Hello! My name is Vix, and I’m a 23-year-old recent college graduate living in New Jersey, USA. As I was scrolling through reading the replies in this thread, it really struck me how many different people from different parts of the world are represented here! I think that’s nearly as exciting as finding a really well-moderated forum for one of my favorite VN series.
I had a roommate in college who loved Higurashi, so when I was asking around for new games to play they eagerly recommended it to me. I read it and I loved it. I loved the close-knit group of Keiichi n Co, and how the story grew and unfolded and called back to itself in really interesting, gripping ways. About a year later I dug into the Umineko VN, and while I liked it it DID take me like six months to read, off and on, so I didn’t find it AS gripping. I’m rereading Higurashi with the steam release right now, and plan to do so with Umineko as well. My favorite sprite sets for both are the PS3 versions.
I found Rokkenjima yesterday, by searching ‘higurashi discord server’. I’ve been looking for new, small-medium servers to join, and it directed me to make an account on here and so I did and then I went to sleep and then I woke up and now I’m writing this post and - well, you know.
Other than 07th expansion, I love VNs in general (both from japan and the really nice english-based indie crop that’s flourishing on steam, like ebi-hime and Love Conquers All games) as well as other puzzle games, walking simulators, point and clicks, hidden object games, exploration games, RPGS, JRPGs etc. I’m a proud achievement whore and I’m working toward raising my steam percentage as high as it can go! I’m tsupertsundere on there, too, so feel free to friend me. I love reading books and have three cats and a dog.
Bonus Question: Why did the cowboy get a dachshund?
Because he wanted to get a long little doggy. ( c; )
