DLsite really needs to label their releases better. One can't tell at first glance whether the text for Shizuku no Oto is in Japanese or English. You might say, "Well look at the screenshots!", but a lot of lazy localization companies don't bother to take English screenshots or post English trailers.

There are tags. It's actually set up just fine. I knew it was in Japanese without looking at the screenshots.

I meant to post last night, but forgot.

There's a really good bundle on Groupees with some great games and good prices, but some of them have adult content, so I won't link the bundle here.

From $1, you get Go Go Nippon and Nicole.

From $4, you also get Aselia the Eternal and Demonbane.

From $10, you also get Edelweiss and Obscene Medical Records of a Married Nurse.

Four dollars for Aselia AND Demonbane? That is a fantastic bargain. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I can't believe that the $4 and $10 tiers weren't reversed, but the tiers seem to be organized by platform. $1 is Steam, $4 is JAST, and $10 is MangaGamer. I guess MangaGamer just wanted a bigger piece of the action, but the $4 tier is definitely the best one. Plus you get the Steam games below it.

I've heard good things about Edelweiss, though (at least after they fixed the translation), so I put in for the $10 tier.

It's pretty decent. I liked it well enough if that means anything. Definitely has some interesting elements and twists going for it.

Is "Eiden Fantasia" also included in the package or is it just going to be "Edelweiss" by itself?

Anyway, I just finished "Love At First Sight". It's short, but also fairly adorable for a romance involving a girl with cyclopia. Interesting to see that it's getting a mostly positive reception, at least from what I've seen.

Uhh... Good question. It's a coupon code for the game to be free when you buy it from MangaGamer. If someone gets it, they can try it on the combo pack and see if it works. I have my doubts that it will.

I used mine on the regular version and it's not accepting it for the combo.

Not too many locations. The steam page for it, a couple Youtube impressions, and a couple impressions/reviews picked off of Google search. No absolutely glowing impressions/reviews but still enjoyable for what it is.

I guess "not getting trashed" would have been a better phrase to use then?

Heck, even if it's at a "whatever" level of reception, it's still more positive than what I thought it was going to be.

Finally got my Acer Ionia W4. Playing VNs on it is smooth sailing.

Presumably the new issue of Type-Moon Ace has some news about the Tsukihime remake...?

Honestly, I'd rather they translate KimiNozo. Muv-Luv already has fan patches.
