Why is it that every single /hiki/ thread that asks for people's life story gets like a hundred replies? There's like one hundred separate life stories on all of them. Who the fuck even are these people? Where are they? Are they real? Are they all just the same guy? What the fuck is going on, huh? Am I just dreaming all of this up? I never see these phantom, ghost, people anomalies responding to anything else. It. Doesn't. Make. Any. Sense.
It's painful

It's all me. I am seisatsu, presul, booger, and every single user out there. You caught me, nothing is real. I only run this website to keep away my ghosts and loneliness away. For years I've posted almost every single paragraph on every single board (and that's the reason most of them seem so dead, since I've ran out of ideas of what I could post), with the exception of occasional lurkers and posters like you; my lovely, lovely customers.
I've raised /n/ and thrown it down. I've built /hikki/ and soon it will fall. Just like societies can't run forever, I decided that the board who represents the most the teeny, angsty, most basic human feelings would be the most appropriate to represent societies and their destiny. And thus I've running this experiment for years and years, waiting and waiting on thousand of endless nights where a mix of alcohol and coffee kept me awake in the midst of sorrowful shadows surrounding the bright blue light of my monitor, as I lurked behind every post.
I've organized countless raids and dramafests here, and I was every single party involved on them. We never discussed with the spanish forum, it was actually all my doing. We never had problems with the moderation staff, because there was none other than me. And all those replies you see running fast on threads is just me using three computers at the same time to create the illusion of activity. I remember them all, after all I was everyone. I was none in particular, just everyone at the same time. Through my acts, I've transcended humanity and their hopeless dilemmas and drifted away towards a completely new system of psyches. I discarded my emotions and personality and now I am the central core of a world full of voices; my voices. I am the director, I play all the fugues. The stage is mine, and I am the person who also controls the lights.

Welcome to my play, I hope you enjoy your stay.


ok bro thats cool and all but actually i make all the posts here

How much would you be willing to give up, or what would you be willing to do to get Kikiyama back?


The only way for kiki to come back would be something akin to finding the dragon balls and wishing he comes from the world of the dead, because he's dead as fuck.

>tfw we will never know if kikiyama is dead or not
I really hope Kiki comes back and basically makes the HL2 equivalent of a sequel for Yume Nikki. I can only hope.

The SNES classic launches tomorrow, who here is looking forward to it, what games are you planning to play first? I'll be camping outside Best Buy the following morning, if you happen to be going to the same store as me maybe we can talk to pass the time before the store opens, I'm going to the Best Buy in Santa Rosa California, hope to see you there.

Op explains it perfectly. As long as there's idiots who'll buy it, they'll keep selling it. Why not?


This is console nonsense merely reaching it's logical conclusion. Nintendo could have easily just released their games on the PC and other modern consoles, like Sega does while also allowing companies to make Genesis clones for those who want "authentic hardware" and without the artificial shortages to boot, but Nintendo wants to control everything.

To be fair to Nintendo, I could understand a console that can be very difficult to emulate well, like the N64 and I can see the appeal to someone who has no interest in PC emulators or even modding a PSP or 3DS but when it comes down to it, people have very little interest in emulators and nostalgia is the in thing now. I mean dude, Nickelodeon had that whole "90s are all that" block and they are making movies out of classics like Rocko's Modern Life and Hey Arnold!. Disney is shitting out remakes out of good classics too.


I get that nostalgia is "in" but what I don't get is why buy a shitty emubox over the generally cheaper real deal? TVs still have good ol' RCA jacks.


You made me check my own tv to see if it had RCA input, I had a little chuckle over that one.

But, while the SNES Classic is a stupid product, it technically is a very good deal. I remembered reading that Earthbound is on that thing and if someone really wants to play Earthbound on real (or just Nintendo sanctioned) hardware, unless he/she is cool with buying a repro cart that game alone is over a hundred bucks. And that is not counting actually getting the actual console. And that's not factoring in the fact if you get a legit cart of the game, is the average person gonna do maintenance like replacing the save battery?

I'm actually cool with Nintendo making emulator boxes, although I wouldn't buy them myself unless it's for a very hard to emulate console. Because there does seem to be a good sized market for people who want their old games but don't want to emulate on their PC or phone but don't want to buy a 3DS or Wii for VC games.

My main personal beef with Nintendo on this product is the clearly intentional shortages of it. Obviously, Nintendo won't do the sensible thing and just release their games on PC or other, more popular consoles so the least they could do make the emuboxes more accessible for those who would buy it. I mean, Sega does it fine with no issues and gives you more games too.

Like I said, console nonsense taken to it's logical conclusion.


I never understood why people are so obsessed with nintendo.

If instead of all of the text that you have ever read on the internet, you read books, how many books do you think you would be at by now?

Hi uboachan!

I'm here to test your personal values (these should be quirky). So I bring you a test.

But not a fake-ass personality test that tells you what colour your nail polish should be - a real very scientific very complex magic research instrument that will stare deep into your soul.

You get a personalized report about your basic values and reference values based on your peer's data.

I get your anonymous data to fiddle with and check an idea that I nurtured for almost ten years.

Here's the link: unipark.de/uc/personalvalues

If you're interested in who I am and what I do, shoot me an email at personalvaluesandattitudes@gmail.com

>real very scientific very complex magic research instrument

Are you also a millionaire and a business owner and a published author and world traveler ??? pls anser




Literally just a personality test that's geared toward classifying individual ethical and moral values. Probably a sociology student.


Took the test. Almost every value was average. That's kind of depressing.


Far below average on everything…
Values are for schmucks though so whatever.

See if you can translate any of the posts. It would be much appreciated.


This includes the OP, right?


All of this is so weird, this was over a decade and a half ago


It actually is 9/11 today, so I think this thread deserves a bump. I'm still hoping that somebody will be interested in translating these posts. It's one of the few online records of people outside of Americas reaction to it in real time. There's no thread online talking about the fall of the Berlin wall hours after it actually happened.


>I'm still hoping that somebody will be interested in translating these posts
Too long, and most of them are just general "Omg what's happening???!'1". Just use google.

Does anyone know the Youtuber "fdjkkdjf"? He's been playing YN fangames for a while now, most notably a 7-year-long playthrough of Yume 2kki exploring almost everything that game has to offer that's still going strong as the game is updated. There's also videos of .flow, Middens, Me, Someday, Fleshchild and he did a fantastic guided tour of Yume Nikki. Just… don't expect him to always finish the games he plays. Particularly .flow, which he's left unfinished just before the ending

Lately, he's been doing weekly "fangame bingo" livestreams where he plays random games from the ynfg wiki and they're a really good time even if you don't catch them live

If you want to give him a shot I'd recommend his Yume Nikki Retrospective series, but for the madmen out there you could dig into his currently 118-episode Let's Play Yume 2kki like I did. It's a journey, that's for sure


I watch him often! He's a cool guy.

I do. That scottish guy is pretty comf to watch and I sometimes leave his 2kki playlist on the background when I'm doing other stuff. Wish I could catch the fangame bingo livestreams often, timezones really makes it hard for me.

Crossposting from Lainchan (https://lainchan.org/r/res/3260.html#3260). I've been wanting to compile a large variety of "eye-opening" media, and then to organize it by increasing gradation.

For me, there was much media that helped me to see things as I do now, to question things, be wary of the government, and see the various flaws in society. Anything that encourages free thought or distrust in assumptions/governments is what I am aiming for.

My idea is to organize it in such a way that a "program" can be made of it to introduce to people to help them to "wake up". Intro-tier would have to be "accessible" enough as not to cause any conditioned aversion toward it, and to gradually increase the concepts as you move higher on the list.

As far as the media medium itself, music and movies are better introductions than interactive media or books/podcasts.

Here's a sample of my current, unorganized list:


>The Matrix (and sequels?)


Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Don't put the Matrix sequels and don't out in Avatar. The first reason for this being 1, the message is less effective if you put shit and the second is 2, Avatar doesn't even have that much to do with what you're talking about. Avatar is just another shitty, spectacle film filled with clichés and a heavy-handed message. The blue aliens look as cute and friendly and pet like as possible(to make them more sympathetic) while still being sexually attractive(to give them appeal to those types of people) and the cliché evil military guy. Watch mr.plinkett's review of it. Also, while welcome to the NHK is very good, it also has little to do with your message. Just having themes involving conspiracy doesn't make it about how you shouldn't trust the government. NHK was more about personal growth and how some people like to spin some kind of complicated story to explain the bad things in their life because they don't want to believe that it's either their fault or just coincidence. If anything, adding this show would subtract from your message because it would tell people that instead of deluding themselves into thinking that somebody else is out to ruin their lives, they should take things into their own hands. Frankly, I don't really agree with your base message. The government being shitty is just a reflection of how shitty people are. The government is nothing more than a bunch of self-serving people who either try to make a living or try to gain as much power as possible. Mixed in, there actually are a few people with good intentions. There is no grand plot. Everything bad the government does is just the culmination of a lot of selfish people's decisions. If anything, businesses are much, much more conspiratorial. I don't know why you put NGE. You might want to add something by Isaac Asimov. Good Fellas actually wouldn't be too bad of a choice either because it shows how easily the system can be manipulated by criminals. It's based on a true story too which gives it more weight. By the way, the only people who will see your collection are people who already agree with you. You're just adding another voice to the echo chamber.


The first season of psycho-pass would be good for the anime section.


>don't out in Avatar
I think you're definitely right on this. I just wanted to see what others thought. It has very vague military distrust, but I think it's too overpowered to be really effective, except maybe as intro-tier (but even then).

>welcome to the NHK is very good, it also has little to do with your message

It kinda points out flaws in thought and emotional traps and things. I think by learning to recognize these, you also learn to question your already-held beliefs. Although, this:

>would subtract from your message because it would tell people that instead of deluding themselves into thinking that somebody else is out to ruin their lives, they should take things into their own hands

I feel is quite true. Actually potentially detrimental to the intent.

>There is no grand plot

Even so, I feel the effect is just the same, and as well with wakening to it.

>I don't know why you put NGE

I feel it encourages empathy and seeing things through varying perspectives, which I feel is very important. I realize my OP is kinda vague, though I also intend to cause personal growth with the completed program, as I feel they help with the overarching intent.

How? I always see people saying things like 'I only have online friends', but I have never knowingly spoke to the same person twice, let alone befriend them. It especially bamboozles me how people can make friends in sites without identities, which encompasses most of the places I go.

Just to be clear, I'm not asking for friends here as I don't think I'm capable or worthy at the present time, but for when I am I want to know where to start.

Well, used to be a name on this board, but not anymore.
For the most part people meet here and then meet up on other platforms like Discord or Skype. Online friends mostly just hang out or play games together, that's about it.


If a person doesn't want you for your knowledge or skills, then they will enjoy your company for the mutual pleasure of talking to eachother. Humans like to talk to eachother and bark noises into each other's ears. It's validating.

Nothing wrong with friendship founded on a transactional basis, because that's all there really is to human relationships.

Someone who puts as much effort into my life as I put into theirs.

e.g. I will offer to help someone move, then when I need to move, he offers without me asking.

Or, say I bring food into work one week for everyone. Then again in another month. Then a coworker asks when the next time food is coming in, instead of bringing some in himself. It shows self-centeredness, which is not a quality of a good friend.

That's the real difference - most people will do something if you ask them to because they are taught to help people/be nice, etc. However, that is the only reason many people do those things. When they do those things without prompting and not just because they want to avoid saying "no" to somebody who is asking for help, I consider them actual friends.


Not OP by the way.


get out

Most online friends you meet are just there to play games with you most of the time. The way to go from "online friend" to "actual friend" is when the person regularly starts hitting you up to play with them all the time or just sit down and talk to you.
It's weird, because it's just like a business relationship/talking to your co-workers.
