Not sure which entry you're supposed to keep.

Enokidu Mao duplicate of Nonaka Kaori

Juju Rou and Suzurou are duplicates of Jujurou
Jujurou is also likely to be an alias of Abiru Toshihiro.

Also those transcription changes. Sorry about that, just what EGS said.

< report >Monmusu Quest! Paradox RPG Zenshou
I like this, as do a lot of other people, but it's likely not a VN. Here's a let's play (LP) that might help decide: link
He often explores more than is necessary, but I'd say it's a perfectly reasonable way to play the game.

- It has some narration (that is, text that isn't dialogue and isn't purely gameplay-related (like "Slime Girl takes 23 Damage")) but the ratio is quite small. Most of the text is gameplay-related or dialogue.
-There are some parts where you will spend a long time reading the story without interruption for around 10 minutes or so, but these don't occur that often. See the camp scene in part 5 of the LP above, or the first 2/3 or so of part 12 (warning: massive spoilers in part 12).
- I think most of the story comes in "fragments" or short scenes that you have to walk between. See part 3 (exploring Illias village) or part 7 @ 12:36 (slums).
- You will spend a decent chunk of your time walking through dungeons, fighting random battles, or exploring settlements by talking to random people. It's possible that this is just a story-heavy RPG.

Out of interest, how many people have Monmusu Quest! Paradox RPG Zenshou marked as "playing" or "finished" on their VN list, and how does that compare to Monmusu Quest! Shuushou ~Makereba Youjo ni Okasareru~ ?

< report >Well, typical issue of rpg VN hybrids. Evenicle also has the habit of letting you walk 5 steps between scenes. It's actually hella annoying. You have a not so big dungeon with like 20-30 scenes in it.

So yeah, I'm lazy, haven't checked the video, but what matters is how the story flows. Evenicle, without a doubt, belongs here. (Some of the longer scenes are like 400-500 lines long anyway, but outside of the worldmap it breaks the flow like every freakin minute for some random short scene as well..)

So what matters more is probably gameplay/story ratio and perhaps typical VN elements. (Backlog? Save during dialogue?)
I'd exclude free-roaming and exploration and just concentrate on when you follow the main-story. (provided the free-roaming and exploration aren't a super big factor that overshadows the rest)Last modified on 2016-04-09 at 11:19

< report >So what is the actual policy for Alias field being used for title translations, I've noticed them on quite a few titles now most recently Bitch Nee-chan ga Seijun na Hazu ga Nai! ,

I've also seen eyeless remove them on occasion (guessing when he notices them) and I've removed some a few times myself, but the FAQ isn't really clear on this matter, so I would like to know for when I come across them again.Last modified on 2016-04-13 at 22:52

< report >If you are talking about homemade translation put in the alias field, they should be deleted like the one of your example. Alias field is for extra-official titles, unofficial titles with enough community acknowledgement (like abbreviation, western translation that overtake the painful original) or search engine helper.
I guess the reason why homemade translation aren't accepted is because of translation war.

< report >Persona 4 Dancing All Night
Pretty sure this isn't a VN, since other Persona titles have been removed from the database.

< report >Can't compare it with "other Persona" titles. It's a rather distinctively different spinoff. So you need another reason. (My gut-feeling tells me it doesn't belong here, but that's not helping of course)

Speaking of "other Persona" titles though. Are the arena games really not here? That stuff's like Blazblue, just with even more story and less battles. By vndb standards those games SHOULD be here for sure. (reading 3 hours with a grand total of maybe 5 minutes of battles in between.. if that doesn't count I don't know anymore)

< report >@kiru I tried asking the same thing here at once, but nobody answered my question. I've played the first game completely through (with over 15+ hours of the story) as well and I think the battles only lasted like 30 seconds at max. So I really think we should also add 'em here, they fit perfectly.

Besides you really can't call Chrono Phantasma a borderline game since out of the 25+ hours there are only like 10-13 battles, but with Stylish mode and the difficulty set to Easy you can pretty much finish 'em in like 20 seconds. Besides the final boss battle of course.Last modified on 2016-04-15 at 18:55

< report >What about Arcana Heart and the more recent Guilty Gears? From what I've heard they have comparable amount of story. Though I haven't played them myself so, I can't comment more specifically.

< report >I don't think Arcana and Guilty Gears have "comparable" amount of story. I mean I don't know this for sure, but Guilty Gear precedes Blazblue and I'm pretty damn sure it has considerately less story than even the first Blazblue. (and the first Blazblue is the most borderline case as it has story-branching based of gameplay achievements like winning with a certain special-move or I think also without taking damage or something. Basically for 100% story you have to actually put a decent amount of work AND battles into it)
As for Arcana Hearts, the only game I played had barely story.


I mean keep in mind, these newer Blazblue games and Persona really are VNs through and through in the story mode. Some of the Persona 4 Arena "paths" are like 3hours and they have like 7 fights in it. (Which take 30 seconds each at most) It's btw based on Yu's path, it obviously varies. They also have typical VN-style narration and so on.
Of course in the end someone needs to have played a game in question before we can add it, but normally I'd assume Blazblue (and P4 arena by the same dev) are exceptions in the genre.

But that's also why I said that with P4 Dancing, if we wanna remove it, we'll need a bit more than just "P3/4 aren't here". How long are the dance segments, how long are the story segments and how often do you get the dances? Also is the story VN-style or not? Stuff like that.Last modified on 2016-04-15 at 20:25

< report >To other mods: When you delete staff entry due to it being alias of another entry, please include link(s) to the proof in edit summary. Or link to a post in this thread, if it has appropriate sources.

@kiru, traumatizer, jazz957
Please move the discussion about Persona, Blazblue, etc into a separate thread. It would be more convenient for all involved parties that way. You can start a new thread linked to Persona 4 Dancing All Night I guess.

Edit:
#1422
r44484 - should this really be counted as a release?
It's basically a lets play that's being translated on the fly and it probably wont ever cover the entire game.
I don't think this is something we should include as a release. Could other mods also voice their opinion?Last modified on 2016-04-16 at 04:09
