    I would continue this to Bern's amusement, but I think I may be lacking the intelligence and wit of Byakuya to do this thing justice

    I see your points, but I still kinda disagree. Good job with this Makoto thing, though!

    Are you insane? Have you even played that piece of junk? You can't have - otherwise you would never use "Dirge of Cerberus" and "enjoyable" in a single sentence. Love for fans? Don't make me laugh.



    While the actual merits of the fanservice and... enjoyability of the gameplay can be debated, there is no way this game was made by people who understood what made Final Fantasy VII great, or even how its mythos works. The plot is nonsensical and overrides everything the heroes of FFVII accomplished. The nonesensical, completely unscientific faith Hojo and Lucrecia place in Omega is just asinine and everything that happens in the game - from the forced, 5-secon cameos from characters that were actually popular, to the sense that Deepground fails to make by any stretch of the word - feels like it was churned out by an incompetent monkey at best, let alone anyone with any "love for the fans", as you mentioned.



    Let's see you break through that. I dare you to find one, logical proof, that Dirge of Cerberus, was made with love.



    (also, Bern is kinda right )

    Your ignorance goes even deeper than I could ever have anticipated, Makoto. You overlook even the most blatant of evidence against your cause, despite the fact that it's right under your nose.

    ATB can offer a fun distraction for those taking a boring commute to work or school. It's a brainless distraction, but it never tries to be anything else, nor invest you in any substantial manner. DoC? That travesty of a game takes long hours attempting to get you invested, baiting you with subtle nods to the original popular product, feeding off our nostalgia, only to feed you the vilest of bile. Dirge of Cerberus is undeniably the worst game of the two simply for the reach it had. At least All The Bravest was nipped in the bud by word of mouth.



    You should just give up before you humiliate yourself any further.

    So I'm following a walkthrough for IMHHW, right? But the order it has it in, my two favourite would be next and my least favourite would be last. I'm wondering if I should rearrange it. Like, my second favourite next, then my two least favourite, then my favourite last?

    WHAT TO DO

    And what do you have to substantiate that claim? Hm? The pointless clicking, the money leeching? ATB was fated to be a failure from the start. It had no story, just pure, shameless fanservice. Something that raised no expectations to begin with can't be considered "the worst". It's just nothing more than a shameful stain on the company.



    Dirge of Cerberus on the other hand? A haphazzardly constructed story that makes zero sense within the context of an established universe. Mountains of lore that is completely unfitting with what we know of Final Fantasy VII, an idiot scientist who bases all her data on an in-universe fairy tale, a nineteen year old in a 10-year-old's body, color-themed antagonists, not to mention the horrible game system that made Vincent seem cripled, and that damn graphical style that made me want to throw up because it was giving me migraines. And let's not forget Gackt.


    Dirge of Cerberus promised to be a sequel to one of the most iconic games of our generation, on one of the most popular systems of all time. And it failed spectacularly. As opposed to a mobile game that many fans of the series overlook due to the medium, and which are very often exploitative money sinks. And that is undeniable proof that DoC is the worse pile of trout of the two.

    I think we'll be looking at something more Danganronpa than Zero Escape, if you know what I mean

    Still, I'm definitely not complaining about the character diversity! It's great to finally have some personality to go with the portraits!

    Btw, great work on that first RP entry! You have quite a pleasant writing style I'm guessing that's from all the reading you do!

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 12:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.


Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of cliché, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 08:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.

SubaHibi set for late August release

by Karifean on 07-04-2017 at 01:03 PM
https://twitter.com/frontwingint/sta...91370361507840

So this probably won't be relevant for most people here since non-PG and all, but SubaHibi, one of the most hyped visual novels in recent memory, is set to be released in English in late August.


The method of release is kind of strange, ngl. Apparently they offer the first chapter of the game in all ages on Steam for 30 bucks and then provide

Little Busters is on Steam Greenlight

by Karifean on 04-30-2017 at 12:25 AM
As of just now, Little Busters! English Edition is on Steam Greenlight. While the release date is a vague "2017" it's pretty cool to see *something* happening nonetheless.

Higurashi Ch. 5 Meakashi released on Steam

by Karifean on 04-29-2017 at 12:36 AM
So for anyone following this series, or interested in following it, Higurashi Chapter 5 - also known as Meakashi - was just released on Steam. I felt like announcing this here because it's my favorite arc in Higurashi and one where I feel Ryukishi's talent in writing characters really comes out for the very first time.



You can find it here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/57...Ch_5_Meakashi/
