It is 2005.
You come back from highschool.
It is friday, and you have no real plans for the rest of the day.
You press the oversized power button on the yellowing plastic case of your Pentium 4 computer.
BEEP.
In the 5 minutes it takes for it to load you change clothes and grab a snack from the kitchen.
You sit down; the familiar glow of Windows XP's silver theme greets you.
You roll out the keyboard tray and give the mouse a slight wiggle to wake it up.
You double-click a salmon-colored icon on your computer desktop.
It takes a few seconds for it to load, but when it does, a mellow melody flows out of the cheap speakers positioned to either side of your heavy CRT monitor.
You smile. It's good to be home.

    I don't get VNs. They are in this very weird liminal state of being not quite light novels, not quite text adventures, not quite puzzle games, not quite porn games.
    Played fate just because of its status (and GAR memes), and was pretty bored. Excluding the part near the end where "mana transfer" happens and it triggered a genuine laugh. Because of all the fucking RDSWORDSWORDSWO I completely forget that it is ostensibly a porn game. Powered through UBW, didn't even bother with HF. And that's when I was a teen, when games with edge and titties are supposed to be extra appealing.
    Just want to say that it's kinda weird I can't stomach them. Maybe it's because I'm a racist, since I like wordy western CYOA games (shame there are like 10 of them) as well as CRPGs, but not JRPGs.
    Or maybe it's because I don't have waifus, who knows?

    Regardless, fuck off with your gayass nostalgia bait, play a real bideo jame or read a real book.

            Was King Arthur a woman? Was he a woman meek for the romance of an autistic Japanese schoolboy obsessed with swords? No. chud King Arthur is a disgusting concept.
            Should have stuck with the prototype where he was a bishounen and the MC was a woman. Would have been much less offensive then

          You're the LARPer you idiot. People only ever had the visceral kneejerk reaction to the redesigns because they took it as a sign that the Remake would be fucking terrible and a soulless cash-in that spat on the spirit of the original. It wasn't. We were wrong. The Tsukihime Remake is probably the biggest love letter any creator has written to one of their prior works, ever.
          It's fine if you prefer the older designs. I do too, for the most part. But if you're still acting like such an insufferable giant gay about them, you're essentially holding up a sign announcing that you're a poser who's just desperately trying to fit in, because you somehow haven't gotten the memo yet.

              Hisui's route is undeniably one of the better ones, personally I still cant decide if I like hers or Kohaku's more, or if it's even my favorite which might be the case
              It has a lot going for it to, best schizophrenia scenes (stream of consciousness ones in particular, I believe thats what they were called), an actually normal heroine, and more background on what happened to the sisters back when they were young, leading to Kohaku route
              Ironic how the route of the only normal girl has the most schizoid energy of them all.
              Speaking of the sisters, it's kinda disappointing the whole "synchronizer" thing was never brought up again, at least to my knowledge, really hope they expand on that with Red Garden

                I have to wonder if it will even make the cut at all, given it relied entirely on sex. I know Arc gets a fade to black in the remake but her backstory isn't quite as twisted as Hisui and especially Kohaku's. Also hoping the spider doc isn't used as a means to absolve Kohaku of all responsibility for trying to kill Shiki and Akiha.

                I fear that that will be the case, when I finished the vn and thought back on it it just felt like a way to make Shiki have sex with Hisui and somehow get him back on his feet again, because there was no way for him to actually face SHIKI otherwise

                Is the sync power only activated by sex? If I'm not remembering it all wrong, Akiha is syncing with Kohaku whevener she drinks her blood. Though in that case, Kohaku is just trying to push her over the edge to inversion impulse.

      No, it was bad, dude. Do you even remember it?

      Like, everyone remember the sunflower field ending, but do you remember how it got there? It's basically the same lead up to the climax of Hisui's route, but where in Hisui's route, it all ends in a fucking bloodbath where everyone dies, in Kohaku's, they all just start crying, and then there's a time skip where all their problems get supposedly worked out off screen.

      That's really bad. That's REALLY bad from a writing standpoint. You could feel how Nasu wrote himself into a corner. "Fuck, fuck, fuck. This is the last route, so it needs to have a happy ending, but everything I have right now shows they're gonna kill each other." Then he just says they have character development off screen, and then Kohaku smiles at you with sunflowers in the background.

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        From what I recall, Hisui's route was meant to account for both her and Kohaku but Nasu's mates or whoever tested the game hated Kohaku not having a route of her own so he whipped it up in a short amount of time. Shame too since stuff like SHIKI being amicable towards Shiki and skipping town or Akiha being the final boss deserve a proper shake.

        >I have to wonder if it will even make the cut at all
        I fear that that will be the case, when I finished the vn and thought back on it it just felt like a way to make Shiki have sex with Hisui and somehow get him back on his feet again, because there was no way for him to actually face SHIKI otherwise

        Oops.

          they could also have Hisui explain what the synchronizers are before the fade to black, but I cant remember if Hisui does this before or while her naked cg is already on the screen, but that could make it lewder as a reminder of what tsukihime really was... (not happening)

          Is the sync power only activated by sex? If I'm not remembering it all wrong, Akiha is syncing with Kohaku whevener she drinks her blood. Though in that case, Kohaku is just trying to push her over the edge to inversion impulse.

          Sex is the best way for it and makes the synchronization work at its full potential, blood consumption also works but it's weaker and not the actual thing

            It would make sense to retain the lewdness of the Far Side, but let's not kid ourselves. You make a good point either way, but with how drastically they changed up Ciel who's to saw the twins and Akiha won't get similar treatment?

            Hell it just occurred to me, can a CERO rated game even have Shiki and Akiha hook up for real?

          it's going to do what it did with the Arc sex scene. It'll set the stage, fade to black, and then cut back in with the whole "Ooooh noooo I did a HECKIN' rape-a-rino' shtick.

      Remake works better in some scenes imo. I like that they replaced the really weird out of left field rape scene with Arc to Shiki just being unable to stop himself and slicing her into a bunch of giblets again

          yeah but it's more of an animalistic desire to ravage her, if you don't stop him in remake he's basically moaning while he slices her into a bunch of meat again

        Tsukihime since I prefer the setting and characters, but FSN will always have a place in my heart. The gacha and various non Hollow spinoffs can rot.

        I prefer Tsukihime's setting far, far more than F/SN's even if both are urban/supernatural combination, but it was the former that made me like those settings, same with moon-related themes, and I prefer Shiki.
        FSN was cool tho, but I prefer it slightly less over tsuki, the production value from tsukihime to fsn was an incredible jump to witness tho, seeing the sprites move during the prologue archer/lancer fight was awesome, same with its overall visuals and music

        tsukihime was always the cooler setting with better characters, but it is hard for it to compete since it lacks the massive amount of media fsn has

        Based.
        Reading the Tsukihime Remake was so unbelievably comfy. First time I've ever nostalgiafagged for a game so hard.

      Fate, Tsuki is just too low budget. Barely any sprites, those shitty blurred photo backgrounds, and the same 5 music tracks over and over. That Fate also has a better plot in general is also helpful.
