Oooo. OOOOO. SWEEET. This is quite close to the heaven in internet I was hoping to find :D. But I’m that kind of girl who starts swooning in front of any peeks on sweet sweet pre-production art. This site just might make me faint because there’s SO MUCH OF IT hsjadgaskb. THANK YOOUUU <3<3
(I mean seriously I’ve been looking at this site all day with tears in my eye and calling everyone who passes me by at school to look at the beauty of everything in here jkhsfgbkhj)
That’s very similar to my reaction when I first found out about the site. Glad I could help!
So I bought Virtue’s Last Reward because it’s only $25 in the 3DS store. Aside from one huge flaw (the game corruption error, which I blessedly haven’t encountered yet) its design is much better than 999. You can speed through dialog you haven’t read yet! Possible game paths are displayed on a chart! The characters don’t spend 50 hours explaining things the player already knows! I think 999 had an interesting game mechanic (The number doors) that had not been fully realized and VLR is the gamemakers actually understanding it enough to use it well.
I’ve only reached two real endings so far (Tenmyoji’s and Dio’s), but it looks like this plot might actually be crazier than the whole evil pharmaceutical company execs kidnap psychic children and the replica of the Titanic with a frozen Egyptian mummy and the Global Consciousness thing. Which is everything I hoped for.
One thing that really bugs me is Alice’s outfit? Like I know it’s anime, but no one’s even going to acknowledge that??
Not any one thing in particular. I see posts on Tumblr all the time where people go “I like this thing so it must be feminist!” even if it’s not? Or like they somehow don’t understand that a fictional character doesn’t have the same rights as a real human being? And I have to remind myself that they will probably one day grow out of that (probably)???
I am so glad that I did not learn about feminism from Tumblr when I was 14 because I would not have been able to differentiate between the posts that make legitimate arguments and the other 14 year olds who have no idea what they are talking about either.
