    Not at all. It's pre-SotN Castlevania with lolis and fairies and pretty dresses. ;)

    Koumajou Densetsu, the first one, is kind of a bit rough around the edges and stuffies, though it's still pretty good. And the second one is just awesome.

    Some of the bosses are very hard, though. Mostly because of the genre mix: When you are on the ground, and maybe jumping, you have a normal hitbox that includes most, or all, of your character. When you are flying, however, you have a much smaller hitbox, and thus the enemies can throw all kind of shit at you while you still have a chance of evading it. In the second one you can only fly for a little while before needing to land to recover your, like, flying energy, so that makes the bullet density a bit frustrating.

    Also, it seems they are thinking about making a third one already, which is kind of awesome given it would have to be based around Imperishable Night and thus include a character switch system, kind of like Portrait of Ruin and Castlevania III. It's enough to make me think of actually buying the previous two and donating for the third.

    You mean, if it's fully playable already? It is, you can find it here: http://mother3.fobby.net/

    I don't know wapanese so I can't compare if it's faithful to the original, but I think it's pretty good.

    Ever17: Out of Infinity. The only VN I've read, actually, but I think it is pretty good, um, for what it is. For a VN, that is. Yeah.

    Tastes may vary a lot, so it is hard to make recommendations. I left several titles out because I can't wholeheartedly recommend them to average Joe, no matter how excellent they are in their own niche (Bible Black, heh heh)

    (+/-) depending on your tolerance for certain anime/manga/etc. clichés.

    Look the shit up yourself and see if it works for you. For the more close minded ones, probably only the A-list works. And as with any entertainment, if you start with the good stuff then you'll be forever ruined and won't be able to enjoy the mediocre titles.

    Thanks, imma check these.

    The only VNs that actually managed to hook me are the translated liar-soft titles (though all the repetition gets aggravating in the end) but they have a nice atmosphere and pacing, writing isn't that bad either.

    I'm basically looking for something with a half decent story plus writing, good atmosphere and no desu desu kawaii uguu moe lolis popping up every time there's a dialog.

    Most nitro+ works have few desu desu kawaii moe lolis, and even if they do it the lolis usually meet a bad end.

    Kikokugai and Hanachirasu have both been translated, you might want to check those out.

    If you happen to have a taste for Japanese mecha, don't miss out on MuvLuv Alternative. It's like a Hollywood epic, flashy and full of spectacle.

    Tried downloading this but I'm getting a crc error when I try to unzip it. Redownloaded just in case and had the same problem again. Tried getting it from a different source but the patch didn't work with that version. Any help?

    goddamnit Black Cat, I didn't read your post properly and jumped at pre-SoTN Castlevania clone. What is this Touhou shit??

    EDIT: And pre-SOTN Castlevania was about manly men with whips and gothic horror, not flying magical girls.

    Oh damn, another game to play.

    EDIT: Is that patch for the original Ys Origin only or for the Ys Origin Extra Disk as well? Nevermind, that Neogaf thread clears it up.

    Not really wapanese (how can you say it, chapanese????), but there is a translation of ''Swordsman and Fairy'' or ''Legend of Sword and Fairy'' or whatever.

    http://chinesepaladin.org/phpBB/viewtop ... f=9&t=1006

    Game is actually pretty rare in torrents overall, but I downloaded it on Underground-gamer. Seems like an JRPG with chinese mythology and made by chinese people.

    But more about wapanese, there is a supposed translation being made for this...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Js4rddrZ ... re=related

    Things are going onward with it.....

    ZWEI 2 (weird name, huh?) was made by Falcom (company who made Ys series), and strangely is a PC exclusive in Japan (weird lol).

    Falcom seem to love their PC exclusives: Ys Origin is one as well. And ZWEI 2 looks cool.
    :thumbsup:

    On a related note, I've started a Ys Origin LP (the link is in my sig) to show off the newly released English translation, so you can see if you like the way it looks before you decide whether to play it or not.

    YU-NO is a 10/10. They don't make them like this any more.

    Us hardcore wapanese look upon it as fondly as the average Codexer does stuff like Ultima 7 and Wizardry. This was from a time before all VNs came to have only four choices throughout the entire goddamn game.

    Game wise... uh... it's like a hentai Day of the Tentacle except with parallel universes instead of different time periods?

    Ok, what the fuck?

    The game is constructed from three parts:
    - prolog
    - main (the part you actually can call a game)
    - ???epilogue???

    The first part was quite long with the with the "click option to move, click option to look etc" kind of gameplay. It was long and quite boring but I endured through. Then we entered the main game, which is a lot better, the gameplay changes to "click mouse on stuff and to move etc" and shit starts to hit the fan. A lot of strange shit.

    But anyway, the third part. Holy shit! Seriously, instead of explaining ANYTHING the game shifts back the previous gameplay mechanics and we enter a story that is almost unrelated to the stuff happening previously. But fuck that, did I mention how incredibly pretentious it becomes... and it's looong. It was so bad I just said "fuck it" and deleted it altogether. It's like the devs decided to take a dump on the keyboard after doing a quite decent job.



    Saying that, the "sudoku in base 12" riddle in the end of Mio path was top-notch, lost 3 hours on that fucker :thumbsup:

    Got 98% cleared.

    I'm guessing the game ends after you collect all 6 gems? I got bored after being warped back to the beginning each time after finishing two different routes.
