Too much romance stuffs out there.

There's a need for more realistic releases exploring modern day dysfunctional human interaction without letting romance get in the way.....

Something like 天使いないの十二月 (Tenshi Innai No Jyuuni Gatsu) which is currently my No. 1 fave ero game. Too bad people didn't take this release too well, guess it remains them how sucky their life are.

I dont have a personal computer so i cant run or install any of the H-games, but anime porn, good thing or bad. For me i dont care, it is rather the concept right, 'what's real to us, is facaded to keep us sane" or something like that ha ha hahaaaa ^_^.

As I told someone else in this thread, try playing either kana: imoto or crescendo. You may find that you change your mind about these games. :) Personally I wouldn't touch a hentai anime, but many of the games actually have good plots. Now this isn't to say all ero-games have plots. There are also a lot of them that the plot is basicly an excuse for having sex. There are also quite a few that fall somewhere in between. I never thought I'd buy any of these games either, but then I played kana...

BTW, may I ask where you got your av? I've been looking for SO3 icons with little luck.
In the internet,(google, derp!) and no, I can't play those games cause I am too poor to afford one.
and DingoEgretZOE2......HELL YEAH!

"When I find the guy who invented Hentai, I shall destroy him with the power of truth, justice, and a dragon!!!! "

I'm not sure why so many people have the idea that anime is awesome, but if it contains adult content then it's automatically horrible. I've even heard people complain about doujinshi saying that it's a slap in the face of the creator, when in fact creating a parody doujinshi is considered to be a big form of admiration, along with cosplay. Do you ever consider the fact that the mangaka who create your favorite stories probably enjoy ero anime? Do you ever consider that some of the same seiyuu who preform in your favorite anime also have roles in ero anime? It's up to the individual to watch the anime that s/he enjoys most. It's not a problem to not like ero anime and games, but keep in mind that they are a legitimate part of the anime pop-culture world.

I'm anti-hentai as well but I'd try out those games mentioned above if I could read Japanese. I've played a flash game called sim girl which just makes fun of hentai games and it was really funny cause its just about a guy going around cussing and try to get on a high school chick.

That and touting medical achievements such as stem cell research as "unethical," regarding evolution as "only a theory and not a fact," and abortion as "murder."

From a Japanese (and most Asians, I assume) standpoint, I think it is Christian ethics that is hindering human advancement in medicine, science, and social ethics.

Is it then perhaps that the reason I was raised under minimal Christian ethics and values I see no impurity of the physical act of love-making between two couples? Many non-Japanese bark at "Japan is such a sex-crazed nation...look at all those love hotels, etc. etc." However, in our eyes, we view you somewhat like "children who are so brainwashed that sex is so bad," and "ewww! sex! cooties!!"

Once again, I ask....what the heck is so wrong about "sex?" What precisely is the Christian ethical standard that causes such stigmatism for sex in the first place? How so is it so wrong to do a physical act of love-making for pleasure because we are only supposed to have sexual intercourse for the sole purpose of bestowing an offspring? That is basically saying something like "you aren't supposed to do regular exercises for your own pleasure and well-being because we are originally created with motion for hunting." (bad example, I know).

Crescendo and Kana - Little Sister are both available in English, two of the few games in English that offers something other than just constant sex. Which is one of the reasons so many people mention those games; there are many more like them (and better than them) in Japan, but very few here have the Japanese skills needed to properly enjoy such story-driven games. I know I don't...

If envy is a sin, I'm surely going to end up in hell when I die...

*Edit*
In the 5 minutes it took me to whine and moan, DingoEnderZOE2 already posted what I originally intended to say.

Beats me... and I'm a Christian. But then again, Norway, despite the fact that it's illegal to sell uncensored pornography here (but you can import for your own consumption), is very open when it comes to sexual matters. I think it's more a question of which country you live in rather than the religion you follow. American Christians are some of the worlds most fanatic people (yes I know, not all of them).

Or maybe I'm just a "bad" Christian :)

Also, I've tryed the 麻雀くれいどるそんぐ game which is related to くれいどるそんぐ and it's an interesting mini game :)

Most americans, christian and otherwise, aren't like that. You'd never know from the way politicans and right wing talk show hosts talk though. All this crap about values deciding the recent election is just the dreamings of such people. They don't want to admit the only reason bush won is because a lot of americans feared changing presidents during the "war on terror". The public believed the lies about iraq, and john kerry, and voted accordingly.
While abortion really is a controverial issue in the US, stem cell research and teaching evolution really aren't. Most americans support both, but don't really consider either as important issues that would effect their votes. Thus it seems like more americans are fanatics then really are. The sad truth is most americans are just gullible idiots, the end result of one of the worst education systems in the world. :heh:

I'm actually anti-Hentai, I just dropped by because this topic grabbed my attention. And I never really knew this much people bought hentai games. :twitch:


It's incredible we still have so many anti-erogames here.
Like Kj1980 said, it took to us non-japanese people twenty years to learn "Anime is not just for kids" (even nowadays i still find some people who think that way :heh: ).
It will take more ten years for us to learn "erotic bishoujo games can have a good story/plot" or "bishoujo games don't need erotic scenes to be great".

The best proof of this is: every year many great, story-focused erotic bishoujo games are being ported to console without the ero scenes or transformed in anime TV shows (You are in a anime forum. Did you never considerated how much of them are based on Ero-games?! :twitch: )

Like DingoEnderZOE2 said, try some bishoujo game first. Unfortunately the best ero-bgames ever was not translated in english, but you still can find some great translated bgames, like KANA-LITTLE SISTER, CRESCENDO, PRIVATE NURSE and HEART DE ROOMMATE.

Here i listed some reviews sites for these games. Please keep in mind these reviews are not from Ero-Gamers... most of them tried an ero-game for the first time and feel compeled to tell their unique experience. You will not find any erotic CG too:

HEART DE ROOMMATE

If you really don't want to try any erotic bishoujo game, try some non-erotic instead, like for instance the DVD-PG games from HIRAMEKI. Most of them were originally ero-games, but they had their erotic scenes removed (don't need of them anyway, because of the great story ;) ). My favorite tittles are HOURGLASS OF SUMMER and PHANTOM OF INFERNO. :)

Not all ero-games are ADV and personally, I think non-ADV games are my favorite, because they're more rare (especially because I have a very distinguished taste in hentai) and usually are the one you will not have hard time to understand :)

Yeah, that's right. In bishoujo gaming, we have many kinds of action-games, RPGs, SLG, TBL and SIM; far more than "normal" games. I am a 'Studio E-Go'-Fanatic, myself. (Still waiting for the translated version of MEN AT WORK! 2 to be finished, thought :( )

Personally, I didn't really like heart de roommate. While it was funny, it just felt like it should have been an anime series, not a game. Of course that feeling was helped by it being structured like an anime. If I had paid full price, I'd probably have been annoyed, but for only $35, it was worth it.
Well, next up on my list is private nurse, but I'm not going to buy and pay shipping on just one game, so I'll have to find something else to order first.

I'm a Catholic Christian, and as you can see, I live in Belgium.

I don't have any problem with sex. However, I view it as a part of love, and not something made just for what people would call 'fun'. For me, sex is intended for two people who love each other, but not necessarily to give birth to offspring.

A member of Peach Princess' BBS explained it pretty well.
Sex in a relationship is like a table with many groceries, meat, fruits, etc.
Sex just for the sex is like taking a burger from a table and taking off.

I don't know what stem cell research is, though. But I can share my views about such kind of research. I view research on DNA and cloning as unethical. Why? Because we're not God. We shouldn't manipulate life. However, I'm mostly against it because I fear of abuse of this research.
Many people wouldn't want a child that isn't, to their standards, normal. They would abort it.
I'm autistic, in the form of Asperger's Syndrome. Many people would abort their child if it had this. It's just not right. We're people too, and we can function normally, but we are 'different'. This all goes back to the argument that people should learn to accept people that are different from themselves.

I'm not against abortion. It's the women's right to choose. Besides, what people forget, is thinking about the child. HOW would YOU FEEL if you got to know that you were unwanted?! It would most likely scar you for life. Or that you were given birth by a rapist? (I'm aware that in this case, they do support abortion. Tsk tsk, double standards...)

About Hitomi - My stepsister

This is a dark game. Still, it's currently one of the best dark games available, from what I hear. The story is believable, has a good story, and there's no ugly stuff like S&M like it that would put people off.

Remember, don't rate a game just on its graphics...

About Hourglass of Summer

Actually, the original game is console bishoujo game that debuted on either the Dreamcast or the PS2, and had no H-scenes. The game was later ported to the PC, and H-scenes were added. However, that version was harshly criticised by fans, because they felt that the H-scenes didn't fit in the story's mood.

Close, but not 100% right :)

What I wrote was a quote from a Norwegian book about "behavioural genetics", if such an expression exists in English. A book about which behaviours are affected how by our genes, the purpose of the behaviours that are identical in most human beings regardless of culture etc. Anyway, what I wrote (translated from Norwegian, of course) was:

"Love without sex is like a set table without food. Sex without love is like grabbing a burger and taking off".

Maybe it makes more sense in Norwegian than English, but I'm not a professional translator, so I'm unsure as to whether I could use different wording to capture the essence better.

It's a statement I agree with. This also pretty much mirrors my opinion of sex in ero-games. If the game has only constant, fairly pointless sex, it might initially sate your hunger if you're starving for anything sex-related. But if that's all you get, it's ultimately bland and unsatisfying. I'm a person who prefers ero-games where sex is a result of love, not the other way around. That's not to say you can't make a good game where there's sex before love, but I have a personal preference for emotional stories that gradually build up relationships first.

Tentacles are not my thing, nor are rape/abuse-themed stories (I did not enjoy Virgin Roster/Shukketsubo).

Anyway, I was about to hit the 'add to cart' button for Hitomi - Stepsister when I read your post and you mentioned that this game is quite dark. So again I googled around a little longer to make sure that I know what I'm doing. As I was browsing, I found more CG pictures of the game and *gasp* two of them are threesome scenes. :uhoh: One of them is a mother and daughter sex scene. :twitch: So now I'm wondering if you can be more specific as to how dark this game really is. Unless it's in the same vein as something like crescendo, I'll prolly be retreating my wallet back to my pocket.

Are you sure? It's usually the case when a good H-game being de-sexed and ported to consoles. Natsuna is originally developed by Berries, then Princess Soft acquired their license to port them to DC & PS2.

I may be wrong though, seeming that the PC version of Natsuna has this "For Windows" label added, quite rare for H-games to have that.

Because that person said more people did not loike it wit the hentai scenes.
You don't understand the real statement, do you? Natsuna/Hourglass of Summer has a very sad storyline, it's up there with the likes of Kana and Kiminozo. Having hentai scenes in a depressing H-game when the original doesn't, makes people favour the original one.

Benoit, here? Heh, odd thing I happened to stumble upon this thread. I remember you from your time on BeGN :heh: I was part of the crew, sadly the site went downhill fast the last couple of months, not that you care I guess, so I left.

On topic: Only ero-games I've played were X-change 2 and True Love, I liked the latter best, because of the higher interactivity and semi-nice storyline.

It's just like AzureLight said. Natsuna is an unusual case. Usually popular ero games that have stories good enough to be sold to the general public are ported to console with the ero scenes removed. Like kj1980 said, these games are often made with the console market in mind, so the ero scenes can be taken out without messing up the story too much. But you're still losing part of the original game, that's why they often give you extra characters etc to make up for that loss. I've heard of people who enjoy both versions, but after playing both it feels like "something is missing" from the ported version. Of course, something is missing. Now with Natsuna it's the opposite. Something is added. It all depends on how the addition was made. Obviously the just carelessy threw in ero scenes to sell the game on the PC market. Such an addition didn't fit the story, so people were upset. So please don't misunderstand. The erotic content itself wasn't the problem, but rather the way it was inserted into a story where it didn't belong. Remember, these same people who complained about the ero scenes in Natsuna are ero game fans.

Are you sure? It's usually the case when a good H-game being de-sexed and ported to consoles.
I know. I trust my source, though.
Benoit, here? Heh, odd thing I happened to stumble upon this thread. I remember you from your time on BeGN I was part of the crew, sadly the site went downhill fast the last couple of months, not that you care I guess, so I left.
Hi! Always nice to run into a fellow Belgian. :)
What was your name on BeGN?

The only thing I heard about BeGN recently is from David from A Shop Less Ordinary. That BeGN did a nasty thing after which ASLO removed their forum.
I got banned from BeGN because I was pissed at the administrator. Sent a PM to him where I let out my anger (it wasn't a flame, though), and... banned.

I have a fast question. Okay yesterday I was on a website about to order a game and while I was looking around on what to order, I noticed that Doukyuusei 2 wasn't on the list. I figured it must have been sold on. Now today I looked on Elf's website and I went to their line up and I found out Doukyuusei 2 wasn't on that list either. This isn't really a problem for me since my Doukyuusei 2 is safetly stored away But now I'm curious. My question is whats up? Did Elf stop making the game or something and if so how come?

[...]I think that game will be probably the most eagerly awaited english bishoujo game ever.

I wonder why. Is it because people are expecting it to be great, or because they have been waiting literally years for Peach Princess to get the work done (aka the "give us the god-damn game already" syndrome). Maybe a little of both :)

I've only had the game pre-ordered for about 1 year, unlike some who ordered it back in in 2001. Considering how long they have been waiting, the game had better be worth it, or there might be screams for blood :)

By Japanese standards, it might not be all that outstanding. But seeing ero-games with simulation elements is pretty rare in English. As for the exact details of the game, I have to admit I'm not all too familiar with it. I'm sure the PP board has a lot of info about it though, after so many years a lot of info must've crept in there.

Forgive my Utter stupidity, But what exactly Are Ero/H Games?

May I suggest that you go 5 or so pages back of this thread, and read some of kj1980's posts on the existance of ero/H/Bishoujo games, and how they came about, his posts are very interesting, and are a good read.

But basically Ero/Hentai games are dating sims, and they are unique part of the Japan's gaming world.

2004-12-20, 20:52
Thought I should give my thoughts on what I think of a recent Ero-game I got.It's a game from ELF company and It's called 同級生(Doukyuusei) for Windows. It's a remake of the old DOS versions of the game that goes by the same title. Since this is a remake, changes are to be expected right? Well if you played the DOS version before playing this, most of those changes aren't good at all.

There were a tons of problems with the game, Like Takurou(The main character A.K.A. you.) not being the same guy he was in the original DOS version,How they changed some of the girls Love scenes(Like Hiromi. didn't like her change at all. And can anyone tell me who would fall asleep in a love hotel before you do anything?? ),How you almost absolutely HAVE to meet a girl as much as you can after the love scene to win them.(Reiko got me my first time on that area. And I'm still having trouble getting Yayoi to stop saying she likes me as a little brother when I confess.)

There were some changes to the game that I liked. Like how everyone and I mean EVERYONE but the main character is voiced,Some of the new CGs in the game, how bright and pretty it looks compared to the DOS version, And the complete remake of the girls endings. Reiko's ending was kind of nice. They both grew old together, and Takurou dies. I thought that was so sad. Plus Misa Tanaka's ending connects to Doukyuusei 2, and I thought Misa saying good bye to Takurou before getting on the train to Eighty Eight Town(Where Doukyuusei 2 takes place) Was a nice touch.

My biggest complaint with the game and this is a big problem, is just like
Doukyuusei 2, IT'S IN FULL SCREEN!!! There's no way I can put the game
into a window so I can easily type up the text and translate later
like I did with Kakyuusei 2.There's also no way I can minimize the
game so I can look at a guide and switch back. I would always have to
keep turning the game off and on just to look at a guide. Sigh: I
can't just ask my friend to borrow his laptop like I did last time either.

Anyway its a good game I recommend it. But I also recommend trying the DOS version if you can. For those who also played do you guys mind sharing your opinions of this game Windows version or DOS or both?

Happy new year topic. reviving this back up to see if more discussion can be had. Anyway it's been quite a while since I've played an Ero-game, I've been too busy with other games and an X-box 360 to concern myself with Ero-games but lately I've been starting to miss playing them so I'm trying to come up with which Ero-games are worth my time and money.

I'm thinking about AV-King from Elf but I would like to hear more opinions about it first before I decide to spend 90 bucks on it. So any opinions?

Nekoneko Soft, you'll be missed.
Thanks for that tidbit, I had no idea they were closing. Was Nekoneko part of Livedoor or something? Their info statement just sounds like "now that Ramune was made into TV anime, we've achieved everything we set out to do". Weird.

Or, is the Japanese game business imploding? Mega-mergers. Capcom's DS "Phoenix Wright" out-of-print after only a few months. F&C stripped their website of all their history (last year, they still listed every game that Fairytale, Cocktailsoft and Dreamsoft ever made but it's all gone now except for recent stuff)? Weird.

I think some of the speculation went along the lines that the NekoNekoStyle was no longer profitable and people want to try something new. I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with Livedoor; besides, the Livedoor incident broke out later(?).

Nekoneko Soft's closure has nothing to do with Livedoor, Kataoka-san said himself on Nekoneko Soft's site that it was simply not feasible to carry on Nekoneko Soft at their current scale anymore, both financially and in stance.

But the final game that they're going to leave us, Scarlett (http://www.din.or.jp/~nekoneko/game.htm), is looking like it's going to be a good one. I'm very interested in the fact that the game setting will not be restricted to "some town in Japan" but rather "all over the world". It's got an adventure-thriller feel to it.

*already had it preordered*

Am trying to make sense of this:



The cat cat software was announced presently with " the scarlet " of March 24th sale schedule in the midst of developing, becoming the last work of the cat cat software but with the ソフマップシカゴ scarlet < AA > Reservation started, the reservation corner was made. With ソフマップシカゴ " start of long-awaited cat cat software new work reservation! Akiba is sprouted vermilion! " And so on you wrote, " the delusion non- defeat/miss master " POP was attached.

Becomes last title of the cat cat software the scarlet which < AA > According to cat cat software > game introduction, ' it is not the meaning where the sword and magic and the robot come out, whether saying, it is not the normal indicating which designates normal town as the stage. The tempo where the foot arrives to possible limit area of the good amusement work is thought. ' With must be.

According to the ウィキペディア, the cat cat software " is not to see " with one member of the " caricature partner brand ", " silver " so far the エロゲメーカー which sells " cat cat fan disk " " red -Aka- " " ラムネ " and so on. The ラムネ was done also animation conversion, the promotion of animation has been done with the アキバ. In addition, ending in the diary, ' vis-a-vis the user's registration postcard sending back person " it does and the ょ is being gratuitous, the software house whose fan service is careful ' with it has become e.g., it manages ぼ り fan club ".

The cat cat software with the news January 20th came to the point of with receiving ' with the scarlet which presently is in the midst of producing, as a cat cat software last work. Besides the fact that ' with you have announced, also one Oka of representation as for the person, the MMR diary (January 20th renewal amount) with, ', the variety you searched the fact that at a level of the current cat, it continues to live, public finance and that stance, it is is, but the excessiveness we would like to see, was. ' With it is written.



ah, the limits of google-engrishator :D

I think it's actually more respectable for them to go out with a bang rather than with a bust. It will make many fans remember them fondly and think, "those were the days". Nekonekosoft's attitude sort of reminds me of Studio Ghibli, who stated that when they stop making movies, they will just close shop. Though a business, they have respect for the artform they produce. If they feel that they are running out of steam, just leave a positive legacy rather than churn out mediocre titles and find oneself slowly sinking into lacklusterness (? can't find the correct term to use)

Currently? Nothing atm. I really need the stuff in English, no new stocks are around (they're mostly pirate anyway), and insani hasn't put out a demo recently.

So I finally got my physical copy of MuvLuv Alternative today (allthough I've been playing it since Friday). I'm currently at 12/6, and so far it's among the best games I've ever played. The references to the previous parts and the sudden revelations have given me cold shivers and gooze gumps a number of times. I totally approve of the decision to use widescreen format, as do I think that the slight animations like moving lips and eyes really makes quite a difference. The soundtrack is very good as well. Looks like I'll cut down on sleep for a couple of days.

It's been a LONG time since I've played it, but in the maze, you eventually get to a point when the party realizes they are going in circles and gets a hint. I don't exactly remember what I did though. I think it might've had something to do with the scenery.

I say it's the best ending that can be made. Unless should Takeru be not tied as the inga-doutai (I have no idea how to call this in English) at the end, he could try to better things that befell the fate of everyone that he lost in the alternate world as well.

Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the story.

I say it's the best ending that can be made. Unless should Takeru be not tied as the inga-doutai (I have no idea how to call this in English) at the end

Conductor of Fate

My dissapointment is he went through a lot only to forget everything again. I don't like reset endings that much. Especially full reset endings.
However, I smell a few fan discs in the making.

Say, I have a few question

what happened to all the other lives that he lived through? Did that timeline still go on after he died? Is there a daugher of him and (insert 207th squad member name) still fighting a decisive battle against BETA at the moment? I'm not sure about that part.

Also, where is Gouda Johji when you need him? Too Super Robot for this genre? :)
And Ayu, how could Meiya's counterpart not make an appearance?

Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the story.


i agree with that, but it left me feeling irritated that there was no other choice but to resort to a yume-ochi ending since what made him the inga doutai was dead. nothing gained, nothing lost for takeru.
even worse, the alternative world was still doomed in the end. if it were possible, i wish there were some way that takeru could still stay in the alternative world.

He wanted to at first. As he said, he's already a denizen of "that" world.

Too bad quantum physics wouldn't have any of that.

I'd like to think that Second Lieutenant Shirogane Takeru died along with the rest of the Valkyries, and remember him as that.

From Shirogane's POV he had a 2 year+ experience from his previous memory, but all the other girls are literally just a months out of cadet school.

He did graduate as a 2nd Lieutenant (少尉), the rank difference is only two pay grades. More often then not field promotions comes quick when you're in an all-out war (next highest rank takes the place of whoever dies).

Man, how do you people find all these games. I've been looking for the Shuffle! game and the Canvas game for like ever and can't find it. Where can i find games like these? Anyway, besides that, id have to say my favorite is star platnium. Fairly good story line and a awsome card game.
Ever tried online shops like Himeya (http://www.himeyashop.com/)?

Before I go on, "Higurashi no Naku Koroni" isn't an ero-game, nor an ero-doujin game (meaning there are no sex scenes). It's a normal doujin-game.



Let me recall what was sold last year....

School Days - very interesting, but very buggy

Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Irona - Nabacchi! Shizuka-Gozen!! (if you don't know what I mean, you don't know seiyuus who uses pseudonyms)

Fate hollow ataraxia - what can I say? It's TYPE-MOON

ToHeart2 XRATED - there is nothing more that makes me go (*´Д`)ハァハァ than hearing Manaka's voice during ero-scenes. moe~.

Otome wa Boku ni Koi o Shiteru - when a guy can be the moe-est than the other girls

Tsuyokiss - tsundere!! tsundere!! moe~!!!!

Tick! Tack! - It was cheap so that's why I bought it. Typical Navel story. Short and boring, but extremely moe~ art.

At least these are the ones that I recall playing. The others are just stacked up onto my tsumige- ("waiting to be played, but probably won't in the near foreseeable future") pile. The pile alone consists of over fifty games right now...orz

Oops, forgot the thread name when I included that. I just remember you praising it's kawaii-/moe?-ness.

...which sounds a lot like the earlier Miss Each Other, which was technically interesting but mediocre otherwise. Call me a Nishida fan.

They finally released an artbook for 2000's Tsukihime... Who says otaku have a short attention span?

Muv-Luv Alternative - Great game despite being so linear. Some of the scenes in game will scar Muv-luv fans for life >.< Definitely not for the fainthearted...

Pia Carrot e Youkoso!! G.O. - I believe this is the best installment so far. More characters, well developed stories, and really memorable endings. Mizaki <3

Boy Meets Girl (ボーイミーツガール) - Not to be confused with the anime. Really beautiful CGs (as expected from Frontwing)

There's a few more, but I haven't had the time to play some of them lately... term papers... *kusu*

It's one of those games that you're simply "required" to play if you knew anything about it. But yeah, it's a great one.

When I played the trial version from Dengeki Hime's demo disk, I liked it (the art and music). But once I saw Nanami's interview, I was forced to rush to the nearest online store and preorder the game. Mao-shama~ killed me.

You know, I suspect most non-Japanese reading people fast forward to the H-scenes and leave it at that...

I tend to listen to the voiced characters and try and understand what's going on from that. Then again, playing eroge is the sole reason I learn so much kanji, simply because I can hear how it's spoken.

Bringing this topic back from the dead...

Haven't had any time before to purchase me some Ero-games but I've finally got me more Ero-games to play. Instead of buying Refrain blue like I had planned I had gotten me EL instead because it was cheaper even if it was only by a couple of bucks. EL one of Elf's older remakes, although surprisengly short and extremely linear(Only one person was winnable) was decent, the plot twist was very unexpected. Too bad my somewhat limited Japanese couldn't completely comprehend what it was to the fullest. It's not worthy enough to be one of my favorites but it was still a fun game none the less.

After buying Refrain Blue, I'm deciding if I want to buy Elf all stars Datsuijan 3 but the insane price for it even if it is an Ero-game(An Ero-mahjong game to be precise.) is holding me back. I dunno if I want to spend so much money on a Mahjong game.

2006-04-11, 20:01
Than don't buy it yet and wait for price to drop a litte, like any other game. Simple no? :D

^ Why can't they freaking voice the damn 'hero', specifically in this game when they voiced Soldier G and Child D and even voiced 'Roel-sama', which made that whole event 1000x awesomer, but can't voice the main. WTH. I want a headcount of how many people actually follow through the whole theory of voicing the hero themselves in their mind, when they go and give his past self a kick ass voice.

Anyway, </rant>, looks like plenty of stuff coming at end of April to hold off until DCII and Summer Days, like Nekonekosoft's, and Shana and SOS-dan's illustator's.

Games I'm currently working through:
Scarlett (http://www.din.or.jp/~nekoneko/) (Nekoneko Soft)
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/2808/c227665package6nn.jpg

The game is really different from your typical bishojo game because the setting is huge: all over the world. So rather than having the entire game confined to some generic Japanese town/city (or worse yet, some generic school) with a splatter of characters, you get to go all over the world and meet all sort of people from different countries. The first eroge to have a hollywood action thriller feel to it? Certainly, it's refreshing to see a game with such a large world view and such a diverse cast. It's not very often you get to see visual novels like these, so this one is a joy to play through. (Amelia is cute, go super dojikko~ (taking a bath in the sink was brilliant :heh: ), but then again, so is Kurou ^^; )

Besides that, I'm just sad to see that this is actually Nekoneko Soft's last game. Kataoka Tomo-san is a great scenario writer, and I hope I can see his stories again in the future.

true tears (http://lacryma.info/) (Lacryma)
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/9913/c222545package3sc.jpg

Now then, now then, the art by Izumi Rei-sensei was the main reason why I bought this game. Even if the game sucked, at least I got to support her. ^^;

Well, how was it?

...Just to say this first, I haven't finished the game yet (not even close). In any case, I went down Rui's route first...

......Hmm, lukewarm, this story is. I can feel the character and the story, but it required an effort on my part. The game's schedule system really made the story feel broken up into mini-episodes rather than one big story. As a result, sometime it felt unnatural for a serious event to "suddenly occur". I loved the art, the musics and voice were all nice as well, and even the story concepts were excellent. But the way it was presented really weakened the impact quite a bit.

Key games like AIR and CLANNAD were much more "cryable" because their stories fully immerses you, and then hit you hard with a tear-jerker after you became fully absorbed in the story. On the other hand, true tears is meant to be a tear-jerker to begin with (hence the title), but the "immersion" aspect could've been done better: you can't cry for the characters if you can't feel for them.

Really, the game is great in all departments, the art, music, acting, story are all excellent. But the execution is just unexciting.

Well, I'm not done with the game yet, so maybe it's a little early for me to say all this, somebody give me the ability to stop time so I can finish it. m(_ _)m

Upcoming games I'm looking forward to:
H2O (http://www.makura-soft.com/h2o/index.htm) (Makura)
http://img359.imageshack.us/img359/9881/c236105package7ex.jpg

Makura's debut game.

I was drawn to this game by the super fine art and the interesting story premise: the main character is a blind young man who moved to the countryside to live with his uncle due to his father having issues with work. Also, the game is split into 2 major sections: Meeting and Reunion. During the first part of the game, the story focuses on how Takuma got to meet the main heroines and how he became involved with them. After the 1st portion ends, the game enters the 2nd portion, which portrays the reunion between Takuma and the girls after a few years of seperation. By this point, we can see how each girl has grown throughout the years (both physically and mentally), and we can watch how our main characters finally complete their unfinished stories. There's also a 3rd portion of the game that portrays the life of Takuma with the selected heroine after they finally get together in the 2nd portion of the game.

What can I say? Sometimes, a game just clicks with you, and H2O is one for me. I watched the demo movie (which you can download from the official site linked above), and I loved it. I actually bought the July PUSH magazine just for find out more about it and play the trial version...

And after finishing the trial version, I can say this game is a winner for me. The art quality is incredibly high, the characters are all very nicely presented (a little bit on the stereotypical side, but it's obvious they were aiming for that childish naive feel (because there's a hidden side to that)). On top of that, I absolutely love the main character, Takuma! I have never seen such a funny blind guy before. ^^; The serious portions of the story, particularly about Takuma and his blindness, as well as Hayami being bullied at school, were really absorbing, I find myself wanting to know more and more about the story and where it's going... A sign of a good novel!

And the deformed character art used during comedy moments are so cute~! (>ヮ<)

For what it's worth, I played the trial version (first chapter of the story). The animation is still choppy in places, just like the previous game. But if you think of this as an "animated visual novel" rather than a full-fledged animation, then it becomes much more forgivable.

Anyway, since the chapter was played out from Setsuna's viewpoint, I was a little surprised to see a selection point when Makoto showed up. Then again, only a hetare (loser) like Makoto is capable of even THINKING of calling his little sister Itaru "my girlfriend". ^^; (I chose "my treasure". And surprisingly, Makoto is actually capable of being gentle and sweet. ^^; Must be a fluke)

Okay, expanding a bit...

I can't comment on the 'professional' translators who work in the industry, as they tend to be like the ones in manga or anime...work for hire, some go overboard in Japanese-ness while others are ok with keeping the translations basic.

Of the fan translators I only know of the insani people (gp32 and Peter Jolly). One being a medical doctor in training and another being an Englishman like you, no doubt I regard them with high respect.

If you mean something like AGTH hooked up to a machine translation, it would probably get some of the simple, straightforward sentences right, but would probably barf on slang, characterization, nuance, subtlety, etc. So essentially, you'll have a murky understanding of what's going on, but any finesse in the writing or any subtleties will be lost. In essence, take a poorly(inaccurately) translated fansub, and sprinkle in grammar and flow problems ^_^;

Miyu in robot "suit"

Mao's really lovable though. I don't think I've ever seen any game character talk that fast before. :p


I like "Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku wo" and "Princess Serenade" Better, at the moment.

Kono Aozora has the best student council pres character ever!! :D

About H2O: The main character is blind? Hmmmm, but you can still see what's going on. I assume it's not entirely from the main character's point of view or something? Either way, this game sounds really interesting.
Takuma is completely blind. He can "imagine" what the world looks like, and that's the image we see on the screen.

For example, when he "imagined" what Hinata looked like in the beginning, she looked like this:
http://img469.imageshack.us/img469/6946/hinatahead1ev.th.jpg (http://img469.imageshack.us/my.php?image=hinatahead1ev.jpg)

But when he got to touch her head and felt the plastic headband on her head, his "image" of her changed accordingly:
http://img469.imageshack.us/img469/8323/hinatahead28ge.th.jpg (http://img469.imageshack.us/my.php?image=hinatahead28ge.jpg)

However, Takuma cannot imagine the colors (which is a big theme of the game, Takuma "losing his colors") (If you had "blindness effect" turned on, that is. If you don't want to play the game in "Takuma-vision", you can turn the blindness effect off in config).

Example:
Blindness Effect On
http://img469.imageshack.us/img469/6148/beon2wz.th.jpg (http://img469.imageshack.us/my.php?image=beon2wz.jpg)
Blindness Effect Off
http://img469.imageshack.us/img469/7803/beoff9ns.th.jpg (http://img469.imageshack.us/my.php?image=beoff9ns.jpg)

Either way, you'll see something (it wouldn't be very fun if the entire game was played against a blank screen ^^; ).

---
The game is really great though, both Hayami and Takuma are "wounded" people themselves (Takuma losing his sight and colors, and Hayami losing her faith in people). When Hayami licked Takuma's wounds that he got because he protected her from the bullies, it really felt like these two were meant to survive together by "licking each other's wounds". Kinda bittersweet.

Can't wait for it to be released on 6/23. ^^

My hope of doing Itaru may become a reality in Summer Days. Of course, Setsuna is my main reason I'm gonna get SD Alt. <3 <3!
...Itaru? :upset:

....First of all, I'm pretty much 100% sure that it's not going to happen. As far as all the magazine coverages indicate, the worse you can do is sleep with Kokoro (Kotonoha's little sister).

But really... Itaru? :upset: She's like 5, man.

re h2o:


Yeah, I liked that touch with the hairband.

I'll probably have to play the whole thing with AGTH, but thanks for clarifying.


EDIT: Damn. AGTH doesn't work with H2O, at least not now (waiting for people to help me at hongfire). I wish some programming genius came up with a fool-proof way to hook the text of all games.

The art for H2O is defintely beautiful to say the least. Just looking at the character art makes me want to play the demo. The story is pretty interesting as well, but it's a bit odd that they have a 'blindness effect' in black and white... Last I checked color blindness and actual blindness are two different conditions ^^;

Sadly, there's a tall backlog of unplayed games is piling up to an alarming height.. (;´∀` )=3 (I still haven't played D.C. II yet!)

The story is pretty interesting as well, but it's a bit odd that they have a 'blindness effect' in black and white... Last I checked color blindness and actual blindness are two different conditions ^^;
Yes, that's why I said the black-and-white images are all Takuma's "imagination", everything we see are simply his interpretation of the world (he explained it pretty well at the beginning of the demo). He can't actually see anything at all (but the game obviously can't be just text against a black screen, now can it?). The inability to even imagine colors ("lost his colors"), on the other hand, is a more deep-rooted problem. Takuma wasn't born blind, he was blinded gradually due to a mysterious illness when he was a child. So he *knew* what "colors" were like. However, for some reason, he lost them over time.

Either way, the pinwheel event scene with Hayami near the end of the demo was really nice, watching it made me really want to find out what'll happen next for Takuma and Hayami. And I'm really intrigued by that odd "good kid" "bad kid" class system shared by the students as well. And the reason why Hayami is disliked so much by the others, etc....

As for the game engine, I'm not sure, but when you first boot up the game, before the window's title change, the title bar says:
Ethornell - Buriko General Interpreter ver 1.64 (build: 407) with Wave Master ver 2.0006DS8

Hmmm.. If H2O uses the BGI engine, than it should be similar to games from August-soft, like 夜明け前より瑠璃色な. I'll need to download the demo first, but I think it should work with the userhookw (/H option).

I've just decided to finally complete all the endings to Crescendo. Finally will get to unlock that secret character. I am amazed at how replayable this game is, even after reading through 12+ hours worth of scenarios. I kick myself for taking too long to get around to this, as this title has been out for a long time already.

Usually an English erogame is mundane enough that I'm satisfied with one-two main storybranch good endings.

I'm now playing the space between ~white labyrinth~ (karekare) (http://www.insani.org/karekare.html)

I'm not sure if its ero, since even though its just a demo, it's supposedly 1/2 of the story and I've only just begun. But here's why I like it...you play the role of a girl who's falling in love with a kendo captain. I'm loving it already because it plays in typical shoujo fashion, with "Wataru-kun...suki!", "What is he thinking right now?", "OMG they look so pretty!" and glompings galore. Well the story narration is not exactly groundbreaking, but its pretty concise and not dull unlike some of the fetish-based interaction I've gotten used to and I was sort of expecting.

I think this is a girls' visual novel, I was taken aback by the first scene of potential love interest and was thinking "hmmm please don't let this be a BL story" (I couldn't really tell the gender of my main character from the name alone), so when it finally dawned on me when others were calling me "Mizuho-chan", I was like hell yeah I am a heterosexual female!

Okay, back to playing. :D

------------------------------

The nice challenge here is the indirect method of getting the boy you like. Whereas in male-protagonist game would look like this:

Go to Ayame's Room
Go to Reika's Room
Go to Miaka's Room

Here the choices are more unpredictable and thus more fun:

Pull a blanket over Wataru-kun
Go downstairs

...which leads to molestation by the other dude


Now I like these choices:

It's all Wataru-kun's fault ("Wataru-kun no baaaaka!")
It's all Kakeru-kun's fault

The trick now is how to fend off the playboy while figuring out how to make your love interest grow a backbone and state his interest in you. Which got me thinking, male-protagonist games are too direct and too easy....it would be great if they had some actual competition so that a new choice appears, for example something like this:

Beat the crap out of your best friend so he doesn't touch your lady.

Anyways, this is becoming highly replayable, since I cannot predict how situations will turn out, having only indirect but not direct means of accomplishing them. I appreciate now how much easier it is being a dude.

Highly unlikely if the cast for the game is the same as in the anime since virtually none of the VAs do ero roles. There could be a report of the PS2 game to an all ages version for PC. But not an adult version, unless Leaf hires a new completely new set of VAs and records a new set of voicing. Which would be rather suprising.

Then again, if the PS2 version virtually is the PC version with stripped sex scenes and doesn't have any changes regarding script I'm sure someone will find a way to extract the voices form the resource files and import them to the PC version. Then you would have a PC version with voices for all situations except for the sex scenes.

Looking back, Leaf did cross-port a number of their games from PC to Console and back to PC again for the improved versions with voice etc. New versions of those PC games (To Heart PSE and Comic Party DCE) were all-age ones. I also want a Utawarerumono re-port to PC.

Are you sure about this? I know that many seiyu use false names when they are cast in ero games/ero anime. Such is the case for the cast of SHUFFLE! The same seiyu voiced the original ero PC game voiced the non-ero anime, but the names that appear in the credits are different. Perhaps the seiyu in Utawarerumono would voice an ero PC version if their names were to be changed in the credits.

Perhaps the seiyu in Utawarerumono would voice an ero PC version if their names were to be changed in the credits.

The difference here is that Shuffle! was originally a voiced game. There isn't really a problem having a VA doing ero roles do the same role in a normal anime again. Such is the case with Yuko Gotou (http://gph.sakura.ne.jp/va_memo/system/vadb.cgi?action=view_ind&value=00062&namecode=1) (Kaede) who does a large number of roles in games but also in regular anime. Then you have VAs that almost only do eroge roles and the animes based on those. Hiroko Taguchi (http://gph.sakura.ne.jp/va_memo/system/vadb.cgi?action=view_ind&value=00015&namecode=3)and Hitomi (http://gph.sakura.ne.jp/va_memo/system/vadb.cgi?action=view_ind&value=00003&namecode=5) to mention two. Then you have those who don't do ero roles at all. All VAs doing main roles in Utaware belong here. Like Ryouka Yuzuki (http://gph.sakura.ne.jp/va_memo/system/vadb.cgi?action=view_ind&value=00334&namecode=7) (Eruruw). Well, actually she did have a role in Cool Devices, but that was quite a while ago.

You can look up the rest of the Utaware cast if you want. You can get the names here (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%86%E3%81%9F%E3%82%8F%E3%82%8C%E3%82%8B%E3%8 2%82%E3%81%AE#.E7.99.BB.E5.A0.B4.E3.82.AD.E3.83.A3 .E3.83.A9.E3.82.AF.E3.82.BF.E3.83.BC) and look them up here. (http://gph.sakura.ne.jp/va_memo/system/vadb.cgi) Just change the pulldown menu to 声優名 .
In the case with the ToHart2 (PS2) to ToHeart2 XRATED port, Leaf picked a cast that could be used for both. As you can see at the same page. Just search for ToHeart2 but change the menu to タイトル .

Heart de Roommate(it's good, until you get to the second half, where it becomes a soap opera with no choices to be taken)

I always buy the ones that I believe I wouldn't regret spending my money on. With the excepation of SOME GOOD ero games that have been translated into English, There's ALOT of other ero-games out there and since it can be expensive to purchase them outside of Japan it's best to make sure you buy the ones you know you'll enjoy. However for me at the moment due to money issues I haven't been able to buy me one.

I'm currently playing some of my favorite and older Ero-games(Kakyuusei 2,Kakyuusei 1, Doukyuusei 2) to help me get over my inability to purchase some new Ero-games for now.

bishounen_blue
2006-07-06, 11:26
I purchase all the games that I play. I must say, though, that buying ero games outside of Japan is expensive. Japanese games are expensive to begin with, and you'd expect to pay more because of international shipping, but that's not all there is to it. Places like Himeya Shop that ship ero games internationally sell them at retail price. The difference between retail price and many stores prices is much larger for ero games than for console games. For example, at ero game retailer comshop I perordered Leaf's upcoming game フルアニ for 6,580 yen, tax included. That comes out to $56.90. And it's not cheaper because I preordered it, that's just what they charge, even though the retail price is the standard 9,240 yen. At the time of this entry one US dollar is 115.65 Japanese yen. 9,240 yen is $79.90. That's the retail price plus tax. Yet, because people overseas have little choice in where they purchase their games, they can charge $95 for it.

http://www.himeyashop.com/product_info.php/cPath/30_54/products_id/4224

Then you have to pay another $19 for shipping, so you're paying $114 for a game that someone in Japan pays $56.90 for. Of course, the shipping charge is to be expected. There's really nothing that can be done about it, and you can save there by ordering multiple things at once. Still, it would be nice to see someone like comshop start offering international shipping. Oh, and comshop, as well as many other places, offer used games as well. They aren't "used" like that copy of MegaMan X I got from Game Stop in America, that would only play some of the stages. You see any game on the shelf used the day after it went on sale, if not the same day. And they are always in practically new condition. So, just another way to cut the price down another 500 to 1000 yen. So yeah, piracy is no good but the distrobution of these games overseas leaves something to be desired.

At the time of this entry one US dollar is 115.65 Japanese yen. 9,240 yen is $79.90. That's the retail price plus tax. Yet, because people overseas have little choice in where they purchase their games, they can charge $95 for it.

http://www.himeyashop.com/product_info.php/cPath/30_54/products_id/4224

Then you have to pay another $19 for shipping, so you're paying $114 for a game that someone in Japan pays $56.90 for. Of course, the shipping charge is to be expected. There's really nothing that can be done about it, and you can save there by ordering multiple things at once. Still, it would be nice to see someone like comshop start offering international shipping. Oh, and comshop, as well as many other places, offer used games as well. They aren't "used" like that copy of MegaMan X I got from Game Stop in America, that would only play some of the stages. You see any game on the shelf used the day after it went on sale, if not the same day. And they are always in practically new condition. So, just another way to cut the price down another 500 to 1000 yen. So yeah, piracy is no good but the distrobution of these games overseas leaves something to be desired.
I discussed this topic at length over at another forum, and yes, buying bishoujo games (visual novels, H-games, whatever you want to call it) is an expensive hobby if you live outside Japan (heck, even inside Japan, it's an expensive hobby).

H-game prices are usually pre-determined according to their types: a full-fledged game typically runs for the basic 8800 yen (9240 yen with tax), limited editions with bonus goodies might run for 9800 yen (10290 yen with tax), etc... But those are really nothing more than MSRPs (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price), the real street price of a game depends a lot on the game's popularity, brand, demands, etc.. Generally, nobody would ever sell a bishoujo game in Japan for the full retail price (amazon.co.jp, for example, always sells their bishoujo games with a big discount (~25%)).

International dealers like Himeya don't really have to worry about competitions, so they can sell their games at MSRP (or even above :upset: ) without worrying about losing sales to others.

But that's also why places like Palet Mail is popping up: international dealers that offer competitive pricings as well as hard-to-find (doujin) goods. To use your FullAni as an example, it's listed for $71.99 over at Palet Mail: still expensive by Japanese standards, but far cheaper than Himeya.

Hopefully, more stores like them will be popping up over time, so maybe we'll begin to see more competitive pricings.

Well, I'm back to playing Baldr Force, now that I got my PS2 to play import games :D It's quite amusing at the changes they made in order to be able to sell Baldr Force as a console game. Looking forward to the Tsukina route, as that'll probably require the most changes...

I finally got around to playing H2O today and it has completely taken over my free time~ For a school drama, it's absolutely refreshing with it's multi-faceted characters and compelling background story. Each scene leaves a solid impression of the depth of storyline and possible connections between the heroines.

~ah.. and not to mention it's absolutely hilarious! I literally fell on the floor laughing during the scene with Hamaji when "she" confessed her true disposition! Takuma's complex reaction was priceless ^^

School Days...Summer Days...are they related in any way(no english translation I guess)?

PGilis
2006-07-21, 11:55
If i remember well, SCHOOL DAYS is a full-animated bishojo game featuring romance, drama and suspence with sociophatic psycho-moe schoolgirls in a school-life setup.

SUMMER DAYS is a full-animated sequel with an alternative story featuring the same girls less-sociophatic but in a more romantic, less bloody story. Instead the school, the scenario is a beach during the summer.

Unfortunately, the two are just in japanese. But you can check at least the demos.

This should hook all the text for the game. Use /KS1 if necessary.

So I'm playing H2O now. This game is sooooo good. :)



I haven't played far enough to see exactly why Hayami is so hestitant to trust people again, but her pain definetly feels real and not contrived like some stories might. I can feel for her.

Hinata is so cute, especially when she charges Takuma in order to get that fateful encounter thing. :heh:

And Otoha is so awesome. She's just so nice, optimistic, and considerate too. She's supposedly a ghost of some kind, and I think her character is a nice take on the subject of dead people. Normally you'd think the dead are filled with sorrow and regret, but then again the dead are no longer tied down to the mundane trappings of society, money, status, and other such nuances and suffering, so it's no wonder they'd be so considerate and nice. It's just something that I thought was great. :)


And no one's done a blind guy as well as Makura have done Takuma.:p

I'm crawling slowly through Ever17. After first 2 endings, Tsugumi's and Sora's, I can say it's fine game, maybe not as great as some were saying, but ok, maybe I'll be more positive once I'm done with other endings.
Also playing MuvLuv (thought I should play it first before starting MuvLuv Alternative), not sure if it's my cup of tea though it's probably the funniest eroge Ive had chance of playing.

Ah~~~ Finally finished part of the backlog of games I've left during the summer. (;゚∀゚)=3

Here are a few reviews from some of the top candidates on the list~


H2O [Makura] - For their first project, this is one excellent game. Good production, casting, and overall storyline. The music is also beautiful, consisting of acoustical and piano tracks and a wonderful ED inserts. The afterstory is a welcome addition as it fleshes out the characters personalities. However, I just can't help but not like the darker H-scenes that come up during the latter half.
Score 86/100

Nursery Rhyme [Lump of Sugar] - Pretty standard fare Bishoujo game. Nothing to really note here except for the excellent scenario script for Yukina, one of the main heroines. The story does have an interesting premise surrounding magic, but fails to utilize it well, resulting in a somewhat half-hearted attempt. Still, it was a fun and enjoyable experience.
Score 76/100

Yoake Mae Yori Ruriirona [August] - I really had high hopes for their latest work, especially since Operation Sanctuary is one of my favorite games. Still, once you complete Feena's scenario, the rest of the game becomes a bit bland. I can see why they choose to have her as a mandatory heroine during first play...
Score 78/100 (if Feena only = 95/100)

Lamune [Nekonekosoft] - I really tried to like this game, I really did. Especially since I loved Mizuiro. However, Lamune falls short from being a great game, to just being slightly above average. The dialogue was a bit stiff, scenarios were short and didn't focus well on key events. Usually when you complete a scenario, you feel a sense of completion. However, with Lamune you feel like something is missing once the credits roll... wierd..
Score 74/100

Amanatsu [Chuablesoft] - It looks like another summer game because.... well it is one. Still the characters here are very memorable, especially Sakurako. I would recommend this one to those who like simple, easy reading.
Score 81/100


...And my highly recommended title for the summer.... *drum roll*  (゚∀゚) ゚ ・*:.。. .。.:*・

Bra-ban! by Yuzusoft. This is definitely on the list of the must play titles this year (it's already on the getchu best list after only 3 months!) Bra-ban! has some of the most enjoyable characters I've seen thus far. Right from the opening scene (or punch, maybe?) the story flows naturally with slapstick comedy. The chibi scenes are sure to get you rolling on the floor. If you haven't noticed, this title doesn't carry much drama, but it's sure to leave a impression you can't forget. The music is absolutely excellent. From the meloncholic tune of the clarinet to the sluggish sound of the trombone, each BGM clearly reflects the feeling of the moment. Definitely an awesome composition!

Currently, my favorites are two titles from Softhouse Chara.

グリンスヴァールの森の中~成長する学園~
Greensvaile No Mori No Naka ~Seichousuru Gakuen~

巣作りドラゴン
Suzukuri Dragon

I love Softhouse Chara games because of the lovable voice acting, the humor and the addictive gameplay. What also distinguish Softhouse Chara from the other Ero-game companies is their awesome omake section: filled with humor and little nuances of the Japanese language, it shows the company truly put alot of heart into making their games.

Ah! Don't let that mislead you. The games I review were the top candidates on the list for best games I've played so far this year. Being the top 5 out of 30+ odd games is pretty good score in itself so it's definitely on the recommend list~ ( ゚∀゚)b

It's kind of difficult to explain, but if you've played August-soft games before, Yoake Mae Yori Ruriirona will feel very nostalgic. The homey athmosphere, the surrealistic twist in the story, a past with lost memories, first encounters, sad farewells. These little nuances in the story give it the sort game that you would expect from August.

So play it! I have a feeling that you'll definitely enjoy it, especially Feena's story. Also, the animated version is coming soon this fall, so all the more better to play the actual game before seeing a hacked version of it! ゚∀゚)ノ

The only this year's eroge I liked so far was Scarlett (http://www.din.or.jp/~nekoneko/game.htm) (Nekoneko), which was fun and well done overall.

Also played この青空に約束を- (http://www.web-giga.com/aozora/aozora.htm) (Giga) and もしも明日が晴れならば (http://www.clearrave.co.jp/product/mosiraba/index.html) (Palette) but in the end found both games kinda mediocre especially later one, kinda makes me wonder why those titles have such high score on erogamescape, maybe in the sea of all-moe-and-no-substance nonsense thats ruling the market they stand out somehow. Also started Imitation Lover (http://www.light.gr.jp/light/products/imilover/) (Light) but never finished....maybe some day, I liked angstiness of it.

As for future games, liked the demo of PP-ピアニッシモ (http://www.gungnir.co.jp/innocentgrey/products/pro_pianissimo/pp_index.html) (Innocent Grey) though i think it won't be as good as Cartagra, and the first fan disc of ef (http://www.minori.ph/lineup/ef/index.html) (Minori) which was basically 20min intro for the actual game(s). Also Silvery White (http://www.ohgetsu.jp/hakugin/haku.html) (Ohgetsu) movie was good, looking forward for the demo.

I just started Braban. Pretty interesting. I haven't hit any mind-shattering story developments yet (of course, I'm still struggling to get AGTH working with this thing) but it's so far worth playing. Pretty cute characters. The focus on a school music group is one I haven't seen before.

I wish ^^; I plan to read it, but that's a long way off considering I can't read it yet. Should make some good progress when I can dedicate most of my time to learning come September though... but until then I'll probably hold off watching the anime like I have with Hanihani. The designs look 'meh' and the story'll no doubt be crushed up too much though so I don't think it'll be any real loss. Thanks for the reassurance though :) Hanihani comes first of course, only read insani's demo but loved it, art, characters, music and all.

Wow, you actually got readable results out of AGTH? You have to share your secret sometime :p I've always wondered how some people seem to come out of a AGTHed game with a good understanding of it... unless you're just using it to hook the kanji to look up complicated ones on a PC dictionary I guess.

And as for Jun,It's so true xD Damn artists making boys look so criminally girly like that. I'd have preferred a reverse-trap, but noooo. Oh well :heh:

Newprimus
2006-08-18, 21:54
All I'm using is /c for Braban, but the problem is it takes each piece of dialogue and repeats it like..... god knows how many times. :heh:

Happiness, on the other hand, simply refuses to run when I try to hook AGTH on it. :(


As for understanding it, at the very least all the key words are typically translated properly. I can read most of hiragana, and can understand some of the spoken words, and I've come to memorize a few kanji that keep coming up again and again in these kinds of games.

But it's still pitiful knowledge compared to someone who really knows the thing. ;)


Re. the Best list


Yep, I recognize a whole bunch of the games on there, mostly because they've all been animated. :D But being animated really is a good indicator of how good a game is. Happiness is getting animated too, so I felt compelled to try the game (and I agree).

But Cross Channel is supposed to be on that list but I don't see it. Maybe I just missed it somehow.

Maybe not how good a game is, but how successful it is would be the indicator, no? (Though both are closely intertwined)

So many great games have yet to be animated, yet so many B titles do. How unfair is this world.... ´Д`)ノ

In my experience little bit of knowledge of spoken japanese plus Fujitsu Atlas translation will give you good enough understanding of what's going on in the game, if the game is voiced that is.

Back on topic, after giving up on Muv Luv, started with Frontwing's Sora Uta and I'm liking that one much better.

You can always visit the official page, download the trial versions, and see for yourself.
http://www2.pajamas.ne.jp/prismark/index.html

I have played through all 5... 6(?) trial versions a while ago, which covered most of the early chapters. The biggest merit the game has is its atmosphere: it has a very unique story that doesn't bore you. The characters are all very unique and memorable as well. Of course, the art is top notch too, as expected of Pajamas Soft.

The only thing stopping my from buying it is the price: 12,800 yen (13,440 minus tax) for the "deluxe first-press edition" (there's no "regular edition" yet). Sure, you get a ton of bells and whistles (http://www2.pajamas.ne.jp/prismark/tokuten.html), but for those of us who want to buy the game just for the game, we're out of luck for a while until they release a regular edition in the future.

This might be too much for our resident ten-year old but you don't necessarily have to stick it out of your pants to....you know what. Heh. :DOh I see, so that's why you play these games. There was me thinking you were in it for the story... :p

As for Happiness, I'm not positive about your first question but you should play both. Why? Re:lucks has a Jun route. According to himeya it's a fandisk, which is what I thought too as it's 2000 Yen cheaper.

False dichotomy.

Doesn't have to be one thing or the other. You could easily play for both.

Think of it as a bunch of short after stories for each of the heroine's endings, plus an extra alternate story for the Jun fans. :heh:

I should clarify my question about Happiness.


Okay, let's say I install both. Now when I go play Re Lucks, will I be able to play the main, original story routes as well as the bonus ones? Or does Relucks only feature the bonus stories and if I want to play the original main stories I have to go play Happiness?

Narumi
2006-08-26, 17:17
Only the bonus stories. If you want to know the main story and the characters, you will have to play Happiness first.

Actually semi-related to the topic, does anyone know how long Narcissu (http://insani.org/narcissu.html) is? (roughly) Reason being I only get about 3 hours of peace to read these things and want to know if the impact'll be lessened if I read it in sessions about that long.

I got really excited when I saw the small infobox in the 9/2006 issue of Techgian about Mirage-soft making a new game, Anonymous (tentative name). Interesting how I managed to miss it considering I've had it for a couple of weeks and it being on the âge fanpages and all. I really liked Sokoni umiga atte and the image on the not so informative page (http://www.mirage-soft.jp/keitai/keitai.htm) looks nice. And Mirage being âge's sister brand and all, yay. I'm just hoping it will actually be out this year.

Currently playing Kishin Hishou Demonbane, but since it lacks sexual content, it doesn't really qualify for this thread I guess. Next up is Scarlett which has been waiting on my shelf for some time.

The late part in the game where Another Blood confess her feelings to Kurou would have you thinking otherwise. And there's all the pseudo yuri scene between Another Blood and Al Azif early in the game.....

Not playing any games here since it's more or less a dry season. So I shall devote my time to translating one until Winter.

I read it in it's original Japanese, but it lasted a little over 2 hours for me.

Its prequel, Narcissu side 2nd (http://stage-nana.sakura.ne.jp/), should be done by fall.

Dry season is a good thing, god knows busy people need them to work through all their tsumiges.

Well, it's Comiket season, most people are probably still happily working through their battle gains anyway.

My little brother and his friends have seen me play eroge before (of course not during an h-scene) and there's nothing embarrassing about it. They actually found it pretty interesting, but that was mainly because I was playing RPG portion of Eien no Aselia~ (;゚∀゚)=3

To make my point, while it depends on preference, eroge has many other great facets besides ecchi scenes~ Most of the games I play and review fall under this category.

Now a few more titles I've played lately~

Nanatsuiro Drops (Unisonshift Blossom)
For this, I would like to say "as expected from Unisonshift", but this one clearly blew my expectations. Nanatsuiro is a jaw droppingly amazing game. Everything simply shines, from the beautiful CG art by Ito Noiji (Haruhi/Shana fame) to the captivating character designs and their intricate relationships. The story is reminiscent of CCS, but at a more deeper, intimate level, exploring feelings, dramatic moments, ecchi humor, a multitude of scenes that aren't expressable in a regular anime. The BGM follows suit with a beautiful arrangement and main theme (the OP is amazing!) My only digress with this game is the lack of a pre-scenario for the other two heroines, Yuuki and Nadeshiko. Other than that, this is a must play for 2006!

Score 97/100 (instant win, go get it now! m9(゚∀゚ ))

School Project (A-Kaguya)
I normally don't like Kaguya games, but School Project is an exception I can live with. Basically, you have just transferred into the Discipline Committee. Unfortunately the budget is so low that the possibility of the committee disbanding is inevitable. Your mission if you choose to accept, to create havoc around the school and show to the student body that the Discipline committee is sorely needed!

Well... the story may be a bit simple, but it is the perfect situation for ecchi humor and it delivers it without fail. Each plan the committee hatches, there is bound to be scenes that will make you laugh. The story builds up nicely in the beginning as you choose the projects that interest you (or just pick the girl you like the most~) and continues so throughout the playthrough.

Score 76/100

so... uh what other activities has your brother watched you partake in while playing your ero games?:joke:


that school project game though... i d k, it looks like its on the edge of pedo stuff.


the Nanatsuiro looks interesting but uh... what is this turning into sheep stuff himeyashop is mentioning? i d k about that either.


i recently got to try the KGNE fan disc. i feel i've been deprived up until now after trying it. its definately gona be in my next game shipment. im gona play H20 soon since alot of people say its real good.

About Nanatsuiro...

According to Kisaragi-sensei (who's the only person that knows about Haru's condition, and serves as his guidance), Haru accidently drank a "transformation potion" drink from a parellel world called Figrale, but since it was designed to be used only by the people of that world, Haru's "condition" is the result of the side-effect.

Kisaragi-sensei can make a medicine that would neutralize the potion, but he requires 7 "Star Droplets" before he can make them. In order to collect "Star Droplets", special magical staffs called "Ladles"must be used, and the staff can only used by special individuals called "Spiniers". Finally, only certain special girls are chosen by the ladles to become their Spiniers. The ladle that Yuki-chan (Haru) received chose... that's right, Akihime Sumomo as its Spinier.

As for how Haru convinced Sumomo to help him, that's easy ^^ A small lie about "helping a poor plush doll return to his homeland" is all that's required to get the innocent Sumomo on board. ^^;

Yuki-chan (Haru's doll form) can't move or speak at first, just like a real doll, but thanks to a spell potion from Kisaragi-sensei, he was able to regain the ability to move and speak.Masaharu/Haru is the protagonist lucky enough to be turned into a plushie and also lucky enough to enlist a girl in helping him regain his fully human status. And Kisaragi-sensei's the Friagne lookalike. Still has that Itou Noiji feel.

/me thanks Sushi-Y for that past post

Are you really 10 years old?

Wow.. a 10 year old posting in a hentai/ero game thread.. :D But I'm really suprised. I was pretty retarded when I was 10, I probably wouldn't know how to use the internet properly, post on a message board.. let alone have a sig and avatar.

put it this way...when teaservant1996 puts himself in the shoes of the protagonist, he is not having sex with underage girls, he is having sex with older women. I've got to hand it to the kid, he is the man. :D

But he did say he doesn't play them...

...yet.

At least he knows where his avatars came from :p

edit: teaservant is female... oh my...

edit2: isn't it a rule for many internet forums to be at least 13 years of age due to risk of meeting strange people online?

Sushi-Y, about Narcissu side 2nd...wow just wow...did they hire an artist to do the CGs now? Though it looks lovely, how does this bode for their 'minimalism'?

I've actually played both those games! >w<

I'm only in Chapter 1 of Nanatsuiro Drops (got sidelined by Eien no Aselia + school requirements) but I do agree with everything you say. I'm dying of the whole cuteness that Sumomo practically radiates with everything that she does and says. Her vulnerability is like that of Anzu's from Peace@Pieces (not that I've played that game yet). Seeing Yuki-kun trying to put up with Sumomo, and the crazy things that happens afterwards, is awesome.

That and Sumomo is a touching character for me. She's just so moe.

I've also played School Project, but I haven't gotten that deep into it. I liked the animated scenes though! Rofl.

...Now I'm tempted even more to pick up Peace@Pieces. T_T

Sushi-Y, about Narcissu side 2nd...wow just wow...did they hire an artist to do the CGs now? Though it looks lovely, how does this bode for their 'minimalism'?Apparently, yes. (http://forums.haeleth.net/viewtopic.php?t=615&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=narcissu&start=247)

EDIT: Well, it took an hour and a half to read through the unvoiced version and I now feel completely terrible. I could rant about how the art was great whether he was aiming for minimalism or not, the music was stunning and the story was one of the most beautifully tragic things I've ever read, but I won't. Not now. If you've never read it, do so. Just be sure to allocate a bit of recovery time afterwards.
