t9104.72017-04-22Is it normally distributed?Gotta agree that it's not really meaningful whether a single user's scores are (aproximately) normally distributed. Everyone has likes and dislikes

t8821.92017-02-13this Visual novel cannot be run in linux mintWeren't updates impossible to turn off in Windows 10? I have no experience with Win 10 but from what I've heard you can't even tamper with updates in

t8697.122017-02-11Beat Heaven's Feel day before yesterdayWell, there's no need for epilogues in bad/dead ends so I think only the 5 intended endings have an epilogue (Fate technically has 2 since the two

t8718.212017-02-10Do you read all the routes?I'm a completionist albeit a bit disorganized one. It would bother me if marked a VN completed without finishing all the routes. Though I do make

t6790.272016-07-18How'd you feel if Japan no longer censored?While there are excpetions in my VN lists, the porn is not the main reason why I read VNs and represents only a small portion of overall playtime, so
t7712.62016-04-24How Long Have You Been Reading Visual Novels?Well, it depends, I might've stumbled upon a few VNs in the past without kowing about the genre. I started actively reading them about a year ago

t7524.122016-03-06Length of the VN?@11 Zwiebel: Well I got that most of it (if not all) was not serious and/or over-exaggerating, but it got me curious all the same so I looked into it

t6954.1422016-02-26Muv Luv KicstarterTrue, I forgot about CGs. It does look a bit jarring when next to each other, but I don't think I'd notice if I just played the 16:9 without trying
t6954.1392016-02-25Muv Luv KicstarterCouldn't they use Altered Fable assets to make it 16:9? Unless of course Altered Fable also used cropped Muv-Luv images in scenes that were set in
t6954.1372016-02-24Muv Luv KicstarterWell, 16:9 format and cinematic subtitles from MLA will make it look a bit better even without other graphical improvements.
t7447.112016-02-14VN list status "Planing to read"Not a bad idea, though it might make the whishlist look rather cumbersome. Maybe pop-up thumbails over pointed-at entries?
t7068.362016-02-14The non-VN eroge discussion thread@Gabezhul: "I actually like this game, but damn, is it newbie-unfriendly!" I wouldn't say it's newbie-unfriendly per se. There's a lot of stuff you

t7371.162016-01-15does reading VN improve you reading and writing?To be honest, there are no "perfect translations" from Japanese to English. The languages are way too different from each other and there are often
t7371.92016-01-14does reading VN improve you reading and writing?Your description is a bit general. Visual novels are usually Japanese / English (if translated, or native) reading material. Do you hope to improve
t6356.252016-01-13Woah, whoa, "True sequel"? :O#13 I think it can be considered "true sequel" in the sense that the Beta timeline is the "original/true" timeline Okabe started out in, Titor wrote

t6954.642015-09-28Muv Luv Kicstarter^ I think that may have something to do with the price distribution of the backer rewards. Clannad had the limited pledges for $1000 and $7000
