Shenanigans, food porn, -actual- porn (if you get that version: probably the worst written you can ever find outside of fanfic. It's rather impressive for that.), and etc ensue.


Ah, so it's just as bad as most sex scenes I've read from a Visual Novel that wasn't Cartagra. Looking REAAAAAAAL forward to it.

Just realized that you mean Fate/Stay Nigh

No, in the message you quoted I was talking directly and ONLY about Steins;Gate
XianMei posted...
Ok, I guess I need to clarify.

I never want to read slice of life. That bores me to tears.

I never want to read something where you date wierd creatures.

none of that has anything to do with Steins;Gate. Clarification unnecessary.

I wasn't being picky. I was asking for clarification.

No, you were being picky. If your judgement on a VN is based on "needs combat" or if it deals with some common themes then you're passing up on a lot of good stories. XianMei posted...
you don't need to be so rude. How about an apology?


I'm sorry that you took offense to the idea, but my statements stand. I see a lot of this "I have OCD and I need people to do stuff because I'm unable" crap and that's offensive to people who actually have OCD.

OCD does not mean "I'm a perfectionist, tee-hee". It means you are compelled to perform certain actions without logic or reason, such as checking the locks on your door 47 times every night. Or washing your hands until they bleed because you might be carrying one germ. It's a debilitating condition and your flippant use of it is abhorrent.

"I can't make my own mind up" isn't a symptom of anything other than being wishy-washy.

For those who actually don't want to take everything I say out of context however...

XianMei posted...
However, as far as visual novels with combat scenes go, those I'll read, but just not right now because most of what I've read lacks it, and I need to scratch that itch.

So yeah, you bet your ass I'm gonna read Stein's Gate. An extremely well written Visual Novel where my "reward" near the end isn't a bunch of bad porn scenes with an underage girl, written by someone who's likely never had sex in his life? Yes please!


and yeah, sorry. There was a typo there.

@arleas Hey there. I re-read what you said, and yeah, you did sorta take me out of context, but I don't think you did it on purpose. If you're still willing to talk, let's do so.

Yeah, I accidentally combined your post with Voidgolems. my bad.

If wasn't just a clarification for your specific post. It was an explanation for people who might take your post and think "he literally refuses to ever read any visual novel that lacks combat." Which is why it was important that I responded with this.

First of all, don't do non-apology apologies. Seriously, please, just don't.

That said, while I do have OCD, and I take medication for it and several other mental conditions that make me a barely functioning human being most of the time, I'm not sure if choice paralysis is part of OCD. I might change the name of my topics now. Just need to figure out what to replace it with.

I think you are ready to take that next step in reading. As you already mentioned tc, visual novels have many constraints put upon them by the fan base that buys them. The reason that there are so many slice of life VNs is because they sell. And they need to sell to break even.
Now actual books, now that is what you want. There are many choices, and many themes. They don't have the same constraints that VN do so they can be vast and expansive. They don't need to sell a thousand copies to break even. If you want that anime bit, get a light novel, which has a few pictures in it.
Honestly, I love visual novels. Steins;gate and Virtues last reward are my favorite so far. But they were the exception. Most are just crap. Especially muv luv extra. Man, that was terrible. It nearly made me quit visual novels altogether.
Now, say my name.

Oh, I love them actually, I've read almost 30 fantasy novels this year, and I've probably read the free previews of about 100 books.

BTW, there's a scary thought for you. Imagine if almost all books were Tween paranormal Romance novels just so they could break even.

Man, that is just f***ing terrifying.
