ahah, well unfortunately i'm the type who tend to getting absorbed into the story of anything by watching or reading, even in an adult games
i don't even care anymore about it's sexual contents when the story is interesting, wait, maybe it's more like i kinda "forget" about it being an adult game with sexual content :LOL:

so yeah, a good story and plot are important, just like HH which not all about a pretty pictures

might be the reason why i like the sandbox type with renameable MC better, so i could feel about "being" it's MC in the game
well, it's not like i totally dislike linear VN with fixed MC name either though :D
Yeah, I get into the story, a good plot is pretty important to a game, even a porn one. I just don't like it sometimes when it gets too dark without something to lighten the mood. All dark and serious all the time makes me lose interest. Well, I mean, unless it's like a sexy goth, then Dark is fine... :LOL: I don't play a porn game to get all depressed or angsty, I get enough of that from real life. ;) It's like the DC movies, you are basing this on a comic book, yet you left out the comedy! :p


That is one thing I am loving about this game, the rich lore, that is distributed in an organic way, without a huge text dump. And even while there are many sad elements in the game, there is always something there to help you crack a smile.

I like RPGs, so while I like to pick my name in a game, I almost never use my own. The character's name influences their personality. Take my second character in Fallout4, Chiti McBuildingshit. She was a Chinese sleeper-agent who awoke upon finding a Chinese officer's sword, and killed everyone in her path ...also, she build lots of settlements. :p
Did u meant about her being horny? Or her holding a knife? :unsure:

depend on ur answer i might feel a bit envy or totally sorry
Can't it be both? :whistle:

The quantity of events in this update isn't much. More than half of this week's development time was spent on Ashley's event alone. There are a few story events, 4 side character events, the bar (and all of it's vast amount of upgrades, events, music, mechanics, etc), Android's anal animations/event, and some other stuff.

Agreed, i also like a serious plot as long it's not too much or twisted to be really dark. A depressing story? in an adult games? definitely going to be a turn off imo :LOL:

And yeah, I didn't meant to be biased since I like this game, but I genuinely thought that 0.5 is pretty well balanced. There's a few sad moments, yes, but in the end it's far from being depressing. If anything, I like how the drama in 0.5 is written and help us, the fans, to understand more about the characters in the game. I didn't meant to be mean but I really think that Maria in the red dress is really beautiful
especially when she's crying on the hill during the break up scenes
at first I only thought her as a sociable-slutty-girl, but her drama change my opinion for her :D

:ROFLMAO:
While I agreed that character's name would be good if related to their personalities, i'm still unable to be like u who are able to naming them with somewhat silly yet related names :LOL:
Like I said before, it could ruining the atmosphere when shit getting serious, lol
For the similar reason, I also hate a heavy spoiler and getting interrupted while being in the middle of the so called absorption :D

That would be quite something and I really mean it :ROFLMAO:

I got some experience with someone possessive irl and trust me that it was quite a headache
So, while I really don't mind a yandere in the games, having them irl is....what? a literally deadly nerve-wracking?
Since they're basically a possessive one, with a license to kill :LOL:

But I like mah Batman brooding! Can't do that when those other shitty pajamas heroes play for the giggles, man!
And that's why The Dark Knight Returns comic is superb. Or, well, Batman in general.
I mean, the whole Batman punching the Joker around should teach everyone not to joke around Batman. It's not wise.

The more I see Ashley, the more I think of her as a cute puppy. How am I supposed to go back in the game and fuck her?
Can't we, like, just hug her?

Actually, depressing stories can work in adult games, there's even two entire genres of Japanese VNs devoted to such plots, and . Although the former does generally have a happy to mostly happy ending while the latter is neutral at best to soul-crushingly despairing for the sadder endings in some titles of that category. Although, the fact I can enjoy such works thoroughly could just be the fact that I'm an utterly depraved degenerate whose perversions have surpassed all limits rather than how someone should normally respond to sadness and despair being intimately woven into a work of adult fiction.

So, while I really don't mind a yandere in the games, having them irl is....what? a literally deadly nerve-wracking?

I know that's the common interpretation of yanderes, especially thanks to complex yandere characters like Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki and Anna Nishikinomiya from Shimoneta, but that archetype actually does have some depth and variation as well. Years ago, I used to recommend a manga series called Abnormal-kei Joshi, a.k.a. Yandere Harem, to show the various potential elements of yanderes since it used simple yanderes that each typically used one or two prevalent yandere elements like the Stalker, the Possessive, the Murderer, etc. It wasn't necessarily a good series and the art was... unique, but as a piece for learning about an archetype, it did have its uses.

Now, to avoid making a purely off-topic post...

Quantity isn't always important, although some threads on here do become a little heated when an update doesn't appear to have as much content as some individuals expect, but the quality is what really counts. And from the sounds of things, Ashley's event will have a great deal of quality content much like Lin's events from the last update. Also, given the fact you're adding in a whole new system with the bar as well as the size and effort required for Ashley's event, the update does sound like it will still be rather sizeable all things considered. Although, I guess I'll have a better idea this evening when I'm at home so I can test out the alpha.

I don't do that because I can always hear during name input a voice in my head telling me that if someone saw it he/she would tell me I'm delusional for thinking it was me in the game.
That and I'm not even sure most game support accented characters - that's the harsh reality of being european.
Sometimes it even shows messed up in online documents because the shitheads that made the database forgot people can have those in their names >>
I don‘t put my real name in these games for mostly the same reason. I mean I like to get absorbed by the story but at the same time I want to keep some distance. I like to feel in control of the MC, not being the MC myself.

The second picture in the Previews reminds me how hot that girl is in that outfit. I understand that some updates can‘t contain the content everyone wishes for. But it‘s also important to focus on new features or laying the foundation for future updates. The bar and its contents is an example. Looking forward for what‘s ahead.

I need to play up to that event again, because I was too impatient to see what‘s going to happen. Next time I will max her out before triggering the event, even though it‘s very beautiful and really got to my heart.

Ah, thanks for the references, I remember knowing it's terms years ago but forgot how it were called :LOL:
And no, I won't disagree with u since it's all about personal prefs, that's why I'll always put the "imo" word when other's opinions might be differ from me

I mean, there's even a ton of ppl who like netorare, which is pretty depressing too for me
I don't mind netori and netorase, but I guess netorare isn't my thing, at least for now (who knows I might get twisted at some point in the future :LOL:)

I feel lucky enough for not having an experience with a yandere in my lifetime, but while irl they might be called as a sociopath, they does actually exist
At least in my country alone, it has been a few cases of assault as an act of jealousy. Might not really like a typical yandere in japanese story but close enough I guess.

Ahah, Yuno is literally one of the top idol in yandere world while Anna is...well, interesting, since a simple accidental kill would flipped her ero-switch that far
And of course there's Shinya, as if one isn't enough, the author decide to gave him four psychopaths :LOL:

Netorare is top tier when you want to feel disgust for the human race and hurt inside because of the frailty of human bonds. It's the guiltiest of faps, it accentuates the dreadful feeling of emptiness and void that follows male ejaculation. I personally come to something like a full stop, I get there and start wondering what the fuck did I fap to.
Bonus points if you are single and depressed and think that bodily attraction is shallow and long for a far deeper bond.

I can't do it, NTR just hurts too much.

I couldn't even stand a netorare on any generic teen SoL animes/mangas (no sexual contents) :LOL:

Indeed you must have a masochistic vein to enjoy it. If you do, it hurts so good.
I remember how at times I remained disgusted and sad for days because of a particularly intense one.

Anyway I hope for none of it to happen in this game, because I care too much for the characters.
