've sort of looked into this, and for me it looks... unprofessional. (which is expectable as the one person who is behind most of the development is a 18 year old guy.) I've tried the demo, and so far, it does seem a lot like KS, and much more cliched too. I guess the problem - and what, comp...

Re: Do you have any disabled friends?

His only friend is his dad, Time to bust out those friend-making skills, Umbra, cause you're going to make friends with this kid instead of making yourself depressed thinking about his lack thereof. Let us know how it goes! Well, here are two problems to this. First, it's the age difference, I'm wa...

Re: Do you have any disabled friends?

My neighbour's brother (well, he's my neighbour too) has some pretty bad palsy (we live in a block of flats btw.) It's a sad story really. He's 14 I think, but looks 10 or so. He is pale as a sheet of paper (because he doesn't go out much, because, for one, he doesn't have any friends and two, he ca...

Re: Each KS Heroine categorized by Myers Briggs

After having a long ass discussion on KS and MBTI with my friend, I have to agree with you, she is an ESFJ. I didn't really think this one through. Oh, and he convinced me to make some other changes: Hanako is an ISFP Rin is an INFP which really seem to fit them better. After researching into S/N a...

Re: Each KS Heroine categorized by Myers Briggs

I have read several sources, however, I only posted one due to the fact that most posters aren't going to read 12 pages before coming to a long thought-out decision on this. My S/N definition is broader, I only have evidence for Hanako in that particular area of Sensing and Intuition. That's why I ...

Re: Each KS Heroine categorized by Myers Briggs

Well, having studied MBTI theory after that last thread, I changed my opinion about some of my previous choices. Misha: ESFP Shizune: ESTJ Lilly: ISFJ Hanako: INFP Emi: ENFJ Rin: ISFP Hisao: ISTP (varies from route to route, but it's more or less this one) Kenji: INTJ Also, OP, you have a truly narr...

Re: Did we change?

I couldn't say that KS changed my life like it did to other peeps here. But KS taught me an important lesson. That first and foremost, in whatever you are doing, you mustn't be miserable. It is unhealthy. It sucks away your time and makes everything seem bland. Change and happiness is impossible if ...

Re: The Music of Katawa Shoujo

Well, I'd say that it's not the soundtrack itself that's great (although it's certainly well-made), it's rather that we tie what we've read/seen in the game with the tune that was playing at the time. So when we listen to the soundtrack separately, the experience is enhanced by the feels we've exper...

Re: The Music of Katawa Shoujo

Mine top five would be: Wiosna - just so calm and feelsy. It really ties the game together. Innocence - for some reason it sounds really nostalgic for me, and I love that feeling. Teatime - it has that bittersweet tone (interesting chords), also I love the slow pace. Breathlessly - good instrumentat...

Re: Ask!

That was incredibly interesting to watch. I can't help but feel a little stupid for half-assuming that Rin might not be able to get her clothes on by herself, I mean I knew that she had to do it herself, I was just confused as to how. I guess the answer is with her feet and wits. Learn something ne...

Re: Immersion

Hell if I had kids I'd much prefer to see them playing KS than say, CoD. You are officially one of the best parents that hasn't had a child yet. @Umbra My mother would have taken away my laptop and forced me to kneel on salt. I think your parents are cool, tell them I said hi. And that I'm up for a...
