Well, there have been rumors that they're going to do the Heaven's Feel route but as far as I know Ufotable hasn't officially confirmed anything.  It would make sense, though.  I mean, there are only three main routes in the game and the original anime covered the first, the Unlimited Blade Works movie covered the second, so there's only one left.

On the other hand, the original anime wasn't actually very good so they might want to make something to replace it.  But consider that Fate/Zero introduced a lot of stuff that really only matters in the Heaven's Feel route (like the whole deal with Sakura which you learn nothing about in the original anime's route), I can't imagine they're not going to touch on it at all.  So I'm guessing they're either going to do Heaven's Feel or they're going to try to combine elements from different routes into a newish storyline.

looks like Heaven's Feel  cause pausing  2:21 in trailer shows Shirou  with those arm wraps and that only happens Heaven's Feel route.

FMP? FUMOFFU!: The Sousuke/Kaname comedy hour. Pretty much the highlight of the series right here and vastly superior to FMP S1.
I'm not sure how far into Fumoffu! you are, but look forward to the episode with the rugby team.  Sports is my favorite genre of anime and manga, and that episode had EVERYTHING I WANTED in a wacky anime sports story. 

I oddly agree with this.

Anyways, I zipped through Fate/Zero since we got it on Netflix.

Reaaalllly love the lore and the animation --- UFOtable *killed* the look of the series, details were everywhere.  I don't really care for how they draw people (it's kind of generic), but the colours and effects are perfect for a series of its esteem[?].

It suffers some of the usual anime gibberish, some silly platitudes, all-but-subtle characters, and everyone cries at some point, but overall I really, really liked it --- and I rarely bite into anime anymore these days.  So I will definitely look forward to the new anime out this year for it (apparently based off "Heaven's Feel", a popular arc).  I had to do some reading on the characters, not everything feels *too* explained.  But I do love that they did a 40 minute introduction episode nonetheless.
Fate Zero is actually the  prequel to Fate Stay Night. It is also written by Gen Urobuchi (Modaka Magica) . UFO table really did a great job on the series, and kept it faithful to the light novels.

The following pieces are from G-Senjou no Maou. This VN's soundtrack is almost entirely consists of arranges of classical music. I really like the highly moody pieces, here are some of them
G-Senjou no Maou - Fushoku
G-Senjou no Maou - Rakujitsu
G-Senjou no Maou - Yuki #1

The last 3 are are more upbeat but still moody
G-Senjou no Maou - The Devil
Asai Gonzou
G-Senjou no Maou - Nigeba Nashi

There are really only two categories for VNs. Those that have porn, and ones that don't. Anything that doesn't get tossed into the all general ages bracket. I don't necessarily agree with it as some of these VNs deal with content that is definitely not "all ages" material. VNs get such a negative stigma for porn that the All Ages rating is flat out telling you there is none in it.

per Andrew's own explanation in the article, I'd say there are three categories.

1) nukige -- sex is front and center. It's the point of the game. It's the gaming equivalent of porn.
2) eroge -- sex happens. It can be seen as a "reward" of some kind, or just something that happens. It's the gaming equivalent of a Hollywood movie with a racy sex scene that includes nudity.
3) "all-ages" -- no nudity. Caveats noted elsewhere in the thread apply. :)

Nukige is just a subgene within Eroge though, just the most common thing that gets incensed and sold in the west cause it sells the best.

Frankly I find the idea that the editorial would use If My Heart Had Wings as an example of 'good' censorship completely ludicrous.  That game is absolutely censorship at its worst.  It's nothing like Mugen Souls where the cut content had little effect on the core game.  One of the character routes had to be re-written basically from scratch since the original story revolved around starting as sex friends and slowly transitioning into an actual relationship.  On top of that there are the total excesses pointed out by TiamatNM.  They really did edit things like kissing.  I mean, WTF?  Why?  It's estimated that about 50% of the CGs in the game were either cut or edited in some way.  Seriously, 50%. 

If MoeNovel wanted to release a 'clean' VN they really should have picked a different title to work with...

The editorial's defense of If My Heart Had Wings seems to be entirely based on pointed out that there are douchebags out there giving low metacritic scores to a game they haven't played.  Which might be true, but two wrongs do not make a right.  That in no way invalidates the legitimate criticisms that have been made about the game.  And the editorial doesn't even address these criticisms.  In fact it mostly just talks about games that didn't have ero content to start with...which doesn't have anything to do with censorship.  Being anti-censorship is not the same thing as advocating that all games have to have ero content.
It was so bad fans have started restore patch project to try and fix the damage.
