Yeah, sure. While we're at it let's just rename this forum ConsumeProduct2 and fork out KIA3.

I read that at least 3 players had to drop out of the tournament due to chest issues. This was from 1 week ago and I couldn't 100% verify it nor had interest in researching what is typical dropout rate at prior tournaments so I deleted the post, but I think it's safe to say the impact in stop-and-go sports like soccer and tennis is suspicious.

Hell, there's a Canadian soccer start that has been diagnosed with myocarditis. Tennis defense supposedly was air quality, which is rich since it only impacted 3 players significantly enough, and for soccer it's the number of games. Let the victimization rate keep growing and bring on the 4th shot...we'll see when normies wake the fuck up.

Piracy is the great equalizer. I wasn't tracking this series, but on the back burner it goes.

I'll be sure to get the unaltered, fan-scanlated version guilt-free -- thanks Viz, you localizers always look out for my bank balance.

The only community I've personally found worth visiting regularly is c/NoNewNormal. Everything else is either a non-starter or hit-or-miss, at least for frequent visitation.

More than 60 different games have been banned from being live-streamed on the site, such as Grand Theft Auto, The Witcher 3, Heart of Iron, World of Tanks, and Rainbow Six Siege, in an attempt to comply with “guidelines” from the Ministry of Culture and “other authorities”, who have deemed the evil games as inappropriate.

Where's Dr. Jill Biden when they finally need her?

it helps build natural immunity

Maybe not significantly for the vaxxed, since it appears to hinder production of antibodies. I'm not sure what the correct answer is, but it clearly plays a negative role.

Pure bloods OTOH will get lifelong immunity. Yay!

Shame, I really liked Ron, wish his son could have lived up to that billing.

My condolences for your loss. I've been lecturing my dad on avoiding Remdesivir and to get monoclonal antibody treatment (or Ivermectin, HCQ, etc.) in case anything happens.

I am so disappointed that I voted for Trump twice.

Alternatives were Clinton and Biden, don't feel down about choosing the lesser evil. It's politics, they go out of their way to ensure either your choice either doesn't matter or is tinged with great bitterness.

The developer is free to antagonize fans on social media and be a lazy fuck that can't be bothered to release different versions of the title on multiple platforms.

In return, fans can spend their money elsewhere and wait for the superior fan altered version to appear on the high seas for free.

This but with the caveat that while I've only seen 'vegans' be extremely ideologically militant, in my experience 'vegetarians' -- outside of foregoing meat -- have a very wide spectrum, with some even being OK with fish.

Might want to do it before the Aussies get onboard with preventing the unvaxxed from leaving the country. At least one country (Singapore?) has started that initiative already. Yeah...

If this building ever gets made, has 1 or 2 jets smash into it, and the whole thing goes to smithereens...there will be less 'conspiracy theories' to go around, I'll give 'em that.

It's about a month old, but I finally got around to watching the JRE episode with Peter MucCullough. Amazing watch, probably the best I've seen on the topic -- barring the symposium of concerned doctors, the latter being the 1st for me that fully explained toxicity of the vaccine (spiked protein).

If you haven't seen it, I strongly recommend it. This topic is covered in roughly the 2nd half. About 3 hours long, here's Rumble results (again, ~3 hours long) - https://rumble.com/search/video?q=Joe%20Rogan%20McCullough

Edit: Odyssey as an alternative platform if Rumble is problematic - https://odysee.com/$/search?q=Joe%20Rogan%20McCullough

Art style is my conjecture. In case of SS3, it contained actual footage of women (not fictitious / drawings), which they scrutinize more closely. Doesn't excuse the SS3 ban but those are the differences.

Could also be attributable to the human factor in different reviewers, which would allow for trends but not prevent anomalies. We've seen ideological games get green lit or stand for far longer on the store than they should, see LGBTQIAWTFBBQ+ explicit titles and BLM troll game as examples.

Subverse also had the benefit of being highly preordered, which could be yet another factor.

Subverse doesn't have an anime art style, but they did ban Super Seducer 3 as mentioned in the other comment thread.

Ghostlight's official comment is in the forums, relevant statement:

Due to circumstances outside of our control we have had to remove the Purge Corruption minigame.

One can argue they're lying, it's IFI's fault (which alone doesn't discount past decisions being a factor), or they couldn't be bothered to port the uncensored Switch version but rather the censored PS4 one.

It's not like we'll get official clarification, but Steam censorship at large - even if inconsistent - is undeniable.

This has been going on for many years, to the point that OneAngryGamer created a 'Waifu Holocaust' list - https://archive.vn/98zUW

A little over a year ago, this topic came up and I made this comment - https://kotakuinaction2.win/p/11RNtKIvcC/x/c/

Important to note that Nintendo does NOT do the same censorship with 3rd party titles today but relies on ratings boards - which are an attack vector but at least bring some level of independence from the platform holder - while on Steam games with college student characters, or no sexuality at all, have been banned presumably for art style.

Steam's monopoly is not good. I'm hoping niche alternatives like DLSite can one day be more competitive.

Nintendo Switch version was uncensored, but not the Steam release because of Valve censorship.

Edit: The latter is my assertion based on trends but not established fact in this case. Valve's historical decisions, however, are probably factored by any publisher.

The answer to big government? More big government.

Don't worry, the meat packing monopoly will make good use of this.

I did! It's actually in my top 10 list. I played it around a decade ago, though I never did 100% it. That's a time after college where I got into VNs and am only returning to it now....big gap in time.

Excluding active plays, e.g. Baldr Sky will be here:

  1. Saya no Uta
  2. G-senjou no Maou | Kara no Shoujo | Steins;Gate
  3. Fate Stay/Night | Sengoku Rance | Sharin no Kuni | Tsukihime
  4. Clannad | Little Busters

No idea if the list rankings are consistent and actually make sense, since I didn't 100% some of them and have scattered memories, but it's not intended to be formal and good enough for personal use.

VNs are a really underrated medium. Looking back, I wish I had been less obsessed with work over the years and spent more personal time on leisure. Dropping sports completely about half a decade ago really helped open things up, slowly.

Thanks, in that case I'll do Sumika + Meiya's routes in Extra -- maybe skimming -- and read the summaries for the rest. I forgot to mention Unlimited (for external readers: the base game is Extra + Unlimited), but if I also don't like that then I'll do the same there.

Alternate is good, but also fucked up and disturbing. I'm about 60/40 on whether it was worth reading or would rather I hadn't read it at all.

Hah! My favorite stories are generally either bittersweet in nature or outright tragedies, so I'm guessing it'll fit in well for me.

Does Extella Link do anything special compared to other musous (e.g. Dynasty Warriors) in terms of gameplay or is it strictly the characters / nostalgia factor?
