Why are you guys being prudes about Summer Lesson? I don't get it. ┐( ̄ヮ ̄)┌

'Cause it looks like it's 100% a waifu simulator and nothing else.

A game really needs something more than character designs to hook me.  I was psyched for the new Senran Kagura from the same conference, but Senran Kagura is a fun game that doesn't take itself seriously.

There's no joke with Summer Lesson, and there doesn't appear to be much in the way of gameplay either.  The whole game seems to be, "here's a pretty female high school student for you to interact with".  You don't understand why people would find that kind of creepy?

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or what, but that Summer Lesson thing just looked friggin creepy to me...

Anyway, some general impressions:
  • Lot's of titles for both PS4 & PSV, which is pretty neat.
  • PSV seems alive and well in Japan, even if Sony has abandoned it everywhere else.
  • Why did Ubisoft get so much time at a Japanese conference...
  • Speaking of too much time, Sega's Yakuza guy talks way too much.
  • New God Eater 2.  Why does literally every single one of these hunting type games seem to get a semi-sequel at some point?  Anyway, this one is for Vita and PS4 (PSP finally abandoned), so maybe, maybe they could actually localized this version...nah
  • Persona 5 looks Persona-y.  That's not a bad thing.
  • I am very excited for new Ys.
  • I am also very excited for new Senran Kagura.  Don't judge me.
  • I am not excited for another Disgaea.  I'm totally burnt-out on that series.
  • A TOUHOU GAME FOR PS...er, no, it's just ports of fan-made spin-off games.  Because Zun would never let his precious Touhou be put on a major system like that.  Then it might actually be accessible to people...
  • Oh, and Deemo is pretty neat...er, not sure why you would wait for it on Vita.  It's all touch-based anyway.

I watched a bit of the Sony conference.  I thought Deemo for Vita looked kind of neat.

Then I realized it was a port of a mobile game.

Then I downloaded the mobile game.

Then I started to play the mobile game.

I'm not sure that's what they were going for...

Jeez, PAX isn't even over yet and they're already doing TGS announcements?  Too many events!

Finally got Musashi from LSC!

I think I've 'won' the game now.  I have every single kanmusu.

Needs more box canyons.

It's an arms war.  I'm not saying that the police always behave appropriately (I mean, they clearly don't), but at the same time they're not exactly wrong to be paranoid.  Police officers are killed in the line of duty all the time.  When everyone has guns it simply doesn't take much to kill somebody and the only 'protection' is to shoot first.  Which inevitably means that sometimes you're shooting people who haven't actually done anything...then the NRA types claim the solution is even more guns.

Of course that doesn't excuse the racial profiling issue.  The fact is you're much more likely to be shot if you're black.

PAX starts tomorrow and I don't have tickets :(

I actually bought Yumina the Ethereal but I gave up on it because the dungeon-crawling gets really tedious.  Boring, bland, random dungeons with the same old enemies everywhere you go that don't even make full use of the combat system (there are several skills are only useful for boss fights).  And if you think the fights drag out too long now, imagine repeating the exact same fight against the exact same enemies 50 times in a row.  I don't believe that the demo even showed off that part of the game...

Seriously, I actually liked some aspects of the combat system.  If they had used it more sparingly (like just limited it to boss fights or something) I think I could have enjoyed the game.  But the dungeons suck.

E-6 summarized in one gif:

Anyway, event ends tomorrow.  My farming has been fairly successful.  Got Kiyoshimo finally, another Taigei (going to leave her as a submarine tender), a couple Mikumas (good for 20cm no. 3 cannons) and three Akitsumarus (unique planes good for ASW).  But not a trace of Amatsukaze despite many attempts.  I got her in the Spring event, of course, but I was hoping to farm some more of those experimental boilers.

And my ship girls have gained a ton of experience during this event.  Feel like I'm leaving it much stronger than when I started.

Maybe I'll give 5-5 a shot...

Am I the only one seeing a significant problem here or am I insane/the only sane one?

I think you might be the only one actually paying attention to all this crap.  I know I sure haven't ;)

Speaking of flipping through the wiki, I can't find anything within it or the review here that explains what this story's 'hook' might be. Is it really just a generic dating sim/school life concept? I see the bones. Someone kindly explain to me what the meat is.

Aeolus's condescending dismissal of an entire medium aside, the biggest difference between a 'good' and 'bad' VN is in the quality of the writing.  They are, after all, novels first and foremost.

Clannad really doesn't do anything revolutionary.  Well, the After Story part is definitely a departure from the norm.  Unlike your typical bishoujo game (BTW, Clannad is not a dating sim because it doesn't have any sim aspects), hooking up with a girl is only half the story.  But otherwise it's pretty standard stuff.  It's just well-written and a real tear-jerker.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm way happier about Amazon buying them than Google.  Amazon has pulled a lot less of the kind of BS that Google has.  Your joke about Prime falls flat since you've never actually needed Prime for anything on Amazon.  It's just that having it gives you bonus shit (and pretty good bonus shit, I might add).
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Clannad on: August 25, 2014, 01:03:33 AM
I don't see that listed on the VNDB and they're usually pretty thorough...
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Clannad on: August 25, 2014, 12:49:49 AM
Clannad could probably sell without Steam but I'm pretty sure most people are fine with the all age version. It's kind of like Utawarerumono where the erotic content feels tacked on and the game didn't need it anyway to be great.

Wait, there is no 18+ version of Clannad in the first place.  It was always all-ages.  That was supposed to be the point of my tiny text ;)

But I feel like we've digressed enough.  Clannad is a great story and people should get it.
