2021.12.04 11:03 NeronImperator Your Thoughts on Hashihime's Ending
Hello everyone~ I just finished Hashihime (uncensored PC version) and really enjoyed the game! First of all, I'm a big fan of mystery/time loops visual novel and of Taisho era litterature so this one was right up my alley. The art and writing were amazing! However, I was disappointed by the last route and lost almost all emotional involvement by the time I got to the sex scene (where Tamamori turned back into his young-ish self just as I was thinking "Well, at least it'll be nice to see a Shopkeeper-like Tamamori all messed up...")
I'll still absolutely recommend the game to my VN-loving friends since I adored the first and second route. Quite a few times I was moved almost to tears. Both Minakami's connection to Madam (and by extension queer culture of the era), and Kawase being eventually able to see the Frog Man since he's become Tamamori's "Partner in crime" were moments where I was genuinely thrilled! I admired how the game managed to fuse cleverness and emotion in its narrative. Stand out points also include the dynamics between the characters and Tamamori's efforts to understand his friends' own sense of reality, which I thought tied nicely into his need for experience as a writer.
The game was also really good at subverting my expectations and providing impactful "twists". And that's where my problem with the last route comes from. I felt the other twists worked precisely because I was so invested in the characters and Tamamori's relationship with them. When the light came back on and Tamamori was alone I thought "Oh no. There goes my happy True End." and I expected the weight of tragedy to crush me like it did during Minakami's confession-suicide... But it never really did. Everything just became meaningless and not even in a nihilistic way.
I was so frustrated with the ending I spent a long time thinking about why it felt wrong to me. I won't drown you in the details, but in essence I thought both "Tamamori's denial of reality" and "Everything was Tamamori's illusion" were the weak points. Neither of these points were even remotely emotionally impactful after the Big Reveal. Tamamori, apart from his connection to his "son", seemed to lead a rather normal and well-adjusted life, and after the sex scene even said he was able to move on. It felt cheap. All the characters I'd come to love and empathize with were replaced by nothing. I saw on Steam discussions that the "True End" was so widely disliked ADELTA eventually said the real "True End" was Minakami's route and the 5th route just a "What if?" scenario.
I'd like to hear your thoughts about the ending and how you think a True End to Hashihime could work. Personally, I thought of two things that would have given more weight to the "Open your eyes and face reality" ending. One would be emphasizing Tamamori's survivor guilt and tying it to the Shopkeeper. The Shopkeeper could have been another illusion, a manifestation of Tamamori's feeling that he was somehow responsible for his friends' deaths. I don't think the Shopkeeper character is compatible with a "End the Illusions" ending, he's to much of a God-like figure. Because in-story the Shopkeeper himself was a compelling tragic and cruel character, by comparison Real World-Tamamori ends up looking like a cheap knock-off. So, make Real World-Tamamori an emotional wreck desperately using his illusions to keep his beloved friends by his side.
Which brings us to his friends. I'd really love to see how Tamamori built his friends' imagined future selves. It would be interesting, and appropriately tragic, to see him deliberately choosing to interact exclusively with people who could become good material for his friends, and discard them once he is done. Tamamori's leeching off real people's emotions in order to give his beloved illusions more substance would tie nicely into his self-serving character and his ability to ignore everything except what he's writing. Also, I don't buy for one second that sexual experience with his son would give him the ability to imagine Minakami, Kawase and Hakase's sex scenes. Maybe Tamamori could be someone who seek sexual relationships with other men in order to perfect his ideal "Pure Friendship" with his childhood friends. After all, Tamamori's a great protagonist with a lot of potential for casual cruelty. On that note, if The Man in the Noh Mask needs to be his true love interest, then let's make him his editor or something. The only one who has enough emotional edurance (borderline martyrdom) to stay by his side, and is rewarded by litteral demonification.
Sorry for the lengthy post 😅 I'm looking forward to your own suggestions and thoughts on the ending to this fantastic game💖 (Apologies to everyone who replied to the 1st post, I've reposted without the spoilery title)

2021.12.04 11:03 Taqwacore My Quest 2 is going on a holiday without me and I don't know when it'll be back.
My right controller died today after having only bought my Quest 2 around 3 weeks ago. I spoke with the Oculus support people and they were great. They agreed to send me a new controller because my Quest is still covered by the warranty. Cool! Only...not cool :-(
I live in Malaysia and there's no local support for the Oculus Quest 2. And apparently that means that they can't send me a replacement controller. And because Oculus/Facebook/Meta...whatever you want to call them...don't sell in Malaysia, I had to buy from a reseller. Resellers don't have to honor factory warranties. Thankfully, at the time of purchase, the seller was also selling warranties, so an extra RM100 for 90 days warranty, which I bought. Yay! Only...not yay :-(
I have to send then entire Oculus Quest 2 system back to the reseller, who is apparently planning to send it to a service center in Japan (or so he says), where is support for the Quest. So how long is this going to take? I don't know, but I'm going to be lost without my Beat Sabre. I had the 12th highest score in the country (not bad for a 50'something year old, but probably not too hard in a country where there isn't any official support for the Quest).

2021.12.04 11:03 gintas59 Viking Conquest question about the 'lore'.
On Viking Conquest loading screens you can see a text in the top right corner. It says something along the lines of: Lore#3: *and then some text*. I was wondering where these texts were in the game files. Where are these texts located?
