We'll see when they get to the actual horror bits.
Yeah there's not a lot going on in the early parts o they are goofing off. I wanna see their reaction to Sayo-nara

@Hotto Kenai: Ah, thank you. I'll look into that channel too, I think! ^_^
As to the Game Grumps, I'll admit that I'd stopped watching them some time ago: if I recall correctly, Arin in particular had started to rather frequently produce some rather unpleasant noises that spoiled the experience for me. :/
Still, their playthrough might prove amusing at some later stage—thank you, sgamer82, for mentioning it. ^_^
Yeaaah, I can't stand Arin either and that was back from his popular days of animation and biased game criticism
I generally find Danny the more personable of the two myself, though I don't usually have a big issue with Arin.
You're welcome and, since there's interest, I'll link when they get to the particular event with Sayori.
Also found that Jesse Cox and Dodger did a joint playthrough. Haven't looked at it yet, though I know VN's are more Dodger's thing than Jesse's
Watching some now. They know there is a twist, but don't know what said twist is. Dodgers keeping an eye out though the most suspicious thing in the first meeting is the protagonist thinking he'd done this before.
Also Monika is Russian.

I've started in on Jack Septic Eye's playthrough, and so far I'm really enjoying it. We haven't yet reached the "turn", so thus far it's been a rather funny ride as he's been playing it. Given how fond he seems to be of Sayori, I do wonder how he'll take said "turn"...
TK... somehow rubbed me the wrong way. Not so much that I thought the playthrough horrible, but just enough that I decided to stop. I may go back and give them another shot, however.
Mr. Hero's playthrough I'm hanging on to for now, with the intention of trying it at a later stage.
I've seen Dodger and Jesse's playthrough, myself; I seem to recall that it was very good! (Although they followed only one route, I believe.) Those two tend to play off of each other very well, I think.
And of course Monika's Russian. Someone had to be. ;P
, Re: Arin: I used to have no problem with him, as I recall. It was just that at some point he started to produce burps and suchlike of sufficient frequency and squickiness that I found the experience of watching somewhat ruined. :/
Also, since I haven't mentioned it yet, the thing that got me personally interested in the game, and thus looking at playthroughs of it, was a video from Game Theory over the past weekend that theorized the girls are assets from an entirely other game that the devs are working on diverted for this one instead. It's a two part theory, with the second part due later and planning to elaborate on the nature of the other game.
Not sure I'll play DDLC myself. I had a friend I've since lost touch with who enjoyed VN's so I'm familiar with them but only ever really tried one (Katawa Shoujo) and couldn't quite get into it (and a premise as unusual as KS's can usually hook me). I think that I thought of it too much as a game and couldn't get past how interactive it wasn't.

Doki Doki Literature Club! is one of those visual novels that I feel definitely makes the most out of its game engine to help immerse players in the experience. The game is free, so it's not like you lose much if you give it a try. Still, if visual novels aren't your cup of tea, then that's alright.
Fine, but don't expect a good one.
DDLC and Libtina are part of the same series, Yuri is Libtina, Monika will be the protagonist in another form.

Posting links or embedding videos without context is against the rules. Please post a summary of some of the points made in the video so people who can't see the video for any reason can still weigh in on discussion.
TL;DW added passive-aggressively.
I'm pretty sure that rule doesn't apply to embedded videos because the image and title of the video give enough context. Plus the rule seems to have been made so people don't need to leave the website to figure out the conversation, which obviously doesn't apply to embedding.
Going from this, it would only be against the rules if the post was
and nothing else.

No idea why it had to be added in a "passive-aggressive" way, but just remember that posting relevant points or a summary is required when sharing links or videos:
Embedded videos have been included in that rule. This is because some videos can't be viewed by people in certain countries for some reason or another, so expecting them to just click and watch the link is not helpful. Some people might not want to give certain videos traffic, so they're naturally not inclined to click links.

The title is shown in the video automatically, so that's just as much context as titling a link.
It's not. The video of that particular video tells me nothing other than Game Theory has some theory about the game. It doesn't tell me what the theory or theories are, it doesn't tell me what evidence they bring up, and it doesn't provide enough context for anyone who can't see the video to chime in on discussion.
This has been brought up before in other threads: titles by themselves are NOT enough context.
I don't watch the series, so I don't hate or like it. I would be bringing up the rule regardless of the channel since, you know, it's against the rules to post links or videos without context.

Simple version: The admins don't want forum posts containing links of any kind without context and there's no good reason not to follow that.
The rule says "without context" not "too little context according to an arbitrary standard". If what you are saying is really how the rule is intended to be interpreted then the rule should be edited to make that clear, because as it stands right now nothing about that post breaks the letter or spirit of the rules.
From how you're talking
Game theory video about Doki Doki Literature Club
is devoid of context, which is obviously not the case.
I'd disagree that lacks context. That makes it clear it's a video from Game Theory about DDLC. The only context lacking is not knowing what Game Theory is
You're forgetting this particular context: "What points are being brought up in the video?"
Someone who can't watch the video will have no idea what the points being brought up are. They only know it's a video from Game Theory, but that doesn't actually tell them anything more concrete about the video's content.
Point is, those types of posts are still against the rules. Just avoid making those types of post by posting a summary or a bullet point list of relevant points.

well I wouldn't quibble with that, anyway. Regardless we've now spent more time talking about a rule that, missed or not at the time, has since had its context cleared up than we have talking about the video being linked in the first place.

Having seen what this game is like, I feel like its trying ape too much from Other, better Horror Visual Novels like Zero Escape or Dangan Ronpa.
Dangan Ronpa I get to some extent, but Zero Escape?
It's kind of a Cliché Storm, yes. Tropes Are Not Bad though.
