Steins; Gate

Shiren the Wanderer

(I'm not sure if it is cheating to vote for I am Setsuna, since I checked it out the night I got it, put in about an hour I think)

I'd like to add it to the OP if you don't mind, but what do you mean by the PS4 thread?

I actually own both, and have been wanting to play them for a while. But I can't choose between the two, so I haven't voted yet. I played a tiny bit of Monster Monpiece, and really liked the battle system. But I feel a little lazy in gaming lately, and don't feel like grinding, so I might go with Stein's Gate. It's just a visual novel right? No puzzles or mini games of the sort?

Sorry, I meant the PS4 CAG Niche group. I have the same PSN name as here.

 

From what I seen it's just a VN. No puzzles and stuff but not sure.

Honestly as someone who earned the gold trophy rubbing medal on Monster Monpiece and beat it, there is very little grind. You can do all the encounters or not, since many are side parts, but you can get rare keys and sometimes cards there. The only thing I truly disliked about the game is how some evolutions were impossible to fully evolve without playing versus. Because of this I probably didn't have the most finely tuned deck, but it worked. I did like the game enough to give it about a 7.5/10.

I voted Steins; Gate just because I paid a couple bucks more for that game than monster monpiece so I really should finish it. I wouldn't mind the latter game winning though because then we could all knock out the online trophies together.

I voted Monster Monpiece just because Neptune is apparently in it somewhere.

I don't know if people are trolling or not, but the results are even more tied now. I haven't voted yet and don't plan to as I feel fine with all three games. So I'm going to let the poll wait out 1 more day, if its still tied I'll flip a coin or something.

Vote for the one you want to play most this month. You know, like a good relaxing VN.

Sorry, SAO was winning, but it was the least I wanted to play so I voted Stein's Gate... Now we need another tie breaker...

Well.... I bit the bullet and bought Stein's Gate. Sooooo I'll just go and change my vote and make this easy. If that isn't allowed, you can scold me later.

August game of the month is Steins;Gate (5 votes). It's on Vita and PS3. I think it might also be on PC, but not sure if it is on Steam. There is also a Japanese edition on PS4 and Xbox 360 I think. Anyway, all should be the same, so please enjoy. This is also a heavily story-focused game I believe, so please be mindful of spoilers in the discussion and use spoiler tags if necessary. 

 

Discussion of anything related is encouraged, such as the anime, movie, figures, and even the sequel. 

 

(I actually really liked the anime, so I hope this will be good, will also be nice to play on the train. If anyone sees a person playing this on the Vita on the LIRR, its probably me. Also got me to buy a Makise figure for some reason...)

I really need to rectify and play Steins;Gate. I got the limited edition for pc when it released, but never played and eventually got the Vita version last Christmas. I should play that....just hard cause i've been moving forever now....should be done maybe in 2 weeks....but yeah taking a lot of my time. I should just play a bit every night and hope I can finish it at the end of the month.

Well I guess it was technically the third email that I noticed it.  But some emails have blue text you can navigate to and select.  I was pretty tired last night when I got the first email with the blue text so I didn't even think to try.  Today I got another email and noticed it, so I went back to the first email that had it and noticed the blue was gone. But if you do navigate to the blue text you can pick one to use as the context of your reply.

Yes, replying to emails unlocks different locations, conversations, advances relationships and other stuff. Same with answering phone calls. All up to you if you want to or not.

Tutturu! Great Scott! This game is pretty damn cool. I think I'm about halfway through chapter one right now. I really love how even if you move on through a current dialogue slide, the voice work continues. Great for readers that read faster than the lines being voiced.

 

This game reminds me that the Steins;Gate anime was my favorite for a long while. It probably still is if I watch it again. I didn't watch each episode front to back the first time though, so I'm glad this game is more elaborate and in depth with the details. I feel like Rintaro has a different voice actor though, but maybe it's just because you don't actually see him much in the game. I was thinking about watching the anime again during this play through, but it'll probably be confusing to correlate so I'll just rewatch it afterwards.

 

I saw on the PS Vita thread, someone mentioning the sequel Steins;Gate 0 was coming out soon, I think September. I think it's nice that we coordinated it like that, so it's fresh right when the sequel hits. I feel like we could do that for more games, like FF13 before 15 hits, P4 in December before P5 in January, SOA before Hollow Realization, etc.

 

Here is some neat Makise cosplay. One, because the game has such emphasis on cosplay. And two, because I love cosplay regardless.

steins_gate___kurisu_makise_by_mirum_num

 

Internet infringement can be a pretty messy subject, so I'll throw in a reference here. I think her name is Anastasia MiraMarta. Really fantastic work, especially her Transistor stuff. I have no clue who she is, but she's pretty sick. Well, pretty and sick.

 

I'll have something else cool to show once I get back home on Friday. I'll also try to get more playtime in since it seems to be a long game. I do like just putting the Vita to sleep though and randomly starting again anytime I want.

Hmm. I just finished chapter one... And I must say I like the story and all... I just don't think I'm a fan of visual novels. I play on the pstv which probably changes the situation. I may struggle with this one...

I just started where I left off which is Ch 3. I forgot how good the story is. It gets you really engage and wanting to read one more line every time. The voice actor sounds the same to me.
