    Hey so if Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus go on sale (or even if they don't ) you guys definitely should consider getting em

    Recently finished Hate Plus, all of it, and I really like how Christine Love writes characters. They're straight up visual novels, but no porn or anything. Pretty bleak at times, but all in all two excellent stories with solid characters.

    I'm really hoping those get Steam Sale'd. I adored don't take it personally, babe, it just ain't your story and Digital: A Love Story, but haven't gotten around to the Hates yet.

    If those go on sale, I'm going on a gifting spree.

    Just stigma

    Visual novels are extremely common in Japan and rarely make it to the west, but historically the ones that did make it were most often porn

    Well

    I is more likely for a Japanese VN to be an eroge than not.

    The ones that make it stateside usually aren't, though.

    Because we want to buy our porn out of dingy adult stores in the sketchy parts of town, not Walmart

    Do not have a cow, mortal.

    I'm struggling to think of any beyond Custer's Revenge

    BMX XXX didn't have any sex in it, from what I remember

    Because it's pretty tough to justify spending the money to license and translate a video game when you can't even display it most stores.

    It's why Fate/Stay Night and Tsukihime had to be fan-translated.

    Far Cry 3 continues to have neat moments surrounded by narrative bullshit
    I just had to sneak around old temple ruins to stealthily kill 3 mercenary captains while disguised as one of their men, in the middle of their camp, surrounded by their guys, and when it was done the quickest way to the exit checkpoint was down a cliff, so I popped my wingsuit and soared into the night like a giant murderous squirrel

    That is a delightfully silly series of events and I wish it was in a game whose story and characters I didn't hate

    I'm currently playing through FC3 now that I have a good PC and I agree on the narrative stuff.

    I'm playing through the Buck missions now and he's such a dickbag! :\
