Just noticed that  :switch:  Our World is Ended Day 1 Edition has a $8 coupon on amz putting it below $30.  Anyone recommend this VN?

Not sure how good the game is, but if PS4 is your platform of choice, Deep Discount has the PS4 version for $21.60.  Add another cheap game to get over $25 for free shipping.

It’s not bad but it’s not as good as steins’ gate. I finished it once but didn’t go back for the multiple endings. There is a lot of talk about breast sizes and sexual innuendos which became too much for me.

Very few things (not just visual novels) are as good as Steins;Gate.

Agreed.  It's just dumb when a VN (Our World is Ended) makes claims about itself in comparison to S;G.  Bad marketing.

 

Also that graphic misspelled kongroo.  Unless it was made by Luka-chan, in which case it's perfectly in character.

Ah yes, it should have said "congalee" to be fully in-character.

Yeah, I remember playing a bunch of Our World is Ended, but never got around to finishing it. Not that it was bad or anything, it just got lost in my backlog of games over time.

 

The game was a lot better than I was expecting. The perverted dialogue was a bit much in the beginning, but as the game went on it became a natural thing and also pretty hilarious at times. Also, if you don't want to play this kind of content around others, the Switch version's portability really shines here.

 

Story also took an interesting turn halfway through and made things a lot more engaging. Also, I really like the art style of the game.

 

I'd recommend it unless you're not a fan of the occasional perverted humor. Plus, at that price it's even better. Especially if it has the mini-artbook.

"The protagonist. A third-year high school student."

 

I wonder is this just a typo or if some PC-type move to make Joker older and some of the relationships a little less cradle-robber-y.

Do people really have a problem with a young protag dating the "women" in the game? To my knowledge, the Ren/Kawakami ship is one of the more popular ones

Mommykami is one of the more popular ones, but it's also one of the more taboo relationships because of the student/teacher aspect. Not to mention the ambiguous wording on what she might or might not do for her secondary career.

I've just been in a posting mood as of late. I know this place isn't as active as it used to be especially since Supplice quietly retired from posting news and Draekon stopped posting updates on new releases due to real life ordeals, so I just wanted to try to liven up the place again.

Was surprised yesterday to find Shenmue 3 from my kickstarter order in the mailbox.  That's gotta be a first that a kickstarter game arrived earlier than retail.   I haven't broken the seal, but just happy this long journey is now up to me actually making the time to play through the series.   Hopefully this sells well and Shenmue 4 is done so we can wrap up the entire story.

The slipcover is so incredibly lame. Like, if they're going to offer something special like that for Kickstarter backers, they should put maybe a tiny bit of effort into it.

True... but... just happy this didn't end up delayed like most kickstarter games and I had the game in hand a day early.  The slip cover... I'll probably never even use.  For me, this was all about supporting one of my all time favorite devs for one of my all time favorite series.   Hopefully the game is as good as the others.

If those are the nominees then yes, they're clearly setting it up for a Death Stranding win 100%

Too easy of a good headline to draw attention from the movie industry, given all the semi-known actors in the game.
