I'm definitely the most interested in Heaven's Feel (after spoiling myself to its beginning in the first translated scenes while finishing my UBW scene collection), but I deffo also care about the other projects *raises hand*. Don't know at all how good they are but I presume they have something going for them since they're being worked on out of the gazillion games out there, anyway the more visual novels get translated the better. Can also wait for a good thing ^^.

Agreed. Ever17 is indeed a must when it comes to playing visual novels. Biggest reason would be #3 there.

^I thought the same, but the very thought of it being real is so amazing that my brain blocked that in order to not explode of joy. He wrote Elifn... maybe it's another thing :lol: ?

Ever17 was released officially in English, I believe,

Not sure about Elfin Lied.

If someone can confirm anything of this "Elfin"/Elfen Lied game, you'll be getting a juicy reward of 100,000 internets from me. If it is announced by tomorrow you'll get 450 bread socks too!

Oooooh lists. I like lists.

1. Xenogears
2. Final Fantasy Tactics
3. Final Fantasy VII
4. ???

Those are the only games I've played with characters and plots that are undeniably epic.

My main beef with Nasu's visual novel works is that it seems he either subconsciously can't or just doesn't want to walk away from the platform's high school romance roots. I find Nasuverse mythos to be extremely interesting, I don't find his typical high school manga/anime dramatic tropes to the appealing or even necessary at all. Example:

WTF? The day that one of Nasu's works doesn't have his main character going to high school is the day that he gets that fourth spot. Hopefully. (C'mon Tsukihime 2 with Shiki running around Europe!)

Clannad (the visual novel) was a huge disappointment. The game was supposed to be largely about family (thus the title) but it turned out to be more about inane high school shenanigans and romances.
