  1. Rant: Steam doesn't need quality control

    Imo its the quality of the tiddies that is the problem Why buy those when you can get Senran Kagura or Valkyrie Drive or Moero Chronicle or Gal Gun?

    Discord is a great way to keep up with friends but its not good for public discussion.
  3. Rant: Steam doesn't need quality control

    I talked about visual novels with you. I mentioned Danganronpa, Zero Escape, Steins Gate, Song of Saya, and Fate/Stay Night did I not? While we're at it, you can also throw Occultic;Nine and Punch Line onto that list. The list I gave RTDragon was in response to his "story driven gameplay" statement which is not limited to VNs, hence the mention of JRPGs and other games as my defense of myself saying I take interest in story heavy games. This is why I replied with just VNs to you, but a wider variety to him. I apologize if I misunderstood what he was intending. If that was the case, I'm sorry, however I don't appreciate being told that I don't "appreciate story driven gameplay" or that I was trying to "pad my list". He said story driven gameplay, not specifically story driven visual novels. I realize however that its my bad to bring other games up when the topic at hand involved VNs. And speaking of more VNs, Net High translation when?

    Huniepop isn't a visual novel. It was just an example since its famous and was threatened by Valve. Also Huniepop is neither a powerpoint presentation nor is it a bad game. Its a dating sim crossed with a Bejeweled clone, and its pretty fun imo. I even made a review for it. I thought its dialogue was hilarious and irreverant, and liked the art and Bejeweled/Candycrush gameplay. Different girls wanting you to match different things based on their personality was kind of neat, and it was a bit of a challenge to keep up with everyone's traits when it comes to asking them questions and trying to date them. Plus the lewdness added an extra layer of fun to it. I like fanservice. I like story driven VNs. I recently finished the Danganronpa series, and from what I've played, I really like Zero Escape too. I had full intention to play Steins;Gate, Song of Saya (please oh please let this get a Steam release), and Fate/Stay Night (also localization much needed) once I got the chance (though Zero Escape is top priority for the moment). I just also like fanservice. And I wasn't bringing up VNs like Steins;Gate and whatnot because said games weren't the ones being threatened by Valve. Stuff like Steins;Gate never had any bearing on the thread as they've always been well within Valve's rules for the platform. Its not because I don't enjoy them. They just weren't relevant to the thread. wew I've played plenty of story driven games. Danganronpa, Zero Escape, Nier, Drakengard, Cave Story, Solatorobo, Final Fantasy, Tales of, .hack//, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, The World Ends With You, Undertale, Analogue: A Hate Story/Hate Plus....The list goes on. Its just that for the most part discussion of such isn't relevant to Valve's decision.

    The Witcher 3 has more explicit sex scenes than Huniepop. Conan Exiles has more nudity than Kindred Spirits on the Roof. Yet the latters were the ones threatened while the formers not. You could talk about intent as a game, trying to say one emphasizes sexual content while the other simply contains it, but some might argue Huniepop's main appeal is it's Bejeweled gameplay and Kindred Spirits it's romantic progression. So then you've gotta think "where do I draw the line" and that gets hazy once again depending on the game. Trying to create defined rules that don't come off as arbitrary and vague for games that could be argued as one way or the other (such as titles that are very sexual but contain other things) make such dealings frustrating without being unfair in some manner or making someone upset. And unfairness or questionable allowance is bad for a place where people might depend on sales to succeed. There IS literal nukige on Steam, and I'll admit it'd be harder to defend some of that as anything other than playing pornographic content but...Well, I honestly can't think of any way to defend or justify something like say "Material Girl" as anything other than cheap porn. Though I never wanted any games to be disallowed to begin with. Valve's original threatening of games was a bit odd however. It was clear they were going after pornographic content recently, but some of the developers and games they had personally okayed already in the past. Mangagamer asked them if they could put games containing pornographic content on Steam and just have an off site patch and they agreed, yet their games got struck by Valves threat, with A Kiss for Petals: Maidens of Michael even being removed despite another game in the same series with the same content being allowed. Kindred Spirits specifically had already been reviewed in emails and okayed despite containing uncensored nudity (which Valve was made aware of when they okayed it) only to also get hit recently with a threat of removal. It was clear Valve wasn't entirely sure what to take aim at, that they themselves were blind. Anything Valve would've done with stuff like those would have been going back on their word in some cases and leaving a situation of "how come they get away with this but I don't?" in others. I suppose one could just ask Valve to put more time and effort into researching these games though so they could know what they're taking aim at and act appropriately.

    Valve is stationed in the US, so I would hope the US. They do have a history of keeping games available that are illegal to sell in certain countries and just disallow selling to that region though if that makes you feel any better. Gal Gun is illegal to sell in New Zealand, and Valkyrie Drive in Germany/Australia, yet they're both available on Steam. Just those countries are region locked out of those store pages.

    Twitch still isn't Steam. Run by different companies and used for different purposes. A game being on Steam or not isn't based on Twitch rules. Steam does what it wants. Twitch does what it wants. They might sometimes work together on something. They don't have to though. Also Steam has its own streaming capabilities now. Albeit more limited. I imagine any rules they might've set and enforced would've upset someone or had a level of arbitrary vagueness to it. Defining quality and effort is nigh impossible, especially for titles that teeter the line like say Goat Simulator. Same goes for offensive content, considering people just recently were pushing for Agony to be disallowed on Steam.
  8. Rant: Steam doesn't need quality control

    Bumping this because in a curious bit of news, Steam is actually doing exactly what I wanted it to. This comes in light of recent news where a couple weeks ago they threatened a bunch of visual novel devs and a few other devs including the creator of Huniepop to censor their games or else they'd get removed (regardless of whether or not they were already censored or even contained pornographic content to begin with). Said news got a ton of backlash, and they went back on that and apologied to the devs. And now, as of yesterday, we now have a blogpost from Valve explaining what they will and will not allow on Steam, and basically, they're saying they'll allow almost anything: https://steamcommunity.com/games/593110/announcements/detail/1666776116200553082 The best part: I'VE WON THE NICHE WEEB GAMES ARE SAVED Why bring up Twitch though? I don't understand; Twitch is a different platform from Steam. Its a streaming service, not a game client.

    I tried spending time on FAF due to how quiet it is here but that forum is nightmarishly bad. Also I'm kinda jelly of the Phoenix/FAF meetups that have occurred. Some of you people are really cool and I've never met any of you in person. ._. Glad you all have fun though. Not many people got banned really. Just a mix of clashing personalities pushing people away, a lack of advertising, and Discord being popular that resulted in this.

    Dakini was successfully funded and its already having chapters translated! Soon it will be readable for the world!
  13. Ever since I started taking my medication, while I'm feeling a lot better, I noticed I'm becoming a lot more idealistic and argumentative, like how I used to be many years ago.

    I can't tell if this is a good thing or not.
