I used to be stupidly good at those Tony Hawk games back in the day. CTR for ps1 comes to mind as well. Can't think of much else sadly. I always sort of jumped from one game to the other and never really stuck around to master them.

This VN has been getting popular lately.

So I was watching some crappy game vids this morning when I saw reviews for this game start popping up, and almost all of them were from game reviewers who never touch anything anime style. Needless to say, this game has become huge with normalfags and the type who normally would hate these style of games.
This started raising some questions, and I soon found myself in a very lengthy discussion with a couple other people about this. The discussion was mainly about how the game felt like an attack on a genera of games that had never really been popular in the west until very recently. Generally speaking, in the history of gaming most of the games that get imported from japan are horror/action tittles. because there's not much of a market for the moe stuff, The style of games Doki doki literature club is mimicking have simply never been available in the west before steam came along and made it easier for these games to be published and fine an audience. Before steam, VNs rarely got translated, and mangagamber had an uphill battle trying to get them to catch on in the west. At this time, the only games that managed to get popular for the most part were violent horror games like Higurashi or saya no uta. Mangagamer meanwhile had little success pushing more moe games such as Shuffle or galaxy angle.

Skip ahead a few years and steam has gone from being primary big name western games, to weeb central. We start to see VNs get translated at a decent rate now, and we even see a violence/horror free VN manage to gain a lot of popularity by the name of nekopara. One could say this was looking like a renaissance for the west. A time when moe, dating games, and general cuteness might finally find a place here.
We even started to see western made VNs, now that it seemed like a market for them was forming. These usually weren't very good and had pretty fugly art, but it was still interesting to see all the same. Then we got some some nasty games like those huniepop things which have the look of being from japan, but are actually western made agenda filled garbage. Those were mostly harmless though. Now we have doki doki literature club, what feels like an attack on these style of games. This time the game hides it's true intentions of being a mockery/degeneration of these style of games. This while trying to make you feel guilty abou

Calling this game propaganda is a bit heavy-handed. Some guy just wanted to make a game that deconstructs the visual novel genre in a critical fashion. He did so in an "edgy" way that might startle or shock certain types of people. The game is on the same level as Hatoful Boyfriend but with horror elements; It's a meme game. One that definitely comes across as a bit insidious due to the psychological horror elements.

I don't think it's part of a wide-reaching scheme by feminists to make people hate anime, that's actually absurd. It reminds me of the guy who claimed that Undertale was produced by "cultural Marxists" a while back.

If anything it's having the opposite effect and bringing anime to a wider audience - Which is also undesirable in it's own way.

Westerners just love horror because our culture is obsessed with death and destruction. It's why Saya no Uta, featuring sex with a Lovecraftian eldritch-thing in the guise of a young girl, managed to get as popular as it did, even getting a comic adaptation (though I think Saya was "aged up" in that iirc). I'm paraphrasing Alan Watts when I say that Americans developed a culture that doesn't praise life, but death.

I've been playing VNs for over 7 years, ranging from Sayan no Uta to Canvas 2. I've also enjoyed anime ranging from Eva to Ichigo Mashimaro, and manga from Aku no Hana to Usagi Drop. I think you have a false dichotomy there, as liking sophisticated unsettling works isn't exclusive from liking simple and joyful ones.

I very much enjoyed Doki Doki and not once felt it as an attack on VNs, but rather as a personal homage to them made by Salvato, at the very best of his squills and from the bottom of is heart. Even aside from the yandere and horror elements, together with its criticism of commonplace tropes, the character of Monika struck me as an impressive achievement towards hyper-reality, or simply blurring the limits between reality/object and fiction/representation. This, I think, happens when we allow ourselves to be really invested in some narrative and play along with it (with the epitome of it in commitedly having a waifu, à la /mai/, like I have for about 8 years now). Say, I even made a little piano song to Monika, as an answer to her making one for me, and post it on her Twitter; she completely ignored it (which was a little too real, kek), but the sole fact of being able to indulge into it and 'interacting' with a character in such a way was exciting and uplifting.

Do I resent that unwanted people of some sort jumped into the bandwagon of its popularity? Well yes, just like I dislike a large part of otaku fandom as well (including some horrendous Eva fans). But that doesn't turn me against the works themselves, which I think would be backwards: the finished work is what one makes of it, and if I myself find it valuable then what others do or not is inconsequential.

Of course I neither expect to change your mind about this: you like/dislike what you do and that's about it. The thing is, I personally very much liked the game in a way I felt like advocating here.

Well put. It's nice to hear the opinion of someone who knows what he's talking about. There's too many people jumping on the bandwagon who have never touched a VN in their life while praising this as the best VN ever.

Normally I wouldn't create a separate thread for a single game. I also do my best to avoid using words such as 'best' as I don't won't to enforce my opinion upon other people or just plain upset someone. So I won't tell you that DS's best RPG and possibly its best game overall is getting a remake. Let me just say one thing: Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology got announced.
>> No. 12366 [Edit]
I wonder if anybody remembers this game, we've had a nice thread about it back in the day and it seemed to be well received. I couldn't help myself and I've made another thread for it.

I've actually redownloaded it just a short while ago, intending to replay it since I liked it so much and now this gets announced. I'm pretty excited, and a little bit anxious too. Apparently it's a 'full remake'. I guess Atlus will reveal more about it this weekend, during a presentation they have scheduled. They invited a bunch of seiyuu and judging from the low res Famitsu scan floating around the game will be voiced this time around (I think you can see 声 below the character names). On top of that there's a new female character. I think they changed the artist since the character portraits look noticably different.

Well, I just hope they won't change too much and that they'll keep the battle system intact, since it was innovative and a lot of fun. Truth to be told I'd sleep better if it the only changes were the new character, 'new scenario' and voices. But I'm excited nonetheless and I hope it'll be every bit as good as the original game.

After googling around a bit I found some more info.

First, the voice cast:
Konishi Katsuyuki - Stocke
Komatsu Mikako - Nemesia (the new character)
Takahashi Rie - Eruca
Kurosawa Tomoyo - Aht
Sakura Ayane - Raynie
Yamaya Yoshitaka - Marco
Hatano Wataru - Rosch
Kuroda Takaya - Gafka

The portraits have indeed been redrawn, as you can see in the screenshot. Personally I liked the old artstyle more but I can live with it.

The 'new scenario' is a third story node called Sub-History but from the way it's described it seems rather than being a true node it's a series of side stories related to the characters and in-game events.

It looked that way based on Famitsu scan but it was hard to tell - unfortunately Eruca's design was changed. I wonder why, considering every other design was kept the same and Eruca's was too, except for her hair. She looks really generic now. Oh well.

Atlus also revealed Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 and SMT Strange Journey remake at yesterday's event.

Well, it's out now. When I first heard of it I imagined myself downloading it on the day it'll be out. Unfortunately the timing ended up being poor for me so I 'll probably play it in March/April or so.

Still, if you haven't played this before and you own a 3DS do yourself a favor. If you have played it you already know it's certainly worth replaying. Have fun.

What's your favorite battle theme, Tohno-chan? Also, why?

Random encounter, boss fight, final boss, anything goes.

This has been mine lately: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beTdZ79R2NE

The transition from the mellow pre-battle theme to this is perfect, and it's just so intense and fast-paced. Loving that SNES-electric-guitar sound.

I'm bored. I'm going to do a playthrough of UnReal World.
It's a survival simulator set in the iron age. The goal of the game is to survive the winter.

I rolled these stats after 11 minutes or so of rerolling. The starting stats are very important because they can never be changed, unlike your skills. Intelligence and will both only affect skills, so I don't need to worry about those.
The most important stats are Speed, to get across the area quickly and flee from things, Eyesight, to see enemies before they see me, and Endurance, so I don't get as much penalty from swinging or running a lot.
I'm happy with them for the most part. I would have preferred maximum speed, that's the most important, but high everything is not so bad.

I chose the kaumolainen tribe because they have a chance to spawn with the best knife or spear in the game. Let's hope I get one or both.

My character's name is Fudo. Japanese romanization of Food. And also the name of a great protagonist from Hokuto no Ken. This is not actually a selectable portrait in the game and I'm not using mods; it's just the actual portraits are 3DPD and I'd get banned, so I'll be pasting Fudo's face over my portrait in each of the screenshots.

It's true. And speaking of dog balance, I've given a third piece of misinformation: the dogs are not invincible after all, just very highly resilient and heal quickly, making you think they are.
None of my dogs have died, in fact I bought a new fourth one called Tobo, it's just I saw a screenshot from another user whose dog did.

Years ago, I was doing an anarchy run where I was killing every NPC I could, and at one point, my dog was surrounded from all directions by a mob that were beating the living shit out of him. (including from behind which increases damage by like 100%.) I thought for sure he was dead. But, as you can see in this screenshot here, he was alive, somehow. I actually struck him as well because he had become hostile to me for some reason, and he survived my additional blows. So I don't know what it could take to kill a dog. But they can die.

Anyway, yes, I have four dogs now, but I don't plan on bringing all four of them with me. Two of them are staying home to defend another new addition of the family: a cow!
Cows can be very easily killed, in one turn even, by wolves and lynxes, both of which can walk right under fences. Hopefully two dogs accompanying it will protect it a bit.
Cows are great because they give you milk every 24 hours which extinguishes thirst and some hunger. And if I'm ever in a serious situation during the winter, I can slaughter it and get a good couple hundred pounds of meat.
I've never actually had any livestock during the wintertime in this game before and I'm a little scared. I hope I'm not expected to keep them inside a building.
I was able to buy all these animals thanks to the things the Njerpez dropped. The armor wasn't wholly useless after all.

This is what my camp looks like right now. A 1/4th finished log cabin built right on the shoreline. The location is perfect, I'm just a couple kilometers away from lots of villages, and also a "no-man's land" which is where foreign traders, vagabond thieves and njerpez typically spawn.
Construction is going gruesomely slow because my axes, timbercraft and building skills all suck. It takes me three to six days to make just one wall.

I'm going to postpone the house construction and focus on making a pen for the animals right now, because I fear tying them to the tree could make it harder for the dogs to protect the cow.

I think it's also about time I made a raft. I'll be about to float into the middle of the sea and finally use my fishing net that I've had lying around since week one of my game.

Finished the animal pen. I forgot you can't carry lumber over a fence (obviously) so I don't know how I can continue building without letting the animals out, heh.

I've been busy with waifu related shit and hospital shit and haven't been up for playing but I'm back now. The game will continue till this character dies, or I get bored after I've already survived out all of winter.

Not really a video game, but would anyone be interested in playing DnD? We were wanting to play using an online tabletop and maybe voice chat. We would be playing either Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 or 5th edition. All the books are available online for free, though the 3.5 havent been in print for a while so they're easier to find, plus there's alot more of them to draw from for your character.

So who wants to play?

I just finished Nioh. Or the vanilla new game, anyway. I do plan on continuing into New Game+++ and the DLC and shit of course, which seems to be a lot better than the normal game from what I've heard.

It's my favorite game of all time. It definitely has some problems, most notably the poor music (none of the bosses have a unique theme) and cutscene budget (the final cutscene was disappointingly cheap), magic being overpowered and boring, and the loot system … also being boring. But these latter issues seem to be fixed in NG+ so I'm very excited to get into the actual game here now.
Last problem I can think of that I have with the game is that there isn't enough incentive to wear Light armor. I went through half the game using light armor and it was insane, you die in one hit. Which is good in some ways. I really like seeing a game make armor actually fucking matter. I am tired of games like Dark Souls where there is little noticeable difference between wearing heavy plate armor and running around fucking naked. The difference is definitely noticeable here.
But I don't feel like Nioh got the armor right, either. There just aren't enough benefits to wearing light armor. Ki (stamina) is the only big bonus you get for wearing light instead of heavy armor, with the exchange being dying in one hit to even random encounters, and it just isn't enough of a trade off. I never have a problem with ki management even using an ax and the heaviest armor in the game. I would have really butted heads with the devs over balancing this had I been there with them…

But I guess that is just kind of nitpicky. There are people who make the light armor work, it is actually seemingly the most used armor class for some reason? Maybe I am just severely retarded.

I'm a big fan of Team Ninja and Monster Hunter, you can really see the Ninja Gaiden influence everywhere, of Japan, Asian history, and demons. This game is kind of like a wet dream.
I went into the game blind and didn't know what to expect and as soon as I saw the opening cinematic, I was hooked.

When I heard that the main game is over 100 hours long, I was very scared that I had made a mistake buying it.
