That'll definitely make it harder to progress and contribute to VN burnout. I'm powering through since I have the summer before my next semester starts but it's hard finding the time. Going from one VN to another, especially of this length, sounds really tough too.

I definitely understand the slow feel of the beginning. A lot to establish that's really important and fundamental to the later segments, but it's a slow burn of a VN. I'm enjoying it a lot too. A little over 1/4th of the ways through and it gets more interesting with time. My friend got me into it and we do reading sessions almost every night to keep making progress. This is also his 3rd time going through Umineko. It's his favorite VN.

Yep. It's amazing what modders out there are able to do in GZDoom nowadays. They're fun for any length of time, whether in short bursts or long journeys.

Oh really awesome! What did you think of it? It's personally one of my top 5 mangas; sucker for my psychological thrillers especially when they're pulled off as well as Monster

It doesn't seem to be on sale atm (though I may have just missed it) but we also don't share sales so it was probably just a US only thing. I think I've seen it on sale before so it'll probably go up eventually.

It's a completely understandable conclusion to come to as a lot of things get mistranslated when it comes over to the west from Japan mixing up the L's and R's. I can see what you mean with the Kerboros example however (though thinking about it they could just be going for the greek name/pronunciation which is actually kerberos)

It seems like it takes place in modern day or something so it's probably connected as opposed to a direct sequel as El shaddai is way in the past form what I know. It probably didn't sell well considering how difficult to find any information on it; El Shaddai is the same as well though that got a cult following which resulted in a pc port. Clearly didn't put much work into localization then lol just a quick and dirty release

Even going off of descriptions of how demons and things work seems to come off a bit knockoffish of SMT but with some unique twists. It's art also just seems kinda generic from screenshots.

I'll say that could just be being used to SMT's designs as a lot of mythical beings have wildly varying appearances depending on how the artist in question wants to depict them or the interpretation of the creature. I can't speak on the whole translation obviously but the Lucifel name is just a carryover from El Shaddai which was an intentional choice rather than mis translation (He's still an archangel and working for god in El Shaddai)

I would hope so judging from what I know of El Shaddai which is also pretty great on a story level.

Huh I'll have to give it a look. I thought it I'd seen it before and it was one of those shovelware anime games but your description plus it's sequel status to El Shaddai has me interested. Thanks for the recommendation.

It's so overlooked! I hope you wind up liking it. There aren't many Gothic horror RPGs out there. Much of the team was made up of ex-SquareSoft employees who went on to form their own studio. Hiroki Kikuta (composer of Secret of Mana) was heavily involved in the game's development, too.

Yeah things being marked up over here is the usual unfortunately so I'm not all that surprised. The typical full priced game is anywhere between 90 and 120 nzd which is why I try to buy them from uk owned retailers which sell them for far cheaper (for example the place where I put my pre order down is about 72 for the ps4 version and 79 switch (damn nintendo tax))

The pc port of P4G didn't add any new content however there were quality of life improvements like custom difficulty as well as support for higher resolutions, higher quality assets and support for arbitrary frame rates. I can see that translating Raidou and adding in voice acting would obviously cost more and are more transformative than the additions of the P4G pc port so it should cost a bit more; P4G is 32 nzd so I would think 50 maybe 60 at the most however over 3 times the price is a bit ehhhh to me.

I can see that point of view but, I don't know added voice acting and what is essentially a model change for a character for this 18 year old game doesn't really constitute a full priced game to me (90 NZD). I'm still going to pick up all the versions just to support these games (and hopefully encourage more pc ports) but still a bit iffy on it considering things like P4G were as cheap as they were and far more recent in comparison.

I am planning on it though still a little on the fence on which version I'll play (planning on picking them all up because clown) leaning towards ps4. The price is a massive yikes though especially over here so I'm sitting until some of the other places I usually pre order from put them up as they are typically cheaper.

Oh, you know it! I preordered all 3. Console versions are physical, and just like P5S since the Steam version is digital only, I opted for Digital Deluxe to play a few days early + have all the DLC.

I've seen a lot of people debating its price, but I'm kind of indifferent. If this is the price I have to pay to get more Megaten games on PC (or just more Megaten in general), then I'll pay it. /shrug

Huh really? I didn't actually know that though it makes a little more sense considering I think they've done a few reprints of FES while the og only got the one release. Hey well uh you could always ya know sail the seven seas as well for the etrian games . On the 3ds hacking I don't even think they've put in place anything to stop it besides blocking entry points because mines been hacked for years where I've regularly used the eshop and never gotten banned. I haven't pirated anything so that could be it though.

Oh yeah for sure. UK accents tend to vary a lot more because of the various different dialects while the us dubs tend to just go southern if they talk different. Ceilo at least kinda made sense because of the dreads it gets a pass. I also find the us dubs use the same few VA's especially atlus stuff. I swear Yuri Lowenthal is in every atlus dubbed game.

I think people actually had to datamine to find that because I don't think the game tells you so not surprising. I'd actually been sitting on it for a while before the announcement. I'll probably just play hardtype after it drops now. Huh really? didn't actually know that is weird.

Oh Apollo is like bottom of the barrel for me lol. The 3ds games are good but the director change really shows in areas sometimes for the worst. AAI2 is actually a ds game but it was never released over here because AAI1 was such a flop (unsurprising it's not great) which is a shame considering it's quality.

Fair enough; I get that as well and I did like that in the older games but them dropping that pretense was refreshing for me. Ah I see I never actually beat that game but I might have to give it a dive if it's got lore stuff. Oh yeah similar for me as well as I used to stay at my sisters during the holidays and I think RE5 either came out around then or we just picked it on a whim and played the shit out of it.

Ah I see; I usually just do it all first round and then drop it so I can move on to other things. Means I end up playing them for an extended amount of time but if I like the game it doesn't matter all too much. I believe it was a similar story for me on Devil Survivor overclocked (though I obviously didn't get around till later) though I'm willing to be about 10-20 hours was just grinding and fighting Luci. God that fight.

Same with me or at least for Nocturne; tend to lean magic in IV and IV:A. At least you can still get Freikugel to soften the blow (except for Noah)
