Type-Moon is leaving money on the table for not porting Fate/Stay Night to modern hardware. All their PC versions are expensive as fuck and console version dates back to PSV in 2014.

Or maybe they have earned way too much money from FGO already so they do not care.
I am assuming any VN made after Purely x Cation whenever that was released. Since both Purely x Cation and Niizuma Lovely x Cation has them.
I see. Pretty x Cation burns me out for its complete lack of story. I know the game is meant to be ecchi, but without some sort of story makes me hard to continue playing for long session. I just completed one route (not even bother reading the DLCs) and left the copy inside my closet for good. Maybe one day I will dig it out again to play another route.

Is this times x 10000 T-M could do a lot of things starting with Tsukihime remake, a proper anime adaptation, etc. but nothing will come because Nasu is swimming in all the money.

Just started playing the english release of both Steins;Gate Elite and Linear Bounded Phenogram for the website I write for, and as there are no embargo dates for either of them, I’m free to answer any questions you guys might have about these games.

How's the quality of LBP translation?
(I'd lol so hard if they'd just reuse zakobot's 'translations')

It’s not out till mid-February, right?

So I guess let us know before it’d ship if it’s worth getting them just for LBP, hah.
Alright, will do. Finished the first story (out of ten) and it was really good. PQube should’ve localized and published this one right after Steins;Gate back in 2015.

To my surprise, Sorceress Alive is receiving really positive impressions from early adopters. Did not expect this may become the top VN of Jan (other than Sakura, Moyu, which is not released yet).

replaying C;C on Steam really put me in the mood for more murder mystery stuff, I think I might pull the trigger on Kara no Shojo when i'm done (again) with C;C.

Stein's Gate is one of my favorite things so this is good to hear. I really miss these characters.

So, about Doki Doki:

Monika has some pretty interesting things to say, it's worth reading all of it. I just minimize the window to do other stuff and then open it when I can to read the new lines since there's a long wait between them. But anyway, I recommend reading all of it.

Get ready to frantically get a preorder in some Friday morning, I guess.

...I’ll probably buy it on both, maybe? Which feels like a waste, but. I’m all in.

Are there any opinions on the web about Robotics;Noted DasH or is someone playing it (if someone knows Japanese)? Unfortunately because of the absence of localization of Robotics;Notes, I doubt they will localize this, unles they decide to translate both games (but I don't know if for them the cost would be compensated).

Steiner tweeted that DaSH requires extensive knowledge of all main SciADV games, so unless someone brings C;H and R;N over, I don't see DaSH localization happening.

Just saw Punchline for 10€ and bought it. What am I getting myself into ?

I still have Chaos Child and 428 to play though ._.

It's clear that also a localization of R;N (Elite) would be needed since DaSH is basically a sequel, but is also really C;H knowledge required? Or are there just normal references to C;H like in other SciADV visual novels?

I mean, Elite’s being ported so it’s no longer impossible to localize it; I still expect that and then DaSH will be the next things we get (or at least I want to remain hopeful that things don’t end here).

Chaos;Head feels... unlikely, still.

Huh, I wasn't aware there was a VN community thread. Glad I stumbled across it since I fell pretty deep into a VN hole over the last year or so.

Hopefully somebody here can help me out, I've been chipping away at Muv Luv Alternative for a few months now and I'm wondering how far I even am.
I'm just about to go on the practical assesment for Sumika.

Just finished Ayase route of Riddle Joker. Ayase is a great partner in a relationship. Story is average with quite a few loopholes. Tbh, being the main heroine, I expected better story from her route. Nonetheless, character is still the most important aspect from a Yuzusoft title, and I think they deliver this aspect well enough. I will put more thoughts into this route, as well as completing the remaining three routes before writing a complete impressions. So far I enjoy the game.

What would folks recommend if I dug Death Mark and am averse to fanservice? It doesn’t have to be fanservice free, just not a strong dose.
