Discussion in 'Completed/Abandoned LPs' started by Faust, Sep 20, 2012.
This only confirm that prota-chan is a big Mary Sue *sigh* it's disappointing.
Beethoven was quite rude to people, though XD (Although maybe it was because he was angry about being deaf).
As for me, I would be unable to pick anybody but Chopin and Debussy, especially if their works were playing as bgm when you meet them.
Too bad my music and composer's history knowledge is scarce, or I would seriously condsider to write an otome game about them XD (I would date Bach of course :P)
I want to romance Chopin-san~~
Because baby got Bach.
... sorry >_<
Is ok I still like you... Forever.
If only because of Amadeus and Mozart l'Opera Rock
And the dude wrote a canon titled "Lick my ass"
This would be the perfect game for Kyousuke.
Sorry If I haven't update yet, I had to study for an important exam until today and I failed ahaha, now I want to leave the University and be a NEET and forget everything, this means I'll play videogames a lot... since they're the only thing I'm good at >_>
So expect the LP to continue soon.
If it's any consolation, most statistics I've seen indicates universities are EXCELLENT at making people feel stupider than everyone else. That said I've failed an exam before and it was around the suckiest feeling I ever had. I knew it was a risk because I wasn't particularly good at the subject, but to actually see a failing mark was horrible. It worked out okay when I tried to retake it, though. I think everyone tries a failed exam at least once in their life and as long as it's a failure to learn from, it's not a complete waste.
The problem is that I'm near the end of my Univeristy course, with 4 exams left after 7 years, and I'm realizing that I'm sick of studying, failing this exam is a sign of this. I'm not even interested that much in the subejects anymore >_> I just want to get a fucking job and be indipendent, but I don't have any skill and I suck at dealing with people, so which kind of job could I do?
This song is so true for my life in this moment:
Sorry for ranting, but I really needed to take these things out of my chest >_>
Actually, that's just how I feel, except it's 3 exams remaining. And a minor Master Thesis. And then probably unemployment because you can't get a job in this economy unless you had a job before. And most of what I'm good at is kind of hard to prove in an application.
I still find what I read interesting, but then I pick my seminaries out of 'what do I want to learn' and not 'what might get me a job'.
Just would like to share I'm sort of in the same boat. I haven't even got to my exam yet but I'm definitely going to fail that one subject so I have to redo it, this is going to be annoying when I attempt to find a job and the impact it has on my overall marks. ffff. Though for me, I'm just not that great at this subject and personal issues (which is a shitty excuse but whatever) and just general demotivation.
If you can, just get a part time job while you figure things out? Getting that right job is difficult and stressful.
I picked my major on what might get me a job which is just against what everyone advice. :P I want to learn about sociology and psychology and artsy stuff. I have no artistic talent so I didn't do that and I want to learn about and I want to do work (uni homework) doesn't really coincide with each other. So I just opt to learn about subjects that interest me via, well reading books. I tend to skip my lectures and just read textbooks anyway.
We could create a club :P At least is something, knowing that I'm not the only one feeling like this. I should go and re-read Honey & clover, I can relate now with Takemoto much better since what I'm going through.
(Oh and apparently scared of my negativity youtube commited suicide right after I posted the video)
As I promised, I advanced in the game, now we have 11 days to prepare to the final selection.
There's a new location available (forget to take a picture of the map), a place with a lot of stairs, I don't know what is supposed to be °° But it's there that we find Tsuchiura:
He says something about being rival
Tsuchiura: "Oh wait a second, I have to take this (I think)" You hear a sound of footsteps.
He is talking to the phone with someone, I guess O_o
Tsuchiura: "Well, don't mind that"
Tsuchiura: "Oh ehi, you know..." and then ask something.
Tsuchiura: "Oh right, after all we are rivals..." (he proposed to "practice" together, maybe? XD)
Tsuchiura: "Oh don't worry. Talking about that with me must be a problem, it's ok" (So I guess he asked which song are we planning to take to the selection?)
The choices are: It's no a problem, It's a secret, Change the subject
I don't have secrets for you, Tsuchiura (well, except the magic violin maybe) so it's not a problem of course~
Tsuchiura: "I see, then that's good. I'm happy" and then something. I foresee a another wet dream about Tsuchiura in the next days~
Tsuchiura: "I feel weird and I'm acting like a stupid" I think? Well Tsuchiura, that's because you're in love <3
Tsuchiura: "Nevermind, bye!"
And after an afternoon spent catching fata (yes, even with a normal violin I still have to catch the fairies to get manuscripts and arrangements) I go back to Tsuchiura:
No voiced of course, so I don't know what he's saying...
Awwww, finally he's asking us if he can call us with our nickname!! <333
He literally says "Oboe... do you like this nickname?" (so in game he is the one picking the nickname even if we choose it at the beginning... oh well)
The choices are: It's ok, I prefer being called by name, or Refuse
And of course I'm ok with it, now I'm Oboe-chan for you too <3
Back at home, the phone starts ringing:
Tsuchiura: "hello, is this... Oboe?"
Tsuchiura: "Sorry to bother, I want to talk about something (?) ... Well..."
Yesssss? Are you ready to confess? *___*
Oh right, of course he wants to talk about the concour... -__-
Tsuchiura: "You know... I'm happy I joined the concour"
Woah, another Tsuchiura's CG *___* He could change his clothes sometimes, though...
If I got it right. he says something about how he likes me and thanks to me he started to like music again °_° That's basically a confession *___*
Tsuchiura: "Sorry if I'm saying weird things... well, bye"
And so the days end.
Well, three Tsuchiura events in one day, that's something. I wonder if the next days will be so full of events too. But for today that's all.
Is it just me, or do his hands look ridiculous?
I can empathize, Faust. And ranting here is fine since a lot of us (including me -.- ) have felt that pain. Feel better soon?
Well yeah I feel better this days but the problem still remains...
Anyway now that you make me notice is hand are kinda bigger than his head in the last CG O_o
Oh and I wish to go on with the game, but the friend that translates the choices for me is away until the end of the week, so it's no point to keep going completely blind >>
-- Is this the part where Tsuchiura confesses that he's gay and the game suddenly switches to his point of view as it becomes a yaoi game?
That would be awesome XD I can already imagine the title switch "Tsuchiura and the search for the golden uke" (because of course he is a seme u__u)
I approve of that new avatar muchly.
My first thought was yaoi hands.
I'm only in high school so I can only listen, err read, but feel free to rant. It helps actually forming things into words to get rid of the feeling.
Soooo, let's go back listening to a bit of classical music. These days are somewhat uneventuful, but here's what happened shortly:
This is the total location available when there's weekend, finding Tsuchiura was a pain in the ass.
Another automatic events with Azuma and Hihara... these two forms a nice yaoi couple, with Azuma being the yandere seme that's into weird fetishes.
WHAT! Tsuchiura, are you ditching me for Tsukimori??? ... In that case can I stalker you guys?
And then even Shinobu came, this is transforming into a threesome!
Shinobu "I wonder if I can take two at the same time..." (Sorry, I feel creative today)
When the school start again, Lili appears to give me an "omamori", a lucky charm. Nothing that influenced the game, though.
While Tsuchiura is ignoring me, another automatic event happens:
These two would make a cute couple.
Oh finally the next day Tsuchiura remembers me and came to pick me up to school.
He also asks me something and I select "Accept" without knowing what is about, hopefully I didn't sell my soul to him.
Oh and finally after a lot of practice and running around the various location, I catched all the last fairy of the game!
Lili rewards me with some kind of "proof of friendship", but I don't think it has any use in-game.
And after practicing next to Tsuchiura and raising his rivalry, Lili appears again:
He start talking about what happened 25 years ago, about two concour partecipants that fell in love because of the "violin romance" and the song "Ai no aisatsu", and some miracle that happened.
Lili: "I have faith in you and I trust that the miracle will happen to you too"
And I can choose between "I'll do my best" and "It's impossible"
I don't really think these choices matter, but I chose the first one. Lili then says "Good luck" and then goes away finally.
That's all for today.
Oh and I think I never showed you the general panel of the affection ranking, where I can see who loves me the most:
As you can see Tsuchiura is really high in the rank and... SENSEI, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY FRIEND AMOU, THAT'S INAPPROPRIATE! And Azuma to Hihara too! Shees....
This has been a good morning for me. Flonne getting kissed by J Akira in Quartz thread (my condolences), ninjas with no heed nor care for Para's personal space, and now Sensei here. Alas.
Ah, the return of the 'yaoi hands'. It must be hard to draw anime-style characters in such a way that their anatomy isn't jarring/ creepy, don'tcha think?. The art here isn't terribad though. In any case, slightly shoddy art is all part of the amusing charm of dating games/ visual novels. Not to mention it increases your appreciation of the ones with pretty art (like Hakuouki for example).
Oboe keep having dreams of Tsuchiura (while I just had a nightmare this night ahaha, I envy you Oboe)
Then at school, while I'm walking through the entrance this happens:
Lili appears together with some of the fairy...
And he congratulates with me for catching all the fata! I thought I already got the proof of friendship, but apparently is this one.
The CG is actually good:
Those fatas are actually cute~
With Tsuchiura nothing very special happens, just him talking to me after school or picking me up at home.
But then, since I keep practice my pieces near him, I see his rivalry points skyrockets in a few days °__°
And I reach 1000 rivalry! I should be happy, but I'm sure I won't still be able to get his perfect ending, according to the walkthrough you have to see all the special events during each selections, and I think I missed some of them... he was supposed to ask me on a date on the weekend and he didn't :(
Flashforward to the last day before the fourth selection: I keep practicing near Tsuchiura and this happens:
This event is finally voiced, but I don't really get what he's saying... something about how good I've become during the concour I think.
Tsuchiura: "You're emotions are pretty intense and your fighting spirit is roaring, you're not the type that like losing"
But Tsuchiura, weren't you supposed to like sad/depressed girls? °° Oh well.
The choices are Agree or Keep silent, and I choose the first one.
He's happy for my answer apparently.
Woah another Tsuchiura CG... not bad.
So, Oboe-chan finally goes home, tomorrow will be a very important day~
I want to show you how the save state looks like now:
Tsuchiura and Oboe are walking towards each other while Amou looks at them... it seems like a typical love triangle drama :°°° Amou, are you the Eponine of this situation? :P
Now, I'm going to update with the end of the game tomorrow, but for now I'll show you the new pieces I have acquired during this last selection:
6 new pieces! I'm taking to the selection the last one, the Hungarian Dance no. 2 of Brahms. The other five are:
Berceuse, by Fauré (in the game is called "Lullaby"):
Campanella, by Paganini (yeah maybe I should have prepared this one since it's connected to Tsuchiura, but the skill required were crazy °°):
The second of 3 Romances, by Schumann:
Romance for violin and orchestra no. 1, by Beethoven:
Cantabile, by Paganini:
Waitawhat? Eponine gets into a jealous tussle? With Cosette? (I remember this part in a song with lovestruck guy mentioning her name) Oh boy.
/just finished Fantine section
Well, my knowledge is based on the musical only, and Eponine has an unrequired love for Marius, while Marius and Cosette are in love with each other XD You're right, in this situation Amou is actually interested in Oboe, so it doesn't fit very well, sorry :°
No, I was just surprised that Eponine had a part. I haven't gotten to that section in the book yet.
Sorry for the spoiler then :°
Are you me? Or future me in a year? I'm already sick of studying already and screwing up on exams, so maybe not...
EDIT: How do people drag themselves away from romancing 2D guys? I try, but every time I do, I just wind up opening Joker no Kuni or my DS for Tokimeki/Love Revo...I'm falling behind on my work :/ I guess this sounds immature and I'm at the age where I should know better but...a 2D harem is more attractive than people think.
In general the musical is very, very faithful to the book. Most of what takes a cut is Marius' plot which is boiled down to Is In Love With Cosette. Éponine will have been in the book already, granted. She's the daughter of the innkeepers Fantina entrusted Cosette to.
/Les Mis rant.
There are some nice pieces in there. I especially like the Cantibile, it's so pretty :D
Do you think the game still gives you a good ending even if you don't get all the events/CGs? It's frustrating when these games give you a forever alone ending when you made one little mistake...
I think I should be able to get a "date ending" with Tsuchiura, but it won't have any animated scene or CG probably :/
Are all dating games this picky, or is it just I am comparing this to Love Revo which is also unforgiving as hell?
ooooh I loved this show and I downloaded the game and everything but I couldn't get the translator program to work for it at all so I couldn't play ;~;
Some are more forgiving than others, but there are plenty that are extremely picky and will give you a forever alone ending if you make just one wrong conversation choice. It makes it a lot more rewarding when you do pick the right choices, but it bugs me when the choices they give you are unintuitive or make absolutely no sense. For example, having two of the choices look exactly the same except for the phrasing (which can sometimes be a case of the original meaning being lost in translation).
Yeah, dating sims like TMGS are much more forgiving, while games that are VN-like are extremely picky... the thing I don't get here is that I stalked Tsuchura and talked to him multiple times every day, so how could I miss an event? Maybe the game requires that I reach a certain point of affection or rivalry before certain dates to be able to see some scenes...
For example I know that with Tsuchiura you were supposed to have some scenes regarding his ex-girlfriend, but I didn't get them.
So, here we are for the final selection and the end of the game!
Oboe kept dreaming about Tsuchiura even the night before the selection... but I don't have any more time to practice arrangements anyway.
Then, at the teather, we find a real Tsuchiura to greet us:
Something about feeling lonely when this concour will end, I think. He then wishes us good luck and goes inside.
Afterwards, it's the turn of Lili:
He gives us the golden string of the broken magic violin, I think... maybe as a lucky charm.
And this is the program of the selection, I'm the last one as usual now.
1- Azuma Yunoki
He plays Polonaise, composed by Bach:
2- Hihara Kazuki
He plays Trumpet Voluntary, by Clarke:
3- Tsuchiura Ryotaro
Of course he plays La Campanella, but I'm confused now about the author: it was composed by Paganini and Liszt together? Anyway it's a beautiful piece *____*
4- Tsukimori Len
He plays a very complicated piece, Zigeunerweisen composed by Sarasate:
5- Shimizu Keiichi
This time you disappointed me, Shimizu. I don't like your piece too much :P
It's The Lark, a gypsy piece composed by Dinicu:
6- Fuyuumi Shouko
Thankfully I didn't choose this piece, that it was also among my options: it's the Romance no. 2 of Schumann.
7- Bach La Oboe
I choose to play the Hungarian Dance no. 2, composed by Brahms:
And the winner of this final selection is...
Woah, Tsuchiura actually won this selection. I agree though, his perfomance was beautiful :°°°
I came second and I didn't stand a chance to be first this time.
But this was just the selection... who's gonna be the final victor of the concour????
A small pause to make hype :P
