Quick Updates on Status

Mom had her surgery today.
Surprisingly, she is home already. A decision was made at the last minute to scale this back to be a an exploratory surgery for another round of biopsies so this was not the huge surgery that we feared. OTOH it will probably be the first of several.
She started throwing up a bit ago, so I've called into work and am standing by. However, other than that she seems to be doing very good.

An Update

There is a fairly substantial update to the post about that abominably abominable abomination which is mercifully buried far from unsuspecting eyes here. Or you can cut out the middle man and go here.


I'm gonna be appalled either way aren't I?

Cringe Worthieness

Some months ago I blogged about various visions of vileness I'd encountered, one of which was an alleged H-Game that caused much well deserved horror. I was unsure it was not an elaborate leg-pull but they had a dev blog and seemed to be semi legit. I eventually forgot about it....until a few weeks ago when I encountered this wallpaper that looked cute...but odd somehow.

I looked it up and belatedly realized I'd returned to the dev-blog for THAT game. Not only was it still a going concern they were about to release a demo of the disability girl game.....Oh the horror....
....or perhaps not.....
You see looking at the blog to see if this was indeed real I noted that the focus has changed. It appears that this has recently become a straight 'dating sim' rather than a porn game which makes it less worisome for some reason. Also several more or less normal characters have been added as well as at least one other guy with..."issues" (a hikokimori).

The characters are all interesting interesting on the face of it and I don't quite get the same creepy ass vibe I got from it the first time. Last night around 4 AM I took a break from my paper and perused the 4th level of the Chan's where it was announced that the demo has been released.

I don't do dating sims and I don't have time right now to look at this if I did. Fortunately I keep an EBP (emergency backup pervert) on retainer who is all about dating sims and their kin so I sent it his way. Hopefully a review will be forthcoming. It will be interesting to see if they can avoid having this this be  creepy, exploitative or insulting.

UPDATE: The EBP came through with a thoughtful and tasteful review.
Go read the whole thing.
 I agree with most of his points, particularly the idea that the inclusion of am "H-Option" in the game is very unfortunate. Dating sims are not my cup of tea but I actually played through this thing a bit and the characters realy are quite engaging and likable.  The designers did a fine job making the characters engaging, interesting people. Rin in particular is well realized with her dry wit. The designers deserve a good deal of credit for their characterizations here. Tiberius sums it up the whole thing very well in a comment at Wonderducks place:
Waaay back when I first saw "that picture" it was the first time I ever really felt ashamed of my anime hobby.  Now, mirabile dictu, I've been surprised by human nature, in a good way, no less.  What I've seen of this so far is not too bad.  I shant blither on and pre-empt your review, but I would like to contribute this:  by about half-way through this demo version, I didn't give any thought to the girls' conditions at all; I wanted to know more about them and where the story was headed.  That's good story telling.


Indeed...
And we should probably  never speak of this again.

How?

How does one deliberately cut ones head off with a chainsaw?
If he'd been juggling a couple then I could see it but this...

How?

Most Awfulest Merchandising Idea EVAH!

Murdoc's other blog Gunpundit, is generally worth a read. Be advised that eye and soul protection are hardly ever required because stuff like this almost never happens over there.





Yes Mr. toy designer....we mean you.
