Love Language Japanese Year 1 Gentlemen Edition
« on: October 09, 2015, 06:59:55 pm »
Do you want to learn Japanese but hate reading textbooks and going to class? Do you like VN's? Well maybe this game is for you!

This game is still in it's VERY early development, but from what I am reading on the home page of both their website and Steam, it seems like they will have a decent game mechanic, and make it decently interactive.

I am unsure how they will balance the VN dating aspect of the game, and the educational part of the game, but considering that they are at least trying to make a game like this with some decent content for once is actually pretty amazing. Most games fall short.

As of right now, the KS isn't up yet, and I'll update you as the game develops (and tell you if it's worth it or not).

It's like if Rosetta Stone taught you phrases you might actually use!

Except that's an expensive program and it's not as fun.

Well and the lack of useful phrases. Like I can say "The girl drinks water" in Mandarin thanks to RS. I can imagine being in China and urgently needing to tell somebody that XD.

Hu, I would be a little careful with that project.

All of their art is lifted from Japanese VN developer Praline, specially from this VN (as you can see very clearly). While they have said they have permission from them, the whole thing is very sketchy at best and it can be a fraud at worst. Luckily it seems people have started investigating, so it's only a matter of time until we know.
Why can only the evil have empires, power and majestic theme music? I reclaim the possibility of creating the Federal-democratic-free Empire! A (democratic) tyranny fueled by the Power of Love!

Going to have to mirror what Marx said here.  Your lord does not approve.  The sign of someone who really wants to learn any foreign language is not just literal studying and memorizing of flash cards, grammar, and every day vocabulary, but actually immersing yourself in the culture and living a daily life with them.

Hardcore Gaming 101 did a fantastic review on why Go! Go! Nippon is an example of trying to teach Japanese gone wrong.

Indeed, I agree with you Gorby on all of this as well, BUT,

It is a good gateway into it. Getting interested in it and getting it started is what is most important. Doing it while you enjoy something is also another benefit, because later, as you learn more of it, you'll get a good feeling from it, instead of frustration while trying to understand what your Japanese teacher is saying because she has a very heavy accent... (nah, I loved my 先生.

Oh, and Gorby, I've been saving this....

You truly are great.....

It's not that people have the lack of resources. You can actually get by in Japan for quite cheap.  Your lord has found that when he really digs deep it just happens to be the innate fear of the entire premise and culture being different. It's always a shock no matter how strong-willed you are but for some it's just too much.

Yeah, some of us don't have the money at the ready to purchase the plane ticket....alone...

But I wish to go one day.

No, but chances are I fucked up on the email address. I've done it before, so I'll email them tomorrow. Gotta give them an extra day.

Is this Go-Go Nippon all over again? :P

I wish there was something like this for German. Then maybe, just maybe, I'd actually have interest in that language. But I don't, so I struggle in university.

Go-Go Nippon was just to show you Japan in general.
