recently finished Eien no Aselia on Very hard and almost finished Sein Narukana's first play through. Glad i did not just be lazy and go with the translated version, cause i heard all the nudity was castrated from it. BTW for those who played Aselia, i can say Sein Narukana's translated version is something to look forward to, since the Yuuto and Aselia's daughter, Kaori, Kotori and Tokimi all made a return.

Might try Sein Narukana another story if i have time..... but i those 2 game definitely got replay value

InfernityFan's review is pretty spot on and I agree with it. If you read VN's at all, add MLA to your "will read list"-it's excellent.

Listen to this man! He tells the truth!
I just finished Muv-Luv Alternative today and I have to say it was incredible. I know I don't haven't seen many VN's myself, but so far Alternative is by far the best. My only problem is that there doesn't seem to be any CG or sound test mode :(
[shameless link] I can still claim I'm a free player cause I haven't spent any of my money on the game, but instead I used Prizerebel to get my EX packs. Gran Train = viewtopic.php?f=13&t=11761

the ML anime adaption is based off a spin-off...I am not impressed. But, maybe I will be surprised.

In other news, I strongly recommend that anyone with any interest in visual novels to read Katawa Shoujo. It's free to own and brings some of the best writing, art, and themes I have ever read.

What makes Katawa Shoujo a masterpiece above all others is that it's message is applicable to this world. It explores a sensitive topic in a mature way while staying realistic and relatable. I give it 11/10 and probably my number 1 spot for best VN of all time because of that.

P.S. Revvie needs an OVA

After carefully reading through Katawa Shoujo I can only agree with Rom's sentiment, it is a highly sensible piece of work, and while not entirely professional in language, has a really nice (as in "real") feel and atmosphere to it. I strongly recommend this as well, and thank Rom for pointing it out to me.

On another note, I saw a few Mahou Tsukai no Yoru adds floating in Akihabara before I left, so another delay is unlikely.

Well, it's about time... I mean, Diablo III is coming out...

GUILD WARS 2!

Also, has anyone finished ChäoS;HEAd? Does it have good plot development/ characterization? I haven't been in the mood for the crazies to finish it.

Ive finished it and I thought it was good. There isnt much character development outside of the main character. Theres a hidden ending that unlocks after finishing the game that requires certain triggers and reveals a connection between two characters. This ending isnt the true ending an its kinda depressing. I prefered Steins;Gate over Chaos;Head,
Is anyone looking forward to the release to Robotics;Notes?
