    Some people might want a thesis or full censorship, other people want to be warned about stuff like that. Not even all eroges have content like that (i was thinking of Seasons of Sakura but that one has one rape in the trash 'nun' route and is about barely sixteen girls, so ofc it's pedo bait).

    I guess a line about 'abuses women' followed by 'but it's a parody!' is enough for you, but i'd prefer the cold clarity of tags. Even one that is super general like 'edgy sexual content' would be enough (among all the also useful others).

    One does not play an eroge expecting it to be respectful. You know what you're getting into here.

    So far I've skipped through and read about the games I've played myself, and I'm highly impressed. I agreed with about 90% of it to begin with and was persuaded to agree with you about the rest. I'm looking forward to reading the whole thing from the beginning now so I can see the whole story of CRPGs unfold.

    Congratulations with the release!

    It's one mighty fine looking book, and it's nice to see so many people contributed. Did you actually get in touch with Scorpia?

    Only thing missing was a review of Nahlakh...

    Maybe that guy was pulling a Lady MacBeth and wanted him to go into detail about the rapes.

    You could always write the Nahlakh review... +M

    And yeah, Scorpia was super sweet. I already sent her the finished book as well. :)

    That's why you should always wait for the Enhanced Edition / Director's Cut / "We actually finished it now" version...

    Don't you think 500 is a nice round number?

    Todays's leftard moralist's "problematic" is the conservative moralists' "controversial" 50-80 years ago.

    I like how The Avatar is fighting an Evil Trent in the screenshot for Ultima 1. Hopefully The Avatar was able to resist the Evil Trent's Enhanced Edition spell.

    EDIT: The credits are a bit confusing. There are two "DB" for example, and some of the contributors are not listed. I think it would have been better if the reviews were "signed" by the name of the contributor instead of just the initials.

    I find missing the peculiar Hard to be a God; otherwise, I'd buy that for a dollar!

    EDIT: Missing the incestuous simulation of Demonicon as well. Is everybody playing budget European shitty-charming third person ARPG too lazy to write about them?

    Some editing is still needed for sure. I noticed my contribution is attributed incorrectly for example.

    Congratulations on finishing the book felipepepe
    I had a quick browse the other night before going to bed, and before I knew it I had read until Moria. Great layout, and nice writing on the part of all contributors.

    If you ever come to Nagoya, drinks are 100% on me!

    I like that definition of procedural generation
    I knew such expert like felipe will get it right!

    Some people try hard to define 'procedural' and 'random'. Worst attempt i've seen was basically "procedural is like random except it's good" :)
