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 you haven't watched the higurashi anime then get that visual novel and download the ps3 graphic mod. Best horror/suspense vn out there.

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. 

Thanks for the info.  The collector in me wants the physical edition, but I can pass on the extras.  About the only extra I ever use is soundtracks.

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.

Just to confirm what comes with the physical ce.
1.Vita physical ce
2. Digital pc copy
3. Digital stretch goal (android/vita)
4. Plus other goodies


Also, does anyone know if this version of dead or alive has the English option

Im curious what 'blatant pedophilia' game this was about. And you do realize that saying your against censorship unless its about something that you think should be censored is the height of hypocrisy right? Kind of an all or nothing thing. I actually find pretty much all rubbing type games creepy as hell and gross but i dont support censoring them.

 

Blatant pedophilia:

Spoiler

 

As I've said. 99.99% of the time, I am vehemently against censorship. However, in the case of extremely questionable content like this, which is not just aesthetic, being put into a game that is otherwise a completely different affair, I do see its validity and appreciate it.

 

I find this content absolutely disgusting. Not because of the "rubbing mechanic" and not because of the sexualization, but because it is clearly a very young child involved with those two things. This isn't something that can be fixed by changing her age in the script, as done with many imports. It's a little girl.

I've also said this a million fucking times, but I'll do it once more. I would be okay with an option to toggle the censorship in this game. This game is, otherwise, a standard RPG. If someone wants to make an entire game based on this shit, have the Fuck at it. I, personally, won't come anywhere near it

 

There are a multitude difference between fantasy violence, vulgarity and sexualization of women that at least look of age and that of pedophilic content. There's things like competition and comedy to be derived from those things. Many of those situations, if there were no consequences... no one actually dying or getting hurt physically or mentally, would be fun in real life... just as they are in games. Would having any sexual interaction with a child be fun, even if there were no consequences to you or the child?

People are advertising for them for free, so why would they get fired? Their whole response from the beginning is easily a marketing decision. Take advantage of the backlash and throw in a little bit of your own controversy, then sit back and let everybody market your products for you. I'd have done something very similar if I were in their shoes. They just need to make sure not to take it too far.

Just to revisit this. Up until the last six months or so, crossing SJW shibboleths in any field got you fired and blacklisted from your chosen field EVERY TIME. They still do that and they routinely change the rules and find new things to rage about. If they get your name and can launch a hundred emails to your boss, it doesn't matter what the charges are or what you actually did. You're out the door.

 

It's only just recently people can get away with tweaking them. The night is lighting up.

 

So, all I'm saying is, taking advantage of the backlash would not have been an option even just a short time ago.

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.

I might have misunderstood you, or the Steam sale this year, but I thought Steam's not doing flash sales this time around. The sale prices are the price for the duration of the entire sale.

I was referring to the inevitable PSN flash sale this weekend.

Hey guys I haven't posted since 2.0 thread.

I tried to stop being interested in preorders but NISA keeps emailing me on promotional offers... Alas...

Anyway seems like everyone getting along pretty well. Happy Thanksgiving, unless you're a turkey, then I'm sorry for your loss.

To anyone else who got the Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition on Amazon, what is your delivery date? I just noticed mine says the 8th even with Prime, and the 7th with One Day.

 

Not sure if Amazon hasnt updated the proper delivery date, or if their Special Edition is delayed for some reason

 

And this scummy ass rep tried to slyly charge me for One Day shipping after our conversation.....

It's not even free. I paid $1.99 shipping for my order over $100. And it has to be over and not precisely $100. Great deal though.

If you want the amazing 10% off pre-order for Euphoria (hardcore adult VN) pre-order it from Mangagamer. Got it myself and tomorrow I know what I'm reading/playing.

Upon further thought regarding the DOA thing, I think if anyone is truly against the fact that the developers are caving to SJW's, then one way to get that across is to not buy the game at all. Few things send a poorer message than developers cutting corners and gamers buying their stuff regardless.

But then, it also certainly sends a message if enough people in NA import the game. It says that there's a big enough audience, and there's no sense ignoring them to please a bunch of babies who were never interested in their products in the first place. I suppose all we can do is what we think is right and as long as we voice our concern we've done our part.
