  1. Question

    Okay.

    Once again, I apologize for lashing out and bashing eoffers for not doing more. It was very very wrong of me, and I honestly do feel really awful about it. My brain wasn't functioning properly from lack of sleep, being ill, and some other things going on. It's not an excuse and it doesn't make it okay, but all I can say is I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. And I hope y'all can forgive me, but I understand if not. Lesson learned: no more crowd funding attempts. ...

  2. Umineko Ramblings - Solvability Per Episode

    by , 10-05-2015 at 02:15 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    It's the Rokkenjima Incident's anniversary today, so I felt like making some sort of post about Umineko at least. So this is what I came up with. Time to enjoy being extremely vague! At least I believe I did well to avoid notable spoilers in this post.

    Umineko no Naku Koro ni is a mystery story. A story with truths hidden beneath its surface which it wants its readers to figure out on their own. But how likely is it really that the attentive reader will actually figure out everything ...
  3. Evacuate?

    Hurricane, might have to evacuate, blah blah blah.

    I must say I'm a bit disappointed and sad that more people didn't help us with my cat. I really appreciate everything everyone has done with sharing and the few who donated. I actually stayed in tears in and off for awhile over just that little bit.

    But, I guess I don't have as many friends as I kind of thought I did (let's not kid ourselves, we know the majority of y'all hate me anyway). & yes, I do understand ...

    A few of you know I started doing video reviews of late, and while I got a new camera I'm running into a boat load of problems with it, among other things. Here's a quick video explaining my situation:

  5. Rose Guns Days First Impressions

    by , 09-26-2015 at 03:32 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    What do you call it when the writer of Higurashi and Umineko decides to go write a Baccano! slash Cowboy Bebop esque story?

    smurfing glorious that's what.



    No seriously, this has to be one of the best prospects for a story I've ever heard. Rose Gun(s) Days is sometimes called Ryukishi07's most accessible work, and well, I wouldn't be surprised. It's set - for the most part - in post-war Japan, 1947 to be exact. But before I go into the story further, ...

    The kickstarter for the Muv-Luv localization just went live!

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...l-novel-series

    Muv-Luv is the best-rated visual novel series on VNDB, and it's not conceited to say that it is probably the most loved and universally appreciated Visual Novel series in the English-speaking realm of visual novel fans.

    If you want to support the localization of such a legacy and the industry as a whole, or you ...

    by , 09-22-2015 at 11:46 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I somehow forgot to post this way back when it was first made.

    Some time ago, the Visual Novels Subreddit had an extensive poll to rate visual novels of many different genres by their newbie-friendliness, the end result of which is this huge image. They're sorted by newbie-friendliness from left to right, and you can also see ratings for overall/visuals/music/story to make your choice easier, plus there are icons to indicate 18+ games, 18+ ...
  9. Various Announcements and Releases

    by , 09-20-2015 at 01:15 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So I was gone for two weeks, off in Italy working on stone walls. Twas pretty fun, but there was no (consistently usable) internet to speak of so now I have to catch up on what happened these two weeks. And there certainly are things to share.

    fault milestone two side:above has been released
    You can find it on Steam for I think 15 bucks. It seems milestone two was split into two halves, and although the creators said they worked with that in mind I've already seen complaints about ...
