I stood strong against the temptation to update to the $150 CE box, I'm satisfied with the Physical VITA games  :applause:

I paid the extra $75 and upgraded to the $220 tier....That codex book is so large and nice looking that I can totally see myself actually reading it.

A have couple questions about the Muv Luv kickstarter. Is it a possible to get the PS vita physical CE with the digtial copies being on the pc? The way the survey is phrased, sounds like you get to only choose digital copies on VITA or android. ( i will be sending them the same question but i don't expect an answer until Monday if at all)

 

Are there any prototype dakimakura designs out there? I'm not sure what character to choose? Would like to know who is the best girl?

 

Edit:

Might have answered my own questions with some searching. Still would like some peoples input though.

So this is the value of the $150 set. Already twice the value of the $150 set if you were to get them separately.
 
Sumika figure: $60
Vita physical bundle: $80
Vita digital bundle: $60
PC digital bundle: $60
Codex digital: $10
Photon digital bundle: $30
No estimative for physical and digital OST and artbook.

They just wanted to know if you want a Vita Digital Copy or an Android Digital Copy (since that was a stretch goal and all $150 backers and over get all Digital Stretch Goals for free). The PC Digital Copy already comes with the $150 tier.

Says a person that argued all the time about wanting stuff censored.

Yes, if by "all the time" you mean that one, single instance in which the subject matter was blatant pedophilia that bled into actual gameplay mechanics and in which I stated I would be fine with the option to enable or disable the censorship, then sure!

So I already knew that Koei is refusing to localize the game due to backlash. The current discussion is about Play-Asia openly declaring plans to sell the game, and ridiculing of anyone upset with them?

That's pretty awesome.

Indeed.

Haha, I remember this now. Anime is for pedophiles who eat at Subway apparently.

http://gematsu.com/2...trophies-appear

 

Rather than direct translations of the Japanese trophies, the English trophies are localized text. For examples, trophies like “Do Songaloids Dream of Poseurs?” and “LOL, u fell 4 it.”
 

XSEED pls.

I'm not going to go any further into this than to say if by "anime" you mean stroking drawings of nude children in suggestive poses, then yes, it's for pedophiles.

What about rubbing the naked women who were in their late teens? Is it then a game for rapists and run of the mill sexual offenders? I'm pretty sure you could make a case for someone who loves CoD as being a mass murderer, too.

So I usually don't like adding to these discussions, and I'm probably just pouring fuel into the flame here. But there's an article about this on Kotaku (yeah I fell right into their click-baity trap, worst part is, I wasn't even looking for it, it was a sub article under the black friday deals thread for kinja) and the comments are just ridiculous. Someone wrote half a page on how low and scummy the game was, only to say in the last sentence that she doesn't care and would only roll her eyes to it. Half the comments are people saying how they don't give a shit about the game, yet write pages of negativity about how objectifying the game is. So... if they don't care... why in the hell are they putting so much attention into bashing it? It just blows my mind. Sorry, I'm not helping but I really needed to rant there.

After pledging for the Muv-Luv Kickstarter I have not heard or seen anything in my email or their site acknowledging it. It doesn't show I backed it, and I've never received any messages or updates, or anything from them. I figured when everyone else started getting notifications I would, but anyways, should I contact them? I mean have they already done the backerkit for it? I'm getting kind of worried about it. I have the Paypal transaction on record but I don't know, it's just being weird. I really don't feel like messing with all this right now. But anyways, any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Long Live the Queen is the only one on that list that I've played. I was lured in by the Death Simulator and enjoyed it. It is most definitely not a traditional VN and is more about building your character to avoid death so you can become Queen. TotalBiscuit did a playthrough on his wifes twitch channel (He's not an anime'ish fan) as well as a WTF Is... video:

 

Spoiler

 

I need to play War of the Human Tanks sometime as I've heard some interesting things about it. Also not a traditional VN.

Thanks for the list. I'm interested in the visual novels, but not sure where to start. What 3 VNs would anyone recommend out of this list?

If My Heart Had Wings (with restoration patch) even though the science of flying bored me to tears a lot. One of the routes really was nice and great (I forget her name but the one in the wheelchair). The game is butchered without said patch so play with the patch.

 

Princess Evangile is great though lame discount. One of my favorites earlier this year and I played the uncensored version. The sex scenes are usually 1 and done and I believe there is 2-3 each character. Nothing special honestly. The stories are great and my favorite of the stories is the rose group character (the one who won the tapestry contest best girl!!).

 

Planetarian I still need to finish but it's very good. Very well regarded even without the sex scenes. Need to finish this one. Price has been lower though.

 

I'd recommend in this sale If My Heart Had Wings with restoration patch. Do watch for Princess Evangile to go lower though. I really enjoyed my time with that game and will easily buy up the fan disk that will be localized eventually through Mangagamer.

 

 

I'm buying Amensia for sure. Hopefully the gameplay is alright and doesn't make me feel weird being a guy playing an Otome (some do for sure...).

Spoiler
It's safe to say they don't give a Fuck or their twitter guy is so gonna get fired, haha

I would guess that they don't give a Fuck judging from my past CS experiences with them, but I will side with them on this and join their 12K followers.

EDIT: I just went to follow them and they are up to 19.9K followers. Awesome.

Great...either they're waiting to show up in the flash sale for some reason or IFI's decided to move the new discounts over to Steam.

Just confirmed my Muv-Luv $150 pledge. I can't wait until it gets here. :whee:

Will this game only be available to those who pledged?  I didn't hear anything about it till it closed.  I prefer physical carts for my games, so I'm rather curious.  I like RPGs and games with  a good amount of story.

Yea.. thats friggin weird. Sorry but that sounds very annoying to me. The more i hear about this game the less i want it. First the stupid ass censorship which is making me think of canceling the LE now this =P

Eh, it's an annoyance for sure but not even close to being enough to not buy the game.

 

Thats just weird. I know theres pr0n versions of a lot of visual novels and stuff.. but isn't this an SRPG? There are like sex cutscenes in it? Or something in the gameplay?

Eiyuu Senki is more like a blend of Grand Strategy Lite with turn-based RPG combat. You have X amount of actions per turn and you spend the action points by selecting an event and putting character towards that event, which locks them out of any other events/battles for that turn. The actual battles you place characters on a grid field that you select for that event (or have leftover that weren't used for events prior to ending your turn) and then use them to battle in a turn-based typical RPG battle system.

 

Console versions are always the all ages version of course, but yes there is a PC version that has sex scenes. It's not translated as far as I could tell. I'd assume that the sex scenes were tied to either conquering areas or certain event scenes.

The physical Vita Editions (and maybe the PC Physical Editions) may be/may not be available after the Kickstarter release. Extras will most likely be sold but once it's gone, it's gone.
