Oh god yes. I once read this so called epitome of VNs known as MuvLuv trilogy and thought that it was indeed the epitome of everything I think is wrong with the medium. The school setting with harem, broken girls (EVENTUALLY LIKE 10 OF THEM), tons of unending food convos, hero with "gamer" traits, that day to day narrative (from the point of view of an egotistic jerkbag with "gamer skills") and the plot twist which is actually the exact same as in like 10 other popular VNs.
Muv Luv: Extra the 1st part of the trilogy. It is a generic as they come romantic comedy that parodies Harem VN. Everything is as over the top as possible. It takes all the things you described and turns the dial up to 11. Most people do not like Extra,  and are told to slug through the  2 main heroine routes to unlock Unlimited which is the 2nd part. Unlimited is basically the world building for 3rd part of the trilogy, though by the end of Unlimited  if you don't like any of the characters you are most likely not  going to like Alternative  the final part. Just getting to Alternative, the well regarded part is A lot of time invested already.

Oh mein GOTT  Won't lie, I bought the game after I heard this (well, that and the hub-bub about the first game).  I saw a battle play out to this tune and decided to take a chance on it.  I love it.  A beautiful mix of techno synth and electric guitar, a catchy melody that never seemed to wear out.
Probably my favorite normal battle theme, and as dorky as this sounds it was the 1st song I learned to play by ear on the electric guitar.

Xenoblade any battle theme by Ace+ is gravy as well

Glad to know it's out now.  I enjoyed the demo so here's hoping the final product lives up to its promise. 
It really depends on how they handle episode 2 and 3. I think episode 1 does a good job of setting the groundwork for episode 2, but by itself part one is just a bit above average, nothing more. I still think its worth it at under $10, but I would not pay any more then that.

Is it weird that this one actually pisses me off?  I think it's because, back in days of yore (back in, holy crap, early 2000s), when Internet wasn't so good I remember getting locked out of servers a ton and just sitting and waiting with that song on.  I do (or did) like it, but it doesn't actually bring happy memories. xD

omg, the Tetris art says "From Russia with Fun"....

Get your last picks in, I'm gonna be changing to topic soon!!
lol, I think anyone who plays or played mmos can relate to that feeling Dice.  At some point whether it is  the game or your nets fault the end result is frustratingly staring at the log in screen.

Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle (WARNING! 18+ due to sexuality)
http://aeresland.net/ (Free + Get the DELUXE version)
I'm not really sure how to sell this one.
It's mostly comical but the plot is actually very deep.
You basically have to replay New Games + to keep uncovering more and more.
There is some sexual content (not really graphic)
I was going recommend this but bailed due to the sexual content. There really isn't anything quite like it.

Star Stealing Prince
Legion Saga series
Capella's Promise
Dhux's Scar
Edited: title error

I bought this game yesterday. The  game has some huge Suikoden influences which is a + in my book. I am liking it so far but the battles are really starting to drag with the mobs having so much hp.Unless the game has a new game + it is going to be really annoying on replays. Right now I am trying to play through 2 routes at the same time but that may soon stop. So far the differences between 2 characters after the prologue is minor,  just A couple lines of different dialogue here and  there with their take on  A situation. Kinda let down about the fact that it is so linear. I was hoping it was a little more  like A  WRPG in that you actually made decisions that mattered, and shaped  way the  protagonist developed. This gripe may change later as I am only in Chapter 3 at the moment. The art and music is great,and the story is interesting so far. I also like the way the characters and mobs are animated in battle. The game is definitely worth the 9.74 its is on sale for at the moment. Celestian Tales doesn't really live up to some of its more hyped up  Kickstarter claims (at least so far),  but  it is still  a very solid RPG. Anyone who wants a narrative void of many of the tropes that normally make you cringe while playing JRPGs should give this RPG a try.  A Suikoden fan should also give this game A try.

Most of the stuff I'll be throwing up will be from 2007 or earlier. Around that time is when I actively stopped hunting these bands down. So some of them may have  blew up (as much as niche metal does anyway)  or died.
