Just Finished Ever17, that was one hell of a ride, words cant even describe how awesome it is and how awesome it feels after finishing it. The story is just so well thought out.
[QUOTE=Jund;34602385]Whenever I got into it I would normally end up going to sleep at 3-4 in the morning[/QUOTE] I ended up reading it for three hours and then went to imgur and [B][U][I]fuck why is it 6:30?[/I][/U][/B]
playing saya no uta, I'm thinking "yeah it's kinda weird but not that bad" Then I reached the part with Fuminoris neighbour...oh god no.
So, /mai/ is certainly the loneliest place on the internet by far.

[editline]8th February 2012[/editline] Done with Ran's route on My Girlfriend is the President. It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling and had me laughing in tears at the epilogue.
Just started on MGITP, what the actual fuck am I reading?

[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;34603471]I thought we were supposed to drop this subject, as Orkel said earlier.[/QUOTE] Oh sorry, I guess I didn't read properly. Anyway, the steins;gate VN is amazing, but I have seen the Anime already.
Currently playing G-Senjou no Maou, seems good so far. Liking the references. Maybe just be the english patch. But still, there has been some. Should I play Steins;Gate even if I've seen the anime?

Okey, will do. I'm going to put it on my long list of games/VNs to play. Is there any VN that's not in the OP that you guys would recommend as well?
[QUOTE=*Freezorg*;34605285]Yes... Watching an anime is never a reason not to read the corresponding VN[/QUOTE] Especially if it's a long VN - anime adaptations will cut, paste and generally jigger and poke the content about until they can fit it into their allotted run time (especially if it's a VN with distinct routes). Example off the top of my head - Fate/Stay Night had a 24 episode anime that only showed one route (with bits and bobs from other routes for flavour), so the VN still had a lot to offer. It's pretty much the same as movies based on books. There are some really great adaptations, but even those might miss out on a lot of stuff.

[url=http://vndb.org/v57]Sharin no Kuni: Himawari no Shōjo[/url] is also pretty good, and it's made by the same people who wrote G-Senjou, AkabeiSoft2.
My only real problem with Steins;gate is the horribly slow text speed. Even at the fastest setting it's excruciating. I don't understand what the characters are saying so I don't really need to have the text synced with the speech anyway.

I think we need to establish some kind of security system to ensure we don't become like the KS thread is quickly becoming now. It could be like a little robot that sits on the table and says "Holy shit this is getting pretty gay what are you doing" whenever it detects unbecoming levels of otaku-ness.

[QUOTE=CheeseMan;34608543]Disturbing tales from the other world.[/QUOTE] Well fuck. They get to sit around and make everyone who liked KS look like a bunch of obsessive bastards. Great, just great.
[QUOTE=chunkymonkey;34606693]I'm not gonna play CLANNAD because I've watched the anime. Same with Kanon. Sue me.[/QUOTE] You should at least play the Fuuko route in Clannad, it's quite different from the Anime and the feels are stronger. Oh, and Kappei's route, since he didn't even appear in the anime. I quite liked him.
chunky you should know better!

[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;34610036]HOW DO THESE FACES WORK[/QUOTE] Don't whine, you get used to it pretty fast. :v:
