“Don’t be sad its over, be happy it meme’d.” — Internet Lincon. Ah yes, it’s that time of the week again my dudes and dudettes! Welcome back to the Forum, the place where we waste time in the most productive manner possible. As always I’m your host for the Thursdays, Nior, and I hope you’re all having a fine week.

Me? I’m doing okay. My week has been fairly ordinary, but today I get to stay home although it’s not for the reason I wanted. There are no buses running today (something about a strike for better security on the job) so if I were to leave home, I don’t even know how I would return. Instead, I get to stay home playing Danganronpa 2! It’s been a while since I played VNs in general, especially this one. I finished the first game years ago on the PSP and the announcement of Too Kyo Games (for the unfamiliar, a new studio founded by the creators of the Danganronpa and Zero Escape series. Basically a match made in VN heaven) finally gave me the courage to open my wallet and play the damn thing.

And wouldn’t you know, I made the mistake of getting attached to the characters but what could I do? One of the girls hit all of my weak spots and I couldn’t help it but do all of her events. And then she died the next day. If the goal was to crush me game, congrats you dun did it.

But enough talk! Time for a Non-Stop Debate!

You can stop hiding Daisuki. We all know its you...

  • How’s the week?
  • VNs! Like em? Hate em? Tell me.
  • Sometimes DLCs are actually good. What are some of your favorites?

Now go and Talk Amongst Yourselves! And if you feel like talking with some other peeps in real time, why not join the TAY Discord server? We have fun and games and maids. I’m dead serious.
