100% and more

Post by Sethkowns » Fri Apr 06, 2012 3:10 pm

I'd just like to simply ask this just, to see how others who have recieved 100% felt. So basically i have 100% and yet here i am still redoing every route. Has anyone else here who has finished the game completely found themselves still playing or atleast looking over certain scenes every now and then???
Because i certainly am. I mean, this game has meant a lot to me, but it's not like it runs my life. To me it will always be a game i will simply log around 20 minutes a day in, for the simple reason, that to me this is the greatest "novel" or "book" ever written. I feel as if i treat this game more as a book than a game. Like i'll get my coffee and sit down to read this just like i would any other book.

I'm already on my second complete playthrough: finished Emi's and Lilly's, and working on Shizune's at the moment. I tend to end my nights with about an hour's worth of playthough. I really can't stop playing this game, at least not right now. It's left too much of an impact to just vanish after 100%. I've never really been that into reading text for long periods of time, but this VN is an exception. I do find myself looking in the gallery every now and then, remembering how i felt during certain scenes. I know that I may never get those same feelings again from this VN, but excellently written story of each route combined with the art and amazingly fitting music is enough for me.

Yeah i agree, its nice to hear how other people feel about this. Its not like i let this game run my life, but if i just never played this again, there would always be a void in my life. So as far as i can tell, KS will remain in my life as somthing to read in the morning to start my day.

This VN has just taught me so much about myself it's scary. It's also shown the positives and negatives of each of these girls, and helped me understand what type of girl i'm compatible with. I just got out of an almost 2 year long relationship with a girl that sort of a hybrid between Emi and ghetto (lawl). As adorable as I found Emi to be, I know I couldn't be with a girl like that, or similar. I don't do well when a person I know and care about shuts me of their life or hides behind a thick shell, but who would do well in that sort of situation? I'd be much better off with someone resembling Lilly or Shizune. But I digress, this VN was a masterpiece to me and i'm guaranteed to be revisiting it in the future.

I'm always a big proponent of doing multiple playthroughs of KS. I found my understanding of every route was increased significantly after my second time to 100%.

I used to re-read some scenes just for my own pleasure (I was especially obsessed with Proof of Existence for a while), but now I only open the game for academic purposes, when I need evidential support for a forum argument.

Ive finished every route as well. 4 times for Lilly, 3 Hanako, 2 Emi (working on third), 2 Rin, 2 Shizune. I cant just leave the game alone now that Ive completed it once. It doesnt rule my life. I can put it down for a while, but I have to play it for a bit each day. At least a couple hours.

Lilly = Hanako, Emi, Rin, Shizune
I fell in love with Lilly and Hanako

You are not alone, and you are not strange. You are you, and everyone has damage. Be your Emiest.

I lost count how many times I've played them over and over again.

Mainly on Shizune, Hanako, and Lilly's route; often, they are for source materials or my own personal research and analysis on their characters and the plot.

I've already achieved 100% as well. I still play KS but I also throw in a bunch of other things to do as well. At the moment, I'm going through Emi's arc for the 4th time, just completed Mass Effect 3 for the third time, Playing the ME3 multiplayer to get better weapons, started a new hard reset of the entire Mass Effect series with a renegade female sentinel, watching Avatar: The Last Airbender (Ep 41 so far) for the second time, and slowly downloading, re-watching, and creating a compilation video of Urusei Yatsura (Rough English translation is "Those Obnoxious Aliens). I have a lot on my entertainment plate.

Still haven't 100% once, I have a short attention span, I play games in close bursts.

But looking at how I got Star Craft 2, Fall of the Samurai, Red Dead Redemption, and Skyrim, I has more entertainment :D

Well, I am currently replaying Emi arc and intend to replay Hanako's as well. I actually noticed there's a bunch of stuff I missed on my first playthrough.
