Re: [1553] Oops

Granted, it could get all kinds of fun if paparazzi get the right picture of Piro and Kimiko. "Honest, it's not like that! It was toner , he was washing printer toner out of my hair!" "Ah, I see, is this a mutual fetish then, or which of you..." "NO!!!" :oops: Man, I gotta dig my "boxes" rescript o...

Re: Visual Novel [renamed]

(it is a fraud if they were used on costs other than for the project itself) Provided (as I mentioned in another thread) by cost is meant "unbudgeted expenditures" and not "things employees spent their salaries on".

Re: [1553] Oops

"Sorry Ping-chan, but Piro-san is kinda busy right now." Not to be a grammar nazi but I believe it is spelled "biZAY". Except Megumii is not gong to be saying anything useful anytime soon; after "Ninja?" she has gone completely bug-eyed and slack-jawed, and will be deep in her own little world for ...

Re: [1552] All of either of them

I mentioned in a twitch chat a couple weeks back how much I admired Megumi's ability to very rapidly "switch gears" emotionally, to go from her usual snarky shell to being very caring and considerate when the situation demands it. (E.g. at Anna Miller's, when she is initially disdainful of Piro doin...

Re: [1552] All of either of them

Also I asked before, why doesn't Ping recognize the old guy. I have been assuming that Sony R&D standard procedure would be to do a memory wipe before she leaves each lab; so before the Old Man sends her from development down to the QC lab, or hypothetically before one leaves the QC lab to be sent ...

Re: [1552] All of either of them

Ping: "He (the Old Man) wants you (Junko)!" I would be very wary at this point of assuming that Ping is actually correct about this. It's clearly what Ping believes to be true, and may very well be something she wants to be true, but that doesn't mean she's not mistaken. (Or at the very least that h...

Re: What are you Watching/Reading Q2 2019

Uggh, you like Kaguya-sama?

How... cute. <sneer of disdain>

No, just kidding. :D Yeah, Kaguya-sama is brilliant, no argument there.

I keep rereading New Normal Class 8, but have yet to settle my internal debate on whether it is awesomely weird or weirdly awesome. :iiam:

They give her a device which will allow her to access fox-like powers, to be used in the defense the...

Because he already spent the money, right? For things that aren't the VN? That's why it IS a scam Any money that Fred (as project principal) distributed as salary -- either to himself (as artistic director), or to a programmer, or any other assistants -- is not an inappropriate use of those funds, ...

As far as we know Ping has a GPS tracker that he has been using to monitor her movements. In 1522 Ping's arrival is "a most unexpected surprise" to him, which it wouldn't have been if he'd been tracking her. And to expand on paarfi's point regarding Ed trying to find her, he too is surprised to see...

To me it looks like he is taking a picture of the area. He will send it to Sony Enforcement Division to have them retrieve his property: Ping and Junko. Maybe... but it seems to me (I may have said this already in a thread or two since 1546) that if he had any interest in retrieval, he would have b...
