Demonbane:

Gunpla is amazing!
So I'm the only one here who played it? Because holy damn is it awesome.

[up]It is awesome! It messes with the Lovecraft Mythos a bit, but who cares? Rule of Cool!!

You know I hear about this a lot but how powerful is Demonbane?

Never heard of it before. What is it?
Das kann doch nicht sein!
I have some interest in it. But that it's made by Nitroplus (I haven't really read a work by them yet, but I'm rather tainted by some things I heard) and that it uses stuff from the Cthulhu Mythos even though the developers are apparently ignorant about it (as in, it just seems to pull random elements without a real point), put a damper in it.

Also, "Nya"? What kind of name is that? That's so unsubtle that it would make me lose all respect of Nyarlarthotep if that would appear in one of the actual stories.

People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.
[up] Just accept that its Super Robot and runs on Rule of Cool. If you can deal with that, then you'll be fine.

A better first Nitro Plus novel is Saya no Uta. It's not that long.

I doubt that I can deal with that.

And Saya no Uta sounds even more unappealing.
People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.
[up]But Saya no Uta is a heart rending love story underneath all of the horror elements...

As for not liking Demonbane, I can totally understand that.
Started reading this, no real idea what it's about except I'm pretty sure that was Nyarlathotep running a bookstore a moment ago. Couldn't find the voice patch, unfortunately.

Am I supposed to laugh at how ridiculous the MC looks after making that contract?

For some reason, I just got used to it. Maybe it's because it's not as ridiculous as some of the insane events of the VN.
It's also heard to take the big bad seriously since in my head he's either Yusuke Yoshino or Kyousuke.

Bad choice in villain VA in general. Kayneth, man, I am never going to be able to take you seriously after hearing Doctor West. Not that I really did anyway. At this rate Nakata Joji will be voicing the hidden fourth heroine.

Got distracted by Fate Extra which is probably for the best since cheesy ending is cheesy. Did Al's route last.

Do pushups.
[up][up] If I remember correctly, he voices Augustus both in the anime and the VN. What I didn't recognize at first was Nobuyuki Hiyama as Sandalphon. Must've been all the distortion. Played this awhile back when it first came out because I loved the concept (I'm a bit of a mecha junkie) and the character designs. Leica's route ended up being my favorite but I don't think I could, in good conscience, hold it up as an exceptional VN. I don't know, there's something about it. To me, the story just wasn't exceptionally well told. It was neither good nor bad.

I wish the Tyrant got more screentime and back story. Out of all the Anticross, I would have thought that she would get more exposition since she was part of Vespasianus' whole Moon Child project, plus she was cool even if she did run around in bondage gear. I know she plays a big role as Ennea during Al's route but it seems so radically different from how she is described by everyone else, including Therion.

Wise Papa Smurf, corrupted by his own power. CAN NO LEADER GO UNTAINTED?!
Her behavior jars even with the narration. She's eeeeevil except she never does anything bad ever.

And yeah, pretty mediocre VN. Al was probably the only character I actually liked.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
