Does Katawa Shoujo count? It handles it very tastefully, which is why I tolerated it.

Katawa Shoujo is more of a VN than an eroge.

I'd add Sengoku Rance because playing the game is actually fun (and not just for you nether region) and Castle Fantasia (renewal) because it's a pretty good game overall.

EDIT: and Utawarerumono

Tears to Tiara*
Murder Princess
Sacred Blacksmith
Scrapped Princess*
Tales of (Anime)
Legend of Legendary Heroes*
El Hazard*
Tower of Druaga
Rune Soldier
Twelve Kingdoms*

Out of that I'd say the good ones are:
- Utawarerumono (Good story, good action. serie + specials + 3 OVA)
- Claymore (manga only - although still ongoing)
- Legend of the Legendary heroes (Enjoyable but covers only a tiny spec of the story)
- Tower of Druaga (more of a silly show; it helps if you know about the Druaga games of the 1980s)
- Twelve Kingdoms (Watch the first ~25 something episodes. You'll know when you've reached the 'end'. The show after that is just an echo of how good it was at the beginning.)

But yes, the artwork was done by a guy who has also done an occasional hentai and is notorious for all of his characters having that plastic look to them.

Occasionaly? Hell, there's an erotic artbook for every Growlanser game.

-Inappropriate, over-sized blush
-H-face (basically O-face without quite going into O-face territory)
-Over-sized breasts
-Exposed thighs
-Glistening skin (it's a particular effect that I used to think was H-game character only as that's where it predominately crops up)
-Chainmail bikini syndrome
-Nipple eye-catch ornaments
-Crotch exposure (minorly so; but still present)
-Overt cleavage exposure
-Demure, un-assertive, if not outright submissive posing

Funniest thing is... you could be talking about a hundred games just with that.

Since we're talking about FFXII lately:

I'd like a job where I can actually do some good. Frankly, as long as I make the average wage I'd be ok... I'm not a big spender.
I feel that the only thing my work does right now is make the board of directors richer.

If politics weren't so corrupted... maybe I'd go try that.

Dream job: God

Do they still have those mail ordered wife?
I'd take one of those.
3097  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: How do you like your book chapters? (Thin, Thick, ect.) on: July 17, 2012, 12:32:19 AM

James Patterson-esque chapters piss me off because they are all about a page and a half long and completely unnecessary. While I don't like super-long chapters either, if my eyes get tired usually I just try and get to the end of the chapter before putting it down. This is because the end of a chapter is usually the end/start of whatever is happening or is being talked about. It's a good mental break and gives you a place to start fresh when you come back. Otherwise it's like entering into a conversation that's halfway done.

You can simply leave the rest of the page blank every time there is a change of scene and start on the next page. Easy enough to stop reading there and still part of the continuity.

Long, hard and black.

Okay, now for a real answer. I don't think you need chapters at all. It's dysfunctional to the flow in a sense.
3099  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: July 16, 2012, 04:57:23 PM
The only thing I actually liked about FFXII was the monster hunting. The rest was just pretty bad and grindy.

(The prior excludes Yazma. F you Yazma... you win the biggest damage sponge of all time award.)

One word of advice on the subject of getting everything in FFXII. DON'T.

Seriously. Its ridiculously easy to screw yourself over due to all the arbitrary bullshit the game pulls. The Zodiac Spear may be the most blatant act of easily missable loot but it's not the worst. During the game you'll come across an accessory called the Diamond Armlet that supposedly boosts the value of the treasure in a chest, but after a while it'll start doing the opposite, making it impossible to get the true reward in a chest. This is especially true in regards to rare, one-time only chests found in the penultimate dungeon. And then there's the loot that can be gotten during one-time only fights.

Here is a bit of perspective for the sake of anyone who didn't play it:

- In the Secret area of a dungeon resides the best summon and possibly the best gear in the game.
- The chests containing the best gear can only drop said gear upon their first opening (after that it's random crap)
- The odds of said chest to give you the item you want (and not something like... an elixir) is somewhere around 0.12%
- As Moonson said, the item to increase the odds of good items in chest makes the best items impossible to drop (and the game does not mention this anywhere)

Now, the chests themselves are usually quite far into the dungeon, which is pretty hard (as in can't rush there, gotta travel slowly killing monsters) and there are no save points at all. As such, loading and going back to the chest is about a 10-minute job.

FFXII really missed the mark with the ultimate gear.
Those % would be fine in an MMO if and only if the content could be attempted over and over; not a single-player game with only one attempt.

So I'm replaying Chrono Trigger for the Umpteenth time.
... and yet, I'm still having fun.

Just got the repaired Masamune and on my way to Magus.

fucking nuns

Yeah, I can see why you'd want to relive certain grades.

As I recall, School Days was famous also for utilizing somewhat animated FMV for the whole game instead of just still art or something.

Didn't people freak out when it came out because it was the biggest (as in HD install) VN ever made?
With some Googling, it seems the HD version (what just came out) needs 12GB of disk space.

EDIT: wait wah? SOUND: PCM audio ... the audios are WAVES!??! No wonder it's heavy.

School Days is mostly just famous for its numerous violent bad ends.  Otherwise it's pretty unremarkable.

Well, it's also one of the few H VN to actively punish you for being a total scumbag.
That's worth something on the moral scale I guess.

If you have no idea what the hell I'm talking about and you are under the legal age in your country, I suggest you don't Google this game.
School Days is very NSFW

Lets hope I'm not breaking any rule with this topic but hey!

School Days is out and in English!

This is pretty amazing considering it was a joint effort between Jast USA and Sekai Project which as a fan translation group translated the entire thing.
0verflow, the Japanese maker also gave their OK and support.

It's good to see that sometimes people can make good judgment call as such as supporting a fan project to localize games that most of the time had no hope of ever being localized (akin to those 2 Ys games with similar situations).

I wonder what the sales will be like.
3105  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect ME1&2 spoilers) on: July 12, 2012, 11:04:19 PM
When your next big RPG saga hits and 1/3 of the player base you had prior doesn't show up, you'll know why.

Considering their next title might be Dragon Age 3... erg...
