I don't see that listed on the VNDB and they're usually pretty thorough...

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.

Also, I don't have to bitch about Sekai Project butchering it since it was all-ages to begin with...

Why would Sekai butcher it? They're the reason that there's ONE completely uncensored version of School Days.

It seems that you're correct, they did the localization for that.  It was published by JAST, though, which is why I didn't associate it with Sekai Project.

But all of Sekai Project's self-published stuff (and that seems to be mostly how they're doing things these days) has be released solely through Steam.  And I'm pretty sure adult content isn't allowed on Steam, so...

Admittedly most of what they've done was all-ages to begin with.  But they recently announced that they're doing an all-ages version of Grisaia no Kajitsu, which definitely was not all-ages.  We'll have to wait and see how that actually turns out but having played that game let's just say that I'm skeptical...seems like you would have to cut a lot.

You know, I was going to make a post about this last night but then I realized I didn't have much to say.  But nobody else has posted on it, so...

Clannad is being localized!!!

Come on, this is a huge deal.  It's a true classic VN, and there aren't exactly a lot of official localizations of Key games out there (actually, is this the first?).

Also, I don't have to bitch about Sekai Project butchering it since it was all-ages to begin with...

Graces was similar in its pretty limited World Travel as well, but at least the view changed periodically.

In Graces much of the 'overworld' was little more than highways between towns and dungeons.  But that was OK, because the dungeons themselves were great.  Those were the real meat of the game.  In fact in a way I kind of appreciated the simplified overworld because it did save time.  I don't actually find wandering around empty fields to be all that engaging (which is part of the reason I'm not crazy about open world games...), I want to get to the good stuff (like dungeons and plot) as quickly as possible.

Xillia had this weird approach where they tried to make the overworld a little more open but lacked either the technology or the resources to truly commit to it and ended up with something that can only be described as half-assed.  It's bigger than Graces, but it's boring, empty, and still pretty limited in where you can go.  On top of that the dungeons were terrible.  I haven't played Xillia 2 yet so I can't comment there, but the first one had some of the smallest, blandest, insubstantial dungeons I've ever seen in a Tales game.

PS: I liked Graces a lot more than Xillia if you haven't figured out by now ;)

Oh man, I used to read Sluggy Freelance.  That takes me back.  There was a time when it basically made sense to me, but even as a regular reader I completely lost touch with it.  Eventually just gave up.

A lot of webcomics struggle with the transition from pure episodic comedy to actual storylines.  I feel like Sluggy Freelance is a perfect example.

I saw the OVAs of Hellsing and The Prince of Tennis on a theatre years ago, and it was certainly the best experience instead being stuck in a room alone with some shitty headphones.

Get some good headphones.  It makes all the difference ;)

BTW, I hate to be inflammatory (OK, that's a lie), but am I the only one who kind of hated Aegis?  I don't feel like her character had any depth in the first place.

You could have said the exact same thing at the start of the PS3's life cycle, but that turned out OK.

But if there's nothing you want on PS4 right now then don't buy one.  Save some money.  Is that a bad thing?

Even though I'm "done" with the event I'm still hunting Kiyoshimo.  She just won't drop...

71 runs on E-6.  Only 20 of which actually made it past the hime at node H.  But 6 of those went off course to node I and didn't encounter the boss (despite an effective LoS--the 2-5 formula--of 123).  Of the 14 that did, in 1 of them my fleet did no damage to the boss at all.  In 9 of them the boss was damaged but not killed.  And there were 4 actual kills.  Now finally I'm within one kill of clearing the map.

...which means things are going to get even harder from here on...

I'm probably going to need a support expedition at the very least, but my boss encounter rate is so low that just feels really wasteful.  I know that most of those expeditions are going to return home without doing anything, and support fleets aren't cheap.  Plus there's the opportunity cost of not sending them on normal expeditions.  I've also been trying to optimize my fleet's firepower, but it depends on high-risk high reward ships like CLTs so I have to hope they actually make it through the gauntlet intact if they're actually going to accomplish anything.

It's just a lot of praying to the RNG from here on out.

Why do people think this is an action game?

Anyway, the beta is out for people who backed at a level that grants beta access.  Like me.

I might have more to say if I can actually get it working, 'cause I haven't had much luck with that yet...


OK, first impressions of the beta: Damn this game runs slow.

Really slow.

I mean, really, really slow.

Hopefully they fix that before the final version...

E-6 is suffering

Send help

Edit: seems appropriate:
74  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Kantai Collection on: August 16, 2014, 02:46:32 AM
24 runs on E-6 so far.  13 got stopped by ships going red, 2 randomly went off course before the boss (seriously, they had the same LoS as the ones that made it, doesn't make any sense), and 9 actually made it to the boss.  But of those only 3 were clean kills while the other 6 just did damage, though typically in the ~200-300 range.

Compared to some results I've seen I think I'm doing well, but it's still pretty frustrating.  Just chip, chip, chipping away.  The final kill is going to be tough, though.

I have to admit that I don't understand the Playstation TV at all. It was designed for the PS4 but it uses a Dualshock 3?

Well, it really wasn't designed for the PS4 originally.  It's just a non-portable version of the Vita and the Vita can already do PS4 remote play so they decided to emphasize that.  Still, I don't get why they didn't bundle it with a DS4 either...but I think they still work with it.

It will work with Playstation Now, but what about digital versions of PS3 games?

Not a chance.  Totally different hardware and it simply isn't powerful enough.  It's a Vita, not a PS3.

It plays most Vita titles, but what about Vita-compatible PS1/PSP titles?

Those should all work.  They don't have the touch screen design issues that actual Vita titles can.
