Hey, folks! Back for our (almost) one year anniversary! This month we talk about piracy in the visual novel community and how it has affected the medium to date.
Hey folks! We’re really, really late this time. Sorry about that, the holidays and real life commitments and my loud breathing making this episode a pain to edit caused some delays here. We’re back (at last) to talk about my personal favorite topic–Adult Content in Visual Novels. To make up for being so late, we have a half of an extra episode this time. Our guest this month is redditor Zonijo. May god have mercy on our souls.
VNDB Link: Chaos;Child
Developer: 5pb. Games
Platform: PS4, PS Vita, PC(?)
Recently I finished Chaos;Child and felt I should write up some of my thoughts for the blog… I’m a long time detractor of Chaos;Head and generally hold the opinion that Steins;Gate is a fluke and the only thing worth reading in the Science Adventure series. I am very pleased to admit that as of now, I have been proven wrong. Chaos;Child is absolutely worth reading.
We’re back again to talk about tropes and cliches in visual novels with our guest, rvnester.
We missed a month there with hectic schedules all around but episode seven is finally ready. This time, we talked about popular visual novels and what makes them popular with our guest, Cornetto Man.
Our apologies for being a little late this month but the next episode is here at last! This month we try not having a guest to see how the format works with just us three. The topic is the effect of Kickstarter on the visual novel industry!
This month our topic is all about translation quality with our guest, John Hooper (also known as GundamAce) of Lemnisca! Regrettably, technical issues irrecoverably destroyed a great talk we had about honorifics, and we were unable to reconstruct it in time, so if you notice that we don’t talk about those, we’re sad about it too!
Platform: Nintendo DS, PC
Steam Page: The Nonary Games
Recently I managed to complete a long time item from my VN bucket list: 999. I had been meaning to read the VN and its sequel, Virtue’s Last Reward, for quite some time now but never quite got around to it as I don’t use my 3DS all that often. With the Steam release and a brief gap before Persona 5, I decided to finally sit down and give it a try and boy was it worth it.
This month our topic is visual novels with gameplay with our guest, InvertMouse, developer of the Unhack series and the upcoming visual novel, “The Last Birdling.”
