Re: Shizune's Path

I went to an independent grammar school here in Britain. It used to be the case that independent (private) schools received money from the Grant Assistance Scheme, which was a government bung to help pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds pay their fees. However, the incoming Labour government abolis...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Panel at the Manifest Anime Convention

Just a quick note, a little food for thought: you say that there's some 600,000 words of narrative and dialogue in Katawa Shoujo - give yourselves a pat on the back, as that makes the game literally longer than War and Peace. How's that for epic? :)

Re: What you wouldn't want to happen in the story

I think that you're barking up the wrong tree with Hanako, Lawls - of course her storyline is going to involve that! Breaking Hanako out of her shell will surely be one of the chief objectives of her route, and that means that the issue of her scarring is inevitably going to have to be confronted. H...

Re: About the game's erotica...

Talking about that survey on the previous page, a little joke that I like: American condoms come in packs of six. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday - there's none for Sunday because Americans are pious folk who don't want to despoil the Sabbath. French condoms come in packs ...

I always saw Rin as lashing out with whirlwind neck-snapping roundhouse kicks, or using the edge of her canines instead of the edge of a blade, and going straight for the jugular.

Re: About the game's erotica...

Too bad the girl actually HAS knees. Yeah, I just remembered myself that she lost her legs at the shin rather than the thigh. Still, lacking friction she'd still slip if she leant too far forwards or backwards... Good God Almighty, I'm having annnotated diagrams showing directional arrows of mechan...

Re: About the game's erotica...

I've not seen it, but I've heard of it - I gather that the, er, "applicant" started transforming into the MGM Sound Studios' FX library with the amount of freaky noises that she was emitting. I also suppose that Shizune, being as forthright as she is and someone who makes power plays for fun (re: th...

Re: About the game's erotica...

So kids. What funny story do you think each of them will be left with from their first screw? Aside from impotence because we know thats coming. I predict Emi's legs being involved in hers. Hmm... Emi - she tries to ride cowgirl but owing to her lack of knees she can't keep her balance, and topples...

Re: About the game's erotica...

I think someone said that the meds Hisao's on can make it so he can't get it up. or "erectile dysfunction" if you want to get all technical. :mrgreen: so yeah, I kinda hope there's at least one awkward scene with Nurse where Hisao has to ask to be put on different meds 'cause of this. and not only ...

Re: STAB TIME!: Katawa Shoujo Yandere Fun-Happy Knife Frenzy!

I'm genuinely surprised that not more people have seen Mutou as a likely lunatic - while I put my own vote down for Emi, given the teacher's dispirited nature he always struck me as a close second to begin the nihilistic spiral into an abyss of existential aaaaaaaaaannnggggsssstttt . I suppose his e...

Re: Shizune's Path

Regarding Shizune's access to money - remember that Yamaku Academy is a private school. While a lot of such institutions do have bursary schemes to give financial assistance to poorer applicants (Hisao's probably a beneficiary of this seeing as he went to an ordinary "concrete-block" state school be...

Re: Is Phoenix Wright a VN (KS related)

Most professional writing on Phoenix Wright that I've seen tends to drop it into the generic "adventure game" catch-all, although that may be because there's not much knowledge of VNs amongst the specialist press. I would call the games VNs myself - they're still entirely narrative-driven, and they ...

Re: Favourite Ending?

Another thought about those concerns regarding Shizune's dramatic ending: please correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it the ending for Act One locks your route for the remainder of the game - you can't swap paths and experience a different girl mid-play, and from Act Two on it's either that...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Act 1 Preview feedback thread

These are just a couple of small niggles and not anything particularly game-breaking, but they did poke out as loose threads that should be easy to pull. -In the Library, the caption for the scene "Quiet" reads "Hanako and Hisao read books for the festival" - however, this is inaccurate as it's not ...
