    General Visual Novels Thread

    Since just about everyone here has played at least one or two visual novels, I think it's a good idea to make a thread for the medium itself. Sure, there are pitifully few people who read VNs, but it's nice anyway.

    So, discuss visual novels, pimp out visual novels you like (or hate, if you so desire), and spread the love.
























    ...please? ;_;

    Aiyoku no Eustia.



    Amazing visual novel- I've only read the web trial, and I'm already in love- both with its protagonist and its characters.

    Steins;Gate
    Sumaga (replaying it 'cause it's awesome)
    Sekai de Ichiban NG na Koi
    Sakura Sakura
    Tapestry
    Shojokyuu (what, nothing wrong with nukige!)

    G-Senjou's main storyline was beast, but the rest is really lackluster.
    Currently reading Yume Miru Kusuri, really liking it. Nekoko-Chan!~

    Himawari. It's a doujin game that's regarded on the same level as 07th/Tsukihime.

    Also, Little Busters. Masato is one of the coolest characters I've ever seen. KINNIKU KAKUMEI DAAAAAA~

    So....I hear this Tsukihime thing's pretty good.

    Seriously though? I really liked Demonbane because of the narmy, carefree awesomness. Plus the giant robots are awesome, and the cast is a load of fun.

    It's what got me into Visual Novels, curiously enough. So yeah, it ranks pretty high on my nostalgia-o-meter.
    McJon01: We all know that the real reason Archer would lose to Rider is because the events of his own Holy Grail War left him with a particular weakness toward "older sister" types.
    My Fanfics. Read 'em. Or not.

    Mahoyo wait, you said release date.

    Has Aiyoku no Eustia's full version been released yet? UTW's Raze wrote a review on it, but I can't remember whether he talked about the entire thing. I think he did... Anyway, definitely worth reading- only read an hour of the trial, and I'm already in love with it.

    For some reason I can't think of anything right now. Rance Quest? SoniComi? Oh, I think I remembered a name but forgot it when I went to type it out. Damn.

    No. It's being done by Yandere Translations. Though TakaJun isn't the one translating but TLC? Can't remember the full team.

    *checks team* Holy shit Zen used to be translating this? He's my favorite green guy!

    According to the Yandere TL website, it is still under translation. I haven't heard of this before, so it's definitely got my attention.

    As for big things: Katawa. Shoujo. Full stop. It's going to be out in full this year, believed to be in November.

    On the subject of OELVN projects, I can't pimp Cradle Song enough. Seriously, it's not out yet, but the trial is, and it looks great and fantabulous.

    On the subject of translated Japanese visual novels, I am still slogging through ef - a fairy tale of the two. My god it's long, but it has very nice art by the lovely Makoto Shinkai. THere are CGs like every couple lines, it's insane, and awesome. Great characters, too. Kyousuke is a boss.

    Dusk is also being done too iirc it's by the same guy who did Dandelion Girl.

    And I remember some OELVN posted on the old forum. I remember either tobias or Eddyak played it and really liked it. What was it called, Digital? Can't remember.
