Hopefully the right place to put this, but looking for a couple people to help play-test an upcoming game.

Best way I can describe it as a cross between LSD and Dreaming Mary. It all seems very randomy but does have an overarching horror element exposed late-game that ties it together. Very heavy exploration based with levels that change themselves as you progress.

Does require a decent gaming rig, and fully supports local CO-OP. The game is finished besides any last minute bug-fixes or additional hints as needed.

If you want to believe it's worthwhile, please consider that this chan might have just been paid for, and will continue to be so, at least until Sei or Writer decides to pull the plug.

It's gonna happen, guys.


It depends on its users, Ubuu's history is being slowly documented in the wiki too.

How is your japanese going? Still suffering with kanji grinding? Dealing with grammar rules? Just starting out?
Ask anything, I'll probably be the only fagget answering but something is something.

I meant to do this thread weeks ago but I was lazy to prepare a resource list and stuff. Thankfully a lainanon posted this list on /cyb/ and since I agree with most of what it says I thought about posting it here.

Start here, read it all the way down, even if it says Advanced it still won't be enough for you to understand all everyday sentences correctly

Keep going with this

Various lookup guides for grammar and such, make sure to read them through

>Although the meaning isn't really that away from what I wrote…
>In this context it's understood that the speaker isn't in first person and therefore…
I was translating it more into how I think it'd be worded in an english conversation rather than a straight blunt translation. There's so much more emphasis on context and interpretation in japanese that there ends up being quite a few ways you could translate something, though those options then narrow with more context.

>Depends on what you consider reading faster. Do you mean reading (as in, word for word inside your head) faster, or reading text faster (this may include just watching the kanji's shape and okurigana to get the tense if it's a verb, even if you don't word anything of this inside your head)?

Mostly the latter, because I'm almost completely certain the former is only a matter of reading more over time. I'm focusing on practicing more on skim reading from a combination of the shapes of the characters themselves, what context I have, general experience with japanese and specific experience with that piece of material in particular, ie. what a character is likely to say, what the author is likely to write.

Your reply there pretty much reinforced what I was thinking on this matter. I don't really have any difficulty with kanji anymore. Sometimes there's a new obscure or obsolete one I have to look up, and those are the only things I still bother adding to anki (as words when applicable), just because they can be a pain to actually look up sometimes.

>If it's the latter, that's how I read if I don't know how to pronounce kanji, it's a bit weird and probably not good but I know more meanings than readings.

I see this happen to japanese natives, too. I was watching a 実況 of Off and the translator used a bunch of obscure ones that were constantly tripping up the player.

>I recommend you to check "中上級者のため 速読日本語 Rapid Reading Japanese" by Miura Akira and Oka Mayumi, it comes with both english and japanese text, it was made to train this very thing. Note, though, that it's for advanced students (meaning you have to know already a good bunch of kanji by the time you read it).

>"masu stem"

>I mostly see them used as a "neutral" form of the て form.
Hmm… Is there any subtle difference in usage of te-form and this stem? I refuse to think that there is something completely similar.
https://japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/28513/use-of-verb-%E3%81%BE%E3%81%99-stem-when-%E3%81%A6-form-seems-possible — something I've found on the interwebs. Not too convincing thou.

I also see a lot of sentences (especially in those songs we're translating) _ending_ on stem form. Is this even legal? Or that's corrupted grammar everyone talks about? Because that means that the verbs in sentence don't have any form at all, right? I don't know… I'm confused.

For crossboard linking, use >>> (triple "greater than" symbols).


>Is there any subtle difference in usage of te-form and this stem?

The difference between 連用形 and て形 is that the former sounds more neutral/formal and is mostly used in written language to describe things in an impersonal way, such as a dictionary (i.e. a wikipedia entry).
As to why it seems to be so popular in VNs and these songs, it's probably because the stem is shorter than conjugating the て form and thus they fit better in the lyrics, and in VNs it's probably because it's easier to read.

Yes, it is legal. As I said, just think of stem verbs as being conjugated in て.

But he isn't wrong.


My point is that you don't know me and you haven't changed my mind about having a child. Your assumptions are wrong.


File: 1539715926166.jpg (69.32 KB, 850x500, __original_drawn_by_oota_y….jpg)

>you don't know me
lol, such a cliche line
>Your assumptions are wrong.
What assumptions? You said you expected your kid to make sure you weren't lonely when you're old, right? How should somebody interpret that? I wasn't even trying to convince you not to have kids. I'm just saying that they don't owe you whatever you expect them to do for you after they become independent, and you should be mindful of that.


So I just found out about this thread, and if your reason for having a child is just not wanting to be lonely at your old age, I think it is selfish just like anon says, a baby is a living thing.


No I just want someone to call so they can tell me about their day in the evening. Someone who will go for a coffee with me on a Sunday. You assumed I wanted a child to be my full-time carer and cash cow which is a huge and wild assumption and doesn't apply to me at all. Do you understand now?
>the expectation that they'll be your friend/nurse/piggy bank as an adult

Honestly it just motivates me more. My new goal is to be a better parent than yours were if you get so defensive at someone even mentioning that they want to have a child, that's scary. Idk what happened to you but not all parents are narcissistic, overbearing monsters. Mine weren't and maybe that's why I have a more positive view of raising kids.

I've noticed a very disturbing trend going on online. There seems to be a split where everywhere you go it's either a shitpost hellscape where everybody constantly bitches about Jews 24/7, or a hyper safe space full overly sensitive communists and tumblrinas. The vitriol is just so insufferable. I'm Jewish and i'm definitely not swimming in money, nor are my relatives, but I have to sit and read about how Jews are destroying the world and cause every problem in pretty much any place I go. It doesn't even make sense. Would lobbying be okay if only white people did it? Nobody acknowledges that Jews are just as much brainwashed as everybody else by modern political correctness and liberalism. Nope, Jews just want to take over the world and use everybody else as slaves. The Talmud says so and Harvey Weinstein types definitely have a copy of the Talmud on their night stand. That's why so many powerful positions of power are Jews. It's all a zionist conspiracy. Also they're actually marxists which is why they like business and banking so much. If that's the case, where's my cut? It's like stormfront is slowly leaking everywhere else. You can't even escape it on music boards. Nobody talks about music there, it's all just /pol/shit.
The only other option is in many ways worse. You constantly have to walk on eggshells and be mindful of everybody's sensibilities. This is the problem with ideology. It infects everything it touches and slowly wrings it to death. It's suffocating. The infected have their head so far up their own ass and they think they're the objective moral authority. They're the saviors and everybody else is wrong and needs to be silenced.
Is this just going to be how things are from now on? Is there any hope of things cooling down and becoming neutral again?

>However I prefer to be a rational person. I can't make myself believe something if it sounds good, but doesn't make logical sense when you break it down.

everybody thinks that they're logical and won't believe things that they can't understand.
saturn has two moons which occupy the same orbit, the could collide but never do, one moons is always traveling faster than the other, but neither moon ever overtakes and passes the other.
that sounds illogical if you haven't had orbital mechanics explained to you, but that how it works.
don't award yourself so much credit for being rational, if you're a headstrong egotistical moron then your mental condition will leave you oblivious to your own idiocy, you might be a braying ninny and not even know it. a lot of stupid people and a lot of irrationally insane people are very certain about themselves, is that the kind of people you want to affiliate yourself with?

>Morality varies depending on the person and place, but everybody thinks they're right about it.
this is extremely true


They never said they were totally sure of themselves, just that they don't believe everything presented to them right away. People should at least make an effort to be rational, even if that can't be absolute or whatever.


File: 1537055427657.jpg (84.39 KB, 650x575, 69-11.jpg)

Your own rationality is a myth that you create and only you believe in. Your version of rational behavior is based on the seemingly logical conclusions you've drawn from your experiences in life, but other people have difference experiences and different brains and they draw different conclusions. Its the most common thing in the world for some oblivious narcissistic retard to be dismissive of anyone who contradicts their point of view as irrational or crazy.
How the fuck is it rational to be spending your time posting off-topic posts in a derailed thread on the off topic imageboard of a website modeled after an east asian archipelagic animation discussion software that was started by an ex 4chon mod? What are you accomplishing here by telling two or three other people that people other than yourself are rational? Would it make a difference in any way at all if we were arguing the merits of our post numbers or making inane penis jokes instead of trying to accuse other of being mentally inferior to yourself?


Except that's not how logic works. Everything depends on context. There's no such thing as a universal logic or moral system that applies to every situation. Being rational doesn't mean basing everything on personal experience alone and saying everybody else is wrong. That's exactly what ideologues do. It means looking at the facts and analyzing the situation on a case-by-case basis. It's a mindset. You wont always end up being right, but it's still better and allows you to learn from mistakes. You're implying that nothing is irrational in any situation. As for why i'm posting on this board, within the context of me having zero free time becuase I have to study for an exam, it wouldn't be rational. If I have free time, it is because it makes more sense to do things you enjoy then.
Your perception of being a reasonable person tells me that you're probably not one. Wouldn't be suprised if you only think what other people tell you to. All of your posts so far have just been of you being a standoffish faggot.


>Except that's not how logic works
yes it is

A distant relative just died and for whatever reason you inherit their private island and the boat to get there. Only you know about this besides the guy that informed you. What do you do?


That's my dream. I've actually looked into buying islands but most near me are uninhabitable or you'd have to build your own house and that would be incredibly expensive.

I'd immediately move onto the island and start an online business so I don't have to go back to the mainland, maybe I could grow something to sell. I'd adopt a pack of dogs because I'd have the space for them, plus I'd feel safe at night knowing I'm surrounded by good boys. I'd use the boat to go back to the mainland and buy supplies every now and then. I'd grow lots of tropical fruits. Depending on how big the island is, I might build another little house on the beach and I'd go for little hikes with a packed lunch and flask. I'd probably get into painting on the beach or writing novels to both pass the time and make money. It's my absolute ideal situation.


>you'd have to build your own house and that would be incredibly expensive
You realise that prices for even the cheapest islands are in the order of millions? If you can't afford to build a house then you can't afford to buy an island.


Uh, maybe where you live. I could get one for 100k. The house would be triple that or more. So yeah, the house would cost more than the island itself.


Sell it.


>Only you know about this
Okay, well, this scenario didn't happen then. Because governments keep track of things like this.
