    lets just hope we don't have both.

    btw, it's 2 months delay, not 2 days.

    They should just stock a Nice Boat: The Game until the release in June.

    Someone needs to translate the video.

    As for the delay, better to have the game delayed to fix the problems than to release it early with tons of bugs & glitches.

    I hear much talking yet no one seems to address the important issues:

    1.Will Kotonoha's sister feature again?
    2.Will Makoto's sister get a part on this one.

    This is the stuff that matters people!

    Overflow and KyoAni- did they go to the same school of publicity tactics?

    I'm thinking Nightmare Days means the days waiting for the game... and then the ones playing the game itself.

    Hmm, strange, while i barely played the first one (School days, around 10 -15 times), it never gave me any problems, i even installed and played it with english regional settings.

    the one that fail is summer days. you need to DL the 3,2 GB (yes, it's GIGABYTES. you don't read wrong) to be able to play the game.

    At least there is a patch. Not like Chaos;Head which just gratuitously crashes and yet they don't seem to care.

    Actually the only crashes I experienced were with the english patch. Just don't save in chapter seven expecting to be able to load it.

    "Just how hard is it to string together a series of videos?"

    Having spent the past couple of weeks adding improved video playback support to my visual novel engine, I have to say... it's harder than you'd think.

    But not as hard as just about any other kind of game.

    To be fair, the way that 0verflow does their games is hardly as simple as just a bunch of videos stringed together.

    I don't really think their method is a good way to go about it though, but basically their programming has to deal with overlaying a small image over the larger background still, and "animating" that specific part to make it look animated. It's why their games always have a really stiff feel to it. The only things with particularly real animation are the sex scenes, and a couple of other key dramatic scenes, as far as I know.

    But yeah, that's why you had moving mouths floating several miles away from where a person's mouth actually is (or at least, that's what I had, when playing Summer Days).

    Overall, it's just an unnecessarily complicated system (syncing it with the dialogue too), so that's probably a big part of the bugs.

    Of course, that isn't an excuse at all for releasing a beta copy of the game full of bugs because you accidentally used that instead of the master copy of the game... >_>

    Yea artefact is clearly ignorant as to the 0verlow games. They are *not* strung together videos. Its real time on D3D 9 hardware.

    If you are going to knock any eroge company for innovation, its certainly not 0verflow.

    Go back to posting the pics you find on futabachannel and retranslating blogs you weaboo.

    The first time I have been called such, which rather shows the ignorance of the unfortunate Overflow fan.

    To be honest, I would rather have them delaying the release day than putting out a buggy products. Not exactly happy at the situation but I really don't want to download another huge ass patch to be able to play the freaking game.

    PS: They really should start coming up with new ideas, the School Days franchise is getting repetitive...

    If they changed it, it would just be some other eroge. If I wanted that... I would just go play some other eroge.

    Why would every franchise need to do everything? That is why there are different franchises.

    Ok, maybe I should have rephrased better. It's not that I don't like the School Days franchise. But I really think 0verflow should look into something else, surprise me with a release that is not "(Insert random word) Days". Alicesoft is a successful eroge company because they really think outside the box and they don't confine themselves with one idea. Ever since School Days became such a smash hit, 0verflow just kept cashing in with the franchise without coming up with new games. Unfortunately I think their success is actually smothering their creativity. While I laud their business strategy(well, making money is a good thing, can't argue with that), I really hoping they take more liberty in product development and bring us some more exciting games in the future.

    Thank you! Softhouse Chara happens to be one of my favorite eroge companies(along with Eushully and Alicesoft, sometimes Giga too). Getting my hands full with BALDR SKY Dive1 at the moment. But I will be sure to check out Daisounan as well.

    I recommend Softhouse Chara to you if you want high playability. Their recent(as in last week) game was Daisounan
