Re: GameFAQs Top 10: Top 10 Best Characters From Visual Nove

...i wonder if that will sound more coherent tomorrow when i'm not severely sleep deprived and rehash the argument to someone else. I doubt it. I'm wide awake now and it doesn't sound the least bit coherent to me. I feel like i should throw something sharp at you. Repeating arguments guest poster p...

Re: GameFAQs Top 10: Top 10 Best Characters From Visual Nove

The formula is a little more complex than that, but more decisions would be the easiest and most obvious solution where we have direct input as opposed to us just choosing which version of "The Misadventures of a Dopey Heart Patient" to read next. Without direct control of the player, a visual novel...

Re: GameFAQs Top 10: Top 10 Best Characters From Visual Nove

You can choose to read a story where Hisao sticks with the art club or leaves it, but in the end we're still reading a story where a fucking idiot encourages Rin to go into professional art under the guidance of a greedy bastard and someone who is quite clearly unreliable and who never encourages h...

Re: GameFAQs Top 10: Top 10 Best Characters From Visual Nove

Every action taken is Hisao's action? That's like saying there's no action in Mario Bros because the plumber is the one jumping on mushrooms and not the player. Yes. There is interaction. You choose Hisao's actions at various points which leads you to another choice later on. These choices lead you...

Re: GameFAQs Top 10: Top 10 Best Characters From Visual Nove

Putting something that isn't a video game up against real video games designed as such is going to hurt it. What makes it not a video game? No interactivity. All we do is turn the page, every action taken is Hisao's action. Sure we can choose to read multiple outcomes when Hisao is considering some...

Re: 2012 /v/GAs

A change of subject. Someone did comment on the "Feels" award and believe it or not, that's the one area of what was posted i will mostly accept. While again i would gladly go down on Hanako, The Walking Dead earns special praise for having good emotional impact and actually getting me to care about...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

Install the game to the hard drive, that's the best way to avoid those problems. Yeah..... I'm playing on PC. The game is apparently not optimized with current nvidia build, alot of graphical problems. Ouch. Which means just to put a cherry on it you bought the fucking thing. I did finish it, i wil...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

Limited interactivity is still interactivity. Your own actions still determine whether you "win" or "lose". No, no it's not. Are books video games? You can turn the pages on those, which is the most you ever do in Katawa Shoujo. If Katawa Shoujo is a video game, than so is Kitchen Confidential. Not...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

AAAAAGH! I came here to vent and maybe to ease my feelings of utter contempt for other people after a bizarre experience with Tomb Raider, and the first thing i see are two topics treating Katawa Shoujo like a video game. I really don't see why so many people have problems keeping the definitions st...

Re: Can anyone recommend some good let's play?

The only one i can think of that i tolerate since it's more in line with what Katawa Shoujo is is the Caramelle Crappe Katawa Shoujo sort of web-comic let's play on The Escapist.

Re: GameFAQs Top 10: Top 10 Best Characters From Visual Nove

First things first, you can disregard the poll GameFAQs ran because it's clearly taking the piss. Sunohara from Clannad a good character? Please, that's like saying Kirk Cameron is a good actor. Second of all stop putting Katawa Shoujo in GameFAQs polls. Putting something that isn't a video game up ...

Re: 2012 /v/GAs

Oh for fucking in church. How many times do i have to say it? Katawa Shoujo is NOT A VIDEO GAME. There is no challenge, no possible way to lose, and no real interactivity that couldn't be found in choose your own adventure novels. Plus, who the hell set up these fucking awards where Katawa Shoujo si...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

So stranded in my house for weeks due to multiple winter storms, and just when i think i can get out for a walk my insomnia hits me bad, i don't fall asleep until ten a.m, and when i wake up i find out that there's been a lot of flooding due to rain and snow that was still piled up melting. Isn't Mi...

Re: Depressed

Man, for me the highest point has to be Lilly fucking with Shizune without Misha realizing it. Did she not realize or not give a fuck? :lol: Obviously she didn't realize considering how slowly it took to penetrate her five inch thick skull that Lilly and Shizune were fighting. I guess she was distr...

Re: Depressed

A good thing to follow up Katawa Shoujo with is a video game called Spec Ops: The Line. Katawa Shoujo makes you feel warm and fuzzy and chips away at cynicism, Spec Ops: The Line makes you feel so disgusted with yourself it makes you physically ill on your first playthrough. FUN FUN FUN! But don't t...
