Re: Just started KS...

Lisa's arc? Who the hell is Lisa? :D She's the secret hidden character in Katawa Shoujo. To unlock her, you first must have unlock the Tommy Wisue route then beat the game on Hard Mode and get a bad ending. Lol! Be nice guys. When I wrote that post I had all of 1 day into the game. (I never played ...

Re: Just started KS...

The flowchart was only minimally helpful, but I managed to pick my way through it. Out of curiosity, which flowchart were you looking at? How would you suggest making it easier to read through? Actually, I had two. Feuver's 2.9 version for all of Katawa Shoujo, which is my main one, and your own mo...

Re: Just started KS...

All told, the Emi "bad'" ending isn't all that horrible, rather benign really. There's a much greater disparity between her "good" ending and the "best" one, even though they both end up at the same place. Agreed, although I would say that if you haven't gotten the best option ending yet, getting t...

Re: The Hard Sell (Convincing people to play this)

I think the trick to introducing it is to leave OUT the "sex" side of it. Just sell it as a "romance and relationship" story more like Clannad or AIR. Let them discover the sex on their own. If they come back at you angry just show them how to turn it off in the options. I would approach it more lik...

Re: Just started KS...

Also, if you get all the good endings first, then you're going to have a streak of horribly depressing bad ones to play through. That's not very healthy, wouldn't you say? Yeah, I can testify to that. Did two bad endings in a row, need three more, and haven't the heart to do so. Hmmm.. You might ha...

Re: Why the hate for Shizune ??

I personally chalk it up to a few different factors; 1) Shizune has a powerful personality . As noted by alien.marksman, she is strong and pushy almost to the point of abrasiveness, and that turns ALOT of people off. (some of us really have a thing for "tough chicks" though. That's why I chose Shizu...

Re: ks apparel

I'd actually like a button-down or golf style shirt with the KS logo embroidered on the left chest pocket. (right over the heart. See what I did there?) At my age I can't really get away with too many T-Shirts unless I'm mowing the lawn or something, but I do have Megatokyo polo shirt and a couple o...

Re: High tech gadgets for each girl

Hanako could use those Metal Gear Solid-like nanomanchinesd to restore her skin cells. Heh. Or she could study science and go all "Darkman". (Darkman is 1990 movie about a scientist burned over 90% of his body in an arson fire. The burn ward doctors intentionally cut part of his spinal cord so he c...

Re: Just started KS...

Thanks geekahedron, and others for your advice. I've actually gone ahead and played through another storyline today (in between painting the bathroom and realizing I've got an expensive moisture problem in my attic. (Ugh. I hate home ownership sometimes) I decided to sort of go with my original plan...

Re: Just started KS...

When you make your choices without the flowchart, are you using the "I wonder what the game needs me to choose here to get to xxx" or the "what would I have done if I were Hisao" mindset? If you're using the former, then you're playing KS wrong. It's not multiple choice questions in an exam. There ...

Re: High tech gadgets for each girl

I thought that Emi's "spring" legs were pretty darn high tech already. I'm not certain that they are even available in real life yet. EDIT: Apparently they ARE available! According to the poster above me. Awesome! http://www.ossur.com/flex-run Some of the prosthetics that US military members are get...

Re: Just started KS...

Nevertheless... WHY ARE YOU PLAYING WITH A FLOWCHART ON YOUR FIRST RUN? It's just so... wrong. It's all right to be yourself. It's all right to occassionally screw up. I second this. You oughta at least play through once without influence from flowcharts. It's one of the best experiences these CYOA...

Just started KS... UPDATE: 100% Complete!

And I've just finished the Shizune arc. I decided to go for her first simply because she reminds me of my wife. Determined, driven, a little tsundere, glasses, short hair. Just my type. I really enjoyed it, although I was a bit disappointed at the ending. It was nice and happy and all, but I was rea...
